The blistering speed was reached while at 35,000 feet above Pennsylvania.

    Will liberal outlets like Politifact fact check the geography-challenged Bernie Sanders? Socialists like Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aren't big on math. It just gets in the way of setting utopian, unachievable goals. Take Sanders today. At the very beginning of his formal announcement video, Sanders set this goal: "an unprecedented, grassroots campaign of one million active volunteers in every state in our country."Um, just a little problem there, Bernie. The population of your own state of Vermont is only 627,000. How can you possibly not know that? And there are five other states with populations under one million. So, yeah,...

    Barack Obama is going to have to school Katy Tur on the famous sons of all the 57 states . . . If ever there were a famous Virginian, it is George Washington. Born and raised in Virginia, Mount Vernon was, of course, his historic home. Yet somehow, a confused Katy Tur has claimed that Washington was a "native son of New York." Her embarrassing gaffe occurred today on MSNBC, as Tur handed off the MTP Daily hour to Ari Melber and The Beat. ARI MELBER: Hi, Katy. I wanted to wish you a happy Presidents Day. TUR: You know,...

    Appreciating the 4-inch .45 Colt Ruger Redhawk, 'among the highest achievements in revolver design.' The 4-inch-barrel Ruger Redhawk revolver in .45 Colt is among the highest achievements in revolver design and manufacture. This is an immensely strong gun, as testified by the fact that it is also made in .454 Casul. The strongest and most corrosion-resistant alloys are employed in its making. The cylinder wall thickness is .110 inch and it is made from Carpenter Steel's Custom 465 stainless steel. The barrels are made from Carpenter Steel’s Project 7000 15Cr-5Ni stainless steel. Because they are intended to take maximum loads,...

    In 1999, Australia rejected the idea of becoming a republic, Pokémon took over the world, Ricky Martin struck out on his own, the Euro was created as Europe’s single currency, and we were all terrified Y2K would plunge us all into an apocalypse. But pop culture maniacs will forever remember 1999 as the year in which the greatest rivalry in pop culture reached its peak. The Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, both riding enormous waves of success in the late ‘90s, divided music fans across the globe.

    Safeguarding America's security--and American lives--should be paramount and non-negotiable President Trump’s Proclamation of a National Emergency on the Southern Border has ensured that the consequences of the illegal entry of drugs, criminals and foreigners through that porous border will now be owned by the Congress and not the President—guaranteeing him certain victory in the 2020 Presidential elections. The rush to test the legal validity of Trump’s Proclamation in the Courts was clearly in Trump’s mind even before he had signed the final papers:

    Trudeau’s government was already shabby before this scandal broke—all style and no substance. But even the harshest critics of the bumptious Trudeau could not have expected to be thinking now in terms of criminal corruption Canada’s SNC Lavalin bribery scandal strikes at the heart of the legitimacy of capitalism operating presumptively under the rule of law. It also strikes at the foundations of credible accountability—read honesty and lawful conduct—in the office of Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. It’s been common knowledge for years that SNC Lavalin engaged in corrupt practices, both at home and abroad. The immediate focus is the...

    The Green New Deal is like its predecessor, Occupy Wall Street. It came on the scene with a flash, then eventually faded away like it never existed If Donald Trump was a Putin puppet, they wouldn’t hold that information back (magically without leaks) for two years while Russia was supposedly taking over America through a traitor in the White House. If that were the case, the ones supposedly saving us from this “takeover” are doing one heckuva job, aren’t they? Wouldn’t they be going after the puppet instead of going after the puppeteer and cutting the strings they’ve attached to...

    In committing national economic suicide and sending living standards back to 19th century Twenty-nine-year-old ex-bartender and freshman U.S. Representative (D-NY) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received thunderous environmentalist and media acclaim when she introduced her Green New Deal resolution in the House and Ed Markey (D-MA) submitted it in the Senate. It was quickly endorsed or cosponsored by scores of House and Senate Dems, including many who want to run against President Trump in 2020. But within days the GND was subjected to rigorous analysis (and ridicule) by energy experts, President Trump, Republicans, conservative pundits and even some Democrats. Their disdain is well-founded.

    McCarrick Laicization a Political Bone Throw? Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United states, has publicly expressed his misgivings about the upcoming Vatican summit on clerical sexual-abuse this February 21-25. In a brief essay issued in response to an invitation to participate in a National Catholic Register symposium on the upcoming summit, he says, “I am praying intensely for the success of the February summit” but laments that there is “no sign of a genuine willingness to attend to the real causes of the present situation.” Viganò presents three critical questions, wherein he manifests his doubt...

    Well, this makes perfect sense in a very awkward way. You could say that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is a poster girl for the American Dream. An immigrant from the failed country of Somalia, Omar (who is Muslim) has managed a feat the vast majority of native-born Americans will never achieve: She’s become a member of Congress. But in doing so, Omar’s very questionable, anti-Semitic past has caught up with her. She’s been called out now several times by Jewish-Americans and representatives of Israel for making comments in the past very disparaging of the Jewish faith. The latest gaffe (or...

    This Colorado man fought an Attacking Mountain Lion with his bare hands (Foot) and survived! The 31-year-old runner told reporters that he ran up a nature trail earlier this month near Fort Collins and made his way to the top to take in the sights. But on his way down, he said, he ran into some ice on the trail, so he took a detour and hopped on West Ridge Trail at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, a 2,700-acre park known for its hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. Moments later, he said, he heard pine needles rustle behind him. Then...

    Nick Perna, a former soldier and currently a cop, weighs in on whether the M16A2 or M4 is a better overall weapon system. Age equals experience. One of the few perks of getting old is that you get exposed to more things throughout the course of your life. This includes weapon systems. I've been making a living with a firearm since the late 1980s. In jobs ranging from the military, bounty hunting and law enforcement, I’ve carried a wide variety of handguns, long guns, crew-served weapons and other things that go “Bang!” I’ve personally bore witness to the development of...
