  • Polymer or metal Frame Handguns?

    Cal Sportsman ^ | 4/29/2016 | C Cocoles
    What's your preference when it comes to handguns, would you use a polymer or metal frame? Here's a short excerpt on the sentiment on 1911Forum: 45ACP_1911 I can't get used to the feel of Polymer guns. I appreciate the double stack design and light weight but they just don't feel good in my hands. I've got a Glock 10mm but I just don't shoot it. A 1911 in contrast feels wonderful in my hands and the trigger pull can be made outstanding. What the heck I can change a mag in split second anyhow. motorsporting It's taken me several years...
  • Taking Sides: The Christian's Responsibility in Civic Affairs (Part 2)

    The Coach's Team ^ | 4/29/16 | Kevin Kookogey
    This is the second in a series of essays on the duty of Christians in civic affairs, adapted from Kevin Kookogey’s weekly radio address and podcasts at advancingchurch.com. This week we begin our examination of questions from listeners. 1. Christians should be informed about politics, but should they really determine which political side is correct? How can one claim that it is important for Christians to be informed about politics if the conclusion one draws from the information is deemed irrelevant or off limits? It is, after all, conclusions that lead one to act and to act is to take...
  • The Winds Appear to Have Shifted In Ted Cruz’s Favor

    The Resurgent ^ | April 29, 2016 | Erick Erickson
    There were several events yesterday that suggest to me the winds have shifted in Ted Cruz’s favor since he named Carly Fiorina his running mate. First, John Boehner had a complete and utter meltdown about Ted Cruz yesterday. He referred to Cruz as both an S.O.B. and Lucifer. Then Peter King, the noxious congressman from New York, came out and declared Cruz worse than the devil. He was followed up by former senator Judd Gregg who declared he would rather Trump than Cruz, even though he is a Kasich guy. The fact that . In fact, more polling out of...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | April 28, 2016 | sundance
    A CNN article today points out the internal polling within Indiana is following this consistent pattern: […] Cruz allies and people close to the campaign describe a budding sense of gloom, with internal polls diving as Trump mounted even stronger than expected showings in his native northeast. In Indiana, which Cruz backers once believed they were favored to win after his strong defeat of Trump in Wisconsin, Cruz’s numbers have fallen precipitously: Once leading, Cruz now trails in the state by eight to 10 points, according to a person who has seen the numbers, with Trump over the 40% mark....
  • Men of Little Faith: Anti-Federalists and Article V Opponents

    04/29/2016 1:47:49 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 7 replies
    There is a parallel conservatism shared by the framing era Anti-Federalists and today’s Article V opponents. Conservativism in this sense is the tendency to hold on to what is known and to resist change. We take it for granted, but thirteen heterogeneous societies joining in common defense was not inevitable. By 1787, both Federalists and Anti-Federalists foresaw approaching dissolution of the union under the Articles of Confederation (AC). A decade of experience with state constitutions had revealed their defects or weaknesses, and induced among many Americans an inclination toward change. Either the independent republics must join in a more perfect...

    Reprinted from the Oregon Observer for April 1997 with permission [Note: See Becraft on the Missing 13th.

They uncovered probably the most explosive evidence ever uncovered in our history. They uncovered the United States Constitution printed in 1825, which was to prohibit lawyers from serving in Government. Extensive research since then has uncovered the following: 1.) The unlawful removal of a ratified 13th Amendment from the US Constitution. 2.) The Amendment...

    ... If Syria’s largest city is surrounded by government troops, the strategic situation in Syria could change very rapidly for the worse, not only for Syrians, but also for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan—and for the Obama Administration, which has banked heavily on the crumbling peace talks to end five years of civil war and an expanding presence for ISIS amid the chaos. The encirclement would also be a major strategic advance for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has drawn his forces in Syria, but has also been helping the Assad regime conduct more focused military operations under a two-month...

    I’m glad he said this because the only proper way for this campaign to end is with Kasich deciding, out of pure pique, to compete hard in Indiana and try to spoil Cruz’s last chance there even though Kasich needs a brokered convention as much as Cruz does. It’d be a perfect microcosm of the wider party’s impotence and strategic idiocy all year long in failing to stop Trump. Burn it all down, John. Cleanse it with fire. “I recognize that the media is all eager to talk about an alliance. There is no alliance,” Mr. Cruz said. “Kasich and...

  • $500 Billion In Lost Oil Revenues Forces Gulf Nations To Turn To Debt Markets

    04/28/2016 2:24:51 PM PDT · by bananaman22 · 9 replies
    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has projected a whopping $500 billion loss in revenue for the Gulf nations in 2016, which is 30 percent more than the $390 billion lost in 2015. The massive shortfall has crippled the gulf economies, which are facing record budget deficits and seeking external funding to overcome it. Many experts believe that $100 per barrel oil prices are history, and we might not revisit those prices for more than a decade. It implies that the recent crisis will not end as quickly as the downturn in 2007-2009. The oil-dependent nations will have to figure out...

    Energy-rich Iran, which is the fourth country in the world for its proven oil reserves of 158 billion barrels, has discovered shale oil reserves in the Lorestan Province. This was announced by the Director of Center for Exploration and Production at the country’s Oil Ministry, Mohammad Reza Kamali on April 25. The project of studying the shale reserves is completed by 47 percent, he said, adding that the studies, conducted in cooperation with German RWTH Aachen University prove the existence of significant reserves of shale oil in Lorestan Province. However, Kamali did not disclose whether Iran plans to extract shale...

    Oilprice.com ^ | 28-04-2016 | Chemokuurtje
    Oil prices surged to their highest levels in six months on Wednesday as the Fed left interest rates unchanged. WTI jumped by 2.8 percent to $45.29 per barrel and Brent climbed by 3.17 percent to $47.19 per barrel. Those are the highest prices so far in 2016 and the oil markets continue to bet on rising momentum for crude. The Federal Reserve added strength to oil when it announced its decision to leave interest rates unchanged, a move that caused the dollar to weaken and oil prices to rise. The Fed also softened its language regarding its concerns over the...

    Tesla Motors recently reported that it has received close to 400,000 orders for its yet to be released, $35,000 Model 3. Most of the pre-ordered vehicles are not even expected to be delivered until after 2018. While congratulations may be in order to Tesla for seemingly developing a mainstream electric vehicle (EV) that has so much consumer interest that demand is far outpacing supply, one question must be asked. Why the hell is the vehicle being subsidized to the tune of $1.5 billion in future tax credits? If Tesla has proven that EVs can be profitably manufactured, it is...

    Fear is a great motivator. Fear will make us do things we never thought we were capable of and drive us to success in sometimes impossible situations. Fear is a very effective agent for overcoming complacency. Fear has driven Donald Trump’s supporters to the polls in numbers not seen before. And fear will generate a tsunami of votes that will crush Hillary Clinton next November. We are afraid of many things but mostly another four years of gangsters running our lives from Washington. We fear that Hillary Clinton would govern just like Barack Obama and maybe worse in some cases....

Steve Deace, an Iowa-based talk show host, not only endorsed Cruz but is also a prominent campaign surrogate for the Texas senator. Cruz has hailed Deace as “a truth-teller, a courageous conservative, and a powerful voice for liberty,” featured him in a campaign advertisement and added him to his Iowa leadership team. Deace eventually apologized for the anti-Fiorina tweet, saying that his wife told him to. When Fox News' Megyn Kelly asked Fiorina about Deace's comments,...

This premature attempt at crude oil exports could have huge implications for international efforts to unite the country under the new Government of National Accord (GNA), which was formed with UN support, because eastern Libya is controlled by a government based in Tobruk, which has not yet recognized the GNA of Fayez Serraj.

    Among the more intriguing results from Tuesday’s primary contests, the crowded race to fill the heavily-Democratic Eighth Congressional District in Maryland featured none other than the wife of Hardball host Chris Matthews whose candidacy included accusations that the couple leveraged their coziness with the D.C. and Hollywood elite for campaign donations. Unfortunately, MSNBC made no mention of this race during their live results coverage when polls closed at 8:00 p.m. Eastern until 1:00 a.m. Eastern and along with the MSNBC personality being absent from the coverage due the the campaign but, most importantly, that Kathleen Matthews finished in third.

    Do it, Bernie, you owe it to the future. Bernie Sanders is being beaten. He’s losing in both the delegate count and the vote, but it’s not his fault. He’s “running as a Democrat” and he’s being treated horribly by the Democrat party. At every turn, the DNC has done its best to game the system and rig the election against the poor old socialist coot who has dared challenge the coronation of Hillary Clinton. ....And it hasn’t gone unnoticed. At least one man has Bernie’s back. He’s calling out the DNC’s behavior, and urging Bernie to make a strong,...

    The Complete Colorado ^ | April 27, 2016 10:29 AM | Peter Blake
    Future presidential primaries in June? It’s possible that the Colorado legislature will re-establish the presidential primary that lasted for three elections (1992, 1996, 2000) but it won’t be in the form that the House State Affairs Committee approved on Monday. House Bill 1454 escaped committee on a party-line vote, with the Democratic majority on top. Presuming passage by the Appropriations Committee Thursday morning, it is likely to be debated on the House floor Thursday afternoon.

    Carly spotted in Indiana Yesterday, we discussed rumors that Ted Cruz was vetting Carly Fiorina for the VP slot. Allegedly, he was going to announce his running mate early, in order to drum up some positive press, generate a little momentum, and make people forget about his then-impending East Coast drubbing. Now, as the Hoosier State is looking more and more like Cruz’s last chance to stop Trump, it appears like the big day has arrived.
  • John Kasich’s Campaign Has Decided That In Oregon Incompetence Is Their Competitive Advantage

    Monday the big news was the Hunger Games-style alliance between Ted Cruz and John Kasich. If return for Kasich giving Indiana a pass, Cruz would give Kasich a free hand in Oregon and New Mexico. Leon pointed out that Kasich’s monumental ego would probably prevent the agreement from actually working. There is actually a better reason. Kasich is an idiot and his campaign manager, John Weaver, is a cretin. John Kasich, one of only three still-standing GOP presidential candidates, isn’t featured in Oregon’s voters’ pamphlet for the May primary election — an embarrassing blunder for any major campaign.

    Short video: 1:49 about "secret" Cruz memo that shows Lyin' Ted stabbling Kasich in the back. Transcript: The Ted Cruz – John Kasich alliance announced with great fanfare on Sunday quickly broke down when a Cruz insider leaked a confidential memo telling Cruzbots to ignore the warning not to vote for Cruz in the Oregon primary to be held on May 17 and the New Mexico primary held on the last day of the primary season, June 7th. Cruz & Kasich announced that Kasich would stop spending money in Indiana if Cruz would stop spending money in Oregon and New...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 4/27/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    If they truly believe beating Hillary Clinton is the real goal for Republicans, Ted Cruz and John Kasich have to suspend their campaigns and go home. The voters have spoken and rejected them. For months many honest-and some not so honest-people backed the candidacy of Texas Senator Ted Cruz in the Republican primaries. They stood by Cruz as the façade of his “impeccable” conservative credentials crumbled when even mildly questioned. They were with him when he acted in a very un-conservative manner in Iowa. They defended him as he built his campaign war chest with shady arrangements with Citi Bank....

    If you are so convinced that Donald Trump will lose to Hillary Clinton in November and in doing so, pull down the whole Republican Party, here are a few questions to consider. “If he were to gain the nomination, which single state (I’ll make it easy) would Ted Cruz win that Mitt Romney did not win?” “Do you think that Donald Trump would roll over for Hillary Clinton without hitting her over and over again on the numerous crimes she has committed and vulnerabilities she has?” “You know, like McCain and Romney did for Obama.” “Do you imagine this would...
