    Another woman has come forward to accuse Al Franken of sexual harassment: A former Democratic congressional aide said Al Franken tried to forcibly kiss her after a taping of his radio show in 2006, three years before he became a U.S. senator. The aide, whose name POLITICO is withholding to protect her identity, said Franken (D-Minn.) pursued her after her boss had left the studio. She said she was gathering her belongings to follow her boss out of the room. When she turned around, Franken was in her face. The former staffer ducked to avoid Franken’s lips. As she hastily...

    The United States House of Representatives has passed H.R. 38, the national concealed carry reciprocity act. The vote was 321 to 198 on Wednesday, 6 December. The fate of the bill now goes to the United States Senate. The official results will show up at congress.gov in a few hours. In the Senate, it is uncertain if enough Democrats will vote for the bill to overcome the 60 vote fillibuster barrier. Eight Democrat Senators are from states with either Shall Issue or Constitutional Carry law in their states. Six of the Democrat Senators  are from Shall Issue concealed carry...

    Terror group Hamas is calling for a “day of rage” Friday, urging Palestinians to protest President Donald Trump’s plan to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv. The group, designated a terrorist organization by the U.S., encouraged Palestinians in an official Arabic statement to send a message “with all available means” to Israel after the upcoming Friday prayers. It added that making Jerusalem the Israeli capital was crossing a “red line.”

    Spanning more than a decade, former FBI directors Robert Mueller and his successor and protégé James Comey relied on their inner circles to help cover up a surging and troubling amount of sexual misconduct complaints filed by physically violated and emotionally battered female FBI agents. There is a culture of corruption in the FBI. Or the FBI is a culture of corruption.

    I have not been able to get YouTube to work since Sunday. I have posted this question on Facebook, and some say they can get YT on their phones, others have said they have gotten the site to work after rebooting by disconnecting their modems for about 30 seconds. None of these have worked for me. The site, isitdownrightnow.com has been pinging the site several times a day, apparently without success. It has this statement posted: We have tried pinging Youtube website using our server and the website returned the above results. If youtube.com is down for us too there...

    American Civil Rights Union ^ | 12/6/17 | Walter Williams
    ACRU Policy Board member Walter Williams explains that black students all too often are given “fraudulent diplomas” from failing school systems like that in Baltimore, where in 13 of 39 schools, not one single student tested “proficient” in math. His solution is to “break the education monopoly” with school choice, vouchers, tuition tax credits and charter schools.

    I need some advice. I'm unable to continue on in my current occupation in warehousing and storage. I've been doing it for many years, but now my knees are so shot that I can't even do light labor comfortably or stand for very long. I have a friend who is a vocational rehab counselor that can get me set up with a ticket to ride on an education to get into a field that is more compatible with my physical problems. What makes it all the more thought-provoking, is that I just turned 50. That's not old, but old enough...
  • There Isn't Really a "College Affordability Crisis."

    In last year’s campaign for the presidency, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders tried to attract votes with promises of free college. In the British elections earlier this year, one reason for the Labour Party’s surge was its pledge to do more to help students afford college. Higher education has become a very big political issue, with many voters receptive to candidates who want to help them get their degrees. That explains a recent report entitled “The College Affordability Crisis in America.” This thin report was prepared by the Democratic Staff of the Joint Economic Committee and has been publicized by...

    Roy Moore has been taking flak non-stop from the left (and some in the right) about his alleged contacts with several young girls back in the 70's. It is asserted that there are holes in the stories of the accusers and Gloria Allred, who represents one of the accusers, claims to have a yearbook with what she alleges is Moore's writing but she refuses to allow an independent analysis of the handwriting. Moore steadfastly refutes the accusations. The RNC, which had stopped supporting Moore, is now back on board and Donald Trump has fully endorsed Moore. Even Chuck Norris has...
  • Reining in federal land ownership—a drop in the bucket

    Reining in federal land ownership--a drop in the bucket When the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument was designated under President Clinton’s purview in 1996, it created real hardship for regional ranchers. New management rules locked up more than one and a half million acres, discontinuing grazing leases that were imperative to sustain cattle growers who’d been using the land responsibly for more than a century. Part of the impetus for closing off natural resource development at the time was to halt access to one of the best sources of low sulfur coal, including from tribal populations, putting a stranglehold on arid...

    Pedophilia is acceptable if you are a leftist? Apparently if the left did not have double standards, they'd have no standards at all The same leftist culture that created rabid feminism is now condoning victim worship of all females who claim sexual harassment and assault—even before the facts are out. It’s apparent the left is confused, and really doesn’t stand for anything—except for their goal to completely destabilize and destroy traditional America. Power and Corruption Many years ago I remember being told by a veteran old-school police officer that there are no victims; we put ourselves in situations in which...

    Eastern Europeans have a saying: we’ve just got out communism, after 45 years of Hell, only to discover that the West is marching (this time benevolently) into the same hellhole we’ve just managed to escape from. And this is not a joke either. The West’s essential institutions are pathologically corrupted by cultural Marxism, which is just another word for communist infiltration. The Church, the higher learning institutions, the mass media, the corporate culture, the body politics, everything leans heavily on the left nowadays both in the United States and in Western Europe. And anyone who’s to the right of Mao...

    Taking a break from gun stuff, lets talk about pugilist sports. Before UFC and MMA was conceived the debate of a boxer vs a wrestler have been talked about for a long time. Fight fans from boxing and wrestling have always talked about pitting their favorite athletes against the other. Even thugs out on the streets corner would talk about how a good old right cross would take out any wrestler. On the other side a powerful suplex would rock the boxers world. In the past there were promotions at the sports professional level to settle this debate, however, most...

    Mayors from 51 cities from across the U.S. and around the world are meeting in Chicago to hear from former President Obama and sign a document they are calling the “Chicago Climate Charter.” President Trump announced his intention to pull the U.S. out of the UN’s Paris Climate Accord, however, the terms of the Accord delay his taking formal action until November, 2019. The mayors gathered in Chicago, meanwhile, are vowing to bypass the federal government and create climate policies of their own. USA Today reports that the Chicago Charter calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions at least 26% to...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 12/6/2017 | J Hines
    The Browning Automatic 5, most often Auto-5 or simply A-5, is a recoil-operated semi-automatic shotgun designed by John Browning. It was the first successful semi-automatic shotgun design, and remained in production until 1998. The name of the shotgun designates that it is an autoloader with a capacity of five rounds, four in the magazine and one in the chamber. The Remington Model 11 was the first semiautomatic shotgun produced in the United States. After the Remington 1100, the Browning A-5 became the second-best-selling auto-loading shotgun in U.S. history. Here’s an animation of the cycling operation of this awesome shotgun. This...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Now we know why his approval rating in Arizona is 11%. – Hey, remember when Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake used to pretend to be a Republican, just like his fellow Senator, John McCain? Yeah, those were good times, but they’re over now. On Tuesday, Flake wrote a check to ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones, who is running against the very weird Roy Moore for the senate seat in Alabama. Embarrassingly, Flake’s check to Jones, which he made sure to trumpet all over the social media space, was for a paltry $100, meaning he’s...

A self defense shooting, which included a justified homicide, occurred in the 800  block of Waugoo Avenue, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin,at night, on November 5th, 2017.
