  • ABC News in Same Area As Jim Accoster, saw 15 illegals caught in 6 minutes (video)

    ace of spades blog ^ | January 11, 2019 | Ace citing john sexton & abc news
    The video is from McAllen, Texas -- just like Jim Accost Her's dateline, where he claimed there was no problem at the border at all. Strangely enough, illegal immigrants choose to illegally cross the border in the parts of McAllen where there's not a fence instead of the places where there is one. Go figure! He notes that CNN just doesn't seem interested in reporting the actual facts about the border. CNN just wants to do Trump Dunk bullshit for ratings and partisan cheerleading.
  • EXCLUSIVE: Transcripts of Lisa Page’s Closed-Door Testimonies Provide New Revelations in..

    Transcripts of two closed-door testimonies by Lisa Page, the former assistant general counsel at the FBI, have provided new insights into the actions of the FBI, DOJ, and others—including CIA Director John Brennan—regarding their investigation into Donald Trump. Included in the transcripts provided to us is information suggesting Brennan was aware of the so-called Steele dossier in early August 2016, and that he included information regarding the dossier in a briefing given to then-Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Other key points in Page’s testimony before Congress: The FBI appears to have considered investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice both before...

    Yes, I know what you're thinking - aren't these posts supposed to be written in advance and published at the end of the year so that writers can take some time off and still provide some content? To which I respond, you are absolutely right! But 2018 was by far the busiest year of my life, and this subject was just too good to let pass.

  • Cult of Victim Seekers. Part 3

    Gary Gindler Chronicles ^ | December 10, 2019 | Gary Gindler
    It has long been noted that the leftist movement had transformed into a kind of religious cult – the Cult of victim seekers.Like any other cult, the leftists have their dogmas, their worldview, their taboos, and their idols. The list of “victims” of this cult is impressive. Well-known recent “victims” are nature (destroyed by evil capitalists), domestic animals (evil capitalists mock them), climate (the temperature of the air is warmed up by all the same evil capitalists), and sexual minorities. It is not surprising, therefore, that the numerous left-wing “green” parties in all countries are often compared to watermelons: they...

  • Exasperated Democrats try to rein in Ocasio-Cortez

    Politico ^ | RACHAEL BADE and HEATHER CAYGLE
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold. The effort, described by nearly 20 lawmakers and aides, is part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans. Others simultaneously warn Ocasio-Cortez is destined for a lonely, ineffectual career in Congress if she continues to treat her own party as the enemy. “I’m sure...

    Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the weight and burden of our clutter. We tire of cleaning and managing and organizing.

The research is confirming our observation: we own too much stuff. And it is robbing us of life.Here are 21 surprising statistics about our clutter that help us understand how big of a problem...

Will Ruthie announce her retirement as rumored?

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 1/11/2019 | C Cocoles
    The Pistola Con Caricato Revolver A break-action weapon, the Pistola con Caricato features three barrels, complimented by a very high capacity 18-shot cylinder, which is reloaded via two-piece moon clip-type loading devices. They sandwich the 18 rounds between a holding plate and a firing access plate, through which the firing pins strike the cartridges. The weapon has five operational settings, and the selector allows the shooter to choose which firing pin and barrel would be used to fire the gun. It also has the option to fire from all three barrels at once with one pull of the trigger....

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The ball’s in your court, Alexandria. – Some of you may have seen the tweet issued a couple of weeks ago by socialist dimwit Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in which she said something I actually agree with for the first time: “Next time we have a gov shutdown, Congressional salaries should be furloughed as well. It’s completely unacceptable that members of Congress can force a government shutdown on partisan lines & then have Congressional salaries exempt from that decision. Have some integrity.” Well, golly, our intrepid Millennial heroine is getting her chance to...

    Twin Mustang Restoration ^ | Monday, January 7, 2019 | Tom Reilly
    On 31 December 2018, our XP-82 Twin Mustang flew for the first time since 14 December 1949. Although it wasn’t supposed to fly yesterday, all that was planned to do was the last FAA required runway high-speed taxi test, lift off for a second or two and then back down, deploy full flaps and brake to a stop. It accelerated so fast after the planned lift off that Ray, our test pilot, realized that getting it back down and stopping it in the remaining runway would be marginal. So he pushed the power back up and flew for about five...

    War History Online ^ | 13SEP17 | Guest Blogger
    Late in the afternoon of September 17, roughly an hour before the sunset that would mark the close of the bloodiest day in U.S. history, a Maine regiment met with a wholly unnecessary fate. Just when the regiments’ soldiers thought they’d made it through the battle relatively unscathed, they got pulled back in with disastrous consequences. At Antietam, due to Union commander George McClellan’s piecemeal strategy, the fighting was conducted sector by sector. (General Phil Kearny once described McClellan as “fighting by driblets.”) The severe topography of the Antietam Valley, featuring a field carved into discrete sections, contributed further to...

    Key provisions of the Feinstein Gun Ban: The bill bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name, but it does say existing owners may keep existing weapons. Any assault weapon that accepts a detachable ammunition magazine, has one or more military characteristics (including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock) will be banned. Owners may keep existing weapons. Magazines and “ammunition feeding devices” that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which allow shooters to quickly fire many rounds without needing to reload...

    Every major social, economic, and political problem in the US was either created or deliberately exacerbated by the progressive socialist movement. It all started in the late 1800s with the progressive socialists, newly arrived from Europe, setting their sights on taking over and taking down the United States from the ground up. They weren’t anything new. In their European form, they had long been known to the founding fathers. John Adams referred to their grands-pčres in the French genesis of “ideology” as the “science of idiocy,” the art of sinking deeper than any diver had ever gone into the depths...

    German police say the AfD party chairman in Bremen was knocked down with a “lightning-quick” blow in a suspected “politically motivated” attack that left Frank Magnitz unconscious and with a “bone-deep laceration” to his forehead. The account of events surrounding the attack on the leader of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party in Bremen on Monday night still remains murky, because the victim of the assault was left senseless in the ambush. Magnitz told RT that he has never seen his attackers, who crept up on him from behind just as he passed two construction workers after leaving a New...
