    YouGov poll: Plurality of Dems think election was rigged, 42% of Clinton voters say she has “good chance” of winning recount I can actually understand the “rigged” claims, sort of, as an expression of pure butthurt denialism. It’s a very narrow plurality of Dems who say so — 36/35, with another 29 percent saying they’re not sure. Some people just can’t process that Her Majesty might have lost fair and square and they’re coping by retreating into fantasies of cheating. This is harder to process, though.
  • Marines Considering Silencing All Small Arms

    Gun Watch ^ | 26 November, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    The Marine Corps is considering suppressing all small arms. Military organizations have historically been slow to adopt new technologies. They have been slow to adopt optical sights, which were overwhelmingly adopted by sportsmen long before they become common for ordinary soldiers. In the U.S. that was during the first Gulf War. Suppressors have been commonly used by sportsmen around the world for decades long before widespread adoption by any military. The United States is the exception, due to irrational regulation. The Marine Corp is in the process of equipping an entire battalion with suppressed small arms. From ameriforce.net: In...

    America was founded to destroy “native Americans” and to find a place to invent slavery which never existed before. These slaves built the country, settled the land, fought its wars and invented everything while white male devils whipped the slaves, oppressed women, keeping them barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen, lying around idly when not destroying the environment. Christians are hateful bigots who want to ruin your sex life while atheists are enlightened believers in science and Muslims practice the “Religion of Peace™” while living in fear of religious oppression.

    December 3, 2016 Petraeus for Secretary of State Is a Bad Call By Rob Caskey In the parade of prospective cabinet picks making their way to the penthouse of Trump Tower to meet with the president-elect, few have come with more pedigree or more (figurative) baggage than General David Petraeus. Tipped for the position of secretary of state, the retired four-star general is considered to bring with him a wealth of experience garnered from nearly 15 years in the higher echelons of the U.S. Army, including time spent at the helm of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as...

    Two questions. One: Who initiated the call? And two: Did he understand the significance of what he was doing when it happened? Not sure about the answer to the first question. I’ve got a guess about the second. Donald Trump risks opening up a major diplomatic dispute with China before he has even been inaugurated after speaking on the phone on Friday with Tsai Ying-wen, the president of Taiwan. Trump’s spokesman also confirmed that the call happened. The U.S. maintains unofficial relations with Taiwan but hasn’t conducted official diplomacy since the end of Carter’s administration, as a concession to maintaining...

    Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) has joined with Sen. John McCain (R-Az) to modify the recently passed Justice Against Sponsors of Terror Act (JASTA). This law allows victims of terrorist attacks to sue the governments that provide funding and sanctuary to terrorists. Graham is concerned that "the existing law can come back to bite us. When Congress overrode President Obama's veto they were thinking 'let's make these Muslim governments pay for the damages done by the groups they harbor.' What was overlooked was the possibility that our own government would be made liable for damage done by terrorists armed by the...

Apparently, during the forum, you accused Mr. Trump and Ms. Conway of ‘providing a platform for white supremacists’ during the election. I seriously doubt that the 62.6 million Americans who voted for Mr. Trump were all white supremacists. But, that’s how liberals operate. Anyone that doesn’t agree with your warped, Eurocrap vision for America is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, an Islamophobe or...

    The incoming Trump administration is being advised to train 100,000 hackers. The new president should also make an effort to develop international norms for hacking, essentially drawing red lines to avoid cyber warfare or even armed conflict. President Obama's special Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity released its long-awaited report Friday night. In it, the panel outlines a challenging to-do list that makes clear cybersecurity is a top national priority. Computer hacking is now commonplace and more dangerous than ever....

    Amy Schumer is reportedly close to being cast as Barbie in the upcoming live action film based on a doll. In a PG plot sure to set off empowerment alarms everywhere, the movie involves Schumer’s Barbie character being booted from the town of Barbieland for not meeting the town’s standards. Barbie expands her horizons, enters the real world and various lessons about self-esteem and body image are learned. Deadline describes it as “a fish-out-of-water story reminiscent of films like Splash and Big,” intended as a comedic twist on what people traditionally expect of Barbie. For the studio, Schumer’s polarizing brand...

    When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent. Meanwhile, the invisible hand that best orchestrates a free people’s free enterprise system gets amputated. Then, special interests creep in and manipulate markets. Republicans oppose this, remember? Instead, we support competition on a level playing field, remember? Because we know special interest crony capitalism is one big fail.

In an interesting approach to this years’ election drama, the couple went ahead and printed their invitation pre-Trump victory with an illustration of Hillary in a Santa suit waving a flag with the caption “Make America Merry Again.” Alas when she did not win the duo, who wrote, “So confident we were of her victory, we designed and printed the attached invitation before Nov. 8th,” were presumably in that “liberal...

As I was still half-sleep, and in lieu of the fact that, in our wishful ways, we, the Cuban-Americans in exile, had killed Castro many times over in the past, the “Cry Wolf” syndrome kicked-in as a ‘defense mechanism’ to spare me the emotional roller coaster, which had made us, time and time again, go from exhilarating highs to lugubrious downs...

    Enough nonsense Michigan attorney general Bill Schuette is surely going to catch heat for this - criticism that he’s strictly acting out of partisan concern because he’s a Republican. And yes, Schuette is a very partisan Republican and has been one for a long time. And oh yes, he would certainly like to be our next governor. But no matter who he is, his legal argument is awfully solid that there is no valid reason for a recount of the presidential race in Michigan. It would be extremely time-consuming and expensive - and yes, the state would bear a huge...

    Current law says no one can serve as Secretary of Defense if he has served in the military at any time in the past seven years When even Trump-hater David French loves the choice, there must be something awfully special about Defense Secretary designee James Mattis: He is clear about the Iranian threat, has worked closely with Israel, and has served as the supreme allied commander of transformation for NATO and the chief of Central Command. In other words, few men have been as closely involved in American military planning and war fighting as Mattis. His speeches and statements are...

    A Saudi Arabian woman faced calls for her beheading after she was pictured in public without a hijab. The young woman, Malak Al Shehri, received a fury of posts on social media demanding her execution after she was seen in public in the Saudi capital Riyadh without an abaya (a full body cloak or a veil). Some said that she should be “thrown to the dogs” or “beheaded” for violating the country’s rules for women. But others, numbering in the hundreds, came to her defense and even praised her “bravery” for going out in public uncovered and for sharing the...

    I watched President-Elect Trump yesterday at what the MSM are calling “victory laps” in the heartland; actually they are “thank you tours.” I also saw his interviews with several Fox News talking heads. To be sure, it was the real Donald Trump, only less bombastic and more presidential. Although he did  scoop his own PR team by announcing the appointment of General Mattis as Secretary of Defense he also passed on the opportunity to say bad things about any of his previous rivals in both parties.This newly tempered demeanor, along with the near universal praise for the thoughtful and seriously...

    I'm looking for Free Republic post editing software. I just upgraded to a new computer with the same OS and loaded the Tree Viewer and Quote maker but the post editing software that showed up before no longer does. Being able to add images or just do simple things like bold or italicize a word is huge and frankly common to all forums these days. Anyone have a link to a working post editing addon for Firefox?

    Jake Hamby has posted these photographs of a small shop manufactured .50 caliber single shot, scoped rifle.  It was captured from ISIS forces in Iraq. Many on the Internets are disparaging the rifle, characterizing it as a "face bomb" waiting to go off.  Several good views of the rifle are shown in the short Youtube montage below. Link to Youtube It is a mistake to judge a weapon by the exterior finish. Sure, the superb craftsmen at pre-1940 commercial Mauser, or Colt before 1970, are known for their excellent polish and bluing.  If you look at war production, you...

    The Obama administration announced its support Thursday for requiring women to register for a military draft — a symbolic move in step with the administration's push to fully open the military to women. "While Secretary [Ash] Carter strongly supports our all-volunteer approach and does not advocate returning to a draft, as he has said in the past, he thinks it makes sense for women to register for selective service just as men must," Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said in a statement to NBC News....
