    He says there's no doubt about it It was the myth of fingerprints I've seen them all and man They're all the same - You Can Call Me Al, Paul Simon When the left embraced relativism I knew we were in trouble. Now I see how much trouble. If the New Democratic Socialists get their way 2018 will be the year that evidentiary rules are eliminated from America’s pesky judicial system. The NDS don’t feel you should have to produce evidence to substantiate your claims. After all, “my truth” is what counts. They don’t really believe in absolute truths...

    At the top of the news the latest on Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. A "candid discussion" was reported in Saudi Arabia between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Saudi officials including King Salman. President Trump spoke by phone with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. He says both the king and crown prince have denied any involvement or knowledge of what happened to Khashoggi. Trump told the Associated Press that Saudi Arabia was being treated as: "guilty until proven innocent"..... Turkish officials say their search of the Saudi consulate where Khashoggi disappeared after entering October 2nd revealed more evidence of...
  • Mayor of DC to Pick Up the Bill for Halloween Drag Queen Footrace

    This story originally appeared on the website LGBTQ nation under the headline DC Mayor will pay for 100 drag queens to run a footrace through city streets.If you saw that without knowing the source, you’d probably guess it was from a conservative site, likely because the title openly addresses the fact that the mayor is using taxpayer dollars to fund a footrace for drag queens, something that is certainly outrageous on many levels.The fact that this title is written glowingly, not for shock value, shows you exactly how great the ideological gap is between progressives and conservatives.Conservatives have the wild...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) With debates like this, who needs debates? – The only truly notable thing about last night’s debate between Ted Cruz and Irish Bob O’Rourke was the persistent gleam of Richard Nixon-like sweat that clung to the Irishman’s face throughout the festivities. O’Rourke led off with a line reminding the audience about the “Lyin’ Ted” nickname that Donald Trump had tagged Cruz with during 2016, but Cruz neutralized that by noting that that tactic was used no doubt on the advice of O’Rourke’s pollsters, which is no doubt true. Naturally, that did not...
  • Prentis Henry Rifle No. 19

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 10/17/2018 | F Jardim
    One tangible connection to the human cost of the Civil War can be found in the Frazier History Museum in Louisville, Ky., in the form of a beautifully engraved Henry repeating rifle, serial number 19. The rifles were highly prized on the battlefield. Confederates described the Henry as "that darn Yankee rifle that they load on Sunday and shoot all week." THE PROGENITOR of the Winchester repeaters, the Henry was a technological marvel in its time. It fired a .44-caliber, self-contained, metallic, rim-fire primed cartridge. The magazine held 15 shots, and one more could be loaded in the chamber, giving...

    California federal judge’s ruling against Stormy Daniels' defamation lawsuit also ordered her to pay Trump’s legal fees. This means that the useful-idiot Trump “resisters” who donated to Stormy's crowdfunding are paying Trump’s legal fees. HA HA HA HA HA!

    "I have serious concern over Elizabeth Warren's claim that she is a non-enrolled Native American, "proved" by DNA. ..... By trying to make Native American identity about race instead of tribal sovereignty, Warren has done more harm with this DNA test than she ever did with her false claim of being Cherokee. I truly hope authentic Native Americans watch what she does more than they listen to what she says. She is not a friend to us or our tribal governments. Instead, she is a "skeen yoneg" [white devil] and she's leading an attack on tribal sovereignty that could destroy...

    American Greatness ^ | October 17, 2018 | Deion Kathawa
    It’s no secret that the American polity really doesn’t care about, nor does it fully understand, the role or demands of classical virtue—and that it hasn’t for a very long time. But many, especially (and hypocritically) those who derive an unhealthy thrill from scorning, mocking, and deriding any and all expressions of traditional virtue, are absolutely certain of one thing: President Trump emphatically is neither a virtuous man nor a virtuous president. I think they are right he is not a virtuous man. But I also think that’s not a terribly relevant observation. Why? Because the country (at their behest!)...

    I have been thinking for years about the language that the Left uses, such as "We will fight for _____", or "this is a struggle", or "you cannot be civil with...", or "fight in the streets", just to name some familiar and recent examples. The lexicon of the Left is clear and consistent - rational discussion is not tolerated. They don't value the dialectic. Heck, they don't even know what the dialectic is. What worse, the Left doesn't understand what the Constitutional right to assemble and protest means. They think it means they can assemble to physically intimidate their opponents...

    South Koreans have now found the perfect cheese to go with their wine. With craft beer becoming so popular across South Korea, the U.S. Meat Export Federation found “Beer Week Seoul” a prime opportunity to introduce the perfectly paired snack ... U.S. pork sausages. Funded by the USDA Market Access Program and the National Pork Board, the promotional effort included offering tasting samples of Johnsonville and Oscar Mayer sausages to the more than 25,000 visitors. “Our goal was to establish American pork sausages as an easy-to-cook and easy-to-eat choice that goes great with craft beer,” says Jihae Yang, USMEF director...

  • DMV MOTOR VOTER: Just Got My Renewal

    2 things it says: 1) It's a crime to INTENTIONALLY provide incorrect information. That means it's ok for the Sgt. Schultz's on the left to make a mistake. 2) State law REQUIRES automatic registration unless they check off the box intentionally not wanting to be registered. Gives them something to work with even if it's Colin Kapernick. I tell you my friends we cannot get rid of Motor Voter but we could eliminate the word intentionally from the first line-make people more responsible. Two-get rid of the REQUIREMENT. It's a freedom issue.

    Saudi Arabia has not only called the end of Russia’s prominence as a global oil behemoth, but anticipates that Russia’s oil exports “will have declined heavily if not disappeared” within the next 19 years, Mohammed bin Salman said in a recent interview with Bloomberg. When asked whether Russia and Saudi Arabia had made a backroom deal to increase oil production, MbS was more tight-lipped, saying only that Saudi Arabia was “ready to supply any demand and any disappearing from Iran.” With Russia out of the game, Saudi Arabia would have plenty of oil demand to service, according to MbS. MbS...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 10/16/18 | Mitch Wolfe
    Does this clueless woman have no judgment? Does she have no shame? In the 1990s, Warren self-described herself as a “woman of color”. There is a 1997 Fordham Law Review article in which Warren is described as Harvard’s Law faculty, first woman of color. The footnote at the end of the article, because law review articles are rigorously researched and fact-checked for accuracy, refers to a conversation had with the news director of Harvard Law School, in August 1996, which confirms in Harvard Law’s view that Warren is a woman of color.

    Elizabeth Warren is 1/64 to 1/1024 native Peruvian, or something Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren once told We the People that “You didn’t build that teepee!” or something along those lines. Her point being that in terms of the universal gestalt everything is interconnected and there’s no free lunch…or everyone gets a free lunch, or something. In any event, we are pleased to see that Ms. Warren has undergone rigorous scientific testing in order to prove her Cherokee heritage once and for all.

    Flopping Aces ^ | 10-16-18 | Daniel John Sobieski
    In what some have “Kanye Derangement Syndrome” we see the death throes of the divide and conquer identity politics that have long been the source of Democrat power and residual political success. Their mantra was that black conservatives could not possibly exist in the natural world. They had to be some kind of genetically modified organism to which, when someone wandered off the plantation, they would apply that scientific term, “Uncle Tom”. The problem for Democrats is that blacks are leaving their political plantation in increasing droves. In a bit of irony, they are pouring across ideologically open borders. Heeding...

    Cuban Delegation Disrupts meeting on Cuba's abysmal human rights record More than a dozen representatives from the Cuba Mission called by the US UN Mission to discuss Cuba’s abysmal human rights record tried to disrupt the meeting by constantly shouting and pounding on the table in front of them, rather than try to rebut with reasoned arguments and evidence of their own, which they were invited to do, mimicking U.S. Left tactics during the Kavanaugh hearings.

    We live in Orwellian times ladies and gents, and this is proof of fact: the New York Police Department charged 9 Proud Boys for getting attacked by the domestic terrorist left-wing group also known as Antifa. The sad state of affairs in progressive America is that you can be charged and sent to prison for merely defending yourself. Here’s from a Daily Beast article: The New York Police Department announced that it has enough evidence to charge nine members of the right-wing group Proud Boys and three protesters with various counts of rioting, assault, and attempted assault in connection with...

    An American cannabis producer took out a full-page ad in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal warning that the United States is “rapidly losing” its competitive advantage in the industry to Canada, the first G7 member to greenlight legal recreational pot. An American cannabis producer is warning President Donald Trump that Canada is poised to dominate the North American marijuana industry unless the United States takes steps to eliminate barriers to financing and market capital south of the border. A full-page ad in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal, framed as a plea to the White House and its most prominent occupant, warns the...

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced voter fraud charges against four women accused of being part of an organized ring that targeted elderly residents in the Fort Worth area in 2016 and used them to generate forged mail-in ballots, many of which were for Democratic candidates, KTVT-TV reported. A grand jury indicted Leticia Sanchez, Leticia Sanchez Tepichin, Maria Solis, and Laura Parra on felony charges last week, the station said. Paxton’s office told KTVT that the women “harvested” votes by filling out applications for mail-in ballots with forged signatures. Then the women would either “assist” elderly voters in filling them...
