  • Revealed: Hillary Clinton Schemed Since Day After Election to Steal Presidency From Donald Trump

    HUH? The difference stood at 261 prior to the first recount, regardless of the cheating that got them there.

    It is not really all that confusing even for people unable to research further than reading Wikipedia. The margin in favor of the Republican was far greater on election night. Somehow more and more votes kept turning up from urban areas in Western Washington in the days following the election. There should be newspaper articles from the time period available online to confirm this timeline if you want to research further.

    But please do not worry yourself. I understand that you do not find any significance in the election that was stolen here.

    The initial lead by the R was 261. The final count was a 129 vote lead by the D. (from Wikipedia)

    First, go ahead and look up global warming on Wikipedia and let me know what you find. Wikipedia is not an unbiased source of information. This is a gut wrenching experience for me that I remember vividly. On election night Dino Rosi was ahead by a couple thousand votes. Over the next few days more and more votes kept coming in from Seattle and other King County cities till his lead came down to 261. Then they had the machine recount and he was still ahead by around 40 if I remember correctly. During the “manual” recount Gregoire gained another 300 votes. The election was stolen despite the rewrite by an unknown Democrat historian posting on Wikipedia.

    In my state a Republican won the Governors race in 2004 by a couple thousand votes. The Democrats challenged the results. The first recount still had the Republican winning but by fewer than he had to begin with. In the second recount enough “lost” votes were “found” in the leftist stronghold of Seattle for the Democrat to win by 130 votes.

  • Rise of 'ghost gun' kit makers seen in central Florida

    Well, I may have some egg on my face. I read previously that all Golden Arms BM59s were made up from re-welded receivers. I trusted these statements more than my own eyes. I read on one of the M14 forums tonight that there were some that came with original Italian made Beretta receivers. The welds are suppose to be fairly easy to spot. I need to pull the stock off and take a closer look at the markings. This could explain why the gun has held up so well. So thanks schurmann for getting me to take a second look at this.

    If the news weren’t already bad enough, I fear I’m going to convey more. fireman15 won’t like it much.

    I again appreciate the time that you spent on your post very much. And also your concern for my and other reader' safety. There actually was nothing in your post that was upsetting to me in the least. I do apologize for equivocating 7.62 NATO and .308 in my post. Since I reload I am well aware that there are differences in the cartridges. In the past I have been more precise in forums dedicated to firearms.

    I did a considerable amount of research before acquiring the “BM-59” and spent a lot of time discovering the issues that you so effortlessly recited in your post. Before the trade was made I had the gun inspected by a knowledgeable gun smith and collector that I trust who specializes in vintage firearms. The friend I acquired it from, a Korean War Veteran bought it new, and used it for many years but had no idea that is had been made from a re-welded receiver. But I went into the transaction with eyes wide open.

    There actually is no outward evidence that the receiver was made from a re-weld. And there is still the possibility that the receiver was not welded. But in my research now many years ago I learned that every Golden State Arms “BM59” rifles should be considered to be made from a re-welded receiver. I found that the work was done in some sort of jig. After that they were heat treated and refinished in a way that at least in the case of my gun did a very good job of concealing the work. I assume that if one removed the finish completely that the repaired section would become visible.

    I personally have been welding since high school and worked as a millwright for nearly a decade. In mild steel my fabrication and repairs were as strong and sometimes stronger the rest of the structure. But I would not have as much confidence in a part made from alloy steel that was then heat treated.

    My “BM-59” is marked 7.62 NATO. All of the cartridges that I have put together for it have been from government surplus once fired 7.62 NATO brass. And all of the factory cartridges that I have fired through it over the years have been 7.62 NATO as well. I have always been more comfortable using my own reduced charge cartridges in the gun because of the issue with the receiver. Even my own reloads the gun gets frequent inspection.

    So thank you again for taking the time to write a very well written and knowledgeable post. The person I acquired the gun from was disappointed when I told him of what I found out which was very similar to what you wrote me. After using it for years with no problems ever he never would believe that the receiver was probably a "re-weld". The gun had been well taken care of, didn't need any repairs, and he was a trusted friend so we were still able to make a good trade. As I think I said it actually is one of my favorites to this day.

    Just for fun, take a look at the flyer from Golden State Arms at the following link. You might notice that they say it is chambered for ".308 sporting ammunition" and list both .308 and 7.62 NATO in the Caliber Specs. even though mine is clearly stamped 7.62 NATO. They also make no mention that the receiver was made from "re-welded". They call it a "New Beretta Licensed Lightweight Semi-Automatic Rifle". http://www.sturmgewehr.com/dalbert/MGBoards/BM59/BM59_SantaFe_Flyer.pdf

    fireman15 to Starman417

    “further confusing a Nation already stumbling from a confounding eight years of his leadership.”

    Obama has occupied a position of leadership for nearly 8 years. Yet he can hardly be considered an actual leader. The ideas for which he advocates have all been proposed by others. It is not clear even to die hard Democrats what he actually believes or who he actually is, because he has not been consistent in anything other than his sense of entitlement and his disdain for anyone who stands in his way. He can be defined only by what he is not.

    And later another article "Antarctic sea ice at record levels despite global warming.

    From the article. "We know that sea-ice in the Antarctic has increased slightly over the past 30 years, since satellite observations began." I forget the exact figure but I believe the expansion has been something around 8 million square miles, so yes the amount of sea ice has "increased slightly".

    The thing that most people do not seem to realize is by mass most of the world's glaciers are in Antarctica and they are expanding as well. But what would one expect on a continent whose "The mean annual temperature of the interior is −57 °C (−70.6 °F))"?

    Returning to the moon in the next four years would require a Herculean effort. It is not impossible but I don't know if NASA is up to the task any more. It has engaged in too much “climate research” and muslim outreach and has lost its purpose.

    Yes, the NASA of our youth has been gone for a long time now; even the NASA which kept the space shuttle program going was gutted by the Obama Administration and left bleeding out by the side of the road. The name NASA was stolen to give the current batch of eco-loons credibility that they do not deserve. There is no real relationship. This is not to mention the money being wasted on “Muslim Outreach” PR Campaign which was meant to prop up a bunch of 8th century BS and make it appear that the Muslim culture has some relationship to present day technology. Another theft of the name NASA to give a nonrelated organization credibility... sickening.

    I don’t know how you can say it is early. Traditionally, PNW ski resorts (many of them) have been open for Thanksgiving.

    I am sorry. I wasn't really trying to make a statement about the significance of the weather in the passes this year. I was just providing my reaction to the article. Did you read it?

    It is weather, it varies, sometimes the ski areas open even earlier than this especially up at Crystal which is at a higher elevation. But most skiers consider it a pretty good year when the ski areas open by Thanksgiving. Crystal will be opening in the next couple days and they are expecting enough snow to open at Snoqualmie in the next few days also.

    From the Snoqualmie Summit Website:

    “Our 75 year average opening day is right around December 2nd. Of course, we’ve had seasons where we’ve opened in early November and occasionally closer to the middle to latter part of December. We are very committed to opening as soon as we possibly can each ski season!”

    http://www.summitatsnoqualmie.com/mountains/conditions-and-operating-faq#t4n151

    To my wife and I it feels like this winter could end up being a cold one. That is just a feeling from a few decades of living here in Washington. If you think something differently you certainly could be right. The weather around here is very unpredictable.

    Thank you for the very kind explanation. I appreciate your perspective more than you know. I started out hang gliding, moved into ultralight flying, then to experimental and classic airplanes and then on to general aviation aircraft. Along the way there were several people we met who made mistakes and got themselves and others hurt or killed and caused regulators and legislators to want to further restrict the activities of the rest of us.

    We have dozens of mostly vintage firearms. I have never had a dangerous malfunction, but I do not trust any gun not to blow up in my face. I am very systematic and have redundant checks with every cartridge I reload that has enough case capacity to inadvertently double charge. I don’t trust myself a great deal more than I trust a 75 or 100 year old gun.

    Your warnings to those who might trust a gun made from unsatisfactory materials and designed by someone who is not a gunsmith or knowledgeable of ballistics are good reminders to everyone here. That goes also for components like homemade lower receivers which might or might not be up to the task depending on the skill and knowledge of the person who made the part.

    I know that there have been failures of re-welded receivers made up from “de-militarized” pieces that have caused injuries in the past. That is kind of the 1950s and 1960s equivalent to these 80% receiver kits available today. I have a Golden State Arms BM59 chambered to .308 that has a WWII surplus Garand receiver that was “remanufactured” from an original that was cut in half. It has never given me any difficulties but I keep a very close eye on that receiver. As should anyone with a homemade lower used in a AR type of rifle.

    Minus at least 3 million illegal votes and Trump is up 1.5 million.

    The liberal media has been claiming there are 10 million people in the country illegally since Reagan was in office. The number estimated by the department of homeland security even under Obama is 20 to 40 million. The actual number could easily be more than the upper estimate.

    In past elections the states with motor voter laws the number of illegals voting has been shocking when investigated. The actual number of illegal votes in this recent election is likely to be far more than any of us currently suspect.

    I hope that one of the first things Trump does is start investigating this and make the changes necessary to halt this horrible abuse of our election process. Any non-citizen who has been caught voting should be immediately deported and never allowed to become a citizen ever, I don't care if they are the head engineer at a silicon valley tech company.

  • What Your Favorite Rifle Cartridge Says About You

    fireman15 to MtnClimber

    I do like the .308. Strangely, my favorite rifle in my collection is actually is a BM-59 which is basically a Garand with a short barrel which has been re-chambered to .308 and a modified receiver so that a box magazine can be used. It is similar to an M14. I actually got the rifle in a trade. I was very skeptical about it so I didn’t give much for it. The magazines are now hard to find, but I bought a bunch when I found a batch for cheap ten years ago.

    It still has that classic WWII Garand good looks but with a big magazine hanging off of it and that tanker sized carbine length barrel. It is a little heavy to cart around, but is a great rifle for those zombie hunting expeditions.

    I start with surplus once fired US government brass to make up my cartridges. I load them a little light so that I can use hardened bullets that I cast and heat treat myself. The gun cycles very well and the brass lasts a long time.

    The problem is that California has literally been invaded by millions of Mexicans and South Americans. Over 40% of people residing in California speak a language other than English at home and most currently have no desire to assimilate into our society. If one invalidated the millions of votes from the illegal invaders registered when they were given their drivers licenses then the situation looks quite different electorally. The Democrats made it easy for them to vote illegally and actually encouraged them to do it. This sanctuary city crap is to protect all the illegal Democrat votes. At this point Latinos now outnumber Whites in California.

    If you will notice Hillary's book sales have been pathetic and hopefully publishers will have learned their lesson. The speechifying is only lucrative if it is part of a scheme to sell political influence. I am thinking the income earning potential that anyone with a D behind their name has been greatly diminished. For the last eight years Obama’s lifestyle has been subsidized by almost unlimited funds and at some point in the not so distant future some adjustments will have to be made. If these adjustments are not made, it will indicate that Obama has been taking a massive amount of money under the table from various interests.

    In six months Obama's legacy will basically have been wiped out. He has ruled largely by the pen with executive orders and through his regulatory agencies such as the EPA. This stuff can be wiped out with a stroke of the pain and a change of leadership in the agencies directed by the executive branch.

    My BS detector starts ringing loudly any time “climate change” is mentioned. Yesterday a friend of my wife sent us an email with an article from National Geographic claiming that cute little arctic birds were having a massive die off because of global warming.

    When I was looking for some type of verification for this I came across all sorts of other nonsense. The greenies are claiming that house cats kill 3.5 Billion birds a year so a few hundred thousand killed by windmills isn’t bad because those birds are giving their lives so that many other birds will live because windmills are reducing bird killing global warming. They said that overall windmills are increasing the bird population. They even had a chart showing that windmills kill less birds than cars. They also claimed that many more birds were killed by crashing into power lines and utility poles than were killed by windmills. Of course it is all total and complete nonsense and unsupported conjecture, but these people actually start believing their own propaganda. It is called cognitive dissonance and it has become very pervasive in our society. So you can’t argue with these people because actual observational data and scientific reasoning will not change their belief system.

    Even though calling it a "5 year plan" harkens back to imagery from a happier time for Stalinists everywhere; it should be really called an “eight week plan”. That is approximately how long it will be before Trump takes office and sends these idiots packing.

  • No Platforming Half The Country (The Twitter Purges)

    The importance of Twitter in this election has been greatly exaggerated. The only reason I signed up for it was so that I could participate in Lou Dobbs’ nightly surveys. Other than that I couldn’t care less for a forum that allows basically only one liners.

  • Obama Suggests Meeting With Trump Wasn't All It Was Cracked Up To Be

    I felt like making a comment on their forum, but what would be the point? Obviously, they are still in a state of mostly disbelief that the felonious traitor that they wanted didn’t get elected. This was the most critical election of our lifetimes and they lost it in a big way. A few strokes of the pen and the whole house of cards collapses. All that will remain is the over 10 Trillion in additional debt that Obama and the uni-party created.

    We’re trying to cancel our Celebrity cruise because of their snarky ad besmirching Trump’s policies. It may not work, as we’re paid in full. About half-way down the page - “Beyond Borders”.

    Thank you for the heads up. My wife and I will not be patronizing Celebrity Cruise in the future.

    They are performers that have been paid to entertain... dancing and singing monkeys, nothing more. They should all be booted out of the theater on their whiny behinds.

  • California Drought Kills Off More Than 100 Million Trees

    At the end of the article, “People assume the tally amounts to too many dead trees, but fire suppression has created unnaturally green forests with far too little wildfire and dead trees, said Chad Hanson, a forest ecologist at Earth Island Institute’s John Muir Project.”

    “We don’t want too much and we don’t want too little,” he said. “This is not too much.”

    This is a click bait type of article. They headline with what sounds like a terrible disaster, but they end with a statement that it is no big deal. And there is no good reason these trees couldn’t be harvested other than eco-madness.

    A possible parallel to (Luke 19:12,14, 27-28).

    Trump, a businessman and non-politician decided to run for president. Many of his fellow Republicans despised him because of his success and called themselves “Never-Trumpers”. They said we do not want Trump to be our President and we will help Hillary to be elected. But when Trump won the presidency, he said, “Now as for these enemies of mine who did not want me to be president, bring them here so that they may be interviewed for jobs within my administration. And the great Pence shall weigh their qualifications and motivations and if he finds that they are not suitable, he shall slay their political careers before me.

    My prediction, the Job of Attorney General will be awarded to Jeff Sessions a loyal friend and confident and the Cubenadian Cruz will slither back under the rock from whence he came.

  • The North Pole is an insane 36 degrees warmer than normal as winter descends

    Hey WAPO, its called weather! Last week it was in the mid 70s here. Last night we had frost and its going to be in the low 50s. The great white North shares a lot of characteristic with deserts in that temperatures can vary widely from day to day at certain times of the year.

    I just checked the weather in Barrow Alaska, 320 miles North of the Arctic Circle, the northernmost city in the United States. They are expecting a balmy high of 11F today along with 36 minutes of sunlight. Probably not a lot of sea ice is going to be melting today or over the next several months.
