  • AR: Permit holder wins Gunfight with 20 Shots of 5.7

     A Five-Seven pistol was successfully used for self defense in Arkansas on April 13, 2015.  More than 20 rounds were fired, 20 of them being fired by a permit holder armed with what appears to be an FN 5.7 pistol.  The casing on the left is being held by Henry Richards, who witnessed some of the gunfight.  If you look at the casing closely, it is clear that it is a 5.7.  The identifying characteristics are the rimless base shown by the extractor groove on the bottom, and the beginning of the bottleneck shown at the top.  An additional...

    Secretary of the Army, John McHugh, has ordered that “all possible benefits,” be awarded to the families of those murdered by Muslim terrorist Nidal Hassan in the 2009 Fort Hood killings. This comes on the heels of last weeks’ Purple Heart award ceremonies for the Ft. Hood victims of Hassan; award presentations delayed 5 years thanks to the decision of Barack Hussein Obama to mask the Islamic terror murders committed by a fellow Muslim by declaring them “work place violence.” This despicable decision rendered family members ineligible for military benefits and the fallen unable to be awarded the Purple Heart....

    President Obama says that evidence that the Islamic State has opened a training camp in Mexico, just a few miles from El Paso on the Texas border, vindicates his decision to grant expedited amnesty to illegal immigrants from Latin America. "We've all seen the atrocities these terrorists are capable of," the President observed. "Who can blame Mexicans for fleeing? To deny these refugees sanctuary would be inhumane. To deport them would be cruel and unusual punishment. To delay their integration into our society merely on the grounds that Congress has failed to enact the necessary legislation would be barbaric."

Daily, new evidence is emerging that validates my earlier theory about what truly occurred there, a theory that I have long hoped was in error as the implications of it are so sordid that it has cost me all of the faith that I once had in the human race. In light of the now emerging evidence I must once again address the issue as there is much that must be understood by all with the courage and intestinal fortitude to...

    According to Pentagon zombies: The 24,000-employee U.S. Pentagon which, like many government agencies, can only lay claim to having roughly 20 percent of females on staff, is on a crash course to take down the Bible, the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence—because all three “contribute to modern sexism”. Why wait for the enemy to finish off the nation’s three top historical treasures when you can do it right at home in the safety of the Defense Department? Barack Obama’s gutting of the military seems to have left mostly sexism-sniffing zombies sitting behind Pentagon desks. Now that the Marxists...

    Yesterday, TalkingPointsMemo reported that Texas Senator Ted Cruz sent an email to supporters urging them to send him money to make him president so that he could, as president, protect their right to violently overthrow the president. As the email read: The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution isn’t for just protecting hunting rights, and it’s not only to safeguard your right to target practice. It is a Constitutional right to protect your children, your family, your home, our lives, and to serve as the ultimate check against governmental tyranny — for the protection of liberty Cruz’s assertion was so absurd...

    Any mass shooting in America, let alone a single murder, is without a doubt a grotesque reminder of the evil that lurks in our communities. However, as much as I unconditionally grieve for the victims and their families, I refuse to blame an inanimate object rather than the actual lawbreaker. Liberals live to shamelessly politicize such tragedies – immediately blaming the NRA or Tea Party – hoping our Second Amendment rights will be ripped away by an inescapable vacuum of mass hysteria and mob justice.

Of the two, it is the far more serious charge, carrying with it a maximum punishment of life behind bars, a dishonorable discharge, a reduction in rank, and the loss of the tens of thousands of dollars of pay and benefits Bergdahl earned after joining the military over six years ago. The misbehavior charge is so rare that there aren’t many examples of how the military justice system has handled it in the past. The Army said that it had such a case in...

First, all sanctions must be immediately ended. Once this happens we agree to refrain from engaging in any nuclear attacks until, in our judgment, circumstances for a favorable outcome warrant it.

Either way, by his own admittance Iran will eventually obtain nuclear weapons (some in his hire say it already has the capacity), just not while he’s in office. According to...

The opportunity for female volunteers is part of a larger effort to determine the feasibility of allowing female officers to take part in ground combat operations. If anyone had successfully completed the course, they would not have earned the occupational designator or entered the infantry, since the program was only an experiment.

    The Russian Bear is on the prowl In 2008, Russia gained control over South Ossetia and Abkhazia from neighboring Georgia, and then last month, on the anniversary of occupying Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a 25 year Treaty of Alliance and Integration, solidifying control over South Ossetia. The treaty handed border control to Russia, which would also formally take charge of South Ossetia’s economy and military. Residents of the region would also have easier access to Russian citizenship. The agreement, according to opponents, violates Georgia’s sovereignty, and territorial integrity. Russia signed a treaty with Abkhazia in November.

After more than six years of listening to President Obama’s unremitting lies, when he says of the latest “accord” with Iran, “It’s a good deal” and standing in the Rose Garden declares that the U.S. and Iran have reached “an historic understanding” the only history being made his own ignominy and...

    Our entire way of life can be ended in a single day. And it wouldn’t even take a nuclear war to do it. All it would take for a rogue nation or terror organization to bring us to our knees is the explosion of a couple well-placed nuclear devices high up in our atmosphere. The resulting electromagnetic pulses would fry electronics from coast to coast. Of course this could also be accomplished without any attack. Scientists tell us that massive solar storms have hit our planet before, and that it is inevitable that there will be more in the future....

    Frequent Morning Joe guest Mike Barnicle, who quit The Boston Globe in 1998 after the editor called for his resignation amid rumors he fabricated one story and plagiarized another, decided to exhibit more of his unrepressed rage at conservatives for the Daily Beast on Sunday in an article hilariously titled “Why is the GOP So Angry at Everything These Days?” Barnicle somehow managed to use that title while displaying leftist rage, calling prominent Republicans all sorts of names and accusing them of all sorts of character flaws. For example, Barnicle says Harvard law grad Senator Ted Cruz’s “fury” derives from...

    Today the men and women who walk the morally decrepit corridors of the White House and State Department of our Republic-turned-social democracy are aiding, abetting and enabling evil. We find ourselves at a time in history when all of our foes from Islamic supremacists to the Russians and Chinese are ascendant, while America at best retreats and at worst sides with the most dangerous of them. Our enemies do not fear or respect us, our allies do not trust us and little indicates that the American people are cognizant of the size and scope of the perils that face us....

    Ed Peruta initiated the lawsuit that became the Ninth Circuit Court case, Edward Peruta v. County of San Diego.  Not a lot has been written about the man who initiated the case with the potential to reform all the "may issue" concealed carry laws in the country.    Recently, Mr. Peruta wrote a comment about the Ninth Circuits decision to hear the case en banc.  I found the comment on a Hawaii publication.   Here it is.   From civilbeat.com: I have this comment regarding today's ruling from the Ninth Circuit: San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore has had the...

    Bowe Bergdahl "caused a lot of suffering among members of the military" after he walked away from his post in Afghanistan in 2009 — and he may skate on charges of desertion and misbehavior because he still has defenders in the White House, says a former CIA station chief. "We're going to have to wait for a legal outcome here on this case, but the administration has a lot vested in this," Gary Berntsen, who led the CIA hunt in Tora Bora for Osama bin Laden, said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.(VIDEO-AT-LINK)"The administration made the mistake...
  • Can and should Israel destroy Iran's nuclear facilities?

    It has been suggested that Israel should seriously consider destroying Iranian nuclear facilities, but Israeli officials obviously haven't said, and won't say, if, how or when she might. Speaking to Arutz Sheva Friday, Professor Efraim Inbar, who heads the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, said the deal had realized Israel’s worst fears by leaving Iran’s nuclear program essentially intact. The Islamic Republic’s nuclear program has been granted “legitimacy” by the agreement, which still allowed it to continue enriching uranium and to maintain a reactor capable of producing enriched plutonium, he said. “And that’s what worries Israel, that they (Iran) will be able within a...

    Chaos, disaster and death that will remain ongoing for as long as this administration remains in charge, chasing its self-aggrandizing "historic" legacy Adding an exclamation point to the folly of the “deal to make a deal” outcome of the Iranian nuclear negotiations, Iran-backed Shi’ite rebels in Yemen in the coastal city of Aden. Houthi rebels had fought their way through the commercial district of the city before taking over the Maasheeq palace, the former home of Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. Hadi fled the country for Saudi Arabia last month, when it became apparent the Houthi advance was succeeding....

    Muslim nations are rubbing their hands together waiting for the next gift they will get from Obama and his global minions Neville Chamberlain’s name will live in infamy. Chamberlain was Prime Minister of Great Britain when the Nazis were on the rise in Germany prior to the Second World War. Neville was a pacifist, a guy that, if alive today, would have peace signs plastered throughout his office. His foreign policy was much like Barack Obama’s, filled with “negotiate first” and “appeasement” insertions to the point that it was disastrous. Chamberlain’s the guy that believed Adolf Hitler was a character...

    I put a briefing together and spoke at the Pentagon around Christmastime in 2005. The briefing culminated in a slide that raised two central questions: Can overdependence on “moderates” to explain non-Western motivations and beliefs lead us to (overly) depend on them for the decisions we make? Is there a point where the outsourcing of an understanding of events leads to the outsourcing of the decisionmaking associated with those events? Underlying both questions was my concern that decisions central to the warfighting effort are based solely on the inputs of experts on subjects that the decisionmakers themselves do not understand....

    Dear Pat: Although I did enjoy your book Death of the West, for 15 years since I've watched you plunge deeper-and-deeper-and-deeper into your hermetically-sealed isolationist world... so deep, you'll contort into a pretzel -and say just about anything- to defend it. Here's some news for you: 1- It's not our job to decipher whether Iran 'means it' or not when they threaten to destroy Israel... same as it's not our duty (nor problem) to have to try and guess whether the Russians' various plutonium-encrusted threats are actually 'serious'. It's IRAN's and RUSSIA's responsibility to grow-up, drop the trash-talk... or simply learn to shut...

    The Israeli intelligence blog Debka File reports that pro-Iranian Houthi troops have taken over control of the strategic straits (Bab el-Mandeb) at the southern entrance to the Red Sea. This choke point threatens all commercial and military maritime traffic from the oil rich nations bound for the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean. "Control of the Red Sea Bab el-Mandeb Straits passed Tuesday, March 31 to pro-Iranian Yemeni forces when the Yemeni Army’s 117th Brigade loyal to the former Yemeni President Ali Saleh handed positions guarding the waterway to two Houthi commando battalions trained by Iranian Revolutionary Guards. This is revealed...

    After a rocky start, Mississippi appears ready to pass a 90% constitutional carry bill.  Bickering among second amendment supporters seemed to doom constitutional carry in the state early this year.  Hard feelings were ignited between longtime legislative supporters of the second amendment, and serious, unfounded allegations were tossed about.   But it appears that those supporting the second  amendment in the Mississippi legislature have overcome those difficulties and passed a significant reform to restore second amendment rights on Friday, 27 March, 2015.  SB 2394  started off as an incremental reform to amend the concealed carry permit fees in Mississippi. ...
