    On Friday night, 25 November, 2016, the well known and successful yoga instructor Hari Nam Kaur Khalsa, was assaulted by two robbers in her bedroom. Her home and school are 20 miles north of Santiago, Chile.  The robbers were half of a gang of four that invaded her home and school. She, her partner, and two students were in the house when the night time invasion occurred. Khalsa was born in Texas. From dallasnews.com: Officials said a pair of the robbers found the yoga instructor in her bedroom. Despite them hitting her in the head with a gun and...

    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.

    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...

    I shall continue to cherish, relish, enjoy, celebrate the death and passing of worthless brute, Fidel Castro It was about 1:00 a.m., Saturday night, when my wife woke me up to tell me of the passing of Fidel Castro. 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...

    Nate Silver points out, it's looks an awful lot like an effort to bilk desperate left-wing donors out of one last little bit of cash Jill Stein’s multi-state recount effort is, in a word, worthless. She’s admitted as much. There is no evidence of any systemic wrongdoing or errors in either the voting machines or the tabulation. Even proponents of the recount admit it won’t overturn any results. Yet, they press on with an expensive effort built upon nothing more than pretense, innuendo, and rumor. Now, it seems Michigan’s Attorney General has had enough. He’s filed a lawsuit to halt...

    Justin Trudeau is one sick puppy. But he has nice hair As the entire world knows by now, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, prime minister of Canada, heaped praise on the late Fidel Castro, dictator of Cuba. In a release shortly after Castro’s death, Trudeau described the brutal dictator as the “longest serving president” who was dedicated to and loved the Cuban people. Offering his condolences to the vicious thug was bad enough but Trudeau expressed his sorrow not only on behalf of himself and his wife but “on behalf of all Canadians.” To right-thinking Canadians who abhor Cuba’s brutal...

    On election night, CNN guest star Van Jones claimed voters in the rustbelt states had been guilty of a “Whitelash;” that is, a racist backlash against 8 years of a black president. It was the only possible explanation for Hillary’s stunning loss to a candidate Jones accused of being a bully and a bigot. What a difference 3 weeks have made! Suddenly it was the “arrogance and elitism” of the Democrat Party and the Clinton campaign that were responsible for the defeat no one on the left had expected. Maybe Jones no longer believes Trump to be a “bully” or...

    The argument that I make below against the economic case for “buying local” has almost certainly been made by others – perhaps, in some variety, even by me. So I here claim no originality. Still….Many advocates of “buying local” insist that buying local is good for the local economy and, hence, economically good for each person in the local economy. For a number of reasons, the economics on which the “buy local” movement rests is remarkably weak. (Just as it is a sure sign that someone has no sound grasp of economics if he or she believes that protectionism is...

The link is below. http://i.imgur.com/HXFJbBT.mp4 The video shows the person firing with a less than firm grip on the firearm.  Shotguns shells can develop considerable recoil.  Without a firm grip, and only using one hand, the firearm flies out of the shooter's hand and smacks him in the face. It could have been worse. Occasionally a shooter with a weak grip will find that the firearm escapes his grasp while the trigger finger stays engaged. The firearm then may fire one or more shots as...

The ban will affect more than 940,000 units of housing subsidized by federal taxpayers. “Every child deserves to grow up in a safe, healthy home free from harmful second-hand cigarette smoke,” head HUD honcho Julián Castro said in a statement.

The resolution strengthens previous UN-imposed sanctions on the DPRK in response to its fifth nuclear test conducted on September 9, 2016.

Maybe we’ve been lied to and maybe Hillary Clinton had something to do with it.

There are precedents it sets that I’m not sure I like, but we’ll get to that. Here are the basics: President-elect Donald J. Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that he would soon leave his “great business in total” to focus on the presidency, a response to growing worries over the businessman-in-chief’s conflicts of interest around the globe.

    I'll be sure to let all the Christian bakeries know that the left once again gives a crap about the First Amendment. I'm sure they'll consider that to be very exciting news It’s a bad idea. It’s also an unconstitutional idea. Finally, it’s an impossible idea. Maybe that’s why Trump tweeted it. Given his cabinet choices and his early policy priorities, Trump is shaping up like a guy who governs as a fairly mainstream conservative but thunders rhetorically like the populist who proved everyone wrong and won the presidency. No, you can’t jail flag-burners. But if you’d like to tweet...

    Now that they’ve ‘media-monstered’ Donald Trump; now that they’ve left the people of Cuba “terrified” of facing Trump without their oppressor Fidel Castro, they’re making their living in a brand new news game called: ‘All the news fit to Tweet’ So CNN’s “enterprising” Senior White House Correspondent. Jim Acosta is being accredited for “busting” last night’s restaurant meeting starring Donald Trump, Mitt Romney and Reince Priebus in the Big Apple. OOH-EEE!!! “The location was a secret, but CNN reporter Jim Acosta happened to be dining at Jean Georges in New York City when the trio walked in. The enterprising Acosta...

    Why do Republican attacks misfire in the political arena? In 1996, political commentator and author David Horowitz asked that question and many more in a pamphlet titled It’s a War Stupid!, in which he laid out a strategic and tactical playbook on how to battle and defeat the Left. Horowitz contended that Republicans consistently do a poor and ineffective job of forwarding their agenda, especially during election time. And he observed that while “the Left is permanently at war with America,” Republicans had no plan on how to fight back. Horowitz devoted some time reaching out to GOP leaders trying to get...

    This illegal stance on Sanctuary Cities, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, Sacramento Mayor-elect Darrell Steinberg are favoring criminal illegal aliens over the safety of law-abiding citizens. Should pay the ultimate price for not upholding the of law The United States is either a nation of people ruled by laws and Constitution, or we are a nation ruled by ideological tyrants. One example of this is the illegal protecting by “Sanctuary cities” of convicted criminals. “It is time to start locking up local officials like Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for interfering with the enforcement of federal immigration law,” Matthew Vadum of Canada...

    Stunning that this level of stupidity exists I suppose, after watching it for decades, the left-wing’s contortion act shouldn’t surprise me. They’ll ignore any atrocity, turn a blind eye to any body count, and employ the most twisted logic imaginable, as long as the end result serves their agenda. I’ve watched it play out time and time again. Yet still, when someone is willing to defend the likes of Fidel Castro, I’m rendered speechless. Yet, here we are.

    "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" Generations of little kids embarking upon practicing deceit were warned by mothers catching them out and admonished, “The truth will out”. “The truth always comes out in the wash,” as my own Mother used to put it. In the generation of the present day the truth has become more illusive than ever.

    Recent developments have put the so-called “alt-right” movement in the news. They highlight the need for clarity around use of the term and around some related terms, such as “white nationalism” and “white supremacism.” Let’s tackle them.The “alt-right” or “alternative right” is a name currently embraced by some white supremacists and white nationalists to refer to themselves and their ideology, which emphasizes preserving and protecting the white race in the United States in addition to, or over, other traditional conservative positions such as limited government, low taxes and strict law-and-order. The movement has been described as a mix of racism,...
