  • Another Bear Spray, Gun and Grizzly National Park Incident

    Gun Watch ^ | 26 November, 2014 | Dean Weingarten
    I actively look for and monitor defensive uses of firarms.   While some defensive uses of firarms are common, such as driving off intruders from a home, others such as defense against a grizzly bear, are rare.  They tend to stand out when they happen.   I missed this one, even though it did get some coverage in 2013.  The actual defense occurred two years ago in November of 2012. It is especially interesting because both bear spray and bullets were used.  The only other one that I recall happened this year. The bear was killed by the gunfire, dropping, literally...

    Following the grand jury’s decision to not indict Darren Wilson, a white police officer in Ferguson, MO who shot and killed an unarmed Black teen named Michael Brown, racial tensions are running high which has prompted a number of African-Americans to call for a financial boycott of the historical “Black Friday” sales which are highly profitable for retailers during the holiday season. Joining the call for a boycott is Grammy award winning singer Toni Braxton. The sultry singer took to her Facebook page on Tuesday to post a meme with an image of slaves that reads: “DID YOU KNOW: Black...

This is why people will do anything to get to our shores. We have a Bill of Rights and a full Constitution to protect us thanks to...

    How Obama’s amnesty will give non-citizen law-breakers access to a “wide array” of programs — and an advantage in the job market. Apparently President Obama’s unilateral decision to grant de facto amnesty to five million illegal aliens was insufficiently outrageous. On Tuesday, a White House official told the Washington Post that many illegals now protected from deportation will be eligible to receive a “wide array” of government benefits, including Social Security and Medicare. The admission verifies that, once again, Americans are forced to endure another lie perpetrated by the president. When he announced his executive action last Thursday, Obama was...

The revolvers are an eclectic mix of Smith & Wesson (or clones) and Colt (or clones) revolvers.  They appear to mostly...

    Yesterday President Obama lent his support to the spirit behind the rioters in Ferguson. He declared their frustration is rooted in “hard truths.” Obama actually called the rioters criminals before saying they should work with him. It’s nice to see the President’s narcissism never takes a break. Perhaps the highlight of his comments from yesterday is when he declared that he wouldn’t comment on a local situation such as Ferguson because it isn’t the job of the President to comment on ongoing investigation of specific cases. Maybe the President has finally learned his lesson after ‘the cop acted stupidly’ and...

They are criminals. They find any excuse for their antisocial and violent behaviour. Of course they side with their fellow delinquent Michael Brown against the man who represents the law, Officer Darren Wilson.

    We hear very little about the treatment of Christians in Israel. Among the terrible persecution that Christians face in Muslim countries in the Middle East and elsewhere, Israel is usually portrayed as a beacon of tolerance where Christians are free to follow their faith without fear of being killed. Everything is relative. Looking at what happens in Israel's neighbouring countries, where Christians are forced to convert to Islam, humiliate themselves by becoming second-class citizens and paying the extortionist jizya tax, die or flee, Israel may indeed seem a good place for them to live. Israel has no policy of...

We know Obama’s allies in the Republican Establishment (GOPe) are not on America’s side and although this complicates our task, it does not make it impossible. There are some things we could do, such as; mass deportations; withholding funds for Obama’s actions and/or blocking them with a government shutdown or even bringing impeachment proceedings against him.

    Justice is the furthest thing from what is going on in Ferguson.  That’s not because the legal system, as it’s constructed, failed.  The legal system did not fail.  A grand jury’s job is to decide whether to issue an indictment when potential charges have been presented.  The St. Louis County grand jury, a body of laypeople, not law enforcement, lawyers, or politicians, examined evidence in the Michael Brown shooting for three months.  They decided not to issue an indictment on any charge against officer Darren Wilson.  The legal system worked. What has failed is leadership. When President Obama took office,...

    Police Officer Darren Wilson was not indicted by a grand jury for the murder of Michael Brown. Based on the evidence it is clear that Wilson shot Brown in self defense. Brown had already robbed a convenience store, he had already attacked Wilson once trying to steal his gun. The evidence indicates that Brown charged at Wilson and Wilson shot him dead. There is no indictment because Wilson was completely justified in using force. That doesn’t matter to the progressive community organizers in Ferguson who are currently inciting the mob to burn the city to the ground. President Obama hasn’t...

    The grand jury has found that there is no probable cause to charge white police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, a gargantuan, drugged-out gangsta-rap thug who recorded violent rap songs about killing white cops. The grand jury was comprised of six white men, three white women, two black women, and one black man. Nine of the twelve jurors would have had to vote to indict Wilson, for him to be charged with first degree murder, second degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, or involuntary manslaughter. From the early stages of this case it was pretty clear that the...

A ninth-grade world-history teacher assigned an in-class worksheet about Islam which the pupils had to fill in with the "correct" answers (the worksheet's first part is in the above picture). FALSITIES TAUGHT AT SCHOOL Some of those answers were that Islam is a peaceful religion, Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world and most Muslims' faith is stronger than the average Christian. Islamic Scriptures and history are testament to the fact that the exact opposite of the...

    Transcript of Paul Weston’s speech: Well, hello all. Thank you again to Steve Eddowes for asking me to come down and speak to you today. After my last speech a lot of people have been emailing me saying, “How come some middle class nancy-boy like you supports the EDL?” And I’ve got a very simple answer for that because at the moment the EDL are the only people in this country who are standing up for what’s going on. We, in twenty-first century England, are looking at a battle for survival over the coming decades — the battle for western...
