    Those who guard the herd and keep safe the flock will be driven away if you beat that which protects you. How well set are you to protect yourself and what you hold dear against those who band together like a wolf pack to forage for survival? Al Sharpton may be getting what he’s wanted: a race war. I don’t remember when I’ve seen so many assaults on police officers in such a short period of time. I understand when people say they never remember so many: child molesters, child abductions, brutal murder/suicides, suicides, school-shooters etc., etc. etc. (select one...

    Opening Shot “Down the long lane of the history yet to be written America knows that this world of ours, ever growing smaller, must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.” —Dwight D. Eisenhower Two NYPD Police Officers Gunned Down Saturday afternoon, two New York City police officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were gunned down in their police cruiser by Ismaaiyl Brinsley in Brooklyn. Brinsley then fled to a nearby subway platform and shot himself. More details are sure to follow in the next few days,...

    And Is Denied Service By All Of Them Say that “Bestiality Is Wrong” or “Polygamy Is Wrong” and it’s not considered hate speech, but if you have the opinion that “Gay Marriage Is Wrong” the whole world jumps up and down screaming “racism” “bigotry” and “hatred”. This is becoming the politically-correct norm, but no matter what one argues, this is suppressing free speech. No one targeted pro-gay bakeries, but gay activists target Christian bakeries. “Support Gay Marriage” is one Christian bakery was sued for refusing to put that slogan on a cake for an event to support the gay...

    Now that Pope Francis has done his part to ensure that U.S. sanctions against the murderous regime in Cuba have been removed, the Holy See is already looking toward thawing relations with another brutal Communist regime: China. See here. Back in October, Matt Hadro, writing for the Catholic News Agency, explained that: "The state of religious freedom in China is moving from bad to worse, said U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), responding to a new report by the Congressional-Executive Commission on China.

    And I’m not so sure about the other 3 percent, either. It is amazing to behold how liberals will grab hold of the flimsiest statistic so long as it bolsters The Narrative, no matter how easily and convincingly the figure is debunked. These days, the favorite liberal numbers are 1 in 5, 97 percent, and 77 percent. If you keep up, you’ll recognize them immediately, of course: 1 in 5 women are raped in college; 97 percent of all scientists agree about human-caused climate doom, and women only earn 77 cents on the dollar compared to men’s earnings.

    Of course Barack Obama’s latest treachery – normalizing relations with the Castro Brothers prison state – is a terrible thing. It is as fraudulent as Obama is and it will further crush any hopes the average Cuban might have of ever being free. By infusing cash to prop up a torture regime Obama has all but guaranteed the Cuban people’s nightmare will continue after the Castros have died. They need only look to Venezuela to see their own desolate future. Yet, as sad as this is for the Cuban people, it is fraught with dangers for us as well. The...

    There could be an unlikely contributor to the decline of marriage in this country. And it's free pornography on the Internet. A team of researchers, who published their findings in The Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) in Germany, determined that the rise of free Internet pornography is not only correlated with a pronounced decline in percentage of young adult males who are married, but might actually be contributing to the trend. "The results in this paper suggest that such an association exists, and that it is potentially quite large," the study notes. The researchers used data from the...

    Over the weekend two New York City police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, were executed by Ismaaiyl Brinsley in apparent retribution for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously encouraged leftists to protest the city’s police department. Before a press conference on the death of these two officers, police turned their back on the Mayor. They Mayor in turn attacked the actions of the police. It is obvious there is no love lost between the Mayor and the police department. The police union has so much as declared that blood is on...

NYPD officers, 40-year-old Rafael Ramos and 32-year-old Wenjian Liu, were shot, point blank, at approximately 2:47 p.m., this afternoon. The tragedy is all the more heart-rending that the officers were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant when they were shot in the head by a lone...

The choices were: Yes. Increased regulations on firearms are necessary to prevent another tragedy like the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary. No. Laws like this unnecessarily punish lawful gun owners and will do little to prevent mass shootings. Unsure. It’s important to keep the weapons out of the wrong hands, but this may not be the solution. The results with over 100,000 votes cast were startling. 95% (nearly...

    A protective order can be effective.  Especially if it is backed up with a gun.  Protective orders are meant to be backed with armed force.  The problem is that in many cases, armed agents of the state either arrive too late to be of help, or they cannot stay around long enough to provide effective protection.  But when the armed force is in the form of the person who asked for the protective order, the protection is multiplied many times.  In this case out of Indiana, the suspect, Jeffrey Frakes, had been released from jail the day before.From wishtv.com:...

It is part of President Barack Obama and the Justice DepartmentÂ’s new protocols to combat racism. But does it really make sense to try to solve a perceived racism problem in teachers by institutionalizing racism against innocent students? Does using racism to solve any kind of problem make sense?

    Sony’s capitulation in the face of threats by unidentified sources, who are presumed to support the odious Kim dynasty, serves to confirm what most of us have known for some time. Namely, the extent of allowable political discourse in popular culture is inextricably linked to the willingness of the objects of political criticism to violently suppress that criticism. Or, at the very least, intimate the unpleasant nature of the response in store for those willing to offer a dissenting voice. An interview the iconic Indo-British author and apostate Salman Rushdie did with Irshad Manji several years ago is worth watching...

    Coach is Right ^ | 12/18/14 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    So what did we just see happen in our Republican US House? Did John Boehner just do a head fake or what? His quid pro quo with the Democrats gets him and them amnesty along with a Christmas Wish List for Wall Street. In fact, wasn’t benefiting Wall Street the real lynchpin of the massive Omnibus bill, not executive amnesty? Think about it. Boehner now becomes the Wall-Streeter in Chief, not President Obama, whom the Speaker actually used to pass his legislation! Wasn’t the wished for defeat of executive amnesty just so much political theatre, what with the media screaming...

    Yesterday, moments before the North Korea "hacking" tragicomedy escalated into full retard mode with Sony pulling The Interview, or a movie that absent the attention would certainly be a flop, Wired released an article titled: "North Korea Almost Certainly Did Not Hack Sony" (title subsequently changed to the one below as can be seen in the URL alias "http://www.wired.com/2014/12/north-korea-did-not-hack-sony-probs"), which however, and for the better, retains its content as it is quite critical in debunking the latest government "certainty."

    Someone painted this Cobra FS 380 for unknown purposes.  The police claim that it was to make it appear to be a toy, but people have been customizing and adorning the appearance of weapons for centuries.  From fox19.com: CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Orlando Lowery was in court this weekend for allegedly painting his .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun to look like a toy. It is only in recent times that firearms could easily be made in many different colors.  As the capability to do so has emerged, more and more people are taking advantage of it.  Here are some pistols...

    A rogue nation targeted a multinational corporation and won.  North Korea has almost certainly ordered the massive cyber-attack on Sony Pictures, stealing and publicly dumping enough data to make a dent in the company’s stock price. North Korea cannot challenge the United States militarily, despite what movies have portrayed.  Regardless of their saber-rattling, and America’s reduced presence on the Korean peninsula, a real attack of any substance against our ally South Korea (or Japan for that matter) would bring a suicidal level of retribution on the North, and they know it.  But they’ve found a vein where they can draw...
