    Text from Liveleak: This Type 10 Destructive Device manufacturer specializes in 7.62mm Miniguns, flamethrowers and artillery, which means they probably don’t have time to bleed. This tactical backpack takes the good old M134 GAU-2B/A six-barrel rotary buzzsaw and adds a power source and enough 7.62x51mm NATO in a backpack to give you one heck of a (short) blast.

    Racism everywhere! You already know that ESPN has fallen very far, from its heyday as the global leader in sports programming to its current pathetic state as a pusher of left-wing social sensibilities that uses sports a foil. ESPN celebrates on-air personalities like Tony Kornheiser, Michael Wilbon and Stephen A. Smith for their courageous liberal pronouncements. (For the record, I love Smith . . . but he is what he is.) ESPN fires conservatives like Curt Schilling who express their opinions, even when they do so off the air and completely apart from their role on ESPN.

Not that you would, with NBC, the Washington Post, NESN and the New York Times all breathlessly covering this story in the past few days. If you’re a New England Patriot and you don’t want to go to the White House because you hate Trump, you’re very big news. Here’s the report the nation needs to fend off the fall of the republic, courtesy of The Hill:

    Forbes ^ | February 9, 2017 | Nathan Vardi
    Donald Trump has already beaten Bush and Romney in the political arena, but will Trump’s extended family now also beat them both on the baseball diamond? Forbes reported on Thursday that Jeff Loria, the owner of the Miami Marlins, has a handshake deal to sell the baseball team for $1.6 billion to a real estate developer in New York City. Subsequently, reports emerged that the Kushner family, which made its money in real estate, was negotiating to buy the Marlins. Jared Kushner is married to Ivanka Trump and serves as an adviser to President Trump. The Kushner effort is being...

    Eagles safety Malcom Jenkins isn’t one to keep his opinions to himself. Jenkins was one of many NFL players who visibly protested during the playing of the national anthem, raising his fist in protest before many Eagles games this season. On Thursday, Jenkins took to Twitter to blast President Trump for signing an executive order that seeks to increase penalties for those who commit violence against state and federal police, but makes no mention of those killed by law enforcement...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 02/07/17 | Dan Calabrese
    In the finest Orwellian language, they claim people who sneak across the border are on a "migrant journey toward becoming legal American citizens." Why would a lumber company get political in a Super Bowl ad? Furthermore, why would it stake out a position - celebrating illegal immigration - that cheerleads for lawbreaking? Since the ad is obviously a PR move and not designed in any way to sell lumber, it has to have one of two motives behind it: Either the company thinks the public is generally in favor of people sneaking across the border and entering the country illegally,...

    CNN ^ | February 5, 2017 | Jill Martin
    For the first time, a Super Bowl needed overtime, and for the fifth time, the New England Patriots are Super Bowl champions. This time, it took the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history to do it, defeating the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 at NRG Stadium in Houston in Super Bowl LI. Atlanta had a 28-3 lead midway through the third quarter. But a costly Atlanta fumble by quarterback Matt Ryan with 8:31 left in the fourth quarter helped set up the Patriots to come all the way back. It was the first time the Falcons had turned the ball over in...

    Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, watched the Super Bowl at the Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach, Florida. The gathering was held in a large ball room. Trump and Melania sat at a table that included Chief of Staff Reince Priebus: Donald Trump is well known for his ties to the New England Patriots. He has long-lasting friendships with Patriots owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick, and star quarterback, Tom Brady. Belichick even wrote a letter to Trump praising him effusively after Trump was elected, Kraft attended the inauguration, and Brady had a “Make America Great Again” hat...

The Super Bowl arguably is the most watched entertainment event in America. But why is the public, year after year subjected to Satanic symbols, dark entertainment themes and offensive displays of female nudity at outrageous ticket prices?

It is not simple to determine the rate of fatal firearm accidents in the United States over the long term.  In this article three sources were used.

Rates were calculated using Census figures.  From 1999-2015 numbers were available in WISQARS, population for per capital rates was taken from U.S. Census figures. For the overlap cases, the...

    Stanley Cup > Super Bowl I’m from Detroit. We’re saddled with the Lions. This means I’ve never faced a scenario where I actually care about the outcome of a Super Bowl. For me, the game is more about having friends over, opening a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle, and stirring up a massive pot of my award-winning* chili. We watch the game, the ads, and the usually-terrible halftime show without any real investment in the winners and losers. It’s an “entertainment thing” more than a “sports thing.”

    After a somewhat listless 0-0 draw against Serbia on Sunday, the US men’s national team will look to really shake the rust off on Friday, when they host CONCACAF foe Jamaica in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The friendly will be the final opportunity for US players to impress manager Bruce Arena ahead of the crucial World Cup qualifiers against Honduras and at Panama in March. It’ll also be the last shot for Arena, who used a lone-striker formation against Serbia, to settle on tactics ahead of those hugely important Hex matches next month.

    Fumble It appears football players are much wiser than journalists. That probably comes as no surprise to most of you. Instead of football players I could have said “prison inmates” or “derelicts” or “mollusks,” and most of you would have considered it obvious that they are wiser than journalists. Maybe not more book-smart, mind you, but it’s one thing to be in possession of a lot of information. It’s another thing to be able to exercise good judgment in what you do with it.

    California has banned state-funded travel to Kansas after determining that the Sunflower State is one of four in the nation with laws that it views as discriminatory toward gay people. The policy could prevent public universities in California from scheduling sporting events with Kansas teams and raises the question of whether teams will travel to Wichita in 2018, when the city is scheduled to host two rounds of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. “California must take action to avoid supporting or financing discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people,” states the California law, which was passed in September.

Trump’s 10 year-old son of slaughtering “100 small animals.” Not only did Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn), a sports writer, fail to provide any proof - he didn’t even have enough respect for the president’s son to spell his name correctly, declaring: “Baron (sic) Trump has killed no less than 100 small animals.”

Magglio Ordonez deserved better than his one-year-and-out fate. Carlos Guillen deserved better than zero votes. You may disagree, and you might even care about players who never played for the Tigers, although I can’t imagine why. But that’s one of the things the Hall of Fame elections are for - debate among fans.

Sticking with the basketball metaphor, he explained: “He’s who we put our hopes and dream with. Now it is easier because we haven’t played a game yet. No reason to rush to judgment or come to any conclusions now. Let’s see what happens starting January 21st and we’ll go from there. I hope he’s a superstar.” This is an abrupt reversal for...

    The United States women’s national team (USWNT) defeated Romania, 8-1, in the first of a pair of international friendlies with the team. The win comes in the teams’ first ever meeting and the next-to-last match in the USWNT’s 2016 schedule. Despite the high score line, the game lacked much excitement, as the USWNT easily dominated possession in their offensive half for what felt like the majority of the match. That was largely because of the efforts of veterans Christen Press, Alex Morgan and Tobin Heath and fellow Olympian Crystal Dunn. Press was one of the most dynamic players on the...

By one account, available data shows a 30% drop in viewership for Monday night’s game between “Somebody and Who cares?” Naturally the leftists in sports writing are telling us it’s the bland product or the movement to appliances they can’t track that are causing the steep drop in viewership and “blah blah blah;” anything but the truth.

    I can't believe we have no Ryder Cup thread open on the final day. Both teams are pouring in birdies by the bushel. I have never seen such fantastic golf.

    Gone... Call this mainly a feel-good video to start your day with - a gift from us to you before we return to whatever nonsense Hillary and her media megaphones are trying to shove down our throats today. When the New York Mets signed Tim Tebow to a minor league contract a few weeks ago, the signing was widely derided as a silly publicity stunt - particularly by one especially contemptible sportswriter known to our readership as a vindictive obsessive stalker cockroach. But that’s what Raid is for.

    Some protests are more worthy than others, apparently We must respect Colin Kaepernick’s protest against the national anthem, we are told, because the right to protest is sacred and never to be questioned, and the last thing we should ever do is turn some inanimate piece of cloth into an idol that’s more important than our right to express our true feelings. Remember: American flag = mere piece of cloth. Not sacred. Not entitled to respect. In fact, the refusal to stand for it is entitled to the ultimate in respect. Get it straight. So then, if the American flag...

    Sam Allardyce is set to resign as England manager - bringing an end to his reign after just 67 days. Allardyce held showdown talks at Wembley with Football Association chiefs after it emerged he used his new position to negotiate a £400,000 deal with businessmen and offered them advice on how to get around FA transfer rules. And the 61-year-old is expected to announce his decision on Tuesday night to leave the job he coveted for so long.

    For writing a few conservative social media posts, Steve Clevenger became the target of obsessive stalker Bob Nightengale We told you Friday about the disgusting attack leveled against Seattle Mariners catcher Steve Clevenger by USA Today columnist Bob Nightengale. Because Clevenger had made a couple of posts on social media criticizing Black Lives Matter, President Obama and the Charlotte rioters, Nightengale went on the warpath, demanding that the Mariners release Clevenger. The posts were harshly worded, but they weren’t inaccurate and they certainly weren’t racist. Didn’t matter. Nightengale simply labeled them as such and that’s apparently all that needs to...

    I was a police officer for 36 years. Prior to being a police officer I served six years in the U.S. Air Force, four on active duty and two in the reserves. Before that, my fondest memories, while growing up, are of going to the VFW with my dad on Friday night for their fish fry or clam bake. When I was in high school I played on that VFW Post’s Drum & Bugle Corps. My Dad served in the Merchant Marine during WW II, and recounted having been torpedoed once while on a North Atlantic convoy. All of my...

    The United States of America, your community, your state, our nation—faces becoming a “Throw Away Country.” While San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick created the latest sensation by dishonoring our flag, our military men and women who fought and died to make this a free country, and our national anthem—he represents a rip tide of angry, misguided and anti-American citizens or non-citizens growing in strength and numbers daily. If we celebrate another 10 million or 50 million Colin Kaepernicks, will we survive? In the past month, high school students disgraced our national anthem by kneeling in irreverence and protest against our...
  • NFL’s end run to the left doesn’t sit well with Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon

    “Kilgannon Demands NFL Halt Anti-American Protests” Not everyone agrees with the radical swerve to the left exhibited by the National Football League during the past years. On September 6th, Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon addressed a direct though respectful letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, asking that he put an end to the Anti-American, National Anthem protests of San Francisco Forty Niners’ reserve Colin Kaepernick and other players. Speaking “…on behalf of those we represent at Freedom Alliance – military heroes and their families,” Kilgannon made certain to remind Commissioner Goodell that the NFL, its teams owners and players are...
