Federal Raid on Ghost Gun Operation Shows Danger of Untraceable Firearms (barf alert)

Federal prosecutors have indicted an Oregon man for allegedly running the state's largest "ghost gun" manufacturing workshop, a case authorities say highlights how the homemade firearms can fuel crime. A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted Tyler Ray Harnden on charges he allegedly provided fentanyl-laced counterfeit oxycodone pills to people with substance abuse disorders in exchange for making illegal straw purchases of firearms. The charges stem from a raid on Harnden's Salem residence in February. There, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and local police found dozens of homemade firearm components, three drill presses and...
 

Backfire: Chuck Schumer Just Put Vulnerable Senate Democrats in Mortal Political Danger

Schumer might have banked on his announcement about the vote as a show of strength, but it’s almost certain to backfire. In a nutshell, Schumer is making the matter worse by forcing the vote if the bill is doomed to fail. This will weaken the Democrats’ position in Senate and make the whole party look ineffective, which will especially hurt those running for re-election in competitive states who are already vulnerable because of the Biden administration’s failures, ranging from illegal immigration, to the coronavirus, to the economy to foreign policy. It also makes Schumer himself look weak, but this is...
 

Political delusion sends young people running toward avoidable danger

American Thinker ^ | 18 Nov, 2021 | Nadra Enzi
Although leftists love to say they’re doing things “for the children,” the ideology they’re selling encourages young people to take dangerous risks. The past several years have seen me contemplating those children who came of age after Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri. They are now older teens and young adults who watched George Floyd’s death and the January 6th, 2021, protest in DC., two events that undoubtedly confirmed their hatred for conservatives. These milestones created the type of hubris that led several individuals to presume they could beat an armed teen in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year with impunity. This...
 

Critical Race Theory’s Marxist Roots=And its existential danger to our political freedom and unalienable rights

The expanding influence of Critical Race Theory and its Black Live Matter “praxis,” as Marxists call applied theory, has raised concerns about its incoherent pronouncements and illiberal aims. The origins of this ideology is an important question, for CRT has nothing to do with civil rights, or improving black lives or making them “matter.” It’s about increasing its practitioners’ power in our institutions in order to “fundamentally transform” the United States from a country of ordered liberty and limited government, to a “soft” despotic, intrusively regulated technocracy at best, or an illiberal socialist tyranny at worst. CRT has its roots...

Ricochet ^ | 9 Dec 2019 | Dr Bastiat
I use a lot of dangerous drugs. Well, not me personally, but on my patients. Of course, I use dangerous drugs only when the disease I’m treating is more dangerous than the drug. In diseases that are not life-threatening, naturally I avoid dangerous drugs and try to stick with safer therapies. Chemotherapy drugs can save your life, but they can also have significant side effects. Side effects that you would not tolerate if you were treating a sinus infection. But if you have cancer, and you’re trying to avoid dying, it may make sense to take a chance on side...

Cook County judges will soon be explicitly required to set affordable bond amounts for defendants who do not pose a danger to the public. Beginning Sept. 18, judges will be prohibited from setting a higher bond than felony defendants can afford to pay. The same rule will apply to misdemeanor cases starting in January. Advocates of bond reform, including Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx, applauded the decision. "There is often no clear relationship between the posting of a cash bond and securing the safety of the community or the appearance of a defendant," Foxx said in a statement Monday....

EWTN UK ^ | February 13, 2017 | Deacon Nick Donnelly
The Tablet, the English Catholic "progressive" newspaper, has published an article by its Rome correspondent, Christopher Lamb, reporting concerns about Pope Francis becoming a "divisive" figure, and making a comparison with Pope St John XXIII, the "kind reformer": 'While Francis enjoys widespread popularity among ordinary Catholics, one Church source said he could be “alienating his core audience.” “John XXIII showed it was possible to be kind (sic) reformer,” the source explained. “There is a danger Francis is becoming divisive” ' These comments concluded Christopher Lamb's article on the pastiche of L’Osservatore Romano that was distributed in Rome last week satirically commenting...
 

Northern Hemisphere Potentially In Great Danger, Fukushima Radiation Spikes To ‘Unimaginable’ Levels

End of the American Dream ^ | 2-5-2017 | Michael Snyder
Radiation inside one of the damaged reactors at the Fukushima nuclear power facility has reached an “unimaginable” level according to experts. Because so much nuclear material from Fukushima escaped into the Pacific Ocean, there are many scientists that believe that it was the worst environmental disaster in human history, but most people in the general population seem to think that since the mainstream media really doesn’t talk about it anymore that everything must be under control. Unfortunately, that is not true at all. In fact, PBS reported just last year that “it is incorrect to say that Fukushima is under...

A follow-up on the procedural rigging created by Cardinal Baldisseri and Archbishop Forte (and the other Bergoglian strongmen) for the 2015 Synod. The Synod has officially opened today (right now, in fact, with its opening mass), and Xavier Rynne II explains in the Catholic Herald why the manipulation of this year's Synod is even worse than last year's - in fact, it is not a "synod" at all, barely a chat at tea time. More than one Synod father has described both the procedures and the final-report commission as “unacceptable.” ... Speeches (“interventions,” in Synod-speak) to the full assembly of...
