  • Tulsi’s troubles are a bad omen for Democrats and other commentary

    Presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a liberal who supports banning assault weapons and “raising the minimum wage to $15,” is still “too moderate for today’s Democrats,” sighs David Catron at The American Spectator. Which goes to show that the party has “no chance of beating Trump in 2020.” Unlike Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren’s radicalism, Gabbard’s liberalism is “relatively rational.” She is pro-choice but opposes late-term abortion; worries the “secretive” impeachment investigation will polarize America even further; and refuses to “execute a flip-flop on the withdrawal of troops from Syria,” as other Democrats did. Her campaign is likely to prove...

    Another month, another record number of murders in Mexico. For the first nine months of 2019, Mexico had 25,890 murders—almost six times as many murders per 100,000 people as in the U.S. Does Mexico need stricter gun control?

    They say a Rifle is only as good as its scope but my father never used a scope, did fine and still does fine after all these years. So perhaps choosing a rifle for big game in Alaska, or anywhere else, is really a just matter of choice. I don't pretend to be a rifle expert and don’t want to be. I just know that after spending 20-plus years in the Arctic and successfully hunting pretty much everything that walks the tundra up here, I know what works and has worked for me. So take my observations for what they're...

When he didn't show up for a military skills competition, his teammates began looking for him immediately, the academy said. After an initial search was unsuccessful, military police began their search around 1 a.m. Saturday. Officials notified the New...

    Afternoon folks - with all the how-to's and material posted over the last few months, I realized I never posted the core guide for all past AR-15 guides. How to Complete an AR-15 80% Lower ReceiverThis instructional and visual guide covers how to complete a typical billet or forged lower receiver for an AR-15, using an 80% lower. A drill press and router are used for drilling and cutting the fire control cavity with the jig, as opposed to a milling machine. Like most jigs designed for this project, a router isn't necessarily required. Plunge cuts can instead be made...

    Jeffrey Epstein, a powerful pedophile who got a pass from multiple justice systems, until his luck ran out, is dead. These are bits and pieces of a much bigger picture about the powerful relationships that he maintained with some very powerful people. We know that Epstein had a relationship with Bill Gates that was compelling enough to get the Microsoft kingpin to donate millions on his behalf. In October, 2014, the Media Lab received a two-million-dollar donation from Bill Gates; Ito wrote in an internal e-mail, “This is a $2M gift from Bill Gates directed by Jeffrey Epstein.” Cohen replied,...

    Following the fourth Democratic debate in Westerville, Ohio, BlazeTV's Eric Bolling questioned candidates Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) about their support for a gun confiscation policy, and asked billionaire presidential candidate Tom Steyer why he thinks the economy isn't thriving under President Donald Trump. "Congressman, can you please clarify how you will get the ARs and AKs back," Bolling asked O'Rourke. "I expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If you own and AR-15, if you own an AK-47, and it is no longer legal to own that, I expect you to turn it in," O'Rourke said....

    Anyone else sick to death of watching the Democrats debate each other already? Tuesday saw them rehash numerous conversations they’ve already had, and there are still eight excruciating nights of such television for us to endure. Beto O’Rourke, for instance, once again loudly and obnoxiously announced his intention to confiscate semiautomatic “assault weapons” from their lawful owners. He said he “believes” that compliance will be forthcoming. If I really need to engage with this nonsense, I’ll go ahead and note that the American people don’t support gun confiscation — even in polls where they endorse banning sales of new assault...

Some Internet reports claimed effective results to 15 yards, or...

    SEATTLE — When Kaleb J. Cole landed at Chicago O’Hare International Airport after a trip to Europe last year, federal officials were waiting at the gate for a chance to question him. In his luggage was the trefoil flag of a neo-Nazi hate group. On his phone, a photo of two people posing at the site of the Auschwitz death camp. The officials did not charge Mr. Cole with any crimes that day, or in the months to come, despite information that he was a leader of the Atomwaffen Division, one of the most violent extremist groups in the country....

    Watch Alisyn closely, she’s not listening to beto nor does she care what he’s saying, her only goal is to get him to say that he wants to confiscate guns so she can marginalize him away from the democratic party. CNN never challenges Pro Gun Control politicians like this, but now that BETO is saying out loud what they ultimately want to do they have to discredit him and make him seem crazy. Granted he is, but this whole, “Mass Shooters don’t follow laws bit” is something we in the gun community have been saying for years and the far...

    The left is becoming more unapologetically totalitarian every day. Every freedom-loving American should be alarmed. From hounding conservatives out of restaurants to spitting on Trump supporters at rallies, from firing employees for politically incorrect statements to fining people for "misgendering" a person, the left is on a path toward absolutism. Even some former and current leftists have recognized this intolerant trend and broken from their colleagues, lamenting their intolerance of opposing ideas and disturbing mission to suppress dissenting opinion. Just the other day, three incidents typifying the left's authoritarianism popped out at me as I was surveying the morning news....
