  • SHOT Show: New .22 LR 45 grain Subsonic Pistol Load from Browning

    At the SHOT Show, Browning ammunition has introduced a subsonic, 45 grain, suppressor optimized .22 Long Rifle load for pistols. It uses the heavy, 45 grain bullet to increase energy from a pistol at subsonic velocities. It is loaded to reliably stay subsonic from pistols. If fired in rifle length barrels, it may reach supersonic velocities, with the resultant sonic barrier snap produced by bullets exceeding the speed of sound. A rough estimate of the price is about 10 cents a cartridge. The market for ammunition is fluid, so prices are difficult to forecast. Browning ammunition is produced by Winchester,...
  • Politico Story on Twitter Uniting Europe Devolves Into Fierce Elon Musk Attack

    On Friday, Politico published an analysis by Paris-based journalist Claire Berlinski. At first, the article is about the rapid advances in recent years in accurate translation technology which is making important changes in how we communicate as she revealed in "The Surprising Reason Europe Came Together Against Putin." But near the end, its revelations about Twitter are transformed into just another rant against Elon Musk's takeover.

    The Biden Border Rush continues, with hordes of illegal aliens being welcomed into the country. Where does it all end? We might consider looking at the sending nations for answers. If the Border Rush continues, how many people will decide to come to the U.S.A.? Nobody knows for sure, but a major international poll gives us a clue that it could be a lot of people.
  • Morning Joe: We Stand With Ilhan 'All-About-The-Benjamins' Omar!

    Morning Joe's parade of woke virtue-signaling marches on! Earlier this week, we caught Joe Scarborough apologizing for his white privilege. Speaking of the death of Tyre Nichols, Scarborough said that the police wouldn't have attacked him in similar circumstances because they'd know that "that hell would rain down from above." Scarborough conveniently ignored the fact that hell did rain down on the cops involved in the Nichols beating—all were promptly fired and charged with murder! Today, Morning Joe's virtue-signaling spotlight turned to the ouster, by a vote of Republicans, of far-left Representative Ilhan Omar from her seat on the House...

    On January 16, Monday, after coming back from the Industry Day at the Range, before the opening of the SHOT Show on Tuesday, this correspondent was outside in Las Vegas, on Tropicana Avenue, in front of Liquor World, taking a few pictures. The weather was cool, but not cold. It was overcast, without rain. A young black man drove up in a late model sporty car, parked, got out, and entered the store with an openly carried pistol stuck in his waistband. As a writer for AmmoLand, this correspondent knew he had to take action. This correspondent formulated a hasty...
  • White Privilege Virtue-Signaling Scarborough: I Wouldn't Have Been Beaten Like Tyre

    Joe Scarborough: woke, white-privilege-virtue-signaling warrior! On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough, commenting on the death of Tyre Nichols, claimed: "No police officer would have done this to me when I was 29-years-old, a middle class white guy. Nobody--they wouldn't have dared. Because they knew that if they did, if they beat the hell out of a 29-year-old, middle class white guy, that hell would rain down from above."How admirable of Joe to admit to his white privilege! But there's one little problem with Scarborough's virtue signaling. Five Memphis police officers beat a 29-year-old black man, and . . . hell promptly...
  • Don Lemon's Super Bowl Obsession: The Color of the Quarterbacks

    Take it as a sign of the progress our country has made. In thinking about the Super Bowl, it's likely that relatively few people are focused on the fact that, for the first time, it will feature two black starting quarterbacks: Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles, and Patrick Mahomes (whose mother is white) of the Kansas City Chiefs. But count CNN's Don Lemon as someone who has made the race of the QBs his Super Bowl obsession. After some chit-chat at the top of the show, here's how Lemon formally introduced today's episode: "Good morning, everyone. For the first...

    You could see this coming from 4,500 miles away—the distance from the Morning Joe set in the US to Auschwitz, in Poland. For two days now, Morning Joe has been exploiting Joe Scarborough's trip to Auschwitz for International Holocaust Remembrance Day for craven political purposes: tying Donald Trump to the horrors of the Holocaust. We predicted this in yesterday's item on Scarborough's trip. And the mudslinging was made concrete on today's show. [snip] It was Mika's turn to make the Holocaust/Trump allegation explicit: "I think John Bolton, talking about the danger that Trump poses to this country, is, is a...

    This weekend, I watched the breaking news reports from Southern California with a mixture of shock, disbelief and anger. On Saturday night, what had been a gathering to celebrate the Lunar New Year in a Los Angeles suburb became the scene of a massacre. By Sunday, President Biden had issued a statement, noting: “While there is still much we don’t know about the motive in this senseless attack, we do know that many families are grieving tonight, or praying that their loved one will recover from their wounds.” I am from Monterey Park, Calif. I am struggling to process a...
  • New York Magazine Elon Musk Hit Piece Reveals They Favor Censorship

    On Tuesday, New York magazine published a looooooong hit piece on what a horrible boss Elon Musk supposedly is at Twitter yet the biggest revelation was its admission that it favors censorship. This admission by the authors Zoë Schiffer, Casey Newton, and Alex Heath appeared in "Twitter’s staff spent years trying to protect the platform against impulsive ranting billionaires — then one made himself the CEO." Before getting around to slamming Musk, the New York authors celebrated the early free speech era of Twitter before absurdly claiming it was somehow ruined by Orange Man Bad.

    Snip: Remote government by Zoom might be the best way to break this monoculture. If all the official proceedings of the legislature were conducted virtually, this would keep the officials in the states that they represent. Not only would they be more aware of the situation in their home states (since they’d no longer spend much of the year far away), they would be more accessible to their constituents. Regular physical contact with the people who elected for them would increase the accountability of officials as they serve out their terms. This would also impede the formation of close friendships...
  • CNN: The Medal of Freedom Ate Biden's Document Homework!

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Of all the lame excuses . . . CNN This Morning came up with a laughable one today. CNN White House correspondent MJ Lee blamed Biden's "hectic, crazy" schedule during his final days as Vice President for classified documents winding up in Biden's personal possession. Among the items on Biden's "hectic, crazy" schedule making it so, so difficult to handle the classified documents in a proper manner, Lee cited:"the surprise Medal of Freedom ceremony that was given to him by the president then, President Barack Obama."Seriously? How long could that take? In contrast with Biden's predilections, Obama presumably didn't even...

    What's going on at CNN This Morning? Don't tell us there's been an outbreak of objectivity! Earlier this week, we noted the show's skepticism about the White House's claim that it was simply a "coincidence" that there were no migrants at a "migrant service location" in El Paso when Biden visited it. Today, CNN This Morning took a surprisingly jaundiced view of the Biden admin's handling of disclosures of information regarding classified docs in Biden's possession as a private citizen after leaving the vice presidency.

  • Politico Skips Katie Porter Employee Scandal in Senate Bid Stories

    If a Republican announced a run for the U.S. Senate but was recently in the news for treating their employees horribly, what would be the chance of Politico skipping any mention of that scandal in stories about their Senate bid? Perhaps somewhere between nil and none.However, with the magic "D" by the name of such a candidate, there is a very good chance Politico would go mum on the scandal; which is exactly what happened when that political periodical published consecutive stories of Congresswoman Katie Porter (D-CA) first pondering and then announcing that she would be running in 2024 for...

    Fox News viewers are degenerate drug addicts, desperate for their next fix of government-hating heroin.That was the take of ex-Republican Congressman turned MSNBC analyst David Jolly on Katie Phang's show on Saturday morning. Jolly was reacting to the news that Speaker Kevin McCarthy will reportedly organize a Frank Church-style committee to investigate abuses in recent years by the FBI and CIA. Liberals loved that in the 1970s! Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    One of the mysteries of January 6, 2021 was why National Guard troops were not called up to protect the Capitol that day. If that had happened, the story of the lightly defended Capitol on January 6 would likely have been very different.Well, Politico senior editor Michael Schaffer thinks he knows the reason: Trump's fault. Yes, that all-purpose liberal blame game excuse has come to the fore again as Schaffer puts it forward on Friday in "Trump Politicized the Military. Was That the Real Problem With the Jan. 6 Response?"

    People do not uproot themselves and leave the rhythms of home “for light and transient causes.” People are not coming to Florida just for the weather.

Such a society is one where merit rules. For the woke regime, on the other hand, a just society is one where the regime...

    At 6 a.m., on September 12, 1988, a trapper and his friend were staying at a cabin at Krosspynten, part of the Svalbard archipelago, which is under the jurisdiction of Norway. They were woken by a polar bear boar which had gained entrance to the cabin hallway (probably the air or weather lock to the cabin). The trapper had a .44 magnum revolver. Krosspynten is about a hundred and fifty miles north and eighty miles east of Longyearbyen. Mushamna is about one hundred miles north of Longyearbyen. The incident report was uncovered with a Freedom of information Act (FOIA) request...

    MSNBC's Morning Joe delighted on Tuesday in the case of Republican Congressman-elect George Santos, who's now admitted telling a series of fraudulent tales about his biography to get elected in the Third District on Long Island. If multiple lies about one's background are cause for a politician to resign, when will Democrats and the liberal media be demanding that Joe Biden quit, and how soon should we expect Ol' Joe to announce his departure from the White House? Let's take a walk down the long Memory Lane of some of Biden's lies, shall we? Among other prevarications, Biden: Made multiple...
