    Hi-Power, meet the High Power.The Hi-Power — known as the Browning Hi-Power, the Browning Automatic Pistol, the Grande Puissance, P-35, Pistole 640(b), and so many other names — is arguably the most widely-used military handgun of all time. Present in historic conflicts from both sides of the toughest battles of World War II to the Iranian embassy siege in London that made the British Special Air Service a household name, this single-action semi-automatic pistol was unbelievably innovative for its time, boasting a number of features that made it truly higher power than other options of the day.Now, 87 years after...

    Let's say I claim the right to collect tolls on the Brooklyn Bridge. (I need cash, you know, and there’s money there). So, I fly to New York; I erect tollgates, and I start collecting tolls from cars and trucks crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. Now, as you might imagine, I have no right to do this. I just did it, and dared people to stop me. Well, people did. They didn’t waste much time, either. Let’s assume that people sued me, and it went all the way to the Supreme Court, where SCOTUS said "This is ridiculous! John, you don't...

    On this episode of The Resistance Library, Sam and David discuss the Battle of the Bulge. When we think about American GIs in the European theater of World War II, much of our image comes from the Battle of the Bulge. Named so because of the distinctive "bulge" shape of the front lines, this is where so many American men laid down their lives on fields of frozen mud in France.

    The US Navy said it was expanding it's eight-week boot camp program to include two more weeks of classes focusing on suicide prevention, sexual assault, hazing and racism. The change, the first major overhaul in nearly 20 years, comes as the Navy grapples with major shipboard issues over the years that include failures to address sexual assaults, fires and deadly collisions and the rise of extremism within the ranks.

    Leaked details of UK government’s early pandemic response back up Dr. Malone’s assertions. Dr. Robert Malone’s assertions about “mass formation psychosis” in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic are underscored by the fact that authorities in the UK admitted to using “totalitarian” methods of “mind control” to instill fear in the population. In Canada, the military also admitted launching a psychological operations campaign against their own people in order to manipulate them into compliance with COVID-19 restrictions and mandates. During his viral podcast with Joe Rogan after he was banned by Twitter, Malone explained how the global population was being...

    The honor and dignity of Japanese culture carefully hides dubious aspects of their WW2 military operations. Why would a culture place such a high priority of respect onto legacies of kamikaze pilots, suicide submarine missiles, and underwater suicide mine bombers? In short, families of these soldiers knew the personal realities behind the warrior myths.

    The Battle at Wounded Knee is a significant battle in American history, as it put an end to the Indian Wars and is marked as the last official defeat of the Native Americans. But what’s not taught in history lessons is that Wounded Knee was one of the first federally backed gun confiscations in the history of the United States, and it ended in the massacre of nearly 300 unarmed people. During the late 19th century, American Indians were allowed to purchase and carry firearms, just as white men were. The colonial gun laws did not bar Native Americans from...

The only real threat that bothers them is having to pay the price for their terror themselves. The warnings were reportedly sent to the Gaza-based terror group by Egyptian security officials who are now visiting the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah. Israel has threatened Hamas with targeted killings...
