    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...

  • Never-Trumpers Exit Stage Left

    The dramatic exit last Friday by Rep. John Katko (R-NY), who announced he would not run for reelection, may have shocked liberals but was no surprise to Trump supporters. One by one, the Republicans who voted for the second impeachment or who publicly blamed Trump for the Jan. 6th rally at the Capitol are leaving public office. Katko was the third to prematurely retire among the impeachers, and the most significant due to his seniority and otherwise bright future. He was in line to become chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee after the predicted takeover of the House by...

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham sent GOP Leader Mitch McConnell a very clear message Wednesday night: Get on board with Donald Trump or get out. Asked by Fox's Sean Hannity about the "swampiness" of the Kentucky senator, Graham answered this way: "Elections are about the future. If you want to be a Republican leader in the House or the Senate, you have to have a working relationship with Donald Trump. Can Senator McConnell effectively work with the leader of the Republican party, Donald Trump? He is the most consequential Republican since Ronald Reagan. It's his nomination if he wants it....

    Wednesday on FNC’s “Hannity,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) raised the possibility of not supporting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) given a perception McConnell and former President Donald Trump don’t have a good relationship. Graham encouraged McConnell to have that relationship and make the case for Trump-era policies. Otherwise, the South Carolina Republican said McConnell would “fail.”

    Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.) told Politico on Wednesday he wishes he had certified the electoral votes of several states that voted for President Biden in the 2020 presidential election. “In retrospect I should have voted to certify,” Rice reportedly said. “Because President Trump was responsible for the attack on the Capitol." The South Carolina Republican alleged that Trump “did nothing to stop” the attack on Jan. 6 and looked on at the unfolding events “with pride,” and from afar, Politico reported. Rice told the news outlet that he only voted against certifying the electoral votes of several states because he...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Yet more earthquakes have struck near South Carolina's capital city, the ninth and tenth in a series of rumblings that have caused geologists to wonder how long the convulsions might last, or if they could possibly portend future, more serious seismic activity. Early Wednesday, a 2.6-magnitude earthquake struck near Elgin, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Columbia, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was measured at a depth of 0.5 kilometers, officials said. About 7 hours later, another earthquake hit the area, this one with a magnitude of 1.5, according to officials. That area, a...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham warned that Americans are living in the “most dangerous times since the late ’30s” because of the “radical” legislative agenda of President Biden and his Democratic colleagues. Graham (R-SC) predicted in an interview with John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM that voters in the 2022 midterm elections will be motivated “not based on what happened on Jan. 6, but based on this failed Democratic radical agenda.”

    A bill making its way through the South Carolina legislature may have a tremendous impact on the state’s public higher education system. And if successful, it may prove as a model for other states looking to get a handle on their hard-to-control higher education systems. House Bill 4522—the “Cancelling Professor Tenure Act”—will end tenure for newly hired professors at South Carolina’s ten public institutions of higher education, including such well-known schools as the University of South Carolina, Clemson, and The Citadel. Faculty who have already been granted tenure or who have already been hired with the expectation of receiving tenure...

    By now, you’ve become familiar with automatic mail ballots. You also probably are familiar with election officials suspending the statutory rules governing elections in 2020 as they did in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and elsewhere. If you really get around, then you’ve come across Zuckbucks, the nearly half-billion dollars that came from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and went into government election offices in urban cores to create turnout machines for Joe Biden. But you might not have met ERIC. ERIC isn’t a person. ERIC stands for the Electronic Registration and Information Center. ERIC is an entity that has more to do with...

    Fifteen state financial officers sent a letter to U.S. banks last week noting $600 billion in assets they pledge to take elsewhere if the financial institutions embrace corporate wokeism and prohibit financing to the fossil fuel industry. Led by West Virginia Republican Treasurer Riley Moore, the group promised “collective action” in the form of an “economic boycott.” “Just as each state represented in this letter is unique in its governing laws and economy, our actions will take different forms,” they wrote in the letter obtained by The Federalist. “However, the overarching objective of our actions will be the same –...

    President Joe Biden referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President Harris” during a speech at South Carolina State University on Friday. The president spoke about the importance of Historic Black Colleges and Universities, noting that Harris was a graduate of Howard University. “Of course, President Harris is a proud Howard alum,” Biden said, without correcting himself. Biden spoke at South Carolina State University’s 2021 Commencement Ceremony to recognize Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), crediting him for saving his presidential campaign. The president spent a part of his speech accusing the United States of ongoing systemic racism against black people, including...

When the volunteer attempted to prevent the theft, Washington shoved her to the ground and fled with money taken from the kettle. Police say an alert citizen driving by the incident followed Washington as she fled into the nearby Walmart where she was subsequently located by...
