    Semi-automatic pistols dominate the handgun market in the United States. There are ten major manufacturers of revolvers in the United States who made more than ten thousand revolvers each in 2021. 2021 is the latest year on record where the ATF has published the numbers of pistols made by United States manufacturers. There were only five major manufacturers of .22 caliber or smaller revolvers in 2021. There were 40 manufacturers in the USA who made over 10,000 pistols (handguns, not revolvers) in 2021. There were 16 who made over 10,000 .22 caliber or smaller pistols in 2021. This article will...
  • Elon Musk might be right. Chinese EV firms could ‘demolish’ their US rivals.

    A decade ago, Elon Musk laughed off the threat posed by Chinese electric carmaker BYD. He's not laughing now. The Tesla CEO warned investors in a recent earnings call that Chinese EV firms will "demolish" their Western rivals if trade barriers aren't put in place to limit their expansion, after BYD finally overtook Tesla as the world's top seller of electric cars. "The Chinese car companies are the most competitive car companies in the world," Musk told investors during Tesla's Q4 earnings call. "If there are no trade barriers established, they will pretty much demolish most other car companies in...

    We require leaders with the will to admit it. A secure future for America is tied to winning two related shooting wars, one in Ukraine and the other in Israel. Victory will weaken the Russia-Iran-China axis that is at war with the United States. The will and a strategy to win are crucial and will require strong U.S. leadership, particularly from the president of the United States. In our war with the Russia-Iran-China axis (North Korea is the junior partner), American troops are not engaged directly at this time, but those of our Ukrainian and Israeli allies experience death and...

    There was a time when the United States government supported Israel unconditionally; when the executive and legislative branches were united in their support of Israel, the only democracy in the region; and when our leaders unflinchingly called out the PLO, Hamas, Hezbollah, etc. for what they are: terrorists committed to the destruction of Israel. But sadly, those days are gone. The United States now has abandoned Israel and her safety. While this has been a discussion for months (and some believe years), recent actions demonstrate it all too clearly. Let's start first with Congress. We are all aware of how...

    WILMERDING, Pennsylvania — By July of this year, the last man on the job here at the Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies Corporation will, in all likelihood, turn around as he reaches the threshold of the same front door hundreds of thousands of workers have passed through since the 1890s. For the last time, he will look out over the 300,000-square-foot plant that has provided this country with so much technology and innovation for nearly 140 years, and he will think about the men and women who went before, and then turn out the lights for the last time. This is...
  • US scientists held secret talks with Covid 'Batwoman' amid drive to make coronaviruses more deadly... just before pandemic

    The Chinese scientist who ran controversial experiments at the laboratory suspected of triggering Covid held a secret meeting with the US government to seek backing for a project that would go on to supercharge coronaviruses – shortly before the devastating outbreak started in her native Wuhan. The June 2017 meeting at America's National Institutes of Health (NIH) held by Shi Zhengli – known as 'Batwoman' because of her work on sampling and sequencing the animals' viruses – will bolster fears of Western collusion in a Chinese cover-up after Covid resulted from a reckless laboratory experiment. A new cache of documents,...

    OPINION The USA, Canada, Australia, Norway and the UK which had the moral responsibility to rapidly phase out oil and gas production are responsible for planned expansion from new oil and gas fields for next decade and half. How can these countries advise India to cut on coal consumption? Our greenhouse gas emission is nearly 3 Giga tonnes of CO2 equivalent annually. We are distant third behind the two top emitters China with 14 Giga tonnes and the US with 8 Giga tonnes Among the important outcomes, COP 28 text proposes to triple renewable energy capacity and double the global...

    America is a special place because it is home to exceptional people. The 2/5 infantry battalion (2d Battalion, 5th Regiment) — the most highly decorated battalion in the U.S. Marine Corps — has a motto: Retreat, Hell! Its members embrace this credo in honor of Major Lloyd W. Williams, who, as company commander of the 51st at the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War I, refused to withdraw at the urging of a French colonel and countered, “Retreat, hell! We just got here!” Williams later led an assault that routed the Germans at the cost of most of his...

    This week at work a team member was talking about how her 23 year old son who is done with college is itching to move to Germany because he is tired of the USA and what is going on here. Two other co-workers chimed in saying how everything is wonderful in Germany and that so much is "free" and one the lady has a friend who moved to Germany from the USA and she loves it because of once again all the "free" they get. I wanted to explode and tell them nowhere is like the USA and that they...

    Faculty at a Massachusetts high school have canceled "USA Day" from its spirit week activities this year because they wanted to "avoid politics," local outlets reported this week. In a letter to the school community, Wellesley High School principal Jamie Chisum explained that school staff canceled the patriotic-themed day to avoid a topic that had become "politicized." "USA Day" was slated to be held on the last day of the high school’s festive week, allowing kids to dress up in their patriotic gear and celebrate America. The theme was replaced by "Fitness Friday," though students were still invited to wear...

    I have a 50 gallon reserve fuel tank that I fill up when i find slightly cheaper gas on occasion and I've noticed that different places cut me off for different reasons. One place cut me off at 35 gallons. Another place, 25 Gallons. Today I was cut off at $99. I dont understand why the inconsistency. BTW, I am located in the Huntsville, Alabama area. 87 octane was $2.79 today.

We’re not a first world country anymore, I told him. Hopefully our decline stops somewhere around second world, I half-joked. That’s probably the best we can hope for.Earlier that evening over dinner at what was once our regular spot, he told me of...

    In a recent statement, the Houthi spokesperson, Yahya Sarea, announced that the Yemeni Armed Forces successfully shot down an American MQ9 aircraft engaged in hostile, monitoring, and spying activities within Yemeni territorial waters. This incident occurred within the context of American military support for the Israeli entity. The Yemeni Armed Forces, with the help of appropriate weapons, asserted their legitimate right to defend the country and confront all hostile threats. This development further underscores their commitment to carrying out military operations against the Israeli entity in solidarity with the Palestinian people's cause.

    President Joe Biden and his top advisers are warning Israel with growing force that it will become increasingly difficult for it to pursue its military goals in Gaza as global outcry intensifies about the scale of humanitarian suffering there. Biden, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken – who departed Thursday for Israel with a message on protecting civilian lives – have all explicitly pressed the case in recent private conversations with the Israelis, telling them that eroding support will have dire strategic consequences for Israel Defense Forces operations against Hamas. Behind the scenes, American officials also...

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi officials have firmly warned the United States in recent days that an Israeli ground incursion into the Gaza Strip could be catastrophic for the Middle East.Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., a member of the Armed Services Committee, was one of 10 senators who met last weekend with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom’s de facto ruler, in Riyadh, the Saudi capital.“The Saudi leadership was hopeful that a ground operation could be avoided for reasons of stability as well as the loss of life,” Blumenthal told The New York Times on Thursday.

    When I was growing up and attending Catholic schools, I was taught that the pope is infallible. But then I read Pope Francis’ updated encyclical letter last week, and now I can only conclude that at least this pope is fallible. In fact, the declaration is so filled with anti-Christian fallacies that one has to wonder whether we have a pope that is actually Catholic. Pope Francis was full of doom and gloom as he warned that the Earth is “collapsing and may be nearing the breaking point” because of climate change. He takes a metaphorical ruler and whacks the...

    You only practice for something if you think that there is a decent chance that it will actually happen. This week, two “tests” will be conducted that sound rather ominous. The first of these “tests” will happen in Russia on Tuesday. Vladimir Putin has ordered the very first “nationwide nuclear attack exercise” in the entire history of his country, and that is making headlines all over the globe… Russia will stage its first nationwide nuclear attack exercise across 11 time zones in preparation for potential nuclear war. It is scheduled to take place on October 3 and will see Vladimir...

    ONCE AGAIN, the rioters are looting and pillaging Ferguson, Missouri. Ferguson However, we don’t believe the protests and riots that ensued were ever about Michael Brown. The entire movement represents a threat to our Republic. Yes, you read that correctly… Those supporting, funding, supplying and organizing the recent race riots are a clear and present danger to the Republic of the United States. If you were watching the news broadcasts about the protests in New York City, you undoubtedly saw many people carrying signs reflecting their beliefs. But wait. The people holding those signs don’t look even barely capable of...
