Politics

Modern political organizations are run by children. I’m sure of it. The outgoing California Democratic Party Chairman was John Burton. At the CADEM17 Convention, Burton called the deaf interpreters up on stage with him and thanked them. Immediately, Burton flipped his middle finger in the air and yelled “F*** Donald Trump”. What was more disturbing was all the people who readily joined in with him.

A slow motion Coup D’etat is unfolding in Washington D.C. Since Donald Trump won the election, the bureaucratic system has worked to undermine his validity. This article details some of the mechanisms that have been used and is … Continue reading

Israel

Jerusalem Day is a national holiday in Israel that celebrates the country’s reunification of Jerusalem following the Six Day War of 1967. This year, it is celebrated on Tuesday May 23, and President Trump will be in the city for it. One of President Trump’s campaign promises was that he would move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. All other U.S. Embassies are in each nation’s capitals, and this needs to happen. Reader D.S. sent this link in along with the scripture: “For David said, The LORD God of Israel hath given rest unto his people, that they may dwell in Jerusalem for ever.” 1 Chronicles 23:25

Government

In typical bureaucratic fashion, the U.S. government agencies have a miserable track record on security. According to BetaNews, 34 percent of US government agencies have had data breaches in the last year. Sixty-five percent of them have had a data breach sometime in the past. These are the same agencies that hold all of your sensitive and private data. Sent in by G.G.

Second Amendment

Wondering what could possibly be wrong with universal background checks? Reader DSV sent in this article from The Truth About Guns telling us exactly what is wrong with it.

Politics and Your Neighborhood Crime

Reader H.L. sent in this link from American Thinker on how Oregon is emptying jails to terrorize citizens into paying higher taxes. It’s truly amazing how much the government has in common with organized crime. Isn’t this concept similar to the “protection payment” extorted from shop owners?

Electronic Security

An “accidental hero” noticed that the ransomware hack on Friday was making DNS calls to a nonsensical domain. When he registered the domain name, suddenly the ransomware was stopped cold in its tracks. Apparently, the author of the hack had a built in kill-switch, which checked for the existence of that domain. The researcher has stated that the original author is still unknown, and it would be trivial to rewrite the code to start up again. The current hack may be over, but the battle is still on. It should also be noted that this only stopped the spread of the code. If you’ve already been hacked, it’s too late for you.

Venezuela Crisis

Baby deaths soar in Venezuela crisis – This is what always happens when Socialism rules a nation! It may take longer or shorter, but HISTORY tells the truth! America is becoming a socialist nation, though still a very wealthy one. It will just take longer unless we change course, which to MY mind does NOT appear to be happening. This is primarily because Americans are no longer educated in the proper function of government. We do not know what our Founding Fathers knew, so if one wants to really know and understand economics and a free government one needs to be self taught. The books are out there! A good start is the reading of the … Continue reading

Wow! Mrs. Latimer informed me of this jewel. A self-proclaimed far left liberal writes about the accuracy of conservative social predictions and the refusal of college campus professors to even discuss their offenses to block conservative voices and debate. While he disagrees with conservatives about what is good and bad, he admits we have some things correct.The professor is concerned about the lack of discussion. The conservative voice is being shut out and no one is allowed to discuss it. Furthermore, he states that it would be difficult to be a conservative professor on today’s campuses, particularly in humanities and social sciences. What does that tell us about sending our young people off to college?

Excerpts:

“Social cons said … Continue reading

President Donald Trump’s full remarks at NRA-ILA Leadership Forum in Atlanta. While his speech was not specific on particular gun law policies, it was encouraging. He previously mentioned that he is in favor of the Hearing Protection Act.

Tactical Training

For Bragg released a video of a team engaged in an active shooter drill. The video underscores the importance of training. As the writer points out, the reason we train is so foolish (and costly) accidents don’t happen. I like his saying: “Remember, amateurs train until they get it right, professionals train until they don’t remember how to do it wrong.” (Warning: The second video is graphic.)

The left has lost its mind

The left continues their absurd, whining diatribes as they continue to refuse to take responsibility for their own actions. Fox news interviews Dakota Meyer on New York Magazine’s claim that the NRA benefits ISIS. This claim is the epitome of foolishness… Continue reading

Jobs (or is that Immigration)

Two GOP RINOs are getting ready to introduce legislation to allow the states to legally import 500,000 blue-collar workers and white-collar professionals to replace lost American workers. They blame depressed workers turning to drugs (through Medicaid) but rather than fix the problem, the’ll just import cheap labor and keep doing the same old things. Thanks to M.G. for the link… Continue reading

Social Unrest

Many of our readers took notice when we posted the link to Arizona’s John Brown Gun Club. The irony was in the “fake” rifles that many carried as an open-carry protest. Today, SurvivalBlog reader B.B. updated us on their progress. Apparently, they were offended at being caught carrying toys under the guise of open-carry, so this time they posted a video of their range practice. I know they are trying to show how mean and tough they are, but it’s hard not to laugh. They really seem to want to pick a fight though… Continue reading

The Terrible Damage Created by the Left’s War on Women. Excerpt: “Now, even worse is the Liberals’ War on Women. No fault divorce and women’s rights plus Democrat financial policies in government have forced wives and mothers into the marketplace and their children into daycare warrens.

Women now epitomize just what our culture does not need, namely binary entities that won’t nurture, can’t love and who are caricatures of authentic women.” – D.S.
