Assault Speech and Hate Weapons- Media Spin that would make Orwell proud

More Truth Leaks Out About Gun Control U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- It is dangerous to let other people do our thinking for us. We seem certain we can define “hate speech”. We’re convinced that “assault weapons” are bad.  Both terms have been manipulated by politicians and the media to mean anything they want them to mean. We were sold such a twisted-logic of lies that it would be funny.. if it were not so dangerous. Elites with armed bodyguards tell us to give up our tools of self-defense. We’re...

Criticizing NRA Executives is NOT “Attacking the NRA”

Opinion The NRA was over $30 million in the red in 2017, and had an almost $50 million deficit in its pension fund. These deficits aren't due to lack of revenue, but rather irresponsible spending.

Character Matters: George H. W. Bush

George Herbert Walker Bush was the first President I remember.  I was eight years old when he was elected and I remember he beat that guy whose tank helmet was too big for his head. George Bush was beacon of civility in a cruel profession.  What I have learned about him since his exit from office is the exact opposite of what we see in politics today.  His character was above reproach and his character mattered to him.  Here are some of the highlights: He was the son of a wealthy Senator, yet ch...

Last night I finally had a chance to read the criminal complaint against Mariia Butina (the double i is actually the correct spelling). It’s quite a document. Alexander Torshin, who has become a player of some note in U.S. politics, is her co-conspirator and clearly runs her as an agent. There are also two Americans who knowingly worked with her – U.S. Person 1 (who appears to be GOP operative Paul Erickson) and U.S. Person 2.
