During the annual melee of CES 2018, the world seemed to have largely overlooked one of the largest, most tech-packed debuts of the show. Lifestyle technology company Furrion revealed an all-out glamping tractor-trailer packed with everything from a restaurant-level kitchen to a complete smarthome-like entertainment system. A combination of a fifth wheel trailer and a sleeper semi cab, the new concept joined Furrion’s 2017 Elysium, an A-list Type A motorhome concept with built-in helipad and hot tub on its roof. Furrion has taken the concept of the ultra-luxurious “land yacht” glamper to new heights.
NBC’s Chuck Todd Promotes Abolishing the Second Amendment
In an appearance on NBC’s Sunday Today early that morning, moderator Chuck Todd lambasted Republicans for being the reason gun control efforts were making no progress since they were in control of the House, Senate, and the Presidency. Todd ratcheted up his anti-gun stance during Meet the Press by promoting radical calls to abolish the right to bears by repealing the Second Amendment. And he did it by highlighting the writings of Bret Stephens, a never-Trumper turned liberal.
“Isn’t the difficulty here legislatively, the constitution,” Todd lamented to his largely liberal panel. “Which is Bret Stephens’ point in The New York Times, he’s calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment.” He then emphatically read from the liberal’s talking points:

New York democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand describes her own constituents – the ones who elected her to the Senate – as racist and wrong regarding gun control and illegal immigration. Funny thing though – she used to have views on both, maybe even to right of President Trump. Now she is the puppet of her master, Chuck Schumer
ICE did an immigration sweep of Los Angeles and netted 100 illegals. Only 100? Hey – gotta start somewhere. California politicians are not happy as their cities and now entire State is an illegal alien sanctuary.
Ted Cruz entered the Lion’s den when he visited what turned out to be a hostile environment on Fox & Friends. The hosts were not happy when he described Trump’s position as being to the left of democrats. Cruz schooled them, but things did go well.

Ky. schools cover-up denying Bible club access exposed
Good News ClubsA Christian legal group issued the Boone County School District (BCSD) an official warning last week that it is discriminating against an evangelical Bible organization by refusing it equal access to school facilities for a K–5 after-school Bible club.
Attorneys with Liberty Counsel sent school officials a demand letter arguing that the district’s facilities use policy is consistent with equal access laws, and therefore cannot be used to keep Child Evangelism Fellowship’s (CEF) after-school Good News Clubs from meeting on the campuses of Stevens Elementary School and Goodridge Elementary School.

4 Complaints About Gun Owners Debunked
When tragedy strikes it is understandable that people get emotional. But they often forget that the media knows how to pull the heartstrings for nefarious reasons. If a media campaign looks coordinated, it probably is. We should never let the emotions they trigger override our logic, and threaten our safety.
And we shouldn’t let whole groups be punished for the crimes of individuals. Nothing that one person does can justify assaulting or stealing from an entirely different individual. That type of thinking is what leads to violence and prejudice against whole races, religions, and nationalities.
Here are four common knee-jerk reactions gun owners get, and the data to respond.

No, I’m not talking about the Democrat Party. I think it’s too late for that bunch. I’m of course referring to our federal intelligence services which have become highly politicized, appear to only be interested in protecting the aforementioned democrats, and it seems have become less competent since they’ve become politicized.
The Sandy Hook massacre not withstanding, three of the latest most high profile mass-shootings/bombings have the FBI’s bungling fingerprints all over them.
The Sandy Hook, Adam Lanza, school shooting was bungled by local authorities. They were warned of Lanza’s behavior and threats, and failed to pass it off to the FBI, or similar authority. Locals are not equipped or adept at investigating potential situations prior to them happening.
However, there appears to be a pattern forming in the FBI’s ability or want to follow leads prior to the tragedies occurring.
The FBI failed to keep track of the Boston bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, after they suspected he had become radicalized. The FBI interviewed him in 2011 as a person with terrorist ties, thanks to a tip from Russian intelligence, but never followed up, even after he had several times visited a known radical Islamic Mosque in Dagestan. Dagestan is known to have Islamist training camps.
A stunning medical breakthrough has seen human kidney tissue capable of producing urine grown in the lab, in a world first.
Experts used stem cells to create mini-kidneys that were implanted into mice, with tests revealing they were able to filter and excrete waste.
The research will allow medical researchers to model kidney diseases using the new structures, advancing our understanding of a number of conditions.
It is also a key step in creating working kidneys for transplant, grown from a patient’s own tissue, a more realistic possibility in the future.
Report: 52 Percent of Non-Disabled Parents on Food Stamps Do Not Work
The debate surrounding food stamp recipients focuses on able-bodied adults without children, and a report released Thursday found that more than half of parents without disabilities who receive food stamps do not work.
