House Passes Useless Gun Bill

from the Blaze:

House takes advantage of Dem majority to pass sweeping gun control bill

It doesn’t stand much chance with the Senate, or Trump

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday that would require a federal background check for all firearms purchases, including those between private citizens, according to NPR.

The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019 passed 240-190. It is referred to as “bipartisan” because it has five Republican co-sponsors, and eight Republicans voted in favor of the bill in total. read more

LOCKHEED MARTIN

Lockheed Martin has announced a fighter jet it calls the F-21. The single-seat fighter is packed with missiles, modern sensors, and can engage in both air-to-air and air-to-ground combat. It’s not exactly “new” though—the rest of the world knows this plane as the F-16 Fighting Falcon. read more

Transgenderism – the Real War on Women

from the American Thinker:

Boys Will Be Boys, Except When They Are Girls

There are two sexes, male and female, depending on whether one possesses two X chromosomes or an X and a Y chromosome.  There are rare exceptions, where someone had a third chromosome, and his sex is indeterminate.

Today, “gender,” a now longstanding feminist buzzword and stand-in for sex, has become more complicated than the tax code.  For most individuals, gender corresponds to biological sex, which gender theory proponents call “cisgender.”  A few identify as something other than their biological sex, or “transgender.”  Traditional identification as male or female is considered “binary,” while those who don’t fit neatly into the either-or choices are “non-binary.”  “Genderqueer” is another name for non-binary, referring to those who “express a combination of masculinity and femininity, or neither, in their gender expression.” read more

The fastest we’ve ever been on an electric skateboard was about 40 km/h, or 25 mph. That was a truly scary speed in our books, but the lunatics at Baja boards are preparing to nearly double it with this 8-kilowatt monster of a thing: the Pantera. read more

Is the El Chapo Act a Pipe Dream?

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Recently Texas Senator Ted Cruz reintroduced the El Chapo Act, which if passed and signed into law would result in the confiscation of, “illegally obtained profits resulting from any criminal drug trafficking enterprise led by Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Loera.’ for border security measures, which could include a wall. This includes any funds forfeited by Guzman in this case or future cases involving his former associates.”

The bill introduced by Cruz is actually called the “El Chapo” Act. It’s not only the former drug kingpin’s name, but an acronym for “Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act.

I don’t know … pretty cheesy Ted, but hey, the government does love their acronyms. They probably have a department of acronyms department whose sole job it is to craft these silly things.

Anyway, it is an interesting idea for border wall funding and it would, technically, fulfill Donald Trump’s promise to make Mexico pay for the wall, since Guzman was based in Mexico. Yeah – ok – semantics. read more

Surprising Fake Attack Video

Well, I sure wouldn’t have expected to see this video, and I really didn’t expect it to come from the source it did. Leftist Daily Show host, Trevor Noah, who was suspicious of the Jussie Smollett attack, put together a parody video of the hoax.

Very Funny.

Enjoy the video: read more

WND Exclusive – Trump Signed the Bill — and Broke his Promise

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Left and right – we are all still transfixed on the border wall.

On Friday, Feb. 15, 2019, President Trump signed the FY2019 Consolidated Appropriations Act, H.J. Res 31, to prevent the entire nation from collapsing under the weight of another shutdown.

Right. Did anyone truly feel the last one?

He then proceeded to declare a national emergency to obtain additional funding for the border wall. read more

Video Podcast – The Strange Specter of the MAGA Hat

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

I think I’ve discovered the one thing is this country that’s more divisive than president Donald Trump.

No it’s not another politician like Pelosi, Kamala Harris or even AOC. It’s not Rush Limbaugh, the Koch Brothers or even Alex Jones.

It’s not a befallen actor like Smollett. It’s none of those. It’s actually an inanimate object.

If you guessed that it’s the red “Make America Great Again” hat, you win the prize.

It seems like that red hat sends leftists over the moon and causes them to attack. It’s all the hat’s fault. read more
