Podcast – Is Weed Killer Really in Cereal – And Will it Kill You

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

What’s the latest cancer scare sweeping the nation? Well, it turns out there isn’t a “latest” cancer scare.

So let me rephrase it. What is the latest Nanny-derived lawsuit scam sweeping the nation? That’s better and a hell of a lot more accurate.

Evidently someone has discovered pesticides in our cereal. This time it is Honey Nut Cheerios. The pesticide is Glyphosate, the active ingredient in what else … Round-up weed killer. And if you’ve seen the “reports” you’ll know, without a shadow of a doubt, that Round-Up does cause cancer in 100% of humans it comes in contact with.

Now most of what I just said is untrue and/or greatly exaggerated.

Allow me to explain the facts about this latest “cancer-causing” agent. read more

When someone is missing bone in their face due to injury or illness, the current treatment involves transplanting a piece of bone extracted from the leg, leaving a deficit there. Now, however, scientists have succeeded in growing extra bone within sheep’s bodies, that’s preformed to the shape required. read more

Supreme Court Rules: “Peace Cross” Stays Put

from HotAir:

7-2: SCOTUS Rules “Peace Cross” Can Remain On Public Land

If you need quickie background on this dispute, I’ve got you covered. I wrote about oral arguments in this case in February, noting how surprisingly skeptical even Breyer and Kagan sounded about the position of the cross’s opponents.

Now here we are four months later and Breyer and Kagan have sided with the Court’s conservatives in leaving the cross in place. Whaddaya know — sometimes you can read the tea leaves in oral arguments. read more

Free Healthcare for Illegals – Not for Citizens

And of course we know it’s not free. Nothing is free. Oh, it’ll be free for illegals. But someone will have to pay for it. I wonder who that will be? And I wonder if “legal” immigrants will be granted the same benefit? I doubt it.

from Liberty Nation:

CA Voters Not Happy With Free Medical For Illegals

As the California state legislature and Gov. Gavin Newsom dislocate their shoulders in the hearty backslapping of their self-congratulatory moment in American history, the rest of the nation is snarling and spitting over the lunacy of the left coast Democrats.  That is, according to the new Rasmussen Reports poll, which asked if illegal immigrants should receive free health care.

The answer was a resounding no.  No way, no how, nuh-uh, nada. read more

Of Regulations and Federal Land

from Breitbart:

Trump’s Department of Interior Axing 7,500 Regs to Give Americans Access to Federal Land

Trump’s Cabinet is putting his America First policies into place, including at the Department of Interior, where Secretary David Bernhardt announced a plan to open up more than 1.4 million acres of federal land through the elimination of some 7,500 regulations.

The land, under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, includes 74 national wildlife refuges and 15 national fish hatcheries.

Bernhardt said: read more

Weekly Weapons Advice – Choosing a Pistol Caliber

from my friends at GunPros.com:

Pistol Calibers – Comparison of the Most Common Options

Ammunition

If you’re looking to buy a handgun, the first step is determining what caliber you want to purchase. In this guide we’ll be covering a variety of common pistol calibers to help you make your decision.

What Does Caliber Mean?Parts of a Centerfire Cartridge & Bullet

Caliber refers to the internal diameter of a gun’s barrel and consequently the diameter of the bullets that can be used by the gun. Bullet calibers can be a bit confusing, because some bullet diameters are measured in inches, while others are measured in millimeters. It’s also important to understand that the bullet only refers to the actual projectile (see diagram to right).

If you look at the picture below, a .22 LR (.22 Long Rifle) is .223 inches in diameter, while the 9mm Luger round is 9 millimeters in diameter. If you knew nothing about guns or ammo, you might have assumed ammo referred to as “22 LR” would be bigger than one called “9 millimeter”, but you can clearly see in the picture (from grandpappy.org) this is not the case. This is due to the difference in their units of measurement.

Pistol Calibers

Important Note for Beginners: Always read the owner’s manual for all firearms you own, and only use the recommend ammunition. Just because a cartridge fits into your magazine, does not mean it can or should be shot by your firearm.

Why it’s Important to Put Thought Into Your Handgun Caliber

The handgun caliber you choose will typically impact:

  • The cost of ammunition. As a general rule, the larger the bullet, the more expensive it is. However, other factors like how common the ammo is, its supply, and its demand will also affect its price. Below you can see a current estimation of the cost of ammo online by caliber. Keep in mind prices will vary over time.

Learn how you can save big on ammunition by buying ammo online.

Ammo Caliber Estimated Price Per Round
.22 LR (.22 Long Rifle) $0.05-$0.07
.32 ACP (.32 Auto) $0.38-$0.52
.380 ACP (.380 Auto) $0.29-$0.43
9mm (9mm Luger) $0.19-$0.24
.40 S&W $0.29-$0.38
.45 ACP (.45 Auto) $0.28-$0.34
.38 Special $0.32-$0.40
.357 Magnum (.357 MAG) $0.42-$0.68
.44 Magnum (.44 Mag) $0.54-$1.05
  • The Stopping Power of Your Gun & Ammo While a variety of factors come into play when determining the stopping power of a gun and its ammo, the larger a bullet, the more likely it is to incapacitate an attacker.
  • The Recoil When Firing Your Gun. Though other factors play into recoil, a larger round typically equates to more recoil. Recoil strength affects accuracy because bullets that produce strong recoil will naturally move your aim further away from your target with each shot. Consequently, bullets with more recoil also require you to brace more in order to maintain accuracy.

Mr. President – No More Interviews with Leftists

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

President Trump did himself a real disservice by agreeing to the Oval Office interview with democrat hack and former Clinton hitman, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. It was never going to be a fair interview, but like many other things, I’m sure Trump figured he “had this.”

But what Trump clearly didn’t have was a governor on his cool – especially his expression.

Anyone who has followed politics can tell you that it is all and only about optics. Everyone knows this. Sure, particularly those of us on the right, insist that substance should be king. And indeed it should. This country would be a lot better off if this were the case, but it isn’t, and ever since the first televised presidential debate, it’s unfortunately been this way.

How someone looks on camera is sadly much more important than what he or she says. It’s why someone like Abraham Lincoln could not be elected today. Think about that. To many, Lincoln is one of the most significant figures in American history, but because he lacked, shall we say, physical attractiveness, he would have no shot. read more
