The ancient art of origami has been inspiring engineers and designers for decades. The principles behind this Japanese folding technique have been appropriated by everyone from solar array designers for implementation in space to medical engineers creating ingestible robotics. Now a team at Brigham Young University (BYU) has created a lightweight bulletproof shield inspired by a Yoshimura origami crease pattern. read more

Podcast – Deportation Sob Stories – Scary Firearms are Banned – Take Down that American Flag

Every week, the left will trot out poor illegal aliens who face deportation by that big meanie Trump. Last week was no different. The radical illegal immigrant advocates regale us with sob stories of how unfair the President is. I touch on a few of the latest tearjerkers.

The U.S. Fourth Circuit is making their own unconstitutional law, by stating that scary “exceptionally lethal weapons of war” are not protected by the Second Amendment – as opposed to weapons which are not lethal – I guess.

Former Black Panther Destroys John Lewis

Former member of the radical`60’s era Black Panthers, Mason Weaver, went on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show last night to discuss civil rights icon John Lewis and Lewis’s feud with Donald Trump.

In a rather stunning exposé, Weaver completely dismantles Lewis’s argument that Trump is somehow illegitimate. Rather, Weaver insists that it is Lewis and the other phony social justice warriors who are illegitimate and are the ones to blame for all the problems of the black community.

Rule Number One – Never Rob a Gun Store!

Chalk this one up as a special kind of stupid!  Is this what Darwin meant?

from the Daily Mail:

Scroll Down For Video

An armed robber was killed on camera as he tried to hold up a gun store by its 64-year-old owner.

Surveillance footage at Dixie Gun and Pawn in Mableton, Georgia, showed the moment the would-be criminal and an accomplice stormed into the store dressed in ski masks.

They aimed their guns towards an employee who held his hands up in a plea for mercy before store owner Jimmy Groover opened fire.

The 64-year-old grandfather reached for his own gun and shot one of the robbers dead while the other ran for his life.

The robbers entered the store shortly before 11am on December 26, pointing their weapons at Groover and another member of staff. Above, Groover tends to business behind the counter unaware that the robbers have entered

Its Drugs, Not Guns, That are Killing Our People

On the anniversary of a beloved family member who has passed, whether recently or decades prior, many relatives may get together to remember the life of the individual. It may even be a tradition. In loving memory, they may share stories of his or her life. Family members may even establish a foundation for people to donate to in his or her honor. That’s the way to do it right.

The way to do it wrong was recently demonstrated by the wacky widow, Yoko Ono, wife of the late John Lennon. I was going to add, member of The Beatles, but if you don’t know that, you really need to examine your life as a whole.

Yoko took the occasion of the 36th anniversary of John’s untimely death with a call for Gun Control in America. What have we conservatives always said about liberals? Yes – that everything boils down to politics. They must make everything – good, bad or indifferent, into a political statement.

Yoko tweeted that, “We are turning this beautiful country into a war zone.” Who is this we? Do you have a mouse in your pocket – or perhaps a scary AR-15 “assault rifle? We aren’t turning America into anything. Drug dealers, gang-bangers and cop killers have turned our cities into war zones. You know – the cities entirely controlled by leftists like Yoko. read more

Gun Grabbers are just trying to make Maine a Safer Place

On November 4th, the Fiscal Times posted an article filled with hope for gun-grabbers. They began by first bemoaning that the federal legislature, controlled by those waskily Wepublicans, has dropped the ball on gun control. Naturally the reason is because all republicans are beholden to the NRA and the gun lobby – not due to the second most important Amendment in the U.S. Constitution. No – that can’t be it.

But the silver lining according to the Times, is that some States have the opportunity on election day to usurp the feds, and more importantly the Constitution, and pass their own gun restrictions, despite the fact that the Second Amendment holds preeminence over all state gun laws. When has this ever mattered to democrats?

The article states that four such States have their chance to act unconstitutionally. These are California, Maine, Nevada and Washington state. Of course this article wouldn’t state such a thing – I’m just pointing out what the true intent of their ballot initiatives are.

As Maine is right next door, I decided I would concentrate on it. Lucky for me, one of the anti-gun nuts the Times quotes is from Maine. read more

The Charlotte Shooting Looks to be Cut and Dried – the Cops Were Right Again

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The saga of the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina continues as the dashcam and bodycam footage is released to the public – although to me, it’s not much of a saga.

A brief synopsis of the lead up to the shooting is that the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were dispatched on another call in the immediate area when they noticed a man seated in an SUV with a pistol is in hand. For a more complete accounting, you may link to my article from a few days ago here.

However, according to his mother, Scott was not brandishing a weapon, but was reading the Koran. No Koran or any other book was found at the scene.

While one officer is clearly seen behind a pick up truck with his weapon drawn on the SUV, another pulls up with his dashcam rolling. He joins the officer behind the pick up. Although we can’t see Scott in the SUV, we can clearly hear one of the officers yelling at the person in the car to “Drop the Gun!” He did not say, drop the book or drop the Koran. read more

In naval circles, littoral areas are the hotspots for future conflict, but sending ships close to shore is like steaming into a shooting gallery. To provide more protection, the US Navy recently conducted tests off the coast of California of Raytheon’s SeaRAM defensive missile system, which fires supersonic, self-guided interceptors against in-coming close-range threats. read more

Podcast – 4.9 Percent Unemployment and No Jobs – A Look into the Future of Obamacare – Gun Rights Activist gets Sued in Texas

The Government is touting 4.9% unemployment and the Federal Reserve thinks this is great. So great in fact that they are going to start raising interest rates. But this figure is – surprise, surprise – a lie. Let’s take a look at what it really is.

Want to see what our fabulous healthcare system, Obamacare, will look like soon? Just take a look at the British socialized, single payer system and the latest reports of rationing. This is what we have to look forward to.

A County in the state of Texas is not happy with a gun rights advocate who has written to them complaining about not being to carry his weapon in the county courthouse complex. They’ve evidently decided to make an example of him.

‘Shoot-to-kill mentality’ hits home for Dwayne Wade

Last month (July 13), four black NBA superstars took the stage at this years politically correct sports awards show, the ESPYs.

Of course anything on or having to do with the sports network ESPN or its affiliates is left-leaning and politically correct – quite often more rabidly than the liberal news media.

We learned that fact long ago (2003), when the network hired Rush Limbaugh to do a segment on its popular football show, “NFL Sunday Countdown,” telling him he could say anything he likes and then firing him for doing just that. read more
