No More Regime Change

Juan Guaido

I don’t often disagree with President Trump or Vice President Pence on policy, but what we’re hearing regarding the whole Venezuela situation bothers me.

Everyone in their right minds would agree that Nicolás Maduro Moros, current president of Venezuela is a bad guy. And by bad guy, I mean like spawn of Satan bad guy. As bad as was Hugo Chávez, Maduro is worse.

Conditions in Venezuela are already terrible and getting worse all the time. Food is scarce and clean water, almost nonexistent. People are being forced to drink and cook what little food they have in the same foul water in which they wash their clothes (by hand) and children bath in. It’s a miracle that diseases haven’t yet run rampant.

Yet Maduro is unfazed, blaming the plight of “his” people on outside forces aligning against him and his regime. Sounds a lot like Kim Jong Un. read more

Thank Goodness for the British Muslim Community

I know it’s wrong to, but I am loving this. And I would love to have been a fly on the wall when the tortured decision was made by the ultra-progressives in the U.K. to end a program they celebrated. What am I referring to? Well, read on to find out – and enjoy as I did.

from the Federalist:

Feminists Couldn’t Get Trans Ideology Out Of UK Public Schools, But Muslims Did

In the United Kingdom, where the LGBT+ agenda is well entrenched in the school system, there have been protests from the Muslim population against these so-called teachings of tolerance. In Birmingham, a program called No Outsiders, organized by Andrew Moffatt, has been on the curriculum to teach students as young as five the ins and outs of same-sex families, inclusivity, and diversity.

Moffatt, who is deputy head teacher at Parkfield Community School, developed the program “to ensure future younger generations learn about acceptance and respect of others.” While that’s a rather non-offensive ethos, what sowed tensions in the community was the introduction of LGBT+ content in the program. read more

The U.S. Army has officially selected the Brugger and Thomet APC9K to outfit its Personal Security Details.

The APC9K is the first new submachine gun for the U.S. Army since the M3 “Greasegun” of World War II. The service will buy 350 of the compact automatic weapons for $2.5 million, with an option to buy 1,000 more. The B&T APC9K beat out guns from more than ten other companies, including Colt and Heckler and Koch, as well as guns based on the M-16 and MP-5 weapons platforms.

The APC9K is an entirely new submachine gun developed in conjunction with and for EKO Cobra, Austria’s counterterrorism unit. The gun uses a closed-bolt blowback system, has a maximum rate of fire of 1,080 rounds per minute, and weighs just 5.9 pounds with 30-round magazine, foregrip, and Aimpoint micro red dot aiming sight. It’s chambered in 9-millimeter Parabellum and comes standard with two 30-round translucent magazines.

Back in 1991, paleontologists from Canada’s University of Alberta discovered the fossilized remains of a Tyrannosaurus rex in the province of Saskatchewan. Nicknamed “Scotty” in honor of a celebratory bottle of Scotch that was enjoyed when its skeleton was found, it has now been declared the world’s largest T rex. read more

Podcast – A Good Crisis is Tailor Made for a Gun Grab

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The New Zealand Mosque shootings was a crisis, tailor made for a State crack down on freedom. But despite the gun grab in New Zealand, liberal politicians have insisted forever, that they don’t want to take away our guns here in the U.S.

But it’s just like socialism. Years ago, if someone on the right accused someone on the left of being a socialist, it would have sparked outrage. How dare we try to label them as socialist. They would say that we’re just fearmongering.

Now, not many years later, socialism has all but been entirely embraced by the left. I mean, they’ve always embraced it in some form. It’s just now they’re admitting to it, and no longer shy away from the “S” word. Socialism of course.

And like socialism, American gun-grabbers have begun to take the mask of reason off. However, the one thing standing in their way is the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which is unique and superior to all others, and not subject to the crisis du jour.

Thank Heavens for that. read more

Without the Second Amendment, We Would be New Zealand

This is just one more demonstration of the sheer genius of our Founders. They understood human nature as few have. And thank God for George Mason, Elbridge Gerry and the anti-Federalists, who insisted that a Bill of Rights be added to our Constitution, for without it, we would be in the same predicament as are law-abiding New Zealand gun owners.

from Conservative Review:

New Zealand’s knee-jerk gun ban is EXACTLY why we have the Second Amendment

Thank goodness we have the Second Amendment. I say that a lot, but I’m especially grateful after seeing the latest news out of New Zealand.

Less than a week after the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand has moved to ban and confiscate semi-automatic long guns. read more

Hamas Shoots Gaza Protesters

During World War II, most Soviet Soldiers were conscripted into fighting for the Motherland against the invading Nazi Army. Many soldiers didn’t necessarily wish to fight for Moscow, but were nonetheless forced to.

One might say: “Well, what’s so wrong with that? We had the draft during the Vietnam War. Many of our boys weren’t thrilled about being forced to fight. Many would have, and in fact did, stay home to protest the War.

But while both are true, there was a big difference in the way our troops were treated and how the Soviets dealt with their draftees.

Our draftees were treated as any other soldier, while the Soviets treated their conscripts as cannon fodder, actually firing on any soldiers who did not continue to advance, even in the face of massacre by the Nazis. They called these executioners, barrier troops. read more

A new video on YouTube shows a how U.S. troops train to operate against enemy mechanized forces, in this case Russian tanks. U.S. soldiers at a base in southern Germany have several aging armored personnel carriers modified to impersonate Russian tanks, giving units the ability to train against opponents that kinda, sorta look Moscow’s finest. read more

Jack Skopinski’s rivet-packing electric trikes and four-wheelers like to tilt. It’s become something of a signature for EV4 machines over the years. But now the Polish engineer has created an off-road electric trail hugger that doesn’t sport a tilting mechanism. The EV4 Mountain Cart is designed to allow disabled riders to cleanly and quietly zip down dirt tracks, up grassy hills and through forest trails. read more
