Update: RT is now reporting that an Obama administration official has confirmed to CNN that this was in fact an Israeli attack. There is still no comment from the Syrian or Israeli government. (Source)
Most gun control advocates still cloak their true intentions behind opposition to “assault rifles”. But some are coming out of the closet, explicitly or tacitly admitting that their goal is a full ban on private arms. Gen McChrystal said in Jan 2013, “I think serious action is necessary. Sometimes we talk about very limited actions on the edges and I just don’t think that’s enough,” he said. Translation: we’ve been infringing on the Second Amendment, now we need to get serious and ban arms. Continue reading “The War on Ammo”
I have mentioned in a couple of previous posts the Rhodesian method of ‘cover shooting’ (The Drake Method). In response to that, a reader sent me a link to a good article on it. I am going to provide that link, some excerpts, and commentary.
North Dakota is a nasty, oily mess, and nobody bothered to tell anyone who lives there. Since 2012, there have been nearly 750 “oil field incidents” in the boomtown state, none of which were reported to the public. According to records obtained by the Associated Press, nearly 300 of these were serious spills.

When German Chancellor Angela Merkel celebrated the opening of the new U.S. embassy in Berlin in 2008, she could not have imagined that she was blessing the workplace for the largest and most effective gaggle of American spies anywhere outside of the U.S.
It seems straight out of a grade-B movie, but it has been happening for the past eleven years: The NSA has been using Merkel as an instrument to spy on the president of the United States. Continue reading “NSA Spying on the President”
Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- With the war against self-defense currently being waged via the Democrat-led attack on “Stand Your Ground” laws, it’s important to revisit Associate Justice Samuel Alito’s words from McDonald v Chicago (2010): “Individual self-defense is ‘the central component’ of the 2nd Amendment right.”
WASHINGTON D.C. –-(Ammoland.com)- U.S. Senators Mark Pryor (D-AR), John Boozman (R-AR), Thad Cochran (R-MS), and Mary Landrieu (D-LA) today introduced the Farmer and Hunter Protection Act to prevent the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) from unfairly penalizing farmers and sportsmen for rolling their fields during hunting season.
During the summer of 2012, weather conditions in the Southeast caused some harvested rice fields to re-head, creating accidental second growth crops. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service may now view these second growth crops that have been rolled as baited fields, even though this practice was recommended by local cooperative extension services as a way to return nutrients to the soil. Inadvertent baiting of a field can level a fine of up to $100,000 for a farmer, $15,000 for a hunter, and prohibit hunting on the land.

In 1950, there were 2.5 billion humans. Today there are just over 7 billion. In another 30 years, according to U.S. Census Bureau projections, there will be more than 9 billion.
Brad Lyon has a doctoral degree in mathematics and does software development. He wanted to make those numbers visual. Last year he and designer Bill Snebold made a hugely popular interactive simulation map of births and deaths in the U.S. alone—the population of which is on pace to increase 44 percent by 2050. Now, Lyon takes on the world. Continue reading “A Real-Time Map of Births and Deaths”
