Governor Malloy of Connecticut and Sen. Harry Reid ought to read both of these articles and contemplate what relevance they have for each of them today. The mighty combustion of small events, and other lessons from the First World War and How Nicky and Willy could have prevented World War I.
“Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association president Erik Blake said at the press conference that the provision giving police added discretion on firearms identification cards is ‘not about being capricious or arbitrary or taking away people’s rights,’” the Globe report continued. That’s one side of the mouth talking. The other side shows what kind of “discretion” the chiefs are demanding.
The Smith’s PP1 Pocket Pal is only $7.99 on Amazon, which to me is a no-brainer. Being able to always keep my knives sharp is easily worth eight bucks. If you’ve ever tried to chop tomatoes with a dull knife I’m sure you’ll agree with me. Of course, there are more expensive sharpening solutions and complete systems out there that certainly do a better and finer sharpening job than the PP1 Pocket Pal, and by all means invest in a more extensive sharpening solution if you have a lot of knives and tools you want to keep sharp for the long term. But if you’re just getting started then you get a lot of bang for the buck with the PP1 Pocket Pal. I’ve tried other sub-$10 sharpeners, including some other Smith’s products, but out of those this one is my favorite.
On Saturday, a small group took to the streets of the Twin Cities, to protest illegal immigration. They call themselves, Three Percenters. They say they are dedicated to action, education and reform of government, they believe has gotten too large to effectively operate.

That black gun rights activists are treated differently than white ones over the same advocacy issue is racist, pure and simple. But then again, what do I know, being what an official representative of a national gun ban group dismissed as “a white gun nut”?
Received this email from a long-time Three Percenter:
Mike, I've owned and used a Simple Pump hand pump for over 6 years. I'll give it a solid thumbs up. http://www.simplepump.com/My well's draw depth is over 120 feet. The hand-stroke is easy, even my wife has no problem using this unit. You can co-locate the pump on your well head with an electric pump and use the same casing if you have a wide enough bore. ( Simple Pump's web site covers all of this in detail.)This is one of the few hand pumps in the world built to pump water from over 300 feet down. I'm constantly amazed at the deer in the headlights look I get from most prep-minded patriots when I ask them if they have a reliable supply of drinking water that is NOT dependent on their city mains or electrical power.Huh ?Yeah, water isn't "tacti-cool" or fun to talk about, but it's a fact that the average person will not last 4 days without water. Ask anyone who has humped a pack how important water is.Semper Fi,Joe
John Wallace, the Vice President of NY Oath Keepers talks about a private New York State Counter Terrorism bulletin from the New York State Intelligence Center (NYSIC) dated June 12, 2014, targeting Oath Keepers and III percenters as a danger to the police; and what the proposed Oath Keeper response will be.

This is an important lecture with much fascinating and useful information. One note for those who may, after watching, be disappointed that Halbrook does not make a big deal about -- and actually is not particularly supportive of -- ascribing Nazi motives to latter-day Lagerführers: He is a scholar, whose work must be accepted in academic and legal circles, and once you go from being a researcher/recorder to ardent, agenda-driven polemicist, those doors get slammed rather quickly and permanently. His value is where he's at doing what he's doing, presenting honest findings.
Republican lawmakers on Thursday criticized the Bureau of Land Management’s handling of the April standoff with Clark County rancher Cliven Bundy, saying tensions could have been eased by local authorities rather than the BLM’s use of heavily armed agents. “Whether Bundy was right or wrong, was the BLM’s response reasonable? Anyone watching that unfolding fiasco can answer it was completely insane,” said Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., who added that guns should be taken out of the hands of federal land managers.
The 1946 Georgia lynching was a quadruple killing that took place in the northern part of the U.S. state of Georgia in the summer of 1946. Done on a bridge in Walton and Oconee counties between Monroe and Watkinsville, the case attracted national attention. While the FBI investigated in 1946, it was unable to prosecute. New publicity in the 1990s led to a new investigation, but the case has not been solved.
