What we have is an intolerant "anti-gun" culture that is violent about their wishes.
What we have is a segment of women who want special privileges and don't mind bullying the rest of our overly tolerant society to get them.
OK, maybe we do - but it's a system of racism against white people. Specifically, white males.
Getting rid of Obamacare is simply discontinued forcing of xx million people to purchase health insurance.

Run the US Federal government for about 5 minutes.
One liberal even said that since Trump "only" made $150 million in 2005, that he wasn't a billionaire. Proving once again that liberals and facts don't walk the same path.
One liberal made this information public. Will he be charged? Or is it a "she?"
The liberal who displayed a 30-round magazine on live TV in an area where they were banned was never charged.

"Please never talk to me again about being "pro-life" if you advocate cutting off money for famine relief, leaving families to starve."
"Don't claim to be "pro-life" if you advocate XXX."
If you don't support Meals on Wheels you're not a good Christian, according to people who aren't Christians and don't believe in Jesus.
If you (don't) support XXX you're not a good Christian, according to people who aren't Christians and don't believe in Jesus.

“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations (author's note: the Bible app gives a note here saying "or Gentiles) will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on His right and the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you took care of Me; I was in prison and you visited Me.’ “Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or without clothes and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and visit You? ’ “And the King will answer them, ‘I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’ Then He will also say to those on the left, ‘Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels! For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink; I was a stranger and you didn’t take Me in; I was naked and you didn’t clothe Me, sick and in prison and you didn’t take care of Me.’ “Then they too will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or without clothes, or sick, or in prison, and not help You? ’ “Then He will answer them, ‘I assure you: Whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me either.’ “And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Probably from etho; a race (as of the same habit), i.e. A tribe; specially, a foreign (non-Jewish) one (usually, by implication, pagan) -- Gentile, heathen, nation, people.

Progressives, by definition, wish to change the country away from how it is, in favor of their interpretation of progress.
Lately, the progressive interpretation of progress is globalism. These leftists have refused the "patriarchy," as it has existed since the dawn of mankind in favor of the ultimate patriarchy - one world government. The biggest Big Daddy of them all. Progressives call conservatives "afraid" of these changes. Progressives claim conservatives "fear" the unknown.
The readers of this blog tend to be Constitutionalist, Hard Right, Libertarian leaning Right, and #AltRight . These people know exactly what globalism leads to. We do not fear globalism, we abhor it. It is an undesirable outcome, to say the least. We do not consider globalism to be progress. We in America fought against a king over 200 years ago for a reason.
It is a basic instinct and right of all species to fight for the survival of their own kind. The political Right understands and realizes that this is what's going on right now - a fight for the survival of our own.

Ammo to be reviewed: Hornady .223 Remington 62 grain FMJ Black. This ammunition retails for $10.99 (plus taxes, of course) per box of 20 at Academy Sports. According to Hornady's website, it has a muzzle velocity of 3100 fps from a 24 inch barrel. It has a ballistic coefficient of .274 - putting it ahead of most 55 grain ammo, but behind the M855 stuff.
The real question is, with Hornady's reputation for accuracy, will this ammo perform? 55 and 62 grain ammo in bulk typically has a mechanical best of 4 MOA. Will Hornady Black be better?
A 10 round group was fired from 100 yards. As you can see on the Birchwood Casey 3" target, the group was a little over 3" - or right at 3 MOA. Slightly better than M855. However, of note is the group was fairly tight, save the two "fliers." Perhaps it is capable of better and the two outlying shots were this shooter's errors. Perhaps another rifle would like this ammo better.
In either case, I think this ammo warrants sincere consideration from anybody wishing to stock fairly accurate ammo as inexpensively as possible. If you and / or your rifle get better results, then this might be ideal ammo for you.
The cost ($10.99) is virtually equal to most M855 clone ammo in these parts currently. If you have better accuracy results, then it would be well worth the investment.

Not much patriotism among the Libertarians.
Most people would only be destructive with absolute Liberty.
Most people not only seek authority, but need authority in their lives.
I cannot abide the libertarian stance on abortion.
I cannot abide the libertarian stance on immigration.

On Saturday, March 4, I took my family to the Trump rally in downtown Nashville. There were well over 1000 Patriots there - even the #fakenews estimated 1300-1500. There were maybe 30 or so protesters, if that. I didn't take pictures - too busy doing other important things - but many of my friends did take pics. Tennessee Star has some good photos.
I will be eternally thankful for going to the rally today. My children got to see live & in person the vile nature of the left. I've never sheltered them, but it's one thing to see daddy say something, and it's something altogether different to see the BS for yourself.
The leftist protesters spewed venom from their lips in the form of profanities, lies, false allegations, and clear hatred. Many of the leftist protesters wore masks or scarves to cover their faces. Usually, criminals do attempt to conceal their identity whilst committing crimes.
The Trump supporters were courteous and wore smiles. There were several prominent Tennesseans there who spoke to the crowd. The mood of the crowd was one of optimism. Never have I seen so many red hats - #MakeAmericaGreatAgain .
Tennessee state troopers stood watch, making sure the protesters remained outside the rally area. This was done out of concern for the safety of the protesters, to be sure. I personally knew over two dozen of the rally attendees - and I'd be surprised if a single one of them was not armed at the time. I certainly was armed. Pretty sure a good percentage of the crowd was, as well. No, the troopers were not there to protect us from the protesters - it was the other way around.
There were Trump supporters there from all walks of life. Both genders and all races were represented. The protesters were mostly white-guilt Millennials coupled with a few urban yutes. Many motorcycle riders were there supporting Trump. And the running theme was a desire to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain .

This is an excellent policy, and one which I have advocated since my WND days. The state does not define marriage. The state cannot define marriage. The state has never defined marriage; it is an institution that long precedes the state.The state has the right to create whatever legal contractual relationships between whatever parties it likes, but those relationships are not marriage. The Alabama bill would clarify that, and would have the benefit of removing those whose marriages are religious in nature from the predations of the state's divorce courts.If conservatives want to save marriage, then this is a policy they should take to the national level.
Let there be marriage.
Let the two be completely separate.

DMR - Designated Marksman Rifle. Every Minuteman group needs at least one Designated Marksman. Some groups use the mentality of one DM per fire team, and they base movement and tactics off of DM support.
But what goes into the rifle?
Here is one example.
This rifle, named Lucy, is custom built. Most good DMRs are. She has an 18" White Oak Armament barrel with rifle length gas tube. She has a Fail Zero bolt. She wears a 16.5" rail from SLR that free floats the barrel. She has a Geissele SSA trigger. The A2 stock is from Magpul. She wears a J-type Compensator to assist with faster target reacquisition.
In this photo, Lucy is making use of a standard 30-round magazine loaded with M193 clone ammo. Though not the hardest hitting or most precise, this ammo is effective out to 300 m regularly. A good DM will carry precision ammo for long range work. This loadout is best for routine patrols and standard entry. With a simple mag change, lucy can rain down 75 grain love from afar.
The optic is fitting of a Modern Minuteman. The Vortex Strike Eagle offers 1-6x magnification. The 1x can be used for CQB. The 6x is good for reaching out. The scope has a Ballistic Drop Compensator reticle, allowing for ranging and firing at the long range.

We wake up this morning to word that former President Obama wire tapped Trump's offices. The way I see it, there are only four possibilities here:
1. The wiretap was legal and Trump's campaign colluded with Russia.
If this were true, we would have learned of it prior to the electoral college convention.
2. The wiretap was legal and Trump's campaign did not collude with Russia.
Very possible outcome. If this is found to be the case, expect Sessions to press forward and uncover some other dirt that's out there on the Democrats. Republicans may have a super majority by the time all the Dems are prosecuted.
3. The wiretap was illegal and Trump's campaign colluded with Russia.
If this were true, we'd never have heard about any of it.
4. The wiretap was illegal and Trump's campaign did not collude with Russia.
This is the most likely outcome, based on the history of and the veracity of the parties involved. If this turns out to be true, it will be Demageddon. Dems will be prosecuted by Sessions and Obama will be one of them.
What say you?

Make no mistake, the churches that are growing rapidly are also trying very hard to improve, so don't think I'm going to say that's not a part of it. But, I will say that continual improvement is not the main reason why some churches grow while others shrink. And leadership from rapidly growing churches almost never post the "church-self-help" articles on social media. But again, these are side topics - not the main reason why.
In the last 5 years, I've attended two other churches that needed all the help they could in attendance and participation, and one that was that way, but then started rapid growth. What is the difference?
The difference, simply put, is BOLDNESS.
People don't was a sissy in the pulpit.
Just as the American people elected a bold leader, they elect to follow bold church leadership, as well.
A little over two years ago, Global Vision Bible Church would have a little over 100 in attendance each Sunday. These days it's in excess of 500. Back then, you could easily find a seat in early or late service. This coming Sunday, a 3rd service will be added to relieve the pressure of overcrowded services. GVBC had to purchase additional property last year just to make parking lot space - the original 46 parking spaces wouldn't fit half of the cars that park there now.
Pastor Greg Locke has always been bold. He is certainly an Alpha-male. He has never shied away from tough topics. He does not (and never has) taught the feel-good Christianity. But when he took the boldness a step further is when the church exploded in growth. Pastor Locke took his simple, yet Biblical messages to social media. Proclaiming boldness to the masses.
Now, just about every week, there is a new visitor to GVBC who drove well over an hour to get there (some have come from overseas!). These and even local visitors almost all reference Pastor Locke's social media presence as the reason why they came to visit. Thousands more watch his sermons as they are live-stream broadcast, and in the video archives.
All the notoriety does not come without a price. For every video that Pastor Locke posts that gets a million views, there are thousands of liberals and atheists that seek out his public pages and slander his name and give grief to the truth by spewing hatred, lies, and filth. Pastor Locke will frequently reference that sort of behavior as nonsense, and that's a great descriptor.
People are reaching out for bold, truthful leadership. The Gamma pastors are unwittingly killing off their church memberships. And in the process, these feckless pastors are causing harm to Christianity as a whole. It's time to stand up. It's time to take back our country and we can start by taking back our churches with bold leadership.

Along with a chest rig, many Modern Minutemen wear a battle belt. This is one example.
This Rifleman has flashlights and tools on the chest rig, so a simple duty belt suffices. To the Rifleman's right is the Sig P226 pistol. This pistol has 20-round magazines, extended hand grips (protecting from magazine "bite"), and Trijicon night sights. To the Rifleman's left are two spare 20-round mags. In the rear is a dump pouch.
This Rifleman wishes to add one or two AR15 mag holders to the rig, just to make entry possible on recon missions (running light without the full chest rig).

I came across this article on social media. It is enlightening. Quoted article in italics. Bold for the headline, and other instances of bold are my emphasis.
“We Are So Hated”: What It’s Like to Be a Ted Cruz Fan (and NeverTrumper) at CPAC
Margaret and Fiona Moodie have been coming to the Conservative Political Action Conference for a decade. It’s a family thing. Blonde and slender, this mother-daughter pair from Bowie, Maryland, is active in local Republican politics and once even ran for office together. They’re lifelong conservative activists, and CPAC always felt like a reunion with friends—until this year.
“We are so hated,” Margaret, 58, told me on Friday.
Well, when you act in an anti-social manner, as the #NeverTrump movement has done, then the social ones tend to dislike your behavior. Even the Bible has something to say about this (emphasis mine): Psalm 1:1 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers.”
The Moodies are Ted Cruz supporters. They backed the Texas senator in last year’s Republican primary, and were even at the Indiana rally where he suspended his campaign. (If you watch video of the speech, they say, you can hear their screams of dismay.) The Moodies have not come around to President Donald Trump, whom they still consider unprincipled and morally repugnant, and this has made them outcasts in CPAC’s sea of “Make America Great Again” hats.
“There’s a lot of really angry people,” said Fiona, 24.
Yes, and the majority of the angry people are the liberal snowflakes and the #NeverTrump ers, but I repeat myself.
After hearing Trump’s rambling speech at the conference on Friday morning, the Moodies were aghast that he didn’t talk about unifying the conservative movement, and they criticized his griping about the media. “It doesn’t win over hearts and minds, and it doesn’t make jobs or opportunities for people,” Fiona said. “We’re not getting back to the Constitution, and that’s what this election was supposed to be about.”
There is no unifying with a group that doesn't want to unify. The #NeverTrump movement has had the better part of a year to come on over, yet they pout and refuse like spoiled toddlers. Again, they act like the liberal snowflakes. Y'all unify!
The Moodies were especially appalled by Trump’s focus on “fake news,” since they see the president himself as a promotor of the same—a serial liar who, they’ll never forget, suggested Cruz’s father was involved in John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
“Our First Amendment says we can have fake news—even if he doesn’t like it,” Margaret said. “I mean, that is the absolute bedrock of who were are. I don’t like people making up stories. I don’t. However, that is the cost we pay for freedom of speech. It truly is. Deep Throat in Watergate? If it hadn’t been for an anonymous source, Watergate wouldn’t have been exposed. It would not. He is trying to shut down the voices of those Deep Throat–esque people. I think it’s horrifying. I truly think it’s horrifying.”
And therein lies the problem... all of the other Republican candidates - Cruz included - would have kowtowed to the liberal press. Not Trump. He manipulates them. The Master of Puppets.
The Moodies worry, too, that Trump is corroding the conservative movement.
“The issue for me is we’ve lost the ability to intellectually articulate our argument,” Fiona said. A private school teacher of classical piano and American government, she’s even seeing a Trump effect at work. “What I’m seeing with my students is the perpetuation of dumbing down the argument,” she said, “and [thinking] it’s okay to bully people into believing what you believe. I’ve seen the sentiment change.”
And this is problematic, too. There is no erosion of the conservative movement. Trump has been more conservative than any president before him. And that's what really worries the #NeverTrump crowd. Trump is more conservative in office than Cruz ever would have been.
The sentiment has changed at CPAC, too, where an event ostensibly devoted to conservative principles gave Trumpism a full embrace this week. But the Moodies have gotten used to feeling out of place these days, even in their own home: Margaret’s husband supports the president. “It makes dinners very difficult,” she said.
So now we get to the real issue. Maybe all the rest was just projection?
In this strange new political landscape, what are NeverTrump conservatives like the Moodies to do?
“I think it’s an important time for people like us to try and define ourselves,” Fiona said. “When I see him doing things I approve of, I’ll be honest and fair, but we have to be able to define conservatism as something outside of Trump and ensure that we stay true to those values.”
Margaret gave a more curt reply to my question: “We cry.”
How many times in a single article can a #NeverTrump er act exactly like a liberal snowflake? Oh, wait, there may not be one iota of difference. And that's why Trump is in office and not Cruz.
