Navy Top Gun Trainer: Social Conditioning Focus Is Suffocating Retention Efforts

Via LH

Social “conditioning” programs aimed at making the U.S. military a kinder, gentler, more lawsuit-proof workplace have begun supplanting its core mission: fighting and killing enemies.

That’s the open message a former Top Gun instructor is sending the U.S. Navy’s top brass.

The website of the nonprofit U.S. Naval Institute is featuring this month a lengthy study by Commander Guy Snodgrass, who cautions that a lack of trust in senior Naval leadership – borne from a combination of factors that includes too great an emphasis on social issues and not enough on fighting wars – is precipitating a severe enlistment and retention crisis.

How to Shoot a Rifle Off-Hand


We used the sling in the standing position on my rifle team.

The standing shot was once the measure of true marksmanship. Phoebe Ann Moses, as Annie Oakley, shattered golf balls tossed into the air by aiming using a mirror. She pinged pennies from the air and sent 25 shots into one ragged hole in a playing card at the rate of one per second. Off-hand, Ad Topperwein hit 987 thrown 2 ¼-inch disks with 1,000 .22 bullets.

Okay, so you’re a genetic furlong and a few hundred thousand rounds from such wizardry. But the standing shot is worth cultivating. First, however, you must accept that off-hand shooting is manifestly unsteady. Your center of gravity is high; you’ve got just two points of contact with Mother Earth. But these six pointers will get your rounds on target.

What Actually Happened With Smedley D. Butler And Stonewall Jackson's Arm?


  "The Park Service removed the plaque when it acquired the Ellwood property in 1977"

Now why in the world did they do that?


One morning in 2007 I snuck off to the Wilderness/Chancellorsville battlefield; it's about a 50 minute drive south for me. As it was a beautiful day it was good convertible weather.

I went partially to either prove or debunk something I was told when I was in the Marine Corps. The story goes like this: At the Battle of Chancellorsville in May, 1863, "Stonewall" Jackson was hit by his own men while doing some nighttime scouting. His left arm was amputated and he later died of complications.There are three places in Virginia associated with this: a stone next to the visitor's center that marks where he was hit, the house on the other side of I-95 where he died (called the Stonewall Jackson "Shrine" - which tells you something about the South), and the place where his arm was buried.

The Politician’s corpse was laid away.

For I had longed to see him hanged.

Why are there no Sandy Hook Victim’s Lawsuits?


What are the odds, in today's world, of 26 victimized families at Sandy Hook, ALL deciding not to sue a multi-millionaire, who is seemingly an easy target?

Peter Lanza has a lot of money. Whether you believe he is responsible for the actions of his son, or not, you cannot deny that the man is loaded by most people's standards. Are you aware that he was paying Nancy Lanza over $250,000 a year to take care of Adam?

Our best clue of his actual salary comes from Yahoo:

    But where is the father's culpability in all of this? The General Electric financial executive, who makes over a million dollars a year helping his company evade taxes, has so far gotten a pass from the media and the public.

Before I go on, I want to note that I do not believe that Peter Lanza should be sued and many of our readers will not either. But in today's world when people see dollar signs and opportunity they jump. I just find it very odd that none of those 26 families is suing.

RI State Senator to Second Amendment Supporter: "Go *bleep* Yourself"

Dick’s Sporting Goods Now Discriminating Against Law-Abiding Gun Owners

 photo1 (4)

 No to Dick's.

It wasn’t that long ago when Dick’s Sporting Goods pulled all black semi-automatic rifles from their shelves. They felt that in light of the Sandy Hook tragedy, these guns possibly should not be sold.

This of course caused massive complaints against Dick’s, by law-abiding gun owners protesting their lunacy.

Dick’s has now returned for round two! A member of Gun Rights Across America we’ll call “John” went shopping for .308 cartridges at the Dick’s in Niles, IL. When he went to checkout, he was bombarded with a list of questions after presenting his current Illinois FOID Card (Firearms Owners Identification Card – Required to purchase guns and/or ammunition under IL State Law). These questions are not required to purchase ammunition, only a current FOID Card is necessary, so John declined to answer and asked for a manager.

No Justice Department Charges Against Ohio Woman Who Voted Six Times for Obama

Via avordvet


Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati.  The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection.

Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President.  In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

Open the floodgates? Indiana becomes first state to scrap Common Core


Indiana has become the first of 45 states to opt out of the national education standard known as Common Core, and critics of the controversial K-12 program say the move could "open the floodgates" for others to follow.

Growing criticism over costs imposed by the program, as well as fears that by setting a national education standard, the program has already begun dictating curriculum, has made Common Core an increasingly polarizing issue. Although the program has both Republican and Democrat supporters, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence predicted his state will be the first of many to rethink participation.

RUMSFELD on Obama: ‘ "A trained ape can get a status of forces agreement"


Donald Rumsfeld, who served as U.S. Defense Secretary under President George W. Bush, blames poor diplomacy by the Obama administration for the current strained relations with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

"Our relationship with Karzai and with Afghanistan was absolutely first-rate in the Bush administration," Rumsfeld told Fox News's Greta Van Susteren on Monday. "It has gone down hill like a toboggan ever since the Obama administration came in."

Rumsfeld pointed to the fact that the Obama administration has failed to get Karzai to sign an agreement that would allow some U.S. troops to remain in Afghanistan after 2014, when combat ends.

Texas Teenager Issues Officer a Handwritten Parking Ticket – The Cop’s Reaction Is Just as Great

Via LH

Screengrab via KPRC

When 14-year-old Annie James, of Baytown, Texas, saw a police car illegally parked in her neighborhood, she decided to teach the officer a lesson. So she hand-wrote a $10 parking ticket and placed it on Officer Tommy King’s windshield, whose patrol car was parked in a fire zone at the Bay Oaks apartment complex.

“I came to my car and I saw a piece of paper on my windshield,” King told KPRC-TV. “I took it off and opened it and read it and I started laughing immediately.”

The “citation” informed King of his violation and stated he needed to pay $10 to the apartment complex’s manager.

Lincoln’s Leftist Associates—Part One

Via Billy


The more you look at Abraham Lincoln the more his socialist proclivities jump out at you from whatever printed page you happen to be browsing. Once you have begun to grasp the fact of his socialist worldview then you can see things in reading about him that you just never noticed before.

I’ve seen articles that referred to radical Tom Paine, the supporter and promoter of the terrorist French Revolution, as “Lincoln’s hero.” If you have done any reading about Tom Paine and his views, that one statement should tell you something about Lincoln.

Awhile back, John Nichols, who writes for the Nation, did an article for the International Socialist Review which was entitled Reading Karl Marx with Abraham Lincoln–Utopian socialists, German communists, and other republicans. Very interesting title, and so very on target. The socialists don’t deny their involvement with Lincoln, they parade it right down Main Street, partly because they feel that decades of public “education” have rendered most Americans too dumb to realize what they are saying, and partly because they are just downright proud that Lincoln was among their number, whether he ever joined any socialist party or not (he didn’t, that we know of at this point). However, the mindset was there, which shows that socialism and communism in this country were a serious problem already by the middle of the 1800s.

So you call yourself a Republican.

The Grand Ole Party of Lincoln.

All hail Abraham Lincoln, the savior of your country.

Or the destroyer....

None of realize it was Lincoln who destroyed the US Constitution.

He admitted he did!

He was the one who committed treason against the country.

He admitted he did!

He was also a Marxist who closely followed Karl Marx for years.

And admitted he did!

He made it possible for 10s of thousands of Marxists to come to the USA after their
failed revolution and hold positions all through the Federal Government.

He admitted he did!

Sheriff Clarke: Liberal policies have destroyed the black family

Via WiscoDave

Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr.

The latest attempt by liberals to help black people is underway in our K-12 urban public schools.

These do-gooders are now defining down socially acceptable behavior for black students in school.

 Bad behavior is being excused and attempts to hold black kids accountable by enforcing codes of conduct are called racist.

Having a sense of discipline has always been considered a virtue, a redeeming quality, but now its roots are claimed to lie in racism.

White liberal elites have chimed in about school codes of conduct.

The Capital Times newspaper of Madison, Wis., recently chronicled bad behavior by black students in its public schools. In the story, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said that racial discrimination in school discipline codes “is a real problem today.”

The white superintendent of the Madison public schools believes that “we need to address head-on our racial bias and the assumptions we make of students who are in the classroom.”

Really? Where I come from, bad behavior has always been unacceptable and is codified not by race but by societal norms to keep chaos from reigning.

Comment by Anonymous on Police Murder James Boyd


Just saw this article on WRSA. This pisses me the Ef off. I am a Peace Officer too. Retired Marine Officer with two wars behind me but I am not at war with The People who're are my masters and I am their servant and a Guardian of the Constitution. I and my Sheriff are the ONLY Constitutionally authorized Peace Officers. NOT Chiefs, not Police Officers. They hold no elected executive power duly granted them by the People to be chosen as the Sheriff is to be the choice of the People as the executor of the law. They work for Corporations called cities or States{State Police} and are appointed. The fuckers murdered that guy straight away. The POLICE STATE is here folks. Wake the fuck up. NO ONE trusts the cops anymore to be their shields. "hey need a safe place get behind me. I'll protect you and your Rights". If any peace officer calls themselves a Law Enforcement Officer. You're nothing but a fucking revenuer for the state. 

The Constitution call us Peace Officers for a reason. You can't shoot a kid for NOT dropping an airsoft rifle or anyone for not dropping a firearm. You can only do it if they begin to lift or point it in a threatening fashion. Or look at Fullerton Police. Those fucking NAZI thugs beat that poor homeless man to death. Watch the video and listen to him beg. Fuckers. I am so ashamed that you even wear a badge. Only the Sheriff is the true executor of the Law because he is there at the pleasure of the voters. I have nearly 30 yrs in this biz and I can see the writing on the wall. In the near future if you're wearing a badge you're gonna be a target. Because just like one of the guys who posted here earlier said 'cops' can't be trusted. 

 In the most sense when the People feel this way and the rule of law and Due Process is thrown out but the gov't, then The People themselves see no reason to follow laws. And the one poster was also right...so the fuck what if he was 'camping' where the PTB said they didn't want him too. Wait here in the near future when this fiat currency and this economy shit itself. Wanna some poor, homeless campers then. I just pray I am retired shortly so I am not driving home and some SOB who knows me not, because I am the Constitutionalist, Oath upholding deputy in my department, but because he doesn't know that....I get a .300 win mag come crashing through the side of my head. 

 Brothers, those of you who swore your Oaths and know what they mean. Resist! Do not commit unlawful, illegitimate and criminal act upon the People you swore to protect their Rights. If your actions are outside the law, the Supreme Law of the Land, the Constitution (Art 6, Sec 2 and 3} Then you're acting criminally against The People and they have every right to resist you. CT State badges.....don't do it. Don't follow the illegitimate orders to go get something that is a Constitutionally protected item. If we the badges refuse and stay our oaths...then tyranny cannot be enforced upon free Citizens. The Bill of Rights is part of the Constitution. That makes those Amendments Law as well. 

So refuse and defy unlawful orders. 

Semper Fidelis, Paratus et Vigilio.
