 Fried Squirrel

How to Skin a Squirrel in 1 Minute

August in Kentucky was always a special time of year when I was growing up. The waning days of summer meant squirrel season was about to open, and that hunting season in general was upon us. Many a morning was spent patrolling the woods around our farm, and many a fine meal resulted. Squirrel meat has been held in high regard by American diners since the days of Lewis and Clark. Even James Beard, in his classic “American Cookery”, wrote,
"Squirrel has been written about rapturously for years. And it has long been associated with elegant dining as well as with the simple food of the trapper and the nomad.”

Fast forward 30 or so years and squirrel season has once again taken a front-row seat.

Thousands of NRA supporters turned out at Virginia's capitol building on Monday in a show of opposition that pushed Democrats in the state legislature to moderate or abandon some of their strictest gun-control proposals.

"We are beyond impressed by today's turnout," D.J. Spiker, Virginia state director for the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, told the Washington Free Beacon. "You can see the passion and enthusiasm that the citizens of Virginia have in joining us in this fight."

Trump sends 'the most liked Persian tweet' in history of Twitter

President Trump's tweet in Farsi expressing support for Iranians protesting Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has already earned over 200,000 likes, making it the "most liked Persian tweet" in the social media giant's history, according to a leading think tank adviser.

On Saturday, protesters in the country called upon Khamenei to step down after Iran admitted to shooting down a commercial airliner on which dozens of Iranian citizens were traveling. That evening, the president sent out a tweet in Farsi, saying that he stands with their efforts.

“To the brave and suffering Iranian people: I have stood with you since the beginning of my presidency and my government will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely. Your courage is inspiring,” Trump wrote.

As the Year 2020 Begins–Southerners Take Stock


As 2020 commences it is perhaps appropriate that we take stock—that we take a look globally at just where we are, politically, culturally, religiously.

All our basic and fundamental social institutions are under tremendous stress, if not outright attack, not just legally and politically, but far more insidiously, in how they are defined and how they affect us.

Our very language is altered to reflect this radical transformation: words and phrases are banned, old words are recast and redefined, implicit (and often explicit) speech codes have more effect than anything that the older “less free” society of our grandfathers experienced. And this linguistic terrorism—for that is what it is—is inculcated into our young from the very beginning, in the primary grades, via television and Hollywood, by unthinking parents, by friends.

A shocking new poll has discovered that 47 percent of young Democrats believe that other countries are better than the United States. Moreover, many young Americans admit that they wouldn’t mind other countries becoming as militarily powerful as the United States.

Slightly more than one third — 36 percent — of Americans 18 to 29 say that other countries are better than the United

 States, according to a recent poll released by Pew

Gun Control-Loving Dem In VA: 2A Supporters Are 'Little Kids' Who Are 'Mentally Ill'

Gun control has become a hot topic issue in the Commonwealth of Virginia, especially since Gov. Blackface (also known as Ralph Northam) was re-elected last November. He has pushed his anti-gun agenda heavily, especially since Democrats took control of the state's General Assembly.

Since then, Second Amendment-loving Americans have stood up and made their voices heard. Counties have repeatedly declared themselves a sanctuary for the right to keep and bear arms. In fact, one county sheriff said he would deputize citizens should the General Assembly move forward with their proposed gun control laws, like an assault weapons ban, a "high capacity" magazine ban and a prohibition on the import, sales and possession of firearm suppressors.

Thousands of cops, veterans, supporters pledge to join militia in Virginia to combat unconstitutional laws

 Thousands of cops, veterans, supporters pledge to join militia in Virginia to combat unconstitutional laws


Things are getting really bad in Virginia. But this group isn’t going down without a fight.

Virginia – Monday morning, Law Enforcement Today reported on how Tazewell County, Virginia is crafting a militia to defend the Constitution in the state.  And within hours, we were flooded with thousands of emails from people across the state – police officers, veterans, and patriotic Americans – who said they are joining.

And it’s a movement that’s gaining traction across the state.

Wrote one man:
“I am Vietnam vet, ex-police, retired and am behind your ideas 100% , anything I can do I would like to help.
I live in Franklin County, which voted down being a sanctuary city being the council is Democratic, a moonshine county giving up their guns is dumb.
The South gave up their flag, their statues and now they want their guns, sounds like Hitler’s Germany.”

Project Veritas Releases the First Expose of Its Footage Inside the Sanders Campaign and It’s Disturbing

Via Billy

Earlier, I wrote on the stunning undercover footage taken by Project Veritas of a staffer within the Bernie Sanders campaign promoting communist gulags and forcing reeducation on Trump supporters as he referred to them as “Nazis.”

As promised, Project Veritas’s founder, James O’Keefe, released the first video of a series centering around staffer Kyle Jurek. Jurek seems to be a die-hard Sanders fan with some very extreme views.

Leftists Freak Out After Trump Meets Vince Vaughn During National Championship Game

I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don’t have the right to bear arms because of burglars; we have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government

 Leftists were angered on Monday night after video showed famed conservative actor Vince Vaughn meeting with President Donald Trump during the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship game in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Leftist blogger Timothy Burke tweeted out a video clip, writing, “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it.”

Southerners are More Likely to Serve in Military


 Carlos Hathcock

As this New York Times article documents, Southerners are more likely to volunteer for military service.  Those “who sign up overwhelmingly come from counties in the South and a scattering of communities” close to military bases like Colorado Springs.

“The South . . . produces 20 percent more recruits than would be expected, based on its youth population. The states in the Northeast . . . produce 20 percent fewer. Fayetteville, N.C. . . . provided more than twice as many military enlistment contracts as Manhattan, even though Manhattan has eight times as many people.”  Contrary to the politically correct expectations “African-Americans are [only] slightly more likely to serve.” Since the draft was abolished in the 1970s, Southerners have been more likely to volunteer. Their eagerness to defend America despite having ancestors in the Confederate Army may be one reason that the Army retains the names of ten military bases after Confederate generals.

North Carolina students will be required to pass personal finance class for graduation

Currently, North Carolina students are required to take four social studies classes to graduate: They are World History, American History I, American History II and American History: Founding Principles, Civics and Economics. 
Starting next year, students will again require four social studies credits to graduate, but they will be World History, American History, Founding Principles of the United States of America and North Carolina, as well as Economics and Personal Finance.
The new course will replace one of two American history classes currently required for high school graduation. 
Starting next school year, high school students in North Carolina will be required to take a personal finance class before they can graduate.

The State Board of Education approved the change Thursday at the direction of state lawmakers. The new finance course will replace one of two American history classes currently required for graduation. David Stegall, the deputy superintendent of innovation, said the change puts North Carolina more in line with the rest of the country.
