Saigon 1994

The man to my right ran a school where I taught Business English and ESL. The Business English was a wonderful class. Most of the students were Chinese/Vietnamese.

Why Is Biden Creating His Own Crises?

Why Is Biden Creating His Own Crises?

What Gov. Andrew Cuomo did to the nursing homes of New York — send COVID-positive patients back into them — Biden is doing to the USA… How do you control a pandemic when our 2,000-mile southern border is a crossing corridor for thousands of infected every single day?

Our mainstream media largely ignored it, the world media did not.

Ascending the stairs of Air Force One on Friday, to fly to Georgia, President Joe Biden slipped and stumbled. Getting up, he slipped again and then fell. The scene was jolting and disquieting.

Adversaries abroad will use it as a metaphor for the decline of the last superpower to emerge from the Cold War.

Ideological Transformation of the Armed Forces

USS Gerald R. Ford CVN-78, Newest  active U.S nuclear supercarrier. May God bless America!

“The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”—George Orwell, 1984.

A recent news release claimed that China now has more naval ships than the United States. While this is true, the United States still has an advantage over China in global sea power. China is now the world’s leading naval ship builder, but most of the People’s Liberation Navy’s new ships are smaller coastal defense ships. Although smaller and shorter range, they are equipped with the latest technology in radar and cruise missiles. In terms of firepower as reflected in naval tonnage, the Chinese Navy has 2.0 million tons, whereas the U.S. Navy has 4.8 million tons and still has technological superiority.

The U.S. is  still the world’s foremost sea power, but China is coming up fast and extending the size, flexibility, and range of surface ships. China now has at least 77 destroyer and cruiser class surface ships, and their latest ship-launched missiles have a range of 4,000 nautical miles, capable of striking Hawaii, Alaska, and the Western U.S. coast. The U.S. has 85 destroyers and cruisers with generally greater firepower.  The Chinese also now have two aircraft carriers, although this is not competitive with 11 U.S. carriers, more aircraft carriers than the rest of the world combined. China has 60 submarines, of which most are diesel, but they are building more nuclear attack and missile subs. About 85 percent of the Chinese Navy fleet is modern. The U.S. has 52 nuclear attack and 18 nuclear missile submarines, the latter carrying the majority of American nuclear strike power.

US military to prioritize lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex people in its decision-making

The U.S. Military will now focus on what really matters with enemies abroad wanting to take us out — LGBTQ rights. This is as China, Iran, and Russia are making fools of the administration and the so-called President Joe.

When we are conquered by our enemies, we can rejoice knowing we will have the most diverse POWs.

The Biden Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, is certifiable and is now pushing LGBTQ rights around the world.

Why doesn’t he mind his own business? That would be a good idea.

Trump Unveils List of People He Considers as Future of the GOP Party in New Interview

 Trump Unveils List of People He Considers as Future of the GOP Party in New Interview

 Ron DeSantis, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Sarah Huckabee, Krista Noem and Josh Hawley.

If he opts not to run again, he said, “some of the names I guess I just mentioned, perhaps, and others” would certainly be among the leading candidates for the nomination.“I’ll make that decision sometime later, but there’s a pretty deep bench,” he continued.

In a new interview on Monday, Donald Trump named a few people who he views as the future of the Republican Party.

Speaking on the debut episode of “The Lisa Boothe Show,” the 45th commander-in-chief made the remarks after being asked who he believed were the ones to watch in the next era of the Grand Old Party.

Biden Begins Immediate Catch-and-Release of Migrant Families Without Issuing Court Dates

 FILE - In this Friday, Feb. 26, 2021, file photo, a migrant family crosses the border into El Paso, Texas, in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The Biden administration hopes to relieve the strain of thousands of unaccompanied children coming to the southern border by terminating a 2018 Trump-era order that discouraged …

A senior-level law enforcement source with U.S.Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in the Rio Grande Valley revealed the implementation of a plan to release migrant families soon after apprehension. The plan radically changes how illegal migrants have been processed in the past and orders Border Patrol agents to quickly release migrant families without notifying the immigration courts or issuing a Notice to Appear.

“This is insane, it is another pull factor that will overwhelm us,” a CBP official with knowledge of the plan told Breitbart Texas anonymously because he is not authorized to speak publically on the matter. “We are creating another entirely different class of aliens we will have to deal with years from now. We will never find most of these aliens once they are released.”

POLITICS Trump endorses challenger against Georgia elections chief

Former President Donald Trump on Monday endorsed a conservative Georgia congressman in his bid to unseat the Republican secretary of state. 

Rep. Jody Hice is the first major challenger to Brad Raffensperger since the secretary of state certified President Joe Biden’s narrow victory in Georgia and disputed Trump’s allegations of fraud.

“Jody has been a steadfast fighter for conservative Georgia values and is a staunch ally of the America First agenda," Trump said. “Unlike the current Georgia Secretary of State, Jody leads out front with integrity. I have 100% confidence in Jody to fight for Free, Fair, and Secure Elections in Georgia, in line with our beloved U.S. Constitution.”

Trump Unloads On Biden, ‘Pathetic’ DHS Head Over Their Border Crisis: ‘Our Country Is Being Destroyed!’

“The pathetic, clueless performance of Secretary Mayorkas on the Sunday Shows today was a national disgrace,” Trump said. “His self-satisfied presentation—in the middle of the massive crisis he helped engineer—is yet more proof he is incapable of leading DHS. Even someone of Mayorkas’ limited abilities should understand that if you provide Catch-and-Release to the world’s illegal aliens[,] then the whole world will come.”

Former President Donald Trump unloaded on Democrat President Joe Biden on Sunday over Biden’s border crisis, saying that the border was secure when he left office and that Biden is singlehandedly responsible for the crisis that has unfolded.

Trump’s remarks came at approximately the same time that Biden claimed on Sunday that he would eventually visit the border and that he knows “what’s going on in those facilities.”

GOP Rep. Andrew Clyde was fined $15,000 for twice bypassing the metal detectors installed at the behest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion.

It was seen as a victory for Pelosi and for the new rule that implemented $5,000 fines for a first offense and $10,000 for a second offense.

Myth-Busting At Widener's: Guns & Locks

shooting a lock

Via Jacob Long Hi Brock, I just wanted to check-in with you to see how 2021 is going so far. I can see you've been busy, I was just reading your post "I Listen"  about southern writers and it reminded me of this quote by William Faulkner:"If a story is in you, it has to come out." 

We're still working hard to keep a little bit of ammunition on the shelves at the warehouse, hopefully, you are stocked up. For those asking, we are getting in new shipments weekly, so if you're looking for anything specific, let me know and I'll keep an eye out. I'm staying optimistic that things in the industry will get back to normal sooner, rather than later. 

Anyway, we've been having some fun recently at the gun range. We've all seen a movie, or TV show, where the bad guy shoots a padlock off to make his escape. We were curious ourselves, so we set out to prove or bust the myth that shooting a padlock will cause the lock to fail. I added the link below if you, or your audience is curious to see if we busted this myth, or just ruined a bunch of padlocks.
