NASA Puts Return To Moon In Crosshairs With Ambitious Timetable – Washington Times

NASA is buzzing with excitement these days about its ambitious new mission to return to the moon – this time to stay. The agency set an aggressive timetable to have the Gateway space station orbiting the moon by 2024, then begin ferrying astronauts from the station to the lunar surface sometime after 2026.

And that is just the beginning. Gateway also will serve as an outpost for deep space science and exploration, including a manned mission to Mars in the 2030s, according to NASA.

The timeline, which some scientists say is overly optimistic, isn’t fast enough for President Trump, who dreams of sending humans on the 33.9-million mile journey to the red planet during his administration.

“We want to try to do it during my first term or at worst during my second term. So we’ll have to speed that up a little bit, OK?” he quipped in a video call last year with NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station…

Indonesian Tsunami Death Toll Reaches 429 – Kyodo News
.

.
The death toll from a tsunami that struck parts of Java and Sumatra over the weekend has reached 429, with 154 others still missing, Indonesia’s disaster management agency said Tuesday, as search area expands to outlying areas cut off by the disaster.

National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said another 1,485 people were injured in Saturday night’s tsunami, caused by a volcanic eruption, that hit coastal areas around the narrow Sunda Strait between the country’s two most populous islands.

“The casualties may keep increasing… because there are some districts that have not been reachable due to damaged roads and collapsed bridges,” Sutopo said, adding the tsunami has displaced 16,082 people and damaged thousands of buildings, including many hotels…

Supreme Court Blocks Mueller Subpoena – News Punch

The Supreme Court has finally taken interest in the Russia witch-hunt and blocked a subpoena issued by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Chief Justice John Roberts stayed a contempt order Sunday night, marking the first time the Supreme Court has intervened in the Mueller inquiry.

Dailycaller.com reports: Very little is known of the case, which reached the justices on Saturday, because the matter has proceeded through the federal courts under seal, meaning strict confidentiality prevails over every detail.

The scant facts which are available about the case are these: a grand jury issued a subpoena to an unnamed company owned by a foreign government some time during the summer of 2018. That firm, referred to in court filings as “the corporation” has been fighting the subpoena in federal court since August.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit released one of the few public filings in the matter on Dec. 18…

President And First Lady Take Calls From Children Tracking Santa On Christmas Eve – WRCB
.

President Donald Trump and the first lady took calls from children calling NORAD about Santa’s whereabouts on Christmas Eve, a service that is still running despite the partial government shutdown.

“Happy Christmas, and you just take care of yourself and say hello to your family,” Trump told one caller at the White House. “Say hello to everybody.”

NORAD, short for North American Aerospace Defense Command, tweeted Friday that it would still track Santa’s flight across the globe as it has done for more than six decades.

The government went into a partial shutdown at midnight on that day, after Congress failed to reach a stopgap funding deal…

2018 Leftist Ideas Most Worthy Of Mockery And Derision – Karen Kataline

It’s time once again for those year-end lists when people rate everything from sports to literature. When it comes to politics and the bizarre notions from today’s Left, there is an embarrassment of riches from which to choose.

Some of these ideas have hung around from the previous year and earlier because they haven’t been mocked and derided successfully by weak and wobbly Republicans.

Since Democrats had no federal legislative power in 2018, it was a banner year for advancing liberal language and cultural concepts. Make no mistake, whenever Democrats work to change our language today, it’s only the first step in their mission to change our policies tomorrow.

Now that they are set to take control of the U.S. House of Representatives, look for them to roll out those policies one after another.

President Trump: Contract Awarded To Build 115 Miles Of Border Wall In Texas – Breitbart

President Donald Trump claims he has awarded a contract to construct 115 miles of border wall in Texas as a partial government shutdown over the U.S.-Mexico border wall extends into Christmas Eve.

“I am in the Oval Office & just gave out a 115-mile long contract for another large section of the Wall in Texas,” President Trump tweeted. “We are already building and renovating many miles of Wall, some complete. Democrats must end Shutdown and finish funding. Billions of Dollars, & lives, will be saved!”

The announcement comes after President Trump met with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and other officials on Monday to discuss border security issues as a partial government shutdown over the U.S.-Mexico border wall entered Christmas without a clear resolution in sight.

Though both sides have traded offers over the dollars, they remain far apart on the wall…

Here Are The Most Egregious Fake News Stories Of 2018 – Daily Caller
.

.
As 2018 comes to a close, it’s time to review the year’s worst cases of media misquotes, misleading narratives, major corrections and straight-up fake news.

While last year’s fake reporting largely occurred during the media’s relentless pursuit to prove Russian collusion, this year’s list is much more varied. However, some themes emerged: stories about then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the U.S. border were routinely flagged for misinformation.

Without further ado, here is the list of 2018’s worst examples of fake news:

Helicopter Crash Kills Mexican Governor Martha Erika Alonso And Her Husband – Daily Wire

On Monday, Martha Erika Alonso, the first female governor in the history of the Mexican state of Puebla, was killed in a helicopter crash along with her husband, Rafael Moreno Valle Rosas, who had been the governor between 2011 amd 2017..

The Washington Post reported, “The Agusta 109 helicopter fell about 10 minutes after taking off from a heliport within the city of Puebla on a flight to Mexico City.

It crashed in the municipality of Santa Maria Coronango, which is about 3.5 miles (5.5 kilometers) north of the city’s main airport on the western outskirts, federal Public Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo told a news conference.”

If you can’t find a job right now, you might not be looking hard enough.

The U.S. economy is running so hot that businesses cannot find people to fill their want ads. The 7.1 million openings recorded at the end of October easily topped the 6 million people the Labor Department said were unemployed and actively seeking jobs at that point.

And contrary to some claims, it’s not a list of low-paying unappealing jobs.

Michigan Women Accused Of Shoplifting At Target’s ‘Shop With A Cop’ Event – Breitbart

Two Michigan women who allegedly tried to shoplift from a Target store packed with police officers for the store’s “Shop with a Cop” event on Wednesday found themselves on the wrong side of the law.

Authorities arrested Keiana Wilson, 40, of Burton, and Dana Johnson, 18, of Flint, and charged them with felony retail fraud for allegedly attempting to steal $1,900 in electronic goods from a Bloomfield Township Target store.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Bloomfield Township Police Sgt. Dan Brown said.

Several area police departments – including the police departments of Bloomfield Township, Sylvan Lake, Keego Harbor, and Orchard Lake – hosted a “Shop with a Cop” event at the store Wednesday evening to help disadvantaged children shop for family members.

But not everyone at the store was taking part in the festivities. Store security officers spotted Wilson and Johnson allegedly loading a cart filled with $1,900 worth of electronic goods…

Socialist Fed Chief Jerome Powell Trying To Single-Handedly Destroy The U.S. Economy – Evans News Report

As President Trump has seen economic success after economic success, the Progressive-Socialists have tried everything to unseat him, by any means necessary. As they saw failure after failure, the Global Kabal has found a new weapon;THE FEDERAL RESERVE!

In fact, the evidence is now showing that they have employed Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell to use his vast financial power over the interest rates to ultimately sink the Trump economy.

After all, the Trump economy not only was booming, but it was on fire, as the US stock markets set numerous records, consumer confidence was skyrocketing, spending was up, and all despite the fact that the Mainstream Media went on the air painting a dismal picture of Trump economic policies and buried the astonishing successes…

‘Child Of Krakatoa’: ‘Volcano’ Tsunami Kills At Least 62 In Indonesia, Nearly 600 Injured – Breitbart

At least 62 people have been killed and nearly 600 injured in a tsunami in Indonesia that may have been caused by a volcano known as the “child” of the legendary Krakatoa, officials said Sunday.

Hundreds of buildings were destroyed by the wave, which hit beaches without warning in South Sumatra and the western tip of Java about 9.30 pm local time (1430 GMT) on Saturday, national disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said in a statement.

At least 43 people died and 584 people were injured across three regions.

Authorities say the tsunami may have been triggered by an abnormal tidal surge due to a new moon and an underwater landslide following the eruption of Anak Krakatoa, which forms a small island in the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra.

“The combination caused a sudden tsunami that hit the coast,” Nugroho said, but added that Indonesia’s geological agency was working to ascertain exactly how it happened…

Octogenarian Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Undergoes Lung Surgery To Remove Cancerous Growth – CNBC

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, underwent surgery Friday to remove two malignant nodules from her left lung, the Supreme Court said.

It said she was “resting comfortably” after the surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and there was no evidence of any remaining disease.

“Currently, no further treatment is planned,” the court said in a statement.

Ginsburg, the eldest member of the court and the senior justice of its liberal wing, underwent a pulmonary lobectomy. Two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung were discovered incidentally during tests she received while being treated for rib fractures sustained in a fall last month.

Obamacare-Loving Chief Justice Roberts Sides With Left-Wing Activists On Supreme Court, Strikes Down Trump’s Asylum Policy – Daily Wire

On Friday, Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the four liberal justices of the Supreme Court once again as they ruled against the Trump administration’s request for permission to immediately deny asylum to illegal immigrants.

In the case, titled Trump v. East Bay Sanctuary, Clarence Thomas, Samuel A. Alito Jr., Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh voted for the Trump administration; Roberts joined justices Steven Breyer, Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor to deny the Trump administration’s request.

Initially, Judge Jon S. Tigar of the United States District Court in San Francisco issued a temporary restraining order blocking Trump’s initiative nationwide. That prompted Trump, noting that Tigar had been appointed by former President Barack Obama, to blast Tigar as an “Obama judge.” Chief Justice Roberts then fired at Trump:

Trump Is Right To Withdraw From Syria – Robert Spencer

President Trump has ordered a rapid withdrawal of the 2,000 remaining U.S. troops in Syria, prompting the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis and arousing the ire of CNN – both excellent indications that the President is on the right track.

CNN, the 24/7 Hate Trump Network, headlined its story on the withdrawal “Trump orders rapid withdrawal from Syria in apparent reversal,” giving the impression that an erratic Trump was changing course, only to admit in the article itself that the President “has long signaled his desire to get out of Syria.”

Meanwhile, in his self-righteous and condescending resignation letter, which is being heralded by all the usual establishment suspects today as a positively Confucian outpouring of wisdom, even Mattis admits that he agrees with Trump on the salient issue at play in Syria…

Mexico Agrees To Hold Asylum Seekers While U.S. Immigration Courts Consider Their Claims – WorldNetDaily

In a significant policy move addressing the problem of “catch and release,” Mexico has agreed to require Central Americans seeking asylum at the U.S. border to remain in Mexico while their cases move through immigration courts.

“They will not be able to disappear into the United States,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told the House Judiciary Committee regarding asylum seekers. “They will have to wait for approval. If they are granted asylum by a U.S. judge, they will be welcomed into America. If they are not, they will be removed to their home countries.”

The policy does not apply to children traveling alone or to Mexican asylum seekers.

The Associated Press noted the announcement came two days after the U.S. pledged $10.6 billion in aid for Central America and southern Mexico.

Opponents of the policy, who contend migrants would be unsafe in some Mexican border towns, hint they will challenge the policy in court, the AP said…

Man Accused Of Sexually Abusing 13-Year-Old Walks Free After Prosecutor Shows Up To Court Drunk – KIMT

An Iowa man accused of sexual abuse of a 13-year-old has been freed after county attorney Michelle Murphy Rivera was arrested for being drunk in court.

A judge in Clarke County dismissed the case, saying the defendant didn’t get a trial within a year of his arrest – as mandated by Iowa’s right to speedy trial law.

“The county attorney’s unavailability at the last hearing was the finale following unexplained periods of inactivity and lack of responsiveness that prevented disposition of this case within one year,” Iowa District Court Judge Martha L. Mertz wrote this week in her order to release the defendant.

A timeline included in the judge’s response indicates that Rivera was slow to get back to the defense team on several occasions. Three months ago, after getting an email from the defense about the status of a plea agreement proposal, Rivera responds saying she thought she was waiting on something from the defendant and that there is no trial date scheduled…

Man Busted For Setting Houston Mosque Fire On Christmas Day Is A Devout Muslim

Man Charged With Setting Houston Mosque Fire Was A Devout Attendee – Houston Chronicle

.
……………………………

.
A Houston man has been arrested in connection with a suspected arson at a mosque on Christmas Day.

A spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed that the man was arrested early Wednesday, sometime after midnight, and appeared in court 7 a.m. Wednesday.

The suspect, Gary Nathaniel Moore, 37, of Houston, appeared in court at 7 a.m., spokeswoman Nicole Strong said.

According to a charging instrument released by the Harris County District Clerk, Moore told investigators at the scene that he has attended the mosque for five years, coming five times per day to pray seven days per week.

Moore told investigators he had been at the mosque earlier on Dec. 25 to pray, and had left at about 2 p.m. to go home. Moore told investigators he was the last person to leave the mosque and saw no smoke or other signs of fire when he left. He had returned to the scene after hearing about the fire from a friend.

Though the suspect said he was a regular at the mosque, MJ Khan, president of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, which operates the mosque, said he was unfamiliar with Moore. “We are just looking into it ourselves,” he said Wednesday morning after learning of the arrest.

“We are really very surprised and saddened by this whole thing,” said Khan.

Using surveillance video from multiple businesses nearby, investigators were able to identify Moore, according to records. A search warrant of his home was conducted, in which investigators recovered a backpack and clothing that seemingly matched that which was seen in surveillance footage, as well as one half of a two-pack of charcoal lighter fluid bottles that seemed to match another lighter fluid bottle found inside the mosque.

Bond for Moore has been set at $100,000.

It took about 80 firefighters to put out the two-alarm blaze at the storefront mosque in Savoy Plaza, near Wilcrest Drive and West Bellfort.

Watching Jeb Bush Flop Best Possible Christmas Gift (Howie Carr)

Watching Jeb Bush Flop Best Possible Christmas Gift – Howie Carr

.

.
All I want for Christmas is Jeb Bush to not drop out of the race.

It’s been so much fun watching the spoiled little rich kid stumbling around the country, gut shot, spending record sums of money to drop further and further behind in every poll in every state, whining about this or that and all the “really cool things” he could be doing if he just didn’t have to run for president.

Juan Ellis Bush makes everybody feel good about themselves. If your last name is Hearst and you own Ch. 9 in Manchester – how much has he squandered so far on your TV station, $10 million, $12 million? And the primary is still almost seven weeks away!

For every million bucks the Bush super PAC spends, he drops another 1 percent in the polls. It’s like clockwork. Juan’s political action committee is called “Right to Rise.” It should be renamed, “Free to Fall.”

But TV stations aren’t the only businesses padding their bottom lines with Richie Rich’s billionaire bucks. If you own a restaurant in New Hampshire – the Bush people tell you they’ll need a buffet for 200 people, but you know you only have to lay out food for 20, or maybe only 5 if Donald Trump is anywhere within two counties.

If you’re feeling sorry for yourself, just watch one of Jeb’s 30-second spots. He’s got the support of “27 admirals and generals.” Wow! Now he’s walking the factory floor wearing his white coat, barking out orders and looking important – who hasn’t run into Daddy’s Little Boy pretending to be a big shot, yelling at the hired hands?

And now this Daddy’s Little Boy is getting his comeuppance.

One of last month’s campaign slogans was “Jeb Can Fix It.” Remember that one? It lasted about a week. Fix it? Fix what exactly? Apparently that was another old saying Juan Ellis Bush forgot: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Plus, should anyone named Bush ever use the word “fix?” Do you really want to remind everyone of the perception that the Bush family once “fixed” an election, in Florida?

Now he calls Donald Trump a “jerk.” Huh? Again, he’s breaking more basic rules of politics – first, never mention your opponent by name unless he attacks you. And second, never get into a you-know-what match with a skunk, because it doesn’t matter who started it, the only thing the viewers at home will remember is two you-know-whats yelling at each other.

Then there was the time he said you have to lose the primaries to win the general election. It made no sense. So now he says he “hated” being the front-runner.

“I feel so much better back here,” Bush said, from way back in fifth, or sixth, or seventh place, depending on which state you’re talking about.

Last weekend, Juan vowed to stay in the fight to New Hampshire and beyond.

“I want to show who I am,” he said on CBS.

Don’t worry, Juan, you already have. But remember, you have to lose the primaries first. And we’ll be there for you. We share your ambition. We want you to lose.

It is time to ban Ceramic Squirrels

If it  just stops one stabbing

A North Charleston woman is in jail after police say she stabbed her husband with a ceramic squirrel.

According to the police report, Helen Ann Williams attacked her husband on Christmas Day after he failed to bring beer back to the house.

Police said they were dispatched to the home and found the victim with a large amount of blood on his face.

When police asked Williams what happened to her husband, she first said that he fell and cut himself, but then told officers more.

Williams said her common-law spouse went to a store to find beer, but they store was closed. When he returned home and began making a sandwich, Williams allegedly took a ceramic squirrel and stabbed him in his shoulder and chest.

If not for the easily accessible ceramic squirrels, which do not even require a background check, this domestic spat would have ended without bloodshed. How is that for Liberal logic?

 

The Left prefers emotions to facts

Case in point is this mockery of a manger scene in Claremont, California

The story, from Claremont, California:

Nativity scenes have a few standard elements: a manger, swaddling clothes, happy parents, sheep, maybe the Three Wise Men. They don’t generally include Trayvon Martin.

But there he is, wearing a hoodie, a stream of blood pouring from his chest onto the straw-covered floor of the scene outside Claremont United Methodist Church, the holy family around him.

What does the birth of Jesus Christ have to do with a hoodlum getting himself shot while trying to bash out the brains of a community watch captain against the sidewalk?

For one thing, the backdrop to the Christmas story is the slaughter by King Herod of all infants in Bethlehem, a barbarous attempt to kill the Messiah.

Rather than tidings of comfort and joy, that time of year would have seen “other parents in agony because their children had just been killed,” a plaque explains.

The Martyrdom of Saint Skittles was traumatic for the artist.

“What if Jesus was lying there bleeding to death? I was kind of thinking of that,” Zachary said.

It is easy to just chalk this up to Liberal stupidity, but there is something deeper at work here. When the Trayvon Martin case caught national attention the Left falsely portrayed in the light they wanted to portray it in. Martin was an innocent Black kid just trying to get home. He was racially profiled, hunted down, and killed in cold blood by a crazy, gun-totin’ racist White man. Of course the left got all of those “facts” wrong but yet they continued to peddle their lies as facts. Still today, they stick to their assumptions even though they are demonstrably untrue. And, in 10, or 20 years, Leftists will still be telling their version of the Trayvon Martin case.

Why are they so backasswards? They KNOW they are lying, but they still continue. For the usual suspects like Al Sharpton, Je$$e Jackson, the NAACP, and the MSNBS gang the reason is simple. They perpetuate such fallacies to sell books, get ratings, get donations, or to help Left-Wing candidates win elections etc.. But what of the folks who are not on TV, or radio, or running for office? Why do they continue to not only believe false narratives, but to absolutely CRAVE such narratives to be true? Do they enjoy seeing themselves as perpetual victims? Do they prefer to believe that America is so deeply flawed that racism will never go away? Apparently so. It is tragic that so many Liberals, given the choice between facts, and emotionalistic talking points based in lies, will flock to the false, emotionalistic narratives.

Liberalism is, after all an ideology for pessimists who want to be victims more than they want to be honest.

 

Hey kids, who is ready for some Liberal Tolerance?

Oh no! That rascally South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley, who dares to be a Conservative even though she is both a woman and a minority got a VERY politically incorrect Christmas gift. What will Liberals on Twitter do? Embrace Haley, and actually be tolerant? Or launch violent, hateful tweets at the governor?

What do you think?

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley received a brand new Beretta PX4 Storm pistol for Christmas. While she was extremely happy with the gift, liberals predictably responded with hateful messages, including wishes she would kill herself with it, Twitchyreported Friday.

“Our family had a wonderful Christmas together! I must have been good Santa gave me a Beretta PX4 Storm,” shetweeted.

“Please God, use it on yourself. Like before New Years,” one person said in response.

“I hope you don’t accidentally shoot someone in your family with it. Actually, I don’t really care either way,” another person said.

Yet another person falsely claimed Haley was somehow promoting murder by posting a picture of the pistol.

“I know where she should stick it,” one person exclaimed.

Some refused to understand why Haley would want or need a gun.

“No clue as to why our governor needs a handgun,” tweeted “Katie Thompson.”

Setting aside for a moment the fact that the Constitution allows for the private ownership of guns, Haley was the target of a parent volunteer who was arrested earlier in December for threatening to kill the Republican governor.

 

The Radical Left’s Appetite for Power is never Satisfied

Donald Douglas looks at the case of the Mt. Soledad Cross and the Atheist whiners who hate it

At Michelle Malkin’s, “Cruciphobia at Mt. Soledad“:

Consider this: Taylor Swift wasn’t even born yet when the fight over the Mount Soledad cross began. How much longer will it drag on? Disgruntled atheists first filed suit over the memorial at a veterans park in San Diego in the summer of 1989. The fringe grievance-mongers have clung bitterly to their litigious activities for nearly a quarter-century. It’s time to let go and bring peace to the city.

The historic 43-foot cross (29 feet tall on a 14-foot base) has stood atop Mount Soledad on public land since 1954. The Mount Soledad Memorial Association erected the monument to commemorate the sacrifice of American soldiers who died in the Korean War, World War I and World War II. The cross has long carried meaning for the city’s residents far beyond religious symbolism. “It’s a symbol of coming of age and of remembrance,” Pastor Mark Slomka of the Mount Soledad Presbyterian Church said years ago when the case erupted. The San Diego Union-Tribune editorial board explained that the cross is “much like the Mission San Diego de Alcala and the cross at Presidio Park, both of which also are rooted in Christianity but have come to signify the birth of San Diego.” I first started covering the case as an editorial writer at the Los Angeles Daily News in the early 1990s. A federal judge initially ruled that the landmark cross’s presence violated the California constitution’s church-state separation principles. The city of San Diego put the issue before voters, who overwhelmingly approved a practical solution in 2005: Sell the cross and the park to the veterans group for use in a national war memorial.

A pragmatic, tolerant resolution with 76 percent of voters’ support? Heavens, no! The extreme secularists couldn’t have that. They sued and sued and sued and sued. By 2007, the state Supreme Court — affirmed by a state appellate court — had rejected the atheists’ campaign. The courts affirmed the constitutionality of the San Diego referendum (Proposition A) and the sale of the cross to the Mount Soledad Memorial Association. The American Civil Liberties Union intervened to suppress and “de-publish” the ruling as a way to prevent its use in future litigation. They lost.

Lawyers for the Thomas More Law Center, which represented filed a friend of the court brief on behalf of the memorial association, were relieved: “This decision protects the will of the people and their desire to preserve a historical veterans memorial for future generations.” They’ve fought hard to remind America that the Founding Fathers fought for freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. [Correction: The memorial association is represented by the Liberty Institute. More info here.]

But still the cross-hunters press on. Fast-forward to Christmas week 2013. U.S. District Court Judge Larry Burns, who earlier had ruled in support of the cross, was forced to rule that it must come down in 90 days in the wake of a liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision overturning his prior decision. In anticipation of new appeals, Burns stayed the order. All eyes are on the U.S. Supreme Court, which refused to hear the case last summer…

Pathetic! The fact that these intolerant bastards were not sated when the land was sold to a private owner exposes their true agenda. That agenda is to erase every last vestige of Christianity from public view. This is not about “church and  state”, it is about a hatred for everything that is part of traditional American culture. If there was ever a story that proves my belief that we can never appease the far-left this is it. The Leftists are absolutely committed to their crusade to eradicate everything that defines America.We must be equally committed to stopping their campaign of cultural genocide.

Lots of folks ask why radical atheists are so hateful and intolerant towards Christianity. Well, the narcissism of the left plays into it, as does their need to control but, to me the answer is this. America recognizes the right not to be religious. You hold a right here not to believe in God. Atheists ought to be fine with that. But, a hatred burns in them for any mention of God, Christmas, Santa Claus, anything even remotely Christian, why? Well imagine being an Atheist in a country where you are free to believe your way. Now imagine that you know, where that right comes from. No, not from our Constitution. That document protects that right, but recognizes that such a right already exists. And the source for that right? Well, according to our Founders, that right is a natural right, and where do natural rights come from? Yes, from our Creator. So, imagine being a radical atheist who knows that their right NOT to be religious comes from the one thing they most despise, God.

 

Christmas Day Riot Ensues In Jacksonville After 600 Likely Obama Supporters Try to Storm Theater (Video)

Christmas Day Thug Riot In Jacksonville Florida After 600 Black Youths Try to Storm Movie Theater… The Cinema Was Showing “Tyler Perry’s A Medea Christmas” – Conservative Treehouse

Jacksonville, FL – Via Yahoo – Five teenagers were arrested when a 600-person brawl broke out in a Florida movie theater’s parking lot on Christmas night.

.

.
Described by police as a “melee,” the fight occurred around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday outside the Hollywood River City 14 movie theater in Jacksonville when a group tried to storm the theater’s doors without purchasing tickets, police said. Several had rushed an off-duty police officer working as a security guard.

The officer “administered pepper spray to disperse the group, locked the doors and called for backup, following protocol,” said Lauri-Ellen Smith, a spokeswoman for the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Soon after the pepper spray was used, “upward of 600 people moving throughout a parking lot about the size of a football field began fighting, disrupting and jumping on cars,” she said.

Sixty-two police officers were called to the scene to break up the brawl, “sequestering them and separating them,” Smith said.

[…] Tevyn Alonza Davis, 19, was charged with resisting arrest and breach of the peace. Jaquade Marquis Miller, 18, was charged with fighting and resisting arrest. Khalil Ahmad Bradley, 17, the only minor charged with a felony, was arrested for resisting arrest, refusal to disperse and breach of the peace. (continue reading)

Son of Cedar Hill Mayor killed while committing invasion

Cedar Hill, Texas that is. It is about 15 minutes from my home, I go there all the time. Bearing Arms has details

The estranged adult son of Mayor Rob Franke of Cedar Hills, Texas was just shot to death Christmas Eve while committing a home invasion:

A Cedar Hill homeowner fatally shot an intruder who broke into his home shortly before midnight Christmas Eve, authorities say.

Joshua Slaven, 31, was pronounced dead at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Dallas County medical examiner.

The city of Cedar Hill’s website identifies Slaven as the son of Mayor Rob Franke.

The homeowner, Gareth Long, was questioned by police but not arrested. The standard practice is to refer such cases to a grand jury, which is likely to decline to indict Long under the state’s castle doctrine.

“It’s very unfortunate that Mr. Long was forced into a position of having to defend himself, his wife and his home from a nighttime intruder,” said Chris Knox, Long’s attorney. “Nobody ever asks to be placed in such a life-threatening position, but Mr. Long’s actions were absolutely justified and completely protected under Texas law.”

The story is tragic for Mr. Long who apparently gave Slaven multiple warnings before finally firing to defend his family.

Another case of self-defense. How would it have ended if the gun control nuts had their way?

Your Range Report for a Christmas Eve

What to do on Christmas Eve?  Well, like millions of others I had to do some final shopping, so I did hit Wal Mart, which was not as crowded as I thought it might be, except for the toy department, which, or course, is where I needed to shop. Anyway, before the shopping, I decided to take an opportunity to visit the gun range, and I am glad I did. I decided to shoot the usual 100 rounds with my Sig p250, and shot further than the last time, when I went between 7-11 yards. I spread my shots from 9-15 yards, with over half from 12 yards or beyond, except for my last magazine, which I just fired as rapidly as I could from about 6 yards. Anyway, like last week, I went for as much speed as possible, gun up, on target, fire. I am really used to the double action trigger now, I have the reset point down, and it showed in my shooting. 

Out of 100 rounds, I had 96 in the 8-10, not quite as good as my 98 out of 100 last time, but I put 87 of those in the 9-10 rings, better than last trip’s 75, and I had about 40 of those in the 10 circle, it is hard to tell exactly since a good portion of the 10 ring was gone. So, overall my best day of shooting. I was darned proud of myself. Then I came home and watched this guy, Max Michel  who captains the Sig Sauer shooting team

At age 31, Max Michel is a legend within the world of competitive shooting. A three-time World Speed Shooting Champion, six-time USPSA National Champion, and three-time US National Steel Champion, Max is a dominant force in pistol shooting sports. Born and raised in New Orleans, LA Max began shooting when he was just 5 years old. In 1999 Max joined the famed USAMU’s Action Pistol Team and served in the U.S. Army for 10 years as an Army shooter and trainer. Max is also the current captain of the Team SIG SAUER shooting team. Today, Max is recognized worldwide as a top tier athlete and instructor.

18 shots, and two reloads in under 5 seconds? DAMN! 

Here is the best advice for a new shooter

 

Terminally Ill Girl Gets Christmas Wish As Thousands Gather To Sing Carols Outside Her Home (Video)

Dying 8yo Delaney Brown Gets Christmas Carol Wish As Thousands Gather Outside Her Pennsylvania Home –

Thousands of Christmas carollers have gathered to sing outside the home of a terminally ill American girl.

.

.
The singers fulfilled one of 8-year-old Delaney Brown’s wishes: a huge holiday sing-along outside her home in West Reading, Pennsylvania.

Delaney was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukaemia in May. Supporters have been trying to fulfil a number of her wishes.

She also video chatted with singer Taylor Swift on her 8th birthday a few days ago.

The mayor of West Reading came out to support the young girl and her family.

“With her birthday yesterday and Christmas coming next week, I just can’t even fathom what [the family is] going through,” he said.

Many people held back tears.

“All she wants is carols? We can do that,” caroller Meghan McGee said.

Another caroller, Melanie Searfoss, just wanted to show her support.

“To put her mark on the world as she did in these eight years, especially the last year of her life. I think it’s something that should make her family very proud,” she said.

A social media page was set up to support Delaney and her family. It has attracted more than 45,000 followers.

Her family confirmed earlier this week that doctors have given Delaney only days to live.

Delaney’s parents issued a statement thanking the public for their support and asking for privacy in the difficult days ahead.
