• New York Wants to Force All Gun Owners to Buy a Million Dollar Liability Policy

    New York state is still busily chipping away at gun rights and now they’ve introduced Obamacare for guns. Legislators are hard at work trying to force every gun owner in the state (who isn’t a cop or active military) to purchase and maintain a minimum $1 million liability insurance policy.

    § 2353. FIREARM OWNERS INSURANCE POLICIES. 1. ANY PERSON IN THIS STATE WHO SHALL OWN A FIREARM SHALL, PRIOR TO SUCH OWNERSHIP, OBTAIN AND CONTINUOUSLY MAINTAIN A POLICY OF LIABILITY INSURANCE IN AN AMOUNT NOT LESS THAN ONE MILLION DOLLARS SPECIFICALLY COVERING ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY NEGLIGENT OR WILLFUL ACTS INVOLVING THE USE OF SUCH FIREARM WHILE IT IS OWNED BY SUCH PERSON.

  • Oregon’s SB-978 Gun Control Bill Is So Hysterically Restrictive That PEPPER SPRAY Is a Felony

    Oregon’s SB-978 Gun Control Bill Is So Hysterically Restrictive That PEPPER SPRAY Is a Felony

    A new gun control bill introduced in the Oregon State Legislature added 45 pages of draconian amendments the night before the vote. SB978 passed the Judiciary Committee yesterday and now heads to the Oregon Senate.

    It’s a good thing that some parts of this state have vowed to be 2A sanctuaries because Oregonians are going to need them. If the gun owners – and even pepper spray owners – in other parts of the state hope to defend themselves, they could be facing a vast new array of felony charges.

    The battle for the right to bear arms is rapidly spreading across the country.

  • Every Step You Take, Every Stop You Make: Your Phone Apps Are Tracking You (And Selling That Info)

    Every Step You Take, Every Stop You Make: Your Phone Apps Are Tracking You (And Selling That Info)

    You’re being watched constantly, at least if you have a cell phone with apps on them. A recently published report showed how seemingly innocuous apps were gathering information about how a person goes about their day. They refresh constantly, collecting data about your location.

    These companies are tracking every step you take, every stop you make, and then selling it to the highest bidder.

    Now, before I get the predictable chorus of people telling me they’d never ever use a smartphone and that if they did have one they wouldn’t enable location data on it, I can call BS (baloney sandwiches) on at least 44% of you because…well…Google tells me this.

  • Sweden: Verge Of Cashless Society - What Could Go Wrong?

    Sweden: Verge Of Cashless Society – What Could Go Wrong?

    Sweden is rapidly turning into a cashless society, which seems like the utopian dream of many a government figure. What could possibly go wrong from the government’s point of view? Isn’t it ideal that they could soon digitally control every single person in the country?

    Actually, quite a few things are going wrong. So much so that even members of the government are expressing concern.

    Sweden is the most cashless society in the world

    The change is happening fast in the European country.

    “No cash accepted” signs are becoming an increasingly common sight in shops and eateries across Sweden as payments go digital and mobile…

    …Sweden is widely regarded as the most cashless society on the planet.

  • How to Prepare for Hurricane Florence When You Live a Few Hundred Miles Inland

    How to Prepare for Hurricane Florence When You Live a Few Hundred Miles Inland

    When I moved to southwestern Virginia, I really didn’t expect to be dealing with hurricanes. But, as I’ve just learned, a system like Hurricane Florence could affect places that are as much as 350+ miles from the shore. So, if you are one of the 112 million and then some of Americans in the area classified as the “East Coast” – particularly the southern to mid-Atlantic part – you need to get prepared.

    When and where will Hurricane Florence make landfall?

    Hurricane Florence is picking up power and could make landfall as a Category 5 as soon as Thursday. If you aren’t familiar with hurricanes, a Category 5 hurricane has sustained winds of 156 mph or stronger.

  • “It Could Never Happen Here”: The Most Dangerous Misconception in Survival

    “It Could Never Happen Here”: The Most Dangerous Misconception in Survival

    I’ve noticed a trend that is both interesting and troubling recently. It’s the prevalence of the philosophy of many Americans who adamantly believe, “It could never happen here.” This is probably the most dangerous misconception that exists in the survival world.

    There is an attitude that the troubles of countries like Venezuela or Sweden or Bosnia or Syria are entirely the fault of every single resident of those places and because of this, we, the citizens of the United States of America, are completely immune to such events.

    And that, my friends, is nonsense.

    Sure, we may not have a socialist or communist government here.

  • 3 Times LAST WEEK Women Defended Themselves and Others With a Gun

    3 Times LAST WEEK Women Defended Themselves and Others With a Gun

    I’ve often written about the fact that gun control is every bit as much of a women’s issue as equal pay and maternity leave. Anyone who believes in destroying the 2nd Amendment doesn’t understand what an equalizer a firearm can be. A determined woman with a gun can fend off a number of larger male attackers, sometimes without even firing a shot.

    I know this is true because I have had occasion to protect myself and my daughter with a gun in the past. But if some gun control advocates had their way, all guns would be banned. Every single one.

    Fact-Checking the “Fact-Checkers”: Snopes & Politifact Said I’m a Big Fat Liar, But Let’s Look at THEIR “Facts”

    Editor’s Note:  This is one of tons of just plain bad “fact checking” by these outlets who cover for the Communists in our country.  Politifact botched their assessment of a perfectly good piece by tying it to someone who took the piece and changed the title to something that wasn’t even part of the piece, and then later, so-called “media bias checkers” reported that we were the ones that got a “Pants-on-fire” rating, when it should be obvious to anyone that read the piece and checked the links that the specific article that was used without permission and retitled was the basis for the article.

  • The Rise of Mass Knife Attacks Shows the Problem Isn’t Guns. It’s People.

    In China, where firearms are tightly restricted, it’s probably no surprise that those who want to hurt people found another way to do it. The dramatic rise of knife attacks around the world shows that the problem these days isn’t with guns. It’s with people.

    Mass knife attacks have become so common over the years that a Chinese police department recently released a video to teach citizens how to defend themselves against knife-wielding assailants and it has gone viral, with 16 million views in just a few days. It has subtitles and some great advice. It’s well worth a watch.

    Some folks in the US who want to do away with the Second Amendment are probably saying smugly, “Well, knife attacks are bad, but only people with GUNS can kill dozens of victims quickly.”

    Those folks would be wrong.

  • Sweden Warns Every Single Household to Prep for War

    The government of Sweden has produced a 20-page pamphlet which they’ll be sending to each of the 4.8 million households in the country urging them to get prepared for…WAR.

    Although they haven’t been at war for over 200 years, for some reason, right now, they want their citizens to get prepped – and fast. This goes along with an article I wrote in January of 2018 when the government urged their people to be ready to cope “without help” for at least a week.

    Shortly before Christmas, the Swedish government quietly published a paper called “Resilience.” Initially, the requirement had been for people to be prepared for 3 days without help, but it seems like that was a baby step.

  • When 43% of Americans Can’t Pay for Food and Rent, We Can Safely Say the Economic Collapse Is HERE

    When 43% of Americans Can’t Pay for Food and Rent, We Can Safely Say the Economic Collapse Is HERE

    You know all those reports about how lots of Americans can’t afford a $1000 surprise expense like a medical bill or a car repair? Well, forget additional expenses. It turns out that nearly half of the families in America are struggling to pay for food and rent. And that means that the economic collapse isn’t just “coming.” It’s HERE.

    United Way has done a study on a group of Americans they call ALICE: Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. The study found that this group does not make the money needed “to survive in the modern economy.”

    ALICE is your child care worker, your parent on Social Security, the cashier at your supermarket, the gas attendant, the salesperson at your big box store, your waitress, a home health aide, an office clerk.

  • This Guy Didn’t Wait for the Govt. to Restore Power in Puerto Rico. He Bought a Truck Learned to Do It Himself

    This Guy Didn’t Wait for the Govt. to Restore Power in Puerto Rico. He Bought a Truck Learned to Do It Himself

    While everyone else was waiting for the government to restore power to Puerto Rico, Oscar Carrion and his friends went in together to buy a bucket truck and taught themselves how to repair wiring.

    Thousands of people in Puerto Rico remain in the dark eight months after Hurricane Maria wiped out the island’s already degraded electrical grid. The infrastructure was in such bad condition, some people predicted it could take a year or more to restore the electricity.

    Getting aid to the US territory was delayed by red tape, and millions of residents went without food, fresh water, and shelter.

  • Why the War on Men Is Hurting Everyone

    Why the War on Men Is Hurting Everyone

    These days, it appears that being a man means you’re crazy. You’re a rapist waiting for a woman to rape. You’re a misogynist, just looking for a woman to oppress. You’re a brute, looking for a woman to punch in the face. You are violent, domineering, and angry.

    At least according to the University of Texas at Austin.

    They’ve rolled out a program called MasculinUT that treats men as though they are violent rapists just waiting for a woman on whom to force themselves. And, you know, slap around a little, because apparently, that is what men do. The project praises a poster of a black man with a flower crown, but mourns that masculinity “should go further than that.”

    This makes me curious about what “further than that” would look like.

    The Middle Class Sure Isn’t What It Used to Be

    If you’ve noticed that it takes a lot more money to live the middle-class American Dream than it used to, you aren’t alone. Buying a house, saving for retirement, and putting your kids through college while living comfortably is a whole lot harder than it once was. Being part of the middle class sure isn’t what it used to be.

    Despite the rosy outlook on employment numbers, things have become incredibly difficult for many families. They’re deeply in debt, living paycheck to paycheck, and without an emergency fund. Let’s take a look at what the media is saying about the middle class.

  • The Truth About the “Multicultural” Invasion of Sweden

    The Truth About the “Multicultural” Invasion of Sweden

    Immigration is an issue that causes tempers to flare. Many Americans want our borders to be firmly closed to outsiders, especially if those outsiders are brown. Having lived in and been welcome in another country, and having brought my children to the United States, obviously, I’m pro-immigration.

    But only to a point.

    We had to jump through a lot of expensive hoops to legally be in the countries where we moved. I don’t think that the hoops should be as expensive as they are, but I definitely believe that some requirements must exist. We can’t allow an unchecked influx to upturn our culture.
