Trumps’ Bump-Stocks Ban is a Bigger Danger for 2A than Most Realize

from Ammoland:

Once President Trump is gone, and the next Obama/Clinton/Sanders, etc. holds the reins of the executive branch, there will be no legal barrier to the Attorney General “recognizing” the “danger” of all those “machine guns” in public hands, and criminalizing them with a scratch of a pen.

USA – -( The Second Amendment means what it says, and laws restricting access to, or possession of firearms, ammunition, firearms accessories, knives, swords, nunchaku, billy clubs, black-jacks, or other implements of war or personal defense, violate the fundamental right to arms and the Second Amendment. Any gun is every gun, and any law restricting anything that can be characterized as a personal arm is an assault on all types of arms.

James Comey Admits He Didn’t Tell Trump that Democrats Financed Dossier

from True Pundit:

In Testimony, James Comey Admitted That When He Infamously Briefed Then President-elect Donald Trump About The Controversial Dossier, Comey Did Not Inform The Incoming President About Who Financed The Document.

The detail, contained in a second round of Comey’s testimony released earlier this week, is particularly relevant since the embattled former FBI director admitted in testimony two weeks ago that he was aware the dossier authored by former British spy Christopher Steele was financed by Democrats who opposed Trump.


from SGTreport:

The walls are closing in on the Clintons, and that’s not “fake news”, it’s a fact. Corey Lynn from joins me to discuss the swamp in Arkansas, home of the Clinton crime family – and many deep state criminals who are being investigated, arrested and sentenced to prison terms.

Both Leading Candidates to Replace Mattis are Maximum War Hawks

from Mint Press News:

WASHINGTON — On Thursday, President Donald Trump announced via Twitter that Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis would be “retiring” in February and that a replacement for Mattis would soon be named. Mattis’ departure had been the subject of speculation since late June, when it was reported that Mattis was already being kept out of the loop on major administration decisions such as the unilateral withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, which Mattis had supported keeping intact. Rumors of Mattis’ exit as the Pentagon’s top official were then revived in September when it was reported that Trump was “actively discussing” his replacement.

The Meaning of the Cryptic Messages on The Economist’s “The World in 2019” Cover

from Vigilant Citizen:

A look at the cryptic symbolism found on the cover of the Economist’s “The World in 2019” which includes the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. What are they trying to tell us?

Every December, the reputed magazine The Economist publishes a special edition that predicts the trends and the events of the year to come. And every time, the cover of these editions is an elaborate collection of images referring to various people and concepts. While the meaning of some of these images is obvious, others appear to be coded for “those in the know”. This year’s edition is no exception. In fact, it is more cryptic than ever

Farewell Bread & Circuses! NFL Fans Latest Victims of America’s Politicization of Everything

by Robert Bridge, Strategic Culture:

The National Football League, suffering from dwindling attendance and negative publicity, seems to be mirroring national trends as it is falling victim to political and economic issues instead of concentrating on what it does best: performing for fans on the field of dreams.

Growing up in the post-industrial city of Pittsburgh in the 1970s, at a time when the steel industry was collapsing and the oil crisis was in full swing, was not always a bed of roses.

The Euro-Establishment’s Fear of Populism

by Andrew Spannaus, Consortium News:

Yellow Vests, Italian Budget, Battles & Silent Labor Unions

From the European Union’s standpoint, the historic levels of social unrest confronting French President Emmanuel Macron, one of its leading champions, came at a delicate moment in its dealings with Italy.

Since mid-September, the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, has been battling with Italy over its budget. The populist government in Rome—led by the Five-Star Movement, orM5S, and the League—have decided to stimulate the economy by giving money to the poor, lowering taxes and increasing public investment.

Selco on Gun Confiscation: “Here’s How It Might Actually Go Down”

by Selco, The Organic Prepper:

After reading a couple of articles about magazines/weapon news from New Jersey – actually, after reading a lot of comments from people on that news-  I have the urge to write this article. It is written from the survivalist point of view. There is, of course, the possible danger to get comments like “What the hell do you know Selco? You are not American, shut up!” Because I am going to be “poking” a few sacred cows here.


2018 Year in Review

by David Collum, Peak Prosperity:

Every December, I write a Year in Reviewref 1 that’s first posted on Chris Martenson & Adam Taggart’s website Peak Prosperityref 2 and later at ZeroHedge.ref 3 This is my tenth, although informal versions go back further. It always presents a host of challenging questions like, “Why the hell do I do this?” Is it because I am deeply conflicted for being a misogynist with sexual contempt—both products of the systemic normalization of toxic masculinity perpetuated by an oppressively patriarchal societal structure? No. That’s just crazy talk. More likely, narcissism and need for e-permanence deeply buried in my lizard brain demands surges of dopamine, the neurotransmitter that drives kings to conquer new lands, Jeff Bezos to make even more money, and Harvey Weinstein to do whatever that perv does. The readership has held up so far. Larry Summers said he “finished the first half.” Even as a fib that’s a dopamine cha-ching.

2019: The Year Of Reckoning For Big Tech As State Legislation Proposes $75,000 Fine Per Censored Item For Platforms With 75 Million-Plus Users

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

As Facebook goes into damage control mode after a New York Times investigation revealed that on top of all the data breaches and scandals that have plagued the company over the last year, they also allowed companies such as Netflix and Spotify access to users’ private messages, we note reports that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook lost $19 billion from their 2018 stock slide, as users rate Facebook as the company least trusted with their personal data.

Zuckerpig For Prison

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

So Zucker****er appears to be a perjurer, which means he’s now an accused felon.

He lied to Congress, specifically, telling them repeatedly in testimony that you own your data and have complete control over who it is shared with.

That was a lie.

Specifically, Facebook has been peddling private messages to their “partners.”
