I need new shoes

I hate finding shoes.

Can't get the same ones I currently have, because the New Models are in.  And (running shoes) damn near EVERYTHING is neon colors or baby-puke green or something.  And the cost of some of the things...

Back to a question I asked before: considering a minimalist running shoe has no fancy padding, no fancy ANYTHING, how the hell are these bastards asking a hundred bucks for them?

Hopefully, these will stay together until I find something suitable as a replacement that doesn't cost as if it were made of first-class leather.

It's wet and cold out there,

which isn't a shock for the end of January.  And it's coming down wet instead of either white or freezing, so that's a win.  Still, good circumstances for more data study.

























Like most everyone else who carries,

I've got a bag of holsters.  And I had something reinforced a few days back about them:

It being a quite warm day for this time of year, I used an old Fobus paddle holster to carry to the outdoor range.*  And when I went over to the pistol side for a bit, I tried a bit of draw & fire.

Well, it wasn't good.  I've been using a IWB holster for all my belt-carry for years, and that's what I'm used to drawing from.  The little bit of further out and not-as-solid difference made drawing clumsy.  And slower.  And a bit scary.  NOT confidence-inspiring at all.  So back to the IWB, at least until I can save up and get one of Michaels' rigs for OWB, something that'll keep it in tight as I'm used to.


*Shut up; long-ago purchase.  And it was handy at times

From (formerly Great)Britain; that'll have the bastards shaking in their boots,

I tell you!
Leaders of the Police Federation, which represents rank-and-file officers, will vote next month on a proposal that every uniformed frontline officer should be offered training in the use of Tasers, though some may choose not to carry them.
Yeah, that'll stop a couple of jihadi-minded assholes with knives or guns, you bet.

But wait! It gets better!
Some senior officers are believed to support the idea in theory, but one police leader said chief constables would be mostly opposed.

The police chief, speaking anonymously, told the Guardian: ‘The idea of arming every police officer with a Taser is alien to 200 years of police culture. It is a stepping stone to arming the police – something strapped to your hip that looks like a firearm is a huge shift in what we stand for.’
I'll leave this to you, I don't really want to contemplate it further at the moment.


I haven't read this whole piece yet, but this bit

sounds just like the fake gang-rape story:
“Political correctness, speech codes, hate-crime hoaxes: these are all efforts by a very small number of people to control what is said and how it is said,” Goldberg explains. “I don’t think any women’s studies professors are looking to Mussolini or Georges Sorel for inspiration. But what they are doing is trying to manufacture crises that give them more authority and power.


Translation from FDIC: "The heat is on, and we don't like it, so ease off."    Of course, the heat wouldn't be on if these bastards hadn't started this crap.


Yes, the chickenshits must be very careful with that word 'terrorist', it might upset someone.

Of course, some of them aren't chickenshits; they're actually on the other side.








Let's start demanding zero tolerance for LE going to the wrong damned address

And when they bitch and whine that people shouldn't complain about having their lives threatened, add to the damage awards.

Deputy U.S. Marshall Matt Wiggins, you're an arrogant fool.  You could well have murdered an innocent; and if she'd shot you(as you deserved), she'd have been charged with a crime, because of your screwing up.

How about this: You raid the wrong address, or lie to get a warrant, or DON'T HAVE A WARRANT as in this case, qualified immunity is gone; damages come out of YOUR pocket, and you actually get prosecuted for the lie.  That'd be a start.

It's late, and I'm beat.

Here's data.





























And a little more range report

After Tuesday, put a few more loads together and today- since needed to go that way anyway- tried them out at the indoor range.  This is all 30 yards, off a so-so rest(for me, anyway).  With both rifles, set the rear sight for 400(meters for the MN, yards for the Springfield).

First up, 7.62x54r using the .32 SWC bullet over 9.0 Unique
I'm blaming myself for that lateral spread.  I'll load a few more to try again next chance I get. 

Next, from a 1903-A3, same bullet and propellant charge
Which is fairly awful.  That's with the bullet seated all the way down to the crimp groove, same as you would for a revolver cartridge.  Now, I had four primed cases left after I loaded stuff, so just to try it I loaded them with the same charge, but with the bullet only seated far enough to have the case mouth even with the lube groove.  Illustration thereof
the case mouth is even with that groove, while a bit above(1/10" by my caliper) is the crimp groove.  This leaves not much of the bullet in the case, but I just wanted to see if that distance made any difference.  Well,
either it does or I royally messed-up my aiming on the first set.

Using a lube groove as the crimp groove has been a common thing with cast bullets, and with some rifles it can make a real difference in accuracy with a particular bullet.  I need to try this again to find out for certain, seating depth or me.

With all the above, I crimped just enough to smooth out the case mouth where it had been belled to allow the bullets easy entry.  On the .30-30 ammo I tried the other day, had a bit more than that; with tube magazines you need enough to prevent recoil and spring tension from forcing the bullet further into the case.  I was single loading that day, need to try feeding those through the magazine to see how they do.  On the plated bullets and 2400 loads, I used a light crimp(I know, that's hard to define); just enough to force the case mouth slightly into the plating.  Considering how little recoil there is, on the box magazine rifles I could likely just iron out the bell and be fine.

The MN doesn't like to feed the SWC loads from the magazine at times, they'd hang up on the chamber mouth.  The 03-A3, the slipped right in. 

Last, I have .30-06 using the X-Treme plated 123-grain 7.62 bullet over 15.0 of 2400

Quite promising.

With all these, especially the Unique loads, recoil was almost not there, and the noise was low.  After I finished the SWC loads, a guy wandered over and asked what I was shooting, a .30-06 with that little noise caught his attention.

Makes me wonder just how low you could go on powder(and noise) with the SWC loads.  Might screw with that a bit later on.  Only if I have a range rod with me in case one can't make it out of the barrel.











First they trash doctor-patient confidentiality,

for Public Good/Safety, now they want you to consider any mental-health professional the enemy.  Good going, idiots!

You get the feeling these bastards think the Soviet model is one to follow: "So, comrade, you do not have the proper attitude toward government and Party?  You obviously have a mental problem, you will go with the good doctor.  Or else."




Maybe coming soon to a ATM near you!

ATM machines are vulnerable because the strongbox inside an ATM has two essential holes: a small slot in front that spits out bills to customers and a big door in back through which employees load reams of cash in large cassettes. "Criminals have learned to see this simple enclosure as a physics problem," writes Summers. "Gas is pumped in, and when it's detonated, the weakest part—the large hinged door—is forced open. After an ATM blast, thieves force their way into the bank itself, where the now gaping rear of the cash machine is either exposed in the lobby or inside a trivially secured room. Set off with skill, the shock wave leaves the money neatly stacked, sometimes with a whiff of the distinctive acetylene odor of garlic."
So if you hear a 'thump' coming from the convenience store down the street, it might not be what you first thought.


I used to know someone who got seriously bent out of shape when I mentioned Democrats and Occupy marching with commies; those side-by-side banners and signs at marches meant NOTHING, do you hear?  I'm sure there'd be some similar 'Means nothing!' dismissal of this.

Because commies and Dems working together doesn't mean Dems have anything to do with Communists, oh no!


Because a rich celebrity getting “up to £1,000 a day” of benefits out of the public purse is the same as a destitute single mom asking for help.  Therefore the parasite celebrity has to be allowed this largesse and defended.

First think I want to know: why aren't the morons responsible for this

displaying their new tar and feathers adornment?
This is freaking TEXAS, and all they've got is
The Gustine School District Superintendent Ken Baugh has stated that an investigation is underway. He has acknowledged that the action was inappropriate and “went too far,” but also told reporters that children were asked to lower their pants “only a little.”
I predict the school board meeting will get loud.  Damn well should.


Speaking of idiots...
You see, by being a stay at home parent, you are a recipient of government benevolence because your “labor” is not taxed. Funny. We were always under the impression that it was income that was taxed, not labor. But the moonbats are actually arguing that by performing labor without income, you are technically stealing—or at least receiving benefits—from the government. Your labor is not your own.
If you risk brain cells by going to The Nation,  you'll find that it's unfair to tell women on welfare "Have more kids, no more money."  Because welfare clowns getting more money for more kids is just like working families with a stay-at-home parent getting a tax break.


An opinion on another reason so much of the left hates American Sniper:
But could there be more to this rabid vitriol than "just" hostility toward America's fighting men and women? Seattle Gun Rights Examiner Dave Workman speculates that the movie, in which rifles not far removed from what millions of American hunters take into the woods every year are used to kill the enemy from 1,000 or more yards away, could be just what the gun ban zealots think they need to help them push a ban of popular hunting rifles, as "too dangerous" for civilians.

Actually, that wouldn't be a new development, with the Violence Policy Center having espoused such bans on what they call "intermediate sniper rifles" (to distinguish them from "heavy sniper rifles"--mostly firing the .50 BMG cartridge) since 2001. If that effort ever comes to fruition, does anyone seriously believe they'll not eventually find their way to warning us of the dangers of private citizens' access to "light sniper rifles"?
And let's not forget that the idiots don't like private citizens having guns that are too accurate.  Or being 'too skilled' in using them.

Why don't people trust the government, some agencies in particular?

Well, to start with, because they're full of crooked bastards like these.
Also contained in the narrative is the judge’s unequivocal opinion that Dobyns was not only clearly exonerated for the fire that destroyed his home – a smear intended to cast his character and motives into doubt – but that ATF officials knew he was innocent, and behaved in a manner that was “reprehensible” and actually “compounded the potential harm that might have befallen the Dobyns family." And testimony presented later in the opinion further revealed that reopening the arson case was discouraged by ATF’s Chief Counsel’s Office because it “would damage [the] civil case.”

Further reading confirms copies of the judgment were served to Attorney General Eric Holder, as well as to the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility and the Office of Inspector General. Leaving the door open for further action, the opinion noted pending a final response from DOJ, “the court will reserve the question whether one or more of defendant’s attorneys acted in violation of the court’s rules and should be disciplined thereunder."
I'll believe it when he actually goes after the lying lawyers of DoJ, but it would be a real step forward for Truth, Justice and the American Way.


And there's this piece of work who never should've been working at DHS in the first place.  But we're supposed to trust DHS.


Why I despise these people so much:
On December 15 Breitbart News reported McAuliffe’s gun control proposals not only included limits on how often a gun could be purchased and a closure of the so-called “gun show loophole,” but new limits on the way gun show venders could advertise their products. The controls also would have allowed the state to revoke concealed carry permits for persons who were delinquent on child support.
Have any idea how many ways someone can wind up being declared 'delinquent on child support'?  They want any way possible to screw with as many people as possible, and they'll use ANYTHING they think will yank on peoples feelings to do it.













A warning from the events in Europe

Did you see the news last week about the terrorist cell operating in Belgium? They were preparing a terrorist attack in that country and were arrested just a few hours before the start of their attack. How were they going to do it? They had Belgian police uniforms, explosives, and rifles. The terrorists were going to dress as cops, bomb police stations and shoot citizens in the street.
Some 'What ifs' about such an event here, and things to watch for.  And a warning:
I have a friend who works on an FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force in one of the largest cities in the USA.  His unit has been investigating regular burglaries of dry cleaning businesses for years.  In these burglaries, the only items taken are police uniforms that officers have dropped off for cleaning.  This has been happening for almost 10 years and you don’t hear a thing about it in the media.  We’re ripe for an attack of this nature.

"We are Charlie!" my ass

An artwork depicting high-heeled shoes on Islamic prayer mats has been removed from an exhibition after a Muslim group warned of possible violence in the wake of the Paris attacks.

The French-Algerian artist, Zoulikha Bouabdellah, withdrew the work from an exhibition in a northern Paris suburb with a large Muslim population after an Islamic group told local authorities it could provoke “uncontrollable, irresponsible incidents.
Translation: "We are a bunch of uncontrollable, irresponsible children and cannot be held responsible for our actions!  We keel you!"


Write about how oppressive and vicious PC police have become, and they'll prove the point for you.


Attention Michael Moore and the other chickenshits:
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
When Gaith Mohammed, a young man in his twenties with a degree in accounting, went to see “American Sniper” during its opening week at Baghdad’s Mansour Mall, he says the theater was full and rowdy.

“Some people watching were just concentrating, but others were screaming ‘F*ck, shoot him! He has an IED, don’t wait for permission!!’” Mohammed laughed, recounting the film’s many tense scenes when US Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, played by Bradley Cooper, radios in for authorization to take out a potential threat in his crosshairs.
...
Jalal says the movie doesn’t strike him as racist or anti-Arab. He says he finds the main character appealing regardless of the fact that he’s an American soldier killing Iraqis during the US-led occupation of his home country. 

“He was a hero and he went through difficult training,” Jalal explained, saying Chris Kyle was just serving his country, a universal duty for all men. “Besides,” he shrugged, “it’s just a movie, and I like war movies. If they are true or not, whatever!”

If you need Garand fodder, Updated

Midway has some


Update: This being Midway I'm hoping they filtered out the bad stuff, do have this from a commenter:
 I have shot a crap ton of the POF .303 Brit. Y'all should know that this stuff is VERY VERY VERY VERY corrosive ( like battery acid , It uses Fulminate primers as dose EVERYTHING made by POF before 1980 ) It is also loaded with OLD formula Nitro powder and is most of 50 years old. I don't know about y'all but I like my 1500$ Garand more than that.---Ray P.S POF IS NOT BRITTISH. It is made in Islamabad Pak-E-Stan.
I've used some of the Paki .303 as well; yeah, you'd better do the full corrosive-primer cleaning with it.  Again, I'm hoping Midway actually tested the stuff, since they specifically say 'non-corrosive'.  So if you get some, keep an eye on things after shooting.

Range report

I've been trying out the X-Treme plated 123-grain 7.62 bullet in different cartridges as a light load.  Which brings up 'How many might they work in?'

By my caliper they run pretty consistently at .312"(random sample had by grabbing a handful out of a box and measuring them).  Nominal bore for both .303 British and 7.62x54r is .311", for 7.62x39 either .310 or .311"(the bore on my AR is .310), for .308/.30-30/.30-06, .308".  With a cast bullet it's not uncommon to use a bullet as much as three to four thousands above groove diameter(depends on the firearm), usually three is the upper.  That puts these right on/just above the usual line for use in a .308 bore, no problem for a .310 or .311.

And I have a Lee bullet sizing die for .311.  So, to work.

                      DISCLAIMER
These loads were put together by me for my rifles.  That does NOT guarantee they'll work for you in yours.
Use at your own risk, and don't bitch at me if they don't work out for you.

Ahem.
For 7.62x54r and .303, I used these as-is.  For .30-30(going to try .308 and such later) I ran some through the sizer, and also loaded some with unsized bullets(only way to find out).  And, for .30-30 and 7.62x54r I tried out something else:
That's a cast semi-wadcutter intended for .32 Long, .32-20 and such.  RCBS says supposed to weigh 98 grains, these are very consistently between 101-102 grains.  Those for the .30-30 I sized some, for the rest I used them as-cast, lubed with Lee Liquid Alox.  Gallery loads, basically: looking for something low recoil and low noise for short-range plinking and practice.

I mentioned that EVERYBODY who had/could get some time off hit the range the other day; it was busy enough I didn't try to set up the Chrony, so no velocity readings as yet.  And nothing at 100 yards, as the 50-yard area was busy and the 100-yard area was bloody packed.  For most of this not a problem, as these are primarily intended as shorter-range practice loads.


First, the .30-30, using both plated and SWC bullets.  The plated gave very nice groups at 30 yards with 9.0 grains of Unique, for this I upped it to 10.0 grains*; for the SWC I stuck with 9.0.

Bad thing: at 50 yards there was a LOT of drop.  With full-power cast loads this rifle is about dead-on at 50,  with these light loads point of impact was about 13" blow point of aim.  I was using targets printed on 8.5x11" paper with the top of the lower one overlapping a bit, so shots at the top hit near the bottom of the paper on the lower target.
Good thing: groups like this
.30-30 with 123-grain plated

I shot two groups, one with sized and one with unsized bullets; identical results.  If anything, the unsized may have grouped a touch tighter.

.30-30 with cast SWC
That one off to the left was a called flyer.  Groups about the same, sized and unsized.

Recoil was just about nonexistent, especially with the SWC(little bit lighter and softer bullet).  Adjust the sights, and a kid could whack cans or clay pigeons all day long with these loads.  And it'd be cheap loads; the plated bullets run about $47 for a box of 500,  cast SWC- depending on brand and from where- from about ten bucks less to a few more.  Or you can pick up a mold and make your own.  And 9 grains of Unique per load means more than 700 loads from a pound of powder, 700 if you use ten with the plated.


On 7.62x54r I used the plated 123-grain and 15.0 grains of Alliant 2400.  The Standard Load in such cases with a 150-180 grain bullet is 16.0, this bullet being lighter I dropped a grain.  At 30 yards it'd grouped nicely, at 50 it did this
Ignore the hole with the X, and those low-right; I'll get to those in a minute.
I really want to try these at 100 yards.

Again, recoil out of a Mosin Nagant was pretty much not there, and would be even less with the SWC.


I don't have a target for the plated or SWC in .303.  Best I got was about 4" groups, which is lousy(see 'holes you should ignore' above).  Either I had a bad day with this one, or about 30 yards is the limit for accuracy with this load in this rifle.  I need to find another Enfield I can borrow to try them in.


That's the stuff I tried out with light loads yesterday.  Things to do:
Load some 7.62x54r with Unique and the SWC bullets.  And more of the plated to try at 100.
Load some more .303 and try it again to find out if just not suited for this rifle, or I screwed up.


I did try one other thing, this with a full-power load in 7.62x39 in the AR.  I'd read about some having success with .308 bullets, and I have some 130-grain Hornady softpoints, so loaded up a few over 25.0 grains H4198 to try.  This is only fifty yards, but still promising

And I put some groups of the 123-grain practice load downrange, ten rounds each in a couple of groups

I started pulling some off to the left in the last group, between the unaccustomed heat and general worn-down wearing on my concentration. 

So, add to the 'to do' list, load some more of the .308 bullets to try at 100.

One more note: I had thought of making a brass catcher for the AR.  Then, while son was home on leave, we went to a gun show that- surprisingly for those around here lately- was pretty good, and picked up one of these Caldwell units.  Works well.  I usually leave the bottom zipper open, so the empties drop on the bench or floor next to me.  I could wish the mesh had a bit higher melting point, as if a case gets caught in the bag it can stick a bit, always at the case mouth where the temp is highest.



*8-10 grains, a little digging showed, has been used in everything from .30-30 up in .30-caliber cartridges for loads like this.  Including using cast bullets and single buckshot seated in the case mouth.

**Depending on individual rifle, that means setting the sights to 400-550 yards puts it dead on at 100 yards.

I remember reading about the screams from the peace movement

when it was told that the Soviet Union was pushing money and advice into the movement.  There was proof, especially after the SU fell and the archives were open for a while, but a lot of people still deny it.  Well, the Russians are still at it:
A shadowy Bermudan company that has funneled tens of millions of dollars to anti-fracking environmentalist groups in the United States is run by executives with deep ties to Russian oil interests and offshore money laundering schemes involving members of President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.
They want- they NEED- the price of oil back up high.  And the anti-fracking/anti-oil/anti-cheap energy clowns want to help them with that.


Smart Diplomacy!
The former vice chief of staff of the Army warned the Senate Armed Services Committee today that al-Qaeda has “grown fourfold in the last five years.”
“AQ and its affiliates exceeds Iran in beginning to dominate multiple countries,” retired four-star Gen. Jack Keane testified.

Using a term that the Obama administration now eschews, Keane called radical Islam “the major security challenge of our generation.”

And what is the State Department doing?  Playing footsie with the Muslim Brotherhood.  Of course.


And Zuckerberg demonstrates it's actually "I am Charlie(as long as it's convenient)!"


Hey, want an Stg-44?  You may be in luck.


Things like this are why anyone spouting "All cultures are equal!" should be dropped into this region so they can lecture the savages on that.
The leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham has asked all families around Iraq's northern city of Mosul to circumcise their daughters or face severe punishment.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the self-declared Islamic State, has ordered the female genital mutilation of two million Iraqi girls to "distance them from debauchery and immorality".

The "fatwa" issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect four million women and girls, the UN resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq Jacqueline Badcock told reporters in Geneva by video from Irbil.
Oh, I'm sorry, did my calling them savages upset someone?  If it did, screw you.

It being an incredibly nice day for late January,

I took the opportunity to hit the outdoor range.

Along with, as it turns out, something like 1/4 of the area population.

Got some things done, some things just no way to do with it that crowded.

Details to follow

Yeah, I can see a security concern; problem is, that's diluted

by the "We don't want people to know where speed traps are!".  And, as NYPD (unintentionally I think) demonstrated, a helluva lot of modern LE is little more than money-raising.


Scientist named Freeman Dyson had an exchange with a enviroweenie; did not go well for the weenie.  Short version:
Weenie: Since we all agree on x, y and z, then g HAS to be true.
Dyson: No, I do NOT agree on those three, therefore no it doesn't.
Weenie: But the consensus!
Dyson: doesn't mean squat.  Now go away.


Yeah, they really do hate our freedoms.  In part because it prevents them from being able to kill anyone who disagrees with them,


Sen. Harry Reid: hypocritical, vile, whining little shit.

That $15/hour minimum wage?

Yeah, about like we thought.
But a new analysis by Oregon's nonpartisan Legislative Revenue Office suggests the figure would be much smaller, at least for a hypothetical single parent with two children. The actual increase under a $15.10 minimum wage, once lost food stamps and tax refunds are taken into account, would be just $49 a month.

The report, requested by Rep. Julie Parrish, R-West Linn, illustrates the challenge of reconciling an increase in the minimum wage with government assistance programs. It shows that raising wages — without other changes — would offer little help or even hurt low-wage workers.
Look for the next "We have to save people!" to be along the lines of "We need to expand food stamps and such to people with higher wages to fix this!"  Which means more tax money needed, etc. ad "We're screwed".


On general principles, a report on islamic radicalization that Comrade Mayor and CAIR want to disappear, I want spread around.  Therefore, thanks to Weaponsman, we have the NYPD report: radicalization in the West(pdf).  Copy it, spread it around.  You'll annoy hell out of all the right people.

Just 'cause
















Associate Prof. Ed Bridgeman is what they call an 'expert'.

God help the students.
Bridgeman says the AR-15 is the type of weapon that can do the most damage and be purchased legally in the U.S....
The AR-15 is known for its destruction, not accuracy, Bridgeman said.
"It's not a good sniper weapon but good for laying down a lot of fire down range," Bridgeman said.
and the brilliance of
"Put the magazine in, pull the charging hammer and you're ready to go,"  Bridgeman said.
What the HELL is a 'charging hammer', Bridgeman?

Borrowing from Mr. Williamsons' comment,
As an expert, can you explain the discrepancy and error? May I quote you as a source to update these articles?

Also, the AR10 and M1A seem to fire a .308 bullet that's twice as powerful as the .223, but at about the same rate. There are also several Remington hunting rifles that fire even more powerful .30-06s in semiauto.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.308_Winchester

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.30-06_Springfield
Can you explain the discrepancy? For reference purposes, can you please furnish your credentials and professional education history in regards to rifles? Any military experience, shooting schools, or tactical courses would be appreciated.








And what more would we expect from the Holder DoJ and BATFE?

“[T]he court ... issued an order voiding the prior judgment based upon indications that the defendant [ATF], through its counsel, had committed fraud on the court,” Allegra wrote. “[F]raud on the court consists of conduct: 1. On the part of an officer of the court; 2. That is directed to the ‘judicial machinery’ itself; 3. That is intentionally false, willfully blind to the truth, or is in reckless disregard for the truth; 4. That is positive averment or is concealment when one is under duty to disclose; 5. That deceives the court.”

Further detailed allegations, being investigated by this reporter and seemingly corroborated by the unsealed opinion, include Judge Allegra being contacted by Internal Affairs Investigator Christopher Trainor, a key witness in the Dobyns case, concerning his being threatened by a main government witness -- one the judge himself had raised perjury questions about -- and chillingly,also threatened by lead government attorneys. Trainor had reportedly earlier given the intimidation to ATF, which opened a criminal investigation, and then approached ATF and Department of Justice attorneys, both of whom allegedly refused to report the witness tampering allegations to the judge. It is further alleged Trainor was warned by the DOJ attorney that if he reported the witness to Judge Allegra, his career at ATF would suffer.
Read it all.  And try not to break things.

And this little part:
The judge then reportedly notified Attorney General Eric Holder, then-Deputy AG and (“Number Two” at Justice) James Cole, and the Office of Inspector General of DOJ attorney fraud against the court, and issued an order barring seven of the attorneys from filing any further legal documents in the Dobyns case. Although no direct connection has been established, it is noted that the timing of the judge’s notification appears contemporaneous with Cole’s resignation and Holder’s announced resignation.

 Gee, I wonder why...

Yeah, we can get along with these people. Sure.

Mr Badar said that would not be considered appropriate by Allah. He said Muslims should not accept or embrace the freedom of speech preached by the West and urged those present to reject it.
Well, Mr. Badar, you can kiss my ass.  And something as a proper followup is called for:







And in all-tolerant multi-culti Sweden, it's dangerous to be a Jew

Especially in some places.
Lindgren, walking with a hidden camera and microphone alongside, recorded every step. The report showed the reporter enduring verbal abuse by a man who called him a “Jewish s***” and told him to “leave.” Another person hit him and shouted “Satan Jew,” at him.

As they approached the the city’s neighborhoods with higher Muslim populations, the threats only increased. Some 20 percent of the 300,000 residents of Sweden’s third-largest city are Muslim, according to statistics.

“Then a whole gang came along to threaten the ‘Jewish’ reporter,” while occupants of neighboring homes shouted abuse at him. The broadcast caused a public storm in Sweden, with reactions by public figures, local Jewish organizations and international groups
.
Not many Jews left in the city, and most of them want to leave.  I don't blame them.

Oh, and it's because the poor immigrants want to do something about eeevillleee Israel, and since they're in Sweden they have to do it by attacking Jews there.  Yeah, that's a genius-level plan.

“I also heard from people who came in to my shop about how when they were traveling in Europe, their guides told them not to wear a kippa while walking around,” Koresh told The Times of Israel.
In Europe, in 2015.  No wonder more and more are moving to Israel.

Somewhat better now, therefore:

Couple of things found thanks to Uncle:
"We don't care if the law is actually enforced, we just want it there to threaten people with."


Stupid in Tennessee.  For public safety and money.  Probably mostly the latter.


And it gets even interestinger in New York:
Sheriff Lorey volunteered his county to participate in the state's already stumbling permit recertification program. As a result, some Fulton County handgun owners will receive "invitations" to go online and renew their permits under the new system—a process that's supposed to occur ever five years.

"I'm asking everyone that gets those invitations to throw them in the garbage because that is where they belong," says Lorey in the video below. "They go in the garbage because, for 100 years or more, ever since the inception of pistol permits, nobody has ever been required to renew them."

But what's to be gained by volunteering the county and then urging people to toss the applications?

"Let's have everybody's permit expire the same day and let 'em see what they're going to do with it."


A AR lower that will fit both AR-15 and AR-10 uppers.


More on the terrorists in France and the weapons involved.  Including this surprises-nobody-here bit:
In 2010, police in Belgium stated: "Counter to what you may have heard, it's not easy to get hold of a Kalashnikov." To prove them wrong, a reporter for Belgian newspaper La Derniere Heure managed to do so in less than six hours.
Someone tell Howard Dean, maybe he'll start screaming again.


From the third-world shithole that is New Jersey.
And to anyone stupid enough to want to vote for Christie for President: stop breathing.


Those elongated skulls found in Peru?  Some DNA analysis has been done:
It had mtDNA (mitochondrial DNA) with mutations unknown in any human, primate, or animal known so far. But a few fragments I was able to sequence from this sample indicate that if these mutations will hold we are dealing with a new human-like creature, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans.
This should get interesting.

And in more "The science is NOT settled" news,
The ‘Petralona man’, or Archanthropus of Petralona, as it has since been called, was found to be 700,000 years old, making it the oldest human europeoid (presenting European traits) of that age ever discovered in Europe. Dr Poulianos’ research showed that the Petralona man evolved separately in Europe and was not an ancestor of a species that came out of Africa.


Dr. Spencer is unhappy with the current state of climate science.  And doesn't think much of most journalists, either.
What changed is the politics. And not just among the politicians. At AMS or AGU scientific conferences, political correctness and advocacy are now just as pervasive as as they have become in journalism school. Many (mostly older) scientists no longer participate and many have even resigned in protest.

Science as a methodology for getting closer to the truth has been all but abandoned. It is now just one more tool to achieve political ends.

Reports that 2014 was the “hottest” year on record feed the insatiable appetite the public has for definitive, alarming headlines. It doesn’t matter that even in the thermometer record, 2014 wasn’t the warmest within the margin of error. Who wants to bother with “margin of error”? Journalists went into journalism so they wouldn’t have to deal with such technical mumbo-jumbo. I said this six weeks ago, as did others, but no one cares unless a mainstream news source stumbles upon it and is objective enough to report it.






Personally, I lean toward "He doesn't give a damn,

and no longer worries about showing it."

For that matter, considering his past with Rev. Wright, he might not like the idea of seeming to stand on the side of Jews.


That's it for now, folks.  I'm sick to death of the news(Yemen completely fallen yet?), and need to load some ammo.  See you later.

Being of tired mind and stuffed-up head,

with enough body aches to discourage further inquiry, I shall now collapse in a chair for a few minutes to organize the information for the evening
