Range Report

The Armed Christian

For Father’s Day I ordered myself a new Spike’s Tactical lower receiver. It is for a new build that I am planning and has an image engraved that I particularly liked:

Well, the lower finally came in and I was eager to pick it up. Wonderful Wife suggested I get some range time in too. I sure do love that woman but I suspect it may have had more to do with her wanting to go shopping for the grand kids than me getting some time on the range. Regardless of the motivation behind it I was eager to get back to the range especially after the challenges I had last time out.

First and most importantly, whatever was affecting my shooting last time out seems to have been resolved. No idea what was causing my inaccuracy last time out but I was able to tear the “X” ring out…

How America Armed Terrorists in Syria, by Gareth Porter

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

The real US goal in Syria has never been to fight Islamic extremists, it has been to depose Bashar al-Assad. In furtherance of that goal, rather than fight the extremists, the US has armed them. From Gareth Porter at americanconservative.com:

Three-term Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a member of both the Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees, has proposed legislation that would prohibit any U.S. assistance to terrorist organizations in Syria as well as to any organization working directly with them. Equally important, it would prohibit U.S. military sales and other forms of military cooperation with other countries that provide arms or financing to those terrorists and their collaborators.

Gabbard’s “Stop Arming Terrorists Act” challenges for the first time in Congress a U.S. policy toward the conflict in the Syrian civil war that should have set off alarm bells long ago: in 2012-13 the Obama administration helped its Sunni allies…

Manufacturing Companies Struggle To Recruit Workers For High-Paying Management Jobs, by Tyler Durden

All those I know are retired (some unwillingly)
Even know some that are now greeters at wally world

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

There are jobs out there for those who know things that are useful to employers. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Americans who are hoping to avoid the shackles of student debt and proceed straight from high school into the workforce have more options for well-paid gainful employment than they might think. Even as the ROI on college degrees continues to decline, employers in certain blue-collar industries are struggling to fill management jobs that pay as much, or more, than jobs that require a college degree.

One such employer, 84 Lumber Co, is spending millions on advertising to spread its message that a management-track job at one of its stores can be more valuable than a college degree. The company pays trainees $40,000 a year, but employees in charge of top-grossing stores can earn as much as $200,000 a year. And some of those stores, managers earn more than $1 million…

Did Illegals Voting Give Hillary the Edge?

Popular vote total outside California:
Trump: 58,474,401
Clinton: 57,064,530
_________________
Trump: + 1.4 million

In other words, if you take California out of the popular vote equation, then Trump wins the rest of the country by 1.4 million votes. And if California voted like every other Democratic state — where Clinton averaged 53.5% wins — Clinton and Trump end up in a virtual popular vote tie. Then again for several reasons California doesn’t vote like every other state. Besides the fact that it has become a one party State it isn’t called Mexifornia for nothing. It is the destination of choice for more illegals coming north for economic and social reasons than any other State. Although we all know and have experienced the reality that in the aftermath of open borders illegals are now a sizable portion of the population anywhere you go in the U.S. of A.

Why does this have an impact on our understanding of the 2016 election?

Remember President Trump’s famous tweet:

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump

In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally

Dr. Robert Owens Chronicles the History of the Future

The AntiFa Resist 45 Movement loves to point out that Hillary won the popular vote.

However, if you get down into the weeds a bit the picture that materializes isn’t quite what we have been led to believe by the Democrat Party, their bully-boy street thugs, or their media megaphone.

As reported in Investor’s Business Daily if you take California out of the equation it is a completely different picture.

If you look at every other measure, Trump was the clear and decisive winner in this election.

Edward Snowden: “Knowledge Has To Originate From Somewhere, And That Can’t Be A Classroom.” by Arjun Walia

Edward Snowden: “Knowledge Has To Originate From Somewhere, And That Can’t Be A Classroom.” by Arjun Walia

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

Modern classrooms don’t produce alert, active, questioning minds; they produce the exact opposite. From Arjun Walia at lewrockwell.com:

n September 2015, Neil deGrasse Tyson interviewed Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower who revealed the mass spying program(s) used across the globe by multiple intelligence agencies, private governments, and more. His revelations had broad and immediate consequences for both the elite they exposed and the now-informed public, who, prior to the leaks, considered government surveillance a conspiracy theory. Leaks continue to expose government surveillance and the tools/technology they use via Snowden and other whistleblowers, document platforms like Wikileaks, and the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). As a result, distrust in our governments is at an-all time high, and on a global scale.

All of these leaks have brought the existence of Special Access Programs (SAPs) and Unacknowledged SAPs into the public consciousness. These are programs run by what’s become known as “The Deep State,” or…
