Do you ever wake up in the morning lacking inspiration for breakfast? I know that I do! Then occasionally I will have breakfast ready for my boys when they wake up in the morning but when they come downstairs they might ask for something completely different. And who can resist such a cute little face?
In its farewell message to Barack Obama The LA TIMES editorial board puts its blinders on, creates its own false realities and advises the incoming President to follow in the footsteps of Mr. Obama (“Trump may not embrace many of Obama’s policies, but he would serve himself and the country well by studying the way his predecessor conducted himself.”)
Enforcers of drug prohibition can be perversely ingenious in devising methods to subvert due process guarantees. One tactic widely employed by police officers looking for a way to circumvent the Fourth Amendment is to intimidate a subject into giving the officers permission to invade the rights of others – such as residents of an apartment building, or passengers in an automobile. That ruse has been rebuffed in two recent state Supreme Court rulings.
The Trump administration transition team is considering plans to open White House press briefings to more alternative media outlets. The plan, which includes moving the briefings to a larger venue on the White House complex, has some mainstream media journalists worried they’re losing their monopoly on presidential coverage.
She was the first Presidential candidate in modern history who did not call the victor and offer him some kind of belated congratulations. The word was that she was drunk and couldn’t talk. I’ll accept that. I’ll also accept the fact that she is an arrogant woman who was convinced she was going to win, and she had her 69-year-old head handed to her. I don’t really care why she didn’t call Trump. She is a sore loser. Most of all, she is a loser. She was discarded onto the ash heap of history on November 9. The MSM have no further use for her. She is no longer on anyone’s radar.
I don’t care how good of a driver you are — there are situations where you can’t keep on trucking. I remember an icy parking lot that put me in a snow bank, simply because I couldn’t get enough traction to overcome gravity (the parking lot was sloped, and the exit was uphill). I’ve seen the same happen to truckers, who literally had to bail out of their rigs when gravity overcame friction and their trucks started sliding backwards, down the mountain. Then there were the times when blizzards cut visibility to the point where I or someone else drove off the road, thinking we were driving on it.

Please indulge me in this, as I not only want to share the knowledge I have gleaned about this topic, but also a little bit of the passion I have learned for it that motivates this article in the first place.

Even the most prepared of families can fall on hard times when winter comes. Depending on where you live in the world, winter can mean extreme cold temperatures, harsh winter storms, and complete lack of food resources. This can add up to life-threatening situations, which is why prepping for winter should be at the top of everyone’s list. Here are some of the best tips to keep in mind for making the most of winter survival.
The tax cost health insurers $8 billion in 2014, the first year the Affordable Care Act went into effect. That collective tax rose to $11.3 billion in 2015 and 2016. I will rise to $13.9 billion in 2017, and will rise again to $14.3 billion in 2018.
The bottom line is that if you can live without Facebook or other social media networking sites, by all means don’t use them. If you do decide to use them, keep the information you post to a minimum. For instance, the only photo I have posted on Facebook is more than a decade old. I log on once weekly to answer messages from my family. I don’t accept “friends” whom I don’t already know personally. If you use Facebook or other social media sites, I suggest you take similar precautions.
When building a fire ring, the most common design people think of is the ever popular Cowboy Circle Ring. It is simple and usually works well, but there are other fire ring styles you should be aware of when in survival mode. Let’s look at four of them.
Few terms are as divisive in today's United States as "political correctness." A concept that was intended to create greater freedom in the country may instead have resulted in the opposite. It also helped strengthen the right wing.
The much-anticipated Intelligence Community report backing up its claims that the Russians hacked the US elections in November has just been released. Titled “Declassified Intelligence Community Assessment of Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections,” the report is long on speculation and short on any evidence for the claims it was supposed to prove. It even came with a warning label stating that though the conclusions are reached with “high confidence,” that “does not imply that the assessment is a fact or a certainty; such judgments may be wrong.” We who lived through the 2002 “high confidence” in Iraqi WMDs remember this possibility well.
Which leads to an 11th form of fake news: if one lie doesn’t quite fly, tell a much bigger lie. And these mainstream sources are currently shouting and bloviating about independent media spreading fake news. I guess you could call that number 12: accusing their opponents of committing the crimes they are, in fact, committing.
Once I started harvesting them, I learned quickly that fresh radishes are bad about getting really rubbery if you leave them out at room temperature for more than a day. After a little experimentation, I learned a couple of ways to store fresh radishes to keep them crisp until you’re ready to use them.
In a normal survival situation, fire is something you need for things like light, heat, protection, and the ability to cook food. But in the event of a house fire, it can become your biggest enemy and something you need to escape from immediately.
Obama wasted no time uttering his trademark lies. In his third sentence, he stated that his “conversations” with the American people “are what have kept me honest.” Honest? Are you kidding? This guy’s the sneakiest, most deceitful pathological psychopath of a lying president in US history. Two of his biggest whoppers out of the gate numbering in the thousands will go down in infamy...
Every American who looks at the CIA objectively or in a balanced way and judges it by any number of criteria, such as moral, legal and pragmatic, should reach the conclusion that the CIA should be abolished. JFK wanted to break it into a million pieces. Trump is right to dismiss its intelligence reports about DNC hacking. The CIA war on Trump shows us immediately that the CIA is a rogue organization within the U.S. government and a severe threat to America.
One of the most important considerations for indoor gardening is light. While some vegetables will chug along with a bare minimum of six hours of light daily, they will flourish with 12-16 hours daily. Clearly, grow lights are a must, especially during winter. However, one of the most common mistakes among indoors gardeners is using the wrong type of light.
A home solar energy system is one of the best ways to reduce your carbon footprint, increase your home value, and lower your electricity costs for decades to come. In recognition of the many benefits that solar offers for homeowners and the environment, many organizations – including the federal government, states and towns, and electric utilities – have established incentive and rebate programs to lower the cost of solar. Income tax credits, rebates, and tax exemptions are just a few of the incentives that could be available where you live.
In general, ducks are less destructive and lay better in the winter. But, they are far messier and noiser than chickens. Having both is awesome, though and I seem to get the best of both worlds. Perhaps try them both for yourself and see which you like best. Or maybe you’ll be like me and just love them both!
Facebook has launched its so-called ‘Journalism Project’ as a way for the social media giant to further bolster its position as a news media organization and promote what it determines to be real news.
Wake up, Self-Proclaimed “Progressives”: you’re apologists for an Evil Empire.Your devotion to the Democratic Establishment that has mastered the art of bleating politically correct speech acts while destroying entire nations renders you the classic useful idiots, on par with those who defended Stalinism and the Soviet Gulag because “it was the right thing to do.”
We covered the attempted robbery of a Georgia store just after Christmas. It didn’t go so well for one of the robbers, who was killed at the scene. The other fled. We now have security camera video of that incident. To paraphrase Gunsite founder Jeff Cooper, you aren’t any more armed by buying a gun than you are a musician because you bought a piano. To be any good, you’re going to need training, and you’re going to need to practice.
For once, can we do the right thing and end this disaster sooner rather than later? Can we admit that Obamacare is a failure and so was the president it’s named after? This Vietnam War of social programs cannot be won. “Saving Obamacare” makes as much sense as “peace with honor” which cost thousands of lives past the point we knew that war could not be won. Repeal! Day One, repeal!
With Republicans in control of Congress, and GOP legislators at the helm in statehouses throughout the nation, 2nd Amendment advocates are confident that the anti-firearm push led by Barack Obama and the Democratic Party in recent years has stalled.
For many weeks we have witnessed the extraordinary attack by the CIA and its assets in Congress and the media on Donald Trump’s election. In an unprecedented effort to delegitimize Trump’s election as the product of Russian interference in the election, the CIA, media, senators and representatives have consistently made wild accusations for which they have no evidence. The CIA’s message to Trump is clear: Get in line with our agenda, or we are going to mess you over.
President Barack Obama has seized more than 260 million acres of land and water throughout his tenure using the Antiquities Act of 1906. As his final presidential term comes to an end, the Obama White House has increased its pace of declaring thousands of acres of land and water federal property.
