top 10 reasons you should own an AR-15

friday, january 25th, 2019

in a recent item for The Federalist, David Harsanyi considered the M16 rifle one of the five most innovative firearms in American firearm development history. Yet something equally significant can be said about the semi-automatic AR-15 derived from the M16. Second to the muskets used in our revolutionary and civil wars, the AR-15 may be the most important firearm in American political history.

All told, more Americans have fired more rounds from more AR-15s for personal defense, defensive firearm training, marksmanship competitions, individual practice, and hunting than from any other rifle. For that reason, the AR-15 is the primary firearm upon which Americans would rely if they had to fight for freedom today.

Here are 10 reasons to own at least one AR-15 and to become skilled in its use.

1. Being armed is your right and may be your civic duty.

On the one hand, for defense against common criminals, handguns can have advantages over the other two basic types of firearms: rifles and shotguns. Within and away from the home, a handgun carried in a holster is always within reach. Also, a handgun is more easily wielded with one hand, while the other hand dials 911; opens or closes a door; pulls, pushes, or carries someone to safety; or is injured.

In the 42 states that have fair procedures for issuing permits to carry firearms away from home or that don’t require a permit to do so, handguns are easier to carry because they are lighter and more compact, therefore more easily concealed. In addition, in some states, handguns are the only type of firearm a permit authorizes a person to carry.

On the other hand, common criminals are not the only threat, nor even the primary threat, because of which the Second Amendment prohibits government from infringing the right of the people to keep and bear arms. The late civil rights lawyer Don B. Kates, in “The Second Amendment and the Ideology of Self-Protection” (1992), explained why:

In the tradition from which the second amendment derives it was not only the unquestioned right, but a crucial element in the moral character of every free man that he be armed and willing to defend his family and the community against crime. . . . Moreover, arms were deemed to protect against every species of criminal usurpation, including ‘political crime,’ a phrase the Founders would have understood in its most literal sense. Whether murder, rape, and theft be committed by gangs of assassins, tyrannous officials and judges or pillaging soldiery was a mere detail; the criminality of [what Thomas Paine termed] the ‘invader and plunderer’ lay in his violation of natural law and rights, regardless of the guise in which he violated them.

2. The AR-15 is the most useful firearm with which to defend against ‘every species of criminal usurpation’ because, first and foremost, it is a rifle.

One day, new technologies in “arms”—“weapons of offense, or armour of defence,” according to a popular Founding-era dictionary—will be introduced, and we should object to the rationale the Supreme Court has established for upholding laws that would prohibit people from owning them. However, for the present, rifles are the type of firearm most useful for the entire range of defensive applications, which, in addition to defense against common criminals, includes the three historic purposes of the militia: repelling invasions, suppressing insurrections, and defeating tyranny, the latter the threat the Framers had in mind when they adopted the Second Amendment.

Most of us don’t have to worry about seaborne invasions today, because would-be invaders could not cross the Atlantic or Pacific oceans past our Navy, Coast Guard, and Air Force, and illegal entries into the United States via land routes are being handled by our Border Patrol; state, county, and local law enforcement officers; and National Guard (the militia’s organized component, unless federalized), with support from our military.

Most of us don’t have to worry about insurrections, either, except perhaps in Portland, Oregon, where police officers recently obeyed their Democrat mayor’s order—like German police did during Kristallnacht—to stand down while a leftist rabble attacked some people, threatened others, and destroyed property.

By process of elimination, that leaves being prepared to defeat tyranny as the most relevant of the militia’s purposes today, as James Madison and Alexander Hamilton envisioned in The Federalist Nos. 46, 28, and 29. That is to say, not to merely “resist” tyranny, as the late Justice Antonin Scalia, mischaracterizing Justice Joseph Story’s “Commentaries on the Constitution,” pretended in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008, pp. 24-25), and certainly not to do so unsuccessfully (Heller, pp. 55-56).

Being prepared to defeat tyranny is relevant for another reason. When the left achieves absolute power in a country, it murders its political opponents.

The best way to deny the left absolute power in America is by defeating its candidates in every election, from president to dog catcher. As the Chinese military theoretician Sun Tzu wrote in “The Art of War” 2,500 years ago, “to win without fighting is the acme of skill.” But as a precaution, we might be wise to remember the French and Indian War’s Maj. Robert Rogers’ “Rules of Ranging,” the second of which is, “Have your musket [yesteryear’s M16 or AR-15] clean as a whistle [and] be ready to march at a minute’s warning.”

In any event, rifles are the type of firearm most useful for the entire range of defensive applications because they are inherently more accurate than handguns and shotguns, are easier to shoot accurately, are more powerful across the greater distances at which they are effective, and can hold more rounds of ammunition. When armed with a rifle, a handgun’s primary purpose is to be ready in the holster in case the rifle runs out of ammunition or malfunctions.

3. The AR-15 is a semi-automatic rifle.

Having failed to get handguns banned in the 1970s, disarmament activists, Democrat politicians, and their supporters in the news media began vilifying semi-automatic rifles, a category of firearms introduced in the late 19th century. In the 1980s, The New York Times, Newsweek, and an anti-gun activist linked to domestic handgun prohibition and international disarmament groups claimed that semi-automatic rifles were popular with “private societies” of Christians and Jews, “paramilitary extremists,” “survivalists,” and other “fanatics of the far right.”

When such claims didn’t convince anyone other than fanatics of the far left, the anti-gunners began complaining instead that the rifles have pistol grips (like every handgun invented over the last few hundred years) and that some have adjustable-length stocks (like rifles used in Olympic and other precision-oriented marksmanship sports).

Ergonomic grips and stocks that are adjustable to the user’s physique and clothing can be advantages when firing a rifle. However, as explained by Maj. Gen. Julian S. Hatcher, former commanding general of the U.S. Army Ordnance Training Center and chief of Ordnance Training Service, in his 1947 book, “Hatcher’s Notebook,” the primary benefit of a semi-automatic rifle, as compared to a rifle requiring manual operation of its loading mechanism between shots, is that you can continue holding a semi-automatic rifle normally, keeping sight of your target, while it reloads itself, and be ready to aim your next shot once the rifle stops recoiling from the previous shot. This is particularly easy with the vast majority of AR-15s, in part because they use relatively lightly recoiling ammunition.

4. The AR-15 is one of the most validated rifles in history.

The Model 1898 Mauser, Lee-Enfield, Moisin-Nagant, and AK-47 probably win on this count, but the AR-15, introduced in 1963, isn’t very far behind. Americans privately own several million more AR-15 rifles and carbines than the number of M16s and carbine-variant M4s in military inventory, and they buy about 1 million new AR-15s every year.

Over the last 55 years, the AR-15 has been improved more often and in more ways than the M16 and M4, and today it is the most versatile semi-automatic rifle in history. It is more accurate and, properly maintained, more reliable than the supposedly ultra-reliable AK-47 and the legendary M1 “Garand,” which, during World War II, Gen. George S. Patton called “the greatest battle implement ever devised.” Furthermore, some AR-15s exceed military specifications for the M16 and M4 in terms of accuracy and quality controls related to durability and reliability.

5. The AR-15 is the most modular rifle in history.

AR-15s can be configured for the two practical purposes of firearms—fighting and hunting—or for competitions or informal practice. There are versions with rifle length, carbine length, and shorter barrels, some of which are designed to emphasize accuracy, some to emphasize durability. They can be had with fixed-length stocks or with the adjustable-length stocks Democrats don’t want you to have.

Slings designed for the AR-15 allow you to support the rifle across your front to be ready for use, stabilize the rifle when aiming, switch quickly between right-handed and left-handed shooting, quickly secure the rifle to your side when transitioning to your handgun, and secure the rifle across your back when you need both hands free to perform some other task.

AR-15s have the best iron sights ever invented for a fighting rifle, they’re commonly equipped with red dot and telescopic sights, and they can use night vision and thermal sights. They’re also commonly equipped with handguards that accommodate flashlights, visible lasers, infrared illuminators, and infrared lasers for use in low-light conditions.

All AR-15s—except for those manufactured during the 10 years the federal “ban” on so-called “assault weapons” was in effect, those manufactured in disfigured form to comply with the laws of several states dominated by Democrats, and a few others—have attachments that mitigate recoil, dissipate the puff of smoke and flash of light associated with firing a rifle, or both. Additionally, some of those attachments accommodate devices that reduce the loudness of gunshots, to protect your hearing and to make it easier to hear safety-related instructions when training or practicing on a supervised range.

6. In most cases, you can fix your AR-15 yourself.

If Never Trumpers, self-styled conservative purists, and “independents” don’t vote Republican in November 2020, and the following year a Democrat president and Congress ban AR-15s (for real, this time), you will be able to keep your previously acquired AR-15s running with a handful of relatively inexpensive, previously acquired parts that you can install yourself, without the services of a gunsmith. No other firearm, with the exception of the Glock pistol, is so easy to maintain.

Because the Democrats’ gun ban would include a ban on magazines holding more than 10 rounds and would cause a run on ammunition, you might be wise to also stock up on a dozen or more standard-equipment, 30-round magazines, several 20-round magazines, and a case or two of M193, M855, Mk 262, or Mk 318 ammunition, the primers and case necks of which are crimped and sealed for increased reliability.

One other thing: remember to watch out for the nuclear bombs that Democrat presidential hopeful Rep. Eric Swalwell wants the military to drop on you for refusing to hand your AR-15s over to the government.

7. The AR-15 is the rifle most commonly used for defensive firearm training.

Some people believe they are skilled with a gun because they own one. Fortunately, most never find themselves in situations in which that assumption costs them their lives. Anyone who is serious about being capable of using firearms proficiently for defensive purposes should take classes with instructors who specialize in defensive skills training. When you attend such classes, almost all of your instructors and fellow students will be using AR-15s.

8. The AR-15 is the rifle most commonly used for marksmanship competitions.

Some gun hobbyists think competitions are important for their own sake. However, from a defense-related perspective, competitions have value to the extent that they support training objectives and provide a venue for testing and validating product improvements.

As they are currently conducted, competitions have next to zero value in terms of offensive or defensive tactics training, but you can nevertheless benefit from participating in the action-oriented variety of them because they include target-shooting scenarios that will show you some of the skills in which you are weakest, thus upon which you need to work.

9. If you are skilled with your AR-15, you can help prepare young Americans for military service.

Want to “support our troops” in a tangible way? Get trained and share your knowledge with tomorrow’s uniformed warriors before they sign up for duty. The manual of arms for the AR-15 is identical to that of the M16s and M4s that are issued in the military. Recruits have to qualify with their rifles during basic training, and those who already have experience with the AR-15 will be ahead of the game in their knowledge of safety procedures, marksmanship, loading and unloading procedures, and malfunction clearing procedures.

10. The more Americans who own AR-15s, the more likely the Supreme Court will consider them “in common use.”

As I explained in an essay for The Federalist earlier this year, in Heller the Supreme Court incorrectly said that the Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear only such arms as are “in common use.” One of the many problems with that idea is that no matter how many AR-15s there are and how many Americans own them, judges and justices who don’t want you to have them can claim that they aren’t common enough to be considered “common.” However, until that portion of Heller is corrected, the more Americans who own AR-15s, the ever so slightly harder it will be for those judges and justices to do that with a straight face.

A Day In The Life.

I slept-in until 8a on Friday, with only 1-2" of snow on the ground, 16°, fired-up the furnace and made Kona Hawaiian Coffee, scanned the weather maps and news. I was feeling nauseous, so all I had was a couple of slices of Potato Bread toast, w/ Apricot Marmalade. Then I had to drive to Rite Aid Pharmacy to get a Rx drug printout from Jan 1 – Dec 31, 2018, and p/u 3 Rx refills. Lee stopped by with some food after spending 3-4hrs at the New Eastern Market, here in East York. That place is only open on Friday, and parking is a bitch, unless you get there early.

Years ago, I used to go; besides York's superb downtown Central Market, it's the best for fresh food of all kinds, especially meats, seafood and the local Lancaster & York farmers' crops.

Damn, here we go again, with Winter Storm "Harper":


• WHAT...Heavy mixed precipitation expected. Total snow and sleet accumulations of 3 to 6 inches, with localized amounts up to 9 inches, and ice accumulations of up to two tenths of an inch are expected.

• WHERE...Adams, York and Lancaster Counties.

• WHEN...From 1 PM Saturday to 1 PM EST Sunday. Heavy snow will move into the area Saturday afternoon and change to sleet then freezing rain before midnight. A change to all rain may occur overnight. The heaviest of the snow will be in the late afternoon and evening. Sleet and freezing rain accumulations overnight could also be heavy.

• ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on difficult travel conditions. Be prepared for significant reductions in visibility at times. Precipitation will taper off around sunrise Sunday, but the wind will become stronger and cold air will drop the wind chills and produce blowing snow.


The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission strongly encourage motorists to heed all travel restrictions and delay unnecessary travel. Visit www.511pa.com for the latest travel, roadway and traffic conditions.

I skipped lunch and made a mid-afternoon dinner Grilled Ham & Cheese w/ Potato Chips, I believe in simple things, like the miracle this day brings. had some Red Raspberry Gelato, and laid down on the LR couch to rest. After a few hours, I was back up at 7p, watched History Channel's "Ancient Aliens" and Discovery's "Gold Rush", until 11:30p, took my evening Rx pills, put-in the 2 types of eye drops, and went to sleep. Tomorrow's weather be damned; I'll just stay inside if it gets bad.

Looks like the socialist, fascist, leftist, commie demokkkRATs are about to have a internal civil war; have at it, subhuman filth! Pass the popcorn.

Up at 8:45a, I fired-up both the furnace and computer, made coffee, and of course, checked the weather and news. Now, we're getting the snow/rain/ice today, tonite and tomorrow. Depending on how far north the worst hit, we could get by easily; or not, if it plows right thru our area. I skipped breakfast, had a couple of Ensure® Max Protein Shakes®, and drove over to Rite Aid to p/u another Rx refill. It sure looked and "smelled" like snow, but it was 35° and the snow and ice would come later today, when temps drop. I avoid the "Shutdown Day 27... 28... "news crap", for Fun and Laughs, and try to listen to CATV, "Chris Plante Show" etc.

How dumb is the coming generation. Pretty dumb, as it turns out.

After a huge lunch of PA Dutch Chicken Pot Pie and Pistachio Gelato, I settled-in and watched a boatload of Discovery Channel®'s "Garage Rehab" episodes, kept checking the Weather Channel® weather maps, put the Jeep away in the garage, and walked my next door's dog for her, since she was just getting-over pneumonia, after a triple bypass. This was one small dog who didn't yap at me, or try to bite my ankles. Nice doggie. The freezing rain, sleet, ice and snow hit Harrisburg at 3:30p and descended upon us around 5p.

So many faces in and out of my life; some will last, some will just be now and then.

Is there no reason to hit a woman?

I'm (maybe) leaving the condo at 11p, to drive down to the Ol' Garden Center & Nursery property, on Sunday evening, where it's dark, to watch the rare Super Wolf Blood Moon Eclipse, at 11:41p. I have Dad's set of 40x binocs, and will wear some heavy clothes, as it's to drop to 4°F tonite. If I see any UFOs, I'll note that, too.

Super Wolf Blood Moon Eclipse

The MotorTrend® Channel (formerly Velocity Channel) had one of my favorites, "Iron Resurrection" on, with a pile of episodes, so I watched as the rain turned to a sleet/ice snow mix. NatGeoTV had "CIA Secret Experiments", "Area 51: The CIA's Secret", "Air Force One: America's Flagship" and a host of shows on that I couldn't resist, until after midnight. I pulled the plug, as the sleet/snow/ice intensified.

It was a big disappointment when I got up at 9:30a on Sunday morning: no snow. Just 3¼" of water in the garden water gauge. No ice, even. F•ck it; I made coffee, turned-up the heat, fired-up the computer to have a look at the weather maps. Bitter cold is on the way, but that's easily dealt with. So will be next weekend's new Snowstorm.

I was planning to leave at 11p, to drive down south to watch the rare Super Wolf Blood Moon Eclipse, at 11:41p, but ummmmmm, it's already 11°F outside. And with 35-50mph wind, it's well below -10°F. Maybe I'll pass on that kind of cold, and just watch the video on YT.

When I the 82" Samsung delivered and installed, back in November 2018, I added a streaming service called Roku, and it's wonderful. For the past 2 days, it's been freezing-up and not obeying commands. So I pulled that TV slowly 3ft away from the LR wall, unplugged and replugged the Roku USB, and that cured the problem. I watched various episodes of Project Blue Book, and American Pickers, and Bad Chad Customs until 11:30p, and pulled the plug.

Up at 8:30a on Monday, it was only 8° outside (-17° wind chill) with 35-40mph winds, I layered-up clothes, fired-up the furnace, made coffee and turned-on WMAL's "Chris Plante Show". I'd forgotten it was a National Holiday – MLK Jr – and that all gov't, banks and schools, plus many private businesses would be inconveniently closed, for that commie, drug-addicted, white women humping asshole. I had a small food shopping list for Weis Market, so around 10:30a, I decided to get out, get the mail and go to Weis to get some foodstuffs. The roads were empty. As usual, I bought 2-3x what I needed; heh. MEMO To Self: always go to food store on a full stomach.

Back home and after unloading groceries, I worked on 2018 Taxes, for the next 5hrs, but I'm waiting for financial and other forms to arrive from banks, investment houses, medical, SSA, etc. No CATV or any other noise. By 7p, my eyes were crossed, and I'd had enough paperwork. The "American Pickers" was on History Channel, so I joined-in as their 20th Season opener was at 9p. I watched it, and promptly dozed-off until almost midnight. I pulled the plug and headed upstairs. I was 11° and headed down to 5°, so I left the condo's temp at 73°. Wind chill -3°. Tomorrow I'm sleeping-in until 10a, or later if I can.

I slept-in until 9:45a on Tuesday, to a sunny, balmy 16° day. With my Rhododendron leaves curled tightly, at the back broken flagstone patio, from thermotropism, you just know temps are in the low-teens and single-digits. I had some errands to get done, and a few stops to make, so I got those done after a late breakfast of Sunny-Side-Up Eggs on Toast, I was back home by 12noon to sweep-out the garage, have a smoke in there, leaving the Jeep out in the sunny, balmy 24° weather. I had the Dyson Hot+Cool Fan Unit running in my office/sunroom all day, as I kept the condo at 75°, but that futuristic heater/cooler really helped. I went to my Ophthalmologist's office for #1 of #2 app'ts. Still doing the 5 drops of 2 Rx drops in each eye.

At 1p, I heard water splashing in the kitchen, and rushed in to find the dbl sink's wastewater line leaking all over the floor, pouring out of the doors below the sink. I got everything out of the space, dried it all off, dried the floorboard under the sink, and put a pile of towels under the leaking pipe. I tightened one of the fittings with my adjustable wrench, but couldn't get at the main fitting collar to tighten it, so I called several plumbers, and they were all busy with frozen/broken water pipes calls and repairs. I then called Jeff Stott, my condo's rehab GC from last Fall, and he said he'd have his company's plumber out by 5p. He showed-up, fixed the leak (pipe had vibrated loose and gasket fell out to let wastewater out, I tipped him $50, and he was done by 5:30p.

Remember, when you're feeling "down in the dumps", it could be much worse.

I watched the new, and some previous, episodes of both Curse of Oak Island, and of Project Blue Book caught the Accu-Weather.com's Winter Weather Advisory for Thursday-Friday, until 11p, and bagged it for the night.

Up at 9:30a on Wednesday, with an almost-tropical 40° outside, I fired-up the furnace and computer, made coffee and instant oatmeal w/fresh red raspberries, and scanned the weather and news websites. The next 2 days are to be just rain, changed from snow, and in the upper-40s/lower-50s. No complaints from me. I worked on taxes again for the day, after a run to Rite Aid for an Rx refill. Looks like the IRS employees don't give a shit about showing-up for work, but we all have until March 15th to file our taxes.

I needed a break from the 2018 Taxes' paperwork – I'm about a quarter of the way done, and still waiting for forms to arrive – so I watched the Science Channel's "Mysteries of The Abandoned", as Wednesday is a lousy day for History, Discovery and NatGeoTV: just shit/garbage/trash on them all day long. BTW, in case you like the series, as I do, here's the "American Pickers" 18 Seasons vault of 269 episodes. And if you can stream your CATV or computer, as I do, here's a huge repository of their shows.

Wednesday night is "NBC" (Nothing But Crap), but fortunately the MotorTrend® Channel (formerly Velocity Channel), had some new season show episodes I'd missed, so I spent the evening watching them, until 10, when I took my evening Rx pills, and pulled the plug for the night. The cleaning ladies are due here at 8:30a, and I have some errands to do, so I can't sleep late. I set the alarm for 7a.

The hard rain pounding on the condo's 4 skylights and BR's 2 windows, woke me at 2:30a on Thursday, and I couldn't get back to sleep. Too many weird dreams, and too many things on my mind. I fired-up the furnace, made coffee in the two-week-old new Chemex® Ottomatic® 2.0, fired-up the computer and checked the weather and news. I made Eggs Benedict on English Muffins, and Potato Pancakes, and then laid down on the LR couch, but my right shoulder muscle was hurting so bad, I just couldn't fall asleep.

I finished the 6 cup coffee pot, and just before the cleaning ladies arrived at 8:30a, I left for Weis Market to get a few things. This time on a full stomach, so I didn't buy a bunch of extranneous crap I didn't need. My shirt cleaners near Weis, DeVuono's, is closing after 20+yrs, so I'll have to drive 12 miles south to Red Lion's cleaners, same company, where I used to go, when I had my Ol' Garden Center & Nursery, from 1990-2012. The ladies were done and gone before I got home and had put my first set of White/Grey Windowpane Flannel Sheets on the bed, with two other sets rotated weekly thru the Winter months: Blackwatch Plaid Flannel Sheets and Montlake Plaid Flannel Sheets.

I fell asleep on the LR couch, for a few hours, watched some "American Pickers" and "Vegas Rat Rods", took my evening Rxs, and called it quits at 10, since I have a 10a Drs app't tomorrow. Tomorrow starts a new week here in the Journal, and the surgical procedures will begin again in February and March, so I have a week or two until things get serious.

Wrong MAGA Kid Was DOXXED & Threatened; Brother Speaks Out.

People rushed to judgment about some — as it happens, innocent — Catholic school boys in MAGA hats who thought they were clapping to a friendly Native’s drumming over the weekend in D.C. It was a nothing burger, but the media and liberal/leftist mob, as usual, ripped into the kids, drumming up hate.


The social media haters doxxed the wrong kid. They claimed the ‘smirking’ boy was Michael Hodge and it wasn’t. The boy didn’t even go on the trip.

This is the real Michael Hodge, and it’s not the ‘smirking’ boy.

The vile mob is insulting this cute kid now.


The brother of this falsely accused Covington Catholic High School student doxxed by the mob, Andrew Hodge, took to Twitter to share the terror his family is experiencing with his younger brother, Michael, being falsely identified as the ‘smirking,’ MAGA hat-wearing student standing in the vet’s face.

“Yesterday was supposed to be a day of celebration for my middle brother Alex, who got married last night. Instead, my family had to deal with the fallout of my youngest brother #MichaelHodge being falsely accused for standing & smiling in front of an indigenous man with a drum,” the elder brother tweeted.

He shared several tweets describing the abuse and threats the family and their business are being subjected to. He described what a great kid his brother is, and added they [the mob] should hold themselves to a “higher standard.”


Andrew Hodge shared AG Conservatives thread which is a good one if you want to look at evidence. The Sentinel put out stories from the beginning since we knew the players and realized it was a typical leftist assault, plus we research these stories first. Read here and here and here. Our first story for which I received hate mail was, MSM Is Lying About the Boys in MAGA Hats Mocking a Native-American.

Watch the spliced tape and read the boys’ account if you don’t believe me.


Hollywood producer Jack Morrissey, who has since protected his vile tweets, is calling for their deaths. It would have been better if he apologized, but members of the mob don’t. They shirk responsibility and cower under the desk or in his case, behind protected tweets.

Jack Morrissey needs killing!

Independent reporter Tim Pool wrote: This Native American / MAGA kids incident is a dangerous warning to all of us. It’s a video where literally nothing happens yet all of these people are freaking out like the world is ending. Very few people care about the truth they just want to be angry.

Sorry Tim, but if they didn’t learn with the Justice Kavanaugh assault, they are incapable. The mob is blinded by hate and irrationality.


Scientists Discover New Element: –Pelosium

A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium. The chemical symbol of Pelosium is Pu. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311. These particles are held together by dark particles called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Pelosium’s mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientist to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass.

When catalyzed with money, Pelosium activates MSNBCobnoxium and CNNadnausium, both elements that radiate orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since they have half as many peons but twice as many morons as Pelosium.

Since it has no electrons, Pelosium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Pelosium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second. In the presense of anti-morons, Pelosium can be extremely corrosive. Botox seems to distort and smooth it’s surface, without impeding it’s ongoing decay.

Pelosium has a normal half-life of approximately two years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a transmutation, appearing in a new location but displaying the same properties. In this process, assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each transmutation.

Research at other laboratories indicates that Pelosium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, universities, and anywhere there is news coverage occurring. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings.

Scientists point out that Pelosium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Pelosium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising. (Anonymous Email)

DemokkkRATs' Wet Dreams.

Rather than deal with Illegal immigrant wave number 2, the Democrats on the Hill engage in wet dreams and socialism.

★A 70% tax rate?? This is the proposal that will bring in American votes - Yeah Right.

★Government run healthcare "Medicare for all". Yeah Obamacare skyrocketed premiums. So instead lets Tax them to a literal death with European style healthcare.

★Abolish the Electoral College so that New York, California, and Illinois rules - the little states be D*mned.

★100% renewable Energy. Lets just ban gasoline and diesel vehicles like Trucks and Cars, and depend on wind and solar energy for our needs even though they are not dependable nor sufficient.

★Ban Guns. Who cares if illegal Aliens come across the border with them. Our Ranchers deserve to die and don't need no stinking 2nd Amendment. For that matter so do US Citizens, they don't need to protect themselves from MS-13, we Democrats will get around to protecting them eventually.

Democrats please engage in some more wet dreams. We are excessively entertained during this Shutdown.

Where's The Chaos?

The government shut down Dec. 21 over Sen. Chuck Schumer and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi petulantly not wanting Trump to have any border wall funding. The federal government spends $4.4 trillion a year; the $5 billion Trump wanted is one-tenth of 1 percent of that. About the same percent that Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren is Native American.

If you are like me, you are more worried about government starting back up than it being shut down.

Who will open our open-air national parks? Who will answer the phones when we call? Who will give us the runaround at the IRS? Who will put us into intractable wars? Who will use the Justice Department to go after political opponents? Who will put us $22 trillion in debt?

Well, here we are again, I guess it must fate. We tried it on our own, but deep inside we've known, we'd be back to set thing straight.

Most of NASA is shut down, including the division that we pay to monitor to see if aliens in outer space try to contact us. I trust they put their “Out of Office” message on their email before they went home, in case aliens contact us.

Shouldn’t there be chaos? Why are you not looting Target for a flat-screen TV? Who will let me know when the panda cam is back on at the Washington Zoo?

Two things become clear during a government shutdown: how little we need most of government, and how petulant public servants can be when they do not get their funding. Under Obama, there was much petty government intimidation. Remember how he hired extra people to make sure our open-air national parks were kept shut so citizens could not just walk through them?

Heavy-handed goons run a swollen government monster that intimidates its funders, the taxpayers. It is structurally incapable of spending just a little less than it did the year before and seeks revenge when asked to live within its means. This shutdown teaches us that it is no big deal getting 25 percent of the government out of our lives. Americans will adapt. Let’s shut down most of the government and just hire back any part that we miss.

With historically high employment, I suggest we let about one-third of government employees find real jobs in the real world. You know, jobs that require accountability and productivity. Trump should keep government closed. If you can find it in the Yellow Pages or online, government does not need to be doing it.

Washington and the Deep State hate Trump no matter what he does, even when he does Obama-like things. He has done prison reform, run a huge deficit, is pulling troops out of Syria and Afghanistan, etc. If Trump doesn’t stop acting like Obama, he might ask to see his own birth certificate.

Since the Democrats won the House, the stock market has cratered. The Dems want to investigate, not legislate. House Speaker Paul Ryan has ceded power and decided to let someone else not get anything done.

Schumer, Pelosi and fellow libs run our overreaching, ineffective and expensive government. Should we be happy when government is back? It feels to me like my niece got back together with an abusive husband when that happens.

Trump made an unannounced trip to Iraq over Christmas. With Mueller on his tail and Democrats spending inordinate time wanting to use the blunt force of the federal judiciary to investigate him further, Trump stands as the only president to go to a war-torn area for peace and quiet.

Government shutdowns have become a well-worn path of a dysfunctional Washington. It is like Schumer and Pelosi are walking the marble halls of the Capitol and 20 feet ahead of them they see a banana peel. They both say, “Here we go again.”

The government shutdown over border wall funding is petulant politics at its best. Government means more to Democrats like Schumer and Pelosi because it is their lives. There is no easy off ramp for either side on this standoff. Now it is a waiting game to see who blinks first. And Nancy Pelosi has had so much work done on her face that she can’t blink anymore. So expect her to not rest until she fully embarrasses Trump (a particularly hard man to embarrass) or she captures all 101 Dalmatians.

When the federal government was not working, Trump probably called Tech Support in India to get advice. He told the guy government isn’t working, and the Tech Support guy said, “Just try turning it off for a while, then back on and see if that does the trick.”

The Fake News Media Doesn’t Even Put Up A Pretense Anymore.

All fake news, all the time. If you still do not believe that our national media establishment is 100% in the pocket of the Democrat Party and coordinates messaging with that political party on a daily basis, consider the following story.

We are now in Day 9 of a partial “government shutdown” that exists over the issue of illegal immigration. Early this week, in the midst of this “government shutdown,” a California law enforcement officer was murdered by an illegal alien who he was attempting to arrest for what would have been the illegal’s THIRD DUI crime. Yes, that’s right: thanks to California’s sanctuary laws, this illegal had already been arrested for and convicted of two DUIs, has known gang affiliation, and despite all of that had been allowed to just get out of jail and roam free on the state’s highways to put more lives in danger.

Behold a pale horse, and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hell was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with plague and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Anyway, that murder took place four days ago now, and in all that time, not one Democrat officeholder has been asked by one intrepid “journalist” to comment on the situation. Think about that: California has 53 members of the house and 2 U.S. senators, and not one of them has had to field a single question about how they can continue to support open borders and sanctuary laws when their state’s police officers and citizens are being murdered by illegal aliens.

The reason why is obvious: The media and the Democrats are coordinating on a narrative, and that narrative dictates that only Republicans must field difficult questions about illegal immigration. Any “journalist” who violates the narrative runs the risk of being dis-invited from all the best dinner parties. This is not complicated, folks.

Speaking of fake news... – two other fake news stories dominated the fake media this week, and boy, were they doozies.

First, you had the “bone spurs” story. This story, which we’ve heard many, many times before, made a comeback this week, with “new” information. That “new” information came in the form of the two daughters of the doctor who treated Donald Trump for bone spurs in 1968 claiming that her father – who is conveniently dead – told them that he faked the diagnosis on orders from Trump’s father Fred Trump, so that Donald Trump could avoid the military draft in effect at the time.

1968 is half a century ago, for those who are chronologically challenged.

So, first of all, who cares? Other than a bunch of pedantic Millenial soy boys and valley girls staffing the fake reporter desks at CNN and MSNBC, that is.

Second of all, why should we believe these two women? In all seriousness – there is literally no reason at all to believe they are anything other than liberal attention-seekers. They bring with them zero supporting evidence – no documentation, no statements from their father or any other doctor. No media outlet would have dreamed of going forward with this story were it leveled at a Democrat president, yet every media outlet in America has parroted the claim this week.

Third of all, who cares? Yes, that deserves repeating.

The next big fake story of the week came from the pathetic McClatchy News Service, which updated its claim from earlier this year that ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen had visited Prague during the 2016 campaign to hold secret meetings with Russian agents. This story has been debunked more times than the one about the moon landings being faked, but that didn’t stop McClatchy running with an update claiming that...

“A mobile phone traced to President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen briefly sent signals ricocheting off cell towers in the Prague area in late summer 2016, at the height of the presidential campaign, leaving an electronic record to support claims that Cohen met secretly there with Russian officials, four people with knowledge of the matter say.”

Those “four people with knowledge of the matter”? They are not merely anonymous sources – they are anonymous sources being quoted by other anonymous sources, as Brit Hume so ably pointed out:

Brit Hume? @brithume It turns out that the new McClatchy story on Michael Cohen in Prague is not based on intel their sources saw but what their sources’ sources said they saw. The story remains exclusive. (https://dailycaller.com/2018/12/28/michael-cohen-prague-mcclatchy/)

Michael Cohen Report Is Based On Third-Hand Information, Reporter Reveals McClatchy reporters did not see Cohen intelligence for themselves.

(dailycaller.com) 3,741 people are talking about this Twitter Ads info and privacy The reason why McClatchy’s story remains “exclusive” is that it is so obviously faked that none of the other fake media outlets want to touch it.

This is the sort of nonsense your OUR President has to put up with on a daily basis. It is intentional, it is relentless and it is unending.

The lowlife filth at AP clearly demonstrated their fake bian and hatred for Conservatives in the obit for Bre Payton, a conservative writer at The Federalist and frequent guest on television news outlets including Fox News Channel. AP is filth.

Best Explanation Of A Politician.

While stitching the hand of a 75 year old farmer, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually, the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders.

The old farmer said, "Well, as I see it, most politicians are 'Post Turtles'."

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle was.

The old farmer [rancher] said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle."

Rule of Three: 3 Minutes Without Air. 3 Days Without Water. 3 Weeks Without Food. 3 Months Without Love.

The old farmer saw the the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't even know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumbass put him up there to begin with."
