Signed by the Governor: Maine Law Prohibits State Gun Registries

Posted on June 22, 2017 AUGUSTA, Maine (June 19, 2017) – Last week, Maine Gov. Paul LePage signed a bill into law prohibiting any type of state firearms registry. The law will not only protect the privacy of Maine gun owners, it will also hinder the federal government’s ability to develop a firearms database and create a climate less favorable to federal gun control. Rep. Patrick Corey (R-Windham) introduced House Bill 9 (LD9)  with a bipartisan coalition of cosponsors in January. The legislation prohibits the creation of a state firearms registry. “Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, a government … Continue reading

Sec. Mattis – Attrition vs Annihilation

      Lol Terry missed the rest of the story in his exuberance over the Gen. Mattis “Mad Dog” reply. I just got around to listening to the whole interview.   I wonder if Terry heard the part about surrounding and annihilating too. Embarass and make life too hard to continue their rampage. Oorah sir…….Finally, we have a military leader to reckon with and an administration willing to back the tough stance.           Absolutely fantastic interview. –Uriel–

“West Point To Arlington”

I heard this song on The Sean Hannity radio show and I welled-up a bit. It’s a tear-jerker. “West Point to Arlington” is a tribute song for Special Forces Captain Andrew Pedersen-Keel who was Killed In Action while serving in Afghanistan in 2013. The song was co-written by his friend Sean Niquette, who is an Iraq War veteran, in collaboration with Bob Reagan and Don Goodman from Operation Song,which is is a nonprofit in Nashville that helps veterans share their stories through song writing. It is sung by Ward Davis. It’s a song written about one warrior, in one war, but … Continue reading

World News Tidbits – Will This Be Blamed On Trump Too

  ABC, USA Today, Telegraph UK and BBC carried a piece of news for any interested in the Pacific Rim. “Philippines troops backed by attack helicopters battle Islamist militants in besieged southern city.” As all eyes were on Trump’s trip and the Manchester bombing, news out of the Philippines was barely a blip on the screen. Yet there are…interesting developments from the Philippines which could possibly raise a few eyebrows and create more questions than answers…not only about ISIS but Duerte (as if he isn’t already a problem for US regional bases and interests). ABC  writers Jim Gomez and Teresa … Continue reading

T.G.I.F. NOT !

Dear Gentle Readers, The following article is a reprint of a post I wrote at about this time last year ( with a few updates ). I’m not re-posting it again because I am lazy.

Cyber News From DC

  Last week many of the major countries of the world were cyber attacked and hijacked with malware. Even today we may be seeing repercussions here and abroad. What it has done is ratched up the concerns of the world over malevolent attacks. Cyber security has been a growing concern for many years. Certainly on the Hill it has been talked nearly to death without a lot of positive results. As usual Congress simply jabbers and rarely has pushed to achieve on an issue of growing and great concern. Just as the email scandals of the DNC and Hillary Clinton have … Continue reading

Sixteen Year Long Afghan “Raging Tiger By The Tail” – Now What…

For sixteen years and to some accounts more, the US has been involved in a stalemate in Afghanistan. Neither winning, nor losing simply pouring more tax dollars down the tubes. We have a tiger by the tail; but now that we have engaged, how do we stop and evaluate our efforts as a success or failure? This is what the Trump administration is left to deal with after billions have been lost, soldiers killed or maimed, equipment stolen or sold to insurgents, and dishonorable or plain stupid, dangerous decisions, or indecisive attitudes by the past administration. “As Afghan Stalemate Grinds … Continue reading

MOAB Death Toll Rises

On Thursday the US Air Force dropped a M.O.A.B on an underground ISIS facility in a remote part of Afghanistan at the request of US Special Forces attempting to root the troglodytes out.  The cost to our brave soldiers would have been horrific via conventional combat.  To that end, a M.O.A.B was requested and the request was granted and the bomb was deployed.  What resulted was a 2 mile wide crater.  Initially 36 jihadis were reported dead.  Now the death toll is 94 and climbing including 4 head ISIS commanders.  It will never be possible to know the full extent … Continue reading

Did China Just Deliver A Major Slap Down To North Korea

The following was sent over media nets but quickly removed. However, it was there long enough to be cached by at least one media outlet.

Why Is There Such A Problem With Syria – Part 1 Overview

  Why Is There Such A Problem With Syria   We have had ample history over a thousand years of the rise, encroachment, receding, and dissolution of the Ottoman Empire and all those who were Islamic followers. In most cases, western cultures do not understand them nor their lifestyles at all and there is often a clash on beliefs and laws. Most westerners do understand that the different groups in the Middle East have been warring for as long as there have been tribes and sects of Islam. Just as most westerners today realize many of the so-called radicals follow … Continue reading
