CIA Releases New Details on Cold War Mission
Post Date: 2010-02-16 07:44:59 by war
WASHINGTON (Feb. 13) -- In 1974, far out in the Pacific, a U.S. ship pretending to be a deep-sea mining vessel fished a sunken Soviet nuclear-armed submarine out of the ocean depths, took what it could of the wreck and made off to Hawaii with its purloined prize. Now, Washington is owning up to Project Azorian, a brazen mission from the days of high-stakes - and high-seas - Cold War rivalry. After more than 30 years of refusing to confirm the barest facts of what the world already knew, the CIA has released an internal account of Project Azorian, though with juicy details taken out. The account surfaced Friday at the hands of private researchers from the National Security Archive who used ...
SWAT Team Responds to Cap Gun at Wash. School
Post Date: 2010-02-03 04:56:07 by Murron
SWAT Team Responds to Cap Gun at Wash. School VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) -- The initial 911 report from the Vancouver, Wash., elementary school was alarming: shots fired at a school playground. That had police and SWAT officers scrambling Tuesday morning - only to find the weapon was a bright orange cap gun. Police and school officials say a second-grade boy at Eleanor Roosevelt Elementary School brought the gun and apparently pointed it at two 6-year-olds and fired it, discharging smoke. The two students told a playground supervisor that another student had fired a gun at them - and the response took off from there. Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp says, "When you have that type of a call, ...
Obama Administration Shuts Down Oldest Gun Show in Central Texas
Post Date: 2010-01-18 18:56:30 by A K A Stone
In a disturbing update to a story covered in-depth today on the Alex Jones Show, Texas grocery retailer HEB has banned Texas Gun Shows from holding a monthly gun show. HEB is the lease holder on the property where the gun show was held. HEB used the staged arrest of a man by the Austin Police subsequently released without charge at the event over the weekend as a pretext to shut down the oldest gun show in central Texas. Alex Jones noted on his show today that he has attended guns shows at the venue since he was in high school. Listeners to the Alex Jones Show should be aware that this backhanded tactic or similar tactics used by the ATF will be used at the behest of the ...
More Guns, Less Crime in '09
Post Date: 2009-12-30 03:45:58 by WhiteSands
Americans went on binges buying guns and ammunition in early 2009, worried that a radical leftist president and Democrat-dominated Congress would violate their Second-Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. The effects? Less murder, robbery, rape, and property crime, according to an FBI report released Monday. This gives the young president and Democrat Congress at least one proud but unintended accomplishment for which they'll never claim credit. Indeed, gun buyers were out in droves in late 2008 and early 2009. While it's easy to infer that increased gun ownership figures align precisely with the drop in crime in the same calendar period, you won't see that headline in the ...

Post Date: 2009-12-30 03:38:13 by WhiteSands
By Adrienne Lu Inquirer Trenton Bureau The number of homicides in New Jersey declined for the third consecutive year, state Attorney General Anne Milgram announced yesterday, echoing a drop in crime across the country. Camden led the way in New Jersey with a decline from 55 to 33 homicides as of Dec. 21, a 40 percent reduction. Statewide, New Jersey had 332 homicides in 2009 as of Dec. 21, compared with 369 as of Dec. 21, 2008, a drop of 10 percent. Milgram attributed New Jersey's overall drop in violent crime to more effective law enforcement efforts, including antigang initiatives and seizures of illegal guns. "We have now successfully decreased the number of murders in New ...
Paintball and Airsoft as Legal Ways of Militia Training

Paintball and Airsoft as Legal Ways of Militia Training By Coral Snake An important part of becoming a free states populace becoming the well regulated militia mentioned in the second amendment is pretty much the same as in any military body, drilling and combat training. However even many states that allow forearms ownership unconstitutionally prohibit such training by civilian bodies. However there IS a way of having militia style training legally in most states through legal combat gaming also known by the guns and projectiles such games use, Paintball and Airsoft. Most people that are interested in guns, militaria, real life combat games and video games and the like has probably heard ...
Rider Passed Protecting Military Firearms, Ammunition, and Components [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2009-12-19 10:35:03 by sneakypete
With the holiday season upon us, and the end of the year fast approaching, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3326the Department of Defense Appropriations Act of 2010. With the passage of this bill, NRA-ILA wraps up its appropriations work for the year. Our efforts on the huge spending bill were rewarded with the restoration of a longstanding rider to protect M-1 carbines, M-1 Garands, M-14s, .22 caliber rifles, and others from being destroyed. This language also includes a prohibition on the destruction of small arms ammunition and components, and a response to the short-lived concern over destruction of spent brass casings earlier this year. Section 8019 of the bill ...
Times Sq. gunman held weapon like rapper
Post Date: 2009-12-13 19:10:02 by Happy Quanzaa
A Times Square bloodbath was narrowly avoided because the machine-pistol-toting thug who fired at a cop flipped the gun on its side like a character out of a rap video, causing the weapon to jam after two shots, law-enforcement sources said yesterday. When scam artist Raymond "Ready" Martinez held the MAC-10-style gun parallel to the ground, it caused the ejecting shells to "stovepipe," or get caught vertically in the chamber, the sources said. The gun is designed to be fired only in a vertical position. If he had fired the weapon -- which had another 27 rounds in the clip -- properly, Martinez, 25, could have killed the hero cop pursuing him and countless others ...
Bayer Admits GMO Contamination is Out of Control

Anti-gun ObamaCare at a Crossroads
Post Date: 2009-12-08 06:57:57 by Sarajevo
Passage or defeat will depend on whether Senate Republicans pursue a smart or stupid strategy Friday, December 4, 2009 The spectacle on the Senate floor -- in connection with the anti-gun ObamaCare bill -- is disgusting. The Senate is debating socialized health care right now, and some Republicans may be ready to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. This alert is long, but it is necessarily so. Here's the situation as it stands right now on the Senate floor: * Harry Reid is pushing a $3 trillion bill with over $500 billion in new deficits. But he is trying to conceal the deficits with accounting fraud on a scale which would put anyone else in prison for the rest of his life. * ...
MSNBC: ObamaCare Protesters ‘Racist,’ Including Black Gun-Owner
Post Date: 2009-08-20 09:17:00 by kneepads
On Tuesday, MSNBCs Contessa Brewer fretted over health care reform protesters legally carrying guns: "A man at a pro-health care reform rally...wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip....there are questions about whether this has racial overtones....white people showing up with guns." Brewer failed to mention the man she described was black. Following Brewers report, which occurred on the Morning Meeting program, host Dylan Ratigan and MSNBC pop culture analyst Toure discussed the supposed racism involved in the protests. Toure argued: "...there is tremendous anger in this country about government, the way government seems to be ...
Obama's Draconian Gun Control
Post Date: 2008-09-06 21:17:05 by Coral Snake
I'll give the mainstream media this: They're consistent. They're consistently ignoring Barack Obama's statements that he "supports" the Second Amendment, and they're also consistently ignoring Senator Obama's repeated calls for the kind of gun control that would spell the end of the Second Amendment as we know it. Back in 1999, Obama called for a laundry list of gun control, including a 500 percent increase in taxes on firearms and ammunition. He called for bans of affordable handguns. He called for mandated "smart gun" technology. He demanded that FFLs not be allowed to maintain their business within five miles of a school or a park. In short, ...
Gun Control = Genocide
Post Date: 2008-08-27 03:37:13 by Coral Snake
Gun Control = Genocide The Gunrunner All creatures, from the largest whale down to the smallest bacteria, have the innate ability and willingness, to defend themselves. Contrary to the perversion preached by psychiatrists (that man's basic urge is for sex), survival is the basic goal of all living things. To suppress this most basic instinct will ensure the destruction of that group, race or society. Yet that is exactly what certain humans who have political or social power over other humans have been doing for thousands of years. They do so because they know what's best for you and can justify killing you to prove it. Today, most of the American species ...

Gun Control Precedes Government Sanctioned Genocide Will America Learn From History? "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjected people to carry arms; history shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjected people to carry arms have prepared their own fall." (Adolf Hitler) Fact: Nazi Germany's style of "gun control" removed the last barrier to the genocide of 13 million people--over 6 million were Jewish--just 50 years ago. It was called "The Final Solution". Disarming citizens was key in the success of this misguided political scheme. America's Deadly Direction...It Can Happen Here Nazi ...
John McCain Is A Liberal Gun Grabber
Post Date: 2008-08-12 00:44:07 by Coral Snake
www.gunowners.org Feb 2008 John McCain Is A Liberal Gun Grabber by Pastor Chuck Baldwin As published at NewsWithViews The last thing we need is another liberal neocon in the White House. If the Presidency of George W. Bush proved anything, it proved the hazard of electing phony Republican conservatives. At least one is able to clearly see a liberal for what he or she is when they have a "D" behind their name. But put an "R" behind the name and suddenly their liberal, Big-Government, anti-freedom agenda is barely recognized, which makes a liberal Republican much more dangerous than a liberal Democrat. Let me say it straight out: a John McCain Presidency would be far ...

Is 100 years enough time in Hell for McCain of should it be more?
Post Date: 2008-01-06 18:12:12 by A K A Stone
I'm embarrassed for my country that we have a total moron by the name of John Mccain running for president. He thinks it would be ok for us to be in Iraq for a hundred years or even a thousand years or more. The guy is an intellectual grasshopper. But lets talk hell. Is 100 years in hell enough for McCain or should it be more? I think he deserves more.
US Congress approves tighter gun control law
Post Date: 2007-12-20 12:49:20 by A K A Stone
WASHINGTON (AFP) The US Congress has approved the first major gun control legislation in more than a decade, broadening background checks for gun buyers in the wake of a deadly campus shooting earlier this year by a mentally ill student. The legislation approved Wednesday by the Senate provides government funds to improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), the main way gun purchases are monitored in America. It also allocates funds for gun owners and potential gun owners who are prevented from owning weapons due to mental illness so that they may challenge the ruling in court. Existing laws prevent mentally ill people and convicted felons from legally ...
Gun-Free-Zone Liability --
Post Date: 2007-12-17 08:51:47 by A K A Stone
"If you create a gun-free zone, you're liable for any harm it causes." This may be the most important pro-rights gun bill to come down in many years. A version of the bill was first introduced in Arizona (HB2456 in 2002) by Rep. Randy Graf (R-6th), with considerable support (12 sponsors!). In 2003, Rep. Graf re-introduced it in Arizona (HB 2320). The state of Georgia joined the effort to enact this important new legislation with HB31, introduced by Rep. Bobby Franklin (R-17th). At least two other states actively considered the bill. The Gun-Free-Zone Liability Act has excellent value even if it isn't enacted in its first years -- it is a just and common-sense bill ...

Navy veteran questions why six nuclear missiles were flown on combat aircraft to staging area for Middle East
Post Date: 2007-10-08 23:33:23 by A K A Stone
A retired lieutenant commander in the Navy Reserve who served with the Navy's Supervisor of Salvage questioned in a little-noticed editorial Sunday why six active nuclear armed cruise missiles were being transferred to an active bomber base that "just happens to be the staging area for Middle Eastern operations." "The United States also does not transport nuclear weapons meant for elimination attached to their launch vehicles under the wings of a combat aircraft," Navy veteran Robert Stormer wrote in the Texas-based Star-Telegram. "The procedure is to separate the warhead from the missile, encase the warhead and transport it by military cargo aircraft to a ...
