Here we go with THAT collectivist meme again.

"Right-wing terrorism kills more Americans than jihadist extremism."

Collectivists keep running their mouths about more firearm restrictions. Dems double down on gun control tighter than a tick on a dog. What could possibly go wrong for them?

"Democrats Urge Obama To Act On Hillary Clinton's Gun Control Proposal. They want him to tighten the gun show loophole through executive action."

More along the lines of "Firearms confiscation for thee but not for me."

"Lt. Gov. of California: ‘I want your guns but leave mine alone.’"

Two for the Praxis file.

From Sam Culper: Good Chart of Rules for the Use of Burner Phones
A Guide to Understanding LiPo Batteries
This one was forwarded to me by a faithful reader with the comment: "Useful information for those of us that still think that all long term battery technology involves lead plates and acid electrolytes. If you plan on humping comm. radios, using "hobby" security drones, or other high energy draw items you need to learn about LiPo batteries. They have some real advantages, but they can cause trouble, too."

John Richardson sez "This Is Getting Tiresome." True, but the fact is that this aspect of the big lie is bloody well effective.

"The New York Daily News - 'New York's Picture Newspaper' - is keeping up their propaganda campaign against the NRA and Republicans for refusing to add those on the FBI's Terrorist Screening Database to the NICS denied list."

That's okay, I guess, because only black lives matter, right?

A 91-year-old man was beaten, then doused with gasoline before he and his home in northwest Detroit were set afire by a burglar, police said. Paul Monchnik, a retired TV repairman, was found dead in his burning home in the 20500 block of Bentler Court around 3 a.m. Monday.

Endangered species sighted at local WalMart.

I had to stop by WalMart to pick up some medicine yesterday morning and out of idle curiosity I stopped by the sporting goods department where an employee was putting up the latest restock. Lo, and behold, what did I spot but a single cardboard box containing 2 1000-rd bulk packs of Winchester M-22 .22LR ammo! I had the fellow unbox and scan them and they were $49.95 each. That's the first time in darn near a year that I've seen bulk pack .22 ammo at a decent price. With the local tax, they would have been five and a half cents a round. I'm sure someone scarfed them up quickly.

"Two bands of cannibals fighting over who gets to eat your corpse." Black racists shot by white racists, or legitimate self-defense? Both? This collectivist excrement is going to get out of hand, as it was apparently designed to do.

This is further proof of Dr. Richter's dictum as expressed to me that the left-right graph of the political continuum is a lie taught by collectivists to make you think that there is some legitimacy to their respective positions whereas the truth is that they are two sides of the same murderous coin. They are simply, in his words, "two bands of cannibals fighting over who gets to eat your corpse."
"Five people shot near Black Lives Matter protest in Minneapolis."

So much for those who put their hopes in the black-robed bandit gang. David Codrea: "In Refusing to Consider Marine’s Ordeal, SCOTUS Weakens Deterrents to Hearsay Commitments."

"Per its posted Proceedings and Orders, the Supreme Court declined to hear the Case of Brandon Raub last Monday. That slams shut a door in the face of a Marine veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and who was seeking justice for his unlawful detention for disapproved political speech. It also leaves other Americans in similar danger of being committed to institutions based on 'experts' relying on what police tell them rather than on impartial evaluations and due process."

"A Transatlantic Thanksgiving: Churchill's 1944 Remarks Still Resonate."

"On Nov. 23, 1944, the British Prime Minister made his way to the Royal Albert Hall where the American community in London was commemorating Thanksgiving. It’s not clear whether Winston Churchill invited himself or if his remarks were planned. In any case, his presence was an inspiring surprise for the audience. He spoke for a few minutes without notes."
Link to the pdf of the entire statement.
We have come here tonight to add our celebration to those which are going forward all over the world wherever allied troops are fighting, in bivouacs and dug-outs, on battlefields, on the high seas, and the highest air. Always this annual festival has been dear to the hearts of the American people. Always there has been that desire for thanksgiving, and never, I think, has there been more justification, more compulsive need than now.
It is your Day of Thanksgiving, and when we feel the truth of the facts which are before us, that in three or four years the peaceful, peace-loving people of the United States, with all the variety and freedom of their life in such contrast to the iron discipline which has governed many other communities — when we see that in three or four years the United States has in sober fact become the greatest military, naval, and air power in the world — that, I say to you in this time of war, is itself a subject for profound thanksgiving.
We are moving forward in this struggle which spreads over all the lands and all the oceans; we are moving forward surely, steadily, irresistibly, and perhaps with God’s aid, swiftly, towards victorious peace. There again is a fitting reason for thanksgiving.
I have spoken of American thanksgiving. Tonight here, representing vaster audiences and greater forces moving outside this hall, it is both British and American thanksgiving that we may celebrate. And why is that? It is because under the compulsion of mysterious and all-powerful destiny we are together. We are joined together, shedding our blood side by side, struggling for the same ideals, until the triumph of the great causes which we serve shall have been made manifest.
But there is a greater Thanksgiving Day which still shines ahead, which beckons the bold and loyal and warm-hearted, and that is when this union of action which has been forced upon us by out common hatred of tyranny, which we have maintained during these dark and fearful days, shall become a lasting union of sympathy and good-feeling and loyalty and hope between all the British and American peoples, wherever they may dwell. Then, indeed, there will be a Day of Thanksgiving and one in which all the world shall share.”

This looks interesting. "The banker behind Hitler’s shadow empire."

Hjalmar Schacht was the most powerful minister in Germany, an economic "wizard" with a destructive plan for growth.
This, too, looks like a must read. "Other People's Money."

"Republican Reps Killing Stand Your Ground Bill 'Betrayal' to Florida Gun Owners" sez the NRA.

A House committee killed off a bill to shift the burden of proof in Stand Your Ground cases earlier this week and the National Rifle Association isn’t too pleased with the committee, calling the 6-6 tie vote a 'betrayal' to law-abiding gun owners."

It won't work with the present make-up of the court, but it's worth trying.

"Gun Owners of America Challenging Federal Machine Gun Ban."

Chuck Baldwin on the Paris attacks.

Baldwin's take: "The Paris attacks, the refugee crisis, ISIS, a world on the verge of global war: it’s all a manipulated contrivance of the globalist elite to eviscerate freedom and usher in Huxley’s 'Brave New World,' aka George H.W. Bush’s 'New World Order.' Folks, get your eyes off of the Wizard and start looking for the man (men) behind the curtain, because that’s the real enemy."

The Jack Yantis Case: Tax-fed assassins execute citizen in Idaho.

A king of men was killed by boys in blue, or rather by deputy sheriffs, Barney Fife’s types. But these Barney Fifes, while just as insecure as he of Mayberry, are on steroids and their AR’s have banana clips full of bullets, verses one in the pocket. And they unloaded these magazines into the torso of a king. On that murderous evening the venerable Idahoan rancher and logger Jack Yantis, age 62, was having dinner with family and a friend when he received a call from the sheriff dispatcher informing him his prized 2,500-pound black Gelbvieh bull had been hit by a Subaru station wagon outside his ranch gate. The bull’s rear leg was shattered by the collision. When Jack arrived at the scene the deputy sheriffs had already been taking pot shots at the bull from a safe distance away with no effect other than to enrage it. Jack probably displayed both sorrow for his bull and disgust with the hapless deputies. A enraged, hurt bull is a dangerous, unpredictable animal, but Jack went up close to the bull and with courage and skill pointed the rifle at the sweet spot of the head for the coup de grâce. Jack was about to pull the trigger when a deputy grabbed him from behind and spun him around. The deputy then pushed Jack Yantis, who began falling and tried to regain his footing. One deputy began shooting at Jack and then the other. They had AR-15’s among there arsenal. Jack’s wife, Donna, and a nephew were also at the scene and screamed at the deputies to stop. Shot in the chest and abdomen, Jack Yantis fell to the ground.

Mike’s question is a good one, but folks, this is only the beginning. You’d better seek for clarity of thought and a strong moral compass.

The latest from the Collectivist Newspeak Network: "CNN Caught Selectively-Editing Trump’s ‘Muslim’ Comments."

"Left-wing cable news network CNN has been caught red-handed selectively editing Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s comments about a 'Muslim registry,' and doing so in order to make it sound as though he is agreeing to this registry. He is not."

"Black Lives Matter and Michael Bloomberg: the oddest couple?"

"The media have treated the budding partnership between the ascendant Black Lives Matter and the perennially frustrated gun control movement as if it were the most natural thing in the world — probably because both efforts lean left. That alliance, however, is truly unlikely, even nonsensical. Historically, civil rights and gun control have been at odds. The blunt fact is that one side seeks to rein in law enforcement, while the other wishes to give it more power."

I wonder if there's anything quite so suicidal as training your enemy in how to beat you. Maybe in transferring top secret technology to him. O wait, we've already done that. Maybe in letting him get away with hacking your most sensitive secrets. Oh, wait . . .

"U.S. and Chinese troops connect in first-ever exchange at JBLM."

I don't suppose any of this matters since the Archbishop of Canterbury doubts that there is in fact a God.

"An Asian family who converted to Christianity claim they are being driven out of their home for the second time by Muslim persecutors. Nissar Hussain, his wife Kubra and their six children said they have suffered an appalling ordeal at the hands of neighbours who regard them as blasphemers. They claim they are effectively prisoners in their own home after being attacked in the street, having their car windscreens repeatedly smashed and eggs thrown at their windows…. Police have been called numerous times to deal with the trouble but are said to be reluctant to treat the problem as a religious hate crime. Only one successful prosecution has been made, and Mr Hussain said he feels so let down by police he has lodged a complaint with the Independent Police Complaints Commission. He also criticised the Anglican Church for failing to provide any meaningful support."
