Maybe the movement to strip McAuliffe...

...of his personal protection was gaining traction.
McAuliffe Surrenders, Restores Concealed Carry Reciprocity in Virginia
Whatever Mcauliffe's reasons for caving. This is a win for gun owners and a loss for the haters. Gun owners got reciprocity back for a compromise that prohibits those under protective orders from possessing firearms and the presence of the State police at gun shows to carry out background checks on private sales IF the seller wishes. It isn't mandatory. McAuliffe has to eat crow and his AG gets slapped down. And then there is the sweet sound of the haters ire; bitching and moaning. Life is good.

He's a supporter of the NRA, but...

...he's OK saying things that the enemy are perfectly willing to spin to their advantage. Not good, sir. Not good.

'Cuz they're so much...

...better trained than the rest of us.

...more responsible than the rest of us.

...more professional than the rest of us.

...[add you own].

Hundreds of DHS badges, guns, cell phones lost or stolen since 2012
Not so much.

The difference being... is actually unindicted felon while the other is talking out his ass.

The stupid, it hurts...everywhere

In Denmark, a teen fought off her attacker and potential rapist using pepper spray. He fled and she may be arrested for using an illegal weapon.

That's f****d up wherever you are.

No One Will hear You by Max Allan Collins and Matthew Clemens

It meets collins' usual standard which is very good. You should see the twist coming but with Collins it's not so much where you end up as how you get there. I liked this book and recommend it to one and all.

Quotes of the Day

No one is just as bad. Granted, the other Republican candidates aren’t perfect. They range from “pretty good” to “almost as bad as Hillary”. BUT if my scenario is right — and even if it’s not a conspiracy I think this is how it will play out — even Hilary is not as bad as Trump. Oh, don’t get me wrong, as bad or worse in governance, because they’re both incredibly corrupt and both a little nuts. BUT electing Trump as a Republican cuts off the avenue of future escape. - Sara Hoyt
When Trent Lott, Bob Dole, John McCain, and Orrin Hatch would all prefer Trump over Cruz, you guys might want to reexamine who is the "anti-establishment" candidate. Duh.

When the dude donates to the likes of Clinton, Rangle, Schumer, and Rahm Friggin' Emmanuel, and the only right side donation that comes close in dollars is to Mitch "Turtle Face" McConnel's Great White RINO Hunt against the Tea Party Fund, that might be a clue who is part of the establishment. - Larry Correia

Trump is not the nation's salvation. He's our frickin' doom. I still say he is or was a Clinton operative with the intent he run as a third party candidate and draw votes from the GOP a la Perot. It's only way I could see Hillary winning. I think what they didn't take into account is the number of low information voters he is attracting and his chutzpa and arrogance. If there is a chance in hell he can win, he will take back seat to no one.

...and water's wet.

Hillary Clinton blames the vast right-wing conspiracy for her e-mail woes
Hillary Clinton blames everything on "the vast right-wing conspiracy". What else is she gonna do? Admit she's corrupt and has violated Federal law.

You Can't Stop Me by Max Allan Collins and Michael Clemens

I've had this and the companion novel No One Will Hear You for a while now. Other books kept bumping it. I'm sorry I waited so long. The story follows a television personality and former sheriff in the search for the murderer of his family. It's stock Collins and stock Collins is damn good. The twist at the end worked, and although I didn't see it coming, it wasn't pulled out of the writer's ass. The clues were there if you paid attention. It's a good book and I'm looking forward to the sequel. Recommended.

On amending the Constitution

Glenn Reynolds: Blow up the administrative state
Some on the Left have given Texas Governor Abbott holy hell for his proposals for an Article V convention. They don't oppose amending the Constitution. Just this method. Why? They can't control it. The fact they oppose such a convention is a good enough reason to go ahead with it. Maybe we end up with a smaller more restricted Federal government. Maybe not. What I do know is that if we continue as we are this bloated bureaucracy will continue its uncontrolled growth and we in "flyover country" will continue to suffer.

I like Mike Rowe.

I suspect we're not on the same page via gun control but he's honest and speaks his mind as opposed to parroting talking points. That, I can respect. The rest of Hollywood, not so much.

H/T to Bob.

The Miskatonic Manuscript by Vin Suprynowicz

In this adventure it turns out the resonator from H. P Lovecraft's short story From Beyond is real and in use by some anti-drug warriors. Again heavy on talk and light on action but interesting and recommended.

State of the Union

If President Obama reported the true state of the union, people would be grabbing tar and feathers, and he'd be on a plane to Cuba.

...and just because it bears repeating.

Actually, Congress Did Take Action; They Said No
They didn't fail to act. they failed to give President Butthurt what he wanted and he threw a tantrum. So the claims that Congress failed to act are an out and out lie, but that's what they do...lie.

At this point, I'm not sure I care.

"Preacher" Producers Talk Source Changes
I know very little original material that survives contact with Hollywood. There's this need to make it "better", but mostly they mess it up. Usually, that doesn't bother me, because I have no real investment in the original source material. If the producers can manage to produce product that captures the spirit of the original I'm happy. They screwed up Fantastic Four and I didn't care. Paul Verhoeven fucked up Starship Troopers and I'm still pissed off. Preacher had the potential to be excellent television, and then Seth Rogan got hold of it. I'll wait and watch the pilot but my hopes are dim and I'm not sure I care any more.

Just like us, only better

Apparently Bloomberg is testing the waters...

...for a Presidential run. So maybe those people who want a authoritarian, anti-freedom, anti-gun prick in the White House will have two choices: Bloomberg or Hillary.
Bloomberg Eyes Third-Party Run Against Trump and Clinton

In New Hampshire... evil git tried to mug a 65-year old woman outside her apartment and got shot for his trouble. He survived the encounter and is now in law enforcement custody. The woman was unharmed.

The NRA's approval rating, per Gallup, is 58% while President Obama's hovers around 45%. Oh, and Clinton's at 41%. So you guys, keep up that gun control rant...please.

Quote of the Day

In most matters, contrary George W. Bush’s infamous assertion, the president is constitutionally not “the decider.”

He’s the doer.

Congress is supposed to be the decider—even (or sometimes especially) when it doesn’t do what the president wants. - Bonnie Kristian

The Testament of James by Vin Suprynowicz

Appears Jesus' brother James wrote a book about his famous sibling and organized religion has a vested interest in making sure no copies surface. Actually it's not for the reason you might think. It's OK. I liked his The Black Arrow much more. I think it was too much talk and not enough happening. Still, it was worth reading. It was definitely interesting, and I look forward to the next in the series.
