This Handgun Instructor’s Certification Should Be PERMANENTLY Revoked

We do not need instructors that are more of a danger to concealed carry students than the criminals they are training to defend themselves against.

Ohio firearms instructor Terry Dunlap has had TWO negligent discharges where he accidentally shot people in his presence. The most recent occurred during the concealed handgun class he was teaching. He shot Michael Piemonte, 27, of Pataskala, while he was demonstrating a .38-caliber handgun. The bullet hit Piemonte’s right arm. The shooting occurred on Aug. 10 toward the end of a 12-hour day of training in gun handling and safety.   Read more »

To Respond To Russian Aggression, Sell U.S. Natural Gas To Ukraine

Vladimir Putin invaded Georgia. Now, the Russian bear is after Ukraine.

Ukraine is almost totally dependent on Russia for energy. Russian imperialism has proven that it is willing to use gas as a political and economic weapon to intimidate its neighbors. Twice it turned off the fuel switch in Ukraine, and I was even in Ukraine the last time Putin turned off the gas during winter. It was cold.

Many other European nations are also at the mercy of the Kremlin when it comes to energy. We can help European countries who depend on imperialist Russia for energy by selling them natural gas from America.

The DoD Should Look at Every Penny Before Cutting a Soldier

On Thursday, I spoke at the National Security Action Conference against the Department of Defense’s recent budget decisions, Putin’s aggression in Ukraine, President Maduro’s oppression of Venezuelans’ freedoms, and a nuclear-armed Iran. 

Everyone would agree that there is waste, fraud, and abuse at the Pentagon, like any large bureaucracy…Yesterday I had the opportunity to question Secretary Hagel.

Detroit’s nation of takers! (video)

This Detroit squatter story is unbelievable on so many levels: home invaders had the complete audacity to blame a home owner for leaving her house? What?

The Fox News reporter keeps it “real,” including her lingo.

But what is really crazy is what the neighbors had to say about people using somebody’s house — their words and attitude are symbolic of the Obama Nation, and Liberalism in general.   Read more »

Senator Cruz: The United States Should Stand With Ukraine

The situation unfolding in Ukraine right now is a harsh lesson that no matter how great the victory, we must never rest on our laurels. After the United States won the Cold War and the Soviet Union ceased to exist in 1991, many on both sides of the aisle believed that the Soviet threat to freedom was a thing of the past and that the new, democratic Russia would be a reasonable partner and even an ally.

Recent events demonstrate this is not the case. Vladimir Putin barely waited for the flame of the Olympic torch in Sochi to be extinguished before he turned his attention to crushing the most recent attempt of the Ukrainian

Brian Terry's Death Exploited, Says Family

Breitbart Texas has discovered a Facebook page selling merchandise with slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s image under the guise of supporting the Brian Terry Foundation. Terry’s family, however, says not so fast—stating the page has no connection with the official foundation organized in his memory.

The Facebook page “Project: Honor First” claims to be “directly aligned with the Brian Terry Foundation in an effort to pursue the truth,
