Why I carry a Springfield XD-45 Tactical

Why I carry a Springfield XD-45 Tactical

You can go to ANY gun page and start a hell of an argument by asking, “Which is best, a 9mm, a .40 or a .45?” and damn if it doesn’t get worse when you ask *which brand*.

Most folks know that in addition to political blogging I also do articles on the Second Amendment and firearms. I’m not trying to start a *brand* or caliber war, this is just my opinion and observations from years of carrying a gun. I am not trying to start a 1911 vs every other type of .45 thread here and I am NOT trying to change anyones mind in regards to what they carry and why, and I hope my readers don’t either. If you have preferences, and we ALL do, use the comments section to voice those preferences and opinions, but please, no *flame wars*, comments of that nature WILL be deleted by me, regardless of WHO makes them. Let’s keep this one fair, honest and SANE.

Preferences my friends, not a tirade about which caliber has the most this or that, which gun will shoot underwater, unless you do a lot of underwater shooting, just tell us what you prefer and why. The balance, the fit, a comfort factor and so forth.

I have carried a .45 for 42 years now, most of that time I carried a Colt m1911 Mark IV Series 70 and I dearly love that pistol, but today I carry a Springfield XD-45 Tactical and for me, in MY opinion, for my wants and needs, the XD does everything I want to do.

Is it better than any other new style .45? Who really knows, for me it’s all about personal preference anyway, that’s why there are so many different brands on the shelves.

I will say this; I have seen more than a few 1911 guys get really *pissy* about people carrying a high capacity .45, telling the owners of said Hi-Cap guns to *Stop carrying that *tactical Tupperware*, all you need is a 1911 and you need to learn how to shoot it* and I can tell you right now, those guys, and their *learn to shoot* thing, are just about as full of BULLSHIT as a body can be.   Continue reading

Trump administration considers mobilizing as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants

Has the Media been caught in a lie? A bold, open-faced lie?

UPDATE: The White House is denying the Associated Press report that the administration is considering the use of National Guard troops to round up people in the U.S. illegally.

According to a pool report, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said “That is 100% not true. It is false. It is irresponsible to be saying this.”

Trump administration considers mobilizing as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants

The Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press.

The 11-page document calls for the unprecedented militarization of immigration enforcement as far north as Portland, Oregon, and as far east as New Orleans, Louisiana.

Four states that border on Mexico are included in the proposal – California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas – but it also encompasses seven states contiguous to those four – Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. SOURCE

Activating the National Guard to round up ILLEGALS? An excellent idea in MY opinion, IF this is true and not some *made up* FAKE NEWS BS from AP and an ABC affiliate looking for a story that can be foisted off on the American public in order to garner some  attention.  Continue reading

When does this swamp get Drained Mr. Trump?

When does this swamp get Drained Mr. Trump?

The biggest problem we face in America today is NOT radical Islam, what we face, the biggest danger of all, is those left-overs that still hang on in the Trump administration, those that retain their loyalty to the Obama regime and to Obama’s grand puppetmaster, George Soros, and feed the American media with as much secret, classified and sensitive information as possible. Obama minions.

The Obamanites still in the United States government need to be the initial gulp we hear as the swamp begins to drain. Anyone that would divulge classified information is a waste of skin and air and are truly the definition of *The Enemy Within*. 

The next biggest threat we face is the News Media itself.

What we have is a national news syndicate that is so mired in the mud, so blinded by their loyalty to Obama and Soros, that they can’t tell the truth in any way, shape form or fashion.

We have a media that makes up stories, outright LIES, and foists them off on the American people via FAKE NEWS sites that have been set up by the Mainstream Media themselves and covertly run by them, the media themselves, as they take real news stories and then re-write them in such a sick and twisted manner that the Liberal Left, and sadly, a great many on the Right just jump right on the bandwagon and eat up every word.

The media doesn’t do their job anymore, they don’t report the NEWS. They seem to be interested in only making brief mention of the NEWS and then using that brief mention to create a platform that they can use to present a tirade of Anti-American rhetoric and Anti-Trump lies.Then we have what in my mind is the biggest threat of all; the GOP and Dems themselves.  

The Dems are naturally going to be against everything Pres. Trump says, much like Conservatives were with Barack Obama. We believed that every word he stuttered, uh, uttered, was a lie and that he was speaking the words he had been programed to speak by his handlers, Soros and Company.  

The Democrats hate Donald J. Trump, but apparently a great many within the GOP itself hate him and want to see him fail as well. Just the other day I posted this marvelous piece from my friend Dekare entitled Oh how They Hate Donald Trump. If you haven’t read it I would seriously recommend that you do, it’s full of truth, and TRUTH is all we have on our side.   Continue reading

A Word to the Criminal Migrant

A Word to the Criminal Migrant

If you haven’t seen this video by Pat Condell you really need to watch. If you support Pres. Donald Trump and his idea of vetting immigrants and stopping the illegal surge, if you want to see America great again, watch this 10 minute video and then KNOW; we either do this the RIGHT way and we STOP the invasion by radical Islam or our once great America goes down the crapper just like the EU has.

If so much as ONE PERSON in America is hurt by a *refugee*, of any type, and from any nation, these 3 jackasses pictured below are to blame, William Canby Jr., Richard Clifton and Michelle Friedland, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals 3-some that heard the case and took a stand against Pres. Trump and the American people.   Continue reading
