In February of 2023, I wrote an article in which I referenced the book GUN CONTROL IN NAZI OCCUPIED FRANCE: TYRANNY AND RESISTANCE, by author Stephen P. Halbrook. The book details the patriotic French resistance to the Nazi’s forced firearm registration policy and the article I wrote compared it to JB Pritzker’s Protect Illinois Community Act (PICA) firearm registration regulations. As you well know, less than 2% of Illinois FOID card holders participated in this mandatory firearm and accoutrements registration law. [Read more...]

President Biden strayed from his administration’s narrative during his recent State of the Union address, saying, “We’re going to need oil for at least another decade. … And beyond that.” Many of his “Keep It In the Ground” supporters scoffed at the unscripted remarks.

1. July 28, 2021. In explosive comments today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters that President Biden DOES NOT have the authority to cancel student loan debt. “People think that the President of the United States has the power of debt forgiveness.

While spending time in Western Kentucky due to recent weather events, we were lucky to once again watch one of my favorite movies, the 1960 version of “The Magnificent Seven”. Most of you have probably seen it too.
In the movie, “Caldera”, (Eli Wallach) the leader of a band of thugs, regularly leads his band of outlaws into a small Mexican town to take most, but not all, of the provisions of the town inhabitants, a group of cowardly farmers and shop owners.
Eventually, town representatives hire a group of seven American ‘good guys’ to lead the town in their fight against Caldera and his thugs. [Read more...]
