Canadian Sniper sets world record with 2-mile kill shot against ISIS operative

Jun 22, 2017 — Robert Laurie

When it comes to amazing snipers and their even more amazing abilities, we have a new world-record holder.  An unidentified Canadian special forces operative has obliterated the old longest-confirmed-kill record with an astonishing 2-mile shot. The previous longest shot was made by a British sniper at a distance of 8,120 feet or 2,475 meters.

At 11,319 feet, the new record is almost 3,200 feet (or almost 1,100 meters) longer.

From Toronto’s Globe and Mail:

The Canadian Armed Forces confirmed Thursday that a member of Joint Task Force 2 made the record-breaking shot, killing an Islamic State insurgent during an operation in Iraq within the last month.

Call your Democrat Congressmen and let them know you support Nancy Pelosi as House Minority Leader

Jun 22, 2017 — Robert Laurie

In the wake of the Democrats’ costly, humiliating, loss in the Georgia special election, the knives are out for Nancy Pelosi. Rather than blame their platform, their rejected positions, or their radical-left-wing agenda, they’ve chosen to place responsibility for their current predicament on a scapegoat. Many in the Democratic Party have been questioning Pelosi’s leadership, and there are now calls for her to step down as House Minority Leader.

Chris Matthews laments hidden Trump vote and wonders ‘what the hell’ Jon Ossoff was selling

Jun 22, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Like a lot of people, Chris Matthews wants to know why Jon Ossoff was running in the GA06 special election. He wandered into town, was buoyed by a tidal wave of out-of-state left-wing cash, revealed himself to be a guy without a message, and promptly lost. In a way, he was a bit like Hillary Clinton in that no one is entirely sure there was a reason for his candidacy.

Here’s what Matthews had to say:

“It seems to me that there was a lot of progressive hype about a guy who wasn’t running as a progressive, which is another interesting twist to this. He was running on basically, well let’s get together and be normal or something.

I don’t know what the hell he was selling. He wasn’t selling much.”

 

Attacker stabs police officer in Flint, MI airport after yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’

Jun 21, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Flint, Michigan is a city that’s seen more than its share of problems.  From job loss, to the water crisis, to crime, to poverty, the former automotive center has had a rough thirty years.  Now it looks like it will have to add terror attack to its long list of issues.

A short time ago, a man stabbed a police officer in Flint’s Bishop airport after screaming “Allahu Akbar.” The facility was evacuated and the victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where he is in stable condition.

As a witness told the Flint Journal:

Mika and Joe trash Dems for having no message - but they’re wrong.

Jun 21, 2017 — Robert Laurie

That headline might be just a tad misleading. The Morning Joe super-team of Joe and Mika were discussing the Dems’ failure in the GA06 special election, and they each had their opinions about why Ossoff couldn’t get the job done. Both of them got close to being correct but, like Jon Ossoff, they couldn’t quite get across the finish line.  Chalk up another moral victory.

According to Joe, Democrats are spending too much time protesting, and not enough time going door-to-door. As he puts it:

“I’ve been saying all along, if you need to do that, if it makes you feel good, then do that, but understand if you want to change America and you want to change the world, you’re much better off going into districts campaigning for somebody - knocking on doors, handing them fliers, getting into phone banks, calling people, finding people, recruiting candidates - not that look just like you and think just like, but actually fit the district

 

Dems squander over $30 Million on GA06 loss ...err ‘moral victory’

Jun 21, 2017 — Robert Laurie

If you listen to Democrats this morning, you’ll quickly realize that they think there’s a silver lining to last night’s epic loss in the GA06 special election.  The thinking is that things got “close” in a reliably red district, so Dems should look on the bright side. “This,” they claim, “is what progress looks like.”  The scoreboard may not show a victory, but they still think they won a “moral victory.”

That’s fine. I’m all for Democrats who lose elections and win moral victories. They’re my favorite kind of politician, and we’re seeing a lot of them lately.  As Frank Luntz points out:

Russian Su-27 buzzes U.S. Air Force RC-135 recon jet - flies within 5 feet

Jun 20, 2017 — Robert Laurie

One day after the United States downed a Syrian aircraft, prompting a verbal rejoinder from the Russian government, an armed Russian fighter flew dangerously close to a large U.S. recon craft over the Baltic Sea.

From Fox News:

An armed Russian fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Air Force reconnaissance aircraft in the Baltic Sea on Monday, two U.S. officials told Fox News.

The Russian Su-27 jet had air-to-air missiles under its wings and approached the U.S. Air Force RC-135 recon jet “rapidly,” coming within five feet of the American aircraft, the officials said.

WaPo notices that single-payer healthcare would be devastatingly expensive

Jun 20, 2017 — Robert Laurie

The Washington Post Editorial Board begins its most recent healthcare screed with an outright falsehood.

OBAMACARE LOOKS shaky, mostly because Republicans are sabotaging it.

To be clear: Nothing has been sabotaged.  ObamaCare was in freefall before Trump was elected, and Republicans have done very little since to alter its trajectory. ObamaCare is working exactly as it was supposed to, and it’s collapsing because it was intended to collapse.

Watch a former US Special forces soldier run through ISIS gunfire to save a little civilian girl in

Jun 19, 2017 — Robert Laurie

The old media loves to portray the U.S. military as uncaring warmongers running roughshod over the globe.  To them, the United States is always the problem, never the solution.  The truth is that members of the American Armed Forces have a long history of trying to assist local civilians during engagements, and lending aid and comfort is almost always one of their primary goals.

Even after their service is up, many of them become aid workers - dedicating themselves to the effort to help those in harm’s way. You’d never know it if you only listen to the left.

So, when we have a piece of footage like this, we like to make sure you see it. On the streets of Mosul, ISIS snipers had killed multiple civilians in the middle of a wide street. That’s when ex-Green Beret David Eubank saw a little girl moving among the victims.

Colin Kaepernick compares all police to fugitive slave patrols, reminds us why he can’t get a job

Jun 19, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Colin Kaepernick is unemployed. Apparently, large companies - including sports teams - tend to avoid hiring people who’ve proven themselves to be massive PR nightmares.  After all, if having someone on your staff means you spend all your time putting out the media fires they create, that person isn’t going to last very long.  Once word gets out that he’s a “problem employee,” finding a new gig in the same field is going to be tough.

That’s the situation facing Kaepernick, whose woes began woes began when he refused to stand for the national anthem at the beginning of NFL games. Since then, he’s proven that if he can do something to make matters worse, he will.

As The Sporting News reported, Kaepernick decided to return to controversy on Friday.

Trump announces cancellation of ‘terrible & misguided deal w/ the Castro regime’

Jun 16, 2017 — Robert Laurie


If you don’t know my feelings on Obama’s ridiculously lopsided deal with Raul Castro, the man who tried to murder my father-in-law, you can read about it here.  Suffice it to say that the agreement put in place by Barack Obama made absolutely no sense, was on track to achieve absolutely none of its stated goals, and served only to enrich the despots running Cuba.

Today, President Trump announced that he was reversing most of it. As USA Today reports:

Reversing yet another policy move by Barack Obama, President Trump plans to re-institute restrictions on travel to Cuba and U.S. business dealings with entities tied to the Cuban military and intelligence services, officials said Thursday.

Bernie REALLY wants you to know he’s not a Democrat - because they’re losers

Jun 16, 2017 — Robert Laurie

whose supporters... have a tendency... to get violent... - even with each other, wants you to know he’s not a Democrat.  Democrats lost the last election.  He thinks Trump is awful, so they should have won. Despite the fact that Dems nominated the person that Bernie ended up endorsing, he’s doing his best to distance himself from the party.

He’s an “independent,” dontcha know.  He loves that label, because it’s more marketable than “devout socialist.”

Anyway, he’s been making the rounds lately. His appearances may slow down for a bit, since once of his volunteers tried to assassinate multiple prominent Republican congressmen, but prior to that incident he was showing up all over the place.

Vladimir Putin trolls fired FBI director James Comey - in epic fashion

Jun 15, 2017 — Robert Laurie

One gets the idea that Vladimir Putin really enjoys watching Democrats embarrass themselves, and their country, via their asinine witch hunt. Partly, that’s because he’s no friend of the United States, and (like the Dems) he will do - or applaud - pretty much anything that weakens our President. However, you also get the sense that he’s genuinely enjoying the meltdown.  The formerly austere Russian President has turned out to be quite the wisecracker lately.

First, he ripped Democrats for being “shameless losers.”

In response to Alexandria shooting, NYT dredges up false claims about Sarah Palin and Gabby Giffords

Jun 15, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Earlier, I showed you how Chris Matthews was coping with the fact that a hardcore leftist tried to assassinate a wide swath of Republican congressmen.  His reaction was to sympathize with the would-be killer.  Over at the New York Times, the editorial board chose a different course.  They decided to equivocate by dredging up a phony conspiracy theory that blamed Sarah Palin for the Gabrielle Giffords shooting:

They wrote:

Was this attack evidence of how vicious American politics has become? Probably. In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear. Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.

Chris Matthews frets that ‘sadness’ in Alexandria shooter’s life may have caused his ‘wacky behavior

Jun 15, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Democrats know how bad this looks.  The would-be Alexandria assassin is a left-wing true believer.  In terms of his political beliefs (if not his actions) he’s emblematic of the base of their party. His political goals are their political goals, and we’re learning that he enjoyed a steady diet of the same hateful class-warfare rhetoric they use to win elections.

So, of course, they’re trying to spin themselves clear of the idea that one of their own just tried to kill an untold number of Republican congressmen.

That’s impossible, so they’re left with only a few options. The first is to ghoulishly unleash the standard gun control boilerplate. The second is to deflect attention by equivocating between this shooting and others. The third, and most disturbing, is to offer a cursory condemnation of the shooters actions, while sympathizing with his motive.
