BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today reacted to the announcement from anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg that he would finance his own presidential campaign if he decides to run by advising the former New York mayor that “the White House and our Constitutional Rights are not for sale.”

Artificial bug eyes

Artificial bug eyes
Single lens eyes, like those in humans and many other animals, can create sharp images, but the compound eyes of insects and crustaceans have an edge when it comes to peripheral vision, light sensitivity and motion detection. That’s why scientists are developing artificial compound eyes to give sight to autonomous vehicles and robots, among other applications. Now, a report in ACS Nano describes the preparation of bioinspired artificial compound eyes using a simple low-cost approach.

Tired of Sardines?

... then try Rollmops, Surströmming, or Sushi, especially that tuna kind of Sushi! You’ll love it—until you’ll see the bill!

As Fox News reported “Self-described Japanese ‘Tuna King’ Kiyoshi Kimura paid a record $3 million for a 612-pound (278-kilogram) Bluefin tuna at the first new year’s [2019] auction in Tokyo on Saturday.” After trimming the skin etc., what’s left of the fish must cost the “Tuna King” around $ 6,000 for a mere pound of edible tuna.

How the Border Crisis Caused a Crisis 2,500 Miles Away in Maine

How the Border Crisis Caused a Crisis 2,500 Miles Away in Maine
When Americans think about border security, they usually imagine the floods of migrants crossing the border and showing up in Texas and Arizona. The illegal migrant crisis is at its worst in places like El Paso where gang members released by a broken immigration system swarm the streets. Limited border fencing had previously helped sharply cut crime rates in El Paso, but it doesn’t end in El Paso.

2,500 miles away, Portland, Maine is experiencing a crisis that redefines the nature of the problem and whom it impacts. Illegal border invaders aren’t just from this continent. Anyone who can fly into South America and make their way up to Mexico has a shot at crossing the border and invading America.

NERC: Rapid Retirement of Coal and Nuclear Units Could Cause Grid Instability

NERC is responsible for reliability of the electric grid
A December 2018 report by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) indicates that acceleration of coal and nuclear plant retirements could result in black outs. NERC is an international nonprofit agency that examines and promotes grid reliability among utility systems in the United States and Canada. The agency released its Generation Retirement Scenario—a 44-page report—that found an aggressive rate of coal-fired and nuclear plant retirements could put the electric grid reliability at risk. Grid reliability is the ability of the system to deliver electricity as it is demanded. If electric utilities are not able to meet demand at any given time, a blackout could result. The retiring coal and nuclear power plants generate electricity 24/7, but wind and solar units that are replacing them produce power only intermittently—only when the wind blows and the sun shines—and natural gas units replacing them may not have sufficient infrastructure to ensure availability of the needed fuel.

Preventing Deaths from Influenza

Preventing Deaths from Influenza, Vitamin C daily, Medi-C Plus
Death from influenza is always tragic. But it is particularly so when it occurs at a young age. This year an increasing number of influenza cases is being seen in emergency centers. And, as usual, thousands of North Americans will die from this seasonal disease. But are some dying needlessly?

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the U.S. reports that, for the first time in 13 years, every state reports an increase in influenza caused by an aggressive virus.

Nothing More “Immoral” or “Racist” than the Democrat Wall Keeping The Citize

Nothing More Immoral or Racist than the Democrat Wall Keeping The Citizenry Out
The Wall we rarely if ever hear about is the impregnable one built by the Democrats to keep their own citizenry out.

The wall protecting Democrats is held in place by 95% of the mainstream and social media, the Entertainment Industry, education institutions, sporting world and on and on.

Criticism of the Democrats cannot find its way over, under or around the Democrat built-in protection wall while Democrat and media criticism of President Donald Trump has been served up every day since Jan. 20, 2017 and rages on.

Socialist Democrats and their Illegal Alien Brethren

Socialist Democrats and their Illegal Alien Brethren
On a print from 1886 of the Statue of Liberty someone wrote, “There is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development. But those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.”

Times have changed fundamentally since 1886. Liberal Americans and the socialist Democrats of today are fighting the rest of the country to remove our borders, to disarm law enforcement, to pay for illegal aliens’ free healthcare, education, housing, voting rights, and every other benefit American citizens have.

Millennials devoid of common sense and their radical socialist representatives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) are openly calling for transforming our country into a Venezuela. It seems surreal that American citizens would want to live in the Twilight Zone of globalism or in a bad zombie apocalypse movie they so enjoy.

Are Pelosi/Schumer “Nebulous Namby Pambys”?

Are Pelosi/Schumer “Nebulous Namby Pambys”?
Have you listened to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer lately, as they offer their reasons why a southern border wall is immoral and a waste of taxpayer money?  Do you think they could be tagged with the sobriquet of “Nebulous Namby Pambys”?  They offer no meaningful alternatives to stemming the flow of illegal immigration over our porous southern border, the flow of murderous drugs that is killing many of our, mostly young, citizens, and the flow of human trafficking.  The Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of the term “Nebulous Namby Pambys” is as follows:  “Nebulous” - indistinct, vague, and hazy.  “Namby Pamby” - pathetically weak and indecisive.  No matter how you slice it, those terms fit these two feckless politicians, don’t you agree?

Newly inaugurated Gov. Gavin Newsom has pledged to make his home state of California “a sanctuary to all who seek it” in direct defiance of President Trump’s drive to secure the nation’s border with Mexico and enforce U.S. immigration laws.

California’s grossly unconstitutional obstruction of federal immigration laws is about to get ramped up, Newsom’s speech suggests. The state already has unprecedented sanctuary laws on its books that shield its 2.4 million illegal aliens from U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE). Federal prosecutors are considering filing criminal charges against elected officials harboring illegal aliens in sanctuary jurisdictions, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee a year ago.

America at a Rubicon Moment & MAGA Isn’t Enough

America at a Rubicon Moment & MAGA Isn’t Enough
Author and speaker Os Guinness knows America is divided, but he has a different line of demarcation than some other cultural observers.  During an appearance at the Family Research Council in Washington to promote his new book: “Last Call for Liberty”, Guinness said the division is the difference between those who understand “the Republic viewed through the lens of the US revolution and those who view it through the lens of the French revolution.”

It’s a distinction between a successful revolution that was “profoundly biblical” here in the US and a revolution that was an “anti–biblical” failure in France.
Strangely enough, a rebooted French Revolution has seen remarkable success here. It’s now 50 years since German radical Rudi Dutschke called for revolutionaries to abandon violence and instead make a “long march through the institutions” and take over from the inside. Fortunately for the left their “long march” coincided exactly with conservative’s “long snooze.”

“Who dis?” “Who dat”—WHO CARES?!

Who dis? Who dat—WHO CARES?!
Twitter talk, often as not so much online baby prattle, is destined to come ricocheting back on rookie New York rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who fired off a juvenile Twitter response:  ‘New party, who dis?’ after 76-year-old Joe Lieberman made it known in a Fox Business Network interview that he feared her brand of high-tax socialism could doom the party’s chances for long-term dominance in Congress.

When you’re 29-going-on18 and your critic is 76 years old, the pickings to go after him are easy.

The Democrat Freak Show has Begun

The Democrat Freak Show has Begun
Now that the mid-terms are over, and the new Congress has started, political observers have already started to focus on the 2020 presidential campaign. Every election cycle it begins earlier, especially in this case, because the Democrats and their supporters in the media are obsessed with defeating President Donald Trump.

Border crisis dictates (un)civil discourse

Border crisis dictates (un)civil discourse
Doubletalk has become the hallmark of democrat dialogue, hereby dubbed “DC” to cover both the place of origin and as an acronym for deceit and what once indicated civil exchange of ideas, discourse.

What came out of democrat leaders’ mouths after the president’s common sense appeal, January 8, 2019, for penny ante funding to secure our southern border was and continues to be “DC.” Nowhere in the comments of recycled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and minority leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, has there been any give when it comes to resolving their “manufactured crisis” that they try to paste onto President Trump’s back with every word escaping their lips.

Migrants from Terrorist Nations Try to Enter U.S. Via Mexico at Record Rates—300% Hike in Bang

Migrants from Terrorist Nations Try to Enter U.S. Via Mexico at Record Rates—300% Hike in Bangladesh
Federal agents along the southern border routinely encounter individuals from terrorist nations and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) considers them one of the top threats to the United States, according to a congressional report made public this month. Titled “Stopping Terrorist Travel Through Illicit Pathways to the Homeland,” the document outlines the findings of a lengthy investigation involving Special Interest Aliens (SIA) by the House Homeland Security Committee.

SIA’s are individuals from countries outside the western hemisphere—mostly the Middle East, Asia and Africa—that pose a national security risk to the U.S. In Laredo, Texas alone there was an astounding 300% increase in immigrants from Bangladesh, a south Asian Islamic country well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).
