A majority of veterans taking part in a new research study says that the cost and burden of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan outweigh any successes or progress made in either conflict.
A Pew Research Center report published Wednesday states that 64% -- or almost two-thirds -- of veterans polled in a new survey said the Iraq war "was not worth fighting," and 58% said the same about the war in…

Defenders of the right to bear arms vigorously observe that the Second Amendment is the constitutional provision that ensures the ongoing viability of those freedoms guaranteed by the First deemed by many to be of a more noble or loftier character. Those with their vision clouded with aspirations of how they would like the world to be rather than how it actually is often snidely respond that a level of moral…

Today is Independence Day, a day when we remember who we are as a nation and what we stand for.
OK, most people just cookout and watch things explode in the sky, but some of us tend to think about the important stuff as well. You know what I mean, things like the right to keep and bear arms (naturally) and freedom of speech.…

Not since the 1972 discovery that George McGovern’s vice presidential pick, Thomas Eagleton, had been hospitalized and given electroshock treatments have the Democrats had a worse week than the one we just concluded.
Because Democrats live on social media and watch CNN, they don’t know this yet…
But they had a catastrophic week — hoo, boy,…

Marvel movie director Joss Whedon celebrated July 4th with a warning that President Donald Trump is planning to steal the 2020 presidential election “by armed force” with the backing of “illegal militias.”
In a tweet sarcastically celebrating Independence Day, Joss Whedon also claimed that Trump’s “fascist” administration was backed by “illegal militias”…

Former Texas congressman Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke claimed the Trump administration is "gunning for war in Iran" after the administration pointed to evidence that the Iranians are responsible for a spate of recent attacks on civilian oil tankers.
During an appearance on PBS NewsHour Thursday, O'Rourke would not say whether he believes the U.S. government's assessment of Iran's…

Why do Democrats support small businesses grouping together to cut costs on retirement plans but oppose them doing so for health insurance plans?
That's the question small business owners across the country are asking after the Democrats passed significant retirement legislation last month that allows small businesses to band together in association…

They’re wrong about everything. This applies to the wider liberal media, but it especially applies to the environmental Left that has been preaching doomsday since Earth Day was created. The appalling condescension from this crew, despite peddling straight trash for years is exceedingly entertaining. It’s great because you know what the ending is—these folks eating it…hard. We had global…Continue

YouTube is facing a new wave of criticism after their updated hate speech rules banning videos that promote Nazi ideology or Holocaust denial were put into effect in a way that resulted in educational videos about World War II and the Holocaust being blocked as well.
A report by The Guardian interviewed several British history teachers who had seen their video channels featuring archival films from…

Memorial day 2019 started out as a normal day at eRockets we started early to get packages ready to be out the door the next day. John came in at 4am to get started and I showed up at 9am to take care of concerns and open the door for shoppers and builders to spend part of their day here. Joe S was here most of the day and Joe says Murphy follows him around a lot. As soon as Joe left the…Continue

You won’t read about this in any history book. It didn’t occur on some field of battle.
As Forrest Gump said, “The best place to start is at the beginning.”
George Ferrocarril and I first met due to a mutual interest in trains. I heard him tell another that he was in the Air Force. So when I could I asked him when he served. He told me he was stationed at Griffiss AFB. I asked him when. I was there at the same time. A friendship started.
George and I didn’t work that far…Continue
A few weeks back, CNN bought out around one hundred employees. This came on the heels of rumors of major layoffs coming to CNN. At the time, even though it was obvious why those employees were being bought out (i.e. a precursor to forced layoffs), the liberal news network got very defensive about people suggesting they were having issues.
CNN’s Brian Stelter did what he always does, which is to play the role of Baghdad Bob for Mark Zucker.
As I wrote at the time,…Continue

AG Barr outsmarted Robert Mueller and his ‘pitbull‘ Andrew Weissmann to end the Russia Hoax. And, he did this all in one weekend.
Here’s how he did it.
One of the first things that Bill Barr did after being appointed President Trump’s new Attorney General on Valentine’s Day in 2019, was to meet with Robert Mueller and his team. Barr stated that he and Mueller met a couple weeks after his appointment –
Barr, in testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee,…Continue

CTV of Vancouver reported that numerous flyers had been posted at a local park which read, “Many Muslims live in this area and dogs are considered filthy in Islam. Please keep your dogs on a leash and away from the Muslims who live in this community.”
The city’s mayor was questioned about the signs by CTV and said they had not been issued by the city. However, he said “Whether they were produced by a well-meaning member of the Muslim community or by someone…
Federal rule ends a union's ability to involuntarily take money from home health care givers
By Patrick J. Wright
Today, due to a newly minted federal rule, the rest of the United States finally joins Michigan in ending the home health care dues skim, whereby Medicaid grants meant to fund the care of the elderly and disabled were being diverted to unions. In its 2014 Harris v. Quinn decision, the U.S. Supreme Court held that requiring mandatory dues or fees from these…Continue

The first U.S.-flag laker to be built this century was commissioned this week and figures to be completed by mid-2022. The new "river-class" vessel will be built to transit the Great Lakes and service customers in some of the smaller harbors found in the rivers connecting the lakes.
Commissioned by Interlake Steamship Company, based outside Cleveland, the 639-foot carrier capable of hauling 28,000 gross tons will be built in Sturgeon Bay, Wis., by Fincantieri Bay…

Former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said on Friday that the thing he was most proud of about the Obama administration was that there was "not one single whisper of scandal."
"The thing I'm proudest of is we, coincidentally, we were each in a different part of the country and we were each talking to groups of people that were being televised. On the same day, purely coincidentally, we were asked what are you proudest of from…

Law enforcement, vets disapprove of Murphy's immigration policies.

A petition to recall Gov. Phil Murphy (D.) was approved by the New Jersey Division of Elections after months of delays, and organizers are now mobilizing to collect enough signatures for a recall election to remove him over what they say are his misguided and radical policies.
Somerset County resident Terry Beck, one of three women behind the grassroots effort, told the Washington Free Beacon…

The Supreme Court’s conservative majority appears to be taking President Trump’s side on his administration’s plan to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
Liberals went berserk after Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross announced last year that the 2020 census will include a question on citizenship.
As expected, the Democrats and several ultra liberal advocacy groups aren’t taking this imminent victory for the President well.
