Time’s editors showed in July 1994 that they believed their job was not to uncover the truth but to provide political cover to Democrats in Washington. It’s only gotten worse since then, but I believe this incident formally marks the end of the “mainstream media” as we once knew it. Like many other countries in Europe and elsewhere, we now have a politicized media in the United States. But unlike other countries, in all but a few cases our media refuses to acknowledge its ideological affiliation. So added to bias, you have hypocrisy.

Ex-Time reporter: The day I knew journalism had died in America
[It may have been the day Timmerman recognized journalism was a propaganda arm of the Democrats but that kind of crap was happening long before that. I have heard first hand stories from the late 1970s. It probably wasn’t new then. I suspect journalism has always been biased and hypocritical.—Joe]
The Right bemoans its oppression, as Jonathan Last notes regarding the poor downtrodden suburbs...
So I’m sure that this is undeniably true for some swaths of Republican voters. If you’re living on government assistance in a Kentucky holler that’s been hollowed out by jobs being shipped overseas and the flood of opioids, I get it. I mean, I’d argue that you are misallocating blame, but I get that it feels like you’re living in a sectarian failed state.And the Left is oppressed, too. For instance, being asked to turn down your stereo on an Ivy League campus is racist.
What I don’t understand is the people who feel like they’re living in a sectarian failed state while driving Ford F-150 Raptors, or taking their boats out to join a parade, or buying up tens of thousands of dollars of tactical gear.

So, the FBI served a search warrant on the Mar-A-Lago home of Donald Trump. The premise for the warrant seems to be some documents that the National Archives claim may be classified. Many on the right are outraged, using this as just another example of the political polarization in the country, and another example of the FBI harassing political opponents of the current administration.
Some on the left think that if Donald Trump is convicted of a felony, it will disqualify him from running for another term. I have read the Constitution and see no such impediment. I'm not a lawyer, and I may well have missed something.
I am concerned about the political weaponization of the FBI and the DOJ. The Biden administration seems to have little reticence in jailing their political enemies. These folks are setting up a political climate that they might not want to live in, in the coming years. The pendulum always swings back.

On my recent trip to Warsaw, I spent some time filming guns in the collection of the Polish Army Museum. In an effort to create something of a library of museum tours, I made sure to take some time to film a short virtual tour of the exhibits for you – note that I did this after the museum had closed, so there is nobody else in the halls.
Also note that the museum is in the process of slowly moving to a new location, so some of their exhibits are not on display (notably material form the 19th century). They do still have a full Winger Hussar on his mount, though! Outside the main building is a vehicle park with a very cool assortment of armor and aircraft, but the inclement weather prevented me from filming that (sorry).
If you find yourself in Warsaw, it is definitely worth stopping in to see the museum.I found the sections on Polish underground manufacturing and the Warsaw Uprising particularly unique. This museum may not have the popular awareness of the dedicated Warsaw Uprising Museum, but it has artifacts that are every bit as good (if not better, but you didn’t hear me say that…).

Of course I include maps, pictures, and videos as appropriate (Gatling Gun in use, machine tools in action for American Industrial Revolution), the opening scene of Glory, the Battle of Cowpens from The Patriot, Washington's inauguration from John Adams. Stirring drama that tell the stories in ways both educational and entertaining. A surprisingly reverent and respectful rap version of "The Ride of Paul Revere."

Thanks to Steve for sharing this particular news item. Once more, we see the evil hand of government in causing and prolonging human suffering – and in killing people. This time, in dealing with the scourge of Alzheimer’s disease.
It was a common theme in science fiction back in the late 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. The post-apocalyptic mob lynching the poor, innocent, knowledge-seeking scientists because it was science that created the nuclear weapons and other devices that destroyed the world.
That meme shows its age in our era. For the past two-and-a-half years we have been begged and commanded to “follow the science” and time and time again. Even while it has been demonstrated that “science” has not had anything to do with the Lockdown and the mandates and the so-called vaccines and all the rest of the Pandemic Panic. At least not real science – a rational search for facts and understanding of how creation works. Not real science: rather, “government science.”

I could tell you that a zebra is a carnivore but I'd be lion.
A commenter asks a question we get all the time in CFDA shooting.
Does shooting wax bullets extensively cause any issues with the bore? I imagine wax is easier to remove and clean out than lead and/or copper.
Wax does foul the bore, and competitive shooters clean the bore about every 20 shots. However, the common solvents for lead and copper don't work very well on wax. So, we have developed our practice to match the problem. Hoppe's bore solvent is worthless for wax.
Brake cleaner, like you can buy at the auto parts store (or the Dollar Store) works well for wax. As does carb cleaner. Some people use WD-40, which seems to do as well as anything.
A fouled bore is not as accurate as a clean bore, and wax tends to foul faster than lead. Much faster. A competitive round is generally 6-8 shots, so every 3rd round, go run a brush through the bore.
What idiot prohibitionists can never seem to get in their heads about racism is that judging someone’s worth based on the group they were born into, instead of by their words and actions as individuals, is flat-out collectivism. The only people who do that are collectivists. And we see Busse trying to do that here. For a guy who is trying so hard to present himself as “woker than thou” and holding the moral high ground, that’s pretty contemptible. But at least the paycheck’s steady. [More]

You got to hand it to the police this time around. They responded within a couple minutes to a summer camp from which they had received a call about an active shooter and they quickly terminated the threat with extreme prejudice (nothing racial implied although I am sure the sacks of shit at BLM will say otherwise because the shooter was black).
There are other good guys, other than the police that is. One of them took immediate action, of an unknown type at the time I write this, to confront the shooter prior to police arriving. As he confronted the alleged bad guy, other camp staff immediately moved the children to safety behind locked doors. Meanwhile, the alleged shooter reportedly fired at least one shot inside the camp.
When the cops got there - reportedly within only 2 minutes of receiving a 911 call, they immediately entered, sought out the shooter, found the shooter in the gym reportedly where children were present and engaged & shot him. The alleged shooter wound up dying later at a local hospital. More at ...

In Cowboy Fast Draw, one of the rules is that for a major, titled match, the host club is responsible for providing ammo for the entire shoot. We all use .45 Colt revolvers, so it's all one caliber. At a major match, everyone shoots the same ammo, which levels the playing field.
Our ammo is specialty ammunition. We generally shoot wax bullets in cases that have been modified to accept a 209 shotgun primer. That primer provides sufficient propellant to discharge the wax bullet. It is easy to reload. The only equipment that is really needed is a human thumb, and most of us have thrums. However, because it it specialty ammo, you can't buy it over the counter. Belle and I have 5000 pieces of this brass. Our cousin's club in Texas has 5000 pieces of this brass. We help each other out, so that we can have 10.000 rounds of loaded ammo at the start of a big match.
At Louisiana State last month, we expended 3551 rounds of our ammo, and 3900 rounds of our sister club's ammo. If my math is correct, we shot 7451 shots in a 3-day match with 88 shooters. I tell you all this because we are panning a big shoot next year, a tri-St...

In their zeal to keep the gay community from being stigmatized by the monkeypox outbreak making its way through the gay community, political health departments and the gay community itself are setting themselves up for failure.

Gay men with monkeypox are indicating that they had sex with upwards of nine different men in short periods of time.
This virus is starting to trickle out to the larger community by either bisexual men or by men who are not being careful with kids in their care.

In these early days of august, I'm seeing commentary on the final days of World War II, concerning the moral and military necessity of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that hastened the end of the war.
Hiroshima was bombed on August 5th. Nagasaki on August 9th. We generally consider VJ day as August 15th.
It is my opinion that the decision tree that led to the use of atomic weapons has to be viewed through the lens of the history that existed on the ground at that time. The world was certainly awakened to the horror of nuclear war. Just as the world was awakened to the horrors of fire-bombing major cities. There is a lot of horror in war.

Ten years ago, an experienced handgun instructor contacted me to help him reconstruct the events of an accidental shooting. This instructor shot himself while reholstering after doing a demonstration during a basic concealed handgun class.
I know what you are thinking….
“He shouldn’t have had his finger on the trigger when he was putting the gun in the holster.”
“I bet he was using a Blackhawk Serpa holster.”
Nope. Neither was true.
He is an experienced instructor and competitive shooter, receiving professional training from the best in the business. He has good weapon handling skills. I have seen him draw and shoot and know that he doesn’t casually keep his finger on the trigger while holstering. It was a somewhat baffling dilemma. And that’s why he contacted me.
He told me:
The Browning High Power story begins with a French 1921 request for a new military pistol. FN engineer Dieudonné Saive developed a double stack, single feed magazine and John Browning adapted a Browning 1903 pistol to use it, and this was sent to France for consideration. This pistol worked well enough, but the French trials board requested changes…and they would continue requesting changes and more trials for the next decade.
By 1931, FN felt that the current iteration of the pistol – while still not meeting all the French requirements – was good enough to stand on its own as a service pistol for the Belgian Army and other clients. They named it the “Grand Rendement” (High Efficiency) and began marketing it. The Belgian Army showed a definite interest, and bought 1,000 pistols for field trials, based on the prototype example we have ...

A new study of cities over 200,000 people shows a surprising list of cities. Here is the top 10.
Welcome everyone to the TFB Armorer’s Bench! As mentioned in the little blurb, this series will focus on a lot of home armorer and gunsmith activities. In this article sponsored by Wheeler, Tipton, Caldwell, and Frankford Arsenal, we’ll show how to completely assemble an AR15 upper receiver. Previously, I covered the disassembly of the lower receiver, bolt carrier group, and upper receiver. Last […]

Speaking outside the Royal London hospital, Hollie Dance said he had “fought right until the very end”.
August 7th, 1933 was the birthday of Jerry Pournelle. He, along with Larry Niven authored the survivalist classic Lucifer’s Hammer.

Many prepared individuals have an alternate living location. It might be called a “retreat,” a “bug-out house” or simply their “vacation home.” Perhaps in a “safer” location or in a state with more favorable legal climate on important features of self-provision and security. This alternate living location will typically be stocked with valuable implements and provisions, likely including firearms, ammunition, cash, precious metals and other valuables. Sitting vacant much of the time, it might become a lucrative target even in “normal times” before the national situation has even significantly deteriorated. A thief entering the vacant home would have ample time …
The latest meme created by JWR: To share this, you can find it here: https://www.kapwing.com/videos/62eadab5ba842000814b0fdf Meme Text: At First, It Was Pride Day, Then Pride Week, and Then Pride Month If You Do Not Display Sufficient Enthusiasm, Then There Will Be Consequences!

A feminist’s complaint: Pride month is no longer a joyful celebration, but a symbol of something dark.
“Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also? For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should …
When I was going to college thermodynamics was dreaded by many engineering students. Apparently, it involved concepts difficult for many to grasp. For some reason it made perfect sense to me. Compared to most of my other engineering classes it was easy. I got a very high A in the class. That was decades ago, and I have forgotten a lot of it but I do have a good recollection of heat transfer.
That bright engineering students find it challenging means it should come as no surprise that people with little or no training in the subject would have misconception about how certain thermodynamic related physical phenomena occur. There have been many times on this blog I have made statements, or linked to articles, which described perfectly obvious observations. Some commenters declared them obliviously false. I didn’t want to take the time to explain why they were in error. It was just too much work for that particular situation.
It is now time to attempt explain certain things to people in terms and examples that will help them understand the physics of heat transfer. There are oth...
The question has appeared in various forums over the years. A recent version goes:
I found an unfired bullet (live round) in my backyard. How do I dispose of it?
Call 911, ask for the EOD (Explosives Ordinance Disposal) Unit to be sent immediately. Evacuate the kids from the house, warn your neighbors away, block the end of your street with your vehicles, and crouch behind them until the police arrive.
Or, just pick the round up, and drop it in your trash can.
Whether the original question is sincere or simply a way to instigate mischief, it displays both a lack of knowledge and an effort to promote that condition, doesn’t it?
It is illustrative of what we find in so many fields today: health and other sciences, religion, politics, economics, and business. In a world and multiple societies more than ever filled with (supposedly) highly-educated people, we find incredible ignoran...
Every day we run an article called Photo Of The Day with some of the coolest pictures from the world of firearms. Today we have images from Fuerzas Comando 2022 on offer, with Brazilian snipers. Fuerzas Comando is a Special Operation skills competition and a senior leader seminar supported by SOCSOUTH. The competition enhances SOF […]
In the London Spectator, Neil Clark defies contemporary political correctness by recommending the classic hunting books of maneater-eliminator par excellence Jim Corbett.
I was reminded of Corbett and his wonderful books when reading last week that human-assaulting tigers are once again on the prowl in Nepal, with 104 attacks and 62 people killed in the past three years. Conservation efforts have seen tiger numbers rise three-fold since 2010, but with that good news comes the bad news of increased danger to humans. In March a tiger believed to have...
Belle and I have played with chicken fried steak for as long as we've been together, and we think we have perfected the recipe. It's a process and because you asked, we'll talk about it.
First of all, the steak. We use "cube steaks". Little steaks we get at the grocer that has been run through the tenderizer. You could buy a thin steak and pound it with a mallet to t...
Good afternoon everyone and welcome back to TFB’s Silencer Saturday brought to you by Yankee Hill Machine, manufacturers of the YHM R9 multi-host suppressor.
