On the eve of President Donald Trump's Inauguration, the US Army announced the Sig Sauer P320 pistol as the replacement for the Beretta M9 as the Army's standard sidearm.  The Army's Beretta M9 has no shortage of critics since even before it replaced the venerable .45 Auto Colt 1911 pistol in 1985.  Now, 32...

WINNING:  Trump stands poised to nominate over half of federal judges in next four years

The Second Amendment seems in great hands.  Ballotpedia (think wikipedia for political information, without the liberal bias) has a report that says Trump will probably end up appointing just over half of federal judges during his first term.  Because Harry Reid invoked the "nuclear option" to allow a simple majority of the US Senate...

PREDETERMINED CONCLUSIONS:  Obama DOJ report on Chicago Police deeply flawed

We see the light at the end of the tunnel after an eight year death march under Barack Obama.  His Justice Department "probe" of the Chicago Police Department?  Nothing but garbage.  It is almost as if Loretta Lynch's favorite radicals wrote a damning report, and then she sent a few investigators to get some...
