"Gun control is the idea that it's better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand."—T.D. Melrose

Excuses, Excuses
(The Feature Article)

Bravo EU!
Bravo EU!

It‘s because most of the other politicians
are part of the “old boys club.” They talk
big, but they won‘t change a thing.


The Impeachable Offenses of Barack Hussein Obama
by Terence James Mason
In 7 parts.

Letters to the Editor
from Sean Gangol, A.X. Perez, Paul Bonneau, and Dave Redick

Excuses, Excuses
by L. Neil Smith
The little revolver is theoretically the same size as a S&W Model 36, or Chief's Special. It reminds me strongly of the .32 snubby Archie Goodwin drops into his jacket pocket when he's working murder cases for Nero Wolfe.

Trump is Right About Women
by Nic Leobold
As a great rabbi once famously said, “When you're right, you're right.” I would go further and say, Trump is right, and he's right again, about at least two things. I'm writing this article today because women have a major problem, and far from the popular rhetoric spouted by Hillary Clinton and the Mainstream Media and establishment, Trump gets it pretty right on this one. And Trump deserves credit for at least a few things.

Lone Star Planet by H. Beam Piper & J.J. McGuire: a Book Review
by Jeff Fullerton
I became a fan of the SF writer H.Beam Piper in my college days in the early 1980s when I discovered and read his novel: The Uller Uprising. It had a very impressive cover of a man in full NBC suit cradling a rifle and a mushroom cloud of an atomic explosion in the background. And contained an equally impressive story of a military commander by the name of Von Schlicten who puts down a revolt by a race of four- armed lizard-like aliens with a silicon based biology on a far off colonial planet of the Terran Federation. In this work Piper demonstrated his talent as a world builder in his descriptions of the planet Uller and another world that plays an important role in the plot.

E-Book Round Up: Anarquia
by Sean Gangol
Anarquia: An Alternate History of the Spanish Civil War by Brad Linaweaver and J. Kent Hastings, is one of the first books that I read on my Kindle Fire, since most of the E-Books that I read prior were either on my Nook or on the Kindle PC format. What attracted me to this book was Brad Linaweaver, the creator of the web series, “Silicone Assassin” and the author of the most excellent novel, The Moon is Ice an alternative history novel of World War II that has a major libertarian twist to it.

Bill Bennett On Why The GOP And Elites Want To Kill Donald Trump
by Bill Bennett
They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a Republican or Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump. Don‘t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few. It‘s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it‘s in all of their interests to protect one another. It‘s one for all and all for one.

The London Olympics Opening Ceremony:
A Grotesque and Sinister Pantomime

by Sean Gabb
Note: I will avoid the Olympic opening ceremony set, I believe, for tomorrow. However, here is my review of the last one, in London. the last sentence may have been prophetic, so far as the grotesque and sinister pantomime laid on by our ruling class may have led, directly or indirectly, to the outcome of the EU Referendum.

Weaponizing Grief
by J. Neil Schulman
I think many of us who followed the criminal and civil trials of O.J. Simpson will never forget Fred Goldman, father of the slain Ronald Goldman, standing alongside Simpson‘s L.A. County criminal prosecutors as an accuser; later, when the criminal prosecution failed, personally suing O.J. Simpson in a second, civil trial. Ronald Lyle Goldman died a few weeks short of his 26th birthday.
