REMEMBERING MIDWAY

A Decisive Battle Too Many Have Forgotten
By Harold Hutchison

Seventy-two years ago today, in a span of five minutes, American dive bombers turned the tide of World War II in the Pacific Theater near Midway by fatally damaging three Japanese carriers. Yet, if you were to do a “man on the street” interview similar to those done on late-night talk shows, how many Americans would have heard of the Battle of Midway?

PANDORA'S BOX!

By Rusty Bradley

I was a tactical operations center chief when Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked off his firebase.  The entire room held its breath as we read the message, an American soldier was missing. Phones were abuzz and video conferences under way as preparation for contingency operations to support the search were already underway. There would be no limit in the effort to determine the best way to support the search for the missing American.

FAMILY OF FALLEN SOLDIER INVOKES BENGHAZI

Did Obama Lie About Search for Bergdahl?
By Harold Hutchison

The controversy surrounding the release of Bowe Bergdahl has continued to explode as the family of at least one Soldier killed in Afghanistan claims that the Obama Administration lied about the circumstances leading to his death, comparing it to the Administration’s portrayal of the 11 September, 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi.

Big bucks for gun control effort...and a pressing question

Big money rolls into gun control campaign; who is ‘anonymous donor?’

Yesterday’s latest “kickoff” of the Initiative 594 campaign in Seattle reportedly brought in a $1 million pledge from Nick and Leslie Hanauer – prime bank-rollers of the gun control effort so far – along with what the Seattle P-I.com reported was “a six-figure pledge from an anonymous donor,” and that is troubling to gun rights activists.

WIN AN AR500 ELIMINATOR FROM GRIZZLY TARGETS!

Just because one hits their target, doesn't mean they have accomplished the task of eliminating the threat. Eliminator attempts to hone the skills of the shooter with that exact scenario in mind.

High noon kickoff for WA gun control campaign

High noon at the Westin today, another I-594 ‘kickoff’

Today’s noon campaign kickoff for Initiative 594 comes on the heels of yesterday’s Seattle Times report on “skyrocketing” concealed pistol licenses (CPL) in Washington, and ten days after the Isla Vista attack demonstrated that the so-called “universal background check” (UBC) scheme at the core of the well-financed measure does not prevent the kind of crime its backers use as an example for why voters should pass it, gun rights advocates say.
