Gun-Grabbers Seek To Use Dead Soldiers to Back Their Agenda
By Harold Hutchison

In the wake of the tragic mass shooting at Fort Hood that left four dead, including the shooter, gun-grabbers are already seeking to push new gun-control measures, using the incident to revive an agenda that stalled at the federal level last year.

According to media reports, anti-Second Amendment politicians like Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) are trying to revive last year’s push for so-called “universal background checks.” The legislation failed in 2013 after failing to overcome a filibuster.

Under Attack: Religious Freedom of Christians in the US Military

In the video below, members of our Armed Forces speak out about the culture of fear and intimidation in the US military that is forcing Christian soldiers to hide their faith.

The attacks on Christianity in the military have caused the Bible to be banned from military hospitals, chaplains to be deemed non-essential, prayer to be banned from military funerals and soldiers to be dismissed for voicing their Christian beliefs about homosexual marriage.

FARNAM ON FORT HOOD

Of yesterday's shooting victims, all were military, and none were armed and able to defend themselves, nor each other, from a gun-wielding, murdering lunatic who apparently didn't get the memo about the Base being a "Gun-Free Zone!"

As soon as the suspect was confronted by military police, he committed suicide, typical MO for active murderers.

Joint Strike Fighter Delayed from July 2015 to 2016
By Harold Hutchison

The F-35 Lightning II has suffered what some are characterizing as a “major delay” – and that delay will adversely affect the ability of the United States to fight wars. The delay is yet another for the plane, which was expected to take on a greater role after the halt of F-22 production at 187 airframes.

WEAKNESS REVEALED, OR SOMETHING ELSE?

By Adm. James A. Lyons, USN (Ret.)

Not many Americans are aware or understand the Obama Doctrine, but it is in full play in the current Ukraine crisis. President Obama’s inept handling of this flash point is not due to his inexperience or incompetence. Quite to the contrary – what we are witnessing is the execution of a planned agenda reflecting his 2008 campaign rhetoric about his promise to fundamentally change America. His doctrine is based on the false premise that dominant U.S. military and economic power throughout the world has been the problem.
