“The world is changed,” she says (and behind, just audible, the same voice echoing in the original Sindarin Elvish, “I amar prestar aen.”) “I feel it in the water.” (“Han mathon ne nen.”) “I feel it in the earth.” (“Han mathon ne chae.”) “I smell it in the air.” (“A han noston ned gwilith.”) “Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. . . .”

Nevada voters — along with Nevada gun owners who can still register to vote by Oct. 8 if they’d like to preserve what’s left of their gun rights (and who knows, maybe even vote against Hillary Clinton’s “Australian Plan” to confiscate and destroy all the semi-automatic firearms in the country) — may not have noticed, but the Silver State is the latest target of gun-grabbing New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg and his gang of elitist hoplophobes (most of whom can afford and indeed are used to having armed personal bodyguards) who want to gradually eliminate the remaining rights of us “deplorables” to buy and sell firearms, by making the process increasingly expensive, cumbersome, and likely to get you sent to jail — one state at a time.

By now anyone who cares to do any reading on the topic knows Christopher Stevens was serving more as an Obama-authorized illegal arms dealer than a regular “ambassador” to Libya when our consulate in Bengazi was attacked on Sept. 11, 2012, resulting in Stevens and three other Americans being massacred because Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed — or refused, or was unable — to give the go-ahead for a rescue mission.

The Right to Bare Arms (Knees Too!)

burkini 1

Much ado about burkini bans in recent days. On one hand, that sounds a bit silly — women and men should be able to wear what they want, and be comfortable — on the other hand, there are good reasons to oppose burkinis on western beaches and at public pools.
