The “10 Deadly Errors” hung in my locker every day of my career. I originally obtained them from the book, Officer Down, Code Three, by Los Angeles Homicide Detective Pierce Brooks. After attending “too many” police funerals, Brooks compiled a list of errors that were being repeatedly committed in officer-down cases. Here is my take on …

While in grade school I suffered two concussions in the same calendar year. Both were head strikes I sustained on the school playground and both times I wound up in the hospital. I overheard a doctor tell my parents that one more concussion could kill me. This as a child, scared the hell out of me. …

What if Barack Obama could create 5,000,000 new anti-gun voters … in a tyrannical act of unconstitutional usurpation … all by the stroke of his pen? And what if Obama justified his tyranny by acknowledging, effectively, that he controlled the police and that there was nothing anyone could do about it? Would that alarm you? …

Did you miss Tinseltown’s latest political correctness powwow? Preening celebrities showed their solidarity with Ferguson, Mo., at the MTV Video Music Awards show this week. Rapper Common led the convocation, preachifying about the positive impact of hip-hop music on society as a “powerful instrument of social change” and “truth.” Cameras showed drug-addled gangsta rapper Snoop …

For the past forty-plus years, America has slowly and steadily declined as a nation and a world power, thanks to the rise and growth of the naïve progressive ideology that promotes the hobbling of American power projection. As a subset of this ideology, American influence has been hijacked. In its place are social justice programs …

Oh, for the love of God, now I’ve heard it all. Whatever they may disagree about, Western leaders are in complete agreement about one thing: the new self-styled caliphate, the Islamic State, has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam. It’s a comforting, reassuring vision for Western non-Muslims facing a massive influx of Muslim immigrants and …

In March 2008 I chatted with a silver-haired law school professor under the marble pillars of the U.S. Supreme Court building. He was very excited. The court was to about hear Heller v. D.C. The case would decide whether the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects an individual right to own and carry guns. …

As the story of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown begins to look less clear-cut than we were led to believe by Brown’s friend, Dorian Johnson, the “voices of oppression” on MSNBC now say the real issue is that there aren’t enough blacks on the Ferguson police force. As Brown may …

According to Bureau of Justice Statistics data from 2008, there roughly 765,000 sworn officers in the United States — and an absurdly small number ever fire their weapons outside of training. Due to the success of American policing, our citizenry is able to remain blissfully unaware of the terrible dynamics of encountering an attack or …

STUPID! The most descriptive word I could come up with to describe our president’s actions regarding just about everything, but in particular his foreign affairs policy (or lack thereof), and especially his continued willingness to release classified information in order to deflect public and press criticism and/or gain political points. On Wednesday, senior White House officials released …

Socialist dictators have learned from one another over time and developed a blueprint for closing down an open society. The 10 essential steps the state must implement to take total control are: 1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy. 2. Create secret prisons where torture takes place. 3. Develop a thug caste or paramilitary …

In response to recent articles in mainstream military journals discussing the use of the U.S. Army to quell insurrections on American soil, I offer an alternate vision of the future. Instead of a small town in the South as the flash point, picture instead a score of U.S. cities in the thrall of riots greater …

Hey, Sharpton and Jackson, why aren’t you moaning and wailing over the unjust murder of this young man at the hands of a cop? I know there’s a reason, I can tell by the picture. I just can’t quite put my finger on it. By Cassandra Rules, The Free Thought Project Dillon Taylor, 20 years …

Well, it’s Trayvon Martin all over again where the media is concerned. If you recall, these are the two photos that the media kept parading around during the Trayvon/Zimmerman debacle: The mainstream media and millions on the social media outlets tried their hardest to portray him (Trayvon) as an innocent child who was victimized by a …

  Grab a beer and some tissue, you are going to laugh your butt off. This is rich! The Als, Gore and Jazeera, are locked in a legal battle to see who can out-cheat the other. Have you ever seen a western movie where the perennial snake oil salesman comes rolling into town to hoodwink, I …
