SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (Feb 15, 2018) – Yesterday, a Utah Senate committee passed a bill would expand raw milk sales in the state. Passage into law would take an important step toward rejecting a federal prohibition scheme in effect. Sen. David Hinkins (R-27) and Rep. Marc Roberts (R-67) introduced Senate Bill 108 (SB108) January 23. The […]
The FBI is at fault on this one. They say this kid had been calling himself “school shooter” for a year. The FBI had been alerted about this kid a year ago, and numerous times since then.
Those in position know, that autistic people can become violent, and they also know that the medication this kid was on, could cause the very behavior that was displayed on Wednesday.
Thing that mainstream media is not talking about also, is that there was more than one shooter. So where is the other one?
Another excuse to take our firearms from us.
The following was emailed to me from USCCA:
“Why Would Anyone Do Something So Terrible?”
BY TIM SCHMIDT – USCCA FOUNDER
It’s happened again. Tragedy. Heartbreak. Once again, precious human lives have been victimized and cut short by evil circumstances beyond their control.
Preliminary reports indicate that former student Nikolas Cruz, 19, opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday, killing 17 people and wounding 14 more.
We don’t (and probably never will) know all the details of what happened inside those walls, but that doesn’t stop us from asking why anyone would do something so terrible.
In fact, in the aftermath of a tragedy such as this, that desire to know why is what sometimes pushes people to thoughtlessly say things that perhaps they wouldn’t normally say.
You see, when we don’t have all the answers, the easiest thing in the world to do is to point fingers:
“This kid obviously had unfettered access to guns and that’s what prompted this whole thing.”
“There is no reason that any person should be able to own a gun like that.”
And perhaps the most common of all:
“We need to just get rid of all guns so this sort of thing can’t happen again.”
But there’s a big problem with those statements: They all shift the blame to something other than the individual responsible for carrying out such atrocities.
People like you and I already know and acknowledge that these tragic events are intentional acts committed by men and women who don’t care at all for precious human life. We hold the perpetrators of these acts accountable, focusing on the things that drove them to such evil instead of the tools they used to carry out their crimes.
Because we have already been enlightened by the truth, I believe that we, responsibly armed Americans, have a duty — especially in the face of events such as these — to respond to inaccurate and cruel statements about guns, concealed carry, the 2nd Amendment or anything else about which we’re knowledgeable and which can direct this important conversation in a truthful way.
We must never allow our emotions to override logic. We must never be cruel. We must respond, as best we can, with the facts.
And we must not — we cannot! — live our lives in fear.
We must transform our fear — our disgust and anger and sadness — into action. Into preparedness.
We must also demand an answer to another really important question:
When will we be allowed to defend our most precious resources?
Students and teachers — in elementary schools all the way up to colleges — have been taught to “lock down.” To hide in closets and behind desks. To wait as seconds turn to minutes (and what must seem like forever) for help to arrive.
Concealed Carry Magazine Executive Editor Kevin Michalowski wrote something about Aaron Feis, the brave football coach at Parkland High School who stepped in front of students when the bullets started flying, that really hit home:
“All he could do was use his body as a shield. Image what he could have done if he was allowed to shoot back at the killer.”
Let’s get rid of gun-free zones. Let’s start arming and training our willing teachers.
It’s time we stopped allowing our legislators to decide how much human lives — especially our children’s — are worth. The answer is simple. They’re worth everything.
Take Care and Stay Safe,

Please sign! No nuclear restart in Japan
The petition can be found here: https://www.change.org/p/kyoto-governor-keiji-yamada-protect-kyoto-stop-the-dangerous-ohi-plant-prevent-another-nuclear-disaster-in-japan?recruiter=809064883&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=share_email_responsive
Green Action Japan has started a petition to stop the planned restart of the Ohi nuclear power plant. The Ohi plant — in Fukui Prefecture which has the highest concentration of nuclear power plants in the world — is just 37 miles from the historic city of Kyoto (pictured). As the petition states: “The Japanese national government wants everything ‘back to normal’ by the 2020 Olympics: Fukushima accident evacuees back to the Fukushima region, nuclear power plants restarted – everything back to pre-Fukushima days.” The reality is very different, with the destroyed Fukushima nuclear site still leaking deadly radioactivity and a country riddled with earthquake faults and volcanoes but a government eager to restart its nuclear reactors. The Governor and Mayor of Kyoto have petitioned the national government for the right to say yes/no to restart, to have control over Kyoto’s fate. Their plea has been answered with silence. Please help Koyoto, Japan and the world, by signing the Green Action petition today. No nuclear restarts! Please sign here. And watch a video about Ohi.
With CNN being one of the major fake news Soros run news outlets, who knows what is real, and what isn’t anymore. When you get news agencies that lie on a constant, who really believes anything they say anymore?
Here it is:
Top official reveals UFOs exist, and they’re “often being reported” over nuclear power plants… “We’d never seen anything like it” — Military: “Ominous correlation” between sightings and atomic sites — TV: “Mystery intruders over nuke facilities” (VIDEOS)
Published: December 20th, 2017 at 7:18 am ET
CNN, Dec 18, 2017 (emphasis added): A former Pentagon official who led a recently revealed government program to research potential UFOs said Monday evening that he believes there is evidence of alien life reaching Earth. “My personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone,” Luis Elizondo said… “We found a lot,” Elizondo said. The former Pentagon official said they… were “seemingly defying the laws of aerodynamics… maneuvering in ways that include extreme maneuverability beyond, I would submit, the healthy G-forces of a human or anything biological”…
New York Times, Dec 16, 2017: By 2009, [Sen. Harry] Reid decided that the program had made such extraordinary discoveries that he argued for heightened security… A 2009 Pentagon briefing summary of the program prepared by its director at the time asserted that “what was considered science fiction is now science fact,” and that the United States was incapable of defending itself against some of the technologies discovered…
The Independent, Dec 19, 2017: US government recovered materials from unidentified flying object it ‘does not recognise’ … Materials, which are alleged to have “amazing properties”, are being stored in modified buildings in Las Vegas, the New York Times reports… “They have some material from these objects that is being studied, so that scientists can try to figure out what accounts for their amazing properties,” Ralf Blumenthal, one of the authors of the New York Times report, told MSNBC. Mr Blumenthal said the DoD “do not know” what the materials are made of. “It’s some sort of compound they do not recognise,” he added…
Politico, Dec 16, 2017: The sightings, [Luis Elizondo (official in charge of the Pentagon’s program)] told POLITICO, were often reported in the vicinity of nuclear facilities, either ships at sea or power plants. “We had never seen anything like it.”.
KLAS, Jul 7, 2016: A group of more than 150 military veterans, missile officers, and security personnel, including many who worked at the Nevada Test Site, say they’ve seen mystery intruders over nuclear facilities… The I-Team’s own Freedom of Information Act request filed in 1992 produced a thick stack of documents from the Department of Energy, indicating UFO incidents over every major atomic weapons facility…
Documentary – UFOs and Nukes (IMDb), 2016: (at 3:30 in) Declassified US government documents reveal that as early as December 1948 incursions by mysterious aerial objects later referred to as UFOs began to occur at American nuclear laboratories… (at 13:00 in) According to military intelligence officers, a worrisome pattern had begun to emerge. On July 1, 1952, Look Magazine featured an article “Hunt for the flying saucer” about the air force’s new UFO investigations group Project Blue Book and noted that its director first lieutenant Edward Ruppelt had plotted 63 unexplained sightings on a map of the United States. At that point it was discovered that a quote “ominous correlation” existed between some of the sightings and the location of various atomic weapons installations.
Look Magazine, Jul 1, 1952: Ruppelt keeps 63 sightings on the top of his file… These sightings were pinpointed on a map. Soon afterwards, it was seen by a Pentagon representative who noted that a number of concentrations duplicated exactly the area of atomic energy installations. The Pentagon man excitedly reported back to his headquarters. A conference was called immediately in Washington.

Monkeys Trying to Have Sex With Deer Is a Thing Now, Says Study
Yep, it happened again.
18 DEC 2017
At the start of this year, the world was left baffled when evidence emerged of a male snow monkey unsuccessfully getting it on with a female Sika deer on Japan’s Yakushima Island.
Now another research team has recorded female monkeys humping male deer, and these romps happened in an entirely different group of animals, in another part of the country.
Snow monkeys, or Japanese macaques, are known to cohabit with Sika deer, as the latter are attracted by food scraps discarded by the monkeys on the forest floor.
Researchers have seen monkeys grooming the deer and even riding them, but this sexual stuff is something new.
The single male macaque caught in the act on Yakushima was thought to be a low-status male who couldn’t get a female mate and thus reduced his sexual frustration by taking it out on the deer – who seemed unphased by the affair.
But it’s hard to judge what might be going on between the species with just one example, so primatologists from the University of Lethbridge in Canada decided to gather more data from the groups they were observing in Minoo, central Japan.
Scientists already know that adolescent female macaques have similar urges – they routinely interact with male and female monkeys in a sexy way, soliciting them for sex and even mounting them.
Having seen adolescent monkey girls mounting male deer in the vicinity, the team decided to compare these two behaviours to see whether the interactions really were meant to be sexual.
“This is the first quantitative study of heterospecific sexual behaviour between a non-human primate and a non-primate species,” the team writes in the study.
After counting a total of 67 mounts between two female monkeys and 258 female-monkey-on-deer mounts, the researchers identified 25 “successful” interactions, defined by three or more mounts within a 10 minute period.
Twelve of these happened between monkeys, and the other thirteen were monkey-deer liaisons. The romps would take anywhere between just a few minutes to as long as two hours.
Mostly, the deer didn’t seem to care at all – they nonchalantly stood still and even kept eating, and only a few reared up to dislodge the horny monkeys from their backs.
In a video featuring sample interactions recorded during the study, the whole thing looks fairly innocent, as the monkeys grind away atop bored-looking deer (although the biting and occasional antler-pulling is a bit more disconcerting).
After analysing the behaviours, the team concluded there was no significant difference between monkey-monkey or monkey-deer interactions – so what we’re seeing is indeed macaques having sexy time with deer.
But why are they doing this? The short answer is, we still don’t really know.
The team hypothesises there could be several reasons for these unproductive affairs – adolescent females could be practising their sex moves before engaging in the real deal, or perhaps relieving sexual tension since they couldn’t get a mate of their own species.
It all could be down to surging adolescent hormones, as female monkeys get a taste for what genital stimulation feels like, and decide to partake in it with non-threatening deer, as opposed to potentially aggressive adult male monkeys.
The researchers note they may have seen a larger number of interspecies action because of their observation area – a place in the national park where staff provide food twice a day to prevent monkeys from roaming too far out into the nearby city.
But apart from the possibly increased frequency, the researchers don’t think the sexual interactions had anything to do with human influence on the environment, as the two species hang around each other in many parts of the country.
“Future observations at this site will indicate whether this group-specific sexual oddity was a short-lived fad or the beginning of a culturally maintained phenomenon,” the team writes in the study.
The research was published in Archives of Sexual Behavior.
I don’t know how many of you have dogs, or what treats you give them, if you have them. Our animals are very large, so of course, I like to get them treats that are large. Bully sticks, to get large ones, are kind of expensive. They are supposed to last a really long time, but 225 pounds can do away with one in no time.
A couple of years ago, we went, around this time of year, down to the local pet supply store. They had a two pack of these things redbarn twisters or some such name. They are like 20-22″ long. Perfect. Special Sale Price $8.99. Cool, I could afford that.
Later, when I went to track some down to order, they are like between $9-$13 each. And I have to have 2 of everything, and they last no time.
Anyway, recently I had ordered a bunch when I found them on special. There was a little issue with a couple of them. Not a real big issue, but something that I wanted the company to be aware of, so that they could keep an eye out on it.
The lady that assisted me, Sue Jonsson, after reading my email, was totally wonderful! She sent me out another bunch, in fact a few more than I had ordered for that particular order. It was like early Christmas for my dogs, they were ecstatic! I gave each of them a whole one. Yes, I am so chintzy that I cut them in half so that I can actually afford to give them both a treat.
Not too many companies out there that do that sort of thing anymore. It has been a long time since I have seen a company that cares as much as RedBarn.
