Another day, another Republican unable to function unhampered by the web of Lilliputian Democrats.
Incoming House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer said Friday that Democrats next week will not seat a North Carolina Republican amid allegations of election fraud in the state’s 9th Congressional District.
“Given the now well-documented election fraud that took place in NC-09, Democrats would object to any attempt by [Mark] Harris to be seated on January 3,” Hoyer said in a statement. “In this instance, the integrity of our democratic process outweighs concerns about the seat being vacant at the start of the new Congress.”
The statement came after North Carolina dissolved its elections board Friday without certifying the Nov. 6 results, leaving the fate of the seat in doubt days ahead of the start of the new Congress.
So a cautionary tale for women. Do not move to some Northeast liberal crazy gun control
state. You may regret the decision.
Who would want to leave North Carolina for New Yawk City anyway?
The Blaze directs attention to a story from Bearing Arms.
New York’s Sullivan Act is one law that desperately needs to land in front of the Supreme Court just so it can dismantle the system, one that favors political connections over any other factor when it comes to individuals’ Second Amendment rights. It’s a system that would keep Tonya Wooten disarmed, beaten, and possibly killed so they can pretend they’re keeping people safe.
Excellent interview with Clint Romesha if for no other reason than Mr. Romesha is allowed to
present his own story in his own words without interruption! Salute’ to Black Rifle Coffee

From the Amazon.com description:
The only comprehensive, firsthand account of the fourteen-hour firefight at the Battle of Keating by Medal of Honor recipient Clinton Romesha, for readers of Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden and Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell.
“‘It doesn’t get better.’ To us, that phrase nailed one of the essential truths, maybe even the essential truth, about being stuck at an outpost whose strategic and tactical vulnerabilities were so glaringly obvious to every soldier who had ever set foot in that place that the name itself—Keating—had become a kind of backhanded joke.”
In 2009, Clinton Romesha of Red Platoon and the rest of the Black Knight Troop were preparing to shut down Command Outpost (COP) Keating, the most remote and inaccessible in a string of bases built by the US military in Nuristan and Kunar in the hope of preventing Taliban insurgents from moving freely back and forth between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Three years after its construction, the army was finally ready to concede what the men on the ground had known immediately: it was simply too isolated and too dangerous to defend.
On October 3, 2009, after years of constant smaller attacks, the Taliban finally decided to throw everything they had at Keating. The ensuing fourteen-hour battle—and eventual victory—cost eight men their lives.
Red Platoon is the riveting firsthand account of the Battle of Keating, told by Romesha, who spearheaded both the defense of the outpost and the counterattack that drove the Taliban back beyond the wire and received the Medal of Honor for his actions.
“A vitally important story that needs to be understood by the public, and I cannot imagine an account that does it better justice that Romesha’s.”—Sebastian Junger, journalist and author of The Perfect Storm
“Red Platoon is sure to become a classic of the genre.”—Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and In the Kingdom of Ice

Great opening swing! Way to go Tred!
Let me give you some facts that should scare the hell out of you.
There is no scientific evidence whatsoever that the condition of this area is under any threat whatsoever from commercial and sports fishing. In fact this area has been fished for over 50 years. The area, as most of the Continental Shelf between Maine and Florida, is rich in red crab, squid, swordfish, yellowfin tuna, bigeye tuna, albacore, and lobster. The radical left environmentalists such as The Nature Conservancy, The Sierra Club, Oceana, and The Pew Charitable Trusts claims that the Aquatic National Park is extremely sensitive to any disturbance by man. By the way, these conservancy groups also say this is true of the entire Continental Shelf from Maine to Florida. Accusations of hurting whales, porpoises, birds, and other marine life all the way down to 3,000 feet and beyond is not true.
