International Whaling Commission meeting 2016 – what to expect.

All rights reserved. Credit: Paul Hilton Sperm Whales in Sri Lanka Image caption: Sperm Whales in Sri Lanka Delegations from global governments, and representatives from NGOs are currently on their way to Slovenia for the biennial meeting of the International Whaling Commission meeting – so here’s a quick synopsis of what to expect from the meeting: Whaling: this year’s IWC meeting is likely to be a polarised debate, with ‘pro-whaling’ governments keen to undermine the ban on commercial whaling in any way possible, and ‘pro-whales’ governments keen to defend it. It’s two years since the UN’s International Court of Justice ruled against the …

10 big reasons a new runway at Heathrow is bad for the UK

All rights reserved. Credit: Climate Camp 1. A new runway will fuel climate changeThis month the world ratified the most ambitious climate agreement ever. The Paris agreement couldn’t come soon enough- 2016 was the hottest year on record and the Arctic sea ice reached the second lowest minimum ever.Heathrow would fuel more climate change, creating over 50% more flights at what is already Europe’s largest airport. Scientists have warned that this will drastically undermine the UK’s ability to meet emission targets agreed upon in the Paris Agreement.The threat of these emissions can’t be put off?—?a study out this week said that…

Seeking likeminded friends

I am trying to establish contact with any likeminded people, couples or groups in a 500km radius who have either established themselves and are looking for others to network with. Or simply looking to get off grid and join or start a tribe in europe. I am able and willing to accommodate and support some of those who wish to start and take action perhaps starting on a trial basis where one could stay for 1-3 months before making the decision to stay. Currently have a small farmhouse with a few buildings (some working and some ruin) have own water well, currently…

November 3, 2016 (Ulson Gunnar – NEO) – Despite the United States being engaged in what it calls “reconstruction” in Afghanistan, quarterly reports on their progress doing so reveals expanding violence and deepening poverty.Washington Times in an article titled, “Afghanistan failures rising, progress eroding 15 years after U.S. intervention,” reports that:Opium production is up 43 percent in Afghanistan, the economy is struggling and the government has lost ground to insurgents over the last year, according to an inspector general’s report released Sunday that shows ongoing failures overshadowing the few signs of hope.Indeed, every quarter, the “Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction,” or SIGAR…

What’s the Best Slide Serration Technique?

I was asked recently, “Why don’t you like forward cocking serrations?” Part of it is that I’m a curmudgeon, a crusty old relic of bygone days. I learned on pistols that didn’t have them, I got along fine without them, and I didn’t need them. There’s also the fact that the sharper ones act like a cheese grater in holsters. The general question of how to use cocking serrations safely and properly is a more interesting one. Let’s discuss their strengths and weaknesses when racking a slide. We’ll start with the normal grooves, those on the back of the …

Top 20 Politicians for Gun Owners 2016

It’s no secret to anyone who is paying attention that gun rights are in the crosshairs of the political debate. We no longer live in a time where gun control advocates hide their views behind “gun safety” doubletalk, at this point, the lines have become pretty clear. This year saw a Democratic Presidential Primary where the candidates sought to one-up each other on their support for stricter gun control laws and California just passed some of the most anti-gun legislation in our nation’s history. The President’s latest executive order relating to ITAR permits will likely put hundreds of small time gunsmiths, already a dying breed, out of business permanently…

Whoa.  Relevant to my interests: $200 and they come in Olive Drab (pictured) and black.  Holy I’m liking the olive ones, and the price is right. For whatever reason, it seems a lot of you guys aren’t into clothing as much I am.  I’ll keep posting stuff like this though, because it interests me and I hope at least you can appreciate the military cultural appropriation that went into the design of the shoes and of the tote bag shown in the video.

A Special Kind Of Tactical Firearms Training On Its Way To The USA

A Dogbertian Persuasion Technique

Most of us who are patriotic, and who have thought this election through, are very much in favor of Trump, of course. The America-haters and the anti-White crowd are of course for Hillary, for the same reasons we’re against her. That leaves some good people who aren’t that politically aware, and who get their opinions more or less from the Big Media outlets, all of which are Hillary sycophants. Some of those are undecided, and some are for Hillary. How do we persuade such people to support and vote for Trump, at this late date, when we encounter them?As much as we might like to, yelling at them won’t help, nor will a know-it-all attitude that it’s all too easy …

If Donald Trump Wins, He Will Be 70 Years, 7 Months And 7 Days Old On His First Full Day In Office

A couple of weeks ago, it looked like Hillary Clinton was all set to cruise to victory, but now the FBI has delivered an election miracle in the nick of time.  A few of my readers had criticized me for suggesting that Trump might lose, but I don’t know who is going to win the election, and so all I had to go on was the cold, hard numbers.  And a couple of weeks ago the cold, hard numbers were telling me that Hillary Clinton was going to win.  Of course it is entirely possible that the national polls might have been seriously wrong, but even the state polls in the most important battleground states consistently had bad news for Trump.  So …
