After the accidental burning last year of Qurans by U.S. troops in Afghanistan sparked deadly rioting, an Air National Guard chaplain from Springfield stepped in and potentially saved countless American lives.
For his effort, Lt. Col. Jon Trainer received the prestigious Bronze Star — a medal given for heroic or meritorious achievement in connection with operations against an armed enemy.
And he did it with a PowerPoint presentation
The blue, red and white Distinguished Warfare Medal will be given to servicemembers that demonstrate “extraordinary achievement” related to a military operation after 9/11. But unlike every other combat award, it does not require the recipient to risk her or her life…
An official speaking on condition of anonymity prior to the announcement from the Pentagon has indicated that the award will be higher ranking than a Bronze Star, but lower than the Silver Star — the nation’s third-highest award, the Army Times reports.
KABUL, AFGHANISTAN – With tensions in the Middle East rising over Iran’s nuclear program and the Syrian civil war, the United States and NATO began their largest annual joint-exercise this week, Operation Enduring Freedom. …
“In an uncertain world, we believe that Enduring Freedom shows that the NATO alliance is still a relevant force,” said International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) spokesman Colonel Nick Page.
United States Marines are being told to preserve ammunition and gasoline as a deal softening the impact of automatic spending cuts continues to elude leaders in Washington.
Marine Corps Commandant James Amos urged personnel in a video posted online Friday to “save every round, every gallon of gas,” and to “take every single aspect or opportunity in training to get the most bang for the buck,” a reminder of the cuts’ immediate effect on the U.S. military.
He’s like Mark Russell, but funny, and for the Second Amendment.

I’d guess some of those are the stupid “idiot boyfriend films unknowing girlfriend” type cruel and tragic shenanigans, but it still does illustrate a point. Shotguns are rough to shoot compared to ARs, especially for people who are smaller and unfamiliar with them. No one who is handed an AR has any problems with them, even if unfamiliar and using a terrible stance. They’re especially easy to use compared to shotguns, which with defensive loads are often rather punishing to shoot.
The girl at the end of the video is using a weak stance that’s just as bad as any of the shotgun girls, but has no problems firing the AR, she isn’t knocked on her butt, and she turns to the camera not with an “ow!” or “oh crap!”, but a “hey, this is fun!” look.

I knew about this incident:
But didn’t realize that Jeremy Clarkson (of Top Gear fame) had also punched snotty liar anti-2A Brit poof Piers Morgan in the face. Thank you, Jeremy Clarkson.
Update: Jeremy Clarkson told the story here… I think he may only be apologetic about it in this video as part of a characteristic British politeness.
Makes you want to watch some Top Gear…
No, the other guys aren’t that short… Clarkson is 6’5″. Makes the idea of a punch to Piers Morgan’s smug face that much more satisfying.

From Dana Loesch at Redstate:
Chicago’s Chief of Police, who previously blamed ”government-sponsored racism” and Sarah Palin for Chicago’s gun violence, declared that the law-ful exercise of the Second Amendment was a threat to public safety. From the Illinois State Rifle Association:
Chicago’s embattled police superintendent dug himself deeper into a pit of controversy today by claiming that lawful firearm owners are agents of political corruption. Appearing on a Chicago Sunday morning talk show, superintendent Garry McCarthy expressed his conviction that firearm owners who lobby their elected representatives or who donate money to political campaigns are engaged in corruption that endangers public safety. McCarthy went on to express his belief that judges and legislators should rely on public opinion polls when interpreting our Constitution.
After totally dismissing the citizen’s right to redress grievances, McCarthy trained his constitutional wisdom on the 2nd Amendment. Despite recent court decisions to the contrary, McCarthy opined that the 2ndAmendment limits citizens to owning smooth-bore muskets. McCarthy went on to say that he believes that the 2nd Amendment supports mandatory liability insurance for firearm owners and the mandatory application of GPS tracking devices to civilian owned firearms.
The head of the Chicagograd Regional Police Battalion, Comrade Chief Garry McCarthy, has declared that the Bill of Rights of the US Constitution only applied to the 18th century, and that all matters of civil rights hinge on workers’ and peasants’ need for safety guaranteed by State security apparatuses. Therefore, all attempts to use the US Constitution to oppose security operations by State Law Enforcement organs are a danger to the public and will be suppressed.
Comrade McCarthy, known for his heroic service which has led to Chicagograd having the reputation as one of the safest cities in the USSA, is an expert in constitutional interpretation. In recent remarks on a local broadcast from the American Media Collective, the Chief explained that the Constitution was only intended to cover the current issues of 18th century America, making is a reactionary and decadent document.
In our Progressive era, where all citizens are equal and endowed by their membership in the Proletariat with the unalienable rights to complete protection and the provision of all their needs by the State, the Constitution now represents a threat to public safety when it is evoked as limiting the proper mandatory services of the State for the protection and care of the Masses.
Down with bourgeois ‘rights’! Up with the Right to Security Through Universal Disarmament!
Clearly the People’s Revolutionary City Directorate Commisar Rahm Emanuel has chosen well in his police chief, who clearly understands that the bourgeois notion of individual self defense is not only obsolete, but counterrevolutionary and dangerous. These kinds of reminders are good to have, in case the mothers of future generations of the glorious proletariat forget that their wombs are the property of the state and thus of all of their fellow workers. The Chicagograd Regional Police Battalion commander’s ideas ensure that no mother of future workers will be able to resist the glorious will of the most powerful of the proletariat laborers when they wish to provide her with a future worker for the state, and that any resistance she has to such an action would be counterrevolutionary and dangerous.
The People’s Democratic Democrat Representative Joe Salazar of the mountainous region of the USSA known as the Free People’s Democratic Republic of Colorado has also made such a statement – he notes that some mothers of future workers may experience some reluctance to bear the state another glorious laborer, but that they will be given whistles and call boxes so that they may summon a party member to award them with the Medal Of Motherhood upon conception of their surprise laborer.
Glorious Motherhood! Down with the War on Women! Women’s rights means the power for women to bear strong workers for the state, and the strongest of workers are the ones who can catch and battle the strongest of women to a defeat in unarmed combat, mirroring the revolutionary workers’ struggle against reactionary capitalists.
Joe Bob Briggs came up with a solution back in 1990:
If you’re not a fan of bad drive-in movies, skip ahead to 1:35 and he covers it, meandering to the point.
Noteworthy that legal immigrants who take the naturalization oath have zero patience with illegal aliens. They don’t put up with that crap, they don’t put up with people who don’t love the country they’re moving to – because legal immigrants want to be Americans.
HotAir has a piece today on how support for maniac cop/cop-killer & murderer Chris Dorner has gone mainstream. But the highlight is Katie Pavlich going after some leftist crapweasel who supports Dorner. A quick cut to those highlights:
In a totally unrelated coincidence that has absolutely nothing at all to do with why I posted this and had no impact whatsoever on why I would make a decision to post this, it’s Valentine’s Day.
So Happy Valentine’s Day.
