From the Desk of John Rourke – March 3rd, 2015

I am half-way thru Season 3 of House of Cards on Netflix. Awesome show. If you have not seen the first two seasons I highly recommend them.

Many missed it but later this week United States National Guard troops will arrive in Ukraine to help train troops. I suspect Putin is not thrilled….ya think?

The Kel-Tec PMR is a very unique pistol. Not only is it a rare entity in that it is a reliable semi-automatic .22 Magnum but is it just unbelievably lightweight. Many consider it to be the ultimate “kit” gun.

This is pathetic. The end result of policies that create an entitlement mindset. Liberalism at its best…..

  1. i am not american, but surely if all your senators and congressmen got an email every day, reminding them that the national guard can only be sent out of the country when federalised, which can only happen when war is declared, which is a function of congress not obama; and they should demand the return of everyone from ukraine, and wherever else. email every day. of course since i am not a “constitutional expert”, it is possible that i am wrong

  2. Social services doesn’t arrest anyone. The man was probably a sex offender and that’s how social services became involved. No one is responsible for those 15 kids but the parents. This is unbelievable!

  3. Vito, I believe you are right, but it does not stop our ruler when he has a pen and a phone. MM, why would anyone in what appears to be a low income household have that many kids to start with, trying to catch up to the Octo mom?

  4. Sorry folks. but the ‘POSOTUS’ can deploy the Guard out of the country without the approval of congress. There are a number of situations where this can be done and in this case, all he has to do is ask the Governor ‘to borrow his troops’ for a certain period of time, and considering this is a ‘non-combat’ role (which doesn’t mean they won’t see combat, it just means they’re not being sent to combat), there usually isn’t a problem and rarely is it denied, and with that being said, he can still put the Guardsmen under title 10 orders, which is ‘federalizing’ them. Me thinks it funny how he’ll deploy troops to a border dispute between two foreign countries, but he wont send them to our southern border. I’m telling you… 2016 can’t get here soon enough.
