Due to a recently issued patent I now am the sole inventor on three different patents. For various personal reasons I am not very public about the details of two of them. However, the first one, 4,412,299, does not share those concerns.
The title is Phase Jitter Detector. This was an invention to help meet speech immunity requirements for a Touch-Tone receiver. What is “speech immunity?” It turns out that because the old analog phone lines used the same channel for voice and signaling (the Touch-Tone digits) background speech, music, and other sounds would sometimes simulate a Touch-Tone digit with sufficient accuracy to insert a false digit into your dialed number. This false digit would result in a wrong number.
The problem increased in severity as the dynamic range of the receiver increased. With some reasonable precautions the problem was kept under control with normal subscriber to central office communications. But in the late 1970s and 1980s companies were creating things which they wanted to be able to remotely control. Examples from that time are answering ma...

The Cowboy State Daily reports that the Wyoming Game and Fish Department is reacting to federal agencies interpreting that federal statute (2022 Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA)) as banning federal funds going to teaching hunter/firearm safety and archery. Wyoming G&F is providing funds to schools in the State to pay for instructors and materials to do just that: teach school students hunter (and therefore, at least some gun) safety and how to hunt using a bow and arrows (safely, of course). That foolish law prohibits federal education funds from helping provide any person with a dangerous weapon or to provide “training in the use of a dangerous weapon,” ...

We also need to FOIA or subpoena any and all documents related to the writing and passage of these laws. If there is intent to deprive people of their rights, file a 1983 claim.

18 USC 242 is one of the laws I reference when I talk about “Enjoy your trial.” I first became aware of 18 USC 241 and 242 in 2003. Off and on I would bring it up, but few people said much about it.
In 2019, at my private urging, Brian K. came up with the #EnjoyYourTrial idea to promote those two laws. I have been using that for over four and a half years now with no apparent traction. I do not recall any public mention of 18 USC 241 or 242 in conjunction with violation of the specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms… until the last 10 days:
People are beginning to notice that Amazon's getting more frustrating to use.
"Lately, though, shopping on Amazon has become an exercise in frustration. My purple-wig search started with sponsored listings from unfamiliar brands with just a small disclosure noting that they’re advertisements. The organic results eventually do show up, offering hairpieces from brands with names such as DAOTS, MorvallyDirect, and eNilecor. Scroll only a little deeper into the sea of indigo fibers, and the sponsored items resume.
What happened to Amazon? The company no longer excels at the thing it’s supposed to be best at: shopping. Its unparalleled convenience and cost helped turn it into an e-commerce juggernaut, one that now faces an antitrust lawsuit from the Federal Trade Commission over alleged anticompetitive practices. Now around every corner lies a brand you’ve never heard of, selling a product you’re not sure about. Good deals on name brands are harder to come by. Amazon’s dominance has also transformed it into a different kind of company. Along the way, t...

On the morning of September 12, 2023, a bird hunter was after upland game in a shelter belt in North Central Montana, about 15 miles south of Choteau. Suddenly, a large grizzly bear burst out of the brush and weeds, charging directly at the hunter full tilt.
Bird hunters tend to be on full alert when expecting to jump shoot birds out of cover. Your senses and reflexes are on a razors edge. You have an appendage (finger or thumb) on the safety. You are keyed to any movement or noise as a possible predictor of a bird rocketing out. The shotgun has a round chambered and ready to go. You expect to acquire the target, mount the gun and make last near instantaneous corrections befo...
Investigators said patrol officers were in the area of Central and Southern avenues and heard gunshots. They spotted a driver speeding off. They tried to pull over the driver, but he kept going. Eventually, he stopped near Second Avenue and Broadway Road. The driver, identified as 23-year-old Omar Rivas, ran from the car but was detained. Officers found 19-year-old Mia Padilla and an unidentified man shot inside the car. Both were taken to the hospital, where Padilla died. The man is expected to survive.
(COLORADO SPRINGS) — The Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) is investigating an early-morning shooting on the northeast side of the city in which one person was found dead.

“How do you conceal your gun in tight clothing?” “What do you use while working out or jogging?” “What’s the best holster for XYZ?” These are questions I get all the time as a female firearms instructor. My answer is usually, “It depends.” And then I give some examples of what works for me and my body type, shape, clothing, etc., with the caveat that it really might not work for you. For the past 10 years that I’ve been concealed carrying, I have been on the search for the perfect belly carry holster, and while that product is still elusive, I think I’ve found a product that is pretty darn close for me.
I finally got far enough ahead of the expert declaration storm to put the rotating rings on the 8" f/7 reflector.

Today, much of society seems to worship the military: “thank you for your service” and so much more is common, perhaps more than ever before, even in major wars. But at the same time, the way the military personnel are being treated is disgusting – especially on the part of government entities. We are reminded of Matthew 15:8: This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
Now, we here at TPOL in no way support worshipping the military. We point out the hypocrisy of those who do – one of many, of course.
Fox News recently reported on a GAO report about living conditions on military installations, making 31 recommendations that DoD is expected to have to implement after inspecting 12 different (unnamed) bases and posts.

This week on “Light Over Heat,” I talk about the TWO books I am writing on American gun culture, tentatively titled: GUN CURIOUS and GUN CULTURE 2.0.
In particular, I talk about what distinguishes them in terms of the substance and audience.

A surprise development has come to light in the Gun Free School Zone Case involving Gabriel Metcalf in Billings, Montana. As Gabriel was processing to be released from jail on his personal recognizance under the Federal charges, he was informed he could not leave. His attorney Russell Hart, is reported as saying no, we have an order from the judge for him to be released. Hart was then told the charges are not federal on this warrant; they are local charges.
The warrant had not been served, but the jail would not release Gabriel because of the existence of the warrant. No one could say exactly what the warrant alleged, because no one in the jail system or Gabriel or his Federal defender had seen the warrant as of early Thursday evening.

According to Public Information Officer Courtney O'Keefe, the incident started as a road rage confrontation between a 23-year-old man and a woman in separate cars. They were driving eastbound on 84th Street NE. At one point, the man got out of his car to confront the woman.
During the confrontation, the female driver informed the male driver someone was attempting to steal his car while he left it unattended.
When the man went back to the car, there was a physical altercation between the male driver and the 41-year-old man. The 23-year-old male driver then shot and killed the man attempting to steal his car, according to police.

James is at TriggrCon 2023 speaking with the guys at Genesis about their 8.6mm PDW, which is ultimately both competition with the Q Boombox, but also a complimentary platform that will make 8.6mm more attractive for potential buyers as more manufacturers start supporting this revolutionary new caliber.

While Judge Benitez’s ruling and reasoning were welcomed, it’s frustrating to many on the pro-gun side of the argument that judges continue to link the need for standard capacity magazines solely to domestic crimes. They should also be referring to citizens’ defense against government tyranny should the need ever arise as a justification for such magazines, as well as the possible need by citizens to protect the nation from foreign invasion sometime in the future.

Judge Overturns California’s 10-Round Magazine Limit—Again
Agreed. That Overton Window needs to be moved.
I'm sitting here looking for an adjustment tool to spin the screw on a Holosun 507k (which is a great CCW optic, don't get me wrong), and it's making me pine for the raw utility of the entire range of Trijicon MRDS sights... the RMR, SRO, RCR, and even the RMRcc ...which have elevation and windage screws designed so you can use the cartridge rim of a 9mm or 5.56 round to turn them in a pinch.
Not me but on loaves of bread.

Egypt purchased tooling for the Swedish AG-42 Ljungman in 1952, and adapted it to their 8mm Mauser caliber as the Hakim rifle. Later, they scaled the rifle down to 7.62x39mm as the Rasheed, and manufactured about 7,300 of them between 1966 and 1968. These rifles were issued to the District Ward Reserve Army (essentially a National Guard) and saw service in the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War. Production ended in favor of AK pattern rifles, but the Rasheed is a very interesting and fairly rare Cold War rifle.
The Rasheed is one of only a few true direct gas impingement actions, with a tilting bolt to lock. It uses a 10-round detachable magazine, but was intended to be reloaded with stripper clips (interchangeable with SKS clips), and was not issued with extra magazines. The folding bayonet is very similar to that of the SKS as well. An adjustable gas regulator allows three different gas settings plus a cut-off position for firing rifle grenades.
A note on production numbers:
George Layman gives a number of 8,263 total produced, and this matches almost perfectly with the serial number database created by GunBoards forum ...
Over at Bobbi's blog, she mused:
"We've been sold a war on poverty, a war on drugs, a war on the border and a war on the sources of terrorism, but in every case, the conditions for victory are unclear, the price is higher than advertised and the sincerity of the pitchman is questionable."The whole "War on [Fill In The Blank]" is problematic as a mental construct. The concept of "war" promotes binary thinking, zero sum outlooks, and a willingness to transcend niceties and violate rights in pursuit of victory.
"Politicians are always searching for some grave alarm which w...

Previously the Mayo Clinic claimed Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine were “malaria drugs authorized for emergency use by the FDA during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the FDA withdrew that authorization when data analysis showed that the drugs are not effective for treating COVID-19.”
But now Mayo says:
“Hydroxychloroquine may be used to treat coronavirus (COVID-19) in certain hospitalized patients.”
This is kind of interesting and just proves that the FDA got into the business of prescribing medicine instead of approving it (for which they have now been totally slapped down). Just like ivermectin.

“Let us assume that, for whatever reason, you have decided to begin making reasonable and prudent arrangements so that if you choose to, or if circumstances make it necessary, you can live self-sufficiently, relying completely for your survival upon yourself, whatever inner strength you are in touch with, your natural environment and your skills. Your first consideration will probably be finding a safe place — a personal haven. Obviously, the location you choose should afford an environment which is not hostile to life; the climate should provide a reasonably long growing season and not be excessively demanding on you physically. …

Everyone in the Fifty States that has visited a supermarket or drugstore or discount/big-box store knows that Halloween is less than six weeks away.
Like every other popular holiday in the States (and no doubt much of “Western Civilization”), Halloween has been commercialized and profit-maximized to what would once have been considered unimaginable heights. We’ve been seeing the displays of candy and costumes and especially (at least to us, the dread specter of “pumpkin spice” everything edible or drinkable) for weeks.
But it isn’t just merchants and manufacturers who seek to maximize profit (or its equivalent) from the holiday. So too are the SJW and Woke enemies of liberty. Especially those who wish to and work constantly to end freedom of speech in the world.
Recently, an associate of TPOL was told by her corporate headquarters that she can no longer use the word “spook” when talking to people at work. Either as verb or noun. She was corrected when she referred to this period as being the “spooky time” as the once-beloved holiday approaches. That, she was told, is a no-no.
Django Unchained is one of my favorite movies of all time ever since I saw it back in 2012.

At about the 12:00 mark it talks about Louisiana and the happiness index of its people. It turns out, Louisiana is a very happy place, but not for the reasons you might suspect.
Louisiana has its problems. Poor roads, a bad tax structure, Laughable government, yet we are ahppy, especially in the rural and poor communities. Why? Family and friends.

Paul Lazarsfeld and Wagner Thielens Jr. surveyed almost 2,500 professors right in the middle of the Red Scare on whether or not they were self-censoring in light of the political climate. Nine percent of professors said they were, which by historical standards is really quite bad. Today, in 2023, that number is almost 90%.

And what was the self-censor rate in the USSR? My guess is 99.9% or higher. It is what communists do. They have to do this because the system is so broken it can only exist upon lies. The truth must be censored to avoid the abandonment and/or destruction of the communist organization.
A good rule of thumb is that the more acceptable censorship, the more the society depends upon lies to exist.
"At least six men and two vehicles were involved in the killing of Sikh separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar outside his place of worship, according to video reviewed by The Washington Post and witness accounts, suggesting a larger and more organized operation than has previously been reported."Modi can deny it 'til he's blue in the face, but two cars and six dudes is a hit squad, not some random street beef.
