ICE Just Raided Home Depot And Made HORRIFYING Find Hidden Inside That Proves EXACTLY Why We Need Trump

There was a time when several Home Depots once featured several dozen day laborers nearby waiting for work, but it appears that the supply is shriveling as the U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement are seeking to deport as many as 3 million illegal aliens that have criminal records.

Following President Trump’s presidential executive order, “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements,” that was issued on January 25th, ICE raids across the nation have already detained 680 high priority individuals for deportation.

Although the number seems large, shockingly it is only .07 percent of the 950,062 non-detained aliens with deportation orders on the list as of May 21, 2016.

When the question was asked by Grassley as to why there were so few in custody, Homan’s answered: “Individuals on ICE’s non-detained docket with final orders of removal are released under conditions designed to ensure their compliance with their immigration obligations.”

This means with virtually zero general purpose interior removals in the last couple of years, the latest survey found that we there were an estimated 11.1 million illegal aliens in the U.S. back in 2014. This number has come down from 12.2 million that was found here in 2007.

BUT…those numbers are not as shocking as what you’r about o hear. Of these illegal aliens, about 72 percent are employed and with that number to so high it equals about 5 percent of the ENTIRE U.S. workforce…

Do you think all this going down now will lower crime across the board? What are the effects that you predict if President Trump’s executive order sweeps out illegal criminals leaving us to be self-reliant again like it was back in the days when we didn’t pay people to do nothing, and immigrants came into the country receiving no benefits and learned to make it on their own instead of costing tax payers large sums of money for their benefits…despite them NOT being citizens of this country?

Marine who raised first flag on Iwo Jima dies at 94

 “Among the men who fought on Iwo Jima, uncommon valor was a common virtue.” – Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz

unnamed

First Lt. John Keith Wells, the Marine commander responsible for raising the first flag atop Mt. Suribachi, died on February 11, just days shy of the 71th anniversary of his time on Iwo Jima.

“He was a very warm, sensitive, spiritual man, all the way to age 94,” Connie Schultz, Wells’s daughter, told Denver 7.

He was also tough as nails.

“Give me 50 men not afraid to die, and I can take any position,” Wells said during the transit to Iwo Jima.

On February 19, 1945, he was ordered to lead the 3rd Platoon, Company E, 2nd Battalion, 28th Marines, 5th Marine Division in an assault up the base of Mt. Suribachi. In keeping with his claim, he succeeded.

1st. Lt Wells’ platoon is believed to be the most decorated platoon in Marine Corps history for a single engagement. His individual awards included a Navy Cross, a Bronze Star, and a Purple Heart.

Here is an excerpt from his Navy Cross citation:

When ordered to attack across open terrain and dislodge the enemy from a series of strongly-defended pillboxes and blockhouses at the base of Mount Suribachi, First Lieutenant Wells placed himself in the forefront of his platoon and, leading his men forward in the face of intense hostile machine-gun, mortar and rifle fire, continuously moved from one flank to the other to lead assault groups one by one in their attacks on Japanese emplacements. Although severely wounded while directing his demolition squad in an assault on a formidable enemy blockhouse whose fire had stopped the advance of his platoon, he continued to lead his men until the blockhouse was destroyed. When, an hour later, the pain from his wound became so intense that he was no longer able to walk, he established his command post in a position from which to observe the progress of his men and continued to control their attack by means of messengers.

In a 2013 interview with the Arvada Press his daughter Connie said, “He didn’t give an order. His men just followed him because they respected him so much as a leader.”

Even after several wounds, including shrapnel and a chunk of his leg being severed, Wells continued to lead his men until he physically couldn’t do move because of severe dehydration. But he wasn’t down for long. He convinced a corpsman to give him sulfa powder and morphine so he could get off the hospital ship and back to his platoon.Once Wells reached the base, one of the flag raisers, Charles Lindberg, helped him the rest of the way.

According to the 5th Marine Division’s “Legends” page, after the first flag was raised Wells’ commanding officer ordered him to relinquish command of the platoon and return to the aid station. Wells reluctantly passed the platoon to Sgt. Ernest “Boots” Thomas who was killed in action several days later. Wells remained on the island, although unable to lead his troops, until the island was declared secure.

Wells’ daughter pointed out that the famous Iwo Jima flag raising photo, the one used to design the Marine Corps Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, was actually the second flag raised on the island. “The first one caused so much emotion that [one of the commanders] ordered a bigger flag be flown,” she said.

After World War II ended, Wells attended Texas Tech College and obtained a degree in Petroleum Geology. He worked in the oil industry and served in the Marine Corps Reserve until 1959, retiring as a major.

In 1995, he published a memoir titled Give Me 50 Marines Not Afraid to Die.

“He honored and loved the Marine Corps with all his heart and soul,” his daughter Connie said. “His last words were, ‘My family.’”

WOMAN ENDS UP IN ER AFTER MIXING UP HAIR MOUSSE WITH BUILDERS’ FOAM

Okay, this is like the worst hair day of all time. Yesterday, a photo of a woman sitting in an Eastern European hospital waiting room started circulating around the Internet.

According to the reports, she accidently mistook builders’ foam for hair mousse. Yes, now she has a big ol’ helmet of polyurethane foam on her head. That was all the information given surrounding this photo, then again if a picture paints a thousand words, this one could be summed up in far fewer.

Now if you look carefully at the photo, you’ll notice some leaves and twigs in the foam. Perhaps there is more to the story than what’s being passed around on the Interwebs? I can’t say.

A 1,200-year-old Viking sword found in Norway could still be used today

While hiking an old mountain trail in Haukeli (on the border of Telemark County, Norway),  Goran Olsen was surprised to discover a 1250 year old Viking sword among some rocks near the road when he sat down to rest. The sword was in excellent condition, especially considering its immense age.

The sword was taken to Hordaland County Council, where local archaeologists working for the council were elated to have the opportunity to study such a beautiful artifact. County conservator Per Morten Ekerhovd said, “It’s quite unusual to find remnants from the Viking age that are so well-preserved. It might be used today if you sharpened the edge”.

Preliminary analysis shows that the 30-inch (77 centimeters) iron sword is from about AD750, and according to Ekerhovd, it’s an important find that will shed light on early Viking history.

Wrought-iron arms and armor were expensive at the time and they were regarded as a high-status symbol. The owner of this sword was probably a wealthy and influential person and not some average Viking. Professor Alexandra Sanmark, a Viking expert at the University of the Highlands and Islands in Scotland, said: “The common idea about Vikings was that they wore big, metal helmets, but they probably wore leather helmets. The metal would’ve gone into making these fabulous weapons, which have more like steel, it’s really high quality.” Source: Hordaland County Council, independent,

Norwegian archaeologists think that the sword is part of a burial for a high-status person. Wealthy individuals used to be buried with hundreds of valuable objects: weapons, armor, riding gear and even with their horses. The Viking sword has now been sent to the University Museum of Bergen for further study and restoration. Haukeli’s mountains are buried in frost and snow for six months, but due to climate change, artifacts have increasingly started to turn up along mountain paths in the last few years. Because of this, more clues are revealed how the Vikings lived and died.

Jostein Aksdal, an archaeologist with Hordaland County, plans to begin excavation on the location where the sword was found; he says that “If we find several objects, or a tomb, perhaps we can find the story behind the sword.”

A new type of axe shows us an easier and smarter way to chop wood

This Leveraxe Splitting Axe, Vipukirves 36-inch is now available for purchase on Amazon.  There is a lot of debate about how much more effective this is than what is currently available on the market.

Here’s a recent user review of the axe from October:

“I’ve never written an Amazon review even though I’ve purchased some remarkable products (shame on me). However, after purchasing this product and literally tearing through nearly 2 cord of mixed wood (maple, birch, oak) over the weekend I am compelled to sing it’s praises.

This axe is the safest, most efficient, most effective splitting tool I’ve used in 35 years of processing wood. It took a bit to figure out the technique, but once I sorted that out the wood was just exploding on impact. Thankfully I also adopted the tire surround approach shown in the youtube videos so I didn’t have to chase the pieces all over the place.

While I’ve heard from others that they can achieve similar results with an axe, I am convinced that this tool is dramatically safer than either an axe or maul. The Leveraxe does not go through the material and is light enough that I was able to split for several hours at a time without significant exhaustion.

The only remorseful moment I had was when I realized that I only have 3 more cord to split and given how much fun it is to split with the Leveraxe that is just not enough wood. I think I’m going to need to fire up the chainsaw.”

Scientists capture an amazing video of a deep sea fish with “feet”

So much of the deep sea is unexplored that it isn’t hard to find something that hasn’t been seen before and amazes us.

During NOAA’s Okeanos exploration of the Mona Canyon off the coast of Puerto Rico during the Oceano Profundo a deep sea fish was filmed walking along the bottom. The Pink Frogmouth, Chaunax pictus, is a type of anglerfish that uses modified fins to “walk” across the seafloor.

The pink frogmouth has a depth range of 200 – 978 meters and has been documented in both the Atlantic and Mediterranean. The food of choice for this walking fish is exclusively shrimp.

EXIT POLL SHOCKER: Trump Beating Hillary By Incredible Margins In Florida

Florida landslide incoming? In an unofficial exit poll conducted by Naples Daily News, Donald Trump is taking Florida by storm. In the small sample of under 150 people, Trump garnered around 65% of the votes, whereas Hillary Clinton got around 25%.

There were only two votes for Gary Johnson and a single write-in vote.

Marco Rubio also has very similar numbers, beating opponent Patrick Murphy by nearly a 3 to 1 ratio.

Pennsylvania Teen Stops Domestic Assault By Pointing Shotgun At Abuser

It’s interesting how staring down the bore of  a 20-gauge shotgun can help a man reacquaint himself with civility:

A 13-year-old boy had to point a shotgun at a Bloomsburg man to get him to stop choking his mother in a December altercation at their home, Locust Township Police Department reported in filing charges earlier this month.

Samuel Russell Bennick, 34, of 335 W. Fourth St., Bloomsburg, was charged with a misdemeanor count of simple assault, criminal mischief and theft by unlawful taking, and three misdemeanor counts of recklessly endangering another person for his alleged actions on Dec. 25 and 26 at the home of his girlfriend of 55 days, Wendy Champoux, of 209 Quaker Meeting House Road, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

I’m very relieved that this young man had the courage to act decisively to save his mother, and that he did not have to fire the 20-gauge slug in the chamber to stop the assault. Going Walt Kowalski was enough.

Sometimes we forget that the best defensive gun uses—and by far, the most frequent ones—are those where the mere presence or display of a firearm stops a crime.

Domestic violence is not okay, but leaving your abuser doesn’t always end the abuse, and a restraining order is just a piece of paper.

Take a class. Connect with a group in your area. Protect your firearm and teach others gun safety.

Together, we can empower women to strengthen their personal protection plan to ensure they are never victimized again.

The HK416 is new rifle of the French Armed Forces

The French confirm, Heckler & Koch confirms. And now it is clear: the future of the French Army is German. HK416F is going to be the new standard weapon and will replace the FAMAS which has been used since the 1970s. 102.000 guns in the calibre of 5,56 mm x 45 NATO and 10.767 grenade launcher (HK2969F) in the calibre of 44 mm x 46 are also sold. Additional accessories, ammunition, various components, as well as services with a running time of 15 years will also arrive with the new rifle.

Heckler & Koch managed to succeed against Fabrique Nationale from Belgium, HS Produkt from Croatia, SIG Sauer from Eckernförde in Germany, and Beretta from Italy. But what is so special about the newHK416F service weapon for soldiers in every arm of the services (army, air force and navy) in the French army that will be established as of 2017? Udo Lücken from PMA-ODAL did some research for SOFREP on the data of the new French standard weapon:

hk416f-s_hk269f1
The variation HK416F is based on the HK416A5 and can be used by left and right handed shooters. The clasp and the linkage of the HK416F is a gas pressure loader system which is similar to the AR-15 by Colt. The weapon will be delivered to the French army in the variations HK416F-S (standard, 14.5” –pipe/368 mm) and HK416F-C (commando, 11”-pipe/279 mm) in the ground color black (for missions in arid terrain with the color concept RAL8000).

The weapon features a cold-hammered barrel with six grooves and a right hand spin. With a magazine capacity of 30 cartridges (or optional 20 round magazine) the HK416F corresponds to the NATO standards. The shot modes are safe, single fire, and auto, and they can be adjusted on both sides. The theoretical shot cadence is about 850 per min.

hk416f-s1

The total length of the HK416F can be changed by adjusting the shoulder stock support from 741 mm to 842mm (C-commando) or from 831mm to 931mm (S-standard version) for every soldier as he needs it. The weapon has a width of 77 mm (without attachments) and a height of 253 mm (without sight help). Therefore, it is comparatively slim and easy to grip. The S-version has an empty weight of 3.755 g; the C-version is slightly lighter with a weight of 3.450 g. Even though the HK has an open flip up sight, it also has sufficient capacity for further options caused by the numerous Picatinny rails. The sight distance is 340m and gives the possibility for precise fire.

Besides France, also Norway has already made the HK416 their standard weapon. Even the army’s Commando special forces (KSK) and the antiterrorism unit, the border protection group 9 (GSG9), are using the HK416. Experts are already saying that the gun is the successor to the army’s G36. Further user countries are Czech (Special Forces), the Netherlands (Korbs Commandotroepen) and Poland (GROM). In the United States of America the HK416 can be found amongst the members of Delta Force, DEVGRU, and the US Army’s Asymmetric Warfare Group as well as at the Marine Corps in a modified version M27 (infantry Automatic Rifle) as an light machine gun.

TYRANNY: Americans Who Make Own Ammo Get Alarming News From Lawmakers

Despite the American people making their stance against stricter gun control abundantly clear, anti-gun liberals nevertheless continue to propose further infringements upon the Second Amendment-protected natural right to keep and bear arms. Perhaps realizing they lack the support for a full ban or confiscation efforts, some anti-gunners are pursuing a more circuitous route to try to limit the number of effective firearms in the hands of the citizenry by going after the ammunition that is fed into those firearms.

Case in point: a new law proposed in the state of Illinois that would have each individual bullet sold in the state stamped with a traceable serial number, according to WFLD.

Ostensibly promoted as a way to crack down on the rampant gun violence in places like Chicago, the process would, according to gun control activists, allow police to recover bullets and spent casings from crime scenes, locate the unique code on each piece, and trace it back to the store from which it was sold, potentially discovering the individual who purchased the ammunition.

“We just want to know how the guns and the bullets are getting into the hands of our youth and causing senseless harm and murder on our streets,” explained Rep. Sonya Harper.

Gun store owners immediately decried the proposal, noting it would require immense amounts of paperwork on their end, would create a virtually impossible task of keeping records for every ammo purchase, and was not a serious solution to the gun violence problem in the first place.

“Don’t go after these bullets and this bullet stamping thing — that’s ridiculous. Go after the gang bangers, the people who are let out on the streets from parole,” said Fred Lutger of Freddie Bear Sports, a gun store located in Tinley Park.

While this proposal on its face appeared to be little more than a major inconvenience for licensed gun store owners and ammo dealers, left unsaid was the massive effect it would have for the community of gun ownerswho reload their own ammunition at home.

Should this law take effect, it would prove essentially impossible for reloaders and home manufacturers of ammunition to continue doing what they do, as they would be required to enter the expensive and red tape-choked bureaucratic mess of gun law compliance.

Furthermore, it remained unclear whether the law would mandate stamping a code on the actual bullet itself, or merely the shell casing that contains the bullet. Experienced shooters know that bullets become exceptionally deformed after being fired and hitting a target, which would likely make any code stamped on it unreadable and therefore worthless.

Also, actual bullets aren’t always recovered from crime scenes or shooting victims. A code stamped on the casing would make more sense, but would still be an expensive bureaucratic nightmare that would do little to stop criminals, as they could simply make sure they recover their spent brass following a shooting.

In truth, this is just another unworkable and ignorant idea from the anti-gunners who simply don’t understand how firearms work and refuse to address the underlying root causes or perpetrators of gun violence, which have very little to do with gun store owners or ammo reloaders.

Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to spread the word that the anti-gunners are going after ammunition … again.
