Last week, a group of anti-Trump protesters thought it would be a good idea to block traffic on a road. Unfortunately for them, however, they quickly learned they’d made a huge mistake.
Mad World News reported that hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Tucson, Arizona for their “Day Without Immigrants” protest. When they blocked a road, local police warned them that they would be physically removed from the vicinity if they did not let traffic through. When the protesters refused to cooperate, the cops had no choice but to take action.
The video above this story shows the protesters pepper sprayed and taken down by officers who have had enough of their liberal nonsense. Four people were arrested for their roles in the violent protest, and they have been identified as:
24-year-old David Leon; aggravated assault on a peace officer (felony)
68-year-old Joan Cichon; aggravated assault on a peace officer (felony)
42-year-old Tanya Alvarez-Blancarte; aggravated assault on a peace officer (felony)
39-year-old Najima Rainey; obstructing and failure to identify (misdemeanor charges)
Rainey can be seen in the above footage screaming for help as the officers try and drag her from the road. In typical liberal fashion, the protesters are now claiming that they are the real victims.
“All we’re doing is letting our voices be heard and that can’t even happen,” said Tey Echea, one of the protesters. “They pepper spray and throw the lady on the ground.”
“They threw the lady on the ground first. I was next to her. I was reaching down to help her up. And as I was reaching down to help her up is when they took the guy, took the spray right in my eyes. In both our eyes,” said Rolande Baker, another protester.

“He was armed and dangerous but so is my mouth” – Jennifer Bail is a hero to her family of four after doing the unthinkable to save their life. A Texas woman is a hero to her family of four after giving a robber head long enough to distract him so that her husband could hit him in the back of the head with a chair while the children escaped.
“To say I’d do anything for my children would be an understatement at this point. Plus he wasn’t a minute man so it was a lot of work.” – Jennifer.
Jennifer’s husband Raymond only had one thing to say about the ordeal …
“She’s never gave me head like that, but we will talk about that later. For now I’m just glad our children our safe.”
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.”
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.”
Would you be this calm if a mountain lion walked up to you? I know what I’d be doing (and it would mean a change of pants!)
The chilling stare of a mountain lion is cold enough to send shivers of fright down any spine. These top-of-the-line predators, although seldom seen, are cunning killers. Then again, after watching this video, it turns out they might just be overgrown pussycats…
Daniel Bradford shot this stunning footage in Northwest Montana. After finding fresh scrapes, he decided to utilize a hand call in the hopes of luring a big cat in. He got his wish – and from a front-row seat, at that.
If you think Bradford was sitting safely inside a locked vehicle, think again. He was sitting on the ground, back against a tree, wearing a pair of blue jeans. The cat was a mere sixteen feet away when it noticed him.
In fact, he’s probably still thanking his lucky stars that he survived, since the next time he captured footage of a mountain lion, he didn’t do it in person:
Who doesn’t enjoy looking at vintage gun ads? It’s a blast to see how they marketed firearms years ago, not to mention the prices! If only we had a time machine.
Here are 20 beautiful vintage gun ads from a bygone era. While some of these ads are from long ago, some are fairly recent. They speak to not only much cheaper pricing, but also to the changing cultural mores of the day.
Good grief, check out these prices back in 1961!
A Colt Python for only $125!
In 1902 you could purchase a Marlin model 1892, 1893 or 1894 for $10 to $13.25 apiece from the Sears, Roebuck & Co. Catalogue.
Back in 196o you could buy a .55 caliber anti-tank gun for under $100.
Christmas was – and in many families still is – the perfect time to give the gift of a rifle or shotgun to a youngster. I can still remember with such joy and excitement my very first .22 single shot rifle I got at Christmas time as a child. No doubt many adults cherish that memory as one of their transitional from-boy-to-man moments in their lives.
Santa has an arsenal to deliver!
The whole family should get guns for Christmas!
And heck, why not get yourself a present too?
Personal and home defense was also a popular selling point from early on:
And some old advertisements are probably culturally taboo nowadays:
Such as this one that promoted hunting tigers, which would raise a lot of hackles today.
This one seems to put firearm handling together with alcohol consumption.
Given our current climate, it probably would not go over too well to show a youngster with a so-called “assault weapon”, even a toy one. That’s a shame.
Ok, this one is just weird and dangerous, I don’t care what the ad says!
Finally, I don’t know what the heck is going on in this one. A gun turret in place of your refrigerator? I guess this one was trying to play off of WWII imagery, but boy, is this a stretch.
Jeep fans have been asking for a Wrangler-based pickup truck forever…
Jeep teased with pickup truck concepts, like the Gladiator concept and the J-12 concept shown above, but never pulled the trigger on a production model. That all changes for 2017: The next-gen Wrangler will finally, finally offer a pickup variant, right from the factory.
Jeep global chief Mike Manley told The Detroit News that the Wrangler pickup will arrive in late 2017. “Sergio and I work very, very closely on the Jeep product portfolio, and both of us have been a fan of a potential Wrangler pickup,” he said. “For me, there is a historical place in our lineup for it.”
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.
