China’s WeChat Admits To Secretly Scanning Users’ Photos

Chinese messaging platform WeChat – which President Trump sought to ban from operating in the United States – has admitted to regularly scanning users’ photos even while the app isn’t in use.

WeChat – which saw the Trump-era efforts to ban it halted by Joe Biden’s Commerce Department – confessed to the disturbing and intrusive practice after an exposé by a tech influencer known as “Hacklous”.

Owned by Chinese Communist Party-affiliated Tencent – which counts high-profile Biden appointees and Democratic officials as investors – WeChat “scans photo galleries for durations of up to 1 minute each while running in the background,” according to Hacklous.

“The same influencer later added that Tencent’s QQ messaging app and Taobao, Alibaba Group Holding’s top online shopping marketplace with roughly 900 million MAUs, have also been found to be routinely scanning user photos,” a report added.

Those people are serious.

American liberals aren’t

Woman Caught on Camera With Gas Can Charged in Brooklyn Yeshiva Fire

 

A 39-year-old Brooklyn woman was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment as a hate crime and attempted arson on Sunday. Sharee Jones was captured on surveillance footage last week allegedly pouring gasoline outside the Yeshiva of Flatbush and lighting it on fire. A school security guard quickly put out the fire before it could spread, and no one was injured. But it did leave local residents—several of whom are Holocaust survivors—shaken, according to ABC7 New York

LOOK OUT !!!! WEATHER HYPE !!!!!

WEATHER HYPE !!!!

 

First, anyone in the path of a hurricane whether it is a cat 1 or a cat 5, could be in serious danger and it’s important to take all caution needed.

It was only 4-5 days ago that I had heard a media person suggesting that Dorian would ravage all of Florida as a cat 5, hit the Gulf of Mexico, gather energy and hit New Orleans just as hard.

Well, shucks, looks like it changed course and that ain’t gonna happen.

I hardly pay attention to weather reports weeks or even days out with speculation on whatever the upcoming weather apocalypse is coming.

It’s not just that soooooooooooooooo often they are wrong, they are VERY wrong.

Makes for lots of yackity, yackity, yak for the talking heads.

Huh !?!?! $1,000 Video Monitor STAND????

$1,000 Apple Monitor Stand

Apple just announced a $5,000 computer screen that doesn’t come with a stand. Instead, the stand costs an extra $1,000.

It’s not made of carbon fiber or encrusted with jewels. Though the stand seems to be perfectly nice, it doesn’t appear to stand out in any particular way.

It is exactly what it proposes to be: a computer-monitor stand.

 

This isn’t just bad marketing, this is really bad optics for Apple.

Hungry Like The Wolf

I grew up in a corn field.  That is not a complaint.  I loved where I grew up and God willing, I’ll die in the same corn field (in a better way than the Spilotro Brothers).

I went to the local Jr. College my first year and for Halloween weekend, I drove a couple of hours to visit an older friend at another college for a Halloween party.  My friend was not a big partier and the party we were at was “hosted” by the service organization at the small college so it wasn’t an Animal House type bash, but it was loads of fun. (about 6 to 1 chick to dude ratio in the service club!!!)

The party probably ended about 1 am and we (some girls too) went back to my friend’s house. He turned the TV on and it was almost taking drugs (so I hear) !!!

MTV !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was something we didn’t have in the cornfields.

We all watched MTV until after 4 am and the very first music video I saw was:

380 EZ Out In The Woods

I’ve worn corrective lenses since I was about 10 years old.  Without them I was pretty close to being blind.  I started wearing contacts when I was 15 and since then was really hesitant to wear glasses.  Probably because of wearing awful tortoise shell frames and then the horrible wired rims of the early 80″s.

I got lasik about 23 years ago and it made my vision GREAT !!  I really wish I could have had that kind of eyesight (without corrective lenses) when  played sports and worked construction.  But, when I started sitting at a desk in front of a computer for eight hours day, my vision started to fade.  It’s not really too bad, I think I can drive without corrective lenses but my eye doctor says differently.

Every year when I go to the eye doctor, she asks if I want good far vision or good near vision and I have always chosen “Far vision.”  But it got to the point where I could literally not read not read newspaper sized print even with cheaters on.  So this year I chose “Near vision.”  The doctor gave me “Mono vision” which is where my weak eye is focused closer and my dominate eye is focused for distance.

THIS WAS GREAT !  I could now look down the sights of my pistol and not have to close my left eye !!  The front sight was in perfect focus.

Well, I have had some problems with my eyes and I haven’t worn my contacts for over a week which is amazing given my vanity !!  Not wearing my contacts ins’t too bad, I mostly just need glasses just to drive.

Well, just for fun, I wanted to see how well I could shoot without my contacts.  This is the first time I’ve been able to get out to “The Woods” this year to do some fun outdoor shootin’!!!!

9 rounds at 7 yards and 9 at 10 yards.  The paper is 11 X 17 so it’s not a full sized silhouette.

Fuck the Media, Fuck the Democrats

Yes I know saying “media” and “Democrats” is redundant.

For a week now, leading elected Democrats and the media have been publicly calling a sitting President a racist without a single shred of evidence.

Fuck the Media, Fuck the Democrats

We literally have nothing in common with those people anymore.

I do think though that this could well backfire on those repugnant people and convince a lot of bystanders to vote for Trump in 2020.

Gun Tip Of The Day

(remember, free advice is worth what you paid for it)

If you carry and if there is the time that you need to pull your weapon out, please be ready to drop everything else in your hands.

I have seen too many videos on youtube where a person pulls out their weapon for defensive use and they keep holding onto their coffee, wallet, purse, cellphone etc.

TASK AT HAND !!!!

So endth the lesson

Snopes Debunks Snopes As A Hoax

Snopes.com Verified to be a Hoax – According to Snopes.com

So imagine my shock when I found out this week that Snopes decided to research claims that Snopes itself was a hoax. Snopes, true to its commitment, conducted an in-depth investigation. Stunningly, Snopes concluded that in fact there was no credible evidence to support the existence of Snopes, and reported its findings at its web site, Snopes.com

But interestingly, Snopes then conducted a further investigation and discovered something even more perplexing: Its subsequent study concluded that the alarmist claims by Snopes that it does not exist were in fact just a nefarious hoax, and that Snopes was in fact real after all. It pointed to reams of statistical reports showing thousands of daily web site visits, to debunk claims that it did not exist. But it didn’t end there. Shortly after that study, yet another Snopes investigation was launched, aiming this time to determine whether or not the previous Snopes report – which had reported that the Snopes report claiming thatSnopes.com was a hoax, was itself a hoax – was in fact a hoax or not. 

As of this writing, the answer is still uncertain. It appears that Snopes has been caught in some carnival “funhouse of mirrors” endless loop of claims and counter claims about its own existence. As a result of this chain reaction of Snopes investigations into its own existence, the entire bank of Snopes web servers finally overloaded and crashed – that is, if we are to believe that those web servers ever existed in the first place.

For me, Snopes was my go to site to debunk stories that coworkers told. (I would already know, but had to prove it to them).

Then BLAMMO !!!! Obama got elected and all the sudden Snopes pretty much became liberal propaganda.

Conundrum….

Stolen from Woodsterman:

 

“A gun is like a parachute.  If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.”
The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.
        
Here are six Conundrums of Socialism in the United States of America :       
       
1.  America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.       
       
2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims. 
       
3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.       
       
4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.       
       
5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other Countries only dream about.       
       
6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about, yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
        
Think about it!  And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.     
                
By the way………….   …….

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.  And here’s another one worth considering…

 2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money, but we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money?  What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.       

 

New Gun Gadget

I got a new gadget for the guns.

A rail mount so I can attach my GoPro to my S&Ws.  The Beretta does not have a rail.

Gun_gadget_400

Here it is attached to my Compact  22.

Let’s give it a go !

Gun_Gadget_002

I shot three magazines and this was the best of the three.  I think that it will give a good body cam/POV when I use it out in the woods.

But,every shot I took, the camera dropped down.  I thought that I had it as tight as I could.

I won’t give this a fail at this point, but will definitely have to try it out some more (OH BOY, A REASON TO SHOOT MORE!!)
