I think many of you will have seen this review coming. When Kershaw announced the “Pub” by Dmitry Sinkevich, I was beyond excited. It seems to me that Spyderco was always the de facto “weird ‘lil knives” company, but recently I have found myself straying and loving these new quirky offerings from other mainstream brands. As I have written about before, after so many reviews it’s exhausting to rehash another 3 inch drop point dressed in black G-10.I want something new to talk about and hell, ...

It wasn't pe ...
When it comes to 9/11, there are two groups of people: those who don’t know exactly what happened, and those who orchestrated it. Nearly everyone on earth belongs in the former category, but a lot of folks like to pretend they have a rock solid understanding of the events which transpired on that fateful day in 2001. Scoffing mainstream adherents like to pretend they’re confident that the official narrative is accurate, but they aren’t. A lot of hardcore conspiracy analysts like to pretend they ...
If President Donald Trump decides to withdraw the United States from the Iran nuclear deal, that would result in a lack of trust toward the U.S., Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said.Rouhani spoke with NBC News ahead of Trump's Tuesday speech at the United Nations General Assembly and addressed the nuclear deal that was struck between Iran and several countries, including the U.S."The exiting of the United States from such an agreement would carry a high cost. Meaning, that subsequent to such a ...
The healthcare issue continues to be at an impasse, with House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and the White House on Tuesday informing Senate Republican leaders they oppose a bipartisan Obamacare stabilization bill, according to a report in Politico.The Senate in July defeated an effort to pass legislation to gut major portions of Obamacare, and governors at a hearing before the Senate health committee earlier this month told Congress and President Donald Trump to get their act together to strengthe ...

Iceland’s justice system has received praise in recent years for its successful prosecution of multiple bankers who helped bring on the 2008 financial crisis. Though some of those bankers have been released early from prison, the latest controversy in the country stems from an entirely different miscarriage of justice.Last week, it emerged that Prime Minister Bjarni Benediktsson knew of attempts by his father, Benedikt Sveinsson, to have the Ministry of Justice ...
The media is less interested in Obama Administration wiretapping than in how Trump described it...This week CNN is reporting more details on the Obama Administration’s 2016 surveillance of people connected to the presidential campaign of the party out of power. It seems that once President Obama’s appointee to run the FBI, James Comey, had secured authorization for wiretapping, the bureau continued its surveillance into 2017. CNN reports:US investigators wiretapped former Trump ca ...

And to prove it, they dropped live bombs on the Korean Peninsula.The Pentagon deployed a formation of 14 bombers and fighters over the Korean Peninsula on Sunday. This blatant show of force also included South Korean and Japanese aircraft. This most recent deployment of jets was in response to a missile launched over Japan on Thursday. The missile was the cause for much con ...
In a democracy, no one should be comforted to hear that generals have imposed discipline on an elected head of state. That was never supposed to happen in the United States. Now it has.Among the most enduring political images of the 20th century was the military junta. It was a group of grim-faced officers — usually three — who rose to control a state. The junta would tolerate civilian institutions that agreed to remain subservient, but in the end enforced its own will. As recently as a few deca ...
