From the Desk of John Rourke – February 17th, 2017



I watched President Trumps speech yesterday and was impressed. Although he boasted on himself as usual the content was consistent with the direction he ran on and was elected. I liked him standing up to the media.

Taking a couple shooting tomorrow. One has never pulled a trigger before. Looking forward to it.

Tech billionaire issues stark warning saying artificial intelligence could DESTROY human race which is already ‘part cyborg’ because of its dependence on smartphones.

Interesting. Although many of us may not see the extent which artificial intelligence reaches in our lifetime consider the incredible technology that has been and will be included within military weapons. Weapons that “think” for themselves and select targets – scary.

I am proud to announce the creation of the new Facebook Group1776PatriotUSA – Freedom Firearms Patriotism Preparedness. This is community where members can post topics they care about and everyone can discuss. Great way to connect with like-minded folks. If you are on Facebook check it out.

Also connected to this website is a fan page called The Patriot Page. This is a page where announcements and posts related to politics, firearms, preparedness, and this website are posted several times per day. Some good discussions go on there with some of the posts. I post some humorous things as well.

Although I am not the biggest fan of FB – it is a fantastic platform for people to connect in ways that without it would be extremely difficult.
