As the summer continues to slowly roll into view, a great many Americans are finalizing their plans for some sort of fun in the sun.

Vacation is the name of the game for the USA this time of year, with Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day all just a matter of weeks away.  For some, it’s the beach.  For others, a trip to a new city to explore, eat, drink, and be merry may be in the cards.

If solitude is more your thing, you might find yourself heading to a seclude cabin up in the mountains somewhere, to convene with nature and clear your head with the crisp air of a higher elevation.

But even in this relative peace and quiet, American vacationers may still find themselves with some unexpected excitement.

On May 3, around 11 a.m. Elizabeth Strickland and her boyfriend awoke in their Gatlinburg cabin to find some unexpected company on the property – three black bear cubs.

“I saw one walk around a corner of the porch, and I ran into the bedroom to look out the windows at the hot tub and there they were!” the Knoxville woman told WKRN.

The photos from Strickland’s close encounter are incredible.

As cute as these photos appear, authorities have taken this opportunity to remind Americans that bears of any size or species are dangerous, wild animals, and should not be approached at any time.

Local Rancher Has Major Doubts About Search for Brian Laundrie in Florida Reserve

“No buzzards, no body”.

Published

on

The most wanted man in America is said to be hiding out in a vast, protected wilderness near his home in Florida, and police have now spent well over a week scouring the land for evidence.

Brian Laundrie went missing just days before the body of his fiancée Gabby Petito was found in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, some 2,200 miles away.  Laundrie had returned home to Florida without Petito, refusing to speak to police about her sudden disappearance.

Police honed in on the Carlton Reserve, a 25,000+ acre wilderness near his family home where his parents claim he went hiking the last time that they saw him.

One local man with knowledge of the area now says it’s unlikely that Laundrie is still there…if he ever was.

Florida cattle rancher Alan McEwen has spent nearly every day of the last 30 years navigating the woods where Brian Laundrie is suspected of hiding and says it’s not conducive to habitation.

“There’s no surviving out here, I don’t know how to say it,” McEwen told Fox News Digital.

The weather has played a significant role in McEwen’s belief as well, after the Carlton Reserve received a heavy dose of rainfall.

“Unless he’s got a butt like a duck and can float, he’s not in there,” McEwen said as he gave Fox News Digital a tour of the submerged park in his swamp buggy.

Some have wondered if Laundrie perhaps fled into the swamp to harm himself, but McEwen finds that unlikely as well…and for a macabre reason.

“Anything dead you find in the woods, you’re gonna look up, you’re gonna see buzzards flying like crazy,” he said. “No buzzards, no body is my theory. And I haven’t seen any buzzards flying.”

Here are the 135 GOP Congressmen Who Voted with Democrats to Take Your Guns

Democrats added a “Red Flag” law to the Defense act would give authorities the right to take your guns. And 135 Republicans joined them.

Published

on

Last week, House Democrats added a “Red Flag” law to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to give authorities the rights to take your guns away. And 135 Republicans joined them.

According to Cam Edwards at Bearing Arms:

“The military version of the red flag law proposed by Democrats looks a lot like the civilian version found in more than a dozen states. Without being charged or even accused of a crime, a service member could have their right to possess a firearm taken away from them by a military court, and the subject of the red flag order wouldn’t even have a chance to provide any evidence on their behalf for up to 30 days after the court’s order was issued.”

Edwards added that the provision has major flaws:

Just like with the red flag laws in place in states from California to Connecticut, if a person is found (through a lowered standard of review than what is used in a criminal proceeding) to be a danger to themselves or others by a judge, there’s no actual mental health component to the order removing guns. A supposedly dangerous person can be left with knives, pills, poison, gasoline and matches, and any other tool they might use to take their own life or the lives of others as long as any legally owned guns are taken away.

Let’s hope the U.S. Senate eliminates this Democrat add-on to the NDAA.

Still, despite how bad these provisions are, 135 Republicans voted for it, anyway!
