New 'Star Trek' Details Confirmed: Not an Anthology Series, Will 'Eventually' Revisit Characters

New 'Star Trek' Details Confirmed: Not an Anthology Series, Will 'Eventually' Revisit Characters
Hmm. "There's been a lot of speculation about the format and setting of the new series. What would you like to put out there now, to wet the appetite for the audience? I mean, it's funny. I've read that we're [set] before "Next Generation," after ["Star Trek VI: The] Undiscovered Country," which is false. I've read that it's an anthology show, which is not accurate. So it's interesting to see those suggestions, and seeing the truth mixed in with them and going like, "Oh, they got that part right..." But it's sort of on the truth-o-meter on PolitiFacts. It's sort of like some truth, and a lot of like, "No -- pants on fire! That's not true.""

Huge LGBT Turnout For Free Gun Courses Surprises Shooting Range Owners | RedState
People coming together and finding common ground. "It was a unique offer by the Shiloh Shooting Range in northwest Harris County, just days after the shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. Shiloh offered free gun classes to the LGBT community and hundreds of people responded. "We learned gun safety,” said Jared Anthony. “We learned that it's not ... it's a big responsibility. If you do carry, it's something that you do need to take seriously. You are providing ... you're providing a service to the community really." Anthony was one of the more than 300 people who responded to Shiloh’s offer of free concealed carry classes. The calls kept coming. "They're not necessarily what we've been told and we're not necessarily what they've been told,” said Shiloh owner Jeff Sanford."

Patterico's Pontifications » Historic House Sit-In Is Historic

Patterico's Pontifications » Historic House Sit-In Is Historic
Very historic. "The Democrats are conducting a historic sit-in which is historic. They are trying to take guns from Americans without due process, and so this is a civil rights issue, you see. (I have already discussed how Republicans have their own bills that address the concerns raised by Democrats, but in a more responsible way that does not step on due process. If the government has you on a list, it should know why it put you there — and it should not take long to explain those reasons to a judge.) The ACLU opposes the Democrat proposals. But all you’ll hear from Big Media is that John Lewis is involved, and it’s historic. Historic, I say! What’s it really about? Fundraising." It's always about the money.

PolitiFact’s Assault Rifle Fact-Check Is Short on Actual Facts

PolitiFact’s Assault Rifle Fact-Check Is Short on Actual Facts
Once again, Politifact gets it wrong. Terminology matters. "Johnson’s statement was that assault rifles were banned. But in its conclusion– and the fact-check leading up to that conclusion– PolitiFact treats it as though Johnson said assault weapons are banned. PolitiFact argues that the two are the same, when they refer to completely different types of weapons. (How they managed to fact-check a five-word statement and get one of the words entirely wrong is beyond me)."

How Zack Snyder Hopes Justice League Will Save His DC Universe

How Zack Snyder Hopes Justice League Will Save His DC Universe
We want our heroes to be heroes. This should not be a difficult concept to grasp. "They know mistakes were made with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Lessons have been learned. And as we watched filming on day 31 of the film’s 111-day shoot, with the fate of DC’s entire cinematic universe seemingly in the balance, those lessons were certainly being put into action. “The main thing we learned [on Batman v Superman] is that people don’t like to see their heroes deconstructed,” said producer Deborah Snyder. “They like seeing them in all their glory… I think what’s really great is where we’re going is kind of what the audience is wanting. We just had to take the characters from somewhere to bring them up to where they are and that was our journey.”"
