Saturday Night Special – A brief moment in History

The 25th of October is always remembered here on the Real Revo because this website has its roots in the Cold War. Specifically, our very name is derived from the term Grenadians have used to describe the time period between March 13th 1979 and October 25th 1983. They call those years “The Revo Years”. Anybody who has been here any length of time knows the story by now of how it all came together and how it all fell apart. Nonetheless, tonight we have something new. Okay, they are 31 Years old so they aren’t exactly new. They are images of the Operation that I’ve known existed all this time but they are images that I have only seen for the first time in all those 31 Years, just this past week. For that reason alone I decided that tonight would be a good night to present these images here.

Now, a brief word about the Grenadian Revolution…

Their Revolution was no REAL Revolution. They got rid of one Tyrant and replaced him with a gang of Tyrants. They used the generalized discontent that was created by having a brutal crazy man running their Country and used it to mobilize well intentioned people to engage in Revolution, being lead by the most evil animals their Nation ever produced. Well intentioned people handed their Country over to Dogs. Actually that is quite an insult to Dogs. Serpents maybe, by way of their educational and career choices. Their “Maximum Leader” as he was called, Prime Minister Maurice Bishop graduated from the same Law School that Bill Clinton did. Many others graduated from prestigious universities in the greater Boston area. They were highly educated murderers. Their whole revolutionary movement, like all Communist movements around the world was a slow rolling disaster from day one.

That’s not a Revolution, that’s going from the frying pan into the fire. It was made worse by the geopolitics of Grenada. Island politics are such that rivalries last Donkey Years, as they say. Some of these rivalries die out only when one side or the other dies out… or is made to die out. The strange thing is that they never really do. There are always survivors and they tend to choose their side of things, their piece of a pie, so to speak. The only thing is that there is only so much pie on an island, the people are part of the pie and for the most part there was no escaping the pie.

That was a big problem in 1983.

How To Destroy The ‘Team’ Concept

The strengths of the United States military are based on many things. One of the strongest is teamwork. Teams are made up and every member knows that the success of the team is dependent upon every member. It has made the American military the best in the world. How do you destroy that, if that is your intent? You make each and every troop more important than the rest of the team.

“Army Is Guilty Of Discrimination For Barring Transgender From Female Restrooms”

Tamara Lusardi, a transgender who transitioned from male to female, has won his case against the Department of the Army for discrimination and humiliation, based on a report from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC).

In light of these concerns, Lusardi voluntarily agreed to use the executive restroom, given that he had not undergone gender transition surgery and several female employees had expressed serious concern about sharing a restroom with a man presenting as a woman.

However, Lusardi didn’t stick to the agreement, using the female restroom on three separate occasions between January and March 2011.

Particularly egregious for Lusardi was the fact that one of his supervisors continued to refer to him as “Sir” in email communications. This made it difficult for Lusardi to sleep at night. Tamara also alleges that over the course of time he was denied work.”

The city of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, said a for-profit wedding chapel owned by two ministers doesn’t have to perform same-sex marriages.

The city has been embroiled in controversy ever since the owners of the Hitching Post sued the city. They say a city anti-discrimination law threatened to force them to marry same-sex couples now that gay marriage is legal in Idaho.”

I Have Heard That Wasp Spray Is Good For Self-Defense

wasp spray

It’ll shoot a stream twenty feet and is supposed to be effective if you spray an attacker in the face with it. After watching a convenience store clerk use it on a would-be robber I am not so sure. The robber, a woman, did not seem to be incapacitated at all.

BERLIN, Pa. — A Somerset County convenience store clerk armed herself with a can of bug spray over the weekend after a being approached by an attempted robber. What began as a typical Sunday night shift at CSI Coalfield Mini Market in Berlin became anything but for Annabelle Miller after a woman, wearing a mask, came through the front door. “That’s a heads up anyway. Then she throws this black bag on the counter and tells me, ‘Put the money in the bag,’ and I’m like, ‘What?’ So she says it again and I’m like, ‘Excuse me?'” Miller said. Without thinking twice, Miller armed herself with the closest thing in her reach: a can of Raid bee and wasp killer. Then she waited, giving the woman a chance to leave. When she did, a surveillance camera captures Miller spraying the woman in the face with the bug spray.”

Here is a report including footage from security video:

Carolina Man Exchanges Gunfire With Home Invasion Suspects

thesups-550x288

A Lumberton man traded gunfire with three men who forced their way into his home, robbed the family, tried to rape his granddaughter and stole his car Monday, Robeson County authorities said.

One of the men, identified as Jamie Faison, 20, was shot and found dead in the stolen Cadillac parked at his home on the 600 block of Singletary Church Road, Sheriff Kenneth Sealey said in a news release.

The two other men turned up at area hospitals with gunshot wounds.

The homeowner, Kenneth Byrd, 67, was shot multiple times, the release said.

Authorities received a call about 10 p.m. that someone had been shot at a home on the 100 block of Yedda Road, east of Lumberton.

Deputies responded and found Byrd, his wife, Judy, 65, and his 19-year-old granddaughter at the home.”

“Who Is Really Obsessed With Race?”

From Prager University:

If we just had a law against murder…

Evidently the shooter in Washington was 14 years old and he used his father’s .40 caliber Beretta. This means…

He broke the law against anyone under 21 possessing a handgun or handgun ammunition.

He broke the law against carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

He broke the law against carrying a weapon in a school.

He broke various laws against discharging a weapon in unauthorized areas.

He broke various laws against assault.

He broke the law against murder.

In other words, the kid broke at least a dozen laws and still managed to shoot up a gun-free-zone.

As the usual fools begin to offer up new laws in the wake of this shooting, we should ask them: Why would a kid who broke all of the laws listed above not break the new laws as well?

FEC to regulate the Revo?

They are moving to start regulating political blogs. After all, if there is one thing the government can’t have, that is free political speech.

In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on Internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that Democrats want to regulate online political sites and even news media like the Drudge Report.

Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said.

The power play followed a deadlocked 3-3 vote on whether an Ohio anti-President Obama Internet campaign featuring two videos violated FEC rules when it did not report its finances or offer a disclosure on the ads. The ads were placed for free on YouTube and were not paid advertising.

Friday Night at the Movies – Sleepy Hollow Theater

untitled (16)

Welcome one and all to another wondrous Friday Night Flight. This is our Fourth Sortie into Creature Feature Month and tonight we are going Creature Feature in every way. Tonight we get a Creature Feature in Creature Feature format, by way of Sleepy Hollow Theater. This is the Sleepy Hollow Theater presentation of Dracula -VS- Frankenstein.

This is a very rare find. How is that you ask? We have seen several versions of the classic Dracula -VS- Frankenstein battle. Surely there is nothing new to see here. You would be wrong in assuming that. This movie is only known as Dracula -VS- Frankenstein in the United States. It was known under other names elsewhere. Just last week I explained how I was looking for movies featuring the classic characters we associate with Halloween. In our featured presentation this evening we get the essential Four Horsemen of Halloween Movies. We get Dracula, Frankenstein, the Werewolf and the Mummy. These are the creatures that Creature Feature was built on. As an added bonus we get Jack Shadow and crew from Sleepy Hollow Theater giving us all the vital details that make this movie special. This is the classic Creature Feature presentation.

This movie really has it all.

AP: “Police Prepare For Grand Jury Decision In Ferguson”

This is a test of the American legal system. It will be a trial to determine if we follow standard legal procedure or if we degenerate into mob rule.

This man wants mob rule:

New Black Panther's head Malik Zulu Shabazz

New Black Panther’s head Malik Zulu Shabazz

Shabazz and others have threatened that there will be violence if the Grand Jury refuses to indict white police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown, a black man.

If those threats succeed in crafting the decision of the Grand Jury the mobs will have won. And they will know they have won and they will use the same tactic over and over again. They will threaten violent tantrums if they don’t get their way.

If that is allowed to happen the mob will be in charge and the rule of law will be ancient history.

From the Associated Press: Law enforcement officers expect to receive at least a day’s notice before a grand jury announcement. That should provide time for them to execute security plans but may also allow demonstrators to prepare.

“The moment I learn that there is, in fact, a non-indictment, then there’s going to be an organized protest,” said Eric Vickers, a black St. Louis attorney and civil rights activist.”

“Reporter to Obama Spokesman Josh Earnest:”Don’t Be Absurd With Us””

He was not only being absurd, he was being condescending.

The Chief White House Correspondent with CBS News, Major Garrett, became understandably frustrated with Obama Regime spokesman Josh Earnest after Earnest laughed off and evaded answering questions about the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services ordering enough green paper to make 34 million green cards and whether the order is related to Obama’s unconstitutional “pen and phone” amnesty for illegal aliens promise, or is simply “coincidental.”

The trick for achieving such an impressive result lies in rationing your acquisitions according to the list of purchases we suggest you follow to the letter over the next year. The tutorial featured here is very simple: start the buying spree with 6 pounds of salt in the first week, continue with 5 cans of chicken cream soup and so on until week 52. Each of the items on the list doesn’t require more than $5 per week and they will last for a while.”

Stop Paying Attention To Academics

I know, I know. The Obama administration has put an awful lot of faith in the opinions generated by members of academia.

That’s part of what’s wrong.

By academics I’m talking about tenured professors and others who have lived their lives insulated from the pain and unfairness of real life. They have never had to borrow money to make a payroll. They have never had to survive based on their own initiative and excellence. Their pay check is automatically deposited every two weeks so they never run low on anything.

And every day they are looked up to by young people, their every word is transcribed into notebooks, and they have the power to pass or fail anyone who they take a dislike to. In short, they get used to always having their opinions be law.

Here is a story of one academic who wants the world to return to the stone age.

Professor: ‘Terminate Industrial Civilization’ To Save Earth From Global Warming

Mankind is doomed unless we immediately de-industrialize and slash carbon dioxide emissions, according to Guy McPherson, emeritus professor from the University of Arizona.

McPherson appeared on Paul Henry’s New Zealand-based talk program to warn that global warming was “irreversible” and the only way to stop it is to “terminate industrial civilization.”

“I think there’s ample chance we can save the living planet, but not our species. … Some people think that this whole thing is about us,” McPherson told the Paul Henry Show. “We just showed up… I don’t think this is about us, I think it’s about the living planet.”

“The only way to stop runaway climate change is to terminate industrial civilization,” he said. “The evidence is clear on that front and it is in the refereed journal literature.”

Obama’s Fast and Furious cover-up is going strong

The self proclaimed “most transparent administration in history” has claimed executive privilege regarding Fast and Furious for Eric Holder’s wife.

Judicial Watch announced today that it received from the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) a “Vaughn index” detailing records about the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. The index was forced out of the Obama administration thanks to JW’s June 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and subsequent September 2012 FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:12-cv-01510)). A federal court had ordered the production over the objections of the Obama Justice Department.

The document details the Attorney General Holder’s personal involvement in managing the Justice Department’s strategy on media and Congressional investigations into the Fast and Furious scandal. Notably, the document discloses that emails between Attorney General Holder and his wife Sharon Malone – as well as his mother – are being withheld under an extraordinary claim of executive privilege as well as a dubious claim of deliberative process privilege under the Freedom of Information Act. The “First Lady of the Justice Department” is a physician and not a government employee.

It’s been so long, here is a reminder. Holder’s Justice Department legally acquired guns from US gun dealers, transferred them to Mexican drug lords and then, when the guns were used in all manner of crimes, blamed the US gun dealers. It was all part of the administration’s plan to to demonize gun dealers, guns and gun owners in order to advance their gun control agenda.

Subway Hatchet Man in NY

B0q-rjfIAAA02XX

One man with a hatchet, two cops down, one bystander shot.

An NYPD rookie is in critical condition and another police officer is in stable condition after being attacked by a man wielding a hatchet on a Queens street Thursday, police said.

Two other officers fired on the man, stopping the attack. The assailant was pronounced dead at the scene. A 29-year-old female bystander was also struck by a bullet and underwent surgery at Jamaica Hospital, where she’s recovering, officials said.

What do we know about the hatchetman? That’s right, you guessed it. Let’s go to his Facebook page.

NYPD-hatchet-ATTACK-isis007778870439

Based on that, I think we can say that it is a case of random street violence, don’t you think? The source of the problem is a scandalous lack of universal background checks for hatchets. Time to close the hardware loophole.
