Big Business Saturday

Pomp and Circumstance gives way to the business at hand.

There are lots of stories about the Royal Reception in Saudi Arabia. They laid it on thick over there. The first overseas trip that the previous President made was to give a speech in Cairo and talk about a bunch of Bullshit. President Trump’s first overseas destination looks to be all about business.

Tomorrow we will be reading about how Trump has failed in his first overseas engagement.

Friday Night at the Movies Powers Boothe Double Feature

Everybody loves Powers Boothe for his natural ability to portray characters who are dark and often times just plain crazy. It doesn’t get darker or crazier than Jim Jones. This is one of his most well remembered works.

Friday Night at the Movies honors the memory of Powers Boothe

Welcome to the Real Revo Theater and the Friday Night Movie. Tonight we remember the body of work of a most brilliant wild man from Texas. Any time I think back to a brilliant scene from a movie when he was at his crazy ass best it makes me smile and/or laugh. Being able to naturally scare the crap out of people through subtlety is a gift that I admire. All the more so when that talent is utilized in full-on bat shit craziness.

I first became acquainted with him as Corporal Charles Hardin of the Louisiana Army National Guard. Southern Comfort scared the crap out of me and a couple of years later made paddling rubber boats in the greater Eglin Air Force Base Training Areas all the more enjoyable. Yes, most of us carried unauthorized live ammo because of that movie, as mentioned earlier this week by RD. It is totally true. Powers Boothe was awesome in that movie and I wish it was available tonight.

Then I encountered him as Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Tanner, United States Air Force in Red Dawn. As was the case in Southern Comfort, he was the indispensable character. The movie would have flopped without him. I surely wish that movie could be available here tonight. It’s a movie I love to watch.

Yes, there will be a Double Feature tonight. I found two movies where Powers Boothe plays the leading man. First up is one that has played here before buts it’s been a couple of years ago. Powers Boothe is back in the Air Force Major Cassidy, Pilot of a B52 Bomber. With Rebecca De Mornay as his Co-Pilot they are called upon to carry out a nuclear strike against the Soviet Union in reaction to an unintentional nuclear attack by our Cold War Foe.

Of course there are many memorable roles that the man we remember here tonight has played and I wish we could see them all. I’ll take what I can get because it’s always good. I love B52 movies. In this particular classic we also see James Earl Jones return to the Air Force for crucial service during a Nuclear War only this time he is of a much higher pay grade than he was in Doctor Strangelove. This time he is the General with the call sign “Alice” up in the Looking Glass.

This is a Cold War classic and one of the many great movies where I enjoyed watching this crazy wild man do what he does best.

Enjoy…

The opening move in the 2020 Presidential Election has been made

May 18th 2017.

I am really starting to think that the next Presidential Election is going to be more entertaining than the last. Anticipating a weakened opponent and driven like Piranhas on Meth by their Rage, every Democrat who ever entertained the thought of entering the race is going to jump in. Then Dwayne Johnson is going to enter the Ring and do to them what Trump did to the Republican field.

The Rock knows how to sell…

Robert Mueller appointed to be Special Counsel

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel to oversee the previously confirmed FBI investigation of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election and related matters.

“I have determined that a Special Counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome,” Rosenstein said in a statement.

Story HERE

I’m looking forward to this. Sounds like a lot of fun.

As far as Obstruction of Justice is concerned, this is what I am reading…

The memo allegedly says that the president said, in a private conversation with Comey at the White House, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

That does not come close to reaching the legal threshold for Obstruction of Justice. You see, I once faced a charge of Obstruction of Justice. I’m glad they didn’t pursue it (got me on a Firearms Offense) because I was guilty as sin.

THIS is what Obstruction of Justice consists of…

     Obstruction of Justice

Obstruction of justice is defined in the omnibus clause of 18 U.S.C. § 1503, which provides that “whoever . . . . corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be (guilty of an offense).” Persons are charged under this statute based on allegations that a defendant intended to intefere with an official proceeding, by doing things such as destroying evidence, or intefering with the duties of jurors or court officers.

A person obstructs justice when they have a specific intent to obstruct or interfere with a judicial proceeding. For a person to be convicted of obstructing justice, they must not only have the specific intent to obstruct the proceeding, but the person must know (1) that a proceeding was actually pending at the time; and (2) there must be a nexus between the defendant’s endeavor to obstruct justice and the proceeding, and the defendant must have knowledge of this nexus.

§ 1503 applies only to federal judicial proceedings. Under § 1505, however, a defendant can be convicted of obstruction of justice by obstructing a pending proceeding before Congress or a federal agency. A pending proceeding could include an informal investigation by an executive agency.

When you’re dumb enough to believe your own bullshit you will inevitably walk into an ambush of your own making. Feel free to quote me on that.

This seems like an odd trajectory to me

Then again, I’m not a Rocket Scientist.

The latest North Korean Missile test landed about 60 miles South of Vladivostok. That’s about as dumb as it gets. Not sure how Putin will react to that. I’m thinking he will be as cold as ice. There will be no public statements. There will be some quiet movement of Forces. There will be some changes in readiness. Might I even dream that there will be coordination for a joint nuclear First Strike by the Russian Federation and the United States? I think it’s time for the North Koreans to get serious about killing Fat Kim and save themselves from being incinerated and radiated.

Here’s what I find odd.

The missile traveled 430 Miles laterally, gaining a maximum altitude of 1,245 Miles.

I had no idea that anything from North Korea could actually fly that high. Still you would think that they would get more range out of something that flies that high. For every mile the missile travels laterally it attains 3 miles in altitude to do so. That just seems kind of odd to me but like I said, I’m not a Rocket Scientist.

A Mother’s Day Sermon

Happy Mother’s Day. I am especially blessed to still have my Mother with me here on Earth. She loves me like nobody ever could. In a few minutes I am off to join her at Church and then Sunday Lunch. I am going to enjoy every minute of it. Those of you who are not able to spend Mother’s Day with their Mother know full well why that is. Tomorrow isn’t promised. Many of us here look forward to seeing their Mother again on the other side.

God’s greatest expression of Love for us has been made through Jesus Christ. As for me, his second greatest of Love for me was when he gave me my Mother. Happy Mother’s Day everyone.

At the link below you will find the streaming webcast from North Jacksonville Baptist Church. The webcast will stream content all day, along with the live webcast of our Sunday Morning Worship Service that starts at 10:45am East Coast time. Please feel welcome to join us.

Mad Brad’s Movie Review – La La Land

The storyline takes place in Hollywood. It’s a movie about a Jewish pianist who drives a really cool ’83ish Buick Convertible who falls in love with a malnourished Space Alien. I fear for his life throughout the movie. At any moment I expect her to go full Space Alien and rip out his rectum through his mouth. He does finally escape though.

Don’t watch it. I know it won awards. Don’t let that fool you. At first you think that maybe Hollywood was trying to make an old school musical. There was dirty dancing on the freeway in the opening scene. Then you see this movie for what it really is. It’s a Sci-Fi Drama. There’s some good music but at any moment you expect a giant serpent to launch out of the mouth of the leading lady and strangle the leading man. I was expecting a kill throughout the movie.

Don’t watch it.

Friday Night at the Movies

Welcome to the weekend. It’s the Friday Night Movie, the most anticipated publication of the week. Sometimes, such as has been the case in the previous two weeks, I don’t get to put as much into this effort as I feel it deserves. Sometimes life gets in the way. Nonetheless, one way or another we have our movie. Sometimes the movie sucks and other times it doesn’t. One way or another, we have our movie though. This is our little temple of entertainment.

This week I have been dealing with Jet Lag recovery and am not fully back in the groove. Well maybe by now I am but this week has been a little crazy. I came back from vacation and the Gross Profit Dollars for my Monthly Sales ate at 166%. WHAT? That just doesn’t happen but the rest of my team want to go on vacation right about now. I had to jump in the shark tank this week and start stroking wide open. Thusly I haven’t had the time to dedicate to proper movie selection as I know it to be but there is always danger in trying to over think it.

I think I’ve found one tonight that is going to be highly entertaining. I think you will enjoy it, even those of you who haven’t registered to comment yet…
