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.”

After more than a few weeks

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.”

Impartial FEC Officer Campaigns For Democrats

She should be fired and jailed for her actions.

But, then, who will file charges against her, Eric Holder?

Ann Ravel is vice chairman of the Federal Election Commission

Ann Ravel is vice chairman of the Federal Election Commission

The top Democratic commissioner at the bipartisan Federal Election Commission is traveling to battleground states weeks before November’s midterm elections, engaging in what a former commissioner and an FEC observer call an “unprecedented” and “totally inappropriate” attempt to ignite public opposition to the Citizens United decision and promote Democratic positions on campaign finance.

Ann Ravel is vice chairman of the FEC, a six-member commission tasked with regulating campaign-finance laws in the United States. Composed of three Republicans and three Democrats, the commission’s chairmanship rotates each year, with Ravel’s term beginning in 2015.”

Football Coach Fired For Letting Players Eat Watermelon

These kids bought the melons themselves and saved them for rewards if they won. One busybody, politically correct, parent connected in his mind the watermelons and stereotypes of black people. So he, or she, officially objected and got a popular, successful coach fired. That is pure meanness. It’s insensitive to both the coach and the team members.

How can idiots like this be dealt with? I suggest laughter.

Watermelons-DT

A winning high-school football coach was fired after the team’s tradition of eating watermelon after games was deemed “inappropriate” and “racist.”

Bud Walpole had been coaching Academic Magnet Raptors football team, and was in the middle of a very successful season, according to CBS Charlotte.

A current Raptors player said the tradition began when players bought watermelons from a man who had been selling them on their route to the game. If they won the game, the team decided, they would eat the watermelon. After they did win, they smashed the watermelon on the ground and then ate it. (The team had to smash their victory fruit because they, understandably, did not have a knife on the sidelines.)”

The real question that comes from the article is, “Was he fired or not?” The last two paragraphs leave one wondering:

This parent’s complaint led to a Charleston County School District investigation into the watermelon-eating and Walpole’s eventual firing.

Walpole will still be allowed to teach at the school. Thousands have signed an online petition demanding that he be reinstated as coach.”

Great Idea! Darts Matches For The Blind In Britain

It sounds like great fun.

Blind darts player Richard Pryor with pub landlord Joe Fryer at The Dolphin Inn in Grampound.

Blind darts player Richard Pryor with pub landlord Joe Fryer at The Dolphin Inn in Grampound.

CORNWALL’S first blind darts team is preparing for its inaugural game at a Grampound pub – for charity.

The four wholly visually impaired teammates will make their first appearance at the village’s Dolphin Inn on Thursday.

Richard Pryor, who lost his sight 40 years ago, said the idea was mooted after a few pints at the pub, where the group of friends, called the Optimists, meet monthly.

Mr Pryor, 68, said: “While we were down the pub the other day, Joe, the landlord, mentioned that Rotary had organised for pubs to take part in the a Fast Darts competition.

“He asked if we wanted to put in a blind darts team. After three pints I am up for anything and we said yes.”

Here’s how they do it:

This Is Hate Speech Against Christians In Florida

Illustration to be Handed Out at Public Schools: Human Bible Sexually Assaulting Woman

That’s what it is, all right. The source, CNS News, warns readers that the image below may be offensive to some. They’re right. It is offensive. But I think Revo readers are entirely capable of dealing with nonsense such as this.

I don’t think this pamphlet is illegal. The first Amendment protects it. What is offensive to me is that the school officials may allow it to be distributed to children.

(CNSNews.com) – The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist group, is planning to hand out in several Florida public high schools a pamphlet that features an illustration on its cover depicting a humanized Bible sexually assaulting a young woman.

The pamphlet is entitled: “An X-Rated Book: Sex and Obscenity in the Bible.”

The front cover of the small purple booklet is illustrated with a cartoon Bible–which has arms, legs, face and drooling mouth–sexually assaulting a screaming woman as she tries to escape its grasp.”

“Eric Holder: ‘I take personally as a failure’ the inability to pass gun control”

Holder seems to be unaware of what his job is. He is Attorney General. That job tasks him with upholding the laws of the country. What he is regretting here is not that. It is the establishment of new law. That is not his job. It is the job of the Congress to create new laws.

It is past time that this power-hungry black power activist leave the Justice Department. He is incompetent and he chooses whether to pursue a defendant based on the color of his skin, not on whether he has broken any laws.

I fear that this President will replace him with someone equally evil and equally biased activist.

holder pensive

This story is from the Washington Times:

I think the inability to pass reasonable gun safety laws after the Newtown massacre is something that weighs heavily on my mind,” Mr. Holder said during an interview with CNN.

He was speaking of the White House push to pass a federal background check mandate for all commercial gun sales, as well as an outright ban on so-called assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines, in the wake of the December 2012 school tragedy.”

Someone’s Actually Saying It: “UK’s Disastrous Wind Power Policy the Result of Deluded “Green Blob” Politics”

Choose to ignore Owen Paterson’s warning at your Country’s peril.

Choose to ignore Owen Paterson’s warning at your Country’s peril.

As for wind farms, it seemed a bit strange that an innovation designed to save our beautiful world wreaked unique havoc on the best landscape. When we learnt that wind power needed vast amounts of conventional power back-up because of intermittency, we started to see it as the greatest physical folly in our island story.

Yet no mainstream political party engaged with this. You could tell that they were worried about the symptoms of their own policies – hence Ed Miliband’s call for an energy price freeze. But none wanted to discuss the causes. Owen Paterson, then the environment secretary, was the only minister who dared raise doubts. He annoyed what he calls the “green blob”. David Cameron duly sacked him this summer.

In the Global Warming Policy Foundation lecture on Wednesday, Mr Paterson said of wind farms that “this paltry supply of onshore wind, nowhere near enough to hit the 2050 targets, has devastated landscapes, blighted views, divided communities, killed eagles …” When this was quoted on the BBC News, he was saying no more than millions of ordinary people have been saying for years. Yet it was very striking to hear it in public, because no other elected person charged with these responsibilities had said anything like this before.”

Remember, Obama Care Is Just The First Step Toward National Health Care

Harry Reid was not the only one to say so. Now we see how it was designed to fail.

FIRST STEP: Obamacare is only the first step to a more fully-socialized single-payer health care system, according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, right.

FIRST STEP: Obamacare is only the first step to a more fully-socialized single-payer health care system, according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, right.

HHS-Funded Study: Obamacare Will Suffer ‘Death Spiral’ If Subsidies Fail

The Obama administration has funded a new study by top consulting firm RAND Health that startlingly finds that if taxpayer subsidies are eliminated, Obamacare exchanges will fall into a “death spiral.”

The study comes in the wake of a number of lawsuits which are challenging the Obama administration’s implementation of Obamacare subsidies. Three lawsuits have made it to U.S. Circuit Courts, just one step from the Supreme Court, arguing that the text of the Affordable Care Act allows premium subsidies for state-run exchanges only. (RELATED: Second Court Strikes Down Obamacare Subsidies In Federal Exchanges)”

It’s always been about the subsidies. Federal subsidies were included in the Affordable Care Act to make the insurance premiums affordable to Americans in need of health insurance. But subsidies have a history of being reversed when political winds change direction. When that happens people will no longer get help with their insurance premiums from Uncle Sam. What will they do? They’ll stop paying.

This has all been made more complicated because many states refused to set up exchanges, forcing the estamlishment of federal ones. The courts have said, twice now, that people who got insurance through federal exchanges do not qualify for the mandated subsidies.

In the process of all this the companies that provide insurance will decide it is no longer profitable to do so. This has already started. When people don’t buy insurance, whether because they can’t afford it or because it’s not available, Democrats will try to ride to the rescue with single-payer nationalized health-care plans.

It’s all part of the plan.

Brigid Is Hunting Deer

Thanks to Glen I have learned about it.

On the Hunt – Rain

IMG_0396

The rain hangs like sheets, whipped by wind, the air as sodden as fabric. I can’t see 100 yards, but I don’t need to. I might be treading water today, but I probably won’t be hunting.

Deer camp in a rain storm. The deer aren’t moving now. and neither will I. It came up quickly, things in the high country don’t meander in slowly. One minute the sky was a pale grey blue, a tuft of cotton building up against the peak. The next, all if that water just emptied out of that gentle hue, sluicing from the sky as I rushed for shelter, too far from the camp to get under real cover.

So I sat and waited. It’s easier when you’re not alone.”

I Had Heard About This But It Wasn’t ‘Til This Morning I Saw It

It’s not just women who feel unsafe because of his (in)actions. President Obama has made the United States – Indeed, the world – less safe. We are in a more precarious and tenuous position in almost every way than we were when he was elected.

Tina Brown: Obama Makes Women Feel Unsafe

For women, I don’t think he makes them feel unsafe. They feel unsafe economically, they’re feeling unsafe with regard to ISIS, they’re feeling unsafe about Ebola . . .

I think they’re beginning to feel a bit like Obama’s that guy in the corner office who’s too cool for school, calls a meeting, says “This has to change,” doesn’t put anything in place to make sure it does change. Then it goes wrong, and he’s blaming everybody.”

Here’s How You Defeat Laws That Allow People To Carry Guns:

It’s so simple. Crazy people don’t get permits so you class everyone as crazy!

From the New York Times:

Mental Health Issues Put 34,500 on New York’s No-Guns List

A newly created database of New Yorkers deemed too mentally unstable to carry firearms has grown to roughly 34,500 names, a previously undisclosed figure that has raised concerns among some mental health advocates that too many people have been categorized as dangerous.

The database, established in the aftermath of the mass shooting in 2012 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and maintained by the state Division of Criminal Justice Services, is the result of the Safe Act. It is an expansive package of gun control measures pushed through by the administration of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo.”

“Report says U.S. may OK more centrifuges in Iran nuclear talks”

That headline is deceiving. It should read, “Report says Obama may OK more centrifuges in Iran nuclear talks”, because he is doing this without the consent of the Congress or the people.

Here we go again with amateur hour. Obama says ahead of time what he will give but does not say what he will require in return. He is willing to allow Iran to install thousands more centrifuges and lift sanctions.

The Iranian leaders know full well that this is just his opening bid – that they can get more by just demanding it. They also know he will accept promises from them that they have no intention of keeping.

iran centrifuges

The Obama administration has sweetened its offer to Iran in ongoing nuclear negotiations, saying it might accept Tehran operating 4,000 centrifuges, up from the previous 1,300, according to a semiofficial Iranian news agency.

The Mehr news agency also said Monday that Iran and the six world powers seeking to negotiate a nuclear deal remained divided over how much uranium-enrichment capacity the Middle East nation should be allowed to maintain, and how to lift punitive sanctions from its economy.”

Another Racial Attack On University Of Illinois Campus…

… This makes 45 such attacks in the area since the first of October.

SEVERAL U OF I STUDENTS ATTACKED BY ROVING GANG NEAR CHAMPAIGN CAMPUS, POLICE SAY

The ABC7 I-Team is reporting a rash of random attacks near the University of Illinois flagship campus. A safety alert for students was posted after Champaign police say five students were jumped and beaten by a roving gang over the weekend.

One-by-one early Saturday morning, a gang of men attacked several people as they walked down streets near the U of I campus. For about an hour, the gang roamed a small section of Champaign and police say they targeted random victims, beating them to the ground, in what resembles a big city gang ritual.”

Did I say racial? Yes. Here’s why:

Investigators describe the attacks as black males, 25 years old, and each wearing dark clothing, possibly driving in a blue sedan or SUV.

While police have not publicly identified suspects or a motive for the mob violence, random-victim beatings are consistent with some street gang initiations. “

U of I must be a gun-free zone.

So Obama Is The Second Coming – Or Something

Have you read Barbara A. Thompson’s book, “The Gospel According to Apostle Barack: In Search of a More Perfect Political Union as “Heaven Here on Earth”?

the gospel according to apostle barack

Thompson is an academic, a Professor with Florida A&M University.

Prof. Barbara Thompson

Prof. Barbara Thompson

The College Fix tells us about the book: “PROFESSOR’S BOOK HAILS ‘APOSTLE BARACK,’ COMPARES HIM TO JESUS”. They also tell us:

Professor Barbara Thompson, its author, told the school’s student newspaper during a book signing Tuesday that the 220-page undertaking, largely a compilation of his speeches, was a result of divine inspiration:

Her son … was the impetus behind the book. After a bad accident, Barbara Thompson prayed for her son to be healed. After her son’s healing, she had a dream when the spirit of God spoke to her and told her to ‘go on a journey with apostle Barack.’ …

Apostle, a leader with a new cause, is how Thompson defines Obama.

“He walks the earth for a more equalized, more middle class and working poor society,” she said. She compared apostle Barack to apostles like Jesus and Martin Luther King Jr.”

… (During her book signing event) she provided a complete breakdown of the good that has happened during the President’s 4-year term. Healthcare, the economy, education and federal initiatives interests are the ‘Good news’ from the apostle.”

Gay Patriot quotes from her book:

[A]s I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s (His) Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor. Apostle Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of “heaven here on earth” for his followers. The answers were repeated – over and over – in speeches Barack had made from his presidential announcement to his inaugural address. Those speeches or his teaching.s contained the answers to the middle class and working poor people living in a “heaven here on earth.” For when the answers were unlocked and enacted, Apostle Barack’s vision of America would be realized.”

She sounds like a nut. It looks like her students think so, too. Florida A&M’s professor ratings have comments from students. Two comments:

“Doesn’t have a clue.”
and
” WORST TEACHER..EVER! she has the worst attitude and is not willing to help students RUNNN!!!”

These people are teaching our kids to be insane.
