Friday Night at the Movies

Folks, I’m not in the house tonight. I had to head out of town Wednesday night. I had to get Little Miss Texas home to the Rio Grande Valley so that she could be with her Brothers and Sister as they bury their Mother. Though it is a sad time I am thankful that God chose that I should be a part of it. I am fairly sure that she will be by my side when I have to face this same ordeal. Today it is my turn to be there for her to lean on. She means the world to me.

It sure has been an exciting week in the news and now as per tradition we have a silly movie for our thorough enjoyment.

I remember when this was in the theaters. Nice little diversion to a far more simple time…

Federal appeals court rules ‘assault rifles’ protected under 2nd Amendment

ar15

The ruling states that modern sporting rifles such as AR and AK platforms are not ‘unusual’ or especially dangerous and are, in fact, in common use in the United States as defensive weapons. The same argument applies to standard capacity magazines. These firearms are, therefore, protected under the Second Amendment for civilian use. It sent the lower court’s ruling back for reevaluation.

This is a big deal.

A Federal appeals court dealt a potentially serious blow to Maryland’s landmark 2013 gun control law and similar measures across the country, ruling Tuesday that a lower court was wrong when it upheld the state’s ban on assault rifles.

In a 2-1 decision applauded by gun rights advocates, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit concluded that the semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity magazines banned by Maryland’s Firearm Safety Act “are in common use by law-abiding citizens.” As a result, they don’t fall under the exception to the right to bear arms that applies to “unusual” weapons such as machine guns and hand grenades, the court said.

Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh said Thursday that the decision “conflicts sharply with rulings of other federal appellate courts.” Frosh said he would appeal — either to the full 15-member 4th Circuit or to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The lower court must now use “strict scrutiny” to uphold the Maryland law banning the rifles and magazines. This is a very difficult, but not impossible, hurdle for the court to jump. More to come.

You’ll find the Russians to be a little less ‘tolerant’ than the Scandis

russia

“Migrants might want to make a note of it.

A group of 51 refugees were brutally assaulted outside a night club in Murmansk, Russia, after they groped and molested women at a night club Saturday.

The refugees had previously been ordered to leave Norway for “bad behavior” and tried their luck in Russia. What they didn’t realize when they went out clubbing in Murmansk is that Russians have less tolerance when it comes to sexual assault on local women than other European countries.

Eighteen of the migrants required hospitalization.

The Iowa Effect

“Iowa picks corn, New Hampshire picks presidents,” quipped New Hampshire governor John Sununu in 1988. Sununu’s clever line gets trotted out every four years. Sadly, there is some truth to it; at least in terms of Republican presidents.

That said, there is an interesting dynamic between the two states. There are two forces at play. The first effect is the bandwagon effect. This effect will have voters in New Hampshire rallying around the top three or four winners coming out of Iowa. After all, coming out of Iowa it is going to feel like a ballot for, say, Chris Christie or Carly Fiorina is a wasted vote. Nobody wants to waste his vote.

The other effect, is the “Iowa Effect”. The people of New England are an obstinate bunch of free thinkers. They are not inclined to rubber-stamp the political proclamations of a bunch of corn pickin’ hog farmers. On Tuesday morning a non-trivial percentage of undecided voters in New Hampshire decided that they won’t vote for Ted Cruz. A vote for Ted Cruz, they figure, is an endorsement of Iowa’s choice and thus place as first in the nation. They want no part of that.

I think that in New Hampshire the Iowa effect exerts a stronger pull than the bandwagon effect. That, among other reasons, will result in a Trump victory in the state.

Ironically, it will never occur to the good Yankees of the Granite State that reflexively voting to undermine Iowa’s decision is also a reaction to Iowa’s will. Just sayin’. :-)

Any Of This Sound Familiar?

Even before his coronation in 1626, King Charles I of England was almost bankrupt. His predecessors King James and Queen Elizabeth had run the royal treasury down to almost nothing. Costly war and military folly had taken its toll. The crown had simply wasted far too much money, and brought in too little.

To make matters worse, King Charles was constantly at odds with parliament. The English government was completely dysfunctional, with constant bickering, personal attacks, and very little sound decision-making.

Parliament refused to pass the taxes that Charles needed to make ends meet. But at the same time, the King was legally unable to levy his own taxes without parliamentary approval.

So, faced with financial desperation, he began to look for alternative ways to raise revenue.

One way was relying on practically ancient, obscure laws to penalize his subjects.

The Distraint of Knighthood, for example, was based on an act from 1278, roughly three and a half centuries before Charles’ coronation.

The Act gave him the legal authority to fine all men with a minimum level of income who did not present themselves in person at his coronation.

Charles also commandeered vast amounts of land, restoring the boundaries of the royal forests to where they had been during the time of King Edward I in the 13th century.

He then fined anyone who encroached on the land, and resold much of it to industries that were supportive of his reign. King Charles even resorted to begging; in July 1626, he requested that his subjects “lovingly, freely, and voluntarily” give him money. When that didn’t work, the King levied a Forced Loan, effectively confiscating people’s funds under the guise of ‘borrowing’ it.

He raised about £250,000, the equivalent of about $7.5 billion today.

Emboldened by his success, Charles eventually seized assets directly, including all the gold on deposit being held at the Royal Mint– money that belonged to the merchants and goldsmiths of England.

At one point Charles even forced the East India Company to ‘loan’ him their pepper and spice inventory. He subsequently sold the products at a steep loss.

If any of this sounds familiar, it should.

Today there is no shortage of nations facing fiscal desperation. Most of Europe. Japan. The United States.

In the Land of the Free, the government has spent years… decades… engaged in the most wasteful folly, from multi-trillion dollar wars to a multi-billion dollar website.

US debt just hit $19 trillion a few days ago. And it’s only going higher.

We can already see the government’s financial desperation.

Over the years, the government has effectively levied a ‘forced loan’ totaling more than $2.6 trillion on the Social Security Trust Fund, whose ultimate beneficiaries are the taxpayers of the United States.

Bottom line, they’re ‘borrowing’ YOUR money.

Last year the government stole more from Americans through ‘Civil Asset Forfeiture’ than all the thieves in the United States combined. In December, the US government confiscated $19.3 billion from the Federal Reserve, which, by the way, was already very thinly capitalized.

Even if you want to believe the propaganda, it’s clear that these are not the actions of a healthy, solvent government that embraces liberty. In fact, the government published over 80,000 pages of laws, bills, regulations, and executive orders last year. Just this morning they published another 308 pages.

It’s impossible for anyone to keep up with all of these rules. And yet each can carry civil and criminal penalties, including a fine now for not having health insurance.

As Mark Twain used to say, history may not repeat, but it certainly rhymes. Financially insolvent governments of major superpowers do not simply go gentle into that good night. They don’t suddenly turn over a new leaf and start embracing economic freedom.

Instead, they get worse. More desperate. More destructive.

Should we honestly believe that they can continue racking up more debt than has ever existed in the history of the world without any consequences? This is madness. At some point, fiscal reality always catches up. Maybe not at $19 trillion. Maybe not even at $20 trillion.

Maybe it takes 3 months. Or 3 years. But somewhere out there is a straw that can break the camel’s back. And that has serious consequences. Never forget that if something is predictable, then it’s also preventable. And facing such obvious trends, it makes all the sense in the world to take some simple, rational steps to put together your own Plan B.

Nah, this is just Trump being Trump. Whenever Trump acts like a normal, rational, respectable human being, his poll numbers drop.

Conversely, whenever Trump drops trou and shows his ass, his poll numbers soar.

Ye shall mark thy homes….

Untitled-1

…or suffer my wrath!

DES MOINES, IA—Declaring that all voting-age citizens who took the measures would be spared, Hillary Clinton ominously instructed her supporters throughout Iowa to mark their front doors with her campaign logo before sundown, sources confirmed Sunday. “All those residing in Iowa take heed: Your home shall bear the mark of my campaign this eve, or may God help you,” said the Democratic candidate after dispatching a phalanx of campaign staffers to all four corners of the state to spread the message of her directive. “Be within your dwellings with the doors closed and locked before nightfall, and do not cross the threshold before the sun rises again in the sky. The emblem of the red-and-blue H will protect my true voters.” At press time, Clinton issued a statement ordering all Iowan supporters who remain on Monday morning to bring forth their progeny between 18 and 34 years of age to the polls.

Rise Of The Protest Voters

I have given up on the idea that our ship can be righted.

TrumpSupport_0

Many gave up before me, refusing to vote for the previous two RINO candidates. “Do what it takes to win”, we implored them. “We can’t afford to have a Barack Obama presidency.”, we exclaimed. Those who refused and stayed home weren’t buying it. They were sick and tired of the serial abuse they’d suffered at the hands of their  Republican overlords. It took me longer to protest, but I’m there.

I don’t think that our society will ever have enough people get involved in the nitty-gritty of party politics to right the ship. That is the ONLY WAY to force the RINO’s to do your bidding. The only way short of hemp and street lamps, anyway. The problem with electing our way to correction is much deeper and more pervasive a concern – the deep state. Even if we magically awoke to a compliant Republican Party and 100% participation rate, the deep state would continue on, unmolested. Changing heads and changing parties accomplishes absolutely nothing but to slow the inexorable tide of progressive infiltration. Our government is simply too large.

I gave a speech at the first Tea Party rally in 2009. I had people screaming and cheering my words until I mentioned “their” entitlements. Progressives only want to protect the “rights” that they like or things that – while not rights – they think should be rights. Likewise, many in the smaller government crowd want to cut government down to a more manageable (constitutional) size, but they don’t want to lose their “investment” in the leviathan.

Those who control the beast don’t want to see anything go away. Every dollar taken from the budget directly translates to a loss of control for these power brokers. Thus, these power brokers do the dancing monkey routine, crying with us during the campaign, only to stab us in the back as soon as they have the opportunity. This abuse of our trust, over the past two decades, has caused many of us to lose hope that anything can be changed. So, we sit out of the elections or we cast a conscience ballot which ultimately becomes a vote for the greater-of-two evils, regardless of which party you tend toward.

Evil. Always. Wins.

In 2008, people were so tired of GW Bush that they voted for the most-unlike-Bush. They elected a black, crypto-marxist of dubious provenance because they liked what he had to say. He said things that didn’t sound like the other guy. He gave voice to their anger. Again in 2012, after four years of failure, more people stayed home who would normally vote Republican, and once again the crypto-marxist failure was elected.

Populists_0

This year, a man has joined the cacophony of disgruntled Republican voices; a amn so bold as to say all of the many things that everyday Americans utter in their private conversations, but never hear on a national platform. Nevermind that his brand of Hopenchange™ will be completely ineffective. Never you mind that he has spent his entire life as a New York progressive. Forget about the fact that lacks a fundamental understanding of – or respect for – the US Constitution. Disregard his promise to abuse executive orders or act unilaterally.

Donald Trump is capturing the populist vote. So is Bernie Sanders. From both sides of the isle, the people have become so disgusted with the political process as to back whomever is the greatest departure from what we have been offered. These people are the protest voters.

On the left the protest voters are ready to go full retard. On the right, people like me, would rather “waste” their vote than vote one more time against their principles. People who fall into the “independent” portion of both sides of the spectrum (typically 1/3 of those identifying as either right or left of center) are squarely in the Outlandish Candidate camps.

When considered in light of the vast numbers of people who just don’t give a crap, can’t be bothered, or would rather waste their vote – this is shaping up to be an election to end America as we know it.

But then, the dream of America that we’ve been holding on to has been gone for some time, hasn’t it?

The tRUMP Cult

TRUMP-LIVES-620x605

I have no words for this. It’s no different than the cult following that Herr Obama had back in ’08. This poster scares the shit out of me. It reminds me of those pamphlets that the Jehovah Witness’ leave on your doorstep, portraying graphic images of sinners being cast in a lake of fire for being non-believers. In this poster, we see lost souls enthusiastically following a false prophet which will ultimately lead to their doom.

I don’t think it’s a parody.

The slack-ass bum who wants to rob you…

His name is Bernie Sanders and he has the passionate support of slack-ass bums coast to coast.

His family managed to send him to the University of Chicago. Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check.

“I never had any money my entire life,” Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington.

Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — “We will raise taxes;” he confirmed Monday, “yes, we will.”

One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.

Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”

Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him.

The only thing he was good at was talking … non-stop … about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. “The whole quality of life in America is based on greed,” the bitter layabout said. “I believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation.”

Of course he does. Slack-ass bums always want to steal the earnings of those who actually create wealth.

Here are a bunch of slack-ass Iowans who strongly support their slack-ass candidate. Oddly, they seem really angry about another progressive candidate when asked.

What do Trump and Sanders share in common?

I mean beside their shared desire to continue Planned Parenthood funding, increase ethanol mandates and erect barriers to international trade. They both want to take Obamacare to the next level and institute true universal health care. Here he is on Meet the Press yesterday.

We’re going to work with our hospitals. We’re going to work with our doctors. We’ve got to do something. You can’t have a — a small percentage of our economy, because they’re down and out, have absolutely no protection so they end up dying from, you know, what you could have a simple procedure or even a pill. You can’t do that. We’ll work something out. That doesn’t mean single payer. And I mean, maybe he’s got no heart. And if this means I lose an election, that’s fine, because, frankly, we have to take care of the people in our country. We can’t let them die on the sidewalks of New York or the sidewalks of Iowa or anywhere else.

Don’t worry. I am sure when Trump gets busy working with hospitals, free health care won’t result in shortages, rationing and increased costs. Not this time. Not with Trump. He gets deals done.

A Sunday Sermon

Good morning Real Revo. It is a beautiful day. It is another opportunity to live and do what you can do to make the world a better place.

An ever shrinking segment of the population observe this day with rest and worship. I find that it gives balance to my life. I need a day of rest and worship to help keep me focused and energized during the week.

This week I am especially thankful because the Lord has shown me once again that he keeps his every promise. He has given me a future and a hope. He has a plan for my life much greater than I am able to imagine. He has truly lifted me up and made all things new. I thank him. I praise him. Mostly I want to show him my love by being obedient to him. Regardless of what I do it will never be enough to measure as a grain of sand against what he has done for me. He poured out the punishment I deserve on his Son, Jesus Christ. He bought this miserable sinner at a very high price, a means to escape what it is that I deserve. He has given to me freely so many things I do not deserve and he does this because he loves me far more than I can comprehend.

He loves you the same way. If you like you can come take a seat in the Real Revo Chapel. No need to get dressed up. Come as you are.

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.

Polish Resistance Catholic Holocaust Survivor…

If you are ever visiting the Washington D.C. Area and get down on the National Mall, you will probably not want to go see the National Holocaust Museum. That’s because you know that it will not be a pleasant experience. I recommend that you go see it anyway. It will remind you of how ugly Evil truly is. It will cause you to see the Evil of the days we are living more clearly. It will make you understand why every effort to crush that Evil is worthwhile.

The Chivalry of Fisticuffs

Several Years ago when I was living on a Shrimp Boat down in Florida Cracker Country, I witnessed a fist fight that involved about 20 Teenagers. It was quite interesting because the fight traveled. It didn’t stay in one spot for long. When it moved out across a field from us we watched it through binoculars. It was quite amusing.

What I really found amusing was a remark that was made by one of the parents of the boys involved. Someone asked if we should go out there and break it up. The wise man I speak of said “Nope”, took a swig of Beer and said “Let ’em fight”.

“Whenever there’s a fist fight there are no losers. You either learn some respect or you earn some respect. Either way, everybody’s a winner”.
