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.

“Everyone else’s discomfort is secondary to mine.”

“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 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.”

He further says that the Islamists are telling us what they intend to do and our leaders are in denial.

Steyn is exactly correct.

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.”

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.”

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.

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.”

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.”

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.

NYT Publishes Officer Darren Wilson’s Story. Animals In Ferguson Promote Killing

Just how satisfying can murder be? If Officer Wilson is not indicted it looks like there will be killing.

xspooky-police-.jpg.pagespeed.ic.R-450M0d8F

The story in the New York Times tells us that Wilson, “… Is Said to Recount a Struggle”. That wording leads us to believe that Wilson’s story is not truthful. That kind of reporting is inflammatory as we are seeing. There are many in Ferguson, MO who want violence, as the post above shows. The fact that forensic evidence supports Officer Wilson’s story means nothing to them:

The forensics tests showed Mr. Brown’s blood on the gun, as well as on the interior door panel and on Officer Wilson’s uniform. Officer Wilson told the authorities that Mr. Brown had punched and scratched him repeatedly, leaving swelling on his face and cuts on his neck.”

There have been no shortage of death threats. The one above is not the only one:

WaPo: “The government wants to study ‘social pollution’ on Twitter”

‘Social Pollution.’ Now there’s a new term. What does it mean? It means any information that is not approved by the regime.

George Orwell predicted this back in 1949. His book, Nineteen Eighty-Four, coined terms that have become parts of English lexicon; terms like Big Brother, Newspeak, and thoughtcrime.

big-brother-watching-obamacartoon

The National Science Foundation , a federal agency whose mission is to “promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity and welfare; and to secure the national defense,” is funding a project to collect and analyze your Twitter data.

The project is being developed by researchers at Indiana University, and its purported aim is to detect what they deem “social pollution” and to study what they call “social epidemics,” including how memes — ideas that spread throughout pop culture — propagate. What types of social pollution are they targeting? “Political smears,” so-called “astroturfing” and other forms of “misinformation.”

Instant Justice For Would-Be Purse Snatcher

I laughed out loud. This is in Chile in the city of Concepcion.

Chubby opportunist Pablo, a serial thief, was left prisoner on the bus with one hand trapped inside the door, which he had tried to force open when he realised they were closing.

And worse was to come – when the hero driver radioed police and then took out a baseball bat he kept for self defence and started bashing the criminal around the body.

The bag thief, said to have several assault, theft and robbery convictions, tried to wriggle out of arrest by claiming his victim was really an aunt called Maria who lived in the countryside and he had been joking with her.

But the driver told him in slang Chilean: “I’m badder than you” – before reducing him to tears as he continued to whack him.

Police were waiting at the next stop and handcuffed the thief before taking his smartly-dressed victim away so she could make a statement.”

Why Do You Suppose The Secret Service Wanted The Nashville Police To Lie For Them?

It’s interesting that the Nashville cops said, “Pound sand.” It is also apparent that the Secret Service has, like many other federal Bureaucracies, gotten out of control.

Following the resignation of Secret Service Director Julia Pierson, Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson sent a letter to the House Oversight Committee stating that Secret Service agents has asked Nashville police officers to falsify an illegal search warrant against an unnamed critic of Barack Obama, who allegedly posted “threatening” comments about the criminal-in-chief in January 2013.

In the Nashville case, a Secret Service agent made a frantic call for backup to Nashville police after he and another agent went to the home of a Nashville man, investigating threatening comments on Facebook about the President. The man who posted them had refused to let the agents into his house.

“He shoved the door in our face and went around the corner. Looks like, we’re not sure if he … possibly he had a gun in his hands,” the agent told a 911 operator.

In a letter that he first sent to Secret Service headquarters, the Nashville police chief recounted what happened.
“The resident refused to come outside and shouted back, ‘Show me your warrant,'” Anderson wrote.

So “one of the agents then asked a [police] sergeant to ‘wave a piece of paper’ in an apparent effort to dupe the resident into thinking that they indeed had a warrant.”
