Washington Post:

Hispanics on a GOP Senate: Sure, why not?

Reps

survey

This number jumped out at me from the new Washington Post/ABC News poll: It showed that, among Latinos, 50 percent say it doesn’t matter who wins the Senate come November. And among those who do think it will matter, twice as many say it would be a good thing (30 percent) if the GOP took over as say it would be a bad thing (15 percent).

This is a demographic, we will remind you, that voted 71-27 for President Obama just two years ago. And only 15 percent are concerned about a GOP-controlled Senate.”

Zombies “R” Us

zombies

A couple weeks ago I posted an article about the fact that the Centers for Disease Control had wasted a ton of money preparing a Zombie Preparedness Publication.

Now it seems that the left in our country is using the term, “Zombie” to refer to Bible totin’, gun owning, Conservatives. There has been evidence of this all along. Short films have been posted that call us and our leaders zombies.

Here is ‘Tea Party Zombies Must Die’. Also here is New York Times’ opinion writer Maureen Dowd’s column titled, ‘Ted Cruz’ Thunderdome‘ complete with this artwork:

ted cruz' thunderdome

There are plenty of other examples of us being dehumanized into the walking dead. On the surface it all looks like childish fun. But now we are seeing Obama administration offices making plans for when we zombies attack.

This is from the Rutherford Institute:

Zombies Are Us: The Walking Dead in the American Police State

For years now, the government has been carrying out military training drills with zombies as the enemy. In 2011, the DOD created a 31-page instruction manual for how to protect America from a terrorist attack carried out by zombie forces. In 2012, the CDC released a guide for surviving a zombie plague. That was followed by training drills for members of the military, police officers and first responders.”

What other actions?

So how does the military plan to put down a zombie (a.k.a. disgruntled citizen) uprising?

The strategy manual outlines five phases necessary for a counter-offensive: shape, deter, seize initiative, dominate, stabilize and restore civil authority.”

And the Institute’s conclusion:

If there is any lesson to be learned, it is simply this: whether the threat to national security comes in the form of actual terrorists, imaginary zombies or disgruntled American citizens infected with dangerous ideas about freedom, the government’s response to such threats remains the same: detect, deter and annihilate.”

Scary indeed if our government is planning for eliminating dissenters – but not too surprising.

‘Improving’ The United States

This image is from 90 Miles From Tyranny:

obama improved us

Of course the vomit image could be a reference to Ebola or it could be a reaction to Michelle’s claim. Americans across the country consider his efforts to have been spectacular failures.

But they’re not. They are successes.

Not long ago president Obama commented that his successes are, “Just not being reported”. If you examine his goals he may well be right.

He told us up front that he wanted to remake America. Observers have told us also that his goals for the country are to reduce its world position and to convert the country’s economy into something the opposite of a free, capitalist one.

If these are his goals, and I believe they are, he is succeeding. Michelle’s comment above makes a lot of sense in that light.

We should not try to determine whether he is succeeding or not based upon our definitions of success. He has a different view.

Update: Obama Promises to Solve Ebola ‘Just Like We’ve Solved Every Other Problem’

It was Obama’s Chief of Staff who said, “Never let a crisis go to waste”.

Nine US Cities Experiencing ‘Black Flight’

Maybe it’s just me but this surprised me for some reason. Maybe it’s that I never thought I’d see something like this actually Reported. In reflection, though, it seems that black people are no different than any other Americans. They want to avoid danger, they want to search for opportunity, and they are willing to go where things are better.

What’s interesting in this report is that the direction of movement has changed. Like many other Americans they are heading south.

Times have changed. There was a time when southern states were considered to be the most racially divided.

What it looks like is they are fleeing places that have been controlled by Democrats for decades. I’d say that is smart. This report comes from the Atlanta Black Star:

In the 1990s, Black Americans began moving in significant numbers to the South. This marked a reversal of the Great Migration, in which Blacks fled Jim Crow racism in the 1920s and 1930s for jobs in the industrial cities of the Northeast, Midwest and West.

Analysis of 2010 census data shows that more than half the cities with large concentrations of Blacks have seen significant declines in their Black populations. Here are nine of those cities experiencing elevated levels of Black Flight.”

detroit1-600x330

The cities that have fewer blacks are:

New York which has 41,000 fewer blacks than in 2000.

Chicago which has lost 181,000. An interesting fact is that Chicago’s population is now down to the level it was in 1910.

Los Angeles has lost more than 120,000.

Washington D.C. is down 8%.

And of course Detroit has lost 185,000.

The other cities are San Francisco, Boston, Oakland, California, and Dallas.

“A Safety Message for Civilians” From Saint Louis Coptalk Blog

A QuikTrip convenience store burns during a night of rioting in Ferguson, Missouri

The people in Saint Louis County, Missouri are worried about the possibility of violence in their streets if the Grand Jury does not indict the police office who shot Michael Brown. The police are concerned as well. They know they will not be able to keep citizens safe from violent acts. They are warning people that their safety and that of their loved ones, is in their hands.

Here is a link to the Saint Louis Coptalk blog. The message, posted by ‘A Concerned Cop’ reads,

Korean shop owners defend their shops during LA riots

Korean shop owners defend their shops during LA riots

If you don’t have a gun, get one and get one soon. We will not be able to protect you or your family. It will be your responsibility to protect them. Our gutless commanders and politicians have neutered us. I’m serious, get a gun, get more than one, and keep one with you at all times.”

The very first comment to the post comes from the blog’s moderators. It reads:

Judge Napolitano: “An armed citizenry is the best way to stop lone wolf terrorists”

He’s right. The only thing that prevented the Ottawa killer from killing others was a good guy with a gun.

This guy did this in a gun-free zone: New York. Had there been an armed citizen near he could have been stopped.

“I’ve Been To Ferguson And The Media Is Misrepresenting The City”

The violence and discord has been imported from other areas by people who do not have the best in mind for the town. And the media is portraying only that. Until this article no one is telling us about the people who live there.

From Holly Fisher at Wayne Dupree’s blog:

tent in ferguson

We drove from one end of Ferguson to the other. We saw people eating dinner, walking into grocery stores, pumping gas… Surely we missed something. We turned around and we drove back through to where we started, passing a section of sidewalk with 2 people parked in lounge chairs holding “silence is consent” posters. It was only 8 pm, so maybe the craziness hadn’t yet begun. Wayne and I went to the grocery store, (where we even saw a uniformed cop not being attacked or attacking anyone) bought snacks and went to the hotel.

“Keep the news on in your room and when things get crazy, we’ll head back out,” Wayne said.

At one point that night a dude got choked by some protestors in one part of St. Louis; rumor has it those protestors are shipped in from Chicago and not even from Ferguson.”

And she discovered that Ferguson residents are trying to heal the damage that has been done to their community. Several pastors from several churches have set up a huge tent. It has been up for three weeks. People go there every day.

My neighborhood has all skin colors. We cut each other’s grass, we invite each other over for dinner, we walk around the streets and pick up trash together. We love each other. I’m not even a Christian, but I’ve been down here every day. This is great and this is Ferguson. People don’t know Ferguson.”

She went on to blame influences like Eric Holder and Jesse Jackson for planting their negative messages into the minds of so many and poisoning Ferguson with their racist agendas.”

Paul Begala: “Candidate’s gun remarks should scare us”

Which candidate? Joni Ernst:

joni ernst

When you hear what worries Begala you may well agree. Her remarks Should worry him.

I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from a government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”
Huh?
This notion — that the Second Amendment gives citizens the right to fire upon federal officials, or their local police, or sheriffs or even U.S. military personnel — is common among right wingers. But it’s one thing to hear, say, goofball Ted Nugent honk off that way. (The Nuge, by the way, has boasted about how he avoided taking up arms in defense of his country during Vietnam.) It is another to know that someone with those loopy views is one step away from the United States Senate.”

Paul Begala

Paul Begala

Begala wrote this in a CNN piece that is designed to undercut Ernst’s chances of taking the Senate seat for the state of Iowa that she is contending for. He is afraid of sentiments like tose expressed by Ernst. He should be. The second Amendment was put in the Constitution to make sure Americans have the right to do just what Ms. Ernst was talking about and it scares the hell out of leftists whose only goal is consolidating power.

Begala was an adviser to President Bill Clinton. He is a left-wing political consultant.

Palin: “CNN, get ahold of your underlings… “

CNN’s Carol Costello found it ‘Hilarious’ that Bristol Palin was attacked by a mob

This is Governor Palin’s one and only, as far as I know, public reaction to the way CNN’s Carol Costello reacted to Palin’s daughter, Bristol, being attacked. She extends a dire warning:

cnn logo

This example makes me physically sick because they spit in the face of every American who has fought for freedom and sacrificed to protect everyone’s First Amendment rights. It’s not because this issue involves my daughter; it’s because Carol Costello, her ilk, and her boss are disgustingly dismissive and disrespectful of the sacrifices made that allow them a platform from which to broadcast their hate and stupidity. CNN is lucky to have their few outstanding employees that shine through the darkness that is CNN. I admire the good ones, and hope they land at more deserving companies when CNN goes under. Zucker, not for my sake, but for the sake of a cornerstone of our democracy—the press—get ahold of your underlings. They make you look really, really bad, and they are ruining America.”

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.”

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.”

Mark Steyn Has It Right. Rather Than Trying To Accommodate The Enemy We Should Be Getting Angry

Steyn is a Canadian citizen Who lives in the United States. Being a Canadian he is sought after by Canadian media for his opinions. In this video ha says plainly that the west is allowing Islamists to kill westerners. He says we need to be angry about the attacks. He further says that the Islamists are telling us what they intend to do and our leaders are in denial.

Steyn is exactly correct.

This is from his website where there is more wisdom from him.

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.”
