Fred Reed: “The Second American Revolution”

An Utterly Objective Analysis

fred-navheader

The Revolution of 2019 began, curiously enough, in fall of 2019 when Mary Lou Johnson, the nine-year-old daughter of a ranching family outside of Casper, Wyoming, came home from her sex-ed class at Martin Luther King Elementary with a banana, a packet of condoms, and a book called Sally Has Two Mommies. Her mother Janey Lou, a political reactionary, took one look and began screaming. “Goddamit! Goddamit! I’m not going to take it anymore!”

She grabbed the shotgun, a nice Remington 870 loaded with double-ought buck, and headed for the school.

Historians would debate just what led the surrounding population spontaneously to join her. Much of it seemed to have something to do with the schools. One father reported that he snapped when his daughter came home during Harriet Tubman Week, and he asked her about Robert E. Lee.

“Who?”

Specificallly, Johnny Loggins, in the tenth grade, had been issued a condom and, in the back of his African Civilization class, was discovered to be praying for a chance to use it. This also constituted an establishment of religion. He was arrested by several of the thirty-five police patrolling the corridors and remanded for psychiatric evaluation.”

Ferguson Mayor Denied Help From National Guard

Democrat Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has been on the side of the rioters since the beginning.

jay nixon

Ferguson Mayor James Knowles told FOX 2 anchors late on Monday night that he had repeatedly requested the National Guard Monday night… But his requests were ignored.

“I know I’ve been on the phone in contact with the County Executive’s Office. I know he has requested. I am requesting. I’ve requested the National Guard troops to come out from their command post to help restore order along the business district. We have not seen that… Those calls have gone unheeded at this point… We need to have the governor step up and give us the resources that he’s promised from the beginning. He said he would have a strong response. The resources necessary would be provided. They have not been provided so far.“

THIS WILL BE THE END OF JAY NIXON’S POLITICAL CAREER.
Absolute Dereliction of Duty!”

Wind Power Is Not Renewable Energy

This is a very complete and an extremely well thought out essay on the folly of pursuing renewable energy. The writer, SIMONSCANDO, calls it a joke. But it is not a funny joke. It’s a bad joke on the taxpayer.

He make the valid point that mankind abandoned wind as a source of reliable power centuries ago because it is not reliable:

A source of mechanical power must be reliable & flexible. It is for this reason that, though the winds are strong and cost nothing; we prefer to pay for fuel for our ships in order that they should “sail” with certainty, even when the wind is contrary or absent.

If you notice you will not see any of aircraft carriers being power by wind or solar panels. Do you know why? Because of poor availability; reliability; & maintainability as defined IEC 50 (191). So if wind & so called solar is not good enough for THEM. Why should they be good for schools, hospitals, factories, & homes!”

He then tells us that we are fooling ourselves – or being fooled. Alternative energy requires fossil fuels – and lots of it.

Procurement,
Fabrication,
Manufacturing,
Construction,

maintenance;
Disposal.
All the 13 phases would be absolutely impossible to achieve without burning fuel. Fuel used for making of materials, transportations, movement of personnel working on the job, lighting of offices etc. The wind turbine projects have high FUEL COST; & high Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) cost.

“Ted Cruz Proposes ‘Detailed, Systematic Plan’ to Stop Obama’s Amnesty”

Cruz has to look at the problem from his vantage point. He is a Senator – a member of the Congress. His options are limited. This is what the Senate can do.

It takes balls to propose this. It will take a Majority Leader with balls to actually do it. Does Mitch McConnell have what it takes? We shall see.

In this clip Chris Wallace warns Cruz several times that bucking the President didn’t work well for Republicans in the past. What do you suppose he is referring to? As Cruz points out, the results were not dire like Wallace remembers them. As a result of GOP spine the Democrats and the media squalled like mashed cats. That’s all. The real result was the election of 2014 when the GOP took control of the Senate and increased their control of the house.

Wallace appears to be more afraid of Republican success than anything else. It shows where his political positions lie.

Red State: “This Means War”

It looks like the beginning of a declaration of war. The warriors are assembling. The enemy is in sight and easy to recognize. The weapons have been in the arsenal for more than two hundred years.

Impeachment.

What we are waiting for is a leader. We need someone who has a warrior spirit and can be trusted. We need someone who is not afraid to use the weapons at hand.

Impeachment has been derided by the media, the Democrats, and some Republicans. They all point backward to the Impeachment of Bill Clinton and mock the actions. Why do they do this? It’s because Impeachment is the only answer and they fear it. Their only defense, now that Republicans own both houses of Congress, is to try to make the GOP afraid to use it.

That is why we need leaders with the warrior spirit. We need leaders who will go toward the perceived danger. We have a few like that, too. It’s time they act.

obama fuck constitution

The emperor has struck. Grow a pair, withstand the inevitable blowback, and do what the Framers would have wanted.

For reasons I will soon explain, I think it is entirely legitimate and indeed quite possibly salutary for the long-term health of the republic for the House of Representatives to formally draft articles of impeachment pursuant to its Art. I, § 2, cl. 5 prerogative.

Very few seem to be urging this course of action, and the reasons cautioning against impeachment have much merit. Indeed, only two presidents have ever been impeached by the House, and both were acquitted by the Senate. Republicans, even in the subsequent Congress, will not have control of the two-thirds Senate majority needed to convict. Furthermore, the impeachment tool post-Bill Clinton has contemporarily largely been stigmatized as inextricable from a partisan witch hunt, and even though Obama’s unilateral amnesty itself is procedurally unpopular with the citizenry, the reality is that large swaths of the country are more substantively sympathetic to “comprehensive immigration reform” policy itself.

Nonetheless, I — and many others — remain convinced that this is a clear-cut impeachable offense, and it is entirely plausible that if the House fails to act in the 114th Congress by filing articles of impeachment, then the impeachment tool will truly be lost forever. Considering the Framers’ view of the impeachment tool as an indispensable congressional check on executive overreach, that would be nothing short of a travesty.”

Proper Training Is The Cure For This:

Firearms are considered to be ‘Bad’ in New York. Both in the city and the state. The guns issued to NYC cops have a special ‘New York Trigger’ that is very hard to pull. Anyone who has fired a pistol with a tough trigger pull knows it encourages inaccuracy. That may be one reason why NY cops keep shooting innocent bystanders.

But this case is different. This officer, according to the report, panicked and shot an unarmed man. That panic can only be eliminated by extensive and difficult training. Training can teach officers to think when others are out of control and it can help eliminate those who can not be trained.

NYC’s police department is not ‘Serving and Protecting’ the city’s citizens.

California State Teachers’ Retirement System Polls Teachers

CalSTRS: “We have wasted billions of your dollars. Should we waste billions more?

money toilet

The CalSTRS has a survey for California teachers.

From SDA:

My wife is a school teacher in the Oakland School District – OUSD. Yes, she deserves combat pay … and suffers from PTSD every day after work. In today’s email inbox comes a note from the CTA (California Teachers Association – UNION) an URGENT need to Survey Teachers opinions on “sustainability” as drafted by the STRS State Teachers Retirement System.

http://www.calstrs.com/whats-new/your-input-valuable-please-complete-calstrs-sustainability-survey

Seems as though STRS wants … i-n-p-u-t … on “sustainability” issues from Teachers. More specifically, should STRS PLAY with Teachers Retirement Funds in assorted “Green” Schemes (excuse me … I meant “Green” corporations) ? Since CALSTRS is underfunded by approximately $ 40 BILLION dollars at the moment … the geniuses who are running the system (my wife’s retirement checks) into a ditch … can’t think of anything better to do than GAMBLE on … “ethical” … investments that protect gaia. Don’t ask me WHY the Investment “experts” … PAID massive salaries to MAXIMIZE (I hope) the rate of return on Teachers retirement funds … need the advice of a bunch of leftist Teachers (most of them are) on suitable investments. I suppose the survey results will provide political cover for these MORONS when their investments turn into a thousand Solyndra’s. In fact, I suggest that since the Solyndra debacle raised public awareness about Federal Funding of JUNK Green companies, that the leftists in government have found a NEW source of funding for their pet green projects … PENSION FUNDS!!

Yes … lets swindle Teachers out of their retirement pay (ultimately, the CA Taxpayers who will FUND the shortfalls) to keep lining the pockets of our crony greenist-capitalists.”

Saul Alinsky

Saul Alinsky

If you want to understand what is going on read Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules For Radicals’. Alinsky aligned himself with the mob during his early life and later with the Communist Party of the USA.

rules for radicals

Both Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham studied Alinsky when they were young. Obama taught his methods but Hillary went further. She had a personal relationship with Alinsky. The met several times and exchanged correspondence. Her senior thesis was on Alinsky.

If you also study his writings you will have a better understanding of what is happening right now.

The race war is being set up. None of the leaders cares about black issues. They only know that many in that community feel anger toward non-blacks and they feed it. Witness the fact that federal Justice agents worked with protesters during the Trayvon Martin fracas. They are doing the same thing in Ferguson, Missouri. They have been helping build anger and the pressure is unstoppable. There will be riots.

Non-blacks have had a long time to prepare for those riots. Government Justice officers don’t care about the threats that are being issued against non-blacks. But they will come down hard on anyone who shoots a protester. Self-defense will not be an acceptable defense. It certainly hasn’t been for either George Zimmerman or Officer Darren Wilson. No one wants to hear facts. Emotions will rule.

When protesters are killed they will be treated as martyrs just as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown have been. The rage against ‘The Man’ and his unfair treatments of blacks will be inflamed. The news media will be complicit in this.

You do not want to be one who must shoot a protester.

Here is a piece of advice I got from two people who have retired from FEMA: Prepare for a siege. Make sure you have food, water, and fuel. Whatever you do, don’t go to the store or anywhere else during a civil disturbance.

Reginald Denny was in the relative safety of the cab of his truck during the riots in Los Angeles in 1992. He was working – driving his truck. He was stopped, dragged from his vehicle, and beaten nearly to death.

That could be you.

The destruction of Bill Cosby’s reputation from something he allegedly did 20 years ago is what happens to famous Black individuals who speak out against the destruction of the Black Family. I have to ask “Why did these woman all wait 20 years to make these allegations?”

This article says “The obvious but incomplete explanation is the Internet.”
But, the internet has been around for 20 years also.

Another ‘Good Guy Stops Bad Guy’ Story

This time at Florida State university. Three people were wounded in the 3-5 minutes it took police to arrive. Had there been someone on campus that was armed there would likely have been less carnage.

There has been a shooting in the library, stay where you are,” said a man speaking over the loudspeaker, as captured in a cell phone video posted online. “We will be coming to each floor and clearing it, and taking care of anybody.”

One of the injured students is in critical condition and another is stable at Tallahassee Memorial hospital, the hospital said. The third victim, who was grazed by a bullet, was treated and released at the scene.

Officers from the Florida State and Tallahassee police departments responded within 3 to 5 minutes of the first reports of gunfire, according to Mayor-elect Andrew Gillum.”

“The president simply isn’t going to tolerate that,”

obama gives us the finger_thumb[41]

Just who does he think he is?

He is not America’s parent. He is not king or ‘Emperor’. He’s a skinny little jug-eared politician with no experience, no credentials, and no past who wants to be King. “The president simply isn’t going to tolerate that,” came from press secretary Josh Earnest today when he tried to blame House Speaker John Boehner for Obama’s upcoming decree.

Just two weeks ago, when Speaker Boehner was doing his post-election news conference, he was asked by reporters in that news conference if he would commit to bringing up immigration reform legislation in the next Congress, and he wouldn’t do it,” Josh Earnest said during an appearance on MSNBC.

Earnest said GOP leadership was scared to allow a vote because “they know, as we do, that if that bill were allowed to come up for a vote, it would actually pass in bipartisan fashion.”
“The president simply isn’t going to tolerate that,” Earnest said.”

“Sharpton Organizing Rallies in 25 Cities for Once Grand Jury Decision is Known”

These are threats. Of course they won’t be prosecuted. Instead, police and property owners are gearing up for violence. If the Ferguson Grand Jury does not hand down an indictment – or even if it does – the demonstrators have been trained, armed, and are ready for weeks of race war.

From pzfeed:

Barack Obama, Al Sharpton

From Boston to Los Angeles, police departments are bracing for large demonstrations when a grand jury decides whether to indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.”

Of course he is.

Sharpton says once the announcement is made, demonstrators will make their voice known.”

Oakland, California police are trying to prepare:

The city is determined to be ready this time. Police Chief Sean Whent admitted his officers were caught flat-footed during the Trayvon Martin protests.
“What happened that evening was largely an intelligence failure,” Whent said.”

Detroit police say they are not expecting riots even though they have been warned by the FBI that they are likely:

The Ferguson National Response Network is planning nationwide protests following the ruling. A Detroit rally is planned at the Detroit Police Department Eastern District Headquarters, 11187 Gratiot in Detroit, at 7 p.m. the day after the ruling.

Other Michigan protests are planned at Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids and Looms Park in Jackson at 7 p.m. the day after the ruling.”

The protests are being organized by a diverse bunch of groups including the former New Black Panthers party:

Malik Shabazz, founder of the New Marcus Garvey Movement in Detroit, formerly known as the New black Panthers, agrees.

“I don’t think Detroit is going to blow up,” he said. “I’m not anticipating it, nor am I encouraging it.”

Regarding relations between Detroit police and the city’s 82-percent black population, Shabazz said: “I think there is room for growth… however, Chief (James Craig) is doing an outstanding job of reaching out to the community and under his leadership, I things are moving in the right direction.”

Shabazz feels improving the economic standing of the black community would result in improved relations with police.

“Jews are not beaten and killed by police like black people because they have traditionally had … economic power,” Shabazz said. “When you vote in piss-poor numbers and you don’t have economic power, you’re like a punching bag.”

Yep. That’s the way to keep the violence down: Name the Jews as enemies.

Politico: “Rand doesn’t stand”

Politico trends consistently left but once in a while their concerns are justified. This may be one of those times.

He tends to act – and vote – based on his principles. We have been calling for legislators like that for a long time here at the Revo. This appears to be one of those instances.

The Kentucky senator helped block NSA reform. Now civil liberties groups are feeling betrayed.

Senate Homeland Security Holds Hearing On Federal Programs Equipping Police Departments

Rand Paul says he wants surveillance reform. Instead, he helped sink it.

And now he’s under fire from the civil liberties groups who have been his strongest allies in his war on the NSA’s domestic spying program.

If Paul really wanted to help the cause of reining in the NSA, critics say he could have broken with his party and voted to let the bill move ahead — a headline-grabbing moment that would make him stand out from the rest of the Republican presidential field.

Instead, the Kentucky senator — the GOP’s most famous libertarian — voted to block the bill from even being debated.”

Paul’s explanation is that the bill was based on the Patriot Act:

I think NSA reforms are necessary and I will continue to fight against bulk data collection,” Paul said in a statement. “Last night, I stood on principle by opposing a bill that that included a provision reauthorizing elements of the Patriot Act that violate the Bill of Rights. I have always been steadfast against the Patriot Act and I will continue to do all I can to prevent its extension.”

Saint Louis Gun Shop: “We’re Selling Everything That’s Not Nailed Down”

Saint Louis area police have advised area residents to arm themselves because they can’t protect anyone. Those same residents watched the Quick Trip burn and widespread looting take place. They also saw the proprietors of a Ferguson tattoo parlor successfully protect their business from looters.

Residents have had lots of time to prepare for the worst and it looks like the worst is coming. Some p[rotesters are bragging about arming themselves.

What would you do?

metro shooting sports

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency and called out the National Guard in advance of an expected decision by the grand jury in the police shooting death of suspected Ferguson robber Michael Brown, and gun shops in the St. Louis area are selling everything they can get their hands on.

Metro Shooting Supplies, in an area near the city’s main airport, reports selling two to three times more weapons than usual in recent weeks — an average of 30 to 50 guns each day — while the jury prepares to conclude its three-month review of the case that sparked looting and weeks of sometimes-violent protests in August.

“We’re selling everything that’s not nailed down,” owner Steven King said. “Police aren’t going to be able to protect every single individual. If you don’t prepare yourself and get ready for the worst, you have no one to blame but yourself.”

Militant group offers $5,000 reward for ‘location’ of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson…

… and says ammunition will ‘solve a lot of problems’

1416344471366_Image_galleryImage_ferguson_twitter02_jpg

Not a word about these threats from local, state, or federal police forces. I suspect it would be different if they had been posted by anyone other than black.

A group describing itself as a ‘Militant Resistance’ to a ‘corrupt police state’ has offered $5000 for details of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s whereabouts, MailOnline can reveal.

Officer Wilson, 28, has been in hiding on paid leave ever since he gunned down unarmed teenager Michael Brown, 18, on 9 August.

Now, in one of a series of incendiary tweets the RbG Black Rebels have stated, ‘We are paying $5k cash for location of Ofc. Darren Wilson. Real $, no joke, no crime we just wana get his photo an ask him a few questions.’

And though the RbG Black Rebels insist this is not a bounty on the officer’s head, the chilling offer is set in the context of a stream of violent online posts boasting of ‘combat experience’, ‘stockpiling’ ammunition, cleaning out gun stores and being #WarReady. “

This is not from any US news source. It is from the UK Daily Mail where there is more.

Red State: “Shut. It. Down.”

This is from Erick Erickson over at Red State. He has been coming around lately and he sounds a whole lot smarter. In this case he reminds us of a couple of times when the government was shut down fairly recently. Everyone, it seems, blamed the Republicans and predicted dire results for them.

Which never came to pass.

As a matter of fact, the last shut down showed the American people just how small, petty, and childish Democrats can be. We all saw parks and monuments that were not just shut down, but were done so in an in-your-face manner that Americans remember.

What was the result?

House-election-results-2014-620x440

The people of the United States did not elect all those Republicans because they had brilliant visions of Utopia to sell. They did so because they wanted Adults in charge. We were tired of the fifth-grade schoolyard BS.

There is an awful lot of talk about the dangers of another shut down but we want warriors working for us in Washington. Warriors, by definition, do not cringe from danger. A proper warrior runs, not walks, toward the sounds of war.

We must stop listening to those who tell us how dangerous it would be to shut down the government or to initiate Impeachment hearings against a lawless President. And we sure as hell shouldn’t worry about Joe Biden.

Yes, yes, yes, let us concede up front that the GOP will always get blamed for a government shutdown.

Yes, yes, yes, let us concede that, in fact, polling for the GOP declined after the 2013 shutdown. But, we must caveat, some of their decline was from Republicans who decided their side had caved and were unhappy.

Now let us also concede this: many Republicans were hysterically outraged that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)93% had cost the GOP the Senate and they could potentially lose the House because of the shut down.

And finally let us concede that this did not happen.

In fact, this is the second shut down where the GOP got blamed and saw no catastrophe at the ballot box. Again, after the shutdown the Clinton years, the GOP picked up Senate seats.”
