WSJ: “Cruz Opposes Women in Selective Service”

Finally, someone takes the sane approach. The whole ‘Allow women to do any job in the military’ movement will weaken our armed services. Physical standards will be lowered to the point of unit ineffectiveness. Senator Cruz is right. It’s all about political correctness and that is stupid.

“Texas senator: Requiring women to register for the draft is senseless political correctness”

PETERBOROUGH, N.H. –Ted Cruz said Sunday a proposal to include women in the Selective Service registration was a product of out of control political correctness and warned against putting a woman soldier near a dangerous “psychopath” in a combat situation.

Mr. Cruz’s remark sets him in opposition to rivals Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie, all of whom in Saturday night’s debate announced support for registering women in the Selective Service system in case a military draft is ever reinstated.”

“French Four-Star General, Just Before His Arrest: “France is Dying””

“There shall be no dissent.”

General Christian Piquemal, the former commander of the Foreign Legion, gave an interview to “Boulevard Voltaire”, a French online journal. He took part in Saturday’s French PEGIDA demonstration in Calais which was banned by the government out of fear that it would provoke violence. The demonstration went ahead anyway and General Piquemal was arrested for his attendance.

PEGIDA stands for, “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West”. It was started in Germany.

Maybe You Didn’t Notice But That’s Just How He Operates.

This is from the New York Times’ Politics Page:

“Obama’s Lofty Plans on Gun Violence Amount to Little Action”

WASHINGTON — The centerpiece of a plan for stemming gun violence that President Obama announced to great fanfare last month largely amounts to this: an updated web page and 10,000 pamphlets that federal agents plan to give out at gun shows.

In a tearful display of anger and sadness in the East Room of the White House, Mr. Obama ordered a series of steps intended to limit gun violence and vowed to clamp down on what he called widespread evasion of a federal law requiring gun dealers to obtain licenses.

But few concrete actions have been put in motion by law enforcement agencies to aggressively carry out the gun dealer initiative, despite the lofty expectations that Mr. Obama and top aides set.

Obama administration officials said they have no specific plans to boost investigations, arrests or prosecutions of gun sellers who do not comply with the law. No task forces have been assembled. No agents or prosecutors have been specifically reassigned to such cases. And no funding has been reallocated to accelerate gun sale- investigations in Washington or at the offices of the 93 United States attorneys.”

Saints be praised. This President has, over and over again, shown himself to be shallow and uncommitted. What matters most to him is that he can Say he has taken action. It is not important that action actually occurs. Look at the nuclear agreement he signed with Iran. He gave them every thing they wanted, got nothing in return. He actually didn’t even Ask for anything. He could have suggested the release of the Americans Iran is hold in but he didn’t.

Now he can say he has taken action toward gun control because his eyes leaked when he talked about it. As the NYT notes there are no actions behind his ‘Promise’. It’s unfortunate that their editorial board is unable to see the big picture with Barack Obama. They can not see past his marvelous skin tone.

It’s not unlike the reason they support Hillary Clinton. It’s entirely because of her supposed genitalia.

“Iraqi migrant rapes a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool in Vienna and tells police it was a ‘sexual emergency'”

This story is a great argument for capital punishment. This savage saw nothing wrong with what he did. He will do it again.

30EE1AD400000578-3434708-image-a-2_1454751744814

A 10-year-old boy was so brutally raped by an Iraqi migrant in a swimming pool cubicle that he had to be hospitalised for his injuries.
A lifeguard immediately called an ambulance after the boy went to him in floods of tears, while the Iraqi was entertaining himself by repeatedly jumping off the three-metre diving board.
Police arrested him on the spot at the pool in Vienna, and during an interrogation, he told them that it was a ‘sexual emergency’ as he had not had sex in four months.”

A Good Good Cop Story From South Chicago

“Officers break the rules to save baby wounded in drive-by shooting”

11 Month-old Princeton Chew

11 Month-old Princeton Chew

The officers found five people shot, all victims of a drive-by shooting. One of them was 11-month-old Princeton Chew. Princeton’s pregnant mother and his grandmother were also shot and lay bleeding on the street.

A woman came running up to both officers holding the baby. Modzelewski knew right away the baby had been shot.

“It’s an unreal situation. Borderline helplessness,” the 11-year Chicago police veteran said. “You’re not quite sure what to do. You want to take action, some kind of action simply because it is a child, and that’s pretty much what we did.”

The officers broke a department policy, opting to rush the baby to the hospital themselves in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance.”

How Has The Increased Minimum Wage Affected Jobs Market?

Investor’s Business Daily has been looking into it. This action/reaction phenomenon is really a no-brainer. Thinking people understand that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Non-thinking people don’t care. They just want MORE.

“Minimum Wages Surged In 6 Cities Last Year; Then This Happened”

ECONwage_020416

Hiring at restaurants, hotels and other leisure and hospitality sector venues slowed markedly last year in metro areas that saw big minimum-wage hikes, new Labor Department data show.

Wherever cities implemented big minimum-wage hikes to $10 an hour or more last year, the latest data through December show that job creation downshifted to the slowest pace in at least five years.”

“U.S. eyes ways to toughen fight against domestic extremists”

The Justice Department wants to come after the three percenters.

One of the most important criminal trials in U.S. history begins March 31 in Denver for Gulf War veteran Timothy McVeigh, accused of blowing up a federal building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 and injuring 500 others on April 19, 1995.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department is considering legal changes to combat what it sees as a rising threat from domestic anti-government extremists, senior officials told Reuters, even as it steps up efforts to stop Islamic State-inspired attacks at home.

Extremist groups motivated by a range of U.S.-born philosophies present a “clear and present danger,” John Carlin, the Justice Department’s chief of national security, told Reuters in an interview. “Based on recent reports and the cases we are seeing, it seems like we’re in a heightened environment.”

The government shifted its focus to international terrorism after al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001.

But in recent years anti-government activists, like those who occupied a wildlife preserve in eastern Oregon last month, have regained prominence.”

New Word: “Heterophobic”

Poor gays are being overrun by straight people in San Francisco’s Castro district and they don’t like it.

“San Francisco’s tech bros told: quit changing the gayborhood”

When Cleve Jones, a longtime gay activist who led the creation of the Aids Memorial Quilt, went to his local gay bar in the Castro district, he saw something that shocked him.

“The tech bros had taken over The Mix. They commanded the pool table and the patio. These big, loud, butch guys. It was scary,” he said. “I’m not heterophobic, but I don’t want to go to a gay bar and buy some guy a drink and have him smirk and tell me he’s straight. They can go anywhere. We can’t.”

“Cody Wilson Announces Impending Release of 3D Files for $150 Machine Gun”

Actually, that appears to be anti-gun hyperbole. Cody Wilson, owner of Defense Distributed, has available the files with which to print the parts necessary to build an AR-15 rifle lower receiver. That this writer at 3DPrint.com calls it a ‘Machine Gun is a lie. It takes a lot more than a lower receiver to make a fully-auto gun.

Wilson has stated that he does basically have a 3D printable machine gun, going so far as to include that everything one would need to make it print is available from a hardware store. All that needs to be added is a firing pin–and a basic nail could be used for that.”

Is Segregation Now Okay If You Choose It?

“Segregated dorms for males ‘who identify as Black’ coming to UConn”

The University of Connecticut is hoping that black males will graduate at a higher rate if they spend more time with one another, and is building a new residence hall to facilitate just that.

The ScHOLA²RS House—which stands for “Scholistic [sic] House Of Leaders who are African American Researchers and Scholars”—”is a scholastic initiative to groom, nurture, and train the next generation of leaders to address grand challenges in society through the promotion of academic success in undergraduate programs at the University of Connecticut and in competitive graduate programs,” the website states.

“Is America Ruled By Law or Ruled by Power?”

Kurt Schlichter asks this easily answerable question. It is easy to answer because we have watched the slide into rule by power and the destruction of the rule of law. We, here at the Real Revo, have covered the way the laws have been ignored without consequence.

Look here,

And here,

Also here,

More here,

And last but not least here.

hillary gabbing

The question is not whether Hillary Clinton is manifestly and indisputably guilty of multiple felonies. She is.

The question is whether we are a nation operating under the rule of law, or one operating under the rule of power. I regret to say that today we are not governed by the rule of law.

General David Petraeus violated the classified material laws, and he was convicted of a federal crime. Sadly, the military declined to regain the honor its leadership has squandered excusing senior leaders’ abuses and incompetence and take his fourth star since he failed to serve honorably as a four star general. If you think a sergeant would retain his rank, or a major his commission, after doing what Petraeus did, you are – like any of Hillary’s apologists – ignorant, a fool and/or a liar.

People are in jail right now for doing what Hillary did. But she will never be held accountable any more than the IRS managers who followed Barack Obama’s unspoken guidance to harass and oppress conservative organizations were.”

We are moving steadily to a point in our country where the elite political class determines what is and is not acceptable. The power is vested in the Executive branch. It has been placed there securely by this President’s use of executive actions. It has been reinforced by the Congress’ lack of interest in slowing, even acknowledging, that he has been doing it. The courts have further given him free rein.

No one is doing anything to try to prevent this usurpation of control so it continues. No. Continues is not the right word. Actually, it is accelerating.

Schlichter is still asking questions. He has not accepted the truth.

“… we cannot let unsophisticated comments stand.”

A few students, in diversity classes, are making professors and others uncomfortable. They are asking unapproved questions.

“Panel discussion prompts UCLA professors to admit truths about diversity courses”

classroom

A panel discussion at UCLA on Saturday held to mark the one-year anniversary of the university’s mandatory diversity course requirement prompted professors to acknowledge and bemoan some of the struggles they face in teaching their various courses.

The panel included eight professors who either teach a course currently designated as fulfilling the requirement or who teach a class that will soon be designated as such, including “Understanding Whiteness in American History and Culture,” Hormones and Behavior, “Asian American Personality and Mental Health” and “Information as Power.”

[…]

Lau recalled a situation during which a foreign student asked “what if the reason black males are incarcerated more than whites is because they commit more crimes?” She said there was a total silence in the room. She then stated she wished she knew how to answer, because hard questions should be asked.

Shortly after, Assistant Professor Safiya Noble stated “we cannot let unsophisticated comments stand.” She said that as a faculty in residence for the “Afrikan Disapora” dorm floor, she has learned that “those questions outside the norm make black students feel not just microaggressed, but actually aggressed.”

So, once again honest dialog has been shut down in a house of ‘Higher Learning’.

Anheuser Busch Hires Anti-Gunners For Superbowl Commercial

We need to behave differently,” said Jorn Socquet, AB’s vice president of marketing, adding that there will be a “complete revival” of the Bud Light brand this year. During an interview in September, he said that he wanted the company to make its “advertising memorable again” and criticized its “Up for Whatever” campaign for focusing on “live today and not for tomorrow” — a theme he said didn’t resonate with young adult consumers.”

The Department Of Homeland Insecurity

This indicates two things;

1. A concerted effort by groups who are interested in doing damage, especially on air liners.

2. A severe problem within the DHS. Employees have been lax in their security standards and their superiors have been allowing it. It is incomprehensible that there would not be investigation into the loss of firearms, badges, and credentials. The moment that an employee asked for replacements of the lost items that should have generated some serious inspection. That has not happened and now there are more than a thousand badges and credentials in the hands of people who should not have them.

The guns are another thing. People like Kate Steinle have been killed with weapons stolen from these federal employees. That is unforgiveable.

This all comes from the top. The Obama administration is to blame for this laxness.

“Hundreds of DHS badges, guns, cell phones lost or stolen since 2012”

dhs logo

Hundreds of badges, credentials, cell phones and guns belonging to Department of Homeland Security employees have been lost or stolen in recent years — raising serious security concerns about the potential damage these missing items could do in the wrong hands.

Inventory reports, obtained by the news site Complete Colorado and shared with FoxNews.com, show that over 1,300 badges, 165 firearms and 589 cell phones were lost or stolen over the span of 31 months between 2012 and 2015.

[…]

While Miller said the phones are likely to have enough protocols in place to prevent them from being used for nefarious purposes, the badges and credentials are an entirely different matter and could allow access to sensitive areas such as cargo.

“The thing that’s particularly concerning is that if you get real credentials, it’s very easy to manipulate them, and you’ve got someone else’s picture on what law enforcement would see as valid,” Miller said. “Then you factor in terrorism, it’s a significant concern that people would run around with authentic credentials and be able to access areas they wouldn’t otherwise be able to access.”

Would You Like To Help LaVoy Finicum’s Family?

lavoy-finicum

Wirecutter has come up with a way to do so.

only by blood and suffering

Mr LaVoy Finicum, recently executed for the crimes of trespassing and squatting, is a published author as many of you know. His book is called ‘Only by Blood and Suffering’ and is available on Kindle for $6.99. I will provide a link at the bottom.

I don’t know of a website or fund yet to help his survivors but when I do I’ll publish it. If one of you know of one already set up and running, please let me know in the comments.

But what we can do in the meantime is to buy a copy of the man’s book. He’s still getting paid whether he’s dead or alive. I don’t know if the federales have seized or put a hold on his family’s accounts, but if they have, they gotta release them sometime.

You’ll see at the link that the book’s available for free on Amazon Prime, but that doesn’t give the family any relief. Pay the 7 bucks.”

Bizarro World

Denmark: A 17-year-old girl who was physically and sexually attacked in Sønderborg will herself face charges for using pepper spray to fend off her assailant.”

pepper spray

The teenager told police that she was attacked in central Sønderborg on Wednesday at around 10pm by a dark-skinned English-speaking man. She said the man knocked her to the ground and then unbuttoned her pants and attempted to undress her.

The girl was able to save herself from further assault by using pepper spray on the attacker, but now she may be the one who ends up in legal trouble.

“It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told TV Syd.”

On the other hand, Dutch politician Geert Wilders has been not only called for women to carry pepper spray for protection, he has been giving out canisters of it.

American women should do at least that. Better, get some training and carry a gun.

“The Gun Is Civilization”

By Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret.)

Real-Simple-Good-Guys-Bad-Guys-Gun-Meme

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.

In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.”

Sheriff Glenn Palmer said in a statement to The Oregonian/OregonLive that “the government is going to have to concede something” to end the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

He said freeing a father-son ranching team from prison “would be a start. Sending the FBI home would be a start.” He referred to the FBI’s lead role in ending the refuge occupation.

“I just pray to God that cooler heads prevail and that no one gets killed,” Palmer said.”

Things Are Not Getting Any Better In France

Sometimes you have to shoot an armed thug. Sometimes you don’t.

In the video, you’ll undoubtedly see one angry man approach the Frenchman with a baseball bat in hands. These guys are outnumbered and they know it. The Frenchman tells the migrant to stay back but, as shown, that migrant with the baseball bat doesn’t appear to be taking suggestions.

We can’t comment on the rapidly deteriorating situation in France and other parts of Europe because history is one of those strange beasts that only really appears after it’s passed the time when useful action is over. What can be said is that thankfully, for the time being, American citizens have the privilege of being able to legally defend themselves from attackers. The French concealed carrier in this video did an excellent job of attempting to de-escalate the situation.”

Tennessee: “Bill allows suits over gun-free zone incidents”

If you would prevent me from defending myself, and I am injured or killed as a result, my family and I should have recourse.

gun free zone1

From The Tennesseean:

Sponsored by Sen. Dolores Gresham, R-Somerville, Senate Bill 1736 has a very specific purpose.

“It is the intent of this section to balance the right of a handgun carry permit holder to carry a firearm in order to exercise the right of self-defense and the ability of a property owner or entity in charge of the property to exercise control over governmental or private property,” the bill states.

To accomplish that goal, the legislation allows any Tennessean with a valid gun permit to sue a property owner in the event of injury or death provided the incident occurred while in a gun-free zone.”
