“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.

Senator Mikulski, Remember That Oath You Took?

This has been the oath of office for the United States Senate since 1884:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

79 year-old Senator Barbara Mikulski seems to have forgotten it.

Senator Mikulski

From the Daily Caller:

I look forward to…listening to the attorney general and listening to this wonderful panel that you’ve invited to participate today,” Mikulski, a Democrat and ardent supporter of gun control, said in her opening remarks ahead of a Senate Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Subcommittee hearing, which heard testimony from Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

“So let’s solve the problem,” Mikuski urged. “Let’s not get involved in constitutional arguments, and let’s help our American people be safe and secure in their home, their neighborhood, their school and their house of worship.”

Senator Mikulski has succumbed to the ‘Beltway Disease’. She is a prime example of what is wrong with American politics and politicians. She is also an excellent argument for term limits. She is a domestic enemy.

German People Show Their Displeasure With Islamic Rapists

“Vigilantes hunting for ‘justice’ for New Year sex attacks carry out beatings on random foreigners in Cologne”

Six Pakistani men and one Syrian attacked on by vigilantes in Cologne

Two men in hospital after ‘revenge’ attacks organised on Facebook

Reports of sexual assault and robbery in NYE attacks now over 500

Vigilante mobs have been attacking Pakistani and Syrians in Cologne, leaving at least two in hospital, following calls on social media for ‘revenge’ in the wake of the New Years Eve assaults.

The attacks were carried out by groups of young men, allegedly specifically targeting foreigners, after reports Cologne police are focusing their investigation on asylum seekers and migrants.

More than 500 criminal complains have now been filed over the events outside Cologne’s famous cathedral on New Years Eve, where young women were sexually assaulted, raped and robbed.”

“The Left’s Embrace Of Islamic Rape”

Young middle-eastern men are invading Europe. How bad is it? Here is some footage taken by a trucker near the port of Calais. It shows a bit of the scale of the invasion and it shows that the young men are beginning to cause trouble. The police are letting them do it, too.

Language warning.

The invaders who have made it into European cities have begun killing and raping residents. There was a big gang-rape on New Years eve. The people have said they have enough and have chosen to demonstrate in the streets. Here is an image from Germany where officials have determined that the demonstrations against rape can not be tolerated. They ordered that they be broken up with water cannons.

Germany-water-cannons

Germany is firmly in the control of the left. They do not care about you or your women or children. They have an agenda. From Front Page Magazine:

“Why progressives are sacrificing their own women on the altar of utopian ideals.”

Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker’s response to the assaults under her watch has been to reprimand the victims, suggesting that they had asked for it. She has vowed to make sure that women will change their behavior, so that they don’t provoke Muslims to sexually assault them again. There will now be published “online guidelines” for women to read so they can prepare themselves.”

They are blaming the raped women. They are not punishing the rapists. They are encouraging them.

There have been many comments about the left. No matter what is said it is true that they do not care for the people. They care only for the acquisition of power – totalitarian power – so they can become demi-gods. They can decide who lives and how they live. They can decide who dies. Or, they can decide to ignore the rapes, the deaths, the human rights violations.

As we see today in Europe the leftists who are leading those countries are showing the entire world exactly who they are and what they value. They are evil incarnate. They are the enemy of civilization.

Valerie Jarrett: “Watch The State Of The Union January 12”

From: VALERIE JARRETT: “Unleashed & Unhinged”

Now on the eve of 2016 it is Jarrett who has sounded the call to the White House soldiers – those who have remained loyal to her, and thus by association, loyal to President Obama. If detractors of the Obama/Jarrett White House were frustrated before regarding the President’s willingness to govern via Executive Order, they apparently will be downright apoplectic in the coming months of the New Year. Ms. Jarrett is said to have already lined up personally-selected allies in the Mainstream Media and Congress to aid a “smooth transition” for the coming agenda.

“It will be Valerie Jarrett unleashed and unhinged upon all those things she has determined must still be changed about the United States of America. She has let it be known there will be no going quietly into that good night for this White House. And the more attention given to the 2016 presidential race, the more she’s determined to keep Barack Obama on the front page right along with the candidates.”

Monday, Monday. Can’t Trust That Day…

President Obama plans to meet with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Monday to finalize plans for executive actions on guns.

“Obama set to unveil curbs on gun sellers”

Executive actions expected next week will be part of the president’s new year push to make progress on long-stalled problems before the 2016 presidential election heats up.

President Barack Obama’s bid to assert himself in his final year will begin with long-awaited executive actions on gun control, expected to be released next week, shortly after he returns to Washington.

The White House is putting finishing touches on several measures in an effort to make progress on curbing gun violence, an issue the president and close aides have found frustratingly intractable, before the race to replace him enters prime time.”

Update: “The National Rifle Association, the country’s most influential gun-rights supporter, is challenging President Obama’s new plan to use his presidential power to tighten firearms laws, calling it a “political stunt” that fails to increase public safety.”

Crybaby Students Are Systematically Destroying Higher Education

This time it’s the black student union at Oberlin College. US News has a little information about Oberlin:

college-photo_100._445x280-zmm

247 W. Lorain Street, Suite C
Oberlin, OH 44074
Phone: (440) 775-8121
2015-2016 Tuition & Fees
$50,586
Students
2,961 enrolled
45% male / 55% female”

The Black Student Union there has sent the administration a fourteen page long list of demands. Perhaps I should write the word ‘Demands’ the way they do. Here: DEMANDS.

Our larger goals are to see:
1. An increase in Black and students of color represented in the institution from the Americas, including the Caribbean and Africa
2. An increase in Black administrators and faculty across departments and governing bodies
3. The divestment from all prisons and Israel
4. Exclusive Black safe spaces on campus
5. The active elimination of institutional complacency that allows violence against Black students to thrive and persist
6. The eradication of hegemony in the curriculum across the College and Conservatory
7. The end of Oberlin College functioning as a gentrifying institution
8. An end to the erasure of Black contributions on this campus

Many of these demands have been issued before and subsequently ignored by administration, faculty and students. This was never acceptable, and will no longer be tolerated. As you will see these are not polite requests, but concrete and unmalleable demands. Failure to meet them will result in a full and forceful response from the community you fail to support. Our demands are as follows:”

I won’t try to list all of their childish DEMANDS. After all, they take fourteen pages. I have included a link to the list for those who are curious. But a couple of things they include are a list of teachers the DEMAND be tenured IMMEDIATELY and a list of teachers they DEMAND be fired. They must have their undies in a twist.

Oh, and they DEMAND that their, “Black student leaders be provided a $8.20/hr stipend for their continuous organizing efforts around the well being of Black people on Oberlin’s campus, city and beyond”

They want the school to pay them to demonstrate.

This is a very long list of DEMANDS. If only a small portion of this list is adopted by Oberlin it will mean that the administrators have ceded control of the college to a mob. That will mean a swift and sure end to this institute of learning.

Do You Agree?

This writer is saying that there will be shooting and bloodshed when officials try to confiscate legally owned guns from Americans. He also says that the bloodshed should not be limited to only those sent to do the collecting but should be extended to those who sent them and to those who promoted confiscation. What is the difference between this and murder?

From ‘Say Uncle’:

Bring it
Amitai Etzioni a the Huffington post says we need domestic disarmament:

Given that even micro gun control measures will be effectively blocked by the NRA and its allies, and that promoting mini measures as potentially effective is misleading, progressives may as well go for the big enchilada: Call for domestic disarmament.

I don’t think progressives understand how that will play out. Those sitting on the sidelines cheering on the disarmament effort are as much fair game as those doing the disarming.”

A detail: The whole Democrat case for disarming the American people is built on a foundation of lies. One of those lies is that you or I can buy firearms over the internet without being subjected to a background check. It has been said so many times that some, like the Director of the FBI, accept it as truth. You and I know that guns bought over the internet must be shipped to licensed dealers who are required to get a form 4473 filled out and do a check with the feds to see if we are OK to buy. The director of the FBI doesn’t know this and it is enough to disqualify him for the job.

“Point Deer, Make Horse”

This is from an essay with that name written by John C. Wright. He is referring to the way some people construct elaborate ways to delude themselves.

point deer make horse

The Chinese have an epigram for this, as they have for most things political and practical.

It is written this way: 指鹿為馬 (zhi lu wei ma). Literally translated, the four characters mean ‘point deer, make horse’.

The word 為 for ‘make’ also means ‘to transform’ or ‘to serve as’ or ‘to make believe.’ So the epigram means ‘Calling a deer a horse.’”

What Wright is writing about is the left and how they have elaborate ways to insulate themselves from reality:

How long until the Left wake up? The answer is: NEVER.

The Left will never wake up to reality for precisely the reason that Leftism is a mental system of excuses and psychological tricks and traps meant to allow the Leftist to escape from reality.

That is what all their rigmarole, jabberwocky, lies and evasions, all their complex obfuscations, and penning endless tomes of endless nonsense from Marx to Keynes to Al Gore, all their riots, marches, protests, sit-ins, think-tanks, media moguls, money laundering, awards shows, convulsions, antics, stunts, clamor, libel, slander, and cacophony is for: Reality avoidance.

That is all that it is for.

It was not always thus. Perhaps a generation ago, there were Leftists who joined the Democrat Party for what were political reasons, to promote labor unions, impose regulation on banks and businesses in response to some threat, real or imaginary, posed by the free market, or to encourage the welfare state to help the poor.

Perhaps two generations ago, there were real Marxists who really believed that socialism was more efficient and more productive of human wealth than the free market. But after the Fall of the Berlin Wall, no honest person can maintain that socialism is more efficient at encouraging wealth and creating and distributing goods and services than a free market.

All socialism produces are mounds of corpses in mass graves, and gulag-states surrounded by barbed wire, with all guns pointed inward.”

There is a lot more at the link. If you decide to go read it don’t miss the comments section. Example:

Say a man watches a magician. Now, he could sit there and try to figure out how the trick works, but that would require effort to do so, the gathering of information the magician wants to hide (like the extra card stuck up his sleeve). Far easier is it to just assume what is immediately apparent and the magician has powers beyond those of ordinary man.

Now what is the term for a temptation to avoid effort? Perhaps one that was recognized as one of the 7 deadliest sins by the Church, but you hardly ever hear anything said about it? Sloth.

And now that we have forgotten it, it shows us how dangerous it is. Because not bothering with the effort to learn the truth? That’s what I say is driving the rise of self-deception (toss pride onto the sloth and you get the new atheists).”

Obama: “It’s ‘Insane’ That People On A No-Fly List Can Buy A Gun”

Barack Hussein Obama today, in ‘Your Weekly Address’ said it is ‘Insane that people on a no-fly list can buy a gun’.

With no due respect Mr. President, it is not your place nor is it within the authority of any President to determine who should be able to buy a gun. It is the purview of the individual states or the Congress. You would exceed your executive authority if you attempt to create laws such as this.

Further, Americans have seen how your administration operates. Your Tax people highlight those who have different views than yours to make their lives harder. Your IRS targeted Conservative groups and illegally suspended their tax-exempt status. Your tax people did the same with the manufacturers of Gibson Guitars because their owners donated to Republicans. Why should Americans believe that your Homeland Security people would not target legitimate gun owners by putting their names on a ‘No-Fly’ list?

You have lied to us before and you continue to do so. We do not trust you and for good reason.

“San Bernardino Shooter Passed DHS Counterterrorism Vetting”

They say the vetting process is ‘Rigorous’. According to Senators Cruz and Sessions it failed with the San Bernardino killers.

Democrats have been trying to assure Americans that the vetting process for the military age, male, Syrian ‘Refugees’ they want to bring to the United States will keep Americans safe. We all knew that is a lie. Now, thanks to Cruz and Sessions, we have proof.

Remember, anything a Democrat says is either a lie or is untrue.

dead bernardino suspect

Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) want President Obama to release the immigration records of the San Bernardino shooters, arguing they should play a key role in the coming debate over funding the Syrian refugee resettlement& program.

Their request comes as CBS reports that one of the shooting suspects passed the Department of Homeland Security’s “counterterrorism screening as part of her vetting” for a visa. Federal officials maintain that they have a rigorous and effective screening process in place for people from countries such as Syria that have significant jihadist movements, making the immigration records of the San Bernardino shooters a potentially significant piece of the debate over refugee policy.”

Another Warning: Go Armed

This is coming to a neighborhood near you. Actually, it already exists in many cities across the nation.

It is plain that what has been happening in Europe is continuing here. Also, our leaders, like theirs, are putting the priorities on the immigrants – at the expense of the country’s citizens.

This article is a cry for Sweden’s leaders to remember who they have sworn to serve. It is falling on deaf ears.

“Sweden: ‘No Apartments, No Jobs, No Shopping Without a Gun'”

Carola Herlin, Director of the Moro Backe Health Center, was murdered on August 10, along with her son, in the IKEA store in Västerås, Sweden.

Carola Herlin, Director of the Moro Backe Health Center, was murdered on August 10, along with her son, in the IKEA store in Västerås, Sweden.

The Swedes see the welfare systems failing them. Swedes have had to get used to the government prioritizing refugees and migrants above native Swedes.

“There are no apartments, no jobs, we don’t dare go shopping anymore [without a gun], but we’re supposed to think everything’s great. … Women and girls are raped by these non-European men, who come here claiming they are unaccompanied children, even though they are grown men. … You Cabinet Ministers live in your fancy residential neighborhoods, with only Swedish neighbors. It should be obligatory for all politicians to live for at least three months in an area consisting mostly of immigrants… [and] have to use public transport.” — Laila, to the Prime Minister.

“Instead of torchlight processions against racism, we need a Prime Minister who speaks out against the violence… Unite everyone. … Do not make it a racism thing.” — Anders, to the Prime Minister.

“In all honesty, I don’t even feel they [government ministers] see the problems… There is no one in those meetings who can tell them what real life looks like.” – Laila, on the response she received from the government.”

Obama Threatens Leaders In All 50 States

“Obama administration tells states they can’t refuse Syrian refugees”

obamarxist (1)

The Obama administration warned states over the Syrian refugee crisis Wednesday, telling them in a letter they do not have legal authority to refuse the refugees, and states that do not comply may be subject to enforcement action.

The letter, from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), told state resettlement officials that they may not deny benefits and services to refugees based on their country of origin or religion.

“Accordingly, states may not categorically deny ORR-funded benefits and services to Syrian refugees,” the letter, dated Wednesday, says. “Any state with such a policy would not be in compliance with the State Plan requirements, applicable statutes, and their own assurances, and could be subject to enforcement action, including suspension and termination.”

“This Top Democrat Vows to Push New Gun Controls in 2016”

Senator-Chuck-Schumer-Sleeps-With-Life-Sized-Barack-Obama-Cardboard-Cutout

Chuck Schumer, who sleeps next to a life-sized cutout of Barack Obama, has brilliantly decided that now is the time, with Republicans in control of both houses of Congress, to introduce new gun control legislation.

Schumer_Wegmann-1250x650

One of the Senate’s top Democrats has promised to renew a push to pass sweeping gun control legislation in 2016.

At an event sponsored by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced that Senate Democrats will “bring a universal background check bill to the floor of the Senate early next year.”

Schumer’s pledge Friday comes as Senate Democrats take aim at illegal gun sales and background check loopholes. Schumer and his colleagues launched the new effort for comprehensive gun control after the mass murder at an Oregon community college earlier this year.”

“How Obama is bankrolling a non-stop protest against invented outrage”

I don’t know about bankrolling but the rest of the article is spot-on. Obama was raised by communists and schooled in Islam. His focus is not on improving the lives of anyone. Instead it is on generating discontent that eventually leads to violence. Once you understand those little facts it’s easy to see what he is doing and why.

The ‘Bully Pulpit’ that he enjoys, originally named that by Teddy Roosevelt, allows him to create feelings of entitlement, frustration, and anger with just a few words. He has surrounded himself with like-minded individuals who are well-trained. He has given them their orders and they are faithfully following them. As a result Americans are living in fear for their lives and their properties.

This is from the New York Post.

obama non-stop protest

Barack Obama’s presidency has been pockmarked by rioting, looting and protests. That’s no coincidence. It’s what the former community organizer sought from Day One. And it’s just going to get worse before he leaves office.

The senseless protests we’re seeing break out on the campuses of the University of Missouri, Yale and other colleges, as well as on bridges and highway overpasses and outside police stations, are precisely the kind of thing Obama was trained to organize while attending leftist agitation schools founded by Chicago communist Saul Alinsky. He learned to a fare-thee-well how to “rub raw the sores of discontent.”

mao-chinese-revolution

Who but communists would use the international communist salute? What reason would you, for instance, have for holding a clenched fist overhead? It means just one thing. It means you are a communist revolutionary.

Still, the old adage remains. ‘If you are not a leftist at twenty you have no heart. If you are not a Conservative by the time you are forty you have no brain’. Eventually some of those holding their fists high will grow up and become realists. Some, though, will never get over their indoctrination.

We can name many adults who have never forsaken their communist roots. Names like Bill Ayers and Barack Obama come to mind. As they grow older they become more angry and more dangerous.

Bill Nye Wants An End To You And Your Climate Denial

Bill Nye, 'The Science Guy'

Bill Nye, ‘The Science Guy’

He is stuck solidly on ‘Utopia’. People who say they want to change the world will do so at the cost of human lives; many of them. We have seen it before. The causes he espouses – and the methods – have been tried before and they cost more than a hundred million people to die.

So why did you write this book? Why now? And what’s your central message?

My goal is to change the world! Really, that’s what I’m trying to do. Obviously, this book isn’t going to change the world, but it is part of the bigger idea that we all have to think optimistically about this. We’ve got to go into this knowing we have a hard challenge but that we’re going to win this fight, and we’re going to save the earth for humanity.”

So, what is his ‘Ultimate Solution’? He wants to ‘Eliminate’ climate deniers.

Part of the solution to this problem or this set of problems associated with climate change is getting the deniers out of our discourse. You know, we can’t have these people – they’re absolutely toxic. And so part of the message in this book is to get the deniers out of the picture, and along that line – I’ve been saying this a lot the last few weeks as I listen to the Republican debates – maybe one of these people will go out on his or her own, thinking for him or herself, and say, “You know, I’ve been thinking about this and climate change is a very serious problem. So if I’m president, we’re going to address climate change.”

He must be emboldened by the Bernie Sanders/Hillary Clinton talk about socialism.

“We’re Not Doing Enough To Help The Poor.”

Below is a graphic that shows all the federal programs that exist to help the poor. It was produced by the staff of House Ways and Means Human Resources Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany (R-LA). It is from the record of the committee. The chairman says they need to be better organized.

That is not the way to handle them.

Click to enlarge.

boustany board

We spend roughly $750 billion at the federal level on these programs, and hundreds of billions more at the state level. All told, taxpayers provide $1 trillion per year in help for low-income Americans, yet today there are 9.4 million more Americans living below the poverty line than there were in 2007, before the last recession. In sum, we are spending more and getting worse results when it comes to promoting the work and earnings that keep families out of poverty.”

We have lost the War on Poverty. Throwing tons of money at it does not work.

Jesse Jackson: “The gun lobby can be defeated”

He may be right. The gun lobby may be defeated but gun owners may be another story.

Notice how he segue’s from a discussion of illegal guns to an effort to include legal gun owners as the problem.

One thing we can count on with Jackson; he will fill his screeds with lies and he will try to use the acts of lawbreakers to smear the law-abiding. This essay is no exception.

jessejacksonsr1

Too many illegal guns are in circulation, from handguns to military assault rifles. These guns are powerful enough not only to shoot up churches and schools but to bring down airplanes. Too many legal guns are in the wrong hands. Too many young men use guns rather than reason to settle disputes, bullets rather than accomplishment to establish their manhood.

[…]

The Black Lives Matter Movement has raised awareness of the violence in our cities, focusing on the horror of African-Americans threatened by the very police who are charged with protecting them. But the spike of murders and shootings comes not from the actions of the police but from the actions of residents.

Citizens in many cities want a crackdown on the trafficking and carrying of guns. But many cities find themselves preempted by state legislatures. The gun lobby has systematically pushed to get state legislatures to block municipal reforms. That has to be exposed and challenged.”

Today the Founding Fathers would be considered to be domestic terrorists.

“Obama’s Department of Justice is saying they’re not worried about the beheading terrorist demons of ISIS, and they’re gonna focus on, well, probably you and me.”

From CNN:

Domestic terror groups pose a greater threat to America than ISIS or al Qaeda, a Justice Department official said Wednesday.

To help combat them, the department has created a new counsel that will coordinate the investigation and prosecution of anti-government and hate groups.

Assistant Attorney General John Carlin, who oversees national security at the Justice Department, announced the new position — the Domestic Terrorism Counsel — following a number of violent attacks or plots against the U.S. that he said were motivated by “anti-government views, racism, bigotry and anarchy, and other despicable beliefs.”
