A group of about 50 students and some community members gathered at Sather Gate on Tuesday, (April 14th,) protesting police brutality and what they called a hostile campus atmosphere for the underrepresented minority population.

Initially led by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, the protest was organized as part of a series of coordinated responses nationwide to police brutality.

More than 50 individuals blocked pedestrian traffic through the passageway under Sather Gate.

On a few occasions, passers-by’s attempts to break through the blockade were met with violent responses. UCPD spokesperson Lt. Marc DeCoulode said there were three reports of assault during the protest, while no arrests were made.”

Here are the culprits:

Chisholm-Kulka

A Wisconsin District Attorney is being accused of conducting partisan political raids on the homes of conservative advocates. Democrat DA John Chisholm orchestrated “John Doe” raids on the homes of multiple families who had donated to conservative groups.”

And:

At Chisholm’s request, Wisconsin Circuit Judge Barbara Kluka granted prosecutors outrageously sweeping subpoena powers that led them to conduct dozens of raids on conservative organizations in Wisconsin.”

“VA Sends Veterans’ Medical Info To FBI To Get Their Guns Taken Away”

Obama delivers remarks after a meeting with McDonald and others at the Phoenix VA Medical Center in Phoenix

The Daily Caller obtained a “MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS AND THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION REGARDING THE NATIONAL INSTANT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM.”

The document, dated Feb. 27, 2012, makes clear the VA must send health information to the FBI for its gun background-check database.”

Hillaryous: She Has Begun The Communist Sloganeering

National Review is quoting this from the New York Times.

“Hillary: We Must Topple the 1 Percent.”

hillary toasting

In a meeting with economists this year, Mrs. Clinton intensely studied a chart that showed income inequality in the United States. The graph charted how real wages, adjusted for inflation, had increased exponentially for the wealthiest Americans, making the bar so steep it hardly fit on the chart.

Mrs. Clinton pointed at the top category and said the economy required a “toppling” of the wealthiest 1 percent, according to several people who were briefed on Mrs. Clinton’s policy discussions but could not discuss private conversations for attribution.”

Another Brilliant Argument From A Far-Left Progressive

Wish I could think fast on my feet the way O’Malley does. He is so clever. But, like Hillary, he doesn’t have a solution. Just curse words.

“O’Malley: GOP’s take on the economy is ‘bulls—‘”

omalleymartin_012914getty_0_0

Possible presidential contender Martin O’Malley (D) on Monday mocked Republican arguments that federal regulations keep poor and middle-class people from moving up the economic ladder.

“It is not true that regulation holds poor people down, or regulation keeps middle class from advancing,” O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland, said Monday in an interview with NPR’s Steve Inskeep. “That’s kind of patently bulls—.”

“That’s quite a last word, by the way, on that subject. … I’m just going to leave it right there,” Inskeep responded.”

Bone Stupid

Somehow the out of touch Hillary Clinton has become aware of the trouble small businesses are having in the United States. She says she was ‘Surprised’.

Interestingly enough she does not have a proposal to turn this slide around. But she is a far-left Progressive. You can be assured that whatever she comes up with will make things worse. It is because of the policies of far-left Progressives that this problem exists.

In case anyone is interested, those policies include taxation, regulation of business practices and employees, and micro-management of the businesses from the state and national capitols.

In a statement, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus mocked Clinton for expressing such surprise, pointing to reports of the cost increases Obamacare has imposed on small businesses.

”At every turn, Hillary Clinton has supported top-down Washington-driven policies that have stacked the deck against small businesses,” Priebus said. “Hillary Clinton can’t possibly be a champion for everyday Americans when she doesn’t understand their most basic economic concerns and was ‘surprised’ to learn that small businesses are struggling.”

CNN Opposes Capitalists

cnn cuba

This tweet is actually an ad for an article at CNN.com titled, “Why you should travel to Cuba before it looks like everywhere else”.

Cuba is not like other places, or rather, not like anywhere that exists today.

To some outsiders, it looks firmly stuck in the 1950s. Vintage cars roam the streets, the landscape is absent of strip malls and global chains, and the buildings — though crumbling — hark back to a grander time.

It is these throwbacks that lend Havana, the country’s capital, an undeniable charm. A charm that, some worry, is in peril once the U.S. embargo lifts.

“We’re still in 1959, that’s the beauty of the city, and eventually all of this is going to change,” says Hugo Cancio, a Cuban-American entrepreneur and president of Fuego Media Group.

“Real estate developers from the U.S. have been flying to Cuba very quietly, taking notes, taking photos and putting together their Cuba investment plans. I don’t blame them. There are a lot of opportunities here,” he says.”

Somehow CNN believes that is a bad thing.

Comparing The USA Of Today With The Balkans

Kurt Schlichter has written a piece for Townhall.com titled ‘Liberals May Regret Their New Rules’ in which he compares the way the United States under the left has been ignoring the rule of law and more and more accepting lies and liars. He correctly notes that, like the Balkans, when the law is ignored, violent force becomes the only result. He mistakenly refers to leftists as ‘Liberals’ but that is quite common.

And he warns those on the left that they are in the minority and they have no experience with violence.

The writer, Kurt Schlichter, in Kosovo

The writer, Kurt Schlichter, in Kosovo

Today in America, a despised minority that is really no minority is the target of an establishment that considers this minority unworthy of respect, unworthy of rights, and unworthy of having a say in the direction of this country. It’s an establishment that has one law for itself, and another for its enemies. It’s an establishment that inflicts an ever-increasing series of petty humiliations on its opponents and considers this all hilarious.

That’s a recipe for disaster. You cannot expect to change the status quo for yourself and then expect those you victimize not to play by the new rules you have created. You cannot expect to be able to discard the rule of law in favor of the rule of force and have those you target not respond in kind.”

Yes, of course, when you make new rules for yourself they remain in effect when your opponents take control… and that has happened. Then there is a dire warning that Progressives should heed:

In contrast, there are an awful lot of people willing to fight and die for their religion and our Constitution.

And let’s be blunt – these are the people with most of the guns and the training to use them. That’s the reality of the rule of force. I’ve seen it – it’s there behind me in that photo.

Now, this will no doubt draw the lie that I am somehow advocating violence. The current liberal habit of shamelessly lying about their opponents makes civil debate impossible. Similarly, the mockery of non-liberals before stacked audiences of trained seals a la Jon Stewart is part and parcel of the same strategy of delegitimizing any opposition. Closing down the option of discussion leaves their opponents with only the option of action. So far, the action has only been in funding campaigns for oppressed pizzerias and in the voting booth – though they’ve trying to nullify that too.

I’m not advocating violence – I am warning liberals that they are setting the conditions for violence.

And that better worry them, for the coastal elites are uniquely unsuited to a world where force rules instead of law. The Serbs were, at least, a warrior people. The soft boys and girls who brought us helicopter parenting, “trigger warnings” and coffee cups with diversity slogans are not.”

Schlichter’s warnings are real.

“United Nations Climate Commissar: “We Should Do Everything Possible” to Reduce Human Population”

We have met Christina Figueres here before. In that post we noted that Figueres admitted that she and others in the United Nations are intentionally transforming the world economy. Now, like so many other far-left planners she is calling for a reduction in human population.

Christina Figueres

Christina Figueres

If you watch the five-minute video below you will hear her say so. In it she also says it can be up to the women of the world – especially those in ‘Developing Countries’. She proposes several pie-in-the-sky ideas like somehow giving those women energy efficient stoves to cook on instead of wood fires. It really is an insight into the leftist mind and the ways in which they want to control people’s lives and do so with your money.

United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said humanity “really should make every effort” to reduce global population trends to protect the environment and fight global warming in an interview with Climate One. …

“We can definitely change [population] numbers and really should make every effort to change those numbers because we are already, today, already exceeding the planet’s planetary carrying capacity, today,” Figueres [barked]. “To say nothing of adding more population that is really going to overextend our capacity. So yes we should do everything possible.”

WaPo: “Bernie Sanders, weighing presidential run, calls for ‘political revolution’”

Sanders, the Socialist Senator from Vermont, is calling for revolution. Is that the only word Socialists know? In the last hundred years leftist revolutions have killed more than a hundred million people. A few of them were political people but the vast majority were regular non-political citizens. Some were shot, some were gassed, and many were simply starved to death.

holdomor dead

The writer in this Washington Post story sounds sympathetic to Sanders’ insanity. Many on the left are – and will be – right up to the time when they are put against the wall.

When these revolutions happen it is an evil thing. Those in power fear everyone who is not in power. Their solution is always the same. They eliminate everyone who they suspect – of anything.

But the real, sad, victims are the ones who are considered ‘Expendable’. They mean nothing to the new leaders and are just inconvenient.

This is what people like Bernie Sanders want.

I’m here because we need a political revolution in this country,” Sanders said in an interview with The Washington Post before a campaign rally for local candidates.

Sanders, who has been crisscrossing the country raising money and speaking to supporters, appeared at an event for mayoral candidate Jesus “Chuy” Garcia and Susan Sadlowski Garza, a candidate for alderman.”

“Hillary Clinton Wants to Send Citizens to Camps—Fun Camps!”

Fun camps. That’s just what the government needs to do; build camps for old people. That’ll work fine.

So Clinton hands over to us all to consider the idea of a progressive sending adults to camps, and the idea of a politician infamous for being humorless and suspicious being an arbiter of “fun,” wrapped in a great big bow.”

This is from Reason.com where they note also that, ” …On an entirely unrelated note, “joycamp” was the Newspeak term for forced labor camps in George Orwell’s 1984.”

Obama Administration Says They Are Immune From FOIA Law

FOIA, the Freedom of Information Act, was put in place to ensure that the American people can know what their government is doing. From the linked website:

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that gives you the right to access information from the federal government. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government.”

According to Wikipedia, the law has been amended before by Executive order. Once in 1982, once on 2001, and once in 2009. Those changes were to protect certain documents from being released. This, however, is something else. It says that the Administration is not subject to FOIA at any level.

This is from the White House that claims, falsely, they are the most transparent in history.

What are they hiding?

White House office to delete its FOIA regulations

WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office.

The White House said the cleanup of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.”

Jen Psaki: “I Can’t Spin This One”

This is not just about Hillary Clinton destroying her records. It’s the entire Obama administration. We know it’s common in the State Department. It’s not clear yet if Clinton started the file destruction but we know she did it.

She is unfit to be President.

US-POLITICS-PSAKI

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said it would be incorrect to call the emails destroyed since some might be retrievable through technology. But she acknowledged that regular archiving of the work email in-boxes of senior officials besides the secretary did not begin until “February of this year.”

“I wouldn’t state it’s ‘lost to history’ because there are technical means of gaining access to past information,” Psaki said.”

It looks as though her problem of not keeping records of emails – or of deleting the ones that look bad – has been rampant throughout the Department of State.

Later in the briefing, however, Psaki suggested that there was confusion among some State Department employees about what was and was not being automatically saved.

“I assume some assumed that was happening at the time as well,” Psaki said. “We’re updating it because it’s an imperfect system.”

Speaking without reference to Clinton, Psaki said the duty was on individual employees to save records that met standards for permanent archiving. “Clearly, individuals — any top officials — would also be expected to preserve their documents,” she said.”

Eric Holder Used Secret Email , Too

Secrecy is necessary when you are building a tyranny.

Attorney General Eric Holder used secretive email accounts under aliases during his tenure at the Justice Department, raising fresh questions about the Obama administration’s compliance with federal records laws as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reels from her own email scandal.

Holder has emailed under the nom de plume “Henry Yearwood” in the past, former Justice Department officials say. The Huffington Post reported Tuesday that Holder had used three aliases. The current is unknown.”

“Quiet Change Expands ATF Power to Seize Property”

seized guns

This is an act that allows the ATF to take your guns, ammunition, house, car, anything. All they have to do is ‘Suspect’ that you are dealing drugs. It goes around the need to convince a judge so they can get a warrant.

There are a couple things about this. First, why the ATF? Their proper title is the ‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’. Nowhere in their title or their charter are drugs mentioned.

Second, the hurdles they must jump to seize your property are so low as to be non-existent. They just have to say they ‘Suspect’ you of having drugs.

The revolutionaries are continuing to push. They want an armed confrontation that they can quell. They will get it, too, with moves like this.

This is from the CATO Institute.

A quick glance at the Federal Register (Vol. 80, No. 37, p. 9987-88) today reveals that Attorney General Eric Holder, who earned cautious praise last month for a small reform to the federal equitable sharing program, has now delegated authority to the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to seize and “administratively forfeit” property involved in suspected drug offenses. Holder temporarily delegated this authority to the ATF on a trial basis in 2013, and today made the delegation permanent while lauding the ATF for seizing more than $19.3 million from Americans during the trial period.”

U.S. preparing to sue Ferguson police over charges of racial bias

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to sue the Ferguson, Missouri, police department over allegations of racially discriminatory practices unless the police force agrees to make changes, CNN reported on Wednesday.

The network, citing sources, said the Justice Department would not charge the white Ferguson police officer involved in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown last August but was expected to outline allegations of discriminatory Ferguson police tactics.

The department would file suit if Ferguson police did not agree to review and change those tactics, CNN reported.”

Peters: “Marie Harf Is Exhibit A for the Comprehensive Failure of the US Educational System”

Peters is right about this but what he says is incomplete. Harf does not come up with this idiocy on her own. What comes out of her mouth is scripted by the Department of State officials and they get their orders from the White House.

Harf is a sacrificial lamb. She is being destroyed by her superiors and she either doesn’t know it or she doesn’t care – it’s all or nothing for the revolution.

The fact that she came before a national television audience and spouted her inanities does not mean she made them up. It means she was sent out to say them. The only reason she would be sent out to look like a fool is to make the media, especially the media on the right, pay attention to her and distract from something else.

ATF Intends To Ban ‘Armor Piercing’ Ammunition

5.56 green tip

From the ATF proposal:

To protect the lives and safety of law enforcement officers from the threat posed by
ammunition capable of penetrating a protective vest when fired from a handgun, the Gun Control
Act of 1968 (GCA), as amended, prohibits the import, manufacture, and distribution of “armor
piercing ammunition” as defined by the statute. The GCA, however, allows for the exemption of
ammunition that would otherwise be considered armor piercing if the Attorney General
determines that the specific ammunition at issue is “primarily intended to be used for sporting
purposes.”

If you think it doesn’t affect 5.56 ammo because it’s fired in a rifle, remember these AR15 pistols:

WTF?: “TSA Demands Internal Passport for Domestic Travel”

“Your Papers, citizen.”

Precedents exist for requiring citizens to produce special ID for domestic travel; they include Nazi Germany, apartheid South Africa and Russia (both Imperial and Soviet).

Over the Christmas season, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) quietly announced that America was walking down that path. By 2016, all domestic air travel will require either a traditional passport or a federally-compliant ID card called “Real ID.” State driver’s licenses will no longer allow Americans access to domestic flights, as they do now. Real ID will constitute an internal passport.”

What Does It Mean When The Left Actually Reveals Its Plan?

It means they are confident enough in their success that they no longer have to disguise it.

Unlike leftists in the past, these people are thinking bigger. Until now they have worked to enslave the people of individual countries. Sometimes they have accomplished their goals. To do so, as we know, dissidents and others had to be eliminated in wholesale slaughter fields. Hundreds of millions have been killed by leaders who allowed no one to disagree with them.

The people in charge of the United Nations have dreams of doing these same things on a worldwide scale. If they succeed it will not be hundreds of millions of people whose bodies will have to be disposed of. It will be billions.

“U.N. Climate Chief: We’re ‘Intentionally’ Transforming The World Economy”

They’re no longer hiding their plan to destroy the world economy and rebuild it according to their plan. And, as we here at the Revo have known all along, climate change regulation is not about climate at all. It’s about control and destruction. Read what the UN’s top climate official, Christiana Figueres, has revealed.

Christiana Figueres

Christiana Figueres

This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history,” UNFCCC Executive Secretary Figueres stated at a press conference in Brussels Tuesday.

The “intentional” reordering of the global economy, she told reporters, “will not happen overnight” due to the “depth of the transformation”:

This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution. That will not happen overnight and it will not happen at a single conference on climate change, be it COP 15, 21, 40 – you choose the number. It just does not occur like that. It is a process, because of the depth of the transformation.”

Obama To CBC: “Skip That Jew’s Speech”

The anti-semitism in the Oval Office is strong but not surprising. This President sides with Islamists every time. Of course they hate Jews so he must. He makes excuses for the killing of innocents by Muslims, tries to equate the slaughters performed by Muslims to the defensive actions of Christians and Jews, and he is dividing the people in the country he has sworn to protect.

Insider says Obama administration ‘sent a message’ to black Democratic lawmakers that they should skip Netanyahu speech to Congress

‘BACK CHANNELS': The Obama administration is nudging black Democrats on Capitol Hill away from attending a March 3 address by ISraeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, a White House aide says

Two prominent black Democrats in the House of Representatives are vowing to skip Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress next month, a move that a White House insider says was put in motion by the Obama administration.

John Lewis of Georgia and G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina both said Friday that they disapproved when House Speaker John Boehner invited the Israeli leader to address a joint session of Congress on March 3 without consulting President Barack Obama first.

That disapproval apparently was orchestrated, or at least strongly encouraged, by the White House through comamunications with lawmakers connected to the Congressional Black Caucus.

‘I’m not saying the president called anyone personally,’ a current White House staffer told Daily Mail Online.

‘But yeah, the White House sent a message to some at the CBC that they should suddenly be very upset about the speech.'”
