“Highly Unusual” North Korean Submarine Activity

Soon they will be able to regularly launch missiles from Submarines.

I wonder if we are going to do more talking about how North Korea’s actions are unacceptable as we apparently accept them. Maybe the Air Force should calm our fears by telling us how even though they can nuke us, they can’t do it accurately.

Yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket.

Tumultuous Tuesday Covfefe Report

Good morning Real Revo. It’s a new day in Covfefe World. I must say that I am a little shocked that the mainstream media has let go of the Trump Military Transgender Ban. It seems like that furor should be raging right now but isn’t. Oh well, as you can see that have moved on to something new.

From ABC…

CBS…

CNN…

MSNBC…

That’s all there is at this point of our morning. A strange day indeed. Aren’t they all here lately?

Saying Goodbye…

This is my last post. It’s my 500th, so it’s a good round number to stop. I’m sure I will comment here and there but I will respect the wishes of this site.

Dear Real Revo,

Many people have touched the edges of our lives… coming and going, scarcely leaving an impression. But you are uncommon. You have made a difference in our lives. So it’s not surprising that we find ourselves thinking of how special you have been. For that we are truly grateful….and that has made all the difference.

Sincerely,
Bman

Coming soon to THE Real Revo

Seriously, everybody is all upset over what RD published on Saturday. I get it. The thing is, RD is my Brother and my Brother knows that I have a Pro Wrestling Show that I am helping produce, and it all goes down September 30th. There will be a period of time for editing. Then it gets uploaded and presented here. RD isn’t going to just shut this place down and miss out on that. Everybody here knows how much he loves Pro Wrestling.

Here are two Superstars who are appearing in our show.

Gene Simmons’s Love Child with George Zimmerman’s Mother…

Big Booty Roni and she ain’t playin’…

There are still many wondrous things to be seen here. I hope you all will be looking forward to seeing my first Pro Wrestling Show. I hope to have it here before Halloween. See? Much happiness yet to come here at THE Real Revo.

Let’s quit with the Sadness and Foreboding

There is no need for anybody to be sad. I don’t say that as if I have not read every single comment that has been made here since RD published that which has come across so devastatingly bad. I need to speak some Peace in the midst of this storm.

Let’s talk about some physical facts. True Love never dies. I truly love the readers here who have made THE Real Revo a part of their lives. You all bear witness to where it is that I have come from over these nearly Ten Years that have gone by since this all began to where it is that I am now. I came here as a “Mad Man”, hence the catchy name that I publish under. I come to you now as a child of our Creator who has accepted that he has fallen short of God’s requirements, asked forgiveness for his disobedience and has repented of all those things that made Mad Brad the guy you once loved for his utter insanity as expressed in the written word.

Then…

They found him seated upright at the Master’s feet, clothed and in his right mind and they were afraid.

Do you not know that we have all come together here as a family as part of a grand design that is much bigger than our ability to contemplate? RD has spoken Truth, which is what he does and has always sought to do. There is another Truth that becomes more self-evident by the day. The ties that bind us as a family are indeed very strong. Let me let you know right now that those ties are unbroken because they have been made of things that are unbreakable.

So let’s stop all this “Funeral Talk”, although I have to say that I am so very happy that those of you who have taken the time to express yourselves over these past couple of days have done so. It has meant more to us than you can imagine. It has humbled us a great deal. I’ve spent nearly 20% of my life associated with this magical spot on the net and many times I have thought that it has been an incredible investment into something that will go away and never be heard of again. The readers here have informed me otherwise over the past couple of days.

Know this; We do love you, our family here at THE Real Revo. True Love never dies. The Love we have shared here as a family will continue because it can never die. These are days that are worthy of celebration, NOT sadness and foreboding. This thing isn’t over.

You would think that by now I would be sick and tired of spending my Thursday Nights in search of a bad movie that I can give a good write-up for. No, that’s not the case. It’s my thing now. I will be happy to pass from this life being remembered as the guy who brought at least one silly movie here every Friday Night, except on those Friday Nights that we didn’t feel like being silly.

So even though we all sincerely appreciate the sentiments being expressed here of late, this party ain’t over yet. Liven up yourselves. Let the good times roll…

Staying in touch.

I am worn down on politics. That won’t last forever, but during my hiatus, the Revo as we know it, is ending. That makes me terribly sad.

I don’t say that in a flippant manner. I am genuinely sad to see the logical touchstone of my adult life come to an end. The thought makes my heart hurt.

I realize that I may have lost many fans during the election cycle, and that sucks, but I’d like to extend an olive branch.

If any of you would like to maintain contact or get to know me better on social media, feel free to friend me on Facebook. So long as RD is okay with me keeping the name, I plan to keep the Revo FB page running, as well.

I’ll turn it from a place to share our website work into a normal FB page that shares stuff and gets people arguing.

If you connect with me, just be sure to let me know your Revo user name, so I know who you are on here. If you’re one of the folks in the shadows who has been reading and not commenting, let me know that, too.

You can send a friend request if you want to CONNECT WITH ME HERE.

Could He Do That?

Members of Congress have the best health care in the world. They made sure they would. The rest of us don’t matter to them as long as they have theirs.

“Trump threatens to axe Congress members’ sweetheart health care deal and threatens insurance companies with pain following Obamacare repeal disaster”

It doesn’t sound like he has given up on repeal of Obamacare. The Senate members have, though. Here he is Donald Trump trying an end run around them. He wants to remove their wonderful health care coverage and make them live with what they want us to live with. Horrors!

Many of us have said for a long time that the Congress should be living with whatever they decide for us. That still sounds right.

But can he do that? I know the rules regarding the powers of the President were rewritten during the Obama years but does he have the authority to do this?

President Trump hinted on Monday that he’s prepared to end federal government subsidy payments to medical insurers this week, hastening the implosion of the Obamacare system and forcing congressional action.

And he suggested that members of Congress and their staffs should no longer have a sweetheart deal that gives them taxpayer dollars to offset the cost of enrolling in insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
‘If ObamaCare is hurting people, & it is, why shouldn’t it hurt the insurance companies & why should Congress not be paying what public pays?’ the president tweeted.”

What Could Be Worse Than A Trump Presidency?

Kurt Schlichter attempts to answer that question over at Townhall. He uses the tactic of telling us the future news from a year from now. This is part one. We will have to see how many more there will be.

“The Military Coup Against Donald Trump of 2018, Part 1”

We cannot tolerate this any longer,” said the former CIA Director at the head of the table. “We have to forcibly retake the government from Donald Trump. It is the only way save our democracy.”

His audience nodded solemnly. The men and women gathered at that secret February meeting on the top floor of 241 West 41st Street, the New York Times building, were Democrat politicians, media figures, retired and active members of the federal security bureaucracy, and several Establishment Republicans, and they were at wit’s end. There simply was no other choice. Donald Trump must be replaced, and it no longer mattered how. This meeting was the genesis of the bloody coup of April 2018.

[…]

But how would one pull off a coup d’etat in the United States? Most of the political hacks had no idea, while the military experts understood the massive challenge. Some answers were obvious – in the Third World, the first thing the plotters take control of are the radio and TV stations and the newspapers. In America, the media was already in the bag. Hell, they would cheerlead a coup. But the actual seizure of power? That was more complicated.

“You just send in some soldiers and take over everything,” said the younger and, astonishingly, stupider California senator. “You know, with guns. How hard can this Army stuff be?”

Retired – actually, fired by Trump – General Leonard Smith, who had been promoted by Obama after failing to win in Iraq and Afghanistan, but who successfully spearheaded the transsexuals in foxholes initiative, tried to explain.”

Well, The Russian Collusion Story Hasn’t Gotten Trump Out Of Office…

… Now Newsweek has another plan. And it sounds like they are grasping at straws.

Alternative science for alternative ‘Facts’.

“THE SOLAR ECLIPSE COULD MEAN DISASTER FOR TRUMP, ACCORDING TO ASTROLOGERS”

Donald Trump’s presidency was written in the stars—at least that’s what astrologers are saying. He was born during a lunar eclipse, they point out, which makes him more susceptible to the power of eclipses. And if eclipses are monumental celestial events with real-world consequences, as astrologers believe, then the rare total solar eclipse happening in August could have major implications for Trump, especially given the growing drama around his administration.

“There’s been a lot of conversation about this eclipse in terms of what’s going on with Donald Trump,” says Wade Caves, an astrological consultant who earlier in July published a 29-page analysis of the coming eclipse. “The astrological world has been completely buzzing with this for quite some time, even more so since Donald Trump was inaugurated.”

Manic Monday Covfefe Report

Good morning Real Revo. Something really crazy has happened this morning. I scanned the news headlines this morning in search of Covfefe and I did not see the word “Transgendered” not even once. Not once. It seems a little strange given how last week ended. It’s like the Tranny Ban is old news and we have moved on to what’s next. We can only hope.

Here we go, starting with ABC…

See BS…

CNN…

NBC…

MSNBC…

There you have it. It’s an incredibly light morning in the world of Covfefe. Strange.

Have a happy Monday and a prosperous week!

What’s Wrong With Debbie Wasserman Schultz?

She is the focal point behind the Pakistani IT man who was arrested while trying to leave the country. His name is Imran Awan.

She has always been unkempt looking. The hair style she wears is quite unflattering, but recently she has apparently given up completely on how she looks.

First thought was that she has been drinking heavily. Maybe drugs. Maybe both. But now the news is that she was paying Awan even after he no longer worked for her or the DNC. But now there is new news.

“Wasserman Schultz Seemingly Planned To Pay Suspect Even While He Lived In Pakistan”

WTF?

In all, six months of actions reveal a decision to continue paying a man who seemingly could not have been providing services to her, and who a mountain of evidence suggests was a liability. The man long had access to all of Wasserman Schultz’s computer files, work emails and personal emails, and he was recently accused by a relative in court documents of wiretapping and extortion.”

Extortion? Most people mistakenly call that blackmail. But, if she was paying Awan to stay silent about the things he got off her computers and those of the DNC, that is extortion.

A few people have floated the notion that she and Awan were having an affair. I find that to be hard to believe. The fact that she allowed him full access to Her own and Democrat computers, though, coupled with the way she resigned from her position as head of the DNC because of a few emails being released, makes the prospect of extortion even more likely. Especially since he was accused By Family Members of extortion.

The Washington Times has a good history of Awan, his brothers, and their connections with the Democrat National Committee.

Between the time Awan started working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005 and his family members were let go, earlier this year, they had collectively earned more than $4 million in tax paid salaries. In February, House members were alerted to potential for abuse and let go Awan’s family members.

Until just recently, Wasserman Schultz refused to fire Awan, however, and even went so far in her defense of him that she recently refused Capitol Police’s request to search a laptop belonging to him.”

She may be drinking or something. It must be terribly stressful being the victim of a Muslim extortionist.

A Sunday Sermon

Good morning Real Revo. It’s a stormy Sunday morning here in Florida. The Emergency Broadcast System has been sending out flash flooding alerts for the past couple of hours. It looks like there are some things that I wanted to get done today that just weren’t going to happen.

Two things that are going to happen are me getting this publication up and LMT and I are going to Church. Of all the publications that I have made here over the years, this one receives the least amount of commentary. Some may even wonder why I continue to do it. Don’t I have more important thing to be doing at this time on Sunday morning?

The fact of the matter is that this publication is making for some big, happy surprises when I slip into the next life. I will never be able to know who all this publication reached in this life or how it may have impacted them. I do know that the Lord’s Word does not come back void. I know that giving him Praise by sharing his Word here does great and mighty things that I cannot know of in this life.

I hope this publication has been a blessing to you in some way over the course of its existence here. You should also know that even if we have ceased operations here, if this publication is still accessible the link that is always provided will still be live. You will still be able to find a blessing here every Sunday morning if you should seek it out.

At the link below you will find the streaming webcast from North Jacksonville Baptist Church. The webcast will stream content all day, along with the live webcast of our Sunday Morning Worship Service that starts at 10:45am East Coast time. Please feel welcome to join.

Thinking About Watching The Upcoming Solar Eclipse?

It’s supposed to happen on August 21, 2017. Many places in the Continental United States will have a view. Below is a map of where the eclipse will be total. If you are not on the track you will see a partial eclipse. Take your time. The eclipse takes a long time to transpire.

Click to enlarge

There is a website dedicated to helping you prepare for viewing it and it provides information about past and future eclipses. All advice about viewing an eclipse warns you to not look directly at the sun, even for a moment. It will damage your eyes.

Here Cody has instructions to allow you to build a safe viewer out of cheap stuff. You can make it more sophisticated but this looks like it works fine.

Time to start wrapping things up at the Revo

MadBrad and I started the Revo in November of 2007 in a fit of anger over what was going on in a different forum that we both frequented. We didn’t really know what the goal was to be other than having a place to vent without interference. I vaguely remember the idea that it would be a cross between National Review and National Lampoon: Smart but irreverent. And so it was.

In November of 2007, I didn’t have a Facebook account, an Instagram account or a Twitter account and you probably didn’t either. It was a great time to launch a standalone blog. In fact, it was the heyday of blogs and we rode that wave.

When we launched, Barack Obama was a name most Americans had not yet heard. That quickly changed and the site was critical of his crypto-Marxist, socially transformative, the-state-is-everything brand of politics. In the days of the Tea Party, the Revo had wings. We grew at one point to a steady 15,000 hits per day.

Those were fun days. We made new friends. We had meet-ups and we were all of likeminds. We stood for free speech, free markets, free trade, free people and free minds. We had a blast.

Things kind of turned south for us in 2016. The Trump candidacy tore us apart. I am still processing all the ways it did so. There is no way to easily summarize that split.

Some of us liked Trump for his policy on immigration and building a wall on the southern border. Nothing else about that man mattered.

Some of us wanted to defeat the left and that was everything. One writer called the election of 2016 the “Flight 97 Election”. We had to storm the cockpit even if that meant flying the plane right into the bedrock. Defeating Clinton was all that mattered.

Others, me included, felt that we were being offered a no win choice. Neither Clinton nor Trump offered what we were looking for in government. Tails we lose, heads they win.

The result was that the band of brothers was torn apart. The blog became schizophrenic with a split personality both supporting and opposing Trump and his agenda.

Readership plummeted. Commentary withered. Many of us began to feel like strangers in our own home. For me at least, blogging is no longer any fun.

I suppose one solution would to pick a side and run with it. For example, I could just get on the Trump bandwagon and make this yet another site of Hannity-like Trump cheerleading. Yeah, I am not going to do that.

I could ask my co-bloggers to make posts more in line with my thinking but, no, I am not going to do that either.

We could continue on in this schizophrenic way as a house divided against itself but that is no fun and if this isn’t fun, it is pointless.

The reality is that our time is up. Whatever was the purpose of the Real Revo, it is no longer operative. It isn’t 2007 anymore. Facebook clubs and so forth let anyone rant on the Internet and we get pulled into smaller and smaller subgroups. The days of standalone blogs are getting short.

Combine that reality with the ideological divisions here and, well, we are reaching the end of the line. I think we jumped the shark last summer at the Republican convention. There was nothing happy about Happy Days after the Fonz jumped the shark.

Therefore, it is time to start wrapping things up here. I don’t want to just pull the plug, however. I want to give people a chance to discuss. One thought is that I archive the blog and replace it with a discussion forum where anyone can post.

Whatever the case, it is time for a change.

Thoughts?
