Al Qaeda Says Omar Mateen Made A Mistake

Al Qaeda wants to claim responsibility for terror attacks. It makes them more terrifying. In this case, in their magazine, “Inspire”, they point out that attacking minorities like homosexuals robs them of that credit.

“Al Qaeda to jihadis: ‘Target white Americans, avoid minorities, because US mislabels attacks as ‘hate crime’”

aqap-1-680x382

Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has published a guide urging jihadis to carry out more ‘lone wolf’ operations in the U.S. following the deadly terror attack in Orlando earlier this month and to set their sights on the targeting of white Americans.

The publication, “Inspire guide: Orlando operation,” which seeks to capitalize on the terror attack carried out by gunman Omar Mateen who pledged allegiance to ISIS, plainly encourages extremists to attack Americans.

While Mateen chose to target what the guide refers to as a “homosexual nightclub,” noting that killing gay people is “the most binding duty and closer to human nature,” it suggests to “avoid targeting places and crowds where minorities are generally found in America,” because “the federal government will be the one taking full responsibility.”

A bit further into the article there is this:

We standby and support all Muslims who attack America in their homeland regardless of their affiliation to any group or loyalty,” the guide states, justifying the targeting of American civilians with the suggestion that since they elect and pay taxes to a government with “oppressive polices against Muslims everywhere,” they are a population at “war with Islam,” and can no longer be deemed ‘civilians.’

In the guide, the Orlando attack is referred to as one of “the most successful Lone Jihad operations” and will undoubtedly “inspire others to wage similar operations.”

Inventing Shame At The New York Times

Daniel may well have learned to make whiskey from a slave. What he did with that knowledge, though, is written in the 150 year history of success of his company.

Lots of people have made whiskey. Not many have taken the raw moonshine and turned it into an internationally known brand.

earns_brown_forman

The black labeled version of Daniel’s product is labeled ‘Old No. 7’. Perhaps Mr. Daniel only settled on his recipe after several tries. Aging is what makes whiskey dark and gives it taste. That’s why moonshine is nearly always clear. It’s not aged in charred barrels. Aging takes time, too. Years. Moonshiners are in too much hurry to wait for aging.

The Jack Daniel’s distillery is telling the story that Mr. Daniel learned to make hootch from a slave. That’s a good story and it may be true. It’s not a good thing for news media to try to make it look like Daniel cheated the slave.

“Jack Daniel learned to make whiskey from a slave, the Tennessee distillery admits after 150 years”

Jack Daniel, with mustache and white hat, is shown at his distillery in Tennessee in the late 1800s. The man to his right could be a son of Nearis Green, a slave who helped teach Daniel how to make whiskey

Jack Daniel, with mustache and white hat, is shown at his distillery in Tennessee in the late 1800s. The man to his right could be a son of Nearis Green, a slave who helped teach Daniel how to make whiskey

This year is the 150th anniversary of Jack Daniel’s, and the distillery, home to one of the world’s best-selling whiskeys, is using the occasion to tell a different, more complicated tale. Daniel, the company now says, didn’t learn distilling from Dan Call, but from a man named Nearis Green — one of Call’s slaves.

This version of the story was never a secret, but it is one that the distillery has only recently begun to embrace, tentatively, in some of its tours, and in a social media and marketing campaign this summer.”

Know Any Feminists? Ask Them This Question…

‘Why don’t western feminists fight for Muslim women?’

Better yet, have them watch this video from Ayaan Hirsi Ali for Prager University. In it Ali explains the differences between how western culture treats women and how they are treated under Sharia. She also describes the excuses given by western feminists when asked why they ignore the plight of Muslim women.

Ali grew up a Muslim. She knows Sharia. She has a pretty strong accent which sometimes makes her a bit hard to understand but the Prager U people have helpfully provided everything she says in printed form so you will miss nothing.

NAFTA is nothing like the European Union

If I were British, I would have voted to leave the EU. I would have done so with the sincere hope that Britain would maintain free trade with the EU nations and the world.

My vote to leave would have been based on a desire for national sovereignty, smaller government and local control of the law. The EU has become a massive, unaccountable bureaucracy that dictates law and regulation for hundreds of millions.

The predecessor to the EU was the EEC and it was simply about economic cooperation and free trade between sovereign nations. Free trade and economic cooperation still widely popular in Britain today. Starting in 1993, the EU became much more than that. It is a bureaucracy that holds ultimate sovereignty centrally.

If the EU were merely a free trade organization like the EEC, I would have enthusiastically voted to remain.

NAFTA is not the EU. It is nothing like the EU. It isn’t a political organization. It isn’t a form of government. It is a free trade treaty that I wholeheartedly support. I don’t think Americans understand what NAFTA is and the benefit it provides.

Polls show a wave of opposition to trade agreements. Americans, by a margin of 65 percent to 22 percent, say they want more restrictions on international trade, according to a Bloomberg poll in March. The same poll found Americans believe Nafta is a trade deal gone awry that has done more harm than good.

Republican Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama said the Brexit vote could influence the evolution of American opinion, in the same way the era of Margaret Thatcher preceded President Ronald Reagan’s election. “The failed European Union experiment, and Great Britain’s rejection of it, must serve as a wake-up call for all of us in America,” Sessions said in a statement.

Trump says that if he is elected, he will tear up NAFTA. That would cost Americans billions of dollars and would do absolutely, positively nothing to reduce the heavy handed onerous regulation of every aspect of our lives.

Our regulatory and legal oppression doesn’t come from a EU-like bureaucracy in another country. It doesn’t come from free trade and commerce. It comes from Washington DC and “tearing up” NAFTA won’t change that. We will be just as oppressed as ever but less wealthy.

Democrats love governmental regulation of all things…

Well, not all things. There is one thing that they demand be completely unregulated: the killing of unborn children by their mothers.

The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Texas law regulating abortion clinics, delivering a 5-3 decision that was the high court’s first major foray into the abortion issue in nine years.

Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion for the court, with Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan joining him. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas dissented.

“We agree with the District Court that the surgical center requirement, like the admitting-privileges requirement, provides few, if any, health benefits for women, poses a substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions, and constitutes an ‘undue burden’ on their constitutional right to do so,” Breyer wrote.

President Obama said in a statement that he was “pleased” with the outcome.

That’s right, the federal government will regulate what type of light bulb you use in your kitchen, how much an ISP can charge for Internet access, how much salt is in your can of soup, whether or not your rifle can specific kind of grip and what must be on the menu board at a burger joint but it will tolerate no regulations in abortion mills.

Are we all either nationalists or globalists?

Over the weekend, during commentary about Brexit, Trump and so forth, I heard someone say this: “There are no longer liberals and conservatives, there are only nationalist and globalists.”

That got me thinking and I believe it is a bit more complex than that. In order to look at it more closely, we need to agree to some definitions. Here is my attempt.

Nationalism: Advocates for one nation above others and believes citizens should loyal to and proud of their country and believe that it is better and more important than other countries.

Globalism: Advocates for the free movement of people, goods and information across national borders unfettered. A socio-economic system dedicated to free trade and free access to markets.

There are, however, variations of each.

Classical liberalism: Advocates for individual liberty and political freedom with representative democracy under the rule of law and emphasizes economic freedom. Emphasizes individualism.

Collectivism: Advocates government action to achieve economic growth and believes the role of the government is to create jobs and guide the culture. Emphasizes governmental solutions.

Obama Administration and UN Announce Global Police Force to Fight ‘Extremism’ In U.S.

This means you – and me.

Biden-Lynch-UN-Getty-640x480

The United Nations is a sharia-compliant world body, and Obama, speaking there just days ago, insisted that “violent extremism” is not exclusive to Islam (which it is). Obama is redefining jihad terror to include everyone but the jihadists. So will the UN, driven largely by the sharia-enforcing Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the pro-Islamic post-American President Obama, use a “global police force” to crush counter-jihad forces?”

Leftists Are Bringing Violence To Their Protests

Thirty white nationalists, that the media are calling ‘Neo-Nazis’ applied for and received a permit to rally peacefully. They were attacked by about 400 people with sticks and knives.

This summer is going to be ugly.

“10 Hurt as White Nationalists Clash With Protesters in California”

A white nationalist group’s rally outside the California state Capitol building turned violent as fighting broke out with a larger group of counter protesters, leaving 10 people injured with stab wounds, cuts and bruises.

Fights erupted when about 30 members of the Traditionalist Worker Party gathering to rally around noon Sunday were met by about 400 counter-protesters, California Highway Patrol Officer George Granada said.”

Orwell on Patriotism vs Nationalism

I have been thinking about this over the weekend and have another post on the topic coming up.

Nationalism is not to be confused with patriotism. Both words are normally used in so vague a way that any definition is liable to be challenged, but one must draw a distinction between them, since two different and even opposing ideas are involved. By ‘patriotism’ I mean devotion to a particular place and a particular way of life, which one believes to be the best in the world but has no wish to force on other people. Patriotism is of its nature defensive, both militarily and culturally. Nationalism, on the other hand, is inseparable from the desire for power. The abiding purpose of every nationalist is to secure more power and more prestige, not for himself but for the nation or other unit in which he has chosen to sink his own individuality.

Yahoo!: “Brexit vote a warning to Clinton campaign”

I’ll say it is. British voters rejected the country’s membership in the European Union. There will be some difficulty as a result of that decision but voters there knew it and accepted it. They rejected the overwhelming control the EU had on their lives. They chose to go their own way.

Hillary-clinton-drunk

Hillary Clinton is all about overwhelming control. She couples that with an alcoholic tendency toward anger and violence. Americans know about that. She can not hide it. She can only try to lie about it.

For Hillary Clinton’s campaign, this is something of a warning not to underestimate this disaffection, not to underestimate political and economic nationalism,” Richard Haas, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, told reporters Friday.

A Sunday Sermon

Good morning Real Revo. It is a great day to be alive. I am looking forward to what I have ahead of me on this day of rest and worship.

Our Friday Night Movie showed the value of having this publication every Sunday. Sergeant York had an unwavering Faith in God. His encounter with Jesus Christ changed him from who he was into more of the man God wanted him to be. When he went into battle, God shielded him from everything the Enemy did to try to kill him.

Likewise when we receive God’s daily bread and make it part of our life and take our daily walk in Faith, wearing the whole armor that God provides we can also be invincible warriors.

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 us.

“Masses rise up across pond – now get ready for Hillexit”

Mr. Carr says the Brexit vote is a warning to US politicians. ‘The people are in revolt’ – or something. In reality, the revolt has been happening for quite some time here.

Maybe the Trump phenomenon is an unheeded warning that the people of Britain were going to reject the European Union. Maybe, in these days of instant communication world wide, the people of the western countries came to a similar conclusion all at once.

Americans began by rejecting the establishment candidate, Jeb Bush, and clung to anti-establishment people because it is a Presidential election. In Britain the people did it with the Brexit initiative. Now other Euroean countries are following their lead.

This is from Howie Carr in the Boston Herald:

hill clinton

Brexit is the canary in the coal mine for the presidential elections here.

And the elites on both sides of the Atlantic know it. If the masses can rise up over there, they can storm the Bastille here, too. As distraught as the Masters of the Universe are over Brexit, what they’re even more panicked about is the possibility of a Hillexit, and an Obexit.

Donald Trump is our living, breathing Brexit — with a Queens accent.”

‘An Inconvenient Truth’

One of the things that leftists use to acquire power over their subjects is fear. They can make people afraid of Jews as the Nazis did in the 1930’s and 40’s. Muslims are doing it today. They have tried to cause fear among the populace, and especially the young, by warning that the increases in world population are unsustainable. We will eventually run out of food and people will starve.

More recently they have told us that the world is getting warmer and it is our fault for embracing technology and assembly lines and for heating our homes. The guilt they sell is supposed to make us accept the increased controls they intend to place on our lives and the wasting of our money to install solar farms and wind generator farms.

In order to pull this off they must have something they can point to and say, “See? It’s happening.” The actual temperature records won’t support their claims of warming so the data must be ‘Adjusted’ to make it appear that they do.

It’s all a sham. The world is cooling.

This has been going on across the western world. The elites have been consolidating their control. The people are rejecting them. It’s the reason we have Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders appealing to so many Americans. It’s the reason for the Brexit vote in Britain.

“To The Horror Of Global Warming Alarmists, Global Cooling Is Here”

cold weather ahead

At first the current stall out of global warming was due to the ocean cycles turning back to cold. But something much more ominous has developed over this period. Sunspots run in 11 year short term cycles, with longer cyclical trends of 90 and even 200 years. The number of sunspots declined substantially in the last 11 year cycle, after flattening out over the previous 20 years. But in the current cycle, sunspot activity has collapsed. NASA’s Science News report for January 8, 2013 states,

“Indeed, the sun could be on the threshold of a mini-Maunder event right now. Ongoing Solar Cycle 24 [the current short term 11 year cycle] is the weakest in more than 50 years. Moreover, there is (controversial) evidence of a long-term weakening trend in the magnetic field strength of sunspots. Matt Penn and William Livingston of the National Solar Observatory predict that by the time Solar Cycle 25 arrives, magnetic fields on the sun will be so weak that few if any sunspots will be formed. Independent lines of research involving helioseismology and surface polar fields tend to support their conclusion.”

That is even more significant because NASA’s climate science has been controlled for years by global warming hysteric James Hansen, who recently announced his retirement.”

Friday Night at the Movies

SgtYork

It’s a beautiful Friday night and the weekend is here. Welcome to the Real Revo Theater. Tonight is a special night. My computer has been down for a little over a week now, due to a series of events. I had no way to pick out and set up a movie for tonight so I handed the ball to RD, my Brother from the All American Division. The movie we have tonight is an excellent choice that is the result of teamwork. Teamwork is something I learned all about while serving as an All American. The movie tonight centers around a man whose legendary performance as a Soldier has served to inspire all the Troopers of the All American Division who have followed.

Sergeant York is considered to be the most recognized Hero of World War One. His fearsome use of his Rifle has inspired Soldiers with the knowledge that a dedicated marksman can accomplish much. In the years leading up to World War One there was no evidence that Alvin York would become a national hero. He was a heavy drinker and bar room brawler…

“I got in bad company and I broke off from my mother’s and father’s advice and got to drinking and gambling and playing up right smart…I used to drink a lot of Moonshine. I used to gamble my wages away week after week. I used to stay out late at nights. I had a powerful lot of fistfights.”

Politico: “Uprising in the Rust Belt”

Democrats have turned their backs on union workers. Barack Obama swore to destroy the coal industry and Hillary Clinton has said the same thing. That means coal workers lose their jobs. These workers can see that their jobs are at risk, too, from Democrat regulations. Democrats have become tools of the socialists, the communists, and the greens. That has put them at odds with American workers.

“They used to be Democrats. Now they really could hand Donald Trump the White House.”

iron workers

In the past, people here have turned to the Democrats,” said Chris Borick, director of the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion in Allentown, Pa., 200 miles to the east. “They were the ones who looked after working-class interests, in their minds. But there is a belief that that isn’t the case anymore—and now they’re shopping around for an alternative.”

Once Again Democrats Choose The Side Opposing Civil Rights

Throughout American History Democrats have opposed civil rights. They were the people who supported slavery. The Republican party was formed to fight it. After slavery was abolished they continued to teach their children that blacks were sub-human. They passed laws embracing the notions that black people should be segregated from whites.

Democrats have been the party of gun control, passing laws and regulations restricting your God-given right that is further guaranteed in the Bill Of Rights of the US Constitution. Recently they threw a tantrum on the floor of the House of Representatives because their demands that people placed on a no-fly list be prohibited from buying a gun. They had no proposal to allow due process for anyone finding themselves on such a list. They envisioned the list growing until everyone on the right was included on it.

“Professors investigated for presenting opposing viewpoints”

The University of Northern Colorado charges good money for wasting student’s time. Checking the costs there I found this page which explains how much it costs for a year’s ‘Education’ there. With the kind of attitude that prevails at UNC the students are not being educated. Rather they are being indoctrinated. Only one viewpoint is allowed. Professors are forbidden from discussing alternative viewpoints.

unc tuitions and fees

“Two professors at the University of Northern Colorado were investigated after students complained that they were forced to hear opposing viewpoints.”

"Coexist, baby"

“Coexist, baby”

The complaints were made to Northern Colorado’s “Bias Response Team,” an Orwellian office on campus that asks students to report their peers and professors for anything that upsets or offends them. When the news outlet Heat Street made an open records request for some of the complaints, it discovered that two students had become so upset about having to hear an opinion they disagreed with they filed reports with school administrators.

And rather than telling the students to buck up because they might hear those opinions outside of college or on the news or in the media, the schools told the professors to stop teaching that there’s an alternate viewpoint.”

Something you will never hear on TV

pulseIt doesn’t fit the narrative.  Remember, this crime was committed by a self-hating closeted gay man who could not reconcile his desires with his beliefs.  Oh, and easy access to guns.  That, too.  A self-loathing homosexual who was provided easy access to assault-style machine guns.

Or Not.

So far, [the FBI] have found no photographs, no text messages, no smartphone apps, no gay pornography and no cell-tower location data to suggest that Mateen — who was twice married to women and had a young son — conducted a secret gay life, the officials said.

The FBI is continuing to explore Mateen’s past, but investigators now believe the men who made the claims are not credible, or confused Mateen with someone else.

The FBI has not said whether it has uncovered any evidence that Mateen visited the Pulse nightclub prior to the shooting.

Remember, this is all about inclusion and common sense gun laws, not radical Islam / Jihadi terrorism, despite what the gunman has actually proclaimed or what the FBI investigation reveals.

A BREXIT lesson for America

Angela Merkel drove the UK out of the EU and Obama’s amnesty gave us Donald Trump.

If any one person drove the United Kingdom out of the European Union, it was Angela Merkel, and her impulsive solo decision in the summer of 2015 to throw open Germany—and then all Europe—to 1.1 million Middle Eastern and North African migrants, with uncountable millions more to come. Merkel’s catastrophically negative example is one that perhaps should be avoided by U.S. politicians who seek to avert Trump-style populism in the United States. Instead, the politician who most directly opposes Donald Trump—presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton—is doubling down on Merkelism.

Hillary Clinton’s first reaction to the Supreme Court decision on executive amnesty looks at the issue exclusively and entirely from the point of view of the migrants themselves: “Today’s heartbreaking #SCOTUS immigration ruling could tear apart 5 million families facing deportation. We must do better.” That U.S. citizens might have different interests—and that it is the interests of citizens that deserve the highest attention of officials elected by those citizens—went unsaid and apparently unconsidered. But somebody is considering it. And those somebodies, in their many millions, are being heard from this year: loud, clear, and angry.

If Clinton, Obama and both parties in Congress have any sense at all, they will pay attention and they will adjust their behavior accordingly.

One of the most exciting breakthroughs in science is here. CRISPR is a new technology that can edit DNA with remarkable precision, and it has the potential to change human lives forever.

With the ability to easily tweak DNA, scientists could theoretically remove genetic mutations that are responsible for incurable diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, HIV, and even certain cancers. Researchers are now beginning to test those possibilities on human cells in the lab. But CRISPR is already being used on crops, insects and more.”
