Sour Grapes?


Nah, this is just Trump being Trump. Whenever Trump acts like a normal, rational, respectable human being, his poll numbers drop.

Conversely, whenever Trump drops trou and shows his ass, his poll numbers soar.

The Tweets above are just Trump goosing his poll numbers going into New Hampshire.

“Army and Marine Corps chiefs: It’s time for women to register for the draft”

The top officers in the Army and Marine Corps testified on Tuesday that they believe it is time for women to register for future military drafts, following the Pentagon’s recent decision to open all jobs in combat units to female service members.”

“Rand Paul drops out of presidential race”

He won’t be the last.

rand paul b&w

Rand Paul dropped out of the 2016 race for the White House Wednesday, following a disappointing finish in the Iowa caucus.

“Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to fight for the cause of Liberty,” the Kentucky senator said in a three-paragraph statement that used the term “liberty” three times.

He continued: “Brushfires of Liberty were ignited and those will carry on, as will I.”

What An Opportunity For Fraud!

Oh, man. Who gets to be the city official who decides who gets the dough?

corruption

The D.C. Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a bill that includes a proposal to pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. It’s based on a program in Richmond, California, that advocates say has contributed to deep reductions in crime there.

Under the bill, city officials would identify up to 200 people a year who are considered at risk of either committing or becoming victims of violent crime. Those people would be directed to participate in behavioral therapy and other programs. If they fulfill those obligations and stay out of trouble, they would be paid.

The bill doesn’t specify the value of the stipends, but participants in the California program receive up to $9,000 per year.

[…]

Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie, a Democrat who wrote the legislation, said it was part of a comprehensive approach to reducing violent crime in the city, which experienced a 54 percent increase in homicides last year. Homicides and violent crime are still down significantly since the 2000s, and even more so since the early 1990s when the District was dubbed the nation’s “murder capital.”

McDuffie argued that spending $9,000 a year in stipends “pales in comparison” to the cost of someone being victimized, along with the costs of incarcerating the offender.

“I want to prevent violent crime — particularly gun violence — by addressing the root causes and creating opportunities for people, particularly those individuals who are at the highest risks of offending,” McDuffie, a former prosecutor, said in a letter to constituents last week.

Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser has not committed to funding the program, which would cost $4.9 million over four years, including $460,000 a year in stipend payments, according to the District’s independent chief financial officer. “

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

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

Image-shown-of-a-3D-printer

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

Funny. No One Called Wolverton A Racist

Tim Wolverton owns a gun store in Jackson, Mississippi. He has printed up a sign for his store that reads, “If you voted for Kenneth Stokes or Barack Obama you are too stupid to own a gun and we won’t sell you one”. Stokes is a city councilman who has urged local black people to throw bricks at police. But Stokes has his large panties in a wad because… Well, for one thing he seems to be pretty much illiterate.

Wolverton isn’t backing down.

What happened to the Liberty Tree?

Are you old enough to remember the Bicentennial Minutes on television? I am. The Bicentennial of 1976 was a big deal and, as a 12 year old, I was right at the age for it to make an impact.

Here is the fate of the Liberty Tree.

Obama Executive Order: “Make combat weapons safer, not more lethal”

“”The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” – Albert Einstein”

smartgun

With that White House history, Mr. Scales (Retired Army Maj. Gen. Robert Scales) said, “I had to laugh” at Mr. Obama’s priority — smart guns.

“Presidential involvement in small arms has been strategic and game-changing in our history,” said Mr. Scales, a former commandant of the U.S. Army War College. “Obama comes along and tells the Army that, in this administration, money is going into small arms to build — not a deadly weapon, not an effective weapon, not a dominant weapon, not a lifesaving weapon, not a technological cutting-edge weapon — but a weapon that prevents accidental discharge. Give me a break.”

Sanders Campaign Says Iowa Democrats Won’t Post Results From All Precincts

Now, that sounds like a Clinton move. These numbers will change. Reported delegate count:

Clinton: 699.57

Sanders: 697.77

DES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa Democratic Party informed the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernard Sanders late Monday night that it has no results for 90 precincts across the state, which could account for as much as 5 percent of the total vote. And the party has asked the campaigns for help in getting a tally for those missing results.

“We are, right now, calling all our precinct captains on precincts where we have knowledge of what’s missing, to report what we think happened there,” a visibly irate Robert Becker, Sanders’ state director told Roll Call after Sanders’ speech at the Holiday Inn near the Des Moines airport.”

Is Segregation Now Okay If You Choose It?

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

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

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

Isaac Bloodworth, a sixth-semester puppetry major, however, ascribed opposition to the plan as simply racist.”

Yep. Puppetry major. Is that really worth the cost of the tuition? U Conn charges $25K a year for residents and $47K for non-residents.

“Cruz Crushes Cartel”

How big was Cruz’ win in Iowa? Yuuuge! I have never before heard conservatives call the GOP a ‘Cartel’.

Now we look toward New Hampshire.

From Conservative Review:

Currently my favorite image of Cruz

Currently my favorite image of Cruz

Make no mistake about it: this was not just a huge win for Cruz, it was a momentous victory for conservatives who have been so disenfranchised for so many years. Given the expectations of the caucuses over the past few weeks, Cruz is likely to pick up tremendous momentum from this win and is very well positioned in South Carolina. He’s even better positioned in the SEC primary, which will award over 600 delegates on March 1st.

Watch for the entire political establishment to rally behind Rubio in the coming days and for the attacks to grow more vociferous this week. But judging by the mood of the voters, they are no longer buying what the political establishment is selling.”

How Do You Sell A Turd To An American?

BERNIE smiley

You make it cool to own one. How is Bernie Sanders being sold? He’s not doing it himself. He couldn’t. He has never accomplished a thing in his life that he can brag about. Since he has decided to run for the Oval and he saw thousands of people attend his rallies he has found himself on the crest of a wave and it is making both him and his followers crazy.

How would you make a seventy-something socialist goofball look cool to young voters? Here is a bit of what is being done:

The old fart is sexy?

Ye shall mark thy homes….

Untitled-1

…or suffer my wrath!

DES MOINES, IA—Declaring that all voting-age citizens who took the measures would be spared, Hillary Clinton ominously instructed her supporters throughout Iowa to mark their front doors with her campaign logo before sundown, sources confirmed Sunday. “All those residing in Iowa take heed: Your home shall bear the mark of my campaign this eve, or may God help you,” said the Democratic candidate after dispatching a phalanx of campaign staffers to all four corners of the state to spread the message of her directive. “Be within your dwellings with the doors closed and locked before nightfall, and do not cross the threshold before the sun rises again in the sky. The emblem of the red-and-blue H will protect my true voters.” At press time, Clinton issued a statement ordering all Iowan supporters who remain on Monday morning to bring forth their progeny between 18 and 34 years of age to the polls.

Rise Of The Protest Voters

I have given up on the idea that our ship can be righted.

TrumpSupport_0

Many gave up before me, refusing to vote for the previous two RINO candidates. “Do what it takes to win”, we implored them. “We can’t afford to have a Barack Obama presidency.”, we exclaimed. Those who refused and stayed home weren’t buying it. They were sick and tired of the serial abuse they’d suffered at the hands of their  Republican overlords. It took me longer to protest, but I’m there.

I don’t think that our society will ever have enough people get involved in the nitty-gritty of party politics to right the ship. That is the ONLY WAY to force the RINO’s to do your bidding. The only way short of hemp and street lamps, anyway. The problem with electing our way to correction is much deeper and more pervasive a concern – the deep state. Even if we magically awoke to a compliant Republican Party and 100% participation rate, the deep state would continue on, unmolested. Changing heads and changing parties accomplishes absolutely nothing but to slow the inexorable tide of progressive infiltration. Our government is simply too large.

I gave a speech at the first Tea Party rally in 2009. I had people screaming and cheering my words until I mentioned “their” entitlements. Progressives only want to protect the “rights” that they like or things that – while not rights – they think should be rights. Likewise, many in the smaller government crowd want to cut government down to a more manageable (constitutional) size, but they don’t want to lose their “investment” in the leviathan.

Those who control the beast don’t want to see anything go away. Every dollar taken from the budget directly translates to a loss of control for these power brokers. Thus, these power brokers do the dancing monkey routine, crying with us during the campaign, only to stab us in the back as soon as they have the opportunity. This abuse of our trust, over the past two decades, has caused many of us to lose hope that anything can be changed. So, we sit out of the elections or we cast a conscience ballot which ultimately becomes a vote for the greater-of-two evils, regardless of which party you tend toward.

Evil. Always. Wins.

In 2008, people were so tired of GW Bush that they voted for the most-unlike-Bush. They elected a black, crypto-marxist of dubious provenance because they liked what he had to say. He said things that didn’t sound like the other guy. He gave voice to their anger. Again in 2012, after four years of failure, more people stayed home who would normally vote Republican, and once again the crypto-marxist failure was elected.

Populists_0

This year, a man has joined the cacophony of disgruntled Republican voices; a amn so bold as to say all of the many things that everyday Americans utter in their private conversations, but never hear on a national platform. Nevermind that his brand of Hopenchange™ will be completely ineffective. Never you mind that he has spent his entire life as a New York progressive. Forget about the fact that lacks a fundamental understanding of – or respect for – the US Constitution. Disregard his promise to abuse executive orders or act unilaterally.

Donald Trump is capturing the populist vote. So is Bernie Sanders. From both sides of the isle, the people have become so disgusted with the political process as to back whomever is the greatest departure from what we have been offered. These people are the protest voters.

On the left the protest voters are ready to go full retard. On the right, people like me, would rather “waste” their vote than vote one more time against their principles. People who fall into the “independent” portion of both sides of the spectrum (typically 1/3 of those identifying as either right or left of center) are squarely in the Outlandish Candidate camps.

When considered in light of the vast numbers of people who just don’t give a crap, can’t be bothered, or would rather waste their vote – this is shaping up to be an election to end America as we know it.

But then, the dream of America that we’ve been holding on to has been gone for some time, hasn’t it?

The tRUMP Cult

TRUMP-LIVES-620x605

I have no words for this. It’s no different than the cult following that Herr Obama had back in ’08. This poster scares the shit out of me. It reminds me of those pamphlets that the Jehovah Witness’ leave on your doorstep, portraying graphic images of sinners being cast in a lake of fire for being non-believers. In this poster, we see lost souls enthusiastically following a false prophet which will ultimately lead to their doom.

I don’t think it’s a parody.

“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 last but not least here.

hillary gabbing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“… we cannot let unsophisticated comments stand.”

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

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

classroom

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

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

[…]

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

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

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

Ted Cruz Converts Angry Iowa Corn Farmer

This is worth watching – and sharing.

You can sense how angry the farmer is, but Cruz employs his impressively deep knowledge of the subject to explain calmly why his policies will HELP farmers, even though he’ll phase out the government subsidy.

Maybe the farmer was just being nice at the end, but he went from total anger to a pretty calm and accepting demeanor, all due to Cruz’s engaging arguments.

Now ask yourself – do you think you’d get that kind of understanding out of Trump?”

The slack-ass bum who wants to rob you…

His name is Bernie Sanders and he has the passionate support of slack-ass bums coast to coast.

His family managed to send him to the University of Chicago. Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check.

“I never had any money my entire life,” Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington.

Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — “We will raise taxes;” he confirmed Monday, “yes, we will.”

One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.

Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”

Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him.

The only thing he was good at was talking … non-stop … about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. “The whole quality of life in America is based on greed,” the bitter layabout said. “I believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation.”

Of course he does. Slack-ass bums always want to steal the earnings of those who actually create wealth.

Here are a bunch of slack-ass Iowans who strongly support their slack-ass candidate. Oddly, they seem really angry about another progressive candidate when asked.

What do Trump and Sanders share in common?

I mean beside their shared desire to continue Planned Parenthood funding, increase ethanol mandates and erect barriers to international trade. They both want to take Obamacare to the next level and institute true universal health care. Here he is on Meet the Press yesterday.

We’re going to work with our hospitals. We’re going to work with our doctors. We’ve got to do something. You can’t have a — a small percentage of our economy, because they’re down and out, have absolutely no protection so they end up dying from, you know, what you could have a simple procedure or even a pill. You can’t do that. We’ll work something out. That doesn’t mean single payer. And I mean, maybe he’s got no heart. And if this means I lose an election, that’s fine, because, frankly, we have to take care of the people in our country. We can’t let them die on the sidewalks of New York or the sidewalks of Iowa or anywhere else.

Don’t worry. I am sure when Trump gets busy working with hospitals, free health care won’t result in shortages, rationing and increased costs. Not this time. Not with Trump. He gets deals done.
