Profiles of Treason – James Clapper

Guest Post by: John Velisek USN (Ret.)
for the Common Constitutionalist

James Clapper was named the director of National Intelligence in 2010 by President Obama. The American people were told that Clapper understood the importance of working with Congress and to keep Congress informed.

The words of Obama have not been borne out. We now know of the perjury before Congress that Clapper suborned. James Clapper lied to Congress about the metadata being assembled by the National Security Agency on American citizens. In the words of Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) :

“One of the most important responsibilities a senator has is oversight of the intelligence communities and can not do this job if they do not get straight answers to direct questions.”

James Clapper failed this test. His response, when brought out in the open by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, was:

“I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful manner.” read more

Just over a decade ago, Samsung announced the imminent arrival of the first laptops to come with 32 GB NAND flash storage. Now the company is set to shake up the storage tree again as it goes into mass production of the first consumer-level 4-bit, 4 TB SATA solid state drive, signaling a possible turning point for high capacity home storage. read more

Jim Jordan Accuser Begins to Fold

Isn’t it funny that when a good guy on the right decides to push back against his lying leftist accusers instead of just folding, as most spineless Republicans do, the leftists walk back their accusations.

Good for Jim Jordan for sticking to his guns.

from Conservative Review:

Former Ohio State wrestler walks back Jim Jordan accusations

There’s been a hiccup in the ongoing smear campaign against Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and the media is desperately spinning.

A former Ohio State wrestler who previously said Jordan knew of ongoing sexual abuse at Ohio State University by the wrestling team doctor now says he has no direct knowledge of what Jordan knew and is distancing himself from Jordan’s primary accuser, Michael DiSabato. read more

Joke of the Day

A rich Florida man decided that he wanted to throw a party and invited all of his buddies and neighbors. He also invited Leroy, the only Redneck in the neighborhood. He held the party around the pool in the backyard of his mansion.

Leroy was having a good time drinking, dancing, eating shrimp, oysters and BBQ and flirting with all the women.

At the height of the party, the host said, “I have a ten foot, man-eating gator in my pool and I’ll give a million dollars to anyone who has the nerve to jump in with it.” read more

WND Exclusive – CHICAGO IS A GANG-BANGER’S PARADISE

The Chicago Tribune reported that a man, “who lives on the West side of Union Avenue,” in Chicago was awaken by gun fire. It was around 2 a.m., when along with what he described as seven or eight shots, he also heard doors slamming and the screeching of tires.

What he heard was the attempted murder of a 31-year-old female trying to escape a situation in her GMC Yukon. She was shot in the head as she tried to speed away. The woman was taken to “University of Chicago Medical center, where she was in critical condition Wednesday morning.”

Oh, you must have thought I was reporting on one of the 74 weekend shootings in the Windy City this past weekend. No. This was one of the additional 16 shootings, including seven more murders committed from Monday to Wednesday, making a five-day total of 90 shootings and 19 murders. read more

Turns Out, Free Stuff is Really Expensive

from IBD:

Democratic Socialism: Who Knew That ‘Free’ Could Cost So Much?

Since the Democratic Party took a turn for the worse toward so-called democratic socialism, the party’s leading lights have laid the promises on pretty thick. Free Medicare for all! Guaranteed income! Guaranteed jobs! Subsidized housing! Free college! Universal pre-school! Wow, and all for free.

Well, not exactly. In a devastating piece that appeared on the left-of-center web site Vox (to its credit), Manhattan Institute fellow Brian Riedl went through the simple math of what free actually costs. It’s a lot.

It’s not just the free aspect, but the fact that the democratic socialists have made so many promises that must be paid for that will make it so tough to swallow for most voters. read more

Video Podcast – No Mo Money for No Mo NRA

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

You know the saying: “People vote with their wallets.” It means that people cast their vote for whomever and whatever has or will benefit them financially, or that they find vitally important.

But the saying applies to everything – not just elections. It even applies to charities and fund-raising.

The leftist group National March on the NRA, the NMNRA, which I lovingly call No Mo NRA, found this out after their pitiful crowd-funding effort. read more

Football Joke of the Day

It’s November 2023 and the United States has just elected a woman from Alabama as the President of the United States.

A few days after the election, the president-elect called her father in Birmingham and asks, “So, Daddy, I assume you and Mommy will be coming to my inauguration?”

“I don’t think so. It’s such a long drive, your mom isn’t as young as she used to be, we’ll have the dog with us and my arthritis is acting up in my knee.”

“Don’t worry about it, Daddy, I’ll send Air Force One to pick you up and take you back home after the ceremony. A limousine will pick you up and drop you off at your front door,” she said.

“I don’t know. Everybody will be dressed so fancy. What would your mother wear?” read more

The 3/5ths Clause Properly Explained

It seems whenever the Founding Fathers are discussed, that discussion invariable degrades into one of race and racism. Why should we look to old dead white guys for guidance? Heck, even the Constitution as originally written was racist. And those who make these claims point to the 3/5ths clause pertaining to the counting of slaves.

But the Clause in Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution is misunderstood by almost all today. Professor Carol Swain explains that the three-fifths clause was inserted by anti-slavery advocates to advantage the abolitionists.

Watch the Prager University video for the comprehensive explanation: read more

Even the EPA Admits Ethanol is no Good

from IBD:

EPA Says Ethanol Damages The Environment — Isn’t It Time To Kill The Program?

Amid all the media hoo-ha over President Trump’s latest tweets, tariffs and the Russia investigation, you might have missed a significant report — the Environmental Protection Agency says ethanol made from corn and soybeans and added to our gasoline has become an environmental disaster. So why do we continue to make it?

The devastating report — based on, yes, actual “science” — shows that the forced addition of ethanol to the nation’s gasoline is making our air dirtier.

The irony, of course, is that ethanol’s entire rationale is that it would make our air cleaner. read more
