A Patriot Speaks at the Democrat Convention – How Odd

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The political world is buzzing over Khizr Khan’s democrat convention speech the other night, in which he urged his fellow Muslims and immigrants not to take this election lightly.

His speech started well – very patriotic – a story of an immigrant family who, in 1980, came to America with little or nothing. Khan said that with hard work they “could share in and contribute to its [America’s] blessings.”

Well, sir – you sounded very sincere – and if you were – why on Earth did you choose to speak at the hate-America and blame-America-first convention? If you have been in this country for any length of time – and you have – you should have learned that the democrat party is party of no work, not hard work. Its convention was one speaker after another either demanding or promising some sort of big government giveaway.

And why is Mr. Khan urging immigrants to not take the election lightly? Last I checked, “immigrants” are not supposed to be allowed to vote – or does that just apply to Republican immigrants. read more

Drone Mail Delivery

The Skynet concept offers a solution to the problems posed by drone delivery

The Skynet concept offers a solution to the problems posed by drone delivery.

With drone technology progressing so quickly, it may not be too long before they start dropping packages at our doorsteps. But proposals for how the vehicles can safely navigate fences, pets and small children haven’t been entirely convincing so far. A pair of Australians believe they have the answer, with a system that sees drones zero in to drop deliveries into a purpose-built net, guided by LEDs to ensure centimeter-perfect accuracy. read more

The Pipeline We Know Little About

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Remember the Keystone XL Pipeline project? Remember what a cause célèbre it was for both the left and right? What the heck ever happened to it? Have you wondered that?

Well, in short it was killed pretty much for good, or at least the foreseeable future – both here in the USSA and now in Canada. As you are no doubt aware, it was Obama who, with the left in the federal and various state legislatures – and with some help from Choo-choo Warren Buffet who owns most of the rail cars now hauling crude down south, vetoed the pipeline. And don’t forget all the gobs of leftist activist money thrown at killing the project.

You may also recall that Canada threatened to build their own pipeline to their west coast and ship the oil to Asia if the U.S. did not acquiesce. That was when the “conservatives” ran Canada. But with the election of lefty socialist (like there’s another kind) Justin Trudeau in Canada, the entire XL project, above and below the border, was pronounced dead.

And that was the end of any talk of long distance oil pipelines. Or is it?

There is another long distance oil pipeline which will span 1,172 miles – from North Dakota’s famous Bakken and Three Forks oil production zones all the way to Pakota, Illinois. read more

Proton Powered Spacecraft

Nasa engineers have revealed new details of a radical new propulsion system that could slash the time it takes for spacecraft to reach interstellar space.

The system would interact with particles released by the sun, repelling protons to create thrust and achieve unprecedented speeds.

Researchers say this could bring spacecraft to the heliopause in just 10 years – a feat that took the Voyager craft 35 years.

They hope to test their idea by 2020.

Country Music Stars Should Know Better than to Dis the Police

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Country stars have always espoused hard work, the military, the flag, traditional American values and certainly a reverence for our police officers.

Big names like Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood have even poked fun at liberals and democrats on the national stage.

In 2013 on the nationally televised Country Music Awards, you may recall the two, who hosted the event, even sung a duet called “Obamacare by Morning,” where they lampooned how pathetic Obamacare was and even worse was the Obamacare website which, as you recall, was nearly impossible to log onto and navigate.

Country music stars have always been music and Hollywood outliers – or one could say even outcasts – much more conservative than their pop, rock and R & B counterparts. After all, musicians are supposed to be angst-ridden leftists – but not in the world of country music.

Then came the Dixie Chicks, who, while on tour in the U.K. and on top of the country charts and the world, effectively ended their careers with a single comment. Lead singer, Natalie Maines, learning of George Bush’s decision to invade Iraq said: “Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.” read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

World’s strictest gun control didn’t stop mass shooting

The gunman was originally described as an 18-year-old loner. Locals who knew him described the young man as a “quiet guy.” This was the description of the perpetrator of the latest mass shooting – this time in Munich, Germany. But we know so much more now.

Police described him as being “deranged” – waging terror in Munich as he gunned down six males and three females, ranging in age 13 to 45. But he was no German. No – news reports classified him as an Iranian-German. read more
