Video Podcast – Senator Ben Sasse Takes to Facebook

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse (R, wrote a fairly lengthy Facebook post recently. When he posts to Facebook, it is usually very lengthy.

The main crux of the post was regarding the uptick in violence between the radical Left and the radical alt-Left. In case you are wondering who is who, let me clue you in.

The radical left, since the glory days of the Soviet Union, are the communists. They have renamed themselves as Antifa, or anti-fascists. The alternative Left are the fascists. Now you know. There is no one from the right – regular or alternative.

Sasse made several points – some good and some not so good. Misguided, if you will.

I discuss most them. I’d also like to apologies for almost being off camera for a segment! read more

Pro-Communist Protesters don’t Really Care about Slavery

There is nothing good about slavery. Owning another human being is lower than low. I would hope we can all agree.

We on the reasonable right knew that this push to expunge slave owners from American history would not end with Civil War statues, monuments and the like. We knew these radicals wouldn’t be satisfied with just Civil War era slave holders. We knew it would rapidly jump to the Founding Fathers (as it has),– the same Founders that the progressive left has been trying to erase since the days of Woodrow Wilson.

We also know that it won’t end with the slave-owning Founders. We know that this is a means to an end. If our political leadership – locally, and at the State and Federal level, continue to capitulate to, or worse, join these ill-guided rabble-rousers, the next demand will be to insist that our founding documents are, by default, illegitimate.

If Washington, Jefferson, Madison, et al, are erased, how could the documents they created live on?

The supposed protesters don’t really care about slavery. If they did, they would be forced to take a good long look at the ideology they are promoting. Communism has enslaved many millions more people than all American slave holders/traders combined. read more

Largest Land Animal Unearthed

After years of digging and research, paleontologists have identified a new species of dinosaur – and it seems to be the largest land animal to ever walk the Earth. Over 150 bones from at least six individual animals were found in a dig site in Argentina, and from those scientists were able to estimate their body mass, age, and the environment the beasts came from. read more

Boston Red Sox May Fold to Racial Pressure

Although not a native New Englander, I’ve lived up here for a lot of years. I walked Yawkey Way. I’ve listened to plenty of Boston Talk Radio including when Jay Severin was local and Howie Carr. They often discussed local Boston and Massachusetts politics. Not once in my time in New England have I heard what they are describing as a major racial issue. This is new and it’s ridiculous identity politics.

from the Blaze:

The Boston Red Sox may want to change the name of Yawkey Way. You already know why.

The Boston Herald on Thursday reported that Boston Red Sox principal owner John Henry will make an effort to change the name of Fenway Park’s Yawkey Way in a play to avoid being “haunted” by the racist legacy of Tom Yawkey. read more

This Little Piggy Grew an Organ

Growing human transplant organs in pigs has become a more realistic prospect after scientists used advanced gene editing to remove threatening viruses from the animals’ DNA.

Porcine endogenous retroviruses are permanently embedded in the pig genome but research has shown they can infect human cells, posing a potential hazard.

The existence of the virus has been a major stumbling block preventing the development of genetically engineered pigs to provide kidneys and other organs for transplant into human patients.

That hurdle may now have been cleared away, according to new research reported in the journal Science.

Researchers at Harvard University and a private company used the precision gene editing tool Crispr-Cas9 combined with gene repair technology to deactivate 100 percent of the virus in a line of pig cells.

Joke of the Day

Mary was having an affair during the day while her husband was at work. One day, she was in bed with her boyfriend Ralph, when she heard her husband’s car pull in the driveway. She yelled at Ralph, “Hurry! grab your clothes and jump out the window, my husband is home early!”

Ralph looked out the window and said, “I can’t jump out the window! It’s raining like hell out there.”

Mary cried, “If my husband catches us in here, he will kill both of us!” read more

Leftist Radicals Just Want to Watch the World Burn

As the president pointed out in his latest press conference, the original group that was protesting the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue actually had a permit to assemble and did so peacefully. The leftist/Marxist radicals did not obtain a permit.

Now I don’t care who you are. If you assemble peacefully and conduct yourself accordingly – you can be Communist/Marxist radicals or fascist skin head, neo-Nazis. Who cares. But when you cross the line and descend into violence, it should matter who you are.

As Tucker Carlson pointed out on his Tuesday evening Fox News program, it evidently it does matter who you are, or with what wacko group you belong.

Many of us witnessed the outrageous behavior in Durham, NC, of the black lady climbing a ladder to place a lanyard around a Civil War soldier’s memorial. The crowd had no permit, no permission to even be there, much less the authority to pull down the statue, however offensive they all of the sudden thought it to be.

I say all of the sudden, because a lot of these statues have been on display for a century or so, and no one said boo. Not blacks or whites – left or right. Now we’re expected to believe that a mass consciousness awakening has spontaneously occurred like so many newborn puppies opening their eyes for the first time. read more

The radar at the heart of US Army’s Patriot missile system is getting a bit long in the tooth, so Lockheed Martin has announced the debut of its next-generation air and missile defense radar demonstrator. The 360⁰ capable Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Radar for Engagement and Surveillance (ARES) will be unveiled to the public at the 2017 Space & Missile Defense Symposium in Huntsville, Alabama. read more
