Trump Derangement is Metastasizing

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is alive, not well, getting worse, and would not be allowed anywhere, or at any other time in otherwise polite society. As bad as Obama was, I can’t think of an incident where someone was attacked or even berated for merely voting for the guy.

TDS started out rather like a joke or comic meme, as a way of describing commentators, angry at the result of the 2016 Presidential election. And they appeared not to be upset that Hillary didn’t win – for no one, not even her supporters really like Hillary. She just happened to be the next one up – the most current leftist in which to maintain the statist status quo. It was that and she was not Trump. And as we know and were witness to, their dreams were shattered on that November night, in favor of the billionaire Neanderthal.

But TDS and radical leftism is metastasizing. By this I mean that it is spreading from the theoretical, to being a strictly verbal or gestural expression, to now, physical manifestation. Those afflicted, like addicts, can no longer control their baser impulses. read more

1,000-Horsepower Gravity Suit

For those keeping up with the fledgeling personal jet flight sector, there’s really three people to keep an eye on, and they each neatly fit a superhero model. Australia’s David Mayman of Jetpack Aviation plays Buck Rodgers, with his awesome JB-series jetpacks well and truly operational. France’s Franky Zapata is the Green Goblin, surfing the air on his extraordinary Flyboard Air jetboard. And Britain’s Richard Browning gets the Iron Man role, with a jet suit that features thrusters on his arms and back. read more

Rubio Points Out Obama was Most Devisive

from the Blaze:

After Obama blames Trump and GOP for dividing America, Marco Rubio hits Obama with history lesson

In one of his biggest post-White House speeches, former President Barack Obama on Friday told America that President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress have cultivated a divided America since he left office last January.

In response, Obama urged unity. But more significantly, he urged Americans to vote for Democrats in November as a check on the Trump administration’s “abuses of power.”

“In two months we have the chance, not the certainty, but the chance to restore some semblance of sanity to our politics. There is actually only one check on bad policy and abuses of power, and that’s you and your vote,” Obama said. read more

WND Exclusive – Why’s the Right Taking ‘Insider’ Op-Ed Seriously?

We all know of the Big Bang Theory, where in an instant the universe exploded into life and is apparently ever-expanding.

Well, with the confluence of the smash hit book by Bob Woodward and the anonymous White House insider memo hitting at virtually the same time, the left and Never-Trumpers are hoping that this is the ever-expanding political Big Bang that will finally bring down Trump.

I say smash hit book because whether Woodward’s book (release date – Sept. 11, 2018) is great or not, rest assured it will be a runaway best-seller. They will make sure of that.

However, in recent years the Big Bang Theory has been called into question. Did it actually happen, and is the universe really expanding? That’s above my pay-grade, as it were. read more

Podcast – It’s a Social Justice Weekend

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yes, it’s an all social justice podcast, as I discuss Nike’s decision to promote Colin Kaepernick and his bogus “Stand for Something” platform. I explain that while this may seem like a bad business decision, it really isn’t. Nike understands its target audience, and it isn’t those guys burning their shoes.

In part two of social justice weekend, I discuss the reboot of the `90s television series, Party of Five. But this time around, it’s decidedly NOT all-American. What a surprise, that a Disney channel would promote illegal immigration. read more

Another Failure of California Government – Voter Registration

from Conservative Tribune:

After Libs Help Them Avoid Audit, California DMV Finds 23,000 Bad Voter Registrations

“Trust us, we’re with the government.” If there were ever a time to be leery of that promise, it’s now … and if there were ever a place, it would almost certainly be in big-government California.

The west coast state — which has gone Democrat in every presidential election since the Reagan era — seems to be a test-bed for leftist policies, but the results of that liberalism ought to be a cautionary tale.

Recently, California became the state with the highest poverty rate in the entire country, while deep blue cities like San Francisco are struggling with rampant homelessness and public health crises. read more

Over 65 million years ago, an asteroid some 10 km (6 mi) wide crashed into the Earth and wiped out the dinosaurs. Strangely, the legacy of this huge space rock could include a treatment for cancer after scientists from the UK and China demonstrated that iridium – a rare metal delivered to Earth by the asteroid – can be enlisted to kill cancer without harming healthy cells. read more
