Man Explains why He’s Walking Away from the Left

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

A rather remarkable thing has begun in America. It’s an awakening of sorts. Check that. It’s not “of sorts.” It is an absolute awakening. It’s been dubbed as #Walkaway.

As most know, I, the Common Constitutionalist, was not, am not, and will never be an “Ever-Trumper.” I wholeheartedly support the president when I believe he is right and constitutional on policy, and call him out when he strays. As the saying goes: “It’s not personal – it’s just business.” Being a Never-Trumper or Ever-Trumper is just silly and irrational.

But thank heavens for president Trump and the many things he has accomplished thus far. Most have been well publicized as good or evil, but known to most nonetheless. And most leftist campaigns against him have been equally well publicized.

However, one campaign may not – at least not yet. It’s called the #Walkaway movement, and I don’t think it would have begun without Trump being elected.

Up until this last presidential election, Ronald Reagan was the most hated Republican president. Reagan was labeled as the amiable dunce by the left, and to be sure, was hated by them. But as much as they disliked Reagan’s policies, the left didn’t suffer from Reagan Derangement Syndrome. Nor did they of either George Bush. read more

Back in 2014, DARPA announced the launch of its Ground X-Vehicle Technology (GXV-T) program, an initiative designed to break through a single paradigm that has been weighing the military down in ground combat. That paradigm is the ever-escalating vendetta between tanks and anti-tank guns. read more

Joke of the Day

A man was driving through west Texas one Spring evening. The road was deserted and he had not seen a soul for what seemed like hours. Suddenly his car started to cough and splutter and the engine slowly died away, leaving him sitting on the side of the road in total silence.

He popped the hood and looked to see if there was anything that he could do to get it going again. Unfortunately, he had a limited knowledge of cars, so all he could do was look at the engine.

Feeling despondent as he stood looking at the gradually fading light of his flashlight, he cursed that he had not put in new batteries like he had promised himself. read more

It’s Not July 4th, It’s Independence Day

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

On July 2, 1776, George Washington sent general orders to his officers explaining the war effort:

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them.

The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us no choice but a brave resistance, or the most abject submission; this is all we can expect. We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die. Our own Country’s Honor all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. read more

Independence Day Presidential Passings Marked by Divine Providence

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

There were five Founding Fathers who became president. Some would say that no – in fact there were six. What about John Quincy Adams? Was he not a founder? No – no he wasn’t. He was the son of second President John Adams, but was only a child of the Revolution.

The five, in order, where of course George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe.

It was Divine Providence that brought all these great men together at this exact place and this exact time in history. It was through acts of Divine Providence that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were crafted and signed. It was Divine Providence that assisted in the founding of our nation. And it was Divine Providence that God put his final stamp on the founding of the United States, with the passing of three of the five Founder Presidents on the day of America’s declared Independence. And, save for just six days, it could have been four. Actually, I suppose, it wouldn’t be a stretch to really say it was four. read more

The THOR prototype can transition from hover to fixed-wing cruise mode by rotating its wings into alignment

Conventional multicopter drones are excellent at hovering and VTOL, but they can’t cover long distances as efficiently as fixed-wing aircraft. A team of students from the Singapore University of Technology and Design is trying to get the best of both worlds with the Transformable HOvering Rotorcraft (THOR). read more

The Lies of Immigration Part 2

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

The infamous “catch and release” has worn out its welcome. It was never intended to get immigration under control, but rather to increase the number of illegal aliens in our local areas and allow progressive socialist States to add to their voter rolls. It doesn’t matter that the Constitution does not give them the right to vote. Like Obama, they will ignore it until they get enough illegal votes to scrap it.

And the continual violations of the Mexican government are an obstacle to the immigration policies that are required. They don’t want these people in Mexico, and it is effortless to push them through to our country. Mexico does nothing to stop the flow of these illegals from their southern border to the American frontier, passing through the child traffickers, drug dealers, and gang members. And yet their government speaks with a superior air about how these people should be treated. The bottom line is if you are not keeping these people in your country don’t let them pass through. Refugees, which is what Mexico calls these people, are to be according to the UN, accepted by the first free country they arrive at, which would be Mexico. So most Americans feel, as do I, that if you can’t be an asset in fixing this problem then just SHUT UP. The only alternative is to tax all remittances going to Mexico from the US and the complete shutdown of NAFTA.

Of the many organizations pushing for the defunding of ICE, many are organized and funded by George Soros, the financial head of the anarchy taking place in our country, and the foundational head of the mainstream media who walk in lockstep with his wishes. read more
