Podcast – Deportation Sob Stories – Scary Firearms are Banned – Take Down that American Flag

Every week, the left will trot out poor illegal aliens who face deportation by that big meanie Trump. Last week was no different. The radical illegal immigrant advocates regale us with sob stories of how unfair the President is. I touch on a few of the latest tearjerkers.

The U.S. Fourth Circuit is making their own unconstitutional law, by stating that scary “exceptionally lethal weapons of war” are not protected by the Second Amendment – as opposed to weapons which are not lethal – I guess.

Is Obamacare Here to Stay

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

What’s the hold up!! Why do we have to wait to repeal Obamacare? Anyone with a brain can see that it is total disaster. Of course anyone with a brain knew from the beginning that it was expressly designed to be a total disaster – that the master plan, or scheme, was to have Obamacare, in it’s current form, fail, thus clearing the way to a single payer, full-blown, socialist healthcare system.

Those on the left knew. Pelosi knew – which is the reason she said “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it…” The architect, Jonathan Gruber, certainly knew, as he admitted they had to lie about it and hope that Americans were as dumb as he hoped they were.

Now that we can repeal it, the Republicans have attempted to change the narrative from repeal and replace to repair and fix. Well – we aren’t buying it.

“You spineless, gutless, timid politicians. (The Republicans) have all three. They have the White House, the Senate, and the House. What’s their excuse now?” Sean Hannity asked. He also echoed our sentiment that they are now proposing to, “repeal and repair the disastrous health care law.” read more

We Could Have Woolly Mammoths Soon

They became extinct thousands of years ago, but now scientists claim they are just two years away from bringing woolly mammoths back from the dead.

The shaggy beasts last wandered the tundra of Siberia before our human ancestors probably hunted them into extinction.

Now a project to bring back the mammoth said within two years the nearest possible thing to a mammoth could be created.

It would be a hybrid between an Asian elephant and a mammoth – perhaps you could call it a ‘mamephant’.

Whistleblowing by Design

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Well – it looks like it was all by design. Throughout his entire presidency, Obama and his most transparent administration of all time has had it out for whistleblowers.

In March, 2015, the Guardian posted an article stating that, “Since Barack Obama entered the White House in 2009, his government has waged a war against whistleblowers and official leakers. On his watch, there have been eight prosecutions under the 1917 Espionage Act – more than double those under all previous presidents combined.”

However, they also went on to explain that it’s not like Obama prosecuted all leakers. Those “leaks” from high-level officials like Leon Panetta, John Brennan or even New York Times reporter, David Sanger, were all given a pass.

Bottom line – if you were favored by Obama and the leak would make the President look good, no harm would come to you.

But then in January, a week prior to Trump’s inauguration, it seemed everything changed. The Washington Times reported that, “President Barack Obama— with about a week left in his presidency — has all of a sudden shown interest in protecting government whistleblowers and the inspector general community.” read more

Now There are 8 Continents

Scientists have identified a new continent to the east of Australia that they have named ‘Zealandia’.

At 4.9 million square kilometres (1.89 million-square-mile), Zealandia would be Earth’s eighth and smallest continent, if confirmed.

It is a region of mostly submerged land in the Pacific Ocean, and its coast may contain tens of billions of dollars worth of fossil fuels.

Prisoner Paid for Time Served at Gitmo

For years many of us right-wingers complained that former president Obama (that is nice to say – former) was soft on terrorism. We showed incredulity at the naïveté of the president for releasing prisoners from the Detention Facility at Guantanimo Bay, Cuba.

“Does he not realize that a good many of these ‘detainees’ will just end up right back on the battlefield, looking to kill Americans,?” we said. And for some that did indeed occur.

Yet we do, or did, have something going for us – something we can hang our hat on. We can at least say we’re not Great Britain. As ill-advised as Obama’s Gitmo policy was, his judgment was still not as bad as England’s former Prime Minister, Tony Blair.

In 1994, British citizen, Ronald Fiddler, converted to Islam and changed his name to Jamal Udeen al-Harith, writes the Daily Mail.

In 2002, al-Harith was discovered in Afghanistan. After American forces captured him, “he denied being a terrorist and claimed to have been taken prisoner by the Taliban after visiting the Middle East as part of a ‘religious holiday.’” That’s where I always take my “religious holidays.” read more

My Weekly WND Exclusive – Impose Income Tax — on Robots?

Back in 2015, the Fiscal Times wrote an article describing a fear Bill Gates had. “He may be one of the world’s pivotal computing pioneers, mentioned in the same exuberantly geeky breath as Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, and Tim Berners-Lee. His technological exploits may have earned him over $80 billion, making him the world’s richest man. Yet even Bill Gates is somewhat concerned about the potentially destructive power of technology.”

Point of order. Some claim Gates is no longer the richest. That moniker goes to a Spaniard Amancio Ortega, the owner of the Zara retail chain.

In the article, Gates describes his fear, like Elon Musk, of what they are calling superintelligences – “computers with cognitive and computational abilities that far surpass those of humanity.” read more

Leftist Economist Paul Krugman is Like the Cleveland Browns

Paul Krugman – Biggest Loser

My apologies to all you Browns fans.

For regular readers, you know I use a lot of football analogies. Well – here’s another.

Say you get permission from the NFL to create an expansion team – a brand new professional football franchise.

You, the owner, do your due diligence and hire who you feel is the best available Coach and General Manager.

The League office encourages other teams to aid your new franchise, lending their expertise and advice on various issues regarding football operations, free agency, the draft, etc.

One day you sit down with your new General Manager and Coach and start making calls to other teams for guidance. So whom do you call? And who do you not?

If you’re smart, you call the proven winners – starting with the New England Patriots (of course), then move on to the Steelers, Broncos, Packers, Cowboys and Giants. You seek out the proven winners – franchises that show up in the playoffs either every year, or at least most years.

Who you don’t call is the Cleveland Browns, the Buffalo Bills, or Jacksonville Jaguars. No offence, but why would you or anyone take advice on building a winning franchise from teams that rarely, if ever, win. read more
