Video Podcast – Thank You for Flying ICE Air

Just how are illegal immigrants deported anyway? It turns out there a few ways. One is to hoof-it back across the border from whence they came. Another is a chartered bus that our benevolent federal government provides, and a third is by aircraft.

They call it ICE-Air, owing to the fact that the aircraft is provided by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. They charter many flights a year to ferry illegals back to their homeland where they belong – because they certainly don’t belong here in America.

Today I discuss ICE-Air, how it works and maybe an idea or two on improving the system of deportation. read more

More Questions than Answers in Las Vegas

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

What is going on in Las Vegas? The timeline of incidents leading up to the shooting keep changing – and where is the hero hotel security guard, Jesus Campos?

The next logical question would then be – are the two connected somehow?

Earlier this week, Las Vegas police issued a timeline of events which stated that security guard Campos was shot a full six minutes before the shooter Paddock began firing on the crowd below.

The now famous Las Vegas Sheriff, Joe Lombardo, also corrected the record of those injured. He said Friday, “that the number of injuries related to the Oct. 1 massacre had increased, rising to 546. Of that number, he said, 45 were still hospitalized, some in critical condition,” writes the Chicago Tribune.

Lombardo also confirmed that police do believe Paddock shot at large aviation fuel storage tanks. Igniting the tanks, which didn’t and probably couldn’t have happened, may have had a two-fold effect – furthering the carnage and more easily providing for an escape. read more

MS-13 Charged with Murder in Maryland

from Breitbart:

Five illegal aliens who are part of the MS-13 gang were charged in connection with the brutal murder of a Maryland woman who was beaten to death and buried in June and unearthed in September.

Maryland authorities discovered the body of 21-year-old Jenni B, Rivera in a shallow grave on the outskirts of Annapolis, the Baltimore Sun reported. The victim was allegedly lured to her death and then beaten by Ervin Figueroa, Brenda Argueta, Ronald Mendez Sosa, Darvin Guerra-Zacarias, and Francisco Ramirez-Pena, all five members of the MS-13 who have immigration detainers on them. Each had varying degrees of participation with two carrying out the actual murder.  read more

Just Let the NLRB Run the NFL

Recall that President Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners,” wondered the president, “when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now, out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’”

I said that no owner would have the stones to stand up to political correctness like that. I thought they’d be too cowardly to do it, even though at least a few are probably thinking it.

Well, I was wrong and Trump was right. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones came out and said practically that. He said earlier this week if a player disrespects the flag and national anthem by not standing, then the player will not play.

And sure enough, fans loved it. Even I, a Jerry Jones hater, loved it. But the players and the Players Union were not quite as fond of the Cowboys owner’s exhortation.

“Local 100 of the United Labor Unions filed a complaint against the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday, alleging owner and general manager Jerry Jones has violated the National Labor Relations Act by threatening players if they choose not to stand for the national anthem,” writes ESPN. read more

Weapon Wednesday – Well – Not Really

As useful as they are for amputees, prosthetic legs aren’t the most comfortable things to wear. With the whole body pressing down on the point of contact, they can be painful, awkward to walk with and cause infections. Now scientists from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) have developed a more comfortable and “smart” prosthetic that can be attached and detached at will, and monitored for infection and stress with an array of sensors. read more

Dove Finds Mixing Business and Race Dangerous

On April 22, 1800, Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to William Hamilton. Within the letter was the famous quote: “I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. During the whole of the last war, which was trying enough, I never deserted a friend because he had taken an opposite side…”

The quote referred to Jefferson’s travel to Philadelphia to take the Vice Presidential oath of office on March 4, 1797. He said that many had come by to congratulate him – but many friends and acquaintances did not, owing only to political differences.

Yet as bad as Jefferson thought it was then, it is far worse today. These days, differences in religion and political views can get one hurt or worse. And it’s not just individuals. Sports teams and businesses are finding out that it’s better to steer clear of the caustic mix of business with politics.

However some corporations are wading in, trying mostly to curry favor with the socially progressive left. They are attempting to capitalize on what is today thought to be trendy. But they are discovering how dangerous it can be from both sides of the political spectrum.

Target stores took a major hit from the right when they announced their transgender bathroom and dressing room policy. And now Unilever, the makers of Dove products, are seeing a socially-conscious ad campaign backfire big time with leftists. read more

Chef Jamie Oliver’s New Land Rover

When we think of Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations, we think extra-cushy leather interiors, upmarket trim and personalized paint jobs. We definitely don’t think of a rolling kitchen fit to prepare gourmet meals on the road. But that’s the mission celebrity chef Jamie Oliver laid out for the SVO team. Land Rover responded by building Oliver an extraordinary Discovery that slow-cooks under the hood, churns butter and makes ice cream in special wheel drums, slow-turns a rotisserie out front, makes toast in the center console and has numerous other culinary tricks up its sleeve. Forget the drive-through restaurant – this is the driving restaurant kitchen. read more

WND Exclusive – The left’s despicable use of emotion post-Vegas

In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, it took only a matter of hours before the left sought to divide us, howling for gun control. But as we’ve seen many times before, they don’t care how it sounds or looks. They don’t care how caustic their rhetoric is. It’s all and only about advancing the agenda.

The overarching agenda of the progressive left, since its rise to prominence in the early 20th century, was/is to chip away at and eventually supplant the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence with their version of America. And they will seize any opportunity do so, regardless of how tasteless. read more
