Podcast – Illegals Get Free College

Today I discuss two articles from the College Fix which explain how both DePaul and Emory Universities are developing programs to allow illegal aliens to attend the schools for free, or at least at drastically reduced levels. And the fun and fair part is that the rest of the student body at DePaul will have to pay additional fees to allow it. Isn’t that great.

So if you’re an American citizen, or even a legal international student you will be expected to pay extra – on top of the skyrocketing tuition you already pay. But that’s fair, because as I explain, it’s every illegal’s right to a free college education. read more

Congress Should Demand a Registry of Nationally Approved Words

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

A naughty word can get you in deep do-do these days. It may even get you banned for life. Even if there is no proof that you uttered it.

Oh, I’m not speaking of George Carlin’s famous 1972 skit, “The Seven words you can never say on Television.” Those, by today’s ever-devolving standards, are relative tame, and from I’ve heard, at least five have made it into many an Americans’ everyday vernacular.

No, I’m talking about really offensive words and phrases. Words like the other ‘F’ word – as in f*g, rhymes with gag. Or the ‘G’ word – as in g*y – rhymes with hay. I guess we’re allowed to say that. But beware to use it only to express something positive, for telling a classmate that their outfit looks “so gay” can and will get you suspended. Context is key.

And then there is the granddaddy of them all – the ‘N’ word. As we know, this is an especially caustic term. And I agree. It’s an awful word, which should never be used – by anyone. But yet it is – and quite often. It’s quite common to hear one black man use the ‘N’ word when speaking to another black man. So common has it become, that it seems almost requisite to use the term in rap and hip-hop music, videos and film. I guess the use of it is supposed to make the user feel like a bad mo-fo, and not a woefully ignorant moron.

But it’s just a word, like the millions of others we use. That may be, but don’t get caught being white and using the ‘N’ word. That one word, as well as other terms to describe blacks derogatorily can get you thrown out of a sports stadium and banned for life. read more

Humans in America Long Before First Thought

A controversial find could rewrite the history of humans in North America.

Archaeologists claim to have found evidence an unknown species of human was living on the continent as early as 130,000 years ago – 115,000 years earlier than previously thought.

Researchers discovered the butchered remains of an enormous mastodon in San Diego, with evidence of chips and fractures made by early humans – but they admit they don’t know if they were Homo sapiens, Homo erectus, Neanderthals, or something else.

The findings could dramatically revise the timeline for when humans first reached North America, although many researchers are sceptical of the find, claiming there are issues with the dating technique used and ‘many questions’ over the research.

No Mr. President – Not Even You Can Create Peace

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Oh come on! Now you’re going to solve the Israeli/Palestinian dispute? Really?

I have to say that I’ve really tried my darndest to support the President. I’ve congratulated him on his accomplishments and have even held back (well mostly) at blasting him when he appears to fail. Mostly because a lot of his supposed failings come from having to compromise with the lazy, shiftless Republican cowards in Congress.

But foreign policy is a President’s purview. Unlike the domestic side, the President is to be the tip of the spear when dealing with other nations. So far Trump has done a pretty good job, refriending Israel, meeting with the Chinese leader and taking a much harder line on Syria, Russia and North Korea.

But then he goes and invites Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to the White House. Like Abbas is some sort of real President. That’s a hot one. He’s simply the latest Palestinian head terror facilitator. In that respect, he’s no different than was Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who paid terrorists and their families.

In 2002, Fox News reported, “In Tulkarm, one of the poorest towns on the West Bank, a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council handed out the checks [totaling $25,000 each] from Saddam. read more

Knightscope Security Robot

At just 5ft, they may not seem like the most imposing security guards, but they could soon be patrolling shopping centers around the world.

The Knightscope K5 robots are the creation of a Silicon Valley startup firm and have been specially designed for fighting crime.

And the company says it has just signed a deal which will see the droids roll out across 16 cities.

Republicans Lead with the Mantra – Whatever is Easiest

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Do not be fooled by the Republican or White House spin that this budget agreement is anything but a total retreat and surrender to the MINORITY party – the Democrats. But hey – fighting is hard. It’s just easier to capitulate.

I was originally going to express it as a Republican give-away – but it isn’t. You see – you have to first possess something in order to give it away – like one’s principle or integrity. The Republicans possess neither.

On his radio show, an angry Mark Levin exclaimed that the Dems passed all of ObamaCare with a simply majority under reconciliation. Mark rhetorically asked how it is that Democrats seem to always know how to play the rules in the House and Senate – use parliamentary rules and procedures to advance their agenda – to get things done, and the Republicans don’t seem to. Is the GOP just not as smart as Schumer, Pelosi and the rest of the Mensa honorees in the Democrat Party?

Of course not. The Democrats, for the most part, are believers. No – they don’t really believe in standing up and fighting for the less fortunate. They believe in the leftist ideal of big government authoritarian control and spending. In other words, they are statists. Of course they would never describe it as such, but this is what it boils down to.

They seem to always get they want because they don’t compromise. And even if they appear to compromise, as in giving the President an additional $15 billion in defense spending and unpinning it from domestic matching, it’s barely a compromise. read more

Want to See Betrayal? – Here It Is

from Conservative Review:

During the 2014 elections in my home state of Maryland, there were problems with some of the ballot machines, whereby many ballots cast for Republicans “coincidentally” were automatically rendered as Democrat ballots. With the omnibus deal forged at 2 a.m. last night in Congress, this is essentially what has happened on a national level.

People voted for a revolution – to drain the swamp – and out popped a Democrat budget. In fact, one would be hard pressed to find anything different about this budget from the one we would have gotten if Hillary had been elected. read more

Pools Made From Shipping Containers

Shipping containers are by nature rather easy to move around, and more and more we are seeing clever ideas around how their strengths can be put to use. The latest example of this is a little something called a Modpool, a relocatable above-ground swimming pool that can be installed within minutes of delivery. read more

Taxpayers Lose Again with the Stop-Gap Spending Bill

Shut It Down: Republicans Chicken Out Yet Again

from The American Spectator:

There was a reason that FDR opposed the unionization of public sector workers. Rather than the natural negotiation tension between a company owner and an employee in which the owner is trying to conserve his capital while the employee across the table tries to get as much as he can, when a politician or bureaucrat is negotiating with a public sector union, they’re both on the same side of the table, spending taxpayers’ money, usually without a taxpayer representative anywhere nearby. It’s a recipe for fiscal disaster and perhaps national economic suicide.

The same is true, as proved this weekend, when Republicans and Democrats, having colluded to put off legislation needed to “keep the government open” until the waning days of existing federal spending authority, crafted a “deal” in which taxpayers are utterly betrayed. Government by emergency is never good for the taxpayer, and this emergency was, as so many are, a product of bipartisan conspiracy. read more

WND Exclusive – Leftist Cannibals Eat Their Own Over Warming

Note: On its 20th anniversary this week, I’d like to thank WND for being a platform for the reasonable in a sea of the irrational and to thank its editors for allowing me a voice.

I grew up being taught, and have subsequently tried to instill in my kids, that you don’t take pleasure in the misery of others – that it is just not charitable.

While this is a great sentiment, and I think we all (well, most all) try to live by this basic rule, occasionally it belies our baser human instincts. Sometimes you just can’t help but crack a smile or feel a warped sense of satisfaction when someone “gets their comeuppance,” as it were.

Regardless of your feelings regarding President Trump, if you are conservative, you, like me, felt elated that Hillary Clinton not only lost, but did so in humiliating fashion. We should merely be satisfied that she lost and not revel in her anguish. But I did, and admit it – you did also.

I know it’s wrong, but there is little we conservatives enjoy more than witnessing the crack-up of leftists. And even more satisfying is when they turn on there own, which seems to be happening more and more. read more
