So Labor Day is Not a Full-Blown Communist Holiday

From: National Review

Red Monday

There isn’t much good to say about Labor Day, except maybe that it could be worse — it could be on May 1, which would make it a full-on Communist holiday instead of a merely crypto-Communist one. For that we can thank Grover Cleveland, the last pretty-good Democrat (seriously: gold standard, anti-tariff, vetoed twice as many bills as all of his predecessors combined — Rand Paul is a fan), who pushed for the creation of a labor festival in September as cultural competition to the international workers’ celebration in May, sort of the reverse of the strategy of the early Church fathers’ choosing the dates of heathen festivals for the new Christian holidays.

So, from the two out of three working-age Americans who are gainfully employed, a round of applause for President Cleveland. But crypto-Communist holidays are not so great, either.

Labor Day, like Obamacare and much else that is distasteful about American public life today, is a product of American liberals’ desire to be Canadians. The ’Nucks started celebrating labor on the first Monday in September in the 1880s; this holiday grew out of a parade celebrating a typographical workers’ strike in 1872. Soon, U.S. labor bosses, especially the Marxist Central Labor Union, wanted a holiday of their own. read more

Podcast – The Fad of Environmentalism Must be Waning

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

There’s an article posted on Campus Reform.org entitled, “Prof touts ‘ecosexuality’ as ‘environmental activist strategy’”

It’s the latest attempt at trying desperately to keep people engaged in the green movement.

So the left’s new attempt is the invention of romancing the trees.

McCain was a Tale of Two Men

First I’d like to pay tribute to the Navy Hero. Yep – John McCain was a war hero. Not because he was shot down. That happened to many pilots during the Vietnam non-war war. It’s what happened after.

McCain was captured, then offered release by the North Vietnamese and allowed to go home. Like few others might, he refused and stayed voluntarily so as to not abandon his men, knowing full well the torture that he would be in for. He paid dearly for his decision, which adversely affected him for the rest of his life. And given the choice, I believe that Naval Officer McCain would have done it all over again for the sake of his men.

If that ain’t heroism – there is no such thing.

But why would the left, who hates the military, be so enamored with McCain?

Well, it sure couldn’t be that he was the poster boy Never-Trumper? Naw – that couldn’t be it. read more

Does Ron DeSantis Really Deserve Such Condemnation?

Have you ever given a speech or even just been talking to someone, and all the sudden become tongue-tied? So much so that you end up mixing two words together or even two phrases? Well, in my opinion, that’s what Republican Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis did, when he uttered the now infamous, “Monkey This Up.” It’s obvious, to me at least, that he combined “monkey around” and “muck this up,” but you be the judge whether or not he is a white nationalist, racist, colonialist, or just a guy who got tongue-tied.

from the Blaze:

GOP nominee Ron DeSantis said ‘monkey this up’ and the left went berserk. You already know why. read more

A new patent from IBM could bring new meaning to instant coffee. The patent describes a drone that could detect when a person is tiring and fly over with a cup of coffee on demand—so no need to worry if yours is the one street corner without a Starbucks.

In its patent, IBM imagines a drone, or unmanned aerial vehicle, flying over a group of people and: read more

Cultural Appropriation is Evidently not Flattering

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Unless you are a democrat trying to beat a conservative Republican in a Senate race.

It’s said that “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” That is, to imitate someone is to pay the person a genuine compliment.

Take for example the modern day British Royal Family and in particular, the lovely Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton – wife of Prince William. Ever since her engagement to Wills, she’s been the envy of England and the Western World.

Her hair, her clothing, shoes and jewelry – everything she wears becomes an instant classic and is sought by her female fan base. It seems not five minutes after she is seen in something new, fashionistas are searching the web for knockoffs. Throngs of women want to look and dress like Kate.

And last I checked, she doesn’t seem the least bit upset by it.

However for many, particularly leftist minorities, such imitation is not considered flattering, but cultural appropriation.

Wikipedia defines cultural appropriation as, “the adoption of elements of a minority culture by members of the dominant culture. It is distinguished from an equal cultural exchange due to an imbalance of power, often as a byproduct of colonialism and oppression.” read more

Bridezilla Asks Guests to Pay to Attend Wedding

And here I thought Canadians were such nice people.

from the Daily Mail:

A disgruntled bride-to-be has revealed she was forced to cancel her extravagant ‘fairytale’ wedding after her guests refused to pay $CAD 1,500 each to attend.

The Canadian bride, who is known only as ‘Susan’, was due to tie the knot with her childhood sweetheart in a lavish $CAD 60,000 ($46,020) wedding.

But the couple decided to call off the ceremony just four days before exchanging their vows after they struggled to foot the bill.

Taking to Facebook to explain their decision, the furious mother-of-one blamed her family and friends for the breakdown of her relationship as she vented her frustration in a lengthy post. read more

Profiles in Treason – Bruce and Nellie Ohr

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

The latest emails and memos uncovered shows clearly that Fusion GPS, hired by Hillary Clinton and the DNC in an attempt to destroy the Trump candidacy, was assisted by the FBI, the DOJ and other intelligence agencies of the Obama administration.

Some of the notes are from Associate Deputy District Attorney Bruce Ohr, whose contact was Deputy AG Sally Yates.

Bruce Ohr was demoted four times since the investigation began, at least twice for failing to disclose his involvement with figures associated with the unverified dossier from Fusion GPS. Sally Yates was fired for insubordination and refusing to implement a legal order from the President. Both are members of the Deep State resistance doing everything they can to usurp the power of President Trump.

One of those who was hidden by the Media and the agencies of our government was Bruce Ohr. Seldom has his name and that of his wife, Nellie, been mentioned in the investigation of Russian collusion, but the Ohrs have been working on bringing President Trump and his administration down rather than working for the country. read more
