Video Podcast – After the Florida Shooting Comes the Borg – the Pennsylvania Election

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The aftermath of the Florida school shooting reveals the collective mindset of the left. In today’s podcast I liken them to the Borg collective, popularized in the series, Star Trek, The Next Generation.

I reveal the remarkable similarities of today’s radical leftists to the fictional Borg, where everyone thinks and acts the same – working in lock step to build a Utopian society.

I also discuss the winner (if it holds up) of the Pennsylvania special congressional election, Conor Lamb, who ran as a conservative, but will discover in short order, that he must become part of the leftist Washington collective to survive. read more

Lamb Campaigned as a Republican – When Will Dems Start Attacking Him

from IBD:

So, When Will Democrats Start Brutally Attacking Gun-Loving Conor Lamb?

While viciously attacking Republicans for opposing gun control, Democrats are celebrating the victory of gun-loving Conor Lamb in the Pennsylvania special election. What would those student gun control protestors say if they knew about that?

What has barely been mentioned over the past few weeks, however, is the fact that Lamb ran as a something of a poster boy for the NRA.

One of Lamb’s campaign ads, for example, showed him firing a scary looking assault weapon while the voice over touted his Marine background and said he “still loves to shoot.” read more

WND Exclusive: Battling the Mississippi Swamp

Republican Chris McDaniel of Mississippi is attempting to take another bite out the apple, so to speak. This

Chris McDaniel

time he is trying to unseat the incumbent U.S. Senator and establishment hack, Roger Wicker. The date of the Republican primary is June 5.

However, this election should be unnecessary and should never be taking place. If all were right in the world, Chris McDaniel would already be one of Mississippi’s two senators. I’ll get to that in a bit.

That being said – what is the first thing we should do regarding this election? That’s right – see what kind of senator Wicker has been over the 11 years he’s held the office. For this we check out Wicker’s Liberty Score,which tracks the number and percentage of conservative vs. liberal votes he has cast and derives an overall letter grade from them. read more

Dems Built in Excuse for Possible Election Loss

from IBD:

Dems Get Ready To Blame Russia If They Don’t Take The House In November

Democrats expect that fierce anti-Trump sentiment will sweep them into power in the House, if not the Senate, this November. If that fails to happen, they are already preparing their excuse: Russian meddling.

 Just as in 2016, Democrats — as well as various political pundits — are certain of victory.

“Democrats may have already won the House,” declared the news site Axios this week, citing four reasons the election was a lock. read more

Soros is Busy Buying District Attorneys

Leftist kingmaker George Soros appears to understand how America really works.

While we are all wrapped up in the next midterm political election, Soros is doing something a bit different. And he’s been doing it for a few years now, and having some success.

Soros figured out who really runs the nation – who really wields the power – and it’s not the political class. In fact it’s what we conservatives have warned of for as long as I can remember.

It’s the judicial class who runs America – from the black-robed oligarchs at the supreme Court all the way down to local judges and prosecutors.

And that is where Soros is concentrating his fire, as it were. He’s pouring money into otherwise inconsequential State and local District Attorney races. read more

When Reporting on Candidates – Let’s Just Stick to the Facts

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

I think we would (and should) all agree that honest and accurate reporting of any subject is important, especially when it comes to which candidate to vote for in the next election. Sensationalism is great at all, if you’re the Hollywood Insider.

What we don’t need is innuendo, exaggeration and damnation by implication or association. That’s just shoddy journalism. An example might be that candidate A’s sister-in-law’s cousin’s son was just indicted on racketeering charges, so just what does this tell us about candidate A, hmmm?

It doesn’t tell a darn thing, but it places that little sliver of doubt in the minds of less informed voters, so the yellow journalist did his or her job.

And such is it, in my opinion, concerning democrat candidate, Jason Crow who is competing for a House seat in Colorado. He is a partner at the Denver law firm Holland & Hart. Assuming he makes it through the democrat primary, he will face off against Republican incumbent, Representative Mike Coffman.

Now Republican Coffman isn’t exactly what I’d call a conservative. His CR Liberty Score is an ‘F,’ at 44%. However Coffman has voted for the tax cut bill, voted to ban abortions after 20 weeks, cut the EPA budget, and voted to defund sanctuary cities. So he’s not all bad, and would be a darn sight better than any democrat. read more

Stunning: California Dems Reject Feinstein for Reelection

from Zero Hedge:

In Unexpected Snub, California Democrats Refuse To Endorse Feinstein For Reelection

In a stunning – if not altogether unexpected – blow to long-time California Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, the California state Democratic Party opted not to endorse their own senior senator as she prepares to start campaigning to defend her seat in the 2018 midterms.

Delegates to the state party convention instead favored progressive state Senate leader Kevin de León, over Feinstein by a 54% to 37% margin, according to results, which were announced early Sunday. And while neither candidate reached the 60% threshold required to receive the party endorsement outright for 2018, de Leon’s camp claimed it as a profound victory. read more

Dems May Regret not Voting for Tax Cuts

from IBD:

GOP Tax Cuts Are Turning Out To Be A Disaster … For Democrats

Not long ago, Democrats expected that the GOP tax cuts would be a political disaster for Republicans, just like ObamaCare was for Democrats in 2010. How’s that prediction working out?

Writing in the Atlantic in December, longtime political reporter Ron Brownstein argued that “President Trump and congressional Republicans have just taken the same leap of faith that Democrats did when they passed the Affordable Care Act.”

He went on to note that after Democrats passed ObamaCare in early 2010 — despite strong public opposition — the backlash from voters “helped propel Republicans to the biggest midterm gain in the House for either party since 1938 and gave them a majority in the chamber they still haven’t relinquished.” read more

Democrats are Using Our Youth

The democrat anti-gun parade (figuratively and literally) is well under way. And this time they’re leaving no stone unturned. They’ve enlisted the help of children. Although it’s more like the democrats have gotten these young skulls full of mush (h/t Rush) hooked on anti-gun crack and are now pimping them out to the main-stream leftist media.

Yet they want us to believe that it was the children who organized all these anti-gun rallies, marches and protests, rented the upscale busses, etc., all by themselves. Sure they did. The children certainly have not been coached and brainwashed to come out and argue against guns and our constitutionally protected rights – and they are definitely NOT being exploited for leftist political gain.

And by the way, lest someone mistake my claims for being heartless – I’m not making light of this latest tragedy. It is a tragedy – a senseless one. It’s the left’s choreographed response that bothers me – how they can get children to do their bidding, and no one seems to have a problem with it.

But what the children who have bought this gun control load of crap don’t comprehend is that the lying dems don’t want to actually do anything. How can I say such a think? We’ve all heard the heart-tugging speeches and interviews. The dems are serious this time! read more

Video Podcast – The Shutdown – The Reality of Immigration – Democrat Infighting

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The dreaded government shutdown is upon us. Anyone notice? Not yet at least. But is the shutdown, that we well know is a mere slowdown, a real problem? Is it real or just imaginary? Is the angst everyone claims to be feeling over the shutdown psychosomatic – just a Pavlovian response?

Leftists in France are finding out first hand, the joys of being overrun with refugees and immigrants. Their quest for a truly diverse society that they so often claim to want is backfiring. The French are finding it difficult for their children to obtain a decent education, due to the sudden diverse nature of their schools.

The democrats may not have as easy a time in the mid-term elections as is being promoted by the left. Caustic infighting among the Hillary/Bernie factions continues to fracture the party. And it appears as if they will be hard-pressed to find common ground before November. Coupled with their hopeless lack of fundraising and it may be a recipe for disaster. read more
