Is the Pope, like Barack, Trying to Change Tradition and History?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

What would you think if Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and former President Jimmy Carter all came out and proclaimed their love for Ted Cruz? Would you think – Wow – three out-of-control leftists love Ted Cruz. Maybe they’ve seen the light? That’s great news! They must’ve seen the error of their ways and come over to our side.

Of course not! These three are committed leftists. What you should be thinking is what the heck happened to the poster boy of conservatism, Cruz.

So when we see Jane Fonda, Jim Carrey, Bill Maher, Russell Crowe and John Stewart tweeting that you, “Gotta love new Pope – He cares about the poor – Unlike U.S. Congress…,” or, “He’s changing the tone of the way you regard the Pope,” or, “That’s it – I’m converting – I love this guy,” you have to know these people are not going to convert to Catholicism. We also must conclude there is something not quite right (literally) with Pope Francis.

None of these lefties have seen the light and suddenly found religion, so it leaves us with but one sad conclusion. The Pope is no conservative – and I don’t mean politically.

Yet we can’t put politics aside when the leader of the Catholic Church is a redistributionist and a global warming nut. I’m sorry to all you Catholics, but facts are facts. I know this will not win me many friends, but you have to admit – there is something not quite right.

Now, not being a Catholic, I cannot speak to the tenets of the religion, but it certainly appears to me that Pope Francis is treating Catholic traditions and doctrine the way Obama treats our Constitution and laws. He appears to just be making wholesale changes to centuries of tradition. To what end, I do not know. read more

The University of Intolerance

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Imagine you are a “Black Lives Matter” student organizer at a university. Let’s just pick any college – say – Boise State University in Idaho. And just say you are organizing a two day “Black Lives Matter” event and wish to get the word out to other students and faculty.

You contact the student newspaper, the Arbiter,  to advertise the event. You’re not looking for a handout – you’re willing to buy ad space, but the school paper refuses to sell the ad space to promote the “Black Lives Matter” event. They claim the content is not acceptable.

Now does anyone think we wouldn’t hear about this on every national news broadcast, every morning program, the View, etc.? There would be such an outcry; you would think someone had been murdered.

But we didn’t hear about this, because I made it up, but it would be the same scenario if it were regarding same-sex marriage or an LGBTQIA, E-I-E-I-O event. The outrage over the intolerance of the school paper and the small minded bigoted student editors would be cacophonous!

There would be no where you could go without hearing the cries of hatred and prejudice. read more

Podcast – Christian Climate Alarmists Sign On With Obama – Worlds Most Unlucky Island

In this episode I discuss a crazy world where Evangelical Christian leaders endorse Obama and his new EPA Clean Power Plan to combat the fake scourge of man caused climate change that they are now calling a Climate Challenge. I also discuss La Reunion Island, where the MH370 aircraft wreckage has been found and why you may not wish to go there. read more

Obama’s Blackmail Africa Tour

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So Obama is off to Africa to once again visit his homeland – the place of his birth (just kidding). I’m sure he will be speechifying on a variety of useless topics like how destitute nations of Africa must combat global warming. I’m sure that is high on the list of priorities for war-torn countries ravaged by terrorism and can’t, in some cases, even feed their own people.

Another hot topic of which Obama, a recent convert, will preach about is the radical homosexual agenda. But unlike the conflict averse Americans and weenie progressive Europeans, the nations of Africa are likely to tell Obama to shove it.

On the whole, blacks most everywhere are against same-sex marriage. In America, where even in ultra-liberal California, blacks, who voted for Obama almost exclusively in 2008, did not support same-sex marriage. 8 out of 10 blacks supported the now famous Proposition 8. No ethnic group rejected sanctioning same-sex marriage as strongly as did blacks. read more

Same-Sex Marriage Isn’t All That

by: the Common Constitutionalist

At this point, most of the arguments both for and against same-sex marriage have been set forth. Many of us conservatives hold to the view that government should not be involved in marriage in the first place – yet here we are.

I’ve also heard the same refrain from practically everyone on the right, me included at times. The defeatist attitude of “we can’t put the genie back in the bottle,” or “what can we do now – it’s over, now that the Supreme Court has ruled.” And the ever popular: “it’s now the law of the land.”

But evidently, that’s not how the left viewed it, for marriage between a man and woman has been the convention and the de facto “law of the land” literally forever. That didn’t stop them and shouldn’t stop us.

Although the mainstream media loves to say that polls show the American people favor same-sex marriage, I don’t buy that for a minute. I know how polls are so easily manipulated to achieve a desired result. If it was so popular, why did states refused to put it on so many ballots?

In fact 31 states voted in favor of a constitutional amendment or state referendum defining marriage between a man and a woman or, like Hawaii, at the very least, limited marriage to one each of the opposite sex, which is the same thing, I guess.

Virtually every state that put the question up for a vote of the actual voters, voted against same-sex marriage. So there is no great groundswell of support for it and never has been. read more

A New FHA – The Federal Hiring Administration

by: the Common Constitutionalist

You may have heard about the 8-1 Supreme Court decision regarding a discrimination lawsuit brought by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on behalf of Samantha Elauf against Abercrombie and Fitch stores.

Ms. Elauf is a Muslim who wears a Hijab, a black headscarf, which A & F said would clash with the companies “Look Policy,” and thus did not hire her.

In 2013 the retailer confirmed to Business Insider  that it doesn’t sell black clothing and “discourages its employees from wearing black.” It’s evidently well-known throughout A & F that CEO Michael Jeffries doesn’t care for black.

“Mike hates the color, and so we’re not supposed to wear it at work,” an anonymous employee told Business Insider.

A statement provided by the company read: “Abercrombie & Fitch does not sell black clothing and discourages wearing it at our home office and in our stores, because we are a casual lifestyle brand and feel black clothing is formal. We have nothing against black clothing and feel it is perfectly appropriate for things like tuxedos.”

Yesterday, the New York Times  reported that “Justice Scalia, writing for seven justices, said Ms. Elauf did not have to make a specific request for a religious accommodation to obtain relief under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits religious discrimination in hiring.” read more

Inverted Flag Means We Are in Distress

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Such an uproar over a T-shirt I haven’t seen since the donning of the “I Heart Chick-fil-A” at a Pennsylvania schools LGBT event.

This time it’s not individuals who ended up in hot water, but a retail clothier, PacSun. By now you may have heard that the clothing retailer removed a shirt from the racks and shelves portraying an image of an upside down American flag.

CNS News  reported that “The $24 T-shirt, sold online and in selected stores, was part of rapper A$AP Rocky’s clothing line, and allegedly was meant to symbolize a nation in distress.

Well, the T-shirt sparked a twitter “Hashtag” campaign in which one of the participants was actor James woods. He tweeted: “Please, every follower of mine, please #Boycott PacSun. Disgusting trashing of American flag on Memorial Day.”

A supporter of the campaign posted on Facebook that “I understand freedom of speech but this shirt, displayed prominently at the entrance of your store, for Memorial Day weekend is more distasteful and disrespectful than anything I thought I’d see. I will not be shopping at PacSun again.”

Okay, I get the outrage and the boycott. After all, many of us understand that we are losing our country and witness constant reminders of it seemingly on a daily basis. read more

The Left Strikes Back with GoFundMe

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Well, the results are in, and it appears that the owners of Memories Pizza are more than all set financially.

For those who have been off planet, here’s a quick recap. A local TV reporter walks into a mom-and-pop pizza parlor and offers up a bogus hypothetical question – would this shop service a homosexual wedding? The question wasn’t whether or not they would simply serve homosexuals, which they would. They would sell anyone a pizza. No, the question was whether they would be involved with a homosexual wedding reception.

memories-pizza-gofundme-final-300x187This was a total set up. The owners of Memories Pizza merely voiced their First Amendment right of free exercise of their religion. But to the tiny minority of the homosexual fascist lobby, this wasn’t good enough. The pizza parlor owners received death threats and warnings – enough to force them into temporarily closing the restaurant.

Enter The Blaze’s Dana Loesch and her compatriot Lawrence Billy Jones III, who set up a GoFundMe account to help the small business which could ill afford to close. To the delight and satisfaction of those who advocate for true freedom, in two days the account swelled to over $842,000. Incredible and far greater than the original goal of $25,000.

Many thanks go out to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity Mark Levin and everyone else for promoting the effort and especially to all who donated.

Well, the left didn’t take too kindly to this and once again underestimated the power of freedom loving conservatives. They were simply not prepared for the outpouring of support. read more

Podcast – Religious Freedom vs the Governator

On this exciting episode I discuss homosexual fascism, our promised religious freedom and the weak-kneed and uninformed response of squishy establishment republicans like former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. I replaced the weekly Rate the Candidate segment with a judgement of other republican reaction. That and the recipe for how to deal with the loony left. read more
