Trump – the Sour Patch President

The world may actually melt down due to Donald Trump’s harsh words of our intelligence community and at the same time, praise of Vladimir Putin.

As an aside – isn’t it funny how the left are all of the sudden the greatest boosters of the American intelligence community, when back in the Bush era the left couldn’t lambast them enough for dragging us into the Iraq war under false pretences. Yet now they’re unassailable. Just thought that illuminating.

Back to that fiend Trump.

There’s a TV commercial that’s been airing recently – either on Netflix or Amazon. Anywho, it’s for a candy. They call it Sour Patch candy. My kids used to eat it. The commercial describes the candy as, “first they’re sour, then they’re sweet.” First the candy, which is animated in the commercial, does something bad (sour), but then follows up by doing something good (sweet). That’s Trump.
And this silly candy analogy could very well have described the day between the two leaders. Trump could have taken Putin to the woodshed during their private meeting, and then followed up the lashing with effusive public praise. How the heck do we know? read more

Prager University – Fascism is just Another Form of Socialism

The left wants us to believe that conservatives and those on the right are fascists. But Dinesh D’Souza for Prager University explains just what fascism truly is and who the father, or philosopher, of fascism is.

He tells us that the father of fascism was an Italian, Giovanni Gentile. D’Souza also explains that fascism is decidedly leftist as Gentile, a committed socialist, was influenced by his mentor Karl Marx.

Dinesh adds that simply put, “Fascists are socialists with a national identity.”

WND Exclusive – How the Founders Failed to Prevent Judicial Activism

Dan “bag-a-donuts” Bongino was filling in on the Mark Levin radio program this past Wednesday. For those unfamiliar, bag-a-donuts is Dan’s “catch phrase.” He uses it to describe the “everyman.”

I love this guy, because he is the everyman. He’s smart but plainspoken, like a lot of us.

He was speaking of his confusion regarding the left. They claim, he says, to be so concerned that if Judge Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court, Roe v Wade instantly will be overturned – like the next day or something.

And Dan asks, if the left really thinks abortion on demand is settled law, why should they worry? read more

Video Podcast – Russia Indictments – Universal Basic Income is a Crock

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss briefly why the Mueller indictments of Russian “Agents” is a monumental waste of time. Also, regardless of whether we think they are guilty or not, an indictment is not proof of that guilt.

My main topic however, is the Mayor of Stockton California’s lame-brain idea of giving 100 lucky winners $500 a month as a Universal Basic Income. In other words, the city would provide more freebies to people who have to do nothing for it. Great idea. Let’s not teach anyone to fish, but just the give the fish away. Worst idea yet! read more

When Liberal Ideology Crashes into Reality

from IBD:

Fight Against $15: Democrats Push To Repeal Minimum Wage Hike In Nation’s Capital

“Fight for $15” is the rallying cry for most Democrats these days. But soon after Washington, D.C., voters approved a hike in tipped wages to $15, Democrats on the city council moved to repeal it. That’s what happens when ideology crashes into reality.

On Tuesday, 7 of the 13 members of Washington’s city council sponsored a bill to jettison the wage hike for tipped workers that 56% of D.C. voters had approved by a ballot initiative less than a month before. read more

The Lies of Immigration Part 4

by John C. Velisek, USN Ret
for the Common Constitutionalist

Progressive socialists have gone so far as the defend MS-13 and working with fellow leftists and RINO Republicans to push for open borders – to fight for sanctuary cities to protect the criminals within the city limits and allow these same criminals back on the streets to further harm the citizens of this country.

President Trump has rightfully enforced “zero tolerance” leading to the leftists and celebrities, who no one listens to, loudly declare a “holocaust.” There has been legislation proposed that would solve family separation, but the leftists under the auspices of Chuck Schumer rejected this proposal out of hand. Schumer, along with other far leftist socialists want to see the return of “catch and release” against the wishes of the majority of American taxpayers.

Furthering their Alinsky style tactics, the leftists are moving towards confrontation. Peter Fonda has threatened Barron, the Presidents son. Fonda wants to put him in a cage with pedophiles and let him be raped. This type of Morality is rationalized by the claim that all conservatives are evil, and want to do as much damage as possible to “people of color.” read more

Drowning in Government Cheese

from IBD:

A Mountain Of Surplus Cheese, Brought To You By The Federal Government

According to the federal government, almost 1.4 billion pounds of surplus cheese now sit in refrigerated warehouses around the country. Yet dairy production is climbing. What gives?

The amount of surplus cheese is growing fast — up 6% in just the past year.

According to news accounts, the reason is that dairy production is climbing, while dairy consumption is falling. Data from the Department of Agriculture show that between 2008 and 2017, milk production in the U.S. climbed 13%.

Over those same years, however, consumption has sagged — with per capita milk consumption down 14%, USDA data show. read more

Podcast – The Attempted Smear of Jim Jordan

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Most of us are aware of Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio. He’s a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus and is considering a run for Speaker of the House. Well that can’t stand. An actual non-establishment constitutionalist as Speaker of the House. And has a CR Liberty Score of almost perfect at 98%.

So what to do? I know. Let’s create a scandal and accuse Jordan of something. That’s the ticket. And better yet, we’ll create one that is virtually unwinnable by Jordan. We will cause him to prove his innocence by proving a negative. Almost impossible to do. Let’s unearth a couple of dirtbags to accuse Jordan of “knowing” something, and he’ll have to prove he didn’t. How can anyone prove he “didn’t” know something? Yeah, that’s good. Let’s go with that.

So today I discuss what Jordan is being accused of and just who are his accusers.

The Lies of Immigration Part 3

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

Immigration is once again a hot-button issue for the progressive socialist left. And it gets hotter during an election year. Once again the corporate fat cats and leftists are in an uproar over the same policies that Obama made a part of the politics of bringing down America. In the fall of 2013, unaccompanied illegal minors inundated our country and spurred the start of catch and release. Even former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson claimed just a few days ago that “catch and release” does not work.

Democrat Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar appeared on CNN and admitted that the Obama Administration also had family separations but was covered up by both the administration and the media. The policy of letting these illegals run free in our country is a detriment and a danger to the law abiding people of this country. It is not asylum that the majority of these people are looking for, but economic betterment through the largesse of the American taxpayer.

Under the former administration, the federal government unwittingly initiated, through the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, the placement of these minors into homes for child sex trafficking, forced labor, and situations that can be considered nothing more than modern day slavery. read more

U.N. Says Your Air Conditioners are not Safe

from CFACT:

Montreal mission creep: The UN’s coming for your AC

It is called mission creep when a government operation tries to go beyond its established mission. In this case the operation is the UN led, Montreal Treaty group of nations. Their mission has always been far out and questionable, namely protecting the stratospheric ozone layer from human interference. Now they want to do their bit in the bogus war on climate change.

Through the 1987 Montreal Protocol, the Greens clamored for the adoption of refrigerant HFC’s, or hydrofluorocarbons, to replace older refrigerant chemicals (CFC’s) that were said to be punching a hole in the ozone layer. Today, HFC’s, the same chemical the Greens were in love with, is now claimed to be causing – you guessed it – global warming.

It is especially nasty when the government flips, saying that the fix that was right (and expensive) is now wrong (and much more expensive to refix), but it keeps them busy (and powerful). read more
