Podcast – The Electoral College – They Brought it Up – Not Us

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Okay – here we go again with the Electoral College. Why do we have to keep talking about the antiquated Electoral College?

But we on the right didn’t bring it up. The democrats continue to. I could be discussing other stuff, and really, who cares about the Electoral College. It’s dry and boring and does it really matter anyway?

Well, we better care and care a lot, because if the left wins the propaganda war and eventually somehow amends the Constitution or something, this country is finished. That’s not hyperbole – it’s cold hard fact.

If you want the Founders explanation of why it’s needed, read Federalist Paper, number 68, written by Alexander Hamilton.

I’m just doing it in modern day bad English.

So as long as the left keeps trying to ram pure democracy, mob rule, down our throats, we have to continue to at least try to educate those who might listen to the logic and beauty of our election system. read more

Vaccinations and the Power of the State

Should the government – local, State or federal, have the power to force anyone to be vaccinated against highly infectious diseases? Good question.

There has been a recent outbreak of the measles in New York. Local affiliate WABC reports that just since October, 2018, there have been 214 confirmed cases in Brooklyn and Queens and another 153 in Rockland County.

And because of this, Rockland County has declared a State of Emergency. Rockland County Executive Ed Day announced that non-vaccinated minors are now barred from public places.

AS of Thursday, March 28, 2019, “anyone who is under 18 years of age and is not vaccinated against the measles is prohibited from public places until the declaration expires in 30 days or until they receive the MMR vaccination.”

MMR stands for the combination vaccine for Measles, Mumps and Rubella (German Measles). read more

If You Don’t Support the Leftist Agenda – People Will Die

Yes, this video is almost two years old, but it’s as relevant today as it was then. And we still have the same cast of characters and the same silly issues the left continues to push. And with the 2020 presidential election heating up, you know the rhetoric will just become more hyperbolic as each candidate tries to push the envelope further to the radical left. As Rush Limbaugh says, it’s demonstrating absurdity by being absurd.

MSNBC Anchor Calls Out Democrat Senator for Hypocrisy

This is stunning! Seeing an MSNBC anchor call out a fellow climate change traveler for her hypocrisy. I wonder what’s next – that these true believers on Cable News will figure out that the politicians they love are just that – politicians. That they don’t actually believe any of this crap?

from the Blaze:

MSNBC’s Katy Tur presses Sen. Hirono after no Dem votes for Green New Deal: ‘you’re trying to have it both ways’

After no Democratic senator voted in favor of the Green New Deal on Tuesday, the party line was to blame Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for trying to divide the party with a “show vote.” read more

What to Conclude from the Mueller Report

from the Daily Wire:

5 Big Takeaways From The Mueller Conclusions Exonerating TrumpImage result for Trump collusion

On Sunday, Attorney General William Barr released a letter that broke the hearts of thousands of members of the media and top Democrats across the nation. The letter revealed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller – the Left’s best hope for a deus ex machina ending to the Trump presidency – had found that the Trump campaign and President Trump himself did not collude with the Russian government, and that there was not sufficient evidence for obstruction of justice against Trump. read more

Willy Wonka and the Leftist Impeachment Factory

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Veruca Salt, the spoiled child from the film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, encapsulates today’s left to a tee.

Everything Veruca decided she wanted had to be immediate. She wanted everything NOW. And if she couldn’t get it, she would have a temper tantrum.

The same can be said of democrats and leftist media personalities.

However, one can easily argue that the dems are far worse than the indulged Miss Salt. She was, after all, a mere child. Spoiled brat democrats and their comrades in the main stream media are adults ranging from their 20s to their 70s. Yet virtually all of these supposed adults are no better than petulant children, who insist on getting their way, and it must be NOW.

They want climate change legislation now. They want our guns – Now. But most of all, they want Trump impeached, removed from office and in leg irons – NOW. read more

There is Tension in the Air over the Release of the Mueller Report

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Oh the Muller Report! When will it be released to the public? Will it be released to the public? As of about 5:00 PM yesterday, the much anticipated report was in the hands of Attorney General William Barr and his Justice Department.

There hasn’t been this much buzz about a release of anything since the reintroduction of the Star Wars franchise.

But unlike Star Wars, which I love, the Mueller Report, at a total cost estimated to be north of $25 million, is going to be a total nothing burger. Nothing that was set out to be proven will even come close. That is, of course, Trump and Russia collusion.

And those who are touting it most are going to be the most disappointed.

Most have marveled at how tightly the Mueller team has kept this well-guarded report. In a town like D.C., that can’t keep a secret to save their lives, it is rather astounding that there have been few, if any, leaks. read more

Executive Order Ties Free Speech on Campus to Research Funding

from the Washington Free Beacon:

Trump Signs Executive Order Promoting Free Speech on Campus

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Thursday tying federal research funding for colleges and universities to their policies governing free speech.

“We are delivering a clear message to the professors and power structures trying to suppress … young Americans and all Americans from challenging far-left ideology,” Trump said at the White House while flanked by free-speech advocates. “People who are confident in their beliefs cannot censor others. They welcome free, fair, and open debate, and that is what we are demanding.” read more
