Come On Already – We are not a Democracy

We hear it all the time – America described as a democracy. It’s pervasive in today’s society, particularly in the political class.

One of my heroes, economist and former fill-in host for Rush Limbaugh, Walter E. Williams, explains just why America is not a democracy, and why our Founding Fathers were very clear about it.

The Leftist Media Lie about Illegal Immigrant Families – What did We Expect

from Ben Shapiro at the Daily Wire:

But not a word from the media or any democrat at the time!

The Media Are Lying About Trump Separating Illegal Immigrant Families. Here’s The Truth.

Over the weekend, the media went insane over the supposed Trump administration policy of separating illegal immigrant parents from their children. According to the media, Trump could with one quick fix simply prevent the separation of children from their parents; according to the media, all Trump has to do is wave his magic wand, and all will be well.

This is a lie.

More specifically, it’s several lies.

1. Trump Created Separation Of Children From Illegal Immigrant Parents. This is plainly false. In 1997, the federal government made an agreement in a case called Flores not to keep unaccompanied illegal immigrant children in custody beyond 20 days. The settlement said nothing about accompanied illegal immigrant children – children who crossed the border with their parents. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals then ruled that accompanied children also could not be held in custody under the terms of the settlement. This meant that the government either had to release whole families, or that the government had to separate parents from children.

2. Immigrants Seeking Asylum Are Being Punished For Seeking Asylum. This is plainly untrue as well. Immigrants who come to points of entry to seek asylum aren’t actually illegally in the country – they’re not arrested. They’re processed through ICE, and their children stay with them. If, however, illegal immigrants cross the border illegally, the Trump administration now treats them as criminals. If they choose deportation, they aren’t separated from their kids; if they choose to apply for asylum, they stay in the country longer than 20 days, and their kids have to be removed by operation of law.

3. The Trump Facilities Are Awful Thanks To Trump. They may be awful, but they were just as awful under President Obama. These are pictures from Brandon Darby of Breitbart circa 2014:

WND Exclusive – TRUMP’S DIPLOMACY: SMACK-EM DOWN, BUTTER-EM UP – And it Works

President Trump is once again being pilloried in the press for what Yahoo News calls, “an ‘astonishing’ concession to Kim Jong-un and North Korea.” What a surprise.

Trump’s comments, they write, “sent shudders through the already shaky architecture of military alliances that undergird U.S. global power. Abandoning joint military exercises will immediately begin to degrade the readiness and deterrent posture of the 32,000 U.S. troops in South Korea, military experts say.”

May I ask what military alliances undergird U.S. global power? Without the U.S., there is no global power. How many nations across the globe depend upon the mighty United States military to protect them? And how many do we rely on to protect us? read more

Should the Mueller Investigation be Ended?

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The Mueller witch hunt “investigation,” should not just end, but must. And it has nothing at all to do with fairness, partisanship, or even who he is investigating.

I’ll explain shortly, but first I’d like to thank the left. I’d like to thank them for being a bunch of lawless enemies of freedom and liberty. I’d like to thank them for attempting to flush our founding documents down the crapper every chance they get.

This may sound strange but it is genuine. For without the left’s constant and consistent radical behavior over the years, I might never have picked up and began studying the Constitution, the Declaration, and the writings of the men who crafted, affirmed and ratified them. Wow – I’m such a geek!

Oh sure, in the past, I read the Declaration, the Constitution and even skimmed the Federalist Papers, but none ever really had the impact or true significance that they do today. But that’s true about most things and most situations. Most of us never truly get serious about something until we feel threatened, for want of a better expression.

Well, I feel threatened – even more so than when Barack Obama was King President. read more

Podcast – Transgenders vs Feminism

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

You may have heard that a couple of transgender students, boys who think they’re girls, were allowed to compete at a girls track meet recently in Connecticut. It didn’t go well for the girls as the fake girls kicked their butts.

Now there’s a debate about whether this is fair for the girls who have given up much to workout, train and compete, all for nothing – to lose to boys playing dress up.

Well, it’s not fair – it’s absurd, but this is the disease of radical leftism. They will keep on pushing ridiculous agenda items as this until the system just collapses or enough people of common sense declare that enough is enough. And that time has come.

Obama Knew of Hillary’s Secret E-Mail

from The Federalist:

IG Report Shows Obama Lied When He Said He Knew Nothing About Hillary’s Secret E-mail Scheme

In 2015, President Obama told America he only learned that his secretary of state Hillary Clinton was illegally using a private email server to conduct public business after The New York Times published a story saying so. Today’s release of a Department of Justice inspector general report shows that was a lie.

“FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account,” the report says in a footnote on page 89. “Obama, like other high level government officials, used a pseudonym for his username on his official government email account.” read more

Republicans Cave to Donor Immigration Wishes

by: John Velisek USN (ret) for the Common Constitutionalist

The tax cuts and wage hikes have come to the American people as a godsend. More money in a working man’s pocket is always a positive event. But there is a movement afoot being pushed by the GOP establishment, and their corporate donors that support them, to align with the progressive socialists on a push for amnesty.

A discharge petition written by the GOP, and spearheaded by Florida GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo, is demanding that amnesty should be “as high a number as possible,” according to what Curbelo told Roll Call.

The donors are calling the shots in an effort to assure a steady stream of immigrants, both legal and illegal, to fill the low wage jobs that the donors create for a profit and at the expense of the American working man and the rule of law.

Part of this agenda is the attempt to convince the American people that this influx of low skilled low educated workforce is good for America. The polls being paraded across the televisions of America show poll after poll of American approval of immigrants. What it does not make clear is the same people they use in their polls adhere to President Trumps’ ideology of America First. Those same respondents have clearly shown that Americans should be hired first at prevailing wages before hiring migrants. It’s not that they are jobs that Americans won’t do, but Americans need a living wage to do them. read more

One Less Opportunity for the Democrats to Cheat

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

And boy is the left not happy about it.

Voting in elections – local, State and national, is a right of every American citizen, 18 years of age and older. There is no test or licensing process one has to go through. That’s how we know it’s a right.

Well check that – kind of. The Second Amendment confirms the right to own and carry a firearm, yet look how many hoops one has to jump through in many States just own, much less carry one.

The Constitution, and by extension, the various levels of government, does not confer or bestow these rights, but merely confirm that which are our natural rights. In fact, voting is so important that it is covered in the 14th, 15th, 19th, 24th and most recently in the 26th Amendment, ratified in 1971. It was the second to last time the Constitution was “legally” amended.

So why bring up the subject of voting rights? Because, as many of us know, the United States supreme Court recently handed the democrat party a potentially crushing bit of news. In Ohio, dead people will no longer be allowed to vote.

Okay, it’s a little more than that. In a typical 5-4 decision, the high court affirmed that it is indeed constitutional for the State of Ohio to clean up its voter rolls. read more

Video Podcast – Trump May Legalize Pot

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

President Donald Trump said Friday that he’s inclined to support a bipartisan effort in Congress to ease the U.S. ban on marijuana, a proposal that would dramatically reshape the nation’s legal landscape for pot users and businesses.

Of course we Constitutionalists, even the common ones, know that it isn’t the federal government’s job to make it illegal or legalize it in the first place. That’s the sole responsibility of the States.

In other words, president Trump would merely be setting right what should have been since the feds started medaling in the State’s business in the first place. read more

WND Exclusive – Thank God for the Anti-Federalists

In an Oct. 24, 1787, letter to Thomas Jefferson, James Madison expressed that, “Col. [George] Mason left Philadelphia in an exceeding ill humor indeed. A number of little circumstances arising in part from the impatience which prevailed towards the close of the business, conspired to whet his acrimony. He returned to Virginia with a fixed disposition to prevent the adoption of the plan if possible. He considers the want of a bill of rights as a fatal objection.”

At the Constitutional Convention, in mid-September 1787, committed Anti-Federalists George Mason and Eldridge Gerry failed to persuade any of their fellow delegates to preface the Constitution with a bill of rights.
