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)

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

Housing May be Soon out of Reach for Many

from IBD:

Housing Crisis May Be Inevitable, Thanks To Government Meddling

With home prices soaring in most markets, this is the best time to be a homeowner since 2005. But there’s a downside: Thanks to continued government meddling, the housing market has rarely been more fragile. Is another housing crunch brewing?

We’ve talked before about the strength of the U.S. economy, particularly after tax cuts kicked in. And that’s still true. Unfortunately, 10 years after the 2008 financial crisis, there’s one exception: The housing market, which, despite superficial signs of health, remains dysfunctional. read more

The Lies of Immigration Part 2

The infamous “catch and release” has worn out its welcome. It was never intended to get immigration under control, but rather to increase the number of illegal aliens in our local areas and allow progressive socialist States to add to their voter rolls. It doesn’t matter that the Constitution does not give them the right to vote. Like Obama, they will ignore it until they get enough illegal votes to scrap it.

And the continual violations of the Mexican government are an obstacle to the immigration policies that are required. They don’t want these people in Mexico, and it is effortless to push them through to our country. Mexico does nothing to stop the flow of these illegals from their southern border to the American frontier, passing through the child traffickers, drug dealers, and gang members. And yet their government speaks with a superior air about how these people should be treated. The bottom line is if you are not keeping these people in your country don’t let them pass through. Refugees, which is what Mexico calls these people, are to be according to the UN, accepted by the first free country they arrive at, which would be Mexico. So most Americans feel, as do I, that if you can’t be an asset in fixing this problem then just SHUT UP. The only alternative is to tax all remittances going to Mexico from the US and the complete shutdown of NAFTA.

Of the many organizations pushing for the defunding of ICE, many are organized and funded by George Soros, the financial head of the anarchy taking place in our country, and the foundational head of the mainstream media who walk in lockstep with his wishes. read more

Socialism is Cool – Until You Experience It

With the victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who garnered a whopping 17,000 votes in a New York democrat primary, “democratic socialism” took another big step forward. And is being heralded as the beginning of a movement. It’s one thing for some old fossil like Bernie Sanders to promote socialism, but quite another when it’s a young, attractive woman. Of course she’s only attractive until she opens her mouth. But still, more and more people are being drawn to her message of “moral clarity” and being the “champion of the “working class.”

For a more in-depth look into Brazil, you may review an article I wrote last November, entitled “Socialism is Never Cool.”

So rather than me droning on, please watch the following video from Prager-U of just how great socialism worked in Brazil, by someone who lived through it. read more

Kennedy’s Retirement Sends Leftists into a Depressive State

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring from the United States supreme Court on July 31, 2018. Gee – you may have heard. If you haven’t, you must be living on another planet.

It took almost no time for the left to go into melt down mode. Justice Kennedy personally delivered his resignation letter to the White House on Wednesday afternoon, and by 2:01 PM, ThinkProgress had already posted a lengthy article bemoaning the fate of the nation. It’s almost as if they had prewritten it and were waiting for the announcement. Kind of like writing an obituary before the person croaks. And it was also kind of like an obituary for the progressive left. Sweet music!

Reading the ThinkProgress piece entitled, “The horrifying consequences of Justice Kennedy’s retirement,” is like conservative porn.

They begin by rehashing the 2016 presidential election and how it was stolen. When conservatives claim the left is still obsessed with and will likely never fully recover from Trump’s drubbing of Hillary, you can take it to the bank.

Reading their account is delicious and similar to how I feel when viewing a replay of a football game when, no matter happens during the game, I know that my team ultimately prevails. I mean except for this last Super Bowl.

Then they list a few of their biggest worries. First was the sacrosanct right of every American woman to murder her children – otherwise known as Roe v Wade. read more

WND Exclusive – A Prediction about Trump’s Order on Alien Families

Andrew Klavan of the Daily Wire made the point, when he replayed a portion of a Chuck Schumer Senate chamber speech, that it sounds like the minority leader wants Trump to become king and just make and rescind laws with the stroke of his pen.

Sarah Sanders Being Refused Service Shouldn’t be a Big Deal

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Other than the nonsense happening at our Southern border, the big news over the weekend was that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was refused service and, “She and her family were asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va.”

“Jaike Foley-Schultz, who says he is a waiter at the Red Hen, shared a post on Facebook that said his boss kicked out the press secretary and her party.”

Sanders confirmed that this was the case in a tweet:

Predictably, both the left and right are blowing up over this incident. They shouldn’t, but they are. And both sides are because, to this point, it has been so unusual. If things like this happened everyday, it wouldn’t be news. read more
