Chicago Schools are Broke and the Teachers Union Couldn’t Care Less

Public school districts across the nation are dead broke or headed that way in a hurry. We can naturally assume the ones in the worst position are districts in cities controlled by democrats. We’d be right to assume this.

What the cause is should also come as no surprise to anyone – I mean, except for other democrats who always fixate on infrastructure. US News reported back in March that Hillary suggested the “Department of Education reinstate a federal program to assist states and districts with funding to repair and modernize schools.”

Truth be told, democrats like Hillary may be corrupt liars, but they are not stupid. They know full well what the problem is, but won’t and can’t broach the subject – not if they want to be elected or maintain the office they currently hold.

“Chicago, the city school district – the third-largest in the country – is a whopping $1.1 billion in debt. Already laying off staff and imposing unpaid furlough days, it most recently told principals to stop spending money altogether,” write US News. Chicago has been under democrat control for 84 years. read more

Only the Right Can Exploit Children

There are some bedrock truisms in America today – all meticulously crafted by the left over the years. One is that, all things being equal, the private sector is inherently selfish and self-serving, whereas the public sector is selfless, looking only to benefit those they serve.

Another is that the rich do not now, nor will they ever “pay their fair share,” and the only way they got rich is on the backs of the poor. Of course no one has asked them what number or percentage equates to “their fare share.”

And still another is that Republicans are exploitive and Democrats are not. To prove this point I give you two juxtaposing cases.

You may recall the young man from Georgia – C.J. Pearson. The self-professed young black conservative became an instant internet sensation when last year he posted his first YouTube video calling out president Obama for not loving this country – doubling down on Rudy Giuliani’s comments excoriating our dear ruler.

As I wrote  in February, 2015, 12 year old C.J. came out with guns a-blazing saying: “President Obama – you don’t love America. If you really did love America, you would call ISIS what it really is – an assault on Christianity – an assault on America and a downright hate for the American values our country holds – of freedom of speech – freedom of religion and everything our country stands for.” read more

With All that is Happening – The Left Chooses the Birther Issue

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In the past 3 or 4 days, the old Obama “Birther Claims” are again making headlines. This time is that candidate Donald Trump is attempting to close the door on it by saying that Barack Benito Milhous Hussein Obama (ht: Mark Levin) was born in the United States – period.

You know it – the claim that Obama was born in Kenya and therefore not eligible to be president – the claim that was first implicitly floated by the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2007 and 2008. Yes, that one.

It wasn’t Donald Trump who originally fired up the birther train. He just took it to ridiculous heights.

It was actually a political stunt by Hillary Clinton’s chief strategist Mark Penn who wrote in 2007: “His [Obama] roots to basic American values and culture are at best limited. I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and his values.” read more

The NFL Nixes Another Good Deed

The National Football League has made the headlines recently. Unfortunately, not for the right reasons.

This weekend was the kickoff of the 2016 NFL season. Being that it long-ago supplanted baseball as America’s pastime, one would expect it to be in the news – that and fantasy football has become a nationwide obsession.

Yet it is the ridiculous antics of a few players which have stolen the headlines. It’s well known what the San Francisco quarterback did during the preseason. By sitting or taking a knee during the pregame national anthem, he has injected politics into the NFL. Since then, a few others have followed suit, claiming they too are taking a stand (or a seat, or a knee) against racism and oppression in America – the pet cause of charlatans and race-hustlers.

And for the antics that detract from the game we love, the NFL does nothing and says little – no fines, no game suspensions – nothing. We all know these fools have every right to protest and support their phony cause – and to that I am in full agreement. read more

All White College Students Are Racist

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I listen to Jay Severin at the Blaze Radio Network from time to time, although not as often as I used to. Back in the old (or at least older) days, Jay had his own show broadcast here in New England.

One of the catch phrases he used, when a college kid called into his program was, “best time of your life kid.” He still uses the phrase and for him, being an “older gentleman,” I’m sure that was true.

However, I don’t think he can necessarily say that and it be categorically so any longer, especially if you are white.

Many colleges today are discriminating against white students  and doing it outwardly and without shame – none more than Pomona College in Claremont, California.

Posters have been seen plastered all over the dorms entitled, “How to Be a (better) White Ally.” Reading the poster, I think it could have been crafted by the New Black Panther Party or Black Lives Matter. It is that offensive.

The poster should actually just read: “Whitey Go Home,” or “We Don’t Want Your Kind at This School.” And that’s not far from the truth, as “Pomona College had several events last year that white students were not allowed to attend.” read more

America Is Traveling at Warp Speed Toward Racial Insanity

It’s not often that sports and politics cross paths. Sure, the fact that the sports press is more liberal than their news counterparts is widely known, or should be, but I’m speaking of the athletes.

Every once in a while athletes will take a political or cultural stand, but it is still the exception, which is why the Colin Kaepernick story has garnered so much press.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback sat during the national anthem prior to the start of an NFL preseason game a couple of weeks ago and again, took a knee, rather than stand during the last. He says he is doing this to show solidarity for oppressed blacks.

It’s one thing for a grown man to voice his opinion in such a way, but it’s quite another to consciously or unwittingly influence children to mimic his actions. It seems Kaepernick’s antics have “inspired” six fifth-graders to take a knee during the reciting of their school’s Pledge of Allegiance. read more

In Defense of Anthony Weiner

by: the Common Constitutionalist

NEW ITEM: Scroll down for the audio version of this article. 

I think we can all agree that Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos Danger, is a big steaming bag of pooh. I mean – taking a photo of one’s barely covered man sausage with your young son right next to you in bed? That’s pretty low – even for him. Actually, I guess it isn’t being that this is evidently not the first time he has used the kid as a “chick magnet” (his words).

Sadly, I’m sure he’s not the only dad doing this sort of thing. He’s just the most famous – and possibly the dumbest. That, or he is so desperate for any attention, he just doesn’t care.

However – is Weiner really doing anything worse than the potential “first dude” has done? When you think about it, Weiner appears to just be the 21st century Bill Clinton. Does anyone think that if Bubba had available this type of smartphone technology in the `80s and `90s, he wouldn’t have used it to its fullest? Darn right he would’ve.

In fact, Bill Clinton is a much bigger dirt bag than Carlos. Weiner’s hook-ups at least appear to be consensual, where as – well – we all know about Clinton’s abhorrent exploits. Yet Bill Clinton is treated like a rock star, while Weiner, whose marriage appears loosely patterned after Bill and Hil, is just a disgraced deviant. read more

‘Shoot-to-kill mentality’ hits home for Dwayne Wade

Last month (July 13), four black NBA superstars took the stage at this years politically correct sports awards show, the ESPYs.

Of course anything on or having to do with the sports network ESPN or its affiliates is left-leaning and politically correct – quite often more rabidly than the liberal news media.

We learned that fact long ago (2003), when the network hired Rush Limbaugh to do a segment on its popular football show, “NFL Sunday Countdown,” telling him he could say anything he likes and then firing him for doing just that. read more

Of All People – Hillary Tries to Play the Race Card

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday I was critical of Donald Trump’s new and evidently “evolving” illegal immigration policy. Some Trump supporters didn’t take kindly to any criticism of their man. That’s too bad, because we constitutionalists were in favor of Trump’s original hard line on illegal aliens. It’s a shame he appears to be softening.

But in order to be fair and intellectually honest, we will also defend The Donald when the Dragon Queen, Hillary Clinton, throws false accusations his way.

Of all the things Hillary could accuse Trump of, she and her team have decided it is time to play the tried-and-true democrat race card. Historically this tactic has worked quite effectively against most, if not all Republicans – mainly because most Republicans are too spineless to fight back and tell the truth about the Democrat Party.

We can only conclude that most on the right still have not educated themselves on the roots of the Democrat party and instead accept the false narrative that Democrats are the champions of minorities. Of course, it is the exact opposite. The Democrat party has been the party of racism, segregation and eugenics, whereas it was the Republicans who fought for equal rights and the closing, or at least defunding of the black eugenics factory, Planned Parenthood.

Obama was obviously able to play the race card because he is… well… black. But for Hillary to attempt it is a laugh riot. Her and Bill, throughout their history in public life together, have befriended and lionized many known racists. read more

2 sets of justice in medieval America

Unlike Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton is apparently fighting for the little guy. She wants the top of the income pyramid to finally pay their fair share. For too long the little guy has been getting the shaft, while the rich and privileged get away with not paying up, not being held accountable – and Hillary will rectify this.

It’s almost as if there are two systems in place in America – one for the rich and powerful and one for Hillary’s little guys – just like it was in medieval Europe: justice for the lords and a different kind of justice for the serfs.

This is the state of America’s justice system today. More than any, officials in government are supposed to be beyond reproach. Due to the trust bestowed them by the citizens, they are held to a higher standard. But some abuse this trust. Some government officials use their position to enrich themselves. Ironically, Hillary Clinton (and husband Bill), the defender of the little guy, is the biggest abuser of them all. read more
