I Guess Black Lives Don’t Matter

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I thought black lives mattered – at least certainly more than white lives. Is this not the refrain we’ve been hearing since the lawful and necessary shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson last year?

Heck – we’ve heard and seen whites get booed off the stage for having the nerve to claim that “All Lives Matter.” “Oh no they don’t,” say the Black Lives Matter (BLM) indoctrinated faithful.

Yet it seems black lives only matter when they want them to protest, riot and destroy others’ property. When it comes to actually bettering black lives, they don’t really give a crap. In fact, it’s worse than that. Prominent blacks and black organizations campaign against the bettering of the very people they lie about representing.

Other than the obvious, the obvious being that they are black, what do Barack Obama, the NAACP and BLM all have in common? Sure, they are all radicals, but one else? Answer: all three oppose improving educational opportunities for black children.

It’s well known that Obama sends his children to the upscale posh private school, Sidwell Friends, at a cost of almost $40,000 per student per year. That’s more than most inner-city black families make in a year. read more

Podcast – Taxman’s Coming for Your Gold Medal – NFL Tells Cowboys They Can’t Honor the Cops – Hillary’s Tax Return is a Sham

Who knew Gold medals were taxed. Well, we should have – everything else is. Yes – American athletes return triumphantly from Rio proudly adorned with the hardware they worked their whole lives to win – only to be greeted at the gate by the taxman.

Black Lives Matter strikes again – and this time without saying a word. The NFL has denied a request by the Dallas Cowboys to place a sticker on their helmets honoring the Dallas Police Department – and all cops. Somehow it would stir up controversy and make a political statement.

Hillary has released one year, 2015, of her and Bill’s tax returns and charitable giving – but just one year. I discuss what a set-up this is and what a shame the return actually is.

I also quickly touch on the DNC staffer who was recently murdered and the LGBT Olympics. read more

Obama – the Great Divider

from my Joke Man Fred:

After the terrorist slaughter of policemen in Dallas, it’s fair to say that Barack Obama might well be the worst president in U.S. history. Here’s why.

The keynote of America’s domestic politics for the last 60 or 70 years—from sometime between the Supreme Court’s 1954 Brown v Board of Education school desegregation decision and the 1964 Civil Rights Act—has been the nation’s effort to undo the heinous wrongs that slavery and Jim Crow perpetrated on black Americans ever since the first slave was brought here in the 1640s. I am old enough to have had friends who were Freedom Riders, white college kids who went to Mississippi to register black citizens to vote. One I’ll never forget returned with tales of old people, whom legal chicanery had blocked from voting all their lives, marveling in almost Biblical language that such a miracle could be occurring in their own lifetimes, in their own towns. I remember how Sherriff Bull Connor turned the fire hoses and German Shepherds on those civil rights protesters, black and white, in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963, and how that same year governor George Wallace stood at the door of the University of Alabama to prevent the enrollment of two black students, proclaiming himself Jefferson Davis’s spiritual heir and vowing “segregation forever!” But what I most remember is skinny Deputy Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach walking heroically down that hostile Alabama street—alone, but followed by federal marshals—to force Wallace to stand aside and let the two students enter. It was as heart stopping as Gary Cooper walking toward the showdown on Main Street in High Noon.

I also remember how civil rights zeal turned into zealotry. We made the integration of our schools, and then the closing of the black-white achievement gap, our principal educational goal for half a century, with the unintended consequence that we neglected actual education and turned urban schools into machines for perpetuating black failure. Judge-ordained busing in Boston, completely contrary to the terms of the Civil Rights Act, made the schools more segregated than ever. A judge-ordained Kansas City school-funding-equalization order, forcing local taxpayers to shell out $2 billion  over  a decade, including building a bizarrely unnecessary Olympic swimming pool, produced no educational gains whatsoever and proved to anyone with eyes to see that money was not the key to racial equality in education.

Then, the colleges turned to affirmative action in admissions, the ed schools taught their students not how to teach or what facts they needed to transmit but only “social-justice” ideology, and deans of diversity began to outnumber actual teachers on college campuses. The professors themselves brought the stupendous achievements of Western culture under the suspicion of creating nothing but racial inequality (and later an unimaginably broad smorgasbord of inequity). They replaced Plato with Ta-Nehisi Coates. read more

Snoop Dogg’s Trump Song Isn’t Disturbing but a Parade Float Is

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In July, the piece of crap, drug using and women abusing rapper Snoop Dogg posted an anti-Trump video on his Instagram account. The “song,” and I use the word “song” in the loosest of terms, I guess is called F**k Donald Trump.

The lyrics are very catchy and must have taken him…say…30 seconds to write, as every other word is “yeah N**ger, or F**k Donald Trump.

I’m going to go way out on a limb and conclude Mr. Dogg doesn’t care much for Donald Trump.

After forcing myself to watch about 15 seconds of his masterpiece-of-crap, I proceeded to the nearest search engine to look for the appropriate backlash from every major news outlet in the land, decrying the caustic and racist nature of the “song,” and defending the Trumpster.

I thought surely, despite their misgivings with The Donald, all the major news outlets would join in to condemn such a hate-filled song.

Sooprise – Sooprise! Scrolling through two or three full pages in Google search, I found not a single posting by CNN, the Washington or Huffington Post, NYT, Salon – nobody. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

Leftist Matt Damon still just a white guy

It’s not charitable to revel in another’s misery or take pleasure from a man’s misfortune or even bad press, but I make an exception when that someone is ultra-leftist hypocrite Matt Damon.

Damon spends his time on screen as tough guy Jason Bourne, whom I admittedly love. Quite the conundrum, I realize, but the Bourne movies are great.

Damon as Bourne travels the world using firearms to kill everything in sight, and those he doesn’t shoot he beats to a pulp. Ironic isn’t it, considering actor Matt Damon doesn’t think anyone should own a gun and that private gun owners are a menace and a bad influence. As a leftist, he fails to see the irony of his gun-wielding characters having a much bigger influence on people than you and I could ever hope to have. read more

The Satanic Temple Is a Fraud

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A group from Salem Massachusetts is fighting for the right to institute their own version of an afterschool program to elementary schools across the nation. The Satanic Temple’s cofounder Doug Mesner, who goes by the name Lucien Greaves, is attempting to introduce “Satan After School” (SAS) to “counterbalance Christian afterschool programs.”

And not just any Christian afterschool program. They are targeting schools which have allowed the Christian “Good News Club” in.

The Washington Post writes  that what brought on the desire of the Satanic Temple to start an afterschool program was a 2001 supreme Court ruling. The ruling allowed for the Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) to be included in afterschool programs as a matter of free speech rights.

As if we needed the supremes to tell us that. The Post says that the “CEF then went on a tear, and by 2011, it reported 3,560 Good News Clubs, putting them in more than 5% of the nation’s public elementary schools.” read more

Podcast – Newtown Gets a New School – Emails Prove Democrats are Despicable

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Newtown, Ct. has unveiled a brand new Sandy Hook elementary school to replace the school made famous by the mass shooting in 2012. The new school is a magnificently designed piece of architecture, which has not a think to do with teaching little children to read and write. It is said to warm and inviting but has the security of a super-max prison.

The DNC and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) had their emails hacked, apparently by the Ruskies. WikiLeaks has published them, showing the world what we’ve been saying about the dems for years – they are despicable human beings from top to bottom. As it turns out, it all may have been prevented. Listen to find out how. read more

A Patriot Speaks at the Democrat Convention – How Odd

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The political world is buzzing over Khizr Khan’s democrat convention speech the other night, in which he urged his fellow Muslims and immigrants not to take this election lightly.

His speech started well – very patriotic – a story of an immigrant family who, in 1980, came to America with little or nothing. Khan said that with hard work they “could share in and contribute to its [America’s] blessings.”

Well, sir – you sounded very sincere – and if you were – why on Earth did you choose to speak at the hate-America and blame-America-first convention? If you have been in this country for any length of time – and you have – you should have learned that the democrat party is party of no work, not hard work. Its convention was one speaker after another either demanding or promising some sort of big government giveaway.

And why is Mr. Khan urging immigrants to not take the election lightly? Last I checked, “immigrants” are not supposed to be allowed to vote – or does that just apply to Republican immigrants. read more

Fox News Trump Cup Runneth Over With Misinformation

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I’ve heard about all I need to hear from the Trump cabin boys and girls on Fox News. This is why I decided to stay clear of recent political commentary, at least domestically.

But to the victors go the spoils and one of those spoils is the rewriting of history. Yes, those who win the day – those who conquer have the advantage of the “bully pulpit,” and as such are able to wantonly make false claims with very little blowback from the truth-telling minority.

These false claims quickly gain traction with the ill-informed or purposely ignorant until, over time, the false claims become what pass for true historical account.

I’m speaking specifically of the Republican convention, Ted Cruz’s speech, the crowd’s coerced reaction and the obvious and calculated effort by Trump to upstage Cruz. I am also speaking of the pitiful display by Fox News “analysts” in their attempt to crush Cruz and his supporters once and for all.

As an aside: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. We Cruz “supporters” are not sycophantic supporters of a man. We are supporters of ideas and ideals. Unlike the Trump rump-swabs, if Cruz betrays these, we’ll run from him as we have done from others. read more

Instead of Blaming Whitey, BLM Should Look at Their Own Representatives

from: Michelle Malkin

If Black Lives Matter, then why have entrenched members of the Congressional Black Caucus spent more time enriching themselves than taking care of their neglected constituents?

Too many social justice protesters are busy throwing shade, rocks, bottles, concrete blocks and vicious death threats at police officers of all colors trying to keep the peace.

Instead of moaning about “#WhitePrivilege,” I invite radical racial identity warriors to join me in taking on the black political elites selling out their people. Help expose the most crooked members of the caucus of Congressional Black Corruption: read more
