You May be a Conservative American if:

You are wealthy, unapologetic and not racked with guilt.

You don’t believe you gained your wealth on the backs of the poor.

You are not wealthy, but want to be and don’t wish to rob or scam anyone to get that way.

You don’t feel guilty about wanting to keep more of what you’ve earned.

You don’t hate or wish to punish the people who have more than you, simply because they have more.

You are not a racist, but the left says you are.

You are not a homophobe, but the left says you are.

You are not a bigot, but the left says you are.

You are not a sexist, but the left says you are.

You are not transphobic, but the left says you are.

You don’t believe that because men should use the men’s room and women should use the lady’s room makes you transphobic. read more

Murders Continue to Escalate in Liberal Cities

Cities around the country are breaking records. Oh, it’s not for job growth, graduation rates or anything hopeful like that. They’re breaking records for documented homicides and shootings.

It’s gotten so bad that cities like Baltimore, in a desperate and dimwitted attempt to slow the number, have turned to calling for ceasefires. But like every other ceasefire, as those called for on several occasions between Israel and the Palestinian terrorists or those in Syria, the city ceasefires have worked out just about as well.

However pointless warring faction ceasefires are, Baltimore’s was much worse. Between nations or factions, the two sides at least publically feint at agreeing to halt the killing.

Baltimore community leaders had called for a 72 hour ceasefire this past weekend using the hashtag #BaltimoreCeasefire on social media. They received no affirmation of cooperation from anyone. Yet this they hoped would do the trick. Twitter “virtue signaling” always does. And by always, I actually mean never. read more

WND Exclusive – Give us your tired … tired of feudalism, socialism

By now virtually everyone with any political interest – aka us – have seen the heated exchange between Senior White House Adviser Stephen Miller and CNN’s Jim Acosta regarding immigration and the Statue of Liberty.

As has been the case recently, CNN “reporters” are sent to the White House briefings to be antagonists – not to report. Acosta clearly had no interest in acquiring any information disseminated by Miller. He was there to preach and filibuster, while always on alert for a “gotcha” moment. This is the present-day job of the liberal Washington press corps. read more

Obama Era Military Initiative Replete with Security Risks and Foreign Infiltration

One of the federal government’s only constitutionally mandated functions – the military – has paid the price of the Obama reign of terror. As the Trump administration attempts to repair the damage, rocks are still being overturned, only to discover further devastation and deterioration.

Did Obama do anything to actually advance this country? Did he or his minions do anything to improve the country – make it more prosperous, more secure, stronger, more respected, among nations? I really want to know.

Actually these are rhetorical questions. We who have paid attention – even scant attention, know full well that Obama didn’t set out to improve the nation, but rather tear it down and rebuild it in his own Marxist image.

Most of us (I hope) remember the speech Michelle Obama made where she exclaimed that, “Barack knows we’re gonna have to change our conversation – we’re gonna have to change our traditions, our history – we’re gonna have to move into a different place…”

More prescient and depressing words have rarely been spoken. And years after that prediction, we’re still paying the price. read more

Ignorance of the Law is no Excuse – Unless You’re a Refugee

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

From Federal, to States and municipalities, there are an almost immeasurable amount of laws. So many that no one could possibly know them all, much less keep track of them.

What we do know is the phrase, ignorantia legis neminem excusat. Okay – maybe we don’t all know Latin – but we have heard the English translation – Ignorance of Law Excuses No One. It’s legalese that means a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because one was unaware of its existence. In other words – if a law says some action (or inaction) is a crime and you commit it, you’re guilty. The principle is also one of the first that students learn in law school. It’s pretty simple and pretty straight forward.

It is unless one happens to be a refugee from some far away land. Then this principle, which is strictly enforced on us law-abiding American citizens, may not. read more

More Cities Roll Out the Illegal Alien Welcome Mat

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Conservatives have several issues to be concerned with these days. One that just keeps resurfacing is illegal immigration. Some are already blaming Trump for softening his position on illegals. This may or may not be, but the guy has been in office for less than six months, so I’m going to cut him some slack. To me, he appears to be doing what he can on his own, with seemingly zero help from the Chamber of Commerce controlled legislature.

He is going ahead with border wall plans and mockups, and his anti-illegal rhetoric has apparently been effective at tamping down illegal entries. Yet while this is happening, liberal cities are still rolling out the welcome mat for criminal aliens.

Last week the Chicago Tribune wrote an editorial about, “A nationwide immigration rights initiative called ‘Welcoming Cities…’” They begin by tugging on the readers’ heart strings, saying, “Getting a library card or joining a PTA shouldn’t be intimidating experiences. They are, however, for residents living in the country illegally and who often live in the shadows of society.”

I was frankly surprised they even mentioned the word illegal. And I agree – it should not be an intimidating experience. It should not be an experience at all. It’s stunning to read such a sentence, but to leftists, the words “in the country illegally,” is like water off a duck’s back. The irony is completely lost on these people. And this is not a news report. It is an editorial, which advocates a certain position. read more

Podcast – Austria Smartens Up – Forcing Migrants to Integrate – Banning the Burqa

With almost 10% of its population now Muslim migrants and refugees, the nation of Austria has admitted it has problem. A problem they’ve finally decided to address. They’ve passed new laws that will be instituted beginning in October to ban the burqa in public places, require Austrian integration classes, including the German language, culture and customs.

Naturally those on the left are not happy with change in policy – a 180% turn from the current just-let-them-all-in policy, which has worked so well.

Podcast – Illegals Get Free College

Today I discuss two articles from the College Fix which explain how both DePaul and Emory Universities are developing programs to allow illegal aliens to attend the schools for free, or at least at drastically reduced levels. And the fun and fair part is that the rest of the student body at DePaul will have to pay additional fees to allow it. Isn’t that great.

So if you’re an American citizen, or even a legal international student you will be expected to pay extra – on top of the skyrocketing tuition you already pay. But that’s fair, because as I explain, it’s every illegal’s right to a free college education. read more

from Heavy.com:

A United States district court judge has just blocked part of President Donald Trump’s executive order on sanctuary cities.

Judge William Orrick on Tuesday granted a nationwide injunction, blocking the Trump administration from following through on its threat to take away federal funds from cities that do not comply with national immigration laws, according to CNN.

William Orrick is 63 years old, and he is from San Francisco, California. According to his Senate confirmation hearing, he is married, and he and his wife Carolina have three daughters: Sarah, Libby, and Catherine.

Here’s everything else you need to know about Judge William H. Orrick III.

Judge William Orrick was appointed to his current position by President Barack Obama.

At the time of the appointment, Orrick was working at the law firm Coblentz, Patch, Duffy & Bass LLP. He has previously served as deputy assistant attorney general for the Civil Division of the United States Department of Justice.

Obama nominated Orrick in June 2012, but Orrick was not approved until February 2013. This was mainly a party line vote, though Republican Jeff Flake broke with his party to vote to confirm Orrick.

When Barack Obama was running for president, Judge William Orrick reportedly helped raise money for him and donated some of his own money as well.

According to Public Citizen, a consumer rights advocacy group, Orrick donated approximately $30,000 to committees supporting Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign for president. In addition, he helped raise $200,000 in contributions to the Obama campaign.

This had not been Orrick’s first time raising money for a Democratic politician. During the 2004 election, he helped raise funds for John Kerry, according to Public Citizen.

Podcast – New Immigration Guidelines – Harvard Says Gender Can Change Daily

The new immigration guidelines have been announced. No, not for America – for Australia. The island continent/nation has decided it has had enough and has modified its citizenship test and guidelines to stress assimilation. Among other things, they have the nerve to insist that in order to become an Australian citizen, immigrants must demonstrate the ability to speak, write and understand English. Imagine that. The Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnball adds that Australian citizenship should be honored, cherished and a privilege.

Segment two may cause a mental melt-down, as Harvard claims it to be a scientific fact that there are more than two sexes – and that the office of BLGTQ student life insists that gender is so fluid as to change as often as daily. They’ve even published, at school expense, a gender diversity guide that says so. read more
