Podcast – It’s a Social Justice Weekend

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yes, it’s an all social justice podcast, as I discuss Nike’s decision to promote Colin Kaepernick and his bogus “Stand for Something” platform. I explain that while this may seem like a bad business decision, it really isn’t. Nike understands its target audience, and it isn’t those guys burning their shoes.

In part two of social justice weekend, I discuss the reboot of the `90s television series, Party of Five. But this time around, it’s decidedly NOT all-American. What a surprise, that a Disney channel would promote illegal immigration. read more

I Must Disagree with Mollie’s Dad

Mollie Tibbetts’s dad, Rob Tibbetts, wrote an Op-Ed for the Des Moines Register this past Saturday. It was heart-felt and obviously written by a Dad who adored his daughter and wishes to shield his family from further pain.

That being said, this may be the most ill-advised article I’ve ever written and will probably land me in some hot water, but I none-the-less feel compelled to write it. So here we go.

Rob Tibbetts writes that, “At the outset, politicians and pundits used Mollie’s death to promote various political agendas. We appealed to them and they graciously stopped. For that, we are grateful. Sadly, others have ignored our request. They have instead chosen to callously distort and corrupt Mollie’s tragic death to advance a cause she vehemently opposed.”

I get that, which is why it’s difficult for me to publically disagree and take issue.

First, there are dirtbags on the right who really are died-in-the-wool white supremacists and racists, and wish everyone who isn’t white to get gone. That’s too bad, but this being a free country, they have every right to their own opinions, no matter how vile. read more

Video Podcast – Apologies to Immigrants – Take a Knee

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Let’s talk about another example of democrat symbolism over substance.

California state legislators passed a resolution demanding that president Trump and Congress apologize for separating families at the border. But would an apology be just a first step to something more?

A federal district court judge, administering the oath of citizenship, tells the new Americans to “take a knee” in protest. Yes, that’s what a citizen wants hear. Welcome to America new citizen. Too bad the country you chose is so awful. read more

A Common Language is Handy When Learning how to Skydive

Say you and your family decide to take a vacation. But instead of the normal touristy destinations, you place your brain in a box and go to Russia, or Pakistan or some other place that isn’t Americanized, or at least not necessarily accommodating of Americans.

You arrive, and right of the bat you realize this is a mistake. You know where you need to get to, but no one speaks English and none of the signage is recognizable.

Then, as luck would have it, something happens – some sort of disaster – an Earthquake or something. And there you are with your family in tow all looking at you for guidance. People are running hither and yon. Police are yelling out instructions, but you can’t understand a word. Pardon the vernacular, but you’re pretty much screwed.

Now imagine something very similar here in the United States. read more

Media Intentionally Lies about ICE

Last night I saw this story aired on my local CBS affiliate. It was presented exactly as the Blaze describes – dishonestly. Never did they mention the reason why this illegal was hauled away.

from the Blaze:

Media ignore key detail in story about ICE arresting father driving pregnant wife to hospital

The mainstream media were aghast on Saturday after Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested an illegal immigrant who was driving to the hospital with his pregnant wife to deliver their baby.

However, most outlets conveniently buried the story’s most important detail: the man was wanted for murder.

What’s the background?

ICE agents apprehended Joel Arrona-Lara last Wednesday at a gas station in San Bernardino, California, while on his way to the hospital. His wife, Maria del Carmen Venegas, was scheduled to deliver their child via caesarean section. read more

Anyone can be an American

We are the worst country on the planet. At least we are according to the radicals on the left.

Funny thing about being the worst. When you are the worst, not many will gravitate toward you. If we are truly the worst, most racist, most homophobic, anti-immigrant, misogynist nation, no one with even half a brain would want to come here legally, much less sneak in under threat of arrest and imprisonment.

But the facts don’t support the left’s amplification of outrage. The facts do support that America is the most attractive nation on the planet, as demonstrated by the fact that everyone wants to get in and no one wants to leave. Not even the wacky Hollywood leftists who vowed to do so should Trump get elected. We’re still waiting, by the way.

No other nation is even close. The only reason Europe has had such a large influx of immigration is strictly due to geographic proximity. If the United States was closer to the Middle East and Africa, they would all choose to come here.

The United States is the only place on earth where you can immigrate here, legally, and if you go through the right channels, you can become an American. Not just a citizen, but an American. read more

Is it Time for Congress to Shutter the Ninth Circuit Court?

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is, in recent history (1994 – 2015), the most reversed federal court of appeals. 

According to Article I, Section 8, Clause 9, “The Congress shall have the Power To: constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;” which by logical extension would mean they also have the power to dissolve them as they see fit.

With this latest demonstrably absurd ruling, is it time for Congress to act, dissolve and reconstitute the Ninth Circuit?

from Conservative Review:

Ninth Circuit allows Mexican citizens to sue American Border Patrol agents

Just when you thought the stolen sovereignty and erasing of our borders by the Ninth Circuit couldn’t get worse, well, another court opinion comes out.

It’s bad enough that foreign nationals can invade our border, make demands on our agents, demand welfare, demand schooling, be counted in the Census, and claim citizenship for their children. Now foreign nationals can sue our border agents for doing their jobs and protecting us from the perils they foist upon our brave men and women. read more

Savings from Imprisoning Illegals will Pay for the Border Wall

Obviously the majority of people crossing the border aren’t criminals or even bad people. And by criminals, I mean committing a crime beyond crossing our border illegally.

But we hear stories all the time about criminals who commit violence of one sort or another. And the story is always the same. So and so illegal immigrant, attacked, raped, murdered someone. The umpteen times deported illegal was arrested for, fill in the blank. read more

Podcast – Jim Acosta – Spies not from Russia – DACA to Restart

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Before I begin speaking about Jim Acosta, I quickly discuss a new play about Anne Frank, where the Nazis are replaced with ICE agents. Yep – that’s right.

Don’t blame Jim Acosta for trying to shape the news. Blame Walter Cronkite, the once most trusted man in America.

Senator Diane Feinstein had a spy on her payroll for 20 years. Oh, you haven’t heard. Maybe because she’s a democrat and the spy was not Russian, but Chinese.

A lower court federal judge is demanding the restart of the DACA program. I discuss why he has no authority to make such a demand. read more
