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

MSM: What – the Border is Wide Open?

from Breitbart:

CBS News Surprised to Realize Border is Open and Unsafe

A CBS News reporter appeared shocked and afraid after witnessing an illegal border crossing near Roma, Texas. The reporter said he and his film crew were threatened by a “scout” who told them the area was not safe and to go away.

CBS News reporter David Begnaud traveled to Roma, Texas, this week to cover a story about Texas landowners getting notices about a proposed border wall. While shooting a segment along the river border, he was shocked to see a group of illegal immigrants making their way across the river in broad daylight a few hundred yards from a U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. He was even more shocked when a man with a two-way radio approached them and told them to leave. read more

The Lies of Immigration Part 4

by John C. Velisek, USN Ret
for the Common Constitutionalist

Progressive socialists have gone so far as the defend MS-13 and working with fellow leftists and RINO Republicans to push for open borders – to fight for sanctuary cities to protect the criminals within the city limits and allow these same criminals back on the streets to further harm the citizens of this country.

President Trump has rightfully enforced “zero tolerance” leading to the leftists and celebrities, who no one listens to, loudly declare a “holocaust.” There has been legislation proposed that would solve family separation, but the leftists under the auspices of Chuck Schumer rejected this proposal out of hand. Schumer, along with other far leftist socialists want to see the return of “catch and release” against the wishes of the majority of American taxpayers.

Furthering their Alinsky style tactics, the leftists are moving towards confrontation. Peter Fonda has threatened Barron, the Presidents son. Fonda wants to put him in a cage with pedophiles and let him be raped. This type of Morality is rationalized by the claim that all conservatives are evil, and want to do as much damage as possible to “people of color.” read more

The Lies of Immigration Part 3

Guest Post by John C. Velisek USN (Ret)
for the Common Constitutionalist

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
