Trump U.N. Speech Will Not Soon be Forgotten

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The Trump speech at the United Nations was a walk-off grand slam home-run. And I don’t even like baseball. I thought I was watching Big Papi!

But enough already. I feel like a darn Yo-Yo – or maybe Michael Corleone, from the Godfather 3. “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”

No, I’m not talking about the Mafia. I’m referring to my support of President Trump.

I’ve said at least a few times that I’ve developed shin splints as a result of jumping off and back on the Trump bandwagon. He’ll do or say something positive or constructive for the nation, and then follow it up a day or two later with something dopey – or vice versa.

This time around, he did something dopey, i.e., meeting with Schumer and Pelosi. I don’t care how clever you think Trump is – you don’t make deals with the devil(s) – nor do you even agree to meet with them. You don’t lend those two any legitimacy of any kind – ever. For his dalliance with the two democrats, I said I had one foot on and one off the Trump bandwagon.

Then he turns around and gives a speech for the ages at the United Nations – one that should swell the hearts of Americans who are sick and tired of the United States kowtowing to the despots and dictators who populate the U.N. read more

In 2015, the Royal Navy released its concept of the surface warship of 2050. Now the RN is casting its crystal ball beyond 2050 by asking a team of young engineers from UKNEST to develop concepts for future British submarines. With designs that mimic sea animals, the manned and unmanned concept undersea vessels are intended to handle a variety of tasks in a future world experiencing intense competition between nations for ocean resources. read more

Moon May Have Sustainable Water

When you think of the moon you might picture a dry, desolate, rocky place, but recent evidence has been putting this idea to the test.

A new study shows the surface of the moon has more water than we thought, suggesting the interior of our natural satellite could hold a deep reservoir of water.

This new finding bolsters the idea that the lunar mantle is surprisingly water-rich, which could make colonising it for future space exploration much easier.

Every parent knows what it’s like to buy new clothes for their child, only to find they’ve already outgrown them by the second wash. A new kind of outerwear could reduce waste, hassle, and perhaps money by expanding in size as the child grows. Named Petit Pli, the clever clothing won the UK James Dyson Award and is slated to come to market.

Petit Pli creator Ryan Mario Yasin, a design engineer with a degree in aeronautical engineering, was inspired to create the clothing after he bought some new clothes for his nephew, but by the time he went to gift them, they were already too small.

Self-Sufficient Rotating Motorhome

While shows like the Australian 4×4 Expo and Overland Expo highlight  tough, no-nonsense trailers and motorhomes ready to get dirty right now, the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon dedicates some space to futuristic campers and technologies. And this year, the Volkswagen California XXL isn’t the only such concept camper wowing the crowds. France’s Green Cat Technologies has possibly the most head-turning concept at the show with a caravan that folds out into a roomy living space complete with solar and wind power generation. The sCarabane even rotates 360 degrees at camp, tracking the sun to generate electricity and hot water.

Lamborghini Smartphone

It’s known for creating the ultimate in luxury sports cars.

Now, Tonino Lamborghini has released a luxury Android smartphone to match its vehicles – the £1,900 ($2,450) Alpha – One.

The phone boasts Italian handmade black leather and a frame made from the same ‘stronger than titanium liquid metal’ used to build its supercars.

The Alpha – One smartphone also comes with an accompanying custom black leather case, but critics claim the device’s specs do not match its price tag.

Despite Lamborghini claiming its latest phone features ‘the most luxurious technology’, the device has similar specifications to high-end smartphones that cost less than a third of the price.

If trolls really did live under bridges, they could do a lot worse than commission Spaniard Fernando Abellanas to build them a new home. The self-taught designer recently installed a novel shelter under an anonymous traffic bridge in Valencia that includes shelving, seating, and even a sleeping space. read more

WND Exclusive – In Defense of History’s ‘Imperialistic’ Explorers

We on the right – I mean the real right – have been insisting that the tearing down of statues and monuments from the Civil War era would not end there. The leftist radicals would inevitably turn their wrath beyond Civil War white racists and direct their hatred to any white American slave owner. As we’ve seen and heard, this naturally extends to whites of the Revolutionary era, who are simultaneously celebrated heroes and damnable slave owners.

And then we wondered – what’s next after that? Could there possibly be a next? Well, wonder no more.

Now, normally, when wacky ideas emanate from the left, they originate in Europe, leapfrog to California and then make their way across the U.S. to negatively affect the rest of us. read more
