See – Government can be Efficient – When it Comes to Admitting Muslim Refugees

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So the federal government really can be efficient – when it wants to. I guess it just must not want to very often.

I supposed we could say that August is a banner month for the government. Yesterday I wrote  that Barack’s plan for Obamacare was for it to collapse under its own weight, to then be replaced by a utopian single payer entirely government healthcare system – that this was the plan of the progressives all along. Obama said years ago that he thought might take 10 or 15 years or more to get to that point, but as I wrote – here we are, a mere six years in, with a system already imploding far ahead of schedule. That’s progress!

Today we hear of yet another milestone for the government. They are at least a month ahead of schedule on another major Obama project. Is it rebuilding our infrastructure? No. Is it putting people back to work? Nope. Is it reeducation camps for constitutionalists? No – none of those.

It was announced yesterday that the Obama administration reached its goal of admitting 10,000 Middle Eastern refugees  into the United States. Hooray! That’s six times more than in 2015. Hooray again! read more

Podcast – ISIS Recruiter Captured After Obama Released Him – Mike Rowe Gives Voting Advice – AK-47 Store Opens at Moscow Airport

A veteran terrorist was reportedly captured attempting to flee Libya for Tunisia. So what. Lots of terrorist are captured. What makes this guy so special? Well, he is one of a growing number of jihadists or terror leaders who have been released by Obama over the years and I’m sure there will be many more.

Mike Rowe, of “Dirty Jobs” and “Somebody’s Gotta Do It” fame was asked by a fan to implore his fans to get out and vote in the upcoming election. Mike had some great and rather unexpected advice for the fan – something you never hear from other TV or movie stars.

You too can purchase an AK-47 – from a store in the Moscow airport. Yes – that is correct. The new Kalashnikov store at the airport is now selling replica rifles (that look very real), hats, umbrellas and even ‘T’-shirts emblazoned with “I Love AK” on it. What a great idea. What could possibly go wrong? read more

I’d Cast My Vote for Trump’s Speechwriter

by: the Common Constitutionalist

On his Monday evening radio program, Mark Levin spoke of Donald Trump’s foreign policy/immigration speech. He said: “Trump gave a pretty good speech today and people ought to listen to it. When he’s focused – when he’s on message – and when he says things that most of us agree with, we ought to acknowledge that – if we’re going to be intellectually honest.”

This may be the first time I’ve kind of disagreed with Mark. I, like Mark and many true conservatives who haven’t yet partaken of the Trump Kool-Aid, thought it was a great speech – probably the best he’s done. But this wasn’t a Trump speech. It was measured and well thought out, lacking (most of) the usual bombast – a speech I personally don’t believe Trump could write himself. And that’s my problem. I’m not sure this is Trump’s message – at least not consistently.

We’ve all heard Trump speak extemporaneously and it’s not pretty. It used to be effective, but now it’s just tiresome and repetitive. But lately he has confined himself, for the most part, to reading teleprompter speeches – which is much better for him.

However, it is painfully obvious when he strays from the prompter. He repeats himself – he overemphasizes his statements to the point where they sound cartoonish. He then either run’s out of exclamations or realizes he’s strayed and it’s back on the teleprompter. read more

Corsica Erupts Over the Burkini Ban

A few days ago I wrote about a ban of the Muslim swimwear known as the Burkini in Cannes France. You may wish to review it here before continuing to the article below. You may link to it here.

Well, it’s spreading and so is the oh so predictable violence as the Clarion Project is now reporting:

Clash in Corsica

Clash in Corsica

On Sunday August 14, 2016, Bernard Cazeneuve, French Interior Minister, issued the following statement after a violent clash between locals and Muslim immigrants on the island of Corsica:

“A violent confrontation, the circumstances and motives of which will be determined by a police investigation, erupted on Saturday evening in Sisco, Upper Corsica, between local residents and a group of around ten out-of-towners. The four people injured, including a pregnant woman, were evacuated to the hospital in Bastia. Their injuries are not life-threatening. Three vehicles were set on fire causing major disruption of traffic and a brush fire was rapidly brought under control.” read more

Cannes – Site of the Film Festival, Bans Islam Swimwear

by: the Common Constitutionalist

When one hears of Cannes, it may conjure up images of a magical place in the south of France on the French Riviera – a place where the beautiful go. It is also world renowned for its annual film festival – where liberals go to see and be seen (mostly be seen) – a place where a large slovenly socialist millionaire is hailed regularly as a conquering hero – one Michael Moore.

But, the disheveled Moore is the exception at the film festival. New York Magazine described  the scene last May, “as some of the country’s best-dressed celebrities headed to the Cannes Film Festival for another round of cocktails and photographs. Take beautiful and famous people, add a liberal sprinkling of diamonds, and put them on yachts in the French Riviera and you get an event that’s extremely fun to look at.”

And naturally 99.999 percent of the “beautiful” people who show up each year are flaming leftists – leftists who, at endless cocktail parties, discuss their latest cause célèbre, like transgender rights, the oppression of the Palestinian people or just any old Muslim cause.

So I wonder how they will react when the scantily clad “beautiful” bikini set take to the beaches at Cannes during the next festival only to see, or not see, any Muslim women sporting a Burkini. read more

Still More Questions Than Answers Awaiting the WikiLeaks Benghazi Dump

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I’ve begun again listening to Rush Limbaugh on the radio, until he starts in with the rah-rah Trump segments – and then I must switch off the radio.

A couple of days ago I tuned in to hear Rush talking about Julian Assange at WikiLeaks. Evidently Assange is busy preparing yet another massive email document dump – this time pertaining to Hillary Clinton and Benghazi. I perked right up – mainly because I do so want her to pay for her crimes involving the Benghazi attack and the subsequent cover-up.

But I’m also extremely interested to find out the truth and if it jibes with what I started writing not 10 days after the attack. My first article on the subject, “Benghazi was no Coincidence,”  was published on Sept. 21, 2012, 10 days after the attack, followed up with another in October – “Benghazi… the Cover Up,” and many more for months after.

Now I hear through Limbaugh that the material Julian Assange has, backs up most of what we posited early on after the attack.

From what Julian Assange has leaked thus far, it appears that Glenn Beck, the Blaze, the Independent UK and I were right about a lot of things – things that at the time caused us to be accused of being crazy, conspiracy nuts and of course fear-mongerers. We were accused of spreading rumors about ambassador Stevens, his purpose in Benghazi and the direct involvement of Obama and his inner circle.

Some said that the cover up was strictly about Obama’s reelection and the eventual election of Hillary this time around. I didn’t believe it then and I still don’t now. Sure, that played a part – but that was far from the only reason. read more

The Pope has Taken Another Hard Left Turn

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I’ve expressed my perplexity with the present Vicar of Christ in the past and it doesn’t appear I’ll be jumping on his band-wagon anytime soon.

By all accounts, Pope Francis is a good guy. Of course he’s a good guy – he’s the head of the Catholic Church – revered by millions! But, as I’ve stated before – I’m not Catholic – so to me, he’s just a man – flawed like me and you.

That being said – I have been tough on him in the past and as I am not Catholic, when he says or does something I consider to be a bit off (in my opinion), I call him on it – the way I would anyone else, or anyone might do of me.

Among the many faults we conservatives find of the left is their use of moral relativism. Being that the Pope appears to have liberal and socialist leanings, his use of moral relativism should not be surprising. But this doesn’t seem to jibe with a laymen’s view of the Catholic Church – which has always been culturally or socially conservative.

Yet this Pope has waded into a number of hot social and political topics since being elevated and most of his opinions have taken a decidedly liberal bent – and this one is no different.

On a plane ride back to the Vatican from a trip to Poland, Pope Francis revealed his thoughts on Islamic violence. He said: “I think it is not right to identify Islam with violence. This is not right and this is not true.” read more

VP Pick Tim Kaine is Cozy with Islamists

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Hillary Clinton had her pick of leftists and radicals to choose from as her vice presidential running mate. She could’ve gone with the radical Injun Elizabeth Warren – but then two far left radical screeching women might have been too much.

She had her choice of an Hispanic or black or any number of leftists ne’er-do-wells and she could’ve even asked the old socialist curmudgeon Bernie Sanders – but instead chose a middle-of-the-road whitey.

Virginia Senator Tim Kaine is said to be a great choice. It is interesting though that we don’t hear the Democrats, who were all about diversity (when it suits them), complaining about the choice of a cracker – and worse that he is billed as a boring common sense Democrat. But Kaine is neither boring nor common sense.

As we are all aware, radical Islam is on the rise. We see or hear of attacks virtually every day. Left or right, we know this is a growing problem and is sure to be one of the number one issues in the general election. Voters will no doubt judge the two tickets on their stances regarding this issue.

We know, or at least he tells us, where the Trumpster and his running mate stand. If we believe them, they will be tough on terrorism and terrorists. Hillary, as we know, has a sketchy past to put it kindly. But we haven’t heard where Kaine stands on the issue – until now. read more

Podcast – Germany Suffers a Terrorist Attack – Trumps Creeping Convention Speech

An 18 year old loner killed 9 and injured 16 in Munich Germany in another mass shooting event. It doesn’t appear to be ISIS-inspired this time, however this was no run-of-the-mill 18 year old whack-job. Reports claim him to be Iranian-German, which means he’s Iranian living in German. Find out more in segment one.

Segment two the discussion turns The Donald and his magnificent acceptance speech at the Republican convention. And it was good – well written and well delivered – and perfect for the casual watcher and listener. But to those of us who know what to look for, it was creepy and scary. read more

Europe Is Paying for the Mistakes of the Past

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We are well aware of the many ISIS or ISIS inspired attacks throughout Europe. It is interesting that since the rise of ISIS, these attacks appeared directed at the European infidels and not just the long-proclaimed enemy of Islam – Israel.

Not that there are continuing attacks on the Jewish state – there are as there have always been. But recently they have taken a backseat to the mass carnage inflicted upon Europe and the United States by the Islamic State.

But why? Hasn’t it always been the number one cause of Muslims to avenge the oppression of the poor displaced Palestinians and drive the Jews out of Israel and into the sea? Has that not been the clarion call of all Muslims since 1948?

Heck, even individual European nations as well as the EU have, for want of a better term, conspired with Muslim nations and terrorist organizations to take down Israel.

For decades, “Europe had a cushy arrangement – all the world’s jihadists were so fixated on Israel that they were willing to overlook long-standing hatreds against ‘Crusader’ Europe, as long as Europe would help them wage war on Israel.” read more
