WND Exclusive – CHICAGO IS A GANG-BANGER’S PARADISE

The Chicago Tribune reported that a man, “who lives on the West side of Union Avenue,” in Chicago was awaken by gun fire. It was around 2 a.m., when along with what he described as seven or eight shots, he also heard doors slamming and the screeching of tires.

What he heard was the attempted murder of a 31-year-old female trying to escape a situation in her GMC Yukon. She was shot in the head as she tried to speed away. The woman was taken to “University of Chicago Medical center, where she was in critical condition Wednesday morning.”

Oh, you must have thought I was reporting on one of the 74 weekend shootings in the Windy City this past weekend. No. This was one of the additional 16 shootings, including seven more murders committed from Monday to Wednesday, making a five-day total of 90 shootings and 19 murders. read more

Video Podcast – No Mo Money for No Mo NRA

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

You know the saying: “People vote with their wallets.” It means that people cast their vote for whomever and whatever has or will benefit them financially, or that they find vitally important.

But the saying applies to everything – not just elections. It even applies to charities and fund-raising.

The leftist group National March on the NRA, the NMNRA, which I lovingly call No Mo NRA, found this out after their pitiful crowd-funding effort. read more

Is San Diego Punishing Border Wall Contractors – or Themselves

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Oh look. Government is picking winners and losers again. What a stunner.

But this time it isn’t the federal government, but one State and several municipalities within this State. If you guessed California, you win absolutely nothing except my admiration and knowledge that you are plugged in. Although certainly my admiration is worth more.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that, “San Diego is the latest city poised to join the list of California municipalities demonstrating their opposition to Trump’s promised border wall by punishing businesses involved in working or even bidding on the wall prototypes or other border-wall projects.”

More and more cities in the Golden State are simply refusing to do business with any company who has or intends to have anything to do with the Southern border wall. If you are a construction company who built a prototype or bid on anything that has to do with Trump’s wall, you will not be allowed to work or even bid on any San Diego city projects. read more

Hypocrisy Reigns at Eugene Lang College

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

According to the Princeton Review, “Eugene Lang College is an ‘unconventional,’ highly urban school with few academic requirements where courses have ‘really long poetic titles’ and professors ‘go by their first names.’” Yeah I’d pay well north of $20K a year for that – wouldn’t you, you groovy hipster? And we wonder why young adults can’t find decent paying jobs after graduating college. Because they graduate with worthless degrees by taking courses like “queer ecologies.”

This upcoming semester, the college will offer this four-credit course entitled, “Queer Ecologies.” The course is said to be, “for students who wish to ‘disrupt prevailing heterosexist discursive and institutional articulations of sexuality and nature.’” Yep – that’s a really long poetic title all right, which means absolutely nothing to most but sure does sound edumicated, don’t it. I swear. I think they just purposely string a bunch of multi-syllabic words together to make them sound erudite. And the more confusing it is, the more high-brow it must be. read more

Blacks Are Being Lied To

by: John Velisek USN (Ret.)

for the Common Constitutionalist

Civility in politics has always been a challenge. There are examples of poor behavior going back to the Founding. The two-party system is adversarial, but rules of order and the basic decency of our citizens have been a brake on the outright violence seen in third world countries.

This has changed in the past eight years. Former President, Barack Obama worked hard to sow divisions within our populous, and deepen the rift that many Americans worked so hard to close. Academics pursue these divisions for no other reason than to attempt to push a socialist agenda. While most people in real America do nothing more than work hard for long hours to put food on the table and pay their bills, there are those who want nothing more than to tear our country apart. read more

The “Straw” that broke the Camel’s Back

Excuse my French, but this the most asinine thing I’ve heard in a while – even for California. And I wonder if the penalty for crapping on the side walk is as stiff? Just asking.

from the Blaze:

City of Santa Barbara, California, passes straw ordinance with harsh penalties, including jail time

Santa Barbara, California, is the latest municipality to ban plastic straws but this city’s ordinance carries some exceptionally harsh penalties — including potential jail time.

The ordinance for the California coastal city applies to anyone who hands out plastic straws at restaurants, bars, or other food establishments, Fox News reported.

What are the details?

Yahoo Report of Iowa Republican is a Case of Half News

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

There’s some buzz going around that a Republican State Congressman from Iowa recently left the Party and is resigning his seat in the Iowa Congress. That’s true, and the left has picked it up and gleefully run with it.

As I have a Yahoo email address, I get their newsfeed automatically. Yahoo is decidedly leftist, which is why I’ve retained it and read it regularly, as I do CNN, the HuffPo, ThinkProgress, VOX and others. It’s good to stay abreast of what the enemies of liberty are thinking, both abroad and within our own borders.

The July 18th Yahoo article is entitled, “Republican politician quits party over Trump’s ‘erratic and misguided leadership’ following Putin summit.” I thought it interesting, so I read on.

“Ken Rizer, a retired Air Force Pilot, took to Facebook to announce his decision after the US leader met with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki and suggested that he did not believe that Russia had meddled in the 2016 presidential election.”

“As for me, I can no longer call myself a Republican given the erratic and misguided leadership of the president. I will always be a (Ronald) Reagan conservative, but find no place for such views in Trump’s world. Until the Republican Party recovers its values, my party affiliation will be ‘No party,’” wrote Rizer. read more

College Diversity Scams are All About the Money

Want to really understand College diversity programs? Were they created to combat the scourge of sexist, racism and homophobia?

No – not really. Instead, Heather MacDonald for Prager University says it’s much simpler. All you have to do is what you would have when trying to find the source or reason of any swindle or scam. Just follow the money.

Prager University – Fascism is just Another Form of Socialism

The left wants us to believe that conservatives and those on the right are fascists. But Dinesh D’Souza for Prager University explains just what fascism truly is and who the father, or philosopher, of fascism is.

He tells us that the father of fascism was an Italian, Giovanni Gentile. D’Souza also explains that fascism is decidedly leftist as Gentile, a committed socialist, was influenced by his mentor Karl Marx.

Dinesh adds that simply put, “Fascists are socialists with a national identity.”
