Kennedy’s Retirement Sends Leftists into a Depressive State

Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring from the United States supreme Court on July 31, 2018. Gee – you may have heard. If you haven’t, you must be living on another planet.

It took almost no time for the left to go into melt down mode. Justice Kennedy personally delivered his resignation letter to the White House on Wednesday afternoon, and by 2:01 PM, ThinkProgress had already posted a lengthy article bemoaning the fate of the nation. It’s almost as if they had prewritten it and were waiting for the announcement. Kind of like writing an obituary before the person croaks. And it was also kind of like an obituary for the progressive left. Sweet music!

Reading the ThinkProgress piece entitled, “The horrifying consequences of Justice Kennedy’s retirement,” is like conservative porn.

They begin by rehashing the 2016 presidential election and how it was stolen. When conservatives claim the left is still obsessed with and will likely never fully recover from Trump’s drubbing of Hillary, you can take it to the bank.

Reading their account is delicious and similar to how I feel when viewing a replay of a football game when, no matter happens during the game, I know that my team ultimately prevails. I mean except for this last Super Bowl.

Then they list a few of their biggest worries. First was the sacrosanct right of every American woman to murder her children – otherwise known as Roe v Wade. read more

Have We Finally Found a Democrat Red Line?

In recent years, there has not been a red line in the sand the democrats would not cross. In foreign policy, Obama would bow and curtsy to every tin-pot thug and dictator, and give them most anything they desired of the United States. Even self-imposed “red lines” were fair game.

Domestically, nothing was too radical – no line they wouldn’t cross. And dealing with spineless Republicans made it that much easier.

But then a funny thing happened. Trump got elected and sent the left into a manic nosedive. From there, the rhetoric of the left just became more and more vitriolic. No low appeared too low for leftist politicians, pundits or “journalists.”

Then another funny thing happened. The illegal alien crossings began ramping up and we suddenly had an alien epidemic on the border. And the dems finally had their issue. They figured with their mastery of heart-string tugging, they would force The Donald to hoist with his own petard. The left had the issue to bring the “hard-line,” anti-immigrant, jingoist leader to his knees.

And for a while, it appeared to be working. But the left is nothing if not predictable. Trump didn’t cave as expected – like good Republicans should. He pushed back. Leftists can’t deal with push-back. It just makes them behave more radically unhinged. read more

A Leftist Questions a Leftist? What is the World Coming To?

Have we just woke up in bizarro world? I mean – what the heck just happened? A liberal host on CNN actually questions a leftist democrat Senator whether her outrage is genuine? Is this not a fireable offense?

Podcast – Transgenders vs Feminism

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

You may have heard that a couple of transgender students, boys who think they’re girls, were allowed to compete at a girls track meet recently in Connecticut. It didn’t go well for the girls as the fake girls kicked their butts.

Now there’s a debate about whether this is fair for the girls who have given up much to workout, train and compete, all for nothing – to lose to boys playing dress up.

Well, it’s not fair – it’s absurd, but this is the disease of radical leftism. They will keep on pushing ridiculous agenda items as this until the system just collapses or enough people of common sense declare that enough is enough. And that time has come.

The Deep State Swamp Must Be Held Accountable

Guest Post from John Velisek, USN (Ret.):

It is now a foregone conclusion that the liberals of the late 50’s have turned their back on America and have become progressive socialists. They have every intention of pushing their fascist tendencies in order to turn our country into a police state which is the culmination of the agenda they have formulated.

Subverting the Constitution has been a major portion of the progressive socialist agenda since the implementation of the tactics of Saul Alinsky and Coward/Piven. Well steeped in this agenda are the likes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the leftists that now have overtaken the party. The rhetoric they use and the actions they have taken undermine our basic values as a country. Even now, with the sponsorship of globalists like George Soros and funneled through groups like Obama’s Organizing for Action (OFA), they continue to push back against the American people and the agenda of Donald Trump.
With the help of RINO Republicans and Never-Trumpers, they want Americans to follow their orders and not ask any questions. For starters, look to socialists like Kamala Harris and the rest of the happy group that are destroying California.

Using such falsehoods as people losing their healthcare insurance that her fellow radicals demanded to be paid for by those who could least afford it, she uses the straw man that only corporations have benefited from the Trump tax cuts. Never mentioned is the carve-out for unions and corporations that the leftists favor. read more

Is Ocean’s 8 a Women’s Empowerment Statement or just Another Failed Reboot

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The movie “Ocean’s 8” debuted last night. I wrote this article last night, as movie-goers no doubt thronged to their local theaters, so I don’t yet know of the first night box office tally. But I’m certain the much anticipated all-female thriller/crime film raked it in. Or maybe it didn’t.

UPDATE: Well, it’s starting well. The movie took in $44 million in its opening.

Considering it only cost $70 million to make, I’m sure it will do fine. I mean, the first Ocean’s movie, “11,” cost $85 million and it was made 17 years ago, in 2001. Its box office take was almost a half a billion dollars worldwide. And that was a reboot of the 1960 original starring the Rat-Pack. Even with the 2001 star power, the reboot couldn’t match the cool of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Peter Lawford.

But why make this in the first place? Did the industry not learn anything from the disastrous female reboot of the all-Male Ghost Busters franchise? That bomb lost almost $75 million.

Although Ocean’s 8 may not lose money, I doubt it will be the surprise box office smash of the summer. I may end up being wrong, but I think that relatively few movie goers want to plunk down their cash to see a bunch of “empowered” women play at being men. read more

Teacher Gets the Ax over a Name

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A school teacher has recently been fired because he refused to call students by the name they prefer rather than their given names.

No, it wasn’t a case of Robert wanting to be called Bob, or Juliet wanting to be called Julie. That would have been simple. But it seems life in the public school system never is these days, even in a State like Indiana, which isn’t exactly considered as a hot-bed of leftism.

Yet, now Former Brownsburg High School orchestra teacher John Kluge, is without employment because he believes it’s wrong to call transgendered students by their “preferred” names, rather than the name which was given them at birth.

Yes – this is the soul reason why Kluge is unemployed, and now probably black-balled as a hater from seeking employment at any public school. read more

Prequel Solo is Fun Without all the Social Justice

from the Daily Wire:

A Different Perspective: ‘Solo’ Is A Great ‘Star Wars’ Movie That Mocks SJWs

Despite galactic shortcomings at the box office – with headlines like: ‘Solo’: How Big a Box Office Dud Is the ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff?, How can Star Wars get back on track after Solo’s disappointing debut?, or ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ falls far short of box-office expectations – Disney delivered a fast-paced, (mostly) well-written westernesque action flick detailing the dawn of the universe’s most notorious pilot, Han Solo, and his hirsute companion, Chewie.

Trump, the Lunch Pail Billionaire, has Driven the Left Mad

It was August 1, 1988. Remember the date? Maybe not, unless you’re a common sense, right thinking conservative. It was the first day of Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio talk show. And it was the beginning of the new conservative movement. One that the everyman, like you and me, could be part of.

The show took off like a rocket. No one had ever heard such things, particularly from the boring, deadpan, AM dial.

And why did it become an instant an enduring success? First was the shock factor. People, me included, couldn’t believe what we were hearing. “Can you believe what that Limbaugh guy said on the radio,” was a common refrain.

And second, and more importantly, Rush gave voice to what we were thinking. It’s just that simple. Finally there was a guy in the media who actually thought like us – believed what we did, and was not shy about expressing it. In a sea of liberalism from the left and measured politispeak from the right, Limbaugh was breath of fresh air. read more

Another Trump Derangement Mishap by the Left

I know it’s not charitable, but there’s a certain amount of satisfaction obtained by seeing radical leftists in the main stream media twist in the wind as they scramble about trying to cover up yet another Trump Derangement mishap. Their hatred of Trump is so blinding that they’ve completely abandoned any fact-checking in order to advance the anti-Trump train down the tracks. Thankfully for us, the more they jump the gun, the more the voting public sees what disingenuous liars they are, and how they really are just the media arm of the democrat party.
