Growing Fascism on College Campuses

by: the Common Constitutionalist

“A decade ago students were having lousy experiences on their campuses but there was not a way to let the world know,” said Shaun Harper, founder and executive director of the Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education at the University of Pennsylvania told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “Now students are beginning to understand that what they are experiencing is a national phenomenon. Social media is a tool for students to help communicate their issues,” he said.

Actually social media is a gathering place for the new agitator set to whine and cry about how they are put upon and subject to faux-abuse. And this is demonstrated every day on any number of college campuses throughout our country. And why does anyone need to “let the world know” when your little feelings get hurt?

But its not about hurt feelings or name calling. Now is about forcing real change – change driven by a tiny minority of miscreants and rabble-rousers – change the majority neither wants nor should accept. read more

Just Let Everyone In, As Long As They Are Muslim

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday the Senate Judiciary Committee passed what they mindlessly named a “Sense of the Senate” resolution calling for no religious test for immigrants entering this country. The bipartisan vote was 16-4. It was offered up by Vermont Statist Senator Patrick “Leaky” Leahy ( D-Vt.) as an amendment to a bill, S.1318, the Nuclear Terrorism Conventions Implementation and Safety of Maritime Navigation Act of 2015.

The resolution was added by Leahy over the issue of Trump’s comments, with Democrat Senators repeatedly saying that excluding people on the basis of religion was intolerable and not what the country stood for. In supporting the bill, Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) talked about Trump wanting to close down houses of worship, which is exactly what liberal France is doing. They have closed down three thus far, confiscating hundreds of weapons. But I’m sure the weapons were just for hunting… infidels.

And a funny thing happened on the way to the democrat and establishment republican talking points: In November CNS News,  looked at data showing “only 53 Syrian Christian refugees have been allowed into America, compared to 2,098 Syrian Muslims.” read more

Trump Isn’t Wrong On Muslim Immigration

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Another week, another Trumpism. It seems not a week goes by where Trump isn’t blowing up the headlines – and the heads of the left and the establishment right. And on occasion we conservatives feel the need to defend him, or at least his statements.

Of course everyone is speaking of the Trump statement (mostly negatively), now heard round the world that he is calling for “A complete and total shutdown of all Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what’s going…”

One of his supporters, standing in a rather long line at a Trump event in South Carolina was asked by a CNN reporter whether she had a problem with the plan. The supporter said: “That’s a very prudent idea and I think that he’s done due diligence when he makes that statement.” She added that, “We have to protect American citizens and the vetting process lacks integrity.” The reporter then says, although not to the Trump supporter, that, “That’s not true. In fact the vetting process, run through multiple agencies, is vigorous.”

Well, Ms. CNN reporter – that may be true, but whether the “vetting” process is vigorous or not is immaterial. If Muslims coming into the country have no “paper trail,” one could “vet” them until the cows come home and still no nothing about them or their intentions. I do though have a problem with the supporters thought that Trump did his due diligence. No he didn’t. He just blurted it out. At least it appeared that way. But this too is immaterial. It takes no due diligence to know a good portion of these Muslims, certainly the refugees, cannot be vetted and therefore should be denied entry. read more

Is Radical Islamism a Choice?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The president says: “ISIL is not Islamic,” despite the fact that Islamic is in their name. “ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple,” he adds.

Before I go any further, let me clarify Obama’s steadfast insistence on using the term ISIL instead of ISIS. ISIS is the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, whereas ISIL is the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The Levant is said to encompass the countries of Cyprus, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Turkey and of course Israel.

So Obama uses ISIL as a veiled slap in the face to Israel, which he obviously has animus toward. Allen West explains that, “if you choose to refer to this group as ISIL, you have basically rewritten the map of the Middle East and fallen into the trap of not recognizing the existence of Israel and also Lebanon. If you use ISIL you are then validating the Islamic totalitarian and jihadist claim that the modern day Jewish State of Israel is an occupation state and does not exist in the eyes of Muslims.”

Obama and the left also contend by omission that Islamic terrorists, ISIS or not, are also not Islamic. We on the right argue that indeed there are such things as Islamic terrorists. In fact, as I’ve written before, it is the only “religion” in which people wantonly murder and enslave in its name.

We on the right think the president’s and left’s position to be utterly absurd. So instead of fighting it, why don’t we take the absurdity to a whole new level and use the left’s own arguments to do so. read more

Podcast – Ken Cuccinelli Goes off on Mitch McConnell – News Flash: Ted Cruz is Hated

In this episode I discuss Senate Conservative Fund President Ken Cuccinelli’s outrage over Mitch McConnell’s cowardly behavior. He describes McConnell as having no backbone, which we all know to be true.

I also discuss the harsh treatment of my man Ted Cruz by Daily Show host, the genius, Trevor Noah and how Cruz should turn Noah’s idiotic comments into a winning campaign commercial.

In a short closing segment I expound on some little known facts regarding the area around San Bernardino – the site of the radical Islamist attack. read more

Uber Clashes With Cronyism and The Entitlement Society

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In a free society which has a free market economy, is there any reason a person shouldn’t be able to pick up a passenger in his or her own car and drive them to their destination for money? The passenger willingly makes the decision that it is safe to enter the vehicle, as does the driver of the passenger and they both agree on a price for the trip. That’s the free market and it is the crux of ride-sharing businesses like Uber and Lyft.

But of course we do not live in a free society nor do we have a free market economy – at least not in cities and states controlled by authoritarian liberal democrats who prefer government supported monopolies. They abhor the free market because, by definition, the market is free of their influence and meddling.

So as ride-sharing becomes more and more popular, governments and their crony partners-in-crime, the Unions, are stepping in to attempt to “control” these companies, or put them out of business.

Until the advent of these free market companies, taxis were the only game in town. One of my heroes, Walter E. Williams, wrote in August that in order to become a taxi operator in a place like New York City, a city commission, filled with bureaucrats on the take, must first grant you the privilege of purchasing a taxi license. Then that license must be purchased from an existing cab company for an astronomical fee of as much as $700,000 or more – and that’s for each vehicle. read more

Where is America’s Rear Base of Islamic Barbarity?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

For many moons, we on the right have been pushing for English as not just the national language of the United States, but the official language.

A common language is the tie that binds a nation together. Without it, we are left with little more than tiny foreign enclaves within a larger nation. And this has been a problem for decades both here and in Europe, as liberals have catered to and coddled non-English speaking immigrants.

It’s human nature to wish to live with those of like culture and there’s nothing wrong with it. But when the host nation does not require or even encourage the learning of a common language and culture, the eventuality can be damaging.

Lack of a common language is damaging not only to a country’s culture, with growing numbers unwilling to assimilate, but also to its national security – which we see playing out in Belgium right now.

Belgium, home of the Molenbeek district (terror central) in Brussels is a perfect example of this dysfunction. The country has no common language. It actually has three languages – Dutch, French and German – two being official, Dutch and French. About 60% speak Dutch (Flemish), 33% speak French and about 1% German. There’s also a smattering of Spanish, Italian, Greek and of course Arabic. Gee – I wonder where the greatest concentrations of Arabic speakers are. read more

Princeton Students See the Real Woodrow Wilson And They Don’t Like Him

by: the Common Constitutionalist

For practically the whole of the past century, President Woodrow Wilson has consistently ranked in the top ten of greatest U.S. presidents. One the fathers of modern-day progressivism, Wilson helped usher in the new era of anti-constitutional big government. All the collectivist/socialist things the left loves were embodied in Wilson. Yet his legacy, despite our insistence, has weathered the right’s attacks for decades. And believe you me, Wilson was an evil S.O.B. Want some proof? You may link here and here to see just how bad.

Yet no matter what we say – try as we may – we on the right have been unable to penetrate Wilson’s persona, much like Teddy/Franklin Roosevelt or LBJ. So for conservatives it is easy to just throw up our hands and say: “What will it take for you on the left to see how bad these guys really were?” Your heroes weren’t for equal rights. They weren’t for women’s rights and they sure didn’t fight for minority rights. Quite the opposite.

But, just as we may think of giving up – this occurs. Maybe some college liberals are beginning to realize who the real racists in our history have always been and I wonder if maybe these are the types of incidences that will begin to turn things around. It seems in almost all cases the pendulum of reason must swing too far one way before it is able to correct. read more

Is That What Trump Said?

2E9EE72D00000578-0-image-a-71_1447999855962

As you all know, I am not a Trump guy, but just as I came to the defense of Ben Carson as the press (and talking heads) lambaste him over his suggestion that the Chinese are in Syria, they, as well as every other lazy, ill-informed fool, are now murdering Trump over something he didn’t say. Everyone has taken one sound bite out of context, without any further examination of what was actually said and run with it as if it were gospel.  read more

Campbell Soup Has No Moral Compass

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In 2013 Campbell Soup goes Halal with approval from Hamas-linked ISNA.

For those unfamiliar, ISNA, The Islamic Society of North America is one of many American Islamic organizations who front for the Muslim Brotherhood, which means they do the bidding of the radical Brotherhood, which means they support terrorism and the conquest of the west, including America.

Halal approval or certification is provided by ISNA, which means Campbell Company pays ISNA or a subsidiary, a flat, monthly or quarterly fee for the halal certification. A portion of every dollar we spend for Campbell’s Soup, V8, Prego Sauces, Swanson products, Pepperidge Farm, etc. goes toward halal certification which is then funneled to various terrorist organizations that the Brotherhood controls. Here is a link to one of my earlier articles further explaining halal.

So Campbell made a business decision (I guess) to certify at least some of their products, figuring (again – I guess) it is a good way to crack the ever-expanding Muslim-American market. They are a private company and are welcome to do just that. read more
