Today – Leftists Have Georgia on Their Minds

All eyes, politically speaking, will be on a certain special Congressional election today.

It’s Georgia’s Sixth Congressional district – the one vacated by Tom Price when he stepped down to become President Trump’s Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary.

This election would not otherwise be of importance or the slightest bit intriguing, but this is not just any election. Oh, it won’t change the make-up of the House, or unseat the Republicans. Nothing that dramatic – at least not to normal people.

This election is being overly hyped because this is a red district in a red State, which may actually end up being won by a Democrat. And this, as is being broadcast by virtually all left wing media sources, is to be proof of the American voter’s absolute repudiation of Trump.

That’s the bottom line – that’s what it’s all about, and only that.

The left is salivating over the potential victory, much like they were just before Hillary Clinton flamed out and crashed in a fiery ball of death.

So what’s the big deal anyway? What chance does a liberal Democrat (as if there is any other type of Democrat anymore) have in winning a reliable Republican district?

Normally none, but the candidate, Jon Ossoff, is said to have a good shot at taking the seat – because – you know – everyone now hates Trump. read more

The Website, The Nation, has a Message for the Left

Some on the left are concerned about the praise being heaped on President Trump over his single bombing campaign in Syria. No, it’s not the praise from the right, but coming from liberals who, like democrat politicians, normally have nothing constructive to say regarding Trump.

Now ultra-leftist sites like The Nation.com are worried about this new found respect of Trump, even if it is temporary, as demonstrated by an article entitled, “Too Many of Trump’s Liberal Critics Are Praising His Strike on Syria.”

It seems that The Nation feels compelled to remind fellow travelers that Trump is the enemy and you never say anything good about the enemy.

They insist that if one from the left shows favor toward Trump on this single action, they must therefore “account for what comes next.” read more

WND Exclusive – Sanctuary Cities Enable Yet More Murders by Illegals

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Technically speaking, Worcester, Massachusetts, is not a sanctuary city.

Sandra Hehir

Yet Mayor Joe Petty and other city leaders have repeatedly said Worcester would not collaborate with the federal government in rounding up and deporting immigrants here illegally.

 In January, Mayor Petty reiterated to a reporter that, “You don’t have to say you are a sanctuary city to protect people.” Does this really need any translation? Of course not. It’s just ridiculous semantics – like an assassin saying that he doesn’t murder people. Sure, he shoots people for a living, but it’s not his fault if they die. read more

Cinco de Mayo – More Like Cinco de Cancelled

The great refrain of the left, the establishment right, and anyone who does not understand human nature and dynamism, has been: “What are you going to do – deport all 11 million illegals?”

Yes we’ve heard it for years. Funny how the 11 million number never changes. But anyway.

The question they all ask is set up to be rhetorical – like it‘s not really a question. To the small minds on the left and the defeatists of the right, it is rhetorical. Of course we won’t and/or can’t round them all up. Therefore the only other choice is to let them all stay.

It, as the smart people say, is a binary choice. There is no other option. And then along comes president Trump.

Now I don’t know if Trump is student of history or not, but what he is doing, or rather authorizing, is beginning to already pay dividends. Many news outlets on both sides of the political spectrum are reporting illegals getting the message that the new sheriff will round you up like so much cattle and run you back across the border.

Of course this is not the administration’s stated policy, but who cares. The press’s misinformation campaign appears to be working. And if you are a staunch anti-illegal immigration advocate like me, you’re as happy to see this as am I. And it just keeps getting better. read more

The Lefts Special Ability to See Racism

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I find it fascinating that the only culture not worth preserving is Western culture, and particularly American culture.

No matter how long I lived in – pick a country – say – Mexico, I would never be afforded the title of hyphenated countryman. Regardless of my insistence, I would never be considered American-Mexican, or American Hispanic. No one would come to my aid and insist that my American heritage must be preserved – that it would add to or somehow strengthen Mexican culture. There would be no protests, no marches, no picket signs, no pressing two for English. And those in Mexico would have little patience with me flying the American flag. They would expect me to assimilate, and rightly so.

Yet, as we are well aware, there is no such expectation in America. Quite the opposite. We are the ones who are expected to accept and celebrate everyone else’s culture but our own, allowing them to live as they would like, as permanent house guests. This, we are told, is multiculturalism and is indeed to be celebrated as somehow strengthening our nation.

Because of this we are slowly losing our identity, our culture – what it means to be American.

Recently, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, landed himself in hot water with the liberal elite for stating this very thing. He was interviewed  by the poster-boy of leftist elitism, CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Cuomo immediately began attacking King regarding a tweet by the Republican in support of a comment made by Dutch politician Geert Wilders. read more

WND Weekly Exclusive – Leftist Dogma and Steve Bannon’s ‘Deconstruction’

A few days ago, Salon.com, one of the more leftist websites you will ever read, assuming you would ever read it, posted a piece entitled, “Steve Bannon says Trump’s Cabinet of billionaires has been ‘selected for a reason … deconstruction.’”

The article included a rebroadcast of a session at CPAC with Chief of Staff Reince Preibus and Steve Bannon, Trump’s senior White House adviser.

Salon wrote, “Bannon confirmed that Trump’s Cabinet appointments aren’t there to govern. They’re there to destroy.” Well, that’s fairly chilling. Why would they say that, and what is the left really afraid of? read more

Whistleblowing by Design

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Well – it looks like it was all by design. Throughout his entire presidency, Obama and his most transparent administration of all time has had it out for whistleblowers.

In March, 2015, the Guardian posted an article stating that, “Since Barack Obama entered the White House in 2009, his government has waged a war against whistleblowers and official leakers. On his watch, there have been eight prosecutions under the 1917 Espionage Act – more than double those under all previous presidents combined.”

However, they also went on to explain that it’s not like Obama prosecuted all leakers. Those “leaks” from high-level officials like Leon Panetta, John Brennan or even New York Times reporter, David Sanger, were all given a pass.

Bottom line – if you were favored by Obama and the leak would make the President look good, no harm would come to you.

But then in January, a week prior to Trump’s inauguration, it seemed everything changed. The Washington Times reported that, “President Barack Obama— with about a week left in his presidency — has all of a sudden shown interest in protecting government whistleblowers and the inspector general community.” read more

A Day Without Illegal Immigrants

You may have heard that yesterday was nationwide, “A Day Without Immigrants” day.

NPR Reported  that, “In cities around America, thousands of construction companies, restaurants and other businesses are bracing for ‘A Day Without Immigrants,’ a combination boycott/strike that highlights the contributions of immigrants to U.S. business and culture.”

“The movement is a response to President Trump’s immigration agenda, which includes a pledge to seal the U.S. border with Mexico and a travel ban on citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries (which is now on hold),” NPR added.

Demonstrations in many major cities throughout the U.S. took place. By sheer coincidence, most of the cities involved, just happen to be of the sanctuary persuasion.

Interestingly, and 100% predictably – of the dozen or so articles I read regarding the “massive” walkouts, from construction companies to schools and restaurants, not one even attempted to make a distinction between legal and illegal immigration. read more

Trump’s Travel Expenses Should be Scrutinized as Obama’s Were

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We on the right complained of the incredible expense over the years of Obama’s travel, and rightly so.

For eight long years the U.S. economy struggled while King Barack and the Royal family jetted off to wherever they liked, incurring millions of dollars of expense for every trip.

And we chided him for his callousness – that he should lead by example – and why can’t he and his family just utilize the fully equipped Presidential retreat, Camp David as his predecessors have done?

This is our money we said – not his that he is recklessly wasting. And in the end, the final tally for Obama travel was a truly staggering amount.

On December 29, 2016, Breitbart reported  that, “Taxpayers footed the bill for $96 million in mostly personal travel expenses for President Obama and his family over the eight years Obama has occupied the White House.”

Judicial Watch stated that, “documents from both the Secret Service and the Air Force relating to Obama travel expenses, bring the known total over the past eight years to $96,938,882.51…”

Just shy of $100 million in travel expenses! That’s incredible and sickening. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive – Democrats: The Wackier They Get the More We Win

Think about just how bad your message must be if you still can’t win elections, even with virtually everything stacked in your favor.

The Democrats have had the television and print media in their pockets for decades. Hollywood has been firmly behind them – even producing programming wholly designed to promote the left’s candidate, as in the TV show “Madam Secretary.” Save for a few instances, they’ve had leftist judges and courts consistently rule in their favor regarding election law.

They’ve been able to divide the nation into victimized groups, by way of race, creed and gender – informing each, or rather lying to them, that they cannot succeed without Democratic help. read more
