America – A Bastion of Socialism

By: the Common Constitutionalist

“Well, this is it. The last bastion of pure capitalism left on Earth. Buy low, sell high. Fear? That’s the other guy’s problem. Nothing you have ever experienced will prepare you for the absolute carnage you are about to witness. Super Bowl, World Series – they don’t know what pressure is. In this trading placesbuilding, it’s either kill or be killed. You make no friends in the pits and you take no prisoners,” Louis Winthorpe III – from the classic 1983 movie Trading Places.

Winthorpe (Dan Aykroyd) was describing to his partner Billy Ray (Eddie Murphy – when he was still funny), the atmosphere he was to encounter in the trading pits of the Commodities Exchange in New York City. How oddly appropriate that this “bastion of pure capitalism” was housed in the World Trade Center.

This is what we think of when we envision Wall Street. This is what we’ve grown up watching – Quintessentially American capitalism.

But of course that was during the dark years of Reaganomics and Trickle Down. Oooohhh! Just think thinking of that decade gives socialists and weak-kneed liberals the vapors. read more

Doomsday for Conservatives

By: the Common Constitutionalist

If it’s not End Times for the world, it certainly may be for conservative America.

First – the world. Just take a look around.

Look at what the former KGB operative and current supreme leader of mother Russia is doing. You may recall last week that Vladimir “Pooty-Poot” Putin ordered two Russian Bear bombers to buzz Great Britain. RAF Typhoon fighters had to be scrambled to chase them off. Awarship few days earlier, a Russian warship had to be escorted by the U.K. military through the English Channel. I’m sure it just made a wrong turn at Iceland. At the same time the British government is discussing cuts in their defense spending. They might want to rethink that strategy.

Putin is on the march and actively testing the west’s ability and fortitude to repel him should he decide to begin to take more territory. This Russian situation is a lot more serious than is being advertised. One stupid mistake from some overzealous official on either side – and the missiles start flying.

Then there are the many faces of terror that threaten the entire west. Personally, I think most, if not all of Europe is doomed, owing not only to their spineless “go along to get along” attitude toward Muslims in general, but also their admittance of so many Muslims into their countries. I am certainly not the only one who feels this way. read more

Three Words Sum up Obama – Dithering and Risk Aversion

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Just yesterday the UK Daily Mail confirmed that Obama and his administration were given actionable intelligence as to the whereabouts of not only the beheaded Americans James Foley and Steve Sotloff, but also American aid worker Kayla Mueller, quite some time ago.

It has come to light that British intelligence knew in June of 2014 the locations of where ISIS was holding hostages. Worse yet, foleyit is been reported that the French also shared information about hostage locations as early as March 2014 – long before the beheadings.

The Daily Mail reports that “The United Kingdom gave the Obama administration intelligence in June 2014 about where in Syria the ISIS terror army was holding its American captives, but the White House dithered and missed its opportunity to rescue them.”

The report asserts that both “U.S. and British officials said the administration sat on the information for nearly a month before launching a military raid…” Yet, by waiting until July to finally mount a rescue, they lost their window of opportunity, and by then, as we know, the hostages had been moved. read more
