Video Podcast – Saving a Life in the #MeToo Era – It Takes a Village to Solve the Measles Crisis

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

We’ve all seen studies and polls showing how younger men and women are dating less and it’s because of the whole #MeToo crap.

Sure a lot of the #MeToo stuff is legit, but a lot isn’t too.

And what has this movement potentially wrought? Well, a new study finds that women are more likely to die if they have a cardiac arrest in public because people fear performing CPR on them could be seen as sexual assault.

And California Senate passes bill to end fake vaccine exemptions: Only state health officials will decide who skips shots if it is signed into law.

This is yet another case, in my opinion, of never letting a good crisis go to waste. And it’s yet another example of the slippery slope of more government intrusion and overstep.

But we must always remember: It takes a village to raise a child, and eventually make all parenting decisions. read more

Video Podcast – The Immigration Migration – The Great Abortion Debate

by Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist:

The federal government is planning on dumping up to 1,000 illegal immigrants in two Florida Counties every month. Governor Ron DeSantis had no idea this was going happen. He was given no warning.

I discuss just how wrong this is and how it can possibly still be happening under president Trump.

Democrats are in a panic over several recent State abortion restriction laws.

I discuss the nonsensical arguments of the dems and just why they are in such a panic over an issue they claim is a slam dunk for the left. read more

Video Podcast – A Thousand Guns in Bel-Air

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A 57-year-old man identified in court records as the longtime companion of Los Angeles real estate mogul Cynthia Beck was behind bars for several hours overnight after police seized more than 1,000 guns — including some that authorities allege were fully automatic — from a home in Bel-Air.

I discuss Girard Saenz’s gun collection, the fact that he’s a licensed gun dealer and collector and the old gun he owns, how is it a crime to own so many guns, California’s gun laws, the Second Amendment and what caused the authorities to raid the home. read more

Video Podcast – The Problem with the 24 Hour News Cycle

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Every hour of every day has to be filled with new content, because the average reader has the attention span of a three year old. Case in point:

This is from Yahoo News:

“A 34-year-old Louisiana teacher is accused of raping her 10-year-old male student.”

But is it true? It may be, but so far the incident has just been alleged, and not been verified. But what if isn’t true. Her mugshot has already been all over the internet. If the allegation is false, where does she go to get her reputation back? The internet is replete with false allegations which have ruined lives, mainly due to the alleged perpetrator being tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. read more

Video Podcast – Will Trump send Illegals to Sanctuary Cities

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Doubtless we’ve all heard of Trump’s threat to bus thousands of illegals and refugees to sanctuary cities and States. He says that they are always saying what a benefit to the community these “immigrants” are. Mayors and Governors alike claim that all should be welcome, without preconditions. The more the merrier. Immigrants are what make these cities great and all that clap-trap. The new mantra is “no human is illegal.”

So growing increasingly and understandably frustrated, Trump has decided to call the sanctuary cities on the insistence of their “come one, come all” policy.

And the left is utterly unhinged over Trump’s threat, which came without warning.

But is Trump serious about this, or is this just thrown out as a campaign issue, or other, to force the dems hand? read more

Video Podcast – Democrat Illegal Alien Platform – So Many Candidates

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Democrat Illegal Alien Platform

A couple of the many dems vying for the presidential nod are unveiling immigration platforms. Kamala Harris and Julian Castro try to outdo each other by pushing the ball further left.

Too Many Candidates

There are currently 25 to 30 democrats vying for the nomination for President. They can’t all think they can win, so why are they running? I discuss the possibly that some are just looking to capitalize on the title of former presidential candidate and parlay it into a second career. read more

Podcast – The Electoral College – They Brought it Up – Not Us

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Okay – here we go again with the Electoral College. Why do we have to keep talking about the antiquated Electoral College?

But we on the right didn’t bring it up. The democrats continue to. I could be discussing other stuff, and really, who cares about the Electoral College. It’s dry and boring and does it really matter anyway?

Well, we better care and care a lot, because if the left wins the propaganda war and eventually somehow amends the Constitution or something, this country is finished. That’s not hyperbole – it’s cold hard fact.

If you want the Founders explanation of why it’s needed, read Federalist Paper, number 68, written by Alexander Hamilton.

I’m just doing it in modern day bad English.

So as long as the left keeps trying to ram pure democracy, mob rule, down our throats, we have to continue to at least try to educate those who might listen to the logic and beauty of our election system. read more

Video Podcast – Let’s Talk National Emergencies

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

According to the Federal Register, 58 national emergencies have been declared since the National Emergency Act of 1976 was signed into law by President Gerald Ford.

And 31 have been annually renewed and are currently still in effect, as listed in the Federal Register.

I discuss the latest emergency act that president Trump recently declared, comparing it to others declared by four previous presidents. read more

Video Podcast – A Border Cable – Green is the New Red Deal

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A Texas Republican Congressman, Will Hurd, has an idea to run fiber optic cable from one end of the country to the other, under ground, to detect people crossing our border illegally. This is in lieu of, or instead of a border wall.

Great plan. The cable won’t stop anyone from crossing, but will simply alert border patrol that someone, or group of someones has.

The “Green New Deal” that AOC and others have proposed is nothing more than a new communist manifesto. It’s not Democratic or any other kind of socialism. It’s straight-up communism. And what does their economic program have to do with global warming? Absolutely nothing. read more
