Podcast – Money in Politics – Think Progress and Congressional Orientation

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

ThinkProgress wrote an article regarding the corrupting influence of money in Washington D.C. In the article they included thoughts by incoming democrat congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as well as a few other democratic socialists.

She expressed her displeasure with the freshman orientation being run by corporate lobbyists. I agree. But she and her fellow socialists thought they should also have heard from labor leaders and activists. I don’t agree.

I share my thoughts on the article, Ms. Cortez and corruption in Washington. read more

Video Podcast – George H W Bush – Porn in Prison – Stealing Elections in California

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

George H W Bush passed away a few days ago after living a full life and accomplishing much. But all that pales in comparison with the person that he was. By all measure, George Bush was a good man and that is far important than politics or accomplishment.

Is porn in prison a constitutional right? Well, 58 inmates at an Iowa prison seem to think so. They are suing the State for the right to continue to view pornography in private rooms set aside expressly for that purpose.

Stealing elections from Republicans is becoming commonplace in California. Republicans were leading, some by wide margins even a day after the polls closed. Yet all democrats in these contested districts magically came back to win every race. read more

Video Podcast – Climate Hype is back in Vogue – the Midterm Debacle

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The Atlantic.com recently wrote of the origin of climate science. Interestingly, it coincides with the Western industrial revolution and Western Imperialism. Also interesting is the fact that we in the West are the only ones concerned with man-caused climate change. The rest of the world is just trying to survive.

Also, a short recap of the cheaters trying to steal the last contested midterm elections. read more

Video Podcast – The Pipe Bomber – I Succumbed to #MeToo

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Okay, the inept pipe bomber, Cesar Sayoc. Yep, he is apparently a registered Republican.

That’s true. But the more we learn about this dirt bag, the less Republican he becomes.

He may say he’s a Republican, but his thoughts and actions betray him. I examine them and conclude he has much more in common with the radical left and democrats than Trump and the Republicans.

The #MeToo movement started out innocently enough and did some good. But it has devolved into movement where it seems everything is now considered harassment.

Even a simple joke. I began to load a joke onto my website but stopped. This movement has now caused me to question whether a harmless, albeit slightly sexist joke would land me in hot water. And that’s the shame of an otherwise helpful movement being co-opted by radicals. read more

Podcast – Blasey Ford Gets an Award – Judge Meddles with Gun Rights

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Christine Blasey Ford is nominated for a distinguished achievement award by her alma mater, UNC, Chapel Hill. Not for her work, who according to the professor nominating her, is not at all that extraordinary, but because she spoke “her truth.” Not the truth – just her truth. And today that’s apparently good enough.

A Montana State judge granted to the city of Missoula, the right to require additional background checks for gun purchasers within their city limits, despite the State of Montana insisting they have no right to do so. read more

Video Podcast – Schools Need a Lesson on the Fourth Amendment

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A civil liberties attorney has a problem with two Indiana public high schools. The schools announced that they will randomly drug test 10 students who wish to engage in extracurricular activities, for 10 drugs.

The attorney claims this is a Constitutional violation under the Fourth Amendment.

Surprise, surprise – I agree, because it is and in today’s podcast I explain the reason why. read more

Video Podcast – Kavanaugh Circus a Microcosm of Both Dysfunctional Political Parties

By: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss seemingly a number of topics, from the Ford – Kavanaugh debacle, to her specifically, to the Republicans and the democrats, to elections, to who controls government, Trump and Pence and that they’re really all the intertwined

Watching this Senate hearing and the soap opera surrounding it is indeed a microcosm of both dysfunctional political parties and our government as a whole. read more

Video Podcast – Trump Worse than Hitler – Gay Federal Reserve – Feinstein October Surprise

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

An establishment Republican “strategist” went on MSNBC to decry president Trump by basically saying that if he had a time machine, he would rather travel back and change Trump rather than stop Adolf Hitler.

The Federal Reserve now has its first openly gay female bank head. Hooray for the Fed!

Senator Diane Feinstein is attempting to “October Surprise” Trump’s supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with a letter accusing him of sexual misconduct in high school. Better late than never, eh Di-Fi. read more

Podcast – It’s a Social Justice Weekend

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yes, it’s an all social justice podcast, as I discuss Nike’s decision to promote Colin Kaepernick and his bogus “Stand for Something” platform. I explain that while this may seem like a bad business decision, it really isn’t. Nike understands its target audience, and it isn’t those guys burning their shoes.

In part two of social justice weekend, I discuss the reboot of the `90s television series, Party of Five. But this time around, it’s decidedly NOT all-American. What a surprise, that a Disney channel would promote illegal immigration. read more

Video Podcast – Apologies to Immigrants – Take a Knee

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Let’s talk about another example of democrat symbolism over substance.

California state legislators passed a resolution demanding that president Trump and Congress apologize for separating families at the border. But would an apology be just a first step to something more?

A federal district court judge, administering the oath of citizenship, tells the new Americans to “take a knee” in protest. Yes, that’s what a citizen wants hear. Welcome to America new citizen. Too bad the country you chose is so awful. read more
