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

Video Podcast – You can put a Price on a Human Life

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

And that price is not nearly as much as you might think.

Last Saturday, lil-Chelsea Clinton spoke at a #RiseUpforRoe event in New York, where she and other pro-abortion leftist women rallied against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Today I discuss what she said and why it is just so absurd, and frankly just wrong. read more

Podcast – Jim Acosta – Spies not from Russia – DACA to Restart

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Before I begin speaking about Jim Acosta, I quickly discuss a new play about Anne Frank, where the Nazis are replaced with ICE agents. Yep – that’s right.

Don’t blame Jim Acosta for trying to shape the news. Blame Walter Cronkite, the once most trusted man in America.

Senator Diane Feinstein had a spy on her payroll for 20 years. Oh, you haven’t heard. Maybe because she’s a democrat and the spy was not Russian, but Chinese.

A lower court federal judge is demanding the restart of the DACA program. I discuss why he has no authority to make such a demand. read more

Video Podcast – Korean War Remains Returned – GDP Growth

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The remains of multiple of U.S. troops killed in the Korean War more than six decades ago are headed back to America now after North Korean officials turned them over to military officials, the White House announced Thursday night. In all, 55 cases of remains were return so far.

And you probably noticed the United Nations banner wrapped around the crates rather than the American flag. There’s a reason for that. It ain’t a good one, but it’s America’s fault. More precisely, it’s an American President’s fault.

And let’s talk GDP growth, and why it may end up being a problem. Why? Three words: The Federal Reserve. read more

Video Podcast – Trumps Words are Just That – Words

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

It’s patently obvious that both the left and establishment right hate president Trump.

Over the years, with practically every other politician, we have accepted that what they say should be taken with a massive grain of salt.

But now all of a sudden, we’re expected to treat Trump differently. Now every “word” he utters evidently carries the weight of the world. Well, I’m here to tell you – that’s crap.

All of us should have figured out by now that Trump just says stuff, maybe strategically, or merely to get a rise out of some. Because of the visceral hatred they have of him, they will never cut him any slack like they’ve done with so many before him.

Well, they’re just words folks. Time to get over it.
