Christian Baker Sentenced to Re-Education

from RedState:

An Administrative Law judge in Colorado named Robert Spencer has issued an extraordinary rule in the case of Masterpiece Cake Shop which refused to help two homosexuals make a mockery of marriage.

A Colorado baker found guilty of discrimination for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple must go through sensitivity training as part of his penance and rehabilitation. In December of last year, Administrative Law Judge Robert Spencer found Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop in the Denver suburb of Lakewood, guilty of discriminating against same-sex couple Dave Mullin and Charlie Craig when he told them in July 2012 that he couldn’t bake them a wedding cake because homosexual behavior conflicted with his Christian beliefs.

Two Men, Three Women, a Goat and a Baby

by: the Common Constitutionalist

For years now we conservatives have been warning of the slippery societal slope we’re on. You don’t have to be a “social conservative” or “values voter” to see it. Just look around.

From the increasing acceptance of the coarsening of our language, to the ever-increasing tolerance and acceptance of marijuana use, to the destruction of the institution of marriage as one man and one woman.

And that is what I wish to discuss. The purposeful destruction of the institution of conventional marriage and if unchecked and unchallenged, what it is guaranteed to lead to.

I may be wrong, and I don’t think I am, but every state that has passed a law and/or legally altered its Constitution to affirm the definition of marriage, did so by a vote of the people.

Most state votes affirmed conventional marriage overwhelmingly. In other words, the citizens know what marriage is and what it should remain as, but the federal black robed oligarchs that rule against the people don’t care about the vote, or the People’s right to govern themselves.

I personally don’t care who anyone marries, but this fight isn’t about conventional versus same-sex marriage. It never was. It was never about Johnny and Bobby declaring their love for one another. It’s always been about the destruction of marriage and the undermining of conventional values. read more

Obama Campaign Promise Being Fulfilled

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In 2008, on the campaign trail, Barack Obama vowed to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay Cuba. I have no doubt that this has stuck in his craw since then.

I contend that one way or the other King Barack is going to empty out that place and close it down. So much for Rush Limbaugh’s thriving Club Gitmo product line.

This move is part of the wind down and pull out of Afghanistan, a war Obama desperately wants to rid himself of, sooner than later, despite him saying years ago, that we should leave Iraq and concentrate on the good and worthy conflict in Afghanistan.

That’s one thing I do agree with – end the Afghan war and bring everyone home immediately. The United States no longer has any business over there or anywhere else, for that matter. We are incapable of the will that is necessary to win a war – so why get our troops killed and wounded due to modern America’s typically weak efforts. But I digress. read more

One More Reason to Admire Islam

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Kidnappings, slavery, the want to exterminate a whole race (the Jews) and cause the end of entire nations (Israel, USA), Sharia law, honor killings. The genocide of people of differing religions (mainly Christians) and this – FGM, Female Genital Mutilation.

Yes, all these things can be attributed to the religion of peace, Islam.

The terrible treatment of their own people has been well documented, but the way they treat their women is a tragedy.

Of all the abhorrent things done to Muslim girls/women, FGM is the worst. read more

Hillary on Terrorism

by: the Common Constitutionalist

What gave rise to Al Qaeda or modern terrorism in general? One could speculate or point fingers at people, certain situations, events or alliances, but at the end of the day, terrorists are almost exclusively individuals who have perverted a religion. Whether it’s the IRA, the Westboro Baptists or Al Qaeda, the founders/leaders of these groups have all decided that this is what God intended – that they are doing God’s work. At least that’s what they profess.

I added the Westboro Baptists because they are psychological terrorists, although as despicable as they may be, to date I don’t think they’ve killed any innocents.

Okay, so that’s how they get started. But what facilitates them, particularly Al Qaeda and radical Islamists?

Well, that one’s easy… Liberals. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s liberals and their unwillingness to recognize and call these groups what they are, radical Islamic terrorists.

When Major Nidal Hasan ran through Fort Hood shouting Allahu Akbar as he slaughtered unarmed soldiers – how again was that clear “Islamic terror” incident classified? Workplace violence! read more

The Liberal “States of the World”

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Recently Mark Levin suggested, as has Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and even little old me, to allow the liberals of this country to pick the states of their choosing and form their own leftist nation – The Liberal States of the World”.

Mark suggested that they pick 10 states, all move there, and have a ball. They can even pick the nicest states – the coastal ones, although with the sure onset of global warming, maybe not. We wouldn’t want all those lefties to be washed out to sea.

So let’s just say they will occupy both coasts and we conservatives will move into the crappy flyover states. We’ll even throw in Washington DC as a bonus.

They would now be free to do anything they want – enact any legislation – raise any tax – mandate any regulation and pack any court, with no unreasonable conservatives to stop them with their religious dogma.

They may rewrite the Constitution, or better yet, scrap the whole thing and replace it with FDR’s Second Bill of Rights.

If you’re unfamiliar with them or need a review, here are a few of the real standouts:

The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation.

The right of every family to a decent home.

The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health.

The right to adequate protection from economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.

The right to a good education.

Wow – where do I sign? That sounds great and completely reasonable and workable. It sounds like manna from heaven, except there is no heaven – so manna from Mother Earth. read more

The Rise of the “Sports Reich”

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It seems racism is alive and well. Or is it?

Of course I am, as is everyone, referring to the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team, Donald Sterling and his abhorrent racist tirade that his plasticized mistress/girlfriend recorded and then released to the public.

I’ve even heard a conspiracy theory floating around that some other party was interested in purchasing the team and this was a set up, and that the league may actually be able to force Sterling to sell his team.That seems a little far-fetched but not as far-fetched as the theory I’ve concocted – but you’ll have to read on for that one.

Welcome to the “Sports Reich”, where league officials, in concert with politicians and racial “bomb throwers” can force a private citizen to part with his property.

Now, if racism today is oh so prevalent as we have been made to believe, why the outrage? If  it were indeed commonplace – would this not be just another ho-hum whitey incident?

But his statements were/are not run-of-the-mill, are they? They are not “commonplace”. In fact, most of us (conservatives) have “evolved” to be relatively colorblind.

From what’s come out about Sterling, it seems that the sports community and certainly the basketball community have known this guy was, as he still is today, a dirtbag 30 years ago.

Yet the Los Angeles chapter of the NAALCP (National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People) was set to give Sterling a lifetime achievement award. You don’t think they knew who this guy was long ago?

Darn right they did. But until their hand was forced – money evidently trumps racism – as long as it’s just quiet racism.

Now let’s juxtapose the nationally hysterical outrage of the Sterling incident to new information pertaining to Benghazi.

At the same time Sterling is garnering all this useless media attention, the truth about Benghazi is finally being brought to light and the evidence is proving that we were indeed right all along.

Of course the Benghazi massacre was never about the video. It was always a cover-up, about politics and protecting our saintly president prior to the election. This situation is beyond despicable and the Sterling incident should pale in comparison.

Yet I don’t hear the outrage from the media. After all, they were lied to about Benghazi also.

Yes, 4 brave Americans were slaughtered, three of which are heroes, but we must remember that an orchestrated terrorist attack doesn’t rise to the level of racist remarks by some old fart who owns a basketball team.

As we are fast discovering, there is no greater evil, no more heinous act that can be perpetrated by a human being than a white man speaking ill of a protected class. Whether it be Muslim, homosexual, or a “person of color”.

Not Jew hating John Kerry’s anti-Semitic remarks, or pick from any number of anti-Christian rants. Not the “radical Muslim community” who hates everyone – Jews, Christians, homosexuals, etc.

Now, if I were a conspiracy nut, I would offer this up.

The NBA, the owners and players have all known, for a long time, this guy was a racist a-hole. They did nothing about it.

Then one day the Obama folks come-a-callin. They meet with Sterling’s skanky mistress or girlfriend or whatever she is.

They offer her a big payday, covert of course, if she does them a favor. She agrees.

The Obama gang, knowing that the true story of Benghazi is going to be released and can no longer be contained, ask her if she would set up Sterling by taping one of his racist tirades and release it to the press. Again, she agrees and does her duty.

Upon release, the Obama folks know that in the TMZ society we currently live in, that salacious story would suck up all the oxygen, leaving no time or interest in discussing what a despicable bunch of scoundrels we have running our country.

It couldn’t have been scripted any better if it were crafted by the writers of 24, which begins on Monday, and I can hardly contain my excitement over.

Yes, it’s a wacky conspiracy theory, but is it any more far-fetched than a dopey video causing a well orchestrated terrorist raid?

Oh, and by the way – we’ve all heard that UCLA was so incensed by the rant, the school is refusing a $3 million endowment from Sterling.

Interestingly, it has no plans to refund millions given it by financiers of Islamic Jihad like Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

I guess their cash is okay.

Steyn on Boehner Immigration Reform

from the Daily Caller

House Speaker John Boehner does not understand that immigration reform is a way for Democrats to change the electorate, according to conservative commentator Mark Steyn.

Reacting to House Majority Leader John Boehner’s recent mockery of his Republican colleagues’ intransigence on immigration reform, Steyn argued that Boehner is missing what everyone else can see. read more
