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

Bloomberg Finances Another Anti-Gun Group

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Last week I received an e-mail from my good [email protected] regarding Michael Bloomberg’s latest attempt at confiscating all our guns.

The e-mail blast said that Bloomberg will be spending $50 million on gun reform. Now since I don’t know what “gun reform” is I read on, asking myself whether I believe my guns needed reforming?

It turns out that the e-mail blast was not focused on Bloomberg’s efforts, but one of the many wack job organizations that he will be funding with his $50 million.

The organization, and particularly its founder, that MoveOn.org was focused on is “Moms Demand Action for Guns Sense in America” and its founder Shannon Watts.

MoveOn describes Ms. Watts as a supermom, who evidently has time for her five children and also to fight the evils of “gun violence”. They describe her as a force of nature communicator and the NRA’s worst nightmare. Ooh – scary! read more

Five Black Americas

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

There sure have been a lot of cries of racism thrown about recently, from Elijah Cummings trying to obstruct his own congressional committee (now we know why, the dirty crook), to Obama and Holder blaming racism when the sky isn’t blue enough, to the old sadsack Hank Aaron who seems to think the fire hoses will be turned on him any minute, even though that was the work of the first black president, Bill Clinton’s mentor, Bull Connor.

 

All this nonsense got me to thinking about the different kinds of black Americans.

 

Now before anyone flies off the politically correct handle, let me explain.

 

First, what I will not do is apologize for daring to even broach the topic. I’m not going to exclaim, “I am not a racist” as too many guilty white folk do. That’s a copout and it also inherently accepts the liberal premise that if you don’t say that, you are automatically a racist – no question. Well, I reject that premise and the default position.

 

I will also not claim that some of my best friends are blacks. They are not, although a few friends I work out with are not just black but are real African-Americans – one originally from Nigeria and two from the Sudan. All good guys! So there! read more

Jeb “Love Train” Bush Is the Man for Me

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

For years I’ve been railing against those who describe something as a “hate crime”. I mean really. When you think about it; aren’t all crimes hate crimes?

 

If you shoot a black man dead, is it any more hateful than shooting a white man dead? Is the black guy any deader than the white guy? No, of course not.

 

If a white boy is beaten by a group of kids, whether they be black or white, Asian or Indian, it matters not. But if a black kid is beaten by white kids, it is considered a hate crime.

 

It just doesn’t make any sense. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: aren’t all crimes hate crimes? Really, who’s ever heard of a love crime?

 

Well, I guess I’ll have to stop saying that, because there evidently are love crimes, according to the soon to be GOP presidential candidate Jeb “Love Train” Bush. Or maybe we should call him Jeb “Underground Love Railroad” Bush. read more

What’s Next? Lesbian Burial Grounds

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

If the United States wishes to be truly progressive – we must look to Europe. Yes, Europe will show us the way to true utopian socialism where gas is $10 a gallon and everything that isn’t or is nailed down is taxed. They can show us how to be more accepting of Islamic culture so that all our cities can be overrun with those of the Muslim faith. Where whole swaths of once great European metropolises follow Sharia law and become infidel no-go zones.

 

Yes, for all these reasons, we must look across the pond to countries like Germany, where over a century ago, good academic progressives in America learned their craft – fashioning the grand collective.

 

But wait… there’s more, that is, if we wish to achieve true politically correct enlightenment.

 

On April 1, the AP reported (I suspect rather gleefully) that, “A new burial area for lesbians only is being inaugurated in a two century old cemetery in the German capital, Berlin, this weekend.” read more

The UN Human Rights Council Is a Joke

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

The UNHRC, the United Nations Human Rights Council, met last week for a session in Geneva.

 

Before discussing the UNHRC, I’m going to rant for a bit about the UN in general.

 

Can we, once and for all, just dissolve the United Nations?! They have proven, time after time, that they are no friend of the United States and certainly the enemy of our only true ally in the Middle East, Israel.

 

Over the years, we’ve paid the majority of the dues and the UN building itself sits upon some of the world’s most prized real estate.

 

Yet this odd collection of nanny socialists and despots continually blames us and especially Israel for most of the world’s problems. read more
