Podcast – Illegals Get Free College

Today I discuss two articles from the College Fix which explain how both DePaul and Emory Universities are developing programs to allow illegal aliens to attend the schools for free, or at least at drastically reduced levels. And the fun and fair part is that the rest of the student body at DePaul will have to pay additional fees to allow it. Isn’t that great.

So if you’re an American citizen, or even a legal international student you will be expected to pay extra – on top of the skyrocketing tuition you already pay. But that’s fair, because as I explain, it’s every illegal’s right to a free college education. read more

Congress Should Demand a Registry of Nationally Approved Words

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

A naughty word can get you in deep do-do these days. It may even get you banned for life. Even if there is no proof that you uttered it.

Oh, I’m not speaking of George Carlin’s famous 1972 skit, “The Seven words you can never say on Television.” Those, by today’s ever-devolving standards, are relative tame, and from I’ve heard, at least five have made it into many an Americans’ everyday vernacular.

No, I’m talking about really offensive words and phrases. Words like the other ‘F’ word – as in f*g, rhymes with gag. Or the ‘G’ word – as in g*y – rhymes with hay. I guess we’re allowed to say that. But beware to use it only to express something positive, for telling a classmate that their outfit looks “so gay” can and will get you suspended. Context is key.

And then there is the granddaddy of them all – the ‘N’ word. As we know, this is an especially caustic term. And I agree. It’s an awful word, which should never be used – by anyone. But yet it is – and quite often. It’s quite common to hear one black man use the ‘N’ word when speaking to another black man. So common has it become, that it seems almost requisite to use the term in rap and hip-hop music, videos and film. I guess the use of it is supposed to make the user feel like a bad mo-fo, and not a woefully ignorant moron.

But it’s just a word, like the millions of others we use. That may be, but don’t get caught being white and using the ‘N’ word. That one word, as well as other terms to describe blacks derogatorily can get you thrown out of a sports stadium and banned for life. read more

WND Exclusive – Why is this ‘Unaborted Starlet’ so Depressed?

Hollywood actress Jessica Chastain was one of Variety’s Power of Women honorees at the magazine’s luncheon last Friday, in support of her chosen cause, Planned Parenthood. She was also interviewed by Variety on a not-so wide range of topics. By that I mean it was just whining about how tough women have it – and oh – how scary President Trump is. In other words, the usual liberal pablum we’ve come to expect from spoiled overpaid Hollywood geniuses.

Variety: “It’s 2017, and we’re still talking about how Hollywood doesn’t treat women the same as men. Why is this still an issue?”

Chastain: “It’s depressing in terms of everything. It’s depressing in terms of women directors. But I think the problem is not just that. Yes, we need female filmmakers. … There’s a huge audience out there that wants stories about women. If you have a film that’s from a feminine point of view and 90 percent of the critics are men, that’s not diversity in that industry.” read more

Podcast – New Immigration Guidelines – Harvard Says Gender Can Change Daily

The new immigration guidelines have been announced. No, not for America – for Australia. The island continent/nation has decided it has had enough and has modified its citizenship test and guidelines to stress assimilation. Among other things, they have the nerve to insist that in order to become an Australian citizen, immigrants must demonstrate the ability to speak, write and understand English. Imagine that. The Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnball adds that Australian citizenship should be honored, cherished and a privilege.

Segment two may cause a mental melt-down, as Harvard claims it to be a scientific fact that there are more than two sexes – and that the office of BLGTQ student life insists that gender is so fluid as to change as often as daily. They’ve even published, at school expense, a gender diversity guide that says so. read more

Recalling the Preventable Tragedy of Extortion 17

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The catastrophe at the compound in Benghazi, Libya has been well documented – books, movies, etc. Needless to say, there aren’t too many Americans who aren’t familiar with attack that killed four Americans, and the subsequent cover-up. To this day, no one has been held to account. Not Obama, Hillary, Susan Rice, etc.

Yet recently we were reminded of another entirely preventable event which took the lives of 38 fighters, 30 of which were American and 17 were U.S. Navy SEALs. The 17 included one officer and 9 senior enlisted – 7 Chiefs, 1 Senior and 1 Master Chief Petty Officer. Trust me when I say these gentlemen have been missed – not only to their loved ones, but operationally as well.

Sara Carter at Circa.com recounts the attack on Extortion 17, the August, 2011 downing of a Chinook helicopter gunship, and the greatest single day loss of Special Operations lives in American history. Mark Levin also highlighted this on his radio show the other evening.

Sara interviewed Retired Air Force Capt. Joni Marquez, who had a bird’s eye view of the whole tragic event – an event, which according to Marquez, was infinitely preventable if not for the ridiculous Rules of Engagement (ROEs) that have plagued our military from Vietnam to the present. However, under Obama, our warfighters had been particularly hamstrung.

Marquez told Carter that she was part of the aircrew of an Air Force AC-130 gunship in Afghanistan, when they received an order “to fly close-in air support above Afghanistan’s dangerous Tangi Valley, in Wardak Province, assisting troops with the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment who were being fired on by eight heavily armed Taliban insurgents.” read more

WND Exclusive – COULD A TEXT BRING MANSLAUGHTER CONVICTION?

Sticks and Stones may Break my Bones but Words Will Land Me in the Slammer

We all know the old saying that involves the following scenario. Johnny gets in trouble because he went along with something stupid perpetrated by Bobby and Billy.

To this his parents ask Johnny, “If they all jumped off a bridge, would you join them,” or, “If Billy asked you to steal a car, would you?” As parents, we all hope the answer would be obviously no on both counts.

Yet if Johnny did steal a car or jump off a bridge, we parents should question the sanity of our own child. We could hardly blame Bobby, Billy, or their parents. These acts of stupidity rest squarely on the shoulders of Johnny and his parents.

Ahh – but those were the good old days, when Americans were actually accountable for their own actions. Remember those days? Good times, good times. read more

Podcast – Harvard University may be the Most Leftist College in America

Upon returning from a college event with my son and seeing some of the leftist clubs represented there, I decided to dedicate a podcast to some of these radical ideals.

It took me no more than 10 minutes on a single website, The College Fix, to find four separate articles, involving only Harvard – demonstrating what a leftist swamp it has come to be.

What I discovered is what I had already assumed – that if one is a conservative, you best not set foot on the campus of Harvard University. read more

WND Exclusive – Now We Need a College Degree to Parent?

Last week the Washington Post reported that the District of Columbia will be the first in the nation “to require child care workers to get college degrees.”

Yes, you read that correctly. All child care workers in Washington, D.C., must earn a “bachelor’s degree in early-childhood education” in order to take care of your diaper-donned infants.

“The new regulations put the District at the forefront of a national effort to improve the quality of care and education for the youngest learners. City officials want to address an academic achievement gap between children from poor and middle-class families that research shows is already evident by the age of 18 months,” writes the Post. read more

Christian Student Apparently Suspended for Being Christian

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Christians are among the most, if not the most persecuted peoples on the planet. One might argue that no – it’s the Jews. It may be a one and one-A type of thing, but as there are many more Christians, I think the title of most persecuted should go to us.

We hear horror stories of Christians being exterminated in the Middle East – and Europe, as it transforms into Euro-Islam, is becoming increasing hostile to Christians.

Here in the land of the free and home of the brave, intolerance of Christians and Christian beliefs is a relatively new phenomenon. But as the American left becomes more radically secular, they have little patience or tolerance for Christian beliefs with all our “God” rules.

Another odd thing has happened over the last several years – one I wrote about in World Net Daily just a few weeks ago. The title of that piece was “The clueless left’s alignment with radical Islam.” You may review it here.

Radical Islamists of the Muslim Brotherhood have chosen radical leftist groups to unwitting become useful idiots for the Brotherhood’s Civilization Jihad.

So when I read that a student at Rollins College in Orlando Florida was suspended due to a complaint by his Muslim professor, my radar naturally went up. Could this be another case of Christian persecution, or a Christian gone wild? read more

WND Exclusive – Sanctuary Cities Enable Yet More Murders by Illegals

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Technically speaking, Worcester, Massachusetts, is not a sanctuary city.

Sandra Hehir

Yet Mayor Joe Petty and other city leaders have repeatedly said Worcester would not collaborate with the federal government in rounding up and deporting immigrants here illegally.

 In January, Mayor Petty reiterated to a reporter that, “You don’t have to say you are a sanctuary city to protect people.” Does this really need any translation? Of course not. It’s just ridiculous semantics – like an assassin saying that he doesn’t murder people. Sure, he shoots people for a living, but it’s not his fault if they die. read more
