Video Podcast – The Shutdown – The Reality of Immigration – Democrat Infighting

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The dreaded government shutdown is upon us. Anyone notice? Not yet at least. But is the shutdown, that we well know is a mere slowdown, a real problem? Is it real or just imaginary? Is the angst everyone claims to be feeling over the shutdown psychosomatic – just a Pavlovian response?

Leftists in France are finding out first hand, the joys of being overrun with refugees and immigrants. Their quest for a truly diverse society that they so often claim to want is backfiring. The French are finding it difficult for their children to obtain a decent education, due to the sudden diverse nature of their schools.

The democrats may not have as easy a time in the mid-term elections as is being promoted by the left. Caustic infighting among the Hillary/Bernie factions continues to fracture the party. And it appears as if they will be hard-pressed to find common ground before November. Coupled with their hopeless lack of fundraising and it may be a recipe for disaster. read more

You Created Us

“US” by Paul Genova

(Mr. Paul Genova has been President and Chief Operating Officer of Wireless Telecom Group Inc.)

 

I haven’t said too much about this election since the start…but this is how I feel….

I’m noticing that a lot of people aren’t graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.

In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those who voted for Trump

Some are apparently “triggered” because they are posting how “sick” you feel about the results.

How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened! read more

Illegal Alien Transports are Still Happening

Where would we be without groups like Judicial Watch (JW)?

We’d be living in nation filled with ignorant people – more ignorant than we currently are. We’d be living in a country that we thought was free, and open, and transparent, but in fact is not. We’d be living in the Soviet Union, minus the communism, jack boots and food lines.

Regardless of who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., the Swamp just keeps on doing what they do.

One of President Trump’s major campaign issues was to solve the illegal immigration problem once and for all. And for his part, he’s been doing an admirable job. But he can’t do it all himself, and Judicial Watch has learned that he isn’t get much help from the Swamp.

Just yesterday, it was reported that, “Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch.” read more

Right and Left Just Keep on Spending

from Rand Paul for the Washington Examiner:

Sen. Rand Paul: The debt and the decline of empire

I ran into a couple of GOP senators the other day. They were talking about the fall of the Roman Empire (who knew senators might actually discuss history?). One senator made the point that Rome’s fall corresponded with a loss of values, which of course has some merit. But that’s missing the bigger picture. I responded that perhaps their decline had something to do with being overextended militarily, knowing that they would likely reject this point since it might imply that the United States, also, might be faced with the same future.

History certainly has lessons, but it’s amazing that after 2,000 years we still draw different conclusions. I couldn’t resist to jab them a little: “You know our own decline will ultimately come when we can’t manage our debt.”

WND Exclusive – Trump and the Self-Deportation Phenomenon

Did you hear the good news? President Trump has taken the handcuffs, blindfolds and leg irons off the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) and is actually allowing its agents to do the job for which they were hired.

On Wednesday, Jan. 10, it was reported that, “agents arrested 21 people suspected of living in the country illegally in a predawn sweep targeting dozens of 7-Eleven stores across the country.” The number was actually 98 stores, but who’s counting. read more

Oprah is No Moderate

I take issue with some on the right believing that Oprah might turn out to be some sort of Joe Manchin-type democrat centrist. I’m not even sure Joe Manchin is any longer a Joe Manchin-type centrist democrat.

That right-wing sooth-sayer Bill Kristol, republican establishment hack and never-Trumper, who predicted that the Arab Spring would work out great, and has pretty much been wrong about everything else, believes The Oprah may be some sort of closet moderate.

He also believes she could win the democrat nomination and could make a better president than Trump. Wow – that’s a pretty bold statement for someone who knows nothing of Oprah’s actual politics, couldn’t have done even cursory research on her, but still claims that, “if she runs, couldn’t she win the Democratic nomination and the general election? And wouldn’t she be a better president than Trump?” read more

Video Podcast – Trump’s ‘S’hole Remark

Transcript:

I first want to start off with an observation made years ago by one Glenn Beck, long before Trump ever considered running for President. Those who don’t care for Beck, just stay with me. This is not about him.

He was talking about what the polished, buttoned up phony Obama was and frankly still is. He was aloof, seemingly unflappable, great speech maker, always mindful of his words. Glenn said that we must be careful in our next choice for president because otherwise it’s likely to be the polar opposite. Both in terms of policy and also in demeanor.

Glenn predicted that the next president might be a “gravy stain” president. You know, the guys that spills gravy down the front of his shirt and then doesn’t seem to care. He’s not polished or buttoned up. He’s more blue collar and acts and speaks that way.

It wasn’t a hard prediction. After all, if you trust the pendulum theory, that the pendulum tends always to swing wildly from one side to the other. It never seems to go from hard left to center and vice versa. read more

Foxconn’s Olympic Venue

On the surface, it’s great to hear that companies are repatriating themselves. Not just money coming back in, but companies either moving back or expanding facilities in the United States rather than over seas.

The problem is that many States are so desperate for the potential of an additional tax base that state governments tend to offer extraordinary perks and tax breaks to entice the multi-national corporations to set up shop in their State. So much so that the companies end up receiving ridiculous amounts of relief and “incentives” from the State for the privilege of effectively underwriting the new facility.

Exhibit A: In July, 2017, Foxconn, the Taiwanese manufacturer that makes electronics for Apple and other tech companies, announced that it will build a manufacturing facility in Wisconsin. Governor Scott Walker eagerly proclaimed that, “The project will create 13,000 new jobs and should be completed by 2020.”

Foxconn’s projections were a tad more subdued. “In a statement, the company said the project will create 3,000 jobs with the ‘potential’ to generate up to 13,000 new jobs.” read more

Conservatives Need to Remain Consistent On Unemployment

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

For a decade or so, we conservatives had been like the town criers. Every time new employment numbers emerged we would cry out that despite what we all see, read and hear from the left wing media, all was not well. Throughout the entirety of the Obama reign, virtually everyone right of center – yes, even those establishment Republicans, would rightly claim that Obama’s unemployment figures were bogus.

And they were. Despite all other dreadful economic indicators, save for the phony Wall Street numbers, the unemployment rate continued to drop throughout Obama’s time. We on the right knew these numbers did not tell the true story, as the government was using the “official” unemployment calculator known as U-3.

This, as many know, does not give an accurate picture of real unemployment in this country. For years we have insisted that the more accurate U-6 data be used, as it takes into account not only short term unemployed, but also long-termed unemployed, discouraged workers who have just given up, and the underemployed, who wish to work full time yet can only find part time employment. This is the number conservatives insisted be reflected during the Obama years.

But then something odd happened after President Trump took office. read more

WND Exclusive – Out With the Old, In With the Old

After 113 years in the U.S. Senate, Orrin Hatch is finally calling it quits – assuming he actually will leave office this time around. OK, maybe it hasn’t been 113 years – just a mere four decades. It just feels that long.

Hatch may have once been a solid conservative, but like everyone else who has spent that much time inside the beltway, or the devil’s playground, he long ago became just another high-powered sell-out in the Republican machine. He has stuck around this long because of the awesome power he wields. And many in the party have asked him to stick around due to his senior status. It doesn’t matter that he is an establishment hack with a conservative Liberty Score of “F” (29 percent). It’s the power, control and the ability to arm twist they wish to maintain. read more
