Protests Won’t Stop Trump – Why Not a Magic Spell

Any time a Republican is elected president, there are bound to be protests by the left. George W. Bush had his share of selected, not elected, truther, anti-war nimrods and “Bush Lied – People Died” protests.

But leftist protesting has been more of a cottage industry until the election of Donald Trump. I don’t know what the employment rate for professional protesters was before Trump, but it has to have reached full employment by now.

One of Trump’s initiatives is to end all funded for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Perhaps if they change their name to the Corporation for Public Protesting, they’ll be able to make up for the dearth of government funds by tapping one of George Soros’ many shell organizations.

Seriously – maybe I’m just more plugged in than ever before, but there appears to be enough anti-Trump protests groups to fill a set of Encyclopedias. For you younger readers – an Encyclopedia is a set of books with paper pages bound together, representing a cumulative base of knowledge.

There is even a book, recently published, entitled, “THIS IS AN UPRISING,” a “Key Guide for the Movement to Stop Trump!” read more

Podcast – 1-2-3-4 – I Declare a Twitter War

The Trump team is engaged in a Twitter war with members of the House Freedom Caucus. The President and his team are not taking kindly to the loss regarding RyanCare and have begun a war of words with Rep. Justin Amash of the Freedom Caucus.

This, in my opinion, is an ill-advised move on both sides.

I discuss the ins and outs of the so-called war and how counterproductive it is for both sides. read more

Late Night Obamacare Repeal!

Holy Crap! Just when we thought the establishment, President Trump and the Freedom Caucus would never be able to come together and circle the wagons like the dems are so good at – they appear to have pulled it off. In a secretive late night session the leaders of the House factions met with Trump and hammered out a full ObamaCare repeal agreement.

My sources say it was a stunning turn of events and that the Freedom Caucus got virtually everything they asked for.

The official announcement is said to come some time this weekend. read more

Shouldn’t Ryan’s Healthcare Failure be About Us?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Can we get a little perspective on the epic RINOCare fail? By perspective, I mean, exactly who it really harms.

There is a one word answer to the question of who it harms, and it doesn’t start with ‘T’. The word actually begins with ‘U’ – as in Us! Yet watching the weekend cable news broadcasts, there has been nary a word mentioned about the harm Paul Ryan’s phony “repeal and replace” bill has caused us – the Americans who voted for these bums.

We the “silent majority,” who, over the past few election cycles, have decided to not be so silent – to make our wishes known to these politicians. In return for our votes they have made promises.

Beginning in 2010, Republicans began an unbroken string of passing clean repeal bills. They’ve asked for our help to build majorities and WE made it happen. We even elected an “outsider” from the business community to aid in our quest to roll back government and rid us of ObamaCare. And for all our trouble – for all our hard work and heavy lifting, it is WE who have been stabbed in the back by Ryan and the establishment.

However, to historically reliable cables news outlets like Fox, it is like we don’t exist. It seems as if it is now all about politics – not people – not voters and taxpayers. read more

Dems Register Refugees to Vote

The following video is from Conservative Review. It shows the chairwoman of the Nebraska State Democrat Party speaking about welcoming immigrant and refugees into her State. She is proud that on a per capita basis, Nebraska welcomes the greatest amount of immigrants and refugees. I’m sure the people of the red State of Nebraska would be thrilled by this news.

The video shows her walking to and displaying several of what she calls welcome baskets for incoming refugees. There are the usual items, including blankets, pillows, toilet paper and such. And then on top of each basket, is an envelope she says is from the Nebraska State Democrat Party. Inside the envelope is a letter welcoming the new welfare recipients (my words – not hers), and one other thing – a VOTER REGISTRATION CARD!! Yes – a voter registration card, which is clearly illegal, but described by her in passing as harmlessly as reciting a shopping list.

The entire short video is a must see, but the shocker is at 2:36 in. What’s the democrat refrain – there is no voter fraud?

Podcast – Chuck Schumer Goes Off On Republicans Over RINOCare

Today I discuss Senate Minority Leader Chuckie Schumer, who had some choice words for President Trump, Speaker Ryan and the Republicans over their failed plan on Friday.

He complained that the GOP never even approached him regarding fixing ObamaCare. Instead they just froze out the dems and tried to go it alone – and failed. He’s says he’s not happy about it, but we know that’s a laugh. The dems are thrilled.

I explain that ObamaCare was written to fail, and that any effort by the Republicans to “fix” it, will be useless. It must be repealed in full. read more

Phase One Goes Down in Flames

I’ve been watching the tube (that’s a television, for all you younger readers) and listening to the radio, collecting reaction to the Ryan health insurance proposal. The Democrats aside – it seems there was strong support for the bill.

The establishment Republicans were all on board, as well as die hard Trump supporters.

Then there were the House Freedom Caucus members, who were firmly against it. The most vocal Senate opponents were the usual suspects and real conservatives, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Count me in their camp.

Not surprisingly, virtually everyone on a certain cable news channel supported the Ryan bill – not for Ryan’s sake, but because president Trump was on board. What I did find a little surprising and a bit disturbing is that the majority of conservative radio talkers were also for the bill. Check that. They weren’t backing Ryan and the bill. They appeared to be on board in defense of Trump’s decision to support it. To me this seems misguided and frankly sycophantic.

I still hold that president Trump was sold a bill of goods by Republicans. Sure, he’s a smart guy, but even smart guys can be fooled. read more

WND Weekly Exclusive – Have We Lost Kooky California for Good?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It looks like the agents of the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are finally being allowed to the job they were hired to do – unless they were hired during Obama’s reign. Then, their job description was to look the other way, catch and release and taxi illegals to safe spaces throughout the country.

We on the right are thrilled to hear this news. However, for those on left – not so much.

Sob stories abound across the Internet at virtually every leftist site. Stories of mothers deported, leaving their children behind. Whole families of illegals, braving the snow and bitter cold, to make the trek into the loving arms of Canada. Illegals in Georgia who are voluntarily opting out of the food stamp program, so as not to be caught by Trump and his jackbooted ICE brigade. read more

It’s Time Someone Slapped Down the Rogue Federal Courts

by: the Common Constitutionalist

On Wednesday, at a rally in Nashville, president Trump proclaimed that, “A judge has just blocked our Executive Order on travel and refugees coming into our country from certain countries….We’re going to fight this terrible ruling. We’re going to take our case as far as it needs to go including all the way up to the supreme Court. The danger is clear – the law is clear – the need for my Executive order is clear…”

Trump has now been blocked multiple times by lower court judges.

So what does he or anyone intend to do about it? It appears he intends to fight this all way to the high court – or should I say, the black-robed legislators. And then what?

This is how far we’ve strayed from the Constitution and the design of the federal judicial branch’s authority. All on the right are wailing about the courts clearly overstepping their bounds, but from what I’ve heard and seen thus far, no one has offered a solution. read more

The Lefts Special Ability to See Racism

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I find it fascinating that the only culture not worth preserving is Western culture, and particularly American culture.

No matter how long I lived in – pick a country – say – Mexico, I would never be afforded the title of hyphenated countryman. Regardless of my insistence, I would never be considered American-Mexican, or American Hispanic. No one would come to my aid and insist that my American heritage must be preserved – that it would add to or somehow strengthen Mexican culture. There would be no protests, no marches, no picket signs, no pressing two for English. And those in Mexico would have little patience with me flying the American flag. They would expect me to assimilate, and rightly so.

Yet, as we are well aware, there is no such expectation in America. Quite the opposite. We are the ones who are expected to accept and celebrate everyone else’s culture but our own, allowing them to live as they would like, as permanent house guests. This, we are told, is multiculturalism and is indeed to be celebrated as somehow strengthening our nation.

Because of this we are slowly losing our identity, our culture – what it means to be American.

Recently, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, landed himself in hot water with the liberal elite for stating this very thing. He was interviewed  by the poster-boy of leftist elitism, CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Cuomo immediately began attacking King regarding a tweet by the Republican in support of a comment made by Dutch politician Geert Wilders. read more
