Housing May be Soon out of Reach for Many

from IBD:

Housing Crisis May Be Inevitable, Thanks To Government Meddling

With home prices soaring in most markets, this is the best time to be a homeowner since 2005. But there’s a downside: Thanks to continued government meddling, the housing market has rarely been more fragile. Is another housing crunch brewing?

We’ve talked before about the strength of the U.S. economy, particularly after tax cuts kicked in. And that’s still true. Unfortunately, 10 years after the 2008 financial crisis, there’s one exception: The housing market, which, despite superficial signs of health, remains dysfunctional. read more

Man Explains why He’s Walking Away from the Left

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

A rather remarkable thing has begun in America. It’s an awakening of sorts. Check that. It’s not “of sorts.” It is an absolute awakening. It’s been dubbed as #Walkaway.

As most know, I, the Common Constitutionalist, was not, am not, and will never be an “Ever-Trumper.” I wholeheartedly support the president when I believe he is right and constitutional on policy, and call him out when he strays. As the saying goes: “It’s not personal – it’s just business.” Being a Never-Trumper or Ever-Trumper is just silly and irrational.

But thank heavens for president Trump and the many things he has accomplished thus far. Most have been well publicized as good or evil, but known to most nonetheless. And most leftist campaigns against him have been equally well publicized.

However, one campaign may not – at least not yet. It’s called the #Walkaway movement, and I don’t think it would have begun without Trump being elected.

Up until this last presidential election, Ronald Reagan was the most hated Republican president. Reagan was labeled as the amiable dunce by the left, and to be sure, was hated by them. But as much as they disliked Reagan’s policies, the left didn’t suffer from Reagan Derangement Syndrome. Nor did they of either George Bush. read more

The Lies of Immigration Part 2

The infamous “catch and release” has worn out its welcome. It was never intended to get immigration under control, but rather to increase the number of illegal aliens in our local areas and allow progressive socialist States to add to their voter rolls. It doesn’t matter that the Constitution does not give them the right to vote. Like Obama, they will ignore it until they get enough illegal votes to scrap it.

And the continual violations of the Mexican government are an obstacle to the immigration policies that are required. They don’t want these people in Mexico, and it is effortless to push them through to our country. Mexico does nothing to stop the flow of these illegals from their southern border to the American frontier, passing through the child traffickers, drug dealers, and gang members. And yet their government speaks with a superior air about how these people should be treated. The bottom line is if you are not keeping these people in your country don’t let them pass through. Refugees, which is what Mexico calls these people, are to be according to the UN, accepted by the first free country they arrive at, which would be Mexico. So most Americans feel, as do I, that if you can’t be an asset in fixing this problem then just SHUT UP. The only alternative is to tax all remittances going to Mexico from the US and the complete shutdown of NAFTA.

Of the many organizations pushing for the defunding of ICE, many are organized and funded by George Soros, the financial head of the anarchy taking place in our country, and the foundational head of the mainstream media who walk in lockstep with his wishes. read more

Look for Dems to Go Low on Next Court Nominee

from the American Spectator:

Like sharks thrashing about in chum-filled bloody water, the unhinged hysterics of the progressive left have gone into a feeding frenzy as they prepare to attack whoever President Trump nominates to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Thanks to Kennedy’s retirement, Trump is now in a position to appoint a non-activist, strict constructionist to the Court. Senate confirmation of the nominee will result in a solid, reliably conservative Court majority. read more

Video Podcast – Refusing Service – American Idol – Rosenstein – The View

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Midwest Wine & Spirits in Oklahoma City has posted a new sign in their front window announcing that all customers must pull up their pants.

Former American Idol singer Jax was treated to a rather crude and insulting tweet, all for agreeing to sing at the White House 4th of July bash.

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein was bewitched by wizard Donald Trump into writing the letter firing James Comey.

Republican strategist embraces and fawns over “democratic socialist” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on The View. read more

Socialism is Cool – Until You Experience It

With the victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who garnered a whopping 17,000 votes in a New York democrat primary, “democratic socialism” took another big step forward. And is being heralded as the beginning of a movement. It’s one thing for some old fossil like Bernie Sanders to promote socialism, but quite another when it’s a young, attractive woman. Of course she’s only attractive until she opens her mouth. But still, more and more people are being drawn to her message of “moral clarity” and being the “champion of the “working class.”

For a more in-depth look into Brazil, you may review an article I wrote last November, entitled “Socialism is Never Cool.”

So rather than me droning on, please watch the following video from Prager-U of just how great socialism worked in Brazil, by someone who lived through it. read more

The Lies of Immigration Part 1

Over the past few weeks, Trump Derangement Syndrome has achieved new levels. The progressive socialists, commonly called democrats, have gotten their panties in a wad, the hand-wringing is likely to cause blisters, and the chorus of calling President Trump inhumane and a Nazi have reached a 24/7 level of caterwauling unknown before today.

What is it all about? It’s all about children sent here by their “loving” parents to sneak into the country and be allowed to bring the parents in to live off the benefits that American politicians bequeath them from the American taxpayer. And of course, according to the simpering leftists, if you don’t agree, you are a “racist”, “xenophobic” uneducated dullard who rejects progress.

Right now the Democrats have an agenda that the American people do not agree with. Part of it is the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The leftists are not concerned with how many more American citizens get raped or murdered by illegals. And yes, I will continue to say illegal and not “undocumented.” That is now a part of the Progressive socialist party platform of 2020. Every progressive socialist democrat intends to turn our country into open border anarchy where they can press further corruption and allow illegal aliens to vote, which to this day is considered a felony. read more

Democrat Loonies are Taking Over

from Conservative Review:

The lunatic fringe is defining the Democrats

When the mouthpieces of the American Left announced they would “RESIST” Trump in every way, they didn’t take into consideration the importance of balance that the American people search for. So when they allowed their lunatic fringe to become the voice and the face of this Resistance, or whatever they claim to be, there’s a heavy dash of BS that most Americans can detect.

The act of resistance assumes that something is being done to those who claim to resist it. But so far, the resistance claims something is always being done to someone else. read more
