Democrats and the Free Press

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The main stream media and the democrats claim, like Joe Biden did recently, that president Trump is an “existential” threat to this nation. They claim that Trump is an enemy to a free press in this country and wants to censor them and shut them down.

However, not once as I recall, has the president Trump ever seriously called for the shuttering of any leftist news outlets, or silencing any opposing voices. Frankly, why would he. They are doing such a bang up job of it themselves.

Just look at the tanking ratings for CNN and the like. Every time I tune in to that network, I wonder why advertisers still run commercials there. Who’s going to see them? Every month there are new reports of CNN losing more market share.

Yet still they won’t change their narrative.

Unfortunately for the left, the facts, and history, is and has always been on our side. And it’s a funny thing about facts. There is no denying them. Oh sure, they can try to spin them, but the facts are and every will be what they are. read more

Supreme Identity Politics

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yet another red flag raised regarding supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Is our newest supreme Court justice an independent jurist or is he just another Republican caveman, who the left can bend and shape to their will by just exerting political pressure?

Recall, during his confirmation, justice Kavanaugh declared that should he be confirmed he would hire an all-female crew to clerk for him.

And that he did. For his “effort,” fellow justice and radical leftist, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, better known as Notorious RBG, praised him for it.

“If confirmed, I’ll be the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks. That is who I am,” said Kavanaugh.

“Justice Kavanaugh made history by bringing on board an all-female law clerk crew. Thanks to his selections, the Court has this Term, for the first time ever, more women than men serving as law clerks,” Ginsburg said at the Second Circuit Judicial Conference on Friday.

Well Yay! Identity politics has officially infected everything. read more

WND Exclusive – WHAT ABOUT AMENDING THE 2ND AMENDMENT?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to prevent government infringement on our natural rights as Americans. It was designed to prevent government the ability to bestow and therefore rescind the rights of the individual.

To that, there was an interesting and thought-provoking article in the Washington Post recently. I’m not sure I’ve ever uttered those words in the same sentence: thought-provoking and Washington Post.

As I rarely peruse the pages of the Post, I must thank Jazz Shaw at HotAir.com for bringing it to our attention. read more

NYC Spending $23 Million to Check Teachers’ Whiteness

New York City, like most cities run by leftists, is heavily and desperately in debt. They currently have approximately $58.5 billion in assets available to pay bills totaling $244 billion. In other words, that’s over $64,000 per NYC taxpayer. Yet this never seems to matter when implementing another idiotic leftist feel-good program.

I mean – what’s another $23 million, flushed down the proverbial toilet, to advance the social justice, liberal agenda.

from the New York Post:

Teachers allegedly told to favor black students in ‘racial equity’ training

In controversial “implicit bias” training, New York City’s public-school educators have been told to focus on black children over white ones — and one Jewish superintendent who described her family’s Holocaust tragedies was scolded and humiliated, according to firsthand accounts.

A consultant hired by the city Department of Education told administrators at a workshop that “racial equity” means favoring black children regardless of their socio-economic status, sources said. read more

Mueller’s New Inquisition Model – Guilty Until Proven Innocent

from Conservative Review:Image result for guilty until proven innocent

Mueller sets a new standard for innocence: Prove you did not commit a crime

Speaking at Justice Department headquarters in Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning, a visibly nervous Robert Mueller told reporters that he found no evidence of collusion with Russia, but then appeared to invent a new, extrajudicial standard for innocence in the United States.

First going through many of the conclusions of his April report on supposed Russian interference in the 2016 election, Mueller then announced that he will be “resigning from the Department of Justice to return to private life,” effective today.

He restated his report’s conclusion that there was no evidence to support the collusion narrative. read more

DC Residents had Better see Through the New Vision Zero Bill

The goal of the omnibus Vision Zero bill, from council member Charles Allen of Ward 6, is to decrease the number of traffic accidents with pedestrians and cyclists,” writes the Washington Examiner.

At first blush, it may appear to be a “traffic safety bill,” but reading further, the additional proposals make obvious what this really is. The “Vision Zero bill” is a government command and control / Green New Deal style bill, disguised as a traffic safety bill.

The main takeaway of the bill, that many conservative chronicles gleaned, is that neighbors will be allowed to effectively write their own parking tickets – turning otherwise harmless busy-bodies into traffic cops.

Now, knowing that the police can’t be everywhere, the aforementioned D.C. council member Charles Allen of Ward 6 proposes that, “certain residents,” be given the authority, “to write out parking tickets to their neighbors.” read more

Microsoft Ventures into Virtue Signaling

Microsoft wants its next generation word processing software, Microsoft Word, to be enlightened. This latest version, dubbed “Ideas in Word,” will use artificial intelligence to make your writing not just grammatically but politically correct. Because as we’ve come to realize, politically correct intelligence is indeed artificial.

“Similar to the program’s current grammar and spellcheck suggestions, Ideas in Word will underline words that appear insensitive in nature,” writes the Blaze.

But it’s more than just being politically correct – more than just an effort not to offend. Don’t we all wish to impress our reader(s), not only with proper grammar and punctuation, but also to demonstrate how educated and enlightened we are? Isn’t that really the most important aspect of the written or spoken word? Not to merely disseminate information, but to show the reader(s) that we care and that you should too.

Microsoft is at a decided disadvantage. Google can decrease the search ranking of right-wing hater websites, Twitter can suspend, temporarily or permanently, accounts they deem offensive. YouTube can demonetize accounts for the same reason and Facebook does essentially the same.

But Word is just a program for writing. So how can it become more woke? read more

Better to be Awake than Woke

by: Brent Smith at Common Constitutionalist

I enjoy viewing various #WalkAway stories from time to time – seeing what it took for each to wise up to the nonsense they’ve been spoon-fed their whole lives.

For those unfamiliar, the #WalkAway campaign was founded by Brandon Straka, whose liberal eyes were opened to the hypocrisy and lies of the left and decided to WalkAway from liberalism and the democrat party.

Now, thousands are too having their eyes open as they join the campaign.

The following is a #WalkAway video posted by Shannon. She claims to be an independent, not affiliated with either party, but always voted democrat, until recently. read more

Heather Mac Donald Speaks out Against The Delusion of Diversity

There is no more delusional a place than the modern day college campus, and no more delusional group than the students who attend. We can find examples of this every day at sites like the College Fix and Campus Reform. Woke students, privileged enough to attend elite Universities, are triggered in to melt down and often violence at the mere mention of anything they don’t agree with or can’t fully embrace.

Peter Robinson of Fox Nation interviews Heather Mac Donald regarding her new book, The Delusion of Diversity, her experiences with college student ne’er-do-wells, and the faculty and staff who pander to their immaturity.

Enjoy the video: read more
