Podcast – Ken Cuccinelli Goes off on Mitch McConnell – News Flash: Ted Cruz is Hated

In this episode I discuss Senate Conservative Fund President Ken Cuccinelli’s outrage over Mitch McConnell’s cowardly behavior. He describes McConnell as having no backbone, which we all know to be true.

I also discuss the harsh treatment of my man Ted Cruz by Daily Show host, the genius, Trevor Noah and how Cruz should turn Noah’s idiotic comments into a winning campaign commercial.

In a short closing segment I expound on some little known facts regarding the area around San Bernardino – the site of the radical Islamist attack. read more

Establishment Republicans: Be Careful What You Wish For

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s just bad news after bad news for the republican establishment.

First it was Jeb Bush, who was supposed to be the heir apparent – as if he were the next man up to carry the establish mantle because everyone just assumed it was his turn. And that’s the way the establishment does it – next moderate up. But Jeb has been steadily fading into oblivion, despite his mega-money pac(s).

Jeb has been called low energy by many and I believe there’s a reason for it. I’m not convinced he really even wants the job. I’m sure it’s tough on him, being a legacy and all. Both your father and brother have accomplished it, and now it’s your turn – and you are expected to have the same wants as they. To me, it certainly doesn’t appear he has that “fire in the belly.” I wonder at this point if Jeb is just looking for a graceful way out.

Next up; John Kasich, who briefly flirted with success only to crash back down to earth after his belligerent debate performance. It seems he has now resigned himself to accepting the role of establishment attack dog, probably banking on a job should one of the “preferred” candidates win the day.

Even Marco Rubio is just holding his own, but gaining no ground.

The establishment wing of the party has suddenly found themselves in uncharted waters, and they are dumb founded. It appears no matter what they do to try to unseat the Trumpster is consistently backfiring. With every attack, Trump holds his own or gains in popularity as the darlings of the GOP sink like so many disfavored mafia men wearing cement overshoes. read more

Princeton Students See the Real Woodrow Wilson And They Don’t Like Him

by: the Common Constitutionalist

For practically the whole of the past century, President Woodrow Wilson has consistently ranked in the top ten of greatest U.S. presidents. One the fathers of modern-day progressivism, Wilson helped usher in the new era of anti-constitutional big government. All the collectivist/socialist things the left loves were embodied in Wilson. Yet his legacy, despite our insistence, has weathered the right’s attacks for decades. And believe you me, Wilson was an evil S.O.B. Want some proof? You may link here and here to see just how bad.

Yet no matter what we say – try as we may – we on the right have been unable to penetrate Wilson’s persona, much like Teddy/Franklin Roosevelt or LBJ. So for conservatives it is easy to just throw up our hands and say: “What will it take for you on the left to see how bad these guys really were?” Your heroes weren’t for equal rights. They weren’t for women’s rights and they sure didn’t fight for minority rights. Quite the opposite.

But, just as we may think of giving up – this occurs. Maybe some college liberals are beginning to realize who the real racists in our history have always been and I wonder if maybe these are the types of incidences that will begin to turn things around. It seems in almost all cases the pendulum of reason must swing too far one way before it is able to correct. read more

Campbell Soup Has No Moral Compass

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In 2013 Campbell Soup goes Halal with approval from Hamas-linked ISNA.

For those unfamiliar, ISNA, The Islamic Society of North America is one of many American Islamic organizations who front for the Muslim Brotherhood, which means they do the bidding of the radical Brotherhood, which means they support terrorism and the conquest of the west, including America.

Halal approval or certification is provided by ISNA, which means Campbell Company pays ISNA or a subsidiary, a flat, monthly or quarterly fee for the halal certification. A portion of every dollar we spend for Campbell’s Soup, V8, Prego Sauces, Swanson products, Pepperidge Farm, etc. goes toward halal certification which is then funneled to various terrorist organizations that the Brotherhood controls. Here is a link to one of my earlier articles further explaining halal.

So Campbell made a business decision (I guess) to certify at least some of their products, figuring (again – I guess) it is a good way to crack the ever-expanding Muslim-American market. They are a private company and are welcome to do just that. read more

Four American Presidents Conducted Deportations

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Trump is a blowhard. Let’s just admit it. He’s a loud mouth. But that doesn’t mean one can’t still be a Trump supporter. Frankly, if he’s right on the issues, who cares if he’s a blowhard.

Well, he’s not right on all issues. So why is he still so popular? Why does he remain at the top of the heap despite bashing everyone but his mother? It’s uncivilized they say. Yet none of that appears to matter due to two little words: Illegal Immigration. That’s it.

Although I’m not a Trumpster, I was glad someone finally brought up president Eisenhower and “Operation Wetback,” during the last debate. We “republicans” are supposed to be up on the issues, but I’ll wager 90% in the audience or viewing on TV didn’t know about Eisenhower’s very successful deportation program.

Well, Bill O’Reilly, on behalf of his “folks,” did not take too kindly to Trump invoking the name of Ike. Business Insider writes that the “Eisenhower program has a dark history – including its name, ‘Operation Wetback,’ a derogatory slur. Of course they neglect to mention that in 1950s parlance, the term “wetback” was more factual than merely derogatory, nor did they care a wit about politically correct speech.

And according to CNN, the 1950s-era transfer process resulted in a number of Mexican migrants dying along the way.” They are attempting to make us believe this deportation was the Mexican Trail-of-Tears? read more

The VA System Was Always Corrupt

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Most everyone, except politicians and those who profit from it (often, one in the same), agree that the Veterans Administration is broken and frankly doesn’t appear to even give a crap about our men and women who have sacrificed in the defense of this country.

Yet I’ve heard that like a lot of “broken” government programs – welfare, social security, etc. – its degradation has been decades in the making and so therefore it just can’t be fixed overnight. It will take time and money (the dreaded “investment”) to fix problems, but constant delays and cost overruns have hampered efforts to provide more care facilities.

To this many, including Ben Carson, have said we simply need to scrap the V.A. and its system of hospitals. Conservatives have been saying, no shouting, that if you want to see the future of Obamacare, of the top down government run healthcare of our future, we need look no further than the VA system.

Carson has suggested it be replaced with a system of health savings accounts “that would allow veterans to obtain treatment at any medical facility instead of restricting them to government-run hospitals. The VA would then be turned into a specialty hospital to care for traumatic injuries such as loss of limb or severe brain injuries.”

Others say no, that you can’t throw the baby out with the bath water. That sure, there are some bad hospitals, some bad administrators, but it’s not all bad – that it wasn’t always this way.

Well, to that I say bunk! Unlike other government organizations, the VA system didn’t get as bad as it is over time. It’s been bad and it’s been corrupt from its conception – when it began as the Veterans Bureau in 1921. read more

Podcast – Jeb Loses a Mega Donor – Children’s Book Pulled From Book Fair

In this episode I discuss the further implosion of Jeb Bush, as his campaign appears to be sinking fast. A huge money donor has pulled his support for poor old Jeb and will now back Marco Rubio.

The Superintendent of Arborwood Elementary School did the right thing by pulling a book from a child book fair, after consulting with a Parent-Teacher group, over potentially offensive material. read more

What Size Cement Shoes Does Jeb Bush Wear?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

As Jeb Bush cuts salaries and slashes campaign staff, he, through his own actions, has provided us a teachable moment. Jeb’s progressive establishment beliefs of big government spending have run up against the reality of the private sector. It’s a fascinating juxtaposition between the world of government fantasy and that of the real.

Jeb is a big government progressive. He, like his brother, undoubtedly agrees that the federal government cannot do without a single dime, or even one less employee – that the federal budget can never be cut. And please don’t try to say that his brother cut spending, when he added about $5 trillion to the debt.

But when it’s his own campaign, those same big government spend thrift principles don’t apply – can’t apply. Jeb’s campaign has cut staff, laid people off and slashed expenses. In other words, he CUT his budget. His campaign found they could no longer afford the status quo, so rather than sending their candidate out to demand donors pay more to maintain his campaign status quo, he did what reasonable people in the real world do – he cut his spending. It’s interesting that a big government progressive didn’t opt to borrow or deficit spend when it’s his own campaign.

Yet this is what every candidate does. It’s the only reason a candidate ever drops out of an election, at least early on. They run out of money and can’t raise more. If the money kept rolling in, no one would ever concede. read more

Luxury Tax History Repeating Itself

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Since 2008, tens of thousands of coal related jobs have been lost – some almost incalculable. As hundreds of coal plants have been closed, it is not just miners who are affected. As power plants close, all employees lose their jobs. Blue collar and white collar employees get the ax – managers, technicians, secretaries, everyone.

But that’s not where it ends. Many of these coal plants are located in rural areas. They have whole towns that spring up around them, as townspeople not only work at the plant, but small businesses are created, like restaurants, gas and service stations, grocery and convenience stores, laundromats, dry cleaners, and list goes on – all to support the plant and its employees. As these plants go away, so too do all the support businesses and all their employees.

But this rings hollow to the Obama administration. Obama cares only for himself and his radical agenda, for once again, due to his Marxist, redistributionist, green agenda, history is about to repeat itself.

Obama’s radical green agenda is about to ruin yet another industry. He and other radicals will consider it a win-win as Obama gets to not only advance his phony green plan, but at the same time, his new rule will also redistribute wealth.

Who’s the target? This time it’s the Luxury yacht industry. read more

The Mother of All Good Crises

by: the Common Constitutionalist

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before,” said Rahm Emmanuel, Chicago mayor and leftist hack.

We’ve seen this adage demonstrated throughout Obama’s dictatorial reign. Every time there is a shooting incident that involves a white killing a black, regardless of the justification, Obama, ever the community agitator, is one of the first to speak up.

The body of the dead is barely cold as Obama takes to a microphone and declares this could have somehow been prevented if only he could take all our guns away. Okay, he doesn’t say it, but you can bet he means it.

But he’s not the only one. Most large, sweeping government programs, rules and regulations come from a good crisis – real or fabricated. The Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) bailout supposedly saved the country from certain financial doom. The GM bailout was to save the car company, but it was actually intended to preserve the labor unions.

TARP also gave us Dodd-Frank, the effective federal takeover of the financial system.

Obamacare was born from a phony healthcare crisis, and the flood of illegals over the past few years was apparently due to poor Central Americans trying escape the strife in their own countries.

But the mother of all good crises may come from the aftermath of mega-hurricane Patricia, bearing down on Southern Mexico. read more
