The Left and Right Are Saddened by Lindsey’s Exit

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It cased you missed it, and it was easy to do, Lindsey Graham has pulled out of the race to become our next president. I’m sure it was a difficult decision, being that he was beginning to pick up momentum. He was after all, gaining in the polls – at last I checked, he had reached the zero percent threshold.

Both the radical left and establishment right are saddened by the news of Graham’s departure. The Weekly Standard, who never met a big government progressive they didn’t like, wrote yesterday of their regret. Michael Warren expressed his disappointment in his article entitled “3 Reasons Lindsey Graham Dropping Out Matters.”

“First, Graham leaves the presidential field without a candidate who has served in the armed forces,” writes Warren. In years gone by I have also expressed my desire to always elect a Commander in Chief with at least some sort of military background or service. But in recent years – certainly recent election cycles, my opinion has changed.

It’s one thing to trust Colonel Allen West as Commander in Chief, but another entirely to elect the likes of John Kerry or John McCain. John Kerry was a disaster from the start and his post Vietnam stance and behavior bordered on traitorous, in my opinion. McCain served with distinction and was a war hero, despite what Trump claims. But McCain sold his soul to the establishment devil long ago, which more than offsets his military qualifications. Lindsey Graham did the same, which makes Warren’s lament pointless. read more

Podcast – Marco Rubio Mega Flip Flop – Mike Huckabee Campaign On Life Support

Marco Rubio is not who he seems. A mere five years ago he was a self-proclaim anti-amnesty, anti-illegal immigration warrior. He said so in a 2010 interview and you’ll hear it for yourself, straight from Rubio’s mouth. So what happen to Marco?

I also discuss poor Mike Huckabee, whose presidential campaign has all but taken its last breath. But who will Huckleberry support? Listen and find out. read more

Growing Fascism on College Campuses

by: the Common Constitutionalist

“A decade ago students were having lousy experiences on their campuses but there was not a way to let the world know,” said Shaun Harper, founder and executive director of the Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education at the University of Pennsylvania told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “Now students are beginning to understand that what they are experiencing is a national phenomenon. Social media is a tool for students to help communicate their issues,” he said.

Actually social media is a gathering place for the new agitator set to whine and cry about how they are put upon and subject to faux-abuse. And this is demonstrated every day on any number of college campuses throughout our country. And why does anyone need to “let the world know” when your little feelings get hurt?

But its not about hurt feelings or name calling. Now is about forcing real change – change driven by a tiny minority of miscreants and rabble-rousers – change the majority neither wants nor should accept. read more

Paul Ryan’s Inclusive Conservatism

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Last week the New York Times wrote:  “Republican leaders on Capitol Hill conceded that they will miss a Friday deadline, and the House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday put forward a stopgap measure to prevent a government shutdown and give negotiators an additional five days to reach an agreement.”

And this is what happens every time a budget bill or frankly any “important” legislation (if there is such a thing) comes up. It’s planned and purposeful – playing the postponement game with “stopgap measures.” Isn’t it curious that they always seem to be pushed right to the brink of a holiday period, a government shutdown or such thing? This time it’s a double whammy – Christmas break and the dreaded shutdown (which we all know is a mere slowdown). No one on capital hill wants to be here longer than they have to, so the old game is to keep extending the final decision making until the 11th hour and rush to make a deal, then leave town.

Senator majority leader and head bully, Mitch McConnell already stated there will NEVER again be a government shutdown. read more

Just Let Everyone In, As Long As They Are Muslim

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday the Senate Judiciary Committee passed what they mindlessly named a “Sense of the Senate” resolution calling for no religious test for immigrants entering this country. The bipartisan vote was 16-4. It was offered up by Vermont Statist Senator Patrick “Leaky” Leahy ( D-Vt.) as an amendment to a bill, S.1318, the Nuclear Terrorism Conventions Implementation and Safety of Maritime Navigation Act of 2015.

The resolution was added by Leahy over the issue of Trump’s comments, with Democrat Senators repeatedly saying that excluding people on the basis of religion was intolerable and not what the country stood for. In supporting the bill, Senator Chris Coons (D-Del.) talked about Trump wanting to close down houses of worship, which is exactly what liberal France is doing. They have closed down three thus far, confiscating hundreds of weapons. But I’m sure the weapons were just for hunting… infidels.

And a funny thing happened on the way to the democrat and establishment republican talking points: In November CNS News,  looked at data showing “only 53 Syrian Christian refugees have been allowed into America, compared to 2,098 Syrian Muslims.” read more

Marco Rubio Is The Establishment

from Mark Levin at Conservative Review:

I was among the first national radio hosts to support Marco Rubio in his uphill Republican primary campaign for the Senate against the unprincipled Florida Governor Charlie Crist.  Back then, he ran as an unabashed Tea Party conservative.  I also supported Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, among others, in their campaigns against the entrenched GOP establishment.  But soon after arriving in Washington, Rubio decided to throw in with these politicians – including John McCain and Lindsey Graham and take an active leadership role in the Gang of Eight fiasco.  As he runs for the Republican presidential nomination, Rubio has attempted to redefine his position on immigration yet again, resulting in his utter incoherence on the subject.

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
