Segment Two is a discussion of The Climate Change “Perfect Con,” and how alarmists now want the Obama administration to prosecute corporations and deniers under the RICO act. Segment Three furthers the Climate Change discussion, juxtaposing it with the inaccurate science of predicting and tracking hurricanes. read more

The Muslim Brotherhood Five-Step Program to Domination

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Alcoholics Anonymous has its 12-step program to conquer the demon drink. The Black Panther Party has a 10 point program. There is a four step, five and 10 step program for quitting smoking and a 10 step program for weight loss. Everywhere we look there is a “step” program to accomplish some goal.

Religions also have “step” programs. There are the nine steps to convert to Judaism and 13 steps to convert to Catholicism. Even radical Islam has a “step” program.

Yes, the Muslim Brotherhood, the originator of modern-day terrorism, from which all modern Islamic terror was born, has a five step program, or strategic plan, to take over Western nations, including the United States, and subjugate all its citizens, for all to submit to Sharia law.

The plan is called “Civilization Jihad.” This five-step (or phase) plan was crafted by Mohammed Akram, a senior Hamas leader in the United States and board member of the Muslim Brotherhood of North America, and approved by its Shura Council in 1987.

Their mission statement is as follows:

“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

Cruz Knows Why Boehner is Leaving

Ted Cruz says he knows why John (the town crier) Boehner is retiring. Cruz says Boehner has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund all Barack Obama big spending plans and then get out of town. Actually, not get out of town, being that he’ll just move over to K-Street, to his cushy lobbyist position where he’ll make millions in first year. He is staying until the end of October to see the despicable scheme through. read more

Universal Pre-Kindergarten Isn’t Worth It

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We all know why the federal government has long ago injected itself into the American education system. Big government progressive’s knew they couldn’t control what schools were teaching, and of course progressives must have control over every facet of our lives.

So they began offering carrots to the states in the form of federal funding for schools. Naturally, whenever one takes the bait from the feds, there must be strings attached. However, the states, also run by progressives, had for years been overspending to the point where they didn’t care how big the stick of control was that came with the carrot of all that “free” cash.

The reasoning the states always give for taking the federal largess was and is, “if we don’t take it, someone else will.” And so now the feds control K-12 and beyond – from curriculum to school lunch. All this in an effort to indoctrinate children into a progressive, socialistic lifestyle. It has never had anything to do with “educating” anyone.

But evidently kindergarten is simply too late to start the indoctrination process. The feds need a true cradle to career (in government) program. And so came the cries from the left for universal day care and pre-K.

And why not – parents don’t know how to raise children. They don’t have the academic early education degrees to rear their own children. That’s just silly! read more

Prosperity Must Be Explained

from Dr. Thomas Sowell:

Pope Francis has created political controversy, both inside and outside the Catholic Church, by blaming capitalism for many of the problems of the poor. We can no doubt expect more of the same during his visit to the United States.
Pope Francis is part of a larger trend of the rise of the political left among Catholic intellectuals. He is, in a sense, the culmination of that trend. read more

How Will Corporate America Ever Survive Without the Export-Import Bank?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

To listen to the wails from Democrats and the socialistic “financial media,” you’d think business will cease to exist in America. Certainly American corporations will no longer be able to compete on a global scale without the help of our government.

You see, the big meanie conservative Republicans in the House allowed the Export-Import bank authorization to lapse – so now, other than previously agreed-upon commitments, the bank is no more.

Last week General Electric, one of the largest corporations on the planet, “announced it would create 500 jobs in France instead of the United States because it can no longer access the kind of financing once offered by the now shuttered agency.”

“Congress left us no choice when it failed to reauthorize the Ex-Im bank this summer,” said John Rice, G.E.’s vice chairman. You do have a choice Mr. Rice – but I’ll address that in a bit.

The liberal Fiscal Times felt the need to add: “but G.E.’s announcements suggest that more companies may start blaming Congress for destroying American jobs.”

Guess they got that right out of the Democrat playbook. It is widely known that the spineless Republican leadership can’t stomach criticism. But to that, my man Ted Cruz said: “I understand the crony capitalism is an easier way to do business, simply getting politicians in Washington to carve out billions in favors for giant corporations, but it’s not what Congress should be doing.” read more

So Labor Day is Not a Full-Blown Communist Holiday

From: National Review

There isn’t much good to say about Labor Day, except maybe that it could be worse — it could be on May 1, which would make it a full-on Communist holiday instead of a merely crypto-Communist one. For that we can thank Grover Cleveland, the last pretty-good Democrat (seriously: gold standard, anti-tariff, vetoed twice as many bills as all of his predecessors combined — Rand Paul is a fan), who pushed for the creation of a labor festival in September as cultural competition to the international workers’ celebration in May, sort of the reverse of the strategy of the early Church fathers’ choosing the dates of heathen festivals for the new Christian holidays.

So, from the two out of three working-age Americans who are gainfully employed, a round of applause for President Cleveland. But crypto-Communist holidays are not so great, either.

Labor Day, like Obamacare and much else that is distasteful about American public life today, is a product of American liberals’ desire to be Canadians. The ’Nucks started celebrating labor on the first Monday in September in the 1880s; this holiday grew out of a parade celebrating a typographical workers’ strike in 1872. Soon, U.S. labor bosses, especially the Marxist Central Labor Union, wanted a holiday of their own. read more

Just Say No to Trump’s Progressive Tax the Rich Plan

by: the Common Constitutionalist

There have been plenty of candidates on the Republican side who have advocated for a flat income tax. Most, if not all conservative Republicans have offered up some variation.

And given a choice between the current tax system and a flat income tax, most people, me included, would choose the flat tax.

A flat tax is a good gauge of just how conservative a candidate really is. After all, a progressive income tax is just that – progressive – and aren’t we, or shouldn’t we be done with big government progressives?

So when we hear Donald Trump say he’s a conservative who wants an additional tax levied on those wealthy Wallstreeters, Hedge Fund Managers and the like, we know he can’t be a conservative, as we define it. So, by extension, anyone who advocates for any sort of flat tax is automatically more conservative and less a big government progressive.

One of the major reasons those who advocate for a flat tax is the incredibly complex and burdensome tax code, and the IRS itself. By instituting a flat tax we can rid ourselves of virtually the entire tax code, thus eliminating 90+% of the IRS.

As an added benefit, there would be no more need for lobbying firms in Washington. Lobbyists flood D.C. for a singular purpose. They are there to make back room deals – buy influence, favors and most importantly, tax exemptions. They pay millions of dollars every year to lobby politicians into writing carve outs for their clients, to lessen their tax burden. It’s a total racket. The flat tax would eliminate all of this.

So, it sounds like I’m firmly against Trump’s populist wealth and Hedge fund tax idea, and I am, but I’m also not in favor of a flat income tax. If we must be taxed, and we must, it should not be on our production, but on our consumption. read more

Battle of the Presidential Billionaires

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corp., parent company of hated Fox News thinks that one billionaire in the presidential race isn’t good enough. He tweeted out his desire for another to enter. And the other billionaire is none other than Michael “Nanny State” Bloomberg.

Is this the beginning of a draft Bloomberg campaign? I doubt it, but only time will tell, and it’s hard to say whether Murdoch was serious or not as he tweeted: “With Trump becoming very serious candidate, it’s time for next billionaire candidate, Mike Bloomberg to step into ring. Greatest mayor.”

Now right off the bat, you would have to question the sanity of Murdoch by saying Bloomberg was the “Greatest mayor.” I understand Murdoch and Bloomberg are good friends but calling him the greatest mayor, and thinking he wouldn’t be as progressive with the nation as he was with New York City, are a little far-fetched.

Murdoch failed to elaborate in any of his tweets for which party Bloomberg would run, although it seems to me he would be better suited to displace Hillary Clinton than any Republican, save for a few progressive establishment types.

Murdoch went back to Twitter to explain that although he was at odds with a lot of the “nanny state” policies Bloomberg enacted as mayor, he reiterated that along with Rudy Giuliani, Bloomberg made New York City the greatest. read more
