If You Don’t Blame Guns You Want People to Die

We don’t even have a full accounting of what happened in Las Vegas, or even what motivated this sick individual. But no matter – the gun control nuts came out almost immediately blaming the NRA and anyone who advocates for the Second Amendment and gun ownership. If after this you still think guns are not the problem, you must just want people to die.

The Left Can’t Wait to Confiscate

from the American Thinker:

Democrats Politicize Las Vegas before Blood Even Dry

Before the blood was even dry in Las Vegas, Democrats from coast to coast were pushing gun control. Hillary Clinton led the charge, finding time between fainting spells to tweet “Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.” (Translation: “Put your politics aside… and accept my politics! Oh, and my grief is never enough because I don’t feel any.”) But I guess, taking Rahm Emanuel’s counsel, leftists “never let a serious crisis go to waste.”

The waste, though, is that we’re even talking about this in a tragedy’s wake. But since the attacks have been launched, let’s discuss guns.

To use a twist on a Frédéric Bastiat line, the bad social analyst confines himself to the visible effect; the good social analyst considers not just the effects that can be seen, but those largely invisible and those that must be foreseen. Events such as Sunday’s massacre by murderer Stephen Paddock cannot be missed; they’re horrible, headline-making tragedies.

WND Exclusive – Can we still trust President Trump?

The nation is all a atwitter over this apparent Trump-Schumer-Pelosi triumvirate.

I was personally disappointed that Trump even met with the two dirt dealers. Nothing productive could come of it. And herein lies the problem: We don’t know what was said or agreed upon, yet everyone has an opinion – but based on what?

I suppose, we could base opinion on conjecture or “ifs,” as it were. If Trump did this, then we’re happy – if Trump did that, then we’re mad, etc. read more

Like ObamaCare – Bernie’s Medicare-For-All will Cost You

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Did you hear the good news? The left appears to be giving up on single-payer healthcare – or at least is one leftist.

Okay – not quite. Actually not at all. Socialist front man, and member of the richest 1 percent, Bernie Sanders, who has pushed single-payer for a while now, no longer speaks of it.

Sanders now trumpets Medicare-for-all. It’s the same thing. He just changed the name to something probably focus-group tested that sounds more attractive. Bernie wishes “to provide quality care to all, in a cost effective way.” He states that, “while your taxes may [will] go up to pay for this publicly funded program, that expense will be more than offset by the money you are saving by the elimination of private insurance.”

By saying it’s publicly funded, it sounds like he’s selling it as free healthcare for all – and I’ll guarantee you, this is what his followers are hearing. Well, it’s not free. He never says anything about how much the “free” government system will cost you and me. Anyone currently on Medicare can confirm it is hardly “free.”

First, as Sanders admits, are increased taxes. How much will this be? No one knows. Know one can possibly know. Just be assured that it will be significant. read more

Let’s Eliminate the Electoral College

What a shocker. Hillary wants to dump the Electoral College because she won the popular vote. Frankly, with the recent revelations about all the election fraud, I’m not convinced she did that.

from the Blaze:

Hillary Clinton calls for elimination of the Electoral College

Host Anderson Cooper noted that Clinton refers to the “godforsaken Electoral College” in her new memoir about the election, titled, “What Happened.”

Video Podcast – Pastor for Reproductive Rights – Price Gouging Can be Good

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A Female Methodist Reverend claims she was “moved by Scripture” to become an abortion advocate. She says her interpretation of the Bible called her to join the pro-abortion movement.

No one likes price-gouging – especially during times of exceptional need, as in the case of Hurricane victims. I argue that these pirates who jack up prices of goods and services actually perform a needed service to the desperate evacuees. read more

Enough Broken Promises Mr. President

Why are we wasting our time talking about DACA? As much as I hate giving up on an issue, this one is a waste of our energies. The 800,000 (to start) illegal aliens are here to stay. And make no mistake – they are illegal aliens. Whether they are said to be “protected” by an illegal presidential action appears to be irrelevant.

Obama knew, as do the majority of the political left, that it has become easy to just create an entitlement class. Obama simply used a “stop me if you dare” executive memo to do so. With no such authority, he singlehandedly established, what Michelle Malkin describes  as a new “deserving” class.

She frustratingly repeats the tiresome refrain of DREAMer advocates:

“They don’t deserve to be punished.”
“They deserve protection.”
“They deserve the American dream.”
Deserve, deserve, deserve.

And why? Well – there is no why. There no longer has to be. Obama and the left knew that all they needed was time. Enough time for our political class to grow comfortable with idea of a new entitlement group. Time is the friend of all entitlements. They knew that given enough time, the new entitlement would become the new normal. Once it is installed and a little time is allowed to pass, it’s there for good. read more

The Left Equates Trump to a Latin America Dictator

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Another day brings more insanity from the left.

As the novelty of statue-felling is slowing, it’s time to return to the old stand-by: Trump Derangement Syndrome. Now they’re worried that Trump will refuse to vacate the White House when his term(s) is up.

It is interesting that the left thinks of Trump exactly what we thought of Obama earlier in his reign of terror – that he would not vacate the White House. Some even posited that Obama would attempt and end around the Constitution and run for a third term, due to his overwhelming popularity.

But later in his presidency, Obama, I thought, couldn’t wait to get out. He had accomplished virtually everything he set out to do. And in the end, he did in fact hightail it out of there to begin a lifestyle of the rich and famous, filled with champagne wishes and caviar dreams (h/t Robin Leach).

Yet, as Barack is living it up, his radical legacy is living on within the pro-communist Antifa movement. They’ve taking the baton from Obama, and are seeking to “change our traditions, change our history and move into a different place as a nation” (h/t Michelle Obama).

Like Obama and the radicals that came before him, like Alinsky, Cloward and Piven and many others – Antifa seeks to upend virtually all American traditions. read more

Video Podcast – Senator Ben Sasse Takes to Facebook

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse (R, wrote a fairly lengthy Facebook post recently. When he posts to Facebook, it is usually very lengthy.

The main crux of the post was regarding the uptick in violence between the radical Left and the radical alt-Left. In case you are wondering who is who, let me clue you in.

The radical left, since the glory days of the Soviet Union, are the communists. They have renamed themselves as Antifa, or anti-fascists. The alternative Left are the fascists. Now you know. There is no one from the right – regular or alternative.

Sasse made several points – some good and some not so good. Misguided, if you will.

I discuss most them. I’d also like to apologies for almost being off camera for a segment! read more

Pro-Communist Protesters don’t Really Care about Slavery

by: the Common Constitutionalist

There is nothing good about slavery. Owning another human being is lower than low. I would hope we can all agree.

We on the reasonable right knew that this push to expunge slave owners from American history would not end with Civil War statues, monuments and the like. We knew these radicals wouldn’t be satisfied with just Civil War era slave holders. We knew it would rapidly jump to the Founding Fathers (as it has),– the same Founders that the progressive left has been trying to erase since the days of Woodrow Wilson.

We also know that it won’t end with the slave-owning Founders. We know that this is a means to an end. If our political leadership – locally, and at the State and Federal level, continue to capitulate to, or worse, join these ill-guided rabble-rousers, the next demand will be to insist that our founding documents are, by default, illegitimate.

If Washington, Jefferson, Madison, et al, are erased, how could the documents they created live on?

The supposed protesters don’t really care about slavery. If they did, they would be forced to take a good long look at the ideology they are promoting. Communism has enslaved many millions more people than all American slave holders/traders combined. read more
