Can We Keep Our Eyes on the Prize

Update: I neglected to mention another option to avoiding doing the hard things like a full repeal of ObamaCare. A weak-kneed roll-out of ObamaCare-lite. Although there hasn’t been time yet to dissect the new proposal, you can bet it doesn’t resemble anything they have been promising us. I can’t wait to hear the tough-talking sales pitch of the watered down bill.

What has everyone in politics, every cable news outlet, every talk radio program been discussing since Friday? Well, it’s not ObamaCare, cutting taxes, or really any of Trump’s big agenda items. Of course, it’s wiretapping, meetings with Russians and tweeting.

For now four solid days we have been pummeled with wiretapping scandal stories. If it’s not specifically about wiretapping, it’s about Jeff Sessions or others meeting, or not meeting with the Ruskies. Oh, and also the salaciously commented on photo of Kelly Ann Conway perched on the couch in the Oval Office.

That’s four days the administration and those on Capital Hill have not been thinking of or acting on the campaign promises that were made to us – a full repeal of ObamaCare – cutting taxes and confirming the next supreme Court justice, etc., etc.

This one story has sucked all the oxygen out of the room. On Monday, Rush Limbaugh spent virtually his entire show – three full hours harping on the feud between Trump and the democrats and zero time on anything else. I don’t listen to Hannity anymore, but I’ll bet he did the same. read more

Mark Levin Presents Evidence of Obama Wiretapping

We’ve always known those in the Obama administration were dirty. I, as have many others have chronicled offense after offense Obama and his minions have perpetrated on political opponents, journalists and private citizens.

But now, we hope, it may be finally catching up to him and them. Yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Mark Levin put forth no less than eight pieces of evidence of the Obama administration attempt to derail the Trump campaign and to derail his presidency. As Levin put it – “the evidence is about the Obama administration spying.”

Mark says it’s not a question of whether there was spying, “we know they did..” The question is “who did they spy on, the extent of the spying.”

Watch Mark make his case: read more

Podcast – The Dirty Dems vs Jeff Sessions – Stop Listening to Ivanka

The democrats, led by the despicable Chuckie Schumer are pulling out all the stops, doing everything they can to disrupt President Trump, his Cabinet and his agenda. Senate Minority Leader Schumer has called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign – and anything less will be unacceptable to him and the rest of radicals in the party – which is all of them. They need to be stopped.

President Trump would be wise to stop listening to his daughter Ivanka. She is battling with Senior Adviser Steve Bannon over global warming. Bannon wants Trump to dump the Paris Climate agreement, while Ivanka and her hubby Jared Kushner want daddy to drop his opposition to the agreement. read more

Podcast – A Look Back at the Obama Years

In this historic podcast – historic in that it is the final podcast of the Obama presidency – we take a stroll down memory lane with the Fiscal Times. They recall how fabulous Obama was and that, and I quote, there were “no major scandals” during his eight years.

Oh really – not one. The folks at the Fiscal Times must have severe memory loss, because it took me all of about 15 minutes to come up with a list of a couple of dozen scandals involving Obama and his minions.

Let’s take a jog down memory lane, shall we.

I also briefly touch upon Obama’s wild shift on Cuban immigration – probably because most of them vote Republican. read more

Russia Did NOT Provide Clinton Emails

This claim is unsubstantiated as yet.

from: Alana Goodman In Washington, Dc For Dailymail.com

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails – they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for ‘disgusted’ Democratic whistleblowers

  • Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and associate of Julian Assange, told the Dailymail.com  he flew to Washington, D.C. for emails
  • He claims he had a clandestine hand-off in a wooded area near American University with one of the email sources 
  • The leakers’ motivation was ‘disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the  ’tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders’
  • Murray says: ‘The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks’
  • ‘Regardless of whether the Russians hacked into the DNC, the documents Wikileaks published did not come from that,’ Murray insists
  • Murray is a controversial figure who was relieved of his post as British ambassador amid allegations of misconduct but is close to Wikileaks

Obama to Hillary – Under the Bus You Go

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are standing on a street corner waiting for a bus. As the bus approaches, Obama grabs Hillary and tosses her out on to the street, where she is then run over by the oncoming bus.

Of course this would never happen – literally. Neither Obama nor Clinton would ever be caught dead on a bus. Under it – yes, but not in one.

Naturally I’m kidding about Barack tossing Hillary under the bus. He has not the strength to do so. Again – kidding. These are the jokes. I’m here all night.

But seriously – it does appear that Obama has figuratively thrown her highness under the bus, again, for her ever-growing email scandal. I say again, for this isn’t the first time the president has done so. read more

Podcast – Is the FBI for Real This Time – Outrage over a Letter

It’s everywhere! If you are following the goings on in the presidential campaign, you can’t help but have heard the news that FBI Director James Comey has reopened the case against Hillary Clinton regarding the use of emails. What we don’t know is why, at virtually the eleventh hour, has he decided this. I kick around a couple of theories.

I, the Common Constitutionalist, recently received a get acquainted letter from the new Superintendent of Public Schools in the district where I reside. I made the mistake of opening the email and was outraged at what I saw. read more

There are no Issues Other than Trump is a Womanizer

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Who can’t wait for this election to be over? ME!! I’m tired of talking about – tired of writing about it. And the reason is that no one, me included, is actually writing or speaking of any substance – because there is known to report.

It’s all Bullcrap – it’s all scandal. There is no foreign policy – no domestic policy. The closest thing to substance anyone can report are poll results – and most of them are not even substantive. Virtually all of the best known (to the public) polls show Hillary with a gigantic lead. The only polls which show Trump leading are Rasmussen and IBD/TIPP. Interestingly, these two are the only polls which happen to be historically accurate – with IBD/TIPP being the most accurate over the past three presidential election cycles.

In other words, polls have become as scandalous as the stories relating to both flawed candidates.

Will we ever return to a time when elections are, for the most part, about issues and policy? Probably not. It has now become a never-ending game of gotcha. The party who can create or make public a new scandal, regarding the other, closest to the election, will win. This is what we’ve come to. read more

Trump Suffers the Indignity of Multiple Accusers – Much the Way Cruz Did

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Recall that this past March saw the National Enquirer print a story that Ted Cruz had five mistresses.

What ever happened to the extramarital affair story? There appears to have been no follow-up. We haven’t heard a peep from the supposed five. The story just vanished. This would lead any reasonable person to think that the story was bogus and his buddy at the Enquirer merely made it up to help advance Trump across the primary finish line.

At the time, few really believed that clean cut, nerdy Cruz had the chops to have even one mistress, let alone five. On the other hand, plenty believed that Trump had at least something to do with the Enquirer story.

For one, Trump and Enquirer chief executive David Pecker are evidently very close. So close in fact that Pecker has used Trump’s private jet to fly from New York to Florida to meet with Trump in the past. And two, that Trump is the polar opposite of Cruz and that he would have no problem playing dirty politics.

This, you might say, was Trump’s October surprise they pulled out to use against Cruz to help seal his fate.

Recalling this, it comes as a bit of a surprise to hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth by the Trump people that the “media” are conspiring with the Clinton campaign to trot out all these supposed victims of Trump abuse after all these years. read more

Podcast – The FBI is as Corrupt as All the Rest – San Francisco Keeps its Open-Air Urinal

James Comey, Director of the FBI, has evidently sold his soul to the Obama administration. The days of an independent Federal Bureau of Investigation are over. Comey has joined forces with Obama and Hillary Clinton to obstruct bringing Hillary to justice. By making side deals and destroying evidence, Comey has ceased to America’s top cop and has now become part of Hillary’s defense team.

A Christian Group in San Francisco filed a lawsuit against the city to remove an open-air urinal from a popular park. The pissoir, as it is called, was installed in Dolores Park in an attempt to stop individuals from relieving themselves pretty much everywhere else. The Christian group says its smell bad and is generally offensive. A judge did not agree. read more
