Trump U.N. Speech Will Not Soon be Forgotten

The Trump speech at the United Nations was a walk-off grand slam home-run. And I don’t even like baseball. I thought I was watching Big Papi!

But enough already. I feel like a darn Yo-Yo – or maybe Michael Corleone, from the Godfather 3. “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.”

No, I’m not talking about the Mafia. I’m referring to my support of President Trump.

I’ve said at least a few times that I’ve developed shin splints as a result of jumping off and back on the Trump bandwagon. He’ll do or say something positive or constructive for the nation, and then follow it up a day or two later with something dopey – or vice versa.

This time around, he did something dopey, i.e., meeting with Schumer and Pelosi. I don’t care how clever you think Trump is – you don’t make deals with the devil(s) – nor do you even agree to meet with them. You don’t lend those two any legitimacy of any kind – ever. For his dalliance with the two democrats, I said I had one foot on and one off the Trump bandwagon.

Then he turns around and gives a speech for the ages at the United Nations – one that should swell the hearts of Americans who are sick and tired of the United States kowtowing to the despots and dictators who populate the U.N. read more

Leftist Latinos Demand End to Free Speech

It’s a fact – possibly provable by science – that what little common sense many high school kids have, rapidly fades away when they go off to college. With any and all parental supervision removed, students believe they have license to be stupid.

Such it was at Cornell University, when a student and member of the Zeta Psi fraternity was heard chanting, “build that wall.”

The chant was heard, “near the Latino Living Center early Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump ordered the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] program,” writes the Cornell Daily Sun.

To clarify the above statement, as the Cornell Daily Sun will surely not, President Trump did not “end” the DACA program. He suspended it for six months to allow the correct branch of government, the Legislative, to craft a lawful solution.

They, like all other leftist journals, would prefer their readers to believe racist Trump just ended it. I’m not defending Trump’s decision. As it was an illegal action, I think he should have just ended it and left it at that, but I’m not president. read more

WND Exclusive – The Debt-Ceiling Big Lie

By making a deal with the devil and siding with Chuck Schumer, President Trump may be lurching toward the dark side. And for what – an $8 billion disaster-relief package?

Eight billion dollars is a lot of money for the likes of us, but to the government it is nothing. They waste or misplace that amount in a week or two.

Heck, with a budget of around $4,000 billion ($4 trillion), the feds spend about $11 billion a day. We’re expected to believe that they can’t divert less than a day’s outlay to help out the truly needy – those who have lost everything in Texas and Louisiana, in some cases? Not to mention those who will surely lose everything if Irma tracks into Florida. We’re supposed to buy this load of crap? read more

Enough Broken Promises Mr. President

by: the Common Constitutionalist

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

Nothing More Important than Saving DACA

by: the Common Constitutionalist

President Trump appears to be as good as his campaign promise – to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program illegally instituted by Obama.

Well, he kind of did and kind of didn’t. Although some on the right are praising him for ending the amnesty program, he did so with a caveat.

It seems nothing can be done cleanly in Washington. There must always be an exception or fine print.

Although the DACA program will not accept new arrivals, and that’s good, Trump did give Congress the opportunity, with a 6 month deadline, to “fix it” by way of legislation.

This of course is the way any immigration policy should be defined – by a law – crafted and passed by Congress, which has sole purview over all matters concerning naturalization, and by extension, immigration.

CNN reports that, “Under existing law, before DACA, these children were just as subject to deportation as their parents, even though they were blameless in the decision to cross the border and most have known no other home besides the United States.” read more

Video Podcast – I’m Dreamin of an End to DACA

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

President Trump has plans to end Obama’s signature program this Tuesday. Let’s hope he does. I explain why DACA is unfair to Americans and frankly is illegal and unconstitutional. Recall that the program was cooked up and sent out as a memo, called an Executive Action.

I also discuss Florida Governor Rick Scott’s convoluted position in favoring the DACA program. He wants to make the Dream Act permanent. Good for him – NOT. read more

The Left Equates Trump to a Latin America Dictator

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

So the President Pardoned Sheriff Joe – So What

By: the Common Constitutionalist

I don’t often disagree with the Washington Examiner, but I’m afraid I must this time.

They posted an article entitled, “Trump, once the law and order candidate, embraces lawless disorder with Arpaio pardon.”

So now it’s not only the left who are piling on Joe Arpaio and President Trump, but those on the right are joining the chorus.

You would expect that Trump would have received mass-condemnation from the left. After all, they are the soft-on crime party of illegal aliens. However, many on the supposed right, or who at least call themselves Republicans, are also screeching at Trump’s pardon of the former Maricopa County sheriff.

“The speaker does not agree with the decision,” Doug Andres, spokesman for Speaker Paul Ryan said. “Law-enforcement officials have a special responsibility to respect the rights of everyone in the United States. We should not allow anyone to believe that responsibility is diminished by this pardon.”

And what is all this hubbub about? Why did Sheriff Joe have to be pardoned? He was found guilty of criminal contempt by a leftist Clinton appointee, U.S. District Court judge Susan Bolton. She found him guilty of defying her order to cease the “profiling” of Latinos. read more

Valarie Plame Wants to Delete Trump

Did you hear? Valerie Plame-Wilson wants to purchase Twitter for the sole purpose of putting a stop to President Trump’s tweeting. She even set up a GoFundMe page  for fellow leftists to help her in the purchase. Last I checked Valerie had raised almost $14,000 of the $1 billion she desires for the purchase.

Assuming she gets any where close to the billion, it’s still a tad shy of what those in-the-know think it’s is worth. Last September Forbes estimated  Twitter to have a “market valuation of $15.7 billion.” That is considerably higher than today’s market cap of $12.33 billion, but still a far cry from her fundraising goal.

On the GoFundMe page, Plame-Wilson writes that, “Donald Trump has done a lot of horrible things on Twitter. From emboldening white supremacists to promoting violence against journalists, his tweets damage the country and put people in harm’s way. But threatening actual nuclear war with North Korea takes it to a dangerous new level.”

This was her response to Trump’s tweet from August 11th, where he warned, “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path.” read more

Maybe Trump Really Did Win the Popular Vote

Let’s say, just for fun, that you were a flight attendant. One of your jobs is to check the number of passengers vs. what’s on the flight manifest. Too few and you would chalk it up to someone missing their flight. Oh well. But what if there were too many passengers? You would figure there’s a problem.

The same might go for a cruise ship, like the Love Boat. Maybe Gopher, the ship’s purser, found a discrepancy. He discovered there was a stowaway – or maybe several more on board than the ship’s manifest indicated. Naturally you would think he would alert the authorities. Stowing away is illegal.

You know what else is illegal? Falsely registering to vote. But this, according to the left, simply isn’t happening. It was just another hyperbolic claim from our unhinged President.

However IBD, reporting on Judicial Watch’s Election Integrity Project, found that, “some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America’s adult citizens.” You don’t say. read more
