Mexican Drug Smugglers Find a New Way to Cross the Border

Compressed air cannons are great. By properly employing one, you can launch almost anything, assuming you can generate enough pressure.

We’ve all seen the Punkin Chunkin, pumpkin launching contests, held at least annually around the United States. These guys (and girls) roll out massive cannons with super long barrels. The longer the barrel, the more speed can be generated and the further the pumpkin will travel. Because of the length of these barrels the pumpkins can be traveling at 600 mph when exiting the cannon which result in great distances.

The television show Myth Busters broke the sound barrier using nothing more than a super long air cannon and a ping-pong ball. The guys on Top Gear (the English original – not the crappy new versions) launched several cars using only an air cannon.

Medieval battles might have been more interesting as the attacking force could have fired projectiles with air cannons, rather than those clunky monstrous trebuchets. It would have been easy to fire over castle walls and a lot more accurate. read more

With All that is Happening – The Left Chooses the Birther Issue

In the past 3 or 4 days, the old Obama “Birther Claims” are again making headlines. This time is that candidate Donald Trump is attempting to close the door on it by saying that Barack Benito Milhous Hussein Obama (ht: Mark Levin) was born in the United States – period.

You know it – the claim that Obama was born in Kenya and therefore not eligible to be president – the claim that was first implicitly floated by the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2007 and 2008. Yes, that one.

It wasn’t Donald Trump who originally fired up the birther train. He just took it to ridiculous heights.

It was actually a political stunt by Hillary Clinton’s chief strategist Mark Penn who wrote in 2007: “His [Obama] roots to basic American values and culture are at best limited. I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and his values.” read more

Of All People – Hillary Tries to Play the Race Card

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday I was critical of Donald Trump’s new and evidently “evolving” illegal immigration policy. Some Trump supporters didn’t take kindly to any criticism of their man. That’s too bad, because we constitutionalists were in favor of Trump’s original hard line on illegal aliens. It’s a shame he appears to be softening.

But in order to be fair and intellectually honest, we will also defend The Donald when the Dragon Queen, Hillary Clinton, throws false accusations his way.

Of all the things Hillary could accuse Trump of, she and her team have decided it is time to play the tried-and-true democrat race card. Historically this tactic has worked quite effectively against most, if not all Republicans – mainly because most Republicans are too spineless to fight back and tell the truth about the Democrat Party.

We can only conclude that most on the right still have not educated themselves on the roots of the Democrat party and instead accept the false narrative that Democrats are the champions of minorities. Of course, it is the exact opposite. The Democrat party has been the party of racism, segregation and eugenics, whereas it was the Republicans who fought for equal rights and the closing, or at least defunding of the black eugenics factory, Planned Parenthood.

Obama was obviously able to play the race card because he is… well… black. But for Hillary to attempt it is a laugh riot. Her and Bill, throughout their history in public life together, have befriended and lionized many known racists. read more

Candidate Trump on Immigration – Which One do We Believe

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Trump says he will follow the immigration laws. Actually – no he didn’t. Trump stated in his town hall interview with Sean Hannity: “We wanna follow the laws. You know we have very strong laws…in this country…and I don’t know if you know but Bush and even Obama sends people back. We can be more aggressive in that, but we want to follow the laws.” Want to and will are not synonymous.

Before I go any further, I wish to state that this is not a bash-Trump article. Readers know I am not a Trump guy, but I am not treating Trump any different than I would any candidate, on either side. I am only attempting to be intellectually honest and consistent.

I was all for Trump’s original immigration policy. I’m thankful he brought it up in the first place. And we constitutionalists are still in favor of his original policy. If you are here illegally, you must go – period. There was no time frame attached to his original claim – nor is there a statute of limitations in the myriad of immigration laws on the books.

If The Donald does what he originally said he would do, which earned him the nomination and the dedicated following he has, he would in fact be adhering to the immigration laws. And he would be the first one since Eisenhower in 1954 to do so. On this I defended Trump about this time last year. read more

I’d Cast My Vote for Trump’s Speechwriter

by: the Common Constitutionalist

On his Monday evening radio program, Mark Levin spoke of Donald Trump’s foreign policy/immigration speech. He said: “Trump gave a pretty good speech today and people ought to listen to it. When he’s focused – when he’s on message – and when he says things that most of us agree with, we ought to acknowledge that – if we’re going to be intellectually honest.”

This may be the first time I’ve kind of disagreed with Mark. I, like Mark and many true conservatives who haven’t yet partaken of the Trump Kool-Aid, thought it was a great speech – probably the best he’s done. But this wasn’t a Trump speech. It was measured and well thought out, lacking (most of) the usual bombast – a speech I personally don’t believe Trump could write himself. And that’s my problem. I’m not sure this is Trump’s message – at least not consistently.

We’ve all heard Trump speak extemporaneously and it’s not pretty. It used to be effective, but now it’s just tiresome and repetitive. But lately he has confined himself, for the most part, to reading teleprompter speeches – which is much better for him.

However, it is painfully obvious when he strays from the prompter. He repeats himself – he overemphasizes his statements to the point where they sound cartoonish. He then either run’s out of exclamations or realizes he’s strayed and it’s back on the teleprompter. read more

In the Vernacular of the LGBTQ Community – I Guess I am Politically Questioning

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Give me a reason to vote for Trump!

Mark Levin has as much as said he’s voting for Trump. He certainly isn’t endorsing him, but as he describes, his choice is between slitting his own throat (a vote for Hillary) and cutting his own arm off (a vote for Trump). He says he sure is not going to slit his throat, and unlikely to cut his arm off, but given the choice…

I’m obviously unconvinced of Trump. That’s not accurate. I am convinced of Trump – convinced that he will out-progressive George Bush and will out-Hoover, Herbert Hoover. However, I will not say he’s unqualified, as Hillary has. He is qualified to be president.

I’m also convinced of Hillary – that she is possibly – check that – absolutely the most corrupt individual to run for the presidency in this country’s history. Yet she is qualified.

I’m tired of hearing from both sides that the other’s candidate is unqualified. Both he and Hillary are fully qualified to be president. What? Are you kidding, you may be saying? read more

Snoop Dogg’s Trump Song Isn’t Disturbing but a Parade Float Is

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In July, the piece of crap, drug using and women abusing rapper Snoop Dogg posted an anti-Trump video on his Instagram account. The “song,” and I use the word “song” in the loosest of terms, I guess is called F**k Donald Trump.

The lyrics are very catchy and must have taken him…say…30 seconds to write, as every other word is “yeah N**ger, or F**k Donald Trump.

I’m going to go way out on a limb and conclude Mr. Dogg doesn’t care much for Donald Trump.

After forcing myself to watch about 15 seconds of his masterpiece-of-crap, I proceeded to the nearest search engine to look for the appropriate backlash from every major news outlet in the land, decrying the caustic and racist nature of the “song,” and defending the Trumpster.

I thought surely, despite their misgivings with The Donald, all the major news outlets would join in to condemn such a hate-filled song.

Sooprise – Sooprise! Scrolling through two or three full pages in Google search, I found not a single posting by CNN, the Washington or Huffington Post, NYT, Salon – nobody. read more

Podcast – Newtown Gets a New School – Emails Prove Democrats are Despicable

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Newtown, Ct. has unveiled a brand new Sandy Hook elementary school to replace the school made famous by the mass shooting in 2012. The new school is a magnificently designed piece of architecture, which has not a think to do with teaching little children to read and write. It is said to warm and inviting but has the security of a super-max prison.

The DNC and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) had their emails hacked, apparently by the Ruskies. WikiLeaks has published them, showing the world what we’ve been saying about the dems for years – they are despicable human beings from top to bottom. As it turns out, it all may have been prevented. Listen to find out how. read more

A Patriot Speaks at the Democrat Convention – How Odd

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The political world is buzzing over Khizr Khan’s democrat convention speech the other night, in which he urged his fellow Muslims and immigrants not to take this election lightly.

His speech started well – very patriotic – a story of an immigrant family who, in 1980, came to America with little or nothing. Khan said that with hard work they “could share in and contribute to its [America’s] blessings.”

Well, sir – you sounded very sincere – and if you were – why on Earth did you choose to speak at the hate-America and blame-America-first convention? If you have been in this country for any length of time – and you have – you should have learned that the democrat party is party of no work, not hard work. Its convention was one speaker after another either demanding or promising some sort of big government giveaway.

And why is Mr. Khan urging immigrants to not take the election lightly? Last I checked, “immigrants” are not supposed to be allowed to vote – or does that just apply to Republican immigrants. read more

Podcast – Germany Suffers a Terrorist Attack – Trumps Creeping Convention Speech

An 18 year old loner killed 9 and injured 16 in Munich Germany in another mass shooting event. It doesn’t appear to be ISIS-inspired this time, however this was no run-of-the-mill 18 year old whack-job. Reports claim him to be Iranian-German, which means he’s Iranian living in German. Find out more in segment one.

Segment two the discussion turns The Donald and his magnificent acceptance speech at the Republican convention. And it was good – well written and well delivered – and perfect for the casual watcher and listener. But to those of us who know what to look for, it was creepy and scary. read more
