Andrew Young is More Reasonable than John Lewis

I’ve never been a fan of Andrew Young. I always knew him as Mayor of Atlanta, as he presided over the city when I lived there. But he was also a Jimmy Carter hack and executive director of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, although it wasn’t nearly as radical back then as it is now.

In other words, Andrew Young is no conservative. Yet he has some rather reasonable responses to queries from Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Channel regarding the Trump inauguration.

Should Martial Law be Imposed as Rosie Insists?

One of the unique things about western society, western democracies, and our own representative republic, is the peaceful transition of power.

Many nations have never known such a thing, as power is simple bequeathed from one family member to another, as in Syria or North Korea. It may also be obtained by coup, military or otherwise. But our system is relatively new and atypical.

We fight it out for months at time – but when it’s finally over, a winner is declared and life goes on. Sure, the losers can and do cry crocodile tears from time to time, but at the end of the day, the politically vanquished peacefully give way to the victor(s), as will occur on Friday.

Sometime between 11 AM and 2 PM, Donald Trump and Mike Pence will take the Oath of Office and be sworn in as the next President and Vice President of the United States.

That is unless current President Barack Obama declares martial law and suspends the transfer of power. No really – some are suggested that this could happen, or should, at least according to one in particular. read more

Former Black Panther Destroys John Lewis

Former member of the radical`60’s era Black Panthers, Mason Weaver, went on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show last night to discuss civil rights icon John Lewis and Lewis’s feud with Donald Trump.

In a rather stunning exposé, Weaver completely dismantles Lewis’s argument that Trump is somehow illegitimate. Rather, Weaver insists that it is Lewis and the other phony social justice warriors who are illegitimate and are the ones to blame for all the problems of the black community.

Trump Meets With Possible Supreme Court Pick – The Left Hates Him

Judge William Pryor

Yesterday, Townhall.com reported  that President-elect Donald Trump had just met with one of the 21 members of his well-publicized supreme Court selection list.

The man Trump chose to meet with this past Saturday is Judge William Pryor of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The 11th Circuit services the States of Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Coincidently, Pryor served as deputy Attorney General of Alabama for two years under Jeff Sessions. After Sessions was elected to the Senate in 1997, Pryor was elevated to Alabama Attorney General. Small world isn’t it.

A few years later (2003) ‘W’ nominated him for the 11th Circuit, but the dems successfully stalled the pick. He was later recess-appointed by Bush and confirmed by a narrow margin. read more

Two Senators Have a Problem with Tillerson, but not Hillary Clinton or John Kerry

So far Donald Trump’s picks for various Cabinet positions have not gone swimmingly. Both Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson have been grilled thus far.

Now, we would expect democrats to make a fuss, despite their inability to really affect the outcome of any of the confirmations. Heck, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, democrat hack and race hustler, even made history by attempting to dress down fellow Senator Sessions. But of course this was all a show for the TV cameras, as Booker is actually auditioning to be the next Obama, knowing that Obama gained national exposure for his keynote address at the 2004 Democrat National Convention. Obama was a nobody prior to that. After his performance, Booker is still a nobody.

What isn’t typical are two Republicans Senators openly stating that they are not only concerned with Tillerson and his ties with Russia, but can’t say whether they will vote for Trump’s Secretary of State selection.

On Wednesday, Rubio said he’s “prepared to what’s right,” regarding his confirmation vote. This sounds to me, at least for now, that “what’s right” is a no vote on Tillerson. read more

Democrats to Republicans – What’s Your Hurry?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Here in what is rapidly becoming the socialist State of New Hampshire, our two radical leftist Senators are complaining about the confirmation process of president elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees.

We hear the typical rhetoric about the extreme nature of Trump’s selections – the racist, the climate change deniers, the Putin sycophants. Naturally these are the claimed arguments against the likes of many, but the two senators are also whining about the speed at which these confirmations are happening.

NH1.com reported  that, “on the eve of a confirmation hearing frenzy in the nation’s capital, New Hampshire’s senior U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen warned that ‘the Republican leadership is talking about asking us to act on nominees who have not been through the vetting process.’”

“And in a joint-interview with NH1 News, the Granite State’s newest senator and fellow Democrat [hack] Maggie Hassan said that ‘we don’t have basic information’ on President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees, adding that it ‘is absolutely essential that we have time to thoroughly vet these nominees.’”

Really – you don’t have time to thoroughly vet even the first two nominees, Senator Jeff Sessions and Marine General John F. Kelly. read more

The Left is Already in Melt Down Over Trump – Ain’t It Grand

by: the Common Constitutionalist

He still has 10 days before taking office, but I’m liking Donald Trump already.

Oh, it has nothing to do with policy. We don’t really know what Trump’s policies will look like. Many think they know by the campaign and post-election speeches given by him and his “people.” However, no one as yet really knows what President The Donald will do or how he will govern.

The reason I’m liking Trump is his ability to drive the left into full blown melt-down by barely lifting a finger.

Leftist websites are already in panic mode and “overrated” Hollywood stars are soiling their awards with their own tears. To hear them lament, we should expect the Trump presidency to be a combination of Jim Crow, Apartheid, Soviet Gulags and capitalist robber-barons.

Unlike some on the right who were willing to give Obama a chance (count me as NOT one of them), the left has preemptively condemned everything Trump, as well as everything Republican.

We’ve all seen or heard the now famous speech given by the hopelessly overrated actress Meryl Streep, but what you may have missed is another actress, seen on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards. read more

Trump Better be Serious about Border Security Promises

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It certainly appears that president-elect Donald Trump is serious about implementing at least some of his campaign promises. He better be – and not a moment too soon – because it’s much worse at the border than we’re being told.

The internet exploded on Tuesday when Reuters reported on an internal memo they obtained from the Department of Homeland Security.

After an exhaustive search of the web, it appears I am the only one to ask what I deemed to be a rather obvious question. How did Reuters obtain this memo? Virtually every article I perused, including the Reuters piece, described it as an “internal agency memo.” No one, including Reuters, ever said it was leaked, nor a Freedom of Information Act demand put on them to release it, as conservative media must do. No – just that it was a DHS “internal agency memo” reviewed by Reuters. I thought that odd. Is Reuters, and other leftist media outlets, privy to all DHS “internal” memos?

Anyway, Reuters wrote that the memo described a December 5, 2016 meeting between DHS and the Trump transition team. Trump’s team is said to have asked “the Department of Homeland Security to assess all assets available for border wall and barrier construction.” That’s a good sign. My guess is they probably have plenty of assets, as they sure haven’t been using any. read more

The Left Likes Competition – Wait – No They Don’t

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Remember when Obama said part of the problem with Obamacare in some areas, is that there is literally no competition? Entire swaths of States had but one insurance carrier, which translated to zero competition.

He said that a lack of competition is a bad thing. It affords the one provider an opportunity to take advantage of customers and of course, service suffers as well.

“Obamacare resulted in the creation of 23 co-ops across the nation.” wrote Reason.com in July 2016. “Some of which served hundreds of thousands of customers. As of this month, however, only 10 remain fully operational. The other 13 have either shut down, or announced that they plan to by the end of the year.

That same month, in a Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) article, Obama proposed creating a government run insurance plan, or a “public option,” that would exist alongside private health insurance, at least in the mostly rural areas where competition is sparse or nonexistent. He wrote that, “Congress should revisit a public plan to compete alongside private insurers in areas of the country where competition is limited.”

Some on the right said – there – you see – he is admitting Obamacare isn’t working. read more

Podcast – Breaking News – Obama Staying in Washington

Yeah – some breaking news. We all knew he was going nowhere after he leaves office. He’s actually moving only about a mile down to street. A virtual stone’s throw from the White House. Gee – I wonder why he would choose to remain so close? It couldn’t be in an effort to protect his leftist legacy – which is more important than the office of President. It also couldn’t have anything to do with disrupting the new Trump administration, could it? I guess we’ll have to just wait and see. read more
