Trump Was Right and We Were Wrong

I wish to congratulate President-Elect Donald J Trump. He ran a remarkable campaign. One that neither we on the right, nor the establishment republicans, nor the dems thought was possible.

What no one counted on was the unwavering support for Trump. It did seem that no matter what he did, his ever-expanding flock never wavered. This is something neither we on the right, and certainly the left, ever counted on, or ever really understood. But someone did.

And that someone is Salena Zito at the Atlantic.com. – who has also written for the Weekly Standard and is board member of the Center for Media and Public Policy at the Heritage Foundation.

What everyone appeared to have missed, Ms. Zito figured out back in September, which, in my opinion, why he prevailed.

In Zito’s article entitled, “Taking Trump Seriously, Not Literally,” she writes of an appearance and speech by Trump at a Shale Insight Conference. She pointed observed that,“The 70-year-old Republican nominee took his time walking from the green room toward the stage. He stopped to chat with the waiters, service workers, police officers, and other convention staffers facilitating the event. There were no selfies, no glad-handing for votes, no trailing television cameras. Out of view of the press, Trump warmly greets everyone he sees, asks how they are, and, when he can, asks for their names and what they do.” read more

If Trump Loses, it Will be all on Him

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh used what I think was his entire program to make a last ditch case for Donald Trump.

He stated that in the past, as the election nears, even leftist pollsters would begin cleaning up their act, to more accurately reflect the reality of elections. I agree with this. I too have said this.

Early on in the general election cycle, liberal polls consistently over sample to make it appear that the democrat is leading, in an attempt to influence voters. As the election closes in, the polls tighten to reflect reality. This is done so that polling companies can maintain a record of accuracy that they can point to later to solicit business.

However, Rush says it isn’t happening this time around  – that polls are still insisting that Hillary is maintaining a lead and will likely win.

Rush says: “My point is I think the polls are still being used as weapons and that’s a departure from my previously stated theories and beliefs. And I finally asked myself, I mean, if we don’t trust the news every day from these people, why would we trust their polls?”

He added that, “the purpose of all of this today in the Drive-By Media is to try to convince you it’s over. The objective is to dampen down Trump support and turnout at the polls. So much of this election has not gone the way the Hillary camp projected or wants it to go.” read more

Podcast – The Trumpster vs Hillary and the Z-Family – Pamela Geller Sets the Record Straight

Hillary Clinton joined for the Zs on Friday – Jay-Z and Beyonce, Mrs. Z, for a concert to promote her now-troubled campaign. Grandma Hillary must have been so proud, as Jay-Z took to the stage to belt out, no doubt in her honor, his many hits about n**gas, and pimps – with every other word being the f-bomb. It didn’t take long for Trump to catch wind of the concert and the foul-mouthed rapper, who supports Hillary.

Pam Geller rebuts a recent article in the Huffington Post where the author describes the prophet Muhammad as a feminist. I give a run-down of Geller’s dismantling of the assertion that Muhammad was a champion of women’s rights. read more

A Vote for Trump

“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of many things: Of shoes – and ships and sealing-wax – Of cabbages–and kings – And why the sea is boiling hot – And whether pigs have wings.” (Lewis Carroll)

I’d like to announce that indeed, in 2016, pigs do have wings and can fly. I know this must be so, because I told someone months ago that I would only vote for Donald J. Trump, when pigs fly.

On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, at approximately 0700 EST, the Common Constitutionalist will enter my local polling facility, on the back of a flying pig, and cast my vote for the Trumpster.

To my regular readers and listeners, this will come as a surprise, as I have said repeatedly, that I will no longer vote for someone just to vote against the other candidate – even if the other candidate is the most corrupt individual ever to seek high office – bar none.

Many have said that our choice was a binary one and that I/we must choose the lesser of two evils. Fine, I would reply – but the lesser of two is still evil. There is always a third option and that is none of the above. If Trump wanted my vote he would have to earn it – give me a reason to vote FOR him, other than he is not Hillary. He had not done that. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

TRUMP HAS THE LEAD

Well, this is certainly a switch and rather unexpected by most, I’d say. The post-debate polls have taken shape, and it seems the Trumpster has wrested the lead from Hillary in more than just one.

As I’ve said before – despite having to stay abreast of these events, I find it physically painful to sit through an entire debate between these two. From what I’ve seen through the three debates, nobody has actually achieved victory – not like Romney did in the first 2012 debate or most of the Reagan performances. It was more like a first and second loser. read more

There are no Issues Other than Trump is a Womanizer

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

Lebron James Shouldn’t be Criticizing Anyone

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version. After reading, you’ll know why.

Basketball icon and Hillary supporter Lebron James has waded into the political arena. He recently commented on Trump’s disturbing remarks in 2005, and the fact that Trump said it was “locker room talk.”

What is locker room talk to me? It’s not what that guy said,” the Cleveland Cavaliers forward told reporters. “We don’t disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our locker room. That never comes up.”

“I’ve got a mother-in-law, a wife, a mom and a daughter, and those conversations just don’t go on in our locker room,” James said Tuesday. “What goes on in our locker room is sporting events that happened the night before, about family, about strategies that we may have that night, about a highlight that may have happened, you know, if there was a home run in the bottom of the ninth or there was an alley-oop dunk from a player the night before. That’s what happens in our locker room.”

“But what that guy was saying,” James then added, “I don’t know what that is.”

Having spent years playing various sports – football, wrestling, hockey, lacrosse – as well as military facilities on land and aboard ship – not to mention the gym I currently attend – I can tell you for a fact that unless the Cleveland Cavaliers are sharing a locker room with a local Christian boys group – Lebron is full of crap. I hear things even today in the locker room of my gym, uttered by well-educated doctors, attorneys, engineers, etc. that would make a Marine blush. I have an acquaintance – a neurosurgeon, whose foul mouth would turn Lebron white. read more

The Clintons Caused the 2008 Collapse

Last night, pitching great and Boston Red Sox hero, Kurt Schilling, was on Fox with Neil Cavuto. As he is running to displace current socialist hack Elizabeth “Fauxahontas” Warren in the Senate in Massachusetts, there was very little baseball discussed, beside the fact that Cavuto is a Yankees fan. Anyone familiar understands that the Red Sox and Yankees are one of America’s greatest sports rivalries. The two teams, and their fans, are not fond of one another.

As Schilling is also a Trump supporter, the discussion centered on the presidential race, the debate, and Hillary Clinton to be precise.

Schilling is plain spoken and not afraid to speak his mind. He said, in effect, that Hillary is the gift that keeps on giving – that it is easy to catch her in a lie because that’s pretty much all she does.

The discussion turned to the economy and Schilling reiterated what Trump had said during the debate regarding Hillary having 30 years to fix the economy, but has apparently waited until now to do anything about it.

Both he and Trump are absolutely right to bring this up. The problem is that Trump doesn’t appear to have a grasp on specifically why. And if he does, he declined to share it with 84 million viewers. read more

Podcast – Judge Nixes New Hillary Email Release – Trump Campaign Chair Resigns for Speaking the Truth – Cruz Endorses Trump

A Federal Judge appointed by Barack Obama in 2011 just ruled that some 15,000 new Hillary Clinton emails will not have to be released to the public until well after the November presidential election. How convenient.

A Republican chair for the Trump campaign in Ohio feels the heat when she has the nerve to speak the truth about race strife in today’s America. She paid the price by having to resign her position and apologize for being insensitive.

I discuss my feeling of my man Ted Cruz endorsing The Donald. I’m still not sure how I feel about it but will withhold my opinion and judgment until I him explain himself. Others are a tad more upset with the Texas Senator. read more

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
