Profiles in Treason – John Kerry

Guest post by John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
for the Common Constitutionalist

Once again, losing presidential candidate, failed Secretary of State and the main proponent of the disastrous Iran Deal is attempting to make himself relevant. John Kerry, a charter member of the Deep State under Obama, continues to operate as if the electorate of this country did not elect Donald Trump as the President.

Delusional in every aspect, Kerry feels he is still Secretary of State and is conducting shadowy, illegal foreign policy that he can neither impose. Kerry, in concert with the “Death to America” Iranian mullahs, Kerry has once again turned his back on the American people and American policy, promising the American hating, PLO leading Mahmoud Abbas everything he wants, and going so far as denigrating our President as an eight-year-old child.

Abbas declared to the PLO central Council a few days ago that the Oslo Peace accords were dead. He has insulted our country and our President, called for suspending recognition of Israel, rejecting any role for American in the peace talks.

Kerry, throughout his military and public service career, has never respected our country or the American people. The latest confrontation started when the President moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. But as reported in the Jerusalem Post, Kerry has maintained contact with Abbas and other PLO officials.

Kerry met with Mahmoud Abbas and Hussien Agha in London. He also visited with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss plans to preserve the Iran nuclear deal. There is also information that Kerry is meeting with European leaders such as German leader Frank-Walter Steinmeier, EU official Federica Mogherini andFrench President Emmanuel Macron – pleading with these leaders to defy the sanctions that have been imposed on Iran. read more

Beer was one of the very first drinks humans ever produced – and it may be much older than we previously thought. The brew is generally thought to be about 7,000 years old, but now archaeologists have found clues that could date beer-making to almost twice that age, meaning it predates agriculture and represents the oldest record of man-made alcohol. read more

Government Still Spending Like Drunken Sailors

My apologies to drunken sailors!

No, Tax Cuts Are Not Driving Deficits — It’s The Spending, Stupid

Are President Trump’s massive tax cuts what’s driving federal deficits upward. Everyone says so. But, it’s not true. It’s just a way for lawmakers to distract the public while they crank up the spending machine. Just like the Senate did this week.

Earlier this week, Trump’s top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, gave a talk at the Economic Club of New York in which he said that tax cuts aren’t to blame for deficits.

“People are quick to blame deficits on tax cuts, but I don’t buy that,” he said. “The gap is principally spending too much.” read more

Urwerk’s New Watch Design

Urwerk can always be counted on to surprise, and its latest UR111C wristwatch is absolutely true to form. Designed by co-founders Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei, the self-winding UR111C does pretty well everything it can to subvert the traditional wristwatch form, including an analog/digital readout that sits to the side of the case rather than on the face. read more

If I were a Cynic, I Might not Believe the Kavanaugh Accuser

I can’t believe I’m once again writing about this nonsense regarding judge Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blazey-Ford. But the situation has become so convoluted and so chaotic that it’s taken the air out of most everything else political.

I’m trying not to become cynical, but the more we learn, or don’t learn, the more suspicious this and she becomes.

Let me say that I have no idea what happened, or didn’t. And the fact is, unless someone comes forward and confesses, it can never be determined that the incident, as she described, happened at all, much less that Kavanaugh was the attacker.

The only thing I am sure of is that this is the chaos the democrats hoped for and thrive on.

I’ve listened to many women call in to various programs over the past few days, describing, in vivid detail, what had happened to them many decades earlier. There is a common thread which runs through all these assault victims’ stories. They remember every detail – the who, the when, the what, the how, the where – everything. read more

Weapon Wednesday – Are Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems a Good Idea?

As the power of artificial intelligence grows, the likelihood of a future war filled with killer robots grows as well. Proponents suggest that lethal autonomous weapon systems (LAWs) might cause less “collateral damage,” while critics warn that giving machines the power of life and death would be a terrible mistake.

Last month’s UN meeting on ‘killer robots’ in Geneva ended with victory for the machines, as a small number of countries blocked progress towards an international ban. Some opponents of such a ban, like Russia and Israel, were to be expected since both nations already have advanced military AI programs. But surprisingly, the U.S. also agreed with them. read more

Baseless Allegations are Nothing New for the Left

The circus side show that the democrats were hoping for during the Senate Kavanaugh hearings has come to fruition.

And they owe it all to a California psychology professor, Christine Blasey (pronounced BLAH-zee) Ford, who, by most accounts just happens also to be liberal activist. Okay, maybe that’s not entirely accurate – yet. But she has attended liberal anti-Trump events and is a California college professor.

Am I therefore alleging that she made up the entire story of being attacked at a high school party when she was 15 and has fingered supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as the attacker?

No – I’m not alleging such a thing. Nor can anyone else who wasn’t present in the room at the party. In other words, it’s a wholly unprovable incident.

But do you see what I did there? I implied that maybe she did just make it up because of her background as a California college professor and that she attended liberal events. And we know that all California college professors are radical leftists – right? read more
