Podcast – The Electoral College – They Brought it Up – Not Us

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Okay – here we go again with the Electoral College. Why do we have to keep talking about the antiquated Electoral College?

But we on the right didn’t bring it up. The democrats continue to. I could be discussing other stuff, and really, who cares about the Electoral College. It’s dry and boring and does it really matter anyway?

Well, we better care and care a lot, because if the left wins the propaganda war and eventually somehow amends the Constitution or something, this country is finished. That’s not hyperbole – it’s cold hard fact.

If you want the Founders explanation of why it’s needed, read Federalist Paper, number 68, written by Alexander Hamilton.

I’m just doing it in modern day bad English.

So as long as the left keeps trying to ram pure democracy, mob rule, down our throats, we have to continue to at least try to educate those who might listen to the logic and beauty of our election system. read more

Should the government – local, State or federal, have the power to force anyone to be vaccinated against highly infectious diseases? Good question.

There has been a recent outbreak of the measles in New York. Local affiliate WABC reports that just since October, 2018, there have been 214 confirmed cases in Brooklyn and Queens and another 153 in Rockland County.

And because of this, Rockland County has declared a State of Emergency. Rockland County Executive Ed Day announced that non-vaccinated minors are now barred from public places.

AS of Thursday, March 28, 2019, “anyone who is under 18 years of age and is not vaccinated against the measles is prohibited from public places until the declaration expires in 30 days or until they receive the MMR vaccination.”

MMR stands for the combination vaccine for Measles, Mumps and Rubella (German Measles). read more

If You Don’t Support the Leftist Agenda – People Will Die

Yes, this video is almost two years old, but it’s as relevant today as it was then. And we still have the same cast of characters and the same silly issues the left continues to push. And with the 2020 presidential election heating up, you know the rhetoric will just become more hyperbolic as each candidate tries to push the envelope further to the radical left. As Rush Limbaugh says, it’s demonstrating absurdity by being absurd.

Enjoy Remy’s “People Will Die!” read more

Get Ready For Marvel’s New Super-Activism

It’s like they just can’t help themselves. These self-important stars and starlets can’t help but share their new-found social justice warrior status with the non-enlightened masses. You know – the one’s who buy the tickets, So as the saying goes – just shut up and act. We go to the movies to be entertained – not to be lectured to. But evidently, all that is changing.

The Woke Superhero Trend May Just Begin As Marvel Head Kevin Feige Approves Of Actor-Ism

Get ready, the comic book origin stories may become more lecturing than entertaining.

As Bonchie wrote yesterday, Chris Evans is dispirited when it comes to Hall Of Fame quarterback Tom Brady. The GOAT thrower has been a supporter of President Trump since his campaign days, with a MAGA hat in his locker perplexing sports writers. The actor Evans — a very outspoken and occasionally vulgar opponent of trump — mentioned that he may have to “cut ties” if Brady is still a supporter of the President. read more
