Video Podcast – Enough with NFL Social Justice

by: the Common Constitutionalist

At this point, NFL players, coaches, owners and executives deserve to be bashed by fans – including the President. You brought this on yourselves with your phony virtue signaling and hand-wringing.

America is the greatest country on Earth and this country and all your fans have afforded you the opportunity to play a GAME for a very good living. Now you want to bite off the hands that feed you and call it unity.

Well, we’re not buying what you’re selling. And it’s evident from the ratings and stock prices of the networks which broadcast your games. None of us go to games, or watch football to be preached at by the likes of you. Protest on your own time. When you hit the field, just shut up and play. read more

Podcast – Deportation Sob Stories – Scary Firearms are Banned – Take Down that American Flag

Every week, the left will trot out poor illegal aliens who face deportation by that big meanie Trump. Last week was no different. The radical illegal immigrant advocates regale us with sob stories of how unfair the President is. I touch on a few of the latest tearjerkers.

The U.S. Fourth Circuit is making their own unconstitutional law, by stating that scary “exceptionally lethal weapons of war” are not protected by the Second Amendment – as opposed to weapons which are not lethal – I guess.

A Virginia High School tries to force a student to take his American flag off his truck. read more

Stars and Stripes Forever

Four decades after the last astronauts landed on the moon and planted an American flag in lunar soil, scientists wondered: ‘Does that star spangled banner yet wave?’

Finally new images from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) have given proof in the night, that the flags are, indeed, still there.

All but one of the six flags left by American astronauts remain standing, according to an analysis of the shadows they cast on the surface of the moon.

During each of the six American moon landings, astronauts left American flags behind as symbols of their nation’s scientific and engineering achievement.

The first was the monumental July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 landing — in which Neil Armstrong declared on live television, ‘one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’

The final mission was Apollo 17 on December 14, 1972.

Scientists used new, detailed images from NASA’s lunar camera to determine that the flags were casting shadows that circled them as the moon moved in its normal orbit — proving that they were still standing on their poles.

‘From the LROC images it is now certain that the American flags are still standing and casting shadows at all of the sites, except Apollo 11,’ Mark Robinson, an investigator with the lunar satellite program, wrote on Friday.

‘Astronaut Buzz Aldrin reported that the flag was blown over by the exhaust from the ascent engine during liftoff of Apollo 11, and it looks like he was correct!’

The American missions to the moon remain the only manned flights to touch down on a heavenly body.

Dr Robinson wrote that one of the most common questions he and his team have received since the launch of the lunar orbiter in 2009.

‘Personally I was a bit surprised that the flags survived the harsh ultraviolet light and temperatures of the lunar surface, but they did,’ he wrote.

‘What they look like is another question (badly faded, perhaps?).’

The conditions on the surface of the moon are harsh. Temperatures swing between 250 and -280 degrees Fahrenheit
