Elizabeth Warren Kicked Off Her Presidential Bid by Criticizing Obama

Remember when Barack Hussein Obama could do no wrong? I do, because it wasn’t too long ago. For eight long years we on the right suffered as Obama did whatever he pleased. And during this time there was not a single disparaging word from left.

But on January 21st, 2017, everything changed.

For a period, Obama vanished – went off to one after another vacation. But these weren’t just any old outings. These were luxury vacations with billionaires and beautiful people, in far-away places you or I could not hope to go.

But that’s not the only thing that changed on January 21st – the day after Trump was inaugurated. That date mark the start of a new campaign season.

I know what you’re thinking and probably saying out loud. We just finished. Can’t we get a break already? No – no we can’t. You might also be thinking that the 2018 midterms are still a ways away. Why do they need to begin so early? read more

Whistleblowing by Design

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Well – it looks like it was all by design. Throughout his entire presidency, Obama and his most transparent administration of all time has had it out for whistleblowers.

In March, 2015, the Guardian posted an article stating that, “Since Barack Obama entered the White House in 2009, his government has waged a war against whistleblowers and official leakers. On his watch, there have been eight prosecutions under the 1917 Espionage Act – more than double those under all previous presidents combined.”

However, they also went on to explain that it’s not like Obama prosecuted all leakers. Those “leaks” from high-level officials like Leon Panetta, John Brennan or even New York Times reporter, David Sanger, were all given a pass.

Bottom line – if you were favored by Obama and the leak would make the President look good, no harm would come to you.

But then in January, a week prior to Trump’s inauguration, it seemed everything changed. The Washington Times reported that, “President Barack Obama— with about a week left in his presidency — has all of a sudden shown interest in protecting government whistleblowers and the inspector general community.” read more

Podcast – Atheist Files Suit To End In God We Trust – Has Obama Given Us Donald Trump?

In this episode I discuss the silly atheist Michael Newdow and his latest anti-religion lawsuit attempting to rid America of the scourge of “In God We Trust.” He claims that this “Motto” and others are promoting Monotheism in our nation and he won’t stand for it.

In the second segment I discuss a recent article on the Guardian website that insists Obama is the cause of the rise of Donald Trump – that the American public is so angry at Obama and government they are now flocking to Trump, who he calls the anti-Obama. I also uncover a silver lining to a Trump presidency, as liberals promise to leave America should he be elected. read more

Is Rubio Using a Marketing 101 Strategy?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It has been said it simply wasn’t Marco Rubio’s night on Saturday. It’s been said he stumbled and was tripped up causing him to revert back to a canned and practiced statement about how Obama has known all along what he wanted to do after he was elected. Rubio repeatedly insisted that Obama is not incompetent, he’s a radical. He didn’t say radical – he said Obama knows exactly what he’s doing – the radical is implied.

As has been widely reported, Marco Rubio repeated four times, essentially that same canned talking point during Saturday’s debate, for which he was called out by blowhard Chris Christie – and now the media and pundit class. For this many have taken to calling him Marco Robot and Marco Roboto.

But look at Trump’s slogan: “Make America Great Again.” How many times has he repeated that? By this time, who doesn’t know it? Of course we have no idea of what it really means other than Trump says we’re going to “Make America Great Again.” He did what any good marketing agent would do – keep hammering it until it sticks.

It’s no different than “15 minutes can save you 15%,” or the old and highly successful Miller Lite ad, “Tastes Great – Less Filling.” Does anyone really know if spending 15 minutes on a Geico website will actually save 15%? Of course not and who cares? They don’t. All they care about is that everyone knows the slogan, equates it with Geico and if it’s repeated often enough it becomes some sort of quasi-fact. read more

Obama and Putin: A Tale of Two Presidents

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin have a couple things in common. Both are domestic authoritarians and both believe themselves to be dictators of their respective countries. Beyond that, they are pretty much polar opposites.

Putin, the ex-KGB agent fancies himself a tough guy, a man’s man, spending a great amount of time shirtless and probably in front of a mirror. And being an ex-agent, he is more than likely a tough guy. Obama, as has been demonstrated on many occasions, is a wimp who merely plays at being tough, but only to the extent he can remain unchallenged, which is the mark of a bully.

Domestically Obama appears tough because he has force of the federal government to do his bidding and spineless cowards as his only opposition – those cowards being the republicans. He is free to push them around the schoolyard. But internationally – that’s a different story. At the first sign of trouble he folds. He’s not equipped for the international stage, where his army of government lawyers can’t merely pressure and threaten his enemies into capitulation. Other world leaders have no fear of that, which is why he chooses to lead from behind.

Take for example the latest juxtaposition between he and Putin with their handling of ISIS and Syria in general. Putin, to be sure, is a dirtbag despot, but he does understand war and the use of his military. We certainly should not agree with his ambitions and alliances, but he appears to be getting the job done, as he sees it. He evidently has full comprehension that the job of his military – any military, is to kill people and break things. And he has set out to do just that. read more

Netanyahu’s Communications Director Calls Out Obama

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s common knowledge that Barack Obama is no fan of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the same goes for Bibi’s feeling toward Obama. In fact, in my opinion, they despise each other. Barack hates Bibi because Obama is an Islamic sympathizer, and Bibi hates Obama for the exact same reason.

Of course that’s not the way it is publicly. World leaders, even ones that lead from behind are expected to maintain decorum when they speak of one another. There is no love for one another or even mutual admiration, but a healthy respect is conveyed. That’s publicly.

And I guess that public decorum is supposed to extend down the line to staff members – say to like a communications director, whom you would think would know how to effectively communicate.

But evidently, conservative commentator Ran Baratz, Netanyahu’s newly appointed communications director didn’t get the memo, as some rather ignoble comments have been discovered about our fine Israel-loving president.

His Facebook post, although written in Hebrew is translated as: “I may be a little spicy, unlike להרגליי moderates: Obama’s treatment of Netanyahu’s speech — Looks like a modern anti-Semitism in western liberal. Of course and she comes with a lot of tolerance and understanding of anti-Semitism Islamic; so much tolerance and understanding, until willing to even give them a nuke.” read more

Manifesto, Then and Now

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In 2008, many unsuspecting voters took a cursory look at candidate Barack Obama and saw something new and different. By now a good number of those ignorant citizens have wised up, at least enough to recognize that Barack “Philip Dru” Obama is nothing new. He is just a logical choice of a progressive ideal that began long ago, toward the turn of  last century, whose goal was turning the American Republic into a socialist utopia.

Moses Mordecai Marx Levy, a.k.a. Karl Marx, published his Communist Manifesto in 1848. However, his Manifesto borrowed so heavily from a book written by Clinton Roosevelt, The Science of Government Founded on Natural Law, published in 1841, which Marx was introduced to at a Reading Room of the British Museum, that it was close to plagiarism. Author Emanuel M. Josephson even called Science, “Roosevelt’s Communist Manifesto”. What a coincidence Clinton Roosevelt is related to 2 of the 3 early progressive presidents, Teddy and Franklin. I guess it must run in the family.

Marx’s Communist Manifesto had been commissioned by the Communist League in London. The League, formerly known as the League of the Just (or the League of Just Men), was an offshoot of the Parisian Outlaws League (which evolved from the Jacobin movement).

Both Clinton Roosevelt and Horace Greeley, owner of the New York Tribune, the country’s first national newspaper, provided funds for the Communist League in London to pay for the publication of Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto. Moreover, Greeley put Marx on his newspapers’ payroll. Imagine that, the father of modern-day communism on the payroll of a New York newspaper.

Both Roosevelt’s Science and Marx’s Manifesto agreed on the prerequisites for the implementation of communism. Let’s take a look at these 12 prerequisites for creation of a communist society juxtaposing present-day America. How close are we? You be the judge: read more

Green Energy Hype

Beware of marketing terms such as “clean,” “renewable,” and “sustainable.”  While those words may seem very nice, they have routinely been co-opted and redefined through misleading “Green” messaging campaigns.
GREENHOUSERegarding “clean” energy, let’s agree that no sane person wants dirty, polluted air, land, or water. Nope, not even conservatives.
At the same time, let’s also not confuse carbon dioxide, the plant food that all carbon-based life depends upon, with “air pollution.” The simple fact that the Supreme Court gave EPA permission to regulate it as a polluting “endangerment” under its Clean Air Act does not make this true.
That 2009 ruling decreed that atmospheric concentrations of six greenhouse gases (including CO2 ) “threaten the public health and welfare of current and future generations.” How? Because they pollute global temperatures — warm apparently being considered to be bad, and conversely, frigid obviously being good.

Alinsky – Improvements Made to the Original Design

by: the Common Constitutionalist

There are things throughout history that one can point to and say, “That changed everything”. Things like electricity, indoor plumbing and gunpowder.

Some we can point to as simply upgrades or improvements to the original design. Things like fuel injection, the self-contained rifle cartridge or Hot Shots Part Deux.

Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton did the same with Saul Alinsky’s teaching of community agitating.

Interestingly, as an aside, what is today called, by most everyone, community organizing, Alinsky called agitating, but as the left often does, somewhere along the line, agitator was deemed too negative – too radical, so it magically became organizer. Who could be against organization? read more

Obama is Worse Than Bush

from Breitbart:

“The Billings Gazette,” a Montana newspaper that endorsed President Obama over John McCain in 2008 (but went with Romney in 2012) admitted Friday that they were wrong — Obama is in fact worse than his predecessor, George W. Bush. Apparently, the potential collapse of Iraq (and the disastrous worldwide consequences sure to follow) was the last straw.  read more
