WND Exclusive – After Montana, will Dems Rethink Early Voting?

Democrats have always been the party of early voting. That’s fitting, considering early voting is a joke, just like the Democratic Party. But now, thanks to the result in the recent Montana congressional race, some on the left may be rethinking the whole early-voting process.

Voting is something most Americans take for granted, if we think about it at all. But to citizens of many countries around the globe, it is a high honor and privilege. Recall the celebrations and elation of the people of Iraq who triumphantly waved their purple ink-stained fingers in the air. It was a sign of their first ever opportunity to vote in a free election, where no one was guaranteed 99 percent of the vote. (The other 1 percent was never heard from again.) read more

Can We Keep Our Eyes on the Prize

Update: I neglected to mention another option to avoiding doing the hard things like a full repeal of ObamaCare. A weak-kneed roll-out of ObamaCare-lite. Although there hasn’t been time yet to dissect the new proposal, you can bet it doesn’t resemble anything they have been promising us. I can’t wait to hear the tough-talking sales pitch of the watered down bill.

What has everyone in politics, every cable news outlet, every talk radio program been discussing since Friday? Well, it’s not ObamaCare, cutting taxes, or really any of Trump’s big agenda items. Of course, it’s wiretapping, meetings with Russians and tweeting.

For now four solid days we have been pummeled with wiretapping scandal stories. If it’s not specifically about wiretapping, it’s about Jeff Sessions or others meeting, or not meeting with the Ruskies. Oh, and also the salaciously commented on photo of Kelly Ann Conway perched on the couch in the Oval Office.

That’s four days the administration and those on Capital Hill have not been thinking of or acting on the campaign promises that were made to us – a full repeal of ObamaCare – cutting taxes and confirming the next supreme Court justice, etc., etc.

This one story has sucked all the oxygen out of the room. On Monday, Rush Limbaugh spent virtually his entire show – three full hours harping on the feud between Trump and the democrats and zero time on anything else. I don’t listen to Hannity anymore, but I’ll bet he did the same. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive – Democrats: The Wackier They Get the More We Win

Think about just how bad your message must be if you still can’t win elections, even with virtually everything stacked in your favor.

The Democrats have had the television and print media in their pockets for decades. Hollywood has been firmly behind them – even producing programming wholly designed to promote the left’s candidate, as in the TV show “Madam Secretary.” Save for a few instances, they’ve had leftist judges and courts consistently rule in their favor regarding election law.

They’ve been able to divide the nation into victimized groups, by way of race, creed and gender – informing each, or rather lying to them, that they cannot succeed without Democratic help. read more

The left will never be satisfied with their candidate

It’s funny (not “ha ha” funny) that no matter how many years go by and how long the Democrats have run things in this country, the left is still not satisfied.

Jim Garrison, founder of Ubiquity University, like so many leftists, told us in 2013, five years into Obama’s presidency, that he believes “we are headed into a catastrophic system failure because of the collective refusal of our governments to deal adequately with climate change. I believe at the same time there is a huge, growing number of people who want fundamental change.” read more

Everything is Rigged – Except this Election

by: the Common Constitutionalist

According to Democrats, the only thing in life which isn’t rigged is this election.

As long as Hillary Clinton is said by the pollsters to be in the lead and likely to win, the “system” is just fine – but only the election system.

It can’t be rigged if the democrats win. A democrat being in power is the natural order of things. I think it may actually be a part of Darwin’s evolutionary theory. First the protozoa, then the fish, then the ape, then the Neanderthal Republican, and finally, the enlightened progressive Democrat. That’s how it goes – right?

It is amusing that the same people and party, who claim that everything in America is somehow rigged, think it ridiculous when the Republican nominee claims that of this election – and that Republican voters are the ones this time being “disenfranchised.”

In August of this year the Washington Post claimed  that Exxon Mobil is “rigging the system” against green energy. Of course they are. After all, they are the poster-corporation of evil “big oil.” “As recently as last year, it continued to fund organizations that play down the risks of carbon pollution,” writes the Post.

So “rigged” is the system that the AGs of the communist states of New York and Massachusetts, “are investigating whether ExxonMobil violated state laws by knowingly misleading their residents and shareholders about climate change.”

Amtrak Derailment Is Just Another Good Crisis

by: the Common Constitutionalist

An Amtrak train derails killing seven so far and injuring hundreds more. Frankly it’s a miracle more weren’t killed. Some are in critical condition and may still die from their injuries, but still, it’s a minor miracle.

Evidently the train was traveling in excess of 100 mph. “The speed limit is 70 mph just before the curve and 50 mph along the curve itself,” the Federal Railroad Administration said. Amtrak inspected the stretch of track on Tuesday, just hours before the accident, and found no defects.

Although there have been track and equipment failures in the past – some might call these things “infrastructure” – it’s pretty rare. Actually, train accidents are pretty rare, regardless of the cause. Including this one, there have been six train accidents thus far in 2015, and exactly none had anything to do with equipment or “infrastructure.”

In January a prison bus was struck by a train in Texas. There were two in February: a Metro North train hit a car and a derailment in California caused by hitting a vehicle on the tracks. There were two in March: an Amtrak train hit a tractor-trailer in North Carolina and a Los Angeles Expo-line train collided with two cars. Then of course there is this latest horrific derailment that appears so far to be driver error.

Five out of the six train accidents this year were caused by idiots in vehicles parked across the tracks and the other at least so far appears to be the fault of the driver. read more

Democrats Are Spastic over Netanyahu Speech

By: the Common Constitutionalist

The Democrats are in a tizzy over the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, coming to speak before Congress on March 3rd.

Yesterday, the Washington Post Plum line’s “Morning Plum” headline read “Democrats flummoxed by Netanyahu speech.”Benjamin Netanyahu, Joe Biden, John Boehner

The first thing Greg Sargent writes is “A CNN poll released this week found that 63 percent of Americans think House GOP leaders were wrong to invite Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress without notifying President Obama. Eighty one percent of Democratic respondents agree.”

Okay, before we go any further, let’s take a look at this CNN poll and see how it breaks down. In order to get an accurate depiction of whether the pollster is being fair and impartial or the opposite, one has to first look at the methodology of the poll. By looking at who they polled you can determine whether there’s an obvious bias. Naturally, I wouldn’t expect that of CNN.

CNN states that it polled 1027 adults. Right off the bat, if you understand how to read a poll, this is a problem, and the pollsters understand full well what they are doing. read more

For the 2016 Election – Time to Revisit the 10 Cannots

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The 2016 presidential election season has begun and already the left is attacking the Republicans.

walker dunceThey have already begun to tear down our more conservative presidential candidates. Popular Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who has been atop most polls recently, is a perfect example, with the lefts lame attempt to cast him as a dunce due to not completing college. Evidently that has really hindered him as the chief executive of a large state.

Simultaneously, leftist insiders are feeding the press with what they believe to be winning issues for the Democrats. One such issue is income inequality, which we’ve already heard Obama pushing.

Last week the LA Times wrote a piece entitled “Income inequality emerges as a key issue in 2016 presidential campaign.” Has it really? Of course it has, because the left feels it’s a winning issue.

The Times writes that voters have noticed the income gap and cites a Gallup poll released the week prior showing “two thirds of Americans said they were dissatisfied with the way income and wealth are distributed in the U.S.” read more

The Democrats and the Price of Oil

By: the Common Constitutionalist

We’ve all been pleasantly surprised by the drop in gas prices lately. It’s now in the $2.90/gallon range and that’s a good thing.

CBS News reported on a recent Morgan Stanley analysis. “Morgan Stanley predicted that sustained low gas prices could mean households could have as much as $40 billion extra to spend this quarter.” Merry Christmas!

This report was issued in October, before the midterm election, yet never touted by a single democrat. Why?

Well, industry experts claim that increased oil production, mainly domestic, coupled with waning demand due a sluggish world economy has created a supply glut driving prices down, which is great for American voters’ wallets.

Now, does everyone remember Tom Steyer, the enviroweenie billionaire? His super PAC was the single largest campaign donor this election cycle, and every cent went to the democrats. read more

Of Ann & Rand

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

Ann Coulter was recently on the Sean Hannity television program.

 

The interview started friendly but quickly turned rather contentious. Coulter told Sean, “If we don’t elect Republicans; I don’t care which Republicans, we will not repeal Obamacare.”

 

So Ann, are you saying if we elect a Senate full of John McCains, Mitch McConnells and Lindsey Grahams, we will repeal Obamacare? Really?

 

I’ll answer that. Not a chance! That’s the answer.

 

She went on to say that we shouldn’t be fighting against Republicans. And then said, actually shouted, that the Republicans, if they gain a majority will balance the budget and do all these conservative things.

 

Where’s the proof of that? There is none. As a matter of fact, there is the exact opposite, solid proof that they won’t. read more
