Other than the nonsense happening at our Southern border, the big news over the weekend was that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was refused service and, “She and her family were asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va.”

“Jaike Foley-Schultz, who says he is a waiter at the Red Hen, shared a post on Facebook that said his boss kicked out the press secretary and her party.”

Sanders confirmed that this was the case in a tweet:

Predictably, both the left and right are blowing up over this incident. They shouldn’t, but they are. And both sides are because, to this point, it has been so unusual. If things like this happened everyday, it wouldn’t be news. read more

Texas Is Bizarre – According to the Left

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We all know that the hard-core left loathes the Constitution and the founders who wrote it. After all, virtually everything they think, say and do is unconstitutional.

When you boil it down, the left is for two things: a socialist utopia and a massive central government to manage it.

Leftists like those at ThinkProgress are as hard-core as it gets so I have to laugh when they attempt to use the Constitution to prove a point against the right.

Radical lefty Ian Millhiser at ThinkProgress attempts to do just that, as he posted a piece entitled “A Texas Lawmakers Bizarre Plan to Secede from the Union One Law at a Time.”

Naturally the photo he posted accompanying the article was a Confederate battle flag because people have an immediate visceral hatred for it and what it represents, and of course Texas’s constant use of that particular flag – which was and is… never.

Millhiser’s article explains that “Under an unconstitutional proposal by Texas state representative Dan Flynn (R), just two people in the state of Texas – the state House Speaker and Lieut. Governor – would effectively have the power to suspend any federal law within Texas’s borders, at least temporarily.” read more

Tenthers of the Left

by: the Common Constitutionalist

For years we constitutional conservatives have been railing against federal encroachment on States Rights. And for that we’ve been called every name in the book.

There are 10th Amendment groups all over the country. They are derided by the both the left and right as being out of touch, unrealistic and just plain backwards. Most think these groups are simply comprised of gun-totin hard right hicks who just hate the thought of a federal government or societal progress.

The assemblage of reasonable folks at ThinkProgress calls them Tenthers. I’m sure it is a term of endearment.

Although these Tenthers have gotten a bad rap from pretty much everyone as being completely anti-federal government, they’re not. They, like the rest of us constitutional conservatives, only wish to live and be governed by the real rule of law – the Constitution of the United States.

Unfortunately we are living in a post-constitutional nation, ruled only by federal laws, most of which are unconstitutional.

In 2009 Sam Rohrer, a Pennsylvania republican, who ran unsuccessfully to unseat Senator Bob Casey in 2012 said: “Over time, over the last many generations, the federal government — seeking to grow, as most governments tend to grow — have become increasingly involved in activities that have been reserved to the states, being involved in such things as education, or health care, or for that matter even highways and roads. A great many things the federal government has increasingly passed laws, appropriated tax dollars which are yours and mine, and attempted to force the states to implement laws for which then the federal government essentially has control…”

For his stance on upholding constitutionally mandated States Rights, he was ridiculed. read more
