Hands Up – Don’t Sue!

by: the Common Constitutionalist

This is how the left works when they don’t get what they want. First they uncover, or magically discover, a failing at the individual, local or state level. Then after publically announcing the failure, they suggest that the failure should be changed. They advertise compliance with their “suggestions” as being voluntary. But compliance is only voluntary if the party or parties follow through to the government’s content. If those being “suggested” to comply or change their behavior are slow in doing so, the federal authority will shift from suggestion-mode to poke and prod-mode.

But what happens if the local or state authority decides instead to give the feds the one-finger solute instead of entertaining change?

If this were a constitutionally adherent federal government, they would say that maybe we don’t like it but it is the individual state or community’s right to govern themselves with minimum interference at the federal level.

But of course that’s a silly and antiquated notion. We all know that states and localities can’t govern themselves. They don’t have thousands of Harvard educated governmental experts to guide them. They don’t really know what they want. No, only the federal government experts know what’s good for them and it’s not the fault of our federal government if local yokels can’t understand this. In other words – the feds gotta do what the feds gotta do to save us from ourselves. read more

Black Boy Shot – No Political Gain

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So a black child was fatally shot. His grieving mother tearfully described her son: My baby, he was a good kid. He’s a mama’s boy. He stayed up under me. He called me every day. I’m at work, ‘Mama, I love you. Mama, can I have this. Mama, can I have that’. My boy, he was just an angel. All he did was joke and laugh and play.”

The victim’s father says, “I love my city, but the city took something from me that I love even more. And that was my son. That was my little guy right there.”

I know you’re thinking – little guy?! The kid was a giant. Michael Brown was like 6’4″ and 300 pounds. We know the media and the race pimps promote him as a “young child”, to further garner sympathy, but for the father to say “little guy” is a bit much.

But I can understand your confusion. See, you think I’m writing about the Ferguson shooting, where white cop kills black boy. No – that’s not it.

You see, while the country was still riveted on the shooting of the “Gentle Giant”, there was another shooting – this one of an actual little black child in… where else… Chicago. read more

The Tawana Brown Case

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Through the din of rabid protesters, incited by radical outsiders such as northern communists and Black Panthers from Oakland shouting, “Who do we want?” Crowd: “Darren Wilson”! Panthers: “How do we want him?” Crowd: “Dead!”; some rather disturbing accounts are surfacing. Disturbing if you’re a defender of the “Gentle Giant” Michael Brown.

And as usual “Megaphone Al” Sharpton is in the middle of it all. Honestly – this guy can’t catch a break.

He was front and center in the great Tawana Brawley lie of 1987, where the young woman accused several white men of kidnap and rape, only to be proven completely false.

The Duke Lacrosse case of 2006 – same deal – black woman – white guys – Al Sharpton – complete lie.

Now this incident in Ferguson, and Al is stirring it up again. Seeing the facts, or at least wildly different accounts of the shooting, I think I would “short sell” old Al Sharpton.

From the accounts that are beginning to surface, it may be shaping up to be another one in the loss column for Al.

Now obviously the “Gentle Giant” didn’t deserve to die over the petty theft of some cigars, but he may have for bum rushing officer Wilson, if these new accounts turn out to be true.

Word of advice for anyone contemplating rushing an officer with a drawn and trained weapon – don’t. It will probably not end well for you, nor should it. read more
