Podcast – Take a Breath Over Trump’s Shifting Rhetoric – Surge in Illegal Crossings

Can we just calm down and take a breath regarding what Trump is now saying compared to what he claimed on the campaign trail and during the debates with Hillary. Trump will be the only complete unknown elected official in Washington. Despite what “experts” claim, no one has a clue what he will do, so why waste time worrying about it. He should receive, by everyone, a 100% clean slate going in. After he makes some actual decisions on policy, we can either applaud him for keeping his word, or call him out for not.

It’s being reported that there has been a huge surge of illegal alien crossing over the past month or so, with almost 50,000 apprehended in the month of October alone. Could it that the flood of illegals is due to the election Donald Trump? Could be. Perhaps illegals read the New York Times and are convinced that if they make it here, all will be forgiven. read more

ILLEGAL INVASION TRANSFORMS SOUTHERN TOWN

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Albertville is a relatively rural community in Northeast Alabama, about 80 miles north of Birmingham. For well over a century this small town of a little over 20,000 was known for one thing – fire hydrants – specifically Mueller Company fire hydrants.

But things have changed in Albertville. Many would say not for the better. One such resident is 42-year-old Sandra Langlois. She would be considered part of the white working class and is unable to find employment. And the reason? “I can’t find a job because I don’t speak Spanish,” she says. read more

Candidate Trump on Immigration – Which One do We Believe

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Trump says he will follow the immigration laws. Actually – no he didn’t. Trump stated in his town hall interview with Sean Hannity: “We wanna follow the laws. You know we have very strong laws…in this country…and I don’t know if you know but Bush and even Obama sends people back. We can be more aggressive in that, but we want to follow the laws.” Want to and will are not synonymous.

Before I go any further, I wish to state that this is not a bash-Trump article. Readers know I am not a Trump guy, but I am not treating Trump any different than I would any candidate, on either side. I am only attempting to be intellectually honest and consistent.

I was all for Trump’s original immigration policy. I’m thankful he brought it up in the first place. And we constitutionalists are still in favor of his original policy. If you are here illegally, you must go – period. There was no time frame attached to his original claim – nor is there a statute of limitations in the myriad of immigration laws on the books.

If The Donald does what he originally said he would do, which earned him the nomination and the dedicated following he has, he would in fact be adhering to the immigration laws. And he would be the first one since Eisenhower in 1954 to do so. On this I defended Trump about this time last year. read more

Mexican Team Gets Home Field Advantage in America

By: the Common Constitutionalist

Anyone who has ever played a sport, or even attended a game understands how important having a home field advantage is. For example, my New England Patriots are virtually unbeatable at home. In fact most teams fare better at home. The players don’t have to interrupt their normal routines and can sleep in their own beds, etc.

But it is the fans which really seem to make the biggest difference. There is nothing more energizing to a player than to have 10’s of thousands of screaming fans on your side – and against the visitors. Just ask the Seattle Seahawks, who fare virtually as well as do the Patriots in their home stadium. Seattle has even coined the phrase, “The Twelve Man,” to pay homage to their fan-base.

There are still other teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers who have both a large traveling fan-base and also, like the Dallas Cowboys, have thousands of converted fans all over the nation.

There is another team however who enjoys an even larger home away from home fan advantage and that is the Mexican National Soccer (futbol) Team. read more

Podcast – HuffPo Loves Government Mandated Overtime – Congresswoman Suffers Swatting Hoax – Zika is Spreading in America

A writer at the Huffington Post is hailing Obama’s latest control issue – mandatory government decreed overtime pay for the private sector. He says it will likely benefit 12 million American families. I disagree.

I speak in segment two of a computer generating swatting hoax perpetrated on a Massachusetts Congresswoman in retaliation for a bill she introduced to prevent online harassment.

The Zika Virus has hit America, but don’t worry – it has nothing at all to do with the huge influx of immigrants streaming across our border. The CDC assures of that. Coincidently, I disagree with this also. read more

One Way for an Illegal Alien to Come Out of the Shadows

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We’ve all heard the identity theft commercials from companies like LifeLock. When you pull up their site, you are treated to the following: “1 in 4 People Have Experienced Identity Theft.”

And they ain’t just whistling Dixie. Several years ago, I too was one of the unfortunate 1 in 4 Identity theft victims. I guess, I should be more specific. Thankfully my identity wasn’t stolen, but one of my bank accounts was hacked and virtually cleaned out in short order. I felt very angry and violated. I still don’t how it occurred, but thank heavens it hasn’t happened again.

So I feel for anyone else who has experienced it. But that was really nothing compared to a true identity theft. Identity theft is as the name describes, where someone can literally become you, for all intents and purposes. And it’s becoming much more common, which is why companies like LifeLock are in demand.

In cases of true identity theft , it can take years, even decades to clear your name completely and in some cases it never happens.

One such hard-case is that of a clean cut, model American citizen from Grand Prairie Texas, Marcus Calvillo who was in his early 20s when his problems began. He is now 46. read more

A Poorly Designed Fence Certainly Can’t Keep Them Out

By: the Common Constitutionalist

You may recall almost exactly three years ago, four politicians, two republicans and two democrats, departed Washington D.C. and headed to Arizona. The four ventured to the Southwest to tour the Mexico/Arizona border.

As Senators John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Jeff Flake and Michael Bennett walked a section of the 18 foot high fence, they witnessed something rather astonishing (at least to them).

No one would have believed it except that Senator McCain tweeted, “Just witnessed a woman successfully climb an 18 ft bollard fence a few yards from us in #Nogales.”

He added: “Border Patrol successfully apprehended her, but incident is reminder that threats to our border security are real.” You don’t say John. Maybe she was just coming over to do a job that an American won’t. Now, who once said that? Oh, that’s right – it was you Johnny.

Still, you’d like to think an incident like that would have had enough of an effect on even the most hardcore democrat to at least cause them to question their pro-illegal stance. But no – not even this harsh reality could convince them we have a “border security” problem. read more

Podcast – Marco Rubio Mega Flip Flop – Mike Huckabee Campaign On Life Support

Marco Rubio is not who he seems. A mere five years ago he was a self-proclaim anti-amnesty, anti-illegal immigration warrior. He said so in a 2010 interview and you’ll hear it for yourself, straight from Rubio’s mouth. So what happen to Marco?

I also discuss poor Mike Huckabee, whose presidential campaign has all but taken its last breath. But who will Huckleberry support? Listen and find out. read more

Four American Presidents Conducted Deportations

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Trump is a blowhard. Let’s just admit it. He’s a loud mouth. But that doesn’t mean one can’t still be a Trump supporter. Frankly, if he’s right on the issues, who cares if he’s a blowhard.

Well, he’s not right on all issues. So why is he still so popular? Why does he remain at the top of the heap despite bashing everyone but his mother? It’s uncivilized they say. Yet none of that appears to matter due to two little words: Illegal Immigration. That’s it.

Although I’m not a Trumpster, I was glad someone finally brought up president Eisenhower and “Operation Wetback,” during the last debate. We “republicans” are supposed to be up on the issues, but I’ll wager 90% in the audience or viewing on TV didn’t know about Eisenhower’s very successful deportation program.

Well, Bill O’Reilly, on behalf of his “folks,” did not take too kindly to Trump invoking the name of Ike. Business Insider writes that the “Eisenhower program has a dark history – including its name, ‘Operation Wetback,’ a derogatory slur. Of course they neglect to mention that in 1950s parlance, the term “wetback” was more factual than merely derogatory, nor did they care a wit about politically correct speech.

And according to CNN, the 1950s-era transfer process resulted in a number of Mexican migrants dying along the way.” They are attempting to make us believe this deportation was the Mexican Trail-of-Tears? read more

Not a Closet Trump Supporter

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It seems lately I’ve spent an awful lot of time defending the Trumpster, Donald Trump. And frankly, I’ve gotten some feedback that I’m just a closet Trump supporter.

Well, I am, but only on one, maybe two issues. There is his position on illegal immigration, as well as his stance on the military, which is good, as he proclaims that were going to rebuild it – make it powerful again. He also claims he will take care of veterans and that’s great news, depending on how he intends to do it. The rest of his platform, if you can call it that, seems to me to be a lot of ethereal nonsense.

What he never says is how or even if he plans to shrink the government. Which departments does he want to shrink – which does he want to get rid of? He doesn’t have town hall type gatherings, so no one can question him about it. Now this may be because he draws such huge crowds, or it may be by design.

Rush Limbaugh had a segment on his show yesterday, where he spoke that the Republican “brain trust” is warning voters that Trump is just an empty suit. Like Obama in 2008, he has simply mesmerized voters. Rush describes the Republicans as warning us that “Donald J Trump has cast a spell over otherwise well-intentioned and good people who are so fed up and so angry and so marginalized and feel so left out that they are willing to support what may end up destroying the country just to get even with what happened to them eight years ago.”

Rush is indeed right about the Republicans warning us, but the problem is, that none of the same wizards-of-smart warned us about Obama. They didn’t care in 2008, because they already had their establishment guy in John McCain, and that’s the only reason they are warning us now. Their establishment darling, Bush, is getting trounced. read more
