You May be a Conservative American if:

You are wealthy, unapologetic and not racked with guilt.

You don’t believe you gained your wealth on the backs of the poor.

You are not wealthy, but want to be and don’t wish to rob or scam anyone to get that way.

You don’t feel guilty about wanting to keep more of what you’ve earned.

You don’t hate or wish to punish the people who have more than you, simply because they have more.

You are not a racist, but the left says you are.

You are not a homophobe, but the left says you are.

You are not a bigot, but the left says you are.

You are not a sexist, but the left says you are.

You are not transphobic, but the left says you are.

You don’t believe that because men should use the men’s room and women should use the lady’s room makes you transphobic. read more

Podcast – New Immigration Guidelines – Harvard Says Gender Can Change Daily

The new immigration guidelines have been announced. No, not for America – for Australia. The island continent/nation has decided it has had enough and has modified its citizenship test and guidelines to stress assimilation. Among other things, they have the nerve to insist that in order to become an Australian citizen, immigrants must demonstrate the ability to speak, write and understand English. Imagine that. The Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnball adds that Australian citizenship should be honored, cherished and a privilege.

Segment two may cause a mental melt-down, as Harvard claims it to be a scientific fact that there are more than two sexes – and that the office of BLGTQ student life insists that gender is so fluid as to change as often as daily. They’ve even published, at school expense, a gender diversity guide that says so. read more

Lessons from the Blind Sheikh

from the Middle East Forum:

One of America’s oldest Islamist enemies, Omar Abdel Rahman, popularly known as the “Blind Sheikh,” died February 18 in a U.S. federal prison after nearly a quarter century behind bars. Though he did incalculable damage to our security during his illustrious career, he also taught us three valuable lessons, even if we’re reluctant to fully apply them.

First, Abdel Rahman showed us how devastating an impact the arrival of just one unvetted Islamic militant can have.

Abdel Rahman was an esteemed scholar of Islamic jurisprudence before becoming spiritual leader of Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya, a violent offshoot of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, during the 1970s. In 1981 he was jailed for issuing a fatwa authorizing the murder of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. Released three years later, Abdel Rahman played a major role recruiting mujahideen networks fighting the Soviet Union in Afghanistan and has often been credited by Osama bin Laden with inspiring al-Qaeda. read more

The Lefts Special Ability to See Racism

I find it fascinating that the only culture not worth preserving is Western culture, and particularly American culture.

No matter how long I lived in – pick a country – say – Mexico, I would never be afforded the title of hyphenated countryman. Regardless of my insistence, I would never be considered American-Mexican, or American Hispanic. No one would come to my aid and insist that my American heritage must be preserved – that it would add to or somehow strengthen Mexican culture. There would be no protests, no marches, no picket signs, no pressing two for English. And those in Mexico would have little patience with me flying the American flag. They would expect me to assimilate, and rightly so.

Yet, as we are well aware, there is no such expectation in America. Quite the opposite. We are the ones who are expected to accept and celebrate everyone else’s culture but our own, allowing them to live as they would like, as permanent house guests. This, we are told, is multiculturalism and is indeed to be celebrated as somehow strengthening our nation.

Because of this we are slowly losing our identity, our culture – what it means to be American.

Recently, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, landed himself in hot water with the liberal elite for stating this very thing. He was interviewed  by the poster-boy of leftist elitism, CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Cuomo immediately began attacking King regarding a tweet by the Republican in support of a comment made by Dutch politician Geert Wilders. read more

My Weekly WND Exclusive – The Clueless Left’s Alignment with Radical Islam

I recently wrote an article on the Day Without a Woman protest, or strike, or whatever it turned out to be.

Unbeknownst to every participant, I’m sure, the women’s protest for equality (or whatever the heck it was) was not organized by concerned citizens or even feminist groups like the National Organization for Women. It was in fact organized largely by extremist Islamists – one a Shariah law advocate and another a known terrorist.

One of the various ways the Muslim Brotherhood has had success infiltrating American society is that they organize and involve themselves in events to co-opt liberal causes, further advancing their radical Islamic ideology. They also promote liberal causes in an effort to piggyback onto any potential legislative measure created to placate whiny leftists. This is part of their overall plan, which has been dubbed Civilization Jihad. read more

Podcast – Trump Wants Merit-based Immigration – Orrin Hatch is a Liar

In his first address to Congress and the Senate, president Trump declared that he wanted America to return to a merit-based legal immigration system. Needless to say the left is not thrilled with this idea, as they no doubt would the current system of allowing lay-about family members would come here expressly to live off the system, and have no demonstrable skills. I discuss this proposal and the reasons why it the only system which makes any sense.

Yes – Utah Senator Orrin Hatch has lied to us about running for reelection at the age of 82. Mark Levin is not happy with the Senator and expresses his displeasure in a Facebook post. I discuss Mark’s post and add a few expressions of my own. read more

Senators Propose Cutting Immigration by Half

from Conservative Review:

USA green cards

If one wants to know what an “America First” approach to reforming our legal immigration system looks like, one need look no further than the bill introduced by Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. (C, 76%) and David Perdue, R-Ga. (C, 75%).

On Tuesday, the duo introduced the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act, which would restructure our immigration system to better address the needs of the American people.

All in all, Sen. Cotton’s office press release states, “The RAISE Act would lower overall immigration to 637,960 in its first year and to 539,958 by its tenth year — a 50 percent reduction from the 1,051,031 immigrants who arrived in 2015.” read more

So Who is Really in Charge of Immigration

It’s obvious and has been demonstrated repeatedly as of late, that the Democrat Party cares less for American citizens than it does for foreign visitors and illegal immigrants.

The Party has also exhibited a willingness to flaunt or outright break the law in doing so.

Being that the Common Constitutionalist is not an actual Constitutional scholar, I cannot say for certain if President Trump’s temporary ban of people from seven foreign nations is or is not Constitutional – anymore than I can say Obama’s was. But I can read…and think.

However, the larger and longer lasting issue is that of illegal immigration, and States and cities refusal to follow federal law. However some would consider this a gray area.

If one were to look to the Constitution, which should always be first consulted, we would see that the word immigration doesn’t appear anywhere. What does is Article I, Section 8, clause 4, which states that, “Congress shall have the Power To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization…” read more

It’s Time to Permanently Limit Immigration…Again

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

The left, moderate republicans, and most everyone else are freaking out over President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban, which is anything but a Muslim ban.

Yesterday, Glenn Beck, on his morning radio program, ran through the facts of what Trump actually signed as an Executive order. Beck added that he (like me) is not a fan of Executive Orders. Executive Orders have the air of a monarchy or autocracy and, in my opinion, upsets the balance of power and undercuts republicanism – our system of government – not the Party.

Beck and his on-air colleague Stu did lament that the speed in which the order went into effect took authorities like the TSA almost by surprise, as these agencies were being informed of the order as Trump was signing it.

However it appears that these agencies did a remarkable job of following the order with little warning – so hats off to them. Never thought I’d say that about the TSA, Customs or any other government department.

Outside JFK, thousands gathered to protest. In the midst of the crowd were several individuals from a group called “UNITE 4 PEOPLE” holding up placards, each with an illuminated letter spelling out “NO BAN.” read more

President Trump – Don’t Give an Inch on Your Immigration Crack Down

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Let them protest all they like. Let all the lefty whack-jobs gather en masse at every major city in the U.S. to protest president Trump’s orders to halt immigration from seven specific countries. Let them whine and cry over the stoppage of the ridiculous refugee relocation program from the Middle East and other majority Muslim nations – refugees who are overwhelming NOT CHRISTIAN.

Let them all continue to protest at a fevered pitch, for the louder and more obnoxious they are the quicker they will peter out. No one can remain as angry as these crowds appear to be forever. It is doubtful the people can keep up this pace for even an entire week. They will eventually, sooner than later, tire of shouting, chanting and lugging around signs and banners. And then as quickly as the events were organized, they will end, and the crowds will disperse on their own.

The trick for the Trump administration, is to hold the line and don’t back down from their positions. Don’t give an inch – don’t compromise.

The left are masters at creating cracks in their opponent’s lines. And they, we and the republicans all know that historically the dems have had great success employing the divide and conquer strategy. It always happens one of two ways, or perhaps a combination of both. read more
