My WND Exclusive – For Teachers, Ideology Trumps Intelligence

Some of the wackiest places on the planet today are American schools. Literally every day of the year I have the opportunity to write about some liberal foolishness happening on a college campus or public secondary school, should I choose. There are several excellent websites devoted to nothing but leftism in education, and they are never wanting for fresh material.

But this is to be expected in the today’s world of academia. Colleges and universities pump out radical leftist activists and send them out to pose as teachers and administrators. They are the ones who teach little Johnny and Janey that students should expect to spend their formative years, and beyond, safe from conflict and controversy – and that anyone who disrupts the physical and mental safety of the delicate flowers can and should be dealt with harshly. read more

Podcast – VP Pence Attends Last Musical – Diversity of Discipline – We Don’t Need No Stinking Jobs

VP elect Mike Pence had the nerve to enter the lion’s den of liberalism and attend the smash Broadway hit, and cocktail set musical, Hamilton. Anyone who is anyone must see and be seen attending Hamilton. However, if one is a republican who just vanquished the democrat in a recent election, the lesson is to not attend a Manhattan function of any kind, lest you get booed and jeered by the tolerant liberals who espouse diversity – just not of thought.

School districts throughout the United States discipline their teachers and students in a variety of ways. One way is to do virtually nothing when two students perform a skit entitled “The Assassination of Donald Trump,” in the middle of a classroom. Another way is to fire a teacher for her use of racial slurs.

Good employees are difficult to find. Lazy ones are evidently much easier, as I found during a recent trip to a local Walmart. read more

Podcast – A Rant Aimed at a Liberal Columnist and Gun Shop Owner

In this episode I go off on the opinion piece posted at the New York Daily News by liberal wimp, Gersh Kuntzman and his ridiculous fear of an inanimate object – the AR-15 long rifle. Notice I didn’t describe it as an Assault Weapon, because technically, there is no such thing. I also take issue (that’s putting mildly) with the Gun Shop/Range owner, Frank Stelmach, for his own inane views on both the rifle and our God-given rights to own such a thing.

I get a bit technical as I discuss various home-defense weapons and the difference between a civilian AR-15 and its military counterpart, as well as my preference for home-defense weapons.

America needs to become educated about these things so we don’t keep falling for the same tired line of gun-grabbing crap the left is advancing. read more

The Liberal “States of the World”

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Recently Mark Levin suggested, as has Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and even little old me, to allow the liberals of this country to pick the states of their choosing and form their own leftist nation – The Liberal States of the World”.

Mark suggested that they pick 10 states, all move there, and have a ball. They can even pick the nicest states – the coastal ones, although with the sure onset of global warming, maybe not. We wouldn’t want all those lefties to be washed out to sea.

So let’s just say they will occupy both coasts and we conservatives will move into the crappy flyover states. We’ll even throw in Washington DC as a bonus.

They would now be free to do anything they want – enact any legislation – raise any tax – mandate any regulation and pack any court, with no unreasonable conservatives to stop them with their religious dogma.

They may rewrite the Constitution, or better yet, scrap the whole thing and replace it with FDR’s Second Bill of Rights.

If you’re unfamiliar with them or need a review, here are a few of the real standouts:

The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation.

The right of every family to a decent home.

The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health.

The right to adequate protection from economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.

The right to a good education.

Wow – where do I sign? That sounds great and completely reasonable and workable. It sounds like manna from heaven, except there is no heaven – so manna from Mother Earth. read more

What Doesn’t Offend Liberals?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

We have a lot of problems in America; some very heady problems. Every facet of our lives is being negatively affected. Yes, we conservatives do have plenty to worry about, plenty of which to complain.

 

High unemployment, Common Core, renewed calls for jihad, the never ending war on energy, illegal immigration, Obamacare and the fact that the debt has jumped a third of $1 trillion in one day, post debt ceiling.

 

That’s a lot to complain about!

 

What about liberals? What has them in an uproar? Any of the above? Nope. It’s the NFL team, the Washington Redskins. Yes, with all the countries problems, this football team’s name is front and center in the liberal press.

 

So ridiculous is the hyperbole that the New York daily news released a political cartoon with three symbols side-by-side. A Nazi swastika, a Confederate flag and the Washington Redskins emblem, with the caption “Archaic Symbols of Pride and Heritage”.

 NaziSkins

 

Really? The symbol of a football team equates to the Nazis? That’s as absurd as say, calling conservatives arsonists or jihadists and that would never happen. Oh wait… we were called just that and more about a week ago.

 

So far, the Redskins owner, Daniel Snyder has not succumbed to the pressure. I hope he stays the course and doesn’t give in. But as liberal nannies do, they will continue to apply more and more pressure, ramping up the hysteria. This is what they do! It is akin to a spoiled child having a tantrum if he doesn’t get his way. He will become louder and more obnoxious until his idiot parents give in, which he knows they will do eventually.

 

I will give liberals credit for their never give up attitude. They push and push until the rest of us say, okay, it’s just not worth it and give in to their demands.

 

Today’s America has become the polar opposite of the saying “sticks and stones… but names will never hurt me”. Evidently, names like Redskins and symbols of an Indian head are as harmful as killing 6 million people. Sounds reasonable.

 

But we’ve learned long ago that racism is whatever the left says it is and the word “Redskins” is degrading to American Indians.

 

As an aside just as we should not call blacks, African-Americans, we should not call American Indians, Native Americans for technically, I and most reading this are native Americans. If the word Indian is so bad, why then do Indian nations call themselves Indian nations?

 

If the Redskins are pressured to change their name; who’s next? Does the state of Oklahoma have to change its name? After all, Oklahoma is Choctaw for “Red People”.

 

But as the pressure mounts more and more are bowing to it. The Richmond Free Press has dropped the Redskins name from its pages. Several Washington DC schools are considering banning Redskins jerseys in class.

 

And now, with all the problems facing Congress, a liberal hack Congresswoman, Donna Edwards has proposed a bill to strip the team of its trademark protection.

 

It’s sheer madness! When will it end? Well, it won’t if we continue to relent.

 

In the grand scheme of things, this is a rather minor point, in lieu of all the problems in this country, but it is still important. But we as conservatives need a victory over political correctness, however small.

 

I’m not a fan of or particularly like the Washington Redskins but I’m going to call Mr. Snyder’s office and voice my support. I suggest you do the same. 301-276-6060 or 703-726-7000.

 

One of these days, someone like Mr. Snyder will stand and say, “Do what you will… I will never relent!”

 

And that may be the watershed moment this country is in dire need of to further spark a conservative revolution.

FBI Most Wanted List

There has been a lot in the news the last two days about Joanne Deborah Chesimard who is the first woman ever placed on the “FBI Most Wanted Terrorists” list. Joanne’s connections with the Weather Underground and Obama mentor Bill Ayers have been much publicized. Rather than beat that story into the ground I thought I would take a moment to make a point that fails to be made often enough.

With all the constant rhetoric about the dangers of the American Patriot and right-wing-Christian terrorists, the facts still remain. The current list of “FBI Most Wanted Terrorists” contains 32 people. 30 of those people are Muslims and two are left-wing liberals. In addition to Chesimard, Daniel Andreas San Diego is the other non-Muslim on the list.

Who is San Diego? He is an animal rights activist who is accused of involvement in two San Francisco bombings.

Real Choice and the Left

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The definition of the prefix pro-: indicating favor for party, system, idea, etc.

The definition of choice: the act of selection, the right, power, or opportunity to choose; option.some choice

The left is said to be all about Pro-Choice. Unfortunately the choice must always agree with their set of beliefs. Choice to the left is also quite myopic. The only choice for the left, is in fact, no choice at all.

I’m speaking of course, of the only pro-choice stance that liberals insist upon, and of course, it is not a choice. The correct terms are, or should be, pro-life and pro-abortion and for the left, the choice must always be abortion.

Let’s take a look at just how pro-choice the left is regarding a couple other hot topics.

The right to work issue has been news for quite a while, but has bolted to the front page with the recent Michigan vote. Unions came out in droves and were bused in by the thousands to rally unsuccessfully against “Right to Work”.

Right-to-Work-Union-Choice-or-NotIs “Right to Work” not just pro-choice? One may “choose” in favor of joining a union, or “choose” not to join. That seems pretty pro-choice to me.

What about the issue of school choice? Liberals are all about the children, or so they say. However, when the matter of parents choosing which school they may send their children to, choice is not an option. Sure the left will argue that there is only so much money to go around and school choice would just further drain funding, but of course that’s a bogus argument that can easily be countered with a voucher system or tax credits. Parents receive their standard per-student funding via a voucher and are then free to “choose” the school of their “choice”. That’s pro-choice, is it not?

Now that I think of it, I guess the left is pro-choice regarding schools. They just happened to choose the teachers unions over the children, 100% of the time.

There are any number of things I would regard myself as being pro-choice, if I had the choice. Here are just a few.

  • I would choose not to fund PBS (kudos to Mitt)
  • I would choose to close the border
  • I would choose to bring our troops homegot-out-free-obamacare-waiver
  • I would choose to allow Israel to defend itself by any means necessary
  • I would choose to drill for oil and gas everywhere there might be some
  • And coming soon, I would choose to opt out of Obamacare, where soon enough, I will not be able to “choose” my own doctor nor make my own health care decisions.

So you see, for the left, being pro-choice isn’t really about choice. It’s just repackaging and marketing. It is a lot more palatable to say one is pro-choice than pro-abortion. It’s like being gay instead of the proper term, homosexual, just as blacks are now all African-Americans, even though most of them are no more African than I am European.

Progressives are good at this sleight-of-hand. If some word, phrase, or thought falls out of favor or develops a neblack-vs-african-americangative connotation, they simply change the name and voilà, it’s magically acceptable and supposed to be somehow, different. The name progressive actually fell out of favor long ago and was changed to liberal, and now we’re back to progressive. Funny the way that works.

These names are just that; names. The ideas or ideals behind them never change. Don’t be fooled by a name.

Whether it be liberal, gay, African-American or pro-choice; with the left it is all about the packaging. What’s inside the package is immaterial.

Occupy Communism

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Diverse: of various kinds or forms; multiform (definition)

Tolerate: to allow the existence, presence, practice, or act of without prohibition or hindrance; permit. (definition)

The left and the progressives all claim to love diversity. They have the biggest tent and will welcome all comers for they are the most tolerant. Just witness the Occupy movement.

 All colors of the rainbow are welcomed into the lefts tent. Black, white, red, yellow.

Ones sexual orientation matters not to left. Whether they be heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, multisexual, asexueal, transexual, trisexual (did I miss any? I’m truly sorry if I did. I don’t intend to discriminate).

All  true and legitimate forms of thought are tolerated embraced by the ever tolerant and diversity oriented left. Come on into the tent. It’s ok to be different. It doesn’t matter. You can be a communist, a marxist, a Maoist, a black separatist, an anarchist, a radical islamist or just a poor misguided liberal.

Of course, what will not be tolerated is the intolerant right and their hate speech. Their ought to be a law against that.

That well-known anti-American radical, Ted Nugent must be spoken to. He needs to get his mind right (or left). Rush Limbaugh must be dealt with. His sponsors must abandon him immediately. Glenn Beck must be driven from the airwaves for his constant racist hate speech. The ex-marine must be detained (without being read his rights), whisked away to a nearby psychiatric hospital for evaluation and dealt with for his anti-government facebook posts. These folks are all threats to our national security. And because they are such serious security threats, it’s ok to be intolrant of their radical views.

However, those with the same middleclass values as the rest of us should be celebrated for their views, such as the New Black Panthers. So they claim on several occasions to want to kill all the cracker babies. What’s so offensive about that?  That sort of diversity should be celebrated. And how about that apple pie and chevrolet, middle american group, the Muslim Brotherhood. So their charter includes the destruction of the west and rule under Shariah. If those aren’t true american values, I’ll eat my hat.

They should never be questioned, for as everyone knows, conservatives are the only subversives. The left would never conceive of such a thing as subvertion. Certainly not this guy:

Conservatives Rule??

From The Blaze:

While many elements of society seem to surely be shifting ever-further to the left of the political spectrum, a recent Gallup poll released Thursday reveals otherwise. According to the survey, conservatives continue to make up the largest political segment in the country, outnumbering liberals nearly two-to-one.

The Gallup poll shows that 40 percent of Americans consider themselves conservative; 35 percent moderate; and 21 percent view themselves as liberal. The figures are no different than they were in 2010 and conservatives have outnumbered both moderates and liberals for three years running now.

Politico adds:

Conservatives began outstripping moderates in 2008, and the percentage of moderates has declined steadily over the last two decades, from 43 percent 1992 to 35 percent in 2011.

In fact, both self-identified conservatives and liberals have risen in number since the early 1990s, indicating a growing polarization in American politics.

While self-identified conservatives dominate the Republican Party, making up 71 percent, the Democratic Party is more split – 39 percent of Democrats view themselves as liberal, and 38 percent consider themselves moderates.

It might be worth noting that, per the poll’s findings, independents are mainly moderate (41 percent), but veer more towards conservatism (35 percent) than liberalism (20 percent).

The Gallup poll was conducted with 20,392 respondents and allows for a margin of error of plus or minus one.

Editorial Comment: Sorry to be a downer, but I personally am not buying any of this. If this poll is even close to accurate, how is it we keep electing and reelecting, squishy, middle of the road moderates. How is our frontrunning presidential candidate, “Thoroughly Moderate Mitt”.

Maybe it’s conservatives fear of losing that overshadows their better judgement? I don’t know what it is. All I know is that I am conservative & I am disappointed every election cycle.
