Video Podcast – Something Wrong with Tillerson – Trump Must Say No to Venezuela

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Rex Tillerson’s State Department doesn’t appear to be acting much differently than his predecessor, John F. Kerry. Like Kerry, he at least appears to also have an anti-Israel bias and worse, appears to be accepting the Muslim Brotherhood as a legitimate organization.

President Trump says he has not ruled military intervention regarding what is effectively a Venezuelan civil war. If not a civil war, certainly an internal conflict with which we have no business involving ourselves. read more

ACLU Wants Local Police to Thwart Trump’s Illegal Alien Crackdown

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Last week it was announced that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is launching an attack (rhetorically) on the Trump administration and his order to crack down on illegal immigration and sanctuary cities.

As an aside – isn’t it funny that of its four word name, the only word that may correctly apply is Union? This Union of radicals is, in my opinion, American in name only, hardly civil and has very little to do with liberty.

The Guardian.com, that paragon of conservatism, writes that, “The civil rights organization, which has emerged as one of the Trump administration’s major foes, plans to leverage individual cities’ local authority to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation.”

Well that’s interesting and befuddling, as States, cities and localities have zero authority regarding anything having to do with immigration – other than assisting federal law enforcement. I’m not a radical leftist ACLU attorney, but I can read. The Constitution is pretty clear on that point. Article I, section 8, clause 4 gives Congress full authority, “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization…,” and thus immigration. read more

VP Pick Tim Kaine is Cozy with Islamists

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Hillary Clinton had her pick of leftists and radicals to choose from as her vice presidential running mate. She could’ve gone with the radical Injun Elizabeth Warren – but then two far left radical screeching women might have been too much.

She had her choice of an Hispanic or black or any number of leftists ne’er-do-wells and she could’ve even asked the old socialist curmudgeon Bernie Sanders – but instead chose a middle-of-the-road whitey.

Virginia Senator Tim Kaine is said to be a great choice. It is interesting though that we don’t hear the Democrats, who were all about diversity (when it suits them), complaining about the choice of a cracker – and worse that he is billed as a boring common sense Democrat. But Kaine is neither boring nor common sense.

As we are all aware, radical Islam is on the rise. We see or hear of attacks virtually every day. Left or right, we know this is a growing problem and is sure to be one of the number one issues in the general election. Voters will no doubt judge the two tickets on their stances regarding this issue.

We know, or at least he tells us, where the Trumpster and his running mate stand. If we believe them, they will be tough on terrorism and terrorists. Hillary, as we know, has a sketchy past to put it kindly. But we haven’t heard where Kaine stands on the issue – until now. read more

Podcast – Islam is Sharia – Sharia is Islam – There can no Peace without Sharia

In this episode I dedicate the entire Podcast to Islam and the real stated goal of the religion of peace to spread Sharia throughout the world. I discuss the misconception the West has regarding the meaning of peace. Peace has a completely different meaning to us than it does to Muslims. It’s important that we learn this. And I discuss the Obama administration and its seemingly strange relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood. But is it really so strange. read more

Avoid Islamic Halal Products

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday my son and I were driving home from a pumpkin festival and regatta in a nearby town. Regatta you say? Yes, a regatta – where locals and folks from surrounding towns grow these huge 1,000 pound pumpkins, hollow them out, launch them into a river, climb into them and race them. Only in America baby!

Anyway, on the way home, we passed a small convenience/grocery store. On the sign outside the store was an indication that they sold “halal meats.”

My son noticed it and asked me what halal was. I gazed over at him, and he knew – oh here we go – and we were off to the races! He had no idea what halal was, but by my expression, he instinctively knew it wasn’t anything good. We do this a lot.

Halal is an Arabic word that means “permissible.” But permissible to whom or what? Well, halal food for Muslims is prescribed by the Koran, but is also based on the teachings of Islamic scholars and tradition.

Islamic scholars claim halal beef and lamb must be slaughtered according to Islamic practices, with clean instruments that are pork and alcohol free and that halal meat is simply meat that has been carefully prepared to be clean in according to Islamic tradition. So far, this sounds okay, and perfectly innocuous. It actually sounds similar to something certified as being kosher.

If you think this, you’d be wrong. read more

The Muslim “Clock Boy” Is a Set up

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Several days ago I wrote about a 14-year-old Muslim boy in Irving Texas, who, by all accounts at the time, was just an innocent Texas high schooler. I wrote that he built a clock from scratch out of parts he bought. Unfortunately, due to the appearance of the “homemade clock” (it looked like a tiny suitcase bomb), the police were called to the school and he was arrested for making what the cops called a “hoax bomb.”

Well, fast-forward several days, and now it seems Ahmed the clockmaker isn’t as he appeared. First thing to be discovered was that the homemade clock was not homemade, but merely a stripped-down, disassembled 30+ year old RadioShack digital clock. So, he lied about that.

Now we discover that another innocent member of Ahmed Mohammed’s family was suspended for a “bomb related accusation.” She was accused of wanting to blow up her school. The 17-year-old sister said she was suspended for “something I had nothing to do with.”

In my article, I described a televised interview I saw on MSNBC with Ahmed and a representative from CAIR. The fact that CAIR was on hand set off alarm bells in my head, but I watched anyway.

I noticed every time the boy spoke, he would constantly glance off screen, as if he was being coached. Now I hear that Mark Cuban spoke to the boy on the phone recently, and experienced the same thing. read more

The NRA, Grover Norquist, and the Muslim Brotherhood

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I know I may tick some people off with this post, so before I begin I’d like to remind everyone that there are no sacred cows when it comes to the defense of this country or the Constitution, and its ideals and values. I mean no person or organization. In other words – don’t shoot the messenger.

If I’m wrong about something, or appear to be shielding or wrongly defending someone, some group or organization, I would hope someone would NRAcall me out and set me straight, or at least present another point of view.

I say this because I’m going to continue what Glenn Beck began yesterday – by calling out the NRA over their association with Grover Norquist.

Now, some might say – oh no, not Glenn Beck. He’s a crazy religious zealot. Well, some might say that, but if he’s right about something, why does it matter. If it were Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi standing up for what is right, it still would not change my position.

I’ve been a proud member of the NRA for years and have defended them several times through various articles. They are the number one defender of the Second Amendment and I feel quite certain we are all better off because they are around. Without their support of our God given right to keep and bear arms, we might look like most of Europe by now.

But then I heard this just yesterday – that Grover Norquist is up for re-election to the board of directors of the National Rifle Association. My first thought was why he is on the board to begin with. How did he land there in the first place? My second was – okay, he’s there but maybe they can rectify their error, unless no one has looked into Grover’s background or affiliations, which appears to be evident, for if they had they should want nothing to do with him. read more

Turkey Wants War With Israel?

from The Clarion Project:

A terror-linked charity closely linked to the Turkish government is organizing human shields in the Gaza Strip and pledging to “erect the flag of Islam everywhere.” Prime Minister Erdogan is a top backer of Hamas and allows this charity, the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), to operate.

IHH’s website has a photo of the sign-up event in front of the Israeli embassy. The website refers to the Hamas terrorists targeted by Israel as “resistance fighters.” CNN Turkey reports that IHH has signed up at least 73 volunteers to act as human shields in Gaza, with 38 being women.

Another page on the website talks about an IHH press conference where its president, Bulent Yildirim, openly talked about its organizing of human shields. Its press release was endorsed by the Association of Muslim Scholars, a body led by the spiritual leader of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

“We, as IHH started the human shield project,” Yildirim said. read more

Guess Who’s Crossing the Border?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

By now, most of us on this side of the pen, or the display, or the microphone, have written or spoken of the Mexican-American border problem.

With thousands upon thousands of “children” crossing every week, it would seem that our southern border is wide open. Thanks to our president, the border patrol and other authorities are overwhelmed, leaving little if any man power to patrol.

So, who else might be taking advantage of the Southern sieve? It certainly wouldn’t be radical Islamic terrorists, would it?

Now, we commentators have also written and spoken extensively of the Cloward and Piven strategy – a strategy to purposely overwhelm the system to the point of collapse. We have postulated that this is exactly what Obama is doing at our southern border.

I believe this to be true. But I also contend that this strategy may have dire consequences beyond just the illegal immigrant flood.

Already these illegals are being shipped all over the country to take up residence at military bases – Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, California, and even Massachusetts. And these are the ones that we know of. No doubt the list of states will grow as more and more enter. read more

Grover Norquist, The Muslim Brotherhood & the Republican Party

The following are excerpts from a Clarion Project article entitled “Grover Norquist & Co. Build Islamist Influence in GOP

How the GOP Came to Embrace the Muslim Brotherhood Lobby

Islamism is not a partisan issue. Special interests, major companies and foreign powers have long tried to affect both political parties—and the Muslim Brotherhood lobby is no different. Ten former senior officials, including a former CIA director, have issued a  joint statement with meticulous documentation about how the Republican Party was and is influenced by this lobby.

In the 1980s, the FBI recruited a confidential source deep inside the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood lobby. He warned that the Brotherhood established a network of front groups including the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), Muslim Students Association, Islamic Society of North America and North American Islamic Trust. One of the chief objectives was to penetrate the U.S. government with sympathizers and IIIT already claimed success. The Brotherhood donated to campaigns on both sides of the political aisle and met with officials involved in foreign policy.

The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood drafted a secret plan in 1991 that defined its “work in America as a kind of grand jihad…in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” You may read articles I wrote in 2012 entitled, “The Project” and “The Project, Part Deux” on the subject.

The most senior elements of the Brotherhood lobby handled outreach to the Clinton Administration and both political parties, especially the presidential campaign of then-Texas Governor George W. Bush.

Sami al-Arian was a central figure. He admits having been a Muslim Brotherhood member from 1978 to 1982, but his involvement in the American lobby continued after that.

In 2000, Abdurrahman Alamoudi of the Muslim American Council was asked by an Islamic website how Muslims should “decrease the influence of the Zionist lobby on presidential candidates.” He said they must elect sympathetic candidates like Rep. Tom Campbell (R-CA). Rep. Campbell spoke at the Brotherhood lobby’s events and touted their causes. read more
