Video Podcast – RINO Kasich and his Veto Pen

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Good news for guns rights advocates and citizens of the State of Ohio. Outgoing Governor John Kasich was unable to prevail as he vetoed a bill involving self-defense shootings.

The son-of-a-mailman vetoed House Bill HB 228. In short the bill allows self-defense shooters the right of being considered innocent until proven guilty. The Governor prefers it the other way – guilty until proven innocent.

Thankfully the House and Senate overrode his veto by a wide margin.

I also discuss two upcoming bills in Ohio to be voted on in 2019. The stand-your-ground bill and a red flag law.

Video Podcast – Politics vs. Humanity

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

**Update** It’s been brought to my attention that segment 2 of this podcast is grainy and out of focus. My efforts to rectify have been unsuccessful. I apologize.

This story isn’t political. Okay the first half is. The second half has no political message, just a human message.

Segment one is of a Costa Rican retreat where whites are not invited or admitted. The retreat is only for people of color to take a break from white people.

Segment two is a story of kindness, generosity and color-blindness. It is decided not political. The juxtaposition of the two is fascinating. read more

Podcast – Money in Politics – Think Progress and Congressional Orientation

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

ThinkProgress wrote an article regarding the corrupting influence of money in Washington D.C. In the article they included thoughts by incoming democrat congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as well as a few other democratic socialists.

She expressed her displeasure with the freshman orientation being run by corporate lobbyists. I agree. But she and her fellow socialists thought they should also have heard from labor leaders and activists. I don’t agree.

I share my thoughts on the article, Ms. Cortez and corruption in Washington. read more

Video Podcast – George H W Bush – Porn in Prison – Stealing Elections in California

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

George H W Bush passed away a few days ago after living a full life and accomplishing much. But all that pales in comparison with the person that he was. By all measure, George Bush was a good man and that is far important than politics or accomplishment.

Is porn in prison a constitutional right? Well, 58 inmates at an Iowa prison seem to think so. They are suing the State for the right to continue to view pornography in private rooms set aside expressly for that purpose.

Stealing elections from Republicans is becoming commonplace in California. Republicans were leading, some by wide margins even a day after the polls closed. Yet all democrats in these contested districts magically came back to win every race. read more

Podcast – Florida Election Fraud

by: Brent Smith at Common Constitutionalist

With every passing day, things just get worse. Recent headlines attempt to paint the ballot problems in a certain Florida County as “Bungling.” Not hardly

What is happening in Broward County can only be classified as election fraud.

Senator Marco Rubio recently called it out and Representative Matt Gaetz obtained a court order to inspect the democrat vote altering malfeasance.

Can anything be done to fix the ongoing problem of election fraud in South Florida? read more

Video Podcast – The Pipe Bomber – I Succumbed to #MeToo

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Okay, the inept pipe bomber, Cesar Sayoc. Yep, he is apparently a registered Republican.

That’s true. But the more we learn about this dirt bag, the less Republican he becomes.

He may say he’s a Republican, but his thoughts and actions betray him. I examine them and conclude he has much more in common with the radical left and democrats than Trump and the Republicans.

The #MeToo movement started out innocently enough and did some good. But it has devolved into movement where it seems everything is now considered harassment.

Even a simple joke. I began to load a joke onto my website but stopped. This movement has now caused me to question whether a harmless, albeit slightly sexist joke would land me in hot water. And that’s the shame of an otherwise helpful movement being co-opted by radicals. read more

Video Podcast – Assimilation and Swedish Hand Grenades

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Isn’t Sweden one of the Nordic socialist paradises the left wants to emulate? Life is wonderful, everyone is happy and taken care of. It’s much better, they say, than the crappy capitalist and violent United States.

Nothing bad happens in Sweden, right?

Well, not exactly. It seems they have an increasing problem of non-assimilation of immigrants and now hand grenade attacks.

So what do the Swedish Authorities propose? That’s right – a hand grenade amnesty program. You too can turn in your hand grenades with no questions asked.

How great is that! read more

Podcast – Blasey Ford Gets an Award – Judge Meddles with Gun Rights

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Christine Blasey Ford is nominated for a distinguished achievement award by her alma mater, UNC, Chapel Hill. Not for her work, who according to the professor nominating her, is not at all that extraordinary, but because she spoke “her truth.” Not the truth – just her truth. And today that’s apparently good enough.

A Montana State judge granted to the city of Missoula, the right to require additional background checks for gun purchasers within their city limits, despite the State of Montana insisting they have no right to do so. read more

Podcast – It’s a Social Justice Weekend

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Yes, it’s an all social justice podcast, as I discuss Nike’s decision to promote Colin Kaepernick and his bogus “Stand for Something” platform. I explain that while this may seem like a bad business decision, it really isn’t. Nike understands its target audience, and it isn’t those guys burning their shoes.

In part two of social justice weekend, I discuss the reboot of the `90s television series, Party of Five. But this time around, it’s decidedly NOT all-American. What a surprise, that a Disney channel would promote illegal immigration. read more
