Podcast – Liberal Media Shields Democrat Criminal – Should a President Receive a Pension – Venezuelan Protesters Throwing Poo Bombs

The New York Times must have been compelled to report on the conviction of one of their own, former U.S. Congresswoman Corrine Brown, but did their best to never mention that she is a Democrat. They can’t wait to announce when Republicans go up the river, but hid the fact that Brown was a liberal hack Dem.

It was decided long ago that a former President will receive a pension. If this is the case, it should not be tied to whether or not they choose to cash in after they leave office. It should not be political.

In Venezuela, protesters have taken to throwing anything they can when clashing with police. They’ve design a new weapon – called the poopootov cocktail.

How to make Trump more popular

How would one make Donald Trump more popular? By doing everything the left is currently.

Riots have simultaneously sprung up in city after city across our country. For days, so-called “protesters” have taken to the streets of Portland, Los Angeles, Oakland, Las Vegas, NYC, as well as many more, even including Salt Lake City.

The leftist press, like CNN, insists on continuing to call these uprisings, protests. “Thousands protesting Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election took to the streets for a third night of demonstrations and vigils in several U.S. cities,” dutifully reports CNN. read more

Podcast – President Calls for a Total Ban – Happenings in Rio – Navy Dumps the Blue Camo

No, it’s not Obama or the Trumpster, but the president of the Czech Republic who is calling for a total ban on all migrants into his country. President Milos Zeman has urged his country to seal the border due to the fear of terrorist attacks as have happened in other European nations. And that’s not all he is proposing.

The Olympic Games have begun, and with them have also begun local upheaval, riots, gun-fire and athletes doing what they are not supposed to. Just another great choice of the International Olympic Committee to select a third world nation to host the games.

The U.S. Navy is finally getting rid of possibly the worlds dumbest camouflage uniform – the blueberry and replacing it with yet another camo work uniform. I question the sanity of this decision. read more

Workers Protest Wendy’s For Higher Wages

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Apparently Wendy’s fast food restaurants are in hot water over workers wages. No, it’s not the Wendy’s employees who are complaining – it’s the harvesters who provide the tomatoes to thousands of U.S. franchises and company owned stores.

The Coalition of Immokalee Workers have taken to protesting to promote workers’ rights in the fields and an extra penny per pound of tomatoes picked to be added to the workers’ pay. “Participating companies pay the extra penny-per-pound to their tomato growers to supplement field worker wages in Florida and six other states: Georgia, the Carolinas, Maryland, Virginia and New Jersey. Immokalee is a southwest Florida farming town about 100 miles from Palm Beach where the coalition is based.”

To date Wendy’s is the only major fast food chain which hasn’t knuckled under to the pressure of the coalition. McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Subway and Burger King have all signed on to the “Fair Food Program.”

Evidently, the cause is so important that it even attracted Ethel Kennedy, the widow of the late Robert F. Kennedy. Ethel, with her net worth of only $50 million, joined other oppressed protesters in a march down the sidewalks of Palm Beach/West Palm Beach, Florida, where Wendy’s billionaire CEO, Nelson Peltz resides. There the protesters “acted out a skit in which an effigy of a Wendy’s character got married to a character called ‘Mr. Exploitation.’” How quaint – and proletariat. read more

More Government Please

from: The American Thinker

It is interesting to watch the aftermath of the Eric Garner Grand Jury decision coming so soon after Ferguson.  “White Police Officer Once Again Kills Unarmed Black Man – And Gets Away with It” is already the reaction in many places.  Sides are drawn and the usual suspects race-bait, pontificate, riot and ask for calm, or in Jesse Jackson’s case, donations.

Other than there being a white police officer and a black man dying while resisting arrest, these cases are not similar, no matter what many would like you to believe.  In one instance, the Grand Jury determined that Officer Wilson killed Michael Brown in self-defense.  Although so far we have not been privy to the evidence in the Garner decision, the video is fairly compelling that none of the officers’ lives were in jeopardy.  read more

Keystone Could Spark Protests

Environmentalist groups are training activists nationwide to conduct a mass civil disobedience campaign if the State Department recommends approval of the Keystone pipeline.

Three of those groups—CREDO Action, the Rainforest Action Network, and The Other 98%—say they have tens of thousands of supporters who have pledged to partake in the campaign.

“More than 69,000 people have pledged to risk arrest in acts of peaceful, dignified civil disobedience if the State Department issues a draft National Interest Determination (NID) that recommends approval of the Keystone XL pipeline,” CREDO Action said in a Friday email.

The pledge aims to “convince the White House that it will be politically unfeasible to go forward” with Keystone, according to a preface to the pledge on CREDO’s website.

“Our goal is not to get arrested,” CREDO says. “But if [President Barack Obama] shows clear signs he that he is preparing to approve it, we will be ready.”

CREDO said the three groups have organized events in 25 American cities to train activists in conducting protest activities.

“More than 750 people have signed up to lead local actions in their communities and attend the organizer trainings,” the organization wrote.

CREDO and others involved in the effort portray it as a grassroots push against Keystone. But pipeline supporters claim the environmentalist groups organizing the campaign are well-funded “astroturf” organizations.

“Organizers and trainers are all foundation-funded,” said Ron Arnold, executive vice president of the Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise and author of EcoTerror: The Violent Agenda to Save Nature.

Islamic Dictator in Egypt?

Protests rock Egypt after Morsi seizes new powers

from: Reuters

with comments provided by: the Common Constitutionalist [  ]

Protesters stormed the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood’s party in Alexandria on Friday, throwing chairs and books into the street and setting them alight, after the Egyptian president granted himself sweeping new powers. [Really, who would have seen this coming. Certainly not Bill Kristol ]

Supporters of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and opponents also threw stones at each other near a mosque in the city, Egypt’s second largest, a witness said. [ Have you noticed, they never seem to run out of stones in these middle-east cities. Do they have them trucked in or something for these special occasions? ]

Two cars had glass smashed as the clashes moved away from the area.

In Port Said, another port on the Mediterranean, hundreds of protesters gathered outside the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice party headquarters and pelted it with rocks. Some tried to storm it but did not enter, another witness said. There’s the rocks again. Maybe I’ll develop a vending machine that dispenses rocks. Maybe a nickel a rock or 25 for a dollar. ]

In Cairo, thousands demonstrated against the decree issued on Wednesday night, calling Morsi “pharaoh” for seizing new powers.

Morsi’s decree exempting all his decisions from legal challenge until a new parliament was elected caused fury amongst his opponents on Friday who accused him of being the new Hosni Mubarak and hijacking the revolution. [ Didn’t they vote this guy in? Could the Egyptians have been that stupid not to know who Morsi is? On the hand, I should talk; look who we just reelected. ]

Morsi’s aides said the decree was to speed up a protracted transition that has been hindered by legal obstacles but Morsi’s rivals were quick to condemn him as a new autocratic pharaoh who wanted to impose his Islamist vision on Egypt. [ Wow! That sounds eerily familiar; kind of like an Executive Order from a president who just can’t wait around for Congress to act. ]

“Morsi a ‘temporary’ dictator,” was the headline in the independent daily Al-Masry Al-Youm and hundreds of protesters in Tahrir Square, the heart of the 2011 anti-Mubarak uprising, demanded Morsi quit, accusing him of launching a “coup”.

Buoyed by accolades from around the world for mediating a truce between Hamas and Israel, Morsi on Thursday ordered that an Islamist-dominated assembly writing the new constitution could not be dissolved by legal challenges. [ Did anyone else notice that an hour after the treaty was announced, Hamas lobbed a rocket into Israel? Heck of a job, eh? ]

Morsi, an Islamist whose roots are in the Muslim Brotherhood party, also gave himself sweeping powers that allowed him to sack the unpopular general prosecutor and opened the door for a retrial for Mubarak and his aides.

The president’s decree aimed to end the logjam and push Egypt, the Arab world’s most populous nation, more quickly on its democratic path, the presidential spokesman said. [ I think that may be a typo. I think they meant to write theocratic, not democratic, but maybe I’m just splitting hairs. Tomato, Tomahto. ]

“President Morsi said we must go out of the bottleneck without breaking the bottle,” Yasser Ali told Reuters.

The president said any decrees he issued while no parliament sat, could not be challenged; moves that consolidated his powers but look set to polarize Egypt further, threatening more turbulence in a nation at the heart of the Arab Spring.

“The people want to bring down the regime,” shouted protesters in Tahrir, echoing one of the chants that was used in the uprising that forced Mubarak to step down.

The decree is bound to worry Western allies, particularly the United States, a generous benefactor to Egypt’s army, which effusively praised Egypt for its part in bringing Israelis and Palestinians to a ceasefire on Wednesday. [ I can guarntee the Obama administration isn’t the slightest bit worried. I’d lay odds they are supporting Morsi and the Brotherhood government. ]

The West may become concerned about measures that, for example, undermine judicial independence. But one Western diplomat said it was too early to judge and his nation would watch how the decree was exercised in the coming days. [ As long as he is a benevolent dictator, like our beloved leader. ]

“We are very concerned about the possible huge ramifications of this declaration on human rights and the rule of law in Egypt,” Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay, said at the United Nations in Geneva. [ Really! Human Rights? The UN is only ever concerned with human rights abuses when they can claim America is at fault. ]

“The decree is basically a coup on state institutions and the rule of law that is likely to undermine the revolution and the transition to democracy,” Mervat Ahmed, an independent activist in Tahrir protesting against the decree, said. “I worry Morsi will be another dictator like the one before him.” [ No need to worry. It’s too late for that. He will be, and like us here in the U.S., you’re stuck with him. ]

Leading liberal politician Mohamed ElBaradei, who joined other politicians on Thursday night to demand the decree was withdrawn, wrote on his Twitter account that Morsi had “usurped all state powers and appointed himself Egypt’s new pharaoh”.

Just Another Peaceful Gathering

From Common Constitutionalst contributing writer, Beverly Smith:

Why does the left always resort to violence, vandalism and mayhem?

On Saturday, in Oakland, the peace loving occupy wall streeters took to the streets and city hall, reeking havoc for the police, citizenry and government officials.

Naturally the taxpayers will, once again, be stuck with the cleanup bill.

They burned flags, smashed glass and scrawled graffiti. Why? No one ever asks why. What’s the point they are trying to make with the violence?

Didn’t they tell the world, when the movement began last summer, their protests would be peaceful? I swear I read that somewhere, way back when.

The mayor of Oakland, Jean Quon, is now at her wits end. She has called for an end to the violence saying, “Stop using Oakland as it’s [OWS] playground.”

Can you imagine if kids acted like this at a real playground?

That’s a marked change from her unwavering support of the movement in October(2011).

At the protests inception Quon said, “We support the goals of the Occupy Wall Street movement: We have high levels of unemployment and we have high levels of foreclosure that makes Oakland part of the 99% too. We are a progressive city and tolerant of many opinions. We may not always agree, but we all have a right to be heard”.

Tolerant of many opinions, eh. I wonder what opinions they wouldn’t tolerate? That was a rhetorical question.

Now that the OWS crowd has predictably turned violent, Quon says, “People in the community and in the occupy movement have to stop making excuses for this behavior.”

So also must all government officials everywhere, as well as the media.

The OWSers actually had the nerve to criticize the behavior of the police! Isn’t that rich?

Of course, what we do hear is dead silence. Nothing from our fearless leader Obama, Pelosi (her home state), Eric Holder, etc. Where’s governor Moonbeam, Jerry Brown?
Mayor Quon is left dangling in the wind and the more deafening the silence becomes, the more emboldened the protesters become.

Chaos is just what the left truly wants. Let the violence escalate, suspend habeas corpus, declare martial law and Obama becomes dictator.

Maybe I just answered my own question. After all, some of the originators of this movement are confidants of “The One”.
