Dems Not to Lose Strategy is a sure fire Win for Trump

A couple of days ago I ran across an article on the Atlantic website entitled, “How Not to Lose to Donald Trump,” by none other than Rahm Emanuel, current Mayor of Chicago, and former Chief of Staff/Consigliere to then president Barack Obama.

He is famous, or infamous, for the saying, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. … This crisis provides the opportunity for us to do things that you could not before.”

And this, of course, goes for real and imagined or fabricated crises.

But coming from someone like Emanuel, I thought this strategy odd, that he would play not to lose instead of playing to win.

From the get-go, my first reaction was football. read more

Has Rahm Emanuel Foreshadowed the Death of the Democrat Party

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Rahm Emanuel, democrat Mayor of Chicago, had some sage advice for all the other hard leftists in the Party nationwide.

In a speech  he gave on Monday at Stanford University, he told his fellow dems to “Take a chill pill, man. You gotta be in this for the long haul.” He also added that if some had dreams of winning back power two years from now, “It ain’t gonna happen in 2018.”

Ahhh – music to my ears. But if they keep this up – he’s right – they will be hard pressed to win anything in 2018 – or beyond. And that is Emanuel’s point.

Communist and former Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones was quoted as saying: “I’m willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends.”

In others words, I will hide my outward radical leftist façade from the public and remake myself into a respectable member of society. I will stop marching and protesting and trade in my Che Guevara t-shirt for a suit. I’ll still be a Marxist. I will just no longer look and sound so conspicuous and scary. read more

First There was New Fallujah – Now There’s Chiraq

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Most of us on the right understand when someone speaks of New Fallujah, they mean the city of Detroit. It was so named due to the decay and violence that has befallen the city for years.

But as far as violence goes, no city can hold a candle to Chicago – that is until recently when, I believe, the city of Baltimore hit the per capita murder record. But the Baltimore violence was manufactured from recent events, namely the death of Freddie Gray, and the overblown, trumped up charges (in my opinion) by the race-hustling Mayor and prosecutor.

In other words, at the end of the day, Chicago will remain the undisputed champion of black on black violence.

Now many, if not most, on the left simply refuse to acknowledge Chicago’s problems. They simply ignore them, or change the subject when the topic is broached.

However one such liberal who is not shying away is filmmaker Spike Lee, who’s latest movie is about the gangs and violence plaguing the streets of Chicago. His film is entitled “CHI-RAQ,” as Lee recently tweeted – combining Chicago and Iraq. read more

Witness the Left Turning on Their Own

by: the Common Constitutionalist

For years the political class, both democrat and republican have been steadily shifting to the left. The democrat party has moved so far left, it has virtually run out of room, and the establishment republicans have shifted left to fill the big government progressive void that remained after the dems democratrepublicanshift.

We can all see this shift to the left in the Republican Party, beholding to their big money, pay to play donors, and others who think a big bloated federal government is okay, so long as they run it.

It has always been us conservatives who complained about our party not doing our bidding, so to speak – that the GOP was the fractured party. Many would gripe about a lack of republican unity. Why can’t we unite like the democrats?

Well, it seems the days of democrat unity may be coming to a close. It appears we may have entered the era of the loony left. An era when merely being a liberal isn’t left enough. read more

Come Visit Chicago…You May Live Long Enough to Leave

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

Just this past weekend it was reported that an 11-year-old girl was shot and killed in Chicago by a stray bullet.

Shamiya Adams was at a sleepover Friday night. The girls were making s’mores when gunshots rang out nearby. Evidently one of the bullets entered the house, struck and killed her.

In fact, a total of 22 people were shot just that Friday night in Chicago. And just a few weeks after 60 were shot over the Fourth of July weekend. That’s 26 more than were shot over the same holiday weekend in 2013.

Virtually all the shootings have been black on black, or Latino or let’s just say, minority on minority.

Yet, when reporting on the child shooting incident, ThinkProgress felt compelled to report that “A recent study found that African Americans were 10 times more likely to be shot by police than white people.”

Huh? None of the reported shootings were by police, yet the leftist radicals at ThinkProgress can’t help themselves. They have to somehow weave the “evil cops” into their narrative.

Of course ThinkProgress will never conclude that Chicago’s “gun violence” problem has anything to do with the city’s ridiculous anti-gun laws. read more

Is this Chicago or Cairo?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Despite being seemingly bumped from the front pages, gun control is alive and well. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband showed up in New Hampshire last week to promote their anti-gun agenda. It appears as if Mayor Bloomberg is fronting the money for this nationwide tour. Big shocker.

Since the Newtown shooting it seems there haven’t been any mass murders. “Gun violence” in America seems to have temporarily subsided. We haven’t heard of any shootings in months.

Could that really be or is it just not being reported? Well, you’d be smart to choose the latter.

There is in fact gun violence and it’s happening in a most unexpected place; Chicago, Obama’s hometown. Correction: to anyone who pays attention, it is completely expected.

I hope everyone had a nice relaxing Independence Day holiday weekend; parades, picnics, family gatherings.

You may have done those things but the people of Chicago spent their long weekend dodging bullets. Of course watching, listening to or reading any national media, one would never know.

In Chicago, over the holiday weekend, a mere 74 people were shot and 12 were killed. That’s from Wednesday night to Sunday night!

This happens month after month, year after year in a city with possibly the strictest gun control in the country. The totals for 2013 and we’re only halfway, are 870 shot and wounded, 180 shot and killed and 211 total homicides (knives, clubs, fists, etc.).

So why is this not front page, above the fold in the New York Times? Why did I not see the weekend’s carnage when I opened my Internet browser? Could it be the mainstream press really does have an agenda? Could be.

Who is the mayor of Chicago? Oh that’s right, it’s Rahm Emanuel, friend of both the Clinton’s and Obama.

The media wouldn’t actually try to paper over the 1037 murders that have occurred since 2011 when Rahm took office would they? I’m sure that’s the farthest thing from the truth.

So let’s check the Internet. Pick a search engine. I tried both Google and Bing. There were many reports of the weekend violence, but all were from conservative or local/regional sites. Nothing from the Times online, MSNBC, Washington Post, et al.

Several page searches in, I did stumble upon a CNN article. Frankly I was stunned to find they would report on it. I can’t say I was surprised to find that CNN, with a positive spin, actually reported gun violence was down. The report claimed that the city was making progress but according to officials there was much to be done. That’s an understatement! But after closer examination I noticed the article was from June, when only 40 were murdered and 225 shot and wounded. That’s progress?

They can try to sugarcoat this all they want but heck, there were more people shot in Chicago this past weekend than in Egypt.

So do your own search and tell me that the press doesn’t have an agenda, or maybe they just don’t think blacks being shot and murdered is important, unless your name is Trayvon.

So Long to Second Amendment

The collection agency for the Federal Reserve known as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is working with legislators to gain control over the rights of Americans. Without the right to due process, the IRS can simply claim a citizen owes $50,000 dollars or more to their illegal operation. This accusation alone will give their agency the right to revoke American’s travel rights and even remove the right to own a firearm.

With the help of Representatives like Barbara Boxer of California, a bill rapidly working through Capitol Hill (passed through the Senate and is currently up for review in the House) will give the IRS power to:

  • Accuse Americans of delinquency of tax payment without due process
  • Revoke their passports and travel rights
  • Place the accused in a centralize database
  • Authorize the removal of their right to own a firearm

No formal charges are required. Simply the accusation from the IRS is sufficed to strip American citizens of their Constitutional rights.

“There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense — only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more,”reports the Daily Economist.

In essence, these blacklisted citizens would be remotely labeled “domestic terrorists” and treated as such.

Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel bragged to the Brady Center that the ‘No Fly’ list. Emanuel proudly stated that those on the “no fly” list could not own a firearm because of their suspicious status.

Moreover, the IRS and this bill will suspend travel rights to more than “30,000 active-duty troops and a similar number of reserve-component members owe the Internal Revenue Service a collective $390 million in back taxes, according to IRS data,” reports WTLX.

And federal employees are not immune to this revoking of their rights. IRS figures show that in 2010, “98,000 federal employees owed a combined $1 billion in back taxes.” As well as a shocking amount of members of the Senate combined owe an estimated $2 million dollars in unpaid taxes.

As this move by the Federal Reserve, with support by our elected officials, empowers the IRS to bully all citizens of America into paying an unconstitutional tax, we can clearly see that the central banking cartels are in charge of the US and not any branch of US government; including their puppet Barack Obama.

This more toward suspicion without accusation is the slow and incremental tip-toe by the global Elite toward an encompassing takeover of our American Republic and transform it into a Fascist dictatorship. The Obama administration, through the NDAA, signing statements, and executive orders has continued the process started by certain previous Presidents. And this has all happened right under our noses. Without much resistance by the American public, our US Constitution is being shredded.

The time has come to stop complying with this system.

The global Elite will not stop until they have their One World Government. There is no negotiating. They demand total submission of the populations of all nations and countries.

We out number them dramatically.

We can stop them once we unilaterally stop complying with their takeover.
