Video Podcast – Schools Need a Lesson on the Fourth Amendment

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A civil liberties attorney has a problem with two Indiana public high schools. The schools announced that they will randomly drug test 10 students who wish to engage in extracurricular activities, for 10 drugs.

The attorney claims this is a Constitutional violation under the Fourth Amendment.

Surprise, surprise – I agree, because it is and in today’s podcast I explain the reason why. read more

Video Podcast – Lindsey Graham Doesn’t Fall for Leftist Gotcha Setup

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Senator Lindsey Graham didn’t take the bait from a leftist activist who approached him.

She told him she was raped over a decade ago, didn’t remember the exact date, but asked if Senator Graham believed her anyway.

This was a setup by a leftist plant to evoke a reaction. It would then be used as ammunition to further attack Graham. Thankfully the Senator did not take the bait.

But these are the tactics of today’s despicable left. read more

Video Podcast – Kavanaugh Circus a Microcosm of Both Dysfunctional Political Parties

By: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss seemingly a number of topics, from the Ford – Kavanaugh debacle, to her specifically, to the Republicans and the democrats, to elections, to who controls government, Trump and Pence and that they’re really all the intertwined

Watching this Senate hearing and the soap opera surrounding it is indeed a microcosm of both dysfunctional political parties and our government as a whole. read more

Video Podcast – Trump Worse than Hitler – Gay Federal Reserve – Feinstein October Surprise

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

An establishment Republican “strategist” went on MSNBC to decry president Trump by basically saying that if he had a time machine, he would rather travel back and change Trump rather than stop Adolf Hitler.

The Federal Reserve now has its first openly gay female bank head. Hooray for the Fed!

Senator Diane Feinstein is attempting to “October Surprise” Trump’s supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with a letter accusing him of sexual misconduct in high school. Better late than never, eh Di-Fi. read more

Video Podcast – Apologies to Immigrants – Take a Knee

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Let’s talk about another example of democrat symbolism over substance.

California state legislators passed a resolution demanding that president Trump and Congress apologize for separating families at the border. But would an apology be just a first step to something more?

A federal district court judge, administering the oath of citizenship, tells the new Americans to “take a knee” in protest. Yes, that’s what a citizen wants hear. Welcome to America new citizen. Too bad the country you chose is so awful. read more

Video Podcast – You can put a Price on a Human Life

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

And that price is not nearly as much as you might think.

Last Saturday, lil-Chelsea Clinton spoke at a #RiseUpforRoe event in New York, where she and other pro-abortion leftist women rallied against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Today I discuss what she said and why it is just so absurd, and frankly just wrong. read more

Video Podcast – No Mo Money for No Mo NRA

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

You know the saying: “People vote with their wallets.” It means that people cast their vote for whomever and whatever has or will benefit them financially, or that they find vitally important.

But the saying applies to everything – not just elections. It even applies to charities and fund-raising.

The leftist group National March on the NRA, the NMNRA, which I lovingly call No Mo NRA, found this out after their pitiful crowd-funding effort. read more

Video Podcast – Korean War Remains Returned – GDP Growth

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The remains of multiple of U.S. troops killed in the Korean War more than six decades ago are headed back to America now after North Korean officials turned them over to military officials, the White House announced Thursday night. In all, 55 cases of remains were return so far.

And you probably noticed the United Nations banner wrapped around the crates rather than the American flag. There’s a reason for that. It ain’t a good one, but it’s America’s fault. More precisely, it’s an American President’s fault.

And let’s talk GDP growth, and why it may end up being a problem. Why? Three words: The Federal Reserve. read more

Video Podcast – Trumps Words are Just That – Words

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

It’s patently obvious that both the left and establishment right hate president Trump.

Over the years, with practically every other politician, we have accepted that what they say should be taken with a massive grain of salt.

But now all of a sudden, we’re expected to treat Trump differently. Now every “word” he utters evidently carries the weight of the world. Well, I’m here to tell you – that’s crap.

All of us should have figured out by now that Trump just says stuff, maybe strategically, or merely to get a rise out of some. Because of the visceral hatred they have of him, they will never cut him any slack like they’ve done with so many before him.

Well, they’re just words folks. Time to get over it.

Video Podcast – Russia Indictments – Universal Basic Income is a Crock

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss briefly why the Mueller indictments of Russian “Agents” is a monumental waste of time. Also, regardless of whether we think they are guilty or not, an indictment is not proof of that guilt.

My main topic however, is the Mayor of Stockton California’s lame-brain idea of giving 100 lucky winners $500 a month as a Universal Basic Income. In other words, the city would provide more freebies to people who have to do nothing for it. Great idea. Let’s not teach anyone to fish, but just the give the fish away. Worst idea yet! read more
