Video Podcast – The Shutdown – The Reality of Immigration – Democrat Infighting

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The dreaded government shutdown is upon us. Anyone notice? Not yet at least. But is the shutdown, that we well know is a mere slowdown, a real problem? Is it real or just imaginary? Is the angst everyone claims to be feeling over the shutdown psychosomatic – just a Pavlovian response?

Leftists in France are finding out first hand, the joys of being overrun with refugees and immigrants. Their quest for a truly diverse society that they so often claim to want is backfiring. The French are finding it difficult for their children to obtain a decent education, due to the sudden diverse nature of their schools.

The democrats may not have as easy a time in the mid-term elections as is being promoted by the left. Caustic infighting among the Hillary/Bernie factions continues to fracture the party. And it appears as if they will be hard-pressed to find common ground before November. Coupled with their hopeless lack of fundraising and it may be a recipe for disaster. read more

Video Podcast – Feelin the Republican Bern – Leftists took to Twitter

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Recently, a camera wielding interviewer took to the streets of New York City. There he founds liberals who were actually quite enamored with the new Republican Tax law.

How could this be you may ask? Easy – the roving conservative reporter presented the Republican plan as one authored by their hero Bernie Sanders. These leftists agreed with practically every proposal within the plan, when they thought it originated with Bernie.

Some radical leftists took to Twitter a few days ago to lament not just the Republican tax plan, but Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise’s help in passing it.

Recall that Scalise was the unfortunate soul gunned down by another unhinged Bernie supporter during a Congressional baseball earlier this year.

They tweeted that the shooter should have finished the job. read more

Video Podcast – Let’s Talk Taxes

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The Senate has now passed their version of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The House has already passed their version. Now it’s on to joint committee to iron out the differences and vote. Then it’s off to the President’s desk for his signature.

Is the Senate version any good? That depends on you ask. But it’s an improvement over our current mess.

The only republican to vote against it was Bob Corker of Tennessee.

I’ll discuss the bill, what a phony Senator Corker is and my thoughts on the bill. I’ll also give my sales pitch for a different type of tax. read more

Video Podcast – The American Balancing Act Between Mob Rule and Despotism

As Thanksgiving is almost upon us, my Thanksgiving wish is travel back in time and thank the founders for giving us America. I’d let them know that their efforts were not in vain – that they did make a difference.

Sadly, despite their efforts, America as they envisioned can not be sustained for ever. Eventually even America will succumb to anarchy or totalitarian rule. Their goal was to maintain that delicate balance between the two.

But they knew, and as Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, that eventually it will be our right, our duty, to throw off our Government and reset the system.

Video Podcast – Louis C.K. Admits Wrongdoing – Democracy on the Orville

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Comedian Louis C.K. did something not have. When presented with accusations of sexual misconduct and overall lewd behavior, he admitted that all the accusation were true. That’s astounding considering that the other Hollywood dirtbags are either denying or just running away. I explore this phenomenon.

A television program called the Orville is created, written and stars comedian Seth MacFarlane. It’s like Star Trek with some comedy. One episode was particularly fascinating as it dealt with democracy. Not democracy as many Americans think, but true democracy – as in mob rule. Only this time the mob all have smart phones. read more

Video Podcast – How to Pay for Infrastructure

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Today I discuss the nation’s infrastructure that is apparently in need of a serious upgrade – at least according to the current administration.

The question is how we pay for the new massive public works program. Well, some have floated the idea of increasing the gas tax by seven cents a gallon.

I explain why this is a bad idea, as is the reasoning behind it and whether we even should. read more

Video Podcast – The Pine Tree Riot Kicked off a Revolution

Today, I traveled to a remote location of incredible and historic importance – despite few knowing of its history. It was the site of what is referred to as the Pine Tree Riot. It took place only miles up the road from my home in New Hampshire. If you are a Revolutionary War buff, New England is good place to be.

My journey took me to three places – Mast Road, Clements Mill and Quimby’s Inn. All are significant to the story.

To my knowledge, the Pine Tree Riot is first armed insurrection against the crown of England, and I ended up right where it took place. Pretty Cool!! read more

Video Podcast – Thank You for Flying ICE Air

Just how are illegal immigrants deported anyway? It turns out there a few ways. One is to hoof-it back across the border from whence they came. Another is a chartered bus that our benevolent federal government provides, and a third is by aircraft.

They call it ICE-Air, owing to the fact that the aircraft is provided by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. They charter many flights a year to ferry illegals back to their homeland where they belong – because they certainly don’t belong here in America.

Today I discuss ICE-Air, how it works and maybe an idea or two on improving the system of deportation. read more

Video Podcast – Enough with NFL Social Justice

by: the Common Constitutionalist

At this point, NFL players, coaches, owners and executives deserve to be bashed by fans – including the President. You brought this on yourselves with your phony virtue signaling and hand-wringing.

America is the greatest country on Earth and this country and all your fans have afforded you the opportunity to play a GAME for a very good living. Now you want to bite off the hands that feed you and call it unity.

Well, we’re not buying what you’re selling. And it’s evident from the ratings and stock prices of the networks which broadcast your games. None of us go to games, or watch football to be preached at by the likes of you. Protest on your own time. When you hit the field, just shut up and play. read more

Video Podcast – Let me introduce a Real DREAMer

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I liked to introduce you all to man who long ago fell in love with America – the idea and ideals of our great nation.

His name is Jonathon Dunne and he is a foreigner, from Ireland. He’s also a man who has been trying to come here with the “dream” of becoming an American. But, surprise, surprise – he refuses to sneak into our country like so many millions have. He actually has principles and says he loves America too much to defile it in such a way.

I’ll tell you his story and more, as I discuss my favorite topic – illegal immigration. I think I kept it to one official melt-down this time. read more
