WND Exclusive – Elizabeth ‘Woodrow’ Warren: The Scariest Candidate

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Woodrow Wilson

Elizabeth Warren

Of the top tier of candidates vying for the Democratic nomination for president, one may be scarier than the others, and it may not be who you think.

A month or so ago, I wrote that Kamala Harris was rapidly gaining ground, and I thought that she, as a black women, might pose the most problems for Trump.

This may still be true, but it’s not the purpose of this article.

Rather than just speculating on just who might win, I wanted to take a look at who may be the worst, most dangerous choice as president from the left – not who can likely beat Trump, just who would be the most damaging, should he or she win. read more

Don’t Cave on the Constitution

The beginning of the end of the Second Amendment

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

I agree with the President on most things, but I can’t on this.

We’ve been hearing, ad nauseum, that polling suggests that the public supports universal background checks and greater gun restrictions. And we’ve not only been hearing this from democrats, but also from Republicans.

So now I guess we’ve given up on protection and defense of the Constitution and will be governed by the whims of the people and politicians?

It reminds of what the father of the modern progressive movement, president Woodrow Wilson said.  (I hate that guy!) “The Constitution was founded on the law of gravitation. The government was to exist and move by virtue of the efficacy of ‘checks and balances.’ The trouble with the theory is that government is not a machine, but a living thing. No living thing can have its organs offset against each other, as checks, and live.”

This was the beginning of the “living, breathing,” Constitution. That musty old document was fine for its day, but it should not have been built on immovable bedrock. Instead it should be built on sand so that it may move and shift with the changing times.

President Trump and the Republicans have expressed openness to a federal red flag law and for “meaningful” background checks. read more

Democrats and the Free Press

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The main stream media and the democrats claim, like Joe Biden did recently, that president Trump is an “existential” threat to this nation. They claim that Trump is an enemy to a free press in this country and wants to censor them and shut them down.

However, not once as I recall, has the president Trump ever seriously called for the shuttering of any leftist news outlets, or silencing any opposing voices. Frankly, why would he. They are doing such a bang up job of it themselves.

Just look at the tanking ratings for CNN and the like. Every time I tune in to that network, I wonder why advertisers still run commercials there. Who’s going to see them? Every month there are new reports of CNN losing more market share.

Yet still they won’t change their narrative.

Unfortunately for the left, the facts, and history, is and has always been on our side. And it’s a funny thing about facts. There is no denying them. Oh sure, they can try to spin them, but the facts are and every will be what they are. read more

A Unique Look at Woodrow Wilson

Stu Burguiere of the Blaze and side kick of Glenn Beck present a nice little history lesson regarding one of the left’s heroes, progressive icon and 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson. I guess we really weren’t any smarter back then, for until Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton – there has never been a more evil Chief Executive (save for FDR).

Enjoy the history lesson: read more

This is Progress

By: The Common Constitutionalist

If you are a regular reader (even if you’re not), you may have seen me use the the word “Progressive” (in political terms) as a synonym for liberal, which it is.

In fact, during the early Twentieth century, as the term “Progressive” developed a negative connotation, they simply changed it to liberal. We now see, with a negative reaction to the term “Liberal”, they are reverting back to progressive. Neat trick. Interestingly, the founders considered themselves “Classical Liberals”.

After speaking to a few people, I realize I have never really explained “progressive” properly – what it means & why political progressives think the way they do.

To do this I thought it might be instructive to go back and look at one of the founders of the American progressive movement, president Woodrow Wilson, using excerpts from one of his more famous speeches, What is Progress?“.

In his speech Wilson said, “We think of the future, not the past, as the more glorious time in comparison with which the present is nothing. Progress, development-those are modern words. The modern idea is to leave the past and press onward to something new.”

So far, progress sounds great, or does it? Does progress really mean to leave the past, forget the past, and press on to something new and no doubt glorious?

One could argue, unsuccessfully, that this is not what he meant. In his speech, he will reveal, this is indeed what he meant.

Wilson continues, “What attitude shall progressives take toward the existing order, toward those institutions of conservatism, the Constitution, the laws, and the courts?… Are those thoughtful men who fear that we are now about to disturb the ancient foundations of our institutions justified in their fear?”

You’re darn right they were justified in their fear!

You will notice how Wilson is trying to separate himself and progressives from the founders by describing the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence as old dusty, ancient foundations, as if they were crafted on stone tablets thousands of years ago. read more

The Nation’s a Mess – Who’s at Fault?

By: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s funny that for over a century it’s actually a progressive Republican who has led us to elect an even worse Democrat. It’s almost as if it’s the fault of the Republicans that the country is in such poor shape. It’s uncanny how often this has happened.

Just look at the time line and we can plainly this phenomenon. Progressive republican George W Bush led to radical Barack Milhous Obama. Nixon and Ford led to the peanut farming disaster Yimmy Carter. Herbert Hoover led to Franklin Roosevelt and William Howard Taft led to the ruinous regime of Woodrow Wilson, who is still this country’s worst president.

Many believe that Obama has claimed that title but I’m not so sure. I think the tag team of destruction of Taft and Wilson still retain the belt. Obama does come in a close second.

Here is my reasoning.

Let’s look at this in medical or clinical terms. Say a new disease breaks out – Ebola perhaps. As many work on a treatment, many others search for not just a treatment, but a cure – a vaccine perhaps – a way to reverse the affliction.

Now I’m neither a doctor nor a scientist, but I understand that quickest way to finding a cure for a disease is to find where it originated – to find patient number one. Isn’t that what the movie, television and novel medical investigators always say? It must then be true, right?

Well, in this case, it probably is true. read more

History Doesn’t Support Cuomo

by: the Common Constitutionalist 

The political world is still buzzing over the incendiary comments New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made regarding his views on Republicans, more specifically, conservatives.

 

Even dyed in the wool New Yorker Sean Hannity said he would make plans to leave his state. Something I thought he would never do or even say. Good for Sean.

 

Now I don’t know if Cuomo really believes the things he said or whether he simply sees the final transformation of the Democratic Party into the Communist Party via New York City Mayor DeBlasio? It may be a calculated attempt to shift way left. Who knows – who cares. He said what he said and there’s really no walking it back.

 

It’s funny though, with all the problems plaguing his state and the country, he and the rest of the leftists insist on blaming conservatives for ruining the country. We are why the country is falling apart. It certainly couldn’t be the combination of almost 200 years of rotten, fascist, racist Democrat policies. Whatever do I mean, you ask?

 

I mean just this. Look back in history and be reminded that virtually every bad policy, every ruinous decision, every unconstitutional law or mandate was the handiwork of a Democrat. read more

“Woodrow Wilson and the Rejection of the Founders’ Principles”

by: Ronald J. Pestritto,  Associate Professor of Politics, and Dean of the Graduate School of Statesmanship at Hillsdale College

Overview

Progressives believe that America needs to move beyond the principles of the Founding.  Woodrow Wilson—who served as president of Princeton University, governor of New Jersey, and as America’s 28th president—was one of the earliest Progressive thinkers.  His critique of the Founding—namely, his rejection of the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution’s system of the separation of powers—is one of the most articulate expressions of the Progressive movement’s core beliefs.

 

 

An American Dictator (Part Deux)

 by: the Common Constitutionalist

As I stated in Part One, Barack Obama is not our first progressive president to fancy himself a supreme ruler.

It remains to be seen if Obama will supplant all predecessors as America’s worst president. He has the potential, but I believe Woodrow Wilson is still king of American fascist presidents.

During World War I Woodrow Wilson created the “Committee on Public Information (CPI)”. The wicked progressive and Wilson advisor Edward Bernays described the CPI as the “engineering of consent” and “the conscious manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses.” Wilson, in the CPI, had created America’s first official government propaganda department, designed solely to control the population and manipulate their behavior.

One example of manipulation the CPI produced was a World War I liberty Bond poster that read: “I am Public Opinion. All men fear me! If you have money to buy and do not buy, I will make this No Man’s Land for you!” Now that’s not at all creepy, is it?

The CPI trained a group of almost 100,000 men to give four-minute propaganda speeches to any audience that would listen. They extolled the greatness of government and portrayed Woodrow Wilson as a larger-than-life leader. They also produced and released many government propaganda films. read more

An American Dictator (Part One)

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I was recently speaking to a friend and fellow conservative. The conversation invariably turned to a discussion of “The One”. My friend was complaining of what a fascist dictator Obama is becoming. I had to laugh knowing that Obama has always been a fascist and it’s just becoming more obvious now. He spoke as if this were the first time in American history we have a president that fancies himself a dictator or King.

I gave my friend a quick synopsis of King Andrew Jackson. You may link to it here.  It was as if he hadn’t heard this, as if it were news to him, and he, I regard as someone who is a fairly well-rounded and knowledgeable conservative. He did understand, and I agree, that fascism is a product of the left, not the right as most are taught. The left, the progressives, like fascists are enamored with, and in fact worship the power and expansion of the state and absolute control of it.

There have actually been several “want to be” fascist leaders in America before the present. As bad as they all were, in my opinion, there has been none worse than president Thomas Woodrow Wilson, our 28th.

Historian Walter McDougall wrote that Wilson, “loved, craved and in a sense, glorified power”. read more
