The Church Militant

The refrain that is heard from the right when they refer to liberal actors is “Shut up and Act.” The same goes for leftist musicians: “Shut up and Sing.” Don’t involve yourselves in matters you know little to nothing about. Leave the politics to politicians, and leave armed conflicts to the military.

Because one is popular, famous and has a large following doesn’t automatically make an actor or musician an authority on matters political or military. Save for a very few, history is not on their side. Not many have gone on to become great political or military leaders. read more

Will ISIS Use Dirty Bomb to Blackmail?

Who doesn’t love the current price of a gallon of gas? I was driving in to my office recently and noticed more than one fuel station posting gas at $1.55 per gallon. When George W. Bush first took office in 2001, the average price of a gallon was $1.55.

Remember back in 2012, during a debate with Mitt Romney Obama said: “When I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80, $1.86. Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse.” So what does it tell us about the present Obama economy that gas prices are now some 30 cents lower than 2009 and in free fall? Sure, it’s great for us consumers – we’re saving a fortune on gas and heating oil – but it’s not great for our nation or the world economy. read more

USA: TODAY’S WEIMAR REPUBLIC?

America is piling up debt like crazy. As of fiscal year 2013, our federal government was borrowing 46 cents of every dollar it spends, with seemingly no end in sight. Our national debt is almost $20 trillion, and unfunded liabilities are approaching a quarter of a quadrillion dollars. Unfortunately, or fortunately, there eventually will be an end. There has to be.

Article I, Section 10, of the Constitution: “No state shall emit bills of credit, make any thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts, coin money.” The Founding Fathers knew that irresponsible governments would print paper money, backed by nothing, overspend and devalue the currency, causing “inflation” and destroying the economy. But did we listen? Of course not.

In 1971, during the Nixon administration, we officially went off the gold standard and unpinned our paper money from anything of real or intrinsic value. George Santayana is quoted as saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Many question the brilliance of the founders who have warned us of virtually every major mistake our country has made, yet still we don’t heed them. read more

CRUZ: A PROFILE IN COURAGE

I’ve been a Ted Cruz guy from before day one – admiring him, Mike Lee and a few others for standing up to the Washington machine from the minute they showed up in D.C. No one in recent memory has had more of an impact on the Beltway cartel than he – and in such a short period of time.

Cruz told the people of Texas what he would do if elected, and enough of them liked and believed what he said. And unlike virtually every other politician, he has done what he promised – to fight the unconstitutionality of the federal government. This makes Cruz a public servant – not a politician. read more

Let’s Treat Government Like a Sporting Event

Can anyone honestly say that a President Trump would accept not pushing some agenda item he really wanted because it just happened to be unconstitutional?

No, of course not. He would charge his legal team, as Obama does, with finding other historic yet unconstitutional precedents and point to those as justification for his actions. Or like past presidents, just make it up or ignore the document completely. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive – So Obama Isn’t the Smartest Being Ever?

You probably heard former Defense Secretary Robert Gates say last Tuesday that “President Obama thinks he is smarter than his advisers and that he surrounds himself with people who will not question his views.”

As Bruce Willis said in the first “Die Hard” movie: “Welcome to the party, pal!” It’s nice to see others recognizing and admitting what we’ve known for almost a decade.

Yet the left, from day 1, has been propping Obama up as the smartest being alive, possessing talents mere mortals don’t possess. read more

This Muslim Defines Courage

The Common Constitutionalist is branching out. In addition to my daily blog and a number of sites I already contribute to, I’ve been asked to write an exclusive weekly commentary article for the popular national conservative website, World Net Daily. Naturally I accepted. I’d be a fool not to. I am joining the likes of Ted Nugent, Ann Coulter and Judge Andrew Napolitano.

Once a week I will provide a few paragraphs of my latest article and a link to the WND site.

Courage is defined as the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery. I would disagree, but only slightly. Courage can also be defined as acting bravely in the face of fear. One can be fearful, yet still act courageously. read more
