As students protest, they are missing out on the history lessons they need

It is certainly fine that children are protesting guns and mourning the loss of students.  But it is time for parents, teachers, the media, politicians, and other adults to teach some facts about history and why we have a Second Amendment so that these students know what they are protesting about.

Does taking away guns really make people safer?  The North Korean people are not safe because the tyrants don’t allow ordinary citizens to have guns.  Disarmed, they are in danger every day.

MORE THAN HALF OF MILLENNIALS GOING THROUGH ‘QUARTER-LIFE CRISIS’, RESEARCH FINDS

Financial difficulties, employment, and rocky relationships are all to blame.

Six in 10 millennials claim to be going through a “quarter-life” crisis, according to a new study.

Many of us are familiar with the trope of a mid-life crisis – a person in middle age who is feeling stuck in a rut, and who reacts by indulging in erratic behavior like making spontaneous career decisions or buying a motorbike.

Parkland Student Takes Call From White House, Jaw Drops at What Comes Next

David Hogg has become the media darling of the Parkland shooting. And, while we don’t take any pleasure in bashing survivors of mass shootings, Hogg has since transformed himself into a political figure in his own right — one more than willing to bash anyone who disagrees with his view of the world and of gun control.

Soros is Busy Buying District Attorneys

Leftist kingmaker George Soros appears to understand how America really works.

While we are all wrapped up in the next midterm political election, Soros is doing something a bit different. And he’s been doing it for a few years now, and having some success.

Soros figured out who really runs the nation – who really wields the power – and it’s not the political class. In fact, it’s what we conservatives have warned of for as long as I can remember.

It’s the judicial class who runs America – from the black-robed oligarchs at the Supreme Court all the way down to local judges and prosecutors.

And that is where Soros is concentrating his fire, as it were. He’s pouring money into otherwise inconsequential State and local District Attorney races.

Soros understands that the real power is in the judiciary. Judges are more often than not appointed, so the next best thing is the elected District Attorney. They can sue most everyone, on behalf of illegal aliens, or the green lobby, or whomever, as well as gum up the legislature.

Long ago the judicial class appointed itself as the sole arbiter of what is proper in America. If for whatever reason, they disagree with a clear legislative matter, they deem it unconstitutional, and we lemmings are to just accept it.

In 2016, the Daily Signal wrote, “As part of his quest to overhaul the American justice system, liberal billionaire George Soros is targeting local prosecutor races like the one in Harris County, a large jurisdiction that includes the city of Houston.”

It looked like Soros had backed the wrong horse, as his guy, Morris Overstreet was defeated in the Democrat primary, despite $100,000 in Soros money. After Overstreet’s opponent, Kim Ogg, had won the primary, she “condemned the Soros donation to Overstreet intended to defeat her, calling it ‘a last-minute money dump to try to buy the nomination.’” She was right to do so.

But she wasn’t so upset as to refuse Soros’s dirty money in order for her to buy the general election. Ogg was elected Harris County district attorney “after going on to beat the Republican incumbent, Devon Anderson. She won the general election with the aid of about $878,000 from the Soros-funded Texas Safety and Justice PAC.”

Now it’s 2018 and Soros has his sights set on another Texas District Attorney race. Soros invested almost $1 million in the Bexar County Texas DA race. His puppet, Joe Gonzales, “upset incumbent Bexar County DA Nico LaHood in the Democratic primary Tuesday. If he wins, Gonzales will join at least 11 progressive lawyers since 2015 who have won district attorney’s seats thanks to massive financial donations from Soros.”

Soros spent $958,000 through the super PAC, Texas Justice & Public Safety supporting Gonzales. And that was just the Democrat primary. Wow – what a surprise – the same PAC as supported Ogg in 2016. Well – almost. Last time it was Texas Safety and Justice. Think maybe it’s just a typo? Think again.

“Soros has the routine down. He uses powerhouse Democratic law firm Perkins Coie to set up a super PAC named some variant of “Justice & Public Safety.” The super PAC will surface late in a DA race, using the kind of capital typically reserved for a national political race to fund a series of attack ads benefitting Soros’s preferred candidate, who wins almost every time.”

And the law firm, Perkins Coie, should also ring a bell. It’s the same clique of attorneys contracted to hire the firm that created the phony Trump dirty dossier. Small world isn’t it. Not really. Dig deep enough and you will always find Soros, the Godfather of political corruption’s name attached to these transactions.

The Common Constitutionalist

The Common Constitutionalist

Brent Smith, aka The Common Constitutionalist, is a constitutional conservative who advocates for first principles – the founders’ original intent and enemy of progressives.

Andrew Jackson Portrait Now Hangs in Oval Office. Here’s What He Said About Draining the Swamp.

There is an old quotation that history doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes.

For Americans, who have a unique and exceptional heritage, it is important that we remember the lessons of our past and engage with the first principles and ideas that have come before us.

Just prior to his inauguration, President Donald Trump compared his movement to the one that brought Andrew Jackson to the White House in the early 19th century. And on Wednesday, he followed up on this commitment and will reportedly hang a portrait of Jackson in the Oval Office.

“There hasn’t been anything like this since Andrew Jackson,” Trump said of his comparison to the seventh president. “Andrew Jackson? What year was Andrew Jackson? That was a long time ago.”

The Pied Pipers of the Millennials

June 12, 2017

By Christopher Chantrill

 

A couple of weeks ago, John O’Sullivan was confidently writing about the British Conservative Party finally getting it all together, and uniting the three strands of Toryism — the economic freedom and enterprise of Thatcher, the nationalism of Churchill and Disraeli, and the skepticism of Peel and Lord Salisbury — into a real political force at last. And I wrote approvingly of this prospect on my blog.

Well, so much for that. After the British General Election on June 8, we are being taught that Corbyn’s leftism is in the driver’s seat, powered by the enthusiasm of Millennials. Continue reading “The Pied Pipers of the Millennials”

When sizable portions of a people forget their history, they risk losing contact with their nation’s essence, what its best qualities are, and where it ought to be headed.  They may soon cease to inhabit an independent political entity. Continue reading “The Cost of Historical Amnesia in America”
