The Common Sense Show

independence day

The world is 30-60 days away from a potential Armageddon. With scheduled NATO war games to be held in countries like Moldova and Ukraine this summer, Putin’s hand is being forced. If Putin does not act and move against Ukraine, and he allows NATO to fortify his neighbors against a Russian invasion, Putin will lose his tactical advantage. If Putin hesitates, the world could retreat into a long cold war. A cold war would not produce the war of destruction needed for the banksters to comprise the New World Order from the ashes of destruction.

When asked to relate the results of the Constitutional Convention of 1789 to a citizen as he left Independence Hall, Benjamin Franklin is reported to have replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” As the annual Conservative Political Action Conference ended last weekend, one might reply similarly to an observer that the future of the GOP is bright, if we can keep it.

The Democrats’ War on the Two-Party System

March 4, 2014 2 comments

By Arnold Ahlert Tuesday, March 4, 2014

While conservatives are divided on the political path forward, Democrats are showing themselves to be united in a war against the Republican Party—with one-party rule for America as the endgame.

http://canadafreepress.com/images/uploads/ahlert030414.jpg

 

One need only look to the political priorities Democratic lawmakers have recently adopted to gauge this reality. Led by the Obama administration, a party hijacked by far-left radicals is determined to pass comprehensive immigration reform, prevent the passage of election integrity laws, and use the IRS as a billy club to suppress free speech.

I learned only yesterday that Shirley Temple, the iconic child actress, died earlier this week at age 85. Reports on her death were easy to miss. I went through my usual scan of various websites and saw nothing. I fortunately caught a buried “Shirley Temple, R.I.P.” by a writer at a political website.

It is looking more and more as if the Democratic candidate for President in 2016 will, indeed, be Hillary Clinton. Surprise, surprise!

The only thing I can see that MIGHT stop Hillary from running would be issues with her health.

Never mind Benghazi, the mainstream Media is already running interference for her on that and can be expected to smother any other scandal that may arise. Hillary will be, as was Obama, THEIR candidate and they will pull out all the stops to get her elected to the office of President.

Of course it’s too early to talk about 2016. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way …

The most interesting dynamic about the presidential race so far is that the Democrats are behaving like Republicans — and vice versa.

Since 1940, with the arguable exception of Barry Goldwater, Republicans have nominated the guy next in line. Thomas Dewey almost beat Wendell Willkie for the nomination in 1940, so in 1944 — and 1948 — it was his turn.

Dwight Eisenhower, whom both parties wanted as their nominee, was a special case, given that whole invading-Europe-and-defeating-Hitler thing.

The Daily Bell – Conservatism Is Not Freedom… “Reagan’s true legacy: The Tea Party … Tea Party Challenging the status quo is the correct condition of American conservatism. At the end of the American Revolution…”

February 7, 2014 2 comments

By Staff Report – February 07, 2014

Reagan’s true legacy: The Tea Party … Tea Party Challenging the status quo is the correct condition of American conservatism.

At the end of the American Revolution, Benjamin Rush, who had signed the Declaration of Independence, vowed that though the war with Great Britain was over, the Revolution would go on.

The stirrings of original American conservatism were found in such sentiments. For the proper state of American conservatism — from Thomas Paine to Thomas Jefferson to Abraham Lincoln — is to be in a perpetual struggle for intellectual revolution. Ronald Reagan, whose 103rd birthday would have been Thursday, exemplified this. No surprise the Gipper regularly quoted all three men.

It is is political theater at its most frantic: the State of the Union address – SOTU in popular parlance – may now stand for “so too” much.

Obama\’s Influence Has Cast A Spirit Of Darkness Over America

One of the greatest thing any elected president brings to the nation is influence. More than laws passed or mandates set, a president sets the mood, orchestrates the tone for the period in which they govern.

Last week, Judge Edward Korman—a Reagan appointee to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York—confirmed that federal authorities can search the electronic devices of any American within 100 miles of any border without the need to obtain a warrant.

The Abidor et al v. Napolitano et al case, which Judge Korman just dismissed in favor of the government, focused upon warrantless searches of laptops without suspicion at the border. In this case, an American student was stopped at the border after traveling to several Middle Eastern countries and was forced to unlock/surrender his laptop computer. Despite the fact that nothing illegal was found on the computer, it still took nearly two weeks for Abidor to recover his laptop (which held the only copy of his thesis paper).

… There are a number of differences between conservatives operating in the William F. Buckley Jr./Ronald Reagan tradition and neoconservatives operating in the Irving Kristol/George W. Bush tradition. Here are three, and I’ll use Kristol’s own words to explain it.*

Neoconservatives believe the GOP should be converted to embrace a “modern democracy,” aka a welfare state in the mold of FDR and the Great Society. Neoconservatives don’t want to disassemble the federal government in order to rebalance divided powers between federal, state, and local governments; they just think they can pilot Leviathan better than the Democrats.

He also said that the beauty of the retention of powers by the states is that they are likely to exercise those powers differently and become laboratories of democracy — hence, Reagan’s famous quip that one of the benefits of living in the U.S. is federalism, because “you can vote with your feet.”

(CNN) — The idea that Soviet fighter jets would shoot down a Boeing 747 airliner seems shockingly unbelievable. Two-hundred sixty-nine innocent people died in a largely forgotten Cold War attack that took place exactly 30 years ago this weekend.

On a sultry August night in 1983 at New York’s JFK airport, Alice Ephraimson-Abt, a brilliant, 23-year-old, blue-eyed blonde, was about to board Korean Air Lines Flight 007 for Seoul, South Korea, halfway around the world. For one last time, she held her father, New Jersey businessman Hans Ephraimson-Abt, before saying goodbye. “There were hugs and I-love-yous,” her father, now 91, told CNN.

Sadly, many people today gain their knowledge through tv, movies, and the internet. True education has been replaced with indoctrination. The result is an ignorant public who then takes as gospel by what they see on the silver screen. Progressives know most people will never crack open a history text or read a biography, but they do know that people will take to heart the lies fed to them in the movies.

The American government conspires to kill its own president and to oppress those not in power. Most young people think that they saw the truth when they watched Oliver Stone‘s JFK. You can show them facts and figures showing how the movie was almost pure fantasy, but that makes no impact on their reasoning. Hollywood works overtime (probably with union breaks) to make strong Presidents weak in the eyes of the public and anti-American terrorists are really freedom fighters.

Neither the GOP old guard nor the rowdy libertarians ever quite bought that argument.

 

They both lay claim to the same conservative economic philosophy. But libertarians are more isolationist and antiwar than Republican orthodoxy allows on foreign policy and more permissive on social issues.

 

 

 

 

Still, in the nearly four decades since Reagan made those comments, the two have managed — at least most of the time — to maintain an uneasy marriage of expedience.

Jane Fonda´s turn as Nancy Reagan has outraged fans of the former first lady but the actress says “The Gipper´s” wife is happy she landed the role. “I don´t think that whatever differences there might be in our politics really matters you know,” says the actress in a new clip promoting the film ´The Butler´ which follows the life of a White House worker who served eight presidents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A vocal liberal, Fonda sparked outraged in the 1970´s when she toured North Vietnam, earning the moniker “Hanoi Jane” and critics blasted her casting as Nancy Reagan when it was announced

“I thought it would be fun to play her,” says Jane Fonda of her turn as Nancy Reagan in Lee Daniels’ The Butler, glimpsed in a new clip from the Weinstein Co. pic. The casting sparked plenty of controversy last year when it was first announced. But “I happen to know that she’s not unhappy that I’m playing her,” says Fonda.

…..Sooner or later, it will have to be the American people themselves that decide to put a stop to this out-of-control government arrogance. Perhaps the sentiments of the late Lyn Nofziger will be helpful at this point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will recall that Mr. Nofziger served as press secretary in Ronald Reagan’s administration as Governor of California and as a White House advisor during the Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan presidencies. Shortly before he passed away, he composed a short treatise entitled “These Things I Believe.” Here it is:

“That government should butt out. That freedom is our most precious commodity and if we are not eternally vigilant, government will take it all away. That individual freedom demands individual responsibility.

 

 

 

 

That government is not a necessary good but an unavoidable evil. That the executive branch has grown too strong, the judicial branch too arrogant and the legislative branch too stupid. That political parties have become close to meaningless. That government should work to insure the rights of the individual, not plot to take them away. That government should provide for the national defense and work to insure domestic tranquility. That foreign trade should be fair rather than free.

Don’t Say We Weren’t Warned
By a very great man, in 1984, under the dictator Reagan. Article by Mac

 

*****

 

Back in 1984, well before most Americans had ever heard of mobile phones or used a computer, the Federal government was hard at work mining whatever data they could get their hands on.

 

President Reagan was in office and given his staunch stance on limited government no one could possibly have suspected that he, of all people, would be the Commander in Chief presiding over a fledgling surveillance state.

 

Despite the ignorance of our populace and attempts to keep the American people in the dark, one lone wolf on the floor of the Congress had the prescient insight to understand what was really going on… and where it would one day lead.

 

He’s one of the original conspiracy theorists… referred to by many is a quack or a nut for his non-mainstream views of government and his constant warnings of tyranny on our doorstep.

……By the next morning, Ronald Reagan, with the cooperation of co-conspirator, Secretary of State, George Schultz, issued a statement to the American people that was a bald faced lie:

 

President Reagan, demanding a “full and immediate explanation,” Thursday assailed the Soviet attack on a Korean airliner that killed 269 people as a “horrifying act of violence” and dispatched sophisticated AWACS surveillance aircraft to search for the wreckage.” Rocky Mountain News, September 2, 1983.

 

 

 

George Schultz is Rudy Julie-Annie’s head capo for his foreign policy team. George Schultz belongs to the Council on Foreign Relations, a treasonous organization running America’s foreign policy.

 

How do I know Reagan lied? Because for one thing, the South Korean government received confirmation directly from the CIA that the plane had landed. Former U.S. Senator Jesse Helms continued the cover up, but he knew the truth:”One memo that was unearthed reads: Sen. Jesse Helms to Boris Yeltsin – Dec. 10, 1991:

A Duty to Disobey All Unlawful Orders

DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL LAW

 

 

 

 

 

As the United States government under George Bush gets closer to attacking the people of Iraq, there are several things that the men and women of the U.S. armed forces need to know and bear in mind as they are given orders from the Bush administration. This information is provided for the use of the members of the armed forces, their families, friends and supporters, and all who are concerned about the current direction of U.S. policy toward Iraq.

 

The military oath taken at the time of induction reads:

 

“I,____________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to the regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God”

We called him DUKE, and he was every bit the giant off screen he was on.

 

Everything about him-his stature, his style, his convictions-conveyed enduring strength, and no one who observed his struggle in those final days could doubt that strength was real.

 

 

 

 

Yet there was more. To my wife, Nancy, “Duke Wayne was the most gentle, tender person I ever knew.”In 1960, as president of the Screen Actors’ Guild, I was deeply embroiled in a bitter labor dispute between the Guild and the motion picture industry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we called a strike, the film industry unleashed a series of stinging personal attacks on me – criticism my wife found difficult to take.At 7:30 one morning the phone rang and Nancy heard Duke’s booming voice: “I’ve been readin’ what these damn columnists are saying about Ron. He can take care of himself, but I’ve been worrying about how all this is affecting you.”

It raised eyebrows back in 1981 when new President Ronald Reagan began returning the military salutes of the servicemen standing guard when he’d disembark from Air Force One or from Marine 1, the helicopter that would deliver him to the White House lawn.

Barack Obamabelieve Obama really is – a supreme caliph-in-waiting.

 

 

Haven’t we blindly spent trillions in American treasure and technology and thousands of American lives and wounded to see every country we supposedly are freeing from despots end up with Sharia law in their constitutions?

The Muslim Brotherhood are persecuting, murdering and forcing out Christians wherever they gain control. They are harassing and killing Buddhists and Hindus. How dumb can we get? Don’t we have the most successful triune philosophy of government in history in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights? Why sacrifice it and ourselves to impose the most despotic theocracy in all history? Note to ACLU: You want separation of church and state? Hello!

Members of tea party claim the movement springs from and promotes basic American conservative principles such as limited government and fiscal responsibility.

But new research by University of Washington political scientist Christopher Parker argues that the tea party ideology owes more to the paranoid politics associated with the John Birch Society — and even the infamous Ku Klux Klan — than to traditional American conservatism.

Ah yes, “the older I get, the better I was” syndrome!

Again and again the hue and cry goes out to “Restore America”!

But was America really something of our ideals rather than the reality that was really out there?

For instance, did our founding fathers seek “liberty and freedom” for all mem and not just the elite? Remember that the first Con-Con was to just update our first constitution, The Articles of Confederation, not to do away with the first constitution altogether. (Is “We The people” really just the signers of the preamble to our present constitution, rather than…”Joe SixPack,” for instance?)

Texas Republican Congressman Kevin Brady asked during the IRS hearings last week: “Is this still America?”

Good Question. It is a question we have asked with great frequency for a number of years now.

As much as I despise having to say it, we are witnessing an America in decline today. We can sugar-coat it, we can parse it, we can ignore it, all at our peril.

To fix it, we must face it. And it is a painful thing to look, objectively, at our country today.

For so many of you who have been born and have attained maturity in America since the 1950s, I can understand your wondering what I’m prattling on about.

See, you have never experienced a free America. You have never experienced that “shining city on a hill” as Ronald Reagan so loved to describe America. Reagan knew THAT America. He had experienced that America. Many of America’s so-called senior citizens living today also remember that America. I do.

John F. Kennedy

Cover of John F. Kennedy

Looking back at the America I was born into before the Second World War—I grew up in a land with unlimited horizons. It was a “can do” country. It was a land where citizens were not afraid—nor ashamed—to love their country and to defend her. It was a land where declaring oneself a patriot did not make one an enemy of the state.

Unlike today’s America, my America was a land unafraid—period.

Why was America unafraid? It was not arrogance. It was, in fact, a solid belief that America was under the protection of God.
