COMMON SENSE: Amazingly, people seem to think Hillary Clinton’s election to the White House is inevitable, when the exact opposite is true. In reality, she is the weakest candidate running . . . by far.
 
Let me explain. In states that normally vote for a Democrat in the General Election, she is being trounced by The Bern—a clueless Socialist, but also a decent man. When I say trounced, I mean decimated. In last week’s primaries, for example, The Bern received more than 70% of the vote.
 
Where Hillary is supposed to be strong, as the Democratic nominee, she is weak, but she does have a sizable lead in the delegates. The reason for this, other than the corruptible Super Delegates, is Hillary has soundly defeated The Bern in SC and other Southern states. Being first, SC was Hillary’s “Firewall,” according to the pundits. She beat The Bern handily, but in a General Election, what do you think Hillary’s chances are of winning SC? Let me tell you: Zero!
 
Regardless of who the Republicans choose, their candidate will beat Hillary in SC. The same is true in every other Southern state where Hillary won in the Democratic Primary. In the General Election, she will not win any of these states, but none of the commentators ever mention this, do they?
 
In the states she needs to win—the Blue States—she is losing big time, and in the states she has no chance of taking from the Republicans—the Red States—she seems strong, but it’s only because of the black community, which isn’t large enough to carry any Southern State.
 
This alone shows you exactly how vulnerable she is, especially if the Republicans ever get their act together, which they may not.
 
One more thing: We still have not heard what the FBI has to say about her criminal behavior. When we do, the few people who mistakenly believe she is trustworthy and honest may change their minds.

COMMON SENSE: Make no mistake about it—the most important issue of the 2016 Presidential Election is still out there. No, it’s not the War on Terror, unsustainable debt, or securing the border from illegal immigration. It concerns the Rule of Law. Will we be a nation where nobody is above the law, which has always been our tradition, or will some people be treated differently, remaining above the law?
 
Currently, there are 150 FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton’s unethical, corrupt, and illegal activities, while she served as Secretary of State. When they present their findings to Loretta Lynch, Obama’s Attorney General, and ask her to present them to a grand jury, the moment of truth will arrive.
 
At that point, the issue will become a political question. This is when President Obama will either rise to the occasion and do the right thing, or when he will refuse to abide by the Constitution and not allow the FBI’s findings to move forward.
 
At that precise moment, we will know where we are as a nation. Does the Rule of Law still apply to everyone or doesn’t it? Millions cynically believe Obama will disregard his Constitutional responsibilities, while millions more are so obtuse about what is happening, they will be clueless about the seriousness of the matter.
 
I hope Obama directs Loretta Lynch to allow the legal course to move forward. He could just stay out of it all together, but I have serious doubts that he could do that. If he refuses to allow justice to take its course, we will have a Constitutional crisis as serious as during the Watergate scandal. Perhaps Obama knows this and doesn’t want his legacy to be stained by such dishonor. Perhaps he doesn’t care. Only time will tell. Until that moment arrives, we will all remain in limbo about the defining issue in the next election.

COMMON SENSE: President Obama doing the wave at a baseball game, sitting beside a ruthless dictator, conjures images of Nero fiddling while Rome burned. This isn’t the first time Obama has been in the wrong place at the wrong time, when terrorism has reared its ugly head, nor is it the worst. Playing golf ten minutes after speaking about Foley’s decapitation may have been more inappropriate, or perhaps it was Obama partying with Beyonce in Vegas the night after the Benghazi attack.
Such images of Obama being asleep at the wheel tell us a great deal about the man. If these attacks had been perpetrated upon Muslims by Christians or Jews, do you believe Obama would be so cavalier about them? I do not. His outrage would be palpable.
The reason Obama doesn’t take these assaults, and others like them, seriously is they do not fit into his narrative of reality. Consequently, he denies the gravity of what is happening by doing what he does best, having fun. At this point in his administration, being a lame-duck, he is more disengaged than ever, choosing to double-down on his core beliefs that Islam is a religion of Peace and that there is no reason to keep GITMO open. After all, we have won the War on Terror—at least according to the American version of Nero.

COMMON SENSE: Although nearly everybody predicted Ted Cruz and Donald Trump would be among first candidates to drop out of the Republican race, they are the last two standing. (Mathematically, Kasich cannot win). There is a reason for this. Both have tapped into the deepest desires of Conservative, which isn’t fear but righteous indignation. That’s the good news.
 
Here’s the bad news. Yesterday, ISIS attacked Brussels—just like it attacked Paris four months ago. Watching this on TV, Americans are justifiably concerned. We need leadership, but we’re not getting it. Obama hasn’t provided any, and Hillary is incapable of doing so. This has left a vacuum both of the Republican contenders should have addressed.
 
Instead of being Presidential, however, the two of them are Tweeting nonsense about each other’s wives. How juvenile. How inappropriate. And how trivial. If either of you intend to be our Commander-in-Chief, act the part. Grow up! Man up! And take charge.

COMMON SENSE: Despite the dramatic upsurge in power by ISIS, resulting in worldwide carnage, the Obama administration fully intends to empty GITMO—just to fulfill a campaign pledge to Hollywood’s Radical Left. This is not only foolhardy, but it also provides a clue as to why no Progressive can adequately lead the fight against global terrorism. Let me explain why.
 
Progressives—like Obama, Hillary, Kerry, and The Bern—do not see the world as it really is. They see it through the prism of their flawed ideology. Because Progressives are non-theistic, even if they have rudimentary god-consciousness, they cannot fathom how Islamic Jihadists think, which is in chiliastic terms. Radical Muslims believe in their 12th Caliphate as strongly as evangelicals believe in the Second Coming of Christ. Because the Progressive worldview is materialistic and not spiritual, however, they can’t understand those who have an entirely different perspective.
 
Consequently, the only answers Progressives have for the problem are based on what they know. Progressives believe Muslim unrest is caused by poverty and hopelessness. It’s because of global warming. Muslims don’t want to live in the hot desert. It’s because their population is exploding, and they need more room to grow and expand. They need to know we want to help them.
 
None of these answers are accurate. They have nothing to do with global Jihadism. Muslims are terrorists because it’s what Allah has commanded them to do—plain and simple. They are afraid of hell more than they are afraid of death, and your mortal enemies are Israel and the Great Satan—the USA.
 
If your worldview is Judeo-Christian, you may not like the Islamic perspective but you can understand it. If you are a Progressive, you cannot. For a Progressive, it simply doesn’t compute. Unfortunately, we are being led by Progressives who are incapable of understanding the seminal problem. Thus, they are incapable of defending us adequately against Radical Islam.
 
Hillary has proven she doesn’t have a clue about what motivates Muslims. As Secretary of State, she was a disaster. If she becomes Commander-in-Chief, ISIS will continue to grow, despite the Leftist rhetoric that consistently denies that it is. To defeat ISIS, you not only have to identify it correctly, but you also have to understand what motivates it to be convinced that wanton terrorism is a good thing. Why so few understand how simple this is is beyond me, but they don’t.

11149533_10153186046555748_2424552664195312802_n-1COMMON SENSE: Concerning terrorism, there is a fundamental difference between the way the Left sees it and how the Right does. Progressives—like Obama, Hillary, Kerry, and The Bern—believe we have caused Islamic people to hate us, which makes the lion’s share of the problem ours. So, what we need to do is make the lives of Radical Jihadists better. If we do, in time, the problem will solve itself. Be nice to them and they will eventually be nice to us. Besides, there are only a few who have been radicalized. The rest of Islam is peaceful.

Conservatives—like Trump, Cruz, Netanyahu, and others—believe that the problem originates with the way Islam views the world. Those who take the Koran literally—the Radical Jihadists—believe the USA is filled with infidels, making us the Great Satan. Therefore, by nature we are Evil and deserve to be the object of terror. Jews are even worse than us and need to be exterminated.

Conservatives believe the problem originates with the belief system of Muslims. Therefore, for a Conservative to make policies based on being nice to Jihadists would be viewed as cowardly, capitulating to Evil. The way to defeat Islamic terrorism is to identify it, call it what it is, and make policies aimed at defeating them militarily, sending them back to the Stone Age.

In this upcoming election, the choice Americans make will go a long way toward either solving the problem or making it worse. If you believe Muslims hate us for good reason, vote for Hillary or The Bern. They will govern in a similar way to Obama, which is to not deal with the problem effectively. If you think Radical Islam is Evil and needs to be defeated decisively, vote for Trump or Cruz. They will not coddle terrorists, and they recognize there is a fundamental problem with the belief system of Muslims.

The media and our feckless national leaders want to make this issue more complex than it is. It’s as simple as what I have just described. There’s a reason why they want to keep you confused. If we accept their version of reality as accurate, we will continue to be more passive than aggressive in confronting the problem, and that’s what they want. After all, America is responsible for causing all of the problems in the world. Everybody, other than ignorant Conservatives, realizes that.

puritan
COMMON SENSE: From our earliest settlers—the Pilgrims and the Puritans—we have had two simultaneous traditions present in American society. The Pilgrims wanted nothing to do with the world, especially politics, believing that it was morally wrong to get involved. “Why polish brass on a sinking ship,” was what they believed.
The Puritans were the exact opposite. They wanted to fix what was wrong and worked diligently to create a model for the Motherland, England, to emulate.
Not surprisingly, the Puritans and Pilgrims did not get along. Eventually, the Pilgrims were driven out. They traveled south. Led by Roger Williams, they established Providence and created their own university to teach the “true religion”—Brown University. The Puritans remained in Boston, establishing Harvard, followed by Yale a few years later.
Throughout the centuries, both traditions have been present. The separatist tradition has been strongest among the independent Baptist churches—not to be confused with the Southern Baptists. Traditionally, Separatist Baptists have refrained from getting involved with politics, which they consider beneath them. They rarely voted until 1980, when Jerry Falwell led the movement—The Moral Majority—to get them involved, and he was quite successful.
Nevertheless, the natural inclination of believers like these is to refrain from getting “involved with the world.” So, it should be no surprise that millions of God-fearing people refuse to do what those of us from the Puritan tradition believe is our God-mandated responsibility—voting in elections. We view their position as ridiculous, saying they are so spiritually-minded that they are no earthly good, while they view us as stained by the world. It’s been this way since the 1620s, and it’s not about to change. So, my advise is to be patient with people who disagree with you because you can’t change them.
