We have all heard it said. It is a common libertarian thought and since all conservatives/classic liberals have a libertarian streak, we have all thought it. Many of us have said it as well, I know that I have. I have said that “you can’t legislate morality.” That was the basis for my comments about same sex marriage – that the government has no business in the marriage business – that is for the church to manage – and it should only be the business of the government in a civil contract sense.

But it occurs to me that the absence of a willingness to create legislation regarding a moral position does present a significant problem.

When you look back at our founding, I think it is at least arguable that the Founders such as Jefferson and Adams DID intend for government, if perhaps not to directly legislate morality, at least to legislate to protect it. An oft cited quote of Adams about the Constitution is that it is only capable of governing a “…moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Jefferson acknowledged our Creator’s role in American public life by writing in the Declaration of Independence that we are “…to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them…”

Reasonable people may also disagree but one must acknowledge that Divine Law played a role at our founding, being both the asserted basis for King George III to rule over the British Kingdom AND the reason cited for man’s natural state of freedom in the nascent United States of America. As the individual threads are woven in to cloth, Divine Law was woven into the fabric of this country and became the basis for much of the initial views of morality in America.

There are reasons that history records laws that prohibited abortion and the recognition of homosexual unions. Prohibition of abortion was based on one of the Ten Commandments – “Thou shalt not kill.” Opposition to gay marriage is rooted in the Biblical construct that marriage is a union between one man, one woman in a covenant with God – furthermore, the natural necessity for this male/female pairing is procreation, something that is impossible in a same sex union.

Societies are fluid entities and culture changes over time – America was changed with a Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion and we have continued to change in our views regarding same sex marriage…but where does that lead? If the government has a duty to legislate morality, when is the appropriate time for it to step in?

I am vehemently against abortion and I simply don’t care about gay marriage – my issue with gay marriage is the expectation in the gay community that for straight people to tolerate it means that they must celebrate it, and I refuse to do that. For me the most frightening aspect of government excusing itself from the traditional role of protecting the founding tradition of Judeo-Christian morality is not abortion or gay marriage – it is the path that this moral recusal has put us on.

An example of the rationalization of immorality comes to us from a judge in Australia. This judge has said that incest and pedophilia may no longer be considered taboo – just as gay relationships are now more accepted than they were in the 1950s and 60s. There is an active movement in the US and the UK to “mainstream” the sexual fetish of pedophilia. Just this month at an academic conference at the University of Cambridge in England, a paper was presented that continued this shocking statement – “Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” said the presentation. “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.” Similarly in America, NAMBLA, the North American Man-Boy Love Association promotes the same idea -that there is nothing inherently unnatural or immoral about a sexual relationship between an adult male and an adolescent child.

Where do we draw the line? If governments do not have the authority to create legislative controls over abortion and homosexual unions, why would we expect them to be able to consider pedophilia a crime? Why would we be able to prevent any behavior that deviates from traditional moral codes? What about polygamy, incest, bestiality, prostitution or even euthanasia?

We should stop trying to fool ourselves – governments can and do legislate morality and furthermore, it is both expected and necessary to the maintenance of an ordered society. The question is not whether they can or should but what is the moral basis by which they do it. For the first two centuries of our country our recognized basis was the Christian Bible, now we have decided that following Divine Law is not only less than desirable, it is illegal (by virtue, not of a direct admonition in an of our founding documents but of a letter of Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists). We have lost this traditional anchor and now are drifting on a sea of societal fad and human whim.

I don’t know where this ends. Sooner or later the anchor must gain purchase on the sea floor and the ship of state will be yanked to a halt. In years past, the anchor chain made of Divine Law has held, it remains to see if one such chain made of man’s law will hold.

An analysis by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), a nonpartisan arm of Congress, shows that both sides in the debate over whether to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $9.00, $10.10, or even $15 an hour have relevant points to make. 

Advocates believe that the wage hike would lift nearly a million people out of poverty, increase productivity, reduce turnover and give those receiving the raise more money to spend, and that would translate to businesses recording higher sales, and an overall improvement in economic activity. 

A $10.10 minimum wage, the CBO says, means 900,000 fewer people in poverty, and job losses will comprise only 0.3 percent of jobs affected by the wage hike.

The hike would boost wages for most low-wage workers, as about 16.5 million workers who make less than $10.10 an hour would see higher earnings once the higher minimum is fully implemented, which Democrats in the House and Senate have been calling for. And then, those making slightly more than the new minimum wage may feel they need a raise too, and employers would be virtually compelled to give them one in what the CBO calls a "ripple effect." 

Let’s review: Advocates believe we should raise the minimum wage because the more low-wage workers make, the more they'll have to spend, and the better that will be for businesses selling products and services. People move out of poverty and spend more and consequently businesses prosper from greater sales. Our economic problems magically dissolve. Does it get any better than this?

Unfortunately for the advocates, good decision-making requires looking at all the factors, not just the ones that support a particular position.

Opponents point out that higher wages lead to higher prices, and lost jobs, and wages need to be related to the work involved and its value to the company, not artificially determined by Washington bureaucrats.

An essential factor that needs to be considered is what happens inside businesses when their labor costs increase? They must make adjustments in other expense areas, increase productivity or increase prices to maintain profitability and stay in business. 

The other side of the CBO job loss estimate is that while only 0.3 percent of minimum wage workers will lose their jobs with the proposed wage hike to $10.10 an hour, and that sounds like a small effect, the number of actual people comprising that 0.3 percent is 500,000. So 900,000 will be lifted out of poverty, but more than half that number will lose their jobs. Thus, the picture painted by the CBO is somewhat less rosy than the advocates believe.

A study for the National Center for Policy Analysis by Richard B. McKenzie, explains that there are other forms of compensation to consider, nonmonetary benefits that may be as much as 30 percent over and above wages of all workers, a substantial percentage of the total compensation employees receive. Faced with higher labor costs, employers may make adjustments to these nonmonetary benefits to balance things. These benefits include relaxed work demands, workplace atmosphere, schedule flexibility, job security, and hours of work. Employers may also have to cut jobs, curb summer hiring, opt not to replace workers who leave; lower their profitability and/or raise prices to customers. 

Despite what you may hear, read or think, most employers want the best employees they can get; the most productive, best trained, and most devoted workers they can find. They are willing to pay them to keep competitors from luring them away, however, there are financial limits to what businesses can pay without making other changes.

They may reduce jobs or cut worker hours, increase demands on existing employees and impose a stricter work atmosphere to increase productivity, replace workers with machines, or look for cheaper materials from overseas where labor costs are lower, affecting American suppliers.

The US economy is suffering, as evidenced by, among other indicators, the labor force participation rate, which shows that only 63.2 percent of Americans age 16 or older are participating in the labor force, the rate having fallen over the last several years to 1977 levels.

We need an atmosphere that encourages businesses to create jobs, not artificially raise the wages of the least skilled, least experienced people in the labor force, particularly when doing so will cost 500,000 jobs, and further depress the participation rate.

Among the many stunning failures of the Obama administration is its proclivity to pander to small constituencies to gain political support, all the while ignoring the broader problems facing the nation.

When an administration chooses to implement narrowly focused policies conceived for political gain, you get what the Obama administration has produced: an almost non-existent recovery from the recent recession, millions of Americans who can’t find a job, millions more who are too discouraged to keep looking and have dropped out of the labor force, and still millions more Americans on food stamps and other forms of welfare. 

The Obama administration and Congressional Democrats have shown conclusively that the serious problems of the nation are far less important to them than winning the next election.


As the fallout continued regarding the NBA’s decision to ban Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life based on racist comments made in private and leaked on tape, Jesse Jackson showed up on court before Game 5 of the first round of the playoffs between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night.

Earlier in the day, race-baiter extraordinaire Jackson appeared at the Milken Institute’s Global Conference in Beverly Hills, where he stated that Sterling’s comments showed “why we need affirmative action. People in high places have no will toward goodness unless the law is there to force it.” Jackson continued by stating that Sterling “should apologize, he should resign and he should sell the team. We have a high tolerance for racism. His past is very well known. It took this over-the-hill statement…to get to this point.”

In 2008, Jackson was caught on tape stating that he would like to “cut off [President Obama’s] nuts” for “talking down to black people…telling n**** how to behave.” In the 1980s, Jackson referred to New York City as “Hymietown.” He called Ward Connerly of the California Board of Regents a “house slave” and “puppet of the white man,” and according to James Mtume, stated in 2008 that Barack Obama was a “half-breed n**

Oprah has no business throwing aspersions of racism towards Sterling. She has exploited race for personal gain over the last 30 years. Interviewed by the BBC in November of 2013 she noted the older generation of racists (whites) must die to preclude any more racism from occurring. 

Oprah’s racial rants are well known yet she was awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Obama, for reasons still uncertain. President Obama chimed in noting the NBA did the right thing punishing this horrific person never considering many of Sterling’s rights were suppressed in the process. 

Obama has used the race card himself whenever it would score points with the crowd which elected him. Al Sharpton, a racial connoisseur, had the audacity to throw mud at Sterling. Long known for his hatred of whites he had fed off the trough of racism for decades. 

A long line of people with questionable histories on race relations spoke horrifically of a man who held the Clippers together for 33 years. Sterling’s team players accepted multiple million dollar checks from this so-called racist every year. Apparently money negates racial considerations.

Many questions have arisen since this scandal broke. Can Sterling claim he was entrapped by the recorded nature of the phone call that exposed his hateful rhetoric? Is there a tertiary party behind the scenes that prompted Donald’s mistress to rat him out? Was a felony committed by Donald’s mistress by not revealing to him he was being recorded? Does the NBA Constitution allow for due process? Why was there a rush to Judgment? Should Sterling’s past factor into the sanctions levied against him? 

Dozens of questions arise concerning the dubious nature of the charges brought against him. How does the First Amendment factor into this complexity? Donald Sterling has been very quiescent in the last few days. Perhaps he is gathering his forces for a counterpunch against his accusers. One question that lingers is: Will the Clippers and the NBA be free of racism in the event Sterling moves on? From this writer’s perch the answer is a resounding no.


The greatest myth that’s ever been perpetuated on kafir/Infidel societies is the myth of the moderate Muslim. We are told that most Muslim men are peaceful, peace-loving people who only want to raise their families in the peaceful peace of Islam. The terrorist acts are being committed by a handful of “evil” Muslim men who are misinterpreting the teachings of the Quran – they are the “Great Misunderstanders” of Islam.

After 39 attempts since 9/11 to cause catastrophic damage to America, Islam finally succeeded on the 40th attempt: The Boston Massacre. The reality is that we can foil many attacks but all Islam needs to do is succeed once to cause mayhem. Even if 1000 attempted attacks fail, if Islam succeeds on the 1001 attempt then Islam wins and we lose and freedom loses.

We are now been inundated by main stream media elites stating that this was “an Al Qaeda” or “Taliban”, or “Islamist”, attack. Not one of these media outlets are stating that the Boston Massacre was an attack by Islam. The true reality is just that. Sometimes the mental gymnastics to avoid seeing, hearing or saying the truth are fantastic. Who can forget that the Fort Hood massacre has been labeled “work-place violence” – as if it were merely a punch-up? This despite the fact that Nadal was heard screaming “ALLAH AKBAR!” – i.e. “(my) god is greater” (than your god – because I’m killing you). Had 9/11 occurred in 2011 rather than 2001, perhaps the cause would have been labeled “a navigational failure”?

Islam is NOT a wonderful religion of peace and love that has been hijacked and perverted by a few bad apples – the evil “Islamo-Fascists” or “Islamic militants” or “Islamic Fundamentalists” or “jihadists” or “Wahhabists” or “radical Islamists” or “political Islamists” etc.

There has been no hijacking. There has been no perversion. There is no moderate Islam. There is no radical Islam. There is no political Islam. There is no Islamism. Islam is Islam. Again, these Muslims are following EXACTLY the teachings of the Quran and in the divine footsteps of Muhammad as described in the Hadith. IT’S ALL ABOUT ISLAM – STUPID KAFIR.

Not only this massacre but the 9/11, Ft. Hood Massacre, Mumbai Massacre, Attempted “Christmas Tree bombing” (Portland Oregon), last year’s attempted Detroit Airliner Christmas Day massacre, the failed Times Square car bombing, and all other acts of Terror/Murder carried out by Muslims were executed by Muslim Men obeying to the letter the teaching of Quran 9:111 and all the other of Quranic and Hadith teachings to terrorize and murder kafirs.

Quran 9:111 “Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. Who fulfilleth His covenant better than Allah? Rejoice then in your bargain that ye have made, for that is the supreme triumph.”

All these Muslims are not demented mad men who have distorted the teachings of Islam but good, moral, Islamic heroes. They are just allah’s warriors obeying allah’s divine orders to kill kafirs.

You cannot understand Islam without comprehending Verse 9:111 and the crimes of Muhammad. Muhammad invented Islam and created his own god – Allah of the Quran and then pretended to receive divine transmissions from Allah via the Angel Gabriel. In order to get men who were willing to fight, conquer and die on his behalf, Muhammad through his fictional god, guaranteed his male followers external sex in Paradise, unlimited sex on earth with sex slaves and 80% of the booty from conquered kafirs. He cleverly concealed his evil ideology by wrapping Islam in a cloak of religious ceremony/practices. This is the true reality of Islam.

9/11 and the Ft. Hood massacre are Quran 9:111. The murder of 2,976 human beings on 9/11 masterminded by Osama bin Laden, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and Mohamed Atta, 13 soldiers by Major Hasan at Ft. Hood and attempted blowing up of US airliner over Detroit that would have murdered 250 on Christmas Day by Umar Farouk, the attempted blowing up by Mohamed Osman Mohamud of the Portland Oregon Christmas tree celebration that would have spread death and carnage are not crimes in Islam but holy, divine, religious acts guaranteeing accession to a Paradise filled with lustrous eyed, full breasted virgins. Again, killing 2,976 Kafirs meant no more to Muslims then stepping on 2,976 ants. The 13 murdered at Ft. Hood meant no more to Major Hasan then killing 13 flies. The attempted mass murder of 250 would have been no more then killing 250 cockroaches.The attempted Times Square car bombing that would have murdered hundreds would have meant no more then killing hundreds of grasshoppers.

If you drive your car late at night in the summer on a country highway then you massacre thousands of insects on your windshield – which gets smeared with the juices of their bodies. A quick squirt of screen-wash and a swipe with the wipers and they are gone. In Islam, Kafirs are no more then insects. 9/11, Fort Hood, Boston – just some worthless insects killed, but with this difference: killing these insects guarantees the Muslim all the delights of paradise.

The 2,976 9/11 victims were murdered so their 19 holy, pious Muslim killers who “fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain” (Quran 9:111) could ascend to Paradise. Indeed, the only way Muslim men can be guaranteed accession to Paradise is to slay or be slain in the service of Allah. Osama bin Laden, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Mohamed Atta and Major Hasan have guaranteed their accession to Paradise.

To ensure you understand this most important true reality of Islam we repeat – they are all true, good, moral, holy, heroic Muslims following exactly the teachings of the Quran and the divine example set by Muhammad himself as recorded in the other holy book of Islam – the Hadith.

Umar Farouk by failing in his attempt to blow up the airliner, Faisal Shahzad by bungling the van explosives and Mohamed Osman Mohamud by beingprevented by the FBI from carrying out his plans, all failed in their attempts to gain accession to Paradise. Allah only rewards Muslim murderers who succeed in murdering kafirs or are killed in the attempt. Allah does not reward failure.

Umar Farouk is not a “moderate” Muslim who traveled to Yemen and was radicalized. He is a good, holy Muslim who traveled to Yemen to be trained in demolition so he could blow up an airliner in accordance with Quran verse 9.5 and ascend to Paradise. For a cost of US 7,000, Faisal Shahzad nearly succeeded in murdering hundreds of New Yorkers enjoying a beautiful night out in Times Square. The carnage that would have covered the streets in blood and body-parts was a well planned act – including having Shahzad obtain US citizenship. The politically correct dribble that was put out by the media and political elites that Shahzad had emigrated to the US from Pakistan, failed to realize the American dream, lost his home to bank foreclosure and therefore became a radicalized jihadist or who, like Mayor Bloomberg, initially blamed the attack on the health care debate i.e. Tea partiers is not just dribble, it is also morally reprehensible since it acts as a shield against the truth about Islam.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud, another US citizen, didn’t want anyone to escape his planned carnage. Quoting from the Portland News “During this meeting, Mohamud explained how he had been thinking of committing some form of violent jihad since the age of 15,” the affidavit says. “Mohamud then told (the FBI operatives) that he had identified a potential target for a bomb: the Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square on Nov. 26, 2010.” The FBI operatives cautioned Mohamud several times about the seriousness of his plan, noting that there would be many people, including children, at the event, and that Mohamud could abandon his plans at any time with no shame. “You know there’s going to be a lot of children there?” an FBI operative asked Mohamud. “You know there are gonna be a lot of children there? [They]

will … be attacked in their own element with their families celebrating the holidays.” On the drive back to Corvalis, FBI operatives quizzed Mohamud about whether he was capable of looking at the bodies of those who would be killed in his planned Portland attack. “I want whoever is attending that event to leave, to leave either dead or injured,” Mohamud reportedly told the FBI operatives, the affidavit says. END QUOTE

Failure to recognize these killers for the monsters they are and Islam for the barbaric ideology it represents will lead to our destruction. Those media and political elites who support Islam will be accomplices to mass murder. By giving aid and comfort to Islam – they will be covered in the blood of more Twin Towers and Boston style massacres.

Again, Farouk, Hasan, Atta, Shahzad, Mohamed Osman and all the other Muslim murderers are not murderers in the eyes of Islam, but holy warriors of Allah fulfilling the will of the Allah, no matter what some Muslims may claim.

Forget Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia and other foreign “hotbeds” of radicalisation. All Mosques in the United States are teaching the Quran. Imams are teaching verses 9.5, 9.111 and the other thousands of immoral teachings calling for the extermination of kafirs and conquering the world for Allah. They are teaching Islam.

This is the true reality of the Boston and 9/11 Massacres – and all the other massacres that are to come.
