Statement on the Supreme Court Decision

The Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges that established homosexual marriage as national policy is unambiguously wrong on at least three crucial levels: Moral, Constitutional, and Structural.

On the Moral Level

The Court’s decision violates the moral standards specifically enumerated in our founding documents. The Declaration of Independence sets forth the fundamental principles and values of American government, and the Constitution provides the specifics of how government will operate within those principles. As the U. S. Supreme Court has correctly acknowledged:

The latter [Constitution] is but the body and the letter of which the former [Declaration of Independence] is the thought and the spirit, and it is always safe to read the letter of the Constitution in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence.
The Declaration first officially acknowledges a Divine Creator and then declares that America will operate under the general values set forth in “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.” The framers of our documents called this the Moral Law, and in the Western World it became known as the Common Law. This was directly incorporated into the American legal system while the colonies were still part of England; following independence, the Common Law was then reincorporated into the legal system of all the new states to ensure its uninterrupted operation; and under the federal Constitution, its continued use was acknowledged by means of the Seventh Amendment in the Bill of Rights. Numerous Founding Fathers and legal authorities, including the U. S. Supreme Court, affirmed that the Constitution is based on the Common Law, which incorporated God’s will as expressed through “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.”Those constitutional moral standards placed the definition of marriage outside the scope of government. As acknowledged in a 1913 case:

Democrats Equate Confederate Flag with the Cross

Democrats Equate Confederate Flag with the Cross as Symbolsof Hate to be Removed from Government Property

By Mack Rights

 

When the amazing family members of those killed in their church in Charleston, SC stood upon Jesus’ shoulders and forgave the drug-addled racist who killed those good folks, the liberals in this nation were fit to be tied.  They didn’t want to see Godly forgiveness.  They wanted to see race riots.

Unable to join in this mass celebration of unity where whites and blacks from across the country gathered in sorrow without racial strife, these liberals needed to press on in their drive to put a stake through the heart of this nation by breeding more of the hate that keeps them in power.

Now look, I have no love for the Confederate flag because I’m a Republican.  The Confederate flag is the flag under which the Democrats fought the new Republican Party in the Civil War in order to keep their Negroes in slavery.  So, since the Democrats are always saying we need a dialogue on race, let’s have one.

The Confederate flag was the flag of the slave-owning Democrats.  When the Republicans freed the slaves, it became the flag of the Democrats who continued to persecute the freed black man.  It was the flag of the Democrat Party’s KKK, which served to force blacks and Republicans to vote for Democrats in the voting booth with a gun to their head, as well as other purposes.  It was a flag of the Democrat Party segregationists who hoped to continue to keep the black man down.  Like I said, I have no love for it.

Nonetheless, it seems to me a bit wrong to then treat it like the Cross, the main symbol of Christianity, because some drug-addled kid with a gun posed in photos with the flag before he killed some black Christians.  The cross is such a powerful symbol of hate to all those who hate Christianity and the idea of objective truth when it comes to morality, it is, along with God’s Ten Commandments, the only thing that is banned from government property.

Banning the flag that stands as a big bloody tumor on the history of the racist Democrat Party almost serves to elevate that bloody symbol to the importance of the Cross.  The Cross is what those gracious family members carried as they found the God-inspired inner goodness it took to forgive the racist boy that carried the Democrat Party flag on his demonic crime spree.  While the Confederate army fought for slavery Continue reading

Some Random Thoughts

Some Random Thoughts

Hillary stood up to Russia, liberal Jews attacked Wounded Warriors, Osama bin Laden’s porn stash is classified, Pope Francis has allowed communist Bishops to run the Vatican, and my solution to the Chinese hack of all Federal workers’ dossiers- saving the best for last.

By Mack Rights

yodaryHillary announced yesterday that she intends to be the first woman president.  Did you know she was a woman?  It seems like she needs to continuously to remind us, lest we forget.  In any case, she bragged that, as Secretary of State, she stood up to Putin, the Russian dictator.  We contacted Putin to get a comment:

“Yees, thees womyn, thees les-bionic criminal mastermind scares me.  Eees true.  Thees eees vy ve had to take Crimea and the Ukraine.  Ve need a buffer to pro-taect me from thees crazy lady.  VRussia feers her ascension.  Eees true.”

So Hillary tells the truth for once.  Good for her.

In my recent piece called “Lessons from the Torah: Life must be separate from death,” I came up with just a few instances where mixing life with death may have caused some serious damage.  However, sometimes I continue writing on pieces in my head, even after they’ve been published.  Rabbi Daniel Lapin exposed me to a profound understanding that I’d lacked for too long- that being the reason that it isn’t kosher to mix dairy with meat in the Jewish religion.  Dairy represents life because nothing died to create the milk, while meat represents death for obvious reasons.  Life and death cannot be mixed, according to the Torah.

In the passing days, I remembered a couple of things that I wish I had included on the list at the time but hadn’t thought of them yet.

The first is a story about members of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity at the University of Florida.  They attacked some wounded veterans at the Panama City Beach.  As reported in the USA Today: Continue reading

Democrats and Unions Conspire Against People with a Job

Democrats and Unions Conspire Against People with a Job

And Union Retirees

By Mack Rights

hoFFA OBAMAJeffrey Scott Schapiro of The Washington Times recently wrote a piece titled “Teamsters spend big on politics while preparing to cut pensions- union tosses cash at lobbying despite retirement shortfalls.”  I have one piece of advice for Teamster’s President Jimmy Hoffa, Jr.: Get yourself an implanted GPS chip so they will know where to find your body.

Here’s the scoop.  The pensions, like Social Security, are way underfunded.  With the Teamsters’ pension, for every $3.46 that is paid out to retirees, only a single dollar is contributed from presently employed union members.  The fund is $2 billion short each year.

In December, before the Republicans took over the Senate, the lame duck Democrat Senate passed an Obama-signed Multiemployer Pension Reform Act (MPRA).  This allows any union pension fund, with more than one contributing employer, “to cut benefits to workers and current retirees if the plan is underfunded by at least 20 percent.”  They’re all that underfunded.  While the most vulnerable retirees might get full benefits, the younger ones are about to get letters explaining the coming cuts on a sliding scale.

Let’s look at this from another perspective.  Unions spend millions upon millions of dollars, taken from union members as dues, every year to get Democrats elected.  The Democrats then allowed these unions to cut the pension payments to retirees and the expectations of those presently working to get their own pension in the future.  In other words, union members are paying dues to Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. and his ilk so that Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. can negotiate lower pension payments to retired union members.  So far, only the Teamsters have hit the news, but there are up to 10 million workers whose pension payments are on the chopping block because of this Democrat-passed bill.  Some are expecting cuts up to 30 to 40%.  But all is not lost:

Robert Amsden, who drove a truck in Wisconsin for 33 years, recently told Labor Notes online magazine that the pension cuts won’t save any money because Congress will end up making up the difference through government-funded entitlement programs.

“They are going to bail us out one way or another. People who never expected any government assistance in their life, they’re going to have to go for food stamps,” he said.

In other words, this ability of the union thugocracy to cut payments rather than admit their own failures is made possible by government subsides, such as food stamps and other welfare programs.  This is a clever way for the government to bail out the almost-bankrupted unions by putting pensioners on food stamps.  I’m sure every trucker on the road is thinking, “I’m working really hard now so that when I retire, I qualify for food stamps.”  It’s the American Dream.

Lessons from the Torah: Life Must be Separate from Death

 

Lessons from the Torah: Life Must be Separate from Death

By Mack Rights

I was listening to Glenn Beck interviewing Rabbi Daniel Lapin this morning.  Rabbi Lapin is an Orthodox Jewish rabbi, meaning he still believes that the Torah is indeed the Word of God.  One of the best books I’ve ever read is his book called America’s Real War.  So when I heard Glenn Beck was interviewing my favorite rabbi, I paid attention.

He explained why it’s not kosher to mix cheese with meat.  Cheeseburgers are definitely one of the many reasons I’d never make it as a good Jew.  I went to school with a lot of Jews.  My fraternity was so Jewish that we used to call the Epsilon in our fraternity’s name “Epstein.”  Not a one of my Jewish brothers ever really expressed any sort of sincere devotion to their religion to me though.  They were deeply Jewish in the cultural sense, but none of it ever felt any bit religious.  A bunch of them invited me to a Rosh Hashanah dinner once, but other than the opening prayer, it wasn’t super religious.  Just pleasantly family oriented and one of the best meals I’ve ever had.  My buddy’s mother can cook- no question.

As far as I could tell though, other than the dinner traditions there, the only religious thing I ever saw was when they’d keep kind of kosher.  However, not a one of them ever explained the reasons for the kosher rules to me.  I’d always just considered that an indication that they just didn’t know.  None of the Jews I’ve ever known were in anyway religious according to the Torah, as far as I could tell.  They were all super liberal, pro-abortion, pro-gay, and pro anything that a Christian would stand against.  In fact, the only criticism I’d ever heard from them of any culture was of Christianity.  Surprise, right?  Liberal Jews hate Christianity.  That’s the feeling I got anyway.  I just cut them some slack- the Holocaust and all.

So enough of the suspense.  It’s not kosher to mix dairy with meat because the Torah requires that man keep death and life separate.  The cheese on a cheeseburger, made of milk, is life.  Nothing was killed in the creation of cheese.  The burger, on the other hand, came from the slaughter of the cow.  Brilliant.  I get it now.  I’m still going to eat cheeseburgers, but I suddenly understand the reason.

Rabbi Lapin was talking about how life needs to be separate from death in respect to what is happening in the Middle East.  You see, the Judaic religion is divine.  What is happening in the Middle East is not.  That which is evil is the mirror image of that which is good, by that I mean it is reversed.  Death is the mirror image of life, and the two need to be separate.

However, Muslims get to have sex with seventy-two virgins Continue reading

Sex-Crime Lessons from Dennis Hastert, Lena Dunham and Josh Duggar

Sex-Crime Lessons from Dennis Hastert, Lena Dunham and Josh Duggar

By Mack Rights

hastert, dunham and duggarAt present, America has several sordid tales of perversion to occupy itself with so it won’t have time to look into the Hillary Clinton Crime Family’s growing list of treasonous crimes and affairs.  Nonetheless, there are lessons and implications in each of these developing stories that, if we right-thinking people bring them to life, will make the left regret that they think we’re like a bunch of dogs that are easily distracted by the tasty squirrels they keep sending our way.

Let’s start with Dennis Hastert, the former Republican Congressional Majority Leader.  He was recently busted for giving upwards of $3.5 million to some extortionist that was allegedly willing to expose Hastert’s previous crimes of diddling a boy or boys while he was a high school wrestling coach.  Apparently, he took the money out of the bank in incremental withdrawals of less than $10,000, so as to avoid the banks’ required reporting to the federal government.  This law was put into place to prevent money laundering of drug dealers and other miscreants.

However, structuring the withdrawals was only what led to the investigation into why he was taking out so much money.  You see, it’s not illegal to structure withdrawals, but it is illegal to lie to the investigating FBI agent when he asks you why you took out the money in structured withdrawals.  Whether that is an invasion of privacy or not is another story.  Lying to the FBI agent is why he may go to jail- not for raping underage boys in the 70s, simply because he’s protected by the statute of limitations.  Isn’t that pathetic that there’s actually a statute of limitations on raping children?  I wonder what liberal thought that was smart.  Actually, I do understand that it is to protect folks from being smeared by false accusers who have no proof but can destroy a man’s reputation.  But in this case, the $3.5 million is the proof.

In any case, it’s ironic that Hastert was the Majority Leader when Congress impeached President Bill Clinton for lying under oath about having sex outside of marriage, which actually should be a crime because, as president, he could be extorted by foreign entities.  Nonetheless, while, other than allegedly raping Juanita Broderick and abusing another lady (I forget which, but he said, “You’d better put some ice on that” instead of giving her a cigarette after he gave her a fat lip in the process of doing his business), Clinton’s sex crimes weren’t as bad.  Nonetheless, the left got their panties in a bunch over the fact that their philanderer in chief was being impeached for lying under oath- which they whined was just about sex.  So now they’re getting Hastert for lying to an FBI agent in order to cover up his sordid affairs- the kind of sordid affairs they’d normally approve of if Hastert were a Democrat.

Look, I’m not sticking up for this guy.  I think he should be shot, legally of course.  While we don’t know much about the person that was extorting him, called individual A, we do know about another boy who he’d allegedly groomed into the gay lifestyle.  Steve Reinboldt was the equipment manager for the wrestling team that Hastert coached in about 1970.  According to the ABC report on the long affair, Steve’s sister Jolene finally came public because of the investigation into Hastert.  As reported:

“I asked him, when was your first same sex experience. He looked at me and said, ‘It was with Dennis Hastert,’” Jolene said. “I was stunned.”

Jolene said she asked her brother why he never told anyone. “And he just turned around and kind of looked at me and said, ‘Who is ever going to believe me?’”

Senator Elizabeth Warren Does a Rain Dance in California

Texas and Oklahoma Flood- Coincidence or Overkill on the Redistribution of Rain Rights?

By Mack Rights

As you know, they’ve been getting awful amounts of rain in Texas and Oklahoma, and this has caused massive flooding and numerous deaths.  My prayers go out to those affected.

Meanwhile, in California, they have a horrible drought.  This is necessitating that folks let their grass turn brown, that they take quick showers, and that farmers let the fields remain unplanted.

As you’d expect, the liberals have gone crazy.  Every slight change in the weather is called Man-Made Global Warming due to the “pollution” of Carbon Dioxide.  Carbon Dioxide is simply what is exhaled by every breathing human and animal, meaning that the very act of breathing makes you a polluter in the eyes of these blood-shot-eyed dirt worshippers.

Very rarely, if ever, do the liberals report the real reasons that California’s drought is so bad.  They’ve let their population grow dramatically by turning their welfare state into a magnet for illegal aliens crossing the Mexican border.  Their Senate just approved giving illegal aliens free healthcare.  Newsflash: that’s not going to make them go home.  On top of that, the state’s pot-headed environmentalist whackos have prevented the building of any new dams or water pipelines- meaning no new water sources to accommodate the growing population.  Add to that the regulations that ensure that farmers are refused access to numerous water sources, so as to protect the water rights of fish and other useless critters, and you get massive man-caused droughts.

Forget about the need for water to grow food in order to keep humans alive- these smelt need to spawn.  In other words, California made its own bed.  Oh, and I shouldn’t forget the fact that much of the mountain water is diverted by Mexican drug cartels that use the water to grow marijuana on public lands.  The water never even gets to the people because it’s being used to grow Mexico’s biggest cash crop- marijuana in America.  I guess that’s another job Americans won’t do.  Too bad the profits go back to Mexico while the imported pot growers stay here.  But I guess someone’s got to grow enough pot to keep the Californian population dumb enough Continue reading

They’ll Get You Through Your Children

They’ll Get You Through Your Children

By Mack Rights

We’ll get you through your children!”- Allen Ginsburg- gay radical beatnik poet.

 

Don’t think they won’t!”- Me- straight dude who thinks most poetry is mindless drivel.

 

A while back, I wrote a piece called “Are your kids being turned into Feminists at Public Schools?”  In it I wrote the following two paragraphs.  I highlighted the part I want to remark on in bold:

Common Core is a self-preserving cultural parasite that needs willing adherents to be elected in order to continue to infect the minds of innocent children.  As a result, it teaches more than just reading, writing and arithmetic, which it barely teaches at all.  It teaches ideology, and of course, its ideology is of the left.  It is the government control of “liberalizing” your child in order to make them more conducive to being slaves on the government plantation.  Its goal is to transfer loyalty from the family onto the government that seeks to replace the need for family with clever new government programs manned by expensive and mindless government-unionized drones.

First though, it must delegitimize the need for family.  They’re already arguing that allowing parents to read to children before bed is unfair to the children who don’t have parents that read to them before bed.  Looking a bit further down that slippery slope, one sees that children with two parents will have an unfair advantage over children with fewer.  Therefore, no child should be raised in a two-parent home, but all children should be raised in a state-run orphanage.  Only then can we have true equality.  Sound like science fiction? – So did landing on the moon at one point in history.  So did the formation of the Hitler Youth at one time in history.  History repeats itself over and over- except the part about landing on the moon.  Obama has grounded all our space ships and turned NASA into a creative writing outfit to generate fantasies about how the Muslim world contributed to the scientific world– you know, because a sandaled camel jockey spends a lot of time looking at stars in between terrorist attacks.

Only a few days after I wrote that, Obama’s Secretary of Education Arne Duncan proposed “public boarding schools for our kids.”  Whose kids?  Arne’s kids and my kids, or does Arne think he shares ownership of my kids and your kids?  I’m sure those questions will be answered later of course.  As Sylvia Van Peebles of the Examiner writes:

Have you heard the one about Arne Duncan‘s proposed public boarding schools? Actually, it’s not a new idea. Authoritarian governments have always known that it is important to mold the young in their ideology. The first Premier of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin, thought of it decades ago. He said, “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.” We saw the results of that.

At his conference, Arne Duncan said: “I think all of our schools should be community centers Continue reading
