Almost all prior and current politicians running for president this year have voiced their positions on the dramatic influx of illegal aliens here and abroad. A number of solutions has been presented, from Trump’s wall to Bernie Sanders’ various positions on immigration.

Most Americans, native-born and legally naturalized citizens, also have opinions on the matter, from sympathetic to hostile, according to their interpretation of the impending doom the situation portends, since “immigration” is becoming a cover for terrorists to enter non-suspecting countries.

Leaving the terrorism component aside for the moment, however, the fact of the matter is, we have a problem morphing into a catastrophe with illegal aliens flooding across the border into the United States. Obviously, there’s something in this country that attracts people of other nations. Those of us who have had the privilege of visiting other countries – and comparing them with America – are well aware of the reasons.

My Mama, who was also a schoolteacher, had a phrase she used on me regularly: “Before you open your mouth, know what you’re talking about.” Using Mama’s standard, I’d like to briefly address the issue of illegal immigrants coming across from Mexico.

I grew up in Texas, near the Mexican border – 40 miles from Mexico in one place on the border and 73 miles from another border town. (The border of Mexico curves around Texas in several places, so the city I grew up in was within “walking distance” of Mexico.) I lived in a town where farming and ranching were the primary means of economic input and development. Despite our proximity to Mexico, one of the things that we did not have was a flood of illegals pouring across our borders. The ones who did get here were few and far between.

As previously stated, farmers and ranchers were the principal employers in those days. While there were tractors and vehicles available, there were nowhere near the number of mechanical harvesters and four-wheel-drive vehicles for herding flocks as there are today. This included machines for picking cotton and harvesting vegetables like corn and watermelons.

Something else was unavailable “back in the day.” We had no government programs to reward people for not producing. There was one very specific principle that governed the society of that time, and it was equally applicable to whites, coloreds (as we were called then) and Mexicans.

While there was rigid social segregation, there was also equal integration in certain areas, like working in the fields. The biblical principle in play which impacted everyone, regardless of race, creed or gender, was in effect whether you were born in the U.S. or came here by sneaking in.

As I look back on those days, I am fully convinced that the universal application of this principle prevented then, and would eliminate now, many of the major problems we are facing today.

To review, though 40 to 70 miles from the Mexican border, we were not flooded with illegal immigrants. Secondly, it applied equally to every race and gender: white, black, brown, male and female, from working age (12 years old) to retirement age (too old to work). Thirdly, this principle prevented a social problem that has now become an epidemic in the modern black community – single mothers, mostly women who get pregnant and deliberately have anywhere from one to six children, often by different men.

It could work just as effectively today as it did then. Once implemented and judiciously enforced, it would cut trillions of dollars from our national debt, halt the incomprehensible drain on our economy and stop the flow of illegal aliens into this country. I am referring here to a “transcendent principle” that works regardless of race or gender.

While this is a biblical principle, I’m not talking religion here. In bygone days, I did not even know it was taken from 2 Thessalonians 3:10. All I knew was that this is the way it was: “If anyone will not work, neither let him eat.”

This brings us to the 21st century question: Why should someone work, or look for work, when they can get paid for staying home, watching TV and having yet another illegitimate child?

According to the CDC, “preliminary data indicate that 40.7% of all 2012 births were out-of-wedlock; and, there are vast differences among racial and ethnic groups. Among non-Hispanic blacks, the figure is highest at 72.2%; 66.9% for American Indians/Alaska Natives; 53.5% for Hispanics; 29.4% for non-Hispanic whites; a mere 17.1% for Asians/Pacific Islanders.”

I titled this column, “What gets rewarded gets done.” It looks to me like it’s working.

While scanning news articles on the Internet a day or so ago, I found a very interesting piece from the Washington Post. It was this lo-o-o-o-ng article about a young “lady” (deliberate use of quotation marks) who had decided to attend a rally and voice a protest.

She was a college student – and I found it interesting that her protest was scheduled not for her college campus, where debate used to occur, but at a political rally. Interestingly, she had decided on a Trump rally as the site of her protest.

The article purports to highlight the one-on-one conversation she was having with herself vis-a-vis her plan for the protest. Her self-to-self dialogue contained segments of the usual uninformed, sociopolitical elements utilized by people who are unfamiliar with the facts of the status quo versus history.

Upon arriving at the Trump rally, she mingled with the crowd, took her seat and waited until Mr. Trump began his speech; then she jumped up, moved to the aisle and began to shout, “Black lives matter! Black lives matter!”

She said, “People began to yell back at me, ‘All lives matter! Get out of here!’ I wanted to tell them that, of course, all lives matter, but that they weren’t dealing with the same struggles black people were – police brutality, an unfair justice system, generational poverty. The fact is that our country has ignored our problems for too long.”

I had to re-read that paragraph a couple of times to be sure I was seeing it correctly.

Unfortunately, there is some truth to the phrase, “Ignorance is bliss.” As a “colored,” then “Negro” (pronounced “Nigra” by some), then “Afro-American” which became “African-American,” and now “black” citizen of the United States, I could only shake my head in disbelief. The sad truth is, this student had absolutely no idea what she was talking about.

At the risk of being labeled “out of step,” I could not help but be reminded of some hard facts regarding her assessment of the “struggles of black people.” Here she was in a public arena, filled with mostly white folks, all (as was she) exercising freedom of assembly and speech – guaranteed to all American citizens – where she was yelling, “Black lives matter!”

Back in the day, when I was her age, there was a significantly different set of realities. First of all, I would not have been allowed in the type of meeting she was attempting to disrupt. Blacks then were not allowed in the same public arenas as whites; schools (from primary to university), lunch counters, juvenile delinquent facilities, mental hospitals and even cemeteries were rigidly segregated. There was one bright spot on the horizon, however: We could, as true believers in Christ, be unified in heaven – because then we would all be “washed whiter than snow.” (Someone actually said that to me years ago.)

Her cry at the Trump rally was, “Black lives matter!”

 To whom?

Have you ever wondered what African-Americans want, and why they vote Democratic? Do you know how slavery actually began in America? Ben Kinchlow’s best-selling book “Black Yellowdogs” breaks race and politics down in black and white. Get your copy today!

I could not help but wonder why she was not marching or demonstrating in front of a Planned Parenthood center. If black lives matter, why are 78 percent of their clinics located in minority communities?

If black lives matter, and blacks make up only 13 percent of the population, why do they account for 35 percent of all abortions in America? Since 1973, more than 15.5 million blacks have been killed by abortion.

According to Erma Clardy Craven, social worker and civil rights leader (now deceased): “Several years ago, when 17,000 aborted babies were found in a dumpster outside a pathology laboratory in Los Angeles, California, some 12-15,000 were observed to be black.”

As a side note, the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a devout racist who created the Negro Project, designed to sterilize unknowing black women. She said, “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.”

Black lives matter!

To whom?

According to FBI data, more than 1,400 black Americans murdered more blacks in two years than were lynched by whites from 1882 to 1968. In 2012, black males (a mere 6.6 percent of the population) committed a staggering 5,531 murders. (In other words, black people – at just a fifth of the size of the population – committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.

Black lives matter?

Let’s just take one example: There have been almost as many deaths in Chicago as there have been in the two major wars carried out by the U.S. military this century, as this city’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

Department of Justice statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52 percent of homicides. It would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as died at the hands of others blacks in 2012 alone.

University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012.

In 2013, blacks – 12 percent of the population – committed 38 percent of the murders while whites accounted for just 31 percent.

Black lives matter?

To whom?

Seems to me our college student was demonstrating in the wrong neighborhood.

We are hearing so much today in this 2016 presidential campaign about the greatness of America – her past greatness, the present loss of greatness and the possibilities of future greatness. It is worthwhile to review how our Founding Fathers, and others of the time, viewed this subject.

The men intimately involved in the founding of the United States of America were convinced that an acknowledgement of the Creator was inextricably bound up in the life of the nation. The Founding Fathers were not deceived regarding the inherent dangers of a secular society. This has been nowhere more clearly stated than in a statement often attributed to John Quincy Adams, sixth president of the United States: “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this; it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with those of Christianity.”

This “indissoluble bond” between the Founders’ faith and their politics – a bond that liberal, irreligious, activist America haters are working ever harder to destroy – is the basis for our liberties as a nation and the foundation of this powerful engine of human liberty. John Witherspoon, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, a leader in the Continental Congress and the sixth president of Princeton University, held another view of this type of activism: “Whoever is an avowed enemy of God, I scruple [hesitate] not to call him an enemy to his country.”

Lately, there has been a great deal of criticism of the ideas inherited from “a bunch of dead old white guys” (aka the Founding Fathers), but what other nation in all of history has America’s overall record of progress in human and civil rights? (By all means, include slavery, but also include the deaths of 620,000 young men in a civil war to abolish it, and billions of dollars and continuing legislation to expunge slavery’s legacy.)

America is not, and was never intended to be, a secular society – and for good reason. Ultimately, a secular society, as demonstrated by countries like China, Russia and some of its former satellites, can maintain public order only through coercion.

People who support a purely secular position must of necessity support ever-increasing government activity, intervention and legislation to manage public behavior. George Washington underscored this in his final Farewell Address to the nation; an admonition so stirring that Jefferson established it as required reading at the University of Virginia:

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness – these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.

“The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked, Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?

“And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”

At the risk of stepping into a politically incorrect mine field, the fact of the matter is, the Founders of the American republic were obviously and specifically referring to the religion of the Judeo-Christian Bible. The political, religious and personal freedoms (including the right of dissent) enjoyed by Western civilization in general, and America in particular, is a derivative of the Judeo-Christian worldview and can only exist freely in societies founded upon this worldview. As stated by Patrick Henry, “It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated [weakened or debased] state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom.” History and an unbiased view of the geopolitical world of today verify this.

The Founding Fathers were not perfect, but they knew right from wrong, good from evil and made the best decisions possible given the harsh realities of their day. They believed the future of America rested upon the character, integrity and continued moral growth of a Bible-reading people. Because of their faith, they understood that the continued existence of a free republic depended upon moral virtues exercised from within, by individuals who understand that a society of individuals is held together not by externally imposed law, but by internally imposed self-government.

The genesis of political parties may have been altruism. But today, for all practical intents and purposes, most political functionaries are more concerned with re-election – at any cost – than with serving their constituency.

French historian and political scientist Alexis de Tocqueville visited America in the 1800s and was deeply impressed with the people’s commitment to God and country. According to published reports, he said:

“I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers – and it was not there … in her fertile fields and boundless forests – and it was not there … in her rich mines and her vast world commerce – and it was not there … in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution – and it was not there.

Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power.

America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

As I watched the latest Republican “debate” last week (and I use the term loosely) and heard the responses from the candidates for the highest office in the land – men supposedly debating plans for the future of America – I must confess I was somewhat anguished. Rude interruptions, smart aleck responses, accusations and even vulgar references left me wondering what on earth I was witnessing and why I had spent two hours in front of my TV. It was an egregious spectacle. As I reflected on it, I was reminded of a column I wrote several years ago along this line of thought.

The current set of problems in America exists primarily from the usurpation of power at the national level because of the abdication of personal responsibility at the local level.

We are experiencing – because we (the public) have allowed it – massive changes within our society and the societal mores on which the American republic rests. We must learn what that means, how to survive it and that traditional values can still be taught in an unfriendly and anti-morality society. A free society without moral underpinnings cannot continue to survive, but will, in fact, as with any structure that lacks foundational support, implode. Ask ancient Rome.

Something frightening is happening in America today – more and more the traditional foundations are being destroyed. People without moorings (a stable traditional family, a sense of personal self-worth and concrete moral values) are being swept away by a new wave.

A new U.S. government report shows huge increases in the incidences of domestic violence, rape and sexual assault, up 42 percent and 25 percent respectively. According to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE, on college campuses, “Christian groups are considered religious, whereas Muslim or Hindu groups are considered cultural.” We see this regularly on high-school and college campuses, as well as in recent attacks on a national holiday, Christmas.

Have you ever wondered what African-Americans want, and why they vote Democratic? Do you know how slavery actually began in America? Ben Kinchlow’s best-selling book “Black Yellowdogs” breaks race and politics down in black and white. Get your copy today!

This new wave, based on New Age values, seeks demassification – the breaking into smaller groups – of the culture, its values and its Judeo-Christian morality. It seeks to substitute new belief systems and multi-ethnic/distinct national, linguistic, socio-cultural groups for the existing, traditional “one nation, under God, indivisible …” concept.

Traditional concepts such as male and female, married couples (consisting of one man and one woman), father and mother (consisting of a male and female) have come under constant attack and perhaps will become the periphery. Gendercide may soon become part of the modern-day lexicon. The book “Unnatural Selection” by Mara Hvistendahl contends that “parental preference” is the reason for the aborting of more than 160 million female fetuses worldwide since the late 1970s. According to some reports, gendercide is the leading cause of death of females in the U.S.

According to Robert Tyler (Advocates for Faith and Freedom), gender liberation may very well become the new phrase in the next wave in elementary school education. Tyler explains, “gender liberation means that male/female distinctions must be eliminated in order to ‘liberate’ children from unnecessary stereotypes.” This is not about equal rights but “eliminating the natural distinctions between male and female.” The order of the day will be “anything goes” and “diversity” – at all costs.

There will be a great hue and cry for the demassification of society. No longer will there be the current concept of a morality of the majority, but there must be equal minority groups and court-enforced diversity. Left-leaning futurists from their ivy-covered glass towers will wax eloquent about the need for direct democracy (which is mob rule), more diversity and greater representation for all minority groups, including enforced sexual orientations. This will come at the expense of national tranquility and is all based upon some hopeful, utopian, humanistic misconception that relies on the innate goodness of mankind.

Decency was once a watchword, but decency does not communicate morality without impartial standards. This new wave seeks, and is resulting in, a giant, unresponsive, socialist-leaning bureaucracy that would replace individual responsibility with the state. The state would thus become the master and, consequently, assume the responsibility for implementing, directing and ultimately controlling collective behavior. (Remember, one of the candidates running for president is a self-confessed socialist.)

Restoring individual responsibility and requiring citizens to be involved in issues that affect them can offset the need for large bureaucracies. For example, laws that would affect long-standing public conduct (civic, social and moral standards) would require informed public participation, an expression of concern by individuals authentically caring about their fellow citizens, not merely by judicial decree or government mandate.

The founding documents of America presupposed such action. Individuals are created as living beings of worth, personal value and significance, in the image and likeness of a righteous and loving God. The founders assumed and anticipated the citizenry and their public servants would treat one another accordingly.

The time is long overdue to return to the dignity and loftiness of our calling as children of God in His great gift to us – our American republic.

At a rally after his victory over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, “Mr. [Bernie] Sanders said his win represented the start of a political revolution. He told supporters, ‘Together we have sent a message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington, from Maine to California.’”

As I read that, my head began to swim and the words of a well-known song by the Beatles rang through my memory:

“Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being ’round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won’t you please, please help me?”

Let me get this straight: Bernie Sanders is a publicly avowed, self-confessed socialist and he just won big in the New Hampshire primary? Could we possibly have a socialist president of the U.S.?

What exactly is a socialist? A socialist is someone who supports the political philosophy of socialism, which is a system of government that advocates community ownership and control of all lands and businesses rather than individual ownership.

The dictionary further defines “socialism” as 1) any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods, 2) a system of society or group living in which there is no private property, 3) a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state.

The man who won the New Hampshire primary, and is a publicly declared opponent of the economic policies that have made America great, says he is an advocate of those policies preferred by Communist-dominated societies, ala the U.S.S.R.

So if you are a business owner (small, medium or large), is Sen. Sanders declaring that your business should be owned and operated by the state? It certainly reads that way.

In contrast to the socialist mindset, America is a nation based on the capitalist ideology – an economic system in which investment in and ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of wealth is made and maintained chiefly by private individuals or corporations, especially as contrasted to cooperatively or state-owned means of wealth.

“Although the term capitalism was scarcely in use at the time of the Founding, the Founders supported the principle of economic liberty underlying it,” The Daily Signal’s Julia Shaw explained.  “The Founders understood that property rights and free markets were constitutive elements of what it means to be free. They, therefore, believed that government has a responsibility to protect the rights of all to participate in the economy by upholding contracts, lifting artificial trade barriers, and protecting the right to acquire, possess, and freely use property.”

America has flourished under the free-enterprise system, defined thusly: “The basis of a free market capitalist system, it is a business unit established, owned, and operated by private individuals for profit, instead of by or for any government or its agencies.”

Many of us still have a strong reservation against the government being in charge of everything – as in Mr. Sander’s socialism construct.

I have quick quiz:

1) What do the following countries have in common?

New Zealand

Answer: They all are practitioners of official socialism.

2) Which of them compares to the United States in terms of business opportunities for the majority of its citizens?

3) If socialism is so much more to be desired than capitalism, then absent the current influx of immigrants into Europe, what other countries presently have, or have consistently had, the same problem with illegal aliens flooding their borders as in the U.S.?

Perhaps we should send this to candidate Clinton for the next debate? Or is her philosophy too close to Sanders’ to differentiate?

America, Don’t Abandon Principles that Made Us Great

I am a fairly well-read student of history and have also lived through a few things at this point in my life. I know a little bit about human nature and what man is capable of, for good or evil. Regardless of what circumstances I have ever found myself in, I have always had a positive outlook on life.

In conjunction with that, my perspective on America, because of all we have been afforded in this country, has been one of enormous enthusiasm and prayerful gratitude. We have so much for which to be grateful.

The concept of life and liberty has been ingrained since my childhood. Even during the times in my youth when I was in open conflict regarding the inequalities between white people and black people, my confidence was ever rooted in my belief that America was better than what I was then experiencing. I later came to believe that somehow we would eventually realize the potential that was there for every person in this country, regardless of origin or station, if we had the will to work out the existing conflicts.

Even though I have learned from personal experience how fortunate we are to be citizens of the United States of America, it is increasingly becoming a challenge to maintain that optimistic outlook for the future. There is so much we take for granted – and so much to lose. When will we realize that all we hold dear is slipping through our fingers?

Our Founders gifted us with all the tools necessary to build a prosperous, free and happy place to live, filled with limitless possibilities. They made it clear through their writings (and the creation of our Constitution) what it would take morally and spiritually to maintain the republic for which they fought and died.

As I struggle with an incessant insistence by the left to defy all the laws of God and man, I am aggrieved by the ignorance of many of my countrymen. Not all, of course, but far too many have fallen victim to the brainwashing and deceit propagated by an elitist media, left-leaning “educators” and many government officials at all levels.

It’s a sad misconception that we can look for turnover in leadership as an answer to our ills. Poor leadership is a very small part of our ongoing decline. Every nation in history has had deceitful leaders, whether they were kings or elected officials; there’s nothing new there.

In America, heretofore, we have enjoyed extraordinary liberties, prosperity and freedoms in “the pursuit of happiness.” Without question, with the possible exception of Israel, we remain the most heaven-blessed nation that ever existed, as long as we, like they, abide in His will.

However, more and more it becomes clear how much this very same prosperity and freedom has become license in place of liberty and is taken for granted, abused and prostituted. The inevitable results are apostasy – and the subsequent loss of God’s favor upon us. To think that we, as a people, can defy God, common sense and rational thinking, and yet maintain our status as a free people, borders on insanity.

Even the briefest review of history proves that any civilization that did not possess or hold to such principles that we have been given in the Bible – which constitute the basis of right and wrong, wisdom and understanding – is found on the junk pile of nations. The Babylonians, Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Chinese and even the British Empire (on which “the sun never set”) all bear witness to this truth.

America, arguably the greatest empire in existence today, is on the same rapidly declining path to self-destruction. The reason is simple: We are abandoning the principles that are the basis for our greatness, the Judeo-Christian precepts found in the one place that clearly articulates the principles that have led to that greatness – the Bible.

We press on with our lives as we will, all the while expecting that our actions, our choices, our opinions and even our votes will have no real bearing on our future, individually or collectively. It’s a dreadfully misguided viewpoint.

We cannot expect a new president or a new Congress to save us.

“We the people” are empowered by God, and our Constitution, to govern ourselves (and all that implies), and we own the responsibility to measure up to this expectation.

We need to return to common sense, restraint, self-respect, love for God, respect for the rule of law, moral decency – the very Judeo-Christian precepts that have birthed this great nation, and without which will lead to our downfall.

We are, however, abandoning these bedrock principles today with such rapidity that our youth have difficulty determining what is right or wrong. Let me again ask you: Absent the principles of the Bible, the basis for Western Civilization, how does one differentiate between truth or lies, moral or immoral, right and wrong?

Could it be, has it been, reduced to something as simple as “… all the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes”? (Judges 21:25, NLT).

Why are Muslims Flocking to Land of ‘Infidels’?

I have questions. In every place Muslims have arrived in large numbers, they begin to establish areas that become known as “no-go zones” – places that are, in effect, small Muslim “countries.” This is not simply an issue to be thrown into yesterday’s news file as, according to a recently leaked secret document, there are estimates that by the end of December 2015, in Germany or Scandinavia, France or the U.K., there were 1.5 million mostly Muslim illegals.

These “non-Muslims-enter-at-your-own-risk” areas are inhabited, controlled, patrolled and dominated by Muslims, with Shariah law (not local ordinances) becoming the law of the land in those areas.

According to my understanding, as soon as they “escape” Muslim-dominated countries for freedom and economic opportunity, they immediately begin to establish the exact conditions they fled to find “freedom.”

Here are a few of my questions: If Muslims are leaving Islamic-dominated countries for Western civilization, why are they subsequently demanding Islamic Shariah law and customs? If they love their customs so much, why are they flocking to the land of the “infidels”?

In other words, why are Muslims fleeing Islamic-dominated lands to re-establish Islamic-dominated areas in non-Islamic-dominated regions? Isn’t the rule of thumb, “We are leaving here to find a different place because we don’t like it here”? If Muslims love Shariah law and Islamic customs so much, why are they not flooding into Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iran, Iraq and Syria, where these customs abound, instead of France, England, Germany and the United States?

I have often stated in private, and not so private, conversations that a major part of the problem in the West is that we have no idea what life is like in Muslim-dominated countries. I have also on many occasions stated that American children should not graduate at after 12th grade but 13th grade. Grade 13 would subsequently be spent in a Middle Eastern country of their choice (excluding Israel, which is too much like America) at the job and income level of whatever their father or mother does for a living in America.

What do they pay non-professional day laborers in Muslim countries? How do they treat women in these countries? What happens to a girl who gets pregnant out of wedlock? How easy is it to get a wife there? What kind of civil rights are indigenous to citizens in most Muslim societies?

After spending a year there, living at the income level their father’s skill level would generate, and having acquired the knowledge of life under Islamic law versus the law of our American republic, political correctness would vanish into thin air in light of their new-found perspective.

A major part of the problem here is that most Americans have only one standard of measurement: life in America. We talk about poverty in America, and there is a movement to raise minimum wage to $15 per hour. What are the refugees escaping in their Muslim homelands? Here is only one unreported example, the minimum wage.

Saudi Arabia (which takes in hundreds of billions of dollars in oil revenues) has the highest paid workers: $720 per month. Following is how a few others stack up per month: Libya, $327; Jordan, $288; Iran, $215; Iraq, $214; and Morocco pays its agricultural workers $1.50 per day, while Qatar pays $0 minimum wage. You’re on your own, baby.

Do you hear of riots and demonstrations taking place against employers in any of these countries? Can you even begin to imagine what would happen if the minimum wage anywhere in the West, and especially in America, dropped to $1.50 per day ($45 per month)? Let’s be generous: How about a whopping $327 a month? The poorest people in America are rich compared to ordinary citizens in the aforementioned countries.

Ask several European countries about the results of their open-border policies. This from the headlines of several European newspaper articles:

  • Muslim raping of women epidemic in refugee camps
  • The big list of Muslim sex attacks gets bigger
  • Criticize Muslim rapes? “You’re a bigot!”
  • Rape jihad shows Germany is no longer German
  • Germany sex attack suspects from Syria
  • Germany covering up crimes committed by migrants
  • Muslim refugee charged with raping 10-year-old girl

Some are actually accusing Americans of being “barbaric” for not allowing this flood of Islamic men of fighting age into our country, so, we open our borders to them? As we can see from the current situations evolving in European and Scandinavian countries, we, like they, would be putting the peace and safety of America at risk. It must be remembered, the ultimate aim of Islam is world domination and the imposition of Shariah law – and you cannot know what that is like until you have been to places dominated by Islam.

As a member of the U.S. armed forces, I spent almost five years in three Muslim-dominated countries – Libya, Morocco and Saudi Arabia. When I landed at McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey after my third assignment in the Middle East – and this was back in the day when segregation was the law of the land in the U.S. – I got off that airplane, knelt down, kissed the ground and said, “God Bless America!”

The Moral Dilemma of the Refugee Crisis

Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates recently told the BBC that the United States “should set a better example” by taking in more refugees. Gates said his home country “had the capacity” to follow the examples of Germany and Sweden, which were “to be congratulated” for welcoming migrants.”

Apparently, Mr. Gates was not aware of some of the headlines in German newspapers regarding migrants flooding into these countries.

Headlines such as these are becoming routine across Europe:

1) Muslim male “refugees” are gang raping women in Europe;
2) Germany shocked by Cologne New Year gang assaults on women;
3) Germany: 1,000 Muslims commit mass sexual assaults of women around Cologne train station

“German police have described a series of sexual assaults against women in Cologne on New Year’s Eve as ‘a completely new dimension of crime.’”

Townhall’s Katie Pavlich reported:

“Germany is facing a type of rape epidemic as progressive politicians continue to allow thousands of refugees, many of whom are military aged males, into the country. During the New Year’s Eve celebrations in the city of Cologne, dozens of Muslim men allegedly participated in rape mobs. They surrounded young women, touched them, raped them and stole their wallets and cell phones. Tensions surrounding how the situation is being handled are rising by the day.”

From ABC News:

Such activity in Germany has “fueled debate about the country’s ability to integrate large numbers of migrants, after police said that men who targeted dozens of women in the western city of Cologne appeared to be of “Arab or North African origin.”

From the New York Times:

“Two weeks ago the New York Times ran a story about the need to host classes in Norway and Denmark for Muslim men new to the country. The topic? Rape is wrong and unacceptable. The German region of Bavaria, the main entry point to Germany for asylum seekers, is already experimenting with such classes at a shelter for teenage migrants …”

According to one expert quoted by the Times, “Many refugees come from cultures that are not gender equal and where women are the property of men. We have to help them adapt to their new culture.”

All of this brings us back to Mr. Gates’ assertion that more Muslims should be allowed to migrate to America. Apparently, he is unaware of some extremely relevant comments by some Founding Fathers vis-a-vis America.

President John Adams said to the Massachusetts Militia in 1798: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. … Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

The John Adams Center explains, “Because the American republic is a free republic, therefore, it was designed for a religious people.”

In 1776, Adams wrote, “[I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand.”

It is in this context that we understand Adams, who had predicted the fall of the French Revolution in 1790 when he said, “I know not what to make of a republic of 30 million atheists.”

President George Washington said much the same thing in his Farewell Address: “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. … And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.”

Let me reiterate: It is a grave mistake, made by many, to think everyone thinks like we think –”we” being the people in Western cultures who have a tendency to judge the non-Western world according to our standards.

Ask the European countries why they are having to instruct the flood of immigrant men on how not to act toward women. Behavior we take for granted is apparently foreign to the Middle-Eastern men flooding the streets of Germany and France and other European countries.

According to the New York Times, Henry Ove Berg, who was Stavanger’s (Norway) police chief during the spike in rape cases, said he supported providing migrant sex education because “people from some parts of the world have never seen a girl in a miniskirt, only in a burqa.”

“When they get to Norway,” he added, “something happens in their heads.”

Two things must be firmly fixed and kept in mind. First, when the Founders spoke of religion, they were expressly and specifically referring to biblical Christianity. Secondly, the foundation of Western civilization is specifically the transcendent principles articulated throughout the Bible, not “religion” in general.

Absent the founding biblical principles of Western civilization, there are no universal standards of right and wrong – as evidenced by what is happening in the Middle East and European countries presently experiencing a flood of immigrants.

If you remove, judicially or otherwise, the basic biblical principles we take for granted in the West, how do you define anything as right or wrong?

Here we are now with ISIS running amok in the Middle East and multiple dictators eliminated – Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi and maybe soon even Syria’s Bashar al-Assad. Mr. Rogers they were not, but now we have opened the door for a terrorist organization that defies imagination. Why is this?

It is clearly evident that fomenting the earlier “Arab Spring” and subsequently replacing Middle East dictators, all designed to supposedly establish new democratic forms of government there, didn’t exactly work, despite the earlier reassurances from many experts in the West. The Western intelligentsia entertained high hopes for these new democratic forms of government. Everyone imagined a balanced and civil existence in that part of the world – between two Muslim factions who have hated each other, and warred against each other, for centuries?

In the West in general, and America in particular, we are accustomed to living in what are mistakenly called “democracies.” Despite the clamor for the same in the Middle East, the truth of the matter is, democracies simply can’t work in countries like Libya, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, etc.

The reasons are relatively simple; first and foremost, the inhabitants of these nations lack a pre-eminent virtue necessary to sustain a democratic form of government: individual self-governance. Self-governance is “the act of governing or exercising authority over one’s self.” The concept that people should be free to govern themselves is an incomprehensible truth to many. Secondly, the majority of these populations have no idea of even the concept of a democratic form of government.

The foundations of the freedoms enjoyed by the West are what we know as Judeo-Christian values, an integral and essential part of self-governance. Absent these values, what are the stepping stones to launch a revolutionary leap to something as radical as individual self-government?

Those countries where these perspectives are not an integral part of the societal and political infrastructure are prime candidates for dictatorships, as history demonstrates and an objective view of almost any political map will substantiate.

Pundits, experts and commentators who have forecast the dawn of a new Middle East full of democracies assume that people – who for decades (and in some case, centuries) have not only been subject to, but have in fact been active participants in their own subjugation – will immediately begin thinking and acting like “Westerners” who, for centuries, have never known anything but freedom.

The freedoms inherent in our Western forms of government are based on 1) the value of the individual and 2) responsible self-government. This implies individual responsibility. Without the diligent and consistent application of these principles, which, with the exception of Israel, are almost completely unknown in almost all Middle Eastern cultures, democracy and any variant thereof cannot survive.

The word that is probably thrown about more and understood less than any other word on the current political landscape is democracy. Hopeful, warm, comforting rhetoric to the contrary, democracy is, essentially, mob rule. There are no examples of a pure democracy in existence today because pure democracies simply don’t work. One of the most vivid demonstrations of this conflict of democracy is the French Revolution.

Certainly, the French monarchy of that day cannot be defended, but neither can the wild excesses of the democratic mobs carrying out guillotine justice. The consequences of failing to distinguish between a democracy and a republic leads almost immediately to a violent crisis.

The purpose of a republic is to allow for a cooling off period, a time to debate and consider the merits of any particular person or position. A true democracy, on the other hand, lacks this time of introspection and proceeds immediately to implementation, often by force. Absent the time for review and/or debate, a people can easily end up with a ruthless dictator in power.

Herein lies the genius of the American system. Individuals, elected as representatives – public servants – are given restricted powers and limited governing powers for designated amounts of time. These public servants, to continue to serve, must prove their commitment and adherence to the values of the self-governing individuals who elected them.

The most effective, efficient, stable, successful form of government for the greatest number of people in the last two centuries has not been a democracy, but the American republic. The secret? A majority of self-governing individuals, freely, openly and peacefully debating the issues and, without restraint, voting their consciences and moral values. Absent that, democracy can’t work. What we are witnessing now in the Middle East is evident of this truth.

As I contemplate 2016, a new year full of unknowns for us all, and consider writing future columns, I was inspired to revisit many of the incredible emails I have received over the years in response to prior columns. These responses convey the well-thought-out perspectives of many who care for the well-being and future of America:

Here are what some had to offer:

  • I am intelligence analyst and I bang my head on my desk daily when I hear people talk about how Islam can co-exist with the Western form of civilization.
  • I’m glad you’re out here trying to set the record straight on racism. (By the way, I’m white.) Unfortunately, for a few, racism has become a cash cow as well as a way to exploit black people for their own power grab. It’s just another form of slavery.
  • At long last, someone who understands that democracy can’t work in all those Arab countries.
  • The current administration knows what they are doing; the State Department knows that the end result is the rule of fundamental Islam.
  • The American republic is only a success to the degree that we follow Christian doctrine and obey God the Father’s laws.
  • Today we are watching a betrayal of Israel and a rapid falling of America into a 4th-world nation status.
  • Great article that exposes the fundamental liberal concepts that emphasize surface values but not a change in heart.
  • I think once a people decide to turn their back on God, their ability to tell truth from fantasy goes right out the window.
  • Your concept of self-governance being necessary as the foundation of any government is a real gem. How America needs to grasp the bigger picture! Indeed, it is basic to wisdom.
  • It has been shocking how “in your face” these leftist politicians have been and made even more so with the bought-and-paid-for media slaves.
  • Even though we lose in this age, what we do in His will find reward in the next.
  • Who decides what’s right and wrong? A truly wonderful question.
  • Why do black “leaders” and teachers fail to instruct young blacks on the information contained in your column? Do they really care more about power than truth?
  • Thanks for commonsense. It’s sad that has to be thanked these days, but we are mesmerized with fools. Keep it up. America needs saving.
  • Hopefully rational opinions like yours will get more air time and we will be able to slow the racial baiting that, unfortunately, even our president participates in.
  • All we need is faith in God and the willingness to again see one another, one and all, as just plain Americans.
  • This is really about bureaucrats who want all security but no responsibility.
  • Just downloaded your “Black Yellow Dogs” book. As a white man, I never gave any thought until now that maybe there’s been some revisionist history going on here concerning slavery.
  • I am glad to see you are stating some facts to our brothers. We as Christians must vote as how God see things based upon the Bible. God is clearly dividing people to find out where loyalties are, with God or with man.
  • We should do our best to go back to the basic ideals of our Constitution (which was clearly based on many of the precepts in God’s word). The Constitution brings American ideals together based on sound, basic principles of equal opportunity rather than splintering people according to unalterable things such as skin color, gender, sexual preference, etc. into self-serving shibboleths wielded by politicians for their own personal gain.
  • There will be national repentance, or there will be national death.
  • Thank you for sharing biblically sound truth from your heart.
  • I am concerned that all of us are becoming slaves to a government grown too large and powerful, in great part because our citizens have allowed it to happen. Perhaps we are witnessing Bible prophesy being fulfilled.
  • Before we point a finger at other nations or peoples to justify ourselves (and our causes), we should remember our ancestors (all races) enslaved one another. It was part of life. It was reality, but it was wrong. The irony is it is now being used to divide people who could otherwise come together to truly bring about change in the world.
  • I don’t understand how we’ve come to a point as a nation with so much divisiveness and hatred. Selfishness and ungodliness seem to rule today.
  • We need to realize that abandoning Israel in spirit – which is what this administration would do in a heartbeat were there no consequences – will lead to much pain and hurt here and consequentially around the world. What is done to Israel is done to us all.
  • I am in total agreement with your article and would like to remind you of a previous governmental program that once provided a worldly education and pride in one’s self and our nation. It was called the draft.
  • I overheard my pastor talking to a man who professed to be an atheist that it took more faith than the pastor had to believe in the stuff the atheist did. I think he hit the nail on the head. If there is no God, what are atheists afraid of?
  • I just finished commenting under your article titled, “Atheism is a religion.” Many times over the years, I have expressed that fact and been rebuffed for it by others on all sides of the matter. It’s great to see someone else emphasizing this point for a change.
  • As I look at the headlines, which report all sorts of strange behaviors, and then hear the voices of those who want to normalize all the forms of evil that lack no champions, I have to look hard to see the remnant of true patriots and godly people who are still holding to the course established by the founders of this republic.
  • I have taught government to homeschoolers for 25 years, and almost none of them understood that “we the people” are the sovereign and not the elected officials.
  • Thank you for braving the elements of today’s twisted views and lagging morals by bringing us hope through the truth. We are living in a world spinning out of control.

And last but not least …

  • A man who was a Holocaust survivor was explaining what an American was to him. He said, “You can move to Germany and become a citizen, but that does not make you German. You can move to France and become a citizen, but that does not make you French. You can move to Spain and become a citizen, but that does not make you Spanish. But, you can come to America and become a citizen and you become an American.” He said this with tears in his eyes. I will never forget it.
