A Sad But Fair Ruling

Posted in Politics on July 30th, 2010

Judge Susan Bolton, United States District Court for the District of Arizona As pretty much everyone who’s even marginally aware of American politics knows, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Wednesday, halted implementation of the parts of the law that require police to determine the status of people they stop and think are in the country illegally. She also forbade the state from charging anyone for a new crime of failing to possess immigration documents. Many people believe and are eager to say, either with glee or anger, that this is a victory for President Obama and a defeat for Arizona.

It was not, however, truly a victory for the Obama Regime, nor was it a defeat in Arizona’s defensive battle against the crime and destruction wreaked by the illegal immigrants invading from Mexico. All that actually happened was that Judge Bolton failed to hand Obama’s legal myrmidons a total defeat.

For Americans the preliminary injunction against enforcing some of the more active and probably more effective parts of Arizona’s SB 1070 is sad and more than a little frustrating, but it is a fair and practical measure for the court to take. With several lawsuits pending against Arizona’s new immigration law in addition to President Obama’s attack upon it, it makes sense to block enforcement of those parts of SB 1070 that would most likely result in the legal chaos and morass of wrongful imprisonment and civil rights lawsuits resulting from their being enforced and then overturned after they had been applied to people.

The Wrong Answer

Posted in Politics on July 29th, 2010

Crack CocaineThe Liberals in Congress led by Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) have passed the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 which will greatly reduce the sentencing guidelines for possession of crack cocaine and completely removes the five-year mandatory minimum prison term for first-time possession of crack cocaine.

Even the Republicans, sadly browbeaten by the incessant fraudulent claims of racism from the Left and its minority tenants, agreed to support it. So it now just awaits the signature of America’s First Black President in order to become the law.

It should come as no surprise to any American that the Democrat-controlled Congress, equally steeped in the pro-drug culture and ethno-guiltism, when faced with a very real problem chose the wrong answer to it and did so because that answer fit into their ethno-guiltism and cynical and desperate desire to curry the Black vote during the lead up to the 2010 Congressional midterm elections.

A saner and less ethno-guiltist governing body would have increased the penalty for powder cocaine to match or more closely resemble that for crack cocaine, especially given the worsening, violent, and destabilizing situation in Mexico right right now.

But it’s almost axiomatic that the Liberals will always support and endorse the wrong answer to real problems – when they even honestly understand the problem at all.

American Shari’a?

Posted in Politics, Religion, Society on July 29th, 2010

Liberals and various other dhimmi traitors have repeated ad nauseum how the Muslims are not to trying to and could not instate Shari’a law within the US. They have of course been sadly proven wrong. Shari’a law has already come to the US wrapped in multiculturalism and carrying a diversity training manual.

It’s grim day for America indeed when judges in our own courts betray our country and that is exactly what happened recently in New Jersey.

It’s really just a twist on a horror story that is at least as old as Islam.

A 17 year-old Muslim girl from Morocco was coerced into an arranged marriage to another Moroccan Muslim who she had never before met. Later, due to America’s lax immigration policies, they settled in Bayonne, NJ where the man’s mother came to live with them.

Some three months later the Muslim male’s comprehensive emotional and physical abuse began. His repeated raping of the girl, reported as a being a finale to his physical abuse sessions, began shortly thereafter and were apparently punitive in nature.

A sad but all too common story among Muslims, but this particular story has a twist that makes it worth mentioning. The girl, taking advantage of having been relocated to America, worked up the courage to leave her “husband,” filed charges her abuser and rapist and took it to court.

That course of action proved less than effective. The judge decided that because the rapist was Muslim and she was “married” to it under Shari’a law it could not be considered to have either abused or raped her because it was a Muslim and abusing and raping one’s wife was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited. The judge in question also refused to allow a restraining order to be filed against her rapist.

Details from the NJ Appellate Court:

While recognizing that defendant had engaged in sexual relations with plaintiff against her expressed wishes in November 2008 and on the night of January 15 to 16, 2009, the judge did not find sexual assault or criminal sexual conduct to have been proven. He stated:

This court does not feel that, under the circumstances, that this defendant had a criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault or to sexually contact the plaintiff when he did. The court believes that he was operating under his belief that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited.

After acknowledging that this was a case in which religious custom clashed with the law, and that under the law, plaintiff had a right to refuse defendant’s advances, the judge found that defendant did not act with a criminal intent when he repeatedly insisted upon intercourse, despite plaintiff’s contrary wishes.

issue of whether a final restraining order should be entered. He found such an order unnecessary, vacated the temporary restraints previously entered in the matter and dismissed plaintiff’s domestic violence action.

The one saving grace is that the rot apparently hasn’t spread to far throughout the NJ courts system. Judges Cuff, Payne and Miniman of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division overturned the ruling by the Muslim-loving dhimmi filth presiding in the lower court.

The trial judge found as a fact that defendant committed conduct that constituted a sexual assault and criminal sexual contact, but that defendant did not have the requisite criminal intent in doing so. His conclusion in this respect cannot be sustained. N.J.S.A. 2C:2-2c(3) establishes the principle that criminal statutes that do not designate a specific culpability requirement should be construed as requiring knowing conduct.

A person acts knowingly with respect to the nature of his conduct or the attendant circumstances if he is aware that his conduct is of that nature, or that such circumstances exist . . .

[N.J.S.A. 2C:2-2b(2).]

Defendant’s conduct in engaging in non-consensual sexual intercourse was unquestionably knowing, regardless of his view that his religion permitted him to act as he did.

As the judge recognized, the case thus presents a conflict between the criminal law and religious precepts. In resolving this conflict, the judge determined to except defendant from the operation of the State’s statutes as the result of his religious beliefs. In doing so, the judge was mistaken.

While I’m gratified that the Appellate Court reaffirmed its commitment to America by reversing the lower court’s foul ruling, blithely issuing a terse statement that the judge was mistaken is hardly sufficient at all.

The judge in question was not mistaken; he was Wrong and Evil. This is proven by his placing the the cultural proclivities and beliefs of the cultists of the Pedophile Prophet, Muhammad over American law. The judge has by his own actions shown himself to be a traitor and an active enemy of America – one made more dangerous to our women and children by his insinuating himself into a place of authority within the New Jersey Family Courts system.

Obviously, the first course of action that Americans should take is the extermination of the “husband” in question. Following that necessary cleansing the dhimmi judge who decided that it was legally permissible for a Muslim to abuse and repeatedly rape his “wife” because doing so followed the tenets of Islam should be hunted down and summarily executed.

Sadly, such actions, though right and proper in this instance, are forbidden by our laws. 🙁 It would require truly committed patriots, preferably without families to support, who were willing to sacrifice themselves in order to visit the appropriate retribution upon the Muslim vermin and the vile and traitorous judge in question.

Sacrifice would be necessary since the law must be upheld. Anyone who went outside the law to punish these filth must be willing to surrender themselves for trial and conviction afterward.

Worse, any reprisal or retribution has been made greatly more difficult because the Appellate Court impounded the records of the matter, publishing only the redacted ruling that is cited in this post . The case is merely cited as S.D. v. M.J.D [A-6107-08T2] and the details of original case, Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, Family Part, Hudson County, Docket No. FV-09-1792-09 is not available. This means that it will be very hard to identify, much less locate, either the Muslim rapist or the traitorous dhimmi judge.

I will, however, continue to research the matter and will post any identification, location, and/or contact information for the rapist or judge that I can find as an update to this post. That way Americans will have the ability to follow their respective consciences in this matter and to visit whatever retribution they feel is appropriate upon these two vermin.

An Untold Hope

Posted in Politics, Society on July 27th, 2010

There may be some hope for America after all, but it’s an untold hope since their are far too many people in the government, the Leftist media, and the “Black Community” who have done and will continue to do anything in their power to ensure such hope remains untold.

Star Parker - President of the Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education (CURE)Despite the rantings of Liberals and those minorities that base their fame, power, and wealth upon race-baiting antics, the beliefs and desires of the majority of Black population do not seem fall in line behind these jabbering rabble-rousers.

They are reported to have a far different and more honest, introspective, and realistic view of the causes of- and cures or ameliorations for any economic troubles that they might be facing.

Their views also seem to fall directly inline with those of Whites in similar economic straits.

In a recent editorial nationally syndicated columnist, author, and President of the Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) Star Parker says what the grievance-mongers and their Liberal media enablers don’t want Americans to hear:

The NAACP says it was snookered by Fox News on the Shirley Sherrod story.

I say weve all been snookered by the NAACP.

The NAACP has shown that those who have written this organization off as irrelevant are wrong. It demonstrated this past week that if it so chooses it can dominate the national discussion with its racial agenda, regardless of what the real pressing issues of national concern may be.

The accusation about Tea Party racism is ridiculous. But even if you dont think its ridiculous, is this the discussion we need to be having when national unemployment hovers at ten percent, and when black unemployment is closer to 15%, double that of whites?

Now, of course, we should be talking about racism if this is what is driving black unemployment. But is it?

I dont think so. Nor do most blacks.

In January of this year, well into our recession, and well into the emergence of the Tea Party movement, the Pew Research Center surveyed black attitudes.

In answer to the question, When blacks dont make progress, who or what is to blame?, 52% of blacks responded that blacks themselves are mostly responsible, and 34% said racism. This is the reverse of how blacks responded to this question just 15 years ago, when 56% said that racism was the impediment to black progress.

In the same survey, blacks responded almost identically as whites to the question of whether success in life is determined by forces beyond ones control or whether everyone has the power to succeed.

Seventy seven percent of blacks and 82% of whites said that everyone has the power to succeed and 16% of blacks and 12% whites said success is determined by forces beyond ones control.

And when blacks were asked in this same survey about the main problems facing black families, the response was overwhelmingly exactly the same as the general result of the Gallup poll of last week. Jobs.

So, Americans of all colors today generally feel responsible for their own lives and the main concern of most is the sick state of our economy.

From what I can see Star Parker was referring to the 2007 Pew Research Center study on racial attitudes. It was a solid and hopeful study which I’ve referenced here before. Though, even then, it was in the context of disgust and borderline disillusionment.

Thankfully, Parker’s editorial goes a fair distance in counterbalancing that disgust and disillusionment. It’s heartening – and a bit sobering – to be so eloquently reminded that the caricature that the MSM prefers to paint of the Blacks in America is not necessarily indicative of their real attitudes. Only a minority, albeit a large if shrinking one – of the Blacks have been successfully indoctrinated by the Liberals and the race-baiting grievance-mongers that act as their overseers.

But of course the hope for America – and, frankly, for the Blacks within it – that Star Parker offers up is a largely untold hope. The Liberal media would only report upon it if they could luck into or arrange for someone of the ilk of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, or the newer “leadership” of the NAACP to attack Parker for being an “Oreo.” Hence, aside from a few outlets, this will remain an untold hope.

If you’re interested in finding out more about Star Parker’s views on the state of “Black Community” and the effects that the American government’s intervention in their lives has had, I highly recommend her book, Uncle Sam’s Plantation. I’ve included a link to it at Amazon and an excerpt from the official review to make things easier.

In Uncle Sam’s Plantation, Star Parker eloquently offers five simple yet profound steps that will allow the nation’s poor to go from entitlement and slavery to empowerment and freedom. By way of example Parker shares her own amazing journey up from the lower rungs of the economic system and addresses the importance of extending the free market system to this neglected group of people. Emphasizing personal initiative, faith, and responsibility, she walks readers toward releasing the hold poverty has over their lives.

Differing Priorities

Posted in Society on July 25th, 2010

Some people – mostly the Liberal multiculturists – would have the besieged peoples of the Civilized World believe that they must not only tolerate but accept as valid the cultures of other peoples, even those of the more feral populations which based upon quasi-values that are antithetical to Humanity and Civilized life. Their primary postulate seems to be that our similarities outweigh our differences.

I all honesty their postulate is not entirely fallacious; Mankind and our near-kin are, at a base level, more alike than we are different. We laugh, we cry, we love, we hate – and, if we are sufficiently provoked by people’s deeds, we become outraged.

Muslim Outrage

Muslims Just have Differing Priorities

It really just boils down to a culture’s or population’s priorities, but you can tell a great deal about a culture’s or population’s worth and validity by those priorities – especially what outrages them enough that they will act upon that outrage.
