Beheading Children Beneath The Black Flag

Qur’an, Surah 8:12 – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”  Matthew 24:9 – “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” There is an unambiguous contrast drawn between those two statements of faith. In one, ostensibly fundamentalist words being used by groups like Islamic State (aka ISIS, ISIL) and others to justify and motivate their persecution and butchery of Christians in Iraq and elsewhere. In the other, prescient words of warning to those whose faith… Keep Reading

Kids Want Big Gov’s Fingers Out Of Their Food

In 2010 the Healthy-Hunger Free Kids Act (HHFKA) was passed by Congress with the ambition of fighting childhood obesity, a battle Michelle Obama has vowed to fight head on.  The act addresses the unhealthy eating habits of public school students and planned to make their lunches healthier with more whole grains, fruits, vegetables, with lean protein and low-fat dairy while  cutting back on sugar, fat and sodium, according to the Fact Sheet on the USDA’s website for the HHFKA.  A seeming act of nobility passed in a bipartisan manner by congress, what could go wrong, besides the fact that students… Keep Reading

The Lawyers’ Guild

Last month thousands of recent law school graduates sat for a bar examination in their chosen state of practice. They were not undertaking a harmless rite of passage but overcoming a malicious obstacle: an artificial barrier to entry in the form of occupational licensure. Barriers to entry are restrictions on access to or participation in markets or vocations. Occupational licensure is a type of barrier to entry that regulates professions by requiring certification and licensing in the manner of medieval guilds. Medicine and law are perhaps the most recognizable professions to require their practitioners to obtain and maintain licenses. The… Keep Reading

Rand Paul And The Civil Rights Act Of 1964

With Rand Paul being the current front runner in the 2016 GOP Presidential race, while also being the face of the anti-establishment wing in politics, it is perfectly understandable for the media to try and discredit him by any means necessary. Even if it means distorting the truth and further discrediting mainstream journalism. For the past four years, MSNBC has had a track record of discussing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with Rand Paul. First, it was when he was running for US Senate in Kentucky. Rand Paul and MSNBC journalist Rachel Maddow clashed over whether private businesses had the… Keep Reading

Redefining Marriage Transforms Society

Note: Opinions expressed in this article are solely those of the author and do not represent the views of Liberty Conservatives as an organization. It is deeply troubling and disappointing that as a culture, we’ve now arrived at the point in which a person who believes in the importance and cultural significance of traditional marriage (1 man + 1 woman = marriage), a position even Barack Obama shared until his recent “evolution”, is now expected to defend their position on the grounds that it is discriminatory, bigoted and homophobic. During the 2008 campaign, at a forum held by Pastor Rick Warren at the Saddleback Church in California, then-Senator Obama declared: “I believe that marriage is between a man… Keep Reading
