 IS THE APRIL  1ST NEW CALIFORNIA MINIMUM WAGE A POLITICAL BURNT OFFERNG, as the saying, "Be careful what you wish for, rings loudly, like a Sunday church bell harbinger of tribulations, heralding in a new time, day or era? Some may find themselves both benefits challenged and in the unemployment line. 

According to, Richard B. McKenzie,  professor of economics emeritus in the Merage Business School at the University of California, whose article, California Dreaming: The effects of California's "Fast Food" minimum wage, ' Faced with an above-market minimum wage, employers will be pressed to offset the money-wage hike with savings in labor costs that can come with replacement of covered workers by uncovered “non-human workers”—kiosk order takers and “burger bots.” These “tech workers” have an enviable market-wage advantage over their human competitors: Their legal California minimum wage is hard to beat: $0.00!'

Furthermore, McKenzie states that the rise in wages will mean losses of benefits, as many minimum-wage workers belong to multiple welfare programs, and cites agreeably with economist Craig Richardson by saying, this leaves ' covered minimum-wage workers facing higher marginal tax rates that are higher than the marginal income tax rates paid by the rich—even higher than 100 percent (which means that some covered minimum-wage California workers on welfare will lose more in benefits than the money they gain from the $4 increase in their minimum wage), an unseen consequence that hardly their incentives to continue working. '

Interestingly enough, McKenzie states, as all California companies were already, in order to operate effectively, forced to pay more than required, the anticipated impact of this new wage increase is likely to do more harm than good--- many minimum wage earners were already getting more than $16, or more before the new mandate went into effect.

In Conclusion, McKenzie hypothesizes a political motivation for the April 1st wage increase mandate as he said, ' Nevertheless, many state politicians continue to favor minimum wage increases. The reasons are not as clear as may be thought: “Politicians want to help poor workers” or “They have simply not appreciated the economics of the minimum wage in competitive markets.” These are not inconsequential points, but they seem too obvious and facile for my academic proclivities. I am inclined to believe that both proponents and opponents of minimum-wage hikes find the political forces behind minimum-wage hikes more powerful than the economic forces. But that is hardly a comfortable admission.'

The Royal Maharlika Has Issued a Statement Regarding the Unauthorized Use of Royal Titles and Fraudulent Enthronement

The Royal Legal Advisor and Royal Spokesperson of the Royal Maharlika,
Datu Jordan Bowen, Esq has spoken on the ongoing viral posts on social media regarding unauthorized use of royal titles and fraudulent enthronement.

In his statement he said:

"It has been brought to our attention that on March 22 this year, a “coronation” was held at Gawad Pilipino, Euro TV in Manila, Philippines, during which, NGUYEN THANH HANG, a Vietnamese citizen, was “coronated” as a Princess of the Royal House of Maharlika. 

This event in association with EURO TV MANILA, organized by BHAE AMOR ISHAZY MASTURA (BAINOT MAMASASULOG) and LY THAO KY (BUI THI PHUOC THAO), and those held prior to March 22, were held without the consent and authorization of The Royal Maharlika, by individuals who are by no means connected with, or authorized in any capacity to represent the Royal House. 

The Royal Maharlika wishes to publicly disassociate itself as a Royal House from BHAE AMOR ISHAZY MASTURA (BAINOT MAMASASULOG) a citizen of the Philippines, and LY THAO KY (BUI THI PHUOC THAO) a citizen of Vietnam and confirms that neither of these individuals hold any genuine Royal titles or status, despite their misleading assertations.  

As a Royal House, we endeavor to uphold the values, traditions, and culture of our forefathers and that of our people. In protecting such values, traditions, and noble culture, The Royal Maharlika does not bestow Royal titles (Prince, Princess, King, or Queen) to individuals who are not of Filipino descent. Furthermore, we strictly object to the commercialization of Royal titles and work closely with other Royal Houses to safeguard the integrity of the Royal lineage across the Philippines. 

The Royal Maharlika does not recognize, endorse, or condone the actions of EURO TV MANILA, BHAE AMOR ISHAZY MASTURA (BAINOT MAMASASULOG) and LY THAO KY (BUI THI PHUOC THAO and here forth dissolves all Royal Titles bestowed illegitimately on March 22, including that of NGUYEN THANH HANG as Princess of the Royal House of Maharlika. 

Moreover, The Royal Maharlika as a Royal House in the Philippines does not have any embassies, branches, or associations in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. A list of embassies and branches of the Royal House and its Charity, We Care For Humanity, will be issued in the coming days. 

The Royal Maharlika endeavors to assure the public of our steadfast dedication to justice and our unwavering intolerance to the unjust. Your understanding and support are greatly appreciated as we work to protect the honor and reputation of our Royal institution."

The Royal Maharlika has collected the following posts containing the said fraudulent activities against the royal house.

Rightful Heir to the Throne, ZULKARNAIN MASTURA KUDARAT VI, Enthroned as the 26th Legitimate Supreme Sultan of Magindanao

Despite numerous aspirants vying for the title of Supreme Sultan of Maguindanao, the position has already been rightfully claimed by His Majesty Sultan Abdulaziz Zulkarnain Mastura Kudarat VI. He wasn’t only appointed as the legitimate successor by the late Sultan Salem but was also the popular choice of the Maguindanao people and hails from an unbroken line of Sultans since Sultan Muhammad Dipatuan Kudarat who reigned the Sultanate of Maguindanao from 1625 to 1671.

The enthronement took place last 14th of January during the Taazi’ah/Kanduli for the late 25th Supreme Sultan, Abdulaziz Guiwan Salem Mastura Kudarat V.  Flooded by thousands of people, the auspicious event was attended by big personalities from local and abroad including traditional leaders, politicians, religious leaders, tribal groups, representatives from 26 principalities of Mindanao: Municipalities of Palembang, Kalamansig, Bagumbayan, Sultan Kudarat, Matanog, Sultan Mastura, Maitum, Kiamba, Maasin, Kabacan, Pikit, Pagalungan, Datu Osin Sinsuat, Datu Blah Sinsuat, Dau Abdullah Sangki, Polomok, Isulan, Parang, SKP, Lebak, Kalamnsig and Labangan; Cities of Cotabato, General Santos and Marbel; and officers and men of the 6th infantry Division (KAMPILAN) PA AFP, Central Cotabato.

The Sultanate’s Cabinet members have recently revealed plans for two additional coronation ceremonies this year. The second ceremony will take place in Cotabato City on March 9th, extending its reach to the entire Mindanao region. The third and most significant coronation is scheduled to occur in October at the WCH Royal Summit in Manila. This event will host a multitude of international monarchs, dignitaries, and United Nations representatives, rendering it an extraordinary and memorable occasion.

The Crown Prince of Maguindanao, Datu Muamar (Mama) Mastura, has disclosed the order of succession of the Sultanate, as decreed by their late father, Sultan Guiwan Mastura Kudarat IV. “According to the last testament, after Sultan Salem, Datu Nain is to take over as the Sultanate's leader, thereby ensuring the unbroken tradition of succession. This dying wish of my brother, Sultan Salem has been upheld, and Datu Nain is the rightful heir to the throne.” His Royal Highness Datu Mama added, “We have recently discovered that a number of individuals, including some of our own relatives who have benefited from our father's kindness and compassion, are plotting to usurp the throne from us. Despite our family's relentless efforts to fortify the Sultanate, these individuals are driven by a desire for greater power and influence. Nonetheless, the truth about their intentions is widely known throughout Mindanao.” 

Renowned humanitarian and founder of international charity organization- We Care for Humanity (WCH), Queen Mariam Torres Mastura vowed to help ensure that the Sultanate emerges stronger than ever before. “As the crowned Bai Mompong sa Magindanaw, it is my duty to support my brother, the Supreme Sultan, in preserving the Sultanate and its goals.
