HISTORY IGNORED BY THE AMERICAN MEDIA!

THE EVENT IN MANCHESTER LAST NIGHT IS THE REASON I  RUSHED TO POST THIS  VERY INTERESTING AND EYE OPENING ARTICLE. WE NOW HAVE A PRESIDENT LIKE THOMAS JEFFERSON!

 My friend, Ray Felske, is aware I have a burning desire to learn something every day. He and my old Boss, Phil Sizer, find things that drive me to learn more. The following factual piece of American history allows everyone to see how far America has digressed in protecting our people and freedoms. Please share this with every freedom loving American we have left. Today we are so dis-united I am unsure God can save America. At least we now have a real leader, Donald Trump, who for the first time since Reagan that is dedicated to bringing Americans together again.

              An Interesting piece of forgotten U.S. History

When Thomas Jefferson saw there was no negotiating with Muslims, he formed what is the now the Marines (sea going soldiers). These Marines were attached to U. S. Merchant vessels. When the Muslims attacked U.S. merchant vessels, they were repulsed by armed soldiers, but there is more.

The Marines followed the Muslims back to their villages and killed every man, woman, and child in the village. It didn’t take long for the Muslims to leave U.S. Merchant vessels alone. English and French merchant vessels started running up our flag when entering the Mediterranean to secure safe travel.

Why the Marine Hymn Contains the Verse “… to the shores of Tripoli.” This is very interesting and a must read piece of our history. It points out where we may be heading. Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago, the United States had declared war on Islam and Thomas Jefferson led the charge!

At the height of the 18th century, Muslim pirates (the “Barbary Pirates”) were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic. They attacked every ship in sight and held the crews for exorbitant ransoms. Those taken hostage were subjected to barbaric treatment and wrote heart-breaking letters home, begging their government and family members to pay whatever their Mohammedan captors demanded.

These extortionists of the high seas represented the North African Islamic nations of Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers – collectively referred to as the Barbary Coast – and presented a dangerous and unprovoked threat to the new American Republic.

Before the Revolutionary War, U.S. merchant ships had been under the protection of Great Britain. When the U.S. declared its independence and entered into war, the ships of the United States were protected by France. However, once the war was won, America had to protect its own fleets.

Thus, the birth of the U.S. Navy. Beginning in 1784, 17 years before he would become president, Thomas Jefferson became America’s Minister to France. That same year, the U.S. Congress sought to appease its Muslim adversaries by following in the footsteps of European nations who paid bribes to the Barbary States rather than engaging them in war.

In July of 1785, Algerian pirates captured American ships, and the Dye of Algiers demanded an unheard-of ransom of $60,000. It was a plain and simple case of extortion, and Thomas Jefferson was vehemently opposed to any further payments. Instead, he proposed to Congress the formation of a coalition of allied nations who together could force the Islamic states into peace. A disinterested Congress decided to pay the ransom.

In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Great Britain to ask by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved American citizens, and why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

The two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran that all nations who would not acknowledge their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

Despite this stunning admission of premeditated violence on non-Muslim nations, as well as the objections of many notable American leaders, including George Washington, who warned that caving in was both wrong and would only further embolden the enemy, for the following fifteen years the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages. The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to over 20 percent of the United States government annual revenues in 1800.

Jefferson was disgusted. Shortly after his being sworn in as the third President of the United States in 1801, the Pasha of Tripoli sent him a note demanding the immediate payment of $225,000 plus $25,000 a year for every year forthcoming. That changed everything.

Jefferson let the Pasha know, in no uncertain terms, what he could do with his demand. The Pasha responded by cutting down the flagpole at the American consulate and declared war on the United States. Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers immediately followed suit. Jefferson, until now, had been against America raising a naval force for anything beyond coastal defense, but, having watched his nation be cowed by Islamic thuggery for long enough, decided that it was finally time to meet force with force.

He dispatched a squadron of frigates to the Mediterranean and taught the Muslim nations of the Barbary Coast a lesson he hoped they would never forget. Congress authorized Jefferson to empower U.S. ships to seize all vessels and goods of the Pasha of Tripoli and to “cause to be done all other acts of precaution or hostility as the state of war would justify”.

When Algiers and Tunis, who were both accustomed to American cowardice and acquiescence, saw the newly independent United States had both the will and the right to strike back, they quickly abandoned their allegiance to Tripoli. The war with Tripoli lasted for four more years and raged up again in 1815. The bravery of the U.S. Marine Corps in these wars led to the line”…to the shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Hymn, and they would forever be known as “leathernecks” for the leather collars of their uniforms, designed to prevent their heads from being cut off by the Muslim scimitars when boarding enemy ships.

Islam, and what its Barbary followers justified doing in the name of their prophet and their god, disturbed Jefferson quite deeply. America had a tradition of religious tolerance. In fact Jefferson, himself, had co-authored the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, but fundamentalist Islam was like no other religion the world had ever seen. A religion based on supremacy, whose holy book not only condoned but mandated violence against unbelievers, was unacceptable to him. His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose an even greater threat to the United States.

This should concern every American. That Muslims have brought about women-only classes and swimming times at taxpayer-funded universities and public pools; that Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged; Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces because they offend Islamist sensibilities; ice cream has been discontinued at certain Burger King locations because the picture on the wrapper looks similar to the Arabic script for Allah; public schools are pulling pork from their menus. But in turn several American companies have placed the Muslim symbol on their products in the name of Allah; on and on and on and on.

It’s death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across America. By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what is really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our own culture, the United States is cutting its own throat with a politically correct knife, and helping to further the Islamists agenda. Sadly, it appears that today America’s leaders would rather be politically correct than victorious!

If you have any doubts about the above information, Google “Thomas Jefferson vs. the Muslim World.”  ANON

I really wish I knew who gathered this historical material so I can give credit for their work. Now that American History is no longer taught in our schools future Americans will never know how this country was formed. Now we have the Democrats rushing to bring as many Muslims as possible as immigrants. They will never be Americans and they are as dangerous as they were in the 1800’s. The Democrats and the spoiled brats I wrote about in my last article would lose a 2017 war with Cuba. These supposed Americans who hide their faces to destroy property and maim other Americans have no deep love for freedoms and are nothing but gutless cowards.  C Brewer  

Harvard Graduate??????

Harvard educated First Lady Michelle Obama reminded attendees of a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born in America. 

The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C                                                                      

She said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence, “It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history, and like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American.”                                                

Excuse me?                         

Did she actually mean that those who signed the Declaration of Independence and participated in the drafting of the Constitution were not born in America?  

Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania.

Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison were born in Virginia. 

John Adams was born in Massachusetts.                                              

Only eight of the 56 were not born in America.                         

Surely she knew this.                                               

But, then again, maybe not. After all, is she really a Harvard Graduate?  

“Life’s tough, Pilgrim, it’s tougher when you are stupid”. John Wayne                                       

I received this message from an unquestionable source and it reinforces my perception that our First Lady must have studied “Harvard Beets” instead of American history anywhere. Even if one of her supposedly highly educated and expensive staff prepared her speech, a Harvard graduate would have known it was just another lie to confuse new citizens. In fact the new citizens should have known this if they are qualified to be Americans.   

If she did graduate from Harvard I question whether I would recommend their school to anyone. I am sure biased newscasters from MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, Juan Williams, Bob Bekel and Alan Colmes will refute this story, if ever asked. Well maybe not as they all may also be Harvard graduates. If any of them ever graduated from anywhere might be a better question? Most likely they also work for the national Democratic Party.

Our First Lady practiced law before her law license was revoked. God help the clients she serviced. Mull this thought over as it has several possible scenarios you might come up with. Lying must be a prime required subject in every law school and everyone in Washington today did not graduate from Harvard. The all do pass the test of being proficient liars.

Hillary will do much better with all of the national networks as they all will be owned by the Clinton Foundation by then. I hear they are bidding on buying four seats on the Supreme Court from the Democratic National Committee. She will be able to add a couple of more Progressive-Liberals in the next 8 years and who cares. I do!

Unless you are a Progressive, Liberal or Democrat can you think of a reason for not sharing this?

Neither could I.
