Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

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  

Presidents I’ve Known!

My friend Jim Heck sent me this message I found fascinating and a period I remember vividly. My brother did two years in Viet Nam and retired to be humiliated by peace movement that allowed the military who served to be harassed instead of the politicians. This resulted in his death at 55 being caused by the Clintons, Kerry and the idiots who blamed the troops for the war rather than LBJ and the bankers. I hope you enjoy this earthy message by someone who also suffered the harassment I am sure my brother did. I hope you enjoy this as much as this old Navy Veteran has.   C Brewer

Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine. I enlisted with LBJ and saw just what a Democrat cluster flock was all about.

I went to Vietnam and saw how we were constantly and incessantly bombarded with micro management from Washington that got thousands of military people killed. I sometimes wonder if I’ll get to heaven, but if I go below, I’m sure I’ll still be a few hundred floors above Robert McNamara, LBJ, John Kerry, Jane Fonda, and yes, even the “hero” John McCain.

After Johnson “abdicated” rather than having his buns waxed, I lived through Nixon who was hawkish but allowed the generals (and there WERE a few real generals back then versus now) run the show. He was so out of touch that he never knew North Vietnam was about to surrender when the Paris Accord was presented.

Only God could help us after Gerald Ford was beaten by Jimmy Peanuts who’d been funded by Saudi money. The military was turned into Section 8 and even the White House suffered the austerity.

Then the light began to shine and Ronald Reagan swept into the fray. He not only loved the country and the military, they

Loved him back. Esprit d ’corps was off the scale during his presidency. The Liberals were slowly turning into socialists, however, and about this time all the draft dodgers of the 1960’s who’d been given amnesty by Jimmy Peanuts were turning out college graduates with degrees in socialism.

Bush 1 was an enigma from the CIA and though he never did much either way, he NEVER DID MUCH EITHER WAY.

Welcome to Bill Clinton. Clinton spent most of his two terms wagging the dog and creating the Oral Office, sending a bomber to blow up Quaddafi’s tent and killing a goat or two, while allowing the UN to set up the infamous Black Hawk Down situation. He made history by becoming only the second president to be impeached.

I actually felt sorry for Bush 2. He was doomed to infamy from the start. He thought most of America was still the rah rah patriots of WWII when they were simply socialists waiting to feed him to the sharks.

Then there came the Manchurian Candidate with a faked (OK Democrats, let’s say “of questionable origin” to assuage your PC brains) birth certificate, who’d gotten a free ride through college under a foreign student exemption, and whose college records and complete life history had been sealed. (We know more about Thomas Jefferson’s illegitimate children than we do about Obama, Michelle, OR their two kids.) From his inaugural address, he slandered America and within days had begun to encourage dissention of the races as well as slandering police who “acted stupidly.” That was mild to the situation that would come in doubling the national debt from what had been built by ALL THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS COMBINED, feeding us baloney about how Muslims built this country, and nationalizing American industries. Fueled by George Soros’ money and using the Air Force fleet as his personal charters, he appointed malcontents and traitors into positions of authority. He trashed the Constitution by installing “czars” (interesting he chose a title like that) to bypass Congressional authority. By that time, Congress was completely corrupt on both sides of the aisle. No one had cojones to impeach this charlatan.

Mysteriously, the lone outspoken conservative Supreme Court Justice suddenly dies in his sleep at an Obama pal’s hunting lodge and the Supreme Court is evenly split. Finally, Congress shows some nerve and rejects Obama’s nomination. The Libtards aren’t worried because the fix is in. Soros has paid demonstrators to cause turmoil at all the Republican gatherings, Obama concedes that

Illegal aliens should vote as they won’t be prosecuted, and Soros-manufactured voting machines are caught switching votes in certain precincts. Hillary has cheated her way to the nomination and her lies are completely ignored by the brainwashed minions of sycophants who follow her.

But a shocking thing happened on the way to the forum. Middle America had had enough and although the pollsters and the pipers tried to convince them not even to bother to vote, they were fed up with the denizens of the swamp. It was time. Florida was designated a “swing” state ignoring that all those old retirees living in St. Petersburg, and the fed up Cuban Americans of Miami weren’t interested in their platform.

Ohio and Pennsylvania, where coal production was blacklisted and where Obama had ridiculed them for “clinging to their Bibles and their guns,” lay awaiting this supposed “landslide” Hillary vote and creamed it. The Socialist world of the Democratic Party disintegrated. An American who expressed unbridled love of country and respect for police, firemen, and military steam rolled across the heartland and the liberals realized their scheme was trashed. A CONSTITUTIONALIST would be nominated to the Supreme Court and if the hag who’d claimed to retire if Trump were elected would actually leave, the Supreme Court would have a massive majority of CONSTITUTIONALISTS for the next 40-50 years.

Now, the same party who’d ridiculed Trump on his comments about the election being rigged, started screaming that the election was rigged. They even advocated having the election repeated. They created mobs that burned and pillaged, stopped traffic, threatened murder, batter and rape of Trump supporters, and became the anarchists that the socialist dream thrives upon. They run like castrated pigs for safe zones and use diaper pins as their national symbol.

This is exactly what happens when political correctness takes over and participation trophies are awarded to everyone. They can’t conceive how disgusting and subservient they have become. Donald Trump may NOT be the best person for the job, but he’s such a welcome respite from the wimps who’ve been running the swamp that it’s refreshing to see. At the very least, Donald Trump derailed the Socialist train and bought us precious time. If he only does half of what he’s promised, we’ll still be legions ahead of where Obama has dragged us. Already countries who held us in contempt are lining up to be found in the favor of America.

So for you liberal lurkers and you scared fence-sitters, kiss off. You had your big hurrah and now your party is over. For you staunch Republicans in office, don’t gloat so much yourselves. You’ve been put on notice by the American people that we’re fed up with ALL YOU BUMS and if you don’t start putting America first, you do so at your own peril.

You might want to buy a copy of George McGovern’s autobiography and see how shocking and humbling it can be for a professional politician to have to try to find legitimate work once he falls from grace. This election was pure, unadulterated AMERICAN. Hillary got beaten and AMERICA WON THE ELECTION. You can claim he’s not “your president” all you want, but unless you forfeit your American citizenship, YES HE IS!!!! Go cry a river some place they need water.

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!

WISDOM FROM HISTORY!

My friend Alan Fitts shared these historical statements of fact that will prove that the problems we have today are not new. We just have to suffer with them over and over to wake up newer generations.  C Brewer

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

Neither could I.

OBAMA WON THE WAR!

This is the most important article I have ever written and it will be judged as insane by the current leadership and even some in my own family. I previously documented my prediction that we would face another Civil War involving Americans again killing Americans to save the Constitution and our freedoms. Well, the war is over today and I was wrong. What you are about to read is about the future and only history will judge my perceptions and predictions. The Senate rule change enacted today has so many possible power possibilities it will take months to evaluate. This article is to pin point immediate predictions to watch happen.

The second American civil war ended today without a single shot being fired. Harry Reid made a decision today that will be the end of our Constitution, that Obama was elected to destroy. Thomas Jefferson’s Senate rules have prevented the powerful states representatives or zealots like Reid and President Obama from ram-rodding major Constitutional changes since 1789. Reid and Obama screamed like they were stabbed when the Republicans proposed this identical rules change in 2006

The Progressive-Liberal leaders, including many Republicans like McCain, have won the right to make the federal government responsible for every facet of your freedoms and rights. They are now convinced they have enough power now to win a majority of American voters to stay in power long enough to make every change they have dreamed about for over 100 years.  

Their next action will be to assure that they have more than enough votes to prevent the Republicans from possibly ever regaining power again. They will quickly enact legislation to provide citizenship or at least voting rights for the 13,000,000 plus illegal immigrants now in America. This will be the end of elections deciding anything and our Republic form of government that so many have fought and died to protect.

Next, it would not surprise me to see the Senate vote to repeal the two term limit for anyone being President of the United States. I also believe the Senate will vote to increase the power of the President to enact laws and regulations without Congressional oversight or control. They will enact legislation or increase Presidential power to spend money without the approval of the House of Representatives. In fact the future could be to dissolve the House and enact all legislation from the senate where the powerful states can band together and ignore the smaller state’s needs.

I believe that state’s rights will eventually be replaced with government regulations and the need for State Legislatures will end.

Today America enters a new era of super power. This change was cloaked as a way to stop the Republicans from questioning the political appointments and stacking certain courts with Progressive-Liberal judges. They did not include appointment of Supreme Court Justices to try to hide from criticism. The reason is there is no opening to fill in the Supreme Court today. It really does not matter as they can vote to include Justices when an opening occurs.

Remember, they are smart enough to be cautious in exposing this power grab and creating too much too fast. They control the media and need for them distract attention away from this as they have for five years now. They can now finish stacking the appeal courts in time to retain control of the Senate in 2014 by voiding the voter identification laws passed by over 20 states. This will maintain the ability for the illegals, convicted criminals, Acorn multiple ballots, Mickey Mouse and the dead to continue to decide who wins elections, one last time. That is all they need to finish transforming the United States into whatever they desire.

You can bet I will continue to try to save our freedoms and rights as long as we have the First Amendment to the Constitution. It will be easy to repeal this Amendment and it will happen someday.

DEMOCRACY or a REPUBLIC, WHAT’S YOU’RE CHOICE?

I had intended to write three different articles on this subject but it became so intertwined I feel this may be long but it should be educational. It certainly was to me.

Every American who reads this article should be familiar with a “Republic” and its differences with a Democracy. Unfortunately the welfare society is growing to the proportions that they will control the destiny of the ones who actually work for a living and soon. These people probably understand the differences but with the everything free, soak it to the rich and the racially charged atmosphere created by our own President, they don’t really care. I will assure you the current President and his lackeys in Congress, the Supreme Court, main stream media, Progressives and union leaders don’t want them to understand. 

Democracy

Rule by Omnipotent Majority. In a Democracy, the Individual, and any group of Individuals composing any Minority, has no protection against the unlimited power of The Majority.

You can have a Direct Democracy, or a Representative Democracy. In the direct type, applicable only to a small number of people as in small American town-meeting, all of the electorate assemble to debate and decide all government questions and all decisions are reached by a majority vote (of at least half-plus-one). Decisions in these town meetings are, of course, subject to the Constitutions of the State and of the United States. The Majority described is not omnipotent and the example is therefore, this is not an example of a true Direct Democracy.

Representative Democracy is where they have a true parliamentary form of government. The people elect representatives to the national legislature and like in England the elective body is the House of Commons–and it functions by a similar vote of at least half-plus-one in making all legislative decisions.

In both examples of a Democracy, The Majority’s power is absolute and unlimited; its decisions are not subject to be over ruled under the legal system established for this form of government. This allows unlimited Tyranny-by-Majority. 

Why did America become a republic?

The Framers of the United States Constitution condemned the “excesses of democracy” and abuses under any Democracy of the unalienable rights of The Individual by The Majority. The reasons were based on the royal tyranny which had been exercised through oppressions by royal governors and judges of the new State governments. The legislatures acted as if they were virtually omnipotent. There were no effective State Constitutions to limit the legislatures because most State governments were operating under mere Acts of their respective legislatures which labeled as State “Constitutions.” States operated under old Charters.

It was not until 1780 that the first genuine Republic through constitutionally limited government was adopted by Massachusetts–next New Hampshire in 1784, other States later.

Thomas Jefferson stated, “An elective despotism was not the government we fought for.” He also denounced the despotic concentration of power in the Virginia Legislature under the so-called “Constitution”–in reality a mere Act of that body. Having all the powers of government, legislative, executive, judiciary, controlled by one legislative body is not freedom. Concentrating these in the same hands is precisely the definition of despotic government.

Our forefathers by their protests against the “excesses of democracy” were merely making clear their sound reasons for preferring a Republic as the proper form of government. They well knew, in light of history, that nothing but a Republic can provide the best safeguards–in truth in the long run the only effective form of government to protect the people’s civil liberties which are historically victimized by Democracy’s form and system of unlimited Government-over-Man featuring The Majority Omnipotent.

They also knew that the American people would not consent to any form of government but that of a Republic. Jefferson, who was in Paris as the American Minister for several years, wrote Madison in March 1789 the following: “The tyranny of the legislatures is the most formidable dread at present and will be for long years. That of the executive will come its turn, but it will be at a remote period.”

Earlier, Madison had written Jefferson about violation of the Bill of Rights by State legislatures, stating: “Repeated violations of those parchment barriers have been committed by overbearing majorities in every State. In Virginia I have seen the bill of rights violated in every instance where it has been opposed to a popular current.”

In any Democracy–either a Direct or a Representative type–as a form of government, there can be no legal system which protects The Individual or The Minority against tyranny by The Majority. The undependable sense of self-restraint of the persons making up The Majority at any particular time offers, of course, no protection whatever. Such a form of government is characterized by The Majority Omnipotent and Unlimited.

Democracy, as a form of government, was and still is, utterly unacceptable to that of a Republic. The underlying philosophy, expressed in the Declaration of Independence has the people forming their government so as to permit them to possess only “just powers”. This allows us to keep secure, the God-given, unalienable rights of each and every Individual and therefore of all groups of Individuals.

Unfortunately America has been on a path to change our system of government back to its original Democracy that our ancestors fought and died to make a Republic. I only wish more Americans would open their eyes to what the loss of individual freedom means for their ancestors. The Progressive movement to make this change has been gaining strength for over 112 years. Unfortunately Obama and the democrats in leadership today are pressing for a Socialist Democracy, an Empire, a Monarchy or a combination of all, who really knows? I hope you read my recent article on Denmark that describes a combination of a Monarchy and Socialist Democracy combined. I am happy with our “Republic” form of government, are you?  If you desire any other form of government, please move to your country of choice and leave freedom loving Americans alone.
