We Mal-educated Young Americans Like LeBron on Communism’s Evil

Rush Limbaugh

What I’m talking about is the degree of mal-education. I’m talking about, what does communism do to the heart, to the mind, to the soul of human beings? That’s not taught anymore.

LeBron James is a classic example of just sheer uneducation inside a body and mind who thinks he’s a genius. He doesn’t know diddly-squat.

left wing indoctrinationMost of the people on the left who are out there espousing communism, supporting communism, defending communism have simply been poisoned. They’ve not been properly educated. And it’s a problem. When Thomas Jefferson becomes a bigger problem in America than Hugo Chavez was in Venezuela, we’ve got a problem. That has not been something that every generation assumed growing up in America, but there are young people today who believe that Thomas Jefferson is a scourge on the United States, and we need leaders more like Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro or, you name it.

Chinese communismNow we’ve got people defending the most repressive, punitive, brutal regime on the planet, the communist Chinese. And they think that they are being valorous. They think that they are doing the Lord’s work. They think they are defending honor. They’re defending their back pockets and their bank accounts, obviously. But it goes beyond just people being loyal to money.

They have been mis-taught. It’s not that they’re uneducated. It’s that the people we consider the best and brightest or the elites don’t know anything that is correct. They have been taught over the course of their lives a bunch of gibberish. And because they are elites, and because they are from the upper strata of society, what they think is given some weight. And it’s never examined in a fact-based analytical way.

indoctrination in schoolsI’m talking about, what does communism do to the heart, to the mind, to the soul of human beings? That’s not taught anymore. In fact, it’s lied about. Communism is held out as a great promise, it’s a great equalizer. It’s the elimination of all sadness and unhappiness because it eliminates competition. Therefore, it eliminates losing. Therefore, it eliminates disappointment. Therefore, communism eliminates feeling inferior because nobody is superior. All of this rotgut.

This is extremely eye-opening. Documented by a firsthand witness. Left wing radicals berate and disparage our Biblical values. They are lying. They don’t know what they are talking about. Anyone who can read this and still want open borders and socialism, without God and His moral absolutes, then there is something wrong.

What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa:  Trump Is Right!

By Karin McQuillan  January 17, 2018

Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town.  Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health.  That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, “a fecalized environment”

In plain English: s— is everywhere.  People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust  onto you, your clothes, your food, the water.  He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water.  Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.

I will not ignore the Truth

moment of truthNever in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country.  Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it are racism.

Last time I was in Paris, I saw a beautiful African woman in a grand boubou have her child defecate on the sidewalk next to Notre Dame Cathedral.  The French police officer, ten steps from her, turned his head not to see.

I have seen.  I am not turning my head and pretending unpleasant things are not true.

Senegal was not a hellhole.  Very poor people can lead happy, meaningful lives in their own cultures’ terms.  But they are not our terms.  The excrement is the least of it.  Our basic ideas of human relations, right and wrong, are incompatible.

absolute truthAs a twenty-one-year-old starting out in the Peace Corps, I loved Senegal.  In fact, I was euphoric.  I quickly made friends and had an adopted family.  I relished the feeling of the brotherhood of man.  People were open, willing to share their lives and, after they knew you, their innermost thoughts.

The longer I lived there, the more I understood: it became blindingly obvious that the Senegalese are not the same as us.  The truths we hold to be self-evident are not evident to the Senegalese.  How could they be?  Their reality is totally different.  You can’t understand anything in Senegal using American terms.

Cultural Family Differences

Take something as basic as family.  Family was a few hundred people, extending out to second and third cousins.  All the men in one generation were called “father.”  Senegalese are Muslim, with up to four wives. 

Female Genital Mutilation

fgm muslim doctor

Muslim doctor who does fgm

Girls had their clitorises cut off at puberty.  (I witnessed this, at what I thought was going to be a nice coming-of-age ceremony, like a bat mitzvah or confirmation.) 

Sex, I was told, did not include kissing.  Love and friendship in marriage were Western ideas.  Fidelity was not a thing.  Married women would have sex for a few cents to have cash for the market.

What I did witness every day was that women were worked half to death.  Wives raised the food and fed their own children, did the heavy labor of walking miles to gather wood for the fire, drew water from the well or public faucet, pounded grain with heavy hand-held pestles, lived in their own huts, and had conjugal visits from their husbands on a rotating basis with their co-wives.  Their husbands lazed in the shade of the trees.

Family was crucial to people there in a way Americans cannot comprehend.

Ten Commandments Unknown

The Ten Commandments were not disobeyed as they were unknown.  The value system was the exact opposite.  You were supposed to steal everything you can to give to your own relatives.  There are some Westernized Africans who try to rebel against the system.  They fail.

We hear a lot about the kleptocratic elites of Africa.  The kleptocracy extends through the whole society.  My town had a medical clinic donated by international agencies.

The medicine was stolen by the medical workers and sold to the local store.  If you were sick and didn’t have money, drop dead.  That was normal.

So here in the States, when we discovered that my 98-year-old father’s Muslim health aide from Nigeria had stolen his clothes and wasn’t bathing him, I wasn’t surprised.  It was familiar.

Total Corruption

In Senegal, corruption ruled, from top to bottom.  Go to the post office, and the clerk would name an outrageous price for a stamp.  After paying the bribe, you still didn’t know it if it would be mailed or thrown out.  That was normal.

One of my most vivid memories was from the clinic.  One day, as the wait grew hotter in the 110-degree heat, an old woman two feet from the medical aides  who were chatting in the shade of a mango tree instead of working  collapsed to the ground.  They turned their heads so as not to see her and kept talking.  She lay there in the dirt.  Callousness to the sick was normal.

Other Cultures do not have a Moral Compass  like in our Judeo-Christian Culture

Americans think it is a universal human instinct to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  It’s not.  It seems natural to us because we live in a Bible-based Judeo-Christian culture

No Work Ethic, No Private Enterprise, Just Kleptocracy

We think the Protestant work ethic is universal.  It’s not.  My town was full of young men doing nothing.  They were waiting for a government job.  There was no private enterprise.  Private business was not illegal, just impossible, given the nightmare of a third-world bureaucratic kleptocracy.  It is also incompatible with Senegalese insistence on taking care of relatives.

Socialism

gospel of envyAll the little stores in Senegal were owned by Mauritanians.  If a Senegalese wanted to run a little store, he’d go to another country.  The reason?  Your friends and relatives would ask you for stuff for free, and you would have to say yes.  End of your business.  You are not allowed to be a selfish individual and say no to relatives.  The result: Everyone has nothing.

The more I worked there and visited government officials doing absolutely nothing, the

socialism destitution

Venezuela desolated by socialism

more I realized that no one in Senegal had the idea that a job means work  A job is something given to you by a relative.  It provides the place where you steal everything to give back to your family.

I couldn’t wait to get home.  So why would I want to bring Africa here?  Non-Westerners do not magically become American by arriving on our shores with a visa.

For the rest of my life, I enjoyed the greatest gift of the Peace Corps: I love and treasure America more than ever.  I take seriously my responsibility to defend our culture and our country and pass on the American heritage to the next generation.

African problems are made worse by our aid efforts  Senegal is full of smart, capable people.  They will eventually solve their own country’s problems.  They will do it on their terms, not ours.  The solution is not to bring Africans here.

We are lectured by Democrats that we must privilege third-world immigration by the hundred million with chain migration. 

Trump protect bordersThey tell us we must end America as a white , Western, Judeo-Christian, capitalist nation  to prove we are not racist.  I don’t need to prove a thing.  Leftists want open borders because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate America.  They want to destroy America as we know it.

As President Trump asked, why would we do that?

We have the right to choose what kind of country to live in.  I was happy to donate a year of my life as a young woman to help the poor Senegalese  I am not willing to donate my country.

The 18th Anniversary of “Some People Did Something”

Rush Limbaugh

RUSH: Muslim terrorists, Islamist terrorists killed almost 3,000 people, and, still to this day, the bad guys have to be protected.

OMAR: CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.

RUSH:  What a crock.  “CAIR was founded after 9/11 ’cause they recognized that some people did something,” and then the New York Times says “airplanes took aim at” the Twin Towers?  So this morning at the 9/11 Memorial, during the reading of the names of the victims, Jersey City, New Jersey, resident Nicholas Haros spoke.  Here he is reading the name of his mother who died in the attack and then a portion of his subsequent remarks.

NICHOLAS HAROS:  My mother, Frances Haros.  Good morning, brothers and sisters in good faith.  Listen, “some people did something”?  I am here today to honor any 76-year-old mother, Frances, on the solemn nation’s anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.  Mom, we’ll miss you, and love you very much.  “Some people did something,” said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota, to support justify the creation of CAIR?  Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom.

CROWD: (applause)

9-11 Trade CenterHAROS: Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done.  There is no uncertainty about that.  Why your confusion?  On that day, 19 Islamic terrorists, members of Al-Qaeda, killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars of economic damage.  Is that clear.  But as to whom, I was attacked, your relatives and friends were attacked, our constitutional freedoms were attacked, and our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked.  That’s what “some people” did.  Got that now?  We are here today Congresswoman, to tell you and The Squad just who did what to whom.  Show respect in honoring them, please.  American patriotism and your position demand it.  For God and country, amen.

RUSH:  I have to tell you, that is a lot of tolerance.  Again, that was Nicholas Haros, who lost his mother in the 9/11 attacks, and he was responding to the distinguished and honorable Ilhan Omar describing CAIR “being founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something.”  He was very, very, very reserved in telling her that she knows who did this and that it’s time to admit it.

History Fact: CAIR is American Branch of Muslim Brotherhood

RUSH: By the way, a tiny little point here. The Council on Arab-Islamic Relations, otherwise known as CAIR, was not founded after 9/11. It was founded in the 1970s. CAIR was founded in January 1994. And if you want to know who they are, they are the Muslim Brotherhood.

CAIR is simply the American branch office of the Muslim Brotherhood. I don’t think even Ilhan Omar knows the most basic facts. CAIR was founded in 1994, not after 9/11. But see, I think she does know. I think they’re lying about it on purpose.

Why the Worldwide Left Is So Opposed to Donald Trump

Rush Limbaugh

trump vs establishmentThey’ve succeeded in Europe.  They have not yet succeeded here because of Trump.  But this deranged, delusional, extraordinary opposition to Donald Trump — if you know everything about this — makes perfect sense when you consider the people and the plans they had that he has disrupted. ~Rush Limbaugh

 

The Globalist Movement, headed by a power-hungry Cabal

“In 2008, Robert Kagan, then advising the presidential campaign of Senator John McCain, declared that the ‘United States . . . should not oppose, but welcome a world of pooled and diminished national sovereignty.’

“The social-material base of the transnationalists is housed in many institutions and organizations. For example, in the leadership of the United Nations; with bureaucrats from the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank; with judges from the World Court in the Hague, the International Criminal Court, and the European Court of Human Rights.”

All these things that we’ve cataloged, categorized and known as they’re established. Trump rails against them all as being anti-American. They’re not existing to further America’s interests. They exist to actually, for lack of a better word, punish America. This is all about what I’ve always said. Diminishing America in the post-war period. We are the remaining, the only world super power, but we’ve got to be diminished for these people. They don’t want to just run the U.S., they want to run the world. And they can’t if the U.S. remains a superpower and gigantic and sovereign.

“For American transnationalists, global experts in international law, human rights, the environment, gender equity would have greater legitimacy in the creation of ‘global rules’ than democratically elected officials.” What this means is that for these people that believe in transnationalism, a utopian globalist regime that the experts that would be housed in leadership in this regime would have a much freer easy time of instituting their brand of human rights via the environment, gender equity — those things would have a much greater legitimacy if we could just diminish the United States because diminishing the United States would be diminishing its moral code, would be diminishing its moral and legal foundations.

So in many ways what this is saying is that we represent the obstacle, the final obstacle, if you will, to the desire these people have to establish a gigantic and, they claim, benevolent government leadership body.

Now, this group of people as it exists now, “The social base certainly includes the leadership of the European Union (which is a model for supranational governance) and its administrators in the European Commission, judges in the European Court of Justice, and other EU officials. It includes international non-governmental organizations (e.g. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Greenpeace, George Soros’s Open Society foundations, etc.).” It’s important that these are nongovernment, NGOs, they’re all leftists. Everything that we’re talking about here is left-wing. It’s liberal. It’s socialist. It’s communist.

All of this was to set in motion a mental attitude in the United States, “Hey, 1% growth is good; that’s about what we can expect. Maybe we shouldn’t have been so powerful in the past!”  This was all part of being able to strip wealth out of the United States, spread it around the world, build up support for the transnational government.  If you’ve got a transnational organization and you can say that you’re helping people move up economically, then you may have their support.  Not that you care about the democratic process, but it would help in limiting anybody opposed to what you’re trying to do.

It’s a hideous bunch.

 

George H.W. Bush’s “New World Order”

If people weren’t able to vote, Trump wouldn’t have got elected.  If there weren’t any vote in the U.K., there wouldn’t have been Brexit.  I guarantee you that’s how these people are looking at it.  They’re not seeing you individually as the opposition.  They’re saying the right to vote is something they’ve got to snuff out.  That’s how they’ll protect themselves against you.  Meanwhile…  Meanwhile… “After the fall of the Berlin Wall, many conservatives embraced President George H. W. Bush’s call for a ‘new world order.’

“It appeared to be a consolidation of the West’s Cold War victory and, thus, the building of a Reagan-Thatcher global order based on expanding liberal democracy and free markets.  But the ‘rules’ in this ‘rules-based’ liberal global order began to ‘evolve’ (as academics like to say). In the 1990s, the United Nations Landmines Treaty and the establishment of the International Criminal Court were enacted …against the concerns of American sovereignty.” Not just against it, to effectively deal with.

The International Criminal Court, the World Trade Organization — all these organizations — were essentially created to rule against the United States. It was all part of the process of deemphasizing the power and role of the United States as a superpower in the world. “Recognizing this new transnationalist challenge in September 2000, John Bolton … portrayed a coming conflict between ‘Globalists and Americanists.’ At that time, 19 years ago, Bolton warned that we must take global governance seriously as a threat to democratic sovereignty.”

 

Sovereignty of Nations

So Trump comes along and totally pulls the rug out from under these people.

Brexit! Brexit was the same thing.

brexit“With the Brexit referendum, the election of Donald Trump, and the rise of conservative, democratic nationalists throughout the West,” meaning western democracies, “the global governance project has been seriously challenged for the first time.”  They thought they were in an “arc of history” that was inevitable, that we were headed to this transnational/globalist way of life that would result in an end to the concept of national sovereignty.  And then Brexit and Trump came along.  And they have been rendered…

They’ve never faced this kind of opposition.

trump-weather-stormThis is the establishment we’re talking about.  They put things into place specifically and precisely to make sure these kinds of things — Trump and Brexit — don’t happen, and yet they both did.  What does this mean?  What are these people thinking screwed this up?  I’m telling you: Democracy.  People having the vote is what screwed up their plans.  If you take nothing away from what I’m saying, take two things away: In order for this to work, the American wealth has to be reduced — and the vote of the people, the democratic way of life, has got to be eliminated.

They’ve succeeded in Europe.  They have not yet succeeded here because of Trump.  So, folks, to wrap this up  and there’s still much more here. But this deranged, delusional, extraordinary opposition to Donald Trump — if you know everything about this — makes perfect sense when you consider the people and the plans they had that he has disrupted.

US Constitution Series 20: Majority Rule, Minority Rights vs. Radical Ideologies

US Constitution Series 20:

Majority Rule, Minority Rights vs. Radical Ideologies

Majority Rule tends toward moderation in elections. Although the Founders instituted Majority Rule for practical reasons, perhaps a bonus is to protect us from dangers of radical ideologies that are dangerous to the very freedoms safeguarded in the Constitution. C.D.

 

President Trump was elected by the majority of the American people. The Democrat Party was defeated because of its radical extremism. It is now in the political minority, by the will of the American people. Rights of minority citizens are respected by the Constitution. However, this does not mean that the American people as a whole are to be ruled by a minority of politicians whose policies threaten the very freedoms safeguarded in the Constitution.

Founding Principles of America #20

From 5,000 Year Leap

By W. Cleon Skousen

 

Majority Rule

Efficiency and dispatch require government to operate according to the will of the majority, but Constitutional provisions must be made to protect the rights of the minority.

One of the most serious mistakes in the structure of the Articles of confederation was the requirement that no changes could be made without the approval of every one of the states. During the Revolutionary War several vital changes were suggested, but in each instance a single state was able to prevent the needed change from being adopted.

Basis for the “Majority” Rule

Delaying action until it had the unanimous approval of all concerned can be disastrous in a time of emergency. It even inhibits healthy progress in normal times. Unanimity is the ideal, but majority rule becomes a necessity. P.229

Majority Rule a Necessity

It has sometimes been argued that a bare majority of one person scarcely justifies the making of a final decision for the whole body. It has been argued that it would be better to have a substantial majority of perhaps two-thirds or three-fourths. In the Constitution a provision of this type was incorporated in the text for the purpose of initiating amendments. A two-thirds majority is also required for the purpose of overriding a Presidential veto.

Minorities Have Equal Rights

Nevertheless, the American Founders had suffered enough from the tyrannical conduct of Parliament to feel highly sensitive to the rights of minorities.

It is the responsibility of the minorities themselves to learn the language, seek needed education, become self-sustaining, and make themselves recognized as a genuine asset to the community. P 231-232

Important Note:

President Trump was elected by the majority of the American people. The Democrat Party was defeated because of its radical extremism. It is now in the political minority, by the will of the American people. Rights of minority citizens are respected by the Constitution. However, this does not mean that the American people as a whole are to be ruled by a minority of politicians whose policies are dangerous to the security of the nation. C.D.

Border Emergency by McNaughton

National Emergency by John McNaughton

The adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” suggests complexity lends itself to simplicity in a single image. Those recognizing the national crisis at our southern border will understand then the allegory of artist Jon McNaughton’s painting “National Emergency.”

In the portrait, thousands of illegal immigrants, off in the distance, approach the U.S. border.

In the right forefront stands a solemn President Donald Trump, hands clasped, his eyes locked on a doll on the ground discarded by a child, perhaps one whom illegals kidnapped seeking their free ticket to remain in America.

In contrast, to the portrait’s left forefront stands a jubilant group of Democratic Party leaders. Several hold, as McNaughton explains, “the different flags that represent the countries they are more aligned with in terms of protecting their interests but not the American people’s interest.”

Democrats portrayed by McNaughton include: at center stage, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) – the latter with her arm triumphantly thrust up into the air – both holding Mexico’s flag; Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT), who never met a communist he didn’t like, holding the flag of Communist China; former President Barack Obama, who told the United Nations in 2016 America would need to “accept constraints” on its sovereignty to achieve the UN’s goals, clutching the UN flag; and several other high profile members of the far left crowd: Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Rep Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Rep Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY), Rep Ilhan Omar (D-MINN), Rep Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Hillary Clinton.

Message of the Art

trump: illegal immigration unfairMost telling is what Democrats are standing upon – a large, trampled American flag. Perhaps with a final stroke of his brush, McNaughton conveyed one last hidden message: the skies above are filled with dark, ominous storm clouds.

The portrait captured McNaughton’s intention, explaining: “It truly is a national emergency what is happening on our border. And I wanted to make that very clear in this painting, who our enemies truly are. …(They) are trying to stop President Trump from doing the right thing: to protect the American people.”

McNaughton’s portrait was timely. Soon after its release, we saw far-left protestors tear down the U.S. flag at an ICE facility in Aurora, Colorado, replacing it with a Mexican one. Yet Democratic leaders have been unwilling to condemn the act.

Race Card

Despite Democrats playing the race card (i.e., claiming Trump seeks to keep America white, promoting “a brown menace”), the issue is not racial. The issue is the burden – financial, human (crime, transmittable diseases, etc.) and humanitarian, we will face.

Failing to address it now, we will discover the storm clouds McNaughton portrayed were not just passing through.

History Timeline: Thomas Jefferson, Barbary Pirates, US Marine History, and Sharia Law Explained

History Timeline:

Thomas Jefferson, Barbary Pirates, US Marine History, and Sharia Law Explained

A 232 Year History of our fight against Islam & why it is no longer taught in our public schools…

Thomas Jefferson founded US Marines

When Thomas Jefferson saw there was no negotiating with Muslims, he formed what is 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 everyone 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.

Barbary Pirates extorted Exorbitant Ransoms

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 governments and families 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.

1784  US Congress paid Bribes to Barbary States

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.

1785 Jefferson proposes Coalition of Nations to oppose Barbary Extortion

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.

1786  Quran: All Non-Muslim Nations must be Subdued and Enslaved—Islam Ambassador

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.

1801  President Jefferson refuses to Pay Ransom; Barbary States Declare War

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 builds Navy

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.

Origin of Marines’ “Leathernecks” name

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.

Jefferson warns: Supremacy and Violence vs. Religious Freedom

We believe that religion is instituted of God; and that men are amenable to Him, and to Him only, for the exercise of it, unless their religious opinions prompt them to infringe upon the rights and liberties of others. Doctrine and Covenants 134:4

A religion based on supremacy, whose holy book not only condoned but mandated violence against unbelievers, was unacceptable to President Jefferson.

His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose an even greater threat to the United States .

Islam Explained Today—Sharia Law becoming new State Religion

This should concern every American. That Muslims have brought about

  • women-only classes and swimming times in America 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; 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 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!

Sharia Law Explained

 

By Jason D. Hill

Islam is not only incompatible with democracy.  It is inimical to America’s fundamental values and principles.  More important, it is in violation of the United States Constitution.  It is time for the United States to make a pre-emptive strike against a moral and political ideology whose stated goal is the abolition of our political system.

When we think of Islam mainly as a religion, we cannot disambiguate it from Sharia law, which, when examined, allows us to see that the legal, cultural and political aspects of the religion supersede the purely private religious aspects of it.  World Islam, above all, has become a political ideology.

Sharia law is a weaponized political tool supervening the public sphere that violates every sacred tenet of American life.

  • The institution of slavery remains lawful under sharia law.
  • Those who repudiate their faith in Islam directly or indirectly are guilty of capital offenses.  It, therefore, conflicts with our constitutional human right of freedom of conscience and religion.
  • The Sharia law of apostasy restricts other human rights, such as freedom of expression and association.
  • Sharia law does not guarantee equal rights for men and women.
