Nobody’s History Email: Jefferson’s War With Islam and the Leathernecks

Nobody Gets Email:

If you do NOT know the history of the Muslims VS the United States, you would want to read this. Obama and Hillary, have been going around the country saying that Muslims are a very big part of our founding.jeffersons-war-one

Sure they were, and Mickey Mouse was really Mamie Eisenhower in disguise.

The Muslims are the reason the United States formed the Marines.

Obama also states that Thomas Jefferson had a “holy” Koran. Well, he only GOT the “holy’ Koran so he could see the passage where it says that all infidels must die. It was simply a “Know your enemy” lesson, NOT a religious one as Obama likes to make everybody think.

The Muslims of today, are not any different from the Muslims of yesteryear, except now they have cell phones. I once had an Armeian lady tell me that the way Muslims take over countries is always the same.

They move in by the masses, they build their Mosques next to churches, (or IN the church itself) they lay low until they have the numbers, and then…they take over.

If you read this, you too will think like me…well, what has changed?

(Thanks to Madmemere)


History has a strange way of repeating itself!!  I hope you will read, remember and not allow any of this, or anything like this, to take place in your town, city, or neighborhood.

You would think America would learn something very valuable from our history and realize what is REALLY happening in our country with these people!………We can’t ignore the historical truths or change history to suit our narratives for the day…..Facts are facts…..Period!jeffersons-war-three

When 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.jeffersons-war-four

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.jeffersons-war-two

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.

THIS is the dangerous President.

THIS is the dangerous President.

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.”

John Adams Built the Navy that Jefferson Would Use…Right Mr. Meacham?

Nobody Remembers

I remember how excited I was the day I finished reading David McCollough’s biography of John Adams. I was even more excited when Tom Hanks brought his book to life in an HBO series. So you can imagine how surprised I was to hear a different version of history about John Adams and Thomas Jefferson last night on Mark Levine’s show. This historian, Jon Meacham, gave Jefferson all the glory and made John Adams out to be the stupid one when it came to Barbary pirates.Tom Jefferson

Funny, I thought—- that’s not how David McCullough reported it.

The author, Jon Meacham, was promoting his new book called Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power.

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up–An honest look at Jefferson’s life, accomplishments, and inconsistencies. Bernstein does not gloss over his subject’s flaws and the controversies that surrounded him. The contradictions between Jefferson’s beliefs and his behavior, while exposing his human side, are not used to denigrate him or to diminish his accomplishments

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • The Washington Post • Entertainment Weekly • The Seattle Times • St. Louis Post-Dispatch • Bloomberg Businessweek

(Notice it’s the liberal media that loves it.)

Mr. Meacham made it sound like, it was Jefferson that stood up to the Barbary Pirates, against the wishes of John Adams. It wasn’t that he was wrong, it was the way he was presenting Jefferson as being so much wiser than John, and leaving out the particulars that was annoying.

To sum it up, in order for America to be able to use the shipping lanes in the Mediterranean, back in the early days of our country, they had to ‘pay’ the Sultan of Tripoli for safe passage. The Sultan, Abdrahaman, wanted more than Congress was willing to give, even though both France and Britain were already paying them. Jefferson had gone to Paris to help John negotiate with them.Jon meachan two

(This bribery has NOT changed in all these years)

From John Adams (p. 352)

From Philadelphia, John Jay sent instructions to negotiate with the Barbary States. Funds were made available by Congress up to $80,000. But Adams and Jefferson had not money at hand. When Jefferson inquired whether Adams might borrow again from the Dutch, and reported that French officers in Paris were angry over not having been paid what they were due for services in the Revolution, Adams was helpless to do anything.

Remember, John Adams got a loan from the Dutch, (and he did this all by himself without the help of any of his ‘friends’ in Congress) so that George Washington could then go on with his battles and win the Revolutionary war. Without that loan, the war might have been lost.

Jefferson and Adams wrote to each other, when Jefferson left London and went to Paris…John Adams

From John Adams (P. 366)

In an exchange of letters between London and Paris , meantime, he and Jefferson considered the question of whether to pay tribute to the Barbary pirates or wage war with them. Jefferson recommend war as more honorable and proposed that an American fleet be built. Adams agreed in principle and promised, “I will go all lengths with you in promoting a navy.” Like Jefferson, he detested any prospect of paying bribes. But given that there was no American navy at present and that it would be years most likely before Congress voted such a resolution, Adams though it sensible to pay the money. “We ought not fight them at all, unless we determine to fight them forever” he told Jefferson who willingly deferred to Adam’s judgment. Later in January 1787, they would sign a pact with Morocco, whereby the Unites States, like France and Britain agreed to pay for protection.

Then Meacham, went on to give Jefferson the credit for building the Navy, at least I thought that’s what he said. I couldn’t believe it. Did I just hear that? All throughout McCullough’s book, Jefferson is seen hiding out on Monticello throughout the revolution…it was Adams that built that Navy.

When he became President, Adams asked Congress for the funds, and a bill for a ‘provisional army’ was passed.

From John Adams (p. 501)

The rebirth of the navy the ‘wooden walls’ he wanted above all for defense of the country, and a new Department of the Navy, separate from the War Department were his pride and joy.

The new navy, in Vice President’s Jefferson’s view, was a colossal waste of money.David McCollough two

Add to that the fact that when Jefferson became President, he disbanded much of our military, (typical democrat) and so, when the British invaded again in the war of 1812, it was Jefferson’s own fault, the country was unprotected. Adams begged him not to.

John Meacham, was obviously, making a not so accurate picture of Jefferson…the father of the democratic party. Jon is now helping Daddy Bush polish up the history of his son with 41’s new biography.

It’s easy enough to explain: Jon Meacham has connections to all the right people…many of them ‘progressives’  and who know to twist words, and report the right propaganda to affect the nation and the voters.

David McCullough is his own man.

Jon Meacham is executive editor and executive vice president at Random House. He is a former editor-in-chief of Newsweek, a contributing editor to Time Magazine, editor-at-large of WNET, and a commentator on politics, history, and religious faith in America. He won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography for his work American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House. en.wikipedia.org

It’s an election year…the democrats LOVE to bring out Thomas Jefferson, FDR, and the Kennedy’s and polish their stars.

It wasn’t too long after this that I hear ANOTHER biography on the great genius of FDR just came out.  Propaganda to get the masses into voting for the RIGHT progressive, whether it be a Bush, or a Clinton.

And as my mother always said, when in life, most times it’s always wise to ‘consider the source.” When it comes to historians, it’s best to check who they are ‘associated” with.

That’s where you will usually find the truth.

Did we NEED another biography of Thomas Jefferson?  No. But, it’s an election year…EVERYBODY is writing books.

Nobody Flashes: Happy 4th of July!

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

I hope everyone..has a great day today.

For my own celebration, I’m reading this before the day begins, eternal words written by Thomas Jefferson and more thoughts from Tocqueville.  The Declaration of Independence was one of the most sublime documents ever written by man. It STILLS belongs to “We the People” and we should not forget that this day. Also remember that Obama leaves out the word Creator whenever he recites these words…every single time.

***************
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.   Declaration of Independence

And another remainders from Alexis de Tocqueville (Thanks amfortas)

Trading welfare for power is the second oldest profession. Wherever the government seems to provide, it actually rules. This is the “mild” despotism feared by Alexis de Tocqueville, the brilliant 19th century political thinker whose writing inspired Friedrich Hayek’s Road to Serfdom. This seemingly benevolent form of dictatorship, he wrote in the second volume of Democracy in America, is a tyranny that would “degrade men without tormenting them,” “an immense and tutelary power, which takes upon itself alone to secure [people’s] gratifications, and to watch over their fate. That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident and mild. It would be like the authority of a parent, if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks on the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood.”

And so goes the world…..

Nobody’s Email: Jefferson’s Words of Wisdom

Nobody Gets Email

I always thought it was funny that Bill Clinton’s middle name was Jefferson, (and not so funny that Obama’s middle name was Hussein)  and I always wondered if his mother REALLY gave him that middle name or if he put it in for political purposes. I’m sure the real Jefferson would not have approved of Bill Clinton in any way…

So, ponder these quotes from the man himself, who sadly is not here to stand up and shout them to the Congress, whose approval rating this morning was 9%.

(Thanks to Tom Beebe)

*****

  • “When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe .” — Thomas Jefferson
  • “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”– Thomas Jefferson
  • “It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.” — Thomas Jefferson
  • “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” — Thomas Jefferson
  • “My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.” — Thomas Jefferson
  • “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” — Thomas Jefferson
  • “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”– Thomas Jefferson
  • “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” — Thomas Jefferson
  • “To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”– Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

Nobody Says: Is it any wonder that our leaders don’t want to teach history and rewrite our founders as backward, racist, old white men? We should have these words engraved in the halls of Congress.
