Yesterday it was initially reported that an indeterminate number of Americans out of 41 foreign workers of the Ain Amenas gas complex (owned and operated by BP petroleum company) deep in the Sahara desert 800 miles south of Algiers, were among those taken hostage after Islamist Militants (i.e. TERRORISTS) attacked the gas complex, killing a security guard and one Algerian in the course of their assault. It was later revealed the number of American’s included in this figure were 7. The Islamic terrorists have since been revealed to have ties with Al Qaeda (like that’s a surprise).

Today, in the early hours, recent developments have been brought to light that 20 of the hostages have since managed to secure their own escape, including, according to FOX NEWS, ‘some’ of the American’s being held. As I’ve followed these details this morning, I’ve speculated the desperation of the American hostages being fueled by their awareness in knowing from what transpired in Benghazi, the kind of response they could anticipate from this President and his Administration in the way of help, thus galvanizing them into taking matters in their own hands at liberating themselves from their plight.

We keep having it shoved down our throats here at home, the supposed “peaceful” nature of this “religion” of Islam. I find that to be a totally disingenuous claim as I’ve seen go unreported purposefully by the liberal media those less appealing aspects of this “religion of peace” throughout other parts of the world (and even here on our own doorstep), in their honor killings of women allegedly found in violation to their sacred tenets. Islamic men wedding themselves to children. The beheading of infidels, and either those former Muslims who have converted to Christianity refusing to renounce their Christian faith, or any who refuse to convert to Islam. Their decreed desire towards global conquest and the means and methods of deceit, duplicity, and mass breeding with which to utilize towards ensuring this dominance being found in the very pages of their own Quran (Wikipedia defines the Quran as being ~ “The central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be the verbatim word of God passed on to the prophet Muhammad by the Angel Jibril (Gabriel), over a period of approximately 23 years.”).


Misunderstood “religion of peace” my ass! It’s disturbing and grating to me this complete cognitive dissonance of these liberals we have today in our Country at this tangible threat posed to us by these radical archaic 7th Century throwbacks. Their hypocrites obsequious deference and tolerance on the one hand to those whose concealed goals and ambitions are dedicated to nothing less than the intended subversion of our sovereignty, while on the other hand, certain of these same liberals unceasingly express a visceral hostility and intolerance towards anything remotely Christian. It brings to mind however, a survey I’d seen published over a year ago, where it stated 70% of the Muslim population here in the United States believe Sharia law should be made the law of the land ~ OUR land! Which leaves 30% of the American Muslim population unaccounted for in this survey who either are ‘moderate Muslim’s’ (fearful of speaking out due to possible violent reprisals and retaliation by their radical counterparts), or else are giving their silent and covert approval to this desire.

Regardless, I think of all the various controversies stemming from this particular subject we’ve witnessed develop and transmogrify in the headlines during recent years. The numerous reports of alleged radical Islamic groups scattered throughout here on American soil (in what can only be described as encampments) supposedly arming and training themselves for what has been speculated to be nefarious purposes. Reports of some schools acquiescing in appeasement by allowing prayer rugs and even designating prayer rooms to children of Islamic faith, while other outrageous reports go so far as to cite some schools curriculum mandating children of non-Muslim origin to engage in the practices of Muslim prayer and studying of the Quran (which is a heavy handed slap to the face of American’s and our own diversified population of indigenous Christian faiths as we consider liberals successful efforts in marginalizing, abolishing, and doing away with any reference to our God or prayer throughout all of our schools).

It’s genuinely mind boggling trying to understand the warped guiding rationale of liberals, but it goes without saying tho’, that if you don’t stand in agreement with the self-effacing deranged ideology of these idiots, then you’re naturally a racist. Basically the same precept they use if you’re not an Obama supporter, so I guess then (by that bizarre standard), I’m guilty and proud to declare myself a racist, accepting that designation as a badge of honor.

But how many of you are aware that America’s first war to be fought on foreign soil, was fought against Muslim pirates under President Thomas Jefferson?

The following excerpt is taken from the website, International Military Forums, under the title, “What Thomas Jefferson learned from the Muslim book of jihad”.

~Over the course of 10 centuries, Muslim pirates cruised the African and Mediterranean coastline, pillaging villages and seizing slaves.

The taking of slaves in pre-dawn raids on unsuspecting coastal villages had a high casualty rate. It was typical of Muslim raiders to kill off as many of the “non-Muslim” older men and women as possible so the preferred “booty” of only young women and children could be collected.

Young non-Muslim women were targeted because of their value as concubines in Islamic markets. Islamic law provides for the sexual interests of Muslim men by allowing them to take as many as four wives at one time and to have as many concubines as their fortunes allow.

Boys, as young as 9 or 10 years old, were often mutilated to create eunuchs who would bring higher prices in the slave markets of the Middle East . Muslim slave traders created “eunuch stations” along major African slave routes so the necessary surgery could be performed. It was estimated that only a small number of the boys subjected to the mutilation survived after the surgery.

When American colonists rebelled against British rule in 1776, American merchant ships lost Royal Navy protection. With no American Navy for protection, American ships were attacked and their Christian crews enslaved by Muslim pirates operating under the control of the “Dey of Algiers”–an Islamist warlord ruling Algeria .

Because American commerce in the Mediterranean was being destroyed by the pirates, the Continental Congress agreed in 1784 to negotiate treaties with the four Barbary States . Congress appointed a special commission consisting of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin, to oversee the negotiations.

Lacking the ability to protect its merchant ships in the Mediterranean , the new American government tried to appease the Muslim slavers by agreeing to pay tribute and ransoms in order to retrieve seized American ships and buy the freedom of enslaved sailors.

Adams argued in favor of paying tribute as the cheapest way to get American commerce in the Mediterranean moving again. Jefferson was opposed. He believed there would be no end to the demands for tribute and wanted matters settled “through the medium of war.” He proposed a league of trading nations to force an end to Muslim piracy.

In 1786, Jefferson, then the American ambassador to France, and Adams, then the American ambassador to Britain , met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the “Dey of Algiers” ambassador to Britain .

The Americans wanted to negotiate a peace treaty based on Congress’ vote to appease.

During the meeting Jefferson and Adams asked the Dey’s ambassador why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

In a later meeting with the American Congress, 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 should not have acknowledged 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.”

For the following 15 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 20 percent of United States government annual revenues in 1800.

Not long after Jefferson’s inauguration as president in 1801, he dispatched a group of frigates to defend American interests in the Mediterranean , and informed Congress.

Declaring that America was going to spend “millions for defense but not one cent for tribute,” Jefferson pressed the issue by deploying American Marines and many of America ‘s best warships to the Muslim Barbary Coast.

The USS Constitution, USS Constellation, USS Philadelphia, USS Chesapeake, USS Argus, USS Syren and USS Intrepid all saw action.

In 1805, American Marines marched across the dessert from Egypt into Tripolitania, forcing the surrender of Tripoli and the freeing of all American slaves.

During the Jefferson administration, the Muslim Barbary States, crumbling as a result of intense American naval bombardment and on shore raids by Marines, finally officially agreed to abandon slavery and piracy.

Jefferson’s victory over the Muslims lives on today in the Marine Hymn, with the line, “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli , we will fight our country’s battles on the land as on the sea.”

It wasn’t until 1815 that the problem was fully settled by the total defeat of all the Muslim slave trading pirates.

Jefferson had been right. The “medium of war” was the only way to put an end to the Muslim problem. Jefferson was a “visionary” wise enough to read and learn about the enemy from their own Muslim book of jihad.~


Now, almost 209 years later, and going on 12 years following the Islamist terrorist attack of 9/11 on American soil, we find ourselves facing the same dilemma with a relentlessly cunning and seemingly eternal enemy! Yet the contrast of Presidents then and now, couldn’t be more stark or evident. Where before we had in Jefferson, a President sworn to the defense and sovereignty of the United States, today we have this loathsome and repugnant imitation occupying the peoples White House, seemingly sympathetic in his politicizing actions towards facilitating the advancement of those radical Islamist elements in the Middle East sworn to jihad and avowing the subjugation of all of western civilization. Up to and including Obama granting access to his own Administration and by extension through out critically sensitive areas of National security of our own Government to known operatives of the Muslim Brotherhood!


My thoughts on all of these current events we’re experiencing today (especially of those since the advent of this President we’re presently enduring of whom can be ascribed to questionable and obscure origins) are many, and can be best summarized in the ponderance of my closing statement:

“Where’s a Thomas Jefferson now when we need one?!?”
