Today in American History (JOHN HANCOCK)

John Hancock, born January 12, 1737, was a Boston merchant and one of the richest men in America at the time of the Revolution.  A fiery Patriot, he never hesistated to risk his wealth for the cause of independence.  The British considered him a dangerous traitor and reportedly put a price of 500 pounds on his head. 

 

Hancock served as president of the Continental Congress and was the first to sign the Declaration of…

Today in American History (ALEXANDER HAMILTON)

 

Alexander Hamilton was born on January 11 in either 1755 or 1757-the exact year is uncertain.  An orphan from the Caribbean island of Nevis, he rose with astonishing speed to become an aide-de-camp to George Washington, a hero of the Revolutionary War, and a member of the Constitutional Convention.  As the first secretary of the treasury, he helped build the new nation's financial systems.  As a leader…

"Republic Working to Set America Free"

     Some Americans are in fear.  Every day more people are losing their jobs and their homes.  Banks seem to be okay with this arrangement.  When a bank forecloses upon a house, it is an act of theft.  JP Morgan Chase officials know they are out of money.  Bank of America is out of money.  The Federal Reserve system is out of money.  

     People need to be re-educated on the " True History, "…

A NATIONAL DISTRACTION

Maybe I am a "birther". It's hard to know because there is so much conflicting information out there about the history of Barack Obama. We also know that, in Germany, he declared himself to be a citizen of the world. We know that he has refused to close our borders. I'm led to believe that, in his mind, anyone who can win our Presidency is eligible - the rules set forth in our Constitution be damned. The issue has shown us that there really isn't anyone out there who is charged with the job…

Can We End the Political Theater?

Fellow Patriots,



Most of us have fairly recently become much more interested in Politics and involved as well. We have come to a point in our history that we have found we can no longer trust that politicians are simply doing the people's business. Thanks to the unprecidented rise of technology over especially the last 15 years, and with the growth and changes in the Internet, we are finally able to check in on and even monitor, LIVE, the proceedings in Washington, D.C. from our… Continue

Today in American History (SAMUEL MORSE STARTS A COMMUNICATIONS REVOLUTION)

JANUARY 5

 

 

 

As a young man, Samuel Morse set out to become a famous painter.  His ambition was "to rival the genius of Raphael, a Michelangelo, or a Titian."  He studied at the Royal Academy in London and won acclaim by painting portraits of men such as President James Monroe and the Marquis de Lafayette.

 

In 1832, onboard a ship crossing the ocean, Morse…

Homeland Security Office Located in Wal Mart Headquarters

 

Here is something for you to think about today.  I have learned, from a friend who has a friend working at Wal Mart headquarters, that Wal Mart has a homeland security office in Wal Mart.  He stated that the fed has a standing relationship with Wal Mart dealing with the handling of the logistics of a national disaster or any other incident that requires delivery of goods to people on a national scale.  Wal Mart is now installing video screens with a recording of Janet Napolitano…

Today in American History (ELLIS ISLAND)

JANUARY 5

 

 

 

The first week of January 1892 saw the opening of the a new US immigration station on Ellis Island in New York Harbor.  A 15-year-old lass from Ireland named Annie Moore entered the United States and history when she passed through its doors, becoming the first immigrant to be processed there.  Over the next 62 years, 12 million more would follow, making Ellis Island the most famous entry point in…

Americans are angry with the direction their country is being taken, and since they elect representatives to make decisions about that direction, if you as their representative are not successful in reversing the dangerous drift toward the precipice that we now face, they will punish…

Today in American History (HAYM SALOMON)

On January 2, 1777, George Washington's army was busy fighting the British in the Second Battle of Trenton, New jersey.  While Washington fought, another great patriot was hard at work behind the scenes, aiding the American cause.  You may never have heard of Haym Salomon, but he was one of the heroes of the American Revolution.  In fact, not for Patriots like Salomon, there would never have been an United…

Government Must Be Run More Like A Business

Is education in the United States better or worse than when the Department of Education was formed? No sane person would say the state of education is better now than it was 40 or 80 years ago.  The same comparison between past and present regarding sources of energy would produce the same conclusion: under the Department of Energy our fuels for auto, trucks, jets and power plants are more…
