American History And Slavery – 2

Did Christopher Columbus corrupt the Americas?

Much has been said about how Christopher Columbus corrupted the entire areas of North, Central and South America. A question should be considered, such as, “how could such a small contingent of Columbus’s guest explorers and travelers” be so successful as to ruin the lives of people, who lived as far south as the southern tip of South America, all of the way to the northern tip of Canada? Facts do not allow such a conclusion for the wicked prowess of these people who explored and settled in small coastal areas of Central and South America. Columbus never traveled to North America (USA and Canada). At the time of Columbus’s voyages, the Americas were inhabited by Indigenous Americans, descendants of Paleo-Indians who crossed Beringia from Asia to North America; such people were hardened survivors, who would not be easily manipulated by European explorers and colonists. A greater study of the peoples of the Americas that traveled from Asia to Alaska, can be found in an article that I wrote, and is located at the bottom of this page.

The following information shows pertinent information that relates to the four voyages of Columbus, to include maps that depict his areas of exploration. You will notice dates of voyages, numbers of ships, and numbers of people on each journey. One thing that you will notice is that among the people who traveled with the crews of Columbus, is that none of them were identified as being slaves.

Columbus was an Italian-born navigator sailing for the Crown of Castile (Spain) in search of a westward route to the Indies. Therefore, the colonists that Columbus took to the new world would have been primarily Catholic. In addition to this, plans were made to maintain friars and clergymen. Based on this paragraph’s information, it is easy to see why Central and South America have such a large Catholic populace.

Voyages of Christopher Columbus

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyages_of_Christopher_Columbus

From the above link, the following information was extracted.

In 1492, a Spanish-based transatlantic maritime expedition led by Italian explorer Christopher Columbus encountered the Americas, continents which were virtually unknown in Europe, Asia and Africa and were outside the Old World political and economic system. The four voyages of Columbus led to the widespread knowledge that a continent existed west of Europe and east of Asia. This breakthrough in geographical knowledge inaugurated a period of exploration, conquest, colonization, biological exchange, and trans-Atlantic trade, whose effects and consequences persist to the present, and are sometimes cited as the start of the modern era.

It was long believed that Columbus had been the first European explorer to reach the Americas, but in fact he had been preceded by the Viking expedition led by Leif Erikson in the 11th century. However, Columbus’s voyages were the ones that led to ongoing European contact with the Americas.

Columbus was an Italian-born navigator sailing for the Crown of Castile (Spain) in search of a westward route to the Indies, the vaguely rumored East Asian sources of spices and other precious oriental goods obtainable only through arduous overland routes. Although he did not realize it, this search failed when he encountered the New World between Europe and Asia. Columbus made a total of four voyages to the Americas between 1492 and 1502.

At the time of Columbus’ voyages, the Americas were inhabited by Indigenous Americans, descendants of Paleo-Indians who crossed Beringia from Asia to North America.

First voyage (August 3, 1492 – March 15, 1493) Christopher Columbus, Three Ships, Ninety Sailors.

The map of Columbus’s first exploration of the Americas is shown in the following link; you will notice a pause.

Second voyage (September 24, 1493 – June 11, 1496) Columbus, Seventeen Ships, 120 Colonists,

Before he left Spain on his second voyage, Columbus had been directed by Ferdinand and Isabella to maintain friendly, even loving, relations with the natives.He set sail from Cádiz, Spain, on September 24, 1493.

The map of Columbus’s second exploration of the Americas is shown in the following link.

Third voyage (May 30, 1498 -Nov 1500), Columbus, Six Ships and The Following Individuals.

After his second journey, Columbus had requested that 330 people be sent to stay permanently (though voluntarily) on Hispaniola, all on the King’s pay. Specifically, he asked for 100 men to work as wood men soldiers and laborers, 50 farmers, 40 squires, 30 sailors, 30 cabin boys, 20 goldsmiths, 10 gardeners, 20 handymen, and 30 women. In addition to this, plans were made to maintain friars and clergymen, a physician, a pharmacist, an herbalist, and musicians for entertaining the colonists. Fearing that the King was going to restrict money allotted for wages, Columbus suggested that Spanish criminals be pardoned in exchange for a few years unpaid service in Hispaniola, and the King agreed to this. A pardon for the death penalty would require 2 years of service, and one year of service was required for lesser crimes. They also instructed that those who had been sentenced to exile would also be redirected to be exiled in Hispaniola.

The map of Columbus’s third exploration of the Americas is shown in the following link.

Fourth voyage (May 12, 1502 – November 7, 1504) Columbus, Four Ships, and 147 men.

The map of Columbus’s fourth exploration of the Americas is shown in the following link.

American History And Slavery – Part 1

“The Spanish, Portuguese and English were co-conspirators in what we would now consider a crime against humanity.” 

The above, and following quote, come from the article on slavery that follows the American History Timeline.

“To ignore what had been happening with relative frequency in the broader Atlantic world over the preceding 100 years or so understates the real brutality of the ongoing slave trade, of which the 1619 group were undoubtedly a part, and minimizes the significant African presence in the Atlantic world to that point,” Guasco explains. “People of African descent have been ‘here’ longer than the English colonies.”

SLAVERY

America’s History Of Slavery Began Long Before Jamestown 1619

The following information was extracted from a much larger article from the following link.

https://www.history.com/news/american-slavery-before-jamestown-1619

In late August 1619, the White Lion, an English privateer commanded by John Jope, sailed into Point Comfort and dropped anchor in the James River. Virginia colonist John Rolfe documented the arrival of the ship and “20 and odd” Africans on board. His journal entry is immortalized in textbooks, with 1619 often used as a reference point for teaching the origins of slavery in America. But the history, it seems, is far more complicated than a single date.

It is believed the first Africans brought to the colony of Virginia, 400 years ago this month (August 26, 2019), were Kimbundu-speaking peoples from the kingdom of Ndongo, located in part of present-day Angola.

As noted by Rolfe, when the White Lion arrived in what is now present-day Hampton, Virginia, the Africans were offloaded and “bought for victuals.” Governor Sir George Yeardley and head merchant Abraham Piersey acquired the majority of the captives, most of whom were kept in Jamestown, America’s first permanent English settlement.

The arrival of these “20 and odd” Africans to England’s mainland American colonies in 1619 is now a focal point in history curricula. The date and their story have become symbolic of slavery’s roots, despite captive Africans likely being present in the Americas in the 1400s and as early as 1526 in the region that would become the United States.

Some experts, including Michael Guasco, a professor at Davidson College and author of Slaves and Englishmen: Human Bondage in the Early Modern Atlantic World, caution about placing too much emphasis on the year 1619.

“To ignore what had been happening with relative frequency in the broader Atlantic world over the preceding 100 years or so understates the real brutality of the ongoing slave trade, of which the 1619 group were undoubtedly a part, and minimizes the significant African presence in the Atlantic world to that point,” Guasco explains. “People of African descent have been ‘here’ longer than the English colonies.”

European trade of enslaved Africans began in the 1400s.

Africans also played a role in England’s early colonization efforts. Enslaved Africans may have been on board Sir Francis Drake’s fleet when he arrived at Roanoke Island in 1586.

“The English took note of their fellow Europeans’ role in enslavement and the slave trade,” says Mark Summers, a public historian at Jamestown Rediscovery. In the context of the broader Atlantic world, the colony and institution of slavery developed from a chain of events involving multiple actors.

While Heywood and Thornton acknowledge that 1619 remains a key date for slavery in America, they also argue that focusing too much on the first enslaved people at Jamestown can distort our understanding of history.

In 1619, slavery, as codified by law, did not yet exist in Virginia or elsewhere in places that would later become the United States.

As Guasco puts it, “The Spanish, Portuguese and English were co-conspirators in what we would now consider a crime against humanity.”

America History And Slavery – Part 2 will provide additional information that will help us to understand the facts of slavery, as it was introduced into the Americas.

The Making Of America 3 – Events Leading To The Constitution – Conflict Today

Jay Sekulow SLAMS Nadler in Senate Impeachment Trial. Jan 22, 2020. TruthNation. Tump lawyer Jay Sekulow destroys Jerry Nadler for saying “executive privilege and other nonsense”. Sekulow is arguing that not giving documents and violating executive privilege in order to offer up witnesses is not nonsense, it’s Constitutional.

https://jewsforjesus.org/our-stories/jay-sekulow-how-a-jewish-lawyer-from-brooklyn-came-to-believe-in-jesus/
Jay Sekulow is a Messianic Jew, which means that he was born Jewish but is now a born again believer in Christ. His discussion in the opening video is a defense of our Constitution. Jerald Nadler, and other Democrats, have made an assault on the U.S. Constitution, with a liberal attack arrow being aimed at the Bill of Rights, as Jay Sekulow very clearly pointed out in his comments that were made to the members of the U.S. Senate in January 22, 2020, in the hearings where Democrats want to remove our President from office.

The Democrats in our country have made an unrelenting attack on the formation of our country, to include our Constitution. I have heard government educated types say that the colonists should never have declared their independence from Great Britain. In this article I will identify some of the things that were matters of oppression against the people whom had made their homes in America. The following timeline shows some of the things that were serous problems that were being forced on the Colonies; such things were in the minds of our founding fathers of the U.S.A. when they wrote our Constitution. Notice that the colonists eventually separated themselves from the oppressive British government. In this article, we will also discuss today’s attacks on our Constitution by Democrats.

Consider the following American History Timeline that leads to the formation of the United States Of America. I doubt that many students in American “government schools” are made aware of the true founding of America, with the establishing of the United States of America. Consider 1765, Mar 24 and the Bill of Rights. http://www.datesandevents.org/events-timelines/14-american-history-timeline.htm

The “BILL OF RIGHTS.” The protection of citizens from the U.S. Government.

https://www.ushistory.org/us/18a.asp

Ten Amendments

These first ten amendments to the Constitution became known as the Bill of Rights, and still stand as both the symbol and foundation of American ideals of individual liberty, LIMITED GOVERNMENT, and the rule of law. Most of the Bill of Rights concerns legal protections for those accused of crimes. For instance, the fourth through eighth amendments provide protection from unreasonable SEARCH AND SEIZURE, the privilege against SELF-INCRIMINATION, and the right to a FAIR AND SPEEDY JURY TRIAL that will be free from unusual punishments. The last two amendments, respectively, spell out that this list of individual protections is not meant to exclude other ones, and, by contrast, set forth that all powers claimed by the federal government had to be expressly stated in the Constitution.

The FIRST AMENDMENT, perhaps the broadest and most famous of the Bill of Rights, establishes a range of political and civil rights including those of FREE SPEECH, assembly, press, and religion.

Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

RE: RELIGION. Notice that this is the first protection for citizens against government overreach and control. The Democrat party often uses “Freedom Of Religion” to mean “Freedom From Religion.” There is no “great wall of separation,” as Democrats often state in their arguments against U.S. citizens who claim such First Amendment protection from our government. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both used the phrase, “Freedom of Worship.” Such an misunderstanding allows us to meet freely for worship, but puts controls on taking the knowledge that we learn in church services, by restricting an exercise of that which we have learned to evangelize “outside of a place of worship.” The wording of this constitutional right is very clear; it does not require a constitutional lawyer to make its meaning known. Consider the following linked information on why the colonists feared a government control of religion.

https://www.landofthebrave.info/glorious-revolution.htm
What effect did the Glorious Revolution have on the American Colonies?
The Glorious Revolution had a significant effect on the American colonies. King James II had created as many problems in the American colonies as he had for England. Under the rule of King James II the colonists were under the direct control of the monarch. James II ruled as he saw fit and there was no one to stop him:

Over half the governments of the colonies were under the direct control of James II.
James II refused to recognized the colonial charters that had been granted to the colonists.
He did not allow American colonists any say over laws and taxes.
As a staunch Catholic, James was attempting to replace Protestant institutions with Catholic ones.
The vast majority of Colonists were Protestants – Only 1.6% of the population were Catholics.
The Protestants detested the Catholics and feared the bloody persecutions they had left behind in Europe.

RE: FREEDOM OF SPEECH. No one has the freedom to go into a crowded theater and yell “FIRE!” No one has the right to go to a place of business and yell obscenities. Notice that the protections for free speech deal with government control of speech. As citizens, the government can not control our speech, regardless of agreement or disagreement with its content. Consider the protections of our speech that was on the minds of the colonists. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_speech_in_the_United_States

England. During colonial times, English speech regulations were rather restrictive. The English criminal common law of seditious libel made criticizing the government a crime. Lord Chief Justice John Holt, writing in 1704–1705, explained the rationale for the prohibition: “For it is very necessary for all governments that the people should have a good opinion of it.” The objective truth of a statement in violation of the libel law was not a defense. Until 1694 England had an elaborate system of licensing; no publication was allowed without the accompaniment of the government-granted license.

At Charlottesville, VA, a permit was granted for citizens to peacefully assemble and voice their objections concerning plans to remove a Confederate statue. Fake news addressed those whom had been granted the permit to assemble as, “white nationalists.” However, permission to protest is not based on anyone’s agreement, or disagreement, with the reason to assemble and protest on public property. The guarantee of FREE SPEECH if that If I can go there, you can go there too.

Scenes From the Deadly Unrest in Virginia

RE: FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. As is stated below, a FREE PRESS is needed to inform citizens of that which the government is doing. But, today, the press, which is primarily FAKE NEWS, has sided with the Democrat Party and liberal causes to oppose the opinions and freedoms that conservatives hold important to them. A key example is the fact that fake news has attacked our current President everyday of his presidency with false information, and biased guests and media reporters. The following information shows the concern that the colonists had concerning a free press that could honestly report on the actions of the developing government of “the United States of America.”
https://www.history.com/topics/united-states-constitution/freedom-of-the-press

Freedom of the press—the right to report news or circulate opinion without censorship from the government—was considered “one of the great bulwarks of liberty,” by the Founding Fathers of the United States. Americans enjoy freedom of the press as one of the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment.

The First Amendment, which protects freedom of the press, was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the Bill of Rights.

The Bill of Rights provides constitutional protection for certain individual liberties, including freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the right to assemble and petition the government.

Origins Of Free Press. Before the thirteen colonies declared independence from Great Britain, the British government attempted to censor the American media by prohibiting newspapers from publishing unfavorable information and opinions.

Amendment II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

RE: THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. Consider the words, “TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS,” and the colonists’ concerns over the need for this amendment. Red Flag legislation violates this amendment, which is happening in the state of Virginia. Notice that Democrats favor striking this amendment from the Bill of Rights. https://www.independent.org/publications/books/summary.asp?id=72

Other legislation that has been filed includes banning indoor shooting ranges at offices where there are more than 50 employees. That would include a shooting range at the NRA headquarters, which is located in northern Virginia.
https://wset.com/news/at-the-capitol/guns-rights-bills-killed-in-house-by-virginia-democrats

Independence being declared in 1776, the states began adopting bills of rights, several of which recognized “the right of the people” to have arms for various purposes, such as self defense and the common defense. While some states saw no need for declarations of rights, the liberty of bearing arms was universally recognized. At the same time, militias composed of all male citizens were seen as necessary counter-weights to the threat of a standing army.

Consider the need for personal protection. Democrats ignore the violence in Baltimore: 12 shot, five dead, in single day of shootings in Baltimore https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/12-shot-dead-single-day-shootings-baltimore-68232001

Consider the need for for personal protection in Chicago: 30 people have been killed this year. That is 9 more than 2019.
Data through Sunday, January 26 https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-chicago-homicides-data-tracker-htmlstory.html
Again, Democrats ignore the fact of violence and murder that can not be prevented by unarmed citizens.

During the Obama administration, law enforcement personnel were constantly being verbally assaulted by Democrats. As noble as police officers have shown themselves to be, there are not enough of them to protect citizens from violent attacks.

AG Sessions: Chicago Murder Rate Spiked Due to Obama’s Consent Decree: By Melanie Arter | September 21, 2018 | 3:46pm EDT
https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/melanie-arter/sessions-chicago-murder-rate-spiked-due-obamas-consent-decree-police

(CNSNews.com) – Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday blamed the spike in murders in Chicago on the Obama administration’s consent decree, which called for police reforms in response to police harassment and brutality claims.

“From 2014 to 2016, the violent crime rate went up by nearly seven percent. Assaults and rape went up nearly 10 percent. Murder shot up by more than 20 percent. Sadly, this was a nationwide phenomenon, but Chicago is, without a doubt, the most dramatic example,” he said.

Consider Detroit violence. https://apnews.com/c43536132a0996ba53d763cae281c084

DETROIT (AP) — Homicides in Detroit increased last year…End-of-year statistics show 273 homicides were committed in 2019 — up from 261 the year before, Chief James Craig said Friday. Detroit’s 767 nonfatal shootings last year were more than the 755 in 2018, while robberies also were up in 2019 — 2,337 to 2,309. Gang violence was responsible for an uptick in shootings in July and late November into December.

The attack on the Bill of Rights will continue by Democrats. As was seen in the last video, high-profile Democrats viciously lie in attacks on the NRA. Democrats are lying to our children and grandchildren about NRA members; I am an NRA member. Consider the mission statements of the National Rifle Association and the National Association for Gun Rights.

The fight for America to become a free country began with the Revolutionary War, and the events that led up to that war. The freedom of our country is under attack today by the Democrat Party. To vote for a Democrat is to vote against the Bill of Rights and the colonists that fought to make the U.S.A. a free country. Amendments three through ten will be discussed in the next article of “The Making Of America,” and will continue to show the attacks of Democrats on our Bill of Rights.

https://www.newsmax.com/fastfeatures/national-association-for-gun-rights-nra-differ/2014/10/12/id/600067/

The mission statements of two of the United States’ top pro-gun lobbies, the National Association for Gun Rights and the National Rifle Association, sound very similar.

The NRA’s mission statement, summarized from its bylaws, is: “To protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, especially with reference to the inalienable right of the individual American citizen guaranteed by such Constitution to acquire, possess, collect, exhibit, transport, carry, transfer ownership of, and enjoy the right to use arms.” The statement also includes a focus on promoting public safety, training in the safe and efficient handling of small arms, hunter safety, and shooting sport promotion.

The National Association for Gun Rights’ mission statement says the organization was “established to promote firearms education, legal advocacy and the promotion of the Second Amendment. In the compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that profits. In the compromise between food and poison, it is only death that wins.” The NAGR also “follows the courts closely” for purposes of legal advocacy and is working to start training programs nationwide.

At the writing of this article, our President is at a rally in Iowa. Lee Greenwood is singing, “God Bless The USA.” The crowd is shouting, “USA USA USA.” Yes. It is a shame that Democrats can’t sing in agreement with that wonderful song. May God protect our country, and may He richly bless The United States Of America.

The Making Of America – 2 – Native Americans (?) – They Came Here Too!

Click on the image and see the text. Click on the arrow and see the video. See video details at the bottom of the article.

Did they just pop up out of the ground; or, did they come from somewhere else?

Let’s consider the true “Native Americans,” whom should be more correctly known as the “First Americans.” We should also know that these true First Americans, “came here too,” from Asia, as will be shown in this article. We will consider from where they came, and who they were. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Americas (See History Of the America).

History of the Americas

The prehistory of the Americas (North, South, and Central America, and the Caribbean) begins with people migrating to these areas from Asia during the height of an Ice Age. These groups are generally believed to have been isolated from the people of the “Old World” until the coming of Europeans in the 10th century from Iceland led by Leif Erikson and with the voyages of Christopher Columbus in 1492.

The ancestors of today’s American Indigenous peoples were the Paleo-Indians; they were hunter-gatherers who migrated into North America. The most popular theory asserts that migrants came to the Americas via Beringia, the land mass now covered by the ocean waters of the Bering Strait. Small lithic stage peoples followed megafauna like bison, mammoth (now extinct), and caribou, thus gaining the modern nickname “big-game hunters.” Groups of people may also have traveled into North America on shelf or sheet ice along the northern Pacific coast.

There are many things of America, and its history, of which children (and their parents), have no knowledge. Consider the details of this article, which relate to the founding of our nation. Consider the negative liberal progressive bias that comes in attack form against the European exploration and settling of the Americas. The opening video is evidence of the lack of correctly taught education that is a product of “government schools.” I have not heard of any anti-Asian bias regarding Asian exploration and settling of America. By the way, God made access available for Asians to cross from Asia to North America. He performed a similar miracle when He led fleeing Israelites from Egypt to Saudi Arabia and Mt. Sinai. https://equippingblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/24/israel-9-exodus-14/
There are other supporting articles about the crossing of the Israelites into Saudi Arabia that can be found by navigating around the Israel 9 – Exodus 14 post.

The preceding History of the Americas is incomplete without information that identifies the origin of the people of Asia that entered into North America. Such a discussion can be found in my Equipping Site article:
https://equippingblog.wordpress.com/2019/07/06/honoring-the-seventh-day-keeping-the-law-a-discussion/

North America inhabited approximately in 2000 B.C.

Prior to the time of the Jews’ exodus from Egypt, people had already migrated from Siberia into North America.

The following chronology is that of the bloodline of Noah to Shem to Abraham (Genesis 5:32, 10:1, 11:11-26), and of the descendants of Abraham. After the flood (Gen 7:11-13; 21-22) God told Noah’s sons, “Shem, Ham and Japheth,” to replenish the earth (Gen 9:1, 18; 10:1, 2348 B.C.). Abraham fathered Ishmael (Genesis 16:15, 1911 B.C.), and “Isaac” (Genesis 17:21, 1898 B.C.), who (Isaac) would be Abraham’s covenant son. The Arab nations are of the seed of Ishmael; the Israelites are of the covenant seed of Isaac. Therefore, the Jews are God’s chosen people (Deuteronomy 14:2). Therefore, the Law and the Sabbath relate to the Israelites, whom became known as Jews, and only to the Jews/Israelites. However, there are moral laws of God that are found in the Law, which relate to everyone, such as murder (Exodus 20:13), adultery (Exodus 20:14) and homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22), with eternal punishment for those whom maintain such lifestyles that are not of God’s design, permission or acceptance (1 Cor 6:9-10….11).

Japheth’s and Shem’s descendants found their way into the northern regions we now call Russia, Alaska, Canada, North and South America … Native Americans, Eskimos began settling the regions called Alaska, Canada, and the Americas around 2000 BC. These Shemites would have been from Abraham through Ishmael, who was not the covenant son of Abraham (who was known as a Hebrew, Genesis 14:13).

There was no nation present in North America when the Asian people crossed over into North America from Siberia. No North American nation of “Native Americans,” more correctly identified as “First Americans,” existed at the time of the explorations of Europeans in the Americas. None of our European exploring ancestors conquered any existing established “Native American” nations when they began setting in the Americas. No Asian exploring ancestors conquered any existing established “Native American” nations when they began settling in the Americas. Liberals love “the survival of the fittest,” except when it doesn’t meet with their goals of rewriting history, especially that of American colonialism.

Consider the following American History Timeline of exploration. I doubt that many students in American “government schools” are made aware of the true founding of America, with the following establishing of the United States of America.

Consider the following details that relate to the effects of “government school education” in the United States of America.

Anti-American Education Bias.

The liberal argument against much of the United States is that “we” (I guess of European descent), came to America, destroyed the “land of the Native Americans,” took away their nation, and have caused everything evil to come upon the “Native Americans.” As is shown in the opening video, our education system does not teach a correct and unbiased American History. The U.S. Department of Education has shown itself to be an inefficient, anti-God, anti-U.S.A., anti-Israel, anti-parent, anti-family, creation of the Carter administration. The result is that many such “ill-educated” citizens are basing their voting habits on an orchestrated negative bias of American History, which is being taught by liberal/progressive, “government schools” that are governed by the U.S. Department of Education. Therefore, if we want the education of our children to rise above the interests of the liberal government school system and teacher unions, we must continue to elect a non-democrat president, and elect a non-democrat congress so that the President’s choice for Education Secretary can not be blocked. See “Taxpayer Money Wasted,” below, which shows the inefficient spending that took place under the Bush 43 administration. See The Problem With Teacher Unions, below.

Taxpayer Money Wasted.

Under President George W. Bush, the department primarily focused on elementary and secondary education, expanding its reach through the No Child Left Behind Act. The department’s budget increased by $14 billion between 2002 and 2004, from $46 billion to $60 billion. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_Education

The Problems with Teacher Unions.

Not everyone agrees that teacher unions are the solution – in fact, in an age of serious education reform discussion, many believe they are the primary problem instead. In a report on Fox News, John Stossel states that unions may be good for teachers, but they are bad for students. He refers to an ex-police detective in New Jersey, Jim Smith, who now makes a living investigating “bad” teachers and working through the union-led process of firing them. He describes the process he went through to get rid of a teacher who allegedly hit students. https://www.publicschoolreview.com/blog/are-teacher-unions-a-help-or-hindrance-to-public-education

Opening Video Details.

How ignorant is my generation?. Bodawg. A ‘Mark Dice’ style interview where I ask students at my high school basic knowledge questions. How screwed is our generation? Watch and decide for yourself.

At the time of this article being written, Democrats are trying to destroy our President. The only thing that overshadows their ignorance of the founding of our nation is their hatred of our President and the nation that he is trying to protect, to include the voters that put our President in office.

For a closing song, I am going to use a video that I am sure is very offensive to those that support the corrupt Democrat machine. But, for their benefit, I am going to put that video in this post. May God bless the USA.

RockNRollMedia Nov 5, 2018.
The standard opening song played at each campaign event with President Trump is Lee Greenwood’s recording of “God Bless The USA.” Lee Greenwood surprised the president with his live performance of the song at this MAGA Rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee Sunday night, November 4, 2018 only two days before the mid-term elections. The president was there to support Republican candidates including GOP candidate for Senator, Rep. Marsha Blackburn.

The Making Of America – 1 – Introduction

Click on the image to see the text. Click on the arrow to see the video.

As a student in Junior High School and High School, I was taught Civics, which explained the formation of our country. During the Carter administration, the Department of Education was established, which made education a political matter. At present time, the Secretary of Education is 15th in the line of succession to the Presidency. Civics is no longer taught in many schools, without putting a presidential political spin on the subject of the greatness of our country, or lack thereof. Cursive writing and sentence diagramming are gone. The “Three Rs” of education (reading, writing, arithmetic) have suffered greatly, as have other subjects of instruction. Instead, with a liberal President’s cabinet, our children can be expected to receive an education that reflects a mindset of homosexuality and abortion on demand, with no emphasis being placed on the colonial formation of the United States of America. Far in the past is the teaching of the greatness of our nation, which is the best nation that has ever been formed in our world. Some may wonder why children in our public schools (aka government schools) despised the school lunches that the Obama Department Of Education directed for them to consume; the reason is due to the Department of Education’s governing of every aspect of our schools’ operation. As a student, in elementary through secondary education, I didn’t have a problem with the meals that were prepared by the schools that I attended. During the Obama Administration, the First Lady spearheaded the change in menus to meet her view of nutrition; the kids hated that change.

The following description of the opening video shows very clearly that our “government schools” are failing in teaching our children the key elements of fundamental education. Of key concern for parents should be that their children are being taught, with truth and accuracy, the things of our country that will lead them to understand the greatness of the development of our nation. Such an education will create an informed citizenry and help them to make wise decisions when they vote for people who may lead our country. Our nation, as established, was lead in a direction of the Judeo-Christian fabric that made the United States Of America a nation that has been the desired destination of people all around the world who should want to immigrate, assimilate, and become Americans, and not “hyphenated Americans.”

Considering the opening video:

How Well Do Americans Know Their Presidents? Feb 19, 2018. PragerU. Happy #PresidentsDay! In honor of the occasion, PragerU’s Will Witt quizzes the inhabitants of Hollywood on America’s presidents! The results are not inspiring.

Considering the course of this study on the formation of our nation:

We will follow a Judeo-Christian perspective, and will go far back in world history to understand the true identity of “native Americans.” Current events will be included, if they are relevant. Being a “baby boomer,” I will be sharing facts that should be known, and acknowledged, by other boomers whom are key figures in American education, government and media circles. However, many liberal members of those three groups seem to have forgotten facts of our country’s establishment and development that don’t agree with their ungodly and progressive mindset of the direction that Americans should desire and be led. The left has as its agenda, an attack on the Bible, and anything Christian or Jewish. Such an agenda leads to its attack on the formation of the United States, its constitution, its laws, its borders, and its God-ordained distinctive roles for men and women. The attack on God’s people filters down to our children through many democrats in government, media, schools and entertainment outlets. As parents and grandparents, we must take the initiative in educating our children and grandchildren as to the truth of America and its core Jewish and Christian values. As opposed to the words of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, our Constitution’s Bill of Rights guarantees, “Freedom Of Religion (FOR),” as opposed to their statements of “Freedom Of Worship (FOW).” FOW guarantees a meeting place. FOR guarantees that we can take with us from our places of worship, that which we have learned, and use it to evangelize, “in the Name of Christ.” If we don’t tell such truths to our children, no one else will do that for us, to include many liberal and watered-down, “so called” churches.

The goal of “Remaking America” by Obama. The liberals loved it; the conservatives ignored it. We must be vigilant, or risk losing our country.

Obama: Transforming America. By Victor Davis Hanson – October 1, 2013

Consider the statements of the Obamas, that were made leading up to the first election of BHO. Mihelle’s words were the most threatening to our Republic.

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” — Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

“We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” — Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008

I must say how blessed I was by the public schools that I attended as a child. My teachers were thorough, serious and honest with the subjects that they taught. The names and personalities of those special people are deeply embedded in my mind, and will forever remain there.
