    This country has been pussy-footing around the concept of a comprehensive reform of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which is in actuality a dog whistle for "do nothing." Meanwhile, our porous borders are allowing criminals, drugs, and disease to enter this country with the force of a flood! Keep this in mind: Abraham Lincoln is often paraphrased as saying, “The best way to get a bad law repealed is to enforce it strictly.” Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution requires the President to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” This clause, known as the Take Care Clause,...

    GREAT WALL OF CHINA By 220AD, the Later Eastern Han Dynasty had extended sections of the Great Wall of China along its Mongolian border. This resulted in the Northern Huns attacking west instead of east. This caused a domino effect of displaced tribes migrating west across Central Asia, and overrunning the Western Roman Empire. OPEN BORDERS Illegal immigrants poured across the Roman borders: Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Franks, Anglos, Saxons, Alemanni, Thuringians, Rugians, Jutes, Picts, Burgundians, Lombards, Alans, Vandals, as well as African Berbers and Arab raiders.

    Imperial Japan's emperor claimed to be an incarnate divinity who was to be obeyed completely. It was forbidden for his subjects to criticize him. The Imperial Japanese Empire he inherited grew into one of the largest maritime empires in history, becoming the 3rd largest naval power and having the 9th largest economy in the world. In 1910, Imperial Japan annexed Korea, and in 1918 took control of Russian ports in Siberia. In 1937, Imperial Japan's Army killed an estimated 200,000 in Nanking, China. In 1941, over 3,000 Americans died when Imperial Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. In 1942, over 20,000 Americans...

    LABOR DAY To appreciate it, one needs to know the history preceding it. At the time the United States was founded, most people were farmers or worked in trades, such as blacksmiths, cobblers, bakers, upholsterers, etc. Then, the Industrial Revolution began when the Scottish inventor James Watt developed a steam engine to pump water out of coal mines. Steam and water were soon harnessed in the early 19th century to power pumps, railroads, ships, and factories, which mass produced products, such as textiles. This led to the creation of factories which could mass produce items inexpensively. Originally, there was no...

    The oath of military enlistment states: "I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

Three months later, Washington discovered Dr. Benjamin Church had been spying for the British. He wrote coded messages of the Continental Army's plans and leaked them to British officer, Major Crane . When Dr. Church was exposed as the leaker, Washington...

    The Pulitzer Prize winning book Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies, written by Jared Diamond (1997), documented that throughout human history, hunter-gathers were always subdued by people groups who had transitioned to agriculture. The first plants to be cultivated were: wheat, barley, rye, oats, lentils, peas, chickpeas, beans, almonds, and olives. Flax was cultivated as a source for linseed oil and fiber for clothes, ropes, rugs, bedding, curtains, and sails. Agricultural domestication of plants led to the domestication of animals, such as: donkey, horse, camel, pig, chicken, cattle and oxen. Harvests led to storage techniques, methods of...

    King George III's British army was forced to evacuate Boston. They headed to New York. General George Washington responded by moving American troops to Long Island, New York and fortifying Brooklyn Heights. Enthusiasm was high as Washington's ranks swelled to nearly 20,000. Before long, hundreds of British ships filled New York's harbor, carrying 32,000 troops. It was one of the largest invasion forces in history to that date. The thousands of wooden masts of the British ships were described as looking like a forest of trees. Washington wrote to his younger brother John Augustine Washington, May 31, 1776: "We expect...
