The Right To Defend Freedom

Thomas Jefferson’s Response to Muslims in 1801 is More Important Today Than Ever

For those of you who think that this trouble with ISIS & the Taliban is just "radical Islamic terrorism" and new...remember, those who do not remember history, are ultimately doomed to repeat it!

America’s first war with Islamic terrorists should be remembered.
The First Barbary War (1801–1805) also known as the Tripolitan War or the Barbary Coast War, was the first of two wars fought between the United States and the Northwest African Berber Muslim states known collectively as the Barbary States. These were the Ottoman provinces of Tripoli, Algiers, and Tunis, which were enjoying a large autonomy, as well as the independent Sultanate of Morocco. The war was fought because U.S. President Thomas Jefferson refused to pay the high tributes demanded by the Barbary states and because they were seizing American merchant ships and enslaving the crews for high ransoms. It was the first declared war the United States fought on foreign land and seas.
In 1786, Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Great Britain. They asked this ‘diplomat’ by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved her citizens and why the Muslims held such hostility toward this new nation, with which neither Tripoli nor any of the other Barbary Coast nations had any previous contact. The answer was quite revealing. Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja (the ambassador) replied that Islam:
“Was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Qur’an, 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.”
That is indeed quite revealing. Yet, America continued paying ransoms to these terrorists for the next fifteen years or so. Until Jefferson became President. Then, the Pasha (leader) of Tripoli sent a demand to the new leader for an immediate payment of $225,000 and $25,000 per year on an ongoing basis. Jefferson flatly refused, leading the Pasha to cut down the flagpole of the American consulate and declaring war on the United States. The rest of the terrorist states followed suit.
Jefferson had formerly been against raising a navy, but this soon changed as he was determined to meet force with force. A squadron of vessels was sent to the area and Congress authorized Jefferson to have the US ships seize all vessels and goods that belonged to the Pasha and anything else deemed necessary. As they saw the US was actually committed to the fight, Algiers and Tunis quickly abandoned the war and allegiance to Tripoli. Obviously, the US won the war. In fact, this was the reason why the line “to the shores of Tripoli” was added to the Marine Corps hymn.
OORAHHH!!!
SEMPER FI!

54 Percent of Children Suffer Disabilities Caused by Vaccination

Vaccine choice is a fundamental human right. American children are experiencing an epidemic of poor health, with 54% of our children suffering a chronic illness or neuro-developmental disability. Nearly 9 million children have skin allergies. Eight million have respiratory allergies. Seven million have asthma. Five million have a learning disability. One in 400 is diabetic. And 1 in 50 kids has autism. What you may not know is that science links all these chronic illnesses to vaccines. Vaccine injuries are real and some are life-threatening. The U.S. government acknowledges that children have been severely injured and killed by vaccines.
Listen to the video below, it will open your eyes to information that our government, health care system, the CDC, big PHARMA and mainstream media will not report nor readily admit to knowing.


MSG Used as a Stabilizer in Vaccines

by Rishma Parpia

When you think of monosodium glutamate (MSG), what is the first thing that comes to mind? More than likely it is Chinese cuisine, however, this same ingredient is also found in several other food products we use everyday. Almost all processed foods on the grocery store shelves ranging from soups to crackers to meats contain MSG to enhance their flavor.

MSG is also an ingredient in vaccines.

To be able to make fully informed decisions regarding vaccination for you or your child, it is essential to evaluate what is and is not known about vaccine ingredients and their short and long term effects on the human body.

What is Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)?
Monosodium glutamate, also known as monosodium salt, monohydrate and L- monosodium glutamate, is the sodium salt of a common amino acid known as glutamic acid (glutamate).1 2 Glutamic acid is naturally present in our bodies and occurs naturally many foods such as tomatoes and cheeses.2

Glutamate is one of several amino acids linked into the chains of protein in the body.3 In the body, some amino acids are free to float around by themselves while others are linked into proteins to perform vital functions.3 For instance, some amino acids serve as neurotransmitters carrying nerve cell impulses throughout the body; they act as chemical messengers relaying news from one nerve cell to another.3 

Glutamate is one such neurotransmitter that carries messages throughout the brain triggering nerve cells to fire. Other neurotransmitters such as gamma amino butyric acid then communicate with the firing nerve cells signaling them to cease firing when necessary, thus creating an important balance.3 In the presence of excess glutamate, this balance tips due to overstimulation of nerve cells and causes them to die.3

The Role of MSG in Vaccines
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Vaccine Excipient and Media Summary lists five vaccines that contain monosodium glutamate:

Adenovirus
Influenza (FluMist) Quadrivalent
MMRV (ProQuad)
Varicella (Varivax)
Zoster (Shingles–Zostavax)4
So what has MSG got to do with vaccines?

MSG is used as a stabilizer in vaccines. Stabilizers are added to vaccines to help the vaccine remain unchanged when it is exposed to heat, light, acidity or humidity.5

MSG: An Excitotoxin Like Aspartame
Russell Blaylock, MD, a board-certified neurosurgeon and author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills has extensively studied the effects of MSG on the brain.6 He identifies MSG an excitotoxin. Excitotoxins are food and taste-enhancing chemicals found in many food products.

Aside from MSG, other excitotoxins include hydrolyzed vegetable protein, aspartame (a food sweetener sold on the market as NutraSweet) and cysteine.6 Excitotoxins overstimulate certain neurons in the brain causing them to continue firing until they tire themselves and die.6 

This overexcitement of neurons can cause brain damage of varying degrees and can potentially trigger degenerative diseases such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease), Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s, all of which develop gradually.6

Several studies have shown the link between MSG consumption and severe headaches as a side effect.7 8 A 2009 study published in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine used dissociated mouse neuronal culture and cell injury assays to determine whether relevant concentrations of MSG induce cell swelling or death.9 The study explains the mechanism behind MSG induced headaches that affect many people who have low tolerance to MSG. The authors state:

Using neuronal culture technique and cell injury assay, we studied the effect of MSG on mouse cortical neurons, a commonly used in vitro preparation for cell injury studies. We demonstrated that incubation with MSG, at clinical relevant concentrations, induced swelling and injury of mature neurons. This finding may partially explain the headache induced by MSG intake.9
They go on to explain:

Glutamate is an endogenous neurotransmitter required for a variety of physiological functions of neurons. Increased release of endogenous glutamate has been suggested to play an important role in neuronal injury associated with a number of neurological disorders.9

The Verdict on MSG
It is clear that there are unanswered questions about the safety of MSG, not only as a food additive, but also as a vaccine ingredient.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), MSG is a “naturally occurring” substance since its basic ingredients are found in natures.2 It is critical to realize here that “naturally occurring” does not mean that the food additive being consumed is in its natural form. It only means that the manufacturing process began with something found in nature but the question is: Does that make it safe for consumption or injection?

Although the FDA labeled MSG as “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) in 1959, since then it has acknowledged the existence of short-term reactions to MSG.2 These include numbness, headaches, fatigue, disorientation and heart palpitations that some people who have low tolerance to MSG may experience after eating foods containing MSG.2 

Similar to most vaccine ingredients that have not been tested separately for safety, the long term cumulative effects of injecting MSG into the body and how it interacts with other chemicals and ingredients in vaccines is not known. What is known is that MSG is an excitotoxin that can cause neurons to die. Until adequate testing is done, the verdict on using MSG in vaccines is unsettled.

FACT: Armed Citizens DO Stop Mass Murder Active Killers

- Caleb Lee at Prepared Gun Owners



If you listen to the “news” after every mass murder tragedy, there seems to be some type of debate as to whether an armed citizen on the scene would help.
Today, I would like to end that debate. Because there is no debate.
100% of the time when there is an armed “Good guy” on the scene of a mass murder situation, the body count is dramatically lower.
There Is No Debate: Armed Citizens Have and Will Continue To Stop Active Killers and Mass Murderers
It is really infuriating to read headlines like “Little Evidence Of Armed Civilians Stopping Shooters” or “Is It True Armed Civilians Have Never Stopped a Mass Shooting?”
Then you have snarky news reporters who often ask during debates with pro-gun guests “Can you give or think of one example where armed civilians stopped a mass killer?”
Unfortunately, the truth is not widely published but it should be.
This is my attempt to help get the truth and the facts out there.
Armed “good guys” regularly help stop mass shootings.
Before we get to the data, it’s important to understand why this is unequivocally true.
In A Mass Murder/Active Killer Situation, The FASTER The Defensive Response — The More Lives Are Saved. Period.
Way back in 1999, 34 people were shot at Columbine High School while they waited on police to arrive and stop the two active killers.
Police that day learned an important lesson.
Do NOT wait.
At Columbine, two officers exchanged fire with one of the teenage gunmen just outside the school door, then stopped — just like they were previously trained to do — to wait for a SWAT team that would make entry.
During the 45 minutes it took for the SWAT team to assemble and go in, the two killers shot 10 of the 13 people they killed that day.
That new type of threat — the active killer who doesn’t want hostages, no demands, and is just intent on getting a high body count — taught police not to wait.
After Columbine, police across the country developed specific “active-shooter” training for these types of situations.
In short, responding officers are taught to rush toward the gunfire (ignoring victims if necessary) to aggressively attack the active killer.
Because seconds count.
It had been proven over and over again that most these types of killers either give up or kill themselves when confronted with any type of resistance.
Suddenly the killer is not in control. Now he has to defend his own life which takes his mind off the killing.
For all the same reasons, immediate confrontation from a civilian on the scene is the MOST effective strategy to save lives.
PROOF: Armed Civilians Save Lives During Mass Murder Events

The chart below comes from Last Resort Firearms Training and was posted at Active Reponse Training:


It’s an excellent article which you should read yourself, but I’d like to share just a few highlights from the data here.
There are two major points to note.
Gun-Free Zones Make Law-Abiding Civilians Helpless Victims
From the article …
“-28 people were shot inside Sandy Hook Elementary School while they waited on police to arrive and stop the killing.
– 31 people were shot inside a San Bernardino, CA government building while they waited on police to arrive and stop the killing.
-34 people were shot at Columbine High School while they waited on police to arrive and stop the killing.
-43 people were shot at Fort Hood, TX while they waited on police to arrive and stop the killing.
-47 people were shot in an academic building at Virginia Tech University while they waited on police to arrive and stop the killing.
-70 people were shot inside a movie theater in Aurora, CO while they waited on police to arrive and stop the killing.
-And now, 102 people have been shot in a nightclub in Orlando, FL while they waited on police to arrive and stop the killing.
In addition to mass casualties, all of these crime scenes have one thing in common. They are all places where law prohibited law-abiding adults from carrying handguns for self-defense. This made everyone present a compulsory victim, a sitting duck, a fish in a barrel, once the killer chose that location and started his attack. It forced everyone to wait on police to arrive and stop the killing. The pattern and trend is obvious. A LOT of people can be shot in the time it takes police to arrive after a mass public shooting begins. The norm seems to be between three and eight minutes.”
100% Of The Time An Armed “Good Guy” Was Present, The Body Count Is In The Single Digits!
This is probably the most incredible fact, that you should share far and wide:
“In every single active shooter attack where a good, armed person was present when the attack began and acted aggressively to stop the killer, the body count was less than 10, single-digits. Every time. 100%. Having a good, armed person present who will act to stop the killer, whether it’s a cop, armed security guard, or armed citizen, ends the attack in the first 1 – 2 minutes. This prevents the killer from having the time needed to amass a high body count. Waiting on police to arrive and stop the killing gives the killer plenty of time to shoot a lot of people.”
Every single time. Less bodies.
There is no debate.
Swift, immediate action is needed to respond to the active killer threat and the people closest to the threat are the ones on the scene already.
If one of these people fights back, then the body counts go down. Period.

The facts need to get out there.
Armed civilians and other “good guys” often stop mass murder attempts.
Heck, even un-armed good guys often stop mass murder attempts.
Ron Borsch in his study of what he calls “Rapid Mass Murder” attempts — four or more people being killed in less than 20 minutes in a public location — says that citizens, mostly unarmed, are credited with stopping a full two-thirds of these killings.
The key to it all is TIME.
When a crazed murderer decides to go kill a lot of people, WAITING for police or someone to come save you is not the solution.
Aggressive, violent response saves lives. The faster the response, the more lives saved.
Please share this with everyone you care about.
