The Naval War of 1812: TR’s Forgotten Masterpiece

His analysis of the Navy’s shortcomings bore fruit nearly a century later.

It has been 99 years since Theodore Roosevelt’s death, yet he still captures Americans’ imaginations as much as any public figure from that era. What is often lost in our memory of Roosevelt is that he was not only a cowboy, a soldier, and a statesman, but also an acclaimed historian. Indeed, his historical scholarship (some of which remains the standard work in its field) is central to his legacy as a statesman.

Roosevelt was only 23 in 1882, when he published his first work of history, The Naval War of 1812. Although the book was well received in its time (every ship in the Navy was required to keep at least one copy on board), it is far more valuable today as a manifesto for American naval power and a clarion call for the modernization of what Roosevelt saw as a woefully ill-equipped fleet.

Roosevelt credits the young United States Navy with achieving several important victories against the British at sea, but this happened despite and not because of the actions of the American politicians who set military policy in the years before the war. During the Quasi-War fought between the United States and France in the late 1790s, President John Adams had ordered the construction of six frigates and created the Department of the Navy to oversee their construction. However, under the succeeding administrations of Jefferson and Madison, those ships fell into disrepair, and naval construction lost the importance it had once had in Washington. One can read the particular indignation Roosevelt has for Jefferson and Madison in the opening chapters of The Naval War of 1812, as he castigates their strategy for prioritizing small gunboats designed for coastal defense over larger frigates, and how this left the United States vulnerable to the much larger and more dangerous Royal Navy. While Roosevelt admires the quality of America’s sailors a great deal, he repeats vigorously that they were dealt a bad hand by inattentive politicians.   MORE

Bob Barney:  You known the DEEP STATE is now in control of the Trump White House--ANOTHER broken promise


President Trump is allowing the CIA and FBI to conceal what we can only assume is evidence of their involvement in JFK’s assassination for another 3-1/2 years.

From the Dallas Morning News:

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump issued an order Thursday keeping some of the most sensitive records from the Kennedy assassination files sealed for another 3-1/2 years, as the National Archives released a final batch under a law meant to force most of the records into the light by last fall.

In 1992, Congress set a 25-year deadline for releasing remaining documents stemming from John F. Kennedy’s murder in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.

When the deadline arrived — Oct. 26 last year — Trump gave federal agencies a six-month extension to plead the case for keeping selected records sealed, if they could assert a vital national security interest. The FBI and CIA in particular had pressed for more time.

Some 15,884 records that have now been partially released, some with heavy redactions, will be subject to yet more review over the next three years under Trump’s order.


'Golden State Killer' Captured after more than 40 years

Finally after more than 40 years

Neighbors of suspected Golden State Killer speak of shock

Neighbors of the suspected Golden State Killer say he once threatened to 'deliver a load of death' after he became angry over a barking dog - as those who lived near him painted a picture of a retiree who was 'creepy and odd'. Former police officer Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested at his home in Citrus Heights, California on Tuesday night after DNA linked him to crimes attributed to the Golden State Killer from the 1970s and 80s. The Golden State Killer, also known as the East Area Rapist, is suspected of at least 12 murders and 50 rapes across parts of the state 40 years ago. Residents of the quiet, middle-class street where DeAngelo had been living for years said even though their neighbor was known for his temper tantrums, they were shocked to learn he was suspected of being a serial killer. They said DeAngelo - a Vietnam War veteran, former police officer and grandfather - would mostly keep to himself but would often launch into

'I'm being attacked': Hannity responds to media blitz over his properties

Fox News host Sean Hannity is responding to news reports that he has links to shell companies that have spent $90 million purchasing houses across the U.S., and he says he’s under “attack” for investing in struggling communities.

As WND reported, Hannity was named as a client of President Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, last week. Hannity said his legal discussions with Cohen were focused on the issue of real estate.

“I’ve said many time on my radio show: I hate the stock market,” Hannity said on television. “Michael knows real estate.”

On Sunday, the London Guardian reported that it had reviewed thousands of pages of public records concerning Hannity’s investments.

“The records link Hannity to a group of shell companies that spent at least $90m on more than 870 homes in seven states over the past decade,” the Guardian reported. “The properties range from luxurious mansions to rentals for low-income families. Hannity is the hidden owner behind some of the shell companies and his attorney did not dispute that he owns all of them.

“Dozens of the properties were bought at a discount in 2013, after banks foreclosed on their previous owners for defaulting on mortgages. Before and after then, Hannity sharply criticized Barack Obama for the U.S. foreclosure rate.”

CDC unpublished study: Over 2 million defensive gun uses every year

English: Logo of the Centers for Disease Contr...(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

SHOCKING COVERUP!  American need to understand that the liberal are not just attacking the second amendment, but in fact they want to see all of the Bill of Rights done away with... DON'T BE FOOLED!

Every year, Americans use guns to defend themselves more than 2 million times, according to an unpublished study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that focused on data gathered in 1996, 1997 and 1998.

The findings show that use of guns for self-defense happens more frequently than criminal use of firearms.

During his Monday broadcast, talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh said “it’s typical” that the CDC didn’t go public with the eye-opening findings.

“The CDC figures this does not further the leftist agenda,” Limbaugh said, “so they keep it secret, but it has been uncovered.”

Since the 1990s, Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck and partner Marc Gertz have claimed as many as 2.2 million Americans use firearms to defend themselves every year. While critics have claimed Kleck’s estimates were too high, he has frequently stated that they provide no scientific evidence to counter his findings.

Now it’s revealed that the unpublished CDC study in the 1990s found 2.46 million defensive gun uses, or DGUs, per year.

Fake news, fake media, fake history, fake truth

English: A set of online ads featuring fake ne...English: A set of online ads featuring fake news scams (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Much, if not most, of what America’s “mainstream media” report today as news is either misleading or flat-out false. Yet, ironically, our nation’s elite journalists are up in arms over an apparently new threat they call “fake news.”

And what is “fake news”? That turns out to be a more profound and revealing question than you might think.

A journalist’s job, I have long said, is to be a professional truth-teller, but that raises the ultimate question: As Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?”

Traditionally minded Americans, conservatives, evangelical Christians and countless others see truth one way. But those on “the left” – code for a worldview of churning rebellion against the Judeo-Christian, capitalist, Constitution-honoring ways of previous generations of Americans – have their own very different notions of truth.

Of course, Americans have the cherished constitutional right to believe whatever “truth” they want, however absurd it might be. But there is a big price to pay, both as individuals and as a nation, for embracing lies as truth.

The press’ role...................


James Clapper has been avoiding charges from when he lied to Congress, while crooked Hillary will be awarded for her “impact” on society. The corruption within the deep state continues and these people need to get locked up for their corruption!



A senior correspondent for German state media broadcast ZDF heutestunned his European audience during a report from on the ground in Syria when he gave a straightforward and honest account of his findings while investigating what happened in Douma. The veteran reporter, Uli Gack, interviewed multiple eyewitnesses of the April 7 alleged chemical attack and concluded of the testimonials, “the Douma chemical attack is most likely staged, a great many people here seem very convinced.”

It appears that all local Syrians encountered by the German public broadcast reporter were immediately dismissive of the widespread allegation that the Syrian government gassed civilians, which the US, UK, France, and Israel used a pretext for launching missile strikes on Damascus.

ZDF heute: The world continues to puzzle over whether the banned chemical weapons were used in Douma. ZDF correspondent Uli Gack is in Syria for us: “you were in a large refugee camp today and talked to a lot of people – what did you hear about the attack there?” Gack responded, “the Douma chemical attack is most likely staged, a great many people here seem very convinced.”

Testosterone could be good for more than men's sexual health and strong muscles and bones. 

A new study has found those with low levels of the hormone could be more likely to suffer from chronic illness.

Even the under-40s are at higher risk of obesity-related conditions like diabetes and heart disease thanks to modern sedentary lifestyles, and low testosterone means they are more likely to have more than one at once, according to the research.   

One researcher warned that all men should be worried about falling testosterone levels - which could cause 'a silent decline in overall health' - even if their level of the hormone is not low enough to have been diagnosed by a doctor.

Hans Asperger was a Nazi Child Killer!

Famed autism doctor Hans Asperger assisted in Nazi euthanasia

Herwig Czech, a historian of medicine at the Medical University of Vienna, made the discovery after looking at Asperger's Nazi-era publications along with documents from Austrian archives. The study points to instances where Asperger referred profoundly disabled children to the Am Spiegelgrund clinic, which participated in the Third Reich's child euthanasia program. The program served the Nazi goal of eugenically engineering a genetically ‘pure’ society through ‘racial hygiene’ and the elimination of lives deemed a ‘burden’ and ‘not worthy of life’.

Israel (really 'Judah') marks 70 years as a nation as new and old challenges lurk


Jerusalem (AFP) - Israel celebrated 70 years since the country's foundation on Wednesday, lauding its improbable economic success and military prowess, but facing a range of political and security challenges.

The anniversary of the proclamation of the state of Israel by founding father David Ben-Gurion began at sundown on Wednesday under the Hebrew calendar, but falls on May 14 according to the Western calendar.

At the traditional Jerusalem torch-lighting ceremony kicking off what Israelis call Independence Day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed what he called "real seeds of peace" he said were beginning to sprout among some of Israel's Arab neighbours.  MORE

Trump's Move For North Korean Peace

Trump confirms CIA director Mike Pompeo traveled to North Korea

President Trump (pictured at Mar A Lago having dinner with Melania and the Japanese Prime Minister and his wife) says the United States has engaged in 'extremely high level' talks with North Korea and a summit with the country's reclusive dictator Kim Jong-un (bottom right) is still on track to take place in the next few weeks. Unless negotiations go offer the rails, Trump said the meeting will take place in late May or early June in one of five locations he revealed to be under consideration. 'We have had direct talks at very high levels, extremely high levels, with North Korea. I really believe there’s a lot of good will,' the U.S. president said. 'We’ll see what happens, as I always say. Because ultimately it’s the end result that counts.' Trump commented on the scheduled talks with North Korea today as he hosted the Japanese prime minister at Mar-a-Lago for a two-day summit. Trump said Japan and the U.S. are 'locked and we are very unified' when it comes to North Korea. Meanwhile it has emerged Mike Pompeo (bottom left), secretly traveled to North Korea for secret talks with Kim over Easter, according to The Washington Post.

ex-Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones tells about what really happens in the entertainment industry

Kaya Jones, the Defiant ex-Pussycat Doll who called the pop group a 'prostitution ring,' has detailed the sex abuse she said she went through while she was still a member of the band.   

Jones, who left the Dolls after three years in 2005, told in an exclusive interview she and other members of the scantily clad all-girl group were regularly abused by music industry executives.

It wasn't sex for money per se, but sexual favors were expected of the Dolls. 

And she says she is convinced more members of the band and its sister acts will come forward to back her explosive claims.

'As just one example, a record executive asked me to get into his car and I accepted. We were in Las Vegas and we were all racing to get to the airport to take us back to LA after the show,' Jones said..

'It was just a 10-minute ride. I remember getting in the back seat of the limo with him and within seconds he jumped on me. I literally had to fight him off all the way to the airport.'

Jones (circled) is pictured with Nicola Scherzinger and the rest of the Pussycat Dolls at an MTV Asia awards ceremony in 2004

Washington and the US media seem to have no doubts about the Syrian government’s complicity in the Douma incident despite the fact that those who want America to stay in Syria have far more solid motives, Ron Paul told RT.

The assertion by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that Washington is “confident” that Syrian President Bashar Assad is culpable for the alleged chemical attack on the Damascus suburb of Douma does not stand up to scrutiny, Ron Paul, former congressman and founder of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, told RT.

“I don’t know what they are confident about. They are confident in telling lies and hope people will believe it,” he said.

Mainstream American media don’t seem to need facts to back the White House’s claims, either. “Most of the time when a crime is committed in this country, the stations, when they are not sure, they carefully say: ‘this is allegedly’ – but they never do this under these circumstances and they have zero bits of information,” Paul pointed out.

While there are few questions in the US media over who is to blame for the alleged incident, the former congressman argues that Assad is the last person to suspect. “I think that least likely it would be Assad,”he said, noting that the same goes for Moscow.

“I cannot see any reason why Assad would do this, there’s no reason for Russians to have done that.” Unlike Russia and Syria, the forces who want to see the US staying in Syria have a clear motive, Paul said.


Could California be split into six states?

Article below From 2016 - but the issue is heating up again!

The Plain Truth has called for this for ten years. We need to have 75-100 states. This would weaken the big cities control over the Senate, giving back that body of Congress to the majority of Americans!

A multi-millionaire who believes California should be separated into six separate states says he has gathered enough signatures to place it on the ballot in two years.

Venture capitalist Tim Draper, 55, says the Golden State is too large to govern efficiently, and that people living there would be better served by a more localised government.

The technology investor has proposed splitting the state into six: San Diego and Orange County would become South California, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara would make up West California, the Sacramento area would be known as North California, and Bakersfield, Fresno and Stockton would make up Central California.

Fasting may preserve brain health: The Bible commands all of us to fast at least once a year

Fasting may preserve brain health, new research suggests.

A low-fat diet that includes 40 per cent fewer calories then recommended intakes reduces inflammation in mice's brain cells, a study found today.

Such eating plans also maintain the function of brain tissue, the research adds.

Lead author Dr Bart Eggen from the University Medical Center Groningen in The Netherlands, said: 'Ageing-induced inflammatory activation of microglia could only be prevented when mice were fed a low-fat diet in combination with limited calorific intake. 

'A low-fat diet per se was not sufficient to prevent these changes.'

Microglia is a type of cell in the brain that helps to maintain the proper function of the organ's tissue.

Results further suggest cutting calories is more effective at maintaining brain health than exercise.

Brain-cell inflammation has been linked to conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Rasmussen's encephalitis, which can cause seizures and eventual dementia.

2011 TPT Headline---The U.S. Can Become ‘the Saudi Arabia of Oil’ by 2020, Entrepreneur Says

THIS WAS THE PLAIN TRUTH's 2011 Headline- Once again, we were ahead of our time as by 2018 The USA is the largest producer of oil again!

oil filed pumper jobs

Harold Hamm is more than a little disappointed in President Obama.

He discovered the Bakken oil fields of Montana and North Dakota that have pushed the U.S. into third place among world oil producers and could yield, Hamm says, 24 billion barrels:

If he’s right, that’ll double America’s proven oil reserves. “Bakken is almost twice as big as the oil reserve in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska,” he continues. According to Department of Energy data, North Dakota is on pace to surpass California in oil production in the next few years. Mr. Hamm explains over lunch in Washington, D.C., that the more his company drills, the more oil it finds. Continental Resources has seen its “proved reserves” of oil and natural gas (mostly in North Dakota) skyrocket to 421 million barrels this summer from 118 million barrels in 2006.

“We expect our reserves and production to triple over the next five years.” And for those who think this oil find is only making Mr. Hamm rich, he notes that today in America “there are 10 million royalty owners across the country” who receive payments for the oil drilled on their land. “The wealth is being widely shared.”

Swamp Creatures Are TERRIFIED Of What Ben Carson Is Doing To Clean Up HUD

image from

It’s been a year since Dr. Ben Carson was confirmed as Secretary for Housing and Urban Development. For most of its existence HUD is the cabinet-level agency probably best known for management challenges and the occasional corruption scandal involving local government officials abusing funds.

Liberals love HUD, because it hands out billions of dollars in the name of social justice. Not coincidentally, the money is often hard to account for, which is why it often ends up in the pocket of corrupt officials.

HUD has a long history of mismanagement and neglect. The agency’s financial statements are such a mess that the agency’s own Inspector General couldn’t complete an internal audit of the agency’s books. In fact, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report in 2016, based on numerous HUD IG and GAO audits over a 15-year period, in which it reported that the agency failed to implement multiple financial accountability recommendations. Additionally, the agency seemingly ignored recommendations to dedicate staff and implement and enforce policies to prevent waste, fraud, and abuse.  MORE

The steadily disappearing American car

Travelers at a gas station in Arizona, 1981.

After a century of ferrying millions of daily commuters and taking countless family road trips, simple passenger cars are disappearing from American life, and they may not come back.

Detroit's Big Three automakers — Chrysler, Ford and General Motors — pioneered the mass production of the car, but in just four years, all three may be known to Americans simply as truck and SUV makers, with only a stray sedan for sale.

The automotive industry in America is making what many observers think is an irrevocable shift toward pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles and crossovers. While carmakers are producing sedans and sports cars that are safer, faster and more comfortable than ever, customers continue to flock to taller vehicles with features cars simply cannot offer.   MORE

He is Not Here Jesus Body was Gone!

On the 7th Day of April (TODAY), at sunrise, then on a Sunday morning, Mary came to the tomb...  It was the empty... Here are 2 stories from the Seventh Day Adventist Church (not affiliated with The Plain Truth).

He is Not Here

It was early Sunday morning and the Sabbath had passed. Some of His devoted disciples, including Mary Magdalene from whom He had cast out seven devils, came to His tomb to anoint His body. To their bewilderment, He was nowhere to be found. They discussed among themselves who would have moved the massive stone that blocked the entrance to where He was buried. As they pondered their dilemma, an angel appeared and offered the most pleasant and comforting words their ears could have heard: "He is risen; He is not here" (Mark 16:6). How excited they were, not only to hear those words of relief; but to go and tell the others, as was directed by the angel.

Those words, He is Risen, are enduring beyond His disciples broadest imaginations. They echo down through the ages along the corridors of salvation history. Calvary, the story of Jesus the Only Messiah, has forever changed the course of human history. Unlike any other in the annals of the human family, Jesus' Passion, as it is called, has transformed more hearts, changed unnumbered societies and has impacted the full spectrum of the human family like none other has. The reverberations of those words uttered by the angel continue to be felt today, almost 2000 years later. But, how many understand their  true meaning? Read more.

...And Coming Again, Soon

Calvary is not the end of the story. In fact, the story never ends. For the Messiah Himself has offered even more comforting words and has assuredly promised, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:1-3). The Apostle Paul describes that event thus, "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13). John the Revelator expounds on the Savior's promise, "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away (Revelation 21:4).

It has been referred to as the faithful's greatest hope. From the prophets and patriarchs of old, to the early church, to the protestant reformers, to believers today; the visible, literal and glorious appearing of Jesus Christ back to planet earth continues to be their most cherished expectation. Here's why.

This nite Almost 2,000 Years Ago

By Bob Barney

image from s15-us2.startpage.comIt was a Saturday night in AD 30, when after three days and three nights, something supernatural occurred.  The dead body of the man named Jesus (the Christ-or the messiah) who was horribly beaten and killed to pay the price for our sins, quickened back to life.  It was dark, and the guards that were placed outside the tomb were horrified of what they saw.  They reported back to the priests, who then met with the elders and made a plan.  They knew this was bad news and it meant trouble. So, they decided to pay the soldiers a large amount of money and said to them, “Tell the people that Jesus’ followers came during the night and stole the body while you were asleep. If the governor hears about this, we will satisfy him and save you from trouble.” So the soldiers kept the money and did as they were told.  The Bible also tells us this: "And that story is still spread among the people even today."

Jesus had told his followers that the sign that he would die, and be raised from the dead was this. "As Jonah was in the belly of the great fish for three days and nights, so also, I, the son of man will be in the heart of the earth for the same three days and three nights."  Jesus died on a Wednesday afternoon on April the third, 30 AD.   Thursday afternoon was after the 1st day,  Friday, the second and Saturday the third, when He lived again!

We do not know from scripture the time that Jesus rose from the dead. The idea that it had to be exactly 72 hours is ridiculous.  It would have been light at 3PM, and the guards story would never have been believed.  We do know from scripture that he rose BEFORE the first day of the week, Sunday which started at sunrise.  So sometimes Saturday night, after it was dark, and the guards' "sleeping story" could be believed, Jesus rose from the dead.

This moment in history, that we remember here tonight, IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TIME IN ALL HISTORY of mankind.  It is the most important time in your lives as well. For on this day, our God died for our sins, and we have been forgiven of anything that we have ever done, if we just ask for it!  Your destiny, which is eternal DEATH has now been changed. Since Jesus was the first BORN AGAIN human being in all existence, HE made it possible for you to be BORN AGAIN after you die.  You see, being born again is not some religious experience, it is the act of being resurrected from the dead and becoming a spirit! 

From: "What do you mean to be Born Again: "

image from s17-us2.startpage.comThe biblical illustration of being "born again" is analogous to the physical birth process. The spiritual regeneration that occurs at baptism is compared to begettal by one's father. Following begettal, we must grow and develop as Christians just as a fetus must grow and develop inside the mother before it is ready to be born. The Bible compares the actual birth to the resurrection. This is made clear in John 3:6 when Jesus told Nicodemus: "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." Paul explained in 1 Corinthians 15:50–53 that, while flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, we will be changed into immortal spirit at the resurrection.

Just as the wind possesses great power yet is invisible, so also will those be who have actually been born of the Spirit(John 3:8). In this life we have been like Adam—having a physical, mortal body. After the resurrection from the dead, we will have a glorified spirit body—just like Jesus Christ following His resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:43–49Revelation 1:13–15). Our "vile body" will be changed to be like His "glorious body" (Philippians 3:21). Jesus Christ no longer grows tired or hungry. He is no longer subject to pain or death. Rather, He emerged from the grave never to die again! Jesus was restored to the glory that He shared with the Father before the world was, and now sits at the Father's right hand as our Intercessor and soon-coming King (John 17:4Hebrews 4:14–16).

In Colossians 1:18 and Revelation 1:5, Jesus Christ is called the "firstborn from the dead." In Romans 8:29, He is termed the "firstborn among many brethren." This clearly implies that we will also be "born from the dead"! The Greek term translated "firstborn" is prototokos. Protos is a Greek word meaning "first in order and importance." This meaning is demonstrated by its use as a prefix in English words such as "prototype."

While the Bible uses many analogies to characterize true Christians—such as new-born babes in 1 Peter 2:2, adolescent children in Hebrews 12:6–7, living stones to be constructed into a spiritual temple in 1 Peter 2:5 or parts of the human body in 1 Corinthians 12:12—the new birth nevertheless remains the most powerful and completedescription of what is literally involved in our entrance into the Kingdom of God. It explains what salvation is really all about—becoming literal sons of God (Hebrews 2:10).

Right now, true Christians are heirs, but not yet inheritors. Christ makes it plain that it is only at the resurrection, "When the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him..." that He will say to the resurrected saints, "Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom" (Matthew 25:3134). Jesus Christ clearly revealed to His disciples in Matthew 24:13 that only those who endure and persevere to the very end will be saved. God has a great ultimate purpose. He is reproducing Himself in us! We can be in God's Family as fully born children—younger brothers of Jesus Christ who was the firstborn of many brethren (Romans 8:29)."  SOURCE

So you see, Jesus resurrection is the most important thing to ever happen in your life. Most ironically don't have a clue about tonight's meaning, and their destiny.  Hopefully reading this, you do now.
