Robert Rogers

From Patriot Post:

"Robert Rogers and his Rangers, however, understood that defeating one's enemy,
particularly in unconventional asymmetric warfare v. conventional or symmetric
warfare, requires unconventional methods.

Rogers was born the son of Scots-Irish immigrants to the Massachusetts Bay
Colony in 1731, and grew up in New Hampshire. He learned his skills of stealth,
perseverance, tenacity and adaptability in the forests and mountain frontiers of
New England, where terror reigned upon settlers in the form of attacks by
barbaric native peoples.

Rogers' unconventional ambush and survival tactics were adapted from these
dangerous adversaries. His skills led to a leadership position among a group of
men of similar ability and temperament that he chose to combat the French and
Indians on the frontier from 1754 to 1763.
K
ing George II's Crown regiments could not contend with unconventional warfare
in the wilderness, but Rogers' Rangers could. So effective were the Rangers that
they became the Crown's primary scouting unit by 1755.

In a new biography on Rogers, "War on the Run" by John Ross, the author details
how effective Rogers' Rangers were with their unconventional tactics, and their
ability to fight fire with fire.

Ross notes that Rogers understood psychological warfare was as important as
firepower or numerical superiority in order to defeat an enemy. For example,
Rogers once scalped a French captive in plain view of his fort's French
garrison. The French surrendered shortly thereafter.

Native tribes aligned with the French against the British also came to fear
Rogers' Rangers, who had not only adapted many of their tactics, but had
perfected them.

A decade after the end of the French and Indian war, men from the ranks of the
Rangers were among the militiamen at the Battle of Concord Bridge."

Anchor Babies and Fourteenth Amendment

From Mark Alexander's Patriot Post:

Patriot reader and Harding University political science professor Cheri Pierson
Yecke wrote in to clear up the matter. She noted that birthright citizenship
"began with the Supreme Court decision of United States v. Wong Kim Ark (1898).
SCOTUS shamefully ignored congressional intent and gave the following opinion:
'A child born in the United States, of parents of Chinese descent, who, at the
time of his birth, are subjects of the Emperor of China, but have a permanent
domicile and residence in the United States, and are there carrying on business,
and are not employed in any diplomatic or official capacity under the Emperor of
China, becomes at the time of his birth a citizen of the United States, by
virtue of the first clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution: "All
persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein
they reside."'"

Dr. Yecke added, "As can be seen in the Senate debate on the 14th Amendment
(39th Congress, First Session), a provision for 'anchor babies' was never the
intent of Congress." Sen. Jacob Howard (R-MI) argued for adding the phrase
"subject to the jurisdiction thereof" to the Amendment, saying, "This
[Amendment] will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who
are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors, or foreign
ministers..."
