Today, most people name "Somers" living in Somers Point, NJ never heard of him. This is because the story of Richard Somers teaches three basic truths that today's elites don't want Americans to know about.
- Radical Islam's War Against America Began In 1785: Americans on ships near North Africa were first attacked, killed, and robbed by followers of The Prophet in 1784.* This was less than a year after the British Empire recognized our independence and no longer protected Americans overseas. America had disbanded our navy and most of our army after the war because we wanted to be at peace with the world-and have very low taxes. Americans had done nothing to provoke or harm anyone in the Muslim kingdoms of North Africa in any way. We were attacked because we were "non-believers" who were could not to defend ourselves. For the next 15 years, the United States tried to protect Americans by negotiating, and paying tribute (bribes) to Muslim leaders who promised not to attack us. However, the attacks did not stop until America built a new navy in 1798 and decisively defeated the four biggest "Barbary" kingdoms in North Africa. Richard Somers, of Somers Point, was one of the first to join our new navy. He was killed on September 4, 1804, during a daring attempt to win an early victory.
