FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE — A couple of years ago I wrote an article about the scam foisted on Americans by political “leaders” who claimed that all that the United States needs to do to end illegal immigration, is to secure the border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico.
In that article, “The ‘Secure Our Border First Act’ Deception: Why it’s no solution to the immigration crisis” I noted that in the Longfellow poem, “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” that Paul Revere’s friend had it relatively easy to warn Paul Revere as to how the British would be coming. In fact, with just three lanterns, Paul would be alerted if the British were coming by land or by sea.
Here is the paragraph from that poem that addresses the possibilities:
- He said to his friend, — “If the British march
By land or sea from the town to-night,
Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry-arch
Of the North-Church-tower, as a signal-light, —
One if by land, and two if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to ride and spread the alarm
Through every Middlesex village and farm,
For the country-folk to be up and to arm.”
In that article I listed ten ways for aliens to enter the United States either legally or illegally. Indeed, if we were to seek to hang enough lanterns in a church to warn of all of the possibilities the local hardware store would likely not have enough lanterns to covers all of those possibilities.
Furthermore, lighting all of those lanterns simultaneously would likely cause the Old North Church to catch on fire.
