I'm going to present them to you here with some explanations. See Norman Rich's Hitler's War Aims, pp. 8-9. They had guns, a large fleet of ships with sailors and soldiers, but more importantly was their no sentimental value for non-Europeans. The Sauers’ tale has been largely neglected in American scholarship, even by America’s radical left.� The Sauers achieved some milestones in printing Bibles in America (first Bible printed on American-made paper and American-made typesetting), and they were printed in German.� Franklin was a notorious anti-German bigot and used his monopoly power in the printing business to try putting the Sauers out of business.� Franklin had considerable control over the paper and ink trade, as well as publishing distribution, and his attempts to wipe out the Sauers led them to manufacture their supplies and create their own distribution network.� The Sauers, just as the “patriot” presses did, wrote criticisms of the Stamp Act and other English colonial measures.� When the “patriots” began advocating armed resistance, Christopher II backed off, due to his pacifism.� He also was an advocate of humane and fair treatment of the Native Americans, their ongoing dispossession and genocide quite obvious.� Christopher II did not align with either side during the American Revolution, but his son became a British Loyalist, as did Ben Franklin’s illegitimate son William.� While some scholars today debate whether the famous kite-flying experiment ever took place, it may have been William Franklin who built and flew the famous kite in that dangerous thunderstorm, while his father hid in a nearby shelter.� If the experiment took place, William was the witness.� Father and son were both English loyalists before the 1770s.� William became New Jersey's governor and headed the Board of American Loyalists.� Father changed his stripes while the son remained loyal to the Crown.� Ben arranged for his son’s harsh imprisonment during the American Revolution and later compelled him to sign over his properties.� Father and son did not part on good terms.� While nearly disinheriting his son, Franklin’s will stated a little vindictively: “The part he acted against me in the late war, which is of public notoriety, will account for my leaving him no more of an estate he endeavoured to deprive me of.” Christopher Sauer II never advocated violent resistance, nor did he take sides, because any loyalty oath was against his religious convictions, but the “patriots” nevertheless seized and sold off his business and properties to their fellow rebels, cheaply.� They imprisoned and tortured the elderly Sauer, and he died a pauper in 1784.� Franklin app arently profited from the seizure of Christopher Sauer’s printing property. [169] � In the Sauers’ case, Franklin’s “free press” ideals did not comfortably mesh with the reality of his actions.� He acted just like a capitalist, trying to wipe out the competition, and his huge fortune may not have been amassed as honestly as his hagiographers would have people believe.� The original Constitutional Convention was a bona fide conspiracy, and the Founding Fathers far overstepped their authority.� The Pennsylvania Herald was bought out by the Founding Fathers during the Constitutional Convention, because it was reporting the facts from that illegal convention.� With the press thus bought out and silenced, the American people knew nothing about the most important issue of the day.� That censorship also foreshadowed how the American press is censored today, by capitalistic means, not direct government intervention.� The Constitutional Convention was not exactly a democratic undertaking.� In fact, the Founding Fathers generally dreaded democracy. [170] � Franklin headed the first abolitionist society in America, although he was a slave-owner and slave trader himself who partly built his fortune on running ads for recapturing runaway slaves.� His stance on the issues was far less than heroic. [171] The only non-slave-owning, non-plantation-owning president of the first five was John Adams, who joined his Founding Father brethren in bestowing subhuman appellations upon the natives.� In 1775, he called them “blood Hounds” when they fought alongside the French a decade earlier, but the next year, while calling them “Savages with their cruel, bloody dispositions,” Adams, when considering the early British military successes, thought that the revolutionaries “need not be so delicate as to refuse the assistance of Indians.” [172] � By happenstance, Morton’s Merry Mount was on the Adams’ family lands, and John sought long and hard for Morton’s New English Canaan, and after half a century of searching (because the Puritans’ suppression efforts were so effective), his son John Quincy finally found a copy of it in Europe.� Adams concurred with his Puritan forefathers about the depraved nature of Morton and the degenerate spectacle of Morton and the natives dancing and playing together.� With Morton and the natives long gone, his book was more of a curiosity than a threat, and Adams even found pleasure in Morton’s work and vision, from a safe two centuries later.

For the next century, this is pretty much how things operated, and both Spanish and Portuguese denied that other European powers had the right to have ships in "their" waters.
