  • Mystery of the secret Confederate submarine Hunley is SOLVED (TR)

    The first submarine to down an enemy ship was sunk itself after its crew failed to release an emergency weight to help it resurface. Crew aboard the Confederate vessel HL Hunley did not disconnect the 1,000lb keel blocks to help it rapidly resurface, resulting in the sub being trapped underwater and the men dying from lack of oxygen. Scientists who removed the corrosion, silt and shells from the boat found the levers all locked in their regular position, solving a mystery dating back to 1864. The blocks would typically keep the sub upright, but also could be released with three...

    Confederate General Jubal Early, leading about 10,000 men of the Second Corp, Army of Northern Virginia attacks Fort Stevens in Washington DC. The Union forces around in and around the fort are about equal to Early's force. As the attack develops, additional reinforcements from two Union Corps arrive on scene and stall Early's assault. The next day,skirmishing continues, but Early has decided any further attacks will only result in high casualties with little chance of success. He begins withdrawing his forces back into Virginia.

  • How Probable Is A Second Civil War?

    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was relentlessly mocked this week for suggesting that the left-wing was going to start a second civil war on the 4th of July. The ridicule was fair as Jones’ bold claim was likely just a publicity stunt. However, I believe the chances of a second civil war occurring in the near future are a lot greater than some may realize. Just search “list of civil wars” on Wikipedia. This will give you an idea of how common it is for a country to go to war with itself. History reveals that there has almost never been...

    Ever since Maxine Waters encouraged her supporters to publicly harass Trump supporters, liberals have denounced civility and things just keep getting worse. Now, Washington Post columnist and MSNBC Contributor Jennifer Rubin announced that if Trump gets his way with the supreme court, it is time for civil war. “The people who brought Donald Trump and delivered him to the White House want this [the overturn of Roe], and I think they will not be disappointed. So then the question is, if they’re not able to withstand this onslaught, not able to hold back a justice that would reverse Roe, what...
  • Abraham Lincoln's Independence Day Address of 1863

    Abraham Lincoln's Independence Day Address of July 7, 1863 Researched by James R. Heintze. All rights reserved. Abraham Lincoln's Independence Day address of 1863 in Washington is significant in that it was presented three days after the city had celebrated the holiday and represented one of only a few Fourth of July addresses given in Washington during the 19th century that were reprinted in newspapers outside the city. Perhaps not referred to as often as his other speeches, Lincoln's July 7 address is nonetheless important. Presented, apparently spontaneously, as a response to hundreds of persons who had gathered in front...

    Gun sales have remained strong during the Trump era. Through the end of May, 2018 is trending to be the second highest year on record. The NICS checks through May of 2018 are 97% of those of 2016. Political writers and gun industry writers, and those who are both, have speculated that politics have been the major driver of guns sales for the last decade. The latest Rassmussen poll shows evidence of a deeper reason people would fear to be disarmed. From rasmussenreports.com: Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters say it’s likely that the United States will experience...

    Kevin McCullough from TownHall.com has penned one of the most insightful summaries of the total disregard for civil society now viciously pursued by the deranged, lunatic Left. In essence, McCullough accurately describes the Left’s painful descent into a lunatic mob of screamers and hate-mongers, and why they have abandoned any pretext of civility in their quest to utterly silence, destroy and even murder conservatives across America. As you read this, below, keep in mind that the Left has turned America into a battlefield — complete with threats to firebomb conservative targets in coordinated acts of domestic terrorism — and they...

    It’s the current year, and the unhinged left still cannot face the hard reality of a Donald Trump successful presidency. I didn’t mean it to rhyme, but that’s how it got out, sorry. Truth be told, the left seems to be crazier than ever nowadays, and Michael Moore is living fat proof of this. According to Jabba the Hutt reincarnated, the wimpy and weak Democrats (his words, not mine) would have to “rise up”, and, check this out: “put their bodies on the line” to mitigate the Trump disaster. If that doesn’t mean civil war, I don’t know what does....

    “Thirty-one percent of American likely voters believe another civil war is likely in the next five years, while eleven percent believe it is very likely, according to a Rasmussen poll. Over half of reponsdents said they are concerned that political violence is likely from opponents of President Donald Trump's policies. The poll was conducted by Rasmussen Reports, a right-leaning public polling group. The poll was conducted over the telephone and online on 1000 Likely Voters, with a three-percent margin of error. The survey was conducted between June 21 and June 24, 2018.”

    Most voters fear that political violence is coming from opponents of the president’s policies, just as they did in the second year of Barack Obama’s presidency, and nearly one-in-three think a civil war is next. Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters say it’s likely that the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years, with 11% who say it’s Very Likely. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% consider a second civil war unlikely, but that includes only 29% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see...
