    Strong rhetoric and violence on both sides of the political spectrum are reaching a fever pitchIs the United States on the brink of a new civil war? According to Newsweek magazine’s polling, a third of all Americans think such a conflict could break out within the next five years, with 10% thinking it “very likely to happen.” Plenty of experts agree. Back in March, State Department official Keith Mines told Foreign Policy magazine: “It is like 1859, everyone is mad about something and everyone has a gun.” He rated the odds of a second American Civil War breaking out within...

    You may recall that months ago, I warned of a particular scenario that would lead to an eruption of mass violence on the Left, escalating to a civil war. That scenario involved two triggers: 1) Kavanaugh being confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, and 2) The GOP holding the House in the mid-term elections. As we all now know, the GOP lost the House, handing Dems enough of a split victory to avoid them taking to the streets in an eruption of violence. Thus, the worst case civil war scenario has been avoided… for now. But make no mistake: Democrats...

    President Trump used his executive powers to designate Camp Nelson as a national monument, establishing a 380-acre site in Kentucky to honor African Americans’ role as soldiers during the Civil War. Camp Nelson is the first national monument designation under President Trump. Established as a Union supply depot and hospital during the Civil War, Camp Nelson became a recruitment and training center for African American soldiers and a refugee camp for their wives and children. Thousands of slaves risked their lives escaping to this site with the hope of securing their freedom and, ultimately, controlling their futures by aiding in...

    (snip) --- Part and parcel of the key role of illegal immigration is the general “lawlessness” in the nation embodied in cities and states thumbing their noses at the federal government with such things as “sanctuary cities.” The unwillingness or inability of Donald Trump’s administration so far to deal with this has contributed to the general climate of violence—not his “rhetoric.” Rather, there still seems a sense that lawbreakers at the highest level on down to the city council can get away with ignoring the law. Lincoln spoke reverently about the law. In doing so, he was indirectly addressing the...

    As a work of presidential prose, James Buchanan’s inaugural address on March 4, 1857, is widely considered one of the most forgettable ever given by an American leader. As The New York Times put it dryly at the time: “Little if any impression has been made by the inaugural.” Still, it would not take long for Buchanan’s unimpressive inauguration to become one of the most significant in history. For one thing, it was the first to be photographed. It was also the first inaugural given after the creation of the Republican Party, the last before secession and ultimately the last...

    NBC Issues Correction Two Days After Falsely Claiming Trump Called Gen. Robert E. Lee ‘Incredible’ On Friday, NBC News reported, and tweeted, that President Donald Trump praised Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee as “incredible”. But on Sunday, NBC had to correct that tweet since, as it turns out, Trump was actually praising Union General (and future U.S. President) Ulysses S. Grant in the clip. “An earlier tweet misidentified the general President Trump described as ‘incredible’ at a rally in Ohio,” they tweeted. “It was Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, not Gen. Robert E. Lee.” That’s a pretty big difference. That was...

    “So Robert E. Lee was a great general,” Trump told the audience. “And Abraham Lincoln developed a phobia.” “He couldn’t beat Robert E. Lee,” he explained. “He was going crazy.” “I don’t know if you know this story,” he continued. “But Robert E. Lee was winning battle after battle after battle.” “And one day it was looking really bad and Lincoln just said you hardly knew his name,” he said, “and they said don’t take him he’s got a drinking people.” “And Lincoln said I don’t care what problem he has, you guys aren’t winning,” Trump continued. “And his name...

    President Trump praised Confederate Geader Robert E. Lee as "a great general" on Friday during a campaign rally in Lebanon, Ohio. "So Robert E. Lee was a great general. And Abraham Lincoln developed a phobia. He couldn’t beat Robert E. Lee," Trump said before launching into a monologue about Lee, Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. "He was going crazy. I don’t know if you know this story. But Robert E. Lee was winning battle after battle after battle. And Abraham Lincoln came home, he said, 'I can’t beat Robert E. Lee,'" Trump said. "And he had all of his generals,...

    A pair of Pennsylvania treasure hunters and their lawyer are accusing the FBI of playing games and acting suspiciously about a dig at a rural site believed to contain a massive stash of Civil War-era gold -- which may be worth up to $250 million. The accusations from Dennis and Kem Parada, and their attorney, Bill Cluck, came months after the bureau said it dug a hole in Dents Run and found nothing. The father-and-son duo felt convinced that area of state-owned wilderness northeast of Pittsburgh holds a hidden stash of gold and the pair claim the FBI went back...

    I see a Second Civil War breaking out in America. Now, I realize we’ve heard this before. And when I first uncovered this research, I almost dismissed it as sensationalist clickbait. But I’m glad I didn’t. This Civil War won’t be a shooting war. We’re not going to have a war between the North and the South on the battlefields of Fort Sumter or Gettysburg. It’ll be an economic Civil War… One in which states could exert their financial independence. And for the first time, we have the technology to make this possible. Before I get to the technology, I...

    Communist agitators took to Twitter this week to brainstorm strategies for a violent armed insurrection against their perceived enemies. “Dr. Bones," the co-host of the far-left podcast The Guillotine, started the conversation going with his 5,000-plus Twitter followers. Bones (@Ole_Bonsey on Twitter) asked: “Hey quick little question for military minded lefties: should leftists train/organize in a 'insurgent' focus where they blend into a civilian population for potential attacks or a more 'militia' structure focused on holding/maintaining turf?” Bones went on to suggest that fellow travelers organize "hidden cells" and focus on ambushes and assassinations to bleed "right-leaning forces" dry. He...
