  • This Day in History: The Gettysburg Address

    On this day in 1863, Abraham Lincoln delivers his famous Gettysburg address. Did you know that no one knows exactly where he gave the speech? And no one knows precisely what he said? Several different transcripts of the speech exist, each with slightly different phrasing. lincoln-11-19-3His speech wasnít even supposed to be the main feature that day! Instead, a two-hour oration by a former Secretary of State, Edward Everett, was supposed to be the highlight. Lincolnís two-minute speech would go down in history. Everettís has been mostly forgotten. Perhaps Everett saw the writing on the wall? He wrote to the...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KATV) -- Bill and Hillary Clinton returned to their humble political beginnings in Little Rock, Arkansas on Saturday to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Bill Clintonís presidential election victory and the 13th anniversary of the Clinton Presidential Centerís grand opening. The event brought together Clinton's campaign staff and the friends and family who played a role in the 1992 election. Sheila Bronfam is a long-time friend of Bill Clinton and had a hand in creating the Arkansas Travelers more than 25 years ago. The Travelers were a group of roughly 600 campaign volunteers who toured the United...
  • Remembering Stalingrad 75 Years Later

    11/09/2017 7:04:26 AM PST · by Kaslin · 83 replies ^ | November 9, 2017 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Seventy-five years ago this month, the Soviet Red Army surrounded --and would soon destroy -- a huge invading German army at Stalingrad on the Volga River. Nearly 300,000 of Germany's best soldiers would never return home. The epic 1942-43 battle for the city saw the complete annihilation of the attacking German 6th Army. It marked the turning point of World War II. Before Stalingrad, Adolf Hitler regularly boasted on German radio as his victorious forces pressed their offensives worldwide. After Stalingrad, Hitler went quiet, brooding in his various bunkers for the rest of the war. During the horrific Battle of...

    I've been listening all day for the screams and wailing from the snowflakes, SJW's, and leftards in remembrance of the anniversary of the election of President Trump. The silence is deafening. Has anyone heard anything? Isn't this the day that was supposed to witness the gnashing of teeth, the tearing of hair, the rendering of flesh and screaming at the sky?

    There are tens of millions of Americans right now who donít feel helpless at all. In fact, theyíve never felt happier that theyíve finally got a guy in the White House who THEY believe stands up for THEM. They donít share YOUR view of what it means to be an American. They share Trumpís view, because itís THEIR view. Thatís why he was elected President, and thatís why I am beginning to think he will be comfortably re-elected in 2020. For those who think Iíve gone completely mad, here is what I told British GQ magazine in September, 2015, when...

    On November 7 the world will mark a grim anniversary: One hundred years since the small but devout faction of Marxists called the Bolsheviks lost a popular election. It was the last one Russia would see for 70 years. Instead of accepting the people’s will, the Bolsheviks overthrew that country’s fledgling provisional government. That revolution unleashed a nightmare: a vicious civil war, the mass killing of clergy and religious believers, the slaughter of businessmen and landlords, and the building of concentration camps, 20 years before Hitler. In a single day, the Bolsheviks were known to boast, they killed more dissidents...

    Barack and Michelle Obama celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary on Tuesday. That's the silver anniversary. But the former president put some pink in his wife's cheeks with a lovey-dovey public ode to his beloved. In the morning, the former first lady posted a photo of herself as a bride on her wedding day with her groom. "A quarter of a century later, you're still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know. I (heart) you," she wrote. Then the former president showed off some enviable husband skills when he surprised his wife during her appearance with TV...

    The communists in the Antifa crowd are planning to begin a revolution in America on Saturday, November 4 ó almost exactly 100 years after the Bolshevik Revolution that took Russia out of the frying pan of Tsarist rule and into the fire of communist totalitarianism. While some see Antifa activists as the modern heroes of anti-Fascism ó fighting against racism, sexism, and a litany of other ďismsĒ ó and others see them merely as the snowflake crowd of spoiled brats demanding free everything, the reality is that Antifa is one tool in the communists' toolbox to bring America to her...

    Itís been a long year. As stories of Hurricane Irma dominate the headlines today, it is fascinating to look back and see how far weíve come since last yearís 9/11 headlines. On todayís date in 2016, the story on every TV station was about then candidate Hillary Clinton, who was videoed stumbling into a van after attending a 9/11 memorial service at Ground Zero. Questions over whether Clinton, who was seen at the time as the runaway to win the Presidency, was hiding some sort of illness, such as Parkinsonís, threatening to ruin her run. The Clinton campaign later put...

    Two decades ago today - Saturday August 30th 1997 - the ex-wife of the heir to the throne flew in to Paris with her new Egyptian boyfriend after a Mediterranean holiday on his yacht. They dined at his dad's showpiece, the Ritz, and shortly after midnight left via the rear entrance and got into a Mercedes driven by the hotel's deputy head of security. He was drunk, and in the underpass at the Place d'Alma he lost control of the car. Diana, Princess of Wales was pronounced dead at 4am on Sunday August 31st. She was 36. The clip below...

    Hall of Fame hurler Nolan Ryan left a lasting impression on the state of Texas and on Major League Baseball with an illustrious 27-year career. His 5,714 strikeouts, 324 wins and seven no-hitters cemented his legacy as one of the greats. But it was 24 years ago Friday that the Ryan Express immortalized himself -- and it didnít have much to do with his pitching that day. On August 4, 1993, the 46-year-old Ryan drilled Chicago White Sox third baseman Robin Ventura in the elbow with a fastball. Ventura then made a decision he undoubtedly regrets to this day. He...
