    Remember America: The Left and the media tried their best to bring this to our nation. Thank God for President Trump! Paris has been under martial law for almost 2 years. The media is maintaining a blackout, especially now that France is about to have an historic election. The left can't hide the facts of Muslim riots, rape and murder. The people know, just as we knew here in America that Trump would be our man in the White House to prevent this from happening here. WHERE THE F**K ARE THE BBC , ITV , SKY , CNN , MSNBC...

    The Second American Civil War is gradually coalescing into an observable phenomenon. The lines are being drawn and people are taking sides in noticeable ways. As it now stands, we have something of a "cold war" going on as it once existed between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Espionage, intelligence breaches, clandestine black bag operations, fifth column saboteurs, and the like. But important questions remain: As the war continues, how will the conflict evolve? Will it escalate? If so, what will be the flashpoint that puts it in full motion? Will it turn into a full-fledged armed conflict? As...

    It is becoming apparent that some very powerful people behind the scenes have been running the country independently of who is in the Executive, Legislative or Judicial seats of power. When they get upset, they drive whomever they don't like or over whom they have no control out of power. These same people or entities have know all of the things that Obama and Hillary and those directed by them did, but said nothing about it because they were doing the bidding of the powerful. They also know what the media has been doing and obviously approve of it. All...

In Oct. 2014, Davis’ answer was optioned by a Hollywood producer for a potential television series. These are the accounts of the Second American Civil War, also known as the Wars of Reunification and the American Warring States Period.

    It is said that if we ignore history, we will repeat it. How can we follow this quintessential maxim if we allow people to erase or rewrite history? Recently, Charlottesville City in Virginia, voted to tear down a statue of Robert E. Lee at a cost of $300,000.

    Threatening secession is far from the only thing that the Golden State has in common with the Old South. Over 60 percent of California voters went for Hillary Clinton — a margin of more than 4 million votes over Donald Trump. Since Clinton’s defeat, the state seems to have become unhinged over Trump’s unexpected election. “Calexit” supporters brag that they will have enough signatures to qualify for a ballot measure calling for California’s secession from the United States. Some California officials have talked of the state not remitting its legally obligated tax dollars to the federal government. They talk of...

    Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com For months now, long before the 2016 election, I have been warning about a specific social dynamic which is likely to lead to a form of civil war within the U.S.; namely, the reality that people on the left side of the political spectrum would become despondent at the inevitable loss of their candidate, Hillary Clinton, and that they would react by becoming far more militant.

    Where does this end? The progressives’ rejection of the presidential election, the obstruction and social disruption – what is its purpose? Is this the Democrats in 1861, or the Bolsheviks in 1917? Four months after the Democrats warned that refusing to accept the outcome of the presidential election would tear the country apart, they are refusing to accept the outcome of the presidential election. In coordinated nationwide demonstrations, in random outbreaks of campus violence, in shrill denunciations and boycotts, a secession has taken place. A non-geographic civil war has seemingly been declared. In rejecting the outcome of an election in...

At the time it was hailed as a glorious victory for the SJW and a very sad day for many southerners. Now, less than two years later a different version of the flag is back up again, but at a different location. The Confederate battle flag is going back up at a monument in a northwestern South Carolina town. Luther Lyle had maintained the memorial in Walhalla...

    The little Episcopalian prayer book did not have the easiest journey to the Rev. Robert Alves' private collection. "This one has actually been in the ocean," says, Alves, holding up a leather-bound copy of the Confederate Book of Common Prayer. In 1863, the book was part of a shipment of devotionals headed to Confederates in the battlefield. But Union ships were in hot pursuit of a Rebel blockade runner carrying the devotionals and other supplies off the coast of Beaufort. The Confederate sailors, before eventually running aground, dumped cargo to lighten the load, including the books. U.S. Naval Commander Daniel...

    It is time for our society to acknowledge a sad truth: America is currently fighting its second Civil War. In fact, with the obvious and enormous exception of attitudes toward slavery, Americans are more divided morally, ideologically and politically today than they were during the Civil War. For that reason, just as the Great War came to be known as World War I once there was World War II, the Civil War will become known as the First Civil War when more Americans come to regard the current battle as the Second Civil War. This Second Civil War, fortunately, differs...

An attitude of war toward each other but restrained, in this case by mutual assured destruction if they came to blows. Now America is in a...

    Rebel resistance in the Syrian city of Aleppo has ended, Russia says, after years of fighting and months of bitter siege and bombardment that culminated in a bloody retreat, as insurgents agreed to withdraw in a ceasefire. The battle of Aleppo, one of the worst of a civil war that has drawn in global and regional powers, has ended with victory for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his military coalition of Russia, Iran and regional Shi'ite militias. For rebels, their expected departure with light weapons starting on Wednesday morning for opposition-held regions west of the city is a crushing blow...
