    Sweden on brink of civil war, National Police Chief: “Help us, help us!” Sweden’s National Police Commissioner, Dan Eliasson, spoke on national television and pleaded for assistance: “Help us, help us!,” he said, while warning that Swedish police forces no longer can uphold the law and therefore must ask all "good powers" in the country to support them, reports Nicolai Sennels of Jihad Watch. A leaked report concluded that the number of lawless areas (commonly referred to as “no-go zones”) in Sweden now totals 61, up from 55 in just one year’s time. This increase represents not only the total...

    The guys behind HBO's Game of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have a new project in the works called Confederate. The Civil War project is set up at HBO and they will start work on it as soon as they are done with Game of Thrones. Here's the description of the series: Confederate chronicles the events leading to the Third American Civil War. The series takes place in an alternate timeline, where the southern states have successfully seceded from the Union, giving rise to a nation in which slavery remains legal and has evolved into a modern institution. The...

    Too many people believe that slavery is a "peculiar institution." That's what Kenneth Stampp called slavery in his book, "Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-Bellum South." But slavery is by no means peculiar, odd or unusual. It was common among ancient peoples such as the Egyptians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Hittites, Greeks, Persians, Armenians and many others. Large numbers of Christians were enslaved during the Ottoman wars in Europe. White slaves were common in Europe from the Dark Ages to the Middle Ages. It was only after A.D. 1600 that Europeans joined with Arabs and Africans and started the Atlantic slave trade....

    You don’t have to dig very deep into the American psyche to notice that hostilities are boiling up to a dangerous level. With mainstream media’s almost 24/7 coverage of possible collusion between Trump and Russia, many Americans are beginning to view a nuclear superpower as their enemy. I don’t believe the collusion exists, but sometimes people’s opinions have a more powerful effect on the world than what is true. Furthermore, the divide between the left and right in the US seems like one violent moment away from breaking out into all out war. So, my question is, which is more...

    President Donald Trump is donating his first quarter’s salary to restoring historical structures at the Antietam National Battlefield — a Civil War site and stage of the bloodiest single day battle in U.S. history. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke announced Trump’s $78,333 donation Wednesday in front of crowd gathered at Antietam. Trump’s salary will go toward restoring the Newcomer House Civil War information center and 5,000 feet of Civil War style fencing. “I can find no better investment in our country than our battlefields. As a former Navy Seal … It’s preserving our heritage of why we fight,” Zinke...

    House Democrats are on a mission to educate the American people about a little-known power of the 25th Amendment — the ousting of the president. Led by freshman Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, a group of growing Democratic co-signers has put forth a bill that could force President Donald Trump from office if he were found mentally or physically unfit.

    Just a short clip from the movie Gettysburg to remind us both of the horror and courage displayed 154 years ago on this date. Those who have served excepted, how many of us would truly be willing to give all for their God, family and country? Whatever your viewpoint is on the American Civil War, never forget the events depicted. The time may yet come again.

    Far left Antifa activists are planning to protest at Gettysburg National Battlefield on the anniversary of the historic battle and burn confederate flags on the historic day. The violent far left group has been vandalizing Confederate monuments across the country this year.Harrisburg100 reported: Over the past few weeks, several US cities have been a hotbed of controversy over the removal of several Confederate monuments. After decades standing sentinel over New Orleans, the last of four Confederate monuments have been removed after being labeled as “Monuments of Racism and Hate”. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said of the removal of his...

    We are on the precipice of a Civil War and, if we are not careful, the degradation of the very fabric of our republic Not long ago, an old friend texted me her thoughts on President Trump. She felt that he should immediately be impeached for the following reasons: he was a dictator, he colluded with Russia, that he tampered with the FBI investigation, he has practiced gross misconduct and that he is a “dumba”. Furthermore, Obama put stuff in place during his administration for the good of our country and now we are spending tax dollars undoing these things,...

    The present and future ownership of America, and indeed her existence, are in serious dispute. Our nation is more divided than ever in my thus far seventy-six years of life. That augurs well neither for our future as a nation nor for those of us who want our country back. Asking "Pretty please, Kind Masters, may we have our country back?" won't help. Robert Frost tried to read a poem he had written for JFK's inauguration but was unable to do so. He had difficulties due to the bright sun and his age. It was a cold and sunny day in 1961...

    <p>The left has been at war against America for decades. The right represents those of us who favor individual freedom and capitalism — and the left are those who want government controls and socialism.</p> <p>Political violence became an essential and successful means of leftist warfare in the 60’s, the decade of destruction. The success of the violent “student rebellion” in 1964 and the so-called Free Speech Movement has set the table for the left’s warmongering and treason. It was clear from the outset that the “student revolution” violently ushered in at Berkeley in the mid-sixties would come to this. The left is evil, and they mean to destroy our way of life, our freedom and us. It took decades to norm their anti-Americanism, their hatred of freedom and individual rights but they have reached their tipping point. And the long beaten and battered among us have had it.</p>

    Things will never be the same in America from this moment forward. When 66-year-old James Hodgkinson attempted to gun down as many Republican members of Congress as possible at a baseball field in Virginia, he permanently shattered the notion that we could go back to the way that things used to be in this country. At one time, Republicans and Democrats may have strongly disagreed with one another over the issues, but there was always a certain code of civility that everyone understood and respected. But now that is long gone, and if our politicians and the big media outlets...

    So much for defanging the poisonous debate in Washington. Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park. Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it. One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.” The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP...

    Top party official called for 'violence, death, blood in the streets'! There is no doubt that politics in the United States now include a level of violence not seen in recent memory. It comes as factions of the Democratic Party have proven unable to accept the fact their candidate for president, now twice-failed Hillary Clinton, lost a decisive election to the GOP candidate, Donald Trump, in 2016. It means they are not able to continue pushing the nation in a far-left progressive direction, as they did over and over again under Barack Obama. Even during the campaign, Trump supporters faced...

    CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46) - On a day when lawmakers from both sides of the aisle in Washington are asking Americans to unite, a loyal Starbucks customer says she was targeted for supporting Donald Trump. Starbucks said they are making sure this incident won't happen again. "I don't know what politics has to do with getting a cup of coffee," Kayla Hart said. Hart walked in to Starbucks on East Boulevard in Dilworth on Wednesday morning, wearing a Donald Trump t-shirt. Instead of being greeted with a smile, Kayla said the cashier laughed and her order was labeled with a...

    Republican Congressman and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot early Wednesday morning in Alexandria, Virginia while practicing for the Congressional baseball game at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park. Scalise was shot in the hip and is reportedly in stable condition. His staffers and two Capitol Police officers were also shot. At least five people were hit. "He was dragging his body from second base to the infield to get away fro the shooter," Rep. Mo Brooks, who was at the scene and applied a tourniquet to Scalise, described to CNN. "My adrenaline is raging. It's never easy when everyone around...

    George Orwell said, "The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history." In the former USSR, censorship, rewriting of history and eliminating undesirable people became part of Soviets' effort to ensure that the correct ideological and political spin was put on their history. Deviation from official propaganda was punished by confinement in labor camps and execution. Today there are efforts to rewrite history in the U.S., albeit the punishment is not so draconian as that in the Soviet Union. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu had a Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee...

    Like it or not, Civil War monuments, like the Civil War itself, represent an eternal human struggle: How much of our soul, how much of our free thinking, do we give to the monolith of our society? The Left is history's ultimate monolith and greedily wants our obedience and refusal to question. And that's fine, so long as society is "correct". But what happens when it isn't? What happens when the monolith controls so much of the Means of Information and Education that the enlightened individual can no longer raise the alarm? When the hard Left rewrites our history it...
