    CNN ^ | 7/9/20 | Michael Conte
    Washington(CNN) America's top general launched an outspoken attack on the Confederacy and signaled his support for the military renaming bases named for Confederate leaders on Wednesday, in his latest public comments that seem to put him at odds with President Donald Trump. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley did not hold back in an appearance before the House Armed Service Committee, stating that "those officers turned their back on their oath," referring to the names on the bases. "It was an act of treason, at the time, against the Union, against the Stars and Stripes, against...

    As America gets ready to celebrate her 244nd birthday this as a nation, we should take a moment and pause to wonder what became of this once mighty nation. Is it so far-fetched to believe that our nation will not last forever? Or even last another decade intact? Would we recognize her 10-20 years from now? Would the Founders of this once great nation even recognize her today? Most likely not. Looking around today, it seems almost inconceivable that 400 years ago, our nation was once forged by Pilgrims who were fleeing an oppressive, monarchical Europe, seeking only religious liberty...

    Special Dispatch to the New-York Times. WASHINGTON, Sunday, July 8. During the difficulties with the Mormons, which came near leading to a serious collision with the American troops, a plan proposed by Capt. WALTER M. GIBSON for the immediate emigration of the Mormons to Oceanica was adopted by BRIGHAM YOUNG, and forwarded to Dr. BERNHEISEL to be laid before the President for his approval, with a request for some proposition on the part of the Government to purchase their improvements in Utah. The President refused to notice the matter further than to remark that BRIGHAM YOUNG could do as he...

    In last week's article I discussed the issue of American “balkanization” and the rapid migration of conservatives and moderates from large population centers and states that are becoming militant in their progressive ideology. In my home state of Montana there has been a surge of people trying to escape the chaos and oppression of leftist states. Some are here because of the pandemic and the harsh restrictions they had to endure during the first lockdowns. Others are here because they can't stand the hostility of identity politics, cancel culture and race riots. Either way, they are fleeing places with decidedly...
  • We Are Headed Towards Massive Racial Unrest

    The whole issue of racism in America has quickly reached a level that is cultic in nature. People are being fired from their source of employment for simply saying that “all forms of racism are wrong.” As web companies clamp down on free speech in the name of ‘social justice,’ going so far as to red-flag the President of the United States and label Christian doctrinal statements as ‘unsafe,’ one tech giant just warned the public that hate speech against ‘majority groups’ doesn’t count. Reddit wants consumers to know that you can say whatever you want about white people, and...

    Yesterday was the day appointed by the Governor of New-Jersey for the execution of the sentence imposed upon JACOB S. HARDEN for the murder of HANNAH DORLAND HARDEN, his wife. The facts connected with the death, arrest, trial and conviction, have, in full details, been given to our readers, and it now remains for us to present the last dark picture in the tragedy, and leave the rest to be settled between the murderer and his Maker.

    Special Dispatch to the New-York Times. WASHINGTON, Thursday, July 5. MORE INDIAN TROUBLES. The Commissioner of Indian Affairs received important intelligence this morning from Nebraska Territory. Agent GILLIS, under date of June 22, writes that 200 or more Cheyenne. Arrappahoe and Sioux Indians had just attacked a Pawnee village in sight of the agency and killed several persons. Mr. GILLIS rode in among the attacking party, and with assistance of a half-breed Pawnee interpreter, succeeded in inducing them to draw off. They declared their purpose to return and "wipe out the Pawnee tribe." An express was immediately sent to Col....

    On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln headed on horseback through the streets of Gettysburg to deliver his most famous speech. He rode past the impressive gatehouse at the Evergreen Cemetery to the newly dug graves of Union soldiers that lay beyond it. The gatehouse was the home of a German immigrant family that had endured the battle and spearheaded the first burials after it ended.

    To-day, the eighty-fourth anniversary of our national independence, will be celebrated throughout the country, but nowhere, probably, with more enthusiasm than in the Metropolis. The almost continued noise of exploding fireworks during the past few days, the flaming handbills of the pyrotechnists, the multifarious excursions advertised, and the extensive transportation of fireworks by overloaded fond parents, having an eye to young America, have already given us a foretaste of the celebration that is to take place to-day. It is true that the City Fathers have only been pleased to appropriate less than one-fourth the sum set apart for the entertainment...

    The Indian troubles have occurred six hundred miles west of Camp Floyd. One or two stations have been threatened between here and Ruby Val- ley, (300 miles west;) but between Ruby Valley and Carson City the Mail and Express route has been almost abandoned.

    The Federalist ^ | 07/02/2020 | John Daniel Davidson
    Last week I wrote about how we’re in a cultural civil war and it’s time for conservatives—and really, anyone who’s not on board with the radical anti-American agenda of Black Lives Matter and the rest of the woke left—to fight back.But how? I was light on specifics, and subsequently heard from a number of readers who wanted to know what they could do, personally, to push back against the leftward lurch of the culture. Many said they feel powerless and overwhelmed, and with good reason.Silicon Valley, Hollywood, academia, the mainstream media, corporate America, and the entire Democratic Party (along...

    The Catholic Archbishop of New-York, having recently distinguished himself by an offer to die on the scaffold rather than register the names of the couples he married, has now come forward to explain to his faithful people how divine a thing is the right of Popes to govern wrong and to beg the money of American citizens for the support of a Government which has filled its prisons with political captives, makes the sale of the Scriptures a felony, and hires foreign mercenaries to compel with the bayonet the love, and fidelity of the subjects committed to its care, as...
  • FAKE HISTORY: USA Today Pretends Democrats Didn’t Found the KKK, Start Civil War (They Did)

    Newsbusters ^ | 07/01/2020 | Scott Whitlock
    Apparently, if you don’t like certain facts, you can just declare them false. That seems to be the thinking behind a USA Today “fact check” pretending that Democrats didn’t start the Civil War and found the KKK. But, they did. In a June 30 assertion USA Today rated “false,” the paper began, “Claim: The Democratic Party started the Civil War to preserve slavery and later the KKK.” The entire article essentially conceded that the Confederacy was run by Democrats, made up by Democrats, as was the KKK. But don’t blame the Democratic Party for that! USA Today writer Devon Link...

    The next election is now about four months away, and some commentators are saying things are going to get nasty. Words that come to mind as I read this are devilish, ugly, anarchy, orchestrated chaos, insurrection, planned wickedness, incitement of trouble, weaponized Antifa terrorists, Black Lives Matter, and others. Liberal Democrats (Pelosi, Schumer), Planned Parenthood, gays, etc., are desperate to retake the White House and prevent the loss of another seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Powerful globalists (Soros, Kissinger, Clinton, etc.) are passionate about world government, and they want to continue the surrender of America to meet the UN...

And through you we would also tender to our friends present, who have given to us so cordial a welcome, our heartfelt thanks. It was always pleasant to get away from the cares and...

    So let me see if I have this right. At this very moment, when America is being torn apart in a vicious race war planned and carried out by the radical Left, the supposed conservative news station, Fox, is going to feature race-baiting hate preacher Louis Farrakhan in a ‘sermon’ vilifying the United States. On July 4th. Are you kidding me? If you recall, we warned you way back in 2017, the year I stopped watching Fox, that they had gone Liberal to an extreme. Fox News is just as fake as all the rest. This absurd message of hate...

    One of the largest political meetings ever held in Kings Country was held by the Republicans last evening, in City Hall Park, to ratify the nominations made by the Republican National Convention at Chicago. A few rockets, a calcium light and a band of music, aside from the speaking, were all the attractions offered to induce a large attendance. At the stand in the Park the meeting was organized by electing GEORGE FIELD, Esq., of the Thirteenth Ward, Chairman, and the usual number of Vice-Presidents and Secretaries. During the meeting the "Wide Awake" Battalion of the Rocky Mountain Club arrived,...
