    When I first heard reports and saw Facebook posts calling for violence, it seemed a sensational fringe suffering from Trump derangement syndrome, but recent polls are showing that more and more leftists are seeing “civil war” as the only answer to save America. Trump is delivering on his promises to reverse President Obama’s leftist “transformation,” and the left hates him for it. Trump’s recent appointment of Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and his threat to close down government if he doesn’t get funding for his border wall has just further stirred up the left’s hornet’s nest! Demonstrations no...

    Eagle Action Report ^ | 7/12/2018 | Brett Rappaport
    I get up each day and check my phone, you know, emails, text messages, and of course Facebook. That’s where it starts. People who are supposedly my friends are furiously attacking me for my political thoughts or things that I post. It’s not just mild criticism or logical argument (I wish). Often, it’s downright nasty, offensive, and disturbing. Did you know I was a Nazi? A Fascist? A racist? A Bigot? I’m one of those evil conservatives too. Dare I ever mention the name Trump.
  • Rob Reiner: Fox, Breitbart ‘Trafficking in Another Narrative

    brietbart ^ | 08/01/2018 | Pam Key
    Wednesday, on “MSNBC Live with Katy Tur,” actor and director Rob Reiner made the argument that Fox News and Breitbart News Network are “trafficking in another narrative” that is different from outlets such as the Washington Post and the New York Times working to get the truth out and that we “might be the last stage of a civil war.” On the media, Reiner said, “I think of it as two mainstream medias. You have the Washington Post, the New York Times, all the networks except for Fox, working very hard to get the truth out.” He continued that while...

    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    The escalation of hostility and violence in the United States is becoming undeniable. Over the past couple years alone, there have been politicians calling for increased antagonism toward Trump and his supporters, protesters (sometimes violently) confronting the police and ICE, violent clashes on the streets between Antifa and patriot groups, and many other instances that signify dark times ahead for the US. Almost one third of the nation believes a civil war is imminent. If this worst-case scenario becomes reality, who would have the upper hand? Many on the right side of the political spectrum will hastily assume that they...

    In discussion of possible changes, report also asks, ‘What’s next and where do we stop?’ Known as both the “father of Texas” and the namesake of the state’s capital, Stephen F. Austin carved out the early outlines of Texas among his many accomplishments. He also opposed an attempt by Mexico to ban slavery in the province of Tejas and said if slaves were freed, they would turn into “vagabonds, a nuisance and a menace.” For that reason, the city of Austin’s Equity Office suggested renaming the city in a report about existing Confederate monuments that was published this week.

    “To the barricades, comrades!” That could be Nancy Pelosi’s battle cry come November . . . if you believe Malcolm Nance, that is. Appearing on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show this morning, terrorism analyst Nance raised the specter of Russian meddling with the Dems’ “blue wave” in the 2018 elections, suggesting the Ruskies might even resort to “direct messing with the ballots.” Nance said that such meddling: “would be tantamount to setting the grounds for civil war. Really, to be quite honest.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The American Spectator ^ | 07/26/18 | H. W. Crocker III
    Of that we can be sure. In the summer of 1862, just weeks before the Battle of Sharpsburg (or Antietam) — the bloodiest single day of fighting in American history — Union Captain George Armstrong Custer attended the wedding of Confederate Captain John “Gimlet” Lea at Bassett Hall in Williamsburg, Virginia, as best man. The Union officer was dressed in blue, the Confederate officer in grey, and Custer being Custer spent the next two weeks flirting with the Southern belle cousin of the bride, even joining her in singing “Dixie.” At one point she told him, “You ought to be...

    Frontpage Mag ^ | 07/20/2018 | Robert Spencer
    President Trump has once again drawn the sneers and condescension of the Leftist establishment media with his claim that “I am the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party—92 percent. Beating Lincoln. I beat our Honest Abe.” Lincoln, sniffed Newsweek, “died a decade before the telephone, which is used for polling, was even invented, and about 80 years before job approval polls for presidents started.” CNN intoned magisterially, “That’s a hard claim to back up.” But lost in the media contempt was the salient fact that Lincoln, as revered as he has been since his death, was...
  • Dinesh D'Souza explains 'outrageous' Trump-Lincoln comparison

    World Net Daily ^ | July 22, 2018 | Art Moore
    When Americans assess Donald Trump, a president who in many ways has broken the mold, comparisons don’t come easily. But Abraham Lincoln? That’s the startling proposition illustrated in promotional posters for Dinesh D’Souza’s upcoming film “Death of a Nation,” which contends America is once again faced with an existential crisis. In an interview with WND, D’Souza explained he is not asserting that Trump is Lincoln. “We are saying there are situations that are eerily similar, the accusations against the two men are remarkably similar and Trump can take a page from the great emancipator,” D’Souza said. The filmmaker, known for...

    UK Daily Mail ^ | 07/19/2018 | Iain Burns
    The first submarine to down an enemy ship was sunk itself after its crew failed to release an emergency weight to help it resurface. Crew aboard the Confederate vessel HL Hunley did not disconnect the 1,000lb keel blocks to help it rapidly resurface, resulting in the sub being trapped underwater and the men dying from lack of oxygen. Scientists who removed the corrosion, silt and shells from the boat found the levers all locked in their regular position, solving a mystery dating back to 1864. The blocks would typically keep the sub upright, but also could be released with three...

    Confederate General Jubal Early, leading about 10,000 men of the Second Corp, Army of Northern Virginia attacks Fort Stevens in Washington DC. The Union forces around in and around the fort are about equal to Early's force. As the attack develops, additional reinforcements from two Union Corps arrive on scene and stall Early's assault. The next day,skirmishing continues, but Early has decided any further attacks will only result in high casualties with little chance of success. He begins withdrawing his forces back into Virginia.
