GOP Ad: The Left: An Unhinged Mob

Grant Versus Lee at the Wilderness

 May 6: Gordon's attacks: For years after the war, Gordon complained about the delay in approving his attack, claiming "the greatest opportunity ever presented to Lee's army was permitted to pass."[36]

Popular histories of Gettysburg proclaim that Lee suffered a great defeat at the hands of Meade and that the Confederacy’s strength was on the wane; however, Colonel Thomas L. Livermore of the US Army wrote: “After Gettysburg, the Confederacy had the same capacity for recruiting armies and supplying them as before, and the morale of the Army of Northern Virginia was just as good.  In the autumn of 1863, Lee crossed the Rapidan to attack Meade, and in December he came out of his entrenchments along Mine Run to attack, but failed to come to blows because Lee had retreated across the Rapidan in the night.”
Bernhard Thuersam,  The Great American Political Divide

Grant Versus Lee at the Wilderness

“In referring to the opening of the campaign in May 1864, Colonel Tyler, of the Thirty-seventh Massachusetts, wrote: “The Army of the Potomac had never won a decisive victory on Southern soil . . . The Army of Northern Virginia . . . against great odds had achieved victory after victory, and hardly tasted defeat.”

In May 1864 came General Grant with the prestige of his success in the southwest, and with the vast resources of the North and West at his call, confident that his 118,649 “present for duty equipped,” could defeat Lee’s 61,953.

But Grant was meeting Lee – “the greatest of all the great Captains that the English speaking people have brought forth,” whose name, says General Sir Frederic Maurice, must be added to the select group of the world’s greatest commanders named by Napoleon – Alexander, Hannibal, Caesar, Gustavus, Turenne, Eugene, and Frederick the Great.

[Northern] General [Morris] Schaff says . . . [in] the two days of deadly [at the Wilderness] encounter every man who could bear a musket had been put in; Hancock and Warren repulsed; Sedgewick routed, and now on the defensive behind breastworks; the cavalry drawn back; the [supply] trains seeking safety beyond the Rapidan.

Colonel T.L. Livermore estimates that the numbers engaged were: Federals, 101,895; and Confederates, 61,025. The total Federal losses in the Wilderness battles were 17,666. The Confederate losses were reported in only 70 out of 183 regiments; Livermore says, “it is not extravagant to estimate the Confederate losses at a total of 7,750.”

Recognizing Valor

“It is not the battle itself which is being celebrated, but the heroism of the men who took part in it. The battle itself was an abominable thing . . . In all its crimson horror . . . Not a thing to celebrate . . .

At Gettysburg thousands died in utmost agony . . . Good and gentle women were widowed and the happiness of homes was destroyed . . . We are not celebrating the battle . . . but the valor of the men who faced, without flinching, a thing that was infernal.”

2018 Midterms Project Veritas O’KEEFE: TN Dem Senate Campaign Says Their Candidate is Lying About Kavanaugh Support


Project Veritas Action Fund has released a second undercover video from campaigns during this 2018 election season. This report exposes Tennessee staffers from Phil Bredesen's U.S. Senate campaign revealing his willingness to court moderate voters through deceit. This was especially evidenced by Bredesen's recent statement suggesting he would, if he was already in the Senate, vote to confirm now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The Old South’s Poor Whites


There was a time, before universal white male suffrage and the closing of the frontier, when the poor whites of the South were considered shiftless and without caste. If we were to look at the South as a hierarchical system, it could be argued that the poor whites were a kind of pariah. There’s a common misconception that all whites during the antebellum period had an equal standing economically and socially.

The Old South was a complex society, not just a place comprised merely of free whites and enslaved blacks. There were indentured servants, African slaves, Native Americans, poor white yeoman farmers, and a wealthier landowning aristocracy. Some of the first colonies were owned by wealthy English barons (like the Lords Proprietors in Carolina) and after the Revolution, most states had property requirements that kept the poor whites from voting.

Two Men Accused of Filming, Raping 9-Month-Old Girl

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Two Tennessee men are accused of raping a 9-month-old girl and filming the attack. Isiah Dequan Hayes, 19, and Daireus Jumare Ice, 22, were indicted by a grand jury Tuesday on charges including especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.

Two men are accused of raping a nine-month-old girl in Tennessee and taping the horrific attack.

A grand jury indicted Isiah Dequan Hayes, 19, and Daireus Jumare Ice, 22, on Tuesday for multiple charges, including aggravated rape and aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.

Investigators say Hayes raped the infant while Ice filmed the attack. Hayes allegedly admitted to the crime when authorities arrested him in February.

The Shelby County District Attorney General’s Office said in a statement police became aware of the men in 2016 after the mother of the girl discovered video footage of the attack. The mother was able to identify the men in the video, prompting police to make the arrests.

One of the videos reportedly depicted one of the suspects exposing himself and touching himself with the half-naked child in view, while a second video showed the man performing sex acts on the infant, police said.

The arrest comes days after Michigan investigators discovered hundreds of videotapes inside an accused rapist’s home. Authorities believe there may be hundreds of victims linked to the tapes.

Well Worth While: Ex-Democrats Turned Trump Supporters Speak Out

CNN Commentator Slams Media For Not Calling Out Antifa “Mob” - "When I criticize the left, I'm basically a fascist"

Via Billy
As someone who spent the better part of a decade chronicling & lamenting the rise of what came to be called “Trumpism” on the Right, it’s worth pointing out that two of the many contributing factors to this were (a) liberal media bias, and (b) the radicalization of the Left.
Never Trumper and CNN commentator writer Matt Lewis broke ranks with many of his colleagues by slamming the media for failing to call out Antifa mob violence.

“It’s funny. When I criticize Trump (which is often!) I am treated as a “serious,” “thoughtful,” and “intellectually honest” conservative. When I criticize the Left, I’m basically a fascist. (I’m gonna keep criticizing both sides when they’re wrong!),” tweeted Lewis as he warned about the “radicalization” of the left.

South Africa’s Zulu Nation Joins White Farmers To Protest Government Land Seizures

Via Billy

Now, this is what unity looks like.  South Africa’s Zulu nation has joined forces with white farmers being subjected to racial land seizures in order to prevent the atrocity.

The largest ethnic group in South Africa, Zulu, has spoken out against the racial expropriation of land without compensation in the country. Zulu is ready to cooperate with the country’s white farmers, known as “Afrikaners” or “Boers” to prevent the seizure of their land, reported RT.  Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini has said the group will cooperate with South African minority rights group AfriForum because they desire to eat in the future.

James Woods: “I guess they want civil war… would not end well for them”

Via Billy


The extreme left is desperately trying to instigate a civil war, and prominent left-wing “leaders” are fueling the fire.

Take, for example, recent calls for violence from none other than Hillary Clinton, as James Woods pointed out on Twitter last night:

Not surprising that this wretched hag would jump on the violence bandwagon driven by Democrats these days. I guess they want civil war. That would be a terrible thing and surely would not end well for them.

FBI refuses to tell US Senate if Trump’s phones are tapped: ‘Is NSA or FBI listening in on our President?’

 The FBI Director just testified in the US Senate. I asked him if @realDonaldTrump phone conversations are getting collected in the FISA database. He wouldn't answer. Is NSA or FBI listening in on our President? We know bad actors exist within intel community. REFORM NEEDED NOW
Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Chris Wray did not answer when asked if the FBI or the National Security Agency is currently collecting President Donald Trump’s phone conversations.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., broached the subject Wednesday as Wray testified before a Senate committee hearing on national security issues, when he asked about intel agencies collecting data on international calls.

Trump is right: There's no possible way we can afford 'Medicare for all'

On Wednesday, President Trump authored an op-ed slamming "Medicare for all."

According to him, if Democrats succeed in implementing their single-payer proposal, "costs will spiral out of control. Taxes will skyrocket. And Democrats will seek to slash budgets for seniors' Medicare, Social Security and Defense."

He's absolutely right. Voters would do well to heed his warning.
