Silly Remarks and Stoney Silence at Gettysburg

Of Lincoln’s short address at Gettysburg in late 1863, the president’s secretary John G. Nicolay said “it was revised [for later publication].” Ward Lamon, intimate friend of Lincoln and his US Marshal for the District of Columbia; Historian Shepherd of Baltimore; W.H. Cunningham of the Montgomery (Missouri) Star, who all sat immediately behind Lincoln at Gettysburg, agreed and publicly stated that the speech later published was not the one delivered by Lincoln that day. In addition, both Edward Everett and Seward expressed disappointment and there was no applause for Lincoln. (See: Abraham Lincoln & Jefferson Davis: Two Presidents, C.E. Gilbert & Tom Hudson, Naylor Company, 1973)

Silly Remarks and Stoney Silence at Gettysburg

“On November 19, 1863, the State of Pennsylvania decided to dedicate the cemetery at Gettysburg. They sent the President of the United States an invitation which went out to many other dignitaries as a matter of courtesy. Pennsylvania had already made arrangements for that dedication.

The address was to be delivered by the foremost orator of the day, Edward Everett, President of Harvard, former Governor of Pennsylvania, and former Ambassador to the Court of St. James. In his 70th year Mr. Everett was a handsome man and a brilliant figure on the platform. The authorities of Pennsylvania gave him two months in which to prepare his address.

Meanwhile the President . . . was looking at this printed circular and thought that maybe he should go, even if only to sit and bow his head for the men and boys from both sides who were buried there.

When the President notified the committee that he would like to come, they were upset. They knew that protocol demanded that the President speak at such a function, and they were worried lest he spoil the effect of Everett’s address. As politely as they knew how they notified the President that Mr. Everett was to make the major address and that he (the President) would be called upon to “say a few words.”

When Everett was introduced, he bowed low to the President, then stood in silence before a crowd of 15,000 people that stretched far out to the limits of the cemetery field. Mr. Everett began low: “Overlooking these broad fields now reposing from the labors of the waning year, the mighty Alleghenies dimly towering before us, the graves of our brethren beneath our feet . . .” He then gave an outline of the causes of the Civil War, and described the terrible three-day battle at Gettysburg. He spoke for one hour and 57 minutes, closing with a peroration from Pericles: “The whole earth is a sepulcher of illustrious men.”

Then came the President’s turn to speak. He fumbled for his steel-rimmed glasses, put his high stove-pipe hat on the floor beside his chair, and took out a wrinkled piece of paper . . .

On the way back to Washington he said that his speech was a flat failure. He had not expected to get the cheers that Everett had received, but he certainly expected a little more than the stony silence that had greeted his remarks.

The next few days came the newspaper stories of the event. The Patriot, a local paper at nearby Harrisburg said: “The President acted without sense . . . so let us pass over his silly remarks.” “The cheek of every American must tingle with shame as he reads the silly, flat utterances of the President.”

The correspondent for the London Times wrote: “Anything more dull and commonplace it would not be easy to reproduce.”

Now these two-faced, lying, disgusting pieces of garbage and their revolting, dishonest, corrupt media lackeys are whining and sniveling about how the president is responsible for the Pittsburgh massacre.

President Donald Trump issued another warning on Monday to migrants in the caravan traveling through Mexico, telling them they would not be allowed into the United States.

“This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!” Trump warned on Twitter.

Trump commented after the Pentagon revealed that up to 5,000 active duty troops would be deployed to the Southern border to stop the caravan, now estimated to include 7,000 people from various South American countries.

“Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border,” Trump wrote.

He urged the migrants in the caravan to return to their home countries and apply for legal entry into the United States.

“Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process,” he wrote:

Big Horn Armory AR500: 3,700 ft-lbs of Big Bore Record-Breaking Awesomeness (Full Review)

I don’t often get the chance to review a record-breaking firearm. The usual suspects in my T&E lineup – bolt action .308’s, semi-auto CCW’s, and pump-action shotguns – are functional and fun to shoot, but few are as unique as the AR500 from Big Horn Armory.

The AR500 is, according to the company’s claims and my own research, the most powerful short-range semi-auto rifle in the world. Chambered in the .50-caliber 500 Auto Max cartridge, the AR500 packs a wallop in a modified AR-10 platform. Its semi-auto action is perfect for big and dangerous game hunters, and it offers the maneuverability and customizability inherent in the AR platform. Combined with Buffalo Bore’s 350, 400, and 440 grain loads, the AR500 is ready to bring down, quite literally, any kind of critter you’re hoping to hunt.

First, spec sheet/feature list.

 Graham: The only people yelling at me ‘would turn the country into a mob’
Shouting protesters repeatedly interrupted the rally, including a moment of silence for victims of a shooting in a synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday that left 11 people dead.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said in a tweet on Monday that the only people yelling at him are those who want to turn the U.S. into a "mob."

"All the people wanting to yell at me would turn the country into a mob ... they don't respect the presumption of innocence," Graham tweeted.

"They have a view of the government that would make us Venezuela."

Photo Evidence Shows Caravan Migrants Carrying USAID Bags — Paid for US Taxpayers

Breaking reports overnight ties the migrant caravan in Mexico working its way to the US to billionaire George Soros, the man behind nearly every anti-American group working against the USA over the past decade.

The migrant caravan coming up through Mexico is obviously funded by some far left group.

The migrant caravan of mostly young men from all parts of the world were pictured receiving money from individuals embedded in the caravan.  Overnight reporting shows that the funding behind the massive gang of mostly men coming to the US border is being funded in part by a group tied to USAID:

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach: Trump is not to blame for the Pittsburgh massacre & Jewish leader says community is 'comforted' by Trump

Trump is not to blame for the Pittsburgh massacre    

This past Saturday, the Jewish day of rest, a middle-aged man burst into a baby-naming service at a Pittsburgh synagogue. What followed was the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in American history.

Eleven men and women, who had come only to celebrate and to pray, were gunned down, their blood pooling around their scattered prayer books. A heroic team of local police officers charged the shul under heavy fire. Though many sustained severe injuries, the massacre was finally brought to an end.

The gunman was captured and should, in my opinion, face the death penalty.

Despite all the calumnies against him, incl the latest & ugliest that dares to label him responsible for the Pittsburgh synagogue carnage by a Jew-hating Nazi sympathizer OPENLY CONTEMPTUOUS of POTUS @realDonaldTrump, today's POTUS Trump approval at 50%! 

What Blue Wave?

Trump approval hits 50% after tumultuous week of violent attacks that shook the nation.

The latest Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.

Everyone is smart except Trump when it comes to Putin negotiations: That brilliance explains why they are all billionaires who were elected president.

Only Trump does not know what he is doing. Only Trump does not know how to negotiate with Vladimir Putin.  Anderson Cooper knows how to stand up to Putin.  The whole crowd at MSNBC does.  All the journalists do.

They could not stand up to Matt Lauer at NBC.  They could not stand up to Charlie Rose at CBS. 

They could not stand up to Mark Halperin at NBC. Nor up to Leon Wieseltier at The New Republic, nor Jann Wenner at Rolling Stone, nor Michael Oreskes at NPR, at the New York Times, or at the Associated Press.  But — oh, wow! — can they ever stand up to Putin!

Only Trump is incapable of negotiating with the Russian tyrant

Remember the four years when Anderson Cooper was President of the United States?  And before that — when the entire Washington Post editorial staff jointly were elected to be President?

Remember?  Neither do I.

Deployment numbers are increase from initial estimates of 800 troops

The U.S. military plans to deploy 5,000 troops to the southwest U.S. border in anticipation of a caravan of would-be asylum seekers and migrants currently moving northward in Mexico, U.S. officials said Monday.

The new figure is a major increase from initial estimates of 800 troops and would represent a military force equal to about one-third the number of customs officials currently working at the border. The military sent about 2,000 National Guard troops to the area earlier this year.

As thousands of Central Americans continue marching north, President Trump reportedly plans to make a major immigration speech on Tuesday.

According to the Washington Post, he is expected to announce that he is invoking emergency powers, on national security grounds, to stop those people and others from entering the United States.
“I think what the president has been saying and will continue to say, and certainly what I have been saying, is, this caravan is not getting in,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told “Fox News Sunday.”
