Lincoln, the Movie: A Review

Posted: Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

It is has been said that the motion picture industry created an American West of the second half of the 19th century that never was, but always will be. The same could be said about the myth of Abraham Lincoln, who has been transformed by multitudes of books, novels, movies, articles, textbooks, and selective historical accounts into the greatest politician, and maybe even greatest personality, America has ever produced.

The Sad History of U.S. Peace Negotiations

Posted: Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Thirteen Days That Shook the World - and Nearly Ended It

Posted: Friday, November 2nd, 2012

The black, sinister-looking Soviet SS-4 intermediate-range missile on display at Havana's La Cabana fortress looks old, roughly finished, and rather primitive. But this missile, and 41 others (including some longer-ranged SS-5's) terrified the United States during the October 1962 missile crisis - 13 days that shook the world.

General W. T. Sherman: The Slaughterer of the Innocent

Posted: Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

  The phrase "collective responsibility" is rather pleasant sounding, with its implication that, perhaps, we should all collectively take responsibility for our own actions. What parents should not teach their children such things? But for at least the past 150 years "collective responsibility" also has a specific meaning with regard to U.S. military policy. In the military context, "collective responsibility" is a euphemism for the mass murder of innocent civilians.

Minnesota's Dakota War of 1862

Posted: Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

150 years ago, a bloody conflict erupted in Minnesota that would change its history.

How J. Edgar Hoover Saved the Nation

Posted: Monday, January 9th, 2012

"Hoover and his men fought valiantly -and sometimes almost alone -against this massive Red infiltration, the cover-up and the hazards these presented. The chart above, prepared at Hoover's direction at the time of the Alger Hiss case, indicates some of the innumerable reports the FBI submitted to U.S. agencies in the period 1945-48 about the extent and nature of the penetration. While these reports in many cases were disparaged or ignored, they did lead in time to the gradual ouster of some of more flagrant comrades from official payrolls. Hoover and Co. thus saved the nation from even greater perils than those that in fact befell it."

Who Really Discovered America?

Posted: Friday, January 6th, 2012

"How might history have played itself out with those first explorers succeeded is hard to guess. Columbus came with the banner of the Roman Catholic Church and the queen of Spain. Those that followed him streamed into the New World in search of gold determined to conquer the indigenous population. Considering the Norsemen's fascination with war for war's sake, it is doubtful the end result would have been much different; however, the truth is, we will really never know."

Forbes: Rich Nations Go Broke by Overpromising and Overspending

"Cato Institute senior fellow Jim Powell wrote in Forbes magazine about the inevitable and predictable decline of rich nations that debauched their currencies in order to pay their bills. Powell said that politicians' urge to promise and then to spend is almost overwhelming, calling it "a visceral urge to spend money they don't have. They can't control themselves. They'll weasel their way around any efforts to put the lid on the cookie jar."

In the winter of 1813, the war with the British was not going well for the Americans.

British warships patrolled Lake Erie and harassed American interests in Pennsylvania and the Ohio Territory...

Mary Ludwig Hays McCauley: Molly Pitcher

Posted: Thursday, November 17th, 2011

"Whether Molly Pitcher is the name of one woman or many is of little matter. In fact, it is fitting that the name probably serves as a composite of many women who fought and died alongside their husbands. Unlike modern wars with volunteer armies going off to distant places, Molly and her husband were defending their homeland and their way of life. As such, we should join General Washington in saluting these women by the name he gave Mary Hays - 'Sergeant Molly.'"

The Progressive Income Tax and the Joy of Spending Other People's Money

Posted: Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

"Charitable givers and politicians both pursue their self-interest, but the politician's self-interest includes winning votes. That means, if possible, channeling subsidies to voting groups to win reelection at the expense of taxpayers in general. Rockefeller's gifts to Tuskegee did not cost anyone but him any money. FDR's subsidy to silver miners, by contrast, cost millions of taxpayers small amounts of tax revenue."

Did Capitalism Create Terrible Monopolies?

Posted: Thursday, July 28th, 2011

"It is not easy to understand the hostility toward a system that has made possible the greatest explosion in wealth and living standards in human history, and which has done more to eradicate poverty than all the rock stars and government transfer programs put together. (Ludwig von Mises takes a crack at it in The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality.) People seem almost eager to believe the most transparently false claims about the market. Commerce is viewed with suspicion. We treat merchants with a disdain we would never show the TSA. The critical role of the entrepreneur is not understood at all."

By the time Helen was seven, she was so unmanageable that her family had just about given up hope. On February 3, 1887, Helen's father wrote a letter to Alexander Graham Bell, who eleven years earlier had also the invented the telephone, thanking the inventor for taking an interest in his little girl. By May of 1888 Helen's family and Bell were exchanging many letters."

When Winston Warned America: Churchill's "Iron Curtain" at 65

Posted: Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

"Nobody knows what Soviet Russia and its Communist international organization intends to do in the immediate future, or what are the limits, if any, to their expansive and proselytizing tendencies….             From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of central and eastern Europe. Warsaw, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Bucharest, Sofia, all these famous cities and the populations around them lie in the Soviet sphere and all are subject, in one form or another, not only to Soviet influence but to a very high and increasing measure of control from Moscow." - Winston Churchill

An Ignorant Citizenry Tolerates Tyranny

  "Who can cure this ignorance? Surely not the members of academia or the media. They in fact are busy schooling the nation in accepting the totalitarian State.             The pulpits in our nation once instructed the people in the purpose, function, and limitations of the State through yearly election and artillery sermons. These sermons were routinely preached for over 100 years in our nation. Clergymen understood that God's Word addressed all matters of life, including the matters of civil government."

Apparently U.S. students are unfamiliar with the famous paraphrased aphorism, "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Results from the 2010 gold standard of testing, the National Assessment of Educational Progress, only 13 percent of the nation's high school seniors showed proficiency in their knowledge of American history, and only 18 percent of eighth grades and 22 percent of fourth graders scoring as well.
