Before Major General John Pope was summoned by President Lincoln to command a combination of reorganized forces called “the Army of Virginia,” in June of 1862, he had distinguished himself as a ruthless opponent of Confederate partisans in Missouri and as an aggressive commander in Mississippi.  He encouraged his troops to plunder civilian food sources, burn homes in any area of Confederate resistance, hang civilians suspected of aiding Confederate forces, and shoot civilians in reprisal for Confederate guerilla attacks.  He continued his severe philosophy of war in Virginia, drawing the resolute enmity of Confederate Generals Lee and Jackson.  During Pope’s rise to fame and favor with Lincoln, he received much praise in the Northern press, until his ignominious defeat in September 1862 at the hands of Jackson and Longstreet at Second Manassas.

The dangerous
The dangerous "Obammacoccus Stupidicus" Virus (Greatly Magnified).

We all know that the “zombies” have been among us for quite some time!  Stupid “zombie” shows on TV entertain the mentally challenged mouth breathers among the population, keeping them occupied and relatively harmless while the normal adult population tries to go about their daily routines, struggling in increasing frustration to keep their lives on a “straight line”, their struggling finances above water, and their status as free citizens still intact.  Add to this fantasy zombie fixation the real and serious threat facing all freedom loving Americans:  Political Zombies (aka liberals/progressives/socialists, Dumbocrats, moonbats), and we have a potential disaster of significant proportions facing all of us.

The crazies get crazier! Miss World America organization is under fire after stripping 20 year old Kathy Zhu of her Miss Michigan World title for her support of President Donald Trump.

Apparently, she also tweeted about 'black on black crime' which even black people know is a real concern.

Watching the news, reading commentaries and seeing TV specials I find the question raised by the above title is getting a good bit of attention. A certain book author is also presenting interviews in TV specials looking into many topics he ascribes as reasons for America’s greatness. Others have commented on the successful moon visits as evidence showing our greatness. Great individual business magnates are pointed to. Our military contributions to the success of several wars is considered a strong support of our greatness, as is the fact that we became the wealthiest and freest nation ever conceived. Many people point to certain Presidents, such as Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln, as evidence of our claim to greatness. But some people, these days, are saying our Founding Fathers were just a group of greedy white men making themselves rich at the cost of slavery for some, and stolen land from others.

You don't have to fly to China to find real skeptics of freedom. Turns out, there are plenty right here at home. They pop their heads up every time the Trump administration does something meaningful on religious liberty or human rights -- which, thanks to this president's priorities, means we hear from them, a lot. Sticking up for freedom used to be America's calling card. Now that we have a State Department who takes that mission seriously, the country is finally starting to see who the real radicals are.

The Palmyra Massacre 1862

Union Brig. General John McNeil. Promoted November 29, 1862.
Union Brig. General John McNeil. Promoted November 29, 1862.

Following the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854—which allowed Kansas to allow or reject the institution of slavery by popular sovereignty—a destructive and sometimes bloody border war between Kansas and Missouri partisans raged for six years. The grizzly Manson-style murder of five settlers from Missouri in Pottawatomie, Kansas, in 1856, by the radical abolitionist, John Brown, helped fuel a growing flame of regional distrust. Brown was later hanged in 1859 after an unsuccessful attempt to capture the U.S. arsenal in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. He had planned to start a bloody slave insurrection. The fact that Brown was praised in many of the pulpits, newspapers, and political debates in New England greatly alarmed the South.  This added more fuel to the already smoldering issues of States Rights and enormous, unfair tariffs.
