The embattled Star-Spangled Banner.
The embattled Star-Spangled Banner.

We are an embattled nation. Starting in January, the Democrats will have control of the U.S. House of Representatives with approximately 234 seats to 200 for the Republicans. One House race is still too close to call. A majority is 218. This should pose no problem for absolute Democrat dominance, since they have been voting with near 100 percent unanimity to block all of President Trump’s agenda and 2016 election mandate. The House Republicans, now in the minority, will have little chance of initiating or passing legislation supporting the Trump agenda or any genuinely conservative agenda.

Salem Village 1692

Memorial to Rebecca Nurse, a devout Christian woman of 71 years, hanged on July 19, 1692, in Salem, Massachusetts.
Memorial to Rebecca Nurse, a devout Christian woman of 71 years, hanged on July 19, 1692, in Salem, Massachusetts.

In March 1692, Rev. Samuel Parris wrote in the Salem Village church record book that “The Devil hath been raised amongst us, & his Rage is vehement and terrible, & when he shall be silenced the Lord only knows.” The strange events and widespread witch hysteria that first occurred in the Rev. Parris’s own Salem Village home had spread to Salem Town, Andover (now North Andover), Beverly, Topsfield, and many other towns by the fall of 1692. Over 150 people were arrested, examined, and sent to prison. Of these, fourteen women and five men were hanged in Salem Town for the felony of witchcraft. One man, Giles Corey, was crushed to death under heavy stones for refusing to enter a plea. Another five died of insufferable conditions in prison awaiting trial and sentencing.

Morgan’s Great Raid and Camp Douglas’s 80 Acres

My great-great grandfather, Theodoric (Teddie) Edward Scruggs was born in 1806 in upstate South Carolina. He moved his family to Blount County in northern Alabama sometime after his first wife died in 1854. He remarried there and had a total of 17 children by the two wives. Four of his sons by his first wife, Nancy Stone, served in the Confederate Army. My great grandfather, John Berry Scruggs, and his brother James, enlisted in John Hunt Morgan’s 2nd Kentucky Cavalry, CSA, in May 1862 in Blountsville, Alabama. Thomas and Sterling were already serving in the 19th and 26th Alabama infantry regiments respectively. The 26th Alabama was later merged into the 26/50th Alabama because the casualties in those two regiments had been so high. The 19th and the 26/50th Alabama were in the same brigade. All three regiments saw considerable combat, but all four brothers survived the war.

A Humanitarian Crisis Made in Washington

POW Andersonville 4024

The truth about the tragedy of Andersonville is much different from the propaganda version that prevailed after the Civil War and still flourishes in politically correct media.    

Near the tiny village of Andersonville, Georgia, are 13,714 graves, a testament to one of the greatest tragedies of the Civil War and of American history. In fourteen months of 1864 and 1865, nearly 13,000 Union prisoners of war died there of malnutrition, disease, and despair. Union propagandists then and still today have branded it an atrocity. But what is the truth?

October and Other Election Surprises

The thirty days before an election are the season of political dirty tricks. It is frequently referred to as the “October surprise” and is generally launched by desperate candidates or campaign consultants with moral compasses aligned to power rather than ethical conduct and the public good.   It is often a Halloween basket filled with misleading or outright false statements and statistics; character defamation; economic, social, and historical ignorance; and the usual litanies and virtue-signaling of victimhood politics   Delivering this blizzard of falsehoods and distortions during the last weeks or even the last few days before an election will usually prevent opponents from responding before most of the damage is done.
