Ninety-six years ago this month — and 80 years before 9/11 — a terror attack took place in America’s heartland. Unlike 9/11, the dates May 30-June 1, 1921 are not marked by a national remembrance. No bells are tolled for the victims, and there is no moment of silence.
Proponents of anthropogenic global warming (AGW; the theory that man-made greenhouse gases are causing climate change) are quick to cite extreme weather events as signs that the climate is changing. In the 14th century, an extreme weather event was seen as a sign from God and it ended a way.

Not many people know about FDR’s Executive Order 6814, signed on August 9, 1934, that “required all persons to deliver [their silver] to the U.S. government.” Like the gold confiscation – which was sold to Americans as a way to stimulate the economy but was instead a scheme to allow the Federal Reserve to print more money – the silver confiscation allowed the Fed to print more money (this time coins.)

The Mexican-American war had many far-reaching consequences beyond the acquisition of territory from Mexico. The anti-slavery faction sought to prohibit slavery in any territory won during the war, and the dispute over the expansion of slavery in new territories kept the Northern and Southern states at each other up to the Southern secession. It also provided a training ground for many men who would distinguish themselves in the war of Northern Aggression.
Harriet Tubman’s image will soon grace the front of the $20 bill. Is she a fitting replacement for President Andrew Jackson? Many think so. But had she not been to ill to participate in one of her planned activities, history would view her much differently.
