Happy (Belated ) Birthday, Uncle Billy

Day late and a dollar short, as usual for me. Yesterday was Uncle Billy Sherman’s birthday. While I missed it, I suspect he would have approved of my post. Arguably, Uncle Billy is the man who won the Civil War, although he needed cover from Grant in the Army. But the people that admired his […]

The Anglo-Saxons are Awake!

Blaming the responsible   And yes, they are fundamentally unserious     Steve Hayward took a look at the beginning of the Berkely riots. Here is what he saw Berkeley still has rent control, but it hasn’t stopped Milo Yiannapoulos from living rent-free in the heads of the left. So in another triumph for his ironic […]

The Jacksonian Revolt

We’ve said here often that most Europeans simply misunderstand Americans. That is true, and it is also true that Britons do better than most at understanding us, which is reasonable, given that we sprang as a nation from Brittania’s brow. Walter Russel Mead undertook in Foreign Affairs to explain how Trump arose. I think he gets […]

How we Got Trump

Mollie Hemingway wrote yesterday in The Federalist about Saying People Can’t Say ‘This Is Why Trump Won’ Is Why Trump Won. See, one of the reasons tens of millions of Americans voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton was that they were sick of this type of media bullying. But you’re not supposed to point out […]

50 Years Ago

last Friday, Apollo 1 burned on the pad at Cape Kennedy, lost with it were  Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom as Command Pilot, Edward H. White II as Senior Pilot, and Donn F. Eisele as Pilot. I was a disaster that all Americans, and in fact, the world shared with us. And as the details became known, […]

Ulv Galiciefarer’s Tomb?

Well, we’re going to try not to deal with politics every day, because it’s early, but we will cover things that catch our attention, as always. But meantime… This sort of stuff always catches my attention, even if Danish is not Norwegian. From The History Blog. Danish archaeologist Bjarne Henning Nielsen, curator at the Vesthimmerlands […]

An Inaugural Reflection

The American inauguration is one of the great traditions of the American Republic, and of freedom itself. But why? First because since 1800, no matter what, the office of the President, which has come to be the most powerful job in the world, transfers completely peacefully from one incumbent to the next. Yes, there are often […]

A Bit of American Leadership

Sometimes that’s all it takes to change the world. Recently, Paul Bonecelli, wrote in The Federalist: President-elect Trump’s nomination of Rex Tillerson is clear evidence that Trump wants to change U.S. foreign policy and its posture in the world. For him, arguably no other choice would do but of an outsider with a record of setting […]

Gove on Trump

So Donald Trump gave an interview the other day, to Michael Gove and Kai Diekmann of Bild. Gove’s impressions were written up in the £ Times, it’s pretty interesting. So let’s look at some of it. During the race for the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump had an insult for every rival. Marco Rubio was “little Marco” […]

Letter from a Birmingham Jail

So today is Martin Luther King Day, one of the American holidays that are only for some of us, who get the day off – mostly government types. Well, kind of figures doesn’t it, and yet it doesn’t really bother many of us. In any case, Dr. King had some very important things to teach […]

von Richtofen Day

Well, we missed this one yesterday, but GreatSatan’sGirlfriend reminded us. Gott Mit Uns! 100 years ago today, Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen was awarded Imperial Deutschland’s highest military award – Pour le Mérite – often informally referred to as the “Blue Max.”  Pour le Mérite was awarded strictly as a recognition of extraordinary personal achievement, […]

Hope?

[Many of us here in America are very hopeful that Donald Trump will take a start on ‘Draining the Swamp’. I surely am. But I, like many of you, am wary, I have long since learned to not put my hope in princes, either in business or, perhaps especially, in politics. So we’ll see. Back […]

About this new Cabinet

A bit more about Trump’s cabinet, and why I too, think it very exceptional. From Stephen Hayward I tweeted out a few days ago that so far, President-elect Donald Trump’s senior level and cabinet picks are to the right of Ronald Reagan in 1981, and would find the approval of Calvin Coolidge. Naturally I wasn’t […]

Pearl Harbor Day, 75 Years on

We often talk of World War II, it was a major series of events in American and world history, as long as those survivors were in charge, things were better than ever, as they leave the stage, we are seeming to come face-to-face with the fact that they went too easy on us, and the […]

153 Years Ago, Yesterday

A sick man stood hatless for three hours on a platform in a field, in freezing Pennsylvania, listening to the greatest orator of the age. Then he made a few remarks, that he said few would note, or long remember. Well, those remarks are the greatest speech in American history. From that day forward, they […]

St. Crispan/Crispians Day

It’s St Crispin’s Day again, and that makes it a day to speak of the bravery of English and American armed forces, not that there is ever a bad day for that. St. Crispin’s Day is a pretty good encapsulation of our military histories, though; always brave, sometimes badly led and more often than not, victorious. […]

The Immortal Memory

The British Empire got its start as a Tudor Enterprise as Henry VIII established the Royal Navy and as men increasingly saw how England could challenge Spain on the sea. Britain was well placed for this as an island off the coast of Europe. And so St Vincent made the now famous remark: “I do not […]

Assandun

Another battle that we should take notice of, this one before the Battle of Hastings that made the phrase “1066 and all that” so famous. This one was exactly 1000 years ago today. Amazing thing is that for the participants it was likely just as important as Hastings. This is the battle where Cnut, King […]
