Always keep in mind that there is at least one man who considers Trump to be his personal soldier. His name is Vladimir Putin and he will always thank Trump for handing him Syria and trying so hard to hand over Ukraine.

Armistice Day

vonMesser at 'Nox & Friends - 22 hours ago
As a historian (with a bit of bias) I firmly believe that the Great War, also called The World War, and later renamed The First World War, was possibly the worst thing to happen to the world. In 1870 France declared war on Pru├čia, and by January of 1871 what was deemed to be the most powerful army in the world had been totally defeated, Emperor Napoleon III had been captured, and Germany was united for the first time in history, and declared herself an empire on January 19, 1871 in the Palace of Versailles. The French immediately began plotting … Continue reading →

How Gambling Built Baseball – and Then Almost Destroyed It

Rebecca Edwards at The National Interest - 22 hours ago
*Rebecca Edwards* *History, Americas* [image: Reuters] In baseball’s infancy, the sport was thought of as a boy’s game. But over the course of the 19th century, gambling deepened adult interest and investment in the sport, attracting cohorts of older fans. Imagine if, after watching the thrilling victory of the Chicago Cubs in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series over the Cleveland Indians – a game in which the Cubs won their first championship in over a century – you learned that the Indians had collaborated with gamblers to intentionally throw the series. Would you trust the game, i... more »

Sonderland testifies that there was no quid pro quo

The Democrats are trying to portray Ambassador Gordon Sondland's testimony as supporting the Democrats claim of a quid pro quo. Trouble is that it doesn't.

Obama refuses military aid to Ukraine Democrats are happy; Trump delays aid Democrats say it's a crime

Scott Johnson over at PowerLineBlog transcribed this great point from Karl Rove: I love, I love the fact that the Democrats are now decrying the president’s decision not to move aid, lethal aid, rapidly to Ukraine. After all, the previous administration, a Democratic administration, did *nothing* to send lethal aid to Ukraine — and the non-lethal aid they refused to fly into Ukraine on C-130s because they didn’t want a U.S. “military” presence in Ukraine. So they dropped [it] off in Poland and citizens had to take that non-lethal aid and put it in the back of their little vehicles a... more »

The rise of national conservative VOX in Spain sees the BBC going into overdrive with the term "far-right" to describe them, whereas the fall of leftist Bolivian president Evo Morales over electoral fraud allegations sees the BBC curiously avoiding terms like 'socialist', 'left-wing' or 'far-left' to describe him.
