November 1

1952 - The U.S. exploded the world's first hydrogen bomb, at Eniwetok Atoll, in the in Pacific Ocean.

20 tons of TNT, and 1000 times larger than the atomic bombs dropped on Japan...Definitely a huge event in history.

We better all hope one of these monsters is never used in anger.

82 B.C. - The Battle of the Porta Collina (Colline Gate).

The Roman Republic was fighting for its life, and after an extended civil war, Sulla emerged from this battle, capturing Rome and assuming the title of dictator...A title which had a much different meaning at that time than during ours.

1755 - An earthquake in Lisbon, Portugal, killed 60,000 people (about 2/3 of the population).

A terrible event for sure, but this isn't what I find interesting about the headline.

In 1755 Lisbon had just under 100,000 people...250 years later this city has over 3,500,000 people. An increase of 3500%!!!

1861 - General George B. McClellan was promoted to General-in-Chief of the Union Armies:  U.S. Civil War.

McClellan was a favorite of the ‘Eastern elite,’ and had a great reputation as a military commander. Unfortunately, he didn’t have the testicular fortitude to put the worlds largest and best equipped army to use...And make no mistake, at this point in history this army was exactly what I stated.

McClellan spent a great amount of time planning battles instead of fighting them, and didn’t have the instincts it took to crush the Confederates when he had his chances in 1861-62...In other words McClellan was the Civil War's version of post-El Alamein Monty in WWII.

1871 - Gustav Mahler wrote he had become a vegetarian, saying he thought it would regenerate the human race if everybody stopped eating meat.

I wish people like this would stop eating all together.

1918 - The Habsburg monarchy of Austria-Hungary was dissolved.

This kingdom was also known as the Dual Monarchy or the K.U.K. Monarchy = 'Kaiserlich und Königlich.' German for 'Imperial and Royal.'

The dissolution of Austria-Hungary was long overdue, and good for both Austria and Hungary.

1922 - Following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Turkey became a republic.

The land of modern-day Turkey has always been one of immense importance, and continues to be...It's too bad in its current form it's much closer to its Ottoman than its Byzantine roots.

1936 - In a speech in Milan, Italy, Benito Mussolini described the alliance between his country and Nazi Germany as an "axis" running between Rome and Berlin.

The Paperboy almost had it right...He should have said 'asses' instead of axis.

1990 - President GHW Bush accused Iraqi forces of engaging in "barbarism" and "brutality," adding "I don't believe that Adolf Hitler ever participated in anything of that nature."

GHW Bush is a good man, but this was an absolutely ignorant comment.

There are few people in the history of the world who's actions can be compared to the barbarism and brutality of Hitler...The Iraqis may have been his peers, though not in quantity, but they were in no way his superior when it comes to either barbarism or brutality.

1993 - The Maastricht Treaty was enacted, establishing the European Union.

What a colossal joke!!!

Since the fall of Rome, Europeans have been hoping for a united Europe...And since this same time have failed.

The continent is made up of so many dissimilar people, and the history of warfare among them has been awesome. Brutally awesome.

It will never happen, And proof of the failure is the fact it is 2016 and there is no European constitution, because they can't work one out to everyone's satisfaction...Heck, even the common currency is hanging on for its life.

October 31

1517 - Martin Luther posted the '95 Theses' on the door of the Wittenberg Palace Church, marking the start of the Protestant Reformation in Germany.

The proper name for the '95 Theses' is 'The Disputation of Doctor Martin Luther on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences.'

Luther was a Catholic monk, and grew tired of the bastardizations of the Christian faith...Even a strict Catholic would have difficulty denying Luther's claims, because the Church had grown quite fat and abusive.

It's important to note Luther didn't set out to destroy the Catholic Church or to found his own version of Christianity...Instead he wanted to reform the existing church - to cleanse it of abuses of power and un-holiness.

This didn't work out because the Church was far too big for anyone to make demands on, and the Church had Holy Roman Emperor Charles V to lean on for military support...But, both the Papacy and Charles made a huge mistake: They allowed Luther to live. Had they killed him immediately, the Reformation would have likely died with him.

Instead, Luther found refuge in the German states and the Reformation took root - a pivot in European history the likes of which hadn't happened since the fall of Rome.

475 - Romulus Augustulus, last Western Roman Emperor, was elevated to the throne.

What a pathetic figure. He didn’t last long, though, and the Empire was in its last months.

It is interesting to look at the name of this last emperor and its irony: Romulus was the legendary founder of Rome, and Augustus the founder of the Roman Empire...Romulus Augustus proved to be much less than either.

1803 - The USS Philadelphia grounded off Tripoli and was captured by the Barbary pirates.

This event sparked the Barbary Wars, which were the U.S.'s first as an independent nation...It's not surprising it was Muslim pirates who were our first enemy. Just as they are today.

1846 - The Donner party, unable to cross the Donner Pass, began constructing a winter camp.

It was a long Winter...For some.

1914 - The Battle of the Vistula River ended.  Russian troops pushed the Germans back to their original positions:  WWI.

This battle is also known as the Battle of Warsaw.

It was one of the first WWI battles on the Eastern Front, and the Russians were able to overwhelm the Germans due to superior numbers...This was the case for all of 1914 and much of 1915, but it didn't last past that point. After 1915 the Russians found themselves on the opposite end of most of these battles.

1942 - One of the great wartime radio shows premiered, as CBS debuted 'Thanks to the Yanks.' The show, starring Bob Hawk, became one of the most popular of the wartime programs.

This was back in the day when the media and Hollywood were pro-American...Oh how things have changed.

1961 - The body of Joseph Stalin was removed from public display (in Stalin's Tomb). The longtime dictator of the former Soviet Union was reburied in a simple grave, beginning the USSR's 'de-Stalinization policy.'

Uncle Joe is one of the greatest butchers in the history of the world, causing death and suffering for millions of his enemies and his own countrymen...They should have drawn and quartered his dead corpse, then burned the remains in the hope of every part of his existence going straight to Hell.

1968 - President Lyndon Johnson ordered a halt to all U.S. bombing in North Vietnam, saying he hoped for fruitful peace negotiations.

Peace never comes through weakness...He should have bombed them into submission and allowed the infantry to force Ho Chi Mihn to surrender.

1998 - President Bill Clinton signed the 'Iraq Liberation Act' which stated it was "... the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime."

Getting rid of Saddam was the official policy of the U.S.

"Today I am signing into law H.R. 4655, the 'Iraq Liberation Act of 1998.' This Act makes clear that it is the sense of the Congress that the United States should support those elements of the Iraqi opposition that advocate a very different future for Iraq than the bitter reality of internal repression and external aggression that the current regime in Baghdad now offers." - President Bill Clinton

So, why didn't Clinton follow through with this official U.S. government policy instead of leaving it to his successor to handle?

It's important to point this out to every fool who questions why Bush took out Hussein. He followed the official policy of the United States, which was signed by Bill Clinton...Clinton wouldn't, Bush did.

October 30

1961 - The Soviet Union tested a hydrogen bomb - with an estimated force of 58-megatons.

The Soviets called this monster the 'Tsar Bomba.'  And bomba it was - the largest man-made explosive device ever!

Which surely is enough to be the greatest event on this day.

1270 - The Seventh Crusade ended with the Treaty of Barbary.

This ended another tactical failure by the Crusaders, who never could have won the Crusades, because the logistics of ruling the region were impossible for the West.

It's important for people to understand the Crusades were a strategic victory, however...Even though the result was unintentional.

Islam swept through Southwest Asia, North Africa, parts of Eastern Europe, and Spain...The Crusades played a large role in keeping the Muslim Horde from overrunning all of Europe.

If Islam didn't have to fight the Crusaders in the Middle East, it's likely they would have invaded all of Europe, and at least possible they could have succeeded...This is important to keep in mind with the current Islamists. We will either fight them in their homeland or ours.

Also, the Crusaders brought much information and knowledge back from the Middle East; information lost after the fall of Rome; information which helped bring and end to the Dark/Middle Ages in Europe - leading to the Renaissance.
1650 - In a court case, the members of the Society of Friends were first called Quakers because of the admonition of their founder George Fox to "quake and tremble at the word of God."

I'm not a religio, but I love this kind of stuff.
1918 - Turkey signed an armistice with the Allies, agreeing to end hostilities at noon October 31:  WWI.

WWI was winding down, but the world woke up to the reality of the Hell created in the previous four years.

Europe was a mess, and the Middle East was about to be transformed...For the better part of the previous 400-years the Islamic World had been ruled by the Ottoman Turks, which was about to change.

The Ottoman Empire was dissolved, and the peace which ended the war proved to be a '
Peace to End All Peace.' I highly recommend you read this book.
1938 - Millions of Americans were panicked by the radio broadcast of 'The War of the Worlds,' a book by H.G. Wells dramatized by Orson Welles.

This sounds illogical, but the country was on pins and needles...Asia was at war, Europe was about to explode, the Great Depression was in it's ninth year, and the Red Scare was ever present. Try to imagine if these factors were all present in our time.

Actually, it isn't that hard, especially considering the some of those factors are more or less present now.
1945 - The U.S. announced the end of shoe rationing:  WWII.

Rationing during wartime? How un-American!

I'm just practicing for my ACLU registration test...SOB's.

1988 - Responding to Republican attempts to pin the term "Liberal" on him, Democrat Michael Dukakis declared on the campaign trail, "Yes, I am a Liberal, in the tradition of Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and John Kennedy."

What a joke!! These three Democrat presidents would be considered Conservatives by today’s standards. And it’s not even close.

Dukakis (and every Democrat nominee after Kennedy) should properly call themselves “Liberals in the tradition of Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter”...I’m pretty sure they’ll keep avoiding this truth though.

1990 - The Iraqi News Agency quoted Saddam Hussein, saying Iraq was making final preparations for war, and that he expected an attack by the United States and its allies within days.

GHW Bush should have taken care of Hussein when he had the chance...And Clinton should have as well.

October 29 (A Double)

539 B.C. - Persian King Cyrus the Great conquered Babylon.

The Persians had long been kicking at the gates of Mesopotamia, but it wasn't until Cyrus came along that they had the leadership it took to overwhelm the Assyrians (Babylonians)...Cyrus proved to be much more than an average leader, and eventually conquered most of the area of the modern-day Middle East. Which is why he was able to found the world's first true empire, was known as the King of Kings, and later as 'the Great.'

1929 - Black Tuesday.

The day the Great Depression began, with the massive trading of 13,000,000 shares on the N.Y. Stock Exchange.

There were many reasons for the Depression, which was a global phenomenon not an American one...Most important was the destabilization of the world economy after WWI, and the excessive reparations put on German with the Treaty of Versailles.

Unfortunately, this state of economic destabilization was one of the many factors leading to WWII.

1940 - U.S. Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson drew the first number (158) in America's first peacetime military draft:  WWII.

This was a year before the Japanese invaded Pearl Harbor...Thankfully the U.S. military was ramping up.

FDR should have begun this process in 1939, and entered the war in 1940, but didn't have the courage or conviction to do what was right, because it would have been unpopular...In other words, FDR was a politician not a statesman.  That said, he did prove to be a great war president once he was dragged into it.

1942 - Nazis murdered 16,000 Jews in Pinsk, Soviet Union:  WWII.

Another big day for the 'Master Race.'

1966 - The National Organization for Women (NOW) was founded.

This name is so deceiving...It should be NOMLMHW: National Organization for Marxist Lesbian Man Hating Women. Anything less is a huge lie.

1997 - Iraq barred Americans from the U.N. disarmament effort in Iraq. A move which outraged chief weapons inspector Richard Butler and prompted him to suspend inspections.

It’s a good thing the Clinton Administration was tough on Saddam. Riiiiiiiight...Instead he left the problem for his successor.

312 - The Battle of the Milvian Bridge: Roman civil war.

1. Constantine the Great became the undisputed master of the Roman Empire by defeating Maxentius in this battle, ending the civil war.

2. This battle also marks the beginning of the Christian Era in Europe.

During this battle Constantine's army wore the Christian Cross after Constantine trusted a vision he had seen of the Cross, inscribed with the words "In this sign conquer"...As a result, Constantine converted to Christianity after emerging victorious in the battle, and became the first Roman emperor to embrace the Christian faith.

This act of faith (regardless of his reasoning) is every bit as important as Moses’ at the ‘burning bush’ (in real terms not religious ones), because it changed Rome, which changed the Western World, because Rome was the axis upon which the West revolved and evolved from.

1886 - The Statue of Liberty, a gift from the people of France, was dedicated in New York Harbor by President Cleveland.

'Gift from the people of France' my ass…This is one of the great myths in American history, but it is definitely a myth.

The Statue was a gift from a few financiers who graciously gave it to the U.S. in the name of the French people...The French have never been our friends, even though they have often been our 'ally.'

In the 18th-19th Centuries they were often on 'our side,' but only did so to spite the Brits...In the 20th Century they were on 'our side' in WWI and WWII because they needed our help to save them from the Germans.

1919 - The Prohibition Enforcement Act (also known as the Volstead Act) became law. This act enforced the 18th Amendment to the Constitution - the prohibition of alcohol manufacture, sale and consumption.

Someday we’ll face a similar attack on personal freedom when the health-nuts try to ban cigarettes or food...While at the same time they fight to allow people to smoke pot, and kill fetuses. I just don’t get the logic.

1922 - Italian Blackshirt Fascists began a march on Rome which ended two days later with the formation of a government led by Benito Mussolini.

The Italians have always reached out for a strongman, and this they found in the 'Paperboy.'  Unfortunately, they were led down the road to Hell, and it took the destruction of much of Italy to escape the tyranny they so dearly wanted.

But at least Il Duce got the ‘trains to run on time.’

1940 - President Franklin Roosevelt complained "Republicans...after opposing rearmament for years, are now protesting that the United States is too weak":  WWII.

It’s interesting to note at this time in history the Republicans were the Chickens and the Democrats the Hawks...And his comment could perfectly be flipped today.

Which is why people shouldn’t get tied to political parties, but to political ideals...When it comes to national defense, FDR Democrats should be modern-day Republicans, as should JFK Democrats.

1940 - Italy invaded Greece:  WWII.

Per normal, the Italians bungled this invasion, and required German help to get out of the mess.

Hitler was very fond of Mussolini, but he had to regret getting in bed with such incompetence…The Brits (the only ones fighting at this time) were happy, though, because Germany diverted many forces to Greece which could have been used elsewhere.

Most important, Germany having to save the Italians in Greece delayed the invasion of Russia, which pushed the calendar closer to winter...A fact which ultimately cost them the war.

1959 - Turkey and the United States signed an agreement for the deployment of fifteen nuclear-tipped Jupiter missiles in Turkey.

Most Americans don’t realize it, but Turkey is a NATO ally...Most also don’t know it, but the decision to put these missiles in Turkey was the Soviet’s excuse for trying to put theirs in Cuba.

1962 - The Cuban Missile Crisis effectively ended when Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev announced its missiles would be dismantled and returned to the U.S.S.R. President Kennedy immediately replied that the U.S. would lift its blockade of Cuba.

The world wondered who would blink first, and it was Nikki...The world was lucky, too, because I’m pretty sure Kennedy was (rightly) going to the wall on this matter.

1988 - In London, the High Court ruled former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet was immune from prosecution in British courts. The House of Lords later overturned the decision, saying Pinochet's arrest could stand.

Pinochet was a brutal dictator, and should have been sent back to Chile for a good ol' fashioned hangin.’

October 27 (A Slow Day)

1787 - The first of the 'Federalist Papers,' a series of 85 essays calling for ratification of the United States Constitution, was published in a New York newspaper.

These essays were written by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay, under the pseudonym 'Publius,' in honor of Publius Valerius Publicola (one of the founders of the Roman Republic in 509 B.C.).

These three men were some of the giants of their time - or any time - and fought hard for the passage of the U.S. Constitution, because they recognized the dangers the young (dis)United States faced if they did not unite in a federated system, under a republican (small 'r') form of government.

The threat of the 13 ‘states’ going to war with each other - economically and militarily - was a real problem, but it was the threat of invasion by the various European powers against a separate group of states which worried the Federalists more than anything.

Luckily, the Federalists won out, and the Constitution was passed. Otherwise there may not be a U.S.-as-we-know-it, and possibly wouldn’t be a U.S. at all.

1553 - Michael Servetus, who discovered the pulmonary circulation of blood, was burnt for heresy in Switzerland.

The price of genius has often been great...Servetus wasn’t the first to pay with his life for heretical discoveries, nor the last.

Here’s how John Calvin justified the execution:

"A thief only deprived one of worldly goods. A murderer only threatened a mortal life. A heretic threatened the immortal soul. A responsible government, a Christian government had no alternative but to silence the heretic forever by executing him, thus protecting the community from the infinite danger he represented."

1962 - Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev sent a note to President Kennedy offering to withdraw his missiles from Cuba if the U.S. closed its bases in Turkey. The offer was rejected and the Cuban Missile Crisis continued.

I love Kennedy’s defiance and unwillingness to deal with the Soviet Hell State. He refused to blink and forced Nikki to stand down. Exactly what should be done with every rogue state threatening the U.S...And if we need to swing the 'big stick' so be it. I'm quite certain JFK was ready and willing to swing it like a mother.

Modern-day Democrats would cringe at such a decision, but this is one of the many differences between John Kennedy and 21st Century Democrats...It'll be nice when 'Kennedy Democrats' and 'FDR Democrats' wake up to this reality. Sadly, I'm afraid FDR Democrats will die before they do.

33 - The traditional date for the death of St. Stephen, first martyr of the Christian Church.

I thought John the Baptist was the 'first martyr? I guess he would be considered before the Church, though.

1774 - The first Continental Congress, which protested British measures and called for civil disobedience, concluded in Philadelphia.

The Colonists didn’t vote to split from Britain, but this congress set the stage for the Colonists building up the nerve to do so...Never forget, the Brits were the superpower of the world, and taking them on was a dangerous measure - thought by most to be impossible.

1881 - The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral took place in Tombstone, Arizona, as Wyatt Earp, his two brothers and Doc Holliday confronted Ike Clanton's gang. Three members of Clanton's gang were killed; Earp's brothers were wounded.

Stories like this one make for good folklore, but as far as having real historical value, I don't think so.

1906 - Workers in St. Petersburg set up the first Russian 'soviet,' or council.

Petersburg was the home of the 1905 Revolution, which was squashed by the Czarists. Even though it was a failure, it was a breeding ground for Russian communism, however...This 'soviet' was an outgrowth of the 1905 Revolution, and a strong point for the Communists in the 1917 Revolution.

Prior to 1905 almost all communist activity took place in nothing more than the minds of the movement's intellectuals - or in safer lands in Western Europe...This revolution was spontaneous, had little to no involvement from the communist, and was an outpouring of anger against the Czar.

1920 - The Lord Mayor of Cork, Ireland, Terence McSwiney, died after a two-and-one-half-month hunger strike in a British prison cell, demanding independence for Ireland.

If the Irish truly want independence from the Brits they must either force the Brits to let them go or remain part of the United Kingdom...Yes, that means they must go Palestinian, or not.

If they can’t earn their freedom, they don’t deserve it...I know many will be shocked by this comment, but I believe in the 'right of conquest.' The Irish don't deserve their own land/nation anymore than the American Indians, Sumerians, Hittites, etc., did. If they want it, they must reconquer it.

1956 - The International Atomic Energy Agency was established.

What a waste of perfectly good American money...And make no mistake the U.N. runs on the back of the American taxpayer.

Every major country who wants to have nukes has them, or will have them...And there are plenty of minor countries who will eventually have them, because they recognize the geopolitical clout it gives them.

So, what exactly is the IAEA doing?? Not much. It's just another hand in the world’s largest Circle Jerk Group.

1988 - French pharmaceutical company, Roussel Uclaf, announced it would halt worldwide distribution of RU-486, a pill to induce abortions, because of "an outcry of opinion at home and abroad." The French government ordered the company to reverse itself two days later.

Re-read that. The pharma company was going to stop making the product, but France ordered them to continue!!! Imagine if the American government ordered a company to continue doing this?

I take that back; similar things are happening - through forced measures in ObamaCare.

1999 - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a study which said the number of Americans considered obese soared from about one in eight in 1991 to nearly one in five in 1998.

They can get whatever percent they want, depending on how they want to skew the data. They can change the data statistics and parameters to make 100% of America obese...Or they can play with the stats to make 100% of America underweight.

Statistics are interesting, but they can be toyed with to come to just about any conclusion the statistician desires...Which is exactly what they do - depending on what their goal for that particular set of statistics is.

October 25 (A Double)

1415 – The Battle of Agincourt.

This is one of the most decisive battles of the Hundred Years War - a complete English route of the French.

The French greatly outnumbered the English (12,000-30,000 French, 5,000-9,000 English), but the English had the dominant weapon of the time: The longbow...Amazingly, the English suffered around 500 casualties compared to over 5,000 for the French.

From this point till the Battle of Orleans (1428-29) England dominated France, but were unable to force a conclusion to the war...It took a woman (Joan of Arc) to turn the tide in the favor of the French and bring an end to this seemingly endless war.

1556 - Charles V abdicated as Holy Roman Emperor.

Charles’ empire was one of the largest in history (Holy Roman Empire, Spain and most of South America, much of Italy, the Netherlands, etc.)...It was also one of the most tumultuous in history, as well, which is why he resigned at such a young age (56).

His abdication saw the split of the Habsburg lands between the Austrian and Spanish branches, and severed the Netherlands from the German lands, giving it to Spain...This was the final reward for Spanish loyalty, and final slap for the troubles the Germans caused him.

But , this switch was bad for both Austria and Spain.

Spain spent the better part of the next century unsuccessfully fighting to keep the Low Countries.

The Austrians and Holy Roman Empire lost the most important part of its economy (trade, banks, ports, etc), and was weakened militarily by not having the Dutch Navy at it's disposal...All of which more or less ruined it's influence in the West, and limited it to Central and Eastern Europe.

As a result the Dutch were the only winners in Charles' decision, because there was no way the Spanish could ultimately control the Netherlands as effectively as the Germans could (not with France between them, and England supporting them), which eventually resulted in Dutch independence.

2137 B.C. - Ho and Hsi, Chinese royal astronomers, were beheaded after failing to accurately predict an eclipse of the sun, which caused panic in the streets of China.

How sad...The Chinese should have known it wasn’t the astronomers fault, and there was no way Bush could have gotten FEMA out fast enough to stop the 'panic in the streets.'

1854 - The 'Charge of the Light Brigade': Crimean War.

Britain's Lord Cardigan led a cavalry attack against the Russians at Balaclava, one of the most heroic episodes in British military history.

'Heroic' and stupid...670 British cavalrymen attacked a heavily fortified Russian position and were wiped out. They met no objective, except death - and mythological status.

1917 (November 7 on the new-style calendar) - In Russia, the Bolsheviks, led by Vladimir Lenin, seized power.

This event will be detailed in November, but is noted here to help explain why this part of the Revolution is often referred to as the 'November Revolution' as well as the 'October Revolution.'

Changes in calendar systems always cause problems with dating, but it is the event, not the date which is important...Anyone who tells you otherwise is a fool.

1923 - The Teapot Dome scandal came to public attention when Senator Thomas J. Walsh of Montana, revealed the findings of the past 18-months of investigation. His case resulted in the conviction of Harry F. Sinclair of Mammoth Oil, and later Secretary of the Interior Albert B. Fall, the first cabinet member in American history to go to jail. The scandal, named for the Teapot Dome oil reserves in Wyoming, involved Fall secretly leasing naval oil reserve lands to private companies.

This was a terrible scandal in its day, but would be nothing compared to the shenanigans going on in both parties today.

1932 - Mussolini promised to remain dictator of Italy for 30-years.

He didn’t even make it half way...At least he didn’t promise a '1000 year Reich' like his lunatic pal Adolph.

1994 - Susan Smith reported to police that her two young boys had been taken in a carjacking. Nine days later, she confessed she rolled the car into a lake, drowning the children.

This sick bitch committed the ultimate crime: She killed her children!!! And she won’t be executed!! Instead she was given a life sentence, with a shot at parole in 2025.

I guess performing 'post-term abortions' isn’t a crime worthy of the death penalty...Which is only logical since we allow 'pre-term abortions.'

It makes me sick that this woman is still alive, and we should hope 'Shanks' becomes her cell-mate sometime between now and 2025.
