THIS DAY IN HISTORY

July 14

1789 - The French Revolution began with the Storming of the Bastille.

The French watched the American Revolution, and finally had the balls to attempt their own...Unfortunately they got it wrong, and the Revolution turned into a bloodbath and dictatorship, which drove the Continent into a 25-year period of constant warfare.

That said, it did produce a genius in the form of Napoleon Bonaparte...Unfortunately, again, this genius was the cause of much of the hell on earth created by the French Revolution.


1798 - The U.S. Congress passed the Sedition Act, making it a federal crime to publish false, scandalous or malicious writing about the United States government.

For some reason the current media was pretty good about upholding this standard during the Obama years...I wonder why.


I wonder why this wasn't true prior to or after Obama?  Hmmm?

Oh, I forgot.  Obama was 'their guy', so the perpetrators of 'Fake News' left him alone...Just as they would have if Hillary had won.

"Mainstream American news is all fake, because the major new outlets are so consistently biased towards the Left, that whether any given story they report is factual or not, their overall reportage is essentially Leftist propaganda...Now, it's not that these journalists are liars - exactly - it's that their bias skews their reporting in very specific ways." – Andrew Klavan

1850 - The first ice made by refrigeration was unveiled.

I’m sure this seems like a small event to many, but those of us living in the American Southwest appreciate it greatly.


1867 - Alfred Nobel demonstrated dynamite.

One of the ironies of history:  Nobel creating one of man's greatest killing tools, then created a 'peace prize' with his massive fortune.


1917 - Three months after declaring war, the first American casualty of World War I was sustained at Arras, France.

The first of many...Unfortunately the Euro’s ended the war before its natural conclusion, which led to a 20-year ‘phony peace’ followed by WWII.


1933 - Germany began mandatory sterilization of people with hereditary illness and banned all political parties except the Nazi Party.

Another huge day in the '12-Year Reich.'


1958 - A military coup overthrew the monarchy in Iraq, killing King Faisal II. General Abdul Karim Kassem became Iraq's leader.

Normally this event would be just another in the history of Turd World coups, but it is significant because it was where Saddam Hussein first came to note.


1994 - Scores of Hutu refugees from Rwanda's civil war flooded across the border into Zaire, swamping relief organizations.

Where was President Clinton and all the Liberal whiners while this was happening?

Well, we all know why Clinton wasn’t paying attention (too many BlewClinky’s), but how about the rest of the 'do-gooders' at the U.N., Europe, etc...Ahhh, no one cares about Africa.


1999 - Race-based school-busing in Boston ended.

I can’t believe the land of Fat Teddy Kennedy and Johnny Heinz-Kerry continued such racist practices almost to the very end of the 20th Century.

I’m sure most blacks don’t know this, because the North has managed to permanently pin the ‘racist tag’ on the South while shielding itself against such claims...PATHETIC!!!!
