THIS DAY IN HISTORY

July 2

1644 - The Battle of Marston Moor: Parliamentary forces defeated the Royalists.

This is one of the most important and decisive battles of the English Civil War, and by winning the battle the Parliamentarians assumed control of the northern portion of England.

It was also the first battle where Oliver Cromwell showed himself as a brilliant commander, which eventually proved fatal for the Crown and Parliament.


1633 - The Catholic Church sentenced Galileo to house arrest for the rest of his life for writing the Earth was not the center of the universe.

Galileo was one of many geniuses squashed by the Church - who believed the known science of the time was all that would ever be known.


In other words, the Church of this time was similar to the 'Climate Change' fanatics of our time, who claim they are the final judges on the matter...And just like, Galileo, those in our time who don't toe-the-line are persecuted by those who claim to be the final arbiters of knowledge.

That said, Galileo was eventually released, after rescinding his views, but was never the same...Which was the Church's goal.  Which is the goal of the 'Climate Changers' - silencing all dissent!

1776 - The Continental Congress passed a resolution saying "these United Colonies are, and of right, ought to be, Free and Independent States."

The Continentals were performing an act of treason against the British crown, and within two days committed the highest act of treason by declaring independence...It should also be noted they declared the 'states' to be free and independent - not part of a union to be ruled by a central government.

1777 - Vermont became the first American colony to abolish slavery:  American Revolutionary War.

Vermonters should be proud of this fact...It's unfortunate every colony didn't follow suit, but isn't unexpected.


1926 - The United States Army Air Corps was created.

I hope you know the Air Force hasn't always been an independent branch of the U.S. Military, but was and auxiliary branch of the Army...Similar to the Marines being part of the Navy.


1964 - President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act into law.

Acts which were long overdue...Slavery and its aftermath are definitely sore spots in the history of this great nation.

Thankfully, a few brave Republicans had the stomach and decency to break the backs of the DEMOCRAT FILIBUSTER...Who knows if blacks would have ever gotten legitimate freedom if the Senator Byrd's of the Democrat Party had been allowed to continue on their destructive path.


1976 – Gregg v. Georgia: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled the death penalty was not inherently cruel or unusual.

Strangely, in 1972 they ruled the death penalty was unconstitutional, cruel and unusual.


1998 - Apologizing to viewers and Vietnam veterans for "serious faults" in its reporting, CNN retracted a story alleging U.S. commandos used nerve gas to kill American defectors during the war.

CNN IS A BUNCH OF LYING SOB's!!!!! And so are its pals at all the 'Alphabet Networks.'

How can they get away with telling out and out lies?  Lies which have now come to be defined by exactly what it is:  FAKE NEWS!!
