Blacks might have had a much different outcome had they been allowed to stay on the land they were given before a Democrat, President Andrew Johnson, took it away from them. Sharecropping emerged as a compromise because of him and that decision.
Again, thank a Democrat for the continued oppression of blacks.
Ummmm, no. That's not how it really happened but thanks for playing.

He described al-Qaeda as having been “decimated,”“on the path to defeat” or some other variation at least 32 times since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, according to White House transcripts.

But he wouldn't try and mislead you, would he?

You keep coming back for more. So here it is.

Andrew Johnson became president following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Johnson issued a proclamation of pardon and amnesty to citizens in the South who would take an oath of allegiance.

As part of the pardon process, lands confiscated during the war would be returned to white landowners. So while the Radical Republicans had fully intended for there to be a massive redistribution of land from former slave owners to former slaves under Reconstruction, Johnson's policy effectively thwarted that.

It has been estimated to approximately 40,000 former slaves received grants of land under Sherman's order. But the land was taken away from them.

Denied the opportunity to own their own small farms, most former slaves were forced to live under the system of sharecropping.

Life as a sharecropper generally meant living in poverty. And sharecropping would have been a bitter disappointment to people who once believed they could become independent farmers.

Wonder if a commentator will ask Hillary why she made up a story about landing under fire in enemy territory again like in 2008.
Her embarrassment in having to admit her embarrassment was palpable.
This time, she'll be asked why four dead Americans didn't make any difference to her.
Hillary won't be the candidate.
She makes more on books and speeches

Decimated does not mean destroyed, the word is overused generally.

An intercepted electronic communication in which two of al Qaeda’s top world leaders agreed they “wanted to do something big” this past Sunday is what caused the U.S. government to shut nearly two dozen diplomatic posts around the world, according to intelligence sources.

Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s successor as the head of al Qaeda, and Nasir al-Wahishi, leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, wanted to time a significant attack to a Muslim holiday known as Laylat al-Qadr, the 27th night of Ramadan and the day the Koran was revealed to Mohammed. This year the holiday, also known as the “Night of Destiny" or the "Night of Power,” fell on the weekend of August 3 and 4.

They had God out of their 'platform ...
Watch the vote to put it back in !!!
~-~

Tonight, the Democratic National Committee suspended the rules of the convention and inserted language regarding God and the State of Israel back to its platform. They had to vote three times to do it – and they had to lie to deem it passed, even though it was clear that the measure did not pass a voice vote in the chamber. The original 2012 Democratic Party platform had excised all mention of God and Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.

Hope Obama has a whole bunch of those remote drones hidden away somewhere. He's made it pretty clear he's not too keen on showing strength or building up our defenses militarily.

August is a significant month for Muslims, Ramadan. Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar.
Concerns are being raised that August 9, this Sunday, could also be significant in light of the heightened terror threats - or anytime this month.
Wonder how Obama would handle the unthinkable. He thought we were all getting along so well and declared al-Qaeda on the run quite a number of times right before the election.
Maybe this is just another one of those phony crisis he talks about.

General Sherman's land plan was a scam that hoped to incite Southern slave revolts at the end of the Civil War. Sherman had no real authority to give land away to freed slaves. Only a full Congress in session could do that .

The Republican Party has a message for CNN and NBC: Stop with the Hillary Rodham Clinton shows, or no debates for you.
Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, on Monday sent blistering letters to the network bosses, calling their decision to air Clinton projects just as the 2016 White House campaign is heating up "disturbing and disappointing." And if the shows go forward, the GOP will cut CNN and NBC out of Republican debates during primary season leading up to the election.
Romney did so well in the debates ;-)
Republican primary debates seemed to damage the GOP
Republicans should refuse to participate with NBC/MSNBC regardless of the Hillary propaganda movie.

And no debates, ever, with Candy Crowley or Gwen Ifill.
