What do you remember about the history of the United States civil rights movement?  Can you recall when America began to advance protection of rights for African-Americans, Indians, women's suffrage and Japanese-Americans?  And, what political party do you associate with leading the civil rights movement?

Good questions. Yet, sometimes American's memory is clouded by the here and now, and not by fact and reason.  

What if I told you the Republican party has led the fight for civil rights for over 150 years?  What if I told you the Democrats resisted civil rights for blacks, Indians and Japanese Americans? 

History, facts and the truth, something hard to get through amidst the fog of Obama and the progressive media.  Yet, the truth is, the Republican party has been the defenders of civil rights as long as their founding in 1856.  In fact, the Grand Old Party, was primarily created that year to oppose the pro-slavery movement heralded by the Democrat party.

Doesn't fit the narrative you were led to believe, huh?  Well, hang on for the best factual chronology about how throughout history Republicans have led a hard fought battle against the Democrats to assure civil rights for all Americans.

For due credit for excellent research and clarity on this topic, I refer you to two well sourced, credible blogs that lay out the facts and history of the civil rights movement.  Gateway Pundit and Maggie's Notebook will walk you through the timeline and history of how Republicans stood tall for civil rights.  Here are the links for their extensive work:

Maggie's Notebook:  The History of Democrat Racism 

Gateway Pundit:  The Real History of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement

Bottom line:  Know your history.  Don't let time and politics cloud your judgement.  Know the facts and stand strong for freedom, for all.

2014 was a year of non-stop headlines.  At every turn, practically every week America and the world was fixated on another crisis, tragedy or significant event.  

Now the hard part.  Selecting the top 10 news stories of 2014.  Whether you rank on the impact of a certain story or the level of public attention, these are the stories that made their mark on history.  So, when you look back years from now, this is what made 2014...

1.  Republican Election Victory.  The election of 2014 yielded one of the largest sweeping victories for the U.S. Senate and House by the Republican party.  Republicans gained 9 seats in the Senate, which ended Democrat Harry Reid's control of power in the Senate.  The Republicans reached historic level of seats with 247 and the Democrats with 188.  The baseline story of the November 4 election was grassroots America responded to halt the policies of Obama and to correct the path of the country.

2.  Liberalization of Immigration.  Most of 2014 was consumed with some element of immigration impact in America.  From the surge of illegal immigrants flooding the Southern border to Barack Obama issuing an Executive Order granting amnesty to 5+ Million illegals, our country's immigration policy is perhaps the most liberal since our founding.

3.  Civil Unrest in America.  Our country has experienced a year of tragedy.  Not just in the loss of life, but the civil decay of our society.  Riots and protests erupted following court rulings involving police officers not convicted with the shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death of Eric Garner in New York City.  Major riots and destruction of property occurred in Ferguson and other related violence occurred around the country.  The year ended with the assassination of two New York City police officers and a Florida police officer, due to continued civil violence.

4.  ISIS Becomes Army of  Islamic Caliphate.  The world witnessed the emergence of another serious threat in the Middle East.  An bonafide army of Muslims quickly seized territory in Syria and large portions of Iraq.  The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) overshadowed other terrorist groups like Al Qaeda.  ISIS used brutal tactics to slaughter Christians throughout areas they controlled.  After much delay, the United States and other countries provided military air support to suppress ISIS incursions.  To date, ISIS still holds significant territory in Northern Iraq and Syria.

5.  Ebola Outbreak.  Ebola, one of the most contagious viruses know to man, had a major outbreak in Africa which spread to the United States and seven other countries.  As of December, the World Health Organization reported 7,793 deaths and 19,980 infections, globally.  Unlike most all countries, the United States continued to allow inbound flights from African countries that were the source of the contagion.  Fear grew in America as the public worried of a mass outbreak.  Fears subsided after four infected patients in the United States fully recovered.  There was one death from Ebola in America in Dallas, Texas.

6.  Awakening of the Soviet Bear.  Russia's Vladimir Putin used military might to reclaim old Soviet countries.  Putin rolled troops and heavy armament into Crimea, seizing control of the small country.  Putin used Crimea as a tactical position to also move troops into Ukraine.  Although Putin did not succeed with taking Ukraine, he did receive global scorn and economic sanctions which impacted Russia's economy.

7.  Veterans Administration Scandal.  America was sickened by the treatment of its military veterans.  Long-term practices by employees of the Veterans Administration, restrained medical treatment for hundreds of veterans.  The VA used a system of wait lists that did not prioritize the severity of medical condition.  Thus, resulting in the death and ill treatment of many veterans.  In fact, over 100 veterans died and over 120,000 never receive requested medical care.  This scandal resulted in the resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki and VA Director Robert Pretzel.  Further investigations have revealed this practice in Phoenix and at least 5 other VA hospitals.

8.  Israel-Hamas Conflict.  Hamas terrorists seized civilian territory in Gaza.  Hamas used weapons funded by Iran to attack Israel.  Hamas terrorists used civilian hospitals and mosques as shields to hide their weapons.  After a barrage of rockets from Hamas, Israel countered with a military offensive to remove the terrorists and weaponry from Gaza.  The main conflict lasted for seven weeks with sporadic rocket attacks continuing by Hamas.

9.  Year of Headlines for the Commonwealth.  Virginia witnessed several high profile stories in 2014.  From the unseating of establishment Congressman Cantor by grassroots icon Dave Brat to the conviction of former Governor McDonnell and his wife for fraud.  In addition, Virginians and Republicans stood united to defeat Governor McAuliffe's attempt to expand Medicaid.

10. Malaysian Air Tragedy.  On March 8th, Malaysian Air flight 370 lost contact with air control while flying over the South China Sea.  After an aerial search was exhausted, a massive sea search could not locate the Boeing 777.   The aircraft was carrying 12 crew members and 227 passengers from 15 countries.  Neither weather, nor aggressive act could be confirmed as the reason for the disappearance.  Unrelated, another Malaysian Air flight on July 17 was shot down in Ukraine by pro-Russian separatists.  There were 298 fatalities.

Honorable Mentions:  Obamacare fallout, Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision, $18 Trillion national debt, Bergdahl prisoner exchange, Scotland votes to stay with UK, and Secret Service trouble with White House security.

Tis the season as friends and family gather for Christmas!  As we celebrate on this day, let us not forget the reason for this season.  Our faith and values are vital to how we conduct our life and are at the core of seeing us and our country through times of uncertainty.  Our faith, our family are at the heart of hope and prosperity for the future of this Republic.

Here's a scripture verse to reflect upon this Christmas Day...
Isaiah 9:6  For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

 On behalf of Maverick Media, I wish you and your family the very best for a Merry Christmas! - Flint Engleman

The American Maverick presents the 3rd annual award to highlight the most destructive political figure of the year - The Political Lump of Coal Award.  With the current administration, a host of unsavory politicos were a plenty to choose from.  
Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house.  Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.  What should surprise us was a jolly man with a list.  His list amazed all with those naughty and nice.  And this night Santa did appear with not a gift from his bundle, but a reminder to one who is befuddled.  Who's house was Santa visiting?  Why a house in Washington, DC for a man not worthy of reward.  Whose soul was worthy only of a lump of coal.

 The American Maverick Announces the 2014 "Political Lump of Coal" recipient...  

United States Attorney General Eric Holder
Contemptuous Holder wins by turning his back on the Constitution

Holder offers a bottomless pit of qualifications for Santa's lump of coal.  His alarming history stretches over year's of abuse of power and scandal.  Here's some key factors for Holder's selection:
  • Fast and Furious Scandal.  Holder was the first U.S. Attorney General to be charged with Contempt of Congress due to his refusal to turn over thousands of documents about the government's gun running scandal in Mexico.
  • Fort Hood Cover-up.  Holder forced the DOJ to determine the shooting of 13 lives by Nidal Hassan to be ruled "workplace violence", not terrorism.  Which caused military survivors and families not to receive full benefits.
  • Suppressing the Press.  Holder ordered investigations of members of the press including their families to pressure media from conducting investigative reporting on the White House.  This involved the Associated Press and Fox News.
  • Protecting Voter Intimidation.  In 2008, members of the New Black Panthers intimidated white voters at precincts in Philadelphia.  The case and all charges were dismissed by the DOJ under the direction of Holder.  This was the most blatant case of voter intimidation in 20 years.
  • War on Gun Owners.  Holder spearheaded Operation Chokepoint, which squeezed hundreds of gun store owners access to banking and loans.  Also, the DOJ approved every state's authorization that sought gun control enforcement.  In addition, there were numerous DOJ and BATF raids that seized firearms from citizens without return of property or legal recourse.
  • Instigator of Civil Unrest.  Holder has been a central player in civil disobedience during his tenure.  Notably, allowing the Occupy movement to persist in riots in multiple cities in 2011-12, and interjecting federal involvement with the 2014 unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.

Bottom Line:  Holder is the perfect reminder to citizens about all that is wrong with the federal government. He is vindictive and all political in every action and every breath of the day.  He is without a doubt the one politico that puts his loyalty and ideology ahead of the good of the country.  Thank goodness he's resigning.  He should have been gone long ago.

Runners up for the 2014 Political Lump of Coal:  President Barack Obama, White House Counsel Valerie Jarrett, and U.S. Senator Harry Reid.
