    I would not trust Bret Baier to say anything - that will damage the Dirty Lyin' Dems, so I assume he is being entrusted to be so called 'negative' in order to muddy up O'Biden in order to get him out of office in the medium to longer term. Making way for a new news Story before 2024 to enable the Dirty Lyin' Dems to survive again. BUT WE WILL NOT ALLOW IT.

    General Grant owned slaves. General Lee of the South didn't. 2 faced General helped Lincoln to divide a nation Go against states rights of succession. And got 600 thousand Americans killed. In Lincolns eyes the south had longer growing seasons. The north had the factories. When the south started building factories the north and Lincoln placed tariffs on the south to stop the factories. And grant helped use the Africans to win the war over economics not slavery. Remember only 1 percent owned slaves. The sad truth is if the sough would have worked with the north to build better factories in the north slavery would never had been an issue.

    If you look at the tragedies of what happened back then, it could bring tears to your eyes. But if you look at some of the things Grand said at the time, it would also bring tears to your eyes. He was a good man who did the best he could according to his circumstances and according to his lights. I'm glad he's on the 50.

    It seems to me Grant's corruption was exaggerated, and his accomplishments greatly underrated (including nothing less than conversion of the military victory into a stable peace and enforcement of human rights). Why was it exaggerated? Because much of the history of that period was written by Southern historians, who needed a villain, and he was a Northern president who had defeated the "Lost Cause" on the field of battle and presided over Reconstruction. In other words, for the same reason that historians use the term "radical Republicans" even though their "radicalism" basically consisted of ensuring that blacks in the South were not disenfranchised.

    Actually, Grant tried to enroll into West Point as Ulysses Hiram Grant because he did not want his initials to appear as HUG. When he enrolled at West Point, he wanted to correct the name from Ulysses S Grant to Ulysses Hiram Grant, not to his original birth name. He could not avail, so he accepted and adopted his new name.

    I also feel like we can draw comparisons to the Reconstruction effort and what has just happened in the Middle East with the same kind of logic the South was still in revolt there were still riots the KKK was getting more and more popular just as now with the Taliban I believe there's a couple of different lessons that we can take from history and it's a hard to say weather pulling the troops out that early was the best idea or if keeping them in would have led to more people joing to the KKK and adding more violence to that time and possibly even more deaths.

    I don't really get people like Bret Baier or Chris Wallace. These guys seem honest and like they just want to do some good reporting but they can't possibly be ignorant about what goes on in Fox's "opinion" pieces with Tucker and Hannity and the like... And for them to stay at Fox just helps Fox legitimize itself as a real news organisation which it is plainly not; it was founded to be conservative propaganda and they've leaned hard into that. All the more power to people like Shepard Smith who left that terrible, terrible organization...

    am I the only one to notice and get creeped out by the long stare into the camera Baier did in the beginning of the clip? he is sending out major "it puts the lotion in the basket" vibes. now I know that it's simply his sociopathic narcissism on full display. he is on network prime time television after all. he has to show superiority to other Fox Hosts who would never be invited on a late night show, i.e. Tucker, Laura, Sean, Gutfield, etc. Bret Baier isn't one of the worst on Fox. But he isn't much better. I will give it to Steven for having him on in the first place. even if he kept it pretty light, forgoing any really tough questions. That stare though... creepy molester vibes 100%. That's Fox News for ya. the network where sexual harassment and assault are not the exception but the norm.

      @Robert grey Grant himself said that the S didn't stand for anything. But Congressman Hamer, who did the paperwork for Grant's appointment to West Point, just assumed that he would have his mother's family name as his own middle name. Though a mistake, it turned out to be awfully handy for Grant to go by the initials US, both for his West Point nickname as "Uncle Sam" Grant or the moniker he was given by the public after taking Fort Donelson, "Unconditional Surrender" Grant.

      Grant's Tomb is in Manhattan, which surprised me when I came across it. Grant and his wife are both interred there, but not buried, because they're in above-ground sarcophagi. So it's kind of a trick question, on both counts. It's part of the National Park system.

      They’re on the same side. Baier works for the Nazis and so does Colbert.

      At this point i kind of think Colbert and Baier are mostly in agreement. Not politically, necessarily, but that's not what politics is about anymore. It's about people who believe in reality (Baier, Colbert) who may come to different conclusions but ultimately agree on the same bed of facts... versus people who just don't.

    Thank you and the crew for stepping up and filling in the blank of civics education through straight forward discussions about historical events, that make sense to folks and help us better understand our history and also providing an opportunity to learn from our history.

    I am disappointed Stephen would give any Fox News person, or really any conservative, serious air time. I guess that despite the biting satire of Tooning out the News, Stephen still falls into the liberal mind prison and treats the "nice" conservatives as serious interlocutors. They're all complicit in the evils of our country and the world.

      @Adelaide Steedley it depends on the issue and the polls you look at. As for your blanket statement that "conservative opinions kill people," that also depends on the issue and on your perspective. It's not the government's responsibility to prevent all deaths - there are times when other values should take priority, such as freedom. There are also plenty of left wing policies which can be argued to have killed people.

      @Ruspanic firstly, polls on key policy matters are not evenly split, from abortion to health care to infrastructure spending to immigration and tax policies, it’s due to gerrymandering and voter suppression that Congress appears evenly split. Secondly, conservative policies and opinions kill people. We don’t care about their opinions, people are dying.

      @Gautam Sarathy you don't have the numbers or the clout to make them politically irrelevant. Fox News is the most widely watched news network in the country, and that's because a huge chunk of the population is conservative. If you want your political views to dominate then you have to actually convince people, not just disenfranchise anyone who disagrees with you

      @Ruspanic Yes it will. If we make them politically irrelevant, they can't do any harm, and we can force liberals to actually do shit. If we have to have a right wing, let it be liberals.

      Half the country is conservative, if you refuse to engage with them you'll just divide us further and amplify everyone's worst impulses. Pretending conservatives are not serious interlocutors won't make them go away and it won't solve any problems

    I never before realized how much Baier looks and acts like Trump, right down to the fake orange tan. Also has the plastic trophy wife and two boys who don't seem too bright. Eerie. And somehow fitting.

    You want the unvarnished truth (the good, the bad, plus everything in between) about Ulysses S Grant read Ron Chernow’s award winning biography about the man’s life. I learned so much from that book (not just about Grant) cannot recommend it highly enough

    In the panic to trash EVERY Civil War figure, Grant was called a slave owner - in fact, he was 'given' a slave by his father-in-law - who he immediately freed. He was thought a fool because the slave was a needed worker and a 'valuable property' he should have sold. Grant's family were abolitionists
