    US Defense Watch ^ | April 30, 2017 | Ray Starmann
    The War against the Confederacy is a War against America. The War against the Confederacy is a war on American history. The War against the Confederacy is a war against all of us and a war on America’s institutions. The War against the Confederacy is being waged by militant leftists, big government lackeys, aggrieved snowflakes and the hate America crowd. Since a psychotic young man, who owned a Confederate flag, killed nine parishioners at a black church in South Carolina in June of 2015, the radical left, big government crowd in this country is doing something they’ve wanted to do...
  • Chelsea Clinton Hopes MAGA Hat on Pic of Lincoln Is Photoshopped

    Chelsea Clinton is 37 years old — 19 years past the minimum voting age, 16 years over the legal age to drink, no longer entitled to reflexive press protection as the daughter of a Democratic President or presidential candidate, and thus eligible for ridicule when she deserves it — even if the establishment media's gatekeepers don't like it. I'd suggest that if you really have to ask, as Mrs. Clinton did, if a "Make America Great Again" hat seen on a rendering of Abe Lincoln on the cover of a Republican Party dinner program has been "photoshopped," you deserve every...

    Jenny Heinz, a longtime Metropolitan Opera and New York Philharmonic subscriber, calculates that over the past 60 years, she has been to hundreds of performances at Lincoln Center. But when she showed up this month at David Geffen Hall to see the Budapest Festival Orchestra, she was barred from attending when she refused to remove an 8-by-11-inch sign affixed to the back of her jacket. It read: “NO! In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a fascist America.” Ms. Heinz, 72, said she had been wearing the sign since she attended a protest outside Trump Tower in November....

    Thought Crimes; The Trump Diaries ^ | 02-16-17 | Chris Shugart
    The Second American Civil War is gradually coalescing into an observable phenomenon. The lines are being drawn and people are taking sides in noticeable ways. As it now stands, we have something of a "cold war" going on as it once existed between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Espionage, intelligence breaches, clandestine black bag operations, fifth column saboteurs, and the like. But important questions remain: As the war continues, how will the conflict evolve? Will it escalate? If so, what will be the flashpoint that puts it in full motion? Will it turn into a full-fledged armed conflict? As...

    President-elect Donald Trump will swear on two different Bibles during his inauguration ceremony at the United States Capitol on Friday, one of which will be the same Bible used by Abraham Lincoln during his first inauguration. The Presidential Inauguration Committee announced on Tuesday that Trump, who will be sworn in as the 45th president, will use his own Bible and a Bible used by Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, when he took his first oath of office on March 4, 1861. In addition, it was also announced that Chief Justice John Roberts will conduct Trump's swearing-in ceremony....

    President-elect Donald Trump will swear in as president on a Bible used by Abraham Lincoln during his first inauguration as president. The Lincoln Bible is currently part of the Library of Congress collection and was used by Obama to swear in as president after the 2008 and 2012 elections. Only Obama and Lincoln have used that copy of the Bible to swear the oath of office.

    Rutherford Birchard Hayes, 19th President of the United States wrote: The real difficulty is with the vast wealth and power in the hands of the few and the unscrupulous who represent or control capital. Hundreds of laws of Congress and the state legislatures are in the interest of these men and against the interests of workingmen. These need to be exposed and repealed. All laws on corporations, on taxation, on trusts, wills, descent, and the like, need examination and extensive change. This is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people no longer. It is a...

    Today is the anniversary of President Lincoln's delivery of his "brief remarks" at the dedication of the new national cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any other nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a...

    “DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. had considered moving production of the Lincoln MKC to Mexico, but instead the compact premium crossover will remain at the Louisville Assembly Plant, the automaker confirmed Thursday night. Ford spokeswoman Christin Baker said the Cuautitlan plant was the “likely” new plant for the MKC when the automaker’s deal with the UAW expires in 2019. But now the automaker plans to build the next generation of the MKC in Louisville, Kelli Felker, Ford’s global manufacturing and labor communications manager told Automotive News late Thursday.”

    By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation. Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation. And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy...

    When Donald Trump refused to concede the 2016 Election in advance of Nov 8th, they all immediately turned on him. Hillary, Chris Wallace, the entire MSM (even Fox and the NY Post!), as well as the GOPe said that Trump was out of line with his refusal to concede beforehand. How quickly they forget! It's been brought up many times in these forums that Algore contested the 2000 election, but I haven't seen any mention of one of the most devastating 'contested' elections in American history ... that being the election 1860. Not only was election 1860 'contested' but fully...

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. At the lowest point in the second presidential debate Hillary Clinton tried to blame her compulsive lying on Abraham Lincoln. Not the real Lincoln, but the fictional version depicted in the Spielberg movie. “She lied. Now she's blaming the lie on the late great Abraham Lincoln,” Trump said in exasperation. “Honest Abe never lied.” The only thing Hillary and Lincoln have in common is Illinois. If Hillary had been looking for wisdom from Lincoln, she might have started with the famous...

    The Lincoln Journal Star ^ | August 23, 2016 | Lindsay Esparrago
    It was the battle of the bobbleheads. Five hundred plastic, blue-pantsuit-wearing Hillary Clintons stood on tables across from 500 “Make America Great Again” red hat-wearing Donald Trumps -- a stare down, but with plastered smiles on their bobblehead faces. Tuesday night marked the third Bobble Election at Haymarket Park, held in honor of the upcoming presidential election. Saltdogs’ fans cast their votes by choosing a free bobblehead before settling down for a game. Whichever of the 500 bobbleheads ran out first was the winner. Charlie Meyer, president and general manager of the Lincoln Saltdogs, said the poll wasn’t about politically...
