  • Is Truth Irrelevant?

    01/12/2021 4:35:42 AM PST · by Kaslin · 21 replies ^ | January 12, 2021 | Thomas Sowell
    It is amazing how many people seem to have discovered last Wednesday that riots are wrong -- when many of those same people apparently had not noticed that when riots went on, for weeks or even months, in various cities across the country last year. For too many people, especially in the media, what is right and wrong, true or false, depends on who it helps or hurts politically. Too many media people who are supposed to be reporters act as if they are combatants in political wars. Someone once said that, in a war, truth is the first casualty....
  • Quick Compelling Bible Study Vol. 43: 'A House Divided Against Itself'

    01/10/2021 6:22:27 AM PST · by Kaslin ^ | January 10, 2021 | Myra Kahn Adams
    The Scriptures we are studying today were spontaneously chosen only after I sat down to write this study. Since last Monday, I had every intention of writing about Psalm 46 and spent time researching the meaning of that magnificent “song” for these troubled times. Such a last-minute switch-out has never happened in the 42 previous volumes. Thus, my interpretation is that I am “supposed” to write about this famous phrase of scripture, which happens to be a political cliché, usually attributed to Abraham Lincoln:"A house divided against itself cannot stand."However, Lincoln was quoting Jesus. During Lincoln’s time, Americans often read...

    First, they came for the Confederates. And that purge is far from over. But the cultural-Marxist revolution has moved far beyond Davis, Lee and Jackson. Out west, it is Abraham Lincoln's turn.
  • Abraham Lincoln High School in San Francisco to be Renamed Because Black Lives Apparently Didn’t Matter to Him

    Not even Honest Abe is good enough for these people. A high school in San Francisco named after Abraham Lincoln, our nation’s sixteenth president, will soon be no longer because he apparently failed to demonstrate that “black lives mattered to him.” The San Francisco Unified School District evidently does not think that the freeing of the slaves after the Civil War and the ratification of the 13rd through 15th amendments to the US Constitution represents a sufficient legacy for them. The district isn’t even stopping there. The scrapping of Lincoln’s name will be just one of 44 changes they’re making....
  • Editorial: Mr. Lincoln’s Views on Slavery-His Course Towards the South (11/5/1860)

    11/05/2020 5:30:31 AM PST · by Homer_J_Simpson · 4 replies
    To the Editor of the New-York Times: You, of course, must be aware that at the approaching election there will be thousands of votes deposited against LINCOLN by men who are probably as much opposed to the extension of Slavery as he is. Why is this? Simply because they believe that Mr. LINCOLN means to wield the power of the party, whose head he is, directly against the South, and her cherished institution. And why do they hold this belief? Because the language of Mr. LINCOLN's speeches admits very plainly of such a construction. Now, it is useless for you...

    The Hill ^ | 10/02/20 | JOHN CRIBB
    This summer’s Republican National Convention was full of references to Abraham Lincoln, which is no surprise, given that Donald Trump likes to compare himself to the 16th president. It’s a comparison that aggravates Trump’s critics, who don’t like to see the man they consider the nation’s worst chief executive linked with the man widely regarded as the best. This may make those critics’ heads explode, but there are some fascinating parallels between the two presidents, as well as some contrasts. For starters, they share the same political party. Lincoln was the first Republican president. Trump is the 19th. Both men...

    The University of Wisconsin-Madison student government recently approved a resolution that calls for the removal of a statue of Abraham Lincoln on campus. The resolution claims that the statue is a “racist remnant” of “white supremacy.” According to a report by Campus Reform, students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison recently passed a resolution that calls on administrators to remove a statue of Abraham Lincoln. The resolution argues that the statue is a “racist remnant” of “white supremacy.” The resolution, which passed by unanimous consent, was drafted by student Kevin Jacobson. Jacobson argued that the Lincoln statue should be removed because...

    Is there anything less shocking than MSNBC analyst Michael Steele endorsing Biden for president? In August, the former Republican Party chairman joined the so-called Lincoln Project. But on Tuesday's Morning Joe, they came out of a commercial break and aired a kooky Lincoln Project commercial (gratis?) that explicitly compared Biden to Abraham Lincoln, and compared Trump's supposed refusal to concede power to.... a Lincoln assassination plot? STEELE: Imagine that night. Tensions high. A nation torn apart. A plot here in Baltimore City to assassinate a newly-elected president on his way to inauguration. And to plunge the country into chaos. Abraham...

    President Trump called on federal law enforcement to target the “Radical Left” and Antifa after rioters in Portland on Sunday evening toppled statues of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt during “day of rage” protests over the Christopher Columbus holiday. “The FBI and Law Enforcement must focus their energy on ANTIFA and the Radical Left, those who have spent the summer trying to burn down poorly run Democrat Cities throughout the USA!,” the president wrote in a string of tweets Monday after the “indigenous peoples day of rage,” organized by a faction of Antifa. “Taking advantage of fools.

    A group of protesters toppled statues of former presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln in Portland’s South Park Block late Sunday before moving into other areas of downtown, smashing windows and engaging in other acts of destruction. Police declared the event a riot and ordered people in the area to disperse but did not directly intervene until nearly an hour after the first statue fell. The crowd scattered when police cruisers flooded the area, and officers appeared to make several arrests. Protest organizers had promoted the event on social media as an “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage.” Monday is the...

    National Review ^ | October 7, 2020 | Dan McLaughlin
    It was impossible to miss how Kamala Harris, like Joe Biden, refused to answer questions about their plans to expand the Supreme Court. But she also misrepresented history. Harris claimed at the VP debate that Abraham Lincoln refused to nominate a candidate for Chief Justice in October 1864 because “Honest Abe said, it’s not the right thing to do” and wanted the people to vote first. Lincoln, of course, said no such thing. He sent no nominee to the Senate in October 1864 because the Senate was out of session until December. He sent a nominee the day after the...

    Front Page Magazine ^ | Sat Oct 3, 2020 | Jason D. Hill
    The attacks on Fox News host Tucker Carlson as a racist, white nationalist, xenophobic, immigrant-hating troll have become coin of the realm in the establishment media. Last week, the Daily Beast hit an all-time low when one of its reporters accused Carlson of blaming George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Jacob Blake for their own deaths and injuries from police. The almost libelous article attributes claims that Carlson actually never made on his show. The Daily Beast reporter simply offers his own dubious interpretations of Carlson’s interpretation of news and facts as he receives them. Carlson has been lambasted for criticizing...
  • Lincoln’s Warning to Modern America

    One of Abraham Lincoln’s first major speeches, the Lyceum Address, was a warning to America that rings truer yet today. Americans are blessed to have inherited so much from the Founders including guarantees of liberty more “than any of which the history of former times tells us,” Lincoln said in 1838. Americans’ obligation, he said, was to show, “gratitude to our fathers, justice to ourselves, duty to posterity, and love for our species in general.” That would be the formula for a young nation to thrive. In 2020, we find ourselves asking: What are the greatest dangers we face? How...

    It’s been hard to miss the steady drumbeat of articles and think-pieces over the past few months about Election Day war games and post-election planning underway on the left, rooted in obsessive fears that President Trump will refuse to accept an electoral loss, triggering a constitutional crisis and maybe even widespread civic unrest, all in a desperate attempt to cling to power.“The Left Secretly Preps for MAGA Violence After Election Day,” reads a recent headline at The Daily Beast. “Is Trump Planning a Coup d’État?” asks another recent piece at The Nation. “Is America in the Early Stages of...

    Together, the men had shipped crates of fraudulent votes back to New York. But their scheme was over. Wood reported the operation to authorities. Ferry’s office was searched, and on the morning of Oct. 27, 1864 — less than two weeks before the election — he and Donahue stood trial before a military commission.

    It was the greatest coffee run in American history. The Ohio boys had been fighting since morning, trapped in the raging battle of Antietam, in September 1862. Suddenly, a 19-year-old William McKinley appeared, under heavy fire, hauling vats of hot coffee. The men held out tin cups, gulped the brew and started firing again. “It was like putting a new regiment in the fight,” their officer recalled. Three decades later, McKinley ran for president in part on this singular act of caffeinated heroism. At the time, no one found McKinley’s act all that strange. For Union soldiers, and the lucky...

    In a recent article about Mount Rushmore, The New York Times said of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt that “each of these titans of American history has a complicated legacy.” Reporters Bryan Pietsch and Jacey Fortin casually summarized the woke herd’s litany of grievances: Washington and Jefferson owned slaves, Lincoln was “reluctant and late” to issue the Emancipation Proclamation and Roosevelt “actively sought to Christianize and uproot Native Americans.” Rushmore’s sculptor, Gutzon Borglum, didn’t escape unscathed. “Borglum had been involved with another project: an enormous bas-relief at Stone Mountain in Georgia that memorialized Confederate leaders,” the...
