Lincoln in Richmond (FAU.edu)
Good for Grand Old Partisan for remembering this historic anniversary. On December 6, 1865 the Republican Party abolished slavery. Grand Old Partisan reported:
On this day in 1865, the 13th Amendment — abolishing slavery — became part of the Constitution — when ratified by three-quarters of the states.
Despite protests from the Democrats, the Republican Party made banning slavery part of its national platform in 1864. Senator Lyman Trumbull (R-IL) wrote the final version of the text, combining the proposed wordings of several other Republican congressmen.
All Republicans in Congress voted for the 13th Amendment, while nearly all Democrats voted against it. So strongly did President Abraham Lincoln (R-IL) support the 13th Amendment, he signed the document, though presidential approval is not part of the amendment process.
Yes, outlawing slavery was a Republican achievement.
I have tried very hard in the last five years to find your redeeming qualities, qualities that make you qualified to occupy the oval office…sadly I can find only one. You seem to have a gift for campaigning, but not leadership. You have taken every opportunity to divide this nation whenever possible. A true leader goes out of his way to bring people together, but not you, why is that? You have lied so much and so many times to the American people, that not even you can keep track of them. And when you are confronted with a lie that you have told, you simply lie again to cover-up the previous one. That has to be exhausting.
I truly wonder as to why you and your wife have such contempt for this great nation, after all, it has allowed you (and your family) to rise to the very pinnacle of success and comfort. America isn’t perfect, but we as a nation and a people, constantly strive to live up to the ideals that were set down by our founding fathers. America represents more than just a place where dreams can come true if one is willing to work hard, it is a shining beacon of hope to the entire world. America is truly the land of milk and honey to millions of people across the world. We do not shy away from a difficult task, but embrace it, because we believe in our hearts that anything good, is worth the effort it takes to achieve it.
You once said, that you are constrained by the system put in place by our founders. Only a tyrant speaks thusly. You also said that you wanted to “fundamentally transform” this nation, but in to what? Why would you take a diamond and try to turn it into a lump of coal? I must tell you, that because of your actions, that you have not earned the respect of the American people, but their anger and resentment. But seriously sir, some of us knew what you were from the very beginning, a con artist who gets his strategies straight from the Communist Manifesto and Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. You never once had any desire to be an American, let alone a real American president. The path you are dragging us down, has already been attempted in many other countries and it only ends with the complete subjugation and dominance of the American people. And THAT is something that we (as a people) will simply not allow anybody to do.
The Daily Sheeple
Judge Andrew Napolitano has lambasted the government just a day after Thanksgiving.
His article for Fox News accuses the government of lying and cheating US citizens, and demands the return of the rights and liberties ‘stolen’ by the Obama administration.
He goes on to accuse the president of not upholding the Declaration or the Constitution even though he took an oath to do so.

CHAMBERSBURG - Know your constituency. It’s the first rule of local politics.
The second: What happens in New York City usually can only happen in New York City, and is best kept there. Policies that fit “The Big Apple” don’t fit a town that is, say, known statewide for its Apple Festival. Just ask Democrat Pete Lagiovane, the mayor of this Franklin County town who won’t return to office in January. He lost his bid for re-election – to a seat he won unopposed the last time – in part because he signed up Chambersburg as one of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun cities.
His Republican opponent, Darren Brown, said he knows one thing he’ll do immediately after being sworn in as mayor: “The very, very first thing I’d like to do is get Chambersburg off the ‘Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ list.”
Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.
Remember this quote the next time you hear Chris Matthews or some other member of the bla bla media tell you that Obama is just like Lincoln and then leaves out the part where Obama goes around the Constitution (again) or is attacking Freedom of the Press, Our Right to Bear Arms, that the TSA is just doing their job, that the NSA didn’t listen to you phone calls. Remember this when he says he will go around Congress. Remember this as he destroys the Free Market and replaces it with government control. Remember this as you watch your rights and freedom taken away…………….. and then tell me again that Obama is just like Lincoln. Barry is no Abraham Lincoln but hey, that’s just my opinion.

With Sarah Palin at WWII Memorial; photos of Americans killed in Benghazi at WWII Memorial; at Korean War Memorial with two uniformed Army troops mocking the shutdown; and the arrival of WWII Vets from Puget Sound at their memorial which was the highlight of the day. Proud to have been able to be with the thousands of people who gathered on a rainy Sunday morning to protest against President Obama’s insensitive closure of these sacred memorials to Veterans who have given so much in service to country and who have kept our nation safe and free.

With the Ride for the Constitution three days away, it came as no surprise when a story appeared in US News and World Report yesterday indicating that truckers were planning to congest the DC beltway and arrest congressmen during their October 11-13, 2013 event. According to their source, Earl Conlon, the truckers would ride 3 lanes deep circling I-495 and demand the arrest of those in office who have violated their oath. This part of the story is false. As someone who has been in contact with the organizer and their media spokesperson, the message has been and continues to be a peaceful protest to deliver grievances to Congress requesting they honor their oath by upholding the Constitution. Their entire intent can be read here. At no point has the arrest of those in office by truckers or law enforcement been on their agenda.
The Blaze also reported the same story and has since updated the original to include a statement by the organizers of the Truckers Ride for the Constitution. Ben Pam, one of the organizers, told The Blaze the group does not intend on arresting congressmen, obstructing traffic or closing down roads. A post by the organizers on their Facebook page indicates other trucking groups not associated with Ride for the Constitution and Truckers to Shut Down America are spreading false information in an effort to copy the original movement and “divide and conquer.”
