271 words delivered by Lincoln studied by successors as a guide. But We the People should take it to heart!Actual Address Delivered at the Dedication of the Cemetery at Gettysburg on November 19, 1863 at bottom of this post. Please share.
Lincoln loved God as he clearly stated.
that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
It’s your choice in a free nation to love the Lord or not, that’s liberty. If we stop being a country that elevates the individual freedom, the power will continue to shift more toward government and continue to erode our individual liberties. Daily it should becoming more evident by the general public. But is it? It is obvious that Progressivism never works, and never has worked anywhere in the world as the video in this link clearly explains. And every time the progressive model has been tried, and politically starts to take root, it becomes irreversible until the country dies as Tytler clearly pronounces and proves those who are willing to do their own due diligence and look at the historical record here is an article that poses the very question “Is America in her Death Throes or Readying for a New Revolution? – Have Faith Tytler states
“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. “
When we allow a president like Obama continue to lie and shred the constitution we propel ourselves down the road to utter failure. ObamaCare Not “Law of The Land” ONLY House Can Tax! It is however another incremental step toward tyranny and loss of freedom.
Today is the Anniversary of the date Abraham Lincoln shared the Gettysburg Address, sadly now, as you read you’ll see perhaps even feel the true regression of character and truth that have taken hold in our Great and Exceptional United States of America. God bless America, God Bless Americans!
Jennifer Weber can’t read the Gettysburg Address to her students at the University of Kansas without taking a risk.
She chokes up a little, though she’s a Civil War author and historian. “A new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”She starts losing it right about there.
Demand accountability from our employees (Obama, Biden on down) in Government now!
The Obama admin is aiding and abetting terrorists with weapons and money while calling American Patriots Domestic Terrorists. This must be stopped.
Must read and share America!
Terry M. Hestilow, a Retired Army Captain with 30 years of service and combat experience in Vietnam and Afghanistan issued a dire warning to all Americans. After writing to Sen. Cornyn and receiving a pat answer the Captain replied. Below is this reply and a warning. God bless and protect him and his and the great nation of the USA.
From Captain Hestilow:
Many of you responded to my letter (March 2013) to Senator John Cornyn concerning the potential coup of the Obama Administration through agencies of the United States government, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), against the American people and the United States Constitution evidenced by the purchases of grossly excessive ammunition and weapon systems.
So who is Steven Grimaud? Steven is a Senior Executive Officer at the NSA. He’s one of those faceless individuals who monitors your phone records and email at the NSA, but nobody is supposed to know his name. I’ll be happy to tell you who he is. He’s my ex-husband. We were married when he was a Russian translator for the Navy Security Agency.
Our government was designed to be of The People, by The People and for The People. But the Obama administration has made nothing but mortal mistakes (intentional?) and a sickening mockery of Our Nation, Her Constitution and our Liberties. These impostors in congress and the White House have won favor with the sycophantic left wing media are using Islam and our own against us. This administration supports those who hate our people, loathe our liberty and are hell bent on destroying us physically and financially. -PBN
Federal, non-military agencies, noted radio host Mark Levin last week, have purchased enough ammunition recently to not only shoot every American five times, but also engage in a prolonged, domestic war.
The numbers are based on recent reports that put the total federal ammunition buy in the last 10 months at approaching two billion rounds.
“To provide some perspective,” Levin noted, “experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, the [Department of Homeland Security] is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war. A 24-year Iraq war!”
UPDATE: Obama and his masses conducting evil against the states.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Obama administration has delayed a decision on TransCanada Corp’s rerouted Keystone XL oil pipeline until after March, even though Nebraska’s governor on Tuesday approved a plan for part of the line running through his state.
“We don’t anticipate being able to conclude our own review before the end of the first quarter of this year,” said Victoria Nuland, a spokeswoman at the State Department, which had previously said it would make a decision by that deadline. Full post
God Bless Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman! TransCanada just got final approval to build its pipeline from the tar sands of Alberta all the way to the Gulf Coast of Texas. Done.
Gov. Heineman Press Release here.
Obama rejected the broader [Keystone XL] plan, saying the pipeline needed to be rerouted around Nebraska’s sensitive Sand Hills region. For that project, TransCanada needs presidential approval because it crosses an international border. The shorter portion only requires permits from state and federal agencies. TransCanada said the final of three permits it needed from the Army Corps of Engineers had been approved. The line from Cushing will help relieve a bottleneck at the Oklahoma refinery.
The governor approved a revised route for the Canada-to-Texas pipeline which his office said would avoid environmentally sensitive areas.
“Construction and operation of the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline, with the mitigation and commitments from Keystone would have minimal environmental impacts in Nebraska,” he wrote in a letter to Obama and Clinton.
The decision on final approval now rests with the Obama administration. The State Department is expected to decide within the next few months whether to permit the project to go forward — Heineman’s approval puts Obama in a difficult political spot.
The president had previously cited the Nebraska’s concerns about the pipeline as a key obstacle to approving the pipeline. At the same time, the president was able assuage the concerns of major environmental groups who not only voiced concern about the potential impact of a spill but also the emissions created by extracting and refining oil from what are known as oil sands in Canada.
After Obama in his inaugural address pledged to take action on climate change, the Sierra Club said it was “heartened” by Obama’s remarks and again urged the administration to reject “the dangerous tar sands pipeline.”
But supporters — including some in the president’s own party — have downplayed the environment impact and stressed the economic benefits the pipeline could bring. The pipeline is backed by the unions, and has been heavily promoted by Canadian officials. In Heineman’s letter, the governor said construction in Nebraska would yield $418 million in economic benefits.
Asked about the Nebraska governor’s decision Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney noted the State Department was still reviewing the issue.
“There are stages in this process. … I don’t want to get ahead of that process,” Carney said.
There are other hurdles beyond the federal government’s approval — needed because the pipeline crosses the U.S.-Canada border. A state court case has challenged the law that gives Heineman the power to approve such plans.
The American Petroleum Institute hailed the Nebraska decision Tuesday as a major step.
“Another major hurdle has been cleared,” API Executive Vice President Marty Durbin said. “With the approval from Nebraska in hand, the president can be confident that the remaining environmental concerns have been addressed.”
The governor said the new route would avoid the sensitive Sand Hills region, though would “cross” a vital aquifer. The governor expressed confidence that enough protections were in place to allow the project to go forward.
If these laws should pass, Illinois will be the most DANGEROUS state to live in.
This Illinois Senate postponed voting on two anti-gun House Bills that passed out of the Public Health Committee on Wednesday. The proposed measures would lead to an almost total gun ban in the state of Illinois. A major effort to urge state senators to vote against the bills, led by the NRA-ILA was successful for now, but a vote on the Illinois Senate floor could come as early as Tuesday, January 8th.
House Bills 815 and 1263 seek to impose major restrictions on gun ranges, ban possession of magazines with a capacity higher than 10 rounds, ban all detachable-magazine-semi-automatic rifles and pistols. List of gun restrictions below.
Are we, as American citizens slated to become…
Defenseless Public Slaves?
