Re: Abraham Lincoln was a Tyrant
Exactly. He was a tyrant, and responsible for more deaths of Americans than any other President in history, BY FAR.

And that's why he's celebrated as a hero, and one of the greatest presidents, by the banking elites that own and control the government.

 Quoting: Open Your Eyes


Let's see:

~suspends habeus corpus
~arrests the Maryland legislature because they might disagree with him
~is said to have an arrest warrant issued for the Supreme Chief Justice who disagreed with him on suspending rights
~arrested a few thousand newspaper editors and writers because they disagreed
~ deliberately acted to destroy the spirit and livelihoods of non combatants in the southern states, letting many freeze and suffer during the winter months, at a time (the mid 19th century) when non combatant civilians were still considered off limit by most civilized nations at war
~approved of measures to use rape as a weapon against the women of the occupied southern states

and on top of all that, didn't even seem to like the former slaves and was already making plans to ship them off to dig the Panama Canal to get them out of the USA

sure sounds like a wonderful role model to me...

and yes, I grew up with Lincoln hero worship like everyone else my age, and yes, he was a wonderful writer

but I read and re-read US history from 1789 to 1860, and no where could I see where states which had peaceably joined to form a union were told they would be crushed if they chose to exit.

If it had been there, I imagine almost none of the state representatives would have agreed to that clause, or signed the articles of confederation, as they had just fought the battle of their generation to get free of the yoke of a Monarchy

They had spent years crafting a document to ensure that they would have rights and freedoms going into the future, why would they agree to a union, an experiment in government which had no exit?

Re: Abraham Lincoln was a Tyrant
By the way, it was Lincoln that originally dealt the fatal blow to the Constitution. Congress disbanded in 1861 prior to the Civil War, and was never lawfully reconvened. After that, he gave himself dictatorial powers basically, and since then the federal government has done whatever it has wanted, completely sidestepping the Constitution.

Lincoln is responsible for creating the federal monster we have today, that has been ignoring the Constitution entirely for over 150 years now.

President Lincoln did no such thing. The war was fomented long before he ever took office with four states ready to leave the union. Washington DC has always been an occult ran dictatorship. They took states rights at this time. Lincoln had no say in the matter, just a figurehead no different than Obama today.

He did try and end it all tho by arresting some of the Copperheads causing the war. For this they killed him. The conspiracy was far too big as JFK would also learn.

You are spot on! Unfortunately, most people find it too taboo to admit. The educational system and media focus on Lincoln as if he were the founding father. Perhaps in a sick way, they are right. We are living his federal legacy.

This was written by someone in response to Bill O'Reilly's take on Lincoln:

Commentator and author Bill O'Reilly is fond of continually saying, “we need leadership in this country, WE NEED ANOTHER LINCOLN.” Just why is that Bill?

Do we need to kill another million or so Americans, suspend Habeas Corpus and drag folks out of their beds in the middle of the night (there were thousands of political prisoners in Northern Jails uncharged and with no access to representation). Do we need intimidate voters at polling places with armed military or shut down all opposition news media in the country (in which case O’Rielly would be the first one out of a job). Lincoln shut down hundreds of newspapers in the North.

Perhaps we need to burn down a few of our cities, hang or shoot a few innocents to make an example; disarm the border population and blockade a few of our states for the sole purpose of collecting taxes as Lincoln stated? Should we have a leader that deports his congressional opponents and incarcerates state legislators at will, allows his generals to oversee the theft of private property, rape indiscriminately and dig up the graves of his citizens looking for valuables?

How about relocating thousands of citizens based on ethnicity as Grant did to American Jews with general order #11, or deporting and colonizing the entire black population back to Africa which was Lincoln’s ultimate goal, all while beginning the extermination of Native Americans. Entire volumes have been written about war crimes against Southern civilians perpetrated by his generals and condoned by the president, in some cases even promoting them afterwards.

Almost immediately after taking office, Lincoln became a self appointed military dictator, trampling the constitution and suspending civil liberties. He provoked a war while Congress was in recess and refused all attempts at diplomacy. The principles of separation of powers and checks and balances were nearly nonexistent. He even went so far as to threaten the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court with imprisonment.

So just why do we need another Lincoln Bill? If it's a totalitarian dictatorship your looking for I'd suggest North korea or Cuba...

~Robert~

Oh yes, he saved the Union at the point of the bayonet and the war ended slavery, which was accomplished in every other country on earth without blood shed...

Re: Abraham Lincoln was a Tyrant
Or how about this little gem:


"Largest mass hanging in United States history"

38 Santee "Sioux" Indian men
Mankato, Minnesota, Dec. 26, 1862

What brought about the hanging of 38 Sioux Indians in Minnesota December 26, 1862 was the failure "again" of the U.S. Government to honor it's treaties with Indian Nations. Indians were not given the money or food set forth to them for signing a treaty to turn over more than a million acres of their land and be forced to live on a reservation.

Indian agents keep the treaty money and food that was to go to the Indians, the food was sold to White settlers, food that was given to the Indians was spoiled and not fit for a dog to eat. Indian hunting parties went off the reservation land looking for food to feed their families, one hunting group took eggs from a White settlers land and the rest is history.
Authorities in Minnesota asked President Lincoln to order the immediate execution of all 303 Indian males found guilty.

Lincoln was concerned with how this would play with the Europeans, whom he was afraid were about to enter the war on the side of the South. He offered the following compromise to the politicians of Minnesota: They would pare the list of those to be hung down to 39. In return, Lincoln promised to kill or remove every Indian from the state and provide Minnesota with 2 million dollars in federal funds. Remember, he only owed the Sioux 1.4 million for the land.

So, on December 26, 1862, the Great Emancipator ordered the largest mass execution in American History, where the guilt of those to be executed was entirely in doubt. Regardless of how Lincoln defenders seek to play this, it was nothing more than murder to obtain the land of the Santee Sioux and to appease his political cronies in Minnesota.

~Robert~

SAINT PAUL, December 27, 1862. The PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I have the honor to inform you that the thirty-eight Indians and half-breeds ordered by you for execution were hung yesterday at Mankato at 10 a.m. Everything went off quietly and the other prisoners are well secured. Respectfully, H. H. SIBLEY, Brigadier-General.

Abraham Lincoln 'tried to deport slaves' to British colonies

By TOM LEONARD
UPDATED: 16:00 EST, 11 February 2011

Abraham Lincoln’s reputation as the great champion of America’s slaves has taken a battering amid new evidence that the revered president wanted to send many of them to toil in British colonies in the Caribbean.

...according to evidence from the British legation in Washington that has turned up at the National Archives in Kew, the president was deadly serious about black colonisation right up until his assassination in 1865.

Mr Magness and Mr Page say that just after Lincoln announced the ...Emancipation Proclamation, he authorised plans to set up freedmen’s settlements in what is now Belize and Guyana.

And even as black soldiers were dying for the Union cause and a mission to send 453 freed slaves to colonise a pest-ridden island off Haiti met with a disastrous small pox outbreak, Mr Lincoln was secretly authorising British officials to recruit what could have been hundreds of thousands of blacks for a new life on the sugar and cotton plantations of Central America.
