President Obama Disses God at Gettysburg

It has become common place for President Obama – in many of his speeches including now the Gettysburg Address – to leave out the very One that our Founding Fathers knew to be the Foundation and Bedrock of this once great nation. It is from this One alone that “all men are endowed with certain unalienable rights”.

Photos: The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln

During my family’s recent visit to Washington D.C., we stopped by Ford’s Theater near Chinatown in D.C. This is the historic place where President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated shortly after Confederate General Robert E. Lee had surrendered. Lincoln and his wife were attending in the Presidential Box on the right side of the theater above the stage. John Wilkes Booth, an actor who was very familiar with Ford’s Theater, entered the booth and shot Lincoln, not killing him instantly but mortally wounding him before jumping onto the stage and escaping.

My family and I recently visited the Gettysburg Civil War battlefield in Pennsylvania, and I wanted to share some of our pictures with you. One of the things that struck me early on in our tour was the fact that the battlefield was much larger than I had ever imagined. Not having extensively studied the battle, I was under the assumption that it all took place in a relatively confined and geographically close area. Not so. The battle took place in the small town of Gettysburg, as well as in several major locations spread around the town on almost all sides.

Barack Obama is no Abraham Lincoln

Barack Obama seeks to associate himself with Abraham Lincoln. Their similarities both begin and end with an Illinois mailing address. Consider, for instance, that, whereas Lincoln was both a Republican and a strong social conservative by modern standards – Obama is a hard-left Democrat and radical Marxist by any standard. Whereas Lincoln ultimately united a nation brutally divided, Mr. Obama brutally divides a nation once united.

Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin: Two Very Different Legacies

Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born on the exact same day, FEBRUARY 12, 1809, but their lives had opposite effects. Lincoln is best known for freeing millions of slaves by issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, claiming all men are created equal. Darwin’s theory of evolution claims men are not equal as some are more evolved, and has been used by totalitarian regimes to enslave millions.

Paying for Every Drop of Blood Drawn With the Lash

Paying for Every Drop of Blood Drawn With the Lash

On FEBRUARY 11, 1861, newly elected President Abraham Lincoln left Springfield, Illinois for Washington-never to return. Forty-five days before his assassination, Lincoln stated in his Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1865: “If God will that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsmen’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said ‘the Judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.'”
