If Obama is the New Lincoln, What Should Be Expected

The New US president has made many references to his respect and admiration for the assassinated US Civil War era president Lincoln. Mr. Obama went so far as to even swear his oath upon the Lincoln Bible. Though modern US mythology paints Lincoln as a great defender and champion of freedom and human rights, a close study of history paints a very different and very disturbing alternate image.

Few leaders in the history of humanity have been so absolutely white washed as has Abraham Lincoln. A man who over turned, ignored and trampled upon the very laws he was sworn to protect, a man who had nothing but contempt for the slaves he supposedly freed which he did not, a man who ruled as a tyrant absolute was recreated, post his assassination, into one of the greatest heroes of America and champions of the very Constitution he mocked. This is the true power of American PR, not only to fool the world, but to truly cleanse the minds of its own population, of historic truth.

So, we, dear reader, shall now endeavor to pull back the curtain on the real Abraham Lincoln and will see what, if Obama is the new Lincoln, to expect.

Who was Abraham Lincoln? To get to the bottom of what this Railroad Lawyer, who represented some of the most powerful northern oligarchs of their time, was, one must look at who and what the Republican Party of the United States was/is. However, to do that, one must take a further step back to the year 1848 and the Forty Eighters.

Amongst the ill informed masses of America, some of the people are aware of the Russian Revolution of 1917, though fewer still the actual causes. Most have been fed on a tonic of: the evil Tsar this and the evil Tsar that. Fewer still remember the 1905 Marxist revolution that was crushed in the Russian empire and all but none know of the first Marxist revolutions, that of 1848 (though it may be argued that the French Revolution was a proto-Marxist revolution in and of itself). In the year 1848, armed with the Communist Manifesto and Marx's wealth club of financiers: the League of Just Men, Socialists and Marxists rose up in 18 separate revolts, throughout central Europe. The kings of Europe crushed these revolts and those instigators who were not arrested and rightly hung, fled to the United States and Canada. Some fled to England but of those, most wore out their welcome rather quickly. Four thousand 48ers escaped to America, taking new careers in the virgin land, as journalists, teachers and politicians, where Marx is still a god to this day.

Thus men such as Friedrich Annete, a Prussian officer discharged for membership of the Communist League in Prussia or Carl Schurz, another German communist who fled to America and after a stint became one of the founders of the Republican Party in 1854. After Abraham Lincoln’s election he became envoy to Spain. Upon his return from Spain, this Marxist was awarded the rank of Major General and command of the 3rd Division, Army of the Potomac. After the war he became editor and chief of the Detroit Post. Yes, that is correct, the Republican Party of America was founded by Socialists and Marxists. Is it any surprise at how Bush and others have acted on the world stage?

As a matter of fact, there were many Marxists who founded the Republican Party, got Lincoln elected and were rewarded by him. Let us explore a few more:

Franze Sigel, born in Baden, Germany, a former Prussian officer who took part in the 1848 revolution and fled to the United States via Switzerland and than England. Prior to the Civil War, he rose up to be the head of the public school district of St. Louis. That is correct, the northern Midwest, Lincoln's old stomping grounds. He entered the Union Army as a Colonel, commander of the 3rd Missouri and was quickly promoted to Brigadier General. By 1862 he was a Major General. After the war, Sigel became a journalist. Notice a pattern?

Jospeh Weydemeyer, a former Prussian officer who became a true follower of Marx in 1845 and a member of the League of Communists, he also took part in the 1848 uprising. He at first stayed on in Germany, becoming a journalist and an editor of several Marxists newspapers. Eventually, in 1851, he immigrated to the United States. In New York, he established the Die Revolution, a German Marxist newspaper where he republished Marx's works, with whom he regularly corresponded. He also formed America's first Marxist organization, with four friends, the American Workers' League, in 1853. That is correct, within two years of landing in America, this particular Marxist had already established an organization and a news paper to radicalize the North.
When the Republican Party was founded, Weydemeyer worked tirelessly to bring the German vote to this new Red entity. During this time, he had moved to the Midwest, Lincoln's stomping grounds, and worked as a full time journalist, agitating for Lincoln, from the city of Chicago. Is it any wonder that Chicago's politics are still the dirtiest and most socialist of America?
In 1860 he joined the US Army and became a tactical aid on the staff of General John C. Fremont. With the start of the Civil War, he became a colonel of the artillery. After a nervous break down, he left the military in 1865, after spending the rest of the war in St. Louis on garrison duty. After the war he was a journalist and than a politician.

Another stellar example is Friedrich Salomon, yet another Prussian officer and Marxist and the brother of Wisconsin's governor Edward Salomon. Friedrich raised a regiment of the 9th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, to fight for the Union and his Republican brothers. Edward Salomon, upheld Lincoln's edict on the draft by declaring that the draft would be upheld at any cost, arresting hundreds of demonstrators. Though the draft was highly unpopular, a Marxist like Edward made sure that one in nine citizens served in the Union Army. Friedrich was soon promoted to the rank of Brigadier General and his position was taken by his third brother Charles.

Fritze Anneke, a former officer of the Artillery of the Prussian Army, a 48er and a US colonel, commanding the 34th Wisconsin. Before the war, he was a poet and playwright as well as a journalist. The media take over by the Left, in America, is a very old campaign.

Konrad Krez, Colonel of the 27th Wisconsin, he fled from Prussia after taking part in the 1848 uprising. Before the war, he became a lawyer in Milwaukee.

Richard Hinton, a stone cutter from England, who came to the US in 1851, to New York City. In New York, he became a printer and then a reporter. He then moved to Kansas and agitated there. In 1862 he formed the First Kansas Colored Regiment, of which he became the colonel, some time in 1864. He continued to write until he was appointed to several positions in the Federal Government under the administration of Ulysses S. Grant.

Even a famous American face such as Allan Pinkerton, the founder of the Pinkerton Detective agency (who often shot strikers for his Marxist oligarch masters, there's workers' rights for you, much like in any real Marxist state) was a Republican and an admirer and financier of the radical John Brown. He was once quoted as telling his son that John Brown was a greater man than Napoleon or Washington.

Other prominent Union officers and Republicans were also Marxists. Amongst these were men such as:

Louis Blenker, a Brigadier General, whose division, the 8th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, of which he was a colonel before being raised in rank, was famous for looting much of central Virginia, inspiring the term "blinkered". A former goldsmith and doctor and an officer of the Prussian army. In 1848 he led an insurgent corp. against the King of Prussia and was crushed. His overall service was poor, supply shoddy and he was mustered out in 1863.

Robert Rosa, major of the 45th New York Infantry and member of the New York Communist Club.

August Wilich, a former Prussian officer and leading proponent of Prussian communism. He also fled Germany in 1848, via England, landing in America. In Ohio he worked as a carpenter, until 1858, when he became a journalist, editing a German language free labor newspaper. In August 1861, he was a major in the 9th Ohio Infantry, working actively to enlist German immigrants. That winter he became colonel. After several battles, he was a brigadier general in 1862, now in command of the 32nd Indiana.

There were many more, of course, but I do not wish to bore you. So it is needless to say, that Lincoln's Union Army was thoroughly populated by an officer corps made up of socialists and Marxists. Many were journalists and many of the remaining journalists were Marxists also, those that is that Lincoln did not imprison without charges or trial. As one prominent American communist journalist put it, a fellow named Karl Heinzen: "If you have to blow up half a continent and cause a blood bath to destroy the party of barbarism, you should have no scruples or conscious [about doing it]."

Carl Marx, himself, worked as a foreign correspondent for the Horace Greeley's New York Tribune. He was hired by another communist, the managing editor of the paper, Charles Dana, who later became Lincoln’s Assistant Secretary of War. That was when the Department of Defense was properly still called the Department of War, what it has always been.

During Lincoln's campaign, Marx cheered him on, calling him "The single minded son of the working class." Marx even wrote a personal letter of congratulations to Lincoln, on both of his elections, letters that were hand delivered by the US ambassador to England. Praise from Marx and his communists continued to fall upon Lincoln and even through the 1930s, the Communist Party of New York celebrated a Lincoln-Lenin Day. Marx was also very active in drumming up support in England and France to stymie their recognition of the Confederacy and the loaning of aid for its survival.

So now we come to the rule of Lincoln himself.

I apologize, dear reader, if it took so long to get here, but one must understand what the party of Lincoln, the Republican party stood for and who manned the military and surrounded Lincoln.

Americans as a whole love the tired and worn out myth of loving their freedom, their constitution and their rights and being willing to die for them. Nothing could be further from the truth, well at least in the North.

In the 1850s, as the Republican Party came to power, they and their Whig allies, in order to help their Marxist oligarchs and financial backers, while building the Imperial Federal government, placed heavy export duties on American goods. At that point, most of those goods came out of the South. Thus it came to pass that 30% of the American population was paying for 70% of the Federal budget. The government was growing quickly, making an onerous yoke upon the people. However, the German/English stock of the North seemed to enjoy this, while the Scots Irish of the South chaffed. As such, at this point, with the election of Abraham Lincoln, a dedicated Red, the Southern states, in their individual assemblies voted overwhelmingly to secede, as was their right at the time under the US Constitution.

Lincoln and the Republicans would have none of that. The problem was, much of the North was against any kind of war and while choosing not to leave the Union, actively supported the South's rights. To that end, Lincoln suspended the right of Habeas Corpus and without charges, began the mass arrests of his enemies and critics. With Republicans and Whigs the majority of Congress, his edicts were rubber stamped, little different from those of another despot in the 1930s and 1940s, Adolph Hitler and his Reichstag.

In total, 48,000 people were imprisoned by Lincoln, without trial, their lands confiscated, their reputations destroyed, their lives ruined, all this by the "champion" of the Constitution, as he is now called. Amongst these were prominent journalists, editors and politicians. In short, Lincoln all but wiped out the old conservative press of America. He further forbade the post service from delivering any newspaper or magazine that dared to criticize him.

Military police would storm through doors in the middle of the night, arresting Lincoln's opponents with out warrant or charges. Military prisons were quickly filled up. Congressman Vallandigham from Ohio, who had made speeches defending the Constitution, had his own door busted down at 0230hrs on 3 May 1863. He was first imprisoned and tried by a military commission and than deported from the US. That is correct, a Congressman from the US Congress. It is rather interesting that in his last speech before his arrest, he stated that for those who supported Lincoln: Defeat, debt, taxation [and] sepulchers - these are your trophies. He further denounce King Lincoln.

You see, General Burnside had declared that there was a full suspension of the freedom of speech and assembly in the military district of Ohio.

Did the American public rise up? In majority no, though there were protests and draft riots, to which Lincoln answered with rank fire from his infantry divisions, mowing down protestors. Yet to all this, the country of 1860s did not rise up in rage.

When the state senate of Maryland voted to stay in the Union but not to condemn the Confederacy for leaving, Lincoln had half the senate arrested. They were soon joined by the mayor of Baltimore. This is the same Lincoln who at Gettysburg proclaimed: "A government of the People, by the People, for the People."

It is rather ironic that, the grandson of Frances Scott Key, Frances Key Howard, editor of a newspaper critical of Lincoln, was imprisoned at the very same prison as his grandfather had been by the British: Ft. McHenry, Baltimore.

Lincoln's audacity went so far as to even issue an arrest warrant for the 83 year old Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Roger Taney, who ruled that several of Lincoln's commands and orders were anti-constitutional. His arrest was never carried out, though, as the political whip lash may have been to great even for Lincoln to bare.

Lincoln, of course, as any good despot, had many willing sociopaths to go along with his plans. Amongst these were Oliver Hazard Perry Throck Morton, the Civil War governor of Indiana and a founding Republican. During the war he set up a secret police to monitor any pro-Confederacy sentiment and crush all opposition to Lincoln's decrees. The police were run under Henry B. Carrington, a Brigadier General in the Union Army. Arbitrary arrests, suppression of the Bill of Rights were the norm, resulting in a state wide repression.

Thus, Lincoln was a tyrant by no small degree. Even one of Lincoln's greatest apologists, the historian Clinton Rossiter, in the "Constitutional Dictatorship" writes: "Dictatorship played a decisive role in the North's successful effort to maintain the Union by force of man was the government of the United States...Lincoln was a great dictator. The great constitutional dictator was self appointed."

Thus, it should be no surprise, that when Lincoln launched his war against the South, it was a soulless, murderous war, one that in modern day would have drawn a war trial and a hanging. While the Union generally lost its early battles, it spared little thought to the morality of raping and pillaging those areas it could actually hold. When Lincoln found his butcher Ulysses S. Grant and his mass pillager and rapist, William Sherman, blood flowed in rivers, both Union blood in head on steam roller meat grinder tactics and the blood of southern civilians massacred and burned out.

After his March to the Sea, Sherman wrote in his memoirs, Lincoln came to see him. He asked him to tell him stories about the march and laughed with full heart at those of the worst pillaging and destruction of the South. Lincoln the gentle and carrying indeed. This is the same march that saw 2,000 Southern women shipped north into slave labor in Union factories.

In light of all this, General Robert E. Lee, shortly before his death, in 1870, had this to say to the governor of Texas: "Governor (of Texas), if I had foreseen the use that those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse. No sir, not by me. Had I foreseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my sword in my right hand."

Before we finish, there are a few other things that should be brought to light about Lincoln’s "great" works. For example: to pay for the war, Lincoln instituted fiat currency, which was later, after his death, removed. Yes that is directly against the constitution of America, with the 1863 National Currency Act, which also created a central bank. As a supporter of Alexander Hamilton's centralized economy, Lincoln started growing the behemoth that is the United States socialist government. Even the American term "Bombing People Back to the Stone Ages" came into use then, during the murderous siege of Vicksburg by the Union Army and Navy.

But surely, you say, Lincoln did at least one good thing: he freed the slaves. Right? Wrong.

Lincoln in his own words:

Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858:
"I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races - that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything."

Lincoln - Letter to Horance Greeley (a Marxist) editor of the New York Tribune, 22 Aug 1862:
"My paramount objective in this struggle is to save the Union and is not either to save or destroy slavery. If I cold save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it."

Lincoln-Douglas Debates:
"I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between white and black races and I have never said anything to the contrary."

Lincoln - Eulogy of Henry Clay, 1852:
"There is a moral fitness to the idea of returning to Africa her children." In other words, forced recolonization/repatriation to Africa of free and slave blacks from all over the Union.

Lincoln- To Congress 1862:
"I cannot make it any better known than it already is that I strongly favor colonization."

Even the Emancipation Proclamation was a publicity stunt since it freed no slaves in Union States, such as Maryland or New York nor in Union held territories, such as parts of Virginia, Tennessee, the barrier islands of North Carolina. It effected to free slaves, in an independent country, which was busy enough freeing its own slaves as free men in the Confederate Army. An example is that half the Confederate Artillery at Bull Run was black or that 10,000 blacks were enlisted in the Army of Tennessee as rifle carrying soldiers.

So, if President Obama truly means to become America's second Lincoln, what does America have to look forward to? Fear, oppression and dictatorship.

"After being hunted like a dog through swamps, woods, and last night being chased by gunboats till I was forced to return wet, cold, and starving, with every man's hand against me, I am here in despair. And why? For doing what Brutus was honored for. What made Tell a hero? And yet I, for striking down a greater tyrant than they ever knew, am looked upon as a common cutthroat. My action was purer than either of theirs. One hoped to be great himself. The other had not only his country's but his own, wrongs to avenge. I hoped for no gain. I knew no private wrong. I struck for my country and that alone. A country that groaned beneath this tyranny, and prayed for this end, and yet now behold the cold hands they extend to me. God cannot pardon me if I have done wrong. Yet I cannot see my wrong, except in serving a degenerate people. The little, the very little, I left behind to clear my name, the Government will not allow to be printed. So ends all."

Hello Stan,
I really enjoyed reading your blog. I got here because your April 1 column on Obama has been floating around the Internet, and ended in my email box today. It's being sent from on wing nut to the next to say See I told you Obama was an evil socialist. Socialist not "Marxist" is the main expletive that Obama is being attached to by those who oppose and hate him.

So he according to you had a tin ear for diplomacy when coming to Russia. I can believe it. Yet the health care that our congress is trying to push through doesn't come close to the socialist ideal that you hold as model. the French model. My statements truly are steeped in curiosity that you abhor Obama as Marxist, but your own idea of health care in my country, Single payer is anathema. It's socialist, it rations, it gives too much control to the government. Personally I agree with your anti pagan, anti- Darwinian compassionate "State" run plan. I'm confused. Isn't that socialist?

and finally you shat all over our greatest, must beloved president. I claim no monopoly on the truth. But Lincoln saved the country. Now in closing, I really enjoy your blog. It's great to see a view so intelligent and different then I've heard before.

Oh and I've heard the Russian Church persecutes the other Christian churches. But since you are in the true church that's okay right?

peace out. sorry so long.

by the way you're a fascist when it comes to "All comments must be approved by the blog author."

you could always delete the comments later. What a dictator. Not like you're paying for your blog or anything.

More communism should be expected, what else? This place that Mr. Obama came from is one of three seedbeds of communist influence in our not-so-united states that started early in our history (1848). Although I am not a proponent of slavery, this was never the reason Lincoln engaged in the war he did. Northern domination and cultural revolution were the main purposes along with centralization of power. Did not the North start getting hit with the communist cultural revolution straight from the beginning. No freedom of press, speech, religion, no writ of habaeus corpus,the writing of bills of attainder, all those thing the constitution expressly forbids the government from doing, he did. And it has only gotten worse since. Now, in my country we fight over liberal or conservative. These are only adjectives--liberal or conservative what? I am an american and it is arguing over liberal or conservative styled communism. As far as our elected officials are concerned we could throw that rag of a constitution in the trash. They ignore it and plead "living" document, to hide their communism. At least the 48ers had enough guts to admit their convictions even if i disagree. I can respect that, even ifwe came to blows.

I would like to solicit a correction for you-Allan Pinkerton,in your article was born in Scotland, and escaped Britain, wanted for his involvement in "physical force" chartism. He was Scottish. US Steel founder Andrew Carnegie's father and his mothers father were chartists, and Andrew Carnegie, and all were Scots as well. There is no record that either Pinkerton or Carnegie became US citizens. Chartists were the equivalent of British 48ers(revolutionaries of 1848- people act like communism is so new, this is just not so.
