Republican President Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday

Happy Birthday to Republican President Abraham Lincoln!

As we all know, no longer is this day honored in the many states with a declared holiday. Lesser men have decided to combine Honest Abe’s birthday celebration with the commemoration of George Washington’s birthday. They have renamed it and re-purposed it as President’s Day, which is this coming Monday.

Honest Abe was the very first (and let us fiercely hope not the last) Republican president.

Abraham Lincoln is regarded as one of America’s greatest heroes due to both his incredible impact on the nation and his unique appeal. His is a remarkable story of the rise from humble beginnings to achieve the highest office in the land; then, a sudden and tragic death at a time when his country needed him most to complete the great task remaining before the nation. Lincoln’s distinctively human and humane personality and historical role as savior of the Union and emancipator of the slaves creates a legacy that endures. His eloquence of democracy and his insistence that the Union was worth saving embody the ideals of self-government that all nations strive to achieve.

This would be a good place to repeat sentiments that one of our regular commenters recently posted:

-The Democrats fought for slavery.
-The Republicans abolished slavery.
-The Democrats founded the Clan.
-The NRA taught freed slaves marksmanship so they could defend themselves.
-The Republicans introduced the 1957 Civil rights act.
-The Democrats defeated the 1957 Civil rights act.
-The Republicans introduced the 1964 Civil rights act.
-With a veto-proof majority against him, LBJ signed it. … So……

The Republicans are Racist & the Democrats are saints ???

Today we’re going to give our first illustrious Republican president his due:

Happy Birthday, Honest Abe!

  1. He’s a bit craggy but all in all not a bad looking guy, after all. Nice eyes. 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday Mr. President. 🙂

    • Imagine if he can do that for our government. OUT with the waste and IN with efficiency and frugality and NOT waste. Wow. That place is gorgeous. Great taste that man has, too.

  3. Well, Trump isn’t scared. Whatever else he may be, he is not easily intimidated. ….4 SURE!!! …^^^^

    I just bumped into a long Trump commercial on YouTube, parading as a promo for his big Boeing 757. It’s worth watching, if only because it is uncensored by anybody but Trump. Even in the GOP debates, we get only sound bites. This curious little promo is a glimpse into his business life, and it’s interesting in that way. It’s Trump filtered only by Trump, which is very different from Trump filtered by Media Cartel. If Trump is elected, this may be how he will try to govern.

    • Can you believe the media tying themselves into knots because The Donald dropped the F-bomb? How ridiculous and WHAT HYPOCRITES. Don’t they love Queen Bey and her ilk? How many times do they drop the B-word and the M-F-word, not to mention the N-word, in their “songs”?

    • I saw Cavuto once nailing one of those brain-dead millennials to the wall. She said “the rich” would pay for Bern’s programs, but Cavuto pointed out that even if you tax “the rich” at 100%, there’s not enough money to cover even the current benefits we pay out. The ONLY way the Bern can do this is to tax the middle class into submission. I like that idea of asking people with Bernie Sanders bumper stickers to give you their car! Funny.

  4. Like him or not, Trump has awakened a pro-America Sleeping Giant, while on the other hand, Sanders has awakened sleeping Tyrants. The Sad irony is that if Bernie supporters were to Get what they Wish for and he is elected president, they & the rest of US will in fact “Feel the Bern” & end up with a Nasty (& possibly incurable) case of VD (Venezuela Disease).^^^

  5. Damn ……it feels good to be a Clinton.
    A shameless politician plays her cards right.
    Got a crew for the fights on the airwaves.
    Lap dogs in the press keep their mouths tight.

    Cause a Clinton never needs to explain what.
    Why it is what they’ve done or with who.
    A real Clinton knows they’re entitled.
    You don’t get to know what they do.

    What difference does it make for a Clinton.
    What’s loaded in some fat oppo file.
    A Clinton plays the victim for promotion.
    A Clinton kills it off with a smile.

    Damn it feels good to be a Clinton.
    A server full of secrets ain’t no thing.
    Damn it feels good to be a Clinton.
    Nothing ever hits with a sting.

  6. o/t
    Drip that water tonight.
    Don’t let the pipes freeze. 😯

  7. Really sad news to report. Supreme Court Judge Scalia has died.
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/02/breaking-supreme-court-justice-antonin-scalia-dead/

    “Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.

    Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa.

    According to a report, Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body.

    Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia, of the Western Judicial District of Texas, was notified about the death from the U.S. Marshals Service. …”

    May he rest in peace. “Natural causes.”

    “Apparent” natural causes. Are we doomed?

    Barry has been SO upbeat, despite his losses at SCOTUS. And here they were fixing to rule on his unconstitutional power grabs.

    • I had hoped that it was a joke, but apparently not. So sad on so many levels that I cannot even breathe or contemplate this. Autopsy? If so, will we LEARN any truths?

      Want to read something totally racist? http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2016/02/i_can_t_hate_donald_trump_i_do_hate_the_republicans_who_ve_enabled_him.single.html

      A sample:

      “The Scots-Irish or “American” whites who see Trump as their champion are profoundly different from the metropolitan whites who dominate the upper echelons of U.S. society—so much so that the convention of lumping them together as “white” detracts far more from our understanding of how they fit into our society than it adds to it. J.D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy, a forthcoming book on the place of Appalachian whites in modern America, estimates that roughly one-quarter of whites belong to the Scots-Irish tribe that has embraced Trump. If we were to separate out these Americans as a race or ethnicity unto themselves, Vance writes, we would finds rates of poverty and substance abuse that would shock our national conscience. But we don’t generally collect detailed statistics on the Scots-Irish. We don’t have a clear sense of how their labor force participation or disability rates compare to those of other Americans, including other white Americans. And so their experiences and their collective traumas blend into whiteness, where they can be safely ignored. Whites are privileged, after all. …”

      Imagine something to that effect being written about any other race or ethnic group in the USA, especially imagine a book that points out the shocking rates of poverty and substance abuse among blacks.

  8. ~ World News» ~ Barack BHO? Usurper Obama @ the Telegraph

    Barack Obama has done Zero ….. for Black People
    Black people have had it worst under America’s first black president,
    despite all his promises.
    No wonder voters are warming to Donald Trump’s bluntness !!!!!!!

  9. The old expression, “the genie is out of the bottle,” comes from Arabic folklore, surrounding the devilish character known as the “Jinn” who grants wishes in exchange for the soul …… of the seeker.

    Western leaders have let the “Jinn” out of the bottle, & like Pandora’s box, the resulting chaos will not ….. be contained.

  10. 25 % ..or MORE! as…false information keeps US DUMBED DOWN!

  11. If there are any campaign staff members lurking around here, Please take Note that when your candidate addresses the American people, they need to be Aware of the Real numbers from Shadow-Stats, not the Fantasy …numbers from the Obama administration, because what Americans are truly experiencing is what’s on those charts. This is one of the reasons that any support of amnesty or the h1b visa is a guarantee for electoral disaster for any candidate who supports them in any way, the real economy is a horrible mess & we simply can’t handle the legal immigration levels in place let alone millions of illegals, h1b cheap labor or the TPP or other free-trade deals.

    The Chamber of Commerce, Bill Gates, Sheldon Adelson & Mark Zuckerberg live in their protected fantasy-lands …….of privilege & try to purchase candidates, with GOPe RINO traitors like Sens. McCain, Graham, Hatch, Ayotte, Kirk, Flake, Rubio, Haley, Alexander, Corker, Collins, McConnell, Hoeven & Wicker happily selling out.
    But even otherwise solidly conservative candidates need to be more careful not to be Snowed by Obama’s False Numbers when putting together their stands. ……YEP ….LIES!!! 4 SURE ….

  14. ~ Josh Forte • 2 days ago …^^^
    I still think there’s a possibility that he wanted to DIE & choose suicide By cop. With his past record & the crime he Just Committed, he was probably looking at a Long Prison Sentence. He was shot with bean bag guns & given Every Opportunity to DROP his>>>>> weapon & lay down. It seems like he made a choice NOT to. Sad when any young man’s life ends, especially in this way. ….foolish foolish …. ENDING

  15. judge antonin scalia passed away this morning or today!!!! It’s all over the news. Have you guys reported on it and I just missed it?

  16. 01:57 @ the Telegraph.co.uk…. O’s Jump-ing UP & DOWN!!!

    Obama speaks about Scalia’s death
    Barack Obama has said HE will BE submitting.. a nominee.. to replace
    Justice Antonin Scalia, who died today:

  17. heather ~ February 13, 5:54 pm @drkatesview…. PONDER THIS!
    A terrible thought just crossed my mind about the death of Scalia — it was Hillary just last week that said if she wins the potus she will appoint Obama to the bench.

    They are saying he died of natural causes. He was quail hunting came back and died—that leaves me to believe fool play took place.

    • yeah, those hunting trips don’t sound too healthy……remember Cheney’s hunting trip a few years back?
      And how is Obama going to rule ….as Soetoro or Obama. Seems like losing your law license would be a bit of a barrier to that appointment.

      • alfy … yeah, Cheney…that cracked me UP! glad I was not drinkin’
        anything special … the news can be a source …of fun some days!

      • You’d think so but recently I read that even though all have been lawyers, you don’t have to be either a CITIZEN or a lawyer to become a SCOTUS judge. Isn’t that convenient and what a convenient topic for news PRIOR to this news about Scalia. All the stars right in alignment. Evil any way you look at it. Whether he gets special help, if you know what I mean, or arranges it all himself.

        • I know he doesn’t have to be a lawyer but the fact that he was and he can no longer practice law is another matter. That should be a question when VETTING him in congress. Vetting, hmm, not likely.

          • Good point, but like you said. Vetting. Not been done before. Not for him. What struck me is how the article I read pointed out that you don’t even have to be a CITIZEN! Sounds like they had someone in mind.

    • Yep. Just another interesting topic of conversation and so convenient, too, almost as if somebody knew something in advance.

  19. LACONIA, N.H. — FEB. 6, 2016 ~ Just NASTY MOON CHILD!

    Sitting on his campaign bus – laptop, turkey jerky, & coffee all nearby
    Jeb Bush was befuddled over his campaign’s failure to capture more attention from the news media.

    “I could drop my Pants,” he said in an interview.

    “Moon the Whole Crowd. …….

    Everybody would be aghast, except the press guys would never notice.”

    Bush is entering the final days of his last stand, & hints of exasperation
    are leaking through his cheerful, stoic demeanor.

  20. STAND UP TRUMP ….MAKE AMERICANS ….RESPECT YOU &
    THE REST of the BOO BABIES… this PIT BULL FEST GETS REAL
    OLD …. MAY … OUR BEST MAN >>> WIN BIG <<< GO TRUMP USA
