The Lincoln Legacy
Abraham Lincoln
22 February 2009

.

If the Old South and the Confederacy are indeed gone with the winds of Abraham Lincolns War of Northern Aggression, then look to the Divine Winds of God%u2019s justice, for the vindication of the Confederate Cause…

Very few people in history has achieved the almost divine persona as has Abraham Lincoln, a persona, which permeates modern perceptions of a man that was far from being a Saint, but is rather more properly defined as a despot, thus he was in life a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Quite clearly his place in history is solely related to his having violated the very constitution, he was sworn to protect and defend. One can read a politically correct biography of Abraham Lincoln, and it will be found to praise him for attributes he never possessed, as well as for successes never achieved. He like his modern counterpart, are identical twins of the socialism agenda, and both are viewed like unto a false messiah.

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

When someone is accused of a crime, the law under which he or she is accused is quoted, as well as the nature of the offense; this same principle applies to Abraham Lincoln. The United States Constitution makes no reference to secession under any type of phraseology or synonym. Take note of the ‘Tenth Amendment’ quoted above and read carefully what it says, the power to either prohibit or approve of secession has never been delegated to the United States, therefore the entire issue is reserved “to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The Tenth Amendment is the most ignored and least utilized portion of the U.S. Constitution, even by U.S. Supreme Court, which itself routinely usurps powers never delegated, overturning State Laws and entire portions of their Constitutions as well as their laws. An excellent example in modern times is the issues of abortion as well as separation of Church and State; again, powers never delegated the United States. Therefore these and other powers are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people!

It should be remembered that during the Abraham Lincoln Administration, the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments had not been made part of the U.S. Constitution; there was at the time only 12 Amendments. Individuals were considered Citizens of their respective States, and only in that respect where they U.S. Citizens. The Fourteenth Amendment deals primarily with Interstate Commerce; however it also transfers citizenship from the jurisdiction of the States to that of the Federal Government.

The Constitution, which originally protected the citizens from an overpowering Central Government, as a result of these three Amendments, now empowers and protected the Central Government from its own citizens. Thus the intentions of the Founding Fathers were reversed! However Abraham Lincoln had none of these Amendments at his disposal, and even if he had, they were added to the U.S. Constitution only as a result of force, which makes them self nullifying.

Therefore when Abraham Lincoln raised and army to overthrow the secession of the Southern States, thereby subjugating the Confederate States of America, which was created as a result of its newly ratified Constitution, he violated his Presidential Oath. The Confederacy on the other hand fired on Fort Sumter out of the sovereign right of any nation, to secure its territory against foreign occupation. Those who had occupied Fort Sumter were offered generous terms, including assistance if needed!

If a foreign power were to maintain a military installation on Governors Island in New York Harbor, the United States would take whatever action necessary to have it removed, up to and including the use of armed force? The Confederacy did precisely what any sovereign nation would be compelled to do under similar circumstances, as would the United States. Abraham Lincoln knowing the position, in which he was placing the Confederacy, provoked them to fire the first shots, so as to further justify his War of Northern Aggression.

William E. Gladstone, British Prime Minister from 1868-1894, and prominent politician from 1809-1898 stated; "Jefferson Davis and other leaders of the South have made an army; they are making, it appears, a navy; and they have made what is more than either, -- they have made a nation. We may anticipate with certainty the success of the Southern States so far as regards their separation from the North." Prime Minister Gladstone

understood the right of the South to secede, and form a new nation"
Those who believe this is merely anti-Lincoln rhetoric let them read the U.S. Constitution for them selves, preventing or approving of secession, under any circumstances, has not been delegated to the United States. The Tenth Amendment specifically states how to deal with powers not delegated under the U.S. Constitution; they are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. This same principle applies to any and all issues, including retaining a State in the Union by force of arms.

The Union that Never Existed

Abraham Lincoln’s stated purpose for violating his Oath of Office and using force to return seceded States to the Union is based upon a falsehood. The Union prior to the ‘Civil War’ was never indivisible; therefore there was no indivisible Union to preserve. Abraham Lincoln, in using military force to achieve political ends, added validity to, of all things, the Communist Manifesto! This is not merely rhetoric, inasmuch as the age in which he lived was filled with numerous examples, Bismarck of Germany with his Blood and Iron, Lenin in Russia as well as Garibaldi in Italy, are examples of coercion and consolidation of otherwise independent political entities into a single Union.


The Abraham Lincoln of modern historical revisionism is a man that never existed; the real Lincoln is an individual that if President today would likely be impeached, and very well charged with Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes. The U.S. Congress never authorized the war he instigated, let along the aggressive invasion of a sovereign nation, foreign to his own. He suspended habeas corpus, imprisoned thousands of his own fellow citizens without the benefit of a trial, for nothing more then having opposing his policies.

All means of mass communications available in his day were censured, including telegraphs and newspapers with numerous editors, journalists and publishers being jailed. The railroad was nationalized; he confiscated privately owned firearms, used troops to force the outcome of elections, as well as having arrested duly elected members of the State and Federal Congress. This he did in order to create an indivisible Union, which amounted to a consolidation of the sovereign States into what was and remains by definition, an empire.

The reinvented Abraham Lincoln of our time is a myth of the historical revisionists, in his lifetime he was a fraudulent, devious and despotic politician who used whatever cause was convenient, to justify and unjust War of Aggression. He himself stated “If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save the Union by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slaves, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps save the Union.”

Adding to his fraudulence was his own claim that he had taken an oath to preserve the Union, when he had taken no such oath. Lincoln had shrewdly made his Emancipation Proclamation the enshrinement for using armed aggression to achieve his political objectives, whereby the heretofore none existent indivisible Union, at any and all cost, had to be preserved. In following the Lincoln Doctrine, after the wars end, the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution was literally passed by force of arms.

We cannot use the word ratified in this case, since ratification requires actions by the sovereign States, acting freely. Thus every amendment added the U.S. Constitution and every piece of legislation and Court Adjudication based upon these amendments are directly or indirectly, a result of force having been used. “Any people anywhere being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one which suits them better.”

These are the words of Abraham Lincoln earlier in his political career, which certainly demonstrates his original support for the right of States to secede. Either his former support for secession was merely a rouge, to gain votes or else he legitimately changed his thinking in order to justify his aggressive invasion of the Confederacy, and his scorch earth policy. ”I do solemnly swear {or affirm} that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”


To which was added by George Washington, and continues unto this day: “so help me God!” We must ask ourselves, where in that oath or in the U.S. Constitution is it written, preserve the Union. That Abraham Lincoln would engaged in a Northern War of Aggressive, which cost the lives of over 660,000 and injured 1,200,000, is not only atrocious but despotic, particularly since there had never been such an entity as an indivisible Union.


The concept of an indivisible Union comes from the cliché known as ‘Manifest Destiny’, which was conceived by President Andrew Jackson, who was the 7th President from 1829 to 1837. President James C. Polk was the 11th President from 1845 to 1849 and it was he who enshrined the doctrine of ‘Manifest Destiny.’ Abraham’s Lincoln the 16th President from 1861 to 1865, cupped the two doctrines, ‘Manifest Destiny’ and the ‘indivisible Union’ into a despotic act of tyranny.

The horrendous butchery, rape, pillaging, destruction and slaughter, committed on his watch were justified by Abraham Lincoln’s twisted doctrines, doctrines not found in the U.S. Constitution. The commonly held belief that the ‘Civil War’ was fought to end slavery is also a ruse for increasing Federal power; the British, French, Portuguese, Venezuela and Columbians all held slaves, but emancipated them without war. The financial cost of freeing the slaves would have been a fraction of the cost of waging a war!

Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes

War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity involve waging an aggressive war, and committing acts which are not justified by the necessities of war. Such acts include but are not limited to the vile treatment or deportation and enslavement of civilians and soldiers alike. The Union Army and Navy, served under Abraham Lincoln’s command, he being their constitutional Commander in Chief, therefore he held personal responsibility for their conduct in war, notwithstanding he approved of their atrocities.

His approval included the killing of unarmed civilians on a massive scale, the wanton pillaging, as well as the destruction of homes and property, including entire villages, towns and cities. The Nuremberg Trials after World War II has served as a measuring stick and means of categorizing War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. Given the same type of trial as was conducted at Nuremberg Germany, Abraham Lincoln as well as many of his Officers and Enlisted men, would have been found guilty.

The mere threatening, waging, planning or preparing for an aggressive war is an atrocity and constitutes a violation, let along the raping of Southern Women, theft of their property and burning them out of house and home. Confederate Soldiers were given a choice, swear allegiance to a hostile foreign invader and conqueror or else face execution; large numbers refused and were either given a firing squad or the hangman’s noose.


Additionally far to many Confederate Soldiers were not even given the choice, but were tricked into surrendering under the false pretense of fair and equitable terms, then once they had stacked their arms, these soldiers were cut down where they stood. The gullible masses, which today swallow the revisionist history of that great and terrible war, cannot begin to comprehend the evil of the ‘Civil War Yankee Soldier’ or of their military and civilian leaders.

The Character of the Man

Despite the almost angelic and messianic persona, bestowed upon the memory of Abraham Lincoln, his day to day conduct and speech would have earned him an ‘X’ rating in today’s world. His use of profanities, vulgarities and gestures was a pervasive part of his mannerism, in other wards he warranted being restrained in polite company. Had a video been made of his day to day activities, it could not be shown in today’s Elementary and High School Classrooms. Such a video would need to be censored, which would require so much cutting, the substance would be lost and the video rendered useless.

In our time there was a Commercial Airline, home based in a country not allowing the depiction of sex, violence and vulgarity, which was asked by a passenger why they did not show a certain popular Hollywood movie. The stewardess remarked that the movie in question is so filled with vulgarity, profanity, raw sex and violence, to remove these scenes, means there would no longer be enough of the movie remaining to make a complete story.

Abraham Lincoln fits in this type of pagan category; however, he would be welcomed in today’s Hollywood, being a vulgar, profane socialist, believing in the same principles as did karl Marx. Among his endured principles is Lincoln’s own advocacy of using force to achieve political ends, preferring the bullet box over the ballot box. Lincoln even received a congratulatory message from Karl Marx at the end of the Civil War and prior to his death, for using Marxist methods in dealing with secession.

However more then anything, Lincoln is not a hero nor a martyr, but rather an icon who has been enshrined as a god like figure, not because of his accomplishments in life, but because he represents unbridled dictatorial power. Visitors to London England at Parliament Square, Calton Cemetery Edinburgh Scotland, as well as in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Washington DC will find monuments to Lincoln. The one in Washington DC depicts an oversize Lincoln seated on a throne; the structure is called a temple!

Adorning each side of Lincoln’s throne depicts birch rods bound together with a red leather cord; these are the Roman Aces, which was the ancient symbol of Roman unity and imperial power, and the supremacy of the national state. Lincoln being seated upon his throne as well as the throne itself is both fashioned like unto that, which was once found in the Greek Temple of Zeus, showing him seated upon his throne. The semblance of the enthroned Lincoln to the Greek Temple of Zeus cannot be denied and is not by happen-chance.

Abraham Lincoln was aware that the Confederacy under Jefferson Davis had a proposal on the table to free the slaves through reimbursement of slave owners for their investment, thereby enabling them employ hired laborers. Further Lincoln knew that it would work, and that the x-slaves would be educated into freedom, thus allowing them to become constructive citizens. The war could have been avoided, the lives of more then 660,000 war casualties and 1,200,000 seriously injured, could have been honorably avoided.

All that was required was for Lincoln to speak to Jefferson Davis, a diplomatic feat which he refused to consider to his arrogance, choosing rather to lay waste the 13 States of the Confederacy. It is indeed interesting that the same symbol the Roman Aces, was also the symbol used by the Ascinmo Party of Benito Mussolini’s Fascist Italy. Had Lincoln lived, what was his intention in regards to all those freed blacks? This so called great emancipator panned to ship them to Central America, South America or Africa in a mass exodus!

Lincoln’s iconic status comes from the fact that he won the war, otherwise had he lost, does anyone really believe he would be granted the same god like persona. Lincoln in his life did not share the views of modern blacks, he was against their voting or sitting on juries, and he was completely opposed to the notion of equality, as we understand it today. Additionally he is presently beloved by atheists and transcendentalist, each including a vast number of Christians believe him to be one of their own.

Abraham Lincoln, in his lifetime was not known to profess belief and faith in Christianity or the Holy Scriptures, and he himself never made such a claim, save for the sake of political convenience. In today world he would no doubt side with the socialist, then claim to be a populist, while his oratory would lead people to believe he was all things to all people. How one personifies Abraham Lincoln depends upon whether it is his private, public or political life, wherein we speak, for each of these represent three different sides of his character.

Lincoln the Idol and the Icon

In 1865 Abraham Lincoln refused to sign the Geneva Convention, which defined and outlawed under international law, the commission of War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. Lincoln believe his Presidential powers allowed him to do whatever he wished in the conduct of war, including those things, which were outlawed by the Geneva Convention. Accordingly his Generals were known to have committed all manner of crimes, including mass murder, torture, and using Southerners as Shields in battle.

His own Prisoner of War Camps were in fact torturer chambers; among them can be named Camp Douglas in Illinois and Elmira in New York, both of which made the famous Andersonville Prison in Georgia pale by comparison. In Abraham Lincoln mind, it was victory at any cost and the end justified the means, which is itself the mindset of tyranny and despotism. One can only imagine Lincoln’s reaction if the five New England States would have decided to seceded, rather then those of the South.

Lincoln seems to have never appreciated the noble principles of the Colonial Revolution, particularly in the Declaration of Independence, wherein it states: “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends {speaking of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness} it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” It was not only lawful and constitutional for the Southern States to secede and form a new nation, but these rights are endowed by our creator.

The question must be asked of those who venerate and lifts up Abraham Lincoln likes unto a god; what part of “Thou shalt have no other gods, before me” do you not understand? What portion of “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image,…” confuses you? Any reading of the Holy Scripture will reveal the truth of this matter, to those who would but accept, whereby those who bow down to Abraham Lincoln, in spirit if not physically, have made of him a false god.

The Golden Opportunity

When Abraham Lincoln chose to go to war with the Confederate States, rather then to negotiate peace terms; he surrendered a golden opportunity and unleashed a scenario that is still playing out in our time. History teaches us some things and in this case we can be certain, the victor of that horrible War of Northern Aggression will become the vanquished, all in due course of time. The longer it takes the harsher the price for having committed their atrocities, Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes, against the Confederate people and nation.

Imagine for a moment that Lincoln had taken a different course! Under this scenario he quietly arranges a very discrete meeting with President Jefferson Davis, maybe in a back country home, perhaps half the distance between Washington and Richmond. Each man is then escorted by the same number of military guards, otherwise each comes alone. They both lay down their own terms, for the avoidance of war.

These men go back and forth, finally agreeing upon suitable terms, which cause the United States and the Confederate States to come together like unto brother nations, as allies and friends. Both Presidents could have walked away from such a meeting having saved face! U.S. Troops would then have been peacefully withdrawn from the Confederate States and its territories, carried out with pomp and pageantry. The world would have been awe struck by the United States having divided itself into two distinct peoples and nations, without the horrors of war. A living example would have been set for all times!

The United States under the Lincoln Administration could have provided an example for the entire world to emulate, whereby the unalienable right of any people to decide for themselves, what manor or society, government and nation shall be theirs, would not be infringed upon. How many wars in the far off corners of the world may not have happened is not known, but you can be certain, Lincoln’s course of action, gave aide and comfort to the likes of karl Marx as well as other despots, which would follow.


Had Lincoln negotiated peace terms with the Confederacy, people as well as commercial traffic would still have passed between the 48 continental States unhindered. The United States would have been to small a nation to police the entire world and the United Nations, if established at all, would find it necessary to bow to the sovereignty of nations. The prolonged Indian Wars would have been diminished if not prevented by Confederate offers of Indian Statehood, whereby the Indian Nations could control their own destiny.

Lincoln’s Legacy to the 21st Century

”If you consider yourself a Confederate and a Southerner, look to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Southern Cross and to our beloved song Dixie with a renewed vision, for the time of vindication is nigh at hand!"


The current number of states drafting resolutions in their state legislatures is at this point in time 21 and counting! Once drafted, voted on and approved, these resolutions are then naturally sent to the Yankee Empire’s modern day criminals in Washington D.C. This is from the Arizona bill, "...if the President or any other federal entity attempts to institute martial law or its equivalent without an official declaration in one or more of the states, without the consent of that state...individual members of the military return to their respective states and report to the Governor until a new President is elected...”

The 21 States {abbreviated}, which have or are to date in the process of passing sovereignty resolutions are: AZ, AL, AK, AR, CA, CO, GA, HI, ID, IN, KS, ME, MI, MO, MT, NH, NV, OK, PA, TX, & WA. It is truly believed the 2009 General Elections may well turn out to have been the last Presidential Elections conducted within the 50 states of the Yankee Empire. It appears that all is beginning to fall into place as indicated in the “
The Prophetic Countdown" and will begin to unfold this year, 2009.

Something monumental is about to happen very soon, the states are somehow prepared to follow the wishes of "We the People.” Additionally, there are Secessionist Organizations in over 30 states, and Obamamania is expected to back fire, in the near future. Some look upon him, as like unto the first truly American Dictator, that being Abraham Lincoln. It is indeed ironic that the comparison is true to form!

Just as Lincoln was the President, which forced the Confederacy into occupation by the Empire, the current President and ‘Fuhrer’ of the Yankee ‘Reich’ Obama may unknowingly be contributing to its rebirth! Let all these things, be in accordance with the will of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen? Nonetheless the conclusion of these things has been addressed in the Holy Scriptures, where it states; “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man {which includes Empires} soweth, that shall he also reap.” {Galatians 6:7}.

The Yankee Empire, which has sown to the wind, shall very soon reap the whirlwind of God’s justice! Why is it so easy for modern man to worship an icon and an idol, while at the same time, declaring the Almighty God in Christ Jesus, the Holy Scripture and Pray, to be unfit for the instruction of our children?

Annotation

The entire phenomenon surrounding the granting of a false messianic status to Abraham Lincoln is understandable from the perspective of atheist, agnostics, secular humanist, liberals and a host of other pagans. But it is totally outside the understanding of God fearing people, as to how any true Christian, let alone an intelligent, educated, Christian, Minister of truth, could possibly lift up a man such Abram Lincoln.

A man that unless he experienced a deathbed, heart felt repentance has in all likelihood been roasting in a much hotter place then we have available to us here upon this earth. Those who cherish the truth, should at the very least be amazed, that Abraham Lincoln has been turned into a ‘cult messiah.' Why is it that those truths regarding this despotic man, cannot somehow find its way into the textbooks of our schools, whereby our children might learn the lessons of history?

Abraham Lincoln’s apostles profess to have a clear understanding as to the cause of the ‘Civil War’ in regards to why he chose war over merely letting the Southern States go free, as is their unalienable right. Yet knowing these things makes them all the more guilty, since either they are purposefully falsifying the historical record or else they are willingly ignorant of what actually occurred.


Early in his administration, Lincoln stated he would ONLY authorize force to collect the taxes, as well as the duties that the states "owed" to the federal government. The Southern States during the years preceding the ‘Civil War’ paid approximately 3/4ths of the expenses to operate the federal government, so Lincoln felt that he could not afford to let them go in peace, otherwise who would pay the bills.

A Lincoln advisor asked him straight forward, why he couldn’t just let the South go? Lincoln replied, "I cannot let them go, for who would then pay for the government?” His long time friend and law partner, Thomas Herndon, is quoted as saying that Lincoln "lived and died a deep-grounded infidel.” The presumption that he was a Christian or even a moral man deserving of veneration, is absurd!


It was further indicated that Lincoln mocked Christianity, in particularly the Virgin Birth of Christ, as well as the notion that he {Jesus Christ} arose from the dead, after His crucifixion. Abraham Lincoln has been literally deified, which is why the truths of the real Lincoln have never been added to school curriculums? Should the truth about Abraham Lincoln ever be widely known, John Wilkes Booth would as a result become the greatest a hero in U.S. History.


The History Channel, while airing a program regarding Lincoln's death, during the later part of February 2009, stated, the Confederacy mourned his loss! There is no doubt there were those who felt sorry for him and his wife, but mourning him never took place! This would be like unto the French or the Hungarians mourning Hitler's suicide, after he had occupied their country and butchered their people!

It is an easy thing to make a hero out of a villain; Hollywood does it all the time, but to whitewash a despot into appearing like a Saint is to deny the self-evident truths of history. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” {Proverbs 1:7}. If one cannot discern secular things, how do they expect to rightfully divide the word of truth; the debased character of Abraham Lincoln is completely self evident to those having the fear of God.


"Crimes against humanity: murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation, and other inhumane acts committed against civilian populations, before or during the war; or persecutions on political, racial or religious grounds in execution of or in connection with any crime within the jurisdiction of the Tribunal, whether or not in violation of the domestic law of the country where perpetrated."
