Donald Trump: Oil warrior

Donald Trump: Oil warrior

KIRO-FM ^ | April 9, 2011 | Dave Ross

Most of the hubbub over Donald Trump have been about his rebirth as a birther.
"Why doesn't he show his birth certificate?" asks Trump.
And Trump has done his best to find it:

"Trump says that he sent investigators to Hawaii to search for the president's birth certificate, and they're coming up empty handed."

But Donald Trump is about a lot more than the Obama birth certificate:
"Unless we get the oil, I have no interest in Libya," says Trump.

Here's a candidate who is willing to go on CNN and say - of COURSE it's about the oil! You don't get involved in a place like Libya to help a bunch of rebels you don't really know:
"We don't know who's being slaughtered," says Trump. "We cannot be the policemen for the world."
Yes we can't be the world's policeman.
He prefers the Genghis Khan model:
"In the old days when you had a war, when you won the war, you won. If they had oil, if they had diamonds, if they had gold - What's going to happen in Iraq is absolutely amazing, two minutes after we leave, Iran is going to take over the great oil fields of Iraq. If I'm president at the time, Iran is not taking over the Iraqi oil fields, we will."
The Trump Doctrine. Don't just occupy Iraq - colonize it.

I bet he'd also be the first president who instead of pardoning the Thanksgiving turkey, would just chop its head of right there on the South Lawn.

New campaign sets goal of restoration of marriage Ministry leaders say Obama abdicated responsibility by abandoning federal law

New campaign sets goal
of restoration of marriage
Ministry leaders say Obama abdicated
responsibility by abandoning federal law

A new campaign has been launched to restore across America the traditional definition of marriage, and the leaders of several major Christian organizations who are supporting it say they are taking their marching orders from the Old Testament's relatively obscure story of the Tower of Babel.
In Genesis 11, even God was concerned about what the people, who shared a language, could accomplish when they agreed to plans to "build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven," according to the King James Bible.

"And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do," explains verse six. So God decided to "confound" their speech, so that such a project would not be accomplished.

Kenneth L. Hutcherson, senior pastor and co-founder of Antioch Bible Church in Kirkland, Wash., told WND that while rebellious Old Testament people posed a threat to build a tower to heaven, right now Christian people, working together, have the chance to restore marriage, defined as one man and one woman, to the nation. His comments came in an interview where he said it's not surprising that the secular world would try to redefine marriage to include same-sex duos.

How did this happen in America? Read "Sexual Sabotage" for the explanation of the dark secret's of Alfred Kinsey.
After all, the secular world is just acting like the secular world, he said.
But what bothered him was the lack of a defense by Christians of the definition of a family that predates the U.S. law, the U.S. Constitution and even the Founding Fathers by a few thousand years.

Gunny G: Was John Wayne Targeted?

Gunny G: Was John Wayne Targeted?

By Gunny G | January 30, 2009

The Plot To Assassinate General George S. Patton, by Robert K. Wilcox
Excerpt: “Into the Night,” pp. 358-360
Just how bizarre and international Stalin’s plots could become is shown in the recent revelation that American icon John Wayne, the actor, was among his intended victims, according to British film historian and Wayne biographer Michael Munn. In the late 1940s, Wayne, a symbol of American independence and ruggedness, spurred by revelations of communist infiltration into the U.S. government, became an ultra-Right anti-communist. He supported Senator Joseph McCarthy in denouncing communists, while most in Hollywood, where Wayne worked, attacked McCarthy and the blacklisting of Hollywood Leftists which McCarthy was spawning. He was elected president of the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals and spoke frequently at “Crusade for Freedom” rallies where he denounced such films as All the King’s Men, the 1949 Best Picture winner which he felt “smeared the machinery of the country’s government” and would “tear down people’s faith inthe American way.” (11)

According to sources Munn interviewed (British actor Peter Cushing, movie legend Orson Wells, and American stuntman Yakima Canutt, a personal friend of Wayne’s), Sergi Gerasimov, a Soviet film director, was in Hollywood and became aware of Wayne’s activism. Gerasimov returned to Russia to tell Stalin, who took an active part in Russian film making, about Wayne’s crusade and influence in America. Stalin became convinced that Wayne “was one of the greatest enemies to the Soviet Union,” and a major obstacle to world revolution. (12)

In 1983, writes Munn, Orson Wells, no conservative, told him, “I do not know if the name John Wayne was already known toStalin before 1949, but in 1949 he came to hate it. He feared it. He felt that the name had become a major threat to him and his ideals. In Stalin’s warped mind, the Americans had invented some new secret weapon, more subtle than a nuclear bomb, but just as destructive. Stalin was mad, of course should have been put in a straightjacket. Only a madman like Joseph Stalin would have tried to have John Wayne killed.” (13)

General Trump – Leading The Charge Against Dishonoring Our Constitution

General Trump – Leading The Charge Against Dishonoring Our Constitution

Posted on Saturday, April 09, 2011 7:02:41 PM by TLittlefella

There can be no doubt that Trump is the 21st century George Patton in civilian clothes.
General Trump has stepped forward to lead the charge against an apparent nationwide
conspiracy by the brain dead cabbage patch to dishonor and defraud our constitution by
accepting and endorsing a fraudulent president of our United States.
General Trump has amassed huge support from those Americans who long ago
recognized the indefensible fraud perpetrated against America in the 2008 presidential
election. Many Americans previously gave little thought about allegations Obama was
ineligible for the presidency, now those Americans have come to the realization they
were bamboozled by the mainstream news media who skirted around the simple fact
Obama does not have a legitimate birth certificate supporting his claim of U.S.
The news media has used deception, deceit, dishonor, and corruption to hide
the truth from America.

Aside from all the technical proof of Obama’s ineligibility is the simple fact that Obama
has not produced a genuine birth certificate and he has spent millions of dollars in legal
fees defending his self perceived right to hide public disclosure that he does not have one.
Amazingly the conspiracy to defraud our constitution has extended well beyond the brain
dead cabbage patch voter by reaching into the highest levels of our government.
One can offer excuses for the youth of ignorance and the stupor of the aged for their
brain dead cabbage patch votes, but it’s evil politics of constitutional destruction for those
who know better. It is unconscionable that our congress has not held hearings on
Obama’s eligibility.

The Democratic Party has succeeded in creating big government, they are well on their
way to completing their task of creating a welfare state by bankrupting the country, and
now, right before our very eyes, their final assault on our constitution is aided by
apathetic Americans, scared politicians, and a corrupt news media.................more...

Coast to Coast They Hate the Most

Coast to Coast They Hate the Most
 By Daniel Greenfield Full Story
imageWisconsin’s labor vote effort may have failed to displace Prosser, but that’s only one plank of the Democratic program to mobilize their base. So far the theme is labor, women and blacks.

Wisconsin kicked the labor unions into high gear, which is important as it locks down part of a potential swing vote. Now comes rhetoric about Republicans waging a war on women.
There is “a war on women,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says. No there isn’t, but there is a war for the female vote. Hitting Republicans on social services cuts. Putting abortion front and center. New DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz calls Republican attempts to defund abortion ‘a violent act against women’.

According to Congresswoman Slaughter, Republicans were elected to kill women. The rhetoric is not that much more subtle than Schumer repeating ‘Extreme Republicans’ over and over again. But it’s narrowly targeted.

Who is Herman Cain and Why Should Americans Care

Who is Herman Cain and Why Should Americans Care

American Thinker ^ | 4/8/11 | Daryl Mahan

Posted on Saturday, April 09, 2011 12:32:38 PM by justsaynomore

In the coming weeks and months the American public will hear more and more mention of the name Herman Cain as he embarks on a most important journey.  The country he was born and raised in is in turmoil, facing crises of potentially insurmountable proportions on several levels.  Our overall economy is in shambles with the nation's debt level higher than any other nation in recorded history.
Born in Tennessee in 1945, many of Herman Cain's most formative years were during a time when American society viewed and treated its members quite differently based on their outward appearance.  At the age of six, Herman Cain and his younger brother secretly challenged this societal segregation by quite literally testing the waters.  Watching out for the other as he took his turn, they each sampled the water from two public drinking fountains, each specified only for use by one of the two dominant races of American citizens at the time.  Herman Cain and his brother learned in that moment that the separation of the races was baseless.  The water from each fountain was exactly the same; each no different from the other.  The burning question was planted in their young minds: ''What's the big deal?''

By the close of the first decade of this current millennium, American society, seemingly evolved beyond the ignorance that fomented such outward discrimination, elected Barack Obama, born of a Caucasian American mother and a Black African father, to the office of President on the United States.  Obama's ascendancy to that most coveted and most powerful position in the land, upon reflection and rational analysis, was the result of American society's collective guilt and remorse for the decades of disrespect, disgraceful and tortuous treatment of those members reflecting Obama's father's physical attributes.  His ascendancy could not have been based on professional qualifications and grand achievements of his life's work, for while a rational, honest examination of Obama's past reveals abundant charisma, charm, and eloquence of speech, there is certainly no history of accomplishment that would warrant such empowerment.

This is not an examination of Obama or American societal shortcomings.  The aforestated reflection is necessary only to caution that in the upcoming Presidential election of 2012, it is certain that the powers that capitalized on the societal guilt and remorse of the American collective in 2008 will absolutely foment that emotion again should there be a strong challenger to the ideology and re-election of Barack Obama.  As distasteful as it may be, it is a reality that any such challenger, regardless of their personal achievements and political acumen, will have to battle to a certain degree those who view America's exceptionalism and individual freedom and liberties as a threat to the vision of global governance and to the nations of the world dominated by socialist, totalitarian ideologies and dictatorial regimes; the puppet-masters of America's left-wing progressivism and "Race-Bait, Incorporated" segregationists.

But what if an individual who can neutralize that ignorance, and who does have professional qualifications and considerable life achievements to warrant the responsibilities of the office of President of the United States, steps forward?  Someone who is willing to undergo the scrutiny and make the commitments necessary to earn that ascendancy and redirect this great nation back toward a course of prosperity.  Shouldn't that individual be seriously considered?  That individual is Herman Cain..................

Why is the Muslim World So Resistant to the Gospel?

Why is the Muslim World So Resistant to the Gospel? ^ | April 8, 2011 | Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr.,

Posted on Saturday, April 09, 2011 1:24:59 PM by wmfights
The future shape of the world appears to be a worldview competition between Christianity, Islam, and Western Secularism. For Christians, both of these worldviews represent real and lasting challenges to evangelism. Neither of these is a particularly new challenge, and the Christian encounter with Islam is now over a millennium in duration.

Writing over thirty years ago, when most American evangelicals had little knowledge of Islam, missiologist J. Herbert Kane of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School outlined six reasons why the evangelization of the Muslim world has been so difficult. His explanation of “Why the Muslim Soil is So Barren” remains both instructive and important.
1. Islam is Younger than Christianity

Having borrowed from both Judaism and Christianity, Islam “has just enough Christianity in it to inoculate it against the real thing.” As with Mormonism, Muslims claim a later revelation that corrects and supersedes the Bible. This represents a very real challenge to the Christian, who will base the argument for the Gospel on the biblical revelation.
2. Islam Denies the Deity and the Death of Christ
Islam not only denies the deity of Christ, it finds the idea abhorrent. “If a missionary but mentions the deity of Christ the fanatical Muslim is likely to spit on his shadow to show his utter contempt for such a blasphemous suggestion.” Furthermore, the Qur’an denies that Christ actually died on the cross, thus taking away the very act of our atonement. “There appears to be no way around these two obstacles,” Kane lamented. “The Christian missionary can find many points of similarity between Christianity and Islam, and certainly he will want to make full use of these; but sooner or later he must come to the central theme of the gospel — the cross. At that point he runs into a stone wall. He can remove many offending things, but he can never do away with the offense of the cross. That and the deity of Christ are hurdles that can never be removed.”

3. Islam’s Treatment of Defectors
“All religions, including the broadest of them — Hinduism — look with disfavor on the devotee who changes his religion,” Kane advised. “But it remained for Islam to devise the Law of Apostasy, which permits the community to kill the adherent who defects from the faith.”
For Islam, “conversion is a one-way street.” Even when death is not a real threat, losing the bonds of community and family are huge costs.
4. The Solidarity of Muslim Society
Even where Muslims are not in a majority, such as in Western nations, they often concentrate in specific areas or communities where this solidarity can be approximated.
Under such an arrangement, efforts by Christians to evangelize meet a unified resistance, and a decision to leave Islam can be construed as an unpatriotic act, tantamount to rejecting one’s nation and people.
5. The Public Practice of Religion
Often overlooked by many Christians is the fact that a faithful Muslim demonstrates that faithfulness in a public pattern of prayers and observances. A convert who ceases these observances becomes immediately evident. This system of public prayer and ritual represents a powerful support for Islam and a powerful deterrent to conversion to any other belief system.

6. The Memory of the Crusades
As Kane explains, “To Christians in the West the Crusades were a bad dream, of which we have only the faintest recollection; but to the Arabs they are the greatest proof of the Christian hatred for Islam.” Christians bear the burden of a long and intensely bitter Muslim memory. Though atrocities were common on both sides, the atrocities committed by Christians were uniquely a repudiation of central Christian teachings.
In the mind of many Muslims, the Crusades feel like a living memory. To many within the Islamic world, Christians remain Crusaders, and evangelism is just another way of continuing the crusading mission.
Professor Kane’s breakdown of these obstacles is not only interesting and helpful, it also serves as a reminder that these issues are hardly new. At the same time, Christians must evangelize, no matter the obstacles to Christian witness.
Christians must remember that the Holy Spirit can break down the greatest wall of resistance and the Word of God is, as He says, like a hammer that shatters a rock. Dr. Kane’s arguments help us to understand the challenge, but were not meant to suppress evangelism. To the contrary, he wanted the church to be better informed as we fulfill the command of Christ.

ACORN, Obama Behind Plan To Dump Garbage On Speaker Boehner’s Home?

ACORN, Obama Behind Plan To Dump Garbage On Speaker Boehner’s Home?

David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | Matthew Vadum

Posted on Saturday, April 09, 2011 1:36:10 PM by Michael van der Galien

The Democratic Party is officially encouraging supporters to go to Speaker John Boehner’s house and dump garbage on his lawn in order to intimidate him into rubber-stamping President Obama’s destructive spending spree. Such protests can easily turn violent, especially with the tense, hyper-partisan atmosphere on Capitol Hill right now.
Is it a coincidence that not long after longtime ACORN operative Patrick Gaspard took over as executive director of the Democratic National Committee the DNC is planning destructive ACORN-like protests? Not bloody likely. As chief of the DNC’s day-to-day operations, Gaspard runs Organizing for America, the Saul Alinsky-inspired organization created to wage war on American democracy. Gaspard’s fingerprints are all over this. It’s what the former Obama White House political director does for a living.
But how do we actually know this is a DNC-approved event? Because the event advertised on Facebook is organized by longtime DNC employee Jonah Goodman.

Goodman is listed as a member of the DNC network on his Facebook page. According to Facebook rules (under the heading “How do I join a supported Facebook network?”) this means he is an employee of the DNC. Facebook instructs users as follows: “To join a work network, you need to have a work email address from a supported company. This will put you on a network with your coworkers.”

Rep. Allen West is against the bipartisan budget deal between Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and the Obama administration.

West (R-Fla.) told The Hill that $39 billion in cuts is insufficient. Asked whether he was pleased with the agreement on policy riders, West responded, "It's all about the money."
West, a freshman who is popular with the Tea Party, said he is a firm "no" on the measure, which will be voted on next week.

As a longtime News Corp.-watcher, Prince-Talal-watcher, Talal-News-Corp-watcher, I'm not saying, I'm just saying:
Wednesday, March 30, 2011: James Murdoch, youngest son of Rupert Murdoch, "cemented his position as his father's eventual heir to run the entertainment conglomerate when he was elevated this week to the No. 3 position in the company's executive ranks." To help things set better, he's moving from London to New York.
April 4, 2011: Bill O'Reilly says Pastor Terry Jones "has blood on his hands" after Jones burns a copy of the Koran in Florida and Muslims in Afghanistan murder people.

April 4, 2011: To discuss the mayhem and murder that was the Afghan Muslim response to the burning of a copy of the Koran in Florida, Sean Hannity scheduled Zuhdi Jasser, whose "private" sharia is so irrelevant to classical Islam that his commentary is endlessly confusing at best, and Ahmed Bedier, longtime spokesmodel for a constellation of organization related and linked to such jihad groups as Hamas and Hezbollah,
April 6, 2011: Fox News and Glenn Beck agree to "divorce."
What connects these disparate incidents? Beside a short time-frame, I don't know. I do know James Murdoch is known for his trash talk about Israel (sez the Palestinians "were kicked out of their f— homes and had nowhere to f— live"), his green enthusiasms (News Corp. is the first entertainment conglom to be "carbon neutral") and for being a former hip hop impressario (wow; not my dream date). The 38-year-old is also very, very close to 56-year-old Prince Talal, and was Talal's choice to succeed Murdoch (chalk one up for Talal).

Not one to let politics to get in the way of profits, I am sure, it is also the case that as a Talal-pal (not to mention everything else), James is likely to keep certain things out of the way of Fox politics. I would imagine that Hannity's recent maiden voyages into "sharia" talk (bet that's all over with) and Beck's ongoing explorations of sharia and Islam don't fit his bill. That stuff's been buttoned up for ten years now on Fox; no reason to spoil a good brand now with free inquiry into the ideology that drives our mortal enemies....

John Boehner has just given away the Republican victory of 2010 at the bargaining table. Like the proverbial Uncle Sam who always wins the war but loses the peace, he has unilaterally disarmed the Republican Party by showing that he will not shut down the government and will, instead, willingly give way on even the most modest of cuts in order to avoid it. He now has no arrows left in his quiver.

Having failed to stand firm for just $61 billion in cuts in a budget of $3.7 trillion, how can we expect him to stand firm over the debt limit extension or the 2012 budget? We can’t. The excellent budget proposals of Paul Ryan are no more than a pipe dream now. Boehner has He sold us out now and he’ll sell us out again.
It is the duty of every Republican Congressman to vote no on this terrible deal. It violates our campaign promises to the American people. We promised $100 billion of cuts and we delivered $38 billion ($62 billion on a twelve month basis). In the Republican House’s first real test out of the box it has broken the promise over which it was elected. Only in Meat Loaf’s music is “two out of three not bad.”

This concession makes it clear that:

* Obamacare will not be defunded. * The EPA will not be blocked from regulating carbon. * The NLRB will not be stopped from forcing an end to secret ballots in union contests. * Medicaid will not be block granted and turned over to the states. * Welfare spending will not be cut nor work requirements imposed. * The FCC will not be stopped from regulating talk radio.
In short, we have accomplished nothing by our hard work in 2010.
Except we have learned a lesson.

And the lesson is this: We need to purify our party and purge it of the likes of John Boehner and all those Congressmen who vote for the budget sellout. The Tea Party must take the lead in this purifying fire. We must not let the RINOs win! will post prominently (and permanently) the names of all GOP freshmen who vote for this rotten deal. It will be in a column headed: THESE ARE THE SELLOUTS. Check it out and back their primary opponents!

Recently I have been receiving a lot of e-mail pointing to the birth certificate Lucas Smith had supposedly retrieved under great personal danger from Kenya as the definitive proof Obama was not born in the United States. Tracing them back they seem to come from one email server, although under different accounts.
Of course I seen the Smith document and read his affidavits submitted to the various courts by Orley Taitz.

Am I impressed? No. Am I as skeptical about this birth certificate as I am about Obama's Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth? YES!
Why would I be willing to dismiss this as a forgery? The answer is in the questions not answered about this so called Kenyan smoking gun.
Was the Lucas Smith Birth Certificate (LSBC) ever tested? Not to my knowledge and trust me if it was people would have sent me the proof.

Did Lucas Smith ever prove he was in Kenya? No, he alludes to having receipts documenting his stay in Kenya, but nothing has been released to the public,
1. No, US Passport showing entry or exit visas for Kenya.
2. No, airline tickets showing his name to Kenya
3. No, hotel receipts showing his name or date
4. No, restaurant receipts,
5. No, credit card receipts that could cross reference any other receipt he could offer.

 - Philip V. Brennan  Saturday, April 9, 2011 imageI have long had a sneaking admiration for an English nobleman – not something to which most of those of us of Irish ancestry would ordinarily tend to admit.
One of my heroes is Lord Melbourne, who at the age of eight, to the dismay of his parents, had not uttered a single word.
That ended one night at a dinner party when the lady seated next to him at table asked “Little boy, why do you not speak?”
His young Lordship looked at her and said his very first words – “Because Madam,” he said,  “I have absolutely nothing to say.”
Some years later he observed “The Irish are a basically honest people; they seldom speak well of one another.”
He was right on target.
In that tradition allow me to speak critically of a onetime fellow Long Islander, the loquacious Bill O’Reilly, a Nassau County native but, as he once told me, a onetime resident of neighboring Suffolk County, L.I.,  that his Dad was among my fellow Brooklyn Prep alumnus, although he was a few years ahead of me at the Prep.
He went into the Navy in WWII and I soon joined the better part of the U.S. Naval Service, the Marine Corps. (I had to get that in. It’s obligatory Semper Fi).
I must admit that on the single occasion Bill and I spoke – when I was doing a profile of him for Newsmax -  Bill was both gracious and friendly.  That having been said, allow me to have at him. Albeit gently and admiringly.
In simple terms, Bill O’ tends on occasion to be what we used to call a smart Aleck. I attribute that failing to the unfortunate fact that he graduated from Harvard University, not a fit place for any proud Mick. 
He could, instead,  have attended one of the many fine N.Y.C. Catholic colleges such as Manhattan College where most of my father’s family, including my grandsire matriculated and my late Uncle Joe, a Basketball Hall of Famer, once coached.
Bill’s smart-alecky attitude was on display when he took on “the Donald,” as his ex-wife calls Mr. Trump. He appears to have been offended by the Donald’s expression of doubt about Barack Obama’s true birthplace, noting as Mr. Trump has, the President’s adamant refusal to reveal his birth certificate.......................

Another Big Lincoln Lie Exposed by Thomas J. DiLorenzo (Deport Black People?)

Another Big Lincoln Lie Exposed

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
Recently by Thomas DiLorenzo: Paul Krugman’s 'Civil War' Fantasies
I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way 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.

~ Abraham Lincoln, Debate with Stephen Douglas, Sept. 18, 1858, in Abraham Lincoln: Speeches and Writings, 1832-1858 (New York: Library of America, 1989), pp. 636-637.

These are the words of the real Lincoln, who was as much a white supremacist as any man of his time. In fact, he was a much more extreme white supremacist than most, for he advocated "colonization" or the deportation of black people from America for his entire adult life. As soon as he entered politics in the early 1830s he became a "manager" of the Illinois Colonization Society which sought to use state tax funds to deport the small number of free blacks living in Illinois out of the state (the state amended its constitution in 1848 to prohibit the immigration of black people into the state, an amendment that Lincoln supported). 

Lincoln followed in the footsteps of his idol, Henry Clay, who was the president of the American Colonization Society, and quoted Clay often on the subject. During his presidency he established a colonization office in the Department of Interior and funded it with $600,000, while working diligently to plan on deporting black people to Liberia, Haiti, Jamaica, Central America, the West Indies – anywhere but the U.S.
These historical facts have long presented a problem for the purveyors of the comic book/fairy tale history of Lincoln that has been taught to Americans for generations. For they suggest that, rather than being a racial saint, as the comic book/fairy tale version of history contends, the exact opposite is true. The Lincoln cult has mostly covered up these truths by seeing to it that they rarely, if ever, make it into the public school textbooks. But just in case the truth does seep out, the Cult has concocted several excuses, "justifications," and rationales for Lincoln’s extreme racist language and actions. 

One excuse that is associated with Princeton University historian James McPherson is that "Honest Abe" was lying when he spoke of colonization in connection with emancipation (as he always did) so as to soften Northern opposition to emancipation. This is called the "lullaby theory" among Lincoln cultists. Lincoln himself never said any such thing; McPherson simply fabricated the story out of thin air. 

A second excuse is an equally unfounded theory that is not based on anything Lincoln himself ever said. It is a speculation that, sometime in 1863, Lincoln experienced some kind of divine transformation and was no longer the extreme racist and white supremacist that his speeches had established him as being for his entire adult life. Lincoln cultists naively contend that because Lincoln quit making speeches about colonization, he must have abandoned the idea.
Of course, politicians always do their best to keep the public in the dark with regard to their political machinations; they do not make public speeches announcing every bit of their strategies and conniving. It is not unusual for a politician to keep his plans to himself, and this is true of Lincoln as much as any politician. The divine transformation theory is based on an extraordinarily naïve view of the political world.
Both of these theories have been demolishd in a monumental new book entitled Colonization after Emancipation: Lincoln and the Movement for Black Resettlement, by Phillip W. Magness of American University and Sebastian N. Page of Oxford University. Based on newly-rediscovered documents in the American and British National Archives, including letters signed by Lincoln himself, these researchers have established that Lincoln continued to pursue colonization right up to the days before his assassination, when he discussed plans with General Benjamin Butler to deport the freed slaves. There was no divine transformation; and McPherson’s "lullaby" is in reality a fake alibi. 

Magness and Page meticulously document how, during the last two years of Lincoln’s presidency, work on various colonization plans "progressed . . . often aided by the president’s direct encouragement and approval" (p. 10). Lengthy discussions took place with the British and Dutch governments, which were negotiating on behalf of business interests in their own countries that were experiencing labor shortages in such places as British Honduras, Guiana, and elsewhere.............

As I continue to sacrifice my Fourth Amendment rights while I take off my shoes and subject myself to being x-rayed and illegally molested by TSA officials at the airport, I am constantly reminded of the threat that violent jihadists pose to Americans everywhere. However, not all jihadists are tasked with the commission of perpetrating mass murder upon the citizens of Israel and America. Many jihadists have altered their.....

When the intervention in Libya began, President Obama insisted no American ground forces would be involved. On Thursday, the U.S. Africa Command combatant commander speculated that troops may be needed, even if he considered it a bad idea.
In testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Army Gen. Carter Ham discussed the increasingly complex situation in Libya, explaining that the war had reached a point of stalemate. Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s offensive had largely been halted, but rebel forces have no chance of toppling him from power. Asked if U.S. ground forces might be needed to tip the balance, he said, “I suspect there might be some consideration of that.”

The general added his personal view that it probably would not be “the ideal circumstance, again for the regional reaction that having American boots on the ground would entail.”
The main problem with the Libyan war has been a lack of conceptual unity. Coalition military performance has been exemplary, as one might expect. Imposing a no-fly zone over Libya and conducting air strikes on Col. Gadhafi’s offensive ground forces come as close to a routine military operation as any such complex and violent effort can be. Mr. Obama could well have claimed “mission accomplished” when the White House blandly announced the advent of Operation Unified Protector, which continued the effort originally known as Operation Odyssey Dawn but under NATO leadership. The administration’s real “mission accomplished” was making sure Mr. Obama abandoned his global leadership role as quickly as possible.
America’s rush to the door is the root of the current problem. Mr. Obama’s original concept for intervention was little more than a bumper-sticker slogan, “protect Libyan civilians.”

Re “Donald Trump Gets Weirder,” by Gail Collins (column, April 2):
Even before Gail Collins was with the New York Times, she has written nasty and derogatory articles about me. Actually, I have great respect for Ms. Collins in that she has survived so long with so little talent. Her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written many bestsellers) is not at a high level. More importantly, her facts are wrong!
...I don't need Ms. Collins's advice. There is a large segment of our society who believe Barack Obama, indeed, was not born in the United States. His grandmother from Kenya stated, on tape, that he was born in Kenya and she was there to watch the birth. His family in Honolulu is fighting over which hospital in Hawaii he was born in-they just don't know.
He has not been able to produce a “birth certificate” -merely a totally unsigned “certificate of live birth”-which is of very little significance. Unlike a birth certificate, a certificate of live birth is very easy to obtain. Equally of importance, there are no records in Hawaii that a Barack Hussein Obama was born there-no bills, no doctors names, no nurses names, no registrations, no payments, etc. As far as the two notices placed in newspapers, some feel the grandparents put an ad in order to show that he was a citizen of the U.S. with all of the benefits. Everybody, after all, and especially then, wanted to be a citizen.
For some reason, the press protects President Obama beyond anything or anyone I have ever seen.
Open your eyes, Gail, there's at least a good chance that Barack Hussein Obama has made mincemeat out of our great and cherished Constitution!

The difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats want to spend us into oblivion while the Republicans only want to spend us into purgatory.
