Recommended Reading

Al Benson, Jr., and Walter Donald Kennedy, Lincoln’s Marxists (Pelican) “In 1865, Karl Marx, author of the Communist Manifesto, praised Lincoln as a “single-minded son of the working class.” This book examines why Marx—and other socialists—supported Mr. Lincoln’s War and notes his negative influence on modern society. Firsthand accounts and insight from notable historians shatter […]

Recommended Reading: The Real Lincoln

There are not one, but two books with the same title, I would highly recommend you to not only read, but read slowly, chewing and ingesting each chapter, cover to cover. These two books on Lincoln forever changed the way I viewed academia and it’s version of history, not to mention how I viewed one […]

Honest Abe’s Burgers

Really? Yes really…. Irony: Lincoln was not only one of the most dishonest, corrupt Presidents in the history of the United States, but far from contributing to, or preserving, freedom, he set the precedent for dismissing the Constitution as irrelevant, suspending habeas corpus, and imprisoning American citizens indefinitely without due process. Seriously, they couldn’t find […]

When Government Is Lawless, What Is The Christian To Do?

On January 1, 1863, Abraham Lincoln, thwarted by his cabinet in the desire to compensate slave owners for the loss of legal property under the Constitution, violated the Constitution, by issuing the Emancipation Proclamation. The effect of the act was not to free the slaves, but rather to enslave the whole of American society. Such […]

Must-See Movies: The Conspirator

While an angry nation seeks vengeance, a young union war hero must defend a mother accused of aiding her son in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Directed by Robert Redford, the film stars James McAvoy, Robin Wright, Kevin Kline, Evan Rachel Wood, and Tom Wilkinson.   As most readers of 5ptsalt are aware, I […]

The Nationalist Myth & The Fourth of July

This is a repost that concerns every American. It is the exposing of a myth long lived and which sorely needs to be put to rest; specifically, that on July 4th, American was born as a nation. Folks, that just isn’t true. Unfortunately, the first line of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address, which states: “Four score […]

Worse than Osama Bin Ladin

Abraham Lincoln did far more damage to the U.S. A. than Osama Bin Ladin could ever have dreamt. Osama bin Ladin was responsible for 3000 American deaths. Abraham Lincoln was responsible for over 600,000 American deaths after he raised an army to invade his own country. The astonishing thing is to watch Americans curse the […]

A Sesquicentennial Celebration

You may have noticed recently an increase of civil war related posts here on the blog. There’s a reason for that. This year marks the Sesquicentennial of the war of northern aggression, a far more appropriate label since the term ‘civil war’ is not quite accurately descriptive enough for me, and let’s face it, there […]

Six Myths About Abraham Lincoln

There is a good reason why the Lincoln legend has taken on such mythical proportions: Much of what Americans think they know about Abraham Lincoln is in fact a myth. Let’s consider a few of the more prominent ones. Myth #1: Lincoln invaded the South to free the slaves. Ending slavery and racial injustice is […]

An African-American Icon Speaks Truth To The Lincoln Cult

Since reading The Real Lincoln by Thomas J. DiLorenzo some years ago, I have been amazed at the perpetuity of the myths surrounding Abraham Lincoln. To be quite honest, the mere mention of the man makes me cringe. The atrocities  and war crimes sanctioned by this man and his blatant dismissal of the Constitution and […]

The Case Of Rev. K.J. Stewart

A constitution may be set aside by the political necessities of men in power; houses and towns may be destroyed under military necessity, and vested rights may be disregarded by men who seek to gain or maintain empire for the public good. But no cause can ultimately succeed, whose leaders openly disregard the rights of […]

Independent? Of What?

Just a reminder to you as you celebrate this weekend our nation’s independence from the British: The independence you celebrate we lost in the War of Northern Aggression after President Lincoln raised an army and invaded our own country, to rape, plunder and pillage the farms, families and land of the South in order to […]

The Nationalist Myth & The Fourth of July

This weekend, millions of Americans will gather in stadiums across the country to celebrate a myth – one that has been carefully constructed over many years to elicit the highest levels of emotion and devotion, while just as carefully concealing the historical facts which undermine it. The myth: we commemorate the birth of our nation […]
