Springfield, Illinois, June 16, 1858
MR. PRESIDENT AND GENTLEMEN OF THE CONVENTION:
If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could better judge what to do, and how to do it. We are now far into the fifth year since a policy was initiated with the avowed object, and confident promise, of putting an end to slavery and brutality in Iraq. Under the operation of that policy, that brutality in Iraq has not only not ceased, but has constantly augmented. In my opinion, it will not cease, until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. "A house divided against itself and infiltrated by a foreign power cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved -- I do not expect the house to fall -- but I do expect it will cease to be ruled by a foreign power. It will become all one thing, or all the other. Either the opponents of foreign subversion of Congress will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall become fully aware of it and then rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike all powerful in all the States, old as well as new -- North as well as South.
America was a free society.
When it was set up the safeguards put in place at that time to protect it were adequate for that time.
The modern media age with determined foreign wanting to subvert America from within was not foreseen.
Foreign controlled funding for the President and all members of Congress was inconceivable and therefore not guarded against.
Congress should control the army and navy but the Liberty incident, when Egypt was three minutes from being nuked by American forces, without the president’s approval, shows that the American armed forces were already, at that time, under some form of control by Israel.
To test this theory and see if it contains any truth is easy.
Look at the fear generated in Hillary Clinton or any other member of Congress or the Senate when and if they speak about Israel’s Middle East policy (which has now become ours, somehow) or the Israel genocide in Palestine.
They shake with fear when they mention Israel.
One word from Israel and their careers are finished, kaput and out the door.
This is too much power for one nation to have and is profoundly undemocratic.
Who will now preserve, protect and defend America with all in Congress and the president himself afraid of and in the power of Israel.
There is an elephant in the room but we are not allowed to say so or even mention it.
Goebbles Murdoch sees to that.
