Transcript of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address:

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives, that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate – we can not hallow – this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

AMEN TO THAT... THE BRITISH ARE COMING!!!... THE BRITISH ARE COMING!!!... but they're disguised to look like muslim anti-american dogshit...

Of course, he would. Anti-Christian bigotry is pervasive in the liberal world that worships Karl Marx.

Obama is Anti-Christian, Anti-American Both were taught bu his parents to him!! Obama worships a FALSE god named allah!! There is NO god named allah, it was made up by the LIAR Muhammad 1400 years ago!! Muhammad got his information for the EVIL Koran from Satan ( the devil )!!  Obama is a DEVOUT evil Islamic Muslim!!

How can he render praise to God when he thinks he is the All Powerful and above him.

US COMBAT VETERAN: Vietnam, '68-'69; 228th Avn. Bn. (ASH), 1st Cav. Div. (AM).

May the Great Spirit watch over all us and guide our steps through all eternity.

He will be in good company of Stalin, Hitler, and Satan, Live well and Burn in HELL my lord.

Why is this bozo even allowed to recite it? He doesn't belong here, he doesn't come from here, he doesn't like it here, or anyone else here.

We all heard him when he did it and most are appalled.   Obama is a traitor..............

We are one Nation under God,  and O cannot stand it.

AMEN!! Obama-Nation is a TRAITOR who is Anti-Christian and Anti-American!! Obama-Nation was Taught by his parents to be Anti-American!!

WE ARE ONE NATION UNDER GOD;

 

I pledge allegiance to the Flag  of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands; one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

day after day this POS does something that simply amazes me to the point where I figure I am having a bad dream, but then I come to the realization I am awake. This wonderful piece of work was written by President Lincoln not by the asshat Oblunder. Oblunder is a coward without honor, no one expects much from him. He is only there because of the money spent to elect the dirt bag. This allow for the people with the backing monies to control the country. Think for a second, has he done anything worth while? No, he has failed in every attempt to do anything. He is just a face in the white house. Now look at who has gained by his power. The amount of money just spent of his two elections would  lower the debt quite a bit. We all know he is not eligible to be in the white house, but no one will do anything. I figure it is because of the dozens of other Republican skeletons rattling in the closets. No one has the guts because of their shenanigans and the ones who are free of wrongdoings do not have the power or money. This should be called Oblunders version of the Gettysburg Address. Mr Lincoln was a believer in his religion and so was most of the country. Most were comfortable with the moral aspects of, God. I am and I know many who were not Christians felt the same way. 

I have no interest in Obaboon representing this nation because he hasn't the skill to run a public toilet, he is a usurper, a liar and a cheat and he is making us the laughing stock of the planet. The worst is how he is spending money that we do not have and at some point we will have to make arrangements to pay the bill. It is at that point where we are going to have a huge problem. The cuts that will come at that time will cripple the entire USA. This is the legacy we will be leaving our kids and grandkids. Well I could go on and on, but you all know what is going to have to happen if we are to ever catch up on our national debt. After this idiot gets done with his presidency no one worth a salt is going to run for that office because it does not mean what it use to. It is very sad. I want to see this poser get run out of office, tar and feathered and sent back to where he was a resident. This is pretty much the last straw, if people can't see what he is after changing president Lincoln's famous speech at Gettysburg then they are simply blind as a bat.

What do you expect from a guy who studied and taught Rules for Radicals which is dedicated to satan. 

He can try.  But he nor I nor you can remove GOD from this country no matter what this "President" has to say!

ALERT ALERT

The Fall Of Fake News!! Quiet Shake-Up At MSNBC After Station Hemorrhages Viewers Following Mueller Debacle 

Reports are surfacing about a quiet shake-up of personnel at MSNBC after the cable news station lost more than 30% of their audience after the Mueller debacle.

Apparently MNSBC doesn’t think their financial woes are newsworthy given that they didn’t run any breathless stories about their own failings.

News of MSNBC’s collapse can’t come as a surprise to insiders who undoubtedly are fully aware that their audience no longer trusts them.

One source familiar told Mediaite the changes came amidst mounting complaints from NBC News chief Andy Lack about a dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May, ratings for the network in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo were down 32% year over year.

MSNBC viewers were asked: How much do you agree that MSNBC regularly reports made up or fake news about Donald Trump and his administration?

The responses were devastating! While 35% or respondents agree that MSNBC pushes Fake News, only 24% disagreed. That’s a ratings death sentence!

What do you expect from a channel that boasts disgraced liar, Brian Williams, and race pimp, Al Sharpton?

MAJOR SHAKEUP AT MSNBC - Ratings crater after Mueller Report Debacle! 

MSNBC Shakeup: Jonathan Wald and Dan Arnall Take Dayside

MSNBC quietly implemented a sweeping shakeup in programming this week, Mediaite has learned, appointing SVP of programming and development Jonathan Wald and MSNBC executive editor Dan Arnall to lead...

Flashback: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Plummet To Yearly Low

MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow brought in her worst weekly ratings of the year last week.

Her show last week averaged 2,324,000 viewers, with an average audience of 337,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, both of which mark yearly lows for the liberal television host, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maddow first saw a dramatic drop in ratings following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Her previous low for a week in 2019 was the last week in March, the first full week after Mueller submitted his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr, where she averaged 2,458,000 viewers with 392,000 in the demo.

She spent two years dissecting every aspect of the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election. The night Mueller submitted his findings to Barr, Maddow appeared to hold back tears over the fact that neither the president nor any family members were indicted.

Compared to Maddow’s low ratings last week, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, whose program is often the most-watched among all cable news shows, averaged 3,108,000 viewers with just under half-a-million viewers in the key demographic.

She also nearly tripled CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s weekly ratings. His program only had 880,000 viewers with 225,000 in the key demo.
