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.

How can those SS tht. protect him not comit when they hve. 2 b around him, someone needs to grow some and do what needs 2 b done.

does it surprise anyone else that a treasonist MUSLIM who is trying to save his own ass from being culled BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE...and FROM THE PEOPLE that he omitted "GOD" from the Gettysburg Address??? ... why did he recite it in the first place???  HE DOESN'T BELIEVE IT!.... he's just stalling his impeachment by doin' a little "patriotic" buddy hustling. If a dumb-ass believes in him then they need to be sent to a mental hospital and prayed for... because NO MEDICATION will fix STUPID!!!!

Obama is a muslim by birth.  His parents hated America.  He was taught to hate America.  Reads the Koran.  Obama wants to transform America with the help of the ACLU.  All prayers at the service academy had been forbidden.  The courts have ordered the military that bibles are no longer allowed in the military services.  Nor can they talk of Jesus or God between themselves.  If they do they will be given a dishonorable discharge from the military.  Over 50 military chaplains have been been discharged because they talk of the Lord Jesus Christ in Iraq and Afghanistan.  They lost all their military benefits.  There are some lobbying groups that are trying to get Congress to have their military and retirement benefits returned to them.

Right after he was sworn in a President-either the 2008, or 2012, he would not salute, or hold his hand over his heart when the National Anthem was played.  I believe he sat down instead.  He did not wear an American Flap lapel pin at the time.  Since then he now wears one in his lapel.

God Bless America, The Land of the Free

Norman, I believe there is a picture of him Mooshell covering their heart with the wrong hand. Das Fuhrer and his handler Mooshell are two of the biggest freaks and phonies that has been our misfortune to know. Those two with the help of Socialist (oops, Democrats) and the RINOs in the House and Senate are out to destroy the beloved God fearing country.

I also flew in Vietnam.  I was fighter pilot flying the F-104 Starfighter.

Regards I like the Great Spirit phrase.

Thanks, Norman, and Welcome Home. Brother, when were you there? I've always wondered how maneuverable was the "Chief"?

Thank you for your service sir, but there is also a video of him and his wife at the ceremony for the Flag  that is handed over to the military for disposal, and she is seen saying to the Pres...." All this for a damn flag?" and he half smirks and says " Yes" Nice from the Pres. and the First Lady, wouldn't you say ????

I know Eileen, I've seen it and it damned near made me slam my fist through my Computer screen, however, I didn't. That's when I start telling my fellow Vets about that video and boy were they POed. We've got to get rid of these Socialist and their Cartel.

As to my being a Vet I'd do it again. That oath that I took upon enlisting (1963) was not for just my term of enlistment it was for the rest of my life.

May the Great Spirit watch over you and yours and guide your steps through eternity.

No Soul. . . . . Obama's ex Secret Service Agent reiterated what most of us suspected all along - that he's simply a mouthpiece / actor for "the Communist" who groomed him for the Presidency !!! All Obama's actions are scripted to schmooze the American people, all the while he and his minions are intentionally undermining everything we hold "Near & Dear" about our beloved country !!! Hopefully, this imposter's supporters are beginning to see that lawless Chicago / Communist tactics were used to ensure he would win his elections - his first election, his entire background was sanitized to mask his true identity and his second election, everything from the jobs report, the IRS, Benghazi, Obamacare and election fraud was used to ensure his second win !!! Obama's obvious distain for our country should be an immediate concern for every American, to which the only remedy can be is Impeachment !!!

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet, and probably Obama and his advisers are waiting until everyone has had their say, so they can, pretending to be scholars, get one of their apologists, or self-appointed historians,  on the Government News Agency (CNN + CBS + ABC + NBC) to say, VOILA, Obama gave the correct "version" after all, and his critics are idiots and bigots.  But here is what happened.  After LIncoln wrote the draft of the Gettysburg Address, he showed it to Secretary of State William Seward and asked his advice.  Seward had been an early doubter of Lincoln's abilities of, but as time went on became his most faithful and fervent supporter.  Lincoln valued his input.   Seward recommended the inclusion of the words "under God,"  and Lincoln agreed.  And that's the way the Gettysburg Address was given and has been accepted to be ever since---until now, apparently.   Now, to accommodate his anti-God bias, and the anti-God bias of a great many of his followers, Obama seems to be introducing a new proposition into historical analysis: the 1st draft of a speech is the "real one."   That is foolish.   Seward also suggested the famous concluding "better angels"  paragraph of the First Inaugural.   Does that mean that the "real version"  did not contain this section?   Speeches by political figures always go through several drafts.   That should be no surprise to Obama or anyone else.   Presidents seek input from their advisers.   At least in those days, Presidents wrote their own speeches, and did not regurgitate pablum manufactured for them by professional speech-writers.    I wonder how Obama would handle a recitation of Lincoln's Second Inaugural, in which most of the whole speech is an explication of the purposes of God.  I don't care what degrees Obama claims to have, his speaking ability, writing ability, and analytical ability does not rise to the average of most 5th graders.

Racism -> Emergency Medical Doctor Rails Against Whites: “White People Can Be Exhausting” – ‘Racism Towards Whites Doesn’t Exist’ 

 Esther Choo (pictured above), an emergency medical doctor and professor in Oregon, took to Twitter to rail against white people and after getting called out for her racism, she asserted that it’s impossible to be racist towards whites.

According to Choo’s bio, she’s an emergency physician and associate professor at the Oregon Health & Science University.

Choo is the daughter of Korean immigrants and uses social media to talk about racism and sexism in healthcare, according to her bio.

“White people can be exhausting. Just an observation,” Choo said in a tweet on Friday.

When she received backlash for her racist tweet, Choo continued to taunt and disparage whites.

“Observation #2: white people are going to prove my point on this very thread,” Choo said responding to the backlash.

She also bragged that Twitter took her side when people reported her tweet.

“Observation #3: when people try to convince Twitter that white people are experiencing reverse racism, Twitter understands that is not a thing.”

Twitter may not have a problem with racism against white people, but what about the medical community?

Dr. Choo received huge backlash on Twitter.

This is coming from an Emergency Medicine Physician who is considered a "leader" in her field. She's scheduled to be a speaker at the American College of Emergency Physicians in October. She runs a website called FeminEM prompting Feminist causes in EM and a racist.

Pretty racist statement, TBH.

Protected groups being immune to being called out for blatant bigotry is exhausting, just an observation.

Replace “white” with any other race, and Dr. Choo would be out of a job.

Update: Dr. Choo deleted her racist tweets and set her Twitter account to “private” after she received backlash from hundreds of people.
