CONSERVATIVE QUOTE: "Our kids are no longer taught about patriotism, morality, honor or self-reliance. They’re not taught economics. They’re not taught about the Constitution. The boys aren’t taught to be men and the girls aren’t taught to be women. In fact, if you find kids who know anything about these subjects, it is almost certainly because their parents bent over backwards to jam that knowledge into their heads." - John Hawkins
TRUMPISM "[D]efined as secure borders, economic nationalism, interests-based foreign policy, and above all judging every government action through a single lens: does this help or harm Americans." - Journal of American Greatness
THIS DAY IN HISTORY
1861 - President Abraham Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus.
Did the President violate the Constitution by arresting and holding 13,000 assumed ‘secessionists’ and ‘Copperhead Democrats’? Yes and no...And he should be thanked for doing so, because America was at war, the worst kind of war - A civil war, and drastic times called for drastic measures.
During this time Congress wasn’t in session and wasn't returning until July. In this situation Lincoln took the responsibility of assuming all powers not delegated in the Constitution, including the power to suspend habeas corpus.
Lincoln rightfully believed it was worth it 'to violate this portion of the Constitution to save the Constitution as a whole'...The Great Man took the bull by the horns and placed the future of the Union in his own hands. We should all be thankful the right man was in the right place at this horrible time.
