The Seditious Hypocrisy of The Republican Party

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness.

“Abraham Lincoln was a big supporter of the “colonization” of former slaves. During the Lincoln-Douglas debates in 1858 he said, “If all earthly power were given me, I should not know what to do as to the existing institution. My first impulse would be to free all the slaves and send them to Liberia — to their own native land. But a moment’s reflection would convince me that, whatever of high hope there may be in this, in the long run, its sudden execution is impossible.”

MOSCOW — It’s a far cry from Stalin’s gulag, but the guiding principle of the Russian penal colony — the destination of two members of punk band Pussy Riot — remains the same: isolate inmates and wear them down through “corrective labor.”

Did you know that Abraham Lincoln had a plan to ship all Black American -to New Guinea and Liberia? Where’s Liberia?

When I awoke about 5:00 A.M. I decided to post a Welcome Home Brittney message. I made coffee, and turned on T.V. to catch John Bolton suggesting he is going to run as a Republican for President of the United States. Is he going to be my opponent in the primaries? In minutes, John is all flustered, he looking like a angry caterpillar in an evil Disney cartoon about a crazed teenager. He has been asked about Trump demanding the Constitution be suspended. Bolton insists this will not affect his run, because he owns a/the “Republican Philosophy” as put forth by “Goldwater and Reagan”. What happened to – Lincoln and all those black slaves he freed? What became of the PHILOSOPHY behind that? Didn’t Moses say to the Pharaoh..

“Let my people go!”

Perhaps the Christian-right can help John fashion a new Republican Philosophy along the lines of setting people free – to replace the idea American Women do not own complete freedom over their bodies, which might entail being kidnapped by Russian police and taken to ‘Killer Camp”.Did you read about the Chinese Police station is America?

I was going to leave Brittney Griner out of all this Nasty Intrigue, but this woman was HELD PRISONER in a gulog in Russia. Let’s see if I can find where – on a map. It appears members of Pussy Riot spent time in the same Prison Colony, and give Brittney a heads up. After seeing a video of Cossacks whipping Pussy Riot, Four years ago, I turned Victoria Bond and Starfish Christling into Lesbians. I knew I forfeited a pay day, but as a radical writer and artist, I reused to be a hypocrite – like all the Republicans who allowed Governor Rick Perry to defend the Confederate flag, but, threw Brittney the bird, and with vile hatred – left her to rot in Putin’s prison – for not saluting the flag! Neo-Confederates took over the Republican Party, co-founded by my kindred, John Fremont.

When President Obama was elected, Kevin McCarthy met in a Washington Steak House with other Republicans to PLOT how to undermine the presidency of a Black President. Does Kevin see Biden nd Harris as an extension of Obama – who was not allowed to stay in Blair House?

Steve Bannon said he “quits” when he saw Trump’s trading cards that are DEVOID of the carefully constructed LIES that the Republican Party represent the BEST religious and family values any party can offer – excluding Lincoln FREEING BLACK SLAVES!

Trump was a former Partying Liberal and New York Playboy – before he took the offer to change his skin. He knows THE PARTY IS OVER, and he wants to go out MAKING BIG BUCKS. In this, he is Nero playing his fiddle, while Rome burns! Trump played……The Nero Card!

“Frankly Scarlet – I don’t give a damn!”

John Presco ‘Republican Candidate For President’

Matthew 23:27 ESV / 5 helpful votes 

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness.

The Associated Press reported today that Perry has consistently fought against efforts by the NAACP and other organizations to take down plaques and other monuments commemorating the confederacy throughout his career in Texas politics.

“Although this is an emotional issue, I want you to know that I oppose efforts to remove Confederate monuments, plaques and memorials from public property,” Perry wrote to the Sons of Confederate Veterans in a March 2000 letter obtained by the AP.

Perry has drawn consistent praise from the organization — and hosted a benefit for them in 2005. 

At first, we thought organized Republican recalcitrance against the president started in October 2010 after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) famously said, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” Then came Robert Draper’s book, “Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives,” this spring. As the Huffington Post’s Sam Stein reported in April, the book reports on a dinner of leading Republicans held the night of Obama’s inauguration.

For several hours in the Caucus Room (a high-end D.C. establishment), the book says they plotted out ways to not just win back political power, but to also put the brakes on Obama’s legislative platform.

“If you act like you’re the minority, you’re going to stay in the minority,” Draper quotes [Rep. Kevin] McCarthy [R-Calif.] as saying. “We’ve gotta challenge them on every single bill and challenge them on every single campaign.”

And Stein highlights this useful passage from Draper’s book:  

The dinner lasted nearly four hours. They parted company almost giddily. The Republicans had agreed on a way forward:

The news that American basketball player Brittney Griner had arrived in the IK-2 penal colony in Mordovia, also known as the Russian “land of prisons”, left locals rather unmoved.

The double Olympic gold medallist was handed nine years in prison in August for drug possession and trafficking over possessing vape cartridges with a small quantity of cannabis oil.

Griner maintains she was using it to relieve pain from injuries with her doctor’s permission, while her supporters say she is a geopolitical hostage.

“We usually get detainees deemed ‘particularly dangerous’ here,” said ex-convict turned taxi driver Vitaly Doyne, 48.

Doyne, who spent six years in a penal colony in Mordovia, sais he was “surprised” that a famous athlete had been sent in “such a dump”.

There are around two dozen prisons in Mordovia, a land of snowy forests and swamps around 400 kilometres (250 miles) southeast of Moscow.

Vitaly said all the prisons of the regions are — unofficially — classified as “red”, which means they are managed by the guards themselves and detainees acting as agents.

Republicans and right-wing media figures have found a litany of reasons to be mad about the release of WNBA star Brittney Griner, who was freed in a prisoner swap Thursday after nearly a year in the Kremlin’s clutches.

Much of their rhetoric centers on the bigoted assertion that Griner ― a Black, gay athlete who has been vocal about police brutality and racial justice ― is anti-American for being outspoken in politics, and therefore unworthy of rescue by the Biden administration.

“I wonder if Brittney Griner will sing and stand for the National Anthem now that the United States has compromised national security to free her?” Tomi Lahren, a prominent Fox News personality, tweeted, adding in a bizarre jab about women’s athletics: “I guess it pays to be a whiny celebrity who plays sports (even if no one watches).”

People Die”: Brittney Griner Handed 16 Hour Warning by Ex-Inmate

The Russian feminist protest and performance art group, Pussy Riot, has openly supported the release of WNBA star, Brittney Griner recently. Formed in 2011, the protest group has been raising its voices against the autocratic practices of the Russian government over the years. As a result, some of the Pussy Riot’s members had to spend time in Russian penal colonies for speaking out against the government. Recently, an ex-inmate from the protest group, Nadya Tolokonnikova, gave some insight into the horrors Griner could face in the penal colonies. She also warned BG about the forced labor camps, where the inmates have to work for about 16 hours a day.

MOSCOW — It’s a far cry from Stalin’s gulag, but the guiding principle of the Russian penal colony — the destination of two members of punk band Pussy Riot — remains the same: isolate inmates and wear them down through “corrective labor.”

Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova will have to quickly learn the inner laws of prison life, survive the dire food and medical care, and risk bullying from inmates either offended by their “punk prayer” against President Vladimir Putin or under orders to pressure them.

“Everyone knows the rule: Trust no one, never fear and never forgive,” said Svetlana Bakhmina, a lawyer who spent three years in a penal colony. “You are in no-man’s land. Nobody will help you. You have to think about everything you say and do to remain a person.”

The motivations for the members of the American Colonization Society varied widely. At best, they were abolitionists who genuinely believed the only way to correct the wrong of slavery was to return those forced into bondage to a country of their own. At worst, they were alarmists who feared that the freed slaves, if liberated, would slaughter their former slave masters and eradicate the agrarian way of life.

On either side, there seemed to be the view that former oppressors and the oppressed would never live in peace. Few took greater exception to this than freed slave Frederick Douglass. On Jan. 26, 1849, on the front page of The North Star, an anti-slavery publication, he wrote:

“For two hundred and twenty-eight years has the colored man toiled over the soil of America, under a burning sun and a driver’s lash — plowing, planting, reaping, that white men might roll in ease, their hands unhardened by labor, and their brows unmoistened by the waters of genial toil; and now that the moral sense of mankind is beginning to revolt at this system of foul treachery and cruel wrong, and is demanding its overthrow, the mean and cowardly oppressor is meditating plans to expel the colored man entirely from the country. Shame upon the guilty wretches that dare propose, and all that countenance such a proposition. We live here — have lived here — have a right to live here, and mean to live here.”

Despite these protests, the colony of Liberia was founded and, if Lincoln had his way, there would be more “Liberias” to come.

Abraham Lincoln was a big supporter of the “colonization” of former slaves. During the Lincoln-Douglas debates in 1858 he said, “If all earthly power were given me, I should not know what to do as to the existing institution. My first impulse would be to free all the slaves and send them to Liberia — to their own native land. But a moment’s reflection would convince me that, whatever of high hope there may be in this, in the long run, its sudden execution is impossible.”

It was a matter of practicality, not ideology. “The enterprise is a difficult one,” he had said in a speech in Springfield, Illinois, a year earlier, talking of interracial marriage, “but ‘when there is a will there is a way;’ and what colonization needs most is a hearty will.”

Two years later, and the issue of slavery, no matter how much President James Buchanan tried, was not going away. The Civil War was fought singularly on whether the states had the right to enslave other human beings. Yet Lincoln still had that idea of “colonizing” freed men, and on April 16, 1862, Lincoln signed the District of Columbia Compensation Act, which emancipated all slaves in the District, and slaveholders, in compensation, would receive $300 per slave. Additionally, $100 were given to each slave should he or she choose to leave the United States.

The issue came to a head on Jan. 1, 1863, with the Emancipation Proclamation, in which all slaves in the Confederate-controlled states and territories were to be freed. What next? According to earlier drafts of the famous document, colonization. To that group of black ministers he met with in August, he said; “better for us both, therefore, to be separated.” The plans drew so little support that Lincoln quietly put them in a drawer. Without a doubt, Lincoln was well-intentioned. He earnestly wanted what was best for all, but perhaps he should have heeded the words of Frederick Douglass:

“We live here — have lived here — have a right to live here, and mean to live here.”

The President's Guest House, commonly known as Blair House, located across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. The facility is primarily used to house visiting dignitaries and other guests of the president.
“Blair House” by Ben Schumin is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 2.0

WaPo is reporting that former Aussie PM John Howard is the “mystery guest” staying in Blair House, preventing Barack Obama and his family from staying there.

We now know who is booked at Blair House, kicking President-elect Barack Obama and his family to the waiting list and across Lafayette Park to the Hay-Adams Hotel. The only overnight visitor at the presidential guest manse is none other than John Howard, a former Australian prime minister and leading member of President Bush’s coalition of the willing in Iraq.

Howard and his entourage will be bunking at Blair House on Jan. 12, the night before he, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe are to be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Bush, said Sally McDonough, a spokeswoman for first lady Laura Bush. The three current and former heads of state are longtime political allies of Bush, and Blair and Howard were key partners in the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

Blair and Uribe also were invited to stay at Blair House, but declined Bush’s invitation, a second White House official said today. Blair, who traditionally stays at the British Embassy, and Uribe apparently found other accommodations, said the second White House official, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity.

It’s somewhat amusing that Tony Blair declined the invite to stay at Blair House. Otherwise, there’s no story here. Laura Rosen wonders, “Can’t the Australian embassy find [Howard] a hotel?” Sure. But the thing is this:  Blair House is “The President’s Guest House, ” where presidents house VIP guests.  George W. Bush is president of the United States until noon on January 20.

Incoming presidents customarily stay at Blair House starting on January 15. Lo and behold, it’ll be available for his use by then. No one has been “kicked out.”

Radical Democracy Party

Posted on July 16, 2020 by Royal Rosamond Press

I belong to a Black Panther group, and in response to a gentleman who said no white man would put down the KKK, I googled the Radical Republicans who specifically targeted the KKK, as did President Grant. Then I found the missing link I have been looking for for twelve years, or more. My kin, John Fremont, became a second Presidential Candidate when the Radical Democracy Party was formed – with the sole purpose of getting Lincoln to drop out of the race!


The Radical Republicans hated Lincoln who betrayed their ideals on all men being free. Many of these Radicals were Turners, members of the German Turnverein. immigrants who fled to America after they lost their Revolution in Europe. Three of my grandfathers appear to have been Turners. It also looks like the New York Turner Rifles – were sabotaged! They were given smooth bore rifles and allegedly rifled rifles “later on”. I don’t buy it! They were ordered into open fields where they had an extreme disadvantage, The Traitors were able to shoot them at twice the range. Cannon fire waited for them in one field, and they are described as cowards – who ran! They were arrested for not following orders. Their service was up and they were due back in New York – for the elections. Montgomery Blair claims he lost to “foreigners”. How many others would lost thanks to the Germans?

I believe the Blair family set the Turner Rifles up for failure – so other Turners all over America would not join the War Against Slavery. Fremont was the first Presidential Candidate for the Republican, and lost. I have read articles that said Lincoln did not want to defeat the Confederacy. He believed they would come back into the Union if a show of force occurred. However, because the Radicals cited the Monroe Act, I suspect the Blairs and Lincoln were waiting for the French and British to enter the war on the side of the Confederacy. He would surrender, and the Turners would be destroyed – along with Fremont!

The Speaker of the House has a suspicion Trump will not leave office if her loses. He has stabbed Vindman in the back. I believe neo-Confederates put Trump in office. I would like to see the formation of the New Turner Rifles that will be located in Oakland California and St. Louis. Sone have suggested statues of Lincoln should be hauled down.

The National Security Council sent a list of allegations about Lt. Col. Alex Vindman to the Pentagon after he testified before the House in impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, according to one person who has seen the document and two others briefed on it.

Many of the new party’s supporters did not necessarily want it to stand in the election. Rather, the hope was that the formation of a new party would cause Lincoln not to gain the Republican nomination.[10] Although this did not occur, Frémont maintained over the course of his campaign that he would drop out if Lincoln did likewise, in favor of a candidate whose platform more closely matched the ideals of the Radical Republicans.[11]

Frémont gained the support of a number of prominent abolitionists. However, the majority of Radical Republicans continued to support Lincoln as it was felt that Frémont could not win and that supporting him would split the abolitionist vote in favor of the Democrat candidate George McClellan.[12] Additionally, many were less than enthusiastic about the party platform with its compromises aiming to attract Democrats.[13] Frémont continued these overtures during his campaign.[14] As the campaign failed to gain momentum, many abolitionists urged Frémont to withdraw his nomination. No major newspaper supported Frémont.[15] However, some Democrat supporting newspapers such as the New York World did talk up Frémont’s credentials in order to disunite Republicans.[16] Confederates as well as Democrats took a close interest in Frémont’s campaign, hoping it could help McClellan win in November.[17]


Frémont and Cochrane dropped out of the race on September 21, 1864. In a letter to The New York Times, Frémont wrote that it had become increasingly clear that the Democrats could not be trusted on the issues of union or abolition. As such, he did not want to act as a spoiler against Lincoln.[18] At the same time, Frémont remained critical of Lincoln, writing that “his Administration has been politically, militarily and financially, a failure, and that its necessary continuance is a cause of regret for the country”.[19] In another letter to the same paper written one week previously, but published in the same edition, he wrote that the ideas of the Radical Democracy Party would nevertheless be pursued.[20] It has been speculated that Frémont’s withdrawal may have been part of a deal with Lincoln whereby the more conservative Postmaster General Montgomery Blair was removed from his post.[21]

Most Radical Democracy Party supporters went on to support Lincoln in the general election,[22] though there were some exceptions to this, notably Wendell Philips.[23] The party itself was finished, having only formed to run a candidate in the 1864 election.

The upcoming November, 1862 Congressional elections influenced President Lincoln’s handling of military operations in the Western Theatre. Lincoln was not so much concerned with a major victory in the Trans-Mississippi Theatre as he was with avoiding the loss of political supporters for the Union Cause in the western border states like Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee. He instructed his commanders to respect the private property rights of supporters and rebels alike unless military necessity required otherwise. This admonition even extended to interfering with slavery in those states. Lincoln had ordered Gen. Fremont to revoke his proclamation of August 30, 1861 which imposed military control over the government of Missouri, authorized the confiscation of rebel private property and freed slaves owned by Confederate supporters. When Fremont attempted to stir up opposition to the President’s order, Lincoln had him removed in spite of strong pressure from the German-American community in St. Louis. Lincoln gained support for his moderate policies by telling his Abolitionist supporters about the Union company composed of Kentucky recruits that had gone home upon learning of Fremont’s proclamation.

Some military commanders including Gen. Steele took notice of the abolitionist zeal on the part of the German-American troops. In a letter to General Halleck on November 1, 1861 Steele reported that, ” The German Regiments of my command are to be kept here [Helena] until after the election –Osterhaus’ Division. They are Abolitionists and are probably to vote for Blow rather than Blair. This was told to me by an unsophisticated German officer.” Although Steele allowed state election commissioners to come into his camps to count the votes cast by his German-American units, he would not allow them to return home to vote. As expected, most of the men of the German Brigade cast their votes for Blow, the Radical Republican Congressional candidate from St. Louis. Steele professed to be unconcerned with the radical Republican views of his German-American units, but since taking command of Osterhaus’ troops, he had favored his moderate Republican and Democratic friends from Iowa with commands and promotions over the German -American officers from St. Louis. Later Blair would contest the election results claiming that many non-citizens voted in the election. 

Mr. Lincoln seemed to be equally driven by his loyalty to the Blairs and his concerns for executive privilege. After the 1864 Republican National Convention in Baltimore, Congressman Thaddeus Stevens and former Secretary of War Simon Cameron visited President Lincoln. Stevens demanded: ‘In order that we may be able in our State to go to work with a good will I want you to make us one promise…that you will reorganize your cabinet, and leave Montgomery Blair out of it.”30 The two hour meeting was tense and intense. Colonel R. M. Hoe related the President finally gave his answer, in substance as follows, towering up to his full height, and delivering his words with emphatic gestures, and intense earnestness of speech:

“Mr. Stevens, I am sorry to be compelled to deny your request to make such a promise. If I were even myself inclined to make it, I have no right to do so. What right have I to promise you to remove Mr. Blair, and not make a similar promise to any other gentleman of influence to removed any other member of my cabinet whom he does not happen to like? The Republican party, wisely or unwisely had made me their nominee for President, without asking any such pledge at my hands. Is it proper that you should demand it, representing only a portion of that great party? Has it come to this that the voters of this country are asked to elect a man to be President – to be the Executive – to administer the government, and yet that this man is to have no will or discretion of his own. Am I to be the mere puppet of power – to have my constitutional advisers selected for me beforehand, to my manhood to consent to any such bargain – I was about to say it is equally degrading to your manhood to ask it.”

Historian Allan Nevins wrote: “The Radicals who hated Montgomery Blair were quite as numerous as the Moderates who hated Chase, and their detestation was quite as fervent. The judicious [William P.] Fessenden had fairly well represented the idea of party harmony. Could Lincoln find a replacement for Blair who would equally typify restraint and unity? The President felt liking and respect for Blair, just as he felt respect (though not liking) for Chase, but he did not approve the man’s quarrelsome and malignant streak. Once when Blair was denouncing the Radicals as selfish and vindictive, Lincoln rebuked him. ‘It is much better not to be led from the region of reason into that of hot blood, by imputing to public men motives which they do not avow.’”31

In the spring of 1864 a fringe group of radical abolitionists nominated General John C. Frémont as their candidate for President. Although Frémont and supporters did not campaign actively, they threatened to siphon votes from the Republican-Union tickets. Historian Allan Nevins noted that by the summer, “Montgomery was now disliked in every quarter. He had been barred from the Union League; a radical committee including George S. Boutwell and John Covode had lately demanded his dismissal; Henry Wilson wrote Lincoln that his retention would cost tens of thousands of votes. Men spoke of the Blairs as ‘a nest of Maryland serpents.’ On September 22nd, [Zachariah] Chandler, accompanied by David H. Jerome, later governor of Michigan, had a private interview with Lincoln. He announced the complete success of his labors; he had gotten Fremont out of the race, though not by the means he had expected.”32 Frémont had dropped out without conditions; the conditions were imposed by the Radical Republicans like Michigan Senator Chandler with whom he was negotiating.

Although there appears to have been no quid pro quo on Frémont’s part that he would drop out of the race if Montgomery Blair dropped out of the cabinet, it was clearly the goal of Chandler that Blair must go if Frémont quit. According to biographer Benjamin Thomas, the evidence suggest that Chandler “obtained Lincoln’s assent to such a bargain; for in a letter to his wife he wrote: “The President was most reluctant to come to terms but came.” Chandler’s subsequent negotiations with Frémont have never been completely clarified, but Frémont apparently would have no part of the bargain. On September 22 he renounced his candidacy, however, and Lincoln accepted Blair’s resignation the next day.” Blair told Navy Secretary Gideon Welles and Attorney General Edward Bates as they were leaving the President’s office: “I suppose you are both aware that my head is decapitated – that I am no longer a member of the Cabinet.’”33

The influence of Blair’s critics was considerable. Criticism of Blair escalated in the autumn of 1863 after Blair made a speech in which he damned Radical Republicans. Journalist Noah Brooks wrote: “The speech, which was an elaborate defense of the alleged conservative policy of the President, was also a bitter arraignment of prominent members of the Cabinet, Senators, and Representatives. The speech was subsequently issued in pamphlet form and created considerable stir in Washington, and among the President’s real friends in Maryland
