Actor Albert Brooks Compares John Voight to John Wilkes Booth The left try to compare Trump to Hitler, and the compare Lincoln to Christ... Here, is The Plain Truth about Lincoln: Lincoln swore to was "to preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution of the US. REMEMBER! Secession of states was not prohibited by the US Constitution at that time. Therefore it was completely legal... -- Lincoln ordered the military blockade of Southern ports----an act of war. Congress can do it, NOT the President. -- Lincoln ordered hundreds of Northern newspapers who spoke out against him to be closed. Their owners and editors were arrested for disloyalty! When has Trump done this? It is a clear violation of the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. -- Lincoln ordered the arrest of Ohio Congressman Clement Vallandigham for the crime of speaking out against him. When did Trump order the arrest of anyone? -- Chief Justice of the US Roger Taney, sitting as a judge of the United States Circuit Court for the District of Maryland, ruled that Lincoln had violated the US Constitution when he illegally suspended the Writ of Habeas Corpus. After learning this, Lincoln signed an arrest warrant to have the Chief Justice of the US arrested! -- Lincoln sent Union troops door to door in areas of Maryland, a Union state, to confiscate weapons. This is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. -- Lincoln ordered many Constitutional violations against Maryland: 'Maryland my Maryland' was published calling Lincoln a tyrant and a despot and a vandal. Lincoln as already mentioned, trashed the Constitution by suspending the Writ of Habeas Corpus and sending troops door to door confiscating weapons in areas of Maryland. Maryland was a Union state! Not a Confederate one Lincoln ordered the arrest of thousands of Maryland citizens... Their crime? 'suspected Southern sympathies'. Lincoln ordered the arrest of US Congressman Henry May representing Maryland. #7 Lincoln also had arrested... Most of the Maryland State Legislature #8 Most of the Baltimore city council #9 The police commissioner of Baltimore #10 The mayor of Baltimore #11 Thousands of prominent Maryland citizens. #12 These people were arrested and held in Military prisons, without trial, some of them for years. This trashing of the Constitution upset many Marylanders. One of them was named Booth. April 25 1861, When it looks as though Maryland may secede from the Union, Lincoln sends a letter to General Winfield Scott giving him permission to BOMB Maryland's Cities. These are war crimes. Bombing your own citizens is why we are fighting against SYRIA! We call that Terrorism these days. -- The Lincoln administration allowed the taking of private property for public use without just compensation or due process of law. This is a clear violation of the 5th Amendment. A prime example is the Union army stealing Robert E Lees home, Arlington House, which they used as Headquarters. Since dead Union soldiers were stacking up like cordwood, they started burying them in Lee's yard. There were so many Union soldiers graves here, this was to become Arlington National Cemetery. -- The Lincoln Administration routinely used water torture against the thousands of Union prisoners arrested and jailed without trail. This violates the 8th Amendment, "Cruel and unusual punishment". This is the real Lincoln! We might excuse these behaviors to "save the union" BUT WE SHOULD NOT FORGET THEM, or compare someone who has broken no laws to him!
