Today we have problems with illegal immigrants possibly being given the right to vote without first becoming citizens. Comrade Biden is just drooling in anticipation of that happening. It’s one of his fondest dreams. It will allow the Democratic socialists to grab power and keep it. And Establishment Republicans will sit and yawn if that happens because at heart, they are socialists just like the Democrats.
But, is this a new problem? Actually it isn’t. It’s just a repeat performance of the same game used to put Lincoln in office in 1860. We never heard about it in Lincoln’s day because the Establishment “historians” long ago decided we didn’t need to know about it.
However, Arthur R. Thompson, in his authoritative book “To the Victors go the Myths and Monuments” has blown the whistle on them. Regarding Lincoln’s election, Mr. Thompson wrote: “There was a consensus at the time that German immigrants under the leadership of the 48ers put Lincoln over the top in six key Midwest states. This fact has been expunged from the history books…To further ensure the vote would turn out as the radicals wanted, in the states of Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, non-citizens were allowed to vote. This was done on the basis of a mix of one or more of the following: a declaration of intent to become a citizen, residency of from 4 to 30 months, and/or payment of property tax. German immigrant population in these areas ranged from 5 to 15%. It is estimated that between 450,000 and 600,000 German immigrants in this area voted based on the foregoing formulae. In 1860, fully 50% of the German language newspapers were run by 48ers promoting the Republican Party. This gave an inordinate amount of influence to the socialist leadership compared to their actual number. Capture of the information services has always been one of their goals–it remains so today.”
Mr. Thompson also noted: “Without the German vote in 1860, Douglas would have been elected president. Without the illegal German vote, Douglas would have been president.” Let that little fact begin to sink in–without the illegal German vote Douglas would have been president. You don’t believe in conspiracies, except, perhaps, Hillary Clinton’s “vast right-wing conspiracy” that the managed news media touted? You don’t believe because you have not been taught real history–and that’s on purpose–which is part of the conspiracy too–the one you don’t believe in.
Arthur Thompson also revealed that: “One of the radical Germans who served as an elector for Lincoln in 1860 was Friedrich Kapp, an attorney from 1850 to 1870. He had been active in the Republican Party early on. He returned to Germany and was elected to the German Diet in 1871. He said that America “will occupy a decidedly better place as soon as it gets rid of Christianity.” He is a prime example of what supported Lincoln–militant anti-Christian socialists! Walter Kennedy and I dealt with “those people” in our book “Lincoln’s Marxists” used copies of which can still be purchased at Amazon I believe.
For information about Mr. Thompson’s book contact: American Opinion Foundation Publishers, 750 N. Hickory Farm Lane, Appleton, Wisconsin 54194. I undersrand it comes in both hard cover and paperback. It is most definitely worth the read. It will take you awhile, but you will learn things about our history that have been purposely hidden from you by our Establishment “historians” if you can even call them that. And that is part of this conspiracy you don’t believe in.
