On this day in 1862, President Abraham Lincoln (R-IL) issued the Emancipation Proclamation. Effective at yearend, all slaves in Confederate-controlled territory would be “forever free.”
Ill-informed critics of the first Republican President Lincoln fault the Emancipation Proclamation for only freeing slaves in areas not yet under the control of the U.S. government, but — because of the Democratic Party’s resolute defense of slavery — the federal government had the necessary authority only over so-called “property” of the rebels.
Within two years, the Republican-controlled 38th Congress followed up this great advance by enacting the 13th Amendment, banning slavery throughout the nation.
On this day, September 17 in 1787, our Founding Fathers adjourned the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.
The US Constitution has been the cornerstone of the beliefs of the Republican Party since it was founded in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854. Although changes have been made over the years, these changes have only made it a stronger document for governing the United States and the Republican Party today.
We should use today as a reminder of what our Founding Fathers fought for: economic freedom, individual liberty, and limited government.

Why Democrats are quietly retreating from their Trump/Putin collusion creation.
In case you missed it, the Democrat Party and its mainstream media machine has focused all their resources this week on the emerging criminal conspiracy between former DNC chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her IT expert, Imran Awan, et al.
They actually focused all their 24/7 print and bandwidth on the fact that the House Judiciary Committee formally requested that Attorney General Jeff Sessions investigate Barack Obama‘s AG Loretta Lynch, Obama’s FBI director James Comey, and of course Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her criminal co-conspirator Bill Clinton.
Of course, The New York Times and The Washington Post, along with all their Demo download media outlets, remain totally focused on their delusional Trump/Putin collusion illusion, the fake news farce they have been proliferating, ad nauseam, since President Donald Trump took office.
But some Democrats are quietly retreating from the Trump/Putin front because of the increasing risk that the fraudulent charade will ricochet.
The south used to vote Democrat. Now it votes Republican. Why the switch? Was it, as some people say, because the GOP decided to appeal to racist whites? Carol Swain, Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University, explains.
Progressives are in a bit of a panic lately, looking at the results of a recent focus group study that shows their core base of millennials are abandoning the leftist ideology in droves, jumping out of the Democratic Party’s ship to take their votes — gasp! — elsewhere.
Those who had the misfortune of seeing President Obama go after “tax breaks for corporate jets” as part of his press conference may be wondering why he was attacking a provision that was in his so-called stimulus and enacted by a Democratic-controlled Congress in 2009.
But that’s just routine politics. The folks in the White House are probably laughing about screwing jet builders after collecting campaign money from them in exchange for that provision two years ago.
The more important thing to focus on is the way that the big spenders in the White House and elsewhere are trying to build support for a big tax increase by characterizing tax breaks as “spending in the tax code.” The left obviously hopes Republicans are so stupid that Orwellian word games are all that is needed to get them to acquiesce to legislation that would increase the amount of revenue going to Washington.
