The Emancipation Proclamation
January 1, 1863

 


A Transcription

By the President of the United States of America:  A Proclamation

Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit:

That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.

That the Executive will, on the first day of January aforesaid, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of States, if any, in which the people thereof, respectively, shall then be in rebellion against the United States; and the fact that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be, in good faith, represented in the Congress of the United States by members chosen thereto at elections wherein a majority of the qualified voters of such State shall have participated, shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such State, and the people thereof, are not then in rebellion against the United States."

Now, therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested as Commander-in-Chief, of the Army and Navy of the United States in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and government of the United States, and as a fit and necessary war measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and in accordance with my purpose so to do publicly proclaimed for the full period of one hundred days, from the day first above mentioned, order and designate as the States and parts of States wherein the people thereof respectively, are this day in rebellion against the United States, the following, to wit:

Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, (except the Parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, Jefferson, St. John, St. Charles, St. James Ascension, Assumption, Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin, and Orleans, including the City of New Orleans) Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, (except the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, and also the counties of Berkley, Accomac, Northampton, Elizabeth City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth[)], and which excepted parts, are for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation were not issued.

And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within said designated States, and parts of States, are, and henceforward shall be free; and that the Executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons.

And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defence; and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for reasonable wages.

And I further declare and make known, that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the armed service of the United States to garrison forts, positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service.

And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the eighty-seventh.

By the President: ABRAHAM LINCOLN
WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State.

Beloved and most honerable sisters, I posted this comment with the knowledge that if no one else was courageous enough to say what needs to be said on the matter that you two would do what is needed to bring sanity and truth to the forefront. You never disappoint me. I post many points of view just to get the conversation started (whether I agree with them or not) and in hopes that someone like yourselves will bring to bear the needed reality check so many of us desperately need. Thank you again for your perspectives and analysis. The two of you certainly keep my spirits elevated! I wish there were more like you, but I'm grateful that you are here.

Peace, Love, Courage and REPARATIONS NOW!

Beloved Mighty warrior Sun Star, bro Star Lydell:

 

Beloved, as long as we are in the so called United States of America/Colleges of Corporations/Businesses, we aren't free.

 

Wherever there was any claim  of freedom, it was only in the body/physical, not mentally/consciously free, that freedom we need to get us up out of the Hell we are in.

 

It is Divine Truth/Reality that we are to follow.

 

Below is What Is Divinely Natural and what is Sane.

 

Connecting the DOTS (Within) will reveal what is and what is not.

1st (DOT) RESTITUTION

2nd (DOT) REPARATIONS

3rd (DOT) REPATRIATION

4th (DOT) NOW

Lydell, the key word spoken by Mr Obama, a Harvard graduate of Law, constitutional scholar and professor of Constitutional Law, , was the word "Democracy" and any politician that uses that word is a traitor to the Republic..and thereby to the people.  Democracy is mob rule, where 51% rules over 49%, that is not freedom, nor is it a Republican (not GOP) form of gov quaranteed by the Cons-titution. It is the tyranny of the majority,  it dishonors the Treaty of Friendship And Peace, and is responsible for the loss of the "freedoms" that the Cons-titution was supposed to quarrantee through the separation of powers that limit the powers of the government.

 

 The Emancipation Proclaimation was & is not law, it was a public announcement. so they did not have to free all the enslaved people.


Politics will disappoint you?  Is it politics that disappoints, or is it the men and women who swore an oath to uphold the Cons-titution, who are not doing that, but instead are making deals in backrooms to line the pockets of Corporate raiders and passing statutes, rules and regulations that strip the people of all rights to privacy, property rights, etc.  Is it Politicians (Obama) Using signing statements and Executive orders instead of representing the peoples will that is dissappointing us?

 He mentioned Lincoln, well Lincoln in 1860's through executive order implemented Martial Law, forced the unlawful, immoral 14TH amendment on us and others and we are still under martial law to this very day. Politics disappoints because they have everything upside down, they have it like this, Government, Legal System, People, when it is supposed to be like this:

 

God

People

Government

Law

 

Executive Orders Disposition Tables Index

 

History of U.S. Military Interventions since 1890

 

Poli-trics does not do anything to anyone, just like guns do not kill, it is the people in politics and the people who use the guns to do the killing.

 

So what did he really say?
