Thomas Nast’s Original “The Union Christmas” Civil War Print

http://www.sonofthesouth.net/nast_Union_Christmas.htm

This is probably the most touching and moving Abraham Lincoln print to come out of the Civil War era. The leaf was printed on December 31, 1864, and Thomas Nast was the artist. The print shows Mr. Lincoln standing at the door, inviting the Southern Rebels to come in from the cold and snow, and rejoin the union.

    I wanted to convey the same message I left on Thanksgiving, as it is heartfelt.

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    May you find comfort this day in the company of those you love and who love you in return.

    But if you find yourself alone this day, may you find comfort in the knowledge that you are loved by your Creator and precious to Him.

    And that is something you share with countless others the world over.

    Rosetta, the very same Merry Christmas to you too.

    I first started reading your blog when you posted on the API site during the fun days there. I have enjoyed the gang ever since. Thanks again for maintaining a clean, spirited and informative forum with intelligent and relevant thread topics (whether followed by the gang or not). It takes some work for you to do this every day and all who benefit appreciate that effort.

  3. Tenacity Says:

    Merry Christmas Rose & Gang! May all be well and of good cheer.

    😦 I’m going to miss OkayIsuckO. I guess we will just have to talk about more important things.

    I posted a couple of days ago that I was researching the Hawaii website for relevant law regarding BC’s issued to foreign born children (assuming he might have been born in Kenya, of course). The web site had been down for maintenance (I assume) but is back up. The bad news is that I haven’t really found anything new there. The law on this subject is apparently 338-17.8 and reads as follows:

    Certificates for children born out of State. (a) Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.

    (b) Proof of legal residency shall be submitted to the director of health in any manner that the director shall deem appropriate. The director of health may also adopt any rules pursuant to chapter 91 that he or she may deem necessary or proper to prevent fraudulent applications for birth certificates and to require any further information or proof of events necessary for completion of a birth certificate.

    (c) The fee for each application for registration shall be established by rule adopted pursuant to chapter 91. [L 1982, c 182, §1]

    As has been discussed, this law was enacted in 1982, so the question remains as to what (if anything) was done previous to that with regard to foreign born babies. There are no references to prior law so there is no clear indication of precedent to be gleaned from the web site. I did find an older section that dealt with citizenship that apparently stemmed from the older Hawaii consitution from 1894. You can read that section at:

    h.ttp://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/hrscurrent/Vol01_Ch0001-0042F/03-ORG/ORG_0004.htm

    Have some aspirin ready, the reading there is confusing. But there was a reference there about the above newer law (inserted later one presumes) that includes some prior law references. That language is:

    The secretary of Hawaii may issue to persons born in Hawaii certificates of Hawaiian birth, which are prima facie evidence: HRS §§338‑41 to 44, see also former law: L. 1905, c. 64; am. L. 1907, c. 79; rep. L. 1909, c. 15; R.L. 1915, p. 1487; R.L. 1925, c. 21; R.L. 1935, c. 247

    Those prior laws may have relevance as to what was done on the BC issues prior to 1982. Unfortunately, the older laws are not online.

    If anyone knows somebody who lives in Honolulu, these materials are publicly available (according to the website) if you go to the capitol library. A willing volunteer could go there and see if those laws helped clarify this. (Maybe ‘O’ could go for us, between swims!)

    I also considered emailing a senator or rep to see if they would help but I’m not sure it’s worth the bother. They have a list of all emails on the website, so if someone’s willing to try that, it can’t hurt.

    If any of the gang has any other ideas, I’m all ears. Sorry I couldn’t come up with something juicy.

    jrh,
    Merry Christmas! I looked through the HRS and the related acts also. It was pretty much a waste of my time. I definitely recall reading an article where the author had researched the practices of the Department of Health prior to 1982. It was determined that the practices were similar but even laxer prior to 1982. Apparently they would register a foreign birth within one year after the birth.

  8. sliderblaze Says:

    Good take on the Chaney interview…..

    One would think that these Democratic leaders would, on their own, want to respond to Cheney’s claims about them and deny the truth of those claims. After all, Cheney’s statement is nothing less than an accusation that they not only enthusiastically approved, but actively insisted upon the continuation and ongoing secrecy, of a blatantly illegal domestic spying program (one that several of them would, once it was made public, pretend to protest). As Armando says, “The Democratic members who participated in this meeting have two choices in my mind – refute Cheney’s statements or admit their complicity in the illegal activity perpetrated by the Bush Administration.”

    Well, guess what, douchebag? They’ve in effect done the latter, as AP says:

    It’s now more than 24 hours since the Cheney interview aired and nary a peep from any of the Dems accused. If this is some egregious smear or lie, they’re being curiously shy about calling him on it. Which, as far as I’m concerned, tells you exactly what their shrieking was really all about all along: power, and their conscienceless pursuit of it for its own sake. And it makes the perfervid demands from unhinged Nutrooters for war-crimes trials for Cheney and Bush all the more risible. Ain’t gonna happen, freaks; but do feel free to go right on pissing yourselves over it anyway. Watching you soil your Underoos over such vacuous silliness — from a distance, and upwind, naturally — is immensely entertaining for us sane people, and is probably your greatest contribution to civilized society.

  9. jrh Says:

    Tenacity, ‘waste of time’ is a pretty good description of it. It would be interesting if one of the clerks who did this stuff a long time ago would come out and talk about it. I’m amazed at how many Obama apologists continue to insist that the COLB he posted MUST mean he was born in HI. Common sense is all you need to know that hawaiians would occasionally have babies while out of state and would want them registered upon return. I bet that the vault file on O has some interesting documents tucked away. We can only hope that at least one of the many court actions will issue the subpoena to get at them!

    Pretty quiet around RS today. I hope the drive by posting by Kawasaki Osaka (?) didn’t send the gang away till the coast is clear, ha! Anyway, Merry Christmas to you as well.

  10. sliderblaze Says:

    you know Obama’s attorney defended

    John Hinckley Jr.

    Wow…small world. One of my partners in Denver in the early to mid ’80s was a Jewish-Persian. His father owned the only export distiller in Iran before the fall of the Shah. He built most of the hospitals, schools and government buildings in Tehran and surrounding areas. It is not only possible, but likely that my partner’s father built the hospital referenced in this article. His distillery was 12 miles square (yes I said that correctly), produced burgandy and was nationalized after the Shah fell. The whole family was condemned to death and barely got out of the country with their lives. Some of his cousins were not so fortunate.

  35. Troy Says:

    Ten,
    I watched it the first time that you posted it….A lot of it makes perfect sense and I have little doubt that much of it is true…..There were parts here and there that I have some doubts about, but for the most part it was enlightening….The most interesting part is the fact that the video was made in 2006 and almost three years later things that the dude said are playing out before our eyes….Other countries giving us the ultimate “middle finger” and not wanting to play
    “nice nice”, such as Russia, Iran, Venezuela, etc., is
    ongoing….I just read an article somewhere about how Russia is forming it’s own “OPEC” for natural gas….Europeans are crapping themselves because Russia is the main source of their natural gas…..They now expect to be either price gouged or freezing their asses off….This is one of the things Lindsey talked about and is indeed now taking place….Also let’s not forget about all of Russia’s little war games with Venezuela, Cuba and others….Russia has also been selling submarines, jets, missiles, etc.. to Venezuela…..They also just GAVE ten MiG-29 fighter jets to Lebanon and have been supplying Iran for decades….It’s all coming to a head!!!

  36. Tenacity Says:

    Troy,
    Note that Palin got that LNG pipeline approved and wants to drill in ANWAR. McCain does not want to drill in ANWAR. I see the implication that McCain is in the tank for the NWO. Isn’t it now obvious why they are so bent on discrediting Palin? It also puts a lot of the pieces of the puzzle together why Bush (both)/Clinton/Obama are all in the tank for the NWO. I heard Williams point about a few people raising hell can make a big impact. I remember the discussion about how many Black Panthers it took to literally shut down the city of New York….just 80.

    over at publish.indymedia.org/en/2008/12/918253.shtml there is a very interesting article. Its from a woman who is looking for a lawyer to help her.

    she came across this in the Hawaii statutes.

    Hawaii Revised Statutes
    HRS 0338-0020 0005.htm
    (a) The department of health SHALL establish a HAWAII CERTIFICATE OF BIRTH for a person BORN IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY and child by adoptive parent or parents.

    Hawaii Revised Statutes
    HRS 0578-0014.htm
    (b) If a NEW BIRTH CERTIFICATE… is issued, the
    ORIGINAL birth certificate SHALL be SEALED.

    Well, Obama’s BC WAS sealed so that could only mean one thing. He was born out of country.

    Excerpt frpm LA Times>

    _____________
    Emanuel, the transition team told Huffington Post today, has just a little bit ago — in fact, we just missed him — left for a long-planned family vacation in that place that every North Side Chicago family dreams of visiting for the year-end holidays, somewhere in Africa. We’re not told the area code. Likely on a safari. With no cell coverage, of course. So he’s not around to talk

    ________________
    anyone else things it funny that Emanuel is going to Africa when the world is busy and focused on the holidays??
