July 4, 2021—#8: Abraham Lincoln vs. The British Empire



The principles of the Declaration of Independence, principles which Abraham Lincoln dedicated his life to defending, posed a deadly threat to the British Empire and to oligarchical rule.

Lincoln knew this, and he faced that crisis with a quality of moral courage which we all can learn from today.

In this conclusion of the Lincoln podcasts, we review key points concerning Lincoln's creation of the Republican Party, the Greenback national credit policy, Lincoln's triumph with the Emancipation Proclamation and more of Lincoln's wit and humor. All of this is highly relevant for those of us today who are committed to saving our Republic.

July 23, 2021—Wrap-up: Why Abraham Lincoln is Needed to Save Our Nation Today



Over the span of nine podcasts, Bob Ingraham and Michael Steger have explored the life and career of Abraham Lincoln. Particular emphasis has been placed on discussing the principles which guided Lincoln throughout his life. His devotion to the revolutionary precepts of the Declaration of Independence influenced his approach to economics, science, education, culture and almost every aspect of his personal life and political career. The critical importance of Lincoln, for today, goes far beyond merely refuting the lies and slanders of Critical Race Theory and the anti-American leftists. For it is in the life and the moral courage of Lincoln that we find the positive mission of the American Republic, the mission to which we must return if we are to save our nation.
