Nancy Pelosi, ever ready to defend the Dictator-in-Chief, says the “Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order”. Well, not exactly, Nancy. You see, Miss Nancy, at the time of the proclamation, those states in rebellion were effectively under martial law and this fact was included in Lincoln’s proclamation.
Of particular interest, Madame Former Speaker of the House, the Emancipation Proclamation applied only to those states in rebellion and not to adjoining states that remained joined to the Union.
Article I, Section 9, clause 2 says, “The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.”
Not even one of these sovereign states within the Union is in rebellion. At least not yet. Therefore, she-who-should-know-what-she’s-talking-about, the Emancipation Proclamation was NOT an executive order like those of your#fascist president.
