Spider-Man Remastered for PS5 changes a lot, including Peter Parker’s face
"Five. So we know that there's been a lot of drama around the remastered for Marvel's Spiderman, which originally launched on ps four as an exclusive, and we'll be coming as a remastered version for playstation five. This Week INSOMNIAC released a couple of new assets showing exactly what they have upgraded for this version and boy. Oh boy, you would think people would be excited but ladies. People are not excited about this at all and I. was just weird because like it's it's predictable is really what it is officer. Culture. So it's I'm youngin announced that for the remastered version of Marvel Spiderman coming to ps five that it has recast the model of Peter. Parker the announcement about changes in the PS five version not the studio replaced the face of model. John Boonnak with Ben Jordan. The CTO said the Jordan is a much better MAC match for Yuri Lowenthal facials capture movement. So to be clear, Yuri Lowenthal is the voice actor that plays Peter Parker the original model was a man. Named John. Bosniak boob Nick Saban I don't know how to say your name John and then Bend Jordan is now the new model he looks pretty noticeably different to more boyish like the RC Cola version of Tom Holland rights. Gamespot. So I'm going to stop the bureau here for a second so that I can show everybody the side by side comparison of what all three of these models look like. If you guys have missed this and you haven't seen it yet. On. The Internet the Internet? Yes. Let me find it here in our not isis lead all these photos. Thanks. There you go. Okay. So I have up on screen here the three. So we've got the top is the original. Peter Parker on the bottom is the new Peter Parker a completely different person right? Like he's got a cleft to know is that you call it? Yes. He does have a little bit of a cleft Chin the ears are different. The jaw lines different I mean the cheekbones I literally everything different it's. Different people the eyebrows are somewhat similar just better. I mean, yes. The hair is actually quite quite better. I will say they did a much better job and I pull the photo of the Real Tom Holland. The actor, of course who plays fighter man in the Newest iteration of Spiderman. Know Him from. Avengers and obviously all of the spider movies and he of course, is famously cast in the upcoming uncharted film that is yet to be released, which he said is going quite well, which is exciting to hear but I think the reason why I wanted to pull this up because it's very clear that he looks this new model looks a lot more like Tom Holland than old model did this is the actual model Okay. So the actual model looks strikingly like, Tom Holland. Yes. I think they just happened to also really handsome dude. I was like Google guys. Oh hello sailor. You're probably twelve which is unfortunate for me but. He he definitely looks like like some of these pictures he looks like a cross between Tom Hollander Andrew Garfield. Oh Yeah Andrew the field had lighter colored hair in a different nose. Yeah. But he? If. This is him. That looks like townhall in this photo for sure. Nah Face the faces a little different hair think is was throwing the hair definitely look similar. So as you can imagine everybody people on the Internet are upset shocking I know according to Gamespot. The changes led to some complaints from fans of the original Peter Leading Lowenthal the voice actor again to issue a tweet blaming the stupid stupid bones in his face. Apparently, the bones in his face made motion capture animation difficult in a way that I guess only animators would understand. Continuing on the story other changes made for the remastered include a graphics overhaul with improved models and materials ray trace reflections, NBA shadows, true reflections of the buildings and windows. The characters themselves have been modeled with higher fidelity skin. Eye and teeth shakers, teeth, teeth. because. You know you don't teach shares everybody it's very important. I. Mean. It would make sense if you wanted to get them correct and like lighting or whatever sort of situation you know what the look. Weird I mean you don't want that on Kelly uncanny valley either. Either obviously can make or break an uncanny valley moment. supermassive games actually when they're doing with their mouth and then their teeth just look it looks like they go on forever like Thursdays so many. Ramadan so All the teeth are not the same size. So. It's like, yeah. When you look at other people yes you kinda knows it's not like why are like match your face? Remember they're talking like this I like. The loading screens, the low day screens would just it would be as if you were at the dentist with those things that they. Just you look like that.

He was extremely lukewarm. In your support. He has Garfield man and in truth. Garfield was entertaining the idea of running his private correspondence reveals that conflicted man who could see both sides of the question too good and the bad as he wrote to his wife. His biggest concern was Roscoe. Conquering even if Garfield won the nomination. He told her it will be to likely embitter him and his followers against me publicly. Garfield did not commit but many delegates were warming up to the idea of a Garfield nomination. Especially in the face. A likely gridlock between Blaine and grant Garfield was repeatedly approached by delegates looking to test the waters and repeatedly dismissed the idea of his own candidacy and sued fast by Secretary Sherman but despite his public posture Garfield speech had started something he could no longer control on June seventh. The first ballot was in line with previous predictions and the press grant three or four Blaine to eighty four Sherman. Ninety-three on the first day Garfield picked up a single vote from Pennsylvania delegate. The rest of the votes were spread across several minor candidates. By the end of that. First Day of voting. After over twenty ballots little had changed grant and Blaine were still neck and neck and still well short of the required number after a long day of voting. A reporter asked one delegate appointed question. Do you think it's possible for the blame? Men To support Sherman. The delegate responded bluntly no Sir when the reporter asked him about Garfield then a delegate demurred saying only imparting good evening the next day on the thirty fourth ballot Garfield 's name started to ring out sixteen delegates from Wisconsin voted for Garfield from there. The dominoes fell one by one. Delegates from all across the country threw their support behind. Garfield on the thirty six ballot. The contest was over. Garfield secured three hundred ninety five votes and the Republican nomination after that final vote Garfield told a reporter for Chicago newspaper. I wish you would say that. This is no act of mine. I have done everything. Omitted nothing to secure Secretary Sherman's nomination one Sherman. Supporters sent the secretary the bad news via telegraph the Movement to Garfield swept with lightning rapidity through the convention. He is nominated hall erupted in cheers. The Chairman Bank has gavel and pronounce James. A Garfield of Ohio is nominated for the president of the United States. Conclaves men though had remained firm. They stood by grant until the final ballot in the end. It was James Blaine half breeds that defected to Garfield camp a few minutes after the announcement roscoe conflict took the floor and said I congratulate the Republican Party of the United States on the good nature and well tempered rivalry which has distinguished this animated contest though. His outward words and actions were magnanimous. His tone was solemn and gloomy. Conkland was deep down furious. Whether by accident or design James Garfield had successfully secured his party's nomination but to win. In the General Election Garfield new. He would have to unite the Republican Party behind his candidacy to accomplish. That goal. Garfield would have to curry favor from the very man. He just feed roscoe conquering as was his custom.

"Not long after the meeting between Arthur and Chandler the delegates at the convention voted to reject the unit rule. Four forty nine to three. Oh six it's impossible to know. Exactly why conch push for a compromise or why he gave out what many perceived as being a massive advantage. Perhaps he questioned Cameron's loyalty days earlier. Cameron had sent a message to Secretary Sherman indicating that if he would instruct his people to back the unit rule cameron believed the stalwarts would eventually abandon grant and defect to Sherman side. Perhaps conquering felt betrayed by this. Or perhaps he feared Cameron was right. In his assessment. The unit rule could help Conklin but in the event of a stalemate with Blaine. It could hurt him to still. The most likely explanation is that conquering was worried about the political ramifications of Split Convention. And he was not alone. Ultimately after Arthur's compromise supporters of all three candidates on board including James Garfield but rumours of Garfield darkhorse candidate only increased after the compromise was struck with unit rule. Off The table. It was anyone's convention grant and Blaine were locked in a tight contest with Sherman in a distant third all three well shy of the required number of votes a gridlock between Blaine and grant could certainly result in a Sherman victory but it also left the door open for any candidate candidate like Garfield to rise to the top while at the Convention Garfield wrote to his wife. You can hardly imagine the embarrassment. I have been in from the moment of my arrival here. By the number of delegates from all quarters who were openly expressing. The wish that I was the Ohio candidate if Garfield was embarrassed by the support for his nomination at the convention his behavior seemed to indicate otherwise as Roscoe Conklin continued to scheme on grants behalf Garfield would take principled stance that would fan the rumor mill of his dark horse candidacy and position him as the man to beat at the Chicago.

WNYC's where that is produced it's on many NPR stations around around this great country hundreds of them hundreds of the fifty four hundred fifty four hundred fifty. We have fifty five on the great takeout radio network. We're aspiring spiring to four hundred fifty. Someday we'll grow up and be as important as your show as Bob Garfield. Someday be careful what you wish for. It is not easy being a giant in the upper the middle public broadcasting responsibility a giant in the upper middle upper middle of public broadcasting The book has this alert of information about what's wrong. What is warped? What is divisive? What is poisonous about our political dialogue social media digital platforms it forms etc but it also has helpfully? I'm sure you would say recommendations on what people can do. Because many individuals may feel powerless in this atmosphere. What can they do well? I have a sort of a six. Plank manifesto ended presumes that the answer is not going to be found on Capitol Hill for the moment moment that for the moment things are so screwed up so polarized so paralyzed that we cannot look to democracy. The two cannot look to that institution of democracy to save democracy but we can look to other aspects of democracy to save democracy the key one being citizen citizen awareness and participation and The the six planks with maybe one exception are all about what we he is. Individuals can do to preserve freedom of thought freedom of expression and to to UNRIG the system and to boot repair. Some of the damage that Two hundred forty three years of imperfect democracy have wrought and some of those recommendations are I. I just don't recall. I wrote the book almost a year ago and Kat is one good okay boycott. That wasn't the first but let there. Okay I've told told you that I myself a big anti-trumpers it's not just that I the first thing I do when I get up in the morning even before I go to the bathroom to you know might do my ablutions. Yes the first thing I do is fill thank you and I. I wasn't sure where you were going ahead with that. That's where you landed. I coulda blute like nobody's business. I'm just saying so. The first thing I do morning is Hey Fox news channel I I devote a little time. I meditate on how much I hate the Fox News Channel. I see because I think it is a corrosive. Talked to former employer not You know I'm not judging although okay maybe a little bit so I mean. We're I'm sitting here talking to a guy who not only formerly worked for Fox News Channel but serves food in the middle of a radio interview interview soy understand. I'm dealing with a problematic personnel. Very problematic personality a borderline dangerous. But but I don't think they're news organization I think they are. I think it started to be a news organization that counter programmed what he perceived to be the the overwhelming the liberal media narrative. And a but I think very very early on they realized that there was money in them there hills golden them there hills and almost from the beginning ratcheted up the partisanship the up the opposition research the intellectual dishonesty and now it's just a lie machine and Sean Hannity Mark Zuckerberg's of a dangerous man Sean. Hannity isn't any help to the society site. Caught Fox's yeah. I'm saying to boycott advertisers. WHO advertise on Fox? Now there is a lot of dispute even among you know lefty journalists about whether a boycott has ever the right solution for dealing with something that purports to be a news organization and they don't think that Jack Shafer of off politico in particular doesn't believe that Advertisers should be the arbiter of what's true. And what ain't you know what's legitimate opinion and what what isn't so I you know I respect his opinion. My opinion is that this is a corrosive forest. It's damaging our democracy every day posing as a news organization when it is very little more than the propaganda arm of the trump White House into a slightly lesser degree the Republican Party and And is an ongoing twenty four seven dirty tricks operation. That's my view and I think that the way to handle that is to is to punish advertisers who ooh think who think it's a safe place to put their commercials? I think they should pay penalty for choosing to be a part of that so And not not just Fox News. There's others in the vast right wing media conspiracy but I'd I'd start there because it is to you that Fox walks I believe in the current most the most recent ratings period had many of the top shows not just on Cable News but cable overall. uh-huh I'd say they have a very very good formula they are in the rage business and they manufacture it and they feed on it and and it's a never ending cycle. And it's you know like facebook's have very good business model I I would say. They're they're more less insidious. Yes and more malignant more malign. Maybe it's the the better form of that word and I you know I think that they intentionally invent uh-huh fake news and Jin controversies and put a bellows to bizarre conspiracies And so I think they're more actively evil and I don't think evil is the wrong word in facebook and so I think they were big problem and they have to be dealt with you kick around in the book. The topic of trust busting an idea. The of maybe facebook and Google should be broken apart in the way that large trusts were broken up in the early part of the Twentieth Century Yeah no I if I if I read the book correctly in the perfect world or a world that work that would happen in the world before nine hundred seventy it would have happened absolutely but around the seventies early eighties. A new way of thinking about antitrust began to coalesce it's Milton. Friedman Chicago School of Economics. Which says is that? There's no actual consumer harm dollars and cents. WE'RE NOT GONNA WE'RE WE'RE NOT GONNA break companies if if the consumers benefiting even if if there is an unfair application market power It's it's not really our our problem The the nanny state may think it's a problem but we we don't need need to deal with a company that's operating lawfully and the consumer is not having money siphoned from his or her no matter how large it is and that that approach to interest has has prevailed for the last forty years. There is a new kind of antitrust thinking now for to deal with companies like Amazon and facebook and Google which which doesn't disagree with the premise of consumer harm. But it says they just can't be measured by dollars and sense because let's face it. FACEBOOK causes zero dollars to us. which is one of the better price points yearly early? Yeah so it's hard to better than zero. Three start writing checks so but they say that there are other costs and mainly in your data. I mean their a day you give them all. facebook knows more about you make more. Maybe not you because you don't use it right but it knows more about me than and my wife my kids your lawyer my employer the government and a me myself myself. I know more about me and how my mind works and how many motions works then work than I do myself and that has a value and we don't price that we don't price it so if we did we might consider this monopoly or some sort of thing that was of trust size that required at least there should be a conversation about there should be an. That's what economists do they figure out the economic value of things that aren't necessarily traded in dollars and cents and this new kind of antitrust doctrine which is sometimes called a new brandeis in The name of the former Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis and sometimes it's called hip. hipster antitrust is is gaining momentum. Very good I'd mentioned three threshold questions. Here they are in no particular order. Most influential book in your life favorite music artists or Jonah and favorite movie. Okay as usual not going to answer exactly the questions you ask Concerned mostly title the most wind chill book. I've read I read the first time when I was fourteen years old. It was catch twenty two Joseph Pallor figures prominently in that book. Major Major Major. Yes that's exactly right. There was a character named major major. Major major AH I. He was a second lieutenant immediately. Promoted to Major. Because how could you not. Yeah so okay. Then my most influential book and then the second one movie or music Whatever order music? I listen to absolutely everything and but you know if I had to guess if I had to a long drive. That's usually the way I put it to Arthur Genre I. I would go somewhere between a Beethoven Piano Sonatas and American songbook standards very good favorite movie or one of your all time favorite movies. My favorite movie. That is nobody else's favorite favorite movie is movie made I think in nineteen sixty called King rat based on a James clavell novel and it was about a Japanese prisoner of war camp in Singapore in in the last days of of world. War Two George cegled Tom Courtney James Fox and it's just a masterpiece fantastic George Segal. Someone who was almost a great star accomplished actor but never quite made it never quite made not the greatest actor ever know but he was on the cusp of becoming a great star and a movie like that almost got him there but anyway great movie great.

"A compromise for the infighting between the stalwarts and the half breeds when he was killed the stalwarts all but faded if Garfield had not been assassinated. It's possible that he would have united the Party. The process had already begun with his cabinet picks but perhaps by the time he loved office. The Division would have been mended which leads to the possibility that Chester Arthur would never have been president accident at all at the time of Garfield death. He and Arthur had barely spoken to one another for weeks. The only reason Arthur softened his views news was because of Garfield death. It's possible that otherwise. Arthur would have continued his hardline radical ways the ripped could have been so bad that he may have even left the vice presidency come the next election in eighteen eighty four and what would have happened to Charles. Ghetto had he not pulled the trigger that July Day at the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad station Charles was a deeply troubled person all through his life after his execution and autopsy showed possible signs of a syphilitic infection in the late stages of the disease. The brain can become severely verily affected however the civilised theory was discounted in two thousand six by George Paulsen former chair of neurology at Ohio State Date University Paulsen argued that syphilis would have affected Charles's cognitive skills within four or five years because Charles had already been mentally ill for many years prior he probably suffered from schizophrenia and grandiose narcissism given all this we can assume that Charles Charles would have continued a life of schemes and scams as a way to make money he had a history of latching onto an idea like religion or politics and becoming overly obsessed with it until it no longer suited him had he not shot Garfield. It is possible Charles would have become bored with politics fix as he had with evangelism and found something new to obsess over since his assassination James Garfield has fallen into relative obscurity but at the time of his election he carried with him a great deal of respect and potential born into Poverty Garfield exemplified the American ideal of pulling oneself up by their bootstraps he dedicated his life to helping others whether it was through his time in academia or in public office had Charles.

"As more police came to officer Colonel Side to help drag thirty nine year old Charles Goto away a mob formed at the Baltimore Ultimo and Potomac railroad station. The crowd chanted Lynch Him Lynch Him Charles had self-satisfied look on his face in his mind he'd carried out the mission God had laid out for him and as the officers dragged him out of the train station and into a police carriage Charles shouted I am a stalwart and Chester Arthur is now president except President James Garfield was still alive lying on the dirt covered unhygienic floor of the train station. He fought to stay conscious his teenage sons Harry and Jim. I'm back the crowd forming around them. Garfield whispered for water when he received a glass he struggled a sip-it vomiting as he he drank the first bullet had sliced cleanly through James's right arm however the second bullet had entered his back and lodged itself there. Dr Smith Townsend arrived within minutes of the shooting Garfield was barely conscious but able to speak townsend quickly made a concoction of Brandy and smelling salts that jolted his patient awake what happened next would prove move costly townsend took his unsterilized fingers which had touched the disgusting train station floor and inserted them directly flee into the wound and Garfield back he wasn't able to locate the bullet so the only purpose it served was to introduce of veritable Cesspool into the injury to examine him more thoroughly. Townsend decided they needed to get Garfield off the floor and away from the crowds. They hoisted the president onto a makeshift mattress and brought him to a private room during that time Townsend was joined by Dr Charles Purvis the chief surgeon at the Friedman's hospital the thirty nine year old would go down in history as the first black doctor to examine a US president immediately upon arrival he ordered that hot water bottles and blankets be wrapped around Garfield torso and legs to stimulate relate his fading pulse and counteract his clammy skin as the two doctors looked over Garfield the secretary of war Robert Todd Lincoln in had nightmarish flashbacks to when his father Abraham Lincoln was shot. He ordered for someone to find Doctor Willard Bliss Bliss Bliss was considered the premier experts in ballistics wounds after his experience as a surgeon during the civil war bliss arrived fifteen minutes later and and assumed control of Garfield Care like Townsend. He completely ignored sanitizing his hands before he started digging through Garfield wound wound antiseptic. This was a new concept in medicine that most American doctors were dubious about even worse than Townsend Bliss also also didn't sanitize the probes he used to search for the bullets nor did he give Garfield any kind of pain relieving tonic. His suffering was unbearable while bliss poked and prodded so much so that purpose demanded that bliss stop an audacious move for a black doctor to make against a white doctor but bliss ignored purposes protests meanwhile secretary of State James Blaine was met by other other cabinet members still in Shock Blaine realized that he recognized the shooter when pressed about where he'd seen him before he recalled all that Charles had pestered the State Department for Console ship job in Paris. It was impossible for it to be the same man blamed thought as the chaos at the train station raged on shooter Charles Guitar was on his way to the police station. He told officer colonel that he had a letter for Famed Union General William Tecumseh Sherman that needed to be delivered. Carney said he would handle it at police. Lee's headquarters. Charles pockets were emptied in all the excitement at the train station. No one had bothered to take away his pistol it. It wasn't until now that they've finally took the weapon into their possession. Word traveled fast about the assassination attempts mobs formed demanding Charles Charles B lynched the police decided to transport Charles to a more secure location district jail on the carriage ride over Charles believed that he was only in police custody for his own safety in no time at all General Sherman would free him from jail and the newly unstated President Chester Arthur would reward him with the Paris console ship for putting him in power for now he just sit and wait in his jail jail cell a sense of relief washed over him for successfully carrying out his divine mission. He was about to be famous for saving saving the country. Meanwhile back at Baltimore and Potomac Garfield asked to go back to the White House while it wasn't wasn't the most glamorous of places at that time it was infested with rodents broken floorboards and leaky pipes it was still cleaner than the train in station and it was away from the crowds eight men carried Garfield down the steps and into a horse drawn ambulance the mob that surrounded the the train station immediately quieted upon seeing the president's relieved that he was still alive. They finally arrived at the White House around eleven. Am about about an hour and a half after the shooting. Garfield was situated in a private room. A dozen doctors attended him overseen by Willard Bliss He repeatedly injected Garfield with morphine to ease the pain. The medicine caused Garfield become nauseous throughout the day despite fight the intense pain and repeated episodes of vomiting his spirits were actually rather high he joked with the doctors and asked about his wife the Krisha Krisha who was on her way home from New Jersey when she finally arrived at night at seven PM. The two spoke privately for less than twenty minutes. The conversation Asian gave Lucretia a sense of hope. The doctors however believed that Garfield wouldn't survive the night after a more thorough examination at the White House. The doctors concluded that his liver was severely damaged throughout the night. Bliss released updates to to the public on the president's condition. The bulletins contradicted the truth claiming he was feeling better as bliss was controlling public perception. He was also consolidating his authority. After gaining the trust of both Garfield and Lucretia Bliss ordered the dismissal of all the other doctors Terry's outraged over the coup. Many of these doctors told the press that bliss was actually doing more harm than good he disputed the accusations accusations continuing to spin his own narrative eventually list called in to highly respected surgeons to examine garfield mostly mostly as a way to defuse the blame should garfield condition worsen. Both surgeons individually inspected the president the only conclusion they could come. I'm too was that the liver didn't look damage as was initially believed but the president was clearly in grave condition throughout the day. Eh Garfield temperature spiked to triple digits in response navy engineers created the first White House air conditioning unit by having fans blow over blocks of ice. Though it helped cool the room down it was terribly loud and made the room humid causing Garfield to feel feel even more discomfort. The next few weeks were a roller coaster for Garfield. His condition seemed to get better then suddenly worse and then back again poss began to expel from his wound which doctors incorrectly took a good sign after the pus came severe rigors and an even higher fever signs of blood poisoning Garfield was drenched in sweat and fatigued at one point he scratched on a chalkboard strangulated Pro Republica or tortured for the Republic on July twenty third eighteen eighty one three weeks after the shooting the truth about Garfield condition finally broke the one of the other doctors told reporters that the president's health had worsened so much through Blissett neglect that he was almost certainly dying even bliss by that time recognize the president's worsening condition he believed that he had done all he medically could an an asked for help from other fields one person to answer the call was inventor and scientist Alexander Graham Bell on July twenty sixth eighteen eighty one bell visited the ailing Pale president. He brought a crude metal detector that would hopefully locate the bullet using electromagnetic waves. The device unfortunately didn't work but bell was determined after a few days of tinkering with the device device he returned to the White House on August first and try it again. They removed all metal objects from around. Garfield bed to avoid any interference appearance. They placed the device on Garfield chests. Where Bliss suspected the bullet was bell listened and heard a faint pulsating noise voice bliss took the results as confirmation? He released a bulletin saying that the bullet was lodged in Garfield fields abdomen wall above the groin but bell had doubts the next day he returned to the White House and asked if every metal object object was clear from the bed he discovered that under Garfield. Hey mattress was another one made entirely of criss crossed metal wires it. It'd be a sense that the White House would have a newly invented box spring but tobel. It was a shocking revelation. That may have tainted the test. Perhaps the bullet wasn't his abdomen at all and they were looking in the wrong section of his body. Unfortunately Bell was called back to Boston before he could run another test and in his absence Garfield was once more left in bliss incompetent care.

"In early November of eighteen eighty forty eight year old darkhorse candidate James Garfield was elected the twentieth president of the United States dates. His nomination in a fractured Republican Party was seen as a way to unify the two warring sides almost immediately Garfield Garfield set about appointing a cabinet in the months between the election and his March inauguration the fight between the Republican stalwarts and half breeds raged on specifically between Roscoe Conklin and James Blaine Garfield felt loyalty towards Blaine in his earlier years in the House of Representatives they were rivals but with the rise of conquering as well as blades ability to shift support to Garfield Nomination Nation during the convention his heart softened the two men promised to work together to unify the party and the country when word got got out that Garfield plan to appoint Blaine as the all important secretary of state the stalwarts were outraged conquering demanded <hes> that one of his stalwarts be given position to the next highest cabinet position Treasury Secretary Garfield instead chose a man who had no particular particular affiliation with either faction Senator William Windham chairman of the Senate's Appropriations Committee as Garfield rounded out his cabinet. He tried tried to strike a balance between where each member lied on these stalwart half breed spectrum as well as the geography of where they came from one appointment that seem I'm to please just about everyone within the Republican Party was that of Robert Todd Lincoln eldest son of Abraham Lincoln as secretary of war Dr despite being a stalwart himself lincoln had a strong reputation among both factions but conklin hated every appointment that Garfield made one of the most egregious came in the form of the postmaster general he had selected a stalwarts and a good friend of conch. Ling's Thomas James the President thought he was doing concha favor by appointing the stalwarts but ironically conquering didn't appreciate Garfield Making stalwart appointments without here's approval days before the inauguration conquering along with Vice President Chester barged into Garfield office unannounced just for over an hour conquering screamed at him charging him with neglecting the needs of the party. Garfield took the bereavement in silence. It's at the end of it. He smiled at conquering and made no promises or apologies for his actions. He was the president not conquering ongoing despite his best efforts at keeping things even Garfield cabinet was met with some criticism many could see blades influence and called Garfield out publicly for it but ultimately each decision Garfield made was his own finally on March march fourth eighteen eighty one as a layer of snow blanketed the capital forty nine year old. James Garfield was sworn into office his mother Elisa. An abolitionist Frederick Douglass sat on the dais with him because he had been so preoccupied with cabinet picks. Garfield didn't have much time to who right and inauguration speech in fact he had been up until three. AM working on it when it came time to finally deliver the oration. He seemed despondent and exhausted. The one portion of his speech that seemed inspired was about civil rights for Black Americans. He promised to protect attacked the newly freed community under the rights of the Constitution as well as writing the wrongs that had accumulated during the course of emancipation and reconstruction. He reinforced his idea. That education was key. If everyone in the north and the south was literate the wounds from the war could more easily Selebi healed. He concluded the speech. Discussing Civil Service reform a topic that made the politicians especially roscoe conquering squirm in their sheets in the days and weeks that followed Garfield was busy filling positions as mentioned before the White House. I had a fairly open door policy job seekers were allowed to enter the White House and leave their resumes. It was around this time that Garfield met his future assassin Charles Toe when he presented his application for the Paris Council ship along with a copy of his speech Garfield Against Handcock Talk Garfield forgot all about Charles the moment he left. He was busy running a nation. One of the first items of business was nominating Supreme Prem- Court justice for a seat that had been vacated the previous year before leaving office. Rutherford Hayes had nominated Stanley Matthews use but the Senate didn't confirm him instead waiting for the new president to make us election. James Garfield nominated Matthews again then in the closest vote in Supreme Court judicial history. Matthews was confirmed by a single vote next on the agenda was corruption corruption in the postal service in April Garfield ordered an investigation into alleged star route corruption star route described postal routes used by private contractors designated with an Asterisk or star in the registry during the grant and Hayes administrations government officials assigned these routes routes based on bribes instead of allowing the contractors to fairly bid on them rumors of corruption involving fraudulent bidding between private of it contractors had reached Garfield ears after suffering the humiliation of the credit mobilier and cash grab scandals. He knew he needed to stop the fraudulence as quickly as possible. When word got back to Garfield that two members of his campaign were linked to the scandal he told hold his Attorney General Wayne McVeigh and Postmaster General Thomas James to not only probe this ulcer to the bottom but to cut it out as Garfield was nominating Supreme Court justices and opening investigations. He was still locked in a battle with roscoe conquering over the soul soul of the Republican Party leading into April minor government positions were still open and Conklin continued to fight for his stalwarts. Garfield eventually actually gave the stalwarts a couple of points but this annoyed his moderate secretary of State James Blaine in the middle of March the battle between Lean Garfield and conquering came to a head when he appointed Senator William Robertson a bitter rival of conch. Ling's as a collector of Customs in New York Robertson had rallied against grant at the eighteen eighty convention and conquering was determined to make sure the staunch half breed supporter had had no position within the administration but Garfield appointed him anyway. It was a sign that the president was not going to be beholden to any side livid conquering ordered Thomas James and Wayne McVeigh both stalwarts to resign their posts as attorney general and postmaster general they I met with the Presidents but Garfield convinced both men to disobey conquering and remain in the cabinet at this point word of the feud between Garfield and unconquered had reached the press outside of conquering one of Garfield biggest rivals was his own vice president Chester Arthur a stalwart who was fiercely loyal to the president's rival when the press ran headlines about the feud Arthur defended not the president but conquering as punishment punishment Arthur wasn't allowed to enter the White House for several weeks unfortunately for conquering public opinion was mostly in Garfield fields. Favor conked could read the writing on the wall. William Robertson would soon be confirmed by the Senate as New York customs collector. It would be another another embarrassment.

"Fought for black suffrage. He firmly believed that in order order for the civil war to be truly considered victorious black Americans needed to have the right to vote but in eighteen sixty five letter to a friend Garfield revealed that the idea of black Americans becoming a political equal gave him a strong feeling of repugnance for all of his devotion to to civil rights and to abolishing slavery he still considered White People Superior James Garfield Congressional career throughout at the eighteen seventy s consisted of growing reputation of statesmanship and distaste for corruption. He was hailed for his ability to learn and study even the most boring and mundane spreadsheets finances caught his attention early on and he found himself on the committee on ways and means and the committee on appropriations by the early eighteen seventies Garfield now in his forties advocated for Department of Education. He believed that funds from public lands should be routed to pay for it however his congressional career was marred by two major scandals in the summer summer of eighteen seventy two garfield was connected to the credit mobilier scandal in which politicians received bribe money in exchange for votes that favored the Union Pacific Railroad Garfield never took the bribe but he did accept alone not realizing the implications. Congress ultimately absolved him of any wrongdoing but his association with the scandal followed him forever. The second transgression was known as the salary grab in eighteen seventy. Three Congress voted to give themselves a fifty percent raise including retroactive pay for lame doc congressman despite voting against the Bill Garfield was still chairman of the Committee of Appropriations many of his Ohio constituents several of whom we're failing to pay their far mortgages blamed him for what they considered theft by the Representatives Garfield was dejected. Clearly it was his lowest point as a congressman he had built up a reputation as honest and incorruptible then in the span of a year his name became synonymous with scandal and corruption by the mid eighteen seventies. The American people were sick of the fraudulence silence in Washington disdain for the spoils system in particular formed a groundswell finding its roots in Andrew Jackson's presidency. These spoil oil system consisted of hiring and firing civil servants based not on marriage but on political affiliation or campaign support by the time I am ulysses. s grant was president in the early eighteen seventies. The Spoil System had become so corrupt that even the public began to cry out for Change Rush in eighteen seventy six after two terms of scandal grant decided against running for third term Rutherford Hayes by by a single electoral vote was elected to replace him Hayes detested the spoils system and hope to change the appointment process this led to a division within the Republican Party. He's had promise to only serve for a single term and due to declining health. He kept that promise but in doing so the eighteen eighty. Republican election became chaos. James Garfield went into the convention in Chicago with the sense of foreboding the party was firmly divided between stalwart. Republicans led by roscoe conquering and half breed. The Republicans led by James Blaine the main issue that divided the two factions was political patronage stalwarts were in favor of tradition tradition. The spoils system and political machines half breeds wanted civil service reform. The stage was set for a stalwart versus half half breed showdown ulysses s grant running for a third term faced off against James Blaine and James Sherman but after two days of voting James James Garfield seemingly out of nowhere became the dark horse Republican nominee in the years since the civil war Garfield political radicalism Elizabeth had softened a bit going into the convention he leaned more towards the moderate half breeds his nomination represented compromise his and compromise also meant that stalwart chester a arthur was chosen to be his running mate a few months later in November of eighteen eighty. James Garfield became presence for the first and only time in US history. The offices of representative senator elect and president elect lacked were all held by a single person at the same time. Garfield was also the first sitting US representative to be elected president but now that Garfield was elected it meant that he was prone to the dangers of the office ironically. He seemed unconcerned with assassination shanna tents when General Sherman showed Garfield a letter about an increase in threats. He shrugged it off he said to Sherman assassination can be no more guarded against than death by lightning and it's best not to worry about either. James Garfield should have worried a little more within a year he would be struck not by lightning but by an assassin's bullet coming up James Garfield administration is stops in its infancy at the hands of Charles Ghetto now back to the story.

"James Garfield never had intentions of running for president in fact at at the beginning of the eighteen eighty Republican national convention in Chicago. Garfield wasn't even a candidates he was simply a representative from Ohio. Poo just just so happened to also be senator. Elect waiting for the upcoming term. The Republican Party was fractured. One faction was the stalwarts. It's led by roscoe coddling. These traditional Republicans wanted ulysses s grant to run for a third term on the other side or the more moderate half breeds they supported either Senator James Blaine or then Secretary of Treasury. John Sherman Garfield had thrown his support behind Sherman though mostly out of obligation to a fellow Ohioan the balloting process was long and arduous at first. I it seemed like neither of the factions would give an inch however. No candidate had enough votes to secure the nomination. It seemed as if they would be stuck in a deadlock on the second ballot. The much respected Garfield received a vote from a delegate from Pennsylvania Garfield shrugged it off clearly a throwaway vote on the next the delegates from Pennsylvania voted for Garfield again then again and then again and Garfield founded some using even flattering on the second day of voting the first few votes proved stagnant. Nothing changed but on the thirty fourth ballot Wisconsin delegates suddenly split their votes between grant and Garfield. What followed was a tidal wave of support for Garfield much to the shock of the forty seven year old senator elect at the end of the thirty six vote James Garfield the man who had no desire to run for office suddenly had three hundred ninety-nine votes twenty more than what was necessary to secure the nomination he was officially the Republican nominee soon he went onto defeat winifred hancock becoming the twentieth president of the United States. One one of the many men to campaign for Garfield was a short disheveled fellow from Illinois named Charles Guitao less than a year after stumping for for the new President Charles would shoot him twice Charlotte. Julia Tow was born on September eighth eighteen forty one on in Freeport Illinois to Luther and Jane Gaito Charles was the fourth of six children but the last to survive infancy when Charles was seven his mother passed away from unknown causes he was left to be raised by his older sister Francis and the deeply religious luther luther was a zealot who followed the teachings of John Humphrey noise noise believed in an idea called perfectionism through the power hour of prayer and the right education a person had the ability to become perfect spiritually and intellectually and thus free of Sin Luther forced his religious fanaticism upon Charles and in June eighteen sixty at the age of eighteen Charles joined noises.

They practiced an act called complex marriage. Essentially open relationships members were encouraged to have multiple sexual partners. Charles loved the idea of complex flex marriage. A sense of entitlement swelled in him. He felt he deserved these women. After the years of religious devotion instilled in him by his father however members of the united felt differently. Most of the women didn't participate in sexual relationships with Charles. They found his sense sense of entitlement and lack of help around the commune repulsive. They began calling him Charles. Get Out One member even jokingly referred to him <music> as a shaker. A religious sect that practiced celibacy as Charles frustration with the lack of intimacy grew a sudden belief that he was as a direct soldier of God entered his head. This intense notion grew as the years went on and by eighteen sixty six twenty five year old Charles was left Oneida believing that his godly work was needed elsewhere <music> after leaving the commune Charles Ghetto wandered around around the northeast aimlessly working odd jobs and living off a meager inheritance. Finally Charles decided to become a lawyer he wasn't is in very good at it and was said to go off on rambling tangents while in the courtroom many of his diatribes were religiously themed keeping to the belief that he was still one of God's soldiers he even quit law for a year to become travelling evangelical preacher throughout the Eighteen Seventies Charles Charles begged borrowed and stole to survive if he wasn't accepting charity Pete was scheming he attempted to scam people out of money through lawsuits lawsuits including two failed suits against the New York Herald and the Oneida community at one point during this period as a way to make money Charles is published a religious. Tome called the truth a companion to the Bible. The truth was almost entirely plagiarized from a book called the Burien Rian which was written by Oneida founder John Humphrey Noise. The book was an utter failure and Charles finally stopped trying to make money money through religion instead he found a new fixation politics at the beginning of eighteen eighty thirty nine and your role Charles Guitar was living in Boston when he read up on the political engagements of the day he discovered that he aligned with the Republican stalwarts and supporter of Ulysses s grant grant had already served as President for eight years from eighteen sixty nine to eighteen seventy six he it didn't seek a third term though it would be another seventy five years before the twenty second amendment put term limits on the presidency instead. He was was succeeded by Rutherford B Hayes. Unfortunately Hayes was wildly unpopular and it's sent the radical side of the Republican Party into a frenzy. They wanted grant back for a third term. Charles Guitao agreed with their assessment in the weeks leading up to the Republican National Convention in June in Eighteen Eighty Charles who had zero political experience spent his days writing the speech that he believed would ultimately help grand during his campaign pain. The public perception was that grant was going to win the nomination for the Republicans winifred handcock was the favourite among the Democrats Charles Arles titled His Speech Grant Against Handcock however when news came that James Garfield had won the nomination Charles simply he scratched out grants name and replaced it with Garfield with his speech in one hand and a small bag of the other Charles walked onto the deck of the steamship ship S S Donington he was headed to New York City where the Republican campaign headquarters was located Charles was ready to do his part to help get Garfield into the White House to spite his more moderate beliefs on the evening of June eleventh eighteen eighteen eighty as the SS Donington near the Long Island sound on the Connecticut River a thick layer of fog covered the water at around around eleven thirty pm the ship collided with its sister steamship the SS Narragansett Charles. Could Toko watched in horror as passengers from the Narragansett still in their nightgowns and pajamas rushed outside to see what had happened within minutes of the collision. The boiler room exploded setting the entire deck ablaze men women and children through themselves over the railing and into the water crew members from both ships attempted to rescue the drowning people in the river within thirty minutes of colliding the Narragansett sank roughly. Fifty people lost their lives. Meanwhile the stoning ten managed to stay afloat while another another ship city of New York came to its rescue when Charles stepped off the rescue ship in the early hours of June twelfth a renewed sense of purpose purpose weld within him surviving the collision confirmed that he was on the right course to fulfill his mission from God instead of traveling traveling around as an evangelist his true calling with to get James Garfield elected. No one was going to stop him. Charles Ghetto arrived in New York later that day determined to fulfil his mission he quickly printed off copies of his speech <unk> to distribute it around the city and throughout the Republican headquarters from then until the election Charles made regular trips to hotels and dining halls those were prominent republicans frequented he even managed to meet vice presidential nominee Chester Arthur and convinced him to let Charles read his speech at a small gathering with each passing day. Charles became more and more convinced that he was going to be instrumental in James's victory. He began to envision a reward for his efforts in the campaign. A console ship seemed like the appropriate thank you for all of his hard work on November second eighteen eighty James Garfield won the presidency for the next four months. Charles continued to make himself known own too powerful. Republicans still residing in New York. He knew that it was only a matter of time before Garfield began making appointments not not wanting to miss out he wrote to the president elect enquiring about becoming ambassador to Austria but he never got a response in the weeks leading up to the inauguration Charles Guitar.
