"The suffragist movement. In fact, Susan B. Anthony cast her first and only vote for president for Ulysses S. Grant. It was upstate New York. It was an illegal vote. She was tried, convicted and find Susan never paid the fine. Actually, the registrar's Rickon were sentenced to five days and grand commuted. Their sentence. But, um, Susan be entirely Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It's you know, at all opposed the 15th amendment unless they were going to be 1/16 Amendment. That would give women the right to vote. So it was really the you know, the women's movement comes directly out of the abolitionist movement to so many of those women was kind of like what happened here in the city civil rights, But within the 19 sixties, a lot of women also provided you know for black rights. Hey, what about women basically thing? Well, maybe trumps Voter Fraud Commission will use that story is evidence. Well, you see Susan B. Anthony Captain Illegal boat. How much? Does unfair rap by history. Tied together. You're writing Alexander Hamilton and now right and Grant because grants I think his general reputation was casual reputation is that he was a really bad president. Well, I guess I have a contrarian streak in my nature, because when I did Alexander Hamilton, he was either one for gotten or two demonized, you know, in Jefferson was glorified. On. So I think that the book and certainly the show, you know helped to rehabilitate his reputation. Ulysses S. Grant in 1948 Arthur Schlessinger did a poll of presidential historians write to grant Second from the bottom. Only one jihad Ng was considered worse and it was considered a completely failed presidency that was marked by scandals. Corruption, nepotism, cronyism, you name it and all those things happen Can What I try to argue in the book was that that was the minor story. The administration the major story. His Gran's crusade. To crush the Ku Klux Klan hires a wonderful Attorney General Amos Sacrament from Georgia. They use the new Justice Department. To bring 3000 indictments against the clan. They get more than 1000 convictions and his Frederick Douglass said afterwards. The slaughter and scourging of my people have, C said This seems to be much, much bigger. Story of his administration was kind of curious, Brian what we remembered what we don't remember about presidencies. Why was this whole story kind of buried? Where's the scandals lived on and I think it's you know, during grand second term in office, the Democrats know the words that you know the white South and then north and sympathizers. Take over Congress. They were very upset about reconstruction, which have been promoting bi racial society in the South s O. These Democratic investigating committees begin to probe Corruption in the Grant administration, and it was really their way. Of undercutting an administration and the reason I wanted to cut. It was not because of the scandals but because of reconstruction was considered much too pro black. Administration. Defenders of the statues and flying the Confederate flag say the Civil War wasn't about slavery. Now that you've been immersing yourself in that here with fresh eyes that era. How much was it about slavery? How much about state's rights in the absence of a good question? Because James Longstreet, who was Robert E. Lee's chief commander? Longstreet, said J. During the four years of the war. I never heard anything but slavery mentioned as the cause of the world. And in fact, after the Confederacy was formed in early 18 61. Alexander Stephens, who was the vice president of the Confederacy, said that the cornerstone of the federal of Confederacy is the idea that the black man is inferior that slavery is his natural state. And that Confederacy is the first state founded on this great principle. They were in shy back then about saying it. It was really just you know, this kind of ex post facto re writing. Of history that said, it was state's rights. You know the other thing, Brian is that 7 50,000 people died in the civil War, believe hundreds of thousands of people don't ever state's rights. Whoever strongly of you listeners may feel about this issue. I doubt that many of them would be willing to lay down their life for state's rights or federal rights, or whatever did the North ever seriously consider letting the South go? Like what was the point of holding onto the South by force, and so many thousands of people dying for that if they didn't share our values, or want to be in our club, there's certainly no there was a segment of the abolitionist movement that said, You know, state slavery is a stain on the nation and let them go. And you know on good riddance. Then there were other abolitionists who said that that was simply tow. Condemn. Black community in the south to the tender mercies and over the white supremacists. And so and that was kind of became the dominant force. But yes, there were a lot of people. Who did not want to go to war over that issue. So what do you make of events in Charlottesville and things like it? How much of an echo of unresolved issues from the civil war that persisted this day? Versus how much about new issues that just find their expression and contemporary white grievances and the Confederate flag really means something very different to people today. Then it did at that time. I think that you know the civil War is still it. Zenon healed wound, and we're still dealing with the unresolved issues of that, because they're these two competing narratives of what happened. You know, after the South militarily lost the war. In many ways, they won the peace. There was a school of thought called the Lost Cause that began to Essentially rewrite history romanticized the Confederacy. They said. No, it wasn't about slavery was bad state's rights. They argued that it was the Confederacy that was following in the footsteps of George Washington and the American Revolution. And, you know, most importantly, they said that reconstruction Which we now feel was a noble experiment in American life to try to create a bi racial society in the south. They said that it was a fiasco of corrupt carpetbag politicians and illiterate thought, black legislators. And so we still have, you know, in our schools, and they're these two different versions of what what happened. I should say, Monk, it Historians, you know you can find a historian is going to tell you that the cause of the war was with states rights, but that is still you know, toward and many southern schools and has become an article of faith. So two little things before you go one. Am I right? That President Ulysses S. Grant has something unusual in common with President Harry S. Truman. You know what? I might be a little in this show middle Initial doesn't stand for anything. I didn't. I didn't remember that with various to me. I mean, the story with Grant was that his real name was Hiram Ulysses Grant. He dropped the Hiram because stuck him with the initials hug. The kids used to tease him. He got teased, but boys having the end and after that hug, Absolutely. And then he's nominated for West Point by local congressman who sends in his name mistakenly as Ulysses S. Grant and grand for the rest of his life. Said that he s did for absolutely nothing. So is that true with Harry try believe that he was just named after double check this, but I believe that he was just named middle initial s Without its standing for anything. We looked it up for the Truman Library to compromise between the names of his grandfather's Anderson ship Truman and Solomon Young. So ship and Solomon, the two esses God, you know they were inspired by them, but it did not technically stand for anything. So on his birth certificate, it was just Harry S. Truman. So who's writing Grant? The musical. I think it's safe to say there won't be a great years ago Grants..

And the current world that we now live in. As we've been talking to you guys in teaching you for the past two weeks concerning the world as we know it. Now I want to give you a comet in university lesson here today through our global spiritual revolution broadcast. Concerning the this great revolution that is now taking place here in America called the Cube movement. Now, a lot of you have been given. Ah ah lot of misconceptions and a lot of lies concerning the queue movement. I believe the queue movement is of God. And allow me to explain that here and through the topic that we're going to be talking to you for the next 20 to 25 minutes. That is the history and the origins ofthe the queue movement again. The history and the origins of the Q movement now From a historical origination All foundation, the queue movement actually began. On the first of April in the year of 18 60. And one that one maybe asking themselves. What Bishop? Why are you teaching us concerning the Cube movement two days before the presidential election. Glad you asked. The calls. When President Donald J. Trump was elected nearly four years ago, it resurrected a movement of great Patriots, Okay. And cue personnel like myself on, so I want to give you a historical perspective for the next 20 minutes concerning the history. And the origins of the Q movement. So on the first of April in 18 63 major generals under President Abraham Lincoln Including an additional 22 generals of the North had designed a American Patriotic Organization, not a secret society, but a organization that would protect the American sovereignty off the first constitution. If you remember correctly beloved. Two weeks ago, the bishop was teaching you concerning on the origins of two constitutions. You and I are operating under the second constitution. The first constitution came through on the active 17 76 and ratify three times thereafter In 17 81 87 in 89. Which constituted the greatest nation on the face of the Earth that is the United States for America. To become a Christian constitutional republic. We were never designed by God Patriots to be a democratic nation. So we are a Christian constitutional republic built upon the word of God through on the vision of the founding fathers. So then the first constitution is the Constitution that is the off antic document. Actually revealing the mind of God through this revolution, call the United States for America, which has given birth to one of the greatest American revolutionary movements in American history here in the Western Hemisphere, and that is the cue movement. But some years later in through the act of 18 71. A catastrophic change happened in our nation. What you had a group of international bankers. An international elite, such as the Rob Childs, The Oppenheimer's The Warburg's. Those who went on to their generations went on to create the Federal Reserve system. During the month of December in 1913 off of the coast of the state of Georgia on Jackal Island. So then getting back to the second constant to Shin Of 18 71. It was put upon the United States of America undue pressure. From both the international bankers through the Rothschilds. In concert with the global Vatican system through Pope pious the night Now I am not castigating my Catholic brothers, a sister's throughout New York City. European honest stationed throughout the world. My Simon here today as you are, and I are about to enter. Into the most critical the most important election of our lifetime. This coming Tuesday on the third of November. But I wanted to lay a historical foundation in this during this global when I call Master class tonight, okay concerning the history in the origins of the Q movement. So the second constitution through the act of 18 71, with pressure by both the raw Challenge Dynasty out of Britain. In concert with the Vatican order through Pope. Pious the knife put undue pressure upon President Ulysses S. Grant in 18 71. To remove the contents of the first constitution. Of 17 76 that was later ratified in 17 81 87 in 89. That now calls the United States to go from the United States for America. To the United States of America. As a corporation via the act of 18 71. Sold in on the first of April in 18 60. 25 generals, led by three generals who had design the origination of what we called the Q movement today. Major General George McKellen. Major General Henry W. Halleck. A major general Winfield Scott. Along with an additional 22 northern generals created it, not a secret society. But an American patriotic movement called cute Now, why would these great generals Whose responsibility was not only to protect President Abraham Lincoln. But also to protect the sovereignty off the first constitution. And 17 76. Now, if you examine rabbinical theology, the letter Q is a letter which means light source Capita. L i g H T. In other words, cue the very premise and revelatory any sight of Q. It represents exposing the darkness through the light. Or taking the darkness, bringing it into the light there by the light, exposing the darkness. Now to you Biblical students. You and I know that we have 66 books in the word of the Lord that you and I called the Bible which comes from the Greek word Billy off, which means the book The word of God. But originally going back to the 3 25 80 conference in icing Turkey, it was Constantine and Pope Sylvester. Who had subtract it. Approximate 20 books from the original cannon. Many years later during the year of 16 66 through the same Vatican order, with the help off their military industrial complex, called the Joshua Secret Society. Took out an additional 25 books. So another words, the president, word of God is missing. What we call a 45 degree angle ofthe gods thinking So 45 books had been was extracted by the Vatican. Now I am not castigating. My brother's Assis is my assignment here. For the next 10 to 15 minutes is to lay a proper foundation concerning.

"Its section rates quote the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race color or previous condition of servitude. Close quote. Not to overstate ulysses role in the amendment, but the presidential election of eighteen sixty eight was largely a referendum on reconstruction. The motto of Ulysses Democratic Opponent, Horatio Seymour was. And I quote this is a white man's country let white men rule. Close quote. Yeah. No beating around the Bush there. And while you list won the election by Commanding Electoral College, Victory of two hundred, fourteen to eighty. He only won the popular vote three million to two point seven. He still would have won the electoral college without black ballots but not the popular vote. That means reconstruction still on a knife's edge. If it's last it will need voting black citizens. I can't stress that last point. Enough. I. Let's not forget that many northern states still deny black Americans enfranchisement. By the eighteen sixty election, only eight northern states had given black men the vote. In other words this amendment is a game changer, not just in the south at across the nation. Second, euless hopes the Fifteenth Amendment will enable black. Americans to protect themselves. Literally, a number of ex confederates have taken to vigilantism or terrorism rather to fight the extension of civil rights to black Americans. We got an example of that in the open to the last episode with the eighteen, sixty six New Orleans massacre. And that was just one instance of many. Some bent on this hate based violence or even organizing. One such group is called the Ku Klux. Klan and yes I'll definitely go into more detail on it in a later episode promise. This organization has worried you list for years he still pissed that his. President. Andrew, Johnson refused to take action against them. Yet for all the good the fifteenth amendment does for Black Men. It fails women. As with the mail based allocation of Electoral College votes in the fourteen th minute women's suffrage is feel the sting of being passed up. Again Susan. B.. Anthony flat out opposes the fifteenth because of this exclusion. Elizabeth, Katie, Stanton, and others immediately start lobbying Congress for women suffrage granting sixteenth amendment. A have to imagine first lady Julia Grant isn't happy either given how vocal she gets about her support of women's suffrage at her White House socials. But Alas. You're still decades away from such an amendment. One last thing the fifteenth, amendment does though. It alters the relationship between the states and federal government. It does. So with it's one sentence long section to. Quote, the Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. Close quote. See The fourteenth amendment might penalize states for excluding any male citizens from voting but fifteenth straight up takes the question of civil rights out of the hands of estates in gives it to the feds. This trend will continue. Historian James McPherson points this out so well that like biographer Rauscher now I'm going to borrow his analysis as well. Eleven of the first twelve amendments constrain federal power while six of the next seven that is thirteen through nineteen enlargement. Yeah. Let that sink in. We are witnessing a real shift in American. Political. Thought and balance of power. So, at least for now, it looks like reconstruction is working and ulysses is no small part of that. He welcomes black officials like Louisiana. Lieutenant Governor Oscar J done to the. White. House. He means black men as ambassadors, I sending Ebeneezer de Bassett to Haiti and James Milton Turner to Beria. Meanwhile. Hundreds of black men are appointed to various positions in the federal government from customs, collections to clerks and more. Forgive quick interjection. I can't help but think how much Edwin Stanton would have loved to have seen these changes. Sadly, congestive heart failure claimed the life of Lincoln's cantankerous war secretary last year on Christmas Eve eighteen sixty nine just days after the Senate confirmed him to his dream job of supreme. Court. Justice. Rest in Peace Mars You listen also set something of a record as he brings. Jews into the administration. And there's a crucial backstory here. During the Civil Wars Vicksburg campaign, then general grant was frustrated with wartime profiteers buying cotton, thereby indirectly funding the very army shooting at his men. Okay that makes sense. Unfortunately. He bought into the Anti Semitism of the day and blamed Jews for the illegal trade. On December seventeenth eighteenth sixty two he issued general order number eleven which states that quote the Jews as a class violating every regulation of trade established by the Treasury Department and also department orders. Are Hereby expelled from the Department within twenty four hours from the receipt of this order. Close quote. Brought his attention, a surprised and disappointed president. Lincoln sent orders Teela's to revoke the order immediately. In eighteen seventy however now, president grant appoints Jews to dozens of offices including the first ever Jewish territorial governor in Washington. Rabbi. Is it mayor wise says that this territorial governorship quote shows that President Grant has revoked general grants notorious. Order. Number Eleven close quote. You. Appears to be genuinely repentant. Finally. I'll remind you that our youthful general-turned-presidents spoke of wanting to study the treatment of native Americans and do better. Right off the bat you let's get one thing right by getting General Ille- Parker put in his commissioner of Indian, Affairs Now in case you've forgotten who is he was on ulysses staff during the war. He wrote up the surrender at Apple Matic's. He's also a Seneca Satan. That's right. Ellie is a native American, and he's the first one to be in charge of the United States relations with indigenous peoples. With. Elise aid you listen acts what he calls his peace policy. Just as he said, regarding reconstruction during his presidential campaign euless wants peace. Hoping to achieve that with indigenous peoples he establishes a ten civilians strong board of Indian commissioners to provide oversight for the Bureau of Indian Affairs? He then actually listened to their advice. At their recommendation, the president ends the use of political appointees Indian agents. They'll be hiring those who want peace, which often means quakers. To overstate or Mantis the peace policy is far from perfect. Between, being pressed areas of poor soil for farming called reservations and not wanting to lose their way of life native Americans are on board with quote. Unquote civilizing. Meanwhile White Americans are flocking west pushing indigenous peoples, offering central lands and expecting the US army to protect them in the process. With so much more to say here but for I think the third time today, let me just say there's a lot going on at once and we'll circle back to these stories properly in later episodes. For now, let's stick with the grant administration. In eighteen seventy two euless goes. Up. For. Reelection. But. Just like his entire presidency. The election will be rocked by scandal. This one involves vp Schuyler Colfax and a railroad construction company known as Credit Mobilier of America. It seems that for the past five years or so the guys over at credit mobilier been swindling the federal government. They've been overbilling for railroad construction costs on federally funded builds and pocketing the extra cash. But it gets worse. Back in eighteen sixty seven a few congressman got suspicious of the company's inflated costs and tried to launch an investigation. The company's directors couldn't have that. So they bribed at least a dozen congressmen with discounts on stock in the company and the investigation died. Then, speaker of the House Schuyler Colfax was one of the men who accepted the bribes. Now in eighteen seventy, two euless learns about scholars part in the scam in dumps him from the presidential ticket. Good Call Ulysses. Current Speaker of the House James Blaine won't let the scam go that easily. You think one guy losing vp slot is enough. Not. For James. He opens an actual investigation stating quote, a charge of bribery of members is the gravest that can be made in a legislative body. It seems to me that this charged demands prompt thorough and impartial investigation close quote. The credit mobilier fair almost outshines the election of eighteen, seventy two.

"Need to go back a century and a quarter farther to The race between Democrats Samuel Tilden and Republican Rutherford B. Hayes. And welcome to our AM glad to be here before we look at the drum of 18 76. Let's just speak for a moment about the year 2000. The drama there stemmed from the fact that Bush and Gore in the decisive swing state of Florida were actually tied right in terms of actually tabulated votes. It was pretty much a time hence the obsession with recounts. It just happened to be that incredibly rare election where in the sea state the vote was time very different in Hayes versus the Democrat, Tilden. Just to contextualize, though for most of the 19th century, the Republicans were the mainly northern anti slavery party and the Democrats, pro slavery and mainly Southern And this race hinged on racial justice in post Civil War America. How so military reconstruction of the South had pretty much peeked under the incumbent President Ulysses S. Grant, who was in his second term in 18, 76. And Ah, big, overwhelming question between the two parties. Was whether further federal efforts to guarantee black political rights, including voting rights should continue around. And passions ran high in 2000. Bush v. Gore attracted just a smidge over 50% of the eligible voters and hes ve Tilden 82% turnout, which is the highest in American history. Okay, So it's election night, it looks like Tilden had handily prevailed in the popular vote. He won by 4% points. But comparison Hillary Clinton now pulled Trump by 2% points in the popular vote. But then all hell broke loose. What changed? Well on election night is, as you indicated it looked like Tilden had one. But he was one electoral votes shy, Oh, majority. And returns weren't complete from three southern states that were very closely contested Florida, South Carolina and Louisiana and also from Oregon. And on election night someone it's it's kind of disputed who it was at the Republican National Headquarters noticed that if all four of those states held for Hayes He win by one electoral vote. So telegraphs were sent out to the Republican Party's in those four states, urging them to stand fast and that became part of sort of a democratic conspiracy theory is tow want. Tilden wasn't elected. You know, I'm puzzled that three of those states were southern states and that they were so close. Was that because of the new black vote? Well, yes, I mean, for years after the civil War, Much of the ex Confederate south was under military occupation by the federal government, insisting on black voting rights by 18 76 all but three Southern states, though Had finally transitioned from reconstruction to what the locals called redemption, which meant a restoration of white supremacy. Florida Louisiana in South Carolina with the last states where they were federal troops present. During the election, so they were kind of the last of the reconstruction states and what was done to try to sort this all out. Part of the problem was the Constitution is wasn't is maddeningly. Vague about electoral college disputes. It stipulates that electoral votes should be open and read by the president of the US Senate, which is typically the vice president and the sort of fireball of Congress and then then you have inauguration. But in all four of the states, we're talking about the three in the South. And in Oregon, you had competing slates of electors being sent into Washington. So the big question was, which do you choose as authentic? And obviously, they were powerful partisan differences on that question and fear that a new civil war could break out of one part of the other imposed its will in this uncertain situation. Okay. Talk of civil war breaking out. How serious was that threat? Pretty serious. You have to remember that this was no barely over a decade after the actual civil war again did. The two parties were very much aligned with, you know, the Republicans with the union calls and frankly, the Democratic party was dominated by the ex, Confederate South, and Democrats had been how the power since the 18 fifties. And they viewed this as a clear effort by Republicans to steal an election that they had one and again, the popular vote argument loomed large. There was talk of hundreds of thousands of Democrats marching on Washington, too. Vindicate Tilden's victory. At the same time, there was violence still going on in these southern states where there was a last ditch battle for control of state governments, you know particular in South Carolina, which had a horrible racial massacre. In that election year, basically white terrorists attacking black militia, killing hundreds of them, so it was pretty tense time. And this went on, not for days or weeks. But for months until there was a least nominally bipartisan commission formed to try to break the stalemate. The Republicans control the Senate and the Democrats controlled the house. So you had a prospect of the vice president who was a Republican, you know, announcing one slight of Victor's in the House. Was threatening to block that Neither side really wanted another civil war, so they created on electoral commission designed to be perfectly balanced My party With the top breaking vote being Supreme Court Justice David Davis. Who is perceived as an independent, but that didn't want Democrats in Illinois pointed Davis to a U S Senate seat and he promptly resigned from the commission. They tried to essentially bribe him with the Senate. See, it backfired horribly, and in fact, his replacement on the commission was a Republican appointed Spring Court justice. Who proceeded to produce an 8 to 7 vote for Hayes and all four contested state's giving him the electoral college about one vote. And why did that not settled the issue than in there? This commission was of questionable constitutional Providence to begin with and again two Democrats,.

"Lewis ran out of the house without stopping to put her coat or boots on, and her younger brother Isaiah went with her, she rode out to the men, and she managed to pull them into the skiff before rowing them back to the lighthouse to warm up and wait out the storm this time, Ida. Herself had to recover from both hypothermia and frostbitten feet. This rescue really made IDA. Lewis famous people called her. The Grace Darling of America grace. Darling was the daughter of William Darling. Keeper of Long Stone Lighthouse off the coast of Northumberland grace had helped her father rescued nine survivors of a shipwreck on September seventh of eighteen, thirty eight. Grace. Darling became really famous for this. She was depicted in artwork and sheet music printed of musical compositions that were written in her honor Queen Victoria Australia her a personal letter along the same lines. People wrote and printed sheet music for IDA. Lewis and they depicted her rescue in artwork, some of which visibly resembled the depictions of Grace Darling in another similarity. President Ulysses s grant and Vice President Schuyler Colfax each visited Lewis in eighteen, sixty nine. There's a story about this visit with grant. Grant road out to the lighthouse and then got his feet wet while he was trying to get out of his boat, but said quote. I've come to see idol Louis and to see her I'd get wet up to my armpits if necessary. That is a charming story, but in reality it seems like she met the president while he was in Newport and she was the one who went into Newport to meet him. The city of Newport renamed the Fourth of July eighteen sixty-nine. Item, Lewis Day girls were scarves with his name on them tied in the way she often were her own money was raised by subscription to build her a very fancy and completely impractical rowboat, which was called the rescue. It was made of Mahogany with Velvet Cushions Gilt edges and wrought copper fastenings, The New York Times described it as a quote, beautiful and costly boat, and it was paraded around the streets of Newport before it was presented to her since Lewis also needed a place to. To store this very impractical boat financier, James. Fisk built her a boat house for it. He also gave her a set of gold plated or locks the people of Newport, also gave her various banners and flags and other adornments for the rescue, meanwhile, Louis kept her own much more practical skiff, which was the courageous child of Columbia for her everyday use on July, thirty, first eighteen, sixty nine Louis was on the cover of Harper's weekly with the publication, calling her the heroine of Newport. She was written up in other publications as well, and she was frequently photographed both in studios and around Lime Rock, also in eighteen, sixty nine, the psoriasis society, a professional women's organization made her an honorary member. The lifesaving Benevolent Association also awarded her Silver Medal in recognition for the rescue of the two soldiers apart from Ali's honors and awards. There was kind of a media frenzy and for a while Louis XV. Xv Fame intruded upon her regular life at the lighthouse visitors and well-wishers road out to lime rock to try to meet her by her father's couch.

"And unexpectedly. Yeah so I feel like it's like the most failsafe failsafe is just like if all else fails after this amount of time. It's over yeah. I mean we'll see how that works out and I don't I mean it'd be like we'll see how this works out for you but we'll see how it works out in the next New York City Council election because literally ladies terminals like three at least recorders and I think it's more of the New York. City Council is limited out in two thousand twenty one. Let's see there's GonNa be like five to sell the people who are newly elected last cycle for your show. We're going to be like the only ones they're presuming that they get reelected jar and everybody else is going to be new and I just feel like it's like a test case like you couldn't. It's not something that like scientifically you could ever construct in a laboratory situation Yeah we gotTA DO TO FEEL. This is like an. I really hope that the impact the political science powers that be are like using this as the opportunity that it is which is to study out affects functional government but according to the terminal interim com. You can agree or disagree with their mission in life. But here's what they say. A term limit is term limits set a legal restriction on the length of time in elected official may hold office term limit laws affect how many terms and how many years an individual may hold a specific office. Love it so it's like if you're in this position you have this many years here in this position. Yeah those many years not all the same as long as it can also like. We'll talk about it later. But there's like the idea of having your serving two terms or like ten years because if your term is four new come in case you're taking over seventy else like it. Does that count as a part of attorney Blah Blah Blah. Well let's start at the head of the government. The executive this is from Jay store. Peter fewer her great. Thank you and the Constitution Centre Scott bomb boy. This is what they had to say. So the Twenty Second Amendment to the Constitution proposed by Congress in nineteen forty seven and ratified by the states in nineteen fifty one confines any president to elected terms. And don't you know I I gave you the the Constitution Heart? I love her. So section. One of the Twenty Second Amendment Reads. No person shall be elected to office to the president more than twice and no person who has held the office of President or activists president for more than two years of a term to which some other persons was elected. President shall be elected to the office of president more than once long sentences very long we that was the first period. Okay next sentence but this article shall not apply to any persons holding the office of President Win. This article was proposed by Congress and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President or acting as president during the term. Within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as president during the remainder of such term. I'm going to run out of air so that all that's the that's the action one of the Second Amendment and not as sentences. I Love I love her. Like this was written in nineteen forty seven so it's been nearly two hundred years since our baby girl. The constitution was written at adopted. The style like they didn't have to ride. I like those. You could have been like if you're president. You can only be here for two years or term. Sorry and then some supplementary things right. That's it like we weren't we weren't writing like this in nineteen forty seven like we were. We were not talking like this. I'm like you're just trying to prove you can keep with the theme and I get it by like this. Can You can maintain the branches. Yeah no it's it's. It's a lot okay. So proponents argued that the amendment was needed to ratify a sacred American tradition. Everything's sacred. Everything's varies as Riveria. Very sacred begun by George Washington and not a president should step away from his duties. After filling eight years. I love it we just throw it back to George get what. What W W G Day? What would george do he would do terms? He would do terms and step away he would step away. Yeah he would say low. Say Away Sail Away. Sell away my favorite of all time. I love an yeah. It's very good. It's her best work but also I feel like it plays nicely. If we're going harkening back to the George Washington on the Barge League hundred percent I lay. I feel like George Washington did not die. He just got on a boat and set sail and was seen again. That's how I that's the energy that George gives me is like I must go now and steps onto the boat and rides into the sunset which is also the end of Lord of the rings so in many ways in many ways they're the same opponents opponents at the time argued that the amendment was a Republican reaction to Franklin D Roosevelt. The only president ever elected more than twice. I mean yeah it. One hundred percent was fifty are was but also like I don't know maybe it's because I'm just sort of a very liberal minded young human I just sort of like look. Fdr was dealing with the Nazis. He was dealing with the Great Depression. He was dealing with building all of these social programs to get us out of the Great Depression. He needed more time. But then you're not for term limits I am you caught me. I'm just saying in particular instance. I think it works. Look I can have my cake and eat it too. I WANNA choose on a case-by-case basis which is the least thing thing in the world okay you caught me. You called me out. You called me out. Look convince me. Great but I I. I understand why they wanted. Fdr terms but I'm also like FDR FDR had to deal with more than any other president. Abraham you know 'cause rival war was very stressful but I'm just like FDR was like you. We put a lot on his plate. We put a lot on his plate. And I couldn't walk anymore so there's just a lot. Republicans are going back to FDR REPUBLICANS. Were WORRIED ABOUT ANOTHER NEW DEAL? Democrat monopolizing the presidency for foreseeable future sure. The only extension allowed is for a vice president who fills out a presidential term who then wins two election. So that's what we're talking about. Where like for example? Somebody like Johnson who after JFK was shy and he immediately took over for JFK is then eligible for run hope to allow JFK time and then can run for two more terms even though he elected not to run the second time right could have but this wasn't the first time presidential term limits were brought up during the constitutional convention in seventeen eighty seven. The delegates considered a fixed term limit for the chief executive among several options initial ideas included a three year or seven year term of office limited to one term when delegates could not agree on a solution. The question was referred to the Committee on Postponed Matters. I included purely because that is an excellent committee. Name Medium Postponed Matter Committee The heads of the comedian postponed matters. And today we're talking about time limit and we'll finish the day on the electoral college after lunch. Did you read ahead? No I just knew that. They saved the electoral. Do you remember. We did an episode on the Electoral College and in that episode. We talked about how that was a last day decision. Yes he's yeah so what I've done is I've remembered what I've learned all right. Well that's your fucking arden are fighting. Where actually fighting because you called me out on being wishy washy term limits because I stand. Fdr Yeah Okay. No I just I did remember but we oh okay so but let's all agree on the fact that we simply love. The committee on postponed matters agreed. And this committee included Governor Morris and James Madison. Feel like James. How does he didn't James? Right the constitution. He's he's all okay. I wrote it and now I'm just going to deal with the postpone stuff and then I'm also going to be president and I'm also like a joke of all trades right. I really James of all trades some of your best work. Thank you so much fun fact which I've already read. That committee devised the Electoral College and a four year term for the president with no term limits among other important innovations. Yeah Yeah like wait a leave it to the last minute guys the last minute and just be like actually. We're we're GONNA take a middle of the. They wanted like three to seven year term for your terms they decided and then they were like the Electoral College. You figure it out. We give you the name. I love that. They seem to be very confused with the executive since the electoral college and term limits were in and What's IT called postpone matters? Yes okay doubts about unlimited presidential terms of office did not fade away after President Washington set the unofficial two term president in one thousand nine hundred and seventeen ninety six. Washington's reluctance to serve than two terms was more about his tolerance for the job rather than making a political statement. George didn't want this job. Though he was just wanted to do was hobbies. He had a mouthful of water and he was just like. I can't does your I'm tired of wondering illusionary war. It was just tired. I don't think he liked politics. Do you guys are giving daddy a headache. I'm literally hoster James. Would in my head. Is Charlie sensitive this? He didn't want any of it George anyways so. He stepped away from a third term in in large part because he was reluctant reluctant president in the first place. He only accepted a second term because of political pleadings and pressure from allies such as drama Queen of the show Alexander Hamilton. I feel like he just came and was like George. You have to. You have to do it bill. Sherie ALEX YEP Heathrow fit in Washington was like if you stop shouting against get germs. Yeah I will do a second term I will do it. But you're screaming or screaming at me. You're screaming at me. I you know what I've conceded to do stuff because somebody's upset not necessarily be president again but I but other things I'm like. Okay Okay Okay. Okay means much you okay? I did not know this. Was that important to you. Let's see where are we by the end of his second term? In seventeen ninety six Washington had grown very wary of growing political partnership and the growth of the parties. He didn't want it. I don't like Oh this is going. I told you guys know political parties. Or maybe he hadn't given that speech yet but he was feeling no political parties to political parties as bad your mic partisanship. We're all one nation under gorge indivisible. Yep Congress considered early versions of presidential term limit amendments in eighteen o three and eighteen o eight and the Senate approved term limit resolutions in eighteen twenty four and eighteen twenty six only to be rejected by the house. They really try. They were like this is not be like comets going to be an issue. The controversy over President Ulysses S. Grant's you remember it. But potential third term candidacy in eighteen. Seventy six and eighteen eighty led to a spate Wow I know. Bates of proposed term limit amendments in eighteen seventy six. The House passed a resolution that quote the precedent established by Washington and other presidents of the United States in retiring from the presidential office after their second term has become by universal concurrence apart of our republican system of government. Yes yeah I was just feel like a bunch of Statistics. On like why presidents only served one or two terms like a lot of times they died like the the got sick or whatever it was and also like. H- H is you it ages. You did you see like the modern. Because we don't have older the modern presidents like when they're first in office and when there is go right. Yeah well but I mean both him and W like it's profound in grades it. It's eight years sure. There's an aging that happens like it's profound and also how quickly it happens. Like Obama was gray after his first term. He did not leave white he got. He was midway white-haired. So it's just very stressful. It's very stressful. There's also like we just live longer. Not like a fifty is very different from now than it is from a fifty back then in some ways. It's too young for the president now. Yeah Yeah I mean yes. I'm making a comment about those candidates. Right now are in their eighties. I mean I'm just like it's interesting. How the president at least is just the the age you're running is just so much later it so much later. There's also I mean there is something to be said for the parties like if you just have more parties. Yeah Oh yeah that'll keep. The competition is much more fierce. Yeah between the parties what George would want and you would want him more okay. So that's the executive term limits basically the president the legislative term limits action..
