"There is the place to practice. I like that your life is meditation means that you don't confine you know your practice to the meditation hole in a way it's not about sitting and getting good at sitting there. A frog can sit all day. You know what that's great. That's good You're not trying to get good at just sitting there doing nothing. We have to use what we learn in those depths than and really embody it moment to moment. You know as best as we can and it sounds it sounds a little ideal in it is right off because life is a lot messier than that but even if we can get five percent more awake difference five percent less reactive. Five percent less caught in our thoughts and reactions What a big difference you know. And obviously we have the rest of our lives to practice And that can seem overwhelming but again it comes down to just this. Where are you now and are you away or are you caught something you know so used to have this idea of the monk and then his mark right so the mom be in the meditation whole is mocking meditation hall and then mark in the real world in air quotes with was crises to you.

David Rice Atchison: President For A Day?
"Rice was a democratic senator from the state of missouri. He served in the senate for twelve years from eighteen. Forty three to eighteen fifty five. He had a reputation for being extremely pro. Slavery he owned. Slaves supported all of the slave state issues in the run up to the civil war and when the war finally commenced he served in the confederate army as a brigadier general commanding missouri troops. So he's not the finest of people to sit in the upper chamber of congress. Quite frankly if it wasn't for the events that i'll be discussing this episode david. Rice atchison would probably be mostly forgotten to history i. I came across his name years ago and children's book of fun facts which said that he was the president of the united states for one day. This fact has been repeated on and off for over one hundred and fifty years in fact the words president of the united states for one day are on his tombstone in missouri as sort of a testament to his greatest achievement. So is this true. Was david rice. Atchison really the president of the united states for a single day to answer the question. We need to understand exactly what happened in the election of eighteen. Forty eight week party. Candidate zachary taylor comfortably. Defeated democrat lewis. Cass and free soil candidate. Martin van buren incoming president. James polka made a pledge to seek a single term in office and he honored that pledge by not. Running taylor was a career military man who had never expressed any political opinions prior to the election. And in fact he had never voted. He had a great deal of success as a general during the mexican american war which led to his popularity in calls for him to run for president. He wasn't fact recruited by both the whigs and the democrats. The two major political parties at the time to seek office prior to the passage of the twentieth amendment to the constitution the president and all members of congress would take office at noon on march fourth. This lengthy lame duck period made more sense when everyone had to travel by horseback. And that's why was eventually changed. Nonetheless march fourth was the date everyone took office in eighteen forty nine march fourth landed on a sunday. Zachary taylor being a devout man. Didn't want to have his inauguration ceremony. Take place on the sabbath so he postponed one day until monday. March fifth is vice. President millard fillmore also delayed his oath of office until march fifth according to the law at the time which was the presidential succession act of seventeen ninety to the next person in line to the presidency after the vice president was the president pro. Temporary of the united states senate. The vice president is technically the president of the senate. The president pro temporary is the person who presides over the senate when the vice president is not present. The president temporary was david rice. Atchison at the time the position was actually a competitive election today. The president pro temporary is just the senior ranking member of the majority party in the senate. So the argument is that because neither zachary taylor nor millard fillmore didn't take the oath of office on march fourth and waited until march fifth that they weren't president from noon on march fourth until noon on march fifth. That means that the next in line would have been the president pro. Temporary of the senate david rice. So is this true and does this argument. Hold water. The answer is pretty clear in the answer is no and there are a whole bunch of reasons. Why this is the case. I while the constitution does stipulate that the president and the vice president must take the oath of office it only says quote before he enters upon the execution of his office unquote. This is legal hair-splitting but it means before president can do anything presidential e- sign a law. Appoint officials signed a treaty etc. They must i take the oath of office however they can still be the president before taking the oath to illustrate the point. President kennedy was shot at twelve thirty pm on november. Twenty second nineteen sixty three. He was declared dead at one thirty three. Pm and lyndon johnson took the oath of office on air force one at two thirty eight pm. The moment president kennedy was dead. Or at least claire dead. Lyndon johnson became the president in the same way that someone becomes a king the moment the old king dead even if they haven't been coronated. The oath of office is just a way to legally unlock the powers of the presidency after becoming president. As i said this is legal hair-splitting and for all practical purposes it doesn't really matter but for the twenty four hour period before the oath of office zachary. Taylor was the president. If there was an emergency you could have quickly taken the oath of office in private and without a public ceremony and dealt with the crisis as president. The second argument as to why atkinson was never president is that he never took the oath of office. Either if taylor is in president. Because he didn't take the oath of office than atkinson also can't be president by the same logic. The third argument is that he officially wasn't the president pro. Tempore e of the senate. He was the president pro temporary during the previous session of congress. His term expired on march fourth at noon. Just like the presidential term. Did he needed to be reelected again. On march fifth which he was moreover. This wasn't the first time that this had happened in eighteen. Twenty one james monroe delay taking the oath by a day for the exact same reason yet known assumes that someone else was president for a day at johnson himself never claimed to be president at the time. No one seriously thought he was the president. And there's nothing in the congressional record to indicate that he was there are no constitutional scholars presidential historians or even atkinson's owned biographer. Who thinks that he was actually president at best. If you applied a very strict rule to the taking of the oath to become president then you could maybe say that there was a one day interregnum where there was no president but it doesn't follow that atkinson was president.
"van buren" Discussed on Mindfulness Mode
"Transform the many difficult aspects of life and he holds a bachelors degree in religious studies and in recent years has become a best selling author so mindful tribe. You might want to get your hands on one of these books because they're both excellent and I was going to talk about a couple of little stories that you shared one when you went to the silent retreat and you decided to go for a little stroll in your head. Sign around your neck that said. Please don't talk to me and then tell us what happened your own words. It was really quite interesting. Oh god that was a. That was an interesting retreat so i was at a point in my life where i thought i needed to meditate longer harder i needed to attain buddha or enlightenment or have this oneness experience that would somehow solve my life. I mean and this is really where my book. Your life is meditation kind of you know. That's where came from because there was such an intense gap between what i thought. My daily life was and my spiritual life so i was like you know what these retreats that i'm going on. They're not hard enough. So i thought i'm gonna make my own retreat and i'm gonna make it really intense and by the end of the five days. I'm surely going to be enlightened and all will be well be compassionate all the time. I'd be happy all the time. I won't have to deal with these things. I don't like and i mean that's a lotta who high you know nobody. Nobody can save you from life. I mean there's no like technique or method or amount of meditation. I mean life is just what it is and there's nothing that's going to save you from. It took me a long time to learn that But this was one of those situations where. I was taking way too seriously and i thought you know i know how to attain this enlightenment or experience and i'm gonna go really hard so i set it all up at this retreat center. They gave me a sign. I don't know exactly what it said. I think it said like silent or something like you know. Don't talk or something. Something to let other retreating retreat. I know that you know. Don't talk to this guy. He's on a silent personal retreat so they have showed me a path. You know when i first got there to do some walking meditation or just a little hike. If i wanted to was wasn't very big but it was. You know a fairly simple path. So when i went later on in the evening to take a break from the intense forcing myself to do i was out there on the hike and starting to get dark and i'm like why am i not back yet. I was just so confused. So i must have mindfully got very lost and i ended up you know deep in the woods. It was getting dark. It was the colder months. I don't remember navy's october november. But it's getting getting chilly. And i had just a little code on a black coat. Black gloves black pants. Sign around my neck that said sign lynn. Or whatever it said. And i was completely lost in the woods and You know. I tried a house and almost got attacked by the dog which was scary but you know the woman answered the door and she was like kinda like nervous. I'd be nervous. Someone wearing what. I was wearing in the middle of the woods. And she's like i try my neighbor. I don't know that place. Because i was like. Where's this retreat center on. So i went to the other house. nobody answered. there was the big dog. That house to Luckily i didn't have to meet that one so i went back and then i guess the teenage daughter had answered the door. And i'm like listen. I'm back. I'm very lost. Can you please help me. So she said well you know. Do you have the phone number. And i said no. This is my first time here so she went up. Got the phone number. She let me use the phone. I called but at that time everyone was in pooja which is like their prayer time or their meditation prayer time so nobody answered the phone at the retreat center. Like oh my god. What am i gonna do. And then the woman just said why. Don't you just call the police so we had to call the police. They showed up to officers in one car. They were questioning me. They wanted my license. Which i didn't have. And they put me in the back. The back seat of the car and eventually drove me back. Showed them my license. And now my way and luckily ever was still improve so nobody saw the police car and and dropped me off but you know it really taught me a valuable lesson. You know. like don't like i take it seriously and and you know have your discipline and take it seriously but with a light heart. I think that was the teaching for me was like listen. You don't need a push this hard. There's no special experience you need to have. it's really about. How are you relating to this experience right now. You know no matter. How many retreats i went on how blissed out i got. You know i still came back to my ordinary life. That had confusion that had difficulty that had frustrating people in situations. So it's like no matter. How high on the mountain top you go. You still have to come back down to the village and live your ordinary life. you know. that's where most of the times going to be spent. And i'm not downplaying retreat because you got a new perspective to live that ordinary life Maybe a little more depth but at the end of the day is still the same. You still the same neurotic person. You know that you you were when you left. Yeah yeah speaking of when life doesn't go right. I loved your analogy about raking. Leaves and your raking in the wind was blowing the leaves all over the place. Tell mindful drive about your analogy to mind meditation to Raking leaves right so that was a my grandfather was alive. We were helping him. Rake the leaves and we'd rake pile and then the the wind would blow and more would just fall and it's in the same spot and you know so. We kept rigging and raking in raking joyfully. And it was really for me like you know every day we have a new day new moment and it's not about getting rid of the leaves forever right. The leaves will come and go and and for me. The leaves meant like minor. Rossi's mike conditioned reactivity like that all that stuff is going to rise. My personality is still going to be my personality. You know they always say. The personality doesn't get enlightened. And i find that to be true. I still have generally the same personality type that i did thirteen years ago. I mean i have a lot more freedom. Now i definitely live for very different things and very different values. And i have freed myself from a lot of neurotic patterns that no longer. Serve me but i still in the same kind of goofy kinda guy and Still have the same types of things. And i feel like you know every day. Just gotta break those leaves in your mind. Didn't and you and your experience and you know make your little neat pile and maybe get the grasp exposed for a while and then you know some blow back with the leaves. Eventually the tree runs out a leave. So eventually your pile of leaves on the grass gets less and less and less But of course then the next year comes. That's always something i think the analogy is is partially just like a realistic view of this practice. Because for me. Personally i fell into such a like i dunno airy-fairy kinda happy ending type of thing you know as jack cornfield would say enlightened retirement or he calls it something like that You know but like his book After the ecstasy laundry right.

"The any AC national monument and preserve gets the fewest visitors of any national park, and it boasts no rangers. No trails and no waiting in line. All the more reason Christopher Solomon went out of his way to hike a few summers ago. Chris, welcome great to be here. Is this actually a national park or what's the technicality they're. Technically Rick any act check national. Monument and preserve is its name and it. It is not a national park, but it is the least visited unit of the four hundred and one properties in the national park system, so nobody goes there white. Why do they even bother thinking of it? As part of the system you, you'd think that the least visited might be something like the Martin Van Buren national birthplace right, but no It's Antioch Chat in two.

The National Monument, which is a gorgeous volcanic crater, so ease of access is not one of its selling points. Is it worth the trouble? Yeah, I was thinking about this on the drive over here and how to summarize it. I have had the good fortune to travel all over the world as a travel writer, I was with a photographer who shoots pictures all over. Over the world and beautiful places we agreed we'd never seen a place as unique as okay. How can you write in? Your article is just gorgeous about this that it was mind-bending. Lee Gorgeous is the desolation that's part of it, or what makes it better than just going to any national park, so maybe to convey what it's like I need to tell you just. Just a little bit about its geologic in human history, which is more interesting than it sounds about the time. The Egyptians were ruling the world. A seven thousand foot volcano blew its top with a with a force of ten thousand nuclear bombs ruined the bigger eruptions we we know of, and then the volcano collapsed on itself and created a crater that could swallow Manhattan. That crater filled with water, so it looked like crater lake national park, then that lake blew out in his biblical flood in over the next couple thousand years, this lost worlds was sort of created inside that crater, and it just went kind of unnoticed, except for the native peoples for thousands of years until nineteen thirty, when this man called the glacier priests arrived, and the Glacier priest was father, Bernard, how he's one of these Jesuit priests who was cut from the old cloth, swashbuckling sort of Jesuits, and he, he barnstorm all over the forty-ninth state, having these wild adventures by Bush plane. Plane by dog sled is write ups win the Saturday Evening Post and the National Geographic and in nineteen thirty, he wrote about visiting Antioch Check, and he described it as paradise found this this lost world where orchids bloomed in the volcanically warmed soil, and the rabbits were gigantic, and they came up and walked right up to his crew, which was a bunch of the Santa Clara football players, and and they felt bad killing them to eat them, but they did anyway. Did you read his writing the in preparation for your trip so I? Did I read about his writings about the great? Great Moon Crater of the earth called it, and then what happened is he wanted to go back the next year nineteen, thirty one and any act check blew up again, and he goes back and talks about it no longer in these Milton, s Kinda paradise found terms, but but in this dante-esque hellish terms describes himself peering into this blackened inferno, and then they go into the crater a couple months after it's blown up again, and they nearly die of poisonous gasses, and they're, and they're put their beans on a funeral and their beans Boileau, and they shove a thermometer in the ground. Ground thermometer explodes, and it's just this hellish wild landscape. That's the setting we go back eight years later. Just kinda see what it's like, and a lot of the soot has washed off from that nineteen thirty one explosion, but it has this kind of Sier Flinty beauty desolation sublime.

"Unlike the Democrats the whigs did not adopt a party platform in eighteen forty. In fact they went to great lengths to avoid controversial issues like slavery in the banks instead. Wigs leaned into the log cabin image and focused on appealing to the hearts of the masses. WIGS launched a series of partisan newspapers. I including a New York. Publication titled The log cabin as Harrison traveled the country making speeches and getting up support wigs handed. Outsider launched parades built log cabins to serve as Harrison campaign headquarters. The whigs also used their partisan papers and campaign machinery to cast Harrison as the hero of the common man and Van Buren as an elite aristocrat out of touch with the people but in September eighteen forty. The Democrats fought back in the press and Pro Democrat. Paper of the extra globe. Job Ran an article with a curious headline. Where does the money come from the extra globe charged that the whigs were buying influence to change the outcome of the election? The were no laws related to campaign finance eighteen forty and the notion of money influencing politics was very new still. The Democrats demanded answers the extra. The Globe wrote the log. Cabins would not have been erected the carousels and drunken revels would cease. The tippecanoe songs would lose their music if there was no money. Raised to pay for them. mm-hmm for Democrats this dark money to use a modern term was further proof. That Harrison was not the party of the common man. He was a tool of the wealthy elite And indeed in the eighteen forty contests money flowed into the Harrison campaign in unprecedented ways. Merchants and business people in the northeast gave Harrison's campaign thousands thousands of dollars one New York businessman all but paid for the log cabin newspaper in New York. Another business owner in Massachusetts gave the Harrison campaign. Five thousand dollars over one hundred thousand in today's money but perhaps the most generous giver was Nicholas. biddle the last president of the Second Bank of the United States In late September eighteen forty forty thousand New York wigs merchants business professionals and traders gathered at the Corner Wall Street and William Street for massive political rally. Their main concern was a plan that had been passed by the democratic controlled Congress in July of eighteen. Forty the plan. Push by Van Buren call for an independent national treasury a threat to biddle second bank and to the current financial system wig leaders addressed the crowd and attack Van Buren inaction in response to the panic of eighteen. Thirty seven in wake of the panic. Van Buren had been reluctant to get the federal government's involved. He believed the federal government. Government did not have constitutional authority to do so the whigs disagreed at the September rally. The whigs call for federal intervention. Defending the government's right to regulate the money supply. One Speaker was Massachusetts Senator Daniel Webster a prominent whig who like Harrison had made a strong showing in the election of eighteen. Thirty six webster spoke for nearly three hours. He demanded adjust stable. Financial System. Made up of paper money specie and Credit Webster Bello to the crowd what we need is currency which shall be equally acceptable in the Gulf of Mexico the Valley of the Mississippi on the Canada frontier on the Atlantic Ocean and in every every town village and hamlet of our extended land at the same time less than a block away New York Democrats held their political rally. The turnout was less impressive. Impressive but their message was big and bold. The rich and powerful wigs were mixing money with politics. They were trying to buy the presidential election and they were using government resources to do it just weeks before their rally in New York. The Pro Democrat. Extra Globe had attacked the wigs for abusing postal system writing the quantity entity of trash which has passed through the post office. Here under the frank of members of Congress is truly incredible the extra globe claim that in the summer of eighteen. Forty over the two hundred bushels of mail a day poured out of Washington. They went on eight tenths of this massive trash with which the males have grown during nearly eight months has has proceeded from the WHIG members of Congress. Law Allowed Congressman to send information to their constituents free of charge. The whigs took full advantage of this sending countless pro Harrison letters and pamphlets from their campaign headquarters in Washington City Hall whether it was corrupt or not. The Harrison campaign was organized sized while the Whig Congressman launched their mailing campaign from Washington. The party created a hierarchy of committees and subcommittees in nearly every state county city and district across the country the whigs created what was arguably the first voter database a comprehensive list of every eligible voter in every district. The machine was so finely the tuned that a newspaper article in September eighteen forty one democratic congressman commented that the whigs were planning to bring to the polls every man they can induce by argument argument. Or money blandishments or threats liquor or lies to vote the whig ticket in October of eighteen. Forty the extra globe double down with an article titled the Government For Sale The extra globe leveled serious charges of corruption. At the whigs money the article explained had paid for the cabins the parades the conventions the rallies and most importantly the people the erection of log cabins like the barracks of an army. Amy were to afford quarters for the vicious depraved debauched with liquor and stimulated with lying and corrupted with money with this corruption fund hundreds of agents have been employed and paid large sums to traverse the country to distribute pamphlets and speeches filled with the most scandalous falsehoods according to the Democrats the whigs were doling out millions of dollars. And they weren't doing it. Out of the goodness of their hearts as the extra globe explained it is the hope of making more money that induces the gambling merchants and capitalists to bleed so freely to supply this corruption fund. They consider it a profitable investment. But the truth is both parties were guilty of using money and the government to influence the outcome of the election historian Ronald Shaffer points out in his book. The carnival campaign. That van Buren had plenty of federal help to according to Schafer. The Pro van Buren Washington Globe. Newspaper had an annual government contract worth sixty thousand dollars a year the equivalent of nearly one point four a million in today's money and the improper use of campaign. Money wasn't the only dirty trick you lies by both political parties. Eighteen forty as the extra globe wrote in October. Over of that year it is by the Agency of money that they charter steamboats and pay the expenses of transporting the vagabonds from state to state to give fraudulent and illegal votes. It was in the election of eighteen. Forty four perhaps the first time in American history that voter fraud and voter suppression became a central issue in the political campaign. Both parties played apart and both sides accused the other of being the worst offender on election day in Illinois when a democratic operative stood at the polls to intimidate wig voters. One presidential elector rising political star took matters into his own hands disgusted with dirty tricks. Abraham Lincoln old up his sleeves they literally ran to the polls.

"The panic of eighteen thirty seven was caused caused by a myriad of factors including British banking policies that traveled across the pond. But the WHIG party lay the blame at the feet of Andrew Jackson in his bank. War Jackson had vetoed the re-charter Second Bank of the United States. Favoring decentralized state banks or Jackson's pet banks as his enemies called them Jackson accidents decision to ultimately withdraw federal deposits from the Second Bank Force the bank to call in its notes. The result was catastrophic to the economy shrinking credit it dwindling money supply and a wave of bankruptcies and unemployment the panic of eighteen thirty seven and the ensuing economic depression played. Martin Van Buren first term in keeping with the presidential standards of the day. Van Buren was reluctant to use federal funds to save the economy. The decision cost him his popularity and earned earned him the nickname Martin van ruin for perhaps the first time in US history. The American people directly blamed a sitting president for financial woes in the prior elections of eighteen. Twenty eight and eighteen thirty. Two Democrats elected Andrew Jackson by defining him as a war hero and a true champion of the common man in eighteen. Thirty six Martin. Van Buren was elected on the strength of Jackson's legacy but in the election of eighteen forty the opposition whigs would take a page out of the Democratic Attic playbook and run a war hero candidate of their own to unseat Van Buren General William Henry Harrison the hero of the battle of tippecanoe. This is episode fourteen eighteen forty old tip. It's January eighteen. I'm forty at a mansion on the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. The banks of the river covered in snow. The water nearly frozen over. Richard Smith Elliott a young newspaper man knocks on the large wooden door to the mansion. Thomas Elder Harrisburg banker and the former attorney general of Pennsylvania. Answers the the door Mr Elliot. Thank you for coming will thank you for having me Mr elder come in where it's warm elder leads Elliot through a maze of rooms and hallways. He's back to his private office. May I offer you a drink. Oh yes please have a seat by the fire warm. Your hands elder pours two glasses of wine and joins this guest. He gets down to the business at hand. I assume you've seen this elder hands Elliott a copy of a newspaper from a few weeks back the December eleventh edition of the Baltimore Republican and Anti Whig newspaper the article attack the whigs presumptive presidential candidate. General William Henry Harrison Republican painted Harrison as old weak feeble and financially desperate. Elliot takes the paper in his hands and reads the words. Give Harrison a barrel of hard cider and settle a pension in of two thousand a year on him and take my word for it. He will sit the remainder of his days in his log cabin. Yes the attacking the president unrelenting Mr Alien The New York Herald called autumn. An old woman I know and the New York Evening Post called him a pauper. They're trying to tear down our war. Hero Minister Elia. No No. They're not trying they're succeeding. Perhaps Mr Elliot. Instead of refuting these insults we should own them. And what exactly are you suggesting. Elder Leans in close with a gleam in his eye. I'm suggesting we build one Elliott's face falls into confusion. A log cabin yes. Most of the voters today their parents and grandparents lived in log cabins. This article is an insult to them. What does paint the Democrats as the party of the elite and Harrison the candidate of the common man it worked for Andrew Jackson perhaps we could use their strategy against them indeed? Let's bring the campaign down to the people. Let us stoop to conquer anger in January of eighteen forty Richard Elliot and Thomas Elder created. What might be called the first campaign? Pain logo in American history in their meeting. Elder drew a rough sketch a log cabin complete with chimney stacks pile of wood and a raccoon skin hanging from the facade and the following day Elliott hired an artist's work up a final version and Atta meeting of Pennsylvania wigs in Harrisburg on January twentieth Elliott presented the image with the accompanying opening slogan democracy reform and one presidential term in response to the image. The crowd of wigs erupted into what one newspaper called the hussars of the multitude. The image caught on like wildfire spreading to every corner of the country and within a matter of weeks William Henry Harrison. The hero of the battle of tippecanoe canoe had a new identity.

Petitions from New Hampshire New York Michigan and Virginia. But there's one piece of paper in particular that he plans to use as a weapon. Gentlemen I have in my possession of paper from twenty the person's declaring themselves to be slaves upon which I wished to have the decision of the speaker. I wished to know whether the speaker will consider this paper as coming under the rule of the house. Adams's pressing the issue of the GAG. Rule deliberately baiting his southern counterparts into a fight the speaker replies. The gentleman gentleman has the paper in his hands. He is the best judge of the matter. If the gentleman will send the paper to chair the chair will make a determination as you wish. Mr Speaker in Alabama Congressman Job lawler leaps to his feet objection. Mr Speaker. This document must not go to the table under the rules of the House. lawler is joined By a throng of southern Congressmen. Who condemned Misr Adams? Virginia Congressman William Berkeley Lewis Presses for punitive action. Mr Speaker. The House should immediately punish the member. I I second. The motion Adams rises one last time to his defense Mr Speaker. It is my duty to remains silent while these resolutions charging me with high crimes are pending but as the gentlemen of this House have gone on consuming time in the house in such a manner. I also feel a duty you to show these resolutions for what they are erroneous. I simply Rosen my place and stated that I had in my possession in a letter from twenty persons representing themselves to be slaves. I did not state. What the object of the paper was Adams knows the papers object? It calls for the ratification of slavery but in a clever move he plays dumb. The gentleman from Alabama might find that the object of the petition is precisely what he has been so strenuously uneasily contending for so Mr Speaker all petitions should be received whether they come from the wealthiest individuals in the land or the poorest among us. I hope Mr Speaker that no distinction will be made in petitions in a free government. Blessed we make ourselves fit instruments for the abuse of a desk in the late eighteen thirties. John Quincy Adams repeatedly challenged the gag all in one speech. He stated you begin with suppressing the right of petition. You must next suppress the right of speech in the house. What will be the consequence? Then you suppress press the right of petition you suppress the freedom of speech the freedom of the press and the freedom of religion for in the minds of many. This is a religious question in which they act under what they believed to be a sense of duty to their God on the same day that Adams made his stand John C.. Calhoun offered a counter argument. On the floor of the Senate and less anti slavery petitions be speedily stopped it will spread to brings the two great sections of the Union into deadly conflict. Calhoun argument was was a portend of one was to come on February eighth. Eighteen thirty seven. Congress counted the electoral votes van. Van Buren won by a slim margin. Fifty point eight percent of the popular vote. He won fifteen states mainly in the north he took Pennsylvania but narrowly van Buren beat Harrison by less than five thousand of the nearly one hundred eighty thousand votes cast. In the past two elections. President Jackson had made a strong wrong showing in the South Van Buren didn't fare nearly as well. They're van Buren ran nearly even with Hugh Lawson white even losing Jackson's home state of Tennessee. A sobering fact that showed that the Democratic Party was no longer fully the party of Andrew Jackson. It was thought that the whigs had hoped to throw the eighteen thirty six contests to the house. US were unite around a single candidate and beat Van Buren. Their strategy failed but Congress still had a part to play in the election of eighteen. Thirty six Democrats in in Virginia refused to vote for Van Buren running mate in large part. Because of Johnson's scandalous relationship to Julia Chinn as a result he fell one vote short sort of an electoral majority so for the first and only time in American history.

They made an impressive showing especially in the south. That's in large part. Due to the issue of slavery in the eighteen thirties anti slavery sentiment was growing and in response.

"It might be said that the so called wigs strategy in eighteen thirty six was Nada strategy at all but rather a result of disorganized anti-jackson movement and lack national definition wigs fell on both sides of controversial political questions was like the second bank tariffs and internal improvements. The only true unifying principle was opposition to King Andrew. The first but whether or not there was a method it behind the whig strategy to put forward multiple regional candidates white webster and Harrison were taken seriously by the pro Jackson. Pro Van Buren Democrats in in July of eighteen. Thirty six. The Democratic National Convention released a statement. Decrying the whigs strategy to throw the election to the house. The statement urged Democrats not to secede seed from the ranks of their party and throw themselves into the arms of their political enemies of the three whig candidates white. A true southern candidate was the most problematic automatic in the statement. Democrats attacked whites candidacy saying its only purpose was to divide the Party and play into the whig strategy. Why it was problematic for another another reason to unlike van Buren his pro slavery views? Were not in question so in mid eighteen thirty. Six Martin Van Buren again made his case to the south off. He wrote multiple letters to prominent southern Democrats reassuring them that he was a friend to Virginia principles. But while Van Buren lobbied for the South support four he faced a barrage of attacks. The press they're primarily from the Telegraph van Buren responded by publishing a letter where he laid out his political views but in the long long diatribe which took up multiple columns. There was one subject that was conspicuously absent. Slavery for Van Buren privately defending slavery to the South South. One thing but publicly advocating for the practice was another and Van Buren. Silence cost him in August. Eighteen thirty six. The Telegraph Raked van Cambio over the coals. Calling him a coward too afraid to take a real position on slavery they wrote. The van Buren like a cunning man. If not a wise one. He chose silence as the best exposition of his opinions. The article also painted Van Buren as a puppet for Jackson's agenda. Mr Van Buren might have comprised the substance of his letter in a much smaller compass. We can put the whole motto in a sense I say Ditto. To General Jackson. The Telegraph also cast van Buren as an elite no better than a British lord and the attacks kept coming all the way through the election which was held from November third to December seventh eighteen. Thirty six and while the the country waited to learn the results the debate over slavery raged on in the eighteen thirties. Congress was flooded with anti slavery petitions from citizens they received achieved one hundred thirty thousand in eighteen thirty six and eighteen three seven alone in response. The Democratic controlled House had passed the first of many gag rules resolutions resolutions that postponed action on anti slavery. Petitions and silenced debate on the issue but in the winter of eighteen thirty seven two days before the electoral votes were counted. One Week Congressman. PRESI issue John Quincy Adams the only president to return to the House of Representatives after serving in the White House in early early February eighteen.

Well not everyone. Grundy gestures across the room to a long face. Guest Jackson's Vice President John C Calhoun of South Carolina. Oh excuse me Mr Grungy. I wasn't expecting the vice president. Shake his hand and invite him to sit with me. Anyone who is anyone in Washington will be here tonight so it's important in the interests of Party unity that we'd be seen as friends well. Don't Spoil Your Fun. Van Buren Crosses. This is the room and greets calhoun with a smile and a friendly embrace Mr vice-president. I'm certainly glad you're here. Calhoun is curtain has response. Thank you the invitation. Van Buren immediately clocks. Calhoun skull demeanor and he knows precisely why Calhoun standoffish. President Jackson and his vice vice president are at odds over. Myriad of issues and rumors abound the Jackson will replace Calhoun as vice president in the upcoming election of eighteen thirty. Two there are even even rumors he plans to replace. Calhoun with Martin. Van Buren as Calhoun scowls. Van Buren lays on the charm. I'LL ADMIT MR vice president. I'm surprised to find you here. I just spared when you did not respond to my invitation. My house has been poorly again. Calhoun is Kurt and cold and barren can see the conversation is going. I'm nowhere still.

Mrs Mrs Grundy directly between himself and Martin Van Buren and Buren notices the slight soda. Senator Grundy who tries to ease the tension. Please Vice President Calhoun. Who Don't let my wife come between you? Mr Van Buren without missing a beat. Calhoun cuts is at Van Buren and responds. Believe me senator. There's nothing thing that will bring us together. Calhoun message at Van Buren. Dinner Party. In January of eighteen. Thirty one was clear. Calhoun was no longer a friend to Andrew Jackson or his secretary of State. The rift between them only widened. When Jackson did drop Calhoun and made van Buren his running mate in the eighteen thirty to contest in the years after the thirty two election? The rift grew wider. Still throughout his presidency Jackson. Push for for controversial tariffs meant to bolster American industry in response though John C.. Calhoun and his home. State of South Carolina declared Jackson's tariffs unconstitutional constitutional and refuse to enforce them Pro Jackson. Democrats in Congress answered South Carolina with the Force Bill. A law giving Jackson Authority to use military force against South Carolina or other states to compel cooperation. Ultimately a compromise was struck and disaster was avoided but the nullification Haitian crisis as it would come to be called poured fuel on the fire of anti-jackson sentiment especially in the south sensing growing discontent in the eighteen. Thirty six contest John C.. Calhoun would try to wrest control of the Democratic Party from the grip of Andrew Jackson and his heir apparent. Martin van Buren to steal his party's nomination. Calhoun would weaponize one of the most controversial political issues of eighteen theories America slavery Slavery had been a divisive issue from the very beginning of American democracy but had largely been tabled in the name of compromise during the constitutional convention. Attention the framers agreed to protect slavery in order to secure the south support for the constitution. The three fifths compromise which allowed slave states to count three fifths so their slave population toward congressional representation had helped achieve representational bounce between north and south but he was a painful and difficult process. Founding Father John Dickinson had said acting before the world. What will be said of this? New principle of founding a right to govern Freeman on power derived from slaves the omitting getting of the word would be regarded as an endeavor to conceal a principle of which we are ashamed that silent shame hung over the nation from its inception until till the spring of eighteen. Twenty when the founder sin made its way into the heart of American politics after months of heated debate over slavery's expansion in the West Congress Congress had passed the Missouri compromise a law prohibiting slavery in New Territories north of the thirty six degrees thirty second parallel. The Missouri compromise had had satisfied though almost no one for pro slavery advocates. The compromise had gone too far for Anti Slavery Americans. It had not gone far enough but once again Dan compromise had forestalled an evitable clash between the regions that would ultimately result in civil war. The other political debates of the eighteen thirties over issues issues like tariffs internal improvements in the Second Bank of the United States. Were on their surface debates over the government's proper role in economic development but to the south these issues issues were part and parcel of the question of slavery as one Virginia Congressman explained if Congress could interfere in the economic activity of the individual states. They may emancipate every slave in the country in the election of eighteen. Twenty eight almost. Every slave state had voted for Andrew Jackson in large part. Thanks to the efforts of Martin and Van Buren Unite. The North and south behind Jackson's candidacy in eighteen thirty two Jackson had performed nearly as well but van Buren knew that without southern support art. He's election in eighteen. Thirty six would be impossible and so in the upcoming contest to garner southern support van buren would have to defend his record on slavery he would have to prove himself a friend to the peculiar institution and a worthy candidate to the people in the south in the summer of eighteen. Thirty four Van Buren wrote to Samuel Gwynn a prominent figure in Mississippi politics. Dear Sir I owe you an apology for not having sooner Aknowledge the receipt of your obliging letter. Twenty-sixth may my opinions on the subject of the power of Congress. Over slave property in the southern states are so well understood by my friends friends that I am surprised. At an attempt to impose upon the public respecting them should be hazard but van Buren record on slavery. Even if well known to his friends in Washington was problematic to the south he was also a northerner from New York which made him potentially untrustworthy in his letter to Gwynn van Buren sought to put southern concerns to rest. He wrote that. Slavery is in my judgment exclusively under the control of the state. Governments van Buren slatter. BYDESIGN was was published in. Virginia's Richmond enquirer and widely circulated all across the south but while Van Buren sought to defend his record on slavery. John C Calhoun Hoon sought to use that same record to his advantage. In the summer of eighteen thirty four Calhoun wrote to a colleague as it regards the next presidential election. I think it may be assumed zoomed that the state's Rights Party of the south will rally on no man that does not openly avow and support their doctrines. The south will soon be unanimous.

"In the election of eighteen thirty six there were two major political parties. The well established pro Jackson. Democrats and the newly formed wigs. The whigs were not yet a fully formed party with national dimension. They were born out of the ashes of the National Republican faction Shen a successor of source to the Federalist Party of John Adams and Alexander Hamilton. They were a hodgepodge of conflicting political ideas. Still The whigs agreed on one point. As president. Andrew Jackson had gone too far and expanding the powers of the presidency during his tenure in the White House. President Andrew Jackson went to war with the Second Bank of the United States. Blocking its re-charter Jackson's Bangor gave rise to strong resistance especially in the north and it became a rallying cry for the Whig Party Party. The whigs coalesced around a unifying principle congress. Not The president should control the reins of power but in the eighteen thirties. There was another anti anti-jackson movement on the rise the Anti masons arguably the first third party and US history initially the anti masons formed around a single issue destroying being the freemasons a secret society they deemed dangerous to democracy in eighteen. Thirty six three men who served as US presidents were known to be members.

He would uphold tradition. Step aside at the end of his second term but his legacy would be at issue in the eighteen thirty six contests Jackson's chosen successor. Martin van Buren would go to war with the anti the Anti Mason Wig coalition to defeat them. He would seek to bridge a growing divide in the Democratic Party over a controversial issue.

Bam Barron's weekly Dinner Party as always. It's a WHO's who of Washington among the guests are a slew of power players in Congress including Felix. Grundy WPRO Jackson Senator from Tennessee and his wife has van Buren hobnobs with crown from the pulse. Him Assign Mr Van der Shame about the weather center. The snow has been unbearable. I prefer to hold these weekly dinner Saturday evenings but sadly the the weather left me no choice but to reschedule. Still a delightful turnout yes. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. Well not everyone. Grundy gestures across the room to a long face. Guest Jackson's Vice President John C Calhoun of South Carolina. Oh excuse me Mr Grungy. I wasn't expecting vice president. I'm a shake his hand and invite him to sit with me. Anyone who is anyone in Washington will be here tonight so it's important in the interests of Party unity that we'd be seen as friends well. Don't Spoil Your Fun. Van Buren crosses the room and Greece. Calhoun with a smile and a friendly embrace Mr Vice President. I'm certainly glad you're here. But Calhoun is curtain has response thank. Thank you for the invitation. Van Buren immediately clocks. Calhoun cold meter and he knows precisely why Calhoun standoffish. President Jackson accent and his vice president are at odds over a myriad of issues and rumors. Abounded Jackson will replace Calhoun as vice president in the upcoming election of eighteen thirty two. There are even rumors you plan to replace. Calhoun with Martin Van Buren as Calhoun scowls. Van Buren lays on the charm. I'LL ADMIT MR vice president. I'm surprised is to find you here. I despaired when did not respond to my invitation. My house has been poorly again. Calhoun is Kurt and cold and barren can see the conversation. Sation is going nowhere still extending olive branch. Will you sit with me and Senator Grundy at dinner Mr Calhoun. Calhoun doesn't answer. If you do me the honor of escorting Senator Grundy's wife to the ballroom and saving seats for all of us. I would be much obliged after a moment of hesitation calvin replies it would be my pleasure as soon goes in search of Mrs Grundy. Her husband's saddles up. Next van Buren. Did He Spoil Your Fun. No I asked him to dine with. Toss into escort your wife to dinner. And how did he reply. We agreed the vice president is going to behave himself or or so. It seems Van Buren in an Senator Grundy watches. Calhoun takes Mrs Grundy by the arm ness courts her into the dining room. He saves seats for all of them. But then in a deliberate snub he places. Mrs Grundy directly between himself and Martin Van Buren and Buren notices the slight soda. Senator Grandy who tries to ease the tension. Please vice vice president. Calhoun don't let my wife come between you. and Mr Van Buren without missing a beat. Calhoun cuts his eyes. Van Buren and responds. Believe me senator. There's nothing that will bring us together. Calhoun message at Van Buren. Dinner Party. In January. Eighteen thirty one was clear. Calhoun was no longer a friend to Andrew Jackson or his secretary of State. The rift between them only widened. When Jackson did drop Calhoun L.? Hoon and made van Buren his running mate in the eighteen thirty two contests in the years after the thirty two election. The rift grew wider. Still throughout his presidency Jackson. Push for controversial tariffs meant to bolster American industry in response though John C.. Calhoun and his home. State of South Carolina declared Jackson's tariffs unconstitutional and refused to enforce them. Projects and Democrats in Congress answered South Carolina with the Force Bill. A law giving Jackson Authority authority to use military force against South Carolina or other states to compel cooperation. Ultimately a compromise was struck and disaster was avoided but with the nullification crisis as it would come to be called poured fuel on the fire of anti-jackson sentiment especially in the south sensing growing discontent in the eighteen thirty six contests John C.. Calhoun would try to wrest control of the Democratic Party from the grip of Andrew Jackson and his heir apparent. Martin Van Buren to steal steal his party's nomination Calhoun weaponize one of the most controversial political issues of eighteen thirty s America slavery Slavery had been a divisive issue from the very beginning of American democracy but had largely been tabled in the name of compromise during the constitutional constitutional convention. The framers agreed to protect slavery in order to secure the south support for the constitution. The three fifths compromise which allowed slave states to count three fifths of their slave population toward congressional representation had helped achieve representational balance between north and south but he was a painful and difficult process. Founding Father John Dickinson had said acting before the world. What will be said of this? New principle of founding right to govern Freeman on a power derived from slaves the omitting of the word would be regarded as an endeavour to conceal a principle of which we are ashamed that silence shame hung over the nation from its inception Asian until the spring of eighteen twenty when the founders sin made its way into the heart of American politics after months of heated debate over slavery's expansion in the West Congress had passed the Missouri compromise a law prohibiting slavery in New Territories North of the thirty six degree thirty second parallel the Missouri. Sorry compromise had satisfied though almost no one for pro slavery advocates. The compromise had gone too far for Anti Slavery Americans. It had not gone far enough but once again compromise had forestalled an inevitable clash between the regions that would ultimately result in civil war. The other political debates at the eighteen thirties over issues like tariffs internal improvements in the Second Bank of the United States. Were on their surface debates over the government's proper role in economic development but to the south south these issues were part and parcel of the question of slavery as one Virginia Congressman explained if Congress could interfere in the economic activity of the Individual States. They may emancipate every slave in the country in the election of eighteen. Twenty eight almost. Every slave state had voted for Andrew Jackson in large part. Thanks to the efforts of Martin Van Buren Unite. The North and south behind Jackson's candidacy in eighteen thirty two Jackson had performed nearly as well but van Buren knew that without southern support. He's election in eighteen. Thirty six would be impossible and so in the upcoming contest to garner southern support Van Buren would have to defend his record. Turn on slavery he would have to prove himself.

Dear Sir I uh-huh Yoon apology for not having soon acknowledged receipt of your obliging letter of twenty-sixth may my opinions on the subject of the power of Congress over slave property in the southern states. It's are so well understood by my friends that I am surprised. At an attempt to impose upon the public respecting them should be hazarded but van Buren record on slavery. Even even if well known to his friends in Washington was problematic to the south he was also a northerner from New York which made him potentially untrustworthy in his letter. Letter to Gwynn van Buren sought to put southern concerns to rest. He wrote that. Slavery is in my judgment exclusively under the control of the state governments. Fabulous letter by design was published in. Virginia's Richmond enquirer and widely circulated all across the south but while Van Buren sought to defend his record on slavery. John C Calhoun sought to use that same record to his advantage. In the summer of eighteen. Thirty four Calhoun wrote to a colleague as it regards the next presidential essential election. I think it may be assumed that the state's Rights Party of the south will rally on no man that does not openly avow and support their doctrines the south will soon be unanimous animus. Nay Experience has shown that when united they cannot be defeated. Calhoun didn't overtly stated in the letter. But he had every intention of being the candidate unite. Unite them so Calhoun used the Anti Jackson newspaper. Washington's United States Telegraph as a weapon against puree he sought to portray van Buren as a a friend of the nascent anti slavery movement a week man devoid of principle who'd cave to the demands of anti slavery fanatics but while Van Buren and Calhoun fought.
