"I love with my band it kind of since we've traveled so much together we kind of have this energy of if we don't like it say it right now because if we if you don't we're gonna just be playing it to the point where it doesn't sound the same after this tour you know and i think that improvisation plays a large role with my raps. Even because i kind of like being on my toes while i'm rapping specifically i kind of like being able to be like somebody messed up. But that's okay like we just keep moving. nobody knows. Are you free. Styling and all are are you freestyle. Oh i'm a horrible freestyler. Actually let me let me. I don't really know go free salad. See the thing is. I'm not too used to doing it and i feel i could tell them one way to find out mckinley. I know right. It's like it's like drop the beat like surprise. Now it's like i. I would like to think that i could do it. I make up my jokes. When i'm walking around my house but it would probably be more like a bo burnham since than actual like wrapping situation. You know there's merit in that. But i don't know you. It's going to be more like standup than a hundred percent. Yeah it's it's easy to rhyme words but by far it or something. But if i'm trying to say something i don't know if i could actually be like any of those lyrics to you organically right now you know. I think it's exciting. And i think it's a ton of opportunity. We talked about some of the earlier hip hop jazz. That was coming out in in the nineties Best my knowledge a lot of it was really just like oh yeah. Let's like sample sample began. Doc or something you know definitely versus like let's play with a live band in this opens up kind potential home new world when it come. Sue me music in boarding studio definitely definitely. And i think it's given me sort of a language that a lot of other rappers don't really have because of access you know. I think being able to work with this band on and off record has allowed me to know how people communicate and has allowed me patients when communicating with people. You know so. I definitely i definitely hope. It opens up a new avenue vulnerability for rappers approach music. There was notorious last year. And obviously there's there's no twenty from for most of this year. what does that mean for. Somebody who not only has an alum coming out but somebody who when he does tour with the band. I think that my album kind of last the test of time. I think i'm confident in that. In that also comes from me sitting with for so long that even if several years from now on shows come out whenever shows are happening again. People still have the same enthusiasm with trying to hear these songs. Live transpose wives. There's no specific tour plan right now. Now not really. I should probably think about that soon. I mean shows coming. It's like so weird because like shows are coming back in the worst thing about show's coming back. Is that so many big names are like venues down. Even if they don't happen they still have that venue locked in. It's like honestly the majority of venues are locked down until january february which is so weird. Think because we all know a music's actually coming back but also you can't really bring it back if you wanted to if you don't have that sort of support so that we're middle spot where it's like. I think i'll do pretty well. Shows come back but for right now. I have no idea what's going on and i'm okay with that..

Well there is good reason to be confused even dignitaries got their numbers a bit muddled today with one official at first saying that one hundred and ten thousand appointments had already been booked and then leader or clarification from the city's public health commissioner saying no as of this point about fifty thousand reservations made and later in the day. Dr allison arwady really did seem to give a nod to that confusion. And i know there's been a lot of Questions about the united center.

Your screen is actually from a preview yesterday afternoon now as for that confusion that stems from a day prior sunday when accessed to appointments suddenly got switched at first anyone age sixty five or older from anywhere in illinois could sign up there was also a huge rush during a brief window with seven hundred fifty four appointments per minute booked during a window that let in younger individuals with certain co morbidity things like cancer or pulmonary disease officials say that early data from that showed that less than forty percent of those who got appointments were kogyo residents already called that unacceptable defeating the entire purpose of fema deciding to put a mask backs initiation clinic here.

There is really no way to make an appointment here. Temporarily access cut off. It is set to reopen later this week. In the meanwhile local and state officials say that they're going to try to work to fill those appointments behind the scenes with an aim of sixty percent of reservations going to chicago residents thirty percent to residents of suburban cook and then ten percent for those who live throughout the rest of illinois this city in particular targeting folks from vulnerable communities including those near the united center humble park for example but also a handful of other zip codes that includes mckinley park chatham roseland south shore and then in cases you're going to have chunks of appointments booked and set aside for community groups to help get the word out. We didn't really get a ton of specifics from officials on that now or what. He says that this focus on equity isn't just the right thing to do. She says it's the way to nip cove in the good also. The thing that gets our city past covid making sure more people are vaccinated in the heaviest hit zip. Codes is how we actually decrease our case rate how we decrease the risk variants. And how we're able to reopen the city and have lower risks to that end. she says. The city is making progress in decreasing case. It's particularly in latin next chicagoans ends where we now are seeing case rates for covid of latin x chicago that are not higher than Than you would expect them to be based on population where our case rates are really looking like the city as far as race ethnicity goes

9 top New York health officials resign as Gov. Andrew Cuomo scorns COVID-19 advice from experts
"York has been through hell, but the finish line is in sight. New York's governor, Andrew Cuomo, has arguably been one of the most visible politicians during the pandemic. The national media praised his measured tone during his daily press briefings back in the spring when New York City was the epicenter of the virus and New Yorkers agreed Polling in July showed that 72% of them approved of how the governor had responded to the crisis. For many Cuomo's apparent reliance on evidence and facts to guide his decisions was a relief from President Trump's daily Lies and misinformation about the virus. Here's Governor Cuomo talking to NBC News back in March. Don't operate on what I hope what I would like to see you What My expectation is I operate on the data on the numbers and on the science. Recent reporting from The New York Times, however, shows some cracks in that picture. According to the time since the summer, nine senior New York State Health Department officials have left their positions for being quote. Sidelined and disrespected by Governor Cuomo by not listening to their advice. Some believe the governor has potentially hindered the state's ability to stop the spread of the virus successfully roll out the vaccine. Here's what Governor Cuomo had to say during a recent press briefing. When I say experts in your quotes it sounds like I'm saying, I don't really trust the experts. Because I don't Because I don't Jesse McKinley is the Albany bureau chief for The New York Times. Jesse Thanks for joining us. Absolutely. So, What happened? I mean, why is Governor Cuomo shifting from someone who said he trusted the experts to someone who says he doesn't? Well, I think that was a pretty shocking remark. I think a lot of draws dropped not only in the room, but probably people listening nationwide and across the state. The point I think the governor was trying to make, although you might have been him handed about it was that he did not trust you know federal experts and people who Had given him bad advice in the past. Now, keep in mind. This has been a steady refrain of the governor that he feels like the feds let him down that the virus was coming when they didn't expect it. But the understood the thing that underscores this was our reporting in the paper on Monday, which basically showed that a lot of these so called experts that he has sustained for are in fact leading his department of Health. And leaving that department little bit in the lurch at a time in which the pandemic is so raging here in New York, you found in fact, in your reporting that nine senior New York State Health Department officials have left the department since the summer. Is this tension that you're describing between Governor Cuomo and essentially state public health officials? Really? What drove that? I think it's an undercurrent. Almost all of those nine leaving, you know, keep in mind the governor of common long before he became kind of the pandemic Slayer that he was known last spring and summer. Was known for a very heavy handed approach to state government and that included the state agencies like the Department of Health are under his under his, You know, Leadership s. Oh, he's always been known as a tough boss. But I think the intensity of the pandemic I think that the fact that he and a very small coterie of aides were dictating policy, often without the Department of Health, knowing what was coming Lead to enormous tension and also dispirited people in the Department of Health. You know, some of the sources we spoke to spoke of all time low morale inside at the Department of Health. You made the point that often times in situations like this, where you're facing a huge crisis, People rise the challenge, and they feel like their their expertise and their skill sets are are valued. And in many cases the governor made these people feel like they were not valued in and kind of dunderheads. You know, at a time in which he alone knew the best way forward. I want to get into the governor's decision to work with private hospitals in just a moment. But before that has the departure of these nine public health officials had any effect on the actual rollout of the vaccine distribution, or, you know efforts to control the spread of the virus. It's difficult to say at this point, but but what is incontrovertible is is that the governor instituted a different plan than the one that was on the books now. Now keep in mind, the Department of Health as well as local departments of health. Do Max vaccinations They have done these. They have plans on the books. They you know. In 2000 and nine they handled H one n one. There have been past outbreaks. There have been certainly public health vaccinations for everything from measles toe. Other childhood illnesses like this is something that local health departments know how to do and let they have plans to do. And in the case of this pandemic, the governor decided that they would do a different plan, often without informing the local health departments or even his own state Department of Health. That he had a different idea how to do this, and that leads to what you were talking about in using you know, large hospital systems is kind of the primary, you know point of contact for vaccinations rather than leaving it up Tol, local health departments or other authorities.

"mckinley" Discussed on The Falcoholic
"Chance because if we don't get it right this time where america is headed is someplace. I don't think anybody wants to go. How do we make our last best. Chance count listen to who we are a podcast by ben and jerry's produced by box creative now streaming wherever you your podcasts evan. Thinking about this now in the context of again. I think maybe the biggest criticism of thomas dmitrov his time. As general manager of the falcons. They never fixed the pass rush. You know the one player. Maybe that They did pick that has helped somewhat has been great. Jared but other than that you know these these two guys going back to vic beasley in two thousand fifteen attack mckinley in two thousand seventeen in your mind as a fan. Are you ready to see this front office. Just move away from these players that ultimately were just sort of a symbol of the failure of the metro area. To fix the pass rush. Yeah i mean you look at. I mean just looking at who. They've drafted ever since you know. John abraham one of the best pass rushers. Some people would say the best pass. Rusher teams ever add Since he left in two thousand twelve. Everything's been failure. I mean vic beasley statistically has been the best pass rusher we've had since two thousand twelve i. it's just kinda sad If i describe in one word is just sad because there's no seems like there's no vision for the guys who they pick. I mean you can look if you ignore likely round picks and stuff like that you can look in the fourth round Let's see where's that they took Was it not mulela. Malachite goodman from clemson that was in two thousand thirteen amounts much in you. Just keep going down the charts in. It's you know we get to tack in vic. Obviously first round picks got more of a chip on their shoulder and stuff like that. But you know i wouldn't. I don't think anybody would call third tenure in atlanta success Yeah it's just sad overall I mean i'm kind of eric's mindset where like You know. I have no strong opinion on it. I understand the business side of it. You know what you call out your team online in. Also there were signs of the before You know i know. He kinda bounced around. The median had majority of the alchoholic staff blocked but he flirted with the whole like. Hey get me out of here thing. I think you mentioned the raiders in cowboys previously. So maybe maybe that those replaces as agent tries to get him to go to. I don't. I don't know kinda don't care at this point is just kinda sad to see You know wasted talent Because it has. I don't know if he realizes it but it is off pudding. It's hard to cheer for somebody who's just publicly you know. I don't know it's just kind of like childish. I mean mentioning Mentioning like they turned down a second round pick last year. I highly doubt. I mean it's possible i guess no. I highly doubt that when it had three and a half sacks and two team games jason but of the actually tweeted out and said that the the front office. The falcons denied that they ever had an opera for a second round pick last year and they were in trade talks for shipping off tack and he re tweeted jason but meaning type. Mckinley did saying that's false news. Go ask thomas dmitrov. So he doubled down which was insane. Yeah i don't buy in the least big. They gave up immune they they took on a second to get rid of some new right. So you mean it's gonna turn down the second for a guy as never healthy and doesn't produce that doesn't make sense. I mean from from a player standpoint and his position he's trying to get leverage over the team and it failed. You know easter discouraged about not getting a fifth year option But you know i look at. I compare it his numbers to great east to jarrett's from two thousand seventeen and grady has more quarterback hits and more sex since two thousand seventeen despite being double team literally a replay. Yelm so you tell me you know if he deserves a fifth frown option. He didn't deserve it but he felt like he did because he wants to be auditing. Wants to be paid for not doing anything on the downfield but it is what it is. He somebody else's property. I don't care. Indeed he is and that the age of twenty five tap. Mckinley is no longer with the atlanta falcons. As tomorrow on the tenth of november he will at least be waived and we'll see if anyone picks them up what just to clarify one thing where the cop picks are concerned. Because i've had some people ask me about this. i'll clarify. You're on the podcast. At the top picks would have come until two thousand twenty two and that is assuming that Had made it to free agency. The normal path without being cut that another team with assigned him before the There's a cutoff in april. So i would assume that the team with signed him and offered him a big contract In the same way that vic beasley got and. I don't think we can make that assumption. As eric has point out rightly so with the injuries he has continued to babble. This season it probably was going to greatly diminish his stock in the free agent market. So maybe best we were looking at a sixth. Maybe a fifth round pick but that may have been. And i think is worth tossing out there that you know prior to the draft. You know there was some rumblings about his overall attitude as a player right So and knowing that in seeing how his career ended in atlanta that possibly could turned off a couple of teams here near also. Because i mean assist You're you're talking about is facing Off season you know they. They see preach drafts. People say like. Hey this guy's got a poor attitude you know. He's he's not a lockdown guy. You see what happens in atlanta so this may just be the capper here. They may say all right. I don't want anything to do with him. Because he's gonna he doesn't get his way he's gonna pal and you wanna talk about you on social media. So let's just not deal with that. So yeah i like basically. What i'm saying is that i i think. He shot himself in the foot by trying to slam the team. To the past weeks he thought he was doing himselves injustice any nameless teams killing himself in my opinion but i think To close this out. Evan i think one of the things standing on my mind is remorse is at the point. As the interim head coach where he arguably wants to impress The falcons brass. He wants to impress arthur blank etc. he in arguably wants to impress Other teams around league under the very likely scenario that he doesn't stay with the falcons in twenty twenty one So do you think that he felt some level of pressure. To get of some toxicity. In the locker room was sort of being a sour player that has turned sour on the team in recent weeks. I mean technically the team is three and one they really could have been for no easily But we won't talk about that. But i mean why. Have this conduct cloud hanging over you know social media everybody's got it I don't know what the you know how much the players have discussed it and stuff like that behind the scenes. But how could you not you know. Have that effect you. You've got a player publicly calling out the team in like not even sub tweeting literally tagging the team in his tweets. Like he wanted to be known in. I'm kind of proud of remorse for kind of pulling the trigger on this one because up go ahead..
"mckinley" Discussed on The Falcoholic
"I am joined by two writers at the alchoholic. I use my co hosts on the post game podcast. When evan burchfield emma thanks for joining. Thanks for having me. And one of my favorite writers at the site regular on the colic. Live the one. That only eric robinson eric. Thanks for joining. Thank you. I appreciate it. Yeah the the news we're here cover is in the middle of the season. Right as the falcons are going into a bi week. The team has cut or waived is the more appropriate here. Two thousand seventeen first round draft pick tack mckinley. The team has decided to move on after his antics. From the past two weeks antics he was fined four by the team in which he whips to twitter publicly criticized the team for not trading him both last year and this year and then followed that up with some additional tweets to reinforce that So let's get into disc cut. I'll just ask the obvious question. I evan there you surprise No i think a move needed to happen. I think it's just kind of weird. How the situation went down where there was the rumor that he would be traded in an i think consensus thought once the trade deadline passed was okay. They didn't move him because they want a compact but now he's just released. Maybe eric knows more about it than i do. But i believe they just kind of walk out of this with nothing. That's correct eric. Are you surprised by the move No i'm not surprised by the move at all along not discouraged by the move. I'm not upset. I'm not questioning the move. You know it's i. It is what it is at this point. You know Whether or the team was able to receive Picked by waving improperly That esprit much up in the air. Because we're talking about comic. Probably fifth rounder at best and then there's the possibility that conflict even come into a twenty two. So we're really you know really bring up something kind of small four-team s corner have to do some considerable changes in the future anyway. I'm i'm just glad that he's gone. he yeah he hasn't been he hasn't fit the fit the building of being a first round draft twenty seventeen especially a guy that was taken before a tj water believe so Seventeen and a half sacks and four seasons in. I'm pretty sure he probably had the same amount of injuries in four seasons as well so Yeah i i'm i'm fine him being gone on he's he's no longer valuable to the roster along bag woodson team So i'm fine with the team winning the cutlass with him. Yeah in to that point back into does a seventeen. the falcons did trade up to get tap mckinley. They had the number thirty one pick and they traded that pick their third rounder and the seventh rounder with the seattle seahawks to move up and grab him and as you mentioned he was taken in front of. J. watt who in his time in league has been an all pro one of the years. He's been in the league. So that gives you an idea of the two different trajectories for these two players. Real quick i want to go through. What tack has done his time atlanta two thousand seventeen rookie year. Either playing sixteen games. He had six sacks. Ten quarterback hits two dozen eighteen arguably his best year with the falcons. His second year played in fifteen games. Had seven sacks. Fifteen quarterback hits Last year two thousand nineteen. He played in fourteen games as win. Think the injuries really started to begin kicking in He had just three and a half sacks so a massively disappointing season Thirteen qb hits. And of course this year he has played in just four games out of the mind. The falcons played with just the single solitary sack so clearly. This is not turned out the way. That falcons spans and the falcons team brass thought it would. And this is on the heels of the drafting of vic beasley who was obviously given the fifth year option. Something they did not do that. Mckinley but beasley play through five years in atlanta ultimately had one good season and nothing else to show for it and it was ultimately cut in not picked up by and the other teams. After the tennessee titans had their fill of him So as it stands right now. I believe the word is. The falcons are going to execute the move tomorrow. Which would mean teams will have until tomorrow afternoon to pick up his contract. And the way that's gonna work is when the flavor player is waived. There is a waiver order in place based on the records of the teams are currently playing so the teams with worst records will have the first right to claim him on waivers if they claim him they have to pick up the remaining Amount of money that he was owed in salary this year. So that could help the falcons out. And he's still relatively young. He's twenty five years old so you've got to think that one of these teams is going to consider picking him on waivers. he's not particularly expensive. Otherwise if he clears waivers than he is at that point. Free to sign with whatever team he wants in the falcons will be on the hook for the remainder of his contract through this season. So they will get no cap relief at all If he does not go through waivers so eric given what we know about him in the fact that you know he hasn't panned out but maybe some team may think they. They can do something with them. Do you think he'll get picked up on waivers. I think the possibility is there absolutely being the fact that he is only twenty five And you know he doesn't have a lot of wear on the on the tires but when it comes to him the thing is and and we all kind of have to go back to the trade deadline about you know. Everything started on social media last week about him in a team i wanted to trade him team turning down traits. You gotta keep in mind. This kid is injured. You know he's nursing grown injury now. He tried to come back from it for one game. This year of getting shelled again. So maybe there was a reason why that team didn't train them. Maybe they couldn't trade him. Because i don't know too many teams just going to say. Hey we'll give you a fifth rounder for a guy to hurt every year. And he's hurt now at the trade deadline Maybe teams were detained. Hey you gonna release. Beezer get them that way they i to me. It feels like that was the more likely outcome. Then what he tried to portray on twitter last week So yeah so. I think the team is probably gonna gonna you know. Take a shot at them There arts teams at the top of the order that needs pass rushing the justice when it come the line But you know you've got to keep in mind. Like i said he is hurt And teams who wanna pick up a salary for the remainder of the season. You're not really going to know a whole lot about him in twenty four hours you know. If with him being hurt came he come back healthy. You know how hurt really is there growing you know. Is it worth picking them up and taking on salary and he does play he only plays maybe two or three games of the year. As that's the thing so i it's a possibility but there's also a possibility he can be team in this time. Tomorrow is very much in for those who are curious. He has tack is set to make one point eight million this year so not a big salary. And the thing you know given that a team would be basically paying about one million four eight seven or eight games of productivity or lack of productivity. Maybe his better said that may not be a terrible price tag for four especially for a team that has some cap space and as you mentioned they may be looking at him Someone that they can use to evaluate for the future and it won't cost a draft pick. And i think this is the big thing if they pick him up on waivers as opposed to the trade deadline where they would have had to give up a draft pick. This seems like the more viable option. Now certainly. I don't think you could argue. The teams were sitting there waiting for him to have a meltdown on twitter. Enforce the seem to cut here but same. I didn't entirely by into what he stated on social media. Because you got you gotta look at the surrounding circumstances like i said you know. He came up publicly for those who don't know who were not on twitter and don't know what he said but he basically said that the team turned down draft picks during his right now line to keep them yet So again. I don't know how much since that actually makes because if i'm looking at it from the viewpoint of an opposing team why would i give you a force for this guy who's never healthy and he's hurt right now with injury that can linger for the rest of the year. So i can't really buy into what he said. I i honestly feel like that was that was smoke basically so and and the ad to piggyback off. What you're saying you're not. I don't know if teams you know teams were just saying. Hey they're probably gonna cut him in any way. Just let them you know. Just let them right. Yeah exactly.

The acid, it was said to have dissolved the body within twelve hours. Despite this gruesome act authorities weren't entirely sure. They'd successfully eradicated the Shawl Gosh problem. The government wanted to make sure that the assassin had acted alone. So they arrested Emma Goldman and held her in custody for a few weeks. But ultimately, there was no evidence that she had coordinated with Shaw Gosh and she was released in fact, no anarchists seemed to have any connection with Shaw Gosh some admitted that he approached them but insisted they turned him away. They said he was overeager and many believed he was a spy. In the end authorities had to settle on the fact that President Mckinley was killed by a lone wolf who only succeeded because.

Then in eighteen, ninety, three, the economy collapsed. Show Gosh glimpsed what he saw as a failed American dream something had to change. So he decided to do something about it. It wasn't hard for the court to make their judgment especially considering how many eyewitnesses had watched the young anarchist strike. Shawl Gosh was sentenced to death. He was then transported to the state prison in Auburn where he was placed under the care of Superintendent Collins when Collins finally reached the cell he looked curiously at the twenty eight-year-old dressed in his new gray outfit Shull Gosh didn't seem nervous. He appeared determined the assassin asked to make a statement in front of a large audience call INS denied the request. He had no intention of giving this killer, any more celebrity but if Shaw Gosh had anything to say he could say it here and now to collins.

NASA To Send A New Toilet To International Space Station

The Teddy Bear!
"Early in the year of Nineteen O one. The manager of the Bronx Zoo in New York got a very unusual letter. The typewritten note was dated January. Second Gentleman I have a small named Jonathan Edwards and we find we do not have the accommodations to keep him so I should like to present him to the Bronx Zoological Gardens. Can you send someone out here to tend to his shipment then written by hand next to this is a further question? I think it says or shall I ship him myself but it's hard to read the messy scribbled handwriting in any case the letter is signed yours. Truly t roosevelt. Now as you might have guessed that T- Roosevelt is Theodore Roosevelt. A man who would soon unexpectedly find himself as the president of the United States. But that probably wasn't the first thing that jumped out to William Hornets manager of the Bronx Zoo. His thoughts were probably something like bear a bear a pet bear in New York. Of course you don't have any accommodations to keep them. Who Does he's a bear and wait. Did you say his name is Jonathan Edwards? Were kind of name. Is that for a bear name. A bear poo or growly or berry made even snuggles. If he's got the right personality but Jonathan Edwards Kinda Weirdo. Oh right teddy. Roosevelt Theodore you see Theodore. Roosevelt had just finished his duty. As governor of New York State that term ended on December thirty first and on that upcoming March fourth he would be sworn in as vice president of the United States in the time between governing and vice president and it seems teddy him. The idol was trying to take care of some personal matters which included but were not limited to a live bear rather than ask the million questions that were surely. On the zookeepers. Mind William Hornets. Just said yes. It was Teddy Roosevelt after all right right but Hornets did ask where on earth the bear came from soon to be vice president. Roosevelt had already moved on to other matters because his reply was short. And Sweet. My dear Mr Hornets. The back came from West Virginia. Very Truly Theodore Roosevelt's. Let's not a lot of information from a man who could be pretty verbose that means he talked a lot and he also wrote a lot dude wrote thirty five books in his lifetime over one hundred and fifty thousand letters to people so you'd think he could have offered a bit more explanation as to what he was doing with a bear at his house a few months prior he did elaborate a bit more in one of those one hundred and fifty thousand letters that he wrote to a friend. He told his pal that some supporters in West Virginia had presented the bear to him as a gift. And well. You can't say no to a gift especially a Harry. One was sharp teeth honestly. A pet bear wasn't entirely off the Charts the Roosevelt while Jonathan Edwards. The bear would eventually go to live in the Bronx Zoo. It might not have felt that much different. From the Roosevelt home to the creature he would have been more than us to being surrounded by a mess of animals. And I'm not talking about the six Roosevelt kids running around the home. I'm talking about all of their pets. The list of Roosevelt family pets goes on and on there was a lizard named bill and a pig named MoD a badger named Josefa and a blue macaw named Eli Gail Barron. Sprinkle was a hen and Peter was of course a rabbit. There are also a whole bunch of Guinea pigs with names. That don't disappoint. They were called Admiral. Dewey Dr Johnson Bishop Tone Fighting Bob Evans and Father O'Grady. As if that weren't enough there was also a one. Legged Rooster Hyena a pony and my favorite a Green Garter. Snake named Emily Spinach. As you can see the Roosevelt's took their pets and their pet names quite seriously. Animal hijinks and Shenanigans were very common among the six Roosevelt kids once when brother. Archie was sick in bed. His siblings hatched a scheme to cheer him up. They lead their pony up the stairs to his room to surprise him which it certainly did but the pony was more excited to see his reflection in a bedroom mirror so much so that he would not leave and then there was the time that Quinton burst into his father's office at the time. Teddy Theodore Right. Sorry Theodore was in the middle of an important closed-door meeting with senators and other politicians closed doors. Don't always mean much to a kid with animals in his pockets and Quinton didn't think twice about interrupting the meeting. The men kindly obliged pause the meeting while the boy threw his arms around his beloved father who Shirley laughed proudly and started to shoot the boy away but Quinton had a surprise. The boy pulled four snakes out of his pocket and place them on the table in the middle of the room. Apparently these men did not have a similar menagerie of animals in their own households because these powerful yet easily frightened men jumped up like popcorn scrambled to the edge of the room. Faster than Greece geese it was surely a funny moment for the Roosevelt's so as we've said Jonathan Edwards would live his days in the Bronx Zoo but he wasn't the only fateful bear in Teddy's life. Okay he wasn't the only fateful bear in Theodore's life no there was another. Roosevelt was sworn in as vice president and March of nineteen o one and six months later in September. He was president of the United States. It wasn't supposed to happen that way. But President William McKinley was assassinated while attending the world's bear in Buffalo New York. Theodore Roosevelt took his place and made history in many ways. Theatre was an extremely energetic. Man Some say he had a photographic memory because he could do things like perfectly recite poems that he had read and not seen again for decades. He read books nearly every day. Some people saw him read two or three pages a minute. He was very proud of his speed reading skills but it wasn't just learning that he engaged in Roosevelt loved the outdoors. In fact as a president he set aside two hundred thirty million acres of land to protect and save so that Americans for many generations could enjoy these forests parks and Animal Sanctuaries Theodore love to spend time in nature himself. He loved to horseback ride and he was also an avid hunter in November of Nineteen. O Two just after his first full year as president. He made a hunting trip to Mississippi on invitation. From the governor of the state there were several other people in the party and before long the president was the only one who had not shot a bear. This was embarrassing for the governor. How could they leave? Teddy out right right right with the feodor so anyway. In an effort to guarantee success for the president's bear hunting trip the guides devised an unfortunate and unkind plan that involved tying a bear to a tree for Roosevelt to shoot when he discovered the creature in such a state. Roosevelt was disgusted and refuse to shoot. What could have been forgotten moment soon? Captured the American imagination and then gave birth to one of the most common items found in kids rooms. All around the world still today. A cartoonist was inspired by the story and sketched an image of Roosevelt refusing to shoot the bear the cartoon ran in the Washington Post which was a major newspaper in it immediately connected Roosevelt to bears in the minds of Americans probably most of whom never even realized that he had a pet bear in New York for a while. One American who saw this was a candy shop owner from Brooklyn New York named Morris Victim. It began with two soft cuddly stuffed toy bears that he and his wife Rose had made. He stuck those bears in the window of his candy shop and called them Teddy bears before long he spent all of his time making those and even started a toy company that would live on for decades. So whether you knew it or not. That teddy bear in your bedroom is named after a president who didn't even like being called Teddy.
"mckinley" Discussed on American Elections: Wicked Game
"Mckinley lead the country into the twentieth century. He was the first president to appear extensively on film and the first president to ride in the automobile at home. American goods were ordered by Cadillac. We're now finding new markets across the globe by the Spring of Nineteen O. One the warned the Philippines was over giving the United States a new doorway into Asian trade also in early nineteen o one. Mckinley began planning a canal to be built in either Nicaragua or Panama. To increase the United States economic enable foothold in the region the twentieth century promise to be appeared of innovation and prosperity but while most advanced and the growing economy many in the working class did not. Some Americans were growing tired of corruption. An unfair trade practices animosity was rising between Americans and the bursting immigrant population. Tensions were rising. It was only a matter of time before the tinderbox exploded. It's September six nineteen to one in Buffalo New York and the city is packed for the Pan American exposition the purpose of the fares to celebrate the spirit of economic friendship. Throughout the Americas. It's a festival of ingenuity and adventure. President Mckinley himself is in attendance. Yesterday was President's Day at the exposition where McKinley gave.

Great crowd has gathered for a chance to meet the president but one of the men in charge of security. Is it worried Mr President? I believe this crowd is to grave. We may not be able to keep them at bay. Nonsense I'm sure they will stay orderly. I don't want to deprive them of a chance to meet their president. Mckinley turns and smiles at the crowd begins pressing forward to shake hands with the head of the American Empire in front. A man leads his little girl after the president who offers her tiny hand. Well hello there little one. I hope you're enjoying the fair as they leave. The president's smiles and waves goodbye to the little girl. Next in line comes boyish featured man with bandaged.

Detective Jerry keeps a close eye on the Italian menacing look which Gary regarded with suspicion Italian aggressively. Shake the president's hand. That's quite a grip. You have there sir. Hans like these only come from hard work. And that's what makes this country. Great Italian grips the president's hand so long that detective geary must step forward to break the class. All right. That's enough. Let's move along. Gary guides the Italian pass to allow the next man the one with the innocent face and bandaged hand a chance to meet the president. Young man steps forward. The president smiles noting. The injured right hand reaches out to take the man's left but before their hands meet two gunshots. Strike the president. The first grazing has chest the second in the stomach. The innocent looking young man is self proclaimed. Anarchists Leeann show Gush the bandage on his hand concealed. A revolver. Mckinley sings back into the arms of detective. Geary and my shot kyrie seats. The president back into a chair on buttons his best. He sees nothing but blood. Yes I fear you are Mr President. The man directly behind the assassin is a hulking six foot four black waiter James F. Parker. He quickly knocked the pistol from the Sassoon's grip with a powerful punch. He spins the assassin around like a top third blow breaks the assassins knows. The fourth knocked out several teeth from his chair. The president raises his right hand red with his own blood and cries out but no one heard him on the president's orders yeary and other officers tear the hulking parker away from the assassin.

"So McKinley wanted a quick end to the war. He knew that continued. Conflict would endanger his reelection in the coming nineteen hundred contest and he was right sensing the political weakness. Democrats pounced on the issue. Many Democrats pushed for Admiral. George Dewey to run as their nineteen hundred Democratic candidate. They felt that dewey. The naval hero from the Battle of Manila was the perfect choice to challenge. Mckinley competency in the Philippine disaster. But Dewey's early bid for president was plagued by Gaffes I. He claimed that being president was much like being a soldier he would simply follow the orders of Congress. He also put his foot in his mouth when he admitted to never voting in presidential election then papers balked when he made the claim to a reporter that our next war will be with Germany. Though he might have been prophetic the press at the time found that prediction preposterous do his ultimate sin however proved to be that he married a Catholic because of the bad press. Dewey withdrew his name from consideration in. May of nineteen hundred. Dewey's withdrawal left the door open for William Jennings Bryan the previous Democratic candidate and outspoken critic of the conflict in the Philippines and a man ready to reclaim his status as the true leader of the Democratic Party when the Democratic Party in Kansas City for their convention. Brian was there obvious choice. The vote for his nomination was unanimous. Then they settled on ad lie. Stevenson for vice president like Bryan. Stevenson was a strong proponent for the free coinage silver the main plank of the Democratic Platform in the eighteen ninety six election one landmark event at the nineteen hundred Democratic National Convention was when they welcomed the first female delegate when one of the Utah delegates was unable to serve Elizabeth M Cohen of Utah stepped in. She made history. When she seconded the nomination of William Jennings Bryan. Mckinley had sealed his second nomination long before the Republican National Convention in Nineteen hundred prosperity in the country had been restored United States at one successful war with Spain. The country was a growing empire. No other Republican dreamed of attempting to replace McKinley. Even Admiral. Dewey thought about running against McKinley now endorsed him in fact. The only person who thought McKinley should not run for a second term was McKinley himself. In September of one thousand. Nine McKinley had written. I have had all the honor. There is in this place and had responsibility enough to kill any man but out of a sense of duty to the country. Mckinley agreed to stand for reelection. While mckinlay's renomination was a certainty. That choice for vice president was not late. Eighteen Ninety eight then vice president Hobart had fallen ill with a heart condition. He had nearly collapsed on the Senate floor while delivering an address at the time party chairman mark. Hanna promised press nothing. But death on earth and stop the renomination of Vice President Hobart but Hobart died on November twenty first eighteen ninety nine complete the ticket for the election of nineteen hundred.

The ninth and Tenth Black Cavalry regiments known as the Buffalo soldiers lead. The charge forced to abandon their horses. The buffalo soldiers must take the hill on foot but under heavy fire valley advances repelled. They find cover at the bottom of the hill. Hold this position. Then when the orders given we'll take that hill at all hazards but no orders have come and this captains men have suffered heavy losses from Spanish. Gunfire from above retreat would make them open targets pinned down with nowhere to run just then from the nearby jungle spectacle man on horseback emerges from the trees and charges toward them more cavalryman follow him and even more troops follow on foot. It's the First Volunteer Cavalry Regiment. Otherwise known as the rough riders when the spectacle man in the SOMBRERO reaches the bottom of the hill he jumps off his horse and Grins at the pinned down officer. Captain Me and my boys are here to help. Glad to see you but we can't move from this position. Got US pin down. That's why I'm here. Captain my orders to help you in the regular take that hill. I've received no such orders. And we're holding this position can't take those hills just by firing at them. Captain y you suggest we do have believe an idea. I'm tend to rush them. The rough riders are a rag Tag Group of Volunteers Motley Group of Frontiers Meant Ivy League athletes. Texas Rangers Native Americans they all enlisted for the adventure and glory in battle the spectacle man leading them. Theodore Roosevelt is determined to take the hill and the glory that comes with. I will keep my man line where they are. You will not advance until orders which say otherwise Captain Gina where the colonel is no sir have been in communication with no Sir than I in the ranking officer. Here an I give the order to charge a will not move without an order from the colonel captain. Do you watch men to die on that hill of yours? No Sir let my writers through when Theodore Roosevelt started his charge up the hill. Several of the Buffalo soldiers who had been eager to make the advance Join Roosevelt. And the rough riders. Together the Group of White Black Native American soldiers resolutely sprang up. The hill cheering running forward between firing shots. Richard Harding Davis a reporter who observed the charge described it this way. They had no glittering bayonets. They were not masked and regular array and were a few men in advance bunched together and creeping up a steep sunny hill the top which roared and flashed with flame. The men held their guns pressed across the breast and stepped heavily as they climbed. They walked Greek death at every step. It was a miracle of self sacrifice a triumph of bulldog courage which one watch breathless with wonder the Spaniards atop. The hill fled the charge and the rough. Riders took the summit in July of eighteen. Ninety eight feud or Roosevelt emerged from Cuba. A national hero. His legendary charge up San Juan Hill launched him quickly into the governor's mansion of New York and soon into Washington politics. The United States emerged from Cuba. An empire the splendid little war was just that relatively small compared to other conflicts. It lasted only three months and cost the. Us only four hundred casualties but Cuba was free. Which boded well for the speculators and though the teller amendment prevented the annexation of Cuba the spoils of war were still monumental for the United States. It gained both Puerto Rico and Guam. The American empire was born and President. Mckinley rained. The war was also huge success for the US Navy on May first eighteen ninety eight just ten days after the declaration of war with Spain the US had proven its naval. Might IN THE BATTLE OF MANILA. Manila was the capital and largest city in the Philippines. Manila was also the final resting place of the once. Great Spanish Fleet outmatched by the newer American ships. The aging Spanish vessels were soundly defeated. They sank to the bottom of Manila Bay. Symbolizing the final fall of the Spanish empire the Philippines were yet another new addition to the American Empire but taking the Philippines would soon proved to be the first dilemma of American imperialism. And a problem for mckinlay's relection most of president McKinley constituents craved expansion. Though he had been resistant to the war with Spain President Mckinley eagerly sought to expand the country through diplomacy so he set his sights on another strategic group of islands in the Pacific. He orchestrated treaty to annex the island Kingdom of Hawaii at the end of the Nineteenth Century Asia was emerging as a powerful market for trade like the Philippines who why would be an important stop on a trade route to China. It would also serve as an important military outpost. Japan was growing ever more aggressive in the region. A naval base in Hawaii would strategically defend the West Coast but Japan had also set its sights on Hawaii when Japan hurt the United States intention to Annex Islands. They sent warships in protest but this sign of aggression only helped president McKinley pushed through the annexation on July seventh eighteen ninety eight he signed the newlands resolution making Hawaii a U. S. territory as the country grew so did the president's popularity but a situation evolving in the Philippines threaten Kinley popularity and any chance. He added a second term. The Philippines were group of islands in the Pacific surrendered by the Spanish to the United States at the end of the Spanish American war but unlike Guam and Puerto Rico. The situation in the Philippines was complicated similar to the Cubans. The Filipino people have been fighting for independence from Spain. This put President Mckinley in a politically difficult position. Would the United States be liberator or an oppressor too many Americans? The Philippines were just simply unknown. Even President Mckinley famously said when we received the cable from Admiral Dewey telling the taking of the Philippines. I looked up their location on the globe. I could not have told were those Darn Islands. Were within two thousand miles. Ultimately McKinley chose to possess the little known islands. He'd taken from Spain. This decision would lock the United States in a bloody conflict. That would last the remainder of McKinley term. He would later say if all do we had just sailed away when he smashed that Spanish fleet. What a lot of trouble. He would've saved US almost immediately. The Filipino independence movement caused a political backlash United States. These islands wanted their independence and the United States. Deny them their liberty many believe that. This was antithetical to the ideas of America. Soon an anti imperialist league four it was spearheaded by men like the Titan. Andrew Carnegie Former President Grover Cleveland and even the famous author Mark Twain of the Philippine Occupation Twain wrote. I should hate to see the eagle places talons on any other land even the genius. Who Helped McKinley win the presidency? Senator Mark Hanna vocalise his dismay on December tenth. Eighteen Ninety eight annexation of the Philippines passed Congress by one vote but discontent in the Philippines was a bomb waiting to explode a war for independence. There would spark and McKinley would find himself on the wrong side on a sweltering night in February eighteen. Ninety nine a group of US soldiers were ambushed by Philippine forces. A tense firefight lasted throughout the night. The next morning the leader the Filipino Liberation Army. Emilio Aguinaldo attempted a ceasefire but the US army refused and went on a bloody offensive to destroy the freedom fighters when the fighting was done. One hundred ninety four American soldiers were injured. Forty four were dead. The Filipinos casualties were far worse. Over five thousand Filipinos fighting for independence died at the hands of the United States. After this event the conflict soon devolved into a long and costly guerrilla war as a consequence the anti-imperialist protests at home grew louder. Mark Twain declared that the. Us flag should be resigned. William Jennings Bryan mckinlay's Democratic opponent in the eighteen ninety six election quipped. We said we are going to bring prosperity and democracy to the Filipinos. We better not educate them because they might learn to read the Declaration of Independence President. Mckinley defended his annexing. The Philippines claiming it was not tyranny but rather benevolent assimilation. And his is the indigenous peoples there were benefiting from Christianity and Western society the Filipinos felt otherwise using guerrilla tactics to hit and run American troops. They delivered the. Us significant casualties Americans also suffered heavy losses from jangled diseases like malaria and during the darkest moments of the conflict both sides committed horrible atrocities. By the end of the conflict. Five thousand Americans would be dead. Almost twenty thousand Filipinos would be killed by America's benevolent assimilation. America's first experience of war in Asia was a nightmare..

"By the time the ship was evacuated. The main had sunk low enough that the deck was almost level with the lifeboats as his custom. Captain Sixty was the last to leave as they rowed ashore. The captain surveyed the bodies of his men floating in the water. Two hundred sixty eight men over two thirds of his crew were dead the Bugler Newton who captain sixty had listened to just a half hour before was among them. Taps was the last song he ever played on March second. Eighteen ninety seven two days before his inauguration. Republican president-elect William McKinley had been invited to the White House by outgoing Democratic President Grover Cleveland. They're Cleveland warned McKinley about the expansionist agenda of many in Congress in his inaugural address. Mckinley had declared we want no wars of conquest. We must avoid the temptation of territorial aggression. War should never be entered upon until every agency of peace has failed but the sinking of the main would force a reluctant McKinley to wage. Exactly what? He cautioned against a war of conquest while. Mckinley hoped to avoid war. Many Americans have been chomping at the bit for conflict. European countries like England and France were aggressively expanding their empires in Africa and Asia the Dominant Naval Power in the Americas the Spanish empire had been on the decline smelling blood in the water American speculators salivating at the prospect of Spain abandoning its imperial conquests. Trade routes mineral deposits and fertile land. Were all up for grabs. If Spain retreated from the region many speculators had set their sights on the neighboring island of Cuba. The fertile island was perfect. For growing fruit sugarcane tobacco many had hoped that a Cuban revolution would free the country from the Spanish Empire but the revolution had not been going well. The Cubans had demanded independence. Spain aggressively countered the rebellion the Spanish crown launched a scorched earth campaign burning homes and crops and rounding up the freedom fighters in concentration camps. This inhumane treatment of the rebels allowed American speculators to voice moral rage an advocate for war. Then the pro war element of the American press gave voice to that outrage and the expansionists and Congress began to beat the drums of war yet. Outgoing president Cleveland and incoming President Mckinley and both been unwilling to get blood on their hands during the campaign of eighteen. Ninety six Theodore Roosevelt had set of McKinley. He is not a strong man. I should feel rather uneasy about him in a serious crisis. Do Hope he will take a strong stand about Cuba. Mckinley had not wished to start a war with Spain. He himself had seen more. Mckinley was the last veteran of the civil war to serve as president he had written to a friend. I've been through one more. I've seen the dead piled up. I do not WanNa see another. But despite mckinlay's wishes American tragedy dropped war directly in his lap on February Fifteenth. Eighteen ninety eight when the USS main exploded off the coast of Cuba. Two thirds of the three hundred fifty man crew were killed. An immediate investigation to the main explosion was launched by the US naval board of inquiry. They concluded that the cause of the explosion was a mind place beneath the ship. The result of the inquiry was playing. It was an act of war seventy five years later that inquiry would-be challenged in modern investigation. Determine that the blast most likely came from within the ship they would come to the conclusion that the cause of the main explosion was probably not a mind but simply an accident a spontaneous ignition of coal store next to the Reserve magazine but in Eighteen Ninety eight without modern investigative tools. The mind theory was widely embraced and in the heat of the moment. The mere accusation of a cowardly dastardly attacked by Spain. Calls public outrage. This outrage gave wore advocates justice. Excuse they crave for action. The sensationalist newspapers a William Randolph hearst and Joseph Pulitzer cried out retaliation known for their yellow journalism. These papers exaggerated story played on public fear. Headlines proclaimed Spanish treasury they claim destruction of the worship main was the work of an enemy William Harris even offered a reward. His New York Journal Fifty Thousand Dollars for information leading to the perpetrator of the main outrage. The press convinced Americans that the Spanish were responsible and sway public opinion towards war. Everyone rallied around the call. Remember the main to hell with Spain. Congress also clamored for retribution. Many wanted a declaration of war. The pressure on President McKinley was immense and yet. Mckinley resisted a close friend. Later told the story that in private the situation McKinley weep like a thirteen year. Old Boy. Mckinley told his friend. I have not slept over three hours a night for over two weeks. Congress is trying to drive us into war with Spain. The Spanish fleet is in Cuban waters. And we haven't enough ammunition on the Atlantic seacoast to fire salute before pro-war expansionist the sinking of the main had given them all the ammunition they needed. There is a popular joke. A President Mckinley at the time. Why is the president's mind like his bed because someone has to make it up for him before he can use it? The men of President Mckinley Cabinet certainly knew this to be true. They joined Congress in the call for war. And when McKinley resisted some took action to sway his opinion Kinley Secretary of war Russell Alder secretly approached the powerful Senator from Massachusetts Henry Cabot Lodge. Lodge was a vocal advocate for American imperialism. Secretary of War Alger begged the senator to pressure the president to declare war for Alger. The reasoning was purely political. The majority of public opinion was behind the war if the Republicans wanted to remain the dominant party. They must embrace the popular opinion secretary alter worn McKinley that if he did not declare war he was in danger of ruining himself and the Republican Party. By standing in the way of the People's wishes the cacophony of voices calling for war was deafening and finally the president gave in on April eleventh eighteen. Ninety Eight McKinley. Ask Congress for a declaration of war with Spain primary reason. He cited in helping Cuba. Was It's close. Proximity to the country keenly said it is especially our duty. Ford is right at our door. He publicly accepted the theory that the main had been sunk by a Spanish mine. He chastised the Spanish government for their failure as he put it to assure safety. And security to a vessel of the American navy in the harbor of Vana on a mission of peace on April Twenty first eighteen ninety eight the Republican controlled. Congress held vote on the declaration of war with Spain. The Senate voted forty two thirty five for the measure. The House overwhelmingly voted for war. Three hundred ten to six critics of the declaration claimed the war was solely conquest to answer these accusations. Congress also passed the teller amendment which limited the conflict to solely aiding Cuba and it's rebellion prohibited Cuba's annexation and once the conflict was over the. Us would leave. Congress also voted to give McKinley fifty million dollars to strengthen the US military volunteers enthusiastically lined up to enlist in June. Seventeen thousand troops landed in Cuba meeting little resistance the conflict with Spain which became known as the Splendid Little War would redefine. Us foreign policy would also create new battle lines which define the election fight of nineteen.

Richard P bland a revere Democrat older statesman and strong silvery was viewed as the presumptive nominee on the first ballot. Bland took two hundred thirty five votes nearly one hundred more than Brian but not enough for a majority on the second ballot as lesser candidates dropped out. Brian gained votes for a total of one ninety seven but so too did bland with two eighty one. The New York Times described the horse race that followed in the breathless tone of a track reporter. The third ballot began suspiciously for Bland. But it soon turned. Brian's way bland. Gains were ten but Brian increased his vote. Twenty two when the fourth ballot began with the Shifting Alabama's twenty two votes from bland. Brian and California Idaho and Kansas gave their votes. The Brian. The end was in sight. The Illinois delegates left the hall while the votes were being completed. Everybody knew what that meant. The announcement of the fourth ballot with Brian leaning with two hundred eighty votes and bland. Next with two forty was a signal for a rumpus was stopped with difficulty after much. Delay the fifth and final ballot was begun as the roll-call proceeded for the fifth ballot and exciting seeing developed Alabama California Colorado Georgia Idaho. Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Michigan Mississippi Nebraska North Carolina South Carolina. South Dakota Tennessee. Virginia and most of the territories enrolled their votes for Brian. But when the fifth call was completed he still needed votes to recruit the line. The Brian men organized a march about the Nebraska delegates and under the inspiration or infection of excitement. Presently were able to collect near a majority of two-thirds Illinois came back into the hall to swell the list with her forty eight votes but Illinois did not nominate him. It was not until governor stone. Speaking for Missouri cast thirty four votes for Brian. The Blather skype was selected as the presidential candidate of the democratic popular conviction but not all democrats were happy with Brian. Speech wants the Democratic Convention had chosen silver as their platform. Gold Democrats went into open revolt. They attempted a coup and approach President Cleveland to run as a third party candidate but Cleveland was finished with politics and refused to go for a third term instead. He chose retirement and as a final betrayal to Democrats. Grover CLEVELAND. Endorse the Republican candidate calling McKinley. A sound money man but there were three parties in this race the Democrats embrace of silver as a key plank in its platform left the People's Party with a difficult decision. The People's Party was made up silver farmers and labourers. If they ran a candidate of their own they would split the silver vote with Democrats all but guaranteeing McKinley victory so at their conference in Saint. Louis they chose to throw their support behind the Democratic candidate William Jennings Bryan making the three way race. A head to head competition. The election of eighteen ninety six is often called the battle of the Standards Economic Policies. Were the hot issues and the Republicans and Democrats offered sharply differing views. Republican William McKinley campaigned on protectionist tariffs and the gold standard planks. One and two of the Republican Platform Democrat William Jennings Bryan argued the opposite low tariffs and the free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold but both these platforms carry political and economic risk. The panic of eighteen ninety three was largely blamed on two factors McKinley tariff and the Sherman Silver Purchase Act yet. Mckinley wanted to pass another high tariff and Brian wanted to again. Establish a silver standard. In order to win. Both candidates would have to convince the public to give their policy another shot. The two candidates also ran their campaigns very differently. Brian was a gifted order and traveled across the country. Speaking directly to voters he ran a grassroots campaign going town to town crossing more than eighteen thousand miles and giving twenty speeches a day. Six hundred and all the McKinley campaign led by millionaire. Marcus Hanna operated less from the stump and more in boardrooms McKinley stayed put conducting a front porch campaign where he spoke to small groups who visited him at his home. Meanwhile Hanna accorded big business as a result. An enormous amount of money flowed through their campaign while Brian had a six hundred fifty thousand dollar war chest. Mckinley amassed a staggering. Three Point. Five million with some estimates as high sixteen million equal to half a billion dollars. Today this money changed the campaign and the future of American politics at the time the country had fifteen million perspective voters throughout the campaign. Hanna littered them with over two hundred fifty million pamphlets seventeen marketing pieces. For every voter in America he also freely distributed gold bug lapel pins antitax. Imprinted a fake dollar bills with Brian face on them that read in God. We Trust for the other. Fifty three cents insinuating that under silver system. The dollar would lose more than half its value. Hannah also weaponized the in September eighteen ninety six. A report was issued by the New York Times from an anonymous psychiatrist whose analysis described Democrat Brian as possessing a relentless and mental vagabond age an intense over mastering and growing egotism and grandiose ideas that are almost if not quite delusional. The doctor then blamed this confused illogical mental state and what was called. Brian's bad hereditary history mckinlay's allies and business made their opinions known to including voting advice in notes attached to employees payslips. The business owners message was clear. The survival of their companies and therefore their employees jobs dependent on a McKinley presidency. Meanwhile Brian continued stumping. Speaking himself horse trying to convince the millions that came to see him that low tariffs and silver. Were the way forward but Brian was just one. Man Has Republican machine hired scores of gifted orders to campaign for McKinley including New York. City Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt so when the election was held in November of eighteen ninety six the result was clear. Money Talks Louder Than William Jennings Bryan ever could. Brian did well in the south and West but his victories. There could not overcome McKinley. Lead in the numerous and densely populated eastern states. Mckinley defeated Brian with two hundred. Seventy one electoral votes and fifty one percent of the popular vote but state by state. The popular vote was not nearly so close. Mckinley had an overwhelming lead in every New England. State New York Pennsylvania in Illinois. Brian won commanding majorities in the South and Mountain West sectionalism. In one thousand. Nine hundred America was as alive as it ever had been. As different areas in the country saw different solutions to their social and economic problems but mckinlay's first term in office would not be defined by his economic policy it would be defined by his foreign policy with a splendid little war. Mckinley would extend manifest destiny past the coast and into the he would seek to transform America from country to an empire on the next episode of wicked game the election of one thousand nine hundred as the country emerges from the worst economic crisis it has ever seen. United States expands its continental borders but the cost of American imperialism is a war with Spain and a campaign of aggression in the Philippines in a rematch of the eighteen.

Which was the homeless secession. Oh his if you like their only three things on earth which can his goose a serpent. A man with no knowledge whatsoever of South Carolina's Grand History. South Carolina demands the emancipation of the white slaves. Silvery Tillman likens the gold standard to slavery for the poor farmer though the crown mostly agrees with him on silver grown tired of Tillman's abrasive tirades and civil war references. Another speaker takes the podium. It's Bourbon Democrat Senator Hill of New York. I'm a Democrat. I'm not a revolutionist. My mission here. Today is to unite not divide. I therefore start out with this proposition that the Democratic Party stands in favour neither of silver standard nor of a gold standard. We should not attempt the experiment of the free and unlimited coinage of silver with the cooperation of other great nations hills. Lack of support for silver proofs is undoing many other. Democrats from the northeast degree with him. They are in the minority the majority of the crowd our civil rights and make their supportive. Silver no just then a freshman congressman from Nebraska takes to the podium. His name is William Jennings Bryan. The homeless citizen in all the land when clad in the armor of a righteous cause is stronger than all the hosts of air. I come to speak to you in defense. For 'cause as holy as the cause of liberty the cause of humanity William Jennings Bryan is only thirty six yet. He's already found his way onto the coveted ways and means committee there. He's proven himself a powerful order and he's used his gift to push for a very popular issue. Silver there are two ideas of government. There are those who believe that. If you will only legislate to make the well to do prosperous. Their prosperity will lead through to those below. The Democratic idea however has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous their prosperity will find way up through every class which rest upon them if Republicans dare to come out in the open field and defend the gold standard as a good thing we will fight them to the uppermost having behind the producing masses of this nation and the world supported by the commercial interest. The Laboring Interest Tyler's everywhere. We will answer their demand for gold standard by saying to them. You shall not press down upon the brow of Labor this crown of Thorns. You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold..
