When I first heard of this story, the first thing I did, was examine the 8th president Martin Van Buren, why was HE the only one who was a president
without the bloodline.. I found out some interesting things, figured to share them with you!
As mentioned in the thread, he was the first president of the United States to be born in America.
His administration was largely characterized by the economic hardship of his time, the Panic of 1837. He was scapegoated for the depression and called
"Martin Van Ruin" by his political opponents. Van Buren was voted out of office after four years, losing to Whig candidate William Henry Harrison.
(scape goat) like most presidents as we think...
Van Buren had been active in politics from at least the age of 17 when he attended a party convention in Troy, New York where he worked to secure the
Congressional nomination for John Van Ness. (a little about Ness, he was the president of the National Metropolitan Bank from 1814 until his death
1846.) Van Buren also supported Aaron Burr (where there is conspicarys aabout him, also he shot and kill Alexander Hamilton)
"Without strong national political organizations, there would be nothing to moderate the prejudices between free and slaveholding states." ("Martin
Van Buren" 103–114) (even though he was in the 3rd party the free soil, which was opposed slavery, so this quote is odd to me)
On March 5, 1829, President Jackson appointed Van Buren Secretary of State, an office which probably had been assured to him before the election, and
he resigned the governorship.
(IMPORTANT) there was another 3rd party called the anti-freemason party, before it was taken over by the Whigs party.. they were opposed Van Buren..
cause hew as a mason. en.wikipedia.org... One brief Albany Journal paragraph on Martin Van Buren included the words "dangerous," "demagogue,"
"corrupt," "degrade," "pervert," "prostitute," "debauch" and "cursed." (maybe why they had Hamilton killed, becaues he
was exposing the illumanti?!?!
In 1839, Joseph Smith, Jr., the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement visited Van Buren to plead for the U.S. to help roughly 20,000 Mormon
settlers of Independence, Missouri, who were forced from the state during the 1838 Mormon War there. The Governor of Missouri, Lilburn Boggs, had
issued an executive order on October 27, 1838, known as the "Extermination Order". It authorized troops to use force against Mormons to
"exterminate or drive [them] from the state."
I had a bunch written out.. now I can't find it.. but idk maybe other people know more about this.. I swore when I looked up his elections he didn't
have the wining vote, but guess I was wrong.. hmm idk
