    This installment continues by exposing how James Buchanan worked diligently to spread and defend slavery. Democrat President James Buchanan supported the Compromise of 1850 which required the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, forbidding the spread of slavery west of Missouri. He condemned Republican David Wilmot’s bill, known as The Wilmot Proviso, which would have forbidden the expansion of slavery to territory gained in the Mexican War. The Wilmot Proviso was defeated by Southern Democrats. Buchanan was an author of the Ostend Manifesto. The Ostend Manifesto urged the annexation of Cuba by force and expansion of slavery into the territory. This...

    The story of the Democrats (available in its entirety free see details below) continues by exposing how Democrat James Buchanan helped insure America would be plunged into a Civil War and the evidence that he was our first Gay president. James Buchanan 1857 to 1861 Among the pre-Civil War Democrat Presidents, perhaps the worst and most disastrous to America was James Buchanan, a Pennsylvanian who is widely thought of as America’s first gay President. [25] Buchanan, a member of both the Jackson and the Pierce Administrations, was sufficiently light in the loafers to have been regularly referred to as Mrs....

    . August 6, 2014 Newt Gingrich : Obama, Buchanan, and Baldwin -- The Cost of Rejecting Reality ===================================================== President Obama is in serious danger of joining a select group of disastrous leaders who put their people and their country in desperate circumstances that cost lives and risked ruinous defeat. Almost everywhere you look around the world, the situation is worse for the United States and worse for freedom than when President Obama took office—in many cases catastrophically so. There isn’t much sign that he recognizes this or is particularly concerned. Iraq is the most obvious (and potentially most dangerous) example....

    Outspoken gay former Congressman Barney Frank was in San Francisco this week and told a gathering of the Commonwealth Club that while he won’t consider a presidential run, he predicted the U.S. could have a gay president in 20 years. Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat, has never shied from speaking his mind, and he held forth on a wide range of topics during an interview with gay radio reporter Scott Shafer of KQED. The audience of over 500 people, including former Ambassador James C. Hormel and his partner, Michael Nguyen, gave Frank a standing ovation as he stepped to the stage....

    After making its way through the state Senate's Judiciary and Education Committees over the last month, a bill that would require schools to incorporate information on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) Americans into their curricula passed by 23-14 on the Senate floor Thursday. The measure, which goes to the Assembly next, addresses high bullying rates of LGBT youth and the absence of LGBT Americans from official accounts of history in school curricula. It would expand on existing laws that require instructional materials to include accurate portrayals of the role and contribution of culturally and racially diverse groups. That list,...
  • How the Worst President Ever Ended Up on a Controverisal New Coin (James Buchanan)

    Today, the U.S. Treasury released a $1 coin commemorating former President James Buchanan. And people aren't happy about it. To understand why, some background is helpful. In 2007, thanks to a bill promoted by then-Senator John Sununu of New Hampshire, the Treasury began minting $1 coins with the likenesses of former Presidents, starting with George Washington. The coins -- which have been appearing ever since, featuring a new President every three months -- are meant to improve use and circulation of America's dollar coins, which are often seen as an awkward misfit among currency, neither fish nor fowl. Sununu's initiative...

    Barack Obama is the dumbest president...EVER. That is a reasonable conclusion once you've assessed the first nineteen months of his presidency and compared it to the definition of intelligence put together by researchers in the field. Although the mainstream media have spent the last two years proclaiming Obama "super-smart" or, as Newsweek put it, "sort of God" in stature and brilliance, the 44th president of the United States is poised to surpass our 15th president, James Buchanan. Jr., as the White House occupant who has made the dumbest moves while in office. With two years left, he is on the...
  • Federalism and Individual Sovereignty

    Cato Journal, Vol. 15, Nos. 2-3 | Fall/Winter 1995/1996 | James M. Buchanan
    Federalism and Individual Sovereignty James M. Buchanan I have been both surprised and disturbed by two sources of opposition to efforts to move toward federalist structures in which political authority is divided between levels of government. I refer, first, to the opposition in Europe, mainly in Britain, to movements toward effective European federalism. Second, I refer to the successful agitation that blocked the proposed Conference of the States in the United States in 1995. What is disturbing about these sources of opposition to the very idea of political federalism is that both emerge from groups that are identified variously to...
