De-pimped - here’s the entire article:

There is evidence that Aaron Burr unsuccessfully attempted to get the British to join in his scheme. In late 1806 after an extended stay at the home of his friend, Andrew Jackson, Burr gathered a small army in preparation for an invasion of New Orleans. When it became clear that their “secret” plan was no longer secret, one of Burr’s partners turned on him in February 1807. Burr was indicted for treason and eventually put on trial for one of the highest crimes against our nation.

With the sort of political dirty trick that would become a Democrat hallmark, Burr was acquitted after dining with John Marshall the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court – Marshall would be the presiding judge at Burr’s trial. Moreover, the foreman of Burr’s jury was John Randolph, a known anti-Jeffersonian. Marshall threw out most of the evidence introduced by George Poindexter, the government’s prosecutor. [1]

In the court of public opinion, however, Burr was convicted and branded a traitor who had attempted to conduct a violent overthrow of our fledgling nation.

The heat of public anger was such that Burr had to flee to Europe where he was kicked out of several countries. Upon his arrival in England he tried to generate support for his plot to overthrow Mexico and make it his Anglophile fiefdom, but the British were not swayed by his sycophancy and ordered him out.

The records show he used the same approach in Sweden, Denmark, Germany and France – where he appealed to Napoleon. Burr left Europe in 1811, but not after likely leaving the British with the impression that America was NOT a united county and could possibly be recaptured. Is it a coincidence that Burr’s stay in England ended shortly before the War of 1812 between America and England which centered on New Orleans, the object of Burr’s ambitions?

Burr booked passage on a French ship to sail back to America but the ship was captured by the English. Upon recognizing him, they took Burr into custody until May 1812. Soon afterward, he slithered back into New York City and began building Tammany Hall into the corruption and perversion of American ideals it would be for the next one hundred and fifty years. [1]

In Burr’s final years he followed a pattern familiar to today’s Democrats by becoming a kept man. He married Eliza Jumel, a rich widow twenty years his junior. The pair shared many points of common ground. For example, she was a onetime prostitute who had worked the streets of Providence, Rhode Island and was rumored to have murdered her first husband.

Eliza was also kicked out of France after making overtures to Napoleon to bring him to America. It must have seemed like a perfect match at first. Jumel wanted to marry the former Vice President to increase her social stature and since he was broke Burr needed to marry some money. But after three years the street-wise former hooker realized Burr was bleeding her fortune dry and sued for divorce. On September 14, 1836–the day the divorce became final– Burr died in the St. James hotel on Staten Island. [2]
The Aaron Burr – Andrew Jackson connection

Andrew Jackson was an unabashed enemy of American nationalism. To further his presidential ambitions, Jackson cooperated with the dangerous Aaron Burr and his henchman Martin Van Buren, both of whom were doing the bidding of the infamous British secret service agent Jeremy Bentham.

These four men worked for years to undermine the unity of the United States so the Louisiana and Florida Territories as well as Mexico could be seized by Burr and made into satellites of the British Empire with Aaron Burr as the new nation’s dictator….. TO BE CONTINUED

I never cared for Andrew Jackson because of what he did to my ancestors (Trail of Tears), but cut him some slack because of what he went through with the British as a youth during the American Revolution.

Aaron Burr, however, was a scumbag from the word "go!" I believe that I read somewhere that Al Gore is one of his descendants as is Gore Vidal, the famous fudgepacker author.
