James \j(a)-mes\ as a boy's name (also used as girl's name James), is pronounced jayms. It is of Hebrew origin, and the meaning of James is "he who supplants". From Late Latin Iacomus, a variant of Iacobus, Latin form of Greek Iakobos and New Testament Greek form of the Old Testament form Jacob (Hebrew Yaakov). Biblical: one of the 12 apostles of Jesus, who possibly was also a cousin of Jesus. The King James Bible is named in reference to James I of England (16th-17th century). Spanish pronunciation of Jaime: (HYE-may), Scottish: (JAY-mee). See also Kimo and Santiago. A famous fictional character with this name is the British spy James Bond, created by author Ian Fleming.

A few days ago it was "Presidents Day" so figured I would check out and see how many of these might be related. So far I found that through my dads side of the family. We are related as cousins to John Adams, John Quincy Adams, James Garfield, Chester Arthur, Gerald Ford , Franklin D Roosevelt and last but not least both George Bushs. G. W. Bush was a 10th cousin. I wonder if I can visit him next time I visit Texas? Pretty cool!
ANSWERS TO OUR QUIZ! 1) a. Martin Van Buren, the eighth president. The previous presidents were born as British subjects. 2) c. You’d think it was Monroe but it was his secretary of state, John Quincy Adams. 3) d. Teddy Roosevelt was the youngest serving president, assuming the job at the age of 42 in 1901 when President William McKinley was assassinated. Kennedy, at 43, was the youngest to be elected, in 1960. 4) a. William Howard Taft, the 27th president, from 1909–1913, served as chief justice from 1921-1930. He was also dean of the University of Cincinnati Law School and U.S. secretary of war. 5) John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. 6) c. Eisenhower. 7) d. Lincoln was 56 when he died on April 15th, 1865. 8) b. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, on April 30, 1939, at the opening of the World’s Fair in New York. 9) Presidents who were assassinated: Abraham Lincoln (1865), James Garfield (1881), William McKinley (1901), John F.

So, now that we've reviewed which U.S. presidents in history did the most to advance science, let's turn our attention to which presidents have done the most for math -- and the time U.S. President James Garfield wrote a proof for the Pythagorean Theorem.
in the same life path as these people: The Life Path 7 Natural Skill Set: Careful researcher, investigation, circumspection, foresight, analysis, scientific and inventive thinking, contemplation in solitude, decisive, penetrating wit and acumen. With excessive 7 energy or negative application of 7 energy: Overly reserved and secretive, shrewdness, bossy, sarcastic, cynical, over-analyzing, argumentative, harsh temperament, conviction to a fault. The 7 Presidents: James Garfield, William Henry Harrison, Harry S Truman, John F. Kennedy, George H. W. Bush The 7 Life Path makes a surprising (to me) showing as the number is one that shouldn't even want to be President. It has done well with two great leaders, Truman and JFK, and Geo. H. W. Bush wasn't that far off the mark, as well. Two of the five were assassinated in office. Harry S Truman - The greatest of the 7 Presidents was Harry S. Truman. Truman was a vice President who rarely saw the President he worked for and knew little about what was going on su . ...

All of these presidents seem to know exactly how our economy works, who's pulling the strings and the effects they have over everything that we do. You can tell they know this by the words that they say; they all speak about such things. But, sadly, it's all rhetoric. None of them actually do anything to stop it or prevent it. "Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce. and when you realize the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate." President James Garfield, 1881
James Garfield, the 20th President of the US, could write Greek with his left hand & Latin with his right.
The only person to serve less time in the White House than James Garfield was William Henry Harrison, America's ninth president.
Part 3... Granted the relationships are sometimes distant 10th or 15th cousins, but in a country with hundreds of millions to choose from, this simply cannot be chance or coincidence. Gary Boyd Roberts, a genealogist at the New England Historic Genealogical Society thoroughly traced these connections in his book “Ancestors of American Presidents.” George W. Bush himself is directly related to 16 former U.S. presidents including George Washington, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James Garfield, Grover Cleveland, Teddy Roosevelt, William H. Taft, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford. Bush is closely related to the king of Albania and has kinship with every member of the British royal family and the House of Windsor. He is related to 20 British Dukes, the 13th cousin of Britain’s Queen Mother, and of her daughter Queen Elizabeth. He is 13th cousin once removed from Prince Charles and has direct des ...
Observation! When you walk around carrying a book you more apt to meet people who enjoy reading the same things you do. If you carry around a kindle you miss the possibility of meeting an interesting person. I have now, in the past three weeks have finished books abut Andrew Johnson, Rutherford B Hayes, James Garfield, Chester Arthur and Teddy Roosevelt and Wm Howard Taft.

I've got news for the Republicans and the Democrats alike. I really do believe that the American people have been left with a bad taste in their mouths, by your Pro Party Politics. And the same old sell out that you do to the bankers, lawyers and special interest groups in this country. You talk the big talk. But you are all sold out to the highest bidder. Maybe in the next two elections it won't matter how much money either side pulls in and who gets bought by who. Maybe we will just kick everyone of you to the curb. As you have done us. James Garfield was the last president we had that was a FREE MAN in 1880. He made it a whole 200 days in office, before you killed him. When we got Chester Arthur, (The Father of the steel ship Navy and the National Guard) who finished James Garfield's term. Think about it Republicans and Democrats alike. NO MORE PRO PARTY POLITICS ! Why don't you do what's best for the American people, before the American people do what's best and send all (each and everyone) of you bac ...
Chester Arthur had been appointed by President Grant to the post of Collector of the Port of New York which at the time was an incredibly powerful political position. Rutherford B. Hayes "fired" Arthur in an attempt to reform the spoils system which Andrew Jackson had established and which gave Roscoe Conkling great power in New York. Conkling greatly opposed Hayes for the remainder of his Presidency forming the "Stalwart" faction of the Republican party which supported Ulysses S. Grant for President in 1880. James Garfield and Chester A. Arthur were joined together on a compromise ticket for the Republicans as the Stalwart faction which supported Grant could not get enough support to overcome the "Half-Breeds" who supported James Blaine. Arthur would become President when "Stalwart of Stalwarts" Charles J. Guiteau shot Garfield leading to his death.
This is the kind of idiocy we need to get the *** away from. A quote from another page: "Five US Presidents who sought to abolish the private-owned Federal Reserve Bank were assassinated: 1) Andrew Jackson (Survived); 2) Abraham Lincoln; 3) James Garfield; 4) William McKinley; 5) John Kennedy." Andrew Jackson had no objection to the idea of a national bank, except that the manager Nicholas Biddle would not ease credit enough to support Jackson's land speculator friends. And in any case, it wasn't the Federal Reserve and it was not privately owned. It was a government-private partnership. During the Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley administrations there was no Federal Reserve and there was no National Bank at all. They had exactly the unregulated economy many people want to see, with the predictable panics and economic instability. Not only did Kennedy not oppose the Federal Reserve, but EO 10 on which this conspiracy theory is based actually gave MORE power to the Federal Reserve because its intention ...
BELONGS TO WHOM THE WORLD? At the end the answer to why the world is so bad After 96 years the best kept secret in history was discovered : From December 23, 1913 , The Private Bank of the Federal Reserve ( FED ) seized U.S. and the vast majority of the world does not know. What will they and their predecessors ( Bank of America ) , declare wars , attacks ( twin towers attack in London, Madrid bombing ) , presidents (Jaime Roldos , Omar Torrijos, Kennedy , Warren Harding, McKinley was assassinated financed , James Garfield, etc. ) , dealing in weapons of mass destruction ( Carlyle , Bechtel, Lockheed Martin , Raytheon , General Dynamics, McDonnell Douglas , Boeing, Northrop Grumman ) . These bankers own the media (FOX , CNN , NBC , ABC , CBS , BBC , New York Times , Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, etc. ) use the strategy to distract the population with superficial TV programs , short-term technological products , reality shows and cartoons ridiculing family values. News of murders and crim ...
I know it's been awhile, but here is my updated list with the current democrats that have committed murders with guns they don't believe everyone else should have. We don't need to bad guns, WE NEED TO BAN DEMOCRATS!!! Starting in 1860’s - Present the Democrat group KKK has murdered well over 3,000 people since its inception to present. Starting in 1960 – Present there have been 908,965 known homicides in the United States. Starting in 1973 – Present Roe V. Wade, a Democrat abortion ruling, killed 52 million innocent rights-less babies. In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States, who later died from the wound. In 1865 a Democrat named John Wilkes Booth shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States. In 1901 a Leftist anarchist shot and killed President William McKinley In 1963 a Communist (democrat) named Lee Harvey Oswald shot and Killed President Kennedy in Texas. In 1963 a democrat and Kennedy supporter, Jack Ruby, shot Lee Harvey Os ...
2. Assassinating the president wasn't a federal crime in 1963 Despite the assassinations of three U.S. presidents -- Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield and William McKinley -- killing or attempting to harm a president wasn't a federal offense until 1965, two years after Kennedy's death. conspiracy ( 2 )

So apparently, someone (a Black man, I should add,) whose name isn't important enough for me to go find, opined at the Value Voters Summit today that the Affordable Care Act was the worst thing that had happened to America since slavery. I just thought I would compile a list, clearly non exhaustive (and as apolitical as can be) of things worse than the Affordable Care Act in the intervening years between the Emancipation Proclamation and now. 1.) The Battle of Gettysburg (1863) 2.) The assassination of Abraham Lincoln (1865) 3.) The assassination of James Garfield (1881) 4.) The Panic of 1893 5.) The Spanish American War (1898) 6.)

The original Palmer, built by Potter Palmer, burned down in the Great Chicago Fire 13 days after it opened in 1871. Potter Palmer promptly rebuilt the Palmer House Hotel, designed by architect John M. Van Osdel. Completed in 1875, it featured luxurious decor, oversized rooms, and sumptuous meals. The floor of its barber shop was reputedly tiled with silver dollars. Constructed mainly of iron and brick, the hotel was widely advertised as, "The World's Only Fire Proof Hotel." Famous guests included, for example, James Garfield, Grover Cleveland, Ulysses S. Grant, William Jennings Bryan, William McKinley, Mark Twain, L. Frank Baum, Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt and Eleonora Duse. ~
Good old Youtube. I'm watching an oldie that I never heard of - "20 Million Sweethearts" (1934). Not a great movie but one of those wonderful old chestnuts - Ginger Rogers, *** Powell and Pat O'Brien. Yeoman Warner Bros support - Allen Jenkins and Grant Mitchell (a descendent of James Garfield?). And the Mills Brothers! And Leo Forbstein directing the orchestra - he makes a cameo - look him up and see how many great movies he worked on.
Profiles of America's Mass-Murderers Note: There has been a noted increase in the following trends: Suicides, Failed Mental Health Treatments, Political Leftism, Anarchy, Cultural-Marxism / Social Justice / Self-Entitlement, Eco-terrorism ideologies Muslim/Moslem Jihadist/Extremist ideologies The following list demonstrates that a growing trend regarding the socio-cultural and political beliefs held by "outburst", "single-event", or "spree" mass-murderers in the United States in the 19th through 21st centuries are strangely consistent. The List: The 1865 Abraham Lincoln assassin(John Wilkes Booth) was an anarchist, racist, and a separatist Confederate Democrat (chose suicide by police / police set fire and burned him alive in a barn). The 1881 James Garfield assassin(Charles Guiteau) was a disgruntled social political activist and changed his party affiliation to Democrat (he asked for the death penalty). The 1901 William McKinley assassin(Leon Czolgosz) was an anarchist and a staunch political Marxist le ...

July is the month we celebrate America, and while you may think you know all about our history, you probably don't know these thirty tidbits. Read on to discover some little-known fun facts.  Our Presidents... 1. George Washington's teeth were never made of wood. Human and animal teeth, even ivory, but never wood.  2. Theodore Roosevelt was a speed reader with a photographic memory. He could read an entire page in the time it took someone else to read a sentence.  3. Gerald Ford was the only President whose two assassination attempts were made by women and the only one who modeled for Cosmopolitan. 4. As a young man, Andrew Johnson was indentured to a tailor. He also made all his own clothes.  5. Lyndon Johnson started out as was a teacher at a small school in Texas. 6. James Garfield was the only president who was a minister.  7. Harry S. Truman's middle initial isn't short for anything. His parents could not decide which grandfather to name him after ? Shippe or Solomon ? so the initial honors them ...
Masonry is practiced worldwide There are over 2 million Masons in North America and nearly 5 million worldwide. Freemasonry has no single spokesman Freemasonry is made up of many individuals in numerous organizations, all subordinate to the Grand Lodge within their jurisdiction (i.e. state). None of these members or organizations can speak for Freemasonry; that is the responsibility of each Grand Lodge within its jurisdiction. No Masonic body nor author, however respected, can usurp the authority of a Grand Lodge. Freemasonry is made up of many organizations Masonry has many groups, each with a special social, educational, or philanthropic focus. A man becomes a Mason in his local Lodge. Then he joins any of the following “Appendant Bodies”: the Scottish Rite, York Rite (which includes the Royal Arch Council and Knights Templar), Shrine, Grotto, Tall Cedars, etc. 14 U.S. Presidents were Masons: George Washington, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, ...

An anarchist and lawyer named Charles Guiteau shot James Garfield in the back with a five-barrel, .44-caliber pistol called a British Bulldog in 1881. He said he chose the gun because it would look good on a display in a museum someday. No one currently knows where the gun is. -Dusty
Working on my family history book, and if what I just found is correct, my kids are related to four US Presidents. I knew about two of them (Andrew Jackson through Season's Grandma's ancestors and James Garfield through my dad's great grandma) but I just found that another branch on my dad's side is ancestors to William Howard Taft and Herbert Hoover. Yes, I am dorky enough to think this is all pretty cool
One thing I realize with today's society is that even more than my generation, today's generation believes in the illuminati. Aka evil people who want the voices of those who love and care for humanity to be silenced. Do I believe it? Well it's a fact that the "illuminati" existed from 1776 til 1798. Here's a long list of those supposedly "silenced" by the illuminati: tupac Shakur, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, bill cooper (predicted 9/11), mohandas ghandi, yhitzak Rabin, Peter tosh, Indira Ghandi, Rajiv Ghandi, Diana princess of wales, JFK Jr, John f.

presents another little known fact of U.S history: Upon the untimely death of James Garfield the presidency was turned over to Chester A. Arthur. Chet was defeated by Grover Cleveland in the election of 1884. Later congress passed the Chester-Grover act in 1903. This law forever forbade anyone named Chester or Grover from running for president. It was later expanded to include the names Rutherford, Millard, Jimmy and ***

Every President That Has Opposed The Federal Reserve Has either Been Assassinated Or There Was A Documented Assassination Attempt On His Life. From Andrew Jackson, to Licoln, James Garfield, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan. Also and the Russian Czar Alexander II who was working with lincoln was assassinated. The Federal Reserve is no more federal than federal express. The people that run the Federal Reserve are not only in our country but all over the world. The Federal Reserve has never been audited, *** the president isn't allowed in the Federal Reserve, or the cia, fbi, congress, or any other government entity. So first the Federal Reserve must fall. Then we must systematically dissolve our government and re-build it. That is the only way will we will make it out of this mess that we have allowed.
THE JUPITER/ SATURN PRESIDENTIAL DEATH CYCLE Ever since the dawn of the U.S. presidency there has been a very interesting cycle happening that may have to do with both the planets and numerology. It seems that U.S. Presidents seem to enjoy an expiry date exactly twenty years after their election. This is the twenty-year cycle that culminates in a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, which is believed by astrologers to be partly responsible for the assassination, or death while in office, of every U.S. President since William Harrison. It was first noted in an old edition of Ripley's Believe It or Not, published in 1934, which noted the weirdly coincidental 20-year pattern of presidential deaths between 1840 and 1920/ This is the sequence of events that the conspiracy theory is based on -- * William Harrison dies in 1860 of pneumonia * Abraham Lincoln dies in 1880 of an assassination * James Garfield dies in 1900 of an assassination * William McKinley d dies from a assassination in 1920 * Warren Harding die ...

BHM FACT NO. 25: Pony Express rider George Monroe was also a highly skilled stagecoach driver for U.S. presidents Ulysses S. Grant, James Garfield and Rutherford B. Hayes. Monroe, who was known as "Knight of the Sierras," frequently navigated passengers through the curving Wanona Trail in the Yosemite Valley. As a result, Monroe Meadows in Yosemite National Park is named after him. Monroe and William Robinson are thought to be two of the first African Americans to work as Pony Express riders.
Did you guys know that Martin Van Buren's first language was Dutch? He learned English as a second language. Mind blown. I mentioned this to my London-raised colleague and he looked at me blankly for a minute. Then I recalled that there have been plenty of English monarchs whose first language was not English, either. I found out the Van Buren tidbit, by the way, while I was exploring the truth about James Garfield's ability to write Latin and Ancient Greek at the same time (Latin with his left, Greek with his right). Any other favorite linguistic presidential tidbits?
Written by my friend Paula, I usually have something to say or a phone call to make after her posts. This one simply got a Like. Mental illness. A cruel illness that plagues millions but stigmatized and mocked all too often. The recent tragedy of Newtown, Connecticut has once again thrust mental illness into the forefront as some boogey man. People marginalize the mentally ill but forget or simply don’t know that some of the greatest human beings were mentally ill. Many of our president suffered from depression. Calvin Coolidge, Franklin Pierce, Dwight Eisenhower, James Garfield, John Quincy Adams, James Madison, Rutherford Hayes, Woodrow Wilson. and our greatest president, Abraham Lincoln was bipolar. So was Winston Churchill who actually named his ‘depression’ cycle as his black dog Sir Isaac Newton was bipolar so was Ludwin Von Beethovan I applaud the celebrities who have come out with their mental illness which has helped awareness.

Alexander Graham Bell invented a metal detector to find the bullet in James Garfield. They looked in the wrong side of his body.
Benjamin Harrison, Chester Arthur, James Garfield, Rutherford Hayes, James Buchanan, Zachary Taylor, John Tyler, William Henry Harrison, Martin Van Buren, and Millard Fillmore, it's your day too!!!
Via Andrew Clark Presidents, from left: Herbert Hoover, William Howard Taft, Warren G. Harding, John Quincy Adams, Woodrow Wilson, Chester A. Arthur, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield. (Photo illustration by James Taylor; click on image for photo credits) Slowly, my fingers slid along the surface. "You know, that's made of Quincy granite," our tour guide said, as my hand went down the edge of John Adams's tomb. Across the room, my travel partner -- and future best man -- Bryan Buckler did the same to John Quincy Adams's. We were standing in a crypt a few stories underneath a church in downtown Quincy, Mass. This was the last stop on a one-week journey that led us up and down the mid-Atlantic visiting any sites related to the U.S. presidents. Or, more precisely, where they died. It all started with a phone call I made many months before. "Hey, why are you whispering?" Bryan asked. "Because I shouldn't be here," I replied. "Where are you?" "Guess." "I don't know, man." "I'm on the eighth ...
Who is your favorite U.S. President? Mine is Lincoln, but James Garfield is a close second. Garfield was a Trustee for Bethany College (which was founded by Alexander Campbell), historically associated with the church I serve. Unfortunately, my top two Presidents were both assassinated. How about you?
James Garfield was a gospel preacher, Civil War general,Congressman,Senator,& President of d United States.History will never be able 2 judge what kind of leader he might ve bin bcos he was shot by a crazed office seeker & died after only six months in office.However, d following story might be d standard one shld use in judging his conduct as President.Early Sunday morning,a group of party leaders came by d White House 2c him & discuss a bill they thought shld be passed by Congress.They were suprised when President Garfield said he had a very important appointment & wld talk 2 them later that afternoon "But Mr.President," one man asked, "What cld be more important than this?"Garfield arose & walked 2 d door, turned 2 look at d party leaders, & said, "Gentlemen, I ve an appointment at the Lord's table.' He then left with Mrs. Garfield & went to a Sunday morning Worship service.

Huntington's historical check collection is currently on display here in Central Ohio at the newly relocated Rocky Fork branch located at 380 S. Hamilton Road in Gahanna. The display features 16 checks signed by U.S. presidents. The collection is open to the public at this branch during normal business hours from now through Tuesday, February 19. The collection includes checks written by 16 U.S. presidents, including James Garfield, Ulysses S. Grant, Warren G.

Very Interesting, "In chronological order, the known left-handed presidents are: Herbert Hoover, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. Other presidents who may have been ambidextrous or left-handed include Ronald Reagan, James Garfield, and Thomas Jefferson. If Reagan is counted as left-handed, then the United States was controlled by a left-handed president for 20 years from 1981 to 2001, which is unusual considering how rare left-handed people are in the general population."
Today's lecture: The administrations and times of Rutherford Hayes, James Garfield, Chester Arthur...
I feel that beards have made such a comeback that the president should go back to having beards like Rutherford B Hayes and James Garfield!!
The 4th left-handed president in history, after James Garfield, Gerald Ford & George H.W. Bush
Inaugural Trivia Firsts and facts about presidential inaugurations by Christine Frantz and Beth Rowen _ NOTABLE INAUGURAL EVENTS George Washington's was the shortest inaugural address at 135 words. (1793) Thomas Jefferson was the only president to walk to and from his inaugural. He was also the first to be inaugurated at the Capitol. (1801) The first inaugural ball was held for James Madison. (1809) John Quincy Adams was the first president sworn in wearing long trousers. (1825) Franklin Pierce was the first president to affirm rather than swear the oath of office (1853).

Fun fact: the last president with facial hair was William Howard Taft in 1913. The last one with a full beard was James Garfield in 1881.
Presidents assassinated, all by Gunfire; James Garfield, William McKinley, Abraham Lincoln, John Kennedy. Attempted Assassinations of Presidents, all by gunfire; Andrew Jackson , Theodor Roosevelt-wounded, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford -twice, Ronald Reagan- wounded. Security provided for Our President and their family as well as all ex Presidents is essential. Robert Kennedy, on the verge of being Nominated for President was also assassinated, by gunfire!
Before bed, I was reading my boys' "Kids National Geographic," and I learned all sorts of unusual historical facts about U.S. Presidents. (They could have had THEIR OWN SIDESHOW all together!): -Grover Cleveland had an artificial jaw made of rubber -Gerald Ford was a male model -George H. W. Bush survived 2 plane crashes as a pilot in WWII -James Garfield could write with both of his hands at the same time -Martin Van Buren's nickname was "The Little Magician" -John Quincy Adams regularly swam in the Potomac River -Andrew Jackson lived with a bullet in his chest -John F. Kennedy liked to draw sailboats (even as an adult) -Thomas Jefferson once received a 1,235-pound block of cheese as a gift -Chester A. Arthur (?) owned 80 pairs of pants because he really liked pants :-)
Dear God, defeat H.J. Res 15 History of the 22nd Amendment: Historians point to George Washington's decision not to seek a third term as evidence that the founders saw a two-term limit as a bulwark against a monarchy, although his Farewell Address suggests that he was not seeking re-election because of his age. Thomas Jefferson also contributed to the convention of a two-term limit when he wrote in 1807, "if some termination to the services of the chief Magistrate be not fixed by the Constitution, or supplied by practice, his office, nominally four years, will in fact become for life."[1] Jefferson’s immediate successors, James Madison and James Monroe, adhered to the two-term principle as well. Prior to Franklin D. Roosevelt, few Presidents attempted to serve for more than two terms. Ulysses S. Grant sought a third term in 1880 after serving from 1869 to 1877, but narrowly lost his party's nomination to James Garfield. Grover Cleveland tried to serve a third term (and second consecutive term) in 1896, ...
An intro to the real powers that be, time to expose the crooks that run our banking system!!! Three US presidents that were assassinated: Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield and John F Kennedy had one thing in common: they all tried to print their own debt free currency beyond the control of central banking institutions. Here is what other US presidents had to say: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs." - Thomas Jefferson History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance. - James Madison “Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility, prosperity, and even wealth of the nati . ...

With a couple of exceptions, the women who've had affairs with Presidents aren't given much consideration as interesting people in their own right. I was reading about James Garfield's affair with Lucia Gilbert Calhoun (when he was in Congress) and the story mentioned that she was, at that time, a teenaged reporter for the New York Times. That was impressive enough for me to look up references to her subsequent life. I haven't found a full-fledged biography yet, but have found that she became the first woman on the editorial staff of the Times and have found some that she wrote. Did you know that a few years ago (after she rolled her SUV over in Ventura County on the 101), Monica Lewinsky moved to London & earned her master's degree at the London School of Economics? Some forget that at the time of the affair she was a White House intern, which in itself shows that she's an exceptional person.
One outline down, two to go. Too bad the one I finished was James Garfield who died early in office.
Omg Andrew Garfield would make the perfect James Potter
I am looking for the date when James Garfield stated "More than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brace, and pure it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in national legislature"

It was a presidential PARTY in the donation box tonight!!! Even James Garfield was there! I don't believe that I've ever seen a James Garfield coin before, so thanks for introducing me to President Garfield, kind donor. First there were Presidents Lincoln and Jefferson chirping along with the Chipmunks song. Then, President FDR soulfully sang along with Amazing Grace. Presidents Washington and Garfield swayed back and forth as they hummed to Silent Night. Treasury Secretary Hamilton rocked out to Wizards in Winter. Finally, I heard that President Jackson had a friendly competition with Sir Benjamin Franklin, each trying to out-do one another doing the Gangnam Style dance. (Ben Franklin won, hands down!) It was quite an entertaining night, I must say! A huge THANK YOU to whoever brought Benjamin to the party! He's always welcome here, but he rarely makes an appearance. For those of you keeping up with my nightly posts, this is the 2nd $100 donation that we've had this year!!! This was actually ...

As seen in the Republic By Larry Cox Special for The Republic | azcentral.com Wed Dec 12, 2012 11:25 AM Question: During the recent presidential election, I collected political buttons from both campaigns. I have decided that this might be an interesting hobby and have begun trying to track down memorabilia from previous races. I have two questions for you: What is your opinion of political items as a hobby, and is there a good price guide I can use? — Hank, Phoenix Answer: Collecting political memorabilia gets my vote as one of America’s most interesting hobbies. Although you have started your collection with pins, don’t overlook such items as textiles, jewelry, hats and clocks. Paper items include sheet music, posters, trade cards and even inaugural invitations and programs. The most desirable items are from significant campaigns, such as those of Franklin D. Roosevelt, William McKinley, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, James Garfield, Richard Nixon and Woodrow Wilson. Don’t overlook the losers ...
I think they meant Gerald Ford, Yul Brynner and James Garfield.

Executive Order 10 was signed. Six months later a U.S. President was assassinated. Who was this President? John F. Kennedy. What was the executive order for? The United States government to issue its own money free of the private banks that were responsible for an assassination attempt on Andrew Jackson, the assassination of James Garfield, likely responsible for the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and coincidentally probably responsible for JFK, too.
Here's some fun trivia for you. Did you know James Garfield was the FIRST left handed president?

They should make a James Garfield movie. Nice and short.
Just finished a great book titled "Destiny of the Republic". It is about the assassination of James Garfield. It is also about the great president he could have been had he lived and the lunatic that was convinced that God told him to kill the president. Had he been left alone Garfield surely would have lived, but, the egotistical doctor in charge of his care stuck his dirty fingers inside the bullet hole and also unsanitary probes. If you enjoy a good history book, this is for you.
What is freedom? Is it the bare privilege of not being chained? If this is all, then freedom is a bitter mockery, a cruel delusion. James Garfield
Today is Monday, Nov. 19, the 324th day of 2012. There are 42 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address as he dedicated a national cemetery at the site of the Civil War battlefield in Pennsylvania. On this date: In 1600, King Charles I of England was born in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. In 1794, the United States and Britain signed Jay's Treaty, which resolved some issues left over from the Revolutionary War. In 1831, the 20th president of the United States, James Garfield, was born in Orange Township, Ohio. In 1887, American poet Emma Lazarus, who'd written "The New Colossus" to help raise money for the Statue of Liberty's pedestal, died in New York at age 38. In 1919, the Senate rejected the Treaty of Versailles (vehr-SY') by a vote of 55 in favor, 39 against, short of the two-thirds majority needed for ratification. In 1942, during World War II, Russian forces launched their winter offensive against the Germans alon ...
Today in 1831, 20th President James Garfield was born. He would later be assassinated by a man who loved Mondays & hated lasagna.
The 20th President of the US, James Garfield, who was born this very day, in 1830, served only 200 days in office being assassinated before he finished his 7th month. One of his acheivements was getting Stanley Matthews appointed to the US Supreme Court as an Associate Justice. President Hayes couldn't do it, and Grafield acheived it by 1 vote, winning Senate confirmation for Matthews by a vote of 24-23. I don't know why Matthews was so controversial nor why Hayes and Garfield stuck by him so.

James Garfield’s birthday is today, November 19. Here is his entry from my book "Dreams of the Presidents," which is available from amazon.com or any bookstore. James Garfield’s Dream I’m draped like a side of beef over a polished copper rail. Graham Bell probes, and with each electric arc my legs twitch like a frog’s, my whole body dances: head, arms, eyes, tongue. I cry out to Lucretia, “Make him stop!” She takes my hand, and Bell turns off the current. A crane’s meat hook lifts me from the rail in a slow creaking dangle, but then I soar skyward, bouncing in a dark storm’s updraft, a struggling kite tethered by wire. A jagged bolt strikes deep inside me, finds the bullet. My body lights up, and I’m in my childhood bed in the log cabin, dark stain of blood soaking my quilt. Lucretia leans over me, closes my eyes, places a coin on each lid. James Garfield (1881) Garfield lingered for eighty days after he was shot in 1881. One bullet remained lodged in him, and Alexander Graham Bell trie ...
For all of us from Ohio today is special-it' the date on which James Garfield,the 20th President of the US,was born in 1830 in Cuyahoga Falls. He was assasinated by a deranged supporter who wanted a job in government. His Vice-President Chester Arthur succeeded him.

American Minute Sunday, November 18, 2012 Julius Caesar Watts, Jr., better know as J.C. Watts, was born NOVEMBER 18, 1957. A college and pro football player, he was a youth minister and, in 1994, was elected to the U.S. Congress, where he was chosen House Conference Chairman. In response to the President's 1997 State of the Union Address, Congressman J.C. Watts stated: "I was taught to respect everyone for the simple reason that we're all God's children. I was taught, in the words of Martin Luther King, to judge a man not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character. And I was taught that character is simply doing what's right when nobody's looking." Also on NOVEMBER 18, in the year 1886, President Chester Arthur died. The son of a Baptist minister from Ireland, Chester Arthur became an abolitionist lawyer, defending the rights of African Americans, and, during the Civil War, was Inspector General. Upon the assassination of James Garfield, President Chester Arthur wrote September 22, 1881 ...
Our founding fathers were against a national Bank. Andrew Jackson in 1832 withdrew federal deposits as part of his plan to kill the bank charter in 1836. Jackson survived an assassination attempt in 1834. Abraham Lincoln and Russian Czar Alexander II blocked National banks from taking hold. Both were assassinated. In 1881 James Garfield became president and he was dedicated to restoring the right of the federal government to issue money like Lincoln did in the Civil War and he was also assassinated. Years later John F. Kennedy opposed a private national bank and was assassinated in 1963. Ronald Reagan opposed a private national Bank and in 1981 an attempt was made to assassinate him. Coincidental, huh?
How many US Presidents (while in office) had one (or more) affairs? As we all know, when Hillary or Bill Clinton are mentioned, the most common memory is Bill's affair. So I am asking if anyone knows how many US President had an affair while in office? I actually know this answer but wanted to see if anyone else knows it. 5 years ago Report Abuse Additional Details Bob, you can doubt me that is your right, but I will guarantee you that the affairs of the Presidents of the US are not secret anymore! 5 years ago Bill Clinton, Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy, Warren Harding, Thomas Jefferson, James Garfield, and Franklin Roosevelt all had "proven" extramarital affairs! That is 7! There were "several" other Presidents that had proven affairs that was before they became Presidents. Also there are "several" sitting Presidents that were never proven to have had affairs, like George Bush Sr, and FDR. But while watching a History Channel report on Presidents that have had affairs, it seems that the 'majority' of Pres ...
The Ohio congressman [speaking of the president] told his friend he found it a "strange phenomenon in the world's history, when a second-rate Illinois lawyer is the instrument to utter words which shall form an epoch memorable in all future ages..." Not Boehner and Obama, James Garfield speaking of President Abraham Lincoln in Jan., 1863. Garfield refused to actively support him w/i the Republican party for re-election. Lincoln wasnt radical enough for Garfield on prosecution of the War For Southern Independence.
Today is Veterans’ Day, established in 1918 as Armistice Day to recognize the end of what we know as World War I. But a lot of other notable events were recorded on this date also. Two men who would become president were married on this date – Franklin Pierce in 1834 and James Garfield in 1858. Louisa May Alcott published her first story on this date in 1852. The Huntington Chapel at Green Lawn was dedicated on this date in 1902. And in 1978, the General Lee made its first jump – Oh those Duke boys.
James Garfield? “Name a US President not guilty of war crimes or massive domestic (as in this country) violence.”
or "James Garfield" where you think the movie's over but it lingers on for what it feels like a couple of months.
The Amazing Spider-Man was a bit of a disappointment. Terrible acting (yes, James Garfield was good in the Social Network because the writing and directing was brilliant), a silly villain, and Dennis Leary without cursing. I should have watched Magic Paul, I mean Mike. It was directed by Steven Soderbergh.
The only headgear missing here is a Tricorne from the Revolutionary War & a Kepi from the Civil War. "For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue."-James Garfield
Reading a James Garfield biography and listening to Fleetwood mac and Todd Rundgren records. Could not be happier. Nerd.
"As morning dawned, the election of 2012 looms as one of the closest in American history. At 2:00 a.m., only 240,000 votes out of more than 103 million cast separated "President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney. That is a margin of .3% and would rank the election as the third closest, falling behind the slim margins of the 1960 election between John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon and the 1880 election between James Garfield and Winfield S. Hancock. "The margin in the Electoral College is significant, but the popular vote reveals a deeply divided nation. The nation is divided politically, but that divide points to a division at the level of worldview. The 2012 election makes clear that Americans are divided over fundamental questions. Americans are divided into camps that define and see the world in fundamentally different terms. The election did not cause this division, it merely revealed it. This deep division at the level of worldview presents President Obama with a daunting political challenge, but a worldv ...

Franklin Roosevelt lost major use of both his legs to polio when he was in his thirties.

Frankiln Pierce ran over an old woman with his horse... DUI? Lincoln dreamed his own death. James Garfield juggled bowling pins for excersie. Theodore Roosevelt gave a campaign speech after being shot. Bullet lodged in his rib. William Taft go stuck in the White House bathtub. Woodrow Wilson had dislexia. Calvin Coolidge was adopted into the Sioux tribe. Nixon might have been *** Jimmy Carter shot his sister in the butt with a BB gun, was attacked by a rabbit, and reportedly saw a UFO.
Spent my lunch at the Portrait Gallery, looking at portraits of every US President (althought they still haven't displayed one for our sitting president, which is strange). It's fascinating to see the changes in portrait styles over the centuries (Kennedy is almost abstract), and in particular how Norman Rockwell commented on how his portrait of Nixon was over-flattering because he otherwise couldn't get a good read on his subject. My bipartisan favorite portraits, in no particular order: Jimmy Carter (superb likeness), James Garfield (statesmanly), Abraham Lincoln (as magnificent as the man), George Washington (the Landsdowne portrait - perfect "Father of our Country" rendering) and Dwight Eisenhower (who took up painting after sitting for his portrait). Okay, Art Appreciation class is now over.
My mother is listening to the View. Someone wondered if this was the closest election ever. I guess they have forgotten 2000. Bush won by 5 electoral votes. Actually closest is 1876 when Rutherford Hayes won by 1 electoral vote despite losing the popular vote. For popular vote it is the 1880 election that James Garfield has a .02% advantage over his opponent. The 1960 election between Kennedy and Nixon had a .17 difference. The View needs to fact check better.
Did You Know? Little Known Facts about US Presidential Elections Every US President since 1852 has been either a Republican or a Democrat. Incumbents have run in 31 of the 56 presidential elections in US history through 2012. The incumbents have won 20 times and lost 10 times. The Constitution did not originally contain presidential term limits. The 22nd Amendment, ratified in 1951, restricted presidents to a maximum of two terms. Four-time president Franklin D. Roosevelt (1932, 1936, 1940, 1944) was the only candidate to be elected more than twice. Presidential elections take place on Election Day- the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. However, the President does not take office until noon on January 20 of the following year. Eight US Presidents have died while in office. Four were assassinated (John F. Kennedy, William McKinley, James Garfield, and Abraham Lincoln) and four died of natural causes (Franklin D. Roosevelt, Warren G. Harding, Zachary Taylor, and William Henry Harrison). In the 200 ...
Only one President has been a clergy, Number 20, James Garfield, a Republican coincidentally. He served in both positions (not at the same time) for less than a year. Mitt is a Mormon Bishop. He also uses his religious background to soften his ‘hard man’ of business persona. Mitt wears Mormon sacred underpants and undershirts (I’ve never actually seen his underpants, but the shirt portion is clearly visible when he wears white business shirts), to demonstrate he is a devout Mormon. Perhaps this is no different that wearing a Christian cross necklace or a Star of David lapel pin or indeed a hijab. But would (should?) an American President so openly show his allegiance to one religion. Remember that separation of Church and State thing?

I've had it with this stuff about questioning Barak Obama's heritage. Did anyone ever get straight whether Mitt Romney was not Mexican? We all know his family came from there. Was Calvin Coolidge born in Canada? I think "keep Cool With Coolidge" was born across the Vermont border "on the other side," if you know what I mean. How about Chester Arthur? Was he a Canadian who was behind the assasination of James Garfield and became a foreign-born president by murder? I think it's all true and that Obama was born in Kenya and Mittens Romney was Mexican. Hey, we're all citizens of the world. Pass this on to Trumpie.

The sin of slavery is one of which it may be said that without the shedding of blood there is no remission. ~ James A. Garfield
Book rec: Candice Mallard's "Destiny of the Republic." James Garfield, his assassination, his terrible doctors and some great inventors.
I am voting for a president, not a pastor. I copied this from my friend James Edwin Cossey with his permission: Romney is a Mormon. No, I'm not happy about that, but think about this: One of America's all-time greatest presidents (in my opinion), Ronald Reagan belonged to no church at all until he joined Bel Air Presbyterian---AFTER he left the White House. Only nine presidents from the past have been Evangelicals in the strictest sense of the word: Harding, Truman, Carter, and Clinton were Baptists. McKi nley, Polk, and George W. Bush were Methodists. James Garfield and Lyndon Johnson were Christian Church, Disciples of Christ. Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, and Rutherford B. Hays...and now Barack Obama... all claimed no religious affiliation at all. Herbert Hoover and Richard Nixon were Quakers, who believe that God is "a light within" each of us and question the existence of Satan. John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Millard Fillmore, and William H. Taft were Unitarians ...
James A Garfield was a Radical Republican who did not support Lincoln re election of 1864

The answer is James Garfield. What's the question? — Corn Chips. If you know what I'm talking about, you win.
James A. Garfield (wait, that's not right) is slightly better at quipping and punning than Tobey Maguire.
James Abram Garfield (1831-1881) is the first president to ever talk on the phone.
Icelanders saw their debts cleared and their whole government resign, with no bloodshed. We owe it to ourselves and the world to do the same.
The lesson of history is rarely learned by the actors themselves. ~James A. Garfield
Garfield is deffo a lazy day favourite of mine
Just heard a pastor on the radio say, "I believe that God has blessed America and now it is time for the People to bless God". He went on to quote a Rev. James Garfield in 1830s that said that if we the People allow corruption to ruin our country through politics, then it is the Peoples fault. He finished his sermon with the fact that 30 million evangelical Christians did not vote in the last Presidential election for one reason or the other. If we the People would stop making excuses and start voting, we the People could vote those corrupt people out of politics and bless God. I thought this was forward thinking and I encourage those Christians to stop making excuses and bless God by voting.
Been reading a bio on James Garfield, 20th U.S. president. I'll tell ya, anyone who believes that down and dirty campaigning and sordid governance is something relatively new is ignoring U.S. history. Interesting tidbit tho - at that time (1880 election season) it was considered arrogant and undignified for presidential candidates to stump on their own behalf. Overall, Garfield sounds like a pretty good dude, even though he was a Republican. :)

If you are looking for some interesting history, try "Destiny of the Republic" by Candice Millard. A very interesting story of the life and times of James Garfield and his brief presidency. Another book is "1493" by Charles Mann. A fascinating look at the "Columbian Exchange" and how disease as well as crops changed things in the Americas and the world. For fiction / mysteries you can beat Agatha Christie but others to consider are authors Sue Grafton, Nevada Barr, Janet Evanovich, James Patterson and John Grisham.
Hey Willie Norman you told me to check these so here is your Information, I took your advice and here is what I found all this is verifiable on the internet: 1.) John Tyler, Born in Virginia in 1790 2.) Martin Van Buren: Van Buren was the first president born a citizen of the United States, as all previous presidents were born before the American Revolution. His great-great-great-grandfather Cornelis Maessen van Buren had come to the New World in 1631 from the small city of Buren, Dutch Republic, in present day Netherlands. He was of Dutch descent but he was not born there. 3.) James Garfield: He was born in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, in 1831. Fatherless at two, he later drove canal boat teams, somehow earning enough money for an education. He was graduated from Williams College in Massachusetts in 1856, and he returned to the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute (later Hiram College) in Ohio as a classics professor. Within a year he was made its president. Garfield was elected to the Ohio Senate in 1859 as a R ...
George Washington never lived in the White House. Capitals were Philadelphia, New York, then Washington, DC. James Garfield 1831-1881 first president to talk on phone. When he spoke to Alexander Graham Bell, who was 13 miles away, he said: "Please speak a little more slowly". 2nd assassinated president. 1881 Grover Cleveland 1837-1908 only president to be elected to two non consecutive terms. He was the 22nd and 24th president. Martin Van Buren was first president to be an American citizen. All previous presidents were born British subjects.
James Garfield became president because of a pair of socks...you never know what a lil irritation can less to... :)
Ambition by itself never gets anyone anywhere until it forms a partnership with hard work ~James Garfield -
Nugget of Wisdom: Courage "The men who succeed best in public life are those who take the risk of standing by their convictions." -James Garfield- with Nong Diopoy. What a coincidence. I've been thinking about making a decision. Thanks!

Today's President: James Garfield, who was shot despite winning the election on an anti-assassination platform
4 presidents had no written will: Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses Grant, James Garfield
Just finished a fascinating book on "America's other Lincoln," James Garfield. Garfield was elected president in 1880, fifteen years after Lincoln's assassination. Like Lincoln, he was a Republican, born in utter poverty, educated through a strong work ethic (and encouraged by his mother, who recognized her son's gift), had a sense of humor, was a man of principle, and a staunch abolitionist. He actively rejected calls by his party to run for president, saying that "ambition has ruined too many men. It shall not ruin me." His party nominated him anyway in 1880 and he won easily. Four months into his term, he was assassinated by a deranged office seeker. As with Lincoln, his death was followed by a period of chaos much of which the country might have been spared had he lived.
So you think you are living in a democracy, it is not a democracy! 15 presidents have been elected with LESS than 50% of the popular vote. John Quincy Adams had only 32% of the vote. The others with less than 50% are James Polk, Zachary Taylor, James Buchanan, Abe Lincoln, Rutherford Hayes, James Garfield, Grover Cleveland (2X), Benjamin Harrison, Woodrow Wilson (2X), Harry Truman, John Kennedy, Tricky *** Bill Clinton (2X), George W. They were put into office by the Electoral College. They are under no obligation to carry your wishes toward the election of the President. So your vote doesn't count, the Electoral College can and maybe have already decided who the next President will be!!! This in NOT A DEMOCRATIC ELECTION, YOUR VOTE IS A SMOKE SCREEN TO TRY AND SELL THE IDEA THAT YOU REALLY ARE INVOLVED IN CHOOSING A PRESIDENT.
What president was more religious than Romney? Would you believe my 5th cousin James Garfield? He was a member of the Disciples of Christ and the only U.S. president who had been a pastor. Alas, it didn't armor-plate him as he was assassinated four months into his term in 1881.
So Rebecca Garfield is our great grandmother Who comes from the same Edward Garfield who is the gggreat grandfather of President James Garfield, He would be some kind of cousin to us. Her third husband was Isaac Mixer, the other husbands died.
Props to Kent State for the win today and- AND Kent had a shout out on Pawn Stars- A guy on Pawn Stars was selling a letter signed by James Garfield whilst wearing a Kent State shirt- Kent State is EVERYWHERE! Props to Kent State and my hometown! Flashes rule!
What a thought: "traveling from town to town and asking for votes was considered undignified for a presidential candidate." Abraham Lincoln did not give a single speech on his behalf during either of his campaigns nor did James Garfield when he ran for president. Quote by Candice Millard from her book Destiny of the Republic, which is a very interesting read.
Happy Birthday Chester Alan Arthur! The 21st U.S. president and successor to James Garfield was born this day. A...
On this day in 1829, future President Chester Alan Arthur is born in North Fairfield, Vermont. The precocious and bright young Arthur wanted to become a lawyer and enrolled in Union College in New York at the age of 15. He later supported himself by teaching school while he earned his law degree. In 1848, he went to work as a lawyer in New York City. During the Civil War he served as quartermaster general for the state of New York, overseeing the purchase of supplies for the state's military depots. His political career began when Ulysses S. Grant appointed him as port collector for New York's harbors in 1871. Arthur's penchant for staffing his office with Republican political cronies resulted in his firing by President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1878. After being chosen as James Garfield's vice-presidential running mate in 1880, Arthur decided to straighten up his act and denounced the political patronage system. The campaign was successful.
Abe Lincoln referenced in the debate. Why isn't James Garfield or Rutherford Hays referenced?
Interesting fact...''Until Ronald Reagan (who was elected in 1980) all presidents who were elected in a year that ended in zero died or were assassinated while in office, these include Abraham Lincoln (1860), James Garfield (1880), William McKinley (1900), Warren G. Harding (1920), Franklin Roosevelt (1940), and John F. Kennedy (1960).''
Interesting history piece from Slate on the most (and least) religious US presidents. Check it out. Note: I've wondered what would have happened if James Garfield hadn't been assassinated six months into his term by a lunatic. Garfield was young, bright, energetic, and modern-minded. He was succeeded by Chester Arthur, who surprised everyone by being relatively competent and by not stealing everything that wasn't nailed down. But Garfield very well might have made an excellent President.
Actually doing a live show at halloween party. Me & cohost will be James Garfield & Chester A. Arthur.
