The Truth About September 11th

I am President John Tyler…

I became president after the assassination of William Harrison. My whole administration walked out on me on September 11th. All except Daniel Webster who was settling the Webster-Ashburton Treaty with the Barring Brothers Bank which were bribing him to create the Third National Bank of the united States. I refused to make the bank and my administration walked out on me on the anniversary of Alexander Hamilton becoming the first Secretary of the Treasury and creating the First National on September 11th. The first and second Banks had their charters expire because they were dominated by English bankers like Baring Brother’s Bank. September 11th has always been an important date in American economic history and still is. Check it out for yourself.

Independent Treasury?

President James Knox Polk photo

I suffered typhoid poisoning as Speaker of the House defending Andrew Jackson’s Bank War after he visited Stephen White of Salem. White was the banker behind Senator Daniel Webster who was Secretary of State for President Harrison who died one month into office of typhoid. In my presidency I was against a third national bank and created an Independent Treasury governed by Congress. For this I will be assassinated 3 months after leaving the presidency by typhoid by Daniel Webster and Henry Clay. A doctor who was at the death of Harrison of typhoid was on the river boat where I caught my own dose.

I am President Zachary Taylor

I lasted 16 Months in Office

President Taylor Murdered?

You don’t know me. It is hard to be a famous president when you were assassinated 16 months into your presidency. Even worse when most people believe you ate a combination of strawberries, milk, and ice cream and died. My name is President Zachary Taylor and I was assassinated by typhoid poisoning by Daniel Webster and Henry Clay for my reluctance for making a third national bank. Plus I was not the first they got away with…

I am Henry Clay

I was one of the three most powerful senators, but you don’t remember me

I first came to Salem to advise a rope maker on the advantages of hemp. Once in town I met John Quincy Adams and became his Secretary of State. I also met Daniel Webster who was one of the Triumphant of senators with me. We plotted and got away with assassinating 3 presidents trying to make the third national bank.

Tecumseh’s Curse

What is it?

Portrait of Tecumseh

I’m Tecumseh. I led the successful defeat of the Americans at the Battle of Detroit for the Natives of the Northwest Territory during the War of 1812. President William Harrison was in charge of the forces that had killed me and he was the first to befall my curse. It is said I had affected all presidents who died in office from my curse. Reagan was the last to suffer it and the only to survive. His attempted assassin was confined to Saint Elizabeth up to this year. The doctor who helped kill President Harrison built St. Elizabeth.

Black Dan; Daniel Webster

Sam the Eagle you Say…

Daniel Webster a character in Sub Rosa.

Daniel Webster. His son marries Stephen White’s daughter and his brother-in-law marries the other daughter. Webster prosecuted innocent men for Stephen White to get away with murdering his uncle. The two would go on to assassinate President Harrison.

Not only is he the basis for the Muppets Sam the Eagle, he was one of the three most powerful senators in America leading up to the Civil War. He was controlled by Stephen White who was the murderer in the real life murder the game Clue is based on.

These two, along with Henry Clay, planned the assassination of President William Harrison in attempts to restore a new national bank. Stephen White lived on the Salem Common. Here Webster would visit and President Andrew Jackson would be expelled for not renewing the Second Bank of the United States Charter.

Old Bet the Stoned Elephant

Something from the Devil?

Stoned Elephant departing boat at NYC

Jacob Crowninshield a representative in Congress from Salem purchased the first elephant to be shipped to America. On the journey there was a threat that the elephant would drink all of the water, so they gave all the beer to her and sailors got the water. By the time she got to NYC she was pink from being drunk so long; hence we have the term pink elephants.

The Stoned Elephant toured America and would drink a beer for a nickel and a keg for a dime. Later she was rescued by Hachaliah Bailey of Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Circus and renamed Old Bet who became his star attraction. Then when traveling in Maine many years later, a farmer thought she was something from the devil and shot her.

Jacob came to a sticky end too; he would spit up blood on the Congress floor and die five days afterward. After a bloody campaign Joseph Story who was the Crowninshield personal lawyer would beat out Benjamin Crowninshield for the Congress seat who was on his brother-in-law Stephen White’s payroll. Story would later move on to become the Superior Court Justice who has shaped our interpretation the most of the Constitution and White would go on to become the man behind the assassination of President William Harrison.
