    It’s 1911, convinced his entry to the race splits the party, Roosevelt decides against running for President. He campaigns vigorously for Taft, who easily wins his second term. Woodrow Wilson never becomes President. How does this rewrite the 20th Century and today?

    Update (June 16th, 2010 10:20 am): A press assistant at the Wilson Center confirmed this morning that what I wrote below is correct. The ceremonial dinner, honoring Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, along with a Turkish business tycoon, is scheduled for Thursday evening, at the Four Seasons, in Istanbul. What follows is my post originally written Wednesday night:Turkey’s leaders have made a lot of news lately, and it’s been ugly: holding hands with Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, blessing the lead role of the terror-linked Turkish IHH foundation in last month’s Gaza terror flotilla, and voting last week against new sanctions on Iran in...

September 7, 2017 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. Almost a century ago, President Woodrow Wilson watched approvingly as the title card appeared on the screen, "The former enemies of North and South are united again in defense of their Aryan birthright." Birth of a Nation was the first movie to play inside the White House. Many...
  • Did Woodrow Wilson read James Madison's debate notes?

    06/24/2017 9:22:13 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 12 replies
    This is fully conjecture, but I'm convinced that the answer is yes. During the time in which Wilson was inventing the concept of the "living and breathing constitution", Wilson made the following observations: (Constitutional Government, page 55) The government of the United States was constructed upon the Whig theory of political dynamics, which was a sort of unconscious copy of the Newtonian theory of the universe [see: Newtonian government]. In our own day, whenever we discuss the structure or development of anything, whether in nature or in society, we consciously or unconsciously follow Darwin; but before Darwin, they followed Newton....

  • Princeton Pressured to Rename School Honoring ‘White Supremacist’ President Woodrow Wilson

    Princeton is under renewed pressure to rename an institution honoring President Woodrow Wilson after activists branded him a “white supremacist”. Campus activists made another attempt to scrub Wilson’s name from the university’s School of Public and International Affairs (pictured above) over his views on race. He agreed to re-segregate large parts of the federal government, expressed sympathy for the Ku Klux Klan and regularly worked to exclude or dissuade black people from public life. As a Vox explainer notes, although the 1910s had very different racial norms to today, Wilson’s attitude was exceptional even then. However, despite the pressure, Princeton...

    American Thinker ^ | September 9, 2016 | Mike Konrad
    Joseph Patrick Tumulty is a name that every American should know; and yet so few do. He may have helped run the country for the last two years of Woodrow Wilson's Administration. This is what a Hillary Clinton presidency portends. Joseph Tumulty was born in New Jersey in 1879. His parents were middle class ethnic Irish, and he became a lawyer, and later a state representative. However, Tumulty was an accomplished wheeler-dealer, and Woodrow Wilson called upon his services when he started his political climb from Princeton University academic to Governor of New Jersey and then President. Tumulty was Wilson's...

    Judging from the outcome of recent federal court cases involving Voter ID, one could be forgiven for believing two things. First, there is an unqualified right to vote. Second, the more voting by more people on more matters, the better. Voting itself would appear to be an unalienable right. Ever expanding democracy has long been the Progressive’s means to their fuzzy, yet dangerous social justice ends. Our national experience has shown that the explosion of the democratic element since the direct election of senators, voting by women, repeal of Jim Crow, abolition of poll taxes, lowering the voting age to...

    Carol Swain, a professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University, is one of the stars of Dinesh D’Souza's new movie, :Hillary’s America," which examined in detail the historical racism of the Democratic Party. It's a story that hasn't been told by reporters from the liberal media who keep repeating the mantra that Democrats represent minorities, the poor, the downtrodden and the vulnerable. The movie highlights the fact that Democratic President Woodrow Wilson attended a screening of the pro-KKK film, "The Birth of a Nation," in the White House itself. If you don’t want to believe D’Souza's facts, consider...

    After a war no one wanted and eight years of the devious and racially divisive Democrat Woodrow Wilson, America was ready for a change and “return to normalcy.” Nevertheless, it took until the tenth ballot at their 1920 nominating convention for Republicans to select Calvin Coolidge as their presidential candidate even though few thought could win. But the plain speaking Coolidge did win and went to work immediately to fix the Democrat mess that had put America in a deep recession that caused the unemployment rate to hit 15%. In just six months of saying ‘No” to new spending and...

    On Tuesday evening, amid much splendor and spectacle, the president of the United States will be welcomed by a joint session of Congress, there to be cheered and applauded like a homecoming conqueror, and, before an audience of lawmakers, diplomats, military officers, and dignitaries, to deliver his State of the Union oration in a live nationwide broadcast.It is the most preposterous and gaudy ritual in American political life. Thomas Jefferson will be turning in his grave.Like Moses, Jefferson was burdened with a speech impediment and disliked public speaking. Unlike the Hebrew lawgiver, Jefferson wasn't compelled by Heaven to preach to...

    Full title: Would progressive ideologues freak out if an insurance company claimed that policies were living and breathing documents? At the time I signed my policy. That's the deal. But what if the insurance company had a panel of nine experts wearing black robes that actually said that the policy was a little different than that, just because I signed my policy 5 years ago? Hey, things have changed. We need to evolve with the times. All that insurance providers ask or desire is permission - in an era when "development," "evolution," is the scientific word - to interpret this...

    While Wilson has a complicated legacy that includes genuine accomplishments, his record in the District is unambiguously negative. In a diverse area with a rich black history, we should not have the name of an unabashed white supremacist atop one of the District’s few public high schools. When Wilson arrived in 1913, he found that the District offered black people more opportunities than anywhere else in the South. It may not have been “the colored man’s paradise,” as some contemporaries claimed, but the District had the nation’s largest black community — about 95,000 people, nearly 30 percent of the city’s...

    There is something deliciously ironic about academic and media elites rethinking Woodrow Wilson, probably the president they have lionized most until the current occupant of the White House took office. It is an irony that Mr. Wilson himself would most likely not appreciate, and not just because he didn't appreciate many ironies. My predecessor at Accuracy in Academia, Dan Flynn, summed up the turnaround nicely in an article he wrote for the American Spectator recently. "The New York Times calls America's 28th president 'an unapologetic racist whose administration rolled back the gains that African-Americans achieved just after the Civil War,...

    He re-segregated the federal workforce after gains made in the Reconstruction era, and removed black officials. This was no accident. In his 1901 book, “A History of the American People,” he extolled the Ku Klux Klan for helping “the white men of the South” to rid themselves of “the intolerable burden of governments sustained by the votes of ignorant Negroes.” But here’s the thing: Racism isn’t the only aspect of Wilson’s character and career that should give Princeton pause about honoring him. Most notably, President Wilson led the United States into an unnecessary and disastrous war. World War I has...

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. Former Democratic President Woodrow Wilson may be purged from his alma mater, Princeton University. The old “Schoolmaster of Politics”, as he was known for his academic background at Cornell, Bryn Mawr, Wesleyan and finally president of Princeton U, has been thrown under the bus by its current president for being a politically incorrect progressive. Also known as a plain old racist. Woody was indeed a racist. Though even on his worst day he was still about 40% less racist than...

    Hoover Institution ^ | 12/01/2015 | by Richard A. Epstein
    Back in 2008, the Princeton Alumni Weekly published the results of a panel deliberation ranking the university's most influential alumni. At the top of the list was James Madison (class of 1771) and close behind him, in third place, was Woodrow Wilson (class of 1879), who was Princeton's president from 1902 to 1910. He left the university to enter politics first as governor of New Jersey between 1911 and 1913 and then as President of the United States from 1913 to 1921. By all accounts, his presidency at Princeton transformed the school from a college for playboys into the...

    Why did it take so long? I don't know. But it's happened. Students at Princeton University have discovered that the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs on their campus is named after … well … after Woodrow Wilson. Why is that important? Because, say the students, Wilson was a racist. And he wasn't just a garden variety racist. He was the most racist US President of the 20th century. Maybe the most racist president ever. In an editorial in the New York Times by the grandson of a victim of Wilson's purge of blacks from all management responsibilities...
