William Howard Taft,
President of the United States, aRepublican and team player to the European Royal and Elite. Hisdomestic agenda involved busting up Trusts designed to protectfamily fortunes and family businesses. He modified the civilservice agencies to promote employee loyalty toward the FederalGovernment and promoted stricter Federal controls over thePostal System. He sponsored the 16
amendment to theConstitution which was for the adoption of the Federal Income Tax, which was not a popular issue in the Republic. He becameso involved in that matter that he completely let America’sinvolvement in the Mexican Revolution slide right by him.Historians would later write that Taft showed great restraint butthe fact is that the 16
amendment was more important to theRoyal and Elite, than a poorly finance Civil conflict!When the 16
Amendment was submitted to the Republic forratification, not one State Government ratified it and so President Taft and his cabinet devised a ruse, which involved the Secretaryof the Congress. The Secretary concealed the rejection letters inthe basement of the Library of Congress and reported to theCongress and National Press that a sufficient number of Stateshad ratified the amendment. In reward for his administration, Taft was awarded a lifetime position on the United StatesSupreme Court.
