Electoral College: Becoming and Staying the President of the United States
 
14:38
PowerPoint available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This video teaches students about becoming and to a certain extent staying the President of the United States. Students will once again review the Constitutional requirements of becoming the president with a close look on the “natural born” requirement. There is then an in-depth look at how the Electoral College works. A breakdown of how the Electoral College gets its 538 votes and how a majority of 270 votes is required. The student will be introduced to the idea that they are actually voting for “electors” and not the President, and the electoral process of casting votes. There is also a discussion of why the Electoral College was put in place by the framers of the Constitution. Students will learn about the 12th Amendment as viewed by the Presidential Election of 1800, as well as the Bush v. Gore election about how a candidate can will the popular vote but loose the electoral vote. Also covered is what happens when no candidate receives a majority of the Electoral College votes, the 25th Amendment and Presidential Succession, and the Impeachment process. Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class.

Election Basics: Crash Course Government and Politics #36
 
08:46
This week Craig is going to give you a broad overview of elections in the United States. So as you may have noticed, there are kind of a lot of people in the U.S, and holding individual issues up to a public vote doesn't seem particularly plausible. So to deal with this complexity, we vote for people, not policies, that represent our best interests. But as you'll see, this process was not thoroughly addressed in the Constitution, so there have been a number of amendments and laws at the state level implemented to create the election system we all know and (maybe) love today.

Impact of New Election Rules in 2016
 
01:23:06
The rules of the electoral game have a major impact on the way election are conducted. As we look to the 2016 presidential election, what rules are set in stone - and which ones may change. Will current Electoral College rules be changed to the National Popular Vote plan for president? Will Michigan and Pennsylvania change their winner-take-all voting rules to rules dividing electoral votes? How might the major parties change the nomination schedule and rules affecting caucuses, primaries and their conventions? What will be the impact of changes in voting laws in key swing states? Forum speakers included Victoria Bassetti, Hendrik Hertzberg, Andrea Levien, Pat Rosenstiel, and Robert Richie. The discussion was moderated by Krist Novoselic, Chairman of the Board at FairVote.

Super PACS and the Presidential Election
 
03:06
http://underground.net for more info. ------- And thanks to a gigantic loop hole these special interests can spend unlimited amounts without disclosing where the money's coming from. This isn't just a threat to democrats, this is a threat to our democracy. All these attack ads. You don't know. That's not just a threat to democrats, that's a threat to our democracy. But this week, the United States Supreme Court handed a huge victory to the special interests and their lobbyists. This ruling strikes at our democracy itself. This is nothing less than a vote to allow corporate and special interest takeovers of our elections. This is damaging to our democracy. Today, the Obama re-election campaign told its financial contributors that they should feel free to contribute to so-called Super PACS Wait a minute.. didn't he just say..? Hey guys, Charles Como back with another political minute. Start the 1 minute clock. This past week, Obama decided to officially embrace a Super PAC to help him get elected when he had previously stated that Super PACS where a threat to democracy. Has Obama gone to the dark side you aks? In a way.. yes.. because it's the ONLY way he'll get elected. Period. The person who spends the most money in an election wins nine times out of ten Until recently, there were limits on how much money a company or person could give to a politician for fear of corrupting that politician. Which makes sense, right? Well.. the Supreme Court felt that there is no proof that politicians can be corrupted by money (yeah right!). In their Citizens United ruling, they opened the floodgates for unlimited contributions by individuals and corporations and even allowed the contributors to remain hidden! Whereas Obama's average contribution was $55 from individuals over half of all the money that's gone to the top Super PACS was given by just 22 donors each giving over a half a million dollars apiece. That means that the next president could be bought and paid for by just 22 wealthy individuals. Until the law is reversed, Obama has no choice but to succumb to the dark side to get elected. Hello, phone call for you... Oh, who is it? It's Obama's Super PAC. Oh, OK thanks! Hold on a second. Is all this money being thrown into the election a good thing for democracy or is it a bad thing? What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below. And don't forget to subscribe to be notified of the next political minute. Hello Priorities USA can you please tell Obama I've got a crisp. brand new $20 bill here with his name written all over it! I was wondering what kind of influence that will buy me in Washington? No.. no no, not ah 20 million.. oh $20 dollars.. Oh... Nada? Zip? Oh... maybe I can bump it to up to 50 dollars.. maybe? Hello? Hello?

Reconstruction and 1876: Crash Course US History #22
 
13:00
In which John Green teaches you about Reconstruction. After the divisive, destructive Civil War, Abraham Lincoln had a plan to reconcile the country and make it whole again. Then he got shot, Andrew Johnson took over, and the disagreements between Johnson and Congress ensured that Reconstruction would fail. The election of 1876 made the whole thing even more of a mess, and the country called it off, leaving the nation still very divided. John will talk about the gains made by African-Americans in the years after the Civil War, and how they lost those gains almost immediately when Reconstruction stopped. You'll learn about the Freedman's Bureau, the 14th and 15th amendments, and the disastrous election of 1876. John will explore the goals of Reconstruction, the successes and ultimate failure, and why his alma mater Kenyon College is better than Raoul's alma mater NYU.

Where US Politics Came From: Crash Course US History #9
 
13:57
In which John Green teaches you where American politicians come from. In the beginning, soon after the US constitution was adopted, politics were pretty non-existent. George Washington was elected president with no opposition, everything was new and exciting, and everyone just got along. For several months. Then the contentious debate about the nature of the United States began, and it continues to this day. Washington and his lackey/handler Alexander Hamilton pursued an elitist program of federalism. They attempted to strengthen the central government, create a strong nation-state, and leave less of the governance to the states, They wanted to create debt, encourage manufacturing, and really modernize the new nation/ The opposition, creatively known as the anti-federalists, wanted to build some kind of agrarian pseudo-paradise where every (white) man could have his own farm, and live a free, self-reliant life. The founding father who epitomized this view was Thomas Jefferson. By the time Adams became president, the anti-federalists had gotten the memo about how alienating a name like anti-federalist can be. It's so much more appealing to voters if your party is for something rather than being defined by what you're against, you know? In any case, Jefferson and his acolytes changed their name to the Democratic-Republican Party, which covered a lot of bases, and proceeded to protest nearly everything Adams did. Lest you think this week is all boring politics,you'll be thrilled to hear this episode has a Whiskey Rebellion, a Quasi-War, anti-French sentiment, some controversial treaties, and something called the XYZ Affair, which sounds very exciting. Learn all about it this week with John Green. Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. Much of America's politics came from debates between democratic republican Thomas Jefferson and federalist Alexander Hamilton: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/alexander-hamilton While Jefferson would go on to become president, Hamilton heavily influenced President George Washington who set many American political ideals in his farewell address that Hamilton helped craft: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/washington-s-farewell-address Follow us! http://www.twitter.com/thecrashcourse http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen http://www.twitter.com/crashcoursestan http://www.twitter.com/raoulmeyer http://www.twitter.com/saysdanica http://www.twitter.com/thoughtbubbler Turn on the captions.

Thomas Jefferson & His Democracy: Crash Course US History #10
 
13:19
In which John Green teaches you about founding father and third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson is a somewhat controversial figure in American history, largely because he, like pretty much all humans, was a big bundle of contradictions. Jefferson was a slave-owner who couldn't decide if he liked slavery. He advocated for small government, but expanded federal power more than either of his presidential predecessor. He also idealized the independent farmer and demonized manufacturing, but put policies in place that would expand industrial production in the US. Controversy may ensue as we try to deviate a bit from the standard hagiography/slander story that usually told about old TJ. John explores Jefferson's election, his policies, and some of the new nation's (literally and figuratively) formative events that took place during Jefferson's presidency. In addition to all this, Napoleon drops in to sell Louisiana, John Marshall sets the course of the Supreme Court, and John Adams gets called a tiny tyrant. Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. Thomas Jefferson is remembered as the Founding Father responsible for saying all men are created equal in The Declaration of Independence: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/the-declaration-of-independence Jefferson didn't always practice what he preached though, as seen in his mixed views on American Indians: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/excerpts-from-thomas-jefferson-s-writings-on-american-indians Follow us! http://www.twitter.com/thecrashcourse http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen http://www.twitter.com/crashcoursestan http://www.twitter.com/raoulmeyer http://www.twitter.com/thoughtbubbler http://www.twitter.com/saysdanica Like us! http://www.facebook.com/youtubecrashcourse Support CrashCourse on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crashcourse

French presidential election: Le Pen seen to win first round of votes?
 
13:41
France goes to the polls in eight weeks, with far right leader Marine Le Pen as the survey frontrunner. The country will elect a new president this year with the first round of voting on April 23. Two weeks later, the second round of votes will determine the ultimate winner of the election. But with all three top candidates hounded by scandals, some say it is one of the most unpredictable elections in French history. Is France's election another black swan event? We make sense of the possible French vote with Professor Christian Lequesne from Sciences Po in Paris and the Center for International Studies and Research and Francois Godement from the European Council on Foreign Relations in Paris.

Liberals Triggered After Receiving Presidential Alert, But It Was Obama Who Authorized It
 
02:46
A test notification was sent to phones across the United States on Wednesday. With a loud and unique tone, the test caught many Americans off-guard. What stuck out the most were two words at the top: Presidential Alert. Liberals were furious. Michael Moore said the alert was part of President Donald Trump’s sinister plan to “justify the end of democracy as we know it.” Dan Pfeiffer, a CNN contributor, even pulled the tired “what if Obama did it” line in an attempt to insult conservative media. Not only does Trump’s very existence trigger them, but they now have to live with the fact that Trump effectively has them on speed dial. To understand the hypocrisy of their outrage, we need to step back to the year 2016. And if there’s one thing liberals loved in 2016, it was Barack Obama. They didn’t make a peep as he aggressively strengthened his own powers and privileges during his two terms as president. Under Obama, the most powerful office in the world got much, much stronger. So it’s easy to see why the outcome of the 2016 election hit the left like a ton of bricks. Liberals’ worst fear had been realized: Donald Trump won the Oval Office. Within weeks, panic and hyperbole took over. Headlines compared the president-elect to Adolf Hitler. Many predicted a recession. Some even hinted at civil war. One from New York Magazine specifically promised something more Trump-like: “Starting January 20, Donald Trump Can Send Unblockable Mass Text Messages to the Entire Nation.” With the tone of that headline, you’d be forgiven for thinking Trump was planning to text “CNN is fake news” to nearly 330 million Americans. And although Trump did use the system, it wasn’t his idea to begin with. In fact, he didn’t even sign it into law. The presidential alert is just another one of Obama’s many powers he granted to himself. Signed in 2016, the law gives the president the ability to send unblockable cellphone alerts about public safety emergencies, according to Reuters. The lesson here, which is bound to go over the collective heads of liberals everywhere, is that the government will eventually be run by someone you dislike. This is the nature of a republic, and a very sobering check to keep the power of government limited. With all the extra powers Obama built into the presidency, Trump is sure to deliver a few more of those lessons before his time is up. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: http://bit.ly/2Kn8KeN ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: http://bit.ly/2LPVNjq ◆ Email: info.khung@gmail.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)

Masha Gessen on Donald Trump’s Lessons in American Democracy
 
01:00:19
Acclaimed New York-based journalist Masha Gessen believes US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is ‘a thoroughly American creation that poses an existential threat to American democracy’. At this Wheeler Centre talk in Bendigo, she’ll discuss the historical, economic and cultural circumstances that have enabled the ascendance of this utterly unorthodox political figure. For Gessen, the story of Trump’s rise begins with September 11 and the ensuing siege mentality that gripped the United States. At Bendigo’s Capital Theatre, she’ll trace the enduring effects of those events on the American psyche, including the projection of dangerous leader-saviour narratives on the office of President. She’ll also discuss the social upheaval caused by the Global Financial Crisis and Trump’s masterful manipulation of weaknesses in the American media. ‘Whatever the outcome of the November election, the effect of Trump's attacks on the institutions and customs of American democracy will last and reverberate,’ Gessen said earlier this year. Join her in Bendigo for a discussion of Trump's past and of the implications of a Trump presidency. Presented in partnership with Bendigo Writers’ Festival and La Trobe University.

The Constitution, the Articles, and Federalism: Crash Course US History #8

In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

Donald Trump's success reveals a frightening weakness in American democracy
 
12:18
Ezra Klein on the lesson of the 2016 presidential campaign: "A republic, if you can keep it." Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Donald Trump’s nearness to the presidency rests on two separate accomplishments — or, if you prefer, two separate institutional failures — that are often conflated. The first is his victory in the Republican Party’s presidential primaries. The second is his consolidation of elite Republicans, and of the Republican-leaning electorate. But it's important to zoom out, and make a structural analysis of what allowed these things to happen. And believe it or not, that’s where things get scary. For more on this weak-point in American democracy, read Ezra's longer version of this piece at Vox.com: http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2016/11/7/13532178/donald-trump-american-democracy-weakness Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.
