America’s First President of the United States in Congress Assembled Was Black

When we think of the President of the United States, many people do not realize that we are actually referring to presidents elected under the U.S. Constitution. Everybody knows that the first president in that sense was George Washington. But in fact the Articles of Confederation, the predecessor to the Constitution, also called for a president- albeit one with greatly diminished powers. Eight men were appointed to serve one year terms as president under the Articles of Confederation. In November 1781, John Hanson became the first President of the United States in Congress Assembled, under the Articles of Confederation.

Many people have argued that John Hanson, and not George Washington, was the first President of the United States, but this is not quite true. Under the Articles of Confederation, the United States had no executive branch. The President of Congress was a ceremonial position within the Confederation Congress. Although the office required Hanson to deal with correspondence and sign official documents, it wasn’t the sort of work that any President of the United States under the Constitution would have done.

Hanson didn’t really enjoy his job either, and found the work tedious and wished to resign. Unfortunately, the Articles of Confederation hadn’t accounted for how succession worked and his departure would have left Congress without a President. So, because he loved his country, and out of a sense of duty, he remained in office.Statue of John Hanson in the United States Capitol Building

While there, he served from November 5, 1781 until November 3, 1782, he was able to remove all foreign troops from American lands, as well as their flags. He also introduced the Treasury Department, the first Secretary of War, and the first Foreign Affairs Department. He led the flight to guarantee the statehood of the Western Territories beyond the Appalachian Mountains that had been controlled by some of the original thirteen colonies.

What’s probably most interesting is that Hanson is also responsible for establishing Thanksgiving Day as the fourth Thursday in November.

That John Hanson was white. There was another J.H who was a freed slave and became a politician in Liberia.

Wrongful headline of a wrongful article. Why? Because neither this page NOR the linked full article on the jew-lying site claims Hanson was black or a Moor. But in your comment, you say he was a Moor. Your duty — YES, I am telling you YOUR duty — is to give verifiable evidence, especially for such an outrageous claim.
The sad truth of the early history of the USA is that jews infiltrated the Founding Fathers. The original U.S. was founded by our true White Founding Fathers. But the CONstitution was a jew job, with the top jews being Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and Gouvenor Morris (spelling varies on his name). Our great White Thomas Jefferson was in France when the jews committed their CON. Our true White Founding Fathers demanded that the Bill Of Rights be added to the CONstitution, and it was, 2 or 3 years later.
One of my several sources is the top-truth scholarship of Jim Laffrey. Here is a link to his historic article of several years back:
And this page on his own website includes related materials and very much more:
Also, I read your statement somewhere on your homepage of praise for MLK. A little research easily turns up the fact that Michael King Jr. (real name) was trained by jews in a communist(jew) school in Tennessee, and then his speeches and public stunts were usually the work of a jew (whose name escapes me at the moment), and King was a perverted, whore-beating nigger — documented by the FBI, who sometimes put truth to paper.

You claim that as a source. For you, I looked at it. LOL garbage is what it is, by a congoloid (cyndi) referencing Dick Gregory (infamous old congoloid communist) to repeat jew-planted nonsense trying to poison all of history against us Whites. Also on that cyndi site are blatant anti-White articles with urgings of “black power” and the like. There’s more verifiable top truth in my single comment above than on that whole site.
This is your site, so if you reply again, I will let yours be the last word.

Are you one of those: It is all the jews fault types? Or do you see evil exist in all races and creeds?
we have perhaps all been conned and yet it was not by ‘just’ the jews! In fact many that say or lay claim to being jew are not!
