Rumors of corruption in the Harding administration were beginning to circulate in Washington by 1923, and Harding was profoundly shocked by a long message he received while in Alaska, apparently detailing illegal activities by his own cabinet that were apparently unknown to him. At the end of July, while traveling south from Alaska through British Columbia , he developed what was thought to be a severe case of food poisoning . He gave the final speech of his life to a large crowd at the University of Washington Stadium (now Husky Stadium ) at the University of Washington campus in Seattle , Washington . A scheduled speech in Portland, Oregon , was canceled. The President's train proceeded south to San Francisco . Upon arriving at the Palace Hotel , he developed pneumonia . Harding died in his hotel room of either a heart attack or a stroke at 7:35 . (19:35) on August 2, 1923. The formal announcement, printed in The New York Times of that day, stated: "A stroke of apoplexy was the cause of death." He had been ill exactly one week. 
Anyone who has an OUNCE of real character, they want to destroy. People with convictions, character, courage… they aren’t robots, and they can’t be treated like one; and robots are all these people want, apparently. I have to wonder if the poor fools who will try and enforce this idiot list are aware that even if they manage to, then THEY’RE NEXT on the list to go into the incinerator? The “elites” do NOT want the rabid dog personality it’s going to take to enforce THIS list running around loose after they’re through with them! As for the “terrorist” designation, that’s ridiculous. The sole reason for it is the unconstitutional “laws” of the PATRIOT Act and the NDAA BOTH allow them treat “terrorists” like dirt, or like animals – or less. Sheesh! When many if not MOST of those they’ll be killing off as “terrorists” would be the first to defend against real terrorists! They’ll find out, I have no doubt.
