How did Jackson solve the issue of states' rights? A: He lowered federal tariffs but affirmed his power to use the military to collect them. B: He allowed the Southern states to ignore the federal laws with which they disagreed. C: He allowed South Carolina to secede from the Union. D: He invaded South Carolina and forced John Calhoun out of office.

The correct answer is A) He lowered federal tariffs but affirmed his power to use the military to collect them.

The states rights issue referred to in the question dealt with the Tariff of "Abominations." This name of the tariff, given to by Southern politicians, showed their distain for this tax on foreign goods. This is due to the fact that many Southerners made significant profits through trading with other countries.

Some Southerners went as far as to nullify this tariff. Nullification is a process in which a state ignores a federal law or ruling because they believe it is unconstitutional. This resulted in controversy between Northerners, Southerners, and the president (Andrew Jackson). Ultimately the tariff was lowered but Jackson reinforced the idea that the federal government still has control over the states, especially when it comes to following federal laws.

(1 point) A)It promotes competition among a variety of media sources B)It allows people the freedom to criticize public officials C)It fosters cooperation between the media and the government D)It requires absolute certainty of all published information 2-Which of the following examples support the notion that a free press is an essential element of a limited government?

1. B - It allows people the freedom to criticize public officials.

When the citizens had the freedom to cricitize its own government, the government would be forced to live up to a certain standard. This would dramatically reduce the complacency within the government body, and the government become more likely to listen and create legislations that satisfy the majority of people.


2. A. Journalists are entitled to cover trials

and

C. It is difficult for public officials to win libel cases.

Through this, the journalist could act as a middle man that connect what happen within the government body, transform it into pieces of information, and give it to the people so we can form our own opinion about it. Difficulties to win libel cases favours journalists because it allow them to criticize public officials without direct threat of of being sued for smearing their name.

Read the following quotation from Catholic bishop Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet at the court of Louis XIV. Rulers then act as the ministers of God and as his lieutenants on earth.

(A) a French aristocrat (B) a bishop who was not a member of the royal court (C) a member of the British Parliament (D) an absolute monarch from Spain or Russia

Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet was a French bishop and theologian, known for his sermons. He was considered one of the best orators, and a master French stylist. He was a strong supporter of political and royal absolutism, and the divine right of the kings.  He claimed that the kings received power from God.  As such, he was a strong advocate of the struggle against Protestantism, even published the work "Exposition on the Doctrine of the Catholic Church on the Matters of Controversy", where he is addressing his point on the subject.

Which best describes Carrie Chapman Catt’s “Winning Plan” to achieve national women's suffrage? to demand a constitutional amendment instead of campaigning for suffrage in individual states to campaign strongly for women’s suffrage on the state level instead of lobbying Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to win women’s suffrage in as many states as possible while campaigning Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to amend the US Constitution to grant women suffrage and then establish it in individual states

I believe the answer is: to win women's suffrage in as many states as possible while campaigning Congress to pass a constitutional amendment.

Catt's winning plan revolve around selecting the government representatives that openly support suffrage movement to have a position in the legislative body.

By doing this in as many states as possible, the suffrage movement would have enormous power that force the federal government to conform and created an amendment to guarantee women's right to vote.

What deal did the democrats and republicans make regarding the presidential election of 1786

The United States presidential election of 1876 was the 23rd quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 7, 1876. It was one of the most contentious and controversial presidential elections in American history. The results of the election remain among the most disputed ever, although it is not disputed that Samuel J. Tilden of New York outpolled Ohio's Rutherford B. Hayes in the popular vote. After a first count of votes, Tilden won 184 electoral votes to Hayes's 165, with 20 votes unresolved. These 20 electoral votes were in dispute in four states. In the case of Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina, each party reported its candidate had won the state, while in Oregon one elector was replaced after being declared illegal for being an "elected or appointed official". The question of who should have been awarded these electoral votes is the source of the continued controversy concerning the results of this election.

An informal deal was struck to resolve the dispute: the Compromise of 1877, which awarded all 20 electoral votes to Hayes. In return for the Democrats' acquiescence to Hayes's election, the Republicans agreed to withdraw federal troops from the South to end the Reconstruction Era of the United States. The Compromise effectively ceded power in the Southern states to the Democratic Redeemers, who went on to pursue their agenda of returning the South to a political economy resembling that of its pre-war condition, including the disenfranchisement of black voters.

This was the first presidential election since 1852 in which the Democratic candidate won a majority of the popular vote. This is also the only election in which a candidate for president received more than 50 percent of the popular vote, but was not elected president by the Electoral College, and one of five elections (in addition to 1824, 1888, 2000 and 2016) in which the person who won the most popular votes did not win the election. To date, it remains the election that recorded the smallest electoral vote victory (185–184) and the election that yielded the highest voter turnout of the eligible voting age population in American history, at 81.8%.

Select all that apply. get approval from president work on a subcommittee to amend a bill get approved by the committee work with lobbyist to pass legislation through the House pass the Senate vote, and move to the other chamber

I believe the answer is:

- get approved by the committee  

- pass the senate vote, and move to the other chamber

After passing the subcommittee's test, the bill would be reviewed by the committee in order to see whether it's can be realized with their current budget. After that, the bill would be passed to the senate so each representatives from states could vote for the bill. Simple majority (more than 50% votes) would make the bills able to move to other chamber.
