  • Teddy Roosevelt’s 100-year-old Message to Trump’s Enemies

    When a bullet tore into Teddy Roosevelt’s chest during a campaign stop in Milwaukee in 1912, a crowd ganged up on the would-be assassin after TR’s stenographer, a former football player, tackled him to the ground.“Lynch him! Kill him!” the crowd shouted. A wounded Roosevelt raised his hand to restore order. Roosevelt was well-acquainted with the passions that ripen the political environment for assassination.  He became a state assemblyman in 1882 after President Garfield was assassinated at a railroad station where, as it turns out, Robert Todd Lincoln – Abraham’s son – was present.  And, in 1901, he was sworn...
  • Trump Won the White House by Recapturing Reagan’s Magic

    The National Review ^ | June 27, 2017 | Henry Olsen
    Ronald Reagan often said that he did not leave the Democratic party, the party left him. That statement is usually considered to be mere political fluff, a ruse to make himself politically palatable to the voters who revered FDR and the New Deal. Yet, that view is both condescending and wrong. A close reading of Reagan’s thought shows that he was always more concerned with what government sought to do than the fact that government was used to do it. Reagan’s preferences always matched those of working-class Americans. Like him, these men and women voted for the Republican Dwight Eisenhower...
  • What if the Bureau of Land Management were its own country?

    Have you ever heard "what if Texas were its own country" or "what if California", etc.... Here we go. If Alaska were it's own country, because of its size and land mass it would rank 33rd among all of the world's nations. If Texas were it's own country, because of its size and land mass it would rank 40th among all of the world's nations. If California were it's own country, because of its size and land mass it would rank 59th among all of the world's nations. But what of the BLM - the Bureau of Land Management, an...
  • Eugenics: Margaret Sanger vs. Theodore Roosevelt

    12/17/2016 6:03:11 PM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 22 replies
    Here's something I do not understand: The very same people who blast Margaret Sanger, and inevitably bring up the fact that she supported eugenics, will then turn around and defend Theodore Roosevelt with the deepest sincerity knowing full well that Theodore Roosevelt also supported eugenics. Somehow TR is a good progressive, but MS is a bad progressive. How is this possible?!?!?!???? In my book, there are no good progressives and I think every last one of them ought to be thrown out onto the ash heap of history. What follows are two quotes, and I defy anybody - anybody to...

    Teddy Roosevelt wanted to prevent Muslim immigration to America: http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/263879/when-teddy-roosevelt-banned-muslims-america-daniel-greenfield He managed to achieve a ban on Muslim immigration, without violating religious freedom principles. He simply outlawed immigration of people from cultures that practice polygamy, using the precedent that was used to deny Mormon Utah statehood when Mormons practiced polygamy.

    Bill Clinton and others have blatantly stated that Hillary Clinton speaks directly to and receives counsel from dead people. So Hillary is literally a witch! There is no other name for what she's doing. It's witchcraft (called Necromancy in the Bible). I hope Christians understand how important it is this woman NOT be voted into presidency. While speaking at a dedication ceremony for the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in New York City on Wednesday, former President Bill Clinton said his wife "was known to commune" with Eleanor Roosevelt, and that Roosevelt had passed him a message through Hillary...

    (CNSNews.com) - President Obama warned on Thursday that despite his efforts to reduce the effects of climate change, it's "not going to come to an immediate stop." "We know that there is still going to be an inevitable impact as a consequence of rising temperatures. And that means conservation has been a cornerstone of my presidency." Obama even compared himself to President Teddy Roosevelt, as he addressed the 2016 Pacific Islands Conference of Leaders in his home state of Hawaii. "Since taking office, I've protected more than 548 million acres of our lands and waters for our children and our...

    A hundred years ago, Muslims were furious over an immigration bill whose origins lay with advocacy by a headstrong and loudmouthed Republican in the White House. The anti-immigration bill offended the Ottoman Empire, the rotting Caliphate of Islam soon to be defeated at the hands of America and the West, by banning the entry of “all polygamists, or persons who admit their belief in the practice of polygamy.”

    Live phonograph recording of former president Teddy Roosevelt speech regarding special interest corruption in the Democrat and Republican parties, given more than a century ago (1912). Words are just as true today as they were then. Could have been spoken by Donald Trump. Worth a listen, despite the poor audio quality.
  • Who was the first President to issue over 1000 executive orders?

    07/24/2016 12:53:14 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 32 replies
    Answer: Theodore Roosevelt, President #26. It has been said that Obama has racked up more debt than all previous presidents combined, and the same can nearly be said of Theodore Roosevelt with respect to executive orders. The first 112 years of America : 25 Presidents. The first 25 Presidents : 1262 executive orders. Theodore Roosevelt : 1081 executive orders. Keep in mind, Roosevelt didn't even serve two full terms, he was in for 7.5 years. And yes, many of these executive orders were explicitly to do an end-run around congressional authority, just like Obama does. Just like Obama. In which...

    On this day in 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signed legislation giving the Yosemite Valley and the nearby Mariposa Big Tree Grove to the state of California “upon the express conditions that the premises shall be held for public use, resort and recreation.” Championed by Sen. John Conness (R-Calif.), the so-called Yosemite Grant included the first parkland the federal government ever set aside for preservation and public use. It set a precedent for the creation of Yellowstone as the nation’s first national park in 1872. The legislation to bar commercial development in the park was drafted with the aid of the...

    Constitution.com ^ | June 5, 2016 | Dave Jolly
    Prior to the election of AmericaÂ’s longest serving socialist president, our money was backed by gold. Anyone holding our paper currency could demand to exchange it for gold at a set price. In 1913, the gold standard was officially made part of the Federal Reserve and the price of gold was fixed at $20.67 per ounce. The same law mandated that the Federal Reserve kept enough gold on hand to equal 40% of the currency issued at the time.On March 4, 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was sworn into office for the first time. The day after his inauguration, Roosevelt closed...
  • Riots, Guns, Bribes: TR's Contested Convention

    The Atlantic ^ | April 23, 2016 | Geoffrey Cowan
    Would a candidate for president of the United States ever officially condone a riot on the floor of a national convention? Would a candidate actually ever seek to provoke one? Should delegates at a convention be permitted to carry guns? Can supporters of a candidate try to buy delegate votes? Could any of these things happen at a contested Republican Convention this year in Cleveland? It seems unlikely, but there would be precedents. Amazingly, in 1912, when Theodore Roosevelt tried to wrest the nomination from William Howard Taft, there were plans for riots, plenty of guns, and more than a...

    The progressingamerica project exists primarily, for more than any other reason, to show just how dangerous progressivism is. The progressives own history is one of the best weapons we have against these people. Read this, this is Obama. He could have very well said this in our time. Now, my ambition is that, in however small a way, the work I do shall be along the Washington and Lincoln lines. While President I have been President, emphatically; I have used every ounce of power there was in the office and I have not cared a rap for the criticisms of...

    Franklin D. Roosevelt warned at Madison Square Garden, October 28, 1940:"WE GUARD AGAINST the forces of anti-Christian aggression, which may attack us from without." FDR said in a Fireside Chat, April 28, 1942: "THIS GREAT WAR effort must be carried through... It shall not be imperiled by the handful of noisy traitors - betrayers of America, betrayers of Christianity itself." FDR stated at a Campaign event in Brooklyn, New York, November 1, 1940:"THOSE FORCES HATE democracy and Christianity as two phases of the same civilization. They oppose democracy because it is Christian. They oppose Christianity because it preaches democracy." Franklin...

    Coach is Right ^ | 1/12/16 | Michael D. Shaw
    There have been plenty of articles on this site and elsewhere, explaining why Donald Trump—as the non-politician, not beholden to special interests—has taken such a commanding lead in the polls. Likewise, many Republicans, who are either flat-out liberal, or simply give lip service to conservative values, are being called out as “Republicans In Name Only…RINOs.” At the same time, much less dissension is visible on the Democratic side. Let’s explore this situation, bearing in mind that any elucidation of the RINO phenomenon must acknowledge the “No True Scotsman” fallacy. As such, we must take care to define our terms carefully....

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt loved to keep secrets. He didn't want the public to know he was bound to a wheelchair, so he went to elaborate lengths to hide his inability to walk on his own. And when he was dying, his doctors hid it from the public. Even Roosevelt himself didn't want to know. Secrets of a different sort lie at the heart of two new books about Roosevelt the candidate and Roosevelt the president, with a special guest appearance by Adolf Hitler, before he became der fuehrer. David Pietrusza's 1932: The Rise of Hitler and FDR--Two Tales of Politics,...
