    A group of protesters toppled statues of former presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln in Portland’s South Park Block late Sunday before moving into other areas of downtown, smashing windows and engaging in other acts of destruction. Police declared the event a riot and ordered people in the area to disperse but did not directly intervene until nearly an hour after the first statue fell. The crowd scattered when police cruisers flooded the area, and officers appeared to make several arrests. Protest organizers had promoted the event on social media as an “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage.” Monday is the...

    Fox has unveiled a new entry in the Night at the Museum series: Night at the Museum: Revenge of the Statues. The film will center around angry statues emerging from dumpsters and rivers where Antifa rioters threw them in order to destroy the outraged protesters. Christopher Columbus, Teddy Roosevelt, and George Washington will stalk the frightened rioters one by one. "This summer, the statues are back, and this time, it's personal," says the movie voice guy in the trailer released by Fox today. "No more Mr. Nice Grant." "You won't take them for granite anymore." The trailer then shows a...

    An Iowa high school baseball team started its season on Monday by kneeling during the national anthem in support of Black Lives Matter and racial injustice, according to multiple reports. All of the Roosevelt Roughriders players linked arms and were seen kneeling as "The Star-Spangled Banner" echoed through Principal Park in Des Moines ahead of the team's first game against Ankeny Centennial. “[We have a] lot of diversity, and a lot of people of color," a Roosevelt senior outfielder told Des Moines WHO 13. “We’re just trying to show our appreciation, and it’s about social justice."

    ....With the exception of the few highest ranking naval officials, nobody was aware of Roosevelt's intention to send the fleet around the world. Even the President's own cabinet didn't know about it. All anyone knew was that the fleet would be steaming from the east to West Coast in a training exercise. Once the plans for the cruise became public, not everyone was impressed.... Senator Eugene Hale from Maine, chairman of the Naval Appropriations Committee, threatened to withhold money for the cruise. But this didn't bother Roosevelt, who replied in his typically brusque and forthright fashion that he already had...
  • Sailors on sidelined USS Theodore Roosevelt get virus for second time

    Five sailors on the U.S. aircraft carrier sidelined in Guam due to a COVID-19 outbreak have tested positive for the virus for the second time and have been taken off the ship, according to the Navy. The resurgence of the virus in the five sailors on the USS Theodore Roosevelt underscores the befuddling behavior of the highly contagious virus and raises questions about how troops that test positive can be reintegrated into the military, particularly on ships. All five sailors had previously tested positive and had gone through at least two weeks of isolation. As part of the process, they...

    Donald Trump has lead the world in placing the emphasis on getting the economy going in the pandemic situation. He channels the spirit of Republican America when he says that the country is not built to shut down. While the high death toll is not a good looking statistic, the reality is that any nation with a high death toll is probably way ahead in the race to get herd immunity. In the political context of Australia, the closest thing to Donald Trump’s priorities is the approach of the Prime Minister Scott Morrison. He has been extremely vocal in calling...

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Wednesday said that the aircraft carrier that docked in Guam after hundreds of sailors were infected with coronavirus could be back at sea “in a few weeks.” Esper’s comments on the USS Theodore Roosevelt came after the Navy said earlier Wednesday that 615 sailors from the ship have tested positive for COVID-19, and 4,046 of the 4,800-person crew have been moved ashore in Guam. The Pentagon chief said on Fox News that a majority of sailors who have the virus are asymptomatic “and so we’re trying to be doubly careful as we clean that ship...

    A sailor from the U.S. aircraft carrier stricken with the novel coronavirus has died from complications related to COVID-19, the Navy said Monday. The sailor from the USS Theodore Roosevelt was declared dead Monday after being taken to an intensive care unit last week, the Navy said in a statement. The sailor’s identification is being withheld until 24 hours after next of kin is notified. The sailor tested positive for the coronavirus March 30 and was in the middle of a 14-day isolation period on Naval Base Guam when he was found unresponsive during a daily medical check Thursday.

    Hundreds of Navy officers gathered on board the coronavirus-stricken USS Theodore Roosevelt's hangar deck to cheer for and applaud their commander, hours after he was dismissed. Capt. Brett Crozier was relieved of duty on Thursday due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command and for not following the chain of command to voice his concerns about coronavirus on the ship to service leaders. A video was posted to Michael Washington’s Facebook page, that has since been reposted on several platforms, along with the hastags #MYCO and #WEARETRSTRONG. “That’s how you send out one of the greatest captains...

Gonna jump right to FDR's fourth term with Biden. Pack the courts; interment camps; huge boondoggle infrastructure projects.

    Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., was born OCTOBER 27, 1858. As a child, he had debilitating asthma, often waking up at night as if being smothered to death. At 6-years-old, he watched Abraham Lincoln's funeral procession from the window of his grandfather's mansion in Union Square, New York City. Theodore was home-schooled as a child, becoming fascinated with animals and zoology after seeing a dead seal in a local market. His father, Theodore Roosevelt, Sr., was a successful New York business leader, who helped raise support for the Union during the Civil War. Young Theodore described him: "My father, Theodore Roosevelt, was...

    Is the New York Times "airbrushing" history again? It would seem so. On Saturday, November 22, Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko presided over a commemoration in Kiev of the 75th anniversary of the famine genocide of 1932-1933 that took the lives of 7-10 million Ukrainians. Known as the Holodomor (Ukrainian for "murder by hunger"), it is one of the greatest mass murders in history, and one of the cruelest ...

    I can imagine Trump at some point next year getting up and saying, “Never before in all our history have these forces [the media and the opposition party] been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred.” Actually those are the words of President Franklin Roosevelt in his last major campaign speech before the 1936 election. FDR didn’t refer to the media outlets that opposed him (like the Chicago Tribune) as “the enemy of the people.” Instead, he called them “the Tory press.” And what did he...

    Have the present-day progressives who say they admire him ever read him? The American Left has an abiding attachment to Theodore Roosevelt. Everyone from MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews to former Harvard University Press editor-in-chief Aida D. Donald keeps Roosevelt on hand as a stand-in example of a “good Republican” — invoked, perhaps, when the name of Abraham Lincoln has been outworn, and a new exemplar of “acceptable” Republicanism is needed. A “trans-partisan” figure and an original “progressive,” Roosevelt represents what the GOP could have been. But on the social issues that loom so large in the liberal Democratic mind, just...

    GRAIGNES, France (Reuters) - The lost U.S. paratrooper tapped on the door of the Rigault family’s farmhouse in Normandy in the early hours of June 6, 1944, miles south of his intended drop zone and soaking from his landing in the surrounding marshland. After four years under German occupation, 12-year-old Marthe Rigault, awoken by the roar of aircraft overhead, watched as her parents warmed the foreign soldier with a flask of coffee. By dawn, dozens of men from the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment had hunkered down on the Rigault farm outside the village of Graignes. As they did, the distant...

    Russia told the West on Wednesday the Normandy landings on D-Day in 1944 did not play a decisive role in ending World War II and that the Allied war effort should not be exaggerated. Moscow's comments might irk war veterans in Britain where the 75th anniversary on Wednesday of the largest seaborne invasion in history was marked at a ceremony in Portsmouth attended by Queen Elizabeth and world leaders including Donald Trump and Angela Merkel. Speaking at a weekly news conference in Moscow, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova offered a tribute to those who died on the western front of...

    ~ D-DAY, June 6, 1944 ~ NORMANDY INVASION May 1944 had been chosen at the conference in Washington in May 1943 as the time for the invasion. Difficulties in assembling landing craft forced a postponement until June, but June 5 was fixed as the unalterable date by Eisenhower on May 17. As the day approached and troops began to embark for the crossing, bad weather set in, threatening dangerous landing conditions. After tense debate, Eisenhower and his subordinates decided on a 24-hour delay, requiring the recall of some ships already at sea. Eventually, on the morning of June 5,...

    On the 75th anniversary of D-day I honor my dad's very good friend Shahan Kaprielyan. Shahan was an Armenian from Turkey who had come to our country to go to aviation school with my dad. When the war started he signed up to become a bombardier. While riding the train to report he was approached by an officer. I understand you can speak five languages. We can make most anyone into a bombardier in just a couple of months but we can't teach five languages. We want you to work in intelligence. So Shahan went in on the second wave...
