  • Mother Earth Above The Altar In A Cathedral - What Would Teddy Roosevelt Or Richard Nixon Say?

    I push boundaries. And try to bring together people who are different. I think conservatives should be proud of having some of the best ground breaking conservationists in modern history among their numbers (Teddy Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, Margaret Thatcher and Arnold Schwarzenegger) St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne is currently doing the same by hanging an image called Gaia above the space occupied by the altar and the seats of the choir. Is this legitimate free expression by the cathedral? Or should this environmentalism have been stopped at the door? What would Jesus say?

    He was one of the most consequential public figures of the last century. Winston Churchill was a man of many interests. Even now, his paintings fetch prices approaching those of the master Hunter Biden. Always fascinated with words, Sir Winston mobilized the English language and skillfully used them to help win a world war. Churchill was also interested in history. That curiosity combined with his considerable writing talents to produce his four volume classic, The History of the English-Speaking Peoples. He began writing in the 30s during his “wilderness years.” He didn’t finish it until the early 1950s. It begins...

    There is a massive pandemic to which we have to adjust. But we must not forget who we are and what we need to be. Free beings. Freedom is the opposite of a corrupt culture of fear. Right now it is Donald Trump who is showing the world how to face the Coronavirus without fear. God Bless America
  • Why New York Times praises ‘cancel culture’ but skips over its own racist history

    In a recent article about Mount Rushmore, The New York Times said of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt that “each of these titans of American history has a complicated legacy.” Reporters Bryan Pietsch and Jacey Fortin casually summarized the woke herd’s litany of grievances: Washington and Jefferson owned slaves, Lincoln was “reluctant and late” to issue the Emancipation Proclamation and Roosevelt “actively sought to Christianize and uproot Native Americans.” Rushmore’s sculptor, Gutzon Borglum, didn’t escape unscathed. “Borglum had been involved with another project: an enormous bas-relief at Stone Mountain in Georgia that memorialized Confederate leaders,” the...

    With a rousing Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore, President Trump certainly laid down the principles on which he will now go to the hustings. His choice of a setting put him before the famed monument to four presidents — each of which is a target of the movement that has been seeking to besmirch or destroy statues of our national leaders. Mr. Trump left no doubt in respect of which side he is on. Snip . . .

    The Federalist ^ | June 24, 2020 | Kylee Zempel
    Since the museum has already explicitly stated Roosevelt had 'troubling views on race,' its condemnation is not merely of the monument, but of the man. As the woke mob continues its crusade, pillaging cities and purging history, the next victim of the “tear it all down” impulse is Theodore Roosevelt, or at least a statue of him. But if Teddy is so problematic he must be canceled, mustn’t we also cleanse all the artifacts connected to his legacy, including thousands of animals?The desecraters never intended to stop at Confederate monuments, of course, and now the sculpture honoring the 26th president...

    All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men and women to sit silently by and do nothing. – Anyone who thought that the American Taliban’s – aka, Antifa/BlackLivesMatter – efforts to tear down monuments and erase U.S. history would be limited to heroes of the Confederacy was living in a fantasy world. Over the past few weeks, they came for Christopher Columbus, and good men and women did nothing to stop them. Then they came for Thomas Jefferson, and good men and women did nothing. Next they came for George Washington, and good men and women did...

    A statue of President Theodore Roosevelt in front of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City will be removed, a statement from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's office said Sunday. Following the museum's request to remove the statue, which features the nation's 26th President on a horse with a Native American man standing on one side and an African man standing on the other, the mayor's office announced the approval. The announcement comes as several state's grapple with how to handle removals of confederate monuments and other controversial statues. "The American Museum of Natural History...

    The statue of President Teddy Roosevelt at the entrance to the Museum of Natural History in Manhattan will be removed amid widespread protests over racial inequality and police brutality in the United States, a report said Sunday. The statue, depicting the former president on horseback while flanked by a Native American man and a black man, has stood at the museum’s entrance since 1940, the New York Times reported.

    The bronze statue of Theodore Roosevelt, on horseback and flanked by a Native American man and an African man, which has presided over the entrance to the American Museum of Natural History in New York since 1940, is coming down. The decision, proposed by the museum and agreed to by New York City, which owns the building and property, came after years of objections from activists and at a time when the killing of George Floyd has initiated an urgent nationwide conversation about racism. For many, the “Equestrian” statue at the museum’s Central Park West entrance had come to symbolize...

    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...

    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...

    Slavery existed in Cuba longer than anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere, except Brazil. Slaves were purchased from Africa where Arab Muslim slave traders had enslaved an estimated 180 million blacks over the 14 centuries of Islamic rule. President James Buchanan wrote December 19, 1859: "When a market for African slaves shall no longer be furnished in Cuba ... Christianity and civilization may gradually penetrate the existing gloom." President Ulysses S. Grant stated, December 2, 1872: "Slavery in Cuba is ... a terrible evil ... It is greatly to be hoped that ... Spain will voluntarily adopt ... emancipation ......

    Born a slave in 1846, Holt Collier lived a most extraordinary life for all of his 90 years. In fact, his story is so interesting that while researching the origin of the Teddy Bear, following an innocent question from his daughter, author Minor Buchanon decided that Collier’s life needed to be documented and that’s just what he did in the biography: Holt Collier: His Life, His Roosevelt Hunts, and the Origin of the Teddy Bear. This well researched book documents all of the ins and outs of his life and is definitely worth a read. Slave, Confederate soldier, Ninth Texas...

    New York City resident Todd Aydelotte has come up with an inventive way to make long runs in the city interesting: Turn them into a history lesson. It started about two years ago, when he started running longer distances. Inspired by ultrarunners like Tommy Rivers Puzey and Timothy Olson, who seem to run wild, free, and connected to the land, Aydelotte wanted to bring that to his own runs. But running in canyons and near streams is not easily feasible in the concrete jungle. Aydelotte needed to find a different way to motivate himself to go farther and distract himself...

    The recent pardon of the late world heavy weight champion Jack Johnson by our president was a gracious act long overdue. A previous motion had passed the House but died in the Senate in 2008. Johnson’s racially motivated conviction for violating the Mann Act after he had married a white woman resulted in his beginning a year term in Leavenworth prison in 1920. It was not a salutary place; I buried one of its inmates who had done much more than a year there. Johnson skipped bail and spent several years in Europe via Canada. In Barcelona, much in need...
