Update on Theodore Roosevelt

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Obviously, he’s dead but what else can be new?

My opinion of him, of course.  😉

I have enjoyed President Theodore’s “Bullyisms” and larger than life presence.

My impression of him is that he ran on the hypomanic side,

that is, just short of manic.

As I read through and try to grasp concepts in another book by Cleon Skousen,

Skousen has brought to my attention the fact Teddy Roosevelt

did so many ‘end runs’ around Congress and the separation of powers

that I must reevaluate my bullish stance on, well, The Bully!

For sometime I have known the Spanish-American War and Roosevelt’s Rough Riders

were parts of a long public brain washing campaign by certain American Media mogul types,

namely William Randolf Hurst!

And that the sinking of The Maine was another in a long series of Red Flag historic events in our country’s history

designed and fabricated in order to get US into war (again).

But, I must acknowledge the fact that Teddy issued 90,000 executive orders during his time in the White House!

While he was no where near The New World Order lackey that “Colonel” Edward Mandel House manipulated,

Theodore Roosevelt set some pretty terrible precedents when he sought to usurp the power & the role of the US Congress in enacting legislation.

Indeed, TR was our last President before the banking industry and The New World Order and the Queen of England got their clutches upon our electoral throats.

Moreover, clearly the electorate has not been in charge of the US since then!

But, one must be reminded that our last duly elected non-New World Order secret-society-bastard was President William McKinley–

A man whose running of the country was so smooth that he is remembered primarily for the fact he was assassinated.

Perhaps our best Presidents were those who were neither flamboyant nor well remembered.

Roosevelt’s Last Words to the Public

“We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile. We have room for but one language here and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, and American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding house; and we have room for but one soul [sic] loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.”

Teddy on Health Care & Self Government

“We cannot make the Americanization movement a success unless we approach it from the economic standpoint. It is true that governmentally Germany is an autocracy. But there has been a great deal more industrial freedom there than many of our old industrial communities. The German Government says we expect you to work out good results, to get together with the laborer, and yourselves decide what you are going to pay to the doctors who are to pass upon the health of the employes, and the amount of damages any employe merits. The Government insists upon a great amount of self-government by the people themselves.

“I feel that by insistence upon proper housing conditions we shall indirectly approach this. I want to see the immigrant know that he has got to spend a certain amount of his money in decent housing; that he will not be allowed to live on $2.50 per month board basis.

The New York Times.  (February 2, 1916) “A Roosevelt Idea Made in Germany.” p. 5.

What we need to learn from this is that we were and are expected to govern ourselves when it comes to selecting medical care and medical costs.  What we have done since 100 years ago is give up our responsibility and, without realizing it (yet), our freedom.  Freedom to determine the best course of medical treatment for ourselves.

What we have today are the “strong arm tactics” of the insurance industry.  Insurance came from the strong arm tactics of protectionism.  It evolved from the Sheriff of Nottingham requiring peasants pay him for protection.  Of course, there is a certain ironic element of extortion in that!

La Costa Nostra was famous for demanding “payment” in exchange for “protection.”   So, today, 100 years later we have given up huge rights (and duties) in our self-government and in our health care.  We are being held hostage (extorted) by the health insurance companies!

The insurance companies have spoiled everything!  Their policies & procedures have ruined professional practise and limited treatments available.  We have the worst health on the planet as a result of the gargantuan health care system the government has regulated into existence.  The coming “change” in government rationed health care by committee is going to wreak further havoc upon our health.

Has America Become a Polyglot Boarding House?

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

 

theodore-roosevelt-john-muir

“This is a nation

— not a polyglot boarding house.

There is not room in the country for any

50-50 American,

nor can there be but one loyalty

— to the Stars and Stripes.”

 

–Theodore Roosevelt

 

 

The Washington Post (May 28, 1918).

 

“Use Only English, Roosevelt Urges.” p. 2.

  

Which is just what we’ve made it:

 

 A Polyglot Boarding House

 

A MERE BOARDING HOUSE!

 

Foreigners get the best jobs

 

 

Contrary to popular belief,

most of the money sent out of the country

does not go to Mexico

but to India.

While $25 Billion is exported annually to

Mexico

 

That is, in “legally” earned money–

–not the drug tade!

$25.2 Billion is exported annually to India!

“I appeal to all our citizens no matter from what land their forefathers came, to keep this ever in mind, and to shun with scorn and contempt the sinister intriguers and mischief makers who would seek to divide them along lines of creed, or birthplace or of national origin.”

“The salvation of our people lies in having a nationalized and unified America, ready for the tremendous tasks of both war and peace.”

–Theodore Roosevelt

While the sole purpose of the EEO and so-called “Equal Employment Opportunity” laws & policies is to divide us along racial and gender and other lines, the goal of the EEO is to divide US in a manner that allows US to be conquered.

–John Taylor Kent, Ph.D.

Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907:

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. 

But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American … There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language … and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” (emphasis and spacing added)
