A statue of Theodore Roosevelt that has stood in front of the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan for more than 80 years was hauled away Wednesday, photos show. The bronze monument depicting the nation’s 26th president on a horse flanked by an African man and a Native American man—which has sparked protests for glorifying colonialism and racism—was yanked out with a crane just after midnight, leaving behind only its concrete pedestal. The controversial effigy will now be sent to a library in North Dakota on long-term loan, officials have said. The $2 million removal, carried out by the museum and the city,

Does anyone at the Museum of Natural History realize that Theodore Rosevelt was perhaps the single greatest influence of our time on conservation. Is it not odd that the museum, which owes its mission in large part to Rosevelt would remove a statue of him? It's as if they really aren't serious about history at all.

This is why they remove statues... It's to erase history... They replace it with mind numbing idiocy like 278 genders... It isn't sad... It's dangerous.

This is what Marxists do, rewrite history and impugn iconic heroes so they can divide us and weaken America. Teddy Roosevelt wasn't woke enough.

I feel included. Do you feel included. Nothing says inclusion like excluding others. Rewrite history can and will be played out over and over. Its a symptom of a failing system. And the results of a failing system are chaos and set backs. Look at eat roman Empire and what became of Europe. Same is true in the Chinese dynasties. And we still witness the decline of the once great Muzzie empires of the Middle Ages (seems they never learned once they went down the rewrite of history path).

I’m sure Teddy wouldn’t mind being taken to a friendlier All-American clime like North Dakota where are plenty of outdoorsy people who appreciate him. Not like the rotten Apple with all its crime-ridden socialism and drug-addicted vagrants. The neighborhood has changed a lot in the last eighty years.

Im so sorry - I meant to post the following here but somehow it ended up on a different article. Id erase it from there if I could...but I can't so please forgive the double post here: I think we should start a whisper campaign: "Slavery, you say?" "Yeah, White Man bad, bought blacks, sold them, oppressed them. White men glorified it with statues and books." "Is that so? Well, where are they? I want to see them. I cant believe that happened!" "Proof...?" "Well, yeah...where are all the statues? I mean anyone can put anything in books, so thats no proof, but where are all these men you said oppressed blacks? All I see is black figures." "But they were there..." "I dont think so. I dont think they ever existed. So therefore...slavery didn't exist."

Reminds me of ISIS running around and destroying antiquities everywhere they went in Iraq and Syria. Total erasure of anything that doesn't fit the current political climate. You cannot learn from the mistakes of history if you remove the historical narrative.

Regulations issued by President Biden during his first year in office will cost $201 billion and add 131 million hours in annual paperwork, far exceeding the first-year outcomes of Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, according to an analysis released Thursday. The American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute that has tracked regulatory costs since 2005, said a vehicle emissions rule issued by the Environmental Protection Agency was by far the most costly rule, at $180 billion. It nudged Mr. Biden’s total regulatory costs to three times that of Mr. Obama’s first-year total of $65 billion and 40 times that of Mr. Trump, who made cutting red tape

I’m not sure what Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) thought he was going to get by pushing a vote on the Democratic effort to federalize elections (which they call ‘voting rights’) and on the filibuster. Schumer knew that he was likely to get a “no” on the filibuster from Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ). They’ve only been holding fast on the subject for months. Both also were very firm on the subject in speeches — Sinema earlier in the week and Manchin earlier on Wednesday. It wasn’t happening, they said. But Schumer decided to commit electoral suicide anyway, and he got it tonight.
