Again, and it doesn't seem. Unfortunately, it does. Another thing that I was to go back kind of funny as you don't need a big sports fan but once I saw a great quote I think it was even like a president maybe Roosevelt that said I read the sports pages every day. More than the rest of the paper because the rest of the paper. Because sports pages are about triumph and tragedy. There is somebody winning somebody really there's an outcome to instead of just the day to day mundanity of the world and I wish I had the exact quote because I'm sure I butchered it but if you will I'm paraphrasing.

The great broadband divide: Living without high-speed internet access
"Austin, Texas, So many kids weren't online last semester, but the school system had to print and male 40,000 homework packets a week. They resorted to fill in school buses with portable WiFi hot spots and parking them near apartment complexes where a lot of people have no broadband service. Now, you might say Austin shining star of high Tech American cities. According to geese own Austin illustrates the biggest broadband problem of all the vast majority of Americans who don't have broadband Internet access is because they can't afford it because the price is too high. And sure enough, the U. S. Has the third most expensive broadband Internet in the developed world. Mostly because there's not much competition. It's just a money problem and not a problem of putting wires in the ground. We should be complaining about both the lack of actual network infrastructure. In many places, but also the cost. The thing is, we fix problems like this before. In 1930 for only 11% of rural Americans had electricity. President Franklin Roosevelt created the rural Electrification Administration. New lines going up almost everywhere. At the rate of 500 miles a day, and within 20 years, 90% of those homes had cheap, reliable electricity. Now. Over the years, the government has come up with a basket of programs designed to help with Internet affordability and accessibility. Unfortunately, sewn says they haven't always worked as designed. The FCC has now for well over a decade paid out tens of billions of dollars to rule broadband companies to build Internet access. In places where there isn't any And the fact of the matter is is that the government has gotten a very, very poor return on its investment. This FCC and I'll even say you know, the FCC that I work for has not done a very good job of demanding that these companies tell us what they've actually built with the money they've gotten. This is not making the FCC looked too good. I don't think it's incompetence. I think part of it is resource is you know the the FCC staff has shrunk enormously. In the last decade or so, where to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the FCC chairman a Jeep. I declined our request for an interview. But in a written response, the FCC says We ensure efficient cost effective spending on subsidies for rural broadband. Earlier this year, Congress passed a law requiring the FCC to improve the way it measures Internet access. But the FCC says that nothing will happen unless Congress also pays for it. The FCC simply does not have the $65 million we need to start the process and implement that law through its first year. Meanwhile, the agency is promoting new technologies like five g, cellular and low earth orbit satellites that might address our broadband problems someday. But for now, most seem to agree on one thing. Especially these days, the Internet should be considered a necessity.
Red Light Cameras Activated At Lindbergh & 70th Street In Southwest Philadelphia
"Because now the so called speed cameras air up. Here's the danger of progressives with this they use the Roosevelt Boulevard. To start the red light camera movement. Meaning that there are now nine red light cameras there, But there are multiple red light cameras all over the area. Probably more than 20 or so something like that. I get stopped in New Jersey. The idea was we look a dish. You got a highway coming from City Grant and the boulevard? How many years ago? Did they start with the red light camera there and all the nonsense associated with it. Then after that, it spread well, we need more so I tried not to travel to read the Red light camera Bermuda Triangle of the Roosevelt Boulevard. If you're going 56 you're going to get a ticket. Now you've been on the Roosevelt Boulevard. People trying to You know, make time, it said or a 56. I think a lot of people could be doing that. What they do next, though. You'll hear when we need speed cameras over here, too, not just the Roosevelt Boulevard may take a year. Revenue. Revenue Revenue control revenue revenue revenue. There is a red light camera. At Market Street, Really? It's broad street headed south at City Hall in Philadelphia. Market and brought brought a market right there. CITY all if you turn headed south And I've seen so many people that get caught because you think you're going to get through the light. Then there's a jam up there and you got a red light camera tickets. It's outrageous. $100 ticket or it used to be. It might even be more now It's the speed camera. All this nanny state stuff. Go on to the guys. Well, you have to be a maniac to be against this stuff were just protecting. You were making a lot of revenue along the way for other progressive causes, But we're just protecting you. You should never get caught with this. Now You know how often it could happen with weather conditions. Being in a situation with a light. You got somebody on your bumper behind you. You feel you have to go through. It ought to be up to cops to make judgment on this and yet We're living in a city here in Philadelphia, where you see all kinds of illegal, outrageous behavior Go on, and nothing is done about it. It comes back to the same thing with the protesters and all the stuff that we talked about around that. So this idea of speed cameras now let's have them all over the place. I think we have too many cameras already. I get it. The usage in solving crimes occasionally and all that. But how far do we want to go? How much intrusion do you want? How many cameras do you want? Eyeballing you around the clock. That's always what the debate is. It's it's enough already. Speed cameras and always using the Roosevelt

Brooks Brothers Bankruptcy: Nostalgia, Anger, and a Bidding War
"The abandonment of the suit helps explain the struggles of one of America's most iconic fashion companies, brooks brothers, the two hundred two year old brand filed for bankruptcy protection on July eight sure blame cove nineteen, but now you'd be wrong. Suits with the three piece with Thai or skirts and high heels used to convey professionalism and competence, they served as symbols that you took your job seriously and respected your customers, the ones you were treating too expensive lunches, madman style, but even before the pandemic they'd become something of an anachronism. Most of us now see little to no relationship between the way we dress in our competence at work, think Mark Zuckerberg's hoodies. Indeed expensive suits can be viewed as a sign of elitism. Put it starkly. The corporate fashion code has gone by the wayside. Brooks brothers struggles represent a cultural shift, not just a Kobe tragedy. Brooks brothers famously dressed all but four presidents. It is the longest continuously operating fashion business in America and until this month it boasted about making its products in America the Brandon's three factories in the states in Massachusetts North, Carolina and New York. CEO Claude Delvecchio is planning to close those factories. We'll get to that in a minute. As you know, apparel sales have been decimated by pandemic closures in April nobody bought clothes whether from Brooks brothers or JC, Penney and other retail casualty, but did you know the actual numbers? Clothing sales fell almost ninety percent in April, according to retail dive, but brooks brothers began looking for a buyer about a year ago. The company operates five hundred stores two hundred of them in the US sales have been flat at about a billion dollars a year since twenty, seventeen, prior to the pandemic bankers estimated the company's value at three hundred to three hundred fifty million dollars. Figure Delvecchio disputed. As, I mentioned the company intends to close its three US factories later this month in the gritty industrial town of. Massachusetts home of its largest factory. Its largest immigrant workforce is being denied severance pay many of those workers, immigrants and refugees women from the Dominican Republic. Vietnam Burma and Nepal have made the company's fine clothing for years so far brooks isn't budging. Despite pleas from the union, and from members of Congress according to the Boston Globe in North Carolina, the factories, the only large employer in the little town of Garland closure would affect that town forever, mayor winifred. Hill, Murphy told The New York Times. In response, CEO, Del Vecchio, says for survival. We must hang onto as much cash as possible, but the globe reports that its chapter eleven filing includes plans to give compensation benefits, severance and bonuses totaling millions to other workers. Brooks brothers will transform, but unlike many of its retail brethren its survival is not in question. In fact, at least one bidder for the company believes it can earn annual revenue of three billion dollars within five years more than triple its current sales, so many buyers are vying for the brand at both the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg used the phrase the races on those making bids. Bids Include Mall Company Simon, property, group, authentic brands, group and W. H. P. Global another bidder is a group of Italian. Investors led by a company called GIO which typically helps fashion companies improve their online presences. The Wall Street Journal possibly with tongue firmly in cheek, considering the state cut of Brooks brothers clothing says Julia wants to quote introduced some European flair to the quintessential American brand. Julia's clients include Armani Maxmara and other designers. Brooks brothers is accepting bids through August fifth, so brooks will survive, but what about it's cheaper? Rival men's warehouse tailored brands which owns men's warehouse and the more upscale Joseph. A. Bank plans to close at least a third of its fifteen hundred stores. It said this month it hasn't filed for chapter eleven protection, but it came close according to CNN. That threat remains even after it stores reopened. Sales have been falling. They were down about eighty percent at Joseph A. Bank in the first week of June, as we all continue to do business in Pajama Pants as we all know nostalgia sells Joseph A. Bank doesn't have nearly the name or the history of Brooks brothers, which drips with nostalgia. Teddy Roosevelt apparently insisted his rough riders. Riders wear the Brand Abe. Lincoln was also a brooks brothers customer, one reason for the bidding war beyond what is sure to be the lowest price anyone ever imagined for the stalwart brand. Is What author Lisa Burn? Bach believes about Fashions Post. Pandemic Future Birnbaum who authored the twenty ten book true. Prep argues that the company must be saved after the pandemic finally end, she writes. There will be weddings. There will be funerals. There will be. We hope live operas and theatre and premieres in concerts and fancy dress parties. Where we can't predict the future, but we can observe the present, and what's happening to upscale apparel in the US. WHO's buying it and WHO's making it. Reveals a lot about our rapidly changing an enormously conflicted culture.
Teddy Roosevelt's great-grandson says remove the statue
"Last month, New York's Museum of Natural History announced that it's removing a statue of President Theodore Roosevelt that many find objectionable. It's a decision that has the full support of Mark Roosevelt, president of ST John's College in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the great grandson of Theodore Roosevelt. The subject Gatien of other races. By those of us of European origin. Is our nation's original sin. That sin began soon after our arrival on this continent and his bait tragic part of our history to this day. If we wish to live in harmony and equality. With people of other races. We should not maintain paternalistic statues, the depict Native Americans and African Americans in subordinate roles. A statue of my great grandfather. Eared our Roosevelt. In front of New York's Museum of Natural History does so that it is being taken down.

That is what books and classrooms therefore not monuments. Monuments are designed toe honor people and to keep those honorees and what they stood for alive in our collective memory. We're all of us in this country. Bound together by the tragedy of racial subject, Gatien and continuing violence and multiple other affronts to black Americans and other people of color. Those of us with power and influence who say we wish to do better are diminished. Fire stalled failed. And woefully insufficient attempts to actually do so. Those with power and influence who will not even acknowledge these wrongs. Are an embarrassment to the nation. If we wish to allow for historical nuance, and I do To continue to recognize Washington and Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt for their very really accomplishment. While also allowing that they like so many of us were complicity in our nation's original and ongoing sin. We must start by admitting that we've failed to acknowledge the depth of that sin. And immediately remove all memorials and statues honoring those who fought a civil war or otherwise worked to perpetuate that scent. And then we should get on with the desperately needed work of up roading, systemic racism wherever it is found.

"roosevelt" Discussed on American Elections: Wicked Game
"Both the bride and groom come from powerful New York families technically one powerful family. The bride is the groom's fifth cousin. Inside the parish home, the gasps mostly relatives and intimate friends are gathered in the drawing room, waiting for the ceremony to begin outside. The streets are packed with adoring. But they aren't here for the young couple. The fans are here to lay eyes on the bride's uncle. The most famous man in America many in the crowd have been waiting all day among them are too young men, both beyond excited. When's HE GONNA? Be here any moment say he's standing in for the bride's father, brother died. When he died about ten years ago. What happened well now? That's a story, so the bride's father had a drinking problem. They say he was confined to a sanitarium, and then he jumped out of a window. Good God. Tragedy Really, but what a man her uncle is to come all the way from Washington to walk his niece down the aisle. What a man indeed! Just a small car peers down the street. As it comes to a stop in front of the parish home. Secret Service agents in dark suits quickly hop out open the door, revealing the famous man. Everyone has been waiting to see. He looked dapper sporting dashing suit. The black top hat as a man steps out of the car crowd shows appreciation, and the too eager men trying to get closer come on. Where are you going I? WanNa see if I can shake his hand. Desperate to meet him, the two men barreled through the crowd as agents in dark suits to their best escort, the fellow to the front door he bounds up the stairs, shaking hands and loving every minute of the attention. When he reaches the top, he turns around flashes. A Grin gives a big wave beautiful day for a wedding, isn't it? With that he turns and disappears inside the parish home. The two young men are disappointed. Did you shake his hand? Now walked right past me same here. Should we go or should we stay? He's GonNa come out eventually. Let's wait for him. Walk Teddy just then alone. Voice starts a chance. The two men join in the chant along with the rest of the crowd. We want Teddy. We? Want Teddy. President Teddy Roosevelt's Donald Alice once observed. My father wanted to be the corpse at every funeral, the bride at every wedding and the baby at every Christening and at this particular wedding, the wedding of Franklin, Delano an Eleanor Roosevelt Teddy stole the show standing in for his late brother, he walked his niece eleanor down the aisle and gave her away. A ceremony was underscored by the sound of the crowd, chanting his name outside when the reverend finish the ceremony teddy called out from the congregation well Franklin. There's nothing like keeping the name and the family. Teddy then kissed the bride and led the guests into the next room for refreshments Franklin and eleanor tried to form a reception line, but the crowd followed teddy, and within a few minutes the newlyweds were standing alone. Wouldn't be the last time Franklin. Roosevelt would play second fiddle to his famous cousin. As a political. FDR would spend the next forty years trying to escape Teddy Shadow and build a name.

The World is Watching Us
"Why it matters spends a lot of time discussing how things that happen around the world of us at home. It's kind of our thing. But today we're GONNA flip that around because the killing of George Floyd, the protests against police, brutality and systemic racism, and the administration's response are not only unfolding here in the united. States the world is listening to and depending on where you are, the echoes can sound different. To better understand how this is playing out, we turn to two American journalists who've spent their careers. Reporting abroad will ask them to give us their own thoughts and experiences, and to describe what America looks like right now through the eyes of those who are watching from afar. They told us to places Africa and Hong Kong. I'm Gabrielle Sierra and this is why it matters today. Diplomacy starts at home. This kind of reminds me how throughout history and on I've studied history and political science, and throughout history, America's goal and mission of trying to go around and promote democracy and human rights around the world has constantly been undercut by how they treat minorities and particularly African Americans at home. I'm Keith Rich Berg I'm currently the director of the journalism and Media Studies Center at the University of Hong Kong, but I spent most of my career about thirty four years as a reporter and correspondent for the Washington Post. During the Cold War The old Soviet Union. Propagandists used to take great pleasure in pointing out. How Black Americans were treated in the American south during the Jim. Crow, era. Know the propagandists during the Vietnam War would like to point out how American blacks were being treated that we were not able to really as strongly as we wanted to stand up against the apartheid regime in South Africa in its early days, because the apartheid regime in South Africa was in many ways modeled on the Jim Crow segregation laws of the American south, so I think throughout history, America's stated mission and goal of promoting democracy and Human Rights and Roosevelt's four freedoms around the world have constantly been undercut by enemies who are willing to point out the hypocrisy of America's positions in America's promotion of human rights by saying before You Cup lecture US wanted you deal with their own problems at home. It's quite painful for me because I do have both experiences you know living in, America when Nigeria I do have both us. I've experienced racism in America. My name is Chico Odwalla. I am an independent multimedia journalist I am based in West Africa and I cover the entire continent for various international media outlets. Killing of George Floyd was very jarring. It was a wakeup. It was a brutal awakening for people who actually don't quite believe. Racism is as real as African Americans say that it is. You still got people who don't believe. It's that strong. Who believe that it's from the past that there have been many moves towards overcoming you know some people still believe that. America is a post racial society so for this incident. This killing of George Florida's like Oh. Actually it's still there and we saw it on TV we saw this guy breathing for his life for nearly nine minutes. So that aspect it is a rude awakening. It's really provoking some nations to look inward. Look at their own injustice for example in France. A people they're calling for an end to the chokehold that some police officers us, and so they're having debates on how to handle people

The White House continued to invite hearst for regular visits and to seek his counsel and cooperation. Things turned poorly, though after hearst and other industry leaders submitted their code for FDR's review heard a rumor that FDR might reject the code and tried to restrict the freedom of the press so response in February of Nineteen thirty four hearst wrote an article, stating that FDR was behaving like the Mussalini he's the Hitler's the Lennon's and all of those who seek to establish a dictatorial form of government by repressing the press. FDR was outraged, but after letting it sit on his desk for five weeks, he eventually accepted the newspaper industry's code, which included a proviso that reiterated the First Amendment's guarantee to freedom of speech with FDR signature, though also came an executive order and a defiant one. Insofar as Article Seven is not required by the act, it is pure surplus edge while it has no meaning, it is permitted to stand because it has been requested, and because it could have no such legal effect as would bars inclusion, nobody waves any constitutional rights by sending to a code, the recitation of the freedom of press clause, and the code has no more place here than would the recitation of the whole constitution or of the Ten Commandments. FDR's testing US outrage many in the press newspaper. Men like hearst hope the president would apologize. He never did and with a nineteen thirty four midterms coming up, antagonizing the press might not have been wise in what would be FDR's first political tests. Since taking office, the new deal was on the ballot and for Roosevelt. It was critical that the Democrats maintain control of the House and Senate, but FDR's plan was constantly under siege from William Randolph hearst's media empire, but in the fall of nineteen, thirty four with a midterm election just weeks away FDR would fight back. It September eleventh, nineteen, thirty four and Franklin Roosevelt's private office at his home in Hyde Park Roosevelt sits at his desk across from him, is Henry Morgenthau the secretary of the Treasury?

"roosevelt" Discussed on History Vs.
"During and after the siege of Santiago one of the last major operations of the Spanish American war. Us troops stationed in Santiago. Cuba were beset by malaria and yellow fever. Thousands of men were sick and dying but the McKinley administration planned to keep the troops in Cuba until peace talks were over and until they were healthy. According to some sources there was a real fear that six soldiers would come back to the states and start a yellow fever epidemic. But the situation was growing untenable and near the end of July General William shafter commander of the Fifth Corps gathered all of his commanders to discuss it. Roosevelt later recalled in his autobiography that. Although I had command of a brigade I was only a colonel and so I did not intend to attend. But General informed me that I was particularly wanted and accordingly. I went as Edmund Morris wrote in the rise of Theodore Roosevelt's all agreed that it was critical and that the war department's apparent unwillingness to evacuate. The army was inexcusable. Somebody must write a formal letter stating that. In the unanimous opinion of the Fifth Corps staff further stay in Cuba would be to the absolute object. Lewis ruin of the fighting forces. None of the regular officers wanted to risk his career by writing such a letter and suddenly the reason. Roosevelt's presence had been requested became clear. He was a volunteer. Who had quit his post as assistant secretary of the navy in order to fight and he intended to go right back to being a civilian. After the war he had much less to lose by offending his former boss. President William McKinley McKinley Secretary of war Russell Alger to incur. The hostility of the war department would not make any difference me whereas it would be destructive to the men in the regular Army Roosevelt later wrote. I thought this true and said I would write a letter or make a statement which could then be published Theodore. Roosevelt obviously wasn't afraid to speak up. Theodore. Roosevelt wasn't afraid of anything except inaction as Alfred. Henry Lewis would write a Roosevelt in nineteen ten. Mr Roosevelt has often shown that it is better to do the wrong thing than do nothing at all. The best thing is to do the right thing. The next best is to do the wrong thing. And the worst of all things is to stand perfectly still. We'll be right back in an effort to spur the McKinley administration to Action and bring American troops back to the states before they were decimated by yellow. Fever plan was hatched. Roosevelt would write an initial letter addressed general. Which would then be followed by a round robin letter? A method typically used to conceal the identity of the ringleaders of a movement which would be signed by Roosevelt and the other commanders. Then they would leak those letters to the press in his letter. Roosevelt wrote that to keep us here. In the opinion of every officer commanding a division or brigade will simply involve the destruction of thousands. There is no possible reason for not shipping practically the entire command north at once. All of us are certain that as soon the authorities of Washington fully appreciate the condition of the army. We shall be sent home. Roosevelt noted that in the Cavalry Division. At least there were no true cases of yellow fever but there were fifteen hundred cases of malarial fever. Hardly man has yet died from it he wrote but the whole command is so weakened and shattered as to be ripe for dying like rotten sheep when a real yellow fever epidemic instead of a fake epidemic. Like the present one strikes us as it is bound to do if we stay here at the height of sickness season. August and the beginning of September corentin against the malarial. Fever is much like quarantining against the toothache. If we are kept here it will in all human possibility mean and appalling. Disaster for the surgeons here estimate that over. Half the army of Kerr during the sickly season will die. The men were unable to penetrate into the interior and moving them around the island. Roosevelt said only sick in them. Further to delay sending the men home was not only terrible from the standpoint of the individual lives lost Roosevelt wrote but it means ruined from the standpoint of military efficiency of the flower of the American army for the great bulk of the regulars are here with you. He closed by saying that. I write only because I cannot see our men who have fought so bravely who have endured extreme hardship and danger so uncomplaining Louis Goto destruction without striving so far as lies in me to avert a doom is fearful as it is unnecessary undeserved Roosevelt's fellow commanders. Then signed their letter which noted that they were all in agreement that the army must be moved at once or Perish. Adding as the army can be safely moved to now. The persons responsible for preventing such a move will be responsible for the unnecessary loss of many thousands of lives are. Opinions are the result of careful personal observation and there are also based on the unanimous opinion of our medical officers with the army who understand the situation absolutely. There are different accounts of what happened next. But according to Roosevelt he wrote his letter and an Associated Press reporter tagged along when he went to give it to general shafter who promptly push it into the hands of the reporter. As Roosevelt later recalled. I presented the letter to General shafter. Who waited away and said I don't want to take it. Do whatever you wish with it. I however insisted on handing it to him whereupon he shoved it toward the correspondent of the Associated. Press who took hold of it and I released my hold. Something similar happened with a round robin and when the letters the press they caused a sensation the McKinley administration was incensed by the letters. According history and Louis L Gould. The day after the letters were published. Mckinley wrote a letter to shafter. Denounced th round robin as most unfortunate from every point of view adding the publication of the letter makes the situation one of great difficulty. No soldier reading that report ordered to go to San Diego but will feel that. He is marching to certain death. According to Morris some within the administration even suggested court-martialing Roosevelt for his letter the administration had reason to be rotated on August. Third the day before the round robin hit the press. Algebra Haddish in order for the army to be moved back to the United States which meant that many newspapers printed Roosevelt's letter right next to an announcement that the troops were being brought back to the public. It looked the Roosevelt's letter and the Round Robin had forced the McKinley administration to act which wasn't the case by August seventh. The first troops were heading back to the states to quarantine in Montauk on Long Island New York. Nothing ever came of the suggestion to Court Martial Roosevelt. Instead Secretary Algebra published a private letter in which tier bragged about the rough riders performance. Saying they were as good as any regulars and three times as good as any state troops while Algebra might have hoped that the letter would threaten tears. Chances of getting the governorship of New York. His tactic failed. Roosevelt returned to war hero. He became governor and then vice president and then president. He didn't however get the one thing he desperately wanted the medal of honor. Those simple leave. He was denied the honor because of the publicity stunt he had pulled as Mitchell Yochelson writes for the National Archives pro magazine. There's no evidence for that exactly. Why the BREXIT Board Denied Roosevelt? The award is not officially documented. Yochelson rights certainly. No evidence exists to support the contention. That Algeria held a grudge over the round. Robin Affair or Roosevelt's testimony to the Congressional Committee on the contrary letters from the Word Department to Roosevelt indicate that they were more than willing to assist him in getting the Medal of honor. One can only assume that the BREXIT board came to the conclusion that the Roosevelt contact in Cuba was quite admirable. He was not worthy of a medal of honor later. Roosevelt would write that. I was recommended for it by my superior officers in the campaign but I was not awarded it and frankly looking back at it now. I feel that the board which declined to a word. It took exactly the right position around a century after his experiences in Cuba tier would finally be awarded the Medal of Honor. Back to the present day. We've talked before on this podcast about how it's impossible to know how tr would have reacted to situations today in this case however one of Roosevelt's descendants has a different opinion in a piece for the New York Times to Roosevelt tr. Grandson and chairman of the Theodore Roosevelt Institute at Long Island University wrote about Captain Crozier and the situation on the USS Theodore Roosevelt as a descendant of the namesake of Captain Crozier's former command. I often wonder in situations like this. What Theodore Roosevelt would have done tweet? Roosevelt wrote in this case. Though I know exactly what he would have done in eighteen ninety eight. He found himself in almost the exact same position. In this era when so many seem to place expediency over honor it is heartening that so many others are showing great courage some even risking their lives. Theodore Roosevelt in his time chose the honorable course. Hampton crozier has done the same before we go. I want to say a huge thank you to the medical professionals and the essential workers who are out there risking their lives for us into all of the history versus listeners.

"And here's where it gets interesting. Roosevelt is a reformer and the New York machine hated him but they had a problem. They'd had a little bit of corruption. And they were GONNA lose. The next governor's race and all the patronage and all the contracting power and all the money and so they needed somebody to be there front man and so they went to Roosevelt and said look. You're a hero. And we want you to run for Governor and Roosevelt. Who always was willing to take the next opportunity? Came along and in that sense. He's a little bit like Winston Churchill and his life as a continuing series of enormously energetic gambles so he runs for the governor of New York and he runs with the train which is celebrating the charge of San Juan Hill. He has rough riders with him. They have people who can play the bugle. They basically are whipping up the patriotism the if you're a Patriot your Theodore Roosevelt and if you just were one of those people who wanted to haul back with corruption then you're going to vote for though yet so he wins and he is now the governor of the largest state in the country and that leads to a very different situation because it turns out that Roosevelt really is as he has always been a reformer and so he uses the governorship to start reforming New York. State government well. The machine is horrified. I mean they elected him to keep power so that they could use the power for their own enrichment and here he is taking apart their system so they wanna get rid of him. They're desperate to get him out of the state and along comes opportunity for Roosevelt to become the vice presidential nominee. And there's a great story that mckinlay's great adviser one of the greatest managers in American political. History was not in town the day. This decision was made and he turned. He said when he was told about it. Do you realize there's only one heartbeat between that damned cowboy in the White House and in fact. Mckinley was shot and died. And here you are in nineteen o one with Theodore Roosevelt President. Now you could not possibly an early eighteen ninety seven before the Spanish American war. You couldn't possibly have figured out how four short years later Theodore Roosevelt would end up being president but he was president and when he became president he was the most sophisticated populist to occupy the White House in modern times for example he understood that Associated Press which at that time was the dominant method of communicating for the news media in the country. The Associated Press every Sunday night at a huge hole. What it was covering. There's nothing going on. And yet they had to fill up for the Monday morning papers so every Sunday afternoon. Roosevelt would issue a statement which we get picked up and giving huge coverage because it met this associated. Press's need to have something and so Rosa began to become much better known that any president since Abraham Lincoln. He was also just an amazingly personable guy. One point he's boxing in the White House and the Retina of one of his is is detached and he can't see and he doesn't want his wife to learn that he had just lost sight on one of his ice so he kept boxing trying to avoid the I hit him on that side of his head and he would do stuff like this all the time. He was an archer. He was one hundred one of the things that made you. Amazingly popular was in one thousand nine hundred two. He went on hunting trip out west and there was a bear cub that somebody had tied to a tree so roosevelt shooting irresolute to kill bear. Cover you crazy. Well a Brooklyn. Toymaker decided that he would create a stuffed bear. Which at the time was called Teddy's bear and then became. Of course I teddy bear and it became wildly popular. And so here. You have a president who is continuing to be sort of slightly a wild man but is a wild man with a big smile and people love him is so much energy bouncing all over the place so lots of people get to see him and five his daughter Alice marriage. Nicholas Longworth the congressman from Ohio. And was the biggest social event of the decade. So many want set of Roosevelt that to truly understand teddy you have to recognize. He wants to be the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral really was how Roosevelt operated. It was his whole excitement about life. He wrote constantly published many books and he had a pretty serious sense of what he believed in what he was trying to do. And he was faced with a huge crisis and nineteen ninety-two o two because it was a big coal strike and it became obvious during the coal strike that the mine owners thought that they they were more powerful than the United States Government and Roosevelt brought them into the White House and he said look. Here's the situation. I am the president of the United States. I am prepared to send the. Us Army in to take over your minds. So unless you WANNA lose control of your mind potentially permanently. You'RE GONNA sit down and work out a deal with the strikers and I just want all of your member I'm the president and you're not and it was the first really big imposition of executive power on large businesses in America. And it stunned them. They began also to create a gap between the Reform Republicans and the old guard and the old guard was in favor of the big businesses and the reformers were in favor of the public interest at large and were willing to take on the big businesses in. Roseau clearly was in the group that was in favor of taking on a big business. It wasn't that he was for small things. It's important to remember that. They've been several efforts to build a canal across the isthmus both in Nicaragua and in Panama and actually one of the more fun things was as they were trying to decide whether to go to Nicaragua to Panama. One of the people who favored panel convinced the Post Office to issue a series of stamps showing volcanoes going off in Nicaragua and the house. One the more subtle examples of lobbying because people began to figure out. Well Gosh if they have all those volcanoes maybe that's not the right place to put the canal however Panama was owned by Columbia Columbia had a contract with the French who had failed. There are a number of technical problems. Digging the canal and in addition yellow fever killed the workers and enlarging rate and in nineteen ninety-three probably with the encouragement of the United States. There was a rebellion and Panama and the United States happen to have a warship nearby which happen to block the Colombian Navy from going back to impose order and therefore it was fair to say that Roosevelt invented panel. In order to build the canal he then undertook a project which would take until nineteen fourteen to complete. And if you've ever been to the Panama Canal you realize what huge engineering achievement? This was was also a huge public health achievement. Because in fact Walter Reed was the medical doctor for the US army and he discovered how to stop yellow fever and the result was an enormous improvement in health. So Roosevelt undertakes what is an enormous project and changes history during the Panama Canal has been a major part of world. Congress has been a major part of American national security because it allows us to move ships back and forth between the Atlantic and Pacific dramatically. Faster than if you have to go all the way around South America the Russians and the Japanese of fighting a very very tough war the Russians had been losing but the Japanese were running out of money and so they were pretty desperate to find a solution and Roosevelt invited them. Both to come to New Hampshire to Portsmouth with had a peace conference in Nineteen Zero four and Roosevelt. Got Them to sign an agreement ending the war and nineteen O six. He got the Nobel Peace Prize. Here is a many ways a militaristic personality. A guy who cheerfully went off to war and Cuba guy who cheerfully sent the Navy off to war in Manila and yet he is a very very good diplomat. Very successful and as you can imagine somewhere between the Panama Canal Teddy's bear and everything else he was doing. He was wildly popular. And in one thousand nine hundred four and the only time he really run up to that point national because he was the vice presidential nominee under McKinley nineteen hundred but he beat the contender out and Parker. Three hundred and thirty six to one hundred and forty electoral votes and the margin was just enormous. I would say Roosevelt may have at his peak. Been the most popular American presidents since George Washington that people just really liked him they thought he personified American nationalism that his energy has drive he was also daring in Nineteen Zero Nine. He becomes the first president to ride in a car which at that period was fairly daring thing to do. I've always liked the story. That in one thousand nine hundred six Roosevelt was eating breakfast while he was reading. Upton Sinclair's the jungle which has a scene in which a worker falls into a VAT and becomes sausage and Roosevelt was halfway through his breakfast sausage as he read this scene and he promptly sent up a note Create the Food and Drug Administration. Now I don't know that that's totally true but it's always struck me such a wonderfully apocryphal story. That it should be true. Roosevelt was an activist in foreign policy. In one thousand nine hundred five. He forced the Dominican Republic to install an American economic advisor who's really inappropriate purposes the country's financial director running as an economic protectorate nineteen. O Six. He set up a military protectorate in Cuba. He put pressure on Canada. Boundary Dispute Over Alaska. So again he's constantly doing things because he loved the outdoors and because he was part of the progressive reform wing of the Republican Party. He urged Congress to create the Forest Service so that the government would manage their forest reserves in a professional way he developed almost five times as much land as all of his predecessors combined in fact Roosevelt set aside one hundred ninety four million acres by nineteen o seven. He has a real diplomatic quarrel. Because the Japanese government is very angry about anti-japanese sentiment California and he works out what was called the gentlemen's agreement in which effect we would not pass laws against the Japanese but the Japanese government would restrict Japanese immigration. A So a sort of a face-saving win win. Nineteen hundred eight. His handpicked successor succeeded him. And this was one of the sad moments. If you will American Politics William Howard. Taft was a remarkable man physically enormous and had been a very successful governor.

"roosevelt" Discussed on Newt's World
"I want to share with you. The human whirlwind that was Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt was amazing both as an individual and because in some ways he personified the America that was emerging at the beginning of the twentieth century. I find him to be one of the most extraordinary American presidents just because of the sheer range that he was capable of doing here is obviously extraordinarily bright and wrote a very early age a guide to birds in New York state. He wrote a history of the Naval War of eighteen twelve which is still considered a remarkable book and that by the way was done at a very early age I think in his early twenties. So here you've got. This guy who is born. Relatively weak had asthma and really went to work building up. His physical strength became ultimately a cowboy was driven to be successful to be unique and while he was doing all of that he got involved in politics. But it's fascinating because he didn't fit any pattern that you could have imagined on the one hand he was a Roosevelt and therefore in effect part of the aristocracy of that time. The kind of person who went to Harvard the kind of person who had lots of Nice outfits and went to Nice events on the other hand. He was a politician and he was determined to rise in. Politics is a great line where one of his friend says to him. How can you go out to these German and Irish bars and be hanging out with those normal working? People and Roosevelt's response was simply said luck. Power in this city is in those bars. I want to be part of how decisions are made now. You don't need to go to those bars. But then you're always going to be on the outside and always gonNA come to somebody WHO's in the. Bardi at the decision and I want to be in that room. I WanNa do that and Rosanna. Went out at a very early age and began developing a whole series of activities. He was always a reformer. I think it was partly because he's had this edge to him on. The one hand is sort of a puritan in his toughness in his desire to fix things and improve things on the other hand he loved life so much that he just kind of bubbled over and you have to think of him. Almost has a pot on the stove. Where everyday things are coming out of the pot and you have no idea what's going to happen next. So for example at one point he becomes the police commissioner of New York City and he decides he'll actually enforce the law and the law said the. You couldn't have bars and saloons open on Sunday. So he closed them well. People were enraged because he was violating the way in which they had historically operated and he said well if you want them open change the law but as long as I'm the police commissioner we're closing at which point of course. They fired him because they didn't want to get involved in this and he had a certain lack of common sense in that sense that he was so driven that again and again he would do things with your tape people. He was very active in the Republican Party. And in fact in the election of eighteen ninety six it is Roosevelt and the mayor of Syracuse. Who come up with the best argument against William Jennings Bryan and argument. Which is then picked up by William. Mckinley and McKinley promptly won the elections over. One gives Roseau appointments the number two person in the Navy Department and one weekend. The Secretary of the Navy happens to be gone and Roosevelt on his own. Hook sends out a note saying that he wants. The American Fleet Undo. Each of that point was sitting in Hong Kong and he wants them to go to Manila now. He had no authority to do that. He just did it and luckily for us. When the Spanish American war broke out the American fleet was ready to defeat. The Spanish and the battle of Manila Bay on Roosevelt was heroic. Even though he had totally exceeded his authority before that his wife who he adored had died he was very depressed and he went out to the DAKOTAS. Border Ranch became a genuine rancher again. Remember the guy who starts in life sort of weak physically builds himself up becomes a boxer becomes a writer ends up now leaving behind all of his social friends all of the Harvard connections in his out there ranching and having a great time and recovering from the death of his wife and a one point actually helps arrest several rustler's he's genuinely a man of the West and that becomes an advantage to him when the war breaks out was Spain because he organizes well recalled Colonel Roosevelt's rough riders regiment that he pulled together a volunteers teddy's bringing friends of his from the DAKOTAS. Who are showing up native Americans cowboys and the New York Polo Club is sending people. Because after all it's Theodore Roosevelt so he is blending together these very elegant Ivy League Polo players and these very inelegant cowboys and native Americans into the rough riders. And they actually end up getting along very well and end up charging up San Juan Hill although technically wasn't San Juan Hill but his Kennel Hill towards the San Juan Heights. But everybody at the time said Oh San Juan Hill is. Somebody once said gift to choose. Between fact and legend print the Legend so Roosevelt comes home having led this heroic charge up the hill and he's a genuine war hero.

"So. I'm this goodwill tour. Alice traveled leveled with a large group. There was secretary of war. William Howard Taft Twenty. Three Congressmen and seven senators. Alice made headlines everywhere she he went in part because of her wild behaviour which continued on the road. She said a firecracker on the train on the first leg of the trip from Washington to San Francisco. She fired her a pistol from the train as well aiming at Telegraph Poles as they passed them. I read one account that suggested that she kind of wrote it off as well as the fourth of July. This is how I'm celebrating when the light firecrackers inside a tree seems foolish ours. Don't do it. And as well as the welcoming gays of the press because they really did just follow her everywhere she also caught the eye of Representative Nicholas Longworth Cincinnati. Taft was apparently beside himself trying to serve as a chaperone and keep Alice in this representative apart because this man was fifteen years his her senior but eventually Shauwie. Taft just gave up. I was like I can't control the situation the following year. Alice actually married Longworth. who was a notoriously womanizing drinker and their ceremony was very lavish at the White House and it was front page news? This wedding took place on February seventeenth. Nineteen Ninety six and four. Alice is it represented a break for freedom. She no longer had to live with her stepmother. And according to the account of biographers Stacey cordery when Edith said farewell to Alice Louis after the wedding her parting words. Were I want you to know. I'm glad to see leave. You have never been anything but trouble. So after a honeymoon tune in Cuba Alison Nicholas settled into married life together and while it was not exactly the conventional romantic remarriage. It sort of worked for the two of them They weren't really love so much as they were comfortable with one. Another presumably they were drawn together because they were both sort of these big extreme partying personalities And they both remained the people that they were before they said their vows so there was some head butting. They're wild times and there was some infidelity on both sides of that equation when her father's time in the White House ended in nineteen. Oh nine alice allegedly buried a Voodoo doll of the new first lady. Nellie taft in the lawn before for the new president moved in or that and also for her very public criticism of the tafs. Alice was banned from the White House where they are tenure. There there are several times. She's not welcome in the White House. a few years later the longworth marriage would really be tested when Teddy. Roosevelt went toe to toe with taft in a political battle the bigger issue for Alison Nicholas is extra. Marital dalliances was that her husband supported William Liam Taft in the nineteen twelve campaign against her father's newly formed progressive. Bull Moose Party. She had actually advised her father against this move but she remained in stalwartly loyal to him even when he disregarded her advice and she also opted to appear in her husband's home district of Cincinnati with Hiram Johnson. Her father's here's vice presidential running mate instead of with her husband on his campaign and Longworth lost that election which Allah sometimes took credit for Even though he he did end up getting reelected a couple of years later but Alison Nicholas did manage to survive the upheaval Their marriage did through through that. Ah Disastrous very rocky. Nineteen twelve election cycle. Their marriage remained intact although politically. It was pretty distant at that point. They weren't sort of the same mind. Signed in any way to add insult to injury. The nineteen twelve presidential election went through Democrat. Woodrow Wilson due in part to the split in the loyalties of the Republican Looking Party between Taft and Roosevelt. So just as Alice had been vocally. Critical of Taft. She also vocally criticized Wilson and in some ways even more so oh she was once again banned from the White House after publicly. Making course comments about the president not so long after this Teddy Roosevelt died in his sleep. It was in January on January six of nineteen nineteen. He was sixty at this point and had a coronary. Embolism and at that point. Point Wilson had already proposed the League of Nations in his nineteen eighteen speech before Congress as part of his fourteen points plan. Roosevelt had hated hated that an intern so Dallas because she pretty much always followed her father's political leanings and she rallied very hard against the US becoming a member of the League of Nations After her father died and that the League did formerly form Insp- Geneva Switzerland in nineteen twenty so teddy's eldest daughter basically weekly used every single scrap of influence she had to sway politicians in Washington. DC against the idea of joining the League and whether it was her efforts are not the the US never became a member there in the nineteen twenties. Alice started an affair with the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Senator William Borough of Idaho the two of them bonded over their shared admiration of her late father and their love of literature. She in the senator would send letters to one another and they were deeply Leeann love as their affair became less and less of a secret. Alice was dubbed Aurora. Bora alice by the press amd gossip circles and in one thousand nine hundred thousand five. Alyssa's has been Nicholas. Longworth became speaker of the House and that same year. They also welcomed their one and only child. Paulina into the world. World and Longworth was completely excited about this baby and doted on her. Even though the odds are that the infant wasn't fact fathered by Alyssa's Paramore Bora and that Nicholas actually knew that in a bittersweet sort of coincidence pulling away was born on February fourteenth which of course is Valentine's Day but was also the the same day that Alice's mother and grandmother had died many years prior also in one thousand nine hundred thousand five. Alice Nicholas moved into their home at two thousand nine on Massachusetts Avenue northwest which is just west of Dupont circle. Alice would live there for the rest of her life. And the house which was built in eighteen eighty one would serve as a home base for the first daughters. Many famed Social events that she would host for the next six decades In one thousand nine hundred eighty one. Alyssa's has been Nicholas. Alice Longworth died and unfortunately he didn't really leave much behind in terms of finances for his widow. His family money was almost entirely gone and while Oh her lover. William burroughs lived another nine years. It doesn't appear that he really helped his mistress out financially two years after her husband's death Alice published her memoirs ars crowded hours in an effort to make some money and this was also the year that Franklin Delano Roosevelt took office. So just in case you don't know the scoop coop. Some people think that the he was much closer much more closely related to Teddy Roosevelt than he actually was Theodore Roosevelt An. FDR only distant related. Did they were fourth cousins once removed. I've also seen him listed as fifth cousins so Your command of genealogy and how that works may affect your perception of that FDR's wife. Eleanor however was actually much more closely related to the former president because Theodore Roosevelt had been her uncle Alice was was really pretty cutting when it came to Franklin Eleanor. She wants described Franklin Roosevelt as one third and two thirds eleanor. Alice apparently he would do. UNFLATTERING IMITATIONS OF ELEANOR AT tea parties.

That just boils down to WHO A lot of descriptions of kind of petty arguments so that is the best for a whole episode but there were a lot of arguments in a lot of nitpicking. It was one one of those things where like they would gossip to friends about one another and kind of circulate really insulting things You Know Oh it was a pretty catty situation in nineteen thirty eight.

Although it never sold Her social engagements became the invite in in Washington and Alice was pretty open about her opinions both political and social kind of used all of her social events as opportunities to broadcast.

I looked at it and several other pieces. It is one of the things with Alice. Is that a lot of what you're we're getting is stories that were retold by family members and friends. So it's possible that she didn't say initially but she certainly. Everyone credits her with that one. She was nicknamed the second Washington monument because she managed to amass quite a bit of social power in the US capital and she parlayed played into some political influence. And how much so is still a bit of debate. How much influence? She really had politically but she certainly was.

Alice also died of bright's disease misses a kidney condition that is characterized by high concentrations. Some traces of protein in the urine she'd been the living with bright's disease for quite some time but her pregnancy had complicated the condition and weakened her overall level level of of Health And as you can imagine that double loss to lose a parent in your spouse within about four hours Really Devastated Roosevelt. Who is only twenty five at the time and he wanted quite plainly to escape all reminders of this loss? He even went so far as forbid the mention mention of his wife. Alice's name and his grief continued to burden him and by the end of eighteen eighty four he decided to can appear down his involvement in politics. Ed Politics and to go west for a while. So he moved out to the Dakota territories and he'd spent time there before We talk about that if we due Teddy Roosevelt episode and he established alcorn ranch there for a life that he wanted to kind of live in isolation of ranching he also worked as a sheriff and he did not not take the infant alice with him who was usually called baby Lee presumably because the name Alice which was given name Caused House Roosevelt. So much pain so he left baby Lee in New York. She stayed with Roosevelt Sister Anna. who was called Daime and eventually Alice called her Antibi- he wasn't totally absent as a father though there were several times during the next two years where his work brought him back east and he would spend time with the baby? Maybe during these trips but bay me was her primary parent during this period of baby. Lee's life in June of eighteen eighty. Six Alice's father was ready to resume life in New York the home that he contracted to be built just after. His wife's death was completed and he resumed his role. As Alice's this is father full-time as they moved into their Oyster Bay. Long Island House. In December of eighteen eighty six theodore roosevelt remarried and his new bride was edith's Carro who had been his childhood sweetheart. Edith M Teddy would have five children together. Roosevelt's Ran for vice president on the ticket with William McKinley in eighteen. Ninety six the pair was reelected for a second term but then on September six of nineteen o one McKinley was shot by anarchist. Leeann Leeann Cho- Gosh At the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo New York. Eight days later the president died from his wounds and Roosevelt. Roosevelt's having been vice president became president when the Roosevelt's moved into the White House in one thousand nine hundred one. Alice was seventeen and she pretty much immediately. It became a celebrity. She was known for her wild antics and rebellious behavior. She was a party girl to rival any celebrity today and she had started to appear are in gossip magazines back when she was sixteen. She basically stayed there for her father's entire time in office. Yeah One Biographer made a comment that all edith and teddy needed to do to know what Alice had been up to the night before was to open the morning paper because her antics were such a Great drawers of readers. That papers would put them on the front page even sometimes pushing out much bigger and more important news Alice smoked which you know. Free Young Lady Not so delightful And when her father forbid her to do so under his roof she just moved that habit outside and so she would start sitting on the white the house roof to enjoy cigarettes. She also played poker and she bet on horses. She was sort of famously photographed placing bed at one point. She would ride in cars with men and without chaperones She wore pants on occasion. Which of course was very unladylike at that time and she would raise her own car through the streets of Washington she would also barge in on meetings at the White House seemingly with causing trouble as the only reason for having done that she claimed to be a pagans fly in the face of her very religious stepmother that mother she called Christianity Voodoo two kind of rile her up she had a pet snake named emily? Spinach carry it around the House with her and evens parties there are some accounts that say it was a boa constrictor but others say it was a garter snake. I can hardly imagine to less similar snakes snakes. Yeah I the snake story is one that It gets told again because they are often. biographers used firsthand first hand accounts from friends and relatives. that like even in your social group there are stories that have grown out of you know their original proportions. And so we really don't have a sense of the snake situation and what the realities were of it. Some will say. She showed up at one party with a huge Boa constrictor on her neck. Other stations. Carry the In her pocket all the time and I when I was relaying this to some friends last night we were talking about it. They thought like the way a child will pick up a weird animal. I put it in their pocket. Might no she was like eighteen and nineteen. At this point she was just carting around a snake for entertainment The press dubbed her Princess Alice so her favorite color for example was a grayish blue and that became very very trendy it was called. Alice blue She basically you know was celebrity icon at this point in her father. The president is often quoted as saying I can either run the country or I can attend to Alice but I cannot possibly do. Both a friend of the family went said that she was quote like a young wild animal that had been put into good close and in one thousand nine hundred five so several years into their time at the White House she served as a goodwill ambassador travelling to Asia with a group of Congressmen and this is the first time a first daughter had taken on such a duty in this trip which was dubbed the imperial crews It's entirely likely that President Roosevelt really looked at this mission. Action is a way to keep his troublesome eldest daughter out of his hair for a little while. Feel like that's a sitcom waiting to happen And we're going to get into the details of that trip because some wacky things happened there but before we do. Do you want to pause for word from a sponsor. Let's do that..
