"Right Steve Back to the show. Thomas Jefferson Christopher Columbus Robert de Lee. Statues are either coming down or being. Let's say added to improved instead of vandalize. News is breaking the Teddy. Roosevelt is being taken off the steps of the natural history. Museum, and just now this morning as we record Andrew, Jackson trumps favorite president was set upon near the White House provoking trump to threaten. Long jail terms right now joined by slate veteran in New, York Times columnist Jim. L. Buoy. Hey, welcome back to the PODCAST. Hello, thank you for having me. Yeah, it's great to have you back. you opened your recent column about the statues with the following sentence and I'd love to have you explicatives a little more for our listeners. It doesn't necessarily follow that a nationwide protests over police brutality would. For some become a reason to take action against confederate statues and other controversial monuments. You go on to explain why it does follow away. Yeah I mean if if you're looking at these protests super narrowly than you know Statue of Liberty League doesn't really have much to do with police brutality, but I think if you're looking at these protests thematically that they're not simply about George Floyd, but they're. They're not even simply about. Black lives matters as a larger movement, but they're very much about trying to challenge. A version of American history, trying to challenge a Sort of conception of American life that is narrow and exclusive, and does not have room for black. Is Not have room for native Americans does not have room for all sorts of groups than yeah. Robert de Lis that she was a totally natural target. Right because those monuments don't. They're not history right? They don't. They don't educate anyone anything. They're very much memorial ization and their immoral ization of people for causes that we rightfully see as wrong and evil and with no place in the public sphere. And as you point out that there, there is a history to these statues it doesn't have to do with the founding of the civil war has everything to do with windows statues were erected and put into the public spaces that they're now in there. And when you know that history, you know that they're about the birthright privilege of whites, especially over public spaces in this country. Right so you mentioned that the Teddy Roosevelt? Statute that has been removed from a museum is the American. Museum, but like right, you look at statue. In it's not. The statue isn't of Teddy Roosevelt. conservationist. It's not a statue of Teddy Roosevelt. The A trust buster right like it's a statue of Teddy Roosevelt on a horse, leading in submissive, pose a native American in a black person. It's like very clearly. The Statue of Teddy Roosevelt the imperialist who believe that whites had sort of we're going to dominate the world and part of his party's ideology that this was well and good. And it's. Good to take them statue. That's like those are not values. We want to honor into when I see these conversations claims this is some kind of attack on history it just it just doesn't Jive, and that's studying aside..

"Search for the treasure kind of turns them against each other, so yeah I mean that's just two of the movies that I mentioned. There's the bucket list is. There's the didactic side, but there's so much more than I'm sure that we'll get to. There's moments when a flat out war movie, and of course there's the the flashback sequences and the structure that will get into the temporal zones that runs it right. Julia and as I understand it in the development phase of the movie. It was two separate scripts. It was a script. With white protagonists away more straightforward adventure epic, it was set as I understand it to be directed by Oliver Stone about going back into the jungle for treasurer, and it was combined with a script written by Spike Lee and writing partner about the agonizing subject of black servicemen and Vietnam, and though the legacy of that both the experience of it in flashbacks as Dana, says at the time and the experienced sense on this, you know absolutely tormented psyches of specifically black. Men who fought in the war? What you make of it? Did it cohere here for you. What would you make of it as a film? I really loved this movie although it is like A. Treasure chest stuffed full with like too many things, the wrong shapes and you can't really figure how they all fit into it but I hadn't experience watching it that I almost never have watching anything right now, which is like the second started I was like I'm putting down my phone. Like an I you know I mean in general. I tried to not be looking. Looking other stuff while I watch staff. especially the stuff we talk about here that I usually have to like forcibly. Put my phone in another room to avoid the lake to screen like. Let me just see what's happening twitter and I just felt compelled by it for all its shaggy nece in its range Eunice, and it's twenty different things in the thing quality. I don't know I just wanted to be its company and I wanted to be in its vision, and maybe it's just that at this particular moment in history. Having a good. Sit Down with Spike Lee and letting him remix some history and some cinematic history for you felt like a really valuable way to spend my time but I felt very compelled by it for all that it Structurally is probably not what you would like. Teach in a screenwriting course. Yeah I I come out I. Think we're we're you do Julia? It's I mean it's a spike Lee movie so it is Shaggy Didactic melodramatic in this instance, quite violent but you know at the heart of it. All are these I think is are these performances as yoked to lease vision, and especially there's delroy. Lindo as Paul and the movie in some sense is about. The, broken mind of polly, he's the one of the four. WHO's most? Who Psyche is most destroyed by the effects of having fought in the war, and as a consequence he's. Deeply paranoid about everything that's happening around him, and as his son indicates play Jonathan Major, as a son indicates you know his mind is really legitimately slipping, and the tragedy of the movie is that he's actually right right that his paranoia.

The Teddy Bear!
"Early in the year of Nineteen O one. The manager of the Bronx Zoo in New York got a very unusual letter. The typewritten note was dated January. Second Gentleman I have a small named Jonathan Edwards and we find we do not have the accommodations to keep him so I should like to present him to the Bronx Zoological Gardens. Can you send someone out here to tend to his shipment then written by hand next to this is a further question? I think it says or shall I ship him myself but it's hard to read the messy scribbled handwriting in any case the letter is signed yours. Truly t roosevelt. Now as you might have guessed that T- Roosevelt is Theodore Roosevelt. A man who would soon unexpectedly find himself as the president of the United States. But that probably wasn't the first thing that jumped out to William Hornets manager of the Bronx Zoo. His thoughts were probably something like bear a bear a pet bear in New York. Of course you don't have any accommodations to keep them. Who Does he's a bear and wait. Did you say his name is Jonathan Edwards? Were kind of name. Is that for a bear name. A bear poo or growly or berry made even snuggles. If he's got the right personality but Jonathan Edwards Kinda Weirdo. Oh right teddy. Roosevelt Theodore you see Theodore. Roosevelt had just finished his duty. As governor of New York State that term ended on December thirty first and on that upcoming March fourth he would be sworn in as vice president of the United States in the time between governing and vice president and it seems teddy him. The idol was trying to take care of some personal matters which included but were not limited to a live bear rather than ask the million questions that were surely. On the zookeepers. Mind William Hornets. Just said yes. It was Teddy Roosevelt after all right right but Hornets did ask where on earth the bear came from soon to be vice president. Roosevelt had already moved on to other matters because his reply was short. And Sweet. My dear Mr Hornets. The back came from West Virginia. Very Truly Theodore Roosevelt's. Let's not a lot of information from a man who could be pretty verbose that means he talked a lot and he also wrote a lot dude wrote thirty five books in his lifetime over one hundred and fifty thousand letters to people so you'd think he could have offered a bit more explanation as to what he was doing with a bear at his house a few months prior he did elaborate a bit more in one of those one hundred and fifty thousand letters that he wrote to a friend. He told his pal that some supporters in West Virginia had presented the bear to him as a gift. And well. You can't say no to a gift especially a Harry. One was sharp teeth honestly. A pet bear wasn't entirely off the Charts the Roosevelt while Jonathan Edwards. The bear would eventually go to live in the Bronx Zoo. It might not have felt that much different. From the Roosevelt home to the creature he would have been more than us to being surrounded by a mess of animals. And I'm not talking about the six Roosevelt kids running around the home. I'm talking about all of their pets. The list of Roosevelt family pets goes on and on there was a lizard named bill and a pig named MoD a badger named Josefa and a blue macaw named Eli Gail Barron. Sprinkle was a hen and Peter was of course a rabbit. There are also a whole bunch of Guinea pigs with names. That don't disappoint. They were called Admiral. Dewey Dr Johnson Bishop Tone Fighting Bob Evans and Father O'Grady. As if that weren't enough there was also a one. Legged Rooster Hyena a pony and my favorite a Green Garter. Snake named Emily Spinach. As you can see the Roosevelt's took their pets and their pet names quite seriously. Animal hijinks and Shenanigans were very common among the six Roosevelt kids once when brother. Archie was sick in bed. His siblings hatched a scheme to cheer him up. They lead their pony up the stairs to his room to surprise him which it certainly did but the pony was more excited to see his reflection in a bedroom mirror so much so that he would not leave and then there was the time that Quinton burst into his father's office at the time. Teddy Theodore Right. Sorry Theodore was in the middle of an important closed-door meeting with senators and other politicians closed doors. Don't always mean much to a kid with animals in his pockets and Quinton didn't think twice about interrupting the meeting. The men kindly obliged pause the meeting while the boy threw his arms around his beloved father who Shirley laughed proudly and started to shoot the boy away but Quinton had a surprise. The boy pulled four snakes out of his pocket and place them on the table in the middle of the room. Apparently these men did not have a similar menagerie of animals in their own households because these powerful yet easily frightened men jumped up like popcorn scrambled to the edge of the room. Faster than Greece geese it was surely a funny moment for the Roosevelt's so as we've said Jonathan Edwards would live his days in the Bronx Zoo but he wasn't the only fateful bear in Teddy's life. Okay he wasn't the only fateful bear in Theodore's life no there was another. Roosevelt was sworn in as vice president and March of nineteen o one and six months later in September. He was president of the United States. It wasn't supposed to happen that way. But President William McKinley was assassinated while attending the world's bear in Buffalo New York. Theodore Roosevelt took his place and made history in many ways. Theatre was an extremely energetic. Man Some say he had a photographic memory because he could do things like perfectly recite poems that he had read and not seen again for decades. He read books nearly every day. Some people saw him read two or three pages a minute. He was very proud of his speed reading skills but it wasn't just learning that he engaged in Roosevelt loved the outdoors. In fact as a president he set aside two hundred thirty million acres of land to protect and save so that Americans for many generations could enjoy these forests parks and Animal Sanctuaries Theodore love to spend time in nature himself. He loved to horseback ride and he was also an avid hunter in November of Nineteen. O Two just after his first full year as president. He made a hunting trip to Mississippi on invitation. From the governor of the state there were several other people in the party and before long the president was the only one who had not shot a bear. This was embarrassing for the governor. How could they leave? Teddy out right right right with the feodor so anyway. In an effort to guarantee success for the president's bear hunting trip the guides devised an unfortunate and unkind plan that involved tying a bear to a tree for Roosevelt to shoot when he discovered the creature in such a state. Roosevelt was disgusted and refuse to shoot. What could have been forgotten moment soon? Captured the American imagination and then gave birth to one of the most common items found in kids rooms. All around the world still today. A cartoonist was inspired by the story and sketched an image of Roosevelt refusing to shoot the bear the cartoon ran in the Washington Post which was a major newspaper in it immediately connected Roosevelt to bears in the minds of Americans probably most of whom never even realized that he had a pet bear in New York for a while. One American who saw this was a candy shop owner from Brooklyn New York named Morris Victim. It began with two soft cuddly stuffed toy bears that he and his wife Rose had made. He stuck those bears in the window of his candy shop and called them Teddy bears before long he spent all of his time making those and even started a toy company that would live on for decades. So whether you knew it or not. That teddy bear in your bedroom is named after a president who didn't even like being called Teddy.

"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.

"The day. This decision was made and he. He said when he was told about it. Do you realize? There's only one heartbeat between the damned capital on the White House. And in fact, McKinley was shot and died. And here you are in nineteen o one with Theodore Roosevelt hasn't 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 on 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 Roseau began to become much better known than 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 hitting him on that side of his head, and he would do stuff like this all the time. He was an archer. He was one hunter. 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 shoot 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 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 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. Remember 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 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. Small things it's important to remember that the 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. 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. An 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 nineteen, 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, Alton, 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, nineteen, thousand nine. He becomes the first president to ride in a car, which at that.
"teddy 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. Next the anti-corruption candidate Roselle becomes governor of New York. Then Vice President of the United States..

The Grand Canyon
"Have you ever heard of the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is the Whitest Canyon in the world and located in Arizona which also happens to be my home state. It's also considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The Grand Canyon is two hundred seventy seven miles long up to eighteen miles wide in over six thousand feet deep in places. It's very colorful a combination of reds browns whites and many other colors because each of the different layers or strata were formed at different times during the Earth's history. The Earth is very very old so the Grand Canyon is made up of different rocks from its two billion year old history early on the Grand Canyon was actually a mountain which overtime sunk down until it was flat. Then is the earth shifted. It became a canyon and over a very long period was even underwater. Eventually a river started flowing through the Canyon which is now known as the Colorado River. The water in the river was full of rocks. So over. Millions of years the river acted like sandpaper. Shaving down the canyon this is called erosion today. When you look at the Grand Canyon you can see the different layers in it similar to a layered cake. Some of the layers are white. Limestone other layers are filled with shells from was underwater and the upper layers are dark and reformed by a volcano after the Grand Canyon was formed into what it looks like today around three thousand years ago native people who now call the ancestral publians live near the Grand Canyon. They built homes out of stone and farmed corn squash and beans. They made carvings and paintings on Canyon walls which is one way we know they live there. Another group who lived there were called the co Nina for the ancestors of the modern Yuma Havasu Pie and who a lot by people who still live around the Grand Canyon. The native people call the Grand Canyon. Cab which means mountain on its side. The ancient people believed the Grand Canyon was a holy place and often visited for miles around to experience. It's wonder after Europeans discovered the new World Francisco Vasquez Coronado and a group of Spanish explorers were in the area. Searching for the fabled seven cities of Cipolla in fifteen forty Coronado ordered captain Garcia Lopez de Cardenas and. His soldiers to explore the area they and their Hopi native guides where the first European to see the wonders of the Grand Canyon. They were amazed at its size and fastness. Two hundred years passed until another European visited the canyon in seventeen seventy six to Spanish priests Francisco Dominguez and Sylvester de Escalate into explored southern Utah and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the eighteen fifties. They were followed. By Jacob Hamlin a Mormon explorer sent by Brigham Young to find a way to cross the river. They made friends with the WHO a lot by tribe and found the crossing discovered by the Spanish priests which later became Lee's ferry. A theory is a place where a flat boat helps wagons and people cross the river then in eighteen sixty nine major John. Wesley Powell led the first expedition down into the Canyon. He had set out to explore the Colorado River and the Canyon. They wrote down the river on a boat and survived the dangerous rapids and finally ended up in what is now known as MOAB UTAH. John Wesley Powell later became famous for the founding of the Boy Scouts of America. In one thousand nine hundred three. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the Grand Canyon and marveled at its beauty. Teddy Roosevelt was known for his love of nature and spent much of his time outdoors in the Grand Canyon. He did everything he could to help. Preserve its natural. Wonder he worked to make it a national monument and believe places like the Grand Canyon should be preserved so people all over the world can enjoy it. All Roosevelt was president. He formed the National Parks Association to help. Save places like the Grand Canyon today. The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous places to visit in the world with about five million visitors every year. Who come from all over to see and explore it. Most people just come to look out over the vast canyon. I've been there a few times with my family. It's about a four hour. Drive from US where we live near Phoenix Arizona. The last time I went we brought our foreign kids who also looked out over it in awe. We had to hold them close to us because the canyon is a very steep drop below which made us very nervous. When I was in high school our family and a group of other families hiked down into the part of the canyon known as Havasu Pie. We drove there early in the morning and had all of our camping gear and food loaded onto the back of mules. Then we hiked about four hours down into the Canyon at the bottom of the trail. The huge picturesque Havasu falls. You can swim at the falls. Jump off cliffs and hike further into see and swim in the waterfalls. Our trip was very fun but took a turn for the worse when one of the days I slept on Iraq and twisted my ankle pretty bad the next day we were supposed to hike out so my close friend. I got up early and started hiking. I live most of the way. Even up the steep switch-backs. It was a rough hike out but the waterfalls and swimming holes made it worth it anyway along with hiking people take helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon love to raft the Wild Colorado River. They also take horseback tours down into the Canyon. And it's very popular. Hike it from Rim Durham. By sisters in their friends. Do this recently. Another main attraction is the Grand Canyon. Skywalk which lets you walk on a glass bottom path out over the canyon so you can look at the drop far

"His reforms in conservation he went after US steel. I think he also apologized to the Colombian government for helping Panama pull off a COOSA. The Panama Canal can happen. He was just furious furious and he really hated. Woodrow Wilson like so much his entrance into the nineteen twelve presidential races. What led to Woodrow Wilson? Becoming President in the Nita's hated Woodrow Wilson. For being a pacifist. So you know he just was was bitter bitter so bitter so mad he just really wanted to be president you know. He always thought that he could do a better job. And I mean maybe he could have. Yeah well I liked that you refer in one of your shows to his political style as big stick energy which I thought was really funny. Feel like they've belongs t shirts. I can't take credit for that. My researcher Michael Saw Guerrero Came up with that and he was like please argues that Michael Wins a Nobel along the way right yes He was the first American to win a Nobel Prize of any kind And it was partly for a his mediation between the Japanese and the Russians during the Russo Japanese war which some people called zero because it was like an early Mecca mechanized war and they were killing each other in huge numbers. It had the potential to really sort of unsettle things in the Pacific and so he stepped in and you know was sort of a neutral mediator sort of not. There's this one great scene where he calls the Russian diplomat over to Sagamore Hill. To tell him how he thinks he should negotiate and he's playing tennis and he doesn't stop playing tennis while he's talking to the Russian diplomat like embrace from the game. He comes over and he says well. Here's what I think you should do. Here's what I'd recommend. And then he goes back to China and then he comes back and this went on for like ninety minutes can have to imagine what the Russian diplomat was thinking. He was like guys crazy. But you know that was. That was his style. So I do want to hear anything about that Dr seuss stories do so. I can't remember the exact date I feel like. It was nineteen eighteen but Theodore Roosevelt's went to this small town Where he was going to hand out awards to boy scouts who had sold a thousand dollars worth of war bonds and the Geisel Aka. Dr Susan was one of those boys. All the boys are standing up on stage. There are ten of them only has nine medals. Somebody messed up and so you know. He's penny medals on the lapels of all these kids and he gets to theodor geisel medal as. What's this boy doing here? The Boy Scouts Baxter. Just didn't say anything he just like ran guys l. off stage and then apparently that gave Dr Seuss stagefright for the rest of his life. That's incredible now horrifying. I mean like it. It makes sense. It would be so humiliating and you know it wasn't his fault wasn't tr's fault. It was just the thing that happened and And there were implication so tell me how have you been inspired by Teddy Roosevelt to change your life in any way or or have you taken any sort of inspiration from all these stories? I really WANNA try to be more productive and sort of block out my time. Like I'm a big believer in a to do list. Apparently that's not enough. That doesn't help you be productive enough so I think in twenty twenty. I'm going to start blocking out my time And seeing how how that goes or maybe I'll take up judo. We'll see I like that for no carrying a badger around or no. No no no I mean I my cats there about all I can handle pearl kind of looks like a Badger so fee per Woolsey Badger so adorable cat so cute. Tell everyone where they can find the show and so they should start with. Well I mean I personally think you should start from. Tr versus weakness which is the first one because it lays the groundwork for everything that comes next but in terms of my favorite tier versus time is a big one I like tr versus language. Just because it gets into the whole simplified spelling debacle which is one of my favorite stories of all time. Terrorists versus corruption is really fun. 'cause I think you get a really good sense of the unusual style. He used to take on corruption. They're all kind of close to my heart to be honest and it's crazy everything is involved in from like everything football and there's so much we couldn't even get into you know like. I go forever but you know every time I said. Let's add an episode. Oh no no no no no dylan. We're like Erin you're crazy stopping services. Nature's they're all fun funding their own ways and I think what's I can't choose but you know I think what's what's good about. This is that you read the biographies about Tr. And everybody kind of focuses on the thing that they want to focus on doing a podcast like this in this format has kind of allowed us to drop in and out of his life to feature different things and I think it's actually allowed us to get into some of the not so great stuff you know and explore that in a way that I hope is enlightening and thoughtful. So you know. We'll see well respond to that. It's a really excellent series and really really fun and you can get history versus mental floss everywhere from Iheart spotify Stitcher to wherever you get your podcast but What's next for the series? So we are looking at an explorer for the second season. I don't WanNa say who owns boil it but not the explorer. You're probably thinking of So that's fun and then for the third season I have an author. I'd like to feature awesome and we'll see and there's kind of a Theodore Roosevelt connection to all to both of those Nice I mean yeah like he was involved in literally everything Eric. Rt thank you so much for being here. That's part genius this week. We'll be back next week with an episode on elevators. I think it's going to be great. I promise and in the meantime from will gave Lola me. Thanks so much for listening.
Modern Time Slips
"Today. Something a little bit different on this podcast. Generally science is acknowledged as something. Let's say a discovery of something and it can be replicated and therefore it is based in scientific fact and the pseudoscience is usually explained away as a simple single phenomena that can't be captured reproduced. So I have on this. PODCAST is a series of modern day. A or modern time time slips began with a white Ford pickup that pulled up to a cattle pasture near Pona City City Oklahoma. This was early in the fall of Nineteen seventy-one if stopped at the gate. Carl Marc and Gordon worked for cattle feed distributor. Were sent to this remote area to pick up a theater but they found their has kept them silent for forty one years. Carl says we opened the gate. which had barb orb wire with no locks and we entered? We went onto the property which was covered with grass up to in some cases over the truck. They drove through grass. Ask to the tank that sat close to Red Barn and got Outta the truck. We realize the tank was almost half full and too heavy to load. Carl said we. We decided to leave and drove around a Red Barn and there. We saw a large two story White House with no lights in front of us. The trio drove back to the cattle feed company and told the boss. He said he'd drained the tank and they could pick it up tomorrow. Carl says we went back to the location to retrieve the a tank the next night he said this time we decided to go through the old white big house on the hill and we brought our flashlights and shotguns. Just in case they they drove onto the property over the past. They've made through the day before they loaded the tank then they pulled around the bar toward the house what they saw burned into their memories. It was no longer there.

Where Did Mothers Day Come From?
"They were wrapping up the story on the origins of mother's day. We absolutely should celebrate mothers everywhere. So to all the moms out there listening. We hope you have a really fantastic day today for a lot of people though mother's day is also a pretty tough day for a lot of different reasons. And that group of people include the founder of mother's day herself, Anna Jarvis she successfully established a national holiday only to fight against those who celebrated in a way, she didn't like here's her story. When Jarvis was just twelve years old her mother closed her Sunday school lesson with a prayer that someone would one day found a Memorial Day to commemorate mothers for the match Maginness service. She renders to humanity Dervis remembered that prayer. For the rest of her life and in nineteen oh seven two years after her mother's death. Jarvis began to lobby for a national holiday in her mother's honor. She wrote thousands of letters to influential people, including teddy Roosevelt, William Jennings, Bryan. And Mark Twain in early nineteen o eight the Senate rejected her mother's day resolution, but she wouldn't be deterred on may tenth nineteen o. Eight Jarvis spoke at the first official mother's day services. One at her childhood church in Grafton, West Virginia and another at a sold out venue in Philadelphia her idea caught on like wildfire, at least unofficially and over the next few years. The majority of states in the US held mother's day celebrations that wasn't by accident. Either. Germans petition to state governors for official mother's day proclamations every single year she asked people to observe the day by visiting or at least writing to their mothers and wearing a white carnation. She said quote. Live this day, as your mother would have you live it, unquote. Finally, the tide had turned the US government officially designated mother's day as a national holiday in nineteen fourteen. And that's when things got complicated. Jarvis became territorial over her holiday copyrighting her own photograph trademarking, the mother's day seal and incorporating herself as the mother's day international association. She became so consumed with her life's achievement that she quit her job. She needed the extra time she spent the rest of her life fighting tooth and nail against anyone who would corrupt her vision. This included the floral end greeting card industries at one point. She scrapped. The white carnation is the holiday is official emblem to do away with profiteering tradesmen, and she also fought against charities like the golden rule foundation which was a fund for needy. Mothers and children that she accused of commercializing mother's day to line. It's pockets Jarvis even rallied. Against the US postal service when it issued a commemorative mother's day stamp. It's reported that at her peak she had thirty three mother's day related lawsuits, pending. She lived as a recluse for the last decade of her life and was eventually committed to a Senate Terry him where she died alone and penniless, and perhaps saddest of all having never become a mother herself. There are a lot of morals to this sad story. But we think this is the most important call your
A look at the Trump presidency
"Is the pow that Donald Trump tests. I think what Donald Trump is testing. Now is that he's been able to get the Republicans in congress to do the things that they wanted to do, and perhaps he is well, the tax cut the deregulation, the supreme court appointments, but he's testing a power. That the public themselves in the end are the ones that are the big biggest check on the congress and on the courts and on the presidency and right now the approval rating of Donald Trump is is the lowest any president has been. And I think it's in part not because he hasn't accomplished many of the things that a lot of people feel are good. But because there has been a toxic culture created people feel anxious people feel the moorings are being undone that traditions norms are being violated and after a while the people will speak. I mean, they spoke pretty strongly in the midterm elections. I'm even though he kept the Senate which most people assumed he would given the structural balance. The Senate had he lost pretty big in the house. And and he hasn't accepted the loss really in some ways. Which is a problem. If he did he might say, how can I change now? So that I can reach out to the other side. And maybe he will maybe we'll get infrastructure. Maybe we'll get something for the dreamers. Maybe we'll get this criminal Justice reform. And I'm hoping that I'm hoping that that will will make the two sides come together in a better way. I wonder if if you don't reading the midterms wrong, I'm just going to make you flat-out challenge on that won't turn out was high. You could argue his reinvigorates is the electricity. We had happen to democratic stress just into lake on his show not long ago saying yes, Democrats took back the house. But if you look across the races, it doesn't look like the Trump machine is coming to a standstill in any way. Indeed. The take way might be Donald Trump is now definitely gonna go on all things behavioral and run again in twenty twenty rather than this being a great mid Tom's or you show, you're not trading too, much to woods wishful thinking possibly possibly. I might be. I mean, it's hard to predict anything when you know. I like everybody else never assumed that Hillary Clinton wasn't going to win. So it makes you much more vulnerable to making predictions. I think that the most important thing that happened in the midterms, and this has nothing to do with party necessarily is that the fact so many people came out. I mean young people voting five hundred percent more than in the previous midterms more. Women running for election from all sorts of parts of the lives that had never been in politics before. That's that's a really hopeful sign is that thanks to Donald Trump at possibly could be. I mean, I think the interest in politics has been increased because of Donald Trump, and that's a very good thing. Whether or not it produces him again or whether it produces somebody against him when the citizens get awakened. That's when things happen in the country. I mean when I look back at the times when change happened. It was the anti slavery movement that did it all Lincoln said not his leadership alone. It was the progressive movement in the cities and states long before FDR an and teddy Roosevelt became president that allowed that some of the regulations that could deal with the industrial revolution. And of course, it was the civil rights movement that allowed LBJ to do the civil rights Bill in the voting rights Bill. So we need a political revolution in our country. Something's not working well with the system. The congressional lines are being drawn gerrymandering this too much money in politics. There's a sense that as. Teddy Roosevelt said the rock of democracy will break when people in different regions and different parties and different races begin to feel themselves as the other. So somehow that's been happening long before trunk the polarization in the country people in the rural areas feeling cut off from the city's people who are working class people feeling that the elites haven't handled them. Well, they don't have the right educational system. They haven't had mobility those are deep cultural problems that he hasn't created that were there. And so the question the question will be will leader rise that can heal those divisions. And so far, he hasn't healed them. The question will be where does the country go and twenty twenty if such a leader arises, we don't know who that later will be I must ask you about impeachment who spectra of postal impeachment hanging over the presidency. Not least because you have a sort of strong personal echo. Here. Think is a young stone for you route two piece in the new Republic and Johnson entitled how to dump Lyndon Johnson. I understand it. Career impeaching president the autumn of put you off impeaching another will. Well, no what I meant by. That was that. I was hoping this was written in nineteen sixty seven when I became a White House fellow and I'd written an article for the new Republic with a friend of mine, and we were simply saying how to remove Lyndon Johnson. From office was to create a party that would run against him in nineteen sixty eight rather wishful thinking, it would be made up of women minorities poor people and. Opposable strategy fool the Democrats on the left. Do you recognize that I do indeed? But I think that in some ways I think it would be a big mistake for impeachment to start. I mean, the Democrats have to know that whatever Muller comes up with the Senate will not go along with the impeachment. And I think it's much better to just educate the people, let them feel and change their mind about him suppose Muller comes up with obstruction of Justice or even collusion. Then you just let the people absorb that information. It would be a big mistake for them to move in an impeachment direction. It'll just fire the base of Trump, and then he will be able to say this is a witch hunt. So that I think they should just keep their heads down. They should do their investigations, but they should try and get as much done as they can even if it contributes to the benefit of the Republicans to get some of these things pass it'll be good for the country. So that's changing your thinking of fifty years. I think you become a little bit more practical. But no, even then I was wanting them to re unelected him not necessarily impeach him. Fair point just a closing from you what kind of presidency regardless of who runs. Oh gets elected. But what cut presence, you do you think will result from Donald Trump having been in the White House while the question will be does the next president have to have that kind of celebrity entertainment value. So that he becomes a figure who's part of your lives. I mean in some ways if I thought about who could come back now that could most challenge President Trump. It would be teddy Roosevelt because he was a person who people would follow him when he was on stage as he was in center stage. I mean, they said about him. He wanted to be the baby at the baptism and the bride at the wedding and the corpse at the funeral. He hungered for that stage as Trump does. And there's something charismatic about that people are drawn to that. It's like a kid drawn to a circus. And the question will be doing need that person today in our social media entertainment world, or could it be Oprah presidency? That's. Wrecked. How you feel about it? Well, I think not only Oprah. But now, there's also it's a sports stars and movie stars think, oh, I can become president. If this person became president without political experience. I think it's a problem to get into public life without political experience, or at least leadership experience. I mean, I can see a big businessman whose really led hundreds of thousands of people in a company overseas coming in and having had the experience of building a team and all those human qualities, but to just pop in from some other field where you haven't been a leader. But you've simply been a celebrity. I think would be a problem if that's the lesson taken from this doors. Thank you very much. Joining us. Thank
