‘Not on My Watch’: SD Gov. Responds To Suggestions That Mt. Rushmore Could Be Attacked

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem responded Tuesday to talk that Mount Rushmore could soon be threatened by rioters as the nation’s historic monuments continue to be torn down by anarchist groups.

Noem was responding to conservative commentator Ben Shapiro who asked on Twitter, “So, when is our woke historical revisionist priesthood going to insist on blowing up Mount Rushmore?” to which she responded, “Not on my watch.”

On Monday’s airing of The View, host Meghan McCain questioned when the line would be drawn in response to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s decision to remove the Museum of Natural History’s statue of President Theodore Roosevelt, asking if the South Dakota monument would be next.

“The question I have is: How far does this go?” McCain asked. “Are we talking about removing Mount Rushmore if we don’t like our Founding Fathers? Are we talking about removing Robin Williams’s character from Night at the Museum [because] he portrays Teddy Roosevelt.”

President Donald Trump is expected to visit the historic monument on Independence Day, along with thousands of other Americans celebrating the Fourth of July holiday.

White House Confirms It Is Looking Into Shutting Down Oil Pipeline Amid Fuel Crisis

Published

Gas Pipeline

The Biden administration confirmed that it is considering shutting down an oil pipeline in Michigan despite the ongoing fuel crisis in the country.

“Revoking the permits for the [Line 5] pipeline that delivers oil from western Canada across Wisconsin, the Great Lakes and Michigan and into Ontario, would please environmentalists who have urged the White House to block fossil fuel infrastructure, but it would aggravate a rift with Canada and could exacerbate a spike in energy prices that Republicans are already using as a political weapon,” Politico Pro reported. “Killing a pipeline while U.S. gasoline prices are the highest in years could be political poison for Biden, who has seen his approval rating crash in recent months.”

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked about the report during Monday’s press briefing, asking, “why is the administration now considering shutting down the Line 5 pipeline from Canada to Michigan?”

“So, Peter, that is inaccurate,” Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed. “That is not right. So, any reporting indicating that some decision has been made, again, is not accurate. … So, again, I would — it is inaccurate what you just stated, but —”

“What’s inaccurate?” Doocy asked.

“The reporting about us wanting to shut down the Line 5,” Jean-Pierre said.

“I didn’t say ‘wanting.’  I said, is it being studied right now?  Is the administration studying the impact of shutting down the Line 5?”

“Yeah. Yes, we are. We are,” Jean-Pierre admitted.

 

The news comes as gas prices have reached their highest since 2014, when Biden was vice president, and are currently about 50% higher than they were when Biden entered office.
