‘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.

BREAKING: Federal Indictment of Trump in Classified Documents Probe has been Unsealed
Former President and current Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, has been indicted and is facing 37 counts in connection with his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The 49-page document was unsealed Friday.
The indictment contains charges of the following: Willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, withholding a document or record, corruptly concealing a document or record, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheme to conceal, and making false statements and representations.
Trump announced the indictment Thursday night on Truth Social, his social media platform:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is ‘secured’ by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
Trump declared himself an “INNOCENT MAN” and the subject of the “Greatest Witch Hunt of all time.” The Biden administration, he claimed, is ‘TOTALLY CORRUPT.”
The former president has argued that all the documents in question were declassified when he left the White House. “You’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview last year.
Trump was on to Biden's deep corruption re Ukraine and wanted it investigated, so they impeached him.
Now that many of Biden's crimes are being exposed, naturally they're going to indict Trump again.
