Salute To America
July 4, 2019, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C.
featuring a speech by President Donald J. Trump
Can someone tell me what happened to the tanks?
CSPAN is going to re-air it at 7:00 PM EST. ie about five minutes from now. :)
When I hear someone complain about the tanks, I mention JFK did it. Shuts them up.

It’s nice that the taxpayer gets to actually see the equipment he’s paying for. We the People, it’s Our Equipment. Great.
My bad, 9:00 PM EST. (got confused, I’m on MST)
On occassion we were treated to military bands. Wow was it Loud.. We Loved it!
Barry R McCaffrey Verified account @mccaffreyr3 1h1 hour ago Pres Trump his own Master of Ceremonies and impresario for a long patriotic speech at the Lincoln Memorial. Heavy focus on history of our powerful Armed Forces. No partisan attacks on his political enemies. Central focus on Trump. Angry 4th of July.
There was one right in front of the stage I believe
I just let McCaffrey know what I think of him but he’s getting plenty of reinforcement from the Hate America moonbats.
then i realized that practically no one under 30 probably knows even the very basic historical military memes that Trump was mentioning. . .

Not just people under 30. I was in the Navy and I’m 66 and many of the things he mentioned were unknown to me, or I had only hazy knowledge of them.
As usual, Trump explained basic history in an interesting way.
Willie Brown’s ho isn’t qualified to clean the toilets in the Capitol Building much less be president.
Since they don’t teach this country’s real history in the schools anymore...someone has to do it!
I recently did a coach tour of Spain and Portugal and there were two women in our group who worked for 20 years in the Florida education systems. I asked them if they had viewed Jesse Watter’s questioning of young people on the street about questions of basic history and geography. Of course most of them are unable to correctly answer such questions. Both of them told me the reason is easy to explain: Most school systems no longer teach history and geography.
I remember learning/singing all of the military songs, in grade school.
And I saw your post at 9:00 EST, so I missed it again. And they're not showing it now.
Really, I assumed it was going to be at noon, but they seem to have hidden it away as well as restricted it to about ten minutes or something.
Maybe someone will eventually post it online.
I guess I was confused about what this was. I thought it was going to be a parade with the equipment rolling by and so forth. According to sources on the internet, the attendees could not get near the tanks. Many people complained they never saw a tank.
Doesn’t make sense.
“He caught them off guard. “
maybe, but they’d have to be really stupid to think Trump would do anything other than make a speech about the historical greatness of our country and our military ...
i suspect what happened was their usual wishful thinking that merely wishfully thinking something would make that something real ...
the entire dying lying leftist fake stream enemedia spent days trashing the President’s Tribute to America, telling us that it was going to be nothing more than a cheap, partisan campaign event, when those of us who watched his Normandy speech knew better ... and then of course, when their fake reality finally turned out to be completely untrue, they were left holding their d**ks in their hands ...
DC. Democrats pitched a fit, said it would be too hard on
the streets, cost too much etc.
Great speech by the President, I don’t think he said
the “I” word five times.
I made a mistake when I said 7:00 EST, I meant 9:00 EST. Just checked CSPAN and they have it scheduled to start at 9:15 EST. They said 9:00 EST before but I guess they changed it. Check again!
Yes it is.
And after three years or so those schmucks still haven’t figured out what he’s doing.
They fall for it every time.
None of them have d**cks.
Indeed.. we sang military songs, pledged allegiance to the flag, celebrated Christmas and Easter..
Schools need to be made Great Again!
