    Former FBI Director James Comey on Wednesday shared a peek at his family’s Independence Day traditions. In an Instagram post, Comey shared a photo of several numbered pieces of paper with burnt edges, which he explained in a caption are printed with the Declaration of Independence. The former FBI chief said that every July 4th, his family assigns “parts” and reads the document aloud as a group. “The Comey family Declaration pieces (long ago made “authentic” by our kids burning the edges and soaking it in coffee),” Comey wrote in the caption. “As always on July 4th, we will assign...

Police on ladders spoke to the woman just after 4.30pm but she refused to come down, so officers constructed a rope rescue system...

    McCain is celebrating at his home in Arizona while he continues physical therapy to combat a deadly form of brain cancer. “One of the greatest privileges of my life has been marking Independence Day with America’s service members and diplomats selflessly serving overseas,” McCain said. “As I spend this Fourth of July at home in Arizona, my thoughts are with these courageous men and women fighting terrorism and tyranny around the world.” The 81-year-old was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer, in July 2017. Following his diagnosis, McCain left Washington and returned to his home...
  • Elvis Presley - An American Trilogy - Aloha from Hawaii

    07/03/2018 9:24:28 PM PDT · by Beave Meister · 25 replies
    Aloha from Hawaii Via Satellite is a concert that was headlined by Elvis Presley, and was broadcast live via satellite on January 14, 1973. The concert took place at the Honolulu International Center (HIC) in Honolulu (now known as the Neal S. Blaisdell Center) and aired in over 40 countries across Asia and Europe (who received the telecast the next day, also in primetime). Despite the satellite innovation, NBC did not broadcast an edited version of the concert in the United States until April 4, 1973 because the concert took place the same day as Super Bowl VII. The decision...

    Meghan McCain wasn’t prepared for the gigantic water slides her mom, Cindy, gifted her for the 4th of July — but she will be after “a few beers!” Sen. John McCain‘s daughter shared videos of two huge, inflatable water slides on her Instagram story on Tuesday, saying they were “water park” quality. “Mom told me that she was getting us water slides; this is not exactly what I thought we were getting for the Fourth of July,” Meghan, 33, said with a laugh. “This is the biggest water slide in the world.” “Don’t ever say that Cindy McCain doesn’t go...

    This is a dilemma: the 4th of July, is on Wednesday, so which weekend is technically “4th of July weekend” this year?  I checked my State’s fireworks schedule to see if that would give me a clue but it looks like those communities that don’t actually shoot them off on the 4th are split between the weekend before and after. This leads me to conclude that Wednesday is the perfect day for the 4th as you can log a 9 day, two weekend holiday by spending only 4 days from your vacation bank. I haven’t worked (for compensation) for a...

    WASHINGTON — They wore white. They shook their fists in the air. They carried signs reading: “No more children in cages,” and “What’s next? Concentration Camps?” In major cities and tiny towns, thousands of marchers gathered across America, moved by accounts of children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border, in the latest act of mass resistance against President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. “I’m hoping that decent human beings come together, and enough is enough, we’re taking out country back over, that evil is not going to prevail,” said Patricia Carlan, a grandmother of nine from Danville, Indiana, among...

    The media says America is cursed with a xenophobic president who fears and loathes refugees. Yet the Americans who voted for him at the highest rate (higher even than native-born “whites”) were foreign-born one-time refugees. The media says America is blighted by an isolationist know-nothing president who ignorantly, chauvinistically and provincially shirks our nation’s international commitments, especially regarding common defense. Yet this week this president got a rousing reception in the capital of a nation 7000 miles and an ocean away where he pledged to install America’s most modern Polaris missiles for the common defense.The media says America is cursed with...

    The FBI on Monday announced terrorism charges against 23-year-old Harlem Suarez of Key West, Florida, who portrayed himself online as a member of ISIS and allegedly wanted to carry out a terrorist attack on American soil.Toward this end, law enforcement says Suarez thought he was purchasing an operational backpack bomb for deployment in Florida, but it was actually a dud sold to him by FBI operatives. He was also allegedly trying to get his hands on an AK-47 rifle.According to NBC News, Suarez told informants of a plan to pack the bomb with nails, bury it on the beach, and...

    Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1 Happy Birthday America and thank you George Washington! It has been over a decade since America could actually celebrate its birthday and not feel guilty about it. Whether it was protesting the war or the eight years of Obama trashing this Country one speech after another we finally have someone in office who loves America and what she stands for. America has been the beacon of freedom in a world of dictators and despots who oppress...
  • The 4th of July – The Concord Battlefield And When The Mystic Chords Of Memory Fray

    Every year, between Memorial Day and the 4th of July, I make a pilgrimage to the place where America began – the battlefield in Concord, Massachusetts. Today, it's a national park with beautiful green hills, flower beds, a meandering river and the Minuteman Monument. The colonists gave birth to a new nation not on July 4, 1776 (with the signing of the Declaration of Independence), but at the Old North Bridge in Concord, on April 19, 1775. Words are fine and necessary, but nations, like individuals, are born in blood. The Battle of Concord was the first time the colonists...

    Hundreds of men women and children participated in an open carry march in Florida on the 4th of July.  On video posted on facebook, you can see the march stretching into the distance in front of and in back of the camera. You can also see the wfla video posted on  It is taken at a corner. That perspective makes the march look much smaller. From INVERNESS, FL (WFLA) – More than 300 people marched through the streets of Inverness in Citrus County to show their support for the Second Amendment on the morning of Fourth of...

    Happy Birthday, America! It’s 2015, and we are freer than we have ever been to pursue happiness as the Declaration of Independence promises we have an inalienable right to do. As of last week, the Supreme Court guaranteed gay Americans, who once lived in the shadows, the full range of privileges and legal protections. People of all races have never been so free to live and work as they choose, in full security, with full rights and respect as citizens, and with the opportunity for advancement. The Internet has given us full individual freedom of expression, and created new avenues...

    This is a tough Vortex to speak. I’m as patriotic as the next guy. I remember being a young lad of 15 as my country celebrated its bicentennial back in 1976. I watched TV that day from six in the morning until well past midnight as the non-stop, commercial-free, wall-to-wall coverage on the giant national birthday party was broadcast from sea to shining sea. I watched the tall ships sail into New York harbor, saw the explosive fireworks show over D.C. I listened and sang my lungs out with a lump in my throat as Arthur Fielder conducted the Boston...

    Our nation, formed in such idealism in 1776, today is under assault. Some people might think that word “assault” is just a metaphor. Our values under “assault.” Our religious rights of conscience being “attacked.” All that is true, of course. But I’m talking about real, literal assault. Unborn babies in today’s America are literally – not figuratively – assaulted. They are physically attacked in the womb, dismembered, often in the most painful ways imaginable. They, even more than our nation itself, are truly “under assault.” Through the work of National Right to Life, our state affiliates, local chapters and others,...
