    A North Side priest who says he “can’t sit well” with Cardinal Blase Cupich burned a gay-friendly flag outside his Avondale church last week — against the wishes of the cardinal he claims is trying to minimize the clergy sex-abuse crisis. Rev. Paul Kalchik says the banner, featuring a cross superimposed over a rainbow, had been featured prominently in the sanctuary at Resurrection Catholic Church but had been taken down and was forgotten in storage at the parish at 3043 N. Francisco for more than a decade. Kalchik led seven parishioners in a prayer of exorcism Friday, and the flag...

    LGBT flag once hung over sanctuary of gay parish, displayed at Cdl. Bernardin's MassParishioners of Resurrection Parish in Chicago, Illinois, held a rainbow flag-burning event last week, cutting up and setting on fire an LGBT flag that once hung in the sanctuary at the parish's first Mass. The event was originally scheduled for Sept. 29, the Feast of St. Michael and the Archangels, but the Chicago archdiocese — heeding complaints by gay activists — called the pastor, Fr. Paul John Kalchik, and ordered him not to hold the event. A handful of parishioners took things into their own hands and...

    The media and the left will literally do anything to run protection for NFL anthem kneelers. That, unfortunately, includes some sick people literally threatening people for merely choosing to mock the kneelers. According to the Worcester (Massachusetts) Telegram, a jeweler in nearby Sturbridge is receiving threats over a billboard that gently chides the kneelers with a joke ...

    Ted Cruz’s Challenger, Beto O’Rourke has made a name for himself by saying that he can think of “nothing more American” than kneeling during the National Anthem. We can now add stripping American flags from a VFW hall to things he thinks are good. According to the Examiner, O’Rourke’s campaign had rented out a Veteran of Foreign Affairs Hall for a campaign rally in Navasota, TX, and requested that the VFW Post 4006 Commander Carl Dry take down the American flags in his building ahead of the event.

    ...just more of the same anti-American crap.... The late Neil Armstrong’s 1969 trip to the moon may have been “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” but it was also a massive achievement for the United States. One of Armstrong’s first orders of business was to proudly plant the American flag, after all. But Ryan Gosling, the Canadian actor who plays Armstrong in “First Man,” Hollywood’s rendition of the moon landing, told the Telegraph the magic moment was intentionally omitted from the big screen because Armstrong’s achievement “transcended countries and borders.” ...More at link:

    Actress Kate Mara has ties to the NFL, being the great-granddaughter of Giants founder Tim Mara and Steelers founder Art Rooney. Her uncle is also Giants' co-owner John Mara, which is why she was asked about the NFL's new anthem policy that John Mara helped form in an interview with Variety. "I believe everybody has a constitutional right to stand, or kneel or sit during the national anthem," she said. The new policy states that any players that are not on the field or standing for the national anthem on gameday will be fined by the NFL, and can be...

John McCain (R-Ariz.). Multiple reporters noted on social media that the flags were flying at half staff once again.

    The White House flag is no longer at half-staff to honor the death of Sen. John McCain, driving President Donald Trump’s critics crazy. The flag was lowered to half-staff on the day of McCain’s death and the following day as established by the federal code. U.S. Code says: "The flag shall be flown at half-staff ... on the day of death and the following day for a member of Congress." Senate leaders Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell urged the Pentagon to lower their flags until McCain is buried, according to a Schumer spokesman. Frequent Trump critics used the occasion to...

    Warning: This story contains graphic content Paul Welch came to the downtown protest Aug. 4 to let his political leanings be known. With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators. Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued. It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter...

    But as she walked toward the front door there was a welcomed surprise — her father’s flag, tattered but neatly folded by the front door. On it was a note from firefighters that read, “Saved the house but not the flag. Thanks for flying Old Glory.” A gesture that restored the Spellmans faith, even when it felt like their whole world was going up in flames. “It’s the flag that means a lot,” Kari Spellman said. “And I’m just very thankful to these individuals that are willing to sacrifice for people that they don’t even know and to put so...

    Mark Geragos, the lawyer who is representing Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid in a collusion lawsuit against the NFL, has been hinting all summer that there’s damaging information about the NFL that will come out of the case. But Geragos says the court is stopping him from letting the public know all the facts, which he suggested involve a conspiracy regarding President Trump and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. “The president tweeted about how lame the national anthem policy was,” Geragos said on his Reasonable Doubt podcast. “Then Jerry Jones came out and said they’re going to stand during the anthem....

    This is an excellent video that inspires patriotism, respect for our flag, and love for our people. Perhaps this video could help to motivate the base? This would be ideal to be shown at upcoming Trump rallies. Anyone have suggestions of how to pass message along to Trump rally organizers, I'd appreciate it. Please share with family and friends as Independence Day approaches!
