    He might be standing, but he’s having hard time singing. President Trump appeared to forget the lyrics to “God Bless America” during a White House event Tuesday meant to prove how patriotic he is. Trump was caught on video singing every other word to the national hymn as a military chorus boomed behind him. On three occasions, Trump gave up singing all together and let the uniform-clad men around him do the vocalizing. A White House spokesman did not return a request for comment from the Daily News. The last-minute “Celebration of America” event was put together after Trump cancelled...

    ...reported opposition to song Howard Bryant’s latest long-winded essay about racial division in professional sports contains remarks from an anonymous “high-ranking Red Sox official” about his desire for the team to stop playing "God Bless America" at Fenway Park. “Recently a high-ranking Red Sox official told me — nearly 17 years after the towers fell — that he really doesn’t know why the team still plays ‘God Bless America,’ but he knows this: The team would ‘get killed’ publicly if it was the first team to stop doing it,” Bryant writes. Despite the “high-ranking official’s” opposition to “God Bless America,”...

    You’ve heard the statistics before: Americans have more guns per head than any nation on earth – along with gun violence rates that are dramatically higher than other rich, developed countries. But these big-picture facts can be misleading. Not every American is packing heat and gun violence is intensely concentrated in small neighbourhoods. Here’s a look at the dramatic concentration of America’s guns – and America’s violence:

  • Kerry's socialist theme song

    I grew up in a family of 11 children in the days before SUVs. So we took our road trips in two-car caravans led by a steamy station wagon with crank-handle windows and hot vinyl upholstery. That wagon was always packed with obstreperous kids singing obnoxious songs. But one song we were emphatically discouraged from singing has now emerged as a theme song for John Kerry's presidential campaign. My father loved popular music and never ceased being interested in it. In the 1960s, he happily escorted my older sisters to see the Beatles. A decade later, he bought me tickets...

    I thank God every day for President Trump and pray for his continuing success. Had Trump not entered the race, the GOPe would have delivered the nomination to Jeb Bush and then Her Royal Heinous Hillary would be sitting in the White House today. Those who think that doesn't make any difference whatsoever are perfectly free to post somewhere else. God bless President Trump. God bless America.

    Sometimes even the most illustrious words can bury the beauty and the deep meaning of a glorious moment—we will attempt to refrain from burying what may have been the most stirring Presidential inauguration in America’s history with too many words. The crowds across the mall were superbly self-controlled and respectful, all standing as a cross section of America’s best.

    President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source. “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed…. “The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the encounter. “The meeting took place...

    Many will say Trump won because he successfully capitalized on blue collar workers' anxieties about immigration and globalization. Others will say he won because America rejected a deeply unpopular alternative. Still others will say the country is simply racist to its core.

    God Bless America and protect all souls from the breath-taking evil of the Obama-Clinton cabal. There’s something special you can do on this Independence Day, the last one before the cabal backing Barack Obama’s third term through Hillary Clinton gets to change July 4th to ‘Global Citizen Independence Day’. It starts by opening your windows and letting all negativity go flying out into the summer breeze making it truly gone with the wind. Mark July 4, 2016 as the one when the heart-rending song, ‘God Bless America’ was turned into a fervent, year-round prayer.

    It’s time for God to stop blessing America during the seventh-inning stretch. Welcome to the July 4 holiday weekend — when once again, baseball fans will be assaulted by the saccharine-sweet non-anthem “God Bless America” at stadia all over this great land. But no matter which home team you root, root, root for, “God Bless America” should be sent permanently to the bench.

    The Star-Spangled Banner survived the rocket’s red glare and bombs bursting in air – only to face a modern-day threat – silly town ordinances and petty bureaucrats. I’m not sure if it’s an epidemic of anti-American nincompoopery sweeping across the fruited plain or if it’s a general lack of common sense. Maybe it’s both. I’ll let you be the judge of that.

    Whenever folks in Penfield, New York get a hankering for pancakes for lunch – they head over to the 5 Mile Café. The family-owned restaurant is known in those parts for serving breakfast any time of the day (order their homemade corned beef hash). They are also known for their patriotism. “We are very patriotic here at the café – all year round –not just this time of year,” owner Jennifer Aquino told me. “We have American flags and patriotic things around the café.” So Jennifer decided to ask the town for a permit so she could post a “God...

  • The 'White Privilege' Lie-And why it does great harm to blacks.

    A pillar of contemporary leftism is the notion of "white privilege." Given that a generation of high school and college students are being taught that a great number of "unearned privileges" accrue to white Americans -- the charge of white privilege demands rational inquiry. The assertion turns out to be largely meaningless. And more significantly, it does great harm to blacks. First, no reasonable person can argue that white privilege applies to the great majority of whites, let alone to all whites. There are simply too many variables other than race that determine individual success in America. And if it...

    "War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength." In George Orwell's dystopic novel 1984, the totalitarian Big Brother regime issues perverse edicts reflecting the opposite of what is said. Likewise, in the American Civil Liberties Union's dystopic world, "silence is freedom of speech." The latest example unfolded recently in the Pittsburgh suburb of Monroeville, Pennsylvania, where the ACLU bullied the city council, which had been considering allowing faith leaders to give rotating prayers before the meetings. The Council had long been opening with recitations of the Lord's Prayer, and after a complaint from a single, disappointed petitioner morphed into...
