    Even though the Fourth of July is seen as a holiday of unity for all Americans, there were still some in the political world who chose to use the holiday to send a partisan message. In particular, Democratic Senator and potential 2020 candidate Kamala Harris tweeted odd political commentary on Wednesday’s holiday, erroneously claiming that “eight immigrants” signed the Declaration of Independence. ....The point is also strange because America was not an independent nation at the time and therefore had no immigration laws of its own yet. It is safe to say the internet reacted badly to the Democrat Senator’s...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Liberals just keep coming out of the anti-America closet, Part 6,582.: Some guy named Dylan Matthews, writing at the far-leftwing Vox.com fake news site, ran a piece on July 4 titled “3 Reasons the American Revolution was a Mistake.” The piece includes the usual complaints about America’s horrible treatment of native Americans, which are mostly true, but then moves to unsupported claims that slavery would have somehow ended sooner without the Revolution and – hilariously – that the British parliamentary form of government is somehow far superior to the American Republic. Obviously,...

  • Abraham Lincoln's Independence Day Address of 1863

    GuruKul American Education ^ | July 4, 2009 | James R Heintze
    Abraham Lincoln's Independence Day Address of July 7, 1863 Researched by James R. Heintze. All rights reserved. Abraham Lincoln's Independence Day address of 1863 in Washington is significant in that it was presented three days after the city had celebrated the holiday and represented one of only a few Fourth of July addresses given in Washington during the 19th century that were reprinted in newspapers outside the city. Perhaps not referred to as often as his other speeches, Lincoln's July 7 address is nonetheless important. Presented, apparently spontaneously, as a response to hundreds of persons who had gathered in front...

    Journal of the American Revolution ^ | February 22, 2016 | Anthony J. Minna
    No country venerates its “Founding Fathers” like the United States. Academics, legislators, judges, and ordinary citizens all frequently seek to validate their opinions and policy prescriptions by identifying them with the statesmen who led America to nationhood. It is not surprising, therefore, that debates about the role of religion in the United States are infused with references to the faith of the Founding Fathers and to the two greatest documents they gave to the fledgling republic: the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution. People across the religious spectrum, from the most devout believers to the most committed...

    All statues must go—even ones erected to the president who led the effort to abolish slavery through the 13th Amendment. The president who kept this country together during one of the most turbulent time in our history. He’s our greatest president full stop. And yet, someone decided to vandalize Abraham Lincoln in Chicago (via NBC Chicago): An Abraham Lincoln was damaged and burned in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood late Wednesday, Ald. Ray Lopez said.The statue was found burned near 69th Street and Wolcott, authorities said."What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism," Lopez wrote on Facebook along with an image of the...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — As many in the United States celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, some minorities have mixed feelings about the revelry of fireworks and parades in an atmosphere of tension on several fronts. How do you celebrate during what some people of color consider troubling times? Blacks, Latinos and immigrant rights advocates say the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, recent non-convictions of police officers charged in the shootings of black men, and the stepped-up detentions of immigrants and refugees for deportation have them questioning equality and the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...

    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...

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign had even its lowliest staffers working on Independence Day, according to sources. A Hamptons insider told us that one of Clinton’s summer interns was overheard grousing over the weekend in the Hamptons that, “Clinton was ‘not giving anyone the day off on July Fourth,’ so the girl had to head back to work on Monday.” The source added that the intern “was saying that she and some of her co-workers were unhappy about it.”

    If you've never heard of Entebbe you've probably never heard of what makes Entebbe famous, or why that matters. As America celebrates July 4 as the anniversary of independence, Israel and those who support her celebrate the historic milestone and miracles connected to the rescue of hostages and heroic counter terrorism operation at Uganda’s capital also on July 4, 40 years ago. The celebrated operation was comprised of imagination on steroids, tremendous bravery and numerous miracles. On 27 June 1976, an Air France plane with 248 passengers was hijacked by Arab and German terrorists, and flown to Entebbe, Uganda’s main...

    Each day I spend in the USA further persuades me that I am, in fact, an American trapped in the perfectly-sculpted, demigod-like body of a Graeco-German new media phenomenon currently taking over the world thanks to my signature brand of sass, wit, good looks, killer hatefacts and trademark humility. Make no mistake — I have always felt blessed that I was raised in England. But spending an extended time in this country has opened my eyes to what makes America truly wonderful. For all its minor faults, America is still the land of optimism and opportunity. In my earlier trips...

    The White House on Monday canceled a Fourth of July celebration for troops who were scheduled to attend an event on the South Lawn, citing the possibility of inclement weather. However, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will proceed with a planned performance this evening from rapper Kendrick Lamar and singer Janelle Monae. Afterward, the couple will deliver remarks in the East Room of the White House. Before the event was canceled, troops were scheduled to participate in a barbeque and view fireworks in the evening,...
