  • Irish PM: Crisis Facing Europe Not Mass Migration But Rise of Patriotic Parties

    Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has declared that the crisis facing the EU is not mass immigration, but European resistance to importing large numbers of migrants from the third world. “This isn’t so much a migrant crisis as it is a political crisis,” the Irish Taoiseach (prime minister) said of disagreement within the EU over how to deal with illegal immigrants arriving to the continent. “Europe needs migration,” he insisted, claiming the belief that hundreds of thousands of migrants from the world’s poorest countries arriving in boats and storming the EU’s frontiers is a problem that has been invented by...

    A study that ranked all 50 states from “most patriotic” to “least patriotic” also found that, overall, red states were more patriotic than blue states (states were considered “red” or “blue” based on how they voted in the 2016 presidential election). Using data from the 2016 election and several additional sources, WalletHub measured the impact of 13 different indicators, from voter engagement to volunteer rates and the percentage of the population that joined the military.

    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!

    How frustrating. I asked google home (gift from brother) to "Hey google, play some patriotic music". What I got was a bunch of condescending bluegrass crap. No battle hymn of the republic, no star spangled banner, no lee greenwood, no armed forces western.....just a bunch of crap that only the CA libtards actually think is patriotic music.

    NEW YORK — Civil rights activists protested outside NFL headquarters Friday, calling on team owners to overturn their new national anthem policy and urging a boycott of the league and its sponsors. About 50 people gathered at the midtown Manhattan office building for a rally organized by National Action Network, a civil rights nonprofit. Kirsten John Foy, the group's northeast regional director, was the first of 10 speakers who took turns during the 40-minute demonstration to criticize NFL team owners and President Donald Trump. "Our demand is that the NFL reverse that immoral and unconstitutional decision," Foy said....

    British Police have told English football fans going to the World Cup in Russia to not wave or display the St George flag, claiming it could be seen as “imperialistic” and “antagonistic”. Up to 10,000 England fans are expected to travel to Russia next month, along with a small force of UK police to help keep them safe.

Despite the “high-ranking official’s” opposition to “God Bless America,”...

    LAFAYETTE, Colo. - A Boulder Valley School District teacher now faces child abuse and assault charges for allegedly forcing a child to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance earlier this month, CBS Denver reports. Lafayette police say Karen Smith, a physical education teacher at Angevine Middle School, grabbed a boy by his jacket, lifted him to his feet and took him out of class on February 1. Police were called. The school district released a letter it sent to parents Tuesday saying, "Today we learned that the Boulder County District Attorney's office has formally charged Angevine Middle School Physical Education...

    Coming off one of the greatest political maneuvers in the last decade, where President Trump managed to bait Democrats to shut down the government while demanding open borders, POTUS Trump now positions Democrats as U.S. Military haters. The U.S. military is one of the most beloved representative institutions. However, in a brilliant use of TDS, President Trump baits his political opposition into publicly espousing the exact opposite position: the history of President Trump’s success in this arena holds true, Democrats and anti-Trump media will now begin pushing a narrative to boycott Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veterans Day…. Why?...

    Did you ever think you'd see the day when a prominent political party would accuse the president of being divisive and exclusionary for saying "America" too many times during his State of the Union speech? The American Civil Liberties Union made that very complaint. No, the ACLU is not the Democratic Party, but their positions on such matters are virtually indistinguishable. Besides, many prominent Democrats and media liberals made similar objections after the speech. MSNBC host Joy Reid brazenly trashed traditional American values and institutions with her tweet accusing President Trump of trying to force the normalization of himself by...

The country legend sounded off on Twitter regarding Schumer's stance on immigration. "Senator Schumer, one time, just one time i’d love to hear you speak about the men and women who bled and died for you with as much compassion as you speak about illegals in this country," Daniels tweeted on Monday. "Veterans are committing suicide at the rate of 22 a day and they’re already citizens. Shameful," the 80-year-old wrote. The...

    Tim flagged this in his Saturday post about the annual Army-Navy football game, but I thought it merited its own post, just for maximum exposure.  The game itself resulted in Army's second consecutive dramatic victory, after 14 straight years of Navy triumphs.  Regardless, the performance of the Star Spangled Banner prior to the game, featuring the glee club from each military branch, was really beautiful -- especially amid the lightly falling December snow.  A stirring, patriotic tribute.

    "Christianity has a long legacy of great minds who toiled to understand the Holy Scriptures and Christian orthodoxy and applied them in ways to navigate matters of politics and international relations. However, today there is great confusion, partly due to the lack of proper catechesis, which works as a bulwark against bad doctrine and progressivism in general." "Now this independent, spirited president and his administration have come at a time when these concepts are being rediscovered and debated. What is America? How do we preserve her culturally? How do we rediscover, appreciate, and protect her?" "No doubt you’ve also seen,...

    Kathy Griffin was booed by the crowd at her Dublin performance on Wednesday, November 8 after she mistakenly included Ireland as part of the United Kingdom. She stated it was nice “being in the United Kingdom,” and seemed genuinely shocked when the friendly crowd suddenly turned to her booing and catcalling. Griffin became so startled she had difficulty continuing with her routine, The New York Times reported. Most of the Irish people at the show in Vicar Street clearly believed Griffin, an Irish American, should have known better. She has been a frequent visitor there and visited her grandmother’s hometown...

    John Schnatter, the CEO of Papa Johns who appears in nearly all of his chain’s TV commercials, is blaming a massive drop in his company’s revenue on kneeling NFL players. Papa Johns is a big sponsor of the NFL, but it seems highly unlikely that a few men protesting police brutality could torpedo an entire pizza chain. Perhaps “Papa John” should look at his business practices before blaming others, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.

    American patriotism is not exactly in vogue these days among Democrats, Hollywood starlets and the National Football League. It’s considered fashionable among the social justice crowd to take a knee during the national anthem, burn the American flag and dishonor our troops. But that’s hardly the prevailing opinion across the fruited plain – where tens of thousands of young teenagers are rising up and publicly declaring their love for America and their devotion to freedom. Last week, some 65,000 members of the Future Farmers of America Organization gathered in Indianapolis to celebrate our great nation. I received a video of...
