  • Was This Our Last Fourth of July?

    Was this past weekend the last time we will celebrate the Fourth of July? Right now, that certainly looks possible. In 2014, I wrote the book "The Murder of the Middle Class." Don't look now, but sadly ... tragically ... it's really happening. The left is crazy, extreme, radical, violent and ready for civil war. The Republican right -- outside of President Trump -- is a bunch of pathetic wimps ready to raise the white flag. We are the closest we've ever been to losing America. Have you ever seen as many spineless Republican politicians as we see today? Black...

    Black Lives Matter activists cite Douglass’s 1852 speech ‘What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?’ as proof America is evil. They utterly miss his point. Last week on CNN, as contributor Angela Rye accused White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnaney and President Trump of failing to understand the history of black America, she referred to the legendary Frederick Douglass. “Frederick Douglass said about Independence Day in this country, what to the slave is the Fourth of July?” she said. “And I would invite them to even start there, as a reading principle, to see how different we see...
  • Trump’s Independence Day Speech Was Not ‘Dark’ Or ‘Divisive,’ It Was American

    This cacophony comes from a sliver of society, with their voices amplified by a media selling an election year controversy to cripple President Trump. Donald Trump did not launch the latest culture war: The left-leaning press, political foes, Marxist-believing activists, and corporate and educational institutions did. When President Trump stood before a patriotic crowd on Friday night, under the watchful eyes of our country’s greatest presidents, his pronouncement that the silent majority will not retreat or surrender our founding principles was not divisive. It was American. On the eve of Independence Day, our 45th president proclaimed the truths on which...

    6 Ways To Raise A Patriot WhatÂ’s the most patriotic thing you can do right now? Raise a patriot! One silver lining of recent political and cultural upheaval is that parents are finally waking up to the indoctrination of their children. IÂ’ve always known my kidsÂ’ schools were liberal, but it wasnÂ’t until COVID-19 homeschooling began that I discovered my sonÂ’s high school curriculum included Chinese communist propaganda videos. I sat at my kitchen counter with my jaw open as we watched an assigned video justifying and promoting the Chinese Communist PartyÂ’s inhumane population control policies with zero counterpoint...

    We’re surrounded today by evidence that too few of us know our history, and too many have been mis-educated to see only its flaws. When we celebrate the Fourth, we’re not only observing our nation’s birthday. We’re also celebrating the things that came into the world along with it.When we obsess over our faults, we lose perspective and forget that aspect of our past. Never before had a country been built upon the idea that it was not the rule of kings but the dignity of each person that formed the basis of political and social order. We did that.Our...

    To honor the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, President Calvin Coolidge gave a stirring speech on the values of faith and freedom that rings like a bell today. The following speech commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence was delivered on July 5, 1926, by Calvin Coolidge, the 30th president of the United States. It has been abridged from the original._______________________Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaWe meet to celebrate the birthday of America.

    On July 2, 1776, the world changed forever. The Second Continental Congress voted to formally sever ties with the British Empire. America was officially born. On that day, John Adams wrote the following to his wife, Abigail: “The second day of July, 1776 will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with...

    It's Fourth of July weekend, and restless patriots want to finally get out of their houses and go to the beach. But they'll have no such luck in Florida's Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner said it would be highly irresponsible to open the beaches, while Broward Mayor Dale V.C. Holness argued it was imperative to keep people safe, considering any open beaches have the potential to draw people from other counties. This is not something we are taking lightly,” Holness said. “We don’t like taking away the freedom of people to go to...

    The left hates our patriotism. They scorn our flag. They kneel for our anthem. But now I speak for all good and decent Americans when I say to the young people who have been taught practically from birth to hate their own nation: we love you. We have failed you by allowing you to be taught these lies, and for that we owe you a great apology. Your lives are precious, and as our fellow citizens, we want you to thrive and succeed. We urge you to open your eyes to the poisonous history you have been taught. America is...

    The thirst among Republican voters isn't even for policy. It's for seeing the politicians they elected join the fray. I’ve been hammering away at conservatives and Republicans for failing to defend the symbols of national pride the woke leftist mob has been tearing at in recent weeks. Yesterday on the “Brian Kilmeade Show,” I admitted to letting my anger get the best of me a bit. Brian said I was speaking not as a publisher but as an American — and that’s fair. But part of my frustration is that this is such an obvious challenge that anti-American leftists and...

    The thunderous sound of fireworks — their blasts sudden, deafening and often terrifyingly similar to gunfire — have reverberated throughout the Bay Area in recent weeks. Residents in the big cities and even in the quieter suburbs report the explosions started over Memorial Day weekend and have persisted through June, waking them in the night, interrupting their babies' naps and scaring their pets. Fireworks packaging has been found around Lake Merritt in Oakland, and Nextdoor boards and Twitter are filling up with news of the booms and bangs in San Francisco. "I’m losing my mind," said SF resident J. Barry....

    SEATTLE -- One of Seattle's greatest summer traditions is the latest event to be cancelled due to the coronavirus. Seafair organizers announced all major of the events over the weeks-long celebrations have been canceled for 2020 and will instead have to wait until the summer of 2021 to come back.

    Guess what happened today, folks. I woke up and found out that President Trump didn’t take over the country via a military coup. I was astonished because everyone was telling me that this was a prelude to a coup. Anyone with a scintilla of cognitive function knows this was straight trash, but the media has their marching orders from the Democratic Party: ‘Orange man…bad.’ There could have been zero tanks; the media still would’ve criticized Trump. Why? Because he’s president and that loser Hillary Clinton is not. She will never be president. They still have yet to get that through...

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A teenager was arrested and charged after police say he attacked a family out on the riverfront enjoying their Fourth of July holiday. It happened around 8:15 p.m. in the 200 block of Riverside Drive. A witness to the incident told police he was up on a hill when he saw a 15-year-old boy throw fireworks into a crowd of people. The group was made up of at least two adults and several children, police noted in their report. The firework hit a man in the group and he went to confront the teen. That's when the...

    President Donald Trump’s Fourth of July “Salute To America” has turned into another opportunity for partisan bickering over crowd size. “I don’t know what the final count was, but that went all the way back to the Washington Monument,” the president said this morning. Trump also touted the crowd size in a tweet following the event. In response to the photo Trump tweeted of “Salute to America,” rumors spread on social media that a photo of a larger 2008 concert had been superimposed on the picture, causing Snopes to issue a fact-check to disprove them. New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez...

    They hated it. They couldn’t stand it. They still cannot stand that this man is president. So, when Trump concluded his Fourth of July address, CNN was there to pounce on it. The notorious anti-Trump network went into overdrive mocking the address because that’s all they can do. Leading up to this event was a freak out over tanks being in the capital. Pure liberal idiocy was on display and that will have to be revisited soon (via Grabien News): CNN mocks Trump's #4thofJuly speech: "It seems he is reading a Wikipedia page about historical events." "There was a USA...

    Liberals are loudly denouncing President Trump for his plans to insert himself into Fourth of July festivities in the nation's capital. He'll deliver a speech -- as if that is unique -- and provide tanks for the parade -- as if that's controversial. And so they compare Trump to Kim Jong Un. Then there are others who are using this anniversary to take it in the opposite direction. Those same leftists are using the celebration of our nation to attack her. Their actions are deliberately designed to offend ... to grab everyone's attention ... to please the people who...

    Over 40 Gold Star mothers and wives gathered on the U.S. Capitol lawn for the anti-socialism “Rally for Freedom,” joined by outspoken conservative actor Jon Voight on Independence Day. Voight said that our fallen heroes risked everything, just like the nation’s Founding Fathers. The Gold Star women wanted to take a stand against what they say is the radical socialist agenda pushed by the extreme left and remember their fallen heroes, who risked everything for the sake of liberty. Voight spoke at the event, saying those fallen heroes risked everything, just like the nation’s Founding Fathers. “I’m an actor, so...

    On this Independence Day, let me pay homage to America’s founding fathers who wrote “The Declaration of Independence”, which changed my life by bringing me to the United States in 1988. I was born in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China, right before the start of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. I lived with my parents and two younger brothers in government housing which had just two small rooms with an outdoor kitchen that my Dad built. There was no indoor plumbing and heating. The free community housing had a mud floor, good for growing mushrooms. Eight families in the community shared one...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” 2020 presidential candidate South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) criticized President Trump’s plans for July 4th celebrations by stating that the event the president has planned “makes America look smaller.” Buttigieg said, “I think it makes America look smaller. One of the reasons I joined the military was that, in a small way, I wanted to be part of seeing to it that my country was not the kind of place where a leader feels the need to boost his own ego by rolling tanks down the streets of our capital. We’ve always...
