    Macy's Parade ^ | 11/22/18 | 50sDad
    Today, in a parade for a holiday that Christians celebrate as thanks to God and most celebrate as thanks for sanctioned gluttony, your "family-friendly" retail giant celebrated "The Prom", a musical that celebrates how small minded you are for thinking that a lesbian taking her girlfriend to the Prom is just wrong. Yes, YOU are the real problem, you un-woke bigots. Sigh. I miss America.

The wind gusts are expected to be right at the threshold for flying balloons: sustained winds at 22 mph and gusts expected at 33 mph.

    Armed protesters fired on the unarmed Iranian soldiers in a parade yesterday, killing 30. This was not ISIS but a local group, displaying the division and weakness within Iran. More on the downing of the Russian plane and the slow but seemingly inexorable path toward war, due to the financial threats on Russia, Iran, and Turkey. This is still the calm before the storm but the dark cloud of the Ezekiel War can be seen. More comments on America's role in all of this, and a report on Amir's ministry here in the U.S.

    A troop of golden retriever puppies stole the show when they took part in Chile's annual military parade. The fluffy young dogs snuggled, tongues lolling, in neon green pouches worn across the chests of a row of marching police trainers. The puppy section was followed by a line of uniformed men walking adult golden retrievers and labradors, which all wore little boots. The dogs belong to the Canine Unit of the Carabineros de Chile, the country's national police force.

    PYONGYANG (Reuters) - With no long-range missiles on display, North Korea staged a military parade on Sunday focused on conventional arms, peace and economic development, to mark the 70th anniversary of the country’s founding. Line upon line of goose-stepping soldiers and columns of tanks shook the ground before giving way to chanting crowds waving flags and flowers as they passed a review stand where North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sat with a special envoy from China, as well as other visiting foreigners. Kim told the envoy, Chinese parliament chief Li Zhanshu, that North Korea was focusing on economic development...

    Experts speculated before the event that North Korea may choose not to display the country's more advanced weaponry to avoid antagonizing US President Donald Trump. The celebration saw dozens of military vehicles and goose-stepping soldiers parade past leader Kim Jong Un in the center of the capital, Pyongyang, as cheering crowds watched on. … The parade was split into two sections, civilian and military. The military portion featured thousands of soldiers wearing uniforms from different periods of North Korea's history, dating back from 1948 through to the present day. … Though some of the artillery pieces on display featured anti-American...

    The parade was immediately canceled as trained personnel treated and transported the minor and his parents to a hospital, according to a statement from the town of Windsor. He died shortly afterward. “The child and family are in our hearts right now,” Windsor Police Chief Rick Klimek told Denver television station KMGH. “Windsor is a small, tight-knit community and we hope to protect the family’s privacy as they grieve the loss of their child.” The boy was a participant in a parade float. … The float belonged to a local church, Rice said. The driver stopped when he heard screaming....

The US president made the announcement on Twitter (see below) on Friday afternoon at the same as criticizing local politicians in Washington who he said were asking for too much money for the parade.

    President Donald Trump sought to cast blame Friday for the cancellation of his planned military parade on Washington city council officials, saying they had inflated the cost. Soon after the President tweeted, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed she "got thru" to Trump about costs for the parade, which at one point was calculated to run about $12 million but more recent estimates said could run as high as $92 million by the time Trump canceled the event. "The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it. When asked to give us a price for...

    he Defence Department said Thursday that the Veterans Day military parade ordered up by U.S. President Donald Trump won’t happen in 2018. Col. Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, said the military and the White House “have now agreed to explore opportunities in 2019.” The announcement came several hours after The Associated Press reported that the parade would cost about $92-million, according to U.S. officials citing preliminary estimates more than three times the price first suggested by the White House. According to the officials, roughly $50-million would cover Pentagon costs for aircraft, equipment, personnel and other support for the November parade...

    B”H We Cannot Remain Silent on Jerusalem Two events in 5752 (around Jan. 1992) compel everyone to speak up about what happened in Jerusalem last week. On the 3rd of Shvat the Lubavitcher Rebbe indirectly, but clearly, charged chasidim to go forth and speak in his name/say what needs to be said. 12 days later, on Tu BShvat, the Rebbe stopped Shamir's minister in a dollar line. Many prophetic things were said and indeed it led to the fall of a government and later a president arose and fell after not heeding the warnings, but what's relevant here is the...

    After observing France’s annual military parade celebrating Bastille Day, President Trump decided the U.S. should have a similar annual parade. It will take place on Veterans Day, which originated to celebrate the end of World War I. Although France is not an authoritarian country, and as a whole is more aligned with U.S. Democrats than U.S. Republicans, Democrats immediately launched into criticism. Turn on any lefty talk show and eventually the chitter chatter turns to smug remarks about hosting an historic parade. New York Magazine warned that the parade would be in the style of “various despotic regimes.” News...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — It looks like President Donald Trump is getting the military parade he wants in Washington — though he may get no tanks for the effort.A Pentagon planning memo issued Thursday and released Friday says the parade being planned for Nov. 11, Veterans Day, will “include wheeled vehicles only, no tanks — consideration must be given to minimize damage to local infrastructure.” Big, heavy tanks could tear up District of Columbia streets.But the event will “include a heavy air component at the end of the parade,” meaning lots of airplane flyovers. Older aircraft will be included as available.

    Stargazers, get your binoculars ready: a string of bright planets, called a "Planet Parade," will grace the night's sky this week, and the show is expected to last several days. It's just the start of what will be a breathtaking month. A "worm moon" rose on March 1, and another full moon, known as a "blue moon," will pop up on March 31. But this may be the most stunning show yet. A rare parade of planets, including Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Mercury and Venus along with the bright star Antares, will light the sky starting March 7, though they won't...

    If President Donald Trump wants to hold a massive parade honoring the military, he should hold it in Pyongyang, not Washington. The boulevards there are well built, long and wide, perfect for a showy and orchestrated military parade, which is why North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un holds so many of them. Massive tanks, assault vehicles and rocket carriers do not tear up the pavement or knock down statues of him, his father or his grandfather, or adjoining buildings in downtown Pyongyang. The people are protected as well. In Kim Jong Un’s parades there are no spectators lined up...

    Full Title: Trump wants a military parade and liberals are hysterical (just more proof it's the right thing to do) President Trump wants a parade celebrating our military and troops. It’s a great idea, and is a perfect event symbolizing the fact that America is getting back on her feet after eight years of a commander-in-chief who reveled in complaining about America and decimating our military. The hysteria the proposed parade has provoked among Democrats and leftists provides even more proof that it’s the right thing to do. Who could argue against a parade that highlights the Americans who defend...

    Video: President Trump is being slammed for wanting a Military Parade, but hang on, didn't Chuck Schumer call for a Military Parade back in 2014? Yes he did. Oh, the hypocrisy! He's is reading a script that is handed down to him from his globalist puppet masters knowing that the talking points will change again in a not too distant future as needed. Such a tired and overused expression but it is proven over and over daily; the only standards Poilticians have are double standards. Video link

    Despite everything Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Wednesday following the announcement of a new two-year budget deal — unlike others — Schumer surprisingly hasn't said much on the topic of a possible military parade in Washington D.C. However, back in 2014, Schumer called for precisely what we’ll most likely see Democrats — and some Republicans — rally against in the near future, a military parade. They’ll all call the parade contrary to what a democracy should be. They’ll also try to make it almost completely about how President Trump is just trying to boost his own ego. We’ll hear...
