    WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Tens of thousands of nationalists marched in a demonstration organized by far-right groups in Warsaw Saturday, as Poles celebrated their country's Independence Day. The far-right march was one of many events marking Poland's rebirth as a nation in 1918 after being wiped off the map for 123 years. Earlier in the day, President Andrzej Duda presided over state ceremonies also attended by European Union president Donald Tusk, a former Polish prime minister. But the march has become the largest Independence Day event in recent years, overshadowing official state observances and other patriotic events. Some participants expressed...

    The media says America is cursed with a xenophobic president who fears and loathes refugees. Yet the Americans who voted for him at the highest rate (higher even than native-born “whites”) were foreign-born one-time refugees. The media says America is blighted by an isolationist know-nothing president who ignorantly, chauvinistically and provincially shirks our nation’s international commitments, especially regarding common defense. Yet this week this president got a rousing reception in the capital of a nation 7000 miles and an ocean away where he pledged to install America’s most modern Polaris missiles for the common defense.The media says America is cursed with...
  • What the Fourth of July Means

    Americans have celebrated the Fourth of July for almost 250 years, with the 241st such celebration just behind us, but the vast majority of Americans have only the vaguest notion of why this holiday matters so much. The Fourth of July does not represent the beginning of the American Republic. Indeed, there was practically no real government at all on July 4, 1776. The men who signed the Declaration of Independence were largely volunteers in a thankless task: express the reason why the thirteen colonies were declaring their separation from Britain.
  • "The Root" magazine engages in gross historical malpractice

    07/05/2017 7:08:34 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 9 replies
    It's such a shame to see a magazine that claims to be "The Root", be so willing to ignore "the roots" of what you would think would be their own history. Recently, The Root engaged in gross historical malpractice by giving voice to people who would benefit greatly from learning their own true history. They created a short video titled "No Country for Me." This is (among many reasons) one of the reasons why I recorded William Cooper Nell's 1855 book The Colored Patriots of the American Revolution as an audiobook. There are many outlets out there, even outlets such...

    Former President Barack Obama delivered a speech overseas Saturday, warning that some nations are becoming too nationalistic. Speaking to a crowd in Jakarta, Indonesia, Obama argued some countries had adopted “an aggressive kind of nationalism,” adding that there has been an “increased resentment of minority groups.” Though he largely stayed away from discussing President Donald Trump, Obama spoke out against the isolationism and increased nationalism that he sees as a global problem. “We start seeing a rise in sectarian politics, we start seeing a rise in an aggressive kind of nationalism, we start seeing both in developed and developing countries...

    The U.S. led anti-Islamic State coalition bombed the terrorist group 25 times July 3, Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) said in a statement Tuesday. The 25 strikes consisted of “85 engagements” against the terrorist group and spanned Iraq and Syria. The strikes come amid two large scale U.S. backed pushes in both countries. The U.S. is currently in the last phase of supporting the Iraqi Security Force’s military campaign to retake the formerly ISIS held city of Mosul. ISIS controlled the city uncontested for nearly two years and has put up a brutal defense since U.S. backed operations began in October 2016....

    Government, and its GOP and Dem buddies, hates the Declaration of Independence (D of I) and the Constitution because of the limitations of and freedom from government those precious documents represent. But America is about WE the People who LOVE AND REJOICE OVER LIBERTY AND INDEPENDENCE. Michael Ramirez’s drawing is a good illustration. http://www.michaelpramirez.com/fireworks.html We the People need to take back OUR country, OUR freedoms, and OUR D of I and Constitution from the clutches of the self-serving politicians in both the Democratic Party and the GOP. Americans need to reclaim their God-given FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE FROM GOVERNMENT once again....

    Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stepped aboard the giant aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush on Monday for a tour of the ship as it lay off the port of Haifa. He took the opportunity to wish America well ahead of its 241st Independence Day before stressing the shared ideals of freedom and democracy that link the two countries. He opened his remarks by first congratulating the men and women who take the USS George H.W. Bush into harm’s way: “I stand on the deck of a mighty aircraft carrier of the United States of America, and a few miles...

    Happy Independence Day July 4, 2017! As crazed Democrats are trying to impeach our duly elected United States President, important reminders by our founding fathers and greatest modern day Presidents and world leaders are never more relevant. “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”—Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. President America’s second President and drafter of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson warned,”The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases.”

    Like your favorite radio hosts I’m doing a “best of” today. Happy Birthday America! From 2010: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? These founding documents were designed and declared with full knowledge of human nature and complete understanding of the soul’s tendencies. The result was the formation of a more perfect union which has stood the test of time in no small part due to the wisdom of these founders who crafted a near sacred separation of powers within the government they created.  Let us honor their courage, their genius and their foresight. And for our part, let us be ever...

    DAD, WHAT's UNABHÄNGIGKEITSTAG? "Is that when the thirteen colonies broke away from England?" My ten year inquired out of nowhere at 6 AM German time this morning. "Yeah, why do you want to know, eat your breakfast," I mumbled, too sleepy to be very curious. "Because I am afraid my teacher will ask me, since I am wearing this T-shirt and I'm the only American in the class." With an effort, I adjusted my gaze upward to his white T-shirt. It was brand new. Prominent on his breast was an image of the flag and below that: OLD NAVY FREEDOM...

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...
