    In 2014, Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year.” “If one dies in an unjust war in which we illegally invaded and occupied a sovereign nation, should that person be honored?” – @DawudWalid — Zahra Billoo (@ZahraBilloo) May 23, 2014 Billoo also retweeted radical comments from CAIR official Dawud Walid from Michigan and radical Islamist poet Remi Kanazi.

    During the walk-up to Memorial Day, with its evocations of respect for fallen warriors, hypercharged Dallas, found time to stick out a very official tongue at, you see, the wrong kind of fallen warriors: the Confederate kind. The business of establishment America, on the urging of the political left, has become that of saying, "Oh, 'scuse us for not living up to ideals we didn't know were ideals till you kind progressives kindly wised us up. " Dallas city government -- once fairly accused of patient commitment to reasoned dialogue -- bellied up enthusiastically, voting to sell and bar (unconstitutionally)...

    MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski made a failed attempt on Monday morning to rile up her "Morning Joe" panel to bash President Trump on a segment dedicated to Memorial Day. In the segment, Brzezinski began by asking the "reflections" of MSNBC commentator Mike Barnicle by invoking Trump's deployment of troops at the southern border. “I want to ask you what your reflections are during this time in terms of our attitudes in America, our knowledge and our understanding of people who serve in the military, who serve multiple tours of duty, who have taken part in wars on behalf of this...
  • Beach-goers in Orange Beach [AL] find a million-dollars' worth of marijuana and cocaine

    Orange Beach Police and several federal agencies are investigating after police said more than a million-dollars’-worth of illegal drugs washed up on the beach before Memorial Day weekend. It happened between Tuesday and Thursday and was reported by beachgoers. The drugs included marijuana and cocaine. Police said they recovered 21 pounds of marijuana and 39 kilos of cocaine, which is equivalent to 86 pounds. It was found washed up on the beach with barnacles growing on the packaging so investigators said they think it was in the water for quite a while. This kind of discovery is not common along...

    t least 42 people were shot, seven fatally, in Chicago over the Memorial Day weekend even as severe storms kept people indoors and 1,200 extra officers patrolled the streets. The toll was slightly higher than last year’s Memorial Day weekend, when 39 people were shot, seven of them fatally, according to shooting data kept by the Tribune. In 2017, 45 people were shot, seven of them killed. And in 2016, 71 people shot, six of them fatally, in one of the most violent Memorial Day weekends in recent years. “That is just an unacceptable state of affairs,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot...

    Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) on Tuesday said President Trump should not be allowed to attend next week’s D-Day anniversary event after Trump sided with North Korean leader Kim Jon Un in his criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden. “Disgusting display by Trump. No mention of #MemorialDay. He shouldn’t be allowed at anniversary of D-Day June 6. I was there Sunday. What an honor to recall what brave Americans did for freedom,” Cohen tweeted Tuesday. Cohen cited recent comments by Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.), who called out Trump’s remarks about Biden, but also asked where the rest of the GOP...

    A Washington Nationals minor league affiliate apologized Monday for a Memorial Day tribute video that appeared to show an image of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., between dictators Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro while former President Ronald Reagan spoke of the “enemies of freedom.” Fresno Grizzlies team president, Derek Franks, told KSEE-TV playing the video was “truly an oversight.” The team also released a statement apologizing for playing the clip. “A pre-produced video from outside our front office was selected; unfortunately what was supposed to be a moving tribute ended with some misleading and offensive editing, which made a statement...

    Retired Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Allen West (Screenshot) It is the day after Memorial Day and pools are open, sales are over, and those hot dogs at the baseball parks are still awfully expensive. And yes, those who we honored yesterday still lie in their final duty stations. But the question is, what shall we do for the next 364 days until the next Memorial Day? I have shared a simple theme over the past week where I have spoken. These two words come to us from a memorable film depicting the utter heroism and courage...

    Douglas MacArthur told West Point cadets, May 1962: "The soldier, above all other men, is required to practice the greatest act of religious training-sacrifice. In battle and in the face of danger and death, he discloses those Divine attributes which his Maker gave when He created man in His own image ... No physical courage and no brute instinct can take the place of Divine help which alone can sustain him. However horrible the incidents of war may be, the soldier who is called upon to offer and to give his life for his country is the noblest development of...

RUSH: Now, a lot of people say, ‘Rush, don’t harp on this. He’s just trying to be nice.’ Look, I wouldn’t harp on it if this wasn’t gaffe number one million. I don’t think he knows what Memorial Day is. We honor the dead who have served the country; they can’t possibly be anywhere where Obama sees them. (interruption) Yes! What do you mean…? Do...

        The FReeper Canteen Observes ------------------------Memorial Day 2019 ------------------------     HistoryMemorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" by Nella L. Sweet (see below) carried the dedication "To...

Yes, Memorial Day weekend. Despite the rain that persisted into the evening, a group of pro Trump patriots organized a protest out front of the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, just across the street from Microsoft headquarters, across a lake from Seattle. Their protest was countered by a small group of low energy, burned out hippies, who were mostly all white, screaming “RACIST” and all of the other...

    Every year, the approach of Memorial Day is heralded by advertisements for weekend appliance sales, vehicle discounts, and mattress price drops. Many Americans celebrate it with backyard barbecues, family road trips, or by opening their swimming pools. For most, it has become little more than an unofficial signal of summer’s arrival. But for me, the last Monday of May is one of the most important dates on America’s calendar. A few years ago, I was traveling in Pennsylvania with my parents when we stopped to have breakfast at one of our favorite places, Cracker Barrel. When Daddy briefly excused himself...
