    Steyn On-line ^ | July 5, 2020 | Mark Steyn
    On our Independence Day edition of The Mark Steyn Show you'll hear "America the Beautiful", "My Country, 'Tis of Thee", "You're a Grand Old Flag", and other songs that celebrate love of country. Which is just as well, because, on this strangest of Fourths, patriotic songs seem to have joined other once universal phenomena, such as freedom of speech, in the suddenly partisan category. And don't get the lefties started on being "proud to be an American"... So I thought, in the interests of forming a more perfect union this weekend, I'd rustle up a patriotic song by a man...

    Now, questions over Hodges’ support of Trump and social media affinity for Kirk have aroused suspicion. “Some people think it’s deep in his heart,” said the Rev. Gwen Webb, who took part in Birmingham civil rights marches in 1963 and is now associate pastor of Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in west Birmingham. “If they allowed them to continue to meet there (at Parker and Woodlawn), there was going to be a lot of hostility. We really don’t need any more negative pushback in the city. Negative things bring negative consequences.”

    OneRepublic and Jeep have extended their relationship with a new Super Bowl commercial, which the automaker has released ahead of Sunday's big game. The ad is called "More Than Just Words," and it's described as a "illustrative narration" of "The Star Spangled Banner." We see Ryan Tedder and the rest of OneRepublic entering a recording studio, where Ryan starts to sing, "Oh say, can you see." Each word he sings is illustrated by an image -- for example, as he sings "can," we see someone opening up the pull-tab of a soda can. When he sings "see," we see a...

    CFRB Radio via Youtube ^ | June 5, 1973 | Gordon Sinclair
    (EXCERPT ONLY) This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as most generous and possibly the least appreciated people on all the earth. Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. None of these countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States. When the franc was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was...

    Lift every voice and sing Till earth and heaven ring, Ring with the harmonies of Liberty; Let our rejoicing rise High as the listening skies, Let it resound loud as the rolling sea. Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us, Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us, Facing the rising sun of our new day begun Let us march on till victory is won. Stony the road we trod, Bitter the chastening rod, Felt in the days when hope unborn had died; Yet with a steady beat,...
