    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...
  • Trump getting Washington military parade _ but no tanks

    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.
  • 'Planet Parade' to light up night sky in March: How to watch the rare event

    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 it’s a parade Trump wants, why not in North Korea?

    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...
  • Chuck Schumer Called For A Military Parade In 2014

    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...

    On Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today show and ABC’s Good Morning America recited identical liberal talking points as both broadcasts warned viewers that the U.S. was on the verge of looking like world’s worst “authoritarian regimes” if the Pentagon followed through on President Trump’s desire to hold a military parade in the nation’s capital. “Some unusual marching orders from President Trump to the Pentagon. He wants a massive parade to highlight the country’s military strength,” fretted Today co-host Hoda Kotb. “But as NBC’s Hans Nichols explains, that request is not sitting well with some lawmakers,” she added.

    WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Defense is planning a military parade at the request of President Donald Trump, White House and Pentagon officials said Tuesday. After observing the Bastille Day celebrations in Paris last year, Mr. Trump said he wanted to hold a similar parade on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, perhaps to celebrate the Fourth of July. The French parade last July, which also marked the centennial of the U.S. entry into World War I, featured more than 6,000 service members, tanks and planes overhead in an elaborate display of military might. French President Emmanuel Macron invited Mr. Trump to watch...

    Coming off one of the greatest political maneuvers in the last decade, where President Trump managed to bait Democrats to shut down the government while demanding open borders, POTUS Trump now positions Democrats as U.S. Military haters. The U.S. military is one of the most beloved representative institutions. However, in a brilliant use of TDS, President Trump baits his political opposition into publicly espousing the exact opposite position: the history of President Trump’s success in this arena holds true, Democrats and anti-Trump media will now begin pushing a narrative to boycott Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veterans Day….

    President Trump’s vision of soldiers marching and tanks rolling down the boulevards of Washington is moving closer to reality in the Pentagon and White House, where officials say they have begun to plan a grand military parade later this year showcasing the might of America’s armed forces. Trump has long mused publicly and privately about wanting such a parade, but a Jan. 18 meeting between Trump and top generals in the Pentagon’s tank — a room reserved for top secret discussions — marked a tipping point, according to two officials briefed on the planning. Surrounded by the military’s highest ranking...

    North Korea to Parade Dozens of Long-Range Missiles Before Winter Olympics North Korea is planning to show off dozens of long-range missiles at a February 8 parade, the day before the Winter Olympics is set to begin in South Korea, two diplomatic sources with deep knowledge of North Korea’s intentions told CNN Wednesday. The display of “hundreds” of missiles and rockets would be an attempt “to scare the hell out of the Americans,” one of the sources said. The parade is expected to include dozens of intercontinental-range Hwasong-15 missiles, which the North Koreans test-fired for the first time in late...

Earlier this month, Seoul detected 13,000 personnel near Pyongyang's Mirim Airport, training in what appeared to be a rehearsal for a military parade to mark the founding of the North Korean army on Feb. 8.

    The NYPD is doubling down on a new breed of security to defend the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade: an elite team of Labrador retrievers specially trained to detect explosives on roving targets in large crowds. The dogs have completed the 18-month patent-pending "Vapor Wake" training program, which was developed at Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine. Unlike normal bomb-sniffing dogs, which are adept at identifying explosives in stationary objects such as trash cans, Vapor Wake dogs keep their noises up and look for mobile threats. The Labradors are dialed into the "thermal plumes left behind in a person's wake," Paul...

    A hippopotamus soared over the ocean. A cartoon character burst into flames after drifting into a high-tension wire. And a 60-foot cat sent a plane and its two passengers plummeting. These are just some of the fates met by the giant balloons that have glided through the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York over the years. Around 3.5 million people are expected to line Manhattan’s streets on Thursday to watch this year’s parade, and millions more will view it on NBC. There will be floats, marching bands and clowns on stilts. But the enormous balloons remain one of the...
