    Unlike many of today's 'anti-war' duds, these seven works honor Americans who served in war. Memorial Day is of course when we remember those who died serving their country in our armed services. There was a time when America's movie industry took pride in honoring American servicemen, both the living and the dead; there are a few actors and directors in Hollywood who still do. But since movies about Americans at war have largely gone in the opposite direction since Vietnam, this weekend it might be worthwhile going back to see seven movies that deal with war in an honest...
  • Maxine Waters to Trump supporters: “You’re not nearly as patriotic as we are”

    It’s funny watching this speech a day after rumors circulated that the White House was planning to make some sort of major legislative outreach to the Congressional Black Caucus. I … don’t get the sense that Waters will be part of that effort.What’s her problem with Trump anyway? Thanks to pressure from the progressive base, Democrats in Congress are now duty bound to renounce him the way Catholics renounce Satan at a baptism, but Waters has been doing it with special relish. Last month she said of Trump and his cabinet, “This is a bunch of scumbags, that’s what...

The book is a collection of essays about topics ranging from civil rights to schools and libraries and what it means to be an American. Rather’s previous works include the memoirs “Rather Outspoken” and “I Remember.” …

    Caption - Indian movie goers stand up as national anthem is played at a movie hall before the screening of a movie in Jammu, India, Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2016. A ruling by India's Supreme Court last month said that the anthem must be played before every film screening in the country and that audiences must stand. The court said the rule was aimed at instilling a sense of patriotism. (AP Photo/Channi Anand) (Copyright 2016 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.)

    Michelle Obama once told us that she had never been proud of her country until her husband was nominated for the presidency. She just told Oprah Winfrey we Americans are entering a time of hopelessness – "we are feeling what not having hope feels like." The end of hope is a severe condemnation. No pride is to be bestowed on people without hope. But it is what Mrs. Obama believes. She was not proud of America until she was 44 years old, when she said of her husband's 2008 Democrat presidential nomination, "For the first time in my adult life,...

    In trying to depict what an 80s redux will be like to my young'uns, less the crackbabies, AIDS, smog, etc., the most profound human recovery will be Freedom, which most kids under 30 don't seem to have an acquaintance with. Since 9/11, American culture has taken a permanent nosedive: music, film, art, education, everything, and here we are with a clean re-boot handed to us by DJT. What do you want to bring back? What should we diligently avoid as consequences of freedom and prosperity that half the nation doesn't have the experience or wisdom to handle competently this time...

    It is extremely clear to all of us who have followed the politics of the the Democrats, the GOP and the Clintons since John F. Kennedy that Washington D.C. has become the biggest center of corruption of all time in the history of our country. Obama was proven to be the worst President in history in the fact that he has purposefully chosen to do everything he can to transform America into a 3rd World country because of his hatred for America. We are currently faced with electing Hillary Clinton, who has as her qualifications of 30 years of lying,...

    The challenge of racial division in America today is not just that there are forces pushing us apart, but that we've lost the things that held us together. Relations between black people and white people are probably at their worst in anyone's lifetime, with most of those divisions exacerbated dramatically in the last handful of years. The reasons for that have more to do with the manipulation of racial animosity than the reality of the racial situation. Politicians and activists, each standing to benefit by pitting people against one another, have whipped up an internal and seemingly unresolvable conflict between...

    (Courtesy of Jeff Hill) Connor Brewer is fiercely loyal to his college football team. But he is also fiercely loyal to the United States of America. So when the Millikin University football team decided to protest the national anthem by remaining inside the locker room – instead of on the sidelines - Connor was faced with a decision. Would he join his teammates in their university-approved safe space or would he stand on the sidelines and honor America? Connor chose to stand – alone. One of my readers sent me a photograph of what transpired on Oct. 15th at...

    Student Union Welfare Officer Mahamed Abdullahi is campaigning for the “outdated” National Anthem to be removed from the end of King’s College London’s graduation ceremony due to its apparent links to “far right nationalism”. Mr. Abdullahi, a Danish national and geography student, made the statement on Facebook, saying: “In the context of increasing far right nationalism across Europe and the legacy of the British empire, [the National Anthem is] just a bit shit” and exclaimed: “Fuck the nation state”, reports the MailOnline.

    From one 'Happy Deplorable' to all American citizens, Sometimes, it seems that little nuggets of truths are found in the most obscure writings in existence, from current publications, ancient writ, and stuff that is just plain weird, in someone's eyes. I present to you such a raw nugget. I quote: "A nation must become aware of its own character before it can be said to exist. From that knowledge it must divine its destiny. It must then consider the political conditions of the world, how other countries may help it or hinder it. It must then destroy in itself any...

    Why are people so angry over an NFL player that refused to stand for the National Anthem?    Hundreds of thousands of words have been written on the subject and I won't rehash any of them, but I'd ask you to consider the reason people are outraged and why it matters. Sports fan is a shortened form of the original term, sports fanatic.  Fanatic is defined as a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal (great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective), especially for an extreme religious or political cause.  A religion can be defined as a...

    Tomorrow is the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack ever on American soil. Thousands died in the attack, and many thousands more died in wars that resulted from that attack. Solidarity with the dead drives patriotism in this regard. Our flag and our anthem are symbols of the unity that compels us to stand together in affirmation of those murdered lives and in determination to defend ourselves from those who would wantonly kill us. Football also unites us in a way. To be sure, the NFL is a pastime. That is, it is a diversion -- a game that people...

    NEW YORK (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell disagrees with Colin Kaepernick’s choice to kneel during the national anthem, but recognizes the quarterback’s right to protest. Asked by The Associated Press about Kaepernick’s decision not to stand before games when the national anthem is played, Goodell said in an email Wednesday: “I don’t necessarily agree with what he is doing.” “I support our players when they want to see change in society, and we don’t live in a perfect society,” Goodell added. “On the other hand, we believe very strongly in patriotism in the NFL. I personally believe very strongly...

    Democratic vice-presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine (D., Va.) said Thursday that “you’ve got to respect” San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to sit down during the national anthem as a sign of protest of America’s treatment of minorities, adding he would do it differently if it were him. At Thursday night’s game against the San Diego Chargers, which will feature a Salute to the Military event, Kaepernick is expected to sit again during the national anthem. Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos asked Kaine about it during the latter’s run of media appearances Thursday morning. “You’re the father of...

    Donald Trump stressed his push for increased patriotism in a speech to the American Legion this morning. Specifically, he said that a shared goal of the Trump administration and the American Legion, a veterans' association, is "promoting American pride and patriotism in America’s schools." "We want young Americans to recite the pledge of allegiance," Trump said. "We will stop apologizing for America, and we will start celebrating America. We will be united by our common culture, values and principles -- becoming one American nation. One country, under one constitution, saluting one American flag. And always saluting it," he said.
