  • MSNBC's Katy Tur: George Washington a 'Native Son of New York'

    Barack Obama is going to have to school Katy Tur on the famous sons of all the 57 states . . . If ever there were a famous Virginian, it is George Washington. Born and raised in Virginia, Mount Vernon was, of course, his historic home. Yet somehow, a confused Katy Tur has claimed that Washington was a "native son of New York." Her embarrassing gaffe occurred today on MSNBC, as Tur handed off the MTP Daily hour to Ari Melber and The Beat. ARI MELBER: Hi, Katy. I wanted to wish you a happy Presidents Day. TUR: You know,...

USA Today reports a wave of protests have been planned from New York to California and Texas to oppose the president’s national emergency declaration. A number of demonstrations are being planned by the liberal advocacy group,, and others have been listed on Rally List. “Donald Trump has declared a #FakeNationalEmergency—an...

    The term "progressive" is simply another way of saying "socialist" or "Marxist;" California’s elected Democrats are pushing for a communist holiday, at the expense of a U.S. President’s Day. Remember during the Cold War when “better dead than Red?” was the thinking? History repeats itself because evil never goes away.
  • California Bill Wants To Drop Washington/Lincoln’s Birthday And Replace It With Communist Holiday

    The California Assembly discussed Thursday a bill that would replace Abraham Lincoln or George Washington’s birthday with International Socialist Workers’ Day as a paid holiday. California Democrat Assemblyman Miguel Santiago introduced Bill AB-3042, which would allow schools to replace Washington Day and Lincoln Day with Presidents’ Day and install an “International Workers’ Day” — conventionally known as “May Day” — as a second holiday. “I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee,” California Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper said to the Assembly. “Are we in competition to be the laughing stock of the United States?”...

    Sure doesn't sound like it The “Not My President” protests on Presidents Day were further evidence that liberals are simply against anything and anybody Trump! When Tucker Carlson asked a protester on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to name one specific thing they were protesting against, he shifted the subject to other protests that had occurred. His apparent point was that a lot of people are anti-Trump, but he could not name one serious policy he’s against, other than the fact that Trump has not released his tax returns.

    Another successful Presidents Day caper. The entire mini-vacay in Aspen would have flown completely under the radar butt for the smarty-pants who got his panties in a bundle just because he was inconvenienced a little bit (several hours) waiting for Lady M’s plane to clear air space so the plebes could take off. And then some reporter at the Aspen Daily News had to blab the story from Aspen Police Chief Brian Olson about Lady M’s motorcade being allowed to “sneak through while they waited on tow trucks.” Do you see why she hates her FLOTUS gig? When Big Guy...

    Civic leaders, activists, artists and others are celebrating, marching and paying homage Monday to Martin Luther King Jr., marking the 30th anniversary of the federal holiday honoring the slain civil rights leader. In South Carolina, civil rights leaders planned a march to their state capitol as in past years when their rally highlighted calls to remove the Confederate flag from Statehouse grounds. The King Day at the Dome gathering began in 2000 with that call. Last July, organizers got their wish as South Carolina swiftly removed the flag which had flown at the capitol for more than 50 years after...
  • Cheap Laughs: A Weekly Review of the New York Times

    The third Monday of February is President’s Day, when we celebrate the birthday of George Washington, at least when we’re not pre-occupied with President’s Days sales. This year the holiday fell on the 16th, and predictably the New York Times chose this day to publish a hatchet job on our first President. You see, for the op-ed page editors of the Times, America (or Amerikkk with an A!) is a fundamentally flawed, perhaps uniquely evil country. And so on a regular basis they will print the See How Bad America Was Back Then (And Still Is) op-ed piece. The Times’...

    Acton PowerBlog ^ | February 17 | Ray Nothstine
    Sometimes I recoil a little when somebody declares that there can be an American president greater than George Washington. Henry “Light-Horse Harry” Lee declared Washington, “First in the hearts of his countrymen.” Washington is great for many things, but perhaps he is greatest for the manner in which he surrendered power not once but twice. One of the best recent commentaries written on Washington is David Boaz’s, “The Man Who Would Not Be King.” In the piece from 2006, Boaz wonderfully sums up the depth of Washington’s immense character and what that means for liberty and America. The entire commentary...

    I just had to use a search engine and went to Bing. They have a beautiful picture of George Washington taken in silhouette from Mount Rushmore. I then went to Google. Their page is empty. No doodle. I feel beyond sad. I know this probably comes as no surprise to you all here, but I'm just sad. It seems that all today is is just a day to get fabulous sales at department stores, and not about our Presidents. I just wanted to say I feel sad over this and this might be the only place I know who have...
  • George Washington's Birthday

    02/17/2014 6:47:10 AM PST · by kristinn · 12 replies
    George Washington's Birthday is celebrated as a federal holiday on the third Monday in February. It is one of eleven permanent holidays established by Congress. Federal holidays apply only to the federal government and the District of Columbia; Congress has never declared a national holiday binding in all states and each state decides its own legal holidays. George Washington was born in Virginia on February 11, 1731, according to the then-used Julian calendar. In 1752, however, Britain and all its colonies adopted the Gregorian calendar which moved Washington's birthday a year and 11 days to February 22, 1732. Americans celebrated...

    HARI SREENIVASAN: Finally tonight – the connection. As far as everyone is concerned, tomorrow is Presidents’ Day, and many of the advertisements would lead you to believe that it’s a celebration of two of America’s greatest presidents: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. [TELEVISION COMMERCIALS] But despite what almost everyone believes, tomorrow is not a national holiday known as Presidents’ Day, even the Interior Department apparently isn’t in on the secret. Under a federal law passed in 1968, the third Monday of February was officially designated as “Washington’s birthday.” No mention at all of honest Abe. HAROLD HOLZER: Lincoln has never...
