    Ben & Jerry’s has called on the US to give back “stolen Indigenous land” including Mount Rushmore — and now a Native American chief in Vermont said he’d like to talk about the land that’s under the ice cream maker’s headquarters. The “Chunky Monkey” maker — which previously has waded into controversies around Israel and Palestine — divided customers this week with a July 4 tweet that said: “The United States was founded on stolen indigenous land. This Fourth of July, let’s commit to returning it.” Ben & Jerry’s added that the US should “start with Mount Rushmore,” writing, “The...

  • Jill Biden Has To Remind Joe To Say ‘God Bless America’ On July 4th And he still wouldn’t say it

    As Joe Biden rambled about something his grandmother used to say to him while wrapping up a July 4th speech, his own wife had to remind him to say ‘God Bless America’, which he still didn’t do. Instead, he said ‘God protect our troops’. Watch: VIDEO AT LINK................. Biden then proceeded to take a big deep sniff of his wife’s hair: VIDEO AT LINK................. Biden’s approval has hit new lows, with A CIVIQS rolling job-approval average showing that 18 months into his term, Biden’s job approval stands at just 30 per cent, while 57 per cent disapprove of the job...

    Deeply moved by the power of the Declaration’s words, George Washington ordered copies sent to all generals in the Continental Army.Most Americans celebrating the July 4 holiday today don’t fully realize that the power of ideas in the Declaration of Independence was the critical enabling factor for the Americans to win the War of Independence. Compared to the British professional military, the American colonial army was simply no match—it was undermanned, underfunded, underequipped, inexperienced, and undertrained. At the outset of the war, the British Royal Navy had 270 warships deployed in American waters, while the Continental Navy had seven ships.On...

    Article V Blog ^ | July 3rd 2020 | Rodney Dodsworth
    Independence Day makes Progressives squirm. They despise the principles of the American Revolution. If they could, their scotus judges would gut the Declaration as thoroughly as they have the Constitution. To them, our Noble Declaration, this expression of God-given reason subverts social justice; they are right. Since the Declaration is indeed hostile to their moral relativism, the Left has long attempted to minimize our founding to a fuzzy faith in the people. The “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” and “all men are created equal,” translates in their Marxist minds as widespread democracy accompanied with equal...

    When the city of Friendswood, Texas, announced on Facebook that hometown hero Haley Carter would be the grand marshal for the town’s famed Fourth of July parade, the post was peppered with excited comments. Carter, who was in the Marines and is a retired professional soccer player, was just the type of person residents wanted to see lead the parade. Then the right-wing culture warriors showed up. Conservative radio host Jesse Kelly tweeted the same day that Friendswood had appointed a “gun-grabber” who is “into drag” and “trans activism” to lead the parade. Kelly is from Ohio, ran a failed...

    It is the age-old problem. Balancing buns. Whether you are doing the math of 8 hot dogs in a package and 12 buns in a bag, or half your guests are eating their burgers "keto-style" on slabs of lettuce, it seems inevitable that you will wake up the morning after any backyard barbecue with a lot more leftover buns than you have leftover meat to put in them. And we all know that despite the logic, thinking of them as bread for sandwiches tends to not go over terribly well with kids. Related—The Best New Idea for a Summer Party...

    Every year on July 4, Americans celebrate a miracle: the founding of the United States of America. Our Declaration of Independence has 1,337 eloquent words, crafted by Thomas Jefferson and the 56 members of the Second Continental Congress. Those words turned the world upside down. To this day, our Declaration of Independence is the only seminal document of any nation on earth to pay homage to God Almighty. No other founding instrument reflects on "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," nor does any other proclaim all people are "created equal" and "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable...

It brought a tear to mine, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it brought a tear or two to yours, too. By its title, one would expect a booming July 4th anthem, perfect to play at the BBQ or on the boat. It isn’t. “Seems like everybody’s pissin’ on the red, white and blue,” sings Keith.“Happy birthday...

    On June 7 of 1776, the Continental Congress met in Philadelphia to consider the independence of the American colonies from Great Britain. It took weeks of debate, but on July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was formally adopted.

As we celebrate Independence Day 2021, it is time to declare our independence once again and break free from oppressive rulers. Instead of a British King, Americans must now declare...

    When I was a little girl, my mother told me, "Always be grateful you're an American. There's no greater blessing." Mom was right and no one expressed this more beautifully than pioneer Laura Ingalls Wilder in "Little Town on the Prairie" when she described DeSmet's 1882 Independence Day Celebration: Beside the flagpole a man rose up tall above the crowd. He was standing on something. The sound of talking died down, and he could be heard speaking. “Well, boys,” he said, “I’m not much good at public speaking, but today’s the glorious Fourth. This is the day and date when...
