    Frederick Douglass spent the entirety of his adult life fighting tirelessly for black people and women to be recognized as full United States citizens. Douglass, a famous black abolitionist in the 1800s, used Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence as the foundation of his argument to end slavery. That’s why it struck me as ill-informed that Colin Kaepernick would use Douglass’ What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July speech as the audio backdrop for his incendiary tweet condemning America’s Independence Day. Kap, aka Mute-hammad Ali, tweeted Saturday morning: “Black people have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized and terrorized by America...
  • Trump’s Mount Rushmore Speech Has Already Saved Statues

    Something remarkable happened over the weekend after President Trump gave his address at Mount Rushmore. As was to be expected, the mainstream media deplored the speech as “dark and divisive,” but it was also immediately effective. Here’s how. In order to absurdly portray Trump’s speech as a racist appeal to disaffected white voters, the media and the Democrats had to pretend that Trump was only defending confederate statues when he spoke about our nation’s monuments. Now, this is obviously an outright and outrageous lie, but in this case the perfidy of fake fact outfits like the New York Times and...

    We’ve lived through six weeks of hate, chaos, destruction, and demonstrative insurrection by the BLM-Antifa alliance. And this psychotic turmoil followed three months of coronavirus scare-mongering that held us hostage inside our homes. Many of us remain restricted by authoritarian governors to this day, leftist leaders who are indiscriminately criminalizing behaviors of the healthy instead of quarantining the sick. Having spent this 4th of July with wonderful American patriots (who disagree politically, by the way, but remain strong patriots nonetheless), it made me long for those classic American summers: kids playing outside, summer parades and fairs, going to the beach,...

    As fireworks fill the night sky on the Fourth of July, people will surely notice the changes taking place to the full moon, the first of the summer season, as it slowly changes color. Though the lunar change will be subtle, a one-hundred-year-old prophecy warns that this eclipse is in omen that should the nations force Israel to give up land in Israel, a foreign leader will pay with his life. A lunar eclipse takes place when the earth is between the sun and the moon, and the moon passes through the earth’s shadow. The Fourth of July will present...

    Many elites in the media this week have cited abolitionist Frederick Douglass’s famous 1852 speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” as evidence of the former slave’s condemnation of America, and another excuse for them to express derision about the United States on its birthday. If they read the whole speech, however, they’d see it is in fact a testament of support for our nation’s founding principles and gives even more reason to celebrate the Fourth of July and American patriotism.The historic speech was given on July 5, 1852, in Corinthian Hall to a white audience of...

    It's fair to say that a week doesn't go by where President Trump doesn't want to be the center of attention. That being the case, he must be well-satisfied with events leading up to the Fourth of July. He succeeded in creating another full-blown media panic about the erosion of democracy and the collapse of civilian control of the military, all because he is behaving like a dictator. The "news" manufacturers wanted us to know Trump was bending the national holiday into a celebration of his love of self. The Washington Post kicked off the hate-filled hyperbole when Trump first...

    Last Thursday, President Trump gave an hour-long speech celebrating the United States of America. If you talked to the ordinary Americans in the crowd attending the speech, they liked it. They liked it, in particular, because it celebrated America, according to folks interviewed by Kristina Wong. “The show was very patriotic. I’m glad we got the politics out of it. And we were just joined as a nation to celebrate our great nation,” a father and Marine Corps veteran from Maryland said. “I thought it was beautiful,” his wife said. Of course, the speech was full of politics. The President...

There are no cannons, and their optics have been glued on with adhesive tape,” co-host Olga Skabeyeva claimed during the program. “Americans are allowed to hold a parade because theirs is democratic, but we are not allowed because ours is chauvinistic,”...

Yea, it was worth it.” Other attendees echoed his sentiments. “The show was very patriotic. I’m glad we got the politics out of it.

    Sen. Ted Cruz responded Thursday night after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted a passage earlier on the Fourth of July from a famous speech by Civil War-era abolitionist Frederick Douglass. The passage Kaepernick cites is from Douglass’ speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” Douglass delivered to the speech at a meeting of the Rochester Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society in Rochester, N.Y., on July 5, 1852 – nearly nine years before the Civil War began. But the former San Francisco 49ers signal-caller includes a video montage of a longer version of the speech, accompanied by drawings depicting...

    On the same day that the Declaration of Independence became official, a telling event further reveals that our founders understood well the “ancient principles” upon which our republic must be built. On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress appointed a committee -- consisting of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams -- to design an official seal for the United States. Adams proposed an image of Hercules contemplating the persuasions of Virtue and Sloth. Franklin proposed a biblical theme: Moses standing on the Shore, and extending his Hand over the Sea, thereby causing the same to overwhelm Pharaoh who...

    On this our Constitutional Republic’s 243rd Birthday, let us consider what our Founding Fathers said about where the destructive and misguided progressives are leading us over the abyss of allowing our nation to fail.  George Washington, the successful General-in-Chief who lead our Army to eventual but not pre-ordained victory over Britain, and our twice unanimously elected president said this about our freedom of speech that is being abused by the left:“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” If the progressives have their way, and they are gaining momentum...

    Over 40 Gold Star mothers and wives gathered on the U.S. Capitol lawn for the anti-socialism “Rally for Freedom,” joined by outspoken conservative actor Jon Voight on Independence Day. Voight said that our fallen heroes risked everything, just like the nation’s Founding Fathers. The Gold Star women wanted to take a stand against what they say is the radical socialist agenda pushed by the extreme left and remember their fallen heroes, who risked everything for the sake of liberty. Voight spoke at the event, saying those fallen heroes risked everything, just like the nation’s Founding Fathers. “I’m an actor, so...
