    Protesters enraged by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address to Congress burned U.S. flags and raised Palestinian flags outside Union Station in Washington, D.C. Netanyahu's visit to Washington on Wednesday has provoked a series of dramatic demonstrations from protesters opposed to Israel's ongoing military assault in Gaza. Earlier in the day, maggots were dumped on a banquet table at Netanyahu's hotel, while fountains around the capital city were dyed blood red.

    PARIS -- US Open champion Coco Gauff will be the female flag-bearer for the United States at the Paris Olympics' opening ceremony, joining four-time NBA champion LeBron James, the American team said Wednesday. Gauff, 20, will be the first U.S. tennis player to carry the flag, three years after she was forced to miss the Tokyo Olympics when she tested positive for COVID. "I never thought in a million years I would have the honour of carrying the American flag for Team USA in the opening ceremony," Gauff said in a statement. "I could not be more proud to lead...

    The user posted a video showing the US flag fluttering in the air and becoming twisted. The now-tangled flag resembled a flying bird. The overlaying text on the video read, “The flag got tangled today at the Trump rally, before Trump came on stage. Looks like an angel.” The caption accompanying the post read, “What do you notice about the flag at the Trump rally before he came on stage yesterday?”

    Several dozen pro-abortion activists marched to Alaska’s Governor’s Mansion in Juneau to demand that Gov. Mike Dunleavy take down a pro-life flag that he flies next to the U.S. and Alaska flags. Chanting, “Our rights, our choice,” the protesters snaked through the State Capital – whooping and screaming as pedestrians looked on. One marcher, dressed in Game of Thrones’s styled battle garb, wielded a large metal sword, which she jabbed into the air while joining the cacophony of voices railiing against any effort to protect unborn babies from abortion. Organized by Juneau Pro-Choice Coalition, the June 22 rally took place...

    Mainers are going to decide in November whether to adopt a new flag, but the state needs to settle on a design first. Anyone can submit a design proposal as long as it's based on the state's original flag, which featured a simple pine tree and blue star against an off-white background. Secretary of State Shenna Bellows announced the flag contest Friday. The deadline is July 19.
  • Mother of slain cop tears into Democrat town council for causing her a 'world of hurt' by refusing to fly the 'Thin Blue Line' flag in his honor and instead flying LGBTQ rainbow banner (@ half-mast - Wethersfield, Connecticut)

    The mother of a cop killed in the line of duty has slammed a town council for causing her a 'world of hurt' by refusing to fly the 'Thin Blue Line' flag in another dead officer's honor. Democrat-run Wethersfield town council in Connecticut stirred controversy this month by voting down an attempt to have the Thin Blue Line flag flown in honor of Aaron Pelletier who was killed in the line of duty on May 30. The motion failed 5-3 after the Democrats said the flag is racist and chose to fly the rainbow LGBT flag, that was already scheduled...

    American Thinker ^ | 19 Jun, 2024 | James Erwin
    One of the silliest controversies of late has been the recent hyperventilation at the New York Times over the flags Justice Samuel Alito has flown over his properties. Many conservatives have rightly argued that this is the latest attempt by the left to delegitimize the conservative majority on the Supreme Court, but it is also about far more -- it’s an attempt to delegitimize the entire American founding. For the uninitiated, the New York Times has run a series of reports about which flags the good Justice and his wife have flown over their properties. Mrs. Alito raised an upside-down...

    In the wake of newly released video of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) acknowledging she should have asked for a National Guard presence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, the former House Speaker declared Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that former “Republicans have always tried to wrap themselves in the flag while they denigrate it.” Host Nicolle Wallace said, “If this campaign is waged around big things like the flag, which Trump supporters denigrated on the day of the insurrection when they held it upside down, an upside down flag, also on the property, the Virginia property of Supreme Court...

    SPOKANE, WA — The three teenagers who were arrested for riding scooters on a Pride flag painted on the road were kicking themselves for not simply lighting the American flag on fire and threatening violence instead. "I guess we picked the wrong flag," said one of the teens, whose name has been withheld for anonymity. "I had no idea the Pride flag was so much more sacred than the American flag." According to sources, the teenagers were surprised to learn they could deface statues, light smoke bombs outside the White House, hold up a bloody mask of the President, threaten...

    An investigation has been launched after a veterans memorial was vandalized in California, shocking locals who celebrate at the site every year. The memorial is located in Morgan Hill, a small city near San Francisco. It's a popular downtown gathering place, hosting services on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Early on Sunday morning, locals discovered that the US flag hanging at the site had been burned and a plaque had been defaced. The perpetrator remains unknown but the Morgan Hill Police Department suspects that the attack occured overnight on Saturday and said that officers are continuing their investigation, according to...

    The Blaze ^ | May 30, 2024 | Joseph Mackinnon
    Democrats and their allies in the liberal media launched a smear campaign against Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito earlier this month in an effort to prompt his recusal from upcoming cases related to former President Donald Trump and the Jan. 6 protests. Jodi Kantor, running lead on the initiative for the New York Times, failed to land a decisive blow with her May 16 flag story, which the Washington Post had years earlier wrote off as a nothing-burger. Meatless, but desperate for results, Kantor found another flag to concern-monger about: the "Appeal to Heaven" flag, also known as the Pine...

    Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts rejected Democrats’ request on Thursday to have a meeting about flags raised at the properties of Justice Samuel Alito, pointing to “separation of powers concerns.” Unable to expand the court with more liberal justices, Democrats have been casting doubt on Justice Alito’s ability to remain impartial after the New York Times published two stories showing an upside-down American flag and an Appeal to Heaven flag displayed in Alito’s front yard. The Times linked the flags to Trump supporters, “Stop the Steal,” and January 6 protesters who have more recently adopted those historic symbols. Following...

    It's no surprise that San Francisco is run by a bunch of insurrectionists. How many of us secretly believed that the city was only barely American in the first place? There is even a Nelson DeMille book in which the ultra-conservative baddies plan on nuking San Francisco because it was full of anti-American zealots. It's hard to argue with their reasoning about S.F., but I would never endorse nuking any city, no less one as beautiful as the City by the Bay. Still, you wouldn't expect the city fathers (mothers? Nonbinary caregivers? Degenerate lawmakers? What should I call them?) to...

    Take heart, dear reader. While it is excruciating to endure the latest political crisis manufactured by Democrats and the leftwing news media, I advise a different approach. Smile. Laugh. Cackle like Kamala. Why? The absurd flag-flying scandal, undoubtedly annoying to Justice Samuel Alito and his family, is all the proof we need that decisions pending at the U.S. Supreme Court will not go the Democrats’ way. And it is killing them to the point of debasement and emotional immolation. Yay! Two critical questions before the court will determine whether Donald Trump faces trial in Washington, D.C. this year on Special...

    Appealing to heaven is “provocative,” says The New York Times. The Times reported Wednesday that—gasp—Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito flew an “Appeal to Heaven” flag last year at his vacation home in New Jersey. “Another Provocative Flag Was Flown at Another Alito Home,” reads the Times’ headline. The story comes on the heels of a media-concocted “scandal” revealing that Alito flew an upside-down flag outside his house for a few days in early 2021. We are led to believe that the first incident means that Alito is a violent, insurrectionist supporter of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot or something. Alito...
