    ALAMEDA, Calif. - Patriotic colors and American flags filled the streets of Alameda Tuesday, but for some parade attendees, the signs of freedom carry special meaning on this Independence Day, including many veterans. The city of Alameda says its annual July 4th parade is the longest in the nation, with a route spanning 3.3 miles and drawing more than 60,000 people. "I used to come here as a kid, so I wanted to bring my kids," Melissa Poli of South San Francisco said. "This is the best parade." People packed Park Street to get a glimpse of the floats, horses,...

    Republican 2024 presidential candidate and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott said Tuesday that citizens should celebrate instead of cancel the nation's founding fathers for their wisdom in creating the system of government we have."We are blessed to live in the greatest nation on God's green earth," Scott said Tuesday in a video on his campaign site celebrating Independence Day. "Our founding fathers were geniuses who should be celebrated, not canceled."The National Review reported in August 2022 that the University of Virginia's student newspaper called for the likeness and name of founder, and former President Thomas Jefferson, to be stripped from...
  • THE ETERNAL MEANING OF INDEPENDENCE DAY (Posted annually since 2004.)

    THE ETERNAL MEANING OF INDEPENDENCE DAY (2) President Calvin Coolidge celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1926, with a speech providing a magisterial review of the history and thought underlying the Declaration. His speech on the occasion deserves to be read and studied in its entirety. The following paragraph, however, is particularly relevant to the challenge that confronts us in the variants of the progressive dogma that pass themselves off today as the higher wisdom: "About the Declaration there is a finality that is exceedingly restful. It is often asserted that the world has...

    From the Supreme Court to America: Happy Individual Independence Day. OK, the court didn’t actually say that, but its key rulings did. The final cases rang out with a consistent clarity that the Constitution favors individual liberty over group rights and government power. The distinction is what helped make America different from the start, yet to witness the hysterical outcry against the rulings, fewer and fewer Americans understand the founding principles. Either that or they want to trash American exceptionalism so they can force everybody to think alike. You don’t have to read the opinions to see the pattern. You...

    American Thinker ^ | July 6, AD 2022 | John F Di Leo
    At 10:14 a.m. on July 4, 2022, a young man named Robert Crimo III allegedly aimed his rifle into the crowd at his hometown’s Independence Day parade and opened fire. Within moments, the Chicago suburban town of Highland Park was a scene of terrible carnage. Seven innocent people killed, more than 40 injured, at this writing. The alleged killer escaped the scene, but was caught that afternoon (we say “alleged,” because, while he has not yet been convicted, all sources agree that he was the perpetrator, without question). Compliments to the many law enforcement and medical professionals who dealt with...

    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...

    Police provided the public with details on Tuesday at a press conference, where they said that the rifle that was used was legally purchased. Robert Crimo III, 21, allegedly opened fire from a rooftop during the Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, and evaded arrest for hours. Police said that Primo wore women's clothing in an attempt to conceal himself, specifically to help cover up his face tattoos. He may have worn a wig during the shooting.

Both were U.S. Presidents, one elected the 2nd President and the other the 3rd. Download as PDF ... Once political enemies, they became close friends in later life. An awe swept America when they both died on the same day, JULY 4, 1826, exactly 50 years since they approved the Declaration of Independence. Their names were John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.

    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...
