  • Was This Our Last Fourth of July?

    07/12/2020 4:32:52 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | July 12, 2020 | Wayne Allyn Root
    Was this past weekend the last time we will celebrate the Fourth of July? Right now, that certainly looks possible. In 2014, I wrote the book "The Murder of the Middle Class." Don't look now, but sadly ... tragically ... it's really happening. The left is crazy, extreme, radical, violent and ready for civil war. The Republican right -- outside of President Trump -- is a bunch of pathetic wimps ready to raise the white flag. We are the closest we've ever been to losing America. Have you ever seen as many spineless Republican politicians as we see today? Black...

    As if orders went out from a central director, nearly every major media outlet flat-out lied about President Trump's speech.When Sen. Bob Dole accepted the Republican nomination for president in 1996, his speech hit on the themes of “honor, decency and straight talk.” He proudly mentioned the great Republican Abraham Lincoln and explicitly denounced racism.“The Republican Party is broad and inclusive. It represents many streams of opinion and many points of view. But if there’s anyone who has mistakenly attached themselves to our party in the belief that we are not open to citizens of every race and religion, then...
  • Stop Misquoting The Great Abolitionist Frederick Douglass To Slander America

    Black Lives Matter activists cite Douglass’s 1852 speech ‘What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?’ as proof America is evil. They utterly miss his point. Last week on CNN, as contributor Angela Rye accused White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnaney and President Trump of failing to understand the history of black America, she referred to the legendary Frederick Douglass. “Frederick Douglass said about Independence Day in this country, what to the slave is the Fourth of July?” she said. “And I would invite them to even start there, as a reading principle, to see how different we see...

    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...

    This cacophony comes from a sliver of society, with their voices amplified by a media selling an election year controversy to cripple President Trump. Donald Trump did not launch the latest culture war: The left-leaning press, political foes, Marxist-believing activists, and corporate and educational institutions did. When President Trump stood before a patriotic crowd on Friday night, under the watchful eyes of our country’s greatest presidents, his pronouncement that the silent majority will not retreat or surrender our founding principles was not divisive. It was American. On the eve of Independence Day, our 45th president proclaimed the truths on which...

    Far-left protesters burned an American flag near the White House on Saturday and chanted, "America was never great" moments after President Trump finished delivering a speech at the "Salute to America" Independence Day celebration. Video shows the flag being burned in Black Lives Matter Plaza, just outside the White House. Activists can be heard chanting, "One, two, three, four, slavery, genocide and war. Five, six, seven, eight, America was never great."The flag burning was organized by the Revolutionary Communist Party. A speak-out before the event was held by Refuse Fascism, which also held protests nationwide on July Fourth calling for...

    President Trump decided to celebrate our nation’s birthday and in doing so, set off a meltdown not seen in quite a while from the media. Who am I kidding? It was a day that ends in “y” with these clowns. If Trump said the sky was blue, they would dole out endless articles attacking him. Trump decided to kick off the Fourth of July weekend by delivering a speech and fireworks show at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. That really set off the Left. And it didn’t stop there. This whole weekend is going to be grade-A Trump derangement entertainment...

    Does anybody else remember the 2011 Harvard “study” that led to headlines like these all around the country? Fourth of July Celebrators More Likely to Become Republicans (ABC News) Attending a Fourth of July fireworks display or flag waving parade as a child slightly increases the likelihood that that kid will grow up to vote Republican, according to a study a team of Harvard University researchers. Even a single July 4 celebration boosts the chance of turning a kid into a Republican, the study claims. "One Fourth of July without rain before age 18 increases the likelihood of identifying as...

    <p>Yesterday, we celebrated the 244th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Those brave men who signed that document agreed to “mutually pledge to each other our lives, our property, and our sacred honor” to the cause of independence. All these years later, there are mobs in the street betraying the oath those men risked everything for. They seek a nation of co-dependence and control. They’re getting their way not because of their numbers or agreements; they’re getting it because our so-called leaders are standing down, waiting for them to grow up or burn out. They won’t. It’s time to fight back.</p>

    When was the last time you read the Declaration of Independence? REALLY READ IT. Have you tried to understand what our founders thought about how a government should be empowered? It’s an incredible document when talking about freedom. It’s a nasty letter when talking about the King of England. It starts off by saying that the government serves at the will of the people not the other way around: When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of...

    Just caught a few minutes of it. Some young, black activist talking about the nation needing to work on its promises followed immediately by "Lady A" (Gee, they get picked shortly after they sided with the left and dropped the Antebellum. I'm sure that's just a coincidence...). Now it's the Black Eyed Peas. Won't be watching a second more. Usual pop culture trash with an extra serving of leftist nonsense. No thanks.

    Brothers and sisters in the Lord, To hear the words of the Declaration of Independence can still bring a shiver to my spirit. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” These words sparked the American Revolution, providing our nation, then and now, with an ideal that still inspires, and also still needs to be accomplished for all our citizens. We live in a nation founded on a set of principles, enshrined in...

    On this day in 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the United States Declaration of Independence in what is now known as Independence Hall in Philadelphia.  In taking this historic step, the Congress proclaimed “these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States.”  Today, we celebrate our Nation’s independence and the vision of our Founding Fathers revealed to the world on that fateful day, as well as the countless patriots who continue to ensure that the flames of freedom are never extinguished.The enduring commitment to the ideals of liberty and justice that have come...
