    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.

    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...

    Much of what American soldiers fought for in World War II has “gone down the drain,” according to U.S. Marine Carl Spurlin Dekel, who celebrated his 100th birthday last week. Dekel says serving his country in WWII was the most important thing he ever did, according to Fox 13. The veteran and Silver Star holder says he wouldn’t hesitate to put his life on the line again, but regrets that the U.S. has slipped away from what he remembers. “People don’t realize what they have,” Dekel told the outlet. “The things we did and the things we fought for and...

    Left-wingers are too distraught over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade to celebrate Independence Day this year. According to an interview conducted by Yahoo News with an anonymous woman, she has decided to skip the celebration of America by "staying home and catching up on chores" because she can no longer get an abortion. "I want the day to feel as normal as possible when everything around us is absolutely abnormal," she told Yahoo. The Pennsylvania native said that she refuses to partake in July 4 activities "as a direct result of my rights and bodily autonomy...

    Save Independence Day. It is clear to me that the left has embarked on a campaign to reduce Independence Day to nothing more than a meaningless "holiday". The push is to elevate Juneteenth to a holiday that is more meaningful. Over the last week I have noticed a concerted effort in the media to downplay Independence Day. Even a lot of conservative people are referring to it as the Fourth of July. Push back against this movement and only refer to it as Independence Day. Remember, those that control the language control the battle sphere.

    Thousands of supporters of far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro have descended on Brazil's economic and political capitals, hoping to rally behind the embattled president, sparking fears of a military coup. Bolsonaro is expected to address packed Independence Day rallies in Brasilia and Sao Paulo on Tuesday. The president has called for support for his attacks on the country's Supreme Court that has raised fears around South America's largest democracy. Bolsonaro on August 14 called on the Senate to bring charges against two Supreme Court justices, warning Brazil could face a political "institutional rupture" if the charges were not brought. One...
