  • Loving SOTU 2020 (Vanity Post ????)

    As values crumble the supremely solid patriotism of Donald Trump still inspires me. 1945 teaches us that freedom matters. Covid, like Exodus, teaches us that death is part of God's gift. Lest We Forget.

    Vanity | September 12, 2021 | Jim Noble
    We sang patriotic songs in grade school (yes that makes me at higher risk of death from COVID). I’ve got a couplet stuck in my head from an old war song and even though everything is on the internet, I can’t find it anywhere. The lines are: “We did some fancy fighting down in Santiago Bay/And fixed it so Cervera found it hard to get away” Does anybody here know the song?
  • Nationalism vs. Patriotism: What's the Difference and Why it Matters

    09/06/2021 10:37:23 PM PDT · by ammodotcom · 13 replies ^ | 9/7/2021 | Sam Jacobs
    The terms “nationalism” and “patriotism” are often used interchangeably. This is understandable, as they have somewhat overlapping meanings, both of which suffer from a certain amount of vagueness. However, there are a number of key differences between the two that are worth shedding light on. In the final analysis, we believe that the term “nationalism,” while not denoting anything totalitarian by its nature, is not an accurate term for the sentiment that exists in the United States. Nationalism, it would seem, is more suited to Europe or Asia, places with historic nations, united by common language and ethnicity that are...

    American ^ | September 2, 2021 | Alan Halbert
    To prove the thesis that Democrats are making war on our people, Biden seems to be doing the bidding of China as it moves to exploit Afghanistan’s untapped mineral resources. Taiwan is now up for grabs too. If we look at Joe Biden’s deliberate acts in Afghanistan and what has actually happened, devoid of rhetoric, the results speak for themselves because actions matter. Joe just made the conditions in Afghanistan exponentially worse and kicked off a refugee crisis that has already cost 13 service members their lives and will soon create a hostage crisis for Americans left behind, including children....

    Source: Photo/Salena ZitoLEBANON, Kansas -- There is something uplifting about standing in the center point of the United States of America. It evokes a sense that is both spiritual and patriotic, particularly if you reach this point having traveled on both sides of the monument that marks the spot. There is a restorative energy you absorb, no matter where the back roads take you. You have to take time listening to folks in city neighborhoods, tree-lined suburbs and small towns. No one person's story is perfect. No situation or place is perfect. There is plenty of despair among people in...

    Amid the crisis taking place in Afghanistan, the Office of Naval Intelligence found time to remind active duty and retired service members not to say anything unflattering about the president’s deadly debacle. “Given the heightened political and social atmosphere surrounding Afghanistan, it is important to remind our uniformed personnel (active duty and reservists on temporary active duty) and military retirees of their responsibilities and obligations under Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and Department of Defense Directive 1344.10,” the email read. “While it is vital to protect the constitutional right of freedom of expression for these groups,...

    American athletes can make a lot of money demonizing their own country these days. The world stage of the Olympics, then, presents a prime opportunity to cash in on the lucrative industry of self-hatred. U.S. wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock however, took no shame in competing on behalf of the United States at the Tokyo games. Quite the opposite.“I love representing the U.S.! I freaking love living there,” Mensah-Stock told a reporter while draped in the stars and stripes upon winning the gold. “I’m so happy I get to represent U.S.A!”America’s Tamyra Mensah-Stock won gold at Tokyo in wrestling:“I love representing the...

    The “Woke Olympics” have been going on for a while. I’m not sure when it started or when it’s over as I have no interest in watching what has been billed as an athletic indictment against the greatest nation on earth.Thanks to American wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock, I may have to pay more attention. It seems that there are actual Olympians representing this country in Tokyo with the pride that was once indicative of the God-given opportunity. Watch the glee, humility, and patriotism exuding from this amazing person after winning the gold medal for women’s wrestling:Here’s an Olympic athlete worth rooting...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/03/2021 | Monica Showalter
    Many Americans are ignoring the Olympics this year based on the wokester politics of certain loudmouth Olympic athletes, some just itching to turn their podium moments into anti-U.S. protests. It's disgusting, given that they've chosen to compete under the U.S. flag. It not only comes off as the height of ingratitude, it indicates contempt for the American people as a whole, who love their flag and country. Who needs that crap? Many just say no, and not just 'no' but 'hell no,' and watch the Olympics to cheer the other team, a new phenomenon, which has been evident in all...

    “Sports is like a war without the killing,” once said Ted Turner, the founder of CNN whose greatest achievement is probably owning the Atlanta Braves.Cheering for your country on the field or in the stadium elicits competitive patriotism, giving nations around the world a chance to trample each other to victory without anybody getting shot. The Olympics offer this opportunity on a scale no other sporting competition does.

    Can you imagine what would happen to an Olympic athlete from China or North Korea if he or she decided to protest their national flag at a medal ceremony? That would likely be the last thing that person did as a free human being. That’s another reason why I appreciate the freedoms we have here in America. At the same time, that doesn’t mean that I have to like such protests at the Olympics. In point of fact, I don’t. That’s part of my freedom as an American, too. I can dislike such protests and I can say so openly....

    As an athlete, there are certain games that you never forget. Maybe it’s because of a play you made, the energy of the crowd, the stakes involved – or it could be something deeper. One of those games for me came in September of 2011, my senior year on the University of Arkansas football team. We were playing New Mexico, but that’s not why I remember it. We were commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11, and War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock had been transformed into a sea of red, white, and blue. Depending on the section you were in,...

    Christian Post ^ | 07/16/2021 | Dr. Richard Land
    Last week I shared with you the startling results of polling that only about a third of Americans aged 18-24 “were proud or very proud” of being American. I argued that one major reason for this dramatic falloff in patriotism was the infiltration of Critical Race Theory (CRT) into our nation’s public schools.Since then a very interesting column has been published acknowledging the lethal ability of CRT to splinter and undermine everything in American society by William A. Galston, “How Adherents see ‘Critical Race Theory.’” Galston served in the Clinton administration (1993-95) and is with the Brookings Institution. Having surveyed...

    These days, the younger generation is encouraged to despise their American birthright. According to this worldview, the United States was a force for oppression in centuries past, and racism, baked into the very structure of the republic, constitutes the true narrative of the American people. And what is this worldview’s solution to our country’s alleged ills? To tear down the existing order, cleanse it of its sins, and reeducate the youth such that they become activists against democracy, free speech, and free thought.This new mentality is driven by what some call “wokeness.” As I detail in my forthcoming book: Christianity...

It brought a tear to mine, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it brought a tear or two to yours, too. By its title, one would expect a booming July 4th anthem, perfect to play at the BBQ or on the boat. It isn’t. “Seems like everybody’s pissin’ on the red, white and blue,” sings Keith.“Happy birthday...

    A reporter for a Ukrainian television network asked to interview me this week for a 4,th of July story they’re running on declining American patriotism. He had read a piece I wrote on the topic, and seemed genuinely baffled as to why so many Americans, like Olympians Gwen Berry and Megan Rapinoe and so many others, are down on their country. It’s easy to understand his confusion. In the last six years, nearly five million Ukrainians hoping to move to the U.S. have applied for our green card lottery. How could I explain to this man why so many Americans...
