  • What is a Christian Nationalist? If you follow Jesus and you love America, you must be feared.

    On MSNBC “award-winning investigative journalist” (from Politico) Heidi Przybyla said this recently:Remember when Trump ran in 2016? A lot of the mainline evangelicals wanted nothing to do with the divorced real-estate mogul who cheated on his wife with a porn star and all of that, right? So what happened was, he was surrounded by this more extremist element. You’re going to hear words like Christian Nationalism, like the new apostolic reformation. These are groups that you should get very schooled on because they have a lot of power in Trump’s circle. And the one thing that unites all of them...

    t’s hard to understand what Israel is going through without taking measure of the yawning chasm between Israel’s patriotic citizenry and its progressive elites. For most Israelis, a powerful instinct of self-preservation kicked in on Oct. 7, and they responded with the rage and determination one would expect from a healthy society. Israel’s progressive elites also responded as one would expect: Regaining their balance after the initial shock, they fell back on their usual wariness of patriotism. For them, the instinct of self-preservation itself is part of the problem, not part of the solution. This chasm has vast political implications,...

    Ron DeSantis has further alienated the America First conservatives he hoped to win over from Donald Trump’s base by disparaging January 6th protestors, denying they were motivated by patriotism.Speaking at a CNN town hall, the Florida Governor was asked if “the January 6th insurrections display[ed] patriotism, as some of them claim they did” by an audience member.“No, of course not,” DeSantis replied immediately. “I mean, that was not a good day for the country. I think the media has taken that, and I think the left has taken that, and really tried to politicize it, but it was not a...

    "A Merry American Christmas” by Kate Smith, 1941 Columbia 36443 This record was released in 1941 and recorded before the US entered World War 2. It is a fitting song for what transpired on December 7, 1941, to help soldiers and their families as the war started and progressed. Years of horror were to come but I am sure this song by a very popular singer of her day helped many folks through the holiday seasons of the war. Kate Smith was one of my mother’s favorite singers as she grew up. They were about the same age and my...

    Every few years, a real-life inspirational sports drama hits the big screen — think "American Underdog," "The Blindside" and "Chariots of Fire" — and reminds audiences of just how extraordinarily resilient humans can be when bolstered by a robust support system and personal ambition. George Clooney's "The Boys in the Boat" is the latest film in this genre celebrating the values of a past era, specifically, teamwork over individualism and humility over personal ambition. Releasing in theaters on Christmas Day and starring Joel Edgerton, Callum Turner and Hadley Robinson, "The Boys in the Boat" is based on Daniel James Brown's...

    A disheartening new poll conducted by the Echelon Insights research institute purports to show that 72% of American voters would not be willing to volunteer to fight for their country if the United States faced a major conflict. The poll of 1,029 likely voters, obtained by Newsweek, was conducted October 23-26, in the days following the heinous Hamas terror attacks against Israel on October 7.That the overwhelming majority of U.S. adults apparently would not be willing to serve in the United States military if the country faced another major war is concerning to say the least, especially given extreme tensions...

    Many leading Republicans and conservatives want someone other than Donald Trump to run for President in 2024. But this judgment requires an assessment of Trump’s vices and virtues in the context of our current political and cultural circumstances, as well as an assessment of other prospective Republican presidential candidates. Tom Klingenstein, Chairman of the Claremont Institute, explains Trump's Virtues.

    West Point has a storied place in American history. During the Revolution, Benedict Arnold tried to give the fort to the British. After the Revolution, it became America’s first military academy, graduating such luminaries as Ulysses S. Grant, Dwight Eisenhower, Generals Omar Bradley, Douglas MacArthur, and George S. Patton, and many other men who have shaped our nation. All the alumni were driven by patriotism even if, as with Robert E. Lee, that patriotism was misplaced. Now, though, West Point has a “minor” that is the essence of anti-patriotism. Welcome to West Point’s Diversity and Inclusion Studies Minor.West Point describes...

    The United States is a divided mess as Democrats have encouraged tribalism in their efforts to gain power, splitting us apart. Patriotism is at a low point. Fox reported most voters think America’s best days are a thing of the past. Rubbish. When America turned four score and seven, Americans were slaughtering one another at Gettysburg and Vicksburg. America became great again by the time its centennial arrived. The deterioration and abandonment of Manhattan in the late 1960s and early 1970s gave way to the tall ships arriving in New York Harbor to celebrate the bicentennial. The nation was 130...

Of course, the blue-and-yellow-clad fans and players were ecstatic. But the next most excited observers were actually Americans — specifically the ones who, you know, like America.Rapinoe’s fan club — which includes corporate media, LGBT advocates, and the stans in the White House, among...

    A talking head on MSNBC has called for a post 9/11 style government crackdown as a means of winning “a battle for hearts and minds” of Americans who might turn against the leftist mindset and become overly patriotic. Paul Rieckhoff, founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and Righteous Media compared the “threat” of such a scenario to the “number one threat” after 9/11, effectively suggesting conservatives and Trump supporters are akin to terrorists. “A lot of Americans are up for grabs. I wouldn’t dismiss it as just something only people on the right or watching Fox News latch...

  • America Does Not Have To Face Decline: Only 39% of Americans described themselves as “extremely” proud to be an American

    Patriotism in America continues to hover near record lows, according to Gallup’s most recent survey. While this may not be a five-alarm fire for those of us who truly love this country – after all, roughly two-thirds of Americans responded that they were either “extremely” or “very” proud to be Americans – it is certainly a cause for concern that should be addressed. As we celebrate the birth of this great country, it is worth examining potential reasons pride in America is on the decline and rehashing why America is a nation worth loving in the first place. Only 39%...

    What, precisely, is it about America you love? That’s the question this July 4 as just 29% of Democrats say they’re extremely proud of the country, accompanied by just 33% of Independents and 60% of Republicans. In fact, Democratic love of country has always fallen far behind that of Republicans, even during the Obama era, when it hit a temporary high of just over 50% (Republicans at the time said they were extremely proud of the country at a rate of approximately 70%). Why is it that liberals in the United States are so much less proud of America than...

Jamaal Bowman. “We are not free until everyone is truly free.” “The Declaration of Independence was written by enslavers and didn’t recognize Black people as human,” declared Rep. Cori Bush on Twitter. “Today is a great day to demand Reparations Now.” The tweet signed off with a...
  • American patriotism remains near historic lows this Fourth of July

    WASHINGTON (TND) — On this Fourth of July, the percentage of people who say they’re proud to be an American is near historic lows. According to the results of a new Gallup poll, only 4 in 10 adults say they are “extremely proud to be an American.” "I feel like it’s declined. Like, just wearing the flag sometimes I feel like it’s sometimes a little bit mixed-up feelings," said Daniel, a Washington, D.C. resident visiting the National Mall on the holiday. Gallup's data shows Republicans are consistently more likely than Democrats and independents to express "extreme pride in being American,"...
