    Trump Declares New Holiday: TanksgivingWASHINGTON D.C.—During a meeting with officials about Trump's Fourth of July tank parade, one of the men on Trump's staff jokingly said to another, "Happy Tanksgiving." The man—a father of four children (obviously)—was overheard by the president who immediately decided this "Tanksgiving" thing was a great idea. (SNIP) Tanksgiving will be the nation's first monthly holiday and will be celebrated the third Thursday of every month.

    President Trump said Monday he plans to hold another Fourth of July celebration next year on the National Mall, calling last week's "Salute to America" a "tremendous success." Trump boasted of the "incredible, big, beautiful crowds" that turned out for his speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial last Thursday despite rain that was at times quite heavy. "Based on its tremendous success we’re just making the decision — and I think we can say we’ve made the decision — to do it again next year, and maybe we can say for the foreseeable future," Trump said. The president announced...

    After a roaring success on Independence Day, President Trump announced from the White House Monday afternoon Salute to America will take place again next year. "I hope you all had a truly wonderful Independence Day weekend in spite of the heavy rain, and it was really heavy, we had a remarkable Salute to America on the National Mall. Incredible," Trump said. "Standing on the steps of the great Lincoln Memorial and looking out on the crowd, these incredible, big beautiful crowds braving the weather all the way back to the Washington Monument, we celebrated freedom and all of its magnificence...
  • Trump outmaneuvers the media on the 4th

    I got an email from my buddy Boomer out in Guam, a retired veteran of the Vietnam War, which contained the astute observation that the media had made July 4 all about Trump, while the president had made it all about America. My reaction was, "What a succinct way to sum up more than a week of total media madness." The truth of that is inescapable — in the run-up to the Fourth, the Mara Salvatrucha of the media had their machetes out, savagely hacking at Donald Trump's expressed wishes for a military presence in our nation's parade in our...

    Hillary Clinton is speaking out against President Donald Trump’s flashy display of military might for the Fourth of July, adding her voice to widespread criticisms of the event. “We need a strong national defense, but a president shouldn’t need it next to him in a parade to show his patriotism,” she wrote Thursday in a tweet.
  • Salon's Marcotte: Big Turnout for Trump's July 4th Speech Due to Racism

    Unlike many of her fellow leftists, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who despite the visual evidence absurdly claimed that the July 4 speech by President Donald Trump was "poorly attended," Salon politics writer Amanda Marcotte admitted the truth about the size of the large crowd. However, while conceding the evidence was true, Marcotte rationalized it by claiming the big turnout was due to..... racism. You could tell where Marcotte's fantasies were leading just by reading the subtitle of her article, "Don't forget this: Trump's fans are loyal, and stuck with him through his Fourth of July fiasco": "The grim determination of Trump's...

    The collective outcry by President Trump's critics over his Independence Day "Salute to America" was overblown, according to Marc Thiessen. Previous presidents have used the July 4 holiday to give speeches and hold events, Thiessen said Friday on "The Story." "Of all the stupid freakouts that we've had since DT was elected, this has got to be the stupidest of all time," Thiessen claimed. "There are a lot of people with egg on their face today. "The resistance told us that if we elected Donald Trump, there'll be tanks on the streets, and it was like it was finally happening."...
  • Trump's Patriotism Vs. The New Anti-Americanism

    Despite all the grousing and griping about his "politicizing" of the Fourth of July and "militarizing" America's birthday, President Donald Trump turned the tables on his antagonists, and pulled it off. As master of ceremonies and keynote speaker at his "Salute to America" Independence Day event, Trump was a manifest success. A president acting as president is almost always a more effective campaigner than a president acting as campaigner. And Trump, in what he said and did not say, played the president Thursday night. The crowd on the Mall was huge and friendly, extending from the Lincoln Memorial to the...

    If a tree falls in an isolated forest but no one hears it, does it still make a sound? If the United States, under President Donald J. Trump (R), celebrates American Independence Day, the 4th of July, with a powerful display of pride and patriotism in the nation's capital but the so called major networks refuse to televise it live, did it happen? It's a worthy question because that's what the big networks are planning to do. While scientists and philosophers may dispute the answer to the former question, the answer to the latter is a resounding "yes!" Oh sure,...

    “Why the hell would Jeb Bush post this today?”     Governor Jeb Bush provoked a backlash after he sent a strange tweet about presidents who died on July 4, with many taking it as a veiled dig at President Trump.“Three Presidents Die on July 4th: Just a Coincidence?” tweeted Bush along with a link to a story which explained how, “Three Founding Father Presidents—John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe—died on July 4.”

    President Trump’s July 4 “Salute to America” parade will feature the typical fireworks display but will also include a bevy of military hardware as the White House seeks to emphasize the U.S.’s military might. While the military’s display of force has sparked criticism among Democrats who say the parade will echo those of authoritarians and cost taxpayers upwards of $2.5 million, the president has repeatedly hyped the event. “People are coming from far and wide to join us today and tonight for what is turning out to be one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country, SALUTE...

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” 2020 presidential candidate South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) criticized President Trump’s plans for July 4th celebrations by stating that the event the president has planned “makes America look smaller.” Buttigieg said, “I think it makes America look smaller. One of the reasons I joined the military was that, in a small way, I wanted to be part of seeing to it that my country was not the kind of place where a leader feels the need to boost his own ego by rolling tanks down the streets of our capital. We’ve always...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A powerful earthquake jolted Southern California on Thursday, touching off house fires and damaging buildings in a desert town northeast of Los Angeles, but authorities said it has caused only minor injuries. The 6.4 magnitude quake, the largest in two decades in the area, struck about 113 miles (182 km) northeast of Los Angeles near the city of Ridgecrest at around 1:30 pm EDT (1730 GMT), according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The Kern County Fire Department said it was dealing with “multiple injuries,” two house fires, small brush fires and gas leaks.

The activists, opposing President Trump and calling for a "world without America," were met by a large counterprotest. The Secret Service arrested flag-burning activist Gregory "Joey" Johnson and at least two allies in the aftermath.

    The antiwar organization Code Pink brought its 20-foot-tall, diaper-clad balloon of an infant Donald Trump to the Washington Monument on Thursday to protest the president’s planned “Salute to America” Fourth of July celebration. Code Pink co-director Medea Benjamin said the organization and its members "oppose the politicization of the July Fourth holiday by President Trump." Trump has ordered the Pentagon to stage military demonstrations, including a flyover of jets, helicopters and other aircraft. Trump says he'll "speak on behalf of our great Country" at his "Salute to America" event on Thursday evening.
