About That Fourth Of July Parade
[With Comment By John]

Steve has heaped deserved ridicule on the left’s hysterical reaction to President Trump’s decision to roll out tanks and other weaponry for a Fourth of July parade in Washington, D.C. As Steve noted, Larry Tribe sees a “chilling resemblance to the days before the Tiananmen Square massacre. (Snip) the inspiration for Trump’s parade isn’t China or any other dictatorship. The inspiration is France’s annual July 14 celebration (Bastille Day). On a visit to France, Trump saw the parade, which features the military along with some of its heavy weaponry marching down the Champs-Élysées. He thought it was impressive.


What passes for their brains paralyzed by chronic TDS, the Lefties publicly show their ignorance… We have since seen photos of heavily armored parades under FDR, JFK (his included missiles), and other presidents. This is just TDS run amok.

Thanks a lot, liberals for not recognizing the obvious differences in the US Military versus the military forces employed by various totalitarian dictatorships. We can now really appreciate how dense and stupid you must be.

Have a blessed day today, and please remember exactly why we celebrate today. I recommend to you a movie on Amazon Prime Video called simply "George Washington." It tells the nuts and bolts of the Revolution, but also gives some background for the reasons we decided to fight and the great, bloody obstacles to holding out against the British until they agreed to our Independence. It is entertaining and informative and of high quality, not the filmstrips and 35mm documentaries we suffered through in school. For this one day at least, we can come together and remember why we fought against the country with the mightiest navy and the second mightiest army on earth. And we fought with no navy at all in the beginning, untrained town militia, and few regular troops.

"But it’s ludicrous to view the parade as in any way threatening." But Trump's mere existence on the planet is a threat to liberals. All the media says so. Listen to "The View". The gals will tell you. The interesting thing to me is that NOTHING that Trump has actually done, or even plans to do, has directly threatened the people who are making all the noise. They may disagree with Trump but just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make them a threat. The closest personal impact might be if abortion becomes more restricted. However, is being pregnant threatening? I get that it can mix up your life if you aren't ready for it. But threatening? How is rounding up illegal immigrants threatening to the Hollyweird crowd? How is calling the media liars, especially when it's true, a threat to the media? All the media has to do is tell the truth, something they should be doing anyway. I think the biggest threat is that Trump is shutting down the Left's gravy train. Money is no longer flowing so freely from Washington. Instead, people that earn their money are getting to keep more of it. The threat to the Left is that the people that hate America are getting pushed aside, just as they should be.

BROWNSVILLE, Texas – The threat of a rush by migrants seeking asylum led to the temporary closure of a local port-of-entry Thursday. The shutdown follows one day after authorities closed operations at a separate bridge where migrants rushed the gates. Some claimed they were being extorted by Mexican immigration officials. The new incident took place Thursday at the Gateway International Bridge when authorities received information about a group of Cuban migrants who could attempt to cross the border by force. The threat led to the deployment of CBP officers and crowd control measures. After a temporary shutdown,

Former Vice President Creepy Joe Biden has collapsed to third place in Iowa and nationally, according to two polls. Just a few days prior to last week’s debate, a national Change Research poll showed Biden leading the pack among his fellow 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls with 24 percent support. Socialist Sanders and Cherokee Warren were not far behind with 22 percent. But in a poll of 1,185 Democrat primary voters taken post-debate — between June 28 and July 1 — this same pollster now shows Biden has collapsed to third place nationally, with just 18 percent support.

President Trump struck a patriotic, nonpartisan and unifying note during his address at Fourth of July celebrations in Washington, D.C., as the massive crowd of attendees avoided clashes despite provocations from protesters. The event defied the critics who said the celebration on Thursday would be a partisan political spectacle that would not even attract a significant crowd. (Snip) Yet a massive crowd gathered on the Lincoln Memorial despite the rain, with Trump later tweeting an aerial photo showing an audience that filled both sides of the memorial’s Reflecting Pool and stretched to the Washington Monument.

National Public Radio (NPR) turned to Never Trump pundit Jonah Goldberg on Friday morning to explain the implications of the decision this week by Rep. Justin Amash to leave the Republican Party. Goldberg told Morning Edition‘s Steve Inskeep that Amash’s departure was “a sign of many of the symptoms he’s talking about,” including the increased partisanship of American politics — which, Goldberg argued, was ironically a result of the weakening of the traditional parties in the face of challenges by outsiders like Donald Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Amash, he said, reacting to the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which did not fit into the GOP’s partisan paradigm.

The San Francisco School Board last week authorized $600,000 in spending to destroy a mural depicting George Washington at a high school named for him. “It’s rude and disrespectful to people’s cultures,” a junior at the school told the San Francisco Chronicle. The school board president agrees. “I think the images are really harmful,” Stevon Cook explains. “But I do understand the sensitivity about it being art. It’s a difficult position to be in.” The board’s vice president, Mark Sanchez, maintains, “Painting it over represents not only a symbolic fresh start, but a real fresh start.” The censorship follows the removal of an “Early Days” statue,

It was excellent. Even CNN, in a report to which Jim Acosta contributed, couldn’t find fault with anything Trump said, although it took the obligatory shots at the event itself. CNN acknowledged that Trump’s speech was not political, but rather “a message of national pride.” Unfortunately, the matter of national pride has become political. But there was nothing in the speech that anyone would have found objectionable before left-liberals rejected the notion of pride in America. There was nothing in the speech that any patriotic American rationally can find objectionable today. You have to dislike America to dislike what Trump said to the crowd on the Mall.
