The Biden administration is urging state and local officials across America to hold Independence Day celebrations this year — but is standing firm in preventing a fireworks display from being held at Mount Rushmore.South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem tweeted out a letter Tuesday from the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs which read in part: “Thanks to the Biden administration’s whole of government pandemic response, the United States has made incredible progress in vaccinating Americans and getting our country back on track …“On July 4, because of our strong response, America will mark independence from the virus by celebrating with events

They should just have the fireworks and let the chips fall where they may. What’s one of the democrats' credos, "better to ask forgiveness than permission."? Or words to that effect.

Don't get your hopes up. Gutless jellyfish Kristi Gnome will do NOTHING. She'll weep and moan - - then head for the deepest weeds - - to hide until July 5th.

I agree: Do the fireworks anyhow. Let the National Guard assist with the program. As long as the penalty is no worse than Antifa or BLM burning and looting cities (/s), so what?

Show us, Kristi, that you are not a RINO. Tell Washington to "shove it" and invite the public to Mt. Rushmore. Use state police to keeps the roads open. If you act like a meek and mild RINO, your political career ends on July 5, 2021.

The Crazy Horse monument is only 17 miles from Mt. Rushmore. Hold the celebration there. Crazy Horse was more American than anybody in the Biden administration. He was most definitely not an Indian immigrant from the Indian subcontinent.

I'm thinking that if a few thousand folks just drove up there with their own personal fireworks, and stopped on the roads near Mr. Rushmore, or even pulled into the parking lots of the visitor's center, and popped out fireworks from their trunks and just fired them, the feds would have a cow, but not be able to do much.

I know a guy who knows a guy who used to be a vacation timeshare salesman. I say "salesman" with apologies to honest salespeople everywhere: he was a hustler. To give you a sense of his era, he drove a Lincoln Continental. The rules of employment required that he own a four-door vehicle and an umbrella and prohibited "excessive alcohol or drugs on the job."No doubt you're getting the picture already. Guys like him were slick. They could drive a prospect around the yet-unfinished "resort" with a binder full of drawings showing what it soon would become: the pool, the tennis courts, the game room.

Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said Friday on ABC’s “The View” that Democrats were “trying” to punish former President Donald Trump for alleged crimes with a commission to investigate the Capitol riot. Co-host Joy Behar said, “Congressman, we’re just beginning to find out how Trump may have tried to undermine our democracy as president. There are allegations that his Justice Department subpoenaed phone records of House Democrats investigating his potential ties with Russia. Then emails were released showing how he pressured the Justice Department to challenge the 2020 election results based on his voter fraud lies which one DOJ official called pure insanity.

Exclusive: The State Department's Office of Civil Rights cleared former Trump ambassador to the United Kingdom, Woody Johnson, from allegations of inappropriate comments regarding race, sex and religion, concluding they were "unsubstantiated." Johnson, the owner of the New York Jets, was accused of making inappropriate remarks in the workplace about race, religion and gender to staff at the U.S. Embassy London last year. The State Department's office of inspector general, last August, issued a report, saying that embassy staff claimed Johnson "sometimes made inappropriate or insensitive comments on topics generally considered Equal Employment Opportunity-sensitive, such as religion, sex, or color."

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted his colleague’s voting rights compromise proposal Thursday, vowing that the GOP would oppose it.West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin’s proposed framework includes both Democratic and Republican priorities, including outlawing partisan gerrymandering, adopting voter ID, expanding early voting and limiting no-excuse absentee voting. But any voting bill needs 60 votes to overcome a Senate filibuster, meaning that 10 Republicans would have to vote in favor even if every Democrat supports it.“Senate Democrats seem to have reached a so-called ‘compromise’ election takeover among themselves,” McConnell said during weekly his Senate Republican leadership press conference.

Tap through TikTok and you'll fall down a slang-filled, dance-crazed rabbit hole a la "Alice in Wonderland." A piece of advice: Don't repeat everything you hear on your sojourn down. Especially if you are white. White people – on social media and in real life – regularly appropriate African-American Vernacular English (AAVE) like "slay" and "sis" without thinking, and some of these phrases come directly from the Black LGBTQ community. Experts say this perpetuates racism, erases Black contributions and fuels cultural misunderstandings. Simply put: It's Black linguistic appropriation.

The election of 2020 is going to lay bare the dereliction of the Supreme Court for all to see. The COVD-19 pandemic gave numerous state election officials an excuse to implement far-reaching changes to our election processes. Those changes obviously made our systems vulnerable to fraud. States implemented massive mail-in balloting at the same time they relaxed ballot security and voter identification. They even extended the voting periods -- to give the criminals more time to commit their fraud. All these changes were unconstitutional. (snip) The Supreme Court declined to get involved.

If Catholic politicians who support abortion rights were anxious about being restricted from receiving Holy Communion, they can breathe easier. Such a prohibition is now off the table at Thursday’s U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “We are no longer proposing a national policy” regarding who may present themselves for Communion, Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Indiana’s Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese told delegates to a virtual USCCB spring meeting. Bishop Rhoades, who chairs the group’s doctrinal committee, conceded the notion “was in the original proposal” for the document, he added, “We never meant it as it’s been interpreted in many media sources.”
