President Joe Biden will present the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, to 17 people, including actor Denzel Washington, soccer star Megan Rapinoe, gymnast Simone Biles and the late John McCain, the Arizona Republican with whom Biden served in the U.S. Senate. Biden will also recognize Sandra Lindsay, the New York City nurse who rolled up her sleeve on live television in December 2020 to receive the first COVID-19 vaccine dose that was pumped into an arm in the United States, the White House announced Friday.

Megan Rapinoe?! That means the Medal of Freedom has lost all meaning. She’s as unpatriotic as there is. Didn’t this person take a knee or something like that? Who chooses the recipients?

OH, good! We'll get to hear the fatuous, shrill daughter of the sniveling John McCain (whose military service is suspect at best) go on and on and on about Daddy. Listen for a swipe at President Trump coming from the fluffy daughter of JMcC.

Any honor, medal or award presented to ANY recipient by president J R Biden means NOTHING unless you LIKE to receive awards presented by a delusional and demented communist. So, SHOW OFF that award so everyone will know what a TOOL you are, comrade. The Hollywood contingent will show it off ANYWAY because THAT’s what NARCISSISTS DO.

Notice another event always surfacing to take as much attention away from the USA’s special day of patriotism the Fourth of July. This medal means less than nothing when Democrat Presidents give it out. I LOVE that the biggest left wing disaster of a Democrat president is the one giving it to McCain. I am sure we will be treated to emotional Meghan McCain videos and interviews - as many as she can manage to do. I will not be watching.

President Truman created the Medal of Freedom, to honor civilians who made big contributions to the war effort. John Kennedy converted into a way for him to rub shoulders with celebrities. Dementia Jo will cop some feels, sniff some hair, and wander around the stage. And if presidents want to honor angry lesbians, they should be given a Hilldo.

Denzel is the only one who deserves this award. The rest are/were nasty America hating liberals. Simone Biles should never have gone to the Olympics, as I suspect she knew she would not compete. She should have given the spot to somebody else who might have actually won something.

Kate Brown authorized the state police to round up the 12 Republicans who walked out of the Capitol in protest of the bill and bring them back to the Senate floor for a vote. If passed the measure will make Oregon the second state in the country after California to implement such a program.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) further strutted her woke posturing at the Reagan Presidential Library, where she said the world “is really not going that well” under male leadership. As part of the “Time for Choosing” speaker series, Liz Cheney briefly honored former President Ronald Reagan before segueing into a diatribe against former Donald Trump, calling him a “dangerous and irrational man.” Cheney also characterized Republican leadership as being loyal to the former president at the expense of the Constitution. Towards the tail-end of her speech, Cheney celebrated that which gives her the most hope for the future: “young women.”

Then-President Donald Trump angrily demanded to go to the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, and berated his protective detail when he didn't get his way, according to two Secret Service sources who say they heard about the incident from multiple agents, including the driver of the presidential SUV where it occurred. The sources tell CNN that stories circulated about the incident -- including details that are similar to how former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson described it to the House select committee investigating January 6 -- in the months immediately afterward the US Capitol attack and before she testified this week.

Cameras were not allowed in the courtroom, but footage of Griner entering the proceedings showed her sporting a white and black Jimi Hendrix t-shirt.

Not since the decade leading up to the Civil War has there been as much discussion about the possibility of the United States splitting into two or more countries as there has been in the past 10 years. The reality is that this nation has effectively split into two countries which are, for the moment, tenuously living side-by-side. Race or ethnicity has been the underlying foundation in the creation of every nation in the history of mankind except the United States, as its founding was based on the tenet that all men are created equal and are endowed with certain unalienable rights that government cannot abrogate.
