Independence Day!

Betsy Ross Independence Day

A very happy Independence Day, fellow Americans!

I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to watching tonight’s “Salute to America” and fireworks.  And I really hope I get a glimpse of those tanks!

As you may know, held the annual Summer Fundraiser a couple weeks ago.  And this year’s raffle winner will be receiving all five of my e-books.  No T-shirts anymore, I’m afraid.  Dianny Tees closed down in December (damn my Lupus!).

Let me say, I was humbled and awed by the overwhelming support during this year’s summer fundraiser.  You guys are so terrifically generous and thoughtful.  I can’t tell you how much your donations and notes of support mean to me.

Now, I was going to hold the raffle last weekend, but decided to wait and announce the raffle winner on Independence Day instead.

And this year’s raffle winner is Gerald N. – one of the readers who set up a recurring monthly donation via the Subscribe option.

Congratulations Gerald!

I’ll be emailing you the coupon codes so you can download your free copies of all five of my books.

Some of you have been asking if I plan to do a third volume of collected columns to go with Volumes One and Two: “RANT” and “RANT 2.0.” And I’ve been kicking around the idea for a few months now.  At this juncture, I’m still in the “Good grief, there’s too many of them!” phase of the planning.  I need to decide if I want to zero in on just one topic or feature columns on a variety of topics (as I did in the previous two volumes).

But when I do actually start the compilation, I’ll let you know it’s in the works. In fact, knowing me, I’ll not shut up about it being in the works.

Any old how.

In honor of Independence Day, and Betsy Ross, as you can see, I have changed the flag in’s header.  I’m of a mind to keep it this way permanently. I kinda like it!

Despite the Left’s demonizing of President Trump’s response to the riot in Charlottesville two years ago, the fact is, President Trump called it.

He knew that this attempt to erase our history would not stop with Confederate soldiers.  And he warned of that after the events in Charlottesville.  He warned that Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln – all of our history is at risk of being deemed “racist.”

And here we are.

Charlottesville itself will no longer celebrate Thomas Jefferson’s birthday.

The Betsy Ross flag – the first flag of our nation – has been deemed racist not just by the idiots at Nike, but by Presidential candidates.

I’m sure that will win over the Rust Belt States (Beto and Julian, you prats).

Naturally, the Governor of the People’s Republic of California also praised Nike for its hatred of America’s founding.

The Left never stops.

They always, always push too hard and too far.

The Left’s goal has always been to erase America’s history, traditions and culture in the same way they want to erase our borders.

As I said the other day, they are no longer satisfied with Fundamental Transformation. Now they want Fundamental Obliteration.

They even want to get rid of Independence Day itself.

Just take a look at the Google Doodle for today, July 4, 2019.

Golly, so nice of Google to toss Americans a bone in the fine print while they feature baseball on Independence Day.

If you have the chance, please read Raheem Kassam’s excellent column at Human Events, “Killing The Fourth of July.”

Let’s just say, this Brit gets it.

The left is fighting July 4th because it is one of the last vestiges – alongside the flag, the anthem, and the Constitution – that represents America’s roots and therefore its history.

When you despise America, it is inevitable that you would seek to erase its history.  Why do you think History is the least-taught subject in public schools? A nation unmoored from its history will crumble.

It is also inevitable that you would seek to undermine any holiday that celebrates this country you seek to destroy.

But the Left always pushes too hard and too far.

And their attempts to crap all over Independence Day, the flag, and our nation’s sovereignty are a bridge too far for most Americans.

So screw’em.

Let the Left kvetch and whine.

Let them clutch their pearls and scream helplessly at the sky.

It’s Independence Day.

We are proud of our nation — of our history and founding.

We are proud to stand for our flag and honor those brave men and women who serve this nation in our military.

And we are proud to call ourselves Americans.

    Happy 4th of July.
    Keep the Betsy Ross flag on your banner, it’s a great symbol and completes the look of your site.

      Yeah. I really like it. By the time I got putting it together, I was like, “Holy smokes! This is a thousand times cooler than the last flag!” So I think I’m going to keep it.

      Sure, it may be the 4th of July, but we’re not celebrating the date, we celebrate Independence Day. Too many people confuse the two, and that’s part of the left’s plan to obliterate our history. Socialist Google did NOT say “Happy Independence Day”, and I’d wager if any of the media says it, it was by mistake – they forgot to stick to the narrative.

      Anyway, Happy Independence Day!

    The Left’s attacks on Thomas Jefferson are just mind-boggling to me. Such a brilliant man who surely was a gift from God not just to our nation, but to the world. Back when I was in high school, President Kennedy hosted a dinner in April 1962 for a large group of Nobel Prize winners. In his welcoming address, he said, “I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

    We fought the inter-country Revolutionary War to win our independence from the invading elitist Kingdom-centric British. Perhaps now we need to become aware that the elitist government-centric leftist Deep State may be engaging in an intra-country Revolutionary War.

    Some might say that a political revolution against the offensiveness of the leftist Deep-State (the swamp, etc.) has already begun
