Independence Day 2016: Happy Fourth of July Weekend!!!

Fireworks in San Diego John Adams wrote to his wife on July 4, 1776:

It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of the country to the other, from this time forward forever more.

  1. Hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend, no matter what you do to celebrate, even if only to kick back and watch TV marathons. Have a good one!

  2. http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2016/07/01/we_re_being_played_by_the_clintons

    Rush’s take, II. Now Rush believes it was all a set up that hinges on Lynch saying she’ll defer to the CAREER prosecutors (not the political appointees). That may exclude (or overrule) Comey, who is the alleged honest man. Career employees depend upon the administrations they serve. They rise through the ranks, regardless of administration, because they’re civil service employees. BUT whether or not they do rise depends upon their bosses. If Clinton is not indicted, then SHE may well be their next ultimate boss. IF she is indicted, Obama is still their boss for the next 7 months.

    Rush thinks this is all a ploy by Clinton AND Lynch. Lynch wins because SHE doesn’t make the call (like a black female Pontius Pilate), but she knows and can control what the decision WILL BE because she’s jumping over the political appointee Comey down to the career people that she can still control, as their boss.

    So her hands are washed clean, and she can pretend that it wasn’t her call and she’s not the person who let an obviously guilty person skate. Bill wins, of course, by ending up, perhaps, “first gentleman”. But more important, the Clintons keep all the massive amounts of money and the power and the influence they’ve gathered since they began in Arkansas. It’s all corrupt. Just more Kabuki Theater.

  3. This is so infuriating that I apologize for disrupting your holiday, but it must be shared:

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/07/new-york-school-isolates-6-year-old-white-kids-rest-class-tells-theyre-racist-privileged/

    An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers.

    Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it.

    They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color” in other rooms where they’re taught to feel proud about their race and are rewarded with treats and other privileges. [IF they get one iota of public money, they should be sued to the limit. They should be sued anyway, because this is such a violation of those children’s civil rights (as they sued the clerk who wouldn’t give gays marriage licenses.) But, of course, the poor abused white children probably are the children of liberals who suffer themselves from white guilt and so don’t care that their children are discriminated against and suffer emotional stress DELIBERATELY INFLICTED on them as RETRIBUTION solely on account of their skin color. THIS is something all members of Congress, if not Obama, should decry. But don’t hold your breath. This is what Lynch should be doing–instead of running interference for Billary.]

    Ever since Ferguson, the school has been increasing anti-white propaganda in its curriculum,” said a parent who requested anonymity because he has children currently enrolled in the school. [So afraid that he requests anonymity. Even the libs KNOW that the country, as run by progressives, is increasingly FASCIST. This is how genocide happens.]

    Bank Street has created a “dedicated space” in the school for “kids of color,” where they’re “embraced” by minority instructors and encouraged to “voice their feelings” and “share experiences about being a kid of color,” according to school presentation slides obtained by The Post.”

    So ensconced RACISM in the curriculum. Anti-white separatism. WHERE now is their BS that diversity in the classroom is why affirmative action should continue?

    BANK STREET SCHOOL. Now where have we heard that name before? I know! BILL AYERS AND BERNARDINE DOHRN. Where Bill matriculated and, iirc, Bernie worked. The elementary school is a “demonstration” school where the commies who graduate from its college EXPERIMENT ON YOUNG MINDS to ensure that they can warp them in the right direction. https://www.bankstreet.edu/school-children/about-sfc/our-history/

    You see, it’s all good because they don’t CALL THEM the “of color” or the “white” groups. Nope. SEE?

  4. “…. Some [white] kids come home in tears, saying, “I’m a bad person.”

    They say white kids are being brainwashed into thinking any success they achieve is unearned. Indeed, a young white girl is seen confessing on a Bank Street video: “I feel guilty for having a privilege I don’t deserve.””

    IT’S NOTHING LESS THAN CHILD ABUSE. Deliberate child abuse. These teachers should be investigated and charged with a crime. Also the administrators who allow it to happen. How are bishops responsible for a parish priest who molests a child in a Catholic school, and yet these people, teachers on up, are NOT responsible for this deliberately planned CHILD ABUSE?

    We have LAWS against emotional abuse of the elderly, so surely there are similar laws that can be applied to THIS abuse under the color (no pun intended) of the power given to teachers! (It occurs to me that the children who are made to cry should be invited to visit Barry in the WH, like the clock boy.)

    I’m absolutely certain that there are hateful, spiteful people (Mooch comes to mind) who see NOTHING WRONG with doing this to innocent children because they believe it’s only fair because in their minds at some point children who look like them similarly suffered. AS IF THAT’S AN EXCUSE.

    As I said, they’re hateful people with a chip on their shoulders. I’ve SEEN SUCH PEOPLE when they get into power. I’ve had experience having to deal with RACISTS such as this. They need to be purged. Again, this poisonous crap is how genocide happens. And they have the gall to call conservatives Nazis and compare TRUMP to Hitler.

  5. Happy Birthday America!! 😀

    • It was stunning to begin with but the more so when you figure how this guy is the last guy to be grabbing onto “black oppression”. He’s a living example of black PRIVILEGE in Hollywood, if I ever saw one.

    • “And let’s get a couple of things straight – just a little side note. The burden of the brutalized is not to comfort the bystander. That’s not our job, all right?”

      WILLIAMS said that. I thought, does he really include himself among the “brutalized?” Yes, he does! Believe it or not. What a freaking hypocrite! It’s right up there with Barry’s lie about his mom being on food stamps! Privileged little half-white brat and he calls himself “brutalized” by whites? When he’s half-white and then he tells everybody who disagrees with him to “sit down?” Justin lived a far less privileged life than that little SNOT. He calls BLM “OUR” resistance and “OUR” oppression. How is HE among the “OUR” when his WHITE mom is a freaking professional artiste and both parents were educators who could afford to send HIM to a privileged elitist boarding school on the East Coast and then he got his two degrees from Temple U.? (btw, if he has blue eyes then his dad also HAS TO BE part white.) How freaking deprived and brutalized he was and how much he needs to belong to the “resistance!?” It’s stunning for its hypocrisy. Talk about “bystander”.

      He’s a bystander and obviously doesn’t like it. Needs to ghettoize himself for the separatist, racist BET crowd so THEY DON’T TREAT HIM LIKE BLACKS ARE NOW OPENLY IN A HOSTILE FASHION TREATING ALL WHITES. He’s trying too hard, isn’t he?

      What’s sad is this is the education of Justin. I know that part of TN and the people, black and white, DO get along in a common culture, for the most part. Justin’s life had far more in common (at least before he was discovered) with the blacks that Williams WANTS TO BE PART OF than with the likes of rich, Chicago-born, prep-boarding-school and college educated Williams.

      It’s the height of GALL for him or other “half-blacks” to lecture Justin, who, as you noticed, responded with love. Haters gonna hate, Justin. Sorry reality has to smack you in the face and people you THOUGHT were your friends are NOT.

    • He’s half white so half equal? Does he enjoy half white privileges? His speech was “moving” only in the sense that it was infuriating for many who had to listen to his fantasy and his racism. Self-hater, obviously. Trying to win brownie points and make up for his half white guilt. A child playing alone in a park? He left out the part where he was playing alone with a GUN in the park and pointing a GUN at others in the park, who didn’t know whether or not the GUN was real, seeing as how he deliberately made the pellet gun LOOK LIKE a real GUN. That’s how liberals roll. THEY LIE. They exaggerate to further their own RACISM. Poor Justin. He feels “misunderstood.” Justin, haters gonna hate. You cannot do ANYTHING to make up with them for your white skin. Something tells me, and I know nothing about this Williams guy, even so something tells me that his upbringing was more privileged than Justin’s. I’ll report back after some research. Did you see this?

      • Here ya go. You be the judge: From Wikipedia

        “Williams was born in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Johanna Chase, a professional potter, and Reginald Williams.[3] Williams has stated that his mother is Swedish, while his father is African American and some Seminole descent from Georgia. (I cry BS on that part! UNCONFIRMED AT THE CELEBRITY ETHINICITY SITE. His say so.) He has two younger brothers who specialize in visual arts. Williams graduated from Moses Brown School in Providence, Rhode Island (an independent, Quaker, college prep HIGH school, so he went away for high school, and it sounds like SIDWELL Friends), in 1998. After high school, his parents each began teaching in the public school system, while his mother maintained her work in pottery.

        Williams graduated from Temple University (so he went to college) with a double major in African American Studies and Film and Media Arts. Following in the footsteps of his parents, he taught high school in the Philadelphia public school system for six years, where he used his degree earned at Temple to teach American Studies, African Studies, and English.”

        Mother professional artiste. Both parents teachers. Went to fancy prep boarding high school in the liberal northeast. Went to college.

        “Timberlake was born in Memphis, Tennessee, to Lynn (Bomar) Harless and Charles Randall Timberlake, a Baptist church choir director. Timberlake grew up in Shelby Forest, a small community between Memphis and Millington. He has two half-brothers, Jonathan (born September 12, 1993) and Stephen (born August 14, 1998), from Charles’ second marriage to Lisa Perry. His half-sister Laura Katherine died shortly after birth on May 12, 1997, and is mentioned in his acknowledgments in the album NSYNC as “My Angel in Heaven”. … At the age of 11, Timberlake appeared on the television show Star Search, performing country music songs as “Justin Randall”. In 1993 and 1994, he was a cast member in The Mickey Mouse Club, where his castmates included future girlfriend and pop star Britney Spears, future tourmate Christina Aguilera, future bandmate JC Chasez, and future movie actors Ryan Gosling and Keri Russell. Timberlake then recruited Chasez to be in an all-male singing group, organized by boy band manager Lou Pearlman, that eventually became NSYNC.”

        Ok. Did Justin’s mom work? Doesn’t sound like it, so stay at home mom. Broken home. Dad a church choir director. Shelby Forest. I’ve been through there. It’s a lower to middle class, very southern area of TN. Working class. No mention that Justin even went to high school, much less college. What does a choir director make, verses two educators, one of whom is a professional potter/artiste?

        So how did I know? Just by looking at that guy Williams. He has “elitist” written all over his pretty face. Not hard to guess. He’s like Barry, trying hard to earn his street cred and glom onto oppression that was NEVER part of his history. He got a leg up in the entertainment industry, too. Affirmative action for the good looking privileged half-white guy. Such suffering. You’ll never know.

        • Stacey Dash Calls …..Jesse Williams

          A “Hollywood Plantation Slave” ….4 SURE!!! chewing GUM on
          STAGE …2 COOL 4 … “HIS BODY” …so HE thinks !!!! ha punk!

  8. ?? COOL ??? NO MORE HILLARY …. ???? ^^^^
    CHEW ON ~ CHEW ON …. Fist -up ??? Foxy & more ..ha
    Real MAGIC happens when YOU MOVE IT FORWARD!!!
    your stepping on my GOWN…. Please get the F OFF!!!!

    • Wow. Another for the dead pool? http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/07/un-official-accidentally-crushes-throat-testifying-hillary-clinton/

      “Call it conspiracy theory, coincidence or just bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to bring down Hillary Clinton by testifying they wind up dead. In fact, there’s a long history of Clinton-related body counts, with scores of people dying under mysterious circumstances.

      Perhaps the most notable is Vince Foster. Foster was a partner at Clinton’s law firm and knew the inner workings of the Clinton Machine. Police ruled that death a suicide, though it is often noted that Foster may have been suicided.

      Now, another official has found himself on the wrong end of the Clintons. That John Ashe was a former President of the United Nations General Assembly highlights the fact that no one is safe once in their sights.

      And as you might have guessed, there are major inconsistencies with Ashe’s death. It was not only conveniently timed because Ashe died just a few days before being set to testify against Clinton in a corruption case, but official reports indicated he died of a heart attack.

      The problem, however, is that police on the scene reported Ashe died when his throat was crushed during a work-out accident. …”

      So either he had a heart attack (like Breitbart?) or he “accidentally” crushed his own throat! Think I’ve seen that on TV mob movies or crime dramas. You know, somebody “accidentally” neglects to have a spotter so drops the barbell on his throat, with a little help, though.

      • Debbie Fontana · Lindenhurst, New York ….^^^ O’ ….HILL..!
        49 bodies. I do not believe that even in The Godfather did they rack up 49 bodies. Yet here we have the Clintons, with suicides???, accidents??? & allot of heart attacks (in people without heart problems) lining up behind them in little neat dead rows. Anyone else think that the Clintons are just what? Very Very lucky. Wake up America, you really must be as stupid as our government, led by the Clintons, think you are.

        • This is a good article: https://whatiamscreaming.wordpress.com/2016/07/04/you-owe-them-nothing-not-respect-not-loyalty-not-obedience/

          “There is one law for them, and another for us. Sanctuary cities? Obama’s immigration orders? If you conservatives can play by the rules and pass your laws, then we liberals will just not enforce them. You don’t get the benefit of the laws you like. We get the benefit of the ones we do, though. Not you. Too bad, rubes.

          So if you are still obeying the law when you don’t absolutely have to, when there isn’t some government enforcer with a gun lurking right there to make you, aren’t you kind of a sucker? …

          There used to be a social contract requiring that our government treat us all equally within the scope of the Constitution and defend us, and in return we would recognize the legitimacy of its laws and defend it when in need. But that contract has been breached. We are not all equal before the law. Our constitutional rights are not being upheld. We are not being defended – hell, we normals get blamed every time some Seventh Century savage goes on a kill spree. Yet we’re still supposed to keep going along as if everything is cool, obeying the law, subsidizing the elite with our taxes, taking their abuse. We’ve been evicted by the landlord but he still wants us to pay him rent.

          Now it seems we actually have a new social contract – do what we say and don’t resist, and in return we’ll abuse you, lie about you, take your money, and look down upon you in contempt. What a bargain!

          I say “No.””

    • http://www.ebony.com/entertainment-culture/jesse-williams-alice-walker#axzz4D5feDYut ….. write …on…ha

      Just when DO “THEY …. SPREAD the LOVE” LOVE LOVE?
      so says Lynch … WTF… must the white folks DARKEN our FACES?

  9. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/07/young-mans-leg-blown-off-nyc-central-park-explosion/

    Booby trap bombs or land mines (?) or IEDs in Central Park. One young man had leg blown off when he stepped on it. It was near the funeral for Elie Wiesel.

    Well, we’ll probably need a state of emergency and martial law before long. Need to postpone that election and give Barry “four more years,” huh?

  10. From the Benghazi Report, “there was no Benghazi” !!!! Happy Independence Day, America and all here !!!! http://www.breitbart.com/jerusalem/2016/07/03/obama-administration-misled-libyan-government-hide-u-s-mission-benghazi/

    • Yep. Same old, same old BUT the lamestream will NOT report and if it does get out, they’ll just ho hum it. It’s over. Let’s move on. What difference, at this point, does it make?

    • “Listing personnel in Benghazi as a separate office was rejected, however, as “[t]he reference to the establishment of an office in Benghazi may raise congressional notification issues ….”Earlier in the year, [Clinton deputy Patrick F.] Kennedy, determined congressional notification was not needed because “the Hill knows we are there.”

      Ultimately, it was decided to submit “one dip[lomatic] list for Tripoli, but noting on it that certain staff members will be performing their duties on a TDY (temporary duty travel) basis in Benghazi.”

      Thus, without formally notifying the new Libyan government of the Benghazi Mission, the personnel in Benghazi received diplomatic immunity only because the State Department told the Libyan government the personnel in Benghazi were actually assigned to Tripoli.”

      Great catch, James. Note: Lynch and Bill Clinton didn’t talk in secret about the emails. They did talk “primarily” about Janet Reno, grandchildren, and golf. However, that leaves room for them to talk about this END RUN AROUND CONGRESS, which they knew was coming out. If they violated that treaty, is it something that perhaps might require an independent counsel? Is that why Janet Reno might have been part of this conversation, in that she was the last to appoint an independent counsel to investigate the other Clinton?

    • The “experiment” that was conducted in Central Park was apparently a success. Reminds me of that great researcher: Clock Boy. If and when they ever catch the chemistry experimenter who blew off that innocent young man’s foot with a homemade IED, will he or she be invited to the WH for a round of congratulations for being such a great “scientific experimenter?” I suppose it all depends upon who the experimenter turns out to be, but two things to take from this: First, because they’re very much obfuscating on this story and downplaying, we can surmise that they KNOW or SUSPECT the identity of the “experimenter” and it’s another one of those “lone wolves”, and second, seeing as how the experiment in homemade land mines worked as planned, we can expect to see more of same from what is likely a self-radicalized domestic terrorist (unless he’s muslim, in which case he was probably more on the order of clock boy–someone wise beyond his years who just wanted to demonstrate his scientific acumen but got carried away and something went wrong. Mistakes were made. Nevermind. Move on.)

    • Of course, the FBI IS giving her a pass. You heard that, right? So much for Comey being uncorruptible and independent. It’s outrageous. The woman committed multiple crimes and yet, for her, the new standard is that she didn’t mean any harm. So, I wonder how many are now on death row who “didn’t mean any harm,” but nevertheless did a lot of harm? Trump was right: The fix is in. The meeting in Arizona was just to thumb their noses at us all.

  11. One can’t fully appreciate July 4, 1776 without appreciating this:
    “In Congress, March 16, 1776”
