Happy Independence Day 2017 — Weekend Open Thread

On Tuesday we celebrate the founding of our nation. The Fourth of July commemorates

the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire.

Regarding Independence Day, Founding Father John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail, 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.


Let us never forget every Patriot who fought for our freedom.

Remember also our troops and veterans, without whom there would be nothing for us to celebrate on this national holiday.

Happy Fourth of July holiday weekend to all of our friends here at WTPOTUS.

May God bless you all and may God bless the United States of America.

  1. That explains why, predictably, this week, they will obsess over his mental health. All of their other frenzies fizzled. They have nowhere else to go.

    So far, this president, whom the media would like to paint as crazy or undermined, has accomplished the following:

    The U.S. stock market has grown a whopping 16 percent just since his election.
    Illegal immigration has dropped to a 17-year low.
    Unemployment has dropped to a 17-year low.
    NATO allies have boosted defense spending by more than $10 billion after President Trump pressured them to pay their fair share.
    Constitutionalist Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed and sworn in to the Supreme Court.
    President Trump restarted the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipeline construction projects.
    ISIS is on the run as Mosul is about to be retaken.
    President Trump has signed several executive orders lifting regulations on U.S. businesses.
    He pulled out of the Paris climate deal.
    He signed a VA reform bill to make it easier to fire bad VA employees and protect whistle blowers.
    And he’s done much more …

    If someone said you could accomplish all your goals but the journey might be a little dirty, would you do it? When was politics ever a pretty proposition?

    I wish he could do it without the tweets, too. But the bottom line is: If the president is crazy, he is crazy like a fox, and it’s winning for the American people.

    The president has angered the left again with another tweet, and it is one of his most popular tweets of all time.

  2. “ROPE – A – DOPE” ? …YEP EVERY “FAKE” ….”1′” of THEM!

    …our main MAN!!! STANDS TALL ^^^^^^

    • I hope Trump finds a good moment to place a very important call to Obama to warn him in no uncertain terms to BUG OFF and BUG OUT and STOP INTERFERING in foreign relations. He’s not president anymore. And THAT, I would guess, is part of why Trump is going around telling people over and over that he “won” and he’s president and “they’re” not. He’s not talking ONLY to the media. He is very subtle in his tweets and in what he says. He’s talking to lots of people, including Barry. I hope Barry catches Trump’s drift. The President (the REAL president) is not mimicking and repeating OBAMA’S words for nothing.

  3. I don’t use twitter, I don’t use Facebook,
    I used Linkedin for about 48 hours until I said
    “sod this for a game of soldiers”
    That’s a local saying where I work.
    If you’re on guard duty at night, why light a cigarette?
    For the President, why light these Tweets?

    • He’s really inscrutable on this one. Who knows the way his mind works? It seems to have served him very well so far, though. Billionaire and president. What does he do for a third act?

      p.s. I agree with you about social media. I abhor it and avoid it, if possible. Becoming harder and harder, though.

    • Gee, it almost makes you wonder if the news was mistaken and it was really the leader of NORTH Korea that Barry met with. WHAT, btw, was he doing once again shadowing our REAL President?

  4. Melania Trump has a staff of just five, compared to Michelle Obama’s 24, according to Andrzejewski’s analysis. Michelle Obama entered the White House with 22 staff members, whose salaries annually amounted to approximately $2 million, $1.4 million more than that of her predecessor, Laura Bush.

    There are 110 fewer in Employees in the White House under President Trump than there were under that Obama administration, Andrzejewski points out, saving nearly $5 million alone.

  5. HAPPY HAPPY 4 TH …2 ALL of US ….& them…

  6. “Apple” makes a new building.
    Libs go weak in the knees and express their adoration.

    One of the enduring tenants of left wing politics is the celebration,
    the defense of, the elevation of the working class man. Oops sorry,
    microagression, working class person.
    But! What all the tech companies are placing their bets on is the elimination of the working class person.
    How could you not notice this?
    With sufficient processing power, the tech industry believes it can make unnesesary the labors such as grape picking, warehouse management, food distribution, taxi driving, airplane flying etc.
    There is a common conspiracy theory that says we are about to see the elimination of 90% of humans.
    I don’t believe conspiracy theories, but there is a point,
    if elites think they can build a new subservient class of “robots” to take
    care of their needs, then why feed humans?
    Behind all of this is the saying “you can’t stop progress”
    which means that when inventions such as the internal combustion engine or the machine weavering looms came into existence, people rebelled but ultimately were swept away.
    That sweeping away gave rise to the word, you may have heard of it “Luddites” – these were folk who resisted the automated mechanical looms.
    But here is the danger of extrapolation.
    Extrapolation – that’s a math word. You have some data points which you know to be accurate. You can present your data in a graph, and draw a smooth curve connecting your data points, that is called interpolation.
    If you want to extend your graph to regions beyond which you have any data points, you could just try to draw the trend of your graph onwards and assume your newly created guess is accurate – and that is called extrapolation.
    Because extrapolation is based upon nothing more than the idea that was has been happening will continue to happen it has no certainty.
    Get it?
    The tech industry can predict that it has the UNSTOPPABLE power to eliminate most workers.
    Does it?
    We have no historical precendents upon which to base this extrapolation.
    It may well be that if we ask 90% of our people to just
    (I am going to quote from that movie Independence Day – wherein we ask the captured alien what they want us to do)
    die, the response might not be acceptable.
    This is the 4th of July and it is a good day to say that people have
    the recourse of revolution to end a fatal script that has been written for them.
    The original question:
    Why do liberals support this hyper contradiction?
    Answer (mine)
    Because they are crazy.
    They think they can survive the storm which they have created,
    They Can Not Survive separtely from everyone else.

  7. Shocking!!! 🙄

    • In a word: SAD!

    • I read an article today in which they talked about how there’s a run on printed versions of the Constitution! And all because now they believe Trump poses such a threat to our country. Wait, they didn’t say our country, they said “democracy.” So if the crazed progressives actually read and digest (understand) the Constitution, will they realize that this isn’t a DEMOCRACY but a Republic? Is there hope in this sudden interest in the Constitution? So ironic. There’s been a run on the Constitution for years, beginning with Barry, but the media doesn’t notice it until THEY do it and not us deplorables.


    Rev. Peterson, a wildly popular WND columnist, has written many exclusive WND commentary articles on the issue of alleged “racism” in America, including the following top-hitters:

    “Dear white people: Your days are numbered”
    “What if white America just said ‘no’?”
    “Blacks won’t rebuke Farrakhan terror threats”
    “Obama, Oprah, media to blame for black mobs”
    “Black fatherless homes, left creating cop killers”
    “Obama’s anti-Trump quest to crush America”
    “What’s eating Colin Kaepernick?”
    “White supremacy a myth – black privilege is real!”
    “Hillary and Elizabeth Warren hate blacks”
    “Racial hoaxes: Who’s really the victim?”
    “Let’s talk about black racism”
    “No white leader will dare stop Obama now”

  12. IT’S OUR BIRTHDAY …once again … 241st …man – I feel OLD right now!

    • If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say China would step in to “keep the peace” until they could “choose” their own next Dear Leader. Don’t you think? HA! Who would miss the little slime ball, other than the goose-steppers who’d be out of a job? Surely the PEOPLE of North Korea would like to come into the 21st century with the rest of us.

  13. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com …..many stories…R they TRUE??

  14. http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2017/07/04/breaking-hillary-is-being-sacrificed-to-maintain-the-secret/
    IF true:
    All signs point to the fact that Hillary is being sacrificed by the Deep State. An old 2013 pedophile ring coverup has resurfaced in which Hillary threatened NBC reporters with “serious consequences”. The story promptly disappeared, but now the reporters are talking. If there is a Deep State deal in place (eg we will give you Hillary and you leave Pedogate alone?).
    ——————————————- snip ——————————————-
    The only correct response can be NO DEAL.
    If you make the deal, you sanction pizzaphilia, or something,
    and then you carry the guilt too.
    Perhaps that is what they want.

    NO DEAL:
    Who’s afraid of Hillary?
    Not me.

  15. 4 …me this is NOT ….. what being alive is about !

    • I wonder what they have as an experimental treatment? If the problem is in the mtDNA, will gene therapy reverse the problems he has? Seems unlikely, but can he live a Helen-Keller-like existence?

  17. so then is this OK ///??///… WHAT IS OK ?? less than 1 week old
    Pfeiffer syndrome type 2 is a genetic disorder that causes skeletal and systematic abnormalities. The premature fusing of the bones in the skull, sometimes resulting in ‘cloverleaf skull,’ in which the eyes are outside the sockets. The fusion of bones in the hands and feet causing a webbed or paw like appearance. The absence of an anus, indicating life-threatening abnormalities in the colon and bowels. I learned all this later. But in that first moment I couldn’t understand what I was seeing.

  18. 28′ ..Y E A R S .. the Heiress spent in a C O M A ??? that’s LIVING large?

    • Apropos of nothing, really, except heirs and heiresses, this guy is running for governor of IL AS IF HE’S JUST A GOOD OLE BOY, COUNTRY BUMPKIN: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._B._Pritzker

      You ought to see the photos in his campaign ads. He looks like The Beav, if you know what I mean. Wears plaid shirts but with no tie or with a Ward Cleaver-like v-neck cardigan over it. Claims he’s for “the children.” The DemoncRATS in IL have already very nearly bankrupted that state by GIVING other people’s money away to the “deserving.” They finally passed a budget but only because financial groups threatened to downgrade IL to “junk” status. The budget, though, doesn’t balance or find a way to repay the billions in debt the state owes. It does, however, permanently raise their income tax by a whopping 33%. Anyway, Penny Pritzker’s brother and a friend of Barry’s. To replace the Republican Governor Rauner of IL.
