Flag Day and Flag Week, 2020

Today is Flag Day.  Are you flying your flag?

In 1885, Bernard J. Cigrand, a 19-year old Waubeka, Wisconsin teacher, proposed the idea of Flag Day “to inspire not only his students but also all Americans in the real meaning and majesty of our flag.” 

Rick Moran wrote at American Thinker:

Today, June 14 is flag day. It is a day set aside to honor our national standard and what it represents. The many millions who have fought under the stars and stripes need not be reminded of why it’s important to honor the flag. And for the rest of us, there is that longing that the flag fulfills: it allows us to belong to something greater than ourselves.

We the People know that our flag represents freedom.  Today, when our freedom, our history, and especially our shared traditions are under attack,  it is more important than ever to honor that which binds us together, One Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

President Trump has declared that this week is set aside to honor our flag, the flag of the People and the Republic of the United States of America. The President wrote,

On Flag Day and throughout National Flag Week, we pay tribute to the American flag, the most recognizable symbol of the principles for which our Republic stands.  For more than 200 years, the Stars and Stripes has represented liberty, justice, and the rule of law.  …

The American flag represents the unity of our country and its people.  No matter what may divide us, Old Glory should be revered and cherished, as a symbol of all that makes America the greatest country in the world.  As we honor our beautiful flag on this day and throughout this week, let us vow never to forget the tremendous sacrifices made by patriots from generation to generation to ensure that the red, white, and blue continues to fly high and free.  Today, and every day, I am proud to join my fellow Americans in standing tall and saluting our great American flag. …

 I encourage the people of the United States to observe with pride and all due ceremony those days from Flag Day through Independence Day, set aside by the Congress (89 Stat. 211), as a time to honor America, to celebrate our heritage in public gatherings and activities, and to publicly recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twelfth day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.

DONALD J. TRUMP
May God bless our President and may God watch over our Republic in our time of need.

  1. And Happy Birthday to Best the President Donald J. Trump!🥳

    • Thanks for reminding us! I was just going to come here and say

      HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. PRESIDENT!!

      Quite fitting that he was born on Flag Day.

  2. Unbelievable! The soccer player got fired even though he apologized, apologized for his wife, “denounced” her, and groveled!

    Tucker was criticizing Bottoms fully 5 days ago, pointing out how she set up a “recovery fund” for the businesses DESTROYED by “peaceful protesters!”

    • I didn’t even know he has a niece. There’s a trashy BS expose out there that was talked about in the WaPo (where else) and which claims WITHOUT EVIDENCE that Melania wouldn’t agree to move into the WH and become First Lady until their prenup was renegotiated.

      They are ALL such liars. I read today in the paper (and so it MUST be true) that POTUS didn’t “know” that Juneteenth was a black “holiday” when he scheduled his rally. This was allegedly based upon “supporters” who claimed to know. However, Trump himself has already said he KNEW it was Juneteenth and thought it would be fitting to celebrate it by the rally, in which he’d point out all he’s done for black Americans. So the WaPo LIED or their anonymous sources lied or don’t even exist in the first place.

      How the hell does a brother “play a part” in the death FROM ALCOHOLISM of another person, especially a brother that he no doubt didn’t live with or even see very much at the time? Another deranged liberal, no doubt. Another greedy relative (Billy Carter, e.g.) ready and willing to cash in on being related to a president. How does a niece know “harrowing” and “salacious” details about an uncle? If she is 55, she was born in 1965, when Trump was 19 or 20. By the time she’d be old enough to be privy to “salacious” information, he’d be in his 30s and already a media celeb so what could she possibly know or remember we didn’t already know, even if she saw The Donald as a child? So she was 16 when her father died. How could Donald Trump play any role in her father’s death? It sounds like sour grapes coming from the daughter of the first-born son. So her grandfather bolstered Donald’s businesses? Maybe he was INVESTING in a good thing. The investments would have come after her father died, so maybe she resented the grandfather not saving the money for her expected inheritance. Huh? Ya think? Methinks the “bad blood”, as always, comes from fighting over inheritances. Bad blood since the grandfather died, so what else could it be?

    • So interesting when you read about The Donald at Wikipedia. Donald’s father’s business was actually Donald’s GRANDMOTHER’S business. Elizabeth Trump. Company founded by Trump’s grandmother after Trump’s grandfather died. Trump’s dad started working with her when he was only 15. The Donald has three older siblings and one younger brother. The Donald, NOT his elder siblings, took over the father’s company in 1971. Ten years later, this niece’s father died of alcoholism. (Which probably explains why Donald doesn’t touch alcohol.) So riddle me this: IF the father made his money from the grandmother’s business, and if he turned the business over to his son Donald, then how could it be that the father had to “save” the company? Any money HE HAD came from the company, right? He likely still owned stock in it but Donald was president of it. So it was still likely as much his company as Donald’s. T’would be interesting to learn how much this niece inherited from either her father or grandfather.

  3. Over 800,000 people have signed up to attend President Trumps rally in OK

    There is room for 20,000!!!

    Sign up, this is a way we can push back, show your support for President Trump!

    • It’s true. Big Pharma WANTS to make billions off vaccine or their anti-viral drugs and recoup their “research” costs that all go down the drain if a cheap alternative exists to ameliorate COVID19.

  4. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/wayne-root-obama-president-kkk-terrorists-took-control-american-city/

    I had the same thought. WHAT IF the KKK was taking over a city, no matter who was POTUS? Would they tolerate it as peaceful dissent? Or would they EXPECT the military to go in and clear them out?

    “The Democrat Mayor of Seattle calls the communist anarchist terrorists “patriotic.” I kid you not.

    The leading councilperson in Seattle- also a Democrat- gave the radical terrorists the keys to city hall. Now she’s demanding the police surrender to the terrorists, while introducing legislation to permanently hand six city blocks to domestic terrorists. The lunatics are running the asylum. …”

    I can’t imagine any DemoncRAT saying that about the KKK or WHITE supremacists (versus the black ones).

  5. This is EQUAL TREATMENT UNDER THE LAW AND RACIAL JUSTICE? It’s like something HITLER would do. Discriminating against Jewish children while allowing LGBTQ+ and BLM “peaceful protests” cheek to jowl, massive crowds. But JEWISH children cannot be allowed to play. Hitler welds the doors of the playground together to keep them out. This is cruelty and it’s directed discrimination and it’s evil. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/bill-de-blasio-responds-massive-black-trans-lives-matter-protest-brooklyn-welding-gates-shut-biggest-park-jewish-community-video/

    Why did WILHELM DeBlasio bother to change his name? Adolf would have approved of his name as well as his actions.

    How is it that the Jewish people do NOT file suit and take it all the way to the SCOTUS?

    btw, did you see the DISGUSTING news that (just in time for Pride month) the SCOTUS voted 6 to 3 that it’s illegal to discriminate against gays and transgenders in hiring or firing?

    This civil rights law that was passed to ensure EQUAL TREATMENT UNDER THE LAW FOR FEMALE HUMAN BEINGS is being usurped and corrupted, not only by the progressive left but also by the SCOTUS itself. These are so-called conservative justices. GORSUCH wrote the opinion.

    Made the leap that if a gay is fired for being gay, then it must be because of his or her sex, given that if he or she was the opposite sex, he or she wouldn’t be fired because then he or she wouldn’t be homosexual. But being homosexual is NOT a sex. It’s a behavior.

    This will put FEMALE HUMAN BEINGS back in a position that’s worse than where they were in the first place. And two men, Gorsuch and Roberts, put us there. WHAT DO THEY HAVE IN THEIR “BLACK FILES” ON THESE TWO?

  6. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/planned-parenthood-endorses-joe-biden-says-literally-life-death-election/

    You cannot make this stuff up!

    ““This is literally a life and death election,” Alexis McGill Johnson, acting president of Planned Parenthood, told NPR ahead of the announcement. “We felt like we can’t endure another four years of Trump; we have to do everything we can to get him out of office.”… ”

    So Planned Parenthood CHOOSES DEATH in this “life and death” election.

    We choose LIFE; they choose DEATH. Biden, they argue, is the death-lover’s choice.

  9. wow

    • On cue: A new viral outbreak in China! LOCK EVERYTHING DOWN AGAIN (until after the “election”0”)! (Crazy! Instead of the video about the kid’s father, I saw a thing about COVID.)

      • As soon as I saw some China man talking about the outbreak i said “I don’t believe a word you are saying”
        I was right about that last false flag killing and you are right about this.
        I bet it is not genetically the same virus..

        Interestingly I saw a documentary list night about how the two biggest covert agencies staged a coup in Iran to get rid of a democratic government (that was planning to seize Iran’s oil assets for Iran) and install the Shah (while he lasted). I thought the parallels to what is happening in America are glaringly obvious, same techniques different country, that’s all.

        • I hope to heck it’s the same virus because if it’s not than it’s further proof this is biological warfare. It’s no coincidence, imho, that China was simultaneously researching this coronavirus AND creating a vaccine for it. Their purpose, at best, was to make tons of money. The alternative was to kill off everybody else’s population, while having a vaccine to save their own. There are many parallels with what’s happening today here and around the world. What, for example, does U.S. history of slavery and/or U.S. allegedly biased policing have to do with the UK? Ditto for the history of “racism” and “oppression” here in the U.S.? We see the blacks in the UK and the muslims, too, complaining about “racism” and rioting and screaming “black lives matter” the same as here. But the excuse we hear for this behavior in the U.S. is U.S. history. What’s the excuse over there? Many of the blacks in the UK, I believe, are recent immigrants (legal or not). HOW can there be a history of “white” racism and oppression? They ought to be GRATEFUL as hell that the UK took them in so they’re not still living in the “shithole countries” from which they fled.

          Today, we’re treated to John Kerry threatening the U.S. with revolution IF Trump should win again. His excuse? That nobody’s going to believe Trump really won fair and square so it will be their “duty” as told to them by the Founders (whom they in no way revere) to cast off the oppression of four more years of Trump.

          Then we’re treated to Susan Rice, allegedly a VP potential, advising Biden that he should choose a BLACK VP and that he and his new VP need to ensure that Trump AND HIS SUPPORTERS are consigned to the trash bin of history–thus paraphrasing that hero of hers–LEON TROTSKY!

    Give us a break. OPEN NYS!

    • Yep. We all need to get with the program, accept our dhimmi status, and acknowledge that our “betters” (progressives, black activists, LGBTQ activists, Democrats, people of “color”) will now be the ELITE, the RULERS, and we will be the “humble”, second-class slaves (in the sense that we’ll fund everything but have NO SAY in how our money is spent).

  11. true

    Good work but will this precious snowflake get even ONE day in prison much less 80 years? Like Ayers, she’ll probably be “guilty as hell but free as a bird.”

    In the same vein, more “peaceful protesters;” don’t you dare call them what they are: domestic (and even foreign) terrorists.

    ““We got to the overpass around eight-forty-five. A gentleman with a megaphone was telling everybody to move toward the Wendy’s. I’m seeing a lot of stuff about white people setting the Wendy’s on fire. Yo, let me be the first to say that shit was a community effort. The love and unity that went into burning that motherfucking Wendy’s down was incredible. I’m not gonna give white people credit. Black people were angry. We were organized. There was a bomb squad there within the revolution. They had fireworks—using them to signal that police were coming, where to meet. There was also anti-drone teams from other parts of the world: Venezuela, Seattle, Minneapolis. Boots on the ground, sharing the gospel about defunding the police. I saw lasers big enough to put on telescopes pointed up at the drones, disrupting their feeds.

    The crowd was working the Wendy’s for hours before we arrived. Maybe three hundred people. There wasn’t much conversation about larger revolutionary principles. It was just people expressing their anger at this object, which gave us an outlet. There were some people there to fuck shit up, but, generally speaking, the people were there in support of the movement. I was saving bricks for motherfuckers throwing for Rayshard, not because you just want to throw a brick. What we’re doing is based in very real anti-government scholarship and politics. The Black Lives Matter agenda. The revolution agenda. The ending of overpolicing and police brutality and corporate violence. Burn it down. …”

    ILLUMINATING, isn’t it? WHERE THE HELL IS THE FBI? Where is the media reporting on this domestic terrorism?

  15. This is the United States, not Red China, not MAO’S dictatorship, not Winston Smith’s world, but you’d never know it!

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/far-left-bartender-spies-customer-outs-facebook-criticizing-black-lives-matter-owner-sides-bartender/

    A leftist bartender eavesdrops on customers and doesn’t like what they say about BLM, so he doxxes the customer online instead of “calling them out” or “refusing to serve them,” as if part of his job is to monitor the PRIVATE FREE SPEECH OF CUSTOMERS. Subsequently, the owner (correctly) fires the guy, but then caves to MOB RULE and rehires him and then BANS the customer from coming there again. So we will have SEGREGATION in this country, apparently. Not only racial but also by ideology. You WILL SUBMIT or you will not be welcome in their leftist establishments. I wonder what the people who issue liquor licenses and business licenses will have to say, if anything, about this blatant violation of someone’s rights?

  16. A Tale of Two Noozes
    Fox seems to have gone full Left:

    Supreme Court rejects President Trump’s efforts to rollback DACA
    Shannon Bream reports the Supreme Court upholds the DACA program, rejecting the Trump administration bid to end legal protections for Dreamers

    Same Story Epoch Times

    The Supreme Court ruled that President Donald Trump cannot rescind former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy because the Department of Homeland Security did not follow the proper procedure.

    The court argued that the president does have the authority to rescind it and could do so if the proper procedure were followed.

    NIGHT AND DAY

    • Judge Roberts, for sure. He’s either being blackmailed as many suggest OR he’s too concerned with political correctness and the REPUTATION OF THE SCOTUS, all because in his opinion Trump’s administration didn’t worry enough about what becomes of the DACA recipients if the ADMITTEDLY ILLEGAL PROGRAM is ended. THIS is exactly what Obama counted upon when he KNOWINGLY created the program and when the RINOs knowingly allowed it to begin. They KNEW it was illegal and they should have opposed it immediately, but they didn’t. Now Roberts is worried about PUBLIC OPINION of the SCOTUS if 800,000+ Dreamers are left in limbo and are at risk of deportation. Trump only and ever wanted to goad PELOSI et al into NEGOTIATING a reasonable outcome for them. Such as, they get to stay but have a long road to citizenship, if ever, and certainly need to go to the back of the line and wait years for a chance at citizenship, just like everybody else does who follows the law. But Pelosi preferred to keep their status as a CAMPAIGN ISSUE, to rally their base, and to not give an inch to the People’s representatives who represent the WILL of the People who do NOT WANT ILLEGAL ALIENS BUMPED TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE AND REWARDED FOR BREAKING THE LAW.

      I read today about some of the poor Dreamers, lovely little puff pieces explaining who they are. One case in point was a woman from Mexico who has a FULL SCHOLARSHIP to a college to study social work and yet the state DOES NOT ALLOW ILLEGAL ALIENS TO BE LICENSED TO PRACTICE SOCIAL WORK! And so the college gave a scholarship that ought to have gone to a U.S. citizen to an illegal alien who won’t even be able to use her education once she graduates! That’s how crazy this is.

      ANOTHER Dreamer is studying–get this–LAW. Consider the irony. He’s studying LAW. U.S. law. Yes, and he expects to practice law HERE in the country he resides in illegally. It probably goes without saying that he doubtless gets scholarships and money from the college and he’s not even a LEGAL person here so he’s stealing a position from a U.S. citizen. Same for all the JOBS these 800,000+ have. Stolen from citizens. And yet We the People are supposed to be happy about this and believe we’re racists if we object.

    • What I would LOVE to see is President Trump initiating any number of similar programs along the lines of DACA that follow his own policy ideas and who cares if they’re illegal? iow, he should do exactly as Obama, create programs to do an end run around Congress and just ORDER what he wants. Then leave it all there for the next president to deal with. Do you think the SCOTUS will say the next president can’t undo Trump’s illegal actions? Of course not. They don’t even allow Trump to UNDO THINGS THEY KNOW AND ADMIT ARE ILLEGAL. They don’t allow him to do things that ARE within his Constitutional authority without a doubt. Liberals immediately run to the courts no matter what Trump does WITHIN HIS LEGAL AUTHORITY AS PRESIDENT. HOWEVER, the Republicans NEVER stood up to Obama, just as guys like the president of Chick-fil-A bowed down to accept his dhimmi status as a WHITE, remorseful second-hand citizen and shined some black guy’s shoes! And then he said it wasn’t important and he didn’t blame rioters that his restaurants were vandalized! (Is Chick-fil-A a franchise organization? If so, then I wonder what the store owners feel about their businesses being attacked.)

      The SCOTUS AND the Republicans are too worried about how they will look to the MOB and the MEDIA and what will be SAID about them. Or else, even worse, they fear the mob and riots and revolution and don’t have the guts to fight it with POWER AND MIGHT, as Trump said and anybody with a brain knows will have to happen.
