For 2019, President Trump has promised a YUGE Fourth of July show in Washington, DC:

Armoured vehicles have been arriving since the beginning of the week:

The Hill had more on the armoured vehicles:

U.S. military tanks arrived in Washington, D.C., via train on Tuesday ahead of their use in President Trump‘s July 4 “Salute to America” event on the National Mall.

NBC News captured photos and video of two Bradley and two Abrams tanks arriving in Southeast D.C. The news outlet also spotted support vehicles, including an M88 used to help recover armored equipment.

NBC’s report came after an Associated Press photographer spotted two M1A1 Abrams tanks and four military vehicles on a freight train late Monday.

Trump confirmed on Monday afternoon that there will be tanks stationed on the National Mall on the Fourth of July.

“We’re going to have some tanks stationed outside,” Trump said during a bill signing in the Oval Office. “You’ve got to be pretty careful with the tanks because the roads have a tendency not to like to carry heavy tanks. So we have to put them in certain areas.”

The Pentagon did not respond to a request for comment about how the tanks will be transported to the National Mall.

Trump will deliver remarks from the Lincoln Memorial as part of the Independence Day event, and he has played an active role in its planning. The event will also include flyovers by military aircraft.

The United States has much to celebrate this year.

Economically, things haven’t been this good since the mid-19th century!

Wow!

Here’s another Wow! President Trump is the first sitting American president to cross the demilitarised zone (DMZ) into North Korea, which he did on Sunday, June 30:

How sad that Westerners, including many Americans, do not care.

The Korean War never came to an official close. It’s been going on since Trump was a child. He wants to do something positive about that. North Korea is controlled by China, so this process has to be carefully managed and negotiated.

President Clinton visited North Korea during the Obama administration. Speaking of Obama, compare and contrast the photos:

Tucker Carlson from Fox News got exclusive coverage and describes what happened at that historic moment. This short five-and-a-half minute video is well worth watching. The segment appeared on Tucker’s show on Monday, July 1:

Meanwhile, in the United States, the gay conservative journalist Andy Ngo was recovering from a brain haemorrhage he received from an attack by Antifa in Portland. The following tweet is from his lawyer:

Andy saw it coming:

Regardless of the following tweet, Portland Police stood by on the day, allowing bloody attacks on Andy and others:

The US ambassador to Germany has rightly called for an investigation:

Andy was well enough to write a few days later:

The American flag also came under attack. Colin Kaepernick objected to a Nike shoe with the Betsy Ross colonial flag on the back, so the company withdrew it from sale:

Congressman and military veteran Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) is not wrong:

Trump supporter — and Obama voter — Charles Payne opened up the subject to his readers and listeners:

Sadly, I couldn’t agree more.

Nike will be losing big time with American consumers as well as the state of Arizona, where it had planned to open a factory.

First, here’s a consumer’s point of view:

Now here’s what the Republican governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, had to say:

He concluded with wise words about Betsy Ross:

And finally, it shouldn’t take a controversy over a shoe for our kids to know who Betsy Ross is. A founding mother. Her story should be taught in all American schools. In the meantime, it’s worth googling her. 9/9

Here is a short film about this American icon. Her flag, commissioned by none other than George Washington, inspired The Star-Spangled Banner, America’s national anthem:

In closing, contrary to what many left-wing and libertarian clergy say, the idea behind celebrating Independence Day also included giving thanks to God. Hence church services, which are much criticised by said clergy railing against ‘American exceptionalism’. Would that other Western nations actually held such services on national days for their own countries.

The Revd Robert Jeffress explains what President John Adams, America’s second president (and first vice president), had in mind:

We should all give thanks for our respective nations.

Most countries have been doing their best through the course of modern history to right the wrongs of their ancestors. They are also working together internationally to make the world a better place.

Rather than focusing on ‘exceptionalism’, we should thank God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for guidance through the ages — no matter where we live! Our leaders did not always listen to the Triune God, but, when they did, things turned out for the better.

I hope that all sensible Americans will be able to celebrate Independence Day in peace and with pleasure. It is a big day. Enjoy it, whilst remembering to say prayers of thanksgiving.

Please also pray for Andy Ngo’s swift and full recovery. The Founding Fathers wanted everyone to be able to speak freely in safety, hence the First Amendment.
