2928 months ago, 56 Founders signed a revolutionary declaration 13 British colonies were going independent from King George III and their colonizing Englanders. Do you love America? They did and they ALL lost their fortunes and lives for their John Hancock’s on the bottom of the parchment. And that YOU, yes you, have a blessed and thriving Federated Republic. What Reagan called “shining light on a hill.”
Check 190 countries’ calendars worldwide; most EVERYONE has a July 4th. Day 185 with 181 to go. Just a few of us ascribe importance and celebrate this date annually.
What do you love about these United States? What do you dislike? Is Juneteenth or SeptemberSeventeenth more important? Comment below
If you’ve seen Hamilton on Disney or in the theater, King George III levied a 3d pence (not the VP) tax on the American colonies and Boston Harbor became the first tea party. A bit salty that tea.
Yet, King Newsom the Red (my affectionate name for our overreaching governor), ruler of Taxifornia, resident of Blessed Sacramento castle, this week is charging a 67% gas sales tax RATE on something just as critical as tea. That fossil fuel gasoline & diesel which powers what’s left of the frayed $23 trillion robust economy. Any riots at the gas pump? Any looting of windshield squeegee paper towels? Haven’t seen any, though among the windowbreakers, looters, rioters, arsonists, the progression of current destruction tolerated by feckless petty tyrant mayors and governors, you can find a few free assemblers. USHistory lesson: there is no Constitutional “protesters” clause: amend 1 says “…the right of the people to peaceably assemble…” is guaranteed. Like the 10-100 peaceful protesters at each statuary riot today. I have been and will be a protester, but peaceably for the Truth…not a lie like the Fabricator of Burbank continues to spin.
Are you racist? Probably not. In another piece, I outline the history of this mass marketed “institutional racism” theory. WE are duped so easily BECAUSE we are decent, loving people. 99.9999 % of Americans are such.
Basically, we have racists among us but not genetic racism. How do I know? I have 11 amazing kids, 14 grand kids (4 of which are black in complexion), numerous nieces and nephews, grappling with fragile whitity or white fragility, and other microcosms of “uncomfortableness”.
In fact, i was asked “are you uncomfortable talking about racism?” No, uncomfortable is when the bed is too soft or the car too hot. But in a blessed land where even the poorest are wealthier than any king on earth 100+ years ago, though they need help UP, I am perfectly comfortable discussing as adults, racism; we have the best Republic, IF we can keep it. Like you, i can smell a rat and a con a NY minute mile away.
I can prove that within the last 24 hours, I have physically talked to someone who has a beautiful dark complexion, and have friends as well with similar facial characteristics; even with the Phantom masks everywhere, you can see their beauty behind the PPE of the Plague of Xi.
Quick primer: ONE human race that God began with ONE huMAN and more importantly, the most complex, infinitely beautiful and last creative Creation act: woman.
ONE race? Len you are nuts!
Yes, like the 1854 Party of Slavery likes to divide to conquer, we have divisions, some God ordained, others by man. 190 nations, blessed with good and not so good. One world government, like one world village is dangerous; there is success in boundaries, just as in disciplining a spoiled child. If you don’t have boundaries, a border, sometimes called a wall like Pelosi, Obama and the Vatican have, you have no security. No sovereign nation, just like Poland, Venezuela and Syria, a thread mill for despots.
But, people! Do the anthropological science: There are NOT 12 first couples, a Chinese first couple, black, Japanese, American knees… we are genetically, DNAly one species.
Like different foods, different cultures ARE a blessing. One great thing about being CAtholic, our faith encompasses food: Filipino, Mexican, Cajun, Polish, American, the Eucharist: ALL kinds of flavors, styles, sizes of servings…
Are you a true RACIST, seeing there is only ONE race, beyond the angels? Look closely to the two fine gentlemen flanking Tina at the March for Life in San/St. Pelosiville Francis(co).
EACH has two arms, two legs, and the only real difference between the brothers and my Tina is obvious: they are MUCH taller.
At least a head taller; read the shirts: Be a Voice for Life. Good maxim, racist you. How does that feel, when YOU are called a racist? It’s like breaking up or being the first in line, you feel better if you call the other person racist before they pull out the Party Deck “racism” card. Or do we?
Like a caller said well, we are NOT hyphenated Italian-Americans, Polish German-Americans, Green radical -Americans, black or white Americans, we ARE members andresidents of the last free country on earth. The trip from A to V as in Venezuela is just a stone’s toss IF we are NOT Ben Franklin vigilant regarding keeping America American, not regressive leftist sheep divided for the shearing. Of course, there is room for diversity, as long as you don’t rape, loot or murder another like the stone tablets say so well.
These United States are fragile, not white or black immutables. We have been battling XYZ since we first landed in 1620, the Mayflower Compact days.; there’s always a friend, as well as enemies, to work with or protect from. No, former journalists, now the NYTimes activist’s 1619 project: US did NOT invent slavery! Total revisionist history and worse: propaganda.
Ever hear of Egyptians having 2 million slaves 4 millennia ago? It didn’t take 600,000 human grey and black and blue lives to gain freedom; just 10 plagues, not so unlike the Plague of Xi the mass murdering dynastic despot.
“Let my People Go!” finally got results after Passover’s angel of death did NOT pass over the pharoah’s first born. It’s called the EXODUS and marked by the earliest and last ancient wonder of the world: the Giza pyramid.
Asians owned Asians, Chinese were slaves (coolies) and are masters. 3 days ago, Xi’s CCP was caught spying on the Muslims they hate, the Uigher people (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/china-caught-using-malware-to-spy-on-uighurs-as-a-part-of-campaign-to-curb-the-muslim-population/ar-BB16ejeT)
Black slave masters, like those who sported the Kente cloth that Pelosi and her Dems unwittingly kneeled with, had black AND white slaves. If only Pelosi’s staff had the interweb: “Kente cloth has its origin from the Akan-Ashanti kingdoms in Ghana; the Akan empire of Bonoman. Most Akans migrated out of the area that was Bonoman to create various states. This is where the West African slave trade happened; Pelosi’s appropriate use of slave signage is ironic and telling. Her 1854 party originated East and South America’s slave trade and practices a form of slavery even today. Freedom is NOT free and must be defended.
July 4th’s Declaration of Colonial Independence was NOT the first.
In case you missed civics or AmHistory, there’s the Declaration of Rights (King George not Newsom the Red) Oct 19, 1765 in the very sad Big Rotting Apple, NYCity. Quoting the 2nd paragraph: “That His Majesty’s liege subjects in these colonies are entitled to all the inherent rights and privileges of his natural born subjects within the kingdom of Great Britain”
The Congress was declaring “rights and grievances” to their governing King George III across the pond; just like today, with fires burning, statues being destroyed trying to change history, grievances of all kinds are being televised to the world.
Cops are evil, certain lives matter more than others; “we founded slavery” (VP Tim Kaines); America is systemically racist since 1619 and the Mayflower compact.
The Compact or Agreement was to undertake a “Voyage to plant the first Colony in the Northern Parts of Virginia. They landed further north, survived the socialism experiment in year one, morphed to free enterprise capitalism year 2 and are still historically significant BECAUSE of these lessons of life.
One of our early founding documents, the Mayflower Compact was signed on Nov 11, 1620, long before the allies signed an end to the bloodiest World War on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour. Armistice day, 11/11/1918. Le Francport France.
IF ONLY WE COULD LEARN THAT ALL LIVES MATTER. THE INNOCENT PREBORN THRU THE ELDERLY. MAYBE SOON…while we have a country.
What hypocrisy, fellow Americans. One of our greatest international cities, NYCity, is dying because King George III is replaced with Mayor Wilhelm and Gov Cuomo’s systemic incompetence and elder racist systemic kill off.
How else do you explain putting Plague of Xi infected agents of death INTO 593 nursing homes PURPOSEFULLY on March 25? Where were the voices for life when this man and womanslaughter royal Cuomo decree was issued (not rescinded until May 10 after 4500 infectors unleashed)?
My kids have English, Scottish, Cherokee, Polish, German etc blood. They have married into Sri Lankan, English and more. WE are blessed with beauty, brilliance, innovation, initiative, entrepreneurial prowess, love, did I say love, disagreements, some diseases NOT covid19, hope.
Things ALL families possess if they turn off the burning statues for a moment and look, really look at their fellow American offspring! Music and cooking, baking, bee keeping, real estate, computer science, sculpturing, living. Crosby said it “Count your blessings instead of sheep…” In fact, when Bri married Gavin in the Covidiminished 100 max wedding, we upped the siblings count 15 more!
Sadly, the impatient gratified, those who won’t work smart and hard want it ALL now, instantaneous gratification and will break glass, loot, burn even kill, must be dealt with by ADULTS, recallers of the rights of ALL Americans. Not just the anarchists.
Catholics never know when NOT to procreate: My 10 sibs married into Taiwanese, Asian, Indian, etc (my sibs and kids will correct me and i will edit this mini geneology). We ARE the world but we are Americans who believe we are NOT of this world once we die. Look at your own lifeblood history. Americans are from xxx but ARE brothers and sisters of the parchment. Founding documents all too many haven’t read.
ANOTHER DECLARATION OF RIGHTS: In the “City of Bro Love” Philadelphia (my beloved grandGodchild is Phia Del Phia) on Oct 14, 1774 (Continental Congress) these words should be particularly poignant and relevant: “And, whereas, assemblies have been frequently dissolved (by the Crown), when they attempted to deliberate on grievances”… Today, many grievances are tossed but solutions will come. Further, “Resolved, NCD1. That they are entitled to life, liberty, and property, and they have never ceded to any sovereign power whatever, a right to dispose of either without their consent.”
People love to own other people…and other people’s time, wealth, mind and hopes.
Martin Luther King, Jr. looked forward to a time when his four kids saw people judged for the content of their character, not the color of their skin. 600,000 died in early 1860s to free slaves. The Southern Democrats battle on even today to own blacks (and non blacks) are slaves today; or do you not see the racism in slicing up kids for parts at the Newsom state church of satan, planned parenthood. I know, I saw all of you just now, go, “come on Len; give it a rest. Abortion is as American as apple pie! What, like the Big Rotting Apple, with 41 abortion mills, and 593 nursing homes, which today take out the very young with knives and the very old with Covid plants.
We all must detest owning others like property, which was a roadblock to the Declaration of Independence we celebrate today. The Southern slave states would NOT budge until “property” was struck and replaced with “pursuit of happiness”, a noble goal.
Yes, we have other celebrations of key milestones which is great, like Juneteenth, Christmas, Easter, Eid a Fitr, Passover, Ramadan from the various cultures that make up the melting pot and salad bowl (dependent on your view) of these United States! But, even with Covid, burning toppled statues, riots and more, people are battling to get INTO these United States.
Diversity and variety not only are the spice of life, but the badge of courage of a free, the last free, nation on earth. Outside of Israel, where thousands more French Jews just emigrated because of Semitic “racism” re-emerging. Hitler not only wanted to own all things Jewish via the Nuremberg Racial Laws of 1935, he like the modern master racist, Margaret Sanger, wanted Jews dead.
Sanger’s blood lust is more directed at “useless eaters”, Puerto Ricans, blacks and anyone she DIDN’T like much. Her soldiers of medical fortune carry on her work, having killed off 63 million Americans in 47 years.
Did you know, the 1774 wording “life, liberty and PROPERTY” was objected to by the Southern Democrat slave states and the plantation masters? Now you do. We had free blacks in the North, and enslaved blacks in the South AND North. Transitions are rarely easy. And BLM opportunists ignore the 700 young blacks killed by other young blacks in Chicagoland in 2019. WE NEED each other. WE are IN this together.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness…”
We are a covenant land, based on the rule of law and order. The lawless and disorderly, the anarchists, the racism pimps and victocrats, the misery merchants all agree: they hate America and want to strip mine it completely, like the Billy Jack song “One tin soldier” themes out, of its good and decent people., their hard won freedoms and hard earned cash and property.

Yes, we are in the Dark Ages, but the light of Christ AND of truth is being shown like a laser on so much. I honestly believe an American Renaissance will continue IF we see the next neighbor in our masked path as family.
I can’t force you to look past the misery merchants, the Regressive Leftists who like BLM Inc., Antifastan, coach Bill Ayers, etc. and see the truth:
a GIFT we may not deserve but it has been granted us:
THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND, THIS LAND IS MY LAND. willing to fight for it or buckle to the culture of death?
Listen to Greewood’s, God Bless America. It’s not a sin to love your homeland; it IS a sin to lie about its good qualities and results while finding its pimples supreme.
Venezuela is one of those destinations open to the Hollywood liars who keep promising they would leave our country based on an election they disagreed with. Still here, for some reason; maybe they like to talk before walking the blood route. Or are as two dimensional as the movies they repeat lines in.
Adam “Schitty” Sciffty is the best example of such misery merchants: he lies deeper than a green shag carpet drenched in blood soaked patriot’s shed blood preserving freedom.
Whether you love the devoted Catholic Melania’s husband or hate his guts, his words ring true:
“On this day in 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the United States Declaration of Independence in what is now known as Independence Hall in Philadelphia. In taking this historic step, the Congress proclaimed “these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States.” Today, we celebrate our Nation’s independence and the vision of our Founding Fathers revealed to the world on that fateful day, as well as the countless patriots who continue to ensure that the flames of freedom are never extinguished.
The enduring commitment to the ideals of liberty and justice that have come to define our American spirit stem from our Nation’s founding. In declaring that our rights to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” should be safeguarded for posterity and that “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” our Founding Fathers launched the American experiment that espoused freedom and democracy over tyranny and monarchy. Two hundred and forty-four years later, the principles grounded in the Declaration of Independence continue to guide our Nation forward and maintain its standing as a beacon of liberty, prosperity, and opportunity for all.
Over the past months, the American spirit has undoubtedly been tested by many challenges. Yet, it is in the face of adversity that our country has had some of our proudest moments of triumph. Today, especially, we are reminded of the extraordinary feats that our Nation has accomplished since its founding nearly 250 years ago. Together, we must ensure that we live up to the ideals of our Declaration of Independence and do all that we can to protect and preserve the freedoms that make our country the greatest in the world.
The First Lady and I wish each and every American a happy and blessed Fourth of July and proudly join you in celebrating our great Nation. May God bless the United States of America.”
