Friday, July 5, 2019 -- A Glorious Fourth

A Glorious Fourth
Here it is, July 5th, and we're still free men and women.  None of the things the fake news media and the progressive left, including the presidential wannabes, warned us about happened yesterday during the July Fourth celebration at the Lincoln Memorial. 
Trump's tanks did not roll over protestors (Laurence Tribe).  The president did not use his address to extoll himself.  The crowd did not chant "Lock Her Up!"  
What did happen, however, was to the left even worse. An American president told the American people about America's greatness.  He delivered an elegy to our Founders, our documents of liberty and to our heroes great and small. 
President Trump described the America many of us learned about in our schools not that many years ago and were taught about at our dinner tables, churches and movies.  Yet for many American youth today, President Trump's words would have been the first time they heard the true story of the nation they are blessed to live in.
By delivering that speech, President Trump refuted the lies of the "America was never great" crowd.  He has likely started a tradition that many future presidents will want to emulate.
His speech followed several months of America-bashing on the left – from the New York Times editorial board to the cowards at Nike.  And it was followed by a poll showing a horrendous drop in pride in America among those on the political left. 
In short, America needed this Trump "greatest ever" Fourth of July!
Below are some excerpts from the president's address. 
"Nearly 250 years ago, a volunteer army of farmers and shopkeepers, blacksmiths, merchants, and militiamen, risked life and limb to secure American liberty and self-government. 
"This evening we have witnessed the noble might of the warriors who continue that legacy. They guard our birthright with vigilance and fierce devotion to the flag and to our great country.
"Now we must go forward as a nation with that same unity of purpose. As long as we stay true to our cause, as long as we remember our great history, as long as we never, ever stop fighting for a better future, then there will be nothing that America cannot do.
"We will always be the people who defeated a tyrant, crossed a continent, harnessed science, took to the skies, and soared into the heavens.  Because we will never forget that we are Americans, and the future belongs to us.

"The future belongs to the brave, the strong, the proud, and the free. We are one people, chasing one dream and one magnificent destiny. We've all shared the same heroes, the same home, the same heart, and we are all made by the same almighty God.
"From the banks of the Chesapeake, to the cliffs of California, from the humming shores of the Great Lakes, to the sand dunes of the Carolinas, from the fields of the heartland to the everglades of Florida, the spirit of American independence will never fade, never fail, but will reign for ever and ever and ever."
