U.S Troops in Afghanistan Remind Us All Why We Celebrate 4th of July

Despite being thousands of miles away from home and engaged in such a messy battle, our armed forces were treated to a fun–but reverent–Independence Day celebration.

On Wednesday, millions of free Americans honored the birth of our nation with barbeques, parades, and lots and lots of fireworks. Hopefully, many took a moment to appreciate and pray for our troops overseas, to whom the 4th of July takes on an added significance as they honor the day in the midst of conflict.

Breitbart reports that our troops in Afghanistan, who have been faced with a recent wave of terrorist bombings in Kabul as the Afgan Taliban and their supposed rival, ISIS, have been hitting the city hard.

Despite being thousands of miles away from home and engaged in such a messy battle, our armed forces were treated to a fun–but reverent–Independence Day celebration.

U.S. service members in Kabul took a moment’s respite from the wave of terrorist bombings in Afghanistan in recent months to enjoy a lunchtime ceremony in honor of America’s 242nd Independence Day on the Fourth of July.
“It’s an important holiday because we fight for it,” U.S. Army Cpl. Ruby Cruz of the 191st Regional Support Group Forward from Fort Allen, Puerto Rico, told Stars and Stripes in Kabul.

Acknowledging that she missed the celebrations back home, she added, “But we have fun here, too, so it’s not too bad.”

A barbecue dinner in the evening is expected to follow the Fourth of July ceremony at the headquarters of the U.S.-NATO mission known as Resolute Support (RS).

“American flags could be seen in all corners of NATO’s Resolute Support headquarters in Kabul on Wednesday as U.S. service-members celebrated Independence Day,” Stars and Stripes reports.

U.S. Gen. John Nicholson, top commander of American and NATO forces in Afghanistan, made a statement to mark the occasion:

For American servicemen and women who are deployed overseas, this day holds a very special significance, and it reminds us of the tremendous sacrifices made by previous generations of patriots in all of America’s wars in defense of liberty at home and abroad. …We hope Afghans will remember this, that reconciliation is possible between rivals.

After 17 years of conflict, Trump’s singular goal in the region is reconciliation between Kabul and the Taliban.

On Independence Day and every day, we honor our troops and thank them for their sacrifice as well as the sacrifice of countless brave men and women who have given their lives to protect our sacred liberty.

Here Is A List Of President Joe Biden’s Day 1 Executive Orders

And it begins…

President Joe Biden. Vice President Kamala Harris. Both titles have a certain ugliness when put in front of those two names. My goodness, America. What have we done? From The Daily Wire: Future White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain released a memo Saturday detailing President-elect Joe Biden’s plans to make good on his campaign promises in the first few hours of his presidency. The memo, sent to incoming senior staff and obtained by The New York Times, states that Biden will address the “four crises” facing the nation: Covid-19, the economy, the climate and racial inequity. The actions expand on the Biden campaign’s message of “build back better” and claim to “reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration” while moving the country forward. CONTINUED: On Inauguration Day, Biden will sign twelve executive orders that directly respond to these four “crises,” with additional directives spread out over a ten-day period. Included in this group are plans to re-join the Paris Climate Agreement, reverse the so-called “Muslim Ban” restricting travel from certain countries, extend the pause on student loan payments and continue current restrictions on foreclosures and evictions. The first day of Biden’s presidency will also mark the beginning of the “100 Day Masking Challenge,” with a mask mandate taking effect for people traveling between states and visiting federal property.

McConnell to Trump: If You Pardon Julian Assange, We’re ‘More Likely to Convict You’ [Report]

He said what!?

As soon as it was learned that President Trump had no chance of being re-elected, Mitch McConnell started bashing POTUS pretty hard. Heck, the Kentucky Republican even blamed Trump for the Capitol riot. But if what Tucker Carlson is saying is true, it goes to show that the Senate Majority Leader was never really in Trump’s corner to begin with. WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351704268563075072?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351707348373557253%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es2_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351707348373557253 https://twitter.com/adamgoldmanNYT/status/1351721466803445762?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351721466803445762%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F Despite everything POTUS accomplished in just four years, Trump still gets little to no respect from members of his own party. From Fox News: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports Democrats’ move to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump and is “done” and “furious” with him, sources familiar told Fox News. It is unclear how McConnell would vote in an impeachment trial, should House Democrats vote to impeach Trump. It is not clear at this point whether McConnell would vote to convict. CONTINUED: One source told Fox News that McConnell has not made up his mind about what to do about impeachment, and does not see this as a partisan exercise like the previous impeachment effort against Trump. Another source told Fox News that McConnell told associates that impeachment will help rid the Republican Party of Trump and his movement. Sounds like things are shaking up to be a little crazy before Trump leaves office. The guy can’t have a moment of peace. History will remember everything the Trump Administration accomplished in a positive light, though. Disagree?
