It’s a week after Memorial Day and just over a month before the 4th of July, and patriotism is in the air. But it takes on a new meaning in a time when our national anthem has become the center of controversy and anti-Americanism runs rampant on the ideological left.
Many Americans voted for Trump because he made one simple promise, to “make America great again,” but, despite all his flaws as a President and a man, his election has reminded many Americans just how great it is.
A 99-year-old WWII veteran’s performance of “God Bless America” that brought the crowd to its feet Tuesday night has gone viral, Fox News reports.
“Raymond T. Mohr, who served as a radio operator with the Army’s 29th Infantry Division and landed on Omaha Beach the day after D-Day, received a standing ovation from the Lehigh Valley IronPigs’ crowd after the touching performance,” they say.
His performance was part of the Philadelphia IronPigs’s Military Appreciation Day at their Tuesday game against the Charlotte Nights at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown.
A player for the IronPigs, Nick Rickles, also tweeted out a picture of himself shaking Mohr’s hand and thanking him for his service.

“God Bless America,” Western Journal explains, was first written by playwright and WWI veteran Irving Berlin, who wrote it for a musical and then decided it wasn’t right for it.
It was resurrected later as the makings of WWII began to appear on the global scene, and it was in this era that it became an iconic hymn to our great nation.
“The opening lyrics, which are not often song, were particularly poignant at the time with the storm clouds of war rising in Europe as Germany seized Austria in the spring of 1938. Additionally, Japan was on the march in Asia, entering into a full-scale war with China in 1937,” WJ explains.
“While the storm clouds gather far across the sea, let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,” the song begins. “Let us all be grateful for a land so fair, as we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.”
“God bless America, land that I love. Stand beside her and guide her through the night with a light from above. From the mountains to the prairies to the oceans white with foam. God bless America, my home sweet home. God bless America, my home sweet home.”
As ever true today as it was back then. God bless America.
Twitter Blacklists Investigative Journalist After CNN Exposé
Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.
The mainstream media really doesn’t like to lose. In fact, much of their thirst for power over their rivals is simply so that they can continue to bully us into watching. And with so many organizations completely aware of how this horrible system is set up, outlets with similar world views tend to look out for one another – particularly when it comes to attack from the other side of the media spectrum. Americans on Friday were beginning to accuse Twitter of doing just that. Critics accused Twitter Thursday of banning Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe from its platform over the right-wing guerrilla news outlet’s damning exposé of CNN. Project Veritas relaunched its #ExposeCNN campaign this week by sharing footage of CNN technical director Charles Chester revealing the liberal network’s dirty laundry. In the footage, Chester claimed that CNN’s “focus” during the 2020 election campaign was to “get rid of” President Trump, that the network hyped its coronavirus coverage for “gangbuster” ratings, and that it aims to “help” Black Lives Matter. On Thursday, O’Keefe’s Twitter account, which was sharing Project Veritas’ reporting, was permanently suspended over alleged use of “fake accounts.” “As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts,'” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News. This would be akin to a publisher retweeting a post that one of their authors had written, advertising the book that they collaborated on. Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.
Actor Vince Vaughn Stands His Ground About Viral Trump Meeting
Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…
