American athletes continue to enjoy unprecedented success under President Donald J. Trump. It’s just one example of the myriad ways our current commander in chief has delivered on his promise to make our Country great again. Thank you!
There’s a new Nike controversy involving a shoe the woke corporation assumed would be a charmingly patriotic way to cash in on the 4th of July holiday spirit. The shoe in question, which featured the original version of the American flag designed by Betsy Ross, was ultimately #cancelled after complaints from Colin Kaepernick, among others, that the flag was offensive due to its association with slavery.
As Americans from sea to shining sea prepare to celebrate our country’s independence from the tyrant King George, it’s worth taking some time to reflect on how lucky we are to live in a free country governed by a leader — Donald J.

Even the French can be heroes now and then. Despite getting knocked out of the Women’s World Cup on their home turf after a 2-1 loss to the United States — the most recent example of American athletes enjoying unprecedented success under President Donald J.

A massive billboard touts the February 2020 arrival of Hamilton, presented by Bank of America, another massive corporation going out of its way to embrace “woke capitalism” by cutting ties with immigrant detention centers and private prisons.

Meanwhile, a stage full of presidential candidates (and one best-selling guru) compete to agree most forcefully with the premise that anyone who steps foot on American soil should be allowed to stay permanently, and be eligible for taxpayer-funded health care — the sorts of policies that have fueled an anti-establishment backlash throughout Europe. They spoke of an “existential threat” to the planet (climate change) that will require the implementation of policies that have sparked a popular revolt in France.
It’s not uncommon for presidential candidates to scribble down some notes or talking points on sheets of paper during a debate. It is, however, highly unusual for candidates to leave behind a sprawling journal entry of the kind found on Beto O’Rourke’s lectern following Wednesday night’s showdown in Miami.
