Donald Trump More Patriotic Than Democratic Challengers, Analysis Finds

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. Trump — who embodies the tenacious spirit and unyielding stamina of the Founding Fathers.

Good Riddance, Bonny Sunch

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. “Mankind.” That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom — not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!”

HEROES: French Police Clear Traffic Jam Caused by Climate Protesters

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. Trump — the French bounced back with an epic display of winning, and proved that there are indeed some tyrants to which they won’t readily surrender.

Democrats Debate, Donald Trump Calls Game

MIAMI — Homeless vagrants wander the streets, beg for change, and sleep in storefronts surrounding the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts in downtown Miami. 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. Luxury hotels line the streets advertising bottomless mimosa brunches. A Ferrari dealership boasts its unattainable wares. 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.

EXCLUSIVE: Beto’s Debate Journal

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. What follow is a (lightly edited) transcript of the document, as obtained by the Washington Free Beacon:

President Sanders: Convener in Chief

The senator advocates a foreign policy that rejects traditional American leadership and would perpetuate 'endless wars'

Put into action, Bernie Sanders's ideas would actually perpetuate, rather than end, America's "endless wars" in the broader Middle East.

When the Straw Men Take Over

The false binary of war or diplomacy is eroding national discussions about foreign policy

No serious person advocating stronger action against Iran is calling for an American invasion or a large-scale war.

It Only Took Three Years For Mainstream Reporters to Catch Up to Conservative Coverage of Ilhan Omar’s Marriage

I have never worked in crisis communications, but I suspect the worst possible lede sentence to read about a client must be this one: "New investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws."
