History Facts about Betsy Ross Flag—Why Patriotic Americans are Pushing Back

What Regressives [Progressives] Don’t Want You to Know about the Betsy Ross Flag

Brian Fischer

Colin Kaepernick kicked up a massive dust storm by complaining when Nike put the Betsy Ross flag on the heel of a shoe. You’d have thought by the hue and cry from the regressive left that they had used the Nazi swastika.

Nike means “Victory” in Greek. It is supposed to symbolize masculine strength, a determination to conquer against all odds and to take on the biggest, baddest bully on the block without flinching. But Nike, forgetting all about the spirit that won our freedom from the British, collapsed like a cheap Bedouin tent in a stiff desert breeze. 

Michael Eric Dyson, a regressive professor at Georgetown, actually did compare the Betsy Ross flag to the swastika and made the flag virtually a symbol of the KKK by comparing it to burning crosses.

This “racist” flag, by the way, has been flying proudly in San Francisco, that hotbed of bigotry, since 1964, right outside city hall, apparently without once tripping the hair-trigger sensitivities of Bay Area liberals. It was featured prominently at the second inauguration of that noted racial bigot, Barack Obama, again without triggering anyone. 

History Facts about the Betsy Ross Flag—

Here’s what regressives do not want you to know about the Betsy Ross flag.

  • They do not want you to know that Betsy Ross, as a Quaker from Philadelphia, was a committed abolitionist who never owned a single slave, not ever. 

They do not want you to know that the 13 original stars in a circle symbolized our national oneness. We were no longer 13 separate, detached states, but a union, a single political entity united under the banner of liberty. The United States was a “new constellation” in the universe of nations. That’s all the Betsy Ross flag, adopted as our first national flag in 1777, was about. As writer Jane Hampton Cook says, “The first flag of the United States was not about slavery. It was about unity.”

  • Regressives also really, really, really do not want you to know that African Americans fought for this flag from the first battle of the war for independence, at Bunker Hill, to the last battle at Yorktown. 

Peter Salem, a free African-American, took out the British major who fired the first shots of the war at Bunker Hill. Salem went on to fight the British for another four years. Eventually, African-Americans comprised about four percent of the Continental Army. The Betsy Ross flag was their flag too. And it still is.

  • Our final victory at Yorktown was made possible by an African slave by the name of James Armistead. He was a servant to Britain’s Lord Cornwallis, and his intelligence as an American spy alerted General Lafayette that taking Yorktown was possible. (Armistead became a free man after the war, and changed his name to James Lafayette.) 
One nation under God

George Washington: no freedom without God and bible

The only changes made to the Betsy Ross flag since 1777 have been the addition of stars to represent the admission of new states to the union. We saw no need to alter the basic design of the Betsy Ross flag after the Civil War because slavery was outlawed under that flag. It was the under the newest version of that flag that Union soldiers fought and won the Civil War to bring to an end the abomination of slavery, our nation’s original sin.

In other words, we are still living under the Betsy Ross flag. And it stands, just as it always has, for “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” Long may she wave.

Biblical Worldview: Ben Stein Quotes on Faith in God vs. Atheistic Influence

Biblical Worldview:

Ben Stein Quotes on Faith in God vs. Atheistic Influence

Comments by Ben Stein

A little sanity please…

Only hope we find GOD again before it is too late ! !

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession:

quote-biblically correct not politically correct    I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat…

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.

This is where it began. . .

God in schools    In light of recent events… terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school… The Bible says thou shalt notj kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about.. And we said okay..

Moral Compass Missing

Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

moral relativism    Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’

  • Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell.
  • Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.
  • Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.
  • Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

man reaps what he sows

Are you laughing yet?

  •     Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.
  •     Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Share this if you think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it… no one will know you did But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,

Ben Stein

Western Culture Dinner Topics: American Exceptionalism

Judeo-Christian Worldview

American Exceptionalism

Welcome to Western Culture Dinner Topics! 

TRY TO IMAGINE THE WORLD WITHOUT AMERICA.[1]

I know, a few people with very loud voices, some leading to violent action, continue to hate America and try to destroy her. But while the dogs bark, the wagons roll on. As we have seen in the last election, an overwhelming majority of Americans prefer a patriot at the helm of our government—a patriot who believes in American Exceptionalism.

               No one can deny that America stands out among the nations of the world. But what is the cause of this exceptionalism? That is where the debate arises.

The hate groups claim that America rose to power because of greed and oppression. The truth is, fewer than 5 percent of all people who have ever lived on the earth have lived under conditions that we could consider “free.” [2]

  Only through inspired leadership by men raised up by God for that purpose did America become great. If not for the courage and integrity of the Founding Fathers, would America have been any better than the bloody tyrannies of previous thousands of years of history? But the protecting Hand of God has been over America from the beginning.

               Even in his historic voyage of 1492, despite daunting opposition, Christopher Columbus was driven by a sense of divine purpose. He brought with him a Jewish Rabbi, for he hoped to find the lost tribes of Israel. His writings reveal that he was led by the Holy Spirit. His first action upon arriving on shore was to kneel and thank God, and then claim the land for Jesus Christ.

George Washington and his compatriots felt a strong connection to Biblical Israel. They wove it into the great shield, into the money, into the architecture, and in everything they did.

George Washington consecrated, not only his own life and sacred honor, but he also dedicated his troops and his every action to the cause of liberty. He made a covenant with God. In return, God has blessed this land with liberty, protection, and prosperity, so that the gospel of Jesus Christ could flourish and be sent out to all the world.[3]

So the next time you hear the current smear campaign against America and the good men who have fought and died for the liberty we enjoy, let us remember that without the smile of God’s approval and His protective Hand, we would all be in bondage, just like the rest of the world.   

To preserve our religious liberty, pass on biblical values to the rising generation.

Critical thinking: Decision Making, based on Emotions, or Absolutes of God?

Critical thinking:

Decision Making, based on Emotions, or  Absolutes of God?

Dr. Joe McKeever

The Lord is not asking for feelings or wishing for greater emotions.

I cannot find any place in Scripture that places a premium on emotional exuberance.  But it’s not a sign of anything permanent. But that doesn’t seem to be what the Lord is wanting. It’s the whole life, not the emotional outskirts. ~Dr. Joe McKeever American Family Association The Daily Stand

 

Skyler Gleue

American Family Association

The Daily Stand

Christ often presented hard, even difficult, teachings. Selective morality is not merely a contemporary conflict new to Christians, and due to that, Christ and His apostles frequently scolded secularized Christianity. Jesus did not have an identity crisis, and He does not expect us to have one either.

Absolutes of God

C.S. Lewis once said that “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.

Philosopher Blaise Pascal once stated, “People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive.” Pascal’s comment suggests that we are more inclined to ‘reason’ based on emotions rather than logic, or at the most, let our deductions be clouded with our emotions.

There is tremendous truth behind this observation. However, whatever is most attractive is not always advantageous. Big businesses may benefit and capitalize on compulsive and emotion-based decision making, but when this mindset enters the church or a religious atmosphere it often conflicts with objective truth. Because of this mindset of arriving at beliefs based on what is attractive rather than absolute, many churches have become lukewarm in their teachings on difficult truths and adopted a secularized mindset.

Alongside this, many self-professing followers of Christ also tend to hold secular positions on important social issues of our day, such as abortion, separation of Church and State, and tolerance toward contradictory political views. Many Christians openly support these views on the basis of love, acceptance, and conformity. This causes an identity crisis for what Christianity absolutely stands for and against.

Christ often presented hard, even difficult, teachings. Selective morality is not merely a contemporary conflict new to Christians, and due to that, Christ and His apostles frequently scolded secularized Christianity.

Jesus did not have an identity crisis, and He does not expect us to have one either. To stress the importance of His message, Christ offers a caution. Immediately preceding the warning by Jesus where He said “For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few,” He issue a secondary warning: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” Jesus instructs us to recognize false teachers, those who are part of the Church and tolerant toward anti-Biblical social issues, by their character (Matthew 7). We are further instructed to “test all things” and “hold on to what is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21).

C.S. Lewis once said that “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” When we treat the Scriptures as a buffet and selectively choose what we accept and deny, we inadvertently reject Christianity as a whole. God calls such people “lukewarm” and “false prophets,” and this taints the mission of the Church, to be the “light of the world” (Matthew 5:14). God rejects secularized Christianity, and so should we.

History Timeline: Thomas Jefferson, Barbary Pirates, US Marine History, and Sharia Law Explained

History Timeline:

Thomas Jefferson, Barbary Pirates, US Marine History, and Sharia Law Explained

A 232 Year History of our fight against Islam & why it is no longer taught in our public schools…

Thomas Jefferson founded US Marines

When Thomas Jefferson saw there was no negotiating with Muslims, he formed what is now the Marines (sea going soldiers). These Marines were attached to U. S. Merchant vessels. When the Muslims attacked U.S. merchant vessels they were repulsed by armed soldiers, but there is more.

The Marines followed the Muslims back to their villages and killed everyone in the village.

It didn’t take long for the Muslims to leave U.S. Merchant vessels alone.

English and French merchant vessels started running up our flag when entering the Mediterranean to secure safe travel.

Why the Marine Hymn contains the verse, “To the Shores of Tripoli “.

This is very interesting and a must read piece of our history. It points out where we may be heading.

Barbary Pirates extorted Exorbitant Ransoms

Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago the United States had declared war on Islam, and Thomas Jefferson led the charge!

At the height of the 18th century, Muslim pirates (the “Barbary Pirates”) were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic .

They attacked every ship in sight, and held the crews for exorbitant ransoms. Those taken hostage were subjected to barbaric treatment and wrote heart-breaking letters home, begging their governments and families to pay whatever their Mohammedan captors demanded.

These extortionists of the high seas represented the North African Islamic nations of Tripoli, Tunis , Morocco , and Algiers – collectively referred to as the Barbary Coast – and presented a dangerous and unprovoked threat to the new American Republic .

Before the Revolutionary War, U.S. merchant ships had been under the protection of Great Britain . When the U.S. declared its independence and entered into war, the ships of the United States were protected by France.

However, once the war was won, America had to protect its own fleets.

1784  US Congress paid Bribes to Barbary States

Thus, the birth of the U.S. Navy. Beginning in 1784, 17 years before he would become president, Thomas Jefferson became America’s Minister to France. That same year, the U.S. Congress sought to appease its Muslim adversaries by following in the footsteps of European nations who paid bribes to the Barbary States rather than engaging them in war.

1785 Jefferson proposes Coalition of Nations to oppose Barbary Extortion

In July of 1785, Algerian pirates captured American ships, and the Dye of Algiers demanded an unheard-of ransom of $60,000. It was a plain and simple case of extortion, and Thomas Jefferson was vehemently opposed to any further payments.

Instead, he proposed to Congress the formation of a coalition of allied nations who together could force the Islamic states into peace. A disinterested Congress decided to pay the ransom.

1786  Quran: All Non-Muslim Nations must be Subdued and Enslaved—Islam Ambassador

In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Great Britain to ask by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved American citizens, and why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

The two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran that all nations who would not acknowledge their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

Despite this stunning admission of premeditated violence on non-Muslim nations, as well as the objections of many notable American leaders, including George Washington, who warned that caving in was both wrong and would only further embolden the enemy, for the following fifteen years, the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages.

The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to over 20 percent of the United States government annual revenues in 1800.

1801  President Jefferson refuses to Pay Ransom; Barbary States Declare War

Jefferson was disgusted. Shortly after his being sworn in as the third President of the United States in 1801, the Pasha of Tripoli sent him a note demanding the immediate payment of $225,000 plus $25,000 a year for every year forthcoming.

That changed everything.

Jefferson let the Pasha know, in no uncertain terms, what he could do with his demand. The Pasha responded by cutting down the flagpole at the American consulate and declared war on the United States.

Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers immediately followed suit.

Jefferson builds Navy

Jefferson, until now, had been against America raising a naval force for anything beyond coastal defense, but, having watched his nation be cowed by Islamic thuggery for long enough, decided that it was finally time to meet force with force.

He dispatched a squadron of frigates to the Mediterranean and taught the Muslim nations of the Barbary Coast a lesson he hoped they would never forget. Congress authorized Jefferson to empower U.S. ships to seize all vessels and goods of the Pasha of Tripoli and to “cause to be done all other acts of precaution or hostility as the state of war would justify”.

When Algiers and Tunis, who were both accustomed to American cowardice and acquiescence, saw the newly independent United States had both the will and the right to strike back, they quickly abandoned their allegiance to Tripoli.

Origin of Marines’ “Leathernecks” name

The war with Tripoli lasted for four more years, and raged up again in 1815. The bravery of the U.S. Marine Corps in these wars led to the line “to the shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Hymn, and they would forever be known as “leathernecks” for the leather collars of their uniforms, designed to prevent their heads from being cut off by the Muslim scimitars when boarding enemy ships.

Islam, and what its Barbary followers justified doing in the name of their prophet and their god, disturbed Jefferson quite deeply.

America had a tradition of religious tolerance. In fact Jefferson, himself, had co-authored the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, but fundamentalist Islam was like no other religion the world had ever seen.

Jefferson warns: Supremacy and Violence vs. Religious Freedom

We believe that religion is instituted of God; and that men are amenable to Him, and to Him only, for the exercise of it, unless their religious opinions prompt them to infringe upon the rights and liberties of others. Doctrine and Covenants 134:4

A religion based on supremacy, whose holy book not only condoned but mandated violence against unbelievers, was unacceptable to President Jefferson.

His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose an even greater threat to the United States .

Islam Explained Today—Sharia Law becoming new State Religion

This should concern every American. That Muslims have brought about

  • women-only classes and swimming times in America at taxpayer-funded universities and public pools;
  • that Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged;
  • Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces because they offend Islamist sensibilities;
  • ice cream has been discontinued at certain Burger King locations because the picture on the wrapper looks similar to the Arabic script for Allah;
  • public schools are pulling pork from their menus; on and on and on and on..

It’s death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across America. By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what is really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our culture, the United States is cutting its own throat with a politically correct knife and helping to further the Islamists’ agenda.

Sadly, it appears that today America’s leaders would rather be politically correct than victorious!

Sharia Law Explained

 

By Jason D. Hill

Islam is not only incompatible with democracy.  It is inimical to America’s fundamental values and principles.  More important, it is in violation of the United States Constitution.  It is time for the United States to make a pre-emptive strike against a moral and political ideology whose stated goal is the abolition of our political system.

When we think of Islam mainly as a religion, we cannot disambiguate it from Sharia law, which, when examined, allows us to see that the legal, cultural and political aspects of the religion supersede the purely private religious aspects of it.  World Islam, above all, has become a political ideology.

Sharia law is a weaponized political tool supervening the public sphere that violates every sacred tenet of American life.

  • The institution of slavery remains lawful under sharia law.
  • Those who repudiate their faith in Islam directly or indirectly are guilty of capital offenses.  It, therefore, conflicts with our constitutional human right of freedom of conscience and religion.
  • The Sharia law of apostasy restricts other human rights, such as freedom of expression and association.
  • Sharia law does not guarantee equal rights for men and women.

Rush Limbaugh

RUSH: Our buddies at the Media Research Center went back to their archives and they dragged up (or dragged out) a Good Morning America promo for a climate change special ABC was running back in 2008. Good Morning America played a promo for a special that aired that fall called Earth 2100, and I want to play for you a portion of the promo. Remember, ABC played this in 2008, 11 years ago on Good Morning America… It illustrates just how wrong and fearmongering the entire climate change, global warming (now “extreme weather”) crowd is.

 

PETER GLEICK: (dramatic music) In 2015, we’ve still failed to address the climate problem!

JOHN HOLDREN: We’re going to see more floods, more droughts, more (fire noise) wildfires!

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: (channel change sound effect) Flames cover hundreds of square miles.

MAN 1: (storm b-roll noise) We expect more intense hurricanes!

MAN 2: Well, how warm is it going to get? How much will sea level rise? We don’t really know where the end is.

MAN 3: (channel change sound effect) Temperatures have hit dangerous levels.

MAN 4: (channel change sound effect) Agricultural production’s dropping because temperatures are rising!

HEIDI CULLEN: (images of hungry people) There’s about one billion people who are malnourished. That number just continually grows!

TEENAGE BOY: (prediction of the future) It’s June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99.

MAN 5: (prediction of the future) Gas has reached over $9 a gallon!

MAN 6: I’m scared (bleep) right now. But I have to get this out.

RUSH: It was a bunch of young people in this ad. They were predicting that by 2015 — four years ago — milk would be 13 bucks a gallon, gasoline over $9 a gallon. The video effects show Manhattan half underwater.

They show very little of Miami left. This was gonna happen by 2015, and this was just a promo for a special that was to run and did run in the fall of 2008 called Earth 2100 — and it’s a good catch, because it illustrates just how wrong and fearmongering the entire climate change, global warming (now “extreme weather”) crowd is.

Barr Not Concerned About Critics, Legacy: ‘Everyone Dies’

Attorney General William Barr, who has come under fire from critics who say he’s defending President Donald Trump, says in an interview airing Friday that at this stage of his life, such attacks don’t “make any difference.”

“I am at the end of my career,” Barr told CBS News’ Jan Crawford in an interview for “CBS This Morning.” “Everyone dies and I am not, you know, I don’t believe in the Homeric idea that idea that you know, immortality comes by, you know, having odes sung about you over the centuries.”

He added that such attacks are coming from him serving during a “hyper-partisan period of time” and he knew it would be a matter of time before he came under attack.

“Nowadays, people don’t care about the merits and the substance,” said Barr. “They only care about who it helps, who benefits, whether my side benefits or the other side benefits, everything is gauged by politics.”

Any attorney general during this period of time would end up losing political capital, Barr said, and he does not regret returning as attorney general for a second time, having served before under President George H.W. Bush.

“In many ways, I’d rather be back in my old life but I think that I love the Department of Justice, I love the FBI, I think it is important that we not, in this period of intense partisan feeling, destroy our institutions,” he added.

Barr said he has a “good, professional working relationship” with Trump.

RUSH: All right. So here, it’s everything, it’s Fox News, PMS, NBC, CNN, they’re all breathlessly waiting. So somebody told ’em that massive protests are scheduled. If massive protests are scheduled, they can’t be spontaneous. They’ve gotta be bought, paid for, and planned.

They all bought it, they all believed it, they all assumed it was gonna happen, and then today came, and there weren’t any. There were zilch, zero, nada. There weren’t any protests. Nobody showed up! And we have a random act of journalism on CNN. They actually told the truth about it. Some reporter named Nick Patton Walsh.

RUSH: Now, Donald Trump in the United Kingdom.  Big, big mistake. Now we found that… Remember the story we had…? I think it was Monday. This is Wednesday, so it was Monday.

The media has been working overtime to manufacture a spat and a disagreement and a state of dislike between the queen and Donald Trump. And while doing that, they were holding out hope and promoting and warning everybody about massive anti-Trump protests that didn’t happen — and the queen loves Trump! You can see it in the pictures. The queen is charmed by the president and actually asked him to come back to our country as soon as you can, on his departure. You can see it in all the pictures.

Despite the best efforts of CNN, New York Times, the Washington Post to portray this as something it wasn’t, the queen was utterly charmed by Donald Trump. Melania Trump was an absolute star on this trip. And the photos of her and the president chatting… There was a dinner. I guess they hosted a dinner last night for Prince Charles and the Duchess of “Cornwallis,” whatever, Camilla, and are waiting for ’em to show up.

And Trump and Melania are standing there like a married couple of many years chatting and laughing with each other and winking and nodding and so forth. It was utterly a completely different picture than what you get from the Drive-By Media. (impression) “Melania can’t wait to get out! Melania’s so embarrassed! Melania worries about her young son growing up with such an ogre.” None of this is true.

The British press, as I say, totally flipped and wrote a bunch of positive stuff about this trip.

RUSH: Yeah. Here it is right here in the U.K. Daily Mail: “‘I hope you come to this country again soon:’ What the Queen told Donald Trump at the end of his state visit as he bid fond farewell to Britain following moving ceremony to salute the heroes of D-Day” 75 years ago. D-Day. You wonder how many young people know about it, what it really was, why it was important. Is it taught anymore?

I’ve been over there twice. I’ve been to the Normandy beaches twice. I’ve been to the cemetery. I’ve been to Pointe du Hoc in France. You see where it happened — and if you have enough information about what happened, it cannot help but move you. The first time I was there was the 50th anniversary. I was there the week after they celebrated it, 25 years ago. It was a moving, moving ceremony that they had. There were even some people still alive who had participated in it, and they were able to participate in the ceremony.

Obama’s gift to the Queen

Do you remember what Obama gave the queen? Let me tell you. He gave the queen an iPod with his speeches recorded on it. Now, we don’t know what the queen — we never saw a public reaction. I will guarantee you — well, I can’t guarantee you, but the odds are the queen laughed and looked at the that iPod, said, “Who does this guy think he is?” Because the queen knew that Obama had no love lost for the Brits. The Brits were colonialists, Obama hated colonialists. And I think the gift of a bunch of speeches was really a diss, in a way. He knew she wasn’t gonna listen to his words. But if she did, I guarantee you the first speeches on there would have been what Obama thought of the Brits. Remember the story about removing the bust of Winston Churchill out of the Oval Office? That story went back and forth, true, false. It did get moved. Not out of the White House, but it was moved out of the Oval Office after Obama was inaugurated.

 

Trump’s Gift to the Queen. . . Memorializes D-Day and World War I

 

RUSH: Let me tell you something about the queen. People have forgotten. Let me interrupt you here. Do you guys remember Trump gave the queen a tremendous gift.

“Trump gave the queen a silver and silk poppy brooch from Tiffany & Co. in a custom wood White House jewelry box…

“The poppy symbolizes remembrance for those who died in World War I, though the White House could have chosen the gift for the 75th anniversary of D-Day on Thursday.” He may have had

done it for that reason which, as you know, is tomorrow. “Prince Philip,” the husband of the queen — who is not doing well, folks. These people have remarkable longevity, but nevertheless, Prince Philip is not doing well. “Prince Philip received a personalized Air Force One jacket as well as a first-edition, signed copy of World War II aviator James Doolittle’s autobiography, I Could Never Be So Lucky Again.

“The gifts pointed to the fact that Prince Philip was a pilot and served in World War II, according to Town & Country. According to [Town & Country magazine], these official gift exchanges require consultation with the State Department. The first lady’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN Melania Trump was ‘very involved with the gift selection,’ alongside the State Department.” So I wanted to get all of that straight. 

Great Week for Trump, Bad Week for Drive-By Media

Two Polls That Are Good News for Trump

RUSH: “Americans View Fake News as a Bigger Problem Than Terrorism.” Holy smokes!

  • This has been a very bad week — and it’s only Wednesday — for the Drive-By Media worldwide. Remember the story about the dead North Korean officials that were executed? They’re walking around. They’re alive. They are above ground. As we say on the golf course, “They’re on the right side of the grass.”

Social Media Abuse of Power

  • The African-American forklift operator who put together the satirical video of Pelosi appearing to slur her words? And we were told that an enterprising journalist called Facebook and ferreted out the truth, and Facebook just divulged (because the reporter wanted to know) the name of the person that did it. It turns out that the media used convicted felons to dox this guy. We were not told the truth about how his identity was learned.

RUSH: There’s a new poll out, a CNN poll. They are not happy reporting this poll. The upshot of the CNN poll is more than two-thirds of the American people are happy with the economy. (impression) “That… that… that… that…” They got a problem. They’ve got to do something about that at CNN. They’ve been trying to do something about that and they’re obviously failing. Two-thirds happy with the economy.

 

And then here is a story from the Millennial website called Axios, and this headline is a big win for Trump. It’s a poll from the Pew Research Center. “Americans View Fake News as a Bigger Problem Than Terrorism.”
