Reigniting the revolution for freedom


President Trump delivered two exceptionally positive and patriot speeches back to back last Friday and Saturday. What a wonderfully inspirational weekend with fireworks and flyovers, bands playing patriotic songs, children waving American flags, and our President reminding us how great we are as a nation and how God has blessed us so richly the past 244 years!

Standing before Mount Rushmore, President Trump began his speech, Our founders launched not only a revolution in government, but a revolution in the pursuit of justice, equality, liberty, and prosperity. No nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America and no people have done more to promote human progress than the citizens of our great nation. It was all made possible by the courage of 56 patriots who gathered in Philadelphia 244 years ago and signed the Declaration of Independence. They enshrined a divine truth that changed the world forever when they said, ‘All men are created equal.’ These immortal words set in motion the unstoppable march of freedom. Our founders boldly declared that we are all endowed with the same divine rights, given us by our Creator in Heaven, and that which God has given us, we will allow no one ever to take away ever.”

Enemies within our nation have tried to launch a revolution against the presidency of the United States, relentlessly gushing tripe 24/7, disparaging not only President Trump, but even our founding fathers and patriots who have sacrificed so much. These internal enemies’ lies and actions to destroy America have nearly smothered the Spirit of 1776. Nearly, but not quite.

This past weekend President Trump led his fellow citizens and patriots by reminding us of legacies left by patriots of all races across the past two and a half centuries. Mentioning heroes from America’s wars, both military and cultural, President Trump reignited the revolution led by our founders against the foes of “the pursuit of justice, equality, liberty, and prosperity.” Make no mistake, all Americans are guaranteed the right to pursue these noble values.

It’s time for patriots who love America to take back our nation from those who are literally burning and destroying livelihoods and lives, killing innocents and making a mockery of justice and the rule of law. What is wrong with city and state leaders who allow this anarchy, denigrate police officers, and celebrate divisiveness?

Standing firmly in the wake of wave after wave of withering media attacks, President Trump led a celebration of America remembering her past and resolving to pursue an even brighter future. While America’s enemies within are defacing and destroying our history, both written and forged in bronze, President Trump vowed to create a statuary park of heroes:

John Adams, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Daniel Boone, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Henry Clay, Davy Crockett, Frederick Douglass, Amelia Earhart, Benjamin Franklin, Billy Graham, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, Douglas MacArthur, Dolley Madison, James Madison, Christa McAuliffe, Audie Murphy, George S. Patton, Jr., Ronald Reagan, Jackie Robinson, Betsy Ross, Antonin Scalia, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington, George Washington, and Orville and Wilbur Wright.

Red-blooded Americans of every race are over being sick and tired of the enemies within, and we’re just getting started to reignite the original revolution for freedom again.
