Trump’s tanks are back on the flatbed trucks, to critics’ dismay

 Don’t you feel foolish, my liberal-progressive-socialist acquaintances?!

‘Critics said’ you should be accustomed to that by now.

In the run-up to the Independence Day “Salute to America,” the Left predicted a military coup led by President-for-Life Trump.

The two (count ’em: 2) Abrams tanks in Trump’s parade would lob ordnance into the House of Representatives. The President would push a plunger, launching the inter-continental ballistic missile disguised as the Washington Monument. Target: California. Navy Seals would seize the Constitution from the National Archives for extraordinary rendition. Bret Kavanaugh would suspend habeas corpus. Ivanka would be named ambassador to Russia.

Quoting its usual sources (those being Democrats), The New York Times committed one of its trademark “Critics Said” articles. 

Trump’s decision to turn Washington’s annual Fourth of July celebration into a kind of Trump-branded rally for America has drawn criticism from Democrats, top representatives of the city government and many military officials [Blaska: at least, the ones that the Times quoted, those being former Obama people] who believe the president is using the troops and their gear as political props.

Branco Independence day

Uber-liberal D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser bad-mouthed the event and “she’s an American,” Politico assures,  “who loves celebrating the Fourth of July as a non-political event.” Mayor Bowser has “some concerns about a president not celebrating the military but glorifying military might. That scares me the most. 

Which prompted Ann of Althouse to respond:

The fireworks are the “bombs bursting in air” of the National Anthem. Now, the 4th marks the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, so the ideas of freedom and self-government are the most accurate focus. But the Declaration started a war, and that worked out well, and we’re glad we did it — or so we say on the 4th. So what’s so bad about “glorifying military might”?

Blaska Policy Werkes Bulletin: One is left with the impression that Democrats would rather celebrate military weakness. 

Our faces are red even if our politics are not

CNN was forced to admit:

President Donald Trump was as good as his word Thursday: He saluted America. [It was] one of the least polarizing speeches of his presidency. …. His remarks did not turn into the hyper-partisan campaign-style rally that some of his critics [Blaska: like those at CNN] had feared.”

At Slate: 

Credit where it’s due: The president did not go full authoritarian on the National Mall on Thursday.

Trump closed his speech on a note of unity, describing Americans as “one people chasing one dream and one magnificent destiny.” But the event, which will likely be viewed by half the country as a patriotic tribute to men and women in uniform, and the other half as a corrupt, quasi-fascistic boondoggle … 

Blaska’s Bottom LineCan you imagine any of the Democrat presidential candidates talking great about the USA like this? Instead, the party out of power describes our country as one hot mess and plays the politics of resentment. Well, they have to bitch about something, when they’re not longing for the days of court-ordered school busing. Because the economy is booming and …

They are tired of winning!

“Trump’s policies are helping workers more than Obama’s did.”

economyEspecially in nine key swing states, including Wisconsin, the Wall Street Journal notes.

Here is the great paradox of the Barack Obama economy: …Those with financial assets prospered more than middle-class wage earners. The Obama Democrats talked constantly about inequality rather than growth, and the result was less growth and more inequality.

This just in: Economy adds 224K jobs in June, exceeding expectations. Wages up 3.1% over a year ago.

    How crazy do you have to be? He makes it sound like Trump is a sociopath that would bomb countries, topple stable governments and create Mad Maxesque hellscapes in service to a belief in his own infallibility…

    There was another Parade before the 4th of July event.

    THAT parade was made up of Lefty Media Morons slobbering effusively in a paranoid tizzy about the gloom-n-doom they expected at the other.

    But just like @richard lesiak’s hysterically unfounded tearful/fearful predictions, they ALL wilted like August lettuce.

    My Favorite part of El Presidente’s speech was when to alluded to the time in the revolutionary war
    days when Washington’s troops took control of British airports. Forgettting, of course, that the invention of flight wouldn’t come for another 125 years or so. Damn.,those Brits were so far
    ahead of our boys! Or is it that our president is really that stupid?

      That’s the same pettiness that Richard cherry picked out of an otherwise non-partisan speech praising the history of the United States of America.

      For Richard and Leo; it’s been reported that there was some kind of glitch in the teleprompter and if you spend a moment or two reviewing that part of the speech it’s quite clear that something happened. Trump may not be an eloquent or inspirational speaker but he doesn’t deserve the bull shit attacks that people you and the media dish out.

      Your behaviors are shameful and disrespectful.

    oh my gard, I’m so triggered, riots in the streets. dogs and cats living together. If the trump said to drink more water and eat more vegetables you loony tunes would be going nuts. So sorry he saluted the military and american exceptionalism on the day most fitting to give that speech. Most people tuned it out I watched on Youtube later in the evening. Nothing was controversial about it in fact it was quite uplifting. It was more fake news fear mongering about his intentions.

    Hey ABobby and Lesiak, so you are all for 15 an hour a living wages because it will close the gap in wages. I think you need to get behind my movement of 100 dollar and hour wage ceiling. If you make more than that you have give that money to either taxes or back the company or government so they can hire more workers or pay more to benefits. I mean come on why would you need more than that to live. if you need more than you are greedy and most likely killing the planet with your lifestyle. 100 bucks and hour x 26 weeks biweekly pay period x no more than 40 hours a week. What could go wrong? If you demand a floor then there has to be ceiling!

    Just think we could close wage gaps in swoop, cmon what could go wrong? we would bring fiscal responsibility back to america and underperforming youth and for all new people that just step foot in american and become citizens by de facto walking across the border. We would be able to pay for my 2nd big proposal medicare for the world. no longer do I just get to work hard for my family I can also help pay for the worlds families healthcare. It is a human right and we hold the most debt and inflated wages of all other countries on the planet so we should just have to pay for them also with no quesions asked.

    Yeah my new bumper sticker I just bought. Democrats 2020 , ” Equal Misery for All”

    He also provides a fabulous suggestion on how to reward NIKE for their craven cowardice-n-complicity in allowing the flag to become a “hate symbol” despite its being on no one’s “hate radar.”

    It’s also the Best Idea I’ve heard since that of transporting illegals to Lefty Sanctuary cities:

    “But what if these (hate) groups started wearing T-shirts with the Nike ‘swoosh’ on them?

    “Frankly, I think it would be a brilliant move by these hate groups to do just that. Nike would freak out, giving these attention-seekers a bonanza in free publicity.”

    Fingers crossed for NIKE, and by extension Kaepernick AND Lefty, getting it deservedly GOOD-n-Hard!

          @AnonyBob;

          The Hopey Changey economy was largely a bad joke, partly because of the far-reaching ripple effects of the democrat vote-generation scheme known as the CRA, the Clintonistas deregulating (CFMA, FSMA, Riegle-Neal, etc.) Wall Street, the PRWORA DOUBLING extreme poverty among societies most fragile, and the OmniBus Crime Act and its MASS INCARCERATION of minorities.

          But mostly because of the staggering ineptitude one expects from an Affirmative Action hire and the guilt-suffocated White Lefty morons tasked with cleaning up after a talentless $#!T-storm

          ‘Course, MUCH progress was made with the construction of many cages and concentration camps, but they were called “temporary dorms” and “reassignment facilities.”

          Heck, even Jack Tapper went after the dimmest of the DIM, (Alexandria OCRAZYo-Cortez), about that, and she could only manage to stumble/mumble/bumble an incoherent response about her being a bartender at the time.
