As Americans celebrated the 242nd birthday of our country on July 4th, President Donald Trump took to social media to tweet out a message to Americans commemorating American independence.
After expressing that both he and First Lady Melania Trump were honored to wish everyone a Happy Independence Day, President Trump noted the accomplishments of the Founding Fathers and just exactly what these men put on the line when they attempted this great experiment that became known as the United States of America. He then recognized the United States military both currently serving and veterans of the past, stating:
“It was 242 years ago today in Philadelphia that 56 brave representatives of the American people adopted our Declaration of Independence. They announced to the world that America would be free, that America would be independent. They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. In so doing they forever changed the course of human history. General George Washington and his army of brave patriots fought a long, tough war with the British to win America’s freedom. Win they Did! From Bunker Hill to Saratoga to Yorktown, American soldiers died to secure our independence and to make a sovereign nation.”
The president noted that this hallmark of courage is woven through the fabric of the history of America with those that serve in the military and their continued sacrifices.

“Today, as we celebrate the Fourth of July with friends and family, let us never forget our freedom has been earned through the blood and sweat and sacrifice of American heroes — and these were great American heroes. And let us share the grateful heart of our nation with every veteran and member of the United States Armed Forces. Truly special people. We are in awe of their courage and we are eternally in their debt. Together, we honor their noble sacrifice by pledging our love and loyalty to our country, our flag and our fellow citizens.”
Yet rather celebrate America, the leftist progressives took turns taking potshots. The “festivities” began with The Washington Post choosing to mock President Trump because the rich and famous of Hollywood and their musical counterparts were not performing at this year’s White House Independence Day celebration. It seems the fact that this year’s event was “organized by the USO for more than a thousand military troops and their families” and the significance of that passed them by.
WaPo made sure to compare the 2018 celebration of our nation’s birth with the 2009 celebration under former President Barack Obama where comedian Jimmy Fallon, the Foo Fighters, and singer Michelle Branch performed, making snide comparisons stating – “This year, taking the stage will be . . . two ‘American Idol’ finalists. As in, not actual winners. Ever heard of Jax? Jonny Brenns? Not ringing a bell? You’re not alone. “
Singer Jax was told by one such “enlightened” individual to “burn in hell” for choosing to perform for the USO at this year’s celebration by @DJELove.
hey @Jax , I heard that you are performing at the White House on July 4th this year. that is really too bad, because I have been following your career with great interest, but now that you've been outed as a Trumper, you can fucking burn in hell. #UNFOLLOWJAX

Interestingly, Jax who WaPo snarkily notes “finished third on ‘American Idol’ in 2015,” neatly put social media haters and WaPo critics in their place by tweeting – “I would have jumped at the chance to perform for any president. It’s an honor & once in a lifetime opportunity to perform at the White House for a military event, given that my brother is a Marine & father a 9/11 first responder. Telling me to burn in hell seems counterproductive.”

Classical pianist Lola Astanova, also performing at the Independence Day concert, told Women’s Wear Daily, “This day goes beyond one president. It’s a way to pay tribute to our troops. That’s really what this concert is about. Presidents come and go, but the Fourth of July and the celebration of our country is really what this event is about. It’s an honor to perform the national anthem at the White House on Independence Day. As a first-generation American, it’s quite meaningful.”
Meanwhile, Sen. Chuck Schumer (NY-D) rather than celebrating independence and the birth of America, chose instead to celebrate d***h and destruction. Schumer tweeted – “Today, I am celebrating the FREEDOM of women to make their own health care decisions, as established by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade.”

This comes on the heels of the leftist hysteria that with the announcement of the retirement of Justice Kennedy, the Roe v. Wade decision may be overturned. Kennedy was the swing vote in 1992 when he chose to reaffirm the disastrous decision responsible for the wholesale slaughter of the unborn. Since at least 2005, Kennedy has been the swing vote on some of the Court’s most controversial decisions – and has been responsible for several 5-4 rulings, such as the legalization of same-s*x marriage, the preservation of Roe v. Wade, the upholding of warrantless wiretapping, and the overturning of Washington D.C.’s h*****n ban.
The host of “America Talks Live” John Cardillo called Schumer out for his disgusting tweet, stating in a tweeted response – “Really
@SenSchumer? Abortion is your first thought on July 4th?”

It seems the left has quite literally gone over the edge as they used Independence Day as a means to trash America while continuing to spread their message of violence, hate, and negativity. As they continued to push the envelope, leave it to radical propagandist Michael Moore. Moore attempted to appropriate Independence Day with his own attempts at revisionism declaring the day “Resistance Day” in a ridiculous tweet where he calls on people to “revolt.”
Happy Resistance Day!
The revolt continues, some 242 years later.
C’mon, people! Let’s finish this!

Has-been comedian Chelsea Handler chose Independence Day to apologize to the world for President Trump, claiming most Americans are “ashamed” of President Trump.
To every country on the 4th of July. We’re sorry about our president. He doesn’t reflect all of our views—and we hope you know that the majority of us are ashamed. We will rally each other and come back to the world one step at a time. #novemberiscoming #alsosorryabouthotdogs

And the Democratic Party revealed why so many people are choosing to #WalkAway as they made sure to publically express why they are the party of hate, anger, and violence as they issued a bleak message of despair on the Fourth of July, stating –
“As we celebrate our nation’s independence, we recognize that America’s founding promise remains out of reach for too many families. Too many members of our society are still struggling to find a good-paying job or get the health care they need. Too many women, LGBTQ Americans, people of color, and people with disabilities still face inequality and injustice across our society.”

“Everywhere we look, our most fundamental values are under attack. Thousands of children have been separated from their parents at our southern border. At our highest court, workers’ rights are being taken away, voting rights are under assault, Muslim Americans are being discriminated against because of their faith, and women’s right to choose is under threat like never before. Democrats reaffirm our commitment to fighting for the values of inclusion and opportunity for everyone.”
Yet it seems President Trump does not share this view of America. Instead, President Trump celebrated American accomplishments proclaiming “Our country is doing GREAT!”
Happy Fourth of July….Our Country is doing GREAT!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 4, 2018
Interestingly enough, it seems the majority of Americans agree with President Trump’s sentiments. The newest Gallup poll reveals that some 55% of American adults believe that the country’s best days are still ahead. This is an increase over 2012 when just 47% of Americans believed the same. Americans are hopeful again about the prospect of making America great!
Colorado Christian Cake Shop Owner Exonerated By Supreme Court Just Got Really Bad News
This is outrageous!
Here we go again. I’m sure you are familiar with the Colorado Christian cake shop owner who just won a huge case in front of the Supreme Court this last June. Jack Phillips is the Christian baker who made history by prevailing in front of the High Court after he refused to create a custom wedding cake for a gay couple on the basis of religious beliefs. Most of America celebrated with Phillips when he won the case and it provided a glimmer of hope for religious freedom once again here in the United States.
At the time of Phillips case, the Supreme Court admonished the state’s attorney who was standing against the baker for religious intolerance. He allegedly made a number of comments that gave the court pause on First Amendment grounds. The Supreme Court issued a powerful rebuke to the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for its “religious hostility” toward Christian baker Jack Phillips. They were right to think that and it has been proven even more to be true this week as this baker just got really bad news. Phillips just filed a lawsuit in federal court late Tuesday against the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. From what I am seeing he is being set up to be taken down in a different legalistic move… this time it involves gender issues.
Phillips and his attorneys from the Alliance Defending Freedom contend that the Commission has revived its campaign against him following June’s High Court decision, singling Masterpiece Cakeshop out for disparate treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs. It’s like deja vu all over again.
“The state of Colorado is ignoring the message of the U.S. Supreme Court by continuing to single out Jack for punishment and to exhibit hostility toward his religious beliefs,” said Kristen Waggoner, who is an Alliance Defending Freedom attorney that represents Phillips. “Even though Jack serves all customers and simply declines to create custom cakes that express messages or celebrate events in violation of his deeply held beliefs, the government is intent on destroying him — something the Supreme Court has already told it not to do.”
The person allegedly behind all of this is an attorney named Autumn Scardina. She reportedly called Phillips’ shop the day the decision in his favor was rendered and asked him to make a cake celebrating a gender transition. The caller asked that the cake be blue on the outside and pink on the inside. Over several months after that, Phillips received requests for cakes featuring marijuana use, s******y explicit messages, and Satanic symbols. He’s convinced that Scardina was the one who made all of the requests to set him up for legal action.
From PJ Media:
“To forestall a second round of litigation, ADF filed suit against the commission in federal court. Jeremy Tedesco, ADF’s senior counsel and vice president of U.S. Advocacy and Administration, told PJ Media his firm would “preemptively file a lawsuit in federal court to try to stop what the commission is doing.”
“‘We think the circumstances are uniquely aligned to do that,” Tedesco explained.
“Especially since the Supreme Court ruled that the commission had treated Phillips unfairly on the basis of his religion, thus violating his right to free exercise, this follow-up round seems particularly noxious. “It seems like another round of targeting him and putting him through this very difficult process simply because he wants to be faithful in his business in what he creates through his art,” Tedesco said.
“The commission could have decided not to pursue this second case against Phillips. The ADF lawyer explained that, when a Colorado citizen thinks he or she has been discriminated against, they file a complaint with the Civil Rights Division, which then conducts an investigation and determines probable cause.
“When Autumn Scardina filed this complaint, Tedesco would have expected the civil rights commission to reject it. “After Masterpiece came down from the Supreme Court, we expected Colorado to take that into account and realize that it was a bad decision to keep targeting Jack for his religious convictions,” the lawyer explained. “Instead, they found probable cause.”
“‘He’s going to be fully investigated again, there will be hearings from an administrative law judge,” Tedesco said. “It’s restarting the entire scenario.”
“‘It’s appalling,” the lawyer declared. “It’s unconscionable that they would go after him again right on the heels of losing a case because they were openly hostile to his religious beliefs.'”
Scardina has now filed a complaint with the civil rights commission. She is alleging discrimination on the basis of gender identity. The complaint was held aside while the Supreme Court ruled in Phillips’ other case. Just three weeks after Phillips won his case, the commission issued a probable cause determination, finding there was sufficient evidence to support Scardina’s claim of discrimination. This sure looks as though it was all planned out this way. “Colorado has renewed its war against him by embarking on another attempt to prosecute him, in direct conflict with the Supreme Court’s ruling in his favor,” Phillips’ lawsuit states. “This lawsuit is necessary to stop Colorado’s continuing persecution of Phillips.”
The freedom of religion is sacrosanct in this nation as a First Amendment right. Weaponizing lawfare to take it apart is not only unconstitutional but unconscionable. I sincerely hope that Phillips prevails once more and that a more solid ruling by the Supreme Court puts an end to this form of religious bigotry.
Judge Who Let Compound Muslims Walk Free Before Trial Exposed For What Else She Did
She supported Obama of course!
The New Mexico judge who on Monday set a ridiculous $20,000 bail for five defendants arrested at a remote New Mexico compound where authorities say children were being trained to conduct school shootings seems to have a history of issuing low bail to violent offenders, especially when it comes to crimes against children.
Judge Sarah Backus (let’s remember the name), who is an elected Democrat is the judge who ordered the two men and three women to wear ankle monitors, have weekly contact with their attorneys and not consume alcohol or own firearms while on bail, after paying the 20k. And what’s possibly the worst part of all this is she actually said that although she was concerned by the “troubling facts” in this case, prosecutors failed to make the case for any specific threats to the community. What????
Here is more on this case via NBC News:
“A 3-year-old boy died — allegedly during a religious ritual. Children said they were being trained to commit mass shootings. A large weapons cache was found, with practice targets.
On Monday, prosecutors detailed horrifying allegations against five adults who were found with 11 starving children in a makeshift compound in Taos County, New Mexico — but the judge said they weren’t backed by enough evidence to keep the defendants behind bars as they await their trial.
“The state alleges that there was a big plan afoot,” state District Judge Sarah Backus said in court. “But the state hasn’t shown to my satisfaction, in clear and convincing evidence, what that plan was.”
The decision stunned many, and prompted threats against Backus. But experts say the move is the result of a series of recent changes to how the state treats defendants before their trials, with “clear and convincing evidence” of being a danger to the community a legal requirement for pre-trial detention with no bail.
“These people have been charged. They have not been convicted,” said Leo Romero, a law professor emeritus at the University of New Mexico and the chairman of a committee that made recommendations on reforming cash bail in the state, which were adopted by the state Supreme Court in 2017.
“So you’re balancing individual rights versus safety of the community, and the judge is weighing that when she is determining the evidence presented by the prosecutor,” he said.
New Mexico is part of a wave of a states that, in recent years, have re-examined how they handle bail and pretrial detention.
In 2014, the state Supreme Court, in New Mexico vs. Walter Ernest Brown, deemed that even if someone is charged with a serious offense, a judge has to make an individual determination on whether to detain the defendant before trial.
“Just because someone is charged with first-degree m****r or first-degree sexual assault, that by itself is insufficient,” Romero said. “The court’s got to consider other evidence of whether the person might be a danger or a flight risk, such as the nature and circumstances, which is different than the charge itself.”
Authorities have “no excuse,” said Jason Badger, who reported seeing missing boy months ago.
And in 2016, an overwhelming number of voters agreed to a constitutional amendment that moved the state away from the traditional money-based bail system to an evidence-of-risk-based system of release and detention, in an effort to bring more fairness. The new system took effect last year.
Backus would not comment on the case because it is still pending. Barry Massey, a spokesman for the New Mexico Administrative Office of the Courts, said that “what she said in court yesterday is as much explanation for her decisions as she can provide.”
“Prosecutors have to file a motion, and then they have to prove by clear and convincing evidence that no other conditions of release will reasonably protect the public’s safety,” he said. “What the judge said yesterday is that they didn’t meet that burden.”
While Backus agreed to release the defendants from jail to house arrest, she required them to wear GPS ankle monitors and to check in weekly with their attorneys, plus cooperate with the New Mexico Children Youth and Families Division.
The decision not to hold the defendants spurred a backlash on social media, with some calling for Backus to resign. The New Mexico Administrative Office of the Courts said the judge had also received threatening phone calls and emails.
State Rep. Bill Rehm, R-Albuquerque, a former law enforcement officer, said he felt Backus had not been tough enough.
“There’s the remains of a young child found here,” he said. “Someone should be charged with some kind of homicide or m****r. Whoever did that clearly is a violent person, and so they should be detained.”
Bail was set at $20,000 for each defendant, but Backus said she would allow the defendants to walk out on what’s called a signature bond — in which case they don’t have to post any cash.
The case has yet another twist: While the five were released to house arrest, because they were living on a makeshift compound on someone else’s property, they don’t technically have a house to go to.
Massey said that had been solved by offers from residents in Taos County to let them stay with them.
Marie Legrand Miller, a public defender for one of the defendants, Hujrah Wahhaj, confirmed her client had received such offers, but would not say from whom, other than to say the residents didn’t have any criminal problems and were in good standing.
“My client would like to obviously get out of jail and she has no desire to go back to the compound property,” Legrand Miller said. “The judge has ordered that they not return there, and she has no desire to return there.”
Fox News has reported that this isn’t the first time judge Backus has pulled a stunt like this. Just last month, she set a $10,000 bond for 24-year-old Rafael Orozco from Taos who was accused of beating his girlfriend, his newborn child and even a healthcare worker at Holy Cross Hospital in September 2016. He then prompted a lockdown at Holy Cross Hospital after allegedly attacking those 3 individuals.
Police later confirmed that Orozco prompted the lockdown at the hospital after punching his girlfriend as she breastfed their newborn in front of a male doctor, grabbing the mother by the throat and slapping the baby. Orozco then fled the hospital and was arrested in Rio Arriba County a few months later.
During his time in prison, Orozco was accused of other crimes, including obtaining Suboxone, an opioid medication, and pulling a fire alarm. A year later, he and his brother, Cristian Orozco, were charged with assaulting and threatening a guard. In September, Backus approved an order to incarcerate Orozco at the Lea County Correctional Facility until his trial.
Orozco’s defense attorney recently filed a motion arguing for his release and last month, Backus ruled in his favor.
Of course, with a little research, we here at RWN found that Judge Backus apparently gave money to Barack Obama for his 2008 campaign for president.
