Happy Fourth to All!

[Editor’s note:  We first published this two years ago.  It’s an oldie but a goodie.  So rather than listen to some confusing encyclical from a foreign bishop who doesn’t know the first thing about America, please take the time to listen to this rendition of “God Bless America.”  Have a happy Fourth, eat some burgers and dogs and be careful with the fireworks! This poignant acoustic rendition is courtesy of Chris Economou, a good friend, cousin singer-songwriter and all-around good guy.] 

The song “God Bless America” is –for millions–he unofficial national anthem of the United States. To my mind, it tugs particularly on the heartstrings of those who are descended from the waves of immigrants who descended upon these shores after 1880. No, we are not the founding stock, but we’re so bloody grateful for this country that words fail to describe our appreciation. But not this song. This song says what we feel in spades. And then some.

I remember reading a reminiscence from someone who knew he-man entertainers like Frank Sinatra, Don Rickles and John Wayne. This person said that one time he saw Old Blue Eyes bow his head when he heard this song play on the radio and pretend that he was plucking “something” from his eye. Because back then, grown men didn’t cry in public. But Frankie, and Don and John and Robert Mitchum and Tyrone Power and tens of thousands of other he-men high and low likewise found themselves weeping whenever they heard it.

Because that’s what America meant to these sons and grandsons of immigrants.

God bless America! Because we’re still not done. It ain’t over yet. I for one, intend to go down fighting. I suspect that there are several millions of others out there who feel the same way.

    Thanks G&G??,
    & love ? the Early Americana paintings — over time I’ve collected plenty of antiques, dolls, quilts of civil war period… there’s just something about that era —
    & to see what America has devolved into is like a mourning …

      Thanks George – “you great American”??if only majority of Blacks spoke out with such wisdom as Terry Crews + Candace Owens.
      We are all disgusted to hear BLM is allowed to be painted outside Trump Tower . Petition is going around to kick out Mayor Deblasio.
      I have a question: can our President Trump get rid of this disrespectful filth?

      • George Michalopulos says

        No, the rot is too pervasive and deep in American culture. It started with my generation unfortunately back in the 60s and has only gotten progressively worse.

        In retrospect, I can see that we lost when we lost control of the language. In order to be WASP/nice to people, we started using words like “spokesperson” instead of “spokesman” and then “gay” instead of “sodomite”. Then we had “gay marriage” and “pro-choice” instead of “pro-abortion”.

        This surrender on the language began in earnest in the late 70s and accelerated up until recently. The consequences of all of this is the absolutely disgusting moral rot that we see all around us. The logical (albeit regrettable) conclusion is making a low-life criminal, pornographer and drug addict like George Floyd into the second coming of Gandhi.

        The only hope is the complete collapse of our society into rival tribes, each with its own militia. Or repentance. Dialogue is impossible so therefore “I will put my trust in God and keep my powder dry”. The Left feels so emboldened that they can run down the streets of America in their underwear with their hair on fire yelling at the top of their lungs how much they hate God, the Church, America, the West, their parents and everything else that is good, decent and just.

        It’s sad really. As a Christian, I try to love every human being because we are all created in the image and likeness of God. Unfortunately, because the Left has degenerated to the status of rabid dogs, like rabid dogs, they have to be put down.

        • One should not underestimate the ability of Brandon to lead the Democrap party down the toilet. He is both cursed and foolish. So long as the Democratic Party retains its present leadership and ideological policies, it will be ever increasingly rendered a pariah. The midterms will be monumental.

          Can Trump do it? No. Though he leads an increasingly hard right movement, he is too tame himself. Yet, can the movement do it? Six to five and you pick em. There is no cure for America’s racial melange and its multikulti instability. That may be a fatal flaw. Other challenges like feminism and LGBT might be overcome but race will haunt us indefinitely. That alone is a reason to emigrate. Had America chosen the Liberia solution, the country would be a very different place.

          Yet if the Democratic Party becomes the black party and regional rather than national, you may see some serious attempt at an American rebound under Trump and his successors. He’s doing precisely the right thing by “radicalizing” the Republican Party and setting it up for electoral dominance. If his followers have the will to do the dirty work for which he lacks the stomach, there may be hope.

    George , actually NO you don’t have to love bad people who act like rabid dogs + burn down the town.

    We need to remember Jesus says something to effect dust your feet off if your not well received…
    I believe in being warriors for Truth — knowing when to speak up + when to be silent… not be doormats as we’re witnessing to tolerant self hating Whites.
    I heard today there were protesters against BLM in VA. Good for them!

  4. George Michalopulos says

    Sometimes events spin so out-of-control of what the Globalists want that our anti-Globalist narrative  is becoming inevitable:


    In other words, the Blue model is being hollowed out as we speak, even though you wouldn’t know it from watching the Corporate Media which is caterwauling otherwise (Orange Man Bad!) 24/7.

  5. Μωλον Λαβε says

    I see the pieces moving into place, with greater purpose. I see God’s hand at work.
    We are entering the twilight of what is, the despair, the fear, the want, the degradation, the anathema. We have a way to go before the dawn. God’s hand is at work, HE has heard our prayers and lamentations. His armies of angels are mobilized. Do not fear the dark, of those who are evil incarnate because a new day will dawn, and the bones of evil will be crushed into dust. The Lord has matters in hand and his WILL, will be done !

    My love and prayers to all of you.

  6. Happy 4th of July everyone.

    This is pathetic on more levels than I can count. I wonder how many democrats are going to cry “How are we going to pay for this tax cut?”

    W B Yeats:
    “Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed,
    and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is lost
    The best lack all conviction,
    while the worst are filled with passionate intensity.”

      This shocked me and then broke my heart.

      • It is terrible indeed, Gail.
        But Paul Joseph Watson is right to ask:
        “You think maybe he’s got a point?”
