A 100-year-old veteran gave an emotional interview before Independence Day. He broke down and cried about the state of America.

"People don’t realize what they have," Dekel said, showing his emotions. "The things we did and the things we fought for and the boys that died for it, it’s all gone down the drain."

"We haven’t got the country we had when I was raised, not at all," he said, being brought to tears. "Nobody will have the fun I had. Nobody will have the opportunity I had. It’s just not the same and that’s not what our boys, that’s not what they died for."


President Trump's Inspiring July 4th 2020 Speech At Mount Rushmore:

Partial transcript from the White House:

We gather tonight to herald the most important day in the history of nations: July 4th, 1776. At those words, every American heart should swell with pride. Every American family should cheer with delight. And every American patriot should be filled with joy, because each of you lives in the most magnificent country in the history of the world, and it will soon be greater than ever before. (Applause.)

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. (Applause.)

It was all made possible by the courage of 56 patriots who gathered in Philadelphia 244 years ago and signed the Declaration of Independence. (Applause.) 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 [to] us by our Creator in Heaven. And that which God has given us, we will allow no one, ever, to take away — ever. (Applause.)

Seventeen seventy-six represented the culmination of thousands of years of western civilization and the triumph not only of spirit, but of wisdom, philosophy, and reason.

And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled, they bled to secure.

This Was A Test, It Was Only A Test, by Steve Rossiter, Canada Free Press, 30 June 2022:

In the last 16 years America has had two tests concerning the form of government We the People wish to have for the United States of America. The first test started on January 20, 2009. The Marxist Democrat Party and their minions took advantage of the fact that racism was over in America and combined it with White guilt to elect the first Black American and Marxist President.... This was a young Black man who was nurtured through college by radical Marxists and set up in Chicago as a Marxist community organizer...

Obama’s Marxist puppet masters did a wonderful job of staying hidden behind the curtain for his two terms. America got its first taste of Marxism and some significant movement left for how America was governed. At this point, most Americans did not even realize how Marxism was influencing the operation of the U.S. government....

America didn’t like what the first Marxist President did to America, particularly when Obama took the position that America’s best times were behind her. At the time Americans hadn’t yet made the connection to Marxism that we recognize today, but they didn’t like the results of the Obama years...

In 2016, Donald Trump took America by storm. His upbeat vision of what America could be was exactly opposite of the tripe Obama and Hillary were preaching. Donald Trump promised to make America great again, and he did exactly that...

Then the Marxist Democrat political machine stole the 2020 Presidential election. To quote President Biden;  “We’re in a situation where we have put together, and you guys did it for President Obama’s administration before this, we have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”...

For the last 18 months we have been living the second test of gross Marxism in America.... The post presidency Pelosi/Schumer impeachment of President Trump and the soviet style proceedings of Pelosi’s January 6 Select Committee are so blatantly communist and political in nature that only the most committed Marxists and their useful idiots are taking it seriously. In addition, Boss Biden has already given us a heads up about the next planned pandemic....
