Donald Trump Flys Off the Handle in July Fourth Speech, Talmbout Airports During Revolutionary War

Donald Trump Flys Off the Handle in July Fourth Speech, Talmbout Airports During Revolutionary War

Donald Trump’s decision to insert himself in Independence Day celebrations in the nation’s capital resulted in a tale of two Fourths — and an erroneous, anachronistic reference to airports being present during the time of the Revolutionary War.

During what he hyped as an extravagant “Salute to America” July Fourth celebration, complete with military tanks and airplane flyovers, Trump, as rain...

#BoycottTrump4thOfJuly Trends 1 Day Before Trump’s Yuuuge Plans to Hijack the National Holiday

U.S. presidents traditionally have been hands-off when it comes to the Fourth of July so as to avoid politicizing commemorations of the nation’s birth. But not Donald Trump, whose decision to insert himself in Washington, D.C.’s annual celebration with a speech at the Lincoln Memorial and an elaborate display of military might had the hashtag #BoycottTrump4thOfJuly trending Wednesday.

Pay Me What You Owe Me: DC to Trump on $7 Million Unpaid Inauguration Bill Ahead of Planned July 4th Bash

Donald Trump is planning what he almost assuredly believes will be a yuuuge Fourth of July rally speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

But as D.C. leaders brace for what could be a massive security headache with the leader of the free world inserting himself in the middle of one of the nation’s largest July Fourth celebrations, the city still is waiting on more than $7...

Black Teens Cuffed for Selling Water on National Mall 

They can’t find the people hanging nooses all over federal grounds, but the U.S. Park Police are on it when it comes to illegal water-selling.

A photo showing three African-American teens being handcuffed on the National Mall for selling water in extreme heat has sparked outrage, more proof that black teens are over-policed and shown exactly which spaces they are welcome in.

Another Noose Found in the DC Area, This Time at a Construction Site

Well, another noose turned up in Washington, D.C., this time, police say, at a house under construction in the southeast part of the city. This will make at least the fifth time that this hateful symbol of violence has appeared around the nation’s capital recently.

According to CNN, officers went to the construction site Thursday morning and “discovered a rope, tied in a noose, displayed by...

Teens Handcuffed for Selling Water on National Mall Get Job Offers

A little compassion goes a long way, and when Raymond Bell, the founder and administrator of the HOPE Project, saw that two young teens were handcuffed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for selling water without a permit, he saw two hardworking young people that he wanted to help.

Where the Hell Are the Police? Another Noose Found on National Mall

Where the Hell Are the Police? Another Noose Found on National Mall

Surely, with all of the camera surveillance as well as several branches of police (federal, local, military, etc.) patrolling one of the most tourist-laden places in these United States, one would think that there would be an arrest or some movement in this noose-hanging frenzy going on all over the National Mall.

However, these noose-placing cretins have been able to move about and do their...

A Historic Museum Featuring #APeoplesJourney Opens on the National Mall

Saturday morning marked a monumental day for America, a day that many believed would never come: the opening day of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the 19th museum of the Smithsonian Institution.

NMAAHC was established by an act of Congress in 2003 under the authorization of President George W. Bush. But that, of course, was not where the museum’s journey began....
