In other, better days, America celebrated this hallowed day with parties, speeches and fireworks honoring the great thinkers, writers and patriots who worked together to frame our Declaration of Independence from the insufferable tyranny of England’s King George. These men [yes, MEN, there were no women meeting about or signing this great document. While I have no doubt that their influence behind the scenes was notable, the fact remains that they were not signers] spent countless hours thinking, talking and taking action which could and subsequently did endanger their very lives. And yet–they persevered from Lexington and Concord to Valley Forge to Saratoga to forge a new nation which recognized rights not doled out to them by a monarch, but instead, listed rights endowed by their Creator–an authority far beyond that of mere power grabbing mortals. The 4th of July has ever been a day of patriotism renewed, honor and celebration of what we have here in this Republic and through all the beer, fireworks and grilled meat of summer celebration, the reason for honoring this day has never been lost.
Today, July 4, 2010, we have a regime that not only threatens the American principles and way of life, but violates, on a daily basis, nearly every principle of our Declaration, Constitution and Bill of Rights [First 10 Amendments].
I am broken hearted, as I have been for more than two years now, as I watched our nation slowly sinking into a fascist state, power seized by inept, angry little miscreants with a bone to pick and drunk with their own illusions.

Dear NaturalNews readers,
It seems downright spooky that on the weekend when the USA is about to celebrate Independence Day — the July 4th holiday that commemorates freedom from tyranny — we are bringing you a disturbing report on how the U.S. Coast Guard, under the direction of the Obama administration, has suspended the First Amendment in the Gulf of Mexico.
Free Speech is now illegal on the beaches of the Gulf Coast. Any reporter, photographer or blogger caught within 65 feet of an oil spill boom, vessel or cleanup operation will be arrested, fined as much as $40,000 and prosecuted with a Class F felony crime by the U.S. government.
I’m not making this up. This is your “Independence Day” gift from the Obama administration, which once promised “transparency” in Gulf cleanup operations.
Read my complete story on this Orwellian censorship by the U.S. government:
Sadly, this is only one of a multitude of corrupt, treasonous offenses perpetrated by the court jesters in power. The exposure of DOJ’s refusal to prosecute Black Panthers for voter intimidation in November of 2008 by former DOJ employee Adams, refusal to enforce its own immigration laws and keep our borders safe, collusion between BP, BOZO, Goldman Sachs, prosecution of our troops for bravely doing their duty in combat zones…the list goes on and on, with way too many to name here, and new offenses mounting daily…continue to contribute to the outrage felt by the American people, despite desperate, unsubtle attempts by main stream media to cover it all up and fool us into thinking all is well.
The pot continues to boil and soon, I fear it shall erupt as it did over two centuries ago. As Jeffesrson said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants..”
Let us hope and pray there there is not too much of it.
May God Bless America and her People in these tragic times, keep them safe and restore honor and law to this great nation.
