Independence Day 2020

Matt In West Virginia


"The efforts of today's globalists (from many different places upon this earth) are aimed at taking America down from within. It seems that literally 2% of the people have all of the voice while the 98% are silent. That is the result of globalist control of our national media in the United States. So if you're just flipping on your televisions, your laptop or phone and are not paying much attention to where you gather your facts, you will be told a great many lies and they will tell you those lies often enough that you will begin to believe them until you reach a point that you're just someone sitting and screaming at your tv. They will get you hook, line and sinker.

The globalists right now, this year in 2020, are doing their very best to re-write American and select world history. Somehow, some way, we must become one of the world's worst tyrants, BE one of the world's worst tyrants, so that there is justification to bring our foundations down before a dumbed down public with an intentionally damaged attention span. The globalists have those gifted to write busy at the task of warping and altering history to better suit their own hidden agendas. But before that can be effective, they must 1st erase and replace the history we do have. They haven't specifically got around to Independence Day yet. But it's coming. Who knows. They may even already have a plan to disrupt our celebrations THIS year with their domestic political street-terrorist/mercenaries.

But the silent 98% will not forget. Not this year. Not any year I'm still drawing breath." ~ Matt In WV

The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues. The Fourth of July 2020 is on Saturday, July 4, 2020.

A History of Independence Day

When the initial battles in the Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, few colonists desired complete independence from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radical.


By the middle of the following year, however, many more colonists had come to favor independence, thanks to growing hostility against Britain and the spread of revolutionary sentiments such as those expressed in the bestselling pamphlet “Common Sense,” published by Thomas Paine in early 1776.


On June 7, when the Continental Congress met at the Pennsylvania State House (later Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, the Virginia delegate Richard Henry Lee introduced a motion calling for the colonies’ independence.


Amid heated debate, Congress postponed the vote on Lee’s resolution, but appointed a five-man committee—including Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, John Adams of Massachusetts, Roger Sherman of Connecticut, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Robert R. Livingston of New York—to draft a formal statement justifying the break with Great Britain.



Did you know? John Adams believed that July 2nd was the correct date on which to celebrate the birth of American independence, and would reportedly turn down invitations to appear at July 4th events in protest.
Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4, 1826—the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.


On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of Lee’s resolution for independence in a near-unanimous vote (the New York delegation abstained, but later voted affirmatively). On that day, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail that July 2 “will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival” and that the celebration should include “Pomp and Parade…Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other.”


On July 4th, the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence, which had been written largely by Jefferson. Though the vote for actual independence took place on July 2nd, from then on the 4th became the day that was celebrated as the birth of American independence.

Early Fourth of July Celebrations

In the pre-Revolutionary years, colonists had held annual celebrations of the king’s birthday, which traditionally included the ringing of bells, bonfires, processions and speechmaking. By contrast, during the summer of 1776 some colonists celebrated the birth of independence by holding mock funerals for King George III as a way of symbolizing the end of the monarchy’s hold on America and the triumph of liberty.


Festivities including concerts, bonfires, parades and the firing of cannons and muskets usually accompanied the first public readings of the Declaration of Independence, beginning immediately after its adoption. Philadelphia held the first annual commemoration of independence on July 4, 1777, while Congress was still occupied with the ongoing war.


George Washington issued double rations of rum to all his soldiers to mark the anniversary of independence in 1778, and in 1781, several months before the key American victory at the Battle of Yorktown, Massachusetts became the first state to make July 4th an official state holiday.


After the Revolutionary War, Americans continued to commemorate Independence Day every year, in celebrations that allowed the new nation’s emerging political leaders to address citizens and create a feeling of unity. By the last decade of the 18th century, the two major political parties—the Federalist Party and Democratic-Republicans—that had arisen began holding separate Fourth of July celebrations in many large cities.

Fourth of July Fireworks

The first fireworks were used as early as 200 BC. The tradition of setting off fireworks on the 4 of July began in Philadelphia on July 4, 1777, during the first organized celebration of Independence Day. Ship’s cannon fired a 13-gun salute in honor of the 13 colonies. The Pennsylvania Evening Post reported: “at night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks (which began and concluded with thirteen rockets) on the Commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated.” That same night, the Sons of Liberty set off fireworks over Boston Common.


Fourth of July Becomes a Federal Holiday


The tradition of patriotic celebration became even more widespread after the War of 1812, in which the United States again faced Great Britain. In 1870, the U.S. Congress made July 4th a federal holiday; in 1941, the provision was expanded to grant a paid holiday to all federal employees.


Over the years, the political importance of the holiday would decline, but Independence Day remained an important national holiday and a symbol of patriotism.


Falling in mid-summer, the Fourth of July has since the late 19th century become a major focus of leisure activities and a common occasion for family get-togethers, often involving fireworks and outdoor barbecues. The most common symbol of the holiday is the American flag, and a common musical accompaniment is “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the national anthem of the United States.

YOUR RIGHT ON ALL ACCOUNTS BROTHER and remember the Boston Tea party which was destruction of others property and  like you said they were considered radicals just like the far left. now do not get me wrong i do not condone the violent actions from either side, which is my only concern and both far left and right seem to be quick to come to blows over some simple issues that could be solved peacefully .  I propose to you that you view all you can of what is deemed  leftists propaganda and research for yourself so you might be more apathetic to the other sides causes for grievance they make some salient points as do conservatives or their issues. Which i am all about . i just feel the rift has groan to wide and if we do come to a common ground then their will be blood shed needlessly and no one will be able to put this nation back together again. most of these issues are  petty when viewed from the conservative side. i mean when is the last time you went any of the statues or monuments the left is wanting to take down and paid your respects in awe and reverence of them, and its just a statue it is not history, especially  when like 95% were erected like 100 years after the civil war. i bet trump has never even  been to any of the monuments he claims to protect and if one of them stood in the way of one of his beloved hotels , damn straight he is taking it down..he's about the votes and the bottom line of his bank account look how quickly he caves on masks and DACA when the chips are down (btw masks are good , if you are a carrier of covid  and do not know it you could save someones mother,father or child's  life ,plus how awesome is it to walk around like a cowboy from the old west, i love  Texas  F'n bandannas and open carry, YEEHAW!)..like Lincoln said "if keeping the union together meant to keep slavery then i would keep slavery" . so some time concessions need  to be made. both sides compromise a little to gain a common ground to keep the union. oh one last thing about then economy and lock downs , why cant the  1% that holds 95% of the wealth in this nation carry the rest of us till this shit gets sorted, talking old king money , chase Manhattans JP Morgans rockefellers. Further more you know the federal reserve ,which is about as federal as federal express , demanded every American turn in their gold. made it illegal for you to poses it and basically stole the gold from your ancestors,,also the rockefeller and jp morgans sold America out from under us to china. you know why  we have no manufacturing here ask the rockefellers and YET nobody is up in arms about that shit..how about the  ratification of the irs which was suposed to have been done like  hundred years ago and is essentially an illegal organization and nobody cares about that..yet people want to kill over a fucking statue. and blacks have a right to be pissed , hell im white and i am pissed because i was lied to and told to believe theses men were great and above reproach,like maybe10% even they were human with human flaws and like 90% were quite the bastard.  Reverse the  roles you'd be pissed to if every day  a reminder of your ancestors oppression was shoved down your throat, throw racism out the window, just opening your wallet and seeing a twenty, with Jackson a notorious slave master and ruthlessly violent to his slaves and even the father of our country the man who wrote the constitution and the line "all men created equal under god" even Thomas Jefferson had his slaves whipped regularly for no reason to keep them inline . and his illegitimate children of color  to this day are proud to call him their great great great great grandfather. Only pure evil is intolerant  and as it says this is one nation under god ,not evil.
