      What a stupid thing to say. You don’t deploy just 4 tanks, you usually deploy dozens or hundreds, so technically you’re right. Do you want a gold star?

      @Lynda Mackrous 10 counts of obstruction of justice:

      1. Trump asking James Comey to let Michael Flynn go

      2. Trump’s reaction to the Russia investigation

      3. The firing of James Comey

      4. Mueller’s appointment and efforts to oust him

      5. Efforts to curtail the Russia investigation

      6. Attempts to stop the public from seeing the evidence

      7. Trump trying to get Jeff Sessions to take back control of the investigation

      8. Trump telling Don McGahn to deny that the president had wanted the special counsel removed

      9. Trump’s team asking Flynn for a “heads up” on information and commending Paul Manafort for not “flipping”

      10. The president’s changing behavior toward Michael Cohen

      @ihave35cents Who was POTUS in 2016?

    • Good Point, and I read that a lot of equipment was left behind in Iraq because it was too expensive to load it onto planes and fly it out.

  2. The military is not a circus sir.

    • @Max S. why?

    • With all the never ending wars we are involved in, and seeing as how the dems and mainstream media want more wars with Syria, Iran, Russia, and North Korea as well, it apparently is something of a circus…. Sir.

      @John D
      It’s Trumpo the Klown’s attempt to emulate that f*cking little butterball totalitarian who is the “leader” of North Korea. They are best buds in their fascism.

    • @Antaeus663 The war in the middle east never ending you can thank obama for that. The war with iran is being pushed by people trump has said will probably get removed or something like that not to informed on that front but from what I can tell its mostly the democrats create problems and then blame it on trump.

    If you’d like to honor the troops, perhaps take care of the veterans.

    • Just try going to the VA medical clinic without an appt and wait for days to see a doctor. I suggested they assign a doctor to see walk-ins and the VA told me we are waiting for additional funds.

      Can’t do it, to busy taking care of illegal immigrants the Socialist Democrats refuse to acknowledge. The vets only wish the Socialist cared as much about them as they do the illegals, instead, they live, defecate, & urinate on the streets, the Socialist refuse to help the president solve both problems, but hey, they want those illegal votes, so “to hell with the vets”.

    • Very true sad to see this. We vets were promised the gov would take care of us when we joined up.

    • @mct _ Just to clarify the abrams was most definitely not in WW2, it was produced/developed in the late ’70s early ’80s. Don’t want to sound rude but just saying.

      Yeah, your boy obama raised it 9 trillion from 10 trillion to 19 trillion while in office, to about where it is now. 👏👏👏

  5. America, What a country. Tens of thousands cross everyday to be in our ‘concentration camps’.

    • Bryon Kidder | July 4, 2019 at 10:32 AM | Reply

      @Weaboo Chan as a American grandchild of someone that saw Hitler with her own eyes…
      Calling them “Concentration Camps” isn’t that far off base. Do a little research and tell me why it’s “illegal” to search for a better place to raise your children?

    • @Bryon Kidder It’s not a concentration camp mainly because they could’ve stayed where they lived and besides it’s not our problem if they have to live in bad conditions blame their government not the citizens of another country , and it is illegal and that can not be denied , the LAW forbids it they are criminals they are illegal , someone that robbed out of need and someone that robbed someone out of fun are the same in the eyes of the law , criminals , robbers same sentence , same consequences , i would rather have YOU explain to me why it isn’t illegal

    • @Bryon Kidder ah and btw , i’ll tell you something granchild of someone that saw hitler , your ancestors are not the only onces that suffered through the labor camps , it is not a concentration camp because they are not getting killed in mass by the guards , they are not being tortured they are not being forced to work until their hands bleed and their knees dislocate , the conditions ARE VERY DIFFERENT , how dare you even compare them , concentration camps were a horror , the nazis rounded up jews just because they were jews and forced them to work until they died and if that wasn’t going to kill them the diseases would and if nothing else worked the guards would probably beat them to death or gas them
      YOU are the one that should do research on the matter

    • Bryon Kidder | July 4, 2019 at 11:01 AM | Reply

      @Weaboo Chan there wasn’t “mass killing” in the beginning, number one…lmao
      And sooo much bullshit can be said…..
      But just look at what you have chose to stand for!
      “Illegal” to “criminal” bullshit! Those people didn’t hurt you or your property, yet, you cry as if….lmfaoupos
      Some people don’t have the capability to empathize with the struggles of human existence, I get it…
      But know one thing, YOU are no better than the PEOPLE that are being held in cages in the United States today! The only “crime” they committed was to try to find a better place to raise their families.
      God help you on your Judgment Day! POS

    The very BESTthing we could do, other than wearing the awesome John McCain T-shirt, is NOT attend his sad little wanna be dictator me-me-me party. No sane person is “giving him the benefit of the doubt” ! He WILL make it a re-election rally he is incapable of NOT making everything about HIM. The “sad” “little” “low IQ person”

      matias johnston no. The US Capital Establishment was grooming trump for years before he was literally assigned his office seat.

      Only 20% of America is conservative and yet the political races are neck and neck?

      Both Clintons handed the potus to the gop at different times…

      This is way bigger than trump…

      @john carioscia The only ONES who let the rational public down are the tRump voters who actually thought he gave a rats *ss about them (you). Worse…they thought he was COMPETENT. I’ve met grade school children with higher IQ’s and who know how to act appropriate if not ADULT

    Is this parade for the 20+ trillion dollar debt and growing???

  12. How will people be able to see the stealth aircraft with them being “invisible” 😂

    • @Geddy Schacher It’s sad when Trump supporters start doing like Trump and start belittling people through name calling to defend Trump. I sincerely didn’t know you were joking. I thought you were taking my mention of that Trump baby incorrectly. I was not saying it was right for them to do. I was just saying this celebration might not go right due to the split actions of people. And please if at all possible. Can you not be disrespectful to me. I think we should be able to talk reasonably. If you are Trump supporter ok! I voted for him, but disappointed, but that’s ok! Too.

    • I hope you can understand. This is supposed to be celebration. I hope Trump doesn’t make it political and everything goes good.

      @M Dugger You voted for him….

      Yet you’re now disappointed with him…

      Makes no sense….

      Was it just a vote against Hillary ?…

      If it was that, I could understand…

      Otherwise, what exalted notion or expectation did you have, that has been unrewarded ?….

    • ME the fact you got 35 thumbs up to this totally illogical comment shows that lefties think out of the stupid part of their brain.

    • so do the FRENCH.. They do fly overs at sporting events. They give 21 GUN SALUTES. Like where you been Digger?

    all going on with a draft-dodging president, people of the future will not believe what an embarrassing time it was when the twitter-in-chief was POTUS and America become the joke of the world

    • @Dennis Menace Nah, he’s being sarcastic. Probably just as frustrated as the rest of us by El Presidente!

    • @Dennis Menace America is a joke to the world because we dont bow down to your agenda XD

      Here’s for your egoistic claims snowflakes.

      1988, Oprah:
      Back then, Trump was critical of Japan, and this criticism echoes the way he talks today about NATO. He told Oprah Winfrey:

      “I’d make our allies pay their fair share.”

      He took a hard line with the Middle East, saying:

      “Kuwait, they live like kings. The poorest person in Kuwait, they live like kings. And yet they’re not paying. We make it possible for them to sell their oil. Why aren’t they paying us 25 percent of what they’re making? It’s a joke.”

      Asked if he’d run for president, Trump said:

      “I just probably wouldn’t do it, Oprah. I probably wouldn’t, but I do get tired of seeing what’s happening with this country, and if it got so bad, I would never want to rule it out totally, because I really am tired of seeing what’s happening with this country, how we’re really making other people live like kings, and we’re not.”

      More about a presidential run and winning. He even uses his signature “believe me:”

      “I think I’d win. I tell you what, I wouldn’t go in to lose. I’ve never gone in to lose in my life. And if I did decide to do it, I think I would be inclined — I would say, I would have a hell of a chance of winning, because I think people — I don’t know how your audience feels, but I think people are tired of seeing the United States ripped off. And I can’t promise you everything, but I can tell you one thing, this country would make one hell of a lot of money from those people that for 25 years have taken advantage. It wouldn’t be the way it’s been, believe me.”

    This should never have been a reason for argument. If The President can’t remind the citizens of national achievements, without being accused of narcissism, then the nation will implode within one generation.

    Not all people don’t like President Trump do and did.

    Some people may agree with CNN value.

    But we still have some Americans love love ❤️ love 💕 what President Trump have done for Uniform servicemen.

  18. Independence day celebrated in China, Russia and North Korean style with show of military hardware. Happy Independence day ! Chairman Trump.

  19. Seeing all of this military stuff makes me proud to be a vet, we have a strong country now with Trump. I often think about the cost of it all but in today’s world it’s necessary.

  20. ALERT…..ALERT…
    Thanks tank derailed and ran over CNN crews. Correction…..just Acosta
