Presidential Message on the 244th Anniversary of the Adoption of the Declaration of Independence

Washington, DC...On this day in 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the United States Declaration of Independence in what is now known as Independence Hall in Philadelphia. In taking this historic step, the Congress proclaimed “these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States.” Today, we celebrate our Nation’s independence and the vision of our Founding Fathers revealed to the world on that fateful day, as well as the countless patriots who continue to ensure that the flames of freedom are never extinguished.




The enduring commitment to the ideals of liberty and justice that have come to define our American spirit stem from our Nation’s founding. In declaring that our rights to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” should be safeguarded for posterity and that “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” our Founding Fathers launched the American experiment that espoused freedom and democracy over tyranny and monarchy. Two hundred and forty-four years later, the principles grounded in the Declaration of Independence continue to guide our Nation forward and maintain its standing as a beacon of liberty, prosperity, and opportunity for all.

Over the past months, the American spirit has undoubtedly been tested by many challenges. Yet, it is in the face of adversity that our country has had some of our proudest moments of triumph. Today, especially, we are reminded of the extraordinary feats that our Nation has accomplished since its founding nearly 250 years ago. Together, we must ensure that we live up to the ideals of our Declaration of Independence and do all that we can to protect and preserve the freedoms that make our country the greatest in the world.

The First Lady and I wish each and every American a happy and blessed Fourth of July and proudly join you in celebrating our great Nation. May God bless the United States of America.

        Keep America great? Unabated death, skyrocketing unemployment, social upheaval none of us have ever seen in a lifetime. That's great? Why do you and Trump want to destroy our country?

        By any measure, you are completely disassociated from reality.

PLM=Prisoners Lives Matter
Please fellow Democrats , many of us are at Galvin Newsom's mansion already. Please join us TODAY and join us in our non violent protest. Prisoners by the hundreds have been infected by their keepers with the coronavirus, they need to be let out of their cages, and be free. Turn on your TV, see how orderly we are, and join us.

An 8-year-old black girl was shot dead inside a car during a Black Lives Matter protest, leading the Mayor of Atlanta to proclaim, “We are shooting each other on our streets.”

The shooting happened on July 4 near the same Wendys that was torched by BLM protesters in response to the police killing of Rayshard Brooks less than a month ago.

“A crowd of protesters gathered there and erected barricades. A car tried to enter the area to find a place to park, but was blocked by the activists,” reports RT.

“In the ensuing confrontation, at least two people in the crowd opened fire at the vehicle, hitting Secoriea Turner, 8, police said. She was taken to Atlanta Medical Center, where she died from her wounds.”

The gunmen responsible for Turner’s death are still on the loose.

“You can’t blame it on police officers,” said Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. “You can’t say it’s about criminal justice reform. This is about some people carrying weapons, who shot up a car with an eight-year-old baby. For what?”

“In the civil rights movement there was a defined common enemy,” she added. “We are fighting the enemy within. We are shooting each other on our streets. You’ve shot and killed a baby!”

Despite the Mayor’s plea, some Black Lives Matter supporters blamed her for taking away attention from police brutality.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Atlanta, 14 people were shot and two died during a July 4 street party on Auburn Avenue.

Video footage of before and during the shooting shows that virtually all of the attendees at the party were black.

Meanwhile, in Chicago, 67 people were shot, 13 fatally, over the July 4 weekend, with 9 of the victims being minors. Two children died.

One of the victims was a 7-year-old girl who was shot in the head while standing on the sidewalk at her grandmother’s house.

“Tonight, a 7-year-old girl in Austin joined a list of teenagers and children whose hopes and dreams were ended by the barrel of a gun,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

Don’t expect any ‘Black Lives Matter’ marches to take place in honor of any of the black children shot by black men over the last few nights.

Apparently, black lives only “matter” when they are taken by white people.
