There were some amazing visuals on Friday night at Mount Rushmore during the Fourth of July celebration with President Donald Trump.
First we’ll start with where we left you last night, with the vans protesters tried to blockade the event with being hauled away and people in the streets cheering.

Beneath the illuminated faces of Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln, Pres Trump invoked the words of Dr Martin Luther King Jr., whom he says called on his fellow citizens not to tear down the American heritage but to live up to it. pic.twitter.com/976vpe3qbw

This is President Trump’s ‘A Time For Choosing’ speech.
It is excellently written and executed .

“My fellow Americans, it is time to speak up loudly, strongly, and powerfully, and defend the integrity of our country,” he finishes after wailing away on cancel culture and the leftist cultural revolution.
From Fox News:
“Those who seek to erase our heritage want Americans to forget our pride and our great dignity, so that we can no longer understand ourselves or America’s destiny,” he said Friday. “In toppling the heroes of 1776, they seek to dissolve the bonds of love and loyalty that we feel for our country, and that we feel for each other.”
“Their goal is not a better America, their goal is to end America,” he said.
“We will not be intimated by bad and evil people.”
This is the exact tone @realDonaldTrump needed to take tonight. Firm on freedom, refusing to bend a knee to the rage mob, and grateful for the animating spirit of liberty that has made our inimitable country the best.

He also hits the Democrats for remaining silent in the face of the chaos and says one cannot remain silent.
In typical Trump fashion, you want to tear down Washington, Lincoln and Grant? We’ll build even more.
President Trump on Friday announced the creation of a National Garden of American Heroes to pay tribute to historically significant Americans — a garden that will include former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and baseball star Jackie Robinson among past presidents, anti-slavery advocates and others.
“I am announcing the creation of a new monument to the giants of our past, I am signing an executive order to establish a National Garden of American Heroes, a vast outdoor park featuring statues of the greatest Americans to ever live,” he said in a fiery speech in front of Mount Rushmore Friday night.
The fireworks were pretty stunning too.

So what was the media take on it? The memo obviously went out, CNN, the NY Times and other liberal organs terming it “dark and divisive.”

But the Feds have been busy arresting some of the folks behind this chaos. Take out more of the leaders and organizers and they will break the back of this effort.
There is a time for choosing, as Ronald Reagan and Trump have both said, standing against the chaos or going down into oblivion by being silent in the face of it, or worse, helping the chaos. The Democrats have been the latter, we all must stand against it.
