At Mount Rushmore, President Trump declares that we kneel before no one but our almighty God……
Trump hails our American heroes and slams protesters who want to desecrate the statues of our founding fathers and demean our history, values, and disrespect our flag.……
And of course, the lefty media from the commie news network (cnn) to every known lefty site on the internet, slammed and accused our president of speaking just to his people, creating racial and class discord. Not a kind word to say. Well, I say “FUCK THEM ALL”!!!!

America the Beautiful
July 4, 1895
Katharine Lee Bates‘ poem called Pikes Peak is first published in the church publication Congregationalist. The poem Pikes Peak was inspired by an 1893 trip to Colorado, where she witnessed the wheat fields of Kansas, and the majestic view of the Great Plains from Pikes Peak. A revised version of Bates’ poem was combined with music by Samuel A. Ward and published as America the Beautiful in 1910.
The original (which differs from the modern version):
“O beautiful for halcyon skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the enameled plain!
God shed His grace on thee”
