Oklahoma has renamed a highway after President Trump, NYT blames “GOP elites” for BLM decline and mothers claim agency for profiting off their dead sons, Trump honors fallen heroes, Michael Flynn appears to suggest coup.
Oklahoma Lawmakers Rename Highway After Former President Donald Trump
Republican lawmakers in Oklahoma passed a bill that has since been signed by Republican Governor Kevin Stitt, that will rename a highway after former President Donald Trump, the Oklahoman reported.
A 20-mile stretch of U.S. Route 287, which runs north to south through the Oklahoma panhandle, between Boise City and the border with Texas, will be named after the forty-fifth president, the Daily Wire reported.
New York Times blames “GOP elites” for declining popularity of Black Lives Matter organization
The New York Times published a series of articles on the first anniversary of Torah Floyd’s death on May 25, where one article complained that “support among white Americans” for the black lives matter (BLM) organization “as proof of fickle and volatile,” which “contradicts the idea that the country underwent a racial reckoning,” the Daily Wire reported.
But rather than blame BLM itself, the Times is blaming “GOP elites” for the decline in popularity of the organization. The NYT apparently overlooked that many Americans have learned BLM has a Marxist agenda. Most prominently, the public has seen the potential internal corruption following the recent scandal in which cofounder Patrisse Cullors resigned after outrage arose after it had been learned that she purchased a home worth over $1 million in the exclusive Topanga Canyon, a mostly white neighborhood outside of LA, and owns four luxury homes, including one in Malibu, that total $3.2 million in value. It was reported that the nonprofit known as BLM received more than $90 million from supporters. Three days ago, a group of mothers whose sons had been slain by police spoke out against BLM, accusing the organization of profiting off their dead sons, the New York Post reported.
Trump Honors Fallen Heroes on Memorial Day
Former President Donald Trump thanked and honored Americans who made the “supreme sacrifice” on Memorial Day.
“The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism has no equal in human history,” Trump said in a statement, the Daily Caller reported. “On distant battlefields, in far-off oceans, and high in the skies above, they faced down our enemies and gave their lives so that America would prevail.”
“They made the supreme sacrifice so that our people can live in safety and our Nation can thrive in peace,” Trump continued, saying the nation owes “all that we are, and everything we ever hope to be, to these unrivaled heroes. Their memory and their legacy is immortal. Our loyalty to them and to their families is eternal and everlasting.”
“America’s warriors are the single greatest force for justice, peace, liberty, and security among all the nations ever to exist on earth,” Trump added.
Michael Flynn Appears to Suggest a Myanmar-Style Coup Should Occur in US
While speaking at the “For God & and Country Patriot Roundup” in Texas on Sunday, former national security advisor Michael Flynn appeared to suggest that a Myanmar-style coup should happen in the United States.
An audience member, who identified himself as a Marine, asked Flynn: “I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here?”
The question was met with a round of cheers from the audience.
Once the crowd quieted, Flynn responded, “No reason. I mean, it should happen here.”
In February, Myanmar’s military seized power in a coup and overtook the country’s democratically-elected government, the Hill reported.
In December, amid allegations of voter fraud, Flynn suggested that then-President Donald Trump should deploy the military to “rerun the 2020 election.”
