U.S. Embassy in Indonesia Celebrated “Green” Independence Day in June Out of Respect for Islam

Independent Sentinel

Our Indonesian-at-heart president had the U.S. embassy in Indonesia celebrate Independence Day a month early on June 4th out of respect for Ramadan. Our embassy is considered U.S. territory – it’s a sovereign entity – but Obama is a foreigner at heart.

He wasn’t brought up as a typical American. His years in Indonesia combined with his communist background led us to where we are today with a president who is literally destroying our Republic.

Independence Day is our most sacred holiday and to have our representatives in Indonesia act in a subservient manner is extremely insulting to the citizens of this country. Independence Day can’t be changed. It is July 4th.

Independence Day is a big deal in our embassies. Changing the day was a powerful statement.

I wonder if the Indonesian embassies in the United States will move Ramadan.

Celebrate Independence Day By Opposing Government Tyranny


The Daily Sheeple

By Ron Paul

This week Americans will enjoy Independence Day with family cookouts and fireworks. Flags will be displayed in abundance.

The mainstream media and opportunistic politicians have turned Independence Day into the opposite of what was intended. The idea of opposing — by force if necessary — a tyrannical government has been turned into a celebration of tyrannical government itself!

The evidence is all around us.

Historical fact: Independence Day is a celebration of freedom from government tyranny

Happy July 4th, my fellow Americans. It’s the Independence Day weekend!
Independence from what, you might ask? As even the somewhat revisionist history
taught in public schools readily admits, July 4th is a celebration of
independence from government tyranny under British rule.

And what
kind of government tyranny, specifically? Well, the kind that involves
warrantless searches of peoples’ homes, where government agents could just waltz
right into your private home for no reason and conduct a search without even
getting a court-issued warrant. That was a form of government terrorism
waged against the people, and when the USA declared its independence from
British rule, it adopted a new rule at home that specifically forbade such
tyrannical government actions.
