Biden dumps on 4th of July

President Trump confirms July 4 fireworks at Mt. Rushmore - CNNPolitics

No fireworks had been seen above Mount Rushmore since 2009, but last year, President Donald Trump said that would change.

On May 7, 2019, Trump said on Twitter they would return to the Shrine to Democracy, with references to Gov. Kristi Noem and Interior Secretary David Bernhardt.

“I am pleased to inform you that THE BIG FIREWORKS, after many years of not having any, are coming back to beautiful Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. Great work @GovKristiNoem and @SecBernhart! MAGA.”

July 3, 2020…

This year? The Biden administration has decided not to allow Fourth of July fireworks at Mount Rushmore.

National Parks Service Regional Director Herbert Frost wrote to South Dakota’s tourism office that it it is “only prudent to make plans based on the best available science and public health guidance available today. Potential risks to the park itself and to the health and safety of employees and visitors associated with the fireworks demonstration continue to be a concern and are still being evaluated as a result of the 2020 event.”

A joint press release issued by South Dakota’s congressional delegation criticized the decision. The statement issued by Sens. John Thune and Mike Rounds and Rep. Dusty Johnson read: “Let’s be clear, this decision is political, not evidence-based. President (Joe) Biden just said himself that Americans can safely gather by July 4 — what’s changed in a day? Last year millions watched the celebration in awe, and it’s a shame the administration is denying Americans that opportunity this year.”

  1. I would just go ahead have the fireworks. Who is the wiser? Why all this getting permission from a jack ass?
    If I hear another idiot talk about ” the best available science” in regards to covid, none of us should be wearing masks or taking these shots unless they had some terrible health risk, and even then I wouldn’t take it. You couldn’t pay me to take it.
    It proves that people trip all over themselves to be obedient. ” I was just following orders.”
    I don’t know if it’s interesting or disgusting to watch people in their inability to recognize what is happening as this country implodes. I didn’t think it would fall so fast, while so many stood by, oblivious.
    Sad.
