Secretary of State Marks Memorial Day by Riding with Rolling Thunder, & Declining to Celebrate Ramadan

Like the post? Why not make it Facebook official. ⇊

Can you imagine any of the effete Obama-era officials suiting up and riding along with Rolling Thunder? Now try to picture someone from President Trump’s team getting in on the action.

The imagery stands as a perfect example of the differences between the elitist, European makeup of the Obama team and the down-to-earth American-centric Trump team.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


On Sunday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gave us a graphic visual of the differences between the Obama era and the Trump era when he spent his morning on a ride with Rolling Thunder as part of the administration’s efforts to mark, and honor, Memorial Day.

But the Secretary of State wasn’t done yet. This past week he showed us how much things had changed from the Obama era by refusing to kowtow to Islam as well.

Secretary Tillerson released a statement last week marking the Muslim holiday of Ramadan and wishing all Muslims well during the celebration.

On behalf of the United States Department of State, Renda and I sincerely wish Muslims around the world a peaceful and blessed Ramadan.

Ramadan is a month of reverence, generosity, and self-reflection. Most importantly, it is a cherished time for family and friends to gather and give charity to those who are less fortunate. This time reminds us all of the common values of harmony and empathy we hold dear.

I wish all those celebrating a very happy Ramadan Kareem.

But when asked if the State Department would be celebrating the holiday as it did during the Clinton, Bush, and Obama era’s, Tillerson flat out refused.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has declined a request to host an event to mark Islam’s holy month of Ramadan, two U.S. officials said, apparently breaking with a bipartisan tradition in place with few exceptions for nearly 20 years.

Since 1999, Republican and Democratic secretaries of state have nearly always hosted either an iftar dinner to break the day’s fast during Ramadan or a reception marking the Eid al-Fitr holiday at the end of the month, at the State Department.

Tillerson turned down a request from the State Department’s Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host an Eid al-Fitr reception as part of Ramadan celebrations, said two U.S. officials who declined to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Once again, the Trump administration walks the line in the best possible fashion. The administration has spoken of Ramadan respectfully and has wished all Muslims well, but there is no need for a nation that is mostly “Christian” and has a Muslim population of about 2% to waste time and money on government-sanctioned Ramadan celebrations.
