WASHINGTON – The Pentagon has approved President Donald Trump's request for a display of tanks in conjunction with his 'Salute to America' celebration on the National Mall here on the Fourth of July, the president said Monday.

Trump confirmed that the tanks will be parked near the National Mall for the July 4 celebration, the president said during remarks in the Oval Office.  

'We're gonna have some tanks stationed outside,' Trump said. 'You know we're making a lot of new tanks right now.'

Again I say: OEN needs to pass out free barf bags. Thanks, Lila.


P.S. And off track, BUT while I'm thinking of it, to any reader reading this, if you aren't supporting OEN, I encourage you to at least make a small monthly donation. Seriously ponder life without OEN and look at where your money is already going. We're all pinched, as far as I know, yet all part of a chain, that is as strong as its weakest link. But we are looking at our future here, most literally and in the very short term.

Oh dear, the hypocrisy of Americans has once again risen to the surface. It appears folks living Outside the U.S. can identify this hypocrisy far easier than Americans themselves can. Or is that folks living outside the propoganda regime do still have functioning brain cells that are able to RECALL previous such celebrations and military grandoise parades conducted under other American Presidents, NONE of which ever received the critisism being focused on Trump, for doing what has been a U.S. favorite forever.

Folks need to visit this site, IF they wish to avail themselves of the FACTS on this issue :

The tanks are so that the people don't get any ideas about ever being free.

If Costa Rica has anything the US wants, it's in peril.

Since the estimated cost for this abomination is 30 million taxpayer dollars -- expensive Viagra for this dickless wonder -- the money and effort should not go to waste. How about televising a REAL military coup toppling the #1 biggest threat to the planet aside from climate change.
