Biden Admin Won’t Allow July 4 Patriotic Fireworks at Mt. Rushmore


The Biden administration rejected the fireworks event at Mt. Rushmore. It is what the hard-left wants and he does it. A letter from the Superintendent of the park denied Governor Noem’s application.

“After careful consideration, the NPS has determined that we are unable to grant your request for this permit to hold a special event with fireworks at the Memorial,” the letter said.

“Based on the information provided in the application, we have determined that multiple such criteria are present for the requested event, each of which would be independently sufficient to deny the request for a permit,” the letter stated.

According to the Park Service, concerns about wildfires along with opposition to the display from Native American tribes were the driving factors behind the agency’s decision.

The letter stated that “fireworks are viewed by multiple Tribes as an adverse effect to the traditional cultural landscape” and cited a Tribal Cultural Survey conducted in May 2021 that found “ample opposition from the Tribes” to the last fireworks display, which took place in 2020.

The letter also said a fireworks event “poses threats to the environment and Memorial resources,” going on to cite increased levels of perchlorate — a chemical compound that is used as an oxidizer in fireworks — in the area after the 2020 display.

Regarding the danger of a wildfire, NPS said “current drought conditions and the 2022 wildfire outlook” make it impossible to host an event using fireworks because it “would cause a high likelihood of a wildfire ignition.”

That is probably not the reason. It’s more likely it’s political by the anti-America leftists. That’s just an opinion. What do you think? If Biden has an opportunity to cancel anything pro-America, he’ll do it. He’s despicable.

Donald Trump approved the event during COVID. There were no problems.

“This know also, that IN THE LAST DAYS perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” —2nd Timothy 3:1-7

Obama is so petty just like the arrogant mosquito.
I’m surprised Rushmore hasn’t been renamed to Mt. Lenin and blasted to rubble.
It is going to be a tightrope for the CPUSA to bang the patriotic drums of WAR while burning it all down better.
