Trump puts Americans first!

           Despite persistent wishful thinking, ridiculous scheming, and CNN even giddily postulating that some awful disaster at the inauguration could relieve liberal anxiety with Obama’s “designated survivor” as president, it still happened – Donald J. Trump is now the 45th President of the United States.

            Thankfully the inauguration was dignified, pleasant, and uneventful although the press desperately sought rabble rousers.  There were some unruly protesters (unknown how many were paid), but their antics paled in comparison to any weekend in Chicago.  Impish immature masked cowards tossing random bricks are simply senseless and silly; anyone watching just wondered “what’s the point?”

            While hired agitators frantically frolicked to get their presence noticed and some Congressional Democrats hoped their absence would be noticed, credit is due Democrats like Obama, Clinton, et al who still honored the office and tradition attending the inauguration with proper decorum.  It’s not just politics or politeness.  The peaceful transition of power is very serious business; it’s what keeps a nation from devolving into violent partisan chaos.  The opposition and past presidents regardless of party witnessing the oath is a vital testament to the certainty and credibility of the transition.  Thank God there’s still a point when the officials on that platform put country before party.

            President Trump pulled no punches in his inaugural address.  Like a tribute facing down the denizens of Capital City, he pointedly called out the encroaching oligarchy in our federal government for fiddling while the people suffered.  Trump defiantly stated: 

“For too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.  Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth.  Politicians prospered, but the jobs left, and the factories closed.  The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.  Their victories have not been your victories.”

Trump returned power not to the Republicans, not to himself, but to the rightful owners of America – the people!  He said “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.”  He declared to EVERY person in America “this is your moment, this is your country.”

Trump’s brief distinctly selfless speech was a refreshing departure from Obama’s protracted narcissistic ramblings.  Regularly referring to himself with severe repetition, Obama typically clocked an “I” every 20-30 seconds.  Trump however only referred to himself 3 times and in each case to commit himself to his duty.

Trump boldly reiterated his campaign promises to bring back jobs, restore opportunity and prosperity, close the borders, and make us safe again.  Chiding perpetual complainers, Trump proclaimed the time for talk is over; it’s time for action.

Not cowed by the belligerent media and entrenched globalist leaning establishment, Trump’s inaugural theme was unmistakable – America first!  Unabashedly proud of America, Trump has no malice to others just the simple assertion the American way is a good way and to us the best way.  He was truly gracious and inspirational, but the media coverage was somber.  Sadly, Trump could have sung the Partridge Family theme “Come on get happy” and a grim Scott Pelly of CBS would have still called it a “dark” speech.

And for all the incessant carping about bigotry and racism, Trump’s speech was more inclusive in 18 minutes than Obama in 8 years.  Repeatedly reaching out to ALL Americans:  “New national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.  It's time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black, or brown, or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots.”

            Trump demanded our disagreeable federal government put America first, but he also acknowledged the vital role of our Creator.  So now we the people must put God first; and it will be so.

            “And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”  Mark 10:27

George! Thank you so much for commenting and the kind comments of course. Thank you also for the link, but sadly liberals really don't want to know reality - they won't let it is stand in the way of their quest for utopia. I mean did David understand it? He hasn't trolled me in quite some time, so please give him my regards. All the best to you and your family. Pete

Always love your stuff ... you are 100% correct as usual ... keep up the good work supporting our great new President. He needs our support now more than ever. This is a fantastic simple explanation about emigration that even a liberal could understand.
