Inauguration Observations

By Eric G Braun, Senior Writer, USRW

“We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all our people. Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges, we will confront hardships, but we will get the job done.”

And with that, comes the end of an era, Road Warriors, and the beginning of a new one. Like him or not, Donald J. Trump, with a candidacy that defied the odds and the dirty game of politics, has become this nation’s 45th President.

Blankets, hot cocoa, and crying sessions are in full demand.

In a speech, dubbed as 'militant' by the left-wing pundits, Trump put the world, and more importantly, Washington on notice. There is a new Sherriff in town, and Trump made that quite clear. With outgoing President Obama behind him, Trump broke with protocol and basically laid out the current state of America, which in his description he painted it as the mess it is, with Obama sitting 25 feet away.

“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. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families across our land.”

Obama looked angry, and I noticed he didn’t clap. Trump had just broken protocol for criticizing an outgoing administration at this ceremony.

“We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first.”

Harsh words, but the man is telling it like it is, and that’s how he got elected.

In attendance were the Clintons, although I had to wonder how many Xanax Hillary had coursing through her veins, but give her credit for showing up; another participation trophy if you will. It was an amazing moment to see all the former Presidents and First Ladies (get well George and Barbara) gather for the event, and a sobering moment to see how old they all are now.

Forgotten were the over 60 Congress members that refused to attend; they put themselves before the country they were elected to serve. Their baby and selfish antics are a disgrace, and their tantrums will amount to be nothing more than a trivia question, and nothing but a small footnote in history.

They should feel the shame they deserve.

Trump tried to reach out to his detractors, “We are one nation and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams. And their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny. The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.”

How refreshing it was to see such a dignified and close knit family, a patriotic display that America needed so badly after years of an apologetic President who thought being superior as a nation was a flaw.

Over, is an “unjust “Justice Department, disdain for law and order and our Police. Gone are the days of being told being superior is wrong, gone is the disrespect shown to our military and allies.

Those days are over.

What lies ahead of us, remains to be seen, watching all this today, I wondered just what the future holds for Trump and for all of us.

The deplorable’s won the day today, and the woman who coined that very “fateful” disparaging remark is back at home, wondering what the hell happened.
