I feel like a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders.








I watched the Inauguration from early this morning until it was over. I didn't watch on any channel but Fox, because I didn't want to listen to all the whiny, carping, sour grapes that I'm sure were on the MSM channels.

From scanning the internet, it seems like there wasn't much disruption in D.C.  A bunch of wing nuts tried to disrupt the Deplorables Ball.  I watched some 12 year old brag about lighting a fire in the street outside , then say he did it to say "screw the president." That little bastard needs a good tanning with a switch off a tree, but if he was all they could find to put on the news then the great "protest" must have been lame beyond belief.

And then there's this:






He's gone. I can't believe it.  He's gone, and his party doesn't control either the House or the Senate.
Not that I have much faith in the Republican party hacks in D.C.  But they can't be as bad as the Democratic hacks.



They let Little Chucky speak at the ceremony. Maybe they had to.  He used up most of his time naming all the Democratic Party favorite constituencies, all the Gay, Transgendered, Blacks, Hispanics, etc  He said not word one about white people . Then he read part of a letter from a Federal officer in the Civil War, whom the evil Confederates killed at First Manassas. Given the way the battle went, the writer probably had a heart attack running away, but Chucky didn't say.




 I don't know what the hell his point was but eventually he sat down.  The man has been a complete and unashamed idiot for decades.  This was just par for the course.

I was surprised that most of the ceremony seemed to be prayers, and singing.  I was waiting for the Mullah to prance out there and give the faithful a call to prayer, but at least that didn't happen. I have no problem with Christian and Jewish prayers, we need all the help we can get.

Part of it I didn't really understand: initially the President had a phalanx of military personnel behind him, then they left, then they came back. Anybody know if that is part of the ceremony, and if so, what it means?

No human being alive could clean up the mess we are in after so many years of Obama, and his poor quality predecessors from both parties.  But maybe Trump can make a difference.  Diocletian, the Roman Emperor known as "The Reformer" couldn't save Rome but he probably staved off complete disaster for a generation or two.  Maybe President Trump can do the same.




One thing this whole election has taught me.  I'm not a Republican anymore. I voted Republican for more than 40 years. I always voted, even when I was deployed or stationed overseas. I voted Republican even when a better man was running for an office on the Democratic Ticket, like Sam Nunn. I didn't want to increase the power of the Democrats in any way.

But now, I've seen clearly that there is exactly zero difference in the two parties. They have a symbiotic relationship, and they're run by exactly the same kind of Tammany Hall political scumbags.

So from now on, I vote for whoever best typifies my own ideals. Nothing to lose anymore.



A rewrite of an old song I always liked.  This version fits the day.



          


This was our day, but this video (from the 17th of January) shows you what's still out there. The Moon Bats haven't gone away.


           


I don't usually post just a link, and certainly not one to the trash rag the New York Times. But this article is worth reading if you have time.

  1. I thought it was great that there were so many prayers; we've certainly had a godless White House for the last eight years. I commented on the uniformed guys to my wife and wondered what it was about. I think you're right that Trump can only postpone the inevitable; once enough of us deplorables die off, the snowflakes will take over and pull the plug on any life left in our nation.

    1. I was really surprised. After all, the federal government has been doing all it can to totally eradicate Christianity from American culture for decades. No "God" in the classroom, or in military service. No Christmas displays that depict religious beliefs. And on, and on. Then we have this critically important ceremony and half of it is purely religious. I am pretty sure if Hillary had won, there would have been the obligatory 5 second prayer by Pastor Sharona Remadamnbam of the non-denominational Unitarian Church of Zarathusa and that would have been it.

      I'm bewildered by the thing with the troops. But I have never watched an entire inauguration before and maybe it happens all the time. We had a hell of a storm come through here last night, and I got zero sleep, but I had promised myself this time, I would watch the entire ceremony and the lead up.

  2. Harry,

    Great post.

    I especially enjoyed comment about the Schumer "The man has been a complete and unashamed idiot for decades."

    I think we've dodged the bullet for now: but its still circling the earth.

    1. Moe, I have detested that man since I got out of the service and started getting involved with the NRA. Before that, I didn't understand what a complete twit he was. He's that strangest of combinations, a Jewish fascist.

      We have a reprieve. Hillary had a list of "to do's" that was terrible to contemplate, and I'm pretty sure our noble Republican House and Senate members would have sold out to her to make themselves look "progressive."

      Now, at least, we have a breather. I'm 64, and if Trump goes two terms, I may not even have to go through all this again.

    1. I wondered if the news wasn't focusing just on the inauguration. I'll have to watch CBS tonight. I can't stand NBC or ABC anymore, but I can watch enough of CBS to get some idea of what's going on. I'll check that link you sent.

      I updated the post and added a short documentary down at the bottom, posted a couple of days ago on the net, about the people planning the very things you mentioned in your comment.

      Strange, I was sitting here thinking the time has about come to pay that trash in the streets back in their own coin. But someone will have to start the show on the road.

  4. I started watching the coverage early this morning and recorded most of it for the boys to see later. I am over joyed to once again have a President that is brining God back into Washington.
    I also was getting irritated with Chucky making his speech political and I thought the Obamas would never get on that plane. A speech from the air terminal...wtf?????
    I saw that little brat kid too....he and his pafents need to be arrested on arson charges.
    anyways it hasnt hit me yet...we made it through these long 8 years....

    1. It's been so long since we had a good man in power who was also an intelligent man. He's a person of strong faith, and reestablishing the viability of Christianity in the United States will make his supporters more powerful and our enemies in the country weaker. I'm not religious but I certainly recognize the benefits that Christianity offers to our society.

      I could have tuned that little jerk up with a leather belt and done him some good. He reminded me of some of those I'd get in my classroom back when I was teaching. A complete waste of air , but they'd stick them in my room because "he just needs a positive male role model." What he needed was a good hiding.

  5. I can't stand when "protestors" become violent. I never understood that. If one is marching to make a stand against something, busting a window out or anything of that nature destroys everything you are standing for. I'm for protesting (although I don't know that it really helps), but against rioting.

    1. They're doing it for a good time, Alissa. That's what they enjoy doing. If they tried that in my town, they'd get shot. The businesses here are how people support their families. But in the cities, it's just one of a million other store locations, nobody has any stake in the business, and the insurance can handle it. So all these freaks get to show out and destroy property, attack the police. In the past, they got arrested, and bailed out, within an hour or so. What needs to happen is for them to sit on their collective asses in the drunk tank with Big Bubba for a couple of days, and then do some time. Until there's a penalty they will never stop.

      I remember right after Trump was elected and all these "George Soros funded" protests broke out. I saw one protester who was being interviewed, and the newsman asked him why he was out starting fires in the street. He said " Ah, I don't know." That's not something I heard on the net, I saw the news clip on the evening news.

  6. Schumer was trying to get one last dig in before the winds changed, and didn't even break topsoil.

    The clergy representation was, to say the least, fantastic. Too long have the left tried to deny the Judeo-Christian background and underpinning of this country. (And nice dig by the rabbi about JERUSALEM being the center of the JEWISH faith (Take that, you socialist bastards!!!))

    And then Trump SPOKE. I could only imagine that this is what people felt like when they listened to Washington or Lincoln. It was 'Service' and 'Power to the People' but done correctly. Only three 'I' references and they were 'I will do xxxsx because of you.' And slamming the established elites amongst their midst. Wow.

    Afterwards went to the local store for foods and ran into a USS New Jersey vet (with hat and flag inspired shirt) and he was strutting. Talked to a MAGA bedecked father of 4 about the speech while standing in the veggie section, and people were listening and agreeing how wonderful it was.

    I think the military people were running umbrellas and other rain gear to all the assembled people. Their motions were too random, in a controlled fashion, and at one point you can see a female soldier clearly carrying an umbrella.

    All in all, an inspiring start to a tough 4 years of disaster clean-up and rebuilding.

    Wow. Just Wow.

    And I watched the speech three times because it was THAT good.

    1. I liked his speech, and for the first time since Reagan (whom I did not particularly like) it sounded like someone saying what they really meant. Politicians, when they speak, come across as fake, all that acting and puffery, they aren't sincere, they know it, and they know everybody knows it.

      I caught that bit about Jerusalem too. I think it ought to be the capitol of Israel. If it makes the Arabs mad, that's too damn bad. Like the song says, "you can't always get what you want."

      I saw the people carrying umbrellas and all. But the part that bewildered me was right after Trump started speaking, about 8 military personnel from all the branches came down and lined up behind him. A few second later, a Marine Corps Captain came down, whispered to an Air Force officer, and they all did an about face and walked up the stairs. Then when Trump was about finished, they all came back and lined up behind him again. I don't know if somebody made a mistake, or it was part of the program.

      There's a reason people say "when the Schumer hits the fan."

    2. Trump has pledged to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem. I am sure that lots of head towels exploded in flames over that statement.

      And, yeah, looks like the uniformed personnel did an oopsie. But, it still looked cool.

      And the review of the troops was cool, too. Who would have thought that 'Yankee Doodle Dandy' would make me tear up?

    3. I watched a lot of the parade, though not all of it. I particularly enjoyed the old Viet Nam era helicopters displayed on floats, and manned by the men who flew those types in the war. I liked the military participation, and the high school bands.

      I guess those fellows moved down behind the President sooner than they were supposed to, but no big deal, I enjoyed their presence. It emphasized that this President appreciates the military, and doesn't just pay lip service to them while treating them like dirt in reality. Obama and his ilk were no friends to the warrior class.

      Let the Moslems be angry. What of it? With the exception of Egypt and Jordan, who are pragmatic, the rest of them , including the Saudis, hate us anyway. They just try to use us. Israel has every right to make the city their capitol and I hope they do.

  7. Schumer's speech was a bore and it was the one part of the event that we turned the volume off. I think Trump's speech was right on point, and about as good a kick in O-bumer's ass as could be, and still keep it civil. You are not the only one feeling a weigh has been lifted off our shoulders. The eight year long nightmare is finally over. There is cause to feel optimistic.

    1. It has been particularly hard having Obama and his ilk in charge, because we'd had to go through the Clinton regime not so long before that. Bush wasn't very impressive and didn't do much to lighten the load.

      I'm glad Trump is not a machine politician. If he was, I would still be feeling relief that the Bitch didn't get into office, but I wouldn't feel much hope because I know the two parties just play a game with the Washington Crowd holding all the marbles. Trump is the real thing, and that does make me very hopeful.

  8. Harry-a collective sigh of relief from many of us. I loved the President's speech. He spoke the truth boldly. I can't stand Schumer. I felt the same way that you did when he started reading the letter of the union soldier. Of course, he has no regard for American citizens from the South. We are just a bunch of hayseeds down here. I enjoyed watching the faces of the obamas during President Trump's speech. I was happy that they were irritated. Good riddance to those two. Oh, and I have to mention the fact that Mrs. Trump was so elegant and poised. Michelle could not hold a candle to her. Jana

    1. Jana, all you say is right on target as far as I am concerned. Michele Obama distinguished herself by a number of gauche actions when she was in the White House. She made her contempt for America plain. The new first lady has style, is feminine, and is sincere. I like her.

      Only a New Yorker would be tacky enough to introduce something into the narrative at the inauguration that was a slap in the face to the South. That Schumer did it surprises me not one wit. I often wonder how all those troops in the Federal Army from Ohio, Indiana, etc would feel if they could see what came out of the South losing the war.

      President Trump really stuck it to the oily political class, of which Obama is a prominent member. I enjoyed that.

      At least now the bicycle man is gone. Thank God. "Free at last, Lord, free at last!"

    5. RR, I'd give you even money that dope couldn't tell you who won the battle.

      I was watching Fox and that dolt Shepard Smith said that Arlington was "donated" to the United States by "George Washington." The reporter he was talking to backed that up.

      In fact, as I'm sure you know, it was Robert E. Lee's home when the war started. He acquired it through marriage to a descendant of George Washington. The Federals confiscated it when he declared for the Confederacy, and it was never returned.

      I am constantly amazed by how little these Talking Heads and politicians know.

  10. Hey Harry,

    I watched some of the news today off an on. I am glad Trump signed two executive order's tonight also. Maybe he will sign more tomorrow.
    I was elected president and was sworn in on Friday. 'Fifteen percent of the federal government would be laid off by Monday.

    'By the way, Ann Coulter stands vindicated. When she announced that Trump would win hands down on that stupid, crappy tv show and was laughed at. You can see the look in her face when everyone was laughing at her. It really did bother her. Now she stands vindicated, triumphant.

      The President didn't waste any time getting down to it. I believe he means to move fast on things he can do by executive order. And the sweet thing is, it was Obama who started using executive orders left and right, so it will be hard for his lackeys in the House and Senate to bleat about it now.

    2. I too feel alot better about our direction. 8 years ago it seemed that Bush #43 just took office, and he was done.

    3. Rob, the immediate danger of more Obama style "edicts by pen" that negatively effect our lives is over now. But , all those morons who worship Obama and Hillary are still out there. They comprise more than half the country. I don't see how the malcontents can do a lot with any real effect, seeing that President Trumps (nominal) party controls the Legislative Branch, the Executive Branch, and will be completely reworking the Judicial Branch. All this prancing in the streets and throwing trash cans into shop windows is immaterial. Still, something needs to be done about the media. I've had it with their lies and distortion. I think the "free press" that is guaranteed by the Constitution is not one that acts as a distributor of lies and propaganda.

People are more aggressive and standing up for themselves. True, the Morlocks, Limousine Liberals, Moon Bats, Snow Flakes and the vast crowd of Sheeple are still dead set against us, but now we have the political power.

  14. Hi Harry, congratulations on the inauguration of President Trump. we are so pleased for you and it gives us hope here across the pond. Our media are always banging on about how we always follow America like lap dogs. Well, I'm sure hoping we do this time. We would love someone like Trump over here, someone who loves his country. The lot we have got here seem to detest Great Britain, almost as much as most of us detest them. Don't think it is just America that has an almost one party system. It is exactly the same here, a cigarette paper between them all. Although now Labour has Corben as leader and he is an outright communist so god help us if he ever gets in power. We watched the inauguration (first time) and really enjoyed the prayers and Trump's speech, which was outstanding. Our media kept on about how good an orator Obama is (the best of the century according the BBC, which we call the bullshit broadcasting corporation). Anyway well done all you deplorables and god bless you all.
    All the best to you and your family

    1. Duncan, I have felt ten years younger since Trump was elected, and even better now that he actually sits in the Oval Office. I really did not think this could happen. I felt like the "Dims" had it rigged from the get go, especially with all the fat, pasty faced Republicans in the RNC and elsewhere refusing to support him. Better a fellow club member from the other party than someone whom they could not control. It's nearly miraculous. I remember several people telling me to ignore the polls. Captain Crunch and Michael both emphasized that all that MSM misinformation was just that, misinformation. I went to bed the night of the election resigned to 8 more years of decay and deceit. I woke up that morning to a modern miracle.

      Obama was the worst thing to happen to this country in a hundred years. Even worse than Bill Clinton, and that's saying something. But now, with President Trump, the decent people of this country will have a say in how they are governed. It does make me feel both hopeful and actually happy.

      You English have been standing up for yourselves. I notice England still exists, despite all the shrieking and hollering here from our media when you decided to control your own destiny. Things are getting better. In France and Germany, there's a strong resistance to Islamization that wasn't there a year ago. In Italy they are moving them out. Scandinavia has learned it's lesson and is shipping Islamists out wholesale. The news is good on all fronts.

      Glad all is well with you and your family. Keep me posted.

  18. Harry,

    I believe the military guys behind Trump at the inauguration were attempting to hand out umbrella's and plastic to prevent the rain from getting those on the balcony wet. As for the parade afterwards, he was being introduced to the heads of each group appearing in the parade in front of the glassed box.

    Every time Schumer came on while watching TV, I tuned anything he said totally out and went into the other room to work on chores.

    The news media continues to play their little games.....and we all must just to them out.
