Donald Trump Pledges ‘America First’ Creed, says ‘You will Never be Ignored Again’ … And Power Back to the People!!!
TRUMP CHIDES WASHINGTON POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT AND PLEDGES POWER BACK TO THE PEOPLE …
President elect no more, now President of the United States Donald J. Trump. In his inauguration speech, Trump ripped the Washington, DC political establishment class and promised to return the power back to We the People. President Trump stated an ‘America first’ creed and ‘you will never be ignored again’. This is why Trump was elected. Let this be a warning to Republicans and Democrat politicians alike.
Donald J. Trump preached the populist and nationalist message that fueled his presidential campaign in his first remarks as the 45th president of the United States, pledging an “America first” creed.
“The forgotten men and women of this country will be forgotten no longer,” the businessman and former reality television star said in front of the U.S. Capitol on Friday.
As raindrops fell on the crowd gathered on the National Mall, Trump said he planned to “transfer power from Washington, D.C.” to the people, taking swipes at politicians, some of whom stood just over his shoulder. He told Americans that “you will never be ignored again,” repeating his campaign pledges to push companies to return jobs to the U.S. and to rebuild American infrastructure.
UPDATE I: Trump criticized those in Washington who he said had forgotten those who bore the cost of the actions of politicians.
“We are transferring power from Washington DC and giving it back to you, the people,” said Trump.
Charles Krauthammer on the Hypocrisy Over the Bradly/Chelsea Manning Commutation vs. Wikileaks Hacked Emails (VIDEO)
The hypocrisy of Barack Obama and the LEFT that they would consider the Wikileaks embarrassing, hacked emails of Team Hillary damning and the reason why she lost a presidential election, while Manning’s release of documents and information of America’s actions in on going wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, including the identities of individuals who were working for us, many of whom are probably now dead as they were hunted down and killed as nothing and only worth a slap on the wrist.
People’s lives were put at risk, but Obama trumped national security issues vs. an individual with a gender issue.
Barack Obama Looked to Reduce Manning Sentence He Viewed as ‘Nuts’ as Common Sense Americans See Obama and Manning’s Actions as Damage to America
ON HIS WAY OUT THE DOOR, OBAMA PROVES TO ALL THAT HE IS THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF AND OUT OF TOUCH WITH MAINSTREAM AMERICA …
In what can only be described as the perfect metaphor to personify the Barack Obama presidency, Obama and his minions looked upon the 35 year sentence handed down to Bradly/Chelsea Manning as “nuts,” while others that like to refer to as those that live on this place I call Earth, looked upon the crimes that Manning committed as an extreme danger to the United States. Barack Obama and those in his ear would have us believe that Manning has already served enough time as the lame duck president commuted Manning’s sentence by 80% from 35 years to 7. Obama’s own Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter recommended against commutation, but Obama did it anyhow. Why? What would possess a President of the United States of America who took an oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, to do such a thing knowing the damage that Bradly Manning did? Maybe, just maybe we are seeing the real Obama and his agenda in his last days and his legacy of not only failure but intended damage and division to America.
The key question for the president was how much time Manning should serve. He and his advisers looked at other government leak cases, which indicated that 35 years was the longest sentence ever imposed for a leak conviction. By the time the second request came in, Manning had served six years, much of that time subjected to harsh treatment and solitary confinement.
In his decision to commute Manning’s sentence, made public this week, Obama knew he would face criticism, the person close to the president said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. “But he felt strongly it was the right thing to do.”
Most people think Barack Obama is nuts and much worse for commuting a sentence of an individual that committed an act of treason against the United States. Andrew McCarthy at National Review provides the basis of the damage caused not only by Bradly Manning, but Barack Obama as well. Obama’s actions are breathtaking when one considers that in a different time and generation, Manning’s actions would have been cause for the death penalty. But as Instapundit opines, “look at the way Obama treats America’s friends and compare it to the way he treats America’s enemies, and it’s obvious that Obama’s interests and America’s only rarely coincide.”
- First, it is also disgraceful for the New York Times to report without balance that “Prosecutors … presented no evidence that anyone was killed because of [Manning’s] leaks.” As the Times well knows, in cases involving classified information, the government frequently cannot reveal – let alone prosecute – the damage done.
- Second, there is a logical way to deduce the damage caused. I laid it out in a column about Hillary Clinton’s reckless mishandling of our nation’s secrets:
- Third, the degree to which Obama has wielded executive power in favor of America’s enemies and against his own political opponents and scapegoats is breathtaking. The treasonous Manning gets an 80 percent shave off his sentence. Now we learn Oscar Lopez-Rivera, an unrepentant FALN terrorist convicted of waging war against the United States, has also had his sentence commuted.
LOOKS LIKE A MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE HOPEFUL ABOUT 2017!!!
Yet another story the liberal MSM will not tell you about. According to a new Morning Consult survey, 72% of Americans say they feel hopeful about 2017. One would think that with all the negative media stories of Trump and the unwillingness of the LEFT to accept Trump as president that this number would be a lot lower. But maybe, just maybe the mood of the country is much like the 2016 presidential election … a change and move away from Obama and the Left to the message of hope and Making America Great Gain that won Donald Trump an electoral landslide.
Nearly three-quarters of Americans, or 72 percent of those polled, say they are feeling hopeful about 2017, according to a new Morning Consult survey.
Sixty-one percent of respondents say they are feeling optimistic about the upcoming year, and 51 percent of people are feeling excited.
But half of the respondents say they are feeling anxious about the coming year, according to the poll.
Twenty-three percent reported feeling sad and 19 percent reported feeling angry going into the new year.
Less than half of respondents say they are feeling peaceful or relaxed about the coming year, and a quarter reported feeling indifferent.
Eighty-one percent of Americans say they are concerned about the nation’s political atmosphere, and 64 percent are worried about world affairs.
Still, 55 percent say they think 2017 will be a better year than 2016, with 59 percent saying they expect to do better financially in 2017.
JOHN GLENN, A TRUE AMERICAN HERO HAS PASSED AWAY …
Astronaut, aviator, US Senator and American icon and hero, John Glenn has passed away at the age of 95. Glenn died at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio, surrounded by family including his wife Annie. What a remarkable life. As a Marine Corps pilot, Glenn broke the transcontinental flight speed record before being the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962. Then, 36 years later at age 77 in 1998, becoming the oldest man in space as a member of the seven-astronaut crew of the shuttle Discovery. In a time in which we all dreamed of growing up to be astronauts, John Glenn made that a possibility. He is a national treasure and will be missed. Farewell to an American hero … Godspeed, John Glenn.
His legend is otherworldly and now, at age 95, so is John Glenn.
An authentic hero and genuine American icon, Glenn died this afternoon surrounded by family at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus after a remarkably healthy life spent almost from the cradle with Annie, his beloved wife of 73 years, who survives.
He, along with fellow aviators Orville and Wilbur Wright and moon-walker Neil Armstrong, truly made Ohio first in flight.
“John Glenn is, and always will be, Ohio’s ultimate hometown hero, and his passing today is an occasion for all of us to grieve,” said Ohio Gov. John R. Kasich. “As we bow our heads and share our grief with his beloved wife, Annie, we must also turn to the skies, to salute his remarkable journeys and his long years of service to our state and nation.
The John Glenn Story
Sadly, with the passing of John Glenn, this means that all of the original 7 astronauts chosen to lead the fledgling US space program in 1959 are now dead. They were the last of a dying breed of space explorers who were larger than life. Maybe this will wake NASA up and they can get back to doing what NASA was intended to do.
