    Thanks SD for posting this comprehensive schedule. I was hoping that I could find something like this and you did it! I cannot believe the time has arrived. I am going to be on cloud 9 tomorrow and hoping that I will be able to concentrate as I teach my classes. I will be itching to get home to watch the festivities.

    There is a new awakening and spirit about to set on this country. It will be the end of an error and the dawn of a new era. God bless Donald Trump and Mike Pence and God Bless the U.S.A.

    I have a question-All the dems who refuse to go to the ceremony Friday have tickets. Will they take those tickets and give them to trouble makers? I heard earlier today that the Trump team were asking them where those tickets are. I can see them giving tickets to code pink.

    Tony Orlando suppose to be one of the performers (BOR)

    Also , Erin Burnett had a segment with Tom Barrack , the one everyone liked from convention. They were at the convention center that will have the 3 balls. They were talking about some of the plans with first dance, numbers expected, etc.
    Tom thinks Melania will wear same gown for all 3, but he wasn’t sure because he hasn’t really been in on that side. I could tell Erin was trying to dig for what she will wear & which designer. I glad she didn’t get the scoop, because CNN would turn it into a negative somehow.

      Yep, lots of rain coming! My wife and sister in law have made it almost to DC. My wife flew to Colorado, then Newark, now on a train to DC, almost there! She’ll met up with my sister in law in New Jersey, so they are together now. They are meeting four other Deplorable friends of ours in the morning for a full day of fun and partying. They are ready to rock!

    The Talladega College Marching Tornado Band is on their way to DC. They are really excited about getting to go.
    They raised over $625,000 including $25,000 from Bill O’Reilly’s foundation. According to Hawkins, money not used to fund the trip to the inauguration would all stay in the band program and not go to the school’s general fund.

      I’m glad it’s going for the band vs the college itself. They deserve it, and as a former marching band parent I know these programs often get short shrift vs sports.

        Yes & as small as the school is they will never see this amount to use for what ever the band needs. They are talking about maybe building a new practice room for the band although they would like new instruments & uniforms too.

        Another local paper had pics as they were leaving & the smiles on their faces are truly ear to ear type smiles. They are all so happy & had a big send off.

  30. Video of PE Trump surprising guests at his Hotel in D.C. tonight

    It is reported that PE Trump is flying back to NYC tonight on board Trump Force One and that tomorrow he will fly back to D.C. on board an Air Force Jet for the first time (I suspect a Boeing C-32 which is the AF version of the 757).

    For you young ones who’ve never seen this: Irving Berlin wrote “God Bless America,” and Kate Smith introduced it to America — in 1940. The Nazis were marching across Europe and bombing England, but we were still poised on the brink, wavering. Wonderfully patriotic, great visuals, from the time when Americans were AMERICAN.

      I still remember Congress singing this after 9/11. We were reunited for a brief moment.

      They say when Kennedy was shot was the end of innocence. 9/11 ended whatever was left of that innocence.

      From what I understand a lot of propaganda went into our World Wars but I’d much rather prefer that America than what is happening now.

      It’s nice to come here and read for an uplift, though, after being shell-shocked from daily Breitbart headlines.

    As I am entering the second half of my life knowing perfectly well that my time is getting shorter every day in what I have left on this planet, I once knew of a America that was beaming with hope, aspirations and dreams. As a fellow New Yorker, I know what Donald Trump has seen, and where our past comes from, and what he is trying to restore. That is why I thought it was appropriate to include in this segment a video based on the song by George Gershwin “Rhapsody in Blue”. This song when it was conceived, was at a time when America was in it’s infancy in realizing all the dreams, hopes, and challenges of achieving success through hard work and dedication. A young nation growing up to find itself, to build into a pillar of strength and for the world to envy. This song itself says that the sky was limit in what we as Americans could achieve anything and was all on the horizon for the taking. This song is my tribute to Donald Trump, from one New Yorker to another, we haven’t forgotten where we have came from, and thus we seek to restore what was once a great nation for all who dared to dream and to work hard to make those dreams a reality, we stand with you Mr Trump in solidarity for all Americans. God Bless you, and God Bless America!

    I did not write this I found it on Facebook by yes, a fellow Trump supporter and had to share.

    Had to share…..

    Twas the Night Before Inauguration!

    Twas the night before Inauguration, and up in the tower,
    The Donald reflected on his newfound power.
    The conservative masses had come out in force,
    And delivered a victory that would chart a new course.

    The snowflakes were shell-shocked with tears in their eyes,
    The media lied to them . . . What a surprise.
    They had been promised a Hillary win,
    But the criminal Clinton took one on the chin.

    And though from all corners celebrities flew,
    They made no impression, for they hadn’t a clue.
    They talked about climate, racism, and such,
    And they made up good stories . . . But didn’t know much.

    The fake news and ignorance came at a cost,
    And they can’t understand all the reasons they lost.
    They blame it on Comey and Bernie and Vlad,
    But fail to acknowledge the one that was bad.

    Yes, Hillary Clinton, in many ways flawed,
    Was her own biggest hurdle toward getting the nod.
    The campaign exposed her corruptness and greed,
    And her speeches were punch-less as ten dollar weed.

    So out in the streets there arose such a clatter,
    It was Soros-paid protestors and Black Lives Matter.
    With cities to pillage and windows to smash,
    They knew not the issues, but needed the cash.

    Eight years of Obama had given them cause,
    To expect a replacement of their Santa Claus.
    But soon the protestors will feel the pain,
    When the wheels fall off of the old gravy train.

    And now all the snowflakes are riddled with fear,
    Upset and offended by things that they’ll hear.
    The cocoa and crayons will help for a while,
    But fact-based opinions will soon cramp their style.

    I originally supported, and voted, for Cruz,
    In the end, I would vote for whoever they choose.
    He wasn’t my first choice, but soon I would cede,
    The one they call Trump is the one that we need.

    I saw him on TV in front of a crowd,
    He spoke about veterans, it made me feel proud.
    He spoke about energy, safety, and jobs,
    Taking this country back from the Washington snobs.

    He was dressed in Armani, all tailored and neat,
    And the Brunos he wore made the outfit complete.
    For a man of his vintage, he seemed rather fit,
    And he looked presidential, I have to admit.

    His eyes glowed like embers, his smile was the best,
    And his hair was the color of my old hunting vest.
    His love for this country was on full display,
    And his actions spoke louder than his words could say.

    He thanked all his voters, and before he was gone,
    Saved thousands of jobs while Obama looked on.
    The fate of this country left nothing to chance,
    So, he filled out his cabinet weeks in advance.

    The men he had chosen were of the same mind,
    Let’s set the bar high, and not lead from behind.
    He picked up his phone as he rose from his seat,
    With a flick of his finger, he sent out this tweet;

    “Now Mattis!, now Kelly!’ now Sessions! And Pruitt!
    On Perry! On Flynn, You’re the ones who can do it.
    Start lifting restrictions and building the wall,
    Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”;

    The roar of his audience rose from the stands,
    He kissed all their babies and shook all their hands.
    He answered their questions and calmed all their fears,
    They knew it would be a fantastic four years.
    Then he jumped in his limo, and off to his jet,
    A fellow that Liberals won’t soon forget.
    He sent one more tweet as the evening expired;
    “Happy Inauguration to all,

    Wow. So Blessed. I love President Trump and our Tree House Family!

    I am so in a state of peaceful joy with the thought that True Grace and Class will reign in our White House. Melania will be a fabulous First Lady, she will return a gracious quiet dignity to that role, such a charming soul.

    Remember Moochelle’s glare at Carla Bruni, Sarkozy’s former model wife, in France? She is gonna go nuts over how out-classed she is.
