    Will there be a separate post for just PRESIDENT Trump’s inaugural speech? It was probably one of his most magnificent, and IMHO deserves as much attention and re-watching as possible.

      Trump’s speech he regarded the past as the past, and to look to the future.

      I think a deal may have been made among Trump, Obama, and Clinton, not to pardon her, because Trump would not use the FBI to go after her for the private server.
      I think there is a separate issue with the Clinton Foundation and taxes. Not sure if that would have been part of the possible deal.

          “Since the 15th century, Lady Justice has often been depicted wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents objectivity, in that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favour, regardless of money, wealth, fame, power, or identity; blind justice and impartiality.” — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Justice

          DID HILLARY TAKE MONEY FROM RUSSIA? DID HILLARY GIVE RUSSIA 20% OF OUR URANIUM? WHY IS HILLARY BEING TREATED DIFFERENTLY THAN JULIUS AND ETHEL ROSENBERG ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julius_and_Ethel_Rosenberg )?

          This. Trump claims to be a Law & Order President so he should follow suit on it. No one is above the law.

          Just a speculation on my part.
          Trump is usually surprising with his predictions.
          After the election, he walked back on Hillary’s prosecution talks. He probably believes it to be a lost cause, does not want to look bad chasing lost causes. It prevents his ‘winning’ from being diminished if he chases that.

      Michael – If your info is correct then I agree that Jeff Sessions (upon hopefully being confirmed), who already reportedly said he would recuse himself (according to what I recall Rush Limbaugh describe as an error), should appoint a special prosecutor. Indeed, wasn’t a member of the navy sentenced to one year in prison for taking pictures (without any malice)? We either have a country of equality before the law or we don’t.

        My assumption is that Sessions will appoint a special prosecutor who is much, much tougher than he is. It is a slam dunk. She destroyed evidence (emails)(cell phones). Not even debatable if that is a crime.

    I must, repeat, MUST, celebrate today while watching nevertrumpers and sick liberal America-haters swallowing their own venom. It is my personal reward for the bitter taste I’ve had in my mouth and the anguish felt over the past 8 years, watching an anti-America president and his accomplices do everything in their power to sabotage our country and dismantle the middle class. Hurrah! At last. Lets make America Great in spite of traitors and charlatans. God bless President Donal J. Trump and his team.

      • Bert Darrell says:

        Climate Change (formerly referred to as Global Warming) is the name of a fake temple erected by politicians who worship a fake religion that promotes extreme human arrogance in the belief that human survival activities can change atmospheric conditions more than nature itself. These politicians have never shown much interest in the causes for the disappearance of massive glaciers, the size of entire countries, at a time when very few people inhabited planet Earth and combustion engines were not even a dream. However, they assign great credibility to “97% of unnamed scientists” who, they claim, support the theory of Climate Change (although on the basis of fake data, distortions of true data, and, more than anything else, banning scientists who have gathered opposing data from publishing their data). So, I am not surprised that our new government has decided to postpone the issue until after America is made great again.

    I would like to share this today on this VERY SPECIAL day!! This is Raymund my step-uncle whom I never had the honor of meeting. Unlike the snowflakes of today Raymund lied about his age and joined the marines at age 17. He was killed storming the beach on Iwo Jima in WWII. A true American hero it is he that I think of when i see the despicable snowflakes protesting our great country. Protesting only because heroes like Raymund gave all for their freedom. God bless Raymund and all our fallen heroes and hence the reason I spit on the ground at the sight of these protestors.

      My dear “big brother” cousin Ray also lied about his age in order to join the Navy. He was a crew member on one of the landing craft that carried Marines and equipment for their landing on Iwo Jima. In one of the many island landings his ship participated in, his best friend was blown up on the beach next to him. I applaud these two strong young Americans and share your feeling.

      I too lost an Uncle in WW II in France when he and his unit were killed by a strafing aircraft. Luckily my Father survived WWII in China and later Korea. I also served as did my son. None of us have much toleration to the anti-American democrats and anarchists.

    So Obama as opened up http://obama.org and there’s this video clip of Michelle and Obama telling folks they are going to take a break. Then mention the Obama Foundation which will be more than a Presidential Library based in the South Side of Chicago. It sounds like it will be a community organizing foundation. Well they are soliciting the public for ideas and what the public thinks is important. Bwahahahaha They have no real plan whatsoever! I bet they will build a safe space bouncy house room where you can put on an inflatable straight jacket and jump and bounce around to classic songs like “The Wheels on the Bus” while huffing on nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
