It’s Finally Morning Again In America, And A New Day For Our Country Starts Now

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

For the first time in decades, it feels like morning in America again. I was quite young when Ronald Reagan was president, and I only have vague memories from those days. But I do remember the extraordinary optimism that his leadership inspired, and my hope is that Donald Trump’s leadership will be just as inspirational. For such a very long time, it has seemed as though a giant dark cloud has been hanging over America, but now a new day is starting. If Donald Trump can be president of the United States, it seems like just about anything can be possible. And even though our nation is facing incredibly serious challenges, could it be possible that we can find a way to turn things around if we all work together?

Seeing Trump on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday was a very special moment. Like Lincoln, Trump represents a once in a generation hope for real change

Kicking off three days of carefully orchestrated inaugural proceedings infused with pomp and guided by precision and protocol, the president-elect reveled in the moment and delivered a tribute to the populist movement that propelled him into office.

 

“We all got tired of seeing what was happening and we wanted change, but we wanted real change,” Trump said on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. “It’s a movement like we’ve never seen anywhere in the world, they say.”

Inaugurations are a time for hope, and tens of millions of us are hoping that the election of Trump will mean a better future for all of us.

But of course so many among the elite hate him with a passion, and there are many in both parties that will be fighting him every step of the way.

Can Trump really be successful in such an environment?

We shall see, but what seems clear is that he doesn’t plan to change who he is now that he will be residing in the White House, and this is clearly rankling a lot of people

Donald Trump enters the White House on Friday just as he entered the race for president: defiant, unfiltered, unbound by tradition and utterly confident in his chosen course.

 

In the 10 weeks since his surprise election as the nation’s 45th president, Trump has violated decades of established diplomatic protocol, sent shockwaves through business boardrooms, tested long-standing ethics rules and continued his combative style of replying to any slight with a personal attack — on Twitter and in person.

In his inaugural address, Trump will plead for national unity, and that is a good thing because our nation is deeply divided right now. As a new Rasmussen survey has discovered, most of the country has a very strong opinion about him either one way or the other…

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters share a favorable opinion of Trump, with 30% who have a Very Favorable one. The president-elect is viewed unfavorably by 48%, including 37% with a Very Unfavorable view.

But the good news is that Americans are feeling quite good about life overall these days. In fact, an astounding 80 percent of all Americans are content with “the overall quality of life” that they are enjoying at the moment…

Americans are feeling far more upbeat this January than they were a year ago, especially about the economy, according to Gallup’s annual “Mood of the Nation” poll, which is conducted each January.

 

The most recent poll, conducted Jan. 4-8, finds a whopping 80 percent of Americans are satisfied with “the overall quality of life,” up four points from a year ago.

If Donald Trump can bring the nation together, perhaps the next four (or eight) years can be a time of renewal for America.

An immense amount of damage was done during the Obama years, and Trump has a massive amount of work ahead of him. But he seems to have a boundless amount of energy, and he is accustomed to only sleeping a handful of hours a night.

Let us pray that Trump and his team will make good decisions and will set this nation on the right course, because we are in desperate need of a turnaround.

Earlier today, I came across a piece from an anonymous source that is entitled “Twas The Night Before Inauguration“. The anonymous source indicated that it was okay to share this with others, and so I thought that I would share it with all of you…

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,
AND OBAMA – YOU’RE FIRED!”

I just thought that piece wonderfully captured the flavor of the moment.

And another work that is being widely shared today is an old song entitled “In America” by the Charlie Daniels Band. It was released in May 1980 just before Ronald Reagan was elected, but the lyrics are also perfect for what is happening in our time. If you are not familiar with the song, you can find it on YouTube right here

Without a doubt, there will be some intense political battles in the days ahead.

But for just one day can’t we all come together and choose to have hope for the future of this nation?

I am not saying that everything has been fixed just because Donald Trump has been elected, nor am I suggesting that any of our problems have diminished in any way.

The challenges ahead of us are truly great, but at least the election of Donald Trump has given us a glimmer of hope, and there are many that believe that a new day for America may finally be dawning after all these years.

I don’t personally support Trump’s inauguration, and numerous polls indicate that many other Americans don’t either. The government should listen to the people, and suspend Trump’s inauguration! Just like in the UK, where millions signed a petition for a second referendum on the EU, millions of Americans have stood up to Trump’s fascism and said enough is enough. It’s time to restore democracy by suspending Trump’s inauguration and holding a second election, this time without Russian intervention!

Could A Miracle End Trump’s Inauguration?

If our friends can be counted on to continue to do anything to further their interests, picture a scenario where Trump pushes hard for Jerusalem to be the new capital of Israel...to ensure that success, an event so traumatizing must occur to push it through.  An Arab patsy will be found and enabled to assassinate Trump, putting NeoCon Pence in power and cementing the next phase for Greater Israel...

 

Israeli Lawmakers Celebrate the New “King of the United States” With Evangelicals

January 19 2017, 4:27 p.m.

Right-wing Israeli lawmakers in town for Donald Trump’s inauguration addressed prominent American evangelicals gathered at Greater New Hope Baptist Church in downtown Washington, D.C. on Thursday, lecturing them on the importance of moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and offering hope that President-elect Donald Trump would fulfill his promise to do so.

Speaking to a gathering that included a who’s who of Christian right leaders — including Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins, Faith & Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed, and Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson — Israeli Knesset member Yehuda Glick, who belongs to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party, spoke about Trump’s election in messianic terms.

He began his remarks by approvingly quoting Psalm 72, which speaks of welcoming a new king. “It is a prayer for King Solomon, and it is the prayer for all kings and especially a prayer for the king of the United States.”

He then pivoted to explaining his own path to politics — how he went from a hardline rabbi advocating permanent settlements in the Palestinian territories to being elected as a Likud lawmaker — describing his victory as a miracle.

“Tomorrow, 21 hours from now, and 14 minutes, there will be another miracle!” he said, speaking of Trump’s election to sustained applause.

“Trump throughout his campaign, again and again and again repeatedly spoke about Israel and Jerusalem,” he reminded them, his voice escalating as if giving a sermon. “We’re so close, friends of Jerusalem and Israel! […] He can choose to be a Cyrus! He can choose to say Jerusalem, all nations should recognize Jerusalem!”

(Cyrus is the Persian King referred to in the Hebrew Bible who rescued Jews from their exile in Babylon.)

Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem is a goal sought by Israeli government officials, such as Netanyahu, who seek to make Jerusalem the undivided capital of the state of Israel. That would preclude the Palestinians from establishing a state that includes East Jerusalem — where 300,000 of them live today with severely curtailed rights. Most international observers believe that this would render the two-state solution impossible and thus be damaging to peace.

While campaigning for president, Donald Trump initially wouldn’t commit to moving the embassy — but by the end of the campaign cycle placed himself fully behind the relocation to Jerusalem. Asked about Trump’s current position on Thursday, incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer asked reporters to “stay tuned.” “There will be a further announcement on that,” he said.

At a briefing on Capitol Hill before the event, Glick was joined by Sharren Haskel, the Knesset’s youngest lawmaker and a fellow Likud member, who echoed many of the same themes in an interview with The Intercept.

“In this new administration, we have a lot of hopes,” Haskel told The Intercept. “We do hope that one of the first moves that Donald Trump will do is to move the embassy.”

Glick told The Intercept that many in Israel didn’t feel like Obama was willing to consider their point of view. “Can you imagine the president of France saying, ‘Listen I don’t think it’s a good idea that Washington should be your capital. Maybe Orlando!'”

(The residents of Washington, D.C. may be without full voting rights but they are not militarily occupied or denied citizenship like the Palestinians in East Jerusalem.)

“Jerusalem is the capital of Israel whether you like it or you don’t,” he concluded.

With Trump, on the other hand, Glick is hopeful.

“President Trump and Vice President Pence have both expressed what I feel, and I’m not a god, I don’t know how to read hearts, I have felt genuine true sincere friendship with Israel.”

What is that?

Speaking to a gathering that included a who’s who of Christian right leaders — including Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins, Faith & Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed, and Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson — Israeli Knesset member Yehuda Glick...

None of whom asked him to disavow the Talmud's blasphemies against Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary, which are literally tenets of Judaism.

Those not supporting the Inauguration are not Americans. They are enemies of the Nation.

Does not matter who you voted for. Whining about the inauguration is an assault on the process.

I also thank Russia for providing the American People with the transparency to make an informed voting decision.

jeff montanye's picture

oh poo they are so.  i supported the hell out of trump but i am sick past vomiting of one faction or the other claiming it alone represents "america".  protesting an inauguration is ok; not as good imo as protesting the start of a war or some actual policy event but ok.  and russia may have nothing to do with the wiki leaks.  julian assange who knows more than either of us says not.  seth rich may really have died for his country.

Uh, no, Michael, this is not four years ago.  Leave the kumbya pipe alone.

I completely agree...

When they win, we hear... "elections have consequences" & "our seat is at the back of the bus"

When we win, we hear... "oh, let's work together"

Bullshit !!!  I hope Trump weilds the power of the "pen & phone" like a iron fisted gauntlet to crush the liberal resistance once and for all.

The millions that signed a petition who were found to live every fucking where in the world but the UK?

Bullshit ... UK moved on and notice the fucking difference to assholes like you MDB.

NO FUCKING DAY AFTER FUCKING DAY PROTESTS AND RIOTING LIKE SPOILT CHILDREN.

Although did find this awesome vid to a millenial song ... a song written after you MDB.

The millenial song

Now get your fucking ass in gear? you want a democrat president? 4 years time and I am banking on the fail again, because they will use the same MO of fraud and corruption with a socialist dictator just like the last warmonger president who I get the sneaky feeling is racist on the black side this time.

By the way, nice to see you still going Happy New Year!

A a CIA tool you are rather crap donny.

Did you see Trumps list of cuts? PBS? Really, you want to put the Dems in charge in Congress in 2 years? That list is a joke..sure, plenty of fat to cut in there...but why start with those items...it you cut ALL of that, that's like a single days worth of spending for Medicare/aid and defense...if you're going to balance the budget...or at least MOVE in the direction of balancing the budget...you've got to cut defense spending and vigoriously go after the rediculous cost of "health care" FIRST!

Wasting TREMENDOUS political energy to cut PBS to save $500M? Take a poll, an honest poll, of women especially...$1000 says 95% approve of the money spent funding PBS...I know I do...I can turn PBS at any time and find something that raises my IQ, rather than gutting it like "private" tv shows.

BabaLooey's picture

FUCK PBS

That cabal of bowl-haircutted bitches and soft whipery voices needs to be flushed like the smelly turd it's become.

These are the same "wimmen" you can find stocking the Teevus shows of Ellen, Wendy Williams, The View, and The Chew.

Fuck them too.

Like someone is going to vote for someone based on PBS.

Take a Pamprin and don't call me in the morning.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck............

PBS = NPR = National Propaganda Radio

FireBrander's picture

Your reality diconnect disorder (RDD) is raging. Go into any home with children, R/D, Religious/Secular and you will find the TV tuned to PBS. Their independent films give voice to small film makers, many, many, filming without political/agenda bias..it is money well spent. The only thing I would cut from PBS is the "News hour"...just another propaganda spewing outlet.

The "private" LIBERAL "entertianment business" doesn't compete with PBS's programming because, for the most part, PBS doesn't push leftism through it's shows like Hollywood...turn PBS over to "private" hands...aka Hollywood...and you've just given them another, POWERFUL tool to indoctrinate children with Leftist ideaology.

Yeah...PBS doesn't push leftism. And I'm Ethel Merman.

Stop drinking out of the toilet. Makes you spew nonsense - as exhibited.

jeff montanye's picture

imo pbs pushes a little leftism, more as a beard, and a whole lot of zionism.

trump needs to go forward with drugs from canada as a first step toward using medicare/aid to bargain for lower healthcare costs on the way to single payer.  or not, but sure as shit use the current system to make a better deal for the american people.

and trump needs to go after isis as a way of showing resolve to the very bad actors of the cia and israel.  let the 9-11 families sue the saudis and depose the israelis who managed security at newark and logan that day, and just see where that leads.  maybe give immunity to some of larry silverman's posse.  end the wars and bring the troops home.  one person one vote in present day israel including gaza.

FireBrander's picture

I said for the most part.

I can spot the "pushing" of BOTH sides; when I watch PBS, the level of Leftwing "pushing" is very, very minimal compared to all the other "entertainment" channles out there. PBS News, it leftwing bullshit for sure, but that's tiny, tiny part of the programming.

Oldwood's picture

The money is paper. The COST of these entities being funded by taxpayers is not in dollars, it is in the fact that we are SUPPORTING organizations who are our ENEMIES.

Sure, deficits matter but not because of dollars but because of leverage, indebtedness, POWER. These organizations are actively working to propagandize, manipulate, CORRUPT our nation AGAINST OUR INTERESTS, using the fruits of OUR LABOR to defeat us. As much as anything else, it is an INSULT to the hard working people of this nation that these elitists fucks are robbing us to defeat us.

FireBrander's picture

Political "money"...aka "Capital"...is fleeting. 

Only a fucking idiot takes on their "enemies" via actions THAT TURN THE NEUTRAL POPULATION AGAINST YOU!

Starting a fight over PBS gives LIBERALS NEW AMMO and RALLIES THE TROOPS TO THEIR SIDE!

IT IS A DUMB FIGHT TO PICK ON DAY ONE!

For fucks sake, we're already arguing over it and, even though I voted for Trump, I would support anyone else that stands up against turning PBS over to Hollywood...holy fuck how dumb an idea is that? Like I said, other than PBS news, PBS is a fairly neutral "entertainment" outlet. I find it very educational and NOTHING Hollywood puts out even comes close to PBS's content.

And to think, all of that content, GREAT content, for an ENTIRE YEAR, is produced for $500M...geesh is that ever a bargain. Hollywood spends that on one worthless movie or brain numbing Sitcom.

MalteseFalcon's picture

PBS's audience is miniscule and they all voted for Hillary Rodent.

I don't need to see the propaganda laden "Frontline" or the global warming pumping "Nova" again.

As for "Downton Abbey", the British make all of that and it will be on BBC America.

FireBrander's picture

Hogshit, I voted Trump, I'm in the PBS audience...can't think of single person, especially those with kids, that aren't in the PBS audience and their religious/political affiliations are all over the map...PBS does a great job of providing the majority shows they want to watch...neilson ratings prove it.

MalteseFalcon's picture

The ratings don't prove it.

The political posturing in PBS's children's programming is grating.

This will not hurt Trump at all.

And America's children watch too much TV as it is.

A free country doesn't have, or need, state-run news outlets. Cutting $500M on day one is quite a tidy accomplishment if you ask me, regardless of where it comes from.

FireBrander's picture

So sick of this "Free Country" BULLSHIT...such a thing NEVER HAS and NEVER WILL exist..the FIRST THING the founders did upon breaking free of England was to WRITE A BUNCH OF FUCKING RULES to CONTROL (restrict the Freedom of) the new American Citizens.

As long as there are two people on this planet, neither of them will be free.

Admit it.

You have a picture of Terry Gross over your murphy bed.

Admit it.

Quote me where I said this is a free country. By saying that a free country doesn't have what the US has, I am including the US in the "not a free country" category. Ridding us of the things free countries don't have moves us in the direction of freedom. I know logic is hard but try to keep up.

Your are pining for a "free country"; can never be achieved...no country has EVER been "free"; just leesor degrees of slavery to government.

Don't think in terms of dollars.

Think in terms of dead snowflake count.

PBS is a direct hit on snowflake central.

Very effective.

PBS abandoned its traditional progressive role and licked boots during W's adminstration, and then followed with 8 years of corporatist excrement.
