The photo of the biker and the guy in the Bernie shirt is not from the inauguration festivities.
It is from a rally eight months ago, back in April.

They panned right to Obama with Hitlery and W. Bush sitting right behind.


I just got done with just the first few minutes of POTUS' inauguration speech. Great stuff. MAGA!! Because YOLO!

I think we're about to enter into a very weird period in American history. I've repeatedly said that I'm not optimistic about this presidency, but I'm very optimistic about the 4 or 5 remaining judges on the "short list." So I guess I'll just wait and see on the rest of the mess.
The best part about today? The absolutely most awesome thing?

The 45th peaceful transfer of power in 228 years.

But I really like your assessment. That's about where I am.

Forward Observer Open Source Intelligence is tracking all of the "special" groups as they protest in and around DC. I had no idea there were so many different snowflake groups.

When POTUS finished his speech and walked down the line of people behind him, he shook all their hands except Biden. Classic!

My favorite sign from one of the protests in DC, thus far at least, was one that said "Down With This Sort Of Thing".

A prankster appears to have infiltrated their ranks. For a second I thought his cap, which was red, might have said Make America Great on it.

As for the speech, I thought he did a pretty good job. Immediately after that, of course, the various networks I bounced around on basically tried to distill it down to the narrative that it was populist, narrow, didn't go far enough, went too far, etc., etc. I expected nothing less, but I still enjoy watching them try to make sense out of this whole thing.

I bet if they followed the money a large sum of it would be from an old familiar place......

I couldn't agree with you more but actually, although Trump is the 45th person to hold the office, it's only the 42nd peaceful transition in our history.

Well, since he's from New Zealand, it's probably not a relevant question from his frame of reference.

However, if the assembly is inciting immediate rebellion, then the First Amendment doesn't cover its activities. Probably not the case here, though.

So far 100 people will get a chance to have their voices heard.

In court, when they go before the judge.

Bill Clinton looked out of it, and HRC looked like the only thing that kept her from yelling "it's my turn," were pharmaceuticals.

There is a video that shows Bill looking at something and Hillary catching him, staring at him for like 15 seconds straight with a smile on her face but angry eyes, then he notices her looks guilty and goes back to staring at whatever he was looking at.

Caption said she caught him staring at POTUS wife. Pretty perfect if that was the case.

Watched most of the coverage. Interesting to note the relationship that has blossomed between protestors and reporters.

Protestors make sure to mix in with the reporters as they seem to believe police will hold back if there are reporters in the mix (essentiality using them for cover) and the reporters get the money shot of whatever the protestors are breaking / lighting on fire / stealing.

I think that's a bad look on many levels, and the relationship just pushes more bad behavior from both sides.

I thought the speech was good. I saw some of the typical lefties whining that he actually said, "America first!" WTF is wrong with these people. Chrissy The Leg Pisser Matthews mentioned that Mussolini killed his son in laws when talking about Jared Kushner this morning. He followed that up later on saying that POTUS' speech sounded "Hitlerian."

This says he was eyeballing Ivanka, can't say I blame him.

Bad like Paris Match reporter Claudine Vernier-Palliez when she went out with a gaggle of Fedayeen when they fired an SA-16 and hit the DHL Airbus cargo ship over the CJSOTF-AP compound.

Didn't look too good for her to be 'embedded' like that.

Do You Know Someone Suffering From Trump Unacceptance & Resistance Disorder (TURD)?
TURD is a pattern of pathologically dissociative and psychotic behavior, first observed in the late hours of November 8th 2016, and increasing in severity with passing time.
Sufferers of TURD often exhibit pronounced cognitive dissonance, sudden bouts of rage, rioting, and uncontrollable crying.
People with TURD are characterized by a persistent unwillingness to accept that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again.
TURD Is caused by the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States of America. For many, both in America and worldwide, this was a shocking and unexpected outcome; their preferred news sources having failed to inform them that the alternative candidate was a criminal parasite.
Research is ongoing, but TURD appears to correlate closely with some of the following environmental and behavioral factors:
* Membership in the Democratic Party
* Identifying as a Feminist
* Currently enrolled in college, and/or Possession of a Liberal Arts college degree
* Living in a densely populated metropolitan area
* Massive student debt
* Spotty or non-existent work history
Patients with TURD are very resistant to treatment, and dangerous in large groups. Any possibility of treatment requires that they be separated from their hive-mind support apparatus; they cannot begin the process of accepting reality in the presence of encouragement towards delusion and irrationality. Separation may require the assistance of law enforcement.
If you have a friend or loved one suffering from TURD, urge them to seek treatment. Together we can beat this scourge, and Make America Great Again.

I really don't think treatment is possible only time may heal. Of course if they exhibit violent tendencies report to the police as possible terrorists.
