Has anyone questioned who controls Wikipedia? Who funds or owns Wikipedia? They can write anything to smear Trump despite all the good work he has done for Americans. 

 

So all the quoted Poll centers at the Wikipedia post are fake and just smear?

 

You must be kidding!

 

Wikipedia articles are written by contributors. You don't even know how Wikipedia works. OMG.

The person who wrote the Wiki article just compiled all the different polls from July 2020 to Jan 2021.

I have faith that the transition of power will be able withstand disruptions by selfish quarters. Majority of ppl always know correct thing to do.

 

I have the same faith.  Only two more days until then, and no rational people question anymore that BIden won the elections fairly.  And with so many troops in Washington DC it is improbable that any rogue group may attempt something, although one never knows,  there are crazies everywhere...

 

Trump may testify during his impeachment trial?  It would be so nice to hear from his own mouth how he justifies his claims that the elections were rigged!  PROOF!

It could be that after next week we will be missing Donald Trump.

 

The world will be boring again.

 

No uproars, no shaking heads on this lavish stupidity of a President, no shock on Trump's disruptions.

No unbelief of his frivolous lies and cheats.

 

The silence on twitter with no electricity surge and phone connectivity issues because of a storm of reaction tweets flying all over the world once Donald sent some cow shit off.

 

Waiting for speeches with biggest, greatest, best and other exaggerating attributes, loss of life value will creep in, once he left... due to the lack of self acclaiming presentations of a President on a narcissistic ride and all his offences on cultural forms and behaviour. If that wasn't historic!

 

"Believe me", "many people are saying" and "I heard from someone who told me and he was not the only one who told me",  Trump will be forgotten very soon, "bigly" forgotten if not "totally" forgotten... and then would have become one of the greatest of all that had been forgotten fast... sorry no, the greatest...

Guest dirt  smear

Oh great another forensic audit to be requested from Biden and Kamala? does the US still have sufficient forensic experts to undergo all these forensic audits?

 

Sure, that would be a good start for Biden to continue on the trail of a banana republic of US that Trump started 4 years ago.

 

I just wonder why the President elect Joe Biden is liable for monies that eventually his cocaine addicted son made profiteering from the fame of his father but without any knowledge or interference of his father, if it is true at all?

 

I assume they found more leaks and water pipe bursts at this one and only computer repair shop...

IV. THE VICE PRESIDENT’S OFFICE AND STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS WERE AWARE OF BUT IGNORED CONCERNS RELATING TO HUNTER BIDEN’S ROLE ON BURISMA’S BOARD.


a. Introduction


In early 2015, senior State Department official George Kent raised concerns to staff in the Office of the Vice President about Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. Kent testified that he never heard anything back from the vice president’s office, and although Kent advised that Hunter Biden should step down from Burisma’s board to avoid the perception of a potential conflict of interest, his recommendation was not followed.
Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board continued to be an issue State Department officials had to manage when executing U.S. / Ukraine policy. More than a year after Kent reported his concerns to the vice president’s staff, he wrote to his superiors that Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board was “very awkward” to those on the front lines pushing anticorruption efforts in Ukraine on a daily basis.25 Kent testified that he felt the need to “prepar[e] everybody for ‘what about-ism,’ because we’re pushing what’s right ... and we have to be prepared for people who are critics, are opponents, to say, ‘Well, what about? What about Hunter Biden?’”Indeed, Kent testified further that he “would have advised any American not to get on the board of Zlochevsky’s company.”The Committees are also aware of at least one other senior State Department official, Amos Hochstein, who raised concerns directly to Vice President Biden about potential conflicts of interest relating to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. Although Hochstein declined to testify about the substance of his conversation with Vice President Biden,the New Yorker reported that Hochstein “did not go so far as to recommend that Hunter leave the board.”The Committees found that neither the Office of the Vice President nor the State Department ever took any action following these complaints.

All your crap about Hunter Biden is logically ILLOGICAL.   He was a small fish compared to the Trump family who are all expert sharks in profiteering and deceiving.  Not for nothing is Trump trying to get pardons for all of them!

It is true that NEWS come from democrats,  while republicans disseminate their FAKE NEWS.

 

The fact that there has been a declining number of reporters who identify themselves as republicans is 

is a testimonial that the majority of individuals feel rejection towards lies and deceptions.

Yes, it will be a spiritual orgasm.  I have been in increasing spiritual arousal since January 6th, the day the Capitol was attacked by that scum of low-lives.  On the threshold of edging observing the progressive conquest of the Monster, now finally silenced, impeached and soon convicted.  But it will not be an orgy.  I don't belong to any group of Biden supporters, my ideology is just my own.  

 

After the 20th,  I expect my breathing to be deeper and my step more vigorous,  enjoying the new atmosphere of freedom from evil.  :)

After America was set on fire by Trump,  the evil of extinguishing the flames and rebuilding it after the criminal is gone is much, much less than what it was while he was starting new fires.

Trump and family would NEVER sell out their country for money.  Instead, they invited Russia to take possession of the US after they had destroyed it in another 4 years, so that Russia could have a big colony in America.  They also thought about making us Americans happy by changing from coca cola to vodka, and changing from that silly country music to nice Russian dances.

Don't get fooled.

The report has not been issued, confirmed, endorsed or ratified by the US Senate.

It is a report from the majority representatives of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security, which are the Republican majority members of this committee.

The report is not supported by any Democratic member of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and has not been issued by the US Senate as a whole.

 

The report are the personal investigation findings of two Republican US Senate Committee chairmen. It has the same value as if Beyoncé as chairwoman of the BLM committee wrote something about the digestive effect of applying whitening lotion onto her tits: namely zero.

 

The report has not been approved by the Senate or discussed in the Senate plenum.

 

Therefore it is just a partisan Republican report and nothing else.

The Chairman  Ron Johnson is a Republican and has been using this position to issue various one sided reports.

 

In any other country, parliamentary committees would do the prosecutors do an investigation first and not come already with a judgement prior to the prosecutor's investigation being finalised.

 

Addendum

It are two partisan Republican US Senate committee Chairman reports and nothing else.

 

This report has never been endorsed, confirmed, approved, ratified or anything by the US Senate. This Ron Johnson is just using his chair as Committee Chairman to release the report and make it look official.

This coming from a member of US Senate! It is difficult for Joe Biden to wiggle his way. But anyway, he should be fine since he has a whole army of people willing to twist and turn and distract and confuse and lie.

Guest clean as Hunter...
Elaine Chao
Elaine Chao official portrait 2.jpg
 
18th United States Secretary of Transportation
In office
January 31, 2017 – January 11, 2021
President Donald Trump
Deputy Jeffrey A. Rosen
Steven G. Bradbury (acting)
Preceded by Anthony Foxx
Succeeded by Steven G. Bradbury (acting)

 

 

 

Elaine Lan Chao (born March 26, 1953) is an American businesswoman and politician. A member of the Republican Party, Chao served as Secretary of Labor under president George W. Bush from 2001 to 2009, and as Secretary of Transportation under president Donald Trump from 2017 to 2021.

 

Born in Taipei, Taiwan, Chao immigrated to the United States when she was eight years old. Her father founded the Foremost Group, which eventually became a major shipping corporation. Chao was raised on Long Island, New York, and subsequently received degrees from Mount Holyoke College and Harvard Business School. She worked for a number of financial institutions before being appointed to several senior positions in the Department of Transportation under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, including Chair of the Federal Maritime Commission (1988–1989) and Deputy Secretary of Transportation (1989–1991).

Controversies

An October 2018 Politico analysis found that Chao had more than 290 hours of appointments which were labelled as "private" during working hours on working days in the first 14 months of her tenure as Secretary of Transportation. The hours were equivalent to seven weeks of vacation. Former Department of Transportation officials described this as unusual. Current DoT officials stated that the "private" labeling existed to help ensure Chao's security by obscuring her actual activities.[66]

Potential conflicts of interest

As Secretary of Transportation, Chao appeared in at least a dozen interviews with her father, James, a shipping magnate with extensive business interests in China.[67] Ethics experts said the appearances raised ethical concerns, as public officials are prohibited from using their office to profit others or themselves.[67] Federal disclosures cited by The New York Times revealed a gift to Chao and her husband Mitch McConnell from Chao's businessman father James, valued at between US$5 million and $25 million.[68] The company her father founded (and which her sister, Angela, currently runs), The Foremost Group, has extensive ties to the Chinese state and Chinese elites.[68] It obtained hundreds of millions of dollars worth of loans from a bank owned by the Chinese state, has substantial interests tied to a major shipyard funded by and long-term contracts with a steel producer owned by the Chinese state. In what The Times described as "a rarity for foreigners", Angela and James Chao have served on the boards of a Chinese state-owned shipbuilder, and Angela has been on the board of the Bank of China, as well as the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (which was created by the government of China).[68]

 

From January 2018 to April 2019, 72% of the total tonnage shipped by Foremost was shipped to and from China. The Foremost Group has almost no footprint in the United States other than its headquarters in New York.[68] During the period when Chao appeared with her father at promotional events for the family company, the US Department of Transportation repeatedly sought to cut funding and loan guarantees for domestic American shipping companies, shipyards, and shipbuilders. These proposed budget cuts were rejected by Congress in a bipartisan fashion.[68] Chao's Department also sought for three years to prevent funding for a program that supports the viability of small domestic US shipyards, and a separate program that issues loan guarantees for the construction or reconstruction of ships with American registration.[68]

 

Chao pledged in 2017 to sell the stock she had earned while she was on the board of directors of Vulcan Materials, one of the largest suppliers of road-paving materials in the United States,[69][70] by April 2018.[69][71] After the Wall Street Journal and other major news outlets reported in late May 2019 that she was still holding the stock, worth $250,000 to $500,000, she sold it on June 3, 2019,[71][70] for a gain of $50,000 since April 2018.[71]

 

In June 2019, Politico reported that in 2017 Chao had designated her aide Todd Inman as a special liaison "to help with grant applications and other priorities" for Transportation Department projects in the state of Kentucky, the only state to have such a liaison. Inman was to act as an intermediary between the Department, local Kentucky officials, and Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, who is Chao's husband. This resulted in grants of at least $78 million for projects in Mitch McConnell strongholds Boone County and Owensboro. Inman had worked on the 2008 and 2014 re-election campaigns of McConnell; McConnell and local officials brought up the grants when he announced in Owensboro in December 2018 that he was running for re-election in 2020. Inman later became Chao's chief of staff.[72]

 

In September 2019, the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Reform began an investigation into whether she used political office to benefit her family's business interests.[73][74] A September 16 letter from the Oversight committee to Chao documented allegations that the Department of Transportation was forced to cancel a trip to China in 2017 that Chao had planned to take because State Department ethics officials challenged her attempts to include her family members in official meetings with the Chinese government.[75]

Removal of Inspector General

In May 2020, the Trump administration removed the acting Inspector General of the Transportation Department, Mitch Behm. Behm, who was not a political appointee, was conducting an investigation into whether Secretary Elaine Chao was giving preferential treatment to projects in Kentucky. Her husband, Mitch McConnell, is the Senator of Kentucky and faced a re-election bid at the time.[76][77]

Yup, CNN, Bloomberg or MSNBC are going to be fringe media if they continue to lie. For baseball results, cannot really comment if they lie but if Trump or his family has stakes in baseball, I won’t bet against them not lying.

With only 34% approval rating, how did Trump even get 45% of the vote?

With stealing of course. But he didn't steal enough to win, that's why he's crying because he was so confident his stealing was so effective.

That's a thief crying theft, hypocrite and thick skin and shameless.

Don’t be fooled by the media reports from CNN, BBC, Reuters, New York Times as they are paid by Democrats to smear lies of Trump. Be wise and think for yourself.

 

That is the truth. All of the traditional media hate Republicans, even though they are owned by Conservatives, because they only want tax cuts. In other policies, however, they prefer to see people like the Clintons, Obamas, and Bidens in charge to generate more public outrage and make additional money for their biggest businesses.

 

The sad reality is that having Trump in office gave the media even larger profits, but they did not appreciate everything he was doing to Make America Great Again, so they threw him under the bus while helping hide the truth about how Sleepy Joe and Sleazy Hunter stole the election so they can overrun the USA with Welfare Queens.

Your preoccupation with vote count is a very superficial, very myopic view.  The question to ask is:  "What were a President's achievements after his term in office?" and not "How popular he was before he took up office?".  You can garner zillions of votes by promising the moon and the stars but ultimately it is what you have delivered that counts.  "Make America great again"?  Sure, as I have repeated the irony of greatness in terms of pandemic figures.  Through his statements of "It will go away by summer."  "Look, I'm not wearing mask." "Use antiseptic as medicine."  "Lockdowns are not the answer", he certainly has helped America achieved such "greatest".  And of course that affects the economy.  How to fight China then?


If votes are not important, how in the world Joe Biden ‘won’ the election? In 2020, Trump had already served 4 years. His votes increased from 62+million in 2016 to 74+million, a massive increase of 12+million votes. No president in history has seen such huge increase. Obama won 69+million votes in 2008, but won only 64+million votes in 2012, an appreciably and stunning drop of 5+million votes. If Trump did so badly, why would he win 12+million more votes?

Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat and mayor of Chicago is asking for her town to be opened and not continue with lockdown. A few other Democrats leaders in other towns are also wanting to end lockdowns. The timing cannot be more perfect! Joe Biden wins then no more lockdowns. Should we be slamming Lori Lightfoot and the other hypocritical Democrats?

You can win votes by appealing to ignoramuses and if you continue to rule your country with bad policies, you are leading the country into disaster even though you still have many followers worshipping you blindly.  The problem with you is your mentality, which is like a school child easily indoctrinated.  You see the world in black and white.  "Trump = good.  Biden = bad.  Republicans = good. Democrats = bad."  Why?  Because someone told you so and you refuse to see things objectively.  "China is the greatest mortal enemy."  Why?  Because Western media tells you so and you believe.

 

There are always rotten apples here and there, so stop thinking in dichotomy.  Not all Republicans are bad and not all Democrats are good.  Obama has his flaws too.  You are too obsessed in finding fault with Biden & Democrats at the expense of considering reality.  Since I have asked you thrice to explain how the fantastically popular votes for Trump came about and you failed to answer each time, this video shows you the explanation by the political expert Kishore Mahbubani:

 

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JHRcW-jZkJo

 

Hero worshipping is natural but worshipping the wrong undeserving hero is a grave mistake.

You can sway opinion that winning more votes is not a reflection of support and recognition by appealing to the ignoramuses. You will lead the country to disaster if you discredit and lie about good policies to ultimately vote a good President out of office and install a seriously compromised one in. One whose son has unresolved dealings with China, Russia and Iran. 
 

We don’t have to depend on Western media to tell us China is bad. When China refuses to abide by international laws and got their own map out to claim ownership of nearly the entire South China Sea, or when they withhold your military tanks when you said bad about them, you don’t need much prompting from any media to tell you how these actions are bad. 
 

Did Kishore Mahbubani lose his job in US when the administrations before Trump put in disastrous policies to that resulted in massive jobs losses? Who pays Kishore? Does he have an agenda? Is he eligible to vote in US?
 

Trump fantastically popular votes came from people who recognised his good work such as having unprecedented and historic peace deals in the Middle East, lowest overall unemployment numbers in 50years, lowest African-American unemployment numbers in nearly 50years, starting no new wars, bringing back American soldiers from conflicts that do not concerned them.

50 to 50 in the Senate is not a majority.

 

The 50 Republicans can still reject everything and nothing is resolved.

 

For any dispute they would need to call in VP Harris. But that is not possible.

 

The danger lies as well if one Senator is not present or sick, then even the VP Harris having the casting vote will not help.

 

Hopefully, the Democrats may win more seats in 2022.

Bernie Sanders as an Independent has disappointed many Presidents previously.

 

And he is often an angry old man like others... even here... 🤣

You also need to open more your eyes to reality.

 

50 to 50 in the Senate plus the vice president IS majority.  One clue is the Senate Majority Leader This lieder will be a democrat, Schuster.  And nothing prevents the VP Harris to come to the Senate to break a tie as many times as she pleases.  She knows quite well her way around the Senate.

 

I don't know your age,  but you don't appear to be a youngster that thinks he is so superior to those angry old men.  I will ask for your forgiveness, but if the choice is between you and Bernie Sanders, I will trust one hundred times more the wisdom, the judgement, the experience of Sanders over your opinion. The 'angry' you see in Sanders is simply his face that I assume is more wrinkled than yours. You should be old enough to realize that healthy old people have an intellectual and emotional advantage over younger people.  Even here at BW!  :) 

 

 

Here, Steve the background. 50 to 50 in the Senate is not a majority. While the Vice president can decide the vote on a draw, she cannot interfere on internal Senate rules and procedures, e.g. what makes it into the hearing list, what is voted on, who chairs the committees etc. and when a debate is going to close. For the latter you need 60 senators to close the debate. Means VP Harris has to be on close stand by or with very fast feet to run from the white house to congress.. ha ha. I bet we won't see her with high heels the next 2 years but with sport shoes.

 

Both leaders of the two parties must come to an agreement to resolve how it works. If not filibustering will come into play again and delaying decisions. Last time when there was a 50 to 50 split (in 2001) both parties were able to conclude a "power sharing agreement". Mitch McConnell will still have some say during this time and after and has to meet much more often with Schumer than before.

 

Here is a good overview how it works:

 

The first hurdle is the organizing resolution

Incoming Democratic Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer and outgoing Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have to agree on a set of rules, known as an organizing resolution, which governs how the Senate works. The organizing resolution determines everything from committee membership and staff budgets, to who gets the best office space.

 

Even with Harris’s tie-breaking vote, Schumer will need McConnell’s support: passing the organizing resolution requires 60 votes. As a result, Republicans will likely end up with much more power than a minority would usually hold.

The last time the Senate was split 50-50, in 2001, lawmakers agreed on an organizing resolution that allowed both parties to share power. Under that deal, the parties agreed to split committee memberships and staff equally and changed the rules, making it so that if a tie vote prevented a measure from moving out of committee, either the majority or the minority leader could bring the bill to the Senate floor.

 

Schumer and McConnell may take a cue from that 2001 agreement, but Senate observers note that, in these hyper-partisan times, agreeing on even the rules of the road may be tricky. “As partisan as it was in 2000, things have become even more partisan,” says Sarah Binder, a senior fellow in governance studies at the Brookings Institution.

 

Here the last discussion: (For the start of the new Senate sessions nothing is yet resolved).

McConnell and Schumer still at odds over power-sharing agreement

From CNN's Manu Raju 19/01/2021

Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer are still trying to hash out an agreement on their power-agreement, which will detail how committees are structured and provide general guidance of how the 50-50 Senate will operate.

There are still several sticking points, according to multiple sources.

One sticking point: ensuring that the filibuster remains intact, which McConnell is demanding.

Schumer doesn't have the votes to gut the filibuster, since several centrist Democrats have rejected calls to use the nuclear option to reduce the threshold from 60 votes to 51.

But as part of these talks, McConnell is asking Schumer to reassure the GOP that they won't seek to do away with the potent stall tactic in the Democratic majority.

Schumer, in a statement from his spokesperson, indicated that he wants the power-sharing agreement to mirror the 2001 deal that was struck to govern how the 50-50 Senate operated. Schumer's spokesperson asserted that the Democratic leader wants to keep "extraneous changes" out of the power-sharing agreement.

Next area of research to the amount of overseas delegations headed by the outgoing President, which will be not so many,  will be the amount of turnover in the government positions.

 

Even if you leave out the last three months or the resignations after the Capitol storming, Trump will have had the highest turnover in the upper government levels of all Presidents.

 

Reporters, researchers or historians will soon focus on these topics.

Biden  to  Propose  8-year  Citizenship  Path  for  Immigrants

President-elect Joe Biden plans to unveil a sweeping immigration bill on Day One of his administration, hoping to provide an 8-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. without legal status, a massive reversal from the Trump administration's harsh immigration policies.

 

https://www.mail.com/int/news/us/10468906-biden-to-propose-8-year-citizenship-path-immigrant.html

 

“Biden allies and even some Republicans have identified immigration as a major issue where the new administration could find common ground with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and enough other GOP senators to avoid the stalemate that has vexed administrations of both parties for decades.

 

So it's 5 + 3 = 8

 

If one can judge a person by his intentions and actions,  then I am so glad to have again a President with a good heart, a person who feels empathy for others.

 

Yesterday I drove over 600 kilometers through Texas to visit my son and get a Corona-19 shot.  How was the landscape?  Mostly empty land.  A few trees, some cows in the huge pastures,  some horses, some country houses here and there...  It is not a desert, it is land that can be fertile.   Why should this land remain unused, when there are thousands of refugees on the southern border of the US who are desperate to find a place to remake their lives?

 

In one of the wrong turns of destiny, the highest authority in the country was given to a person full of malevolence and racist hate who stated that those refugees from the South are mostly criminals.  Now we saw conclusive evidence that the real criminals exist within, not only the white supremacists that attacked the government the other days, but many of the millions who had voted for this malignant ruler.  Let's hope that with the needed reform of immigration, thousands more immigrants can find refuge in this land that should be accepting them, because they are valuable!

 

Meanwhile,  a long standing humanitarian action that the outgoing malevolent administration refused to deal with  is ready to be addressed now.  11 million individuals who are living in unnecessary hardship because...  because they didn't receive some papers legalizing their status as immigrants,  and therefore...  they don't LEGALY EXIST!  Imagine living under such conditions, with constant fear of being found and deported, even after having formed family roots in this country!  "Legal" here does not reflect a Law of Nature.  It reflects a somewhat capricious decision of a few people in power who have the authority to discriminate!  And it shows here the evil of getting the wrong people in power. 

 

I am confident that a wave of goodness will descend on America once this long standing injustice is resolved.  Eleven million (!) people who will be transformed from "criminals", like the evil call them,  to perfectly legal individuals recognized as residents and eventually new citizens of this great country.

Trump departs Washington a pariah as his era in power ends

Updated 1130 GMT (1930 HKT) January 20, 2021

 

 

Donald Trump leaves the White House for the last time before Biden's  inauguration - Mirror Online

 

Donald Trump's era in Washington is over.

The all-consuming, camera-hungry, truth-starved era that fixated the nation and exposed its darkest recesses officially concludes at noon Wednesday. The President, addled and mostly friendless, will end his time in the capital a few hours early to spare himself the humiliation of watching his successor be sworn in.
 
He departs a city under militarized fortification meant to prevent a repeat of the riot he incited earlier this month. He leaves office with more than 400,000 Americans dead from a virus he chose to downplay or ignore.
 
For his opponents, Trump's departure amounts to a blissful lifting of a four-year pall on American life and the end to a tortured stretch of misconduct and indignities. Even many of Trump's onetime supporters are sighing with relief that the White House, and the psychology of its occupant, may no longer rest at the center of the national conversation.
 
At least some of the 74 million Americans who voted for Trump in November are sad to see him go. Scores of them attempted an insurrection at the US Capitol this month to prevent it from happening at all. The less violent view him as a transformative President whose arrival heralded an end to political correctness and whose exit marks a return to special treatment for immigrants, gays and minorities.
 
Donald Trump leaves the White House: 'It's been a great honor, the honor of  a lifetime' - pennlive.com
 
One thing Trump's presidency undoubtedly accomplished: revealing in stark fashion the racist, hate-filled, violent undercurrents of American society that many had chosen previously to ignore. It became impossible to overlook as Trump's presidency concluded with violent riots of White nationalists and neo-Nazis at the Capitol.
 
The violent mob attack on the citadel of American democracy capped a presidency built upon disregard for democratic norms, antagonizing government institutions and willful ignorance of the far right's violent and racist tendencies. It will amount to the lasting legacy of a President whose blatant neglect of the truth, in ways both casual and immense, drove the nation to the brink.
 
There is no evidence the President has reckoned with the consequences of his actions; the opposite appears to be true. He came to regret a concession video he had recorded at the urging of his family and advisers, who told him he was seriously close to being removed from office. In his first comments after the riot, he refused blame for it and insisted, falsely, that nobody believed his words ahead of it were at fault.
 
The events caused an already reclusive President, who had mostly given up running the country after losing the election, to retreat further. His near-silence was helped along by a permanent ban from Twitter, his long-preferred method of communication, a move that propelled him to rage.
 
Freshly impeached for a second time, this time with support from a few Republicans, Trump ends his term with the lowest approval rating of his tenure. Republicans remain divided on whether he represents the future of their party. He's been shunned by senior leaders in Congress, who were left aghast at his incitement of a mob that sent them running for safety inside the Capitol.
 
In his final days, Trump has been surrounded by a shrinking circle of associates, many of them decades younger. Old friends who used to speak with him regularly said they can no longer reach him -- both literally, because he is refusing their calls, and figuratively, because those who are patched through describe a man lost in denial and detached from reality.
 
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump leave the White House for the last time in his term Jan. 20, 2021.
 
He even had a falling-out with his vice president, Mike Pence, whose characteristic fealty was severed after he heard nothing from Trump while mobs appeared to be hunting him during the insurrection attempt. The two men went for days without speaking after Trump uttered a vulgar curse because Pence refused to unilaterally overturn the election results.
 
They appeared to reconcile, but other senior Republicans began breaking with the President, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican. Ten Republicans voted for his impeachment in the most bipartisan impeachment vote in history. While only two months ago Trump seemed assured of dominant influence within the GOP going forward, he has squandered at least some of his sway in his ignoble final acts as President. Now, enraged and seeking revenge, Trump has raised the idea of starting a new political party in recent days, a senior adviser said.
 
Instead of attending his successor's inauguration, Trump is departing the White House early to attend a military-style sendoff at Joint Base Andrews. He balked at the idea of leaving Washington an ex-president and did not particularly relish the thought of requesting use of the presidential aircraft from Biden. He is expected to be ensconced in his South Florida club when he officially becomes an ex-president at noon.
 
Trump is the first president in 150 years to stage such a boycott. While Pence will attend Biden's swearing-in, other members of Trump's family, including wife Melania and daughter Ivanka, will be absent. The decision is emblematic of a presidency animated by Trump's highly fragile ego and run by officials whose chief concern was managing Trump's feelings.
 
Trump enters his post-presidency facing swirling legal matters and with the fate of his business empire in doubt. He will retreat for now to his private Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, where he has established residency, though there are questions of whether he'll be allowed to live there permanently.
 
Without some of the protections afforded him by the presidency, Trump will become vulnerable to multiple investigations looking into possible fraud in his financial business dealings as a private citizen. He faces defamation lawsuits sparked by his denials of women's allegations that he assaulted them. And then there are claims he corrupted the presidency for his personal profit.
 
Even as he exits the White House, there is little question that Trump's shadow will cloud the capital for the foreseeable future. The matter of his impeachment still lingers in the Senate, which will begin a trial after Biden is sworn in. And Trump's influence on his party's direction going forward will amount to a reckoning for conservatives, who now must decide whether theirs is the party of a president who incited an insurrection on his way out of office.
 
Trump has left the Republican Party in civil war. Its leadership remains handpicked by the outgoing President and many of its newest faces are acolytes and beneficiaries of Trump's willingness to break with political norms. But others -- including both those who worked for him and those who have long warned of his dangers -- would rather Trump disappear forever, relegated to fringe politics and zoning disputes in Palm Beach.
 
The likelihood that happens seems slim. Trump has amassed hundreds of millions of dollars in a leadership PAC formed after the election that he will be able to use for future political activity, including boosting candidates. There are few restrictions on how the money can be used.
 
Whether he runs again himself also remains an open question; when he lost in November he signaled to those around him that he was likely to attempt a return to the White House in four years. But since then, officials have cast doubt on his intentions, suggesting instead he was more interested in keeping the potential 2024 GOP field in limbo rather than seriously contemplating another run.
 

Legacy in tatters

The results of Trump's presidency are not particularly mixed. While there have been some achievements -- a reshaped Supreme Court, a dismantled regulatory state and the brokering of diplomatic achievements in the Middle East -- Trump's overarching legacy is one of division and rancor capped by the catastrophic events of January 6, when he had 14 days left in his term.
 
From nearly the day he entered office, aides wondered whether he actually enjoyed the job of being president, its mundane daily tasks hardly a fit for a man who had never served in government, did not have much of an attention span and had previously expressed little interest in, say, health care policy or nuclear arms treaties.
 
"This is more work than in my previous life," he told Reuters 100 days into the job. "I thought it would be easier."
Trump had spent his previous decades cultivating a public profile as a savvy businessman and larger-than-life New York City mogul, despite a succession of bankruptcies and collapses. His second act as a reality television star with a penchant for race-baiting conspiracies (such as questioning President Barack Obama's birthplace) led into his third act as president, and along with it an eye toward artifice and spectacle.

Trump's experience as president was regularly frustrated by the limitations of the executive branch; steps he wanted to take were either illegal or met resistance from Democrats, who took control of the House of Representatives two years into his term.
 
Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Trump's ties to Russia proved an immense distraction that preoccupied both the President and his White House. It resulted in the convictions of several Trump associates, many of whom he pardoned.
 
Instead of rising to the difficulties, Trump amended the job to fit his own liking. He mostly skipped reading lengthy intelligence documents, preferring in-person briefings that on some occasions left out important information about which Trump would later claim ignorance.
 
After attending most of the yearly world leader summits his first year in office and finding them a bore, Trump skipped the ones he deemed skippable in subsequent years, including the ASEAN summit at which America's presence had been traditionally seen as a counterweight to China.
 
Most tragically, Trump showed little interest in leading the nation through the coronavirus pandemic, self-styling himself a "wartime leader" for a few days before reverting to downplaying the crisis and eventually pretending it did not exist. Even his own serious bout with the disease, which left him struggling to breathe and hospitalized, only seemed to strengthen his resolve to ignore it.
 
The more colorful trappings of the job interested him more. A fateful invitation to attend Bastille Day in Paris in 2017 turned Trump on to the thrills of a military parade, which he unsuccessfully lobbied for in Washington for another three years. He produced political spectacles at the Lincoln Memorial, Mount Rushmore and on the White House South Lawn, trampling presidential norms along the way.
 
But as he ran a dark and bitter campaign for reelection last year, even many of his advisers wondered whether he really wanted to serve another four years in office. He ignored entreaties on adjusting his political approach to better appeal to women and seniors, insisting throughout that what propelled him to power in 2016 -- anti-immigrant race-baiting, stoking of class grievances and general fear-mongering -- would work again.
 
He never adjusted to the reality that "Make America Great Again" lost its luster when uttered by an incumbent who'd already had four years to deliver. And amid a life-altering pandemic, he did not seize the opportunity to actually lead the nation through its most trying stretch in memory.
 
Now, the capital and the country, led by President Joe Biden, go about the work of picking up the pieces.

In a painfully fitting end to his presidency, Donald Trump took off on Air Force One as Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” played on the tarmac.
Here’s a sample of the lyrics from the famous song: “Regrets, I’ve had a few / But then again, too few to mention / I did what I had to do / And saw it through without exemption ... But more, much more than this / I did it my way”.

IT HAPPENED !!!

 

I just finished watching the Biden Inaugural Ceremony.  This hour was one of the happiest I had lately.  And it came with some emotions.  I felt deep in my bones the difference from dark to Light,  from night to Day.  Biden did great,  he read his speech flawlessly and he sounded sincere.  We will hear plenty of his voice in the future, which I find pleasing. 

 

Also enjoyable was the singing and... oh, the dress... of Lady Gaga.   It was also touching the reciting of the black "poet" whose name I don't remember.  And... I was also satisfied with the sermons of the two priests who spoke.  One outstanding characteristic of the event was its diversity.  One can be confident that Biden will do plenty to promote diversity and help the minorities. 

 

One item that shined bright, bright for its absence was The Monster.   With a renewed feeling of well being one can imagine this person whose name I am starting to forget as some actor in a nightmare, and for what concerns me he might have fallen from the planet and is slowly drifting away in a weight-less, dark empty interstellar space,  having his corpse discovered light-years away by an alien civilization, who might disintegrate it into its constituent sub-atomic particles for its strong smell of evil.

 

Let's look forward to this coming four years!  :)

Me too.  Maybe the courts could challenge them?  The Department of Justice under new leadership could examine them and judge if they were an abuse of power,  and challenge them all the way up to the Supreme Court?   This highest court has never passed judgment on the pardon power of the president.  Maybe it could be time to set some limits to it,  like eliminate any preemptive pardons, which don't make sense anyway.

Biden says Trump left him a 'very generous letter' before departing White House

 

President Joe Biden said Wednesday that former President Donald Trump left him a "very generous letter" before departing the White House.

 

Biden, speaking from the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office after signing Day One executive orders, said he would not immediately reveal the contents of the letter out of respect for Trump.
 
"The President wrote a very generous letter," Biden told reporters. "Because it was private, I will not talk about it until I talk to him, but it was generous."
 
 
 
Breaking News : Content of Trump's letter revealed:
 
 
Dear Sleepy Joe,
 
Congrats, you finally made it in the last months of your life to become POTUS. What the heck was the formula used to flip the voting machines in the Swing States? Looks like ours didn't work as well as yours. 
 
As you know the banks stripped me of all of my bank accounts and I am expecting some funds from this China virus Xi Jinping, from Russia's RasPutin and various other dictators. Currently I can't cash in the monies to my account.
 
I thought I can use the black accounts of your son Hunter, would be great if he has one on the British Virgin Islands, because I got 10 different currency accounts there.
 
As a generous gesture I would pay you a commission fee of 5% of the funds for helping me out. Greatly appreciated.
 
I might need the help of your son Hunter for some other investments and will contact you after a break at Mar el Lago.
 
And if you wonder what the button at the wall left of your desk is for: if you press the button, then a huge 292 inch TV screen will appear. It helped me during my term to watch TV from 9am to 1am. I won't tell anyone.
