Here’s How America’s First Outsider President Set a Precedent for Inaugurations

The Washington establishment was stunned. A political outsider with few connections in the nation’s capital, but wide national celebrity among the American people, was going to be the next president of the United States. Washington, D.C., residents were unprepared for the wild scene that was about to unfold when the new president’s advocates—and a few detractors—poured into the city. Some compared this enormous mass of people to an invading barbarian horde pillaging Rome. This scene may sound familiar in 2017, but it describes Andrew Jackson’s inaugural celebration in 1829. At the time, such large-scale fanfare at an inauguration was unprecedented.

Student Group Sues After Members Arrested for Handing Out Copies of Constitution

Student members of the Young Americans for Liberty chapter at Kellogg Community College are suing their school after they were arrested for passing out copies of the U.S. Constitution. The group says that on Sept. 20, 2016, KCC students Michelle Gregoire, Brandon Withers, and three others were in an open area in front of KCC’s Binda Performing Arts Center handing out pocket Constitutions and talking with students about YAL. The students allege in their federal lawsuit that campus administrators and security approached them and told them they were violating the school’s Solicitation Policy because they were passing out the Constitution copies without prior approval. They were also informed they could not engage in such activity at that particular location. The students allege that an administrator told them that “engaging [students] in conversation on … Read entire article »

Pro-Life Women Explain Why They’re Still Going to the Women’s March

On Saturday, the day after the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, thousands of women are expected to gather in the nation’s capital for the Women’s March on Washington. The march was founded on principles of diversity, dignity, and inclusion. But over the course of the past few days, several pro-life groups have been ousted as partners due to their position on abortion. Despite this, pro-life women tell The Daily Signal they’ll still attend the historic march. Watch the video to hear why.

Amid Republican Criticism, Obama Defends Chelsea Manning Commutation

President Barack Obama used his final press conference to defend his decision to commute the sentence of former Army Pfc. Chelsea Manning, formerly known as Bradley Manning. “Chelsea Manning has served a tough prison sentence, so the notion that the average person who was thinking about disclosing vital classified information would think that it goes unpunished—I don’t think [that person] would get that impression from the sentence that Chelsea Manning has served,” Obama said. In 2013, Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking over 700,000 confidential military documents to WikiLeaks. >>> Obama’s Commutation of Manning Sentence Sends a Horrible Message to Service Personnel (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Republicans in Congress, however, are raising an outcry. House Speaker Paul Ryan called the decision “outrageous” and said that Obama’s decision could set a pattern … Read entire article »

Trump’s Choice for EPA Chief Wants to Partner With, Not Punish, States

President-elect Donald Trump’s pick to run the Environmental Protection Agency explained how he would make cooperating with the states a priority of the department during a Wednesday hearing on Capitol Hill. Scott Pruitt, the Oklahoma attorney general, stressed “cooperative federalism” would be his guiding philosophy in running the EPA, meaning he wants the often controversial agency to work with states. “Cooperative federalism is at the heart of many of the environmental statutes that have been passed by this body,” Pruitt told the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. “The reason for that is that it’s the states, many times, that have the resources, the expertise, and understanding what the unique challenges are for the environment in improving our water and our air.” “It was Republicans who created the EPA under an executive … Read entire article »

Trump Inauguration Protesters Dishonor Long-Held Principle

More than any other political act, the orderly transfer of power from one administration to another at a presidential inauguration demonstrates convincingly that we are a nation of laws and not of men. Even with the closest of outcomes and the losing side’s understandable disappointment—and even anger—victor and vanquished normally pledge to work together for the common good. Unfortunately, a coalition of left-wing radicals has now pledged to do all that it can to disrupt Donald Trump’s inauguration, including blocking streets and perhaps bridges, preventing people from assembling along the parade route, spreading false “news” about the ceremony’s participants and their remarks, and pledging a “permanent opposition” to the Trump presidency. One newspaper referred to the left’s “post-election frenzy of fundraising, war rooms, protests and social media hysteria.” (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); This radical left … Read entire article »

Scott Pruitt Provides an Opportunity to Rein in a Rogue EPA

Protesters with megaphones are making a lot of noise over the confirmation of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. But Pruitt and others concerned about an agency that has grossly exceeded its statutory authority and threatened individual liberty are giving a bigger megaphone to voices all over the country that need to be heard. They’re providing a voice to the family the EPA fined $75,000 per day for placing gravel on virtually dry land. They’re standing up for the farmers (like this cranberry farmer), ranchers, and homebuilders worried about the authority seized by the EPA in the Waters of the United States rule, which could destroy their way of life. And they’re aiming to protect the small businesses and families across the country facing higher energy bills as … Read entire article »

Voters Approve of Bible in Inaugural Ceremony

Donald Trump will be sworn in as president of the United States today on Abraham Lincoln’s Bible, the same one used by President Obama for both of his inaugurations. Voters strongly support the longstanding tradition of presidents swearing in on the Bible. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 75% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s appropriate to have the president place his hand on the Bible when taking the oath of office at the inauguration, a tradition dating back to President George Washington. Just 15% do not, while 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) (Want a free daily e-mail update? If it’s in the news, it’s in our polls).

Please Stop the Fear and Loathing of 2017 By Ted Rall

I admit it: it’s hard to find empathy for the liberal Democrats who supported Hillary Clinton and are now shocked, shocked, shocked that that horrible man Donald Trump is about to become president.

Chris Matthews’ leg thrill withdrawal symptoms have him seeing visions of Hitler after Trump’s ‘America first’ speech

**Written by Doug Powers Now that his “tingle” is gone for good, delirium tremens sparked by rapid withdrawal of Hope & Change elixir caused MSNBC’s Chris Matthews to have visions of Hitler during Trump’s inaugural address and to wonder what other world leaders must think: CHRIS MATTHEWS: And that would be — but I’m thinking, when [President Trump] said today, America first, it was not just the racial, I mean I shouldn’t say racial, the Hitlerian background to it, but it was the message I kept thinking. What does [U.K. Prime Minister] Theresa May think of this when she picks up the papers? What did he just say? He said America first. What happened to special relationship?
