It has actually happened. I couldn't get it out of my head that somebody would somehow put a stop to it. President-elect Donald Trump really has now become Donald Trump, the Forty-Fifth President of the
States. In the days running up to the
inauguration I felt increasingly tense. You can hear it when I talk about Trump
on this radio show: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2017/01/ben-emlyn-jones-on-enemy-within-radio-25.html.
Would he survive to his inauguration day without being shot, or having a plane
crash or "heart attack"? A light aircraft crash is traditional for
those who cross the Clintons. Of
course that could well still happen and I can't remain tense for four to eight
years. It makes little difference politically if Trump were assassinated before
or after his inauguration; he had been elected by the people and that is what
really matters. However I felt it was symbolically and emotionally significant
for him to read the oath and formally become the new president. This really is
the finish line of this long, hard race of multiple hurdles. We have Brexit and
Trump rubber-stamped. It is done; nothing can take that away from us. Yesterday
I got home from work and switched on the television. I had some beers in the
fridge and chips in the oven and I settled down to watch. Trump had been in since the previous evening where he had
laid a wreath at the Washington
DC where President Kennedy is
buried with the eternal flame of the Illuminati burning on his tomb. At the same time
some of Trump's supporters led by Milo Yiannopoulos held an alt-right
"Deplora-Ball" to celebrate. Yesterday morning when he woke up Trump
went to church and then headed for the Capitol with his family to be sworn in.
He read out the oath of office with his hand placed on George Washington's
Masonic bible: "I, Donald John Trump,
do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the
Cemetery , and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the
Constitution of the United
States . So help me God." Then the band
played Hail to the Chief for the
first time, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPH93HrSGtE.
After that the new president made a speech, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcfrbB9hpoI.
I breathed a sigh of relief. I immediately Tweeted: "ALL HAIL THE GOD
EMPEROR TRUMP AND DEATH TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER! (I hope)" See below. After
that the president and his family retired to the dining room for a top-class
luncheon and then, as per tradition, walked to the White House as part of a
parade. A huge number of well-wishers gathered in the Mall and along the
streets to witness the inauguration. At the White House there was another
pageant. Marchers from the armed forces, police and other organizations trooped
past. The emergency services were among them... but no hospital porters
unfortunately, or "orderlies" as they're called in United States America.
There were even some farmers in their tractors, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sxr9nE9MuQs.
The inauguration of President Trump has stolen the headlines all over the world, with a few exceptions such as on
Here is their local newspaper for the 20th of January: http://independent.saint.fm/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/20170120.pdf.
On an island so small and isolated, the goings on in the outside world must
feel very distant and ephemeral. Along with the celebrations there has been an
unprecedented level of protest. Last night the streets of were occupied by rioters. This kind of
disorder has been commonplace since Trump was elected, but it has never been
this bad. A fire was started in the middle of a road and people wearing the
famous red Trump hats were attacked. All across the world today there are so-called
"women's marches" going on. Two hundred thousand people are protesting
DC Washington and they have been
joined in solidarity by events in other countries. The women's march in London
ended at the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square
to express their concerns about Trump's alleged bad attitude to women's rights,
gay rights, black people's rights, nuclear weapons, climate change and
immigration. There were similar events in Glasgow,
Edinburgh and Manchester.
The Edinburgh one is picketing the
US Consulate there at the time of writing. The singer Lily Allen joined the London
one. It's ironic that if Hillary Clinton had beaten Trump to the Oval Office
then all those matters, except climate change, would have been under far
greater threat; as I've explained before, see background links below. Despite
their name, "male allies" have been welcomed on the women's marches.
However I wonder what the organizers really think of the men who support them; my
criticism of feminism leads me to think, not a lot. Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-38700123
Now we shall find out who Donald J Trump really is. Already he is making very
different noises to the ones he made on his campaign trail that make me fear he
has been compromised. He has appointed people to his cabinet who he really
shouldn't trust; including Mitt Romney, a man who previously denounced Trump as
a "con man" in the primaries. John Bolton was nominated by Trump as
his secretary of state, and might still get the job. However Bolton
is a rabid neoconservative and was George W Bush's ambassador to the United
Nations. He is one of the architects of the "War on Terror" and a
member of the Project for a New American Century, see: http://hpanwo.blogspot.co.uk/2009/08/project-for-new-american-century.html.
Trump is not going to pursue any criminal prosecution of Hillary Clinton; what
happened to "lock her up!"? He has also made several contradictory
statements about America's
relationship with Israel.
He spoke at an American Israel Public Affairs Committee- AIPAC meeting and
said: "What's it like to talk to somebody you can't buy?" Yet at the
same time he is acting all cosy with several American Zionist lobby groups, see: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/may/20/donald-trump-sheldon-adelson-israel-trip-campaign-donation.
We'll have to watch Trump closely because there are worrying indicators that he
is currently being absorbed into the establishment that he has never been a
part of before. Unless this is another one of his tricks. It is wise never to
underestimate Trump. He is extraordinarily intelligent, cunning and resourceful.
His lifetime's experience as a hard-nosed businessman has made him a formidable
opponent for anybody. This is why when I Tweeted what I did yesterday I put in
brackets "I hope". Time will tell, but I think he deserves a chance. Will
the presidency of Donald Trump become another confirmation of my
"springtime in Narnia" theory? We'll have to wait and see.
