Trump Takes Power....Riots Promptly Begin

We live in a special and amazing country.  Every 4 years or so, the most powerful man in the country steps aside and hands all his power to another man.

Sometimes the people don't like the new guy....but typically the nation stays pretty civil about it and life goes on as it did yesterday.

But this election revealed some deep divisions among us....and the liberals whose candidate lost are not so sure they want to cede power to Donald J. Trump and all the other Republicans who so handily won last November.

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump's Inauguration Day festivities triggered a wave of turbulent demonstrations, dissent and dozens of arrests Friday as protesters brought traffic to a crawl in the nation's capital.

After a night of chaotic clashes between police and protesters, violence erupted again in the city's downtown, about five blocks from the presidential parade route.

Dozens of protesters — some self-described "anarchists" dressed in black and wearing masks — damaged businesses at 10:30 a.m. ET just before Trump's swearing-in ceremony got underway, Metropolitan police said.

Authorities arrested 95 people — some charged with rioting — in the Franklin Park area and acting Police Chief Peter Newsham said there was "significant damage" to at least four businesses. Two police officers suffered minor injuries as protesters flung bricks, trash cans and other objects, and ignited small fires.

"I saw one guy, he was like pushing a cop, kind of antagonizing him, and the cop with the riot shield was banging him back," Johnny Silvercloud, a freelance journalist who was photographing protesters, told NBC News.

Despite the arrests, the demonstrations continued through the afternoon, and police used pepper spray and flash-bang grenades to hold back the crowds, refusing to let people closer to the parade route.

What is largely a day of jubilation for the new president has been defined by mass protests that are expected to strengthen through the weekend. A Women's March on Washington set for Saturday is expected to draw 200,000 protesters — a number that Inaugural Historian Jim Bendat said could break records.

The protesters chanted and carried signs — many attacking Trump or making other political and social statements, including "Not my president," "No Islamophobia" and "Black Lives Matter."


Please remember to pray for Trump and his entire team and please pray for USA.

It has been such a blessing to grow up in this country....but most of us over the age of 40 realize this is not the same country we grew up in.  Atheists and their godless agenda have taken hold of this nation.  We are watching churches fold up, forced removal of crosses from cemeteries and the false belief take root that "all paths lead to god."

What used to be considered "wrong" just 10-15 years ago is now called "right".

What used to be called "evil" is now called "good".

The atheists and globalists can't stand Donald Trump because he refuses to accept their message and their agenda.  Because of this, the protests have already begun and as usual, they are burning things and breaking things....just like we would expect from the frustrated brats they are.
