– Editor’s Note:
Serving as Yelm’s Democratic Area Caucus Coordinator (ACC) in March 2016 and a Bernie Sanders liberal devotee, I salute and congratulate the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump!
He IS this country’s President and enunciated clearly from where we have come, where we are, and his vision of the way forward – the time has arrived for America being used as a pawn by “The Establishment” for world domination to end today, to end now!
“America First” – A new day for our country begins now!
– Light rain began falling during the inauguration, put in perfect perspective:
The Reverend Franklin Graham noted the significance of the rain during the inauguration:
“Mr. President, in the Bible, rain is a sign of God’s blessing. And it started to rain, Mr. President, when you came to the platform. And it’s my prayer that God will bless you, your family, your administration, and may He bless America.”
– Blessings to The President, his family, and team!
And THANK YOU to President Obama and his family for their service to our country!

“How Jimmy Carter Beat Cancer and Became the Oldest President to Attend an Inauguration
“Former President Jimmy Carter’s attendance at Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday makes him the oldest former commander-in-chief to attend a presidential inauguration ceremony—a fact made more remarkable by his recovery from a cancer diagnosis less than two years ago,” Katie Reilly, TIME.com.
President Carter flew commercial to Washington, D.C. from Atlanta via Delta Airlines, his home-state-based Georgia carrier.
