Why Trump’s Inauguration Speech Made History in a Good Way

Christian economist and social critic Gary North praises Donald Trump’s speech in the following article. I would agrew with him that from the white male perspective the speech was damn good. However, there are millions of lesbians, fags, snowflakes, and nonwhites who would disagree. If they take control of history, Trump will be obliterated from the American collective memory.

Donald Trump’s inaugural address is going to go down in history as one of the great ones.

I say this as a man with 59 years of public speaking experience and a Ph.D. in American history.

There have only been three inaugural addresses that have come down through the ages. The first was Lincoln’s second inaugural, with the phrase: “. . . with malice towards none, with charity for all.” The second was Franklin Roosevelt’s first inaugural: “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” The third was John Kennedy’s: “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” These are legendary phrases.

But Trump’s speech was different from any previous inaugural address. He spoke directly to his political base. He did not try to pull the country together in some kind of vague, pie-in-the-sky, common-ground political rhetoric. He threw down the gauntlet from the very beginning. Standing in front of the Capitol building, surrounded by former Presidents and politicians, he said that everything they had done in the past has been a way to extract power from the American people and to feather their own nests. This, of course, is exactly what they have done. Nobody had ever said this before in an inaugural address.

He made it clear that this is a turning point. Again, always in the past inaugural addresses have called for unity. He did not call for unity in general. He called for unity on his terms, governed by his agenda. He called for the transfer of power from the halls of Washington back to the people. The rhetoric was confrontational to a degree that I would not have expected.

Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have bore the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment.

It belongs to you.

He took no prisoners. He offered no olive branch. He used the media to go directly to his political base. This was basically an extension of what he does on Twitter every day.

The media and the establishment have never dealt with anything like this before. Technologically, it could not have been done before 2004. Ideologically, no one wanted to do it. But he just did it.

This is populism, pure and simple. No populist has ever had the opportunity to deliver a populist inaugural address.

I think the inaugural address is going to bite him. He made promises that he will not be able to keep. The Washington political structure, let alone the Washington bureaucracy, will not let his promises come true. But at least in full public view, he announced them. He made it clear what he expects to be able to accomplish as President, and he promised not to betray the people — his political base.

Trump walked into the lion’s den and stared down the lions. He did it once, he will do it again.

  2. While I dislike and don’t trust the thumper, I’m glad to see his enemies grinding themselves into hysterical mish mash as they get in each other’s way screaming for their “rights.”

  3. So many Antifa/Anarchist/Commie/ZOG/Welfare/Trans types in the protests. Any person who sees this representation of the Left—even Leftist normies—should shudder at what awaits us when this army gets true power in the West. There will be rivers of blood as Enoch Powell suggested…

  4. Unbelievable what a COPY CAT Obama is. He gave yet ANOTHER farewell speech *AFTER* Trump’s Inauguration speech. Since Trump’s speech has been hailed as one about US, the citizens, & not about HIM as a politician/leader, that puppet Obama’s last speech copied Trump. SMH! Get this…

    “…Obama delivered his final farewell speech FOLLOWING the presidential inauguration on Friday, January 20, telling the gathered crowd … that “it has ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT YOU.” … “Throughout this process, Michelle and I, we’ve just been YOUR frontmen and women … We’ve just been YOUR face and voice. But this has NOT BEEN ABOUT US. It has ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT YOU. And all the amazing things that have happened in the last ten years have ALL JUST BEEN ABOUT YOU.” .. “…and I can’t wait to see what YOU do next, and I promise I’ll be right there WITH YOU. Yes we did. Yes we can.”
