President Donald J. Trump is putting the American people first.

In his first speech as President of the United States, Mr. Trump uttered the word “I” only three times — and in every instance, it was in a pledge to serve the American populous.

“The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans,” Mr. Trump said.

Later, in his speech he pledged: “I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never ever let you down.”

And that was it.

‘Off of welfare and back to work rebuilding our country’: Trump vows massive infrastructure spending

Moments after he was sworn in as the nation’s 45th commander in chief, President Donald Trump said he’ll get Americans “off of welfare and back to work rebuilding our country,” vowing to make massive investments in new roads, bridges, airports and other key pieces of infrastructure.

Mr. Trump didn’t offer specifics in his 17-minute inaugural address, but in the past he’s spoken of a $1 trillion infrastructure investment plan, one of the few areas he’s likely to find real common ground with at least some congressional Democrats. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, for example, has expressed support for such a plan.

The new president cast infrastructure spending as part of his broader plan to put “America first.”

Donald Trump: We will ‘eradicate’ ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ ‘from the face of the Earth’

President Donald Trump threw down the gauntlet in the fight against terrorism in his inaugural address Friday, pledging to “eradicate” “radical Islamic terrorism” from the world.

“We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones - and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth,” Mr. Trump said.

Mr. Trump and other Republicans have criticized former President Obama for declining to use the specific phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” in the context of the fight against terrorist groups like the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIS or ISIL.

Pro-Brexit, pro-Farage, pro-Trump: Westmonster: Arron Banks launches anti-establishment website

Great to have you here.

What an incredible year 2016 was! Seismic political change swept the world, first with Brexit, followed by the election of Donald Trump as US President. The establishment took one hell of a beating.

The pundits got it wrong. The polls got it wrong. 2016 truly was a victory for ordinary people. 2017 might just be even bigger.

In an age of transformative political change that has been spearheaded by groups like Leave.EU, the media landscape is quickly changing too. And so here we are.

Pro-Brexit, pro-Farage, pro-Trump. Anti-establishment, anti-open borders, anti-corporatism.

Westmonster is part of the growing movement in the UK and right across the world that wants to see radical political change.

Stick around. You might just like what is to follow…

All References to ‘Climate Change’ Deleted From White House Website at Noon Today

Via Billy


A climate of change! Perhaps the most stark contrast between the Obama administration and the Trump administration is on “global warming”. The climate differences were visible today as the White House website was scrubbed of all references to “climate change” at exactly noon today just as President Donald Trump was sworn in.

Climate Depot statement: “Climate skeptics are thrilled that one of the very first visible changes of the transition of power between President Obama and President Trump is the booting of “climate change” from the White House website. Trump is truly going to make science great again and reject the notion that humans are the control knob of the climate and UN treaties and EPA regulations can somehow regulate temperature and storminess. Welcome to the era of sound science!” (Note: Skeptical Film ‘Climate Hustle’ Now Available As ‘Streaming Video On Demand’ to Greet Gore’s Sequel)

Meteorologist and Weather Channel Founder John Coleman had one word to describe the White House climate website changes. ‘Hooray!,” Coleman, a climate skeptic, tweeted. (Also see: Weather Channel Founder: Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ Will Be Another ‘Scientific Monstrosity

President Trump put a hold on all new and pending federal regulation on his first day in office Friday, with a White House memorandum ordering federal agencies to subject the regulations to review by incoming secretaries.

Rolling back federal regulation was a top campaign pledged from Mr. Trump, who promised to impose a rule that two existing regulation had to be eliminated for each new regulation created.

He has said the regulations had a stranglehold on businesses and slowed job creation and economic expansion.

Day 1

Via Billy

In the first days of 2017, Washington D.C. was empty. It was a city holding its breath. Secret Service police officers in balaclavas waited at the White House as a black SUV carrying departing staffers passed. It had not been so long ago that they came into the city as if they owned it and the entire country. Now the same men and women who ran and ruined the lives of millions were scrolling through job postings on their smartphones. They watched Obama speak from faded screens at sports bars and they cried.

They knew it was coming. Day 1.

Papa Daws


Three long ringing signals from I the driver’s horn, and the hunt was over. I quit my stand and met Dad on the road back of our line. We had both seen a doe that had kept us on our toes for a while, but otherwise, the drive had been uneventful.

We fell quiet and listened. Then Dad asked if I had noticed how it was still possible to see the plowed rows of an old cultivated field where there now were large trees. He often pointed out such bits of local history, and I always enjoyed learning about them. We listened to a hound bothering a cold trail for the second time.

The hound responded to another call from the horn, and Dad broke the silence again.

“During slavery times, most of this swamp was cultivated and there was little thought for timber. The Englishes, Ancrums, Canteys, and Langs were neighbors in these parts. That was when Papa Daws was here.”

Thank God for Barack Obama (he cleared the field for Donald Trump)

As America watches Donald Trump take the presidential oath on Friday, it’ll be worth taking a moment to think about what the future will show was a truly providential moment in our history: the presidency of Barack Obama.

It’s time to realize that the eight years of Obama were a gift that kept on giving, one that has cleared the field for Trump in ways we can’t see.

Why? Because in his eight years in office, Obama managed to expose the intellectual bankruptcy of liberalism. He revealed once and for all that it’s an ideology based on a flawed view of reality and of human nature, and that it has been a destructive force in our country going back to the New Deal, and going forward to ObamaCare.

Obama exposed the bankruptcy of the mainstream media and its bogus claims to be an objective information filter, when, in fact, outlets like CNN, NBC and the New York Times are mouthpieces for the Democratic Party.

He exposed the political bankruptcy of the so-called civil rights movement and groups like Black Lives Matter and showed that, instead of trying to improve the lives of African-Americans, they are geared to raise racial tensions for political gain.
