CNBC: “The forgotten men and women of this country will be forgotten no longer,” the businessman and former reality television star said in front of the U.S. Capitol on Friday.

Opinion: My favorite part of the speech: President Trump slammed four former presidents, especially Barack Obama, and every member of Congress. Look how much they loved the speech.

“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 capitol, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changed starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you. It belongs to everyone gathered here today, and everyone watching, all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration, and this, the United States of America, is your country.”

Washington politicians grew wealthy, while middle class families saw healthcare costs soar and incomes drop.

Two Scripture selections grabbed my attention:

Franklin Graham: “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” 1 Timothy 2:1-6 

Rabbi Marvin Heir “Bless all of our allies around the world who share our beliefs, ‘By the rivers of Babylon, we wept as we remember Zion…If I forget you O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill’ (Psalm 137:5).”

Zero Hedge: “Washington will turn into a virtual fortress ahead of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration on Friday, as the U.S. capital braces for more than a quarter-million protesters expected during the Republican’s swearing-in.

About 28,000 security personnel, miles (kilometers) of fencing, roadblocks, street barricades and dump trucks laden with sand will be part of the security cordon clamped around 3 square miles (almost 8 square km) of central Washington.

Opinion: CNN is gleefully reporting a potential designated survivor scenario that could land an Obama Cabinet member in the Oval Office. The LA Times says it’s last call to get over the border before President Trump puts real teeth in immigration laws, and an LGBT group is dancing in front of Vice President-elect Pence’s home.

The supposedly tolerant left is coming unglued because they just cannot stand intolerance.

The New American: “In a bizarre spectacle that took many low-level establishment-minded analysts by surprise, brutal Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping was crowned the king of globalism this week by embattled Western globalists at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Blasting “excessive pursuit of profits,” Xi (shown) offered a “vigorous defense” of globalism and pseudo-“free trade” schemes in his keynote speech at the event.

Without a trace of irony, the brutal dictator claimed to be working for “the people” while promoting “liberalization” and “openness”.

Opinion: The revived final empire will not be run by Xi Jinping. Daniel 9:26 is clear that the final dictator will come from somewhere inside the  ancient Roman empire.

We stated numerous times during the presidential campaign that globalism was on the ballot. A win for Hillary Clinton was a vote for a hemispheric common market with open borders and free trade, while a vote for Donald Trump was a vote to make ‘America Great Again’ by putting America first.

The problem for globalists is that their heroes Barack Obama and Ban Ki Moon are yesterday’s news. Nationalism is sweeping the world and until a charismatic politician from somewhere in the vast boundaries of ancient Rome stands up (Daniel 7:20) new globalist leaders will have to carry the banner.
