    Audience size has been an enduring fixation for now-former President Trump Joe Biden's presidential inauguration proved more popular with viewers than Donald Trump's in 2017. Multiple outlets, including The New York Times and Variety, report that preliminary Nielsen ratings show close to 40 million people tuned in to watch Biden take the oath of office, as opposed to about 38.3 million for Trump— an audience increase of about 4 percent. Ratings and crowd size have been an enduring fixation for now-former President Trump, who began his term in office insisting that he drew far more inaugural attendees than he did....

    Democrat Rep. Stephen Lynch has tested positive to COVID-19 after receiving both shots of the Pfizer vaccine. The 65-year-old Congressman - who represents Massachusetts' 8th Congressional district - tested positive for the virus on Friday afternoon, his spokeswoman told CNN. Lynch attended President Joe Biden's inauguration last Wednesday, but returned a negative test before that event. Lynch received his second dose of the Pfzier COVID-19 vaccine prior to the inauguration, but the spokesperson did not disclose the exact date he had the shot. Pfizer's vaccine does not necessarily prevent COVID-19 infection, but is said to be 95 percent effective in...

  • Wait Pelosi, If Guns Are Bad, Why Are You Asking for Machine Guns?

    01/24/2021 12:43:58 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 39 replies
    Guns are bad. If you ask Nancy Pelosi and any other left-wing politician in Capitol Hill, guns are bad. AR-15s, M16s, and the list goes on. Anything that can fire more than one shot in rapid succession needs to be banned. Yet, that didn’t stop Pelosi from asking for machine guns on Inauguration Day. She actually requested that there be “crew-manned machine guns” for the security forces’ detail. This was confirmed by Acting Deputy of Homeland Security, Ken Cuccinelli. How is it that guns are only bad when they’re in the hands of civilian residents? Suddenly, it’s okay if the...

    Stated many times thru the years we personally know (and work) with Nielsen ratings people here in L.A. as we need the ratings for our production & studio work. Got confirmation from at least 1 person high up the food chain from Nielsen whom we've known for a very long time that the "39 million" number was BULLCRAP. It was made up just to embarrass Trump's 2016 numbers. The true numbers were 20-24 million TOPS. 39 million are not even close to NFL playoff numbers and for some dementia-ridden child-molester who could not even get 100 people to his rallies,...

    Between 150 and 200 National Guard deployed to Washington, D.C., to provide security for President Joe Biden's inauguration have tested positive for the coronavirus, a U.S. official said on Friday. The U.S. government imposed unprecedented security measures in the city following the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump, including fences topped with razor wire and checkpoints manned by National Guard. The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the number of National Guard troops who tested positive could rise but was still a small fraction of the more than 25,000 troops...

    Didn't play well among her left-wing pals Christian author Jen Hatmaker received the opportunity to lead a group of fellow left-wing progressive faith leaders in prayer Thursday at the National Prayer Service, an event held every four years the day after the presidential inauguration to honor and pray for the president and the country. And now Hatmaker is mea culpa-ing all over social media for daring to thank God for giving America the land we have — and she's throwing event organizers under the bus for her troubles. What did Hatmaker say? When it came time for her to lead...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was noticeably missing from President Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday. The self-described democratic socialist claimed that security concerns were a factor in her skipping the inauguration, adding that she and fellow Democratic lawmakers don’t feel safe around Republicans. Ocasio-Cortez appeared on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” where she was asked about her absence at President Biden’s inauguration. “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said Thursday evening. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force,...

  • Biden's America: One Nation or Us Versus Them?

    "We have met the enemy and he is us," said Walt Kelly's cartoon character Pogo, half a century ago, about what we Americans were doing to our environment. Rereading President Joe Biden's inaugural address, Pogo's remark comes to mind. Biden began on a lofty, hopeful and familiar note: "This is a great nation. We are a good people." He ended in the same vein: "So, with purpose and resolve, we turn to those tasks of our time. Sustained by faith. Driven by conviction. And, devoted to one another and the country we love with all our hearts." Within the address...

    Thousands of National Guardsmen were forced to vacate congressional grounds on Thursday and have been photographed having to sleep in parking garages while temperatures in the nation’s capital were set to dip down to near-freezing temperatures. The photos of the living conditions that the National Guardsmen were forced to endure come after Democrats took complete control of the federal government this week following Joe Biden being sworn in as the nation’s 46th president. “Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service,” a National Guardsmen told Politico. “Within...

    As I grabbed some coffee before heading to the Capitol Building to watch the 46th President of the United States of America take his title, the lovely lady behind the counter told me she had never seen anything like this in D.C. in her life. And all I can say as I stand here now in the freezing cold with a handful of others is that I hope America never has to see anything like this again. Nothing is as it seems. It is just horrible, in every sense. There is no one here. And I am not saying...

Thu Jan 21, 2021 Katie Hopkins Not only is the city completely abandoned by ordinary Americans, but it feels like a military garrison, courtesy of 25,000 National Guard troops, police, and Secret Service posted at every intersection. Many of them are sleeping at my hotel and I couldn’t wish for better roommates. But their frustration is obvious. These good men and women have left their homes, families and jobs to be here, but to what end? We can all see there is no threat to be faced....

    In Biden's speech, St. Augustine's deep warning about misdirected unity in love of the wrong thing becomes the spiritual equivalent of “c’mon, man.”Yesterday’s remarks from Joe Biden were what we thought they would be: a lot of talk about unity, and a lot of condemnations of other Americans along the way. The unity talk went over just as expected, with Republicans rolling their eyes. Of course there was unity on that dais in Washington, with a thousand of America’s elites — nearly all of them already vaccinated, but wearing masks to send a message — guarded by tens of thousands...

    If presidential inaugurations are all about symbolism, what to make of this one? There was no grace present as Trump slunk off early in the morning, an embittered use of Air Force One while he still controlled it. No reports of Downton Abbey-like farewells with the White House staff. No first lady tea ceremony. Hell, it’s not like the Bidens haven’t seen the place before. The Trumps left the White House the way most people leave a hotel: might as well get an early start on it.
