STRAIGHT TALK

THE LONG WAIT IS OVER

President-elect Joseph E. Biden, Jr. will be inaugurated Wednesday, January 20, 2021, as the 46th president together with Senator Kamala Harris,  who is elected 48th vice president of the United States of America

The history of President-elect Joe Biden's quest for the U.S. presidency dates back many years ago, specifically in 1988 and 2008, but won the Democratic nomination in 2020. Biden then won his first presidential primary in the 2020 South Carolina primary, and in Super Tuesday, he won primaries in nine more states. And the rest is history.


Amid his victorious election to the US presidency last November 3rd, 2020, President-elect Biden has faced numerous election protests from incumbent President Donald J. Trump who never shown his submission as a loser, and instead lodged several election protests with the courts, even reaching all his appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court.


President Trump, using the power of his Tweets, expressed his dismay over how the presidential election was "rigged" and the massive fraud that occurred in states like Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan, and Georgia.


Between now, January 18 to the inauguration day, January 20, 2021, I don't know what President Trump is up to, what he can do more to harm the peace-loving American people who always believe in the rule of law and the meaning of democracy.


As  I have always believed that in the United States of American, as I am a witness to several transitions of government from Republican to Democratic administrations and vice versa, an orderly and peaceful transition of power is always the norm


I am a bit concerned about what President Trump can do more to inflict harm to the incoming administration of the Biden presidency, in this care prior to his inauguration day?


Has the federal government taken precautionary  steps to protect  those who will be in attendance during the inauguration day?


The mobs and rioters all identified as Trump supporters, are still planning to march anew to the U.S. Capitol and stage a peaceful demonstration or show a full force of thugs, a repetition of what happened Wednesday, January 6, 2021.


A show of dissent will only exacerbate the on-going probe by the FBI of suspected mobs and rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol last January 6, 2021,


The fate of President Trump, in his few remaining days of his administration, lies on what the lawmakers, both Democrats and Republicans, from the House and Senate, would do to protect America from further damage that may be in the neurotic mind of the President.
President Trump, in the aftermath of the siege of the U.S. Capitol, resulted in the death of 5 victims including the death of a police officer, who has not even shown his sympathy by lowering the White House flag to half-mast.


History will decide on how President Trump, his lawyer Atty. Rudy, Giuliani, and Senators Cruz and Halley will be remembered based on their actions relative to their support of Trump's continued public outcry of the "rigged and fraud election" during the presidential election.
