What a lovely relief it was to listen to Biden speak.  Compared to the insane, aggressive and self absorbed idiocy of hearing Trump for the past four years.

Man Arrested In D.C. With 500 Rounds Of Ammo And Unauthorized Inaugural Credentials
Nicholas Reimann | 16 Jan 2021

Capitol Police arrested a man trying to pass through a security checkpoint with a loaded handgun, more than 500 rounds of ammunition and non-government credentials to attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, according to multiple reports, as threats continue to swirl around the inauguration that is now less than 96 hours away.

  • The man, Wesley Allen Beeler, of Virginia, was arrested in downtown Washington on Friday when he pulled his truck up to a police checkpoint.
  • He was arrested for possession of unregistered firearm, possession of unregistered ammunition and carrying a pistol without a license, according to Capitol Police, with CNN reporting he had a loaded Glock semi-automatic pistol with 17 rounds in the chamber.
  • Beeler’s mother told The Washington Post he had been working a private security detail in D.C.
  • Strict lockdown procedures are in place for the inauguration, with the National Mall closed off to the public and in-person access to the event itself largely limited to lawmakers, media and invited guests.
  • The FBI is seeking tips relating to threats around the inauguration, as tech companies have moved to greatly limit access to social media platforms—like Parler—that were used to plan the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6.

News of the arrest has fueled further concern about the safety of Wednesday’s inauguration, with some suggesting that an outdoor convention at the Capitol should not even take place.

Leave it to someone who'd pose with a gun to appoint herself a kind of spokeswoman for Christ. It's interesting that anything goes as long as your stance on reproductive freedom is suitably archaic and inhumane.

What a wonderful day! It feels like the thick dark nasty Venusian clouds that were hanging over this country are finally clearing out.

On first day, Biden enacts face mask mandate, strikes down Trump policies on immigration, climate and more

By DAVE GOLDINER and CHRIS SOMMERFELDT

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

JAN 20, 2021 AT 8:06 PM 

Wasting no time, President Biden signed 15 executive orders within hours of his inauguration Wednesday to roll back some of his predecessor’s most controversial policies while enacting a string of new ones to fight the coronavirus pandemic, address climate change and reform the U.S. immigration system.

Topping Biden’s list:

MASKS: Biden is mandating the use of face masks and social distancing in all federal buildings, on all federal lands and by all federal employees and contractors.

“There’s no time to start like today,” Biden said before signing the order while seated behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office for the first time as president.

In a sharp departure from former President Donald Trump, Biden wore a mask himself while signing.

Here’s a distillation of the other executive actions Biden inked:

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION: Also on the coronavirus front, Biden issued an order reversing Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the World Health Organization. Trump cut ties with the international health group in September over unsubstantiated allegations that it was working with China to cover up the origins of COVID-19.

STUDENT LOANS/HOUSING FORECLOSURES: Biden signed several decrees that extend coronavirus-related moratoriums on federal student loan payments and housing foreclosures — an initial drip of relief as he begins lobbying Congress to enact his more sweeping $1.9 trillion pandemic stimulus package.

CLIMATE CHANGE: Moving on from the virus, Biden issued an order to rejoin the Paris climate accord — which Trump dragged the U.S. out of in November — and revoked the ex-president’s permit for construction of the Keystone XL oil and gas pipeline through the Midwest. Also on climate, Biden included actions requiring reviews of a variety of Trump policies aimed at watering down protections for federal lands and loosening regulations for fossil fuel emissions.

BORDER WALL FINANCING: Effective immediately, the new president squashed a national emergency declaration that allowed Trump to divert billions of dollars in taxpayer cash to bankroll the construction of the southern border wall that he for years claimed Mexico would pay for. The same order froze all new construction of border wall, pending a review of how taxpayer money is being spent on the project.

MUSLIM TRAVEL BAN: Biden put an immediate end to Trump’s travel ban barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.

DACA: Biden ordered his cabinet to work to preserve the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects hundreds of thousands of people who came to the U.S. as young children from deportation. President Barack Obama first introduced DACA in 2012.

IMMIGRATION: Biden squashed a Trump order that deemed all of the roughly 11 million people in the U.S. illegally priorities for deportation proceedings. Instead, the Department of Homeland Security will conduct a review of enforcement priorities.

CENSUS: Trump’s failed attempt to exclude undocumented immigrants from the U.S. census was also rescinded, with Biden ordering a return to the policy that all individuals, regardless of status, be counted.

CITIZENSHIP: Finally, Biden issued an order that doesn’t have any immediate results, but proposes legislation that would grant green cards and a path to citizenship for all undocumented people in the U.S. before Jan. 1, 2021. Republicans in Congress have already balked at this proposal, though Biden prides himself on being able to achieve bipartisan compromises.

OMG the evening show is spectacular for a inauguration celebration... even better than the one for Obama in 2008.

What USA needs to learn, if you want an inauguration extravaganza, vote Democratic!!! We put on a great show boys and girls!

The day started with Lady Gaga, JLo and Garth Brooks... The evening show continues with lots of stars... a spectacular nation wide show! Highlight so far for me: Tom Hanks, Foo Fighters, Jon Bon Jovi, John Legend, and the NY Broadway Stars... 

who is singing taki taki and Despacito? well they performed as well.... from their living rooms... 

Demi Lovato, Katy Perry still to sing. 

Kety Perry fireworks (.) brilliant performants. must see
