Donald Trump's American Revolution formalizes as he takes the oath of office, hand upon his departed mother's Bible, becoming the 45th President of the United States. We review Trump's historic First Inaugural Address and its call to "open your heart to patriotism." We suggest the American people may be more unified than is commonly thought, with a new Wall Street Journal poll noting their clear number one priority is "keeping U.S. jobs from going overseas." We consider the aims of anti-Trump protesters who appear uncomfortable with the miraculous American tradition of the "peaceful transfer of power." Why did an intolerant leftist get booted off an airplane? Meanwhile, the bust of Winston Churchill returns to the Oval Office and we contemplate Lincoln's First Inaugural Address towards "the better angels of our nature." Trump never gives up -- but, then, neither does the Establishment. History to follow. With Listener Calls and Music via Train, the Beatles and George Harrison.
