Listening to Donald Trump giving his first presidential speech I often found myself wondering if this man is in a strange denial; if he has realized that he’s not still campaigning. I also had to check on myself in the fear that some kind of invisible anti-Trump ears were transmitting into my ears everything I heard. After 17 minutes I had to read and reread his speech to verify that some of things I heard were really there and it was not my imagination which brought me back to the question if this man has realized that he is the president, that the campaign is over or if he knows very well what he says and I am the one in denial.

speech01_400It might be the later. You see despite my anti-Trumpism or everything he (or it) represents, I still like to believe that everything is just ...Donald talk-talk-talk and nothing more and when he actually finds himself in the Oval Office he will actually feel the responsibility. He will somehow be inspired from his predecessors and I don’t know how, but somehow he will understand that all the things he said must be locked in a box and thrown away to some deep sea, never to mention again.

But it was the end of Donald’s speech when he told us what inspires him that really shook me. A private white "god", with blue eyes and blonde hair, with thunders in one hand and nuclear bombs in the other. A strictly American god who will punish the rest of the world that doesn’t kneel in front the American dominance. A god ready to punish everybody who will oppose what is good for the good ol’ cowboys in Texas and Alabama by killing them. A god that will ally even with the devil just to establish dominance. A convenient god that suits Donald marketing plans to sell his authoritarian governing. Whatever happens from now on it will be the will of this god.

President Obama in his last press conference ended everything saying: Good luck. Two words coming with so many hidden messages. Only luck can save us from Donald’s …god!

I think the most appropriate thing to do here, is to cite President the Donald, first speech.

 ********************************************

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people. Together we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges. We will confront hardships, but we will get the job done.

Every four years we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you.

Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.

For too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. 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 capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes 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.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. Jan. 20, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of an historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before. At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public, but for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists:

Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge; and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation, and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams, and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny. The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

For many decades we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry, subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military.

We've defended other nations’ borders while refusing to defend our own and spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America's infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay. We've made other countries rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind. The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world. But that is the past, and now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it's going to be only America first. America first.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.

I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never, ever let you down. America will start winning again, winning like never before. We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation. We will get our people off of welfare and back to work rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.

We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American. We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.

We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow. We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones — and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other. When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity.

We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable. There should be no fear. We are protected, and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we will be protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.

We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about it. The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action. Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow. A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divisions.

It's time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the wind-swept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.

So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words. You will never be ignored again. Your voice, your hopes and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together we will make America strong again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And, yes, together, we will make America great again. Thank you. God bless you and God bless America. Thank you. God bless America.

The mad emperor Caligula would order his praetorian guards, sworn to protect him "kneel before your god." The praetorian guards would not have minded kneeling before the imperial authority of a their supreme commander, but to have to kneel before a deranged psychotic was a bit too much. We know how the story ends. We don't know how the present Caligula presidency will end when the emperor goes around naked in more ways than one but pretends to be impeccably dressed in splendor, but the omens are not very good, they are alread expressed by the protests that have begun last night and will continue today with a women's march on Washington; and indeed we will need more than luck, perhaps we'll also need some prayers...If you don't believe in prayer and have lost all hope, at least buckle your seat belts and prepare for the rollercoaster; it's going to be a bumpy ride and it's coming to the EU too when Le Pen becomes president of France and plays into Putin's strategy of divide and conquer... Good luck to all of us...

I could not stomach watching the inauguration. For me it represents Satan mocking humanity and Satan getting his way in the material world. Trump is a complete sham to democracy and his wife and mistresses have been complete nightmares for feminism and for intelligent hard-working women. I just hope he gets impeached before his term is up.
