Biden Inauguration

Don't be thrown off by the smoke and mirrors. What's really going on in the background is nothing more than an avalanche of irresponsible changes from our new leadership in Washington. We're approaching a time where fiscal responsibility doesn't matter. Let's just hope you're not taken away by all the fireworks besides our new president and vice president before it's too late. 

A historic day in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday with Joe Biden being sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. While the attack on U.S. Capitol and the COVID-19 pandemic made attendance at an all-time low, there was no shortage of memorable moments from the Presidential Inauguration.

The President's action speaks much louder than his words and those paying attention need to hear them loud and clear. Biden won't say stop the impending impeachment of Trump. Why would he do that when it can push the Republicans down even further.

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was sworn in Wednesday as the 46th president of the United States, writing a new chapter in American history as the first oldest American to hold the nation's highest office at 78. The former vice president takes over in a time of healing with a nation currently divided.

“On Inauguration Day, President-elect Biden will sign roughly a dozen actions,” White House chief of staff Ron Klain wrote in a memo last week. “While the policy objectives in these executive actions are bold, I want to be clear: the legal theory behind them is well-founded and represents a restoration of an appropriate, constitutional role for the President.”

The outgoing President made one last speech before boarding Air Force One, saying "We were not a regular administration." He and his wife Melania head to his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Fla., skipping the inauguration for President-elect Joe Biden at Noon ET.

The former Vice President fought back tears as he thanked his supporters less than 24 hours before taking over the 46th President of the United States. "In our family, the values we share, the character we strive for, the way we view the world—it all comes from home. It all comes from Delaware," Biden said.

Governor Roy Cooper is mobilizing 550 North Carolina National Guardsmen to bolster security in North Carolina and Washington, DC. With reports of demonstrations in state capitols, 350 of the guardsmen will stay here in North Carolina, and the remaining 200 are heading for Washington.

CMPD is lending a hand with security at next week’s Inauguration in Washington DC. Reports say nine officers are going but CMPD will say only “While we cannot discuss specific staffing numbers or details related to security, we can ensure the public that our assistance will not create any local service interruptions

President Donald Trump said he would not attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Friday. A break from tradition and a peaceful transition of power that has been part of the U.S. establishment for over 150 years. "To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th,” Trump tweeted.
