Rick Amato: A New Day In America

The day is finally here.  For nearly two years or so the corporate media, Democrats and many Republicans thought this would be the day that another Clinton was sworn into the office of the presidency.  I suppose there were some within the Republican establishment who thought today would be a day of celebration for yet another member of the Bush family.   Instead of course they were all wrong.  But why?

Today’s swearing in of President Donald Trump as the nation’s 45th President has its roots in a pivotal event which occurred on February 19th, 2009.  That was the day CNBC TV commentator Rick Santelli took took to the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and gave an epic on air rant against government bailouts of risky undeserving behavior.  Santelli’s speech was the impetus which led to the creation of the Tea Party movement.

A grass roots movement which swept across America and attracted scores of people who previously had never been involved in American politics.  These “everyday” Americans got involved because they understood their best interests – for decades- were not being represented by Washington’s politicians and now for once they ha an outlet to express their frustration.  But whether or not the movement had the ability to achieve the change which its supporters sought was still a big unknown.  The Tea Party movement, however, became the impetus which made possible the unlikely victory of a political outsider named Donald J. Trump to the highest office in the land.  I suppose there is something fitting about a reality TV celebrity becoming President only after the winds of change were sewn into place by the words of a live TV commentator.

Today should be viewed as a day of victory celebration for right-of-center grass roots, anti-establishment politics made possible by the the Tea (acronym for “taxed enough already”) Party movement.  Those millions of working class Americans who supported the Tea Party in various forms over the past seven years should take great pride in their in accomplishment on this Inauguration Day.

While I never expected this day to arrive I suppose in one sense we should have seen it coming all along.  Corporate media, Democrats and the establishment in the Republican party did all they could to destroy the Tea Party, a sign they viewed it as a genuine threat.  The media lied and branded it as being racist and made it the butt of jokes among Democrat followers.  The Obama administration used the IRS as a political weapon and targeted various chapters for crippling audits all but shutting down operations.  Several Republicans (see John Boehner) despised the Tea Party and did all they could to ignore or minimize the acknowledgment of its existence.  But it survived.  At least in the minds and hearts of its supporters.

None of this would have mattered of course if Donald Trump had not come along.  Trump for all the lack of his political experience somehow had the political savvy to understand the political opportunity- but more importantly- how to tap into the energy and pent up frustration of the millions of Americans who felt disconnected from their elected officials.  What is remarkable is not only that he understood that political landscape, but a man of his age and financial place in life was willing to take on the high risk – low probability of success, long term task of becoming America’s next President.  A lesser person would have failed or quit long ago.  Trump must have wanted it badly.

As I have written previously in time we will learn if the Trump administration will be a success or whether or not corporate media will gleefully tell us ‘I told you so’.  But on this day at least, Rick Santelli along with millions of grass roots Americans should take pride and know that if it were not for their efforts another Clinton or Bush would be scheduled to be sworn in as America’s next President.  We deserve better.

    what “swept across America” was racism, bigotry and fear, all fueled by Trumps obscene vitral.

      You’re the one that needs a refresher course. Your Muslim buddy, and his ghetto wife, were two of the biggest raciest there ever was!

    President Trump, ran for office, because he was maybe more pissed than the American god loving people. And don’t forget he was humiliated, before he made his decision to do so…especially by Obuma! He was play for keeps…and did it his way, against all odds. But his honesty and truthfulness shined through into the hearts of those that felt his pain, as he felt ours! He that laugh lasts, laughs hardest! Trump shines!…Obuma is tarnished!!

    Five TRILLION dollars spent on Iraq and Afghanistan. If we had spent that on our infrastructure could you imagine our country today? What did we get? I believe we got nothing. Let Russia waste their treasures in the Middle East. They will never win . We should leave those countries alone to deal with their own problems, build up our military, be so strong that no one will dare attack the USA at home or abroad for if they do they will be history. I believe that President Trump believes this. Let’s see what happens!

    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia played a large role in this election. His death slapped reality into many people. We were reminded what was at stake. This president is likely to appoint 3 or 4 people to the high court. I didn’t want Hillary picking people with her values for the bench.
