Well, I have some bad news, ladies and gentlemen. Joe Biden has officially been sworn in as the 46th president of the United States, smack in the middle of a global pandemic and a looming economic crisis of massive proportions.
We all knew this day was coming, but no matter how much you might have prepared, nothing is going to lessen the sting of realizing that our country is now being led by a man who probably has dementia and is most definitely a corrupt individual who abused political power to make money.
In an inaugural that bucked many traditions, Biden became president at the constitutionally-stipulated time of noon on Wednesday. He takes office after a White House primary campaign defined by the Democratic Party’s ascendant Left, a general election marred by a once-in-a-century pandemic, and a transition hindered by a recalcitrant incumbent, now former President Donald Trump.
“Today, we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate, but of a cause — the cause of democracy,” Biden said on the U.S. Capitol’s west front.
He added, “We’ve learned again that democracy is precious. Democracy is fragile. And at this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed.”
What’s truly ironic is that Biden was sworn in on a Bible, something he’s probably never truly read. Nor does he care what it has to say to us about corruption, lying, taking bribes, and other important rules and wisdom for good living.
But, as sad as today is, we can all rejoice that God is alive and well, ruling righteously from the heavens. That is a reason to celebrate today. And, by His grace, we have four years to do better. To bring up better candidates and to take back the White House and preserve our liberty.
