President Trump fulfills the first election promises


Today was the first full day in office and the new President of the United States when to work and signed three executive order which repeals executive orders of the former president Obama.

Each president has the power to use executive orders to solve an issue, however, each order is only valid as long as the successor do not repeal the order or signs a new order. Mr. Trump stop the hiring of federal employees except for military, stop the funding for abortion and retreated from the TPP (Trans-Pacific-Partnership). There may be coming more in the future.

An executive order is a decision that the president signs to get a necessary piece of politics done without going through the legal process. But these executive orders can only solve a small portion of an issue and to solve the process completely a law is necessary. Such a law process takes often a long time because both parts of the legislation – House of Representative and the Senate – have to agree to law before the president can make binding with his signature.

One example is the order that immigrated children that were brought to the United States without going through the immigration process can stay legal in the country but these children cannot apply for citizenship. This order can easily be ended by President Trump.

Trump's Inaugauration

Today is the most important day for the next four years for the Americans even when more than 60 Democrats representative boycotting this event. It has taken place because that is the way democracy works. You may not like the outcome of an election but you have to live with the result and make the best of it.

This day starts when the president-elect left Blair House the official guest house of the president. Mr. Trump stay there as it is tradition and spent the night. At 7.30 am he and his entire family went to the service in the Church of Presidents nearby. Then followed the coffee meeting in the White House with the outgoing president and the first lady.

Shortly before the president-elect President Obama was seen in the oval office for the last time. Maybe that was the moment when he left the personal note for his successor. That is also a tradition and every president left this note not only to wish the next one well but also to give his last thoughts about the job of the president. This job is not that joyful as many may think, often it is a burden that may give the president sleepless nights.

After the coffee meeting both the president and the president-elect drove together in the presidential limousine – the beast – to the Capitol for the swearing in. A quart to twelve the Vice-President took his oath. Exact at noon Mr. Trump spoke his oath of office and became the 45th President of the United States and gave his inauguration address.

At the following luncheon the president honors his political opponent Mrs. Clinton and her husband with a kind words and a standing ovation. That shows that Mr. Trump fights hard but he also respects his opponents that do not back down.

In the afternoon the new president signed a few executive orders and after heading back to the White House attended the presidential parade of the Military groups, high school bands and veteran organizations. This inauguration day concluded with the attendance at several ball where the president danced with his wife to the Frank Sinatra song “I did it my way”. I think that will be the motto for the next four years and it will certainly be interesting to watch what happens next.

Dr. Martin Luther King Day


On the third Monday in January we celebrate the Martin Luther King Day. This day is in remembrance of the death of the major figure of the Civil Right movement.

Mr. King was a Baptist minister who fought for the civil rights of the Afro-Americans in the 60s with non-violent disobedience and on the base of Christain beliefs. One of the most remembered speeches of Mr. King was “I have a dream” which is tightly knot to his legacy.

His movement grew quickly and one of the icon members of this movement is the Congressman John Lewis who represents a district of Atlanta. During the hot time of the civil rights movement  Mr. Lewis marched side-by-side with Dr. Martin Luther King.

Mr. Lewis articulated his concerns about the legitimacy of President-elect Trump and Mr. Trump tweeted back in his well-known way. This discussion on the internet resulted in the boycott of representatives at the upcoming inauguration of the new president.

In South Florida the motorcyclists and dirt bike riders have their day of disobedience which is called "bike’s up, guns down”. This is already a tradition in Fort Lauderdale, but it is extremely dangerous for the traffic because the bike riders’ behavior is often unpredictable. This year we had a dead person for the first time. I think this behavior is not the right way to protest because there are too many people in danger to get hurt and that is not compatible with the beliefs of Mr. Martin Luther King.

You are fired at the inauguration

Yes, that can happen. In the United States there are several service positions in which a person is chosen and appointed by the president. In this case I am not referring to the members of the government for example the Department of Defense or Department of Justice. These positions are nominated by the president and are interrogated by the Senate. When the Senate agrees with these president’s picks they are confirmed and they can start working in the government.

But there are other positions in lower ranks that are directly appointed by the president and these positions do not need the confirmation by anyone. According to this process these positions are limited in time to the end of the presidency of the president. That means these employees have to write their letter of resignation before the president-elect is sworn in. The president-elect decides whom he wants to keep and who has to leave.

When the president decides to let go such an appointee, this person has to work exactly until the new president comes into office and one minute later he or she is out of job. That sounds hard but every appointee knows that and for them their service is not only a job but an honor and a service for the community. That is a really interesting concept that is little known.

FBI under Investigation

I do not know if you remember the last few days before the election when the FBI launched a new investigation into the email server of Mrs. Clinton. The reason for this investigation was triggered by email that were hacked by the Russians and leaked by WikiLeaks. The intention was to influence the US election by getting again attention to this issue which was already investigated and cleared in August 2016.

When the FBI came out with this investigation we were already in the hot phase of the election and even to the policies of this agency such a handling was not appropriate. But the damage was quickly done and today it does not matter because everyone knows the result of the election.

However, the proceedings are not in line with the regulations and therefore the FBI is now investigated by the Department of Justice. We will see what the finding will be but I think it is the right way to get this process checked out to prevent such a handling in the future. Democracy is too precious as that it should be harmed in such a way.

I like this handling because there are still many democracies in the world that do not have such high standards and their people are disappointed and frustrated. The United States tackle quickly a problem and do not try to sweep it under the rug.

Shooting at the Airport in Fort Lauderdale


Sadly, my home town Fort Lauderdale is today in the breaking news because of a shooting at the international airport. I hoped never to read such news but such an event can never be prevented. There are always people that do not have respect for life. They do not care for anyone and even the strictest gun laws will prevent such events.

The tragic event happened in the arrival area where the travelers pick up their checked baggage. The shooter was based on the existing regulations allowed to transport a weapon in his checked baggage and when he arrived, he picked up his bags and loaded his gun in a bathroom. He shot five people dead and wounded several others who were transported to the hospital for treatment.

However, our Sherriff and his officers as well as the first responders did a great job to help the people and they caught the shooter quickly. As we later learnt the shooter is a mentally disturbed veteran from Alaska who lived in South Florida a few years ago.

Because of this incident the airport was shut down and the service is expected to resume on Saturday when all crime scene investigations are finished.

Nevertheless, the airport in my home town Fort Lauderdale is safe and I am not afraid to go everywhere because I know and trust the authorities and the law enforcement. I will make my next trip also from that airport and I invite you to Fort Lauderdale – the Venice of America – to enjoy our life style.
