A New US President
News Bytes 01/20/2021 210 Comments

Joe Biden has officially become the 46th president of the United States of America.

President Biden took the oath of office just before noon on January 20, 2021, during a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol. U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts administered the presidential oath.

President Biden called for unity in his inaugural address. “We can see each other not as adversaries but as neighbors. We can treat each other with dignity and respect, we can join forces, stop the shouting, and lower the temperature,” he says, “for without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury.”

He repeated, as he had throughout his campaign: “I will be a president for all Americans. I will fight as hard for those who did not support me as those who did.”

Kamala Harris was also sworn in as the nation’s first female vice president.

The former U.S. senator is now the highest-ranking woman ever to serve in the U.S. government.

I do not recognize this man as president. He was elected fraudulently.

God bless america

God bless america

Even though some of you

Even though some of you dislike him, God has had this all planned out.That is all i have to say about that

@RW

Yes!

5th comment

): I know God has it all planned out. but why Joe Biden!?

Asher

Trump himself didn’t find enough fraudulent votes to get himself back into a second term so there is no proof ( unless you can give me an example(‘s) that gives trump 4,000,000 more votes I might reconsider ) that the election was fraud

oh well

yup... well at least we know that its for the best in the end because God chose Biden for some weird reason, though its probably not weird if we could see it from his point of view. But yeah I'm not a Trump fan either though we voted for him.

God SAVE America!!! *dies*

God SAVE America!!! *dies*

@Asher

"Not My President" reminds me of the Dems....don't say it lol

N&M. A

Exactly!

this is Mylee

God Bless Our 46th president! Though i may not agree with him he is still a person that God loves. Also is this the only time America has struggled No ! In the end It will be good cause God has a plan !

God save the president.......

God save the president.........

This is London

GOD blesss America. Tho I wanted trump GOD has a plan and we need trust him.

@Not My President

I agree... although as RW said, its all part of God's plan

Blah

God save our country and all those unborn babies. Ughh.

@Everyone

God has put this man in charge of us for a reason, and we should trust in Him. We should respect the office and encourage President Biden to do what is right, even if we dislike or loathe him entirely. Biden is (or at least claims to be) a Christian and we should treat him respectfully because he was made in the image of God.
Something else that I think we all need to remember: He was not responsible for the fraudulent votes!! That was other people. He wasn't the one who filled out the illegal ballots and carted them in behind the scenes, he is innocent of that.
Sure, he may have goals that we disagree with, but there have been worse presidents since America's birth.
If this is the end of America, (which I highly, highly HIGHLY doubt!!!!!!) let's remember that God ordained this from the beginning of time and that we don't have to despair because he works all things for the good of those who put their faith in him.
God Bless America, and let's pray that “We can see each other not as adversaries but as neighbors. We can treat each other with dignity and respect..." because it's true, "without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury.”
So, Republicans, no need to cry. Stand strong and don't give in. Be kind and self-controlled. We will see the end of evil someday and that will not be anytime soon. Have a great weekend!

@Franz R

The media wants trump to tell everyone the fraud that happened so they could make a story when they go to court. The SCOTUS wouldn't hear the fraud allegations, so that is why trump "lost"

Wow

That Bible that Dr. Biden is holding is beautiful!! I wonder if it is their family Bible?

@Addie L

I don't think Biden is a christian (nor Kamala). If you live in CA, the illegal immigrants are going to march in from Mexico and will make life worse. He IS innocent for stealing this election. I think the end of this age is coming soon! In almost everything we disagree in.

@ Addie

It is a family Bible. My Mom was reading about it on WORLD. Apparently he is Catholic. (One reason that it might be so thick, because the Catholic Bible has more books in it then the Protestant Bible.)

God Bless America.

Okay, remember, even if you don't approve of the President you should still respect him. I did not hope (or think) Biden would win, but he did. I am glad a lot of you are aware that God is in control. Every election has SOME fraud in it, and even if Biden won by fraud...God allowed him. Nothing is impossible, so pray he and Kamala will have a major heart change. Think of it as Saul to Paul and the Dems as the Pharisees. If God turns their hearts around (Biden and Kamala), BY GOLLY DEMS YOU ARE IN FOR A TREAT!

@Addie L

Great point!

@Above

Did y'all listen to Trump's goodbye speech? I heard the end of it. It was really good. He was a good loser in the sport, not a bad one.
And you know what I heard on the radio about this earlier today? They were talking about how we might pray for something, but there are times that God says 'No' to what we ask. We asked for Trump to be reelected. God said 'No'. So we just have to say 'Ok God, I put my trust in You. I know You have everything under control, even though I don't know what will happen' And there you have it. GOD IS IN CONTROL!!!!!!! He will get what He wants out of this election.

@ Grace and Riley

Thank you so much for sharing that.
Grace: YES! That's what I've been praying for too!
Riley: You are absolutely right! God is in control!

If he is calothlic as he

If he is calothlic as he might say, why does he support abortion. Also he supports trans and lgbtq+. My cousins live in vermouth and they said ther is churches with rainbow flaggs and gay pastors it is so sad

Sry for my misspelling

Sry for my misspelling

@London S and Everyone

Welp, it is the world and some churches being fooled into thinking "it's okay to sin." They are trying to use the excuse that they don't want to offend anyone, We need to be asking them this question: Did Jesus offend anyone? Yes, he did. But he did it in loving way. He rebuked their sin, he hated the sin...not the person. WE should do the same. HATE THE SIN NOT THE SINNER! Feelings are misleading. God isn't. LGBTQ+ is an example of mislead hearts. Abortion is selfishness. God is love...so focus on loving and let God do the changing if they cannot be reasoned with.
P.S. Here is a tip...
If you ever get in a debate with someone ever whether LGBTQ+ is right or wrong, focus on the idea not the person. You will just get yourself trapped if you accuse the person or try to defend yourself..ignore the personal attacks and you will quickly gain advantage. Also, pray to God for wisdom in that situation.

May God be with the next

May God be with the next president of the USA. (And vice president as well)

That is a very well read

That is a very well read Bible.

@Everyone

About the bible... I'm pretty sure that is the bible that they swore Abraham Lincoln in on. That is why it is so old and thick. I think Trump got sworn in on the same bible too.

@David P

But still where is the actual fraud of course the media wants to make a big case about ?

@Above

And yes, as Jesus said, "Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you" that is what we need to do. We should have compassion on them because Satan has blinded their eyes and has taken a hold of their hearts, and they do not know what they are doing. We need to be praying for them.
@Grace: that is so true!
Yeah, I think that Bible is really old and has probably been used for a LOT of swearing in ceremonies. It is cool to think about.

yes he still deserves our

yes he still deserves our respect because god put him there remember that god can turn the hearts of man i wish trump won but god has it all in his hands my bestfrend i sa biden saporter she is not a christ follower but we are still best of freinds i am learnight to let god take this out of my hands you are right AL i hope we can give him respect rmember god takes what the enimy uses for evil and he turns it for our good no one ever cares for me like jesus i incourige you to lisen to that song it is really up lifting in my sight God bless America

we wached the inageration

we wached the inageration yesterday i will be 17 at the next one if someone else wins i hope pence will run for president!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! remember god could be testing us he dodse that do not lose hope god is in control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Above

as far as I know, Pence betrayed Trump. It's because of him that Biden is in office.

@Franz R

what are you saying? i don't get it.

also @above

I will be 18 by the next election. Sadly, that means I won't get to have that high school experience. Sorry class of 2024!!

@Above

I'll be 15 by the next election.

@Above

I will be 18 by the next election. Also, Pence is still a good man he just made a bad decision.

@Asher E

(gasp) Asher, you weren't judgemental.

this is Mylee

Next election is on my b-day ! But i wish i was a year older so i could vote :( I'll be 17. But can help at the voting office cause you can be 16 !

As Mylee said my b day is

As Mylee said my b day is next election and will be 17 I still won’t get to vote. All I would want for my birthday that year would be a good president

@Above

He absolutely was elected. In

He absolutely was elected. In your wildest dreams. Psssh. OK, great, so some history was made, but Harris had to cheat to do it. These far lefties drive me nuts....

@ Franz R

Trump couldn't find enough votes? According to who?

@Addie L

Umm, in the first place, there is no way in blazes that Biden is a Christian. Uh uh. And secondly, while it is irrelevant, I would guess he did know about the cheating.

Corbin ugh lol jk

Corbin ugh lol jk

@Corban I

There is a difference between a good person who makes a bad decision and a straight up bad person who was fraudulently elected to be the president of the United States.

@ Jill, London, and Mylee

I will also be 17 at the next election

@ Asher E

There is a difference. But unlike the Democrats who just blindly follow their leaders, Republicans pride themselves on making a descion based on what the constitution says, not what people say. Pence made the decsion he thought followed the what the constitution says.
