    Power Transition
    The peaceful transition of power that represents the hallmark of our democratic republic plays out at midday in Washington, D.C. Donald Trump will take the oath of office to become the 45th President of the United States at noon. The oath is one of the grandest traditions of the republic but it is not without its own controversies. No one knows exactly how that phrase made it into the presidential oath. Urban legend has it as an impromptu add-on by George Washington, but historians mostly agree there's no evidence to back that up. Abraham Lincoln was said to have added "So help me God" to his oath, but again - not everyone agrees that the legend matches history. A lawsuit in 2008 challenged the inclusion of the phrase, but Chief Justice John Roberts responded by saying the phrase comes "after the oath" not as part of it. The Supreme Court ultimately declined to hear that case.

     

    Inauguration

    Of Pennsylvania's five Democratic U.S. Representatives, only one will be there to watch the inauguration of Republican Donald Trump. Congressman Matthew Cartwright (D-PA-17) says he is not critical of his Democratic colleagues who are boycotting the presidential inauguration, especially the man who started the movement, Georgia Congressman John Lewis. Cartwright says part of his reason for attending is that he feels it's his duty to go as an elected representative.

     

    Lou Barletta

    He's been a Donald Trump supporter from the beginning.. and now he's looking forward to Friday's inauguration. Lou Barletta of Hazleton has been a part of Trump's transition team. Barletta said he feels good about his decision to endorse Trump. After Trump was elected, Barletta was being considered for a position in Trump’s cabinet, but decided to withdraw from consideration to stay in his seat in congress.

     

    Women's March on D.C.
    Thousands of Pennsylvanians will join the Women's March on Washington Saturday. The march is expected to be the largest demonstration around the inauguration of Donald Trump. At least 15-thousand Pennsylvanians are officially signed up to join the Women's March on Washington, and national organizers estimate the number that actually shows up could be double that. State organizers say the march won't be a one-and-done event...but the beginning of a movement. They hope it will inspire people to get more involved in their communities and run for office.
