VIDEO: Poor Sport Trump vs. Every US President engaging in Transfer of Power


In the annals of history, the United States of America has been a shining example of a democratic nation that cherishes the peaceful transfer of power. Since its founding in 1776, the U.S. has witnessed numerous presidential elections, each culminating in the seamless transfer of authority from one administration to the next.

This hallmark of American democracy not only strengthens the nation’s political stability but also serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration for countries around the world. In this article, we delve into the historical context of this phenomenon and explore why the peaceful transfer of power is crucial not just for the U.S., but for the global community.

The Foundation of Democracy in the U.S.

The United States was born out of a fervent desire to escape tyranny and oppressive rule. Its founding fathers laid the groundwork for a system of government that would ensure the people’s voice was heard and respected.

The Constitution, ratified in 1788, established a unique system of checks and balances, separating powers between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Additionally, the creation of the Electoral College as a mechanism for electing the president aimed to balance the interests of both populous states and smaller ones. This careful arrangement set the stage for the peaceful transition of power between elected leaders, regardless of political affiliations.

Future President George Washington is depicted at the U.S. Constitutional Convention.  He would be the first president to transfer power peacefully to the next honoring the democratic tradition.  The only failed example is when President Donald J. Trump lost Election 2020 and, even after he knew he lost, chose to act like America’s Biggest Baby and be a poor sport deciding NOT to shake hands with President Elect-Biden and transfer power.  He embarrassed himself and left a stain on the USA which is still dealing with his tantrums.

Historical Examples of Peaceful Transfer of Power

Throughout the nation’s history, the U.S. has faced numerous challenges, including internal strife, economic crises, and external conflicts. Yet, despite these hardships, the peaceful transfer of power remained an unwavering constant. Notable examples include:

  1. The First Presidential Transition (1797): George Washington, the first president of the U.S., voluntarily relinquished power after serving two terms, setting a precedent for peaceful transitions.
  2. The Election of 1800: The contentious election between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson led to the passage of the 12th Amendment, which refined the Electoral College system and facilitated future transitions.
  3. The Civil War and Reconstruction: The nation weathered the tumultuous period of the Civil War and Reconstruction era, ensuring that the transition of power remained intact despite internal divisions.
  4. The Great Depression and World Wars: Through times of economic hardship and global conflicts, the U.S. demonstrated the resilience of its democratic institutions by smoothly transferring power between administrations.

The Global Impact of Peaceful Transfer of Power

The peaceful transfer of power in the U.S. reverberates far beyond its borders, playing a significant role in shaping global politics and inspiring democratic movements worldwide.

  1. Inspiration for Aspiring Democracies: The United States serves as a beacon of hope for nations transitioning from autocracy to democracy. Witnessing the orderly transfer of power fosters confidence in democratic processes and the rule of law.
  2. Global Political Stability: A peaceful transition of power ensures continuity in governance and prevents power vacuums that could lead to instability. This stability benefits not only the U.S. but also the entire international community.
  3. Diplomatic Relations: Countries often engage in diplomacy and make long-term commitments based on the understanding of the U.S.’s stable political system. This trust bolsters alliances and fosters collaboration on global challenges such as climate change, terrorism, and nuclear proliferation.
  4. Influence on Authoritarian Regimes: The peaceful transfer of power in the U.S. challenges authoritarian regimes’ arguments that democracy is inherently chaotic and ineffective. It provides an alternative model of governance that promotes accountability and the will of the people.

The peaceful transfer of power has been an enduring hallmark of American democracy, establishing the U.S. as a global exemplar of effective governance. Throughout its history, the nation has proven that political disagreements can be resolved through democratic processes, reaffirming the power of dialogue and compromise.

This tradition resonates worldwide, inspiring emerging democracies and encouraging respect for democratic principles on the international stage. As the U.S. continues to uphold this sacred tradition, it solidifies its position as a vanguard of democratic values, championing the importance of peaceful transitions for a better world.

  1. When America loses its moral compass, all of these niceties should go away as we face our enemies from within. The NWO has won the presidency of these 50 states, through RIGGED elections. It was proven, ignored and sanctioned by TPTB. Mike Pence had the moment and the power, to recognize election fraud and purposely declined to follow through with his MAIN task, after supposedly serving honorably as Trumps VP. He followed directions from an unknown authority and was rewarded with a Masonic 33 degree.
    Donald Trump is about to be fraudulently and wrongfully accused of Sedition. The people of America will not go quietly into the night. We know this GREAT RESET is not in our best interest. Johnny, I hope you will consider the complete facts that are not allowed to be seen by the deeeeep state. Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia were blatantly FIXED ELECTIONS. ALL THE USA, how can this happen? Trump received 79 million American votes to Biden’s 34 million votes. The world follows the NWO and WEF steps to tyranny while you post about a SORE LOSER?
    Trump has done nothing except point out the lies and corruption all around us. The most honorable thing to do is have the United States Military, the founders of our great nation, rise up, make marshal-law for 10–15 days and clean out the swamp, corporations, judges, the three branches of government, then hold new elections with PAPER ballets. Say goodbye to United Nations, NATO, WHO, FBI, CIA, FDA, BLM, CPS, CDC, AMA, and 10 more alphabet agencies.
    That’s all.
