Jan. 14 - The Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus announces its closing after 146 years. The chairman of Feld Entertainment, which owns RB & B&B, notes that ticket sales have been falling dramatically over the years, largely from audiences' ability to gain such entertainment via new technology, and culminating in massive ticket drops after elephants were removed from the performance following animal rights groups' allegations of animal mistreatment. The last performances will be held in May.
Jan. 17 - Obama commutes the sentence of Chelsea Manning, who had been convicted of distributing hundreds of thousands of state secret files to Wikileaks. Jan. 17 - A detective named Jerry Walker, a father of four, was killed in Little Elm, Texas, while responding to a call about an armed man outside his home. The shooter was later found dead nearby; it is unknown whether he was shot by himself or police.
Jan. 19 - Texas attorney Brian Loncar, "The Strong Arm", dies of a cocaine overdose. He had been on drugs for some time, trying to cope with his daughter's suicide.

A "Make America Great Again" Concert is held at the Lincoln Memorial, featuring Toby Keith, The Piano Guys, 3 Doors Down, Lee Greenwood, and Ravidrums.
