Presidential seal falls off podium as Obama speaks
Associated Press ^ | 10/5/10 | Staff

Posted on 10/05/2010 6:26:11 PM PDT by Nachum

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The presidential seal has fallen off President Barack Obama's podium and clattered to the stage as Obama delivered a speech to a women's conference.

The president was joking with the audience and getting some laughs when he realized what happened. "All of you know who I am," he quipped.

Obama told the audience that somebody in the back was really nervous, referring to the staffer who hung the seal on the front of the lectern so precariously.

Oh, if I believed in omens... I believe in Divine Providence instead.

The only thing worse would be if the teleprompter started to read “MENE MENE TEKEL UPHARSIN...”

May it be for a good omen, that his Presidency should fall and soon.

So does the seal, apparently.

Even the Seal itself hangs its head and falls in shame at what this Imam is doing to our country and the mockery he makes of the presidency.

Funny how fixated the man was with presidential bling before he was even elected.

Now that he’s got the real thing, it’s clonking off the podium and rolling around like an old hubcap or something.

The prophecy is found in Daniel chapter 5 and the surface meaning of the handwriting of God incident is provided in the verses Daniel 5:25-28.

Dan 5:25 And this is the inscription that was written:

MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

:26 This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it;

:27 TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting;

:28 PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.

Most prophetic scriptures clearly portray a time dimension. This prophecy cleverly hides its prophetic nature behind the narrative.

To fully understand this prophecy it is necessary to look at the meanings of the words.

As a matter of fact, all those years later and I’m still not quite sure myself.

Hmmm... Didn’t Barack Obama once go into a church in which he had all of the religious icons covered up? I wonder...

That’s true.

I just watched the video and saw his reaction. Did you notice how nervous he was...and how he was threatening the people who had prepped the stage for him? Vicious, and if he had lived at a time or in a culture where he could have done it, he would have whipped or beheaded them.

Even the inanimate objects are jumping ship. We will know the end is near when we see the teleprompter go running off during an obama ‘speech.’

Yes, Sith Lords. But I can’t think of a Yoda, maybe if you shrunk Rush Limbaugh. And I’m sure Beck is in there somewhere, possibly Luke.

makes me think of Paul Simon's Loves Me Like a Rock lyrics:

I've got the presidential sea... I'm up on the presidential podium... my mama loves me, she loves me... she get down on her knees and hug me, like she loves me like a rock... she rocks me like the Rock of Ages and loves me...

Daniel told the Babylonian king what it meant: “You have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. Your kingdom is given to the Medes and the Persians.”

Cyrus conquered the city that night.

He’s nauseating. I didn’t like Carter and I didn’t like Clinton, but they were both within the normal “don’t like” range. This guy is sickening and I seriously think that he is fundamentally evil (which is why he attracts flies and dumb liberals).

Very good. I wonder if parts of it could be done as a TV commercial for the election. Probably violates copyright law but I think it could be effective ;-)
