Press fear Obama private swearing in
Politico ^ | December 7, 2012 | Dylan Byers

Posted on 12/07/2012 3:17:23 PM PST by thouworm

The White House Correspondents Association is strongly urging the Obama administration to allow press access to the president’s official swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, following indications from inauguration committee officials that the event could potentially be closed to the press.

“Mindful of the historic nature of this occasion, we expect the White House will continue the long tradition of opening the President’s official swearing-in to full press access, and we as an organization are looking forward to working with the administration to make that happen,” Ed Henry, the Fox News correspondent and president of the White House Correspondents Association, said in a statement.

’ it may prove impossible to prosecute an illegal alien for treason,’

If ever we are lucky enough to be able to prosecute obama, we will prosecute him as a US citizen since he claims to be born in Hawaii - if he then claims he is not a US citizen because he was born in Kenya, then we will prosecute him on his fraud and perjury.

His ‘oath’ is not worth a penny since he is constitutionally ineligible.

Why would The Won feel the need to exclude the press?

He wants to use a Koran, not a bible, to be sworn in...so help me Allah.

Now, did he sign the EO that closed all of his personal records after his first swearing in but before the second “official” one??

I know the secrecy EO was Zer0’s first piece of legislation, but if it occured before official swearing in, is it the law of the land?

Regardless of the book he swears on if the oath can’t be wirnessed by the public is it any good? The oath being “-—to the people” and so on. Pretty soon it might be necessary to set up a provisional court to prosecute treason.

The book matters too.

We were founded in Christianity, not islam.

Islam has been at war with the world, Christians and Jews for the last 1400 years. Which means that you , you infidel, have been had with the current pResident.
Also, Islam as a religion? The religion is just a beard for its constitution dictated by sharia which is global domination. Sharias objective is to supplant whatever constitution it encounters and install sharia ASAP pending opportunity.

It is a invasive cancer.

Why does this make me think of how John Roberts had to “fix” some sort of mistake last time by swearing O in again later.

Why is there always the air of sketchy shenanigans with absolutely everything they do?

You mean the almighty media who told the American citizens lies to conceal what Obama is really is now concerned they won't be allowed to view the king's reigning in of all our power and our money. After the royal family have their 20 day, $4 million dollar vacation, I wonder if they will go a vacation to help recover from spending all our money?

Obama: Man of the World
By NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF
Published: March 6, 2007
Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to
prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that
seemed delightfully uncalculated [...], Mr. Obama described the
call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at
sunset.”

”If you check President Obama’s last trip over-seas, his wife left just after their visit to France. She has yet to accompany him to any Arab country. Think about it. Why is Michelle returning to the states when ‘official’ trips to foreign countries generally include the First Lady.” Shepard Smith, Fox News….Here’s one thought on the matter.

While in a Blockbuster renting videos I came across a video called “Obama”. There were two men standing next to me and we talked about President Obama. These guys were Arabs, so I asked them why they thought Michele Obama headed home following the President’s recent visit to France instead of traveling on to Saudi Arabia and Turkey with her husband. They told me she could not go to Saudi Arabia, Turkey or Iraq. I said “Why not,(?) Laura Bush went to Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Dubai .” They said that Obama is a Muslim and therefore he is not allowed to bring his wife into countries that adhere to Sharia Law.

Two points of interest here: 1) I thought it interesting that two American Arabs at Blockbuster believe that our President is a Muslim, 2) who follows a strict Islamic creed. They also said that’s the reason he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. It was a signal to the Muslim world, acknowledging his religion.

For further consideration, here is a response from Dr. Jim Murk, a Middle Eastern Scholar and expert on Islam. This is his explanation of what the Arab American’s were saying.

“An orthodox Muslim man would never take his wife on a politically oriented trip to any nation which practices Sharia law, particularly Saudi Arabia where the Wahhabi sect is dominant. This is true and it is why Obama left Michelle in Europe. She will stay home when he visits Arab countries. He knows Muslim protocol; this includes, bowing to the Saudi King. Obama is regarded as a Muslim in the Arab world, because he was born to a Muslim father; he acknowledged his Muslim faith with George Stephanopoulus. Note that he downplays his involvement with Christianity, by not publicly joining a Christian church in D.C. And occasionally attending the chapel for services at Camp David. He also played down the fact that America is a Christian country and said, unbelievably, that it was one of the largest Muslim nations in the world, which is nonsense. He has publicly taken the side of the Palestinians in the conflict with Israel and he ignored the National Day of Prayer, something no other President has ever done. He is bad news! He conceals his true faith to the detriment of the American people.” — Jim Murk, Doctor of Philosophy in Middle Eastern Culture & Religion.

ACTIONS speak louder than words. Another interesting item regarding Sharia Law. Why has Barack Hussein Obama insisted that the U.S. Attorney General hold the trials of the 911 Muslim Terrorists in Civilian Courts as Common Criminals instead of as Terrorists who attacked the United States of America? If the Muslim Terrorists are tried in Military Tribunals, convicted and sentenced to death, by LAW, Barack Hussein Obama, as President of the United States, would be required to sign their Death Warrants. He would not be required to sign the death warrants if they are sentenced to death by a Civilian Court. Recently, Muslim Jihadist, Army Major Hassan slaughtered non-Muslim, soldiers at Ft. Hood, Texas rather than go to Afghanistan and be a part of anything that could lead to the deaths of fellow Muslims. He stated that Muslims ‘could not and should not kill fellow Muslims.’ Is the motive for Barack Hussein Obama’s insistence on civilian trials, to make sure he doesn’t have to sign the death warrants for the Muslim Terrorists? Why would he, as President of the United States, not sign the death warrants for Muslim Terrorists who attacked the United States and murdered over 3,000 U. S. Citizens on 9/11? Could it be that he is FORBIDDEN by his RELIGION to authorize the execution of Muslims?

Think about that! Open your eyes, ears and mind to who the President is, how he behaves and what he is doing.

“Merry Christmas America. Enjoy it while you can.”

Yesterday I was listening to Christmas harps and traditional stuff like that — hard to get too traditional. Modern hussies dragged from night clubs just don’t cut it unless you don’t like ‘Silent Night’ to begin with. Only Manheim Steamroller was able to ‘do it better’, and even they go too way out sometimes.

But then I felt that Weird Al’s ‘Christmas At Ground Zero’ fit my mood perfectly. We might as well make the best of this Christmas! Eat drink and be merry for New Years might be ... [ok — maybe that’s melodramatic. Hope so.]

The button has been pressed
The radio just let us know
That this is not a test

Everywhere the atom bombs are dropping
It’s the end of all humanity
No more time for last-minute shopping
It’s time to face your final destiny

It’s Christmas at ground zero
There’s panic in the crowd
We can dodge debris while we trim the tree
Underneath the mushroom cloud

Ronald Reagan:
Well, the big day is only a few hours away now.
I’m sure you’re all looking forward to it
as much as we are.

You might hear some reindeer on your rooftop
Or Jack Frost on your windowsill
But if someone’s climbing down your chimney
You better load your gun and shoot to kill

It’s Christmas at ground zero
And if the radiation level’s okay
I’ll go out with you and see all the new
Mutations on New Year’s Day

It’s Christmas at ground zero
Just seconds left to go
I’ll duck and cover with my Yuletide lover
Underneath the mistletoe

It’s Christmas at ground zero
Now the missiles are on their way
What a crazy fluke, we’re gonna get nuked
On this jolly holiday

What a crazy fluke, we’re gonna get nuked
On this jolly holiday!

What a wonderful privilege.

I understood the reason for taking the oath twice this inauguration, but posted the thread for two reasons:

1) the WH press is exerting itself to ask for an open-to-the-press swearing in versus the planned private ceremony closed to the press.

2) This second-term scenario is so reminiscent of Obama's last term swearings in.

Despite historical precedents, I submit that ALL government oaths of office should be administered publicly and preserved, using the most transparent technology possible (video/film) whenever possible.

BTW, I did some research and would like to correct an error I made in post 29 to Hotlanta Mike:

There WAS audio of Obama's re-taking the oath (and a photo, but no VIDEO).

To All---FYI Research:

The first time, Obama used Lincoln's KJV Bible.
The second time, Obama used NO Bible.

Obama/Roberts FIRST (flubbed) oath of office:

Barack Obama's Oath of Office [with video and transcript]

Video: Who Stumbled on the Oath? [both did]

President Obama's oath of office taken on the King James Bible [Lincoln's KJV]

Obama to Take Oath on Same Bible as Lincoln

=======================

Obama/Roberts oath of office---TAKE TWO:

Obama being sworn in disgusts me no matter whether he uses a Bible or Mein Kampf.

Yep, no acknowledgment of a superior Authority (and probably sealed with a high-five).

Transparent means you can’t see it. :)

He’s probably going to swear in on the Necronomicon.

IIRC, Lyndon Johnson was sworn in on an airplane.

Many Presidents have been sworn in using a private ceremony. Lyndon Johnson, Harry Truman, Calvin Coolidge, Theodore Roosevelt, etc. Basically, all Vice Presidents who were elevated to the Presidency upon the death of their predecessor.
