    Somewhere in our president's short inaugural address last week (it only seemed long), our newly re-elected chief executive paused to deliver a pious little sermon on the evils of name-calling -- and for good measure, the evils of delay, spectacle and absolutism, too. The Rev. Obama crammed all those sins into a couple of sentences that might have passed for a mini-homily from some less-gifted televangelist: "For now decisions are upon us, and we cannot afford delay. We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate." Well said, at least for an...

    To understand leftism, the most dynamic religion of the last hundred years, you have to understand how the left thinks. The 2013 inaugural address of President Barack Obama provides one such opportunity. --"What makes us exceptional -- what makes us American -- is our allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.'" What American does not resonate to a...

The New York senator angrily admitted yesterday that the pop queen has not called him to say sorry after she turned last week’s inaugural bash into an unexpected Milli Vanilli concert by lip-syncing “The Star-Spangled Banner.” “I have not heard from her before, during or after,” a testy Schumer told The Post after he was asked if Beyoncé had called him to give a musical mea culpa. “She did not talk to me at all.

    On the morning of Obama’s 2nd inauguration, January 21, 2013, Barack and Michelle received a powerful message of TRUTH from Pastor Jonathan Cahn, one that must have infuriated both of them greatly. This courageous pastor delivered a Presidential inaugural message that directly refuted the Black Liberation Theology of hate professed by Obama’s “Reverend” of 20 years, Mr. Jeremiah Wright. Pastor Cahn’s inspired message effectively repudiated Obama’s entire world view, his leadership style and his political priorities. As anyone paying attention knows, almost every word spoken by Obama is a calculated deception, one designed to insult Believers, agitate conservatives, denigrate Americans...

    Theonomy Resources ^ | Jan. 18, 2013
    Edward VI (1537-1553), son of Henry VIII, was crowned king of England and Ireland in 1547 at the tender age of nine. Despite his youthfulness, and the brevity of his reign (he died prematurely in 1553 from an illness), Edward the VI was one of the most godly kings in history. He helped the cause of the Protestant Reformation, and enforced biblical civil law. Edward VI's coronation took place on February 28, 1547. During the coronation, Archbishop Thomas Cranmer (who would become a martyr during the reign of Bloody Mary) delivered a powerful address—the kind that should be given to...

    When he stood before the world to deliver his first inaugural address four years ago, President Barack Obama proudly declared, "We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and non-believers." Early in his presidency, he repeated various permutations of this phrase, always reserving the resonant final spot for the "non-believers." During his first term, Obama also occasionally edited the Creator from the Declaration of Independence. "We hold these truths to be self-evident," he said, for example, in a Sept. 15, 2010, speech, "that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and...

    Having a smoke is no joke to Michelle Obama. A lip-reader claims Speaker John Boehner’s question about cigarettes at the inaugural luncheon is what triggered an eye roll from the first lady. Larry Wenig, a lip-reading expert, tells “Inside Edition” that his analysis shows the Ohio Republican asked President Obama if he had a cigarette before the Monday luncheon. While Obama quit smoking in 2010, Boehner still lights up. Obama has called giving up the habit for good “hard.” According to Wenig, Boehner was referring to Michelle when he quipped to the commander in chief, “Somebody won’t let you do...

    WASHINGTON - If you thought President Obama's first term was one long, uninterrupted political brawl, the next four years will make that period look tame by comparison. If you need any evidence for this prediction, Obama's in-your-face, second inaugural address is Exhibit A. It was a speech tailored to make the hearts of liberal Democrats beat faster, cheering what some in the Washington news media called "Obama unbound." It was a speech that sent an unmistakable message to his party's base that this time around, it's no more Mr. Nice Guy. The gloves are off, these are my issues, and...

However, during the inaugural luncheon Michelle Obama's body language indicated that if she has anything to say about it over the next four years, laying aside and coming together will include rolling her eyes. [SNIP] Then the President 'laid aside' and 'came together' by accusing political adversaries who were genuinely wishing him well of being those who trade "absolutism for principle...substitute spectacle for politics...[and] treat name-calling as reasoned debate."

    Most Americans don’t know this – but then this is a country that did reelect Obama – that Dear Ruler was sworn in for his second term yesterday. The Constitution says he’s to be sworn in on the 20th, and that’s probably the only part of the Constitution that Obama wants to stringently adhere to. But there was a grand opportunity for Obama --- he could delay the inauguration until today, the day of the official holiday for Martin Luther King Jr. After all! How could he resist! I would love to see someone figure out how much it cost...

    Obama's 2009 inauguration was bolstered by the feelings of "hope and change" that boosted the President to electoral victory. His official inauguration committee eschewed corporate donations back then, but times have changed dramatically. The Presidential Inauguration Committee set a goal of raising $50 million for Barack Obama's second inauguration, but have turned to big corporations and big labor unions in order to make it there. AT&T, Bank of America, FedEx, Microsoft and Coca-Cola are all on the official list of inauguration donors this year. Joining those corporations are the American Federation of Government Employees, the American Postal Workers Union, the...

    WASHINGTON -- Four years after making history by becoming the first African-American president, Barack Obama will kick off his second term on Monday with a scaled-back inauguration that reflects the tempered expectations for his next four years in office. Lingering high unemployment, bitter political battles and a divisive re-election campaign have punctured the mood of optimism and hope that infused Obama's 2009 inauguration after a sweeping election win. This time, Obama's inauguration will feature smaller crowds and a reduced slate of inaugural balls and parties to match the more subdued tenor of the times. When Obama raises his right hand...

    The Rev. Louie Giglio, designated to give the benediction at this year’s presidential inauguration, has withdrawn, under apparent pressure, after the surfacing of remarks he made, some 25 years ago, about the sinfulness of homosexuality. Note that the pastor of the evangelical Passion City Church in Atlanta has been pushed off the stage not because of a deed, but because of words he said -- words expressing a widely held Christian belief that homosexuality is a sin. Let’s recall that freedom of religion appears in the First Amendment of our constitution, alongside the protection of freedom of speech. So what...
