  • Obama's hand over heart for Russian national anthem, not US?

    Can this possibly be true? An anti-Obama website, The Obama File, posts a photograph purporting to show President Obama putting his hand over his heart during the playing of the Russian national anthem, during his visit to Moscow. How can it possibly be a genuine photograph, when we know that the President didn't put his hand over his heart during the playing of the American national anthem, as demonstrated in this now-infamous photograph taken during the campaign? Please, let the purported Moscow photograph be a fake. Or, even better, someone point me to the time when President Obama noted that...

    June 14th is Flag Day in the US. When Francis Scott Key wrote The Star Spangled Banner he posed a question. Most of us never think much about that question but events at the dawn of the 21st century beg that we revisit it. What is your answer? Video link

    In the Age of Karaoke, more people (including me) like to join in the singing when they strike up the national anthem at public occasions. No one can stop you, no matter how embarrassed she might be by your obvious lack of talent. It's always disappointing when you're invited to stand and enjoy some high school glee club or famous opera singer. But chances are that even the opera singer won't get it right. "The Star-Spangled Banner" is notoriously unsingable. A professor of music, Caldwell Titcomb of Brandeis, pointed out years ago in the New Republic that its melody spans...

    During Game 5 of the Playoffs last week, Tyrese Gibson decided to change the words of the National Anthem -- and now he realizes what a colossal mistake that really was. Gibson was booed hardcore after he replaced the line "our flag was still there" with "our Lakers were still there," and when we asked about his version last night, dude turned deathly serious and extremely apologetic. There's only one national anthem

    ORLANDO -- Orlando Magic fans received a special treat Tuesday night when they heard Gina Incandela, 7, sing the national anthem. Believe it or not, Gina is autistic and never spoke a single word until she was three. With the use of music therapy, Gina learned to talk, and to her parents' surprise, she had a beautiful voice.

    Listened to the Boston Bruins at Montreal Canadiens game tonight on WBZ radio; as Rene Rancourt (I believe) started to sing the Star Spangled Banner, a huge chorus of boos could be heard during the song. At the start of Oh Canada there was a cheer, but no disrespect. I know of the long rivalry between the two teams. But how rude to boo the U.S. national anthem--why, you'd think the folks up North wouldn't do that anymore--since we have The One in office. Heck, I can't see us booing Oh Canada during a Bruins-Canadiens game at TD BankNorth Garden,...

    Well, what do you know. The original Star Spangled Banner was about victory in the War against the Barbary Pirates (read Muslims). From Her Royal Whyness: Earlier today, I viewed a video lecture (also forwarded link to you - subject: Arabs and Zionists' tug-og-war over America since 1776 - Professor Michael Oren video)given by historian and author Dr. Michael Oren, here . Quote from the end of the lecture (he's a real tease, that one) : "Why the original lyrics of the 'Star Spangled Banner' talked about Muslims bowing down to the victorious flag of the United States." Well, it...

    A Lakeview Elementary parent is upset the audience of a school program on Martin Luther King Jr. was asked to stand for a song known as the black national anthem.

Russ Roberts, who has a first-grade daughter and fourth-grade son at Lakeview, said he was shocked when the audience was asked to stand for the song after it was identified as the “Black National Anthem.” He said he doesn’t object...

    An Islamic college in the land of Oz has banned the song Advance Australia Fair, which just happens to be the country's national anthem. It was was said to be anti-Islamic. A group of brave Australians came out in protest against the school, the Muslims called the protests un-Australian. Obviously freedom of speech and assimilating are also anti-Islamic.

    The Obama campaign asked Zach Bencal of Londonderry, New Hampshire to sing the National Anthem at an Obama rally there Friday and then told him to forget about it -- they had scratched the National Anthem from the program. According to the New Hampshire Union Leader, the Obama people dumped the Star Spangled Banner to make room for another speaker.
