Obama’s Swearing-in
Ceremony Closed to the Press?

Commentary Magazine, by Alana Goodman

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/10/2012 5:28:40 PM

Politico reports that Obama’s second inaugural oath for the “most transparent administration in history” might be administered privately, without any media present (h/t Morning Jolt): “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.

Comments:
The only reason that Mr. Transparency" would do this is if he swore on a Koran. promising Sharia Law down the road.

We "elected" him and paid for inauguration, so NO excuse for not televising. [I´m not watching, however.] Will get out popcorn and watch, "Dr. Strangelove" and "Seven Days in May."

Yeah... he obviously has no intention of swearing on the Bible or promising to uphold the Constitution of the United States.

According to the 20th amendment, the president is to be sworn in on the 20th of January. So why is he being sworn in in secret on the 20th and publicly on the 21st? Why isn´t January 20th the public and only swearing in ?

Obama said he would back the Muslims if necessary--and fighter planes are on their way to Egypt now.
He said in a speech that this is no longer a Christian country.
He will use a Koran if he does anything at all. I believe Justice Roberts was blackmailed about the last swearing in because it too was on a Koran--so he voted in favor of Obamacare.

Because the 20th is a Sunday and ALL Presidents when Jan. 20th is a Sunday have been sworn in privately on that day with the public swearing in and inauguration on Monday the 21st. ALL Presidents. Look it up.

Pictures of 0bama smirking while reciting what are to him empty words could be risky.

Nor would it be prudent for even the kneepad media to record him mumbling "blah blah, yeah whatever."

After all the BS spread to low-information citizens - and the implications of what is only passed by word-of-mouth on the street or in segregated African-American Studies classes are far more ominous than what is said in the presence of cameras & microphones - I have to suspect this secret ceremony is a set-up for a future meme to the effect that Obama isn´t legally bound to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States" because that´s not what he said in the official inauguration.

#11 is right. The 20th is a Sunday, therefore the public swearing in is on Monday. The official swearing in can be either Saturday the 19th or Sunday.

Coincides perfectly with the Mayan Calendar. The world as we know it ends on 1 month to the day after the Mayan Calendar ends.

Set a precedent too, as it was in Roberts´ office, privately.

#11 is probably correct about Sunday and all past presidents; however, Obama has given us no reason to believe he isn´t trying to pull some deception. My first thought, until reading #11´s comment, was that he doesn´t want Americans to see that he is swearing his oath on a Koran? Would Roberts even agree to Obama using a Koran instead of the Bible?

Bingo #5... I think he did that the 1st time too... Remember they supposedly flubbed it up so had to make sure it was all legal... They had to use Barry´s real name..and the 20th didn´t fall on a Sunday either.
Maybe that is why Roberts caved because he hid their dirty deed and didn´t want to be exposed....
Why can´t the press be there...they weren´t 4 years ago either

It seems to me that there is a possibility that it may never happen. I cling to hope, but the secrecy would be to screen that it is a fraud, just as the first and second times were. No Lincoln Bible? Quran? Koran?

I have long held the contention that the second swearing-in was because Barack 0bama is not his legal name and needed the re-do to cover that inconvenience. And we would probably find a similar anomaly if we actually found his college records (among other anomalies).

Obama does not want people to see when he swears to shred the Constitution, with his hand on the Koran.

On the other hand, his base would be thrilled.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
