Obama Sworn In Again, With Right Words, But No Bible


WASHINGTON POST

In golf, they call it a mulligan. A do-over.

There's no formal name for what President Obama and Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. did last night.

After flubbing his one role on Inauguration Day -- administering the oath of office to Obama -- Roberts traveled to the White House to re-administer the oath.

Just to make sure.

"We decided it was so much fun . . .," Obama joked while sitting on a couch in the Map Room. Obama stood and walked over to make small talk with pool reporters as Roberts donned his black robe.

"Are you ready to take the oath?" Roberts asked.

"I am, and we're going to do it very slowly," Obama replied.

After a flawless recitation that included no Bible and took 25 seconds, Roberts smiled and said, "Congratulations, again."

Obama said, "Thank you, sir," and then added: "All right. The bad news for the [reporters] is there's 12 more balls."

A president is required by the Constitution to say, "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

At the inauguration, Roberts instead said: "that I will execute the office of president to the United States faithfully."

In a statement, White House counsel Greg Craig said the oath was re-administered "out of an abundance of caution."

"We believe that the oath of office was administered effectively and that the President was sworn in appropriately yesterday. But the oath appears in the Constitution itself," Craig's statement said.

Two presidents -- Calvin Coolidge and Chester A. Arthur -- have retaken the oath because of unusual circumstances the first time around.

The Map Room ceremony was less grand than the original one in front of the throng on the Mall.

But it was certainly warmer.

US Marine vs. NYPD Cops (OWS) - the root of American doom

What do you think if this "opinion exchange" gets larger proportions? Would it mean apocalyptic doom of American society and the end of America as we know it?

United States Marine Corps. Sgt. Shamar Thomas from Roosevelt, NY went toe to toe with the New York Police Department. An activist in the Occupy Wall Street movement, Thomas voiced his opinions of the NYPD police brutality that had and has been plaguing the OWS movement.

Thomas is a 24-year-old Marine Veteran (2 tours in Iraq), he currently plays amateur football and is in college.

Thomas comes from a long line of people who sacrifice for their country: Mother, Army Veteran (Iraq), Step father, Army, active duty (Afghanistan), Grand father, Air Force veteran (Vietnam), Great Grand Father Navy veteran (World War II).

Greek Monk Prophecy - Third World War

Greek monk named Joseph often speaks with angels and saints. He's been given detailed prophecy on how the World War Three will begin, who will win, what will happen with USA and European Union and about the Roman Catholic Church who will cease to exist.


This is where the prophecy begins - Vatopedi monastery (Athos, Greece)
The Holy Land of Athos in Greece is famous by vast number of Orthodox Christian monasteries that belong to Greek and Serbian Orthodox Churches. Among them, there is Vatopedi (Βατοπέδι) monastery with old monk named Joseph living in his cell there.

Monk Joseph is famous by "out of this world" experiences such as speaking to angels, saints and even Jesus, the living God himself. These Holy beings often let him have a little glance into the future and people around him know about this unmatched talent.

Still, the old monk is too shy to share his knowledge. Fortunately one day, eight years ago, he opened up to the warden of one of Serbian monasteries at At…

YOU ARE BEING USED by GODLIKEPRODUCTIONS.COM

The only true GLPer is an ex GLPer.

Dear GLPers,
I hope this post is going to be my first and last criticism of once beloved website GodlikeProductions.Com. Once beloved indeed, because GLP back then was true oasis of naked truth, the last stronghold of free speech on the Internet. But everything just changed for worse and if you are true GLPer I am sure you already know this. And I am sure you could be banned already while reading this. I am too, but let's not worry - getting banned from GLP these days is like having TruthTard certificate. (GLP members know what truth-tard means)
The doom of GLP forum escalated with Occupy Wall Street (OWS) uprising couple of days ago. GLP administrator (known as Trinity) started banning every single forum member who tried to express unbiased opinion on OWS background, OWS demands or tried to speculate on OWS ideology other than Trinity did. Such unbiased opinions in form of posts were being immediately deleted and their posters were banned witho…
