Quotes from an article linked from Rense.com by Michael Hoffman, The Strange Case of Obama's Inaugural Oath of Office, a Cryptogram of the
"Here's how the media reported the second rite:
For their do-over, the two men convened in the White House Map Room at 7:35 p.m. for a brief proceeding that was not announced until it was completed
successfully...Only hours after aides told reporters there was no reason to administer the oath again, they concluded it was easier to do it on the
first day, rather than have someone challenge the legitimacy of his presidency...Mr. Obama raised his right hand and did not use a Bible....only nine
people witnessed the do-over. There were four aides, four reporters and a White House photographer..." (NY Times, Jan. 22, 2009)."
Opinion/quotes from Michael Hoffman:
"This second-time-around doppelganger oath was the real oath, since the flawed first one, done in the sight of millions and upon the Bible of
assassinated President Abraham Lincoln was a "challenge (to) the legitimacy of his presidency..."
There was no Bible the second time and with Obama having been compared to John F. Kennedy during the campaign, and with all of the macabre parallels
between Kennedy and Lincoln (Lincoln was killed in Ford's theatre, Kennedy was killed in a Ford automobile; Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy,
Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln; Lincoln and Kennedy were both succeeded by vice-presidents named Johnson, etc.), I'm not sure that if I were
Barack Obama I would have wanted to step into the middle of such a highly charged symbol palimpsest -- unless of course the first inaugural
oath-taking was little more more than shadow-play."
"What appears to be the authentic inauguration took place in a basement, and was an elite rather than a populist rite, with just nine witnesses. It
occurred in former President Franklin Roosevelt's secretive, war-era "map room." "
"If symbolism is a language, what is being signaled by this apparently deliberate omission?"
"The oath is a ritual and this ritual has an icon hovering over it, as if by way of spiritual benediction and patronage. As of this writing, in all
the prominent photos of the second oath which this writer has seen, no caption has been provided by the establishment media that identifies the
enigmatic man in the portrait. Yet, symbolically, he is the "genius loci," the presiding spirit of the authentic inaugural ceremony of Barack Obama
as President. Like the omission of the Bible after so much was made of its presence at the first oath-taking, the omission of any identification of
the figure in the painting at the second oath-taking would seem to be significant.
Let us recall that the second oath was performed in secret: "...the two men convened in the White House Map Room at 7:35 p.m. for a brief proceeding
that was not announced until it was completed..."
In Freemasonry the god of the secret societies is covertly substituted for the One True God. This false god is identified in the masonic lodges as
"the Great Architect."
The mysterious man in the portrait who silently presides over the authentic inauguration of Barack Obama as Commander and Chief, is Benjamin Latrobe,
the great architect of the U.S. Capitol."
Oh, by the way, when I went on line to find out exactly what had happened to "mess up the first oath" I clicked on a link that took me to Yahoo
where I was browsing some of the different photos, and the total number of photos was: 666. Why that number? I felt it was a bad
Also someone commenting said the Bible doesn't mention anti-christ...but it does, in several places, and also, spirit of anti-christ, also
Anti-Christ (capitalized) meaning "the" anti-christ that will cause mayhem for a while!
Not saying O is "the" Anti-Christ but.....
