Beyoncé sang the national anthem at yesterday’s inauguration ceremony for President Obama and received overwhelming praise for her performance, ranging from Business Insider (“It was just amazing”) to TMZ (“f*cking awesome”).
Beyoncé’s Instagram photo of herself in a recording studio with members of the Marine Corps Band.
But to close observers, it seems evident that the performer was not singing live. To press seated just below the podium, in front of the “President’s Own” Marine Corps Band, it was evident that the band wasn’t actually playing during the song—even though band director Colonel Michael J. Colburn was conducting energetically and the band members mimicked blowing into their instruments. Separately, at one point during her performance, Beyoncé removed her earpiece.
A hint as to the actual origins of the version Beyoncé sang came from her own hand: On January 20, the day before the ceremony, Beyoncé posted pictures to her Instagram account that appeared to show her in a recording studio. In one, she holds a copy of the sheet music to “The Star Spangled Banner” in front of a microphone attached to a recording device, and in another she sits in front of recording equipment while members of the Marine Corps Band stand clutching sheet music behind her.
Miming along to a pre-recorded track isn’t unheard of at inaugural ceremonies. At President Obama’s 2009 inauguration, cold weather and wind meant that a live performance by cellist Yo-Yo Ma and violinist Itzhak Perlman had to be nixed in favor of a recording. But there are no previously known cases of a singer lip syncing the national anthem during an inaugural performance.
There is nothing surrounding Obama that isn't rife with fraud.

Obama is a candidate for the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on human society in the history of civilization.
Hoaxes always cause disaster. We won't be the first nation in the history of civilization to be exempted from that rule.

you guys are really hitting it out the park. everyone here will be so impressed with your research skills.
Taking 10 seconds to look into the foundation for a crazy argument like you were making is better than debating an idiot who makes assertions based on irrelevant notions.

So what the heck were you trying to say? I don't think you even know. Was it that rich people that dies in 1913 before WWII are somehow indicitive of the issues today, but tied to the NAZI Party, so that makes thing relevant in your mind?

How contorted! You liberals never cease to amaze.

I love how Liberals try to eradicate their racist past!! The facts are the Liberal racists of 60s are today 21st century racists!! Can a Liberal tell me how Blacks have benefited under a Democratic party?
Since the 1960s, blacks have experienced a decline in legitimacy and educational achievement and increases in criminal activity and drug abuse. But they have gained Obamaphones and a token in the White House.

So, what's not to like?

Even the token is shifting his focus from blacks to homosexuals.

While you nitwits dwell on the foggy past, the President is moving the nation FORWARD without you.

That's how irrelevant you nitwits have become.

You speak of your party's past support for all Americans, while denying your party's complete dependence on the older, white evangelical voters for the past 30 years.

Your Party stopped representing all of America when Reagan was elected. That's when the 'southern strategy' of racism and divisiveness became the Republiclown mantra.

You are now reaping what you have sown.

I hope it chokes you.

Again, you don't tell the whole story. Black Americans were already swayed to the Democrat Party by the late 1930s because of the New Deal and the Great Depression. Thousands had already fled the South by the 1960s.
Accusing the Republican Party of being against civil rights based on one Republican who supported the Constitution AND civil rights but believed it to be a states' rights issue instead of the federal government's is just part of the Big Lie and dismisses decades of legislation passed by Republicans precisely to ensure civil rights.
The majorty, if not all, of black Americans had already switched loyalites when big government came on the scene in the 1930s.
That's the problem of why we are where we are today. Not one Republican who has become the liberal's "straw man" to excuse their own sins of the past.

I know Democrats today do not represent the Southern Democrats in the past.

They are just perpetrating racism as an issue for political gain.

Are they not?

WICHITA, Kan (Reuters)- Closed since 2009 after its doctor was murdered, one of the country's most embattled abortion clinics is scheduled to reopen this spring over renewed objections of abortion opponents.

Controversy over the clinic in Wichita, Kansas is building as the country observes the 40th anniversary on Tuesday of the Roe vs. Wade U.S. Supreme Court ruling that made abortion legal in at least the first three months of pregnancy.

An abortion rights group bought the building where George Tiller was among only a few doctors in the country to do late-term abortions before he was gunned down at a Wichita church. Scott Roeder is serving a life sentence after testifying that he killed Tiller, 67, to stop abortions.

Tiller owned the clinic and his family decided to close it down and withdraw from any involvement there after his murder.

Anti-abortion groups are trying to block or delay the reopening of the clinic through a rezoning petition and complaints to the city that permits haven't been issued as required for the clinic's indoor remodeling.

"Once they get the permits we'll be off to the next thing - we will try to persuade contractors not to work there," said Cheryl Sullenger of the Wichita chapter of Operation Rescue.

The attempted roadblocks cast in front of the clinic before it even opens are not discouraging leaders of the organization that bought the building, where abortions, family planning and other gynecological care would be offered.

"We will continue to move forward to see that women have their rights," said Julie Burkhart, who worked with Tiller's clinic for eight years on political and legislative issues. "It's incredibly important because women in this region need access to good medical care."

Since the clinic closed, women in the Wichita area have had to travel at least 150 miles to Oklahoma City or Kansas City for abortions.

Burkhart directs a non-profit organization called Trust Women Foundation Inc, which now owns the single-story, nearly windowless clinic building that sits between a busy highway and a neighborhood of single-family homes.

Tiller's murder spawned formation of the organization with the goal of reopening a clinic, Burkhart said. It took 2-1/2 years to plan a new clinic, look for possible locations and raise money to buy the building, she said. Burkhart is braced for persistent opposition.

"This is absolutely one of the most difficult things I have had to do in my life," said Burkhart, 46. "I have a lot of brave people working with me."

CONSTANT PICKETING

The clinic was the site of constant picketing. Burkhart's home has also been picketed and she has been referred to as a killer in anti-abortion brochures, she said.

I think that the only way to stop the complete takeover of the governement by liberals would be to attack the spending side by other means.

Instead of revamping Social Security perhaps we could simply work to lower prohibitions on tobacco and condom use? If more of these liberals could be encouraged to smoke heavily and rut like wild animals without any sort of protection that would surely achieve the same ends with less fuss.
