Video: The sadly obligatory “Obama inauguration UFO” clip

posted at 11:53 am on January 24, 2009 by Allahpundit

Yes, believe it or not, the media has picked this “story” up. How could they not? The top clip has 170,000+ views as I write this.

The bottom clip, taken from an HD recording, appears to show the object with flapping wings. What, oh what, can it be? I’m guessing either (a) Pegasus, stirred from thousands of years of slumber to herald the coming of The One, or (b) of course, an angel. Aren’t there several passages in the New Testament where the seraphim attend to Jesus? Surely they weren’t going to miss the greatest day for mankind since the resurrection. Exit quotation: “Personally, I think the little green men rocked up to join the rest of the world in wishing Obama well.”

It’s only fitting that this godly object exposed itself while the church of CNN was honoring the messiah, Obama.

I think they call that flying thing a bird.

According to the story, Muhammed was awakened in the night by the Angel Gabriel, who, after removing the Prophet’s heart, washed the cavity with holy water and filled the heart itself with faith and science. A strange creature, called Al-Burak (which means lightning bolt), was brought for the Prophet to ride. Al-Burak is described as a white animal the shape and size of a mule, with the head of a woman and the tail of a peacock.

It may be The Mothman. He always shows up at disasters.

kingsjester on January 24, 2009 at 12:04 PM

Then, after a while, the Prophet descended again to earth; coming back down the ladder of light and standing again on the Sacred Rock at Jerusalem. He flew back to Mecca on the magical steed Al-Burak and was back before dawn.

Barack has his own Al-Burak.

Obama was so fast he wasn’t even missed.

Jamson64 on January 24, 2009 at 12:11 PM

It was fast
Flying from the Right moving to the LEFT..

AHH i got it i got it
its a ufo proving that moving the entire country to the left is GOOD..

Ahh see its a sign from above

Now more realistically
the first one was probably a large bird because it kept cirling the washington monument

the second one was flying straight and level
Since there is an AIRPORT nearby
I would make a presumption that it probably was
the same kind of airplane that kennedy was killed in
it goes over 400 mph and is very small

jcila on January 24, 2009 at 12:11 PM

Maybe it was a saucer full of human resource recruiters looking for someone to run their planet too.They had been monitoring all our media transmissions and they had heard that this Obama fellow was up to the job.

That was a scheduled comet that was supposed to pick-up/inhale all liberal loonies attending the inauguration. Transference did not occur because of a neurosis overload.

Latest word is that it has been identified as a quail escaping from Cheney’s office.

Oh Great Just what we need, this is going to crank up Louis Farrakhan and the Mother Ship Prophecy. One of many “Strange Occurrences” I might add that is being built around “The Ones” Presidency.

How about the one where Martin Luther King Jr’s predicted a Black President in 40 years and Obama fullfilled his prophecy? Yeah lots of lost context but there is visual footage.

All the games, tricks and lies that he did during his campaign. With Acorn helping to steal votes. I wouldn’t doubt that Holly Weird had something to do with this……I don’t know maybe a hologram? I know one thing, it wasn’t no prophecy that is for sure. Would be more like a buzzard circling.

MirCat on January 24, 2009 at 9:46 PM

I took a picture of a wasp that was on the outside of the window of a van I was sitting in. It looked bigger than the house in the background. A small bird closer to the camera will look larger and move faster than one further away.

It sounds like the moonbats would rather everyone focus on some imaginary boogey man so we don’t notice what President YoMama is planning.

darwin-t on January 24, 2009 at 9:58 PM

On second thought, maybe it was the Mothman. He’s been laying low since they made that movie about him.

eh someone on youtube used some software which demonstrates it flew on ‘this’ side of the monument. Since there was no all-out air alert, maybe it was a uh, whats the word, BIRD!

johnnyU on January 25, 2009 at 10:17 AM

Sheesh, it passes between the camera and the Washington Monument. It’s a bird or, more likely, an insect very close to the camera. If a UFO had passed that low over a crowd, I would think someone would have noticed….

MikeTheLibrarian on January 25, 2009 at 10:58 AM

johnnyU on January 25, 2009 at 11:25 AM

Nah, I think they took one look at all the people jammed in every nook & cranny below and said, “Zozzle cleek zib shizz, mazzle zoot.” (“The earth is full, let’s go home.”) …or something…

NightmareOnKStreet on January 25, 2009 at 11:59 AM

The ‘passing in front’ was probably just a reflection on the camera lens. It’s most likely a jet landing at Reagan bringing in more of the Obama faithful.

zoyclem on January 25, 2009 at 12:16 PM

Now, those Obama faithful may be extra-terresterials…

In West Virginia when the bridege fell, they say the Mothmen were spotted during 9/11 in the skies of the city.

F15Mech on January 25, 2009 at 3:56 PM

(b) of course, an angel. Aren’t there several passages in the New Testament where the seraphim attend to Jesus?

As far as I am aware there is only one reference to these angelic beings in the Bible. The seraphims are mentioned in Isaiah chapter 6,

“Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.”

One placed a hot coal against Isaiah’s lips with the words, “thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.” Isaiah 6:7

As you mentioned these angels do worship the good Lord Jesus. It could be that they are similar in rank to the cherubim, yet different in function. The cherubim are apparently the highest beings in the heirarchy of angels always associated with the immediate presence of God. Satan himself had once been the “anointed cherub” on God’s holy mountain until he was cast out of heaven for trying to dethrone God. Now since Satan can’t do anything to God he spends all his time harassing His people instead.

Angels and demons exist, but I don’t know what that flying object in the video was. I do know it’s nothing compared to what’s coming during the 7 year tribulation period. There will be terrifying locust-like demons let loose with the speed of horses, the teeth of lions, and the stings of scorpions. These demons are able to move very well and they will be let loose for a brief time to exercise God’s judgment on the still-rebellious men. They will attack only “unsealed men (unsaved).” Any of you reading. I pray they don’t attack YOU.

apacalyps on January 26, 2009 at 2:58 AM

And for the record I do believe alot of these UFO’s we see (the real ones) are in fact, demons. See, if Satan knows the rapture is going to happen in the future he’d have to plan a way to explain why millions of people unexpectedly and unexplainedly vanished from the face of the earth. When the church is taken from the earth all kinds of so-called experts will be on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, et al, giving their “expert” opinions about what just happened. I believe one of the theories will be that UFO’s took all the people away. Alien beings came and took their loved ones away. Of course, Jesus will have removed all Christians from the Earth, to protect them a horrible time of trial and affliction on this earth for a period of 7 years. That will be the truth. Anyways, in my view many of these UFO’s are part of Satan’s plan to deceive mankind yet again.
