On a day of prayer, pledges and parties, President Barack Obama heard cheers in the streets of the capital Monday as he returned to the White House from a morning church service and crowds massed on the National Mall in anticipation of his encore inaugural address.
Obama aims to set an optimistic tone as he takes the oath of office and speaks to a divided nation seeking solutions to economic woes at home and conflict overseas. The fanfare will extend across the nation’s capital, including the traditional inaugural parade and a pair of glitzy formal balls.
Obama and his family, along with Vice President Joe Biden, arrived at St. John’s Episcopal Church on a crisp and clear morning in the nation’s capital. Known as “The Church of the Presidents”, St. John’s is located just across from the White House on the other side of Lafayette Park. Pew 54 is known as “the president’s pew” and is reserved for the commander-in-chief whenever he attends services.
The centerpiece of Monday’s festivities would be Obama’s inaugural address to the crowd in Washington and millions more watching on television. The president will urge lawmakers to find common ground when they can, and preview his second term goals, including comprehensive immigration reform, stricter gun control laws, and an end to the war in Afghanistan.

Beyonce’s dad Mathew Knowles emailed an ominous threat to the mother of his 2-year-old son — or so the woman claims, and now she’s gunning for him in court.
Knowles’ baby mama Alexsandra Wright filed legal docs, asking the family court judge to up her child support to cover expenses for security to protect their kid. Mathew is currently on the hook for $12k a month.
Wright claims she needs security because of a “threatening” email Knowles sent her back in September 2011, in which he wrote, “You hurt my family. There’s a price to pay.”
According to the docs, Wright also wants additional dough to cover expenses for a secure, private school.
Sources close to Knowles tell TMZ … he faithfully pays child support, adding the only reason he hasn’t paid expenses for schooling is because they haven’t agreed on the school.
We’re told Knowles thinks Wright’s latest legal move could backfire because his income has drastically decreased since the original order was issued. As you know, Beyonce gave him walking papers in 2011.
Knowles believes the judge could actually reduce his monthly payments.
Like Beyonce said “You shoulda put a ring on it” ”oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh oh”….
