revised Saying “HaMakom yenachem…” multiple times
Consistency, editing per comments (not really worth the fight for purposes of the question).

comment What Berachah do you make on a kiwi berry?
Hmm, I disagree with the edits (though I understand them). Is it necessary to provide options? Should I also state that it's not one of the five grains and therefore not Mezonoth? I think my question provided all the relevant information, and by leaving it without suggested answers a person is less likely to question why I chose those suggestions to the exclusion of other options.

@double aa so it seems. I didn't realize that was the case.

comment Government “swearing-in” ceremony
NoachmiFrankfurt, many positions in the US government require people to swear in to office, and many Orthodox Jews serve in such positions. Some are performed with less ceremony, but as @IsaacMoses, commented, people are also sword in to give testimony in court proceedings. If your question is about whether it is appropriate to use a TaNa"Ch, and not about whether it is appropriate to swear, then Joe Lieberman's practice when he was a senator would seem to be irrelevant - unless it can be attested that he was given such guidance by his rabbi.

comment Request document Identification (Ancient Scroll?)
It looks like it might be written in some form of Judeo-Arabic, which would make sense if it's from Tunisia, as you say. But it's a little bit unintelligible to the untrained (or inadequately trained) eye.

comment Is getting a blessing from a rabbi considered heresy?
Is this an answer? I don't think so.
