How about the fact that G.W.Bush was never elected? That would have been made clear with I.T. expert, Michael Connell's, testimony.

What happened to Connell? Oh yeah, this experienced, expert pilot somehow died in a private plane crash December 19, 2008, before he could spill the beans on vote count manipulation and evidence destruction by White House insiders.

Of course, Karl Rove should be eager to testify so he can clear all of this up. The fact that he's refusing to talk screams out that he's hiding something. You'd have to be a little too trusting to think otherwise.

JakeD, you're "straining a gnat and swallowing a camel" by obsessing on insubstantial minutiae on Obama's birth certificate, while ignoring or excusing outrageous unethical and illegal actions on the part of your beloved party's leaders.

Your good at creating obfuscation with all the propagandish "information" you barrage us with, but it's obvious your not on a search for truth. You're just firmly entrenched in a fight to defend what you already beleive. Methinks you protest too much.

Please don't feed the trolls, everyone. If we ignore JakeD, maybe he'll go away on his own.

Is he going to repeat his Berlin speech and bring along his plastic Greek columns? What can he possibly add to any conversation?

VP Biden: Radiation Weapons Pose a Worldwide Menace to Humanity...

The controversy over former Raytheon executive William Lynn's nomination as deputy defense secretary has yet to center on what should be the main objection...

...the fact that his former employer is a major producer of RADIATION WEAPONRY (a/k/a "directed energy weapons") capable of inflicting silent, potentially lethal injury and of inducing illnesses and ailments ranging from aneurysms, strokes and heart attacks to eye/vision damage and cancer.

This radiation weaponry has been, and continues to be, widely deployed among units of the military, intelligence and law enforcement, on the federal and local levels, as well as in other nations.

Imagine if rogue forces used such silent lethality on their POLITICAL enemies. Perhaps they already have.

This weaponry arguably poses a GREATER risk to humanity than nuclear weapons, since their wide availability virtually guarantees that they will be misused.

And there is evidence that such misuse already is happening -- perhaps with the knowledge of some government officials.

If Lynn makes it to the hearings stage, Congress should question him closely on the deployment of radiation weaponry among law enforcement agencies that deal with the general public.

Also, are radiation weapons "WMD" that should be BANNED entirely? That is a question that world leaders must address.

Here is some source material:

Biden is (legally) Acting President, because Obama is not a "natural-born" citizen.
