President Obama starts his day with his routine presidential briefing at 9:30 a.m. At 10:00 a.m., he discusses his plan to cut wasteful spending in a speech delivered in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Obama then returns to the White House for his routine economic briefing at 10:45 a.m., followed by a meeting with senior advisers at 11:15 a.m.

There are no afternoon events listed on Obama's public schedule but in the evening, at 7:30 p.m., Obama and first lady Michelle host a dinner for congressional committee chairs in the East Room of the White House.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs holds the press briefing at 11:30 a.m. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano are expected to attend.

Tru-indy disinfo:

Doesn't POTUS start his day with some exercises, a light breakfast, voracious reading of media and briefing papers... all well before the first hour on his public schedule?

"President Obama starts his day with his routine presidential briefing at 9:30 a.m."

Yet scrivener50 says
"Your comment, while inaccurate, reveals your likely identity and the unconstitutionality of your "op."

Thanks for the confirming disinfo. It is extremely helpful to the cause of justice."

It doesn't matter because Obama is not legally President.

Scribes, correspondents and producers:

Still-secret Bush Justice Department memos are believed to have approved the covert use of classified, silent microwave radiation weapons on U.S. citizens -- "targeted" under the pretext of the "war on terror" as "undesirables" and "dissidents."

Victims, including the journalist who authored the articles linked below, say these painful, debilitating and illness-inducing microwave assaults constitute torture and "slow-kill" (a military descriptive) homicide -- what could be described as an American genocide.

Victims of these assaults say their family finances are decimated by an array of secret "programs of personal financial destruction" that involve the forced cooperation of private enterprise; surveillance and interception of mail and telecommunications; and the forging of billing, utility, banking and mortgage statements -- what they charge is a process of expropriation and theft by deception.

Sources say these covert programs were justified by the Bush Justice Department under legal theories that are said to include a suspected "nexus to terrorism" and, according to a source, the legal theory that weapons testing and/or medical experimentation on U.S. citizens is permissible if subjects are under federal investigation for suspected offenses.

These microwave weapons assaults have continued under the Obama administration, and are facilitated by an "extrajudicial punishment network" enabled by federal agencies; local police nationwide; and "community gang stalker" citizen vigilantes fronted by government-funded community policing and volunteer organizations.


Victims have asked the FBI/Justice Department to launch a civil rights investigation. They say officials have told them they see nothing to investigate, and hint that victim accounts are delusional.

Victims maintain that marginalizing the persecuted as "unstable" or "mentally ill" is a tactic being used to cover up crimes against humanity, a highly organized and well-funded social genocide.



• Silent, covert microwave radiation weapons assaults on innocent but "targeted" U.S. citizens;

• Terroristic vigilante community gang stalking, surreptitious home entry, police-tolerated vandalism;

• Secret federal "programs of personal financial destruction."
