The First Lady

Local High School to Get a Commencement Visit from the First Lady

By Garance Franke-Ruta
First lady Michelle Obama will be the 2009 commencement speaker at a local District public charter school, the White House announced today.

She will speak to the graduating class of the Washington Mathematics Science Technology Public Charter High School on June 9.

Obama will also deliver the May 16 commencement speech to University of California, Merced. The university opened in 2005 and this will be its first full senior class. UC Merced students "actively sought out the First Lady as commencement speaker by writing letters to Mrs. Obama, her office, and her friends and family," the White House said.

I am sure she will extol the benefits of her affirmative action education.

This is a good opportunity for the First Lady to expand on the topic of her college thesis.

Mrs. Obama: Please take note.



ATTENTION: Rahm Emanuel, WH Chief of Staff; David Axelrod, senior advisor (please forward)

It is a known scientific fact that radiation emanating from electromagnetic fields (or electromagnetic-emitting devices) can cause headaches, mood and behavioral changes, even adverse physical effects such as the induction of injury or illness.

Is it possible that high-tech communications (or security protection) devices or weaponry in the vicinity of POTUS and/or other high officials of government are causing physiological effects that could be affecting their sense of well-being -- perhaps even endangering their health?

Given the advanced state of White House telecommunications and security technology, President Obama and his key staff should commission an independent scientific field study to assess the presence and potential health hazards of both prolonged and pulsed-beam microwave radiation in and around the environment of high government officials.
