Vice President Biden delivers his latest defense of the Obama administration's economic recovery efforts today at the Brookings Institution, while four Cabinet secretaries will make a series of coordinated appearances to mark the 200th day of the economic recovery program.

As Biden begins his speech in Washington at 10 a.m. ET, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will speak at a Chicago meeting of the Illinois Road and Transportation Builders Association. A half hour later in Minneapolis, Federal Highway Administration Administrator Victor Mendez is scheduled to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the new TH 610 project, the largest stimulus-funded effort in Minnesota. Mendez will be joined by Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D) and Al Franken (D).

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will visit Louisa, Va. in the late morning to highlight a rural water project. He will discuss USDA's progress in meeting its goal of starting 200 new waste and water projects during the second hundred days of the stimulus program. Later in Little Rock, Ark., Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Sen. Mark Pryor (D) will hold a press conference about stimulus projects in the state.

The day's stimulus events conclude with Education Secretary Arne Duncan, who will hold a town hall meeting on education issues and the stimulus in Sacramento. It's one of six events on the secretary's Thursday schedule, which includes meetings with California lawmakers and a back-to-school rally.

Vilsack, Duncan and four other Cabinet secretaries helped mark the first 100 days of the stimulus in May in four key swing states: Colorado, Missouri, Montana and Nevada. Two of Thursday's events will occur in reliably blue California and Illinois, while the other three occur in the "purple states" of Arkansas, Minnesota and Virginia. The White House previously sent Cabinet secretaries to swing states to tout its assistance to rural communities and areas hit hard by the auto industry's collapse.

Endless spending

Economic recovery doesn't help untold thousands of unjustly targeted Americans recover from the devastating physiological effects of being silently irradiated by microwave and laser directed energy weapons -- the weaponization of the electromagnetic spectrum, a silent "final solution" that may have the nation's political leadership in its ideological cross-hairs.

This technology is capable of altering moods, emotions, inducing fatigue, weakness, exhaustion, confusion, life-altering injury, disease and a slow-kill death. And key elements of the Obama administration, chief among them the defense/security/intel establishment, are proliferating these technologies by various modalities -- from hand-held weaponry to satellite and terrestrial cell tower based delivery systems.

By its naivete, its rubber-stamp approval of the deployment of these destructive technologies, the Obama administration is presiding over the destruction of democracy, the rule of law, and personal liberty.

Until the Obama administration realizes that a covert federal-local multi-agency coordinated action "program" is executing a high-tech "final solution" on unjustly targeted Americans -- right under POTUS' nose -- economic recovery amounts to little more than a cruel false hope.

These "targets" also are subject to financial sabotage on the federal and local levels that decimates their livelihoods and financial resources along with their lives.

The bureaucratic saboteurs and Dr. Strangeloves must be removed from power, immediately, before this silent genocide claims more victims.
