Mysterious project continues
Politico44 ^ | 10/12/11 | JULIE MASON

White House reporters have tried all their sneakiest reporter tricks to find out what is really going on behind the green construction wall on the North Lawn.

The 44 blog recently witnessed one journalist trying to extract details from a utility worker, to no avail. Trucks come and go from the White House construction site, their company logos covered for security. There is jackhammering, and digging. The cement truck tires get washed off before they leave the site -- no one wants a messy White House driveway.

"A mysterious tunnel is being built, too," the wire service said. So far, the project has attracted the minimum of internet conspiracy theories. But there is still time -- the West Wing portion of the job is expected to cost $86 million and take up to four years to complete.

Maybe the new “undisclosed location”. No one ever said that it had to be far away from the President’s primary location, did they?

Giant statue of himself titled “Dear Leader”.

And it will talk to visitors like the giant cowboy leading into the TX state fair.

I’d hazard a guess that what is being built is what I PREDICTED would soon be built if we ever elected a raghead POTUS. It’s a mosque and a very tall minaret. Wouldn’t that make Slick Willie look like a pitiful hayseed rube, if, while WE were all wee-wee’d up over the threat of a mosque in the GROUND ZERO area of NYC; Zero has one UNDER CONSTRUCTION on the White House grounds?!

If folks had understood Hitler better in the ‘30s, think of all the million of lives that would have lived?

He had his agenda and pursued it openly, only after seizing Poland did anyone grow a set in the PMs office.. FDR was just letting chips fall where they may.. and we stood by and even helped our eventual war opponents grow stronger.. they were waving guns and swords, and not laurels and papers.

It’d be nice to have some cahonies in our leadership today.. or we’re headed the same way .. a massive bombardment of propaganda, out and out illegal operations against this and other countries residents, a media blind to all of it pushing a moderate tone.. at best.. and will continue in a clearly (OCCUPY’d) mode at its worst.

Likely this is a shrine to Obama, his handiwork.. and it will tilt left, way left. Moochelle’s will be sitting.

Dems have been talking about 'suspending elections' - that's 'bunker mentality' all right...
