  • (Hawaiian) Document Expert Could Topple Obama Administration

    There have been many lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President—most based on the fact that Obama is not a natural born citizen, his father being a Kenyan. Other lawsuits challenge the validity of Obama’s PDF long-form birth certificate, riddled with strange anomalies like multiple layers and eight different fonts. The lawsuits have all crashed and burned in flames for two reasons: 1. The court hearing the lawsuits have treated the cases as a joke instead of a valid question of Constitutional requirements. And 2. The plaintiffs haven’t had Reed Hayes on their side. Reed Hayes is a forensic...

  • Team Arpaio: Obama ID 'Document' Fraud Could Lead To Mail And Wire Fraud; Missing Obama Year

    Lt. Mike Zullo in a weekend radio interview revealed that Barack Obama's August 4, 1961 birthday may not actually be true. Zullo stated that August 4, 1961 could have been the day the plane from Kenya landed in Hawaii and was used as Obama's birthday for the record. He made the allegation that the birth certificate that Perkins Coie lawyer Judith Corley flew to Hawaii to get and return it to Washington was not the document that was presented to the American public on April 27,2011. For more stunning information from Mike Zullo, listen to the two part interview.

    When outraged carnivore Clara Peller shrieked "Where's the beef?" back in 1984, she never would have meant to inspire acts of violent retribution for paltry fast-food portions. But a Georgia man kicked Old Peller's rally cry up a notch early Sunday morning when he fire-bombed his local Taco Bell for skimping on the meat in his two Chalupas. Returning home from the drive-thru, the customer opened his less than satisfactory tostadas and called the taco chain, demanding to be made whole. The manager, Cynthia Thompson, explained to him that since the restaurant was closing, the matter couldn't be resolved that...

    President Barack Obama told an audience on the first stop of his bus tour that his original deficit reduction plan could have solved the nation’s debt problem “tomorrow” but House Speaker John Boehner walked away from the deal. “The fact of the matter is that solving our debt and deficit problems simply requires all of us to share in a little bit of sacrifice, all of us to be willing to do a little bit more to get this country back on track and that’s not too much to ask,” Obama told a crowd in Cannon Falls, Minnesota on Monday.

    A Tea Party manifest it isn’t. That’s the immediate reaction (if you lean toward the Tea Party end of the political spectrum) that comes from reading the Republicans’ new Pledge to America. This is not a call to arms for revolutionaries. The pledge does not advocate the elimination of the Department of Energy or Department of Education (as some Republican congressional do), call for private Social Security accounts or suggest the transformation of federal entitlement programs. (Perhaps that’s why the GOP’s most famous incumbent reformer, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., was nowhere to be seen when Minority Leader John Boehner and...

You scrape them together into a pink mass, inject them with a chemical to kill the e.coli, and sell them to fast food restaurants to make into hamburgers.

    A creepy string of calf mutilations in southern Colorado has a rancher and sheriff's officials mystified. Four calves were found dead in a pasture just north of the New Mexico state line in recent weeks. The dead calves had their skins peeled back and organs cleared from the rib cage. One calf had its tongue removed. But rancher Manuel Sanchez has found no signs of human attackers, such as footprints or ATV tracks. And there are no signs of an animal attack by a coyote or mountain lion. Usually predators leave pools of blood or drag marks from carrying away...

    Unless a dramatic and historical flurry of activity occurs in the next 9 weeks, 2007 will rank as a historically inactive TC year for the Northern Hemisphere as a whole. During the past 30 years, only 1977, 1981, and 1983 have had less activity to date (January-TODAY, Accumulated Cyclone Energy). For the period of June 1 - TODAY, only 1977 has experienced LESS tropical cyclone activity than 2007. For the North Atlantic basin, Tropical Storm Noel is currently too weak to impact any of these results. However, one should always be prepared for late-season developments since hurricane season ends on...

    Science Daily — PHILADELPHIA -- The "French paradox" -- the perplexing disconnect between France's rich cuisine and slender population -- can be explained in part by portions that are significantly smaller in French restaurants and supermarkets than in their American counterparts. So say researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and CNRS in Paris, who compared the size of restaurant meals, single-serve foods and cookbook portions on both sides of the Atlantic. "The French paradox is only a paradox if one assumes that dietary fat is the major cause of obesity and cardiovascular disease," said Paul Rozin, professor of psychology at...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the 2005-06 budget yesterday amid an orgy of self-congratulation among California's leaders, who were proud to miss the constitutional deadline of June 15 by a few weeks instead of the usual few months. Unfortunately, while the relatively quick agreement on the budget is welcome, the $117.5 billion spending plan is anything but. If the stakes weren't so high, the Sacramento types' celebration of their new comity would seem like, well, comedy. Consider the points raised by Sen. Tom McClintock, as ever the skunk at the Capitol picnic: The 2004-05 budget had a gap of only $2...

    Boy, is this gutsy, huh. Conservatism is a paranoid, fearful personal philosophy and embracing it is a sign of emotional weakness. By its very definition, conservatism is opposed to progress. Conservatives believe we ought to "conserve" existing institutions and social norms, speaking from a positions which is always on the verge of being "led astray," and reflecting with an imperfect memory on the topics of fictional "Greatest Generations" and "Golden Ages." Nothing that sets itself against progress can claim to be on the side of good. Accordingly, conservatives, however nice they might otherwise be, for turning their energies against a...

    Brian Whitaker Monday May 31, 2004 The Guardian The weekend carnage in Khobar came less than a month after Saudi Arabia vowed to "strike with an iron fist" against militants who carried out attacks and said it was making every effort to protect foreigners in the kingdom. "The government is doing all it can to protect all residents," the foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, told a news conference. Such assurances have been heard before and will no doubt be heard again, though whether they are likely to cut much ice with the foreign workers on whom the kingdom depends is...

    Tree That Give Meat Instead Of Fruit!Friday May 16, 2003 By MICHAEL CHIRON MANCHESTER, England -- Here's some good news that vegetarians can really sink their teeth into: Researchers have developed genetically engineered fruit trees that bear real meat! Fruit from the new Meat Trees, developed by British scientists using gene-splicing technology, closely resembles ordinary grapefruit. But when you peel the large fruit open, inside is fresh beef. "Our trees may sound like something out of a science fiction movie, but it's really a simple, down-to-earth idea whose time has come," declares Dr. Vincent Tartley, director of agricultural bioengineering research...

    Democratic activists want to get a better idea of how the party's presidential candidates for 2004 measure up - so they're scheduling "cattle calls" to parade them in front of voters in early states and key interest groups. Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry and Missouri Rep. Dick Gephardt plan to speak to Democrats in Linn County, Iowa, on Saturday. "We wanted to have a look at the candidates out there," said Joel Miller, chairman of the Linn County Democrats. "We're not hearing a lot of challenges to the president.
