THERE’S ONLY ONE CITIZENSHIP QUESTION TO ASK OBAMA & IT’S NOT, “WHERE’S YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE?”

No person except a Natural Born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States,at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution shall be eligible to the Office of President… Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the Constitution

We’ve ALL been asking the wrong questions about Obama’s citizenship … demanding the wrong proof! Instead of asking where is Obama’s long form birth certificate, or asking for him for the production of the myriad records that verify he is who he says he is, we should be asking Obama to prove that he wasn’t born aBritishNatural Born Citizen. One is a natural born citizen at the moment of birth with the family lineage or the bloodline of the father the prime determining factor of birthright and citizenship. To be a natural born citizen of the U.S. both parents must be U.S. citizens at the time of a child’s birth. One can become a naturalized citizen but the status/identifier  of “natural born citizen” cannot be conferred or acquired at some future date in the same manner that SR 511 attempted with John McCain. In other words, saying it doesn’t make it so! Anyone who has read about Obama’s ineligibility to be POTUS at length is bound to have read J.B. Williams posts at Canada Free Press here and here. He is the only writer to investigate who has been behind the Quashing of Obama’s birth certificate issues in detail. It was one of his recent posts that triggered approaching Obama’s Natural Born Citizen status from a different perspective.

Webster’s definition establishes birthright as “Any right or privilege, to which a person is entitled by birth, such as an estate descendible by law to an heir, or civil liberty under a free constitution.” Such as, a child inherits his/her father’s name automatically at birth, as well as heir to his fortune and his citizenship. No man-made laws are needed. In every civilized nation on earth, the “natural born child” automatically inherits their father’s name and all other related birthrights upon birth, with no statute required.

If Barack Hussein Obama’s father had been a legal citizen of the U.S. at the time of Barack II birth, Barack II would enjoy not only his father’s name, but his citizenship in the United States as well, and no man-made law could block his birthright to status as a “natural born citizen” of the USA. However, Obama’s father was at no time a citizen of the USA. He was at all known times in his life, a citizen of Kenya, which at the time was still under British rule. Barack Hussein Obama II father was a legal citizen of Kenya. As the “natural born” son of Barack Hussein Obama I, Barack Obama II is the “natural born citizen” of Kenya, which is why his family, friends and the press referred to him as “Kenyan Born” all the way up until he decided to run for the office of president.

History answers the question of what “natural born citizen” means, and leaves NO wiggle room for debate or wishful agenda-driven interpretations.

OBAMA BUYERS REMORSE ON MORNING JOE

Here’s an oldie but goodie that’s sums up how most of the country is feeling about faux President Obama, particularly former supporters !

Watching Morning Joe this morning was great fun. Seems buyers remorse is thick and heavy. OK, OK they didn’t use the word idiot, but Mika, Joe, and the gang lambasted Obama in every way possible.

Here’s some of what they said …

From the Daily Beast’s Tina Brown … “One could make a case that Hillary Clinton was right about Obama and the 3 a.m. ad.” Tina, do ya think?

Scarborough and the other talking heads opined that:

If there was a website called Obama Remorse it would be one of the most popular websites in the country. Business people who voted for Obama are REALLY sorry for their vote.

There’s 3 trillion dollars sitting on the sidelines that businesses are not investing … fully 1 trillion sitting out of the country that will not be brought back until the business climate improves.

Obama doesn’t understand business people and thinks of them as the enemy!

Top Democratic leaders call Scarborough on a regular basis to talk about how incompetent BHO is … usually leading off with, “Can you believe what he’s done this week?”

There’s no one on Obama’s team that’s a Washington grownup … translated that means someone who understands Washington and how it works. Jim Baker’s name repeatedly came up in admiration. He’s surrounded by Harvard elitists with no practical experience.

This one was from Mika (one of my favorite Founding Fathers is Lincoln) Brzezinski, “there seems to be a disconnect … he doesn’t know how to bring both sides together.”

Obama’s taking 18 months to bring Mitch McConnell into the White House for a meeting is unforgivable … not to mention stupid in my book.

Obama’s lost and has no idea what he doing … he still doesn’t get it … bla, bla, bla …

Like I said, great fun this morning!

5 OBAMA CITIZENSHIP QUESTIONS FOX NEWS, MSNBC, OR CNN WILL NOT ANSWER

Want to have some fun? See if you can get anyone in the media to answer the following questions. They avoid every question about citizenship at all costs … pretending it is a simple matter for discussion when it is not.

1. What’s the difference between a natural born citizen and a naturalized citizen?

2. How many types of US citizenship are there?

3. Hasn’t paternity always determined the “natural born status” of a child?

4. How can Obama be a Natural Born Citizen of the U.S. if his father was a British subject?

5. If Obama is really a British Natural Born Citizen how can he be a Natural Born Citizen of the U.S.?

WITH THE MIDTERMS OVER IT’S TIME TO ADDRESS OBAMA’S REMOVAL FROM OFFICE

With the midterm elections over and the Obama/Pelosi/Reid policies clearly repudiated in the GOP/Tea Party tsunami, it is time to address Obama’s removal from office in a thoughtful reasoned manner.

An ineligible President cannot be impeached because he was never legally elected to office. A Poseur President either has to resign or be removed in some other fashion.

Obama has never been eligible to hold the office of President of the United States, the most powerful position in the world …Constitutionally reserved for those born of two U.S. citizens and on U.S. soil or a U.S. territory.

The undisputed facts are very clear.

1. Obama’s father was a British subject … no dispute there. Whether Obama was born in Kenya or Hawaii is immaterial, PERIOD! His British father automatically disqualifies Barack Obama. No one, including Obama, disputes his father’s nationality.

2. His mother gave birth as minor, therefore she was not able to automatically confer her citizenship to her son. In fact, Obama’s father was a Natural Born British Subject by Common Law and the 1948 British Nationality Act.

Further referring to Obama’s mother:

The mandates of the Act of 1948 are clear, once an underage, then married wife of a British subject entered Canada to gain entranced to another colonial state in Kenya, flying through London of Britain, Stanley Ann Obama was a British wife, carrying a British child within her with full benefits and legal rights and responsibilities forever upon her and Barack Jr.

3. Argue, if you will that Obama was possibly born a dual citizen … it doesn’t matter and that’s why the MSM, most of the corrupt Congress, and the judiciary have remained silent.

Enough time has passed that we can ask and answer the following question, “with the exception of citizenry of the U.S., who in Congress and the Courts didn’t know Obama was ineligible to hold office?”

The answer is just about everyone knew Obama was ineligible, and that includes those clowns in the MSM, the cable news networks, and numerous talking heads and pundits on the Right and the Left.

Anyone holding a law degree knew, including 212 members of Congress, and paid talking heads like Jeffery Toobin, Joe Scarborough, Ann Coulter, Judge Napolitano, Jonathan Turly, Chris Matthews, John Dean, and JournnoListers across the country … all knew!

Today, a better question to ask  is who among our allies and enemies doesn’t know Obama is a fraudulent President?

This is from Pravda:

What we know for sure that makes aka Obama ineligible

There isn’t one single, credible source that has any concrete facts whatsoever, that Obama was born in Hawaii.

Here’s a surprise! Hawaii’s Department of Education has been unable to find AKA Obama’s Kindergarten records. By this time maybe you are no longer surprised.

Obama’s Noelani Elementary School Kindergarten records, oddly missing from the State of Hawaii Department of Education, is the first in a series of chronological “coincidences” that obscure AKA Obama’s history.

Although Obama has had a first-class education that spanned 25 years, there is only a single document that has ever been released, the application for entrance to the Franciscus Assisi Primary School (next item) — and that document was discovered by independent investigators.

This is from the European Union Times:

Entire US Government Said Knows Obama Ineligible For Office

Members from all three branches of the Federal government already know that Barack Hussein Obama is ineligible for the office of President. National leaders, to include members of the US Supreme Court, already know that Barack Hussein Obama is not a “natural born citizen” of the United States of America, and therefore, is ineligible for the office he currently holds. (See JB’s new article on The Bottom Line on Natural Born Citizen)

What they don’t know is how long it will take for most Americans to figure it out, or what to do about it.

The diversionary search for an authentic birth certificate is ongoing and Obama has now spent in excess of $2 million in legal fees to keep that search alive.

Eric Holder’s Department of Justice continues to deploy taxpayer funded attorneys around the country to file dismissals on behalf of Obama, denying all American citizens access to the courts as a peaceful remedy, which only fuels the fire of discontent and the questions about Obama persist.

Here’s another question. How long before allies and enemies of our country start using Obama’s illegitimacy for office against this country?

Did the thought ever cross your mind that maybe the reason those defensive missiles were removed from Poland and the Czech Republic was because Putin put an ineligibility gun to Obama’s head! BTW, Russia gains from a weakened American space program.  Another ineligibility gun?

Is that why Obama wants U.S. astronauts to hitch a ride with Russia on all future rides to the space station we built?

Remember every law, every treaty enacted, every action under Obama does not have the force of law because he was never legally eligible to hold office. This is an excerpt written by constitutional lawyer, Dr. Edwin Vieira, before the election in 2008.

As nothing but an usurper (if he becomes one), Obama will have no conceivable authority “to make Treaties”, or to “nominate and appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not otherwise provided for [in the Constitution]” (Article II, Section 2, Clause 2). And therefore any “Treaties” or “nominations, and appointments” he purports to “make” will be void ab initio, no matter what the Senate does, because the Senate can neither authorize an usurper to take such actions in the first place, nor thereafter ratify them. One need not be a lawyer to foresee what further, perhaps irremediable, chaos must ensue if an usurper, even with “the Advice and Consent of the Senate”, unconstitutionally “appoint[s] Judges of the Supreme Court” whose votes thereafter make up the majorities that wrongly decide critical “Cases” of constitutional law.

This is from Dr. Kate’s blog …Make no mistake,

we are facing a corrupt judiciary, one which has scorned this constitutional question and laughed at avoiding it. We understand that the entire Congress willfully ignored their oath of office while others actively committed fraud against the American people and the 50 states. The fraud is deep and widespread, which means that we the people are going to have to enforce the constitution, and make them enforce it.

The world is watching. Either this is a nation of laws or it isn’t. If we don’t have the strength to enforce our own laws and respect our Constitution, why should anyone in the world respect us?


7 REASONS WHY THE DEMOCRATS CAN NEVER BE TRUSTED TO RUN THIS COUNTRY AGAIN

DENVER: OBAMA SIGNS DEMOCRAT$ STIMULUS BILLWe are 24 hours away from an election tsunami for the GOP and the Tea Party candidates.

Absent massive nationwide voter fraud, scores of Democrats including the despised Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will be swept from office.

The voters of this country are energized, angry, sick and tired of being dissed by the tone deaf, obnoxious, overbearing Democratic majority of the 111th Congress.

This election is a referendum on our fake President’s policies including Obamacare, the failed Stimulus, the deficits and bailouts … the 34 Czars, the excuses, theconstant Bush bellyaching and blaming, the unrelenting10% unemployment.

While all of this is happening, it’s important to remember why we can never trust this group of miscreant legislators ever again.

  • Progressives Reign- First and foremost, Progressives are not Democrats as we have seen since the theft of Hillary’s nomination by the DNC, Pelosi, Howard Dean, et al. Every act since has been orchestrated by a group ideological extremists who used the Democratic Party in order to get power knowing full well if the American people knew who they really were, they’d have been booted out.

As long as the Progressives control the Democratic Party they can NEVER BE TRUSTED to do what’s right for this country and its citizens.

  • Faux President Obama-He was born a Brit, possibly a dual citizen, definitely not a Natural Born Citizen and definitely not eligible to hold the office of POTUS. Whether he was born in Hawaii or Kenya, his citizenship was determined by his father, a British subject and foreign student studying abroad when he was born.
  • Disdain for the Constitution- Obama says it is a flawed document. Many members of Congress are on record saying much of what they do isn’t in the Constitution and they don’t care!
  • Economic Incompetency -If there has ever been a dumber, more incompetent group attempting to run this country’s economy I’d like to know where to find them. It is not insignificant that not one of Obama’s team has ever created a real job. They feign hatred of profit while they line their pockets with taxpayers money.
  • Crude & Mean Spirited Bullies that use Divisive Tactics -The country has never been more racially divided, thanks in part to Obama’s narrow view of race relations and the race  hustlers and race baiters who now feel they have free reign to come out and bully any one whose opinion differs from the party orthodoxy.
  • Disdain for the American people - As history will note, the 111th Congress was the most COUNTERPRODUCTIVE of ALL time. They passed bills at a record pace without reading them and AGAINST the peoples will. The sleazy deals will also go down as the most obscene and blatant vote buying recorded in modern political history.
  • Selective Enforcement of the Law - Obama’s “Justice” Department has displayed selective enforcement of the law… just ask Jan Brewer and the citizens of Arizona. We witnessed voter intimidation being ignored in Philadelphia because the victims were white Americans.

BTW, the Justice Department’s lawyers who have been defending Obama’s citizenship problems have argued in court that even if Obama’s citizenship makes him ineligible for POTUS that American citizens have no standing to challenge him. HOWEVER, Mexico and several South American countries are allowed to challenge Arizona’s illegal immigration law recently passed.

LET THAT SINK IN!

I’D RATHER VOTE FOR A HAM SANDWICH THAN A DEMOCRAT

Ham SandwichAs we race ever closer to the November elections it is abundantly clear this is going to be a landslide against the Progressive/Democrats, Pelosi, Reid, and the Faux President occupying the the White House.

A registered Democrat, a moderate who hates extremism in every form … there is nothing that can get me to vote for a Democrat in this election short of having a gun pointed to the back of my head.

The 2008 Democratic Party bears no resemblance to the Democratic Party I grew up with and thought I knew. This group of hypocrites, deceivers, and liars deserves to be booted out of office. Obamaland has brought the country a fake president, failed health care policies, devastating economic policies, and debt farther than the eye can see.

I was reading Texas Darlin describing her feelings about what happened to Juan Williams, NPR, Fox News … thinking her words and thoughts mirror mine and countless thousands others across the country. There are so many parallels between NPR’s hypocrisy and the current crew in Congress … clearly capable of saying one thing and turning around and doing another.

[...] I used to be a member of the Liberal Hypocrisy Club myself. It wasn’t until the mainstream liberal media made Hillary-bashing a habitual art form in 2008 that I turned to FOX in desperation, and thereupon made a humble discovery: FOX News, liberal broadcasting enemy #1, is actually fair and balanced. Regular appearances on FOX by Juan Williams, Alan Colmes, and other liberal commentators consistently prove it. CNN just pretends to be balanced and MSNBC long ago became Obama’s obnoxious mouthpiece.

The only difference between TD and myself is that I saw the hypocrisy of the MSM first hand when Imus was booted for a thoughtless, stupid remark. By the time Obama hit the scene I was prepared. What I wasn’t prepared for was the treason and felonious acts that brought an ineligible  President, legislation to force this country into Socialism, the cowardice of the judiciary, etc.

So, as November 2nd approaches I’ve gotta go.  I’m stocking up on ham don’t ya know!

REMOVING OBAMA …IT CAN’T HAPPEN FAST ENOUGH!

For your Saturday afternoon pleasure:


According to a new Gallup poll President Barack Obama’s approval rating has dropped more than 18 points since taking office to an all-time low of 44.7 percent.  ( And the choir sang, BOO, HOO!)

You need an Obama BS removal kit!

McCAIN’S INELIGIBILITY TO RUN FOR POTUS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR FAKE PRESIDENT OBAMA

One of the greatest lessons that I learned from the 2008 presidential elections was that Democrats would rather elect a constitutionally ineligible foreign-born enemy of this country and its constitution rather than elect a Republican. Even if that Republican was a “Republican in name only” and even if that Republican self ascribes himself as a Maverick, which is code for “I screw Republicans over all the time just like you Democrats.” from Creating Orwellian World

It started when the Senate decided to make an exception for John McCain, a Vietnam war hero who spent 5 1/2 years as a POW in the Hanoi Hilton enduring the most despicable forms of torture. McCain’s parents were both born US citizens, yet he was not constitutionally eligible to run for the office of POTUS. Circumstances he could not control, having been born outside of the United States in an unincorporated territory, disqualified his birth as a Natural Born Citizen. Citizenship occurs at birth, and the Constitution’s very specific requirement for this office are clear. How unfair! Had his birth taken place at home there wouldn’t be a question of his eligibility; but it didn’t. His ineligibility had to do with where he was born, outside the United States in a hospital in the Panama Canal Zone. It was a quirk; the Hand of Fate possibly. It was John McCain’s place of birth that did him in as it were, even though unlike Obama both of his parents were born citizens of this country. I can appreciate his colleagues in and out of the Congress seeking a way to by-pass or overlook this VERY SPECIFIC requirement for President. The solution was clear. Look the other way and bypass the Constitution, again! The bill was introduced by Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and (ironically) co-sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) and Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY)! Senate Resolution 511 was/is not a law. It is feel good legislation that is opinion without the effect of law! That didn’t stop any of these actors. Presto Chango, McCain’s eligibility problems were solved… forget the unintended consequences! Screw the Hand of Fate and Screw the Constitution, never mind that if the NBC Clause was really so pernicious that Congress could pass a Constitutional amendment to rectify the situation LEGALLY! Congress didn’t want to be bothered to follow that dusty ole document that they were sworn to uphold. Apparently we have become a Nation of Laws, but only when it suits our legislators! (the choir sang Amen and so did the legal community) Let me state the obvious.If John McCain really was a Natural Born Citizen there was no need to pass SR511; he wasn’t! McCain was ineligible to run for POTUS and he knew it, his lawyers, Theodore Olson and Laurence Tribe knew it, and so did the many Senators that voted on SR511. The Senate passed Senate Resolution 511 declaring that John McCain was a Natural Born Citizen thus making him eligible to run for the office of POTUS. McCain’s ineligibility problem was solved regardless of what it meant for the future. So how did we get from SR 511 to a Constitutional fraud sitting in the White House? Well, it should be obvious. The Senate made an exception for McCain. The problem is when one exception is made how is it possible to not grant another exception? The Senate HAD TO look the other way and remain silent. These fools were compromised! Barack Obama’s no fool.When he co-sponsored SR511 and he knew exactly what he was doing. He boxed in the Senate and he boxed in McCain. This is where the MSM became an active participant in the fraud. Can you say JournoLists? Any mention of McCain’s citizenship problems were immediately deflected. Bring up McCain’s problems and Obama’s problems are even more evident! On more than one occasion I heard Chris Matthews silence a guest when he attempted to mention this topic. No, no, no! NO discussions of what it means to be a Natural Born Citizen on his show! During the ’08 campaign the McCain team went around issuing statements that they had “investigated” the Obama Citizenshiprumors and found them to be without merit! To hear the McCain Campaign team talk, one would have thought they were reading from the same talking points as the MSM.

McCain Campaign Investigated, Dismissed Obama Citizenship Rumors While they ruled out any chance of the Birther lawsuits holding up in court, lawyers for the McCain campaign did check into the rumors about Obama’s birth and the assertions made by Berg and others. “To the extent that we could, we looked into the substantive side of these allegations,” said Potter. We never saw any evidence that then-Senator Obama had been born outside of the United States. We saw rumors, but nothing that could be sourced to evidence. There were no statements and no documents that suggested he was born somewhere else. On the other side, there was proof that he was born in Hawaii. There was a certificate issued by the state’s Department of Health, and the responsible official in the state saying that he had personally seen the original certificate. There was a birth announcement in the Honolulu Advertiser, which would be very difficult to invent or plant 47 years in advance.

Look at the statement above. There is only one word for it… shameful! What’s worse is that McCain has called his opponent in the November ’10 election, J.D. Hayworth, a Birther. This was arrogance and hypocrisy on the grandest scale. The tag line to McCain’s political ad against J.D. Hayworth CHARACTER MATTERS! ARGH!

OBAMA’S CONSTITUTIONAL DEFIANCE

Obama had bigger problems than McCain. He was born a British citizen AND he admitted this on his website when he was running for POTUS. Obama, Citizen of World, George Soros puppet, had found a way to defy the flawed document and sit in the office of real Presidents and Patriots. Now he had the upper hand; the exception had already been made and there was no one to step in and right the wrong. This was a very clever way for Obama and all those in the legal community, Congress, and the MSM who have always hated the Natural Born Citizen clause to establish precedent! There was cowardice everywhere. No one was going to take down a man who could bring hundreds of thousands of adoring fans in here and abroad to listen to him read from his teleprompter. No one was going to take down “America’s first black President”. Bill and Hillary tried bringing this to our attention, but Team Obama and the MSM were decimating them at every turn, calling them racists! Many of the Clinton’s closest advisers became traitors and stabbed Hillary in the back. No, no one was going to take Hillary or Bill serious if they used a full frontal assault. The Journolists in the MSM would protect him no matter what. Obama knew that as we watched in horror as this fake was sworn into office. No, not even the Supreme Court could or would stop him now! There were cowards and compromised bastards everywhere! The most important aspect of Obama’s faux presidency is that if it is allowed to remain, that is if Obama is not removed from office before the 2012 election, the precedent set by having a British born subject become POTUS will change this country forever. The law breakers (Pelosi, Dean, the DNC, and their supporting actor/players) will have accomplished a bloodless coup d’etat. Which brings me to ask Senator McCain the following questions. Senator McCain:

  • How much more damage does Team Obama have to do to this country before you “man up” and do the right thing?
  • How do you sleep at night knowing that LT. Col. Lakin may go to prison defending the Constitution while you remain silent. He has put his career on the line for asking Obama to prove he is eligible to hold office and yet you remain silent!
  • Was your run for the presidency really worth the damage inflicted on this country with faux President Obama?
  • Remember when words like integrity and honor were used to describe John McCain?

SATURDAY AM LAUGH or HOW THE DEVIL MESSES WITH OBAMA

Posted with apologies to all in advance.

(H/T HaHa Youre Dead)


One day in the distant future, former President Obama has a heart-attack and dies.

He immediately goes to hell, where the devil is waiting for him.


“I don’t know what to do here,” says the devil. “You are on my list, but I have no room for you. You definitely have to stay here, so I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. I’ve got a couple of folks here who weren’t quite as bad as you. I’ll let one of them go, but you have to take their place. I’ll even let YOU decide who leaves.”

Obama thought that sounded pretty good, so the devil opened the door to the first room.

In it was Ted Kennedy and a large pool of water. Ted kept diving in, and surfacing, empty handed. Over, and over, and over he dived in and surfaced with nothing. Such was his fate in hell.

“No,” Obama said. “I don’t think so. I’m not a good swimmer, and I don’t think I could do that all day long.”

The devil led him to the door of the next room.

In it was Al Gore with a sledgehammer and a room full of rocks. All he did was swing that hammer, time after time after time.

“No, this is no good; I’ve got this problem with my shoulder. I would be in constant agony if all I could do was break rocks all day,” commented Obama.

The devil opened a third door. Through it, Obama saw Bill Clinton, lying on the bed, his arms tied over his head, and his legs restrained in a spread-eagle pose. Bent over him was Monica Lewinsky, doing what she does best.

Obama looked at this in shocked disbelief, and finally said, “Yeah man, I can handle this.”

The devil smiled and said .. . . . .

“OK, Monica, you’re free to go.”

Hey, I’m sorry … the Devil made me do it!

HOW GOD MESSES WITH OBAMA

Don’t tell me God doesn’t have a sense of humor …

Funny in any language.

Here we go again!

Hey, remember the mystery rodent?

Here we go again … and again!

Remember this one? This year a violent thunderstorm forced Poseur Barack Obama to cancel his Memorial Day address at  the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery  (more on violent storms below!)

Don’t believe our Creator has a vested interest in our Republic?

Here’s a piece of trivia worth remembering.  If you believe that Divine Providence played a hand in the founding of this country then this will come as no surprise to you.

During the War of 1812, after the British burned the White House (in retaliation for our burning of a Canadian capital years before) they were intent on the complete destruction of  Washington D.C.

In what can only be described as an incredible freak of nature … or possibly Divine Intervention … a hurricane descended on the city and the rest of Washington was saved.

The hurricane, accompanied by numerous tornadoes (!) happened within hours of the White House having been burnt to the ground.  More here:

The British occupied Washington, D.C. for only 26 hours.  Invaded on a blistering hot August day, the nation’s capital had not seen rain for at least three weeks.  As the exhausted foreigners looted and then burned the government’s buildings, they were astonished by something that Washingtonians saw as the hand of Providence attempting to scatter the invaders.  On that very evening, August 24th, as Washington’s buildings burned, a hurricane swept through the city, causing more damage, but also drenching the capital with torrential rains which extinguished the fires.  The hurricane was followed by numerous tornadoes which caused destruction among the British occupiers and drove them back to their ships, which had also been damaged by the storm.

OK, OK for the skeptics among you who believe this was just a coincidence, I have only one thing to ask.  Hey, where’s that fly swatter?
