More nutjobs coming out of the woodwork! They are now saying President Obama and his administration are responsible for engineering Hurricane Sandy to impact and thus win the election. Oh geez. The Conspiracy Theorists and the Tele-evangelists need to have a sit down and just hammer this out - Who is ultimately responsible for Hurricane Sandy?
Is it God? Obama? or the Gays?
As Hurricane Sandy blasts the eastern seaboard just over a week before Election Day, a number of conspiracy theorists have decided President Barack Obama engineered the mega-storm to secure his re-election.
InfoWars.com, TheIntelHub.com, and ConsfearacyNewz all posted stories over the last several days alleging that The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP, helped the president engineer Sandy.
HAARP, a research program managed by the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy, studies and conducts experiments relating to the ionosphere, or upper atmosphere. As NASA explains on its web site, the ionosphere is important because it often reflects radio waves and scatters GPS signals, leading to "a big impact on communications and navigation" on Earth.
Because of this, conspiracy theorists have blamed HAARP for a number of natural events over the years, saying the government uses the Alaska-based program to manipulate the weather with the help of electromagnetic waves.
On Friday, InfoWars published a story arguing that Sandy "will undoubtedly produce widespread chaos and present an ideal opportunity for Obama to come off as a strong and decisive leader."
"Following the 'perfect storm,'" wrote Infowars' Kurt Nimmo, "the establishment media will naturally provide all the propaganda Obama needs to sweep the election on Tuesday, November 6, a week after the hurricane is projected to hit."
As proof, Nimmo noted that HAARPStatus.com, a site that claims to detect frequency on the ionosphere, is reporting unprecedented levels of HAARP frequency above the Eastern coast. HAARPStatus.com appears to be a site not actually associated with HAARP. Link
So it wasn't really God's wrath upon the gay-loving earth but the Obama Administration who mastermind a secret weapon to bring the perfect storm to win an election? Well tickle me Elmo <and Insert brain fart here>! So we are all witnesses to a new wave of weapon technology the government had used to gain political advantage by targeting several Blue States in the Northeast.
Wouldn't erupting a hurricane in major Red States do less costly damage and possibly reduce the number of voter turnouts - well since, you know, they will be preoccupied and busy cleaning up the aftermath??
Anywho, these Conservative theorists will need to loosen up their tightly wound tinfoil hats and focus on other non-political nonsense like UFOs and Elvis sightings.
And to the rest of you possibly leaning to believe such conspiracy, if Obama can control the weather, Wow! Is this not enough proof to vote for him again? Who do you want on your side? A self-indulged Mormon businessman or the Marvel comic heroine - Storm?
