"...Obama isn’t just lying about his identity. He’s lying about his military service record, too. While his political opponents in 2008 attacked him for never serving, in truth, he was concealing his participation in a hidden CIA intergalactic program hosted at a California community college in 1980."

Obama was one of 10 youths selected to secretly teleport to and from Mars . . . Between 1981 and 1983, Obama is supposed to have visited Mars twice, by way of a teleportation chamber called a “jump room.”

Wasn't this show on Nickelodeon? You know, there was the blond kid, the ginger, the nerd, the spunky girl, the dark-haired broody boy, the twins, the Asian girl and the cool black dude? Looked just like Barry in that picture.

White House Denies CIA Teleported Obama to Mars

Fuck denial. I'd run with this.

"Jay, there's this report that the President was teleported to Mars..."
"Yes, he was."
"Yes? I don't understand..."
"Yes. The President was teleported to Mars."
"You're confirming this?"
"You're damn right. Next question."

Ignore Basiago and Stillings at your own peril. If Obama’s reelected, the U.S. is finally colonizing Mars.

If there was a candidate who was serious about starting a program to colonize Mars I would vote for them so hard.

You may mock, but has Obama ever been proven to have red blood? Wait, he has? Let me examine the syringe personally, then, since the Founders' trickery knows no bounds. We should also apply the MacReady Test as well. And he can explain his familiarity with Vulcan rituals while we're at it.

This features some excellent bogus conspiracy reporting of the type you find all over the internet, applicable to anything. Very instructive.

"Officially, the White House says Obama never went to Mars."
"It is not known what exactly Obama did on Mars. "
"You can scoff at the idea of Obama on Mars. But it explains a lot."

Of course, he never went there. He's from there which makes all of this just more liberal-media obfuscation.

In 1983 I was in a hell of a lot better shape than I am now.  To get to "work" we had to go 20 at a time into this elevator sized machine.  It was really cramped in there and supposedly instantaneous. However before we'd go whizzing off there were checklists and knobs to adjust.  So we'd have to stand there for hours while engineers kept adjusting and fiddling.

Obama smoked a lot before the missions.  After the first time out with him we all kept breath mints; cause god help you if you were next to lt stinky.  Hours jammed in there unable to turn around and he wants to talk.   

We do our mission and the way back was worse.  No cigarettes over there and you couldn't bring em.  It was cold there.  We're jammed back into the machine, tired and mostly wanting to zone out.  Except Barack gets antsy and even more talky when  he starts withdrawing from the nicotine.  The memories of freezing my ass off, and everyone is huddled together just hoping to get back for a hot shower and wanting to enjoy still being alive.  Yet we can't have a fucking moment of peace 'cause Barack won't STFU.  Also he won't hold still so it takes the engineers forever to get the system setup.

Fucking Mars.  I hate that place.

It makes a lot of sense if you remember that there were eight candidates for the Republican nomination, and that there are eight planets (sorry, Pluto!) Each Republican candidate corresponds to a particular planet.

For example, Santorum corresponds to Uranus.

I wondered into that class by accident once, instead of my Life Drawing class. I thought the model was kind of small and grey and had no dick, which was weird, but I was high as a kite, so I just sat down and didn't say anything. He stared at me for a while, which was weird too, because he was naked and I wasn't sure if he was a chick or not. Finally he kind of yelled at me without moving his mouth and I figured it must be a class in Ventriloquism. I don't how knew my name, but he called me Mister Negative (I wasn't a doctor yet) and said this wasn't my class but I was kind of digging the ventriloquist thing and didn't want to go. The next thing I knew I woke up naked in my car, with one blood shot eye and a weird bump on the back of my head. About par for the course, those days.
