The projected path of Hurricane Irene is more westerly than believed yesterday and is aimed right at Washington, DC.

Congressman Bob Goodlatte has stated that Barack Obama will be investigated if enough evidence surfaces.

“As you know, President Obama recently released to the public the long-form version of his birth certificate. Since then, concerns have been raised about the validity of the birth certificate as well as the claim that the President has been using a Social Security Number previously issued to another person. These concerns have been raised with the relevant oversight committees in the Congress and if there is enough evidence and more experts reach the same conclusions then these claims will lead to an investigation.”

We have the evidence.
