Obama and Elites Going to Denver to Escape Catastrophe?

There’s a new conspiracy theory winging around the Internet, and it’s a doozy.
It is claimed Obama and U.S. elites are converging on Denver, Colorado, this week in an effort to escape some impending catastrophe by seeking shelter in that rumored huge underground military base beneath the Denver International Airport.
So what’s this big doomsday catastrophe that is supposed to strike America this week?
I’ve seen two “theories”.
The first is that the comet Elenin will strike Earth!!!
This is what Wikipedia says about Elenin:

Comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin) is a long-period comet discovered by Russian amateur astronomer Leonid Elenin on December 10, 2010 […] At the time of discovery, the comet had an apparent magnitude of 19.5, making it about 150,000 times fainter than can be seen with the naked eye. The discoverer, Leonid Elenin, estimates that the comet nucleus is 3–4 km [1.86 to 2.5 miles] in diameter. […]

C/2010 X1 made its closest approach to the Sun on 10 September 2011 at a distance of […] 44,840,000 mi). Assuming it has not disintegrated, will make its closest approach to the Earth on 16 October 2011, at a distance of […] 21,730,000 mi […] at a relative velocity of [53,438 miles per hour].

Happily, Elenin is or has already disintegrated. On August 29, 2011, UniverseToday reports that:

Astronomers monitoring Comet Elenin have noticed the comet has decreased in brightness the past week, and the coma is now elongating and diffusing. Some astronomers predict the comet will disintegrate and not survive perihelion, its closest approach to the Sun.

On August 19, a massive solar flare and coronal mass ejection hit the comet, which may have been the beginning of the end for the much ballyhooed lump of ice and dirt.

“We’ve been following it in the STEREO spacecraft images and a number of amateurs have been following it in their telescopes,” said Australian amateur astronomer Ian Musgrave, author of the Astroblog website. “Shortly after the coronal mass ejection the comet flared up and you could see some beautiful details in the tail, with the tail was twisting about in the solar wind. But shortly after that Earth- bound amateurs reported a huge decrease in the intensity of the comet. We think it may presage a falling apart of the comet.”  […]

Elenin’s mass is smaller than average and its trajectory will take it no closer than 34 million km (21 million miles) of Earth as it circles the Sun. It will make its closest approach to Earth on October 16th, but be closest to the Sun on Sept. 10.

Australian amateur Michael Mattiazzo has been taking images of the comet (see his website, Southern Comets) and he has noticed that the nucleus appears to be elongating. When that occurs, usually the comet disintegrates or splits apart. Below is an animation Mattiazzo created from images he took of Comet Elenin on August 19, 22, 23, 27 & 29.

The second “theory” is that the elites “know” that there’ll be a massive earthquake in the Central USA — the famous New Madrid faultline.
As George Ure, who loves catastrophes because they help to sell his web-bot predictions, puts it:  The New Madrid quake will be bigger than the 1812 quake! That quake will simultaneously or “shortly after trigger the long-worried La Palme/Cumbre Vieja undersea landslide which could wipe out a good portion of the US Eastern Seaboard.”
What gives so many conspiracy theories a looney-tune reputation is their lack of or utter resistance to empirical verification. If U.S. elites really are going to Denver, surely there must be some way to confirm or disconfirm that.
Yes. Obama indeed will be in Denver tomorrow, after his campaign appearances in California. He is in Silicon Valley today.
What about the members of Congress?
In 2006, the Sunlight Network launched the Punch Clock Campaign in an effort to get members of Congress to post their daily schedules online. Several members, either as a result of the campaign or independently, now post schedules online. According to SourceWatch.org, these are the Representatives and Senators who post their schedules online:


I clicked on the link for John Boehner, but it brought me to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s website, which shows that the calendar for this month, September, has this entire work-week (Monday-Friday, Sept. 26-30) as “Constituent Work Week,” which means the Congress-critters won’t be in D.C.
Congresswoman Kathy Castor (D-Fla)’s website shows nothing for the entire month of September.
Congressman John Yarmuth (D-Ken)’s website shows his last schedule to be Friday, Sept. 23. Nothing for this week.
Same with Senator Bill Nelson (D-Fla): the last activity on his schedule was for last Friday, Sept. 23.
Senator Jon Tester (D-Mont)’s website shows “no public events” for today, Sept. 25. 2011.
Senator Max Baucus (D-Mont)’s Daily Schedule website shows  his schedule for next Monday, October 7, but nothing for this week.
I couldn’t access the websites of John Doolittle, Kirsten Gillibrand, Denny Rehberg, Jan Schakowsky, while Congressman Alcee Hasting’s (D-Fla) website is woefully dated because it only shows his schedule for 2009!
So the mystery deepens….
No matter. If a big catastrophe is coming, it’s too late for us to find underground shelter anyway.
At least we won’t have to wait long to find out. LOL

I’d be quite happy if Skippy would just stay in that underground shelter for the rest of his term!

It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if they all passed right by Denver and went all the way to Siberia.
And stayed there. 🙂

skippy wouldn’t survive 10 seconds in siberia.. but that would be a proper place for him. maybe putin could arrange something a trade a couple of bears and a snowmobile for obama. or some vodka and a musk oxen for obama. i don’t believe the trade value of obama to be very high but heck he’s a fellow communist

This comet is going around since last March and now they are saying it is broken up. It is a good joke. LOve it and the one about OMuslim and his buddies in Denver. “Things to do in Denver when you’e dead”. LOL

Here’s my favorite conspiracy theory (from divinecosmos.com): “Recently, sources informed him that the earthquakes that occurred in Colorado and the Washington DC area, surrounding August 22nd and 23rd, were, in fact, apparently nuclear strikes against underground military facilities.”
So, that rumored huge underground military base beneath the Denver International Airport has been destroyed, so now where do they go?

The Cheese!

Holly Crap! I live just outside of Denver and my chair is shaking like a go go girl full of dollar bills! Yipes!
Maybe it was a truck!

Skippy and the law breakers are probably headed to Denver for a dress-rehearsal of when their day of reckoning arrives.

Thank you, Dr. Eowyn, for this interesting disclosure and for doing all of the research on the schedules you posted! If there is any truth to any destruction coming, I say, “Thanks for telling us about it!” Typical elitist crap! Reminds me of the movie, “2012.”

After I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any means you can take away me from that service? Thanks!
