Monday afternoon, in a transparent attempt to divert attention from the über-Nixonian scandals plaguing him, President Obama staged an EF5 tornado in Oklahoma.

This wasn't the first time that Obama has conducted a #FalseFlag operation, nor was it the first time he's used the weather as a weapon; it was, however, the first time that he has directly targeted America's heartland.

With many questions about the president's actions requiring answers, no doubt there will be Congressional investigations (and maybe even a special prosecutor); but one thing already seems clear—all roads lead to Benghazi.

On Comedy Central...

Jon Stewart diagnosed Peggy Noonan's mental problems.

And Stephen Colbert went grasping for scandals.

Note: The Daily Show and The Colbert Report will be airing reruns this week.

Elsewhere...

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) urged women to carry brain dead fetuses to term.

"Ms. Zink, having my great sympathy and empathy both. I still come back wondering, shouldn't we wait, like that couple did, and see if the child can survive before we decide to rip him apart? So. These are ethical issues, they're moral issues, they're difficult issues, and the parents should certainly be consulted. But it just seems like, it's a more educated decision if the child is in front of you to make those decisions."

Meanwhile, in other brainless news...

Sarah Palin shared Americans' fear of the IRS.

"This IRS scandal is especially terrible because Americans live in fear of the IRS like no other entity because this monstrous bureaucracy has the power to take your hard-earned money. Your wages are the sum of your labors; hence, the IRS has the power to steal the fruits of your labors. Average Americans live in fear of making an error on their tax returns that could cost them massive amounts of money, plus their reputation and good name. If a small business makes a mistake, the IRS can shut them down and send them to jail."

And, finally...

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) cast the blame for President Obama's election on Ronald Reagan.

In an effort to dissuade Republicans, King argued that the 1986 immigration bill that Reagan signed into law is estimated to have brought amnesty to three million illegal immigrants.

He said conservative estimates show that, on average, each of these people brought in five others, leading to 15 million more people in the country, most of whom voted for Obama.

There's no place like home.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
