Obama’s man in Honduras claims Israelis torturing him with radiation

posted at 10:55 am on September 24, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

The man that Barack Obama insists the Hondurans should restore to power now claims that Israelis are torturing him with mind rays and toxic gases while holding out in the Brazilian embassy in Tegulcigalpa.  Manuel Zelaya, removed from office by order of the Honduran parliament and Supreme Court but still recognized as president by the Obama administration, says the current interim government has hired Israeli mercenaries, who beam radiation at his head from outside the embassy:

It’s been 89 days since Manuel Zelaya was booted from power. He’s sleeping on chairs, and he claims his throat is sore from toxic gases and “Israeli mercenaries” are torturing him with high-frequency radiation.

“We are being threatened with death,” he said in an interview with The Miami Herald, adding that mercenaries were likely to storm the embassy where he has been holed up since Monday and assassinate him. …

Zelaya was deposed at gunpoint on June 28 and slipped back into his country on Monday, just two days before he was scheduled to speak before the United Nations. He sought refuge at the Brazilian Embassy, where Zelaya said he is being subjected to toxic gases and radiation that alter his physical and mental state.

So this is the calm, rational leadership that Barack Obama envisions for Honduras!  Obama much prefers a president given to tinfoil-hat conspiracy theories and knee-jerk anti-Semitism.  At least this makes sense of the Van Jones appointment.

I’ve contacted the White House for comment.  If and when I get a response, I will add it as an update to this post.  In the meantime, regarding Obama’s curious attachment to Zelaya, I can only offer this refrain from one of my favorite poems, “Pig’s Song”:

It was early last September
As near as I can remember
While strolling down a lane in tipsy pride
Not a word did I utter
As I lay down in the gutter
When this pig came up and lay there by my side

Not a soul was I disturbing
As I lay there by the curbing
When this high toned lady come
And I heard her say,
“You can tell a man who boozes
By the company he chooses” …

So the pig got up and slowly walked away.

I’m not up on mythical powers and weaponry, but I have a feeling that Jew Beams trump Shooting Rainbows and Unicorns Out Your Ass.

Time for Obama to call a Cabinet–oops, sorry, Czar–meeting to see how this possibly could have been allowed to happen.

The President of the Honduran Central Bank, Sandra Midence, is lamenting the fact that $163.3 million dollars that had been promised to Honduras by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have been “redirected” to ex functionaries of the prior government. (Zelaya cronies)
Despicable

Perhaps a preview of the future? Any country that insist on keeping their democrate republic or sovereignty will have their IMF funds denied to them and the funds given to those that are willing to overthrow that government and establish one that will work with the new world government and its socilist polices. Obviously Obama supports this world government policy and intends to have his America to be a leader to bring it into reality

Franklyn on September 24, 2009 at 4:59 PM

So Obama, Hillary tell us again why this was a coup and not democracy at work?

Of course when you look at how you two think government is supposed to be I guess you DO think this madman would be dictator should be in power.

I hope we catch Hillary sneaking him into the country so we can prosecute the whole damn administration. We all know she and Obama did.

I was under the impression that the IMF was supposed to help build and sustain the institutions of countries, not line the pockets of the people it would prefer to see in power.

ProfessorMiao on September 24, 2009 at 5:51 PM

Ya’… just like Ronald Reagan introduced crack in America to wipe out minorities. If by chance it is true… Good job Israel, and I hope Zelaya continues hanging out with Hugo Chavez, and… others.

ronnyraygun on September 24, 2009 at 5:57 PM

OK this is funny.

Except the part where Obama loves him and wants to return him to his rightful place, of trying to subvert his country’s constitution.

Alana on September 24, 2009 at 5:59 PM

Wow. Far out. Psychedelic trippin’, man. Those Israeli mercs sure have a wierd sense of humor.

starboardhelm on September 24, 2009 at 6:25 PM

So they train snakes and pigs to attack the palestinians. Make special gum to corrupt their youth. And now they have a special brain wave machine that makes people go crazy.

Now that is thinking outside the box lox.

Didn’t the LIAR-in-chief sign a bill to provide $108 billion in credit lines to back the International Monetary Fund courtesy of my 1040?

GOOD!

So Zelaya is not only a Marxist but a nutball as well. Fine example of “Smart Diplomacy”.

Any chance at all that the media will ask the White House why we are supporting an anti-Semite tin foil hatter in Honduras?

DaMav on September 24, 2009 at 7:53 PM

Then why didn’t they do the good people of the world a favor and finish the job?

According to a news report, the IMF consulted its members on what to do. Not hard to guess what the US’ position was.

In the sane world we call it sunshine. Yet another devious plot by the joooooooooos.

ProfessorMiao on September 24, 2009 at 5:51 PM

Six of one, half dozen of the other. Since when in the last twenty years has the UN done anything but line it’s pockets? It does help the poor, but 2/3’s of the money(being generous)helps those in power at the UN. Is this where our government learned how to do things? If so they learned well, our current government is well on the way of Latin America.

MMMMMM, MMMM, MM, Barack Hussein Obama!

M-14 2go on September 24, 2009 at 8:04 PM

Manuel Zelaya, removed from office by order of the Honduran parliament and Supreme Court but still recognized as president by the Obama administration

This does not suprise me sense Hussein ignores the Constitution of the United States. Remember to vote in 2010 and 2012

BigMike252 on September 24, 2009 at 8:14 PM

I hope one or two of the major mainstream newspapers, like the New York Post or the Washington Times, picks up on this. It makes Obama and Hillary look like even bigger idiots than they already are.

ProfessorMiao on September 24, 2009 at 8:25 PM

his throat is sore from toxic gases

Time to change that bong water, dude.

Israeli government sources in Miami said they could not confirm the presence of any “Israelis mercenaries” in Honduras.

Love the non-denial denial

“It’s Boosh and the CIA!!!”

Hey! It’s a claim that has been rallying the idiots for the past decade, why stop now? When that claim fails, blame the Jews! That’s always sure to rally a few retards.

“Restore Democracy to Illinois!”

Heh.

Thanks for that link. It’s great when someone is thrust into the job of journalist by forces of natural or man-caused disasters.

Shows ya how easy journalism really is.

In the future, everyone will be a journalist for fifteen minutes.

In the future, journalism textbooks will be blogware instruction booklets.

Obama would like to set up a regional OAS “Peacekeeping” force, similar to what the AU (formerly OAU) has in Africa.

This is a great opportunity. Troops from the US, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil — all working together to enforce an OAS mandated “cease-fire.”

Lovely.
