Life, Began In US:
Barack Obama's Mercer Island mother gave birth in the United States, a federal judge has ruled. The result was dismissal of a lawsuit brought by a Hillary Clinton supporter prior to the Democratic National Convention alleging that Obama was a citizen of Indonesia, not Hawaii, thus making him ineligible to serve as President of the United States. The judge determined that the allegations in the complaint were too vague. He said nothing about John McCain being born in Panama.
Death, Thwarted In Tenn.:
Federal agents have broken up a plot by two neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 102 black people, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives said Monday. In court records unsealed in U.S. District Court in Jackson, Tenn., the AP reports, federal agents revealed the disruption of a plot to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school in a murder spree that was to begin in Tennessee, a Red state favoring John McCain.
