Hurricane Sandy Halts Campaigns, Some Early Voting

People stand in line to vote early on Sunday in Pembroke Pines, Fla. (AP/J Pat Carter)

Both President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney have suspended campaigning – a week ahead of election day – due to Hurricane Sandy.

Early voting in Maryland and Washington, D.C., has been canceled due to the storm, and Hurricane Sandy’s reach could extend into three other key states – New Hampshire, North Carolina and Ohio.

In Virginia, election officials eased absentee voting requirements for residents affected by the storm.

    Weather modification at work.
    Look up Dr. Bern Livingston, the father of weaponized weather.
    Or even H.A.A.R.P., the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program
    Interesting to note, that in Oct 1997, a simulation of a storm of Sandy’s magnitude was performed by the Feds. based on the Hurricane of 1938.
    Also look up the United Nations 1976 Treaty on Weather Weapons. http://www.scribd.com/doc/3436…I read this back in the late 1980′s. Yes folks, this information is out there, but don’t expect the mainstream media to fill you in on it.
    You think this is all a joke, do some research on it.
    While you are at it, do a search for Bernard Eastland, TARFOX and chemtrails.
    I’m surprised that others here on this comment section haven’t mentioned this as about 2 years ago on NPR’s Diane Rehms Show, they covered the topic of “geo-engineering”.I suppose its the short memories of Americans that contribute to little talk and discussion about many subjects at hand.
