Last week’s headline grabber was President Barack Hussein Obama’s winning of the Nobel Prize for Peace. Besides the controversy it generated, many people are flocking to the Nobel site to see who else has been conferred the award.

Since 1901, the Nobel Award has been given to people for achievements in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature. In 1968 another category was added for achievements in economics. The Nobel Prize is an international award administered by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden. Each prize consists of a medal, personal diploma and a cash award. Alfred Nobel invented dynamite in 1866.

“Birther Week”

On “The Andrea Shea King Show” last week, we dedicated all five programs to interviewing the five top attorneys challenging Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to hold office.

Joining us on Monday was Philip J. Berg; Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation on Tuesday; Andy Martin on Wednesday; Mario Apuzzo and lead plaintiff Charles Kerchner on Thursday; and Orly Taitz on Friday.

More eligibility questions?

An exhaustive list of WorldNetDaily’s extensive reports about Obama’s eligibility issue can be found on WND’s eligibility archive page.

Researcher Dr. Paula Gordon has also created Eligibility Questions, a website that catalogs media coverage, legal action and researched information about questions surrounding Barack Obama’s birth certificate, passport, Selective Service records, college records and more.

What will Israel do?

WorldNetDaily regular contributor Dr. Jerome Corsi has been making the rounds on radio talk shows, discussing his two newest books: “Why Israel Can’t Wait: The Coming War Between Israel and Iran” and “America For Sale.”

Both books are available at the WND Bookstore, and you’ll get three complimentary issues of WND’s acclaimed monthly print magazine, Whistleblower, when you purchase both books. Be sure to watch for the free offer during checkout.

Fusion of entertainment and enlightenment

Listening to the Glenn Beck radio program last week, I heard a caller tell Glenn how he’s figured out a way for us to learn what’s in the supposed “health-care reform” bill, or any other bill for that matter. Break It Apart’s creator has posted the bills.

Visitors read the bill’s numbered page that corresponds with the last three digits of their Social Security Number and summarize their findings. Break It Apart is hotlinked with As A Mom – A Sisterhood of Mommy Patriots, a site I wrote about in last week’s Surfin Safari column.

WorldNetDaily Talk Radio Watch’s Kathy Shaidle has more about Break It Apart in her column this week.

Going up?

Head south of Abilene, nearly smack-dab in the middle of Texas, cross a couple of intersections, look for a small lump in the road with mailboxes sprouting out of the ground, and you’re there. Where? Why, a missile silo home, of course!

Going down?

Check out the four newest properties for sale on the housing market! The latest addition – an underground, decommissioned Atlas E missile base in Valley Falls, Kan. Also for future “subterran” dwellers: three communications sites: Ocilla, Ga., Paris, Mo., and Pulaski, Ind.

Where are we?

On a recent trip, we used a GPS locator. It was absolutely foolproof and guided us home from any point in our travel. How do GPS locaters work? Well, look to the stars like Garmin, Magellan or Tom Tom.

Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars!

If the level of your participation in my weekly movie trivia feature is any indication, many of you love movies.

Well, I’ve found a fun site for you, written by a fellow movie aficionado who writes, “I absolutely love them! I love to watch them, talk about them, analyze them, and – hopefully, one day – write them.”

What you’ll find: all 81 Academy Award winning movies, back to back, starting with the first: “Wings” in 1929 through “Slumdog Millionaire” in 2009.

“Up” with “The Lion King”

One of my favorite movies is “The Lion King.” Lots of life lessons there. Another favorite is “Up!” one of the funniest and most heartwarming movies of this year. Watch both for free at Online Watch Movies.

Movie trivia!

WorldNetDaily Surfin’ Safari readers R. Dobbyn of Stennis Space Center, Miss.; James Owings of Denver, Colo.; and Chet Grafton of Louisville, Ky., were the first three readers to correctly answer last week’s movie trivia question. All identified the character Sergeant Muldoon played by Aldo Ray in the 1968 film “The Green Berets,” directed by and starring John Wayne.

The movie also featured George Takei, David Janssen, Jim Hutton and Aldo Ray, and was loosely based on the 1965 book by Robin Moore. “The Green Berets,” an anti-communist and pro-Saigon film was produced in 1968, the same year as the Tet offensive against the largest cities in southern Vietnam, when the USA’s involvement in the Vietnam War was at its height. John Wayne wanted to counter the anti-war atmosphere and social discontent in the U.S. at the time.

This week’s movie trivia: “Of course, he was a Harvard graduate. That might be grounds for justifiable homicide.”

Name the character who spoke the lines, the actor and the movie. Send your answer to me at the email address below. The first three readers to guess correctly will be announced in next week’s Surfin’ Safari.
