I am proud to say that Stephen Colbert was Knighted by the Queen of Jordan on his show tonight in a deal where Mr. Colbert signed a Nuclear Treaty against the proliferation of Nuclear Arms in the Middle East to become a Knight of Jordan.

Queen Noor of Jordan - on nuclear weapons and Islam


In recent months, a growing chorus of world leaders of nuclear nations including U.S. President-elect Barack Obama and Russian Prime Minster Vladimir Putin have called for the elimination of all nuclear weapons. The United States and Russia are among 189 countries that have signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Not surprisingly, the idea has overwhelming public support. A recent Global Zero poll of 21 nuclear and non-nuclear countries found that an average 76 percent of respondents favor an international agreement that would achieve zero nuclear weapons according to a set timetable that would include compliance monitoring.

It is pretty awesome that the guy can get away with such things.
I enjoyed the fact that Stephen Colbert the man signed the treaty, where as his character he plays was against it.

Colbert is a cultural icon, past anything Jon Stewart could do. It's because he represents both sides of our culture- liberal and conservative- in such a way that he identifies with many, many young people.

Long live King Colbert!

I know that when a US citizen gets knighted in another country, it Makes him no longer a citizen of the US.

I need some proof of that. Lots and lots of proof. Like, one link won't suffice. I need at least 4.

forum trolls at their best.

Funny how "you know" this to be true, but...all of my google searching cannot produce an inkling of evidence.

wow, i love it when people do this:

you linked to an article that proves that you don't know what your talking about:


The naysayers point to Article I Section 9 of the Constitution, which says “No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.”


from your article


tell me, what "office" does stephen colbert hold?

Actually, to be fair what she nighted him as was Leader of the Colbert nation and leader against nuclear proliferation, if I remember correctly. I saw that last nite as well and thought it was cool. I rather like Stephen Colbert, he's intellegent and funny.

Peace,

How apropos. Colbert is a genius. He just rides that crest of ridiculousness, and keeps on truckin'.

He's a master of satire, for sure. Spinning him off from the Daily Show was inspired.

We want to stop the nuke popularity cause we have
something more devastating.

So bad it can destroy anything anywhere without missiles or
neutron bombs or nukes.

Then that will proliferate.
Its smart to put a stop to weapons.

So what's the deal with Jordan having a Knighthood.
Anyone seeing how the Crusades finally won and why
the Royal British throne sits on Jacob's rock.

No I don't either.

Let me guess. You think England invited "knighthood" and has a copyright on it. Intriguing idea. How much do you think the rest of the world owe Elizabeth in royalties?

BTW, are you talking about the new secret weapon, Hush-a-boom, the silent explosive?

We might all know how knighthood was started and even find
internet links for the proof from an undeniable source.

Sure I might know where and how but England sure continues it
and lauds it over its subjects.

Jordan being one as it sounds from Colbert's adventure.

A silent go boom, not if an air pressure is changed.
The silent weapon used ether pressure.
Ether being very fine compared to air.
Ether perhaps about a billionth as fine as air.
The construction of a ray in 1934 was revealed in 1940 as stated on the
internet, one of the death ray links.
Thus perhaps destroyed at that time but perfected through the years is
what I would be referring to. I have no I idea what the silent bomb is
but the silent ray that kills faster than the cattle ray seems a good
technological forecast.

The mention on the net was not of Tesla, but among Tesla stories,
but quite around 1934 Tesla, von Braun and Goddard might have been
working on it but Washington stopped it. Other inventors had worked
on silent weapons before so why not a sophisticated system now that
might pick off one at time or en mass.

A death ray revealed in 1940, but Tesla never revealed his contracts
or who he was working for. Tesla perhaps was still a consulting engineer
until the day he died. He just liked keeping engineering secrets and
it cost him and eventually us as things seemed to have worked out.
The passage on the net:

Inventor's Offer
Then there is Dr. Antonio Longoria, who says that he destroyed a death ray machine which he invented in 1933, because it was too dangerous. |Of this machine, Albert Burns, president of the Inventors' Congress in 1934, said that he had seen it kill pigeons, rabbits, dogs and cats at considerable distances.
