Barack Obama is the President of the United States thanks in part to Gene Roddenberry - who was a socialist-communist. How is this possible? Gene Roddenberry invented Star Trek. One of the shows of Star Trek was called Star Trek: Voyager One of the actresses on Star Trek: Voyager was Jeri Ryan. She played the part of Seven of Nine. Her husband, Jack Ryan ran for the US Senate Seat during 2004 against, you guessed it, Barack Obama for Peter Fitzgerald's seat. Fitzgerald was retiring and would no longer serve after 2004. When Jeri got the role of Seven of Nine, she spent a lot of hours acting and away from the family. Jack then did some really horribly stupid things with their only son. Alex like taking his 9 year old son to strip clubs. Jack and Jeri got a divorce in 1999. When the truth about the divorce was released to the public in 2004, it de-railed Jack's campaign and Obama was leading by 20 points. Jack stepped down and Alan Keyes stepped in. Alan Keyes was a radical right wing conservative and thus had no chance of winning. So Obama won the Senate. All Gene Roddenberry's fault. If there wasn't Star Trek, Jeri Ryan wouldn't have been away from Jack Ryan, they would've still been married, Obama might've been defeated at the polls and Hillary would be our president right now.
