When I heard the rumor regarding divorce of Sarah Palin and Todd I didn't give it a second thought.
I don't know Sarah. I wish i did. But, I know who she is.
So I wasn't distracted by all this.
Seems like those who don't know who she is might have been.

After observing Obama on the campaign trail and during his first six months in office, we have concluded that our President lives and governs according to his own set of “Ten Commandments.” They’re certainly NOT the Ten Commandments you learned in Sunday School. In fact, many are the direct opposite! To prove that our conclusions are correct, you will find a link to source documentation for each commandment on the Patriot Update web site.
I. Thou shalt have no God in America, except for me. For we are no longer a Christian nation and, after all, I am the chosen One. (And like God, I do not have a birth certificate.) SOURCE
II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, unless it is my face carved on Mt. Rushmore. SOURCE
III. Thou shalt not utter my middle name in vain (or in public). Only I can say Barack Hussein Obama. SOURCE
IV. Remember tax day, April 15th, to keep it holy. SOURCE
V. Honour thy father and thy mother until they are too old and sick to care for. They will cost our public-funded health-care system too much money. SOURCE
VI. Thou shalt not kill, unless you have an unwanted, unborn baby. For it would be an abomination to punish your daughter with a baby. SOURCE
VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery if you are conservative or a Republican. Liberals and Democrats are hereby forgiven for all of their infidelity and immorality, but the careers of conservatives will be forever destroyed. SOURCE
VIII. Thou shalt not steal, until you've been elected to public office. Only then is it acceptable to take money from hard-working, successful citizens and give it to those who do not work, illegal immigrants, or those who do not have the motivation to better their own lives. SOURCE
IX. Thou shalt not discriminate against thy neighbor unless they are conservative, Caucasian, or Christian. SOURCE
X. Thou shalt not covet because it is simply unnecessary. I will place such a heavy tax burden on those that have achieved the American Dream that, by the end of my term as President, nobody will have any wealth or material goods left for you to covet. SOURCE

This chart published by the Obama File attempts to clarify the differences between a citizen, a native-born citizen, and a natural-born citizen.
His site explained: "Obama is not a 'natural born citizen' because his father was a Kenyan national and a British subject. To be a natural born citizen, a person's parents must BOTH be citizens of the United States of America. Further, that person must be born in the United States."
Parker Shannon of the Obama File highlighted excerpts from the 1st U.S. Congress in his effort to demonstrate a natural born citizen must be the child of two U.S. citizens.
Why this persists is beyond me, UNLESS, there is some truth to it all. I don't keep beating this horse to death. Many others do.
The disdain with which BHO's surrounders dismiss this makes it even MORE suspect. Why?
Then you get a story like this. All of the Birth Certificates of all of the people who were born on in the same week in the same hospital are available on microfilm right now. BHO's is numbered differently in the certificate of live birth we have been presented. Like it was Made Up. Perhaps it was.
Why isn't the actual copy from microfilm available to the public? With the name of the attending Physician. I have a copy of who the attending Physician was when I was born and I'm MUCH older than BHO.
It's on microfilm.
So, let's see, if BHO's actual certificate is "Missing", if it's numbered Differently. Isn't there some legitimate reason to question this whole thing? I wonder.
The longer this drip drip drip's on, the more suspect it gets. Why doesn't BHO just come clean on this?
UNLESS - There's some persistent truth that will cause all the cards in his house to fall.

One thing is certain, an ugly underbelly has shown itself in this conversation. An ugly underbelly of conservatives. I am a conservative but I reject the self righteousness of the insured conservative that assumes everyone else is JUST LIKE THEM.
So, I am not happy that we are going to leave this whole mess as it is. There must be some way short of full on nationalization of our health care industry to correct the misdirection that exists.
We have rationing now. Insurance companies do it.
We have government health care now, Medicare and Medicaid, They are bankrupt.
We have the best most unaffordable health care on the planet. Thousand dollar gasoline makes a BMW useless. That's what we have right now. Useless except to those with money or big time insurance.
I have a solution. I wish I could offer it to someone who could make a difference. There appears to be some wise people who have solutions. Judd Gregg, Bob Bennett and Ron Wyden have teamed up to support a pretty effective solution.
I wish the politics would stop. I wish the Marxist solutions that Obama offered could be taken off the table. I wish Nancy Pelosi was an honest broker. I wish Harry Reid was a real leader. I wish most of the Republicans in the House and Senate didn't have their heads so firmly implanted in the sand. I wish the fair and honest voices who really want to solve problems, could.
This isn't a good thing. The big talkers on radio like Rush, Sean, Mark and others who keep saying that people are happy with things as they are (they aren't) and that there aren't really very many uninsured who want to be (a lie).
I wish they would start telling the truth. Like Sarah Palin said.
I hope she becomes a voice of sanity. We sure need it.

The primary aim of every church service - the prayer meeting, the Bible study, the young people’s meetings, the choir practice and the communion service - should be evangelistic. Why shouldn’t every service be for outsiders? Especially at communion, when the emblems of bread and wine are taken, make sure the church is full of the godless. That cup of red wine is the greatest preacher in the world. It is the Gospel in a cup; an opportunity to invite lost sinners to accept the sacrifice of the Cross. Some churches exclude outsiders. What a lost opportunity! The precious blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin. Is it only the clean who should come to the fountain?
If a church has tried and failed in its attempts at evangelism, it is time for a serious evaluation of its efforts. Evangelism demands the most intensive thinking. The finance committee’s job is soul saving, not money-saving. Any surplus funds should go into the true business of the church - saving the world.
This is Reinhard writing, and I am an evangelist. Am I overemphasizing? What would you say?
THIS IS GENE WRITING:
The position Reinhard has is more and more the pentecostal potion on communion. Over time I have watched the position morph into what looks like a Traditional Lutheran or Reformed position. Real Presence, not transubstantiation, but presence and the power to cleanse of sin. Reinhard defines it well. Isn't it interesting.
But, if you are on facebook and perhaps if you are not, you may be able to subscribe to Reinhard Bonnke's feed. It's wonderful and so rich. He's a modern day Smith Wigglesworth.
Go here and bookmark or do whatever it takes to get it. You will be fed.

Germany is phasing out nuclear power plants before the end of their useful lives, building more coal electric plants, and will make Germans pay thru the nose for expensive offshore wind electric power.
It was the revival of Kohl’s center-right Christian Democratic Union party under Chancellor Angela Merkel that delivered the concessions needed to kick-start the offshore-wind industry. In 2006 Merkel’s government—a coalition that also included the Social Democrats and the Christian Social Union—made power-grid operators responsible for running cables to offshore farms. That shaved about one-fifth off the average cost of a project. And last year Merkel improved the revenue side of the ledger, boosting the offshore tariff to 0.15/kWh (US $0.21/kWh).
The German government had to increase the payment to offshore wind operators in order to get enough investors to put up money to build offshore wind farms. Opposition to closer offshore facilities forced the wind farms into deeper water which drove up costs.
To put that 21 cents per kwh producers price in perspective at the time of this writing Americans on average are paying residential retail prices at 11.28 cents per kwh on average. The 21 cents per kwh that grid operators will pay will get marked up to higher residential retails prices to pay for distribution and billing costs.
But that cost number for wind electric is even worse than that. Wind is not dispatchable power. You can't order it up when you want it in response to demand spikes. You get it when the wind blows and you don't get it when the air is still. Electric power generators that can ramp up in response to demand spikes normally gets sold for a higher price than baseload power (like a nuclear power plant that runs all the time). But baseload power is at least there when the demand is greatest just like it is there when demand is least. By contrast, wind isn't as reliable as baseload power. So that 21 cents per kwh wholesale for an undependable power source is a really high price to pay.

If you love the Bilderburger-CFR-Illuminati conspiracy theories, you'll love this:
Peter F. Geithner, Treasury Secretary Geithner's father, worked for the Ford Foundation.
No surprise here though, really. Obama and family are highly connected to the East Coast banking crime syndicate (Rockefellers, Soros, Ford Foundation etc.). In other words, Obama and family are highly connected to (Council on Foreign Relations) CFR banking family members, or better known as the Federal Reserve conglomerate.
The fairy-tale story that Obama delivered during the Democratic National Convention (the one with the Greek columns and the fireworks) about his mother living on food stamps was most probably just another little white lie that he told to the American people. Why? Stanley Ann Dunham was professionally connected to Tim Geithner's father, Peter. Please read this excerpt from the Economic Policy Journal:
"Who is Timothy Geithner?
Morgan Reynolds, who served as chief economist for the US Department of Labor during 2001–2, George W. Bush's first term, has done a little fact checking on the new Treasury Secretary:
Who is Geithner? He is a creature of the eastern banking establishment and ruling class through and through. His résumé nicely matches his actions in handing out government money and guarantees to the "right people." Geithner’s father Peter is director of the Asia program at the Ford Foundation, a New World Order operation. Peter Geithner oversaw the "microfinance" programs developed in Indonesia by Ann Dunham-Soetoro, Barack Obama’s mother. Geithner’s maternal grandfather, Charles F. Moore, was an adviser to President Eisenhower and vice president of Ford Motor Company, according to Wikipedia. Geithner’s wife Carole Marie, like Geithner a 1983 graduate of Dartmouth College (Ivy League), is daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Sonnenfeld of Princeton, N.J., a professor of French and comparative literature at Princeton University (Ivy League) for 27 years."
Thus, Obama and Tim Geithner most probably were childhood friends. Remember Tony Rezko? Obama used Rezko to launder about $100 million of taxpayer dollars while Obama was still a State Senator. Geithner is Obama's right hand in accessing the Tony Rezkos (people like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates) of the national level for Obama and the Democrats while he's President. That's why that with all this trouble about AIG, Obama is still not going to get rid of Geithner. Geithner is a valuable tool for them to rob this country through its national policies.
Peter Geithner (Tim's Father) was director of the Asia program at the Ford Foundation, a New World Order (NWO) operation. Peter Geithner oversaw the "microfinance" programs developed in Indonesia by Ann Dunham-Soetoro, Barack Obama’s mother.
Note: As many of you may already know, the Clintons also have strong ties to the Indonesia Microfinance program. They have been to Indonesia several times to "take care of their business". It is the hub of the New World Order micro-finance scheme. The same scheme that was adopted by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to trigger the collapse of the housing market. It was first instantiated by Carter (a NWO puppet), and then made increasingly effective by Clinton (another NWO puppet) by removing almost all restrictions. The Ford Foundation are partners with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Did you know that when Son of Stanley was going to school in Los Angeles, he went with a Pakistani friend to visit his mother in Indonesia, who was working for Peter Geithner at that time. After this, he spent a couple weeks in Pakistan, before he abruptly transferred to Columbia in New York where Peter Geithner was headquartered
A little more about Peter Geithner and his ties to known NWO operations:
Peter F. Geithner is an advisor to the Asia Center at Harvard University and a consultant to the Asia Pacific Philanthropy Consortium, Rockefeller Foundation, Sasakawa Peace Foundation, and other organizations. He serves on the boards of the National Committee on United States-China Relations, the China Center for Economic Research (Peking University), the Center for the Advanced Study of India (University of Pennsylvania), Clemente (Holdings) Asia, Inc., and the Institute of Current World Affairs.
Peter Geithner's obviously rather unconventional style, gives him a lot in common with Stanley Ann, considered to be a pioneer in the field of anthropological microfinance for underprivileged Asian women. Though from far different backgrounds, both parents afforded their sons with globe-trotting, exotic childhoods, culminating in Peter’s Son playing Robin to Stanley Ann’s OBatMan. Small world, huh?
According to The Atlantic, young Timmy Giethner's experiences at Dear Old Dad’s knee in Asia, even in China during the Tiananmen Square uprising, greatly influenced his life choices:
"First, his Asia background. Geithner’s father, Peter Geithner, was a development specialist who opened the Ford Foundation’s China office - the first foreign NGO here, under a special agreement that continues to this day. That was just before Tiananmen Square, and the father was part of the Foundation’s difficult but, ultimately, undoubtedly correct decision to remain engaged. Tim apparently also studied Chinese, was posted in Tokyo for Treasury, and focused on Asia studies as undergraduate and graduate student. This is all great background for Treasury’s international dealings in the coming years."
Now you can see why China is lending us all this money for Socialist/Marxist agendas? China knows that if the US is to become Socialist/Marxist, our country will no longer lead the world in innovation and technology. China has their own plans for world "hemogany". In fact, Chinese leaders know that Communism doesn't work, and this is why they have adopted a simulation model of Western government through their "Strategic Moderization Objective".
There is also a solid link between the Islamic Banking Cooperative, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, The Ford Foundation, Devron Bank of Chicago and the Bank of Indonesia (Stanley A. Dunham was a research coordinator at this bank and a program officer for the Ford Foundation).
Devron began selling Islamic home refinancing products for Muslims to Freddie Mac (see below).CHICAGOLAND, ILLINOIS – Devon Bank today announced it would begin selling its Islamic home financing products to Freddie Mac, effectively expanding opportunities for Muslims living in Illinois and nine other states to become homeowners while observing traditional Islamic restrictions on paying interest on mortgages and other types of debt. Based in McLean,
Juan A. de Hoyos, a naturalized U.S. citizen living in Texas, wanted to cross the Rio Grande to see some family members.
On June 1, it became mandatory to have a passport to travel to Mexico. When he submitted his application, he included the only document he had that resembled the required birth certificate – a Texas birth card or birth abstract, a document he describes as looking "almost identical to the one President Obama posted on that website."
But while that certification of live birth was enough to qualify Obama for the White House, de Hoyos can't believe the only birth document he has won't qualify him to get a U.S. passport.
This doesn't sit well with de Hoyos – and many other Americans in similar situations being forced to produce exactly the right paperwork for routine matters while they see the president getting a pass on a constitutional requirement to be eligible for the highest office in the land.
"I merely want to be able to cross a bridge to go see my family, and I am being told that my 'abstract of birth' is not sufficient," said de Hoyos. "Barack Obama has asked the American people to accept this same type of document to become the leader of the free world!"
Obama's birth certificate is not the only document at issue. Among the documentation not yet available for Obama includes his kindergarten records, his Punahou school records, his Occidental College records, his Columbia University records, his Columbia thesis, his Harvard Law School records, his Harvard Law Review articles, his scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, his passport, his medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.
Some Americans were shocked to learn last week that the certification of live birth Obama has claimed is his "birth certificate" is not acceptable to obtain a passport because it does not contain sufficient detail about the birth, such as time and location.
That revelation has brought little comfort to de Hoyos, who has 90 days to turn in the required documentation or have his application for a passport denied.
While he will do his best to try to locate a long-form birth certificate in his country of origin, he wonders why the American people don't require Obama to produce one to remain in office.
"No man, no matter how popular he may be, should be allowed to blatantly disregard the provisions of the Constitution," says de Hoyos. "If we lose the Constitution, we lose America."
WND has reported on dozens of legal challenges to Obama's status as a "natural born citizen." The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."
Some of the lawsuits question whether he was actually born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama's American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time.
Other challenges have focused on Obama's citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.
Complicating the situation is Obama's decision to spend sums estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to avoid releasing a state birth certificate that would put to rest all of the questions.
A key to the defenses presented by Obama supporters always has been the "Certification of Live Birth:"
Short-form "Certification of Live Birth"
The document contrasts with an actual Hawaii birth certificate from 1963 (the same era as Obama's birth), which while redacted includes detailed information documenting a birth, including the name of the birth hospital and the attending physician.

To date, Obama has not revealed his original long-form, hospital-generated "Certificate of Live Birth" that includes details such as the name of the medical facility and the doctor who delivered him.
(The following is not substantiated. It is simply the as yet unverified report of Freddy, a fly on the wall in the Oval Office who has not yet been swatted and smushed by Obama. Freddy, fortunately, kept detailed notes on the president’s phone call to Sgt. James Crowley of the Cambridge, MA police force. BHO=Obama, SGT=Crowley.)
BHO: Hey, Jimmy-boy. How ya doin’?
SGT: Who is this?
BHO: It’s your president, stu . . . umm, Sergeant!
SGT: The PBA president? You don’t sound like him.
BHO: No, no, no, it’s Barack Obama!
SGT: Oh. Who put you through to me and how did you get my number, anyway? It’s unlisted.
BHO: (Laughs) We have our ways, Jim. We have our ways. (Laughs again)
SGT: Whatever. What’s on your mind, Mr. President, why are you calling me?
BHO: Well, to explain things, Jimbo. I didn’t want you to get the wrong impression from what I said the other night . . . I didn’t want you to think I was calling you stupid. . . .
SGT: First, sir, please don’t call me Jimbo. Even my mom doesn’t call me Jimbo. But who then were you calling stupid? The whole Cambridge police force? And in front of a national audience on tv?
BHO: No problemo, Jim, don’t be so hot-headed . . .
SGT: Please call me sergeant, Mr. President. I worked hard to get this rank.
BHO: Umm, yeah, right, Senator Boxer said something like that to a general a while back.
SGT: I wouldn’t know. I don’t follow politics much.
BHO: Okay, I hear ya sergeant. I guess ya didn’t vote for me either? (Laughs)
SGT: Why would you say that, sir?
BHO: Well, as I said, we have our ways . . . of finding out stuff. Gibbsie told me most cops didn’t, that is, except for black cops. And you’re not black, right?
SGT: No sir.
BHO: Well, I guess you didn’t vote for me.
SGT: No comment. But, Mr. President, I’m sure you’re a busy man and I have a tee time in an hour. I hate to rush you . . .
BHO: Gotcha, sergeant, I won’t keep you long but I’m not really very busy.
SGT: Thank you, sir.
SGT: Why did you call me? I think I heard you loud and clear on national television.
BHO: Well, we can’t always believe what we hear, sarge . . .
SGT: Please call me sergeant.
BHO: Yeah, right . . . Well, I called to set things straight. You do know the Black Congressional Caucus is supporting me and what I said at the health care news conference?
SGT: Yes, and so is Al Sharpton. So?
BHO: Well, I was just trying to show you that things aren’t always so black and white, ya know? I wanna be the president of all the people and I don’t want any hard feelings over all this. You know what I’m saying?
SGT: I do, sir. I’m not that stupid. May I speak frankly?
BHO: Sure, sergeant! I always want transparency and frank talk gets that done.
SGT: Thank you. Well, I just don’t understand you. Leon, that’s Sgt. Leon Lashley, a black guy, by the way, was on the scene when this thing with Professor Gates occurred and he fully corroborates my account of what happened. I just don’t get why you jumped the gun and ripped me and my department when you admitted you didn’t know all the facts and furthermore what you said seemed to have racial overtones since I’m white and the professor is black. It made it seem that it was racial for me to enforce the law . . .
BHO: Whoa! Now you sound like one angry man, sergeant!
SGT: No, I’m not angry. I’m pissed that the president of the United States would go off half-cocked on a local matter you knew nothing about! After all, is that presidential?
BHO: Now, you excuse me, sergeant, please don’t question my presidentiality. Professor Gates is a friend of mine . . .
SGT: Is that even a word, sir?
BHO: Oh, I dunno. But it is now! (Laughs then another pause)
SGT: Sergeant Lashly is a friend of mine and he backs me up. He was there. You weren’t!
BHO: Now, Sergeant Crowley, you’re being impertinent toward your president! My point was that I know Professor Gates and have known him for a long time and you don’t know him.
SGT: And you, sir, don’t know Sgt. Lashley, or me for that matter. Besides, I do know Gates. I was very up close and personal when he acted as if I was the suspect in a criminal investigation and carried on like he flipped his lid simply because I was doing my job. He ranted, yelled, refused to cooperate and ID himself. Maybe he just acts differently in front of you, you know, in front of his own.
BHO: “In front of his own?”
SGT: Nevermind. I guess we’d better not go there. All I’m saying is that I was acting on a report that two black men were breaking into a residence owned by Harvard and Sgt. Lashley and other cops later witnessed Gates in action, in his abusive tirade. I had no choice but to arrest him for disorderly conduct. He was acting grossly disorderly.
BHO: Well, I have to admit I wasn’t expecting this reaction when I called. I expected some deference, some agreement, some sense of reason so we could reach what I like to call common ground and all I met was resistance. In any event, I’m still offering my hand in friendship. I hope you will join me and Professor Gates in quaffing a beer in the White House.
SGT: Thanks but no thanks, Mr. President. Quaff that brew with the professor and the Reverend Sharpton. You may want to discuss why race relations have gone down the toilet since you adopted your “presidentiality.” I’d rather share a beer with real people, like Sgt. Lashley.
BHO: You’re refusing my invite?
SGT: Stuff your invite until I get an apology, Mr. President!
BHO: (Click, then Obama’s muffled voice saying, “Make sure the IRS audits that prick’s ass into bankruptcy!”)
