And the dead shall be raised

"The trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised": "Tutankhamun's trumpet was one of the rare artefacts stolen from the Cairo Museum during the recent uprising. The 3,000-year-old instrument is rarely played, but a 1939 BBC radio recording captured its haunting sound" [Audio] http://bbc.in/hSY1oX

Anti-Americanism marches on:

Anti-Americanism marches on: "President Obama is unconcerned with typical American principles and traditions.  He sees capitalism as selfish and evil, religion as dangerous and oppressive; he sees the Constitution as antiquated and entrepreneurialism as exploitative.  He is the representative of the Fareed Zakaria ideology at work, celebrating the post-American world." http://bit.ly/evMVf6

St. Stephen's is an mportant location

St. Stephen's is an mportant location. My brother was baptized there. "The Presiding Bishop will make a pit stop in the faux Diocese of Pittsburgh on April 19. She will preach and preside at 10 a.m. in St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Wilkinsburg, as clergy renew their vows to local Bishop Kenneth Price, Jr. Later she will hold a short worship service and an open forum at Trinity Cathedral, Downtown." http://bit.ly/ewRuDH

Evil party explained:

Evil party explained: "The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrate mobs – it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and relentless in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as standard groupthink behavior. To understand mobs is to understand liberals." http://amzn.to/fmpL4d

The presiding bishop marches on. "So we go from the sacred to the secular, from Christ's sacrifice on earth to earth hugging, from the vertical to the horizontal...all in keeping with TEC's newfound religion of peace on earth through Millennium Development Goals rather than through Christ's sacrificial death on the cross for our sins." http://bit.ly/ewRuDH

Not allowed to call a black person unlikable

Nonsense. O obviously unlikable. Not allowed to call a black person unlikable. "People who didn't like his policies generally still saw Obama as a likeable guy, somebody they would enjoy having over for dinner with the family." http://bit.ly/gONAy2

"Let me have men about me that are fat; / Sleek-headed men and such as sleep o' nights: / Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; / He thinks too much: such men are dangerous. / [...] / Would he were fatter! But I fear him not: / Yet if my name were liable to fear, / I do not know the man I should avoid / So soon as that spare Cassius. He reads much; / He is a great observer and he looks / Quite through the deeds of men: he loves no plays, / As thou dost, Antony; he hears no music; / Seldom he smiles, and smiles in such a sort / As if he mock'd himself and scorn'd his spirit / That could be moved to smile at any thing. / Such men as he be never at heart's ease / Whiles they behold a greater than themselves, / And therefore are they very dangerous." http://bit.ly/e5JPqP

In Italy at the probable time of conception.

Blythe, the nominal father, was in Italy at the probable time of conception. "His father, William Blythe, died before Clinton was born." http://reut.rs/ectUUy
Similarly, there is no reason to have assurance that the nominal father of our current president is his natural father. Documentary evidence of exact place and date of birth and attending doctor are hidden. There are no witnesses to either the birth or to any relationship other than one of convenience between Stanley Anne Dunham and the purported father.
"Chris Ruddy is reporting in his magazine that Blythe was NOT in the country 9 months prior to Bill's birth and ONLY returned 6 MONTHS PRIOR to his birth. Virginia was asked about this and her response was Clintonesque: 'I pushed hard for an early labor'." http://bit.ly/eLnma6

"After pub of his book, Maraniss was contacted by a Louisiana family who claim one of their male relations had a love affair with a young Virginia Cassidy at the time Clinton was conceived. | The Louisiana family knew too many details about Virginia to have made up the story." ibid. http://bit.ly/eLnma6
But when Vanity Fair tracked down the midwife, she denied he was born prematurely. "Not at that weight. I remember he was a nice size baby, between eight and nine pounds". ibid. http://bit.ly/eLnma6
Tyrrell ("Boy Clinton") theorizes that "one of Virginia's family or friends at the county morgue found (Blythe who had died recently) and "married" (Virginia) to Blythe". ibid. http://bit.ly/eLnma6
I have heard it more than once, in casual conversation at these reunions, that the biological father of Bill Clinton is a doctor in town. "Everybody knows it" and "Bill Clinton looks just like him" are common statements made by my relatives. They speak of this in a way that it is just common knowledge around Hope. http://bit.ly/hdJs0P

Markets paid attention in 2007.
