Governor of Montana Attacks Romney's Family History

Gateway Pundit :On Thursday Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer decided to go after Romney’s family history regarding polygamy stating Hispanics would not approve of such a history. So it is only fair to point out that President Obama’s family has a history of polygamy and bigamy as well. Yet the majority of Hispanics voted for President Obama in 2008.The Washington Post reported:
 “The line of polygamists in Obama’s family can be traced back generations in western Kenya, where it was an accepted practice within the Luo (pronounced LOO-oh) tribe.” His great-grandfather, Obama Opiyo, had five wives, including two who were sisters. His grandfather, Hussein Onyango, had at least four wives, one of whom, Akumu, gave birth to the president’s father, Barack Obama” before fleeing her abusive husband. Obama Sr. was already married when he left Kenya to study at the University of Hawaii, where he married again. His American wife-to-be, Stanley Ann Dunham, was not yet 18 and unaware of his marital situation when she became pregnant with his namesake son in 1961.
 It is also well known that Democrat Senator from New Mexico, Tom Udall, and his cousin, Senator Mark Udall (D) from Colorado, come from a long line of polygamists. But that was never an issue because they are Democrats. Mens Journal reported:
In the Udall family, politics stretches back generations. Mark’s and Tom’s great-grandfather, David King Udall, was a pioneer Arizonan and a Mormon polygamist who was sent to federal prison (on testimony of an ancestor of Mitt Romney’s, family lore has it). He was pardoned by President Grover Cleveland, then tossed back in jail. This time, it was Barry Goldwater’s grandfather who got him off the hook. 
 It’s only ever an issue if the politician is Republican.

10 Years Ago Dems Blocked Drilling In ANWR Because It Would Take 10 Years to Produce OIl

From Gateway Pundit -Ten years ago, Senate Democrats blocked energy production in a small portion of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). At the time, they claimed that ANWR should be off limits because the oil would take 10 years to reach the market. Ten years later, ANWR remains closed, gas prices have skyrocketed, and Democrats continue to block additional energy production.



District sees dollars in water, gravity

As Bill Engvall says, "Here's your sign..."
NewsNM (Swickard) Are you kidding me? They announce this to the public without first talking to PNM? From - ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A new device that may soon turn up in the Albuquerque area can create power out of an everyday occurrence. The Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District monitors 1,200 miles of ditches, arroyos and canals in central New Mexico. Hundreds of spillways – where water drops from one level to another – are part of that network. District officials are now considering buying devices that can capture the energy created by water running down those spillways. The process is called small-scale hydroelectric power. The device works when water travels through turbines that power a generator and create electricity. That energy could then be sold back to the local power company. The conservancy district has not talked to PNM yet, but plans to do so. District Hydrologist David Gensler said the device would pay for itself in 10 to 15 years and could last about 50 years.
