Sarah Palin @SarahPalinUSA:
Politicians wonder why we can't trust them? Campaign flip-flops like this and carve-out bribes in the Amnesty... http://fb.me/2IsL1uspC
Palins tweet links to a story from TownHall.com detailing Sen. Marco Rubios (D-Fla.) flip-flop over amnesty for illegal immigrants.
During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an earned path to citizenship, which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty.
Rubio, who won that 2010 election, is now the leading Republican in the U.S. Congress pushing for illegal aliens to be given the earned path to citizenship that he himself insisted was code for amnesty only three years ago

I agree and she certainly gives the ONLY voice for conservatives but she's trying to wake up the sleepy who go about clueless and who settle for 'anyone but'. And many of them even consider themselves conservative but we know better for 'fear is the opposite of patriotic'.
Do not drink the Kool-Aid ..
It is offered up every day. Be discerning.
God bless America.
I disagree wholeheartedly. Sarah has been dumped on continually by those trying to kill her influence (just like you). Calling someone a fool is ugly and based on nothing, but a person’s opinion.
Obviously you are a liberal. It takes one to make such hateful statements. Are you jealous?
McCain must be really pissed now that Rubio has displaced him as the Democrats’ favorite Republican.
I wish. :)
Yeah, that's what the trools (that's a troll that drools) are trying for. They want to "get us going" but this one got raked over the coals pretty good with lots of direct comments which brought out his agenda quite well.
The worse kind of whores.
Absolutely NO happy endings.
Until they are removed, their choice how.
Voter fraud determines elections these days, too bad we don't use the purple finger thingie.
But of course, most of the fraud is behind the scenes by stuffing the boxes, like the guy that signed up to vote through ACORN 90 times (for a dollar each time!) and Obama's crew voted that many times in his place.
My estimation at this time is that we need at least 10 million extra votes to counter the fraud. If the amnesty thingie is put in place, it will be a lot more.
When the black boot heads for Conservative Tea Party type Patriotic citizens' necks it won't get the spit shine (they expect lickin', as a kid, knowing the definition of a lickin', that's the kind they're in for) they expect.
LOL, you misread MY reply, it wasn’t directed at you at all, read that again. “you merely tell them”
“”you merely tell them, do what you will, but here I take my stand, fame, fortune, dignity, prestige, status, power, can all be stripped from me, I will face whatever the cost rather than go down your road.””
I think you posted that to the wrong person.
My post 63 to metafugitive said this “”Palin didnt get fired, and you dont have the details about her leaving although you are posting your claimed ones.””
Paula Dean is being fired, this isn’t a case of her conditions not being met and a contract not being reached, she is being kicked out, fired, terminated, she isn’t turning down a gig voluntarily, she would do anything to not be fired.
She tweeted, put a major Facebook post up about amnesty, then wrote an editorial for Breitbart. I don't think that shows any kind of control by Fox, nor does it look like she isn't attacking this frontally. It's clear she is hitting this topic in every way she can.
It remains to be seen how Fox will use her reporting and editorializing. One thing for sure, meta f has been wrong..........a lot.............. with his take on Palin from the moment he came on to this thread.
Food Network’s official stance on Paula Deen is that her contract is not being renewed at the end of the month. And since I understand they are also pulling all her shows off the air, that’s a pretty strong statement.
That said, I’ve got thirty years in media, with a good portion of it covered under contract. Not having a contract renewed, while not being fired in the strictest sense of the word, is essentially the same thing. You’re still being told by your employer that you’re not welcome at work on Monday.
We don’t know the exact details of, and reasons for, Palin’s departure from FNC the first time. And unless either side cares to reveal them, that’s for the best.
I have always recognized GW as his father's son and committed to the NWO that GHWB was committed too.
I believe that we have no reason to think that Palin was fired, zero reason, and that we all know that Paula Dean WAS fired.
You could be right. However, the net result in both cases was the same, through non-renewal of contract.
I’ve both gained and lost jobs in the industry through contracts and when mine ran out, it was the same thing.
I guess you don’t sign petitions either or participate in any other form of activism or participation for your causes to your representatives. If you have any that is.
Results the same? Being fired or pursuing and failing to meet the talent’s requirements? I don’t think so.
A few months after what we assume were contract negotiations, Palin is back at Fox. On the other hand Paula Dean was fired, and that I’m betting is a whole different ball of wax in regards to her future.
I bet Paula Dean would not agree with you that she is in the same position with her network future, that Sarah Palin was 5 months ago with Fox.
Do you have a job there the next morning? No. Results, while worded differently, are essentially the same.
Of course, as you put it, 'pursuing and failing to meet the talent's requirements' will often result in non-renewal of a contract. That's often expressed in ratings (in my own case it came when a show I was doing was switched to another provider by a rights grantor, and they preferred their own talent).
You're right to note that they aren't worded the same. And yes, Palin is back at Fox. It's not unheard of in the broadcast industry for seemingly insurmountable obstacles to be overcome with some ease. But if you've been in the industry, you know that the terms mean the same thing. How you rebound determines the type of media personality you are.
You're also right to say that Paula Deen's broadcast future isn't as rosy as Sarah Palin's.
