Palin Challenges WaPo ‘Wusses’ to Go After Obama Like They Did Nixon
Mediaite ^ | July 27, 2014 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 07/27/2014 5:48:30 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin took to Facebook today to rail against The Washington Post for not covering President Obama‘s scandals with the same journalistic tenacity as they did with Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal all those many years ago. Palin called them all “a bunch of wusses” for not being the least bit interested in challenging this president.

Palin writes, “The public knows of our current president’s incompetence, denials, and cover-ups, but would be well served if we could count on your resources to dig deep for truth in all matters pertaining to Team Obama.”

She contrasts how the Post aggressively kept the pressure on the Nixon White House with how they’re “virtually ignored” what she frames as Obama’s equivalent of the 18.5 missing minutes: “1.2 million minutes of deleted communications” by the IRS.

Palin takes note of how the president has committed “impeachable offenses” (impeachment, of course, is a cause Palin has aligned herself with in recent weeks), and challenges the Post to show some integrity.

I challenge you to lift a finger and help protect democracy, allow justice for all, and ensure domestic tranquility by doing your job reporting current corrupt events fairly. If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity.

Those running the Washington Post’s show now, compared to those during the Nixon era, are too afraid of being uninvited to the permanent political class’ cocktail parties and petty gossip fests, making you all a bunch of wusses. I challenge you to get to work.

Palin actually got called out in the Post recently when religion columnist Sally Quinn said that Palin is “the epitome of self-centerednewss” and suggested “a long, silent retreat for her.”

Eh, they may be wusses, but the reason they don't go after Obama is because they support his policies. Who cares if Obama is a criminal and should be fired (and imprisoned) - he supports the Sodomites, unfettered abortion, and all anti-Christian movements. And, oh yes, he hates America. To the Wash Post and NY Times Obama is golden.

Too bad the readership of the Washington Post isn’t interested in the truth. If it’s not reported, it’s not true. They only believe what they are told to believe.

Yeah, they can go after a private citizen(who has broken no laws) living thousands of miles away from the seats of power BUT they cannot bring themselves to report on the lawlessness of the Obama regime.

It is difficult to take them on when they refuse to do anything other than yell and scream at people they disagree with. Is most difficult to have an intelligent conversation with a liberal. They (liberals) lose it about a Conservative’s first sentence. But you already knew that so this post was useless. Sorry for wasting your time and mine.

I go back and forth on the AC thing. I’m waiting for a 3 1/2 year peace for Israel.

But, I do believe he is evil. I was at an AA meeting years ago and some guy said he didn’t believe in satan. I said to him “When the meeting is over we’re all going to hold hands and say the Lord’s prayer. Part of that prayer is asking to be delivered from evil. Where do you think that evil comes from?” I don’t know if it connected or not. But I put that story in there for people who say they don’t believe in the AC. If there is such a thing as evil, then there must be such a thing as good. And they both have to come from somewhere. Because I don’t believe man is inherently good or evil.

It is amazing a liberal press and liberal politicians will attack, attack and attack a private citizen. Sarah is certainly not the first, private citizen, to experience their wrath. Sarah will not be the last. Sarah is saying what needs to be said, in truth, only to be met with venom from the snake pit of the lamestream and liberal politicians. I applaud Sarah for taking the fight to them. Sarah is a Hero!

Easier to beat them at their own game by staying calm and stating the truth. Liberals hate the truth. The truth sheds light on their most sacred of all sacreds .... Lies. Sarah is beating them like a drum.

Obama is an antichrist. Whether he is “The One” of whom the prophets of old spoke of, we cannot yet know, but he is most definitely an antichrist, and if he is not then he is the closest One yet to “The One” who is still to come.

So Ben Bradlee’s former mistress is now a “religious columnist?” How is she on the Islamofascist religion, I wonder?

Some of the same type of crimes but Nixon had enough respect for the office to remove himself. Obama would not step down under any circumstances.

woodward and bernstein have been very quiet about the clintons and obama. It is as if they protect the democrats.
Look at past history and you see when the democrat party is involve there is much corruption and support for our enemies. Millions of people have been killed by their policies.

Meanwhile woodward and bernstein and their types see no evil as the speaking fees they get from a Soros funded group pay them off.

Sarah Palin – former governor of Alaska, erstwhile candidate for VP of the U.S. and polarizing public figure – has unveiled a new subscription-based Internet network that promises direct access to her and her supporters.

The Sarah Palin Channel, which costs $9.95 per month or $99.95 for a one-year subscription, will feature her commentary on “important issues facing the nation,” as well as behind-the-scenes look into her personal life as “mother, grandmother, wife and neighbor.” Palin serves as executive editor, overseeing all content posted to the channel.

“I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms — and no need to please the powers that be,” said Palin, who is also a Fox News contributor, in a video announcing the channel. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”

Palin created the channel with Tapp, the online-video venture formed by Jeff Gaspin, former chairman of NBCUniversal Television, and Jon Klein, former president of CNN U.S.

Channel members will have the ability to post their own videos to the Sarah Palin Channel, submit questions to her and participate in online video chats with her and other subscribers. Active U.S. military members can subscribe free of charge, according to TAPP

You’re welcome!

Back to the subject of this thread.

When the news media decided to choose sides and refuse to do investigative reporting on one political party, we end up with the modern day Democrat party immersed in deceit and corruption. Proper reporting would have prevented so many of our nation’s current problems.

It is necessary that an unbiased press is one of the cornerstones to ensuring our Republic remains a Republic. The press has lost their way and it is time for the press to return to the intent of the Founders. They (the press) maybe will not and the press has been guilty since the time of Thomas Jefferson in not reporting the truth or reporting half truths. To ensure Freedom for themselves (the press) and their children then it has become a necessity they return to reporting what is known and not participating in cover ups for those they support. To not return to the intent of the Founders is to guarantee the press’s demise, their children's demise and America's demise. Don't know, here at my local, if the press is up to the task but they had best be for soon they shall pass into oblivion without any excuses that will suffice for their lack of truth. God hates liars and a majority of the American public does also.
