With 'friends' like that, you don't need many enemies ;o)
I have a pretty good idea what that name would be, I won’t post it either. Boy these Celebutards live in their own pretty little world where they have their limo drivers drive them everywhere and they don’t have to buy groceries because their maids buy it for them. I wonder how they would survive if they had to live like ordinary Americans do, I bet they’d survive 5 minutes
One President Sarah Palin in the White House is worth two Romney’s in the MASS Gov mansion...
Republican Politicians never stood up for Reagan either, he had to do it all on his own and so does Sarah. The GOP has become the Democrat Lite, when they call me up asking for donations I tell them off and hang up on them. You wouldn’t believe how many times I get voice mail messages on my cell phone asking for money from the GOP. I just delete them all
Sarah Palin received security briefings every single day. The proximity that Alaska has to Russia and other foreign countries is a fact. North Korea can send a missile that can reach Alaska. Sarah Palin NEVER said that because of the proximity that Russia has to Alaska, that gives her foreign policy experience, that was Tina Fey but of course these libtards will never say that. They are too far gone on their love for their Messiah. Funny, no one said anything when Obama himself said that his childhood in Indonesia gave him foreign knowledge. Where was the media on that “gaffe” oh yeah, I forgot, no where to be found
You misunderstand what “paleo conservative” means.
It is essentially the same as “real conservative,” as opposed to “neo-conservative” that means globalist sellout.
None of ron’s gang holds any claim to the term.
The author’s main point was that people vote for people who are “just like me,” and he is correct.
all dead on
I get those same phone calls. I won’t send the GOP another penny. I will send individuals money, if they represent my values.
Duncan Hunter got money. If Palin runs, she will likely get money. Possibly Pat Toomey will get money. The rest will have to do without my help.
Of course she is bright. Her problem is that she does not have the academic credentials to prove it, as Obama does. IAC. she is in my opinion the most affective stump speaker around, but she does not speak the academeese that allows Obama to impress even the conservative media. They ascribe a depth to his speeches that I do not see. What they responding to is less the lyrics than the music. Obama sings arias while Palin belts out songs.
Conservatives are pro-lifers and really mean it. They are not faux "constitutionalist" evasion artists like paleoPaulie. Real conservatives support the institution of the family against attempts by Lance and Bruce to play marital make-believe. Or Lance and Bruce and their dog Gruff. Not even if they include the "family" goldfish and turtle. There are just some places where our toys do not belong.
Globalism is internationalism. Conservatism is interventionism. Wimpy cowardice in matters foreign and military is paleowhateverism.
Real conservatives do not pose for holy pictures as fiscal conservatives while stuffing appropriations bills with massive pork for their districts, while voting against the bills for cosmetic purposes, while more honest thieves pass the bills and the Galveston pork along with their own.
Actual pro-lifers and conservatives do not pose for holy pictures on the one hand, while denying federal jurisdiction over abortion (wink, wink, folks, no worry that the libertoonians will lose their precious "rights" to kill their innocent unborn under SCOTUS and Roe vs. Wade), while nonetheless filing pro-life bills in Congress which will go nowhere just because the paleowhirlingdervish is the sponsor. I would think that you would agree that this is not an issue where such dishonesty and fraud are tolerable.
I did not realize that El Run Paulie had a gang. They certainly were not very visible in last year's primaries, despite the anti-American media's best efforts.
You misunderstand what "paleoconservative" means. Definitions:
1. A phony and a fraud posing as "conservative" i.e. Ron Paul; and
2. Political dead meat.
Oh, and since you brought it up, "neoconservative" means one of a number of octogenarian and nonogenarian mostly NYC intellectuals formerly associated with socialism and a moderately hard left who fled the Demonrat Party and their own leftist views on many things when the soviet Americong seized the Demonrat Party under McGovern, circa 1972. Most are dead now (Sidney Hook and others). Some are still with us: Midge Decter, Norman Podhoretz, Gertrude Himmelfarb, Irving Kristol? and a few more. They are a remarkable group who were willing to defect to our side. They are not notable UN lovers or internationalist anythings. They simply do not stick their heads in the sand hoping that the baaaaad men will just go away. As one of them (Walt Whitman Rostow) said to LBJ in response to the wimpy dreamy nostrum of seeking to reach the "hearts and minds" of the reds in Vietnam: "Grab them by their short hairs and their hearts and minds are sure to follow." Rostow had it right on that score. El Run Paulie, Al Qaeda spokesman in Congress and his paleopals do not get it and probably never will.
I am one conservative who had a bellyful of peacecreep scum thirty some odd years ago and I will not change my mind about them or their successors now or ever.
SHe never said she could see Russia that was tina fey. How do we know what she knows she has not had a chance to speak for herself. SHe had to watch what she said as V.P. candidate.It is all talking points. No other candidate except Bush goes through this.
So then, you should have no objection to the bailouts, welfare programs, and other forays of Big Government into American society.
After all, we are just being "our brother's keeper," right? And it's all for "the common good," isn't it?
I have no problem with helping others, but I do have every bit of a problem getting into government and forcing Americans to help others, whether the objects of help are domestic or foreign.
Does it rhyme with ducking masspoles ?
Whoa hup there, Mariner!
With the Seward Peninsula of Alaska to the east, and Chukotskiy Poluostrovof Siberia to the west, the Bering Strait separates the United States and the Russian Federation by only 90 kilometers. It is named for Danish explorer Vitus Bering, who spotted the Alaskan mainland in 1741 while leading anexpedition of Russian sailors. This view of the region was captured by MISR's vertical-viewing (nadir) camera on August 18, 2000 during Terra orbit 3562. The boundary between the US and Russia lies between Big and Little Diomede Islands, which are visible in the middle of the Bering Strait. The Artic Circle, at 66.5 degrees north latitude, runs through the Arctic Ocean in the top part of this image.
"Little Diomede Island is located about 25 miles (40 km) west from the mainland, in the middle of the Bering Strait.It is only 0.6 miles (1 km) from the International Date Line and about 2.4 miles (4 km) from the Russian island of Big Diomede. The highest point in Little Diomede Island is 919 feet (280 m). This island has a population of 170 and is the westernmost landmass in the world. Big Diomede Island is the respective counterpart."
(Diomede = 'DYE-o-meed')
The article is from Wiki, and the satellite photo from NASA, of course.
What a putz. Have you ever actually read anything she has said? She didn't say you can see Russia from her house, she did say there were parts of Alaska from which you can see Russia, this is a true statement and not a gaff. It was only a gaff when the MSM misquoted her as they have done on many other of her statements.
She already has demonstarted far more knowledge than the average RINO and her stewardship of Alaska was excellent. She accomplished everything she set out to do, everything she allowed herself 4 years to accomplish and she did it in a little over 2 years, she spent less money than any previous governor, cut spending, brought oil and gas revenue to Alaska got the Natural Gas pipe line, something no other governor before her had done, rolling.
People like you just demonstrate your ignorance of Sarah's accomplishments which outweigh most other Governors in the USA. She doesn't need to do "her homework" as others have stated, that is a BS statement.
She is far more competent that either Bozo the WH clown and McCain, the Democrats pick for ass kisser of the year. I'm voting for Sarah, just as she is, regardless of what party she is running in and if she doesn't run I will write her name in. You vote for the RINO of your choice, none of them will ever win a Presidential election again.
I’ve never been to AK,have you? While in the service I was told by another serviceman that when walking guard duty in AK he could see the Russan guards walking their post. This was in the late 50’s.
This dumbass never went to one of her rallies, especially at the end when she went "rogue."
No, he picked her to bring the Conservative base on board, which up until that point, had abandoned him, and also to try and pick up the seriously pissed off PUMAs from the debris of Hillary's campaign after Obama's goons had wrecked it.
Little Diomede Island, U.S. (Left), and Big Diomede Island, Russia, (Right)

Rabs, thanks for the very good SP_Middleclass vs Elite/proto-Maxist class analysis from “Southern Avenger” Jack Hunter. IMO he hits on a very real class war that has possiblity of becoming open warfare. SP may morph into the type of leader for the Middleclass....
I have been generally of the same opinion on Jack Hunter in the past but have found him making more rational sense after the election of BHO. I think he sees what conservatives see is coming and is trying to raise some flags. A bit o’ libertarianism probably will not kill you.
Why would you get banned for posting the word "chaff"?
How was that a "gaff" ..as you can and it a geopolitical reality of a hostile nuclear power 40 miles off it shore while being isolated from the rest of the US for support...no other US Governor deals with any thing like that...the left played on the US populace's ignorance...
Bill Clinton when asked a similar question spoke of his commanding the Arkansas National guard..I know TX can be a little grumpy at times.. but it's not like being out on a limb by yourself with Russia with nuks next door...
AK knows any war they get wacked first and supported by CONUS America last
Jack Kemp used to say something to the effect of: What you subsidize you get more of. What you penalize you get less of. Is it any wonder that we are in the mess we are in today?
I fail to see the connection between welfare programs and sending rescue workers in the aftermath of tsunamis Southeast Asia or Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana to literally save lives of folks stranded in collapsing or flooded buildings. I hope your grandma does not need to be pulled from her nursing home as the waters rise and you are whining about not wasting money on her and other similarly situated.
I also fail to see how the boogie....err, Big Government is the result of spanking those who were the perps of 9/11 and those who cheer them on and harbor them.
I see a very strong connection between gelding America in such situations and the all purpose loss of American backbone or whatever and other forms of paleoPaulieism.
Randianism is a junkyard philosophy. So is Paulistinianism.
When [provably] Satans minions scream their hatred about a person, it tells you a lot about both the screamers and the person they’re screaming about.
Agreed. I thought it was, whether intentional or not, insulting.
What she didn't say was that she could see Russia from her house. That was Tina Fey.
Then why did the U.S. do nothing about the Soviet gulags?
It is not the job of the United States government to go abroad looking for evil dragons to slay, much less the job of the U.S. government to compel by threat of force its citizens to pay for such an agenda.
Palin was more “moderate” than the media will concede. Or maybe independent is the better term. Thus she was able to work with Democrats until she gained the nomination. After that they turned against her for voicing a lot of ideas that many Alaska Democrats also support, which would include more control over local resources. It is their turning against her that made her job impossible, because the corrupt faction of her party also was against her. Like many another true independent, she has been opposed by the professional pols whose main aim is to stay in office forever.
“backwoods charm......... what an arrogant thing to say.”
Indeed. Palin has shown that she has boardroom charm, executive charm, international charm; the gal is just plain charming.
Consider me charmed!
It is the job of the United States to seek out dragons in their lairs when they threaten to rain fire on American citizens. Even the unmilitaristic Jefferson saw the need to take on the barbary pirates and follow them into their ports. Unfortunately he could not follow his own logic to its conclusion and build a proper blue-water navy.
Agreed, but soon we may use it anyway.
Neville Chamberlain was a cowardly and amoral idiot in his time as Ron Paul is in ours. Isolationism is not a movement likely to have a shelf life again any time soon. Thank God.
Patton and MacArthur thought we should have gone after the soviet gulags and after the existence of the soviet state. Unfortunately, spineless politicos would not follow. The US also had Curtis LeMay available in those days. Better by far to destroy the anti-American dragons in their lairs than to have them reach us as on 9/11. Paulie's notion of going on autosmooch in the presence of the enemy's naked butt is not a prescription for long-term survival. Are you another "free trade" enthusiast? Should we sell Ugo nuclear boomers or attack subs? Sell carriers to Red China? ICBMs to all comers? Our entire weapons catalog to Ahmanutjob? If not, why not???
What are people with Ramsay Clark's foreign policy doing here or calling themselves "conservative?"
Anyone on or off the Palin ping, write me.
No, Sarah Palin became famous after delivering a knock out speech at the Republican convention. In one terrific speech, she did what McCain could never do, solidify the conservative base.
Palin is taking back the mainstream from those who falsely define it. There is nothing mainstream about liberalism, the media or SNL morons. Sarah Palin IS Middle America!!!
Sarah is correct, you actually can see Russia from Alaska? It's a fact.
I research people’s background and beliefs.
Any person who is anti war and connected with those who are 9/11 Truthers hold the same views of the far left,
the Code Pinkos, Michael Moore, etc.
I was waiting for someone to set the record straight. Thanks.
You can see Big Diomede which is in Russia, from Little Diomede which is in the USA.
Thanks for making that point...the media/actors twisted her words, what she stated was the truth.
Conservatives are always called out when they get their facts wrong. Liberals on the other hand are not, and can therefore play fast and loose with the facts.
Based on this I always give the conservative the benefit of the doubt and assume the liberal is lying unless proven otherwise.
And I would vote for Clarence Thomas because he is just like me. And I am white.
It may have seemed out of context ONLY because certain crucial parts were edited out of the interview by ABC. Courtesy of Mark Levin, here is the entire relevant passage. The bolded underlined parts were edited OUT:
GIBSON: Lets start, because we are near Russia, lets start with Russia and Georgia.Who's responsible for her statement being taken out of context? Not Sarah Palin. And those bastards wonder why she doesn't trust them.
The administration has said weve got to maintain the territorial integrity of Georgia. Do you believe the United States should try to restore Georgian sovereignty over South Ossetia and Abkhazia?
PALIN: First off, were going to continue good relations with Saakashvili there. I was able to speak with him the other day and giving him my commitment, as John McCains running mate, that we will be committed to Georgia. And weve got to keep an eye on Russia. For Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country, unprovoked, is unacceptable and we have to keep
GIBSON: You believe unprovoked.
PALIN: I do believe unprovoked and we have got to keep our eyes on Russia, under the leadership there. I think it was unfortunate. That manifestation that we saw with that invasion of Georgia shows us some steps backwards that Russia has recently taken away from the race toward a more democratic nation with democratic ideals. Thats why we have to keep an eye on Russia.
And, Charlie, youre in Alaska. We have that very narrow maritime border between the United States, and the 49th state, Alaska, and Russia. They are our next door neighbors.We need to have a good relationship with them. Theyre very, very important to us and they are our next door neighbor.
GIBSON: What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you?
PALIN: Theyre our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.
You are absolutely right.
About six months ago, when I first posted this image of Sarah holding Trig, a fellow freeper replied: "I would take a bullet for that woman".
That is why the left is terrified of her.
