Sarah Palin Blasts Obama's Handling of Egypt (Obama handing over Egypt to Muslim Brotherhood)
abc ^ | 2/6/2011 | SARA JUST

Posted on 02/06/2011 6:59:19 AM PST by tobyhill

Sarah Palin blasted the Obama administration's handling of the Egypt crisis on Saturday in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network.

"This is that 3 a.m. White House phone call, and it seems for many of us trying to get that information from our leader in the White House, it seems that that call went right to the answering machine."

Palin's reference to a 3 a.m. phone call referred to the 2008 bruising primary battle between now-President Obama and now-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over responsiveness to unexpected foreign policy crises.

In the CBN interview, which was conducted Friday immediately following Palin's speech in honor of President Ronald Reagan's 100 birthday but aired Saturday night, the former Alaska governor questioned who might lead Egypt after President Hosni Mubarak if he were to resign.

I wish she would tell us what she would do if she was President. That seems much better than bashing Obama which is like kicking a dead dog.

I wasn’t aware that she had declared her candidacy. When did that occur?

You must have missed the speech. She mentioned ramping up domestic energy production. She mentioned cutting corporate tax rates across the board. She talked about cutting overall spending. She discussed reforming entitlement programs, reducing over-burdensome regulations, and ending the big government/big business cronyism that is corrupting our system.

If the USA would have started drilling 10 years ago, we could now tell the muslims to kiss our collective ass. Now we have become so addicted to their oil that we have to roll in the mud and kiss their feet to keep production up.
Makes you wonder where the greens get their funding?

Not exactly, the dead dog still has the power, and he is using it to destroy the US any way he can.

I guess you didnt read her reply....she said that it’s not wise to pick sides like wonderboy Obammy did without verifying who is behind these people pushing for democracy- our interest is not to have Islamists taking over and the O Adminstration better have good foreign intelligence to divide who are the real players instead of rushing to fix something that would harm our influence in the region

Sarah Palin: “Remember, President Reagan lived that mantra trust but verify. We want to be able to trust those who are screaming for democracy there in Egypt, that it is a true sincere desire for freedoms and the challenge that we have though, is how do we verify what it is that we are being told, what it is that the American public are being fed via media, via the protestors, via the government there in Egypt in order for us to really have some sound information to make wise decisions on what our position is. 

Trust but verify, and try to understand is what I would hope our leaders are engaged in right now.  Who’s going to fill the void?  Mubarak, he’s gone, one way or the other you know, he is not going to be the leader of Egypt, that that’s a given, so now the information needs to be gathered and understood as to who it will be that fills now the void in the government.  Is it going to be the Muslim Brotherhood?  We should not stand for that, or with that or by that.  Any radical Islamists, no that is not who we should be supporting and standing by, so we need to find out who was behind all of the turmoil and the revolt and the protests so that good decisions can be made in terms of who we will stand by and support.”

-Sarah Palin

When I think back to the Bush-Gore campaign and during a debate W said “We’d better get after it” ... he was talking about ANWR. I still get upset. He had both houses of Congress and yet drilling seemed to be put on the back burner. Even after 911 when it was even more obvious how bad we need it. And what happened? We got a muslim who won’t allow drilling anywhere.

I’ve changed my prayer for this nation. I now ask that God do whatever He has already decided to do. Personally, I believe this nation has turned it’s back on God and we will not survive.

Obama is far from a dead dog, and he is going to be re-elected unless the GOP candidate methodically takes him and his works apart.

Now, other than Mrs. Palin, which GOP wannabee is consistently criticizing Obama?

For that matter, which GOP wannabee has uttered ONE SINGLE WORD against Obama?

There is only one candidate who is seriously in opposition to the destruction of the nation. Only one.

And you know who that is, don't you?

Is it going to be the Muslim Brotherhood? We should not stand for that, or with that or by that. ............................................... That is golden if she didn’t use a teleprompter. Palin could be the beacon of Liberty to all those women in the Muslim world. The more I listen to her, the more I support her. She could be beyond a Margaret Thatcher. Its no wonder they hate her as they do. I say, Run Palin, and lets roll the dice.

“Makes you wonder where the greens get their funding?” ~ Yorlik803

Starting today, the Washington Examiner is running a special report on “Big Green”: the alliance of progressive activists, environmental groups like the Sierra Club, and the Democratic Party that has become perhaps the most powerful single lobby in Washington today.

How the Environmental Movement Became Just Another Washington Power Bloc
http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/how-the-environmental-movement-became-just-another-washington-power-bloc/?singlepage=true

It’s not just a band of flannel-shirted environmentalists any longer; it’s become a big-money, major player in Washington power politics and American elections.
September 27, 2010 - by Charlie Martin

Starting today, the Washington Examiner is publishing a five-part special report in association with Pajamas Media on “Big Green”: the alliance of the Democratic Party, environmental groups, and activists in the progressive movement. It’s not just a band of flannel-shirted environmentalists any longer; it’s become a big-money, major player in Washington power politics and American elections.
In this first of our five-part series in coordination with the Examiner, we consider how the consensus for environmental regulation in the ’60s became a source of political power and big money when it was taken up as a cause by the ruling class.

Starting today, the Washington Examiner is running a special report on “Big Green”: the alliance of progressive activists, environmental groups like the Sierra Club, and the Democratic Party that has become perhaps the most powerful single lobby in Washington today.
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columns/special-editorial-reports/Big-Green-Theyre-the-green-gorillas-of-American-politics-103831954.html

It was, to some extent, a “stealth” campaign. “Conservationists” had been around for a hundred years, and the original Environmental Protection Agency was, after all, pushed through by Richard Nixon. Partly because of events like the Cuyahoga River fire in Cleveland in 1969, there was a general agreement in the 1960s that pollution of the air and water had become too obnoxious and that something had to be done.

The environmental movement quickly got involved with the New Left, becoming a sort of side-show for anti-war demonstrations while pollution became one of the litany of evils of what had been traditional American life. Along with real issues like river and lake pollution, there had been Paul Ehrlich’s book The Population Bomb, published in 1968; the Club of Rome’s book The Limits to Growth, in 1972; and a succession of other doomsday scenarios in the popular press.

What started as a largely bipartisan issue in the 60s began to transform into a more distinctly partisan issue in the 70s. Looking back, what was happening was a natural agreement of interests: in all of these groups, there was the general assumption that the various evils of humanity could only be remedied by government action, led by the enlightened. This meant that government must become stronger, have more power, and broaden its authority to deal with these new problems.

The environmental movement was quickly co-opted.

There is a natural progression in these things. It began as a mostly grassroots effort organized into non-profit groups, with dues and boards and presidents. The dues were used, as with any interest group, to lobby the government, either in Congress or in executive branch agencies like the EPA. The environmental movement began to develop a constituency, and that constituency was increasingly identified with groups like the Sierra Club. As those groups grew, they became big businesses themselves, although organized and run as non-profits.

People hear “non-profit” and tend to think of ragtag operations run on a shoestring by selfless activists; the large, well-known ones are major corporations with multimillion dollar budgets, and people who operate multimillion dollar companies tend to have nice salaries and nice offices.

Increasingly, being an environmental activist, at least in the upper reaches, is becoming a well-paid, high-visibility job.

What these activist groups have to “sell” is their ability to get things done in Washington, which means their ability to get access to politicians. Environmental groups could offer this through access to their membership and by encouraging their members to support the politicians who were friendly to their issues. Voting power meant re-election for the politicians, re-election meant moving up the seniority ladder, and seniority meant exercising power ­ which made the politicians more attractive to the environmental groups. What’s more, for every elected politician, there are dozens of staff positions, committee staff, and dozens of staff positions within the non-profit groups.

Quickly, there arose an “environmental activism industry” ­ thousands of people whose livelihoods depended on environmental activism. The environmental activism industry, in turn, depended on one thing: the government’s power to effect change in the environmentalists’ favored direction.

Now, forty years later, we see the results. As the Examiner pieces today show, the environmental movement has become a billion-dollar industry, providing thousands of people with jobs, all devoted to managing ­ and, in general, to increasing ­ the government’s power.

There is “green power” ­ but it’s big government political power. There are “green jobs” ­ but they are for the politically connected people who direct and wield the political power.

And there are the rest of us, who wonder how such a worthy endeavor became just another power bloc.

Charlie Martin writes on science and technology for Pajamas Media.

She isn’t against or for the “revolution”.

She said we need to find out who is behind it and understand their motives before deciding if we should give them our blessing.

I understand your pessimism but do not totally agree. While there are still people that believe in this country, that believe in American Exceptonalism, and still have the freedom to speak their mind, we must have hope.

Hearing the speech by Sarah Palin, driving those ideas and thoughts inherent to the soul of true Americans, there is still hope if we all stand together and fight the good, hard fight.

Be proud of your conservative spirit, do not allow the MSM to intimidate, as it has the Republican Party over the last 50 years. The war for control of the future of America is raging, we won a battle in November, that has to be just the beginning. We must incrementally win back control, just as the left incrementally took control over the last century.

Sarah Palin is a fool! You can't she preach states rights at home and be against a revolution in Egypt.

Oh? States rights at home has to do with our country's political framework, and the role between the federal government and the states. What's occurring in Egypt is completely removed from that debate, and anyone can address one or the other at will. To call her a fool for doing so is disingenuous, at the least.

Then again, not being familiar with your FReeper name, I wonder if you're one of those anti-Palinbots who's sole interest is sewing dissension, for the sake of dissension, on any thread about Palin, instead of joining in the debate. If so, shame on you, you lessen FR's effectiveness with your sleaze. If not, I'll gladly stand corrected. But I suggest showing it by cooling your rhetoric.

Oh, one last thing; before you call me a Palinbot, I'm not. I like her a lot. I like the fact that she speaks out. We all should. But I've not set my sights on anyone for 2012, except to say NO to Romney, Huckabee, Gingrich, Bush, Rudy, or any close-to-democrat poseur.

"She isn’t against or for the “revolution”.

Exactly! That's why she is a fool. Right now, today Americans are fighting and dying in Iraq because we, the Americans, chose to remove a dictator. In Egypt the Egyptians have chosen to remove a dictator, without risking the lives of American soldiers and this dolt speaks out against it? Yes Palin is a fool of the highest order. Why didn't she come out immediately and state her position after the revolt? This cowardly idiot sits back and just opposes whatever the administration does. That's not leadership. That's what high school girls do on Facebook. This dolt backs a dictator and fools like you back her. I side with the people. STATES RIGHTS DAMMIT!

Newt. I will qualify that by saying I just spent the last 9 days in Brazil with limited internet and TV news that was, for the most part, in Portuguese. When I came home two days ago it appeared that Newt was embroiled in some controversy over comments he made about how Obamalamadingdong was handling the situation in Egypt. The typical Liberal talking heads seemed to have their nickers in a bunch over it. Please note: This comment should in no way be interpreted as offering any support whatsoever in any way for the Newtster. Just an observation made by a travel weary mind......

When you stand up for “States Rights” it doesn’t mean that the results will always be what you wish. I believe in the right of people to decide their own destiny. I also believe that if their rights infringe on the country I swore an oath to defend, we maintain the right the right to nuke their ass back to the stone age.

Thanks. I love her response to the CPAC question. Also, I suppose I should not be surprised, but her entire Egypt answer is more thoughtful and coherent than the sentence or two that she’s been quoted on from it.

Do you know, does either her mom or dad have that odd speech pattern, whereby she adds a ‘there’ or a ‘that’ demonstrative determiner, as they call it grammatically, when it really doesn’t add to or clarify her statement? I wonder where she gets it. I guess it is harmless, but I think it may detract from her sounding authoritative and involved in specific issues.

You can't be serious. Does she support the dictator or not? Go check her Facebook and/or Twitter and let us know if she stands for democracy or if she is still waiting to see "who the players are".

She was quite clear, mature and coherent on it. If it is raving terrorists orchestrating this overthrow, she’s not for it. Democracy is fine as long as it is not done by and for such—and we need to be sure of who is behind the curtain before becoming cheerleaders for it all. She also suggested that Obama likely has better information on that than he has made public.

There you go again. Now, not only is Sarah Palin a fool, she’s a dolt, she’s a coward. At least you answered my question as to who and what you are. Thanks for that.

So, you’re on the side of the masses who obviously want freedom, liberty and democracy. Uh huh. And any one who asks the question of just what are we going to get if the revolution succeeds, is a dolt. Because, well, we always have to be on the side of revolution. Or, WITH THE PEOPLE as you put it.

If there’s a dolt around, I submit it isn’t Sarah Palin for wanting answers. It’s those who attack her for anything she says just because they can. It’s those who stir dissension for dissension’s sake like yourself who are the jerks.

Egypt is a very murky and unresolved issue right now. We don’t know how it will work out, but the administration’s untimely call for Mubarek to step down is not a well thought out policy, for just the reason that Sarah Palin points out. WE DON’T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT WE’LL GET, AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE ANSWERS. But all that be damned. After all, who are we to question the administration as you say...”This cowardly idiot sits back and just opposes whatever the administration does.” If that’s cowardly, I’ll take more of it, thank you.

f the USA would have started drilling 10 years ago, we could now tell the muslims to kiss our collective ass.

You are so correct! I been telling everyone I know this little fact. People have such short memories plus we are bombasted, can I say that?, with stupid news everyday it's hard for them, unlike us Freepers, to distinguish between the BS.
