JAKE MILLER CBS NEWSMarch 1, 2014 Sarah Palin On Russian Action In Ukraine: Told You So
With Russian forces moving into Ukraine's Crimean peninsula and preparing for a possible deeper incursion into the former Soviet republic, former Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, took to Facebook Friday to boast that she saw it coming.
"Yes, I could see this one from Alaska," quipped Palin, who was her party's 2008 vice presidential nominee, in a reference to her assertion then that Alaska's proximity to Russia afforded her unique insight into U.S.-Russian relations.
In October 2008, after Russia's invasion of neighboring Georgia emerged as a foreign policy flashpoint in the homestretch of a heated campaign, Palin told an audience in Nevada, "After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next."
Her prediction was derided by Foreign Policy magazine as "strange" and "extremely far-fetched," but Palin, frequent media antagonist that she is, couldn't resist crowing about how events have played out.
"I'm usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as 'an extremely far-fetched scenario' by the 'high-brow' Foreign Policy magazine," Palin wrote Friday.

As usual, the LSM just wants her to shut up and pretend that nothing has happened despite her uncanny accurate predictions.
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
I can tell you that statement will be viewed as just another political “selfie” from Palin, who is not a “serious candidate.”
Even if she is right. Even if she is being derided by a chovanistic press.
Sarah Palin predicted this situation 6 years ago. The pundit fools, chattering monkeys, and the moronic politicians mocked her at that time.
Sarah Palin has more intuition and common sense regarding foreign affairs than all these nuanced pseudo-intellectuals put together.
All the fools were yucking it up to Tina Fey jokes, and now the world is paying a price.
This is what happens when you put the Choom gang in charge of very serious and sensitive international affairs. You get Choom gang style results.

Palin-Cruz 2016, or Cruz-Palin 2016, it doesn’t really matter - they’d win in a landslide even if they ran as independents. Screw the GOP, get ‘er done.
Putin Smashes Washingtons Cocoon
“I could see this from Alaska.” Now that’s funny!
They have labeled her as ‘not smart’, and they think of themselves and the liberal politicians they support as ‘really smart’. So when it turns out that she understood more than they did they have to deride it. It’s just required of them.
It's been said that Governor Palin has a photographic memory, and can see things ahead of time that others don't see.
If this woman runs in 2016, I will be a full-time volunteer.
She must be right over the target:
Not-VP Sarah Palin Invades US
Driven to distraction, National Security Advisor Susan Rice acknowledged,
"Ms. Palin won't stop calling to suggest we scramble jets, deploy special forces teams and send the President to the Black Sea to, in her words, 'frolic in the surf.'
Sarah Palin lives in their empty, arrogant heads, RENT FREE!
TYVM 2nd DivisionVet!!
Sarah Palin's Awesome Ping List!
But Putin is an even bigger thug who isn't going to play his silly game.
THIS is what happens when Grow-Ups aren't in charge and you meet a Non-Arbitrary force of nature like Putin.
They can Hate on Sarah all they want but when the Spantaz Come to Ethnically Cleanse their sorry asses, I won't be running to save them.
Some people are Wolves, Almost all on the left are sheep, Rice and them maybe wearing sheep's clothing but their fangs are showing through.
Susan Rice shouldn’t be opening her trap about anyone considering what she did, blaming Benghazi on a video, over and over and over again..what a maroon
And that means not have a Pill Pedaling Homo as a President screwing up everything he touches.
But oh Well, the TV tells me Sarah is stupid so that is what the Low Information Voter Believes.
However that Ignorance is only allowed to go so far until you meet people who are going to wake you up and hitting with a 2X4 with a nail in it.
Sarah Palin, always ahead of the curve and ON HER GAME!
That’s the truth!
She’s still the very best.
Just to mention, this article (or another very similar anyway) is currently #3 on Bing.
I could see this from Alaska. Now thats funny!
= = = = = = = = = = = = =
Yes, it is.
I am taking that to be a slap at the idiots who claimed she had actually made that statement.
Of course, NONE of them will pick up on it and will probably use it to say “See, I told you she said that”.
I would love to see her run for Senate this year - then if the opportunity opens up - go for it...
Even though the ‘e’ side of the R’s and the D pols don’t ‘like’ her, she may still come across well with the public, though I thought she should have run in 10 when her accomplishments were still fresh in peoples minds..
Now she’s # 2...
What will Obama take away from the Crimeria? I doubt he and people who surround him will take away nothing. Learn
nothing, do nothing but talk.
Just read on the tv trailer that Kerry said nubama may not attend the G-8 in Sochi because of Putin’s invasion of Crimea. OH SOB< SOB Now that would be a crying shame!
Sarah has had so many “I told you so” opportunities!
Maybe we should give them a consolation prize for putting Palin in her place, after their epic fail in Europe. Forget that we could end up in another cold war after we ended that last one due to the effort of Ronald Reagan. Forget that Easter Europe could be once again be dominated by Russia.
You’re right. She’s an evil liar and a traitor.
Oh for sure and yet, the other side and some supposedly on our side, revel in calling her dumb.
Sheesh, they’re the dumb ones and they’re arrogant about it, too.
You’re right on every count.
