Posted on 07/27/2014 8:10:40 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
Vowing to once again go around the mainstream media's filter like she did with her pioneering use Twitter and Facebook after the 2008 presidential election, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin launched her own member-supported digital TV channel on Sunday evening. ....
In a "Sarah Says" video that is featured on the site, Palin says the tragic downing of the Malaysian Airlines plane has "shifted the balance of world opinion against Vladimir Putin" since "there is a lot of evidence pointing to pro-Russian separatists" as being responsible for the "thoughtless massacre." She said that Putin, though, still holds "oil and gas prices over the heads of those" who are dependent on Russia's resources even as he is trying to distance himself from the separatists. Palin noted that Putin uses his energy resources essentially "as a weapon" against Europeans who are afraid to cross him. Palin said American needed to curb Russian power by developing its own resources and diluting Russia's. She said America could be a "natural gas exporter" if the government got serious about development.
Palin also said the Ukraine situation did not have to "escalate" because "a good leader steers world events" instead of merely going with the wind and responding to one crisis after another. She President Barack Obama is merely "reacting" to world events, which is dangerous in a world with bullies and tyrants intent on doing harm.
"America, you deserve better," Palin says of Obama.
During the 2008 presidential election, Palin was mocked for warning that Putin would invade Ukraine if Obama were elected.

I hope it finds great success.
Sarah knew back then that Putin wanted Ukraine and Obama would shrug it off.
Yet today some think Obama is opposing Putin.
Yes, apparently they take the left-wing media at face-value when they say that the strong, competent Obama is confronting Putin and determined to defeat him. When in fact Obama could not care less and probably couldn’t even find Russia on a map of the world.
Hope she does better than Newsmax TV on Directv - seems like 45 minutes of commercials surrounding 15 minutes of program every hour.....
Good for Sarah! I wish her lots of success.
Please vote for the Texas State Aquarium (Corpus Christi) for best in the U.S
Because I live there, the aquarium is excellent and it would please me to see it win best in the U.S. :)
I’m all for capitalism and all, but if she really is just trying to get her message out, it wouldn’t be behind a pay wall.
It looks like a compilation of her Facebook posts from the last year or so. I don’t get it. I really am stumped.
Her critics will have a field day.
But if it wins with votes from people who haven’t been there, that’s a hollow and fraudulent victory.
And, of course, it has nothing to do with this thread.
For her to offer parenting advice is also an easy set up for her critics.
1. If not a pay wall, then where would you prefer the funding come from?
2. Her critics will spew their hate, no matter what she does. They might not think it’s a field day, if her channel becomes financially sustainable. Apparently, there’s still time to make money shorting the MSM.
Did vote for Texas State Aquarium. It is the BEST in the U.S. without a doubt. Also sent link to others on my email list and told them to vote for Texas also!
OMG watching our national debt go up around 20K per second made me ill!
She could sell ads like everyone else. Calling it a "channel" and requiring a "subscription" is cheezy in my opinion. It isn't a "channel", it's a website behind a pay wall.
The cheezyness just takes away from her credibility, and her message is too valuable to be squandered like that. Just my opinion -- she can do whatever she wants. But I don't know what she is thinking.
But if it wins with votes from people who havent been there, thats a hollow and fraudulent victory. And, of course, it has nothing to do with this thread.”
Good grief. I was glad to see the link - regardless of whether it had anything to do with this thread or not. He maybe should have posted it in some other manner but he didn’t.
We are asked to participate in polls all the time on issues affecting states we don’t even live in and many of us do. I have been to all of the places listed on the poll except for one and IMO the one in Texas is the best. Too bad you’ve never been to ours. Personally, if you are not going to vote for Texas then I hope you don’t vote for any of the others.
It's a contribution wall. Get with the program. The Left funds its operations with various and sundry schemes to funnel money to their soldiers, usually involving YOUR tax dollars.
Contribute to YOUR side for a change. Do you donate to Free Republic during the quarterly fundraisers?
It's the same thing. Not only that, the Palace Guard media, Emperor Obama's fig leaf, will have to pony up to monitor her in real time. What's not to like? LOL! :)
HEAVEN FORFEND! that Sarah does something that will rile her critics!
(hint: merely breathing is enough)
Don’t be trash-talking Corpus.
She is not asking for donations, she is requiring a paid subscription for access to content. That, my FRiend, is a pay wall.
I'll say it again: It's just my opinion that it is cheezy, but she can do what she wants.
“She could sell ads like everyone else. “
Like Netflex? Or perhaps like Freerepublic?
Funding by ad or paywall each have their advantages and disadvantages. How much is your time worth to you? How many minutes of advertising would you tolerate, before you used up $9.90 worth of your time? By doing without ads, she won’t be beholding to sponsors (except for her viewer-sponsors). It’s a certain bet that, if she used advertisers, leftist organizations would be organizing boycotts, to get the advertising pulled. There’s plenty of precedent.
The proof of the pudding, as they say, is in the pudding. If her “channel” becomes financially sustainable behind a paywall, then that will prove the paywall works. If not — then you will be justified in posting a “told ya so”, when it shuts down.
Liberals across the land now have something new to be outraged about. They will try to divert attention away from Obumbles latest antics and idiotic public statements. I hope Sarah has media savy people she. can trust helping her to keep the website from being hacked or flooded by a vulgar torrent of lib hate. They need to be ready to edit incoming videos, and reject them if need be. Watch and see other political talkers follow her lead. Look out Glen Beck, guess who just became your virtual neighbor?
Will she have other hosts besides herself? It would make sense to have many likeminded hosts. I guess she remains on the Sportsmans Channel as well. Busy Lady.This would be a perfect opportunity for Bristol to get some hosting experience. Will Papa John McCain be dropping by for a spot of tea? Sarah has surprised me by this move. I’m surprised the news didn’t leak in news circles.
Every good sized town needs a good sized zoo, aquarium and botany exhibit. Astronomy Constelation Domes are important too.
Netflix is a subscription service and Free Republic asks for voluntary donations. So she is doing what Netflix does: pay for content with no ads.
...will be justified in posting a told ya so...
I haven't "told ya" anything except my opinion. I made no prediction or comment about whether it would be self sustaining or whether or not the "paywall works."
Hey, she has spoken to the group who has given Beck the chance for his network. And the the Big Oprah began hers just this month. Sarah rocks and this just might be her gig. The left must be knocking their knees at this time. All we should be concerned about is that if the Conservatives get this done, there is the possibility O-the-dick-tater would come out with his own network...just to keep his face front and center. He and his mate could show 24/7 photos and videos of the life, times, and lies of a former idol. Imagine photos and videos of foreign vacays, non stop fundraising, perhaps even a visit to his home town in Kenya or where ever. Might include the message of ‘transforming America and other socialist propaganda.
Good Luck Sarah! You rock!
The downside of Sarah’s subscription site is she will be “singing to the choir”.
The masses that need to hear her message will not get that opportunity.
Certainly a free, ad-based site would be more beneficial in getting her message out to those who need to hear it.
Thank you Grams! ((Hugs)) We’re currently at #5 in the voting pole!
Sorry, the best aquarium is here in baltimore.
Sarah Palin called in to the Michael Medved show this afternoon. Priceless. I love that girl.
She’s due to be on again later in the hour, discussing impeachment. I love the way she dealt with his accusation that she’s doing this for publicity.
