Gov. Perry indicted: Everything's big in Texas, even this B.S.... by Sarah Palin
FoxNews ^ | Aug 17, 2014 | Sarah Palin

Posted on 08/17/2014 8:53:36 PM PDT by Innovative

This ridiculous politically motivated “indictment” of Governor Rick Perry stems from the ugly thug tactics of the "politics of personal destruction" that the left is known for. They draw blood and leave scars on conservatives who threaten their political power, hoping the threat retreats and hoping his or her base of support remains silent in fear of becoming collateral damage.

Thankfully, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and those of us with scars to prove it can help others learn from things like this Texas-sized political drama.

Glad Sarah is speaking up on this travesty.

Agreed 100%.

I strongly support Perry (in this), and my support for Palin goes up with this.

Good article.

Gov Perry needs to announce that he is bringing back the old tradition of the Pillory , for use with public officials guilty of malfeasance or drunkeness . Like the Travis Co. DA
A week in pillory would be just about right for her .

I just wish there had been someone in GOP leadership who would have equally stood up for Palin when it was SHE who was on the receiving end of this kind of orchestrated political assault, impeding her from governing and putting her family into massive financial debt. The quiet from the GOP was deafening. Heck, I don’t even remember any fellow Republican leader speaking out vocally in moral support of her when her church was torched either.

Yeah, I’m still bitter.

Ping to Sarah's Amazing List!

As Innovative Said- It's a nice long, detailed article.

Good to know for us who don't live in Texas. It can't follow all the State internal Politics, that is why Sarah is here :)

She is NOT done yet, no sir.

Sarah doesn't need to GOP Greene, it needs her.

They never miss shooting themselves in the foot, after the GOP goes the way of the Whigs, you will Sarah as the leader of the New Second Party.

look at this post some idiot just posted on Sarah Palin’s Facebook site :

Lewis Hudgens Sarah Palin, You are a bad joke, and a worse Amercan, you and your ideas and your party makes me (a U.S. Army Veteran) ASHAMED TO BE IN AMERICA! You and folks like you are the problem in America today!!! Please I would LOVE to hear one, JUST ONE thing that the Republicans have done to help Americans in the last decade!! The FACT IS, YOUR A RACIST, and you can’t stand the fact that most Americans would rather have an African-American in the White House then a Republican, and it’s eating you up inside!(as it should) You are a disgrace to America, and everything it stands for! Until you can come up with ANYTHING other than Putting down our “Commander in Chief” your nothing more than a conspirator, a traitor and an unemployed con-artist that couldn’t even fulfil one(1) term as governor.Your opinions are laughable, your attitude is disgraceful, and your ideas are that of a NATZI !!! Please Stop TRYING to get up and talk, because you don’t have a clue about anything Constitutional, legal, or moral. Your comments are flat out lies to the American public. Most Americans don’t know what your base has done to them, instead of for them. They just jump on your racist bandwagon echoing everything that they hear, instead of finding out for themselves. If I could I would make sure that an African-American held the presidential office for the next 100 years, just so that it would drive your racist party crazier(than it already is, if that’s even possible) Our founding fathers would run you and the likes, out of town before you ever got a chance to spread lies like you have. You are a terrible person and I hope that “Karma” shows it’s head and gives you a “plateful” of all the Maliciousness that you have spread since you first “accidentally” got on Mccain’s ticket! I say accidentally, because if they had known that you couldn’t even answer simple questions like “what magazines do you read” then they NEVER would have made that mistake! But you sure know how to lie to the American people...at least the “uneducated” ones anyway! Well, THAT’S WHAT I THINK!!!!!!! P.S. I AM educated, White, and KIND! (Which I’m sure you don’t want to talk to, Because we have NOTHING in common)The difference between you and me, is that I DON’T enjoy saying nasty things about people, and I don’t LIE EITHER!) Good day Sarah...

Yeah, I’m still bitter.

So am I. Here is something I posted at Lucianne yesterday - and got 68 "likes"

Sarah Palin had his number in 2008. She said in her incredible speech:

"The Presidency is not a journey of personal discovery" and that you had to seek this position for the "right reasons".

This country would be a different place right now if more had listened to her and understood. But this is why those who were about to profit from BHO set out to absolutely destroy her - because she spoke the truth and the truth is a threat to them.

Amazing how many people still believe that she said she could see Russia from her house.

“P.S. I AM educated, White, and KIND!”

Sure you are. An educated person, who doesn’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re”. An educated person, who doesn’t know how to break a long, rambling rant into paragraphs. A kind person, who posts hateful rants on other people’s Facebook page, for fun. You may be white. There are a lot of white morons too.

She nailed it

Good to see her weighing in on the expected politics of destruction against Perry by the dems when they get called out for their criminal acts.

Nothing wrong with buying 92 bottles of vodka from ONE liquor sore in one year, but if you can’t obey the laws when you are triple drunk, it’s insane to stay in the position she is in

Was at a get together yesterday and the topic invariably turned to politics. Two sisters went at it over Elmer Fudd. Too bad tere was no popcorn.

I bring this up because the liberal sister was badmouthing Sarah. I had stayed out of it, having been reared to be a gentleman in these kind of situations. But I stepped in and said I was on Sarah Palin’s Christmas card list. The Conservative sister cracked up. Liberal sister - shut down.

Lewis Hudgens, like all leftists, simply lacks the intellect to grasp reality in addition to choosing evil over good.

These evil sickos cannot be rehabilitated.

There is only one outcome ahead of us - complete victory “by any means necessary”.

To greene and others, I believe Palin does address the lack of support from the GOP when she was being pummeled by the opposition ...

Key paragraph in Palin’s Fox editorial:

“Rick won’t have to worry about the Republican establishment piling on, either. He’s more ingratiated with the political machine than someone considered still an unknown who’d go rogue on GOP kingmakers when they acted unethically, so he’s fortunate to only face a firing squad from one side.”

And in even more focus:

“He’s more ingratiated with the political machine ...”

Translation:

He’s a sellout to the Establishment and has Plenty of Cronies with Big Pockets.

But framed in a much more diplomatic way as only Palin can. :)

Agree. Sen Ted Cruz also came to Gov Perry’s defense, almost immediately after the news hit.

Very admirable, considering the two have traded little barbs. Sen Cruz took the high road.

Sarah’s defending of Perry makes it a team ~ a GREAT team...in my book ;-)

Three sentences into that cretinous screed, the Race Card is pulled out. This is the typical drivel spewed out by the brainwashed minions of the Left who have absorbed the talking points. We call them Kool Aid drinkers. This individual may have mixed vodka with that Kool Aid, judging from the mindless comments made. A close examination shows opinion without factual basis.

Point #1: Being an U.S. Army Veteran does not make one an expert in the truth; no less learned in the proper use of the word “an” before the abbreviation “US.” If the word starts with a vowel sound, you should use an. If it starts with a consonant sound, you should use a. I am ashamed of the tragedy of America’s education system as administered by the government union schools. These schools are notably organs of the Democratic Party.

Point #2: “The FACT IS, YOUR A RACIST,” Once again, grammar is not your friend. It is not “your,” it is “you’re.” Name calling is the first sign that the user has no facts to support their statements. That this was done after the first three sentences, shows the vacuous reasoning being used. This is not even a good use of the Alinsky Method which seeks to demonize your opponent. Name calling just does not make it. And it violates Rule #8: “Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance.” The charge of racism is a worn out tactic. And, charging conservatives with racism is slander. It is the Democrats who are the true racist, according to my friend, Wayne Perryman.

Point #3: “most Americans would rather have an African-American in the White House then a Republican,” The Democrat tactics of identity politics made Obama the Affirmative Action President—twice! Other factors played in Obama’s second term reelection: Voters who tend to vote Republican stayed home and Mother Nature also helped: Superstorm Sandy. And the ineptness of a candidate knows no color.

Point #4: “Your opinions are laughable, your attitude is disgraceful, and your ideas are that of a NATZI !!!” Once again, you see name calling. This is also called political projection—calling your opponent something you do. With the IRS scandal, the Obama Administration is involved in tactics you would see in Nazi Germany. And an administration that aligns itself with the Hamas by attacking Israel’s interests has aligned itself with the anti-Semitic mindset that was the result of Amin el-Husseini’s collaboration with Hitler.

Point #5: “an unemployed con-artist that couldn’t even fulfil one(1) term as governor.” I see spelling is not his friend, either. “Fulfil” is spelled “fulfill.” Sarah Palin is not unemployed. She and her husband, Todd, run a commercial fishing business in Bristol Bay. Along with her book sales and her TV contracts, Sarah Palin’s net worth is estimated at $12 million. The logic is, if you make money, you are a con artist. Nice try, moron! This was as ridiculous a comment as something one would say with too much to drink.

As to the comment that Sarah Palin couldn’t fulfill one term as governor, tells me this Facebook troll has not done his homework on the subject. It has something to do with the facts involved with the decision to leave office. The reason for her resignation from the governorship has been hashed and rehashed. There is something more important than the governorship and the criticism she would receive for her decision. This tells much about Sarah’s unselfish nature. It was for the good of the state of Alaska. I think it is something about the future of her children and America’s children. It is about the Democrat’s threat to freedom. It is as simple as that. But then, for those who cloud their perceptions with the pursuits of money, alcohol, drugs and vices, would not know about the pursuit of freedom for they are slaves to their own ensnarements.

Point #6: I leave the rest to my FRiends.

Good vs. evil, it never ends. Not even Rev Al’s megaphone can drown out the voice of freedom. Gov Perry is a patriot and he will prevail, stronger and energized. God Bless the great state of Texas as well as those of faith across the nation. We will be victorious. It’s in the scriptures. The Great OZ has spoken.
