  • Sarah Palin demands openness on Trade Deal

    06/12/2015 7:53:36 AM PDT · 1 of 49
    The secretive, hugely impacting Obamatrade deal is another behind-closed-doors fast-tracked D.C. deal that screams "don't pass it 'til we know what's in it!" Yet politicians are going along to get along, supporting Obama's pet project while ignoring the public's right to know what's in this monumental international trade deal. This, despite the President's track record proving he hasn't got it in him to put American workers first.

    If Congress hands this secretive deal to Obama on a silver platter, admitting to not even reading it first, then shame on us for letting another one slide. This is fast-tracked, friends. Like Obamacare, when we sounded warning bells but too many were too busy to pressure their employees (your elected politicians) to do the right thing and learn it first. Since when is Congress able to halt any bullying administration's fast-track deals? They never have before. Didn't we learn last time?…/blood-in-the-water-34-conservat…/

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is sharing Breitbart News’ story on Facebook, following the close Rules vote ahead of Friday’s final vote on the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would grant President Obama fast-track authority to finish his trade negotiations.

    She also posted her reaction to the non-transparency this administration has shown in handling the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, which is keeping part of the draft in a secret room on Capitol Hill.

    “The secretive, hugely impacting Obamatrade deal is another behind-closed-doors fast-tracked D.C. deal that screams “don’t pass it ’til we know what’s in it!” Yet politicians are going along to get along, supporting Obama’s pet project while ignoring the public’s right to know what’s in this monumental international trade deal. This, despite the President’s track record proving he hasn’t got it in him to put American workers first,” Palin posted.

    The vote on TPA is expected Friday afternoon.

  • Sarah Palin calls out Hillary's Cash Scandals

    06/03/2015 8:27:32 PM PDT · 1 of 30
    These “Clinton Cash” scandals keep piling up; they illustrate the insiders' skewed priorities and disrespect for our great nation. America, these are ultimately YOUR tax dollars at work!

    So, let me get this straight: we borrow money from foreign countries to give to foreign countries, while America falls apart and we go broke. Meanwhile, politicians continually waste your hard earned money and get rich off their access to power. They're vultures, but remain oh-so-esteemed. Wake up, America. This is a dangerous game they play while ignoring the nation's real needs for security. Take for example the $165 billion in American arms sales to authoritarian regimes that turned around and donated a ton of cash to the Clintons. (And these weapons often end up in the enemy's hands because our weak administration doesn't require accountability. Fast and Furious, anyone?) Or consider the $145 million the Clintons bagged from investors as Hillary's State Department committed one-fifth of our nation's entire uranium production to them! Our own uranium sold to characters who'd potentially enrich it... leading to nukes... leading to the good guys' destruction.

    C'mon, voters. How does any of this serve our country? It’s as pointless as nation building in unfriendly foreign lands. It's as dangerous as lying about terrorist armies who seek to destroy us as being mere bench warmers, instead of just letting our military do its job and blow the bad guys straight to hell. We only have ourselves to blame if they – the politicians who work for us – are rewarded with time to do more damage. Only the insane would bless their repeated destructive incompetence and greed.

    Thank you, Peter Schweitzer and team, for showing us how the fat cats roll.…/21-new-clinton-cash-revelations…/

  • Sarah Palin welcomes Martin O'Malley into the fray

    05/31/2015 4:06:38 PM PDT · 1 of 31
    Yet another anti-freedom politician jumps in the race today for POTUS. As cool as he is with his rock 'n roll persona, this typical liberal's erroneous grasp of our Bill of Rights merely continues the strange and disastrous agenda of Barack Obama. Good to know he doesn't have much chance of winning. The democrats have greased the skids for their chosen one, despite the media games that play the public with various "competing" campaigns used for gamey distractions.

    With today's more-of-the-same distract-sphere – with the politician sounding exactly like all the others – don't you wonder if there are ANY good old fashioned Blue Dog democrats who can represent the left’s party in the 2016 race? I feel kind of bad for democrats who are as embarrassed about their party leaving them as some of us Republicans are about our own party when we hear the GOP talk a good game but dishonorably capitulate when given the majority power to stop Obama's nonsense.

    By now, most of those ol' Reagan democrats have come to realize that it was the party of Lincoln and Reagan all these years fighting for and winning the abolishment of slavery, civil rights for all Americans, equal rights for women, free markets, individual liberty, constitutional protections, private sector job growth, and a sensible foreign policy rooted in peace through strength. For those who still identify as democrats, it’s quite easy to bid a deceptive party an overdue farewell. Just tell me what state you're a resident of, and I'll post links to your voter registration office. Click on it. There you can finally bust free of a party that’s long since abandoned you. I recommend then registering "independent," or the equivalent of, in your state. Your newfound sweet freedom will empower you!

    Here's just one reason to do it: abolishing your name from the liberal's roll chips away at the democrat party's foundation that actually supports un-American acts like this:…/doj-internal-memo-confirms-obama-…

    This report ran in an old news cycle, but it remains relevant until a constitutional conservative leads our exceptional nation; for as long as the far left retains power via their numbers, the extent that they are willing to go to trample our Bill of Rights only grows. - Sarah Palin

    Can we all acknowledge that when it comes to Sarah Palin’s intentions, Mitt doesn’t know S#%t?

    And I agree with you 100% that he was in the tank. Which is why the Dems wanted him so badly since he INVENTED Obama-Care and would roll over for Obama’s second term.

    If not agreeing that she is the most awful person in the world and responsible for all the problems that we have in America makes me guilty of “worshipping” her, then call me guilty.

    But I really don’t care. The GOP can continue to lose from until I’m buried, as there is no difference whatsoever between the two left-leaning parties.

    Maybe if the GOP hadn’t worked hand-in-hand with the Democrats dating all the way back to the deliberate strategy of bankrupting her family and tarnishing her name with the provocative headlines those phony lawsuits engendered, she’d have had a half a chance of being the candidate you seem to think she should have been.

    And until Tucson, I think she was going to run…and win.

    I think Tucson changed everything. She no longer trusted most of those that she had once assumed she could trust after they clearly showed the eagerness to “finish her off” politically. Fox News became far more of a wishy-washy platform for moderates than a soapbox for conservatives, probably sensing that there would be consequences if they didn’t betray conservatives.

    And so we got stuck with Mitt. If it makes you feel good to blame Sarah Palin for that knock yourself out. But for my money, no one running in 2012 had what it took to win against Obama. And I have yet to see anyone aside from Ted Cruz who can do it this year. And the GOP would rather lose to Hillary than allow Cruz to win.

    You have to admit, this might just be the all-time stupidest anti-Palin rumor that’s been floated in years!

    Of course, it does do a GREAT job of drawing out the PDS crowd, as they are drawn to these stories like flies to a fresh pile.

    The only ones that work better are those in which they can take cheap shots at Sarah indirectly by attacking Bristol.

    But why should we be surprised that someone who writes for some rag called “Forward Progressive” would see her in the same way a vampire sees a Cross?

    Of course they will mock and belittle her. They’re Communists!

    They’re not afraid of the “useful idiots” of the GOP. They’ve been taking them to the cleaners for decades now.

    Sarah Palin and her like-minded conservatives, all young and full of ideas, are a direct threat to the utopia they’ve bought hook, line and sinker. So attack her they will. But she’s tough enough to deal with a dweeb like Allen Clifton. I’m pretty sure of that.

    Well, I wanted to just “agree to disagree”.

    But you seem determined to make me admit that you are 100% right and I am100% wrong.

    Ok. On her endorsements in 2010, she did a good job, but the establishment wasn’t prepared for it. They did manage to make sure that she was blamed for the losses in Delaware, Nevada and Alaska, even though the Delaware loss was the only one that she even bore slight responsibility for. I blame Rove for making it clear that the GOP preferred to lose and blame her than to unite behind O’Donnell. Whatever you thought of O’Donnell, she was the winner and the GOP’s lack of support was regrettable.

    In 2012 she supported Cruz and Fischer most notably. In Missouri she supported Steelman, who lost to Akins. Akins unfortunate comments made him instantly unelectable but that’s not on Palin. With Hatch, I wish she’d steered clear completely. I think the other guy was suspect. Kind of like I think Matt Bevins is suspect this year in Kentucky, as he has ties to Richard Blumenthal. BTW- Are you upset with Rand Paul for supporting McConnell here over Bevins?

    Which brings me to this year. You already have denounced any upcoming success that she might have in the Sasse race and the McDaniels race. Yet the GOP led by McConnell is throwing 100,000 bucks at Sasse in Nebraska and they are rallying around Haley Barbour and Cochran in Mississippi and denouncing McDaniel in very unsavory terms.

    And you suggest that she deserves no credit if they win, and yet she should throw herself into guaranteed losses?

    Sorry, but I suggest that you can find nothing but fault with her no matter what she does. Where am I wrong? Tell me what she has done that you haven’t dismissed?

    (BTW- Have you ever read any of her proposals? She had a great 5 point “Palin Doctrine” that she delivered in a speech in Colorado back in May 2011 that any libertarian supporter of Rand Paul should have applauded, as it was a big departure from neo-con thinking that has prevailed in the GOP for an awful long time.

    And lastly, regarding the money. She met at Newsmax Headquarters back in late 2010 with those so-called “Big Money” people. I wasn’t there, so I don’t know what was said. i do know that it was shortly thereafter that she was attacked very openly by the GOP. The same GOP that happily left her to be blamed for the shooting of Gabby Giffords by a deranged lefty.

    And then she was notably not invited to the 2012 convention, with the Romney people gloating about how they’d treated her like last weeks garbage as they hoped to impress the “moderates” by this mistreatment. Nevertheless, she urged us all to vote for Romney over Obama.

    Let me ask you this? In a hypothetical matchup between Hillary and Sarah, with no other possibility, who do you choose?

    As I stated in the first exchange, you hate her.

    That’s fine, it’s a free country.

    And I don’t need to defend myself against you. Think whatever you want.

    But as I said, you sam to know each and every shortcoming she supposedly has in great detail, as though you have a vested interest in running her down.

    So no, I won’t let you “turn the tables on me” because i already said that I don’t think she’s gonna run. i just think that she wants the same things that I want, which is a renewal of America.

    And I feel bad that she apparently let you down so badly. I guess that she owes you a personal apology.

    Well, it sounds like you HAVE done your fair share and then some so congrats. I stand corrected if I thought otherwise.

    But I also think you have an extensive knowledge of every “sin” that Sarah Palin is guilty of, as though tearing her apart politically is important to you.

    For what it’s worth, even though my name is palin45potus that’s more wishful thinking combined with a lack of an adequate replacement that is responsible for my not having changed it, because I doubt that she is gonna run. I hope so, but it’s just my gut feeling on this day and hour. She’s got a life in Alaska with a family who like it there, so if she sees someone who fits her idea of a solid conservative, I suspect she’ll be “all in” in terms of support.

    But I ask you: Why do you feel the need to denigrate her so? Do you want her to go away and never be heard from again? If so, why? Should we leave the world of GOP politics to Karl Rove and the “Big Money” people who he represents? Because they can and will change sides and support the Dems for a dollar more.

    At any rate, keep up all your hard work for conservatives.

  • Nothing Clever about Winning with Lies and Special Interest Riches

    05/03/2014 9:47:06 AM PDT · 1 of 1
    Over the past few weeks, political news outlets have been filled with articles beaming about the masterful strategy of the GOP establishment in crushing grassroots challenges.  They smugly celebrate the wily tactics of Senator Mitch McConnell, the Chamber of Commerce, and Crossroads in counterattacking the Tea Party.  But when you think past the initial headline, you will find that there is nothing special, clever, or innovative about their strategy.  It is quite simple.

    Members of the political class, which is comprised of the leaders in both parties, support unconstitutional policies, corporate welfare, amnesty for illegals, consistent debt ceiling increases, federal control of local functions, and anything else demanded by the dominant moneyed interests.  In return, they receive unlimited campaign support in the form of direct contributions and independent expenditures that are carefully coordinated with their candidates through McConnell’s network of the Chamber, NRSC, and Karl Rove – as outlined by National Journal.

    In comes a grassroots candidate from the country class.  Needless to say, unless they are a billionaire, they struggle to collect small donations from patriotic citizens in order to develop a modicum of legitimacy and grow their name ID with the electorate.  In fact, it is precisely because these candidates support principle over power that they have a difficult time raising money – at least anywhere near the scale of the political class.  There is a clear inverse relationship between principled stances on the issues and raising money.

    The campaign finance “inequality” has been further exacerbated by McCain-Soros campaign finance laws that place upstart candidates at a disadvantage.  They lack a large network of donors, but might know of a handful of patriots who are willing to fully support the candidate.  However, they are hamstrung by caps on individual contributions.

    Challenging the political class in both open seats (or Democrat seats) and incumbent seats would be arduous enough if the only inherent problem was the money gap.  But there are two more challenges: defining of the candidate and ideological lies.

    Defining the Candidates In most races with grassroots challengers, the incumbent enjoys ubiquitous name ID and has been fully defined in the eyes of the voters for years.  As is often the case, the incumbent might have mediocre approval numbers, but given that he is a known quantity, there is no fear that he is a total lunatic. Contrast that to most of the challengers who are starting out with zero name ID and are completely undefined in the minds of voters.  Again, most of these challengers lack the funds to ever pose a threat to the incumbent, but the minute they gain traction, the political class has unlimited funds to define the challenger with their professional hit man opposition attacks. 

    Let’s be clear, some grassroots candidates are better than others, but there is no human being with an impressive background who does not have something in their lives that can be exaggerated or distorted and put into a massive TV buy.

    Remember, the first time most voters are hearing about our candidates is through the prism of the oppo hits, and you know what they say about a first impression.  That is how they can destroy someone out of the gate — with a dehumanization campaign.  Even if they didn’t have the funding advantage it would still be difficult because of the gap in definition.  The establishment can completely destroy upstart insurgent candidates because there is no pre-existing definition in the minds of voters.  We cannot destroy their candidates, rather merely hope to slowly knock them down a few points.  Moreover, we focus on issues; they focus on oppo hits.  Guess which one resonates more with voters?

    Lies, Lies, Lies As the National Journal article noted, McConnell and his lieutenants have learned how to pick the lock.  Unlike moderate incumbents of the past like Dick Lugar, who, more or less, ran on their records, these members take the McCain/Hatch route.  In other words, they lie their way through the primary. Instead of running on support of bailouts, amnesty, corporate welfare, debt ceiling increases, expansion of the federal government, jettisoning social issues, and tweaking Obamacare (things they support privately or even vote for) they use their superior firepower to portray themselves as rocked-rib conservatives and paint their opponents as liberals.  Remember how Mike Simpson ran ads saying he voted to REPEAL the Wall Street bailout and that his opponent was a liberal trial lawyer?  Their cowardly allies do the same thing.  Just look at Jason Hart’s article about OH-14 to understand how all these factors play together.

    Ponder this thought for a moment: political class candidates receive millions of dollars from big government interests precisely because of their support for liberal causes.  Then they turn around and use that money to lie to the voters and sell themselves as the antithesis of their funding sources and their opponents as the epitome of their special interests.

    Headed into the next few weeks, this strategy might pay off.  We pray to God that it doesn’t.

    But one thing is clear: there is no skill, merit, or virtue in what they are doing.  It is nothing but old-fashioned corruption and lies.

    I agree 100%

    Sarah Palin’s not running for Congress in Maryland, Dan Bongino is. And if he wins, she didn’t do anything more than publicize his candidacy and give him a high-profile endorsement which gave him more exposure.

    So what she’s doing is looking for candidates who in her judgement will carry the Reagan banner forward. Even if they face long odds, such as Bongino does in heavily Democrat Maryland, it’s worth it to give them a platform from which to speak.

    Forget winning percentages, etc. Advancing conservatism can happen when we put principled candidates on the ticket who run with honor and integrity.

    The wins will come naturally over time. This is gonna take several election cycles to turn around because we didn’t get where we are now overnight.

    But if we can add 5 Senators and 10 Congressmen in each of the next 3 election cycles, we will hold an awful lot of clout.

    A whole lot of words to say “I hate Sarah Palin”.

    Yesterday in his second hour, Mark Levin went down the various advantages that the “Big Money” has to emily against the TEA Party” through Karl Rove in order to defeat them.

    These techniques include phony TEA Parties, Phony “conservative” radio hosts, and even phony TEA Party candidates who won under that banner but have ingratiated themselves to the McConnells of the GOP.

    So you hate Sarah Palin. So does Obama, and his entire party. But what I ask you is this: What have you done to defeat the marxists lately?

    I take everything that she does and says regarding McCain with a grain of salt, and I cannot hold it against her if he is a fool.

    He brought her on to the national stage and for this she is grateful. I wish that he had learned something from her, but if anything, he has become a water carrier for Obama, which is disgraceful.

    But I do not and can not hold this against Palin. Please understand that I put that in there not to bash her but to acknowledge this loyalty to McCain as a fact, and one which I know is simply “A Bridge Too Far” for some. Personally, I suspect that some who cannot get over it would have found something else to be terminally upset about had she dropped him and endorsed JD Heyworth. Probably would have castigated her for being disloyal!

    Since we now know that both the Charles Gibson and Katie Couric interviews were “splice and dice” jobs meant to make her look as bad as possible, including the “Unanswerable question” about the Bush Doctrine which was composed by Former Senator Sam Nunn, this entire essay is based on inaccuracy.

    And I suspect that the author Rod Dreher and the “Reader Richard” knows this.

    I have no idea if Sarah Palin will ever run for any office again. But she’s done more for trying to wake up Americans about the very real possibility that the country they love is being transformed into something else right before their eyes than almost anyone else has. She has payed a severe price for her willingness to speak out about it instead of playing along and being a “player” in the process, which she has had opportunity to do.

    Instead of sitting on the fainting couch after her remarks on Sunday, pretending to be horrified by her remarks Rod Dreher should save his outrage for the Administration that left 4 men for dead because his Administration has been gun-running to supply “rebels” in Syria in their attempt to overthrow Assad.

    (And yes, I am fully aware that John McCain who she endorsed was the head useful idiot in the effort to sell these Al-Qaeda “rebels” as worthy allies for America)

    Sorry, but this Rod Dreher, along with the others who are supposedly so offended by Sarah Palin had better concentrate on who is ruining our future. It’s not Sarah Palin. Criticize her voice or her TV shows or whatever you want to but please don’t question her patriotism or concern for America. Especially when you publish a letter of “concern” that’s very basis isn’t honest, which relying on 2 interviews that were set-ups and not honest journalism were.

    It could be used in such a sentence as this: “While California is actually a fairly conservative state, there is a huge Puss of Lefties in the Bay area, and then down in Los Angeles”.

    Or “Texas has become a surprising target for the left due to the potential for amnesty dropping millions of Latinos into their lap, along with the huge Puss of Lefties in Austin.

    palin45potus to Ben Ficklin

    It’s great that you think that her political career is over. By your logic, the neo-cons are in complete control of who can have a viable career. That’s more power than I’m willing to give them, but for now, it appears that they call all the shots.

    (I will concede that their stranglehold on the media does allow them broad latitude in the way they promote those they want to promote, and to outright lie about those they wish to destroy. But that’s as much a criticism of the American people who stupidly allow themselves to be lied to again and again and again by the same people who we should have stopped listening to back when we first figured out that we cannot trust anything they say. In Palin’s case, they have been lying about her from the first weekend she was on the scene. This was done by those with a vested interest in Jeb, Hillary AND Obama, each for their own reasons. Palin never stood a chance against such a coordinated attack. Who would?)

    But I must take issue with your cavalier dismissal of her, as though she simply was out-played by a group that was even more devious than she was. If Sarah Palin had gone along with the pathway to power that is standard in DC, she would have met with the so-called “Big Donors” and made sure that they were well taken care of. She’d have perfected the art of double-talk, where she tells one group what they want to hear, but then meets privately with those insiders and a whole new tone is heard. This has not happened with Sarah Palin.

    She in fact met at Newsmax HQ in late 2010, and whatever happened in that meeting, the RINO establishment made clear that taking her down as soon as the 2010 mid-terms was over was job #1 for the GOP. Tucson was perfect, and she was left to be destroyed.

    And in case you missed it, her speech at Indianola made it clear to anyone listening that she was not for sale. The very next business day, Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter went after her on the BOR show, which is really when it was obvious that she was “on the outs” with the GOP.

    I haven’t written her off. Someday, it’s entirely possible that America will not be able to afford the crony-captalism that she detests. When that day comes, she will be well-positioned to show us a different brand of conservatism than the Fox News Boys have been selling us.

    She was right about Libya, and she was right about Syria last fall when Obama wanted to drag us into that civil war, and on the side of Al-Qaeda no less! Read her Op-Ed “Let Allah Sort It Out” and you can see that she understood hat was at stake as well as anyone else in DC. I wasn’t willing to send our troops to fight for al-Qaeda’s takeover of Syria. If the neo-cons wanted that, then I’m glad she has nothing to do with them.

    As long as the most prominent conservative voices in the media are more interested in maintaining their good standing in their snooty social spheres, and won’t stand up for conservatives who are under attack from both the Dems and their lapdog MSM but also the GOPe, then we will continue to see an endless parade of losses.

    I look back at the lack of response by the GOP in defending not just Sarah Palin, but also Miguel Estrada, Alberto Gonzalez, Clarence Thomas, Lt Col Allen West and most recently Sen Ted Cruz when the WW2 Veterans were being barred from the Memorial and no one stood behind him, preferring to let Obama cast him as the bad guy while they jammed Obama-care through.

    Conservatives are not well represented in the media by the so-called “conservative” pundits. They do us more harm than good, and bravo to James DeLong for taking Jonathan Tobin to task.

  • Commentary and Sarah Palin

    04/21/2014 10:38:35 PM PDT · 1 of 15
    A prominent member of the Republican establishment has decided once again to damn Sarah Palin with faint praise.

    In a recent column on Susana Martinez of New Mexico, Jonathan Tobin says: “there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican who dares to emerge on the national political stage.”

    Tobin is a senior online editor at Commentary, so his columns provide a reasonable window into establishment Republican opinion.

    Then he goes on:

    While I’m no fan of Palin’s, the former Alaska governor was subjected to the sort of attacks that would never have been tried against any man, liberal or conservative. That she did not weather this assault with the sort of grace or the wit that might have undermined the effort to brand her as unready for national office is to her discredit, and her subsequent career has been handicapped by her decision to resign her office as well as a bitter tone that has left her a strong fan base but no electoral future. But there’s no denying that the attacks on her were unfair. Unfortunately, Palin’s marginalization has encouraged the political left to think it can do the same to any other Republican woman, something that New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez is just starting to learn.

    Tobin's criticisms are ridiculous. Palin was faced with a well-funded assault designed to use vague ethics laws to attack her repeatedly. As the Progressives know well, mud sticks, so this in itself was seen as useful, and Palin, who was not personally rich, did not have the financial resources to counter a serious campaign.

    So rather than play a game rigged against her that she must lose, Palin changed it by resigning. What does Tobin think she should have done? There is no point in putting the question to Progressives, who attack the resignation because they have no interest in truth, but it is fair to demand that the Tobins provide an answer. Should she have gone down in a morass of personal bankruptcy and fraudulent charges so the conservative establishment could wring its collective hands over the nastiness of the left? (Perhaps this is indeed their view; another Commentary writer recently bemoaned the Koch brothers’ willingness to go toe to toe with Harry Reid.)

    As for the “bitter” tone, what does that mean? Palin expresses anger and firmness, but why is this “bitter”? If the attacks were unfair, why was it wrong to meet them with anger? And why is it wrong to keep on meeting the distortions of the left with firmness and humor? (That Tobin thinks she lacks wit just means he has not seen her speak.) She does not subscribe to one of Commentary’s themes, which is that we are all reasonable people and that the left will eventually be persuaded by the force of our superior logic, so she understands the importance of determination and élan.

    We will see about the electoral future. Palin will do what she does, which is rally the forces of liberty and support good candidates. She will not triangulate or dissemble. The current wisdom of the political class is that this does not result in electoral victories, a conclusion borne out by Obama’s success. But political climates change, and honesty and patriotism may someday come back in style. One would think Commentary, a staunch supporter of Israel, would appreciate Palin’s firmness.

    The final bafflement is that Tobin thinks he can kowtow to the left over its treatment of Palin, but stand up to it when the same weapons are leveled against other women. Or leveled against others who try to escape the liberal plantation, such as Justice Clarence Thomas, or Miguel Estrada, denied a judgeship by the Progressives because he is Hispanic. To abase oneself every time the opposition finds a flaw in one’s champions is a prescription for failure.

    In the end, Tobin and his ilk reveal themselves as snobs, anxious to impress the chattering class Ivy Leaguers of Washington and the coasts by rejecting this hick from Alaska. This makes them easy prey for any leftie who looks down his nose and says of some Republican woman, “She’s not really one of us, you know.”

    So they need to wise up and get in the game. And that game is not beanbag.

    James V DeLong has two degrees from Harvard. He agrees that Palin is not one of us chattering-class Ivy Leaguers; she is better than that.

    This is the woman who the White House wants to put in charge of deciding whether or not you will get any medical care beyond the “blue pill” when it comes time to face your inevitable medical needs as you age.

    To me, she showed exactly how she will prioritize by barring the WW2 Veterans from visiting the Memorial last fall.

    Thankfully, Palin joined Senators Cruz and Lee at those “Barry-cades” to shine the light of truth on this shameful display of Government bullying.

    (Where was her former running-mate that day? Probably making the rounds on the Sunday-Morning yak-fests, denouncing Cruz, Lee and everyone else as “Whacko-Birds” instead of standing up for the Veterans.

    You just can't make this stuff up.

    President Obama just appointed Sylvia Burwell to take over Obamacare, the disastrous beast under which our entire health care system and 1/6 of our nation's economy is forever fundamentally transformed.

    Remember last year when America's war memorials, national parks, patriotic amenities, student White House tours, etc. were shut down because the Obama administration's spending priorities are so out of whack? Americans were told the Federal government didn't have enough of our tax dollars to allow WWII vets to walk across a public sidewalk to visit a statue honoring these heroes. This, during the "shutdown" when crony capitalism, earmarks, and waste and fraud continued to fill the swamp. This, while the first family continued to live elaborately large and some in Congress had the gall to whine that they aren't paid enough. This, while the people's will continued to be arrogantly ignored.

    What a cold and callous bureaucrat it was who'd direct that quite revealing fiasco, an episode over which the Obama Administration never recovered in the court of public opinion.

    Who would do such a thing? Who would punish patriotic Americans? Who sent the email initiating all this?

    The political operative Sylvia Burwell.

    It's Sylvia's stain on the ash heap of history. And along with Sylvia's stain comes her disturbing, punitive priorities as she takes over our health care coverage. Yeah, nothing can go wrong with that.

    You can't make this stuff up.

    01/29/2014 9:45:16 AM PST · 5 of 16
    palin45potus to palin45potus

    Governor Palin via Facebook:

    If you skipped huddling around the TV last night for the State of the Union address because you’ve heard it all before, plus you were just busy with life, well… so did I. Putting the real world on hold to watch the fantasy declaration of “utopia’s-on-it’s-way” just isn’t efficient.

    My truck radio was tuned in though. And driving kids to and from ball games with me negotiating control of the dial allowed me hear what I’d forebodingly anticipated. Later, reading the President’s remarks on my cell phone made sitting on sticky steel bleachers (that exacerbate parents’ sore backs) that much more uncomfortable. It was all confirmation that we HAVE heard it all before – how more government is supposedly the answer. But the extreme hubris and naïveté emanated from that speech was something new and alarming.

    Ronald Reagan said the nine most frightening words in the English language are “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Well last night’s promise to grow even more unaffordable, unsustainable bureaucracy confirms we need rescuing from government like never before.

    Consider all the “help” a bloated bankrupt federal government has given us…
    In an attempt to “fix” our health care system, government has taken away our health insurance and forced us to buy worse plans we don’t want and can’t afford.

    To “stimulate” the economy, government blew a trillion dollars on a failed stimulus scheme that sunk us deeper into such a pile of debt that our great-great-great grandchildren won’t be able to pay it off. And our government still wants to blow more money we don’t have on “investments” that will incur more deficits year after year.

    To “lead” us to energy independence, government throws billions at bankrupt boondoggle green energy gimmicks that conveniently reward campaign donors. Meanwhile, the president stymies development of conventional resources that we actually use and he kills a pipeline that’s guaranteed to provide jobs and reliable energy.

    To “create” jobs, government has created more burdensome regulations and requirements and sat back to watch as a record number of Americans simply quit the workforce and gave up trying to find jobs that government can never create.

    Speaking of which, while claiming to be concerned with job creation for American workers, our government is trying to ram through amnesty, which will result in a flood of foreign workers competing with Americans for the few jobs there are.

    These examples prove that growing government isn’t the answer; rather it’s the problem. It’s tempting to tune out rhetoric like last night’s naive promises that this time will be different, but we must not ignore it! Between the hubris of an executive branch governing by fiat, to the arrogance of believing it can spy on citizens’ communications and unleash the IRS to harass people who happen to disagree with the president, it’s now more important than ever for us to press in and pay attention.

    Why? Because we’re obviously on a dangerous path, but “We the People” don’t have to be “We the Sheeple” and just get shepherded towards a fundamental transformation that’s against America’s will. There’s another way! This nation can shine again with the elbow grease we as individuals can provide! But we mustn’t let a statist-leaning government dull our dedicated efforts. So pay attention. Get involved. Understand the way words are manipulated by politicians who practice to deceive, so that we can DO something about it. For instance, proving he’s immune to irony, the president used the phrase “fairness and equality under the law” at the end of last night’s address. This is the same president who has been arbitrarily amending his signature legislation Obamacare practically every other day to give breaks to his cronies and leave the rest of us without “connections” out in the cold. I guess some of us are less fair and equal under Obama’s laws.

    The last thing we need right now is more “help” from big government. In this mid-term year, we need to send new leadership to D.C. to get government back on our side and off our aching backs.

    Thankfully, November is just around the corner.

    Most of these here attacking Sarah Palin were never, ever gonna vote for her anyways, for one reason or another.

    I’d be shocked if this latest FB posting actually lost more than a handful of voters, because those who against her for this probably don’t like her voice, or where she went to school, or her daughter’s appearance on DWTS, or whatever other reason they have.

    So even though I’m not a big McCain fan, I understand her feeling that loyalty is a virtue, and that’s just how she is.

    It’s amazing how easily the left has been able to pen the Black People in America into their little plantation, where the only acceptable choice for them is to vote Democrat, support Democrat policies even as they destroy the future of their communities and children, and demand nothing less than full-scale HATRED of Republicans.

    And their strongest hatred is for Republican women and minorities, because the success of any of them is a direct threat to their base of support, as well as proof that they don’t have to settle for being a victim.

    “With too many purposefully dividing America on the basis of race and gender, it’s imperative that we who strive for a truly United States, under God, take a stand! Don’t be afraid to call out hypocritical double standards applied to independent Americans who are continually falsely accused of discrimination and intolerance. Playing small and timid in this era of potentially great progress towards American solidarity helps no one.”

    Is that a warning to the GOP who’d rather avoid the malicious charges of racism and sexism that the left plays so deftly?

    NAACP Leader Shows True Colors

    The NAACP’s attacks on Senator Tim Scott illustrate the anger and increased intolerance of the political left. Having falsely staked the claim of “embracing diversity” we see another example of the left’s “tolerant hug” excluding those who do not subscribe to their liberal agenda. It’s not personal. It’s not racist. It’s not mean spirited. It’s COMMON SENSE to NOT subscribe to their failed liberal policies that lead to dependence on an unstable and bankrupt government.

    But here’s another example of how the supposedly tolerant left treats an African American conservative who doesn’t subscribe to their failed liberal agenda:

    Tim Scott was raised by a single mother, started working at age 13, faced challenges through school, and then met a mentor – a local Chick-fil-A operator – who taught him how to “think your way out of poverty.” With that, and strong work ethic, Tim's commonsense conservative roots took hold. Tim became a successful small businessman, Congressman and U.S. Senator. He is an honorable man who judges people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin, and seeks the same for himself.

    With too many purposefully dividing America on the basis of race and gender, it’s imperative that we who strive for a truly United States, under God, take a stand! Don’t be afraid to call out hypocritical double standards applied to independent Americans who are continually falsely accused of discrimination and intolerance. Playing small and timid in this era of potentially great progress towards American solidarity helps no one.

    Take a stand! Help leaders like Tim Scott get re-elected in 2014. We need more strong leaders who, like Tim, are conservative because they’ve learned from life experiences, not poll driven messaging, what works for our great country.

    Support Tim Scott today:

    I have come to the conclusion that while they complain loudly about Obama, it’s simply “playing to the crowd” for fundraising, etc. But secretly, it appears that they are onboard with his various “end-arounds” of the Constitution.

    Basically, they are the dirty cops to the criminal Dems. They get their cut in exchange for looking the other way. And they take note of who is digging around too much, and who is asking the tough questions.

    I trust the Dems to work 24-7 against America. It’s who they are, and have been for a while now.

    What I have learned over the past 3 years, or since the TEA Party was undermined after the 2010 wins, is that the GOP is a partner of the Dems in “Big-Gov, INC” and that they will work together seamlessly if threatened.

  • A sad betrayal of working class Americans

    06/28/2013 9:40:57 AM PDT · 1 of 33
    Please take a look at the article linked below to understand how the amnesty bill the Senate passed yesterday is a sad betrayal of working class Americans of every ethnicity who will see their wages lowered and their upward mobility lowered too. And yet we still do not have a secured border. This Senate-approved amnesty bill rewards lawbreakers and won’t solve any problems – as the CBO report notes that millions of more illegal immigrants will continue to flood the U.S. in coming years.

    Great job, GOP establishment. You’ve just abandoned the Reagan Democrats with this amnesty bill, and we needed them to “enlarge that tent” of which you so often speak. It’s depressing to consider that the House of Representatives is threatening to pass some version of this nonsensical bill in the coming weeks.

    Once again, I’ll point out the obvious to you: it was the loss of working class voters in swing states that cost us the 2012 election, not the Hispanic vote. Legal immigrants respect the rule of law and can see how self-centered a politician must be to fill this amnesty bill with favors, earmarks, and crony capitalists’ pork, and call it good. You disrespect Hispanics with your assumption that they desire ignoring the rule of law.

    Folks like me are barely hanging on to our enlistment papers in any political party – and it’s precisely because flip-flopping political actions like amnesty force us to ask how much more bull from both the elephants in the Republican Party and the jackasses in the Democrat Party we have to swallow before these political machines totally abandon the average commonsense hardworking American. Now we turn to watch the House. If they bless this new “bi-partisan” hyper-partisan devastating plan for amnesty, we’ll know that both private political parties have finally turned their backs on us. It will then be time to show our parties’ hierarchies what we think of being members of either one of these out-of-touch, arrogant, and dysfunctional political machines.

    It makes my blood boil to think back on all the dastardly antics that the GOP elites pulled to block her from running in 2012.

    I’d feel differently had Romney treated her and us like we were valued by his election staff. Instead, we were treated like lepers, and he lost the most winnable election in quite a few decades.

    And to rub salt in the wounds, since the day of the elections the GOP has been navel-gazing and trying to figure out how to re-make themselves as a paler version of the Dem Party rather than the heirs of Ronald Reagan.

    And Sarah Palin was and is the one who can articulate that message. The only other I trust is Sen. Ted Cruz.
