    A Time For Choosing ^ | April 11, 2014 | Isabel Matos
    Curt Clawson has hired a record 25 consultants for his campaign. It’s a lie that he’s an outsider. He’s not a principled Conservative either, something those supporting him claim he is. Just recently Breitbart News contributor Javier Manjarres of Shark Tank wrote a hit piece on Sarah, criticizing her for choosing the wrong Conservative in the race: Sarah Palin Jumps the Gun May Not Have Fully Vetted Recent Endorsee. That is ironic coming from a RINO-infested tank who shilled for Marco Rubio when he was lying about being against amnesty early on. Where was his research and vetting then? Shark...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin fired back against Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday calling him a "silly little man" after he said that he was not interested in invading Alaska. Putin downplayed the value of Alaska during a question-and-answer session in Moscow today, pointing out that it was a cold northern territory. “What would you need Alaska for?” he said, advising Russians "not be overenthusiastic” about the state. “Mr. Putin, such a silly little man on this matter of invading Alaska,” Palin said in a written statement to Breitbart News, pointing out that it was obvious that Russia got...

    Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz threw his support behind T.W. Shannon in Oklahoma's GOP senate primary, The Hill reported. Shannon is a former state House Speaker. This was the first primary endorsement made by Cruz, who has a strong following among tea party-aligned Republicans. The endorsement allows him to honor his pledge not to back insurgents in primaries involving Senate GOP colleagues, The Washington Post reported. Shannon is in an open primary. A special election in November will fill the seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn two years before his term ends in 2016. Cruz plans to attend...

Congressional District 19 candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto recently got the backing of Sarah Palin, who held a fundraiser and sang the candidate's praises on Fox News. Yesterday, Curt Clawson scored the endorsement of Sen. Rand Paul, among the first tea party backed candidates to make it big. "Washington is desperate for outside leadership," Paul said.

"We have a president who doesn't understand or just chooses to disrespect our Constitution," Palin said on Fox News' Cashin In with host Eric Bolling. Obama has unilaterally changed immigration, health care, and welfare laws, among others, according to Palin, and she said that he has sent a message with his actions that an elite crew will run the government as they see fit instead of "We the People." She also said there needs to be "new energy" in government...

    Iraq War veteran Joni Ernst emerged as the Republican frontrunner this week in the race to replace retiring Sen. Tom Harkin (D., Iowa). Ernst, who served as a company commander in Iraq from 2003 to 2004 and is a mother of three, gained a slight advantage over the other four candidates for the GOP Senate nomination in a Suffolk University poll. Ernst has 25 percent support among likely primary goers, followed closely by wealthy businessman Mark Jacobs with 23 percent. The other three candidates received less than 10 percent, while 40 percent are still undecided for the June 3 primary....

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin turned Attorney General Eric Holder’s veiled threat to a congressman back on himself Wednesday, saying his idea about an identification bracelet for gun owners was a notion better left untouched. Specifically, she threw Mr. Holder’s own words to Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert back at him: “Eric, ‘You don’t want to go there, buddy,’ ” Mrs. Palin wrote on her Facebook page. Along with the letter, she posted a picture of three bracelets from her personal jewelry collection: One that honors the U.S. military. Another that reads, “Don’t tread on me.” And the third that celebrates...

    GOP Senate candidate Ben Sasse announced Thursday he raised more than $850,000 in the first quarter of the year, significantly more than his main challenger in the race. Sasse made the announcement on Twitter. Another Republican candidate, Shane Osborn, announced earlier this week he raised more than $550,000 in the first quarter of this year. Osborn is a former state Treasurer and Navy pilot and his main rival is Sasse, who serves as president of Midland University. Last week, conservative group FreedomWorks withdrew its endorsement of Osborn and said it would support Sasse instead. They are among four GOP contenders...

    In a major blow to former Republican state Treasurer Shane Osborn’s candidacy for Nebraska Senate, national conservative group FreedomWorks is withdrawing its endorsement and backing his main primary rival, Midland University President Ben Sasse, instead. At issue, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe said in a statement, is the unspoken support Osborn is believed to have from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). “Both Osborn and Sasse are great people, and this was not a decision taken lightly. The question at the heart of this decision is, who would caucus with the Freedom Caucus, and who would fall in line with the...

Is she taking seriously as a politician by the liberal mainstream media? No. But do they still pay attention to her every move? Yes they do. Why is that? Yes, part of it has to do with the fact that there is a certain carnival atmosphere surrounding how she goes about her business. I mean, she knows how to command an audience and entertain.

    Maybe Jimmy Fallon really does want to follow Jay Leno’s tradition of full-political-spectrum comedy. Earlier this week, Fallon ripped Barack Obama for his victory lap on ObamaCare, and last night he invited Sarah Palin to join him in this four-minute mockfest of Obama’s foreign-policy acumen. Palin is a good sport here, joking about the unusual names of her children at one point, but the subtext throughout this is that Palin was smart enough to see through Vladimir Putin — and Obama wasn’t.

Not that the GOP vice presidential candidate would attend a Madonna show, anyway, considering the provocative singer has hung from a neon cross and posed naked for a coffee-table book. That would be like President Bush showing up at a Kanye West show. During the U.S. kickoff of her "Sticky and Sweet" tour at the Meadowlands in New Jersey on Saturday, Madonna shouted: "Sarah Palin can't come to my party! Sarah Palin can't come to my show. It's nothing personal," according to the New York Post.

"The comparisons are outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time,'' Mr Bounds said in a statement, reported by Fox News.

John McCain isn't even particularly far to the right, which one might think would be a criterion for the left before one of them would defecate all over Godwin's Law. But that isn't the criterion at all. All you have to do is stand in their way. In the 1960s, centrist liberals were treated by the hard left with savagery. Before that, it was the Trotskyites whose "names were named." The left will turn viciously on whoever opposes them. In some nations, it gets really bloody. In America, the left—including...

    Will Sarah Palin run against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election? No, it’s safe to say that she likely won’t. Though, as she said herself when asked, “never say never.” She followed the statement up by adding, “I don’t have a team of people, you know, getting out there doing these poll-tested whatever they do to let you know if you should run or not. I don’t have any of that kind of organization going,” according to The Examiner. While her candidacy would certainly be welcomed by some within the GOP, especially further to the right – including the...

    Sarah Palin said it: The Obama administration's health care plan could create "death panels" that could kill Americans. And people listened and acted, from the U.S. Senate to President Barack Obama. So if you think the former Alaskan governor is irrelevant or doesn't know what she is talking about (and clearly on the death panel comment she didn't), it doesn't really matter. This week, the Senate Finance Committee said it would not include advance care planning consultations in its health care bill. The panel clearly was scared off by Palin's contention and all the white-hot attention it had received, including...
  • Sarah Palin is Right: Obamacare Death Panel Real; Disguised as the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Comm

    Turns out Sarah Palin was right. Obamacare does have Death Panels, and they are currently disguised as the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee. In this week when Obamacare finally turns one day old, the political problems that our economic recovery face have never been on better display. While the stock market makes new highs, even the Fed is acknowledging that this recovery is different. And because it’s different, Wall Street is winning and Main Street is losing. “Although we work through financial markets, our goal is to help Main Street, not Wall Street,” said...
  • SARAH PALIN: PAUL RYAN BUDGET 'A JOKE'

    Are you kidding? You’d think one who is representing the mighty Badgers, who made it to the Final Four based on sacrificial work ethic and discipline that obviously pays off in the end, he who represents the great state of Wisconsin that hosts this underdog celebrated college basketball team, would understand that future success depends on hard work and sacrifices. The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke. Palin said that the budget that was presented, though,"really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem." "It STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful...

    When it comes to women in the White House, Sarah Palin takes the cake in Americans’ eyes, a new poll found. The Economist/YouGov poll asked participants which female candidate — other than Hillary Clinton — they’d like to see run for the high office. Mrs. Palin won 9 percent of the vote, Breitbart reported. She was followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice, at 8 percent each. Almost two-thirds of respondents said America was more than ready to elect a woman to president.

    Politics 03.29.14 Meet Madison Rising, the Band Behind Sarah Palin's New Theme Song They're like Creed, with a little more Constitution.

    You know who talks about Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh far more than Fox News or even Sarah Palin herself? Who jumps on the stupid remarks made by Fox News pundits and broadcasts on every social media site and on our TV sets on a daily basis? That would be us, the liberal media. Whether mainstream or alternative, the liberal media positively loves every dumb tweet, every verbal slip and borderline racist comment made by conservative talk show hosts and political celebrities alike. And guess what? The conservative media, mainstream or even the most bizarre rightwing blog sites, loves each...

    -New York State officials have filed a $79,000 judgment against Tina Fey, alleging that the comedian has failed to carry required workers' compensation insurance, according to court filings. The Workers’ Compensation Board lodged the judgment against Fey last week in State Supreme Court in Manhattan. State records indicate that the 43-year-old entertainer is being dunned for “Failure to Carry Workers’ Comp Ins” from late-2012 through last month. A “Final Notice” regarding the $79,000 debt is addressed to Elizabeth T. Fey at a Manhattan address that, records show, has been the headquarters for the former “Saturday Night Live” star’s production company,...
