  • Media tries to 'Sarah Palin' Donald Trump

    08/09/2016 10:30:09 AM PDT · by rktman · 35 replies ^ | 8/9/2016 | Mychal Massie
    The media, complicit with elitists in both political parties, are trying to Sarah Palin Donald Trump. Sarah Palin was a rock star when she gained national attention in 2008 as John McCains vice-presidential pick. She articulated the message of We the People clearly and concisely. Her record of accomplishment as governor of Alaska was impeccable, complete with having broken the shackles of Republican cronyism that permeated the Alaskan political landscape like manure on a chicken farm. Palin refused to allow the same people today attacking Donald Trump to craft a message that wasnt hers. The pompous so-called network news cognoscenti...

  • Theres no Trump without Palin: Meghan McCain scolds conservatives for backing Trump

    05/06/2016 11:35:22 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 125 replies
    Donald Trumps coronation as the GOP nominee will present plenty of opportunities for Republican amnesia and short-sightedness. The easiest thing to do, if youre a conservative Republican, is to dismiss Trump as an aberration, as if his candidacy emerged out of a whirlwind. But thats the work of revisionist historians, not honest observers of the last decade of Republican politics. Consider this recent tweet by Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain and now a commentator for Fox News: I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who...

    Donald Trump is sending Sarah Palin, one of his best political surrogates, to the Wyoming Republican State Convention, in an effort to woo delegates to his campaign. On Saturday, Wyoming State Delegates will select the remaining 14 delegates to represent the party in Cleveland. Twelve delegates were already selected at partys county caucuses in March. Three other delegate slots go to the partys national committeeman, national committeewoman, and the chairman of the Wyomings Republican Party. Trump is anxious to stop the flow of delegates to his rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% . In Colorado, Cruz swept all 34 delegates...

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill of the University of Maryland Law School, whom Gwen Ifill has lauded as "my brilliant baby cousin," has written that black women are not buying Sarah Palin's "false claims to feminism" and is portrayed as too perfect: "when women who are privileged present as though they have it all together, it's offensive to black women."

    Two months later, we ran a cover story on Ms. Palin with the tag line "She's One of the Folks." The editor in charge of covers, Bruce Ramsay, said he wanted a more intimate portrait, so we used a closely cropped version of the earlier image. A female staffer noticed that the crop revealed some untended lip and eyebrow hair, but Mr. Ramsay decided to go ahead with the image unaltered, for several reasons. The magazine had a policy of not retouching photos, and Mr. Ramsay wanted the strong eye contact in the image; in any case, the facial hair...

But the latest Federal Election Commission filing indicates that money raised in small contributions by Sarah PAC is going to consultants, speech-writing services, direct-mail appeals, as well as stays by Palin in fancy hotels.

This year, Coulter supports another RINO who cannot win: Donald Trump. Now, Sarah Palin has endorsed this sure loser. Coulter and Palin have thus become the Thelma and Louise of the Republican Party.

    Prominent among the clueless douchebags who thought Rudy Giuliani could be elected president, John Avlon by 2009 was faced with a problem: How could a pro-Obama liberal Republican hireling find work in a political environment where the Tea Party uprising demonstrated that the Charlie Crist collaborationist Vichy wing of the GOP had no natural grassroots constituency? So in 2010, Avlon co-founded the No Labels movement, funded by liberal donors and assigned the mission of helping Democrats destroy the Tea Party. And if Avlons constant smearing of conservatives as winguts damaged the Republican Party, so what? Nobody involved in No Labels...

    The Syracuse Post-Standard ^ | March 15, 2013 | Maggie Haberman and Manu Raju, The Politico
    In January 2009, Sarah Palin had the world on a string. A potential Republican presidential field-clearer for the presidency, every sentence she uttered was news. A Fox News contract awaited her. So did book deals. Four years later, Palin is without a clear option for elected office - or a clear sense she has an interest in any position of real public influence. She never took an active, leadership role in the tea party movement, beyond showing up at a scattered handful of events and talking it up on television. For many Americans, her name is now primarily a punchline...

    Mother Jones ^ | March 16, 2013 | Andy Kroll
    Sarah Palin rocked a packed ballroom here at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday afternoon. The applause was roaring. The hollers many. The atmosphere crackling. In other words: Dog bites man. Palin's speech, if you can call it that, was Palin at her most Palinesque: heavy on one-liners and folksy charm; light on, you know, anything resembling substance and solutions. Here, a sampling of Palin's many zingers: "They talk about rebuilding the party. How about rebuilding the middle class?" "They talk about rebuilding the GOP? How about restoring the trust of the people?" "Let's be clear about...

    February 8, 2013 Nuclear war over Rove's claims to work for Reagan; Gipper biographer says no Paul Bedard The war of words between conservatives and former Bush advisor Karl Rove has gone nuclear, this time over Rove's claim that he worked for Ronald Reagan's 1980 campaign and on a Reagan advisory board. The bottom line: While Rove told The O'Reilly Factor Thursday that he worked for the Gipper, Reagan's acclaimed biographer Craig Shirley says there's no evidence to back Rove up. Worse: In an email Shirley is sending to conservative leaders, he reveals that Rove backed former President Ford in...

    The Washington Post ^ | February 1, 2013 | Erik Wemple
    The writing-off of Sarah Palin began not long after her departure from Fox News hit the newswaves last Friday. The Posts Chris Cillizza wrote on Monday that Palin is now officially gone, at least from the national spotlight. And MSNBCs Lawrence ODonnell bid the failed 2008 vice presidential candidate a self-satisfied adieu, saying that Palin had now lost the slightest connection to political relevance. Vincent Harris, a social-media consultant who helps Republican campaigns, wonders about ODonnells conflict of interest in issuing those words: Hes a cable-news host! I mean, what else is he going to say? Hes speaking for...

    MSNBC's Morning Joe ^ | January 28, 2013 | Drew Katchen
    Former Republican star and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and FOX news ended their partnership on Friday after three years, a source close to Palin told the Real Clear Politics Web site, the Morning Joe panel discussed Palins exit on Monday morning. Sarah Palin represented a time and place in American politics and not 2008 so much as 2010. And that time is passing us very quickly. Party leaders are finally understanding that, Joe Scarborough told the panel. Palin last appeared on Fox on December 19, 2012 when she spoke with the channels Greta Van Susteren about Benghazi and the two...

    A Time For Choosing ^ | December 28, 2012 | Gary P. Jackson
    Just before the Christmas break the Boston Globe published a lengthy postmortem on Mitt Romneys massive failure as a presidential candidate. Between this, and the constant hand-wringing by Geniuses of the GOP, I think we have beaten this dead horse to a pulp, but there was one thing that came out of this article that has me as angry as I have ever been over a politician. Before we get to that, lets step back in time to 2008. Like 2012, the Republican Party didnt exactly put forth an all-star field of candidates for voters to choose from. In the...

    One good thing about President Obamas re-election: It seems to have prompted some sober thinking by Republican Party leaders and allies. Oh sure, theres been some loose talk of secession, but mostly what youve found is top GOP leaders trying to figure out how to broaden the GOPs appeal and shed its reputation for anti-intellectualism while staying true to their conservative values. This is a good thing. One sure way for Republicans to blow it: If Sarah Palin runs for president. You mightve thought Palins political career pretty much ended when she decided not to run for president against a...

    Governor Sarah Palin posed the question Who is running our country? in her latest Facebook note: Who is running our country? Weve got a CIA Director sharing security info with his mistress using an unsecure gmail account. Weve got the delusional Susan Rice blaming the death of an ambassador on a Youtube video. Weve got Iran firing on one of our drones a week before the election. Weve got the White House either ignorant of or covering up all of this. Who is minding the store? Everywhere we look we see the rank incompetence or corruption of the people who...
