2010-2016 GOV. SARAH PALIN
Our awards are devoted to and recognizing those who did little for the country except tear it apart and prove cranial-rectal dyslexia does exist in 2016 even as far back as 2010. It is also given for Political and Corporate movements of great distinction some which needed to be flushed twice and claims of fresh underwear were not exaggerated.
Though the competition was fierce, one eventually rose to the top by quitting! Falling from grace after suckering millions in fees and pledges while getting ousted by FOX news who can’t stand her anymore, we had a winner.
We chose her because even with all the death wishes raked on her, she is a survivor appearing at a few events for in 2016, thats five years of shrill annoying conversation over nothing, no facts just demeaning rhetoric. She’s older now, losing a bit of that model look, dumber than a rock, actually dumber than titanium, harder than the average rock, insulting as ever, eager to throw her two cents in, to a five dollar ante poker game.
SARAH PALIN IN THE RAW
U.S. veteran and war/combat survivor Chris Mark had some harsh words for GOP pundit Sarah Palin in his post on the website GlobalRiskInfo.com. After Palin’s son was arrested for domestic violence earlier last week, she blamed his dangerous and drunken episode on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Chris Mark is a PTSD survivor, and found Palin’s political ploy to divert her son’s crime very offensive, as have many Americans and American veterans. Mark decided to write this open letter to Palin, which was re-posted Sunday on US UnCut:
Dear Mrs. Palin,
I am a former US Marine and US Navy Officer with a Combat Action Ribbon as well as service connected disabilities. I am also a Republican. I have also served with, and am friends with, dozens of combat veterans who suffer daily from various injuries and wounds to include PTSD.
I recently read your comments related to PTSD in which you attempted to excuse your son’s arrest on domestic abuse charges and firearm charges by referencing his supposed PTSD. Based upon your previous comments I am not surprised that you would choose to use this very serious condition as a political football and, once again, attempt to divert blame from your own family’s abhorrent, violent behavior.
In 2014 your entire family was involved in a late night ‘drunken brawl’ at a party in which Track Palin (the accused domestic abuser) was involved in a bloody fight. While you publicly stated how proud you were at your children’s violent actions, maybe this should have been a sign that Track has a problem.
It is certainly curious that you did not feel the need to reference his supposed PTSD in this situation and instead stated: “…my kids’ defense of family makes my heart soar!” Maybe, instead of encouraging Track’s violence, you should have taken the opportunity to get him help. Maybe, instead of being the result of PTSD, your son was simply trying to uphold the stated Palin family values and “…make your heart soar” by abusing a woman.
PTSD is stigmatized in the media and not well understood by the general public. An estimated 22 veterans commit suicide every day in the United States. This is nearly 8,000 veterans who take their lives every year. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) stated: “Every day in the United States, 22 veterans succumb to suicide — losing their personal battle to invisible wounds of war.” Veterans who have willingly given so much in service to their country should not have to bear the burden of being further stigmatized by your ignorant and foolish statements.
While I do not propose to speak for all veterans, I am clearly not alone in my views regarding your unfortunate statements. They were unfortunate for the many veterans who face further disdain and discrimination based upon your inaccurate and ignorant portrayal of those who suffer with PTSD as well as the causes of the condition.
While I would personally prefer that you simply avoid public life and simply fade away, if you insist on trying to use your “celebrity status” for a cause, please educate yourself on the facts of PTSD and try to help veterans by using your significant influence in a more productive, and less political manner. There are a number of veteran’s organizations to which you can donate time, money and energy to make a difference. Two organizations you may want to consider is the Marine Reconnaissance Foundation and the Recon & Sniper Foundation.
Thank you Chris Mark for service to our country, and publicly speaking out against the odious, repulsive, and ever-ridiculous Sarah Palin. More importantly, thank you for your courage and the great service you continue to give to those suffering with PTSD around the world.
THE SARAH PALIN BRAND
If you can’t say something smart written by someone else, keep quiet because your stupidity and babbling ignorance will flow basically unstructured drivel spiced with yups and yips and the profound rebel “by crackies”. That is the Palin way, lots of nothings.
She was once a very beautiful woman, her aspirations to become a model show in her good well cared for looks, her smile, her hair, her poise, confident posed walk and those wonderful Bancroft glasses. Two and a half years later she is a brand. Well, kind of outdated brand. The speed of light is so much faster than the speed of sound, her words got there after the blinding light.
The Palin Brand and like so many products that hit the market, they rise and then they fall. Some recently compared her to the rebuild of the GM car line and then millions of recalls. GM is going to be manufacturing Buick in China, quite a slap in the face of Buick owners, and hopefully they’ll send her to China where we will expect her to tell them whats wrong with their country. Which will end in her being sent to a gulag fashioned after the Russian ones, the ones she saw when she looked out her window at Siberia.
COMPLAINER - IN - CHIEF
Inspite of her being relegated to a back seat on the political scene after losing, first in the election, second at FOX news, she still manages to outshine most others in the supreme idiot category of stupidity only bowing to Michelle Bachmann, AKA “Bat-Shit Crazy”. Michele who easily outshines Palin in “STUPID” has been quiet lately because of an investigation and her announced retirement from Congress. The house clean up committee noted she should be charged for all this Bat-shit since most of her comments went over like Bat-shit. But back to Palin.
01-16-2016 - So Sarah Palin went on Greta Van Susteren’s show last night and one of the “ questions” was about what she thought of President Obama’s reference to America’s “Sputnik moment" during his State of the Union address.
Just about everyone knows that the phrase "Sputnik moment" refers to America's response to the Soviet launch of the Sputnik satellite and how it galvanized the nation to make the scientific and technological advantages that allowed us to go to the moon and beyond, but not Sarah Palin.
To Palin, the Sputnik moment was a bad thing for America and the fact that President Obama "would aspire Americans to celebrate" it represents a "WTF moment." Why? Because, she says, Sputnik “ Resulted in the inevitable collapse of the Soviet Union."
Of course, the collapse of the Soviet Union had nothing to do with to do with more than just Sputnik (and does Palin really think its collapse was a bad thing?), but the point of President Obama's speech wasn't that we should emulate the Soviet Union -- it was that we should emulate our own history and our own response to Sputnik.
Palin obviously didn’t understand that, which makes for a truly remarkable 45 seconds of television -- quite possibly the stupidest 45 seconds of babbling by a current or former potential presidential candidate in American history till T-RUMP came along.
Occasionally working backstage during a political campaign is a chance to see what really goes on during the war of words, unexplainable phrases, and scads and scads of spin, it’s enough to make a Whirling Dervish dizzy.
The press drove from Tampa to Orlando, West Palm and the official Republican Stop, the Village’s, a huge manufactured city in itself, home community of 75,000 houses designed for seniors that offers thirty-three golf courses and lots of speeches as long as you are a devout Republican, Republican Supporter and having hopes of being buried next to Ronald Reagan former President and the last compassionate Republican.
The crowd living there rarely gets anything from the outside other than a Republican Book signing. This is because the villages are owned by one of the largest supporters of the Republican party.
She took the stage and the screeching of chalk on the blackboard is the only way I would describe her combined with a rhetoric of complaint. All she does is complain, no answers, no solutions, just pick, pick, pick. If you dissect her words, you find a person so self-enamored she is happy saying anything, no matter how stupid or ill-thought just to get attention.
The letters in the word COMPLAINS jiggled around becomes PALIN MOCS! After the second speech of the day, and too far for a cab home I closed my ears. I had enough, I let the others drive, and fella sleep.
THE HOCKEY MOM PREFAB
She is one of the sharpest, most manipulative, and self sufficient individuals on the planet. The Republicans thought they knew her but she is most of all a survivor, opportunist and a lot smarter than some of them. Her only problem is she’s not intellectually intelligent, shoots from the hip, has bad writers and handlers and she pays no attention to them either. And she lies as the Chicago Times found out.
Her statement that she is a hockey mom would not rate high on meters, but rated well with real hockey moms and the comparison to pit bulls backfired as a female pit bull is a bitch. dIn one sense she did get it right. And the hockey MOM taught her daughter well allowing her daughters boyfriend to live with them and oops daughter is pregnant. They spin a fast marriage story to cover the growing embryo.
Her Thoughts on Marijuana June 18, 2010, Palin calls marijuana use by adults a “ Minimal problem". When you have nothing to say that's intelligent, you say nothing and dodge the bullet. In an appearance on Fox Business Sarah Palin expressed a somewhat lenient view on the enforcement of marijuana laws. “I'm not for the legalization of pot," said Palin. But “If somebody’s going to smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at....”
WORST CAMPAIGN IN HISTORY
Analysts and Monday-morning quarterbacks credited McCains loss to one of the worst run campaigns in history. Against his own judgment, Sen. McCain’s handlers pushed him into, Sarah Palin as his running mate. McCain had wanted someone like Joe Lieberman for the middle vote.
Another severe issue of not thinking nor acting on instinct. Lieberman had more flip-flops than Miami Beach during spring break. Nevertheless, voters originally applauded his choice of Palin and her qualifications. They got killed in the election, her smart remarks got her notoriety, and the publics eye and the focus was on her not McCain. I like John but he was overwhelmed. And as things went on, she grew but not with the voters they needed.
In the end mature voters came out saved the day. She walked around McCain without even a fight. On some road stops she completely overshadowed him.
The crowds, admittedly pro right wingers Republican, all these speeches are nothing but preaching to the choir to get them excited, and she did. The chants were Sarah! Sarah!. The loved her and who was that guy on the stand next to her.
Statements were made that she was fully vetted and qualified for the job. In her own words, a pit-bull with lipstick, a soccer mom and Apple Pie America all rolled into a cheerleaders figure and a pageant queens posture. The only thing missing it seems is correct use of the language, knowledge of the country she lives in, and an intelligent thought process. He vetted an idiot on those terms. She claimed to be a “Soccer mom”. Though vetting said otherwise by major papers who sent real reporters to Alaska to get the truth. It was catching up very quickly.
She is very religiously outspoken, way over the top, ad nauseam. She really wears it on the sleeve, and manages to draw the Evangelicals out of the tombs That’s the group that can’t separate religion, government and a bad bowel movement.
Her church, the third one she belongs to, after being asked to leave the last two, in a town of 8,000 are thinkers, actors, and participants in some strange acts on occasion much like the Taliban who put religion ahead of state.
The pastor whose prayer Sarah Palin says helped her to become governor of Alaska founded his ministry with a witch-hunt against a local Kenyan woman who he accused of causing car accidents through demonic spells in Wasilla and at one point had over two hundred followers harassing the woman which drove her out of town. We didn’t make this up.
Oh, those vetters from Chicago really started getting the news. This is stuff you can't make up. See for yourself by searching for Palin - Muthree on Youtube and you personally will thank GOD for making sure she doesn’t get within ten miles of the White House unless they are looking for an upstairs chamber maid. Do not invite her to your church either.
At a speech at the Wasilla Assembly of God on June 8 this year, Mrs. Palin described how: Pastor Thomas Muthee had laid his hands on her when he visited the church as a guest preacher in late 2005, prior to her successful gubernatorial election and his renouncing of the demonic woman and the police forced into shooting a snake, a large Python which was demonic, holding back 200 followers who were going to stone the woman to death.
He managed to get her protected against Voodoo, clearly certified by an African guest minister dancing around her with the results on You Tube. There is even a Voodoo Sarah Palin Doll available on the web. complete with heels and assault rifle if you are afraid of Wolves in your neighborhood. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2008/09/pastor-muthee-a/
THE REAL TRUTH
The real vetting took great investigative work by the Chicago Tribune Staff who separated the wheat from the permafrost chaff. They ran down the real story. More spin than all the Dreidels on Hanukah. Much of what was said about her by herself and even the Senator was minimized
The McCain team must of hired the best resume writers in the world to create her. There is the little truth in her profile, but not as lovely as the pundit spin when it came out. We were going to use the Politico Meter for truth but it hit the false side so much, the needle fell off the gauge.
HER RESUME, CREDITS and DEBITS
AND THE TRUTH
Whoopee, that should appeal to the gun lobby and a few loose cannons floating around. I too was a dues paying member, a proud fellow member of the NRA. In addition, I was a Competitive “ B” Class IPSC Shooter and am a Certified IPSC Combat Range Officer, at some point in my life I also shot Sporting clays, trap, skeet, 3-gun matches and so forth.
Lifetime membership means she paid her dues in one shot, filled out the forms and she gets the magazine. In addition, she’ll now receive discounts on all re-mastered Charlton Heston movies. It certainly adds a lot to any resume, and in Politics it means financial support from the NRA, one of if not the strongest lobby groups in Washington.
EXTERMINATOR of WOLVES
I understand cultural difference. Alaskans are frontier-minded survivalists. They hunt, on foot and watch the Alaskans or Discovery channel. As governor she can shoot Wolves after a chase from a Helicopter or Light aircraft. So could I, after you have nearly run them to death. Wolves run down and exhausted by chopper or light pane are more like sitting ducks.
Having Sarah Palin do a TLC show on Alaska and Conservationism, green thinking and such is like having a forum after asking Hitler, Mussolini, Pol Pot and Stalin to explain crowd control.
Sarah Palin is no friend of any of God's creatures. “Noah would call her a subversive”. Several civic groups in Alaska do not agree with her. Search the web for Palin and Hunting. Wolves don't taste good; their main asset is their coat. So why kill them, just trap them and send them as unrelated breeding stock to Yellowstone.
She will be good for the National Rifle Association, they ate up those fake scenes in My Alaska where she shoots a herded and literally corralled Caribou at 100 yards with a scoped rifle and three coaches, camera men, sound techs and guides. They had set rails to guide the caribou victim into the shoot zone which a blind Neanderthal could hit with a rock. They did everything but paralyze the caribou first, trapped like a rat.
I was hoping in the bear scenes one would charge after her. That’s what would make a show I would watch. That would be reality in Alaska where the real people seek a solace with nature. Not a killing for the camera, not this staged infomercial about herself. She is as fake as the words and scenes she created, thats not Alaska, which is reality, not a reality show. She is a sham to the good freedom loving people of Alaska who deserve better.
SERVED ON A SCHOOL BOARD
She quoted all the fine things she did on the Wasilla school board. She belittled the President as never serving on a school board. Then the truth came out. A Johns Hopkins University study named Wasilla High School as a “Dropout Factory”. Wasilla’s rate was 65 percent in 2006, a number that was much higher than most of the schools in the Mat-Su district. Only 58% of incoming freshman graduated as seniors. The schools there have a terrible graduation rate. No real improvements brought to the schools.
MAYOR OF WASILLA
She made big noise how she managed her city and gained experience. Mayor of a town with the population of my subdivision in Florida. Well, close, Wasilla had 10,256 in 2008. My town, Largo is 72,000 in a larger city of several million. ALASKA's entire population is about 700,000. We have more people in the Tampa Bay area than all of ALASKA and as many unique problems as ALASKA.
Their budget so hailed by Palin as management qualified could be figured on the back of a paper grocery bag with a pencil and no calculator. Yet she claimed she had great management experience running Wasilla. Not what we heard. I would put her up against any of the those fifth graders on TV with nothing more than Monopoly experience. And guaranteed they would smoke her in head to head fifth grade questions.
Family planning… her own daughter, remember this is the school board lady, needed a GED and while laden with child still went on the Alaskan Outback Family Values VP Campaign Tour with the prospective husband Levi holding hands. It made great photo ops but he was smart enough to bail than join the Palin mob. Was he?
They got plenty of money now and he could of had a free ticket. Unfortunately he bailed from the tour and the daughters life after dumping the daughter, indicating he wanted to dump the whole deal. The prospective father of her wedlock child didn't graduate either. BUT he was sleeping in their house and obviously in her daughters bed every night and that’s how babies are made.
FAMILY IN-LAWS VALUES
Family values are a Palin trademark. Which brings us to the In-Laws or is it Out-Laws. Good thing the wedding got called off. The future mother in law, Levi’s Mom, got caught for selling drugs (Oxycontins) and is in Jail. She did not pass GO and those get out of jail cards for free did not work in this town. And lately Levi has become a tell-all of her personal life, which doesn't exactly match her made up resume. There is bad blood there now.
GOVERNORS DON’T QUIT
Alaska politics play rough. But it's also big on lawsuits and she was named in legal battles concerning abuse of power. They started piling up. You see her job as Governor was a lot like her vetting, sooner or later the truth started coming out and she felt she had established her brand and it would solve her problems so she quit as Governor claiming she was doing it for Alaska.
Truthfully no one with brains believed her. She's doing it for money from the book, legal bills and innumerable charges coming from the state legislature. The Alaska legislature went after her for violations of abuse, too many to mention but it is estimated her legal fees exceed a half million dollars so far.
DUMPER or DUMPEE
Dump Alaska, maybe before they dumped her? Now that’s unique set of events and so are the people in Alaska who deserved better than the 1000 dollar checks she handed out from the rebates of the oil tax fund. That explained her popularity. Give everyone a 1000 dollars and even the meth-heads will fill out the forms. They did, meth prices soared days after the checks came out.
Alaskans are incredibly unique people. Survivalists who live by the land, off the land and with the land. Yes, weather is a factor, but the purity of life for some is more rewarding. They are multi-tasking survivalists. And the state does have problems with drugs and booze.
It seems everyone in Alaska loves fishing and hunting which in some ways supports "eating values”. I have no problem with that. Think about it, when two hundred miles of tundra separates you from the nearest Publix Supermarket, that moose in the front yard looks like the meat department's free home delivery both fresh and nicely packaged.
TRUTH vs. FOLKLORE: (LIES)
Chicago Tribune: “That luxury jet was over the top,” Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee, said to loud cheers. “I put it on eBay”. Yes she did. BUT it did not sell. Did not sell three times. I hope eBay got paid for the listings that did not sell. The 23-year-old 10-seat WestWind II was sold in August 2007 for $2.1 million to a Valdez, Alaska, entrepreneur; that’s about $500,000 less than the broker’s asking price, plus commission.
The plane, bought by her Republican predecessor whom she beat in 2006, was listed for sale three times on the San Jose Internet auction giant.
But no one ever met the minimum bid. The plane was listed with an asking price of $2.5 million in 2007. The state had paid just under $2.7 million for it in 2005. Finally, the state turned to an aircraft broker, who sold the jet to an Alaskan businessman for $2.1 million". Only the book keepers know how much the state spent refurbishing and upgrading the aircraft so we will never know how much they really lost.
John McCain, however, took the claim a step further just days after Palin’s speech, suggesting that Palin had not only sold the plane on eBay, but made money on the deal as well. At a campaign stop in Wisconsin on Sept. 5, McCain said, "You know what I enjoyed the most? She took the luxury jet that was acquired by her predecessor and sold it on eBay — and made a profit!”
But that wasn't the case. They lost a ton of money. In addition, that aircraft had the size and range and not only used for the governor but it served to transfer Alaskan prisoners to jail in other parts of the country. This was one of its primary functions. Now the state pays for that trip. They transfer their prisoners to Colorado, as Alaska doesn't have the resources for prisoners. So now they go commercial flights mixed in with you and me and Palin rented a really nicer bigger more expensive bird. Bottom line, more untruths.
Here is a gal that doesn’t know what she reads BUT just wrote a book. Actually some one wrote it for her. Unbelievable that people actually follow her. In Charles Gibson’s interview, she still failed World Politics 101.
In Katie Couric’s interview she failed the entire semester even with Senator Joe Lieberman coaching her. She had no clue as to what the Bush Doctrine was and its quite simple “Attack the bad guys before they attack you”. Not knowing the Busch Doctrines is one thing, not knowing the job of the V.P. is an insult to the party, the people and the whole way we elect folks to the highest offices in the land.
Her answer to “ What is the role of the VP" was astoundingly ignorant. The VP has one role, to take over if anything happens to the President. She replied, “as VP she would go to Congress, and tell them what laws to pass, and direct how things are done”. It got worse, almost embarrassing, for McCain knew at that point his boys blew it. Big time. Get out the recipe books boys, and look up “Cooked Alaskan Goose”.
False statements, cut’s and snips and not even knowing what you read or say really sends up the flares. Like watching repeats, Katie Couric had a classic field day with her. It was not intentional, as Sara would have it, you know the liberal press excuse, all the dumb answers came from one mouth to simple no-trick questions. Except on FOX TV, the station of the Legion of Doom. She simply knew nothing about almost anything.
One question in particular was extremely difficult. What do you read? She had no clue what papers she does read. Couric said “It’s usually printed at the top of the first page or on the cover".
FIRST DUDE - MYSTERY MAN
She is married to “The First Dude”, who for some reason doesn’t speak, BUT, is silent, he doesn’t speak about anything. It was like a gag order backstage. We can just assume who wears the mouth in that house and rightfully so since keeping him quiet prevented the public from learning… wrong. What we do know is he is a commercial fisherman during the season, four or is it five time winner of the ski-machine races across Alaska, a qualified steel worker and also works for BP. And then in January 2010 it, the truth leaked out.
He was more involved in the running of ALASKA then was let on based on over 3000 emails that leaked out after being requested under the information act regulations. The news, Oh my GOD… He was a DEMOCRAT - A Registered Democrat, and also supported the Alaska Independence Party, for seven years, holding office, which would like for Alaska to leave the United States and declare its own sovereignty.
DRESSING THE PART
Somehow her “Soccer, Hockey, Moose Hunter Mom image carefully selected by the couture authorities at the local Wal-Mart look didn’t quite “fit the picture “ of a Vice President. So McCains handlers made sure she had a few accessories to go with her budget thrift shop wardrobe. So they re-created her and the RNC got screwed.
The expenses for clothing etc. included $75,062 spent at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis Minnesota, and $41,850 in St. Louis in early September. Tip of the iceberg, we were clothing a family. So $40,000 for the guy who doesn't talk, the first Dude and it didn’t stop there. The daughters got treated pretty well with $175.00 shoes. I can get at BASS shoe stores six pair for that. I just did, I’m bad on shoes. That wasn't all! So we looked further. We found $22,000 for makeup, $10,000 hair and her handlers got another $20,000. The total after the election kept going up as the bills came in and the real figures are probably never going to pop out.
DORKS OF A FEATHER
The Republican party should get the $10,000 back from her Constitution handlers because in another interview with Nancy Pfotenhauer, who was Senator McCain’s hard hitting blonde attack talking head, Nancy couldn’t define the job of the Vice-President either to Chris Mathews.
TURKEY UPSTAGES TURKEY
I'm being nice, I have trouble digesting her. On the subject of food, no one will ever forget the Thanksgiving Turkey pardon on You Tube. While blabbering and blabbering on, after she pardoned the Alaska turkey for thanksgiving, turkeys were being slaughtered live on screen in the background.
America got to see just how they had be dispatched (Ok be-headed) and bled off hanging upside down in the "Cone of Death". She stayed cool, not listening to her film crew and you hear it on the tape, they were telling her, this was not a good background and she just blabbered on and on and on.
Meanwhile blood and dispatched turkeys all over the frickin place and the gentleman in the background is staring at her like, is this real? His moment of fame with the Governor and he’ll make the six-o-clock news. I’ll show them, two turkeys at a time.
SUMMARY and BRANDING
Sarah was a mistake, really bad judgment in the McCain camp. But the financial awards were incredible. She made the best of it to her credit and a couple million dollars on a book deal she never wrote and even more from the endorsements and speaking engagements. This year she will probably gross 12 -15 million, a fair paycheck for popularity, cunningly smart, a survivor and not afraid to take chances.
Quitting as the Governor takes back all the wonderful words she spoke about her love of Alaska. That was till it didn't suit her anymore. Sarah Palin is for Sarah Palin. She made noise, got the book deal and the millions. For that I applaud her, she outfoxed the wolves on that one, and then shot the other wolves.
Did Sara Palin really write her bio or was it a compilation of events glorified and put together just like her handlers at McCain camp created for her. For someone who could not answer when asked what she reads how did she write that book in three months...? It finally leaked out. The hidden co-author for, “Going Rogue”, is no other than Lynn Vincent, a writer and features editor for World Magazine. Which is no surprise. World Magazine is a right wing wacko Christian Publication. As a religious publication WM makes anything the John Birch Society writes or publishes look pale by comparison. The Taliban wished they had such good writers.
Lynn Vincent has written many articles for that magazine and co-written several books including, Donkey Cons: Sex, Crime and Corruption in the Democratic Party.
POLITIFACT “DEATH PANELS”
Of all the falsehoods and distortions in the political discourse this year, one stood out from the rest. It was a quote from Sarah Palin. She said, “ Seniors and the disabled will have to stand in front of Obama’s Death Panel so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in society, whether they are worthy of health care.” The claim set political debate afire when it was made in August, raising issues from the role of government in health care to the bounds of acceptable political discussion. Sarah Palin posted it on her Facebook page. Seniors including neighbors of mine got scared.
Her assertion, “ That the government would set up boards to determine whether seniors and the disabled were worthy of care spread through newscasts, talk shows, blogs and town hall meetings”.
Still others scratched their heads and said, "Death panels? Really?” The editors of PolitiFact.com, on the Web site of the St. Petersburg Times, who do a fantastic research job, chose it as the inaugural "Lie of the Year." PolitiFact readers overwhelmingly supported the decision. Nearly 5,000 voted in a national poll to name the biggest lie, and 61 percent chose “Death panels" from a field of eight finalists.
THE TEA POT PARTY
Regardless of my input on many occasions to change the name of the party to the TEA POT party, they have steadfastly refused to capitulate. Why not? OK, maybe just the POT party because if people believe her they must be on something stronger than Oxy-Codeine and Excedrin. They used the name "Tea Party” because it denotes the image of the Boston Tea Party. When the founding fathers dumped some fine English Tea (from India) in Boston Harbor. It’s patriotic, symbolic and a courageous act for it’s day. Read the real story... THE REAL TEA PARTY
$100,000.00 FOR WHAT
A HAND JOB?
She was the guest speaker who earned $100,000 dollars to entertain a group of 600 folks who paid $349.00 each (for the Lobster dinner, other fees 200.00 total $321,000) to hear the same old barbs and shots at the President and the administrations problems.
Barnum was so right. Every minute another self centered selfish jerk is born. Her most critical remark, just one in particular was to blast the President of the United States for using a teleprompter.
Well, when you have something intelligent, noteworthy, want to stay on track, often enough, and different from Washington bi-speak to say, a tele-prompter certainly helps. If you say the same thing over, and over again, time after time, and none of it changes, you can use the tried and true HAND-JOB. She only had four topics to remember as investigation proved there was nothing written on her other hand. She makes the hand job proud. She is a hand-job.
THE GREAT TWITTER
She attacked the President of the United States with one of her Nit-twits. She said and we quote with all the elements unchanged. "And Mr.President,50 days later you still no desire 2 speak w BP's CEO re:Americans so adversely impacted?”Kickin a**" or just talkin', it'll help.”
It’s rumored. "Three crypto agents at the CIA were sent to the hospital after collapsing trying to make sense of this gibberish. Their condition is serious”. This woman is as brilliant as a burnt out lightbulb in the middle of a firefly convention. This is the gal who has never had a real open press conference, refuses to answer questions from the press at speaking engagements, talks about a book she never wrote, and is more irritating than chalk on a board. At least you can erase the board. And she's lecturing to the President who is quite vocal on his opinion of the BP president. She should keep her mouth shut unless she is will to use it to soak up oil.
Sarah has a problem with direct questions. She will not take them. When asked she gets the deer headlight syndrome. One of the photog’s I covered her with showed me that.
100,000 Dollars a speech, some critics, thought that was a lot of bread for a standup comic with old jokes especially since it was all about stimulus money being wasted. These were conservatives wasting money because they knew what she was going to say before she said it, lots of good Republican money.
Oh, had they only vetted her out correctly for McCain, he might of been the President. I can see McCain waking and walking night after night, talking to himself saying to himself, ”Why did I listen to these Frickin idiots”.
He lost an election, an opportunity, popularity, public confidence, and a possible tough challenge to his re-election to the Senate. For him alone, this history lesson is similar to Pandoras Box, it should never of been opened or written. Thank his handlers. Pandoras box, in Greek Mythology, was actually a vase not a box, never should of been opened and all the terrible things never would of gotten out.
SARAH FINDS THE TEA POT PARTY
So the Tea Party organizers fueled or spawned by outside thinkers Ron and Rand Paul, Libertarians, John Birchers, Ross Perot, twists it a bit with a modern day bunch of protesters and this is prime time for Political False Gods to drop in and they came in droves fanned on by the FAUX news network patriots,
A few Tea Pot Heads made sense, many looked like the seventies. Her speech could of been written by the crew from Saturday Night Live and the Third Reich. All about blaming the other guys and not forthcoming with solutions, nor answers. It's easy to critique. Der Fuhrer (translated as “da fewer da better”) had a habit of blaming everything on the other guys and found a welcome audience.
I believe the TEA PARTY had merit and in their hearts they mean well for this country. Let’s face it, the corruption in Washington has gone too far. No argument there. But there are limits to bad taste. Clean slogans are OK, cursing on signs, calling the President names you wouldn’t use in your home, and pictures of our President smeared with bad artwork and insinuations about his race, birth, and religion are off bounds. I simply refer to those who do that as scumbags.
The real Republican party knows words alone mean little. Sarah Palin is not that person, she lacks the simple, yet intellectual fortitude and ability to sort out the answers. And she is played them like fools. That will displace anyone really talented to try to make and lead a viable party. Till Donald The T-RUMP came along. But thats another story.
Her mantra "Drill, Baby, Drill" was cute, and a lot of idiots cheered her on at these whistle stops but maybe they should be in Louisiana right now or any of the other gulf states about to be decimated by off shore deepwater drilling. It now represents the biggest disaster in the history of the United States, SPILL, SPILL, SPILL, is what she is all about. Stupid remarks oozes out and then they have to clean up after her. That seems to be all she has to offer.
This will be a long and ongoing project, you will not see the end of her, she will survive, I guarantee it and maybe not a President of anything other than THE NEW ERA OF PALEONTOLOGY , which will be followed by the ERA of PALINTOXOLOGY. Her rhetoric does nothing but poison good minds.
VANITY FAIR CONFIRMS A FEW POINTS
In Vanity Fair, Michael J. Gross, a great writer takes a hard look at Palin's "surreal new world." My friend described her as a very believable fraud energized by greed, and fabulous sized by the media who get bored trying to get an intelligent story out of Washington. Sarah sells, not intelligence but conflict and diversion.
PALIN IS A LOUSY TIPPER
During hundreds of interviews, says Gross, “ heard of Palin giving a generous tip” just once: In front of a large crowd at a chocolate shop in St. Joseph, MI, she slipped the owner a $100 bill “for the staff” and charged it to the GOP. Without an audience, she stiffs the bellhops and maids at the luxury hotels she stays at during her grueling speaking schedule, or at best under-tips. At the celebrity-friendly Hyatt in Wichita, KS, "Palin ranks as the all-time worst tipper."
HER CODE NAME IS NORTH STAR
An important concept in Alaska, the North Star shows up on the state flag, in the state song, and even as a symbol for God. Move over, God, says Gross: "Palin is on the way to making North Star a personal brand." It serves as her code name at hotels, dots her speeches, and identifies shell businesses run by her aides. "If she ever does run for president, [North Star] might well serve as her Secret Service code name.”
SHE HAS A WICKED TEMPER √√√√√
When Gross first heard tales of Palin’s volatile disposition, he says he “ Couldn’t help but wonder if it might be exaggerated.” But "corroborating" stories piled up. One family friend recalled a fight between Palin and her husband, Todd: "They took all the canned goods out of the pantry, then proceeded to throw them at each other. By the time they got done, the stainless-steel fridge looked like it had got shot up with a shotgun."
PALINS FACEBOOK POSTS ARE GHOSTWRITTEN √√√√√ - “YA THINK”
Palin’s most unconventional hire is voice media consultant Rebecca Mansour, a fiercely pro-Palin blog. At the exact time that Palin quietly hired Mansour, Palin’s Facebook page and Twitter feed until then written mostly in a stiff, third-person form — became increasingly provocative and irascible.
SHE DOESN”T HUNT √√√√√ - MOTRE LIES PREVAIL
While much of the persona Palin maintained before she achieved fame was semi accurate some elements were just pure fiction, says Gross. Like this hunter thing for Sarah. A longtime family friend told us that woman has never hunted. The picture of her with the caribou she says she shot? She got out of the RV to pose for a picture. And when Palin made moose chili during an interview with Greta Van Susteren, the friend adds, Todd was calling everyone he knew the day before — Do you got any moose? He was desperate.
THE GABBY SHOOTING
Gabby Giffords had made statements about Palin’s online map that put certain districts in crosshairs indicating that Republicans should target their representatives for defeat in the elections. Her sense of survival and fear brought this to the surface as shown in many interviews.
Gabrielle Giffords was born in Tucson, Arizona, to Gloria Kay Fraser and Spencer J. Giffords. Her father is a first cousin of director Bruce Paltrow, whose daughter is actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Giffords was raised in a mixed religious environment by her Jewish father and Christian Science-practicing mother.
She has identified herself solely with Judaism since 2001, belonging to Congregation Chaverim, a Reform synagogue, in Tucson. She is Arizona’s first Jewish Congresswoman.
THE SHOOTER - Someone has to be blamed" since that's the nature of the rhetoric today. The tragedy of this whole situation is that it could have been avoided. The bizarre actions of the shooter went unheralded after both school officials and police met him on several occasions. No Baker act, no mental health activity originated, simply no help.
When stopped for a traffic infraction shortly before the shooting, he had the right paperwork, no warrants and was issued a warning. Nothing close to rational for what he did. Nothing makes sense.
In the search of his motivation for shooting Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the head and slaughtering random innocents, including a 9-year-old girl, the blame game is in full swing. Ironically, the premier target is Sarah Palin for her stupid and irresponsible statements.
The gun and ammunition used offered no resistance to the purchase. They (GUN) came from Sportsman's Warehouse and (Ammo) Wal-Mart. Again, clues, no follow up and a failed system. The most important part is the thirty round magazines?
This now deleted image from Sarah Palin website will be reason this terrible shooting has huge political ramifications, CNN’s Piers Morgan tweeted, linking to an image of the crosshairs map.
When Palin put crosshairs on a map, pointing to Rep. Gifford and nineteen other Democratic targets, both men and women, she urged followers to “ load and aim for Democrats”. Michael Moore tweeted.
"Congresswoman Giffords in AZ, who is ON Sarah Palin's crosshairs map was shot in the head today. Happy now Sarah?" tweeted actress, comedienne, commentator Kathy Griffin. Keith Olbermann, said Beck and O’Reilly should apologize on air for inspiring the killer and, if they don’t, their sponsors should repudiate them.
THE POPE OF POOP SPEAKS - Roger Ailes Fox News supreme womanizer and pervert noted that maps with images of targets on them are often used in politics.
(Roger was fired from FOX after news of his sexual abuse of female workers at FOX was beyond sustainability)
This is true, they used arrow targets and little mention of guns. The difference is that Palin is all gun. Her entire spiel to the masses is all about lock and load, then reload.
After the shooting, "I told all of our guys, shut up, tone it down, make your argument intellectually," he told Simmons. "You don't have to do it with bombast. Remember Palin works for Fox news.
Up, up, and away and crash. As soon as the event hit the headlines and Sarah's map popped up they dropped it from her Facebook and the web.
Too late, one of her aids, Sarah Palin’s new media aide, Rebecca Mansour, sought to deflect attention from an electoral map Palin posted on her Facebook page last March in an appearance on Tammy Bruce's radio show.
“The images long described as crosshairs or rifle sights were actually just surveyor’s symbols, so Mansour said”. If you wish to put out smart things hire a smart person, If you want to write stupid things hire someone like Rebecca. If you try to spin your way out get your information correct.
To set the record straight and to educate Palin's dumb ass spokes-peep, those are not "Surveyors marks". They can't even get the spin right! They are “Registration Marks” used in lithographic or offset plate printing for the past fifty years.
PALINS RESPONSE TO THE SHOOTING AND BLOOD LIBEL
Is Sarah Palin to blame for this tragedy? No, not directly. The deranged psychopath that went postal does take the blame, but who set the stage or planted the seed. When stirred by idiots like Palin the blame is shared. Is Sarah Palin innocent and devoid of all responsibility. No, she was possibly the most vocal advocates in the political spectrum, she contributed to the aura of violent and intolerant rhetoric that continues to get worse each day and now the seeds of that rhetoric start to sprout.
Sarah Palin in an eight minute infomercial on Facebook gave her response to the shootings in Arizona, slamming those who blamed her gun tooting spiel and her "crosshairs" election map for the shooter's actions. In the eight minutes of drivel in a picturesque setting looking to upstage the President, the wounded, the deceased, and anyone else that takes TV time away from her, she paid homage to the victims of the massacre.
And immediately went into her self indulgent talking points which is expected because she has nothing noble to talk about. She goes on to say: "Journalists and pundits should not manufacture a "blood libel” that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn."
Palin’s choice of words indicates she is blatantly an idiot and her press gal is a super frickin idiot, using the Blood Libel accusation. Blood libel also "blood accusation" refers to a false accusation or claim that religious minorities, usually Jews, murder children to use their blood in certain aspects of their religious rituals and holidays. Historically, these claims have–alongside those of well poisoning and host desecration–been a major theme in European persecution of Jews.
The libels typically allege that Jews require human blood for the baking of matzos for Passover. Many popes have either directly or indirectly condemned the blood accusation, and no pope has ever sanctioned it. Some fanatical Christian groups still are believers.
You have to wonder — given the "terrible meaning and repercussions" of the phrase, not to mention the "terrible irony that Rep. Giffords is Jewish" — if Palin was "familiar with its actual definition."
Sarah Palin's eight minute, "I am Sarah Palin" was just like her TV reality series, all about Palin and less about ALASKA. This was about Palin and accusations. But this time she crossed the line. At a time of mourning, pain and hurt she drew or tried to draw attention to herself. She defended her infamous crosshairs visual. She used words and phrases she probably did not know what she was talking about.
It is obvious she didn't know what the phrase "Blood libel meant". It's also obvious she did not know that Gabby Gifford's was Jewish. Thats the problem, like the loaded gun she is, the mouth opens and stupid uninformed hatred of everything rhetoric come out. It really stands out as the gaff of the century. This was not her day, this day belonged to the victims, their families, and the country.
The Tucson shooting is part of it. In a moment of time when the nation needed healing, her mouth was all Palin which in turn, out of ignorance or stupidity (the juries still out on this one) exasperated the Jewish Community.
The “Blood Libel” Is an affront to Jews”. This was a double whammy… I don’t dislike her anymore, I simply feel sorry for her as she is a total vindictive fraud and fits in well with the GOP policy toward people. GOP, Good Old Prejudice is alive and well.
THE PALIN IMPLOSION
The latest Washington Post/ABC poll found that Sarah Palin had the highest negative numbers among voters who leaned Republican.
Thirty-seven percent of those polled hold an unfavorable view of the former Alaska governor. Fifty-eight percent are favorable. The poll, and they are as common as breathing these days shows Sarah Palin falling from the likes of savvy Republicans.
Could it be the media has fallen out of love with the "Witch of the North" when they realized she has nothing intelligent to say? Today, as the chart shows in this poll she is admired by only fifty-eight percent of Republicans who see her in a favorable light. I wonder if the 58% are defending their first impression or are totally incompetent to make reasonable decisions. It’s a lot lower now.
She's too polarizing and that’s what is tearing the Republican Party apart. She's the Tea Party, the Teat Party and the Tea POT party all rolled into one. She'll tell you what’s wrong, she'll tell you when to breastfeed and that Michele Obama shouldn’t get involved in what you kids eat, and she'll tell you when to smoke a little weed. After all she is for the legalization of Marijuana as a solution. I'm not implying that she smokes weed, her incoherency doesn't need it.
She's Team Palin and little else. Sooner or later the love fest had to end. Many of the party, thought of her as a fresh approach to politics, based on what they were fed. It turned out to be a lot of rhetoric. The truth slipped out about her real past, minuscule unfinished projects and false accolades, the crap written by the McCain team with help from the ghost writers who have all but vanished today.
PALIN VISITS THE HOLY LAND
CNN - Following in the footsteps of several other Republicans considering a presidential bid, Sarah Palin was in Jerusalem Monday to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and take in some local sight-seeing.
Netanyahu asked if SARA wanted to go to the West Bank, she replied; No, I already have my MasterCard with Bank of America. Stunned, he explained where the West Bank was. She replied, “ Can see it from my bedroom window”.
With the bombings and the grief the Israeli’s have sustained, did they really have to have Palin dumped on them too? Politics, or was it a slam against our President Barack Obama who does not do the Hora (An Israeli Dance) when Netanyahu tells him to dance.
SARAH PALIN (™) TRADEMARKED
Alaska's most famous politician/ pageant queen/ hunter/ vice presidential candidate/ and mental buffoon will get her name trademarked after all. Maybe burnt into her forehead, or crib-sheeted into the palm of her hand. Old habits like cheating on tests never go away. Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol are expected to have trademarks on their names approved within three months after re-filing (maybe too many spelling mistakes) and resubmitting their paperwork. Since nobody challenged it, the names “Sarah Palin and Bristol Palin” will be trademarked.
DANCE STUDIO PROTECTIONS
The announcement of the Bristol Palin Dance Studio’s, soon opening in a strip mall near you didn’t come as a shock to anyone. Soon there will be suits against those who use the “Palin Cha-Cha Step” which basically is two steps forward and three steps backward.
Featured at the studios will be a line of dresses Bristol wore on the show “Dancing With the Stars”, especially the bright Orange number she wore which was so, so ugly Vladmier Vanovitsky, a Russian dress designer commented, “ I could see it without TV from the porch of my Dacha in Minsk”. “ Even a Russian peasant wouldn’t be seen in it and the state would confiscate it and make uniforms for prisoners in our gulags”.

PALIN ON IMMIGRATION
Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin actually agrees with liberals on something. “Finally, they have won me over. I actually agree with the liberals’ demanding that this issue of young illegal aliens flooding across our border into horrendous conditions be taken care of. Now!”
Palin’s remarks come after a week of news and debate over the more than 47,000 unaccompanied minors who have been detained crossing the borders since October, a 92% uptick from the same period the year before. The surge in border crossings —which the president’s administration says is motivated by extreme poverty, crime and violence back home—is overwhelming the system and shocking, inhumane conditions have been reported.
WESTERN CONSERVATIVE CONFERENCE - DENVER LOSERS
Right-wing talk radio host Dan Caplis and graduate of Dr. Goebbels journalism school introduced Palin as “one of the most influential political figures of the 21st century,” and as a heroine who has “stood up for you.” (What does this frickin jerk off smoke) Then she spoke....
• “It is nice to be back in the Mile High City, I just think it’s absolutely beautiful. Flying in, you know we’re over your snow-capped hills, I think you call them mountains? I flew in from Alaska” …inferring the real mountains?
• “Remember, we’re in Colorado. Don’t inhale. So the president was here last week, gotten’ his Rocky Mountain high on…” Yet, Palin failed to mention that her home state is also on track to legalize marijuana this November.
• “Busy week for him [Barack Obama] speeding from one scandal to another scandal. it’s vertigo. The Middle East exploding in chaos, time in our open border crisis, Obama has no time to visit the border, but time to shoot some pool, wet his whistle, in real big for those icky photo ops that he really, really hates.”
• “The president disparages these [fat] cats in public. But in private, “ there’s a whole lot of cuddling , purring and tummy tickling with the ones who feeds him.”
• “It’s the same old story today, as government gloats, crony capitalists just eat it up, they’re swallowing’ that largesse.”
• “On both sides of the aisle, they feed off this [supposed "big government" largesse]. Y’know, the rest of us. Today, we’re the ‘forgotten man.’ The ‘forgotten man’ is the hard working middle class who just can’t seem to get a break.” Hmmm, maybe her party’s refusing to raise the minimum wage has something to do with that.
• On Benghazi. President got us into a war with Libya without congressional approval. Our ambassador there begged for security, was ignored then murdered when the consulate was attacked — as predicted by savage Muslim terrorists. Who were angered by an inflammatory anti-Muslim film produced by right-wing Christians.“
• “Considering articles of impeachment is the check making the case for it is not difficult. Difficult is having the moral courage to do what’s right in Congress. It takes guts to hold him accountable. It takes political will. Obama is radically changing the balance of power, setting a wicked dangerous precedent.”
The woman is mentally insufficient for any duties in the White House and her recent affiliation with Donald Trump proves something about the phrase “birds of a feather flock together”. She is a joke and a jokester but never forget this woman is dangerous to anything normal people believe in. Far beyond being out in left or excuse me right field, she’s clearly two blocks from the stadium and two steps from a sanitarium.
When I hear someone telling me how great she is, I step back, and ask or let them tell me about her accomplishments to good government, mankind, the environment, education, nature, and so forth. There are none.
The silence was overpowering, I it was like being in an empty chamber because she is a minus symbol, a term we use to denote someone who complains but never offers solutions. She is the negative problem, not the positive answer.
Remember how former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was going to use her political celebrity to build an army of like-minded politicians via her political action committee? Failed, Palin has officially shut down Sarah PAC as of the end of 2016.
In the 2016 election cycle, Palin’s Sarah PAC spent $830,000 on consultants and just $82,500 in donations to other candidates and $168,000 on travel and lodging expenses during the 2016 election
In the 2010 election cycle the Sarah PAC raised $5.6 million and spent $4.3 million. Just $509,000 of that total — less than 12 percent of total expenditures went to either candidates or political/party committees.
What the closure of Palin's PAC — makes clear is that a) her time as a national leader for Republicans is over and b) Palin's prime interest was never really anything other than promoting her own political brand.
While Palin was, at first, an absolute political phenomenon, it quickly became clear that she was primarily focused on what was good for her, not on what was good for McCain or for the Republican Party more generally. In the aftermath of that 2008 campaign, the evidence began to pile up that Palin’s political ambitions were inextricably linked to her personal interests. Duh, you think?
There was, most prominently, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” — a reality TV series following the machinations of the Palin clan. We saw the herded animal setup shot... disgusting.
There was the release of her books and memoirs written usually by someone else...
2009 “Going Rogue”
2010 “America By Heart”, “Good Tidings and Great Joys:
2013 “Protecting the Heart of Christmas”
Palin's inner circle — such as it ever existed — spent lots and lots of time in the 2009/2010 period insisting that she was focused like a laser on increasing the number of Republicans in Congress, governors' mansions and statehouses. But, following the money indicated was always heavily tilted toward, well, herself.
As the years have gone on and Palin has receded from the national spotlight — she was briefly part of the 2016 campaign when she endorsed Trump — the protestations of her supporters about the real goals of her political action committee have receded. The shuttering of the PAC coupled with the clear signal its spending sends — this was always for and about Palin — should put to rest any talk to the contrary.**
