The Lesson in the
Betrayal of Sarah Palin

American Thinker, by Lloyd Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/19/2013 12:23:00 PM

Rush Limbaugh on his radio show discussed an article which stated that there is no respected voice in the national arena articulating conservatism. Such an advocate for conservatism is crucial to reversing the direction of America as Obama drives us toward socialism while low-info voters gleefully sing Kumbaya in the backseat. Well excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but we had an extraordinary advocate for conservatism, and look what happened to her. Judas on our side betrayed her -- sold her reputation for 30 seconds of fame and favor with the media.

Comments:
Those within the Republican Party who are Social Progressives/Liberals and Fiscal Conservatives were the ones who led the Assault on Sarah Palin´s character and the majority of them were female.

I totally agree. Witnessed the power of her presence myself. The message was always clear and straightforward, and she delivered it was sass and class, never arrogance. I haven´t spoken to my next door neighbor since Palin was defeated by the media, the ugly left (redundant, sorry) and the even uglier moderate Republicans. I sometimes wonder how much worse the loss would have been for Palin´s running mate if she hadn´t been on the ticket with him. We are still for what we let happen to Palin.

The OP says it all. The RINO Republicans entrenched in the leadership of the party were the first to attack Sarah and continued the attacks on her leading up to 2012. They fear genuine conservatism nearly as much as the liberals do.

~~Also completely ignored is Palin´s tremendous charisma, which I witnessed firsthand on numerous occasions. We launched one of our Tea Party Express national bus tours in Searchlight, Nevada -- a huge dust bowl. Palin was our keynote speaker. Twenty-five thousand patriots attended, with many camping out the night before to reserve their spot. Through the windows of our Tea Party Express bus as we arrived, I watched seniors who parked a mile away using walkers to make their way to the event. In all of my 400 Tea Parties and 9 tours across America, no one -- I repeat, no one -- affected audiences like Sarah Palin.~~

Thanks Lloyd!

Ever notice how the Democrats have about
6-8 regular TV advocates, but the Republicans don´t?

That´s what we need.

Can´t rely on radio hosts to "carry the message".

Sarah Palin has that capability. She´s a name they know, and she can get on most programs just like Carville or Begala.

Fiscal responsibility is key, as is job growth in our energy sectors.

Democrats are against both.

The R party was ascendant until FDR and its core philosophy has always been secular progressivism. It has neither fidelity to nor respect for principled conservatism. Crooks like Harding and Nixon, time servers like Taft,
Eisenhower and Ford as well as incompetents like Hoover and the Bushes are mute testament to that reality. Additionally the visceral disrespect for Sarah Palin, from the blue rinse gang, was predictable, given her glam persona.

Never understood WHY Palin was so rejected by our side. I continue to hear disparaging comments about her, and I try to stick up for her but it´s just dismissed out of hand. Even I get bogged down with "She was fantastic, but..." I guess I´m just trying not to be perceived as a dunce in front of who I´m addressing, I falter in my defense of her.
But I notice, Lloyd Marcus and a few others excepted, the same thing happens to most Blacks who cross the line over to conservatism. The Left derides the conservatives for not having so few minorities in our crowds, yet viciously attack anyone of color who dare approach. Seems like the only people barring entrance of Blacks are the Dems. The sign that says "No Blacks Allowed" is posted at the exits of the Dem plantation.

Well and truly spoken. It’s one thing to not endorse a fellow conservative for (whatever reason) but quite another to ridicule or libel them. That tactic is as unbecoming as it is counter-productive. That Sarah Palin is a patriot is hard to deny, and if that is so, what does her critics attacks on her make them? Hmmmm?

What also strikes me about Palin is her humility. It comes forth in her speeches and in her writings. A rare and welcome quality in any politician.

FTA:
Sarah Palin, on behalf of We The People, I wish to thank you for your profile in courage, trumpeting conservatism (God, family, and country).
- Hear, hear. I´ll drink to that. Thanks Lloyd.

The RINOs and their rejection of conservatism is why Republicans lost in 2008 and 2012.....and are likely to not win again for a very long time, if ever. Do you hear that, you "moderates" here and elsewhere, you, who blame conservatives for our losses? Yes, I´m talking to you.

Thanks Lloyd.

My son picked up the phrase ´Caribou Barbee´ and would not let go of the perception that Sarah is stupid. He never listened to her, read her writings,or examined her accomplishments. He would not listen to me. He also never examined Obama´s history.

I told my son that Sarah was the epitomy of a self-made American, rising by her own hard work and merit. Being a bit of an elitist, he could not place her outside the box of going to State College and not an Ivy League institution.

Many of the conservatives at work looked at me with blank expressions when I mentioned her. They had bought the media label, uncontested by the Republican establishment and many conservative pundits, and dismissed her as unserious. It was not until I, as a fairly respected thinker, told them of my support, were some of their eyes opened.

Sarah could have been defended. Obama´s ´War on women´ would have paled compared to a determined ´War on mothers´ campaign that could have been fielded on Sarah´s behalf. Or, what about the ´war on the disadvantaged´ that could have supported Sarah as the mother of Trig. But, as Lloyd points out, there was no one to circle the wagons. In my opinion, the lack of defense was because Sarah was a real threat to the corrupt status quo.

Like most of the commenters here so far, I very much like Mrs Palin. more importantly, I respect her.
The republican party is a ship without a captain or a helmsman. If she were to assume one of those roles I would surely rejoin them. If she got involved with a third party I would give that a good look, too.
Like many people, age has taken its toll on my vocabulary. I dont think as quickly any more and sometimes my frustration gets the best of me. She does not seem to have those problems and she shares many of my values.
I have not given up on her. Not even for a second.

The thing about Sarah that is so fabulous is that she has the common touch. She knows how middle and working class people live and what´s important to them.

I think that´s why both parties are so terrified of her. If she could break through the media wall and speak directly to the American people about what we can do together to fix the mess we´re in, she could be our next President.

That´s why it´s essential to pound away at the elite political and media class by constantly attacking them for their hypocrisy and greed. I think that´s why the elites are terrified of her, if she connected they´d be toast. So they have to tear her down.

I think she´s going into her wilderness years (in her case...literally!). Don´t forget about Churchill, who came back from defeat to save Britain in World War II. Everyone told him he was done, but when the time was right he was there.

#9, many on our side fear the burden of leadership and success, plain and simple. They prefer to lurk in the background occasionally making profound conservative pronouncements, then run back and hide somewhere while the Democrats lead (not where we want to go, but they do at least lead). The majority of the right we see regularly are either opportunists or spineless pussies afraid to fight for what´s right.

OK, let´s be totally open and frank here. When Palin came on the scene, I thought she would be the female Ronald Reagan. Great charisma, passion, conservative principles, love for America, and the ability to electrify a large audience with her public speaking style.

But it wasn´t just the liberal media ambush and the RINO Republican elitists who betrayed her and did her in. The truth is, she effectively removed herself from the public forum. She could have continued to fight and speak in public forums with her typical forceful speeches. She could have challenged her accusers and naysayers. But except for a few minor appearances, she retreated (and without reloading).

While I understand her decision to not drain her family´s financial and emotional reserves, her decision to do her reality TV series was the final surrender. And now her infrequent and tepid appearances on FOX further diminish her relevance.

Too bad, she was a truly great hope. Now who?

The media and the Left will unerringly go for the target they perceive as most dangerous to their designs - Goldwater, Nixon (evil and scheming), Eisenhower, Reagan, W (bumbling dunces). Sarah was no exception. What made the difference was the perception (correct as it turned our) by the Party Establishment that she was a threat to their Status Quo authority. Not only did she get no protection, shelter or defense but party stalwarts openly agreed withe smears the left media had heaped on her. IMO she should blow Begich away and come to the Senate in 2014.

The down & dirty, in-your-face anti-American militant ´60s radicals and their lap-dog media have the national media microphone now, but who can still believe a word they say?!!! Examine the results of the current self-engrandising pols, their failed policies on both foreign & domestic issues of vital national importance, PLUS the widespread decline in morality and civility & fractured American families during their deceitful tenure.

At this point in American history, EVERY American patriot, Every person of faith, EVERY law-abiding American of moral integrity and EVERY responsible citizen who understands & respects the U.S. Constitution & Bill of Rights, ...ALL are targeted & demonized by the left´s bogus propaganda, and *ESPECIALLY anyone as accomplished, articulate & effervescent as Gov. Sarah Palin! Why? Because the Gov. Palins, like the Pres. Reagan´s, remind Americans of why we love living in the USA and why we still embrace that for which it stands!

Such outstanding American leaders remind us of the principles of Liberty which have secured individual freedom throughout the history of this beloved land of Liberty! Reagan & Palin appeared in the political arena and suddenly reminded us of who we Americans really are and of our country´s place in this world as THE beacon of Life & Liberty! They inspired the best in everyone!

Liberty´s old enemies can´t stand such wise & inspirational American leaders and it is now evident the lefty pols will do anything using their now thoroughly corrupted TV/lsm/hollyweird statist cabal to destroy America´s best leaders as they have tried to remove Reagan and Palin from the arena.

In a nutshell, statists are ruthless.

She was, and is, hot.

She had more than the legal number of kids.

She actually worked- at fishing and homemaking.

She did not murder her baby when she found out he was going to be born with Downs.

She gave the best speech against the Establishment since Ronald Reagan.

The crocodiles in McCain´s campaign insured the disaster that followed her selection as running mate.

They let her become set up by the Perky and Charlie Gibson.

Then after the loss, the rotten lowlife copperheads tried to tie the loss around her neck.

She is still by far the best spokesman we could have.

She is not blue-blood Ivy League to-the-manner- born.

Sarah ´16. She will cream the hideous Medusa PIAPS.

I have always thought Sarah Palin would make an excellent president. She is the voice of conservatism, and the establishment could not let that stand. So they teamed up with the left and attempted to destroy her. When she defended herself, they came up with other attacks.

#9´s post reminded me of a photo on Drudge a week or so ago of the WH press corps. All white faces - from the first to criticize the right for their lack of diversity.

I love Sarah Palin. That said, I don´t even know anymore what the Republican party stands for..does anyone?
Watching Boehner negotiate with himself over the tax increase, and now the debt limit..can anyone say Republicans are the party of smaller government, lower taxes and Individual rights?
Face it, everyone in Washington only cares about his own rice bowl..makes no difference what party they claim to belong to.

I agree with Mr. Marcus on all except one point. "Conservative" and "Republican" are not interchangeable terms. Its beyond apparent that the Republican Party is just the "right-wing" of our current facist/socialist/communist one-party system. Sarah Palin, and we whom she represents, are the enemy of "both" political parties.

I think the Republican establishment had her tapped for VP on purpose, in order to neutralize her. She had already bested them in Alaska state politics and she needed to be stopped, so they tied her to the pre-determined loser McCain.

Perhaps like many of us who now realize the futility of trying to "transform" the Republican Party, because there is simply no time, Sarah is laying low and preparing for the coming chaos.

I was so excited when John McCain chose her. I had been following her for a while. I thought that Sarah Palin would cinch the White House for the Republicans. But, she was betrayed by her own party. In the first media interviews, the Democrats in Alaska were full of praise for her. That did change in about 36 hours. What was the Republicans excuse??

#41, I think more would agree with you IF the GOP leaders didn´t act like complete fools. Guys like our Speaker, who are SO experienced, can´t seem to win any battles at all. If Boehner, McConnell, Hatch, etc. are the face of "prepared, competent" some are looking for, no wonder the GOP is dead or dying. No, the establishment Republicans are as threatened by Sarah Palin as they once were of Ronald Reagan. As Mark Levin educates us - make no mistake, they HATED him too.

Sarah Palin is conservatism as it should be. Don´t fool yourselves that the so called RINOs caused Sarah´s defeat. It is and was the turn coat i am a better conservative than you are one issue non flexible in name only republicans who turned on her.
The TEA Party soared with her beliefs and is now in danger of blowing away in the winds like ashes because the flame is reduced to dying coals from intolerance and petty actions like not voting.
Until those type conservatives can allow for a difference in small issues there is no opposition party to progressives and forming a new intolerant one will fail too.

Shame the way Governor Palin was treated,but we really don´t have to go very far to find the folks that destroyed her.I for one don´t have any trouble remembering the people that post here on Lucianne that played into the hands of the commie lovers by cutting her down.

I Love Sarah Palin and would vote FOR her in a heart beat. No matter what office she was running for.

When democrats/liberals/progressives speak ill of Sarah around me, I don´t get into an argument trying to defend her, I simply ask, What didn´t you like about her? After blustering for a few minutes, it usually boils down to ´I didn´t like her voice´, or ´her hair´, or the ´fact that she was a woman´.

Completely esoteric arguments that hopefully made them try to think - I´m sure there were a few headaches after I left.

Her problem with the establishment Republicans is she ran for Alaska governor against an establishment Republican, and won. Kicking his sorry RINO xss out of office.

I also believe Palin could make a comeback, if she chose to do so. My one bit of unsolicited advice would be for her to take voice lessons.

Don´t get me wrong --I love her voice and her Alaska accent. However, one of the great voices of the Right, Rush Limbaugh, realized that he would have to change his vocal delivery to be able to succeed nationwide (ever notice how different Rush´s accent is from his brother David´s?).

Wonderful thread full of heart felt remarks in
Sarah´s favor. But since politics in this country is like a festering swamp, there was simply no place for her. Both sides of the political spectrum are dishonest, self-serving criminals. I too, look forward to a day when such fresh, open, common sense, practicality will be welcomed in Washington, but I´m not holding my breath. God bless Sarah Palin and her family!

I saw Dennis Miller and Bill O´Reilly live in concert during the run up to the GOP primary. O´Reilly flatly predicted Palin wouldn´t run. I thought he was wrong, and that irritated me at the time. She didn´t run, and that disappointed me greatly. I like Sarah Palin a lot. However, I´m not sure we can count on her as a political candidate any more.

When she quit the governor´s job, she opened herself up to more criticism. Then the reality show. Dumb move. And if that weren´t enough, she is now a total dropout. Face it, she is finished with politics. I love her, supported her, but she didn´t give us anything in return. She´s too damaged by the left to ever come back.

I was in her presence 2 times before and after the election.she is the real deal and I would walk over hot coals for her if she runs..and deep down, I think it will happen..someday.
I happened to have rented a house this afternoon to an executive with the Republican Party in my home state..a battleground state.a big one....I cannot wait to sit down and really talk to her.....I also showed her this site on my tablet...she wasn´t aware of it!! I told her that the GOP´ers just might want to peruse sites like this to see what we consevatives really think.

I´m with all of the above, I´ve always been impressed with Sarah Palin. I´ve seen countless of know-it-alls on this forum denigrate her to no end. I disagreed with all of those posters. Sarah resigned to save Alaska money from all of the lawsuits that were filed against her. She was discouraged and therefore resigned in disgust. The Rinos won, now the naysayers are experiencing the fall of this once great country. (No, I did not like her reality series nor Bristol in DWTS)

Sarah Palin hilites the serious vulnerability that exists in the Republican party. The moderates and conservatives just won´t get along. The problem extends all the way up to Republican ´leadership´.

The lefty media that never liked Sarah to begin with, used her to exploit the weakness. The media hilites either Republican conservatives or moderates, and people leave.

Republicans waste their energies on each other when their energies would be better directed at Obama.

Is it any wonder that Obama won in 2008 and 2012?

Republicans need to put aside their differences and work together. They need to put together a coherent message. Most importantly, the need to nullify the lefty media (good luck with that).

The Democrat´s best strategy is a divided Republican party. They will do whatever they can to keep it that way.

Never before has one woman in politics caused such passion. Either you love her or hate her. Maybe we were not ready for such honesty.

I blame McPain for casting her aside after picking her as his VP and then rolling over for Zippy. I will never believe he really wanted to win.

It is our loss. Sarah Baracuda would have made a difference. Look what we have instead.

Quick story-- a friend took an elevator with Sarah Palin on her way to give a speech. He said he looked over at her in the elevator and first thought she was talking to him or herself before realizing she was praying....

And I am sure many of you know that her teleprompter failed at her inaugural speech, she gave that by memory and improv.
If Biden did that they would say he could walk on water.

There is a list on the right and left who I will not forgive for her treatment.

lady gaga at the inaugural..... I really, really do not like these people.....

The Marxist approach to truth is utterly demonic.

For the purposes of this thread, I´ll abstain from weighing in as a yea or nea on the question of Sarah Palin´s strategic benefit or hindrance to the cause of restoring the constitutional republic we all love. I´ll only point out that whoever leads the Opposition in our brave new world will need to have the ´x factor´ necessary to overcome almost unimagineably crushing media antagonism. The last conservative to have that quality, as I see it, was Ronald Reagan. The task facing the ´next Reagan´ is even more daunting given our current landscape. As yet, I don´t know who is up for the challenge.

I agree with the article, and I still like Sarah Palin. I concur with many of the comments here

I knew Palin was marked for defeat when Barbara Bush, a woman whom I had admired, said that Sarah should stay in Alaska. The Republican old guard doesn´t want someone like Sarah Palin.

When I hear Dem women say that "Sarah Palin is a bimbo," I ask them if they have ever been elected governor of a state or if they have ever made a million dollars.

I LOVE Sarah Palin. This country would be immeasurably better right now if she had been president the last four years. But since she chose not to run, I think others are rising to take her place. I think Ted Cruz, the new senator from Texas will be an articulate conservative spokesman. I´m also very hopeful about the new Senator Scott. If we can send some more like Cruz, Lee, Rubio, and Rand Paul to the senate, we may be able to start enlarging the conservative core.

I´m going to say it, I´m ready for a Palin act 2, she would´ve been aces during the fiscal cliff talks. Quitting the governorship was the beginning of her political clout decline but I understand her reasons. I think she needs to start a door to door campaign for senate from the ground up. TV political pundits are a dime a dozen, she can´t differentiate her effectiveness here but leadership definitely. Folks we are in desperate times.

Ann Coulter takes up ‘Mitt
Romney for President’ chant again
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/18/2014 7:03:28 PM     Post Reply
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

How Obama Can Use Executive

He’s been hammered for going around Congress with executive orders. But he’s within his authority—and he should go further on voting and transparency to make government work better. With Congress paralyzed, President Obama has promised to use his “pen and phone” to overcome the ongoing dysfunction and get some work done. And the White House has already acted several times to help improve America’s economy. But such policies, no matter how valuable, will achieve little if we do not fix our broken democracy. Allow me to suggest some ideas for how the president can do just that. First, some historical context. Presidents

Here is a selection of highlights from Friday’s release of documents from the Clinton presidency. The cache is part of a total of about 33,000 pages of presidential records that had been held back from various public records releases because of legal reasons exempting them from disclosure. A Clinton administration memo (page 674) shows a White House that was acutely aware of the first lady’s image problems as officials contemplated how to soften perceptions of Hillary Clinton and how to “build, energize and expand” her natural base. The latest cache of previously withheld Clinton documents includes an

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

That evening, the NBC Nightly News allocated 33 seconds to the revelation while neither ABC’s World News nor the CBS Evening News bothered to mention it. Today (Thursday, April 17), Chelsea Clinton, daughter of a President and First Lady belonging to the media’s preferred party, announced at a Clinton Global Initiative event in New York City that she is pregnant – and the networks broke out the baby showers in

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is "hellbent" on passing amnesty legislation, and other GOP leaders are signaling to donors and lobbyists that they also want to pass legislation this Congress, even though attempting to do so would depress the GOP base and create divisions within the party ahead of 2014´s midterm elections that could give Republicans control of Congress. According to the Wall Street Journal, Boehner told donors at a Las Vegas fundraiser in March that he was "hellbent on getting this done this year." After he met with President Barack Obama at the White House in February, Boehner said that

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
