Sarah Palin, Fox News split: What´s next
for Alaska´s most famous ex-governor?

Alaska Dispatch, by Craig Medred

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/26/2013 3:55:30 PM

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is out of a job at Fox News, freeing the host of "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" to begin rehab from the long and exhaustive task of lobbing softballs. So the question is, as Van Susteren recovers, what will Mrs. Palin do? The possibilities are endless. Which of these do you think she´ll pick? •Sign on as the official cheerleader for the Palin-Davis Iron Dog snowmachine racing team? •Challenge Democrat Mark Begich for a Senate seat to which she always believed former Gov. Frank Murkowski should have appointed her?

Comments:
Medred is being tongue-in-cheek, of course, but I suspect Palin is perfectly happy being quietly retired in Alaska.

Palin doesn´t retire well. She´s a Type A personality. Fox didn´t do her any favors starting with the first Beck interview where the body between the two language was apparent. Condescension followed by all the Fox regulars. She thought Fox exposure would help her with a Presidential run. One problem. She was too Conservative for Fox to take seriously. Let her get back to the Tea Party Movement where she belongs. We Conservatives love her and a huge fight lies ahead.

Snarky hit piece.

Sarah will appear on the scene just when you least expect her.

I´d much rather be governed by people who can take it or leave it.

No one ever needs to be "fired". Any company can just make things so uncomfortable for an employee or in this case cut the offered salary in a new contract by 70% from the last contract and the employee leaves for what they hope will be greener pastures.

That way everyne saves face and no one is embarrassed. Palin can say she quit and wasn´t fired. Fox is rid of her which offering her 300K down from a million certainly shows they wanted to be. Palin retires in AK? No way.

Sarah Palin is now unfettered in being able to save this nation...from the depths we will have sunk to by 2016.

Remember these four names: Dagny Taggert, John Galt, Hank Reardon and Francisco d´Anconia?

Now mull these four: Sarah Palin, Andrew Breitbart, Glenn Beck and Ted Cruz (or fill in your own favorites for the last two).

Still think this country can´t be saved/recovered? THINK AGAIN!

One of my favorite quotes from she of the servant´s heart (God, family, country) is this one:

"How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it’s about country." --- Sarah Palin

I had never heard of Craig Medred, or, if I had heard of him, he was quickly forgotten.

A quick search expectedly revealed that he is a flaming Progressive Palin hater who, not unlike other wannabees, apparently loves using her name to his own benefit.

As to Sarah Palin, she is still standing despite "friends" and foes. She has done far more good for our country than she will ever receive credit, or even acknowledgment, for doing. And she is not finished yet, much to the distress of those who have tried fervently and falsely to portray her as a quitter.

God bless you and yours, Sarah Palin.
May He keep you safe within His providential care and guidance, and grant you success in accordance with His will.

If I remember correctly, Fox did a number on Beck as well. He doesn´t look like he misses them. Palin is the one of the people the left hates to see or hear from. I love bringing her name up to libs. They make a face and start talking about how stupid she is. Relly, she seems to be getting a lot of attention from the left. Let them have it Sarah.

Gee, it didn´t take long for the Palin hater posters to strike. Must have worked hard to find this particular hate piece.

I´m wondering what all of the Romney loving, Palin hating "conservatives" will do when Palin gets the nomination. Will they vote for her? Or will they sit home because of their pettiness and jealousy and allow Biden or Hillary to become our next idiot President?

Kobe Bryant and a business associate have a running bet on the staying power of the pop stars Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. Bryant, who wears self-discipline like a badge, has long favored the more predictable Perry’s odds, and found in Bieber’s recent tabloid episodes hints of a looming implosion: talent spurned. As he and the associate walked into the dining room at the Four Seasons, in downtown Miami, in late January, the associate, a Belieber, mentioned that Bryant had been giving him a hard time about it for years.

Extension of Health Law
Signup Period Worries Insurers

The Obama administration´s decision to let some consumers enroll in health plans beyond Monday´s deadline sparked concern among insurers and prompted fresh attacks from opponents of the health law. A surge of consumers is expected to hit HealthCare.gov before Monday´s deadline to sign up for insurance and avoid a penalty under the Affordable Care Act. In the past, heavy traffic has stalled the federal site. On Wednesday, U.S. officials said consumers who say they began trying to sign up for health coverage by Monday´s deadline will be allowed to continue after that date and won´t face penalties for remaining uninsured.

Democrats push for new changes
to ObamaCare amid midterm fears
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

Several Democratic senators moved Thursday to "improve" parts of ObamaCare, proposing numerous changes to the law amid concerns that it could cost Democrats House seats and possibly the Senate in November. The proposals came from a half-dozen senators, some of whom are facing reelection in the fall and most of whom represent moderate-to-conservative states. Since Democrats currently control the Senate, the proposals will put Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in an uncomfortable position -- forcing him to decide whether to put the bills to a vote or sideline them, despite the political risks for his party´s incumbents.

Transparency and truth are the fuels that run sophisticated civilizations. Without them, the state grinds to a halt. Lack of trust — not barbarians on the frontier, global warming or cooling, or even epidemics — doomed civilizations of the past, from imperial Rome to the former Soviet Union. The United States can withstand the untruth of a particular presidential administration if the permanent government itself is honest. Dwight Eisenhower lied about the downed U-2 spy plane inside the Soviet Union. Almost nothing Richard Nixon said about Watergate was true. Intelligence reports of vast stockpiles of WMD in Iraq proved as accurate

Does the Ukraine crisis mark the beginning of a new cold war? The answer from President Obama is a firm no. “The United States does not view Europe as a battleground between East and West, nor do we see the situation in Ukraine as a zero-sum game. That’s the kind of thinking that should have ended with the cold war,” he told a Dutch newspaper. The president is partially correct. Unlike the Soviet Union, Russia has neither the intention nor the capability to challenge the entire European order, and it is certainly not mounting a global revolutionary movement. Nevertheless, it is

NEW YORK-- New York state has the most segregated public schools in the nation, with many black and Latino students attending schools with virtually no white classmates, according to a report released Wednesday. The report by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California at Los Angeles looks at enrollment trends from 1989 to 2010.

Republican starlets Rick Perry and Sarah Palin are both known for their personalities, love of guns, sexiness, and moments of TV humiliation, but only one of them is doing something to avoid forever being labelled an idiot. After his intellectual humiliation during the last presidential election cycle — during which he was unable to remember his own policy points — Perry is becoming considerably more wonkish than we’ve previously known him, fashioning himself as something of an elder statesman, in stark contrast to Palin. The Texas governor, a pair of smart-person glasses now permanently attached to his face, has been busy

If his frequent trips to Iowa are any indication, Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has his eyes set on the White House. But there´s just one catch: Cruz was not born in the U.S. So is Cruz even eligible to serve as president? The answer is yes. Here´s why. Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, in 1970. His mother was American and his father was Cuban. Before his birth, Cruz´s parents moved from Houston to Canada to take jobs in the Alberta oil industry. The family returned to Texas in 1974. Although born abroad, Cruz received U.S. citizenship at birth. The reason is because

Forty-six percent disapprove of how Mr. Obama is handling these events, while fewer - 38 percent - approve.

In the space of just a few weeks, both Nate Silver and Ezra Klein have launched brand new websites, which, although imperceptibly different in their core objectives, both promised to overlook the “fundamentally useless” “pundits” that sully the nation’s media and to replace them with the calm explication and modest objectivity that one can only get from the sort of detached, numbers-driven pragmatists who made their names

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

"There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters.

According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s.

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time.

Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings
