Sarah Palin´s Fox return proves
conservative media outlets
don´t care about conservatism

The Week, by Jeb Golinkin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 6/15/2013 5:11:14 AM

N ot long ago, conservatives like myself were thrilled to find out that Fox News, often portrayed as the mouthpiece of the conservative movement, had parted ways with former governor of Alaska (and quitter) Sarah Palin. This was truly a cause for celebration. Those of us devoted to building a conservative movement capable of winning elections had come to view the former governor as the symbol of everything, and I do mean everything, wrong with the modern conservative movement. But now, Roger Ailes has rehired her. And in so doing, Ailes has issued a painful reminder that he cares far more

Comments:
Ailes knows her followers will listen and cheer and her non-followers won´t. That´s pretty much the case with each of the Fox personalities.

The one who is clueless is the author Jeff Go-bumkin. Sarah Palin represents the true conservatives in America. She sees clearly what is wrong with our political leaders and not afraid to call them out. Romney lost because he was not a true conservative and was afraid to call Obama out . He also lost because the election was rigged and the entire federal bureaucracy was in Obama´s back pocket ready to do his bidding. I look forward to hearing more from Palin and less of Jaun Williams.

Exactly #1. When the buffoon stated "quitter", there was no doubt that he is as clueless as he "thinks" Sarah Palin is.

We desperately someone to do the DC what Sarah Palin did to Juneau and the Alaskan government in 2.5 short years!

This guy is anything BUT a Conservative. Just what grave offense did Sarah Palin commit. Seems to me her only sin was to be vilified by the same media that has put the current Dictator "unaccountable to no one" Obama in power. As the RINOs line up for the next election we will see more articles like this.

Oh please...just because Gov. Palin doesn´t live up to your idea of an intellectual, she needs to shut up and sit down? Give me one example when she has been wrong about a conservative issue. It is the "intellectual class" who has gotten us into this mess. Every word they utter is revered not because of its content but because it comes from the "right person." We need more plain speaking people with common sense and the courage of their convictions to speak out.

My reply is: "Speak, Do, Done". IMHO, she speaks, her past ´Dos´ speak for themselves. To me, mean she´s ´earned´ herself a place to ´Do´ for the future. She´s certainly a better influence on our gov´t than the crocks we have consistently seen in this administration (or in Congress for that matter). So I´d rather she have a place to ´Do´ more. Then she can be ´Done´.

But still he watches Fox???

Does one have to do a "google search" with key word "negative" to find an obscure publication with an obscure article writer names Jeb Golinkin? Never heard of the two before.

Romney and Dewherst........how well did they do in the last election????? Surprised there was no mention of Jeb Bush as the ´promised one´.

I sympathize with Golinkin because I´ve been down that road before.

The key point of compromise (with the Conservatism he truly wants to believe in) was revealed when he wrote of the "well-deserved perception: That the conservative movement was a party that rejected education, science, economics, and ideas generally."

Whose education? Whose science? Whose economics and ideas?

When you´re earning graduate degrees in liberal state institutions, you fight to gain respect for beliefs which are dismissed out-of-hand by those who must eventually approve your work to confer your degree. Inevitably, your fight for Conservative ideas takes place in their arena on multiple fronts. It´s easy for conservative battle lines to be compromised by the acceptance of liberal premises and presuppositions as part of the turf rather than the ultimate point of contention.

How ironic that this ideological battleground is the birthing place of RINOs.

Honest reputations as conservative leaders are earned because they assailed the left in graduate school... yet they arrive to power & influence intellectually compromised. With battle-tested confidence in their conservative bona fides, they cease reinforcing their ideological bulwarks and devote themselves to mastering how the game is played in Washington.

That is why Tea Party conservatives would rather support candidates with a simple but uncompromising view of the Constitution than Ivy League candidates with prominent reputations but crumbling foundations.

What does he mean "capable of winning elections"? It was Sarah Palin who helped the Repubs sweep the 2010 midterms. Her imprimatur is golden for candidates. Which makes me think this Golinkin guy is jealous.

The hit piece here on Palin is not justified.

The following can be said about Obama and the Democrat Party:

She simply did not know enough to engage anyone on any matter of substance, and that was a highly damning fact that shaped the modern perception of the Republican Party... Because of Palin´s lack of education on matters of substance, and because so many in the movement embraced her in spite of that utter cluelessness, most voters came to view the party as a movement driven by charismatic but uneducated leaders followed by hordes of hero worshipers too oblivious or uninterested to contemplate the sorts of disaster that might follow if someone like Palin were actually elected.

That is a description of precisely what happened with Obama and those who elected him, but somehow, Golinkin misses the larger danger -- uninformed voters electing a POTUS who has already endangered the USA far beyond what Palin could or would have done.

...haven´t and won´t bother to understand why Sarah left the governor´s office early. if he/they would, they´d know she was being hounded (by both sides´ operatives) and it was costing too much time and state taxpayers´ money to keep responding to the frivolous claims and accusations.

She CARED about that. What other poll-itician does? I´m glad she´s back.....I was just about to give up on FNC.

I hate to say it but I agree. Palin looked wonderful initially, but less so as time went by, and she has been tarnished by all the extras: a daughter who goes on every reality show known to God and man without her Mom saying Whoaah being the least. One of the worst for me is that she never says anything that needs saying in five cogent sentences when she can dance around the subject, with cliche after cliche, for 50 sentences. She is the antithesis of a Mike Huckabee, who says it, says it clearly and makes logical sense. I think Palin will diminish the Fox brand, and I certainly won´t watch/listen to her.

Sarah came to The Woodlands Tx to support Ted Cruz for Senator. She was electrifying. She understands the Tea Party and conservatives better than anyone. The GOP elites favorites Jeb Bush and Chris Christy are boring to look at and to listen to, Sarah is neither. She would make a great President but that isn´t going to happen the way the msm did an Alinsky on her to our great loss.

Ten will get you twenty that this guy is a Jeb Bush supporter. Sarah Palin knows how to fight for what she believes in. That is more than the other potential Republican candidates who somewhere along the line have been relieved of the family jewels. We´re not going to win against the socialists running the Democrat party unless we put up somebody who knows how to fight down and dirty. To those of you who say "Well, I don´t care to win like that", so be it.

I sent this message to the author:

Mr. Golinkin,



Many commonsense conservatives like myself are sick and tired of the powers that be in the Republican Party:


1.Trying to curry favor with media that will always be hostile to conservatism;
2.Telling the Republicans in the trenches whom to vote for;
3.Attempting to make compromise with Democrats in a manner that favors liberal causes;
4.Generally wimping out all over the place.



We don´t see any toughness in the establishment GOP. And when we see some hint of it, the STUPIDITY and HAM-HANDEDNESS of the establishment overwhelm the would-be toughness.



I am fed up with socialism. I am fed up with Obama. I am fed up with a wimpy, stupid, arrogant GOP. Mrs. Palin is not wimpy, not stupid, and not arrogant. She is a normal American with normal family challenges and she stands up for what is right. Sophisticated? Nope. But that is so over-rated. Actually, it is obnoxious. I´ve seen the country-club boys at various state GOP events. They are so fake. SO FAKE!



No, I don´t hate gays. I don´t even own a gun. I don´t hate pro-choice people. I have voted for pro-choice people even though I am pro-life. I am white and live in a black neighborhood. So don´t you dare call me a red neck. I am just sick and tired of Palin-haters. That would be folks like you. Arrogant. Wimpy. Fake. Not at all attractive.

Sincerely,

35 Right On.

Sarah did the right thing for Alaska when she left the governorship. She left a staff and Lt. Gov. in charge that carried out her agenda - without the frivolous lawsuits.

Don´t forget that she took on the established Republican governor, Frank Murkowski, and won, when she became Gov. of Alaska. Both the Rep. and Dem. parties knew she was / is a threat.

She is STILL a threat to their established agendas.

More Power To Her

No Jeb, it´s people like you, Republicans who adopt leftist stances, and vote that way in order to lose by lesser margins, that doesn´t care about conservatism. That´s why I´m proud to declare that I´m not a Republican, though I do vote for them. The majority in this country are conservative, yet both parties shy away from candidates that are proudly conservative. If a genuine, unapologetic conservative were to be nominated, the turnout would be enormous, as it was for Reagan.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers.

Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste.

U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

New grand jury expected to be seated

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
