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´.

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.

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.

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010.

Martinez and the War on GOP Women

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

Hillary’s glass jaw

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 4:04:29 AM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton and her friends in the media have been testing messages for her expected presidential campaign. The case for her will be built on four pillars: that allegations of her corruption are unfair; that she is highly accomplished; that she is above partisanship; and that she is a woman.

WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

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

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

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?

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

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
