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´.

If Golinkin hates Sarah so much because she is not conservative enough, he must HATE Shep and Alan Colmes, Kristen Powers and Geraldo.
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.

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying.

Max Blumenthal, like others on the far-Left, jumped on the July 2011 Norwegian massacre of 77 dead and 319 injured to impugn the counter-jihadi right. His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies.

Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change causing fish to

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
