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.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
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,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,
Obama 0 on budget targeting
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

For Obamacare, What Counts As Success?

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

What would a Mitch

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

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'

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

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

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

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.

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.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
