Sarah Raps

Original Article

For Sarah Palin, it has been a long, strange trip. I have always been a fan of hers. She did a terrific job as a citizen activist in Alaska, and then as governor. I thought she acquitted herself well as a vice presidential candidate; among other things, she thrashed Joe Biden in their vice presidential debate. And that was when Biden was in full possession of his (admittedly meager) faculties. But then she went show biz. When she resigned, needlessly, as governor, I wrote here that whatever shot she had to be a presidential contender was gone. Commenters blasted me

I saw this, had to double check to make sure it wasn't Tina Fey or somebody else. I have always liked Sarah, I thought this was odd/weird. Poor woman has been through the mill though, hasn't she?

It is well to remember that Gov. Palin was being bombarded with false and fake ethics complaints in a lawfare scheme. She had to use her own money to defend herself rather than state funds. She and Todd were not wealthy people. So she, in effect, could not afford to stay in office. She did not seem to be getting much help from the GOPe. McCain even undercut her when she was her running mate since she was in it to win it. He obviously was not.

Well she has succumbed to her mockers, Tina Fey, and left the arena of serious discourse. Gifted woman with a good heart. Her transition to reality TV persona is complete. She proly saw the dough her leggy but talentless daughter was pulling in and thought, what the heck. I can't make a living on Fox. If this is what she wants God bless her.

McCain and the “establishment” were horrible to her. As far as everyone else: Like Dan Quayle before her, she was smarter than 99.7% of the people who called her “dumb.” Not to mention more attractive than 99.9% of Democrat women — but that’s easy.

Just to think that this lovely lady might have been our president when McCain went the way of all flesh. I was crushed at the way the media treated her during that brief campaign. That was back when I first saw the MSM with their teeth bared and sharpened and it was then I learned that I was in their cross hairs. Sarah Palin looked really great in the tiny snippet shown in the video.

Sarah is exceptionally talented and one of the few people that I have traveled more than a couple of miles to hear speak. Her biggest mistake in life was hooking up with John McCain but he had a lot of people buffaloed into thinking that he was an American. He was a selfish, bitter, untalented, spiteful jerkweed and I'm being nice because he is dead. She could regain the national stage once people forget about that dreadful campaign against the Lightbringer, how she was treated by Steve Schmidt and how poorly McCain performed.

All respect to Ray Charles and #11; but to talk with a coherent RHYTHM and some catchy rhyme is bugger-it-all harder than it looks. Then if you want it to make sense and contain meaningful insight, you're raising the difficulty level beyond what most people can even see, let alone reach.

Thank you #10. A lot of people have very short memories. Sarah was an outstanding and popular Governor of Alaska. Yes, the biggest mistake she made was getting involved with McCain. The GOPe treated her as badly as the Democrats did. I remember all the Christian Republican leaders we had back then and none of them came to her defense either. I will never criticize her.

It was McCloskey who alighted from the side porch of his palatial $1.15 million manse in the exclusive gated Portland Place neighborhood, rifle in hand, to challenge a mob of “mostly peaceful” protesters who had broken down the gate and were charging up his street to “demonstrate” at the home of that city’s mayor, you see.

We live in a society gripped by a quasi-religious fervor — and obsessed with symbols and irrational fears. Anything that is thought to have the slightest association with ­racism, no matter how attenuated the connection or how innocent the explanation, must be crushed and expunged. The mere presence of a possibly offending word is deemed a threat, whether it is truly offensive or any real people have actually taken ­offense.

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court is leaving in place a decision that rejected environmental groups' challenge to sections of wall the Trump administration is building along the U.S. border with Mexico. The high court on Monday declined to hear an appeal involving construction of 145 miles (233 kilometers) of steel-bollard walls along the border in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. The Center for Biological Diversity, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, Defenders of Wildlife, and the Southwest Environmental Center had challenged a federal law that allows the secretary of Homeland Security to waive any laws necessary to allow the quick construction of border fencing.

Forget the bizarre and evil concept of national original sin that is the malignant idea that America is built upon “systemic racism." America’s true systemic flaw, arising at the time of those miserable progressives of yesteryear and continuing up through the miserable progressives of this rotten year, is what we now call “liberalism.” Oh, it’s not classical liberalism, with its concern for expanding economic and personal rights – you know, individual liberty. The current inverted mutation of liberalism is all about constricting economic and personal rights and forcing individuals into collective boxes where their individuality is subsumed into an easily exploited and manipulated conformist whole.

The recent wave of violence sweeping the nation is reminiscent of the 1970s and ’80s when the Weather Underground, Black Liberation Army, and Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN) engaged in violence, killing about two-dozen and injuring hundreds. Americans were reminded of the carnage two decades later when Bill Clinton dished out pardons and commutations at the end of his presidency. The 42nd president’s 1999 commutation of the sentences of a dozen Puerto Rican FALN terrorists was a total surprise. Bill Clinton reviewed 3,229 clemency petitions requesting commutations since taking office until August 1999. He only approved three.

This month’s protests started out as a black movement against police brutality, but they have a different look now. In many cases, whites have taken over. They apologize for their “white privilege” and, in at least one case, wash black people’s feet to expiate their collective sins. Celebrities, athletes and corporate America followed suit. Portland’s police chief resigned, asking to be replaced by a black man, and the CEO of Chick-Fil-A urged whites to shine the shoes of black people to show a “sense of shame.” But why now?

Conservatives were outraged eight years ago when Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the liberals on the court to uphold Obamacare's individual mandate. His swing almost singlehandedly saved the Affordable Care Act. A few years removed and he made a few better decisions, somewhat appeasing conservatives. But last year he helped kill the census citizenship question. Then, last week, he voted with liberals to reject President Trump's attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The court didn't say that Trump couldn't reverse the program, but that his legal reasoning wasn't up to par.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with his four more liberal colleagues in ruling that the law requiring doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals violates the abortion right the court first announced in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. In two previous abortion cases, Roberts had favored restrictions. The Louisiana law is virtually identical to one in Texas that the court struck down in 2016.

Former president Barack Obama has been "working" on his third memoir for several years. In that time, his wife, nutrition extremist Michelle Obama, has authored and published her own internationally best-selling memoir, Becoming. For whatever reason, Barack appears unable to tolerate his wife's literary success. He has expressed an almost pathological level of annoyance at Michelle's ability to complete a memoir in under two years. It was a sore subject in 2019, when the Atlantic published a (sort of) preview of Obama's forthcoming tome, but with few details beyond the fact that the former president was struggling to keep it under 1,000 pages.
