CBS Affiliate Busted on Voicemail Conspiring Against Senate Candidate Joe Miller

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 31, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

The media has been busted conspiring once again. This time the target is Alaska’s Joe Miller who is running for Senate. Not too many knew who Miller was before he received the support of Governor Palin, and the lamestream media–along with other PDS sufferers–see a loss for him as a win against the Governor. So once again, the media stops at nothing to promote their agenda. This one is particularly troubling, and heads should roll. Nonetheless, we see an example of this truth: “what’s done in the dark will come to the light.”

Big Government reports:

The following voice mail message was inadvertently left on the cell phone of Joe Miller campaign spokesperson Randy DeSoto.

The voices are believed to be those of the news director for CBS Anchorage affiliate KTVA, along with assignment editor Nick McDermott, and other reporters, openly discussing creating, if not fabricating, two stories about Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, Joe Miller.

The following is a transcript of a call recorded after CBS Alaska affiliate KTVA called Joe Miller’s Senate campaign spokesperson. The call failed to disconnect properly. It was later authenticated by McDermott, who sent a text to Randy DeSoto stating, “Damn iPhone… I left you a long message. I thought I hung up. Sorry.”


Clearly the reporters were conspiring to set up some type of smear of Joe Miller. With glee, they even cite a recent controversy over an incident involving the Rand Paul campaign, while discussing how they would spread the story via social media after whatever incident they had in mind came off. It also brings to mind another recent episode that ended with Jerry Brown’s California gubernatorial campaign being caught up in controversy when someone from Brown’s camp called Brown’s opponent, Republican Meg Whitman, a “whore.”

This calls into serious question what type of campaign coverage CBS’ KTVA has been providing Alaskans all along, given their reporters’ willingness to conspire against Miller.

This totally makes me sick to my stomach. Can the public no longer count on the media to fairly report the news? That is the media’s job, is it not? We saw this type of nonsense here and here when, during the 2008 campaign, “Journolisters” went after Governor Palin after Senator McCain tapped her to be his running mate and she was deemed a threat to their victory plans. We saw it in the media’s decision to protect then-candidate Obama from serious scrutiny and downplay his radical associations. We saw it with the conspiracy to depict all Republicans as racists. We see it still–everyday–because the lamestream media has decided that their job is to be the deciding factor in who the public respects and elects. Joe Miller is just their newest target.

May this truth exposed send Alaskans to the polls with a determination to vote for the real Joe Miller, rejecting the Left’s sick agenda–so sick they joke and laugh about child molesters. Their behavior is disgusting, and certainly not befitting those who should be honored to represent our First Amendment rights. The term “sick puppies” comes to mind.

Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent Campaign for John Raese in Charleston WVA

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 30, 2010

Governor Palin and Ted Nugent campaigned for John Raese in Charleston, West Virginia today.  Raese is running against Democrat Governor Manchin to fill the last two years of the Senate seat left by Senator Robert Byrd when he died at age 92 in June.

Gil McClanahan of local 13WOWK  reported on the event and included several photos of the event which can be found here.

More than 2,700 people came to Haddad Riverfront Park in Charleston to see a former Republican Vice-Presidential candidate and a rock legend.

Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent campaigned for Republican senatorial candidate John Raese Saturday afternoon.

Palin took the stage first and told the crowd Raese’s opponent, Gov. Joe Manchin is now trying to distance himself from President Barack Obama. She says Raese would work for West Virginia.

Nugent then told the crowd that he wanted to rid Washington of all the pests. He also praised Raese, calling him his blood brother.

Both spoke for about an hour.

The Associated Press reported:

Sarah Palin says Democrat Joe Manchin is a good governor – but she says West Virginia voters should keep him in the governor’s mansion and out of the U.S. Senate.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska and one-time vice presidential candidate, was in Charleston on Saturday to support Republican John Raese (RAY’-see)’s Senate bid. She drew cheers when she said Manchin was a better fit as governor.

Rocker Ted Nugent also was on hand, entertaining the crowd of several hundred with an electric guitar solo of the national anthem. He told the crowd that democracy is a participatory sport and they can’t afford to stand on the sidelines.

Sarah Palin Robocalls Blanket the Nation Before Mid-Terms

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 30, 2010

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Politico has reported that Governor Palin’s robocall for the Faith and Freedom Coalition is reaching millions of people just before the mid-term elections next week.

Ralph Reed’s Faith & Freedom Coalition is sending a Sarah Palin GOTV robo call to 8.5 million social conservative households this weekend across 56 congressional districts and in 14 states with competitive Senate and gubernatorial races, POLITICO has learned.  The largest call universes are in battleground states Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Washington, Nevada and Wisconsin. 

It’s the same message across the country, but is tailored to each state.

“Hellooo Pennsylvania, this is Sarah Palin urging you to go to the polls on Tuesday or, even better, vote early,” she says in the recording.  “We have some simple choices this year. America needs a return to conservative, common sense and time-tested truths. We need leaders who believe in smaller government, lower taxes, stronger families and a robust, unapologetic national defense.

“The momentum is on our side, but it isn’t over until the polls close, so please go to the polls and vote for the candidates who share your values. Urge your friends and family to vote, too.

“Thank you and God bless you.” 

The third-party outfits doing TV ads have gotten significant attention, but Reed’s group is doing a massive voter-turnout operation that will include millions of mail pieces and voter guides aimed at social conservatives.

Sarah Palin: Beltway Thuggery Is Ruining Our Country

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 30, 2010

From Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

Lisa, are you going to shut down my Facebook page for writing this?

by Sarah Palin on Saturday, October 30, 2010 at 12:20am

Yesterday, Lisa Murkowski’s hired guns threatened radio host Dan Fagan, and more importantly, the station that airs Fagan’s show, with legal action for allegedly illegal “electioneering.” The station, unlike Murkowski, who is flush with millions of dollars from vested corporate interests, does not have a budget for a legal defense. So it did what any small market station would do when threatened by Beltway lawyers charging $500 to $1000 an hour – they pulled Dan Fagan off the air. 

Does all this sound heavy handed? It is. It is an interference with Dan Fagan’s constitutional right to free speech. It is also a shocking indictment against Lisa Murkowski. How low will she go to hold onto power? First, she gets the Division of Elections to change its write-in process – a process that Judge Pfiffner correctly determined had been in place without change for 50 years. She is accepting financial support from federal contractors, an act that is highly questionable and now pending before the FEC. And today, she played her last card. She made it clear that if you disagree with her and encourage others to exercise their civic rights, she’ll take you off the air.  

The concept of “electioneering” involves several issues, but typically refers to campaigning at the polls, which is appropriately banned. Under federal law, it can also mean paying for advertising on broadcast media during a federal election cycle, and it requires disclosures if done by groups and corporations. Fagan used satire to mock Murkowski’s write-in efforts and encouraged Alaskans to run as write-in candidates. That is not illegal. That is free speech.

Individuals like Dan Fagan have a fundamental right to speak their minds without threats from the incumbent Senator from Alaska. It is hard to find a constitutional right Americans cherish more than the right to free speech. This was a right Joe Miller, as a decorated combat veteran – a tank commander tested in battle, was willing to die to defend. Dan Fagan has not always agreed with me, but I will gladly defend his right to speak freely on his radio show, which he has often used to criticize me. In fact, Fagan has actually used his radio show to attack and insult me, my husband, my children, and my family in just about every way possible. He was especially insulting to my son, who left for a war zone to defend Fagan’s right to attack our family. But when I was his governor, I never would have dreamed of threatening his right to free speech. I support him in this fight because this D.C. Beltway thuggery, as exemplified by Lisa Murkowski’s latest threat, is ruining our country. The powers that be want ordinary Americans to sit down and shut up and let the ruling class ride us right off the debt cliff we’re heading towards with Obama, Pelosi, and Reid steering the nation’s car. We can’t let them. Now is the time to put aside our past differences and stand up to the establishment powers.

This whole episode confirms again why we need to elect Joe Miller. Lisa, you can sue me if you want (you won’t be the first). But I will not be intimidated from speaking my mind. Your intimidation just empowered us liberty-loving Alaskans. Are you really that out of touch?

Karl Rove Hypocritically Criticizes Governor Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 29, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

I’m not going to spend a whole lot of time on Karl Rove because he’s so yesterday, it’s ridiculous. He’s had his underwear in a wad since his establishment Republicans have gotten the boot from people like Christine O’Donnell in Delaware, endorsed by Governor Palin. He’s been pouting, whining, and complaining since she shocked the country with her Primary win. Now he’s trashing Governor Palin.

London’s Telegraph reports:

Karl Rove, the former senior adviser to George W Bush, has cast doubt on Sarah Palin’s viability as a White House candidate, questioning if the American people thought she had the “gravitas” for the “most demanding job in the world”.

“With all due candour, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American calculus of ‘that helps me see you in the Oval Office’,” Mr Rove told The Daily Telegraph in an interview.

Rove is a hypocrite, as Josh Painter points out, for after criticizing Governor Palin’s series, he applauds President Obama’s appearance on the Comedy Channel:

Karl Rove applauded Jon Stewart for his interview of President Barack Obama on The Daily Show, saying that “Stewart was questioning from the left,” but that “it was a serious attempt. I mean, it was actually a pretty good interview.”

Again, Karl Rove is a hypocrite whose real problem is jealousy that Governor Palin’s influence has pushed people like him and his establishment buddies to the back burner.

Sheya, writing for C4P, states:

I’m just curious, what does a candidate have to do to “help” Rove see that he or she “fits in the American calculus” of being President? Having multiple states that you call home…does that do it?

Hey, here’s an idea. After Sarah Palin’s Alaska succeeds in showing the American people who Governor Palin really is, contrary to what you and the media have been trying to manipulate them into believing, and her numbers begin climbing upwards, Mitt Romney can do his own series. He can pick one of the following as a title: “Mitt’s Massachusetts,” “Mitt’s Michigan,” “Mitt’s Utah,” or “Mitt’s California.” Or you know maybe it’ll be easier to keep it simple, as a friend suggested, maybe he just calls it “Mitt Romney’s Estates”.

With all due respect to Mr. Rove, I think he’s way past his buy-sell date. It’s no longer 2000. Much has happened since the architect couldn’t get his candidate to win the popular vote even when the climate was all in his favor.

Sarah Palin Campaigns for Joe Miller at His “Change DC” Rally in Anchorage

Governor Palin campaigned for Joe Miller at his “Change DC” rally in Anchorage last night.  Ericka Bolstead at the Anchorage Daily News wrote:

Hundreds of people gathered Thursday night in the Dena’ina Center in downtown Anchorage for the rally, which was headlined by Palin but also featured a number of lower wattage political luminaries appearing by video. At the event, billed as a “Change DC” rally, Miller said the campaign was only five days away from changing the nation’s capital.

“And I’m not talking about Obama’s kind of change,” Miller said.


Those who are criticizing him “represent the way of the past, not the future,” Miller said, and again called on his supporters for their prayers for his victory over Democrat Scott McAdams and Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

“There’s one other thing that we have in our arsenal,” he said. “That thing we have in our arsenal is prayer. Now I want you to pray like you’ve never prayed before.”

Miller upped the ante from some of the other speakers, who had urged those attending the rally to drag at least two of their friends to the polls, too, on Election Day. Miller asked the crowd to persuade 10 people who are on the fence about him to vote.

“Tell your friends to vote,” he said, adding, “and when we change this nation on Nov. 2, you will know that it is Alaska’s destiny to lead this nation into the future.”

Firing up the crowd before Miller’s speech, Palin took a swipe at both of his opponents, Murkowksi in particular: “One is an out-of-touch liberal, and the other happens to be the mayor of Sitka,” she quipped.

Only a few other moments rated as much applause as Palin’s appearance at the rally: a senator from Oklahoma questioning whether climate change is real, and a new commercial from the Miller campaign attacking Murkowski.


Other speakers over video included radio talk show host Lars Larson, former presidential candidate/former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, tea party darling Rep. Michelle Bachman, R-Minn., and Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., whose political action committee is one of Miller’s biggest supporters, also appeared over video.

Much of the rally was emceed by actress Janine Turner, who said that although she played “Maggie” from the iconic Alaska television show, Northern Exposure, Thursday’s event was her first appearance in Alaska. (The cute brunette pixie cut is gone. She’s a platinum blonde now.)

Another Sestak Scandal Surfaces Days Before Nov 2 Election

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 29, 2010

WorldNetDaily has uncovered another scandal involving Joe Sestak, who is running in the Pennsylvania Senate race against Sarah Palin endorsee Pat Toomey.  Governor Palin endorsed Toomey in a Facebook Note on October 19:

Senate races in particular have national significance when it comes to legislation like cap-and-tax. Our Senate is the most prestigious deliberative body in the world. One vote there has consequences extending far beyond that chamber. That’s why “rust belt” and energy producing states must get behind good candidates like John Raese in West Virginia, Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Joe Miller in Alaska, Rand Paul in Kentucky, Sharron Angle in Nevada, John Boozman in Arkansas, and Carly Fiorina in California. Your jobs depend on their ability to hold the line against job-killing legislation. 

People in these states have a clear choice on November 2nd. They can vote for jobs or vote for unemployment.

According to the information detailed by Art Moore in his article and documented with audiotapes, there is another problem with Sestak – his involvement with CAIR. 

Since his election to the House in 2006, Democratic Senate candidate Joe Sestak has fended off strong criticism of his relationship with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a federally designated terrorist co-conspirator shown by FBI evidence to be a front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

Now in a tight race with Republican Pat Toomey for Sen. Arlen Specter’s open seat, a report asserting Sestak was caught in a lie – denying that he was ever in the home of the director of CAIR’s Pennsylvania chapter for a fundraiser on his behalf – has resurfaced.

CAIR Pennsylvania’s Iftekhar Hussain affirmed to WND’s Aaron Klein yesterday in a recorded interview for Klein’s WABC radio show that he hosted a fundraiser for Sestak during the 2006 congressional campaign.

But in an April 9, 2007, radio interview with WPHT’s Dom Giordano in Philadelphia, Sestak told a caller he had never been at the CAIR leader’s home. The interview, along with a recorded excerpt of a November 2006 lecture by Hussain in which the Muslim leader referred to the event, was reported at the time by Pamela Geller on her Atlas Shrugs blog. 


Sestak was the center of controversy last spring when he revealed the Obama administration offered him a position if he would drop out of the Democratic primary to clear the way for the incumbent, Specter. Republicans charged the offer was illegal, but Democrats insisted it was legitimate because the position was unpaid. Sestak went on to defeat Specter in the Democratic Party primary.

CAIR describes itself as a civil-rights group, but FBI evidence points to its origin as a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoot Hamas, and the Justice Department designated it an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror-finance case in U.S. history. The Washington, D.C.-based group, which has more than a dozen former and current leaders with known associations with violent jihad, is suing WND and two investigators behind the best-selling expose “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America”.

In an interview Sunday with Philadelphia’s NBC television affiliate, WCAU, Sestak was asked if NPR’s firing of news analyst Juan Williams last week for expressing fear when he sees people in “Muslim garb” on an airliner is “an example of why taxpayer money should not go to NPR, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.”

“No, it isn’t,” Sestak replied. “I think it was untenable what he said. He said [his fear] was irrational. I understand that. But you need to get over it.”

As WND reported, NPR announced the termination of Williams’ contract after CAIR issued a statement calling for the taxpayer-funded network to take action.


Sestak is now the target of a $1 million ad campaign by the Republican Jewish Coalition that criticizes him for his involvement with CAIR, his support of a civilian trial for Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his backing of partisan congressional declarations against Israel.

Prior to Sestak’s appearance at the Philadelphia CAIR fundraiser, Jewish leaders held a meeting in which they pleaded with him to withdraw from the event. They argued that even leading Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer has described CAIR as an organization “which we know has ties to terrorism.”

Sestak declined and gave a speech to the CAIR supporters in which he lauded the Muslim group for doing “such important and necessary work in a difficult environment to change such perceptions and wrongs – from racial profiling and civil rights to promoting justice and mutual understanding – at a time when it is challenging to be an American-Muslim and pass, for example, through an airport checkpoint.”


Critics also point out Sestak hired a former CAIR staffer, Adeeba al-Zaman, to direct his local office. Al-Zaman was CAIR’s director of communications from April 2005 to September 2006.

Sestak claimed he was not aware of the then 23-year-old Al-Zaman’s background with CAIR when he hired her, although he interviewed her three times.

A new ad against Sestak produced by the newly launched Emergency Committee for Israel asks “Does Congressman Joe Sestak realize Israel is America’s ally?”

The group is governed by a three-person board of Bill Kristol of Fox News and the Weekly Standard; evangelical political activist Gary Bauer; and Rachel Abrams, a writer married to former senior Bush administration official Elliott Abrams.

“Sestak raised money for an anti-Israel organization the FBI called ‘a front-group for Hamas,'” the ad’s narrator says, referring to CAIR. “Sestak signed a letter accusing Israel of ‘collective punishment’ for blockading Hamas in Gaza. Sestak refused to sign a bipartisan letter affirming U.S. support for Israel.

“Call Joe Sestak: Ask him to stand with Israel.”

Last year, Sestak refused to join a pro-Israel letter, signed by 329 members of Congress, urging President Obama to work closely with Israel to advance peace. In March, Sestak also declined to sign another congressional letter that affirmed the U.S. and Israel are “close allies.”

Critics note Sestak did sign a January letter lambasting Israel for using “collective punishment” against Palestinian residents of Gaza. The letter sought to put pressure on Israel to ease up on its blockade of the Hamas regime.
