WaPo, NYT Recruit Palinophobes for Oppo Research (Updated)

Posted by joshpainter on June 9, 2011

Remember when the Associated press assigned eleven of its crack reporters to “fact check” Sarah Palin’s first book Going Rogue? Democrat Party house organ The Washington Post has found a cheaper way to allocate resources in the corrupt media left’s endless pursuit of digging for dirt on the first woman to be the vice presidential candidate of the Republican Party. It is recruiting Palin-hatin’ Post readers to do it for free.

Ryan Kellett, who holds the title of “Interactivity Producer” at WaPo and has his byline under the bold head “Help investigate the Palin e-mails,” makes the pitch:

More than 24,000 e-mail messages sent to and from Sarah Palin during her tenure as Alaska’s governor will be released Friday. Join The Post in digging through them. We are looking for 100 organized and diligent readers who will work alongside Post reporters to analyze, contextualize, and research the e-mails. Think of it as spending some time in our newsroom.

Our hope is that working together, we can efficiently find interesting information and extract new stories that will lead to further investigation. We don’t know what we’ll find, but we want you to be ready and open for the challenge.

You will communicate with us virtually and work in small teams to make light work of reviewing the e-mail threads. Notice the patterns. Identify recipients and senders. Connect specific e-mails to larger themes and events. We’ll give you a sense of what to look out for, but the hope is that your team can tackle the challenge together in a collaborative way that our journalists alone cannot. And in fact, we are selecting just 100 people because we want to make real use of your talents and trust you to use teamwork to your advantage.

[More]

How acute is the epidemic of Palin Derangement Syndrome among the Post partisans? We can practically see Kellett’s words salivating on our computer monitor, so thrilled is he with the prospect of finding juicy tidbits in the governor’s e-mails. We wonder if he also has a thrill running up his leg. Too bad he and his WaPo cohorts could not get as excited about digging into the obscured details of a half-term Senator’s college records and the radical characters he chose to associate with back in the day, and then in the years thereafter. If they had bothered, the republic would likely not have traveled so many miles down the road to ruin.

Wouldn’t it be interesting if some enterprising Paliniste volunteered to go undercover and submitted applications to play in the Post’s pool of Palin plunderers? If you’ve always wanted to be a double agent, or if you would just like to bring a little bit of fairness and balance to WaPo’s witch hunt fishing expedition, just follow the links.

Update: The NY Times is also recruiting would-be muckrakers who are heck-bent on sliming Sarah. Help ’em out, even if it’s not quite with the degree of bloodlust they are looking for .

Did Karl Rove Just Indicate Palin Is The Right Person To Beat Obama In 2012?

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 9, 2011

On Hannity Wednesday, Karl Rove was asked his opinion about President Obama’s election chances and tactics given the state of the economy. He replied;


“The president can’t run for re-election by drawing attention to a great record on the economy.
As a result I believe, he is going to run a deliberate and overwhelmingly negative campaign against the Republican opponent.


The president will use the enormous powers of his office.The  resources he can gather to trash the Republican and to eviscerate them on the stump.


We are going  to have to have a Republican candidate who believes in what they believe, knows why they believe what they believe and can share that with the American public, in a credible and passionate way, and can stand up and  take these blows that are coming their way”


Rove did not give any indication of which candidate he thought would have the required degree of passion, the personal values, the ability to communicate these deeply held values, which are a projection of an inner strength generated by these values. 


Neither did he indicate which prospective Republican candidate has been tempered by attacks by the media, both the Democrats and Republicans and vicious bloggers and hateful members of the public and former colleagues and through all that is still standing strong and has the ability to take the worst President Obama and his team could throw and fight back hard.


Given the vicious campaign to come, driven by a need for the administration to cover their economic failure with personal attacks and their massive resources, which prospective candidate seems to have the qualities of a tempered fighter?


Romney? Pawlenty? who are the favorites of the GOP establishment-do those names conjure up a tested fighter who could take the white hot heat of the media and the administrations attacks? Or does the name Sarah Palin seem to fit the description Karl Rove set out as a prerequisite for a Republican candidate for the hard fought campaign ahead.?


The answer is obvious.

Another “WTF” Obama Foreign Policy Moment

Posted by Ron Devito on June 9, 2011

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

*As many readers have pointed out “WTF” is for “Winning The Future,” President Obama’s re-election campaign slogan.

As Governor I fought the Obama Administration’s plans to cut funds for missile defense in Alaska. So imagine how appalled and surprised I was to read this article by former Clinton CIA Director James Woolsey, appropriately titled “Giving Away the Farm,” concerning President Obama’s latest bizarre actions relating to missile defense.

President Obama wants to give Russia our missile defense secrets because he believes that we can buy their friendship and cooperation with this taxpayer-funded gift. But giving military secrets and technologies to a rival or competitor like Russia is just plain dumb. You can’t buy off Russia. And giving them advanced military technology will not create stability. What happens if Russia gives this technology (or sells it!) to other countries like Iran or China? After all, as Woolsey points out, Russia helped Iran with its missile and nuclear programs. Or what happens if an even more hardline leader comes to power in the Kremlin?

We tried buying off the Kremlin with technologies in the 1970s. That policy was a component of “detente,” and the hope was that if we would share our technologies with them, they would become more peaceful. Things, of course, didn’t work out that way. The Kremlin took western technologies and embarked on a massive military building program. History teaches that peace comes from American military strength. And a central component of that has always been technological superiority. Why would President Obama even dream of giving this away?

Members of Congress saw how foolish President Obama’s gambit was, so they put a section in the defense appropriation bill that specifically forbids the federal government from spending money to share these technologies with the Kremlin. President Obama actually threatened to veto the defense appropriation bill over this section of the law! Fortunately, the House passed the bill with a veto-proof majority, a whopping 322 to 96. Attention now turns to the Senate.

Why is it that President Obama seems to work so hard to give things to our enemies, while at the same time asking friends and allies like Israel to make sacrifices?

During these tough economic times when we are facing massive deficits and a competitive global economy, does President Obama really want to give away technologies that the American taxpayer paid lots of money to develop? Giving away our missile defense secrets won’t make us safer. What it will do is create a situation where we are facing an arms race with ourselves. Russia gets access to our technologies, and we are forced to spend even more money because of the need to stay ahead. Does this make sense to you? Me neither. File this under “WTF”.
