Trump Will Wait for Governor Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 18, 2011

By Adrienne Ross –

Donald Trump reportedly met with Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry recently, and the two hit it off. Word has it that Trump was impressed with Perry and offered him his posh Palm Beach, Florida club to hold a fundraiser. That said, The Donald would not go so far as to give Perry the endorsement he sought. Why not? He’s waiting for Governor Palin. Newsmax reports:

Trump diplomatically told Perry he would not make an endorsement in the GOP primary race until he knows whether former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin plans to run.

“He told Perry nicely that he probably wouldn’t endorse anybody until she made her intentions known,” the source said.

Read the full article here.

While pundits on the right continue to dismiss the possibility that Governor Palin is running for President, and pundits on the left try to convince themselves that she’s insignificant, reality suggests something totally different. Not only do the media chase her tour bus down the road, hover over her hotel room in helicopters, and follow her around a state fair, someone as influential as Donald Trump waits to make an endorsement until she reveals whether she’ll be in the running. And make no mistake about it, whatever you think of Donald Trump, he is influential, and he’s said recently that the candidates are all reaching out to him. Nonetheless, he’s waiting to see what Governor Palin will do. If that’s what’s called insignificant, it would be interesting to see what would happen if she ever became significant.

Hang in there, Mr. Trump. Soon we’ll all know.

Fox Panel “Christie Thinking of Running” But Surely He’s A Tease/Equivocator/Too Late Like Palin?

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 18, 2011

Here’s WSJ’s Paul Gigot saying not only that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, the so beloved of Ann Coulter, is “thinking about running now, very carefully” and that if he did declare he would vault “straight to the top of the GOP polls”
He then proceeds to tear down Romney and last week’s flavor of the week Rick Perry. That even the country club GOP sees that Romney is not the best candidate and that they are flailing about for an alternative is now obvious

The utter hypocrisy of the GOP establishment shows no capacity for any shame or restraint. When it comes to Palin not having decided one way or the other all the reasons they attack her with magically disappear when it comes to a candidate they promote.

Palin is charged with being a tease, with being a ditherer, with leaving things far too late to be a serious candidate, with the window for fund raising and for registering just about closed. 

She could not possibly run because she doesn’t have any boots on the  ground organization nor is surrounded by a group of experienced campaign professionals.

In what way is a proposed Christie candidacy any different from a proposed Palin one? Leaving aside the historic facts of both Clinton and Reagan entering the lists well past September, Palin has in fact a substantial on the ground organization (which a cursory visit to Original would show) and could instantly raise massive amounts from her enormous following.

The media and the Beltway talking heads just keep digging their own graves faster and faster and their credibility and blatant partisanship is sorely exposed.

If you can bear to watch it – actually, it makes a good case study – here is the latest Beltway double standards on display.

Rob Port: McGinness never really asked Rice “the question”

Posted by joshpainter on September 18, 2011

– by Josh Painter
I have asked a number of writers for several media outlets, including major “conservative” sites, if they even bothered to contact Rice and ask him if McGinness’ allegation is true, and if they did not ask him, why not? Not a single one among them would answer the question. Not a one. Now Rob Port addresses the same question at The Say Anything Blog:

Author Joe McGinnis, whose hit-piece on Sarah Palin called The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin has been causing a stir of late, talked with Newsweek about his book and claims that it is (as the New York Times put it, “caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.”

McGinnis was asked about the most salacious claim in the book, that a young Sarah Palin had sex with basketball star Glen Rice, and it’s revealed that McGinnis apparently never asked Rice directly if he and Palin had a romantic relationship. Rather, he just extrapolated that conclusion from Rice’s ambiguous answer to an indirect question.


Nothing like manufacturing your own conclusions.


I find it to be nothing short of staggering that conservatives have been railing against the “liberal media” for years now, and it turns out that the “conservative media” appears to be no more interested in getting the truth (or at least doing basic, fair reporting) than their counterparts on the left. At least there are a few bloggers willing to go where “journalists” don’t dare to tread.

Hannity is right. Journalism is truly dead.

Media Compensates For Shameful Obama Sycophancy By Tearing Down Palin

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 18, 2011


In a brilliant analysis at The Virginian the authors examines and explains the seeming inexplicable. Why has the media entered on a seemingly endless attack on Sarah Palin-an attack unseen in its ferocity against any previous political figure?  The reason is a deep seated guilt on the media’s part for their utter sycophancy towards Obama.

 This guilt has been assuaged by trying to destroy “the other” which Palin represents to them. Obama is characterized as a “styrofoam god” whose faults are so utterly obvious that for the media to ignore them they have to cover their tracks by being seen to be towards Palin what they should have been towards Obama. 

With the “god” now being seen by all and sundry as having feet of clay. the attacks on Palin have even intensified, but sensible, clear sighted voices, such as this essay, are being heard. and the public is abandoning their former idol. Hopefully Palin can ride this out as the media has, with McGinniss’s book reached the absolute nadir of responsible journalism and their kitchen sink attacks will eventually backfire on them.

A shameful epsode in the history of journalism from 2007 to 2011 is coming to and end at last.



The US media: “cupbearer to a styrofoam demigod”

The MSM was in trouble as a result of the Internet revolution in communication. Like the US Post Office, much of its function has become irrelevant. The difference is that the Post Office still has a shred of reputation despite its service issues (ever go to a post office in the last few years to stand in line while employees ask customers about archaic options?) while the MSM is viewed as a hostile occupying army much like the Germans in Paris in 1942.


Much of the Obama coverage was orchestrated sychophancy. They glided past his pretensions — when did a presidential candidate before “address the world” from the Brandenberg Gate in Berlin? They ignored his arrogance — “You’re likeable enough, Hillary.” And they averted their eyes from his every gaffe — such as the admission that he didn’t speak “Austrian.”

The media walked right past the decades-long association of Obama with the weird and racist pastor Jermiah Wright. In the midst of the brief stormlet over the issue, one CNN host — inexplicably — decided that CNN was going to be a “Wright-free zone.” He could have hung out a sign: “No bad news about Obama here.”

The media trashed Hillary. They burned Republicans. They ransacked Sarah Palin and her family. But Obama, the cool, the detached, the oracular Obama — he strolled to the presidency.

Palin, in particular, stands out as Obama’s opposite in the media’s eyes. As much as they genuflected to the one, they felt the need to turn rotweiler toward the other. If Obama was sacred , classy, intellectual and cosmopolitan, why then Palin must be malevolent, trashy, dumb and pure backwoods-ignorant.

Every doubt they hid from themselves about Obama, every potential embarrassment they tucked under the blanket of their superior sensibilities, they furiously over-compensated for by their remorseless hounding of Palin — from utterly trivial e-mails, to blogger Andrew Sullivan’s weird speculations about Palin’s womb, musings that put the Obama “Birther” fantasies into a realm near sanity. (We are now seeing an echo of that — with a new book promoting all sorts of unconfirmed gossip about Palin, including her alleged sexual dalliance with a basketball star.)

Let’s not kid anyone, the MSM managed to commit intellectual suicide. Like a rock star on drugs and booze the trip felt good and the groupies were there to make them feel alive but reality is creeping in and nobody has any use for their talent. Anyone can make noise, and the acoustics are even better when it’s all amateur hour.

Lloyd Marcus: McGinniss’ Book Is Actually An Attack on America

Posted by joshpainter on September 18, 2011

– by Josh Painter
Lloyd Marcus, in an American Thinker commentary, sees the Joe McGinniss book as more than an attack aimed at Sarah Palin. The Tea Party activist says it’s an attack on mainstream Americans who have traditional values:

Since her extraordinary, upbeat VP nominee acceptance speech in 2008, I have wondered. What did Palin specifically say to prompt such immediate visceral hatred from the left? I have come to realize the answer is her celebration of God, family, and country.

How dare Palin praise traditional marriage, motherhood, Christianity, and American exceptionalism, all of which are anathema to the left? Thus, the left’s hatred of Palin is really hatred of mainstream America — particularly Tea Party patriots.

That is it in a nutshell and explains why the left so desperately seeks to destroy Palin. They hate America and all who love our extraordinary country.

The left is indoctrinating our kids into believing America is the greatest source of all evil in the world; all other religions are superior to Christianity, and homosexuality is superior to heterosexuality. During the Gay Pride Day Celebration at a middle school, kids were taught to give things a try before deciding whether they like it or not. Apparently, Obama agrees.

Palin in the White House would be a major fly-in-the-ointment toward furthering the left’s secular/progressive agenda.

In typical left-wing fashion, McGinniss attacks Palin for her Christian faith and then accuses her of not being Christian enough. Thus, trying to portray Palin to be a hypocrite. It is pretty obnoxious when godless liberal progressive zealots accuse godly people of falling short of Christ’s standards. This tactic is satanic.

Even some liberals say the McGinniss Sarah Palin book scrapes the bottom of the barrel of indecency by showcasing undocumented allegations from weak anonymous sources. The McGinniss book is simply another sleazy hit-piece to destroy this extraordinary Christian woman who is, to the left’s horror, admired and loved by millions.

Like every other attempt to destroy Palin, the McGinniss vile piece of trash will fail.


Marcus predicts that Gov. Palin, should she decide to get into the presidential race, will not just defeat the sitting president, but she will win “in a landslide.”
