Palin: R-E-S-P-E-C-T from Nader

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on September 22, 2011

Published by Salon just yesterday, Ralph Nader, accurately described as a “longtime crusader for the left”, was asked to comment on Palin’s September 3rd Indianola, Iowa speech with some surprising remarks.

Ralph Nader hearts Sarah Palin?

We decided to call the longtime left crusader about a speech Palin gave in Iowa earlier this month, one which seemed to mark the transformation of Palin from a standard-issue movement conservative to something more independent and more reformist. And Nader told us he liked what he heard.

“I think she’s a lot smarter than most people credit her,” says Nader. “Judging by her comments, she is squarely in the camp of conservative populism, opposed to corporatism and its corporate state.”

Palin delivered the speech in question in Indianola, Iowa, on Sept. 3. As Anand Giridharadas later observed in the Times, the media responded primarily by “ignoring the ideas she unfurled and dwelling almost entirely on the will-she-won’t-she question of her presidential ambitions.”

Some of the rhetoric was familiar. Palin slammed the “far left,” praised the Tea Party, and denounced the idea of more government spending.

But there was also some refreshingly new material. She described a “permanent political class,” one that is hypocritical and devoted to personally profiting off of government. (“Seven of the 10 wealthiest counties are suburbs of Washington, D.C.,” she noted.) She spoke of “the collusion of big government and big business and big finance.” And she took aim at both parties for governing in service of their big campaign contributors.

This sounded to us like Nader. And Nader agreed. More

Why A RINO Win Would Be Worse Than Obama’s Re-election

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 22, 2011

For what it is worth, I’ve made my preference known, I will write in Palin if she doesn’t run.

 By the way, as opposed to the latest MSM meme, if she doesn’t run I won’t feel “disappointed/taken for a ride/led up the garden path/ consider myself a sucker or”deranged”/ or having lived in a fantasy world or, a favorite of  Palin obsessed Mataconis “buying into a charade.”

On the contrary, if Palin does not run I will be filled with admiration for a person who suffered three years of unprecedented hate from all quarters and stood strong whilst enunciating principles that have changed the political framework. 

The haters and the Mataconis’s just don’t get it, it is possible to support a person with tremendous energy, accept they are human and have faults and, whilst regretting a decision not to run,if that happens, accepting it as a positive character trait.

If she doesn’t run (and even if she endorses someone) I will still write in her name. If enough people do that as well and the result is that, in a close election President Obama is re-elected then there are positives to that outcome which I welcome.

When Salvador Allende was overthrown in an engineered coup a prescient American businessman said that one of the most unfortunate things about his removal by force was “that it muddied the waters”. If Allende was allowed to face the voters and was defeated it would have proven, he said, once and for all that socialism, even the ‘socialism with a human face” the “historic compromise” doesn’t work.

What the coup did was to create a myth, and give an excuse to the left for the failure of Allende’s economy. That the economy was in collapse at the end was certainly due in part to the engineered strikes, but also due to the inflationary environment. 

So too with the Obama administration. If he is defeated by a Perry or Romney and the economy continues on its downward trajectory or stagnates, then there is room for the waters to be muddied. The left apologists, and Obama himself could say “I inherited a mess and four years was not enough to turn things round.” 

Thus, when the Perry/Romney RINO/Beltway administration starts to become unpopular, after a brief flurry of popularity, as all newly elected “hope and change” administrations get, then the left will come out of their shell and call for a big spending government and the whole cycle will repeat itself.

If however Obama is re-elected then there will be no excuses with any credibility. If three years into his second term the economy is still in the tank then the country will be ready for the Palin prescription of small government, low taxes, and letting the market do its work with a bonus  of a regenerated ethical and spiritual ethos coming from the top.

Four more years of what we have now, from either an Obama or RINO, more of the same, administration may be a bitter pill to swallow but it might just be the pill that does the cure. On the other hand the whole scenario could be avoided if Palin ran and won, and commenced her administration with a supportive congress and a public hungry for real change. 

Letting the market do its job unimpeded by government (even if there is a bitter pill to be taken to get that under way) is the realistic hope and change, and if it needs to be brought about by a dramatic election win for Palin, or four years in the economic doldrums then so be it.

Federal Reserve Governor: “When Sarah Palin Speaks, They (The Republicans) All Fall In Line”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 22, 2011

Laurence Meyer, former Federal Reserve governor, after discussing the Fed’s latest moves to try and shore up the failing Obama economy, states he is “apolitical” and at 5:12 in the video he says “The Republicans speak with one voice…when Sarah Palin speaks, everyone falls in line.”

Along with her rise in the polls to be just outside the MOE against President Obama the powers that be clearly recognize who is the driving force, and where the real center of power is in the GOP-it certainly isn’t the Romney wing.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

“I Have Decided NOT To Support Any of the Republican Hopefuls

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on September 22, 2011

 In considering the 2012 election I posted this some time ago:
 

“If Palin Doesn’t Run-Then who To Support?

It depends of course.

If Palin doesn’t run and endorses someone then, except for Romney or Bachmann that’s the person I would vote for (Palin supporters are not robots). If Palin endorses a candidate and that candidate subsequently chooses either Romney or Bachmann as their running mate then I would not vote for them.

In both the above,”I won’t vote for them” cases I would write in Palin.

If Palin doesn’t endorse anyone then I would vote in a primary election for, in descending order, Giuliani, Pawlenty, Perry-if none of those were on the ballot I would write in Palin.”

Since writing that, I have had the opportunity to further consider the prospective candidates. My views on Bachmann and Romney have been, if anything, further consolidated- I won’t vote for either under any circumstances.

Pawlenty has gone, I have seen enough of Perry to say no thanks. Giuliani is the only prospective candidate I would consider at this point. Even if Palin endorsed  a candidate I would not vote for them, except, perhaps Rudy.

At this point I have to agree with the writer of this letter, with the one possible exception of Giuliani. If he doesn’t run, and Palin doesn’t run, then I too will write in Palin.

******************************************************************************************************

Sarah Palin for Pres. or Bust

I have decided to NOT support any of the Republican Presidential Hopefuls. –

I will only support Sarah Palin for President of the United States even if I have to write her in.A)  Americans generally do not trust Republicans or Democrats.  (either do I).

Sarah Palin has always been a lone ranger of sorts that held both parties to account. 

She didn’t play politics…always looking to improve Alaska’s economy and the management
of Alaska’s resources against crony Oil companies.

It is about time America realize what I realize…

The CHOICES ALL STINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As a PROUD  Conservative…..  I WILL NOT….. I SHALL NOT…… SUPPORT ANYONE
whose last name doesn’t end in Palin.

McGinniss’s Email Proves His Anti-Palin Book Has No Proof

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 22, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

I have purposely stayed away from writing about the release of Joe McGinniss’s book in which he makes degrading claims about Governor Palin and the Palin family. Some things, as far as I’m concerned, just don’t deserve the publicity. Even the mainstream media, certainly no friends of the Governor, lashed out against McGinniss, who had found a way to weasel next door to the Palins while writing his hit piece. No thinking person truly believed what this character had to say anyway, but today Andrew Breitbart shed further light on what McGinniss is full of.

After a week of universally scathing pans from the reflexively anti-Palin establishment media, McGinniss now faces the fight of his literary life: the accusation that he seems to have knowingly submitted a book to his publisher, Crown/Random House, that was filled with unproved “tawdry gossip” and rumors that lacked “factual evidence.”

In the email below, sent in January of 2011, McGinniss reveals that his manuscript, then under legal review at Crown/Random House, could not prove its most headline-grabbing allegations. And yet, many of these “salacious stories” that lacked “proof” (in McGinniss’s own words) ended up in the book, and on televisions everywhere during the author’s current media tour … without proper sourcing, and without any apparent new evidence to support them.

McGinniss’s panicked state is evidenced by the identity of the recipient to whom he sent his email of distress. Jesse Griffin was the author of an obscure, low-rent, and now-defunct anti-Palin blog that obsessed over Trig Palin’s maternity–claiming, without any evidence, that Sarah Palin was not Trig’s mother.

Was Random House aware that its prized author was making a desperate overtime bid to save face? And if so, why did it allow him to come forth with most of those tawdry accusations without proof or proper sourcing?

This would not be the first time McGinniss has found himself in trouble over accusations of unethical journalism. In 1987, McGinniss agreed to pay $325,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by the convicted murderer who was the subject of McGinniss’s book Fatal Vision. He has also admitted to having surreptitiously distributed a competitor’s manuscript about Palin that was handed to him by his own publisher. The leak allegedly damaged the commercial viability of that book.

In 2003, Random House released a larger-than-life, massive bestseller by James Frey entitled A Million Little Pieces. Later, it was revealed that the book was a fantastical literary hoax that made its way past some of the highest-paid and most respected editors and lawyers in the literary world. Doubleday/Random House felt compelled to offer full refunds to those who had bought the book.

Has history repeated itself?

Mr. McGinniss has not responded to multiple requests for comment.

The email he sent to anti-Palin blogger, Jesse Griffin, clearly depicts a McGinniss in panic because he had no facts to substantiate the attacks on Governor Palin’s character found in his book. He was essentially begging for anything to help him in his motive to take her down, acknowledging that as it stood his book was nothing more than smutty gossip. The email speaks for itself. Read it here at Breitbart’s Big Government.

Breitbart has updated his original post with the revelation that Random House chose to publish the McGinniss book even after lawyers told him there was no evidence to prove his allegations. He writes:

In an email dated January 27, 2011, Joe McGinniss, author of The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, says that Random House lawyers have told him he has provided nothing more than “tawdry gossip” to substantiate “any of the salacious stories about the Palin family.”

He adds that “No one has ever provided factual evidence” (original emphasis) of the following accusations:

[…]

Yet almost all of these accusations appear in McGinniss’s book, without any substantial proof beyond gossip, and without any apparent new information to address the lack of “factual evidence” in January 2011.

You can go here to read those accusations.

Governor Palin has yet to say directly what she’s decided to do in 2012, but she has been rather consistent when speaking of the qualifications needed of the Republican candidate who will ensure that ABO (Anybody But Obama) occupies the White House in January 2013. The most vetted candidate is part of her list. Who else is more vetted than she? And the more people attempt to depict her as anyone other than a person with unquestionable work ethic, a stellar record, and upstanding character, the more foolish they make themselves look. She has been held up to more microscopes than a science lab could house, and she has emerged spotless each time. Don Surber puts it this way:

If she runs, I will vote for Sarah Palin satisfied that there are no skeletons in her closet. She is who she says she is. So many people have vetted her that I have full confidence that there is no scandal anywhere.

Palin letting Romney and Perry duke it out?

Posted by loricalabrese on September 22, 2011

9 candidates are vying for the Republican nomination and will go head to head tonight at the Fox News/Google debate in Orlando. All eyes are on the top two contenders, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, who will duke it out for the third time in three weeks. But you have to wonder about the strategy of another potential candidate who has yet to announce—Sarah Palin.

Palin appeared on FOX News’ Hannity this week, stating that there’s still time for her to declare.

“There is still time, Sean, and I think on both sides of the aisle I think you’re going to see people coming and going from this race.  And I’m still one of those still considering the time factor,”  Palin said.  Although she said she will have to legally decide by November, she stated how this will be a different race. “But I do think Sean, this is going to be such an unconventional election cycle. … Mark my word, it is going to be an unconventional type of election process.”

Karl Rove points out on FOX News that “At this point four years ago, Rudy Giuliani led the GOP field with 28%, trailed by former Sen. Fred Thompson at 23% and John McCain at 15%, with everyone else in single digits. When the dust finally cleared, neither Messrs. Giuliani nor Thompson was a serious contender—and Govs. Romney and Mike Huckabee pressed Mr. McCain hard before he prevailed. All of which means the 2012 Republican sweepstakes is far from over.”

That can definitely be true because a new McClatchy-Marist Poll shows Palin has gained in a hypothetical matchup against President Obama, and now only trails him 49%-44% and is actually leading among independents 47%-43%.

So you have to wonder, perhaps Palin’s strategy is to let Romney and Perry duke it out with each other before she gets into the fray. The two frontrunners have been debating each other for days and the media continues to keep score, giving Perry the first debate, and Romney the second. Not only has Romney attacked Perry for calling social security a failure, Perry has made a big play to shore up his foreign policy credentials in recent days, and Perry has declared Romney Obama-lite.

As we head into their third debate, who will prevail? One thing’s for sure, if you’re Sarah Palin, it’s wise to let Romney and Perry duke it out. Who knows, they might fight so hard that they knock each other out, making room for only one candidate whose name is Palin.
