Bombshell! Last 34,000 Palin Emails Released.Leftist Media Finds Damning Evidence They Are Idiots

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on February 23, 2012

The State of Alaska released the last 34,000 emails from Sarah Palin’s tenure as Governor according to the Associated Press AT THIS LINK which are now added to the 24,000 released previously.


And what bombshell was found by the AP going through them with a fine tooth comb (as they are still doing)?


Absolutely nothing in respect of dirt, drama, vindictiveness-nothing, nada, nil.

“They painted a picture of an image-conscious, driven leader, struggling with the gossip about her family and marriage, involved in the day-to-day duties of running the state and keeping tabs on the signature issues of her administration.”

What a different story from the mad media feeding frenzy prior to the release of the first batch. The MSM was frothing at the mouth waiting to go through each and every email hoping for some scandal they could destroy Palin with and what utter fools they looked when there was nothing.


Even Jon Stewart ridiculed them which shows how preposterous they, and especially the Palin-hating AP was and are still.


The left has done everything they can to destroy Palin but she still stands as a force in the political scene no matter how silly their now calling “irrelevant” is. 


They are having another attempt in preparation for the “Game Change” hatchet job movie – with the theme being that Palin is somehow unhinged but that, like everything else, will backfire on them.

“Bull” O’Reilly Discusses Governor Palin on ‘Leno’

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 23, 2012

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

Tuesday night, Bill O’Reilly was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. They discussed politics, among other things. O’Reilly did what he usually does: offer his perspective based on…his perspective. So not much was new there, but when Leno asked O’Reilly a question about Governor Palin, my ears perked up. How would he respond? Remember, the Governor has made a few appearances on The Factor, which came to a halt after the time she basically told him to stop interrupting her and let her answer a question. Those who are familiar with O’Reilly know he usually does most of the talking while his guests try to figure out why he invited them on if he wasn’t going to allow them to speak. Until Governor Palin indicated he needed to stop yapping, I had never heard anyone take a firm stand on Bill’s habitual interruptions. That was Governor Palin’s last appearance on his show, until recently. Perhaps it was sheer coincidence. Who knows? What we do know, though, is that after that day, he whined and complained for some time about that appearance and was less then complimentary when speaking about her–more so than usual.

Bill O’Reilly’s response Tuesday night can simply be described as dismissive and condescending. I know you’re thinking, “And this is surprising how?” It’s not, but it does afford an opportunity to once again point out some things.

Here’s part of the exchange:

Leno: Is Sarah Palin pretty much been eclipsed from all of this? Is she not a voice in any of this anymore?

O’Reilly: She has her niche audience, but the Governor is happy where she is on Fox News Channel making a fortune and shooting moose or whatever she shoots. [He laughs.]

First, did Bill actually hear Jay’s question because he certainly didn’t answer it? Leno asked if Governor Palin has a voice of influence in this political process. (It was not until after Bill responded that question that Leno asked about whether someone might “bring her in.”) Bill’s answer is that she is making a fortune and shooting moose. Really? Why didn’t he answer the question Leno asked? Was he too eager to promote his own narrative? Also, one thing has nothing to do with the other, does it? One can be influential and work for Fox News at the same time, can’t she? Isn’t that what they expect from their analysts? I have a hard time imagining that if the same question had been asked about Charles Krauthammer, for example, O’Reilly would have responded in similar fashion.

Second, enough of this making a fortune thing. If people think that Governor Palin would sell out for money, they’ve missed it. They’ve missed her character and her history. Remember, she walked away from a good-paying job to expose corruption in Alaska. As she says, “In politics, you’re either eating well or sleeping well.” She’s not for sale. She doesn’t suffer from a lust for money, and making money has nothing to do with her ability to impact the national scene.

Bill O’Reilly somehow relegates Governor Palin to the position of hunter-gatherer, thereby disqualifying her from being able to make a difference. We know Governor Palin is a hunting enthusiast, and we certainly have no problem with that. However, his condescending suggestion that she’s too busy loving hunting to have any real power is laughable. It continues to baffle me how people respond to and treat a former vice presidential nominee who offered herself up to serve her country. That’s his answer about the influence of the first woman on a Republican ticket in a presidential/vice presidential campaign? Bill, you can do better, can’t you?

His eagerness to dismiss the Governor also does not jive with the facts, and the facts illustrate that our presidential candidates seek Governor Palin’s endorsement, that she can’t go anywhere without someone poking a microphone in her face, that she’s asked who people should vote for in primary and caucus states, that she’s been questioned about a brokered convention, that she’s been asked repeatedly to reconsider her October 5th decision, that Newt Gingrich is on record as wanting her to be a part of a Gingrich administration, that she brought down the house at CPAC, that she went to New York and did a plethora of interviews with people who wanted her take on this primary season, that phrases she’s coined, like “fundamental restoration of America,” routinely come out of Mitt Romney’s mouth–who’s the purported heir to President Obama’s throne, and that causes like exposing crony capitalism all of a sudden became a topic of discussion in debates after she brought it front and center in current political discourse. Who’s lacking a voice?

Furthermore, how many can boast of the intensity of support she has–loyal supporters who would go through hell and high water for her if she just said the word? Which brings me to my next point: this “niche” that O’Reilly refers to when asked about her influence…perhaps we should take a look at something: O’Reilly, who constantly reminds us of how wonderful he is and how many people tune in to watch The Factor, has a little over 511,000 Facebook friends. The washed up, money-grubbing, moose hunter from Alaska has almost 3.3 million. You do the math, Bill–and cut the bull.

Palin Aides Strike Back at ‘Game Change’ Movie in Conference Call with Media

Posted by Dr. Fay on February 23, 2012

In a show of support for Governor Palin, several of her former and current aides engaged in a conference call with CNN reporters yesterday regarding  the HBO movie that Governor Palin has termed a “false narrative.”

Becky Bohrer of the Associated Press wrote:

Current and former aides to Sarah Palin lashed out Wednesday at HBO’s “Game Change,” describing the upcoming film’s depictions of her on the 2008 campaign trail as “sick” and inaccurate.

None of the aides said they have yet seen the movie, which debuts March 10, and some said they had asked for an opportunity to screen the film but had been denied.

[…]

Aides said none of that jibes with their own experiences with the former Alaska governor, and they defended her vigorously Wednesday.

Jason Recher, who handled vice presidential road operations for the McCain-Palin campaign, called Palin “one of the most engaged public servants I’d ever observed.” Tom Van Flein, her former personal attorney, called her diligent, sharp and enthusiastic about the campaign.

Meg Stapleton, a former spokeswoman, said that she, unlike some of the others who worked with Palin during the campaign, had not been contacted by anyone associated with either the book or movie.

“They don’t want to hear anything good,” she said, her voice full of passion. “We all know Palin sells and the dramatization of Palin sells even more. This is sick.”

“They mock Gov. Palin, you mock Gov. Palin, as weak and unable to cope and press forward,” she told reporters on the conference call. “And the movie and the trailer … say that. And yet look with your own eyes at what she and her family have endured and inspired over the last few years. Any lesser man would have hanged himself by now.  So who’s weak?”

Recher noted that Palin wasn’t the primary focus of the book, and he said he told screenwriter and co-executive producer Danny Strong that the book “absolutely, unequivocally” did not accurately reflect his time with the McCain campaign.

[…]

Palin did not participate in Wednesday’s call. Tim Crawford, the treasurer of the political action committee SarahPAC, who facilitated the call, said Palin is on the record as considering the movie a false narrative, and wrote about her experiences in one of her books.

The New York Post reported:

Several former aides to Sarah Palin, a former governor of Alaska, denounced Wednesday a coming HBO movie about the 2008 campaign, calling it a “fiction,” a “false narrative” and “sick.”

[…]

“It presents a false narrative cobbled together by a group of people who simply weren’t there,” Jason Recher, a close aide who traveled with Ms. Palin during the campaign, said of the movie, also called “Game Change,” which is scheduled to air on March 10.

[…]

Meg Stapleton, a longtime associate of Ms. Palin’s who served as a senior adviser and spokeswoman during the campaign, strongly attacked the movie, the authors of the book and the campaign staffers she accused of leaking material about Ms. Palin.

“This is sick,” she said. “The media has gone too far. You accepted the false narrative of a couple of people who sought revenge,” she added, referring to Steve Schmidt, one of Mr. McCain’s top advisers, and Nicolle Wallace, who was brought in during the campaign to advise Ms. Palin.

“Schmidt is infamous for lining up and destroying,” Ms. Stapleton said. “He is abusive, he is abrasive, and he is nothing short of a world-class bully.”

[…]

Randy Scheunemann, a top foreign policy adviser to Mr. McCain during the 2008 campaign and a supporter of Ms. Palin’s, called those scenes false.

“I’ve not been able to review the screenplay or see the movie,” he said. “The book was very misleading, the movie is going to be far worse. It gives fiction a bad name.”

He added that the briefings he gave that are depicted in the movie were an attempt to describe Mr. McCain’s worldview for Ms. Palin, and  that she was “completely conversant on a whole bunch of issues.” He called Ms. Palin “incredibly intelligent.”

CJ Ciaramella at the Washington Free Beacon wrote (emphasis mine):

Steve Schmidt, one of McCain’s top campaign strategists, is reportedly a key figure in the film, and a key source for the book.

[…]

Schmidt offered a withering depiction of Palin in a 2010 60 Minutes segment previewing the release of the Game Change book.

On the conference call, the former Palin staffers shot back, saying Schmidt was an “incompetent, unprofessional” strategist and had “a congenital aversion to the truth.”

“[Schmidt] was abusive. He was abrasive. And he was nothing short of a world-class bully,” former Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton said.

The staffers said they had little if any input in the book, written by journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

“I talked to Halperin twice and tried to push back against the emerging narrative, but that was not reflected at all in the book,” Scheunemann said.

The staffers called Halperin and Heilemann’s depiction a “false narrative cobbled together by people who simply weren’t there.”

Schmidt has since signed a contract with MSNBC.
