Gov. Palin: Hypocritical media should go after law enforcement official who released confidential Duggar report

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 9, 2015

Video retrieved from iizthatiiz.

 

Governor Palin talked with Sean Hannity last night about the liberal hypocrisy and double standard in attacking the Duggar family over their son’s youthful transgressions while lauding Lena Dunham for similar ones.  She said the media should instead be going after the law enforcement official who released the confidential report that revictimized the young women in the Duggar case.  She said the release of that confidential information was political because the Duggars are a conservative family.

When asked her opinion about the slate of candidates for the 2016 Presidential election, she said that the deep bench of Republican candidates was good for competition.  She expressed her opinion that Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic Party Nominee and said that Democrats are sheeple and like to follow one leader.

Notably, Hannity did not ask her whether she planned to run or not, which is probably a first for him when discussing the upcoming election with her.

On this 71st Anniversary of D-Day, may God bless our Greatest Generation for the sacrifices they made for our freedom. Please take some time today to reflect on their courage. Thank a WWII vet and listen to their stories, tell your kids the story of D-Day, watch “The Longest Day” or “Band of Brothers,” or simply say a prayer in gratitude for the tens of thousands who made the ultimate sacrifice that day in order to liberate an entire continent from evil.

“We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we may always be free.” – President Ronald Reagan, June 6, 1984, 40th Anniversary of D-Day

Gov. Palin thanks Peter Schweizer’s team for “showing us how the fat cats roll”

These “Clinton Cash” scandals keep piling up; they illustrate the insiders’ skewed priorities and disrespect for our great nation. America, these are ultimately YOUR tax dollars at work!

So, let me get this straight: we borrow money from foreign countries to give to foreign countries, while America falls apart and we go broke. Meanwhile, politicians continually waste your hard earned money and get rich off their access to power. They’re vultures, but remain oh-so-esteemed. Wake up, America. This is a dangerous game they play while ignoring the nation’s real needs for security. Take for example the $165 billion in American arms sales to authoritarian regimes that turned around and donated a ton of cash to the Clintons. (And these weapons often end up in the enemy’s hands because our weak administration doesn’t require accountability. Fast and Furious, anyone?) Or consider the $145 million the Clintons bagged from investors as Hillary’s State Department committed one-fifth of our nation’s entire uranium production to them! Our own uranium sold to characters who’d potentially enrich it… leading to nukes… leading to the good guys’ destruction.

C’mon, voters. How does any of this serve our country? It’s as pointless as nation building in unfriendly foreign lands. It’s as dangerous as lying about terrorist armies who seek to destroy us as being mere bench warmers, instead of just letting our military do its job and blow the bad guys straight to hell.

We only have ourselves to blame if they – the politicians who work for us – are rewarded with time to do more damage. Only the insane would bless their repeated destructive incompetence and greed.

Thank you, Peter Schweitzer and team, for showing us how the fat cats roll.

Here is the article at Breitbart.com that Gov. Palin linked to:

21 New ‘Clinton Cash’ Revelations That Have Imperiled Hillary Clinton’s Campaign

Hillary Clinton Campaigns In New Hampshire

Prior to the release of the New York Times bestselling investigative exposé Clinton Cash by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer, Hillary Clinton and her supporters claimed she was among the most vetted political figures in America—a candidate about whom everything was known.

Yet as media outlets across the ideological spectrum have confirmed and verified the book’s explosive revelations about Clinton’s tenure as Sec. of State and the influx of hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign sources into the Clinton Foundation, the nation has learned much it did not know. Subsequent reporting by national news outlets has expanded on the book’s findings using its investigative methodology.

Indeed, the dizzying flurry of resulting Hillary Clinton Foundation scandals has been difficult to keep up with. As CNN’s John King put it on Sunday, “You can’t go 20 minutes in this town, it seems, without some sort of a story about Clinton Foundation that gives you a little bit of the creeps.”

Early on, as Clinton Cash bombshells began appearing in the New York Times, Washington Post, New Yorker, Bloomberg, and elsewhere, Hillary Clinton’s campaign sought to calm nervous campaign donors by announcing the creation of a special “rapid response” War Room aimed at combating a book, an unprecedented move in the annals of modern presidential campaigning. The Clinton campaign team built a website called “The Briefing,” issued memos, and tasked an eight-person team to create videos featuring embattled Clinton spokesperson Brian Fallon as he awkwardly and unsuccessfully attempted to smear Peter Schweizer. Team Clinton’s message: all of Clinton Cash’s revelations are incorrect or merely “coincidences.”

Yet as the nation’s largest news organizations began to confirm finding after finding, the Clinton campaign did the only thing it could: it gave up in its attempts to refute the swelling avalanche of now well-established facts. Indeed, the Clinton campaign’s last video response on its “The Briefing” YouTube page is dated May 5thClinton Cash’s official launch date.

To date, Hillary Clinton has yet to substantively answer a single question from the mountain of Clinton Cash questions that continue to pile up with each passing day.

The result: according to Tuesday’s CNN poll, the “Clinton Cash Effect” has rendered Hillary Clinton historic new lows in her favorability with American voters.

Below we chronicle just 21 of the myriad Clinton Cash-related revelations that have emerged since the book’s publication—all of which have been confirmed and verified as accurate by national media organizations.

[…]

Hillary Clinton has refused to substantively answer a single question related to the above 21 revelations, or the scores of others not reflected above.

In answer to a question about Clinton Cash, Bill Clinton said the book “won’t fly.” The book has remained on the New York Times bestseller list three weeks in a row after debuting at number two.

Now, with Hillary Clinton’s poll ratings at all-time lows, Americans and the nation’s journalists eagerly await the chance to hear Hillary Clinton’s answers to the growing mountain of Clinton Cash-related revelations, investigative findings that have consumed and imperiled her candidacy.

Gov. Palin: Tell your kids the truth about Memorial Day’s meaning

As you enjoy time with friends and family today, don’t forget the selfless souls who made our freedom possible. Tell your kids the truth about Memorial Day’s meaning. We’re in a free nation today – free so far – because courageous Americans made the necessary sacrifices to bring us this far. We owe them a debt of gratitude. We had all better take responsibility for the true state of this Union and demand better from those with the influence to awaken the masses. Granted, those with influence may not have it within them, so find it within yourself to help our current generation of vets and active duty military. It’s tragic to see for the most part that it is vets taking care of vets today, while too many people sit on their butts taking our military men and women for granted. Vets, active duty military and their families are serving YOU! They’re putting it all on the line to serve something greater than self! And yet our warped media and Hollywood elites too often belittle them while they prop up their ridiculously weak “heroes” that a celebrity-obsessed society worships. Talking down our troops, taking down patriotic Americans just trying to do their best and seeking redemption when we screw up… when will the majority rise up and say, “No more.” May it begin today, on this Memorial Day when all should be thinking outside of self and doing something to help the families and loved ones of those who died for you. God bless you, and I sure hope God will keep blessing the USA. God hasn’t given up on this nation, don’t you give up either.

Gov. Palin: A bridge over troubled waters

————————-

Kicking off Memorial Day weekend, here’s to any and all looking for a bridge over troubled waters. Every person on earth encounters those waters. To those, especially, fighting hard for our country’s good future and perhaps feeling your efforts are futile, cling to these verses on anxiety, disappointment, and unclear vision:

Billy Graham once said, “The Bible is not an option; it’s a necessity.” This is especially true in times of despair that can lead to anxiety and fear. These are a few of many Bible verses to refer to for peace and comfort.

“We can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?’”
—Hebrews 13:6

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
—Philippians 4:6-7

“I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”
—Psalm 34:4

“Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.”
—Psalm 42:5

“Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.”
—Matthew 6:34

“We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.”
—2 Corinthians 4:8-9

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
—Psalm 23:1-6

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
—1 Peter 5:5-7

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
—Revelation 21:4

Have a safe weekend, and thank you, Mr. Decker, for the compilation!

Gov. Palin: May God’s hand of protection remain on this country

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 18, 2015

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this afternoon:

Sarah Palin
5 hrs ·
—————

It’s unfortunate and potentially frightening knowing that everywhere you look today jihad is on the march – even on American soil. Warnings for potential terrorist attacks on our homeland are now stepped up, and with the arrest of dozens of Americans on terrorism related charges, the message is clear that no place seems safe from jihad.

Our military personnel and law enforcement agencies have to be right every time, but the terrorists only have to get “lucky” once to do horrible damage to our country. The threat of radical Islam is real, and it must not be allowed to be ignored.

With the recent capture of Ramadi, ISIS has scored a key victory that is more than symbolic as this death cult takes land that Americans spilled blood and treasure to secure. Make no mistake that this situation could have been avoided had the Obama administration heeded the warnings of military brass that urged them to keep a residual force in Iraq to maintain the peace that America and our allies fought so hard for.

But it’s never too late to do the right thing. That means getting serious about defeating ISIS at the source while remaining ever vigilant at home. As always, our foreign policy must be rooted in the motto Peace Through Strength. For your part, friends, I encourage you to keep in perspective the issues-of-the-day that media chooses to report on. Demand our leaders and the press keep national priorities straight, and don’t allow fear to dictate our actions and change our way of life. To cower in fear is to let the enemy win. So stay vigilant, take personal responsibility for the safety of ourselves and our property, support our troops, and learn through history that we only remain free by being brave.

May God’s hand of protection remain on this country that has dedicated herself to Him.

(Updated) Palins attend fundraiser for families of Navy Seals on Armed Forces Day

——————–

Todd and I are very excited to attend the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation fundraiser tomorrow aboard the historic USS Iowa. We’ll be joined by friends who love our troops as much as we do, and Todd will reunite with former Navy Seal and “Stars Earn Stripes” operative Brent Gleason.

This battleship is the perfect setting to honor the families of our Navy’s elite fighting force. The USS Iowa has a long and distinguished history as the lead ship of her class and the fourth to bear the name of the great state of Iowa. She was built and commissioned in 1943 in the New York Navy Yard in Brooklyn. During World War II, she transported President Roosevelt to and from Casablanca and was part of the Battles of the Philippine Sea and Leyte Gulf, and she was even present in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945, when the Japanese formally surrendered, ending World War II. She later served in the Korean War and was decommissioned for the first time in 1958. During President Reagan’s defense buildup in the 1980s, the USS Iowa was modernized and recommissioned, and she carried President Reagan during the International Naval Review in the Hudson River on the Fourth of July, 1986. She was decommissioned for the last time in 1990, and is now based at Berth 87 in the Port of Los Angeles where she’s open to the public as the USS Iowa Museum.

This great ship and her crew represented the finest traditions of our United States Navy spanning over five decades. The USS Iowa, like our SEAL-NSW families, embodies the values of the Navy song, “Faith, Courage, Service True, with Honor, Over Honor, Over All.”

It is an honor to help raise funds for our sacrificial Seal families. God bless the men and women of our United States Navy and, so importantly, their families!

You betcha Sarah Palin was right on both Ukraine and Obama

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 9, 2015

Excellent editorial at Investors’ Business Daily  (h/tp Daniel John Sobieski):

Sarah Palin Was Right On Ukraine And Obama

03/03/2014 06:08 PM ET

Arrogance: Mocked by late-night comedians and “experts” alike, Sarah Palin could see from her front porch that candidate Obama’s response to Moscow’s invasion of Georgia would encourage it also to invade Ukraine.

As the Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes notes in a tweet, administration officials told CNN’s Barbara Starr that the arrival of officers of the 76th Chernihov Storm Troops Division and their dispersal across key choke points in Ukraine, including Crimea, wasn’t an “invasion” but an “uncontested arrival.”

Whatever this Russian version of an “overseas contingency operation” is called, it was foreseen as the inevitable consequence of electing a president who believed America was the last colonial power and whose withdrawal from the world stage would get rid of a major distraction to his fundamental transformation of America.

In October 2008, after Russia’s invasion of neighboring Georgia brought foreign policy back to the forefront of a heated campaign, Palin told an audience in Nevada:

“After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Sen. Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.”

Her prediction was derided by the likes of Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico magazine, as “strange” and “extremely far-fetched.” This prediction, after all, was from an in-over-her-head Wasilla, Alaska, housewife who said she could see Russia from her front porch.

What she could see and what President Obama to this day can’t are the consequences of appeasement and that the Cold War and all contests between free men and tyrants are not misunderstandings that can be dealt with by hitting a “reset” button, but are necessary resistance by free men to tyrants who would snuff all freedom out.

Palin foresaw a weak president who would bow to world leaders as he was apologizing to them for American excess. President Obama would go on to cave to Russian pressure and betray our NATO allies on missile defense, promising Russia’s leaders he would have more “flexibility” to bend to their will after his reelection.

Palin justifiably took to Facebook Friday to remind supporters and detractors alike of her prediction.

“Yes, I could see this one from Alaska,” she said on Facebook. It was her 2009 reference to Alaska’s proximity to Russia that was parodied in a skit on Saturday Night Live by Tina Fey, who played Palin on the show, saying “I can see Russia from my house.”

She was similarly mocked by liberals when, at a Tea Party rally in Reno, Nev., in late 2010, shortly before the GOP retook the House of Representatives, she told attendees: “Don’t be thinking that we’ve got victory for America in the bag yet … We can’t party like it’s 1773.”

Leftist know-it-alls and mainstream media talking heads insisted that 1776 was the correct year, when in fact Palin was right: The Boston Tea Party she referred to — a protest of British oppressive taxation that led to the creation of the grass-roots namesake movement — happened on Dec. 16, 1773.

As our own Andrew Malcolm pointed out in a June 2011 piece in the Los Angeles Times, Palin was also right when she said Paul Revere, the famous midnight rider, also warned the British that the Americans were coming.

“Less known, obviously,” Malcolm wrote, “is the rest of the evening’s events in which Revere was captured by said redcoats and did indeed defiantly warn them of the awakened militia awaiting their arrival ahead and of the American Revolution’s inevitable victory.”

Gov. Palin: We will never allow God to be booted from the public square

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 9, 2015

 

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page on Friday:

Those honoring the National Day of Prayer this week are committed to our nation’s biblical foundation, and we thank selfless Americans who protect this Christian nation’s freedom of religion! In reverence to the Lord’s grace and mercy we will never allow God to be booted from the public square. The public acknowledgement of our need for God’s blessing has been with us from the beginning – from the eve of our Revolution, when the First Continental Congress called for “a day of publick humiliation, fasting, and prayer,” to 1952, when Congress established the National Day of Prayer. It was signed it into law so we would “turn to God in prayer,” knowing our need for His hand of protection and guidance. Today, more than ever, we need the Almighty’s mercy, and we are actually invited by Him to humbly ask that He bless this land. Please pray that He will navigate us through these troubling times, dedicating ourselves and our great nation back to Him.

Here is the article by Mark Alexander at The Patriot Post that she linked to:

Endowed by Our Creator

By Mark Alexander · May 6, 2010

“To the distinguished Character of Patriot, it should be our highest Glory to add the more distinguished Character of Christian. The signal Instances of providential Goodness which we have experienced and which have now almost crowned our labours with complete Success, demand from us in a peculiar manner the warmest returns of Gratitude and Piety to the Supreme Author of all Good.” –George Washington

Today is our National Day of Prayer, a good day to ask, “Does the Constitution provide a ”wall of separation“ between church and state?

The short answer is “yes,” but most certainly not the faux wall constructed by judicial activists over the last century.

In 1775, on the eve of Revolution, the First Continental Congress called for “a day of publick humiliation, fasting, and prayer.”

Apparently, our Founders saw a national day of prayer as a fitting observance, not unlike the establishment of Thanksgiving, of which George Washington wrote in 1777, “Being the day set apart by the Honorable Congress for public Thanksgiving and Praise; and duty calling us devoutly to express our grateful acknowledgements to God for the manifold blessings he has granted us, the General … earnestly exhorts, all officers and soldiers, whose absence is not indispensably necessary, to attend with reverence the solemnities of the day.”

Other Founders continued the tradition.

John Adams declared May 9, 1798, as “a day of solemn humiliation, fasting, and prayer … that our country may be protected from all the dangers which threaten it.”

James Madison followed this tradition, but wrote, “I was always careful to make the Proclamations absolutely indiscriminate, and merely recommendatory; or rather mere designations of a day, on which all who thought proper might unite in consecrating it to religious purposes, according to their own faith & forms. In this sense, I presume you reserve to the Govt. a right to appoint particular days for religious worship throughout the State, without any penal sanction enforcing the worship.”

Our Founders were greatly and rightly suspect of any encroachment by government upon religious freedom, and codified that proscription in Amendment I of our Bill of Rights: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

In other words, Congress may not mandate that a particular religion be nationalized, and others be prohibited.

Our Founders were not radical secularists. Far from it. One need only examine their many writings on the subject as evidence. But, rightly, they didn’t want the United States to be wedded with a particular church, as was the case with England and the Anglican Church.

Thomas Jefferson, a vigilant though skeptical Anglican, made clear this prohibition in his obscure but maliciously misconstrued 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptist Association. Far from calling for the coercive stripping of all religious influences from public life, Jefferson merely assured his Baptist constituents in Connecticut that their denominational practices were safe because our Constitution provided a “wall of separation” between church and state, which would prohibit the national government from recognizing Anglicanism as the national religion. (Notably, two days after writing that letter, Jefferson attended religious services in the House of Representatives.)

As Madison wrote, our Constitution, the one he penned, does not bar the government from designating “particular days for religious worship throughout the State,” though now the courts prohibit prayers before local football games.

Indeed, in the latter half of the 20th century, judicial activists (the “despotic branch”) as Jefferson called them) have “interpreted” the First Amendment to suit their political agendas, placing evermore severe constraints upon the free exercise of religion while wholly misrepresenting the aforementioned “Wall of Separation” in a concerted effort to expel religious practice from any and all public forums.

They have done so by falsely putting forth a “living constitution,” a revisionist document which has little resemblance to the authentic Constitution that once was our Republic’s standard for Rule of Law.

As noted by former Chief Justice William Rehnquist, “The wall of separation between church and state is a metaphor based upon bad history, a metaphor which has proved useless as a guide to judging. It should be frankly and explicitly abandoned. … The greatest injury of the ‘wall’ notion is its mischievous diversion of judges from the actual intention of the drafters of the Bill of Rights.”

The intended consequence of this artificial barrier between church and state is to remove the unmistakable influence of our Creator from all public forums, particularly government education institutions, and thus, over time, to disabuse belief in a sovereign God and the notion of natural Rights. This erosion of knowledge about the origin of our Rights, the very foundation of our country and basis of our Constitution, has dire implications for the future of our Essential Liberty.

In 1952, Congress established the National Day of Prayer as an annual event by a joint resolution, signed into law by President Harry Truman. The NDP designation (36 U.S.C. § 119) calls for the nation “to turn to God in prayer and meditation.”

Naturally, the Despotic Branch is challenging that resolution, asserting that religion and politics don’t mix.

On April 15, 2010, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb (a 1979 Jimmy Carter nominee) ruled that the statute establishing the National Day of Prayer was unconstitutional, as it is “an inherently religious exercise that serves no secular function.”

That ruling, of course, has no basis in our Constitution, but merely among those who have contorted its true meaning into a grotesque remnant of its original brilliance.

Perhaps Ms. Crabb, and all other jurists who are attempting to amend our Constitution by judicial diktat in full disregard for the constitutional prescription for amendment in Article 5, should pause and consider the faith of our Founders.

Perhaps they should look into the depth of faith that motivated the actions of Patriot Founders John Hancock, Roger Sherman, John Dickinson, Hugh Williamson, Benjamin Rush, Samuel Huntington, John Adams, William Williams, Robert Treat Paine, Rufus King, William Livingston, James Wilson, George Mason and Patrick Henry.

Here are but a few examples of how our Founders expressed their faith when in positions of authority.

Hancock called on his home state of Massachusetts to pray, “that universal happiness may be established in the world [and] that all may bow to the scepter of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the whole earth be filled with His glory.”

According to John Adams: “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God. … The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity. … Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited. … What a Eutopia – what a Paradise would this region be!”

Henry wrote, “The Bible … is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed. … The great pillars of all government and of social life [are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.”

Samuel Adams called on Massachusetts to pray that, “we may with one heart and voice humbly implore His gracious and free pardon through Jesus Christ, supplicating His Divine aid … [and] above all to cause the religion of Jesus Christ, in its true spirit, to spread far and wide till the whole earth shall be filled with His glory.”

Even those who were cautious about the public expressions of religion left evidence of their views on Christianity.

Jefferson wrote, “I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be: sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others. … I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.”

Benjamin Franklin wrote, “As to Jesus of Nazareth … I think the system of morals and His religion as He left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is likely to see.”

But beyond religious references – our Founders unequivocally enumerated the Natural Rights of all men in our Declaration of Independence.

The first paragraph of our Declaration references “the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them,” which informs the words “endowed by their Creator” in the second paragraph.

Sarah Palin smashes Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton in new polls

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 3, 2015

Interesting article by Lance Thate at St. Augustine Tea Party Examiner.  (h/tp @GeraldineLewis) Note that the pollsters sampled visitors to the historic district of St. Augustine, which receives 5 million visitors per year.  This would provide a potentially national representation in the polls.

Thate’s April 20 article includes this description of the polling:

The reader should bear in mind that this is not an opinion poll strictly from St. Augustine residents. Very few people on St. George Street, on any one day are from the city. St. George Street is populated by people from every state in the union, and many countries of the world. The poll was random and face-to-face. Only American citizens of voting age were allowed to participate.

New Poll: Palin Slams Bush

New Poll: Palin Slams Bush  Town Criers 4-25-15

 

Palin Slams Bush

New Poll Destroys the Vision of the Elite GOP Leadership
Republican’s “Rock Star Status” Ignored by both the Media and GOP

The Bush Family

Florida Citizen’s Allaince

On April 25, 2015 a random face-to-face poll was conducted in St. Augustine, Florida, testing the strength of two potential presidential candidates. The question was “Who would you vote for Sarah Palin or Jeb Bush?” The results are as follows:

1. Palin 55%
2. Bush 37%
3. Neither 8%

The poll was conducted by the Town Crier Committee. The Town Criers, a committee of the St. Augustine Tea Party, have been engaging the public in the historic district of St. Augustine, Florida for over four years. The historic district hosts 5 million visitors per year. [See http://www.examiner.com/review/a-look-at-town-crier-s-history.]

The committee has been running a series of polls, testing the effects of media slander against Gov. Palin. The first poll was taken January 31, 2015. The poll involved Palin and Clinton. Palin received 74%. The second poll, on April 18, 2015, was after Clinton announced and the money scandal started to surface. Palin received 79%. [See http://www.examiner.com/article/hillary-decimated-by-palin-today-s-poll.]

The Republicans have a Winner

Republicans have a winner. There is no one that the Democrats could put up that would beat Sarah Palin. They know it; the Republican leadership knows it. From conversations with Republicans on this subject this reporter concludes that the Party would prefer to lose an election than embrace the former Governor of Alaska. Governor Palin was a reformer. She cleaned up the corruption surrounding the oil industry in Alaska. If you were involved in the corruption, being a Republican didn’t save you. And then going rogue during the vice presidential campaign. The Republican elite do not want candidates that lead, they want followers. So, the Republicans are doing what they do when you go rogue; they shun you.
