The Face Of Democrat Insanity

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 29, 2009

You know, the definition of insanity is doing the same stupid thing over and over, and expecting different results. With that in mind, some Alaska democrats have earned a lifetime stay in a padded cell.

Folks even remotely knowledgeable about Governor Sarah Palin know all about the epic failures Alaskan democrat bloggers and their operatives have experienced in their attempts to smear the Governor. Currently they are batting 16-0 with their ridiculous “ethics complaints.” 17-0 if you count the failed “troopergate” attempt. Details are here, here, and here.

So what does Alaska’s official DNC blogger, Linda Kellen Biegel, have up her sleeve now? Well, she’s cooking up another ethics complaint, of course!

You might remember all of the commotion this hateful gal caused when she posted a photoshopped image of Governor Palin and her youngest child. It led everyone to ask why is it OK for democrats to attack small children, especially when they are the children of conservatives.

You’d have thought she’d learned her lesson from the fallout David Letterman experienced after his series of insults aimed at the Governor’s 14 year old daughter. But again, we are talking about the clinically insane here.

Biegel, who blogs as the Celtic Diva eventually took the photo down, and now has pages worth of explaining posted. That’s something else democrats are really good at. They will insult you in the most vile ways, and then “apologize” or “explain” things to you. But mostly they’ll just tell you that you aren’t smart enough to understand the nuance of discussing the rape of a 14 year old girl or how photoshopping a picture of a down syndrome child is some sort of high art form.

And of course, all of them band together to express their outrage when called on their hatefulness. Democrats are the do as I say, not as I do party.

As you know, Biegel, who is rapidly becoming a laughing stock in the sane world, used the image of Governor Palin and young Trig Palin as part of a fund raising effort she has ongoing. She is raising funds to file more insane ethics violations complaints, of course, and says so on her blog. Now, she refuses to disclose donors names, and claims this is not a “political fund” so she doesn’t have to follow the law on this sort of thing. Or file the proper paperwork.

Ironic, because she wants to use this money in an effort to “gain more transparency” from Governor Palin.

No really, I’m not making this stuff up!

So what is Alaska’s self appointed “ethics chief” caterwauling about now?

Well, people who keep up with the Governor will tell you that she made a trip this weekend to visit Alaska National Guard troops during a training exercise off the coast, and then spent time at Camp Bondsteel Ferizaj, Kosovo and then visited wounded troops at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.

This is Governor Palin’s second trip abroad to visit her Guard troops. In 2007, not long after she was elected, she traveled to Kuwait and then Germany.

Funny thing, that wasn’t an ethics violation back then. But of course, she wasn’t the odds on favorite to unseat Barack Obama in 2012 either.

At any rate, as Commander-In-Chief of the Alaska National Guard, Sarah Palin was well within the scope of her duties on this trip. And as Maj General Craig Campbell, who accompanied the Governor on the trip pointed out in this interview, Governor Palin takes these duties quite serious.

The issue?

It seems our poor misguided Diva now fancies herself a constitutional scholar. Of course so do these two!

Was able to pull this off of her website:

NEW VIOLATION BY PALIN!!!

Found this on palingates (emphasis mine):

BlackMountain wrote on 06/27/2009 03:27:42 PM:

Something for the Palinbots to think about- Palin violated the US Supreme Court Greer vs. Spock decision which banned partisan political speeches or rallies on military bases. Palin also caused every soldier to violate a military directive that bars service members from attending partisan political speeches either in uniform, on duty, or at any military base/facility.

Isn’t it just a doozie that Palin would violate a US Supreme Court Decision – and top it off with having our soldiers violate military directives!”

Now I won’t even pretend to be a constitutional scholar, even though it seems that pretty much anyone can get away with saying so! But I will claim that I have a reading comprehension at or above the third grade level.

I took a look at Greer v Spock. This is a case from the 1970’s.

Without quoting chapter and verse, here is a synopsis of the case:

“Fort Dix, a federal military reservation devoted primarily to basic training for newly inducted Army personnel, and over which the Government exercises exclusive jurisdiction, permits free civilian access to certain unrestricted areas. However, post regulations ban speeches and demonstrations of a partisan political nature and also prohibit the distribution of literature without prior approval of post headquarters. Pursuant to these regulations, the commanding officer of Fort Dix rejected the request of respondent candidates for President and Vice President to distribute campaign literature and hold a political meeting on the post and the other respondents, who had been evicted on several occasions for distributing literature not previously approved, were barred from reentering the post. Respondents brought suit to enjoin enforcement of these regulations on the ground that they violated the First and Fifth Amendments. The District Court issued an injunction prohibiting the military authorities from interfering with the making of political speeches or the distribution of leaflets in areas of Fort Dix open to the general public, and the Court of Appeals affirmed. “

So basically this case was about the distribution of partisan election materials without prior approval. The case was upheld. It states that a military commander MAY restrict political speech as well as printed material. MAY is the key word here. Maybe it’s too many years pouring over the old NHRA rule book, but one tends to learn what words like “may” and “shall” and “must” mean.

The ruling goes on to leave us with this gem:

“As to the regulation governing the distribution of literature, a military commander may disapprove only those publications that he perceives clearly endanger the loyalty, discipline, or morale of troops on the base under his command, and, while this regulation might in the future be applied irrationally, invidiously, or arbitrarily, none of the respondents even submitted any material for review, and the noncandidate respondents had been excluded from the post because they had previously distributed literature there without attempting to obtain approval.”

Now you can watch Governor Palin’s speech to the troops, but unless you are a complete loon, or a member of the Obama Administration, a Governor thanking her troops for their hard work and sacrifice is hardly “dangerous” to the troops loyalty, discipline or moral! In fact, from the loud cheers she elicited from the troops, I’d say the Governor was a great boost to moral!

So where does this leave us?

Well, as we know, Linda Kellen Biegel is a seriously deranged woman void of all reason or self-restraint. So you can bet she is cooking up a way to file this ethics complaint! Of course, she may not do it herself. She has many surrogates like Andree McLeod or Sondra Tompkins, or Theodore “Chip” Thoma!

But her MO will be the same as always. Before she even files the paperwork, or gives it to a “designated hitter” to file, the details will be all over the internet. All of the various blogs will put it out, and the three hate bloggers from the Huffington Post, Amanda Coyne (whose husband conveniently works at the Anchorage Daily News), Jeanne Devon (AKMuckraker) and Shannyn Moore will most certain have star placement over at Arianna Huffington’s rag.

You know, these people are why we cannot get good and decent men and woman to take part in the democratic process in our country. Just as soon as a real leader emerges, folks like Biegel, and the rest pull out their tattered copies of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” and go to town.

It seems that all liberals are given a copy of the old communist “community organizer” from Chicago’s book, at birth.

So far, these miscreants have cost the state of Alaska around $300,000 and have run up a personal legal tab of around a half million dollars for Governor Palin.

What can you do?

Get involved! This woman is an official blogger for the Democrat National Committee. She is also endorsed by the democrat party of Alaska. And enjoys a premium placement on their official website.

Conservatives 4 Palin has a great list of contacts that you can get in touch with. One can certainly ask them if this sort of economic terrorism is something they really want to endorse. Or for that matter, see it used against them in the future. More and more conservatives are reading Alinsky these days!

You can also help spread the word through friends and on the various blogs you frequent. If nothing else, when these loons try to come out with this “complaint” everyone will already know that it is bogus!

And one thing more, this isn’t just about Governor Palin. These aren’t the only underhanded democrat operatives out there. Even if you aren’t one of Governor Palin’s strong supporters, remember this, if they’ll do this to her, sooner or later, they’ll do it to someone you do care about! This sort of character assassination and economic terrorism is standard operating procedure for the modern democrat party. Just ask David Axlerod or Rahm Emanuel!

This is as good a time as any to draw a line in the sand! Enough is indeed enough!

I’ll leave you with this thought from Pastor Martin Niemöller the German anti-Nazi activist:

“In Germany they first came for the Communists,

and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.

Then they came for the Jews,

and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for the trade unionists,

and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Catholics,

and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.

Then they came for me —

and by that time no one was left to speak up”.

It is a time to choose.

Sarah Palin 14…Ankle Biters O

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 7, 2009

It’s a sad day over at the Huffington Post and left wing blogs like Mudflats and Celtic Diva’s Blue Oasis. You see, despite their best efforts to smear Alaska Governor Sarah Palin with more than a baker’s dozen of phony ethics complaints since the start of the year, all of their efforts have completely failed.

The latest complaint to be dismissed was incredibly ridiculous. It revolved around the fact that Governor Palin, in sub zero weather, had the temerity to wear a jacket when she attended the final day of the Tesoro Iron Dog Race!

The Iron Dog is the world’s longest and most difficult snow machine race. (snowmobile to us in the lower 48) The Governor was waiting at the finish line in both her official capacity as well as the wife of one of the competitors, her husband Todd, and his partner, Scott Davis. The Iron Dog is a grueling 1,971 mile race through some of the toughest conditions one can imagine. It is a true manly-man sport! Palin and Davis are two of the best, having 11 wins between them in the event.

To tell you how tough this race is, last year Todd finished with a game fourth place effort after a crash slowed him down, and he rode the last 400 miles with a broken arm.

So what was the issue?

Well, you see Governor Palin was wearing an Arctic Cat jacket. Arctic Cat makes snow machines and yes, they sponsor Todd and Scott.

Oh the humanity of it all!

And so, another baseless and comical ethics complaint was born from the ankle biters on the left.

This particular complaint was filed by a nasty woman named Linda Kellen Biegel. She is hostile to Governor Palin, and runs a website, Celtic Diva’s Blue Oasis, that is dedicated to not only spreading this woman’s hate for Governor Palin, but also coordinating attacks against her with other bloggers and members of the press.

Biegel who, according to her own website, is an official blogger for the DNC, has helped publicize the numerous phony harassment complaints against the Governor. In fact, the woman is so notorious for doing this, and then crowing on her website about it, that she actually inspired a group of talented conservative bloggers to create a very funny parody website that is spot on in it’s humorous depiction of her.

Now by herself, Linda Kellen Biegel would just be a sad character with a lot of time on her hands. But Biegel is far from being alone in this.

One has to understand that in Alaska, the far left is a small, but very well coordinated, and funded group. And they have some very big help. Lets meet just some of the players who participate in these smear tactics.

There is fellow hate blogger Jeanne Devon. Devon runs a particularly nasty website know as Mudflats. Now unlike Biegel, Devon didn’t have the guts to blog under her real name. Instead she chose to spread hate and lies under the alias AKMuckraker. This woman is so hateful in her approach, a democrat, Alaska Representative Mike Doogan outed her to the media. Devon and Biegel are very much the coordinators of the attacks against Governor Palin. Along with a couple of smaller bloggers. And yes, they have even went as far as recruiting folks to help file complaints against the Governor.

Now in Alaska, the ethics board doesn’t put out press releases when complaints are filed. They do however report the finding of all investigations once complete.

Of course, that wouldn’t help the democrat bloggers one bit. So they have help from so-called reporters.

Meet Amanda Coyne. Coyne is a college professor who…wait for it… teaches journalism. She also runs a for profit website that is pretty much dedicated to causing Governor Palin grief. Coyne, who claims to be Governor Palin’s “first official biographer”, also writes for the far left Huffington Post. Now the Post isn’t all that important, so Coyne has an ace-in-the-hole, her husband, Tony Hopfinger, who works for the Anchorage Daily News.

Hopfinger, who also freelances, makes sure the ADN is full of less than flattering stories about the Governor. This writer, and others have had issues with the Anchorage paper for some time.

The ADN had the habit of allowing absolutely anything, no matter how disgusting, to be said about Palin in their online comments section, while deleting supportive comments. After some investigating, we found that many of the most hateful comments, from people claiming to be Alaskans, were actually bloggers, and a newspaper columnist or two from the lower 48.

It got so bad that a group of readers actually promised protests and advertiser boycotts if they didn’t clean up their act, which they have since done, to some extent.

Now helping out Amanda Coyne, is fellow HuffPo writer, Shannyn Moore. The malicious content of her writing speaks for itself. Moore has the worst case of Palin Derangement Syndrome imaginable.

Why are people like Coyne, Hopfinger, and Moore important to these hate bloogers like Biegel and Devon, and the DNC’s plans? Well, remember, the State of Alaska isn’t in the habit of publishing complaints when they are filed. And yet, most of the nation’s left wing blogosphere knows about the complaints, often before they are filed.

This is where the HuffPo writers come in. They are tasked with writing story after story of how supposedly corrupt Governor Palin is. And of course, the rest of the media picks up on these stories and runs wild.

And while the complaint makes national and even international news, the fact that it was thrown out, and completely ridiculous, rarely gets reported. This is business as usual for democrats. It’s how they work.

There are other serial ethics complaint filers, like Andree McLeod. It is said that she is angry because the Governor wouldn’t give her a job. And who am I to say different.

Like a lot of the left wing, she claims to be a victim of something, and says she would file many more ethics complaints, if not for the fact “they” might get her. And yet, she is constantly talking about filing more ethics complaints!

Here’s an idea of the type of complaints filed:

McLeod filed an ethics complaint because Governor Palin announced she had been chosen as John McCain’s running mate on her website.

I kid you not!

She also complained because the Governor attended a Republican dinner.

McLeod has also anointed herself as the “cleavage cop” in the state of Alaska. In an e-mail to the administration commissioner Annette Kreitzer , McLeod complained that she was “astounded at the amount and magnitude of cleavage being exhibited by female employees in State of Alaska offices these days. Upon entering an office, I’m initially embarrassed when subjected to such low cut tops. …The negative impact this all has on the business I have to conduct is not to my benefit. I leave the office feeling offended.”

Seriously.

McLeod then hounded Mike Nizich, the governor’s chief of staff, she noted, “That’s a lot of pressure to put on guys, whether they are members of the public or colleagues, to just ignore the fact that these women are wearing tops with breasts popping out. … and not cross the lines.”

According to Eddie Burke, of the Eddie Burke radio show, McLeod was recently seen dining with Alaska Democrat State Senator Bill Wielechowski. Wielechowski has denied any collaboration with McLeod though.

Sure, OK.

While McLeod has filed some really hilarious complaints, she is not alone. There is a fellow named Chip Thoma, who has complained because the tour buses drive by the Governor’s Mansion, and even complained because the Governor’s young daughter, Piper, set up a lemonade stand!

Chip has unsuccessfully sued former Governor Walter J. Hickel saying that Governor was “out to get him”.

Now as I said earlier in this piece, all of the would either by funny, or pathetic, depending on your mood, if it wasn’t so malicious.

Thanks to these complaints, and the Barack Obama initiated “troopergate” fiasco, Governor Palin, who is not a wealthy politician, has had to start a defense fund to help pay her legal bills. And yes, the ankle biters filed a complaint against her for doing this, as well!

These bogus harassment complaints have also cost the State of Alaska around $300,000, prompting many Alaskans to call for a change in the law that would force the folks who file these sort of harassment complaints to have to pay for them.

But what is the end game in all of this?

Well, as I mentioned in an earlier piece exposing George Soros’ connection to the ethics complaint CREW filed against the McCain-Palin campaign, which itself was thrown out by the FEC, this is standard practice for the democrat party. Groups like CREW, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, use the legal system to harass their opponents. It’s one of the “Rules” set forth by Chicago communist Saul Alinsky, whose book on community organizing, “Rules For Radicals” sits on the night stand in most democrat politician’s and activist’s bedrooms, whether they admit it, or not.

With Governor Palin, the end game is even clearer.

Unlike most politicians, who talk a good game about ethics and reform, Governor Palin has a solid record of actually doing it. She actually walks the walk, and doesn’t just talk the talk.

As Palin biographer Recaldo Ochoa points out in his book, “Sarah Palin, Poised To Become America’s First Female President”, Governor Palin was a reformer from the very start. In her earliest days in politics Palin came upon a situation that she felt wasn’t right. Her friend, and the person who actually talked her into running for her city council spot, Nick Carney owned a waste management service. Not a problem in itself, but he was pushing through an ordinance that would have given his company a monopoly on waste pickup in and around the Wasilla community. Friendships aside, Palin felt this was wrong, and actively fought to make sure this didn’t happen.

This sort of basic common sense would follow her into the Mayor’s office.

Now once she had served her two term limit, Sarah Palin looked for another challenge, and ran for Lt Governor. She lost. But she also impressed a lot of folks in Alaska. The Governor, Frank Murkowski, saw fit to appoint her as Chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. A top position in the oil rich state.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before Palin found there were some serious problems in her agency. Two of the highest ranking players in the Alaska GOP, party head Randy Ruedrich and former Attorney general Gregg Renkes had some issues. Renkes had some conflicts of interest with a coal contract, and Ruedrich was basically blowing off his job in favor of doing party business.

This is the exact sort of thing that makes the average American distrust all politicians.

Palin took this to her boss, the Governor, who was less than receptive. Now, she could have just went on, and continued to work as head of the agency. After all, this was a good paying six figure job. And her star was really on the rise. She could have “played ball” and it would have been smooth sailing. She would have been set for life.

Sarah Palin didn’t do that. She resigned from her job and took these people on. For most folks, this would have been career suicide. But not for Sarah Palin. Both Renkes and Ruedrich were forced to resign from the agency, and Ruedrich was fined $12,000, the largest fine of it’s kind in state history.

Palin went on to challenge Governor Murkowski in the Republican primary, beating him in a landslide. She then went on to defeat popular former Governor, Tony Knowles.

The point is, for nearly two decades Sarah Palin has been a true, honest, and ethical politician. Someone who doesn’t care who the person is, or what party they belong to. If she sees something that isn’t right, she will point it out and work hard get it stopped.

Of course, this sort of person is not a welcomed sight on the national scene. At least not by the average politician!

Someone like Sarah Palin is a direct threat to any politician, no matter the party, who is corrupt.

The establishment in both parties see her as a direct threat.

So here come the ethics complaints hard and heavy. From the so called “troopergate” complaint that was encouraged along by Barack Obama, to all of these harassment complaints filed and coordinated by the many left wing bloggers, to the phony complaint filed by CREW, the democrats, and I suspect some worried Republicans, are doing everything they can to take away the reformer mantle from Governor Palin. To basically take it off her resume.

Don’t fall for this sort of nonsense. It’s just dirty politics at it’s worse.

This one is an easy choice to make!
