Fresh From Sarah Palin’s Latest Public Kickin’, Obama Looks To Meet With BP CEO, Tony Hayward

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 11, 2010

Well, well, well. Looks like once again, Sarah Palin tells Obama to jump, and he asks “how high?” Fresh off an epic online ass kicking, as only Sarah Palin can deliver, it looks like Barack Obama is going to take Sarah’s strongly worded advice, and talk to Tony Hayward, the CEO of British Petroleum.

Jake Tapper reports:

President Obama Likely to Meet with BP CEO Hayward Next Week

When BP CEO Tony Hayward comes to Washington, DC, next week, he will almost certainly be summoned to meet with President Obama at the White House, sources tell ABC News.

Though no final decision has been made, White House officials are planning to meet with Hayward, and the president will also likely have a few words to say to him.

Hayward is scheduled to appear on June 17 at a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce oversight and investigations subcommittee.

You can read more here.

Obviously, the Obama regime has to kinda downplay this, and do the maybe game. After all, it must be frustrating to know that once again, Sarah Palin was right, and has forced Obama to react to her, …. once again.

Bein’ President is hard and junk, huh?

Meanwhile, celebrated “Profile in Courage” Mitt Romney finally came out of his coma to announce that Barack Obama is no leader!

Thanks Mitt, you can go back to sleep now, we got this one.

Unbelievable.

Sarah Palin Tells Obama “Less Talkin’ .. More Kickin’” Offers To Take On BP And The Oil Spill

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 9, 2010

And now, I’ve noticed a pattern with our opponent, and maybe you have, too. We’ve all heard his dramatic speeches before devoted followers, and there is much to like and admire about our opponent.

But listening to him speak, it’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or even a reform, not even in the State Senate.

This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word “victory,” except when he’s talking about his own campaign.

But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed, when the roar of the crowd fades away, when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot…

When that happens, what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet?

The answer — the answer is to make government bigger, and take more of your money, and give you more orders from Washington, and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world.

~ Sarah Palin

Remarks to the 2008 Republican National Convention

St. Paul, Minnesota

September 3, 2008

As you no doubt have heard, our esteemed President, Barack Obama, in all of his beta male gloriousness announced this week:

I was down there a month ago, before most of these talkin’ heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there, standin’ in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be. and I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.

Of course, this impressed absolutely no one, and lost all of it’s manly- manliness, when Obama announced on Monday that he was gonna convene a panel of experts in order to figure out whose ass to kick!

On the other hand, Sarah Palin knows exactly whose ass to kick, does so in spectacular fashion:

Less Talkin’, More Kickin

50 days in, and we’ve just learned another shocking revelation concerning the Obama administration’s response to the Gulf oil spill. In an interview aired this morning, President Obama admitted that he hasn’t met with or spoken directly to BP’s CEO Tony Hayward. His reasoning: “Because my experience is, when you talk to a guy like a BP CEO, he’s gonna say all the right things to me. I’m not interested in words. I’m interested in actions.

First, to the “informed and enlightened” mainstream media: in all the discussions you’ve had with the White House about the spill, did it not occur to you before today to ask how the CEO-to-CEO level discussions were progressing to remedy this tragedy? You never cease to amaze. (Kind of reminds us of the months on end when you never bothered to ask if the President was meeting with General McChrystal to talk about our strategy in Afghanistan.)

This is a twofer. She gets to kick both Obama and the media square in the ass! Sadly, both are lost causes, and just need to go away. It’s simply incredible that Obama hasn’t spoken, not even once, to BP’s CEO. How the hell do you not call up Tony Hayward and at least say something? Even better, as Allahpundit over at Hot Air points out, Obama can’t even give a real explanation why he hasn’t spoken to Hayward!

This truly is a guy who shouldn’t have a job that is more complicated than asking “would you like some fries with that?

Second, to fellow baffled Americans: this revelation is further proof that it bodes well to have some sort of executive experience before occupying the Oval Office (as if the painfully slow response to the oil spill, confusion of duties, finger-pointing, lack of preparedness, and inability to grant local government simple requests weren’t proof enough). The current administration may be unaware that it’s the President’s duty, meeting on a CEO-to-CEO level with Hayward, to verify what BP reports. In an interview a few weeks ago with Greta Van Susteren, I noted that based on my experience working with oil execs as an oil regulator and then as a Governor, you must verify what the oil companies claim – because their perception of circumstances and situations dealing with public resources and public trust is not necessarily shared by those who own America’s public resources and trust. I was about run out of town in Alaska for what critics decried at the time as my “playing hardball with Big Oil,” and those same adversaries (both shortsighted Repubs and Dems) continue to this day to try to discredit my administration’s efforts in holding Big Oil accountable to operate ethically and responsibly.

As Ronald Reagan would say: “trust, but verify.” Sarah learned this lesson early on when dealing with Big Oil.

Mr. President: with all due respect, you have to get involved, sir. The priorities and timeline of an oil company are not the same as the public’s. You cannot outsource the cleanup and the responsibility and the trust to BP and expect that the legitimate interests of Americans adversely affected by this spill will somehow be met.

White House: have you read this morning’s Washington Post? Not to pile it on BP, but there’s an extensive report chronicling the company’s troubling history:

BP has had more high-profile accidents than any other company in recent years. And now, with the disaster in the gulf, independent experts say the pervasiveness of the company’s problems, in multiple locales and different types of facilities, is striking.

They are a recurring environmental criminal and they do not follow U.S. health safety and environmental policy,’ said Jeanne Pascal, a former EPA lawyer who led its BP investigations.”

And yet just 10 days prior to the explosion, the Obama administration’s regulators gave the oil rig a pass, and last year the Obama administration granted BP a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) exemption for its drilling operation.

But … but … but, I thought it was all Bush’s fault!!

These decisions and the resulting spill have shaken the public’s confidence in the ability to safely drill. Unless government appropriately regulates oil developments and holds oil executives accountable, the public will not trust them to drill, baby, drill. And we must! Or we will be even more beholden to, and controlled by, dangerous foreign regimes that supply much of our energy. This has been a constant refrain from me. As Governor of Alaska, I did everything in my power to hold oil companies accountable in order to prove to the federal government and to the nation that Alaska could be trusted to further develop energy rich land like ANWR and NPR-A. I hired conscientious Democrats and Republicans (because this sure shouldn’t be a partisan issue) to provide me with the best advice on how we could deal with what was a corrupt system of some lawmakers and administrators who were hesitant to play hardball with some in the oil field business. (Remember the Alaska lawmakers, public decision-makers, and business executives who ended up going to jail as a result of the FBI’s investigations of oily corruption.)

As the aforementioned article notes, BP’s operation in Alaska would hurt our state and waste public resources if allowed to continue. That’s why my administration created the Petroleum Systems Integrity Office (PSIO) when we saw proof of improper maintenance of oil infrastructure in our state. We had to verify. And that’s why we instituted new oversight and held BP and other oil companies financially accountable for poor maintenance practices. We knew we could partner with them to develop resources without pussyfooting around with them. As a CEO, it was my job to look out for the interests of Alaskans with the same intensity and action as the oil company CEOs looked out for the interests of their shareholders.

I learned firsthand the way these companies operate when I served as chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (AOGCC). I ended up resigning in protest because my bosses (the Governor and his chief of staff at the time) wouldn’t support efforts to clean up the corruption involving improper conflicts of interest with energy companies that the state was supposed to be watching. (I wrote about this valuable learning experience in my book, “Going Rogue“.) I felt guilty taking home a big paycheck while being reduced to sitting on my thumbs – essentially rendered ineffective as a supervisor of a regulatory agency in charge of nearly 20% of the U.S. domestic supply of energy.

Sarah talks about her experience both as Alaska’s chief energy and environmental regulator and as Governor in dealing with Big Oil in her book. If you want the unbiased, unvarnished story of how Sarah dealt with the oil companies in Alaska, I recommend Kay Cashman’s book Sarah Takes On Big Oil, which is available at Amazon.com, it tells you all you need to know about Sarah’s ability to kick ass!

My experience (though, granted, I got the message loud and clear during the campaign that my executive experience managing the fastest growing community in the state, and then running the largest state in the union, was nothing compared to the experiences of a community organizer) showed me how government officials and oil execs could scratch each others’ backs to the detriment of the public, and it made me ill. I ran for Governor to fight such practices. So, as a former chief executive, I humbly offer this advice to the President: you must verify. That means you must meet with Hayward. Demand answers.

In the interview today, the President said: “I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.”

Please, sir, for the sake of the Gulf residents, reach out to experts who have experience holding oil companies accountable. I suggested a few weeks ago that you start with Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources, led by Commissioner Tom Irwin. Having worked with Tom and his DNR and AGIA team led by Marty Rutherford, I can vouch for their integrity and expertise in dealing with Big Oil and overseeing its developments. We’ve all lived and worked through the Exxon-Valdez spill. They can help you. Give them a call. Or, what the heck, give me a call.

And, finally, Mr. President, please do not punish the American public with any new energy tax in response to this tragedy. Just because BP and federal regulators screwed up that doesn’t mean the rest of us should get punished with higher taxes at the pump and attached to everything petroleum products touch.

– Sarah Palin

The Bottom line is Sarah Palin is a true leader, and a true reformer, and this is her area of expertise. Will Obama call her?

Sadly, no.

That would be a blow his fragile, but king sized ego, couldn’t bear. It’s a shame too, because Sarah would be able to ride herd on this situation, and do some real kickin’.

President Obama, give Sarah a call, we need some actual leadership here

Keeping with Sarah’s theme of less talk, more action, I’d like to send out a long distance dedication to Obama. Take it away Mr Presley:

I sit here and wonder where the GOP establishment show ponies, like Mitt Romney are in all of this. All of the “good old boys” have been conspicuous by their absence.

Sarah Palin Speaks, An Incredible (And Delicious) Crazed Stalker Update, BP, And The Inconvenient Truth about Dave Weigel

Posted by Gary P Jackson on May 28, 2010

As promised, a complete update on what is going on in Sarah Palin’s world. We were writing this earlier when we got yet more wild news, and felt we needed to get out it out there. Believe me, this was worth the wait!

To recap:

Sarah Palin has a new neighbor. Stacy Drake details that wonderful moment here.

Washington Post hack, Dave Weigel, proves to the world he’s a total douchebag, as we wrote here.

Ruth Marcus felt left out of the douchebaggery, as Stacy Drake points out here.

We found out that Joe McGinniss has a habit of stalking subjects of his so-called “journalism” and betrayed an innocent man, who is now in prison for murder, after being paid to help the guy, and pretending to be his friend. This one is a must read, here.

As Stacy Drake reported, here, things got even weirder with what we know is a load of BS, supposedly coming from the Palin’s neighbor.

OK, With that out of the way, let’s get to some new stuff, as of Thursday night.

Wednesday Sarah did a couple of radio interviews, starting with Glenn Beck:

The big news coming out of this interview is the fact Sarah will be appearing at Glenn Beck’s 8/28 Restoring Honor celebration in Washington, D.C.. You can bet she will add greatly to the event.

We all loved George Bush. The guy wasn’t perfect, but overall a decent man. Our biggest gripe with President Bush is he never fought back against his haters. Until Sarah came along, I had never seen so much hatred aimed at one individual. Of course, that’s all the left has, a burning hatred for anyone and anything that doesn’t conform to their diseased ideology, and of course, they lie about the subject of their hatred. If somehow hatred and lies were outlawed, Marxist-democrats would simply cease to exist.

The left can’t compete in the marketplace of ideas, so all they have is their hate to fuel them.

Bush would never fight back, something that frustrated his loyal supporters to no end. Even when they made movies, wrote plays and books, all detailing their fantasies of Bush’s assasination, Bush said nothing. Can you imagine that thin skinned loser we have in the White House now being so strong? Me neither.

Bush thought it beneath the dignity of the Office of the President to engage in that sort of thing. Bush respected the presidency so much, he wouldn’t make it about him. While that is commendable to no end, the entire nation would have been to the better had Bush spent just a little bit of time fighting these rotten leftists.

Sarah Palin doesn’t have this problem. She is a born fighter. Sarah Palin is a fearless warrior. She doesn’t take nothin’ off of nobody. I think that’s why Sarah resonates with Americans so strongly. America loves a fighter, and loves a winner. Sarah Palin is both. America respects a fighter. America NEEDS a fighter!

After Glenn Beck’s show, Sarah was a guest on the Sean Hannity radio show. Of course they talked about her pervert stalker, and the nonsense surrounding all of that, but they also talked policy, especially energy policy, and of course British Petroleum, and the oil spill.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Just to remind readers, Sarah has first hand experience in dealing with exactly the kind of situation those in the Gulf are facing. As an oil and gas regulator, Sarah was tough on the oil companies, and as Governor, she got even tough, creating an oversight agency to keep a better eye on things.

Sarah ended the oil companies’ cozy relationships with government regulators, and officials. In fact, she was so tough on the oil companies, that at one point she was accused of being anti-business. And yet, the lying media tries to paint her as an oil company shill. I imagine Sarah has a good laugh on that one!

Back to McGinnis, the perv, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly went off on him on Wednesday as well.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about "Megyn Kelly Takes On McGinniss", posted with vodpod

De-licious!

Now for some updates on McGinniss:

If you remember, Ben Smith over at Politico shared an e-mail from McGinniss’s son, that intimated the old man had lost it. Now Ben reported this as straight up fact. Today he is backpedaling and claiming it was sarcasm.

I’m not a trained “journalist” or writer, but I know enough to let people know, when quoting someone else, whether we are dealing with sarcasm, or not. After all, Smith is the one who had the contact with Joe Jr., not us. Smith has had further contact with Joe Jr., and as Stacy Drake reported in her “neighbor” report above, Joe Jr’s credibility isn’t a hell of a lot better than his creepy stalker dad’s!

Let’s take Ben Smith at his word though. There is still plenty of proof that McGinniss is a creepy stalker, and most certainly hung up on Sarah Palin. We told you that McGinniss tried to bid on dinner with Sarah, offering up $60,000. There is a lot more.

When Sarah was on her book tour, freak boy followed her around. He “broke” the big story that yes, Sarah Palin flies on airplanes. Just how deranged is this idiot? He went crazy reporting on the fact that during Sarah’s book tour, she wasn’t on the Bus 24/7. This “astonishing revelation” was, of course, reported breathlessly by the lamestream media, showing what morons the entire bunch are.

As normal people understood, …. they could actually read her daily schedule….and understand the words….Sarah’s schedule was hectic. Many days she had two or three signings in one day, and many times these signings were quite a distance a part. Far enough apart that there was physically no way one could drive there in the time allotted to travel. It was beyond ridiculous for anyone to make something of this, but this is how pathetic these people are.

Besides shadowing Sarah on the book signing trail, McGinniss also showed up in Alaska, ignoring all of the “no trespassing” signs (which makes the story below even funnier) and tried to give Sarah one of his books.

Knowing all we know about Joe McGinniss, so far, it’s safe to say he’s a freak, a creep, and a stalker. But it gets better.

Josh Painter reported today that some reporters came calling on Joe:

Joe McGinness to ABC News: “Get off my property!

ABC News discovers that stalker Joe McGinness is also a hypocrite:

McGinniss, who is being accused of invading the Palins’ privacy, himself claimed that his was being invaded when ABC News knocked at his door to get a comment.

Get off, you’re trespassing,” McGinniss said through his window. “I am going to have to call the Wasilla police. Get off my property, now, I am going to put in the call.” 

It’s not your property, Joe. You’re just renting.

This little stunt of yours was a lot of fun for you and your leftist fellow travelers when you thought you could intimidate Gov. Palin and her family wasn’t it? But when the shoe went on the other foot, you sure lost your cool fast! That’s the thing with “progressives.” They love to dish it out, but they can’t take it.

How delicious is THAT! What a jackass this guy is. Josh has more, with video, here.

Bluegrass Pundit adds this little tidbit to the mix:

ABC News reporter Neal Karlinsky goes to the house McGinniss is living in and tries to talk to him. McGinniss tells Karlinsky to “get off my property,” and threatens to call the Wasilla police! He has now even posted “No Trespassing” Signs on the property!

This degenerate had absolutely no problem ignoring Sarah Palin’s no trespassing signs in his deranged pursuits, but expects people to respect the ones he’s thrown up. This reminds me of an interviewer who cornered Obama’s buddy, murdering domestic terrorist William Ayers to ask some questions. Now bear in mind, this is a guy who bombed police stations, and is married to a convicted cop killer. What do you think happened? That tool called the police, of course! Incredibly, they even showed up.The left has no shame.

McGinniss is a real loser, for sure, but this story just gets better. (Or worse, depending on how you score it) .

Rich Clowther at Conservatives4Palin deliciously skewers our buddy Dave Weigel, but also reports some not so shocking detail on who this loser McGinniss hangs with when he is in Alaska. While absolutely wearing Weigel out, Clowther writes:

Well the Palins see things differently, Mr Weigel. They have a different perspective, one borne of distressing, real life, personal experience.

They and their children have lived through the unprecedented harassment of the last 20 months: the email hacking which led to frightening phone calls to their eldest daughter in the middle of the night; the 26 ethics complaints which stifled the Palin Administration and came to nought; the deliberately malicious attempt to cause controversy and split a family with fabrication about divorce; the attacks on their most vulnerable child; the lie that the Palins were under federal investigation for embezzlement; the burningn of their church; the hate speak Trig Troofing conspiracies of Andrew Sullivan and Jesse Griffin and a notorious European blog; the misogynistic invective of a local Alaska Democratic Party office holder…. they’ve lived through all that and more David Weigel… and could perhaps be forgiven that they seem inclined to be wary, less magnanimous than you, less inclined to exercise equilibrium.

When Joe McGinniss moves in next door they don’t see that action as divorced from the context of the previous 20 months, as you appear to do, Mr Weigel.

Sure they remember that as an investigative journalist McGinniss has been critical of their mother… but, unlike you, perhaps they also remember who Joe’s friends are, with whom Joe chooses to socialize when he visits Alaska:

I [Jesse Griffin] found the table that our host Phil Munger had reserved for us and sat down with some of his other guests, who I did not know, but who turned out to be fans of both IM and Mudflats. (Oh did I mention that AKM was with me?)

Soon I was introduced to author Joe McGinniss, who is up here researching HIS Sarah Palin book, and who also turned out to be a huge fan of both AKM’s and I. (I swear I will NEVER get used to hearing that.)

Mr. McGinniss entertained us with tales of the colorful characters he has met while doing research for the book he is currently working on and back in the 1970’s for his novel Going to Extremes.

Readers will wish to avoid opening this link to theimmoralminority but they (and the Palins) know all about those with whom McGinniss hangs out,

• The liberal Alaska blogger and Palin-hater Jesse Griffin (who attacks the Palin family every day, and tells his readers he knows that Sarah Palin is not the mother of her fifth child, and who advocates the even more lunatic conspiracy that there are in fact three different versions of her fifth child)

• The local Alaska Democratic Party office holder and Palin hater Phil Munger (who tells his readers that Governor Palin is a slut and a whore)

• The Alaska based Huffington Post correspondent and Palin hater Jeanne Devon (who has accused the Palins of being tax cheats, and who is BFF with Alaska based blogger Shannyn Moore, the person who announced mendaciously on MSNBC that the Palins were under federal investigation)
… and knowing all this about Joe McGinniss and the “despicable” company he keeps, when he turns up next door the Palins instantly feel less safe in their own home, Mr Weigel.

Ahhh, the circle of life, and dirtbags, is complete.

You can read the whole thing here. It’s worth it, just to read the Weigel take down!

New readers may not be familiar with all of these names, but they make up Barack Obama’s hand picked Alaska Mafia. © These people were hand picked by Barack Obama’s then Senate Chief-Of-Staff, and now White House adviser, Pete Rouse, who still coordinates attacks on Sarah, from these degenerate bloggers in Alaska. Rouse is an Alaskan, like several other Obama staffers, including the infamous Mao lover, Anita Dunn.

These reprobates and malcontents, are the people who were given access to the Huffington Post, and MSNBC, so they could publish lies, and hate with ease. They were also the ones who recruited people to file all of the bogus ethics complaints against Sarah, all of which she was found innocent of any wrong doing.

Of course, these are the people who cost the Alaska taxpayers $2 million dollars, as the state had to investigate all of this nonsense. This was one of the reasons Sarah pulled the plug on her job as Governor. The people of Alaska simply didn’t deserve to be robbed of their hard earned money by a bunch of Marxist filth.

We continually write about the Alaska Mafia © but if you want a good background on these people, what they are about, and see the video Obama really doesn’t want you to see, you can go here.

Our buddy Doug Brady, also from C4P has even more to add, going back to the house deal:

The claim that the Palins owe their neighbor money is exceedingly difficult to believe on several levels. McGinniss claims the Palins owe the neighbor for “renovations” she performed for them. Really? Along with a few buddies, Todd built the Palins’ home. The Palins are currently adding a 6,000 square foot addition with Todd heavily involved in the construction. In addition, Todd has managed to put up a rather large fence in just a couple days. Todd Palin doesn’t strike me as someone who would need help with “renovations” from an absentee neighbor. He seems to be managing just fine without said neighbor’s renovating expertise, wouldn’t you say?

Moreover, are we really expected to believe that the Palins stiffed their neighbor for a bill and we’re only finding out about it now? We’re to believe that the neighbor was so angry over this that she sought out Joe McGinniss to get payback instead of running straight to the media (or at least the leftist bloggers in Alaska)? She could have been a folk hero to Keith Olbermann’s seven viewers. But if she was really interested in collecting money from the Palins, she could have simply answered her phone.

[…]

To sum this up, the Palins rented the house last summer to avoid the very situation in which they find themselves this summer. Further, the Palins repeatedly tried to contact the neighbor all winter to rent the house again this summer or, if possible, buy the property. Despite these efforts, the Palins could not get the absentee neighbor to return their calls. Hmmmmmm. Now I’ll admit to having no bill collecting experience but, it seems to me, that if someone owed me money and they were calling me, I’d take the call. But that’s just me…

It’s pretty clear that the entire tale of the Palins owing a neighbor money for some unspecified renovations is ludicrous on its face. Does anyone seriously think the Palins don’t pay their bills? Even Ben Smith appeared to question the veracity of the neighbor’s claim by updating his post to note the Palins repeated attempts to contact her:

UPDATE: Palin told Glenn Beck yesterday that her husband had been “trying to get hold of [the neighbor] all winter long” to ask about renting or buying the place, in part “for fear of something like this happening.”

Mr. McGinniss, through his son, appears to be trying to change the subject from his bizarre behavior. Conduct which has even been criticized as “outrageously, unnecessarily intrusive” by a left-wing Palin-critic at the Washington Post. Stalking is the only accurate term to describe the following actions undertaken by Mr. McGinniss: illegally ignoring the Palin’s no trespassing signs to hand deliver books, outrageously bidding for the Ride2Recovery charity dinner so he could harass Governor Palin, chasing Governor Palin at book signing(s), and now this latest stunt.

You can read more from Doug here.

BTW, Greta has photos of the fence here.

I have to ask readers. If you had to put up with one tenth of the crap the Palins have to put up with, would you still be able to be the warrior Sarah is, and never back down? I wonder if the GOP establishment show ponies could handle it.

I’m with Glenn Beck on one thing for sure. Todd Palin deserves some sort of an award. You must know the urge to grab a few of these devils by the neck and just beat the hell out of ‘em is hard to suppress. Todd is a much better man than I, for sure. As Sarah says, he has the patience of Job.

We cheer for Sarah daily, celebrate her grit, and determination. I think we should all raise a glass every now and again, and toast Todd Palin, he’s earned it!

As delicious as all of the above is, I saved the desert for last.

Since the Washington Post’sConservative Republican Insider” Dave Weigel, decided to attack Sarah Palin for being so rude as to defend herself and her family, we’ve hit him pretty hard already, which we linked to above. We stand by the assertion that Weigel is a first class a-hole. A complete and total loser. Now, we can add scumbag and liar to his resume.

Both Red State’s Erick Erickson, and Dr Melissa Clouthier went after Weigel hard, and both smack downs are epic, but I came away with a couple of things.

Again, Weigel tries to pass himself off as the “Conservative Republican Insider.” Erickson outs the guy though. It seems that Weigel voted for Al Gore, John Kerry….who served in Vietnam, and Barack Obama. I know a lot of real Conservatives, and absolutely none of them would vote for that axis of evil.

Erickson points out that Weigel once wrote for publications funded by Nazi collaborator, and self-proclaimed “owner of the democrat party” George Soros. This is Dr Evil himself. Ian Fleming’s Ernst Stavro Blofeld come to life. If Weigel wrote for him, he’s no conservative, he’s a plant, a phony.

Erickson writes:

In fact, if you go through Dave’s archives you’ll find a slew of stories from the most recent one as I write
to others that no one on the right really cares about, but people on the left who see the right collectively as fringe will eat up. And that’s the whole point of why he’s there.

There’s nothing unique about this situation. If the job is to cover the right from “inside the conservative movement,” that’s not actually happening. It’s like they put Weigel in a gorilla costume to infiltrate some gorillas in the mist and he stumbled into the wrong camp and is now reporting on activity completely unrelated to what actually matters. Never mind that the Washington Post’s online coverage of conservatives reflects a view that gorillas are more civilized than conservatives. And never mind that Weigel’s reporting is clouded with the groupthink you get among up-and-coming self-styled thinker/journalists who live together in D.C., are out to have an impact, but have never lived outside the clique.

Insular groupthink journalism isn’t just useless because it doesn’t talk about what’s really going on, but because it only exists to coo at the pet ideas of the epistemic closure elites, usually preceded by a Media Matters press release to help direct their path.

Sure, Dave Weigel is a nice guy. But don’t treat his reporting from “inside the conservative movement” as serious when he clearly is not on the inside. He’s there because of what he wrote for publications funded by Tim Gill and George Soros, he’s there to track the fringe, to make the fringe look like the middle, and to dig in on agenda-based topics which kowtow to the narrow views of DC elites. His smarter readers know that’s the case, and are just there to enjoy the ride — the only one who seems to think otherwise is the adolescent naif Ezra Klein, late of the Center for American Progress, who doesn’t have any journalistic incentive to be objective toward the right or even passably fair.

Dr. Clouthier writes:

Like Erick, I like Dave Weigel–in the same way I liked the trained Siberian Tigers at the Sigfried and Roy show: they look interesting and exotic, but are extraordinarily dangerous–as poor Roy learned the hard way. A journalist is a wild animal with an appetite for conservative meat and should be interacted with that way–always.

I do not expect Dave to be unbiased or fair. I do not expect him to defend a conservative point-of-view, ever, and therefore, I’m not disappointed or offended when he snaps off some pithy, demeaning, diminishing remark about conservatives or conservatism generally.

When he says something sufficiently irritating, I might respond, but mostly, I suppress the urge as it’s useless. Joking at a conservative’s expense and yucking it up is easy peasy. Everyone does it. So trendy.

So no, I don’t take Dave Weigel seriously. I think he’s a gifted writer and has interesting insight. He has an sophisticated mind and I enjoy talking to him. But he’s as ideologically left as the rest, he’s just willing to lower himself to hang with the natives from time to time. And he’s welcome to do so. Conservative people treat him with more kindness because he is willing to at least publicly view conservatives as a species of human. When it comes down to it though, his reporting sounds like reports from the out-back bush.

It would be fascinating to see what conservative, inside the conservative mind, reporting would look like. Too exotic for the Washington Post, that notion. Better stick with blogs.

Fascinating stuff, for sure. You can read more here.

Weigel is a phony, a fraud. I’ve never been a fan anyway, but it’s quite aggravating to see this clown try and pass himself off as one of us. (or at least claim to cover us “from the inside”) What’s despicable though is the way he attacked Sarah Palin for simply standing up for herself and her family when being assaulted by a deranged stalker. Tells you all you need to know about Dave Weigel.

Stay tuned, I’m sure there will be more to talk about as this saga continues

Sarah Palin Puts Her Boot On The Neck Of The Obama Regime Over Gulf Oil Spill

Posted by Gary P Jackson on May 25, 2010

Our job is basically to keep the boot on the neck of British Petroleum to carry out the responsibilities that they have

~ Ken Salazar Secretary of the Interior for the Obama Regime

The above sentiment is one that has been repeated often by the Ken Salazar, the Interior Secretary for the Obama regime. It’s not the type of talk Americans are used to hearing from government officials. Of course, this is the Marxist Obama regime we are talking about here.

This is a president whose purple-shirted thugs from the SEIU show up en masse to terrorize 14 year old boys at their private home, because they disagree the kid’s father!

As we wrote earlier, Sarah Palin has focused in on the Gulf oil spill like a laser. She is actively questioning what is going on and why Obama was so slow to respond to this disaster. Being the thugs they are, rather than address these issues, the regime attacks the messenger. The Obama regime’s Minister of Propaganda, spokesclown Robert Gibbs, came out babbling that Sarah should “get slightly more informed as to what’s going on in and around oil drilling in this country.” I hate to tell this nimrod, but Sarah Palin has forgotten more about the oil and natural gas business than anyone in the Obama regime will ever know.

Since this the route they are going, Sarah has just put her very stylish boot on the neck of the Obama regime.

Big Oil: Learning from Alaska’s Experience

Many Americans want a serious discussion about what can be done to finally tackle the Gulf Coast oil spill. Unfortunately, yesterday White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs used his appearance on “Face the Nation” to deflect from the needed discussion about solutions as he suggested that I should “get slightly more informed as to what’s going on in and around oil drilling in this country.

Mr. Gibbs’ comments were in response to something I said last weekend in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.” In the course of discussing the administration’s failure to get to grips with the oil spill, I pointed out that the media was rather silent on asking if there was a connection between the White House’s hands-off response to the spill and the undisputed fact that Barack Obama was BP’s top recipient of both PAC and individual money for the last 20 years. Please note that I never claimed there was a conspiratorial connection; rather, I was saying that it’s odd that so few in the media have asked that question. In fact, I believe Major Garrett is one of the few reporters to pursue the issue. You can be sure that if this were a Republican administration, at the very least the media would be asking that question nonstop.

As for getting “informed” about oil drilling: I’m confident that in the course of my chairmanship of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (AOGCC) and the U.S.’s Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC), and my work as governor of our nation’s huge oil producing state, I’ve learned enough to be able to say with some certainty that the White House’s response to this crisis leaves something to be desired. I also believe that the White House should spend all of its time finding solutions to the enormous oil gush problem.

The Obama administration claims that it “will not rest until we get this situation under control,” but in practice it’s evident that it must do more to stop a potential environmental disaster from happening. U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen probably summed it up best when he described the Obama Administration’s approach to this crisis as “keeping a close watch” while BP is tackling the problem – at the company’s own pace.

While the Administration watches from the sidelines, the Gulf Coast states face some potential disaster. This raises serious questions. Should it really take nine whole days before the Administration asked the Department of Defense for help in deploying equipment needed for the extreme depth spill site? Why is Governor Jindal still waiting, 35 days later, for material needed to tackle the oil spill to protect the coast’s environment and for federal approval to build offshore sand barriers to protect his state’s coast line? Is it correct that the Coast Guard was initially unwilling to burn off the oil for fear of causing air pollution (which would have been far less harmful than the current water pollution)?

These questions all require answers. In the meantime, let me make a constructive suggestion to help the White House out of its current impasse. They should reach out to the best oil and gas team in the nation and tap into its expertise. I know just the team: Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources, led by Commissioner Tom Irwin. Having worked with Tom and his DNR team as Governor, I can vouch for their expertise and their integrity in dealing with Big Oil and overseeing its developments.

This team’s (and Alaska’s PSIO team’s) expertise on oil spill issues is particularly relevant. We all lived and worked through the Exxon oil spill, and we all committed to the principle that this would never happen again in Alaska’s waters, at least not on our watch. That’s why we created the Petroleum Systems Integrity Office (PSIO) when we saw proof of improper maintenance of oil infrastructure in our state. And that’s why we instituted new oversight and held BP and other oil companies financially accountable for poor maintenance practices. And that’s why we cracked down on unethical and unsound practices by oil companies and their contractors that operate in Alaska. And that’s why I filed a Friend-of-the-Court brief against Exxon’s interests for its decades-old responsibility to compensate victims adversely affected by the Exxon-Valdez oil spill. None of these actions made us popular with oil company management. (In fact, Commissioner Irwin received a message from a North Slope oil company employee that summed up their view of our efforts well: the message told him to “go to hell, but resign first.”) Our relationship with Big Oil may have been perceived as contentious because we always put the interests of Alaskans first.

The White House could do worse than emulate what Alaska did over the years. No, it doesn’t make you popular with Big Oil (my commissioners and I certainly learned that!), and you may see fewer campaign contributions flow your way – but so what? Dealing with the impacts of 35 days of uncontrolled oil flow into pristine waters is more than enough time for the White House to realize they need to tap into expertise, hold BP accountable, and not waste time politicking around such a grave situation.

Taking a tough stand to protect our environment while domestically drilling for much-needed energy sources is the only way the public can trust government and industry to safely work towards energy independence. We need to “Drill, baby, drill” responsibly, safely, and ethically. That’s the way Alaska’s DNR accomplishes its mission in America’s 49th state.

– Sarah Palin

The ball is now in the Obama regime’s court. Sarah Palin helped establish what is the world’s gold standard for governmental oversight of the oil business. Obama would be a fool not to take advantage of the offer by the best team in the business.

Sarah is right to ask questions. The Obama regime, along with the Marxist-democrat controlled Congress is the most corrupt in our nation’s history. Barack Obama and his group are actively working to extort tens of trillions of dollars from businesses and individuals worldwide, through a scheme of “carbon credit trading.” Obama being the one who secured funding for the creation of the Chicago Climate Exchange, that is now owned in part, by fellow Crime Inc. member Al Gore, and their buddies from Goldman Sachs.

We also know the Marxists have hijacked the so-called “green” movement as a method for wealth re-distribution on a scale that would make even Marx and Lenin blush. If you notice, the radical left are already using this oil spill disaster as an excuse to halt all American oil exploration, and further make us subservient to other nations for our much needed energy. It is in the interest of the radical Marxists that this disaster be of the worst magnitude possible. Obama’s nine day delay before even addressing this mess is certainly consistent with serving the interests of the radical left.

Of course, with Obama, one must follow the money. As Sarah points out, Obama received more money from BP than any other politician in twenty years. But British Petroleum’s money is chump change. Obama’s puppet master, and former Nazi collaborator, George Soros, plays a significant part here.

Everyone remembers that last year Barack Obama loaned Brazil $15 billion of taxpayer money so oil giant Petrobas can do more off shore drilling. Just three days before Obama made this generous gift of our money, good old George Soros bought controlling interest in Petrobas. It is now his largest holding.

It’s not hard to figure out that banning offshore drilling, as Obama and the radical Marxists want to do, would greatly benefit Soros, who once claimed ownership of the democrat party. Soros funds literally hundreds of left wing groups, all supporting the most radical of views. If you are not familiar with the pure evil that is George Soros, you can get a good look at what we are dealing with here.

Soros is tied to Barack Obama at the hip. He counts on Obama to do his bidding. He too is part of Crime Inc, and the criminal activity Obama, Al Gore, elements of Goldman Sachs, and others are involved in. You can read more about Crime Inc. here and here.

We know corruption is involved in all of this, it’s the Chicago way. We also know there is massive incompetence too, because that’s the government way.

Obama is a fascinating figure to me. He comes off as incredibly incompetent, and can barely speak in coherent sentences, unless he’s reading other people’s words off of the teleprompter. His inability to get control of this issue is quite telling.

And yet, Obama was devious enough to be a principle in Crime Inc., one of the architects of the Chicago Climate Exchange, and the carbon credit trading scheme. Obama has also set himself up to become incredibly wealthy, wealthy beyond all imagination, if he can cram legislation down America’s throat that will force this carbon trading scheme on us all.

If their plans succeed, the entire world, not just BP, will feel the Obama regime’s boot on their neck.

Thank God Sarah Palin has the guts to take these thugs on!

Sarah Palin Talks Illegal Immigration, Socialism, BP, Oil Spills, And Putting America Back On The Right Track

Posted by Gary P Jackson on May 20, 2010

When the President went on to speak about immigration, some people are going to listen to his sound bites and ask: “Is this another ‘you lie’ moment?

~Sarah Palin

On Wednesday, Sarah Palin gave a lengthy interview with Fox Business News’ David Asman on his popular America’s Nightly Scoreboard show. In this interview, Sarah talks about a wide range of topics: The power of her political endorsements, Obama’s march towards socialism, British Petroleum, the oil spill, corruption, and of course, the hot topic of illegal immigration.

No words minced here. This is Sarah Palin callin’ it like she sees it.

Palin on Putting America Back on Track

Palin: Every Border State Should Have Arizonas Law

Palin: We Cannot Continue on Road Toward Socialism

Palin on BP Oil Spill, Terrorism

This is serious red meat Sarah is dishing out. Solid answers to the most pressing questions of our time. Here is Sarah Palin showing not only her toughness, but her belief in American Exceptionalism.

Sarah also talks about her own career as she dealt with corruption, especially within the Alaska Republican Party, as well as her hard core stance on the oil companies and environmental responsibility.

Why aren’t we hearing this sort of candor and enthusiasm, and these sort of solutions from the GOP show ponies who think it’s “their turn” in 2012?
