Palin: Congress Has America Caught Up in ‘Endless Extortion Scheme’

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 22, 2013

Pulling no punches, Palin aptly describes the dire situation in Washington, DC with our “leadership” and discusses the shocking discoveries Peter Schwiezer has uncovered in his new book “Extortion”.

From Brietbart:

America is suffering from an epic case of Armageddon fatigue. 

Budget showdown, government shutdown, debt ceiling debacle—the stakes are real but the establishment seems to feed off the chaos they create as a means to foment fear and outrage and translate it into campaign donations for themselves.

Look closely and you’ll see that something seismic is going on under the surface of the manufactured chaos in D.C.

Washington has morphed into an extortion racket, a place where members of the permanent political class threaten to inflict legislative and regulatory pain to extract campaign donations that they can then siphon into the pockets of themselves and their family members.

In a new book featured this Sunday on 60 Minutes titled Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets, Peter Schweizer explains how Washington politicians use a set of mafia-style legislative tactics to extort people and industries into donating to them out of fear of political and legal reprisals.

Schweizer interviewed former Chairman of Apache Corporation Ray Plank. Plank said campaign cash and lobbying contracts now function as “protection money” to keep lawmakers and regulators from going after you.

“It’s what you expect from the mafia,” said Plank. “They basically come to you and say, ‘We are going to shove this bat up your ass and give you an enema. You better play ball.’ We saw a great deal of it. It’s an insidious blight.”

There are left-wing progressives on Wall Street and in the high-tech world who bankrolled President Obama’s campaign because they love his radical agenda. But as Schweizer points out, many gave because they know they have to; if they don’t, Obama will come after them.

That’s a lesson the Tea Party knows all too well. After the Tea Party’s historic 2010 midterm victory, Obama unleashed Attorney General Eric Holder to go after the oil and gas sector, which had given four times as much to Republicans as to Democrats. As Obama said in October 2010, “We are going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.”

Of course, not everyone gets subjected to these Godfather-style shakedowns. Case in point: Obama bundler and former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine of MF Global shame. After “losing” $1.6 billion of MF Global customer money, Corzine walked away without a scratch. In Extortion, Schweizer publishes a devastating quote from Lisa Timmerman, a 17-year MF Global employee who served as the firm’s assistant comptroller for five years, saying: “Corzine is a major Obama fundraiser [which] is keeping prosecutors from bringing criminal charges against him.”

But what about the rest of us? What about the average American mom and dad just trying to stay afloat in the disastrous Obama economy? We don’t have the funds to throw “protection money” at the political extortionists in Washington who are eager to foist things like Obamacare on us. Only Obama’s union cronies and members of the permanent political class are given Obamacare waivers and spared the pain of the policies D.C. inflicts on the rest of us. Big business got an Obamacare exemption that Obama refuses to give ordinary individuals who can’t even sign up for Obamacare on the broken exchange websites, but they’ll still be fined for not doing so!

And what about the GOP establishment? Why haven’t they been able to clean up the extortion racket in Washington? You have to ask yourself, has the party machine fought this corruption or does it participate in it? As a senior House Republican told Fox News on Thursday, it’s “highly unlikely” Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will be challenged because few have the muscle to match his ability to “raise money.”

In fact, the ability to raise money is apparently key to all the power in Washington. Here’s how bad it’s gotten: the Democratic and Republican Parties actually have a secret price list—officially known as “party dues”—that tells members of Congress how much money they must extract from donors in order to win a chairmanship or a top slot on a powerful Congressional committee. Schweizer somehow obtained the top-secret lists and included the never-before-published documents in Extortion.

But fundraising isn’t the only thing D.C. employs to keep people in line. Over in the Senate, Democrats like Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) use thug tactics on Tea Party members and activists who stand in their way. In a devastating chapter on Harry Reid, Schweizer includes a quote from Reid’s former chief of staff Susan McCue, who in 2005 said Reid seizes on a person’s weaknesses to “disarm, to endear, to threaten, but most of all to instill fear.”

The fact that these strong-arm tactics take place in Washington doesn’t surprise me at all. I’ve fought this type of corruption my entire political career. And those who disagreed with me politically used thug-like tactics to try to bankrupt my family with frivolous lawsuits in Alaska, and it hasn’t stopped to this day.

It’s time for Washington to stop threatening citizens and scaring up dollars through an endless extortion scheme of manufactured crises. It’s time for leaders to lead. That means doing right by voters without requiring them to pay protection money in advance.

You have to wonder whether Constitutional rule of law even exists when separate rules apply for powerful and well-connected men like Jon Corzine. And you have to wonder whether we really have government of the people, by the people, and for the people when the only way We the People can be heard is if we grease the palms of the ruling class.

Enough is enough. If the permanent political class won’t drain the swamp, we will. We should follow the advice in the title of Schweizer’s last book and “Throw Them All Out.” 2014 is just around the corner.

Palin: Were they lying then or are they lying now?

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on November 28, 2012

Sarah_point

Sarah Palin posed a simple question to her Facebook page yesterday and linked to a letter by Brent Bozell at ForAmerica.

 

Politicians. Were they lying then or are they lying now?

 

ForAmerica’s Bozell calls out GOP leadership on Fiscal Cliff

Speaker John Boehner, Leader Mitch McConnell, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Minority Whip John Cornyn

United States Capitol

Washington, DC 20215

November 27, 2012

Speaker Boehner, Leader McConnell, Majority Leader Cantor, and Minority Whip Cornyn,

The 2012 election is over and now is the time to focus on delivering
on the promises you made to the country during the campaign.

With the so-called “fiscal cliff” rapidly approaching, both sides are
making opening gambits and the talk so far is alarming. You led the
Republican Party for two years claiming emphatically that the tax
increase on “the wealthy” that Barack Obama is determined to enact is
really a devastating tax hike on small business owners that would kill
jobs and decimate any kind of economic recovery. Now conservatives see
daily stories asserting that the GOP agrees with the President that
“revenues are on the table” and GOP elite are all over the airwaves
asking if the Tea Party will care if “a few multi-millionaires pay more
in taxes.” That talk is only embolding liberals to demand even higher
taxes. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and others are openly
calling for a return to taxing Americans in the top rate at 91 percent.
Yes that’s ludicrous, but liberals feel comfortable making such
outlandish proposals because they feel you are weak enough that you will
continue to surrender to evermore higher taxes having capitulated once
already. They will never be satisfied. You know that.

Conservatives have one question to ask: If you now claim a tax
increase on small business is the correct course of action, were you
lying all along when you claimed this tax increase would decimate the
economy? Because if you were not lying, you will now be willing
participants in the destruction of American jobs in a time of economic
crisis. This is the question you must answer, given the posturing of
many Republicans in the immediate aftermath of the election.  More

Palin: Ted Yoho for FL-3

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 23, 2012

Governor Sarah Palin is endorsing Ted Yoho to represent the citizens of Florida’s 3rd district. Palin’s Facebook message is quite clear in that she believes Ted Yoho will help to bring “sudden and relentless reform” to Washington, D.C.

 

Dr. Ted Yoho isn’t afraid of hard work. To put himself through college and veterinary school he worked nights in a vegetable packing house and summers in construction. After graduating, he started and grew his own successful business. Yes, President Obama, Ted built that himself.

Tired of watching career politicians spend us into debt and tax us to death, Ted decided to run for Congress in Florida’s new 3rd Congressional District. No stranger to hard work, Ted took his conservative businessman’s perspective from town to town, county to county, and voter to voter asking them all the same thing: “Had enough?” The answer was clear. Ted’s victory in last week’s primary sent the same message we are seeing all across the country: Yes, we have had enough. We’ve had enough of our elected officials going to Washington and forgetting about us. We’ve had enough of them mortgaging our children’s future to foreign debtors. We’ve had enough of Congress wasting our money on useless programs that enrich themselves or reward their cronies. We’ve had enough of high taxes. We’ve had enough of Obamacare’s threat of faceless government bureaucrats making life and death health care decisions for us. We’ve have enough of no job growth and government red tape that stifles our entrepreneurial spirit and any hope of long term prosperity.

Underdog candidates like Ted aren’t running because it’s easy, and they don’t plan on going to Washington to just “go along to get along.” No, these underdogs are running to fight for sudden and relentless reform and they know the hard work it will require to make it happen. If you’ve had enough and are ready for some real reform that puts government back on our side, please join me in supporting Dr. Ted Yoho for Congress in FL-3. Let’s send this commonsense businessman to D.C. to fight for us. He won’t forget who sent him there.

– Sarah Palin

Palin: Paul Gosar for AZ-4

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 23, 2012

Earlier today Governor Sarah Palin again endorsed Congressman Gosar of Arizona’s 4th district.  Via her Facebook page, Palin touted Gosar’s accomplishments as a freshman congressman and urged conservatives to support Gosar’s re-election bid.

Dr. Paul Gosar is not a career politician. He’s a dentist, a conservative, a small business owner, and someone I was proud to endorse in 2010. His accomplishments as a freshman congressman are remarkable and a shining example of what hardworking public service is all about.

You won’t find Paul playing endless rounds of golf or hobnobbing at D.C. cocktail parties. When Congress isn’t in session, you’ll find him with the people he represents. In the past 18 months, he’s held over 24 town halls and put over 60,000 miles on his old car traveling his district. And when he is not listening to the people he works for, he is with his wife Maude and his three kids, probably pulling weeds in his yard as he thinks of ways to shrink government and bring about the reform we need in Washington to secure a prosperous and fiscally responsible America for our children. As a freshman congressman, he didn’t just bide his time or go along to get along. He got down to work. Arizona’s largest newspaper reviewed Paul’s legislative accomplishments and concluded that “Bottom line: when it comes to sponsored bills and amendments passed by the House of Representatives, Gosar has been among the most successful new members not only in Arizona’s delegation, but also in the entire freshman class.” He’s fought hard to eliminate wasteful spending, sponsoring one bill after another to repeal wasteful programs and save the taxpayers’ money. He co-sponsored and voted for “Cut, Cap, and Balance,” and he took a tough vote to cut $2.1 trillion from the bloated federal budget, which is the largest nominal spending cut since World War II.

He’s been a leader on looking for ways to cut spending, and he’s also been a staunch fighter for the people of Arizona. Along with Congressman Darrell Issa, Paul has been laser-like in pursuing the truth about the “Operation Fast and Furious” scandal, and Paul is the sponsor of a resolution of no confidence in Attorney General Holder. He’s also defended the interests of Arizonans in taking on the Obama administration’s over-reaching EPA bureaucrats.

I think you can see why he has the support of so many Arizonans – from Governor Jan Brewer to Senator Jon Kyl. I was proud to endorse Paul Gosar two years ago, and I believe he more than deserves to return to Congress to continue his good work for Arizona’s new 4th Congressional District. I hope you’ll join me in supporting Paul and donating and volunteering for him. This is one conservative public servant you can be certain will be working hard for you and getting positive results.

You can learn more about Congressman Gosar or donate to his campaign here.

Gov. Palin Endorses FL’s Sandy Adams for U.S. House

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 12, 2012

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

According to Sandy Adams’ website, Governor Palin has endorsed her candidacy for Congress:

Today, freshman Sandy Adams announced that she had earned the endorsement of former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Nominee Sarah Palin. Governor Palin’s support is proof-positive that Sandy Adams is the conservative choice for Florida’s new 7th Congressional District.

“Governor Sarah Palin has led the charge for conservatives,” said Adams. “While many politicians subscribe to the notion of the status quo, Governor Palin has risen above it. She knows that the true power of our country comes from the American people – not the Washington establishment or special interest groups. Governor Palin knows our nation is drowning in debt and the only way for our country to survive is to send true fiscal conservatives to Washington, D.C.

“Americans need representatives who will truly listen to them and that care about the direction our country is heading. I didn’t run for Congress because I wanted to be a politician, I ran because I was concerned about the future for our grandchildren and children. I refuse to accept business as usual in Washington, because I know Central Floridians deserve better than a career politician like my opponent.”

Today, Gov. Palin made the following endorsement of Adams:

“In 2012, we have a unique opportunity to elect more commonsense conservatives to Congress, but that alone is not enough. We must support conservatives who are with us on the issues but not weighed down with the burden of crony capitalism that is so prevalent in Washington, D.C. Congresswoman Sandy Adams is just one of those candidates. Unlike her opponent, Sandy is free from the shackles of lobbyists and back door dealings in Washington. As someone who served in the military and a career law enforcement officer, Sandy doesn’t have time or the patience for the business as usual ways of Washington. Washington insiders on both sides of the aisle have spent this country into massive debt and put our children’s future at risk. Let’s start to restore power to the people. Please join me in supporting Sandy Adams today.”

– Sarah Palin

Adams was endorsed by Gov. Palin in her race against an incumbent Democrat in 2010, and that support helped contribute to a 20 point win in November. At the beginning of this election, Adams approached Palin about continuing that support in her race for re-election. In her letter to Palin, Adams wrote:

During the 2008 presidential campaign your candidacy for vice president shone a bright spotlight on the need for politicians to answer to the people they are seeking to represent. You spoke out against the entrenched bureaucracy that holds our economy down, against the mainstream media who go along with the status quo to maintain their access to power, and against the special interests who too often control the levers of power in politics.

While ultimately unsuccessful, your outspokenness helped a new generation of politicians who were not afraid to stand up to the old guard, who are willing to challenge the status quo, and who believe that the brightest days of our republic lie ahead of us. For that I thank you.

Today I am writing to once again ask for your endorsement in my reelection bid for Congress. This year, however, it is not a Democrat that chose to run against me, but rather a fellow Republican. Rather than run in a district with more than 70 percent of the people living there currently in his congressional district, my opponent has chosen to run against me for reelection. A twenty-year incumbent who has a long history of favoring earmarks, foreign travel and who once proclaimed he was President Obama’s “biggest cheerleader” for the high speed rail boondoggle, my opponent epitomizes what is wrong with Washington, D.C.

Today’s endorsement by Gov. Palin adds to a long list of conservative organizations committed to supporting freshman Sandy Adams in her race against a 20-year incumbent politician. To date, Adams has been endorsed by the Concerned Women for America, Eagle Forum, Maggie’s List, VIEW PAC, the National Right to Life, SBA List, the National Defense PAC, the Government is Not God PAC, David Barton, Erick Erickson, the Central Florida Tea Party Council, and Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Palin: Congress, it’s time to stop lining your pockets

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on December 12, 2011

Op-Ed by Governor Sarah Palin for USA Today:

Thanks to the solid new research and recent revelations in Peter Schweizer‘s book Throw Them All Out and the subsequent coverage on 60 Minutes, we have concrete proof to explain how members of Congress accumulate wealth at a rate astonishingly faster than the rest of Americans and have stock portfolios that outperform even the best hedge-fund managers’. (Full disclosure: Schweizer is employed by my political action committee as a foreign policy adviser.)

From sweetheart land deals to initial public offering (IPO) stock gifts to insider trading with non-public government information, the methods of unethical wealth accumulation for our permanent political class are endless. The reaction from the Beltway establishment to the revelations concerning insider trading among members of Congress was predictable. First they denied it, then they dismissed the problem as much ado about nothing. Some said there was no need for new laws or action because the Securities and Exchange Commission could prosecute members of Congress under existing laws against insider trading.

But under current law, there is no way the SEC will ever go after a powerful congressman or senator. The SEC never has, even though insider trading prohibitions have existed since the 1930s. Here’s why: Congress sets the SEC’s budget, and senators approve the head of the SEC. Congress uses its power of the purse strings to threaten federal agencies that get in their way.

For example, in 2006 the FBI got a search warrant from a federal judge to comb former congressman William Jefferson‘s office. The FBI already had evidence that Jefferson was taking bribes. Congress was furious that the FBI would dare search a fellow member’s office. Members claimed the search was unconstitutional. They even threatened to cut the Justice Department‘s budget in retaliation. All this despite the fact that 86% of Americans supported the FBI raid.   More

Palin: How Congress Occupied Wall Street

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on November 18, 2011

Since Sunday night’s 60 Minutes Episode (clips here, here, and here), the news world has been set on fire with revelations from the book “Throw Them All Out”.  Written by Palin’s foreign policy adviser Peter Schweizer, the explosive “Throw Them All Out” provides documented evidence of our elected officials (AKA permanent political class) enriching themselves at the expense of their constituents. Think about it.  Acting on a stock market trade with insider information would send you or I to jail (think Martha Stewart), yet our members of Congress have a different set of laws that apply to them.  Isn’t that convenient?  These elected officials are privy to all sorts of information allowing them to buy or sell thus giving them the added edge.  In today’s Wall Street Journal op-ed, Sarah Palin again calls for “sudden and relentless reform”.  Governor Palin, I agree.

From The Wall Street Journal:

Politicians who arrive in Washington as men and women of modest means leave as millionaires. Why?

By SARAH PALIN

Mark Twain famously wrote, “There is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.” Peter Schweizer’s new book, “Throw Them All Out,” reveals this permanent political class in all its arrogant glory. (Full disclosure: Mr. Schweizer is employed by my political action committee as a foreign-policy adviser.)

Mr. Schweizer answers the questions so many of us have asked. I addressed this in a speech in Iowa last Labor Day weekend. How do politicians who arrive in Washington, D.C. as men and women of modest means leave as millionaires? How do they miraculously accumulate wealth at a rate faster than the rest of us? How do politicians’ stock portfolios outperform even the best hedge-fund managers’? I answered the question in that speech: Politicians derive power from the authority of their office and their access to our tax dollars, and they use that power to enrich and shield themselves.  More

Sarah Palin: Hey Democrats, What’s The Plan, Man?

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 7, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

One of the reasons we absolutely love Sarah Palin, and support her so strongly, is the fact she simply doesn’t suffer fools well. She also doesn’t take crap from anyone. Sarah is a street fighter who loves the sting of battle, and when she is on a mission, the last thing anyone with a lick of sense would want to do, is try and stop her from completing that mission.

Sarah has been hammering the Obama regime and his Congress over the upcoming $3.8 TRILLION tax increase, the largest in history. She was attacked by the far left, “Journolist approvedPolitiFact, an outfit known for carrying the water for Obama and the Marxist-progressives. They claimed she was “pants on fire lying.” Sarah took PolitiFact to school, showing them what real fact checking looked like, as you can read here.

Obviously undetered by attacks from the left, Sarah took time from her commercial fishing gig to again ask Obama and his crew: “What’s the plan, man?

Pants on Fire, Still

A $3.8 trillion tax increase is coming down the pike, folks. America’s tax cuts which can incentivize small businesses to expand and hire more people (thus fulfilling the mission to grow more private sector jobs), or even just to keep our doors open, will expire in four months. That expiration equates to an increase on your tax bill, starting at midnight, December 31.

I’ll keep calling out President Obama and the Democrats until they tell the American people what the plan is to save the incentives – to not allow the mom and pops’ tax cuts to expire. Granted, liberals (including stubborn “fact-checkers” who claim I’m lying about the soon-to-be tax cut expiration) are trying to clobber me for holding them accountable and prodding them toward revealing their intentions (because they’ve had 18 months to publicly propose a plan to stave off the $3.8 trillion tax increase that will soon slam us, but have revealed no plan). If they have a bill to extend the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, let’s see it. Time for them to put up or shut up.

But you don’t have to take my word for it. Take the word of the “fact-checkers” at PolitiFact, who, before moving the goal posts in their second dissembling “fact-check” on the Democrats’ tax hikes, wrote in their original “fact-check”:

There are no formal congressional proposals yet to keep the Bush tax cuts in place, so we don’t have precise estimates from official sources like the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. Still, there’s a good bit of consensus on what the tax increases would look like, both if lower rates expired only for high earners and also for all incomes.

As Ed Morrissey noted:

And there’s a big problem with this argument, which is that “consensus” means nothing without passing a bill, and especially not without proposing one first. Thanks to Democrats in 2001 and 2003, those bills cutting the tax rates have hard-and-fast sunset provisions that create an expiration date absent of any other action.

We are now less than four months away from that expiration date after seven years of seeing it coming, after more than 3 years of Democratic control of Congress, and after eighteen months of the Obama administration. Democrats don’t even have a proposal on the table yet, and the legislative calendar is rapidly shrinking to take action before the expiration date hits. Without action, we will see a $3.8 trillion tax hike across the entire spectrum of earners.

So much for “consensus” without action. PolitiFact is curiously stating that in his 2011 budget, the President mentioned some “plan” to do something about not raising taxes on all Americans. Um, don’t know about you, but I don’t find this general, vague promise of some “plan” all that reassuring.

The Left also “plans” to do something about our out of control deficits and high unemployment, and the President “planned” for his nearly trillion dollar stimulus to keep unemployment under 8%. We’ve seen how successful that “plan” worked out.

The President’s budget “plan” hasn’t worked out so well either. As the economist Bruce Bartlett explained at the time, the President’s budget – including the tax promise – was never much more than a vague statement of intent. Practically speaking, it was dead on arrival. Even Bartlett couldn’t have known how dead, though, because in the end Congress didn’t even succeed in passing a budget, let alone in taking a decision on the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts.

Bottom line: until we see a formal proposal – an actual bill before Congress – then get ready for that $3.8 trillion hit.

(By the way, the Left sure gets wee-wee’d up when they’re called on something like this, eh? And here I am, thousands of miles away from DC out on a commercial fishing boat, working my butt off for my own business, merely asking the Democrat politicos and their liberal friends in the media: “What’s the plan, man?”, and they seem to feel threatened by my question. So, I’ll go back to setting my hooks and watching the halibut take the bait, and when I come back into the boat’s cabin in a few hours, I’ll log back on here to read their reply. I’ll have succeeded if they’re forced to finally reveal to Americans how they plan to increase taxes, and what they intend to do with our money. In the meantime, I’m catching fish.)

Sarah Palin, in Homer, Alaska

As Sarah points out, while these idiot “fact checkers” as talking noise and claiming she is wrong, their position is unsustainable, because there is NO PLAN. Nothing is written down, and most certainly nothing is waiting in Congress for passage.

Much like Obama did regularly as a Senator in both the Illinois Senate, as well as the U.S. Senate, Congress voted “present” when it came time to pass a budget, thus there is no mechanism to stop this $3.8 TRILLION monster tax increase coming your way. Nothing to stop it at all. The Obama regime was hoping you wouldn’t notice.

Just like the so-called “fact checkers“, Obama and his party are just making it up as they go!

The radical left wants you to just trust them. They say it will all be OK. We all kinda know what happens to those who trust the Marxist-democrats, don’t we! These are people who will lie to you when the truth would work better!

On a side note, one wonders where all of the GOP show ponies are. You know, those “profiles in courage” like Mitt Romney. They’ve all been quite conspicuous by their absence on this, and many other serious issues.

All I can tell you for sure is Victory in November is essential if our Republic is to survive. This is no time to sit around and fret. This is a time to stand up and be counted. Time to get off the couch and into the game!

Sarah Palin is the one who is standing up for us, so in turn, I am standing with Sarah Palin and asking Obama and his Congress: What’s the plan, man?
