Media Mocks Concerned Americans Seeking Answers

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 8, 2013

I am weeping for for my country today.  It used to be that journalism was a profession of honor.  It was a career for seekers of truth; people with curiosity and writing skills who wanted to provide the “who, what, when, where, and why” of what happened in a particular situation.  Providing just the facts allowed the reader to form his/her own opinion on the matter at hand.  Sadly, that seems to no longer be the case as is evidenced here.  Earlier today, The Washington Post posted the following tweet regarding the hearings into what  happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.

In case you’re having a hard time reading the tweet from the above picture, let me help you out:

Who’s tweeting about Benghazi? Rich, middle-aged men and Chick-fil-A lovers http://wapo.st/18YFgKP

Yes, you’re reading that correctly and yes, the “Twitter voice” of the Washington Post has stooped to mocking Americans who are deeply concerned about what transpired in Benghazi that fateful day when  four American lives were lost.

In response to the tweet from the Washington Post, I replied as follows:

WaPo_JSresponse

My tweet:

@washingtonpost Our ancestors & those that currently serve shed blood & DIE for a free press. Your job is seeking #truth . How dare you!

Posted to Palin’s Facebook page in response to the above:

Is there any wonder why distrust of arrogant, out-of-touch media is at an all-time high? During today’s Benghazi hearings, the Washington Post actually tweeted: “Who’s tweeting about Benghazi? Rich, middle-aged men and Chick-fil-A lovers.” This would be the same Washington Post that broke the story on Watergate. Now they just mock concerned Americans who want answers to why four brave Americans died, including two distinguished vets. And the Obama administration asks, “What does it matter?”

– Sarah Palin

I don’t know that I can pinpoint exactly when journalism died but without a doubt, she’s dead and gone.

Palin: What is America’s Leadership Thinking?

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 23, 2013

 

In response to the above video where President Obama poorly attempts to compare the relationship of the USA and Canada to that of Israel and Palestine, Sarah Palin posted the following to her Facebook page:

Regarding this comparison, is he thinking it’s America or Canada that would be lobbing mortars across the other’s border to strike fear and kill innocents? And is he thinking that America is compared to Israel or Palestine? Or is it Canada that’s more like Israel or Palestine? Really, friends, if anyone else, ANYWHERE, had made such a claim, that person would be skewered and pilloried forever. Again, what is America’s leadership thinking?

Palin: Pray for Peace in the Holy Land

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 22, 2013

Israel_PalinTrip

Posted to Palin’s Facebook page earlier today:

As always, one must listen carefully to what leadership says, or fails to say, in analyzing current affairs. During his trip to Israel, President Obama said, “It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own.” Of course, as people of good will we would like everyone to have the right of self-determination and God-given liberty, but we also have to ask ourselves what has been done to establish the circumstances necessary for that. It’s been observed that a Palestinian child cannot grow up “in a state of her own” because of Palestinian leaders’ decisions.

There seems to be nothing on the horizon to change the mindset of those who would raise Palestinian children to hate and be intolerant of Jews, Christians, and other “infidels.” Bottom line: until that changes and until the Palestinian people become genuine partners in peace with Israel, little movement towards peace can be made. This is tragic for all, including those Palestinian children being indoctrinated. I hope our President understands this and could acknowledge it so the public could better understand the conflict. We can’t be naive to the causes of this centuries-old plight, and we mustn’t fail to ignore the one-sided effort to finally bring peace to Israel.

In the meantime, pray for peace in the Holy Land.

– Sarah Palin

Palin: Obama Can’t See Egypt and Libya from His House (Updated)

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on September 12, 2012

It seems that Sarah Palin felt the same frustrations that many other conservatives were feeling as the events of yesterday, September 11, 2012, unfolded.  It’s most apparent that while “Rome is burning, President Obama is fiddling” or playing golf, or appearing on the Letterman show or fundraising or declining to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu.  The following was posted to Palin’s Facebook page overnight and in approximately six hours it has generated 59,400+ “likes”,  8,800 comments, and been “shared”  in excess of 9,300 times.  .

UPDATE:   Palin’s post has been up for approximately 18 hours now and it has generated 139,866 “likes”, 17.753 comments, and been “shared”  20,930 times. Whether readers of her Facebook page agree or disagree with Sarah Palin’s statement, the events have obviously evoked many responses regarding the situation in the Middle East.

Apparently President Obama can’t see Egypt and Libya from his house. On the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on America, our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi were attacked by violent Islamic mobs. In Cairo, they scaled the walls of our embassy, destroyed our flag, and replaced it with a black Islamic banner. In Benghazi, the armed gunmen set fire to our consulate and killed an American staff member. The Islamic radicals claim that these attacks are in protest to some film criticizing Islam. In response to this, the U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a statement that was so outrageous many of us thought it must be a satire. The embassy actually apologized to the violent mob attacking us, and it even went so far as to chastise those who use free speech to “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” (Funny, the current administration has no problem hurting the “religious feelings” of Catholics.)

But where is the president’s statement about this? These countries represent his much touted “Arab Spring.” How’s that Arab Spring working out for us now? Have we received an apology yet from our “friends” in the Muslim Brotherhood for the assault on our embassy? It’s about time our president stood up for America and condemned these Islamic extremists. I realize there must be a lot on his mind these days – what with our economy’s abysmal jobless numbers and Moody’s new warning about yet another downgrade to our nation’s credit rating due to the current administration’s failure to come up with a credible deficit reduction plan. And, of course, he has a busy schedule – with all those rounds of golf, softball interviews with the “Pimp with the Limp,” and fundraising dinners with his corporate cronies. But our nation’s security should be of utmost importance to our Commander-in-chief. America can’t afford any more “leading from behind” in such a dangerous world. We already know that President Obama likes to “speak softly” to our enemies. If he doesn’t have a “big stick” to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one. – Sarah Palin

Palin: Obama’s 3 a.m. call went to answering machine

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 5, 2011

Remember Hillary Clinton’s “3:00 a.m. phone call” commercial”? I do and it certainly made an impact on me. When it comes to Egypt, it seems that President Obama has received that 3:00 a.m. phone call and Sarah Palin has something to say about it in her interview with Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody ~Jackie~

From http://www.cnn.com:

Washington (CNN) – Sarah Palin, in her first comments on the uprising in Egypt, called the situation President Barack Obama’s 3 a.m. phone call and said, “It seems the call went right to the answering machine.”

Palin, the former GOP vice presidential candidate, spoke with Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody after her speech Friday night at the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California.

In the interview, the potential Republican presidential candidate said, “We need to know what it is America stands for so we know who it is that America will stand with. And we do not have all that information (from the administration) yet.”

She told “The Brody File” she was “not real enthused about what it is that’s being done on a national level and from (Washington) in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt.”   More
