Palin’s Brother, Chuck Heath, Jr, Addresses McGinniss’s Lies

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 23, 2011

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

It’s not been a good week for Joe McGinniss. Even the left-obsessed media has condemned, doubted, and blown off his anti-Palin book. Yesterday, it became public knowledge, via his own email, that he had no proof to support the claims he made in the book. Today, Chuck Heath, Jr., Governor Palin’s brother, issued a statement. Big Journalism reports:

The McGinniss book is filled with one lie after another. The final straw for me was when I learned that he used me as a source for his lies about my sister and brother-in-law’s marriage. He included in his book comments falsely attributed to me by one of his unnamed sources. Neither McGinniss nor Crown/Random House reached out to me to verify, or even comment on, this alleged hearsay from an unnamed source. They just ran with it, and as a consequence, the tabloids picked it up and used it to fuel false rumors about my sister getting a divorce. All of this is a total lie, and I’m sick of seeing my sister, her family, and our extended family being trashed by smear-merchants like Joe McGinniss and his publisher.

McGinniss’s Email Proves His Anti-Palin Book Has No Proof

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 22, 2011

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

I have purposely stayed away from writing about the release of Joe McGinniss’s book in which he makes degrading claims about Governor Palin and the Palin family. Some things, as far as I’m concerned, just don’t deserve the publicity. Even the mainstream media, certainly no friends of the Governor, lashed out against McGinniss, who had found a way to weasel next door to the Palins while writing his hit piece. No thinking person truly believed what this character had to say anyway, but today Andrew Breitbart shed further light on what McGinniss is full of.

After a week of universally scathing pans from the reflexively anti-Palin establishment media, McGinniss now faces the fight of his literary life: the accusation that he seems to have knowingly submitted a book to his publisher, Crown/Random House, that was filled with unproved “tawdry gossip” and rumors that lacked “factual evidence.”

In the email below, sent in January of 2011, McGinniss reveals that his manuscript, then under legal review at Crown/Random House, could not prove its most headline-grabbing allegations. And yet, many of these “salacious stories” that lacked “proof” (in McGinniss’s own words) ended up in the book, and on televisions everywhere during the author’s current media tour … without proper sourcing, and without any apparent new evidence to support them.

McGinniss’s panicked state is evidenced by the identity of the recipient to whom he sent his email of distress. Jesse Griffin was the author of an obscure, low-rent, and now-defunct anti-Palin blog that obsessed over Trig Palin’s maternity–claiming, without any evidence, that Sarah Palin was not Trig’s mother.

Was Random House aware that its prized author was making a desperate overtime bid to save face? And if so, why did it allow him to come forth with most of those tawdry accusations without proof or proper sourcing?

This would not be the first time McGinniss has found himself in trouble over accusations of unethical journalism. In 1987, McGinniss agreed to pay $325,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by the convicted murderer who was the subject of McGinniss’s book Fatal Vision. He has also admitted to having surreptitiously distributed a competitor’s manuscript about Palin that was handed to him by his own publisher. The leak allegedly damaged the commercial viability of that book.

In 2003, Random House released a larger-than-life, massive bestseller by James Frey entitled A Million Little Pieces. Later, it was revealed that the book was a fantastical literary hoax that made its way past some of the highest-paid and most respected editors and lawyers in the literary world. Doubleday/Random House felt compelled to offer full refunds to those who had bought the book.

Has history repeated itself?

Mr. McGinniss has not responded to multiple requests for comment.

The email he sent to anti-Palin blogger, Jesse Griffin, clearly depicts a McGinniss in panic because he had no facts to substantiate the attacks on Governor Palin’s character found in his book. He was essentially begging for anything to help him in his motive to take her down, acknowledging that as it stood his book was nothing more than smutty gossip. The email speaks for itself. Read it here at Breitbart’s Big Government.

Breitbart has updated his original post with the revelation that Random House chose to publish the McGinniss book even after lawyers told him there was no evidence to prove his allegations. He writes:

In an email dated January 27, 2011, Joe McGinniss, author of The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, says that Random House lawyers have told him he has provided nothing more than “tawdry gossip” to substantiate “any of the salacious stories about the Palin family.”

He adds that “No one has ever provided factual evidence” (original emphasis) of the following accusations:

[…]

Yet almost all of these accusations appear in McGinniss’s book, without any substantial proof beyond gossip, and without any apparent new information to address the lack of “factual evidence” in January 2011.

You can go here to read those accusations.

Governor Palin has yet to say directly what she’s decided to do in 2012, but she has been rather consistent when speaking of the qualifications needed of the Republican candidate who will ensure that ABO (Anybody But Obama) occupies the White House in January 2013. The most vetted candidate is part of her list. Who else is more vetted than she? And the more people attempt to depict her as anyone other than a person with unquestionable work ethic, a stellar record, and upstanding character, the more foolish they make themselves look. She has been held up to more microscopes than a science lab could house, and she has emerged spotless each time. Don Surber puts it this way:

If she runs, I will vote for Sarah Palin satisfied that there are no skeletons in her closet. She is who she says she is. So many people have vetted her that I have full confidence that there is no scandal anywhere.

Statements of Brad Hanson and Todd Palin on McGinness Charges

Posted by joshpainter on September 15, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
Brad Hanson, Todd Palin’s former business partner, has released a statement refuting one of the many lies being propagated by professional liar, plagiarist and all around creep Joe McGinness:

“This is the same old story that went around in 2008,” Hanson said in a statement released today by his publicist. “It is a complete and outright lie. Todd and Sarah Palin have been good friends for many years, and in fact we still own property together. We sold a former joint business venture for business reasons, nothing more. These attacks are shameful and those making them seem to be out only to destroy good people and make money doing so.”

[More]

Todd Palin released his own statement regarding McGinness’ slimy attack on his wife’s character late Wednesday night:

“This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in right next door to us to harass us and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife,” Todd Palin said via SarahPAC’s Rebecca Mansour. “His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo, and smears. Even The New York Times called this book ‘dated, petty,’ and that it ‘chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.”

[More]

Update: Todd Palin’s full statement was provided to NBC’s “Today Show” Thursday morning:

This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in right next door to us to harass us and spy on us. He traffics in innuendo and falsehoods. A few years ago he interviewed members of Sarah’s administration for a magazine article, and afterwards they said that he was the most disingenuous and intellectually dishonest writer they’d ever dealt with. He’s spent the last year interviewing marginal figures with an axe to grind in order to churn out a hit piece to satisfy his own creepy obsession with my wife. I’d ask that people consider these facts when evaluating his latest lies.”

“I’d ask the fathers and husbands of America to consider our privacy when one summer day I found this guy on the deck of the rental property, just 18 feet away next door to us, staring like a creep at my wife while she mowed the lawn in her shorts, unbeknownst to her that he was prying. As well as our teenage daughters while they tried to enjoy our traditional Alaskan summer days outdoors. Joe’s son told the media he advised his dad not to move from the East Coast to become our next door neighbor, but said his dad ‘was just waiting for Todd to be out of the picture.’ Sarah has never spoken to this intruder into our lives, our friends and family don’t speak to him, so we have no idea where he would come up with content for his book. He was on our doorstep one day trying to make conversation with our son until Track cut the conversation short after discerning Joe’s odd behavior, and I spoke to him one time when I saw him 18 feet away, just to find out who he was. He took that conversation and reported it to the media as me ‘threatening’ him.”

[More]

Incredibly, no reporter appears to have taken the time to contact Glen Rice for comment on the McGinness allegations. But, as Sean Hannity likes to say, “Journalism is dead.”

McGinniss Moves Out

Posted by loricalabrese on September 8, 2010

Getting a new neighbor usually entails being friendly and open, but when your Sarah Palin and the neighbor is Joe McGinnis, it becomes a national story with accusations of stalking.

Author Joe McGinniss, who is penning an exposé about Palin, took up residence right next door to Palin’s lakeside home in Wasilla in May, to research his new book.  But, fortunately for the Palins, McGinniss’ time is up and he’s left Wasilla to head home to Massachusetts and start writing.

McGinniss, whose unauthorized biography of the former VP candidate is tentatively titled “Sarah Palin: The Year of Living Dangerously,” stirred controversy with the move and prompted Palin to take to her Facebook page to make McGinnis’ undercover operation very public.

“We found out the good news today,” she wrote. “We’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning. Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden, and the family’s swimming hole?”

McGinnis denied accusations of stalking, but it was pointed out at the time that it has hardly necessary to move in next to the Palin family to do research. Palin and husband Todd also quickly erected an 8-foot fence so that McGinnis could not see into their property.

“I’ve been very busy but on Lake Lucille it’s been very quiet,” McGinniss told The Associated Press. “As I told Todd back in May – he came over to get in my face about moving in there – I said, ‘You’re not even going to know I’m there. A lot of the time, I’m not going to be here. And when I am, I mind my own business. I don’t care what happens on your side of the fence. That’s not why I’m here.'”

McGinnis stated that everyone he met in Wasilla was very friendly and open and often offered him the use of their guns. But McGinniss also says he noticed an “undercurrent of fear” when interviewing locals about Palin.

“People – I don’t know if they’re afraid of shadows or whether there’s something real there – she’s no longer in a position of governmental influence but there are people up there who are scared to death to talk because if Sarah ever found out they talked, oh, something terrible would happen to them,” he said.

Who knows if McGinniss’ new book will compare to the recent Vanity Fair hit piece, but as Palin has said, “We’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to.”

Say It Ain’t So Joe! Sarah Palin’s Deranged Stalker’s Publisher? Nazis, The Real Kind!

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 2, 2010

This is magically delicious. On the hoisted-by-one’s-own-petard-o-meter, this is pretty much off the charts. You remember when Sarah’s mentally unstable stalker, Joe McGinniss, called Sarah, and by extension, all red blooded Americans, Nazis? If not, let’s refresh our memories here.

My guess is demented stalker guy’s publisher is not going be too thrilled with this. You see, Stalker Joe’s publisher, Bertelsmann/Random House, has a bit of history in this area. This link was found sitting in an old Hellman’s mayonnaise on my back porch, from the BBC:



Bertelsmann admits Nazi past

German media giant Bertelsmann has admitted it lied about its Nazi past and that it made big profits during Adolf Hitler’s reign in Germany using Jewish slave labour.

A commission set up by the firm found Bertelsmann rode the rise of the Nazi party to restructure itself from a religious and school book publisher to supply millions of anti-Semitic texts.

Bertelsmann published a variety of papers and books that clearly had anti-Jewish bias,” Independent Historical Commission (IHC) Chairman Saul Friedlaender, an Israeli historian, told a news conference.

The IHC found Bertelsmann had targeted the youth market with its “Exciting Stories” series and the “The Christmas Book of the Hitler Youth” annual which pushed its sales up 20 fold.

The IHC said the company’s “legend” that it was a victim of the Nazis was a lie.

Faking it

The Nazis shut down the company in 1944, but probably because of war shortages rather and not because of subversive texts, it said.

In 1945, the legend that C. Bertelsmann was closed down because of resistance to the Nazis smoothed the way for the occupation authorities promptly granting the firm a new licence to publish,” the report said.

The Commission found that Bertelsmann made “indirect” use of Jewish slave labour in Latvia, and Lithuania but not at its German headquarters.

The then head of the company, Heinrich Mohn, also made donations to the SS, Hitler’s special forces and concentration camp guards.

True, he never joined the Nazi party, but his membership in the SS patrons’ group signalled his readiness for a political arrangement,” the report said.

The company had close ties to the Nazi regime, particularly the Propaganda Ministry, and printed 19 million books during World War II, making it the largest publisher for the German army.

The company immediately issued a statement apologising for its wartime activities and false corporate history.

The values of Bertelsmann then are irreconcilable with the company today. The company is now a global player in the media industry,” Tim Arnold, the corporate secretary of Bertelsmann told the BBC’s Today programme.

Sorry

Bertelsmann chairman Gunther Thielen said the company accepted the commission’s findings.

I would like to express our sincere regret for the inaccuracies the Commission has uncovered in our previous corporate history of the World War Two era as well as for the wartime activities that have been brought to light,” he said in a statement.

Mr Thielen said all the material used for the 800-page report would be made publicly available.

 used its “revised” history when it took over the biggest US book publisher Random house in 1998.

The commission of four historians was set up in the fallout of the takeover after media reports on Bertelsmann’s Nazi past.

About 6,000 German companies are contributing to a 5.1bn euro ($5bn) settlement with hundreds of thousands of Nazis slave labourers.

Other companies, such as Deutsche Bank and Dresdner Bank have also set up commissions into history during the Third Reich.

Not only was Stalker Joe’s publisher a shill for the Nazis, printing up Nazi propaganda, they also profited using Jewish slave labor, and contributed greatly towards the hatred of the Jewish people.

BTW, Barack Obama, author and well known anti-Semite, whose first book was written with the help of terrorist Bill Ayers (allegedly) and second book was based on a sermon by another well known Jew hater, Jeremiah Wright, is also part of the Random House stable of authors as they published both books. Seems like Bertelsmann hasn’t really changed much.  

Now who today most resembles the Nazis again?

Let’s see, the Nazis existed on division and hate. Who’s doing that now?

The Nazis used union thugs to perform beat downs and otherwise intimidate citizens. Tell me again who SEIU supports and who it performs beat downs for.

The Nazis showed over the top hatred for anybody and any thing that didn’t conform to their Marxist ideology. (Note to trolls …. spare me, Marxism and socialism is the same thing)

This reminds me, remember the death threats against Sarah from Marxist-democrats we discussed before? Karen Allen has a lot more, most of which are completely unprintable in some of the publications our blog appears, you can read them here. Warning, pure stomach churning hatred, from the left.

Oh, and let’s not forget the really disgusting thing the Marxist-democrats in this country, including Barack Obama, have the most in common with the Nazis. Their hatred of the Jews. Go to any left wing site, and if they are talking about the Jewish people, and Israel, it’s every bit as vile as anything you would have read in Nazi Germany. Some of this stuff would have made Hitler blush.

As expected, Obama has sided with radical Islam, and the terrorists in the latest dust up in the Gaza. Of course, since his best buddy, and domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers, and his 2008 campaign’s biggest money bundler, Jodie Evans are top instigators in this deal, along with Ayers’ cop killing wife, I guess one can figure it was never gonna be any other way.

There is most certainly a group in this country that resembles Nazis, but it isn’t Sarah Palin, and it isn’t Sarah Palin’s supporters.

As for McGinniss …. Can I call ya “Nazi Joe” ?

Sarah Palin’s Creepy, Deranged Stalker Goes On NBC, Calls Americans Nazis, Plays Supersized Victim Card

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 2, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

Is everyone as sick of Joe McGinniss, professional deranged stalker, as I am? It’s becoming very clear this guy is mentally unstable. He’s also a shameless liar of the first degree.

Anyhow, this sicko showed up on NBC’s Today Show with Matt Lauer. In a performance worthy of an Oscar ©, McGinniss lays it on thick. Of course, all of this is Sarah Palin’s fault, because, well, she’s Sarah Palin. This is like a wife beater blaming it all on the wife, or a child molester claiming it was all the child’s fault.

Video of this loserfest is here.

This nimrod, McGinniss, is now on his third separate story of how he came to be in the home next door to Sarah. Now it seems he came for the waters. This is just a nice vacation spot for his family. His wife, is coming to visit, you see. This is all just an innocent hapenstance that this home is located 15 feet from Sarah’s property. Pure coincidence. The sad part is, there will be people who believe this deranged loser.

Of course he whines about the fact that Sarah is upset. More proof this guy should be locked away in a mental institution. McGinniss has actively stalked Sarah for two years, if not longer, but in his mind, moving within mere feet of her home shouldn’t upset her. In fact, she should be thanking him, and of course, bake cookies! This guy has issues.

He also rants on and on about Sarah’s ability to incite hatred and violence. That’s the same tired old Marxist-democrat party talking point they have tried since the day John McCain introduced her to the world. I guess these loons never read the comments section over at hate sites like the Huffington Post, or Daily Kos, where it’s common to wish death on those they disagree with, and celebrate when death occurs.

McGinniss calls Sarah, and by extension, all Freedom and Liberty loving Americans, a Nazi, and calls her supporters the “hounds of hell.”( Note to self …. create “Sarah Palin’s Hounds from Hell” merchandise line ASAP …. daddy could use a vacation in the Bahamas )

It’s clear when you see this guy that he is a sick man who loves to project his sickness and hatred on others. He’s an obvious liar, and a major drama queen.

It’s interesting how he keeps coming back to Sarah’s children. Now yes, Sarah mentioned her daughter Piper, but she had good reason. If anyone has been paying attention over the last couple of years, they will notice something about Sarah. This woman is attacked daily with the most vile of hatred the left in this country can conjure up, but she can take it. I’m not sure there has ever been a stronger person in politics when it comes to this. However, you mess with her kids, even in the least, and good-natured Sarah Palin turns into Mama Grizzly. She will protect her kids at any cost. She sees McGinniss as a direct threat to her kids. So do we.

Robert Stacy McCain, who has written extensively about the hatemongers in Alaska, who comprise Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia ©, has a great piece on one of McGinniss’ buddies up there, Jesse Griffin, and manages to get some licks in on George Soro’s boy at the Washington Post, Dave Weigel:

Remember Jesse Griffin, who masqueraded behind the “Gryphen” pseudonym as a vicious anti-Palin blogger and Trig-Truther? And remember how he lost his job at an Alaska elementary school after his identity was revealed and school officials learned how he’d been promoting pornography and masturbation on his blog (extreme language warning) while being paid by taxpayers to supervise young children?

Well, guess what? Joe McGinnis is a “huge fan” of Jesse Griffin, as confirmed by none other than . . . Jesse Griffin:

I 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.)

– Jesse Griffin, a/k/a “Gryphen,” October 3, 2009

In case you didn’t get the reference, “IM” is Jesse’s “Immoral Minority” blog where he described his ironclad certainty that Sarah Palin’s fifth child “was not conceived in her uterus,” declared how much fun it is to “wank off” to amateur porn, advised youngsters that “your penis will respond more readily” if you practice by “watching porn on your computer.” and told the world that “it brings me joy to work with these children.

You betcha!

When this porn-blogging Trig-Truther obsessive Palin-hater was forced to resign from Trailside Elementary School in Anchorage in August 2009, it wasn’t exactly a secret. so why — two months later, in October 2009 – was Joe McGinniss raving about being a “huge fan” of Jesse Griffin’s Immoral Minority blog? Why is McGinniss laughing it up with Griffin at the “celebrity table” all night?

And why doesn’t it bother Dave Weigel that McGinniss is such a “huge fan” of a vile joke like Jesse Griffin and the obnoxious gadfly “AKM” (Jeanne Devon)?

McCain has much more with extensive supporting links here.

Jesse Griffin is a world class pervert, and with his fondness for sharing porn with kids, he could be Obama’s Safe and Drug Free Schools Czar. (If Obama didn’t have a NAMBLA loving pervert already in place, that is)

This guy lives in an alternate universe where he fantasizes about Sarah Palin constantly, and conjures up all sorts of outlandish lies, which he then posts on his blog, as other Mafia members, and hate filled fans salivate. Naturally, the media laps this guy’s BS up like crazy, and it becomes a nationa story.

Griffin started the “Trig truther” nonsense, claiming Trig is not Sarah’s son. He has written stories of a pending Palin divorce, on multiple accessions, just wanting to start controversy, and of course got the story going that the FBI was about to indict her, prompting the FBI to come out and say, no, this was a lie, and the FBI had no investigations on Sarah, nor was one planned.

It’s almost a daily ritual for this guy to make up a lie, and for stupid people to believe it. You can read more about Griffin, the rest of Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia, and see the video Obama doesn’t want you to see, here.

Growing up, I was told you can be judged by the company you keep. Well, knowing McGinniss chooses to keep company with world class liar and pervert, Jesse Griffin, as well as Barack Obama’s hand picked hatemongers, none of which having an ounce of credibility on any subject, it’s pretty safe to assume he is of the same bent.

Here’s the bottom line though, Sarah Palin is right to be concerned about Joe McGinniss living anywhere near her. This guy is not some poor innocent “journalist” just doing his job. He is a deranged stalker, and a mentally unstable degenerate. He’s a very dangerous type who should be watched at all times. She couldn’t do any worse if Charles Manson was her neighbor.

It’s interesting that Sarah’s hometown paper carried an editorial that ended with:

Finally, those who are fond of Joe McGinnis might remind him (if he doesn’t already know) that Alaska has a law that allows the use of deadly force in protection of life and property.

It’s quite obvious that at least some locals also have concerns that McGinniss has less than pure intentions. The guy is a voyeur. A Peeping Tom. A creepy, deranged stalker.

BTW, this is how Joe McGinniss acted when approached by reporters himself, as reported by the website Fire Andrea Mitchell:

Robin Roberts seems to enjoy the fact Palin is being stalked by left wing nut job Joe McGinniss, even saying this whole sick stalking episode would be a great SNL skit with Tiny Fey. Of course, had the same thing happened to her (though who in their right mind would want to stalk someone is freaky looking as Robin Roberts), I doubt she’d be as giddy.

Anyway an ABC reporter went to Joe McGinniss’s newly rented property to try and interview him. Needless to say it didn’t go very well as McGinnis threatened the nameless ABC reporter when he asked McGinniss to comment.

Tell me again who’s hysterical. What a drama queen. As for Robin Roberts, what a loser she is, but typical for what passes as “journalism” these days.

Now I know some people will say this is just Sarah Palin, and her millions of supporters world wide overreacting and being “hysterical” themselves.

We hear all of the time the Palin supporters are “aggressive” when it comes to supporting her and protecting her. Well, as I wrote before, Sarah Palin is America, and when you mess with America, America messes back. But there is a lot more than that.

You attack Sarah’s kids, like another world class pervert, David Letterman, has done, on multiple occasions, and she becomes Mama Grizzly. Well, after what we’ve witnessed for the last two years, when someone attacks Sarah Palin, we all become Mama (and Papa) Grizzlies and rally around her. We simply will not let this nonsense stand.

Below is just a very small sampling of the hatred and violence that has been directed towards Sarah Palin since she has become a national figure. It’s but a very small fraction of what we have seen and heard.

Back in October of 2008, some left wing haters thought it was just great to hang Sarah in effigy, and got world wide attention. Even though the community was up in arms, the city officials claimed “free speech” and let the hate roll on.

It might be noted these hate filled freaks tried to sell this thing on eBay, on multiple occasions, but eBay, much to their credit, blocked these bastards from using the website to profit from their insane hatred. You can read more here.

The next big event came at Christmas time in 2008. Demented thugs, in a manner reminiscent of the way Barack Obama’s best buddy Bill Ayers used to do it, firebombed Sarah’s church in Wasilla. There were people in the building, wrapping Christmas presents, at the time.

Like Ayers, the arsonists, set off multiple bombs, also used accelerants, and blocked exits, making it hard to get out of the flaming building. One can assume their intent was murder.

You can read local coverage of the arson here.

This crime has never been solved, nor has it gotten much coverage after the fact. One wonders what the media coverage would have been like, had this been Obama’s church rather than Sarah’s.

Sarah and her children, get death threats all of the time, and while no one likes to talk about it, here’s one notable hatemonger that was outed. This guy, who calls himself James Brown on Twitter, is a fan of Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow, naturally. Here’s just a sampling of what this guy was tweeting:

@sEaTtLe_MeTrO: Death 2 Palin family them retarded hillbillies take teabaggers w/ you hateful bitch

We cant expect gov to intervene we must shoot Gen. Palin on site be 4 her troops strike again!

@interactionswst one word racism choose sides plain and simply that bitch Palin launch an attack, she need 2 b shot on site!

@Palin360 you need 2 b assassinated soon we ll settle 4 one of the family if not u!

maybe it takes a murder or 2 2 get the point across take aim at radical TP members

@BRIANGLAD Palin will b met with gunfire her or her family

@SarahStormRpt u need 2 be shot on site startin that racist Tp shit, all you all do is promo violence dont cry when some kill u basterds

IS Sarah Palin still alive, please feel free 2 domecheck that bitch! she will look good in tha box the TP left on someones lawn

THe street gangs of america can take on the teabaggers and Palin. TP is callin 4 war just shoot any TP associates and family MS13 BITCHES!

This is but a small sampling of this guy’s hatred. Much is simply unprintable in a PG or even R rated setting. This is quite typical of these hate fill loons though, as anyone who has spent any time on Twitter, or the comments section of national websites, can attest. Marxists are evil and violent. It’s interesting how this crazed Marxist-democrat rants on and on about how violent Sarah supposedly is, while asking anyone reading his BS to go out and kill her, and all “teabaggers.”

This is the tweet that got everyone’s attention though:

Does anyone have that alaskan address 4 the Palins?

You can read more here. This guy is still on Twitter, BTW, and is still spewing hatred towards anything and everything that doesn’t conform to his diseased outlook on the world.

There is a lot more one can write about, again, this is but a minute sampling of the vile hatred that is directed towards Sarah and her family on a daily basis. So …. pardon us, and Sarah Palin, if we aren’t pleased that Joe McGinniss, a mentally unstable, crazed stalker, plagiarist and liar has moved in next door. This guy is as evil as the Alaska freaks he hangs out with when he comes to the state.

Oh, and that Nazi thing. You mean like Barack Obama using the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) as his personal army, the way Hitler used unions and brown shirts? You know, like the time he was going off on American citizens who dared complain at townhall meeting last year? Like when the Obama regime told the purple shirted SEIU thugs to go “punch back twice as hard“?

It seems they listened well. The Purple Shirts showed up in St Louis, and attacked Kenneth Gladney, beating him unconscious, while calling him a ni**er.

Or how about the recent attack by the Purple Shirts of the SEIU, who terrorized a Maryland banker. D.C. Police reportedly escorted over 500 of Obama’s union thug army to the man’s home, where they proceeded to stand on his lawn and raise holy hell. What makes this atrocity even worse, is while the banker wasn’t home, his young son was, and was understandably in fear for his life. You can read more here, here, and here.

So tell me again why Sarah Palin shouldn’t be concerned about crazed stalker Joe McGinnis. The Obama regime and it’s followers deal in nothing but hate and intimidation. They are violent thugs who are capable of anything. Sarah has been under assault from Obama’s hand picked little army of bloggers and other assorted hate mongers for two solid years. She’s had more lies told about her than any person I’ve ever known of, and unprecedented hatred directed toward her.

Sarah is right to be pissed off that a mentally unstable stalker is next door, and is right to be pissed off at all of those who support this, or any other action taken by the far left.

These losers do this, of course, because Sarah Palin is a fighter. She’s a hero to tens of millions worldwide, who still believe in America, and still believe in America’s greatness. Sarah Palin is the one person who will not stand by and let Barack Obama, and the rest of his Marxist fellow travelers, destroy this great nation.

This is why they attack her, this is why they cheer when a madman moves next door and makes her life miserable. They know the nation is behind Sarah Palin, not them. They know that Sarah Palin is America, not them. They know Sarah Palin is ready to promote real change in America, not them. They know that Sarah Palin is the real leader of this nation, not them. They also know that Sarah Palin, and America, will triumph over all of them, and there is nothing they can do about it.

Obviously, this upsets the Marxists, who they thought the could destroy America, upset to no end.

Sarah Palin doesn’t “incite” she inspires, like all great leaders do.

Bad news for the left.

For me, I’m just sick and tired of Joe McGinniss. This guy is a liar, and a creep. A deranged loser who shouldn’t be allowed in public. Those that care about this guy, really care about this guy, should get him to the nearest mental health facility for a long, long rest, and rehabilitation.

Fact Checking The Palin Fence

Posted by Sheya on May 31, 2010

No, you’re not hallucinating, you’re reading this correctly. The LSM is now fact checking the Wasilla border the Palin’s built to keep unwelcome predators from spying into their house, the Mat-Su-Yan Frontiersman Reports:

The “Today” show called Friday morning saying it plans to come up Monday and do some interviews about the fence Todd and Sarah Palin built on their property on Lake Lucille.

[…]

So the call from “Today,” quickly followed by a similar call from ABC news, seemed curious. The day before it was another national news outlet wanting to know if we had a photograph of the fence. There was an e-mail from Outside asking if the Palins were in compliance with city code.

The AP appointed 11 reporters to fact check the Governor’s memoir. Now we have prominent news networks fact checking a fence she built up in her yard.

The hypocrisy here is astronomical. When, in light of the Obama administration’s slow response to the oil spill, Governor Palin merely suggested that the media do its’ job and question the administration’s close ties to BP, there was an outcry from the left – how dare the Governor question the President.

After the White House released its’ statement in relation to the Joe Sestak affair, the left brushed it off as just another day in Washington.

Let’s get this straight; when dealing with the nation’s biggest environmental disaster in history, the livelihoods of thousands of people are at stake, it’s apparently wrong to ask questions. When the White House gets caught up in an alleged political bribery scandal it’s simply business as usual. But when Governor Palin erects a fence to keep a writer who has a record of missing a lot and exaggerating the rest out from seeing a lot and fantasizing the rest – oh, that must be fact checked.

For its’ part the Frontiersman notes:

Maybe we’re out of step here, but the unanimous consensus of the newsroom is that we don’t really care if the Palins want some privacy from what they worry might be prying eyes.

Fences have been known to make good neighbors and everybody knows we could use a lot more of those around here. So if the fence keeps McGinnis on one side and the Palins content, why would the “Today” show or ABC care?

Finally, those who are fond of Joe McGinnis might remind him (if he doesn’t already know) that Alaska has a law that allows the use of deadly force in protection of life and property.

At least there is still someone out there in the media with a sense of common courtesy and honest reporting.

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.

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

It Seems That Sarah Palin’s Crazed Stalker, Joe McGiniss, Has A Habit Of This Kind Of Behavior With Others

Posted by Gary P Jackson on May 27, 2010

In the middle of putting together some updates on the continuing saga of Sarah Palin’s crazed, unethical stalker, I was forward this information that I think takes priority. We’ll have our planned follow-up posted later.

The website Wizbang reports the following:

Sarah Palin announced on her Facebook page that Joe McGinniss, author of the infamous book Fatal Vision that chronicled the story of Jeffrey MacDonald, has rented the house right next door to hers. It seems he’s chosen her has the subject of his next book. Lucky her. While she keeps the tone of her post upbeat and positive, it’s clear she is disturbed to know that someone so hostile and antagonistic toward her is watching her and her family’s every move.

Since Palin published her post, the blogosphere has been all atwitter about this development. Many people find it creepy. Those in the tried and true anti-Palin camp say she’s the one who’s out of line and criticize her for being “unprofessional and paranoid.”

[ ….]

McGinniss’ publisher responded with a statement that read in part:

Well regarded for his in-depth, up-close reporting, Mr. McGinniss will be highly respectful of his subject’s privacy as he investigates her public activities.”

Well regarded? Highly respectful? I’d like to know which Joe McGinniss they’re talking about because it isn’t the Joe McGinniss who moved next door to Sarah Palin.

Let’s take a look at how McGinniss put together his book Fatal Vision, the story about Jeffrey MacDonald, and see how well regarded and highly respectful he is.

Joe McGinniss was hired by MacDonald’s defense team to write a book that would exonerate him. McGinniss, to research his book, became MacDonald’s shadow during the trial. He had full access to every aspect of his defense. He even moved in with him for a while.

He became MacDonald’s most loyal supporter. He wrote letters to him in which he professed his belief that he was innocent. Joe McGinniss gained MacDonald’s confidence to the point that MacDonald opened his soul to him. He told McGinniss everything: about his relationship with his wife, his father in law, his kids. Everything. Through it all, McGinniss continued to tell MacDonald that he was on his side and that he would make sure the world knew of MacDonald’s innocence. MacDonald was eventually convicted, but McGinniss remained loyal and told him to be patient until until the book came out because it would prove his innocence and the nation would rally to side

When the book was finally published, MacDonald realized he had been brutally deceived. McGinniss portrayed MacDonald as a psychopathic, enraged, drug crazed murderer. It turned out the entire time McGinniss fawned over MacDonald and told him how much he believed in his innocence, McGinniss was writing the exact opposite.

MacDonald was so disgusted at McGinniss’ deception that he filed a federal lawsuit against him. During the course of the trial McGinniss admitted under oath during questioning by MacDonald’s lawyer that he didn’t even believe the theory he promoted in the book:

Fourteen years ago, Joe McGinniss’s best-selling book, Fatal Vision, depicted MacDonald as guilty. McGinniss theorized that MacDonald had abused diet pills, had suffered a violent amphetamine psychosis, and in a fit of rage, had murdered his family because one of the children wet the bed. The book and the pursuant movie convinced millions that this actually occurred. Yet, in a sworn deposition on October 30, 1986, McGinniss, incredibly, admitted he did not personally believe his own theory. He explained, under oath, that he had introduced the diet pill theory as a dramatic device in his “new journalism” where the story is more important than the facts. When asked why he said that he’d learned MacDonald had ingested an overdose of diet pills (which he had not learned at all), he said he hadn’t wanted to give his readers the same old “rehash of the trial.”

McGinniss finally revealed his true feelings about his central theory, the theory that had made him rich, and had convinced millions of people that MacDonald was guilty. Under oath, during hard questions by MacDonald’s attorney, he admitted, “I’m not convinced that it actually happened.”

The trial ended in a 5-1 hung jury in MacDonald’s favor. According to MacDonald’s account, “the hold out juror had refused to deliberate after fellow jurors rebuffed her attempts to spend time listening to her views on animal rights.

McGinniss paid MacDonald $325,000 to avoid a retrial he knew he would surely lose.

Janet Malcolm wrote about MacDonald’s law suit and Joe McGinniss’ shocking duplicity in her book The Journalist and the Murderer.

In the early 90’s Jerry Allen Potter and Fred Bost took up MacDonald’s story and reexamined the case against him. What they found really was shocking. The authors, through Freedom of Information Act requests, learned that numerous documents, pieces of physical evidence, and witness testimony that supported MacDonald’s account of what happened the night his family was murdered had been suppressed by the judge and the prosecution. Potter and Bost published it in their book Fatal Justice that outlines how Jeffrey MacDonald is innocent. The author of this San Francisco Chronicle book review detailed some of the evidence that was suppressed, and the details from this account alone are so damning that I could not help but yell at my computer screen, “why the hell is this man still in prison?” Take a look:

Relying on documents released under the Freedom of Information Act — more than 10,000 pages of investigative reports, witness statements, affidavits, handwritten lab notes, transcripts, official letters and other documents, Potter and Bost deftly chart a snowballing chain of events leading to a virtual legal whiteout by the time of MacDonald’s 1979 trial.

The authors say that key findings supporting MacDonald’s version of events — that a Manson-like group had committed the crimes — were never presented to the jury. They found, for example, evidence of fresh candle wax drippings that did not match any candles in the home and were found precisely where MacDonald reported he saw flickering candlelight while struggling with his attackers; three bloodstained gloves; (the implication was that one person would not need three gloves, whereas four people likely would); blonde wig hairs found on a hairbrush (MacDonald said the candle was held by a blond woman in a floppy hat) and numerous unidentified fibers and hairs near the bodies of Kimberly, Kristen and Colette that did not match MacDonald’s or anything in the home. In all, Bost and Potter describe in detail 21 items of physical evidence never presented in MacDonald’s defense that clearly point to the presence of others. Among them: a bloody syringe and an unidentified piece of skin under Colette’s fingernail that was extensively tested and subsequently disappeared when it did not match MacDonald’s.

Potter and Bost document new witnesses, including neighbors in the building where the MacDonalds lived who remember sights and sounds on the night of the murder but were never interviewed by the Army. They also review the testimony of witnesses interviewed earlier — most notably drug abuser Helena Stoeckley, who on at least six occasions revealed details of the murders that only someone involved could have known, such as the S shape poked into Kristen’s chest with an ice pick. Stoeckley, who died in the early 1980s, said the S stood for “Satan.” Despite such confessions and a lack of alibi, Stoeckley and two of her companions, who fit descriptions provided by MacDonald, were never brought in for questioning.

The army said the crime scene was well protected. It was not,” say the authors. “They said it was competently searched. It was not. They said they could prove the scene was staged by MacDonald. They did not. They said neighbors saw and heard nothing that night. Not true. The army and the government said nothing was found to support the presence of intruders at the scene. That was false. And, now that we know about the hair in Colette’s hand, the bloody syringe, the multiple bloody gloves, the piece of skin, the wig hair, and the black wool fibers, this was the cruelest lie of all.

After looking at the case, how it was handled, as well as the suppressed evidence, Alan Dershowitz, too, was convinced that the government suppressed critical amounts of evidence that would have proven MacDonald’s innocence. He discussed the government’s cover up in his book America on Trial. Judge Andrew Napolitano (yes, Judge Andrew Napolitano at Fox News) thinks the government framed MacDonald as well and wrote about the government’s blatant misconduct in his book Lies the Government Told You.

MacDonald and his lawyers had the chance to appeal his conviction on March 23 of this year, and they may get a new trial because of this previously suppressed evidence. I hope he gets it, primarily because from where I sit, this is one of the most egregious examples of government abuse that I have ever seen (I would expect nothing less from China) and partly because I’d like to see McGinniss’s book blow up in his face.

Now, if Joe McGinniss truly was the “well regarded” and “highly respectful” investigative journalist his publishing house said he is, why he didn’t actually do the legwork MacDonald’s defense team paid him to do and investigate and report MacDonald’s story? The answer is obvious: a book about a handsome Army doctor who turned psychopathic and drug crazed and viciously murdered his beautiful – and pregnant – wife and two young daughters is far more compelling and sells far more books than a book about prosecutorial misconduct, as evidenced by the fact that many people have heard of Fatal Vision but few have heard of Fatal Justice.

All this makes it even more disturbing that McGinniss has now targeted Sarah Palin for the same kind of treatment he gave Jeffrey MacDonald. Even though Sarah Palin is in a position where she can defend herself against McGinniss’s lies, whereas MacDonald could not, there are still a lot of people in this country who hate her and her family so much that they will believe anything negative about her, no matter how untrue.

What an unethical son-of-a-bitch Joe McGinnis is.

Man, this is simple proof that McGinnis is not only creepy, but a liar of the highest order that can’t be trusted by anyone. This is the sort of fellow that if it was high noon, and he told you the sun was shining, you’d be compelled to step outside to verify.

We have talked about the fact that McGinnis has been stalking Sarah for some time. We talked about his bidding $60,000 to have dinner with her. What we failed to mention is the fact that he pursued her on her book tour. McGinnis “broke” the story that Sarah Palin, as shocking as it sounds, flies on airplanes. This loon seemed shocked that Sarah Palin wasn’t on her tour bus 24/7 and wrote a hate filled, nonsensical piece about it.

You see, what this gutter snipe either couldn’t grasp, or in his zeal to smear Sarah, didn’t care, is the fact that Sarah’s schedule often saw her at a book signing in the morning, with afternoon and evening signings hundreds of miles apart. Many times it was simply impossible to go from one signing to the other by bus, because the distance was greater than the time allotted for travel would allow. As such, her publisher: HarperCollins provided air travel. Pretty standard stuff.

We’ve also learned that McGinniss, ignoring all sorts on “no trespassing” signs, actually showed up on Sarah’s doorstep trying to give her a book he had written. This is beyond creepy. It’s sick.

We are also learning more about the situation concerning the house he rented next door to Sarah, and how that came to be. We’ll have comments on this as well, once we have a better picture, but it seems to be yet another well orchestrated scheme by the Marxists to smear Sarah Palin.

The bottom line though is this. Joe McGinniss is a freak, and a liar. Joe McGinnis has a long history of being a freak and a liar. He has zero credibility whatsoever. One is compelled to think that every word that comes out of his mouth, or is put to the printed page by his hand, is an out and out lie, until proven otherwise.

Video; Megyn Kelly on Palin’s Stalker: This is Really Deplorable

“This is really deplorable,” said Megyn Kelly, speaking of Joe McGinniss moving 15 feet from the Palin home as he writes an unauthorized biography of the family.

Kelly and a couple legal experts discussed whether or not his being there is legal and what the Governor’s options are. As I wrote last night here, this is no regular author. This man writes hit pieces about her, bid thousands of dollars in an unsuccessful attempt to trap her into having dinner with him, showed up in Florida during her book tour, and now has left Massachusetts to move to Wasilla, Alaska to watch her from a few feet away–on his deck, allegedly with binoculars. Not only is his presence there unethical, it’s sick–and certainly a cause for concern. Governor Palin and her children deserve better.
