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.

Ten tell-tale symptoms of Palin Derangement Syndrome (PDS)

Posted by joshpainter on March 1, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
Our liberal friends may suffer from PDS if they believe…

  1. that crosshairs over congressional districts on a SarahPAC map incite violence, but crosshairs over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s face on a union goon’s protest sign do not;
  2. that criticism of Obama’s policies by Sarah Palin are “hate speech,” but personal attacks on Gov. Palin by Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews and Media Matters are not;
  3. that a telephone scam by two Canadian deejays proves Sarah Palin is dumb, but TIME magazine is still smart, even though it reported a satirical piece about Sarah Palin attacking Christina Aguilera as real;
  4. that Sarah Palin is stupid, but Rachel Maddow is smart, even though the MSPDS host fell for another satirical piece about Sarah Palin calling for the invasion of Egypt;
  5. that Joy Behar, who called Sarah Palin “dumb” is smart, even though “The View” panelist also said that “Black Friday” was a “racist” term;
  6. that Gov. Palin crossed the line by using the term blood libel, but use of the same term by Andrew Sullivan, Eugene Robinson and other “progressives” was within acceptable boundaries;
  7. that Sarah Palin supporters are ill-informed on key issues, but Obama supporters are well-informed on the same issues;
  8. that Sarah Palin really said she could see Russia from her house;
  9. that the same media which ignored the burning of the church Sarah Palin and her family attend is really concerned about civility;
  10. that “birthers” who question Barack Obama’s place of birth are hateful lunatics, but “birfers” who question whether Trig Palin really is Sarah’s son are tolerant, caring people in full control of their mental faculties.

William Dixon Breaks Down ‘What Exactly is Wrong with Sarah Palin…’

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 26, 2011

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

Read this article by William Dixon about what’s behind the disdain for Governor Palin by those on the Left and the Right:

Rush Limbaugh is fond of saying the left will always tell you whom they fear by making that person the focus of their most virulent attacks. The left despises Sarah Palin. They say she is stupid and incapable of ever assuming the role of president. They mock her education, (B.S. University of Idaho), her small town background and her political accomplishments ( 2006 – 2009 Governor of Alaska ). When she resigned the governorship, they said she was a quitter. Just recently, the left indicted her as being responsible for the shooting of Congresswoman [Giffords] in Arizona.

But what of pundits on the right, the Peggy Noonan-Karl Rove types? They hold Palin in equally low esteem. And what of conservative women? Many just viscerally dislike her. Ask them about Palin. You’ll get a response which begins with a shaking of the head and some comment about being inexperienced. Press them for facts. You will find most of these women ignorant of Palin’s background and remarkable accomplishments. Why is that?

Is it because Sarah Palin does not look at all like the admired but camera-challenged women in government, such as Hillary Clinton and Justice Sotomeyer? She has not the stern, formal look of a Maggie Thatcher, the British Prime Minister who turned around England’s economy nor of Golda Meir, the tough former leader of Israel. Palin is softer, attractive, plain spoken albeit with a sometimes irritating voice. Does her appearance put people, especially women, off?

[…]

Sarah Palin is openly Christian and prays regularly. She was president of a Christian group in high school. She is “pro life” and rejected terminating her last pregnancy when she found she was carrying a baby with Down’s Syndrome. Perhaps that is the problem for some of her critics.

It seems unlikely that her performance as mayor of Wasilla, cutting taxes while expanding the town’s facilities so that it could grow, would be anything but a plus. Just so her role as a member of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. She outed two corrupt officials, one of whom was chairman of the state Republican Party.

Was she wrong in running for governor to oust a corrupt and wasteful officer of her own political party? Was it lack of wisdom which led her to sell the state plane, cut expenses of her office by 75 percent and pass a bipartisan ethics bill? Was she impolite in chasing away the oil company lobbyists so that she could start work on a stalled pipeline for natural gas? Not likely.

President Obama was elected because he appeared to be extraordinary. His academic pedigree and soaring rhetoric shielded from voters his appalling lack of real-world experience and complete lack of substantial accomplishments. His presidency is struggling.

By contrast, Sarah Palin, despite her talents and obvious achievements, seems very ordinary. Americans, believing the smears and punditry, will likely reject Palin without really getting to know her. Once again the nod will go to a member of the cultural elite, a group which has routinely failed to govern well.

Read this in its entirety here.

Let me make two points right away. First, I have never found Governor Palin’s voice “irritating.” I’m not sure where that comes from. Second, I disagree with Dixon’s final point: the nod will not go to an elite just for the sake of selecting an elite. We are in a unique time in political history, a time where people are fed up to the ceiling with politics as usual. I choose to believe that once the campaigning–with its competitive primary season, speech-making, fact-checking, and lovers of truth holding the lamestream media’s feet to the fire–ends, the American people are going to know the candidates, and they will respond by speaking loudly and clearly in the voting booth. And should Governor Palin decide to run, they will know her. This, I believe, will cause her to be the last one standing.

William Dixon’s piece should be quite thought-provoking for those who need to do some soul-searching about why they harbor such disdain for Governor Palin. Those of us who are not so deranged are not surprised by many of the points he makes. Governor Palin is an accomplished woman whose record alone merits the respect of being considered a formidable, viable candidate for President of the United States.

MSNBC Axes Keith ‘PDS’ Olbermann

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 22, 2011

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

MSNBC has been a leader in nasty, vile, slanderous rhetoric about Governor Palin. So much so that I simply cannot stomach them; I don’t even try. Keith Olbermann has been among the chiefest of offenders. But no more. If he’s going to continue his PDS-inspired hate-fest, he will have to do it somewhere else. MSNBC, merging with Comcast, axed him last night.

Josh Painter breaks down Olbermann’s record, putting his anti-Palin mania into perspective:

Keith Olberman, has been abruptly fired by MSNBC, apparently during Friday night’s show. More here. Just last month he dubbed Bristol Palin the “Worst Person In The World” for her role as an ambassador for abstinence with the Candies Foundation, and as recently as Tuesday misrepresented a CNN poll in a ridiculous attempt to tie Sarah Palin to the Tucson shootings.

Olby has been a frequent critic of Bristol’s mom beginning just days after she was announced as John McCain’s running mate more than two years ago. On September 17 of 2008, he falsely accused Gov. Palin of cutting funding for the Special Olympics by half in Alaska. He has bashed the first woman to be both governor of Alaska and the Republican Party’s vice presidential candidate as a “phony” and an “idiot,” and has named her “Worst Person In The World” a number of times. The hysterical host also labeled Gov. Palin and other critics of ObamaCare “subhumans,” “ghouls,” and “fiends.” After Sarah Palin called David Letterman out for making a crude sexual “joke” about her teenage daughter Willow, Olbermann called the governor “sanctimonious, holier than thou, exploitative, undignified, pedantic, childish, self-inflicting, insipid, backwards, embarrassing, over-reactive, overreaching” as well as a “delusional lunatic.” Even after all of his slandering of Sarah, the not-too-bright Bathtub Boy couldn’t seem to understand why she would not be itching to appear on the network of hate, referring to her as a coward and throwing in for bad measure “idiot-woman” and “idiot.” And that’s only the highlight reel.

Read more here.

You reap what you sow, and Olbermann has sown much hatred, ill-wishes, and downright evil seeds regarding Governor Palin. I’ll leave it at that.

Latest ADN PDS Rant an Epic Fail: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on November 28, 2010

The PDS, liberal infested Anchorage Daily News is at it again. While trashing Sarah Palin is a regular occurrence over at this liberal news rag, they have set their sick, twisted sights on attacking her 20-year-old daughter, Bristol. The ADN has published a piece by Paul Jenkins, editor of the Anchorage Daily Planet. Jenkins has written a hate-filled piece criticizing Bristol for having the nerve to defend her mother and herself against the “haters” during her time as a contestant on ABC‘s Dancing with the Stars. Get this: It seems as if Jenkins’ main beef with Bristol stems from the fact that Bristol called out those who have attacked her and her mom. Oh, how scandalous:

In the Palins’ strange world, haters lurk always just in the shadows, enemies of all that is decent. They are out to sink Bristol’s boat, to make her mother’s struggling television show even more boring than it is — the high point so far was Bristol’s aggravated battery on a halibut — and to sideline mom’s political aspirations, and not necessarily in that order. (As a matter of full disclosure, I have a “Haters” T-shirt and am wearing it as I write this, but I know haters, and I’m no hater. It takes too much energy. I’m more of a cranky disliker.)
It is clear that the only delusional person here is the author of this ridiculous piece. Last I checked, DWTS had its highest ratings ever AND Sarah Palin’s Alaska was the most-watched series premiere in TLC‘s history.I guess Jenkins thinks outdoor lovers like the Palins are just a boring bunch of losers. I’d hate to think how he would describe himself. After all, what kind of a person would admit to wearing a “Haters” t-shirt? That’s almost as bad as someone waking around with the word “loser” on his forehead, but I am not putting it past someone of Jenkins’ caliber to do something like that either.

It is apparent that Jenkins needs to get a life. Did it ever occur to him that the Palin family are loved and adored by many? I find it ironic that as the mainstream, lamestream media find their readership numbers on the verge of nonexistent, the more the Palin family is finding continued success. This illustrates just how powerful this family is. It is apparent that Jenkins is jealous as is the case with so many Palin-family haters. Instead of writing about something newsworthy, Jenkins wasted perfectly good newspaper space to attack a young woman who never so much as looked in his direction. Yet, this how the typical PDS-infected folks seem to lead their lives now-a-days. Jenkins continues his rant:
Palin’s persistent use of the term now has been embraced by her daughter. For Bristol, one can only hope such insanity will pass; that she will see her life should be more than hating haters; that sometimes our worst enemies can be our best friends; that not all critics deserve “a big middle finger.” But for the lovely Sarah P., a woman toying with the notion of being president of the United States, it may be too late.

Her world is very black and very white. I just hate that.

If Mr. Jenkins had any class whatsoever, he would have realized a long time ago that the Palins don’t give a darn about the media and what they think. Bristol Palin is a strong, fierce, determined young woman who will do great things during her lifetime- no doubt about it. I think it is time for Mr. Jenkins and his PDS-deranged friends to find a better way to spend their time. After all, last time I checked, it is Christmastime, a time for giving. I suggest Mr. Jenkins repay the crappy ADN for publishing his piece by going out there and getting them a few more readers. Good luck finding those readers. Note to the ADN subscriber department: I have a feeling people will be too busy watching Sarah Palin’s Alaska to answer the door or pick up the phone.
