Barack Obama’s Best Buddy, Terrorist Bill Ayers, & Top Campaign Bundler Jodie Evans Are Top Activists With Gaza Flotilla Group

But of course. I would have expected nothing less.

This from Gateway Pundit:

Barack Obama’s close family friends, terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, and top campaign bundler Jodie Evans from Code Pink are top activists with the Gaza flotilla group that attacked the IDF today.
Code Pink activist and radical leftist Jodie Evans was one of Barack Obama’s top bundlers during the 2008 campaign.

The Real Barack Obama reported:

Aaron Klein, Jerusalem bureau chief for World Net Daily, reports from New York:
The group behind the Gaza flotilla that engaged in deadly clashes with Israeli commandos today counts among its top activists Weather Underground terrorist founders William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn as well as Jodie Evans, the leader of the radical activist organization Code Pink
.
Ayers and Dohrn were close associates for years with President Obama, while Evans was a fundraiser and financial bundler for Obama’s presidential campaign.

Earlier today, Israeli navy commandos raided the six-ship flotilla, encountering heavy resistance and live fire from the activists. Nine activists were killed and dozens of others were reportedly injured, as were several of the Israeli commandos.

The flotilla was organized by the Free Gaza Movement, a coalition of leftist human rights activists and pro-Palestinian groups engaged in attempts to break a blockade imposed by Israel on the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

Ayers, Dohrn and Evans’ Code Pink have led several recent Free Gaza Movement initiatives, including attempted marches into the Gaza Strip. Dorhn was in the Middle East just last month on behalf of the movement.

Evan’s Code Pink, a supposed “peace” group, have long been supporters of any and all groups dedicated to the destruction of Israel. The more violent, the better.

It’s also no surprise that Obama’s best friends and neighbors, Ayers and Dohrn have a hand in all of this. These are violent, unrepentant murderers who set of bombs in police stations and military recruiting centers nationwide, as well as bombing the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol building, and New York City police headquarters.

As you may recall, Dohrn, a convicted felon for her part in the violent murder of police officers, is Bill Ayers’ second wife. His first wife blew up herself and other members of Ayers’ Weather Underground terrorist organization, while making a bomb filled with nails and other shrapnel that was to be planted at a military dance.

It should be noted that Ayers, a devout communist who has mentored Obama for years, and once encouraged his followers to “kill all of the rich people” is himself quite wealthy. His father, Thomas Ayers was President and CEO of Commonwealth Edison, and reportedly left his murdering terrorist son quite well off when he died in 2007.

Obama’s hatred for Israel, and willingness to work with terrorist organizations that support Israel’s demise is well documented. This is, of course, quite troubling for most Americans, who stand with Israel, unconditionally. Still, even for Obama, this is a shocking revelation, and more proof the man isn’t fit for office.

Obama has close ties to some of the most evil people ever known, dangerous murderers, communist thugs, and demented swine. He does not represent America in the least. Instead, Obama represents the enemies of Freedom and Liberty, worldwide, quite well. He should be forced to answer for all of this. This is simply unacceptable.

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has an incredible write up about the Gaza attacks, complete with video here and Allahpundit has more here.

Here’s just a sampling of video that can be seen at Hot Air:

Remember, two of Obama’s closest friends are involved in this. They are supporting this, and funding this. Again, this is simply unacceptable, and this act should not be allowed to go unpunished. This is no less than an act of war against our ally and friend, and proof Obama is not a friend of Liberty and Freedom, but is a friend of radical Islam, and terrorism, and unfit to continue as President of these United States.

Memorial Day A Time To Remember Freedom Ain’t Free

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

John 15:13

For me it’s always hard to put into words exactly how I feel on Memorial Day. How exactly does one say enough about those who give their last full measure of devotion in service of their country? Compared to that, how can any words ever be sufficient?

The United States military is the greatest force for good the world has ever known. Our brave men and women have fought and died to not only keep America free, but to ensure freedom and liberty around the world. Hundreds of millions have been liberated from tyranny and oppression because of our brave fighting forces.

In the course of keeping America safe, and Liberty’s Light shining bright, too many brave warriors have been lost. I am constantly in awe of these great men and women who put their lives on the line every day. Ours is a professional army. Every member is there because they choose this as their profession, their calling. They do this knowing they face grave danger. They are the bravest of the brave.

Ted Nugent writing in the Washington Times offers this salute to our fallen. He reminds us that every day should be Memorial Day:

Every day is Memorial Day

We owe America’s warriors who gave their lives for freedom

I live to remember. I have not forgotten that America is still at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, that our finest citizens have volunteered to put themselves in harm’s way in the name of freedom. The media overall have done a grave disservice to our warriors and their families, who have been asked to sacrifice so much. The war is now barely covered by the media.

Maybe so-called journalists have forgotten. The media have moved on.

Not me. I have chosen to dig in and never forget. Not a day goes by that I am not reminded, often painfully, that America is at war. The cards, letters, pictures and e-mails I receive on a daily basis from America’s finest and their families embolden me to be a better American, to be even more appreciative of the freedoms, liberties and opportunities provided me and you with the blood of warriors. These brave American warriors and the warriors who have gone before them humble me to my core. There are no words to express my appreciation for their bravery, commitment and sacrifice. The same goes for their families, who are left behind to soldier on while their loved ones go off to war. God bless them all.

We owe it to these brave Americans and their families to win this war with our honor intact, not to telegraph to the enemy when we are packing up and leaving the battlefield. I’m no military tactician, but announcing when we are leaving the battlefield is analogous to putting an ad in your local newspaper to let all local punks and thugs know when you are going on vacation so they can plunder your home.

I stand with most Americans demanding a victory strategy, not an exit strategy.

When we commit our troops to war, we must make a commitment to them and their families that we will achieve total victory through the application of total war.

Of the thousands of brave American warriors I have met since Sept. 11, 2001, not one has expressed a desire to leave the battlefield without victory. They all want to stay and finish the job. The commander in chief should remember how freedom has been achieved throughout history and let these trained warriors do their job. That’s how I remember.

As parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, we owe it to America’s finest to educate the youth of the United States that many brave Americans have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom. Teach them that freedom isn’t free. Teach them that the American military has freed more people from the shackles of tyranny and slavery than any other force in the history of the world. Teach them to remember this not just on Memorial Day, but every day.

America is at war. Thousands of Americans have paid the ultimate sacrifice, and thousands more have been wounded. Pause to remember them this Memorial Day. Say a prayer for the warriors and their families. They are the world’s true freedom fighters.

Never forget them. Make every day Memorial Day.

Sarah Palin offers her remembrance and thanks.



Memorial Day, to Remember Past and Present Sacrifice

Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic.”

- General Orders No.11, Grand Army of the Republic Headquarters, May 5, 1868

This weekend, as we enjoy time with family and friends, we should stop and remember the meaning of this national holiday. Memorial Day is a uniquely American holiday that finds its origins in the aftermath of our Civil War, when our country searched for a proper way to commemorate the many who had fallen in the long struggle to end slavery and unify our nation.

Today, we remember all of those throughout our history and to this very day who gave their lives serving our country in uniform. Our prayers are especially with the surviving family members for whom everyday is memorial day, as they live on remembering their loved ones who died selflessly to protect the freedoms we hold dear.

And on Memorial Day, let us also remember all veterans, past and present, because everyone who wears the uniform and swears the oath is willing to make that ultimate sacrifice for America. So, in honoring them let’s keep in mind this version of a popular poem as we show respect for those willing to sacrifice all for our exceptional country:

It is the veteran, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the veteran, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the veteran, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the veteran, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the veteran, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the veteran, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.

It is the veteran, who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag, and whose coffin will be draped by the flag.

- Sarah Palin

(Enjoy this version of the poem recited by Fred Thompson.)

No truer words were ever spoken. We are the land of the free, because we are the home of the brave. Remember this every time you see one of our brave men and women in uniform. Take time, go over and thank them. These are our finest.

And never, ever, forget those who have given their full measure of devotion so that all of us remain free.

WaPo Gives Sarah Palin’s Freaky-Deaky Stalker A Forum To Be Even Freakier And Deakier!

By Gary P. Jackson

If you want to know what I, and others, think about Dave Weigel, look no further than right here. This unprincipled fraud isn’t worth a whole hell of a lot more of my time.

Joe McGinniss on the other hand has my full attention. This is the most unhinged, unethical, untrustworthy, bottom feeding parasite, in what can laughingly be called “journalism.”

This is a loser who took money from a man, to help him tell his story of innocence in a murder trial, acted like the guy’s best friend, and then for the sake of having a “better story for his book” turned on the guy and got him convicted. Can you get more evil than that?

It’s well documented that McGinniss has been stalking Sarah Palin for some time. A recap can be found here.

It’s funny, now that the Sarah, and millions of her powerful supporters are calling McGinniss out on his deranged pursuits, and turning up the heat on him, he’s crying like a baby. He’s playing the victim card.

If this guy wasn’t such a devious ass, it would be funny. This whack job had no problem going to Sarah’s house, ignoring all sorts of “no trespassing” signs in order to try and give her some book he wrote. (after viciously trashing her in print)

That bit a creepiness happened a while back, but this week, after making a real ass out of himself, the local media decided to pay old Joe a visit and ask him some questions. Oh hell…Joe freaked out! He promised to call the cops if the reporter didn’t “leave ‘his’ property“! Of course, he was too chickenshit to actually come outside, and talked to the reporter through a window. Later on, he was seen putting up “no trespassing” signs of his own. I kid you not.

Like all Marxist-progressives, it seems this freak show can dish it out, but absolutely can’t take it. He’s almost as thin skinned as Barack Obama!

This is almost as good as Alaska Mafia © member, and serial Palin harasseser, HuffPo hate blogger, and Obama sycophant, Jeanne Devon (AKMuckraker at Mudflats) going crazy because she was caught on tape as being part of Obama’s Alaska Mafia© ! Devon, who was also pissed when her real name was outed to the world (by an Alaska democrat lawmaker who was sick of her crap) really lost it when the tape was released proving Obama and his people were behind the attacks on Sarah. She and her thug friends worked 24/7 having You Tube pull those down.

Of course, our friends at the Canada Free Press had absolutely no problem hosting the video whatsoever. The video, produced by Naked Emperor News lays the whole program out pretty well, and we felt meshed very well with our own original reporting on the ties between the Obama regime and attacks on Sarah, her friends, and family. Thanks to Bob Parks, you can see the video “Ethicsgatehere. You can read a good recap on Obama’s Alaska Mafia © with plenty of links to older stories here.

Ok, now that we have established that McGinniss, like the rest of the thugs who hassle Sarah and her family, can dish it out but can’t take it, let’s examine what this loser was allowed, unquestioned by Soros plant Dave Weigel, to spew out.

When a source told Joe McGinniss that he could rent the house next to Sarah Palin’s Wasilla, Alaska, home, the author was sold.

A room at the Best Western, not far away, would have been prohibitively expensive. The landlord of this house, meanwhile, offered it to McGinniss for $1,500 per month after a friend of the author recommended him as a solid alternative to the other people asking about the property.

Now remember, this freak bid $60,000 to have dinner with Sarah, (which he claims below he really didn’t have) and stalked her cross country, a few months in a hotel is chicken feed. Plus, you can’t tell me there aren’t either extended stay hotels, or other rentals in Wasilla.

She was talking to this mutual friend of ours and said, ‘I’ve got to find someone we’re comfortable with,’ ” McGinniss said Friday evening from the deck of the house — a deck that became famous after Palin posted a photo of it on Facebook this week. ” ‘My biggest concern is the Palins’ privacy, especially the children.’ So this mutual friend said, ‘Well, you know, I think you’re in luck. Joe McGinniss is going to be coming back here, and you couldn’t find a better guy, just the right sort of person to move in and guarantee their privacy.’

Guarantee their privacy” who is this loon trying to kid! This is a guy has publically stalked Sarah for over a year. Why not just rent the house to Lee Harvey Oswald or Mark David Chapman.

I wonder who the “mutual friend” is? Since fellow pervert Jesse Griffin worships this guy, I imagine Devon, or one of the other thugs played a hand in this. They all hang together when McGinniss is in town looking for more lies to peddle.

What happened next, said McGinniss, came as a total surprise. He had planned to keep the news off the Internet and tell the Palins himself that he’d be their neighbor as he wrapped up his biography of the former governor.

McGinniss had written a Portfolio piece about her leadership, and a critical Daily Beast piece on her book tour for her memoir, “Going Rogue,” but he hoped to keep things civil and introduce himself anew to Palin and her husband, Todd.

‘I wanted to say, ‘I’m writing this book, but I hope we can just get along as good neighbors, and after that, you’ll never hear from me again,’” said McGinniss. “That’s basically what I told Todd on Monday when he came over. He didn’t really want to hear that.


“He took off on how my Portfolio piece was a bunch of lies, and a smear, and all this and all that, and he said, ‘You going to be putting the microphones in now, and the surveillance cameras?’ I said, ‘Listen, you don’t know how lucky you are that I’m renting this place because that’s exactly what’s not going to happen as long as I’m here. I won’t see you, you don’t see me, this will be fine.’ He talked for a few more minutes beyond that, and he got, I’d say, increasingly hostile. And then he left, and I was still out here on this deck, where I’m sitting right now, when they took that picture for Facebook.

He’s lucky I’m not Todd Palin, because I am not nearly the man Todd Palin is. If I was Todd, and this creepy stalker moved right next door, they’d still be trying to pull me off of him! This action by McGinnis is nothing less than an assault on the Palin family. Old Joe better thank whatever pagan idol he prays to that Todd is so strong of a man.

As for the Portfolio article, you can read it here and judge for yourself. Our readers know the truth about Sarah and her dealings with Big Oil, as well as AGIA, so it won’t be hard to take this one apart.

Sarah said this of McGinniss’ brand of “journalism“: “the bizarre anti-Palin administration oil development pieces that resulted in my Department of Natural Resources announcing that his work is the most twisted energy-related yellow journalism they’d ever encountered.”

This does not sound like she would be all that excited to have this jackass living within a thousand miles of her, let alone 15 feet, but Joe was “surprised” at this? Give me a break. This is proof of one or two things…possibly both…Joe is either an out and out liar, or so delusional that he shouldn’t be out in public. Again, could be both.

After that happened, McGinniss — who is hoping to finish his local research for the book by Labor Day — became the target of fury from Palin fans. After radio host Mark Levin gave out the author’s e-mail address, McGinniss got 5000 messages in four hours, eventually shutting down the account. Wasilla police and state troopers are keeping an watchful eye on the place, although McGinniss said no one had come to the house to threaten him on Friday. He simply didn’t anticipate the scale of Palin’s response.

Oh cry me a river Joe! You and your little Alaska blogger buddies have made Sarah’s life a living hell for almost two years now. You all have harassed her at every step, attacked her children in the most vile of ways, and you’re pissed that you got some e-mail?

Man up you loser!

Having read some of the comments on the various websites covering this assault on Sarah and her family, I’d say you better be glad e-mails is all you got. There ain’t no love for Joe McGinniss among normal human beings!

I would term this hysterical,” said McGinniss. “The mayor said to me, when I chatted with him in his office a couple of days ago, ‘You know, if Sarah had the brains that we like to think she has, Todd would have come back and said, do you know who’s living next door? This son of a bitch McGinniss who wrote that Portfolio piece. He’s writing a book about you. Sarah should have baked a plate of cookies, and come around the fence, and said hi, and laughed about this.’ I would have happily accepted a cookie, and then in my book I would have had a lovely scene about how gracious she had been.” McGinniss sighed. “She is, in many ways, a very gracious person.”

O-M-G! This is wrong on so many levels. Just creepy. First off, if one wants to see hysterical, one only has to look at Joe McGinniss. This guy is crying like a bitch. You don’t see Sarah crying, oh hell no, she’s being a productive member of society, and taking her frustration out on this poor SOB, whippin’ him like a rented mule. I’m quite sure we’ll have more to say on this later.

I find it odd to that Joe thinks Sarah would bake him cookies or something. I can’t figure if he’s that big of an ass, or if he is really that delusional. Knowing the extent of his stalking, again, it’s probably both.

McGinniss said he was offended by the way Palin described his presence next door. Contrary to what Palin said in her Facebook post, he can’t see into the windows of the home and he can’t hear their conversations. While Palin intimated that McGinniss could watch the family when it went swimming, he said that only the edge of their land near the lake was visible from his property. He was deeply offended by the implication, not thinly veiled in Palin’s note and subsequent interview with Glenn Beck, that he would be peering in on the children.

These little kids, I couldn’t care less about them,” said McGinniss. “I have my own kids and grandkids to care about. I don’t have any interest in Palin’s kids. I’m not going to write, oh, I saw Trig run across the lawn, and I saw someone else change his diaper. I haven’t been writing for 40 years to wind up on that level. I’m just very offended by this.”

Joe, you might not have waited 40 years to write at “that” level, but you sure have ended up at this level, which is as low as one can go. 

Refer back to our Alaska Mafia © link, and read more about Jessie Griffin, who idolizes Joe. Knowing what we know, we absolutely wouldn’t allow children, or even teens to be left in that guy’s presence unattended. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and Jessie is a big flamer (pun intended)

And if Joe is “offended,”…. well …. good, his presence in Alaska has offended millions of people. I guess we’re even.

Palin supporters have argued that McGinniss has made a nuisance of himself by previously delivering a copy of a previous book to the Palin home and by betting on a dinner with Palin in a charity auction. McGinniss said the first encounter was friendly, and the second was a “spoof.”

I just kept bidding because there was nothing else to do and it was fun,” he said. “She offered dinner with herself for a price? Well, if a journalist could pay the price, it would be responsible journalism to try and win that prize. I knew I couldn’t pay the price, so I wasn’t in there as a serious bidder.

A “spoof” huh? What kind of sick bastard bids on a dinner, where the money raised will benefit seriously wounded soldiers, as a “spoof“? Ride2Recovery, the charity, helps our brave heroes who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. Their mission is helping men and women, who have lost mobility, and getting them back out there living an active life. This is one of the most noble of causes, and this jerk-off is was playing around? It was “fun to do“?

You know, I went into this piece seriously not liking this reprobate, but now I despise him. This is absolutely the one of the most despicable human beings I have ever come across. This man sickens me. To think this guy would treat something so important as a joke, is beyond the pale.This man doesn’t deserve to be treated with even the minimum amount of dignity or respect.

McGinniss said he will limit his interviews on this topic, appearing on NBC’s The Today Show next week, before getting back to his own work. And he told the Post that he had been a responsible neighbor, shooing off a pair of Minnesota tourists who stepped onto his property to take photos of Palin’s home.

Of COURSE he’ll go on NBC, that’s Obama’s house organ. Jeffry Immelt, who runs General Electric, the parent company of NBC, is one of Obama’s close advisers. Joe can go on NBC and that bunch will lap his BS up just like our boy Dave Weigel has here.

As for “shooing off a pair of tourists” ….well Joe, I imagine those folks would have been welcomed, you’re not.

Look, this is a pain in the ass for them,” he said. “I understand that. If I were her, I’d be upset. I’d be annoyed. But I’d be an adult about it, and I would figure out, okay, how can we resolve this in a way that’s not going to make into something that everybody gets obsessive about? By being here I have learned things, and I’ve gotten an insight into her character, into her ability to incite hatred, that before I only knew about in the abstract.”

This is really the pièce de résistance! I mean this is comedy gold. It could be used at the competency hearing before they put this nimrod in the rubber room for good.

If I were her, I’d be upset. I’d be annoyed. But I’d be an adult about it” Yeah sure Joe, because you’ve proven you’re such an “adult” yourself. Go sell crazy somewhere else pal, we’re all full up here!

I love how this crazed stalker paints himself as the victim, then blames all of the strong reactions from Sarah, and her millions of followers, on Sarah herself. Could this guy be a bigger tool?

Let me tell you something Joe, Sarah is one of us. Sarah is America, and when you mess with America, America messes back. We don’t take kindly to degenerate stalkers, or Good Time Charlies who mess with our troops. You are the scum of the earth pal. The lowest of the low. You may impress that bunch of losers you hang out with when you go to Alaska, but you don’t impress anyone else.

If you think you got it bad now, keep messing with Sarah Palin. Keep messing with America. If you think it’s hot now, just keep it up.

And you Dave Weigel, shame on you for giving this degenerate a forum to spout his nonsense, and shame on the Washington Post for letting you get away with it.

Stalker, Joe McGinniss Interviewed by His Biggest Fan, Dave Weigel

By Stacy Drake

Dave Weigel is standing by his man, providing a forum for renowned “creepy stalker,” known liar, and suspected plagiarist, Joe McGinniss. Friday evening he posted a piece called “Joe McGinniss talks about why he moved in next to Sarah Palin” in the Washington Post. Weigel was an obvious choice for McGinniss to use as his ‘message man’ considering Dave has shown sympathy for Joe’s disturbing behavior. Weigel was also taken to task by many bloggers (I’d love to link examples but there’s just too many) for his indefensible, defense of McGinnis, and rightfully so.

Weigel starts the article:

When a source told Joe McGinniss that he could rent the house next to Sarah Palin’s Wasilla, Alaska, home, the author was sold.

A room at the Best Western, not far away, would have been prohibitively expensive. The landlord of this house, meanwhile, offered it to McGinniss for $1,500 per month after a friend of the author recommended him as a solid alternative to the other people asking about the property.

“She was talking to this mutual friend of ours and said, ‘I’ve got to find someone we’re comfortable with,’ ” McGinniss said Friday evening from the deck of the house — a deck that became famous after Palin posted a photo of it on Facebook this week. ” ‘My biggest concern is the Palins‘ privacy, especially the children.’ So this mutual friend said, ‘Well, you know, I think you’re in luck. Joe McGinniss is going to be coming back here, and you couldn’t find a better guy, just the right sort of person to move in and guarantee their privacy.'”

Wait a second… In the last post I wrote on this matter, I quoted Joe McGinniss Jr. claiming that the property owner sought out Joe McGinniss. According to him, the owner, Catherine Taylor did that because she knew he was writing an unfriendly book about Governor Palin and that she did this as some sort of retribution to the Palin’s over some financial dispute. Here, McGinniss Sr. contradicts his son’s comments and instead says that some shadowy third party initiated the rental agreement. I’ll stick with my first and perpetual instinct to never trust the words of a left-wing crackpot. Who set up the deal that placed this jerk next door to the object of his obsession, and his meal-ticket, is still up for debate.

Weigel’s piece then says:

What happened next, said McGinniss, came as a total surprise. He had planned to keep the news off the Internet and tell the Palins himself that he’d be their neighbor as he wrapped up his biography of the former governor.

McGinniss had written a Portfolio piece about her leadership, and a critical Daily Beast piece on her book tour for her memoir, “Going Rogue,” but he hoped to keep things civil and introduce himself anew to Palin and her husband, Todd.

Okay, first of all McGinniss is not writing a biography. He’s writing an attack book called “Sarah Palin’s Year of Living Dangerously.” The title honestly makes me laugh out loud… It’s that stupid. Secondly, the idiotic Portfolio piece was not about her “leadership.” That was drive-by, pseudo-journalism at it’s worst. Governor Palin said that article resulted in her “Department of Natural Resources announcing that his work is the most twisted energy-related yellow journalism they’d ever encountered.” Yeah Dave, that’s not an honest article about a former governor’s leadership, but then again, you’re not an honest journalist so what do I expect?

It continues:

“‘I wanted to say, ‘I’m writing this book, but I hope we can just get along as good neighbors, and after that, you’ll never hear from me again,'” said McGinniss. “That’s basically what I told Todd on Monday when he came over. He didn’t really want to hear that.

“He took off on how my Portfolio piece was a bunch of lies, and a smear, and all this and all that, and he said, ‘You going to be putting the microphones in now, and the surveillance cameras?’ I said, ‘Listen, you don’t know how lucky you are that I’m renting this place because that’s exactly what’s not going to happen as long as I’m here. I won’t see you, you don’t see me, this will be fine.’ He talked for a few more minutes beyond that, and he got, I’d say, increasingly hostile. And then he left, and I was still out here on this deck, where I’m sitting right now, when they took that picture for Facebook.”

So Todd got “increasingly hostile” did he? You don’t say… Perhaps it was the Portfolio hit-piece that was Todd’s first clue that Joe was there for no good reason. It also could have been the fact that McGinniss told a reporter “”I’m not intending to write a salacious book about Sarah Palin’s sex life. But if it’s true, I’ll find out.” Maybe that, plus Joe’s location is what upset Todd Palin.

I guess this piece of human trash (Joe) considers getting visibly angry (I’m sure Todd wasn’t smiling at the guy) as “hostile.” Well good for Todd. I agree with those who have said Todd deserves a medal for ‘courageous restraint.’ Where I come from, right or wrong, your face would get bloodied for such antagonistic behavior. Joe McGinniss, consider yourself lucky for ‘picking a fight’ with such good, civilized people.

He goes on:

After that happened, McGinniss — who is hoping to finish his local research for the book by Labor Day — became the target of fury from Palin fans. After radio host Mark Levin gave out the author’s e-mail address, McGinniss got 5000 messages in four hours, eventually shutting down the account. Wasilla police and state troopers are keeping an watchful eye on the place, although McGinniss said no one had come to the house to threaten him on Friday. He simply didn’t anticipate the scale of Palin’s response.

“I would term this hysterical,” said McGinniss. “The mayor said to me, when I chatted with him in his office a couple of days ago, ‘You know, if Sarah had the brains that we like to think she has, Todd would have come back and said, do you know who’s living next door? This son of a bitch McGinniss who wrote that Portfolio piece. He’s writing a book about you. Sarah should have baked a plate of cookies, and come around the fence, and said hi, and laughed about this.’ I would have happily accepted a cookie, and then in my book I would have had a lovely scene about how gracious she had been.” McGinniss sighed. “She is, in many ways, a very gracious person.”

I don’t think the mayor really said that but if he did, vote for the other candidate next time, Wasilla! Perhaps the good folks at the Frontiersman should ask the mayor next week if he said that and if he did, what the hell was he thinking?

Regardless, Joe thinks a cookie from Sarah Palin would have been an appropriate response to his invasion. He’s toying with readers of the Washington Post in more ways than one here. This man is one of those guys who thinks he’s smarter than he actually is, therefore he plays mind games with those around him. He’s trying to say ‘hey look, I’m reasonable, just trying to get my scoop. I was going to be nice to her but her and that husband of hers are just so darn mean, so now I have to write a bunch mean things about her, you see.’

By the way, YES Joe, Sarah Palin is indeed a very gracious person. That’s the first time I’ve seen the truth associated with his words, but when he’s right, he’s right. I have read many accounts from people who know her and who have met her, that have stated as much.

Weigel’s piece continues (emphasis mine):

While Palin intimated that McGinniss could watch the family when it went swimming, he said that only the edge of their land near the lake was visible from his property. He was deeply offended by the implication, not thinly veiled in Palin’s note and subsequent interview with Glenn Beck, that he would be peering in on the children.

“These little kids, I couldn’t care less about them,” said McGinniss. “I have my own kids and grandkids to care about. I don’t have any interest in Palin’s kids. I’m not going to write, oh, I saw Trig run across the lawn, and I saw someone else change his diaper. I haven’t been writing for 40 years to wind up on that level. I’m just very offended by this.”

I highlighted the first part of that statement because I thought it was very telling. Mark that as the second time I have seen the truth come from McGinniss. He most definitely doesn’t care about Sarah Palin’s children. I imagine the kids aren’t going to get to play outside much this summer as he has sort of pushed everybody away from certain areas of their own property. He unapologetically has taken certain freedoms away from these children. It’s very obvious to the world that Joe McGinniss could care less about the Palin kids.

Mr. McGinniss should understand as a parent that whenever there is a threat around, a parent’s instincts are to protect their young. Joe McGinniss‘ past behavior of hit-pieces, stalking, and now this invasion are threatening. It is perfectly acceptable and understandable for Sarah Palin’s first concern be the safety and privacy of her children. For McGinniss to be “offended” by the notion that he would write at that level is laughable. Consider the company Mr. McGinniss keeps while he is in Alaska. It seems Joe likes to hang around the Alaskan lefty goon squad when he’s not stalking his subject or her family. See Rich Crowther’s piece for further details on that.

More from Weigel:

Palin supporters have argued that McGinniss has made a nuisance of himself by previously delivering a copy of a previous book to the Palin home and by betting on a dinner with Palin in a charity auction. McGinniss said the first encounter was friendly, and the second was a “spoof.”

“I just kept bidding because there was nothing else to do and it was fun,” he said. “She offered dinner with herself for a price? Well, if a journalist could pay the price, it would be responsible journalism to try and win that prize. I knew I couldn’t pay the price, so I wasn’t in there as a serious bidder.”

This is what this man considers “responsible journalism.” No wonder I’m sitting here writing about this clown, again! This is another example of mental pretzels being woven by McGinniss trying to cover his own ass for his past behavior. He says “I wasn’t in there as a serious bidder,” but he bid $68,000! He’s just trying to change the subject again and distort the meaning of what he was originally doing.

He said “She offered dinner with herself for a price?” Way to cheapen an auction for a wounded warrior fund, Mr. McGinniss. Then again, I wouldn’t expect someone from his background to appreciate a military charity. Instead he makes a underhanded, snarky, sexist comment insinuating Governor Palin was offering herself “for a price.” This guy is a scumbag through and through.

Weigel ends it:

McGinniss said he will limit his interviews on this topic, appearing on NBC’s The Today Show next week, before getting back to his own work. And he told the Post that he had been a responsible neighbor, shooing off a pair of Minnesota tourists who stepped onto his property to take photos of Palin’s home.

“Look, this is a pain in the ass for them,” he said. “I understand that. If I were her, I’d be upset. I’d be annoyed. But I’d be an adult about it, and I would figure out, okay, how can we resolve this in a way that’s not going to make into something that everybody gets obsessive about? By being here I have learned things, and I’ve gotten an insight into her character, into her ability to incite hatred, that before I only knew about in the abstract.”

There’s that ‘inciting hatred’ meme again like we heard from Junior McGinniss the other day. Lefty, mud-slinging apples must not fall to far from the tree.

Mr. McGinniss has no idea who the Palin’s are. He is testing their ability to put up with an enormous amount of crap from a deranged old man with nothing better to do than to harass a family that just so happens to have a mother that doesn’t agree with him politically. He’s trying to see if he can push their buttons enough to provoke a reaction he can write about in his book and generate more publicity for it’s release. He is going to fail and he is going to fail miserably. The Palin’s will not be provoked to do anything and he is simply going to have to rely on his old method of lying.

Joe McGinniss… Go to Hell and take Dave Weigel with you.

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

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.

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.

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

De-licious!

Now for some updates on McGinniss:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bluegrass Pundit adds this little tidbit to the mix:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[…]

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

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

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

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

You can read more from Doug here.

BTW, Greta has photos of the fence here.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Erickson writes:

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

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

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

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

Dr. Clouthier writes:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sarah Palin’s Neighbor Did What Now?

By Stacy Drake

Ben Smith at Politico has posted another story related to now famous stalker, Joe McGinniss titled “Palin neighbor sought author as tenant.” It says:

Sarah Palin’s next-door neighbor sought out author Joe McGinniss as a tenant, McGinniss’s son said.

“No one is stalking anyone,” Joe McGinniss, Jr., a novelist whose father is the non-fiction writer, wrote in response to an email from a Palin supporter who confused his email address and his father’s. (He shared the email with me.) “A woman was renting her house and sought out the author because the Palins had crossed her (owed her money for renovations she had done at their request and never paid her for). So she knew McGinniss was writing the book and found him and offered him the house.”

The neighbor “turned down more lucrative offers from the National Enquirer who wanted the house so they could ‘stalk’ and take pictures, etc… She said no,” he wrote.

McGinniss, Jr. wrote that Palin is “inspiring a lot of hate in people, appealing to so many of people’s worst instincts. Sad and scary.” And he defended his father’s decision to rent the house:

[I]f you were writing a biography of Tiger Woods and had the chance to move in with him, or his pool house, or rent next door or down the street from him — it would be journalistic malpractice not to. As a writer, you go where the story is, get as close as you can to it. People who write about politics, campaigns, they travel with the candidates, stay in the same motels, ride the bus, eat breakfast, hang out any and everywhere they can to get access. It’s pretty basic. We want to read the work of someone who is as close to their subject as possible. That’s called reporting. And when it’s for a book about someone, all the more important to be close….

He’s not stalking or peeping or peering or meddling. He’s simply fulfilling his obligations to his publisher and his readers and himself — to get as close to the subject of his book as possible. You’ll never see tabloid photos or depictions of backyard activities. He’s a professional writer with great integrity and an amazing sense of fairness.

The Tennessee woman to whom he responded, whom McGinniss, Jr. said was “the most rational-sounding” one, called the journalist a “leech” and wrote that, if a reporter moved in next to her, ” I can only imagine how outraged and invaded I would feel.”

McGinniss, Jr. added, “Sarah Palin’s middle-school style reaction to an author renting next door is quite something. But maybe my father’s grandchildren, when they fly up to visit, can make some new friends. They’d probably have a lot of fun together actually.”

The fact that he said Governor Palin is “inspiring a lot of hate in people” should be a clear indicator what a far-left crackpot Joe McGinniss Jr. (and most likely Senior as well) is, but that’s besides the point for now.

At first glace it appears as though Junior is covering for his crazed father’s actions by making up excuses and shifting the blame to the owner of the property. While trying to rescue his father’s reputation may be the case, something may be up with the owner as well.

In two separate interviews given this week, Governor Palin has stated that they tried to contact the owner to purchase the property or rent it out again but the owner never returned their calls.

Junior McGinniss implies that the Palin’s owed this woman money and that was what this owner, a lady by the name of Catherine E. Taylor was seeking some sort of revenge for. That doesn’t add up at all. If the Palin’s “owed” her money, why would she NOT respond to them when they tried to contact her?

Sarah Palin is no deadbeat and she certainly can afford to pay her bills. Just pick up any “mainstream” publication from about two months ago for full disclosure on every dime she has made within the last year. Sarah Palin has a public image to maintain and she would not skip out on paying bills risking a possible future political career, her livelihood, or the reputation of the many candidates her PAC works so hard to support. This explanation makes no sense.

If there was any motive at all for Taylor to ‘seek revenge’ on her neighbors, this proves she sought out a tenant with a history of unsavory behavior in regards to Governor Palin. I think Whitney summed up Joe McGinniss’ shady history well in her piece titled “The Palins Can See a McCreep from their House!” She wrote:

Joe McGinniss is an author who writes true crime and non-fiction novels. Most well known is his book about Richard Nixon’s 1968 presidential campaign that he wrote as a 26 year old. He has also written a book about a year traveling through Alaska published in 1980 and is currently writing an anti-Palin book due out next year. He has written several Palin hit pieces over the past year and a half. He wrote a piece for the no longer existent Conde Nast’s Portfolio. This piece is full of quotes from noted Palin detractors, and McGinniss called her Alaska’s Eva Peron. The false claims made in this piece regarding McGinniss’s assertions have been debunked here. McGinniss also made an attempt to win an auction for dinner with Governor Palin, the proceeds going to Ride2Recovery effort for combat victims (Cathy Maples won the auction). He bid on this auction event because he ” would have enjoyed the opportunity for a frank exchange of views with Gov. Palin.”

McGinniss has stopped by the Palin’s home before in his “research” for his book prior to his move to the Palin’s neighborhood, stopping by the Palin’s home once last fall to drop off a copy of his book, Going to Extremes. A story published last November by the New York Daily News quoted McGinniss as saying, ” I’m not intending to write a salacious book about Sarah Palin’s sex life. But if it’s true, I’ll find out” (emphasis mine). McGinniss also spent significant time analyzing every move of Governor Palin’s book tour over the winter, even stopping by at one of the book tour stops in Florida

These latest comments from Joe McGinniss Jr. are cause for concern. Many people have many questions and I’m really not trusting this left-wing crackpot to give the public any straight answers. No matter who sought who, the fact of the matter remains. Joe McGinniss is a morally depraved, intrusive individual that has no business taking up residence next to the Palin family. I don’t care if he calls himself a journalist or not. The damage to his reputation is done and this is merely an attempt by his camp to paint Sarah Palin as the ‘bad guy’ when we already know that she and her family have been victimized in this case.

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

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.

Ruth Marcus’ Distorted Commentary on Sarah Palin

By Stacy Drake

Today is just another day, which means another day for the media to lie, spin, and distort anything Sarah Palin does or says. Our shinning example for the day would be by Washington Post Columnist, Ruth Marcus in an article she wrote titled “Sarah Palin’s fact-free commentary on Paul and BP.”

Ruth claims that an interview Governor Palin gave to Chris Wallace on FOX last Sunday “pushed” her “over the edge.” I certainly hope she can recover from that… Marcus had a good cranky rant about Rand Paul, which I’m not going to get in to here. Rachel Maddow’s “gotcha’ moment with Dr. Paul has been discussed ad nauseum by others and I wholly agree with Governor Palin that one shouldn’t have theoretical discussions with “TV character’s” that want to harm them, politically.

Ruth Marcus then went on to attack Governor Palin for mentioning the obvious. That being the fact that IF President Obama were a Republican, the Lamestream media would most likely have a different narrative playing on the pages of their publications and on their news programs in regards to the administrations response to the Gulf oil leak. At the very least, they would have mentioned the fact that Obama received the largest sum of campaign cash from the oil company responsible for the leak, British Petroleum, in the last twenty years. Marcus said:

Then there was Palin’s best-defense-is-an-untrue-offense response to questions about the oil spill in the Gulf. The cheerleader for “drill, baby, drill” suggested that President Obama was in the pocket of Big Oil:

She then attempts to quote Governor Palin:

“The oil companies who have so supported President Obama in his campaign and are supportive of him now — I don’t know why the question isn’t asked by the mainstream media and by others if there’s any connection with the contributions made to President Obama and his administration and the support by the oil companies to the administration. If there’s any connection there to President Obama taking so doggone long to get in there, to dive in there, and grasp the complexity and the potential tragedy that we are seeing here in the Gulf of Mexico.”

Marcus quite obviously left some keys words out of the quote. What Governor Palin actually said in full context:

I think that there is perhaps a hesitancy to — I don’t really know how to put this, Chris, except to say that the oil companies who have so supported President Obama in his campaign and are supportive of him now — I don’t know why the question isn’t asked by the mainstream media and by others if there’s any connection with the contributions made to President Obama and his administration and the support by the oil companies to the administration.

If there’s any connection there to President Obama taking so doggone long to get in there, to dive in there, and grasp the complexity and the potential tragedy that we are seeing here in the Gulf of Mexico — now, if this was President Bush or if this were a Republican in office who hadn’t received as much support even as President Obama has from B.P. and other oil companies, you know the mainstream media would be all over his case in terms of asking questions why the administration didn’t get in there, didn’t get in there and make sure that the regulatory agencies were doing what they were doing with the oversight to make sure that things like this don’t happen.

I take it Ruth Marcus didn’t bother to do much research before writing this article because Governor Palin reinforced this point that her criticism was actually directed at the media more so than Obama when she wrote the following on her Facebook page:

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

I had no trouble interrupting what Governor Palin said at the time. I knew she was criticizing the media for taking it’s current day role as administration lapdog, instead of an objective press. Perhaps Ruth has journalist blinders on that inhibited her view of the point that was being made. I really don’t think that is the case however. The truth is that Governor Palin was right and I think Ruth Marcus knows it.

I sat in a news room through the entire Bush presidency. I witnessed the media try to frame almost everything that man did during his term as some sort of ‘payoff’ to his “oil buddies.” From the wars we were in, to Hurricane Katrina, to the nation’s energy policies… The media had a ‘Bush is a corrupt oil man‘ meme going and they ran with it for eight long years. The meme is no longer in play during an Obama administration.

Did Ruth Marcus just miss the point, or did she try to distort the premise of the argument? I think the answer to that question is pretty clear.

Marcus self-righteously declares in the article that”Facts are stubborn things.” Indeed they are and I couldn’t agree more, Ruth! Fortunately for the rest of society, we have access to them outside of the dinosaur press.

Let Me Get This Right WaPo’s Dave Weigel Defends Sarah Palin’s Dangerous, Deranged Stalker, Then Hammers Palin? Really?

You know, I really have better things to do than deal with this nimrod, but this guy, Dave Weigel over at the Washington Post makes me sick. The fact that he bills himself as a “Conservative Republican Insider” makes me want to both laugh, and throw things at the same time.

No doubt, by now you know Sarah Palin has a stalker, an unhinged, and increasingly believed dangerous, deranged stalker: Joe McGinniss. Sarah, herself, wrote about the fact this Grade A whack job has rented the home next door for the summer. Stacy Drake wrote about Sarah’s note, and did some quick background. You can read her report here.

McGinniss is a nasty fellow on a good day, and when he’s not plagiarizing other people’s work, he writes hit pieces on Sarah Palin. Sarah writes this about Joe’s brand of “journalism.

Knowing of his many other scathing pieces of “journalism” (including the bizarre anti-Palin administration oil development pieces that resulted in my Department of Natural Resources announcing that his work is the most twisted energy-related yellow journalism they’d ever encountered), we’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning.

I have yet to read anything McGinniss has written that includes fact one on any given subject. The guy has a vivid imagination though, most likely from all of those years of writing violent “true crime” novels, like Fatal Vision. He also penned a book about Nixon, as well.

Just how creepy is this fellow? THIS Creepy:

I haven’t been able to reach McGinniss, but did send an errant email to his son, the novelist Joe McGinniss Jr., who replied, “Sadly, she’s right. We tried our best to intervene, but alas, the heart wants what it wants. We can only pray for him now. He’s convinced that Todd will step aside and when the time is right, he’ll be there, right next door, to pick up the pieces.

~ Ben Smith …. Politico

Kinda makes your skin crawl, doesn’t it.

We were reminded by a reader that McGinnis also bid $60,000 in the Ride2Recovery eBay auction to benefit wounded troops. Sarah donated a private dinner with her and Todd to Ride2Recovery, with the winning bidder getting some quality time with the Palins.

We knew about Joe’s attempt at the time, but blew it off as a stunt, something one of Obama’s little hate bloggers in Alaska would pull. But putting this into context with what Joe Jr. told Ben Smith, this whole thing just went off the freak-me-out-o-meter scale!

Sarah talks about her concern for her children’s safety. That’s just like a mother. I’m more concerned about her safety, and frankly Todd’s. Over the years we’ve seen more than a few obsessed nutbag stalkers, and this sort of thing never ends well. Never.

That’s why when I read this crap by the Washington Post’sConservative Republican Insider,” Dave Weigel, I wanted to puke. What a darling this loser must be in real life.

This crapweasel goes for maximum douchebaggery right off the bat:

Sarah Palin’s strange, unprofessional and paranoid grudge

Sarah Palin took to her Facebook account today to inform her readers that Joe McGinniss, an award-winning reporter and author, had rented the house next door.

I saw Ben Smith flag this earlier today but did not really appreciate how strange and, frankly, immature Palin’s post was until I read it.

Palin informs her readers that McGinniss is “overlooking my children’s play area” and “overlooking Piper’s bedroom.” Alternately sounding angry and mocking, she refers to “the family’s swimming hole,” which at first reference sounds like she’s accusing McGinniss of checking out the Palins in their bathing suits, until you realize the family’s “swimming hole” is Lake Lucille. And she posts a photo of the space McGinniss is renting, captioning it, “Can I call you Joe?

Can somebody explain to me how this isn’t a despicable thing for Palin to do? She describes McGinniss as the author of “the bizarre anti-Palin administration oil development pieces that resulted in my Department of Natural Resources announcing that his work is the most twisted energy-related yellow journalism they’d ever encountered.

Unprofessional,” …. “paranoid, ” …. “immature” …. “despicable” …. Really Dave? Really? How’s about we do some digging and find out where you live pal. You got a family? Maybe your mate is a hottie. Maybe we should fantasize about you taking a hike, and us stepping in and “takin’ care of business” with the “little lady“?

Oh who the hell are we kidding here?!? This loser probably lives in some rundown Washington D.C. tenement with little furniture and a half dozen cats. Poor cats!

You can read the rest of this clown …. I mean …. Mr. “Conservative Republican Insider’s” mind numbing drivel here.

Meanwhile, there are still real men in the world, men who believe in virtue. Men who actually think when a crazy man is stalking someone you care about, you don’t sit back and take it. Men who don’t think it’s “unprofessional” to call someone out when they have crossed way over the line. In this case, one of these men would be Glenn Beck.

Glenn told his radio listeners Tuesday that Sarah had e-mailed him about this situation. Being kindred spirits, I know he could relate. The hate on the left knows no bounds, as Beck knows all to well. He’s had to hire all kinds of security and take other drastic measures.

Anyhow, here’s Glenn discussing the situation:

We’ll post Glenn’s interview with Sarah as soon as it’s available.

Not that I would ever condone it’s use, but some advice to Joe McGinniss: Sarah has one of these, and a whole lot more to go with them. And just like ZZ Top sang in “Legs” she sure knows how to use ‘em!

I would recommend Sarah pick up one or two of these things.

Past that, if you are as freaked out by Joe McGinniss as I am, here are a couple of e-mail addresses you can contact Random House at. Be respectful, as we wouldn’t want to upset David Weigel’s tender sensibilities. After all, Dave is a “Conservative Republican Insider,” ya know.

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

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

~ Ken Salazar Secretary of the Interior for the Obama Regime

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

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

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

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

Big Oil: Learning from Alaska’s Experience

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

- Sarah Palin

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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