A little housekeeping from the weekend. There was a straw poll taken at the Western Conservative Summit this past weekend in Denver. Out of all possible candidates offered for consideration, Ben Carson, Senator Ted Cruz , and Governor Sarah Palin topped the list, with Carson in the top spot.

From the Denver Post:

Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin were the top picks of 666 voters in the Western Conservative Summit straw poll for president in 2016.

All three were speakers at the three-day event that concluded Sunday at Denver’s Hyatt Regency hotel. Carson, a columnist and retired neurosurgeon, received 22 percent of the vote, Cruz had 13 percent and Palin 12 percent.

The ballot included two dozen Republicans. The rest of the top 10, in order of finish, were Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Sen. Rick Santorum, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Rand Paul, former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey, former Rep. Allen West and Rep. Paul Ryan.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were among others on the ballot.

Votes were accepted in person, via text and online. The fifth annual event drew a crowd of 3,300, said John Andrews, director of the Centennial Institute, the conservative think tank at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood.

Gary P Jackson:

Chris McDaniel is currently preparing to challenge the June 24th results of the Mississippi run-off election against racist Thad Cochran. He has, I feel more than enough evidence to be successful, but here is an interesting alternative, should the courts do the unimaginable:

Governor Sarah Palin: Obama Knew of Border “Crisis” Prior to Reelection; Lied About That, Too!

Invasion Cartoon Obama Sez

By Gary P Jackson

Governor Palin’s latest Facebook note once again rips our Liar-in-Chief:

Obama Knew of Border “Crisis” Prior to Reelection; Lied About That, Too!

Obama golf course shhh

The Washington Post has a bombshell article out about how “top officials at the White House and the State Department had repeatedly been warned of the potential for…

Here’s the article Governor Palin references: [emphasis mine]

Nearly a year before President Obama declared a humanitarian crisis on the border, a team of experts arrived at the Fort Brown patrol station in Brownsville, Tex., and discovered a makeshift transportation depot for a deluge of foreign children.

Thirty Border Patrol agents were assigned in August 2013 to drive the children to off-site showers, wash their clothes and make them sandwiches. As soon as those children were placed in temporary shelters, more arrived. An average of 66 were apprehended each day on the border and more than 24,000 cycled through Texas patrol stations in 2013. In a 41-page report to the Department of Homeland Security, the team from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) raised alarms about the federal government’s capacity to manage a situation that was expected to grow worse.

The researchers’ observations were among the warning signs conveyed to the Obama administration over the past two years as a surge of Central American minors has crossed into south Texas illegally. More than 57,000 have entered the United States this year, swamping federal resources and catching the government unprepared.

The administration did too little to heed those warnings, according to interviews with former government officials, outside experts and immigrant advocates, leading to an inadequate response that contributed to this summer’s escalating crisis.

Federal officials viewed the situation as a “local problem,” said Victor Manjarrez Jr., a former Border Patrol station chief who led the UTEP study. The research, conducted last year, was funded by the Department of Homeland Security and published in March. A broader crisis was “not on anyone’s radar,” Manjarrez added, even though it was pretty clear this number of kids was going to be the new baseline.

Cecilia Muñoz, Obama’s domestic policy adviser, said the administration and key agencies had made adjustments over time to deal with the influx of children but then responded with urgency once federal officials realized in May that the numbers would far exceed internal projections of 60,000 minors crossing the border in 2014.

Revised Border Patrol estimates now suggest the number could reach 90,000 by the end of September.

Read much more of this shocking report here. The Post goes into great detail laying out dates and times, as well as naming names.

This is outrageous, but not totally surprising. As I wrote in June, while making the case against Speaker Boehner’s idiotic lawsuit, as well as the case FOR impeachment: In January, the Obama regime was advertising for “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children.“:

[emphasis mine]

Classification Code: V- Transportation/Travel/Relocation

NAICS code: 561612

Primary POC: Rachel Ali, Contract Specialist/ Rachel.Ali@ice.dhs.gov

Secondary POC: Tony Ross, Contracting Officer/ Tony.Ross@ice.dhs.gov

A. Introduction

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has a continuing and mission critical responsibility for accepting custody of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) from U.S. Border Patrol and other Federal agencies and transporting these juveniles to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters located throughout the continental United States.

Tying all of this incontrovertible evidence together makes the case for impeachment, well unimpeachable! Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution demands the President secure the border and protect against foreign invasion. We know that not only did Obama fail to secure the border, but actively promoted the invasion of America by foreign nationals. That’s treason, dear readers.

It’s time to contact your representatives in Washington, and demand action. It’s time to demand this lawless president be removed from office before any more damage to society is done.

Watch CNN’s Wolf Blitzer’s Despicable Attack On Israel for Simply Defending It’s People

Iron Domes

By Gary P Jackson

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer continues the network’s history of hate and stupidity as he interviews Israeli Minister Naftali Bennett. Here Bennett talks about the situation Israel finds herself in, and how the nation is defending against terrorism. Blitzer is in attack mode throughout the interview, even as Bennett explains how the Hamas animals use women and children as human shields, actually wanting a huge death toll, for propaganda purposes.

This is disgusting, but not surprising from the bunch at CNN. Blitzer isn’t the only one at the failing network that was spewing hate towards Israel. As Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston reports:

Reporting from Gaza, CNN’s Diana Magnay had a busy morning watching the mounting military action and interviewing onlookers. However, she also had time to jump on Twitter to call Israelis “scum” – purely as a “reporter,” of course.

During her on-air report, Magnay pointed out the trail of rockets that could be seen leaving Israeli positions to take out Hamas. “I think you can probably see there are lots of Israelis gathered around who are cheering when they see these kinds of Israeli strikes,” she noted. It was a scene that was “macabre,” Magnay insisted.

Only minutes after she left the air she jumped to Twitter, revealing that she had a few more things to say about what she witnessed that morning.

Magnay deleted her tweet within minutes of posting. It’s sickening to see this tweet got 47 “favorites before it was disappeared. Lots of evil in this world.

CNN Scum Diana Magnay

One of the many faces of hate at CNN:

diana-magnay-angry--screencap

Let’s not forget that CNN was more interested in maintaining a bureau in Baghdad, than reporting on the atrocities being carried out by Saddam Hussein, going so far as to cover up some of the worst.

Oh, and there was this tweet from Octavia Nasr in 2010 mourning the death of Hezbollah terrorist animal Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah:

THIS dear readers, is CNN.

Karl Rove Lied! His PAC DID Fund Racist Cochran Ads in Mississippi

Rove-papers-smiling

By Gary P Jackson

Karl Rove’s group, American Crossroads claimed it wouldn’t get involved in the June 24 run-off election between Chris McDaniel and Thad Cochran. Crossroads spokesman Paul Lindsay told the Washington Post:

Other than Alaska, we have completed our work on Senate primaries this cycle and are now focused on general elections. With the Chamber, the NRSC, and a local super PAC already backing Cochran, this is not our fight

However, Jeffrey Lord at the American Spectator tells a different story:

Just out is the quarterly FEC filing from Mississippi Conservatives. And what does it show?

According to the FEC, on June 20 — that would be four days before the June 24 runoff — the controversial Cochran-supporting group Mississippi Conservatives received a $50,000 donation from… American Crossroads.

Something, as they say, seems amiss.

Amiss indeed!

Florida Jayhawk posted the FEC filing showing that American Crossroads gave $50,000 to fund Cochran’s racist attacks on Chris McDaniel:

You’ll note Crossroads has given $210,000 in total, so far.

The lies, the fraud, and the corruption surrounding the Mississippi election keep getting bigger and bigger. The entire Republican Party should be ashamed of itself. Karl Rove and his group are despicable people for backing a racist piece of human debris like Cochran, but are even worse for lying about it.

I hope all of us are learning our lessons about the Republican Party, and the so-called “leaders” of the party. These are NOT good people. These are NOT honest people.

As a Conservative it’s frustrating to know that not only must we defeat the radical left, but we must also defeat what we once considered our own party!

Sarah Palin: Slaying Salmon

By Sarah Palin

Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here’s Piper helping slay salmon to market!

Piper Slaying Salmon

A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!

Holding Fish

It’s always wonderful reconnecting with our roots in Bristol Bay. We are very blessed to have five generations of family learning, living, loving together here in Alaska. Todd’s grandmother, a beautiful Yupik Eskimo elder who still speaks Yupik, masters the skillful artistry of the Native culture, crafting intricately woven grass baskets and works using wood, fur, skins, plants, porcupine needles and anything else traditionally gathered. Our matriarch cooks traditional subsistence fare that she’s helped harvest for nearly all her 94 years up North.

5 Generations of Palins

The stories this humble pioneer has lived illustrate what a genuine conservationist is: respecting God-given resources for man’s responsible use; honoring the Creator of it all and protecting the environment so our hunting, fishing, mining for minerals, drilling for energy, viewing our wildlife… all can be enjoyed and responsibly exploited for every generation to come. Native elders are so often the ones to learn “environmentalism” from; they’ve lived off the land and carved their lives out of the wilderness and on the waters. They honor the purpose of natural resources. Any day of the week I’d trust Lena’s commitment to protecting opportunities to develop the earth’s energy and food supplies over any New York City “Occupying” yuppie who radically screeches his misguided doctrine from within his concrete jungle. (It’s because a Bristol Bay wild salmon stew and blueberry pie harvested ourselves nourishes the commonsense gene so much more than the foo-foo chi-chi $8.00 frothy latte he sips while skipping in and out of stale air conditioned boxes… in my opinion!)

Lena’s a true American role model, we’re so thankful to have our kind, wise, gorgeous “G.G.” in our lives. May Lena’s passionate love of God, family and country continue to influence Alaskans. She makes the world a better place.

Mooses

I snapped the moose photo last night (followed by a fun video I shot; maybe I’ll post it later). It was taken at 11pm, but still light in the Land of the Midnight Sun, of course. Trig got out of bed to watch out the living room for Todd to land his float plane in the front yard (i.e. the lake!) returning from Bristol Bay. And then three NEW FRIENDS sauntered by to meet Trig! The ungulates proceeded to chomp down dinner in my garden. Moose = my convenient excuse as to why my garden is no Pepperidge Farm!

Sarah Palin’s Pick to Co-Host “The View”? Tammy Bruce

Tammy Bruce

***Updated below***

By Gary P Jackson

Well here’s something kind of cool to start the day off. As you know, recently Sarah Palin, when asked …. after the mass firings at The View …. commented that the show could use a Conservative voice. Governor Palin told the Hollywood ReporterI hear everyone recently got canned from The View so maybe a show like that needs a punch of reality and a voice of reason from America’s heartland to knock some humble sense into their scripts. You know, someone willing to go rogue..” This has led to wild speculation that she would be interested in a slot on the show. Everyone with a byline seems to be talking about it.

Well, Nikki Finke writes that Governor Palin is indeed involved in the process. Reports are that Governor Palin has recommended Tammy Bruce for the slot. From Finke’s website:

I don’t think Sarah Palin is being considered to be a panelist on the show. I think she’s working behind the scenes to help them cast the conservative,” an insider tells me. “Tammy and Palin are close friends, and I think they are hot on Tammy because of Palin. They want the show to be politically combative, and Tammy would certainly be the anti-Rosie in every possible way.”

We LOVE Tammy, a lot! She’s a reformed liberal and was the president of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Organization for Women [NOW] for 7 years, and served on the board of directors for 2 years. She’s an actual feminist, like Governor Palin, not one of the phonies. Tammy understands how the liberal mind works, and is an outspoken voice against the evils of that ideology. She can hold her own in any setting, and would indeed be the “Anti-Rosie” in every way! She is intelligent, attractive, and unafraid! A class act. She is able to bring logic and reason to an argument with a liberal.

Tammy has a large following of her own. Her “Tammy Army” is quite active in Conservative politics. Her website, Live Wire is a daily “must read.” Having Tammy as part of the cast would, of course, help boost ratings for a show that has been on it’s last breaths, in it’s current form.

Besides her website and talk show, Tammy is a Fox News and PJTV contributor, as well as a columnist for the Washington Times.

I had a very brief exchange of messages with Tammy on Tuesday. She neither confirmed nor denied the report, but I felt she was excited. Personally, I can’t think of a better person to join the show. Tammy would represent Conservatives very well.

Let’s all send some positive thoughts her way!

If you don’t already, follow Tammy on Twitter @HeyTammyBruce

***Update***

Got a message from Tammy Bruce after this was published. She confirms she is in talks with the people at The View though she can’t confirm if Governor Palin was involved in the process. We’re thinking good thoughts, as we think this would be a very watchable show with her on it.

I’ve edited the headline [added a question mark] to reflect the fact that Tammy can’t confirm reports Sarah Palin is involved in the decision, as reported by Nikki Finke.

Immigration… From an Immigrants Perspective

Gary P Jackson:

A MUST read from Marion Algier [Ask Marion]

Originally posted on askmarion:

America has been on the edge for a long time and she is now teetering as far forward over the edge as a country possibly can before it falls over the cliff and is no longer recognizable.

The question is… which America do you want to live in:

The one above or the one below… (photos taken approximately the dame day) and it has nothing to do with race, color or religion, at least not to the average Americans I know. It has to do with the law, sovereignty and becoming part of a melting pot and all that goes with it.

Back From Alaska’s Bristol Bay Governor Sarah Palin Makes Powerful Endorsements in Georgia Primaries

By Gary P Jackson

Governor Sarah Palin has some new endorsements for next Tuesday’s election in Georgia:

Just back from a beautiful weekend in Alaska’s Bristol Bay – nothing like some clean fresh air to reinvigorate us for the fight ahead this fall. Today, we’re announcing support for two solid constitutional conservatives from the great state of Georgia. Having many friends in Georgia, we know like us your summers are filled with fishing, family, and fresh air without much room for politics. However, with so much at risk in this year’s elections, please take time to check out these great conservatives and encourage your family, friends, camping buddies, neighbors, etc. to get out and vote for them next Tuesday, July 22nd.

Dr Bob Johnson

DR. BOB JOHNSON FOR U.S. CONGRESS (GA-1)

Dr. Bob Johnson is one doctor we need in the House! Americans are tired of career politicians who make empty promises during campaigns, only to get to Washington to advance their own careers. Dr. Bob is in this campaign with a servant’s heart. As a 26-year Army veteran, a Christian medical missionary, and a surgeon, his life’s work has centered on serving country and neighbors. We need more like him in office. Dr. Bob is a conservative who will work to repeal Obamacare and balance the budget, and he has signed the pledge to self-limit the time he’ll spend in Washington. His campaign is propelled by the good Georgia grassroots. Let’s send Dr. Bob to the House on July 22nd!

Barry Loudermilk

BARRY LOUDERMILK FOR U.S. CONGRESS (GA-11)

Barry Loudermilk has a proven record of conservatism in the Georgia General Assembly, one that I hope he can bring to the weak-kneed in the halls of Congress. Barry is an Air Force veteran, small business owner, father, grandfather, and husband who met his beautiful wife in the great state of Alaska many summers ago. Barry will take his strong work ethic, life experiences, and conservative principles to Washington where he will join the fight to restore our great nation and use the Constitution as his guide. Please join me in supporting Barry Loudermilk for U.S. Congress on July 22nd.

~ Sarah Palin
