Standing Room Only: Governor Sarah Palin campaigns for Pat Roberts in Kansas [Photos and Video]

Governor Sarah Palin having a laugh with United States Senator Pat Roberts in Independence, Kansas

By Gary P Jackson

Governor Sarah Palin was in Independence, Kansas on Thursday to rally support for United States Senator Pat Roberts, who faces a tough challenge from “independent” Greg Orman.

For those who haven’t been following the race, Orman, who has spent a lifetime supporting far left democrat party radicals, but has refused to answer questions on pretty much any issue, including who he will caucus with if elected [Spoiler Alert: it will be the democrats] is the democrat party’s guy, no matter the spin that he’s “independent“!

Question for readers to ponder: When was the last time a supposed “independent” who managed to get elected, caucused with anyone but the democrats? Lisa Murkowski, a democrat in all but name only [DIABLO] doesn’t count! She only caucuses with the Republicans because they allowed her to keep all of her plum committee assignments, even after she stabbed them in the back, and worked with the democrat party to beat the Republican nominee, Joe Miller, in Alaska.

Why is “independent” Orman the democrat party show pony, their great white hope? Well, the actual democrat party candidate, Chad Taylor, dropped out of the race, because he saw Kansans wanted nothing to do with another Obama clone in the Senate. The idea here is to try and fool low information voters into voting for an “independent” over the long term Republican Senator. We’ve seen this more than a few times over the years. Kansans are slowly starting to figure Orman out though.

It should be noted that Chad Taylor, the democrat, was to remain on the ballot, a customary thing when a candidate leaves the race after being chosen as the party nominee, even if they drop out. The only exception to that rule, in Kansas, is if said candidate declares he would be unable to fulfill the duties of the office he’s seeking, if elected. Though the letter Taylor sent to the Secretary of State never gave a reason for his dropping out, the Kansas State Supreme Court deemed the letter “good enough‘ and ordered Taylor’s name removed from the ballot, making it much easier for “independent” [blank slate] Orman.

There is a twist though, as a registered democrat voter, David Orel of Kansas City, Kansas, filed a new petition with the Kansas Supreme Court asking them to force the party to name a new nominee. He filed the petition after his attorney sent the party a letter saying Orel wants to vote for a democrat candidate. No word on how far this has gotten, or will go.

This brings us to Governor Palin’s visit on Thursday. With all the confusion, and outright lies [and question dodging] from Orman, with an assist from the liberal Kansas media,Senator Roberts finds himself in a tough race. Governor Palin went to help Senator Roberts, as well as set the record straight on who and what Orman really is. While highlighting Senator Roberts record of standing with Conservatives on many important issues including amnesty, ObamaCare, and fiscal integrity, Governor Plain was also there to remind voters the GOP MUST take the Senate away from the democrats. Losing is simply not an option, if America is to survive.

According to reports, Governor Palin was met with a huge standing room only crowd of eager supporters:

The Washington Post’s Phillip Rucker tweeted:

The Los Angeles Times offers this:

On Thursday, the three-term Kansas senator turned to tea party darling Sarah Palin to rally voters behind his flagging campaign. The former Alaska governor praised Roberts for standing with Sen. Ted Cruz a year ago during his marathon floor speech against President Obama’s healthcare law, which preceded a strategy that resulted in a government shutdown.

He [was] one of the few senators fulfilling campaign promises, doing what the American people asked him to do, standing there on the floor with Sen. Ted Cruz to do what they could to get rid of Obamacare,” Palin said.

The location was its own message of sorts – the small town of Independence. Palin and Roberts argued that Greg Orman, a wealthy financier who now leads in some public polls, is hardly the independent voice he casts himself as.

I know independence,” Palin said. “Supporting Barack Obama, supporting Obamacare, supporting amnesty, supporting Harry Reid? That’s not independent. That’s someone who’s trying to schnooker ya, Kansas.

The Roberts campaign’s efforts to rally the base may be a successful one in a state that hasn’t elected a Democratic senator since 1932, and which Republicans have reliably carried in presidential elections.

[ .... ]

Palin’s visit follows one a day earlier by the man who selected her for the national ticket in 2008, John McCain. Roberts said this week that Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul and others will be coming to campaign for him as well.

Roberts is framing the election as a simple choice, not between him and Orman but between Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid. It’s a gamble on his part that a solidly-red state’s frustration with Washington is pinned more on a Democratic president and his Senate allies than Congress more broadly.

The reason the governor is here is that the Republican Party is united,” Roberts told the audience at a pancake breakfast at the small town’s historical museum. “Every square inch of the Republican Party knows what’s at stake. We have to take the Senate back as a first step to turning the country around. There is only one person on the ballot that will go to Washington and kick Harry Reid out as opposed to giving him a stamp of approval.

Terrorism in Austin, Texas: 13-year-old Girl Raped By a Dozen Illegals as They Film it and Cheer

sexslaaves

By Gary P Jackson

Yet another disturbing case of a violent, and barbaric act of terrorism being committed by illegal aliens that none of the politicians want to get control of. This was an evil act, but all too common where large groups of illegals are allowed to exist.

Austin, Texas is a bastion of liberalism, and a self-declared “sanctuary city” The elected leaders in Austin are every bit as responsible for what happened to this young girl as the animals who raped her. More proof that liberalism is, indeed, the greatest evil mankind has ever faced.

From American Overlook:

Men in Texas have been arrested in connection to the rape of a 13 year old girl. The victim has told police she was sexually assaulted by 10 to 13 Latino men in an apartment complex at the Avalon Palms.

The victim was approached by three Hispanic males in their car, after she was persuaded to get in, she was taken to the nearby apartments.

She was then taken inside the apartment where the 3 men along with about 10 others took turns sexually assaulting her all while they filmed it on their cell phones.

After, they drove her to a random neighborhood and told her to “find somewhere to go”.

The girl was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors confirmed her injuries matched her story

RELATED: Obama Welcomes Illegal Immigrants With Open Arms

The two men who have been arrested are Juan Lozano Ortega, 25, and Edgar Gerardo Guzman Perez, 26. The police were able to track them from a phone call the victim made while inside their vehicle.

According to Austin’s Fox News 7, the two named above are being held on $30,000 bond each and face immigration charges [Which we all know is a sick joke in Obama's America!] Thousands of illegal aliens have been released back into America, after being detained by immigration officials, including rapists and murderers.

This vicious act of terrorism occurred in late June, but has gotten almost zero coverage outside of Austin. These acts of terrorism, carried out by illegal aliens, are all too common in the United States, and won’t stop until we force our politicians to take action. These illegals are just as big of a threat to the American people as Al Qaeda and ISIS will ever be.

Every American who is a victim of these terrorists has Obama and treasonous pro-amnesty politicians in BOTH parties to blame. May they all burn in Hell for all of eternity!

Governor Sarah Palin on Barry’s Latest World-Wide Disaster: Obama Impotent, Pulled out Early

Palin and Patriots United We Stand evernt

By Gary P Jackson

Governor Palin spoke at the 960 Patriot’s United We Stand event Wednesday night and delivered a scathing appraisal of Obama’s handling of events on the world stage!

From Ron Devito and US4Palin:

Obama Impotent, Sarah Palin said last night in a scathing speech at 960 The Patriot’s United We Stand Event. “He pulled out early,” she said likely speaking of leaving Iraq. The former Alaska Governor said she respects the office, but not Obama. Gov. Palin did not mince words as she unloaded a barrage of one-liners against the feckless occupant of the White House. Obama Impotent was clearly the take-away.

Obama Impotent, she said from his non-handling of ISIS, the Second Amendment, PC, illegal immigrants, and our Marine left behind in Mexico. She called Obama Impotent for his addiction to other people’s money.

Obama knew about ISIS for over a year, but did nothing. He still has no strategy and thinks ISIS can be managed. This is why Gov. Palin called Obama Impotent.

Here are some blow-by-blow accounts of the event, via Twitter:

Governor Sarah Palin Hammers “Misogynist Frat Boys” at Daily Caller for Their LATEST Lies About Her

Carlson

By Gary P Jackson

The Daily Caller has a nasty habit of attacking Governor Sarah Palin outright, and telling lies about her as well. Tucker Carlson, the head a-hole over there, runs nothing less than a sophomoric frat house [something I have proudly pointed out not only to him, but his running buddy Matt Lewis, on more than one occasion] This little “good old boys club” is particularly fond of making sexist remarks about women, often while outright lying about them.

Such was the case back in 2011, when Carlson not only lied outright about Governor Palin’s popularity, and viability in Iowa, but in a tweet called the Governor a “MILF” which, if you don’t know, stands for Mother I’d Like to F*ck.

Palin’s popularity falling in Iowa, but maintains lead to become supreme commander of Milfistan

Stacy Drake took Tucker and his boys club to task in a blistering op-ed. for Conservatives4Palin

When more clowns, like Red State’s Erick Erickson joined in, yucking it up with Carlson, and repeating the polling misinformation, to boot, Whitney let loose on the whole lot with her blistering: MILF–Misogynists (and Elites) I’d Like to Fulminate.

For her part, Greta called Carlson a “pig‘ after his remark about Governor Palin.

In June of 2012, the Caller, in various articles, called Governor Palin “irreverent” a favorite attack of those who oppose Governor Palin’s common sense conservatism. That was par for the course, of course, but hilariously, those jackasses weren’t done. Governor Palin was so “irrelevant” [in their eyes] that not one, but TWO articles were penned, by The DC’s “Senior Editor” Jamie Weinstein and Alex Pappas, respectively, BEGGING Governor Palin to endorse Mitt Romney. Even in this,“Senior Editor” Weinstein couldn’t help himself:

Sarah Palin has become increasingly irrelevant, but her endorsement still remains sought after by GOP candidates.

After begging for her gold plated endorsement for the feckless Romney, he ended with:

Sarah, Sarah where are you?

Pappas whined in his piece:

While Sarah Palin has made it concretely clear that she’s opposed to President Barack Obama’s re-election, the former governor of Alaska has not yet offered a formal endorsement of the presumptive Republican nominee for president.

Palin — the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, who admitted to voting for Newt Gingrich during the GOP primary — said earlier this year that she would support Romney “100 percent” if he became the nominee.

But she hasn’t been very enthusiastic about supporting the former Massachusetts governor since he clinched the nod.

I honestly believe that anybody running on a GOP ticket would be infinitely better than what we have today, with these failed socialist policies,” Palin said on NBC’s “Today” show in April — after it was clear that Romney would be the nominee.

Aides to Palin did not comment on questions posed by TheDC on this topic Monday.

It’s no surprise that she’s not Romney’s biggest fan: Fox News reported over this weekend that in giving a keynote speech to conservative activists Friday at the RightOnline convention in Las Vegas, Palin did not mention Romney once during her 35-minute address.

Is it any wonder why Governor Palin and her people felt no obligation to give the frat boys the time of day?

I covered the whole affair here.

That brings us to the latest outright LIE The Daily Caller has chosen to spread. Out of the blue a few days ago, they claimed Governor Palin DEMANDED an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Their claim is that Governor Palin wanted to “set the record straight” and promote herself. Never mind Governor Palin had ALREADY appeared on the show when Conan O’Brien was the host, and she and William Shatner did a hilarious beat poetry bit together.

Governor Palin took to Facebook a few days ago to set Carlson and his lying crew of frat boys straight about her appearance with Jay Leno:

Guess the boys at The Daily Caller spent a bit too much time at the frat house and not enough time in their college library. (Or maybe it’s in one of their Jr. High tree forts where their leader gathers the boys to “report” their “conservative” issues.) Their claims about what I supposedly “demanded” of the Tonight Show are, in their frat boy terms, B.S. This is not the first time we’ve had to correct their sloppy “journalism.” Paraphrasing and dramatizing sure doesn’t fit into any fair and balanced image, especially from a little fella loving his title of FOX News Channel host. Maybe those bow ties are a bit too tight, bros.

In contrast to your erroneous reporting (Hey! Come to think of it, this time it’s merely erroneous; it’s not your usual misogynist slant!), we loved visiting the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I had a blast on the show. Leno’s team was top notch, professional, and funny; and some even brought their families to work that day so they could meet mine. That was neat! Thanks for the memories, Jay!

I’m looking forward to reading Dave Berg’s great new book “Behind the Curtain: An Insider’s View of Jay Leno’s Tonight Show.” Dave reached out by email to my team to share the following: “I consider Gov. Palin’s booking on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show one of the best gets I ever got. I had worked long and hard to book her, both during and after her vice-presidential campaign. She turned out to be a charming guest, who also did a killer standup, and her ratings won the night by a large margin. You can’t ask for more from a guest.”

Thank you for the kind comments, Dave. Back at ya!

Please check out Dave’s new book. It looks like a really fun read. You can get a copy here: http://is.gd/HLzN4o or here: http://is.gd/z7Yknh

Leno -Berg

Who you gonna believe, a filthy liar who attacks Conservatives, or Jay Leno’s booker and top hand?

BTW, how good was Governor Palin on the Tonight Show? The very same time she was on, Governor Mitt Romney was on sexist pig David Letterman’s show. The difference between Governor Palin’s star-power and Governor Romney’s complete lack of personality was so great, Jon Stewart produced his own hilarious bit, which can be seen here: Leno-Palin vs Letterman-Romney.

Point, Palin all the way around.

#Ferguson: Facts Don’t Matter Anymore

Originally posted on askmarion:

Facts and details are starting to leak out concerning the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri—albeit slowly. But facts don’t seem to matter anymore in our idiocracy, i.e. mobocracy. If they did, I doubt Ferguson would be in flames right now. But I digress.

Earlier this week, I was listening to a caller on the Dana Loesch radio show who allegedly had spoken with the spouse of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson—the officer who shot Michael Brown. The caller claimed Michael Brown became involved in an altercation with Officer Darren Wilson, and even tried to take his gun—which allegedly went off during the struggle. The caller also stated Brown bum-rushed the police officer.

Additionally, an audio of some alleged eyewitnesses to the lethal shooting of Michael Brown has recently come out and seems to corroborate the details provided by…

NRO’s Hillyer calls for censure, possible removal of Henry Barbour from RNC for race-baiting ads and attempted cover-up.

Originally posted on Mississippi PEP:

National Review journalist Quinn Hillyer is calling for the censure and possible removal of Henry Barbour from the RNC for funding race-baiting ads in the runoff for the U.S. Senate primary in Mississippi. Hillyer writes that the race-baiting ads pushed by Barbour, followed by lies to other RNC leaders to cover his involvement merit serious punitive action.

Hillyer writes:

I hope to emphasize that censure is merited not because (Henry) Barbour worked against the wishes of many conservatives, not because he tried to attract black Democratic votes in a Republican primary, not just because there was an element of hardball in his tactics, and certainly not because he’s on what many conservatives consider to be the wrong side in intra-RNC disputes. It also has nothing to do with legal questions or allegations of direct vote fraud. Instead, what is specifically at issue and unforgiveable here, and what deserves sanction, is…

A Mississippian’s Reply to Ann Coulter

Gary P Jackson:

A MUST READ not only as a retort to Ann Coulter’s idiotic attacks on Chris McDaniel, but for background on former DEMOCRAT Thad Cochran’s very racist past.

Originally posted on Mississippi Conservative Daily:

Ann-Coulter-6-600x466

In recent weeks we have seen two columns by “conservative” columnist Ann Coulter about the current controversy over the Mississippi Senate race.  Allow me to finally reply to this opportunistic, money-grubbing Establishment hack masquerading as a conservative:

Ann, in your first piece on July 9, you condemned Senator Chris McDaniel for fighting against what is massive corruption and you slander his supporters as “clowns and nuts” and the “sore loser brigade” for backing him.  You detailed many campaigns where Republicans had elections outright stolen from them, namely Richard Nixon, John Thune, and Bob Dornan, who took the supposed high road and did not challenge the results.

Yes, you are correct, those Republicans had elections stolen from them, and it’s quite likely that Romney was a victim as well, given some of the numbers in Ohio and elsewhere.  But what happened, Ann?  The Republicans did NOT fight back and, as a result…

Sammy Hagar Promises to Pay Sarah Palin’s Next Speeding Ticket if She “Does Better”

Sammy Hagar Cabo Wabo

By Gary P Jackson

Something on the lighter side of things to start the day. As readers may have heard, Sarah Palin was going a little fast the other day in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. When stopped by the police, she “blamed” rock legend Sammy Hagar [jokingly, of course] for the offense.

Governor Palin was stopped on July 16 driving her Toyota Tundra pickup with the license plate “LUVUSA” and was fined $154 for driving 63 mph in a 45 mph zone. She was driving home from an early morning Bikram hot yoga workout in Anchorage, according to reports. As it happens she was listening to Sammy Hagar’s mega-hit “I Can’t Drive 55” before she was stopped!

I was thinking, I wasn’t speeding, I was qualifying,” she said.

On Wednesday Sammy Hagar sent Governor Palin a tweet offering to pay her next speeding ticket, if she promises to “do better next time.” We assume that means breaking the century mark on the old speedometer!

As you know, Governor Palin loves speed. Besides going to the Daytona 500 a few years back, she’s taken a ride at the Indy 500 festival with racing legend Parnelli Jones and hung out in the pits during the race with team owner Sarah Fisher-Hartman:

Ben Carson, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Top Western Conservative 2016 POTUS Straw Poll

Western Conservative Summit

By Gary P Jackson

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.
