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:

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:

Hillary: “This Was the Fog of War” Interview with Baier and Van Susteren

By Isabel Matos

It was a quiet day and then… Hillary.  Hillary on CNN. Hillary on Fox News.  I had so much I wanted to say about the CNN interview but below is the FOX News interview with Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren (in four parts). It was incredible. I’m not an expert on Hillary or body language but she did not seem comfortable especially at the beginning. Her eye contact with the interviewers was brief. She did listen and look at them intently while they asked their questions but she resumed to using lot of hand gestures and looking down again when it was her turn to reply. There was that awkward laugh as well.  The cackle.  Part 1 of 4.

Part 1 video clip Benghazi, the Video, President’s whereabouts night of the attack.

Was there any moment where she was sincere? It seemed like it was all spin and denial. Just lies. And excuses.

Unlike the CNN interview where she seemed to be speaking to O.J.’s jury (the audience) who could not see wrong, she was challenged by respectful interviewers and an intelligent viewership on Fox who saw right through her well-rehearsed lines. Her answers were so difficult to digest they were even entertaining. Like O.J. all you could think of as she spoke was the magnitude of the lies and her attempts to save herself – one could consider her actual lifetime achievement. She’s soulless but was still treated like a legendary figure and fragile vase by all who trashed her in 2008  on CNN. Either way it was pitiful.

As the attack is happening Hillary writes in her book that she goes from her 7th floor of State department to her home in Washington. Her Deputy Assistant Secretary Charlene Lamb testified before Congress last year that she was in contact in real time contact with the diplomatic security agent who was manning the  on the grounds in Benghazi while the attacks were going on.  He alerted the Embassy in Tripoli, CIA and Bureau of Diplomatic security in D.C.

Hillary says they did not have a real time video to follow what was happening on the ground in Benghazi but that they were in direct communication-insofar as it was possible as they were under heavy attack. She said they (security) had a lot going on there. She spoke with Director Petraeus not Panetta specifically, and was on a secure video conference with a full array of officials with National Security Adviser, Secretary Panetta and General Dempsey. She said the Defense department was in the room where the video conference was going on.

Hillary said she did not talk to Lamb that night, that Lamb was not the only one monitoring the phone lines. This is important because Charlene LAMB had sent to Tripoli a response per Hillary (July 2012) not to make formal requests for an extension of security teams to leave in August

Hillary testified January 2013 that she did not know of any reports that contradicted the IC (Intelligence Community).  She described this as “the fog of war.”  She said that the investigations carried out concluded that the intelligence community concluded that the protests were spontaneous. At the time they said the assault in Cairo was assessed as spontaneous protests clearly linked to the video. 

There were no doubt terrorists involved -attackers- but there was a multitude of characters involved who had different motivations (extremism, ideology, video).  Bret asks if she talked to Obama that night. She said the president was in the oval office when she got word of the attack. She needed to talk to our defense officials, Panetta and the president who said “Do everything you can.”

Bret puts out the press release where she blames inflammatory material on the violence that broke out but Hillary doesn’t remember whether she talked about the video to the President or not.  She said her priorities were straight-to protect our people, get them to safety, make sure that other attacks or other posts were not going to happen, and let’s learn what happen to prevent in real time. Bret’s reaction:

2

Hillary says she knows there are a lot of questions, refers to the unclassified version of the Accountability Review Board by Congressional Committee, suggesting viewers consult those.

Part 2 video clip Afghanistan, Bergdhal exchange, 5 Taliban released in Qatar, Egypt – not a threat or dangerous. Iraq

Part 3 video  Back to previous remarks she made about taking responsibility after the Benghazi attack. “What exactly were you taking responsibility for?” Baier questioned.

Part 4 video  Clinton on Jailed Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi, NSA Spying, Sexism, ‘Phony’ IRS Scandal

Greta has always defended Governor Palin. They have traveled with Reverend Graham on missions together with their husbands.  Greta has visited Alaska at least a couple of times. She has admired how they go about their life – without security, despite all the attention and threats they’ve been the objects of.  I can only imagine Sarah’s truthful ways and transparency must have had an effect on her over time. She genuinely respects Governor Palin and has always defended women’s rights. She pointed out to Hillary that yes, there was sexism against her in 08, but when no one came to Sarah’s defense after being accused of not being the mother of her baby with special needs, the silence was deafening.  Hillary was agreed and that was as close to a real moment as we got tonight I think.  

*********

The book Hillary is promoting Hard Choices is not doing well. I am sure no one would want to buy a book to read about a cover up. They would purchase one to know about the truth.  I am glad this day is over. I saved a few more screen grabs from clips 1 and 2.

CNN’s Double Hypocrisy on Leland Yee

leland yee

by Whitney Pitcher

At Breitbart, Tony Lee writes of  CNN’s hypocrisy in their refusal to cover the gun trafficking charge levied at current California state senator (and secretary of state candidate until Thursday ), Leland Yee:

CNN dismissed complaints that the network was not covering last week’s shocking arrest of Democrat Leland Yee, the California state senator who was arrested for alleged arms trafficking and bribery, and falsely asserted that it does not give attention to state senators and secretary of state races.

That standard did not apply to Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis, whom CNN covered relentlessly. This was long before she even considered a gubernatorial run after filibustering a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks and make those conducted before then safer.

Viewers and readers on Friday complained that the network, just like Politico, was not reporting or discussing Yee’s scandal online, and the official and verified @CNNWriters account tweeted to one critic that ignoring Yee’s arrest was standard practice.

Lee then linked a tweet from CNNWriters’ account which notes that CNN covers state senate and secretary of state races “just about never”. As he notes, CNN covered Texas state senator Wendy Davis extensively. The comparison of Davis vs. Yee illustrates CNN’s hypocrisy quite well, but what if we looked at CNN’s coverage of Yee vs. Yee? Let us flashback to 2010, shall we?

You may recall that Governor Palin gave a speech at California State University-Stanislaus in 2010, a speech that brought in record fundraising for the university. However, this particular speech may be better known as “bendystrawgate”.  California Democrats , including then attorney general and current governor Jerry Brown, wanted to investigate the contract that the university made with Palin for her speech. That contract included such diva-like demands as bendable drinking straws. The horrors! However, Brown was not the only Democrat to request the investigation. As CNN reported in April 2010 (emphasis mine):

Attorney General Jerry Brown opened an investigation Tuesday into the finances of the California State University Stanislaus Foundation, which raises money for the university and booked Palin to headline its June event.

“We are taking this action to make sure that the money raised goes toward the intended educational purposes and not a dollar is wasted or misspent,” said Brown, a Democratic gubernatorial candidate.

State Sen. Leland Yee, also a Democrat, has demanded to see the speaking contract, citing the public records Act. At a Tuesday news conference, Yee said any destruction of requested documents violated the law.

CNN’s claim that they do not cover state senators is bogus, and if they were to argue that they don’t cover state senate races, it should be noted that Yee was running for re-election to the senate in 2010. In fact, the CNN story linked above came just 5 days after Yee announced his re-election.

It’s no wonder that Governor Palin noted the media’s constant need to distract from the truth and selectively cover “local” politics.

This is CNN, or Hey, That Kathy Griffin Sure is a Class Act, Huh!

kathy griffin

By Gary P Jackson

Because nothing says “class” better than a skank simulating fellatio on a gay man, on national TV.

On New Years Eve, many of us who traditionally enjoy an agreeable meal out, then return home to avoid the crowds of partiers, sat back and enjoyed Megyn Kelly and Bill Hemmer on Fox News. They make a cute couple, and the show, which included acts like Pat Benatar, as well as set ups from Greg Guttfield and Kimberly Guilfoyle, was fun and all in all it made for a pleasant evening.

The handful who still watch CNN were treated to this:

From Newsbusters:

On Monday night’s program, after first telling co-host Anderson Cooper “I’m going to tickle your sack,” she shortly after midnight actually kissed his crotch (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Roughly eleven minutes into the program which began at 10 PM, Cooper commented about how on Twitter folks were suggesting that there should be a game that whenever he giggles nervously during the show, contestants have to take a drink.

Then, completely out of the blue, Griffin said, “I’m going to tickle your sack. You can say sack. That’s not bad.

An obviously nervous Cooper responded, “I don’t know what you’re talking about. I have no sack of gifts here.

Griffin then suggested the camera pan lower so the audience can see her “naughty gestures.

When Cooper continued to try and clean it up by again referring to a sack of Christmas presents, Griffin asked, “You’re calling your privates your Christmas presents?

When Cooper said, “No,” Griffin replied, “That’s typical hot guy. ‘Let’s open up the Christmas presents.’”

But Griffin wasn’t finished with her lewd behavior.

For Anderson’s part, he tried to stay professional.

I’m no prude, and if people want to get a bit risque, there is certainly a time and place. This was neither the time, nor the place.

One more reason Americans have a hard time taking CNN seriously.

Pure Evil but Totally Consistent: CNN Founder, Obama Supporter Ted Turner Glad Soldiers are Committing Suicide

By Gary P Jackson

As I stated in an earlier post: Liberalism is not compatible with civilized society. We see this proven to us on a daily basis. The latest example of this is a horrific statement made by CNN founder, Obama supporter, and former husband of “Hanoi Jane” Fonda: Ted Turner.

Speaking to CNN’s Piers Morgan Turner starts to say it’s “terrific” then catches himself and says it’s “good” that soldiers are killing themselves:

Sickening.

Now it’s easy to dismiss Turner as a lunatic, because he is, but that would be a mistake. Turner is an evil being who truly hates his fellow man. He’s also a rabid member of the radical “green” movement that advocates the mass extermination of humans, in order to save the planet.

In December of 2009 I wrote: Climate Change Zealots: Not Just Wrong, But Pure Evil Too in response to a well meaning, but naive documentary entitled Not Evil, Just Wrong.

After outlining the greed and lies being perpetrated by weasels like Al Gore, Maurice Strong, and Barack Obama, in order to make a quick buck, I looked into those who want to limit world wide population by force, in order to save the world from nonexistent global warming.

There are a little over 7 billion human beings on the planet, according to the most up to date statistics, Turner wanted to see the entire world’s population reduced to 250-300 million, roughly the population of the United States.

As you see below, Turner is more the norm than the exception among major global warming hoaxers, and communists who hate America. [though one is pretty much the same as the other] You’ll note many who hoped to make billions off of this hoax are among this group. Barack Obama, Al Gore, Maurice Strong, and others were involved with the Chicago Climate Exchange, a scheme that was thought to have been able to generate $10 TRILLION a year in volume, and would have made all wealthy beyond anyone’s wildest dreams:

Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?

– Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Programme

A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.“

– Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies

The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.”

– Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund

Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.”

– Professor Maurice King

We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.

– David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

Complex technology of any sort is an assault on human dignity. It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it.

– Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute

The prospect of cheap fusion energy is the worst thing that could happen to the planet.

– Jeremy Rifkin, Greenhouse Crisis Foundation

Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.

– Prof Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University

Our insatiable drive to rummage deep beneath the surface of the earth is a willful expansion of our dysfunctional civilization into Nature.

– Al Gore, Earth in the Balance

The big threat to the planet is people: there are too many, doing too well economically and burning too much oil.

– Sir James Lovelock, BBC Interview

My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.

-Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable.

– Maurice Strong, Rio Earth Summit

All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.

– Club of Rome, The First Global revolution

Mankind is the most dangerous, destructive, selfish and unethical animal on the earth.

– Michael Fox, vice-president of The Humane Society

Humans on the Earth behave in some ways like a pathogenic micro-organism, or like the cells of a tumor.

– Sir James Lovelock, Healing Gaia

The Earth has cancer and the cancer is Man.

– Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point

A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells, the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.

– Prof. Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb

A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.

– United Nations, Global Biodiversity Assessment

“A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”

– Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor

… the resultant ideal sustainable population is hence more than 500 million but less than one billion.

– Club of Rome, Goals for Mankind

One America burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladeshes. This is a terrible thing to say in order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”

– Jacques Cousteau, UNESCO Courier

If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.”

– Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, patron of the World Wildlife Fund

I suspect that eradicating small pox was wrong. It played an important part in balancing ecosystems.

– John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal

The extinction of the human species may not only be inevitable but a good thing.

– Christopher Manes, Earth First!

Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.

– David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club

In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.

– Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution

We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts… Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.

– Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports

Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.

– Sir John Houghton, first chairman of IPCC

It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.

– Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”

– Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation

“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony, climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”

-Christine Stewart, fmr Canadian Minister of the Environment

The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest opportunity to lift Global Consciousness to a higher level.

– Al Gore, accepting the Nobel Peace Prize<

If you ever wonder why democrats not only push the mass slaughter of human babies, through abortion, but actually celebrate it and hold it sacred, look to these incredible evil statements above.

As I’ve said, liberalism is in no way compatible with civilized society. These people are truly evil. Maniacal and deranged. Ted Turner is the poster child for this evil.

What creates such evil in one’s heart?

Sarah Palin weighed in on this earlier on Thursday, posting the video and saying:

Ted Turner’s comments here are disgusting and shameful. He needs to apologize to our troops for this.

I wouldn’t hold my breath! Arrogant, superior, evil people rarely apologize. They think they have nothing to apologize for.

Debate Thoughts: Mitt Strong. Newt Battered. And Why Aren’t More People Supporting Rick Santorum?

By Gary P Jackson

Sitting down to watch Thursday night’s debate, I expected a few fireworks, as CNN has figured out if you just let the fur fly, more people will watch. Debates as entertainment fascinates me but also saddens me a bit too.

Debates like this are more raw, if you will, but a lot of time is spent on just a few issues. Many of the things Americans wanted to see discussed, like the economy, jobs, and all of Obama’s corruption, were never heard from.

One thing was evident early on. Mitt Romney came loaded for bear and Wolf Blitzer wasn’t going to be like John King and serve up softballs to Newt so he could pander to the crowd.

The first questions were on immigration and then Cuban and South American policy. Romney really hammered Newt. Mitt has the best policy of any candidate when it comes to dealing with illegal immigrants. He has a pretty good record on this from his time as governor.

Newt is a typical establishment type who wants amnesty. He uses a lot of weasel words to try and mask it all, but in the end, amnesty is where he’s at.

Rick Santorum was very good when talking Cuba and South America. He noted the dangers of allowing the status quo in Cuba. He also took on Obama’s South American policies, mentioning our allies in Columbia specifically, and how Obama hung them out to dry, protecting the unions here at home.

The part where Romney really shined though, and Newt’s world came crashing down around him, was when the discussion got more personal and Blitzer started talking about Romney’s personal wealth and Newt’s attacks against Mitt.

Newt again sounded more like the closet socialist he is than the Conservative he pretends to be. It’s more than apparent Newt loves playing the class warfare game just as much as his fellow travelers in the democrat party.

Romney’s unapologetic defense of capitalism, and his own personal wealth, was one of the highlights of the debate.

Conservatives celebrate success. We truly believe anyone can and should be successful. We don’t think there should be any limits on success.

Then the debate turned to ObamaCare and by extension RomneyCare. Mitt has gotten nominally better at making his case for the state run system, but it still rings hollow. There are so many better solutions than mandated health care insurance. Newt is no prize though, as NewtCare is essentially RomneyCare for the entire nation.

This is where Rick Santorum really shined. He correctly pointed out both Romney and Newt support mandates. In fact Newt has supported mandates much longer than Mitt has. Long after Romney has said his plan was OK [in his mind] for a state to put in place, but not right for the nation, Newt has continued to push his own plan that includes mandated insurance coverage or a personal cash bond of up to $150,000.

Santorum shredded both Mitt and Newt and never stopped for the rest of the debate.

As I watched the debate, I also had an eye on my Twitter feed. As Santorum was ripping into Mitt and Newt the hardest, a story came across that Rick himself had once supported individual mandates. It claimed that in 1994 Santorum was in favor of mandates. Problem is, it was quoting another source that had no direct quotes from Santorum, or video.

I did a bit of research and found video of a 1994 debate when Santorum was challenging the incumbent democrat Senator, Harris Wofford. Watching the video, one thing is clear, Santorum has been pretty darned consistent over the years, on health care and other issues. Watch and decide for yourself where Rick was on mandates in 1994.

One note, a lot of people lost their minds during the health care portion of the debate when Romney told Santorum “it isn’t worth getting mad about.” A lot of people took that to mean Romney didn’t think that health care was worth getting mad about. The real loons extrapolated that to mean Liberty and Freedom wasn’t worth getting mad over. [in Mitt’s mind] That’s simply insane. I watched the entire debate twice, and Mitt was talking to Rick on a personal level.

If you saw the debate, you know Santorum was quite passionate as he ripped into both Mitt and Newt over their love for mandates. Mitt was really hit hard. He seemed to have taken it personally. Sadly, a lot of people used his remark to Santorum to try and score cheap [and dishonest] political points. Lots of that going around these days.

When it’s all said and done, my take-aways from the debate are:

Mitt is most certainly capable of hitting opponents hard when needed. He may not be combative and bombastic, but he knows how to win.

Newt struggles when he’s not teed up for one of his patented long rants at the media. If he can’t find away to attack the debate moderator, his performance isn’t nearly as entertaining.

Something else I noted about the two men. When Mitt is talking to someone at these debates, he looks them straight in the eye. Newt tends not to.

Newt struggles when actually confronted on his record and ideas.

The real thing that struck me though, and honestly, the reason that prompted me to write this article in the first place, is why aren’t people supporting Rick Santorum as the “Not Romney” candidate instead of Newt. Seriously, Santorum has no problem being strong and forceful.

Now personally, I’ve been cool to Rick for several reasons. It’s important to me that a candidate have Executive Experience. Good business skills are a plus, but I still think holding an Executive position in government is essential. Working with a legislature is a little different than working with a board of directors.

I also disagree with Rick on his approach to social issues. I may agree with his personal stances on the issues, but not his professional ones.

Just as I don’t want government to tell me what I can eat, what I can drive, or what sort of light bulb I must use, I don’t want government in my bedroom. Liberty and Freedom is very important to Americans. Rick comes off as a Statist on social issues. This is troubling, and will hurt him in the general election. And we already have a nanny stater in office.

That said, Santorum has a solid grasp of the issues. He’s not right on all of them, but at least he has an understanding of where we are at and where we need to be.

Also, and this is big, Rick is focused and on point. You won’t see him going off on flights of fancy dreaming up new ways to spend money we don’t have. No moon colonies turned into our 51st state under a President Rick Santorum! I believe Santorum would be pretty good on fiscal issues.

I really don’t understand how Newt Gingrich, one of the least desirable characters in all of politics, has become the Conservative standard bearer in this election. Newt has been a collaborator and enabler for the socialist movement since his earliest days in politics back in the 1970s. He’s morally bankrupt and untrustworthy.

He’s also a Big Government Statist. Never met a problem he couldn’t find a Big Government “solution” for. And when short on problems, he creates them, just so he can create more government. He lives in a fantasy world where he thinks up grandiose projects, and then gets to play puppet master with everyone’s lives. Too much time hanging out with Alvin Toffler.

Readers know if I had my way, we’d all be rooting on Sarah Palin to victory right now. I think this election will go down in history as one of the greatest missed opportunities for real leadership, and restoration, in our nation’s history. Sarah Palin is the only one who meets every requirement needed to actually do what must be done.

That said, we live in the real world.

Mitt Romney has a lot of warts. But I still think, out of this bunch, he has the best chance of becoming our next president. Mitt has run for president before. He knows how to campaign, and has a solid support system in place. His campaign is organized and prepared.

Thing is, Rick Santorum has a real chance too.

He’s had two great debate performances in a row. Personally, I care more about records and abilities, but it seems most Americans give debate performance real weight. So be it.

Rick Santorum doesn’t have the baggage Newt Gingrich has. He’s also been mighty consistent throughout his career. You don’t find any instances of Rick standing with the worst socialists of our time, and helping them advance their cause the way Newt has. As I’ve said before, Newt has done more to advance socialism in America than many democrats.

Santorum is clean cut and has a pretty good record as a Senator. He knows what he believes and is consistent about it. Mitt Romney is a human windsock, and Newt Gingrich has flip flopped all over the place. He’s inconsistent, undisciplined, and at times, quite erratic. Santorum has neither problem.

Unlike Mitt and Newt, Rick Santorum really seems to have the courage of his convictions. He knows what he believes.

I’ve said before, I could vote for Mitt Romney against Obama and sleep well at night. From what I’m seeing, I could vote for Rick Santorum and not just against someone else.

When you really break it down, being able to vote FOR someone, rather than just against the other guy, is ideal. It means a great deal personally. You are more apt to be excited about that vote. More apt to do more than just vote. You’ll get out and help.

Sarah Palin excited everyone because they knew they were voting FOR something. Not just a person, but an idea. A movement. Sarah has that ability to inspire.

It’s not fair to compare Rick Santorun to Sarah Palin. It’s not fair to compare anyone out there to her, so I won’t try.

Rick is his own guy. He seems solid and reliable. Consistent and trustworthy. If Conservatives want a real “Not Mitt Romney” candidate, Rick Santorum is their man. I believe, like Mitt, Rick Santorum can beat Barack Obama.

If somehow Newt Gingrich ends up being the Republican nominee, the democrats would think it was Christmas every single day. That is if they believed in that sort of thing!

I am not endorsing anyone, but if folks are simply looking for someone besides Mitt to throw their support behind, Rick Santorum, in my opinion, is far more worthy of that support than Newt Gingrich. He’s a better candidate, and if elected would make a hell of a lot better president.

Sarah Palin: Tea Party Big Winner In Monday Night Debate

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin was on Greta’s show Monday night after the debate to give viewers her thoughts on the event. She said without a doubt the Tea Party was the big winner of the debate. She praised CNN for helping legitimize the movement.

After that it was all about Rick Perry. Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum went after Perry hard over his decision to usurp the Texas legislative process and order school girls to be injected with a risky vaccine, by Executive Order.The charges of crony capitalism were levied by both Bachmann and Santorum, a concern that was furthered by Sarah.

Sarah went as far as reminding viewers that she had worried at the time what Perry was up to, and referred to the 25,000 e-mails the media went through as proof of her concern. At the time Sarah says she saw Perry as a fellow “Maverick” and reformer, and this concerned her greatly.

She also praised Newt Gingrich for being the one to talk about government waste and overspending. Though not in the video, Newt, who came on after her, praised Sarah for her Iowa speech, and said he would be tweeting it and “doing other things with it” in the future.

A big interview and one that shows America that Sarah Palin is very much concerned about corruption in government. Something she has fought for 20 years. We see in Sarah Palin one of the very few people not afraid to tackle the problems in her own party. She understands it’s hard to go after the democrats when our own house is in such a mess. She’s looking to fix that situation.

CNN’s Don Lemon Talks About His Fun Interview with Sarah Palin and Being Assaulted By Marcus Bachmann

CNN’s Don Lemon reportedly spent an hour or so with Governor Sarah Palin on Friday as she took in the sights and sounds of the Iowa State Fair as part of her One Nation tour. If you haven’t seen his report, click here.

In the video above Lemon talks about the time he had with Sarah and both he and Wolf Blitzer comment on how wonderful it was she talked with him and all of the reporters. As you know, when the Governor was touring the East Coast earlier in the summer, Scott Conroy reported Sarah’s press availability was so great, on more than one occasion, he actually ran out of questions to ask her.

Unfortunately Don Lemon’s day wasn’t all peaches and cream. He would later encounter the Bachmann campaign.

Let me set the scene for you.

First, as Jason Clayworth of the Des Moines Register reports, Bachmann was 30 minutes late to speak at her scheduled Iowa State Fair soapbox event. Yup, they actually stand on a soapbox and speak to the crowd. Each candidate is allotted 20 minutes to state their case. A few minutes in the wheels came off the wagon:

She said she was going to shake hands but left the makeshift stage quickly when 17-year-old civil rights advocate Gabe Aderhold of Edina, Minn., loudly questioned her husband Marcus about his counseling techniques to “pray the gay away.

Most of her three minutes consisted of frequent campaign rhetoric that she says at many of her stops, such as her chant to make President Obama a “one-term president.”

It’s going to be a great election that’s coming up and Iowans are going to send the signal,” Bachmann said. “This is where Barack Obama got his start, this is where he’s going to come to his end. In Iowa.

At this point two blonde female “security” guards started pushing and shoving people out of the way as the Bachmanns made a hasty exit, leave her stunned fans just standing there. During the melee, CNN’s Don Lemon, an openly gay Black man, was roughed up pretty good by Michele Bachmann’s husband, Marcus.

This isn’t the first time a network reporter has had problems with Team Bachmann. ABC’s Brian Ross alleges he was attacked in South Carolina after trying to ask Michele a legitimate question about her migraine headaches.

The Bachmann’s have a history of problems with the gay community. Besides the clinic where Marcus claims to cure gays, Michele, whose sister is gay, has a history of some truly bizarre statements and actions.

Bachmann is on the record calling Disney’s Lion King gay propaganda, and an attempt to “normalize” being gay. She came to this interesting take on the popular kids movie because Elton John performs the musical score and in her mind teachers may use this as an example that gay people can be creative too. Well hell, all one has to do us watch any random show on HGTV to figure that out!

Bachmann, who considers homosexuality some sort of mental disorder, actual called the police once claiming she’d been kidnapped by lesbian nuns! As Business Insider points out here, Bachmann has a habit of calling the police with complaints that most people would just deal with, or ignore.

We’ve long held that Michele Bachmann has some serious issues, as does her husband Marcus, who calls gays “barbarians” who “need to be educated and disciplined.” [you figure it out]

Two things are for certain. The President of the United States is the President of all people, not just those they agree with. Anyone with such an open hatred, and such extreme views, of their fellow human beings, just might not be best person to sit in the Oval Office. We have a President now who is openly hostile to half the country. We need to move away from that.

Keeping that thought in mind, we also already have a thug in the White House who isn’t above sending out his supporters to intimidate those who disagree with him. They aren’t afraid to use violence either. Again, we don’t need this sort of thing. The American media is, for the most part, biased and corrupt. Deal with it. .

Lastly, we need a leader who can walk into the belly of the beast, face violent opposition head on, look it dead in the eye, and keep on doing what they are doing, instead of running away at the slightest resistance.

Here’s how it’s done:

We must elect leader who will be President of ALL the people, not just those she likes!

Video: Sarah Palin Talks Candidly With Reporters In Iowa

Vodpod videos no longer available.

By Gary P Jackson

Governor Sarah Palin drew overwhelming crowds today at the Iowa State Fair. CNN’s cameras were rolling and according to reports the Governor spent nearly an hour talking with the news channel’s Don Lemon.

This is what a winner looks like folks. Sarah is out there, comfortable in her own skin and telling it like it is. A true leader.

Sarah answers every question candidly and never refuses a question. So much for the meme she never talks to reporters the establishment has been trying to push. It should be noted on the first leg of her One Nation bus tour, on the East Coast, she gave the press so much availability, that according to RealClearPolitics’ Scott Conroy, the media literally ran out of questions to ask her!

Speaking of Conroy, we’ll have a comprehensive round up of Sarah in Iowa coming later, but in the mean time, Scott Conroy is the person to follow. He’s doing an incredible job covering Governor Palin. Check him out @RealClearScott

By the way, that cute girly-girl shirt Sarah is wearing …. on the back it says “I am.” Hmmm ….

H/T Whitney for the pick!
