New SarahPAC Mailer Strongly Suggests Sarah Palin Will Mount A 2016 Presidential Bid

Many long time supporters of Governor Sarah Palin, those of us who have followed her career since early 2007, a year and a half before she was to be chosen as the Republican nominee for Vice President and became an international figure, have been wondering why the Governor has been silent now that several Republicans, including her good friend Ted Cruz, have announced they are officially in for 2016. Maybe, just maybe we have our answer.

Other than jabs at Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney in her Iowa speech, which prompted Rick Moran at PJ Media to say this ….

Palin sounds like a candidate to me. And she’s teeing off on Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney, implying that their establishmentarianism is no better than the status quo — a potent theme that will resonate with the conservative base.
She also implies that Bush/Romney aren’t strong enough to get in the trenches with Hillary and the Clinton machine to duke it out. She certainly describes herself when she says she thinks the GOP candidate should be “considered a bit avante garde.” In fact, the way she describes the ideal candidate is like she’s looking in a mirror…

Palin may have other reasons for running, including denying Romney and Bush a cakewalk to the nomination. Her favorability ratings may be a liability, but her name recognition is far better than any other conservative candidate. Her entrance in the race would be a wild card that could peel off support from both establishment and conservative candidates alike.

I have one pick with Moran’s comments though. The last major poll that included Sarah Palin left her off as a potential candidate, but measured her favorables and unfavorables against a huge field of potential candidates. The 2014 poll had Palin’s favorability at 70%, among Republicans and Republican leaning independents. That’s UP from 67% in 2012 and considerably higher than anyone the pollster, Public Policy Polling, offered up as an actual candidate. Also, people shouldn’t dismiss lightly the fact that Governor Palin has been considered one of the Most Admired Women in the Word in Gallup’s annual survey since 2008, never being ranked lower than third on the list! Palin’s supposed unfavorability is more fantasy than fact!

Governor Palin has focused all of her energy, when it comes to 2016, on Hillary Clinton. She has hammered Hillary for not being able to multi-task, and use on phone for official government business, and one for personal use, going so far as to post a photo of herself, as Governor, holding her newborn son juxtaposed against Hillary’s claimed inability to figure it all out:

Sarah Palin Multi-tasking w Cellphones

In yet another scandal, Hillary was exposed as using her device for both personal and official State Department communications. A big no-no!

Earlier Governor Palin reminded Americans that while Hillary has erased her entire email history at the State Department, after using an illegal computer [something that would have anyone else already serving time in prison] Palin’s own e-mails were put under a microscope with the left wing Washington Post actually asking it’s readers to help scour through some 25,000 emails looking for the “juicy partsWaPo and it’s readers had hoped to find all kinds of incriminating evidence of SOMETHING, but instead found page after page of e-mails proving that not only was Governor Palin incredibly competent, but proved to be one of the hardest working public servants in the country. Something those of us who have followed Governor Plain for the better part of a decade already knew!

Sarah Palin email Truth

The Palin e-mails also put an end to the lie that she supported and took money for a “bridge to nowhere” when they revealed she wanted to give the money back, and earmark it for replacement of the I-35 Bridge that collapsed in Minnesota, killing and injuring many. Of course, as there was no legal way to do that, the money went to Alaska’s general fund. We have a link to many of Governor Palin’s official e-mails, as well as her outstanding record of accomplishments a Governor, here.

Several days ago Governor Palin posted this on Facebook:

America – ready for Hillary? Some of us are. Join us and begin here…

WATCH the Game-Changing New Video That Drops A Bomb On Hillary And Can Finish Her

A truth bomb of epic proportions …

She included a link to Western Journalism and the article America Rising Releases New Hillary Video: ‘Trustworthy?’

Governor Palin has consistently said she is “Ready for Hillary” and not in the way the former Secretary of State and world class criminal thinks!

Which brings us to a new mailer from SarahPAC that is making the rounds on Twitter. The letter is titled “I’m ready for Hillary. Are you? A second header proclaims “The First Shot: Clinton vs Palin” Along with the letter, is a copy of the front page of the Boston Herald, dated January 25, 2015 that screams MAKE WAY FOR SARAH and proclaims: GOP Strategists: A Palin ’16 bid is no joke

These mailers are sent to folks who support SarahPAC.

Here are a couple of the tweets, one showing the letter and the newspaper tear sheet, and one with just the newspaper:

We enlarged the first photo so you can read the letter better:

Sarah vs Hillary SarahPAC Mailer

The Boston Herald article is now hidden behind a pay-wall, but our friends at Conservatives4Palin archived it. Here’s the important part:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s announcement that she’s “seriously interested” in running for president in 2016 could shake up the GOP field, say strategists, who point to the former vice presidential hopeful’s strong base, fundraising ability and star power.

You’ve got to take her seriously because she can raise a lot of money, she has a big following and she has been through a national campaign, which is important to be competitive in a presidential primary,” Republican strategist Chris Brown told the Herald. “I think she really changes the field and she has the potential to hurt a lot of candidates — especially Tea Party conservatives.”

[…]

Former Alabama GOP Chairman Marty Connors said Palin “has built a career around being underestimated.
I would immediately put her in as a top- or mid-tier candidate if she decides to run,” Connors said.
[S]he has a built-in constituency and so she wouldn’t have to raise the money that some of the other candidates would and I think she’d be an exciting candidate that a lot of people would rally around.

As to raising money, I think Haley Barbour got it right when he said of Governor Palin a few years back: “She could raise enough money to burn a wet mule!” In case you don’t speak Mississippian, that means she can raise a hell of a lot of money! But I also agree with Connors, in that she is a known quantity and has not only a huge following, but the ability to attract the news media, who will follow her every move, like the second coming of Elvis!

Governor Palin’s media partner PassCodeCreative recently created a new video for SarahPAC Catch Me If You Can which reminds us about the big stir he bus trip caused a few years back!

Governor Palin and her family drove the media nuts, because she never gave them an itinerary, saying …. rightly so, her trip was about getting out and seeing America and talking to regular Americans, rather than a publicity stunt, like Hillary’s recent Scooby Do bus tour that was a complete and total flop! Governor Palin used this video to make fun of Hillary’s failed tour! And to poke the media again!

In the C4P article we mention above, Steve Flesher links to another Boston Herald article written around the same time by Adriana Cohen that explains the GOP needs a strong Conservative woman, if they intend to defeat Hillary Clinton [or Liz Warren, for that matter]

The GOP needs women on the ticket for many reasons, not least because it steals the Democratic Party’s thunder. They want to be the “first” at breaking cultural barriers and glass ceilings. With Hillary Clinton expected to be their front-runner in 2016, they’ll use her gender as a tactic to gin up support from their base — especially female voters.
I can already see Emily’s List pushing out emails nationwide saying, “Let’s make history by electing the first female president of the United States.”

Cohen goes on to say this about Hillary [and how Sarah is better]: [emphasis mine]

If you’re a female leader on the Democratic ticket, you’re a “hero” regardless of how many times you put your foot in your mouth, embarrass yourself or worse.

We haven’t forgotten Hillary Clinton saying that we should empathize with our enemies or that businesses and corporations don’t really create jobs. Both absurd statements that should disqualify any candidate — male or female — from any race, never mind the top slot.

But if you’re a female conservative? Watch out! Liberals will pounce and do everything they can to marginalize a conservative woman who runs for office no matter how educated, or talented, or accomplished she is. Liberals only “tolerate” others if they agree with them and follow their agenda.

[…]

The reality is Sarah Palin draws huge crowds at speaking engagements, has millions of social media followers and just as many supporters across the nation.

Hillary Clinton has been giving speeches to half-filled rooms.

Look, we have absolutely no idea what Governor Palin is going to do, but after she considered a 2012 run, for a long, long time, and then didn’t, causing a lot of disappointment among supporters, it’s hard to fathom she would do that again, especially as aggressive as this latest mailer is.

One of our longtime readers, Joy, made an interesting point a few days ago. If you remember, on September 3, 2011 Governor Palin made a powerful speech, to a massive crowd in Indianola, Iowa, which our Stacy Drake recorded.

While Governor Palin spoke of Liberty and Freedom, the main focus was crony capitalism.

Governor Palin has been going after in corruption in government for over 20 years, ever since her earliest days as the junior member of the Wasilla city council! She famously took down the entire Republican Party machine, in Alaska, which rivaled Chicago, and it’s thug politics, in it’s depths of corruption!

Just a few months after Governor Palin’s well received speech, Peter Schweizer’s brand new book: Throw Them All Out: How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich Off Insider Stock Tips, Land Deals, and Cronyism That Would Send the Rest of Us to Prison was released.

The book caused a massive stir, as well as top billing on 60 Minutes. Congress passed a law [though later it was quietly neutered] banning lawmakers from insider trading. Both former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi [D-California] and current Speaker John Boehner [R-Ohio] have made tens of millions of dollars using secret insider information.

Joy noted that Peter’s new book: Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich which has caused the Clinton’s to loose their minds and their friends in the media a lot of sleepless nights trying to figure out how to protect Hill and Bill, just happens to be coming out at a time Governor Palin has been relentlessly hammering Hillary!

Peter’s new book, which is set for release May 5, 2015 is already a Number One Best Seller at Amazon!

I’m not sure Joy is off base here at all.

Most people know this, but Peter Schweizer served as Governor Palin’s foreign policy adviser after she left office and created SarahPAC. Peter literally wrote the books [plural] on President Ronald Reagan’s foreign policy, which Governor Palin had adopted as the basis for her own, adding new lessons learned.

What is interesting to me, is after serving under Palin, Peter has written exclusively about corruption in government. Clinton Cash will be his third Best Seller in a row on the subject.

Again, we have no idea what Governor Palin is up, but we have it from sources close to the family that her decision not to run in 2012 came down to strong opposition from her mother and her oldest son, Track.

That said, Governor Palin posted this on Facebook January 22, three days before the Boston Herald article was published:

Ha! Believe it or not I received this from… my mom!“:

Sarah Palin Hitchhiking

Take from that what you will!

Is it too early to say Palin-Cruz 2016?!? [or Palin-Jindal]

What exactly is “That woman” thinking about?

Is “America’s News Anchor” Rooting for A First Hispanic Republican President?

ramos cruz rubio

By Isabel Matos

No thanks, Jorge!!

We already have La Raza praising 11 House Republicans for their efforts, and Rep. Gutierrez making appearances with them. Although his comments reflect reality accurately, the title of this article should be: Ramos Resents Republican Presidential Hopefuls Rubio, Cruz who happen to be from Cuban Descent.

Breitbart reported: Speaking at Harvard’s Institute of Politics on Tuesday evening, Ramos said that “for the first time in history, there are two Hispanic candidates running for president.” “Regardless of the criticism Republicans receive from the mainstream press, “Republicans have been doing something right that they have two Hispanic candidates. And the Democrats don’t have a single Hispanic candidate for this election”.

He mentioned that if Cruz or Rubio is on the top of the 2016 ticket, it will be very interesting to see if Hispanic Democrats vote for a Latino candidate. Ramos noted that “the majority of Latinos vote for Democrats” and the “majority of Latinos are of Mexican origin” while Rubio and Cruz are both of Cuban descent. He said Latino voters will be faced with the question about whether they should vote for a Latino candidate just because he is Hispanic.

ramos harvard oh joy

Ramos is correct: the mainstream press is against Republicans; that includes, of course, his own. Let’s get out of the way the difference between the terms Hispanic and Latino for clarity’s sake, since they are used interchangeably often. Hispanics are from Spain or any of the Spanish speaking countries in Latin America. “Latino” is used as an abbreviated form of “Latino-Americano” (Latin-American), or someone coming from Latin America. Some statistics, too:

53 millionHispanics are the second fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States after Asian Americans. Since 1970, the Latino [should be Hispanic not Latino to avoid confusion] population has increased sixfold, from 9.6 million to 53 million as of 1/1/2012. Its is projected that its share of the U.S. population currently at 17% is expected to reach 29% or to 119 million by 2060, according to the latest projections from the U.S. Census Bureau (2014). This figure includes 38 million Hispanophone Americans, making the US home to the largest community of Spanish speakers outside of Mexico, surpassing Argentina, Colombia, and Spain within the last decade.

Now we get to the point (al punto) of this article: shifting the focus away from what we know about Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, to what we should know -if we didn’t already- about Ramos and Univision, since he brought all of this up:

1.  Jorge Ramos is the evening news anchor of Noticiero Univision. He was born in Mexico City 57 years ago. He first came to the United States on a one-year certificate program at UCLA Extension and has enjoyed a long career with Univision where he got a job with a work permit in an L.A. affiliate 30 years ago.

“My English was—I couldn’t even understand myself.”

Ramos hosts “Al Punto” a successful political Sunday talk show on Univision. He is part of digital magazine “Fusion” which targets a younger more liberal audience, covering topics he admits could never be aired on Univision. Ramos is very good at what he does; but his influence does not speak for all Hispanics.

Al_Punto_Hero_750x39011

“I went on Jon Stewart the other day and I told him,

‘I’m an immigrant; I need a lot of jobs!

CITIZENSHIP

Ramos constantly refers to himself as an immigrant. Maybe he does it for symbolic reasons. I was curious, so I did a little research and found this:

Al Punto“debuted on Univision on September 9, 2007, the same day as the first Spanish language U.S. Presidential Debate hosted by Univision.

From the transcript: UNIVISION NETWORK DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE PARTICIPANTS: SENATOR HILLARY CLINTON (D-NY); SENATOR CHRISTOPHER DODD (D-CT); FORMER SENATOR JOHN EDWARDS (DSC); FORMER SENATOR MIKE GRAVEL (D-AK); REPRESENTATIVE DENNIS KUCINICH (D-OH); SENATOR BARACK OBAMA (D-IL); AND GOVERNOR BILL RICHARDSON (D-NM)
MODERATORS: JORGE RAMOS AND MARIA ELENA SALINAS, UNIVISION NETWORK ANCHORS LOCATION: UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI, MIAMI, FLORIDA TIME: 7:04 PM EDT DATE: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 2007

Three months later on December 9th, 2007, Univision hosted another forum where anchors, Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas, moderated the first U.S. Republican presidential debate in Spanish. Destino 2008 was held againg at the University of Miami, in Coral Gables, Florida. In February of 2008, Jorge Ramos asked questions to U.S. presidential candidates at the CNN Democratic debate at the University of Texas at Austin, in Austin, Texas:

CNN, Univision and the Texas Democratic Party jointly hosted a debate between Obama and Clinton on February 21 at 7:00 CST on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. The debate was rebroadcast at 10:30 in Spanish. Questions focused heavily on illegal immigration and the economy, among other issues.

But Ramos revealed t.h.i.s. in an Interview on CSPAN on July 11 2010:

Excerpt: Brian Lamb: Why did you become an American citizen and what year did you do it?

Jorge Ramos: I did it in 2008. For me it was very important to participate fully in this country. It’s truly a wonderful country and my fight is that this country would treat other immigrants like me the same way they treated the millions of immigrants who came after me. It’s truly amazing, who could have thought that when John F. Kennedy was writing his book “A Nation of Immigrants,” it was 1958, I was born exactly that year and with those wonderful ideas and of course he was killed in ’63, but in ’65 with the immigration act of 1965 everything changed and because of that, because John F. Kennedy and because of “A Nation of Immigrants” I’m in this country, so I wanted to participate fully. I was very concerned about the war, I was concerned about my kids. Paola who’s 23 right now and Nicolas who’s 12, they were born here in this country and I wanted to – I wanted to be fully part of the United States. This has been a wonderful, generous, and magnificent country for me and I wanted to be part of it. 

It is not clear whether he became a citizen before or after he was allowed to ask questions of the U.S. presidential candidates at the CNN debate in February, 2008, as the views expressed above differ from his views in 2004 where he mentions he is not a U.S. citizen, despite his long years here, “in case I want to return to Mexico to run for office.” [ The interview on CSPAN is long but worth a listen)

That means he was not a citizen in 2007 which raises a lot of questions. Is he sincere or just a hypocrite? It sure seems arrogant to point the finger at U.S. citizens who want their laws enforced, when he may have become a citizen for expediency. [And he has chutzpah to moderate debates if he’s not one!]

RECOGNITION AND AWARDS

Ramos has received the Maria Moors Cabot award from the University of Columbia, he won 8 Emmy awards for excellence in journalism (including the first ever presented by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to honor leaders of Spanish Language Television). In 2002 he was honored with the ‘Ruben Salazar’ award by the National Council of La Raza for his positive portrayal of Latinos. In 2008 The Commonwealth Club of California recognized him with the Distinguished Citizen Award for being one of the outstanding individuals who embody the American Dream as an immigrant to the United States. Biography

He has said he can do what ever he damn well pleases (“lo que se me pegue la gana”) on his network, Univision. He’s like a pied piper for La Raza, and lord of a land within the land of plenty (ours) whose authority he defies and wants toppled. For that he is rewarded worldwide. Surprise. When questioning others he is sarcastic about the intentions of the undocumented’s: Do you (really) think we want to make the United States an extension of Mexico or claim it as part of our territory? That is Senor Ramos: America’s News Anchor. He’s not just a journalist. He takes his activism seriously. What’s not love if you’re a racist lib?

Jorge-Ramos-Rio-Grandejpg

Christiane Amanpour is mesmerized he swam in the Rio Grande.

[That picture reminds me of Putin’s pictures on a horse.] In her commentary for TIME where he made the cover of 2015’s 100 Most Influential People, she writes:

Ramos wrangles with President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner; he swims the Rio Grande; he says he asks every question as if it’s his last, determined to get an answer or go down trying. What happened to immigration reform? He knows he has a voice and is not afraid to use it. He shouts from every rooftop that Hispanic rights are human rights.

After decades on the cutting edge of the news agenda, Jorge Ramos, who grew up in Mexico, is waging the campaign of a lifetime, which is also a defining issue for America, the country he calls home.

If you haven’t gotten sick yet (I am), there’s more. Yes Ramos is cocky and full of himself, but I would be dishonest intellectually to deny or not admire the passion he has for what he does. In his speech to an audience of leaders he calls rebels [I actually like that term], he toasts the Dreamers, which he calls his real heroes.

“Because Congress has done nothing for a decade, I salute them for taking matters into their own hands and changing American immigration policy.”

The most influential leader of 2015 warns: You do not want to be their enemy, because they will get in your face. They are really American citizens, but don’t have a paper to prove it. He makes a reminder and gives a stern word of caution to politicians and presidential candidates who are thinking of deporting anyone: 

“Latinos will decide the next election and not vote for any candidate who wants to deport their father, their mother, your friends or your neighbors.” 

When I say I like the word rebel, I mean it in a good way (for our cause). And when I say I “admire” his passion, I am really expressing it in the same spirit he pointed out that the Republican Party is doing something right because two Hispanics are running for president. What I really wish is for his ego and immigration views to blast him into oblivion. Maybe in the end he will be seen for what he is: an elitist out for his career like the rest of them! Ramos says he hopes to grow his clout beyond the Latino community with “Fusion“:

“What I really like is that for the first time, I don’t need translation,” he says. “And without translation, there’s an immediate impact. And definitely the language of power is English.” [How romantic sarc>].

It is ironic given that Ramos does not believe that English should be the official language of this country. And also interesting to point out that in an article from a week ago, Fusion heralded Lindsey Graham as “the one GOP candidate who’s actually defending immigration reform”. Now on to Ramos’s show and network..

VIEWERSHIP AND RATINGS

2.  Univision is the largest network aimed at Hispanics in the U.S. It has one of the largest audience of Spanish-language television viewers in the world, according to Nielsen Media Research. NBC’s Telemundo is second. Both have studios, operate and produce in Miami but headquarters are in New York. In recent years, the network has reached viewership parity with the U.S.’s five major English language television networks; it often places a strong fifth, outranking The CW, with some fourth-place weekly placings; as of 2012, even first place rankings for individual programs over all five English networks, attributed to telenovelas. Who knew? So I did a little search on Sunday talk shows and found that although ratings vary weekly ‘Al Punto’ came in 4th or 5th overall and was mentioned even when its ratings were unavailable. I also looked for ratings comparing all five networks for evening news (cable/non cable, English/Spanish) but only found each one promoting its best week or month.

Noticiero Univision evening news reported in February 2012 its rank as:

No. 1 broadcast evening news program with twice as many viewers as the combined audience of “ABC World News Tonight,” “CBS Evening News” and “NBC Nightly News” among Adults 18-34 (195,000 vs. 86,000), Adults 18-49 (433,000 vs. 202,000) and Adults 25-54 (416,000 vs. 246,000). SOURCE Among Bilingual Hispanic Viewers: “Noticiero Univision” delivered 55% more Viewers 2+ than the combined audience of ABC, CBS and NBC’s evening newscasts (930,000 vs. 601,000). Source: The Nielsen Company.

eve news evenews JR_MES_NewSet_Desk_sm

Fox News (Univision’s competitor -my assumption not theirs- based on ratings I used) ranked as follows early in 2012:

In Primetime for January 2012, FNC averaged 1,942,000 viewers, an increase of 78% since January 2002 when the network averaged 1,091,000. In fact, the Primetime ratings FNC achieved in 2002 after becoming number one eclipse what CNN and MSNBC are currently averaging today in 2012 (841,000 and 801,000 viewers respectively).  Additionally, FNC’s current 2012-to-date Primetime average beat CNN and MSNBC combined. Fox News’s median age is 65+ but no figures reflect that age group. Viewers 25-54 have fallen but overall prime time audience went up to 2.02 in 2012 from 1.89 million in 2009. The O’Reilly Factor was the top show for Fox (and cable news as a whole), averaging 2.361M total viewers and 365K in the demo at 8 p.m. The Kelly File, which has been beating Bill O’Reilly’s show in the 9 p.m. slot on occasion, came in second overall, averaging 1.998M total viewers and 332K total.

SUNDAY TALK SHOWS

In February 2012, Univision, its Sunday morning public affairs program:

Al Punto” delivered two times more Adults 18-49 (186,000 vs. 91,000) than the combined audience of the English-language broadcast programs (ABC’s “This Week,” CBS’“Face The Nation,” NBC “Meet The Press” and “FOX News Sunday.”)

Rick Kissell Senior Editor of “Fox News Sunday” reported its telecast on July 28, 2014 in the DC market:

averaged 107,000 viewers on WTTG-5 — the second largest audience ever in the nation’s capital, behind only the 132,000 when Chris Wallace interviewed Sarah Palin in 2010 (Interview parts 1, 23 below)

first sunday appearance

“Fox News Sundays” finished well ahead of NBC’s “Meet the Press” on WRC-4 (73,000), ABC’s “This Week” on WJLA-7 (65,000), CBS’ “Face the Nation” on WUSA-9 (59,000) and Univision’s “Al Punto” on WFDC-14 (57,000). It also led in households (64,000 to 53,000 for “Meet the Press”). In key news demo of adults 25-54, it led in D.C. with 41,000, followed by “This Week” (36,000), “Meet the Press” (33,000), “Al Punto” (32,000) and “Face the Nation” (29,000).

Nick Massella reported NBC’s Ratings in the DC Market  in October , 2014 as follows:

“Meet” secured 65,000 total viewers followed by “FOX News Sunday” with 40,000 in the DC market. In terms of households, NBC also led with 55,000 followed by FOX with 34,000. In the A25-54 demo, FOX took first with 12,000 viewers followed by NBC with 9,000, CBS’s “Face the Nation” with 4,000, and ABC’s “This Week” considered a scratch. * FishbowlDC did not have access to ratings for Univision’s “Al Punto.”

Bob Schieffer’s “Face the Nation”‘s report included “Al Punto” in their 2014 article: “Meet the Press Struggles in the Ratings …” :

“Face the Nation,” hosted by Bob Schieffer, the grandfatherly 77-year-old newsman, not only attracts the largest overall audience (a weekly average of 3.35 million during the first three months of 2014, 5 percent more than “This Week,” 8 percent more than “MTP” and 61 percent more than “Fox News Sunday”) but the largest audience among the coveted 25-to-54 set, too.

Collectively, about 9.6 million people watched the three networks each week during the first three months of this year, about the same number that watched Russert in 2005. This doesn’t count the audience for innumerable Sunday-morning competitors, from Fox News Sunday (hosted by former “Meet the Press” moderator Chris Wallace) to “Al Punto” on Univision.  (2015 cable news ratings here)

EXACTLY.

Many politicians come to kiss Ramos’s hand (I had to steal that) on “Al Punto”. It is embarrassing to witness, which is why I translated this visit where Rep. Diaz-Balart is justifying our party’s actions to Ramos, revealing John Boehner’s intentions on amnesty. It is cordial but contentious as always (it gets old but he is tireless). He grills the Republican, slaps him around, throws in a racist accusation or two and dangles the 11 million-potential-voter-carrot they can’t ignore. Gutierrez, of course, does not get the same treatment. The clip is a gem, proving the GOPe does not want to answer to us. If Republicans want to really prove how compassionate they are, they would take a hard look at and explain how they can justify amnesty when our families and children will be hurt by it. Ramos said this about the next election and Republicans:

1) It is now accepted fact that Hispanic voters were integral to delivering Barack Obama’s presidency, and the road to D.C. has been permanently rerouted.

2) An immigration bill—which Ramos called “a prerequisite” for Latinos to even consider voting Republican—passed the Democratic Senate, but there is close to no hope in the Republican-­controlled House, at least at present. “They don’t get it,” he says. Ramos’s theory is that the Republican nominee in 2016 will simply say of the do-nothing Congress, “They were wrong,” and then offer an immigration proposal of his own. May 5, 2014 New York Magazine.

What do we call it.. a threat? blackmail? ultimatum? shakedown or all of the above? There are so many appearances to choose from, but in every interview, Ramos must come across as the one who cares more than our side which is less passionate and caring about the plight of illegals. If you disagree with any of the points he makes, you have to defend not being anti-immigrant or anti-Hispanic. Marco Rubio’s views are far from being anti-immigrant. (We hate them!) He has made it clear that immigration reform is inevitable, that he is against deportations and will not disrupt DACA (only legislation that is okay before securing the border according to Conant his adviser) but that’s not enough for the true extremists. Cruz is for a bipartisan solution to Immigration reform, which leaves me feeling a little queasy. Does he mean DC-type bipartisanship or a unanimous decision and consensus where D’s and R’s are representing the American people. In any case it is all futile effort because Ramos doesn’t care about them, the law or the fact that the GOPe is shortchanging us on immigration. He does extract their true colors, though, in the process.

Dear Jorge (hor-hey),

Rubio is for Amnesty, DACA and Dreamers!

We hate that as much as you resent it. Why don’t you support  him?

Bilingual and legal

Ingraham knows why they flock to Ramos: to try to make inroads into the Hispanic vote, but asks what the difference between him and Graham is. [Why don’t you ask Jorge, Laura?!]

We have two Hispanics running for president because they ran on a strong message which generated grassroots excitement, and which translated into votes. One lied about it, the other a little more trustworthy but it remains to be seen. Satisfaction or dissatisfaction with these presidential hopefuls should have nothing to do with their ethnicity, but character. The truth is, Ramos wishes the hero of this episode in history was a Hispanic Democrat, not a Hispanic Republican, and a Mexican, not a Cuban-American. At the end of this clip he pleads with Bill Richardson to run in 2016. Below is an example of this bias. It is short, in Spanish with English subtitles:

GOTCHA!

Ramos reminds Rubio above that millions of “Hispanics” want change (referring to millions of Mexican illegals, of course). Like all advocates for amnesty, (see Linda Vega) ‘undocumented’ is key. Rubio’s reply reflects what many in the community I live in believe: that immigration is a touchy, sensitive matter, a humanitarian, not political issue. (The same is probably true in other states where you don’t want to offend people you already know.) No matter what he says, though, he will be the bad guy. Univision will never cover Benghazi, Obama’s scandals or news that is not relevant to “Hispanics” (one particular sector..) Its bias (subtle or not) affects millions of bilinguals (55% prefer Noticiero Unvision to our new show), and what happens at home here and with neighbors is microcosmic of what happened before fair and balanced came around, or social media now. There are no competitors to challenge or enlighten viewers on other points of view. Certainly politicians can’t do so in just one sitting.

Rubio’s answer was cut off in the sub-titled clip, so I’m providing what was said in the full interview in Spanish to illustrate Ramos’s disdain for Rubio:

  • 1 Family is not off the table. When Rubio was 16 his brother-in-law was sentenced to 25 years for drug trafficking (He was released in 2000 for good behavior). Rubio explains in his book American Son that it was a very difficult time for the family and scolds Ramos and Univision for making it the story front and center on the news when it had nothing to with him. It was just to smear Rubio. Ramos (playing dumb) insisted if he was going to run as VP in 2012 this information should be known. Rubio says they could have called him, not his sister, and that it was public record anyway; he called it a black eye for the network, but Ramos doesn’t stop there. He asks Rubio if he got money from his brother-in-law or was influenced in any way by him during his campaign. In no way, Rubio replied.
  • 2 Ramos objects to ENGLISH as the official language of this country. If you speak it at home, he says, why should it be official? He says millions of voters could be affected by the police stopping or discriminating against anyone with an accent in Spanish. There are other negative consequences, he says, like being fired from jobs for speaking Spanish. It is discriminatory. Rubio: No one gets stopped for having an accent. In Florida English is the official language. It doesn’t stop you from speaking Spanish at home.
  • 3 You’re Anti-Immigrant for not agreeing with me 100%. Ramos points to books on Rubio’s bookcase: He says Bush, Reagan, even McCain, a presidential candidate, were all for the legalization of illegals. Why aren’t you like them? Rubio: I am my own person and I base my views on what is happening in the country today. Ramos: People approach me saying he [Rubio] “does not defend us”. He says they want to see Rubio come out and defend them, the undocumented. Rubio: That’s not true. I defend.. Ramos: You could be president one day and change that. Rubio: Unfortunately, a lot of people make promises knowing they cannot keep. I say what I see can be done. Ramos: President Obama’s campaign manager told Univision it would be an insult to the Hispanic immigrant community if you [Republicans] had won the election in 2012 because your position is anti-Hispanic. Mitt Romney, for example, was for self-deportation. Rubio: Self-deportation means they made a decision to go back as a consequence of things getting difficult in Obama’s economy. I don’t know of anyone having positions that are ant-immigrant or anti-Hispanic. RAMOS: The perception is, you could be. RUBIO: Many on the left would say that. RAMOS: You could be powerful as the first Hispanic President of the U.S. or most powerful Hispanic, but your positions are 1) You are for the Arizona Law which persecutes immigrants, 2) you are against the Dream Act, and 3) you want English to be the official language. RUBIO: 1) The Arizona law is not meant for the entire nation but I support it because states have rights which I respect. 2) I do want to help the undocumented kids here and 3) English should be the official language like it is in Florida. 

If you think I’m defending Rubio you’ve missed the point of this entire article.

Rubio has deserved all he got because of 2013. Like millions, I was angry he betrayed good Tea Party conservatives who voted for him thinking he was in their corner. He should have known better than to mess with immigration extremists, too. If there was any lesson to be learned, it is to speak clearly. I will never forget or condone his actions; however, SarahPac has urged us to support Cruz, Paul and Rubio from attacks from the left.  She is right. And Ramos and Univision are part of those attacks.

ted rand and marco

RAMOS CALLS TED CRUZ AND HIS DAD DREAMERS

First, if Ramos had a one-year certificate to be in the United States because of Mexican censorship. His permit to work here must have had an expiration date. I don’t really care at this point if he overstayed a visa or not. Let’s assume he did every legally. It just makes me wonder why someone would be so adamantly AGAINST immigration law enforcement if he wasn’t illegal himself.

As a Cuban-American, I can say Ramos and those who lead “the” march to illegality resent our legality. He can’t help it. Ramos points out to Rubio that his grandfather and to Ted Cruz that his father were just like dreamers, simply asking for documentation. In Rubio’s case, it could not be compared because there was no law that existed that his grandfather was breaking in the first place. And Ted Cruz fends off the attack by explicitly saying his father was legal. Ramos ignores both explanations.

Even though he grilled Obama a while ago for not keeping his promise, Ramos says in this interview with pinhead OReilly: that Obama “evolved” on the legality of immigration action. Puleez. Obama said repeatedly he didn’t have the legal power to pass it, but Ramos and other activists are joyful that it was, and are emboldened by the move. They are trying not to sound ungrateful, but can’t hold back as this is just the start. They want all illegals here from every country amnestied, not just theirs. It will never end. By the way, Ramos says in English at the 3:33 (it’s such a bad habit!) that he is an immigrant.
I am being long-winded about this, but I am passionate about the subject. I recommend the tape below which illustrates what arguments we can use against amnesty. It is not by a politician but an anti-amnesty activist with no strings attached. He reminds me of Heather MacDonald: polite, smart and reasonable.In English:

So why should we care about what Ramos thinks? Most Americans are against it! Because…

Ramos may turn out to be one of the most influential journalists going into the 2016 presidential election.

That is scary. And I’m Hispanic! With much less on his resume he moderated at least three presidential debates. I’m happy to report, though, that “sour grapes” Ramos and his network have pounced on the fact that Univision was excluded from the Republican presidential debates. FYI, Democratic pollster Fernand Amandi said:

The GOP needs Univision more than Univision needs the GOP,”

“For a party looking to be competitive nationally again, they can’t risk alienating the premier outlet that caters to the fastest-growing part of the electorate.”

Univision spokesperson Jose Zamora said,

“There is a very simple political reality—Hispanics will decide the 2016 Presidential election. No one can match Univision’s reach and ability to inform, provide access and empower Hispanic America. Anyone who wants to reach and engage Hispanics will have to do it through Univision..

Univision lead anchor Jorge Ramos said that both parties:

“have to make sure that their debates don’t look like the 2015 Oscar nominations,” referring to the lack of diversity among the Academy’s nominees.

gop debate

THE DEBATES

RNC’s schedule is not much more encouraging as none of the anchors representing the networks are RAMOS in the reverse.

Our news outlets are at fault for not doing their job where amnesty is concerned. Millions complain about it, but none in power have had the will, drive or support to do anything about it consistently. Sarah Palin called for impeachment last year, but it fell on deaf ears across DC.  It would be great if we had a powerful news anchor 24/7 defending America’s sovereignty like our nemesis on Univision does to violate it. What a dream to hear candidates answer to us accepting five non-negotiable’s in this war against amnesty:

  • Yes, English is our official language.
  • A pathway to citizenship really means amnesty.
  • I will not support Obama’s executive actions, DACA or DAPA.
  • Illegals are not ‘undocumented’ and dreamers are not the same as legal immigrants seeking documentation.
  • We will spend time debating deportation for lawbreakers for not just criminals, instead of how to make citizenship happen.
  • Americans have the right to secure their border first, and not be accused of being anti-immigrant or anti-Hispanic because of it.
  • Democrats are better at this, so we have to fight together to beat them on this and appeal to legal citizens and American voters affected by it.

Ingraham’s stance on amnesty has been effective in some races. She could be a good anchor, but her negatives would be she is unreliable politically: 1) she said she wasn’t going to get into presidential politics only state and local, but within 24 hours she was commenting on the national race, and 2) she is too quick and eager to back establishment candidates when push comes to shove. Chris McDaniel could be thrown into the mix just to spook the Rinos. Stuart Varney also came to mind (but I’m not sure what his stance on immigration is). We should start thinking about this and demand that the RNC providing moderators who will ask and demand clear answers, putting Priebus, our quasi-conservative media and any GOPe on notice that anyone who is for amnesty but wants to appear as they are not must take a hike!

Sarah Palin electrified millions when she dismissed Washington reporters as elitists in her VP acceptance speech, something we had never heard anyone say in politics. It was just one of the many moments that were part of that electrifying night. Who can forget those 25 seconds (:45 – 1:11)? (Schieffer’s reaction was priceless):

One month later Palin made the point to talk directly to the American without the filter of the media. We loved it. And still do!

Eight years later she is still talking to not at us, like the nation’s CEO, almost daily on her own online channel. Just today she addressed illegal immigration (again):

sarah on immigration

My advice to candidates:

TALK TO US DIRECTLY!

We cannot have a flippant attitude about immigration. It has to be done with a sense of urgency which the above presidential hopeful has. We cannot accept candidates wanting or trying to be the Candy Man to pushy Dreamers and/or innocent children who’ve been brainwashed from day one that it’s okay to break the law. Laws are our contract between government and its people and in their quest for power,

our lawmakers have become lawbreakers in helping push this agenda.

Ramos may be one of the Most Influential Latino Leaders in the world, but he is helping millions break our laws. You will get no apology from me for being for deportations, defending English as our official language, or militarizing the border. He says he never mentions his views on the evening news but Ramos gives his opinion everywhere else. When he asks if Mexicans would vote for a candidate just because they spoke Spanish, it is a legitimate question. If we had a black Republican candidate, would blacks turn out the vote for him? Not necessarily. In that regard Rubio and Cruz are wise not to run as Hispanics but on message, and that is what we vet them on, but I’m still calling Ramos out on his arrogance, racism and b.s. (making such a fuss over ethnicity) and sending this clear note to our own:

Dear Republican candidates,

We are the ones you should worry about. If you pander for illegal votes, you will lose our trust and our vote.

Your Constituents

No matter what intentions you as Republicans may have, or what your plans to reform immigration are, the majority of Latinos and/or Hispanics (camouflage for Mexican) do not and never really will sympathize with Republicans (like Ramos suggests).  So why waste time on the 11 million illegal ‘birds in the bush’, when we have about 40 million legals in the hand willing to sacrifice for and abide by this country’s laws. We should be attracting Hispanics for the right reasons, not background.

The left knows no bounds on personal attacks, respect for laws or life, so it is up to us to continue pushing backing and to build an apparatus that will challenge the invasion (yes, it is an invasion and no, we’re not racists for saying so.) Tenacity and drive are key. We can start by reacting with caution to stories coming from this Spanish media because it is just like our liberal media.  We have to act like Team R (relentless) vs. Team D (derelicts), regardless of party affiliation. For our sovereignty.

It remains to be seen whether Republicans will win in 2016 by courting the illegal vote. It did not help Reagan (or Americans) for him to pass amnesty in the long run. Democrats ended up not securing the border like they had promised in exchange for the 3 million amnestied. That’s what you get when you deal with Democrats.

Is Rubio a racist? No.

Is he godless? No.

Has he always wanted to pass immigration reform? Yes.

Is it a screwed up political agenda? Yes.

Is Jorge Ramos all of the above? Yes.

But immigration reform is no inevitable. We just have to fight relentlessly against it. Ramos is not just a journalist and he is not just a liberal. He represents the sleeping giant that is the future of American politics. That future is NOW.

And the power is OURS to relinquish.

Sarah Palin: Human-Caused Global Warming? What a racket!

climate-disruption

By Gary P Jackson

Yesterday was “Earth Day” and [not coincidentally] Communist terror leader Vladimir Lenin’s birthday. We spent the day talking about the scam of “global warming” and quoting actual conservationists and climate experts, who debunk the notion and rightly understand the “climate change” movement has more to with their hero, birthday boy Lenin, and his insane philosophy, than actual science.

There was another birthday this week. A one we are more than happy to celebrate: Trig Palin’s! [4/21] Governor Palin took to Facebook to post some photos of her son enjoying the day [and the fresh snow!] as well as to blast the fascist thugs who are pushing the global warming scam:

Celebrating the boys’ birthdays – in new snow on 4/20! Trig takes another lap on his restored ’88 Élan (thank you, Garret and Ellie!) while enjoying this “climate change” (also known as “seasons“).

100% Human-Caused Global Warming? What a racket. A money-making, politically-driven tool that ignores history to enable control freaks’ mandates that fundamentally transform your lifestyle and stall American progress.

Well, happy birthday, sons; may you and your generation never cave to Al Gore and his liberal idiotic ilk as elitists pretend to play God, claiming they control Mother Nature. They can’t predict this afternoon’s weather but foolishly demand trust in their supernatural power to predict it 5000 years from now. Stay strong, boys! We need men like you to un-do what’s been done to our country under liberal control. Meanwhile, enjoy the snow!

– Sarah Palin

Republican Party “Leadership”: More Useless Than Tits on a Boar Hog

Boehner And McConnell Address The Media At The Capitol

Pictured Above: Two of the most useless things known to man

By Gary P Jackson

Consider the much maligned male hog. A very useful animal whose inclusion of mammalian glands has been the subject of ridicule, and Southern slang, for generations. It’s become accepted fact that nothing on earth is more useless than “tits on a boar hog.” Friends, I’m hear to tell you, that after generations of learned discussions and scientific study, we have, in fact, found something that is not only more useless than said mammary glands on a male pig [generally considered them most useless things on earth] but to also dispel the notion that “tits on a boar hog” are, in fact, useless in any way.

First lets talk about pigs, then males, period [all of which are endowed with mammary glands]

Far from useless, pig farmers actually rely on the mammary glands of the domesticated pig to accurately predict the number of offspring that will be produced after mating said pig to a female pig. In fact, the number of teats on a male hog is said to be THE most important thing in hog production. The more teats the better! You see, it’s a very accurate predictor of how many babies will be produced after a mating. 14 seems to be the minimum number of teats desired, and it’s a 1:1 ratio of teats on the male hog to babies produced. [14 teats = 14 little piglets!] In fact the only useless males hogs, to breeders anyhow, are the ones with fewer than 14! Again, the more the merrier!

But lets consider the male mammal in general. Why would a guy need a mammary gland and what we are really talking about?: Nipples. Some would say “ appearance ,” which is true enough, but the real answer is timing.

According to scientists, in the mother’s womb all babies start out as female, and minus the male chromosomes, things stay that way. But it’s even simpler than that. You see, it’s a matter of timing. After the embryo is fertilized, and production on the baby is started, it takes a bit of time for all things to come together and determine what sex the baby will be. Meanwhile, the baby’s body, or “outer shell” if you will, is already developing, out of necessity. It’s simply easier for a baby, in the early stages of production, to be “fitted” in a manner which could accommodate a male or female, thus nipples on the male. There are other, more graphic similarities in early production, but you can go read a book to learn that!

BTW, automobile manufacturers use the same sort of production techniques!

Many autos, especially those with numerous options, are built to accommodate any and all varieties of a certain model, using block-off plates or having possibly unused brackets, as it’s cheaper and more efficient to build a car that can accommodate any option, from the outset, rather than having to add various brackets or have different fascias and such, for different models. Note this applies to less expensive models more than high-end luxo-barges.

Nowhere in automotive manufacturing is this seen than on your dashboard. Especially if you buy economy models that offer an upscale version. If you really cheaped-out and bought the “econo-maxx” version of whatever soul sucking appliance that sits in your driveway, you’ll find numerous block-off plates on your dashboard, or areas that can be punched-out to install more accessories. These serve two important functions, beyond not forcing the manufacturer to create numerous dashboards for each car line, thus making each car more expensive. These block-off plates keep you from having a bunch of holes in your dash, and serve to remind you what a cheap bastard you are!

The bottom line though is dashboards with block-off plates, like males with mammary glands, and most especially male swine, are VERY useful. Far more useful than ….

…. the Republican Party “leadership” [pictured below]

GOP clown-car

In fact, the GOP is so useless we should change the old saying “useless as tits on a boar hog” to “useless as the GOP” and do it now! In fact, while conventional wisdom says the pig and his predicament is the most useless, we can, with great confidence, say to you, absolutely NOTHING on earth is, or has ever been, more useless than the Republican Party “leadership.”

This isn’t a new thing, by any stretch of the imagination, and there isn’t enough bandwidth in all of computerdom to list the various ways the GOP “ leadership ” is completely useless, but here are some highlights [lowlights, actually] of GOP uselessness.

One only has to look to the 2014 elections, and it’s aftermath, to see what a complete failure the GOP “leadership,” and it’s consultant class, is.

The American people spoke loud and clear in 2014! Not only did the tell the GOP they wanted them to fight Obama and his vile Anti-American democrats tooth and nail, giving them a historic majority in Congress, they also gave Republicans across the nation, even in deep blue states, resounding victories. For the first time in modern history Republicans control the majority of statehouses nationwide. They have controlled the majority of Governorships for some time now, with that number growing in 2014.

The American people could not have spoken more clearly.

The results of this historic majority for Republicans? Complete and total capitulation to Obama and his democrats. Absolute unconditional surrender.

Barack_Obama_and_John_Boehner_enjoying_Saint_Patricks_Day_2014

There were two HUGE things driving voters to give the GOP an overwhelming majority nationwide: ObamaCare and amnesty for illegal invaders. Every single Republican, including crapweasels John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, ran on a total 100% repeal of ObamaCare. Where are we? Nowhere. Many of these GOP clowns are now talking about keeping the “good parts” of ObamaCare, parts that, of course, do not exist. So much for serving the American people. The majority of Americans opposed ObamaCare from the start. Opposition was so strong it helped fuel the creation of the Tea Party. Opposition has only grown much stronger since. ObamaCare was “deemed passed” in the middle of the night, using an illegal parliamentary procedure, without a single Republican vote, and few if any, democrats even read the damned bill.

The GOP took the Obama regime to court, but never used the argument that “deeming” legislation passed, without an actual, lawful vote, is … in fact … illegal. This allowed the Supreme Court, thanks to Chief Justice John Roberts, to save Obama and his democrats, by simply declaring ObamaCare a tax, something Obama’s own lawyers had strenuously argued it was NOT.

BTW, had far left “republican” Olympia Snowe not voted for cloture, so as not to “stand in the way of history” it’s unlikely ObamaCare would even exist today. Satan, undoubtedly, has a very warm place reserved for Maine’s curse on the American people, when she finally leaves for the after-life.

So, as much as we blame Obama and his viciously Anti-American democrats, it was the actions of a beloved member of the Republican Establishment who is actually responsible for ObamaCare. Far more useless to Liberty and Freedom than tits on a boar hog!

BTW, if you aren’t up on ancient GOP history, when the socialists under FDR created Social Security, a good idea in theory, but fatally flawed in execution, the democrats again argued it wasn’t a tax, only to see the High Court not only proclaim it a tax, but contend it was a tax that could go into the general fund, and NOT in some sort of “lock box” only to be used for Social Security contributions and distributions. This in fact, turned Social Security, a noble idea as far as it goes, into the greatest Ponzi Scheme ever created.

Before you start the name calling, consider this:

In 1940, when benefits were low, and most people didn’t live very long after retiring, there were 42 workers paying into Social Security for every one retiree drawing benefits. By 1960, there were only 4.9 workers paying in, for every retiree taking out.

Houston, we have a problem!

As of 2012, there were no more than 2.8 workers paying in for every one retiree taking out, all this according to the Congressional Budget Office. Oh, and unlike 1940, when people routinely died at age 65, if not a little sooner, people now routinely live beyond the age of 80.

With all of the illegal aliens that both Obama and the bought and paid for GOP “leadership” are falling over themselves to give free stuff to [without these criminal invaders having paid in a dime!] were are rapidly approaching a turning point where more people will be taking money FROM Social Security than are paying in! This will, of course, mean the collapse of the entire American economy, something democrat extremists like Saul Alinsky and professors Cloward and Piven theorized would end the United States as founded, and lead to a new “ Utopian ” socialist regime. Obama has been following their playbooks to the letter, while the Republican Party “leadership” sits silent and cowers in fear.

Bernie Madoff is rotting in prison, serving a 150 year sentence, for a Ponzi Scheme a hell of a lot less evil and destructive than Social Security, as created by the democrat party, and allowed to continue by the feckless Republican Party “leadership.”

Now mind you, I think the idea of social security is valid, in a modern, vibrant society, even if some CITIZENS of said society may take out more than they pay in, due to disability and so on. It’s the WAY Social Security was created that is evil, as were the outright lies the democrat party told the American people [the same template used to “sell” ObamaCare] and of course, by allowing this evil, without a fight, the GOP shares the blame.

Bernie-Madoff

This man is far less evil than the democrats who created the Social Security Ponzi Scheme, and the Republicans who failed to stop it.

Now lets look at the other top concern of The American people: The 20-40 MILLION illegal aliens [not a single SOB knows the exact number] that are in our country. The Republicans have failed the people of the United States, and themselves, in numerous ways. The most egregious misstep is allowing the democrats to frame this as a debate on immigration, and not only allowing the democrats to use the term “immigration reform” but adopting the terminology themselves.

Lets get something straight right now. The question of illegal aliens has absolutely NOTHING to do with immigration.

Illegal aliens are NOT “immigrants” in any way shape or form. They are trespassers, criminal invaders. We have laws against this invasion, many laws. Of course, no one, IN EITHER PARTY is willing to actually enforce them. They’d rather play politics on the backs of these illegals.

Now it should go without saying, that illegals ARE people, and we wouldn’t be humans if we didn’t at least feel for them, on a basic level. BUT the law is the law. We have a LONG ESTABLISHED system for LEGAL immigration, as does every civilized nation on earth. The United States in the only nation on earth, thanks to corrupt, sleaze-bag politicians in BOTH parties, that would tolerate any measurable level of illegal alien invasion, let alone the tens of millions who live freely among us, with zero repercussions.

Of course, it’s worse than that. Thanks to the Anti-American democrats and the Bought and Paid for Republican Establishment™ illegals are now a protected class, who are actually treated better than actual U.S. Citizens, most especially military veterans, as evidenced by the VA scandals. While liberal extremists in both parties cry about “those in the shadows” and call those of us who want illegals removed from our country and our borders secured “racists and “xenophobes” illegals OPENLY protest, wear Obama shirts, and scream about the “Reconquista of the United States, the “retaking” of land they claim was “stolen” from them. Something they advocate by using violence if necessary, though they are accomplishing it, with the aid of democrats, by hurting our economy, and draining our welfare dollars.

Of course, using the logic of racist Hispanic supremacy groups like La Raza [literally, The Race] that would mean Mexico needs to give IT’S land back to Spain, who THEY “stole‘ it from, and then Spain would then be forced to dig up the Aztecs, and so on! That terrorist groups like La Raza are allowed to preach this BS, is a black eye on BOTH parties who bow at these groups’ feet. Of course, Obama and his kind actively work with the Muslim Brotherhood [al Qaeda] and other terrorist groups, without Republican “leadership” protest. And don’t forget, Republicans also refuse to address New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s LONG STANDING dirty ties to Hamas terrorists, choosing to attack and ridicule those who point them out, instead.

Sadly, as much as it seems so, the democrats don’t have a monopoly when it comes to siding with evil, over the American people, or decent human beings world wide. Liberals in BOTH parties are equally evil, with liberalism, not party, being the problem. Though, it must be noted the democrats purged absolutely everyone who WASN’T a far-left extremist, long ago. If only Republican voters could muster the energy and wherewithal to purge liberals from THEIR party! [which would mean removing the entire GOP “leadership“]

Allowing democrats to call illegal aliens “immigrants“, “ undocumented workers” and other such nonsense, is only the least evil thing the GOP has done.

You see, while the democrats are on the take from Wall Street, and those hoping to steal billions of dollars from tax payers, via various “green energy” schemes, Republicans are in the pocket of groups like the United States Chamber of Commerce, who want cheap labor, and never met an illegal invader they wouldn’t embrace. Who cares about the American people whose lives have been destroyed. Which is why the Republican Party “leadership” as well as every single prospective 2016 candidate, including the newest “conservative heartthrob” Scott Walker, have supported amnesty for a decade or more.

With nearly 93 MILLION Americans out of work, Americans who WANT to work, this amnesty the dirt bags in BOTH PARTIES support is nothing less than an act of treason against the United States and her people.Those supporting amnesty, in any way, should be dealt with accordingly. Sadly, all of this boils down to crony capitalism, something the Republican Establishment excels in!

It’s NOT just jobs though. It’s the human suffering. Illegals are often victimized by those who smuggle them here, though nowadays, it’s not hard to just cross over by ones self, as absolutely NOTHING will happen to you, if you do. The slave trade THRIVES because of our open borders, and the Republican Party’s co-conspiracy with the democrats.

But it’s even worse. IMMIGRANTS are subject to health screenings, and other routine checks. Illegals though, are not. Even all of those illegal children who invaded last Summer, many of them sick with exotic diseases, were secretly moved to cities all over the country, with little or no health screening. It’s no coincidence that we are seeing an alarming rise in diseases that were once considered completely wiped out in the United States and the rest of the civilized world. Deadly diseases that have claimed AMERICAN victims [all innocent AMERICAN children] in recent months. We can all, as humans, feel for the plight of the illegal alien, but it is BEYOND evil to subject the American people to potential disease, and even death, let alone lost jobs, to score political points. And the Republican party “leadership” is guilty as hell in this.

The amnesty shills, in BOTH parties claim we can’t deport the illegals, using the notion of not only how “inhumane” it would be to send the poor illegal back home, but the logistics of it all. Of course, it’s complete bullshit! The United States has carried out mass deportations before. When President Dwight Eisenhower took office, one of his first acts was to have officials track down and start deporting illegal aliens, en masse. These illegals weren’t taken to the border and given a pat on the ass, either! Many were placed on chartered ships. Hot, nasty steam ships, that took them to the State of Veracruz, near the southern tip of Mexico. Others were placed on equally hot and rough riding buses [this was the 1950s, after-all] and taken to Central Mexico. Nearly 2 million were deported, but the truth is, as word of these long trips got back to the rest of the illegals remaining, as well as renewed enforcement of the laws against hiring illegals, and so on, most illegals chose to self-deport. There’s no reason to think a similar program to Eisenhower’s wouldn’t yield similar results.

The Republican Party “leadership” joins the democrat party in calling those who simply want the Rule of Law to prevail, “racists.” In 2012 Texas Governor Rick Perry killed his presidential aspirations by calling those opposed to amnesty “heartless” Perry, a former democrat [who became a Republican at a time democrats became persona non grata in statewide Texas politics] has a LONG history of offering incentives to illegal aliens, never mind his tough talk when running for office. Jeb Bush, the darling of the GOP Establishment, has called illegally entering the United States an “act of love” by the aliens. Screw what it does to the people of the United States.

Of course, the useless Republican party “leadership” couldn’t be more wrong about the politics of it all. More worried about their invites to DC cocktail parties, and good ink in the New York Times than the integrity of the United States, they actually believe they MUST coddle the illegal aliens in order to gain Hispanic votes. Never mind that LEGAL immigrants, no matter the race or creed, are more angry about these illegal invaders than natural born citizens! This of course, is understandable, as LEGAL immigrants jump through hoops to come to America and WANT to be Americans. History tells us these LEGAL immigrants often become the very best among us! They often understand the American Dream better than we do!

Don’t believe me? Look at the 2014 vote in Texas.

We have a huge Hispanic population in Texas. And why not? Many Mexicans fought in the Texas Revolution, and wanted Freedom from Mexico’s version of Barack Obama [Santa Anna] as much as the Anglos! Winning two elections as Governor, George W Bush had set the high water mark for getting Hispanic votes at 39% overall. Rick Perry, for all of his pandering, Dream Act giving, in-state tuition hand outs to illegals, and so on, never got anywhere near the Hispanic support Bush, who neither pandered or got particularly tough on illegals, did. Of course, Republicans don’t exactly need their support, as Texans haven’t elected a democrat to statewide office in over 20 years. Candidates for statewide office generally win by 20 point plus margins. In effect, the GOP primary IS the general election.

That said, both Greg Abbott, our new Governor, and Dan Patrick, our new Lt Governor ran on a hard core, anti-illegal platform. It didn’t hurt that Abbott is married to a beautiful Mexican woman, Cecilia, and his Mexican mother-in-law appeared in ads telling Texans how much we were going to love having Greg as our Governor! None-the-less, Abbott ran on “no quarter,” if the federal government wont do it, we WILL, stance on illegals. He got 52% of the male Hispanic vote.

Dan Patrick, for his part, promised to do everything short of boiling illegals in hot oil! [Hell, even I cringed at some of his rhetoric!] He got 56% of the male Hispanic vote, a record. And Patrick ran against a female Hispanic democrat!

So much for the Republican Party “leadership’s” notions on Hispanics.

As I said at the start, the betrayals and ineffectiveness of the Republican Party “leadership” is almost as old as the Grand Old Party itself.

Democrats stand together, no matter what! Serial adulterers [Bill Clinton, every male Kennedy, etc] are heroes of the party. Want to get drunk, run your car off a bridge, and let your secretary/mistress drown, dying a horrible death, while you go home and sleep it all off? Have the last name Kennedy, and all is forgiven, and anyone who takes you to task and calls you a murderer, will be viciously attacked by democrats AND their allies in the media! Child molesters, traitors, and general dirt bags are all protected to the fullest extent by democrats. The ONLY sin for a democrat is to stray off the reservation and have an original thought. For this you will be viciously attacked by your fellow democrats!

Republican Party “leaders,” however, refuse to stand up and be counted when one of their own is viciously attacked, almost always with lies and distortions. And God help you if you’re an actual Conservative, because these Republicans “leaders“will join the attacks!

Case in point, the shooting of democrat Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords, and others, that left 6 dead and more, including Giffords, critically wounded.

While the victims lay bleeding, waiting on EMS, the usual suspects were already blaming Governor Sarah Palin and the Tea Party and their “violent rhetoric ” for the shootings. Marcos Moulitsas, publisher of the democrat party hate site Daily Kos was quick to blame Governor Palin for the “gunsights” she had placed on Giffords and other democrats “targeted” for defeat in the 2010 election. [a practice LONG used by democrats] As we reported at the time, in 2008, Moulitsas himself had a “hit list” of so-called “blue dog” democrats who didn’t tow the radical democrat party extremist agenda line 100% of the time. On Moulitis’ list with a BULL’S-EYE, no less, was Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords, who he “targeted” as a “sell-out.” By the next day this was a key element to getting at the truth of who the shooter REALLY was, and his motivation.

Also before the bodies got cold, another actor, someone who very much has blood on his hands in all of this, came out attacking the Tea Party, blaming them for the shooting: Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, a democrat. This vile attack really becomes stomach turning once you know the facts of HIS involvement in it all.

For their part, the Republican Establishment, in unison, hid, at first, then either attacked Governor Palin, or at the very least, her way of doing things, a common theme amongst these completely useless losers, to this day.

Of course, by the next day the actual FACTS surrounding the shooting, and the shooter, radical DEMOCRAT Jared Lee Loughner came to light. You see, Loughner, a typical democrat extremist, was motivated by the rhetoric of the DEMOCRAT PARTY leadership, that says no independent thought is allowed! While MOST democrat extremists DO NOT go out and murder on a routine basis, it should be noted that almost every single mass shooting in recent history has been carried out by a democrat, and blamed on the GOP, whose leadership cowered in fear, rather than fight back against the lies and hate.

The facts about Congresswoman Giffords’ assassin are thus: Loughner was a DEMOCRAT who had stalked Congresswoman Giffords, in person and writing, since 2007, long before all but the most politically astute among us even knew whom the hell Sarah Palin was, and, of course, before the Tea Party was even formed! So in no way was Loughner “inspired” by Palin OR the Tea Party! Oh, and the good Sheriff Dupnik? It seems Congresswoman Giffords had numerous restraining orders against Loughner, none of which were being enforced, and there were findings that Loughner needed to be locked up, for long term mental evaluation and treatment BEFORE the shootings.

Now no one can know for sure EXACTLY why Sheriff Dupnik refused to do anything about a known menace to society, and potential assassin, but we do know for a fact, that during this time, Loughner’s aunt worked for the Sheriff’s Department. You draw your own conclusions. At the very least, Dupnik is a degenerate liar, a common democrat trait, who KNEW the truth and chose to attack the Tea Party, and is culpable in the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords, and the deaths of six human beings, through gross negligence and dereliction of duty.

When the truth came out, Governor Palin did what she always does, and called out the lying bastards herself, calling the attack on her and the Tea Party EXACTLY what is was, a blood libel. The GOP “leadership” did what it always does when Palin defends herself and fellow patriots. They started attacking HER!

Again, all of the facts were known the day after the shootings, thanks to hard working Conservative bloggers. The Republican Party “leadership,” however failed to speak up and call out the democrat party for it’s hate and lies. As the GOP hates both Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, with a passion, it’s not hard to understand why these useless bastards said nothing. The problem is, of course, this allowed the democrats to paint the ENTIRE Republican Party as “extremist” and so on. The GOP would rather attack it’s own, siding with democrats, rather than defend fellow Republicans and protect the Republican brand. To this day, idiot democrats STILL blame Governor Palin AND Republicans for the shooting. Giffords’ husband is also allowed to continue the lie, without a single word from anyone in the GOP.

Now we all understand why the Republican Establishment fear and loath Governor Sarah Palin. The Governor is a proven reformer, something that dates back to her earliest days on the Wasilla City Council, when she took on her mentor [a fellow Republican who convinced her (actually begged her) to get into politics and running for office] over what she perceived as a conflict of interest. Of course once Palin became Mayor and was then term limited out, she was appointed to the powerful position as Chairman of Alaska’s oil and gas commission. It was here she uncovered massive corruption on several levels by numerous Republicans, including the Governor, Attorney General, and very powerful GOP Party Chair of Alaska. It was also here that she was threatened by all of the above, after taking her concerns to the Governor. Amid threats, Governor Palin famously resigned her high paying gig, teamed up with democrat Eric Croft, and as a private citizen, without any title whatsoever, saw to it the entire Republican Party Establishment in Alaska went down!

This of course would lead to Palin winning a landslide election for Governor, with the FBI still perp-walking Republicans off to prison months after she took office! In office, Palin passed massive reforms. This is why the GOP Establishment hates Palin to this day, and also cheered [some in private, some loudly in public] when Obama’s hand picked thugs in Alaska started carrying out their jihad against the Governor after the 2008 election. A jihad that was costing the state of Alaska millions of dollars, and led Governor Palin to do the only honorable, and intelligent thing to do, for the good of the state: Resign.

Republican “leaders” are very fearful of a potential Palin presidency, and it’s a certainty she would insisted on reforming Washington, and would have ZERO problem with taking out corrupt Republicans. People who put principle over party are the absolute enemy of the Ruling Class.

But what of the Tea Party? Yes, we know there are a number of angry former democrats involved, what we used to call “Reagan democrats ” and of course a whole bunch of independents, but by any measure, the Tea Party is the BASE of the Republican Party. The people the GOP absolutely MUST have on board if it ever plans to win major national elections. The Republican Party may be the only political party in human history to be stupid enough to consistently attack it’s own political base, more viciously, and regularly, than the opposition. The GOP is at outright war with Conservatives, and has no problem saying it.

But never mind the stupidity of the GOP “leadership” what of the Republican brand, as a whole? Most Americans don’t spend their days immersed in politics. Most get a few minutes of news a day. By NOT defending Sarah Palin, and the Tea Party, by allowing these patriotic Americans, whose only goal is a better America for all, to be attacked by the democrats, and labeled “dangerous” they are allowing the entire GOP to be labeled the same. It’s counter-productive.

Useless, stupid, or just so goddamned corrupt they’d rather remain the minority party, with their gravy trains intact, than actually stand for something, the results are the same: The GOP “leadership” is a real problem.

It’s not just with Governor Palin, the Tea Party, or the base, in which the Republican Party “leadership” proves itself to be totally and complete useless.

Lets Go back to the founding of the Republican Party.

As we know, the democrats were pro-slavery. The other main party, the Whigs, were very much like today’s weak-ass GOP. They gave lip service to the abolitionists, and other constituents, without doing much of anything at all. The Republican Party was, indeed, a third party that grew, and replaced the Whigs. [Some of us wouldn’t be upset if History repeated itself, as the GOP is now the modern day equivalent of the Whigs]

We all know the story. Abraham Lincoln became President, the first REPUBLICAN President, the democrats in the South seceded from the Union, and the bloodiest war in United States history was on. Lincoln Freed the slaves with the Emancipation Proclamation, and democrats have been trying to rewrite the circumstances of that ever since! What many forget is, after victory in the Civil War, President Lincoln had a rather comprehensive Civil Rights bill he wanted to push through Congress. John Wilkes Booth took care of that, as did Lincoln’s successor: democrat Andrew Johnson, who immediately placed Lincoln’s Civil Rights bill in the old circular file.

Civil Rights were dead, elements of the democrat party created the KKK, a domestic terror unit tasked with attacking and killing Republicans, and it would take almost 100 years until action on Civil Rights saw the light of day again.

Meanwhile, progessivism [what we now call liberalism] and it’s notion of eugenics and “white supremacy” took hold.

The KKK, which wasn’t necessarily anti-Negro, unless they were Republicans of course, had been mostly wiped out, only to be reborn as white supremacists by “progressives” like democrat Woodrow Wilson, whose favorite film was Birth of a Nation, basically a KKK recruiting film, which portrayed blacks as savages and the newly named White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan as the saviors of humanity. Wilson showed this film to guests in the White House. It was under Wilson that the military, which had been mostly desegregated, was re-segregated. Wilson also had black federal workers fired, replacing them with white workers.

It wasn’t until after WWII Civil Rights was back on the agenda of an American President. We all know after a fight with the democrat governor of Arkansas, over the Supreme Court ruling in Brown vs The Board of Education, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower sent the military to Little Rock, enabling black children to finally go to the same schools as white children.

Eisenhower also introduced the Civil Rights Act of 1957, which set the democrat party on fire with opposition.

Supposed “champions” of Civil Rights, Senator John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Baines Johnson both voted against Civil Rights. Johnson also fought to stop the Voting Rights Act of 1960, another Eisenhower initiative.

While LBJ and the democrats now get credit for the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the fact is, it was first championed by Republicans, while a majority of democrats were viciously opposed. Without almost 100% Republican support, it would have never passed.

Johnson only got on board after realizing a political opportunity to gain a voting block, the same reason Obama and his democrats want to legalize 40 million illegals [and all of the relatives they will bring in] today. There are several reported notorious quotes from Johnson on his Civil Rights support in 1964. Famously he reportedly said “I’ll have the ‘nigras’ voting democrat for the next 200 years.” He also reportedly said, of Civil Rights and other issues: “ Give the ‘nigras’ enough to shut em up, but not enough to actually make a difference” Which, of course, is EXACTLY what the democrat party has done for the last 50 years. LBJ also reportedly explained to a staffer on the occasion of appointing Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court: “Son, when I appoint a ‘nigra’ to the Court, I want everyone to know he’s a ‘nigra’!” Knowing how democrats today call Black Conservatives “Uncle Toms,” “Aunt Jemimahs” and “House Niggers” for having independent thought and rejecting the evils put forth by the democrat party, it’s not difficult to believe the alleged quotes attributed to Johnson are real.

We all know, with unemployment among blacks twice the rate of any one else, and poverty levels equally unequal, that democrats have successful exploited blacks for 50 years, on the strength of supposedly being the “champions” of Civil Rights, even though the truth of the matter is the exact opposite. Sadly, blacks are about to learn what happens, the hard way, when democrats find themselves a better group to exploit, with illegal aliens, soon to be allowed to vote … legally …. being the new “black“!

What does this walk through the vile and racist history of the democrat party have to do with the feckless Republican Party “leadership“?

Easy, from the beginning, the very passage of the Civil Rights Bill of 1964, Republicans allowed democrats, including racists like Robert C Byrd [a top leader in the KKK who remained in the US Senate, as a democrat, until his death in 2010] who fought Civil Rights tooth and nail, along with Albert Gore, Sr, father of noted global warming scam artist Albert Gore, Jr, to claim they support Civil Rights.

Weak, spineless Republicans allowed democrats to OWN the whole shebang, and have allowed them to rewrite history completely, including the outright bullshit myth of a party swap” that occurred [depending on which lying-ass democrat is telling it] in the late 1950’s, early 1960’s, or because of Nixon’s “Southern Strategy™” in 1968. [Because thanks to socialist LBJ the economy was in the crapper and even racists will vote with their pocketbook on occasion!]

With Nixon it was “the economy, stupid” as well as the democrats’ total mishandling of the Vietnam war, that gave him a landslide victory. [not that Nixon, a liberal, was worth a damn on either, himself] According to the myth, the people in both parties just somehow COMPLETELY swapped, with the Republicans becoming democrats and the racist, hate spewing, KKK loving democrats ALL becoming Republicans. Of course, it makes perfect sense that racist democrats, who opposed Civil Rights, to the point of violence and bloodshed, would suddenly become Republicans within weeks of the ACTUAL Republicans championing and PASSING the Civil Rights Act of 1964! It makes sense in the fantasy world democrats live in, anyway!

Now it’s one thing that the useless Republican Party “leadership” has allowed the democrats, the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, and Margaret Sanger, to proclaim themselves virtuous champions of Civil Rights, while claiming Republicans racists who want to bring back slavery, but the GOP Establishment doesn’t stop there. Oh no, when facing certain defeat from a Conservative in a primary, these clowns will JOIN the democrats in calling fellow Republicans racist! The latest example of this was 2014 Mississippi where Alzheimer poster boy Thad Cochran not only joined the democrats in calling his fine Tea Party opponent a racist, compete with accusations of being a member of the KKK, but also facilitated a massive illegal vote by democrats, who had already voted in the state’s democrat party primary. It’s illegal, universally, to try and vote in more than one party’s primary, during the same election cycle.

What this GOP does is allow ALL Republicans to be reliably labeled as racists. Never mind these same useless bastards are themselves labeled racist. These Republicans have proven over and over they’d rather fight Conservatives, the actual voters they MUST have to win national elections, than the democrats, who are hellbent on destroying the United States and all she stands for!

And speaking of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and a “progressive” white supremacist, who called blacks “human weeds that must be eliminated,” is a bonafied democrat party icon. Every year democrats give each other “Margaret Sanger Awards,” evidently based on who helped slaughter the most innocent children at their abortion mills, that year. Hillary Clinton, upon receiving the Sanger Award in 2009, called the racist white supremacist her “HERO” Nary a peep out of the Republic Party “leadership“!

Contrast this with former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, a Republican, and former Dixiecrat Strom Thurmond, who saw the evils of his ways, reformed, became a Republican, and spent the rest of his life making up for his wrong-headed democrat thinking.

On the occasion of Thurmond’s 100th birthday, a milestone in anyone’s life, Lott made the rather innocent remark that Thurmond, who once ran for President as a segregationist, would have made a fine president. That didn’t mean either man was racist, or that Lott wished a return to segregation. It was just something nice to say to an old man who was greatly admired by colleagues in BOTH parties, who was not going to be around a lot longer. Of course, the democrats made quick hay of this, calling Lott and the Republicans “racists who want to bring back Jim Crow and slavery” their old stand-by talking points, never mind BOTH Jim Crow and slavery were democrat party programs.

How did the Republican Party “leadership” react to this vile, vicious, totally untrue assault on Senator Lott and the GOP, as a whole?

They did what they always do, they cowered and fear and threw Lott so far under the bus it wasn’t funny! The GOP “leadership” quickly forced Lott to resign, and it wasn’t long before he was out of the Senate for good. Forever labeled a racist, by both parties. It was, and is, evil.

Hillary Clinton, who called a woman who dedicated her life to eliminating the Negro Race, her HERO, faced not a single question or condemnation from the GOP, and despite the current e-mail scandal, and possible criminal prosecution, remains the front runner for the democrat nomination in 2016!

I could go on and on, but I think you get the general idea. When it comes to defending the Republican Party, the Conservative base, or the United States herself, and her people, from the evils the democrats and their moonbat base intend to visit on America, the Republican Party “leadership” is useless. More useless than tits on a boar hog!

And while it may seem a bit cavalier to compare the uselessness of the Republican Party Establishment, to an old bit of Southern slang, the cold hard truth is that by enabling evil, The GOPe is itself, evil.

The Republican Party “leadership” has consistently failed to protect the United States, her people, and even their own brand, from assault by lying, corrupt, Anti-American democrats.

So what is the remedy?

Either the Republican party “leadership” must go, or the entire Republican party must go, and go the way of the Whigs, destined to the ash heap of history, for if America is to survive, we MUST send liberalism, and the democrat party, to the deepest bowels of oblivion, or America as we know it, America as our Founding Fathers fought a bloody Revolution to create, will cease to exist, forever.

And you know what? When America dies, it will be the Republican Party “leadership’s” fault.

The United States Constitution and the Rule of Law is under direct assault and rather than doing it’s job, and fighting for America, the Republican Party “leadership” chooses to attack those who WILL defend America at any cost.

More useless than anything ever conceived, or just pure evil?

What say you, gentle readers?

CPAC-American Encore-Twitter Straw Poll: Sarah Palin 58%, Ted Cruz 21%, Scott Walker 13%

Sarah Palin in Western Wear Reflective Pose

By Gary P Jackson

With the start of CPAC, an online CPAC-American Encore-Twitter straw poll went live. Over the course of the event voters were given a list of 16 candidates to choose from. The way the poll worked is every time someone hit the link to tweet support for their choice for President in 2016, a vote was counted. The tweet included the hashtag CPAC2015 along with the candidate’s name.

The top results from the straw poll are as follows:

Sarah Palin 58%

Ted Cruz 21%

Scott Walker 13%

Rand Paul 8%

As with any straw poll, this is NOT scientific, and merely reflects the sentiments of those who took time to vote. [just like the live in-person vote that took place at CPAC]

A very strong and consistent showing for Governor Palin in this poll, which was live well before she had given her outstanding speech. We don’t know if Governor Palin will actually run in 2016. She has not ruled it out. And as her show on the Sportsman Channel is still in first run, don’t look for anything until the Summer, after the new season wraps, at the earliest.

The Night We All Were Vets and Witnessed Commander-in-Chief To Be

1a

By Isabel Matos

I can’t express how amazing this woman is, just like Medal of Honor recipient, Sgt. Dakota Meyer said in his introduction which was strong and heartfelt.  It was such an impressive gesture (aside from the flawless delivery) to dedicate the entire speech to just veterans in such an appropriate and genuine tribute which we were so much more informed by. Who could have guessed this was what she was going to talk about and yet, it made perfect sense. She was serious. She showed command of foreign policy and personalized for us what vets and their families have gone through. We were all vets last night. Sarah shined and will continue to shine in God’s grace as well (I’m not an openly prayerful writer but..) who can deny it, or explain how she does it. How does she keep topping herself each time? What a treasure, America. What a future ahead.  This was done the way she likes things done-get the tough message across but without being disagreeable, nasty or assigning blame except to those who are putting us in harm’s way: corrupt government, Obama and his naively dangerous policies. I love you, Sarah. We love you, vets.  ~ IM   

intro dakota

Sgt. Dakota Meyer Introduces Gov. Sarah Palin 

“I want to give a special thank you to veterans and military spouses, along with gold star families in the audience.

“Our next guest needs no introduction, so I was truly honored Gov. Palin asked me to introduce her. I want to talk about the Gov. Palin I know, who’s not only in public service but who’s a mother, a wife, and a mother of a service member. This is important because today, .5%, serves in the military. And yet we have politicians from both parties who feel they’re experts in foreign policy who want to commit the U.S. military every time there is a playground fight between two oil barons in the Middle East. And look.. We’re not afraid to fight by no means, trust me on that, but how about give us a fight we can win? APPLAUSE. A fight where politicians and bureaucrats stay out of our way, because we’ll get it done. APPLAUSE.

That .5% is carrying the burden of the 95.5 percent of this country. We’ve heard a lot about the 98% and 2% in the media from these politicians. But you know what? They are talking about money, about how rich or how poor we are, about how large of a soft drink we can drink, about who’s up and who’s down. That’s what this town spends its days on. But you know what no one is talking about? The .5%. That’s okay. Because we, the .5%, we are proud to serve. Because of the service of so many of our country’s men and women in Washington is free to talk about what Washington feels it is important to talk about.. Washington can sit and worry about who got the committee assignment and who was invited to what party, who got snubbed or who got caught off guard on camera. But those of us like Track Palin who served in Iraq and like Governor Palin, a mother, who stayed up nights worrying about the unthinkable if her child would make it home. Well, we’ll continue to serve.

Now a lot of you are probably thinking, where is he going? Is he going to introduce Governor Palin or not? (laughter). I say all of this to make a point. The amazing woman that I’m introducing knows what veterans have gone through. She knows that we’re not charity cases and that we want nothing more than to serve our great nation. She knows that when the bell is rung again, that we will be ready. We will be there. We will be ready to do the nation’s bidding at a moment’s notice again, and whatever is necessary to defend our rights as Americans but also those across the globe who are less fortunate than us. She knows, because she’s lived it. Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Governor Palin.

heartfelt speech at cpac

Governor Sarah Palin’s speech at CPAC 2015.

Thank you so much. I am so honored to get to be here. Thank you. I’m glad to be here. And I am so honored to be able to speak about America’s finest, our veterans. I was asked to speak about veterans and I said absolutely. Talk about near and dear to my heart, this subject. Sgt. Dakota Meyer, I thank you so much for that introduction. Applause. His selfless service reminds us of that love, that patriotic love that our country was built upon and his selfless service inspires us. He and his generation of vets remind us of that courage that founded this country. In fact, I’d like to tell you a story about America’s first veterans and what this city’s namesake said about them.

1783. It was just days after the last British troop left our soil and the father of our country General George Washington. He gathered his officers in a New York City tavern to bid them farewell. These hardened men they had fought for years they fought against the greatest military might in the world at that time. Against all odds they won freedom, freedom for themselves and freedom for every American since.

Standing before them Washington was overcome with emotion knowing the sacrifices that they had made. He said with a heart full of love and gratitude I now take leave of you. I most devoutly wish that your latter days be as prosperous and happy as your former ones have been glorious and honorable. That was the wish for our first veterans and it should be ours for every veteran that’s followed. But we must ask, have we lived up to that?

From then until now, there’s been a long line of heroic vets and they connect our history, from George Washington to Chris Kyle. Millions like them. APPLAUSE. Millions like them, ordinary Americans, equipped for extraordinary things because they have come forward to serve and to save Americans’ lives. How many have done more than this generation in uniform, though?

The war on terror is the longest military engagement in U.S. history. So many have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tens of thousands wounded. More than 6800 dead. The strain of military and their families is enormous.

During WWII the average deployment in combat theater it was 6 months. Korean war, 9 months. Vietnam, 13 months. For Iraq and Afghanistan, an initial enlistment was 45 months. These deployment costs, they are huge and they are hidden.

The longer someone’s deployed and then re-deployed, the more likely they will suffer PTSD. Half a million of our returning vets suffer some form of it.

And they suffer a disproportionate unemployment rate. The average divorce rate is around 80%. And worse, and worse the suicide rate among our best and our brightest, is 23 a day. As we gather here today we think we’re secure, we’re having fun. Four days together in a conference, in these four days 92 of our veterans will have taken their lives.

So have we lived up to Washington’s wish for our vets?

I don’t ask this as a politician, as Dakota was suggesting there. No. I ask this as one of so many mothers of a combat vet. When my son went off to war the first time as a teenager, I was confronted with the same reality that all the other moms have to face- that’s realizing that, man, I wasn’t going to be there to help, to protect. Moms can’t be there when they hurt. I can pray and I did, and I do. But few things are more difficult than to kiss a child goodbye into harms way knowing that you’re not going to be there to protect. Those first deployments, that is when a parent goes from calling them son to calling them sir.

America hands over her sons and her daughters in service with the promise that they will be taken care of. Our troops are promised that no one will be left behind on the battlefield. Their promise that a grateful nation will spare no expense to patch them up and bring them back to health when wounded. And now, they come wounded too many broken in body and spirit. Well, we, their mothers and their fathers and their husbands and their wives, we’re here to collect on their promises made. We can’t wait for DC to fix their bureaucratic blunders.

This bureaucracy is killing our vets. APPLAUSE. They wait for months. They wait for years to get treatment at the VA and they’re losing hope. The VA’s mistakes and cover-ups? They have lost the lives of 500 vets in just the last four years and that doesn’t account for those who took their own lives in despair.

We’ve witnessed the way corrupt government treats our vets, the VA putting them on secret waiting lists and deceiving Congress, and spying on investigators who are just trying to get to the bottom of it. And don’t be fooled into thinking the problem’s resolved simply the media doesn’t cover lame duck scandals anymore. Just because one guy at the top resigned, the problems didn’t resigned. The reason that you don’t hear about them is that our vets don’t whine. They’re not wired to complain. That’s why this ran under the radar for so long. APPLAUSE.

Our debt of gratitude starts payment with 3 simple solutions that government can and should do right now because it is time to demand solutions.

Debt

1st – with Health Care. Give vouchers for treatment outside the VA. Give our VETS the same freedom that they gave us, and Instead of illegal aliens cutting in line being rewarded with a handout of U.S. Benefits, that we demand that U.S. vets are first in line!! BIG APPLAUSE….Cheers, standing.

2nd – Allow vets who are re-entering the civilian work force.. let them use the skills that they learned in military. Today, say a vet with superb computer or mechanical skills often they have to go backward go back and take classes to get a paper degree or paper certificate to slap on the wall that says okay now I’m certified in a field that they already knew. Let them test out and their military certification transfer over. Common sense. Yeah. APPLAUSE. Common sense is a think I know is an endangered species in these parts.

3rd – Secure their Benefits. Congress secured t.h.e.i.r. benefits. Did you know that LAST year Congress actually voted to cut vets’ retirement benefits by 20 percent. Did they vote to cut their own? No. They only reverse course when enough of us rose up in protest. Take the issue away from the politicians or after legislation to secure benefits permanently.

Health Care and Benefits, this is just part of the equation. General Washington wished for our veterans that their deeds in war would be recognized as glorious and honorable. But the thing that those vets from the revolutionary war had that today’s troops don’t.. is VICTORY. And that is the thing they cherish most. They deserve to know that their sacrifices are not in vain, to know that what they fought for and that what their friends died for was worth it. APPLAUSE.

commander in chief

It is said that old men declare wars and they send the young ones to fight them. So it’s the duty of he who sends them to actually make sure that we can win those wars.. And it’s our duty to elect an honorable commander in chief who is willing to make the same sacrifices he sends others away to make. BIG APPLAUSE.

We must provide our troops with the political will to win and the rules of engagement to win. How many Americans are harmed today because politically correct rules of engagement are imposed by those who are too uncomfortable to give troops the tools and the trust that they need to win. That leads to a very unpleasant question. And it is one that every gold star mom and every veteran will live with forever.

“Did we actually win in Iraq and Afghanistan before we waved the white flag?” The jury is still out.

But when evil Islamic terrorists is on the march screaming Allahu Akbar from Syria to Iraq, Libya and Yemen, in the streets of Paris.. Well it doesn’t look like victory. The Middle East is a tinderbox, and it’s coming apart at the seams. It’s a death cult’s playground. ISIS expands. It takes back land that we just built on blood to secure, when their ultimate goal is the caliphate that extends from Baghdad to Damascus to Jerusalem itself. Only in Egypt is Jihad in retreat and that is no thanks to Obama’s administration. Remember, they supported the Muslim Brotherhood, which was finally toppled by the people in one of the largest popular revolts in history.  APPLAUSE.

Now in 09 when Obama took over the war on terror, Islamists were in retreat and Al-Qaeda was a broken force. Now Islamists, they control more territory than ever. It’s where they train and launch more attacks on us and our allies, and that was predictable. Military brass warned the left, do not pull out without allowing a residual force to remain, to keep a lid on it, and to retain the ground that the good guys just gained.

Friends, the rise of ISIS.. it is the direct result of this administration’s refusal to heed that warning. APPLAUSE.

Boko Haram

And now everywhere you look Islamists are on the march from Boko Haram selling school girls as slaves and ISIS crucifying Christians and burning the innocent alive in cages and beheading children, babies. Aside from God almighty what is the only force strong enough to keep this barbaric rolling tide at bay. The only thing standing between us and savages, it’s the red white and blue, which is the United States military!! LOUD APPLAUSE, CHEERS.

We are in a long-term civilizational struggle against the forces of evil. And if we intend to beat them, we better get serious about victory. The consequences of weakness is retreat and defeat. In the past our leaders confronted evil with moral clarity, eliminated fascists and the Nazis. They confined communism to the dustbin of history.

Make no mistake. Radical Islamists are just as dangerous as those ideologies. And Islamists now swear they’re going to bring the fight to our shores. ISIS threatens to raise the white flag over our White House. They told president Obama. We will cut off your head in the White House. But our lead-from-behind president thinks that we can co-exist with these genocidal thugs. He thinks the Islamic State isn’t really Islamic?! Pretending it’s not there doesn’t make it go away. Calling it something else won’t make it so, and lecturing Christians to get off our high horse about calling them radical Islamists won’t stop the Islamists from killing Christians. APPLAUSE.

1e

Stop blaming the victim and wake up, Mr. President. While Christians bow our heads to pray for you, radical Islamists want to cut off your head. The world that they want is a world that would submit.  We will never submit to evil. APPLAUSE.. We will consign radical Islam to the ash-heap of history just like the Nazis before them. Oh, the naive Obama State Department. They say we can’t kill our way out of war. Really? Tell that to the Nazis. Oh, wait. You can’t because they’re dead. We killed them.

History proves the destruction of the enemy’s military apparatus. That leads to victory. And from victory to peace. So we will not tolerate politicians who squander the precious lives of our sons and our daughters on the battlefield and then when they come home politicians callously refusing to respect and repay them. Our vets deserve better.

And we demand better. Because friends, if you want look for the virtues that set our nation apart from the enemy, you will find them in those who wear the uniform, who take the oath, who pay the price for our freedom. The Jihadists fight out of hatred of Jews, Christians and women and diversity and freedom. Our troops they fight out of love. Love of family and country and freedom. And if you love freedom, thank a vet! And I would ask any veteran here today or active duty military, honor us by please standing. APPLAUSE.. We want to thank you. We salute you. We ask you to stand. We love you. STANDING APPLAUSE … Thank you. Sarah applauds. We love you.

Points to sign. Look, conservative action starts here, okay? Here’s our call to action and not just here but everywhere every day find a vet. Thank them and honor them and tell them yes, you love your freedom and you know who it is that needs to be thanked. So we will honor General Washington’s wish said with heart full of love and gratitude to achieve glorious and honorable victory on the battlefield and help our freedom fighters’ civilian days be as prosperous and happy as their service to us was brave and true. So with one voice, let us say, God Bless the United States Military. We thank you veterans and God bless the United States of America.

STANDING OVATION. CHEERS. LOUD APPLAUSE.

Thank you so much and of course I’m happy to take some questions that you all would have for me as much as time permits.

Moderator: We will do a lightning round of one-word answers for the following:

Barack Obama –

Gov. Palin: Sorry

Moderator: Hillary RodhamClinton –

Gov. Palin: I’m sorry. .

Moderator: Lady Margaret Thatcher –

Gov. Palin:  Iron

Moderator: We have a lot of young people here tonight in the audience, what do you think are the issues of concern for them today as the next generation of leaders:

Gov. Palin: Hopefully some of the message I just delivered will be received. I know that the folks in this room get it. They have that great love and I know they understand they have to sacrifice all in terms of service. These kids need to understand, like Thomas Paine said: ‘If there be trouble let it be in my day that my child will have peace’, meaning we need to make sacrifices today and not be so doggone selfish they they would give these kids and their kids after that so in debt that they are so constrained and confined that they are shackled. I think it’s illegal.

Is there a double standard in the way women running for president are treated as opposed to men in the media?

Gov. Palin: Yes.

The transcription was made the old-fashioned way. By listening and writing what I heard. IM

Just wanted to remind new readers that Governor Palin served as Command-in-Chief of the only permanently deployed National Guard unit in America. She also shared Strategic Command of the 49th Missile Battalion, our nation’s first line of defense from ballistic missile attack.

Video: Governor Sarah Palin Reprises Her Commander-in-Chief Role, Honors Veterans at CPAC2015

Governor Sarah Palin at CPAC 2015

By Gary P Jackson

Introduced by Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, Governor Sarah Palin gave a powerful speech in support of our nation’s military. Alaska’s former Commander-in-Chief spoke, not as a politician, but as the proud mother of a veteran of both the Iraq and Afghan wars.

Governor Palin talks about the horrific treatment our veterans suffer at the hands of the federal government, and what must be done to fix things. She talks about the need to put our veterans “first in line” when it comes to health care benefits and other services, and notes illegal aliens receive far better, more preferential treatment.

The Governor also talks about the need for better opportunities for veterans returning to civilian life, and the absurdity of having to go to school to “get a piece of paper” to certify they know how to do a job they were already well trained for in the military. After all, one of the military’s selling points is you can learn skills that translate to jobs in the civilian world! [Which is true]

Almost every sentence is quotable, so instead of boring you …. here’s her full speech, courtesy of of our friends at SarahNet:

B-z_HrbUMAAe_cP

Governor Palin, who got many standing ovations, was the one speaker folks wouldn’t let leave the stage without getting a handshake from and the obligatory selfie with!

Like this one from Keira Lyn:

and this one:

Seen.com has a collection of tweets about and user generated images of Governor Palin here.

BTW, since the “legitimate media” seems to focus on what Governor Palin wears as much, or more than what she says, let me just say what a great outfit she had on. Loved the skirt and the shoes! That would be a great outfit to have her official White House photo made in!

“Irrelevant” Sarah Palin Steals the Headlines at SNL’s 40th Anniversary Bash

Politics is downstream from pop culture.

~ Andrew Breitbart

Sarah Palin definitely gets pop culture. She has a transcendent pop culture factor.

~ Andrew Breitbart

By Gary P Jackson

On Sunday night Lorne Michaels and his team put on an excellent tribute to 40 years of Saturday Night Live. It was a well done stroll down memory lane, and the entire cast deserves accolades. That said, it’s the little hockey mom from Wasilla, Alaska who grabbed all the headlines.

From the dress she wore on the red carpet [and who may have worn it before] to who she was seen with: Alec Baldwin, Al Sharpton, and Taylor Swift; to her skit with Jerry Seinfeld, tongues are wagging and the media is spinning.

First the dress! Governor Palin, who turned 51 a couple of days ago, was absolutely stunning in her white dress and trademark Kawasaki glasses.

sarah-palin-shows-some-skin-in-short-dress-at-snl-40

Sarah Palin SNL 40 2

What had lips flappin’ though, is the dress is the same one Bristol Palin wore to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner in 2011.

While the lamestream media was doing it’s thing, haters gotta hate, Michelle Malkin and others noted women often share clothes with their daughters.

In the real world, women wear dresses more than once! Shocker, I know.

This is where I feel obligated to remind readers that, as Governor, one of the first things Palin did was get rid of the Executive Chef at the Governor’s Mansion in Juneau, looking to save the state money, while saying she didn’t want to “spoil” her kids. She also famously put the jet Governor Murkowski bought on eBay. [later selling it through a broker, when eBay created the buzz, but no buyer] A jet that worked well when Murkowski wanted to go live it up with his cronies in Washington, but useless for traveling in most of Alaska, a state that has more pilots per-capita than any other state, but with most airfields considered primitive, at best, and unsuitable for jet use.

As most know, with Juneau, the state capitol, being so remote and inaccessible, much of the state’s business is done in Anchorage, and there is a Governor’s office there. When working out of Anchorage, Governor Palin would drive herself to work, a sixty mile trip, one way, in her own car, without a security detail. Governor Palin cut spending in her office by a cool million dollars annually vs the previous two governors; Republican Frank Murkowski and democrat Tony Knowels. Borrowing Bristol’s dress, rather than spending money on a new one, is typical of Governor Palin’s fiscal ethics, and just another reason millions would support her if she runs for President.

Others have more to say about this:

And of course ….

Me too!

Governor Palin showed up on the red carpet with Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria in tow.

You gotta love it when Sarah tells Baldwin she still loves his brother even more! As the story goes, Palin and Baldwin actually hit it off when she appeared on SNL in 2008. Like Lorne Michaels, Baldwin was said to be impressed with Palin, the person. Something most people who meet Palin, even those who disagree with her politics, have said.

One of the bits during the show included a question and answer session with Jerry Seinfeld. This is a bit that was popular on SNL years ago. Governor Palin stood up to ask a question, and Seinfeld pretended to confuse her with Tina Fey. Palin corrects Seinfeld, then asks how much Lorne [Michaels] would pay her to run for president in 2016, a nod to how much mileage Tina Fey got out of portraying the Governor. The whole bit is hilarious, Palin’s part is at the end:

The media made a big deal about who the Governor sat with in the audience, Taylor Swift …. who was seated next to Steven Spielberg. Our friends a Twitchy said it best: 2 women who know how to Shake It Off

Then there was this:

Of course, noted tax cheat and race bater Sharpton tweeted:

…. and, while Governor Palin showed nothing but class, Rev Al tweeted this:

Many responded to Sharpton’s tweet by reminding the racist pig to pay his taxes! [He owes some $4.5 MILLION in back taxes -local, state, and federal]

I find it interesting how much heat a supposedly “irrelevant” woman can bring!

The great Andrew Breitbart often said politics were simply downstream of pop culture. He knew the only way to win the culture wars, as well as the political wars, was to be among them. To take part, instead of just set back and bitch about it. He also noted Governor Palin was one of the few that “got it,” having high praise for her ability to connect with people using pop culture.

I think this tweet from Stephen Miller says it all:

The entire show was great, but as usual, it’s Sarah Palin who garnered the lion’s share of the attention.

Ratings Gold: Governor Sarah Palin Joins SNL’s 40Th Anniversary TV Special on Sunday

In 2008 Governor Palin hosted Saturday Night Live, which netted the show it’s best ratings in 17 years, so it’s no surprise Lorne Michaels asked her to return for this 40th anniversary special. SNL is hoping for big numbers and has basically taken over VH1 Classic which has been showing nothing but past episodes, 24/7, all month.

From People Magazine:

Live from New York, it’s … Sarah Palin!

Saturday Night Live’s one-woman ratings bonanza, Sarah Palin will participate in the show’s 40th anniversary special, a political source tells PEOPLE.

SNL producer Lorne Michaels invited Palin to return to the show and the former Alaska governor accepted, a source close to Palin confirms.

Palin, the Republican VP candidate who was regularly spoofed on the show by spot-on comic doppelgänger Tina Fey during – and after – the 2008 presidential race, showed she was a good sport by appearing on the show herself two weeks before Election Day that year.

No hard feelings since then? You betcha!

PEOPLE hears that Palin will return to SNL’s 30 Rock studios bearing gifts – three “Alaska Grown” hoodie sweatshirts for Fey and her two little girls.

SNL’s 40th anniversary special airs Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC
