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.

Governor Palin’s Tweet About the IRS Listening In Confuses the Left

Never Underestimate The Stupidity of Idiots

By Stacy Drake
Follow Stacy on Twitter

On Friday, Governor Palin sent out the following tweet in response to the IRS being closed on the Friday before Memorial weekend:

If you click on the tweet link, you can see the horde of leftists who ignorantly replied to the Governor with snarky comments about how she “confused scandals.” See, they thought that she had confused the fact that Obama has been spying on journalists, with the fact that the IRS (under his leadership) has been singling out conservative groups for extra scrutiny and harassment. Perhaps they wouldn’t be confused if the man they voted for wasn’t currently entangled in so many scandals with so many agencies.

The confusion on their part, lead to this post over at the Huffington Post Thursday called, “Sarah Palin Sends Confusing Tweet About IRS, Phones.” The author wrote:

It’s unclear how the IRS is connected to anything having to do with phones, but it’s possible Palin may have been confusing that scandal with the drama over the Department of Justice secretly seizing two months’ worth of Associated Press phone records in 2012.

Research is your friend, HuffPo. Perhaps this article written in the Wall Street Journal might be able to “clear” things up for the uninformed, knee-jerk haters on the left. It states:

The Internal Revenue Service unit under fire for its reviews of conservative organizations has a long history of targeting groups with extra scrutiny, including foreclosure-assistance charities, credit-counseling services and New York Jewish charities, interviews with current and former employees show.

The scrutiny has included such tactics as listening to telephone calls between groups and their clients, according to one group’s lawyer. In the case of tea-party organizations, IRS officials studied social-media postings to gauge political activity.

Further down the page, they include:

In the mid-2000s, the IRS revoked or terminated the tax-exempt status of more than a dozen credit-counseling firms after finding they operated as businesses that weren’t providing counseling or education. The agency developed a more stringent process for reviewing applications in the years following, including guidelines that advised IRS workers to seek to learn whether counselors collected complete financial information.

Look for evidence in the organization’s forms, transcripts of telephone calls, and elsewhere,” said an IRS instruction memo.

IRS agents also listened in on calls between credit counselors and their clients to measure the interaction, said Jeffrey Tenenbaum, an attorney for nonprofits who said he sat in on some calls in the company of IRS agents.

I guess those on the left have to have this stuff spelled out for them. Yes people, not only was Obama’s DOJ spying on the media, his IRS was spying on members of conservative groups, and they even used phones to do it!

#SaySomethingNiceAboutObama Going as Well As Expected

By Gary P Jackson

One thing I’ve learned over the last year is that Conservatives have mastered Twitter, and are very good at making their topics trend. Conservatives are also good at taking over liberal memes.

Today’s fun topic is #SaySomethingNiceAboutObama. As of this writing, there aren’t many Obama supporters saying anything nice, but they are their usual hate-filled selves. Conservatives, however, are having a blast! Here’s some of the best so far:

I love this one:

If you aren’t following Barbara, you should be!

….or at least as well as!

Tim Tebow weighs in:

Truth:

More truth:

I can relate:

BTW, this is rather typical of Obama supporters who respond to Conservatives. This witty response was to Ashton Neely, above:

Nice huh?

There are thousands more here. Check em out, as well as some of the insane, hate-filled responses from Obama supporters. It’s a real eye opener.

Americans Stand With Trig Palin

This is OUR time…look at what we did for #TrigsCrew….that was us…not a political machine…us…

~ Janet Ney via Twitter

By Gary P Jackson

As you know, a vile website known as Wonkette decided to use the occasion of Trig Palin’s birthday to attack the special needs child, as well as his mother. I wrote about the coming together of people on Twitter and how Trig’s Crew was formed. These wonderful people were able to contact Wonkette’s advertisers, who when shown the kind of sewer rats their dollars were funding, immediately took action.

As Stacy Drake points out, Wonkette is paying the price for attacking a child with Down Syndrome.

At last count, 46 major corporations have vowed to never advertise with this group again. These are some of the nation’s biggest corporations, and all were horrified to see where their money was going.

It should be noted that no one threatened to boycott any of these companies. Members of Trig’s Crew, the name people on Twitter started calling themselves, merely pointed out the article and asked if the companies were OK with this. 46 were not. You can see the list and any updates here.

If you are looking to do business with good people, I highly recommend checking out the list of great companies and doing business with them.

This evil act by Wonkette galvanized a large group of Americans who have said enough is enough.

Debbie Joslin, the National GOP Committeewoman for Alaska, and friend of the Palin’s wrote a lovely letter in support that tells her own story of seeing a handicapped child bullied by thugs, which you can read here.

John Nolte talked with DaTechGuy on Saturday about all of this. John gives everyone a great accounting of how all of this came together. He also talks about the left’s treatment [and fear] of Sarah Palin. listen to the entire interview here.

Of Course, the left has gotten indignant about it. I mean how DARE America get pissed off when a bunch of gutter snipes attack a disabled child!

Andrew Sullivan, a pathetic conspiracy theorist with an unhealthy fixation on Sarah Palin’s uterus, and someone I refuse to link to, pulled out the old stand-by left wing talking point, that Sarah is just using Trig as a “political prop.” No other politician in my memory, who has children, has ever been accused of using them as props.

Funny, during the 2008 race, Barack Obama had his children with him and no one saw that as anything but a father with his girls. But for some reason, it’s all just political theater when Sarah Palin is involved. If Sarah had kept her children hidden, they would be attacking her for that, by the way. All the left knows how to do is attack. They have nothing else going for them.

Sullivan was quickly denounced by everyone in Trig’s Crew, which freaked the left out. They became very concerned that Trig’s Crew was about to take down Sullivan.

Even Sarah Palin’s creepy stalker Joe McGinniss got into the act. McGinniss jumped into the fray by tweeting a link to a website run by a member of Obama’s Alaska Mafia, the hand picked crew Obama and Pete Rouse put together to harass Sarah Palin. Our readers know the Alaska Mafia story well, so no need to go over all of that.

Anyhow, the website Immoral Minority is run by Jesse Griffin, a real winner who dabbles in amateur pornography, and was let go from his job at a day care center in Alaska. [for “undisclosed reasons“] He’s behind many of the conspiracy theories surrounding Sarah. He used his buddy, Denis Zaki, a stringer for CNN, to help “mainstream” his many deranged assertions.

Griffin along with Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon were frequent visitors with McGinniss while he was in Alaska stalking Sarah Palin and her family. I asked McGinniss, via Twitter, if he was just upset that no one was paying attention to him. He responded he’d never been happier. I bet.

It’s telling that all the usual suspects have decided to get involved in this.

The bottom line is, as Nolte points out in his interview with DaTechGuy, this is all about attacking Sarah Palin, and sending her the message that the left will “weaponize” her children when she runs for President. The left has nothing left. None of their attacks on her have worked, because none of them are based in truth. Understanding they can’t compete in the marketplace of ideas, they have decided to pull out their dog eared copies of Alinksy’s Rules For Radicals and attack.

The problem with this is Sarah Palin probably understands Alinsky better than these losers do. She has proven she can turn Alinsky type attacks on her, back on the attackers. The people who attack her do so at their own peril. Sarah Palin knows how to fight. She fights like a girl!

It tells you how morally bankrupt the left has become though. Having nothing going for them, no ideas, no solutions, they are reduced to attacking disabled children in hopes of beating Sarah Palin. It’s rather sad, when you think about it.

All I know for sure is I witnessed something last week that renewed my faith in mankind. I saw thousands of people come together and make a real difference. I saw great companies react to a vile attack on a beautiful boy. I also saw a lot of people come together and realize they indeed had the power to stand up against evil.

A lot of people realized their voices matter.

A Most Wonderful Day

By Gary P Jackson

Social media has become an important part of our lives. Especially Twitter. I know a lot of folks spend time on Facebook networking, and hooking up, but Twitter is the undisputed king when it comes to getting information out fast, and is by far the best way to organize a group of people, and inspire them to act.

In the Middle East, Twitter was used with great effectiveness by Liberty and Freedom seeking protesters. People in Iran, Egypt, Bahrain, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Libya have all used this social media to help effect change, or at least attempt change. The only reason some attempts failed is because the nation’s leaders shut down internet access, thus thwarting this very effective communication tool.

This, by the way, is why many are extremely troubled by attempts in this country to give the president full authority to shut down the internet “in case of emergency,”a chilling thought with this president, but that’s a whole different issue.

The story I want to tell, this wonderful coming together of good and decent people was actually several days in the making. You see, Sarah’s beautiful son Trig just turned three years old! A nice time indeed.

Well, it seems the sewer rats over at Wonkette decided they’d “celebrate” Trig’s birth as well. What’s a “Wonkette” you ask? It’s a vile democrat website that smears anyone and everyone they hate [it’s a long list] hiding under the guise of “satirical license.” They are the darling of the democrat party, and a shining example how morally bankrupt the base of the party has become.

It’s one of those places that helped further the conspiracy that Sarah Palin is not really Trig’s mother, something started by Barack Obama’s hand pick crew in Alaska that we refer to here as the Alaska Mafia. [Google it] People like amateur pornographer Jesse Griffin, one of the Alaska bloggers, frequently see their delusional writing about Sarah Palin and her family “glorified‘ on this website.

To commemorate Trig’s birthday, a really sick bastard by the name of Jack Stuef wrote what can only be called a despicable piece of crap. So vile it defies description.

One has to wonder what kind of sub-human trash would attack a 3 year old child with Down Syndrome, just because they have an irrational hatred for the child’s mother.

This pile of human debris called Trig “retarded” then went into the whole “Trig Truther” nonsense, even going so far to suggest that maybe Todd Palin raped one of his daughters and thus, the whole cover up about who Trig’s real mother was. He also included what I’d characterize mildly pornographic images next to Trig’s likeness.

Oh, and this loser threw out the democrat’s favorite talking point, that Trig is only a “prop” for Sarah and her family. You know, because no other person in politics has ever had family or brought them out in public.

The left would never be caught dead with someone like Trig in public. You wanna know how the sainted Kennedy family treated on of their children?

In 1941, when Rosemary Kennedy was 23 her father, Joe Kennedy, had doctors perform a lobotomy on the girl because she had “mood swings.”

For what it’s worth, I just had a mood swing writing this!

In the end, Rosemary lived her tormented life in an institution. Out of site and pretty much out of mind. After all, Joe couldn’t have his sons JFK, RFK, and Teddy “embarrassed” by their sister.

The left’s hatred for Trig [and Sarah] can be boiled down to the fact she chose not to murder this beautiful child as is the case with most Down Syndrome children. Around 90% of women who are told their children may be born with Down Syndrome chose to abort these babies. A tragedy of unspeakable magnitude.

The cult of death among liberals is also a cult of hatred for all who choose life. All of the hatred for Sarah, the attacks, the lies, are all because Sarah Palin, by keeping her beautiful son, reminds them how disgusting they truly are. It brings out the self loathing in them.

By the way, my newest fantasy is that Todd and Mr Stuef have the opportunity to meet some day. I’ll leave it at that.

The face of today’s democrat party

Now you’re probably wondering where all of the “wonderful” is that I alluded to in the tittle. Well ….

First let me say that two of the real heroes of this story are John Nolte Editor-in-Chief for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Hollywood and Derek Hunter from The Daily Caller These two got the ball rolling, and kept it rolling. with that said, this story has a cast of hundreds, if not thousands, including some great companies who sent a strong message to people that would attack a 3 year old disabled child!

It started early Wednesday, after the vile article had been discovered earlier. Twitter, being the vibrant network it is, went to work.

Now I want to point out early on, that mass calls for boycotts were not part of this effort.

People involved simply found out who the advertisers on that vile site were, and then found their twitter accounts and simply sent them a tweet, including a link to the article, asking them if this was the sort of thing they wanted to be involved with.

There was no intimidation, none of the thug tactics we’ve seen used by the union protesters nationwide. People simply showed these great companies how their hard earned dollars were being used. The sort of thing they were funding.

To their credit, in short order reps from the makers of Huggies and Papa John’s Pizza were very vocal saying they wanted no part of it. Vangard Financial was right behind them.

Now before you ask why they were advertising in this cesspool to start with, you should know, they likely had no idea.

Our man on the East Coast, Greg Tartaglia, did a bit of digging and found that Ken Layne, the owner of the Wonkette hate site, also owns a company called Blogads. It’s one of those companies, like Google Ads, that places advertising fairly randomly around the internet. Blog owners get a small piece of the pie as readers click on these ads. If you visit blogs that feature advertising, you’ve seen this company in action.

From their website:

Today Blogads.com connects 3500 blogs with a joyful stew of advertisers ranging from corporate giants to mom&mom T-shirt peddlers. Advertisers include NBC, Audi, PBS, Time Warner, JohnKerry.com, The Republican National Committee, The New Republic, Rhino Records, O’Reilly Media, Bagnews,Paramount Pictures, Random House, Network Solutions, Turner Broadcasting,eChristianWebhosting, Nokia, VH1, and Budget Renta Car.

Doesn’t Layne’s company sound so wonderful? A “joyful stew” even. [WTF?]

No one would ever know this guy was nothing more than a filth peddler, who traffics in hate, if they read this cheery little description.

As the Twitter effort gained steam, companies like Reliant Energy, Starkist Tuna, The San Diego Zoo, Holland America Cruises, Coldwell Banker and many more all joined in.

Here’s a sample of some of their Twitter replies:

JJIll: “All: Please know we do not condone the Wonkette story. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have taken action to remove our ads.”

Holland America Cruises: “Thanks for letting us known, we have blocked that page from running our ads.”

Nordstrom: “Thanks for letting us know. The ads have been removed. We’re sorry to disappoint you.”

Reliant Energy: “Thank you for alerting us. We did not choose this site and are working to have this removed immediately.”

Bob Evans: “Our ad is not supposed to be running on that site. Agency has been alerted to pull it immediately.”

Coldwell Banker: “We are in the process of pulling our ads from Wonkette.”

DealSwarm: “We’ve pulled our ads from the site — we wouldn’t have approved them running next to that blog post. (Trig is a cutie pie.) Thank you for alerting us — we weren’t aware our ads were running alongside a blog post like that. Ads have been pulled.”

MetroPCS: “We don’t condone @Wonkette, have removed the ad and ensured that our ads won’t appear on this site in the future. Thanks for bringing to our attention.

Oh, and there are many more.

As the day went on, the people at Wonkette really started to feel the heat. Eventually they would scrub the author’s name from the story, as well as many of their fan’s comments about Trig and the rest of the Palin family.

These scrubbed comments were actually as bad, if not worse than the original article, as hard as that may be to believe.

At this point the entire post has been deleted by the Wonkette crew.

The Huffington Post, CNN, and others, who gleefully reported Wonkette’s “birthday greeting” have scrubbed the offensive mess from their websites as well.

Even Google scrubbed the original cashed link, something we didn’t think was possible! The progressives were working over time to send this way down the memory hole.

Speaking of HuffPo, they were feeling the heat as well. The hate mongering site, who’s creator is basically running AOL’s news division now, announced they were banning all talk of Trig Trutherism. Ben Smith reports this here.

This is significant, because HuffPo and Wonkette trade in hateful attacks on Trig, and both have published shocking photoshopped “art” of the young man. If adhered to, this will be quite a blow to Obama’s Alaska Mafia, as they have always been given carte blanche on the Huffington site to post any smear about the Palin’s they could cook up!

Tommy Christopher from Mediaite, a left leaning website was even more forceful, going after Wonkette in a major way. Christopher separated the men from the boys with his very strong piece. Updated several times, it includes a back and forth between Mediaite and Wonkette’s Ken Layne a morally bankrupt loser. This is a must read.

As the day went on, and as bloggers started reporting on this, more advertisers rejected Wonkette, and more hate started flying from the embattled group.

In particular, Wonkette’s people were angered by Papa Johns Pizza, calling for the bottom feeders who read their website to boycott the company.

It’s interesting to note Wonkette had no problem with taking their money, but as soon as they pulled out, they became the worst pizza on earth, and evidently developed homophobia too! I’m surprised they weren’t called racists as well, but I guess since Wonkette seems to only hire white people ….

You can see screen grabs of Wonkette’s tweets here.

The bottom line is this, within the confines of one business day, a whole bunch of good and decent people used Twitter to educate corporate America about a vile group of nasty democrats, and corporate America responded responsibly.

What really struck me was, unlike the strong-arm tactics we have witnessed lately by union thugs nationwide, no one was threatening companies or suggesting boycotts. People on Twitter simply showed these companies the content of the website, and it was on!

Other things started to happen as well, particularly with Papa Johns and Huggies. A whole bunch of people suddenly got hungry for Papa Johns Pizza, and Dana Loesch pointed out that diapers ain’t cheap, and people should go to the store, load up the family truckster with Huggies, and take them to the nearest shelter that helps women with babies.

Thursday morning people were reminding others that food banks are always looking for Starkist Tuna packed in water. Having volunteered in a soup kitchen, I can attest to that myself. Something tells me a lot of shelters are going to benefit from this. Next time you go to the grocery store stock up and take some to the local shelter. Put some in your own pantry as well.

Something else that was just plain awesome, a real hero went out and bought the web domain http://jackstuef.com/ when you click on it, it redirects you to the National Down Syndrome Society’s donation page!

Early on people were tweeting messages to Sarah telling her not to worry, we had her back. Wednesday evening, Sarah sent this tweet:

Big thanks from the Palin family to folks on Twitter today who took a stand for children w/special needs. Happy Easter!Thank you #TrigsCrew

In case you wonder, the #TrigsCrew hashtag, thanks to my hero, John Nolte, is now the identifier that we’ll use on Twitter any time there is a call to arms to fight the kind of evil we saw from Wonkette!

A fitting way to celebrate the day thousands came together to stand up for what was right.

This tweet about Nolte kind of says it all:

Let the world know that @jjmnolte is a fully-functioning badass who can organize a community better than certain Presidents I know.

John, Derek, Dana and a cast of thousands renewed my faith in mankind, and made Wednesday a most wonderful day indeed.

There was a lot of reporting on this event. Far better writers than I.

John Nolte actually was quite prophetic by writing: Twitter Power: Mock the MSM and Watch Them Launch Phony Attacks against Sarah Palin. before the Wonkette story broke. This is a must read for everyone who wants to use Twitter as a tool to effect positive change.

Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion has a good look at the entire mess, and notes, as we have, this isn’t the first time the crapweasels at Wonkette have attacked Sarah and Trig.

Dana Loesch kept up with the timeline of advertisers jumping ship, which you can read here.

Speaking of which, here is a list of companies that have stood up for decency and dumped Wonkette.

As of this writing, 32 companies have taken steps to see their advertising never appears on that website again. Send them a thank you and buy their products. Mention #TrigsCrew in your tweet.

Here’s a partial list of Wonkette sponsors courtesy of Jersey-Texan-Mich-Mash. It includes those that have, and those that have not stopped advertising. There is also a link at the website to screen grabs of the Wonkette post, since they have scrubbed their website trying to act like it never happened, an old trick the Soviet Union was very good at. Check it all out here.

Life News has their take here.

Here’s what Voting Female has to say.

Ad Age had their say.

Greg Gutfield hammered author Jack Stuef and Wonkette as only he can.

Iowahawk [David Burge] tweeted this little diddy poking fun at Stuef’s kindergarten level artistic ability:

@iowahawkblog In which I attempt @wonkette-grade humor: portrait of Ken Layne and Jack Stuef http://bit.ly/fiswT

In closing, I have never been prouder of the American people. Just when you think evil is about to win, evil gets it’s ass kicked.

I would be remiss if I failed to point out that all democrats aren’t like the rabid base of the party. People like Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher went ballistic. Fox’s Kirstin Powers and even lefty Alan Colmes were quick to denounce Wonkette.

On the other hand, the GOP, as usual, was silent as one of their own was savaged. As Sarah says, the GOP has the fighting instincts of sheep.

There was one exception. Herman Cain was quick to join Trig’s Crew and stand with all of us. A class act indeed.

This incident proves that it only takes a relatively small, dedicated, determined group to change things for the better. There were no threats of violence, no vicious name calling. Just good and decent people out there pointing out a grave injustice. It made me realize how strong the people are. How good America really is. How bright our future can be.

It was truly, and completely A Most Wonderful Day.

Tammy Bruce Discusses Sarah Palin’s Re-Tweet [And Gives Us A Real Insight Into The Mind Of The Liberal]

By Gary P Jackson

By now you know it’s officially been a slow news day as “journalists” nationwide are down to analyzing not what Sarah Palin tweets or writes for Facebook, but what she has re-tweeted!

For those unfamiliar with Twitter, it’s a medium where one communicates in 140 characters at a time. Not only can speak your mind, or send out information, as you read the same from others that you follow, you can share what they said with others by “re-tweeting” it to your followers. It’s pretty common practice. Of course as seasoned tweeps will tell you, a re-tweet is not necessarily a complete endorsement of a statement.

This brings us the the story that is dominating the headlines today. On Monday night Tammy Bruce, discussing people who bash gays,and DADT, tweeted the following statement, which as you see, was re-tweeted by Sarah:

As one would imagine, our illustrious national media …. proving they have no concept of how Twitter works …. lost their minds because Sarah “used a gay slur“: “homo.” I mean I guess the media doesn’t understand how Twitter works, and couldn’t comprehend the fact that Tammy Bruce is the one who said it, not Sarah.

That are they are just dishonest hacks as we have known all along!

We love Tammy Bruce because, just like Sarah, she speaks her mind, and doesn’t care what others think about it. [or her] A recovering liberal, Tammy is a strong advocate for Conservatism. I think many recovering liberals, once enlightened make some of the strongest Conservatives. They’ve seen it from both sides. One of our greatest leaders of all times, Ronald Reagan, was once a democrat himself! 

Tammy tweeted this not long after Sarah re-tweeted her statement:

She was mostly correct. Long time supporters of Sarah’s know that she supports equality for all people, including gays. That’s what Conservatism is all about. Those who read Sarah’s first book, Going Rogue, know one of her oldest friends is gay. We also know that while Sarah doesn’t support gay marriage, as Governor she vetoed legislation that would have discriminated against gay couples, on constitutional grounds. Sarah is one to take the Rule of Law seriously.

I’ve read dozens of articles today and almost all of them get it wrong. As our friend Josh Painter, in his excellent analysis of the whole thing points out, Sarah spoke out against DADT last February in a lengthy interview on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace:

WALLACE: “Should the rule ‘don’t ask — don’t tell’ for the Military be repealed?

PALIN: “I don’t think so right now. I’m surprised that the President spent that on his State of the Union speech when he only spent about nine percent of his time in the State of the Union on national security issues. And I say that because there are other things to be worried about right now with the Military.

You can read the rest of Josh’s excellent piece here.

Josh also rightly notes the media chose to make a story of this, but ignored another tweet of Sarah’s on Monday. That one dealt with the rise of the price of gasoline, and how the Obama regime has greatly contributed to it.

That doesn’t fit the narrative though. One, the corrupt media would never admit their messiah is screwing us all. Royally. Two, they’d have to talk about Sarah’s expertise in the field of energy, and how she is pushing for energy independence. That would screw up the “she’s a dummy” meme, wouldn’t it!

The bottom line is yes, Sarah supports Liberty and Freedom for all. Not exactly breaking news!

No she is not on board with Congress’ repeal of DADT, but I suspect that has to do more with her experience as a Commander-in-Chief, and the realization that at a time of war, this is no time for social engineering in the military. There are more important objectives that need to be met. A leader knows how to prioritize.

Tammy Bruce responded to all of this on her radio show. She explains how the realization that Sarah Palin doesn’t “hate the gays” really ruins the radical left’s entire world! She also takes the left to task for being a bunch of closed mined sheeple who all march lock in step, incapable of thinking for themselves.

An excellent analysis of the entire movement.

This is why we love Tammy so much. No one understands how morally bankrupt the left is better than her. And no one calls them out as strongly for it.

Democrats Use Stevens Tragedy to Wish Death on Palin

By Stacy Drake


STRONG LANGUAGE WARNING


In the wake of the passing of former Sen. Ted Stevens, the left displayed how far detached from civility they have become. We keep telling ourselves that we should expect the worst sort of behavior from them considering all they have already said and done. However, as decent people it is impossible to comprehend the levels they will sink, especially on days like this. Today, these people used the internet and the cover of sitting behind a computer monitor to not only wish death upon, but also direct loads of hatred with the usual venom toward Governor Palin. They are even trying to use these forums to intimidate her into not attending Senator Stevens funeral.

Twitter is a cesspool filled with haters who lash out against Governor Palin. Here are just some of the examples, these mighty proponents of “understanding” displayed on there, after news of Senator Stevens death became known.


Not to be left out, the lefty blogosphere decided to get in on the action…
I found these comments posted on Shannyn Moore’s blog pertaining to the Stevens crash. Keep in mind that the “girl from Homer” monitors all of her comments. (I have highlighted the nasty comments in yellow)


The “Trig Truther” brigade at Gryphen’s site couldn’t control their thoughts on the matter either.


This is just a small sampling of the sort of hatred that the left and the Democrats dished out towards Governor Palin and her family in response to the nation losing one of it’s most well-known senators. It is to their shame that nobody on their side has displayed the sort of leadership it would take to get that kind of hatred under control within their ranks. I do believe they are spiraling into a very dark place because nobody told them to STOP! Knock it off! No, nobody on their side calls them out at all. It is accepted behavior therefore they have allowed that hate to fester and grow.

This doesn’t stop with Governor Palin, although I do believe she gets the worst of it. Many other Conservative leaders put up with this behavior from people who forgot how to just simply disagree. Well, if they won’t call out their own side, we will. It is our responsibility to call out any American who losses their grasp of humanity for the sake of power. KNOCK IT OFF!

Sarah Palin’s New Twitter Account Explodes On The Scene!

As we wrote Monday, Sarah Palin announced the early dates for her “Going Rogue” national book tour. At the same time, Sarah announced that she will be back on Twitter.

Sarah’s new Twitter account, SarahPalinUSA, has exploded with an incredible surge of followers. In the 24 hours since she announced the site 12,758 people have signed up to be a part of the excitement.

It should be noted that Sarah’s former Twitter account, the one she used as Governor, had 152,650 followers when she suspended it’s use. To put that in perspective, that was more than Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Bobby Jindal, and Tim Pawlenty had combined, with over 60,000 to spare. Two thirds of those folks joined up after her July 3rd speech announcing she would step down as Governor of Alaska.

With almost one million supporters on Facebook, a number that grows by the hour on her very busy site, it’s quite obvious that Sarah has mastered the internet in ways other politicians have not been able to.

Sarah has been able to by-pass the old media, and get her messages out to America, unfiltered, and unedited. With these messages she has been able to shape the national debate on health care, energy independence, and economic policy. By forgoing traditional media in favor of Facebook, Sarah has been able to make national headlines, and in the case of energy and monetary policy, headlines world wide for her astute reflections on the state of affairs.

This is a brilliant strategy, obviously. The media follow her every move, and as her every Facebook post reaches millions, you don’t have to be signed up to read them, the old dinosaur media is obliged to report what she says, even as they try in vane to refute it. A total win-win situation for her.

When Sarah stepped down, she promised her tweets wouldn’t be so “politically correct” as they had to be when she was Governor. It will be very interesting to see what she will have to say as she tours the nation visiting with Americans on the “Going Rogue” tour.
