I´ll make this quick because, as many of you will no doubt note in the comments, the Internet seems to spend more time than it should discussing the exploits of an almost-one-term governor turned talking head turned talking head without a cable news contract. But given how much attention Sarah Palin´s latest Facebook post has gotten, it´s probably worth the two minutes it takes to debunk one of its more outlandish claims—especially given the conspiracy theory was already debunked before she even wrote about it. Here´s the snippet
Comments: Whoops! Headline resplit and Intro corrected by staff.
Let me see, will I believe the lying Obama administration who is doing its level best to destroy my country through its statist policies, or use my common sense to question why the heck the Obama administration is buying 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammo? Hmmm, wait, I´m thinking, I´m thinking...
The debunking that´s going on doesn´t debunk anything. Who´s doing this debunking? That fact is that the Government is stockpiling massive amounts of ammunition. If you take purchases from the DHS, IRS, EPA, Department of Education and others, they have on the books that they are purchasing over 3B shells. About half are hollow point shells that aren´t used for squirrels or target practice. The left would love to convince everyone that this is not true. Once again, hollow point bullets are not used for target practice. And why do they need to practice so much shooting at targets?
Yup! Palins nuts! Governments never have contingency plans for possible events where the citizens may need protection or riot.
They just bought all that ammo in a whim...
It was then Vice President Joe Biden had envisioned his greatest prank yet. Putting down his choom pipe he turned to the slim squinty eyed President mellowing on the couch, munching on Cheetos.
"Check this out! We will grab a few million and buy a bunch of freakin´ bullets man! It will be epic! We will have all those Tea Baggers and that ditz Palin wigging out all over the place! Hell ya!" Biden said as he extended his hand out to dap his fist with the grinning President, who was busy sparking another bowl of Maui Wowwie!
The government would have us believe that every DHS agent needs more ammo for practice than the avergage combat infantryman gets to shoot, before deploying to a combat zone. The Army did not shoot up that much small arms ammo during a year of combat in Irag at the height of the war. But everyone knows this is the most transparent administration in history.
Palin has never misspoken about anything this big in the past, and she isn´t now. She has only been lied about by people who want to keep truth out of politics (= the socialists = the Democrats). It´s good to see they still consider her a threat to their cover-ups of Dear Leader.
As I said all over Slate, I don´t see any proof that anything has been debunked. All I see are the claims made by the government vs. claims made by others. Just because the government SAYS something doesn´t mean it is true. There is no proof anywhere to support anyone´s claim other than the sheer numbers involved.
The commie msm got away with slandering Joe Mc Carthry for 50 some years before he was proven correct. This is what there are trying to do with Palin. The only problem is the Internet is around now and people have other ways to get info rather than relying on lies by "Pravda Light" .
Liberals never offer facts to back up their statements, only feelings. All they say is thats a lie, and after while they then say, well that was debunked a long time ago. Facts are funny little things, and the libs are highly allergic to them.
Yes, OP and O are in agreement: Palin is a dangerous low hanging fruit. As for me and my family: we are a´believing Palin over all trolls, Storms, Mollies, OP´s and Obambies. The t ruth is not to be found in appeasers, liberals, or moderate Repubs. I trust Palin, DeMint, Cruz, Rubio, and Rand Paul...until I don´t. So far none of those have betrayed my trust. I may or may not agree with each and everything they stand for but I trust them to be honorable men and women. The rest would sell their Mother for power.
Earlier this year, John Kerry and Chuck Hagel took over the top jobs at the Department of State and the Department of Defense, respectively. Since then, Kerry has been hyper-active. But whatever happened to Hagel? He has impinged on our consciousness only once, as Kerry’s sidekick during congressional hearings on authorizing an attack on Syria. The impingement was slight. Kerry and Gen. Dempsey did almost all of the talking. Hagel was content with silence except for an occasional misstatement of fact (the Pentagon had to walk back his claim that Russia supplies Syria with chemical weapons). Presumably, Hagel was under orders to
Former Vice President Dick Cheney reluctantly commented today on the rift between his two daughters Liz and Mary Cheney, saying that he was surprised that Mary, who is lesbian, and her wife attacked Liz on Facebook. “We were surprised that there was an attack launched against Liz on Facebook, and wished it hadn’t happened,” Cheney said at the National Press Club. “It’s always been dealt with within the context of the family and frankly that’s our preference.” After Liz Cheney, a candidate for Senate in Wyoming, made comments on Fox News Sunday indicating that she supports a “traditional” definition of marriage, her
DETROIT -- A judge has given Detroit the green light to cut pensions as a way out of the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history, a decision that puts the case in the laps of thousands of retirees who had hoped that the Michigan Constitution would protect them from getting smaller checks in their golden years. Judge Steven Rhodes said the city is eligible to stay in bankruptcy court and scrub $18 billion in debt, about half of that amount linked to underfunded pensions and health care obligations. But he also warned officials that they´ll need to justify any deep
CAIRO — The century-old home of Egypt´s mummies and King Tutankhamun´s treasures is trying to make the best out of the worst times of political turmoil. But the Egyptian Museum is taking a hammering on multiple levels, from riots on its doorstep to funding so meager it can´t keep up paper clip supplies for its staff. The museum, a treasure trove of pharaonic antiquities, has long been one of the centerpieces of tourism to Egypt. But the constant instability since the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak has dried up tourism to the country, slashing a key source of revenue.
This pony is raring to go. Two days before its official unveiling, blurry images of the 2015 Ford Mustang have been leaked on an enthusiast website. A member of the SVTPerformance.com forums has posted several photos of an early copy of the December 9th issue of Autoweek magazine featuring the car in a cover story. You can click here for a link to the website. If authentic, the car in the photos looks very much like many of the speculative renderings that have been circulating in recent weeks, and sports a modern take on the signature Mustang fastback design.
Frank DiPascali, a 33-year employee of the firm that ran the largest Ponzi scheme in recent history, took to the stand to testify against his former colleagues. Frank DiPascali, the Bernie Madoff henchman who won the role as the star witness in the biggest fraud case in American history, torched five of his former colleagues with his testimony Monday in federal court. Perhaps more important, DiPascali is the first witness to demolish the myth that Bernard Madoff ever had a legitimate investment advisory business. The star witness also pulverized Madoff’s assertion that he had acted alone in constructing the biggest
Chris Davis´ miraculous game-winning 100-yard field goal return for a touchdown will go down as the greatest finish in Iron Bowl history. It´s the type of finish that a fan wants to remember forever, if it means taking a commemorative photo, storming the field, or even scattering the ashes of a loved one following the game. In Alabama, college football is life and death, and following the Tigers´ incredible 34-28 win over the Crimson Tide on Saturday, one fan scattered the cremated remains of a loved one on the turf at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
