Sarah Palin´s profile might not be as high as it was a few years ago, but she apparently still serves as a convenient punching bag for the left. On today´s Morning Joe, as Joe Scarborough railed against the allegedly "stupid" arguments NRA leader Wayne LaPierre made on Fox News Sunday yesterday, Mika Brzezinski muttered "something Sarah Palin would say." Consider that Palin had been in no way quoted, nor had her position on gun control been discussed. This was nothing more than a gratuitious shot at Palin, obviously still a bogeyman for the MSM.
The leftist retards are absolutely terrified of Sarah Palin and the NRA! Both entities represent conservative and traditional values of the United States which is abhorrent to these people. As a result they will never miss an opportunity to slam or slander Ms. Palin or the NRA.
The hysterical left does not understand that the issue is not guns, per se. It is about the Constitution. They don´t understand that their leadership is really on a quest to take away citizen´s rights (more than just the Second Ammendment), in order to advance a far-left political agenda. They don´t understand that rights are taken away a little at a time, using rhetoric that sounds so logical and plays to emotions. They also don´t understand that guns are not the only issue used for the quest. Peoperty rights, environmental laws, regulations, and all the other things. The Low Info Voters are asleep, while they are slowly losing their rights.
Mika is not fit to clean Sarah Palin´s gun! I love it that the left is so afraid of Palin,Cruz,Rand Paul,DeMint,Walker,Ryan,Rubio,Perry & West. Our main challenge in 2016 will be Hillary Dillary & someone better bring up her college thesis on Alinsky & do it today. We also better start on 2014 for the Senate. All you 3rd Party people better wake up & stay with only conservatives who can explain to America how to save our Republic. I wish Palin could do it again but we may have to do with Rubio since Rand Paul is good but personality is not great. Tea Party & prayers are needed!

Mika also apparently doesn´t see the need to take note of current events. If she did, she would know that an armed security guard at a school prevented an armed crazy from shooting up a school just last week. And guess who said that armed security at schools would be a good idea Mika. Why it was none other than the same Wayne LaPiere that you just slandered. The same one who´s ideas your demi-god Zippy said would never work, just two weeks ago. Now go back to the liberal echo chamber and listen to your own brillience.
The left heard loud and clear that Sarah will once again be pushing to primary liberal Republicans in 2014. This means Tea Party folks will once again be called to duty. The left hates the fact that Sarah hasn´t been destroyed. In their sick minds, if you destroy her and you destroy the Tea Party. Rove and company also heard Sarah´s plans and share Mika´s sentiments entirely. Ted Cruz scares them all.
IIRC, Mika also refuted the quark structure of protons and neutrons by calling the idea "stupid."
Speaking of physics, let´s borrow the Thought Experiment process. Imagine that Mika B. is in all respects exactly as she is now, but her name is Mary Barlow. Now -- exactly how much TV time would Mika-as-Mary have had in 2012?
Oh, it appears the Alinski´s rule #13 is being used against LaPierre...
RULE 13: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
LaPierre needs to recognize this and tell the world that is what the Libtards are doing. Hit back using the same tactics...nothing stops attacks quicker than making the attacker accountable, by name!
Mika is just such a pathetically sad caricature: a 50-something aging feminist-- whose own daughters drive her bananas--the Ed McMahon to goof-ball Joe Scarborough. I can´t wait to see the psychic melt-down when her frantic race against time catches up with her. Anyone get a gander at Gloria Steinem lately? Mika: meet your future self. Sarah Palin will grow old gracefully. You, my dear, will undoubtedly continue to play the fool, and end up looking like a clown as well.
Just checking in to see if the usual Sarah detractors are defending Mika. The article notes Sarah had not been quoted or her position on gun control discussed, but that´s one of the wonderful things about Sarah, you don´t even have to ask what her position on gun control is - she´s been living it for years.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid delivered a striking mea culpa on the Senate floor Friday as he opened the chamber, saying he and his colleagues have simply gotten too personal and nasty in their floor debates. A day earlier Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, had scolded Mr. Reid for attacking Sen. Ted Cruz, another Texas Republican, by name as they debated the government shutdown. Mr. Cornyn read directly from the Senate Rules that prohibit members from impugning each other’s motives or conduct. Mr. Reid on Friday said it was a lesson all senators, including himself, should learn. “I’ll work harder
Most of the Obamacare horror stories I’ve heard fall under the category “amazing, but not surprising.” But I confess that this one, from a friend, surprised me: True story: I was talking to my fitness trainer on Wednesday about Obamacare. He is a 38 year-old with three boys by his first marriage. Of late he has a second wife, who has her own insurance through her job, covering just her. He has insurance as an individual. He got a letter from his insurance company cutting him off, and saying he’d have to look elsewhere after Dec. 31. So he started looking.
Republicans on Friday were furious over a Wall Street Journal report that the White House believes it is “winning” the shutdown fight. “This isn’t some damn game,” said House Speaker John A. Boehner. “The American people don’t want their government shut down and neither do it.” Publicly the White House, too, says the shutdown isn’t about winning. Press secretary Jay Carney said that on Thursday. But the Wall Street Journal reported that a senior administration official said: “We are winning…It doesn’t really matter to us” how long the shutdown lasts “because what matters is the end result.” Republicans and Democrats
Government services across the US may have all but ground to a halt, but there is one that remains open for business as usual: the Presidential paradise of Camp David. The woodland retreat has stayed immune to the shutdown because it falls under the aegis of the Department of Defence, whose staff are designated as active-duty military personnel. More than 250 chefs, gardeners, electricians and anybody else who keeps the camp running in Catoctin Mountain Park in Frederick County, Maryland, should the President drop by are not only still working, but are also getting paid, according to website TMZ. Meanwhile,
Republicans on Friday seized on an unnamed senior administration official’s comment that “it doesn´t really matter to us” how long the government shutdown lasts, “because what matters is the end result.” Republican offices circulated the comment, published in Friday’s Wall Street Journal, with a spokesman for Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) incredulously asking “it doesn’t matter?” The spokesman in a separate email listed "things that don´t ´matter´ to the White House," including veterans´ benefits, food inspection, and scientific research all halted during the shutdown. Brad Dayspring, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, attributed the quote in a tweet to a “compassionate
Regulations issued by the Obama administration this week would require members of Congress to buy one of the top-tier insurance plans from the ObamaCare exchanges. The Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) of the House sent guidance to members of Congress this week, based on a directive from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), that says they must choose plans from the "gold" level of insurance coverage, not "bronze" or "silver" plans. "Platinum" is the only higher level of coverage under the exchanges. "For plan year 2014, Members of Congress and designated congressional staff will choose from 112 options in the Gold
A recent spate of high-profile shootings at South Side parks has drawn attention to a little-publicized police strategy to work with neighborhoods to retake public spaces. Historically, parks and playgrounds have been community anchors where residents meet and children come to swing, climb on the jungle gym, learn to throw and dribble balls, and fall off their training bicycles. But the recent violence -- this week´s shooting that injured three teens in Merrill Park and last month´s shooting at Cornell Square Park that wounded 13 -- has framed play areas as gang strongholds. That´s where Operation: Wake-Up! comes in. Its
The Lawrence motorcyclist struck and paralyzed as a desperate SUV driver tried to escape the rage of other bikers in New York on Sunday has a six-page criminal record that began at age 12 with a negligent driving charge and includes jail time for drugs, guns, resisting arrest and other convictions, according to court records. Edwin Mieses, 32, never got a driver’s license in the Bay State, the Registry of Motor Vehicles said, but he was frequently nabbed behind the wheel, and even sentenced to jail for driving without a license, court records show. Mieses has a pending case out
Leaders of America’s largest teachers unions are joining teachers in 170 countries to urge political leaders to invest more in K-12 education around the world. The campaign is organized by Education International, an umbrella group of unions representing 30 million teachers, and will be announced Friday in New York with United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown. “The whole premise is that every single child ought to have access to a free, universal, quality education,” said Dennis Van Roekel, president of the National Education Association, the country’s largest teachers’ union. “There´s not a country in the world where
LONDON- Britain´s Daily Mail newspaper will tell you that many things you eat can give you cancer, global warming is probably bunk and the British way of life is under threat from pernicious Eurocrats in Brussels. The Mail is Britain´s most polarizing paper, and one of the most powerful. To fans, it´s the voice of old-fashioned British values and the enemy of meddling bureaucrats and stultifying political correctness. To critics it´s a sensationalist, small-minded rag that demonizes feminists, foreigners and the poor. To politicians, the Mail is a formidable force whose blessing can help deliver crucial swing votes and whose wrath
Fear not the shutdown, Republicans in Congress! You are the supposedly conservative alternative in politics, and we are currently $16 trillion in the hole. The least you can do is stop spending so much money everyday to keep the vile beast going. Also, as the supposedly conservative alternative, you should be thrilled that all the "non-essential" bureaucrats have been sent home while our military remains at post. For most of us innocent taxpayers, this suits us just fine. The only people who should be scared are the big government enthusiasts when the vast majority of Americans realize they didn´t even
STAMFORD- A Stamford woman was shot and killed after trying to ram her car into a White House security barrier and leading police on a high-speed chase past the Capitol with her 18-month-old daughter in tow. Miriam Carey, 34, of 114 Woodside Green, drove her black Infiniti coupe onto a driveway leading to the White House, and over a set of lowered barricades. When Carey couldn´t get through a second barrier, she spun the car in the opposite direction, flipping a Secret Service officer over the hood of the car as she sped away, said B.J. Campbell, a tourist from
Get ready for Chelsea Clinton Bump Watch 2014 — the only daughter of the former president and former secretary of State is declaring next year the “Year of the Baby.” In an interview for the November issue of Glamour magazine on her work with the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, Clinton reveals that she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are planning for a bouncing addition to their household. According to the 33-year-old Oxford grad, the pair, who married in 2010, sat down together a year after tying the knot and made a list focused on their future, saying, “We want,
Tom Hanks is already declaring his presidential pick for 2016, there’s just one, small problem: a little thing called term limits. The star of “Captain Phillips,” told ITK at the soon-to-be-released film’s Wednesday premiere at the Newseum in Washington, “I’m voting for Barack Obama — 2016.” A laughing Hanks, who supported Obama during his 2008 White House bid, added, “Yes, I am! Four more years.” The Academy Award winner, 57, plays Captain Richard Phillips in the flick, based on the seaman’s book on the real-life 2009 hijacking of his cargo ship by Somali pirates. Hanks told ITK it was an
President Obama told CNBC’s John Harwood that while he’s been president, he’s “bent over backwards to work with the Republican party.” Obama boasted: During the course of my presidency, I have bent over backwards to work with the Republican party. I think I’m pretty well known for being a calm guy. Sometimes people think I’m too calm. And am I exasperated? Absolutely, I’m exasperated. Because this is entirely unnecessary. I am exasperated with the idea that, unless I say that, ‘Twenty million people, you can’t have health insurance,’ these folks will not reopen the government. That is irresponsible. The President asserted that he’s
In case there´s any doubt as to who´s to blame for this outrage, a spokesman for National Park Service said the White House Office of Management and Budget ordered up the blockades.Even Bill Clinton didn´t have the audacity to try such a thing during the 1995 government shutdown.As the AP reported at the time, "tourists were free to wander the halls of the Capitol, touch the walls of the Vietnam Memorial and climb the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to read the Gettysburg Address — those and other similar sites don´t require supervision of federal employees." This isn´t the first time
More than a dozen House Republicans who want to drop attempts to undermine the health-care law and reopen the government are meeting among themselves and with House Speaker John Boehner -- and he’s listening. For the past few weeks, Boehner’s hand has been guided by a group of Tea Party-aligned Republican House members who’ve urged little compromise in their three-year drive to undo the 2010 Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Now, the agitation is coming from the other side of the caucus. A bipartisan group of about 40 House lawmakers are holding private talks to find a compromise
Despite an emergency meeting at the White House, congressional leaders reported no progress late Wednesday on trying to reach a budget deal -- while over on Capitol Hill, tempers were flaring and lawmakers were melting down on the floor of the House. The top four congressional leaders took a stab, during an hour-long White House meeting, at negotiating with President Obama over the impasse. There was no breakthrough. House Speaker John Boehner emerged saying he had a "nice, polite conversation" but complaining that Obama would not budge off his demand that Congress pass a straight budget bill -- one that does not
Because Barack Obama was elected on a campaign promise of “fundamentally transforming” the United States, and because our nation then proceeded to lose much of its international influence and domestic economic dynamism, it is easy to say “this is intentional. It’s just what he wants.” Yet while Obama might, in his heart of hearts, not bemoan the loss of jobs and economic growth at home, and American power and prestige abroad, ascribing it to an intentional effort gives Obama credit for qualities and skills he does not possess. Neocon David Horowitz entitled a recent fundraising letter for his Freedom Center “Urgent: Is
DALLAS —In a shopping center parking lot 1,300 miles from Washington’s bureaucracy and bickering, teen mom Karina Luciano loaded a watermelon and baby formula into her car. Luciano didn’t realize the federal assistance program that just purchased the food items for her children, Aimee, 2, and Jaiden, 11 months, is now in jeopardy because of the government shutdown. “Oh my god, I think I’m going to cry,” Luciano said upon learning the news. “This is really bad.” Nearly 9 million low-income mothers and children receive benefits under the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children. Congress’ inability to
The shutdown battle has become, essentially, a high-stakes blame game.(snip)But in a note to clients, Potomac Research Group´s Greg Valliere says that President Obama still has one "trump card" of his own left to play, Social Security: THE HEAVY ARTILLERY: We have thought for weeks that Obama would play the Social Security trump card if there was no deal on the debt ceiling by mid-October. This is one of several reasons why we think a default is unlikely, and it´s one of several reasons why Boehner will capitulate; the only questions are when and under what terms. We think he may
Ted Cruz faced a barrage of hostile questions Wednesday from angry GOP senators, who lashed the Texas tea party freshman for helping prompt a government shutdown crisis without a strategy to end it. At a closed-door lunch meeting in the Senate’s Mansfield Room, Republican after Republican pressed Cruz to explain how he would propose to end the bitter budget impasse with Democrats, according to senators who attended the meeting. A defensive Cruz had no clear plan to force an end to the shutdown — or explain how he would defund Obamacare, as he has demanded all along, sources said. Things
The revisions downward begin. Yesterday, Obamacare exchanges were melting down because of the intense interest in signing up. All the citizens were flooding the gates for all the insurance! Why, in California there were 5 million visitors. No technologist could prepare for such an onslaught. Here’s what really happened: California’s health insurance exchange vastly overstated the number of online hits it received Tuesday during the rollout of Obamacare. State officials said the Covered California website got 645,000 hits during the first day of enrollment, far fewer than the 5 million it reported Tuesday. The state exchange had cited the 5 million figure as a
The bizarre attack at the White House and Capitol today was reportedly perpetrated by a 34-year-old dental hygienist licensed in Connecticut. Miriam Carey, who was killed by law enforcement after ramming White House barricades and fleeing to the Capitol, had a toddler in the car with her, according to New York Post reporting: Sources said Miriam Carey, who formerly lived in Brooklyn, was licensed to practice in New York and Connecticut and had a permit to work as a hygienist in Connecticut prisons. At least a dozen gunshots were fired when she tried to flee cops, who had trapped her two blocks
