Palin’s Next Step
National Review Online, by Katrina Trinko

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/18/2013 8:06:10 PM

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin proved again today that she has the chops to thrill a conservative crowd like almost nobody else. In her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Palin delivered a series of snappy one-liners and pointed jibes, aimed both at liberals and the GOP establishment, that earned her plenty of applause and cheers. But the clearest sign of Palin’s real power was the man on stage before her: Texas GOP senator Ted Cruz. Cruz, who surprised the crowd by introducing Palin, noted how crucial her endorsement was in his Texas GOP primary

Nice rack, and funny, too. She has a great future ahead of her as a Reaganesque speaker and cheerleader for the cause.

If Palin ran for Alaska Senate seat in 2014, would she win against the democratic encumbent?

Not a Palin fan. #8 sounds a lot like the intolerant left who shuns anyone who disagrees with them. Palin´s comment about her ´rack´ got taken exactly as she expected. I don´t appreciate the redneck shtick she uses because I really believe she is smarter than that so it comes across very phony to me but obviously she has a lot of people falling for it.

I´ve noticed National Review is nothing like it used to be.

I am a Palin fan because I can read. I researched her record and background. She is an American hero who has no real political connections.

Palin got where she did without family wealth, or sleeping her way to the top, or marrying a sleazy and powerful husband, without granting favors or ignoring corruption in her own party, no Ivy League privileges, without well-connected mentors or high-status friends, and without membership in the Bushes´ elite little group of which the toad Bill Clinton is a beloved member.

It´s why I have no respect for those on the right and left who continue to mock a woman about whom they know absolutely nothing. Over the past few years, I found out that Republicans like Noonan and Rove, people I used to like and admire, are actually very base and not very intelligent.

Poor Peggy hates Sarah Palin to such a painful degree that she thrashed through her Rodale´s to find the most demeaning, juvenile term she could find so she could publish a column of lies and faux-intellectual scorn and name-calling (you know, what bullies do).

Noonan and Rove, and many others, obviously are not aware of the most basic facts about Palin´s life and record.

#15...you are right on the Schtick, everybody has one and that is what makes people individual one from another. It´s what makes actors, comedians, politicians, you and me different. Too bad the naysayer here can´t comprehend that.

I was shocked when Rove bashed Sarah about quitting her job. He´s also trashing the "New Crew", Rubio, Cruz, Paul, etc. I used to like him but now because of a low class slimey despicable thing to say about fellow Republicans, I no longer respect him.

I am appalled at the people who still have no clue to the true reasons Sarah stepped down and I´m sorry but I consider those folks totally ignorant of reality.

Disagreeing with Sarah on politics and policies is one thing, but the hatred and personal attacks are by those who love to advertise their parents were totally incapable of teaching their child manners, courtesy and respect.

I don´t wait for people to earn my respect, I respect everyone until they prove they don´t deserve it. I have as much respect for Liberals and the President as I would have in electing a child molester as "Father of the Year".

Mrs. Palin misused her CPAC national spotlight to do an imitation of late-night comedy. The "rack" joke was graceless and tacky. It diminished her. Those who are still dreaming of Sarah Palin actually getting into a political race, and doing the work necessary to win, will be forever frustrated. It´s not going to happen.

Chris Christie: Republicans don´t get anywhere

Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/1/2014 8:44:33 PM     Post Reply
Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.” Krauthammer did use

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
