Sarah Palin´s Low-Budget TV
Channel Is Pricier Than Netflix

Atlantic, by Conor Friedersdorf

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/28/2014 10:15:40 AM

Sarah Palin is returning to her roots in low-budget television—but this time, she´s on the web, the focus is American politics, and she owns the network. The Sarah Palin Channel launched Sunday, asking prospective viewers for $9.95 per month–96 cents more than Netflix–or $99.95 a year. (No word on whether subscribers get money back if Palin decides to stick with the project for only half of that term.) The cost is the same as GBTV, the web-TV channel run by Glenn Beck, a role model for wealthy media figures who hope to monetize the cult of personality they´ve built up

Comments:
Is that a current photo of Palin? She looks scarily thin. Anyone know?

Interesting to see the dem point of view from the extremely leftist Atlantic. They really have a bad case of Palin Derangement Syndrome over there, it seems.

I haven´t joined, yet; but, I did log on to the site. I strongly recommend you Ldotters whom hate Governor Palin, log on and read the ´Discussion´ section, if nothing else. The comments on that page identifies, very well, the type of people whom hate her.

And, just a reminder: You are known by the company you keep Ldotters.

# 13 - Thanks. It is easy to identify the haters and one wonders why so many snarky comments have been made. She accomplished much without a ´silver spoon´, had the highest ratings for any sitting Governor in the United States, accomplished what she promised she would do in office plus much more but yes did resign when people like some of the posters to articles about her filed the frivolous lawsuits and tried their best to personally bankrupt her and her family.

One wonders WHY after 6 years passing when she was selected to be the First Female Vice-President of the United States on the Republican ticket there remains so much animosity and snarky comments directed at her personally. Is it because those posting the negative comments have failed in their endeavors where she has succeeded. Comments are against her on a personal basis it seems as never have comments been made about her ability in political life.

Shame on the 8 to 10 who continue with their TACKY comments who also only post negative articles.

The same people and same blood lines and same mentality that hated Reagan--- east coast liberal secular modernist pseudo-sophisticated Ivy league connected or wish they were --- that same closed minded and self serving mentality exists here. Dismissing her as a celebrity, as a person in it for power and money, that´s what your predecessors did with Reagan. And yet, when the establishment has been successful, it has only been by promising more of Reagan, as in 1988, bringing a Reaganesque agenda to the legislature in 1994 or 2010, or by pretending to be more like Reagan than his old man, as Bush did in 2000. Running away from Reagan got you killed in 1992 and left you out in the cold in 96, 08 and 2012. You remain a decade behind in your message, your technology and your loyalty to the failed status quo. Rather than dismiss Governor Palin´s efforts at bringing the message to the masses, as the RNC coven is prone to do here daily not only with Palin but with Limbaugh, acknowledge her brilliance, just as a young woman did in the mid nineties, using the internet to foster conservative thought and discussion and unite conservatives. Palin understands, as Reagan did, the coming technologies and is ahead of the curve. Dismiss her as a celebrity, damn her with feint praise as someone who has found her little niche, she is ahead of the curve and has found a way to bypass the mainstream and corporate funded media and get the Conservative message out in real time. Now consider what happens when she simulcasts in espanol.
Too bad she´s not as smart as you are.
They hated Reagan then, they can´t acknowledge the substance of Palin

Sarah Palin never did a hurtful thing to any one posting on this thread, yet she is treated so poorly by some of you. Search your souls and ask yourself; are you jealous of her? After all she is beautiful, savvy, clever, discerning, artful, CHRISTIAN, patriotic, politically astute....and more. And she espouses what most of us here believe and want for our country. So what´s your problem? A year´s worth of all of that for $100 sounds like a deal!

The attorney for a man who tried to kill himself after setting a fire at a Federal Aviation Administration facility in Aurora said Monday that his client made a “tragic mistake” that “inconvenienced many, many people.” But attorney Ron Safer pleaded for the public to have compassion for the “deeply troubled man” whose actions paralyzed national air traffic. “On Friday morning, Brian [Howard] tried to take his life. That he did so in a way that inconvenienced . . . many, many people is unacceptable and he deeply regrets that,” Safer said after Howard made his first appearance in U.S. District Court.

By now, you’re probably familiar with the fact that some people in the US refuse to vaccinate their children. You are probably also familiar with the raging debate over vaccine refusal and whether parents should suck it up and vaccinate their kids for the sake of herd immunity, the common good, and society. But a recent piece in the Hollywood Reporter by Gary Baum really cuts to the heart of the vaccine refusal issue: It’s a class and privilege problem. The people refusing to vaccinate are primarily wealthy, coming from backgrounds of privilege, following in the footsteps of their wealthy and

The federal government is giving an ObamaCare insurance navigator Seedco, which has a reported history of fraud, $1.4 million to operate in Tennessee this fiscal year. Last year, Seedco received $1.2 million for the same services in Tennessee. As reported, the federal government sued Seedco on the grounds it faked at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with New York City. Seedco, according to National Review, had to settle that lawsuit. Meanwhile, state Comptroller Justin Wilson reported last year certain Memphis residents participating in the Temporary Assistance For Needy Families program falsified paperwork and wrongly received almost

GOLDEN, Colo. - Hundreds of suburban Denver high school students missed school again Monday as teachers shut down two high schools by calling in sick amid a controversy over proposed changes to an Advanced Placement history class and changes to their pay. Classes were canceled at Golden and Jefferson high schools after 81 percent and 70 percent of teachers called in sick respectively. Some students who had the day off hit the street to protest against a proposal from the board´s new conservative majority to review the history course to make sure it promotes patriotism and doesn´t condone social disorder.

HONG KONG -- Hong Kong´s leader said China won´t back down from its decision to limit voting reforms in the Asian financial hub as pro-democracy protesters set a Wednesday deadline for a response from the government to meet their demands. The unequivocal statement from Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying on Tuesday dashed hopes that the standoff between demonstrators and authorities could be resolved quickly through negotiations. It does not come as a surprise given that showing a willingness to talk would have made the Chinese leadership appear weak, which could embolden dissidents, critics and separatists on the mainland.

Behind bars in the same jail as the ‘Public Enemy No. 1,’ the Jane Doe seemed to succeed at erasing her fingerprints where Dillinger had failed. But cops still unraveled her baffling story. The cops in Ohio did not know it when they struggled to fingerprint her, but their prisoner would prove to be a mystery woman who would seem to outdo Dillinger. After what one cop called “a heck of a fuss,” they finally managed to print her. They were stunned by the result. “There’s nothing there,” a cop announced. The prisoner had somehow managed to obliterate every identifying swirl on the tips

Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp launched the investigation of the New Georgia Project earlier this month after receiving “numerous” complaints regarding applications submitted by the group, including forged signatures and applications. The investigation has turned up 33 fraudulent applications thus far, ahead of the thousands of pages of documents set to be turned over. The group is run by

BERLIN—There are many subjects of German soul-searching. Among them: Is the country saving too much water? People here are known to flush toilets with old bath water and to take turns bathing in the same tub without refilling it. New German toilets typically use about two gallons of water for a full flush and less than one for water-saving. Conserving water is an expression of personal virtue and social responsibility. But as scholars, utility managers, and municipal officials point out, there is a dark side to the impulse. Sewage stagnates in too-large canals and noxious gas is corroding cement.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A Northern California judge ruled Wednesday against a Silicon Valley billionaire who had shut down public access to a beach beloved by surfers and swimmers, ordering him to reopen his private road to the beach. San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Barbara Mallach ruled that venture capitalist Vinod Khosla would have to obtain permission from the California Coastal Commission if he wished to close off Martin´s Beach, a secluded stretch of coast south of Half-Moon Bay.

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside.

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House
