Governor Sarah Palin is the greatest and most strategic political genius of our time.
She has always reminded me of Artemis from Greek mythology, in that she is an expert hunter and setter of traps…which the idiots in the Orwellian Ministry of Truth (MiniTru) that is our statist national media always fall into. Palin is forever several steps ahead of MiniTru and everything she does is calculated to make her detractors come unhinged and provide maximum exposure and impact. What she does is actually something that could be considered “trolling”…which is the term used when someone cleverly dangles bait to entice targets to excitedly react exactly the way she wants.
I have missed seeing Palin out on the campaign trail because no one else in American politics causes MiniTru meltdowns the way that she does. She is a wonder to behold when she is firing on all cylinders, as she was when endorsing Donald J. Trump for president in Ames, Iowa.
Here are the top 5 most genius moments from her endorsement speech (and what her strategy could be in setting these traps for MiniTru):
Back in 2008, following Obama’s less than compelling reaction on the campaign trail to Russia invading neighboring Georgia, Sarah Palin remarked that Ukraine could be next. The left attacked her, mocked her, called her comments “strange” and “far-fetched”.
Today, the scenario is very real. Russia’s puppet parliament just voted unanimously to approve military action against Ukraine. This after paramilitary forces, likely of Russian origin and backing, have already seized government buildings and airports within the Crimean region of Ukraine.
Which means, all those fawning, sycophantic, Obama-protecting liberals… all those self-righteous, self-described “experts” on foreign policy… all those talking heads on the television were WRONG.
Sarah Palin was right, folks.
I wonder which of those supposed experts has the guts to admit it.

Governor Sarah Palin excoriates “former neighbor” Joe McGinniss as a liar. Again. It seems he wrote some cockamamie book where he accused someone of murder, but the guy was innocent. He was probably drunk at the typewriter just pounding at the keys with his nose again. I don’t know the man, but his writing “skills” lead me to assume this is how he completes his manuscripts.
Last year I suffered through McGinniss’ book on Sarah Palin, you know, the one he wrote when he stalked her family and her for a while up in Wasila, Alaska. McGinniss would stand on a balcony of the house he rented and would try to peep into Piper Palin’s windows and would gawk at the family if they were outside in the backyard. It got so bad that Todd had to call some buddies over to put up a fence to keep McGinniss from staring at the children when they were trying to play or go swim in the lake. McGinniss’ own son even publicly asked his father to stop, because it was all so creepy.
The book that resulted from the stalking was amateur at best, but was mostly just the sort of ravings that would have been scribbled on bathroom walls in another age. “Exclusive sources” for the book included people who were angry at one or more of the Palins for one thing or another on a personal level; some of them felt slighted because they used to be friends but “hadn’t heard from them in a while”, and so they decided to badmouth them. I think I’d forgive a friend of mine if she didn’t have much time to write long personal letters to me anymore after she ran for Vice President of the United States and became one of the most sought-after speakers on American freedom and energy independence in the country.
I have not written about Governor Palin in a while because my focus is on the election and she chose not to be a candidate. That broke my heart more than a little because I want to see her in the White House and think she’d do a lot of good for our country, but God has a plan for us all and the Governor decided hers was not on another national ticket at this time. I respect her decision and am at a point where I accept it. I support Romney/Ryan 100% and have actually come to the point where Mitt himself has really grown on me. I kind of like the guy. He will make a good president, and Ryan will be a great VP. It is my fervent hope that Governor Palin becomes the next Secretary of Energy if she so desires because I think if anyone could bring us closer to energy independence, it is her.
What an absolute piece of garbage Joe McGinniss is. A sick and twisted old man who peeps at the windows of little kids and who stalks a family in order to write a book that ended up not being the least bit interesting. And then we find out he falsely accused someone of murder. Whatever will he get up to next?
Here’s a great way to spend today: check out what’s happening at the online event known as GRIZZLYFEST 2012.
The adorable Adam “N-G-F-ski” Andrzewski is one of the featured speakers.
Our friends at Conservatives4Palin will, of course, also be livestreaming Grizzlyfest.
If you’re going to be home catching up on things, why not put Grizzlyfest on while you’re doing your chores or relaxing today? It took a lot of hard work and creativity to put this online event together so I am going to try to catch as much of it (if not all of it) as I can and hope you consider doing the same.
Todd Palin has thrown his hat in the ring…for Newt Gingrich. It may not be as explosive as an endorsement from Sarah but it’s the next best thing and some people are saying that Todd may be speaking for the entire Palin family so it could go a long way in helping Newt’s numbers…especially in South Carolina.
I am still baffled by the silence of the Tea Party. I read several articles today that said that the Tea Party wasn’t well organized on a national level and was fractured on who to throw their support behind. Most felt like Herman Cain was the man but, obviously, many were disappointed by how that turned out. There isn’t one central “leader” of the movement so different Tea Party groups are supporting different candidates. Some like Rick Santorum…some Rick Perry…some Newt Gingrich but none are publicly behind Mitt Romney. Perhaps the Tea Party, at this moment in time, will function best on a local level…helping to elect conservative candidates to the House and Senate. Who knows?
I think that having at least one Palin behind Newt will draw in some of the Tea Party crowd…hopefully.
I really like Todd Palin….a lot.
Very interesting comments by Sarah Palin on the GOP field going into Iowa.

As you all know, I’m a Ron Paul supporter. Have been for years. However, I also love Sarah Palin. I love that she took on the corruptocrats in Alaska–in both parties–and won. I love how she sold the governor’s jet on eBay. I love how she raised five kids while running a huge state. And I love how she leads the media around by the nose. But most of all, I love how she makes Leftists like Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann explode into misogynistic frenzies and reveal themselves as the raging hypocritical sexists that they are.
Sarah Palin has a track record of kicking ass, taking names, and not giving a sh*t what the Democrat-controlled media thinks.
Just like Ron Paul.
There are ongoing efforts by Sarah Palin supporters to get her to reconsider her decision to not run for president. However, I personally think it’s a moot point. She has missed the deadlines to appear on the ballot in several of the important early caucuses and primaries….as the presidential candidate.
But VP candidates don’t “run” for the office of Vice President in the primaries. They’re put on the ticket relatively late in the game.
So lately I’ve been having this secret fantasy about a Ron Paul/Sarah Palin ticket. I don’t know how much they have interacted, but she has supported his economic views on several TV appearances…and like Ron Paul, she has the cojones to wade into the cesspit that is Washington, D.C. and clean house. She was relentless in cutting graft and corruption in Alaska, so I imagine she’d be pretty good at it in Washtingon, too.
And this election is going to be all about the economy. Every single poll that has come out in the last 12 months shows that the American people are screaming, “It’s The ECONOMY, STUPID!” The only real objection most conservatives have to Ron Paul is his non-interventionist foreign policy. It would be interesting to hear Sarah Palin’s take on it, given her son Track’s military service.
The Democrat-Controlled Media is obsessed with Sarah Palin. They can’t stop talking about her. But their strategy in dealing with Ron Paul is to pretend that he doesn’t exist. (A Pew Research Center poll revealed that Rick Perry gets the most media coverage, and Ron Paul gets the least.)
So I think it’s interesting to ponder on how the media could pile on to Sarah Palin, while simultaneously never mentioning the man at the top of the ticket.
Here are just a few things Sarah Palin and Ron Paul have in common:
Ron Paul and Sarah Palin are both pro-life. They’re both people of faith. They both have incredibly strong families.
They both appear to be fundamentally decent and kind people, and clearly, they both love America.
They’ve both run for office numerous times before, and presumably, any possible skeletons have been dragged out into the sunshine.
They both have rabidly enthusiastic bases of support. Easily the most energized volunteers.
And both of them care more about their families and American than politics or running for re-election. However, both have learned to work with principled Democrats.
Both Ron Paul and Sarah Palin are hated by the Cocktail Party GOP. Both Ron Paul and Sarah Palin are loathed by the Democrat-Controlled Media.
Neither Ron Paul nor Sarah Palin would spend a moment pandering to either one.
So here’s my question for you, Dear Reader. What are the flaws in my fantasy football Dream Ticket? Let’s do some armchair vetting (which is more than Obama got in 2008).
How could the Paul/Palin ticket encourage GOP and Independent turnout? How could it suppress Obama/Biden turnout?
If Ron Paul announced Sarah Palin as a running-mate, would you vote for him in the primary?
Would you vote for Ron Paul and Sarah Palin in the general election?
What kind of attacks could they expect from the Cocktail Party?
What kind of attacks could they expect from the Democrat-Controlled Media?
What kind of attacks could they expect from Obama? How would they react?
I’d love to hear your take on this, Sarah Palin fans!
It’s getting colder and colder in Hell these days.
Last week, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh endorsed Ron Paul’s plan to slash the federal budget by $1 trillion, eliminate 5 unconstitutional departments, and roll back federal spending to 2006 levels.
This week, GOP Frontrunner Sarah Palin is giving Ron Paul’s non-interventionist foreign policy a thumbs-up.
“You’ve got to give it to Ron Paul. Whether you agree with everything he says or not, at least he is one there in Congress trying to make our President stick to the law and understand that Congress does have a role to play in these foreign policy decisions that are made and Ron Paul, I think hit the nail on the head, when he came out and said Obama had better be careful when he interjects himself and our country in other nations’ business.” — Sarah Palin
I know there are some of you who won’t read this post on principle, because the name of GOP Frontrunner “Ron Paul” is in the headline.
I’d like to submit to you that unless you’ve made up your mind about GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul after reading about all his positions, and comparing them with the output of the current occupant of the White House, you’re just being manipulated by the Cocktail Party GOP and/or the government-controlled media.
Seriously. If you actually have a visceral emotional reaction to the name Ron Paul, ask yourself where that visceral reaction came from. If you’re afraid, it’s probably thanks to the government-controlled media and public school system, which never taught you critical thinking skills.
If you’re angry, you’re probably wearing a blue blazer and khaki pants, sitting next to your cucumber and mayo sandwich, waiting for that call from the Romney campaign to tell you when the next Cocktail Party is scheduled.
Journalists and editors overwhelmingly vote for Democrats. So, when you listen to “news” stories about GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul (or indeed, any other GOP candidate), it’s as though you’re letting the Democrat National Committee pick your candidate for you.
I can’t emphasize this enough.
Mainstream Media Democrat National Committee shoves Mittens Romneycare down my throat, and gives just 2% of its news coverage to GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul, I become even more interested in what Ron Paul has to say.
Especially when, despite the ongoing media blackout, Ron Paul is #3 in fundraising among GOP candidates (just $5 million behind Rick “I Heart Illegals” Perry), and has won or placed second in over a dozen straw polls of active grassroots republican voters, including the Big Three: CPAC, the Iowa Straw Poll, and the Values Voters Straw poll.
- Finishes 2nd in the New Hampshire Straw Poll
- Wins the CPAC Straw Poll
- Wins the Phoenix, Arizona Tea Party Straw Polls
- Wins the Republican Liberty Caucus of California Presidential Straw Poll
- Finishes 2nd among currently running candidates in the St. Anselm College Republicans Straw Poll
- Wins the New Orleans, Louisiana Republican Leadership Conference Straw Poll
- Wins the Clay County, Iowa Republican Party Straw Poll
- Finishes 2nd in the Iowa Straw Poll, by less than 1% of the vote
- Wins the New Hampshire Young Republicans Straw Poll
- Finishes 3 votes behind winner Herman Cain in the Georgia State GOP Straw Poll
- Wins the post-debate Cincinnati Tea Party Straw Poll
- Wins the California GOP Straw Poll
- Wins the Values Voter Straw Poll
- Wins the Los Angeles County Straw Poll
Mainstream Media Democrat National Committee continues to black out this story. Or when they do refer to GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul, they call him “unelectable,” which is an interesting adjective choice for someone who has been elected to his seat in Congress eleven times.
Hmmm. It’s almost as though the
Mainstream Media Democrat National Committee doesn’t want people to know about GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul.
Why could that possibly be?
Governor Sarah Palin has delivered an impressive speech in St. Louis at the “Defending the Republic” event that gives us an idea of her plans going forward and what role she’ll play in the 2012 elections.
You can watch the whole thing here at PalinTV.com
When I get home tonight, I’ll do a full write up on this, but please comment in this thread below with any thoughts you have on the speech.
I know many are still disappointed and even angry the Governor chose not to run for President in 2012. I, too, am disappointed because I know what an excellent President she would make…but I respect her decision and know she is doing what she believes is best for the country.
I think, personally, she made a mighty sacrifice for the country in that she’s giving up a chance to be President herself just so the Left can’t gin up its hate machine against her to give Obama any chance at re-election.
I remain an admirer and supporter of Governor Palin and appreciate her continued leadership in speeches like today’s where I see her laying out her strategy for 2012.
Different than what many of us wanted, but impressive, needed, and appreciated nonetheless.
No doubt Kevin DuJan will have his reaction once he can get in front of a computer.
Hillbuzzers, what’s your reaction?
