This is nicer than the actual cover (because I clipped off a weird remark they made under this)…but whoever thought up the Lady and the Trump headline deserves a shiny sticker for punchy cleverness. I’m sure the article inside is horrible.
I can’t even describe how fun it is watching all the Leftists I know in social media having apoplectic fits this morning. Governor Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump yesterday has precipitated an epidemic of a previously unknown kind of bipolar disorder in the Left.
Stage-A = the Leftists mock Palin, post video clips of her and call her crazy, and then they kind of cackle and hyperventilate.
Stage-B = I think they tire themselves out…and then the pendulum swings rapidly in the other direction emotionally and the hysterical laughter turns to dread as the thought creeps into their heads that “She’s going to make him win Iowa, and if he wins Iowa he could be the nominee…and if he’s the nominee he could win.” And that leaves them momentarily paralyzed with frost-fingered fear.
Stage-A, Redux = But then they are back swinging on the reverse-pendulum to hysteria/mania again. Lather, rinse, repeat.
All of this transpires back and forth within minutes. I’ve never seen anything like it before with the trolls I study and monitor on Facebook. I know people say this sometimes and they are only kidding, but I literally made popcorn to snack on as I watch these people lose their ever living minds.
The two people in the world who seem to drive the Left the craziest here in 2016, together on stage, saying things that political correctness has forbidden anyone to say in my adult lifetime.
It’s just such a great day to be an American. And to eat popcorn for breakfast, apparently.
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):
You can watch the endorsement live here on ABC from Ames, Iowa (530pm CST on 1/19/16).
Sarah Palin is a national treasure, she really is. Nearly everything she does makes me smile and gives me hope that America has a chance to rebuild and recapture our greatness. I love her “going rogue” spirit that just gobsmacks the Cocktail Party GOP-establishment.
There was an article a few days ago on a site called The American Interest by Walter Russell Mead called, “Andrew Jackson Revenant.” It’s not a great article, because Mead ultimately takes an unfavorable view of Americans and reveals himself to be a Leftist would-be elitist…but he makes a few interesting points, perhaps unintentionally. The big takeaway from this article is that Mead identifies a “Jacksonian” spirit in Americans that is ascendant in the suddenly vocal “Silent Majority.”
For the last 8 years or so, it’s become evident that something has been happening in this country that frightens the elites…though it’s been hard to identify exactly what that is and to give it a name. Maybe it’s been brewing even longer than that…it might even have its roots back to the circus that was the Clinton Impeachment and all the Ken Starr unseemliness. For a while, it was called the Tea Party spirit but it’s bigger and more important than that. I only felt a part of this beginning in 2008 when my eyes were opened to it during the media’s relentless (and shameless) push to elect Barack Obama…and ever since then I’ve been paying attention to how out of touch the elites are in both political parties in this country…and how much regular Americans despise these people in Washington.
It was always obvious that the far-Left was completely out of touch and that those living in the ivory towers of academia were insane; for my entire lifetime that was the case, but until 2008 those lunatics were kept locked in the attic for the most part. Democrats knew they had to seem like centrists back then, but we all know they long ago stopped caring about optics and there’s a very good chance that an elderly socialist will be the Democrats’ nominee for president this year. On the Republican side, I think it became clear in 2012 that the Cocktail Party GOP-establishment would rather lose elections than elect Republicans to office who were not part of the accepted “club.” Nikki Haley is a great example of someone who is installed in a position of power and then completely changes who she is because she likes being in power so much and listens to the people who tell her not to upset the apple cart.
Americans are truly and deeply disgusted by people like Haley…and all the consultants who tell Republicans they must appear “moderate” if they want to win elections (even though moderates like John McCain and Mitt Romney lost their elections). The Cocktail Party GOP-establishent this year tried to force Jeb Bush on everyone, but since that is not working now they are trying to force Marco Rubio on us. At some point, they might even switch to Chris Christie as a backup. The Cocktail Party never gives up.
But, the American people are fed up and in Mead’s article he likens this attitude to “Jacksonian revival.” While he doesn’t think this is a good thing, I happen to think it’s exactly what the country needs.
For decades, the Left and the Cocktail Party elite have been destroying this country economy and decimating the middle class. It’s sometimes hard to wrap our heads around fully, but the elite in both parties really have the same goals: they want to enslave Americans economically, eradicate American culture, import enough uneducated foreigners to completely change the demographics of this country, impoverish the country, and erase American traditions like the First Amendment Right to Petition so that “Future Americans” are a different species of people who are scared of the government and are terrified of challenging it.
Political correctness has severely damaged this country in Orwellian ways. The Cocktail Party is terrified of even talking about that. If America is to become great again we need to eradicate political correctness and cultural Marxism. That is mission critical and priority number one.
Now that Mead has mentioned it, I can see the Jacksonian framework in that. I also really enjoyed a lot of what was said in an article by Michael Brendan Dougherty in The Week, called “How an obscure advisor to Pat Buchanan predicted the wild Trump campaign in 1996.” Again, this was written by a Millennial who holds Jacksonian Americans in obvious contempt, but at least he’s smart enough to see that there’s something really happening here.
Trump resonates because he wants to put native born Americans first and is sick to death of gimmegrants (my new favorite term for Third Worlders who pore across our border and then demand the United States support them for the rest of their lives).
Trump is sick of political correctness and says what the rest of us in Jacksonian America have waited our entire lives for a leader to say.
Trump doesn’t care if the media or the elite like him.
Trump isn’t bothered when the Left makes fun of him.
Trump is patriotic, loves America, and believes this country has the potential to become the greatest in all history.
Trump is against the colonization of the West by the Third World and Islam.
Trump does not support the federal government ruling our lives from Washington.
It’s wonderful to see Sarah Palin come out for Trump today. I hope she campaigns hard for him. Palin really is an important historical figure, right up there with Andrew Breitbart and others in the 2008-2010 time period where this Resistance to the Left and Cocktail Party began. I rank Palin up there with Betsy Ross and Ben Franklin and Paul Revere and George Washington as people who are synonymous with the American spirit. I tend to think of that spirit mostly in the Revolutionary days…but now I’ll have to adjust my thinking and include Andrew Jackson in that as well. There is a uniquely American soul that is evident in all these people, where they are unafraid to speak their minds and they believe the government should fear the people and not the other way around.
I have felt for a long time that Americans are hungry for leadership like this and for an attitude like Trump has shown so far. I hope he is seriously considering making Sarah Palin his Secretary of Energy so she can go to Washington with him and start cracking skulls.
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.
How to Drive the Left Nuts: Vote like CRAZY for Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas on Dancing with the Stars tonight! #BristolsBlog #MarkBallas
Do you want to drive the Left crazy tonight by taking about 15 minutes out of your evening to do something fun that will make lefty heads explode tomorrow?
How about helping to keep Bristol Palin dancing with the stars for another week?
Here are the four ways you can vote for Bristol tonight, starting at 7pm CST and continuing until 9pm CST:
1. Calling — 1-800-868-3409
2. Texting (only for AT&T customers) — Text the word VOTE to the number 3409
3. Voting online at ABC.com — VOTE HERE
4. Facebook voting — facebook.com/dancingwiththestars
Here’s more on how the voting works via the show’s website.
The trickiest one is to vote via ABC.com because Disney owns that site and Disney makes registration needlessly cumbersome. You need to actually create a free registration with Disney linked to an email account and then you need to remember your login and password. I actually created five registrations for this site and have been using all five to vote for Bristol the maximum number of times I could. I keep the logins and passwords written on a little slip of paper that I taped to my computer so that I don’t lose this and will have it ready each week.
I suggest you do something similar. Once you vote the maximum number of times, you logout and then login as the new account and vote the maximum amount again…and then do it as much as you want.
At the same time, I also call in as many times as I can for Bristol using our land line, my cell, and my boyfriend Justin’s cell phone too. I have all my friends call as well. I think our little group of voters is about 60 people strong at this point and we all vote the maximum amount for Bristol each week on the phone. Justin has AT&T so he can text for Bristol, and he does that as much as he can too. I think you are allowed to vote 11 times this week per number.
Then you can vote 11 times per Facebook account as well!
Vote as much as you want…and in fact vote like you are Democrats in Chicago voting in an actual election! Vote in the name of dead people, household pets, imaginary friends…go nuts!
Why this matters:
The entire Palin family enrages the Left just by continuing to exist because Democrats did everything they could to personally destroy these people.
Remember how the Left, and the Obama campaign itself, went after young, sweet Bristol herself?
Remember when David Letterman joked about Alex Rodriguez raping Willow Palin at a Yankee’s game in 2010?
Remember when the Left repeatedly mocked Trig Palin, a baby with Down Syndrome?
Remember when sicko lunatic Joe McGinniss stalked Piper Palin and tried to peek in her windows when he moved next door to the Palins two summers ago?
I can’t forget either. That’s why I am voting for Bristol as much as I can and will encourage everyone I know to do so. Every week I can help keep Bristol dancing with the stars is a way of swatting back at the Leftists who tried to destroy her and her siblings just because Obama was afraid of her mother. The longer Bristol is on the show…the crazier the Left will get and the more apoplectic fits these nutters will throw because they just can’t boot a Palin off the show the way they so desperately want.
So, please vote as much as you can and please ask everyone you know to do so as well. This really does matter because taking 15 minutes out of your night this evening will do more damage to the Left’s psyche than you could ever begin to imagine.
Please chime in below with your take on the show and any other good ideas for helping to keep Bristol Dancing with the Stars until the final three again this year!
Happy Monday everyone! I realize that the Limbaugh / Fluke story is just about dead, but I saw Sarah Palin post a video calling out the hypocrisy of the way Maher speaks about women on a regular basis. Maher, of course, is defended or even PRAISED by the left.
I seriously want to ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz how long it takes her to put on all that hypocrisy in the morning.
What Say You?!
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.

I take grassroots activism for granted, as a Ron Paul supporter. During the 2008 campaign, Ron Paul people like me launched the Money Bomb concept, and the Tea Party movement…heck, we even rented a BLIMP for our candidate.
Ron Paul supporters also make our own brochures, t-shirts, our own signs, our own decals, hats, bumper stickers, and websites. We have our own fundraisers, do our own promotional projects, do our own precinct-canvassing, have our own rallies, etc.
And videos…we make a LOT of videos. Here’s my favorite recent one. The production values are professional-quality–and it was just made by some regular Ron Paul peeps. (Content Warning: There are scenes at the end that may cause your mascara to smear, or your monitor to become all blurry.)
The only other GOP candidate I can think of who has this level of grassroots wow-factor is Sarah Palin…who isn’t running for president.
So what makes Ron Paul supporters and Sarah Palin supporters so nutzo for our picks, compared to other campaigns’ supporters?
Everyone seems to acknowledge that among the current candidates, Ron Paul’s fan base is the most enthusiastic and involved. Why are we more enthusiastic than Rick Santorum supporters or Bachmann supporters or Mittens supporters? Is our level of involvement/enthusiasm cultivated by other campaigns?
As a Ron Paul supporter, I don’t know how other campaigns work, or how organized they are, or how active the grassroots are. If you’re a Santorum supporter, or Newt gal or (gulp) a Romneycare voter, please chime in with a report on your campaign’s ground game. Does your guy’s (or gal’s) campaign work well with grassroots supporters? Are there people out there making videos or writing songs or creating brochures for your candidate?
I hope he wins Iowa for a variety of reasons, but first and foremost because Ron Paul has run a stellar grassroots campaign in Iowa. He’s run a campaign there better than anyone and that hard work deserves to be rewarded regardless of what you think of the candidate and his positions.
Most candidates drop by, send some mail, and run lots of television and radio ads. Ron Paul’s team has been organizing door to door in the state. That level of grassroots activity just might pay off and it would be refreshing to see old fashion grassroots pay off.
Do you personally volunteer for your candidate’s campaign? What does that consist of? What’s your sense of your candidate’s “ground game?” How does the campaign treat the grassroots?
