Credo And A Hiatus

As Governor Palin has advised she intends to spend the primary season campaigning for Congressional and presidential candidates that invalidates the original premise of this site "Palin4President 2016. In respect of the current title "Palin-ism in The Presidency 2016" the premise becomes more of a philosophical one and I have decided it is best covered at my general blog "A Point of View" where it fits in better with overall political/economic/philosophical matters.

This is/never was a "fan site" although I have enjoyed over the years presenting interesting coverage of the Palin family and their adventures. Further there is little point  in cutting and pasting such things from other sites as they are readily accessed at the original laces like 'Conservatives4Palin" Breitbart and etc.

I will leave this site up as there are hundreds of visitors daily to the archives and I trust they find the reference items of value. If matters change with Governor Palin I will of course renew the original title. With all this I am delighted that Governor Palin seems to be in a very happy space doing what she seems to enjoy most of all which is helping others and presenting her Christian based values to the wider public. 

It's a pleasure to see she has outlasted all the haters and genuinely mad alleged humans who have taken out their frustration with their unhappy lives, physical appearance and failures on someone who is so happy, healthy  wealth and living a life of excitement and adventure! Not bad for a fisherman's wife from a small town in the far reaches of Alaska!

Here is my credo on the matter;

This site is not absolutely about Sarah Palin regardless of the Blog title. Of course I, and I am sure a massive number of others, judging by her Facebook followers being over 3 million, would wish her to run in 2016.

But Palin is only one person, and a person with massive family commitments, especially with Trig of course. It may be that she has developed a taste for the freedom from financial constraints and from media criticism worries, and is happy to enjoy the rest of her life in comfort and ease.

If so, good for her. Surely nobody else in public life has endured the slings and arrows of outrageous leftism over the last seven years and would be entitled to such a respite as her skills and endurance has gained for her.

There are of course many options for public involvement open to her. She will be in demand as public speaker for some time yet as an historic figure at least.

Palin can of course continue endorsing and campaigning for candidates she considers it important to do so. Her influence as an endorser is undiminished as e.g Ted Cruz in Texas will testify Sasse and Fischer in Nebraska etc etc can testify.

But even if none of these options appeal to her (which I doubt) this blog would change from Palin4President2016 to "Palin-ism In The Presidency 2016". No matter how great or influential and correct a person's political, social and economic  ideas and ideals are, they will outlive their originator if they have lasting value.

The "common sense conservatism" policies that Sarah Palin espouses and exemplifies, are lasting if not timeless and will be her legacy no matter what her personal future holds. An outline of  what she, and this site stands for are

In the meantime, unless or until Palin herself  advises she will cease any activism which might lead her to make a run for office, the blog title will stay as it is. Should she decide to leave the political scene then a simple change of emphasis from the person to the policies the person espoused will suffice. 

If Palin chooses not to run in 2016 but endorses a candidate
enthusiastically then, in that person "Palin-ism in the Presidency" comes into effect. Thus, in effect, Palin herself is the candidate and can be said to be running.

As for myself I have enormously enjoyed writing about Palin for all these years, don't regret a moment of it (except for having at times to dialogue with obsessed idiots from the likes of "Immoral Minority.) I have through this site honed my writing ability, such as it is and have had many articles published at major avenues. 

Most of all I've enjoyed the company of many wonderful, intelligent and dedicated people and for that above all I thank Governor Palin.

From Breitbart's Kevin Scholla;"PALIN WOMEN MASTERFULLY CALL OUT ERICK ERICKSON, FOX NEWS ON TRUMP-KELLY FLAP

From the brilliant Kevin Scholla at Breitbart

PALIN WOMEN MASTERFULLY CALL OUT ERICK ERICKSON, FOX NEWS ON TRUMP-KELLY FLAP

After being disinvited from a RedState event over the weekend, Donald Trump called RedState’s Erick Erickson “a major sleaze and buffoon who has saved me time and money.” The Donald may be on to something.

Erickson, a RINO on steroids could best be described with an old Ralph Kramden line. “I’ve seen some hypocrites in my day but he is the hippiest critic I have ever seen,” Jackie Gleason once quipped on The Honeymooners. Now Erickson’s latest comments are being taken to task by Bristol Palin and her mom, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The two completely expose the ridiculousness that is political correctness with a big Bang, Zoom.
In her popular blog, Bristol Palin blasts Fox News for its Republican presidential debates last week and she chides Erickson for calling Trump a sexist.
Palin wrote: “It’s official. I used to use this blog to point out how liberals use the ‘outrage industry’ to manipulate people and keep their power. Now Republicans are just as bad.”
By now you’ve undoubtedly heard that there’s a guy named Erick Erickson, of RedState, who disinvited Donald Trump from a gathering of conservatives because, as he put it, “there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross. Decency is one of those lines.” Erickson bumped Trump from the event after a war of words between Mr. Trump and Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
After the second GOP debate Thursday, Trump said, “you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her whatever.” Some took that as a dig at Kelly’s menstrual cycle. Erickson used it as an excuse to dump Trump. Kelly, a former guest on Howard Stern’s program, who also posed for pictures in GQ magazine while scantily clad was suddenly the poster woman for the fictitious war on women.
That liberal logic was picked apart masterfully by Palin. She wrote : Want to learn some “lessons in sexual and political decency” from Erickson? Here are three:
Palin listed just a sample of Erickson’s hypocritical comments and actions over the years. His use of a fake picture of her mother wearing a revealing shirt with Santa Claus, his profanity laced description of Supreme Court Justice David Souter, and a tweet from 2007 in which Erickson seemed to get his kicks off of Trump bashing Rosie O’Donnell on Fox–one of the very things Trump was slammed for in the recent GOP debate.
Palin also gave specific examples of Fox hypocrisy. She ripped the network for host Chris Wallace joking about hoping Sarah Palin would sit on his lap, and included a quote from Fox News President Roger Ailes in which he said he hired the former vice presidential candidate “because she was hot and got ratings.”
As for that former veep nominee, she is on board with her daughter evidenced by her promotion of Bristol’s Blog through social media. Sarah Palin provided a link to her daughter’s blog on Facebook with the intro of – “Rocks and glass houses don’t go together when you’re playing PC gotcha games, so please spare us the holier than thou routine. Read Bristol’s post on how hypocritical this ‘trumped up’ outrage is.” Both Palin women agree Fox should be ashamed to have asked Mr. Trump about his history of demeaning comments on women during the debate. It’s hard to argue with their commonsense stance.
Bristol Palin’s blog gives a tidy wrap-up of just how ridiculous so many so-called Republicans and “fair and balanced” news outlets have become. “We only have so many opportunities to hear from the fifty million candidates who are apparently running for President. And we get the Fox moderators asking questions that the New York Times applauds?” Palin said. “Please. Let’s don’t use the Democratic ‘war on women’ talking points when we have ISIS to worry about.”
“Fox and Erickson need to get off their high horse on how outraged they are NOW about sexism and decency,” Palin added. “Let’s focus on winning the election, not winning accolades from The New York Times.”
We will surely see and hear plenty more from the PC brigade and “outrage industry” as Palin puts it before the 2016 race is decided, but on this day the score is clear. Mama grizzlies- 1 RINOs- 0.

Gov.Palin Again Defends Trump: "Hypocritical "Trumped Up" Outrage"

From C4P

The New GOP “Outrage Industry:” Lessons in Decency from Erick Erickson and Fox News

08-10-15_Sarah_Palin_Hypocritical_Trumped_Up_OutrageIt’s official. I used to use this blog to point out how liberals use the “outrage industry” to manipulate people and keep their power. Now Republicans are just as bad.


By now you’ve undoubtedly heard that there’s a guy named Erick Erickson, of RedState, who disinvited Donald Trump from a gathering  of conservatives because, as he put it, “there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross.

Decency is one of those lines.”
Want to learn some “lessons in sexual and political decency” from Erickson?  Here are three:
1.  Erickson’s RedState once used a demeaning fake photo (wearing a revealing shirt with Santa Claus) of my Mom for an attack article on her.  Erickson refused to take it down even after he was made aware that it was photoshopped.


2.  He once called Supreme Court justice David Souter “the only goat f****** child molester to ever serve on the Supreme Court.”
We only have so many opportunities to hear from the fifty million candidates who are apparently running for President.  And we get the Fox moderators asking questions that the New York Times applauds? 

Please.  Let’s don’t use the Democratic “war on women” talking points when we have ISIS to worry about.


Mark Levin said the debates were an “embarrassment as far as I’m concerned… while the New York Times and CNN praised the event, I considered it an exploitation of the process, which is supposed to inform the American people.

Not gotcha questions, not gossip… I think the American people are owed an apology.  (read more at Bristol’s Blog)

The Inside Story Governor Sarah Palin paid a quiet visit to the good folks at One America News Network this week.

From Free Republic
Sarah Palin Visits with One America News Network

Governor Sarah Palin paid a quiet visit to the good folks at One America News Network this week.








One America News Network is headquartered in San Diego. This conservative alternative to Fox News has been slowly gaining ground from Fox News viewers.





The first hint of Governor Palin’s visit was innocuous enough.

Nothing more than a simple tweet noticed by long time Palin watcher DeeDEEthree

Any mention of Governor Palin in Southern California was reason enough to grab my attention.

Quickly piecing together the few clues in Mr. Roach’s vague tweet led me to San Diego, OANN host Tomi Lahren, and a tantalizing connection to One America News Network.

By late Tuesday afternoon, all suspicions of Governor Palin’s visit to the One America News facilities in San Diego were solidly confirmed when OANN news anchor Cassie Leuffen revealed that Governor Palin had paid her a visit in studio.




Notions that Governor Palin’s visit with One America News were nothing more than a casual visit were laid to rest the very next day when Palin showed up again at the OANN facility, this time spending time with Assistant Producer Maggie Lit, who was surprised by the Governor’s presence at the network for a second day.






The true purpose of Governor Palin’s extended visit with personnel at One America News remains unknown at this time.
