Sarah Palin To Barack Obama … Honor MLK By Not Playing The ‘Race Card’

Former Alaska governor and GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin took the opportunity today to ask President Barack Obama to honor Martin Luther King Jr. by ending the racial divide and stop playing the race card.  Some how I do not see that in the cards. Barack Obama, the community agitator is that for a reason and they don’t call him the Divider in Chief for nothing. Not play the race card, what do you expect Obama to do, tell the truth?

Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin seized Martin Luther King Day as an opportunity to lob vague criticism at President Barack Obama.

“Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card,” Palin wrote Monday on her Facebook page, after quoting from the civil rights icon’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech.

Obama said in an extensive New Yorker profile published this weekend that he believes “there’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President.”

Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC Following Disgusting Comments Made about Sarah Palin

HE’S OUT …  Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC.

Another one bites the dust at MSNBC; however, this time it was a resignation. The Politico is reporting that MSNBC’s  Martin Bashir has resigned following the controversy and uproar started when the BSNBC host made sick and disgusting remarks toward former Alaska governor and GOP Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Bashir had been on vacation since making the offensive comments and was forced to make an apology after he called Palin on air  “a world class idiot”  because she made a comparison to slavery while discussing U.S. debt to China and an even more vulgar slave punishment comment after that. All that and he still was not fired by NBC.

MSNBC daytime host Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC following controversial remarks he made about Sarah Palin, MSNBC president Phil Griffin announced on Wednesday.

“Martin Bashir resigned today, effective immediately. I understand his decision and I thank him for three great years with MSNBC,”  Griffin said in a written statement. “Martin is a good man and respected colleague  — we wish him only the best.”

In his own statement, first published by Mediaite, Bashir announced that he had tendered his resignation following a meeting with Griffin and “further reflection” on his controversial remarks, in which he suggested that the former Alaska governor be forced to endure slavery-like conditions.

In 1756, he records that “A slave named Darby catched eating canes; had him well flogged and pickled, then made Hector, another slave, s-h-i-t in his mouth.” This became known as Darby’s dose, a punishment invented by Thistlewood that spoke only of the slave owners savagery and inhumanity.

When Mrs. Palin invoked slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms that if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate.

It really does beg the question, how does one resign and not get fired for such offensive, planned comments made on air, unless the network agrees with the comments, but just can’t take the heat? Bashir hasn’t been on the air since November 22. MSNBC said he was on a pre-planned vacation, but it appears the vacation has turned into a resignation. MSNBC and parent company NBC still have literally taken no public action against Brashir for his comments. How amazing was the lack of punishment against Brashir for his vulgar comments, even Lefty Alec Baldwin had to question why he was fired and Brashir was not.

The Other McCain has other low-lights of Brashir’s past comments which the suits at NBC had no issue with either. And here are some others.

Statements from Brashir and Phil Griffin:

Martin Bashir: “After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments. I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers – who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.”

MSNBC president Phil Griffin: “Martin Bashir resigned today, effective immediately. I understand his decision and I thank him for three great years with MSNBC. Martin is a good man and respected colleague – we wish him only the best.”

Good man and respected colleague, eh?

Hmm … Mark Halperin Says Obamacare Contains “Death Panels” … Where Have We Heard that Before, Sarah Palin? (VIDEO)

AMERICANS LIED TO AGAIN BY BARACK OBAMA ON DEATH PANELS …

Mark Halperin says the following on “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV, “It’s built into the plan. It’s not like a guess or like a judgment. That’s going to be part of how costs are controlled”.

More at TPM, one of the Beltway’s best-known pundits gave credence this week to perhaps the fringiest of all Obamacare conspiracy theories … death panels. But is it really a conspiracy theory? Didn’t Barack Obama also tell us that if you liked your healthcare plan, you could keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! Didn’t Obama tell us we could keep our doctor and hospital as well? Didn’t Obama promise us that premiums would go down? ALL WERE LIES THAT OBAMA KNEW WERE LIES!!! So what would make anyone think now that the “death” panels, i.e. end of life healthcare rationing were not true as well? Barack Obama hardly has a track record of telling the truth. What was Obama and his minions going to do in getting this bogus law passed and prior to the 2012 presidential, tell the truth that bureaucrats would kill off grandma as they waged a war on the GOP that Republicans wanted to push her off the cliff? Hardly. Obamacare was passed on the intentional deceit of the White House and all that dare get in its way are say anything bad were attacked. How’s that “Hopey-Changey” death panels working out for you America?

“We do need to do some of that in this country, because we can’t afford to spend so much on end-of-life care. A very high percentage of our healthcare spending is for a very small number of people at the last stages of their life,” he said Monday.

“I’m not saying the system shouldn’t allow that, but there’s too much cost. There’re judgments have to be made.”

Partial Transcript from Real Clear Politics:

MALZBERG, HOST: A lot of people said you weren’t going to be able to keep your health care, but also they focused on the death panels, which will be coming, call them what you will, rationing, is part of it…

HALPERIN: No, I agree, and that’s going to be a huge issue, and that’s something else on which the president was not fully forthcoming and straightforward.

MALZBERG: So, you believe there will be rationing, a.k.a. death panels?

HALPERIN: It’s built into the plan. It’s not like a guess or like a judgment. That’s going to be part of how costs are controlled.

Remember when Sarah Palin said there were death panels in Obamacare 4 years ago and was vilified? Now suddenly Democrats are admitting that Sarah Palin was right. Oh how that must pain liberals and Democrats. Suddenly 22 Dems and counting are agreeing with Sarahcuda. Think about that America, the woman that Democrats love to hate was right on “DEATH PANELS”.  Just curious, is ‘Palin Derangement Syndrome (PDS), covered under Obamacare?

Sarah Palin Cancels Interview With NBC’s Matt Lauer In Protest of the Lack of Action Taken Against MSNBC’s Martin Bashir for His “Violent & Hateful Rhetoric”

Looks like Matt Lauer will not be getting extra frequent flyer miles to Wasilla, Alaska …

Sarah Palin has canceled an upcoming interview with ‘The Today Show’s’ Matt Lauer due to NBC’s lack of taking any action against MSNBC’s Martin Bashir for his vile, disgusting,”violent and hateful rhetoric”.  Bashir was forced to apologized to Palin and his 10 viewers Monday for his comments in which he called “totally unacceptable,” when he said someone should $hit in her mouth and piss in her eyes for her comparison of slavery to the national debt. Hmm, can you really apologize from making such a comment? Palin is upset that Martin Bashir has received “ZERO” punishment from the network, not termination, not a suspension, not a slap on the wrist, nothing! Just a lame apology. If Brashir actually had the intellectual honesty and listened to Palin’s comments, she is 100% correct. The out of control $17 trillion debt and climbing will put our children and grandchildren in fiscal chains.

Hmm, who is it again that has a war on women? Just curious, where is NOW? Imagine if a male on FOX News said the same about a prominent Democrat woman, think they would still have a job? Maybe if more conservatives stopped doing interviews on NBC News channels because of the insane rantings of their moonbat affiliate MSNBC, the network would actually attempt to make MSNBC actually perform in a professional manner.

It’s no secret that Sarah Palin is mighty steamed at MSNBC and Martin Bashir over his despicable remarks about the abusive treatment he imagines for her.

And now she’s doing something about it.

The former Alaska governor was scheduled to sit down with Matt Lauer for a Christmas season interview. That’s now toast.

Palin has now canceled Lauer’s scheduled trip to Wasilla, a source close to her tells me. It’s not because Palin is upset with Lauer or the “Today” show, but as a protest against NBC for not taking action against Bashir. In fact, Palin once sat in as a “Today”co-host.

Tim Crawford, treasurer of Palin’s political action committee, had told NBC News President Deborah Turness and MSNBC President Phil Griffin that “Americans deserve to know that your network doesn’t condone violent and hateful rhetoric.”

Conservative Radio host Mark Levin tears apart Brashir, his comments and MSLSD

Conservatives 4 Palin have an update that former Clinton Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers has called for NBC to get rid of Bashir.

Sarah Palin Considering 2014 US Senate Bid for Alaska

Hey Alaska, How’s That Obama, Democrat beholden “green” energy Senator stuff working out for ya?

Sarah Palin has been making a lot of news lately and opened the doors to many opportunities. The former Alaska governor told Sean Hannity during an appearance on his radio show that the door is open to her running for the US Senate in Alaska in 2014.  Currently, Democratic freshman Sen. Mark Begich holds the office which borders on the absurd for Alaska, a state so rich in oil and resources, while they have a Senator who is beholden to the radical LEFT, anti-fossil fuel Democrats in the Senate and President Barack Obama. At present, two Republicans have already announced challenges to Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and 2010 GOP nominee Joe Miller. Anything is possible, but Palin would have to battle the LEFT as she would have a political target on her and the establishment GOP as well. However, one thing is for certain, in a state like Alaska where Romney beat Obama in 2012 Presidential election,  55% – 41%, there is no way that Alaska should have a Democrat representing their best interests. Sarah Palin recently also commented that she would be open to start a third party if Republicans continue to not act like Republicans. Well, who wouldn’t?

Sarah Palin’s interview on the Sean Hannity Radio Show

Sarah Palin opened the door Tuesday to running for Senate next year in Alaska.

“I’ve considered it because people have requested me considering it, but I’m still waiting to see what the lineup will be and hoping that … there will be some new blood, some new energy,” the former governor told Sean Hannity during an appearance on his radio show.

Two Republicans have already announced challenges to Democratic freshman Sen. Mark Begich: Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and 2010 GOP nominee Joe Miller.

“We’d meet with any Alaskan interested in challenging Mark Begich,” National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesman Brad Dayspring told POLITICO, “and Governor Palin is right in that Begich abandoned his campaign promises — most notably by being the deciding vote on ObamaCare — and must be repealed and replaced.”

A poll conducted by Harper Polling in May 2013 found Sarah Palin leading other Republican primary contenders to face Begich in 2014. Don’t let the liberal MSM BS you, Palin would win the Senate election for Alaska.

More from The Hill:

“I’ve considered it because people have requested me considering it,” she said. “But I’m still waiting to see what the lineup will be and hoping that … there will be some new blood, new energy, not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state.”

Palin said she has a “heart for service” and would consider returning to politics if she could “help the cause.”

Could Sarah Palin and Mark Levin Leave the Republican Party and Creating a New One Called the “Freedom Party?”

If Sarah Palin and Mark Levin create the  “Freedom Party” it is not because they left the Republican Party, it is because the Republican Party left them.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin responded to a Fox News Channel viewer’s Twitter question Saturday about the possibility of creating a new political party called the “Freedom Party” with fellow conservative and talk show host Mark Levin. Palin floated the idea of crating a new party if the GOP continues to abandon its conservative principles. Personally, I am not too far away from telling the establishment GOP to take a hike myself. The Republican party has turned into the RINO party where they have produced continued moderate, wishy-washy presidential candidates like John McCain and Mitt Romney. It was conservatives and the Tea Party vote and enthusiasms  in 2010 and won the House for the GOP. Since then the establishment, elitists Republicans have fought conservatives every inch of the way.

Tuesday’s elections were seen as a crucial moment for measuring the staying power of the Tea Party movement, which was born out of frustration with the political establishment and steeped in economic anxiety.

“I don’t think there’s any question that if it were not for the Tea Party, the Republican margin in the House of Representatives would not be as high as it’s going to be,” CNN senior political analyst David Gergen said Tuesday night. “They gave a lot of enthusiasm and fuel to the Republican Party.”

Now we are witness to Republicans like Marco Rubio, who claimed to be a conservative, and the other back stabbing Republicans who voted for the Senate bill on immigration where they thumbed their nose at the rule of law and created an amnesty bill. It is not Obama or Democrats that have ruined the GOP, it is the establishment republicans who have done so, putting your personal power ahead of country and principles.

Enough is enough Republican Party, you are about to go the way of the Whigs  if you keep it up. More and more I actually think that a third party is the way to go because the establishment Republicans are really no different than Democrats. Big government progressives are progressives no matter what party affiliation they belong to.

The Daily Caller:

I love the name of that party — the ‘Freedom Party,’” Palin said. “And if the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and Reagan, then yeah, more and more of us are going to start saying, ‘You know, what’s wrong with being independent,’ kind of with that libertarian streak that much of us have. In other words, we want government to back off and not infringe upon our rights. I think there will be a lot of us who start saying ‘GOP, if you abandon us, we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in a one or the other private majority parties that rule in our nation, either a Democrat or a Republican.’ Remember these are private parties, and you know, no one forces us to be enlisted in either party.”

UPDATE I: Some web sites that used to once be credible when run by James Joyner, think that we are “true believers” because we actually believe in holding politicians to their word. Go figure. No one said forming a third party was easy. In fact, if one was ever formed the GOP would probably become a “super” minority in government. But at some point one has to either vote for their principles or vote in political whores who cannot be trusted. Marco Rubio and Bob Corker ran on securing the border before any talk of pathway to citizenship. Of course that was before they were elected. Why would either of them wonder why they are being looked upon as turn-coats and backstabbers? Hmm, from The Atlantic 2006, Corker says he is against illegal immigration.

In Tennessee’s Senate race, meanwhile, Democrat Harold Ford takes a hard line on border security. One of his television ads says, “Harold Ford Jr. will get control of our borders, get tough on illegals and employers who break the law.” His Republican opponent, construction company owner Bob Corker, calls Ford a phony. A Corker ad claims that Ford “votes against border security and against putting troops on the border, then says he wants to fight illegal immigration.”

In the video below, Rubio says we have a significant illegal immigration problem in this country. We have to balance that we are a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws. Its just too bad his Senate Gang of 8 bill was just pandering to illegals and no upfront border security.

Remember when Rubio cared about the rule of law and the US Constitution?

At some point when a party no longer is principled and can be believed as to what they say they will do, let alone serve the people they represent, what else is there but to create something that will? Just ask the Whigs.

Sarah Palin Says Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) Should be Primaried for their Support of the Senate’s Immigration (Amnesty) Bill

Actions have consequences and Elephants have long memories …

As reported at Breitbart.com, Sarah Pain “Throws Down Gauntlet” and ’stated that U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) should be primaried in 2016 for their support for the Senate’s Democrat lead Amnesty Immigration bill. I agree 100% and that goes for any Republican in the Senate or House that supports amnesty, breaking the rule of law and allowing individuals who entered the United States illegally more rights than law abiding Americans. Sadly, being inside the beltway in Washington, DC  corrupts the best of them. Rubio and Ayotte are just two of the most recent to lose their way and forget the promises they made to get elected. I idea that Republicans would fall for the same BS bill 1986 under Ronald Reagan is simply astonishing. One that never enforced the borders, even though the bill promised to. The difference, Reagan stated it was one of the biggest mistakes he ever made, these two clowns along with other GOP Senators are embracing it as if Lucy is actually not going to pull the football out from Charlie Brown as be goes to kick it. Palin and the Conservative base are going to make examples out of the Judas’ in 2014 and 2016.

“Conservatives are getting ready for the 2014 and 2016 primaries. We have long memories, and there will be consequences for those who break campaign promises and vote for this amnesty bill,” Palin told Breitbart News.

“Competition makes everyone work harder, be better, and be held accountable. This applies to politics, too. No one is ‘entitled’ to anything.”

She continued, “Rigorous debate in competitive primaries allows candidates the opportunity to explain their flip-flops. So think of contested primaries as a win-win for politicians and their voters.”

Palin responded to Breitbart News’s request for comment about an interview she did earlier on Tuesday with John Gibson on Fox News radio in which she said Rubio and Ayotte “turned their back” on voters and should be primaried to be held accountable. Rubio and Ayotte will be up for reelection in 2016.

Sarah Palin went on to say that politicians need to be held accountible for their actions and the promises they made to get elected. Palin said Rubio had promised that “border security would come first,” and he would not support “legalization of illegal immigrants” and “amnesty” before border security. What a difference an ego makes. Boy that didn’t take long for Rubio to learn the back-stabbing, lying ways of Washington. Sarah Palin said in her interview with John Gibson, that one time I did say good things about Marco Rubio as I thought he was an honest politician. Well, we all know better now.

Video Hat Tip - Conservatives for Palin: Sarah Palin Interview with John Gibson

Palin responded to Breitbart News’s request for comment about an interview she did earlier on Tuesday with John Gibson on Fox News radio in which she said Rubio and Ayotte “turned their back” on voters and should be primaried to be held accountable. Rubio and Ayotte will be up for reelection in 2016.

“Every politician should be held accountable for breaking their campaign promises,” Palin said during an interview on the “John Gibson Radio Show” on Fox News radio. “They turned their back on the American public, so why should they not be held accountable?”

Palin said Rubio had promised that “border security would come first,” and he would not support “legalization of illegal immigrants” and “amnesty” before border security while running in the Florida Republican Senate primary against Charlie Crist in 2010. She said Ayotte, whom she endorsed, had on her campaign website in 2010 that there were “no excuses” not to secure the border and also said she would not support amnesty.

As for Rubio, you have lost my vote forever.
