Black Activists Go Jill Stein Green; Major Danger For Dem's



Black activists express vehement support for Jill Stein and the Greens. These election day broadcasts, and the callers into the programs, not only castigated the DNC and the Clinton's in terms stronger than I have heard from conservatives, but appear to have completely moved from the Democratic Party.

If the breach with a growing segment of the Black community is, as it seems, irreparable and the DNC runs another centrist in 2020 (Hillary!) I would firmly believe the Democrats will be in serious danger of becoming a permanent east and west coast rump party and the Greens a significant force.

The Green's commitment to Black activism/activists was signaled with Stein's choice of vice-presidential candidate;

Jill Stein Selects Human Rights Activist Ajamu Baraka as Vice-Presidential Running Mate

p_Ajamu_Baraka.jpgGreen Party presumptive Presidential nominee Jill Stein has offered her vice-presidential bid to international human rights scholar and activist Ajamu Baraka.
 "I am honored and excited to announce that my running mate in the 2016 presidential election will be Ajamu Baraka, activist, writer, intellectual and organizer with a powerful voice, vision, and lifelong commitment to building true political revolution,” Stein announced.
 "Ajamu Baraka is a powerful, eloquent spokesperson for the transformative, radical agenda whose time has come - an agenda of economic, social, racial, gender, climate, indigenous and immigrant justice. Ajamu’s life’s work has embodied the immortal words of Dr. Martin Luther King: Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," Stein continued. "In this hour of unprecedented crisis, we are honored to lift up a unified movement for justice in the only national political party that is not held hostage by corporate money, lobbyists and super-PACs. We look forward to bringing this agenda for justice to the American people in the exciting race ahead Stein said she also discussed the position with author Chris Hedges, single payer healthcare activist and US Senate candidate Dr. Margaret Flowers (Green - Maryland), economic justice advocate and TPP opponent Kevin Zeese of PopularResistance.org, and Green Party activist and former Black Panther Party leader, Aaron Dixon. There had been earlier speculation that Stein would offer the spot to ex-Sanders surrogate and former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner, who had been unfairly spurned at last week’s Democratic National Convention for her principled criticism of the DNC and Hillary Clinton.

Gov.Palin " Sarah Palin on Paul Ryan’s ‘RINO-Care’' ( Fix It by Electing Conservatives)

The fact that Breitbart had a major post from Governor Palin on March 11th criticizing Ryan's healthcare plan leads one to suspect Trump/Bannon knew the Ryan "bill" would fail. It is hard to understand why otherwise Bannon would have allowed such a strong critique.

Where this goes from here is unknown but Speaker Ryan looks an absolute disaster after having had 8 years to craft a working bill.

The administration is stuck with Ryan for the time being as to have a caucus revolt and remove him would cause market turmoil and roil the admin.

 What this portends for Trump's tax cuts and Mexico wall is up in the air-but expect the share market to continue its gyrations after the big drop as the view of the admin as 'neutered' will prevail in the short term until Trump gets a legislative win.


The long term answer to this problem is to primary all centrist RINO's until there is a conservative caucus majority in the House. It will shortly be time for Governor Palin to hit the 2018 campaign trail for true conservatives.

Leftist States/Courts Try Again To Overturn "Travel Ban." Constitutional Convention of States The Remedy



" Washington State to Join Hawaii in Challenge to New Travel Ban 
Washington state will ask U.S. District Court Senior Judge James L. Robart to apply the temporary injunction he issued last month on Trump's initial executive order to the newly revised travel ban." NBC News "

It is beyond ridiculous that the president and his administration, acting for the defense of America and the best interests and safety of its citizens, can have that action overturned by the leftist coastal states and their activist judiciary.

The initial travel ban was overturned by the same forces seeking to overturn the subsequent ban. That America may have been endangered and compromised by the removal of the element of surprise with the initial travel ban, with who knows what dangerous elements subsequently arriving in America is bad enough, any further delay in implementation could be disastrous.

If any terrorist attacks happen, directly linked to terrorists who have entered during the period of the overturning of travel bans then the blood will be directly on the hands of the leftist elements that enabled empowered such actions.

Clearly these judicial activists have to be stopped from potentially endangering the country. There are three remedies.

1. Confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court as soon as possible, even by the "nuclear option' if required, to restore a conservative  Supreme Court majority and request an urgent review of the travel ban.

2. The people who elected President Trump and who clearly see terrorism as a major concern and one of the main reasons they elected him to deal with it must lend every effort to having a constitutional Convention of States called to empower the executive through a constitutional amendment to deal effectively with "all enemies both domestic and foreign." 

An amendment, setting out in clear terms that the executive has the authority to temporarily or permanently block entry of those reasonably considered to be a threat woudl put an end to leftist judicial grandstanding and activism.

"In order to legally compel Congress to call a convention, 34 states need to pass similar resolutions. Currently, 29 states meet the requirement"

3. Conservatives must flood to the polls in November 2018 to ensure at least 8-10 more Republican senators are elected giving the administration  'super majority" with the ability to press forwards with all required legislation as well as ensuring a continuing majority in the House and in governorships to ensure electoral boundaries are fair in the ensuing readjustment following the next census.

11 Major Thinkers From Schweikart To Lifson; Dem's 20 Months From Armageddon




​​Here are the simple stark facts, the Democratic Party, at least as it is now constructed, faces disaster in a scant 20 months (11/6/18) from today;



Washington Times "

"And here comes 2018

The Democrats face grim prospects in the midterm congressional elections"

"The Democrats need to pick up a net of three seats to win the Senate (there’s no realistic prospect of taking the House in the foreseeable future), and saddest of all for the Democrats, the party will defend 25 seats next year and the Republicans, only 8. Only one Republican senator, Dean Heller of Nevada, a freshman, is in a state won by Hillary Clinton, an indication of the temperature of the water.

 No other Republican seat, says the authoritative Cook Political Report, “appears to be even remotely in danger.”
But several Democratic incumbents may be fighting for survival in states that Donald Trump carried by margins up to a remarkable 42 percent. These endangered incumbents include Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Joe Manchin in West Virginia, Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Jon Tester in Montana and Claire McCaskill in Missouri. They have survived frights before, but this time the politics is strange and new."

If the GOP takes eight senate seats from the Dem's they will have a filibuster  proof majority to add to their control of Congress, the presidency, the Supreme Court and they will have total power. What would be left of the Dem's would be a faction ridden rump most likely controlled by the Sanders radical wing.


"Republicans control about 4,170 state legislative seats across the country, almost 1,000 more than they held in 2009 when Barack Obama was sworn in. Today, 33 governors are Republican; when Obama took office, just 21 governors were Republican."

The compete rejection of Obama would reach right down to every strata of government. The Obama presidency was a complete aberration driven by an infatuated media and only came about because of the G.W. Bush disastrous foreign policy and the crazed financial community greed which led to the 2008 collapse.

Rahm Emanuel has a clear understanding that that disaster can not be fixed overnight but he offers no prescription, except time, to right the sinking ship. The obvious solution, jettisoning the "social justice warriors" the Sanders faction, and creating a platform which discards the stealth attack on the second amendment, leaves "identity politics" and social issues alone (or to the states) and addressing the concerns of industrial workers is a bridge to far. But not crossing that bridge will simply hasten the end of the Dem's.


"Rahm Emanuel Tells Dems to ‘Take a Chill Pill’: ‘It Ain’t Gonna Happen in 2018’


Pam Key   Breitbart

 
David Lieb is also realistic;

"For Trump Foes, Democratic Gains May Remain Elusive in 2018"
David Lieb Real Clear Politics

And voices from the left,whose prescription will be ignored if the Sanders/Warren wing triumphs;

"How the Democrats can rebuild"

Joel  Krotkin OC Register

"To win consistently in the near term, and compete in red states, Democrats need to adjust the cultural and racial agenda dominating the “resistance” to one that addresses directly the challenges faced by working- and middle-class families of all races. This notion of identity politics, as opposed to those of social class, is embraced by the progressives’ allies in the media, academia, urban speculators, Hollywood and Silicon Valley, since environmentalism, gender and race issues do not directly threaten their wealth or privileged status."

"Hillary Clinton won Latino vote but fell below 2012 support for Obama"

"The Coming Democratic Majority? Not So Fast."

Demography, despite the dreams of the left and the fears of the right, is not destiny. Tempting though it is for liberals to think that history is on their side, there is no realistic substitute to winning the battle of ideas. To beat Trump, Democrats will have to build a convincing case they can take to the nation as a whole.

Reid Wilson makes the point that unless the Dem's make significant inroads into electing governors and state legislators in 2018 they will be effectively shut out of the redistricting of Congressional electoral boundaries ensuring a further long-term grip on Congress for the GOP.

Hail And Farewell!

With Governor Palin's chosen candidate, and mine, now President-Elect Trump having won the basic premise of this site is concluded. 


The sites premise was always a philosophical one  ("Palinism in the Presidency") and that has been achieved

This is not/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 places 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 look at initiating a new Palin centered 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 but rather about supporting her philosophy. Of course I, and I am sure a massive number of others, judging by her Facebook followers being over 3 million, would have wish her to have run in 2016 or to be in a cabinet role.

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. 

But even if none of these options appeal to her, 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 stood for are
AT THIS LINK


Palin chose not to run in 2016 but endorsed a candidate, Donald Trump, enthusiastically. In that person "Palin-ism in the Presidency" comes into effect. Thus, in effect, Palin herself is the candidate and can be said to have run. Her values, ideals and hopes for America will be instituted to as much a degree as possible by her chosen candidate for which her endorsement, at a critical time, was hugely valuable.

Her statements on Obama's capabilities/Putin & The Ukraine/race relations under Obama/"Crony Capitalism" and so much more have been proven to be far sighted and, sadly, correct. It was an unexpected economic collapse in September 2008 which robbed her of the vice-presidency and her chance to prove herself on the national stage. But, such is life and who knows what the future may bring.

Being outside of cabinet/the administration palin is free to hold the admin's feet to the fire. If there is a deviance from the principles that saw Trump elected to such a degree that Palin is alienated then I will of course support her at such a point, which hopefully does not arise.

As for myself I have enormously enjoyed writing about Palin and conservative economics and social values 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.

Dem's Not Done Yet; One Final Pathetic Attempt To Block Trump Organized For 1/20/17

With a seemingly endless parade of pathetic and failed attempts to block Donald Trump becoming president now in the gutter where they belong, the left has one, final, and desperate mechanism left.

That such a concept as preventing though "civil disobedience" President-Elect Trump taking the oath of office at his inauguration ceremony, the very final act of assuming the presidency, could enter anyone's mind shows the absolute level of mental disturbance that goes for the "progressive'
outlook.

But enter it has; 

"Left-wing documentarian and anti-fitness guru Michael Moore is imploring fellow leftists across the globe to disrupt President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration, citing former secretary of state Hillary Clinton's meaningless popular vote win for his pathetic rallying call to his fellow comrades. The Electoral College, which dictates who our president is, is apparently irrelevant to this leftist.  
On Wednesday, Moore took to Twitter to spread his message: "Disrupt the Inauguration. The Majority have spoken - by nearly 2.7 million votes &counting! Silence is not an option." 
Moore linked to the sign-up website for #DisruptJ20 (Disrupt January 20), the name of the protest to be held on Inauguration Day. 
"DisruptJ20: Call for a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017," says the sign-up website. "We’re bringing widespread civil resistance to the streets of Washington, DC through protests, direct actions, and even parties and we want you there with us."
The site says it is calling on "all people of good conscience to join in disrupting the ceremonies."
"If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors,"

2016 Saw The End of "Punditry" As Anything But Blatant Propaganda

Apart from the election of Donald Trump as president 2016 brought another welcome benefit, the end of punditry and pundits as something of "value".

For most of America's history the press and more latterly television and the pundits therein (e.g. Cronkite/Huntley-Brinkley) held a high and privileged place in the culture. 

Who a newspaper endorsed for president used to be a highly coveted item in any campaign and a journal or magazine that had a respected pundit or pundits would carry enormous weight in respect of voters considerations if not actual choices.

By their actions in the 2016 campaigns the media with their blatant one-sided and grossly distorted bias. 

About two newspapers nationwide endorsed Trump for president, towards Clinton and against Trump gave up any pretensions to being in any way a focal point for genuine analysis. 

The entire media with its liberal bias is now simply a home for its audiences prejudices. 

Nobody could honestly advise that the various 'Posts' and 'Times' in Washington/New York and California are anything but propaganda pieces for the urban left. 

Similarity Fox TV, Breitbart and "A Point of View' are repositories for center-left discussion.

This is actually all for the good. The fact that any pretensions to evenhandedness are gone allows for any media site to be taken at face value as well as providing a comforting bubble for its audience. 

The same applies to "pundits" too. 

Any thundering volley from the likes of Josh Marshall or Nate Silver of any of the Washington Posts's stable e.g. Dana Milbank are now taken with a huge grain of salt or as an indication of what propaganda line the DNC wishes to promote at any one time.
