Sarah Palin To Resign As Governor, Democratic National Committee Takes A Sexist Shot

Sarah Plain announced she will leave the her position as Governor of Alaska. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/07/03/palin-opts-run-second-term-alaska-governor/

Governor Plain sited, amond other things, the cost of defending herself and her family from groundless ethics compliants. Since her selection as the Republican Vice Presidental Candidate, 15 ethics investigatons have been launched and completed. Governor Palin has been found innocent of all charges. The financial cost to her, personally, is in excess of $500,000.

The American public can’t even get Obama’s college transcripts released or the straight story about his undergraduate years. Tony Resko gave Obama $100,000’s of dollars in loans, but Obama professes that he only new Resko long enough to have  a cup of coffee together. Resko is a slum lord and has been convicted of multiple felonies.    

Todd Palin told FOX News that his wife will concentrate on “doing the things for Alaska and the country” that she is passionate about and cannot do as governor with the limitations and constant opposition she deals with within the state.

Governor Plain has not ruled out a future run for national office.

The Democratic National Committee issued the following statement:

“Either Sarah Palin is leaving the people of Alaska high and dry to pursue her long shot national political ambitions or she simply can’t handle the job,” Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse said in a written statement, calling it the latest in a “pattern of bizarre behavior.”

This item is also worthy of note …….

Palin Beats Out Blagojevich for Sitting Duck Award

The National Society of Newspaper Columnists chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the winner of its annual Sitting Duck Award, a tongue-in-cheek honor that pokes fun at the most ridiculed newsmakers in the United States. 

The National Society of Newspaper Columnists chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the winner of its annual Sitting Duck Award, a tongue-in-cheek honor that pokes fun at the most ridiculed newsmakers in the United States.

Palin beat out Democrat Rod Blagojevich, the ousted former governor of Illinois allegedly caught trying to sell President Obama’s Senate seat. Blagojevich was the runner-up. Palin was noted for making headline after headline, month after month. The selection was made last week at a conference in Ventura, Calif. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/07/03/palin-beats-blagojevich-sitting-duck-award/

Blagojevich has been indicted on multiple felony counts, http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/blagojevich/1639552,w-blagojevich-trial-date-set-062509.article , several of his close associates have already been convicted. http://cbs2chicago.com/governor/rod.blagojevich.indicted.2.974448.html

The man he appointed to replace Barack Obama, Roland Burris, committed perjury but will not be charged with the crime. http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUSTRE51E05B20090215?feedType=RSS&feedName=topNews

Then we have this incident …

‘Too Bad’ Sarah Palin Didn’t Go Missing, Sen. Kerry Jokes

Massachusetts Sen. Kerry has joined the fraternity of jokesters using Sarah Palin as a punch line.

Kerry was meeting a group of business and civic leaders in the nation’s capital when he decided to play comedian, according to The Boston Herald. He was talking about the disappearance of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, the Alaska governor’s Republican peer.

“Too bad,” he said, “if a governor had to go missing it couldn’t have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin.”

The unemployment rate in Alaska, despite a spike in recent population growth (people moving to Alaska looking for work) is below the National average and the unemployment rate is dropping. http://www.northrim.com/home/fiFiles/static/documents/econ_overview.pdf

The Citizens of Alaska received a $3,500 state income tax rebate in 2008 and a $1,200 energy rebate. Housing prices have remained constant in Alska. Alaska has escaped the foreclosure crisis, with the 3rd lowest foreclosure rate in the Country. http://www.northrim.com/home/fiFiles/static/documents/econ_overview.pdf

At 70% Palin’s job approval rating in Alaska is higher than Obama’s Job approval rating. http://www.fodors.com/community/fodorite-lounge/sarah-palin-has-70-approval-ratings.cfm

JOB WELL DONE GOVERNOR PALIN. I WISH MY STATE WAS DOING AS WELL AS YOURS.

If you are a woman in this Country why are you not speaking out against this sexism ……. Why isn’t your voice being heard?

Lamentations over sexism or racism will fall on deaf ears in this realm …. It is either wrong for all or its wrong for none. Speak up now or forever hold your peace ………

Video: Obama’s Special Olympics Bowling Comment To Jay Leno

There is was nothing mean spirited in Mr Obama’s comments. The comments were unfortunate but not unforgivable. Mr Obama is lucky he isn’t a Republican ………

Can you imagine if the lady below would have made that comment …. what do you think the press would have done?

Instead she made the following statement just last month:

Obama 2008:Voter Fraud, Post Election Violence And Genocide

No, I’m not referring to today’s Presdiential election. I’m referring to Obama’s 2007 involvement in the Presidential elections in Kenya – a subject virtually ignored by the US Press but covered by the International Press.

Obama toured Kenya at US Taxpayer Expense in 2007. While in Kenya he Campaigned for his cousin Raila Odinga. Odinga had previously been jailed for his part in an unsuccessful attempt at the violent overthrow of the Kenyan Government (1982).                    http://allafrica.com/stories/200607210225.html                     http://www.sundayvision.co.ug/detail.php?mainNewsCategoryId=7&newsCategoryId=648&newsId

CBS International Reports – Obama Campaigns for Odinga – His Cousin – Obama described as “stooge” for Odinga by Kenyan Government Spokesman.

Odinga claims he and Obama are cousins. They are members of the Kenya’s Luo tribe. Odinga admitts to being a Marxist/Soviet styled Communist. He was education on a Russian Scholarship to an East German University in the 1960’s. Odinga named his son after Cuban President Fidel Castro.  http://www.kenya-advisor.com/kenya-and-the-cold-war.html

Reuters Reports Obama/Odinga Cousins –
NOTE: At the end of the above video Odinga claims Obama was negotiating on behalf of Odinga with Kenyan President Kibaki.

Obama actively campaigned for Odinga while Odinga negotiated a “political agreement” with Kenya’s Islamic leaders that would establish Sharia (Islamic) Courts of law, prohibit public displays of or the public worship of Chistianity, deny woman access to education and implement Sharia dress standards for Kenyan woman. Both Obama and Odinga denied the existence of this agreement, as the Washington Times states, “Mr. Odinga had the backing of Kenya’s Muslim community heading into the election. For months he denied any ties to Muslim leaders, but fell silent when Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, appeared on Kenya television displaying a memorandum of understanding signed on Aug. 29, 2007, by Mr. Odinga and the Muslim leader. Mr. Odinga then denied his denials, embracing the previously denied agreement.”

The details of the MOU were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of “Islam as the only true religion,” Islamic leaders would have an “oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original],” installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement of the police commissioner who “allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists,” adoption of a women’s dress code, and bans on alcohol and pork. The agreement also calls for Kenya to establish a “safe-haven” for terriorist being sought by the US. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/oct/12/obamas-kenya-ghosts/

NTV – Kenyan National TV / Nairobi – Broadcast cited above – (MOU) Kenyan Muslim Leadership Confirming Agreement – Odinga embraces the agreement at the end of the broadcast.
 

Odinga later made the MOU, described above, a center piece of his campaign ………

NTV – Odinga Campaings On MOU in Kenya’s Coast Region – Kenya’s Leading Muslim’s In Attendance

The Odinga/Obama campaign heightened Tribal and Religous animosities.

Odinga lost the contested election and his suppoprters ignited tragic inter-tribal violence that claimed over 1500 lifes and displaced over 500,000. In one instance of particlaurly brutal violence, ” “About 50 parishioners were locked into the Assemblies of God church before it was set ablaze. They were mostly women and children. Those who tried to flee were hacked to death by machete-wielding members of a mob numbering 2,000.” By mid-February 2008, more than 1,500 Kenyans were killed. Many were slain by machete-armed attackers. More than 500,000 were displaced by the religious strife. Villages lay in ruin. Many of the atrocities were perpetrated by Muslims against Christians.”       http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/oct/12/obamas-kenya-ghosts/ 

THE BBC REPORTS ON THE ELDORET MASSACRE AND THE TRIBAL VIOLENCE – THE UNITED NATIONS STATES THAT WHILE THERE WERE “IRREGULARITIES” THE ELECTION WAS NOT STOLEN. President Kibaki remains in office today.
  

Contrary to Press Reports – The Luo Tribe, Odinga and Obama’s Tribe, is not the predominant ethnic group in Kenya. Kenya’s Ethnic breakdown, based on 2000 Census Data is; Kikuyu Tribe 22%, Luhya Tribe14%, Luo Tribe 13%, Kalenjin Tribe 12%, Kambia Tribe 11%, Kisil Yribe 6%, Meru Tribe 6%, other African 15%, non-African (Asian, European and Arab) 1%. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenyan

And while it is believed that Kenya has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of Keyan’s who profess to be Muslim, it is still believed that Christians still out number Muslims at better than 5 to 1 ratio. The 2000 Census data revealed this breakdown –  Protestant 45%, Roman Catholic 33%, Muslim 10%, indigenous beliefs 10%, other 2%. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenyan

Assertions that Kenya is predominantly Muslim or Luo are simply false.

Obama – “I’ll bankrupt coal” …. and other shocking Obama claims

For those who might have missed it Barack Obama completed an interview with the San Fransico Chronicle in January 2008. The audio portion of the interview is posted on the Chronicle’s web site, “SF GATE.COM”. The interview can be located on the site here:  http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/opinionshop/detail?&entry_id=23562 You can listen for yourself.

In the interview Obama says a number things that are shocking.

On Coal

Obama says, “So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.” Obama also said, “That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in wind, solar, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches. The only thing that I have said with respect to coal, I haven’t been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.”

Despite comments to the contrary – Joe Biden confirmed that the Obama-Biden ticket oppose even clean coal – see the video below where Biden tells an environmental activist who questioned why coal is necessary given clean, effective alternatives like wind and solar, “we’re not supporting clean coal.” Obama/Biden supports clean coal plants in China – but “no coal” for the US. How will this effect America – 50% of American energy is generated from coal fueled energy plants.  

In the interview Obama spoke about his energy plan which includes an “aggressive” cap and trade policy  which will charge polluters in an effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions. These statements confirm or were the source of claims that Obama planned to initiate “carbon use” based tax policy in America a policy that the Europeans are trying to impose in Europe.  A “carbon use” tax policy would add taxes to heating, electricity and fuel bills, driving up prices of every product consumed in the United States. Carbon use based taxes are one of the most regressive taxes (regressive – the poor and middle class pay more than the rich) that a government can imploy – just like sales taxes. Obama notes that “our electricity rates will “skyrocket”.

Why do the Democrats continue to say “NO” to US based energy assets – “NO” to Coal and “NO” to oil drilling –

On the Democratic Primaries

Obama defends the Democratic Party Primary system (from clearly logical complaints made by President Clinton – who is obviously a right wing nut becuase he voices his criticism). Obama is dismissive of the suggested changes – PUMA has it right on this issue.  

Obama on telling the truth –

OK – so I already knew OBama was liar _ I read “Dreams of my father”. Obviously I know the history of Kenya better than Obama does – sure he lies – all the time – to hear him admit it is something else. Obama states, “well I generally I tell the truth” as if truthfulness is a small thing compared to winning the contest …..

Reminds me of the “clinging to bibles and guns” comment …………..

Barack Obama’s Shameful Silence On Violence Against Woman

In 1996 Barack Obama went to Kenya on a US Senate Fact Finding Tour at US Taxpayer Expense.

While Obama was there he took the opportunity to Campaign for his Cousin –  Current Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

CBS REPORTS OBAMA CAMPAIGNS FOR ODINGA DURING 2006 SENATE TRIP TO KENYA 
The origanal link here was from WBBM, the Video was removed from  You-Tube the day after this post was made on 11/1/08. The WBBM Video showed additional footage of Obama & Odinga on the Campaign stump – The CBS video simply states that Obama campaigned daily for his Cousin. The CBS video contains the same footage of a Kenyan Government offical referring to Obama as a “stooge” for Odinga. An additional link to the original WBBM video is being sought.
REUTERS REPORTS – ODINGA CLAIMS TO BE OBAMA COUSIN

While Obama toured Kenya and campaigned for Odinga – Obama failed to speak out against the ongoing violence against woman in the Kenyan political process – Not once did he speakout.

What violence you ask? ……….. This violence

 

What happened after the election? …….. This is what happened …….

and this ………….

Obama helped incite the tribal tensions but did nothing to help qwell the post election violence.

Kenya has not seen this type of violence since the Mau-Mau Rebellion of the 1950’s.

VIDEO ADDED – SEE RESPONSES BELOW – There is no excuse – DO YOU REMEMBER OBAMA’S CONDEMNATION OF THESE ACTS – HE CAMPAIGNED FOR ODINGA AND INCITED TRIBAL TENSIONS – THEN HE WALKED AWAY.

The United Nations states, “While there were voting irregularities, the election out is believed to be accurrate”. Odinga did not win the election. These violent activites are the second attempted “coup” by Odinga and his family in Kenya – the first occurred in 1982. Obama campaigned for a man who participated in an a previous, unsuccessful, violent attempt to overthrow the Kenyan Government.
