Is Sarah Palin’s America Here?

2016 November 17
by bc3b

Several weeks ago Barack Obama admitted himself that “Sarah Palin is the one who started this.” But, few others have given Gov. Palin credit for her role in starting the populist/conservative movement, keeping it afloat after Barack Obama’s election in 2008 and her early endorsement of Donald Trump, which gave him credibility with many conservatives.

On January 20 Sarah Palin may have the last laugh.

There is one aspect of the Donald Trump victory that is not getting much press. the fact that it is yet another huge win for Sarah Palin over the media and culture.

In 2010 I wrote about how Sarah Palin (Along with Rush Limbaugh) was the big winner in the first big red wave:

CBS news pointed out Sarah Palin endorsed 43 house candidates of which 30 won while winning 7 of 12 Senate endorsed candidates. Senator Jim Demitt said “she’s done a lot of good for the Republican Party, and for our country.”

And Rush Limbaugh, having none of the spin of the majority of the Mainstream media on the 4th said: “If anybody is an obvious winner here, aside, of course, from me, it would be Palin.”

So to conservatives who are basking in the joy of a historic question I say to you : “Never forget that it is to Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin that you really owe these victories.”

Sarah Palin picked up the mantle of conservatism after the election of Barack Obama when everyone else was ready to give up. She helped deliver two big red waves and now 8 years after the news media, the media culture and the establishment GOP began laughing at her nonstop without grasping what she has been doing we have Donald Trump, who she endorsed in the White House, with a Republican house and a Republican senate and the prospect of her being the next Secretary of the Interior.

None of which the now celebrating GOP members got from the establishment.

So let me close by reminding my fellow conservatives who are still enjoying the media’s distress and the sight of special snowflakes showing how valueless their $50,000 a year educations are as they melt to pieces over the thought of our newfound power, of something they might have forgotten.

Never forget that it is to Sarah Palin that we owe these victories.

    A few points:

    1) Conservatism wasn’t “saved”…it was brought back from the brink of death, and has been given a temporary stay of execution. This is not the time for the touchdown dance. If Trump blows up, or if he capitulates to the GOPe, it’s over, done with, gone.

    2) Demographics are still against us long term, unless we forge some new constituencies and alliances. I’ve just about given up on blacks…big government favors them, and the Dems have been successful in creating a permanent dependency class. Hispanics are culturally salvageable. The 30% that voted for Trump gives me some hope. The Dems of course will continue to push their “brown is the new black” strategy. Closing the border, deportations, halting illegal voting, and spurring the economy in Latino communities will help. Get the illegals out, and the poor but legal Hispanics may experience an economic boom. My experience is that they are not afraid of hard work.

    3) SJWs and BLM tantrums actually help conservatism. Let ’em have their fun, and let the media show them for all their glory. Only helps to convert moderate Dems over, especially as the Democrat party continues it’s hard left turn.

    4) Draining the swamp will help if it’s done aggressively and the public is made to realize what has really been taking place. Especially important is shining a glaring light on how Wall Street bankers and the establishment elites and DC power brokers have colluded to enrich themselves at the expense of Joe Lunchbox.

    5) If the anti-Globalist movement spreads, it helps. America First benefits Americans…nothing wrong or racists about that. Common sense needs to prevail if conservatism is to hold it’s ground.

    6) Sarah Palin – still hot as hell. Maybe even hotter than 8 years ago, but then again I’m 8 years older, so…

    excellent question…and the answer is it’s halfway here

    half the country subscribes to the Leftist philosophies spewed by our alleged “education” system, and the utter rot dished out by Ministry of Truth (aka the MSM)

    BUT, after 8 years of Obama bullshit, the half of American that ISN’T brainwashed now has the keys to the kingdom.

    But we only have 4 years (if that) to effect REAL change…because the Leftist forces WILL be back.

    Good points, JBoz…especially point #2

    My big concern, however, remains the children…regardless of ethnic background. TWO generations have been brainwashed by a propaganda & brainwashing effort disguised as “education”. And not very well disguised either.

    Textbooks need to be re-written, Charter schools vastly expanded, and the Teacher’s (Soviet) Union BROKEN.

    Sometimes something is said so well it cannot be improved upon. This comment I just read may be one such time. In describing the hysteria being vomited forth by the media, and the sing-song chanting of “students” across the country “traumatized” by Trump’s win the author penned this:

    “These people spend all day in bubbles spraying each other with panic pheromones”

    Soros and his ilk must be neutralized. He is not stopping in his effort to destroy the US, and his dirty work is largely ignored. His attorney general project, local and district judges, and the radical elements (BLM, etc) are all insidious undercover type campaigns, but effective over the long term.

    His kid looks dumb as a brick, and the old Fokker is long in the tooth, but the Soros money will be against us for a long time.

    With illegal aliens being concentrated in a few huge states (Kalifornia, New York, Illinois and New Jersey) where they can illegally vote with impunity, it’s essential that the electoral college continues to be the means of deciding the presidency.

    Whites must be convinced that it’s no more racisssst for them to vote their self-interests than it is for blacks, Hispanics, Asians or any other group.

    OP: This posting yet again reaffirms what I have been saying since 2008 — Palin for RNC Chair. She is uniquely qualified to shake up, purge, rebuild and manage a New Republican Party. Like no other.

    I would like to echo the author’s sentiment. The way the media destroyed Sarah Palin in 2008, it would have been very easy for her to walk away. Most people would have. She is kind of like the John the Baptist of the conservative/populist movement.

    If Trump can just pull it off and be a great president, we just may have a party that’s responsive to the American people.

    Thx for the update, mullet! 🙂

    Years and years ago a particular programming shop I was running had a particularly useless programmer who happened to be Vietnamese and happened to speak atrocious English. One day, Binh marched into my office and announced: “I goin resonate tomorrow“.

    I (somehow) kept a straight face, nodded sagely, and walked to my boss’ office and announced: “Tomorrow, Binh is either going to HUM or QUIT…it’s too soon to tell”

    The next day Binh did indeed quit…and a few minutes later the Vice-president in charge of my entire Division of the company called and asked my whether Binh “hummed or quit”. My boss had told his boss who told his boss…etc. 🙂

    John Bolton, Top Contender For Secretary Of State, Calls For Regime Change In Iran

    “The only long-term solution is regime change in Tehran,” the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations told SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily on Thursday morning. “The ayatollahs are the principal threat to international peace and security in the Middle East.”
    The call for regime change is very much in line with past statements from Bolton, a hyper-hawkish Bush administration official who stands by the decision to invade Iraq in 2003. He has repeatedly urged the U.S. to help Israel bomb Iran or do it alone. Even as Iran was in the final stages of negotiating an international agreement that requires it to dramatically scale back its nuclear infrastructure, Bolton recommended a military attack.

    31 – Not concerned atm, I think he’s ego feeding, it’s what he does sometimes.

    Trump: “So mitt I wanted to get your thoughts about SoS, I’ve been thinking about these 5 or 6 people…. what do you think of them, got any other suggestions?”
    Mitt : …bla bla bla bla bla bla
    Trump: “Well that’s fantastic advice, thanks for being a good sport and sharing it with me, I’ll be sure to take it under advisement, thanks for coming by.”
    /Mitt leaves
    /Trump rolls eyes and chuckles and looks at Ivanka
    Ivanka: “You think he knows you were BS’ing him?”
    Trump: “Probably, but he came didn’t he, and we got the photos we wanted him of doing such either way.”

    Considering putting Romney’s daughter in law up for RNC chair, a rumor earlier in the week, already strained believably but at least she seemed one of various state chairmen that was qualified, Romney as SoS… however I just don’t believe it.

    The guide, called the “Lesson Plan on the November 2016 Election,”
    informs teachers that “a racist and sexist man has become the president
    of our country by pandering to a huge racist and sexist base,” and
    suggests they teach children the same.

    In fact, the lesson plan urges teachers not to tell students that Hillary Clinton lost the election (original emphasis): “DO
    NOT: Tell them that we have LOST and that we have to accept this. We do
    not have to accept ANYTHING except that we must and will fight for
    justice against an unjust system and against unjust people.”

    on another note…

    Obama continues to rant about “Fake news”, while on his “Obama is AWESOME” tour. After praising himself, again (and again), Obama took time out from patting himself on the back to decry the existence “Fake news” on the Internet.

    Pause and think about this for a moment.

    Is there “Fake news”? Yes. And some of it is pushed by the Mainstream Media (MSM). The NYTimes, for example, is infamous for printing stories they KNOW to be FALSE…then quietly retracting or correcting them days later. “Fake news”??? Yup.

    Further, much of what the media LABELS as “Fake news” turns out to be TRUE later on (see: John Edwards vs The Nat’l Enquirer)

    Lastly…who/what is going to the ARBITER of what is and is not “Fake news”??? Oh…The Ministry of Truth!

    66 – It’s such a joke the whole thing, there is almost more “fake news” on MSM sites then “fake news sites”. What this is really aimed at is the data is in on FB and twitter, during the election most clicked\engaged site was breitbart. This has them pissed.

    btw I noticed in one article yesterday about “fake news” this listed –
    “Fake news that Hillary Clinton sold weapons to terror group ISIS” – The only thing ‘fake’ about that is the word ‘sold’… the word should be ‘gave’, because while it was indirect it’s absolutely true.

    66 – continued… it’s all about just coming up with ‘reasons’ to censor what people see, under the label that something is ‘fake’ – how about leave that to user, funny how they’ve never been worried about this before, it’s no different from thier BS to ban stuff as ‘racist’ etc when it’s not.

    KH, I saw that labeling of the ISIS story, and you are 100% correct.

    Obama and Hillary fully intended to erect a full-fledged ‘Ministry of Truth’…they have already mentioned it. Obama called it “Truth Curators”. 👿

    naturally, all sites like Drudge and Breitbart would have immediately been silenced by the “Curators”.

    alas, poor Obama is gonna have to wait at least 4 years to erect his ‘Ministry of Truth’…but he and the Dems will NOT stop trying

    The article includes this sage observation (that the Democrats will ignore):
    “When Michael Moore is the voice of semi-sanity in your party – asserting that the white working-class “left-behinds” are NOT racist scum, as pilloried, but ignored and desperate – it is time to acknowledge that your rhetoric has run off the rails.”
