    President Donald Trump is responding to a trade war — not starting one — he inherited by pursuing a “level playing field” via tariffs, wrote former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Monday. Palin pointed to comments made by Breitbart News’s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour last Thursday about Trump’s proposals to combat “economic warfare” waged by China to destroy America’s steel and aluminum manufacturers.....The “Trump Doctrine” illustrates the president’s wisdom via his “private sector experience,” wrote Palin: President Trump inherited this trade war, and he’s an atypical politician determined to actually do something to fix the problem. The Trump Doctrine involves...

    Sarah Palin: Andrew Breitbart Helped Me Defend Myself When Fox News Wouldn’t Let Me on Air After Giffords Shooting The late Andrew Breitbart helped Sarah Palin defend herself when Fox News Channel’s former Chairman Roger Ailes denied her the opportunity to respond on air to the media’s false accusations framing her for inciting the attempted assassination of former Congresswoman Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords (D-AZ) in the days immediately following the 2011 Tucson mass shooting incident.

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin offered comments about Wednesday’s mass murder at a Florida high school when she spoke with Breitbart News’s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight on Friday. “It’s not a Second Amendment gun issue at all,” Palin said, adding, “What needs to be discussed is the failure of the FBI.” Incompetence at the FBI — not agitation against the Second Amendment — should be a national focus related to the mass shooting in Florida, said Palin. Adding to that assertion, Palin stated, “What needs to be discussed is the failure of the FBI. This...
  • Sarah Palin was mocked in '08 for saying Putin invade Ukraine if Obama elected

    Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin warned that if Senator Barack Obama were elected president, his “indecision” and “moral equivalence” may encourage Russia’s Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine. Palin said then: After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next. For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico magazine. Hounshell wrote then that Palin’s comments were “strange” and...
  • Palin Vindicated: GOP Sends IPAB to the Death Panel

    Despite what we read in the “news” media about GOP failure to repeal Obamacare, congressional Republicans and President Trump are dismembering the reviled healthcare law, limb by limb. The latest appendage lopped off was its most dangerous — the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), investing unelected bureaucrats with power to “recommend” reductions in Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals. This would have inevitably reduced access to care for the elderly. That dangerous Obamacare provision was repealed this morning. If you have heard of IPAB, it is because Sarah Paalin dubbed it the “death panel." Her crusade against IPAB is one...

    David Kernell, best known for hacking into Sarah Palin's personal Yahoo account during the 2008 presidential campaign, has died from complications of multiple sclerosis. After being sentenced to a year in prison he got his life back on track, by most accounts. Kernell, 30, was a student at the University of Tennessee 10 years ago when he successfully guessed Palin's security answers, which allowed him to change the password and get access to the Yahoo account, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported while confirming his death last week in California through family members.

    CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter offers a weekly guest list full of liberal journalists, and then occasionally he interviews a conservative....if the objective is to offer a conservative underlining one of Stelter's favorite points. That happened again on Christmas Eve, when S.E. Cupp, host of a talk show on HLN (a sister network of CNN), sounded the company talking points on how the "mainstream media" are a "pillar of democracy" and attacked Fox News as resembling a "very friendly" dictator's channel. First, Cupp explained to Stelter that the media's ardor against Trump has sharpened the sense among conservatives that...

    Washington (AFP) – Sarah Palin, a former governor of Alaska and Republican vice presidential candidate, appealed on Tuesday the dismissal of her defamation suit against The New York Times, according to a court filing. Her suit against America’s newspaper of record was thrown out in late August by a New York judge who ruled that, in the context of “free” and “robust” American political journalism, “mistakes will be made.”....Palin accused the newspaper of having published the editorial with the full knowledge that the connection it mentioned was unfounded, and has pursued a defamation suit against it.

    "Call HBO, we'll have to see if Danny Strong is available," jokes Dunham's producing partner Jenni Konner when asked if the memoir — high on both her and Dunham's reading list — would make a good adaptation. Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s Lenny Letter celebrated its two-year anniversary earlier this month, a span which has featured stories from Jennifer Lawrence, Gloria Steinem, America Ferrera and model Ashley Graham. But the duo is focused now on digesting the story of one Hillary Clinton in her new book What Happened. Dunham has to get her surroundings set first. “We will for sure...
