  • Sarah Palin's PAC spent $1.4 million in 2015, gave just $23,500 to campaigns

    Ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin launched her political action fund, Sarah PAC, in 2009 with the stated purpose "to help elect principled conservative leaders" across the country. But the latest Federal Election Commission filing indicates that money raised in small contributions by Sarah PAC is going to consultants, speech-writing services, direct-mail appeals, as well as stays by Palin in fancy hotels. Sarah PAC raised $950,000 in 2015, spent a total of $1.4 million, and donated just 23,500 to 45 campaigns. It also...

Then she blamed her son being involved in a domestic incident on Barack Obama's treatment of veterans, turning off a lot of veterans in the process by suggesting those who came back from overseas were no longer able to control themselves and were not culpable for their actions. Then she went to a Trump rally the day of the election with tons of undecided voters and started attacking Congressman Steve King,...

    A group calling itself Anonymous Conservative hacked the 2016 Iowa Caucus website Monday, posting a manifesto on its front page. The cyberattack was in response to former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's endorsement of GOP front-runner Donald Trump last week. "The recent endorsement of Donald Trump by Sarah Palin is the final straw for our organization, The Anonymous Conservative," read an announcement posted to the Iowa caucus website. "Every good Conservative knows that Sarah Palin is a national embarrassment and she represents everything that is wrong with America," read the statement, allegedly from the hacktivist...

    Four years ago, I called the GOP the Thelma and Louise Party because its primary voters were determined to nominate a presidential candidate who could not possibly win the general election. The weirdest thing about Romney’s doomed candidacy was the support he received from people like Ann Coulter, who had spent years vehemently denouncing such transparent RINOs. This year, Coulter supports another RINO who cannot win: Donald Trump. Now, Sarah Palin has endorsed this sure loser. Coulter and Palin have thus become the Thelma and Louise of the Republican Party. Will GOP voters let them drive their party off the...

    Sarah Palin decided to make a political issue of combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder. "My son, like so many others," she said at a rally endorsing Donald Trump for President, "came back a bit different." Normally, veterans like me would view this positively - as a needed discussion after two wars that have impacted nearly 2.5 million U.S. service members. But we're talking about Palin here, and that's not where she took it. Instead, she used PTSD to excuse - or at least shift blame away from - her son's arrest on domestic violence charges the night before. According to police...

She showed that in spades this week, when she blamed President Obama for her son Track's recent domestic violence arrest. Track spent a year in Iraq with the Army, and Palin says his problems with domestic violence exemplify what happens to soldiers who come back home with PTSD. And who does she blame for this? Yep, Obama. "My son, like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened," Palin said at a rally where she was supporting Donald Trump. She went on to whine...

What Trump has said is that he’s going to hire the very best people and bring in men of Carl Icahn’s ilk … and he’s appearing with someone who’s viewed as one of America’s most astounding morons.” Palin’s endorsement of Trump follows a public dispute between the New York real estate tycoon and the Arizona senator who accused Trump of “firing up the crazies” after Trump held a campaign rally in...

However, at the rally Trump held this morning, Palin was absent with no explanation from the Trump camp. Instead, Trump just took the stage for a little longer than planned. The media inquired about Palin's absence and were basically given "no comment" in response.

Back in September, Beck went off on Palin for playing nice with Palin, declaring that he's "embarrassed" that he ever supported her because she's "become a clown." He apologized for that word choice but still trashed her "love affair" with Trump. On Facebook tonight, Beck lamented how Palin has abandoned her principles to back someone who supported big government up until last year.

He asked which candidate she'd most like to grab a beer with. Her answer? Donald Trump.Trump, of course, has been sober his whole life. But the moment perfectly encapsulates the Palin-Trump romance. Because in addition to endorsing a beer run with a man who doesn't drink, she also just endorsed for the presidency a man who is...

The former Alaska governor touched on a possible return to politics during a wide-ranging interview on CBS's "Sunday Morning." "This will always be home," she said of Wasilla, Ala. "I would know that I could always come back here." "You're willing to run again?" the interviewer asked. "I'd be willing. That's a good way to put it," Palin said.

    When The Post's front page declares: "Republicans are on the verge of ceasing to function as a national party," it's time to ask: How did this come to pass? You can choose from a litany of insurrections, government shutdowns and other self-inflicted wounds. But this year's carnival-like GOP presidential primary makes one event, in retrospect, stand out as a crucial turning point on the road to upheaval: the 2008 embrace of then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be a heartbeat from the presidency. Palin's blatant lack of competence and preparedness needs no belaboring. What's critical is that substantive, serious Republican leaders...

Since late February, she’s stayed away from the eight other forums, events held almost weekly. And she’s not on the roster for the next meeting, Florida Gov.

    The Sarah Palin who returned to the GOP stage Thursday had no props, few Palinisms, and just a ghost of her former folksy twang. So what if there were still falsehoods? Palin 2016! Failed reality television star and mistress of liberal America Sarah Palin is strutting out onstage at CPAC, clad in a white blazer and black skirt. She places her water bottle on the floor next to the podium and opens a binder. A typical Palin speech usually involves props: Dr. Seuss books or Big Gulp sodas. This year, she has none.

    Conservative pundit Sarah Palin made a cute, sporting little cameo on Saturday Night Lives 40th anniversary show this weekend winking at her own disastrous 2008 vice-presidential run, which was memorably skewered at the time by SNLs Tina Fey. In the bit on Sunday night, Palin piped up during a Q&A with Jerry Seinfeld to ask, Just curious, Jerry, how much do you think [SNL producer] Lorne Michaels would pay me if I were to run in 2016 with Donald Trump as my running mate?

    Newly elected Tom Cotton of Arkansas is one of the youngest members of the Senate, only 37 years old, a graduate of Harvard and Harvard Law and a veteran of both Afghanistan and Iraq. Widely considered to be a leading light on the right in foreign policy and national security, Cotton was naturally given a plum assignment on the Senate Armed Services Committee. Last week he made his debut on the national stage by posing a series of probing questions about Guantnamo to Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Brian McKeon that left many people in the country wondering...

    Bill Maher ended his show tonight finally talking about Sarah Palins rambling Iowa speech that was the final straw for many Republicans and conservatives. But Maher had just one question for them: What took you so long?! Maher mocked the revelation as an emperor has no clues situation and asked Republicans why they took so long, saying, The rest of us have been watching this dog eat grass for seven years! However, while Maher was glad that many conservatives are finally admitting Palin is a crazy person, he said they should maybe consider what else theyve been wrong about, like...

    We know how the mainstream media piles on Sarah Palin. Its the industrys obsession when its not covering missing planes, New Jersey bridge closings, and binders full of women. Now, were seeing a new attack on the former Alaska governor, and its coming from an unexpected source: conservative media. Palin had it coming, to a degree. She made a speech in Iowa last week, and she fantastically flubbed a metaphor after an alleged teleprompter hiccup. Its ugly on the ears: The man can only ride you when your back is bent so strengthen it! Then the man cant ride...

    Sarah Palin is being smeared in headlines from the Huffington Post to the Washington Examiner for her 35-minute speech at Saturdays Iowa Freedom Summit. In 2015, Palinophobia is as palpable as it was in 2008. After six years, the media still tears into the superstar from Wasilla like rabid dogs. The Washington Examiner's Byron York called the speech "long, rambling and at times barely coherent ... By the time Palin finished speaking, it was hard for anyone to believe she truly is 'seriously interested' in running for president." From Huffington Post: "Sarah Palin's Bizarre Iowa Speech Gets Thanks From...

    Sarah Palin made headlines last weekend when she said she was interested in running for President. Palin has been an important part of the Tea Party and conservative movements in this country since she came onto the scene in 2008. Nobody on the right throws red meat to a crowd quite like Palin. Her ability to sarcastically tear down liberal sacred cows is second only to Rush Limbaugh. Best of all she drives liberals up a wall. They hate her more than any other conservative in this country, including George W. Bush and Limbaugh. Watching liberals fall to pieces over...
