    Does she not know that Trump assured Carrier that he'll reduce the regulatory climate and lower taxes across the board, which will help not only Carrier but all American businesses overall. How is this crony capitalism? As far as tax credits or subsidies are concerned, those came from the state of IN. The point is, is that now's not the time to be engaging in this self-defeating crap. Trump already got his hands full by fighting off Hillary from stealing the election from him and walking on eggshells while Obola is still in the WH. Discuss this privately with Trump...

    Sarah Palin is criticizing President-elect Donald Trumps deal with Carrier, even as she is reportedly under consideration to serve as Trump's secretary of Veterans Affairs. In a op-ed in Young Conservatives published Friday, the former Alaska governor first expresses excitement for the Carrier employees whose jobs are staying in Indiana. What a relief for hundreds of workers, she wrote. Merry Christmas Indiana! But she goes onto to blast the deal as crony capitalism" and an example of the "hallmark of corruption" and "socialism." When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair,...

    Conservative blogger and broadcaster Erick Erickson joined Glenns radio program Wednesday to discuss the political landscape and the upcoming 2016 RedState Gathering in Denver, Colorado. When Glenn asked Erickson how we could put the fractured alliance between conservatives and libertarians back together, Erickson expressed his doubts on this happening anytime soon. All the people who supported Trump in the primary are mad at the establishment. They hate the Republicans in Washington, Erickson said. Whether Trump wins or loses, these are going to be the Republicans still in charge, and Donald Trump has already said hes perfectly happy cutting deals with...

The party of family values has just nominated a man on his third wife with numerous affairs and they are pitting him against a woman whose husband routinely cheated on her, but they kept their marriage together. Republicans are prone to cast aspersions on the Clinton marriage. They did it for power or she stuck to him for her own benefit are the most common ones.

  • Theres no Trump without Palin: Meghan McCain scolds conservatives for backing Trump

    05/06/2016 11:35:22 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 125 replies
    Donald Trumps coronation as the GOP nominee will present plenty of opportunities for Republican amnesia and short-sightedness. The easiest thing to do, if youre a conservative Republican, is to dismiss Trump as an aberration, as if his candidacy emerged out of a whirlwind. But thats the work of revisionist historians, not honest observers of the last decade of Republican politics. Consider this recent tweet by Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain and now a commentator for Fox News: I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who...

    Donald Trump is sending Sarah Palin, one of his best political surrogates, to the Wyoming Republican State Convention, in an effort to woo delegates to his campaign. On Saturday, Wyoming State Delegates will select the remaining 14 delegates to represent the party in Cleveland. Twelve delegates were already selected at partys county caucuses in March. Three other delegate slots go to the partys national committeeman, national committeewoman, and the chairman of the Wyomings Republican Party. Trump is anxious to stop the flow of delegates to his rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% . In Colorado, Cruz swept all 34 delegates...

    Thursday, the rise of Donald Trump as a malignant political force was the cause of an outbreak of Sarah Palin Derangement Syndrome in the mind of a writer from Chicago named Steve Chapman. Chapman draws a direct line between Trump becoming the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination and the rise of Palin as a political force of nature when she was selected as John McCains running mate in 2008. Palin, you see, is simply Trump in a skirt, something that may be hard for the rest of us to imagine, despite the fact that the lady from Alaska has...

Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas, edged the national GOP front-runner in Alaska for his third win of Super Tuesday. Trump was still the nights big Republican winner with victories in seven states. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who finished third in Alaska, won one state. The other two candidates on Tuesdays ballot in Alaska John Kasich and Ben Carson did not garner enough support to win...

In 2009, Levi announced that he was going to sue his high school sweetheart for joint custody of Tripp after alleging that the entire Palin family was making it difficult for him to see his son. The exes reached a child custody stipulation in 2010, allowing Levi to see Tripp on Saturdays between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., and Wednesdays from 12:00 p.m. to 6 p.m. The court never approved Levi and Bristol's agreement, however,...

    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...

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...

Were bringing backI use the term again, (as) it hasnt been used in a long timethe silent majority, he told Palin at the tail-end of her 10 p.m. newscast, On Point with Sarah Palin, on Friday night. Of course, Donald...

    Governor Palin "accepted" an apology from RedState’s Erick Erickson: Erick Erickson,Today a friend forwarded your apology for mocking my family – again – and in answer to your point, yes, I do remember people taking repeated potshots at my family, friends, and supporters (many of whom politely pointed out to you and your staffers that the sleazy photoshopped picture you ran of me was indeed fake, but were dismissed and mocked repeatedly for doing so.) Also, in your summary of our interactions, you forgot to mention things like your public comparison of me to L. Ron Hubbard (and not in...

    ...before we get off the topic of Fox News and the fact that they are oh-so-shocked at the supposed sexism of Donald Trumpheres a little perspective. Back in 2010, Chris Wallace joked about having my Mom (Sarah Palin) sit on his lap during an interview. In 2011, Roger Ailes said, I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings. Fox and Erickson need to get off their high horse on how outraged they are NOW about sexism and decency.

    Let me begin by clearly stating my biases I like the Palins. They are dear family friends. My wife, Nancy, worked with Sarah on her most recent book, she worked with Bristol on her book, she edits Bristols blog on Patheos, and I represented Bristol in a lawsuit when a man sued her after he profanely accosted her at a bar. (He lost.) In the years since my wife first flew to Wasilla to meet the Palins and work with Bristol, Ive seen just a fraction of the non-stop hatred and vitriol directed at the family. Much of...

    Bristol Palin is pregnant and this is news. The 24-year-old daughter of former vice presidential candidate and SNL punching bag Sarah Palin has spent the last seven years since her moms failed bid for the White House making abstinence (and holiness in general) her personal and very profitable cause celeb. In 2008, 17-year-old Palins unplanned teen pregnancy threatened to derail her moms White House hopes. But her potentially embarrassing narrative quickly turned to one of resilience and the reality shows followed. Palin appeared on season 11 of Dancing with the Stars and in her own Lifetime docu-series, Bristol Palin: Lifes...

    Bristol Palin just threw cold water on what's supposed to be a joyous occasion ... being pregnant. Palin's in the early stages of her second out of wedlock pregnancy, and this time she's full on grumpy, saying she knows it will be "a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you." Bristol says she's "trying to keep [my] chin up on this one." Sarah Palin's daughter was engaged to U.S. Marine veteran Dakota Meyer, but they broke things off last month. Bristol didn't say if Dakota's the dad. Bristol was full of piss and...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin praised Jeb Bush on Monday, highlighting his remarks on raising children with special needs. The comments from Palin, who remains a favorite with some grassroots conservatives, come a day after Bushs official entry to the presidential race. It was encouraging today to hear Governor Jeb Bush speak directly to an issue that touches so many lives in these challenging times, both culturally and fiscally raising a child with special needs, Palin wrote on her Facebook page. I'm glad Jeb's life was touched by God's purpose-filled children, and hope he continues with a positive message...

    Michael Savage, the tough-talking conservative radio show host to millions of Americans had some remarks on a few of the current candidates running for the GOP nomination.  After assessing the names he ran through, he said the following on Governor Palin (who is not a current candidate): I hate to say this, but I’m beginning to think that only Sarah Palin could save America. I would love to see her go up against Hillary Clinton. You think she wouldn’t stand a chance? As far as I know, Sarah Palin’s husband didn’t make hundreds of millions of dollars while Sarah Palin...

    Sarah Palin is lashing out at the media for how it has covered the sexual abuse revelations about "19 Kids And Counting" star Josh Duggar while giving "Girls" star Lena Dunham a free pass. Writing on her Facebook page, Palin compared the media storm over Duggar, whose parents confirmed on Fox News this week that he had improperly touched" some of his sisters when he was a teenager, to that of Dunham, who wrote in her book "Not That Kind of Girl" that, as a 7-year-old child, she gave candy to her 1-year-old sister in exchange for kisses and a...
