I am sure there are a great many conservatives who were deeply disappointed with Sarah Palin’s screeching endorsement of Donald Trump yesterday. It was hard on the ears and harder on the heart. If anything, Palin and Trump made Mr. Cruz look more presidential.

I do question her motives, because Trump is many things, but he is not a conservative. He isn’t. And that was always Palin’s touchstone — true conservatism. Until now.

“I think it [would] be a blow to Sarah Palin, because Sarah Palin has been a champion for the conservative cause, and if she was going to endorse Donald Trump, sadly, she would be endorsing someone who’s held progressive views all their life on the sanctity of life, on marriage, on partial-birth abortion,” Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler said on CNN’s “New Day.”

Indeed.

I was an early supporter of Palin. I liked her a lot. She appeared to be tough, real and ethical. I thought the RINO establishment and the enemedia did a real number on her. Which is what they do. But she fell short — terribly short. She quit the Governorship of Alaska. She quit. Who quits? What happened to, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”? Lord knows I have been smeared, defamed, and libeled. My good name has been dragged through the mud because of my stand for freedom and against jihad and sharia. I won’t list here the litany of abuse I’ve suffered over the past 15 years. My point is, I would never quit. No matter what.

When Palin quit, I just didn’t get it. I did have some inkling that she wasn’t what she appeared to be during the Ground Zero Mosque controversy. You recall how I held those enormous rallies against the mosque. I had John Bolton, Andrew Breitbart, Geert Wilders and a host of other notables speak.

I had asked Sarah Palin to speak or, if her schedule did not allow her to appear in person, to give us a video or written statement to be read by the 911 family members. And she agreed to give us a statement. 911 family members were only too happy to read her statement. I asked her repeatedly for the statement. She never gave it to us. The 9/11 family members were deeply disappointed. The controversy got too hot for her. She was a coward. I think that’s why she quit the governorship. She didn’t have the stones. She turned out to be, when the going got tough, a phony.

The Trump endorsement reeks of opportunism. She thinks he is going to win. She wants on that train.

Cruz holds the conservative position in his opposition to ethanol subsidies, a tough but principled position to take in Iowa.  But that’s why Governor Branstad of Iowa came out against Cruz yesterday. Branstad’s son is paid by the ethanol lobby, and has been trailing candidates demanding they support ethanol. Does Palin support that?

Cruz stood with us after we were attacked by jihadis in Garland, Texas. Trump attacked us. Does Palin support that?

Trump is a big donor to the Clinton Foundation. Does Palin support that?

Phony.

Whether Palin still has the influence in conservative circles that she once did remains to be seen, but I think that her endorsement of Trump damages her far more than it does Cruz.

  • Barry Soetoro

    Agree 100%.

  • Delilah

    This must be what Sarah Palin’s mid life crisis looks like.

  • Patti York

    Cruz had everything to do with LOSING her endorsement. He should have kept his mouth shut about “New York values”. That was an unnecessary shot across the bow that was exploited by Trump. He gift wrapped that one for Trump like the amateurs often do. Trump got Palin to do some damage control, after all he is persuasive. Cruz simply isn’t smart enough to know who his audience is, he is too young to be president, plus he obviously plans on being in DC for the rest of his life. There is a gigantic anti-establishment wave overtaking the country, voters are smelling career politicians from hundreds of miles a way, and Cruz has way too much geographical ambition. Voters really want a citizen lead government,,not people who do nothing but campaign all of their lives.

    • It’s more than just “an anti-Establishment” movement, Patti! It’s a LAW-AND-ORDER movement! Trump’s stating he’ll deport all illegals is why he’s so far ahead in the polls. But the media doesn’t want you to know this! They call it “voter anger”, etc.

      • Patti York

        Cruz says ALL kinds of things to tickle the ears of social conservatives and national security hawks, but honestly, I do not trust him as far as I could throw him. He has power lust in his eyes, and it is very ugly. He and Rubio say all the right things (usually), but what have either of them accomplished? They are both getting wrecked in their home states. Cruz has spent most of his life surrounding himself with people who could do things for HIM,, that stinks in my nostrils.

        • Christina

          don’t you think trump has ” power lust ” in his eyes too? I don’t trust trump as far as I can throw him either. I’d rather have a true conservative in the WH rather than a reality star any day.

          • Patti York

            No I do not. He is not my first choice. Carson is. Ted or should I say Rafael gets on my nerves. He didnt know that he held Canadian citizenship until last May?? Come on, how does someone NOT KNOW what their citizenship status is?. Or his one million dollar “clerical error”? He thinks the American people are stupid if he expects anyone to believe that. The man is a snake. Cruz is not the definition of what a conservative is,,,as much as he wants people to believe.

          • chichilouise

            I like Carson and if my child had needed brain surgery, he would have been my choice. But he does not seem to have the qualities of leadership at all. Not a bit. He seems like an introvert who is highly gifted, but who would not do well out of his area of expertise. Working alone as the surgeon in an operating room is not the same as being in the game of political bumper cars that is Washington. I just don’t think he is made for that sort of position.

          • chichilouise

            No, I don’t see power lust in Trumps eyes. He has money and power already for which he doesn’t have to answer to anyone for. When he says he sees the nation he loves in trouble and wants to make it great again, I believe him. Our true conservatives have been either eaten alive, badgered into submission, or proven false once they made it to Washington. Trump, I believe will remain the person we see. He is right that he could go back to his pent house any time and not have to deal with all this mess. Everyone else who is running is a person with little influence or wealth, and the White House and Air Force One might really be calling to them. Trump was a business man who had a reality show, he is not a reality star.

        • MaileO

          My candidate has always been Trump/Cruz until today. Listened to him on Hannity ripping Trump apart limb by limb. He was using the points from Glenn Beck who apologized for accusing Trump of voting for Obama. Then he listed reasons that voters should never consider Trump, He has endorsed Cruz and will be campaigning for him. Beck has lost his base with his hatred for Trump, he has gone off the rails mentally. Listening to Cruz today was an eye opener for me, he is not who i thought he was and totally understand why he is hated in the Senate. He is for him only.

      • Dorothy Pohl-Scot

        I doubt very much that a President Trump will deport any illegals. He is neither conservative nor Constitutional. He’s just telling people what they want to hear. He’s also a crony capitalist in saying that government mandated ethanol subsidies is a must. That’s why the Governor of Iowa loves him! Great, more corporate welfare. Just what the tax payer needs!!

    • VLParker

      And, of course, Trump is just a humble American who has no interest in power. Aw, shucks.

  • EVA-04

    Considering that Palin’s former PAC manager is Trump’s current Campaign Director, the ties between the two of them are much deeper than a single endorsement. Thematically nearly everything Trump has done on the trail has come from what SP did before.
    I would agree with Pamela: she sees that Trump could actually win, and if he does he’ll have few in his inner circle with a plan. Imagine Palin not as VP, but as White House Chief of Staff? Of course the chattering classes would piss on it but from her perspective she’s in a position to actually carry out a full remodel of the Federal govt bureaucracy.
    All I can say is that RNC was cruel to her after the ’08 loss by not supporting her during trumped up ethics complains filed by Obama partisans in Alaska. The law there prevented her from raising money for a defense fund and made her choose between the governor’s job and bankruptcy. But RNC could have helped, instead of pushing her out the door. It’s been payback every since, and you know what they say about that.

    • wilypagan

      The GOPe deserves all Sarah dishes out.

    • chichilouise

      Imagine Palin as being in charge of the Energy Department, getting the Pipeline approved and built, and taking down all the rotten regulations that are destroying the coal industry. And thank you for explaining why Palin had to quit the Governors office, I knew she was forced into it somehow but had forgotten the details.

    • Joy Daniels Brower

      OMG. Another WONDERFUL (and knowledgeable!) explanation of what REALLY happened to Sarah Palin in Alaska following the 2008 election loss. Yes, the RNC were real bastards and deserve to lose every single ounce of power that they currently have and/or dream of having. A pox on the lot of ’em!! Palin’s “revenge” would be Trump’s victory and a chance for her to work in a constructive environment!

  • Palin’s October 23, 2008 interview with UNIVISION proved to me and other Conservatives that she wasn’t a Conservative and that she’s pro-Amnesty. Trump’s showering Palin with gratitude doesn’t help him with law-and-order folks. His “touchback” Amnesty is a real concern (the reason I’m not supporting Trump) even though many Conservatives are flocking to him like geese. Palin would never support removing all illegals from the U.S., so her support for Trump must be for other reasons. Does Palin’s endorsing Trump hurt Cruz? Not much. Most Conservatives ignore the shrill.

    • C-Ann-C

      Maybe this is her reason…Cruz did a 180 on her, justified by this article by her daughter, Bristol. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/2016/01/is-this-why-people-dont-like-cruz/ —- “Is my Mom going to endorse Donald Trump for President of the United States?

      That’s the rumor, and I’ve been too busy with diapers to delve too much into politics these days. But the rumors were enough to cause staffers from Ted Cruz’s office toslam my mom.

      “I think it [would] be a blow to Sarah Palin, because Sarah Palin has been a champion for the conservative cause, and if she was going to endorse Donald Trump, sadly, she would be endorsing someone who’s held progressive views all their life on the sanctity of life, on marriage, on partial-birth abortion,” Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler said on CNN’s “New Day.”

      I like Cruz. In fact, I met him last year, and I believe anyone’s better than Hilary Clinton. But here’s the thing, Sen. Cruz. My mom has consistently supported you and encouraged you. You’ve been a great advocate for conservative causes, and she’s stood by you when others haven’t.

      “I would not be in the U.S. Senate today if it were not for Governor Palin,” you’ve said before. After hearing what Cruz is now saying about my mom, in a negative knee-jerk reaction, makes me hope my mom does endorse Trump. Cruz’s flip-flop, turning against my mom who’s done nothing but support and help him when others sure didn’t, shows he’s a typical politician. How rude to that he’s setting up a false narrative about her!

      America doesn’t need that. We need someone who has a vision for economic prosperity, who won’t let us get kicked around in the world, and who will fight for our future.

      I didn’t go to Harvard Law School, but I know this: You can like two people in a race, but there will only one president.

      The audacity to suggest that because she chooses one over the other will somehow “damage” her just shows arrogance.

      You’ve also said, “She can pick winners!” I hope you’re right, and that she endorses Donald Trump today for President.” ———————

      I, too have a “vision”….that the more bashing of both these candidates, no matter who’s bashing who for what reason has no bearing! What it WILL do is cause those Cruz-bots, the Carson-bots, and any others to stay home, AGAIN, this November when we have to elect a President to save America, again! And there goes our FREEDOMS and LIBERTIES because these supporters will NOT vote for any other candidate but THEIRS and THEY will be the CAUSE of a HILLARY WIN! I stated that in my main reply to Pamela Geller, to just GET OVER IT! STOP the rants on our OWN Party candidates and go after HILLARY! Not TRUMP, not CRUZ, not CARSON and the rest…GO AFTER HILLARY!! This is what the ESTABLISHMENT (GOPe) WANTS!! To DIVIDE US so that THEY will NOMINATE JEB BUSH!!! Do YOU want THAT?!?!?!!?? THEY are going to NOMINATE JEB BUSH because they see that we are DIVIDED amongst the CRUZ’s and TRUMPs, and CARSONs, and THEY are LOVING IT!!! DO you know that the RNC (Republican National Convention) is made up of DELEGATES from EVERY state, which whom are also from PRECINCTS who were elected during a PRECINCT REORGANIZATION (or ReOrg) DAY???!! Have you EVER heard of that?!!?! Well I HAVE! Because I am and Executive Committeeman (or EC) AND also a DELEGATE, because I was ELECTED for that position in my PRECINCT. Unfortunately, I might not go to the RNC if I’m not voted to go, but I was able to go the State GOP Convention when they were supposed to vote on the delegates to go to the RNC…but that didn’t happen in my state, (SC). They told us that a separate “ballot” will go to the state delegates to vote for the RNC delegates to go to the RNC. But this is how both the DNC and RNC conventions work! the DELEGATES nominate their person to represent THEM against the other party! But the PRIMARY is CRUCIAL in getting ALL to VOTE their candidates! If you people would have known HOW this election goes, then maybe more of you would have turned out for your PRECINCT REORGANIZATION day! Only TWO (2) people showed up for my precinct (out of 1,000)!! So I was made the EC and delegate, the other lady was my Precinct President and delegate. That’s HOW this works!!! If you missed your ReORG, you MISSED EVERYTHING!!

  • Lynn Westrich

    Pamela You usually make sense but this time you are eating our own. You obviously don’t own a business. Trump made that donation because he thought it was for a good cause and if you are a billionaire you have to endorse both sides. Quit putting down Sarah Palin, you sound like the left! How do you know the pressures she was put under and how she was belittled. Do you have a child with Down’s Syndrome? Sarah will help us win and that is the goal. Trump will appoint people who are right for the job and if they don’t perform they will be replaced.

    • Sarah

      Having a child with down syndrome doesn’t mean you’re automatically noble, so don’t use that as a cop-out for her behavior. She endorsed the establishment in our last senate race in Iowa and now we have Ernst, who’s good for little, thanks in part to Palin’s backstabbing. It’s about time someone took off the gloves and told the truth about her, however unpopular. The fact is, we are thinking people, so we don’t need to make golden calves of human beings, standing up for both their bad behavior as well as their good. We’re smart; we can approve the good and denounce the bad. Unfortunately, the good Palin did years ago has been far overshadowed by her recent bad.

      Also, Trump buying off politicians for his businesses was unethical. If my business lived or died on whether I bribed a politician, I’d let it go under. Nothing’s worth becoming a snake.

      • Yitzhak

        Trump versus Hilary for the win!
        GET OFF THE TRUMP HIGHWAY!!!

        • Cate

          Hillary is on her way to a conviction. I’d love to see her do time, but she and Bill will pay people off, and destroy others, to keep her out. But, I still want to see…

          Hillary for prison, 2016!

          • Yitzhak

            lol doubt it though – those people are too powerful and the system is too corrupt.

      • Aaron

        You’re missing the point on the Downs child issue. It’s not that it makes a person more “noble.” The point is that Leftist media brutalized Palin on that–probably because they thought she should have aborted. But since they couldn’t publicly attack her with that accusation, they floated the “you can’t be a ‘good mother’ and parent a Downs child if you have any other job.” Pretty low and not a feminist position coming from the feminist camp.

        Lower in this thread, commenters are posting a review about the Left’s nuisance lawsuit witch hunt against Palin, which was costing Palin herself hundreds of thousands of dollars and the State of Alaska millions. So she quit because it was becoming unfeasible to stay in office to take merely care of the non-stop obstacles the Left was promoting.

        Now, sorry to disappoint–I’m actually not at all a fan of Sarah Palin. But personal attacks from Pamela like “Palin’s a coward, she’s a quitter, she’s a phony, she’s an opportunist, she’s not conservative” damages Pamela much more than it does Palin.

    Great article! If only Palin had half your insight & courage, we might not have to face the nightmare that is Trump.

    • Yitzhak

      You see Pamela? You empowered the enemies of America.

  • richhahn

    Pamella. I think you caught Beckitis.

    You and Palin and Trump have a lot more in common than you are willing to admit. All of you are needed in the fight against Radical Islam, each in their own way.

    • Yitzhak

      Allahu Frackbar!
      United we stand!

    • Underzog

      Trump…fights against wadikle Islam by screaming at Pamela Geller for daring to defy them even when faced with death. Trump is a fraud and a poseur and I am disappointed in Sarah Palin for endorsing him.

      • chichilouise

        Trump was wrong in his reaction to Pamela Geller’s fight for free speech in Garland, TX. I also kind of wonder why drawing Mohammed, just because the Muzzies hate it, is a good idea. ‘I am doing this to prove that you have no right to insist that I have no right to do it.’ I wasn’t against her for doing it, I just would not have done it myself. I was sorry he criticized her for holding that conference, but I don’t know that I disagree with him, either. I support Pamela when she speaks of the evils and danger of Islam; I just don’t know that violating their taboos is a real fight against evil, not because I value their taboos. Since I find it so hard to say what I felt about that event myself, I can understand how someone could say something about it that sounds stupid but might be mostly true, actually.

        • Underzog

          The reason it was a good idea to draw Mohammed is because those evil doers should not be able to dictate culture through terroristic murder. Defiance of evil is a noble thing, even if it offends cowards and Muslim terrorists. Also, if those sharia hitmen had not been killed in Texas evidence shows that they would have hit a more unsuspecting target such as a superbowl so the death of the two Muslim terrorists probably prevented a successful terrorist attack by them elsewhere..

    Pamela:
    A big round of applause on your article. Lest we forget what the trumpster said way back when you held your ” draw Muhammad ” contest in Garland TX. He said you shouldn’t have done that! How’s that for someone who supports ( supposedly ) free speech!

    • Yitzhak

      That’s trivial on the scale of things. Trump did it a better way. He drew MudMudbud in a different way.

      • Freedom of speech (and the Constitution) are “trivial’???

        That’s pure craziness.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgFD03kAA28

        • Yitzhak

          No, Pamela’s efforts were trivial compared to what Donal Trump did – he got a national debate going – The way Pamela acts , so hysterical it’s difficult to get people to listen.Trump has the better approach.
          The type of hyperbole you and Geller present does our cause some damage.

          • Exactly which “national debate” are you giving Trump credit for beginning now? He’s been given credit for starting nearly all of them (even though they’ve all been discussed for decades).

            “The type of hyperbole you and Geller present does our cause some damage.” – What hyperbole?? And, where the hell has Pamela been hysterical? “MudMudBud” is hyperbole. I don’t talk like that. Pamela doesn’t talk like that. You’re out of your mind (or you just don’t know what hyperbole means).

            If you are a Trump supporter, then you and I have no similar “cause.” I love and believe in freedom and the United States Constitution. Trump believes in neither. He only SAYS he does to dupe people. He’s done a very good job of that (duping people, that is). None of his actions over the past several decades of his life prove that he believes in much other than playing the very political “game” he rails against today. The lip service he pays to several topics (being Christian, banning Muslims, building a border fence, believing in free speech/1st & 2nd Amend/entire Constitution, pro-life, etc.) doesn’t fool me. I’m sorry he’s fooled you. He’s fooling many, unfortunately.

          • Yitzhak

            Mudmudbud is a deliberate insult which expresses my opinion not hyperbole, it’s not news reporting.
            Geller did NOT start any national debate about Muslims though she has been trying for years – the MSM don’t pay much attention-to her. half the articles on this site are very unprofessional in a journalistic sense which gives ammunition to her enemies. And I am saying that from being on Pamela’s side.
            Trump on the other hand has the entire British press and British Parliament debating on whether to ban him or not. It’s driving their entire nation INSANE.
            And the same with the American ENEMEDIA – he is driving them insane and rolling up the numbers for support.
            I don’t support Trump, I want him for President. He is a weapon we can use and we have no other weapon.
            Get over your pettiness.

  • CanadaGoose1

    Still it was great to hear her politically incorrect speech. Especially the part about the American sailors being humiliated. Of course Cnn just covered the part at the rally where Trump criticized.

  • CanadaGoose1

    CNN just covered the part where Trump criticized Cruz.

  • Karl

    haha….Pam, you saying that Palin was screeching is the pot calling the kettle black…..lol….too funny

  • Lady Gwnyfar

    You can always count on Pamela Geller to tell the truth no matter what

    • chichilouise

      Except in this situation.

      • Lady Gwnyfar

        You might disagree with her but there are a lot of people who don’t and they don’t have the balls to speak their truth. Now you’ve gone and called her a liar …

        • chichilouise

          Not taking the time to research the facts about Sarah Palin and thus writing incorrectly about what happened and why she quit does not make someone a liar. Being wrong does not always mean being a liar, but I guess it has the same effect, which is why I wish Pamela, whom I support and cheer on, had taken the time to research what drove Palin out of her Governor’s job.

  • RCCA

    Pamela, you have said you were pro-choice and for equal rights for all under the law, including gays. So you’re not a “pure” conservative either, or you’ve changed your positions. IDK

    Why repeat the same insane insistence on nominating a “pure” conservative candidate (like you did with Santorum) who has no chance of winning the general election?

    Trump doesn’t want to lose Iowa and his momentum. That’s why he brought in Palin at this time. She’s never been as stupid as people have claimed — she wants to see the Republicans nominate someone who can win the presidency and that’s not Cruz.

    • TheShadowmaster

      Cruz will lose. He’s another bland, boring Republican. Trump is a fighter. He fights back against his opponents. Democrats play hardball. Republicans like Cruz play softball. Trump uses hand grenades and brass knuckles.

      • Yes, it’s quite interesting to watch :)

      • RCCA

        I don’t see Cruz’s problem as being bland and boring. His problem is that he doesn’t love “the people.” He’s only in love with himself and his intellect and ideology. He loves his own family I’m sure, but that’s about it. His naked ambition for power is his driving force.

        • Kathleen Kahl

          If Cruz was only interested himself and power he would be establishment and the establishment hates him and his idea of the government following the constitution.

          • RCCA

            ?? Because he is only interested in his own intellectual position he ignores the establishment. I think you have succeeded in arguing my point.

          • Paula Coyle

            re Cruz “he ignores the establishment.” because the establishment is ignoring YOU and what is best for this country. Problem with that?

          • RCCA

            The point in a democracy is that many different interests exist and have to work out their differences. I am quite sure you have no idea what is best for me, just as I have no idea what is best for you. I just know that as Americans we must find common ground for the majority, while protecting the rights of the minority, not just the special interests who buy politicians.

          • pbob67

            Never in the life of our nation, has the constitution been reduced to what it is. It has not only been Obama, it has been “Republicans” as well for decades it has been thumped hard. respect for our flag, our history, our faith, … Cruz is a good man, nonetheless, standing on the constitution when none of your fellow “Republicans” will not stand there with you, means you are in deep do-do. Trump will restore the constitution one RINO at a time if necessary.

            Yeah, look at all the attack ads by Bush. Lunatic fringe liar.

          • Well he supported the establishment with money to nrsc which supported Thad Cochran against the tea party. He has not campaigned for any conservative candidate. He wrote an op ed with Paul Ryan supporting TPP, and voted for the first leg of it. He supports HB 1 visa increases of 500%. He and his wife are globalist owned. There will be no slow down musim immigration.

        • C-Ann-C

          He was the reason why Palin endorsed Trump. Palin’s daughter, Bristol, read what a Cruz staffer said against her mom, Sarah, and asked her to support Trump, so she did. This is the link: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/2016/01/is-this-why-people-dont-like-cruz/ —- This is what Bristol wrote: “Is my Mom going to endorse Donald Trump for President of the United States?

          That’s the rumor, and I’ve been too busy with diapers to delve too much into politics these days. But the rumors were enough to cause staffers from Ted Cruz’s office toslam my mom.

          The audacity to suggest that because she chooses one over the other will somehow “damage” her just shows arrogance.

          You’ve also said, “She can pick winners!” I hope you’re right, and that she endorses Donald Trump today for President.” ——— Right you are, Bristol! Glad that your mom listened to YOU! Shows the others that she knows how to LISTEN to her children, and makes the RIGHT decision for them, for our country! NOT FOR SPECIAL FAVORS!!

            Could you tell me what was in the statement from Cruz’s team that was not true or incorrect? Sarah did a lot of damage to her brand.

          • Paula Coyle

            Her kids are a disgrace. Sarah makes decisions based on her kids feelings? What leadership.

            She blamed her son’s PTSD and his arrest for domestic violence on Obama and “not being respected.” Doesnt every bully? HE’s been a problem all his life. How does she explain her daughter punching some guy in the face at a party repeatedly, then, after which the whole family got ejected from the party? (Sept 2014) I’ve heard the audio of the family screeching at the cops afterward. Sarah is an embarrassment with NO leadership presence whatsoever. No wonder she is hooking up with another charlatan.

          • kayerob

            If you are going to bring in Sarah’s kids do I get to bring in Cruz’s wife? You know she was found sitting on the side of the road after she had walked away for her house and left her kids.. She was hysterical and the police deemed her a danger to herself and took her in to be evaluated. Turns out she was depressed because she had to eave New York and live in Texas. I mean that is so rough, a lot harder than going to war.

            I love how you accuse Trump of being the establishment, only to immediately copy all of the anti-Palin liberal talking points once she does something you don’t like. You’d write how very Christian it is to care for the family first and stuff like that if she endorsed Cruz, who is a corrupt lunatic – like you.

          He loves the Constitution and freedom, and by extension cares about Americans. He is willing to annoy the daylights out of the establishment in order to stand up for the Constitution as best he can. Most of the rest of the Congress don’t care that they took an oath to uphold the Constitution. Ted Cruz is one of the few who does care. I think you basing your conclusion on surface impressions instead of digging a little deeper. If his driving ambition was for power, he’d be stomping all over the Constitution with the rest of those in Congress.

          • RCCA

            Most of the rest of Congress doesn’t care about upholding the Constitution? That’s far fetched, to say the least. Cruz is running for President, not Constitutional scholar in chief. That’s a big difference. We all know he’s been a top lawyer but do you know he is only a first term Senator, elected in 2013? How do you have confidence that somehow he’s got the experience to be President of the US? Talk about being influenced by surface impressions! His whole website is a testament to his legal victories, but little to indicate he has any ability to lead or experience dealing with conflicting interests. see: tedcruz dot org If you didn’t know better you would think he was running to be the next Attorney General.

            Cruz makes his disdain for people who disagree with him palpable, even fellow Republicans. So I can imagine that Cruz would cause even greater polarization and animosity among people and get nothing done at all.

            He excites fellow conservatives on an intellectual level. But as I said, I doubt he will get the nomination, let alone win a general election.

          • hankgoodness

            Everything you’re saying about Cruz is true of Trump, and not of Cruz. Only loves himself, has no experience for this job of POTUS and no proven track record of fighting for anything other than Trump, a true opportunist with no moral compass, no regard for our Constitution, ……, oh it’s pointless to talk to you.

            You have that backward. Trump has gotten where he is by cheating people (oh yes, he is not the great businessman you think, he’s a snake oil salesman who will destroy you if you become a PR threat to him). He makes bad decisions and then gets out of them by screwing over a lot of little people who can’t do anything about it.

            Yes, they all take the oath to uphold the Constitution.

        Baloney. Trump accused Cruz of not playing nicey-nice with the Senate establishment.

        Cruz has a consistent set of well-thought-out principles. Trump has none, except that he firmly believes in his own greatness.

        There’s not much point in having a “fighter” without knowing what he would actually fight FOR. Obama is a fighter too.

        With Trump, it’s first AND MOST a matter of fighting to make himself the winner. That’s what his whole life has been about. He’ll trample over anyone to do it. He insinuated that Ben Carson is mentally unstable. He called Cruz a “nasty” guy that no one likes — and Cruz, in response, declined to respond to Trump’s nastiness in kind.

        Trump has shown again and again what a shape-shifting, uncivilized, egotistical phoney he is. And Trumpbots have shown again and again that they will not hold him to any standards of honesty or decency, or even apply basic REASON in evaluating him.

        • Chuck Wolk-Ness

          You right. Hell Donald Trump believes his sister, a federal judge on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, would be a “phenomenal” Supreme Court justice.

          Think about that. His sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry wrote, in 2000, that it should be legal to kill babies up to the point of departing their mother’s womb. Donald’s sister called a New Jersey law against partial birth abortion a “desperate attempt” to undermine Roe v. Wade.

          Do we really want a President who will appoint a Supreme Court Justice who will rule in favor of partial Birth Abortion. Judges more in tune with his sister, and the leftists like So do we want to chance that he may appoint Judges more in line with ,Kagan, Sotomayor, Ginsburg, and Breyer?

          We are but one liberal judge away from losing the 2nd Amendment right to own guns. Do we really want to trust the next couple of SC Appointees on the Donald?

          • No, he said he would halt muslim immigration and build a wall. Very clear on that. I am not worshiping Trump. I want the immigration stopped.

            She is his sister, is he supposed to say she stinks? She said she would not do it and he said he would not ask her., John Roberts WAS hand picked by Ted Cruz and look we got Obama care. Anthony Kennedy was also a repub appointment and he gave us gay marriage. But most of all I would say, abortion has been a litmus test for Republican candidates for 40 years, yet we have more liberal abortion laws that Western Europe. So I think I will try something different. Thanks though.

This he referred to as the Seven mountains Mandate. Ted would bring back the spoils of war to the priest. This will bring about the great transfer of wealth from the wicked to the righteous gentiles.

          I’m an outsider here – an Australian – so I don’t have any particular ‘dog in this fight’, to use an American expression.

          But I’m interested in what happens in US politics because to some degree it affects what happens in the domestic politics of its western allies [particularly amongst the Anglo’s: UK; OZ; NZ; & Canada].

          I’ve watched all of Trump’s campaign speeches. I can see that he is popular and I can also appreciate why that might be: because the Republican party establishment has repeatedly sold out its base; again and again and again.

          But having watched those campaign speeches I just don’t get it. It is all about ‘me, me, me’ with Trump. There is nothing there in terms of policy except for what are clearly populist thought bubbles. He is a good showman, I’ll grant you, but it is all about Donald.

          For me, looking at the thing as an outsider, Cruz surely is your best candidate, with perhaps Carson and/or Fiorina a close second.

          Anyway, no doubt you will do what you will do – and for the sake of the rest of us who are your allies, I can only just hope that whoever you do pick is capable of beating Clinton [or, God forbid, Sanders].

      • NJK

        Not a fighter? Is that because he doesn’t have a big mouth? Do you want someone who will protect the country and your freedoms, or do you want to be entertained?

        Trump said he wants to make deals. Isn’t that what the establishment and the left have been doing for seven years? Is he going to deal away part of the Bill of Rights, or keep it all.

        Trump is not genuine. He is a charlatan, and Sarah Palin is as well.

        Cruz has authored 80+ SCOTUS briefs and presented 40+ oral arguments before The Court

        Cruz served as a law clerk to Chief Justice William Rehnquist. Cruz was the first Hispanic ever to clerk for a Chief Justice of the United States

        Described as a ‘superb’ constitutional lawyer, the man’s considerable skills and laser-like focus were on display for all last week when he took oily reptile Eric Holder by the neck and made him answer the frickin question.

        In the landmark case of District of Columbia v. Heller, Cruz assembled a coalition of 31 states in defense of the principle that the 2nd Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms.

        Cruz presented oral argument for the amici states in the companion case to Heller before the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

        In addition to his victory in Heller, Cruz has successfully defended the Ten Commandments monument on the Texas State Capitol grounds, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools and the majority of the 2003 Texas redistricting plan. Cruz also successfully defended, in Medellin v. Texas, the State of Texas against an attempt by the International Court of Justice to re-open the criminal convictions of 51 murderers on death row throughout the United States.

            Makes me think of Elijah standing up against the 400 prophets of Baal. he certainly was called to ‘take charge’ of the heathens. Or the young King, was it Josiah? who found the scrolls of the Law behind the altar and brought the people back to righteousness. You can personally believe anything you like, but you don’t know that about God, one way or the other.

            Did I say that you know nothing about God? Did I say that all are false prophets and only I am real? I just questioned an opinion you gave in which you don’t believe God will give us a righteous president because there are so many heathens in this nation. Reagan was a righteous man. There were maybe not as many heathens in 1980, but then again, maybe there were not as many believers in in Jesus in 1980, either.

        The reason the establishment is upset with Cruz is because Cruz *doesn’t* play softball. The reason people want Trump is because they seem not to notice when he hurts someone THEY don’t care about. Cruz is careful not to go too far. You call that boring, I call it wise. You see that the establishment is now calling Trump (he bragged just the other night) to see how they can help him. They know which one is more likely to be compromised by them.

And no matter who the politician is, they won’t do half of what they say they will, once they are in office. That’s the way it works, too.

          Most evolve to become more leftist and pro abortion, such as Al Gore and Jesse Jackson did. How often does a politician ‘evolve’ to being against abortion? I gather that Trump always thought abortion was wrong, but that it was a woman’s choice. So, whatever ‘evolution’ he has undergone has probably taken him away from the ‘murder is her choice’ stance.

            Thank you for filling in the details of his change of heart. I myself initially was for abortion in cases of rape, not being able to imagine myself carrying a rapists child, and it took a dear friend to remind me that the baby was not guilty of its fathers crime. Reading testimonies of those who were the results of a rape has cemented this for me. They are alive as they should be, and their mothers who were raped were not then subjected to the horrors and regret of abortion.

          • I am GLAD he had a change of heart. I know how horrible abortion is.
            Helped out many women as much as I could.

          He started changing his position in 2000 for personal reasons when he saw what abortion did psychologically.

To the contrary, Trump is a big time liberal, and, sooner or later, we will see that the emperor has no clothes.

          Cruz now has three suits filed against him in Texas for purposely misreporting those loans. If he is a genius tell me why everyone else can file correctly but Ted. Even on the filing he made that would just be seen at the senate he did not disclose that he had used the loans for the campaign. He changes his vote on crop insurance mid vote and then says he did not know what they were voting on. Somehow Rand and Rubio did. When Pat Roberts said he changed his vote because he had talked to him, which you can see on video, he calls him a liar.

            So, you’re the master of copy and paste. You should do the actual research yourself. And by the way, it’s not a ‘birther conspiracy.’ Trump has been a private citizen, made his own way, and hasn’t made a pile of dough sucking off the government teat, like Cruz has. Of course he’s going to change his opinion about things. He’s a private citizen. He’s entitled to do so, as are the rest of us. I’ve changed my positions on things over the years, and I’ll bet you have, too. He didn’t spend his entire career calculating every move in order to become a president like those who’ve spent most or all of their careers in big gov. And frankly, I like that.

            These big government guys who like to say they have all the experience have been in government for long while. They have cushy big gov jobs and nice cushy big gov salaries. They haven’t slogged it out in the private sector (Cruz did, but only for a few years.). I’m pretty sick and tired of the gov establishment. They don’t give a rats you-know-what about any of the electorate. They view the regular citizens as a necessary evil, nothing else. We are viewed as the stupid, unwashed masses, that need to be led around by our noses.

            I’m taking my chances with Trump. He’s not perfect, but none of us are. We’re not hiring Jesus Christ, we’re hiring a president.

          We should get monogrammed luggage next since you know me so well.

        • The way that you holier than thou’s talk to people gets you the reactions you are receiving.
          I never said I thought Trump was a Conservative. I believe he is a loud mouthed moderate.

          BUT-Where were you for 30 years as this nation went to pot?

          Did you write letters to the editor, did you submit op’eds? Did you go to town hall meetings as the illegals were ravaging this nation? Did you go to city hall meetings addressing these issues?
          Did you have your car shotgunned after you stood up to city hall?
          Your apartment vandalized after standing up to your town council?

          Facts:
          You didn’t do a thing.
          America has what it deserves. They allowed this nation to die a slow, painful death.
          I will go to my grave knowing I did EVERYTHING I could for almost 35 years. PHYSICALLY, not armchair commando.

          • moidao

            I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings, really. For all your reasons cited above about the directions this country is heading, I believe Ted Cruz is the right person for the job…a consistent conservative, a Reagan conservative.

      • kayerob

        Thanks Cruz fans lie with regularity.

    • Joy Daniels Brower

      Hear! Hear! This has been an amazing and confounding two days, as Palin has, as Pam has rightly observed, “jumped the shark.” But as much as I’ve always considered myself a Conservative (Goldwater for POTUS!!), I’m also practical and can see what Palin sees in Trump – an opportunity, yes, but only to be on the winning side! I think we’re all sick & tired of losing elections (mostly with RINOs, of course), but Trump has just enough “conservative” bona fides to attract me as well. At the very least, he won’t be a quisling like Oboza or an Islamist-lover like the empty suit. And as much as I really like Cruz (thanks to Palin’s early & definitive support of his Senate bid!), I don’t think he really stands a chance this election cycle. The enemedia and the Demonkraps would bury him!

      • I just want Dems out of power, they’re Communists.
        GOP is really ‘not better’, but they can at least halt this madness.
        Trump/Cruz, Cruz/Trump is fine by me.

        • Joy Daniels Brower

          Actually, MJ, I totally agree with you! That is really the best (and winning) ticket!

    • Paula Coyle

      Because Trump hasn’t changed. He’s just lying. If you can’t tell that, I can’t help you. Remember when he was against the establishment? Now he’s attacking the guy who is against the establishment and the establishment is lining up to support Trump. Why? Because they know who REALLY IS against the establishment.

      If we wanted Bill and Hillary Clinton’s shenanigans back in the White House we could just vote for Hillary.

      • RCCA

        The “establishment” might be lining up to support Trump because he’s more likely to win the election. Ever think of that? Like maybe that’s the important thing here to think about?

        If you think Cruz would win over Clinton I can’t help you. Cruz has no chance of appealing to the vast center of voters, which is necessary at this point because Republicans can’t win without some crossover. Heck, Cruz doesn’t even appeal to most Republicans.

    • Paula Coyle

      If you’re OK with this you are NOT OK.

  • mam646

    The Dems are going to win if we keep snipping like this. Ugh.

  • Aaron

    Cruz has yet to provide any answer regarding his co-sponsoring of the Corker Bill–the bill that paved the way for Congressional support of Obama’s Iran deal, which is clearly a disaster for America and Israel, as well as the entire free world. While Senator Cruz touts his own Constitutional Law expertise, why did he throw away the Senate’s role and prerogative in such agreements? Cruz’ silence one of the most dangerous actions in history boggles. He needs to deal with it. People tend to project who they are and what they want onto political candidates. “Trust but verify” needs to be the motto on all of these candidates.

    What may be far more important than the differences between Cruz and Trump is that Nazi George Soros is funding the campaigns of BOTH Hillary and Bernie. That’s a lot of power being delivered to the Democrat party candidate front runners.

  • Ladoj

    Sarah Palin resigned to get the countless frivolous complaints against her out of the governor’s office, and the money they cost the state, away from the burden of taxpayers.

    Sarah Palin served 32 out of 48 months the same percentage that Obama served of his Senate term (not including the two-year break he spent campaigning) and accomplished everything she set out to do in that time.

    After Sarah Palin accepted John McCain’s offer to run for vice president and became the left’s (media) most attacked and vilified person she returned to Alaska to find a never-ending assault of frivolous ethics complaints paralyzing her ability to govern the state.

    She saw that if she stayed on as Governor it would continue to cost the state millions of dollars in wasted time and resources to defend against false and maliciously ethics complaints and doom it to gridlock.

    Those frivolous lawsuits had already cost the state of AK close to $2 million; Sarah Palin had over $500,000 dollars in legal fees. (Palin was responsible for her own legal fees ).

    No sooner would one lawsuit go away then another was filed.
    She resigned so the state could move forward.

    She promised to keep the frivolous anti-Palin law suits away from the Alaskan people and to be more effective on the stump ( supporting candidates , fundraising, etc) Sarah Palin was truthful on both accounts!

    She was the catalyst for the takeover of the House , twice as many Governships and lopsided Gop Statehouses with her endorsements and rallies all over the country during the 2010 election.

    Sarah Palin also had a very strong hand in the party’s few successes during the 2012 and 2014 election.

    • richhahn

      Sarah had to pay her own legal expenses, not the state.

      • Ladoj

        Yes, Sarah had to pay her own legal expenses. Because of a since-fixed quirk in Alaska law, the Palin family had to pay all of these legal bills out of their own pocket.

        Most people just note that Sarah Palin “quit” as governor of Alaska without pointing out the “why” behind it.

        When she resigned as Governor, she was labeled a quitter. I assure you that if she hadn’t resigned, she would have been painted by many as a self-centered hypocrite who didn’t care about Alaska. They would have argued that she prioritized the preservation of her political future over the fact that frivolous ethics charges against her were draining the resources of the governor’s office.

        Sarah Palin knew that for the sake of her state it would be best if she stepped aside from the governorship. She resigned so the state could move forward.

        • Joy Daniels Brower

          Hear! Hear! Read my own comments (above); you’ll see that I am MOST grateful for your posting that excellent explanation of the TRUTH of the situation (of which most who bashed her and continue to do so, did not understand at all).

    • Joy Daniels Brower

      Thank you MUCHO for laying out the TRUTH about Palin and her absolute NEED to quit if she were to stop the money hemorrhaging from the state coffers – and, as you point out – from her own personal bank account as well. Subsequent to this disastrous situation, the State legislature passed a law that would relieve state officials from paying out of pocket for lawsuits against them in their official capacity. But this protection was not in place when Palin was assaulted with all those frivolous lawsuits; so, instead of courting personal and family bankruptcy, she opted for the only SANE decision: Namely, quit and attend to your personal business immediately! Those who followed and supported her totally understood the pressure under which she was operating and fully understood and supported her position.

    • MistyDawn

      Thank you for explaining the true reason behind Palin’s giving up her governorship.. I love you Pamela and admire and respect you for all the work you do. I know you put up with a lot of abuse but always fiercely stand up to it and you are definitely a fighter.

      However I really am so disappointed in what you have said about Sarah Palin. I feel that was way beneath you,Pamela and sounds so much like sour grapes because she didn’t back Cruz.

      .I like Cruz but I don’t think he can pull in all the diverse factions of Americans that will be needed to defeat Clinton like Trump can. And as far as being the most conservative candidate I am sick and tired of putting them in office and having them act like progressives.

      I don’t want to put another establishment conservative in office again and this time I will take my chances with Trump.He has the name recognition all over the world and the reputation of a man with the ability to get things done.

  • dba_vagabond_trader

    Pam you have hit on two points that have also bothered me. Sarah Palin quitting and Donald Trump attacking our freedom of speech. The former I can understand the financial aspect, if that was the reason, the latter has no credible explanation other than Trump does not “get” islam. OTOH, Cruz has supported amnesty, a yuuuge negative for me. Never knew that Mrs Palin backed off the GZ mosk battle.

    • chichilouise

      Trump ‘gets’ Islam or he wouldn’t be saying we should stop letting Muslims immigrate. Trump just seemed to feel that fighting Islam by drawing pictures or cartoons of Mohammed was ……something less than a good idea. I am not sure what. If not for that feisty security guard, a lot of people would have died at that event. Maybe it isn’t an effective way to spar and square off against the religion of the Beast.

      • dba_vagabond_trader

        It wasn’t about the drawings, it was about the unfettered exercise of free speech by free people. By calling free speech a “bad idea” Trump is submitting to sharia, something Pam Geller and many others have fought against for years. Apparently you don’t “get it” either.

  • Ladoj

    No other person in politics, man or woman, has had as much hate, vitriol and lies told about them by the media as Sarah Palin but she has not faltered or retreated. I doubt anyone else could have withstood the intense scrutiny that she has undergone.

    The media even went through pages and pages of Palin Emails (24,000+ pages of emails from Palin’s term as governor), looking for damning information that could wipe Sarah Palin from America’s political scene.

    What they found was the inner workings of an efficient, informed and very involved governor that mounted an unprecedented 80 plus approval rating while in office…..not exactly what the death squads of WaPo, the NYT, and other mainstream outlets had in mind.

    The Palin Emails (24,000+ pages of emails) show that Sarah Palin conducted the business of her state in a transparent and responsible manner. She worked long, hard hours and treated everyone with respect.

      Not true, Carson was the FIRST to effectively answer questions on the subject AND he is more knowledgeable on this subject than the Donald.

      • Yitzhak

        Carson? I said HOPE not dead corpses right or wrong as they may be.

      • chichilouise

        Carson is no leader. Being right about many things doesn’t mean one also has the gifts of leadership. Carson is an intellectual and brilliant, that is true, but he is so soft spoken and quiet that I suspect he does not belong in any position that involves thinking on one’s feet or leading the charge up Bunker Hill.

        • Patti York

          You have to really KNOW the enemy before beating them. Carson is better versed than Trump in this area.

          • chichilouise

            I like Carson too, I just think that knowledge isn’t enough. Does he have the administrative skills to appoint cabinet members and be in charge of myriads of functions, selecting people with the skills to accomplish while he is delegating? I don’t think he has the personality type.

  • Jeff Simon

    I agree with Pamela. Sarah seems to be making this move for herself more than for the Tea Party. And that Voice….

  • Commieobamie

    I liked it. Trump is the ONLY one with a valid chance to WIN. Trump may not be the best choice as a conservative, but he has the BEST chance to cross the lines and get Independents and even commie Dems to vote for him. The commie Dems will never vote for any of the other Republican candidates. Deal with it. WE NEED an American in the Oval Office, not another lying filthy commie islamo loving gay retard.

  • KristenSuzanneM

    There are very good reasons why she did it, at least in her mind. Something that cannot be discounted. I realize why those who advocate conservatism are disappointed but SP has been raked over the coals by the Democrat left, the MSM, the GOP establishment and everyone else in between. I’m a Ted Cruz supporter and this was a blow. But I suspect something is going on and until we get settled on the final Republican candidate, this is where we’re headed. Let’s just take a step back and breathe slowly so we can continue forward. And wait.

    • RebinTexas

      Nicely put Kristen…..I have issues with both Cruz and Trump (and I worked for Cruz to become Senator) – the person I trust the most, based on her consistent positions and actions, is Sarah Palin. I guarantee she pinned Trump to the mat on a number of his positions – and if he changes at all – she will call him out on it.

      Liked what you said very much – especially since most all of US are wanting to save our beloved country and begin to restore it…..

      • KristenSuzanneM

        I know exactly what you mean, Reb. I’m a Connecticut Yankee transplant to the great State of Texas and the only reason I voted for McCain in 2008 was because of Sarah Palin. I voted for Ted Cruz to be our Senator. And I admit it, I’m more than a bit disappointed about what occurred but I realize there are a lot of things going on behind the scenes that none of us are aware. I got the feeling and it was pointed out by a friend who lives across the ‘Pond’ in the UK that he sensed something going on between Trump and Cruz. I saw and felt it too; some kind of chemistry no one knows about. So we’ll most assuredly see what transpires. That’s why I’m watching and waiting…and why I said what I did…

    Ms Geller, you are wrong on this. Cruz is a naturalized citizen, and thus, not eligible for the presidency.

    Phyllis Schlafly, perhaps you’ve heard of her? She said Trump is the only candidate who can save our Republic.

    What has electing ‘conservatives’ gotten us??? It has gotten us screwed by the very people who were elected to reverse the damage done by obama and the dems.

    The fact that an Israel-before-America zionist shill like you hates Trump makes me want to vote for him even more. Trump 2016!

  • Rose215

    I too found this take-down of Sarah Palin disappointing. However, the comments on this which provide additional background on her resignation as Governor are particularly enlightening. Palin has been treated unfairly by the left. They are quite viscous when going after successful Conservatives. I think the point behind her endorsement was to help Trump in going after the win. I think she has made the right choice as Trump is the one person who has a shot at blocking the Dems and taking back the country. So what if he is not conservative on every issue. In my view, he is conservative enough and at least does not belong to the globalists who’s minions seem to be taking over everywhere.

  • wilypagan

    Cruz cannot win the general election because most Americans are not comfortable with his extreme views on social issues. Trump will carry the fundies and will also get the vote of the Blue Dog dems. Go Trump!

    “My good name has been dragged through the mud because of my stand for freedom and against jihad and sharia.”

    Thank you Pam for what you do! We stand with you.

  • You really have to be kidding me with this.
    Pam, as a person who needs all the help and support that you can get these days, you did yourself a disservice by writing this. You just turned off a lot of people including yours truly. She quit? She resigned. You know that. I know that. People do it every day. For less serious reasons than Palin had.
    You of all people should know what lawfare is like when it is directed at you. Lawfare is exactly what she was up against as a Governor. The GOP threw her to the wolves with no help or support. She resigned in order to take that power away from those people who were out to get not just her but her whole family.
    She may have resigned but it is clear from yesterday and the past 7 1/2 years she did not quit. She just chose a road less traveled. A different strategy.
    That strategy included helping a man who you now support into the Senate. And now, after just barely 3 years of cooking in the Senate, you all have him as a savior who walks on water.
    The man who once said that “we are not a nation who tortures Muslims. Period.” That was around the same time Palin was saying “Waterboarding would be a baptism” if SHE was in charge.
    The man who handed out ham sammys and soccer balls to illegal law breakers with the clown Glenn Beck at the border.
    If it had not been for Palin’s endorsement of Cruz in the Texas primary, you’d all be saying “Ted Who”? instead of Ted Cruz today.
    Good luck with alienating yourself Pam.

  • Steve Sanders

    I want to say that Palin understands what the people are
    looking for someone not tied to a party someone who can thumb their nose at the
    hierarchy and recommend changes. Will we get bamboozled like we did by the GOP
    last cycle? It could happen again. I know as long as we leave member of
    congress unchecked and in power for 30 years well then it my fault and this
    needs to be corrected. We need to empty the hollow halls of democracy of the
    filth and vermin that dwells their and send it out to the glue factory. Vote
    smart get rid of career politicians.

  • meangirl

    I love Sarah but I agree: “The Trump endorsement reeks of opportunism”

    That being said her son was arrested for punching his girlfriend this past Monday. I know is not Palin’s fault(she didn’t do it) . But this is politics. The MSM and the left (same thing) will use that as part of the war on women they just can’t get enough of it.

    You know how they usually smear people: Trump’s is being endorsed by the mother of a woman-abuser… Ohhh Trump is for men punching women blah blah blah.

    So, I don’t know what this endorsement will mean going forward.

  • C-Ann-C

    Get over it PAM! Sarah Palin made her choice and saw the “Vision” that Trump saw years ago before Cruz entered the picture! Trump is a solid, hard working, developer that made cities like San Francisco, Chicago, and NYC to be the most touristy visited cities in America building his Trump Towers, hotels, golf courses, since those cities were going bankrupt! Trump saved those cities, made them popular, made them money. Trump proves his employee base of women in high positions, so he’s not against women at all, donated considerably to veteran groups, esp. disabled veterans; did Cruz ever do that? He knows how to make the DEALS because he’s done it! Has Cruz ever done that? But you, Pamela Geller, just divided the CRUZ-bots from the Trump supporters and endorsers so that if (and looks likely) he gets the nomination, the Cruz people will stay home in November and HILLARY WINS!! Just like they did in 2012!! They stayed home because THEIR candidate didn’t make the Primary and didn’t want to vote for Romney! Well I VOTED for ROMNEY even though MY candidate didn’t make the Primary because I didn’t want Obozo to win again! Unfortunately, people like YOU and the CRUZ BOTS will allow that to HAPPEN again as I’ve seen this posted on Facebook by the CRUZ BOTS saying they will NEVER VOTE for TRUMP!!! GET OVER IT, PAM, and you CRUZ BOTS! If you stay home this coming November’s election, then YOU JUST CAUSED HILLARY TO WIN and I WILL GO AFTER YOU PEOPLE, BLAME YOU, EXPOSE YOU EVERYWHERE that because of your insolent, insecure, baby rants at Trump, YOU, ALL OF YOU, will be the cause of a HILLARY PRESIDENT and OUR COUNTRY IS DONE, GONE DOWN THE DRAIN, NO LONGER AMERICA THE FREE, but AMERICA the SOCIALIST COMMY COUNTRY OF THE WORLD, because YOU PEOPLE WON’T SUPPORT ANOTHER REPUBLICAN BECAUSE YOUR CANDIDATE DIDN’T MAKE IT!!! So SCREW ALL OF YOU! STAY HOME THIS NOVEMBER! BE THE REASON HILLARY WINS!!! I’m DONE WITH YOU!

  • VLParker

    Here’s my take on Trump and Cruz, for what it’s worth.

    I find Trump to be a rude, crude, obnoxious blowhard, who has never been a conservative in his life. Now he claims to be a conservative on many issues? I doubt it. The only way to judge a political candidate is by his past stand on the issues. Rhetoric during a campaign is useless, for there is no lie candidates will not tell in order to get elected. That is a universal rule of politics. I agree with Trump on the border fence and on banning muslim immigration, although I would ban it permanently and I wouldn’t claim we need to find out what is going on because we already know what is going on. Islam is going on. Since islam is the biggest threat to the US and Trump claims he will ban muslim immigration I will give him the benefit of the doubt on that issue and the border wall issue.

    Cruz, on the other hand, has a political history of being a rock solid conservative. The GOP establishment hate him because of this. He is the leader of the opposition to the GOPe. He has talked the talk and walked the walk. However, he seems to be a bit weaker than Trump on islam. Where Trump supports a temporary ban on muslim immigration, Cruz only supports a 3 year ban from countries where ISIS or Al-Qaeda are in control. And he claims we are not at war with a faith. He insists we are at war with a political ideology and theocracy that seeks to murder us. But you cannot divorce political islam from the religious aspect. Islam is islam. It is all or nothing. And his insistence on focusing on ISIS and Al-Qaeda totally ignores the Muslim Brotherhood, which is more dangerous than ISIS or Al-Qaeda. The MB has infiltrated every political and cultural institution in America and are using stealth jihad to take over America. Cruz doesn’t seem to get this, as he insists on targeting only islamic terrorists. HIs opposition to Dr. Carson’s ‘religious test’ for a president further demonstrates Cruz’ inability to understand that the islamic religion mandates that muslims usurp the US government and bring the US into the Dar-al-islam. In his zeal to defend the Constitution he supports those whose main goal is to eliminate the first amendment’s Establishment clause and instill a caliphate in America.

    Trump does seem to get the big picture of islam a little better than Cruz does. Then again, Cruz defended Garland while Trump criticized it.

    • Ima Lindatoo

      You’re very funny. He has a HISTORY of rock solid conservative and that give Ms Gellar the right to attack and lie Sarah Palin because she didn’t endorse Cruz?

      First, he has just got in the position of voting or writing bills. HE HAS NOT ACCOMPLISHED his job in the 3 years he’s been there, as he’s been angling for another. He’s worked with Boehner and the Bushes in LAW his career.

      DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT Cruz, or even answering about the article in which #Sexism goes after Sarah Palin, a non candidate?

      • VLParker

        Perhaps you should take a Civics 101 course. In case you haven’t noticed, it takes 51 votes to pass a bill in the Senate. Cruz is one man with one vote. He has consistently voted conservatively during his time in office. It’s not Cruz’ fault if 95 of the 100 Senate members are Dems or RINOs. He did his part and that is all that he can do with only 1 vote.

        So now Pamela is a sexist? And you say I’m funny?

  • bridgingthegap

    Pamela. Read her book. She tells you why she quit the governorship. No way she is a QUITTER. She’s had her lion share of media and government incrimination. I would think you would have some sympathy for that. Though you may not approve of her choice of candidates, can she not freely choose who she wants to endorse without her being defamed as a person? This kind of assault and mockery is the nasty fruit that America needs to turn from. How about you step it up as a leader in this area? I highly respect you and admire your courage. I also promote you in my sphere of influence. But I am asking you to reconsider your verbiage when talking about those who have taken a stance against the establishment that is denigrating and trying to destroy our nation. Thank you.

  • Ory Nicholas

    My disappointment is with you, Ms. Geller, in this statement. Not Palin. You defended her resignation rather vocally at the time and in the following years. Were you not being truthful then or are you not being truthful now?

    Check your premise.

  • ‘tea party didn´t want to make an strategical alliance with blacks and mexicans.’

    I dont know where you got that. The Tea Party went out of its way to make sure the Liberals liked them.

  • chichilouise

    It was my understanding that the leftists piled up so many lawsuits against Palin if she remained governor, that she could not afford to remain in office. I would not call her a ‘quitter.’ She stood up to the oil barons in Alaska and won.

    More than anything, I do not like listening to people that I support and admire go after and belittle and judge other people that I support and admire. I am for you, Pamela, despite your not being a perfect human being any more than Sarah Palin is.

    I would appreciate it if you would not tear others to shreds, especially when it is obvious that you did not research Sarah’s decision, nor did you call her to find out about any of this. She may have just been too busy to get back to you on the Ground Zero Mosque, for she is no coward. Nor would she seem to be the sort to support a candidate just because he might be going to win, so she could get in on the gravy train. She has been despised in the major media and pummeled far more than you have, even for giving birth to her down syndrome son, and yet she has not folded, nor seemed like the sort who only wants to be on the winning side.

    Be careful before you judge people, Pamela. Yes, you are a fighter. But so is Sarah as far as I am concerned, and I don’t like to hear you try to take her down.

  • JoeyJ

    At the end of the day, there are only two outcomes for the election: Either Hillary and a progressive nightmare from which there will be no return and Trump. I don’t care what “The Donald” said or did years ago. Everything he has said since announcing is spot-on. He is literally our last chance for survival.

  • RebinTexas

    Pamela – I have been following you for years…….and I have been closely following Sarah Palin for years. You are dead WRONG about her Pamela – on so many accounts I don’t know where to start. I’ve seen the response that Mr L wrote you and concur with him 100%. Sarah Palin is the most honest, ethical, consistent leader/politician in this country….and she has worked tirelessly to help get other good people elected. Sen Cruz would NOT be a senator, if not for her.

    I say that, having met and talked with Sen Cruz on several occasions when he was running – I donated to him, worked for him, voted for him. Yet – he has done a number of things in a sneaky way that has me disillusioned – he helped get the Trade bill passed before he voted no at the end, when it made no difference. He is for a huge expansion of the H1-B visa program, and has taken lots of money this year from the big money boys in New York. There are other things, but what I am getting across is NONE of them are as we want.

    I will tell you what those of US who have closely followed and talked with Sarah Palin are sure she did do – she would have talked in some detail with Trump regarding his positions and pronouncements – because, if he starts switching on those most important to Sarah and US, she will not hesitate to speak up – just as she did with the incumbent governor in Alaska that she eventually went on to beat.

    I expected better of you than this Pamela. What you wrote is so wrong and filled with errors – that, in my humble opinion, you owe Gov Palin – and many of us an apology.

    Bob Blumentritt

  • Michelle Reiber Wood McManus

    Born in the USA…Palin has the ability to evaluate each candidates potential and choose whomever she believes will be the best President. You have to admit that she knows both candidates personally and far better than you or I. Perhaps she has gleaned insight from her previous experience and personal contacts that we are oblivious too.Surely you are not suggesting that she does not love her Country or would waste her time promoting someone that she believes is not right for this position. I stand with Sarah Palin and trust her judgement on this. Being saddened, disappointed or frustrated because she doesn’t feel exactly like you do is like shutting out friends or neighbors because they root for another team.

  • L Jones

    Another consideration is that Schlafly is also endorsing Trump and she is as conservative as they come. The campaign loans that Cruz didn’t report that came from Goldman Sachs didn’t help his cause…people still hate the banks from the mortgage fiasco days. He also has a natural born citizen problem like Obama and people just do not trust politicians anymore after having been betrayed time after time.

    Republicans, for crying in the bidet, please do not allow yourselves to be divided, or worse, divide yourselves, thereby making it a cakewalk for the democrats to win. Someone, please, think of the muslims.

    Palin went for the guy with the New York values.

    I mean,
    talk about a gut punch from a woman we on the right fell in love with.
    However, as much as it hurts those of us who stood behind her, in the
    long run I see this endorsement hurting Palin more than it helps Donald.

    Think about it. Since she was chosen by McCain as his running mate,
    Sarah has crisscrossed this nation campaigning and endorsing every right
    wing conservative who decided to take on the establishment. Say what you want, but her nominees have won more times than they lost.

    However, now that one of her greatest endorsements, Ted Cruz, is on the
    verge of making our dream come true by dethroning the establishment,
    Sarah Palin, the darling of the right, decides to endorse Donald Trump.
    It really is quite puzzling when you consider the fact that almost every
    Tea Party conservative candidate she endorsed in the last 7 years has
    thrown their support behind Ted Cruz.

    I think that Sarah has
    fallen for the same thing that many good Americans fall for when they
    spend too much time in the beltway or become famous. While Sarah and
    her children have been hobnobbing with actors, producers, screen
    writers, politicians and political pundits.

    Sarah it seems has
    became enamored with the same world that sinks every politician who
    spends too much time in the spotlight. She lost her moral compass and
    found that the people with New York values are more attractive to her
    than the old down home Americanism she used to spout.

    Well, good bye Sarah. It was good to know you, but now we hardly do anymore.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Follow the money.

  • M2000

    So this is what the Tea Party has become? Forget Donald Trump or Sarah’s endorsement of him….this decisive division will destroy the Tea Party Movement….so there….

  • I’m disappointed in her as well. I will continue to give her a chance in the future, but this is very disappointing. Cruz is the guy, I have confidence in him and his ability to fight Jihad and crush ISIS . I have no such confidence in Trump. His stand on Garland was telling. He says a few good things here and there, but the man cannot be trusted to follow through or to understand the constitution as Ted Cruz does. I think you are right there could be some opportunism here with Palin. Time will tell.

  • teton99

    Palin just showed her true colors, anything for the spotlight.

  • S_O_T_A

    Well written. A few hours ago, Robert Reich, who served in Carter’s administration, endorsed Obama in 2008, and also recently endorsed Sanders, wrote this. He was trying to take down Cruz, but he’s just about written the best endorsement for Ted one could.

    Again, the following is written by an enemy of freedom:

    “5 reasons Ted Cruz is even more dangerous than Donald Trump.

    1. He’s more fanatical. Trump is a bully and bigot but doesn’t hew to any sharp ideological line. Cruz is a fierce ideologue: He denies the existence of man-made climate change, rejects same-sex marriage, wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service, believes the 2nd amendment guarantees everyone a right to guns, doesn’t believe in a constitutional divide between church and state, favors the death penalty, opposes international agreements, embraces a confrontational foreign policy, rejects immigration reform, demands the repeal of “every blessed word of Obamacare,” and takes a strict “originalist” view of the meaning of the Constitution.

    2. Cruz is a true believer. Trump has no firm principles except making money, getting attention, and gaining power. But Cruz really does detest the federal government, and has spent much of his life embracing radical right economic and political views. When Cruz said “we are facing what I consider to be the epic battle of our generation,” he wasn’t referring to jihadist terrorism but to Obamacare.

    3. He’s Smarter. Trump is no slouch but he hasn’t given any indication of a sharp mind. Cruz is razer-sharp: It’s not just his degrees from Princeton and Harvard Law, along with an impressive record at Harvard, or even his winning arguments before the Supreme Court. For his entire adult life he’s been a fierce debater with a intensely-logical debater’s mind.

    4. He’s more disciplined and strategic. Trump is all over the place, often winging it, saying whatever pops into his mind. Cruz hews to a clear script and a carefully crafted strategy. He plays the long game (as he’s shown in Iowa). Cruz’s legal career entailed a sustained use of the courts to achieve conservative ends, and he plots his moves carefully.

    5. Cruz is a loner who’s willing to destroy institutions. Trump has spent his career using the federal government and making friends with big shots. Not Cruz. Most of his Republican colleagues in the Senate detest him. And Cruz is eager to destroy: He has repeatedly crossed to the other side of the Capitol and led House Republicans toward fiscal cliffs. In the Fall of 2013, Cruz’s strident opposition to Obamacare – including a 21-hour talking marathon — led in a significant way to the shutdown of the federal government.

    Both men would be disasters for America, but Cruz would be the larger disaster.

    What do you think?”

  • stealth4

    Trump appears to be a RINO. Does the country need another Mitch McConnell? Hell No!

  • pbob67

    Trump may not be the pure conservative, but what I see in the line up, He is the only one who can and will start to restore what the liberals and progressives have torn down. Cruz is my second choice and maybe a bit more shoestring conservative, but he is not as mean as Trump. And at this point we need a mean winner in the coaches seat, to get the rest of the RINOs either on track or out of there. This will be dirty and some will complain about being mean, but our nation will not last unless we put a mean bully brawler in the mix.

  • hankgoodness

    Pamela, thank you for saying this, every word including “screeching” I couldn’t agree with more. Something isn’t right about this endorsement, or her. Still, it was a disappointment. Glad you pointed out the lobbyist job held by Iowa’s governor’s son. Yes, courageous of Cruz to stand by his beliefs on this ethanol issue (scam). He is the candidate, the man for the job. Trouble is ahead, lots of it, and we’ll need someone like him who will stand by his principles and the Constitution even at great personal expense, something Trump would never do, doesn’t even understand.

  • joe1429

    Pam , please come back. the trmpeteers need you!!. Trump may not be perfect but he is the Only candidate in primary history to stay number ONE in the polls for a solid 6 mos. I was a die hard mark levin and limbaugh listener, but stopped last week when they started going after trump, inconspicuosly. Trump is doing what EVERY other candidate does when it comes down to the wire, He wants to win and is fighting for it!! Go Trump!!!!

    • wildjew

      joe, Mr. Trump has no voting record or any record of public service to evaluate like several of the others. Making difficult decisions as a Governor or a Senator is tough. The only thing we can go by is his life history, his father, grandfather, etc., which is what I am in the process of doing. Beyond some of Mr. Trump’s past positions and some of his current positions (especially on Israel), something has been bothering me about Trump. I am trying to do my due diligence on Mr. Trump’s life, his business practices, etc. I would encourage everyone to do this.

  • Dave

    Forget about how conservative someone is. In today’s world it’s electability and how one comes across in the media. Trump can beat Clinton because he is tough, hard hitting and won’t stand for the Muslim hordes and illegals. Cruz may be smart and staunch Conservative but he won’t get elected. He is missing that something called charisma, and like it or not, that is the way of the world.

    Clinton has no charisma either but she has most of the media in her corner.

  • When I heard—whenever that was—that Sarah Palin had a “reality tv show”, I wondered whether she had gone nuts, though I didn’t stop listening to or reading her political statements over recent years. I saw her appearance at the endorsement rally in Iowa on January 19 in full. I didn’t hear anything that–upon sober reflection the next day–changed my mind about Ted Cruz, or my objections to Donald Trump, but it did change my mind about Sarah Palin.

    After more thinking and based upon some of her comments in the speech, I fear that she might be doing this as revenge to the GOP establishment. I don’t care for pseudo-psychoanalytic explanations (deconstructionism), but the larger point is that this election is not about her. The second thing I thought was that they would have a reality tv show based in the White House.
    ———–
    I must add that the irreplaceable Pamela Geller informed me of what I DID NOT know: That Palin QUIT the governorship.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Palin has actually done Cruz a favor. With her unique blend of two extreme elements of toxicity and admiration the voters leaving Trump for Cruz will outnumber those leaving Cruz to jump on the Palin bandwagon.

    Her shrill endorsement of Trump, getting carried away by her own enthusiasm, is driven more by her experience of having been back stabbed by the GOP establishment than it is by pure political motive.

  • JM

    Fortunately, Trump is going to win without your support. I was previously a Cruz supporter, but the red flags popping up just got to be too distracting.

    • wildjew

      No red flags popping up on Mr. Trump?

      • JM

        Most people supporting Trump are not looking for ideological purity, the elusive quality that Cruz has been trying to claim. Cruz is a politician. Palin got him elected to the Senate. He should stay there for now. Cruz was my first choice until I saw the video of him proposing a 500% increase in H1B visas. H1B is a soft genocidal war against American citizens, nothing less; perhaps lots more. I’m not going to detail that point here, but I cannot support any candidate who wants more H1B frauds displacing American citizens, not even one more. Goldman Sachs is one of the corporations with thousands of H1B visa workers. Cruz is beholden to GS. The list goes on, and gets worse. This is why we have primaries; to get a more detailed idea what the candidates are going to represent if they were to get elected. Cruz has no intention of representing American citizens. He has already demonstrated that, and so has Rubio, Jindal, Perry, Walker, Kasich, Fiorrini, Paul, Bush, and everyone else, except Trump. Trump may disappoint, but he has not yet blatantly stated, “I will sell you out, and stab you in the back,” as Cruz might as well have articulated. Treason is unforgivable.

        • wildjew

          I am not committed to any of the candidates. There are several I have ruled out; Bush, Rubio, Christie, Kasich, etc. Senator Cruz is in no way perfect. But on national security the strongest look to be Cruz and Trump.

          In principle (my industry is agriculture) I ‘can’ support some kind of a guest workers program as people in my industry will tell you it is difficult to find American citizens willing to do this work, especially in the fields and the hot houses, etc. That’s just the way it is, sadly. I don’t know how H1B visa workers compare with documented guest workers. I’ve not studied the issue. In no way do I support amnesty for illegals.

          My top issues are national security / foreign policy. I strongly support the temporary freeze (it should be permanent) on Muslim immigration, “IF” Mr. Trump is sincere. This is what I don’t know about Mr. Trump. Is he sincere or is he a ‘showman’ who tells the masses what we want to hear? He has not exactly been consistent on the threat from sharia, jihad, etc., when it comes to supporting free speech, when it comes to Israel, when it comes to negotiating a better deal than Obama negotiated with this murderous, criminal, apocalyptic regime in Iran. Don’t these things trouble you?

          • JM

            H1B visas are primarily for scientific, engineering, technology, systems, and business types of occupations (STEM). Most of these jobs require a minimum BS degree, some MS, some PHD. Half of the Americans with these degrees cannot get hired in their fields, and many within the fields are being displaced by foreigners. This is a national security disaster, and economic disaster, and treason on a grand scale. Your agricultural visa workers are not going to sell your technology or industrial secrets to the Chinese or Indian governments. I strongly support a PERMANENT ban on muslim immigration or visitation to the USA. No candidate can say anything like that until after we have lost millions of people to terrorist attacks, and that is coming. Trump promises daily to “make America great again”. That’s as close as any candidate can come to saying exactly what you question in your final paragraph. Cruz indicates the exact opposite. His donors will hold him to the status quo, which will lead to America’s destruction.

          • wildjew

            I have to stay focused on what is critical. Remember it was Mexicans Mr. Trump first began talking about, not Muslims. I fully support securing the southern border. I do NOT support amnesty for illegals. Trump vehemently condemned Pamela’s free speech event in Garland, Texas. Only after the Paris and the San Bernardino massacres did Mr. Trump really turn his attention to Muslims. I remember as a precinct committeeman here in our local Republican party, right after 19 Muslims murdered approximately 3,000 innocent Americans, our State Committeewoman stood up at our monthly meeting and said we need to secure our southern border as though it was 19 Mexican terrorists who hijacked those planes.

    I hope Beitbart continues to use Pamela Geller’s material. I was blocked either last night or this morning from posting on Breitbart. That’s OK. I have been asking hard questions about Donald Trump and the regulars posting there do not like it. I point to Trump’s troubling statements on Israel and readers point out Trump daughter is a Jewish convert. One reader assumed my Disqus name, picture, etc., and began posting anti-Semitic and disgusting comments (in my name) over the past couple of days. I would not have any idea how to do that, nor would I do it. I have an inkling there are one or two paid workers for Donald Trump reading and posting on the site. Readers there tell me Breitbart is owned by a Ted Cruz supporter but you would not know it given the editorial content.

            They want it in Jerusalem,” the front-runner

            Tuesday by The Brody File, a Christian Broadcasting Network show. “Well I
            am for that 100 percent. We are for that 100 percent.”

            Trump’s agreement seemed to be an about-face from remarks in December at
            the Republican Jewish Coalition, when the real estate magnate refused
            to commit to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital.

          • wildjew

            Jerusalem is only one issue among several issues that concern me about Trump and the global jihad. You might have noticed Trump rightly criticized Obama for negotiating a terrible deal with the murderous regime in Iran. Trump said the Persians are great negotiators. But Trump will honor Obama’s terrible deal with this criminal regime because he is used to working with bad contracts. Trump intimated he would have negotiated a better deal with this gangster regime. Furthermore, Trump expresses a desire to negotiate a deal with these “Palestinian” Islamic savages who are knifing innocent Israeli Jews in Hebron, Jerusalem, etc. But Trump isn’t sure if Israel is willing to make the sacrifices it will take to make a deal with these murderous savages whom he is eager to negotiate with.

            Has it occurred to you Mr. Trump is historically illiterate? Read Churchill. Winston Churchill had enough sense to know you do NOT negotiate with murderous, criminal, gangster regimes and peoples. Churchill spent a decade warning against the kind of folly Trump supports.

        ‘You last night calling women Trumps daughter a whore and using scripture now this….’

            Breitbart blocked me. I am not Disqus savvy. Once I tried to change my profile picture, unsuccessfully. Even if I changed my profile name, etc., I am still blocked, right? But this begs the question. Why should I have to change anything “a bit?” And what gives a Breitbart reader the right to assume my name and my picture and then post lies on the website as if it were me?

            My late father (our Republican party Chairman / State Committeeman) once told me a candidate cannot choose his or her supporters after I complained about several white supremacists and racists who were supporting a local candidate. Maybe there is some truth to that but it turned out the candidate was / is a fellow racist. Consequently, I do not discount the kind of support a candidate garners. I have read and interacted with loyal Trump supporters over at Breitbart for many months. There are a few reasonable supporters. Many do NOT tolerate any criticism of Mr. Trump. They react with fury in behalf of their man. This is not healthy. It’s worrisome.

            He brags about how he can negotiate deals with Establishment folks in Congress; that Ted Cruz couldn’t do it because Trump says no one likes Senator Cruz.

            So the Establishment likes Trump and they don’t like Cruz. What does that tell you about Mr. Trump and your support for him?

      Mr. Trump when asked about Jerusalem would not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital.

      “In an interview with the Associated Press, published mere hours before he[‘s expected to take the stage at the Republican Jewish Coalition, Trump said that if elected president he will give it six months to determine whether Israel or the Palestinians are ready to advance towards a final settlement.

      “I have a real question as to whether or not both sides want to make it,” Trump told AP. “If I win, I’ll let you know six months from the time I take office.”

      But he emphasized that it all rests with Israel. “A lot will have to do with Israel and whether or not Israel wants to make the deal — whether or not Israel’s willing to sacrifice certain things,” Trump said. “They may not be, and I understand that, and I’m OK with that. But then you’re just not going to have a deal.”

          I saw that yesterday. Fine. Surely you know, virtually every presidential candidate (since Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 ) vows they will move our U.S. ambassador to Jerusalem but then they repeatedly exercise the waiver within the act. I think it is possible Cruz, given his record of support for Israel, will make good on his pledge. I question whether Trump will given his recent statements on Israel. Mr. Trump said he was going to travel to Israel last month. Why didn’t he make good on his travel plans?

            You saw it yesterday and still coming up with older not longer correct info !

            That stinks !

            About his travel plan to Israel

            ASK BB !
            Plenty to find in the Jewish press .

            come on bro .

            Be careful, you losing credibility by ever comment of you .

          • wildjew

            I doubt Israel’s prime minister told Mr. Trump not to visit Israel. Do you have any evidence he did?

          • Aaron

            That’s pretty easy to research.??? Why haven’t you? Israel is facing an intifada and the Islamic forces use any excuse to rile up the Moslems there. Trump had just talked about banning Moslem migration into the US pending further investigation, which has been twisted by the media and politicians into labeling Trump a bigot. Bibi asked Trump to hold off so as not to add to the problems at this particular time.

          • wildjew

            You wrote, Why haven’t (I) researched it? I read Israeli websites daily. Maybe I missed it. You say, “Bibi asked Trump to hold off so as not to add to the problems at this particular time.” Since you have researched it, can you provide a link? I am not suggesting you are wrong. If Trump were to visit Israel he would have plenty of security.

          • Aaron

            I agree that wild”jew” has lost credibility. The comments are typical and misleading talking points coming from the Cruz campaign.

            At the RJC meeting, for example, Trump said whatever Israel does is up to them, not the US. Hardly an indictment against Trump.

            Pamela is embarrassing herself by diving into the election fray. It’s the wrong fight for her. She was supportive of Rubio earlier with quite a bit of the same zeal. Her colleague Robert Spencer also has posted on his website that he would “never forgive Donald Trump even if he came begging on hands and knees.” I’m not sure that is a Christian teaching or value, and Spencer claims that faith–but it indicates quite a bit of grudge-holding between the two of them.

            Pamela’s forte is in scouring the Internet for news stories written by investigative journalists and reporters from across the world, from various news organizations and research agencies, and posting them in ONE place. It’s a valuable public service, as is her human rights activism and ad campaigns.

            But in politics, people are usually less rational. Everyone wants badly to believe their candidate will deliver. Things become so emotional.

            Cruz and Trump are the front runners at this time. Cruz needs to own up to his co-sponsorship of the Corker bill which gave Iran everything. Alan Dershowitz said Cruz was a brilliant law student, so absolutely knows what the Corker bill was going to do–and from an attorney’s perspective, it wouldn’t be hard to miss the Constitutional conflict there. He hasn’t yet named the Moslem Brotherhood as a sponsor of terror–which he would be willing to ban along with ISIS and alQueda, he has some issues with amnesty, and so forth.

            Cruz and Trump are the front runners at this time. They both bring things to the table that would be a major improvement compared with a Democrat presidency, which means another Nazi-like presidency, as billionaire George Soros is funding the campaigns of Clinton and Sanders.

          • The real and only Toedeladoki

            Please no emotions in this election, just plain pragmatism !

            The stakes are to high !

            And i can agree with you a lot .

            And let me put it in this way.

            People do not like to lose on older investments !, financial or political !

    • wildjew

      Trump is not a hard core pro Israel guy.

      • The real and only Toedeladoki

        When it comes to Jewish ties, no GOP candidate trumps Trump

        On Israel, he said, ‘We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100 percent, 1,000 percent. It will be there forever’

        I have many Jewish friends that support Obama and I say, Why? and they
        can’t explain why. They support him, they give him money, they give him
        campaign contributions,’ Trump told radio host Michael Savage in
        February. ‘This is the worst enemy of Israel’

        http://www.timesofisrael.com/when-it-comes-to-jewish-ties-no-gop-candidate-trumps-trump/

        • wildjew

          You wrote: On Israel, he said, ‘We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100 percent, 1,000 percent. It will be there forever’….

          Maybe. We shall see. My first thought is, talk is cheap. Barack Obama says nice things about Israel while he is twisting the knife in her back. I voted for G. W. Bush in 2000. He too said nice things even as he and more so Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice exerted much immoral pressure on Israel in the midst of some very bloody terrorism, suicide bombings, etc.

          • Aaron

            True. But I don’t think either Trump or Cruz will do that.

            The key issue is, if America falls economically, most Americans won’t give a rat’s ass about Israel–and our enemies will feature Jews/Israel as the problem and cause of the economic plight. Soros is behind the BDS, the migrant “crisis” here and in Europe, the promotion of Islsm, and the manipulation of financial markets.

            Because Cruz failed to stand for the protection of the Constitutional power of the Senate and the safety of America, Israel, and the free world, and instead do-sponsored the Corker bill (Iran deal), this is a very great concern. We have heard nothing from Cruz on this except how BAD McConnel is, which we already knew.

            These kinds of things are why I don’t become “excited” about this one or that one… Time will tell.

            When Obama successfully transported the COUNTING OF THE VOTES to his campaign funded in Spain, also connected to Soros–it seems like a done deal. Votes must be counted in the US and the entire process monitored closely. Cruz should be looking into that facet IMO.

          • wildjew

            Unlike Pamela I am not heavily invested in Ted Cruz. I can understand why she is, in part because unlike Trump, Cruz stood solidly behind her free speech event in Garland, Texas. Trump slipped badly on that one. Couldn’t he see he was supporting sharia blasphemy (or anti-blasphemy) law.

            My problem with Sen. Cruz (a dedicated Constitutionalist). he will invoke Constitutional religious protections afforded us when he should be using his head as he’s done a couple or so times in behalf of Muslims. Voting for the Corker bill was a huge mistake, I agree. I wonder if Cruz listened to or read his friend Mark Levin who daily inveighed against letting Obama escape honoring the Constitutional treaty provision. When Trump called for a temporary freeze on Muslim immigration, Cruz should have joined him just as Trump joined Ted Cruz at his anti-Iran rally.

            From a purely self-interested perspective, if Trump becomes the Republican nominee and is elected president; if Trump brings back the economy, the real estate market which are both languishing (I want to sell my property) from a purely selfish standpoint, I will benefit.

            I have to decide who to vote for in our primary. If, as I am coming to learn, Mr. Trump is morally and ethically comprised as a way of doing business, as a way of life, etc., I will be forced to vote for Senator Cruz in our Republican primary in spite of his deficiencies. Or I might not vote in the president’s race.

  • I think this article is a really logical assessment of Palin. My support for Palin was shaken when she surprisingly quit her job as Gov. of Alaska, as well. Palin has been a weird anomaly that has attached itself to the Tea Party, yet, all of her actions have been self serving and cliche. I found her son’s rant about why his mother was offended by Cruz to be nonsensical, at best. This endorsement of Trump is all about Sarah, I believe.

    • The real and only Toedeladoki

      Who cares if it helps Trump becoming president !

      The priority is getting the establishment out of the white house !

      • I don`t support Trump. Trump has been a liberal for two decades. I don`t mind if you support him, and I won`t throw mud like most people do on this topic. I don`t like Trump, and I certainly don`t trust him. This Palin endorsement fits right in with everything else about Trump.

      • Trump is the establishment in sheep cloths.

        • The real and only Toedeladoki

    I know Pamela is a Cruz person from get go and I also like him, but he’s not winnable for president. I know you don’t like Trump for what he said about you regarding the cartoons, but you must ask yourself what’s better for the country; a Republican or Democrat? Trump is a new kind of non politician and is not beholden to anyone. He must become president, he’s our only salvation. No Republican even if electable will do what Trump will do.

    • The real and only Toedeladoki

    • wildjew

      I believe Pamela said in answer to a question from a reader earlier, it is Trump vs. Clinton, of course she will vote for Trump. But I am looking at my Republican primary. My position has been, “barring anything unforeseen” if Trump is the nominee, I will vote for Trump. But I am studying Trump’s life and his business practices.

      • The real and only Toedeladoki

        You have first to get Trump trough the primary !

        Voting for Cruz will not do that, and Cruz killary will be a loss , killary will win .

            There are things that trouble me about Senator Cruz. I’ve got to weight Cruz, his history and his record against Trump, his history and his business and political record.

          • The real and only Toedeladoki

            Check his voting record , and bank relations !

          • wildjew

            There is something you are missing. These are two very different men. Donald Trump and his father Fred Trump (German grandfather Freidrick Drumpf) spent their lives making fortunes largely through buying political favors. In other words Donald Trump (he admits it) bought politicians for business purposes. Trump believes it is OK to use his corrupt political connections to seize private property (homesteads) not for government use but for private use; for economic development.

            Cruz on the other hand is not a super wealthy man. Cruz has a voting record, unlike Trump. Voting on difficult issues is tough. Cruz has had to work his way up to where he is. Between Cruz and Trump, Ted Cruz is more the self-made man. Trump was born into wealth. I am not saying there is anything inherently wrong with that. Cruz had to borrow money for his campaign. Cruz does not have the luxury of self-funding.

          • cenlacatholic

            Well, America is the first nation in recorded human history to be founded without dedication to a god or gods, much less the true God. The founders were liberals. The liberalism of today is merely the natural progression of their liberalism.

          • Aaron

            The founders were in no way liberals.

          • cenlacatholic

            They certainly were. It’s called classical liberalism.

          • Aaron

            You are absolutely wrong. They were very focused on the “true God,” if I understand your definition, but they were unique in their approach and not Catholic. The original documents, as a whole, tell their story. But what we have now as deemed “liberal” or “progressive” is a theft of the words and meanings by those who are in actuality totalitarian in nature and approach.

          • cenlacatholic

            Aaron, look up classical liberalism. They were the embodiment of classical liberalism which was then exported into France causing the revolution of 1789.

            Most of the founders were Deists (most of the elite were), who believe that God exists but leaves man to his own tools, like an absentee god. The rest were protestants, some Unitarian like Jefferson who edited his own Bible to remove references to the Holy Trinity and the Divinity of Jesus. (Yet, he called himself a “true Christian”, ironically)

          • Aaron

            The false “Deist” meme has been floated by the enemies of American Liberty and has come to be believed, though not supportable by legitimate academic research. My colleagues are complaining that I’m spending too much time here (and I’m sure they’re right…) so I’ll have to pick this up later. One more thing: the Jefferson bible issue had to do with TJ cutting out verses to assemble into a teaching tract.

          • The real and only Toedeladoki

            Please be so kind to explain your idea of liberalism !

          • cenlacatholic

            My definition? Look up classical liberalism. It isn’t my definition.

          • The real and only Toedeladoki

            better, you look it up.

          • cenlacatholic

            I’ll start from the beginning, then.

            Liberalism began in theology, the protestants. It was rebellion against just authority and by extension, a rebellion from God.

            1) It is the absolute sovereignty of the individual in his entire independence of God and God’s authority.

            2) The absolute sovereignty of society in its entire independence of everything which does not proceed from itself.

            3) Absolute civil sovereignty in the implied right of the people to make their own laws in entire independence and utter disregard of any other criterion than the popular will expressed at the polls and in parliamentary majorities.

            4) Absolute freedom of thought in politics, morals, or in religion. The unrestrained liberty of the press. Such are the radical principles of Liberalism. In the assumption of the absolute sovereignty of the individual, that is, his entire independence of God, we find the common source of all the others. To express them all in one term in the order of ideas, they are rationalism or the doctrine of the absolute sovereignty of human reason. Here human reason is made the measure and sum of truth. Hence we have individual, social and political Rationalism, the corrupt fountain head of liberal principles: absolute freedom of worship, the supremacy of the State, secular education repudiating any connection with religion, marriage sanctioned and legitimatized by the State alone, etc.; in one word, which synthesizes all, secularization, which denies religion any active intervention in the concerns of public and of private life whether it orate or assassinate; whether it call itself Liberty or Government or the State or Humanity or Reason, or what not, its fundamental characteristic is an uncompromising opposition to the Church.

            Liberalism, founded in the principles of private interpretation in theology disrupted Europe and began the destruction of Christendom. Rebellion and revolt ensued.

            These same liberal principles were applied in philosophy, which resulted in the revival of pagan thought in humanism: the Renaissance.

            These two revolutions in thought and theology led to the application of private interpretation and anti-clericalism of the so-called Enlightenment. In the Endarkenment we saw the overthrow of altar and throne, and the final nail in the coffin of Christian Europe. This is our founder’s intellectual patrimony: classical liberalism.

            What came next was the bloody French Revolution, murder of consecrated religious, laity, and the “declaration of the rights of man” where “enlightened” men crowned a prostitute the “goddess of reason” and enthroned her on the altar in the Paris cathedral to be venerated.
            Ah, enlightenment indeed.

            Not for me even though I am not religious. My faith (for what it is worth) is not a private matter. That’s the problem I have with Mr. Trump’s daughter who said her faith is very personal or private. A good Jew lives by his or her faith like Pamela.

            Uhmm.. I have not ever, in my lifetime, seen a Jew use (and I would say misuse) the Tenach as you are here. wild”jew.”

            Your argument fails in any case, as you see Cruz as a better candidate for what you feel is his wisdom, abilities, warrior-like stance, etc., but what you are citing teaches the overtaking element of time and chance, which no man can master.

          • wildjew

            I don’t see Sen. Cruz as a better candidate for what I feel is his wisdom, abilities, warrior-like stance, etc. Donald Trump is the better “candidate” between the two men.

            The Trump supporter wrote above, “the one who pays, plays.”

            According to Wikipedia: “In politics, pay to play refers to a system, akin to payola in the music industry, by which one pays (or must pay) money to become a player.

            Typically, the payer (an individual, business, or organization) makes campaign contributions to public officials, party officials, or parties themselves, and receives political or pecuniary benefit such as no-bid government contracts, influence over legislation, political appointments or nominations, special access or other favors. The contributions, less frequently, may be to nonprofit or institutional entities, or may take the form of some benefit to a third party, such as a family member of a governmental official…..”

            This is a form of corruption I do not support. Do you? When I give or have given a political contribution in the past mostly to local candidates, I told them I did not expect anything in return. Only I expected they would keep their conservative campaign promises.

            I don’t know if you’ve read or studied the book of Eccleasiastes. It is believed to have been written late in life by King Solomon. I see some cynicism and irony in the book like the following related passage:

            “Men prepare a meal for enjoyment, and wine makes life merry, and money is the answer to everything.”

          • Dorrie

            Cruz has changed his mind about a couple of things, but his best trait is that he has worked VERY hard for Americans while others have fought against him, then whine that he doesn’t play well. I’m GRATEFUL he doesn’t give in to them! That’s the kind of strength we need!

    http://trumpthemovie.com/watch/

    I listen to audio books (Audible.com), I am listening to: “Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success,” by Michael D’Antonio

    No candidate is perfect. It seems to me there’s got to be some decency there. A man has to have some moral and ethical principles guiding him.

      Have you also listened to Trump’s books. Just curious.

      The one most dangerous enemy of the US at this is Nazi George Soros. He must be defeated by any means. That won’t be the end of it, but he’s a kingpin.

      Anyone who can significantly diminish his power and influence is key.

      • wildjew

        “The one most dangerous enemy of the US at this is Nazi George Soros. He must be defeated by any means. That won’t be the end of it, but he’s a kingpin….”

        Agreed. He is VERY dangerous. He is for flooding this country with hostile Muslims. I just read yesterday Soros is warning Europe (the EU) is in serous trouble due to this influx of “refugee” which little doubt he helped facilitate.

        As to your question about Trump’s books. I see several of them at Audible. I would like to listen to The Art of the Deal but I might have to buy the Kindle edition. I don’t think Audible has it. I can only do so many things at once between listening to talk radio, mostly Limbaugh and Levin. I would prefer to listen to biographers on Trump before I listen to Trump himself. Keep in mind, Trump is a consummate salesman and self-promoter, not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself so long as he has redeeming qualities. I listen to and read Trump every day on the Internet, radio, video, television. I’ve got his Twitter link bookmarked at the top of the page. When I am studying a controversial public figure, I try to avoid hagiographies if I can help it. I like reading critical historians and biographers. How about you.

          You want to know what I read? Too funny…

          You probably should be more interested in what I do and what I write. But I’m not going to let you in on that either. Sorry.

          What Americans have largely lost sight of (and that was by elitist design) is the true platform of REPRESENTATION. The Republic is a citizen government, but people have lost their understanding of that as a bedrock principle, so they put too much stock in leaders. As originally intended, leaders were servants of the public, accomplishing the will of the PEOPLE.
          ——
          The official position from Netanyahu is that he would, as a matter of policy, meet with Trump if he came to Israel. There is always public policy and private communiques–but I imagine you know that since you apparently read a lot. I believe, if you look hard enough, you can find audio from Trump talking about not wanting to make things more difficult for Bibi by visiting at this time.

            “What Americans have largely lost sight of (and that was by elitist design) is the true platform of REPRESENTATION.

            A representative government is better than a pure democracy in my opinion but I disagree that a representative’s job is to always accomplish the “will of the people.” There are times when “the people” are wrong as they were by and large in Britain and the U.S. in the nineteen thirties. Then it is the responsibility of a great leader to educate the public and to try and bring them along. FDR pretty much did what you suggest is a leader’s responsibility, as he accomplished the will of the people (FDR knew the mood of the people; he read many newspapers daily) to the great frustration of Churchill who worked to shape public opinion. Churchill sought to sound the alarm; to warn the public of the threat posed by Germany.

            This is what makes a great leader.

          • cenlacatholic

            From a philosophical standpoint, I disagree wholeheartedly with government by “will of the people.” Assuming you are a religious Jew, you would agree that the greatest authority is God. The representative government which is driven by ‘we the people’ is the reversal of the divine order, making collective man the almighty authority.

            Like Plato, I agree that a philosopher king is the most ideal government, informed by religion (again, as Plato wrote, the highest form of philosophy) and morality. I do not expect such a thing to work in today’s day with the absolute moral degradation in society. Just a highbrow, armchair philosophical observation.

          • wildjew

            I am not a religious (Orthodox) Jew yet I understand devout Muslims are correct when they say authority comes from God, not from the people.

            Only the god they are referring to is Allah, a merciless, pitiless monster. You read the Qur’an next to the Bible (I am talking about my Bible, the Hebrew Bible), this thing Muslims worship (the creature Muhammad taught) is deplorable.

          • cenlacatholic

            You’re right. Those who say try to say that Jews and Muslims (and Christians for that matter) worship the same God are completely off base.

          • Dorrie

            Correct. Allah is not God. Allah is a Pagan moon god that Mohammed dreamed up and chose out of his 300 other Pagan gods.

          • Aaron

            So Cruz is your Churchill, I’m taking it? But he’s not talking about his co-sponsorship of the Corker bill, which gave Obama the ability to give Iran everything.

            Cruz would be a better president than Obama, but I’ve never thought he can rally the voting public.

          • Dorrie

            And it’s your “thinking” that is spreading to others. Try being positive! Cruz is the ONLY man who can turn this mess around! HELP! Stop HINDERING!

          • Aaron

            Dorrie: Cruz’ co-sponsorship of the Corker bill (Obama’s Iran deal springboard) is a very critical issue. He has never talked about it.

          • Dorrie

            Look again, Aaron. You couldn’t be more wrong.

        • Dorrie

          I read The Art of the Deal. Trump is all about making deals. And yes, he’d deal with the Iranians – when we shouldn’t have ANYTHING to do with them! He is a Progressive liberal – through and through. Anyone believing he is suddenly “conservative” has not looked at his history! He’s a TROJAN HORSE and if he’s nominated, America will collapse without a doubt! We MUST elect a man with “CHARACTER” and Trump’s character is non-existent.

          • wildjew

            Trump’s history is progressive-liberal. He looks to be an unscrupulous businessman; a “confidence man.” I continue to study him. I strongly doubt I will vote for Mr. Trump in our Republican primary. What will you do next November in event Mr. Trump is the Republican nominee?

          • Dorrie

            I will write-in Ted Cruz if that happens. The last election, I voted for Romney, against my conscience. But my life is about pleasing God and I CANNOT vote against my conscience again. Voting for the “lesser of 2 evils” is still voting for evil and that would be Trump.

          • wildjew

            I hear you. I too very reluctantly voted for Romney in the general election. I can agree with you, voting for the lesser of the 2 evils is evil except when the greater evil is Barack Hussein Obama. If I were living in Germany in the early nineteen thirties I sure would have voted for the lesser of the 2 evils between Nazism and the Social Democrats, because it could mean the difference between life and death. I never thought I would say so here in the U.S. but that was before the rise of Barack Obama, this nightmare. I am guessing you think Trump is just as if not more evil than Obama?

          • Dorrie

            At this point, wj, I choose to trust God. PERIOD. He is in control. He puts kings on thrones and removes them at His pleasure. I will vote my conscience and will NOT vote for Trump under any circumstances.

          • wildjew

            I admire you for your faith. I too trust God. I’m not saying I haven’t gotten it wrong but I am giving much thought and prayer to this upcoming vote. Maybe you read my post earlier, I was banned last night from posting on Breitbart where Trump-supporters are legion; in part because I caused so much controversy I suppose. So be it.

          • Dorrie

            I’ve had to block Trump supporters on Twitter – at least 100 in the past week – because they’re so incredibly nasty (just like liberals) and refuse to hear the truth about him. One called me a “whore” because I support Ted Cruz.

            My faith grows stronger when I’m attacked. And I start each day, as soon as I wake, talking to Abba Father. I live my entire life for Him in all I do.

          • wildjew

            Many Trump supporters over at Breitbart remind me of former Ron Paul supporters who were ever-present and viciously attacked anyone who faulted their candidate. My guess is, many Ron Paul supporters moved over to the Trump camp. When Breitbart announced they were opening up a Jerusalem bureau, Trump supporters came out of the ‘woodwork’ attacking the editors.

          • Dorrie

            That wouldn’t surprise me. Trump has the applause of the Establishment now, in spite of Palin’s shrill speech about the opposite. Cruz is disliked by the Establishment because he refuses to “go along to get along.” He stands almost alone in his tireless support of We The People and has done everything he was sent to DC to do.

            Trump knows little to nothing about the Constitution or the Bible (which he has waved a couple of times in his speeches). He’s a showman, nothing more.

          • wildjew

            I cannot be as pessimistic as you; that should Trump become president America will collapse. Economically, America could prosper at least in the first several years of his administration, as Trump (unlike Obama) is not anti-business. Trump could do some very bad things. It is possible some of the things Trump says he will do is largely talk (such as security the border and putting a moratorium on Muslim immigration) we shall see.

          • Dorrie

            I’m not pessimistic, I’m REALISTIC!

          • wildjew

            I like to say that about myself. I am a realist; not optimistic or pessimistic. Lots of people say our elections are too lengthy. I disagree. Lengthy elections give me sufficient time to study this front-runner, his life and his history. There are many things we are going to hear from and learn about Mr. Trump in the coming months. I might come to the same conclusion as you have next November in the event Trump is the Republican nominee.

      • Dorrie

        Aaron, I’ve read them. He brags openly about buying politicians, that’s just about all I need to know about his lack of character.

    • Dorrie

      Trump HAS no moral or ethical principles!

  • wildjew

    Mark Levin: “Amnesty?”

    Donald J. Trump–Verified account ‏@realDonaldTrump

    Congress must protect our borders first. Amnesty should be done only if the border is secure and illegal immigration has stopped.

  • brilliantbutflawed

    That column contains a lot of pent-up hostility against Palin, and Trump.

    Cruz is my senator who I supported. But in a national election I see Trump as being much more electable. Conservatives have been lied to before and there is no guarantee that Trump isn’t yanking our chain now. But it is imperative that we wreck the donor class and release its grip on elections. Trump seems to have that ability and is on that trajectory.

    Before rebuilding the country we must stop those who are preventing it from being rebuilt.

  • Patriot Girl

    I was really sickened when trump pounced on Pamela after garland with his stupid democrat like speeches ” let’s not rile up the Muslims” blaming the victim Pamela for free speech! Yes I was horribly disappointed.. But, I know he’s not conservative but he is STRONG! He detests the illegals here as much as any of us.. I just think despite the things I do t like about him I like more of his qualities than the few I disagree with and I just don’t think Cruz can pull a win off.. Too many people don’t like him.. He’s not likeable unfortunately..that’s been my feeling about him from the start! I admire his work in senate but.. He’s not very likeable.. To me.. But trump is a patriot despite his liberal leanings and I believe he will put America back to work stop Muslim immigration build the wall etc. I believe him.. He’s got Americas best interest at heart unlike the dispecable mullah-King in charge now.. I’m very worried the Supreme Court us going to flip on the amnesty issue giving the mullah all the toys he’s asked for! And that would be a disaster for America! But should the Supreme Court vote yes I do think there are remedies via congress that trump can set in motion to stop the implementation of Daca etc. Those are the issues for me! National safety, stopping Muslim immigration forever, stopping entitlements to illegals and refugees, building our military up, supporting our police Dept. And deporting all illegals.. That’s quite a list but I do feel trump has the energy and will to do this! Pal in is a hick and I could care less who she endorses..I’m jus sorry he was such a bastard to Pamela who is my hero in an hundred different ways!

  • kayerob

    Pam, as a Jewish women you might want to take a look at this video The title Cruz father Ted Cruz will bring the spoils of war. You see he is supposed to bring back the spoils of war to the priest. This begins the transfer on wealth form the wicked to the righteous gentiles. So righteous gentiles will have all the wealth and this will begin the end times. What theology is this?

    • cenlacatholic

      Protestantism. That’s what it is.

      • kayerob

        No it is a jihad type brand of theology where Christians are supposed to take over everything and control the wealth of the country. Dominionist

        • Dorrie

          Haven’t read the Bible, have you? If you have, you certainly haven’t actually studied it. UGH … there’s NO accounting for your kind of morose ignorance!

          • kayerob

            I know the Bible. No where in the Bible does it say Jesus died to make you wealthy and that somehow God anoints us to take wealth from the wicked and keep it for ourselves. There is no seven mountains mandate in the Bible. I AM a Southern Baptist. This church is not. The Leader Larry Huch says Jesus was not the only begotten son for heavens sake. He says Jesus was just the first fruit of many.

          • Dorrie

            True. I agree with that much…

        • cenlacatholic

          … which came out of the principle of private interpretation in Protestantism. It’s yet another brand of “prosperity gospel.”

          • kayerob

            Correct but a militant prosperity gospel where prosperity is achieved when the kings ( ted) brings back the spoils of war to the priest. Then starts the great transfer of wealth to the gentiles who are righteous. Some people will get their things taken and the gentiles will receive it. They start saying this will bring about the end time on the video. That is scary.

          • cenlacatholic

            This is why Protestants supported and continue to support Israel and fund the rebuilding of the Temple–because they believe they can bring about the antichrist and the Second Coming faster. It is truly crazy.

          • kayerob

      ‘Trump the Cultural Figure’

      by JIM GERAGHTY January 21, 2016 10:08 AM

      Cruz and Rubio are running as mere politicians; Trump’s running as a phenomenon.

      excerpts: “…..The Obama-mania went well beyond the usual media bias or partisanship; it was an unprecedented national cult of personality. A July 2008 column by Mark Morford in the San Francisco Chronicle suggested, with no detectable sarcasm, Obama was a “Lightworker,” described as “that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health-care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet.” Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. said that “what Barack Obama has accomplished is the single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nation’s political history. . . . The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance.” Celebrities even taped videos pledging allegiance to him.

      It felt like mass hysteria; those of us who doubted the junior senator’s ability to bring about Nirvana felt like strangers in our own country. It felt a bit like “gaslighting,” a constant barrage of misinformation to make us feel like we were losing our sanity. Almost as one, America’s elites insisted our national salvation would be found in this . . . celebrity…..

          Education.

          Trump: “I’m not cutting services, but I am cutting spending.”

          Reallÿ? Then where are the cuts going to come from?

          “But I may cut Department of Education…”

          He MAY cut this largely needless, costly and burdensome Dept. of Education? MAY?

          “[As president I’d] end Common Core.”

          Great. Isn’t Common Core rooted in and funded from the Dept. of Education which he “MAY” cut?

          “Back in 2005, he started an online school called Trump University to teach the art of deal-making….”

          Mr. Trump is so fascinated with deal-making maybe that is why he is eager to make good deals with Islamic savages in Iran and in Israel.

          Trump: “I was listening to some Europeans once and they seemed to agree that Americans didn’t seem to know their roots. Of course, their roots go back for many more centuries than ours and may be easier to decipher because many of us have ancestors from different countries. But it gave me a reason to think about what they said, and I realized in many cases they were right. I recently went to Scotland, as my mother’s side of the family is of Scottish ancestry, and I’ve spent time studying that country & therefore my heritage. It could even explain why I love golf so much–it originated in Scotland…..”

          Instead of studying his ancestral roots, Donald Trump would have done well studying Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and other great leaders.

      • Dorrie

        Ted Cruz is the ONLY true statesman in the race! He has done everything he said he would do when he was sent to D.C. He has fought VERY hard for We The People, but idiots like you have had your ears tickled by Trump.

            Not a bad answer. I personally think we have terrible choices. Be it Trump or Cruz. Although when do we ever have a good choice.

          • Dorrie

            I believe Ted Cruz is an EXCELLENT choice! He knows the Constitution – and memorized it at the age of 13. He works hard for We The People and I trust him.

          • Dorrie

            I do as well, that’s why I support Ted Cruz. He stands on Godly principals and the Constitution. Just what America needs.

          • cenlacatholic

            I have listened to his father on youtube. I am very wary of that sort of thing; Protestantism is very revolutionary and whimsical.
            I do not agree with the theology of his father (and apparently of his), but his principles seem to be, from what I know, basic Christian morality.

          • Dorrie

            I won’t have a religious argument with you, dear one, because you’d lose. What I know is that Ted Cruz loves God and country and will have my vote. Trump cheated on 2 wives, then dumped them, looking for a trophy wife, which he now has. He is corrupt to the core.

          • cenlacatholic

            Yes I know. Divorce and remarriage is adultery.

            I say Protestantism is revolutionary because, well, it was founded in revolution. Scripture tells us that rebellion is likened to the sin of witchcraft (1 Kings (1 Samuel) 15:23)
            “Because it is like the sin of witchcraft, to rebel: and like the crime of idolatry, to refuse to obey.”

            Fr. Luther allowed the polygamous “marriage” of Philip of Hesse, separated Holy Matrimony from the Church and relegated it to the State (precursor of today’s sodomite civil marriages), and Henry VIII split over the issue of divorce. Right out of the gates, Protestantism as a system attacked the institution of marriage.

            I’m no revolutionary.

          • wildjew

            The United States was founded by revolutionaries.

          • cenlacatholic

            So is cheating on one’s wife! Trump did it to his first 2 wives.

            Yes it is.

          • wildjew

            I will take “Godly principles” over the Constitution when there is a contradiction or a conflict between the two.

          • Dorrie

            I don’t believe there is, because Godly men framed the Constitution, using Biblical principals.

          • cenlacatholic

            Ma’am, we were the first nation in recorded human history to be founded as a purely secular government.

          • wildjew

            They were Godly men but there is a difference between Godly men and prophets of God like Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, etc. John Adams in his writings acknowledged the Constitution did not come down from heaven. It was not written by the “gods.” When you read the Constitution and the Declaration you are reading documents written by very wise men but you are NOT reading the word of God.

          • wildjew

            Not all principles in the Constitution were / are Biblical principles. Many might have been but not all of them.

          • cenlacatholic

            That’s right. If religious liberty were a “right from God”, then the Israelites would have been justified in worshiping the golden calf, as God doesn’t change (Malachi 3:6).

          • wildjew

            When the Framers wrote the No Religious Test clause they could not conceive what we are facing today. What is the Constitution, a “national suicide pact?” No way do I support a Muslim or a Muslim-born (America-hating) president like Barack Obama. We are at war. Obama is on the side of the enemy and Americans foolishly elected him; twice!

          • cenlacatholic

            I am in no way partial to Mohametans, either. Although my point was that “religious liberty” was a Puritan (Anabaptist and, in actuality, Freemasonic) ideal of State indifferentism to religion.

            We afforded that right to ourselves, not from God to us. God wishes us to worship Him in the way He prescribed in the truth He has revealed. Using our free will to choose a false religion is an abuse of the free will, not the proper and legitimate exercise of.

          • wildjew

            I get your point but for non-Christians like myself I am thankful our Founders made a “kind” of separation between church and state. I would not want to live in a Christian theocracy.

          • cenlacatholic

            There were many kingdoms in Christendom that protected Jews as a class. Although, they did not allow the propagation of the religion of Judaism as it is seen as an error; and error does not have the same right as truth.

            Just as we do not promulgate a mathematics textbook with two answers to one equation, asking the student to choose which answer he believes is correct.

          • wildjew

            I am sure you are aware, several of the popes did protect their Jews from the angry mobs. As a Catholic you must know the Church has a history of hostility to the Jews and Judaism as you point out, you see it as “error.” Which you should know is an expression of anti-Semitism on your part. Nevertheless, scholars agree but for centuries of Jew-hatred promulgated from the pulpit, the Holocaust would have been inconceivable. Nazism was not Christian (it was pagan) but the Nazis drew from centuries of Jew hatred to carry out their murderous program, the Final Solution.

          • cenlacatholic

            Absolutely not. Anti-semitism is an ideology which says there is something inherently debased and wrong in the Jewish ethnicity.

            Jew is taken in the context of religion, that is, a Semite who rejects Jesus as the Messiah. Like St. Paul in 1 Thess 2:14-16, he condemns the Jews (unbelievers) being Jewish himself. Certainly doesn’t make him anti-semitic.

            I have to say, though, you are the first Jewish person to admit that Nazism was pagan instead of Christian. Luther played a huge role (his book Jews and Their Lies) in setting the cultural disdain for German Jewry.

          • wildjew

            I don’t want to get into a lengthy discussion here with you on this issue. It’s not the place for it. I see Paul as a self-hating Jewish traitor, very much UNlike Jesus. Paul did not even walk physically with Jesus but claimed he saw him in a vision on his way to Damascus. Unlike Jesus who remained with his people, Paul “quit.” Notice what Pamela wrote above in his piece:

            “Lord knows I have been smeared, defamed, and libeled. My good name has been dragged through the mud because of my stand for freedom and against jihad and sharia. I won’t list here the litany of abuse I’ve suffered over the past 15 years. My point is, I would never quit. No matter what.”

            Paul quit. Jesus did not quit. Paul is a Jewish traitor. I don’t care what people say in his defense.

            A couple or so years I was active here in our local community in the pro-life movement. Many of the activists (side walk counselors) at the abortion mill were Catholics because (to his credit) the local priest taught the importance of innocent human life from the pulpit. He also taught, “People who hate the Jews, hate God.” I have studied enough of the history of your church to my satisfaction. I do not read apologists. I read critical and honest historians. You can find plenty of apologists on Islam and plenty of apologists on the history of the Catholic church when it comes to the Jews.

            It certainly does make him anti-Semitic! There are plenty of anti-Semitic (self-loathing Jews), look at all the prominent Jews who condemn Pamela for her good work.

          • cenlacatholic

            This is not an ethnicity issue. When, in the New Testament, it says of the disciples and Apostles (all Jewish) “ran for fear of the Jews”, the meaning has obviously changed from Jewish ethnicity to Jew who has rejected Jesus as the Messiah.

            This has nothing to do with a disdain for the Jewish ethnicity. For goodness sakes, St. Paul’s God incarnated as Semite, salvation came from the Semites, the Holy Family were Semites, and all of the Apostles were Semite.

            It is a theological distinction being made.

          • wildjew

            I might add, Christians and other believers definitely have an important place in the political process. I am not one of those who says Christians should not be involved in politics. Conservative Christians make an invaluable contribution to the process.

            LOL You CLEARLY don’t understand Scripture! But thanks for the chuckle!

          • cenlacatholic

            Where in Scripture do you find religious liberty? Even an example?

          • Dorrie

            Not the exact phrase, but most assuredly the principal.

          • cenlacatholic

            Toleration of false religions is a principle, but never State indifference toward religion to allow one to pick and choose which religion they feel is right.

            God ordained that He be worshiped in the manner and truth that He revealed. Using your free will to choose a false religion is an abuse of that free will, not the proper exercise thereof.

          • Dorrie

            Yes, He did. That’s why I’m always amazed how Catholics have such a hook in their jaw and ignore Torah, which Yeshua lived and taught…

          • cenlacatholic

            Jesus fulfilled the law.

            (Hebrews 8:13) Now in saying a new, he hath made the former old. And that which decayeth and groweth old, is near its end.

          • Dorrie

            “fulfilled” doesn’t mean ABOLISHED! It means he showed US how to live Torah! That is the biggest problem with the churches! They don’t teach what Yeshua taught and lived! They water it down. Ugh . . .

          • cenlacatholic

          • cenlacatholic

            You haven’t given an example of what you believe was “abolished” in “churches”.

          • Dorrie

            READ! I said NONE of God’s Word has been abolished! Are you illiterate??

          • cenlacatholic

            You aren’t making sense, ma’am.

            “fulfilled” doesn’t mean ABOLISHED! It means he showed US how to live Torah! That is the biggest problem with the churches!

            Nothing was abolished, you implied that “churches” have abolished something.

          • Dorrie

            Churches have abolished the teaching of what the Messiah lived and taught! They cherry pick here and there, but miss most of it. For instance, the 4th Commandment – not a suggestion! But churches blow it off entirely.

            I’m too frustrated with you to reply to you further. You’ve had a hook in your jaw by haSatan and there’s no way to reason with someone like that.

          • cenlacatholic

            Acts 20:7 tell us the Apostles worshiped on the first day of the week (Sunday). Also 1 Corinthians 16:2, Colossians 2:16-17, and Revelation 1:10.

            The Apostles were given the authority to bind and loose (Matthew 16:19, 18:18). This is why circumcision is no longer necessary (Gal. 5:1-6). The same happened to the Sabbath, which became the 1st day of the week, when Jesus rose from the dead.

          • cenlacatholic

            Otherwise, what the founders created in State indifference toward religion is an American Pantheon: where every religion is afforded the same “rights”, Jesus is placed nicely next to Buddha, to Mohammed, to Zoroaster, and every false god and religion stands side by side.

            There becomes no distinction between truth and error. That’s what the American religious liberty boils down to.

    Sarah Palin worked tirelessly to forward the agenda she had always articulated and she continues her work to help put government back on the side of the people.

    After the 2008 election Sarah Palin helped lead Republicans to the greatest congressional victory in several generations during the 2010 election with her endorsements and rallies all over the country. Sarah Palin also had a very strong hand in the party’s successes during the 2012 and 2014 election .

    Palin has offered many statements on issues such as health care, the Federal Reserve’s money printing in funding our federal deficit, Crony Capitalism, energy independence, foreign policy, etc)

    She was the first Republican to make a high-profile critique of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing, though even earlier she had marked the collapsing value of the dollar as one of her issues and has repeatedly been a leading voice against the dangers of ObamaCare and the risks of President Obama’s approach to energy.

      Before you speak about Cruz loans, learn the truth so you won’t embarrass yourself. That loan was PAID and essentially, he was borrowing from his own money, much like a home equity loan!

      On the other hand, Trump hid money in Swiss banks then filed bankruptcy 4 times, putting thousands out of work and harming his lenders. Then he said, “They deserved to be hurt, they aren’t nice people.” I seriously doubt if his lenders begged him to borrow from them!

    In 1833, in U.S. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story’s Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States. § 1473
    “ It is indispensible too, that the president should be a natural born citizen of the United States…is an exception from the great fundamental policy of all governments, to exclude foreign influence from their executive councils and duties.”

    Under Constitutional Intent of the Natural Born Citizen Clause in Article 2.1.5, the successful US Government Attorney of later Wong Kim Ark fame shows us that the Paternal Link (that through the Father’s Status) is essential in determining who is or is NOT a United States Natural Born Citizen:
    “Birth, therefore, does not ipso facto confer citizenship, and is essential in order that a person be a native or natural born citizen of the United States, that his father be at the time of the birth of such person a citizen thereof, or in the case he be illegitimate, that his mother be a citizen thereof at the time of such birth.” – GEORGE D.

    CANADIAN BORN CITIZEN TED CRUZ
    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/08/19/ted-cruz-releases-birth-certificate-and-is-apparently-a-canadian-citizen-but/
    IS CONSTITUTIONALLY ILLEGAL TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. THAT IS A LEGAL FACT!!!

    Even Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz, Jr. knows this since when he ran for the U.S. Senate in Texas as stated and quoted in

    THE END OF THE AMERICAN PRESIDENCY By J.B. Williams March 29, 2015

    http://www.newswithviews.com/JBWilliams/williams300.htm
    “In a campaign interview during his freshman senate race, a GOP Texas State Committee member sat down with the young candidate to ask a few poignant vetting questions, and here are the questions and answers from that interview… (Redacted information is to protect the witness at this moment, but the witness is willing to offer sworn testimony)

    Interviewer: “Hello Mr. Cruz, it’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is (redacted). I am a (redacted) County GOP Precinct Chair and you have my support and vote. I have one question for you if I may?”
    Cruz: “Sure, go ahead.”

    Interviewer: “What is your understanding of how one becomes a natural born Citizen?”
    Cruz: “Two citizen parents and born on the soil.”

    In other words, before running for Senate, and closer to his Law Clerk days, as a Canadian Born Citizen (a foreigner by birth) Ted followed the U.S. Supreme Court decision Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874) @167 which says:
    “At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.”

    But wait, it gets worse: Under the news article “Proof that Ted Cruz did not become a US citizen at birth”
    http://www.examiner.com/article/proof-that-ted-cruz-did-not-become-a-us-citizen-at-birth
    “According
    to the Canadian Citizenship Act of 1946, also referred to as the “Act of
    1947” because of its effective date, Canada did not allow dual
    citizenship.

    …It was not until the passage of the
    “Citizenship Act” effective on February 15, 1977 that the ability to
    hold dual citizenship was changed.

    The Citizenship Act, effective February 15, 1977, replaced the 1947 Act with a more equitable statute. For example, British subjects no longer received special treatment and dual citizenship became recognized. There was only one provision for automatic loss of citizenship, limited to persons born in the second or subsequent generation outside Canada unless they took steps to retain their citizenship by their 28th birthday.

    …In order for Ted Cruz to have “become” a US citizen at birth in
    1970, his mother would have had to retain exclusive citizenship to the US and
    filed a CRBA (Consular Report of Birth Abroad) to “obtain” exclusive
    US citizenship at the time for her son Ted and renounced his automatic
    “naturally acquired” Canadian citizenship. The process in itself is
    considered a very abbreviated form of “naturalization”, thereby
    making such persons born outside of the OFFICIAL territories of the United
    States absolutely ineligible to become President of these United States in at
    least this one circumstance alone. Given that Canadian law did not allow dual
    citizenship at the time, then IF his mother filed a CRBA in 1970, his Canadian
    citizenship would likely have needed to be renounced before a new US
    citizenship could be granted.

    Ted’s Father has publicly admitted he became a Canadian citizen in 1968.”

    So, since Ted was definitely born in Canada,
    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/08/19/ted-cruz-releases-birth-certificate-and-is-apparently-a-canadian-citizen-but/
    even if one parent were a U.S. Citizen, which under naturalization, it looks like the mother was no longer, we still by example, have the ineligibility of F.D.R. Jr. to guide us on the matter. The N. Y. Times, May 26, 1949, p. 26, columns 3 – 4, by legal example demonstrated that legally Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., third son of the late President, “never can carry that great name back into the White House” since his birth on August 17, 1914, was at Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada, home of a Roosevelt Canadian summer estate.

    Palin was never a true conservative. She raised taxes with democrats on Alaska. She appointed a pro abort Planned Parenthood lawyer to the Alaska Supreme Court. She mocked conservatives during the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell debate, suggesting that THEY themselves were gay for opposing gays in the military.

    Last fall she supported a pro abortion, pro Obama care, Medicaid expanding, tax raising union supporter. And he is doing all of those things without any complaints from Sarah Palin, or Bristol.

    Of course both have time to bash Ted Cruz.

        1. The woman Governor Palin appointed to the Supreme Court was sufficiently liberal enough for Obama to a point to the federal bench. Now she is on the court of appeals

        2. Palin marked conservatives during the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell controversy by retweeting a tweet from the lesbian Tammy Bruce. It’s sad to look under the beds of the Conservatives who are opposed to repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

        3. Pale openly supported Alaska Governor Walker who was pro-abortion Pro higher taxes and pro Obamacare.

            Palin’s ACES tax was a progressive tax with a top marginal rate of 75 percent……75 percent! She passed it because of support from democrats.

            Palin turned on Parnell last year because he replaced it with a low, flat, Reagan-like tax.

            So she decided to endorse a liberal, who was endorsed by NARAL, the unions and the environmentalists.

            According to the Alaska state constitution, Alaskans are the resource owners in their state; and it was Palin’s duty as their CEO to get the best deal for Alaskans while at the same time partnering with these oil companies for the mutual benefit of all.

            In 2007, Sarah Palin signed ACES—Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share—a net tax on oil profits that was passed in a bipartisan and transparent manner.

            ACES replaced the corruption-tainted oil tax plan of the previous administration, which was passed in secret and ultimately lead to the federal indictment of several Alaskan state officials and oil company personnel.

            Sarah Palin has stood up to the major oil companies, and has made utterly transparent the State of Alaska’s dealings with them, but she is neither in their pocket nor a rabble-rouser who unfairly demonizes them. She’s dealt with them like a responsible public servant, not a class warrior.

            When Sarah Palin took office in December of 2006, Alaska was pulling up the rear when it came to jobs, ranking 49th out of the 50 states and Washington D.C. In her first year in office, Alaska was 6th best in improvement in unemployment.

            By the end of the final year of her tenure, Alaska was ranked 21st in the country. This kind of impressive record on jobs is how Alaska was 2nd best in job growth during her tenure. Data from the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development, showed that in addition to a 13.7% increase in resource development jobs, Alaska saw a nearly 5% increase in business service jobs and a 6.4% increase in education and health related jobs during Sarah Palin’s time in office.

          Alaska’s credit rating went through the roof because Palin’s ACES oil tax collected billions in excess revenue.

          And it is no wonder that as a result, Alaska’s oil production fell and the state was overtaken by more business friendly states like North Dakota.

        Don’t forget that Palin’s own ethics law snagged Sarah Palin.

        She was found to be in violation and was forced to return $300,000.

        • Ladoj

          There were some 27 “ethics” complaints filed against Sarah Palin. All complaints ( but two) dismissed as lacking any merit. The other two were settlements where Sarah Palin was cleared of any wrongdoing!

          Many lawsuits and ethics complaints were filed against Palin when she returned from the campaign. These lawsuits were filed by a well-funded group of activists whose goal was to bog down her administration with lawsuits and paperworks & to bankrupt her middle class family. Palin was responsible for her own legal fees due to the ethic laws at the time. She & her staff were spending 80% of their time defending lawsuits & dealing with FOIA requests… that take an enormous amount of time to process… instead of doing the job she was elected to do.

          No sooner would one lawsuit go away then another was filed. They not only wanted to destroy her but it became a game to them.Palin was the target of these activists. Sarah Palin knew that for the sake of her state it would be best if she stepped aside from the governorship.

          In an article Sarah Palin said:

          She promised to keep the frivolous anti-Palin law suits away from the Alaskan people and to be more effective on the stump ( supporting candidates , fundraising, etc)

          Sarah Palin was truthful on both accounts!

          She was the catalyst for the takeover of the House , twice as many Governships and lopsided Gop Statehouses with her endorsements and rallies all over the country during the 2010 election.Sarah Palin also had a very strong hand in the party’s few successes during the 2012 election and 2014 election.

            From the Alaska Daily News, June 24, 2010:

            *********
            “An investigator has determined former Gov. Sarah Palin’s legal defense fund broke state ethics law and said Palin has agreed to settle the matter by having the trust return more than $386,000 to donors.”

          • Ladoj

            No wrongdoing on Palin’s part was found.The personnel board investigator Timothy Petumenos said Palin acted in good faith and relied on a team of attorneys.

            And this is on record. (from the official report)

            “The Trust was formed and administered following the specific advice of counsel solicited by Governor Palin and her aides. Because of the good faith reliance upon the advice of counsel who were specifically retained to insure compliance with the Ethics Act, the violations were not knowingly committed.”

            Here is the video of Mr. Petumenos. (0.48)

          • RUexperienced

            So your point is that Sarah Palin was found to be in violation of the ethics law, championed by Sarah Palin. But it was not her fault because it was a mistake made by the lawyers hired by Sarah Palin.

            Funny how it all comes back to her, isn’t it?

  • Ladoj

    Sarah Palin was a sitting governor, and at that time, before the Obama campaign and their allies in the press spent months relentlessly smearing her good name, she had the highest approval ratings of any governor in the country.

    Sarah held progressively higher office; she has many years executive management experience at local, regional and state levels and has a history of being a reformer and taking on powerful interests for the benefit of ordinary people.

    She was a fiscal conservative who made the largest veto cuts in Alaska history, reined in the reckless waste, cut her own expenses, sold the governor’s private jet, let the personal chef go, and put away billions of dollars in savings for Alaska for a rainy day.

    She was a tough CEO who went toe to toe with the Big Oil companies and fought to get the best deal for Alaskans, the resource owners she represented.

    Taking on corruption and crony capitalism has always been a cornerstone of Sarah Palin’s agenda; in Alaska she did take on the old-boy network — the oil companies and her own party .As oil and gas commissioner, Sarah Palin called out the unethical practices of members of her own party. As Governor, she sought to end the back room deals and improper relationships between oil companies and politicians.

    And she did all of this as a woman from a modest background who was entirely self-made – without the benefit of a rich or influential father or husband. All of Sarah Palin’s success was due entirely to her own hard work and intelligence.

    • Johnny Wendigo

      I worked in Alaska several times and I can vouch for all that…Alaska was then more corrupt than Nigeria and Sarah Palin was the first honest politician up there I ever heard of…We even bought us a senator up there(selling planes) but they were so crooked they could not stay bought out and our bum ended up swiftly in jail!

  • irishcoins

    Gee Pam. I would never have expected this from you.

    I know Ted Cruz has successfully pulled off this “true conservative” act, and has taken in a lot of people. But Ted Cruz did write and support the 31 immigration fast tracks in the TPA legislation, on behalf of Goldman Sachs, and the Club for Growth. TC did support the Corker Amendment, which you are familiar with, and has advocated w Glenn Beck for the settlement of huge numbers of Palestinian Refugees, whose background checks are not verifiable.

    Those issues are today, and those issues are your issues, compared to the right for life issue, or compared to Mr. Trump’s views on abortion during the 70’s or 80’s.

    Palin “quit” the Governorship, after Dim lawyers out of TX kept filing ethics complaints, which Gov. Palin and the State of Alaska were on the hook to defend. Her mission had been accomplished in AK, and she left the post in the hands of her chosen successor.

    Conservatism is more than just championing the right to life, and Trump has said that he is Pro Life. Rev. Falwell backs trump on this.

    And Sarah Palin is pro life, not from a preacher’s way of advocacy, but from living it.

    Conservatism is about small government, and about accepting individual responsibility. Our local TP does not even take a stand on the abortion issues, as they are more about noise making, than about conservatism. I don’t have to explain this stuff to you. You know this.

    I do know that Sarah Palin has joined the fight w you against Jihad. I don’t know the circumstances of Sarah Palin’s not participating in your Ground Zero event, but I know Palin is on the same page w you in defending America from the Caliphate.

    I do know that Sarah Palin is on the same page with you against illegal immigration and specifically about settling large numbers of undocumented Middle Eastern “refugees,” even calling for O’s Impeachment for Immigration via Exec Orders, rather than by Law.

    Sarah Palin seems to be on your side in all ways, except supporting Ted Cruz for President. It’s hard. I walked away from TC, myself, TPA being the tipping point.

    Mr. Trump has a vested interest in NYC, and America, and in defending it, from all enemies, including your enemies.

    • Dorrie

      Pam is speaking the truth about Trump. Satan has used Trump to tickle the ears of the weak and put a hook in their jaw, including Falwell!

    • wildjew

      It’s easy to criticize a man who has had to make the difficult decisions; who has a voting record like Senator Cruz, unlike Mr. Trump who has no voting record; who has held no political office even as he’s bought politicians for business reasons. I would suggest you look into Mr. Trump’s life, his business record and his principles or lack thereof; look at the way he and his father have conducted themselves with their fellow man and society before you severely judge Senator Cruz.

      • wildjew

        Do you even know the meaning of the term “anti-Zion” or anti-Zionist? If anyone has made anti-Zion statements it is Mr. Trump. Ironic huh?

        • Johnny Wendigo

          Zion does actually mean “HEAVEN” and is just as Christian a term as Kabbalist, OK!
          And I think the grossest statement these muslim nazi say is that they are not ant-Semite, but only anti-Sionist
          I’m actually Buddhist but I think being Sionist is being very respectable even if I dont believe in hell or heaven.

          • wildjew

            Zion does NOT actually mean heaven. It is a piece of real estate on the earth. A piece Mr. Trump does not recognize. Trump is anti-Zionist, not Pamela.

          • Johnny Wendigo

            In Kabbalah the more esoteric reference is made to Tzion being the spiritual point from which reality emerges, located in the Holy of Holies of the First, Second and Third Temple.[

            In the Rastafari movement, “Zion” stands for a utopian place of unity, peace and freedom, as opposed to “Babylon”, the oppressing and exploiting system of the materialistic modern world and a place of evil.

            wherever GOD is – there is ZION and worship is in the ‘TEMPLE OF HIS PRESENCE”, because God is ‘Omni-Present’. Yeshua /Jesus said to a devout Gentile, woman in the City of Samaria, “A time is coming… when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth” Not always a ‘Place’!

            SO WHAT SHOULD OUR ATTITUDE AND MESSAGE BE TO ZION – JEWISH ISRAEL – THE ‘PEOPLE OF ZION’ – TODAY?

            By PROCLAIMING! Bringing this message to the chosen ones of Israel, wherever in the world they are! Isaiah 52:7 “who proclaim peace…who proclaim salvation who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns’. “ Isaiah 62:11, “The LORD has made a proclamation to the ends of the Earth: [even N.Z.] Say to the Daughter of Zion, See, you Saviour Comes!” And furthermore this message was given to the Gentiles, to share. In Acts 10:34 -36 Peter brought this message to Gentiles. Also Paul spoke not only of messengers to the chosen of Israel, but in Ephesians 3: 14 -19 prays for the Father’s blessing to be: “Together with all the saints” (like you and me!) This wonderfully fulfils Isaiah chapter 56: 1-8, which although it does not use the word Zion – means it! In other words, God’s Messages of Salvation, peace and blessing through Yeshua/ Jesus should be made known to the entire world! As very unfair and plain cruel methods are being used to defame Israel, and even efforts to undercut the economics of Israel by various Groups (even so called ‘Christian’ groups), wherever we are we can rebuff and correct these.

        Denazification. Interesting term when we are talking about Mr. Trump.

        I cannot verify the veracity of this news story though it has been around. It could be nothing more than hearsay, etc.

        ‘Donald Trump kept a book of Hitler’s speeches by his bed, according to his ex-wife’

        Hitler was one of history’s most prolific orators, building a genocidal Nazi regime with speeches that bewitched audiences….

            YOU brought Hitler in the argument!

          • wildjew

            You brought up denazification. No one credible is suggesting at this point Donald Trump is Adolf Hitler but if Mr. Trump enjoyed reading Herr Hitler’s speeches it is fair to mention it without having a liberal or a progressive invoke your shyster lawyer Mike Godwin. No historic analogies are perfect. Godwin and leftists like him seek to stifle legitimate discussion and debate.

          • Johnny Wendigo

            It was the Stalinists that post war, obsessed with the nazis to make people forget about the Ribbentrop pact that allowed a bankrupt Hitler to conquer Europe with Russian gold(stolen from the Spaniards), food, oil, ammunition and strategic minerals, not mentioning Poland partition and Finland invasion. Godwin just pointed out Stalinists’ ridiculousness and forever discredited their “Arguments by Hitler”…

          • wildjew

            Godwin is beloved by far-leftists and unprincipled progressives (like you) who regularly invoke the fraud.

            Tellin’ ya. It’s just plain protestantism. Because there is no such thing as a “protestant church”, each protestant is able to decide for himself/herself what the Scriptures mean to them. Protestants rejected the pope and gained a billion popes, each one of them their own authority.

            Unprecedented in the ancient Hebrew religion or in Christianity until after 1517.

            I grew up a protestant. You’d be amazed at the wacky, strange things people teach in these independent “churches” that they “received from the Holy Ghost.” Protestantism, dividing Christianity for 500 years.

          • wildjew

            I just watched the video where Cruz’s father spoke about the kings and the priests in ancient Israel and the “spoils of war.” That is what nations did back then in antiquity after they defeated their enemies. Pastor Cruz is teaching from the Hebrew Bible. I did not hear him say Senator Cruz is the king who will bring the spoils of war. Look, I am not a Christian. I have theological differences with Christians but we can agree on what are called our shared “Judeo-Christian” values.

  • Radio Real Free Europe

    Hi, Pam, you forgot to write that your friend Geert Wilders endorsed Trump (time to call him an opportunist, right?) and that Goldman Cruz wants more Muslims in the US. You are also a liar, Trump has never supported amnesty, he said it shouldn’t be even discussed as long as the border is open. Perhaps you believe in Nazi UFOs too if you see something photo-shopped on the net.
    I’ll never believe anything on this partisian site again; and I ask you to endorse Cruz with a really big public announcement – who about one of your NY bus ads? – so that even more people will see what that corrupt Canadian hypocrite is – the poster boy of the lunatic fringe, owned by the same people as Hillary and a criminal, too. You’re nothing more than a second-handed shock jock talking about very, very serious issues only in order to rage on about something, and with your load of hate against Palin you have exposed yourself. It’s easy to imagine that you had written a love letter to her if she backed Cruz – you’re as hypocritical and as deluded as the so-called Religion of Peace, a wonderful thing according to Ted Cruz (said it in December during the CNN debate).
    Pam, you have sided with the Muzzos and corrupt Goldman, and now you are far, far more irrelevant than Palin. You will see how irrelevant you are when Cruz is crushed by Trump and the Christian woman you despise. Go and endorse Angela Merkel, she gave an award to the guy who draw the Mohammed cartoon. I guess that makes her a good person.

        I cannot say what she did by walking away was brave and honest. I too thought Sarah Palin quit.

        • Dorrie

          She had good reason to walk away. And I followed that entire saga very closely. I admired her strength and uprightness. But I’m STILL wondering why she attached her wagon to 2 RINO’s in a row.

      • RUexperienced

        They were not frivolous “lawsuits.” They were ethics complaints, heard in front of a panel of officials who were appointed by Sarah Palin herself.

        Also, at the time Sarah Palin quit, she reassured us that they were behind her. “The ethics complaints have all been resolved,” she stated in her resignation speech. “We won them all!”

        So, according to her, she didn’t quit until she was in the clear.

        • Dorrie

          Every one of them was frivolous. The left was in sheer panic that McCain and Palin would win the race! It was their way of distracting and basically it worked. That, along with low-information and racist voters.

          • RUexperienced

            Most of them were frivolous. But when put under pressure, Palin folded like a cheap ironing board and went for the big bucks.

            We found out five months after she quit that her publisher paid her the first $1.2 million on her $10 million book deal weeks before she announced she was quitting. Nothing illegal about it. Most people quit when they hit the lotto or come into a lot of money.

            She knew that over the next year she was going to make more money than if she stayed on as governor for an entire century.

            So who wouldn’t quit when the times got tough?

          • Dorrie

            On the contrary. She resigned to save the state more money on the idiocy. I know folks who know her personally and believed what she was doing was valid and honorable. But as I said earlier, now, her association with first McCain and now Trump, give me great pause. She has changed radically.

          • RUexperienced

            I have bounced back and forth between believing that Sarah Palin is a genuine movement conservative who got off track because she was under unfair fire from the opposition, or whether she was a moderate liberal willing to go along with the democrats for her own personal advancement.

            I think time is showing where her leanings are.

    So, I’ve lost a LOT of faith in Cruz.
    Will Trump keep his promises, build the wall, stop the Muslim immigration, who knows.
    Trouble is at this point I’m not sure any of the others including Cruz is any better bet.

    • Dorrie

      Cruz said he would ban ALL Muslims trying to come into the country from areas that have active ISIS, AlQaeda, etc. people. That covers quite a bit of sand.

        The female shooter in San Bernadino came from Pakistan via Saudi Arabia.
        So she would clear the ISIS-nexus prohibition.
        ALL Muslim “immigration”, “education”, and “tourism” visas could be stopped while still allowing the King of Jordan to visit.
        I agree Trump is often clueless and I don’t trust him to even keep the few absolute promises he’s making (ie stopping Muslim “immigration”) but –
        Cruz is not going to fix that problem either.
        So we’re pretty well f-ed.

    Hate to wake you up, but trump way ahead in all the polls, and will sweep the prmaries. The trump board up there, was before he got into politics, and played the game just like all the other businessmen and lobbyists did, which is why he was successful! Go Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, that chart is really shocking. It disturbs me to consider the possibility that Trump may be a phony and an opportunist, just pandering to people who are fed up and frustrated with the status quo.

    I think that Cruz has more moral integrity than Trump and a better understanding of the Constitution than Trump has.

    I also believe that people love the feeling of watching Trump run roughshod over liberal bullies and putting them in their place. People are so sick of radical liberal tyranny, that they will give their support to the first person to stand up to them. Trump is a very good showman in that regard.

    It doesn’t necessarily mean that he would a good president; it just means he gives people a good feeling.

    Bill Clinton also gave people a good feeling back when he was campaigning in ’92. He was so charming, that people loved the feeling they got when they heard him speak. (Of course, we didn’t know he was a rapist back then)

      Yeah, so did Obama, and look what that brought us to . . . I choose Cruz, he has proven he loves God and country.

        I prefer anonymity online, because I do not want my political views to come back and bite me if they get discovered by employment recruiters or other people in positions of power.

    I like the lead in picture with Trump in his flowing coat.
    Instead of greeting Sarah the caption could be: I’m here to take you home baby !

  • bob e

    i don’t know pam . i have sincere admiration for you.
    i don’t think you are even close here.

  • Pamela, It is worse than you think. The Trump phenomenon is not new. The movement is nothing more than a different American flavored verson of what happened in Germany in the 1930s. In the 2016 American version, the cause is just, the problems real, but the chosen solution (Trump), is a delusion — a “hero” which is no more than a fanciful graven image hewn out in the imagination of “The True Believers”.

    What we are seeing with Trump is a nationalistic populist movement sucking in a lot of good patriotic people. People better figure Trump out pretty quick or we will be in more trouble than we are already in. Trump is no true conservative, but for a few slip-ups that betray him, he could get an Oscar for his performance. This is no more than 1930s and 2008 populism déjà vu in a completely different cloak. Trump is using the modus operandi described in Eric Hoffer’s 1951 book, “The True Believer” – Thoughts On The Nature Of Mass Movements. Trump has found a void and has created a cult following. He is taking legitimate issues and concerns and using them to generate a fanatical mass movement of “True Believers” — intoxicated Trumpaholics, and Trump is their cult leader. There is no way to talk to many of them; their minds have been snatched. Many will not realize the fantasy until it all falls down. History repeats. It is déjà vu all over again.

    Pamela, you mainly don’t like Trump because he scolded you for provoking the Muslims with your draw Mohammad art event in Garland, Tx. I respect you for doing that, it worked out well, we killed two radical Muslims bent on killing innocent Americans. Good job. But it could have ended a lot worse, with innocent people being out gunned by terrorists. Face it, there was a lot of luck involved in taking out those two heavily gunned terrorists. So I can forgive Trump for his remarks.

    Beyond that situation who do you think will do the most to protect us from Muslim terrorists? Certainly not Rubio who supported the amnesty bill in Congress, certainly not Bush who called illegal immigration “an act of love”. Certainly not Hillary or Sanders who both want to import tens of thousands of Muslim refugees. Cruz might want to, but he is likely to alienate Congress so bad, that nothing will get done. He has a history of digging his heels in on issues, blocking deals.

    Trump is the only candidate who says lets not import any Muslims. He says temporarily until we figure out what is going on. Once we do figure out what is going on, based on Germany, I think we will all conclude we don’t need any Muslim immigrants. Plus he is the only one who will actually build a southern border wall. The others talk like they will but probably won’t. I think Trump will build the wall.

  • SmellyMike

    Trump is more conservative than Cruz. You morons don’t know what you’re talking about.

    • RUexperienced

      Trump is not more conservative than Hillary Clinton.

  • ATexasGirl10

    I think Sarah Palin ripped her pants with true conservatives when she endorsed DT. I believe she has lost any influence she had with them. I can no longer trust her for anything.

    I used to like Ted Cruz and wanted to believed in his words, until I watched his speeches in 2013, He makes fellow Constitutional Harvard Law Alumni, Barack Hussein Obama look like a lightweight liar. I’d bet they had the same professors, because both Obama’s 2008 campaign rhetoric & Cruz’s 2016 campaign rhetoric is almost identical. They both can boldly lie and the base just believes without actually researching, because both spent every speech praising the US Constitution, boldly lying, falsely accusing others & both shame voters. In 2013, Cruz promoted & belittled people to support his RPI Status, for illegals, “legalizing illegals to bring them out of the shadows,” with an additional 500% increase in foreign worker visas, and doubling the legal immigration cap. Listen to his own speeches and interviews,re: immigration in 2013, if you care about the truth. Trump is a doer, not a lawyer with a big mouth. Trump is a businessman, not a politician, so he’s rough around the edges, but his judgement is exceptional. Once, he’s informed, he does what is right and fights for it. He can not be bought. TRUMP 2016.
