By The Right Scoop


The latest from Sarah Palin:

Must I Repeat? Quit Making Things Up!

Outrageous. Once again the cover-up is worse than the “crime.” Secretary of State John Kerry WAS on his boat while Egypt fell into turmoil resulting in an overthrow of its new government ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood that the Obama Administration had so recently supported and may still support. (That, however, we do not know because President Obama’s absolutely dithering foreign policies, his “leading from behind,” and his benign statements on the Muslim Brotherhood make no sense to sensible people.)

The State Department categorically denied Kerry was on his boat. Yet CBS had pictures to prove it. Goodness. There is no need to lie, even on such a “little” thing as the location of a government leader during a military confrontation happening in real time. (Benghazi? Ring a bell? There still isn’t anyone in the media who’ll find out where our Commander-in-Chief was that night.) Come on, Obama Administration! It’s no big darn deal that Kerry was on his boat! We expect, and deserve, to assume that our highest ranking public servants to whom We the People have given the most responsibility are always working – even when they’re clearing their heads and breathing in some fresh air on a yacht, or sweating away stress on a basketball court, or yukking it up with pals on the fairway… let’s trust they’re always preparing for the proverbial 3:00 AM phone call.

Being on his boat isn’t the issue. Blatantly deceiving the American people is the issue.

Our government, yet again, either had no idea where the boss was, or worse yet, they lied to us. (Oops-a-daisy. Correction. In Obamaspeak, we were told the “least untruthful statement.”) Our government directed its swift-ly boat changing denials to what one can only surmise is their perception of who we are: a nation of sheep – heads down, grazing away, gullible, ignorant, and undeserving of truth.

Confronted with photographic evidence, the State Department merely tossed the public a handful of hay today in its tepid effort to kinda-sorta explain the whole thing away. Something about, well, yeah, so the evidence contradicted all their public claims, but… eh, no harm, no foul. And like good herder dogs, with calm authority to avoid commotion, the bureaucrats barked the suggestion that we all just move along now.

No. You move along, little doggie. Enough is enough. It’s unacceptable. Remember, the nation’s Mama Grizzlies don’t just rise up to swat away threats to protect the next generation. They also school, scold, and signal to teach a lesson. One lesson taught all children is if you lie on the little things, you’ll lie on the big things.

George Orwell wrote of a time when citizens could no longer trust big government, and by wearing down the citizenry through doublespeak and lies a tired country finally retreated to its dark and depressing demise.

America, we shall not go there! Why? Because if we know from our nation’s forefathers that weariness is not in our blood! It’s not in our DNA to retreat. Have faith that there are enough patriots in our exceptional nation willing to fight together for what is right. Proof of this is all the families still encouraging and supporting their loved ones who choose U.S. military service. And proof of a unified commitment to defend our republic is what the independent tea party movement is all about. Disregard the constant criticism, mocking, and flagrant lies about this diverse, proud movement that still spew from big government cheerleaders and their lapdogs in the media. Despite harassment and intimidation, commonsense conservatives are rising up again to get a better view of what is ahead. They are identifying threats to our Constitution and our children’s future. The permanent political class angrily bemoans this because they know our diverse working class – those who make the world go ’round – can shake off the slumber, unify, and effectively encourage others to come out of a 2012 hibernation and demand accountability at the 2014 ballot box. It’s there we prove the average, everyday American’s ferocious strength when exercising that beautiful belief in loyalty only to a government of the people, by the people, for the people. Until then, we mustn’t have the fighting instinct of sheep. Pay attention, do your own homework on candidates and political machines, turn off media that would disrespect you by continuing to deceive, and keep the faith.

While celebrating America’s glorious Independence this week, be secure in knowing that there are more of us who support men and women ready and willing to fight on our behalf for freedom and truth than those who would continually deceive us. Thank God. And thank a Vet.

State Department: say you’re sorry and don’t ever do this again. CBS News: thank you for doing your job on this issue.

Happy 4th of July weekend, America.

– Sarah Palin

    Brilliant of Governor Palin to tie this to Benghazi! She fights to win. The Bush mafia sits on their hands.

      And now Jorge Bushie is openly pushing amnesty (again) for 30 MILLION ILLEGAL CRIMINALS and leftwing socialist voters to finally overthrow America.
      The entire Bush clan is despicable!

          Jorge Bush actively campaigning for amnesty to help obamatollah’s communist overthrow of America is absolutely disgusting and traitorous.

          Whatever you say friend. 
          I’ll jump on ‘Bash Bush Bandwagon’, like he’s really one of the biggest threats to this country, right now. ;-) ;-)
          I’ll try to ignore ‘Hanoi John’ Kerry, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Barack Obama and the rest of the ‘communist traitor clan’ presently running the country and focus on an old guy living on a ranch in Texas. ;-) ;-)

          freeperjim tinlizzieowner  Actually your both right and as long as GW was keeping his mouth shut I was willing to give him a pass in present time anyway.

          It appears that blood is still thicker than water and we know Jeb is an amnesty guy so I now have to move GW over to the enemy side.

        Could it be followers of Islam are among the the millions of illegals being afforded a pathway to citizenship.  Anything less than deportation to those bypassing  immigration laws is the definition of amnesty.

        Obama Finally Gets Some Love… From George W. Bush
        November 9, 2010
        In his 497-page memoir, Decision Points, Bush heaps
        praise on Barack Obama. …
        In Decision Points, Bush praises Obama’s “smart,
        disciplined, high-tech campaign to get his young supporters to the polls.” He
        writes that: “On election night, I was moved by images of black men and women
        crying on TV. Barack Obama had campaigned on hope, and that was what he had
        given many Americans.”
        Ultimately, argues Bush, Obama represented the
        future while McCain was the face of the past. “Like Dad in 1992 and Bob Dole in
        1996, John McCain was on the wrong side of generational politics,” argues Bush.
        “Electing him would have meant skipping back a generation. By contrast,
        47-year-old Barack Obama represented a generational step forward.”

        • famouswolf

          Well, that just torpedoed any respect I had left for Bush.
          Cruz and Palin are a step forward. Nothing else.

  • DebbyX

    Nothing surprises anymore with this corrupt admin.  Good for Palin to, once again, tell it like it is!

  • crosssignals72bravo

    Good thing for Kerry was fishing,  if he had been in Egypt, Kerry would have been the fish bait, and who knows but with Kerry’s democrat rot,  the Egyptians may have caught a catfish big enough to feed the whole family and Fido too!

  • TIMERUNNERSC

    Thank you  Ms Palin, for continuing to speak out about this rogue administration. While Kerry was standing down fishing and having a gay oh time on the water, has there been any reports that Obama or Pelosi on the boat too?

  • http://cfp4us.org/ WolfieUSA

    Sarah Palin is plain spoken and truthful.  Like a hot knife cutting through butter.  Or, more descriptively like a white dagger through the black heart of liberal lies… :-)

  • rick2340

    I actually thought the same thing when I heard about this kerry yacht issue.  Amazing the way the government lies about the basic things – just like communist russia or nazi germany.  Each time this occurs the press shows us how corrupt it is by not caring.  It’s all the more reason how utterly outrageous it is that marco rubio and the republican members of the stupid gang of eight is working with this corrupt administration on the ridiculous 1200+ page immigration bill.

  • http://www.navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    Somehow I think the world is a lot safer with Kerry on the boat. I have this feeling that if he stuck his nose in what was going on in Egypt, the country would be even worse off and Americans in Egypt would be in danger of being slaughtered. Let him stay on his boat for all the use he is (which isn’t much). The Egyptians will have to work out their own problems.

  • strangernfiction

    And they will continue to lie, because there are no consequences.

    • Orangeone

        • Orangeone

          strangernfiction Orangeone Sorry, was pointing at the GOP. Yeah, the “threat” to leave the GOP is worthless.  Some of us have left, millions more need to and tell the GOP it’s because they are just like the Democrats.  Maybe big biz and LaRaza will line their pockets but no one will show up for them at the polls and they’ll drag their sorry arses home.

        • strangernfiction

          Orangeone strangernfiction It’s not the stupid party vs. the evil party, it’s the evil party vs. the evil party. The fascist party vs. the Marxist party to be more exact.

        • volsense

          Orangeone strangernfiction What the RINOs cannot comprehend is that without Conservatives, they will never be relevant on a national election again. Democrats and republicasns have ceased to exist.  It is Conservative vs progressives.  It is the American people against their corrupt elitest “masters”.

    State Dept. Denies Kerry Was On Yacht During Egyptian President’s Ouster
    July 3, 2013 10:10 PM
    The State Department is denying a report that Secretary of State John Kerry spent the day on his yacht in Nantucket as Egypt’s military ousted President Mohammed Morsi.
    CBS This Morning senior producer in Washington Mosheh Oinounou tweeted aphoto of the “Isabel” and reported that a producer had spotted Kerry on board Wednesday.
    Kerry spokesperson Jen Psaki denied the report.
    “Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4 am, Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt,” Psaki said in a statement.

  • njmom

    Sarah, I love you but you’re asking the impossible here. The Obama govt is no more able to tell the truth than their father Satan is able and anyone who believes any word which comes out of any of their mouths should do so at their own risk because more than likely it is a LIE!

  • Laurel A

    Does Obama even know what the truth is?

    • PoCoTex

      Laurel A  The problem is that Mr. Obama could not care less what the truth is.

      • Laurel A

        PoCoTex Laurel A Good point.

  • Rshill7

    Orwellian references are most appropriate these days. Things were much better in 1984…the actual 1984 that is. Propaganda is another word for lies from the left. Members of the left lie with reckless abandon. Did you happen to catch the headline:  

    Top Liberal Blog Daily Kos: Republican Governors “Salivating” Over Rapes In Cairo…

    Yep, that’s over at Weasel Zippers.

    Hyperbole is a word that fails to describe what lefties say and do. It’s simply ridiculous lies. Most of it seems as if they’ve been taking copious notes on what they are doing, then using those notes to accuse us of it. That’s Alinsky 101. I wonder what Alinsky 301 would be like. Perhaps if I read The Satanic Bible, it’d be the same kinds of things.

    I like to call the local lefties “commies” in our local paper online threads. Here’s a fun exchange:

    “I have looked behind every tree, around every corner, in every building, and have NEVER see (sic) these ‘commies’ that some fearful folk seem so worried about.” (local lefty)

    “You’ve looked all those places for a commie? You left out the most obvious place to look.”

    “A full length mirror.”

    “Try that and get back to us. K?” (Rshill7)

    Do you like to shove truth in local lefties faces? Me too. They need to be called out and ridiculed for the utter fools they are.

    • Stehekin912

      “Salivating”.  is that like licking our chops?  Disgusting sycophants.

  • Indianamom

    I have total distrust for the Obama Administration. Also, I have total distrust for many Republicans. Politicians are an elitist class who will lie and cheat to maintain their place at the public trough. In the meantime, the sheep will continue to graze. Although Congress has a dismal approval rating, the sheep will vote for the incumbents in the next election cycle.

    • volsense

      Indianamom You are not alone Indianamom.  When we say the low information voters elected these liars and theives, we are being too kind.  Obama can manipulate the  ignorance of the brainwashed lemmings as no other

  • clubgitmo

    Everything and I mean everything this administration does is a lie. From every scandal, to the unemployment #’s, to inflation rates, to nobamacare and on and on. And yet the useless GOP does nothing and jut sits on their asses. I am convinced we do not even had 2 parties any more. Both the left and the right are in on the destruction of this country and the massive wealth redistribution.

    • volsense

      clubgitmo When the constant lies and deceptions from Obama and the most corrupt mainstream media in our history become so obvoius that even the most brainwashed sychophants are embarassed, we are past being in deep trouble.The truth is beyond Obama and Holder’s comprehension and the GOP eunuchs in Congress do nothing but run their mouths.

      • clubgitmo

        volsense clubgitmo Well said. Bottom line when are in way too deep.

    • palintologist

      clubgitmo You’re right.  They’re all one big happy family in DC. 
      Heck, even Rand Paul is making TV ads with Lamar Alexander to rehabilitate Alexander from his treasonous immigration vote in exchange for the GOP establishment supporting Rand for prez in ’16.  Smells bad already, but then, Rand’s mocking of those against amnesty earlier this week was enough for me.
      He’s also fond of using that “Coming out from the shadows” BS re illegals also.

      • clubgitmo

        palintologist clubgitmo There are very few in the GOP I would vote for right now. I will vote but if not a true Conservative I will write in somebodys name. I’m done with the GOP and the liberals are nothing but communists.

      • Orangeone

        palintologist clubgitmo Wow, I knew he endorsed McConnell, the man behind the amnesty push, but TV ads with Alexander?  I had enough of the Jr.PaulBot quite some time ago but for him to compare those of us that believe in the Rule of Law to Nazis shows he has more than one screw loose upstairs.

    • Orangeone

      clubgitmo The GOP isn’t sitting on their arses, they are shoving Obama’s destruction of America agenda through and that includes Paul Ryan, who we may well have been unlucky enough to have for VP, Christie, Rubio, etc.  Where is the pretty boy Rubio on this? Oh wait, he’s part of Obama’s team and now trying to sponsor the anti-abortion legislation to try and win back the base that he stabbed in the back with his pack full of amnesty lies.

      • clubgitmo

        Orangeone clubgitmo I totally agree with one on this. That’s why I said we basically have a one party system. I have been all over Rubio for a long time because I just did not trust him because his main purpose always seemed to be “immigration reform” (AKA amnesty). Paul Ryan? Another sellout with one bad ass voting record. But hey he sounds like the boy next door.

        • Orangeone

          clubgitmo Orangeone I wonder when Ryan will be told he has to leave the Catholic church now that he is promoting homosexual adoption.  Those poor children being forced to live in a disgusting environment. Whatever happened to their rights?

        • clubgitmo

          Orangeone clubgitmo Ryan sure talks a good game. Very sad what has happened to him.

    At least it was his own yacht and we weren’t paying for it.  Unlike someone else’s $100 million trip to Africa.

    • Orangeone

      Pinkflowers He intentionally registered it out of state to avoid paying the state taxes, promised he would pay and was NEVER held accountable for lying. But that’s what Kerry does, lie.

      • http://www.inhisdreams.com Pinkflowers

        Orangeone Pinkflowers I do realize that Kerry is a liar and tax cheat.  I was merely making the point that unlike Obama he was on his own boat, not one that we bought so that he could have a vacation.  I find the money that we are spending on vacations for the Obama family shocking.  And, the money is being spent so that he can pretend to be one of the “elite”.  He’s not even authentic in that.

        • Orangeone

          Pinkflowers Orangeone I understand your point and agree with it. In a lot of ways, we likely paid for it.  There was ZERO scrutiny over the selling of the Heinz company by this Administration.  It was ripe for insider trading but looking the other way in exchange for the SOS position is very likely.

She does well from multiple rental real estate and mentioned how her CPA had discussed how her taxes had gone up and some issues with health care coverage. My wife said that’s Obama’s handiwork and right away this woman was totally defensive mode and actually blamed Bush. This is a teflon president.

    And it is why she is an enemy of the elite in both parties and the rest of the PPC.

    • JohnCraven

      This was a wonderful rant from Sarah Palin and dead on the money.
      An even better rant would be for Sarah to run for president either as an Independent or as the candidate of an alternative conservative party – such as AmericanborninCanada’s Constitutional Freedom Party [or Freedom Party for short] and use the symbol of the Constitutional Freedom Party – the Soaring Bald Eagle with the Declaration of Independence under its wing (and I would add “One Nation Under God” overhead)].
      Run, Sarah, Run.

      • amernow

        JohnCravenGlad to hear you support both Sarah and ABiC..Have heard you talk about the Freedom Party since somewhere, but would like to say the name seems mighty watered down when it is just that.  Think the Constitutional Freedom  name is just so powerful, and important since now we know Americans don’t even know what IS the Bill of Rights.  This name could segue well into a solid campaign for the Constitution as well, which is apparently very needed. Will find other post to comment there-would like to know what you think.

        • JohnCraven

          amernow, I think AmericanborninCanada is on to something with the name she came up with – Constitutional Freedom Party.  You are likely right about Freedom Party being a watered down version of that name.

    To us, she is the absolute epitomy  of all we believe in.  To the idiots on the left, she is their worst nightmare.  Not just because she exposes their lies and debunks what they try to run on the American people, but most importantly, as much as they would like her to, she simply will not go away.
    Let us be like Sarah.  Let us simply not go away, until we restore this Republic to it’s former greatness.

      notpilgrims Yep.  The fact that he lied about it is the big deal.  If he can’t be trusted with small stuff . . .

        Bill589 notpilgrims All those folks from Massachusetts seem to have a real problem with telling the truth…JFK, Teddy “Chappaquiddick” Kennedy, Elizabeth “Lieawatha” Warren, and Johnny “Swiftboat” Kerry…it must be that there’s something in the water…

      No, she she most definitely did not “admit” something.  This was a declaration.  Why is it that people keep confusing a declaration with an admission?
       Helpful hint: she posted it openly.

    Here’s a thought.  Why lie if you don’t have to?  So he went to his boat for a brief time. No big deal. If he was on duty for most of the day, so be it.  So why do you have to lie about it?
    It seems these days, that whenever anything of significance happens on the world stage, the very first thing this administration does is lie about it.  This mentality seems to permeate  this President’s administration and our entire government.  
    To quote Obama, the most transparent Presidency in the history of our country.  Really?  You could have fooled me.
    They don’t have all the facts, they’re not sure of their position, so initially they lie about it.   After they have a couple of hundred damage control experts analyze the issue, they issue a statement for the press.
    Is this what you  call a Government?  Really?
    Maybe its just me, but is I were SecState, I would have been on the phone, on the widescreen television, watching every single minute, of what in all proportions, was a world changing event.  The last place I would have been, was on my boat.  A boat that was payed for, by American taxpayers.  Indirectly, of course.
    Politicians in this country right now, live like gods.  They have no intention of fulfilling the promises they made.  Quite frankly, because they don’t have to.  Their  only intention, is to enjoy the power and wealth that you gave them when you voted for them.
    Sadly, that is the only real connection that you have with the people you helped to elect.
    Let me go a little off topic for a moment.  We are a nation that loves our pets.  Do you have dogs?  Most Americans do.   When you take your dogs to an outdoor gathering or a public event, don’t you keep your dogs on a leash?
    Doesn’t the leash tell them how far they can go, before they get yanked back on the right path?
    You know where I am going with this.  The  leash we have on Congress is absolutely worthless, except in election years.  In the interim, they do what they damned well please.  That’s just our Legislative Branch.  Don’t even get me started on the Executive.

      white531 it’s permeating the country where it’s very difficult to trust anyone as a family member, friend, co-worker and just people in general.

  • white531

    I didn’t do it, nobody saw me, you can’t prove anything.  That my friends, is what the Obama Presidency is all about.

    Seems that Ole “Swiftboat Johnny” has a real problem when it comes to truthtelling…especially when it comes to whether he was on the boat…or not. Also seems to me like he came by the nickname “Swiftboat Johnny” fair and square…let’s see, was it a Swiftboat or a Skimmer, or a Yacht…was he on the boat or not…?

    Recently, Allen West made a speech in which he expressed his opposition to Obama’s selection for UN Ambassador since Susan Rice took over as his NSA. He went on to remind his audience of the National Security Team that Obama will now have in place. Read ‘em an weep folks: John Kerry, Chuck Hagel, John Brennan, Susan Rice, and Samantha Power…we are in trouble my friends…

  • poorhardworker

    Lying has been the trademak of Obama since he was “made” in Chicago (and before, if his Columbia Student ID is correct)…trust me I was there.  He also learned that there were NO consequences for his actions ( see Donald Young’s murder and “missing” associates from the “gentlemen’s club” he belonged to)…and that words do not have to match actions.  I think it is about time the United States of America taught him a lesson he will not forget!  We are an honorable nation and he has dishonored us and all who sacrificed before.  We cannot let that stand….

      I’ll add to your thought:  Lying has been the trademark of progressive democrats ever since they scrapped the Declaration of Independence and trashed the Constitution 100 years ago.
      They are subversives out to destroy individual liberty and impose their goal of gov’t control of every aspect of our life.  You have to lie, and pretend you’re genuine Americans in order to conduct their revolution.

    George Orwell wrote of a time when citizens could no longer trust big government, and by wearing down the citizenry through doublespeak and lies a tired country finally retreated to its dark and depressing demise.
    —-
    We are already there. Never ending “wars”; constant surveillance; being arrested for speech; erosion and confusion of social structures, gender identities and family roles. We are also becoming a nation of part-time workers almost like serfs with an upper echelon untouched by the worsening economic conditions that are obscured by Fed printing and monetary debasement. Thae bigger point of 1984, though, is the education of the people to love the State and everything it does. Even when it lies we are being trained to accept it and love it as necessary.

    Once again, Gov. Palin is one of very few willing to speak up and make obama accountable.  No wonder we have such an incompetent congress in both parties.

    • 07gibsonlp

      wodiej She may speak but do you really think it matters?  She’s another talking head, like Hannity, Rush, Levin and all the rest. They are INSIGNIFICANT and have NO voice in the big picture. They are out there giving brain-dead conservatives the impression that they can make a difference but they can’t.  What they say has NO BEARING on policy, legislation or anything else. 
      People sit around and cheerlead for these “conservative spokespeople” but they have no power or influence. NONE. The administration, democrat or republican, just laughs because it’s a big distraction and is of no consequence.
      BTW, I am a true conservative, I’m just not brainwashed into thinking these so-called “icons” have any affect; they don’t.

    It’s really mind-boggling given the poor state of health that John Kerry’s wife, Theresa, is now and has been in for some time, that they (Kerry and the SD minions, tacky Psaki) felt the need to lie about the fact that they were taking a break on their yacht in Nantucket. If I knew that my wife’s health was that fragile, I would have no problem whatsoever admitting that we were taking time to rest and celebrate, that’s right, celebrate America’s Independence Day…even if he wasn’t…
