Sarah Palin obliterates Obama on Syria: “President Obama’s advertised war plan isn’t about protecting civilians”

This is Sarah Palin at her best, taking Obama’s plan to bomb Syria apart piece by piece and obliterating it:

“So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” – Sarah Palin

* President Obama wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda affiliated rebels. But he’s not quite sure which side is doing what, what the ultimate end game is, or even whose side we should be on. Haven’t we learned? WAGs don’t work in war.

* We didn’t intervene when over 100,000 Syrians were tragically slaughtered by various means, but we’ll now intervene to avenge the tragic deaths of over 1,000 Syrians killed by chemical weapons, though according to the White House we’re not actually planning to take out the chemical weapons because doing so would require “too much of a commitment.”

* President Obama wants to do what, exactly? Punish evil acts in the form of a telegraphed air strike on Syria to serve as a deterrent? If our invasion of Iraq wasn’t enough of a deterrent to stop evil men from using chemical weapons on their own people, why do we think this will be?

* The world sympathizes with the plight of civilians tragically caught in the crossfire of this internal conflict. But President Obama’s advertised war plan (which has given Assad enough of a heads-up that he’s reportedly already placing human shields at targeted sites) isn’t about protecting civilians, and it’s not been explained how lobbing U.S. missiles at Syria will help Syrian civilians. Do we really think our actions help either side or stop them from hurting more civilians?

* We have no clear mission in Syria. There’s no explanation of what vital American interests are at stake there today amidst yet another centuries-old internal struggle between violent radical Islamists and a murderous dictatorial regime, and we have no business getting involved anywhere without one. And where’s the legal consent of the people’s representatives? Our allies in Britain have already spoken. They just said no. The American people overwhelmingly agree, and the wisdom of the people must be heeded.

* Our Nobel Peace Prize winning President needs to seek Congressional approval before taking us to war. It’s nonsense to argue that, “Well, Bush did it.” Bull. President Bush received support from both Congress and a coalition of our allies for “his wars,” ironically the same wars Obama says he vehemently opposed because of lack of proof of America’s vital interests being at stake.

* Bottom line is that this is about President Obama saving political face because of his “red line” promise regarding chemical weapons.

* As I said before, if we are dangerously uncertain of the outcome and are led into war by a Commander-in-chief who can’t recognize that this conflict is pitting Islamic extremists against an authoritarian regime with both sides shouting “Allah Akbar” at each other, then let Allah sort it out.

    Thanks John.  I seldom have the opportunity to listen to Rush, so I didn’t know of his sarcastic references.  
    In reality, had he not enjoyed political connections, he should have been court-martialed for his contact with the enemy in Paris.

  2. USMC 64-68, whenever Rush Limbaugh refers to John Kerry Heinz, he’ll usually say something like “John – who served in Vietnam – Kerry” or John Kerry – “who by the way served in Vietnam” as a way of disparaging Kerry for his habit of touting his sojourn in Vietnam where he was awarded something like 10 Purple Hearts and never once was wounded. 
    That’s the context in which I say: John Kerry – who by the war, served in Vietnam.  Of course, he was and remains a traitor to all that our founding fathers believed in and all who sacrificed everything for our nation.

    Democrats are heroes to communists.  
    The feeling are reciprocal.

  6. Barack Obama’s skankiness in this Syrian mess is the coolest thing I’ve
    seen in… Wow, must be two weeks now. It’s danged near as cool as Miley Cyrus sticking
    her tongue out of the corner of her mouth (no doubt a parody of a lewd idiot
    post-teenage coke bunny being lewd and idiotic) and giving us the foam crotch
    finger. How do I say this nicely?
    Stay OUT of freaking Syria— …Full Caf Americano

  8. wodiej 12grace jrenai67 There are millions of people waiting to adopt. Adults that are abusive to kids need to be killed not the kids. If you don’t have a happy life then stop being a lefty.

  9. Obama was busy calling Senators on Sunday and he’s back in the White House on a holiday.
    It’s amazing how fast this guy can move when his Alligator mouth overrides his Turtle A$$, isn’t it.

    “I like that guy’s spirit”
    One day he was talking on his show about the idiots in our local government. 
    On a road just outside of town, they erected a sign (at taxpayer’s expense), that said “Scrub Jay Crossing” (A Scrub Jay is a friggin bird, perfectly capable of flight).

    One late night, we went out and painted a white crosswalk on the road, to help them out. Got to do our part to protect endangered species, right? 
    Of course, we never admitted to it.  😉 😉

  11. It’s more cynical than that.
    If the GOP doesn’t authorize, he blames them when Iran gets a nuke or WMDs are used again.
    If they do, when his blundering heads south, he can say “the GOP was on board with it.”

  12. wodiej standbesideherUSA  
    Good point, Wodiej.  My apologies to Toto. (but Obama is a …a hot dawg, where I come from)  🙂

    Before he became a big time politician, ….. There was a picture of him in the War Museum in Hanoi.

     “And we know he would never oppose PP!”
    Of course not, that’s where the money is. 😉 😉

  15. JohnCraven “Served in Vietnam”  Kerry has a different understanding of that action than I do.
    I see him as a traitor!

     “I salute any who wear any of our service uniforms.  (of course one is the best looking)”
    The Air Force one, right? 😉 😉
    It was a going away party for my best friend. He’s going to become a ‘snow bird’ living in NY for half the year and down here in Florida for the other half. He’s as crazy as I am. He had the highest rated talk show on local radio down here for 20- years. The station changed owners and the new management told him he had to ‘tone down’ his show a bit. They told him he couldn’t start his show anymore with Mexican music and yell “Go Home Pedro” over it anymore. It was his last day on the air, he quit.
    I used to help write some of the stuff for his show. 😉 😉

  17. So Obama bypasses Congress with everything and acts like they are irrelevant.
    NOW, he wants Congress’ approval to help cover his screw up and salvage a corner of his Presidential man card.
    Why ? One reason only. He wants political cover when his flailing, incompetent “strategy” continues to blow up in his face.
    Do not give it to him.

    That I know, I was referring to her visibility/awareness on a national scale.
    The majority of people responded to McCain’s announcement that she would be his VP by saying “Sarah who?”

  19. famouswolf Very well said! Sarah Palin has been the victim of an intentional and highly sophisticated campaign of slander from America’s morally bankrupt cultural elite. She is a threat to the wasteful, and arrogant “ole boys network” in DC. But she stands for all the values of “the common person”, and the moral values which made America the greatest and most powerful nation the world has ever known.

  20. wodiej 12grace jrenai67  
    No soul?  What an amazing statement to make on the basis of nothing more than ideology.  That ideology reveals a dangerous world and life view – it cheapens humanity.
    That cheap view of humanity is reinforced by all that follows – not only devaluing life on the basis of what’s in their belly, etc.
    That view also elevates man to the place of God – deciding who is to be “allowed” to live.  That’s pretty arrogant.
    And the final statement (question/challenge) has nothing to do with the issue other than a bit of emotional demagoguery to support a position that doesn’t have any facts/truth to support it – just a cheap view of life and a hypocritically elevated view of man’s authority.

  21. tinlizzieowner Gay Nell Harper Marcus3127  Fat chance is right! He would have to oppose the socialist policies of those who “manage” the big cities. He would also have to stop his unwavering support for Planned Parenthood, which targets the ghettos and inner cities, resulting in the killing of a far higher per cent of black babies than those of other races. And we know he would never oppose PP!

  22. wodiej 12grace jrenai67  Many years ago, (when Roe vs Wade was in court), women who abort could be forgiven for not knowing when human life began. The “scientific” and academic world was disseminating the so-called “Recapitulation Theory of Human Embryonic Development”. In short, that “theory” (which has since been thoroughly debunked and exposed as fraudulent science) taught that the unborn child went through all the stages of evolution before becoming fully human. Therefore it was anyone’s guess when it became a “human being’. But we no longer have that excuse. With DNA, ultra sound, and other accurate scientific means, medical science leaves us with no doubt. Human life begins at conception.

  23. wodiej 12grace jrenai67  When you talk about a “soul”, you are delving into the spiritual/religious arena. How can you be so sure that a fertilized egg does not have a soul? What is your authority to make that statement? I would respectfully — and strongly — disagree with it. Certainly from a Christian perspective, based on the first chapter of Luke, we can see that a “fertilized egg” is indeed a very real human being; in this case Jesus the Messiah himself, who is only a few days or weeks gestation in the womb of Mary, being “greeted” by another very real human being, (John the Baptist), in the womb of his aunt, Elizabeth.

  24. 12grace jrenai67 children have a right to be born into a loving, stable, healthy home.  You have a right to your opinion but personally speaking as many others would agree, a fertilized egg does not have a soul.  I don’t advocate late term abortions.  fyi
    There are millions of kids in the world who are homeless, hungry, abused, lacking the love, guidance, nurturing and care that they need. How many who scream about their right to be born into this kind of situation are there to help them? Not very many or none of these kids would be lacking the needs to have a happy life.  
    By the way, how many of these poor kids and their mom’s have you helped with food, clothing, medical care, or just being emotionally supportive?

  25. “What in the world has happened to us?” Phil Robertson
    jrenai67 – I have to admit I understand your post, but I believe God has put us on this earth for a greater purpose. To murder an innocent unborn child? No, I don’t believe that has a place in God’s plans. That’s just evil at work.

  26. JohnCraven
    Aka: SP’s enemies with an ‘R’.
    I believe the Big Whigs in the GOP and their ‘faces’ like Rove are half of our corrupt government. 
    In the war of DC vs. The People – the GOPe are DC.

  27. And, Bill589, there are those who think this would not be considered presidential thinking – like Karl Rove and all of the Bushes and their flacks and the entire leadership? of the Big Whigs in the GOP.
    John Craven – New Orleans

  28. Or send in the drones like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to really screw things up.  Oh wait! Tthey have John Kerry for that, who, by the way, served in Vietnam.

  29. Some seem to think Tina Fey is the real Sarah Palin. They can’t seem to differentiate between TV fantasy and reality.
    Lot of fried eggs for brains out there these days. All you have to do to know Palin is no idiot is listen to any one of her speeches.

  30. Which is exactly what I expected. Why bother?
    I only let the ‘pussy cat’ know what to expect with posts like that…pretty much nothing.

  31. tinlizzieowner USMC 64-68 deTocqueville1 jwbandit27  
    Now in your statement there’s room for a lot of jokes, but I’ll demure.
    I hope you had a good time.  I just went to a 3-day get together w/ Marines, and we let a G.I. hang out with us.  
    As for me, on a serious note – I salute any who wear any of our service uniforms.  (of course one is the best looking)

  32. WaterFaster2012 Well,
    Palin has been a public figure for 6 years now – she’s made many
    speeches, participated in many forums, etc.  Since you feel that she is
    mostly a blithering idiot I’m wondering if you could cite some
    examples.  Ocurrences of blithering idiocy should be pretty memorable.

    ……Crack me up!

    I have to agree. He beginning to look more like Nancy Pelosi every day, isn’t he. 😉 😉

  38. famouswolf 
     I think I’ll leave it to you folks to comment on the remarks of this ‘Pussy’ (cat) 😉 😉

  39. deTocqueville1 jwbandit27  
    “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli”.
    Yes folks, there was a time when the Marines could kick A$$ on Muslims (and Mexicans, too). 😉 😉

  40. Gay Nell Harper Marcus3127  
    Maybe Obama could send troops into the inner city ghettos ‘to save women and babies’ here, instead of other countries, right? 😉 😉
    (Fat chance of that, huh).

  41. jwbandit27 Yes the barbary Pirates were Musims who for many years served the Turkish Caliphate. Great point.

  42. So, you are a clock? When are you going to be right?
    Not only are you wrong about Palin, I doubt you are right once a day, much less twice.
    No one will take you seriously after such a clumsy, pointless debut.

  43. ….I’ve been listening to Kerry all morning, talking constantly over the Sunday talk show hosts, not letting them get a word in edgewise,  saying that  ”America is much stronger when Congress and the president work together”, (or some nonsense like that, over and over and over ad nauseum…) 

    Really?  Since when has anything been accomplished, for the good of the people, when Congress has gone along with the lunatics in the WH?
    If there’s even one thing, please tell me.  I’ve forgotten, I guess….
    Has Kerry had a facelift?  I’m thinking that he had the same plastic surgeon as Lurch, (ya know, from the Addam’s Family) …

  44. jimtrees1234 standbesideherUSA  
    Uhhh, Jim, I think you spelled his name incorrectly…it’s spelled y-e-s-m-r-p-r-e-s-i-d-e-n-t…..

  45. jrenai67   I assume you wish you were not born?  Personally I feel every one who is born has a purpose for being on this earth?  Hopefully I can make this world a better place for future generations.  I am so thankful my mother did not kill me before I was born!!   What a Blessing she was to me and  many others

  46. standbesideherUSA Well if Congress votes no and Obama goes against Congress, I would love to see the left support him by then… cus that’s grounds for impeachment!

  47. standbesideherUSA 
    We have elected a president with no brains!!  Has no clue as to morals, Liberty,  Freedom and Christian rights we have as Americans.   He is living his dad’s dream, who was a socialist from Africa?  His dad left he and his mother and went back to Africa!  His mother  remarried a second time to another muslim.   I have to believe, his mother was a muslim as well, since she married two different muslimsl! At the age of 12, his mother sent obama back to hawaii to live with his grandparents  His grandfather found him a mentor, I assume at the request of his mother!   His grandfather did find a muslin for obama’s mentor.  If you are raised all your life as a muslim, there has been a great influence on your life?   Look how he trying to rule our nation, just like other muslim leaders? Watch the movie, obama 2012!! This will help Americans understand and why we have to get him out of office

  48. standbesideherUSA It would be nice if the vote in congress was a dead heat, and it was up to Boner to make the call. Which way would he go? Not enough tissue in the world to clean up those tears.

  49. I love how Kerry says, “Ahhh-saad.”  Just kidding.  I don’t like anything he says…never have.

  50. Is it just me, or, is Obama, just for the fun of it, having the Republican Congress ‘walk’ the RED
    LINE that HE, himself imposed, (OFF teleprompter by the way).
    I’m guessing that Obama’s thinking he’ll need some company in the ‘blame game’ inevitably to come.
    Sorry…once again, stating the obvious.

  51. Most people do NOT care that muslims are killing each other in Syria and other places. It’s their way of life and it’s culture and as we know from out liberal betters … “all cultures are equal” so we have no business interfering with an equal and sovereign culture … now do we.
    Sarah has it right. Obama is an idiot with and ego that is sinking America. He has to go.

  52. WaterFaster2012  Can you intelligently point to any position she has taken that you disagree with? Sounds like you have a bad case of MSMitis. Or LSMitis as she would say. But at least you are man enough to agree with her on this position. Thanks.

  53. jrenai67 
    By your logic all believers ought to kill themselves – why postpone heaven?
    The answer to that question lies in the gift of life.

  54. standbesideherUSA  
    Well-said.  Not only is it Wizard of Oz, it’s a little Alice in Wonderland also.
    This isn’t the America I grew up in, and served.

  55. jrenai67 
    Your comment is brutal.

    Have you ever seen an abortion? Do you realize that this little beings are in horrendous pain and they suffer greatly in the abortion process?. They are not little slabs of apperceptive mass.

     How would you like it, if someone decided YOU were better off going to G-d now instead of later ( assuming that’s where you would go).  It is presumptuous and blasphemy that  individuals think THEY have the right to decide life or death of G-d’s precious creation.

  56. I am sickened by what I see happening to innocent children in Syria.
    According to Kerry, Obama is taking the “unbelievably courageous step to go after Syria and to go to Congress about it”   COURAGEOUS?  
    MAY I state the OBVIOUS?

    WE are living in the LAND of OZ, my friends,  and OBAMA is playing ALL of the characters:
    …The SCARECROW (or straw man), with NO BRAIN…”I’ve been to 57 states and I think I have 1 or 2 more to go.” (unbelievable..truly unbelievable….)

    …The COWARDLY LION,  with NO COURAGE to even talk to a kindergarten class WITHOUT a TELEPROMPTER!. 

    …The TIN MAN, with NO HEART for the AMERICAN People and THEIR rights and THEIR suffering as evidenced by his ignoring of the United Stated Constitution, which he swore to uphold, affording each of us equal protection under the law (from obamacare, for example)…. 
    …DOROTHY, who said, ”There’s no place like the GOLF COURSE.”  (poetic license)  🙂
    …The bicycle-riding WICKED WITCH of the NORTH, (riding a “girlie” bike on one of his MANY and EXPENSIVE vacations…

    …The WIZARD of OZ, who perpetrated a fraud upon the Munchkins, until the curtain was pulled back, exposing him for what he was.
    …TOTO…..well, he was just a DOG…
    …Well,  MUNCHKINS….What are we going to do now? Are we REALLY ever going to vote another lying, lilly-livered, limp, lover of  AMERICAN oppression, liberal into office again?  
    We”d best  use OUR BRAINS, OUR COURAGE, and OUR HEARTS in 2014 to bring AMERICA back from the Land of Oz to reality and sanity, once again….

  57. Those babies are better off home with god then to live in the earth that we live in or to be born to a mother that isn’t worthy.  If you truly believe in god then when should it matter the time that one goes back to god.  One minute one year, five years or 100 years

  58. ajtelles  
    You are smart. Many of these people blindly vote and they have no idea what their candidates even stand for, etc.

  59. Gay Nell Harper
    Just because the babies can’t talk doesn’t mean they don’t feel.

    I don’t think people understand the horrendous pain and suffering they are causing the innocent babies in the brutal murderers of abortion.

  60. Tina Fay and Katie Couric you are both the real idiots of our time.  I guess neither one of you exposed anything but what fools you both are…

  61. As stated previously, be on the look out for the Syria distraction that obama will use to give the unions subsidies for obamacare that r intended for the uninsured.
    I want to learn about options to stop this lawlessness with the bill changes – I usually hear about the issues but I never hear what can be done in Congress, in the Courts or in any other venue?

  62. WaterFaster2012 Obama is  a uninformed attention-whoring blittering idiot.  There is fixed it for you.

  63. Marcus3127 
    I am not talking about Sarah Palin!!   My message is, America is murdering thousands and thousands of babies by calling it Abortion!!  Women are using this terrible procedure for birth control!!   They do not have to keep these babies because there are millions of Americans who are trying to adopt these precious gifts!  We all make bad choices in life, but we have to deal with it!   If these murderers would use birth control this would not be so rampant?  I understand there is rape, but they can give the baby away after it is born!!  We all have terrible things happen to us in this imperfect world

  64. Wow. Cant help but love her. When she speaks.. the women on the left get exposed as haters living the liberal lie. They simply boil with anger. Its a good thing she never became vp…bc that would mean a president mccain and the end of the republican party. We are in a fight for our party’s soul while progressives like boehner, mccain, and sweet lindsay graham try and destroy us from within. Make no mistake about it… at a time when you dont know who the good guys are in your party and who the the undercover democrats and republican progressives are, Palin is someone who we cant trust

  65. TimothyJacques “Millions for defense – of the MB – but not one missile for revenge for Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty and American Ambassador Stevens.”

  66. I used to think I could wield words well. Wow. Bravo, Governor Palin. Once again the Left will be shrieking at you full volume. That should send you to sleep at night with a Supersized smile on your face. And BTW, thank you.

  67. Who’s the idiot…
    Who’s wagging…
    – – – – – – – – – –
    I have a friend who does NOT like Sarah Palin, due to the shallow stream media that produces more noxious effluvia than it produces potable drinking water, so to speak, to maintain the metaphor.
    Instead of asking him to read Sarah Palin’s awesome analysis of I-I-I-OCCUPY-America–in-Chief Obama’s shallow thinker ‘yes-we-can’ get our butts kicked in Syria silliness, I will read her post to him in small doses.
    That always works.
    Now he’s listening to Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, AND, he’s even letting me read portions of Mark’s book The Liberty Amendments to him as the news deals with subjects that are also in the book, such as the SCOTUS ignoring the original intent of the Commerce clause.
    – – – – – – – – – –

    Say it Sarah, say it.
    “WAGS don’t work in war.”
    That’s another Sarah Saying to add to ‘death panels’ and etc.


  68. subie201 if you want a pre curser to the events are coming read The book of Judges in the Bible starting in chapter 4 verese 12-24 remeber the names Oreb and Zeeb and What are those Other two names

  69. not sure  Your prediction is right about natural gas. As a Professional Driver . They amount of money that is being spent on infrastructure is astounding. Guess who ranks among the top companies being out fitted for h/g is Walmart many trucking companies are taking steps to change. but that is what thee leading trucking company is reported as reporting

  70. EastBayLarry Rshill7 Yep, East Bay its catch 22.  If they say no its the Republicans fault,  if they say yes He takes the credit for sucess, if it turns out bad he blames Congress for using poor information to proceed.

  71. JohnCraven  I agree, Mr. Craven. Well said.
    I have always believed that Gov. Palin’s experience as a public executive makes her well-suited for the presidency.
    Her “cut-to-the-marrow” and no bovine excrement approach is very typical of a first-class executive.
    By no means should she run for senator. It would bury her in a mound of steaming you-know-what.

  72. John Craven
    You are so right! We got Obama because the nation couldn’t stand Bush! Another RINO Bush in office….heaven forbid! Americans would have to move to Canada!

  73. not sure Be sure that, of course, we have more oil then all those countries combined and drilling/fracking would give us plenty of jobs and would stop the flow of dollars into the hands of terrorists…
    but it would look “bad” on the horizon from a liberal house so we will NOT.
    Suicidal idiocy of the left has no limits.

  74. We are the future. There is only today for this regime.The Real USA of the people start now. Not Waliking in fear of the Current oligarchy. They have the machine of big political bosses and  the tyranny of thier unholy whoredoms.  We must take this nation back. The voters vote was stolen last election  right out of our hands. When Gods people mount upon the shoulders of Christ. He will be our Victor. A detailed study of Psalm 83 will reveal the Work of the Lord. The Old testament does not only bring  Gods hand for yesterday-only. It brings us Victory for our tomorrow and our days to come.

  75. Gay Nell Harper:…. “Children are murdered by the thousands everyday in America”…And if a baby survive the abortion, meaning – is STILL alive, it has to “finished off”.
    Guess who voted for it?
    Yep, you did not guessed it…..You KNOW it.

  76. Why would the president of America want to go to war because Syria killed their children!!  Children are murdered by the thousands everyday in America.  These murders are paid for by Tax Dollars?   These murders are called Abortions!! Some of these babies are killed by chemicals inserted in the womb and others have their backs broken?   Others have their necks broken and and parts of their bodies torn apart.  I don’t know what politicians call it, but I call it murder?   There have been many, many women who have died after having an Aborations from infections or bleed to death. We need to get our own house in order before we start another useless war.   Muslims have been fighting each other for hundreds of years. We do not need anymore of our men and women killed so a president who has been threatening for years about the red line?   obama is trying to take the focus off of all the crap he has done and is doing!!  Look who is calling the kettle black.

  77. The huge assumption is that a member of the Republican Party will be the next president or a president at any time in the next millenia.
    The rank and file in the GOP went along with how many candidates who were sure fired winners – Dole, McShame, Romney – and now you say we need to go along with another Sure-fired winner like Jeb Bush?
    You’ve lost your base.  You have no support for anyone in the GOP for anyone other than Palin or Cruz or the like.  ABSOLUTELY NONE.
    What do the registrar rolls say?  How many members of the GOP are changing party affiliation to NONE OF THE ABOVE or Independent?
    To assume that Palin will or can only serve as an Interior secretary requires a republican president and that is a terrible assumption to make.

We do not need an excuse to punish Syria, for kiiling children!   America kills millions of children by Aboration each year!!  The sad thing, anyone who pays taxes are supporting this terrible crime against our children!!  How can a president and others say what a terrible crime these muslims are doing when they willfully, kill their own children!!  What do these polticians call what is happening here?  I call it murder!!  We need to get own own nationa in order?    Look who is calling the kettle black?

    “Care to guess which person they supported for potus?”
    The same people who put Al Franken in the Senate, no doubt.
    😉 😉

  80. Keyes yazz55 And his BFF in Turkey is now asking for protection!  This is nothing but a ploy to permit Syria and others to attack Israel.

  81. DocBarry1 Barry has already spoken with Boehner and McConnell, of course they will shove through whatever Barry wants.

  82. MelMiddleton Good idea.  Only problem is that it will have to also apply to the US.  The “DREAMER Kids” are murdering and raping Americans and that is WAY across the red line IMO.

  83. tinlizzieowner SilentTexan So this is funny.  There are protestors in MN protesting against a war in Syria. Care to guess which person they supported for potus? This could get very funny if it takes off nationally.

  84. SilentTexan tinlizzieowner And here I thought he was bashing his brains every time he planted his arse on the empty chair :}

  85. SilentTexan tinlizzieowner 
    The final history of the Obama tenure as President, is going to be a bitter pill for libs to swallow. 😉

  86. JohnCraven You are making a HUGE assumption and that’s that she can get elected.  I do not believe she can. We need someone who can win and who can then appoint her to a valued position.

  87. Can you imagine her on the Senate floor saying this? I can! Can you imagine her staying in the WH situation room when she has ordered a military command instead of heading to the golf course or playing cards? I can.
    YES I CAN!!!!!!

  88. EastBayLarry Rshill7 
    I don’t think the public will believe if he does as 91% of Americans are against us getting involved.

  89. jwbandit27 
    There are all kinds of muslim charities….the money goes to jihad. The Holy Land Foundation comes to mind.

  90. Couldn’t disagree with you more.  As president Sarah Palin could appoint many fine Americans to fill the vacancies of all the Nero Obama commissars who’ve taken over our nation and undo as much as possible of the damage Nero Obama has done with the complicit help and treasonous activities of the Big Whigs in the GOP who just want to keep the money flowing into their very deep pockets.
    Sarah Palin would make a great president provided of course she stops her own dithering about the subject.  Ted Cruz too.
    A rodeo clown with or without a mask would be a greater president than what we have now.

  91. AdinaF  THANK GOODNESS someone else has posted a link to this (in my humble opinion) MOST EXCELLENT source for TRUTH ! ! !  About this time last year, I found Ms. Kutnicki`s site, and have Thanked the Good Lord ever since. Around Christmas, I sent her an email thanking her for her efforts. I also told her how our domestic news tends to be filled with filtered facts these days. She responded in short order. Peace be With You

  92. not sure  
    I hear you, count them together, it all root from same snake. It’s a bottomless bit, Potus know, the world know,  that’s why we lover of freedom,God and America watches the other hand.

    You’re right and a mighty good looking pilot he was…, I’m just sayin’ 😉

  94. jwbandit27  
    well, at the time, they were on training to be good pirates.
    jwbandit2, you’re on a roll today ! nice,love it !

  95. Wonderful Sarah at one of her presidential (to be) moment. Yes ,she’s way ahead ahead of her time.
    For the potus-has -been(but still occupy the office) even if you have a hundred years to lead, you’ll never, you are never made be a leader. Vacation,golf, lead from behind, puff pots, you the best. 
    Potus & current admin, it’s not a bad move to take lesson from a Real Lady Leader. 
    Thanks Palin for voicing my thoughts and wishes.

  96. WaterFaster2012 BetseyRoss Y’know, those leftists on those leftist sites insult each other and name-call as a means of expression, and when they visit among the civilized, they do the same thing.  It’s difficult to get any meaningful thought out of them, so I do have to credit WaterFaster with expressing agreement with Sarah Palin among the rest of the insults.

     the “rich heritage” Muslims have here in America …
    Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims.
    And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at
    Fort Hood by a Muslim major, is a doctor and a psychiatrist , who was
    supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America.
    P.S. Now, also adding to the Boston Marathon bombings and the London killing
    and be-heading of a soldier on the street in London !!!

    Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era? Again, not
    present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in
    the Islamic culture —so much so, that often they are beaten for not
    wearing the ‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family
    member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t
    Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler.
    The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops
    and accepted support from the Nazi’s in killing Jews.
     where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren’t
    flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field in
    Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were
    rejoicing in the Middle East .
    No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world
    celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day.
    Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses  bent over backwards
    to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To
    many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

    those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
    Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution?
    Declaration of Independence ? Bill of Rights? Didn’t think so.
    Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England ? No.
    Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ? No,
    they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers
    in human slavery.         half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates
    slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black
    Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.”  
    Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present.
    There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with
    Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

  101. God bless Sarah Palin for her common sense and wisdom.  Too bad more people didn’t pay attention to her nomination speech back in 2008.  She nailed Obama to the wall and told America exactly who he was and what was likely to happen if he became President.  The pathetic dolts just couldn’t wait to trash her and her family for no reason except that she states the truth.   They call the Right  judgemental.  Darn riight we are.  If you aren’t paying attention and don’t make these judgements your life starts to sipiral out of control.  That’s what we have now and no one on the Left can seem to figure it out.

  102. It’s not about the chemical weapons……it’s about the natural gas pipelines that will supply Europe. Russia has one in place and Qatar wants one to compete with them. Syria is the key country in the path for a land based pipeline. It’s about money and energy. Just like Afghanistan and Iraq and Libya. Saudis and Qataris are the biggest sponsor of the rebel forces in Syria. It’s time to eliminate Saudi Arabia. The biggest bunch of snakes the world has ever had to deal with. Oh, and Syria has an independent central bank that’s not tied to the BIS/Rothschild/Federal Reserve/ECB banking cartel. Can’t have that, either.

  103. Sarah Palin is usually a uninformed attention-whoring blittering idiot, but for once I have to agree with her on this one. I guess a broken clock is right twice a day so….

  104. Rshill7 Of course after Congress blocks him, (presuming they do), then what ever bad happens in Syria he will say is the result of Republican obstructionism.
    He, and the MemeStream Media, will turn every situation into a chance to advance his agenda.

  105. tinlizzieowner you know, I hate to tell you this, but “elective dysfunction” is an incurable disease, just second to liberalism. The only thing for him now is a trip to the asylum and just throw away the key. And honestly, I’d put him in an UN-padded room. It will do him good to bash his brains against the wall 😉

  106. Obama speaks. Valerie Jarrett has told him he should take a look at the poll numbers and should at least act like a Brit and pretend like he cares about ‘the will of the people’.
    You know, I wish there was a pill for ‘elective dysfunction’. 😉

  107. Obama just said he will seek authorization from Congress before making any attacks on Syria. I’m pleasantly surprised by that. Will he get that authorization? Probably not. Republicans and Democrats will vote “nay” just as the Parliament in the UK did.
    So, Congress, make like a bunch of horsies and vote Neigh.

  108. azgirl9000 
    Not true. He said he wanted to fundamentally transform America and that is what he’s doing.

  109. freeperjim wodiej 
    How is he a Constitutional Conservative? He would be ignoring the NBC if he ran.

  110. wodiej 
    I do believe she was going to jump in the race. I believe that is why she was doing that bus tour and getting all that free publicity of the idiot press following her. Than Bachmann jumped in and rose to the top and Sarah abruptly ended her tour.
    I wish Bachmann would have talked to Sarah and asked if she was thinking of running before she jumped in.

  111. unseen colliemum 
    Let’s not forget the muslims were aligned with Hitler during WWII. Hitler put the Grand Mufti up in an apt. in Germany during the war and he oversaw the SS gang of muslims on the Western front.

  112. yazz55 
    I believe he KNOWS it was the al Qaeda “rebels”. It wouldn’t surprise me if he helped in the attack.

  113. If the lightbulb hasn’t yet gone on for those so-called Republicans who fell for the Palin hate hooke, line and sinker after seeing how easily the media can demonize their target (Paula Deen, anyone?), it never will.

  114. Wisdom from the heartland.  Sarah is like the Sergeants who win the wars. The Generals get the glory, but the bedrock heart of the troops is led by Sergeants.
    She has her stuff together and nails it most every time. This is why she resonates with common folks. And it is why she ruffles the stuffed shirts and  blowhards of the talking head societies.
    Would be perfect for President Cruz’s Secretary of State. She’d let the world know USA is #1! 
    She speaks the most important language—straight talk! No B.S.

  115. She nailed it….and people think she would be “unelectable” in 2016 because of how she was attacked in 2008.
    Remember, in 2008 she was at the bottom of the ticket and she was muzzled by McCain’s staff. At the top of the ticket she would be free to speak her mind… this.

  116. Seabee tinlizzieowner RedDaveR 
    We are still in Afghanistan 5 years after Obama took office, yet there has not been ONE decent sized anti-war protest. Selective ‘war’ outrage? 😉 😉

  117. Here’s a simple suggestion that might go a long way to enabling Obama to both save face and actually do something constructive in response to the WMD use.  Propose immediate legislation to Congress to put in place a policy of capital market sanctions when “red lines” are crossed! This would include the use of WMDs, or when other crimes against humanity, genocide, or serious war crimes are committed by any party……government or rebel faction. This way, any corporation….whether privately owned or state owned….which was in a business partnership with the guilty party  would be immediately de-listed from the New York (and all other) stock exchanges. No babies would be bombed; no “collateral damage”; no refugees created; no destruction of valuable infrastructure…..and it would all be 100% legal. The only ones who would suffer would be the fat cat CEO’s and wealthy shareholders of these miscreant corporations.

  118. Orangeone badbadlibs mrterry50 Actually, he was a pilot in the Texas Air National Guard.  Just sayin.’

  119. sallyjohanna Even Zero’s pride is inconsequential to him when it comes to advancing the MB and the new Caliphate.  The Manchurian Marionette dances for his handlers: Saudi Arabia.

  120. badbadlibs Orangeone mrterry50 Yes he at least went to the UN and Congress. And you are correct, his ROE hampered things. That’s what happens when CIC has not served!

  121. wodiej Mark Levin has exasperatedly explained that Cruz’s American citizenship is not in doubt.  That’s good enough for me.
    If and until Sarah decides to run, Ted Cruz is the best alternative.

  122. Amjean it’s not difficult to follow.  this is what they mean by the NEW WORLD order.  It’s what Bush the first  meant,  it’s what  Clinton meant, it’s what Bush the second meant, it’s what  Biden and Obama meant.

  123. Amjean I have no doubt he and his Leftist friends wouldn’t mind the MB taking over our govt.  They’re already filthy in the WH, Pentagon and State Dept.

  124. DocBarry1 First you’ii have to grt him out of the 19th hole and sober him up. Then fully explain whats going on to him. From there it is doubtful that would comprehend anything that was laid out in front of him.

  125. colliemum from the economy to the  military actions to the political by-play across the globe this period is starting to look so much like the 1930’s it isn’t funny.  
    We have the GOP  return  to the  New deal republicians,  we have a POTUS  who thinks of himself  like FDR a  dictator in all but name.  We have a  ecomny  getting ready for a double  dip as soon as gas prices hit $4.00/gal again.   The only difference is the Nazis are in the middle east this  time instead of  Germany and we are in massive debt as a country.

  126. yazz55 considering the rebels are  aligned with those who killed 3000+ innocent  civilians in NYC on 9/11 I’m going with the rebels  launched the gas attack.

  127. DocBarry1 Boehner will not do it because he knows it will be the same result as UK and the Speaker has gone out of his way to not embarrass Obama.   It’s almost like the liberals control the house  still.

  128. wow…..glad we  dodged that bullet in 2008.   I mean Biden is  so much  better………  This country  deserves the leaders it has. Until the people  can grasp  the “smart” people from the idiots  without the MSM filter  then we deserve having idiots in the WH.    Gov Palin would have been  one of the greatest VP’s in modern history   and one of the greatest  Presidents.      History will record 2008  as the moment that the USA jumped the shark.

  129. Boehner has been an impediment re so many issues and he is so weak – but I am hopeful that he will surprise me and others and call into emergency session the House and demand that Obama come to Congress to present his case and ask for a Vote
    this is a democracy – if the UK, France and Germany can debate the possibility of War – why can’t America – Boehner stand up for the House, the Constitution and the American People – Stand up

  130. If only … if only those words were coming out of the lips of the People’s representatives in Congress.

  131. Just proving the point to let Sarah be Sarah, something McCain’s campaign screwed up in 2008. McCain let his advisers, notably Nicole Wallace and Steve Schmidt, to box her in to their small-minded view of RINOism. You only see these back stabbers now on MSNBC; especially Morning Joe the king of the RINOs.

  132. “Common sense” – one of the chief reasons the left despises her.  
    She shines like the sun compared to the dim bulb in the Oval Office.

  133. wodiej StandProudNow  
    It wasn’t that I could not take the time to google it…
    I am well aware of her hiring Peter Schweizer.  It was your assertion that she didn’t run because she didn’t have the support, that I wanted your source on.

    We don’t really know why she decided not  to run.  Your first post made it sound as if it was a fact that she didn’t run due to lack of support when it is just your personal opinion.

  134. wodiej freeperjim 
    With the Constitution & our God given rights under assault and hanging by a thread, we must do anything to save our nation from the marxist-muslim alliance. ANYTHING!
    As I said, it’s VERY, VERY doubtful Sarah is running for President in 2016.
    That’s why I’m supporting Cruz – the only Constitutional Conservative that offers any hope to save America which is PRIORITY #1.
    That said, a Cruz/Palin ticket may be the only vehicle to have Sarah “in the game” and be able to effectuate true change.
    To say you’re not voting for another man is narrow-minded & hate filled sexist bigotry that is unbecoming any God fearing conservative patriot. 
    I suggest you rethink your position and leave your bigotry behind as you’re sounding just like a leftwing homosexual feminazi lezbo.

  135. Sarah at her best, not complicated, common sense. America rising around Sarah Palin / Tea Party .. Silent majority ..

  136. StandProudNow wodiej it’s a FACT that she hired an experienced, well known advisor named Peter Schweizer.  Here is the link since you can’t take the time to google it.  I did not personally speak with Gov. Palin on this particular issue but common sense would dictate there would be no need for her to hire someone like this if she was not considering a run for president. She waited until late summer 2011 before she announced she would not be running.  If she’d had the support, I believe she would have gone for it.

  137. freeperjim wodiej that’s a low standard to set for president-better than obama. I would be better than obama.  I’m not voting for another man for president until we get some sense and put someone like Gov. Palin on the ticket.  If she knew she had the support, I am certain she would go for it and I think it’s her calling.

  138. wodiej 
    As a HUGE Sarah supporter, I must admit it’s highly doubtful she will run in 2016 so we must choose on reality and not wishful thinking.
    However, Ted Cruz does appear to be running and is far more qualified than comrade obamatollah. My hat is in with Cruz – a true, Constitutional Conservative and unafraid to stand up to evil – ala Sarah.
    Definitely no more liberal RINOs – Rubio, Bush (any of them), etc…

  139. wodiej”When Palin’s advisor didn’t see enough support for her she opted out and got behind Newt Gingrich.”
    She opted not to run because her advisor did not see enough support for her??
    What is your source on this?

  140. wodiej  
    Time has run out for the Republican party. We will no longer vote for their Progressives-in-a-Poke. Why bother? They always vote wiht the Democrats. They never stand on principle. Hell they never even bother to fight.

    Time has run out for us too. The 2014 Primaries are crucial. We have to find, fund and hit the streets for true conservatives, Tea Party and libertarian candidates. By the time we get served up the next General Election ballot of Republican incumbents and new Progressive Republicans it will be too late.

  141. Sarah knows!  She knew 5 yrs. ago and she knows even better today that Obama is a fraud.  I’m thrilled she is calling him out and hope she is just getting started.  We Americans need real speak and no more DC speak.

  142. To add my 2 cents worth…
    While its apparently clear that chemical weapons were used.  Its not clear just who is using them.  So, there is no way if the obamessiah is even targeting the correct party.

  143. You all remember the left shouting ‘Bushitler’?
    Well, here’s irony for you: if the POS starts his little punishment bombardment tomorrow, then a very great number of people in Europe will recall the start of WWII.
    Hitler had launched a false-flag incident at the German-Polish border, and then told the German masses: “since 5.45 we are returning fire”.
    Would the POS know that?

  144. Amjean  
    there is indeed. the pattern repeats. globalism. 
    America and our Constitution are their final obstacle.

  145. Glad she joined in the “just say no to war with Syria” crowd, however, it is my opinion that we need to quit tip toeing around Obama’s agenda.  It is not composed only of incompetence, inconsistency, or even weakness.  I believe something much more nefarious is going on with Obama’s thug administration.  That said, Palin is helping sound the “gong” with conservatives that a strike on Syria is seriously wrong.  Many already believe that the “chemical weapon” excuse for going to war may be a “wag the dog” situation.
    I believe that Obama is trying to install the Muslim Brotherhood as the government in the Middle East.  There is something huge going on and it will start coming out soon.  Call it what you will, backed by the bankers, Saudi Arabia, Muslim Brotherhood, the Sunnis, etc., there is a master plan somewhere, a script, if you will, of what the end game is. 
    It is difficult to follow the dots; eventually, however, someone will.

  146. I hope this will be the final straw for getting impeachment rolling – because I am convinced that the POS in the WH will not go before Congress because, in his opinion, it’s not a war, just a few missiles being thrown for a couple of days, in a ‘punishment’ action.
    Consequences? World peace? Nah – the POS has spoken and that’s that.
    Sarah is spot on as usual.

  147. “So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” – Sarah Palin
    SLAAAAAM !!!      LOL  Luv It   !!!
    and his crony henchmen/women, aka Democrats, are not about America first- they
    are all about their political ideological agenda, and in Obama’s case, it’s all
    about installing islamic muslim terrorist groups he likes, like the Muslim
    Brotherhood in control of all Arab States in the Middle East.
    islamist Al-Queda affiliated terrorist groups in Syria, are NOT Freedom
    Fighters (as stated by that leftist Obama McRINO tool idiot McCain). What, why,
    and to whom do you think all those Surface to Air missiles, and other military
    weaponry were secretly transferred from Libya to Syria by the CIA were
    along with his useful idiot McRINO tools have but one goal, and it’s not to
    free the Syrian people of Assad’s tyranny- it’s to replace Assad with a
    pro-Muslim Brotherhood Islamist extremist regime- and as noble as some might
    think that to be, it is not.

  148. And Kerry has always been a big liar. I just wish Sarah could start a strong Conservative Party to flush out the RINO members.

  149. As always, Gov. Sarah Palin is right.  We could have had her as CIC in 2012.  Americans passed.  It’s like the story of the man stranded in a boat. He asks God to save him so 3 times God sent help in the form of rescue teams.  The man passed citing he was waiting on “God” to save him. When he drowned he asked God why didn’t he help him.  God told him “I sent you help 3 different times and you wouldn’t take it.”  
    When Palin’s advisor didn’t see enough support for her she opted out and got behind Newt Gingrich.  But voters still wouldn’t decide on a worthy person to get us out of the hellhole started by Bush and continued by inexperienced and unqualified obama.  
    Conservatives claim the mantle of “holier than thou” but don’t have the guts to pick a good candidate to represent us if their halo isn’t glowing enough or they do not fit their outdated view of what a president should look like (aka suit and tie).  People are slobbering over Ted Cruz who probably isn’t even legally qualified to be president and certainly does not have the courage, insight or experience that Sarah Palin has.  Wake up America.

  150. The Pyromaniac-in-Chief’s war plans are not as they seem, irrespective of Kerry’s emotional posturing. And, if anyone believes he gives a damn about the Syrian victims, go back to sleep. But he does care about the ‘footprints’ of his Brotherhood Mafia, and other matters – 

  151. I like what Mrs Palins saids when she saids WAGs don’t work in war.   Just to add a though in politices neither does waging the dog.   Democrats Party on going crimes at their worse: Remember Bill: (WAG THE DOG):  . Just think of how many Middle Easterns have died during the past 3 years because of democrat party coruption and and coverups.

  152. steveangll77
    JD Olson   Reasons don’t matter?
    And Sarah Palin never abandoned us. Research what’s she’s done since reloading.

  153. The message that is being repeated in various ways from administration voices is that “Obama keeps his word”. What a joke. I’m not sure I can think of an example of a time when he has made a promise he kept.

  154. Sarah is amazing and so right all the time! It’s simple common sense stupid! Obama is going to get us in a conflict we can’t get out of and I am not so sure he isn’t wanting it to happen! I believe he wants the collapse of the USA by whatever means it takes! Just my educated yet humble opinion 😉

  155. Sarah Palin, May 2011
    … I can tell you what I believe that criteria should be in five points.
    First, we should only commit our forces when clear and vital American interests are at stake. Period.
    Second, if we have to fight, we fight to win. To do that, we use overwhelming force. We only send our troops into war with the objective to defeat the enemy as quickly as possible. We do not stretch out our military with open-ended and ill-defined missions. Nation building is a nice idea in theory, but it is not the main purpose of our armed forces. We use our military to win wars.
    Third, we must have clearly defined goals and objectives before sending troops into harm’s way. If you can’t explain the mission to the American people clearly and concisely, then our sons and daughters should not be sent into battle. Period.
    Fourth, American soldiers must never be put under foreign command. We will fight side by side with our allies, but American soldiers must remain under the care and the command of American officers.
    Fifth, sending in our armed forces should be the last resort. We don’t go looking for dragons to slay. However, we will encourage the forces of freedom around the world who are sincerely fighting for the empowerment of the individual. When it makes sense, when it’s appropriate, we will provide them with material support to help them win their own freedom.

  156. I’m betting Oblahma finds some pretext to back down.
    The nice part about that is that it would leave Kerry way out on a limb.

  157. SilmarilTelerin If Obama had any guts he would use a military build up to attack Syria as a ruse to instead destroy the Iranian nuke sites.

  158. If Obama has one functioning brain cell left he will require his poodle-boy Boehner call the House into session to bail him out by voting NO!

  159. Lol…so Obama was going to go it alone without congressional approval?  Now it looks like he will have to beg congress for money to have a war!
     The U.S. military, struggling after defense cuts of tens of billions
    of dollars, will be unable to pay for attacks on Syria from current
    operating funds and must seek additional money from Congress, according
    to congressional aides.
    President Barack Obama, meanwhile, said on Friday he has not made a
    final decision on a military strike against Syria. He sought to play
    down both the scope and duration of the anticipated punitive missile and
    bombing campaign.
     The costs of planned Syria strikes using cruise missile ships
    currently deployed in the Eastern Mediterranean were not disclosed by
    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Adm. James Winnefeld, vice chairman of
    the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and several other high-ranking administration

    However, estimates of the limited-duration strike are expected to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
    “The secretary indicated that the administration would consult with
    Congress on the cost of exercising a potential military option, but
    specific dollar amounts weren’t discussed,” a senior defense official
    when asked about the funding shortfalls.
    Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stated in
    a July 19 letter to the Senate Armed Services Committee, that
    larger-scale military operations would cost hundreds of millions or
    billions, depending on the number of forces and the duration of the
    For example, training and assisting Syrian opposition forces would
    cost $500 million annually and “limited” standoff missile and air
    strikes would cost in the “billions.” Operating a no-fly zone would cost
    about $1 billion per month, and the cost of using special operations
    forces to control chemical weapons would be “over” $1 billion monthly.
    A congressional aide familiar with the congressional leaders’
    briefing said Hagel and Winnefeld made clear the Pentagon would need to
    “work” with Congress to obtain supplemental funding for Syria attacks.
    “Good luck with that,” the aide said, reflecting widespread concern
    among congressional Republicans with the Obama administration’s defense
    The Pentagon leaders said unlike the 2011 military operations against
    Libya, there are not enough operating funds to conduct the attack on

    He went to congress and the UN. He did much better. He would have done a lot better if he would have allowed our military to fight without one hand tied behind their backs. They could have gone in, did the job and left.

  162. If Obama is smart, he will take the side of wisdom and not launch the missile strike. The fact that Great Britain and the U.N. and just about all of our allies are against the idea should be enough for an president with common sense not to go through with it. Mr. President, PLEASE  FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE,  PUT ASIDE YOUR ARROGANCE AND YOUR EGO!

  163. NYGino And sets up America for attacks on our soil so he can declare martial law and appoint himself lifetime dictator. His attempts  at disarming us with his mass shooting failed, the race war attempts failed, the Boston marathon bombing attempt to cause panic failed, so next up is attacks on our soil.

  164. outforbeer Syria gives Boehner cover to fund BoehnerCare and shove through amnesty.  He needs the diversion as much as O does.

    ever since, the brain-dead, oops, I mean the main-stream media have
    been trying to pound Gov. Palin down to where they figure she
    belongs, i.e., back below the glass ceiling.

    see, Gov. Palin has never conformed to the image to which the
    collectivist elites want her to conform. She is an individual, par
    something which the elites want to eliminate because she threatens
    their collectivist utopias.
    Palin is an exception to the elitist rule and a brilliant,
    well-spoken leader with the proper level of humility and toughness,
    very much like Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.

  166. Obama and Kerry press conferences were bizarre….they have to be a first for America.  
    Laying out every plan they have with emphasis on what they are not going to do???  Obama has zero support and this go around he has two major countries aligned against him. 
    Did he not learn any lesson from rushing in to Egypt?   Trying to look like a hero..but instead being duped by Al Qaeda.  We all know now what a tragic result ensued.  
    Obama does not care…his pride has been hurt.

  167. I’m more furious at ppl like Boehner for being so silent on this issue. If war is not enough to get Boehner step up and hold Obama feet to the fire, then nothing will

  168. Gov. Palin has more common sense than the entire corrupt, democrat, RINO elites, in D. C.–put together.

  169. JD Olson No body listened to any of the Major Prophets of the bible. Not that She compares. But She is a Strong voice in a world of Corruption. She should stick out like light in a dark world if you understand what propels the people love for drama.

  170. Gods Righteousness will prevail through all that has gone on in this Democracy.There should be no civilian making policy for the military. There are soo many things that are and have gone wrong. So much has been revealed. After what we have learned about voters rights and how we been trained to view things political. Obama should never be where he is. All this only proves to me I do’nt understand near of what I think I do of how things should go.I was brought up in the Army. My dad was a Master Sargent. I understand how I was brought up in the Army. At 57 and looking back. I never understood how much I would care about the things that made no sense to me. Like history and the entire world of Politics. The processes mean so much to me now.

    The GOP ‘politicians-for-life’, are one of our biggest problems.

  172. SheerPolitics
    Including the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood has been to the White House 200 times documented, could be more!

  173. We need to get rid of all the republican progressives! A good start…Boehner, McCain, Graham, McConnell! We need young blood in Congress. Get rid of all these ancient old farts!

  174. Restore the USA’s integrity:  elect Sarah Commander in Chief!  Sarah + Ted, the recipe for revival.

  175. Vettegal14
    Yah I can just see her now…”There you go again Obama lying to the American people!”

  176. I agree. Assad is despicable and so are his enemies as well. The civilians are caught in the middle, unfortunately.

  177. I agree. Assad is despicable and so are his enemies as well. The civilians are caught in the middle, unfortunately.

    She broke the (so called) ‘glass ceiling’ that Hillary was busy polishing. 😉 😉

  179. NYGino
    Yup, I was thinking the same thing! He hates Israel, so provoke Syria to do it. For him! Brilliant! Obama is a despicable coward!

  180. Syria is another domino in the Obama caliphate to turn the Middle East over to the Muslim Brotherhood. Remember that one of the first international meetings (or perhaps the first), was with the Muslim Brotherhood. He has a half-brother Malik who has ties to the MB.

    We have no national interest in involving ourselves in this civil war between Shiites and Sunnis. This is all about allowing the takeover of al qaeda (and soon) the planned destruction of Israel.

  181. Wow, Sarah displays such eloquence and passion when speaking out for Truth and Right! She would be one of the greatest Presidents this nation has ever known! Sarah is a class act! “I lift my glass to you Sarah!”

  182. stage9 3d81 Amen.  That is what we, as civilians, should do to honor our flag…. ‘hand over heart’!

  183. The impostor can’t directly attack Israel, as much as he’d like to, so he goes through the back door to get it done, just like he does with Congress and the Constitution.

  184. Governor Palin should be running for president not senator from Alaska and she needs to stop her own dithering about doing so.  I would support her should she do so.
    I hope that Governor Palin will run for president but I know she will never be allowed to win the GOP nomination and so I honestly believe she needs to run for president as either a conservative Independent or as a conservative 3rd party candidate.  And as I believe, it will be a third party that is needed to get through the necessary number of state legislatures, Mark Levin’s proposal to have a states’ constitutional convention to deal with the Liberty Ammendments he has proposed and any others that come forward for consideration.  So to that end, I think Sarah Palin should put together a 3rd conservative political party with Ted Cruz, Mark Levin and others for the express purpose of bringing about a States’ Constitutional Convention and for putting forward a candidate to run for president of the United States of America and a slate of candidates throughout the nation to challenge the status quo.
    Well said Governor Palin.

  185. tinlizzieownerYou’re spot on, tinlizzieowner. 
    When I heard Gov. Palin at the
    2008 Republican Convention, I was truly impressed and inspired with her
    brilliance, sharp wit, and patriotism (in spite of what that dolt John
    Cleese said about her).She’s getting better with time, a true leader for the American people.

  186. 57thunderbird” … these savages …” You got it, 57thunderbird.
    I quote Pamela Geller: ““In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the
    civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”
    In this case, we have two vicious savages beating the daylights out of each other with Christians and innocent (presumably) men, women, and children getting caught in the middle.
    I fully agree with Gov. Palin’s superb and brilliant statement.

  187. O.K. she makes alot of sense, but they are going to listen to her. But glad she is specking out. Good for her.

  188. JD Olson I so hope she becomes Senator Palin so she can legitimately run for President.  So she can run as a candidate that just won an office instead of the candidate who abandoned her office (no matter how good her reasons were for that).

  189. Somebody PLEEESE put a video camera on this American Patriot ! ! !  I LUV IT when I can watch her “Tell It To Their Face” ! ! ! !

  190. vettegal14 that’s not saying much, Assad sent out his 11 year old son to dispatch with Obama and Jane Fonda Kerry.

  191. Oh snap, Sarah! How many of us can visualize her as president and see the way she would relate to these countries that are now wired together like a big powder keg ready to go off? I can see flop-sweat galore on the faces of the dictators of Iran, Russia, Syria, and North Korea. When she says something will happen if a red line is crossed, do you think anyone would doubt it? The thing is, a Pres. Palin would have never got herself or this country into this embarrassing and apocryphal situation.

  192. tinlizzieowner 57thunderbird stage9 3d81 After you clarified it for me,it dawned on me that you run a military museum,so I knew you must be right. 🙂

  193. 57thunderbird stage9 tinlizzieowner 3d81  
    When you work in a military museum, you get asked questions like that. 😉

  194. tinlizzieowner 57thunderbird 3d81 Thanks TLO for clarifying.I am not surprised that you knew the answer.:-)

  195. stage9 tinlizzieowner 57thunderbird 3d81  
    Yup, I noticed that. If you are doing like I do (using one web server to comment on topics and a different one for replies), it complicates things. 😉 😉

  196. 57thunderbird 3d81  
    Those who have served in the military have the option to salute or put their hand over their heart but it is customary for those who have served, to put their hand over their heart, if in civilian clothes.

  197. One of the finer posts that I have seen on the part of Sarah Palin. A complete evisceration of Obama! Well done!

  198. I said it last night on another thread but I will say it again.Screw Syria!Let these savages fight their own civil war.I may seem heartless,but I say the fewer of these whacko Mooselimbs the better the world will be!

  199. “So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” – Sarah Palin
    No sweetheart, you are one of the smartest people in the room. That’s why the left is scared to death of you. 🙂

  200. An excellent statement of what an American foreign policy should be on this issue. It is as well stated as I have ever seen for the position of the USA for putting troops in harms way. Here is a real Commander in Chief.
    I apologize for attributing her remarks on Allah sorting it out to her CPAC speech, it was her keynote address at the Ralph Reed Faith event.

  201. RedDaveR The rules have changed because those that operate D.C.are the ones that were saying those things.Now the shoe is on the other foot.

  202. It’s pretty simple to understand, Obama’s Syria policy is “hope and change.” He’s out to fundamentally change the world.

  203. 3d81 Growing up I always remember hearing that those in uniform salute but civilians put their hands over their heart.

  204. 3d81 only military personnel.
    Civilians should never salute but place their hand over their heart.

  205. BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!  OFRAUD the PANSY MANCHILD with the IQ of a size 2 shoe has NO IDEA WHAT THE H he is doing….he is the ULTIMATE HYPOCRIT….he looks smaller and smaller everyday…no other government leader likes him, no one trusts him and his RAINBOW COALITION trying to make decisions that REAL MEN should make is a joke.  OFRAUD and his Bag of SKITTLES staff would be better pressed to choose LIP GLOSS or FINGERNAIL Polish than to have any idea what the MILITARY and REAL MEN THINK!!
    I will take SARAH for 2000.00 Alex for REAL STYLE AND INTELLIGENCE and I will take OFRAUD for MASSIVE DEBT and SPENPING Alex with NO GONADS and absolutely no clue!
    Let the Islamists take each other out…WHOS CARES ABOUT THEIR FILTH AND EVIL…and I could care less about the so called Victims…BS they all hate America…and they can all take a FLYING LEAP to DESTRUCTION….STAY OUT OF IT and let the SCUM DEAL WITH THE SCUM…

  206. something a little different…
    In the picture above I see Palin not saluting like the soilders are.
    Technically, who is allowed to salute?
    Is it only retired or current servicemen? Im assuming the president can salute since he is the commander. But then sometimes I see them with the heart on chest instead of a salute?
    Can someone in the know tell us how the saluting thing officially works?

  207. Well said, Gov. Palin.  I wonder what happened to the No Blood for Oil crowd, or the “Make love not war” people.  I guess the rules are different when a Democrat is in the White House.

  208. Seems to me we are doing this because England wants it.  I heard someone on the radio the other day who had lived in Syria for years and seems to be aware of the situation.  He says they had a HUGE oil find.  Which is the same reason Russia doesn’t want the attack since they are allies and would benefit from this.  Didn’t France lead the charge to oust Ghaddafi and didn’t I hear that was because of their oil and they were a major supplier to France?

  209. Right on Sarah,,,, but the obvious to me he he isn’t picking any ole side to win,,, he is picking alqueida/muslim brotherhood/ same as he did in other coiuntries. Same as he wants in the US and the Islam wants for the world

    “So we’re bombing Syria because Syria is bombing Syria? And I’m the idiot?” – Sarah Palin
    Gotta love that woman, lol!

  211. Clear, concise, cogent commentary from Gov. Sarah Palin. Thanks for making it your featured post.

  212. Lotta folks still don’t get it, Obama is a card carrying member of the Muslim Brotherhood.  His fellow Muslim at CIA, Brennan, will give him the nod when bombing will be most advantageous to their beloved Brotherhood.  It’s the Obama Caliphate.
