Woe be to Public Figure Republicans who wage personal attacks and crap on Sarah Palin going forward… word to the wise. You will get your political reputation kicked clean into orbit.

Reagan Fiscal Conservatives have Sarah’s back.

I mean this in every sense of the word… they will be ground into political dog meat.

Want to debate with Sarah? fine… no problem… want to smear and personally attack Sarah? We will make you walk back your attack and if you dont? we will politically destroy you.

A comment from my blogpost:

Foxwood // November 5, 2009 at 8:31 am

Newt is putting his career in front of his country. He doesn’t say anything about Sarah, and right now, Sarah is as close to Reagan as anyone out there. Just my opinion, I think more Conservatives need to back this woman. But what she does on her own will only make her stronger…

    Poll after poll shows that the conservative philosophy is more popular than ever, crossing party lines. Even President Obama did his best to run as a center-right candidate in 2008. He promised to address jobs, a necessary war in Afghanistan, even a tax cut. These are conservative principles, and voters are now seeing the difference between rhetoric and reality. The Left yearns for conflict on the Right, so their moderate members aren’t tempted to vote their conscience. We cannot fall into that trap.

    Newt had an ad for Palin in his email newsletter. It’s not that he doesn’t believe in her, he wishes he were that popular. They actually believe in the same principles. Would Hillary talk about Obama being amazing in 2007? Nope, cause she wanted the nom.

    Phoenix will rise, folks…. Palin looking likely.

    Election result: Red-state Dems worried, rethink agenda


    Election Day losses in Virginia (where Bob McDonnell, above right, won the gubernatorial race) and New Jersey have congressional Democrats focused like never before on jobs — their own.

    Election puts 10 Dems on high alert
    Election Day losses in Virginia and New Jersey have congressional Democrats focused like never before on jobs — their own.

    While the White House and party leaders are urging calm, Democratic incumbents from red states and Republican-leaning districts are anything but; Tuesday’s statehouse defeats have left them acutely aware that their votes on health care reform and other major Obama initiatives could be career-enders in 2010 or beyond.

    “I should be nervous,” said Rep. Parker Griffith, a freshman Democrat from Huntsville, Ala.

    Griffith said the Democratic rank and file is “very, very sensitive” to the fact that issues being pushed by party leaders “have the potential to cost some of our front-line members their seats.”

    House Democrats, forced to take a tough vote on a controversial cap-and-trade climate change bill in June, may have to vote as earlier as this weekend on the even more controversial health care bill. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team have struggled to get moderates on board for that vote, and Tuesday’s results won’t make the task any easier.

    “People who had weak knees before are going to have weaker knees now,” said Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.), a relatively liberal congressman who seemed safe in 2010 but now thinks a Republican challenger might feel emboldened by Tuesday’s election results.

    Democratic Sen. Jim Webb — who watched Republican Bob McDonnell and other statewide candidates erase years of Democratic gains in his home state of Virginia — said Tuesday’s results show that Republicans are “energized from what happened last year” but also that “people up here on our side need to get their message straighter, too.”

    Party leaders put their best face on Tuesday’s results.

    Pelosi, pointing to Democratic House victories in special elections in New York and California, said: “We won last night.”

    The office of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid circulated an analysis arguing that “gubernatorial races are primarily about local issues,” and that it’s therefore “hard to draw any direct comparisons between what happened in New Jersey and Virginia and what will happen in Congress.”

    But some Democrats weren’t buying the spin.

    “We got walloped,” said Sen. Mark Warner, the junior Democrat from Virginia.

    Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) said it was “nonsense” to suggest that the results in New Jersey and Virginia represented a referendum on President Barack Obama. To the contrary, he argued that the results meant that Democrats should redouble their efforts to “make sure we deliver on the promises of the last election.”

    But if Tuesday’s results leave red-state Democrats nervous about health care reform, a climate change bill and regulatory reform, it’s going to be harder — not easier — for Van Hollen and his leadership colleagues to develop that record of legislative accomplishment.

    And that’s certainly where things seemed to be headed Wednesday. As Pelosi’s office ordered members to stay in town for a possible Saturday night House vote on health care, other Democrats were suggesting that it’s time to take the foot off the gas.

    As members came to grips with the election returns, Rep. Frank Kratovil Jr. (D-Md.) said he wants “as much time as I possibly can [have] to review both sides and make the best decision I can make” on the health care bill.

    Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), a big swing vote for Democratic leaders, said Tuesday’s elections should tell Democrats that their “agenda needs to be patterned towards” the economy.

    “People need to be saying slow it down and don’t add more to the deficit,” Nelson said. “And what have many of us been talking about? We don’t want to see anything added to the deficit unless there’s cost containment.”

    On health care, Nelson said: “Let’s see coverage extended, … but at what cost?”

    there are those who are jealous of Sarah’s popular appeal just as with the ones jealous of Barack’s popular appeal.

    You can not manufacture it… or bottle it or invent it… it is inherent within a person as are their genes.

    Sarah is the Phoenix incarnate.

    Where she will take herself is limited only by her abilities and determination. Sexism will be used against her by both women and men.

    But… Sarah and Hillary have been writing the chapters of the ‘book’ started by the Iron Lady, Margret Thatcher, Prime Minister of Great Britain.

  11. samhenry says:

    Margaret Thatcher’s legacy is only now being appreciated and further investigated. Her achievements were unprecedented. All good and great women politicians are her true heirs. She made the improbable possible. She was the iron fist in the gloved hand. It is inconceivable to think that Reagan and Thatcher – such brilliant minds – should end their days in such a manner.

    Breaking News from FOC
    The climate bill came out of committee without the required minority input/approval.

  13. samhenry says:

    The bill is on the floor.

  14. samhenry says:

    CSPAN reporting (Fox got the jump on ALL the media and wire services on this one)

    Climate change Bill passes cmte., Despite Republican Boycott

    The Senate Environment Cmte. voted to send the climate change bill to the full senate without Republican participation. The bill was voted out of committee 10 to 1 with Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) as the only Democrat against the bill.

  15. samhenry says:

    How about more weekend Democrat action – they will debate abortion funding on SATURDAY.

  16. samhenry says:

    5 people- broke into a naval base – cut chain link fenses and investigated the base – including a key bunker for 4 hours!

    Base was in Washington State. Contains 1/4 of our nuclear materials. Has 10 nuclear submarines. What does this say about homeland security?

    Obama – what are you going to do about this? You are a weatherman. Which way does the wind blow now?

  17. samhenry says:

    Remember Barry’s casual acquaintance Bill Ayers? He an his wife were head of the Weathermen. Here’s a quote from Wickapedia:

    The Weathermen grew out of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) faction of SDS. It took its name from the lyric “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows”, from the Bob Dylan song Subterranean Homesick Blues. You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows was the title of a position paper they distributed at an SDS convention in Chicago on June 18, 1969. This founding document called for a “white fighting force” to be allied with the “Black Liberation Movement” and other radical movements[6] to achieve “the destruction of US imperialism and achieve a classless world: world communism.”[7]

  18. samhenry says:

    So Barry has taken our country to new lows in a matter of months:

    Introduced his communist legislation – Cap and Trade, Health Care, and now Climate Change.

    Meanwhile, military bases are not secured and he has made a mess of Gitmo.

    Barry – you don’t need a weatherman to tell you which way the wind blows. November 3 told you that.

    Dems in congress running scared and sending legislation to the floor in a flood of paperwork.

    Hmmmm, hope he hid himself during Comrade Barry’s Rants tuesday night.

    Concerning Sarah Palin: Can anyone think of a more viable Candidate to run in 2012 than Sarah?

    I for one Cannot.

    She is as close to a Reagan as we are ever going to see and I feel she may even surpass all of the Achievements of Ronald Reagan once Elected.

    I say that because she has the advantage of history and she can use the Reagan Accomplishments to her advantage and then build on what he had left undone.

    We The People have every reason to be very hopeful today and going forward.

    I’m calling my Rep and Senators today, Sami. My Rep Boustany and Senator Vitter are Republicans and Landrieu is a Democrat, but I’m calling them all. You know what I’m going to say to Landriew, but I will be telling the Republicans that I do NOT want compromise with the Democrats.

    I don’t care it you call it a trigger, a co-op, public option, government run. I would rather have NO healthcare as to live with Socialism.

  31. samiam60 says:

    Sarah Palin could and should be the poster child for all women everywhere.

    Democrats’ Plan to Help ‘Uninsurables’ Requires 6-Month Wait

    In addition to a six-month wait to qualify for the health insurance program, there’s a more fundamental issue — whether $5 billion set aside for the three-year program is enough.

  34. samiam60 says:

    WASHINGTON – You’re afraid your cancer is back, and a health insurance company just turned you down.

    Under the health care bills in Congress, you could apply for coverage through a new high-risk pool that President Barack Obama promises would immediately start serving patients with pre-existing medical problems.

    Wait a second. Read the fine print. You may have to be uninsured for six months to qualify.
    related links

    “If you are a cancer patient and have cancer now, you can’t wait six months to go into a plan because your condition can go from bad to death,” said Stephen Finan, a policy expert with the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network. He called the waiting period in the Senate bill “unacceptable.”

    Advocates for people with serious health problems, as well as some insurance experts, are raising questions about one of the most important upfront benefits in the Democratic health care legislation: a high-risk pool for the medically uninsurable.

    Obama proposed the pool in his September health care speech to Congress. Intended to serve the most vulnerable as a temporary fail-safe, it would stay in place until 2013. That’s when insurance companies would be banned from denying coverage because of medical problems.

    Government subsidies to make coverage more affordable for millions of uninsured would also start that year.

    Now, concerns are being raised about the design of the high-risk pools. In addition to the six-month wait, there’s a more fundamental issue — whether $5 billion set aside for the three-year program is enough. The money would be used to help people in poor health pay premiums.

    Obama credits his Republican presidential rival, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, for the risk-pools idea. But when the GOP candidate proposed it in 2008, the estimated cost was $7 billion to $10 billion a year.

    The six-month wait is in the health care bill the Senate Finance Committee approved last month. To qualify for the pool, patients must be turned down for coverage because of a pre-existing condition and uninsured for at least six months.

    “If you are somebody with cancer or a heart condition who needs immediate coverage and immediate treatment, that’s not very helpful,” said Karen Pollitz, a Georgetown University health policy professor.

    Senate Finance staffers say the restriction is meant to prevent people switching from more expensive coverage to take advantage of government assistance.

    But the House health care bill unveiled last week by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., doesn’t include a waiting period. Instead, it would require insurance plans who “dump” seriously ill patients to repay the federal pool. “The House provision will provide immediate relief for people with high-risk conditions who have no alternative for coverage,” said Finan.

    It may be easier to fix the waiting period than the financing.

    Both the House and the Senate Finance bills set aside $5 billion for the pools.

    “It doesn’t seem like it’s near enough money,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who was a top domestic policy adviser for McCain. The McCain campaign ultimately concluded it could take as much as $20 billion a year to properly run risk pools, he said. The White House says McCain’s proposal was more elaborate and not directly comparable to Obama’s.

    If the Democrats’ risk pool starts running out of money, the government may have to start a waiting list, raise premiums or take other unpopular measures. Congress could be asked for a bailout.

    Several independent experts say concerns about the financing are valid.

    “It would seem that ($5 billion) is going to be small relative to the need,” said Thomas Buchmueller, a University of Michigan business professor.

    Some 30 states now have risk pools for those who can’t get health insurance on the private market, covering about 200,000 people at a cost of around $1 billion a year.

    “This is clearly not going to be enough money to cover everybody,” said Pollitz.

    Insurance expert John Bertko, a visiting scholar at the Brookings Institution, said it may be possible to stretch the $5 billion, but there’s a small margin for error.

    Bertko said his “back of the envelope” math suggests there are about 1 million uninsured Americans in poor health, or five times the number currently covered by state high-risk pools. If all of them signed up for the new federal pool, it would burn through the $5 billion in a year.

    However, people eligible for government benefits often fail to sign up. And if only one-third were to enroll, the budget could work.

    That’s cutting it close. “No doubt about that,” said Bertko.

    AARP set to back House health care bill

  36. samiam60 says:

    Washington (CNN) — The push to overhaul health care is set to receive a major boost Thursday as the nation’s largest organization of older Americans endorses legislation drafted by top House Democrats.

    A Democratic source with direct knowledge of the matter said the AARP, a nonprofit, nonpartisan group that advocates for people 50 and older, will come out in favor of the measure.

    The AARP’s imprimatur comes as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, oversees final changes to the $1.1 trillion health care bill, which is likely set to come to a final vote Saturday.

    A 42-page manager’s amendment on the health care legislation posted Tuesday night made mostly technical changes in the nearly 2,000-page bill compiled from three Democratic proposals passed by three House committees.

    By making the changes public Tuesday, House Democratic leaders could open floor debate on the bill Friday, while fulfilling their pledge to allow 72 hours of review before bringing the measure to the full chamber.

    Meanwhile, the powerful American Medical Association also is set to weigh in on the debate, announcing its position on the House health care bill at a noon news conference.

    A day after unveiling their $60 billion bill, House Republicans will hold an opposition rally on Capitol Hill. GOP leaders will join with “Tea Party” movement protesters and other activists to warn that the House legislation would translate into a full-blown government takeover of the health care system.

    Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minnesota, told CNN’s “American Morning” on Thursday that Democrats had forgotten the lessons of August’s town hall meetings when angry conservatives severely criticized health care legislation.

    “I think what we’re going to see is the town hall coming to Washington, D.C., just to remind members of Congress [that] we’re the ones we would like you to pay attention to, not lobbyists. And we don’t want the government to own our health care,” Bachmann said.

    House Democrats have rejected Republican overhaul plans as inadequate for meeting the goals of expanding health coverage to most of the nation’s 46 million uninsured while bringing down costs and ending controversial industry practices such as denying coverage for pre-existing conditions.

    Pelosi’s bill would extend insurance coverage to 36 million uncovered Americans and guarantee that 96 percent of Americans have coverage, according to the Democratic leadership.

    The claim is based on an analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

    Among other things, the bill would subsidize insurance for poorer Americans and create health insurance exchanges to make it easier for small groups and individuals to purchase coverage. It also would cap annual out-of-pocket expenses and prevent insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions.

    Pelosi’s office has said the bill would cut the federal deficit by roughly $30 billion over the next decade. The measure is financed through a combination of a tax surcharge on wealthy Americans and spending constraints in Medicare and Medicaid.

    Specifically, individuals with annual incomes more than $500,000 — as well as families earning more than $1 million — would face a 5.4 percent income tax surcharge. Growth in Medicare expenditures would be cut by 1.3 percent annually.

    The House bill also includes a government-run public option. Under the House plan, health care providers would be allowed to negotiate reimbursement rates with the federal government. Pelosi and other liberal Democrats had argued for a more “robust” public option that would tie reimbursement rates for providers and hospitals to Medicare rates plus a 5 percent increase. Several Democrats representing rural areas, however, killed the proposal after complaining that doctors and hospitals in their districts would be shortchanged under such a formula.

    The House bill differs from legislation now being considered by the Senate in a number of critical ways. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, also favors a public option but would allow individual states to opt out of the plan.

    A bill recently passed by the Senate Finance Committee does not include a tax surcharge on the wealthy but would impose a new tax on high-end health care policies, dubbed “Cadillac” plans by critics. A large number of House Democrats are adamantly opposed to taxing such policies, arguing that such a move would hurt union members who traded higher salaries for more generous benefits.

    Reid refused Tuesday to predict when the chamber would pass a health care bill, possibly signaling difficulty in generating support from his entire Democratic caucus.

    President Obama has said he wants to sign a health care bill this year. However, Reid declined to offer a timetable when asked at a news conference if he believed the Senate would pass the bill by the end of December.


  37. Foxwood says:

    Here’s the Commie tactic. I called the Landrieu office in Washington. They answer and say please hold. You hold for 15 minutes, get tired and call again. The phone line is busy. That is why Michele Backman wanted us in Washington. They have been instructed NOT to listen to us.

  38. Foxwood says:

    Please call and confirm this for me, anyone.

  39. samiam60 says:

    Fox, it is the same way when you call a VA Hospital.
    Or, when they transfer your call you get disconnected.

    Government run anything sucks.

    Senate Panel Approves Climate Change Bill Despite GOP Boycott

    Republicans had boycotted the committee’s work on the bill, insisting on a cost analysis of the proposal by the EPA.

  41. samiam60 says:

    In a rare move, Democrats on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Thursday approved a sweeping climate change bill without any Republicans present.

    Republicans had boycotted the committee’s work on the bill, insisting on a cost analysis of the proposal by the EPA.

    The bill would require cuts in greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent over the next decade from 2005 levels. But Republicans warned the bill would leave consumers with higher energy bills.

    “This would be the largest tax increase in the history of America,” Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., one of the seven committee Republicans, told Fox News. “I can only conclude that they don’t want the public to know how much money this thing is going to cost.”

    Inhofe, who said the committee typically needs two minority members present to advance a bill to the floor, called the vote Thursday “unprecedented.”

    One Democrat, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., voted against the bill. Ten Democrats voted for it.

    Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., chairwoman of the committee, applauded the vote in a written statement Thursday.

    “We are pleased that despite the Republican boycott, we have been able to move the bill,” she said.

    She defended the decision not to seek an EPA analysis, calling such a study “duplicative and a waste of taxpayer dollars.”

    But it still appears unlikely that the Senate will approve the legislation this year. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would have to meld five different committees’ versions of the bill, at the same time he’s trying to hammer out a consensus on health care reform.

    Inhofe said the legislation is “dead.”

    A bipartisan group of senators is trying to craft a compromise bill in hopes of attracting broader support.

    To move the bill out of committee without Republicans present Thursday meant the Democrats could not amend the legislation, and many Democrats on the panel expressed disappointment that they did not have a chance to improve the bill.

    “The failure of the Republicans to participate means we cannot offer amendments. This is a very good start, but as the chair has acknowledged it is a start and only a start,” said Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa. “It is regrettable that we could not move forward in a more constructive way.”

    Specter said that the vote would send a signal to other countries in advance of a climate change conference next month to hammer out a new international treaty.

    “It is not the best signal, but it is a signal that the Senate is ready to move forward,” he said.

    The next thing for the communist administration and the polit bureau run by Pelosi would be to wear camouflage to further hide their work.


    Pelosi to have her news conference soon.

    61 billion cost over 10 years of Republican Health Care Plan versus 3 trillion for the Democratic Bill.

    Repub. alternative would lower premiums and cap lawsuits. Would NOT end pre-existing conditions problems with insurance companies. Would only cover 83

    Sami – good article – FOX broke this news – you know that station that is not really a news network! They got it before anybody.

    Here’s the key to trying to rush this thing through:

    Specter said that the vote would send a signal to other countries in advance of a climate change conference next month to hammer out a new international treaty.

    “It is not the best signal, but it is a signal that the Senate is ready to move forward,” he said.

    This is step one in giving away some of our sovereignty.

    You are so very right SamH and all we can do is try to limit the damage between now and 2010.

    I like Senator Jim Inhofe. Met him several times before he was a Senator, a real nice guy. But I would avoid shaking hands with his brother Jack.

    Jack Inhofe that is…

    SamHenry! Congrats!!!!!
    You finally see that I am not a shock-jock. The Obama admin goal is communism. I also pasted awhile back, a history of Ayers, Michelle, Dohrn, and Obama and their work with SDS last week…

    Ppl think that we and Beck and Alex Jones and tea party movement are over-blowing the danger Obama’s people are implementing, but it’s true!

    If only THE Media would have made all the wealth of Obama’s history available! Geez.

    I heard this morning that the Judge said on Beck’s show that the public option was slipped into the stimulus.

    I’m serious.

    Thanks M2 – You are not wacko or out in left field. You are very bright and can see and pull together items from disparate places.

    As stated earlier VF – I like this particular post for its unique analysis.

    FOX, SAMI and TELLIT – this ole dawg needs an afternoon nap. See you around.
