Article From American Thinker

The end of 2014 marks, as the ends of all years do, the creation of “best of” and “worst of” awards. It was in that spirit that the American Thinking awarded former Alaska governor, former vice presidential candidate, and most powerful female politician on the planet, the “American Achiever of 2014” award in a piece on Saturday. As she contemplates her political future, such as a possible run for the presidency, Palin can indeed look back on 2014 as a year in which much was achieved.
When one describes Palin as the most powerful female politician on the planet, one inevitably gets eye rolls and suggestions that one regard one Hillary Clinton, the once and future inevitable president of the United States. The American Thinker piece has an answer to that objection. It is based on cold metrics.
“Governor Palin endorses 22 candidates for various offices during the midterms finals including senators, governors, lt. governors, congressmen, and attorney's general. Of those so endorsed an incredible 20 were elected -- contrasted with, for example, Hillary Clinton's record of 8 wins out 24 endorsed candidates.”
2014 also marked the year that, not for the first time, Palin’s political judgment proved to be superior to that of the current president. In 2008, when Russia’s Vladimir Putin was invading Georgia, Palin predicted that then Senator Obama’s indecision would be just the sort of thing that would encourage him to go after the Ukraine next. The foreign policy establishment ridiculed her for being a boob for suggesting such a thing. But, one can now ask, who is the boob and who the prophet?
Palin is headed for the Iowa Freedom Summit in 2015, an event that is attracting almost every presumed candidate on the Republican side for president. Her presence there is fueling speculation of her own ambitions. She recently hinted that she was thinking of elected office again. On the other hand, she has been doing rather well as a king maker. Anyone at the summit would do well to kiss her ring and solicit her approval and advice. Mitt Romney failed to do so in 2012 and then lost the election. The current competitors would do well not to repeat that mistake.

  7. Way back prior to the 2008 election, I got into it with many of my liberal and progressive friends because I preferred Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama. I liked Obama, but I must admit that I did have some doubts about his patriotism. Given the whole business with Reverend Wright, the fact that he wouldn’t wear an American Flag pin on his lapel, the friendship with Bill Ayers, etc. I believed that there was something more to his agenda and that scared me!
    I also thought Hillary would do a better job than Barack. I also was leery of Michelle back then, and to be perfectly honest I had some doubts about her, but i no longer do.. Four years later, Hillary proved herself, she has done a magnificent job as Obama's Secretary of State, and national and international polling about her job approval ratings have maintained very high marks throughout her tenure. Before that, her performance in the Senate also drew high marks, even from her Republican Senate colleagues. Judging by Bill Clinton's enthusiastic campaigning for President Obama's second term in office, it was obvious to me that Bill was paving the way for Obama to wholeheartedly endorse Hillary in the 2016 presidential race. I adore Hillary, and I think Bill Clinton was the best president we've had in the last 30 years. To think that President Hillary Clinton would have her husband to advise her is the very definition of the term, "value added." I do have a dream. I dream of Hillary winning the 2016 Democratic primary, and her choosing Michelle Obama as her running mate. With that ticket, the world would see America's evolution, and our global street cred would be astronomically high. I think Jeb Bush is already gearing up to run for president in 2016, and after eight years of us enduring his moronic big brother in the oval office, I doubt that the American electorate will want to risk another Bush catastrophe. So, a Hilary and Michelle may bring an excellent ticket.
    I knew from the get-go that Fox News would be dumping Sarah the Grifter Palin from their payroll soon after they hired her, so her star is tarnished and bent, much like her whore daughter Brisket's reputation. Let's face it--even Fox News would rather see Obama win a second term because at least that gives them something to bitch about on their newscasts. Clint Eastwood was the best the GOP could come up with at their hurricane-plagued convention. His speech was like any 82-year-old's--rambling, vague and speaking to someone who wasn't in the room, or maybe in his eyes there was! . The GOP had lied so often, everyone is bored with hearing the same old stupid lies again. When they went with Mitt Romney the best they had, I knew that they would sink .. Sure, they now the have Chris Christie that conniving, lying piece of crap waiting in the wings for 2016, that is if his strained heart can continue to carry about his 400+ pounds than much longer. I read all sorts of news bits about Mittens going for another try. How can that be, when even Fox News seems lukewarm about that phony bastard? Who will vote for Romney one precentors, racists and imbeciles? If that’s all they got, the Democrats are once again a shoe in.

  11. Just to make things perfectly clear you liberals who are trashing the police are trashing the very people that put their own lives on the line to protect YOU! They are not just a union or a bunch of Right Wing anti Black group who wakes up in the Morning thinking about shooting Innocent unarmed Black “Teens”.. Go spin that.

    Mayor De Blasi stuck his foot in his mouth, and made an ass of himself, disrespected the lives of the deceased and the integrity of the entire Police Department, just to be on the same side of that Racist Bastard Al Sharpton. That is what THIS guy on the right objects to.
    I find it very uncomfortable hearing a supposed leader come out in support of riots, thugs and people that want double standards for certain races of people.

    And I feel that Blasio should go.

    To suggest that Rudy Giuliani or anyone else needs their mouth wired shut is completely stupid and the typical response of a leftist Moron. But this is par for the course of a liberal who only supports their own free-speech.
    De Blasio, Obama, Heinrich Holder, and Al Sharpton and all those who encouraged this anti-Cop, racist mentality all have blood on their hands. They all threw the Police under the bus.
    This Big Mouthed Progressive Mayor Di Blasi’s remarks were the inevitable result of the, Cop Hating Despicable Worm Al Sharpton.
    And I personally applaud the Police officers for turning their back on that backstabbing, Mayor.

  15. Dear Black Ferguson, and New York “Protesters”, Thugs,/Rioters/Looters/ and Stupid Black Hate Groups who follow Al Sharpton.,

    So your so-called leaders are calling for violence when Darren Wilson is not indicted? Why are we not surprised? Experience. The same reason we won’t be surprised when you burn/loot/destroy what’s left of your emerging Detroit-like ghetto. Congratulations!

    Your political slave masters finally got the one wish they prayed for that would enrage and get you to the polls to once again vote for Democrats. The gift? The gift that comes every two years or so before an election. A white finger on the trigger that kills a black thug.

    Democrats and their black stooges in the civil rights advocate profession know they can count on your ignorance and hatred of white people to stir you up to a fever pitch all the way to the voting booth. They don’t care about you. Only your vote.

    ust as George Zimmerman, a white liberal, was found not guilty of killing black thug Trayvon Martin in self-defense, all evidence so far points to Darren Wilson not being charged in shooting black thug Mike Brown. But you don’t want justice, as you yell in the streets. You want revenge because a police officer dared defend himself from a violent, black criminal who attacked him and tried to get his gun. In your faked rage, you also will burn down and loot what’s left of your ghetto for emphasis. And you’ll steal a few Hi Defs and potato chips. Free at last!

    Decent people in America are sitting back and shaking our heads at your stupidity and hypocrisy. You yell “Every black life counts!” Well, not to black people. Hundreds of blacks are murdered by other blacks every weekend in. And that’s only in Chicago! Seriously, 79.5% of the victims/attackers in Chicago are black. And not all victims are black gangsta thugs. But there was no black outrage when little black infant like Jonylah Watkins was shot in her father’s arms by black ghetto thugs. Your liberal, white masters don’t see votes when blacks shoot blacks. Because, in reality black Ferguson protesters, you don’t care about black lives either.

    Ask yourself this. Would you be burning/looting/protesting if Mike Brown had been shot down by another ghetto thug? All evidence and crime data suggest Brown would have soon been dead by one of his own before too long. Of course you would’t be! Brown would have just been the latest “dead aspiring rapper” in the media and “a good boy who ain’t never done nuffin’ wrong” by his mother and grandmother. Nothing to see here. Just another day.

  16. In reality, ghetto black Ferguson protesters, you’re really just too stupid to see how you’re being manipulated by the liberal whites who own you. Have you noticed the white Communists in your crowds? What does free market capitalism and Communism have to do with the shooting of Mike Brown? Was Mike Brown a Muslim? Then why are Muslims in St Louis calling for jihad? Because they realize their black ghetto puppets can be manipulated. Communists and Muslims always recruit the most stupid, excitable and ignorant classes.
    And just incase you haven’t yet heard, a group of Liberals aka a pile of trash have been verbally attacking Jet Blue as being racist for giving cops free flights to NYPD Officers Funeral
    None of this is surprising to the decent, responsible, law-abiding people of America. We see, despite the best efforts of the mainstream propaganda media, the horrid results of what happens when your ghetto actions spread into a community. Look at your own community after responsible whites, and I’m sure many responsible blacks, have fled your encroaching ghetto plague. Now that you’ve burned and looted businesses, don’t look for them to rebuild. They won’t rebuild until you have, like cockroaches, infested another part of town that you’ll subsequently destroy. Then, and only then, will responsible people reclaim Ferguson.

    YOU GHETTO THUGS are no different from ghetto thugs in Baltimore, Birmingham, Detroit, Gary, Chicago or any other large American city. You’re lazy, ignorant, profane, violent, stupid, irresponsible, and totally incapable of existing without the money taken from the responsible in America and redistributed by white liberals in government to buy your vote. What other culture glorifies violence, calls its women “bitches and ho’s”, and produces nothing of worth? Only one. Islam. Both cultures are disgraceful.

    Since you contribute nothing to decent society, you seek to extort law-abiding, decent Americans by your threats of violence. Yes, most decent people fear ghetto blacks from watching the generations of your violent lifestyle. You stupidly mistake fear for respect. There is nothing to respect about your irresponsible, violent lifestyle. And your irresponsible, violent lifestyle has been tolerated for far too long.

    The decent people of America are prepared to fight you if need be. We will not sit idly by after you loot and burn your ghetto hellholes. The police in Ferguson may be afraid to put you down but rest assured decent Americans will not tolerate such behavior in our communities. In the words of an ex-Special Forces friend of AWD, “they may come up here in cars but they’ll go back in body bags.” We are not afraid and will not hesitate to protect our homes and families from your looting and violence. And we are armed to the teeth and know how to fire our weapons without holding our crotches!

    If you want to hurt white people who have negatively affected your life, then kick the dog snot out of the white liberal, Communist idiots and ignorant fools like Al Sharpton organizing and attending your protests.

    In short, decent, law-abiding people in America have had enough of the ghetto black culture. You are in your present pathetic situation because of YOUR choices. You chose to drop out of school. You chose to have illegitimate children. You chose the ghetto thug culture. You chose to commit crimes. You chose to be ignorant fools. You have allowed yourselves to be manipulated by evil, white liberals. You, and no one else, bears the blame! It’s time ghetto black America takes responsibility for its own putrid condition. Slavery has nothing to do with your worthlessness! If white people ceased to exist tomorrow, you would still be ignorant, worthless, violent thugs!

    Want to improve your lives? Stay off the streets of Ferguson. Get a job. Pay your own bills. Quit blaming others for your failures. Be productive. Make smart life decisions. Cease to be a burden on America! The choice is yours. Don’t make it ours!

    Signed,

    The Decent, Responsible, Law-abiding People of America.

    As for raising the minimum wage, I think this one is going to blow up in the Obama's face. In effect she and the President's own tale of woe are insulting people who work at "lowly jobs" such as retail clerks and valets. Their comments are an insult to millions of working class Americans who work at the Targets, the WalMarts, at hotels, waiters and waitresses, cab drivers, etc. Once again the Obama's are showing their elitism.

    As the Obama's continue to promulgate their fight against income inequality, they need to be asked if they will redistribute their millions to the poor when they leave the White House?
