Sporting her new haircut, her new nose, and plump lips, Sarah Palin has assumed the role of the News Anchor. She appeared in front of an American Flag in an “On Point” interview of the GOP candidates for President. Perhaps because she couldn’t answer questions while she was hired to be a commentator, she has assumed the role of asking the questions. That way all the questions can be pre-determined. Obviously a script can be prepared in advance. The amusing thing is that the only thing about Sarah Palin that seemed to be attractive to people was her appearance. Now that she has destroyed that with plastic surgery, she is a brainless, unattractive, person reading a script.
In a single day she interviewed the Donald, Ted Cruz, and Jeb Bush. It is worthy of note that not a single question or comment of Palin during the interview was spontaneous. She never asked a question inspired by something one of the people interviewed said. Here are the interviews:
The Donald- 1,463,791 views:
Focus of interview: How Great Trump is
Ted Cruz- 22,283 views:
Focus of interview: Religious Freedom, De-funding Planned Parenthood, an “ongoing nationwide criminal enterprise,” “We are not going to fund the abortions.”
Jeb Bush– 8992 views:
Focus of interview: The need to help special needs children,
The focus of the entire interview with Cruz was the anti-choice position promoted by Palin. The focus of the interview with Bush was the importance of caring for special needs children, like Trig.
I’m calling “bull-shit.”
The Donald is “very pro-choice”. He said “I am very pro-choice in every respect“. He was specifically asked about late term, partial birth abortions in another interview.
For Sarah to “interview” Trump, Cruz, and Bush in the same day, and not discuss Trump’s “pro-choice” views, is a total cover-up. It is a dishonest portrayal of the GOP front runner to pretend that he holds views that are so opposite to his running mates on abortion. The only issue that Sarah has remained consistent on is her anti-abortion stance, which she has promoted since she ran for mayor. Trump, the only candidate that has indicated he’d find a place in his cabinet for Palin, is the pro-choice candidate. It appears that Sarah is more interested in self-promotion than her anti-abortion stance.
Anyone who has watched this video, has gained an understanding of the term “Kapooya”. Nothing else quite conveys the image of being pummeled like the term “Kapooya.”
Yesterday the Donald appeared at a press conference in Dubuque, Iowa. Nobody at the conference said “KAPOOYA, KAPOOYA” to the Donald, but that’s what everyone was thinking. Here is a video of the relevant portion of the press conference.
It is important to listen carefully to the beginning of the video. As indicated Jorge Ramos was asking a question before the Donald even stepped to the microphone. In the moments that followed, the Donald was rude, insulting, degrading, and offensive in his remarks to Mr. Ramos.
Five times the Donald interrupted Mr. Ramos and told him to sit down. Trump told him to go back to Univision. (Trump is currently the Plaintiff in a suit against Univision).
Mr. Ramos said “I have the right to ask a question.” Trump attacked Ramos by saying “I have a bigger heart than you do.”
Trump described Ramos as “totally out of line,” “ranting and raving and screaming,” and “honestly being very disrespectful to all the other reporters.”
During the recorded conversation between Donald Trump and Jorge Ramos, Trump told Ramos to “sit down” five times. In an interview with Matt Lauer this morning, Trump explained that he was not a bully. He was, he thought , “just the opposite.” Trump described Ramos as “ranting and raving like a madman”. Certainly everyone watching the clip can see that Ramos wasn’t ranting and raving like a madman.
This incident follows Trumps provocative assertion that Mexico is sending their rapists to America.
Trump was given an opportunity to try to minimize his message of hate and disrespect. Instead he doubled down.
Then there was the Megyn Kelly question during the debate:
Megyn Kelly’s question was prefaced with Trump’s own words describing women as“Fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.” When later discussing the question, instead of suggesting that Megyn got her facts wrong, he attacked Kelly again, suggesting that the motivation for her question was hormonal.
Later on twitter, Trump continued on his attack of Kelly calling her a “bimbo.”
Everyone agrees that the Republican Party absolutely will not win the election of 2016 without attracting significantly more Latino and female voters. Trump is doing the opposite. Here are just one, two, three, four articles affirming that fundamental imperative.
By continuing to lead in the polls, Trump does damage to the GOP. The clear implication is that Republicans in general must support Trump’s discriminatory attitudes against women and Hispanics, or he would not be leading. The clear implication is that Trump will never be elected President. It seems the GOP realizes this fact and is trying to position itself to prevent Trump from being on the ballot. The latest idea is to require a “loyalty oath” asking that all candidates promise to support whoever is the chosen candidate and agree not to run as an independent.
Trump’s candidacy has perfectly exposed the inherent weaknesses in the design of modern American political parties. In earlier times, party bosses would have easily been able to sidetrack Trump at the national convention. But these bosses are long gone.
Ramos anchors the evening news with Maria Elena Salinas at Univision, the fifth-largest TV network in the U.S. More than 2 million viewers tune in to “Noticiero Univision.” That’s three times the audience of CNN’s “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer.” Fox News is the most watched cable news channel for the 159th month in a row, according to new Nielsen numbers. That means that broadcast rivals have not topped the network for over 13 years. Fox News typically averages 1.7 million viewers in the coveted primetime arena, compared to 535,000 for CNN and 536,000 for MSNBC, according to Nielsen.
By attacking Megyn Kelly and Jorge Ramos, Trump has not only declared war on women and Hispanics, but also the two most popular news shows. KAPOOYA!

The Donald may be many things. Jeb Bush described him as
“a buffoon,” a “clown” and an “asshole. Others have used words line “douche” “narcissist” “repulsive” “numbnuts” and “opportunist” to describe the Donald. Fill in the blank, each of us could add many other colorful descriptors of the Donald. However, among the many adjectives that come to mind, none relate to his intellect. “Stupid” “Clueless” and “Ignorant” might accurately describe Sarah Palin, but nobody would say that about the Donald; even his enemies.
Likewise, nobody would describe Hillary or Bill Clinton as ignorant or clueless. Bill Clinton may be the most gifted politician of our time. He is a “political savant.” He has been described as having both the “rare oratorical gifts and granular insight of the electoral arts.” He has observed to be “demonstrating his mastery of minutiae to advise on how to win to ugh races.” Just one example of the genius of Bill Clinton, is his nominating speech in 2012 of Barack Obama.
With Bill Clinton, political savant, as her husband, it seems that Hillary Clinton has the most powerful weapon in America as her adviser on her campaign for President in 2016. So if Bill Clinton were to fantasize about the surest way to see his wife victorious in 2016, what would be Bill’s wish? He already knows that nobody from the Democratic party would consider mounting a serious campaign against he and Hillary. In terms of Republican opponents, Bill would wish for the weakest candidate possible. Even better would be the entire Republican party so weak that nobody could win. Best of all, Bill would like a conservative to run as an independent to split the conservative vote. How could Bill Clinton accomplish these goals? The Donald was the obvious solution.
We already know these things:
1. Donald Trump has donated at least $100,000.00 to Hillaries campaign and/or charitable foundation.
2. Bill Clinton talked with Donald before he announced his candidacy and ENCOURAGED HIM TO RUN.
3. Trump cannot possibly be considered either a Republican or a conservative, once you account for his apparent political beliefs (many of which are remarkably liberal) and concrete policy proposals (or lack thereof).
4. Trump has close ties to both Hillary and Bill Clinton. The Clintons attended Tump’s third wedding.
5. Trump’s apparent intent to run on an independent ticket—should he lose the Republican nomination—indicates he cares more about splitting the Republican vote (essentially insuring the election of a Democratic president) than he does about actually electing Republicans. He also lacks the wherewithal and/or long-term funding to mount a legitimate presidential campaign were he to become the actual Republican nominee.
Boiled down, Trump’s appeal to the Republican Party’s base consists of his willingness to say nakedly racist statements and his promises to enact equally racist legislation. His outrageous remarks to Megyn Kelly and his manipulation of Fox is headline news. When a woman will inevitably be the Democratic nominee, nobody in their right mind would attack a beautiful woman like Megyn Kelly, attacking her with gender based attacks, unless it was being done for the purpose of ensuring the election of Hillary Clinton.
Likewise, Trump went out of his way to assault and insult the Hispanic voters in America.
It is undisputed that the Republican nominee in 2016 will need to get a higher share of Latino votes than in the past. The GOP needs to win twice the percentage that Mitt Romney received when he ran as the Republican presidential candidate in 2012. Romney received just 23 percent of the Latino vote. Trump seems to be intent on ensuring that Hillary will maintain her lead among Hispanic voters of 64%. A Whopping 56% of all women favored Hillary. Surely after Trump’s attack on Megyn Kelly, that lead will only solidify rather the be reduced.
In case that wasn’t sufficiently clear, why would any serious candidate suggest they thought Sarah Palin was worthy of a cabinet position? Even in Alaska, Sarah Palin is despised by the majority of people. A total of 55% of voters in Alaska hold an unfavorable opinion of Sarah Palin. Only 39% of Alaskan voters even have a favorable opinion of her. More importantly, as conservative as Alaska is, Hillary is favored over Sarah Palin in Alaska.
Hillary hasn’t been elected yet, but it seems that the Donald is doing everything possible to ensure her election. The Donald is kryptonite to the Republican Party. He is a defibrillator to Hillary’s campaign, giving it new energy and life at the first sign of reduction in breathing.
