Keith Olbermann remarked that, "People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like." Olbermann added that there was a "lot of sarcasm," "condescension towards Obama." Chris Matthews noted that Palin and Hillary Clinton "have nothing in common" and that her being chosen has "nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. " Instead, Matthews said, "She is a torpedo aimed directly at the ship of Barack and Michelle Obama." "This is a cultural alternative to Obama. A very direct cultural shot," he added.

The Last Post-Ceasing To Blog.

This will be the last post for this site and my broader commentary site: 
  M.JosephSheppard's A Point Of View


After 6 years of activism for the conservative point of view, and especially having had the honor of discussing Governor Palin I am retiring. I have had a lifetime of political activity at various levels, an have been a published author on political economy, a president of a political party I well know that there comes a time when the field should be left to those who are younger.

I don't regret a moment of my spirited support for Governor Palin and in another age, and  in a young mind and body, my support for George McGovern! I was right then and am right now as history showed and will show. These six year shave been amongst the most creative, productive and interesting of my life-I've made countless happy interactive connections and heard views that have added to my store of knowledge and insight-I'd do it all over without hesitation.What has been a profound revelation was to see that so many people get up in the morning with the intention to hate someone they have never met-one can't help but to reflect with pity.

I am dedicating my time to promoting my wife's new book; "The Shining Hours"    


and am undertaking a work of my own which experience has shown has to have full dedication. As for Governor Palin, I made it clear that this site was always about promoting her as the GOP nominee but, if circumstances or her own decision precluded that, the title of the blog could just as well be "Palin in The Presidency 2016" as it is her ideas and ideals that are at the core of my support which ideals transcend the person. I set this out some time ago in a post reproduced below.

 I will leave the two sites up as I note that many people search for and read the older articles, and there are some university studies that show Governor Palin was a plus for the McCain campaign which can be of value to rebut critics.

To the +700,000 people of goodwill who viewed the two sites my sincere thanks and to those, and of course to Governor Palin and her family I extend my best wishes and regards

Palin-ism In the Presidency

Subsequent to the Los Angeles Times major article proposing Sarah Palin as "the Cure" for the GOP and it's suggestion that Palin may be an ideal candidate for 2016
there have been howls of derision from the left.

That is to be expected in Los Angeles of course, the unexpected however was the article itself. Amongst the huge number of leftist criticisms was a recurring theme that has been running for two years now. It has numerous variants, but in sum if runs along these lines "Palin is an egotist/She will drag out the "will she won't she" run game for four years whilst getting suckers to send her money" and suchlike.


Leaving aside that the decision to run for president is a momentous one, not only for a candidate but for their family.

As Palin knows, probably more than anyone. A merciless and unfair blowtorch is immediately focused on the candidate and anyone associated with them. Thus if Palin takes a long time to come to a decision, only a poltroon would condemn her for that.

The arrogance of the left is such that they consider that anyone who supports Sarahpac financially is a dumb sucker.

Obviously Palin supporters are well aware she may not run when they send money to Sarahpac. They do know that the money will go towards supporting candidates for office that Palin approves of. They also know it will not go towards "supporting Palin's extravagant lifestyle" and other such childish leftist idiocies.

Those who support Palin obviously would like her to run, but we obviously know that she may not.When we support her, in the media, or financially, or on the ground when her chosen candidates run we are supporting Palin-ism. Obviously we would like to see Palin-ism put in to effect by Palin herself, but if that is not to be, then seeing it effected by people she supports will also do. For us it is money and time well spent.


The leftist cynics can simply go to hell.


I addressed this matter before the Los Angeles Times article and reproduce it below as a supplement to the new commentary above.



This site is not absolutely about Sarah Palin regardless of the Blog title. Of course I, and I am sure a massive number of others, judging by her Facebook followers being over 3 million, would wish her to run in 2016.


But Palin is only one person, and a person with massive family commitments, especially with Trig of course. It may be that she has developed a taste for the freedom from financial constraints and from media criticism worries, and is happy to enjoy the rest of her life in comfort and ease.

If so, good for her. Surely nobody else in public life has endured the slings and arrows of outrageous leftism over the last four years and would be entitled to such a respite as her skills and endurance has gained for her.

There are of course many options for public involvement open to her. She will be in demand as public speaker for some time yet as an historic figure at least.

The currently Dem. held Alaskan senate seat is up for election in 2016, and of course she can continue endorsing and campaigning for candidates she considers it important to do so. Her influence as an endorser is undiminished as e.g Ted Cruz in Texas will testify.

But even if none of these options appeal to her (which I doubt) this blog would change from Palin4President2016 to "Palinism In The Presidency 2016". No matter how great or influential and correct a person's political, social and economic  ideas and ideals are, they will outlive their originator if they have lasting value.

The "common sense conservatism" policies that Sarah Palin espouses and exemplifies, are lasting if not timeless and will be her legacy no matter what her personal future holds. An outline of  what she, and this site stands for are
AT THIS LINK

In the meantime, unless or until Palin herself  advises she will cease any activism which might lead her to make a run for office, the blog title will stay as it is. Should she decide to leave the political scene then a simple change of emphasis from the person to the policies the person espoused will suffice.

Governor Palin Reaches 4,000,000 Facebook "Likes"

From US4Palin
And from me; Palin4President 2016 hits 325,00 page views too :-)
sarah-palin-4m
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin today reached 4 million likes on her Facebook public figure page.
Sarah Palin established the page on August 29, 2008 when she was still a sitting governor in her home state of Alaska and she became John McCain’s running mate for that year’s Presidential election. Her first post after the campaign was to announce the formation of SarahPAC. Most significantly she predicted the existence of death panels in ObamaCare. Whether it was the BP gusherFast and FuriousNSA spyingBenghazi, endorsing candidates such as Lt. Col. Allen West,Ted Cruz, and Paul Gosar; or providing simple glimpses into her personal and family life, Sarah Palin’s Facebook page has been a principal means by which she brings her message to the mass market. The page has also served as a vehicle of communication between Gov. Palin and her supporters for the past five years.

Gov.Palin's New Endorsement Expressed In Powerful Forceful Words "The Content Of her Character" On Display

Texas, it starts with you!

2014 is here. The choices are becoming clearer, and the battle lines are being drawn. The GOP Beltway crowd has convinced itself that the way to maintain or retake the majority is through compromise and capitulation on important issues like amnesty, Obamacare, and the ever-increasing federal debt. They think that by making deals with a deeply unpopular and divisive incumbent president on issues that Americans oppose, they’ll somehow endear themselves to voters.

Enough is enough. The permanent political class in D.C. won’t listen. So, let’s start putting our efforts behind good new candidates who will go to Washington 
not to line their own pockets, but to help restore our country. It’s time to put inspiration, ingenuity, and integrity over incumbency in the GOP.

Let’s start in Texas. The lines couldn’t be clearer. Katrina Pierson is an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement. Her life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.

A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms. 

When asked about Katrina’s primary challenge, he said, “these things happen.” Yes, they do. We all know what happens when we come together to support a good candidate like Katrina – the permanent political class loses and We the People win! We win by electing a fighter we can depend on like Katrina Pierson. Ted Cruz calls Katrina “an utterly fearless principled conservative.” He should know. Katrina was among the conservative grassroots warriors in Texas who worked tirelessly to elect Senator Cruz.

Early voting started yesterday, Texas. Get out now and vote for Katrina. Send a message to the GOP elites on behalf of Katrina, just like you did for Ted Cruz in 2012.

And while you are out there voting for Katrina, check the box for another good conservative – Greg Abbott for Governor of Texas. Like Katrina, Greg has overcome many personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!

God bless you and God bless America.

Four Academic And Polling Company Reports All Conclude Palin Helped McCain 2008

The left, and, sadly some on the supposed right keep pushing the story that "Palin cost McCain the election in 2008." The weight of academic study from university political science departments and from polling companies and respected political sites all utterly refute this allegation-or rather blatant lie as the case may be.

Rather than detailing the salient points from all of these studies I link them below.Anyone with the slightest leaning to a non-biased point of view-no matter how leftist they were would have to admit this independent, academic analysis makes it very clear what the truth is.

This graph makes it clear as day what the "Palin effect"
was for McCain's campaign and exactly when his chances ended after being ahead. Just after Lehman Brothers collapse you can clearly see Obama go from being behind to zooming straight up in Electoral College votes.

Biden Destroys Left Meme That "Palin Cost McCain The Election" With Honest Reference To Economic Collapse & Inferred Palin Momentum

- Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that if not for the economic collapse surrounding the 2008 presidential race, Sen. John McCain might have beat President Barack Obama.
"The truth of the matter is, Barack knows it, I know, had the economy not collapsed around your ears, John, in the middle of literally, as things were moving, I think you probably would have won," Biden said during the annual Sedona forum at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.
