Sarah Palin: It Snowed In Alaska In May, So There Is No Global Warming

Huffington Post continues to selectively quote Palin

Sarah Palin: It Snowed In Alaska In May, So There Is No Global Warming

Global warming isn't happening, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) argued over the weekend, pointing to the fact that it was snowing in Alaska in May.
"Global warming my gluteus maximus," she wrote in a post on her Facebook page, adding a small dose of politics to a picture of her youngest daughter Piper in the snow after graduation. "This is what 'Grad Blast' means in Alaska! We'll move our graduation b-b-q indoors and watch the mini-blizzard from 'round the fireplace."
Palin has been a reliable denier of climate science in the past. She's referred to studies supporting climate change models as "snake oil," and as a vice presidential candidate in 2008, she argued that humans haven't influenced changes in climate.
In her Facebook argument, Palin confuses weather with climate, a mistake frequently made by climate change deniers. Palin has made this blunder in the past, suggesting that local atmospheric conditions over short periods of time and small areas have bearing on larger trends averaged over long time periods and greater areas.
Palin's post comes as a new study shows global temperatures to be heating more slowly than previously thought, but at a rate that could still cause catastrophic damage if not addressed. From a Reuters report on the new research:
Extreme global warming is less likely in coming decades after a slowdown in the pace of temperature rises so far this century, an international team of scientists said on Sunday. Warming is still on track, however, to breach a goal set by governments around the world of limiting the increase in temperatures to below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial times, unless tough action is taken to limit rising greenhouse gas emissions.

Sarah Palin is right on in "her" State of the Union speech

From Beaufort Observer:  Sarah Palin is right on in "her" State of the Union speech
We think Sarah Palin hit the nail on the head in "her" State of the Union address: Here is how Tony Lee reported it at
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin wrote Wednesday that America is a nation being bankrupt by a federal government led by "venal politicians" in her response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address.

"What is the true state of our union? Though this may sound harsh, I'll speak the truth here," Palin wrote. "We are a country going bankrupt to fund a bloated, distant, and often corrupt federal government led by venal politicians more concerned with paying off their campaign cronies and consolidating their own power than in preserving the constitutional republic that so many have fought and died for (including our brave men and women in uniform who were barely mentioned last night)."

Palin has assailed the "permanent political class" since her landmark speech in Indianola, Iowa in 2011 that introduced that language into the political bloodstream. Director Stephen K. Bannon and Peter Schweizer's Government Accountability Institute have assailed D.C. as a "boomtown" that produces nothing but continues to get wealthier by expanding the size and scope of government.

During the State of the Union address on Tuesday, Palin live-tweeted with the "#SOTUGottaBKiddingMe" hashtag, assailing Obama and Washington, D.C.'s permanent political class for their cronyism. After the speech, Palin called out Obama for not honoring slain ex-Navy Seal Chris Kyle or U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens during the address. After attending Kyle's funeral on Monday, Palin said Obama needed to "pay his respects" to the fallen American hero.

"So, do something. 2014 is just around the corner. Get motivated! Get organized. America, don't retreat. In the words of yet another White House program, 'Let's move.'"
"If you missed President Obama's State of the Union address last night, you didn't miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses," Palin wrote. "We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wouldn't 'increase our deficit by a single dime.'"

Palin also referenced Paul Krugman, "one of President Obama's economic cheerleaders at the New York Times," who last week was "remarkably candid" when he said "death panels and taxes is how we do this."

"But wait, I thought there'd be no such thing as 'death panels,' liberal liars?" Palin asked sardonically.

"This is the long-term forecast for the state of America under Obama's failed policies: middle class taxes and death panels," Palin wrote.

Left-wing politicians and journalists ridiculed Palin when she predicted the Affordable Care Act would lead to bureaucratic death panels rationing treatment. Politifact named "death panels" its Lie of the Year in 2009.

"Our country didn't weather a Revolution, two World Wars, a Civil War, a Great Depression, and countless other political and economic storms, just to be sunk by the dangerous policies of this current administration," Palin wrote. "We're stronger than this. As President Reagan said, 'I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.'"

Palin concluded by urging Republicans to get ready for the 2014 midterm elections: "So, do something. 2014 is just around the corner. Get motivated! Get organized. America, don't retreat. In the words of yet another White House program, 'Let's move.'"

Bill Maher Explains Why Sarah Palin Leaving Fox News Is Actually Bad News For The Left (VIDEO)


From Huff Post "Comedy":  Bill Maher Explains Why Sarah Palin Leaving Fox News Is Actually Bad News For The Left (VIDEO) 

Democrats might be happy that Sarah Palin will no longer be paid $1 million a year by Fox News, but based on what happened when Glenn Beck left the conservative network, Bill Maher isn't thrilled to see her go.
After Beck left Fox, he took his "patented brand of apocalyptic race baiting" to the Internet and started charging his audience around $10 a month. Then, in 2012, he made $80 million.
If Palin takes a cue from Beck or Rush Limbaugh, she too could make a lot more money off her fans than she did at Fox. But Maher feels that's exactly what makes these pundits "con men":
"They don't care about winning elections; they care about separating rubes from their money. They discovered that there's a fortune to be made by keeping a small portion of America under the illusion that they are always under attack, from Mexicans or ACORN or Planned Parenthood or gays or takers, global warming hoaxers; it doesn't matter. They don't want a majority; they want a mailing list, a list of the kind of gullible 'Honey Boo Boos' out there who think there's a 'War on Christmas' and the Socialist policies of our Kenyan President are so disastrous that the end of the world is coming."
Watch Maher's full "New Rule" for Palin above and leave your thoughts in the comments.

Bye-Bye, Sarah Palin

From US News and World Report:  Bye-Bye, Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin's days as a paid commentator for Fox News are over. This will mean a serious decline in media exposure for the former Alaska governor, and it raises doubts whether she can rise again to the level of a conservative national icon.
Palin says she was tired of preaching "to the choir" at Fox and wants a bigger platform. But chances are that she will never recover the extraordinary fame she enjoyed when she was named John McCain's vice presidential running mate on the Republican ticket in 2008. She drew huge audiences and vast media coverage, but many Americans concluded that Palin didn't know enough about the issues to be vice president.
After the 2008 election, Fox gave her a national platform as a commentator and for a while she retained a loyal following. But without a political office, a compelling message, or fresh ideas, Palin's stock sank and by the end of the 2012 presidential campaign she was not a factor.

She didn't elaborate on her plans, but Palin does have a political action committee that has $1.2 million in the bank, and she can use that money to travel and donate to conservative candidates. She told, a conservative web site, that she still wants to "shake up the GOP machine."

She said, "I encourage others to step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism. That means broadening our audience. I'm taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can't just preach to the choir. The message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience."

Palin, 48, also declared, "I was raised to never retreat and to pick battles wisely, and all in due season. When it comes to defending our republic, we haven't begun to fight."

Regarding the 2012 election, she was typically defiant. "Conservatism didn't lose," Palin said. "A moderate Republican candidate lost after he was perceived to alienate working class Reagan Democrat and independent voters who didn't turn out for him as much as they did for the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008."
Palin was paid an estimated salary of $1 million a year by Fox.

Chuck Heath Jr., Sarah Palin's Brother, Slams American Political 'Mess,' Proposes New Party

From HuffPost:  Chuck Heath Jr., Sarah Palin's Brother, Slams American Political 'Mess,' Proposes New Party 

Chuck Heath, Jr., brother of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, hinted he'd support the creation of a new political party featuring "persons of every race, religion, economic status, and whoever else is interested."
Health Jr. took to Facebook Monday to make the proposal:
"Let’s face it. As it stands now, it’s impossible to be elected to a high national office without being a part of the Republican or Democratic Party. I propose that the disgruntled citizens of the United States… Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians… persons of every race, religion, economic status, and whoever else is interested, join together and form a new party. I’d simply call it, the American Party."
Heath Jr. called America's current political system "a mess" and said it's causing the country to become "unraveled at the seams."
"The divisiveness between Republicans and Democrats seems insurmountable and it’s getting worse every day," he wrote.
He also stuck up for his sister, who he said has been "viciously attacked" because she wouldn't play the "very dirty game" of politics.
"She has always stuck to her principles and because of that, she is viewed as a threat," Heath Jr. wrote. "I’ve watched people in both major parties do everything they can to demean and destroy her."
Palin's brother isn't the first of the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate's family members to make recent headlines. Her daughter Bristol was in the news after she obtained a temporary restraining order against a man who allegedly sent her an engagement ring and a knife in the mail, and her son and sister-in-law are both going through divorces.
