Palin drops the other shoe

Recently I ran across a video interview in which Sarah Palin enthusiastically declares “I support Michael Steele…I think he’s doing a great job. Michael Steele is an outsider. The machine, I think, is tough to penetrate–I think it’s been good to have an independent outsider trying to create some change in the Republican Party.”

Michael Steele has from the first day of his tenure been a spokesman for the RINO, pro-abortion, amoral, ‘money is god’ elite minority that presently controls the Republican Party. The statement that Steele is an outsider is an outright lie. He has for some years now made himself the tool of the elite RINO clique. There’s only one sense in which Steele is an outsider. He’s outside the purview of the conservative views of the pro-life, God-fearing grassroots’ majority of the GOP’s voting base.

Last week Steele went so far as to validate Obama’s ugly abuse of the racism charge. To cover what he himself admits to be his “mistakes” he paired himself with Obama as a black being judged by a higher standard than whites. Obama has lied, broken every election promise, hidden all aspects of his background and never been called to account. No politician in American history has been held to a lower standard of accountability. So what is Steele talking about? Just like Obama and his verbal terrorists, Steele brandishes the charge of racism in order to intimidate his critics, and distract from the fact that their criticisms have a solid basis in fact. This gives aid and comfort to some of the worst elements of the Obama faction’s media and political thugs. Will Steele stop at nothing in the effort to protect himself and silence his critics? How then does he differ from the arrogant Obama intimidators that as RNC Chairman he purports to oppose?

He imitates the Obama faction verbal terrorists, and Sarah Palin’s response is to praise him for doing a good job. How can people who claim to be conservative go on blinding themselves to the truth about Sarah Palin? Just as they did when she was governor of Alaska, her actions belie her superficially constructed conservative image. In the critical area of her personnel choices she blithely promotes the wrong people, as she did when, as Governor, she boasted about putting a pro-abortion Planned Parenthood leader on the Alaska Supreme Court. Now she backs McCain, and heaps prevaricating praise on Michael Steele, though the words and actions of both men confirm their deficiency in anything that more than superficially resembles sincere, consistent conservative principle.

If Sarah Palin was authentically committed to the restoration of political integrity Tea Party people long for, she would be calling for Steele’s resignation, not trying to use her popularity to shield him. I’m sure my words will merit shushing and the usual rotten tomatoes from people once again determined to hand the RINO GOP leadership another triumph of hope over experience.  Do Sarah Palin’s supporters want people to treat her the way the Obama’s media claque treats him? Are we to be mesmerized by her words, but by no means analyze her actions? This kind of mentality herded people into supporting the betrayal of conservatism that characterized the locust eaten years of the Bush faction’s preeminence. It’s what created the void that Obama stepped into. The last thing America needs is more of the same, sweetened with a change of gender.

Sarah Palin’s actions more and more confirm that she is pure and simply a ‘Judas goat’. Her assignment is to gain some credibility with the disaffected conservatives in the GOP’s grassroots base, then lead them over to RINOs like McCain and Steele (or Mitt Romney and Mitt Romney clones like Scott Brown.) She is a fabrication of the GOP’s elite RINO leadership; a tool intended to help them survive what would otherwise be their certain political demise in the tidal wave of anger that is poised to sweep socialists, liberals, RINOs, CINOs (conservatives in name only) and other liberty threatening flotsam and jetsam out of their seats of power and influence. If this is the objective of the move to make Palin an icon of the Tea Party movement, many of the anguished, deeply sincere people who are pouring their hearts and hopes into the movement are simply being set up for another episode of heartbreak and betrayal, and this perhaps the last. If they truly wish to save America’s liberty, they should first take care to save themselves this disappointment. It may be we have but one more shot at stopping the elitist juggernaut that means to overturn America’s democratic republic. We must aim to make it count.

    Good article – although I would take issue that Obama has broken “every” election promise. Very definitive and incorrect. He has implemented quite a lot of his promises. You may disagree with them all (perfectly reasonable to do so) but you cannot say he hasn`t done what he said he would do. He said there would be healthcare reform, he said income taxes for the majority of Americans would be cut.

      There has been no health care reform- just a cynical Obama faction power grab. What tax cut are you talking about? You’re not seriously saying that letting the Bush tax cuts expire somehow cuts taxes? Or that a tax on people who don’t purchase health insurance is a tax cut? You must think people are awfully stupid. I don’t. They’re rejecting Obama because this would-be emperor has no clothes (except the ones he buying with borrowed Chinese money?.)

    I’m sure most Palin supporters mean well but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The “Palin Movement” holds about as much promise as the “Hope & Change” movement.

    I ran across something I had never heard of – a “blog community.” There is a blog, http://www.blogs4palin.blogspot.com, that is a clearinghouse for Palin bloggers. These seem like good Christian people, moms and families, who have been led down the primrose path.

    This is a new blog and I submitted the opening comment. What a waste of time and talent, these people are unwittingly making it more difficult to save our Republic.

    If anyone thinks it would help, we could direct the Palin bloggers to this site, or are they too emotionally invested in Palin?

    Someone I shared your article with, said she felt you went to far to compare Palin to a “Judas goat”, but based on what you wrote, and her history, along with the description below, I think you said it well.

    A Judas goat is a trained goat used at a slaughterhouse and in general animal herding. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them to a specific destination. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Judas goats are also used to lead other animals to specific pens and on to trucks.

    Dr. Keyes, It was my privilege to here you speak in Lexington, KY in January of this year. I was struck then, as I am now, how succinctly you are able to capture the truth of the matter. You explain the issue clearly, and divide away the lies with a clean cut.

    This article so perfectly describes the Sarah Palin I have taken note of since the election, and you have shared some information that I was unaware of which only solidifies my belief that she was yet another cloaked politician. Classic glad-hander with the ah-shucks charm that deceived so many conservative hearts.

    What evil pervades our land! I am very doubtful that we can salvage America now. Save for my faith in God, I would be terrified at what lies ahead. And even with my faith, it is hard not to shudder just a bit.

    Thank you for holding everyone accountable to the truth!
