Why is Palin raising McCain?

Some people have an extraordinary ability to resist both facts and the lessons of hard experience. What else could explain their stubborn insistence that Sarah Palin can simply be trusted to lead and speak for the grassroots uprising against socialism. This weekend she is in Arizona trying to use her supposed “rock-star” conservative status to rescue John McCain from the wrath of people he has consistently betrayed. On border security, illegal immigration, amnesty for illegals, bankrupt bank bailouts, unfair trade agreements, conservative judicial appointments, the defense of marriage and the unalienable right to life McCain is clearly positioning himself to be the Arlen Specter of the West. He’s also the author of campaign finance regulations clearly aimed at freeing incumbents of every stripe from the threat of effective grassroots challenges to their tenure. When he’s up for re-election he mouths conservative lyrics. But once that ritual is over with, he marches to the beat of a different and decidedly self-serving drum.

Grassroots people riled at the ongoing destruction of the American way of life may be tempted to put their hope in Sarah Palin. But it makes sense to assume that they’re doing it so that she’ll be in a better position to save the nation from bankruptcy and the constitution from destruction. It hardly makes sense to think they want her to save one of the most powerful and effective Republican double agents in the ongoing elite subversion of the constitutional republic. Of course, she’s only doing it out of respect for the man whose choice of a running mate in the last presidential election gave her the chance to shine in the national limelight. Gratitude is, after all, one of the becoming graces.

One would think, though, that her gratitude to McCain would be outweighed by gratitude to the grassroots folks drawn to her despite his camp’s backstabbing attempts to demean her throughout the 2008 campaign; and the prolife and moral conservatives drawn to her despite the inconsistencies in her record on the great issues of moral principle; and the defenders of U.S. sovereignty drawn to her despite her McCain-like support for laxity and a ready path to citizenship for illegal immigrants.   Her gratitude to them could have impelled her to stay out of the way of their wholly justified efforts to take back the seat of power McCain has abused while serving in their name. Instead she does exactly what one would expect her to do if the whole saga of her rise to prominence were just another effort of the RINO GOP leadership to divert the anger and energy of committed grassroots conservatives behind a leader who will obligingly use the influence that results to benefit the kind of people who made them angry in the first place.

All this would be just another chance to learn from hard experience, but this time the whole fate of the republic is being weighed in the balance. Many people now agree that the 2010 elections will probably be the last fair chance to stymie the elite subversion of liberty for which the Obama faction is just the cutting edge. If that’s true, the RINO strategy of diversion has to work just once more.  Why give in to blind enthusiasm for any of the leaders who have been served up by the business as usual workings of the existing political process?  Wouldn’t it be wiser to examine their actions with greater than usual wariness?  Why blame people who counsel caution, and offer analyses that prod us to think things through? Wouldn’t it be wiser to do so, while there’s still time to avoid the pitfall and to seek a true rallying point for what’s shaping up to be the decisive political stand for our liberty, our sovereignty and our posterity?

    McCain’s behavior on the POW/MIA issue is reprehensible. From sneaking in legislation that removed penalties for POW/MIA officials who deliberately withhold records from POW/MIA next-of-kin, to trashing families and other former POWs who bring forward valid questions and information , and to his support of POW/MIA government fraud, McCain has showed himself to be unfit to represent the people.

    After my enthusiasm about Palin right after she was chosen by McCain I began to wonder why she chose to accept McCains offer if she were really conservative. People need to open their eyes. Of course the media calls her a staunch right winger so people just believe it. People just don’t think.

    I believe Palin is now showing her “true colors”,and they are not red,white and blue.She seems to be exactly like the other RINO’S that we have come accustomed to electing for office.McCain,when it gets close to re-election automatically turns on the “conservative charm” and starts acting like a conservative should act like.Then when enough people have been stricken with memory loss and elect him he goes back to his “Washington ways”.Palin has got to know this,see this but yet she still supports him.This tells me that she is no different from the others and should be showed the same “door”as the others will hopefully be shown.

    It sure seems that she is a RINO.

    It would be quite a suprise if it turns out she is now using McCain, in the way McCain and his staff used her.

    Is she that smart …or dumb to try?

    I tell people about you everyday. I found it odd that there are a lot of people that don’t know who you are. And then they’re shocked (with delight) when they find out where you stand. You are exactly what our country needs. I’ve never been involved in campaigns (of any kind) but I want to help you with what ever you decide to do. I ready to go full bore.

    I doubt that gratitude is the precise term for Palin’s motive here. It is simply blind loyalty. Well, I have said before that Palin is too trusting, which she proved abundantly by accepting a place on the McCain presidential ticket. That she has allowed her proper suspicious to be allayed by a few polite words from McCain despite the calculated treachery she suffered at the hands of his minions is not heartening but it is hardly surprising. Basically, she is a cheerleader, not a leader. She does not have the confidence to independently espouse policies of her own devising, no matter her credentials as a common American.

    How many do? In this race, every entrenched Republican incumbent ought to retire in favor of a genuine conservative if they wish to show their sincerity. How many have? There must be a national rejection of the corrupt status quo if there is to be any hope of restoring Constitutional government, will anyone in the government take the obvious course of action rather than grasp at their accrued privilege?

    But regardless of what men may do, this flow cannot be reversed.

    • IONU March 28, 2010, 1:00 pm

      Sadly, you are correct, Chiu. The flow cannot be reversed – the dam has already burst.

      FDR “saved” us from the Great Depression (which, incidentally, was engineered by his globalist handlers). Hitler “saved” the Germans and Austrians, but who is going to save us now? Some think it’s Obama, others think it’s the RINO’s.

      But as you write in your other post, we have already been saved, if only we had eyes to see it and ears to hear it.

    My answer to your headline: Because she agrees with him.

  • Sue March 27, 2010, 9:36 pm

    Dr. Keyes…thank you, thank you, thank you!
    I have been asking this same question about Sarah Palin for months! Folks just refuse to see her with open eyes! This woman does not truly represent grass roots conservative issues, her actions and words betray her!

  • JoAnn Carney March 27, 2010, 7:40 pm

    I would like very much for Mr. Keyes to run again for president. He will always have my vote.
