she has no first language - Dick Cavett
Sarah Palin quotes
Sarah Palin has become the political equivalent
of Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. America regrets the one night
stand they had with Palin, but now she has broken into our house
and is ready to boil our bunny. Sarah Palin is Americas
ultimate political stalker. It all makes you wonder where Michael
Douglas is when we need him most.- Jason Easley, Politicus
"I hate this damn job." - Sarah Palin in an email to
staffer before resigning as governor
thoughts of Sarah Palin
'Its a difficult situation, this is that 3am White House
phone call and it seems for many of us trying to get that information
from our leader in the White House it it seems that that call
went right to um the answering machine. And nobody yet has, no
body yet has explained to the American public what they know,
and surely they know more than the rest of us know who it is
who will be taking the place of Mubarak and Im not real
enthused about what it is that thats being done on a national
level and from DC in regards to understanding all the situation
there in Egypt. And in these areas that are so volatile right
now because obviously its not just Egypt but the other
countries too where we are seeing uprisings, we know that now
more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the
White House. We need to know what it is that America stands for
so we know who it is that America will stand with. And we do
not have all that information yet."
Why does the media never mention
that Sarah Palin is America's first governor of more than 1200
since 1900 to desert her office in the first term for other than
reasons of impeachment, scandal, illness, or appointment to a
higher office? If she were elected president she would be the
first politcal deserter to hold that office.

is now apparently
a violation of the First Amendment.. Palin
told WMAL-AM that her criticism of Obama's associations,
like those with 1960s radical Bill Ayers and the Rev. Jeremiah
Wright, should not be considered negative attacks. Rather, for
reporters or columnists to suggest that it is going negative
may constitute an attack that threatens a candidate's free speech
rights under the Constitution, Palin said. "If [the media]
convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning, for
me to call Barack Obama out on his associations," Palin
told host Chris Plante, "then I don't know what the future

THE PALIN PATHOLOGY
SARAH PALIN PALS AROUND WITH ULTIMATE
Bruce Wilson, Huffington
Post - Sarah Palin endorser Bishop Thomas Muthee, in a speech
he gave before blessing and anointing Sarah Palin as a political
leader on October 16, 2005 at the Wasilla Assembly of God, laid
out the current agenda of the New Apostolic Reformation - how
"God's kingdom" needed to "infiltrate" seven
sectors of society. Muthee listed most of them: business and
finance, schools and education, media and entertainment, politics
Muthee also stated "The
Bible says the wealth of the wicked is stored up for the righteous.
Sarah Palin was in the audience. Minutes later, she was anointed,
and blessed, with the laying on of hands.
Thomas Muthee is an internationally
known celebrity in the New Apostolic Reformation and a personal
friend of the movement's head, C. Peter Wagner. In June 2006
Wagner proclaimed that "God has declared through His prophets
that the wealth of the wicked will be released to the Kingdom
of God," and declared, threateningly, "the enemies'
camp will be plundered."
The New Apostolic Reformation
is not a small movement: an apostle of C. Peter Wagner, one of
the 500 apostles in Wagner's International Coalition of Apostles,
owns what will be one of the tallest buildings in the world,
the Jakarta Tower. One of the NAR's branches is successfully
supplanting the Catholic Church in Brazil. The movement holds
international conferences on advancing Christian hegemony in
the business sector.
Two top leaders in the
New Apostolic Reformation, directors of "Spiritual Warfare"
networks who hold other high level positions in the NAR are now
definitively tied to Sarah Palin: at her entrance into politics
at 24 and her emergence onto the national stage, as Alaska governor,
in late 2006. There is considerable circumstantial evidence for
the case that Sarah Palin is still in Mary Glazier's prayer warrior
/ spiritual warfare network.
A new 36 page report from
an independent research team that has specialized in studying
Sarah Palin's faith, contains ground breaking information on
a religious movement Sarah Palin is tied to and which advocates
that its members "plunder" the wealth of the "godless".
Wagner detailed his religiously
based wealth transfer scheme to power a theocratic takeover,
stating "I declare that this wealth will be distributed
for the extension of the Kingdom of God by the apostles that
God has set in the church." Wagner made clear that that
human agency would be a part of his wealth transfer scheme, and
Wagner specifically singled out the "godless":

PALIN'S CONNECTION WITH FAR RIGHT
BEYOND THE PALE WITH PALIN: SWEETHEART
Barrett, Village Voice - The #12.5 million sports complex and
hockey rink that is the lasting monument to Palin's two terms
as Wasilla mayor is also a monument to the kind of insider politics
that dismays Americans of both parties. Six months before Palin
stepped down as mayor in October 2002, the city awarded nearly
a half-million-dollar contract to design the biggest project
in Wasilla history to Kumin Associates. Blase Burkhart was the
Kumin architect on the job - the son of Roy Burkhart, who is
frequently described as a "mentor" of Palin and was
head of the local Republican Party (his wife, June, who also
advised Palin, is the national committeewoman). Asked if the
contract was a favor, Roy Burkhart, who contributed to her campaign
in the same time frame that his son got http://www.villagevoice.com/2008-10-08/news/the-book-of-sarah/5the
contract, said: "I really don't know." Palin then named
Blase Burkhart to a seven-member builder-selection committee
that picked Howdie Inc., a mostly residential contractor owned
at the time by Howard Nugent. Formally awarded the contract a
couple of weeks after Palin left office, Nugent has donated $4,000
to Palin campaigns. Two competitors protested the process that
led to Nugent's contract. Burkhart and Nugent had done at least
one project together before the complex - and have done several
of subcontractors on the job, obtained by the Voice, includes
many with Palin ties. One was Spenard Builders Supply, the state's
leading supplier of wood, floor, roof, and other "pre-engineered
components." In addition to being a sponsor of Todd Palin's
snow-machine team that has earned tens of thousands for the Palin
family, Spenard hired Sarah Palin to do a statewide television
commercial in 2004. When the Palins began building a new family
home off Lake Lucille in 2002 - at the same time that Palin was
running for lieutenant governor and in her final months as mayor
- Spenard supplied the materials, according to Antoine Bricks,
who works in its Wasilla office. Spenard actually filed a notice
"of its right to assert a lien" on the deed for the
Palin property after contracting for labor and materials for
the site. Spenard's name has popped up in the trial of Senator
Stevens - it worked on the house that is at the center of the
VECO scandal as well.
told Fox News that he built the two-story, 3,450-square-foot,
four-bedroom, four-bath, wood house himself, with the help of
contractors he described as "buddies." As mayor, Sarah
Palin blocked an effort to require the filing of building permits
in the wide-open city, and there is no public record of who the
"buddies" were. The house was built very near the complex,
on a site whose city purchase led to years of unsuccessful litigation
and, now, $1.3 million in additional costs, with a law firm that's
also donated to Palin collecting costly fees from the city.
and Joanne Smith, the principals of complex subcontractor DJ
Excavation & Development, have donated $7,100 to Palin and
her allied candidate Charlie Fannon (Joanne is a Palin appointee
on the state Board of Nursing). Sheldon Ewing, who owns another
complex subcontractor, Weld Air, has donated $1,300, and PN&D,
an engineering firm on the complex, has contributed $699.
was one of the few sports-complex contractors, aside from Spenard,
willing to address the question of whether he worked on the house
as well, but he had little to say: "I doubt that it occurred,
but if it did indirectly, how would I know anyhow?" The
odd timing of Palin's house construction - it was completed two
months before she left City Hall and while she and Todd Palin
were campaigning statewide for the first time - raises questions,
especially considering its synergy with the complex.
David Talbot recently visited the complex, which, he said, resembled
"a huge airplane hangar" so far away from the city's
center that kids can't bike or walk there. It's adorned by a
plaque commemorating Palin. Even as a governor, she is still
such a champion of the complex - which loses money every year
- that she just steered state funding for a new kitchen to it.

SECESSIONISTS THAN OBAMA WAS TO AYERS
TPM Election Central - Sarah Palin attacked Obama's patriotism
over his association with former Weatherman Bill Ayers -- a move
that makes it perfectly legitimate to raise questions about the
Palins' associations with a group founded by an Alaska secessionist
who once professed his "hatred for the American government"
and cursed our "damn flag.". . .
husband, Todd Palin, was a member of this group, which continues
to venerate that founder to this day, for years. The group is
the Alaska Independence Party, which sees as its ultimate goal
seceding from the union. Todd was a member, with a brief exception,
from 1995 until 2002, according to the Division of Elections
Sarah Palin herself was apparently not a member of this group,
there's no doubt that she repeatedly courted this secessionist
organization over the years. In 1994, Palin attended the group's
annual convention, according to witnesses who spoke to ABC News'
Jake Tapper. The McCain campaign has confirmed she visited the
group's 2000 convention, and she addressed its convention this
year, as an incumbent governor whose oath of office includes
upholding the Constitution of the United States.
of the AIP was a man named Joe Vogler. Here's what he had to
say in a 1991 interview, only a few years before Palin attended
its convention: "The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared
to my hatred for the American government."
said this: "And I won't be buried under their damn flag.
I'll be buried in Dawson. And when Alaska is an independent nation
they can bring my bones home."
has also said: "I'm an Alaskan, not an American. I've got
no use for America or her damned institutions."
apologists will argue that Sarah Palin was not a member of this
group. But Obama wasn't a member of any Ayers anti-American group,
either. And again, Palin repeatedly courted the AIP, and her
husband was a member for years.

PALIN: AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER
SARAH PALIN'S CHURCH PART OF EXTREMIST
Wilson, Alternet - Sarah Palin's churches are actively involved
in a resurgent movement that was declared heretical by the Assemblies
of God in 1949. This is the same 'Spiritual Warfare' movement
that was featured in the award winning movie, "Jesus Camp,"
which showed young children being trained to do battle for the
Lord. At least three of four of Palin's churches are involved
with major organizations and leaders of this movement, which
is referred to as The Third Wave of the Holy Spirit or the New
Apostolic Reformation. The movement is training a young "Joel's
Army" to take dominion over the United States and the world.
Assembly of God church is deeply involved with both Third Wave
activities and theology. . . The pastor, Ed Kalnins, and Masters
Commission students have traveled to South Carolina to participate
in a "prophetic conference" at Morningstar Ministries,
one of the major ministries of the Third Wave movement. Becky
Fischer was a pastor at Morningstar prior to being featured in
the movie "Jesus Camp." . . .
Wave is a revival of the theology of the Latter Rain tent revivals
of the 1950s and 1960s led by William Branham and others. It
is based on the idea that in the end times there will be an outpouring
of supernatural powers on a group of Christians that will take
authority over the existing church and the world. The believing
Christians of the world will be reorganized under the Fivefold
Ministry and the church restructured under the authority of Prophets
and Apostles and others anointed by God. The young generation
will form "Joel's Army" to rise up and battle evil
and retake the earth for God.
segments of this belief system have been a part of Pentecostalism
and charismatic beliefs for decades, the excesses of this movement
were declared a heresy in 1949 by the General Council of the
Assemblies of God, and again condemned through Resolution 16
in 2000. . .
Wave, also known as the New Apostolic Reformation, is a network
of Apostles, many of them grouped around C. Peter Wagner, founder
of the World Prayer Center. This center, which was built in coordination
with Ted Haggard and his New Life Church in Colorado Springs,
was featured in an article by Jeff Sharlet in Harpers, May 2005,
"Soldiers of Christ." Sharlet was one of the first
to write in the secular press about the World Prayer Center which
is often referred to by those familiar with the Third Wave as
the 'Pentagon for Spiritual Warfare.' It features computer systems
that store the data of communities around the world, mapping
out unsaved peoples' groups and spiritual mapping information
for spiritual warfare. . .
top leaders often conduct spiritual warfare campaigns against
the demons that block the acceptance of their brand of Christian
belief, such as 'Operation Ice Castle' in the Himalayas in 1997.
Several of their top prophets and generals of intercession spent
weeks in intensive prayer to "confront the Queen of Heaven."
This queen is considered by them to be one of the most powerful
demons over the earth and is the Great Harlot of Mystery Babylon
in Revelation. (The "Great Harlot [or 'whore'] of Mystery
Babylon" theme also figures prominently in the sermons of
Texas megachurch pastor and Christians United For Israel founder
John Hagee, former endorser of John McCain's 2008 presidential
bid.) . . .
Wave movement is cross-denomination and is not synonymous with
any specific denomination, nor is it synonymous with Evangelical
or Fundamentalist. Although the movement emerged from Pentecostalism,
it draws its support from a variety of denominations and religious
streams. They believe they are forming a post-denominational
church to take the world for the end times. To date, all of the
writing and objections to this movement have emerged from other
Evangelicals and Fundamentalists who believe the movement to
be unbiblical. Also, it is other conservative churches that refuse
to embrace the 'outpouring of the Spirit' that are targets of
much of the anger of the movement.

she was once a member of their party, which since the 1970s has
been pushing for a legal vote for Alaskans to decide whether

States. And while McCain's motto -- as seen in a new TV ad --
is "Country First," the AIP's motto is the exact opposite
-- "Alaska First - Alaska Always."

for "reform to end the abuses of earmark spending."

the Church's preacher Ed Kalinins "preached that critics
of President Bush will be banished to hell; questioned whether
people who voted for Sen. John Kerry in 2004 would be accepted
to heaven; charged that the 9/11 terrorist attacks and war in
Iraq were part of a war 'contending for your faith;' and said
that Jesus 'operated from that position of war mode.' [Said Kilinins],
"What you see in Iraq, basically, is a manifestation of
what's going on in this unseen world called the spirit world.
We need to think like Jesus thinks. . . Jesus called us
to die. You're worried about getting hurt? He's called us to
address to the church three months ago, Palin also used disconcertingly
religious language to frame the conflict in Iraq: "Pray
for our military men and women who are striving to do what is
right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national
leaders, are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from
God," she exhorted the congregants. "That's what we
have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan
and that that plan is God's plan."
PALIN COULDN'T RUN A CAR WASH,
LET ALONE A WHOLE COUNTRY
Mosk, Washington Post -- In addition to being a mayor and raising
four children, Sarah Palin found time for another venture in
her Wasilla years -- she was part-owner of an Anchorage car wash.
Palin and husband Todd each held a 20 percent stake in Anchorage
Car Wash LLC, according to state corporation records filed in
of Palin's gubernatorial disclosure filings indicates that she
failed to report her stake in the company on the form that requires
candidates for governor to disclose any interest in a non-publicly
traded company. . .
11, 2007 letter to the governor's business partner advises that
the car wash had "not filed its biennial report and/or paid
its biennial fees," which were more than a year overdue.
The warning letter was written on state letterhead, which carried
Palin's name at the top, next to the state seal.
3, 2007, the state went further and issued a "certificate
of involuntary dissolution" because of the car wash's failure
to file its report and pay state licensing fees.
PALIN LIED ABOUT BRIDGE TO NOWHERE
UK - Sarah Palin's record in office is facing increasing scrutiny
after it emerged that she misled Republican supporters when she
was presented to the nation as Senator John McCain's running
told a cheering audience in Ohio that she had turned down an
offer from the US Congress to build the so-called "Bridge
to Nowhere", which would have connected Gravina Island with
Ketchikan International, an airport in Alaska's southeast serving
just 200,000 passengers a year. Mr McCain routinely cites the
project as a symbol of wasteful central government spending.
introduced herself to Republicans and the American public on
Friday, the virtually unknown Mrs Palin said: "I championed
reform to end the abuses of earmark spending by Congress. In
fact, I told Congress ... 'thanks, but no thanks' on that bridge
to nowhere. If our state wanted a bridge, I said we'd build it
it emerged that in a 2006 interview with the Anchorage Daily
News during her gubernatorial campaign, Mrs Palin had a different
view of the bridge.
"would you continue state funding for the proposed Knik
Arm and Gravina Island bridges?" she replied: "Yes.
I would like to see Alaska's infrastructure projects built sooner
rather than later. The window is now - while our congressional
delegation is in a strong position to assist."
MEET PALIN'S PASTORS
Ken Silverstein and Sebastian
Jones, Harpers - During the 2008 campaign the beliefs of various
candidates' pastors has attracted a great deal of attention,
especially the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, as well as John Hagee,
who endorsed John McCain. So now seems a good time to examine
the viewpoints of Sarah Palin's two most recent pastors, as expressed
in their sermons.
Since becoming governor
in 2006, Palin has attended the Juneau Christian Center, where
Mike Rose serves as senior pastor. Her previous pastor was David
Pepper of the Church on the Rock in Palin's hometown of Wasilla
- a church that "was kind of a foundation for her.".
