News You Won't Hear From the LameStream Media

Another ethics complaint against Gov. Palin dismissed
The governor's office said the dismissal by a representative of the Alaska Personnel Board is the 14th ethics complaint against Palin or her staff to be resolved with no finding that the Executive Branch Ethics Act was violated.
Not just another, the 14th, and so far the score is 14-0 for Sarah Palin. Of course it's cost her over $500K to defend against such fraudulent charges.

Ironically, if that's not unethical attempted abuse of the ethics enforcement system for persecutory reasons then I don't know what is. The amount of fear and hatred she engenders from liberal left and country-club center continues to both amaze me, and to encourage me that she represents the way the country should be going.

On a related note: Palin helps NY town celebrate Alaska purchase
More than 20,000 people turned out to see the former Republican vice presidential candidate lead a parade through downtown Auburn and sign a proclamation on the steps of City Hall honoring Seward as "the one person most responsible for Alaska."
I heard a report on the radio from someone who happened to be in Auburn at the same time as this event for other reasons. The caller was amazed at the number of people that came from as far away as Ohio, Michigan and Rhode Island just to see and hear Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin obviously continues to have a populist appeal to that cannot be denied. I pray the Republican Party wakes up to reality that conservative, not liberal, is where we need to go as a party and a country, and fully supports Mrs. Palin with that message.

Kick the traitors out: Sarah Palin for 2012!

Who's Your Daddy

U.S. blocking Israeli access to U.S. fighter-jets
The Obama administration has imposed obstacles on Israeli efforts to procure U.S.-origin fighter-jets.

Administration sources said the White House has drafted measures that could prevent Israel and other non-NATO allies from procuring U.S. fighter-jets, including the F-35. They said the administration would require that Israel obtain special permission from the Defense Department and State Department to acquire the Joint Strike Fighter.

The administration has also been resisting Israeli requests for technical data on the new F-15SE fighter-jet.

Administration blocks helicopters for Israel due to civilian casualties in Gaza
The Obama administration has blocked Israel's request for advanced U.S.-origin attack helicopters.

Government sources said the administration has held up Israel's request for the AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter.

Obama Approves Longbow For Egypt
The administration of President Barack Obama has notified Congress that
Egypt would receive the AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter in an $820
million deal. Congress, notified on the eve of Obama's visit to Cairo and
the Middle East, has 30 days to block the Egyptian request for the Longbow.
Note that these are the same helicopters being denied to Israel.

Barry, your bias is showing.

Sotomayor Exposed Continued

One of her overturned cases continues to build the picture of liberal judicial activist willing to interpret laws strictly or loosely to fit her agenda.

From "Sotomayor's Record Could Give Environmentalists Hope, Business Leaders Pause":
Sotomayor ruled that, according to the relevant statute, the EPA must consider the best technology available -- and cannot factor into the equation the billions it would cost businesses to comply.

"The statutory language requires that the ... selection ... be driven by technology, not cost," read the opinion from the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.
A ruling straight out of the radical environmental playbook based on the most narrow, torturous reading of the law.

Logically though the Supreme Court disagreed:
Writing for the majority, Justice Antonin Scalia noted that forcing compliance under Sotomayor's reasoning would make companies spend nine times the amount necessary to accomplish "nearly the same benefit to the environment that cheaper technologies would achieve."

"The EPA's current practice is a reasonable and hence legitimate exercise of its discretion to weigh benefits against costs ... We conclude that the EPA permissibly relied on cost-benefit analysis," the majority said in its April decision.
In this case, as in the Mahoney v. Cuomo case, she chose to interpret the law as narrowly as she could to further her agenda.

However, in other cases, like Ricci v. DeStefano, Gant v. Wallingford Board of Education, Makesko v. Correctional Services Corporation, Bartlett v. New York State Board of Law Examiners and E.E.O.C. v. J.B. Hunt Transport she has expanded the interpretation and scope of the law to further a liberal perspective. In most of these cases she exercised her "empathy" in making said decisions.

Just say no to identity politics; vote no Sonia.
