Sarah Palin has Radical Ties to Alaskan Independence Party, Husband Todd "Shadow Governor" Palin was a Member

Well John McCain and Sarah Palin keep the attacks coming on Barack Obama’s seemingly miniscule contact with William Ayers, yet they have somehow neglected to look at her own ties to a radical organization and the involvement of none other than her husband, Todd “Shadow Governor” Palin. I came across an article written by Robert Kennedy Jr. on the Huffington Post. Here’s the article in its entirety:

Alaskan Independence Party: The Last Refuge of a Scoundrel

In 2004, America’s malleable mainstream media allowed itself to be manipulated by artful Republican operatives into devoting weeks of broadcast attention and drums of ink to unfairly desecrating John Kerry’s genuine Vietnam heroics while obligingly muzzling serious discussion of George W. Bush’s shameful wartime record of evasion and cowardice.

Last week found the American media once again boarding Republican swift boats against this season’s Democratic candidate armed with unfair and hypocritical attacks artfully designed by GOP strategists to distract attention from the cataclysmic outcomes of Republican governance. Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin has taken to faulting Senator Barack Obama for his casual acquaintance with a respected Illinois educator Bill Ayers, who forty years ago was a member of the Weathermen, a movement active when Obama was eight and which he has denounced as “detestable.” Palin argues that the relationship proves that Obama sees “America as being so imperfect that he is palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.”

The Times dedicated a page one article to Obama’s relations with Ayers and CNN’s Anderson Cooper obliged Palin by rewarding her reckless accusations about Obama’s patriotism with a major investigative report. Fox, meanwhile, is still riveting its audience with wall to wall coverage of this pressing irrelevancy.

But if McCarthy-era guilt-by-association is once again a valid political consideration, Palin, it would seem, has more to lose than Obama. Palin, it could be argued, following her own logic, thinks so little of America’s perfection that she continues to “pal around” with a man–her husband, actually–who only recently terminated his seven-year membership in the Alaskan Independence Party. Putting plunder above patriotism, the members of this treasonous cabal aim to break our country into pieces and walk away with Alaska’s rich federal oil fields and one-fifth of America’s land base–an area three-fourths the size of the Civil War Confederacy.
AIP’s charter commits the party “to the ultimate independence of Alaska,” from the United States which it refers to as “the colonial bureaucracy in Washington.” It proclaims Alaska’s 1959 induction as a state “as illegal and in violation of the United Nations charter and international law.”

AIP’s creation was inspired by the rabidly violent anti-Americanism of its founding father Joe Vogler, “I’m an Alaskan, not an American,” reads a favorite Vogler quote on AIP’s current website, “I’ve got no use for America or her damned institutions.” According to Vogler AIP’s central purpose was to drive Alaska’s secession from the United States. Alaska, says current Chairwoman Lynette Clark, “should be an independent nation.”

Vogler was murdered in 1993 during an illegal sale of plastic explosives that went bad. The prior year, he had renounced his allegiance to the United States explaining that, “The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government.” He cursed the stars and stripes, promising, “I won’t be buried under their damned flag…when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home.” Palin has never denounced Vogler or his detestable anti-Americanism.

Palin’s husband Todd remained an AIP party member from 1995 to 2002. Sarah can be described in McCarthy-era palaver as a “fellow traveler.” While retaining her Republican registration, she attended the AIP’s 1994 convention where the party called for a draft constitution to secede from the United States and create an independent nation of Alaska. The McCain Campaign has reluctantly acknowledged that she also attended AIP’s 2000 Convention. She apparently found the experience so inspiring that she agreed to give a keynote address at the AIP’s 2006 convention and she recorded a video greeting for this year’s 2008 convention. In other words, this is not something that happened when she was eight!

So when Palin accuses Barack of “not seeing the same America as you and me,” maybe she is referring to an America without Alaska. In any case, isn’t it time the media start giving equal time to Palin’s buddy list of anti-American bombers and other radical associates?

Todd Palin Had Unusual Access to Governor Sarah Palin’s Top Aides, Claims She Didn’t Know

Todd Palin finally realized that he didn’t have a leg to stand on and decided to comply with the subpoena. Todd Palin and Gov. Palin’s top aides said that the governor was kept in the dark while her husband repeatedly asked top state officials to help get his former brother-in-law kicked off the state police force. Right. Who is the bigger fool in all this? I am sure she knew what was going on. But wait, it gets better…..

Lawmakers were scheduled to meet Friday and release a report on the case, which could shed light on how Palin governs and what role her husband played in her administration. Yep, seems like we have a “shadow governor” and a potential “shadow vice president.” It seems that the affidavits may help to bolster Sarah Palin’s defense, but they may reveal that her husband met repeatedly with her aides about family affairs. That basically tells me that the governor isn’t really in charge of things, her husband is. It also reinforces the fact that she is far from ready for the vice presidency, let alone the presidency. People were worried that Bill Clinton would overshadow his wife if she was the Democratic candidate for the White House. At least he had tons of experience. What is Todd Palin’s claim to fame? Did he even go to college? Does a commercial fisherman qualify one to be a governor, even a shadow governor?
“I have heard criticism that I am too involved in my wife’s administration,” Todd Palin wrote in his affidavit. “My wife and I are very close. We are each other’s best friend. I have helped her in her career the best I can, and she has helped me.” Geez, so how come she didn’t know you were going behind her back trying to get the guy fired? Todd Palin had an extraordinary level of access to a variety of the governor’s top aides. That is a clear conflict of interest and should never have happened or been allowed. Did the voters of Alaska elect Todd Palin to be their governor?
According to media reports, during his testimony, he told emotional stories about Wooten threatening and emotionally abusing his family. He said he talked to anyone who would listen. He gave them photos and documents, which they forwarded to others in the administration, and he questioned how Wooten kept his job. Even Gov. Palin’s special assistant, Ivy Frye, said she was distraught when she was told about the situation. “I’ve felt empathy for the Palin and Heath families in having to endure harassment, intimidation, threats and abuse from a former family member,” Frye wrote. But Frye said she never talked about it with the governor or mentioned the idea of asking Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan to fire Wooten. Right.
Todd Palin said he never pressured anyone– including his wife. In fact, he says that after talking about the matter with her repeatedly, she finally told him to “drop it.””Anyone who knows Sarah knows she is the governor and she calls the shots,” Todd Palin wrote. “I make no apologies for wanting to protect my family and wanting to publicize the injustice of a violent trooper keeping his badge.” Right, so why was he so adamant about meeting with her top aides despite her position on the issue? The bottom line is that Todd Palin’s behavior will be the very same if his wife becomes the vice president of America. He will be the “shadow VP.” Can we afford to have a whole bunch of idiots running the White House and still retain our dignity in the world? I don’t think so. Be very wary of the “Shadow Governor” of Alaska, who once belonged to a separatist party. Be very wary….

Madonna Tells Gov. Sarah Palin To Stay Off Her Street, Mocks Palin’s Accent and Todd "Shadow Governor" Palin

Madonna’s back in the news again. This time she’s giving Gov. Sarah “pitbull in lipstick” Palin a warning: “Sarah Palin can’t come to my party. Sarah Palin can’t come to my show.” I seriously doubt Sarah Palin would, but hey, you never know what people like.

After telling thousands of fans at the New Jersey’s Izod Center on Saturday night, the queen of pop continued to make digs aimed at the wannabe veep at her Madison Square Garden show Tuesday night. Madonna perform a string of hits including “I Love New York.” The song features the line, “Get off my street,” at which point, Madonna shouted, “You know who can get off of my street? Sarah Palin! I’m gonna kick her ass if she don’t get off of my street!”

Clearly getting into the groove with her anti-Palin rant, the 50-year-old superstar then mocked the Alaskan governor’s accent, before sarcastically telling the audience, “I love her.” Madonna was on a roll. Even Palin’s husband Todd didn’t escape Madonna’s wrath, as she shouted, “This is the sound of Sarah Palin’s husband’s snowmobile when it won’t start up in the wintertime,” before creating some ear-piercing feedback on her electric guitar as she launched into hit single “Hung Up.”No stranger to controversy, Madonna has already raised eyebrows on her current world tour by projecting images of Barack Obama next to Mahatma Gandhi, while juxtaposing John McCain with Adolf Hitler. Wow, can you tell that Madonna hates McCain and Palin!

John McCain Campaign Hits Lowest Moment, Sought Out John Murtagh To Attack Obama On Ayers Connection

John McCain is in dire straits and his campaign is faltering and going nowhere fast. He has hit the lowest point in his political career and his campaign. He continues to engage in negative campaigning, which is clearly a turn-off to many voters, specifically the Independents. Well, he sunk to the lowest level yesterday when his campaign sought out and enlisted the help of John Murtagh a Yonkers city councilman and GOP state Senate candidate. This was a deliberate move to try to smear Barack Obama, but I think it was in vain. Murtagh’s comments included the line “Obama’s ex-Weather Underground “friend” would just as soon have blown one up.”

You see, Murtagh was referring to a 1970 firebombing of his family’s upper Manhattan home, when his father, New York State Supreme Court Justice John Murtagh, was presiding at a trial of Black Panther radicals. The Weather Underground was suspected in the attack, although no one was caught. “Barack Obama may have been a child when William Ayers was plotting attacks against U.S. targets – but I was one of those targets,” Murtagh said in the statement. What is ironic is that Murtagh was nine and Obama, eight years old. “Barack Obama’s friend tried to kill my family,” he concluded. A desperate move and a low blow.

Obama fired back on ABC News later: “Why don’t we just clear it up right now: The notion that somehow [Ayers] has been involved in my campaign, that he is an adviser of mine, that … I’ve ‘palled around with a terrorist,’ all these statements are made simply to try to score cheap political points.” Obama has had only sporadic associations with Ayers, a distinguished professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, since meeting him in the 1990s. I wonder why John McCain fails to realize that he is fighting a losing battle on that front. Didn’t they accuse Bill Clinton of draft-dodging, smoking marijuana and flaunted a line of women with whom he supposedly had affairs? Where did that get the right wing? Eight years of Bill Clinton in the White House.

Murtagh, who wrote about the attack in a Daily News Op-Ed in April, said the McCain campaign tracked him down last week. “The issue is really not an attempt on my family’s life. The issue is Barack Obama’s judgment,” Murtagh told The News. Really? This is an act of desperation that is bound to fail.

Wade Williams, 75, Threatens Voter Officials Over Tardy Registration Card, Says "Keep this N****r Out Of Office"

This fool, Wade Williams, 75, angered by a delay in the receipt of his voter registration card, threatened to shoot Louisiana election officials, claiming that he urgently needed to cast a ballot to “keep the nigger out of office.” He was arrested on a felony terrorizing charge after allegedly calling the Registrar of Voters and warning that he would come to the state office and empty his shotgun unless he got his registration card.

According to media reports, using profanity and racial slurs, he told a state official “about needing to vote to ‘keep the nigger out of office,” according to an Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office affidavit. Though the document does not name the candidate to which Williams is so violently opposed, it seems likely he was referring to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

According to the Smoking Gun, after being arrested at his Monroe home, Williams was booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center. En route to the jail, he “continued his ‘tirade’ about niggers and also stated that he had a shotgun, but had it hidden at his residence,” reported Lt. Michael Judd.

What a raging lunatic. At 75 the last place this man needs to be is in jail, but they ought to keep his sorry a** there for a long time. Let’s see what he’ll do if Barack Obama wins the elections. Again I have to ask the question, since when does being a white male an automatic pass to the White House?

Feds Launch Investigation Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott Whether He Broke the Law Campaigning For John McCain

It’s one thing to campaign for a political candidate, but it opens up a whole can of worms when you are a sheriff and you do it on the job. Well, Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott may have more to worry about than just the court of public opinion. Federal investigators are now looking into whether Scott broke the law by campaigning for John McCain. Clearly from the mere fact of emphasizing Barack Obama’s middle name “Hussein” he was trying to inject race into his speech and thereby trying to link the name with terrorist. That was just wrong.

Officials with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel say they have received so many phone calls from the public that they launched an investigation into Sheriff Scott on Tuesday. The bottom line is that Scott had no right standing on the John McCain soapbox while he was in his uniform.

The question is – did he use his position as sheriff to influence an election? If so, he could be in violation of a federal election law called the Hatch Act.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office receives more than $1 million in federal grant money from everything from human trafficking to bullet proof vests.

But if Sheriff Scott is found in violation of the Hatch Act, the feds can pull two years salary worth of federal funding – the equivalent to $300,000 for the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. Or, they could just remove him from office.

Regarding the federal investigation, Sheriff Scott sent us this statement:

“I am on duty 24/7 and 365 whether in or out of uniform. Like every other elected official, I am aware of from President to Governor to State Representatives, etc. We engage in political activities whether for ourselves as candidates or for others. As of this writing, I am unaware of having done anything to generate all this attention other than using the senator’s full name.” He’s missing the point, he did it on the job and in his uniform. What gives him the right to do as he pleases in that regard? Clearly he was in the wrong. Whether he was campaigning for Barack Obama, I would come to the same conclusion.

Bill Cameron in Charlotte County and Kevin Rambosk in Collier County were both reassigned to avoid violating the Hatch Act. Cameron is still under investigation.As for how long Scott’s investigation will take, the feds say they’d like to have all of the Hatch Act cases wrapped up before the November election.
