MSNBC Host Martin Bashir Attacks Sarah Palin – Says She “Bragged” About Being Checked Out By Secret Service (Video)

By: Rachel Pulaski

Last week MSNBC host Martin Bashir claimed Romney was going to condemn himself to “eternal damnation”  for “lying” to Republicans while using the Book of Mormon.

Now he’s out attacking Sarah Palin…
Bashir says Sarah Palin was “bragging” about being checked out by Secret Service because she openly condemned the Secret Service agent’s actions. 
Mediaite reported:

Mediaite reported:

It was a short, possibly throwaway, but potentially dangerous comment to make about a victim of sexism in the workplace. Dangerous because Bashir commands an audience by virtue of a perch in national media, one from which he has effectively whitewashed completely disrespectful and inappropriate behavior as something to “brag about.” No rational person considers being objectified while on the job– particularly as serious a job as campaign for second in command of the free world– something to “brag” about. Being open about the experience of being thoroughly disrespected as person in general and woman in particular is not bragging, and to use such language to describe what Palin is doing here is to shift the burden of responsibility upon her. It is a more subtle and, perhaps because of this, more acceptable version of the “she asked for it” argument  Keep reading

    Obama has ties to radicals plotting chaos for NATO summit

    [In a sign of what may be coming, residents of a Chicago condo building
    located near the site of next month’s NATO summit have been asked to
    leave for the event or risk being caught in a storm of rioters.

    WND first reported in August 2011 that radicals, some with ties to
    President Obama, were planning to riot during the NATO summit.

    FOX Chicago News reported the people living in the 17-floor Library Tower
    building at 520 South State Street were warned in a letter from condo
    management that “we are STRONGLY recommending that all residents find
    places to stay during the conference from May 18 through May 21.”

    The letter specifically warned of riots:

    “In the event of a riot or the potential of one near the building, all access
    doors will be locked including the garage door,” the letter continues. “For
    everyone’s safety, we will be instructing anyone in the building to stay in
    his or her unit.”]

    People get all twisted up over everything these days. There are so many outrages, it is getting hard to keep score. That a SS agent “checked out” Palin was not professional conduct. That he posted it, was stupid. But my response to it all is, so what. Unless this guy was in Cartagena and was one involved in what is clearly, true misconduct, a reprimand and possibly some days off without pay would be punishment enough.

    Mark Steyn had a good article on this latest sexcapade.

  • Sasja

    I should have stated that it is “hard to keep track.”

    “true misconduct” should be “disgusting behavior”. My friends are editing my comments again. I hope this is not going to be one of those nights.

    Well, it is official this administration has lost their ever loving mind. This agent posted pictures on his phone and said: “I was really checking her out, if you know what i mean? Now, he was suppose to be protecting Governor Sarah Palin and she has ever right to call him out and moreover, she should testify if called on because her life could have been in danger.

    These Secret Service agents need to be CHECKED OUT BY SOMEONE WHO IS NOT SOME MISFIT. I almost could guarantee that these sleaze bag agent have done other things and I hope that Issa will investigate them thoroughly.

    Carney is a runt. And for him to weigh in is a disgrace. They need to shut up or put up. They are interfering NOW? When Sarah comes out and speaks about the Service member who is a disgrace to his profession.

    Checking Out Sarah Palin


    Today we live in a time when the presidency is held by a less mature figure, and conservatives are more generally looking to leadership in the Congress. Our own hopes rest with the law that created both the president and the Congress, and no figure keeps referring to it more than Mrs. Palin. It has become her mantra. There are those who ridicule this idea. But we’d reply, “check it out.”

    {…}Then Mrs. Palin made one of those segues for which she is famous, suggesting that what they should be checking out in Washington is “Article One, Section Nine, Clause Seven” of the Constitution.

    That’s why we keep writing about Mrs. Palin. Section nine of Article One of the Constitution is the section that lists the things the federal government can never do, and clause seven contains the famous phrasing about how “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.” Mrs. Palin’s point was that the Obama administration has been rattling along without a budget, in violation — in her view and ours — of this most basic slab of American bedrock. {..}

    Secret Service scandal distracts Jay Carney

    From what being a moron.

    “An advisor declined to describe Obama’s reaction, calling the media interest in the matter a ‘distraction.'” (L.A.Times Blogs)

    (Jay) Carney insisted the matter was more a distraction for the media than Obama. (Chicago Tribune)

    “We regret any distraction from the Summit of the Americas this situation has caused.” (Secret Service assistant director/Chicago Tribune)

    CHICAGO, April 15, 2012 — Did these people all get together and decide that distraction was the appropriate word to describe a scandal?

    Do presidential wordsmiths really believe the media’s interest in Secret Service agents patronizing prostitutes while on assignment abroad is just a “distraction?”

    Do they believe everyone is stupid? Never mind.

    A scandal that embarrasses an American president in a foreign land by extension embarrasses our country; it is not a just a distraction. It is a major story.

    Fast and Furious was a distraction. Solyndra was a distraction. The GSA conference in Las Vegas was a distraction. Hilary Rosen was a distraction. Every single scandal, inappropriate action, or statement by government personnel or campaign strategists is merely a distraction.

    This is the most distracted administration in history.

    This is the way the Obama administration rolls. “Just move on folks, nothing to see here. Please move on to the important stuff. The man behind the curtain is just a distraction.”

    If government officials were actually doing their jobs instead of creating distractions, maybe we could discuss substantive issues. These distracting scandals tell us a great deal about the way this administration operates. They are substantive, serious and grave.

    Government employees in foreign nations partying with prostitutes before a major conference are distractions? They are scandals. Where does the president find these propeller headed advisors who play with words?

This is not limited to political figures; even the members of (I kid you not) Insane Clown Posse say that he went to great lengths to edit their interview in a deceptive manner. Despite having absolutely zero interest in ICP’s music, somehow I’m willing to take their word over Bashir’s. (And it also makes me look at the “Michael Jackson was a pedophile” allegations in a new light, since Bashir was the one that really the ball started.

    Patty commented:

    “Carney: What I acknowledged yesterday is that speaking on Monday the president was not clearly understood by some people because he is a law professor, he spoke in shorthand.”

    Nope. Lawyers are unimpressed with Obama’s knowledge of Constitutional Law

    The man sounded like he’d never set foot in an American law school, or even took a civics course in high school. He would never have spoken the way he did if he had a grasp of the
    fundamentals of our system, not even from the perspective of an ordinary, non-college-educated citizen.

    That incident had nothing whatsoever to do with American law professors or Liberals. Barack Obama does not sound like one of us.

    I have encountered this kind of ignorance from people who are not from this country and who have never studied any law, much less American law. And yet, ordinary Americans know what their laws should be.

    I have also taught as a guest lecturer, in a law and engineering class at the undergraduate level in Chicago. These were not lawyers, but engineering students. One night I did a little experiment. I outlined the facts in a very ordinary slip-and-fall case, (person injured on icy sidewalk) and asked them “Who pays?”

    Within about thirty minutes, the class had chewed through all the basic considerations involved, and all I did was keep notes, and organize them a little bit on the blackboard. It was a very instructive night, for me. These were people only one or two years younger than typical first-year law students, and yet they were perfectly capable of reasoning through a case. At the time I concluded that one reason the students did so well was that this wasn’t a law school, and I didn’t look like a law professor, so they were free to think without having their knees shake.

    I know Americans understand American law, and it is offensive to me that the spokesman for the President of the United States would dare claim that the people of the United States didn’t understand him because he knows so much more than they do. I know better. President Obama sounded like an idiot to me, too.

    Sarah knows the score, she realizes what is happening to this nation. She has probably been most instrumental in Politics. She truly see what is happening to this nation.

    Someone said recently that they wish they didn’t do the Healthcare bill. Obama didn’t do a thing but leave it up to Congress to make it happen and the struggle with various ideas with no input by him. He said the wasted precious time and the should have tackle the jobs and economy, first.

    This was a democrat saying this. And Sarah has known that this is completely against our Constitution and the left are getting tired of her throwing this in their face.

    Obama Press Secretary Says GOP Is Politicizing Election

    President Obama’s Press Secretary Jay Carney lashed out at the GOP for “politicizing the upcoming elections.” “They’re trying to exploit so-called scandals and policy failures for political gain,” Carney complained.

    The scandals referenced by Carney included the sexploits of the Secret Service in Columbia and lavish parties thrown by the General Services Administration (GSA).

    “These things aren’t the president’s fault,” Carney insisted. “Historically, the role of the Secret Service has been to cover up the president’s illicit sexual liaisons, not engage in their own. What would’ve happened to President Kennedy or Clinton if their bodyguards had been as self-serving as those assigned to President Obama?”

    “As for the GSA, the biggest scandalous party didn’t even cost a million dollars,” Carney pointed out. “It didn’t amount to a hill of beans in a budget that’s over a trillion dollars in the red. Besides, abusing the expense account is one of the perks of the job. And let’s not forget that every dollar spent helps stimulate the economy. So is what they are doing really such a bad thing?”

    “Even more absurd is the implication that there have been significant policy failures,” Carney added. “The premise that high unemployment, high gas prices, and high deficits are undesirable is mistaken. These are necessary steps on the path to the social transformation the President promised voters in 2008.”

    Carney characterized the “negativity toward the President as disloyalty bordering on treason. It’s one thing to run for office. I mean, we wouldn’t have much of a democracy if there was only one candidate on the ballot. But tearing down what he’s trying to do goes beyond the pro forma requirements of the democratic process.” {…} read on.

    Does Carney know any other words besides Politicizing or preposterous. Seems someone has let him out of his cage to learn BIG words.

    CBO estimates Obama’s 2013 budget plan would hit economic growth

    The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Friday that President Obama’s 2013 budget will hurt the economy in the long term, arguing the larger deficits it would produce would reduce the amount of capital available to businesses.

    After five years, the CBO says, the Obama proposals would reduce economic output by between 0.5 percent and 2.2 percent.

    It is on every truthful website what is happening under Obama rule and Carney knows it too.

    Five myths about Sarah Palin

    [2. Resigning as governor was rash.

    No one expected Palin’s resignation on July 3, 2009, just 2 1/2 years into her term. Her hastily composed and clumsily delivered farewell address left many observers confused about her motives. Some of her critics were only too eager to fill in the gaps with conjecture and hearsay (She’s being investigated by the FBI! Sarah and Todd must be headed for divorce!). If there was one thing everybody knew for sure, it was that Palin’s career in politics was over.

    But none of the rumored scandals ever broke. The Palins remain
    married. And as for Sarah Palin’s career, it’s taken off. She plays
    a far greater role in American public life than she did before she
    left office.

    When Palin returned to Alaska after the 2008 campaign, she confronted three problems. The political coalition on which she had based her governorship — a combination of Democrats and renegade “Palinista” Republicans — had collapsed. Her critics were using Alaska’s tough ethics laws to launch investigations into her behavior, sapping her finances and her energy. Finally, every time she traveled to the Lower 48, Alaskans criticized her for putting her political interests above the state’s.

    Palin’s solution was to resign. Her agenda stood a better chance
    of passing if then-Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell, who shared Palin’s goals,
    succeeded her as governor. As a private citizen, meanwhile, Palin
    could make enough money to pay her legal bills. And she would no
    longer be accused of neglecting her official duties.

    Some might say that Palin’s resignation was shortsighted and showed
    that she was not ready for the demands of executive office. But if Palin
    had remained governor, she would have been denied opportunities to
    rally the tea party and fight in the battle over the Obama agenda. She
    would have been stuck on a regional stage. Instead, she’s back on the
    national one.

    just for the record..

    September 11, 2008


    [“Media reports that Congress killed the Bridge to Nowhere are not
    accurate,” said Schatz. “The 2006 transportation appropriations bill
    allowed Alaska to decide whether or not to move forward. Governor
    Murkowski said yes; Governor Palin said no. Any discussion about the
    project should begin with facts.”

    Biden, Obama helped keep ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ alive

    [Although Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden routinely
    mocks his Republican counterpart, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, for her
    onetime support of the infamous “Bridge to Nowhere,” Biden and his
    running mate voted to keep the project alive twice.

    Both Biden and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama voted
    to kill a Senate amendment that would have diverted federal funding for
    the bridge to repair a Louisiana span badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina,
    Senate records show.

    And both voted for the final transportation bill that
    included the $223 million earmark for the Alaska project.]

    You don’t know what you’re talking about.
    Bashir is of Pakistani descent.
    No way he’d be caught dead with any woman over the age of 9.

    You may be right on the facts there, but give us a break.
    What if they called themselves the “righteous and supreme model of everything correct, superior to all others” party

    Would we have to call them that too?
    There’s nothing democratic about the Democrat party (unless you go back to the earliest root of the word, “mob rule” vice “rule by the people”)
    They want the loud minority to have dominion over the silent majority.
