Huffington Post Hits Sarah Palin Over the Head With a Dead Body

-from Patrick's World USA

Huffington Post writer "Shannyn Moore apparently thinks it's appropriate to dig up the corpse of [former Alaska Governor] Wally Hickel and bash Sarah Palin over the head with it," according to God, Guts and Sarah Palin in a post that was also published on Conservatives4Palin. Moore accuses Palin of "crashing the funeral" and goes on to use a disagreement between Hickel and Palin to form the basis of her irreverent hit piece. Arianna Huffington who so hypocritically criticized Roger Ailes by telling him that hate mongering stuff on her website is "not approved" must have approved of Shannyn Moore's article since it appeared on The Huffington Post yesterday.

This is the same Huffington who has allowed the smearing of Palin on her website since August 2008. Yet she attacked Glenn Beck for forcing Van Jones out of office barely two months after the Alaska bloggers and frivolous ethics complaint filers were prominently played up on her website in the days leading up to Palin's resignation as governor of Alaska. In fact, she used many of the same arguments that Palin supporters used to explain her resignation. What was good for the goose surely was not good for the gander, especially when working within intellectually dishonest confines.

This isn't the first time Shannyn Moore has been in hot water for posting hate on Huffington Post. She was singled out by Palin's attorney Thomas Van Flein for appearing on MSNBC and talking about allegations of a non-existent federal indictment which she was speculating could have been the reason for Palin's resignation. Moore, not hiding the fact that she was rooting on this rumor to be true, also wrote this on the Huffington Post at that time:
For weeks the rumors of a criminal investigation against the governor have been brewing. They are rumors, but are swirling fresh again with Palin's resignation. I'm holding my breath for the other "Naughty Monkey" to drop. Another theory for the resignation is that the Palins would have to disclose the book deal as well as other financial details as governor.
Moore is connected with a group of Alaska bloggers who started smearing Sarah Palin when Celtic Diva was named the official Alaska DNC blogger. During the 2008 presidential campaign, almost all of the misinformation about Governor Palin came from Alaska, partly from local Democrats like Kim Elton (of Troopergate fame) and from “progressive” bloggers.

Jeanne Devon championed the work of the Wasilla Project, which was a documentary series being produced by an independent film maker for the sole purpose of smearing Sarah Palin. The project sought out Wasilla's biggest malcontents and paraded them out to speak about baseless claims against Sarah Palin on vidoes posted on YouTube. All the smears put forth by the Wasilla Project were eventually debunked despite causing damage to Palin's reputation. This is the group responsible for the rape kit rumors.

Shannyn Moore connects the whole group with the Wasilla Project in her blog Sarah Palin Blames Bloggers:

Feeling like an endangered species, Alaska progressives are tight. The Alaska Bloggers are tighter. Right after the nomination of Sarah Palin for VP, Wasilla blogger, musician, professor, and all around renaissance man, Phil Munger, threw a party at his home-the first of many. Secrecies were sworn; we were not alone in front of our computers-we had each other; Mudflats, Immoral Minority,
Writing Raven, Celtic Diva, Progressive Alaska, Alaska Report, What Do I Know, and myself, Just a Girl From Homer. Documentary crews interviewed us and protected anonymous identities at the time.

Documentary crews? There was only one documentary crew covering Sarah Palin during the campaign and that was The Wasilla Project. The below is quoted from The Wasilla Project website which is no longer online:

We've been featured on some major alternative blogs: Huffington Post, Alternet, Crooks and Liars, Wreck and Salvage among others. And we've also featured on blogs from our good friends in Alaska: Mudflats, Progressive Alaska, Shannyn Moore. Some highlights for us during the project were being on the front page of Huffington Post once and on the front page of Salon for 3 days.

And we had kind of creepy coverage in the (Anchorage) Daily News.

Ah, but the real hate mongering of today is happening in The Huffington Post where the leftovers of the Palin smear campaign have gone to continue their evil work.

Billoreilly.com explains more:

Internet sleuth Amanda Carpenter reported that left-wing blogs are gleefully attacking Bristol and Sarah Palin. "If you go to a site like the Huffington Post," Carpenter said, "they smear Bristol Palin to make a political point about her mother. They use her as a prop. Arianna Huffington permits this kind of speech to take place on her web site, she wants people on there commenting." The Factor expressed disgust at the Huffington Post and its proprietress. "Arianna Huffington is the darling of the mainstream media, but she promotes and revels in hateful comments. Huffington can make a ton of money trafficking in this kind of stuff, and it says we are just not an honest country any longer."

The Huffington Post hypocrisy is glaringly obvious considering its connections with the Alaska bloggers, the group which is also linked to the frivolous ethics complaints, whether they filed them or cheerled them on their blogs. These "supposedly independent" Alaskans who filed these ethics complaints provided the fodder that eventually ground the Alaskan state government to a hault. Then they turned around and claimed Palin was a quitter or that she was involved in some wrong doing to explain her resignation. They did all of this to get rid of Palin. So when she finally did resign, what did the hypocrites do? They complained about her resigning. Now they're whining because she's big time nationally and free to make and raise a log of money. 

Which brings me back to the damned if you, damned if you don't scenario that hypocrites like Huffington and her minions create so they leave open both arguments eliminating the need for facts. Uffda explains this tactic best:
Wow. How hateful. I can totally see why Shannyn felt the need to use Hickel's funeral to further her own political agenda.

Remember when Sarah sent out a tweet for Hickel and Moore's partner-in-obsession Geoffrey Dunn was like, "What, that's it? Just a tweet?"

Trust me, if Sarah had not attended or had said nothing at all about Hickel yesterday, Shannyn would be screaming, "See how horrible she is! An icon, a founding father of Alaska died and she doesn't care! She's a horrible witch!"
Remember the name Geoffrey Dunn, another Huffington Post hate mongerer. You will be seeing it a lot when fair minded people debunk all of his lies about The Lies of Sarah Palin when it is released.

Ah, they stab it with their steely knives, but they just can't kill the beast!

What Last Night's Results Tell Us: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

What do last night's poll results tell us? As a conservative blogger, there are three fascinating points that I take away from last night's results:

1) A Sarah Palin Endorsement is Gold: When Sarah endorsed Rand Paul in Kentucky, over the other candidates, many were left speechless. I know several individuals who said Rand Paul essentially had no chance of winning the Republican Primary. Boy, were these individuals wrong. Not only did Rand Paul win last night, but he won big. He managed to capture over 50 percent of the vote and energize a state and country in the process. Is Rand Paul the perfect conservative candidate? No, but I believe there is no such thing as the "perfect candidate." Each and every candidate has his or her own beliefs regarding what classifies them as a Republican or Democrat. It baffles my mind the way in which so many people seem to get their panties in a bunch whenever Sarah does not endorse the candidate of their choice. In the recent weeks, I have seen some very strong, offensive language directed at Sarah by members of her own party. When she endorsed Rand Paul and even Carly Fiorina out here in my home state of California, she did so after strong consideration for what would be best for the people of Kentucky and California. It is fine for individuals to disagree with Sarah's endorsements, but instead of attacking her online and calling her vile names, take your anger to the ballot box. Your vote is the greatest endorsement there is.

I am left wondering one thing: Since when did it become law that Sarah has to please everyone? Having met and talked with her, I KNOW FOR A FACT, Sarah is her own woman and makes her own decisions. She never makes any decision without first researching and doing some soul searching. This is one of the reasons I admire her so much. She makes her own path. With her endorsement of Rand Paul, Sarah proved that she is her own woman and as far from a Washington insider as you can get.

Rand Paul's victory last night overwhelmingly proves that the good people of Kentucky agree with Sarah's judgment. The good people of Kentucky are tired of the politics as usual and just want someone who will go to Washington to work for them, putting their best interests to heart. Thank you, Sarah, for stepping up and for being your independent self. You continue to energize and rejuvenate America!!!

2) The Tea Party Movement Continues to Move Full Steam Ahead: Rand Paul's victory last night can also be heavily attributed to the tea party movement. Don't let the lamestream/mainstream media try to tell you this movement is fading or splitting up the Republican Party. On the contrary, this movement is growing, and if last night is any indication, the movement will continue to grow and have a huge impact on upcoming elections. This is what the media fear. Just as their attacks on Sarah illustrate the fear they have in her, their dismissal of the tea party movement as being a serious movement is another sign of fear. The last thing the media want to happen is for average-day Americans to have a say and let their voices be heard. As soon as this happens, the media know they have lost in selling their president. We all know the msm are in the tank for President Obama, and the more the tea party movement grows and expands, the less of an impact the msm will have in selling false advertising. All I have to say to all of this is: "Rock on, Tea Party Movement! Keep fighting the good fight and taking the commonsense conservative message all the way to Washington DC."

3) If You're a Democrat, Stay Away from an Obama Endorsement: It is crystal clear, from what we saw last night, that an endorsement from Obama is an epic fail. There is only so much glitz and glamour an individual can take before they realize they've been conned. The American people are fed up with what is occurring in Washington. Americans are seeing the wasteful spending that is occurring, and instead of sitting back, they have decided to do something about it. Just like the tea party movement is taking the country by storm, so too is the anti-Obama mood. There isn't too much more to say about this other than to kick the bums out and, in the process, kick the antics of the Obama Administration to the curb.
