Panel: Palin abused power in trooper case

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (CNN) — Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin abused her power as Alaska’s governor and violated state ethics law by trying to get her ex-brother-in-law fired from the state police, a state investigator’s report concluded Friday. “Gov. Palin knowingly permitted a situation to continue where impermissible pressure was placed on several subordinates in order to advance a personal agenda,” the report states.

Palin and her husband, Todd, have consistently denied wrongdoing, describing Wooten as a “rogue trooper” who had threatened their family — allegations Branchflower discounted. “I conclude that such claims of fear were not bona fide and were offered to provide cover for the Palins’ real motivation: to get Trooper Wooten fired for personal family reasons,” Branchflower wrote.

The Branchflower report states Todd Palin used his wife’s office and its resources to press for Wooten’s removal, and the governor “failed to act” to stop it. But because Todd Palin is not a state employee, the report makes no finding regarding his conduct.

Palin on which newspapers she reads: ‘Um, all of them”

 

Katie Couric asked Sarah Palin which sources she relies on for her news consumption. Caught off guard, Palin could not name a single news source:

COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world?

PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media —

COURICBut what ones specifically? I’m curious.

PALINUm, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.

COURIC: Can you name any of them?

PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news.

Revealed – Similarities between Sarah Palin and Miss South Carolina?

Is this the reason why mccain campaign keeps Sarah Palin away from the media?

Couric: Have you ever been involved in any negotiations, for example, with the Russians?

Palin: We have trade missions back and forth, we do. It’s very important when you consider even national-security issues with Russia. As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right next to, they are right next to our state.

COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? … Instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

PALIN: Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy– Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions.

Remember Miss south Carolina who made the following statement:

I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because uh some uh people out there in our nation don’t *have* maps and uh I believe that our ed- education like such as in South Africa and uh the- the Iraq everywhere like such as and I believe that they should uh our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. or- or- should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future

Fidel Castro has slept with 35,000 women

Read On…..

NEW YORK: Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro has slept with 35,000 women in his 82 years of life, according to an upcoming documentary. 

“He slept with at least two women a day for more than four decades – one for lunch and one for supper,” The New York Post quoted an ex-Castro official named “Ramon” as telling filmmaker Ian Halperin. “Sometimes he even ordered one for breakfast,” the official said. 

“I don”t think he would have stayed on as long as he did if not for all the incredible women he had access to as president,” the official added. 

Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz or Fidel Castro led his country from December 1959 until his resignation in February this year. Castro came to power as a result of the Cuban revolution that overthrew the dictator Fulgencio Batista, and shortly thereafter became Prime Minister of Cuba. 

Although the US has tried hard to get rid of him, Castro outlasted no fewer than nine American presidents since he took power.

Is the Palin effect Over? [Updated]

 

Probably Yes.

CNN’s poll of polls had earlier shown that Palin was the driving factor behind John McCain’s lead over Obama. (McCain leading 47 to 45 on 8th September). But it seems the Palin effect is over and Obama is back in the lead (47 to 44 18th of September). Palin’s favorable rating is at 40 percent, according to a  CBS News/New York Times poll. That’s down 4 points from last week. Her unfavorable rating is at 30 percent, rising eight points in a week.

Economy is the fundamental reason behind this change .  McCain said Monday that “the fundamentals of the American economy are strong. Probably not a smart thing to say on the day of financial meltdown. Most Americans see Obama as more capable than John McCain when it comes to handling the economy, polls show. 

Also “Thanks but no thanks to bridge to Nowhere”  comment has angered many Alaskans and people are learning that she  had earlier supported the bridge .

Former Bush adviser Karl Rove predicted Wednesday that Palin’s star power would wear off.

“Nothing lasts for 60-some-odd days,” Rove told The Associated Press. “Will she be the center of attention in the remaining 48 days? No, but she came on in a very powerful way and has given a sense of urgency to the McCain campaign that’s pretty remarkable.”

Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel, a Republican, is questioning whether Palin has enough foreign-policy experience to serve as the country’s second-in-command. “She doesn’t have any foreign policy credentials,” Hagel told the Omaha World-Herald. “You get a passport for the first time in your life last year? I mean, I don’t know what you can say. You can’t say anything.”

“I think they ought to be just honest about it and stop the nonsense about, ‘I look out my window and I see Russia and so therefore I know something about Russia,” he added. “That kind of thing is insulting to the American people.”
