When Palin-bots revolt!


Sister Sarah has decided to pimp for Samaritan's Purse and ask her legion of sycophants to give money to support Franklin Grahams wallet...I ma sorry charity.  Here is a little of what she wrote on her Facebook page:
In an effort to fight a deadly cholera outbreak in Haiti, Samaritan’s Purse has flown over a dozen flights carrying vital medical supplies to the two cholera treatment centers it has been running since the start of the outbreak. These centers, run by medical volunteers from the U.S., Canada, and the UK, have helped save the lives of nearly 5,000 patients.

If you’d like to support the great work Samaritan’s Purse does in Haiti and around the world, please visit their website.

There's more but you get the idea.

Seems simply right?  Asking people to help what Palin pretends to believe is a worthy cause.  So of course she would expect the people she has conditioned to jump through her hoops to, well to jump through her hoops.

But not so fast, it appears that perhaps the Grizzled Mama does not understand her supporters quite as well as she thinks she does.  Here are some of their rather pointed responses. (I will of course omit their names.)

Sorry,charity begins at home...WE HAVE A LOT OF NEEDY IN THE GOOD OLE USA!!!

Sorry Sarah, as much as I like you, your totally off on this one! Charity. We as a country need to concentrate on helping our own in this country 1st and foremost! Whether this be American children, doing without food, and or who are up for adoption. Families that are doing without, within our communities be at the local, state or within these United States. Our 1st duty must be at home. We must take care of our own people, no other country is going to help us, and many times the charities that we give are either not appreciated or support future generations of American hater’s from abroad. Also lest we not don't forget our service men and women, and families and our homeless veterans, who have sacrificed their all for us!

I think that is Great,, BUT CAN WE PLEASE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN FIRST.There are too many Children and Adults hurting in AMERICA,How can we help others when we haven't helped our own, America comes

I work with the poor and homeless here in the good old USA and they would love to have the same gifts of food, clothing and shelter as the Haitians are getting from the US....the homeless here near Chicago are a little cold this time of year....there are many HERE who cannot do for themselves...and cannot rely on the government tohelp them either. The food pantry here cannot keep up with demand...no aid from the state or feds...

I CAN APPRECIATE YOUR SUGGESTION FOR HELP FOR HAITI, BUT THERE IS PLENTY THAT NEEDS HELP RIGHT HERE AT HOME IN THE USA. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A SPECIAL DONE ON THE CHILDREN THAT WILL DO WITHOUT THIS YEAR, DUE TO THE ECONOMY AND UNEMPLOYMENT HERE IN THE USA, WE HAVE TO HAVE OUR FOUNDATION SOLID HERE BEFORE GOING OUT TO HELP OTHERS.GOD BLESS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS

Sarah I have a question you are my favorite by far your awesome but I was wondering why are we in a rush to help other countries when louisiana and galveston has not been helped yet it still looks really bad just wondering there's a lot in our country that needs help and its not getting it its just on my mindm your still great

I am only interested in helping the millions of needy children in America. Sorry but tired of selling our own poor and needy for a photo op.

Hmm it looks like SOMEBODY is losing control over their minions.

And the really interesting thing is that the usually extremely militant and protective Facebook editors are letting these comments stay up, which kind of makes me wonder if even THEY are sick of Palin's shit!

  4. That's not exactly pimping, it's called quid pro quo. It is rather nice to have the Sam Purse fleet of Jets at your beckon call. Begging4bucks is second nature to Sarah Palin.

    O/T

    The rags and teabags put it out about how popular Bristol Palin is. She is the front runner in the latest popularity genre of Reality Shows and especially the unmarried and knocked up shows. The latter has a teen audience and that makes Bristol A HUGE TEEN IDOL. We all know how the media goes crazy over every little thing that is said about a teen idol and even the older reality stars get major press over nothing.

    The news of a NEW BOYFRIEND IS BIG.

    I am waiting for all the items that will be written about the new boyfriend Gino Paoletti. Did HL get it right with this picture?
    Is this Giacinto Paoletti?

    Is Giacinto Paoletti the other boy is his profile pic?

    The Palins must owe the Grahams a small fortune. I don't think they want a direct payment so this is perfect. Frank was good enough to go along with Bristol's trip without Tripp. Why won't the suckers just keep on being suckers and send more money? After all it is Sarah. Her rich friends pay no attention to her Facebook moosecrap. The ones that feed their children only rice and sugar treats are the ones she is after. They must be almost brain dead by now so who is making the fuss?

    Florida says thanks but no thanks...

    We've had a lot of polls show that Palin would be a disaster for the GOP but this might be the starkest evidence of it yet,” Jensen writes.

    The former Alaska Governor trails Obama by “a stunning 14-point margin” — 52 percent to 38 percent, in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup released this morning by Public Policy Polling.

    Samaritan's Purse is the last place I would donate money. Fake christians forcing their belief system on others who are desperate.

While the leaders of Samaritan's Purse live the lifestyle of the rich and famous while handing out platitudes and plastic junk with bible verses...no thanks.

    FWIW, most people in Haiti seem to be in much worse straits than those struggling in this country. But I guess if the GOP is successful in its efforts to dismantle our safety net we might be that bad off, one day.

    I agree with them (smelling salts please)- unemployment, homeless families, local food banks are attempting to assist as many as they can (without help since they've been cut to the bone on funding) The local Food Bank rep practically cried when I donated most of my Christmas bonus.

  24. Hate to say it, but the first thing that came to my mind was that the people in Haiti are mostly black and we all know the level of racism that follows our dear sweet scara. It seems to be a nice way to say, no way scara, but not look so obvious. Surprised to see so many right wingers willing to care about anybody but themselves--shocking! At the end of the day, that scumbag could care less what happens to Haiti.

    Exactly, there are so many people here who need help, and there are many things you can do that don't cost anything, especially $35 for a box of junk with Jesus notes in them.

    Donate old coats,and clothing for people, blankets and towels at an animal shelter (many are homeless due to their owners financial woes),drop off extra canned goods to a food bank, answer a Santa letter from the Post Office, orvolunteer to bring meals to seniors. There are so many needs right here right now. Sarah owes Franklin Graham some kind of big favor, I just don't know what it is yet.

    Supreme Court rules against Miller

    The Supreme Court ruled that the Alaska Division of Elections followed the law in counting misspelled ballots write-in ballots for Murkowski. “Voter intent is paramount and any misspelling, abbreviation or other minor variation …does not invalidate a ballot so long as the intention of the voter can be ascertained,” the Supreme Court said in its ruling.

    The Supreme Court also dismissed Miller’s suggestions of election fraud, finding that he hasn’t proven misconduct.

    Glad to see the bots are human!

    I have mixed feelings - Haitians really need help, but so do many here at home. The fact that Haiti's corrupt government has misappropriated the funds we've given over the years doesn't negate the need.

    As I sit here snug in my centrally heated 70 degree home office (and still my slippered feet are cold!), I cannot begin to imagine being homeless - especially in the winter in say... Chicago. The needs are great.

    Guess all we can do is whatever we can to help as many as we can, wherever and however we can and pray for the best.

    I have been looking for information about the generosity of Sarah Palin when it comes to charitable contributions. All that I could find was that while Palin made millions, she gave $1,000. to a Down syndrome organization and $1,000. to a Wasilla pregnancy center, the kind of place the encourages pregnant girl not to consider abortion.

    In contrast, Palin's PAC donated $65,000. to political candidates, while a hefty portion of the money goes to political consultants, and first class travel. One of the reasons that we look forward to Palin running for President is that she will have to release her private records. I can't wait to see how much of Palin's Private money she donated to Franklin Graham. Or, does Sarah consider her "appearance" with Graham as a sufficient donation of her time and celebrity.

    This pitch for Graham's charity is interesting in that we have never seen Sarah lend the force of her personality in raising money for Down syndrome organizations, something that ought to be closer to her heart than Haiti.

    Many people believe charity begins at home not just Palin's devout fans.

    If the story is that for once the bots disagreed with her or there were posts not in full agreement with her nor their comments of dissent deleted this truly is a first.

    It must sting for the Bots who seek Palin for President to swallow she is focusing on another season of a reality show. C4P did not believe a reality show would help Palin get elected. So they convinced themselves it would be a high class documentary on the Discovery channel.

    No doubt Palin believes she can be a reality star and that advances her to the white house. Many bots believed America will fall in love with Bristo and next they'd be in the white house too. I doubt it will have her even be a contender for a nomination.

    We can look forward to Bristol in her designer gown and some dudes in camo for a first class wasillabilly wedding. Maybe they'll invite the Kardashians for a boost in ratings.

Exciting, even, to be with a Bad Boy. Time goes by, the best behavior starts to wane, the bad behavior shines through, finally she can't ignore the fact that he's interested in himself more than he'll ever be interested in her.

    The Palins are a greedy lot, not charitable at all. Not without a show and I hope they expose Franklin Graham for the charlatan he is.

    Sarah Palin is one twisted sister. Her values are ass-backwards. If I was still a Republican I would be leaving the party now because not even the ones that see through her are willing to do all it takes to expose her. I mean expose everything big or small about her and her family.

    "Sarah you certainly aren’t pushing college for your oldest son Track either. After serving a tour in Iraq, you are encouraging him to take up a career as a salmon fisherman, following in the footsteps of his dad, Todd.

    I’d hate to say that might be the case. But if it’s not, then Sarah Palin– Why don’t you give Bristol an opportunity to have a bigger and more long-term future than just being a reality star?"

    The one constant on planet Teabaggia is that its inhabitants don't like to be told what to do by anybody, including Sarah Palin. She also should realize that they are all nativist buffoons. ANY request to give money to ANY foreigners will be met with hostility.

    I can see a plea going out to the teabaggers concerning a homeless unmarried couple living abroad, the woman pregnant and about to give birth. (Rumor has it that the child is NOT her boyfriend's!) They can find no shelter anywhere and it looks like she might have to actually give birth in a barn attended to only by neighboring shepherds. If someone asked the teabaggers to lend a hand and help out these poor unfortunates, the teabaggers response would be:

    "Hey, we have enough unwed AMERICAN women, we should help them first. Anyway, why isn't she married yet? She IS going to get married, ISN'T SHE!? Besides, helping them would just reward their sinful, slothful, lazy nature. Why isn't baby daddy working? Just another illegal, probably. God helps them what helps themselves. It's in the Bible, doncha' know. Oh, Merry Christmas."

  100. According to the 2009 IRS 990 form on the Samaritan's Purse website, Franklin Graham's total compensation for 2009 was $616,665. He also received $120,205 in 2009 compensation from Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
    Also, too Samaritan's Purse has failed to meet BBB Standards of Charitable Accountability and Billy Graham Evangelical Association has not responded to Alliance requests for information or has declined to be evaluated in relation to the Alliance’s Standards for Charity Accountability. While participation in the Alliance’s charity review efforts is voluntary, the Alliance believes that failure to participate may demonstrate a lack of commitment to transparency. Without the requested information, the Alliance cannot determine if this charity adheres to the Standards for Charity Accountability.

    The poor in America don't need charity or donations, they have Reality TV and they can get their own jobs.

    What is Bristol's story all about? She is an activist, just ask ABC, DWTS and such. She is an activist for those poor unwed teens and mothers giving birth with no family structure and zero money. Bristol is their role model and clearly the message is they will never need charity. They just need to follow her example, have a good hard work ethic and dance their pain away like she did.

    The Haiti photos and propaganda may not save Bristol from the scrutiny that is coming her way.

    ot 1 hour ago by Becky Broderick December 22, 2010 "While Levi Johnston's new girlfriend (day care worker Sunny Oglesby) could help him be a better father to son Tripp, Bristol Palin's new man, (oil rigger Gino Paoletti) may be helping her be a mommy for the second time."

    Gino and Bristol —they only started seriously dating at the end of Bristol's run on Dancing with the Stars. THAT IS FAST. Instant love, instant baby. He IS an Italian Stallion, I wonder why he removed that from his MySpace when he did? Hadn't he already learned from Levi?

    "And she certainly can't be happy about Bristol recently de-throning herself as the abstinence queen." It's official, Bristol is dethroned and deflowered.

    If Sarah isn't happy with the new man in her life, how safe is he? What can she do to get rid of him? Remember how fast Levi went silent and went away. He retired from anything Tripp and Bristol. His role is to be the butt of bad jokes and an unrepentant sinner. The last photo I know is where he and Tripp are campaigning for mayor.

    No one knows who made up this wanting baby story. Whatever Bristol wants, Bristol gets. We know she wants and has babies. Bristol has a writer to say what is printed in the media. So what is it she really feels about Sunny Oglesby being better? It is worlds apart from the pr the LSM will print. When Bristol and Levi split last summer, ( Gino was just a friend that helped her sell her condo in Anchorage )it may have been because Sarah finally got the proof that Levi had been bought somehow. Bristol said that she was "played." That would hurt and infuriate Bristol. This pattern could repeat with Gino.

    What will Gino's fate be in this tangled web?

    Look what how it was for Levi to just eat out. This eating out scene may be more to Gino's liking. Levi seems happier now with the day-care worker. What he said holds up better than all the Palin gibberish.

    Franklin Graham's "compensation" is much much more than it looks. According to IRS 990s, he gets paid a half million from EACH of five Billy Graham registered charities. In addition, there are at least four Billy Graham charities registered in other countries that solicit donations and pay Franklin Graham as CEO - Canada, China, Singapore, Brazil. I think there are more; we just can't see them.

    One of these has a huge annual budget, but no actual employees. It's managed by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

    It's truly of amazing proportion. The Christian Mafia money laundering.

    As an example - the Operation Shoebox program.
    An 80 million dollar annual budget, but delivered entirely by volunteers and donations. Here's
    how it works.
    The public donates millions of shoeboxes filled with stuff. People are encouraged to also donate the cost of shipping - $7. The shoeboxes are processed in a big warehouse owned by the Grahams and staffed entirely by volunteer labor. Volunteers organize shoebox donation drives and solicit cash donations for the program.
    Shipments of shoeboxes are received and distributed by volunteers.
    It's very hard to see what the $60 million a year is used for, and the value and quantity of in-kind and volunteer contribution isn't properly off-set in the IRS 990.
    It LOOKS like the cost of the program is mostly compensation of the CEO and board - Franklin Graham and a handful of key individuals who get similarly compensated from each of the charities, and a handful of identified family members.
    What a fantastic racket. 2 billion dollars a year in tax-exempt free money donated.
