one from 2008, to illustrate President Obama's desire to move to renewable energy sources.
Then Palin lets the venom fly:
Memo to Obama (You know if you really wanted the President to see this wouldn't it be more effective if it were printed someplace besides on Facebook? You know like on Fox....oh sorry I forgot.): you could destroy ISIS in a heartbeat if you wanted to. These desert rats aren't running a covert oil operation - their rigs, pump stations, gathering centers, separation facilities, pipelines, value-added refineries, trucks and transportation corridors are right there under your nose. Bomb them. Let the United States Military do its job and kick ISIS ass... or pull out, like you promised. If you're having a hard time spotting the enemy's obvious funding source on the ground or in satellite images, I'm sure your trusty aides can help. Those same aides assisting you on the golf course with eagle eyes pointing you to your errant hit hundreds of yards off in the drink - surely they can pinpoint billowing oil facilities in the Islamic flatlands that are much larger than your tiny golf balls. (Yes it's a little known fact that the President's military advisers also accompany him to his golf games so that they can spot lost golf balls.)
Physically and fiscally cut off the enemy's funding source. Levy uncompromising, impervious sanctions against any country or corporation doing any business whatsoever with jihadists. Manufacturers, service providers, etc. Anyone in bed with the enemy gets cut off. Got it?
(Does she mean like this? “The middlemen, traders, refiners, transport companies, and anyone else that handles [Isis’s] oil should know that we are hard at work identifying them, and that we have tools at hand to stop them,” David Cohen, the undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence at the US treasury, warned.)
Use your noggin, Obama. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure this out. Or maybe it does. (Shout out to you Ben Carson!)
The silver lining in these "$1.5 million daily uninterrupted ISIS-oil trade" revelations is more proof you're barely limping along as the coalition "leader" in this fight for our security. You give even democrats one less reason to have to ask, "Who's side are you on?" Awakened Americans aren't just rolling over for your incompetence anymore; their (sic) arising is seen in presidential campaign polls reflecting disgust with the Washington establishment's complicity with your dysfunction. (Yes, that's why Hillary leads in virtually every poll.) We want a true fighter for America at the helm. We need an outsider willing to go rogue against the perceived powers-that-be in order to regain our free nation's legitimate power. (An outsider willing to "go rogue." Gee I wonder who she is hoping people will ignorantly think she means by that?)
Look around, Obama. There are strong manly leaders on the world stage whom you should try to emulate in your waning days in office. Benjamin Netanyahu is on top. Learn from him. Vladimir Putin is small-headed and wrong, but at least there's no question he puts his country first - and he can wrestle grizzly bears - so on that front, learn from him. (Yeah Obama! Wrestle a damn bear once in awhile! What kind of leader never wrestles a bear?)
And of course, any one of our brave women and men in uniform today, and our honored vets who proudly wore the uniform yesterday, can teach you a thing or two about defeating the enemy so America can be great again.
Letting Muslim terrorists buy and sell oil to fund the destruction of innocents while you thwart American-made energy opportunities is sick and sinful. Wimpy hacks in your lap representing media won't call you out on this ("Wimpy hacks in your lap representing media?" WTF?), so we will. We ask: from the most powerful office in the world, with the greatest military might wearing our red, white and blue, what are you doing to interrupt the terrorist's obvious funding source? What are you doing to destroy them before they destroy us? (And by "we" Palin means herself, her ghostwriter, the voices in her head, and the Facebook likes she purchased with SarahPAC money.)
- Sarah Palin
So now we know why we have not heard anything from Palin since October 7th. She has been hibernating in her cave producing copious amounts of venom for this tirade.
Well I am not military expert like Sarah "My son's a combat vet, not an alcoholic!" Palin but I did a little Googling and this is what I found:
U.S.-led forces want to avoid hitting the oil installations hard because it could hurt civilians more than the militants and could radicalize the local population, analysts say.
"Our options are limited unless you hit the wells - but it does not just hit Islamic State, it hits the entire population and that is not something that the U.S. can do very easily," said Andrew Tabler, a senior fellow at the U.S.-based Washington Institute, who focuses on Syria.
"It's a good example of the constraints of trying to bomb your way out of it."
In other words the world's problems may seem simple, and the solutions obvious, while sitting in front of your computer in your housecoat and fuzzy slippers posting to Facebook, but it is a lot more complicated when you are dealing with real world consequences.
However if Palin feels this strongly about her "common sense solutions" then she needs to go to the plastic surgeon for a little tune up, shake the mothballs out of her best wig, slowly wean herself off of the Meth, and announce to the world that she is ready to hit the campaign trail.
After all THEN perhaps a few more people will hear what she has to say besides my own loyal readers and the handful of actual human beings who still visit her Facebook page.
Just a thought. (Oh please, please, please do it!)
No pressure. (I'll even donate to your campaign. I promise!)
Whatever you think is best. (Wuss, I KNEW you wouldn't do it.)
