Here is how it begins:
Russia just built and employed icebreakers to control Northern passageways while busily flagging life-sustaining resource-rich underseas acreage, with zero pushback from the U.S
In laymen’s terms, The Great Bear seized on America’s weak “uni-party” that controls our government, and watched our politicians go along to get along with Obama’s agenda built on disdain for an “all of the above” energy plan, a nonchalant attitude about bankrupting our government, and overall ignorance about purpose of national borders.
Way to go Democrats. And capitulating Republicans.
In Palin speak this translates into "Russia beddy smart. America beddy stoopid!"
Palin also demonstrates open disdain for both parties apparently for not protecting our border with Russia.
In fact we have a whole military force stationed up here for that very purpose and they have proven quite adept at keeping the Russians at bay. Well, until Donald Trump invited them to hijack our last election that is.
And it gets better, or worse depending on your perspective:
The uni-party (The "uni-party?" When were the two parties EVER unified in the last eight years? Did I sleep through that part?) was amply warned by average Americans for eight years. We said we must secure borders – including up North via controlling transportation corridors that Russia wants. I said we must plant the flag to claim our underseas resources, we have to explore, and we must drill, baby.
Despite the ridicule, we kept up the chant until finally ousting shortsighted politicians who heretofore fooled voters into believing they, in self-preservation mode, had our interests at heart. (Yeah, trying to protect the planet for future generations,. Those bastards!)
We knew of which we spoke.
We watched other nations innovate and build infrastructure – and lay claim to the Arctic – whilst our leaders slept. Our pleas for leadership’s great awakening were ignored, or at best, mocked. As more and more land got locked up, we got locked out of opportunity to safely develop God-given natural resources for mankind’s responsible use.
Palin and her ghostwriter then attempt to teach a history lesson about the purchase of Alaska that most grade school children would find flawed, before getting back to the meat of her rant.
The Left’s suddenly convenient blame game against Russian President Putin has been to deflect from failure. America’s alpha male pack in charge is intimidated by Putin and instead of pulling up their mom jeans to better position us, they pivot to stir up fights for things like a grown man’s “right” to pee in a little girl’s bathroom. (Well that is a rather simplistic and inflammatory interpretation of the law to protect the rights of our LGBTQ citizens.)
Say what you will about Putin; I say I have respect for our neighbor, for you never have to guess on who’s side he is committed. (Well based on what happened during the election I would have to say Donald Trump's side. Which is of course Putin's side.)
Without a doubt the Left’s failure set us back. But we still have the energy supplies, technology and workforce – all we lacked was the political will – so it’s not too late to reposition. (For the record President Obama oversaw the biggest boom in oil production in America's history. And his administration made great strides in moving the country toward green energy as well. We don't need to reposition, we need to STAY positioned.)
America’s security and sovereignty are at stake. That is why, when the starting gun goes off on January 20, a new race to the top of the world begins. For those of us who want peace and freedom more than anything else on earth, we know how to win it through strength. America can grow her muscle again built on energy and mineral deposits, year-round navigable waterways, the world’s most abundant sustainable fisheries, and so many more offerings of the North, many having been recognized by Lincoln’s team.
Alaska and the Arctic are enormously significant. Fittingly, The Last Frontier’s simple state flag is the literal illustration of where America can look for answers. On a field of blue, Alaska’s stars of gold point to The Great North Star. May new leaders look to it and realize it’s Creator can be our guiding light.
– Sarah Palin
I find it ironic beyond measure that a woman whose candidate was selected to lead this country by a Russian dictator has the gall to suggest that it was President Obama who failed to stand up to Russia.
In fact it was that "steel spine" that Palin is always talking, demonstrated by both President Obama AND his Secretary of State, which inspired Putin to try and secure the election of a candidate that he knew he could control.
As for drilling in the Arctic, well MOST Americans not only know how costly that will be, and how big of a risk it poses to our environment, but they also realize that we simply do not need that kind of risky venture anymore.
Like I mentioned above Obama resided over the biggest oil production boom in our history and ALSO positioned the country to move away from its reliance on fossil fuels, which not only removes much of the reason for our aggressive actions in the Middle East, but also makes us far more self reliant.
Actually it is the Russian economy, which relies on oil and natural gas production for about half of its fiscal revenue, that is in danger of collapsing if there are no new oilfields discovered or if the world turns more sharply toward renewable energy sources, NOT America.
President Obama has in fact helped to place us in a very enviable position.
And since Vladimir Putin cannot replicate that success, he chooses instead to place his own Manchurian candidate in place to level the playing field by bringing America back down to his level.
Something that he was only able to accomplish with the help of useful idiots like Sarah Palin, and her ilk.
