Sarah Palin will not appear at the opening day of her defamation case against the New York Times.

Courtesy of the New York Daily News: 

Conservative activist Sarah Palin won’t be attending the first court proceeding in her defamation case against The New York Times, according to her lawyer. 

The former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor filed a lawsuit on June 27 alleging The Times ran a “fabricated story.” The initial conference in the case is set for 11 a.m. Friday. 

Asked Thursday whether Palin will be in the courtroom, her lawyer, S. Preston Ricardo, replied “No” in an email to the Daily News.

"Conservative activist?" Well I guess that sounds better than "failed reality show performer," or "political has been."

I love this part of the article: 

Palin wants The Times to pay up for “falsely stating to millions of people that she, a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, who committed a substantial portion of her adult life to public service, is part of a pattern of ‘lethal’ politics,” the suit contends.

"Devoted" wife, mother, and grandmother? 

If the court will indulge me I'd like to make an objection. Or vomit in my mouth, whichever is the more convenient.

And who is she kidding with this "committed a substantial portion of her adult life to public service?"

The only public that Palin ever served was her the public that looked back at her from a mirror every morning.

Remember this case is only seeking $75,000 in damages.

And since the Times has declared they are planning to aggressively fight this thing Palin could end up with hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees.

      This is an interesting question. Remember Trump said he wanted to open up the libel laws so the press could be sued. This may be a test case that someone else is bankrolling. Just watched a documentary on the Gawker / Hulk Hogan case that turned out to be bankrolled by Thiel and after it was over I got on to see the news and BuzzFeed is being sued by a Russian who was in a dossier they posted. I think there is a concerted effort to destroy the press and anyone who reports on the absurdity of the "fake news" being flooded into the discourse. Today Rachel had an article about someone disseminating fake leaked documents to see if the media will report on them and then be shown to be passing along fake news so no one trusts them. Something is being orchestrated so that no one knows who to trust anymore. Wierd and scary times.

     "who committed a substantial portion of her adult life to public service,"


    What did Sarah Palin get out of it?

    Well coincidentally, a two story home built by first time home builder Todd (wink wink) who never built a house before that or after that as far as some people know.

    Not to change the subject, Todd, the first time two story house builder (wink wink), ironically built a wooden good neighbor fence that didn't last that long.

    If I remember correctly the wooden fence was structurally unstable and had to be removed. I guess it was a danger to their children and who would want that fence built by Todd, the first time home builder (wink wink), falling on their children and their children's friends?

    If I remember correctly, one question at the time was who built Sarah's house that was built down the road from a new ice rink built by the winning contractor of the city ice rink under Sarah's mayorship.

    If I remember correctly, it was said Mayor Sarah's house was built by Todd and some contractor friends. But if I remember correctly we will never know who built Mayor Sarah's house and where did the materials come from because if I remember correctly, coincidentally under Sarah's mayorship, she may have revised city building ordances regarding structures built in areas like Mayor Sarah's house did not require plans filed with the city or inspected by city inspectors to see who built her house and if it complies to city building ordances.

    At the time, if I remember correctly, some say some materials used by first time two story home builder Todd (wink wink) is similar to a neighboring ice rink that was built by the winning contractor under Sarah's mayorship.

    If I remember correctly, some say Sarah's house was built by the winning ice rink contractor under Sarah's mayorship. But who really knows who built Sarah's house?

    If I remember correctly, structures like the house built by first time home builder Todd (wink wink) was never inspected by city inspectors for small things like structural and electrical compliance standards. I don't know, maybe it was inspected? Does anybody know?

    Would I ever buy a house or worst case, even a two story house built by just anybody without being assured the house is safe with plans and periodic inspections filed and assured by city or county my family is going to call home? No way!

    As a father with a family, I would not know if her house is structurally sound or would catch on fire because of shoddy workmanship that violated city building ordances that would have been caught by inspectors who are highly trained in these matters to catch shoddy workmanship and materials if what was said is true?

    Mayor Sarah's house built by Todd down the road from the ice rink is a very nice looking house on the outside that Todd should be very proud of and I believe as a mother with five children, Sarah would be convinced her new house is safe and sound for her family and for family and friends who frequent her house.

    Sarah Palin is largely responsible for the bullying, nasty attitude evidenced today by some leaders. She started it all with her "sassy" retorts to real questions and almost rode that wave to the vice presidency. Thankfully, the better candidates won and we had eight years of adult leadership. Now, her celebrity reality TV idol is in the White House. Time to cash in. Anyone see her latest PAC financial report? Must be about zero by now.

    Today Sarah Palin posted a Tweet cheering on "the 14 words." For those not up on their murderous white supremacist lingo, the 14 words refer to a particularly vile Nazi slogan. There is nothing else this could be referring to in the context of Palin's comment. Nothing. It's a shoutout to white, Christian supremacy.

  24. Sarah has just stepped into a huge steaming pile of trouble!!

    From Raw Story:


    -- quote

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin whipped up a social media firestorm on Friday after a tweet praising President Donald Trump included a phrase associated with the Neo-Nazi movement.

    “Trump Gives Speech to the People of Poland, Says 14 Words That Leave Americans Stunned,” Palin wrote, with a link to a story about the president’s recent address in Warsaw. The article itself makes no mention of 14 words used by Trump.

    -- end quote

    The phrase "14 words" is a huge dog whistle to white supremacists and neo-Nazis. The "14 words" are: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."

    Twitter was not kind to Sarah:

    "I wouldn't include Abraham Lincoln on the list either. The emancipcation proclamation is the worst piece of legislation next to what followed with the civil rights act in the 1960's. Setting them free has only destroyed formerly white neighborhoods. Too bad Lincoln wasn't assassinated before he signed the emancipation proclamation. Then we'd still have a great W society instead of the N's that are indoctrinating and dumbing down white kids."
