Mr.L: The Mysterious Murder of Justine Damond by PO Mohamed Noor

Details and facts about the murder of Justine Damond by police officer Mohamed Noor in Minnesota are slow and sketchy.  Is there information about this tragic murder and the officer who pulled the trigger that is being covered up by the Mayor and Chief of Police of Minneapolis?

Mr.L: Sarah Palin’s World of Pain Continues to Reign Down on the Ruling Class

This week, Bernie Quigley who writes for The Hill wrote a very important piece where he discussed former Governor Sarah Palin as the person solely responsible for the political rise of Donald Trump.  Those who are long time listeners and followers of my show know that I have made the same point:
Hear me: “No Palin No Trump
"How Trump Embraced Palinism and Won the White House"

Currently, Palin is involved in a lawsuit against the New York Times.  This is a libel case she and her lawyers filed after the Times decided to publish an article right after the Rep. Scalise shooting where they rehashed a commonly known false claim that Palin and her PAC caused the shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords in 2011.  The Times has since called that article an “honest mistake”, a claim that I don’t buy.   Quigley isn’t buying it either.  He believes that this latest attack is just another in a long line from the media on their favorite target Palin.

Quigley writes:
“This is mnemonic slander, that is, slander of Palin by vague and unsubstantiated association with political terrorism. In fact, it was The New York Times and other eastern outlets - the phrase “Eastern Establishment” had become perfunctory - that had set their sights (to coin a phrase) on Palin. Why? Because very simply put, Sarah Palin would bring an end to their world, and she has. She brought apocalypse to the eastern establishment."

Yes, apocalypse is the best word to describe what her emergence onto the national stage years ago was like for them.  Many of them didn’t know who she was. Some of them couldn’t pronounce her last name correctly.  They didn’t understand the place she was from. They couldn’t stand what she stood for and they absolutely loathed the people who she connected with the most.

This is why many of them supported and voted for Obama.  For them, Obama was just like them—mostly over educated, spent most of his life in academia and government and who never worked a real job in his life.  These are the same people who supported Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump for the same reason. Even though Trump is wildly successful—he’s is not one of them.

The “eastern establishment” that Quigley refers to is yet another label for what most people know as the “political class”, “UniParty” or, what conservative writer Angelo Codevilla dubbed as the “ruling class” back in 2010.

Sarah Palin has been engaged in a war with the ruling class since she was thrust onto the national stage when she was picked to run for Vice President back in 2008.  For Palin, it has very much been a guerilla war.

Instead of prematurely mounting a campaign running herself and her family headlong into a meat grinder, she jagged and weaved.  First, Palin helped fundamentally change the Congress in 2010.  Next, she helped get fresh faces such as Ted Cruz, Ben Sasse and Joni Ernst into the Senate in 2014.  Finally, a Palin backed outsider like Donald Trump winning the White House in 2016 was just another battleground won in her movement force strategy against the established order.

As a longtime observer of Palin, I doubt that this is the last move on her chessboard.

Mr.L: If Alaskan Chattering Class Are Bored They Need To Find A Hobby

I really hate, hate, HATE to have to link up to the Alaska Dispatch News and this little bastard writer Paul Jenkins and give them clicks, but I’m afraid I have to in order to make my point.  Last week, the paper published an article titled “Sarah Palin Should Run For Governor.  I’m serious.” 

Writer Jenkins’ main reason why Palin should do it?  He and the Alaskan political chattering class are bored.  Oh really? Well then...maybe you all should go find a hobby.  Or better yet, maybe some of you should revisit journalism ethics 101 and get back to the basics of unbiased serious reporting and Op- Ed writing.  

The article is beyond laughable.  After Jenkins calls Palin “crazy” “half baked” “quirky” “dysfunctional” and he who thinks she’s a “quitter” “lightweight” and “paranoid”, he then makes the case for why she should return to Juneau and solve, once again, all of Alaska’s current problems.

How can anyone take a so called reporter like this seriously? No wonder why these brick and mortar old media outlets are either going bankrupt or becoming extinct!  On top of that, the snark level in this article is beyond revolting. 

This little prick has the audacity to re-print old innuendos that have been long debunked ie: Troopergate and ( oh geez ... not this shit again) Palin hunting wolves from helicopters.  Hey I got an idea!  Since Palin is suing the New York Times for recycling the 2011 lie that she and her PAC caused the Gabby Giffords shooting, while she’s at it, she might as well sue Paul Jenkins and Alaska Dispatch and make it a 2 for 1 special! 

Here’s the thing… when Jenkins says he’s serious about Palin running for Governor again and wanting her to win—he is.  These left wing idiots like to throw around their snark about her among themselves in their circles, they giggle and mock about how they think she’s dumb and a lightweight, and whatever other ridiculous insult they hurl at her. 

But these people aren’t totally stupid.  Deep down they know.
