Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin offered her thoughts on the controversy over Republican front-runner Donald Trump being stumped on foreign policy “gotcha” questions from radio host Hugh Hewitt, saying she would rather have a “tough” president than one who could “win a game of trivial pursuit.”

Palin said:

I think I would rather have a president who is tough and puts America first than win a game of trivial pursuit. I don’t know if other candidates were posed the same question, I don’t know if they have the answers. I don’t think the public gives a flying flip if somebody knows who, today, is a specific leader of a specific region because that will change.

      I’ve had that happen also on some occasions. Thought I was loosing my mind!

        You must be politically correct, you must not state facts against the agenda. I offered facts for consideration that were against the regime. It was removed. My point was strictly for someone to see another viewpoint.

      2. Maxine Smith says:

        No. That’s called censorship by liberals. They don’t want you to read/hear just how others feel.

  • Michael says:

    I haven’t seen any of the other candidates running for the Republican nomination come out and say to remove all illegals! None of them have said anything of any consequence to stop the crap and get the jobs back for Americans. I also haven’t seen any of the other candidates paying for their own campaign like he is doing! That alone is very refreshing that a rich person is willing to put his money where his mouth is and stop putting it in the pockets of working Americans whose income is steadily going down the tubes because of a reckless government! I’m a Democrat and I’m voting for Trump because he is the first one to speak up with a pair of balls!

    1. Terry Rushing says:

      Welcome aboard! You realize that Debbie is going to be mad at you don’t you?

    2. bobnstuff says:

      He has balls but no brain, He is reckless and doesn’t think before he speaks. Who is going to pay for his sending all Illegals home? I guess taxes will just have to go up, like double. Lets get someone who didn’t sleep through 5th grade civics and understands how our government work. I wish Kasich could win but I guess he isn’t stupid enough.

      1. Michael says:

        Do you realize what 20 million illegals cost this country? At $2,000 a month that is $40 billion dollars and for a year it is $480 billion. I think that is more than enough money to send them home! I might have reservations about his capabilities as well, but at least he is putting out there what he thinks would be a good thing to do. I don’t hear Hillary saying shit about anything that would help this country but for Christians rethinking their beliefs so more abortions can be done! Now, if you agree with her; then you and I would never see eye to eye on anything!

        1. bobnstuff says:

          Both your math and your numbers are way off but $200 to $300 billion would be the down payment to send them home plus a 5% drop in our GDP. Once you take them out of the work force you get another problem, a labor shortage which will drive up prices and a number of other things. That’s just for starters. The wall is a joke, the cost to build and maintain is high and since as of right now only about half the new comers come in that way it won’t stop the problem. You notice you have heard none of this from Trump. I have already said who I want and it isn’t Hillary. I support John Kasich. He wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He grow up in The Rocks, a true working mans neighborhood.

          1. reggie says:

            Let’s put unemployed and underemployed citizens to work. Many are no longer even counted because they’ve been dropped from the rolls. There would be no labor shortage.

          2. bobnstuff says:

            If you talk to the HR departments right now you will fine that in a number of areas there is a labor shortage right now, There are a little over 8 million unemployed in the country today, there are around 20 million help wanted ads right now. Because of the normal changes in our countries business cycles 4% to 5% unemployment is normal and healthy. Many of those people who dropped from the rolls have retired. Don’t believe everything you hear in the media, go check it out for yourself. The company I work for has never done much hiring in August but last week we trained 12 new people and are still short of people. We start at $9.00 per hour. With those facts in mind do you think pulling 8.6 million people out of the work force would help our country?

          3. reggie says:

            Yup, if they’re illegal, if they’re being paid under the table, and if they’re sucking our resources dry. No sympathy here for the present ‘open the doors and let every piece of scum in’. We have no idea who they are. My mother busted chops when she came here. Learned the language, assimilated, and paid taxes.

          4. bobnstuff says:

            Who is asking for an open door for illegals? I have seen no one saying that. The republicans are fighting to not fix the law that makes it easy for employers to hire them and to block any funding that will make it easier to deport them. No one is asking for a open door that I can see. We have more border agents today then ever and the President asked for more but was turned down. In order to become an American citizen you must speak and read English and pass a test that most native born couldn’t. No one is trying to change that.

          5. Judy McKinney says:

            Need to check a little closer on who NEEDS help, then stop paying the lazies who are drawing gov. support but don’t need it, and they might get a job–probably their first.

          6. bobnstuff says:

            If you want to stop people from cheating the system you need to hire more case works so they can check up on them. In to many cases the person getting the aid has never seen there case worker or anyone else Most people getting aid work, they are called the working poor.

          7. Judy McKinney says:

            Re your Motherjones article–do you really feel that Soc.Sec. is a Federal handout? People seem to forget we have PAID THAT IN, and the gov/congress, have stolen it.

          8. bobnstuff says:

            They haven’t stolen it, They put in IOU’s. in fact a bunch of out national debt is owed to Soc. Sec. about 16% of it. There never has been any money in Soc. Sec. from day one. When the right talks about how many people get government hand outs they include Soc. Sec. as well as Medicare and Unemployment. It’s all a numbers game to them. Because the unemployment numbers are now down they have gone to using work force numbers that are very misleading. I have found that many of the numbers used by the right when they bother to use any are meant to mislead.

          9. Judy McKinney says:

            ” as of right now only about half the new comers come in that way it won’t stop the problem.”
            How does the other half get here??

          10. bobnstuff says:

            Visa’s, they come in legal them just stay. That’s how the v9/11 terrorists got here.

        2. Judy McKinney says:

          Put out the info that all the “free stuff” stops next month, and a lot of the illigals would go home by themselves. Then hunt down the rest, while at the same time stopping new ones from coming over, and it might not be as difficult as you think. And use the money saved by not paying them, to send them home.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Over 3/4 of the illegals have jobs. They are here to work and send home money. All the numbers you see on their cost to tax payers are just guess’s. We really don’t know.

          2. Judy McKinney says:

            But are they jobs they pay taxes on, or are they under the table workers? They need to go, too. We need legals, who work and pay taxes, instead of bleeding the system.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            I agree that we need legal workers. Many do pay taxes by using fake SS#. Taxes they will never get back. This shadow economy needs to go but until the system is fixed nothing can be done. The president has done as much as he can. He is trying to get the illegals out of the shadows but he can only do so much wit EO’s. Congress needs to act.

      2. reggie says:

        They self deported before and will do it again. No jobs, no freebies, they go home to their countries. This is not their home, nor do they claim it as their home.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          They used to come and go until we tightened our border and now they have to stay because it’s to hard to come and go. You are right that when the jobs go away so do the Illegals but as long as people hire them they will come. If companies like the one building Trumps Hotel in DC would not hire them or the good people in Texas that hire them as maids with the blessing of the state government would stop they would go home and get a job building Fords..

          1. reggie says:

            Precisely, he needs to be called to task on that one. I still think he’s the best of the litter at this point, but am keeping a very open mind.

          2. bobnstuff says:

            He is a used car salesman, he will tell you what you want to hear. Even he will tell you he’s a salesman just trying to make the deal. Truth has little to do with it.

  • Charlie Jordan says:

    I agree, but although Trunp is tough, I prefer another that is also tough but is better qualified… Ted Cruz.

    1. Terry Rushing says:

      I like Ted too and he has been “on the scene” before Mr. Trump announced his interest, but for whatever reason Trump seems to be riding the crest of the wave of rebellion against Obama’s madness and the “establishment” Republican stupidity. Whatever or whoever it takes to break up the beltway playhouse is the one for me. One other thing I would like to see would be forcing the “establishment” republicans to make restitution to Sarah Palin for the shabby way they treated her in their attempt to ram another establishment “good ole boy” onto the ticket. (It had the same distinct foul odor as the establishment skulduggery of the 2014 Mississippi senatorial election.)

    2. In a heartbeat! All these Clowns screaming that he isn’t qualified certainly weren’t worried when the Muslim Kenyan Queen came on the scene! Cruz’s mother was born in Delaware, which qualifies him, same as Obama! At least Cruz’s dad loved the USA and became a citizen! Same as family, blood doesn’t make family, it is those who are there for you in your time of need that make family! Same in politics, Obama was never there to help anyone but himself, hates our Nation, never says one good thing about the USA, but praises this satanic worship of Islam and Allah/satan, while Cruz loves our Nation and it’s People and worships the One True God in Existence, the God of Israel and Christians, Who’s Son was Jesus! Islam is the Syphilis of the Soul and Obama is eaten away with it!

      1. USNavyPatriot says:

        With the diseased morality of Obama, his death from AIDS would be Poetic Justice! For the life of me, I can’t think of anything good he’s done. Giving Iran (enemy) an open door to nukes, giving state dinners to Muslim Brotherhood (enemy) and supporting them in sovereign Egypt, murdering Gaddafi to enable Suddan pipeline of arms through Benghazi to support Islamic terrorism in Syrian conflict while creating & training ISIS… Obama makes me sick to my stomach on so many different levels. What else has this evil, soulless homo done? Let’s see the list grow!

  • At least a President who knows how many States we have, duh, instead of 57, like the Kenyan Sodomy Queen, Hussein thinks! Put this Islamic Pig Queen in Gitmo, along with Hillary, Waterboard the hell out of them while they await execution for treason! Both Armed and Financed ISIS, from Bengazi and need to pay the ultimate penalty for their treason – DEATH!

    1. USNavyPatriot says:

      All you say is true! Not only did the Benghazi fiasco help create & arm ISIS, but the tyrant Obama Regime had CIA & our military deployed to train those evil ragheads to fight Obama’s Proxy War against Christians as well as to endanger existence of Israel with Iran Nuke Deal. Obama has turned out to be the #1 Terrorist in the World. #NotMyPresident

      Caneing works real well in some of the Asian countries. Some people don’t survive it but I hear it is very very very painful. An American teenager got caught with drugs and was sentenced to caining. He got 5 “swats” with the cane and almost didn’t survive.

      1. USNavyPatriot says:

        VietGong drove bamboo splinters up under fingernails. Old Hilldagard Thunderthighs would soon be telling the truth!

        1. 7papa7 says:

          Yes it would work very well. It would be nice to be able to hook up a zapper that every time she lied she would get tasered.

    3. bobnstuff says:

      Just how does this have anything to do with Trump and Miss Sarah? Oh if you want an American count out Cruz, he is no more an American then Obama.

      1. Whatever! Cruz is more American than anyone in the Democratic Party, and that’s a Fact, Jack!

        1. bobnstuff says:

          He is as American as Obama.

      2. Maxine Smith says:

        Cruz is more American than Obama will ever hope to be! He loves this country more than Obama will ever love it.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          Love of country has nothing to do with it. He was born of one American parent in an other country, Isn’t that what they were saying about Obama. In Obamas case it wasn’t true but in Ted’s it is.
