“Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.”

To yellow, red and brown
And when the wind comes
Whistling by, they’ll

Honestly it’s offensive to me that so many folks who live in a oil producing state are so ignorant of basic business practices. Oil business that is!
First off the stability of a reasonable tax regime and the selling of a small portion of BPs Alaska assets has absolutely nothing to do with each other!!
This is how it works folks. When talking of a relatively small field the big guys go in create infrastructure, start the process by exploring, and drilling test wells. If it’s financially reasonable to keep that asset they do! If not, they sell it off to a smaller company that is able to put the time into the project and yes make a profit! Look here all you haters, you still drive cars, you still use cosmetics, you still use plastic items! I can go on and on!! Get a freaking grip!
And all this hate and discontent as ALL Alaskans are enjoying a PFD check of $1884. And here is how the PFD works
Hillcorp is a good company! A matter of fact they are actually bringing back over half that number you people keep spouting!! Packages will be offered, to those who might be laid off..
Interesting how the Ak liberals, Dems make this a big deal. I’m thinking since when would these people even care about the welfare or job security of a oil field worker anyway!!? Oh I’ve read the ugly coming from your side.. Your hypocrisy is obvious!! Move on!

AK Beat: Behold the Palin party fight song

What a week! Drunken brawl, witness who dares to talk about it gets fired, it spreads to mass media and now the spin is on! From an Alaskan’s point of view, the McKenna brothers will most likely feel the affect of their actions towards Mr Townsend or Mr Thompson, who ever in a negative way. I’ll let you know closer to IronDog time. The headlines where everywhere! Heck, it’s still hanging on to the news cycle. I’ve tried to let you know these past few years that Sarah and her family follow a different set of values than I believe most of us do.
Here are just a few..
Eric Thompson was having fun with friends and his wife at a party in South Anchorage on Saturday night. Thompson, who is 56 years old, was the designated driver for the evening, so he wasn’t drinking. But that was okay with him. He was among friends. It was a birthday party for twins Matt and Marc McKenna, who own McKenna Bros Paving
Palin Family Brawl Witness Gets Fired for Talking to Good Morning America
Eric Townsend, who also gave his account to Alaskan political blogger Amanda Coyne, was fired today for talking to the media.
It was a brawl in the family for the Palin clan.
Sarah Palin got into a fracas worthy of reality TV when she, husband Todd and their entourage of children allegedly got involved in a drunken brawl at an Anchorage house party, according to multiple reports.
The brawl was heard across the pond!
Palin family in Alaska brawl: ‘Alcohol was believed to be a factor’
Police confirm ‘verbal and physical altercation’ took place outside house party in Anchorage, where former governor Sarah Palin was reported to have shouted: ‘Do you know who I am?’
Here it comes — the PALIN SPIN
But with The Washington Post, “Good Morning America,” the New York Times and dozens of other media outlets all filing reports on the incident over the last few days, it’s clear that there’s a high level of interest in the events that transpired on that regrettable night in Anchorage.
Palin has not commented publicly on the episode, and there is little doubt that the former Alaska governor would rather talk about anything else.
But RealClearPolitics spoke with a source close to the Palin family, who wanted to provide their version of the events in question.
It’s a tale as old as time: A former vice-presidential nominee and her family roll up to an alcohol-soaked party in a stretch Hummer limousine, only to find themselves at the center of a bare-knuckle melee involving 20 people.

It was by the hand of Palin and her allies Alaska Democrats that Alaska has been in free fall for 7 years!

Sarah Palin was incoherent and some are alleging that she was possibly drunk on her TV channel as she babbled nonsensically in a response to Elizabeth Warren. Palin made little sense as she trailed off numerous times and looked rather bleary-eyed at the camera. The clip has gone viral on Facebook, and people have been sending around memes with the text from the clip, which is as follows:
We believe — wait, I thought fast food joints — hrm. Don’t you guys think that they are of the devil or something? Liberals, you want to send those evil employees who would dare work at a fast food joint that you just don’t believe in — thought you wanted to send them to purgatory or something until they all go vegan! Wages and picket lines, I dunno, they’re not often discussed in purgatory, are they? I don’t know. Why are you even worried about fast food wages uh…
Accompanying this rant, Palin seemed to flail her arms around and looked as though she should be holding a tumbler full of gin. Her speech was reminiscent of the Saturday Night Live skit “drunk uncle.” In this case, of course, it would be “drunk aunt.”
Palin has been accused of possibly being drunk numerous times in the past. Just a few weeks ago, she gave a speech at the Western Conservative Summit in which she also appeared to be under the influence of some type of substance, slurring her words and saying incoherent things. Some of the more confounding segments were when she called for President Obama’s impeachment….

There she is first on the list for Alaska’s liberals! Of course she is, it’s her failed legacy! Interesting it could not have happened without the Alaska Democrats, and big government types, along with those who have an unnatural hatred for the production of oil.. I find it ridiculous to think that this failed piece of crap that was created and birthed by Sarah Palin and her circle of sycophants is being promoted AGAIN! Let alone by the team of Palin, Moore, Wielocowski, French and Devon
I’m VOTING NO, NO FREAKING NO!!!! TO BRING BACK SARAH PALIN’s failed and economically destructive piece of legislation.

You can enjoy when you hear this highly unethical woman speak to corruption, ethics, responsibility, and reading the constitution!! Yes, you Alaska Democrats and all the rest anti development types can have Sarah Palin as an ally! Your alliance has really always seemed strong! You know what happens whenever Sarah chimes in, don’t you?
Palin calls into radio show about current oil tax debate
By Laurel Andrews
Sarah Palin said in a phone interview with Alaska Dispatch News on Tuesday that she plans to speak out against oil company-funded efforts to maintain the oil tax structure put in place in January.
“I don’t want Alaskans to be deceived,” she said.
Palin warned against oil companies’ multimillion-dollar attempt to maintain the oil tax structure created under Senate Bill 21, and “allowing crony capitalism to sneak back in our state and result in more Corrupt Bastards Club members.”
Palin was initially contacted regarding a speeding ticket she received in Wasilla on July 16. Palin was pulled over in a black Toyota Tundra pickup with the license plate “LOVUSA” and fined $154 for driving 63 in a 45 mph zone, according to the citation. She said she was driving home from an early-morning bikram hot yoga workout in Anchorage.
“I was thinking, I wasn’t speeding, I was qualifying,” she said.
Palin then weighed in on the repeal of the tax system dubbed Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share, her signature legislation signed into law in 2007 that brought the state billions of dollars in windfall income. ACES was replaced by Senate Bill 21 in January.
Palin has remained largely silent on the dismantling of ACES, and on Alaska politics in general. In May, she defended ACES during an interview on the “Bob and Mark Show,” a morning shock jock type show that airs on Anchorage station KWHL.
SB 21 was introduced at the beginning of the 2013 Alaska Legislature by Gov. Sean Parnell, Palin’s former lieutenant governor who took the governor’s office when Palin resigned in 2009.
SB 21 provides a more favorable tax structure for oil producers that supporters say will encourage investment and opponents say will cut billions from the state’s coffers without any benefit.
“The future of Alaska is resource development,” she continued. “The only way we’re going to be able to develop our oil and gas reserves are to do it ethically, to do it right, responsibly, and that comes down to Alaskans doing their homework, reading the constitution, and again remembering who owns the resources per our constitution,” Palin said.
