Sarah Palin Employee, Rebecca Mansour: BIG. FAT. LIAR.
May 24, 2011

The face that launched a thousand insults

Super-sized queen of vitriol, Rebecca Mansour, has put her big foot right in the poo.

It seems that failed-screenwriter Mansour, the inelegant voice who puts words in Palin’s mouth, got very “friendly” with an online identity and shared quite a few tidbits about life with the Palins – among other things – via Direct-Message Twitter. The unknown identity has passed those Tweets to the right-wing Daily Caller blog, who published some of them yesterday.

The Daily Caller had, of course, contacted Mansour prior to publication. Mansour replied that the Tweets weren’t hers, claiming they were Photoshopped – and even made up a story about how the Photoshopping came about:

“I did actually send him one direct message. He was asking for – it was like something really innocuous – he was just asking for information about something. And I just replied and said, ‘no’ or something like that. And then the kid then used that and started to create direct messages. And that was like a real serious thing for me because I realized anyone can do that with like a screencap,” Mansour explained.

Mansour playing dumb that way isn’t going to work with anyone in the media because they’ve known the real her for a long time – remember Mansour’s infamous “surveyors’ marks” lie? – and the Daily Caller wasn’t going to be fobbed off with the usual Palin Camp ‘Photoshop” bullshit dogwhistle:

TheDC then took steps to authenticate whether the messages were real, including logging into a Hotmail account that received email announcements from Twitter with the content of the direct messages in them. Two forensic computer analysts verified that the emails had been sent from Twitter’s servers after searching the message source code for signs of forgery.

Presented with this evidence, Mansour changed her story from an initial denial to anger (“this is really kind of skeezy”), bargaining (“can I just appeal to you to leave the Bristol stuff alone?”), and sadness at the consequences of her words (“this is going to destroy my reputation simply because people will say, ‘why were you sending a direct [message to a Palin activist]?’”).

Perhaps the deservedly-lonely Bekki fell in love with the avatar of an attractive young man and imagined she was having a “personal, private” cyber-relationship with a “friend”. Reading the Tweets, two things stand out: 1) she was so into him he was ‘reading her mind’, and 2) she was aware she was being indiscreet.

Finally, rather than answer questions about the context of the messages, Mansour sent a short statement saying the messages were part of “personal private conversations between myself and someone who I thought was a friend.”

The Palin camp screws up so often it’s hardly noteworthy any more, but what is definitely surprising is some of the responses from the Palin Cult; some of them are more than ready to throw ‘RAM’ under the famous Palin bus (where she would have plenty of company with whom she’s on first-name terms):

technopeasant
It’s one thing if you are gofer in the campaign and you tell tales out of school but when you are in charge of SarahPAC, Palin’s fundraising arm you are in a position of responsibility that unfortunately reflects favorably or unfavorably on your boss as the case may be. It just goes with the territory.

illegalpointofview
It’s not good. she herself is saying it’s confidential and she shouldn’t be repeating.

crunchingk
It looks like ram lied to dc if so she’s probobly toast!well maybye this will get team palin to get a pro media machine this is the bigleages!

c4pfan
I do trust Sarah to do what’s best for her & if it’s without RAM, that’s fine by me.

Palin_Patriot
She didnt even know the person !!!! It was some random person online … Maybe RAM was just trying to show off or whatever. I dont know but the bottom line is RAM is hurting Sarah and she has not even announced yet.

I am sure RAM is a great person and everything, but the reality is she proved she does not have the discipline to be involved in a presidential campaign. Thats not a knock on her, but this battle in 2012 is for all the marbles. Axelrod and Plouffe would eat RAM alive if Romneys hired guns didnt do it first. I dont think Sarah has any choice but to cut ties with RAM over this. This is not going to just blow over by itself.

Bratch
How can any intelligent person have such intimate conversations with someone they’ve never met in person? It’s mind-boggling.

Vendome
Rebecca: Whoever told you “just be yourself” couldn’t have given you worse advice.

freedumb2003
Is she young and part of the whole “twitter-I-am-in-Starbucks-restroom-taking-a-number-2” generation? Otherwise how could anyone be so stupid as to say such things?

Lazlo in PA
Mybe I’m ugly, but not as outright stupid as this moron Rebecca. Can you think of a more ill advised thing to do?

She should be fired immediately. What else is the Daily Caller withholding about the inner working of the family? Having her name to this and the fact that she is the supposed right hand man of Palin puts this too close.

DeVore is a solid Conservative and a lot of us were upset with Palin backing the RINO. At no point did anyone get the impression that he is a sleaze looking for a drive time radio slot. I don’t like it.

onyx
Bad form on Mansour’s part to betray a trust with Sarah Palin to share *confidential* information with anyone.

harmonium
Her tight inner circle doesn’t really get discretion too well, do they?

A few of the Palinutz think Mrs Palin should give Blabbermouth Bekki a break …

sarahpalinrocks2 to Palin_Patriot
RAM is smart. She can explain this when given a chance. The Bristol comments are the most embarrassing in my opinion. RAM will know better next time and choose her online confidants with greater discretion.

…. but only a few ….

Palin_Patriot to sarahpalinrocks2
(referring to President Obama) He’s going to be twice as dangerous from a “running a campaign” angle as he was in 2008, and you want Sarah to counter that with RAM, of the “let me tweet some really damaging things to some person online I just met”?

Now, ask yourself why a right-wing blog should be dissing Mrs Palin …

Is this the answer?

Sarah Palin [via wordsmith Mansour] launched a lengthy attack on The Daily Caller via Facebook on Wednesday in which she slammed the conservative-leaning news organization for not featuring her quotes prominently enough.

HAPPY MAY 24TH, BEKKI – FRANK BAILEY’S BOOK, “BLIND ALLEGIANCE TO SARAH PALIN”, IS OUT TODAY. FRANK WAS ONCE SARAH PALIN’S ‘RIGHT-HAND MANSOUR’. ENJOY YOUR VACATION!

Update:

Those wacky Taiwanese of Next Media Animation have already made a figure of fun of Mansour, depicting her in their latest cartoon furiously Tweeting, with steam bursting from her ears:

Update 2:

Visiting briefly from her exile in Siberia, Bekki Mansour was spotted on June 29th, stalking Sarah Palin at the premiere of Palin’s Tribute to Herself, The UnderFetid.

Will Jesus Palin Rise from the Dead?
April 21, 2011

This lady knows her stuff. She’s studied the bible and she knows that Jesus Palin will come …. AGAIN.

The Sarah Palin Cult followers write often and fondly about her favorable comparison with that other Jesus, you know the one, dirty librul from Muslinland.

Hark! I hear a Lamb of Sarah bleating now….

“That Sarah Palin has, through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit a heart filled with great joy, perseverance, is charismatic, vibrant and effective, has spiritual gifts and leads a Christian life is obvious for all who look at her and hear her words through an unbiased eye and ear.

The answer to the question about Palin’s possible political future lies with the definition of the ”mission” that she has been empowered by the indwelling Spirit to undertake.

The mission could be to so impress multitudes by her Christian walk, her pro-life beliefs, her dedication to home and hearth, to family, to the poor, to moral values and to the betterment of mankind, that she leads people to Christ. If she never tries for or achieves elective office at any level ever again, but through her empowered mission changes untold thousands of lives for the better, than of her it would be said “well done thy good and faithful servant”.

Jesus Palin’s patriots constantly bemoan her persecution at the hands of the unbelieving lamestream media and predict she will be crucified in a series of tell-all books coming out in the very near future …. she bears her terrible cross for us, sob ….

“The woman who stands before you isn’t what she claims to be.

She’s even had the nerve to criticize us Pharisees. We are the MEDIA, the righteous of the land. She slandered us and blasphemed our gods. We will not let her stand.

We are the one true oracle of the age. Who is this plebian fishmonger to say what is and what is not? We have commanded her to be silent. Why does she disobey?

Not a bribe she will take, nor to Caesar will she bow. So we took her to the COURIC, and now she stands condemned.

Hear all you Pharisees. Hear all you praetorians. Here the judgment of the COURIC. Bribe the false witnesses. Slander her children and friends. Take what little she has. Cheat, accuse, and lie until all the fools who sing her song believe she is false and wrong…

What is truth? Pontius Pilate, quoted in John 18:38”

UrantiaSojourn.com

But it’s not only her radical fundamentalist Christianist cult members who worship Jesus Palin; godless heathens are welcome to get in on the worship action, too:

“As long as the planets orbit our sun, we will revolve around our Sarah. We vow never to be broken off from her “pull” and become lost in the political outer space because we have come to love the power and brilliance of our sun that is Sarah.”

Our Sun making the grass grow in Alaska

Jesus Palin is so worshiped and adored that that other Jesus (the brown-skinned hippie, you know the one) might be expected to attend a church service in praise of her today – if he were even admitted, that is.

Palin herself hasn’t stepped foot in a church for many years, except for publicity.

After a fire at their local church, the Palins hurry to get there before the TV cameras leave

Perhaps this is the reason she avoids actual church services.

Watch, as a visiting pastor from darkest Africa (yeah, the country) offers his prayers to protect Mrs Palin from voodoo in Wasilla, making sure she never again has to carry a shrunken head in case some thankless Alaskan casts an evil spell on her in the supermarket car park.

And why would Our Jesus Sun Palin stir herself to go to church, anyway? She doesn’t need to fake going to church any more, she gets $100,000 a throw to talk about religion instead of practicing it – which suits her just fine. All she has to do is decorate herself with gaudy Jesus jewelry (like her hilarious Vajazzle for Jesus) and even the media will swallow her Christianism.

Sarah Palin has a fake symbol for any occasion:

* a disabled baby to wave around like the Lion King to demonstrate her faux “motherhood” (along with a ridiculous story about how he sprung from her very own loins);
* flags and trashy flag trinkets distributed thickly about her home, office and person proclaim her fake “patriotism” – when, in reality, she has no respect for the US Flag at all, given she frequently and unrepentantly trashes it, according to the US Flag Code

* Blue Stars wherever she can insert them (so you can’t possibly miss them) inspire her to claim herself the mother of a “combat” vet (unfortunately for Mrs Palin, the Army doesn’t class chauffeuring the Top Brass around as “combat” – but she is certain not to let that stop her bullshit).

The Schvitzer of Wasilla

But Sarah Jesus Palin’s most egregious co-opting of symbolism to which she is not entitled is her wearing of the Star of David in an awkward effort to persuade the brain-dead that she really is the second coming of Queen Esther. And that’s not even the worst thing she’s done to the Jews.

She loves to “refudiate” ‘peaceful Muslims’ every chance she gets, but if the day ever comes when they can be of benefit to her then expect her to be all over their symbolism, claiming she’s always had the utmost respect for the Queen of England, or whatever she thinks sounds convincing.

But- wait! Could Sarah Palin also be Mary the Virgin Mother? This desperate fan freak thinks so:

“Beautiful and true and veritable mother, O Sarah of Alaska …she is a mom of moms in so many ways, so many senses … Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper, and Trig, her five wonderful kids–and she is now a grandmother too …but beyond her own family, think and reflect for a moment on where we stood on 28 August, 2008, the night of barack hussein obama’s DNC acceptance speech: There seemed to be no hope for a counterforce to the juggernaut of the Left and its “anointed” “messiah” … then, then, on the brilliant dawning of the morrow, in the town of Dayton, Ohio, a young mom stepped out of the shadows and into the Heart of America forever … ever since Sarah Palin Day, 29 August, ’08, think of the hopes, the dreams, the resolves, the courage, the joy, the light, the determination, the unquenchable martial and fighting spirit, the LOVE that she has brought forth, has engendered, has “procreated” in so many millions upon millions upon millions of hearts–young hearts, old hearts, Democrat hearts, Republican hearts, Independent hearts, Northern hearts, Southern hearts, Eastern hearts, Western hearts … AMERICAN HEARTS …then there are the delightful and pointed and neat neologisms and turns of phrase she has brought forth into the mind and vocabulary and lexicon of America, such as “refudiate” and “death panels” … then there are the new and courageous paths of political courage she has blazed and brought to birth: The fearless lady who never, ever retreats nor surrenders, but does strategically RELOAD, to fight again on another day … we are witnesses right now, perhaps, to a new way of running for the Presidency, initiated and brought forth by Sarah … but whether she becomes POTUS in 2012/2013 or later, just as George Washington of Virginia is the Father of His Country, so Sarah Palin, Mom From Alaska, will forever be the Mother of Her Country!!!!”

All of the above vomit-inducing worship has been lifted directly from the racist hate blog dedicated to Sarah Palin, Conservatives4Palin.

A Message to Sarah Palin from the Gulf

DON’T YOU DARE CHANT TO US!

To those calling for a civil war (update)
March 29, 2010


by Sgt C, USMC

I can’t speak for all, but in my case – the moment you declare civil war, you’re no longer civilians. The moment you attack the Constitution, you’re now enemies of that Constitution. And I swore to defend and support and if necessary give my life for that Constitution and utilize every tool, technique, and weapon at my disposal to do so. And trust me, I’m not alone.

It’s been said that the military is always preparing for war. That is true. We prepare for combat every day. We ran 5 miles today to the rifle range and shot nearly 200 rounds a piece at targets and then ran back. However, we also pray for peace. I would love one day to be completely unnecessary. But alas, I am a realist, and I know that day will never come.

The headlines of the last week have reminded me more of glimpsing at the S2 Daily Briefing Sheets while in theater or the Al-Jazeera than the NY Times or the Washington Post. Think about that for a moment, let it sink in.

Before I get into the main premise of this article – I need to make two statements here.

First and foremost , when it comes to the back and forth of who did what to whom and why – I don’t give a @!$%#. It doesn’t change the action. In life we’re judged by our actions, nothing more, nothing less. One of the greatest things of the military is when it comes to an enemy, the politics behind the situation – don’t matter in accomplishing that mission. For the military , life is simple in that regard.

Secondly, Regardless of your political ideology, you’ve earned the right as US Citizens to say your piece – no matter how wrong it may be. That is your right, and I will give my life to protect it.

But this government of ours is a democracy. We vote for our representatives, and they vote in our interests. Sometimes, the votes don’t go our way. That’s life, better luck next time. Exhaust your legislative options, and then focus on gaining the required votes and/or seats to achieve your desired legislative vote next election time. That’s the way things work.

But the SECOND you start committing acts of violence and vandalism, then you’ve usurped that Constitution. You in a way have assaulted it. And then you and I (I being every servicemember who has sworn to defend said Constitution) will have a MAJOR PROBLEM.

For those of you calling for a civil war, I implore you to stop and think about what you’re saying. Look around your neighborhood and your city. Now imagine using that terrain to survive. Imagine dodging semi-automatic rifle fire as you scramble from cover to cover, dragging your wounded child behind you. Imagine the deafening report of a mortar as it strikes the ground a 150 feet in front of you, the overpressure enough to shatter your teeth and perforate an ear drum. Try and envision a Stryker rolling through neighbor’s front lawn or a F/A-18 making lazy loops over your head in Close Air Support for the troops in the distance.

[snip]

Now I ‘d like to disperse a myth here – many of you think that US military would not fight civilians. I can’t speak for all, but in my case – the moment you declare civil war, you’re no longer civilians. The moment you attack the constitution, you’re now enemies of that constitution. And I swore to defend and support and if necessary give my life for that Constitution and utilize every tool, technique, and weapon at my disposal to do so. And trust me, I’m not alone.

I hope some of you heed my words and cool the rhetoric and focus on achieving your goals diplomatically instead of physically. It would never want to receive a frag order to Maryland, or North Dakota, or Texas, but it is an order I will follow no matter how much it pains me to do so.

Sarah Palin’s Tax Cheating Uncovered – Phase One
February 3, 2010

Sarah and Todd Palin have for years owned their own little holiday paradise in Alaska. There is one partner, a hunky nobody with poor moral standards.

For years there have been two double-storey holiday chalets on the property – complete with sauna and a nice big shop to house their 4-wheelers and snowmobiles.

And for years the Palins and their buddy have hidden these holiday homes from the Mat-Su Borough’s property tax assessor.

The Mat-Su Borough relies on the honor system for these remote holiday chalets …. so there ya go. The Palin worshipers will claim “it’s all the gubmint’s fault!” But everyone knows how an honor system works (or doesn’t).

Sarah Palin, former Mayor of Wasilla (in the Mat-Su Borough) has been cheating her own community for years – while the Palin children attend the schools funded by the Borough, while Trig Palin’s special needs have been met by the Borough, while the family gets its flu shots from the Borough, and showers in water provided by the Borough – not to mention using those nice, clean, smooth, plowed roads for their nice, clean, smooth Cadillac Escalade …..

You can read all about the Palin family’s “favorite family vacation spot” here.

In 2000, Palin declined to endorse local rep Vic Kohring (one of the many former Alaskan politicians now in prison) because he refused to pay his property taxes. As Mayor, she said, she understood how vital it is that residents not cheat their communities of property tax.

Sarah Palin has millions in the bank but she doesn’t have the brains to understand that tax cheats who run for the office of Vice-President will be found out. This is just the beginning.

Politifact awards Sarah Palin “Liar of the Year”
December 19, 2009

Finally, Sarah Palin has actually won something! Her outstanding entry in the category of outright lies – ‘Death Panels’ – scored a resounding 61% of the vote in Politifact’s poll. She beat seven other major liars.

The editors of PolitiFact.com, the fact-checking Web site of the St. Petersburg Times, have chosen it as our inaugural “Lie of the Year.”

Politifact has a list of Sarah Palin’s more egregious lies here.

Sarah Palin also won the Punchumgum award for “Liar of the Century” with this gold-medal lying about her “son”.

Here’s another favorite lie: “I’m a runner” … since when are genuine female runners raddled with cellulite?

Remembering L’Aquila
April 7, 2009

It’s not possible to not love Rome. It’s also not possible to not enjoy getting away from it occasionally. I wanted to see the Gran Sasso. It’s a mountain in central Italy. That’s where L’Aquila was, too.

It’s a small town by my standards, but not by Italian rural standards. The thing that struck me was that it’s a family kind of place. No big commercialism, no tourism, no industry, no subdivisions – just the town that services dozens of farming towns.

And it’s an old town, a very old town, in a mountain valley. What could be nicer?

But L’Aquila is no more. Mother Nature has shattered L’Aquila after 800 years.
