Who Is Advising Sarah Palin?
Tuesday, September 29, 2009 5:43 PM
In the nasty aftermath of the McCain-Palin ticket, Palin broke with many of the advisers she had worked with in the final days of the campaign. She went back to Alaska, surrounded by her longtime political team, including chief spokeswoman and top adviser Meg Stapleton and Kristan Cole, who helped Palin launch a legal defense fund to cover costs related to several ethics investigations in Alaska. In January, Palin launched a new political action committee, SarahPAC—a move widely interpreted as an effort to help forward her political ambitions. Between January and June, the PAC raised more than $730,000—with almost $270,000 of that going to staff and consulting fees. Palin hired Pam Pryor, a GOP operative who once worked for former representative J.C. Watts, as an adviser. In February, she also tapped Becki Donatelli, a longtime GOP consultant close to McCain, to run SarahPAC, but the two severed the relationship in April. Donatelli declined to comment and, like Pryor, directed all questions to Stapleton, who did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
Right after the August 7 to 8 attack on South Ossetia the President of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili was shocked he didn't get any back up from the US. He soon changed his tune, but it was clear he thought he had a reason to believe if he attacked the de facto Russian territory of South Ossetia and the Russian soldiers that he would not be alone. Who was feeding him that bull and why didn't they keep their word?
This was major because it has to do with missile shields, NATO, Israel and possible nuclear bombs going off.
We know John McCain gave us the delusional blithering Sarah Palin and he must be held accountable for his desperate attempt to win an election. What else would he do to win? Cindy McCain would not have needed to go to The Republic of Georgia with aid and soothing for Saakashvili if he hadn't been led to believe he should attack at that time, coincidentally, US elections were is process. The European Union report is better than nothing but it is only telling part of the story. (Why Is Cindy McCain Going To Georgia?)
McCain had a falling out with his adviser Randy Scheunemann, what all was that about? Whatever it was, it doesn't bother Sarah Palin because she is in bed with Scheunemann now.
The current report settles who started the So. Ossetia attack.
Report: Georgia Triggered War With Russia
SEPTEMBER 30, 2009
"For Moscow, the report's finding on who shot first is a significant victory, one that's likely to undermine efforts by Georgia President Mikheil Saakashvili to rally Western support behind him."
"The report notes that the United States, Ukraine and Israel supplied large scale economic and military aid to Georgia that allowed the country to double its military in the space of a few years."
BRUSSELS--A nine-month European Union investigation into the 2008 war in the Caucasus has concluded that Georgia triggered the conflict, but that Russia prepared the ground for war to break out and broke international law by invading Georgia as a whole.
Conclusions to the roughly 1,000 page report, released on Wednesday by Swiss diplomat Heidi Tagliavini, also found that Russia-backed South Ossetian militias committed atrocities and "ethnic cleansing" of Georgian villages during and since the war. It faulted Russian forces in control of the territory that either "would not or could not" control the South Ossetians.
The report found no evidence to back Russian claims that Georgia committed genocide on the night of Aug.7-8.
The conflict, which briefly brought the United States and Russia into Cold War-style confrontation, left some 850 people dead, 35,000 permanently displaced and Europe's security infrastructure severely weakened. Russian forces remain in occupation of the two territories, while Moscow has recognized them as independent states.
John "Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" McCain and Scheunemann finger prints were all over the Republic of Georgia and Mikheil Saakashvili, the rogue crook who thought he had the back up to take on Russia in South Ossetia. That's not all, they sent Cindy McCain, looking like White House material, on a sudden humanitarian stint.
"Cindy McCain, the wife of Sen. John McCain, flew Monday evening to the Republic of Georgia, where a military confrontation with Russia over disputed territory has become an issue on the presidential campaign trail."
August 26, 2008
"She's on the phone with the World Food Program, he's on the phone with Saakashvili," McCain adviser Nicolle Wallace told Time. "It's like this great picture of what they'll be like in the White House."
