An Open Letter to Sarah Palin

…By Jonas E. Alexis


“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).


Sarah Palin

Dear Sarah Palin,

First of all, you have served as the 9th Governor of Alaska from 2006 until 2009. Thank you. Your service certainly means much to us all.

Just to clear out some confusion that may juggle into your mind, I hereby state forthrightly and categorically that I am proud to be an American. I am currently living abroad, but my heart is America. Now let us go on to the important issues.

You recently delivered a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in which you said that Republicans need to branch out in order to “rebuild the country.” Republicans, you further declared, should not “re-brand a party” and the “talk about re-branding the GOP instead of restoring the trust of the American people” is not working. You suggested that something drastic has to happen.

You moved on to say, Now, we can’t just ignore, though, that we just lost a big election. Came in second. Out of two. Second position on the dog sled team—it’s where the view never changes and the view ain’t pretty…As conservatives, we must leave no American behind. And we must share our message of freedom and liberty to all citizens, even those who may disagree on some issues because there is solid common ground in fighting against government overreach and for independence. And those who disagree with us on some issues, they’re not our enemies, they’re our sisters and brothers. They’re our neighbors and friends.”[1]

That was a great statement, and I am confident that you will still consider me as your brother after reading this letter.

You finally declared, “It’s time we all stop preaching to the choir and let’s grow.”[2] There is no doubt that you want the Party to grow. But the Party cannot grow if it continues to perpetuate lies and fabrications. Back in 2008 you and the neoconservative mob perpetuated the hoax that Iran wants to wipe Israel off the map. We know that the “wiped off the map” phraseology is a fabrication, as it did not exist in the original translation.[3]

What the president actually said is that the Zionist regime ruling Jerusalem is not good for the Middle East and much of the world. As Jonathan Steele of the Guardian put it, “The Iranian president was quoting an ancient statement by Iran’s first Islamist leader, the late Ayatollah Khomeini, that ‘this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time,’ just as the Shah’s regime in Iran had vanished. He was not making a military threat. He was calling for an end to the occupation of Jerusalem at some point in the future. The ‘page of time’ phrase suggests he did not expect it to happen soon.”[4]

Mrs. Palin, this is widely known among academics who have worked on the translations.[5] Shiraz Dossa of St. Francis Xavier University for example declared that the military threat has not been Iran’s position. Dossa concluded, “There is a huge chasm between the correct and the incorrect translations. The notion that Iran can ‘wipe out’ U.S.-backed, nuclear-armed Israel is ludicrous.”[6]

Juan Cole of the University of Michigan came to the same conclusion.[7] Even Ethan Bronner of the New York Times conceded the point that there were some errors and contentions in the translation.[8]

One of Iran’s foreign minister responded to all the hoopla this way: “How is it possible to remove a country from the map? He is talking about the regime. We do not recognize this regime legally.”[9]

In other words, just like Russia now has a different color without Bolshevism, Israel will have a different color without the Zionist regime terrorizing the Middle East and sabotaging the Palestinians.

If this is news to you, Mrs. Palin, please check your public library and look for some of the works that have been published by Jewish historians on this subject. Check out Ilan Pappe’s The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine and The Forgotten Palestinians: A History of the Palestinians in Israel; Avi Shlaim’s The Iron Wall: Israel and the Arab World; Benny Morris’ Righteous Victims: A History of the Zionist-Arab Conflict, 1881-2001 and 1948: A History of the First Arab-Israeli War.

Certainly there are dozens of other scholarly works written on this subject, and many Jewish historians try to be fair on this topic. The GOP is spitting on their laborious and academic work which took them years to accumulate if members of the GOP continue to marshal the lie that the Palestinians are “an invented people.”

Reagan called the Soviet Union “an evil empire,” but Reagan was not against the Soviet people in general. He was against, well, the evil empire. It is the same thing with Iran. If that seems to be nonsense, keep in mind that Jews in Iran are respected and have the freedom to worship as they see fit.

Let me grant you the premise for a moment that Ahmadinejad did actually use the “wiped Israel of the map” phraseology. What would be your solution? Should we go ahead and bomb Iran? If yes, then should we go ahead and bomb Israel because Rabbi Ovadia Yosef of the Shas Party declared that we “must send missiles to [the Palestinians] and annihilate them”?[10] Should we sanction Israel because Rabbi Manis Friedman declared that, with respect to the Palestinians, we should “destroy their holy sites. Kill men, women and children (and cattle)”?

And if you think the rabbis were just bluffing, what makes you think that Iran was not doing the same thing? Do you have any rigorous, academic, and scholarly evidence that Iran has been routinely supporting terrorist organizations? Why would Iran declare that they too wanted to fight terrorism after 9/11?[11] Did you know that Israel supported terrorist organizations such as the MEK? Should we go ahead and bomb Israel because they killed Iranian scientists? Did you know that North Korea tested their (failed) missiles and Iran doesn’t have even one missile?

So which country should we invade first? The country that has zero nuclear weapons or the country that has been telling the West openly that they are trying to build nuclear warheads? And by what rationalization should we bomb Iran now and not North Korea? Why hasn’t the neoconservative gangsters been chanting “bomb North Korea”—only “sanctions”?

And if having nuclear weapons were the real issue, should we bomb China, England, Russia, France, and other nations which actually have nuclear weapons as well? Do you really think that Iranian officials are that blind and that they cannot recognize a double standard? Please help us unpack this mystery.

Frankly, Mrs. Palin, as I rational person I am confused about these issues. If you are not, then put your thinking cap on. Do not let the neoconservative machine do the thinking for you.

Moreover, if you still maintain that Ahmadinejad wants to wipe Israel off the map and that he hates Jews, how has Jews been treated in Iran? Do you know that Ahmadinejad never attacks Jews in Iran? Can you unpack this obvious contradiction for us? For example, Ciamak Mor-sathegh, head of the Jewish hospital in Tehran, declared that “anti-Semitism is not an eastern phenomenon, it’s not an Islamic or Iranian phenomenon—anti-Semitism is a European phenomenon.”[12] Synagogues, a major Jewish library, and Jewish hospitals in Iran “haven’t been touched.”[13]

Moreover, many Jews have voiced their opinions and even opposed some of Ahmadinejad’s comments without repercussion. Both Maurice Mohtamed (Jewish member of the Iranian Majlis or parliament) and Haround Yashayaei (chairman of Iran’s Jewish Council) dissented, even sending letters to Ahmadinejad in protest. Some Jews left Iran for Israel, “thinking that Israel was an economic paradise,” but later returned to Iran because “Israel has not lived up to their expectations.”[14] Mrs. Palin, you certainly owe the American people an explanation if you continue to perpetuate lies.

When asked what he would do if one of his children happens to marry a Jew, Ahmadinejad responded, “I would have to see who that Jewish man or woman would be. I see love amongst people as completely acceptable. There are many Jews living in Iran with whom we are very close. There are … some Muslims that marry into Jewish families or marry Christians. I – we have no such problems.”[15]

Mrs. Palin, please understand that Ahamadinejad is not against the United States or Israel. He is against the Zionist regime which has become the dominant worldview in both America and Israel. And it is this Zionist worldview, as many have argued, that is the real enemy of decent Jews everywhere.[16] Israeli leaders implicitly or indirectly agree with this assertion.

Shaul Mofaz, an Israeli opposition leader, unequivocally declares that “The world is not sick of Israel, the world is sick of Netanyahu.” Why? Mofaz sees that Netanyahu only cares about his plan. If anyone gets in his way, he will grind him to dust. Mofaz continued, “Prime minister, please tell me who our biggest enemy is. The US or Iran?”[17]

Mrs. Palin, please understand that there are rational people in Iran as well. Reason is not limited to the West only. For example, you stated back in 2010 that Obama needed to speed up the process of declaring war on Iran.[18] And what was the justification for that? That Iran is building nuclear weapons? That Ahmadinejad supported terrorism? That Ahamadinejad wanted to wipe Israel off the map?

Ahmadinejad of course put this scenario to the entire world, which is rational and defensible: “Let’s even imagine that we have an atomic weapon, a nuclear weapon. What would we do with it? What intelligent person would fight 5,000 American bombs with one bomb?”[19] Mrs. Palin, you know too well that our forces have surrounded the Middle East, and Iran is not a threat to Israel or America. Please do not scare the American people like Bush did when he was in the process of invading Iraq.

How should the Republican party “rebuild the country”? Here is my advice.

Tell the American the truth! America would be in much better shape if an appointed representative like yourself would come out and say,

“My fellow Americans, we are sorry about all the lies and fabrications which have driven the American economy into disaster. We are sorry for the war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, etc. We also are sorry for the thousands upon thousands of Muslim families and precious American soldiers who have lost their lives for a complete lie. Forgive us. We want to strengthen the GOP and we are tired of playing double standards, particularly with our foreign policy.

“We also want to stop the killing of innocent lives anywhere—be they in the Middle East or America. The GOP does not support abortion in America, but we have supported perpetual wars in the Middle East and the killing of innocent people.  Recently one of our folks, Dick Cheney, has praised the Obama administration for his drones policy. In other words, little babies are more precious than people in the Middle East. I don’t think people in the Middle East would like that policy.

“More recently, we have learned that almost six in ten Americans now believe that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were not worth the price. Only a few Americans (two in ten) actually say that the war helped.[20] My fellow Americans, we have betrayed you all and we certainly have been seduced by the Zionist ideology, and we want to think things over this time.

“We also want to think about our unconditional support for Israel. The Founding Fathers would have been upset had they known that we are supporting a foreign entity with at least three billion dollars every year. The Founding Fathers have almost unanimously declared that they wanted to make ‘Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none.’ That certainly is not compatible with what our Party (the GOP) has been doing. And if a person such as Ron Paul tries to go back to that tradition, we call him ‘a vicious anti-Semite.’

“My fellow  Americans, we want to go back to first principles. We want to be fair and honest with our foreign policy, our dealings with the Muslim world, Israel or any other nation. Will you forgive us? Will you trust us once again?”

I am sure that the vast majority of Americans will listen to you, Mrs. Palin.

You made this statement in your speech, “My advice to college kids is: You gotta be thinking Sam Adams not drinking Sam Adams.” Why didn’t you tell those college kids what George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, among others, said about any foreign entity? Why are you cherry-picking? You certainly would not be the first person to do so.

Mrs. Palin, I have a dear friend of mine who highly esteems the Founding Fathers but he has all kinds of rationalizations for supporting perpetual wars. When I pointed out to him what the Founding Fathers actually said about making alliance with other nations, he declared, “We are living in a different era. The world is not safe anymore.” (Do we need to get rid of the Constitution also because we are living in a different era?)

Mrs. Palin, the American people are still looking for a serious politician who will make things right, a politician who will not betray the American ideals and values and tradition. They will support your plan to rebuild the GOP if you are serious about restoring the trust of the American people. Will you help put a stop on rapacious usury that has been killing our precious students? Will you stop propagating perpetual wars that have driven the economy into chaos? Will you honor the American antecedents by saying no to torture?[21]

Mrs. Palin, you said that Obama has lied about transparency—and he has. But you are not helping either by lying to the American people about Iran and perpetual wars. These issues will certainly determine whether you are serious about rebuilding the GOP.

Mrs. Palin, you are a professing Christian and you ought to think seriously about the statement that America needs to bomb Iran without any justification. How is that compatible with Christ’s teachings, the moral law, and with what the West actually stands for?

You remember the Sermon on the Mount? “Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy…Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God” (Matthew 5:7, 9). Christ indeed disagreed with the Pharisees, but he never incited violence or even remotely suggested that He hated them. Even on the cross, He cried out, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34). Will you try to proclaim peace instead of perpetual wars?

Mrs. Palin, do not let the neoconservative regime turn you into something that you are not. Dr. Hajo Meyer, who survived Auschwitz, declared that “Zionism is today’s Nazism.”[22] Can you tell him why that it is not?

As previously said, I hope you still consider me as your brother. Thank you so much for reading this letter, my sister!


Yours Truly,

Jonas E. Alexis

    An excellent work! But as I was reading along I thought you have Sarah all wrong. She’s a brand, and has been re-branded a couple of times by her pac-paid PR consultants and speechwriters. I see her politics as AIP/Birch.

    Mary Glazier, spiritual leader, talked about Sarah joining her prayer group at age 24 (see last video on this page).

    Watch Sarah’s actions when she learned a protester was a teacher.

    While Sarah was mayor of that small town, that small town hired a city manager. When she went into the governor’s office, she took with her a co-governor, and only energy expert in that family. An obsessive man exposed by Troopergate. But the media ignored all that as well as the rumor.

    When I watched Sarah’s wild ride interview, and I knew. It should not be taboo.

    That game change movie rewrote history. That movie portrayed McCain as a true statesman, patriotic, and Sarah with short term memory problems. McCain’s naive and last minute VP pick excuse in that movie did not match Steve’s statement issued during the 2008 campaign that Sarah had been put through a six-month vetting process.

    I don’t know why she put an Israeli flag in her office, maybe for Kristol. Or why she has worn a cross or a star of David at whim after she quit as governor. But she was not the stateswoman McCain claimed when he put her on the national stage. So I was shocked she was invited to speak at the CPAC.

    Sorry to go off topic, I really thought your open letter was excellent. Thank you for allowing me to share.

    An excellent distillation of the lies the Republicans came to represent after being taken over by the NeoConservatives who pay homage to zionist goals of world domination and perpetual war for profit and power. Despite being written as an informal letter, this letter is a true scholarly work with deep and sensible insights into the lies, deceit and stupid mistakes the Republican party made which has transformed it into a what many view as an extension of the NWO Globalist mob, the world banksters, the moneychangers.

    Once again Jonas Alexis has shown himself to be a true scholar and superb writer, able to provide balance and fairness to a very difficult subject. Jonas, you are a breath of fresh air to this whole topic and your insights provide a positive and humane roadmap out of this seemingly “impossible to solve” nightmare of world zionist aggression which has found many mouthpieces and puppets within the American govt, and within the Republic and democratic parties, both of which are functioning at complete odds to the Constitution, Bill of Rights and what the American Founding Fathers stood for. It’s no wonder most average Americans feel both parties have betrayed them and feel abandoned by them.

    • Jonas E. Alexis  March 19, 2013 at 3:28 am

    “…Did you know that North Korea tested their (failed) missiles and Iran doesn’t have even one missile?”

    Did you perhaps mean to say that “Iran doesn’t have even one missile of intercontinental range?”

  4. Walking Turtle  March 17, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    Mrs. Palin,

    You are indeed a professing Christian. As such, political career or no, you certainly ought to think soberly at all times. So pray tell: Is there any such thing as even a “Mere Meaningless Little White Lie” in the world of Global Politics? I for one think not – again and again, every lie binds and harms the speaker, regardless of the outcome – intended or otherwise – for the targeted one.

    But isn’t it really more comfortable and remunerative to remain a Part of the Problem? But of course! There’s even this soft-spoken and honest ob/gyn MD from Texas who could recount a few key experiences on that note to you, drawn from his last Presidential run. Maybe you should pick up the phone and give him a jingle. He’s pretty easy to find. His experiences in surviving the ministrations of the terrorist criminals still operating under the protection of your party just might prove instructively valuable.

    But of COURSE the comfort level and its manipulation is an important component of the Criminal Method, Ma’am! It’s all a part of “hooking ’em in” and keeping ’em “compliant” on The Schtuff, all up and down the Line. But take it from one who knows from an entirely different life-path from yours: Their spectrum of resource is mighty narrow and shallow. That’s why street-thugs, mid-level kingmakers and Top Dogs all sound the same at the end of the day, no matter how rough- or nice-dressed, no matter the industry. Past the surface finish, there is no difference, Ma’am.

    Um, it’s Forbidden Truth, to be sure. That is because the terrorcrims within the GOP (same as everywhere else) reliably seek to enslave you, Ma’am, as well as all the Rest of Us. By forcing certain key topics of abiding national interest into the Unspeakable Realm of “National Security”, the entire conversation is reliably controlled in the racketeers’ intended direction. But you surely already know that much, from Dirty Karl Rove’s ironclad “Talking Points” tech.

    Ma’am it HAS to stop. Else Constitution-driven America shall be no more! (Got habeas corpus today?) Who does the currently-fashionable and incessantly-blared self-defense-free zone benefit, anyway if not the Sheriff-free ones hiding-out inside the DC Beltway of Impunity?

    Mrs. Palin, PLEASE stop harming yourself and everyone else! We already got plenty on our backs a-doin’ that gig, you know? Just like every other morally responsible National Leader, though, you NEED to ALWAYS do the Right Thing. The GOP sure has fallen into the Bad Company of the Wrong Hands from that point of view, now hasn’t it? So shall you not become a part of the Solution, Ma’am?

    Fact: Wolves and jackals come in all different shapes and colors. Don’t you think the ones in Business Suits, in their high-hand impunity, are far more of a clear and present danger to the American Liberty you aspire to champion than the hair-clad four-footeds living in your woods ever were?

    Fact: John 8:32 always works out, in the end. Applying that First Principle to political activity sure got Good Doc Paul trashed, slagged-off and shut out of the National Debate… He sure broke some long-neglected New Ground with his speech and actions. The Rest of Us sure would have elected him – had we been honestly allowed – but we were NOT and you surely know that. But don’t you think that the beat-down tactics that he and his staff were treated to in Florida that year (and the Rest of Us at the polls, in turn) just might indicate the location of the Cancer Within?

    Not that it’s any different with the Dems. BOTH parties are owned now by the same crowd! Why do you think Honest Doctor Paul went with Independent Party standing FIRST?

    Fact: Your lifetime membership in First Peoples’ Church of the Forbidden Truth awaits, Ma’am. It’s a Holy Order based on Natural Law and the Eternal Wisdom, Ma’am. Only commit in your own honest heart of hearts before Kind Holy Creator in the [remaining] privacy of your own home to actualizing the Book of Honest Truth that every human baby is born with on the Inside where it counts, and the Rest of Us shall notice right quick. After all, John 8:32 – and every corollary from every ancient culture and Wisdom Text surviving in this world – are Just All Right with the Rest of Us.

    Why not you, too, Ma’am? You ARE invited! Popping crims in broad daylight is even more fun than firing guns from helicopters! Mighty good company too. And that is all. 0{:-)o[

    • Jonas E. Alexis  March 18, 2013 at 4:11 am

      Good. There was so much I wanted to say but I ended up editing the letter.

    • Walking Turtle  March 18, 2013 at 10:10 pm

      Thank you for laying the initial groundwork, my friend! You set the easygoing pace, the gracious tone and the key topics just exactly right, to my own POV. BEAUTIFUL work!

      Fact is, there is a sub-legend of the City of Heaven (two Dimensions and sixteen galaxies Over Thattaway, fwiw) having to do with a certain statue of a beautiful woman, placed prominently in the Main Square. She is said to be weeping tears of blood day and night to this day, so the account runs, and has been doing so ever since the first deliberate lie was told by the Crown of Creation – Humankind. (By now, it is a regular river; major engineering upgrades had to be made to the property re the runoff quite some time back.)

      She’ll be able to stop all that, one day… Not up to her.

      Been wanting to have a leetle well-honed conversation with Mrs. Palin (and a few others who will NOT ever invite one such as myself to any of their soirees) for quite a while, now. Not too sure how to make certain Mrs. Palin is actually informed directly of this action Webside, but I reckon I won’t be the only one to bring the matter to her office staff’s attention for possible forwarding to her desk.

      I for one think she and Dr. Paul’s likely just flat kick ass on The Root Problem, should she ever indeed actually join the Church – and then should they ever team up. (Two ‘if’s in a row, so you judge the likelihood.)

      Even so, I for one (of course! 😉 ) think the notion deserves encouragement. The necessary medium-term beef-ups to White House and Executive Personnel security protocols and procedures would surely be well worth paying for, I think, IF made entirely airtight… Immediate full-spectrum in-depth training at Front Sight Institute for them both – and NO open-top limo tours allowed, sorry.

      Every cesspool needs a cleanout now and then. Infandous stench once the lid’s off, but there’s such real benefit to doing it! The “Health Department of Heaven” (Karmic Consequence Division) is sure to condemn the whole ranch if that job does not get done somehow and SOON. And that is all. 0{;-\o[

    GOP “growth” is contingent upon the party’s recognition of Israel’s deep subversion of our political process, the fact that Israel ‘owns’ the US Congress and effectively has controlled successive US Administrations. And if the GOP is looking for a ‘breakout’ moment, it should consider announcing a new investigation into 9-11.

  6. stephanaugust  March 17, 2013 at 11:46 am

    As for the Zionist wish to destroy Iran maybe it is connected to the hatred against the persians celebrated in Purim?

    • stephanaugust  March 17, 2013 at 11:48 am

      Not persians but Persians.

    • The Rahnameh  March 17, 2013 at 1:15 pm

      A lot of the cultural animus is amplified by the fairy tale holiday. No Queen Esther ever existed, nor an analogous Shah that would kill thousands of fellow Iranians as in their fairy tale. As a Biblical tale, it’s disgusting and irrelevant to cannon: it doesn’t mention God once.

    • Jonas E. Alexis  March 18, 2013 at 4:05 am

      I was just reading the news today and Iran does not even make it in the top five arms exporters. But it is still the biggest threat in the world. Brilliant logic.

    Since we are talking about Sarah Palin here, some time back I expressed my view of Palin via some cartoons (live action type) I produced, and posted on my youtube channel. If one is curious, you can view them here:

    Particularly, the two more significant ones are: (made with “free” xtranormal tools. better production possible with “paid” tools. simply did not invest such for personal reasons.)

    Palin Channels Bluto: The Final Cut
    Palin vs Lawyers with a sense of humor

    Some crude humor is injected. The topics are that serious. I felt I had to inject some levity, to “soften the blow” a bit.

    The bottom line with Palin, is that I think we may be venturing to expect her to swallow a pill, that she may not be able (or willing) to swallow. I did something similar with Rush Limbaugh back in 2004:

    Of course, this fell on deaf ears. (not including those assistants that cannot speak on the matter). I would later learn, to this very day, the truth about Alex Jones. I need to amend that piece, and point people to Gordon Duff, Jim Dean, Mike Harris, Stew Webb, Marilyn Barnwall, Lee Wanta, Tom Heneghan, Preston James, Kevin Barrett, et al.

    I learned recently from Stew Webb, that Ron Paul is not “controlled opposition.” However, he is only one man, and can say so much in public without endangering himself and his family. Same goes for Rand Paul. We must apply that same rule to Palin, if she is anything close to Ron and Rand Paul. She has displayed an Israeli flag in her office, while governor of Alaska. She has to first divorce herself from the State of Israel, in such manner as has Ron Paul (and to some extent his son), before we expect any further progress with Mrs. Sarah Palin…

    • OrdinarySerf  March 17, 2013 at 6:04 pm

      I never personally had Ron Paul down as controlled opposition klaatuaquinas, he would be one of the ones in the 5% I mention below (actually it is really 1-2%) but as you say, he is always in danger and can only come out with so much in public. Stew Webb is dynamite on the info front…

    • Jonas E. Alexis  March 18, 2013 at 4:08 am

      Correct. His son Rand moves back and forth about what he actually believes.

    • Jonas E. Alexis  March 19, 2013 at 3:26 am

      Hey Nasir,

      Thanks for the comment. I would like to know what particular points in the letter that made you think that I am “not able to think clearly” for myself. In order to refute a point, you’ve got to have a good and solid argument, and I’m willing to listen. Saying things like “is that a logical comment” without pointing out where the comment seems to be illogical will not do.
      With respect to your second point, please do not forget the definition of an open letter: “An open letter is a letter that is intended to be read by a wide audience, or a letter intended for an individual, but that is nonetheless widely distributed intentionally. Open letters usually take the form of a letter addressed to an individual but provided to the public through newspapers and other media, such as a letter to the editor or blog Especially common are critical open letters addressed to political leaders. Letters patent are another form of open letter in which a legal document is both mailed to a person by the government, and publicized so that all are made aware of it. Open letters can also be addressed directly to a group rather than any individual.”
      So, are you saying that political writers are not “intellectually honest” by writing open letters to the person directly? Are you saying that writers from the eighteenth and all the way to the twenty-first centuries are not “intellectually honest”?

      Hey Nassir,

      Thanks for the comment again. I was using Wikipedia just to show that the definition of an open letter is hardly unquestionable. Check any other source on this issue.
      Second, do you really think that the point I have raised in the letter is completely foreign to Palin? Is she really leaving in a mirage? Do you really think that no one has ever pointed this out to her? For example, a few weeks ago I took the pain to write to talk show host and Orthodox Jew Ben Shapiro saying that I am taking his work seriously. I even sent him a version of my critique. I am still waiting for a response. Suppose that he responds in two years. Would you advise that I wait that long before I make my critique public?
      There is a scholar at Stanford University I used to highly esteem and admire (I will point his name out in a future article). I wrote to him and said that I like his work, to which he responded, “Thank you.” Then I began to review some of his statements on Iran. He keeps propounding that Iran is the biggest terrorist organization in the world in his books without a shred of evidence, not even one single footnote. I even asked him to provide the evidence. It’s been more than two years and I am still waiting for his answer. I have learned over the years that people of Palin’s statue would not give a rip about a guy like me. You even alluded to this fact: “Does she even know if you exist?”
      I am willing to engage with the people whose writings and positions I critique in any of the article. The simple fact is that you simply cannot get them to engage in a serious dialogue. And I had interactions with one professor from Cambridge, one from Emory, and one guy from the Skeptic Society about the thesis of the Holocaust establishment. One of those folks even threatened me if I dare publish the interactions!
      It is really interesting to accuse someone of doing “a naked hit-job” without real substantial evidence. You also move on to say that I use “equivocation” and I “ appeal to tradition, and genetic fallacies.” And I “basically say, ‘like father like son!”? I understand very well that this is your opinion and I genuinely respect it. You have every right to say it, but you cease to be a person of reason if you cannot provide evidence for the statement. You are making decent lawyers look very bad. Thanks again for the comment!

      Personally, I would have just sent an email copy to Mrs P there Jonas….that would negate any debate on the issue.

    Palin suffers from the standard politician’s dilemma….even if she is intelligent and mature enough as a representative of the people, she cannot speak the truth because 95% plus of all the politicians in the world today are controlled by the corporatocracy their lack of backbone and leadership has helped create – and when that one huge leader comes along to take the people with them to a brighter, more caring world, they will likely be assassinated. It needs a critical mass tipping point in awareness; we are getting there but as I have stated before, it is a race against time to wake the masses up.
