Sarah Palin Slams One of the Left’s Liberal Idols

Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin exposed another major incident of hypocrisy in the liberal media. In a recent Facebook post, she defended the beleaguered Duggar family and skewered the, “intolerant left’s destructive personal intrusions and narrow-mindedness applied to their chosen targets.”

As evidence, Gov. Palin took aim at the way the liberal media reacted to HBO series Girls star, Lena Dunham’s revelation that she had used, “anything a sexual predator might” to lure her younger sister Grace into performing sexual acts. Dunham detailed her “sexual experiments” in her bestselling memoir, Not That Kind of Girl.

In contrast to how the entire Duggar family has been treated, Dunham received no backlash from the media. In fact, when some spoke up to condemn her behavior, those on the left rushed to justify and dismiss her acts.

While Palin made it clear that she would not defend then 14-year-old Josh Duggar’s apparent misconduct, she pointed to how the media’s feeding frenzy has exposed and once again victimized the innocent Duggar sisters, whose rights to privacy as minor victims has been completely disregarded as the media gleefully destroys an entire family’s reputation.

Palin wrote:

“I’m not defending the Duggar boy’s obvious wrongdoing over a decade ago. The main victim in any story like this isn’t the perpetrator, it’s the innocent ones so harmfully affected. I’m not an apologist for any sexual predator, but I’m sickened that the media gives their chosen ones a pass for any behavior as long as they share their leftwing politics. Case in point, they suggest Lena Dunham’s sexual assault on her sibling is cute, and she’s rewarded for it with fame and fortune. Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family.”

      1. I meant that we have much bigger problems that the are throwing at us, RIGHT NOW! The UN is meeting in Mexico City in a couple months to devise a plan to sidestep the constitution, and take away our right to bear arms. The tactic is to throw garbage at us, while we concentrate on that, they are trying to attack our unalienable rights.

        1. Keep on your reps A$$’S about it!!! don’t let them take a breath without receiving a note letting them know if they support this they WILL lose their job!

          1. You better believe it! I am very proactive in legislation with my rep and senator. This too, shall come to pass.

    1. Dan after the way Christians are fair targets to some Americans, I don’t think this will just MOVE ON anymore than America will just suddenly stop going after this family. You think some Americans will just get over it and forget it, you know better than that, they will just keep chewing on their cud like cows do or like chewing their chewing tobacco like some men do until they chew so much it becomes a cancer

      1. I know what you mean. Discrimination against Christians is ok, but we must accept the “religion of peace” Muslims. They should not be protected under the first amendment, they are a political regime, not a religion. There is only one law of this land, and it is our constitution. Sharia has no place in this place!

          1. Yes, in a free country you can demonstrate your idiocy anywhere, for all to see.

          2. I’m sure if It had the power it wouldn’t see things the way you and I do and other Liberty loving people.

        1. Come on! She knows nothing about foreign policy. She does not read newspapers. She is inarticulate……
          ”I didn’t really had a good answer, as so often — is me.”

          1. Obviously obama knows nothing about foreign policy, his military experts told him what would happen if he pulled the troops out of Iraq. How’s Libya working out? Iran is eating his lunch, ISIS is taking over Syria and Iraq.

          2. pray tell, why in hell are we responsible for Iraq, because Bush, acted like a fucking BULLY and dragged their President out of his Country and hung him on National TV?? and sp is a fucking moron, every thing that comes out of her mouth shows how ignorant she really is, and you Republicans can all kiss our Democratic ASS.

          3. Yet ANOTHER idiotic troll loving to display her ignorance…. I can’t help but laugh at folks that drank too much of the Obummer Kool-Aid and loves to flaunt their loss of reality.

          4. It was the UN that first brought up the WMD issue, not Bush. The Iraqis were blocking the UN inspectors from certain areas. Why should we care about Iraq? ISIS is taking over, the are the baddest terrorists around and they will have oil reserves to fund their terrorism just like Iran. ISIS is also taking over Syria, their goal is to take out Israel and the US. How’s Libya working out? Thank you Hillary and obama!!
            I don’t kiss ass, I only kick it. No democrat limp wrist scare me, sweetheart!

          5. I’ll bet 5 bucks to a plugged nickel you are a product of a NEA run school. Buy the way, when the last time some decent, hard working guy, Democrat OR Republican, offered to take you and introduce you to his Mother? I won’t hold my breath.

          6. Man oh man,you really have proven yourself to be a “lady” NOT!!!!! It wouldn’t be hard to ‘kiss your Democratic ass” as you have proven beyond a shadow of doubt that you are ALL ASS.

          7. I see you know nothing about history. It was the Iraqis that tried and hung Sadaam, not Bush. You must be a product of the current public school system.

          8. Sure, They did that all by themselves just as they are now defending their country all by themselves.

          9. Did you even watch the video where an Iraqi people were celebrating the hanging of Saddam Hussein?
            Unfortunately I agree Saddam controlled his people and country much better than Bush and way better than “REDLINE” International policy pro Obama.

          10. Your lack of a vocabulary is proof that you are a product of Government Schooling and one of low character! just saying!!!

          11. Carolyn, please don’t lower your level to theirs. They use that language because it is the only way they know to disagree. they do not know how to argue facts.

          12. FACTS ??!!
            Your Nuts !!
            Still trying to manufacture “inferiority complex” reparations for the black man.

          13. Carolyn, and you think that things are better now??? Both dies of the isle are corrupt, or can you not see that?? This “left right” paradigm is all a big cover so the globalists can succeed in their world take over. ALL of the jerks in congress and the POTUS need to be dragged out into the street and made to go home and then tried for treason against the U.S.A. If you don’t see the direction of this country is oblivion then we are indeed screwed.

          14. since you liberturd demorats are TOTAL ASSES. I guess if we choose to kiss any part of your being could be the the correct spot!!! Stop drinking the kool aide given by the 1/2 white man in the black house and his boy/wife, the racist pig!

          15. Wow! What a mouth!
            Considered running for the Democrat Party ??
            Bill Clinton might even get a boner !!

          16. But Obama has planned to turn the Middle East and Africa and eventually more over to the Muslim terrorists. He has appointed Muslim Brotherhood to important positions in all our security areas. He has fired 100s of generals and admirals and officers who are loyal to the Constitution.
            He is constantly destroying the Constitution.
            No Obama knows exactly what he is doing.
            Pray for the USA and the world.

          17. Obviously George Bush knew nothing about foreign policy or we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in now. Why does the US think that every country wants our type of government? We have enough problems here at home without meddling in other countries business. He even attacked the wrong country to start all of the problems we face today. If these people want freedom and democracy, let them get it the way we did.

          18. Iraq was a mistake. The reason we invaded was because Hussein wasn’t cooperating with the UN inspectors, had nothing to do with 911 despite the false narrative pushed by the democrats. Obama doesn’t listen to his military, he thinks that he’s the smartest man in the room, and he is when he’s sitting on a toilet. That’s correct, I agree, no more nation building. ISIS is taking over the Middle East and their goal is the destruction of the US and Israel. We already have one terrorist nation that funds terrorism and that’s Iran. If ISIS takes over Iraq and Syria that will be three terrorist nations that will sponsor terrorism, and they’ll have billions in oil revenues to fund it. When Germany started beating the war drums the US ignored it because it was just a little country on the other side of the ocean, and look what happened.

          19. Then why are the Arab nations fighting against ISIS? As for the oil revenues, we get less and less oil from the Middle East today than we ever did. This is the perfect reason to dump filthy energy and move to renewables.

          20. The Saudis are fighting. When you have something waiting in the wings that’s more efficient and cheaper than fossil fuels. I’ll be first in line.

          21. Perhaps you should do some research into renewable energy. There are several places in this country and abroad who have gone to renewables. The results have been amazing with less cist and much less pollution. What good is cheap energy if one can’t breathe the air?

          22. This isn’t China, you can breathe just fine. Solar, no sun no energy and it’s expensive. Windmills, no wind no energy and the kill raptures. Those things actually drive up energy costs. So far nothing more efficient or cheap as fossil fuels, the oceans aren’r rising, there isn’t more intense storms, hurricanes or tornados. Don’t panic, man can’t control the climate and it’s conceited to think he can. Climate change has happened since the beginning of time before man was on Earth. The #1 concern of the citizens is jobs and the economy. Businesses have enough ridiculous regulations which is choking the economy.

          23. You just keep believing what you want, but there is plenty of proof showing the exact opposite. Solar is getting less expensive all the time, there are now windmills be tested that have no blades so that the birds will be safe. The people living in the Texas panhandle where fracking is booming woukd tend to disagree with you about how wonderful fossil fuels are. Yes the climate does change, but the changes we have seen lately have been truly devastating. You say businesses have enough regulations so I guess your solution is to give carte blanche to them to allow them the freedom to load up our foods with crap so they can make things cheaper and thus reap bigger profits. You want less restrictions perhaps we should be more like China’s manufacturing. No thank you! No this isn’t China, but it will become more like it if we don’t start to do something. But then we would be taking a lesson from another country and we know how much some Americans hate that.

          24. What devastating changes? There’s been fewer hurricanes and tornados, not more. Overregulation is killing the economy, 1200 new ones this year alone. The founder of Home Depot said that with all the regulations he couldn’t have started his business today. The climate has changed since the beginning of time and it’s really conceited to think that man can control it. Here’s a couple of ideas for you guys to try, a global thermostat? Adjust the Earth’s orbit around the Sun?

          25. You are truly in the minority when it comes to climate change. Are you a scientist? Man can control the climate by being prudent at what it puts into the atmosphere. Your ideas are just palin stupid. Regulation is necessary to a degree. I think the biggest problem is that we have regulations and instead of stopping to evaluate which are good and which aren’t necessary isn’t being done. Instead we just keep adding more.

          26. I’m not in the minority, it’s the theory of climate change and there’s many climatologists that aren’t government funded who doesn’t follow Gores theories, one of them is Dr. Richard Lindzen of MIT. I agree that we should go through the regulations and evaluated which ones are bad.

          27. Unfortuneately most of the scientists who have said that climate change is a hoax are being funded by energy companies and people who have special interests in not limiting toxic chemicals being put into out atmosphere. Many countries have now admitted that there is a major problem and our coming up with plans to help stop the damage already done to the earth. They all can’t be wrong.

          28. And the scientists who say it’s real are being funded by the government calling for more regulation, higher costs to consumers and higher taxes.

          29. The following report will prove that you are incorrect about the government funding scientists to make claims about climate change and global warming.

            Accusations that climate science is money-driven reveal ignorance of how science is done

            Some bogus arguments take on a life of their own.

            by John Timmer – May 24, 2012 4:58pm EDT
            One of the unfortunate memes that has made repeated appearances in the climate debate is that money isn’t just influencing the public debate about science, but it’s also influencing the science itself. The government, the argument goes, is paying scientists specifically to demonstrate that carbon dioxide is the major culprit in recent climate change, and the money available to do so is exploding.

            Although the argument displays a profound misunderstanding of how science and science funding work, it’s just not going away. Just this week, one of the sites where people congregate to criticize mainstream climate science once again repeated it, replete with the graph below. That graph originated in a 2009 report from a think tank called the Science & Public Policy Institute (notable for using the serially confused Christopher Monckton as a policy advisor).

            The report, called “Climate Money: The climate industry: $79 billion so far—trillions to come” (PDF) and prepared by Australian journalist Joanne Nova for the Science & Public Policy Institute, claims to show how money has distorted climate science. There are several aspects to this argument, but we’ll start with the money itself.

            Who’s got the money?

            Many discussions have focused on the fact that businesses with a large carbon output (like fossil fuels extractors) have funded PR and lobbying efforts that, in part, have attempted to undercut the scientific case for human-driven climate change. It notes that there is now significant money being made by companies that build carbon-neutral energy sources and energy efficient technology, some coming from tax incentives and subsidies. In addition, carbon-trading markets are predicted to grow rapidly over the coming decades. Combined, the report asserts, this money provides an incentive to keep the spotlight focused on carbon.

            In short, some of the green industries are now in the same position as their fossil fuel counterparts, in that they have an incentive to shape policy and the public support for it. There’s a definite element of truth to this, although there are clearly reasons other than climate change—ocean acidification, energy security, extending the lifetime of finite resources—for promoting efficiency and green energy.

            This displays an almost incomprehensible misunderstanding of how science research works

            But the key thing here is that, at best, these companies can influence things like public perception and policy responses. They don’t influence the underlying science because almost none of them are paying any scientists to gather data. So, although a focus on the income of various companies might tell us something about public opinion, it doesn’t really say much about the science.

            The false assertion that money is distorting the science comes, in part, from a spectacular misreading of the following graph.

            The graph ostensibly shows how the US has gone from essentially funding nothing in the way of climate research to spending over $7 billion a year. But the vast majority of that money is in the form of “Climate Technology,” and a careful reading of the report indicates that this goes to things like wind and solar power, biofuel production, and things of that nature. None of that money goes to the researchers who are actually generating the results that point to anthropogenic warming, so it can’t possibly provide an incentive to them.

            The money that is actually going to climate science is on the bottom of the graph, in purple. And, as that shows, funding has been essentially flat since the early 1990s. (Funding has gone up slightly in recent years, but is still in the neighborhood of $2 billion annually.) A lot of that money doesn’t actually go to scientists, either, as it pays to support everything from some of NASA’s Earth-monitoring satellites to land and ocean temperature monitoring.

            The other issue with this graph is that it gives the false impression that funding shot up from nowhere around 1990. The truth of the matter is that the US has been funding climate science for decades. It’s why we have things like a record of CO2 levels that goes back to the 1950s, temperature records that span over a century, and a detailed history of periods like the ice ages. People didn’t just suddenly start studying this stuff in 1990—and much of the work from before that date was funded by the government. What changed was the accounting. There are over a dozen different branches of the government that fund some sort of science, but it wasn’t until 1990 that the government formed the Climate Change Science Program, which started aggregating the expenditures across agencies.

            There has never been any sudden boom in government funding for climate research that is luring people onto the research track, much less inducing them to support the consensus view. If anything, many years of flat funding would provide an incentive for people to look to getting out of the field. The graph, held up as evidence that climate scientists are being led around by money, actually shows the exact opposite.

            Where’s that money going?

            But maybe that money is somehow being directed in a biased manner, distributed in a way that ensures the current consensus is supported. “Where is the Department of Solar Influence or the Institute of Natural Climate Change?” Nova asks, elsewhere claiming, “Thousands of scientists have been funded to find a connection between human carbon emissions and the climate. Hardly any have been funded to find the opposite.”

            This displays an almost incomprehensible misunderstanding of how science research works. There are institutes that are dedicated to studying the Sun—the Naval Research Laboratory has one, as does NASA. But those institutes are focused on learning about what the Sun actually does, not squeezing what we learn into some preconceived agenda. For decades, solar activity has been trending downwards, even as temperatures have continued to rise. It’s not that the researchers are being induced or compelled to some sort of biased interpretation of the data. Reality just happens to have a bias.

            The same thing works in other areas as well. A number of countries have spent large sums of research dollars to put Earth-monitoring satellites in orbit, not with the intent of finding anything in particular, but because monitoring the Earth can tell us important things. This hardware has imaged the Greenland ice sheet—again, not because of some sort of bias, but because the sheet is very big and very significant. Most of these studies have suggested that ice loss is accelerating, but a recent one concluded, “sea level rise from Greenland may fall well below proposed upper bounds.”

            The researchers weren’t from some sort of “Institute to discover a stable sea level.” They were from departments focused on polar research and Earth sciences. What Nova doesn’t seem to get is that the people who study the planet actually pay attention to what the planet tells them, not to what their institute may be titled.

            (Incidentally, this paper is also a clear indication that research that indicates things aren’t as bad as they could be not only gets published, but makes it into very prestigious journals.)

            Like many other self-proclaimed skeptics, Nova also has the bizarre idea that research normally proceeds by “auditing” existing studies. “Auditing AGW research,” she writes “is so underfunded that for the most part it is left to unpaid bloggers who collect donations from concerned citizens online.” But nobody audits the JPL to see if it’s handling the Cassini probe properly; geneticists aren’t being asked to open their books so that other scientists can see if they’re fudging the numbers.

            Science simply doesn’t proceed through audits. The Greenland paper linked above provides a much more typical picture of how things work. The researchers behind it didn’t simply reanalyze what others had done; they got new (and, in many ways, better) data that addressed the same issue and provided a more comprehensive picture of what was going on at the ice sheet’s glaciers.

            In short, you generally don’t make an impression on science by auditing past data; you do it by coming up with better data.

            It’s pretty strange that people find in the graph above (which shows research stuck in neutral for decades) evidence of a flood of money into climate science that distorts its conclusions. But it’s unfortunately typical that an argument focused on climate science leaves the facts behind from the start.

            The graph wouldn’t transfer, but it can be seen at arstechnica.com

          30. Not buying it. Feeling warm? Move to the most beautiful state in the nation, NH. Summer time we hardly use the central. Leave the windows open all night, close them during the day. The cost of regulations is passed onto the consumer. The left is great at destroying the economy.

          31. Don’t care if you buy it or not, but those are the facts. I guess it’s true……….you can’t fix stupid!

          32. I saw a video of Al Gore giving a lecture, when Gore asked if there were any questions, a Ph.d climatologist said that he could refute every single issue in the Inconvenient movie. Gore wouldn’t debate. You buy a scam and call me stupid?
            (eye roll)

          33. Congratulations, you saw a video! One climatologist doesn’t make up for all of the research that has been and is being done. As I said before……you can’t fix stupid!

          34. Sure, raise my taxes and save the planet!! Have you thought about the global thermostat thingy?

          35. Today, Pope Francis underscored our moral obligation to address climate change and its impacts on communities around the globe.

            In his encyclical message from the Vatican, the pope made a historic call for action to protect future generations from the dangers of further climate chaos.

            By using one of the highest levels of his authority — the encyclical — the pope made climate action a moral priority for his faith community.

            I believe the pope’s message applies to all of us, regardless of our faith.

            We are already paying a high price for rising seas, expanding deserts, blistering heat, withering drought, raging floods, storms and other hallmarks of climate change.

            And all too often it is the most vulnerable among us — infants and children, expectant mothers, the poor, the elderly and the infirm — that are hurt the worst from the consequences of climate change.

            In his encyclical, Pope Francis reminds us: “The climate is a common good, belonging to all and meant for all… Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last 200 years.”

            On that point, there can be no doubt. Our world is telling us every way it knows how that it’s time to cut the dangerous carbon pollution that’s driving climate change.

            But for our convictions to have meaning and purpose, they must shape the way we live and drive progress. That’s what the pope reminds us this week.

            The pope has put before us one of the most profound questions of our time: will we embrace our moral obligation to be responsible stewards of the world?

            In the coming weeks, months and years ahead, our actions will determine whether our children inherit a world that’s redeemed by our commitment to get this right or condemned by our failure to act.

          36. The pope should shut his pie hole and address child abuse in the Catholic church. The seas aren’t rising, the shoreline is eroding. When all the cottages at Plum Island Mass. were wiped out by a big storm everyone pointed to a rising sea level. Plum Island cottages are built on dunes, could that be why they were wiped out? You didn’t explain how more regulations and higher taxes will “save the planet.” China and India are building a coal fired plant a week. Do you think that they’re going to stop? Man cannot control the weather and it’s conceited to think that they can. I’m going to be here until 8 o’clock tonight. Our correspondence is over.

          37. So now you are a climate scientist! OMG how many different hats do you wear?

            t’s my belief that history is going to look back upon those who denied the realities of human-made climate change much in the same way we do people who once thought that Earth was flat. The thing is, climate change deniers are actually worse because we have the technology that gives near unlimited access to scientific facts, whereas centuries ago obtaining information was much more difficult. In today’s world, you have to be willfully ignorant to deny the scientifically supported reality that humans are accelerating climate change. However, because the Republican party is basically nothing more than a puppet for big oil, we’ve had to have this “debate” among the vast majority of the world’s scientists and people who take in large sums of money from the world’s biggest oil producers. I’ve often compared it to just a few decades ago when big tobacco spent massive amounts of money trying to perpetuate the absurd believe that smoking wasn’t hazardous to anyone’s health. Hell, once upon a time there were ads for doctor recommended cigarettes. Can you believe that? To think, with all that we know now, there was actually a time where there was a “debate” over whether or not smoking was dangerous. Well, during a recent interview with CNN, Bill Nye used the tobacco industry as an example to showcase just how absolutely ignorant these people are who deny humans are accelerating climate change: I just want to remind voters that suppose you had somebody running for congressional office in your district who insisted there was no connection between cigarette smoking and cancer. Would you vote for that person? You might, but if this person were adamant, ‘No, the scientists who studied cigarette smoking, they don’t know what…,’ if they were adamant, would you vote for them? And so, in the same way the connection between climate change and human activity is at least as strong as cigarettes and cancer. And so, I just want everybody to keep this in mind: that it’s very reasonable that the floods in Texas, the strengthening storms, especially, the president was in Florida, these things are a result of human activity making things worse. It’s very bad. I get this that people died in Texas, and I am reminding you what else. This is a very expensive business. When you flood the fourth largest city in the United States, somebody is going to pay for it, and it’s you and me. And so, the sooner we get to work on climate change, the better. The truth is, there was a time in this country when politicians did blindly – and vigorously – defend big tobacco against the scientific claims that smoking was dangerous. Do you know why? Because they were being paid off by big tobacco the same way big oil is paying off politicians today. The difference being, smoking is without a doubt bad, but ultimately it mostly only impacts those who choose to smoke, whereas denying climate change puts the lives of everyone living on this planet in danger. As long as there are enough people buying into the bullshit that big oil is paying politicians to say, that puts us all at risk. Sadly, even when evidence of climate change is happening right in front of our eyes, such as the recent historic floods in Texas (on the heels of a historic drought no less), it won’t make a difference. Because as the saying goes… you can’t fix stupid.

            Even Bill Nye says the same thing as I did.

          38. Bill Nye said that by 2012 the earth would be so overpopulated that it would be the end of humanity. Gore said that by 2015 the storms would intensify and the polar caps would be melted. Now there’s fewer intense storms and a record amount of ice in the Antarctic. Is Gore a scientist? Is the pope a scientist? The sun controls earth’s temperature, how does on control the sun? Enjoy the weather and you stop being stuck on stupid, son.

          39. You truly are steeped in right wing bullshit. Storms have intensified greatly, polar ice caps are melting at record rates; especially in the Arctic, which you failed to mention, as a matter of fact; yes, the Pope is a scientist. You say the sun controls the earth’s temperature, but what is between the earth and the sun. That’s where the problem lies and what we are talking about. You are the one stuck on stupid because you are so brain washed by the right who wants to deny all of this just for the benefit of big energy corporations who stuff their (politicians) pockets with cash (a few Democrats as well).

          40. Sparky, there’s a record amount of ice at the South Pole, more than in recorded history. The Polar Bears are not dying, they’re thriving and reproducing and there’s a record amount of bears, so many that they will have to be culled (sniffle sniffle)
            Storms have not intensified, and we’ve had fewer tornados. who tells you this crap?
            The founder of the weather channel also calls it a scam and the ones who are pushing it are the ones that are going to be stuffing their pockets.
            A few years ago they were talking about a global freeze. I know this for a fact, it was in the movie the Day After Tomorrow. It’s too late, we’re all going to die!! Raise my taxes and SAVE ME……HELP

          41. First of all my name is not Sparky. Yes there is a record amount of ice at the South Pole, but it has very different conditions from the North Pole. Polar Bears do not live at the South Pole.

            Well you just summed it up for me that you get your info from some very bizarre places. Why have you not mentioned the North Pole where most of ther ptoblem is? Would it show proof that you don’t know what you’re talking about? I believe that the people in Texas and the midwest who have lost homes, property, and lives would beg to differ with you. And seriously you’re going to base anything on a Hollywood movie. Where do you get this stuff? You really need to do some research before you make false statements.

            Arctic vs. Antarctic

            Because the Arctic and Antarctic are cold, dark, and remote, we often think these two places are nearly the same. However, they are quite different. One notable difference is that polar bears live only in the Arctic, and penguins live only in the Antarctic. But what about the differences in sea ice between the two regions?

            According to scientific measurements, both the thickness and extent of summer sea ice in the Arctic have shown a dramatic decline over the past thirty years. This is consisistent with observations of a warming Arctic. This trend is a major sign of climate change in the polar regions and may be an indicator of the effects of global warming. (See Trends in the Environment section).

            For more information on current sea ice conditions see the Arctic Sea Ice News & Analysis Web page. To read NSIDC press releases on recent Arctic sea ice minima, see the Arctic Sea Ice Press Announcements Archive on the Arctic Sea Ice News & Analysis Web page.

            Twelve scientists from Arctic countries have issued what amounts to a wake-up call about the world’s polar bear population. If the record disappearance of the Arctic summer ice last year continues, the feeding platform of polar bears will vanish. We may have to start feeding them ourselves – if only to draw them away from human settlements – relocate them, or cull starving bears to ensure more viable populations. As it is, only one of 19 polar bear subpopulations is increasing. So much of the way we think about the disappearing Arctic ice is stuck in the 19th century. The eight nation Arctic Council cannot even agree on a system of corporate liability for oil spills, let alone declare the Arctic to be off-limits for drilling. Is the Arctic one of the last areas of wilderness in the world which, along with its bears, should be protected, or is its rapid disappearance too good an opportunity to be missed? We had better soon decide which of the two we want.

          42. Are you one of those “My farts don’t stink kind of people” ?
            Promoting the policies of a bankrupt Solyndra ?!?
            I’ve got three windmills at a school 20 miles from me.
            2 in disrepair and a school board that never hears the end of it.

          43. Do you bother to do any research into the issues at hand, or are you one of those people who sits on their fat a$$ and just continues to spew forth every little lie that you get from the right wing media?

          44. Navy educated in nuclear power technology, and disgusted with the administration as most of the (neutered) armed services are.

          45. Try 5 tours of duty on a sub. It’ll redefine what you consider lazy.
            I research as much as anybody, both liberal or conservative and like you provide only as much proof the internet will allow.
            I can oppose most any viewpoint established by a well paid consensus with an number of scientists opposed to their ideas.
            I’ve debated college professors, with the very books they required us to purchase. I have a Bachelors in business even though I feel I could have done better in nuclear energy production.
            I watch as many news sources as I can. (both pro and con to my political opinion) and read just as many if not more national and local papers.
            I stay pretty informed.

          46. Current Renewables = MM Climate Change= Ponzi Scheme = Crony Capitalism= Stealing from the citizens = a current losing proposition all the way around.

            I’m all for rerenewable resources…as long as the greedy crony hypocrites and thieves in government and their crony partners keep their mitts out of the research and development and let the free market entrepreneurs build it for the right reasons. Oh, and figure out how to stop the killing of birds and other wildlife…unlike the not so brilliant subsidized alternative energy experiments that has been taking place over the last 30+ years.

          47. Seems you forgot that we created the terrorist and are still training and supporting the terrorist and that has been documented and proven but it`s like no one notices that and just keeps passing the blame to other countries.Iran is fighting ISIS while we are supplying them with weapons and Syria is fighting ISIS while we are training them under the worn out name of Syrian Rebels who don`t even exist anymore.Israel is supporting the terrorist by treating their wounded and sending them back to fight while all the terrorist are supposedly against and want to destroy Israel.They just haven`t fired a shot at Israel since the wars have begun.Doesn`t that seem a little weird to anyone else?Saudi Arabia and Turkey supports the terrorist and I haven`t seen anyone saying much about that.We sold the Saudi all of those planes not long ago and do you think that was a coincidence sense they attacked Yemen the poorest country in the M.E and are bombing it back to the stone age.I look at Afganistan ,Libya,Iraq,Yemen,Syria and all the genocide our country has backed on the African continent and I wonder just who are the terrorist.

          48. “…enough problems here at home without meddling in other countries…”
            So now, I am to suppose, that we go along with our pretender/IOO inviting other countries to screw our country, or what he leaves for them to proceed with.

          49. If you listen to or read anything by anyone who is considered an expert on Middle East culture and government, they all have said that we went into a war without understanding the country(s). If you want to blame, you have to go back to the beginning of this mess and sort out all of the details. I have done extensive research on this subject and it can get rather complicated. It is truly very interesting however to realize just how many people were involved and what actions were taken dating back to the at least the 80’s and maybe even before.

          50. “…extensive research…rather complicated…actions taken… at least the 80’s and maybe [MAYBE?] even before.”
            You make good points with inclusion of a point against your self. Research, yes perhaps, but – extensive? That is an easy one. Along a long trail we see – I note, an easy one – not MAYBE, on going for long. Obvious – after JFK was out of the way LBJ jumped – I emphasize JUMPED – into RVN somewhat before the 80’s.
            Not Middle East, same problem.

          51. It started with Churchill when he made Iraq out of three tribal areas on the advice of one of his dip shit mistresses. That part of the world has been a mess ever since. We also have never had an energy policy that made any sense either….enter ARAMCO, the formation of Israel, The Mufti’s influence with Hitler, the CIA with the Shah, the set up of the Saud family….and its Bush’s fault?

          52. It’s called learning from the past. He didn’t do a very good job of that. Plus the fact that a lot of this was don for Cheyney who I consider far worse than Bush. He wanted a war to furhter the profits of Halibuton.

          53. kris,
            Cheney wanted a war so Halliburton (not Halibuton) wanted to further (not furhter) their profits? How do you know, putz?

          54. Bernie, you missed don which should have been done. Do some research into Cheyney, Halliburton and the zmiddle East and you will find the answers to your question. It’s all there and nicely documented. I don’t watch MSNBC or standard news because they are too biased one way or another. However you just couldn’t not show your true right wing ignorance by your little cutesy comment at the end of your second sentence. So Mature!

          55. kris,
            What “research” and “documents” do you go by, putz? (cute enough?)
            Sad………

          56. Instead of saying nothing, which you are so good at doing, get off your lazy a$$ and look it up. Do your mind, brain, and intellect a favor.

          57. Awwww Kris,
            1. Does that mean you were just blabbering some left-wing crap about Halliburton?
            2. Does that mean you are ashamed of where you got your “info”?
            3. Does that mean you’re not going to try and enlighten me?
            Sad………
            By the way, you can spell out “ass” on these posts., Ass!!
            One more thing….I would like to take this opportunity to thank today’s far left, radical, dumb DEMOCRAT party and people like you for making it easier and easier for this once proud South Side Chicago, minority voting DEMOCRAT (me) for now being a CONSERVATIVE voter. Thank you………..

          58. IF we had an energy policy that made any sense starting 50 plus years ago none of this would have been needed, or we would have had the leverage over the Middle East oil folks to keep them in line as well as the Europeans who would like to see us fall as an economic power. Besides, Bush I should have put Saddam out of his misery the first time but obeyed the UN rules and then we hung the Kurds out to dry which guarenteed a sequal. Cheney’s legend lives on beyond his power and influence because he does not say much [maybe its because he has little to say!] Most corporations should be as well managed and capable as Haliburton and we would not have had a housing bubble.

          59. After reading the first sentence from your rant I knew you were an … Idiot. I was trying to be polite.

          60. So the liberals solution would be allow everything to fail into total chaos with Islamic terrorists over running the entire Middle East, while at the same time allowing chaos such as the Boston bombings, Ferguson, Baltimore, cop shootings, etc to happen here in the U.S.
            Good Job Democrats !!

          61. Are you an expert in Middle East affairs? It is a very complicated part of the world. Our troubles started there long, long before Obama was President. It really goes back to the late 50’s and early 60’s. Much or I should say most of the problems we have had over there were due to greed for oil and its profits. You really can’t compare the Middle East problems with Ferguson and Baltimore. These problems were caused by a few crazed hateful policemen who in the end have gotten what they deserved. You say good job Democrats, but what have the Republicans done except say no to everything that might help, come up with no ideas of their own, and criticize so many things that are so unimportant.

          62. So you condone allowing an administration to drop the ball, allowing ISIS terrorists to take cities once controlled by the allies.
            You can account all problems to when Israel was set up as a state, infuriating the Palestinians but that still won’t forgive Obama allowing all that was accomplished in Iraq and Afghanistan to be lost.
            Obama essentially pulled all military support allowing ISIS to regain power.
            He allows undocumented people, condoning terrorism on AMERICAN soil.
            Obama and John Kerry then draw their pansy ass CRAYOLA CRAYON “REDLINES” with no stomach to back anything they say or promote. COWARDS !!!
            The same as Baltimore Mayor Rawlings throwing in the towel allowing black youth to destroy a portion of the city. COWARD !!
            The same as Clinton allowing the first attempt on the Trade Towers and the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole with essentially no answer to deflate efforts of terrorists that will eventually tear the U.S. apart. COWARD given way too much credit by those easily amused !!
            I served in the U.S. Navy under Presidents Reagan, Bush Sr. and Clinton.
            I retired Petty Officer first class (E-6)
            I undestand patriotic sense of duty and loyalty to your country.
            Our current LIBERALS in charge DON’T !!

          63. What does this have to do with the Duggars and Sarah Palin? That is the topic of this item. I don’t care who you served under or anything else because it has nothing to do with this. The problems with the Middle East go back to the late 50’s and early 60’s. We are to blame for most of what is happening over there today. There is just too much proof to think otherwise. I have done extensive research on the ME and the amount of info is mind boggling. It’s like reading a spy thriller with all the twists and turns and assemblage of characters. However one thing remains a constant throughout the history. It was all done for oil and for those who would gain the most from the profits it created.

          64. “Extensive research” pertaining to the article would indicate the hypocrisy of the Duggar incident while not admitting to the Dunham Incident (Sarah’s point).
            I think they (Duggar and Dunham) were both old enough to know better than harming children, but because liberals attempt covering everything they do while blaming conservatives for the same crimes is just too funny.

          65. You mean the George Bush who now enjoys a higher favorable rating than the current POS, errr, POTUS O’Community Organizer?

          66. Whether or not she knows about foreign policy is not the topic here.
            That is the Red Herring logical fallacy.

          67. Obama did not say that. Wise, thoughtful Sarah did when she attempted to explain why she wrote answers on her hand.

          68. Did you ever explain “57 states” Obama, or “2 shotgun blast out the back door” Biden?
            Or would denying those quotes be better to your political interests ?

          69. That’s what I wondered. That was her response to being asked why she writes on her hands.

          70. Once again you raise your ugly head. ….I am amazed at how you seem to know so much about Sarah…you must know her personally to say she ‘knows nothing’ about foreign policy etc’…and you know soooooo much about the pos in the WH too!!
            If you had an original thought to contribute to this site…please state it..We would appreciate the challenge …

          71. “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” — Hillary Clinton

            Most of you probably don’t get this, But she is correct. Consumers create jobs. Think about it…intelligently!

          72. Consumers aren’t born with JOBS providing income (FOR CONSUMPTION), UNLESS THEY SUCK OFF THE GOVERNMENT WELFARE SYSTEM, and even the taxes providing for THAT come from business and people employed by business.
            I hope you thought about that “intelligently”

          73. Pot calling the kettle black? This jumped from basic maternal instinct to ‘foreign policy’? Ok nasty!!

      1. Oh but she has a mind, which many on the left don’t have.
        (Hi, Nastasyana. Nice to see you again. 🙂 )

        1. Come on. She is really not bright and not because she is a conservative but because she does not think. Even if she were a democrat i would be ashamed to quote or advocate for her.

          1. You’ve been indoctrinated by a liberal media, she’s smarter than the Kenyan. Dumb people don’t run successful states.

          2. What’s hilarious is when yahoo runs one of their anti Palin stories, the dumbed downed useful idiots start their rants about her lack of intelligence which they describe by making so many grammatical mistakes that it proves their own stupidity.

          3. The left claims to care about women and blacks, as long as they vote democrat. Smear merchants.

          4. No she’s still harping the BLACK man’s burden, when even Hollywood acknowledged White Man’s Burden years ago.
            She has black ass inferiority complex.
            She needs that Obamacare for psychiatric help.

      2. She’s a smart women who has been smeared by liberals and MSM. She was also a successful governor with an 80% approval rating. The thing about the left is they’re all for women and blacks, as long as they vote democrat.

        1. The following is just a very small sample of how smart she is: Dumb Things Sarah Palin Said: A Top 10 List

          Who does she remind me of? Who? Who? What other politician has been known for putting his foot in his mouth every time he opened it.

          Oh yeah! Dan Quayle.

          Well, then, wouldn’t that mean that Sarah Palin is the new Dan Quayle?

          Sarah Qualin?

          Let’s look back at some of the most inane and insane things this wannabe Vice President who quit being governor because it got too hard and then “wrote” a book about all her trials and tribulations.

          NUMBER TEN: “I think on a national level your Department of Law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we’ve been charged with and automatically throw them out.” –Sarah Palin, referring to a department that does not exist while attempting to explain why as president she wouldn’t be subjected to the same ethics investigations that compelled her to resign as governor of Alaska.

          NUMBER NINE: “They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan.” –Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in San Francisco, shares her wealth of knowledge about geography.

          NUMBER EIGHT: “[T]hey’re in charge of the U.S. Senate so if they want to they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom.” –Sarah Palin, getting the vice president’s constitutional role wrong after being asked by a third grader what the vice president does. So, let’s see, she isn’t smarter than a third grader?

          NUMBER SEVEN: “All of ’em, any of ’em that have been in front of me over all these years.” –Sarah Palin, unable to name a single newspaper or magazine she reads. Please, the woman can read just as well as she “writes”.

          NUMBER SIX: “Well, let’s see. There’s ― of course in the great history of America there have been rulings that there’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American, and there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So, you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but……………” –Sarah Palin, unable to name a Supreme Court decision she disagreed with other than Roe vs. Wade. Well, she doesn’t read, and doesn’t know what the Veep does, how can we expect her to know any Supreme Court decisions?

          NUMBER FIVE: “Ohh, good, thank you, yes.” –Sarah Palin, after a notorious Canadian prank caller complimented her on the documentary about her life, Hustler’s “Nailin Paylin,”

          NUMBER FOUR: “We believe that the best of America is not all in Washington, D.C. … We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation.” –Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in Greensoboro, N.C.,. She can see Alaska from her house, but she can’t find her ass with her own two hands.

          NUMBER THREE: “Who calls a shot like that? Who makes a decision like that? It’s a disturbing trend.” –Sarah Palin, pushing a conspiracy theory that “In God We Trust” had been moved to the edge of coins because of the Obama administration. Nope, Sarah, you dimwit, you uneducated twit, you moron. The change was made by the Bush administration in 2007 and was later reversed by Congress, before Obama took office.

          NUMBER TWO: “The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society,’ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.” –-Sarah Palin, in a message posted on Facebook about Obama’s health care plan. Her quote has been named The Lie Of The Year, a dubious honor for America’s dumbest politico.

          NUMBER ONE: “As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? It’s Alaska. It’s just right over the border.” –Sarah Palin, explaining why Alaska’s proximity to Russia gives her foreign policy experience. I have experience in race relations because a black family lives down the street.

          Remember a lot of people in her own party didn’t want her on the presidential ticket and it is a known fact that she is mainly responsible for losing the election. Even people in her home start were worried that there might be an off chance she’d become president if something happened to McCain.

          1. I would put her negotiating skills against Obama’s anytime; she would bring back the money more times then not. John M is not a patriot, he was a collaborator with the Vietcong and that is proven by the fact that he was one of the very few POW’s who was never promoted while in captivity! He is a loser, Google it. He would most likely been as bad a president as Obama since he as untrustworthy.

          2. Well then you are as delusional as she is. You did read the quotes she has said in previous interviews did you not? I’m good, but I can’t make those things up. Her stupid comments showing her complete ignorance about politics and the world are saved on tapes and video for posterity. No wonder she ws such a hit for late night TV. Her material never stopped. McCain, not a fan.

          3. Ignorance of politics is a good thing, it has a tendency to bring out the truth and expose the the dillitants and liars on all sides who want to obfuscate instead of inform. Is she sophisticated…Heck no! But look at what our SO CALLED SOPHISTICATED SPEECH GIVER IN THE WHITE HOUSE HAS GIVEN US …A FOREIGN POLICY OF FAILURES THAT LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE ASSEMBLED BY THE KEY STONE COPS AND A SERIES OF LIES TO GET DOMESTIC LAWS PASSED THAT HAVE TURNED INTO WEALTH TRANSFERS AWAY FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS THAT HAVE HURT THE LOWER INCOME FOLKS MORE THAN THEY HAVE HELPED THEM, AND THEN WE MOVE INTO DIVISIVE RACE BAITING.

            I SAY A LACK OF SOPHISTICATION AND MORE BLUNTNESS IS WHAT IS CALLED FOR IN SPADES.

          4. Yawn! Oh where to start with Hitlery, O’Community organizer and every other vetted liar in the liberal progressive ranks of the communist wing of American politics…the Demonrat PartyParty. They aren’t limited to just saying something stupid, they also continue to lie knowing full well that the useful idiots, people just like you, are too stupid to know the difference.

            How’s it feel?

          5. How’s it feel living in that glass house? Your ignorance shines through in your writing. You can’t seem to write a decent sentence, but you are good at saying nothing with a flare of demeaning terms. You must be so proud of yourself that you know so many nasty terms and can be so hateful. Sorry you have such a problem being a decent person. When it comes to lies, the Republicans (Neo) hold the trophy for that. Ted Cruz is a shining example.

          6. Yaawwwn! Boring!

            Never reveal all of yourself to other people; hold back something in reserve so that people are never quite sure if you really are that stupid.

            Useful idiot wants a cracker? barraaccckkk!

          7. Oh how wonderful it must be to be so so perfect and never make a typing mistake. That is a mistake, but the things you say are dumb.

          8. kris,
            OK. Here you go…Things YOU say are dumb. Things liberals say are dumb. Things the left-wing whackos say are dumb. Now, disprove it.
            Your turn……….

          9. Awww Kris,
            Please, please, please Daddy.
            I look up to you. You are so smart. You are my hero.
            Please, please, please………..

          10. Don’t care about your list because her past accomplishments far outshine anything Sarah Palin half did. At least see finished her jobs. Besides I’m not really supporting her anyway.

          11. Hillary resigned as Secretary of State.
            Kerry is finishing her job, and they both sucked at it.
            Hillary had Benghazi and Kerry with his stupid Syrian “REDLINE”.
            I think you better get back to that “RESEARCH”.

          12. No, you’re the one who needs to do the research. You’re just offering right wing rhetoric which is rarely based in fact that is old and tired.

          13. So left wing rhetoric implies Hillary did not resign ??!!
            I wonder why lurch is doing her job then ??

          14. I guess the question is why did each resign. I have to admit that I feel sorry for both of them because they were really under fire from the media. Palin was heading toward bankruptcy because of all the ethics violations she was defending. Hwr family was taking makor hits in the media as well. She also wanted to do a book tour which was not allowed while Gov. of Alaska. There was far more money to be made from a book tour and speaking engagements. Speaking engagements have been very monetarily kind to each of them.

          15. We finally agree.
            They both had their reasons.
            I think Hillary felt some heat and wanted to maintain better chances for POTUS, and I feel Sarah wanted to give her family some space from the media.

      3. Yes you can, but if you and your ilk had the power you would make it a law that we couldn’t speak out about your vile behavior. All the lies they put out on Palin isn’t because they believe she is stupid but they know she represent a danger to their Fascist/Communist agenda. And you’re just a useful Idiot and when you’re no longer needed for votes you’ll be discarded as trash. History has proven this over and over.

          1. I like the term “useless idiot” because there is nothing useful about a Liberal……nothing!!

      4. She must have a lot in common with you then, Nastasyana. Have you run a state? Have you run a successful business? Have you run a campaign? Have you tried to do anything and succeed or fail – or are you just out there maligning others? I agree with Sarah 100%. Not only did Lena brag about the behavior and call herself a “sexual predator” – she did it for monetary gain – not caring at all about her sister or family’s reaction. She was looking for media attention and money. The Duggar family gained nothing and did not wish to – when Josh confessed it was to his family, church, police and wife. He confessed for forgiveness – not monetary gain.

        1. Nope probably to old! He likes to take those flights on his friends plane so he can (RUMORED-HAS not YET been proved) entertain the young girls overseas! I did say it is rumored! Although it would NOT surprise me!

      5. Really? What do you base that opinion on? Nothing, obviously. Ms. Palin is articulate and precisely accurate in her assessment of the situation–which cannot be said for the remarks of her detractors.

        1. Do you know the meaning of articulate? Listen to president Obama speak and you be able to hear”articulate”.

          1. Since when has the articulation of half truth, deceitful misinformation and outright lies been something to admire? Only to you useless idiots!

      6. And you are a “thinker” ? Before you open your mouth and demean someone else, you should be at least as intelligent and accomplioshed as the one you demean. So what are your academic, journalistic, or political credentials?

          1. And your “much better than hers ” consists of what? Do you expect one to believe in something when you say nothing? All i can garner from your post is that you have a loathing for attractive, intelligent women – or maybe it’s just your own personal war on women? Oh, but then that would make you a Republican.

        1. Now that’s just plain silly. She is a celebrity and as such is open to scrutiny. People listen to what she says and she has a responsibility to know what she is talking about.
          I am not a celebrity. In fact, you don’t know me at all and I am not open to your scrutiny. You can disagree or dislike what I say but any comments you make about my mind or my intelligence are groundless.

          1. I don’t have to say anything about your intelligence……it shows and speaks for itself!

        1. What’s with you people and “your”. You are = you’re.
          None of you should have anything to say about my intelligence, obviously.

      7. She thinks. It is just that she is a very smart conservative. And you don’t like smart or conservative. It is too hard for you to have your agenda when there are smart or conservative people around. LOL

      8. nastasyana (putz),
        So, I see you agree that the media uses double standards when it comes to the schmucks on the left. ,

  1. There is a difference between a seven year old’s sexual exploitation and a 15 year old ‘s sexual molestation.
    Sarah Palin is too dumb to understand this.

          1. ….the language that you and Sarah and others of her ilk understand. I understand standard English.

    1. No, you are excusing the obvious differences. Dunham was aggressive by her own admission. And she is still proud of what she did.
      You KNOW that. But your bigotry prevents you from admitting it. Face it. The Duggar actions were so minor that the police and DA would not file charges. And Josh stopped and apologized.
      Now Dunham did EVERYTHING she could think,of to induce further sex. And she did not apologize. And she still glories in what she did.
      And YOU still excuse her.
      “They not only do what is wrong. They approve of those who do wrong.” That is Bible and it condemns YOU..

        1. You could have looked it up. I googled it. Romans 1:32.
          Now you can ignore it IF you were only trying to defend this APPROVER OF EVIL.

        2. Romans 1:32King James Version (KJV)
          32 Who
          knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are
          worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do
          them.

        3. I did for someone else. And YOU COULD GOOGLE it just like I did. Romans 1:32. And don’t think that I make up verses. I have no guile and when I reference a statement from the Bible, it is there.

      1. Please do not send me bible stuff. You people use the bible for your own purposes and propaganda. A seven year old is not a 15 year old. Young girls are curious about their sexual
        selves because they cannot see their organs. Men have theirs standing out there and at 15 know what to do with them. We heard about it because he got caught. He apologized because he got caught. Lena Dunham wrote about an experience she had as a 7 year old and when she learned it was not acceptable she stopped. Not acceptable meaning she was invading the rights of another and not because she got caught. That;s how people develop morals- by learning to control their desires or curiosity because of the rights of others.

        1. No a 7 year old is not a 15 year old but a 7 year old did not STAY a 7 year old! She continued into her TEEN years!!! Can you possibly get that through your thick skull????

        2. You have proof that she stopped? No.
          Was she apologetic? NO.
          Was she turned in to the police by her on family? NO.
          Was she denounced by the liberals like they have Duggar? NO.
          And you seem to think that it is okay because girls don’t have mirrors and can’t SEE IT? LOL.
          Then there is your last statement that is just plain wrong. I have one name to respond to the falseness of it. BILL CLINTON.
          And then I will remind you that morality is FROM GOD. And if you don’t understand that, then explain why it is built into people all over the world EXCEPT the sociopaths.
          Go back to school. You have so much that you have not learned.
          And the first thing that you should know by now is that without the Bible and God in our lives, America as it WAS would never have happened.
          I bet you don’t understand that either. That would require you to study history.
          So Nasty, what is your god? You have obviously reject Jesus Christ. When you finally understand just how much He loves you, I hope it is not too late.

          1. Children display sexuality differently at different ages

            Parents, as well as professionals who work with young children, need to understand sexuality at various developmental stages of childhood. For example, toddlers and preschoolers are openly interested and curious about their own and others’ bodies. Young school-aged children often are full of curiosity and questions, yet have an increased desire for privacy. Consequently, some sexual behaviors are hidden for a time. Preadolescent children (ages 9-12) demonstrate a heightened awareness of sexuality as they prepare for adolescence and adulthood.

            It is also helpful to keep in mind family attitudes and customs with regard to privacy, openness about sex, and media exposure for children. Professionals should explore these areas with families when helping parents understand their child’s sexuality.

            15-year-old Josh Duggar molested his 5-year-old sister — one of at least seven acts of molestation.

            § 61-8B-7. Sexual abuse in the first degree. **Update Notice: This Section has been amended by CHAPTER 15 OF 2006 (1st Ex. Sess.), 77TH LEGISLATIVE SESSION
            (a) A person is guilty of sexual abuse in the first degree when:
            (1) Such person subjects another person to sexual contact without their consent, and the lack of consent results from forcible compulsion; or
            (2) Such person subjects another person to sexual contact who is physically helpless; or
            (3) Such person, being fourteen years old or more, subjects another person to sexual contact who is eleven years old or less.
            (b) Any person who violates the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a felony, and, upon conviction thereof, shall be imprisoned in the penitentiary not less than one year nor more than five years, or fined not more than ten thousand dollars and imprisoned in the penitentiary not less than one year nor more than five years.
            (1976, c. 43; 1984, c. 56.)

            Lena Dunham was 7 and her sister was i think 4.

          2. Lots of words proving your hypocrisy. Face it. Admit it. You are a liberal, possibly a homosexual , who hates Christians and never passs up a chance to use YOUR double standard against your “ENEMIES”
            Who made you God?

          3. Oh Shut up! I don’t hate christians, I just don’t believe in them and the rhetoric.
            Now Jesus, he was someone to believe in before the hypocrites twisted his words and called it christianity. And of course if i don’t agree with you I am homosexual or muslim or stupid or communist or whatever is not YOU. Go back to sleep and wake up again in twenty years.

          4. Then explain how you can to be so intolerant of the Duggars. You certainly do not have personal knowledge. And what you have said indicates that you respect Jesus but don’t accept Him as God, Lord and a sacrifice for sins. So what are you. And why are you so judgemental for someone who you have NO IDEA as to what happened?
            Why would I suggest that you are a homosexual, muslim, or anything else? Because you are acting JUST LIKE they do.
            I notice that you did not deny being a liberal. I guess that is significant.

          5. I am who I am. I have my own thoughts based on information and knowledge I have gained through education, discussion with people smarter than I am and also with people who have different perspectives from mine. I am not intolerant of the Duggars. You people see things in black and white only. All I said is that as a 15 year old, he is more knowledgeable about what molestation is and apologized after being caught. Hopefully he has received help for his pedophilia. Denham was not a pedophile and i resent your comparing the two just to make your point The Duggans are celebrities who inflict their christian values for money on the people who watch them. To my knowledge. Lena Dunham just wrote a book about her childhood.

          6. According to you, good is bad and bad is good.
            The Duggar boy is not a pedophile. What happened ceased 12 years ago. and NO ONE but you has suggested that it has. It was over and forgiven and forgotten. BUT YOU have determined that he is still guilty. Not even God is doing that.
            And then you excuse and celebrate Dunham, who NEVER apologized and has given no indication that she has stopped such actions.
            God help you.

          7. It is not for me to call him guilty, I am not a judge. and personally I really don’t care. It is up to his sisters and his community to forgive him- not me. I don’t celebrate Lena Dunham. Frankly I don’t care. It is her sister and her community to whom she must answer…not me
            You are really the hypocrite. You people make a big deal about this and then invoke your god’s forgiveness as proof that he is somehow redeemed.. Perhaps god’s punishment for him and his family is the loss of sponsorship and the loss of their awful program.

          8. God decided if he is redeemed. But I know the promises of God. And redemption is just a matter of repentance.
            And if you really did not care, you would have understood that the sisters had not only forgiven, they had forgotten. And EVERY PERSON like you who keeps on harping on this just continues to hurt them all.So it is time to do what you say.
            But then you go and put your foot in your mouth. You claim the authority of God and claim that God is punishing them. That is hypocrisy. LEAVE IT ALONE would be forgiving. And you claim that you have. But then you just can’t help your mean spirit.
            And the last proves that you were against them the whole time. It was not enough to just not watch their program. You hated them enough that your find JOY in their loss.
            Shame on you.
            By the way, I know the forgiveness of God. And I know that HE is capable of forgiving even you for your hate IF you repent.

          9. Strange that you would make such a statement. God sees things as BLACK AND WHITE. With Him, there is no gray at all. Either you obey Him or you don’t.
            And you truly are intolerant of the Duggars as indicated by your remark about their “terrible ” program.
            Next, Christians don’t inflict their values on anyone. They just obey God and do what is right to the best of their ability.
            And people of the world HATE any Christian because it removes the false excuse for being wicked.
            As to Denham being a pedophile, I guess that depends on whether she is still doing that stuff. And since she never repented or apologized, I will assume that she is.

      1. A 15 year old minor is not the same as a 7 year old minor. He should have known better and obviously he did and continued anyway.

        1. Do you ever get tired of being wrong?

          Minor Definition: A young person not yet of the age of majority. A person who is legally underage; who has not yet attained the age of majority, and which are denied the ability to fully and freely contract.

    2. Duggar was a minor. Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew are being accused of having sex with underage prostitutes at Jeff Epstein’s orgy island and also on Epstein’s private jet, the Lolita express. You have what’s known as selective liberal outrage. You are dumb as a box of rocks.

    3. Hmmmmm, only in the eyes of liberal progressives could that be the case…in other words, you are WRONG! Then again, normal rational thought has never been their stong point!

    1. Maxwell Friedlander YOU ARE SO RIGHT, but REMEMBER it just so happens that Duggars are Christians, see. to MOST of America Christians are fair targets, to them Christians live in glass houses, and most of America looks for reason to attack Christians, always, but some day it will back fire on some of those Americans

      1. All of us are sinners, Christians included. The difference is that we accept that truth and Jesus’ sacrifice which brings us forgiveness.

      1. Who admitted to the same behaviors, into her TEEN years !! (Lena Dunham)
        A hypocrite is a hypocrite !!
        I would never defend either of them !!
        They both had issues !!

    2. Worse! He publicly admitted wrong doing and repented.
      She did not. Instead she is exploiting it for financial gain.

  2. Chessmaster Sarah is right. They reward Dunham and ATTACK Duggar and get most every other America to join in a lynch mob mentality against Duggar and encourage support for Dunham. Some Americans seem to pick at choose who they will clap for and who they will throw daggers at. SICK REALLY SICK. I wonder how many other Americans have interesting skeletons and SECRETS in THEIR closets they are hiding carefully, oh if the public only knew about some of the rest of you and under a microscope then what would we see

    1. Anyone who is running for President right now who even comes close to her WISDOM, INTEGRITY, AND COURAGE? NO. And they never will.

        1. Hey nasty, how about you name one person of YOUR party that could go through the vast investigation that Sarah did and come out as clean? We all know beyond the shadow of a doubt it won’t be Odumbo or Hitlery!!

        2. Yes it is in the form of a question. But then that doesn’t matter to a brilliant leftist like yourself.

          1. Are you saying, “IS THERE anyone running…etc. And i said THANK GOD!!! NO
            Anyone close to her wisdom, integrity and courage would be as ineffectual and ignorant as she.

        3. Quite right. So here it is as a sentence.
          Is there anyone who is running for President right ow who even comes close to her WISDOM, INTEGRITY, AND COURAGE? NO
          And it is unlikely that they ever will.
          Better?
          By your first two words, you seem to imply that it is a good thing NOT to have WISDOM, INTEGRITY, AND COURAGE. Is that correct?

          1. And yes, I said Thank God there is no one running for president who even comes above HER wisdom, integrity and courage

          2. “…Thank God … no one running for president … comes above HER…”
            Wow, so every one running is a pile of junk?

          3. Being facetious! and sarcastic, No one who comes even close to her wisdom, integrity, courage.

          4. That is irrational. You seem to be saying that you do not want anyone who is wise, courageous and has integrity. That would make you an enemy of America. Is that correct?

  3. Sarah, you missed one important point. The Duggar wa apparently so minor that no at the time, including the police and the DA decided to file charges. And THAT proves that it was not that bad a deal.
    NO CHARGES WERE FILED.
    Yet the anti-Christians out there will never pass a chance to shred someone trying to serve God and be Christians.

  4. Perverts and hypocrites running and working for the main stream media. They are all comic book fodder except there is more truth in comic books than in the main (lame) stream media.

  5. The difference is Josh and his family are renowned for being Christians. The left are in all out war with anything they deem is Christian. They want so badly to do away with morality and kindness to others which are strong beliefs in the Christian faith. The stars who (like Miley Cyrus) come out dressed in barely there clothes and do disgusting acts in public dare to denounce a young teen who confessed,received counseling, went on to be a successful adult with children of his own. Those stars who glorify sex on stage as adults,should not condemn a young teen for being curious. If anything their behavior could lead to MORE young teens wanting to experiment with sex. Josh grew up in a small southern community and was isolated much more than most boys his age. No excuse for what he did, but merely a reason why.

  6. I agree with Sarah. But also, what about the famous ADULTS who have molested children, but who have been given a free pass never suffering anything regarding their careers.
    1) The guy who plays the fairly liberal minister on Seventh Heaven, who admitted to molesting minors…. Show still running
    2) 22 year old Rob Lowe, having sex with a 17 year old and making a sex video without her knowledge… Still a popular star.
    3) Bill Clinton sexually involved with an underling, and now going with his pedophile friend to “orgy island” where the guy has minor sex slaves, and one of the 17 year olds claims she saw him engaging in orgies with this girl…. Still ever popular even though we know he’s lied through his teeth before, and his wife not only knows what he is, but in defending him is participating in the continued allowance of his disgusting actions.
    4) Michael Jackson, who slept with young boys for years, but claimed nothing happened, which is really hard to believe. – Never suffered a moment in his career right up to the day he died.
    5) The school teacher who didn’t go to jail “because she was too pretty”, for sleeping with a male student (a minor)

    1. Her daughter made a mistake, have you led a perfect life? Bristol is a republican, if she was a democrat she would have murdered the baby.

      1. She proved the effectiveness of abstinence. So why don’t we allow contraceptives. Colorado furnished IUDs and lowered their teen pregnancy rates significantly – until discovered by the Republicans who made the program illegal – so teen pregnancy – and abortion – is back up again.

  7. Children need to be instructed of Bible morality at an early age so they will be able to recognize sexual predator activity. Jesus is risen and saves those who call upon His name.

  8. Did ANYONE on ANY media outlet… delineate exactly what “offense” the Duggar boy was supposed to have committed ???

    I do NOT by any means, condone predatory sexual conduct, rape, incest, or such…

    though children — out of natural curiosity, have :”played doctor ” ever since there has been children… with no lasting effects on either participant…

    It only seems that when some busybody asswipe ” child protective” agency gets involved, that all circumstances get blown ridiculously out of proportion and reason, then the parties are both branded for life as criminals, when such is far from the case…

  9. The reaction to the Duggers is amazing to me! The parents actively intervened with corrective action though the police considered it too minor to charge. Josh stopped what he was doing. When he was confronted he did not deny it but took responsibility, admitted that what he did was wrong, and expressed sorrow and apology, I have yet to see admission of wrong doing or repentence in any of the recent Washington DC sex scandals, or from Bill Clinton, or Lena Dunham.

  10. Sarah should be the first woman president because she is wiser and has more courage than any of the metro, sissified “Re-PUNK-lican” men candidates and that other (woman?) shrew of an ole, ugly commie whore “Hillary the Pillory Clinton but she will not have a snowball’s chance in hell do to the two-headed, one party oligarchy that is in place and because, like the demonic psychopath our Muslim-Marxist jihadist now residing in the “Outhouse”, it is already a done deal that the ole, ugly commie whore will also be implanted as POTUS! REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION!

  11. I have always liked Sarah Palin. She has always been “shooting from the hip” on issues that really matter to her country, which made her VERY popular as the Governor of Alaska for so long… it’s because she has ETHICS instead of being politically correct and tolerant of everything that’s wrong with our government nowadays. If she were to run for President, I would vote for her in a heartbeat!!!! God Bless Sarah Palin!!

  12. Sarah Palin is back in the picture again! I thought she was in prison for fighting in a tavern. The whole family was involved in bitter brawl over beer. I thought that they sent her to prison. We know Repubs and TPs bribe their way out of prison.

    1. Hmmm, sounds like another troll. I hope you have some entertainment from this – and that you land a job for the liberalist campaigns. You are trained and experienced in making do with such backward comments.

      1. So you do not know she was involved in a tavern brawl. She tried to apologize to those she hurt. It did not work. Any way she is no longer as hot as she was in 2008. Too much fighting in bars.

        1. And? Tavern brawl or no tavern brawl – apology taken or denied – I have seen a LITTLE less hot trash from liberal play-media. Now, about your liberalist campaigns job. That RINO and tea party party announcement will be getting a lot of laughter – from already far leftists who have no care of the truth.
          Report of your station – absolutely no content applied to article – Troll.

  13. Palin couldn’t slam a door, much less anyone else. She is a joke and a quitter. The intersting thing about her is nothing. It would be amazing if she actually decided to finish anything she starts. Maybe she might finish washing the dishes from last year.

    She’s a hypocrite, trying desperately to distract and minimize a serious issue. Duggar is a pedophile, a child molester and no amount of finger pointing and destraction will ever change that reality. He is not a mistaken youth since he knew exactly what he was doing… most 15 year old kids know about girls.. so let’s not pretend this is the innocent “doctor” games of a 6 or 7 year old.

    His children should be removed from his house to protect them because we ALREADY know that a pedophile will continue his molestation of children and who better than his own kids?

    Place him in jail where he belongs along with the parents for I tentionally hiding this criminal from justice. The parents have allowed him to molest children and are just as guilty.

  14. Perhaps it’s time for Lena to change into some striped suits. Her sister ought to have her arrested, then sue her for years of depression which she no doubt experienced.

  15. Proving she’s totally missed the point of the Duggar controversy. Unlike Ms. Dunham, the Duggars’ made claims that allowing people equal rights would result in sexual predation while sheltering and hiding a SEXUAL PREDATOR from justice. That is hypocrisy. Whether 7 YEAR OLD Lena Dunham should have gotten into trouble looking at her sisters vagina (but not touching) is a matter for her parents.

    So far, Ms. Dunham has NOT campaigned to prevent people from being discriminated against.

    Once again missing the point.

    1. When one takes them down to the police station that does not seem like HIDING.

      WHEREAS waiting to and putting in a book years later seems a bit in iteresting and me thinks it was a bit more than that.

      1. When his actions were no longer a political liability to his father when the statue of limitations was running out.

        Still the hypocrisy of claiming that LGBT rights was a threat to child while hiding a sexual predator was the point.

        1. Same for Miss Dunham except it appears she kept it to herself and it was only brought to light as a sensation LGBT CLAIM AS part of a book to make money. There was never any attempt at help for either party to see if there was damage of any kind; there in lies the difference.

  16. I think that Sarah is basically an idiot but I very much agree with what she said. NO ONE is giving the dugger boy a pass. He did wrong, owned up to it and got help. Bad enough that Josh is being crucified but so are his sisters

  17. As an Alaskan I can tell you ex- Govenor Ballin’ is a narscitic blowhard and an emarrassment to this great state and the country. Thank God she never made it passed wannabe.

  18. It is quite obvious to some of us that the left will make up any kind of excuse to justify their Negative opinion of others regardless of how Right the person they are attacking are.
    This is standard protocol for them and they are following the lead of barak Obama and Valerie Jarrett, both who are our country’s worst enemies and the worst this country has ever seen since we gained our independence in the 1700s.
    But the Liberal Socialistic Democrats, fully believe that their thought process is the only process that should be acceptable here in our country which is mostly contrary to our U.S. Constitution. It is the Left wing who are going to be the final destruction of our country and those of us who clearly see this will continue the fight to keep our country in tact, regardless of how many of Hitler’s offspring attempt to defy, belittle, call names and all other bashing techniques that are imposed upon us.
    In today’s society, we see our people being brainwashed by the major Propaganda machines and so far, it has been working enough to keep our countrymen and women divided. This is exactly what Obama’s plan was and still is, to divide and conquer. However, he has NOT gained enough support yet to make it all happen.
    There is Nothing wrong with those like Sarah Palin and her way of thinking and she is a whole lot more intelligent than what the Left wingers want people to believe which is why they go into an attack mode the moment they hear her name mentioned for any reason. She is definitely Constitutional minded, believes in smaller and less intrusive government, she is for our original heritage and moral status, unlike the left who had prayer removed from our schools and many public places, promotes gay activity, same sex marriage, race baiting, anti-Constitutional agendas, stricter regulations on our people all the way down to the point where people can even get thrown in jail for collecting rain water on their private properties.
    Now, tell me what is wrong with this picture within our country!!!!!
    There is NO way that any left winger can ever convince us that their mindset is normal or justifiable, PERIOD!!
    And one other point here, unless a Declaration of War has been signed by Congress, our military has NO business in foreign countries, acting like a world’s police or anything else for that matter, fighting and dying for some other country’s internal problems that have NOTHING to do with our country or are a national security threat.
    It is our administrations who are instigating the hatred toward America for these very actions and therefore, we will be the ones who pay in the end for the mishandling of any and all foreign affairs that our country instigates which are Negative!!

  19. TO: Nastasyana,
    Sarah Palin is a briliant woman, far more than you. No doubt you believe that Hillary is a superior person, she is at bilking people.

  20. Amen gov. Palin, Lena Dunham is a pedifile, as I to dont condone Josh Duggar for his wrong doing, the Duggars dealt with this their son was given severe consequences for what he did, it’s not the whole world’s business, while this disgusting waste of time puts it in a book proudly what she did to her sister, Josh duggar, I seriously doubt wanted to relive his crime I only say his keeping it private was one thing but never telling his job was a huge mistake. In my opinion Lena is far worse than Josh because she has no remorse for what she did. In fact she thinks she did no wrong, that’s the disgusting part.

  21. This board is the typical chatboard, containing ad hominem attacks by the tree-huggers and other liberals on all those who disagree with their ivory-tower idealogue diatribes. Kirsten Powers, one of their own, has enough gumption to realize that their punch-in-the-mouth bullying tactics makes every attempt to shut off legitimate debate, so that they triumph over reason with their emotionally excessive abuses against any and all opposition. She put it in her latest book. I can at least salute her effort as being somewhat heroic and noteworthy.

  22. Sarah Palin is one of those who stands for decency of life and moral integrity. Yet when she does, those who are opposed to those standards attack viciously with their vitriol and attempt to discredit her for it. Let those of us who stand with her get ready to suffer the same.

  23. First of all, I’m no fan of Lena Dunham. I’m not even sure exactly who she is. If the stuff about her molesting her sister is true, that’s pretty sick. I had not heard this before. But, the contrast with Josh Duggar, is that the Duggar family puts on this comical, embarrassingly stupid, self righteous, super Christian act. They make Ned Flounders look like Hugh Heffner. I keep hearing that Christianity is supposed to make you a good person, and a good person would not molest his sisters. I detect some dichotomy here.
    And, in other comments, “Sarah Palin is a briliant (sic) woman. And “God Bless Sarah Palin!!” JESUS CHRIST!!! When I listen to Palin talk, I think her personal mannerisms, and the quality and cadence of her speech, are those of a retarded 6 year old. She takes STUPID to whole new heights.
    And, another one, “Liberals have to justify the LGBT movement, no matter how sick it is or who it harms!” Who does it harm? These people are born that way! I know I’m no paragon, but I had a messed up childhood, with a father and mother in a bad marriage. Father tried to teach me to hate all women. But, I knew that I REALLY liked women from about the age of 3. People aren’t “taught” to be gay, and people don’t just sit around and decide “I think I’m gonna be gay.” And, I hope my sick, twisted father is rolling over in his grave, but I still like women, and feel good, telling my wife I love her, and when she says “I love you,” back to me, I feel like running around and hugging strangers. Father told me many times, “Your trouble all begin when you tell a woman you love her.”
    Concerning who gayness hurts. A few years ago, I listened to Michael Reagan on the radio, hysterically yelling, “They’re forcing gay marriage on us!” Like, the cops are going door to door and breaking up marriages and making Joe move in with his neighbor George. Just more right wing over reaction.
    Oh, by the way, I’m not a “believer,” and I’ve raised a smart, good son, an engineer and wonderful daughter working on a PHD, without ever even thinking of molesting either of them, and I love little children, with their wide eyed innocence, before they learn all the crazy hatreds of adults. When I say I love children, I don’t mean in a “Duggar” sense, and I think people like Duggar, and others who go after children are mentally screwed up.
    It would be interesting if Mike Huckabee, or another Fox News darling turned out to be a child molester. Then Fox would be saying that child molesting is not bad, that the founding fathers were child molesters, and that liberals say that’s bad because they hate America. (note to any right wing people reading this; the last paragraph, about molesting not being bad, does not reflect my personal views; it was meant to be sarcastic.) I know from experience that many right wingers do not get sarcasm.

    WE DO NOT NEED 1ST YEAR POLITICIANS, OR GOVERNERS THAT HAVE SOLD OUT TO BIG MONEY PACS.

    1—HE DOES NOT NEED A JOB, 2—DOES NOT LIE TO YOU, 3—DOES NOT NEED BIG PAC MONEY, 4—DOES NOT NEED A BOOK DEAL, 5—IS TIRED OF SEEING OUR COUNTRY GOING DOWN THE TOLLET.

    A NEW BRAND OF POLITICS, THE TRUTH. IN MY 85 YEARS, I HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED, SELF FUNDING, WITH NO OBLIGATIONS, PERSON RUN FOR ANY OFFICE.

    TRUMP WANTS TO FIX THIS NATION. GET OUT AND WORK FOR HIM THEN VOTE FOR HIM.

    TRUMP IS THE ONLY ONE QUALIFIED TO RUN THE LARGEST BUSINESS ON EARTH, THE US GOVRNMENT. AGAIN, WE DO NOT NEED, FIRST YEAR SENATORS, MAYORS, OR GOVERNERS ALL OBLIGATED TO BIG MONEY PACS WITH NO BUSINESS EXPERIENCE, WE NEED DONALD TRUMP.
