UPDATE: Today’s (June 6, 2011) article from Andrew Sullivan adds a few more urgent remarks about the points made in this post and includes a story about how Palin’s minions went so far as to actually go into Wikipedia and CHANGE history! Yeppers…bold and brazen they are! When Palin gets it wrong, they flood in to fill the vacuous void on her behalf.
When a staunch conservative such as George Will sounds the alarm about the realities of a President Palin – and for that matter Pawlenty or Bachmann – yet no one listens, what is it going to take? When the media focus was obsessed with the Weiner hoopla…Will was making an extremely serious point that was heard by a mere handful of interested Americans who do not look at any of this as a joke.
GEORGE WILL’S FATEFUL QUESTION: “SHOULD WE GIVE THIS WOMAN[SARAH PALIN] ” NUCLEAR WEAPONS”?
by George E. Lowe on Saturday, June 4, 2011 at 2:15pm
The Conservative columnist George Will , a modern Paul Revere, ought to be given a special Medal of Freedom for his warning, of 28 May, 2011, on “This Week”[ABC] about the frightening prospect of giving access to America’s nuclear weapon stockpile–approx 35,000 “nukes” to a future President Sarah Palin. George Will’s exact words were: “SHOULD WE GIVE THIS WOMAN NUCLEAR WEAPONS?.”
Now, Will knows what few Americans know: ALL AMERICA’S NUCLEAR WEAPONS ARE THE PERSONAL PROPERTY OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA. IF THE MILITARY WISHES TO USE THEM IN A WAR/PRE-EMPTIVE ATTACK, THEY MUST BE RELEASED “PERSONALLY” BY THE PRESIDENT. That has been the law of the land since President Truman ordered the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki in August 1945. And it is the key reason why a military officer follows the President of the USA at all times with a brief case –”THE ARMAGEDDON FOOTBALL”- which contains the Top Secret CODES to release the PRESIDENT’S VERY OWN NUCLEAR WEAPONS. [See the 1999 movie "Deterrence" for a realistic account of the process by which President Emerson--stuck in a Dinner during an Iowa snow storm, finally releases his "nukes" to vaporize Baghdad --murdering millions.]
George Will added, “THE QUESTION ANSWERS ITSELF.” True, but my question is: “WHY was the MAIN/LAME STREAM MEDIA, CABLE NEWS & THE INTERNET so obsessed with “WEINERGATE” this past week and NOT with the very Fate of the Earth & God’s Very Creation –IF the American people get conned/euchred into giving “NUCLEAR WEAPONS” to “THIS WOMAN”?
Recall in her 2008 Campaign, Palin didn’t know what the Bush Doctrine of Pre-Emptive War was? And the other day in Mass. her lame attempt to re-write “The mid-night ride of Paul Revere”, raises serious questions about how much does she know about “Nuclear Deterrents & the Doctrine of Deterrence”? That civilization- ending question-also answers itself!
Very worried in Florida. George E. Lowe

Author Biography, “It Can Happen Here: A Fascist Christian America”
George E. Lowe was born in Scranton, PA (1928) and educated in the public schools of NewYork/New Jersey/PA. He graduated from Grove City College (BA-1950) and U. of Chicago (MA -1953) and taught at all levels of American education (1950-93). Served over 30 years in the Federal Government (1953-88), including US Naval Intelligence Officer (Japan, Hawaii & the Pentagon), Foreign Service Officer (African Affairs & Paris Embassy), and Civil Servant (OE/ED). Author of The Age of Deterrence, Little, Brown (1964), and many articles on military policy, nuclear weapons, education, and the environment. Speechwriter in Navy Dept. (1961,65)/Department of Education (1981-88). Married in 1954, with two daughters and two Jack Russell Terriers. Hobbies are cooking/baking, book collecting, traveling, and birding. Splits the year in Stuart, Florida and Port Medway, Nova Scotia.
George is a friend and fellow researcher who was the first person to tell me in August 2008 that Palin is one of the most dangerous people in the world. The 2nd person to say that within a month of George was Pastor Howard Bess of Palmer, Alaska who knows Palin.
Adding to all of these very real concerns about radical Christian candidates (and yes, Sarah – you are every bit a candidate whether official or not) is their glaring lack of the most basic American history knowledge! Here is a clip of Palin claiming to have a greater wealth of knowledge about the Debt Ceiling debate and diminishing the financial catastrophe that could cripple America as a response to the numerous learned financial experts such as Timothy Geitner. This short clip goes on to show that Palin cannot even answer a simple question about a significant event in American history as she completely bumbles the story of Paul Revere.
But she shares this same level of misinformed revisionist history with the likes of Bachmann who is wrapped in the same cloth as Palin. Here is a video put together by Think Progress who compiled numerous Bachmannisms.
Now look back at the beginning of this post and think about not only Palin and Bachmann – but the line-up just like them poising themselves for a run at the White House in 2012 and beyond.
If this doesn’t scare you into going out and getting as many people as you can to VOTE in 2012…I honestly don’t know what will.
