Gov. Palin Talked About the Miranda Rights At the Convention

Reagan: Peace Through Strength -- Political Ad 1980


And this is from part of a transcript from the Rush LImbaugh show where he was talking about the Miranda Rights Obama wants done to terrorists. More copmparisons between Reagan and Sarah Palin being right on how to fight the enemy. ~ Wild Thing

The Weekly Standard on his blog mentioned that terrorist detainees in Afghanistan are being read their Miranda rights.

This signals a huge shift once again that fighting terrorism is a criminal enterprise. It brings back the old days of the way the Clinton administration went about it. But when you start Mirandizing noncitizens, especially foreign enemy combatants on the battlefield, when you start Mirandizing them, you are granting them constitutional rights when they are not citizens. Now, if you can do that, if you can grant a constitutional right and Mirandize a foreign terrorist, enemy combatant, then I guess you can automatically grant citizenship to people who are not citizens, couldn't you?

Andy McCarthy has written much about this at National Review Online, and he actually goes back and says one of the people that can be blamed for this is Senator McCain. I don't have his story right in front of me, but Senator McCain supported -- back when McCain was on his anti-torture bandwagon and was trying to curry favor with people on the left to get their votes by agreeing that the US tortured people.

One of the ways that McCain sought to prevent torture and make it illegal, which it always has been anyway, was to make it possible for what the Obama administration is doing. And they did this on the quiet. It took a member of Congress finding this out. Sarah Palin warned of this in her acceptance speech at St. Paul, the Republican convention, last September.

SARAH PALIN: Al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America, and he's worried that someone won't read 'em their rights.

Look, this woman was drawing 20,000 people, or more, at campaign rallies. She was the sole source of excitement and passion during the Republican campaign.And she knows what she's talking about.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Sarah spoke the truth and didn't hold back. She has not changed one bit and stays constant. I think that is why the rino's are afraid of her too. They go back and forth and we never can count on them being consistent as a conservative. They vote demorcat on more things then they vote Republican.

I sure wish Sarah would drop that millstone around her neck and run as an independent conservative, not as a Republican. I can't claim any party loyalty after supporting them all my adult life and being dealt the choice of one Communist over another at the polls at every election. That would truly bring out the rats on both sides of the 'Progressive' aisle.

Those were a fast 8 years. We didn't know how good we had it under Ronald Reagan. What a great man, speaker(no teleprompters), for a second It felt good just to hear his voice again.

Have we fallen that far, OMG this can't be happening.

Jack, the RNC now has really been snubbing us
and I really am tired of it. I called to
complain about their backing Charlie Crist
and no one would even talk to me. They kept
putting me over to another extension one
after the other. I just wanted to ask them
why they did not back Marco Rubio the
conservative that is running opposite
the rino Crist.
