Sarah Palin is giving the people what they want (or want they want to be up in arms about) by starting her own subscription-based online network.

The Sarah Palin Channel, which went live on Sunday, bills itself as a "direct connection" between the former Alaska governor and her supporters.

Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, vows on her homepage that the new political channel has "no need to please the powers that be."

"Are you tired of the media filters?" Palin asks. "Well, I am."

"I always have been. We're gonna do something about it," she adds, promising, "we'll talk about the issues that the mainstream media won't talk about.

Palin says she will oversee all content on the channel, which is either a good or a bad thing depending on how you view Sarah (to state the obvious).

Former political figure Sarah Palin is calling for President Barack Obama to be impeached in an op-ed quickly seized upon by every wannabe comedian on Twitter.

Palin's scathing indictment on Breitbart, in which she likens Obama to an abusive husband and America to his battered wife, set the Internet ablaze.

Reactions on both sides then threw gasoline on it.

  • You Betcha
  • President Obama in Rome

In her view, it's Obama’s diabolical plan to have Mexicans take jobs from Americans, so as to strengthen his hold on power, and he should be ousted as a result.

While Sarah has plenty of fans who would love to see Obama out of office, an overwhelming majority of Tweets about her comments have been ... well ...

Given her choice of words, questionable grasp of facts and the fact that it's Sarah Palin, her condemnation of the "imperial" Obama sparked widespread ridicule:

Some choice reactions after the jump:

Speaking this weekend at Stand & Fight, a rally held by the National Rifle Association (NRA), Sarah Palin did not disappoint attendees looking for fiery rhetoric.

The 50-year-old former Republican V.P. candidate claimed that President Obama's foreign policy and global vision have merely “coddled adversaries.”

A Palin presidency, she argues, would be quite different ...

“Come on. Enemies, who would utterly annihilate America, they who’d obviously have information on plots, to carry out Jihad,” the ex-Alaska Governor said.

“Oh, but you can’t offend them, can’t make them uncomfortable, not even a smidgen."

"If I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

Waterboarding is a controversial interrogation technique in which water is poured on the face of a detainee, who is immobilized, to induce a fear of drowning.

Sarah Palin showed off her comedic skills on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, with the host taking on the role of Russian president Vladimir Putin.

In a sketch with the former Republican V.P. nominee and Alaska Governor, Putin puts in a phone call to the political firebrand, asking for a key clarification:

"I heard back in 2008, you predicted I would invade Ukraine. Is that true?"

"You betcha, Vlad," says Palin, advising him to pull out of Ukraine.

"Whoa, hey Capt. Buzzkill," the autocrat responds, before moving on to other more important topics, such as March Madness, kids and grizzly bears.

Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC in the wake of the controversy he started when he advocated doing something very unpleasant to Sarah Palin.

Almost three weeks after his shocking on-air trashing of Palin, he finally stepped down from the network. A steep price to pay, yes, but deservedly so.

At issue was Palin comparing America’s Chinese debt to slavery, and her insistence that her claim was not racist. Bashir tried to make light of this, and failed.

He essentially advocated that someone use her mouth as a latrine, but didn't even word it as nicely as that. His resignation statement was appropriately contrite:

"After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday," Bashir said.

Last week, Sarah Palin compared the national debt to slavery, saying both are examples of one being "beholden to a foreign master."

It wasn't the ex-governor's finest hour.

But this controversial statement was quickly overshadowed by Martin Bashir's critique of Palin, as the MSNBC analyst referred to the former Vice Presidential candidate as a "world class idiot" and added that someone should shove feces in her mouth.

On air, Bashir recounted an excerpt from an 18th century plantation owner that mentioned how the man used to deal with unruly slaves, specifically one named Hector who the owner "flogged and "pickled" and then put "shit in his mouth."

Sarah Palin is slamming the U.S. government for using our American war heroes as “political pawns” in the current standoff over the federal budget.

In vintage Palin fashion, however, she is sort of doing the same thing.

Palin led a big rally in Washington to protest the government shutdown that has closed national monuments to visitors, calling such closures "shameful."

The 2008 Republican V.P. nominee feels Congress is using the veterans' plight to play on the sympathies of the American public. Not a bad point.

Political leanings aside, you can at least see why someone would say that ... but Palin was flanked by vets at her attention-grabbing stunt at the WWII memorial.

Pretty much the definition of irony. Good dig at Joe Biden, though.

David Kernell, the former college student who hacked Sarah Palin's email in 2008 looking for politically damaging information, is FINALLY off probation.

Sarah Palin Style

Kernell’s prison term ended in November 2011, and a judge has now ended his post-prison probation, The Commercial Appeal of Memphis, Tenn., reports.

He was scheduled to remain on probation until late 2014, but Judge Thomas Phillips agreed to Kernell’s request to end his probation early.

As NBC affiliate WBIR notes, Kernell’s attorney Wade Davis continues to argue, five years later, that his client only committed a youthful prank.

Sarah Palin says she is considering a run for U.S. Senate in 2014.

Alaska's most high-profile Republican says a lot of things for attention, obviously, but this opportunity seems both within reach and winnable for her.

S 2 the P

The 2008 GOP V.P. candidate has been buzzed about as a challenger for Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, who upset Ted Stevens in the 2008 election.

Sarah Palin told Fox News Tuesday that she's considering a run because so many people have asked her to, but she also said she's not deciding yet.

Sarah Palin does not hold back, even (or especially) when it comes to her own party, which she says keeps "backing away from the planks in our platform."

The 2008 GOP V.P. candidate, who just rejoined Fox News as a paid contributor, says there may come a time where she looks into forming a third party.

"Remember, these are private parties. No one forces us to be enlisted," she said. "I think there will be a lot of us who start saying, 'GOP, if you abandon us, well, we have nowhere else to go."

Palin, who talked of a "Freedom Party" founded on conservative principles and a "libertarian streak," is particularly incensed by the new immigration reform bill.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
