Governor Palin on Fox News Sunday

Governor Palin appeared on Fox News Sunday today with Chris Wallace:


Governor Palin: Alaska’s Position on the Globe (Yes, You Can See Russia!)

Governor Palin, via Facebook:

At last week’s revved-up Anchorage rally for Joe Miller I spoke to the independent, inspired crowd about the need to change Washington so Alaska can finally develop our natural resources to help secure the union. In the discussion, of course, the fact was made that our strategic location on the globe is key to resource development, military security, and transportation and shipping lanes boosting export opportunities, etc. And naturally I included a riff on the fact that you can actually see Russia from Alaska, because apparently only Alaskans know it’s true. Anyway, my good buddies throughout the state continue to send their “pictures of truth,” along with the plea to prove my point and put to rest the lamestream media’s mocking of that point. I promised my buddies I would prove it. So here you go. Some friends emailed photos showing how close Alaska is to Russia. This one shows Russia over the shoulder of a tough Alaskan. We are proud of our strategic location as the air crossroads of the world, our rich natural resources, and our valuable shipping and transportation lanes affecting the commerce of Pacific Rim countries. We need a U.S. Senator who will fight the feds for our right to responsibly develop and contribute to the rest of the U.S., so we can help secure the union economically and physically. We need Joe Miller!

CBS Affiliate Busted on Voicemail Conspiring Against Senate Candidate Joe Miller

The media has been busted conspiring once again. This time the target is Alaska's Joe Miller who is running for Senate. Not too many knew who Miller was before he received the support of Governor Palin, and the lamestream media--along with other PDS sufferers--see a loss for him as a win against the Governor. So once again, the media stops at nothing to promote their agenda. This one is particularly troubling, and heads should roll. Nonetheless, we see an example of this truth: "what's done in the dark will come to the light."

Big Government reports:

The following voice mail message was inadvertently left on the cell phone of Joe Miller campaign spokesperson Randy DeSoto.

The voices are believed to be those of the news director for CBS Anchorage affiliate KTVA, along with assignment editor Nick McDermott, and other reporters, openly discussing creating, if not fabricating, two stories about Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, Joe Miller.

The following is a transcript of a call recorded after CBS Alaska affiliate KTVA called Joe Miller’s Senate campaign spokesperson. The call failed to disconnect properly. It was later authenticated by McDermott, who sent a text to Randy DeSoto stating, “Damn iPhone… I left you a long message. I thought I hung up. Sorry.”

Audio KTVA -

Clearly the reporters were conspiring to set up some type of smear of Joe Miller. With glee, they even cite a recent controversy over an incident involving the Rand Paul campaign, while discussing how they would spread the story via social media after whatever incident they had in mind came off. It also brings to mind another recent episode that ended with Jerry Brown’s California gubernatorial campaign being caught up in controversy when someone from Brown’s camp called Brown’s opponent, Republican Meg Whitman, a “whore.”

This calls into serious question what type of campaign coverage CBS’ KTVA has been providing Alaskans all along, given their reporters’ willingness to conspire against Miller.

This totally makes me sick to my stomach. Can the public no longer count on the media to fairly report the news? That is the media's job, is it not? We saw this type of nonsense here and here when, during the 2008 campaign, "Journolisters" went after Governor Palin after Senator McCain tapped her to be his running mate and she was deemed a threat to their victory plans. We saw it in the media's decision to protect then-candidate Obama from serious scrutiny and downplay his radical associations. We saw it with the conspiracy to depict all Republicans as racists. We see it still--everyday--because the lamestream media has decided that their job is to be the deciding factor in who the public respects and elects. Joe Miller is just their newest target.

May this truth exposed send Alaskans to the polls with a determination to vote for the real Joe Miller, rejecting the Left's sick agenda--so sick they joke and laugh about child molesters. Their behavior is disgusting, and certainly not befitting those who should be honored to represent our First Amendment rights. The term "sick puppies" comes to mind.

Governor Palin Asks: Lisa, are you going to shut down my Facebook page for writing this?

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Governor Palin, via Facebook:

Yesterday, Lisa Murkowski’s hired guns threatened radio host Dan Fagan, and more importantly, the station that airs Fagan’s show, with legal action for allegedly illegal “electioneering.” The station, unlike Murkowski, who is flush with millions of dollars from vested corporate interests, does not have a budget for a legal defense. So it did what any small market station would do when threatened by Beltway lawyers charging $500 to $1000 an hour – they pulled Dan Fagan off the air.

Does all this sound heavy handed? It is. It is an interference with Dan Fagan’s constitutional right to free speech. It is also a shocking indictment against Lisa Murkowski. How low will she go to hold onto power? First, she gets the Division of Elections to change its write-in process – a process that Judge Pfiffner correctly determined had been in place without change for 50 years. She is accepting financial support from federal contractors, an act that is highly questionable and now pending before the FEC. And today, she played her last card. She made it clear that if you disagree with her and encourage others to exercise their civic rights, she’ll take you off the air.

The concept of “electioneering” involves several issues, but typically refers to campaigning at the polls, which is appropriately banned. Under federal law, it can also mean paying for advertising on broadcast media during a federal election cycle, and it requires disclosures if done by groups and corporations. Fagan used satire to mock Murkowski’s write-in efforts and encouraged Alaskan’s to run as write-in candidates. That is not illegal. That is free speech.

Individuals like Dan Fagan have a fundamental right to speak their minds without threats from the incumbent Senator from Alaska. It is hard to find a constitutional right Americans cherish more than the right to free speech. This was a right Joe Miller, as a decorated combat veteran – a tank commander tested in battle, was willing to die to defend. Dan Fagan has not always agreed with me, but I will gladly defend his right to speak freely on his radio show, which he has often used to criticize me. In fact, Fagan has actually used his radio show to attack and insult me, my husband, my children, and my family in just about every way possible. He was especially insulting to my son, who left for a war zone to defend Fagan’s right to attack our family. But when I was his governor, I never would have dreamed of threatening his right to free speech. I support him in this fight because this D.C. Beltway thuggery, as exemplified by Lisa Murkowski’s latest threat, is ruining our country. The powers that be want ordinary Americans to sit down and shut up and let the ruling class ride us right off the debt cliff we’re heading towards with Obama, Pelosi, and Reid steering the nation’s car. We can’t let them. Now is the time to put aside our past differences and stand up to the establishment powers.

This whole episode confirms again why we need to elect Joe Miller. Lisa, you can sue me if you want (you won’t be the first). But I will not be intimidated from speaking my mind. Your intimidation just empowered us liberty-loving Alaskans. Are you really that out of touch?

Karl Rove Hypocritically Criticizes Governor Palin

I'm not going to spend a whole lot of time on Karl Rove because he's so yesterday, it's ridiculous. He's had his underwear in a wad since his establishment Republicans have gotten the boot from people like Christine O'Donnell in Delaware, endorsed by Governor Palin. He's been pouting, whining, and complaining since she shocked the country with her Primary win. Now he's trashing Governor Palin.

London's Telegraph reports:

Karl Rove, the former senior adviser to George W Bush, has cast doubt on Sarah Palin’s viability as a White House candidate, questioning if the American people thought she had the “gravitas” for the “most demanding job in the world”.

“With all due candour, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American calculus of 'that helps me see you in the Oval Office’,” Mr Rove told The Daily Telegraph in an interview.

Rove is a hypocrite, as Josh Painter points out, for after criticizing Governor Palin's series, he applauds President Obama's appearance on the Comedy Channel:
Karl Rove applauded Jon Stewart for his interview of President Barack Obama on The Daily Show, saying that “Stewart was questioning from the left,” but that “it was a serious attempt. I mean, it was actually a pretty good interview.”

Again, Karl Rove is a hypocrite whose real problem is jealousy that Governor Palin's influence has pushed people like him and his establishment buddies to the back burner.

Sheya, writing for C4P, states:
I’m just curious, what does a candidate have to do to "help" Rove see that he or she "fits in the American calculus" of being President? Having multiple states that you call home...does that do it?

Hey, here’s an idea. After Sarah Palin’s Alaska succeeds in showing the American people who Governor Palin really is, contrary to what you and the media have been trying to manipulate them into believing, and her numbers begin climbing upwards, Mitt Romney can do his own series. He can pick one of the following as a title: “Mitt’s Massachusetts,” “Mitt’s Michigan,” "Mitt’s Utah," or "Mitt’s California." Or you know maybe it’ll be easier to keep it simple, as a friend suggested, maybe he just calls it "Mitt Romney's Estates".

With all due respect to Mr. Rove, I think he’s way past his buy-sell date. It’s no longer 2000. Much has happened since the architect couldn’t get his candidate to win the popular vote even when the climate was all in his favor.

Carl Paladino is Looking for a 'Real Leader'

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Carl Paladino, New York gubernatorial candidate, who somehow acquired the "Tea Party Favorite" title, has shown himself once again to be a jerk at best and a complete nutcase at worst. His "angry boy" persona has not served him well up till now, and it's not getting any more promising.

His own self-defeating antics are responsible for the butt whoopin' the numbers show him receiving from Andrew Cuomo. And while I am all for a no-nonsense kind of leader, especially in my state of New York, I would like one that can combine no-nonsense with common sense--at least a hint of it. Not so with Paladino.

Knowing Americans are fed up with the damage political correctness has done, Paladino has tried to sell himself as the antithesis of such, assuming by so doing he is endearing himself to fed up New Yorkers. While refusing to wear the fear the Left tries to impose upon people is admirable, the wannabe governor's words and actions are not quite so admirable. His behavior has been disgraceful at a time when New York could really use a level-headed--albeit strong--public servant. Paladino, however, has too often shot himself in the foot. And again, he has taken a cheap shot at Governor Palin. With Election Day fast approaching, I ordinarily wouldn't ride the Republican candidate's tail too hard, but since he continues to wag it, since he's totally killed his own chances, and especially since he's used his platform to try to take down Governor Palin, he's got this coming.

The Huffington Post reports:

New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino took aim at the prospect of Sarah Palin pursuing a presidential run in 2012 in an interview with the New York Times published on Monday night.

In voicing his opinion on the matter, the Tea Party-backed hopeful reportedly criticized Palin as a "TV personality" in the making who isn't ready to serve the country in the White House.

It's not the first time that Paladino has stated the view in the wake of whispers about plans in the works for Palin to mount a presidential campaign in 2012.

"We need a real leader," explained the Republican candidate to New York-based station WNYC last month. "Not someone who just wants to go and throw a bunch of words around and proverbs and -- I want somebody that is going to be totally responsible. Someone that is a student of that government."

First of all, the media's obsession with asking politicians about Governor Palin and a 2012 run for the presidency is really telling. They have allowed her to rule and reign in their minds, and they are more concerned about what her next step may be than they are with the issues the candidates have espoused. Even though she has set her attention on 2010, they have visions of 2012 dancing in their heads. One must wonder, with all the hoopla surrounding this topic already, what in the world can we expect should she actually decide that she is running in 2012?

Second, with the mess New York state is in, one would think there is a plethora of more pressing issues to discuss with this man who claims to have the goods to move the Empire State forward. Yet somehow his opinion of Governor Palin as a contender for the presidency manages to find its way into the conversation. He should have his hands full. Where does he find the time?

Furthermore, Paladino's decision to take the low road and demean Governor Palin speaks more about his leadership--or lack thereof--than hers. His words concerning her demonstrate a gross lack of insight and awareness of the issues. He presents himself as a maverick who has come to turn things around, one who can buck the establishment and make a difference in New York. But what he illustrates is he's been missing in action or not paying attention. If he were more aware, he would recognize that Governor Palin has both accomplished more and laid more on the line for the sake of tea party conservative principles than anyone else to date. She has given herself completely to these mid-terms elections--making endorsements, donating funds, traveling the nation at an incredibly busy pace, her life even threatened in the process. She has done nothing less than put her efforts, her name, and her reputation on the line so that she can help restore sanity to Washington. All this while some others have taken the safer route--some too cowardly to make the long-shot endorsements, others making endorsements after Governor Palin's candidates have gained ground (but enough about Mitt).

The Governor is responsible for drawing attention to the danger of Obamacare, demanding we "repeal and replace," calling out cap-and-tax, and heralding fiscal responsibility. She has supported our military, taken a stand for common decency at Ground Zero, and stood on the side of border states determined to keep themselves safe despite the federal government's negligence. The work she has done toward energy independence will outlive each of us. She has promoted a culture of life and respect for those with special needs. Governor Palin has almost singlehandedly brought the revival we now see in this country, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

Paladino states that Governor Palin merely throws a bunch of words around. Really? Well, with just one word spoken or written, the Governor has repeatedly raised thousands of dollars to help elect yet another common sense conservative who will serve for the right reasons. And we're supposed to take this guy's opinion of her seriously?

Carl Paladino says he wants someone responsible for president, and apparently Governor Palin doesn't fit the bill in his mind. Is he offering himself up as an exemplar of responsibility? Should she be taking notes from him? Well, let's take a look at his version of responsibility in both word and deed. Then you decide who has more credibility--and sensibility.

Douglas Feiden of the New York Daily News provides some background information on Paladino:

Framing everything in take-no-prisoners terms, Paladino weeks ago predicted his primary win and promised the same against Andrew Cuomo, the odds-on front-runner in the race for the governor's mansion.

"I promise you, I will take down Little Ricky [Rick Lazio], and after that, I will take out Prince Andrew," he said.

Paladino, 63, offered up a healthy dose of threats and invective while dining at Sinatra's, his favorite Italian eatery in his hometown of Buffalo.

"There will be blood on the floor," he said, washing down pork braciola with red wine.

"It won't be pretty, it won't be clean, but I will take them down."

Subtle as a pit bull, but with a fast smile and a mischievous glint in his eye, Paladino will vilify any foe and blurt out anything that comes to mind.

He told building contractors in Ronkonkoma that Gov. Paterson was "a wimp . . . really, he's pathetic." Former Gov. George Pataki? He's a "degenerate idiot."

Tough campaigning is a part of running for office, but Paladino's words work to show him as a loose cannon more prone to insults, profanity, and threats than anything else--and it's simply not working for him. In fact, it's worked against him and killed his chances. Paladino's track record shows his brand of responsibility to involve having no language filter, making serious personal allegations without sufficient evidence, and being commitment challenged.

In addition, he almost ruined his Primary chances when disgustingly racist, sexist, and pornographic emails he forwarded were leaked. His defense? He simply stated that he's not politically correct, that the emails were "just humor." The problem is New York state--and the state New York is in--are no laughing matters, and he has hurt the efforts to turn things around.

If Carl Paladino holds himself up as the example of a "real leader," if he is the standard by which leadership is measured, thank God Governor Palin doesn't fit his mold. Why in the world would anyone ask him to validate someone else's leadership credentials, especially someone with the success Governor Palin has enjoyed? It just shows, again, the state of the lamestream media.

Carl Paladino, who fancies himself a no-nonsense voice, needs to add some common sense to his resume'. Until then, he might just want to say nothing at all. Besides, instead of assessing Governor Palin's ability to handle the presidency in 2012, shouldn't he be spending all his energy between now and next Tuesday finding a way out of the hole he's dug for himself in New York?

Governor Palin: Rendezvous with Destiny

Governor Palin via Facebook:

Today is the 46th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s famous speech, “A Time for Choosing.”

The thing that struck me as I watched it again was how relevant its message still is for today’s America. Just as in 1964, we have a president who says “we must accept a greater government activity in the affairs of the people.” And just as then, we hear the voices of those on the left who claim the profit motive has become “outdated” and the Constitution “outmoded.” Back then liberals aimed to build a Great Society in which the state looked after us “from the cradle to the grave.” Today’s “fundamental transformation” doesn’t have a similarly catchy name, but its aims are no different from those of Johnson’s central planners.

And so once again we face an election in which the fundamental issue is “whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.”

Reagan believed that in the end, Americans would always choose liberty over tyranny. He called it our “destiny,” our American birth right. Well, this coming Tuesday, you and I have another rendezvous with destiny. America, let’s go and win one for the Gipper.

Bristol Rocks on DWTS, Acknowledges Voter Support; Updated with Results

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

NOTE: Don't read the update at the bottom if DWTS has not yet aired where you live and you don't want the results now.

Bristol Palin was fabulous on Dancing with the Stars last night. Not only was her technique sound, but she came with great fire--and the judges loved it!

Deborah Starr Seibel reports:

But what everyone in the audience was talking about was the surprisingly strong showing by Bristol Palin, who managed to rack up 23 points for her graceful tango before coming in second-to-last for the marathon. Nevertheless, she wowed with a newfound confidence on the dance floor.

"I realized that if I didn't go all out, I was gonna go home," said Palin, who is known to be painfully shy. "So I tried my best to go all out." The 20-year-old single mom somehow managed to survive dancing in a disastrous monkey costume last week, to say nothing of forgetting her steps.

That survival has led to much speculation that the Tea Party may be warming up their voting fingers in preparation for next week's election by voting for Republican Sarah Palin's daughter. Does Bristol think that's what's going on? "I'm sure they're backing us up," she said. "It's just my mom's supporters."

Added her partner, pro Mark Ballas, "I have no idea what the Tea Party is. But I'm from England and I like tea. So, whether it's a tea party, a coffee party, or any other beverage party — as long as it's non-alcoholic — we appreciate any support we can get."

Of course we're backing her up! Every vote counts--and we're exercising our right! Tonight we'll find out what next week holds for Bristol and Mark.

Dance Bristol Dance!

UPDATED: Bristol and Mark are on to next week! The judges requested they dance again tonight; their performance was even better than last night!


Governor Palin: Sprint to the Finish with More Good Candidates

Governor Palin via Facebook:

With just eight days left before Election Day, it’s time to sprint through the finish line. Here are more commonsense conservative candidates who are determined to get our country back on track.

Dick Muri for Washington’s 9th Congressional District

I met Dick Muri recently and am proud to endorse his campaign for Congress. Dick is a proven leader. He’s a devoted member of his community and a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel who first earned his navigator wings in 1976. Dick will be an fresh, independent voice in Congress, unlike his opponent who votes with Speaker Pelosi and other Democrat leaders over 96% of the time. Please join me in supporting Dick Muri by visiting his website at and following him on Facebook and Twitter.

Rob Steele for Michigan 15th Congressional District

Dr. Rob Steele is challenging the longest-serving member of the House, and he needs your help. Dr. Steele is right on the issues – he’s committed to reduced spending, lower taxes, and commonsense Constitutional principles; and he’s right for Michigan – an NRA-member and avid sportsman, father, and community leader. After 55 years, it’s time for new leadership for Michigan. Please visit Dr. Steele’s website at and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

Ilario Pantano for North Carolina’s 7th Congressional District

Ilario Pantano is another dedicated patriot running for Congress this year. Ilario first swore an oath to defend the Constitution as a 17-year-old Marine. Today, he needs your help to bring common sense back to Washington. The Republicans have carried this congressional district in the last three presidential elections (including ’08), but the current representative votes with Pelosi and the Democrats 90% of the time. We can win this seat and send a decorated Marine to Congress who will be a strong voice for veterans and active-duty military. Please visit Ilario Pantano’s website at and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

Chuck Wilkerson for California’s 30th Congressional District

I’m proud to endorse another Marine, Chuck Wilkerson in California. Chuck is making his first run for public office, and he’s doing it for all the right reasons. He’ll fight to keep taxes low and control spending, and he’ll be another strong voice for veterans. His opponent is the 35-year incumbent and cap-and-tax crusader Henry Waxman. Please visit Chuck Wilkerson’s website at and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

November 2nd is just around the corner. Let’s get behind these good candidates.

- Sarah Palin

Governor Palin: Lisa’s Gall vs. Miller’s Honor

Governor Palin calls out Lisa Murkowski via Facebook:

I have never seen a candidate stoop as low as was seen last night in Alaska’s senatorial debate.

Alaska’s Joe Miller is facing a tough three-way race for U.S. Senate. Though Joe decisively defeated the incumbent Senator in the primary, and though she conceded the race to him, she reneged on her primary vow to not contest the will of the people. She is now running a write-in campaign bankrolled by Beltway special interests.

I’ve seen some pretty ugly campaigning, and what they’re throwing at Joe right now is nasty. Joe’s opponents can’t run on the issues because they’re wrong on them – whether it’s repealing and de-funding Obamacare, fighting against cap-and-tax, protecting our borders, or pushing hard for responsible resource development. They can’t win in a fair fight on the issues, so they sling mud.

We saw all of this play out in the Alaska senatorial debate yesterday. (Watch the video of the debate here.) Joe took a bold stance for Alaska’s future. He called out the sitting Senator’s involvement in racking up the massive debt burden on our children and grandchildren, as well as her plan to barter over the destructive job-killing cap-and-tax legislation. As Joe said, we should focus on trading “earmarks for ANWR, not cap and trade for ANWR.”

The sitting Senator also came out against Arizona’s right to protect its borders. She called for us to “enforce the laws that are currently on the books,” but didn’t seem to understand that that is precisely what Arizona is trying to do to protect itself because the federal government refuses to enforce our laws. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by her lackadaisical attitude to border security when we consider that she has repeatedly voted against funding a border fence and voted in favor of amnesty.

But perhaps the most shocking part of all in this debate was when the incumbent Senator used Joe Miller’s distinguished military service as a means to attack him. Joe Miller graduated from West Point, fought in Desert Storm, and was awarded the Bronze Star for his service to our country. I find it astonishing that a sitting U.S. Senator from Alaska would challenge the honor of a decorated combat veteran. Is it any wonder the audience later booed her when she again challenged Joe Miller’s honor? Please watch the video of this exchange here.

We need to send a message that we’re not going to stand for this arrogant sense of entitlement and business-as-usual Beltway corruption. Joe needs our help to fight back against the influx of special interest money. Please join me in donating any amount you can spare to Joe’s campaign by clicking here. He can lead once he gets to D.C., but he’ll need our help to get to there.

Bristol Palin: Walking for Change

Bristol Palin, via Facebook:

Suicide is one of the most devastating things that can happen in a family. While losing a loved one is tragic, losing a loved one due to suicide is even more painful. That is why I was proud to support Mark Ballas and his mom, Shirley Ballas, at the Out of the Darkness Community Walk in Santa Monica yesterday.

Out of the Darkness sponsors healthy, positive community walks to raise funds and awareness for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Proceeds from the walks benefit the AFSP in many ways including: research, advocacy, outreach and education. I urge you to learn more about Out of the Darkness Community Walks, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

J.D. Gordon: Obama Smarter than Palin? Don't Believe the Hype

When Barack Obama stepped on the scene, those who believed the hype praised him for his intellect, his IQ, and how his massive brain power was going to lead America somewhere we had never been before. I've yet to see the evidence of this uncommon intelligence he supposedly possesses, but that's what the Kool Aid drinkers told us. On the contrary, Governor Palin was depicted as unread and unintelligent, a lie as large as the state from which she hails. J.D. Gordon of The Washington Times offers this:

While most pundits and late-night comedians place President Obama far ahead of Sarah Palin in terms of intellect, perhaps Public Enemy's best-known hit - "Don't Believe the Hype" - is a fitting tribute to this myth.

Propped up by the mainstream media as the intellectual version of Superman, Mr. Obama with his eloquent, if not robotic, public appearances has fed into the perception that he is one of the most brilliant people in world history - a political Albert Einstein, worthy of the Nobel Prize.

Mrs. Palin meanwhile, has been mercilessly attacked by most in the media and chronically lampooned on late-night TV to the point where some believe she said things that actually were said by comedians.


In fact, given Mr. Obama's track record in comparing his 2008 presidential campaign to the results of his presidency thus far and contrasting it with Mrs. Palin's steadfast leadership of the Tea Party movement, which is changing the political landscape of the country, I would argue that she is actually smarter than Mr. Obama.

First, Mrs. Palin understands that lofty campaign promises don't equate to good governance. Mr. Obama's presidential campaign, centered around "hope and change," has led to runaway spending in a roughly $800 billion stimulus bill, dramatically increased unemployment to roughly 10 percent - twice the rate of George W. Bush's administration - and ushered in Obamacare, which the majority of Americans oppose.

Mr. Obama's No. 1 priority, closing the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, as he mandated within hours of being sworn into office, went nowhere, as did outreach to Iran and now the Taliban fighting our troops in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, unilateral missile-defense cuts and world tours of apologies, complete with bowing to foreign leaders, have made the country less safe.

Given such factors, it should not be surprising that Mr. Obama's approval rating has plummeted from 68 percent at inauguration to a mere 44 percent less than 2 years later. Mrs. Palin campaigned in 2008 for balancing the budget, creating jobs, promoting energy independence and supporting the troops, issues that have remained crucial over the past two years.

Unlike Mr. Obama, Mrs. Palin can relate to Main Street. While the Obama family jetted to Martha's Vineyard, Maine and the Spanish Mediterranean coast last summer alone, the Palins have been connecting with the American public throughout the United States in dozens of speaking venues and other appearances, including "Dancing With the Stars." In a recent California speech, Mrs. Palin pointed to the plight of Central Valley farmers who can't get water for their crops while 37,000 jobs have been lost in the process - all to save a 2-inch fish (the delta smelt) which was rescued through an environmentalist lawsuit. "In Alaska, we call a 2-inch fish bait," she said wryly.

Last but not least, mainstream media and late night-comedy portrayals are deeply flawed when it comes to Mrs. Palin. It is easy to look smart when surrounded by teleprompters like Mr. Obama. In those rare instances when Mr. Obama strays from the script, we end up with comments like "the Cambridge police acted stupidly" that precipitated the infamous White House beer summit with his friend professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. of Harvard and Cambridge, Mass., Police Sgt. James Crowley. In contrast, Mrs. Palin relies heavily on speech notes during her public appearances and often speaks extemporaneously. Her folksy ways and plainspoken language are simply part of her charm and a reflection of her genuine character, not any indication of her intellectual capacity.


Though the mainstream media and comedians can say what they will, Americans will have their say at the ballot box. When voters scratch below the surface of myths that have been constructed carefully around Mr. Obama and Mrs. Palin and compare the myths to the track records over the past two years, they just might reconsider who is smarter.

Multiple Sources Debunk Politico's Palin Hit Piece

Friday, October 22, 2010

There's something to be said for learning from the mistakes of others. Yet when it comes to Governor Palin, people can't seem to do that. After Michael Joseph Gross's Vanity Fair article that brought shame on him when, one after another, real sources debunked his anonymous sources, Jonathan Martin of Politico puts himself in the same boat with his hit piece.

His article, "Sarah Palin is wreaking havoc on the campaign trail, GOP sources say" makes all types of claims about the Governor, accusing her of being difficult to work with, unaccommodating, and totally unorganized--rude and incompetent basically. He cites "sources" to substantiate his claims. His hit piece has come crashing down on his head, and a retraction and apology are in order. Many are calling for just that.

He claims, for example, that she has rudely backed out of interviews with Mark Levin and Glenn Beck. Lies! In fact, Beck calls it an "out and out lie." Outraged, here's what he said about this "trash":

Mark Levin calls the piece "a flat out lie" and says "Sarah Palin never backed out of any interview with me." Listen:

Governor Palin responded this way:
Johnny, Johnny, Johnny...ya just made big mistake lying about Levin, Beck, Rush...U can lie about me, but taking on the Big Guns? Not smart

The hit piece also states that Governor Palin snubbed the Grassley and King campaigns in Iowa. Lies! My fellow blogger and truth seeker, Shane Vander Hart, contacted them himself. This is what Shane wrote (emphasis added):

Eric Woolson, spokesperson for Senator Chuck Grassley’s campaign, for the record said, that the anonymous source “does not represent the Senator’s views.” So evidently Senator Grassley was not displeased with any interaction they had with the Palin camp.


I have yet to contact the Iowa GOP and will follow-up, but I did talk with Jeff King with Congressman King’s campaign he said that they “didn’t have any inkling that we’d get her for a rally. We would love to have her though.” He said they did not expect that it would work out. He said nobody from their campaign talked with Martin and they certainly don’t have any complaints about Palin.

Click here to read Shane Vander Hart's full article, which Governor Palin retweeted yesterday.

Not only is Jonathan Martin's no-name sources lying, even the named sources debunk his claims.

Various other sources, including Big Journalism, also demand a retraction or blast this piece of crap that Politico calls journalism. C4P even received the following from Charlie Davis, CEO of the Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC). It's an email they sent to Martin himself:

Hey Jonathan,

Hope you're doing well. Just read your article on Palin and wanted to add my two cents. (this wasn't requested by anybody and feel free to quote me if you'd like)

As you know the 2010 SRLC was the largest Republican Leadership Conference in 30 years, with more speakers, more press and more attendees than ever before. Governor Palin's staff was incredibly easy to deal with and very professional.

I interacted with every major GOP personality in the country leading up to the conference and can tell you first hand that the only thing different about Governor Palin was the intensity of the interest from the attendees, sponsors and even other speakers.

She's easily the most requested surrogate our party has and it's a shame that Republicans would rather gripe that they can't get more of her time instead of being appreciative of everything that she does do.

Charlie Davis
President and CEO
2010 Southern Republican Leadership Conference

Today, Governor Palin discussed the issue with Glenn Beck on his radio show. Her modus operandi is to call it as she sees it, so she called Martin a "punk."

Retrieved from C4P, who retrieved it from The Right Scoop, here you go:

This post is just a buffet of information gathered from my colleagues who care about truth and honesty, who are committed to holding people accountable for what they say and do. The behavior of some who fancy themselves professionals is deplorable. More than that, it's just plain stupid. These people simply never learn their lesson, nor do they learn from those who have tried the same tactics and failed--over and over again. Palin Derangement Syndrome, with its accompanying fear and desperation, have disabled all their reasoning capabilities.

Those of you who are not yet convinced that there is an all-out determination to destroy Governor Palin, no matter what, please open your eyes. If you really care about truth, embrace it, and work to expose and destroy its enemies everywhere they surface. Governor Palin would be the first to tell you that the words she speaks and the actions she exemplifies should be evaluated as others' are. However, the lies, the slander, and the attacks on her character are beyond the pale. What her character assassins are not willing to accept, however, is that none of it will cause her to wander off message, cower in fear, or retreat. It only fires her up even more--and fires up those of us who stand in her corner.

Onward and upward...

Governor Palin's Surprise Stop at Phoenix Tea Party Express Rally; Updates - Footage of Me Working Book Tour; New Video

Governor Palin made a surprise stop at the Tea Party Express Rally in Phoenix today and briefly addressed the crowd--no teleprompter, no notes, just common sense.

(h/t Kelsey, courtesy of PalinTV)

UPDATE 1: Video posted originally was replaced with the one above which has much better quality and includes Governor Palin answering some questions at the end.

UPDATE 2: Below is Fox 10 News coverage when they got word that Governor Palin was unexpectedly stopping by the Tea Party Rally. I decided to post this when at 1:19 into the video, I found myself in the footage of the Going Rogue book tour working at the table with the Governor. Enjoy.


Governor Palin Shows Juan Williams More Graciousness Than He Ever Showed Her

Thursday, October 21, 2010

NPR fired Juan Williams Wednesday night for expressing his nervousness when on a plane with people who choose to identify themselves first as Muslims. For this he gets fired. This is what the Left does to people who don't follow their agenda: silence them by any means necessary. Juan Williams was speaking for himself. Truth be told, he simply voiced a feeling that many Americans share. It's called being honest.

The hypocrisy of the Left is disgusting. MSNBC, for example, makes reprehensible comments about conservatives, particularly Governor Palin and tea party Americans, and people on their side of the aisle couldn't care less. Christians and their values are mocked by the Left daily, and nothing is said. We all know if Juan Williams had said Christians make him nervous, or tea partiers are dangerous, he would have been applauded rather than fired. But voicing his own nervousness when encountering Muslims on a plane gets him fired. That's Liberals for you--and that's the hypocrisy to which they are married. NPR is more desirous of political correctness than truth from their employees, having no respect, apparently, for First Amendment rights.

I'm no fan of Juan Williams, and I take umbrage at the disrespectful, sexist comments he's made about Governor Palin (see video), but NPR was out of line to fire him. Where were they when given the opportunity to denounce his sexist comments about the Governor? This firing is just further evidence of the Left's glaring hypocrisy and intolerance for anything that opposes their agenda. His association with Fox News has long been a thorn in their side, and his recent comments when speaking to Bill O'Reilly, gave them the excuse they needed to send him packing. This is the real deal behind all this. NPR, in bed with George Soros and receiving tax-payer dollars, clearly has an agenda. Like all Liberals, NPR wants to silence conservative media, like Fox News, because they have no respect for free speech whatsoever. More disturbing, this love affair the Left has cultivated with political correctness is going to lead us down a most dangerous road if unchecked.

Governor Palin, modeling true graciousness and class, has come out in support of Williams in spite of how he has treated her. She showed her support on Twitter several times today. Here are a few of those tweets:

1. NPR defends 1st Amendment Right, but will fire u if u exercise it. Juan Williams: u got taste of Left's hypocrisy,they screwed up firing you

2. Juan Williams: Going Rogue. NPR should receive NO fed tax dollars if it operates as intolerant, private radio. Mr. President, what say you?

3. NPR & LSM: you're shocked at public outrage over your censorship of Juan? This is what happens when our Constitution starts shaking her fist

Governor Palin followed up her many tweets with a Facebook note, joining others who are calling for the defunding of NPR:

At a time when our country is dangerously in debt and looking for areas of federal spending to cut, I think we’ve found a good candidate for defunding. National Public Radio is a public institution that directly or indirectly exists because the taxpayers fund it. And what do we, the taxpayers, get for this? We get to witness Juan Williams being fired from NPR for merely speaking frankly about the very real threat this country faces from radical Islam.


I don’t expect Juan Williams to support me (he’s said some tough things about me in the past) – but I will always support his right and the right of all Americans to speak honestly about the threats this country faces. And for Juan, speaking honestly about these issues isn’t just his right, it’s his job. Up until yesterday, he was doing that job at NPR. Firing him is their loss.

If NPR is unable to tolerate an honest debate about an issue as important as Islamic terrorism, then it’s time for “National Public Radio” to become “National Private Radio.” It’s time for Congress to defund this organization.

Read Governor Palin's full Facebook note here.

Why is this far-Left radio network being funded by our tax-payer dollars anyway? Looks like it's time for a change, and NPR has just dug itself a hole they may not be able to get out of. I hope calling attention to themselves simply because they hate Juan Williams' connection to Fox News was worth it because people are not going to let this go. NPR may have just cost itself some federal dollars. And to that, I say, "Well, it's about time."

I repeat: I'm not a fan of Juan Williams. I am a fan of truth, however. The truth is this: once again, the Left displays its intolerance, hypocrisy, and utter depravity. And once again, Governor Palin extends graciousness to one who has been none too gracious toward her.


Governor Palin Serves Up Jackass for Dinner

Why do people on the Left do this to themselves over and over? Why must they allow their Palin Derangement Syndrome to expose their own weaknesses while trying to find weaknesses in Governor Palin? Wouldn't it be better--less embarrassing--to throw in the towel now before they look even more petty and yes, more stupid?

I am a couple days late weighing in on this due to my crazy schedule lately. However, I couldn't let it pass without adding my two cents to the mix.

While addressing the Tea Party Express Rally in Reno earlier this week, Governor Palin spoke about not getting overly excited about the November elections just yet. There's still work to be done, the Governor stated, and warned people not to "party like it's 1773."

Sitting around waiting for something over which to yell, "Gotcha!" to Governor Palin--as the Left usually does--this was their moment. She doesn't know history! 1773? Ha! They flew into action to expose a perceived lack of knowledge on her part.

The problem is they are the ones lacking knowledge. Suffice it to say, however, now they've been schooled--by the one they call stupid. Now isn't that...ironic?

1773 is the year of the original Boston Tea Party, a fact clearly foreign to the Left. So guess who took to Twitter to make a fool of themselves: PBS's Gwen Ifill and Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos. Several other PDS sufferers joined in the giddiness and retweeted the two. The Huffington Post--the Huff and Puff, as I like to call them for all the hot air they blow--actually reprinted Moulitsas' tweet.

Here are the screen shots:

No, not "so smart," Markos. Just smart enough to make you look stupid.

Noel Sheppard points out:

Of course, all these geniuses needed to do was a simple Google search of "historical events of 1773." The first response would have helped them identify that the Boston Tea Party happened on December 16th of that year.

I guess it's easier for arrogant members of the Left to just ridicule rather than research. Certainly, that's not at all surprising from the perpetually factually-challenged Moulitsas.

Governor Palin eventually weighed in herself, retweeting Michelle Malkin after Gwen Ifill refused to own up to her PDS-inspired gaffe:

Gwen Ifill, et al... Really? Silly. RT @michellemalkin: 'Stand down,' says @pbsgwen re. her Palin bashing. Own up, dear.

It must be tough to be a bitter Liberal frightened by the "insignificant" Sarah Palin. I almost feel sorry for them--almost. These people fall for it every single time. What am I saying? Am I actually suggesting Governor Palin knew exactly what would happen when she threw 1773 out there? You betcha! Josh Painter says it best:

We're willing to bet that when Sarah's dad taught her how to fish, hunt and trap, little did he realize that some day it would have a political payoff.

Donkey--or shall we say jackass--for dinner, anyone?

Governor Palin Tells NPR Get it Right or Get Lost

Governor Palin defends Juan Williams and blasts NPR. Via Facebook:

Juan Williams: Going Rogue

At a time when our country is dangerously in debt and looking for areas of federal spending to cut, I think we’ve found a good candidate for defunding. National Public Radio is a public institution that directly or indirectly exists because the taxpayers fund it. And what do we, the taxpayers, get for this? We get to witness Juan Williams being fired from NPR for merely speaking frankly about the very real threat this country faces from radical Islam.

We have to have an honest discussion about the jihadist threat. Are we not allowed to say that Muslim terrorists have killed thousands of Americans and continue to plot the deaths of thousands more? Are we not allowed to say that there are Muslim states that aid and abet these fanatics? Are we not allowed to even debate the role that radical Islam plays in inciting this violence?

I don’t expect Juan Williams to support me (he’s said some tough things about me in the past) – but I will always support his right and the right of all Americans to speak honestly about the threats this country faces. And for Juan, speaking honestly about these issues isn’t just his right, it’s his job. Up until yesterday, he was doing that job at NPR. Firing him is their loss.

If NPR is unable to tolerate an honest debate about an issue as important as Islamic terrorism, then it’s time for “National Public Radio” to become “National Private Radio.” It’s time for Congress to defund this organization.

NPR says its mission is “to create a more informed public,” but by stifling debate on these issues, NPR is doing exactly the opposite. President Obama should make clear his commitment to free and honest discussion of the jihadist threat in our public debates – and Congress should make clear that unless NPR provides that public service, not one more dime.

Mr. President, what say you?

Governor Palin: Drill, Baby, Drill and Mine, Baby, Mine; Serious Consequences

Via Facebook, Governor Palin drops more common sense on us:

Although the Left chooses to mock the mantra of “drill, baby, drill,” and they ignorantly argue against the facts pertaining to the need for America to responsibly develop her domestic supply of natural resources, surely they can’t argue the national security implications of relying on foreign countries to extract supplies that America desperately needs for industry, jobs, and security. Some of the countries we’re now reliant upon and will soon be beholden to can easily use energy and mineral supplies as a weapon against us.

The solution? Simply, please don’t elect politicians who cast votes that lock up our plentiful supplies. Please consider the case of China bending us over a barrel as it develops rare earth minerals while we ban mining. Please consider Venezuela and Russia and Saudi Arabia and Brazil (as we subsidize their off-shore drilling) and all other energy-producing countries as the Left locks up ANWR, NPR-A, and other American lands that are teeming with our own needed energy supplies.

“Drill, baby, drill and mine, baby, mine.” Yep, the mantra may be mocked by the Democrats, but serious consequences ensue when we let the Left make us rely on foreign countries to feed us energy. The joke is on us if they win.

Please see this article by David Case on the important issue of China and rare earths.

Governor Palin: More Great Candidates to Support this November

Via Facebook:

Here are some more great commonsense candidates whose races we need to support as we approach November 2nd.

Butch Otter for Governor of Idaho

As a proud Vandal grad who was born in Idaho and still has plenty of Idaho family roots, I'm honored to endorse Butch Otter for governor of the Gem State. Whether serving in Congress or the Governor’s office, Butch has been a voice for commonsense conservatism. He’s been a strong advocate for fiscal discipline and energy independence. As Governor of Alaska, it was a pleasure working with Butch as both our states bucked a growing federal government power grab in disregard of the Tenth Amendment. Butch has served Idaho with distinction as Governor, and Idaho can’t go wrong re-electing him this November. Please visit his website at and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

Sean Bielat for Massachusetts’ 4th Congressional District

Remember what it was like in January 2010 when Massachusetts shocked the political world? It’s that time again. Sean Beilat is running against a Democrat incumbent who has been in government office for over 30 years. Sean is a businessman, Marine veteran, and young father, and he is running against an ethically-challenged liberal icon who opposed reform of Fannie & Freddie before the meltdown. That’s right, Sean Bielat is running against Barney Frank, and he needs your help to win. Please visit Sean’s website at and follow him on Twitter.

Stephen Fincher for Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District

Stephen Fincher is not a politician. He’s a farmer, business man, gospel singer, and a true patriot from Frog Jump (pop. 400) in West Tennessee. He’s a conservative committed to limited government, lower taxes, and job creation. Please visit Stephen’s website at and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

Randy Hultgren for Illinois’ 14th Congressional District

Want to send a message about President Obama’s out-of-touch agenda? Let’s win some seats in his backyard. As an accomplished businessman and father of four, Randy Hultgren is committed to fighting for lower taxes and constitutional principles to get our country back on track. We can count on Randy to stand up for Illinois families and bring real accountability to Washington. Please visit Randy’s website at and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

November is just around the corner!

Bristol Moves on to Week 6; Updated

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Don't tell me every vote doesn't count! Bristol and her partner, Mark, have survived week 5 of Dancing with the Stars after the judges gave them the lowest scores of the night, a total of 18. Bristol's supporters, exercising every one of their votes, should take heart that their efforts were not in vain. Our votes, combined with Bristol's hard work and dedication, are sending her on to the next round.

Team Ballin expressed both delight and surprise at the announcement that their performance of the Jive was not their last. They thanked the voters and are excited to come back and dance some more next week.

We're all very much engaged in the current political climate of our nation. We have Governor Palin's back as she addresses the important issues that are before us, and we enjoy seeing the positive impact she's having on America leading into these mid-term elections. Lately, we've gotten to see another Palin in action. Isn't it a most-enjoyable diversion to tune in each week and join the Palin family in cheering Bristol on to victory?

Click here to follow Bristol on Facebook.

UPDATE: Governor Palin tweeted after Florence Henderson was voted off last night:

Florence Henderson... what a lovely lady! What a story! She reflects grace, beauty, energy, inspiration. America loves you, Florence.

Both Bristol and Florence have talked about how close they got during their time together on the show.


Governor Palin: Energy Producing and Manufacturing States Must Send Job Creators to D.C.

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Governor Palin, via Facebook:

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I think cap-and-tax could potentially be more disastrous to our economy than Obamacare because it would devastate our businesses and cripple our energy and industrial sectors. Cap-and-tax would put the nail in the coffin for our manufacturing jobs and our resource development. That’s why it’s crucial we fight any and all efforts by the Obama administration to push for it. The only sure way to thwart this legislation in Congress is to send commonsense conservatives to D.C. After all, there were many so-called “moderate” Democrats who claimed to be against a European-style socialized health care takeover, and yet when push came to shove they voted in favor of Obamacare. We can’t trust them to consistently vote for fiscal sanity when their party leadership (who they voted for, though they now conveniently pretend they’ve never heard of Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid!) pulls them in the opposite direction.

Senate races in particular have national significance when it comes to legislation like cap-and-tax. Our Senate is the most prestigious deliberative body in the world. One vote there has consequences extending far beyond that chamber. That’s why “rust belt” and energy producing states must get behind good candidates like John Raese in West Virginia, Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Joe Miller in Alaska, Rand Paul in Kentucky, Sharron Angle in Nevada, John Boozman in Arkansas, and Carly Fiorina in California. Your jobs depend on their ability to hold the line against job-killing legislation.

People in these states have a clear choice on November 2nd. They can vote for jobs or vote for unemployment.

Fox News Interviews Governor Palin at Reno Tea Party

Governor Palin spoke to Fox News at the Tea Party Rally in Reno. She called out the failed policies of the Obama administration and the need to "Fire Pelosi and retire Reid." Reiterating that the tea party movement is not about a political party but about common sense, time-tested solutions, she warned that the GOP had better stand on the side of "we, the people." She did add that she sees them embracing that message.

When asked about the attacks on tea party Americans and conservative women, the Governor talked at length about the slander, the false claims that they are inciting violence, allegations of racism, and the disdain some hold for women who manage to smile, be happy, love America, and yet are aggressive in their messaging. She was even asked about the suggestion that she is "Queen of the mean girls." Of course, the Governor continued to smile and remain focused on the issues at hand. Her message to us is to "keep the faith" in spite of all the opposition--and look forward to November 2nd.

With all that was discussed in the interview, perhaps my favorite part was this lighter sentiment Governor Palin expressed:

May we always be happy, and may our enemies know it.

Governor Palin's Tea Party Express Speech and CNN Interview in Reno

Today, Governor Palin spoke at the Tea Party Express Rally in Reno, Nevada:

Below is the video of Governor Palin speaking to CNN after the rally. Here she talks about the tea party's message of limited government, Constitutional principles, the planks of the GOP, and not allowing her critics to shift her focus. She states emphatically that there is room in the Republican party for common sense moderates and independents who want to stand on the side of time-tested truths.

Ian Lazaran makes a great point:

I thought the narrative was that she was scared to talk to anyone who wasn't a conservative or didn't work for Fox News. How is it then that she's talking to Shannon Travis from CNN?

Governor Palin Celebrates Alaska Day and Bristol's Birthday

Via Facebook:

On this day in 1867, the American flag flew for the first time over Fort Sitka as Russia officially transferred authority over the Territory of Alaska to the United States of America. What was once derided as “Seward’s Folly” has since proven to be one of the best deals in history. As the history of Alaska continues to be written, our proud state is coming into its own. Our motto, “North to the Future,” inspires the nation to look to the Last Frontier for her abundant natural resources. This state, purchased for two cents an acre by William Seward, will help lead the nation towards energy independence. Happy Alaska Day!

- Sarah Palin

P.S. And a very happy birthday to Bristol too!


Reno Tea Party Express Live Stream; Updated

I received an email yesterday from, which reads in part (initial emphasis added):

Fellow Patriots,

The Tea Party Express kicks off at 10:00 AM in Reno, Nevada, on Monday, October 18th. Joining the kick-off party will be Sarah Palin, among many other special guests. (Many thanks to!) will provide a LIVE broadcast of the entire event. You can watch the live broadcast via's special page set up at's Ron Futrell will be anchoring much of the live broadcast for the entire Tea Party Express tour, so please be sure to tune in often and share the link with everyone you know!

Will this tour make a difference?

In 2008, Barack Obama set out on a whirlwind tour aimed at bringing energy into the ground game for the purpose of getting voters out and to the polls. This final Tea Party Express will do the same for the free-market movement.

We strongly encourage all activists to attend a rally where possible, watch the rallies online where not, and do everything possible to energize friends and family to get out and vote on November 2nd.

This is the final leg in battle we've all been a part of for the past year and a half. What we do in the next few weeks will determine the survival of our Liberty.

You may also watch the live stream below or go to if you have trouble accessing it otherwise.

Remember, this will begin 10:00 AM Reno time, which is 1:00 PM Eastern. Be sure to watch if you're available. The time to make a difference is now!

UPDATE: Live stream embed has now been removed. I will post Governor Palin's speech shortly.


Happy Birthday, Bristol Palin

Happy Birthday, Bristol Palin!

In her short 20 years of life, Bristol has a wide-range of experiences from which to draw. As the daughter of Governor Sarah Palin, she has grown up in the spotlight in her home state of Alaska, she's the mom of a beautiful boy, she's using what she's learned to promote abstinence and a culture of life, and God has "turned mourning into dancing" in her life--literally.

Bristol's 20th birthday will find her performing in week 5 of Dancing with the Stars, hopefully doing an incredible jive with her partner, Mark Ballas--and having a blast at the same time. Tune in tonight, and you can say "Happy Birthday" to Bristol by using all your votes to send her on to next week.

You can follow Bristol on Facebook by clicking here.

Happy Birthday once again, Bristol Palin. God bless you.


Sarah Palin's Alaska: Separating Sourdoughs from Cheechakos

Sunday, October 17, 2010

Thanks to PalinTV, you can check out this sneak peek of Sarah Palin's Alaska which will premiere on TLC November 14th. Having myself spent a month in Alaska during the summer of 2009, I recommend the series and am sure it will be enjoyable and educational for all. I've been to such places as Africa and Guatemala, and Alaska ranks right up there in depth of experience for me. What a beautiful, majestic place; no wonder they call it God's Country.

As the clip below shows, while fishing, the Palin family encountered some mama grizzlies--and they managed to remain calm! I suppose that's what separates sourdoughs from cheechakos!

Don't miss Sarah Palin's Alaska.

The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin

Below is the video of a Sean Hannity segment, retrieved from PalinTV. Stephen Mansfield was a guest on the television show to discuss The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin, the new book he and David A. Holland co-authored.

The interview was of special interest to me because I'm currently reading the book and am fascincated by the things the authors learned through exclusive access to Governor Palin's parents, siblings, friends, and pastors who have all played a role in who she is.

The book breaks down the things that have most influenced Governor Palin's worldview, thus shaping the person we see today. The fact is her perspectives in life cannot be separated from the faith and values she holds most dear and, Mansfield and Holland conclude, these originated mostly from four truths:

1. Family has fashioned her soul.
2. Alaska and the idea of the state are primary for Palin.
3. Palin has been influenced by the Eskimo view of women.
4. Palin lives and leads from a sense of divine destiny.

Mansfield discussed with Hannity the moment as a child when Governor Palin sensed a call to politics. He shared the difference between President Obama's extremely liberal theological perspective and Governor Palin's Pentecostal-rooted faith. And he commented on the video that surfaced during the 2008 campaign where she was being prayed over, which led to the lamestream media's completely unfair and severely uneducated characterization of the Governor's faith.

The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin has been an interesting read so far for me, as it points out the fact that when a person's faith truly matters to her--is truly a reality in her life--it cannot help but fashion how she views the world, how she operates within the world, and the impact she'll leave upon it.

You can order the book here.

Governor Palin Speaks at Anaheim RNC Rally

Saturday, October 16, 2010

At the RNC Rally in Anaheim, California, Governor Palin gave a speech that was effectively rich in substance and charisma. Already I am hearing people refer to it as her best since her 2008 RNC speech that had the country in awe after John McCain tapped her to run alongside him.

First, check out some images of the Governor while speaking, thanks to Ron Devito of U4P. Then, enjoy the video, retrieved from Josh Painter of Texas for Palin.
