Governor Palin: How Obama Repaid Notre Dame

Governor Palin released a Facebook note today about President Obama's decision to snatch away conscience protections from those of Catholic faith for whom the issue of life is most important. No one who has paid attention to President Obama's record is surprised at this action. After all, he is arguably the most pro-abortion president we've ever had. Nonetheless, it's hard not to get sick to the stomach.

The Governor writes:

Back in May 2009, during the controversy over Notre Dame’s decision to have President Obama as their commencement speaker and honorary degree recipient, I gave a short statement to the Boston Herald: “My favorite grandpa, Clem James Sheeran, was Catholic. Irish to the core, his favorite place (other than church) was Notre Dame. I can’t imagine what he would think as the university recognizes someone who contradicts the core values of the Catholic faith by promoting an anti-life agenda.”

In his latest Washington Post column, Michael Gerson writes about the Obama administration’s war on Catholic institutions with President Obama's decision to strip conscience protections from Catholic universities, hospitals and charities.

As Gershon points out, the timing of Obama's most recent slap won't go unnoticed by the faithful: "In politics, the timing is often the message. On Jan. 20 — three days before the annual March for Life — the Obama administration announced its final decision that Catholic universities, hospitals and charities will be compelled to pay for health insurance that covers sterilization, contraceptives and abortifacients. Preparing for the march, Catholic students gathered for Mass at Verizon Center. The faithful held vigil at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Knights of Columbus and bishops arrived to trudge in the cold along the Mall. All came to Washington in time for their mocking.”

And in this we see how the faithful at Notre Dame got snookered and how Obama has shamefully repaid their faith in him:

Both radicalism and maliciousness are at work in Obama’s decision — an edict delivered with a sneer...

The implications of Obama’s choice will take years to sort through. The immediate impact can be measured on three men:

Consider Catholicism’s most prominent academic leader, the Rev. John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame. Jenkins took a serious risk in sponsoring Obama’s 2009 honorary degree and commencement address — which promised a “sensible” approach to the conscience clause. Jenkins now complains, “This is not the kind of ‘sensible’ approach the president had in mind when he spoke here.” Obama has made Jenkins — and other progressive Catholic allies — look easily duped

Governor Palin on Sean Hannity

Monday, January 30, 2012

Governor Palin was Sean Hannity's guest tonight on his Fox News television show. She discussed her recent Facebook note calling out the GOP establishment, and once again she voiced the importance of continuing this primary process. The Governor is adamant that there are many ideas yet to be articulated by the four candidates; therefore, the best way to hear those ideas is for the process to go on.

Also, hear what she says are each candidates' strengths:

Governor Palin Explains 'Rage Against the Machine' to Judge Napolitano

Judge Napolitano interviewed Governor Palin on Fox Business tonight, and right out of the gate he asked her what she meant when she told Judge Pirro that voters in Florida should "rage against the machine" by voting for Newt Gingrich:

I want voters to rise up and allow this vetting process to continue so we can start hearing even more ideas--articulated even clearer what the solutions are--from these candidates, and how we're going to get back on the right track...we're only going to have that through an extended vetting process.

Judge Napolitano pressed Governor Palin on the candidacy of Ron Paul, stressing that he has consistently taken the right stands on issues that matter to conservatives. The Governor, not wanting to be dismissive of Ron Paul but wanting to be "practical," had this to say:
I want to make sure that my one vote really counts, and when you look at the numbers--when you do the math--you see that Romney and Newt Gingrich are the two front runners, and--it appears today--it's one or the other.

Governor Palin makes it clear that it is what it is, so one must spend her/his vote on a conservative candidate with a record of reform, one who can first, actually win the nomination and second, eventually beat President Obama.

Gov. Palin: Beautiful Bella Santorum

Sunday, January 29, 2012

Governor Palin posted a Facebook note earlier today in light of the hospitalization of Rick Santorum's little girl. Bella has a condition called Trisomy 18 and was never expected to live past the age of one. She is now three years old! Governor Palin, of course, understands the value of every human life and how special needs children teach us much more than we teach them. Her son, Trig, has Down Syndrome and has brought unspeakable joy to the Palin family, as Bella brings to the Santorums. Santorum had to cancel his campaign events today in Florida, ahead of the Tuesday primary, to be with beautiful Bella. God bless their family.

Governor Palin writes:

Thank you, Rick and Karen Santorum, for living the Christ-like example of sacrifice and right priorities. Nothing is more precious or important than the life of an innocent child. Our prayers are with Bella, a perfect child in an imperfect world.
God bless the beautiful Santorum family.

Governor Palin to Judge Pirro: Annoy a Liberal: Vote Newt

Saturday, January 28, 2012

Speaking to Judge Pirro tonight, Governor Palin again took on the establishment--the GOP machine--that would have us believe this primary race is over after Florida. "Rage against the machine," Governor Palin said, and let this vetting process continue.

Governor Palin also pointed out that Mitt Romney began the negativity against Gingrich with his attack ads and that Gingrich only responded, hesitantly, when it became necessary. Furthermore, she flat-out called Romneycare the precursor to Obamacare, which it was, of course.

Finally, she answered a question posed to the Judge on Twitter: Which candidate is most able to beat President Obama? Watch:

Governor Palin on Tom Sullivan Show

Tom Sullivan interviewed Governor Palin today--and a very substantive interview it was. He asked if she was worried by all the infighting taking place amongst the GOP candidates. The Governor, who is definitely in favor of thorough vetting and competitive primaries, discussed the negativity that is pervading the race right now, and she commented on the commitment to "bury Newt" that she is observing. She went on to clarify that she does believe "they should be tough on Newt," as they should be tough on everyone--especially President Obama.

However, she said, the politics of personal destruction have become "sort of the accepted MO in politics right now, and that makes me sick." She pointed out that these tactics keep good people from wanting to run for office. She described the politics of personal destruction as pathetic, sick, and unfair to voters.

Sullivan asked Governor Palin if in her private moments she regrets not getting in. She answered that she knows the same attacks that the candidates are enduring now would be waged against her if she were running and doesn't envy the candidates any. Sullivan was not fully satisfied with that answer. Wanting more specifics, he asked her if she is rethinking things and if she will get in, particularly since thirty percent of Republicans want someone other than the four candidates remaining in the hunt for the GOP nomination. She responded that she's up in Alaska raising her family and running businesses and doesn't have the organization to be a viable candidate at this point. "We have what we have today."

She again called out the GOP establishment who seem determined to pick our candidate for us. The more the establishment tries to pick our candidate, she asserted, the more we want to pick someone else.

When asked how to get the votes of Independents, which will be necessary to win in November, she answered, "It's common sense!" Then she went on to explain.

Tom Sullivan conducted a very good interview, and the Governor was fired up as she answered his questions and reflected on where things stand in this election process.

Celebrate SarahPAC's 3rd Anniversary

Friday, January 27, 2012

SarahPAC sent out the following email to Governor Palin's supporters:

SarahPAC Supporter,

It has been three years since Sarah Palin founded SarahPAC with a mission to stop the dangerous fundamental transformation that is taking place in America. Our founding fathers established America on the principles of freedom, hard work, honesty and independence, setting the course for American exceptionalism. These values have carried us through world wars, foreign attacks and economic hardships. Our founding core values create a strong America.

Today, crony capitalism and cradle-to-grave government interference in our lives are eroding these values, in the fundamental shift in our ideals. Three years ago we made it our goal to stop this transformation, and today our goal remains the same: to empower American patriots to protect their independence from the encroachment of government.

You have fought with us against the invasion of big government. Because of your courage, Washington has been reminded that their responsibility is to the American people not Washington insiders. As Americans, we have made our voice known, refusing to accept the politics-as-usual mentality.

But our work is not finished. There is still urgency. Because Obama continues to press his crushing agenda upon us, and the critical battle over the White House, Senate and House approaches this year. We must ensure that officials understand its strength lies in the American people. Hardworking American people build our cities, American people grow our food and American people lead the world in technology and innovation.

At SarahPAC, we are leading the fight to restore our foundations, never apologizing for America and always defending our core principles. Elections will determine whether this dangerous fundamental transformation is allowed to continue or whether our founding principles will be restored. You can make your stand by supporting SarahPAC and help Governor Palin support the candidates she believes share her vision for this country.

On the third Anniversary of SarahPAC, the work to restore American founding principles is as critical as ever, and SarahPAC needs your help. We are honored by the sacred trust you have placed with us through your donations. Please send your best gift possible to SarahPAC today.

Thank you for joining in our fight to preserve the America we know and love!

Governor Palin's Adviser, Peter Schweizer, Writes President Obama a Letter

As Stacy Drake pointed out Wednesday, President Obama made an interesting promise during his State of the Union address this week. Specifically, he said:

Send me a bill that bans insider trading by members of Congress. I will sign it tomorrow. Let’s limit any elected official from owning stocks in industries they impact.
Of course, Peter Schweizer, Governor Palin's foreign adviser, recently wrote the eye-opening book, Throw Them All Out, in which he pulls the blanket off the insider trading, crony capitalism, and blatant corruption existent in Congress--and names names. Today, Mr. Schweizer published a letter addressed to President Obama. Via, here are some of the highlights:

He lays the foundation:
Dear President Obama,

I watched your State of the Union address on Tuesday night and I want to welcome you aboard the reform train. You had some pointed things to say about congressional insider trading, which was a center point of my book "Throw Them All Out" which was published last November.

He gets specific:
I laid out how former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was getting rich off of stock IPOs and how her predecessor Dennis Hastert had a sweetheart land deal that included earmarks to build a highway near some land he bought.


I described the flurry of stock trades that people on both sides of the aisle were making while they were crafting and debating your health care reform legislation (ObamaCare) in 2009.

And I disclosed how Congressman Spencer Bachus of Alabama actually bought stock options to short the market after he got a private briefing from the Fed Reserve chairman and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner during the financial crisis.

From where you were standing, can you tell me if any of these people stood and applauded when you called for a ban on insider trading? I can’t tell from the video.

He praises the President for reading portions of his book:
I imagine that you (or more accurately your staff) read at least some of the chapters. Your two proposed solutions to the problem came straight out of the last chapter in my book.

For example, you called for making congressional insider trading illegal (which I mention on page 174) as well as preventing members of congress from trading stock in companies that fall under the purview of their committees.

I also proposed that legislation on page 174. Glad to know you think these are good ideas.

He points the President to parts of the book he obviously missed or chose to ignore:
In my book I point out that crony capitalism is a problem in the executive branch, too. (Maybe you skimmed over this part of the book?) In the State of Union address you continued to push government programs for green energy.

But in Chapter 5 of "Throw Them All Out," I demonstrated in great detail how your Department of Energy sent most of this money to wealthy individuals who funded your campaign in 2008.

I found at least 10 members of your national finance committee and at least a dozen bundlers who got sweetheart deals. (You can find the names in my book on pages 88, 100-1. I’m sure these names will be familiar to you. They are the same people who are currently raising money for your reelection.)

Read the full piece here.

Numerous times, Governor Palin has implored people to digest the contents of Throw Them All Out. She has a record of taking on corruption, so it's certainly no surprise that she and Peter Schweizer, another anti-corruption, anti-cronyism warrior, are so closely aligned. He, too, is unafraid to call it like he sees it--and he sees it like it is.

We anxiously await President Obama's response.

Governor Palin: Cannibals in GOP Establishment Employ Tactics of the Left

Governor Palin posted on Facebook again today. I could say much about what she wrote, but I can't say anything any better that she already did, so I'll just lob the ball to her for the slam dunk:

We have witnessed something very disturbing this week. The Republican establishment which fought Ronald Reagan in the 1970s and which continues to fight the grassroots Tea Party movement today has adopted the tactics of the left in using the media and the politics of personal destruction to attack an opponent.

We will look back on this week and realize that something changed. I have given numerous interviews wherein I espoused the benefits of thorough vetting during aggressive contested primary elections, but this week’s tactics aren’t what I meant. Those who claim allegiance to Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment should stop and think about where we are today. Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater, the fathers of the modern conservative movement, would be ashamed of us in this primary. Let me make clear that I have no problem with the routine rough and tumble of a heated campaign. As I said at the first Tea Party convention two years ago, I am in favor of contested primaries and healthy, pointed debate. They help focus candidates and the electorate. I have fought in tough and heated contested primaries myself. But what we have seen in Florida this week is beyond the pale. It was unprecedented in GOP primaries. I’ve seen it before – heck, I lived it before – but not in a GOP primary race.

I am sadly too familiar with these tactics because they were used against the GOP ticket in 2008. The left seeks to single someone out and destroy his or her record and reputation and family using the media as a channel to dump handpicked and half-baked campaign opposition research on the public. The difference in 2008 was that I was largely unknown to the American public, so they had no way of differentiating between the lies and the truth. All of it came at them at once as “facts” about me. But Newt Gingrich is known to us – both the good and the bad.

We know that Newt fought in the trenches during the Reagan Revolution. As Rush Limbaugh pointed out, Newt was among a handful of Republican Congressman who would regularly take to the House floor to defend Reagan at a time when conservatives didn’t have Fox News or talk radio or conservative blogs to give any balance to the liberal mainstream media. Newt actually came at Reagan’s administration “from the right” to remind Americans that freer markets and tougher national defense would win our future. But this week a few handpicked and selectively edited comments which Newt made during his 40-year career were used to claim that Newt was somehow anti-Reagan and isn’t conservative enough to go against the accepted moderate in the primary race. (I know, it makes no sense, and the GOP establishment hopes you won’t stop and think about this nonsense. Mark Levin and others have shown the ridiculousness of this.) To add insult to injury, this “anti-Reagan” claim was made by a candidate who admitted to not even supporting or voting for Reagan. He actually was against the Reagan movement, donated to liberal candidates, and said he didn’t want to go back to the Reagan days. You can’t change history. We know that Newt Gingrich brought the Reagan Revolution into the 1990s. We know it because none other than Nancy Reagan herself announced this when she presented Newt with an award, telling us, “The dramatic movement of 1995 is an outgrowth of a much earlier crusade that goes back half a century. Barry Goldwater handed the torch to Ronnie, and in turn Ronnie turned that torch over to Newt and the Republican members of Congress to keep that dream alive.” As Rush and others pointed out, if Nancy Reagan had ever thought that Newt was in any way an opponent of her beloved husband, she would never have even appeared on a stage with him, let alone presented him with an award and said such kind things about him. Nor would Reagan’s son, Michael Reagan, have chosen to endorse Newt in this primary race. There are no two greater keepers of the Reagan legacy than Nancy and Michael Reagan. What we saw with this ridiculous opposition dump on Newt was nothing short of Stalin-esque rewriting of history. It was Alinsky tactics at their worst.

But this whole thing isn’t really about Newt Gingrich vs. Mitt Romney. It is about the GOP establishment vs. the Tea Party grassroots and independent Americans who are sick of the politics of personal destruction used now by both parties’ operatives with a complicit media egging it on. In fact, the establishment has been just as dismissive of Ron Paul and Rick Santorum. Newt is an imperfect vessel for Tea Party support, but in South Carolina the Tea Party chose to get behind him instead of the old guard’s choice. In response, the GOP establishment voices denounced South Carolinian voters with the same vitriol we usually see from the left when they spew hatred at everyday Americans “bitterly clinging” to their faith and their Second Amendment rights. The Tea Party was once again told to sit down and shut up and listen to the “wisdom” of their betters. We were reminded of the litany of Tea Party endorsed candidates in 2010 who didn’t win. Well, here’s a little newsflash to the establishment: without the Tea Party there would have been no historic 2010 victory at all.

I spoke up before the South Carolina primary to urge voters there to keep this primary going because I have great concern about the GOP establishment trying to anoint a candidate without the blessing of the grassroots and all the needed energy and resources we as commonsense constitutional conservatives could bring to the general election in order to defeat President Obama. Now, I respect Governor Romney and his success. But there are serious concerns about his record and whether as a politician he consistently applied conservative principles and how this impacts the agenda moving forward. The questions need answers now. That is why this primary should not be rushed to an end. We need to vet this. Pundits in the Beltway are gleefully proclaiming that this primary race is over after Florida, despite 46 states still not having chimed in. Well, perhaps it’s possible that it will come to a speedy end in just four days; but with these questions left unanswered, it will not have come to a satisfactory conclusion. Without this necessary vetting process, the unanswered question of Governor Romney’s conservative bona fides and the unanswered and false attacks on Newt Gingrich will hang in the air to demoralize many in the electorate. The Tea Party grassroots will certainly feel disenfranchised and disenchanted with the perceived orchestrated outcome from self-proclaimed movers and shakers trying to sew this all up. And, trust me, during the general election, Governor Romney’s statements and record in the private sector will be relentlessly parsed over by the opposition in excruciating detail to frighten off swing voters. This is why we need a fair primary that is not prematurely cut short by the GOP establishment using Alinsky tactics to kneecap Governor Romney’s chief rival.

As I said in my speech in Iowa last September, the challenge of this election is not simply to replace President Obama. The real challenge is who and what we will replace him with. It’s not enough to just change up the uniform. If we don’t change the team and the game plan, we won’t save our country. We truly need sudden and relentless reform in Washington to defend our republic, though it’s becoming clearer that the old guard wants anything but that. That is why we should all be concerned by the tactics employed by the establishment this week. We will not save our country by becoming like the left. And I question whether the GOP establishment would ever employ the same harsh tactics they used on Newt against Obama. I didn’t see it in 2008. Many of these same characters sat on their thumbs in ‘08 and let Obama escape unvetted. Oddly, they’re now using every available microscope and endoscope – along with rewriting history – in attempts to character assassinate anyone challenging their chosen one in their own party’s primary. So, one must ask, who are they really running against?

- Sarah Palin

We could all learn a lesson from the Governor on calling a spade a spade--even when those in "power" are holding the cards. How can one not respect the boldness of this woman?

Sarah Palin: Fiscal Sanity for America, Moral Sanity for the World

I just love Sarah Palin--and mostly for doing things like what she expressed in the Facebook note she posted today. I'm talking about Sarah Palin the person, not just the former governor of Alaska, the former Vice Presidential candidate, the Fox News Analyst, the author, or any of the other hats she currently wears or has worn. The stand that Sarah Palin, one of us, continues to take for faith, the refusal to bow down to what's become not only politically correct but "hip" today, and the boldness with which she speaks up for decency make me respect her more and more. I am extremely grateful that not only is she an advocate for fiscal sanity in this country, but more so that she's an advocate for moral sanity in this world.

She writes:

It seems astonishing that someone would be offended by a simple prayer card placed on an airline’s meal tray, but I guess that’s the politically correct world we live in now. A few days ago, Rev. Franklin Graham gave me a heads up that Alaska Airlines may discontinue its nice, decades-long Alaskan tradition of including a little prayer card on flight meal trays. Rev. Graham is a frequent flyer to Alaska on Alaska Airlines because of his missionary work. Of course, as an Alaskan I’m also a frequent flyer on this airlines, which always seems to provide superb service. When I heard from Rev. Graham, I immediately sent the following letter to the CEO and President of Alaska Airlines.

It feels so odd that some may be offended by a little card with an encouraging non-denominational verse from the Psalms, but how often do we hear complaints about tawdry ads or billboard images flashing at us everywhere we turn? People of faith and common decency just shrug and move on from the constant assault on their sensibilities; we don’t call for censorship – at least I don’t. So, why in this day and age must every reference to faith in God be censored from the public square? Why must a private company buckle under pressure from a handful of people who find a little card saying “the Lord is my shepherd” offensive? I’m sure there are many more people who appreciate the cards, or at least are ambivalent about them.

Is it any wonder that people of faith feel their beliefs are constantly marginalized or even under outright attack when we hear reports like this and stories about Catholic institutions being forced to sue the Obama administration over their right to conscience objections? This Alaska Airlines story is just about a simple meal card, but for these Catholic institutions it’s about an issue that cuts to the heart of their deepest religious beliefs.

Here is the letter I sent to Alaska Airlines, and I encourage other customers to let their voices be heard. Granted, it’s hip to wage war on American traditions lately – especially anything faith-based – but for many of us it’s just not in our DNA to merely shrug off the nonsensical attacks on positive, inspiring, and (in my opinion) needed encouragement today.
Dear Mr. Ayer and Mr. Tilden:

Thank you for your tremendous service to Alaskans and so many others over all these years! We love Alaska Airlines. As I tell everyone, it is my favorite.

In my book “Going Rogue” I gave a special shout-out to airline employees because of the extraordinary customer service and good attitudes I witness on flights that my family and I take around this great country. It’s inspiring and impressive to see the sweet spirit of hard working airline employees shine, in spite of sometimes difficult people and circumstances dealt with everyday.

Also inspiring and impressive, and very encouraging, is the special touch Alaska Airlines has blessed fliers with for many years. Your small prayer cards that remind us of the beauty of thankfulness have never ceased to amaze me. In this tumultuous world, finding this little tangible reminder of such an important virtue is always uplifting! Thank you for providing the cards.

It’s come to my attention that the cards may be discontinued due to a few who are offended. I really hope this is just a rumor. Please remain strong and courageous in the face of a cultural trend that wants to wage war on any positive thing that a few may construe as offensive. The Alaska Airlines tradition should be looked upon as an all-American, hopeful, encouraging gesture. Please don’t discontinue the cards.

Thank you again for your service!

Sarah Palin and family

God bless you, Sarah Palin. Keep the faith!


President Obama Takes Stand Against Corruption?

Everyone who listened to President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night heard him say if a bill to end insider trading in Congress landed on his desk, he would sign it. I found this most interesting. Peter Schweizer, Governor Palin's foreign adviser, recently released his book, Throw Them All Out, which put a spotlight on insider trading and crony capitalism running rampant in government. He also gave specifics about the crony capitalism our own President is engaged in, as he provides special favors to those who did their part to put him in office. It's the same old you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours game that has become as common to politics as scratching fleas is to dogs.

Stacy Drake wrote a Conservatives4Palin piece yesterday discussing this:

As many of you are aware, Peter Schweizer, Governor Palin’s adviser and an editor for Breitbart, has been leading the fight in exposing the insider trading and abuse of power by the nation’s lawmakers. To the surprise of many of us, President Obama took up the issue of insider trading on Capitol Hill in last night’s State of the Union speech.

Consider me skeptical, yet encouraged by Obama’s statement on this particular issue. The other 99% of his speech was just more of the same class warfare, leftist drivel that we’ve come to expect from the current commander-in-chief, and thus, not very encouraging at all.


While this is indeed a “victory” in the fight against corruption in government, I’ll believe that the president is serious about signing a bill when I see it. I’d also like to read any bill he does sign if it ever does land on his desk. Obama is good at selling one thing as another, and since the media rarely calls him out on this, why wouldn’t he be?

One last thing that struck me about the president’s comments was his sheer hypocrisy. Towards the end of the clip above, he says:

Let’s make sure people who bundle campaign contributions for Congress can’t lobby Congress, and vice versa – an idea that has bipartisan support, at least outside of Washington.

Yes it does, Mr. President. However, the same should apply to the executive branch, shouldn’t it? If you recall, Obama’s bundlers were at the heart of the Solyndra scandal.


I do commend Obama for talking about the “corrosive influence of money in politics,” I also recognize that the current administration is just as ‘corroded’ as Congress. My advice to voters is to do as the title of Schweizer’s book suggests and “throw them all out” come November, and that includes Obama.

There's much more to Stacy's article. Read it in its entirety here.

Gov. Palin Calls Out Chris Christie's 'Rookie Mistake,' Says He Got His 'Panties in a Wad'

Eric Bolling interviewed Governor Palin this afternoon, the entirety of which I assume will air tonight on Fox Business at 10:00 Eastern. In the clip below, the Governor calls out New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for his "rookie mistake" and getting his "panties in a wad" when he played into the Left's hands by accusing Newt Gingrich of being a GOP embarrassment.

Priceless, Governor Palin!

Newt Gingrich Credits Governor Palin for Surge

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Many Palin supporters would have liked to hear Newt Gingrich thank Governor Palin, along with the plethora of others he thanked, upon winning South Carolina. He did not do so from the podium tonight. However, he had already credited her for his surge.

Via Red Dog Report:

There’s no question we saw it help us in fundraising. We saw it help us in volunteers. We saw people, all of a sudden, on the phones. She has a significant following in the Republican Party.

And frankly, I mean, to have her say she’d vote for me in South Carolina, since we’re in South Carolina and the election’s on Saturday, that was a big break and it really helped us a lot.

As recent as Wednesday, the former Speaker said he will ask Governor Palin to play a "major role" in his administration if he is elected President. Huma Khan of ABC News reports:
"Certainly, she’s one of the people I’d call on for advice,” Gingrich said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “I would ask her to consider taking a major role in the next administration if I’m president, but nothing has been discussed of any kind. And it wouldn’t be appropriate to discuss it at this time."

Time will tell, but this could get rather interesting.

BigFoot 2012: Fact or Hoax?

Here's another video from PassCodeCreative, the group which has created some of Governor Palin's SarahPAC videos. It's called "BigFoot 2012: Fact of Hoax?" Last night I posted their video, "BigFoot vs Mitt Romney," which you can watch here.


Newt Gingrich is the Projected South Carolina Victor

The polls have now closed in South Carolina, and Fox News and others project that Newt Gingrich has won, while Mitt Romney has come in second. Interesting that the presumptive nominee, the front-runner, as Romney is called, has lost two out of the three elections so far.

Fox reports:

Newt Gingrich has won the South Carolina Republican primary, Fox News projects, further scrambling an already volatile presidential race which has produced three different winners in three states.

Fox News projects that Mitt Romney will place second in the Palmetto State, where he was leading in the polls just one week ago. Rick Santorum and Ron Paul are battling for third place, and that contest remains too close to call, though Fox News exit polls show Santorum with a slight lead over the Texas congressman.

Gingrich's victory marks a remarkable comeback for the former House speaker, propelled by his strong performance in two debates in South Carolina this week.

Earlier this week, Governor Palin, though not giving Gingrich a full endorsement, said if she were a South Carolinian, she would vote for him to keep the race going so all candidates can be vetted to the max. "No October surprises," she repeatedly says.

Benyamin Korn Highlights the Palin "Grizzly" Factor

Benyamin Korn, publisher of Jews For Sarah, penned an article for The New York Sun today in which he highlights the power Governor Palin continues to wield although she is not on any GOP ballot. He writes:

Who is the leader of the “Not-Romney” movement within today’s GOP?

Is it Newt Gingrich, whose surge in the South Carolina opinion polls puts him within striking distance of front-runner Mitt in tomorrow’s vote?

Is it Ron Paul, whose dedicated core of “hard-money” but isolationist supporters gives him 15 to 20% in every Republican contest?

Or is it Rick Santorum, recently endorsed by a raft of Christian evangelical leaders?

For my dollar, the leader is Sarah Palin, whose endorsements continue to carry more weight among conservatives than any other national figure and who is well-positioned to play a king-making role in the 2012 elections similar to her “Mama Grizzly” performance guiding the Republican surge in 2010.

How did this happen? She’s not running. She’s in Alaska. Since declaring herself a non-candidate at the beginning of October, Mrs. Palin has kept a pretty low profile.


Recent weeks have seen a resurgence of the Grizzly factor.

Mr. Korn's piece dissects Governor Palin's influence, even from distant Wasilla, Alaska. He explains how one word spoken by the Governor has translated into undeniable results.

He ends his article with this:
So what is next for the politician The New York Sun calls “the alert Alaskan”? For now, to keep the GOP pot boiling.

She is able to do so because millions think she is brilliant, incorruptible, and knows how to lead. Many of them hope she will still get into this race, but she has insisted that in this political season she will make her contribution from the side-lines with the goal of a Republican president in 2013.

And Then There Were Four--All Better Than Obama

Thursday, January 19, 2012

The GOP presidential field is down to four. Governor Rick Perry is the latest to suspend his campaign, which he did late this morning. Along with stepping aside, he endorsed Newt Gingrich for President. Not only did he state that Gingrich has the heart of a conservative, he also conceded that the former Speaker isn't perfect but that God offers redemption--and who among us doesn't need that redemption? Governor Perry showed great class in his comments.

Governor Palin tweeted the following today after Perry left the race:

Rick Perry reflects the character of his great state: strong, tenacious, big heart. Good job, Governor. You are a true American patriot.

In other news, it was revealed today that Mitt Romney did not win the Iowa Caucuses, so all the talk about his making history by being the only candidate to ever win both Iowa and New Hampshire can now end. We learned this morning that Rick Santorum actually had 34 more votes than Romney, so congratulations to the former Senator.

The news of the day, of course, is the interview Newt Gingrich's ex-wife Marianna gave to ABC, set to air tonight. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what's going on here. Their marriage ended over a decade ago, Marianna has already had her say, and Newt has already said he's gone to God for forgiveness. It's no coincidence that the interview will be shown prior to Saturday's South Carolina Primary, just as Gingrich has risen in the polls there.

We American voters have to decide for ourselves, and however individuals personally arrive at that decision, it is absolutely essential that we do not allow the media to pick our candidate for us. The lamestream media has one goal in mind: help re-elect President Obama. We the people cannot afford that. This is a President who chooses politics over all, further evidenced by his rejection of the Keystone Pipeline yesterday. This energy project would bring thousands and thousands of jobs to Americans, but the President said "no" so he could kiss up to the extreme environmentalists he's counting on to vote for him. This is a shame. This President is a job killer, and I believe that whoever emerges as the GOP nominee will be, to use Governor Palin's words, "infinitely better than President Obama." Some would be better than others, of course, but we definitely need new leadership, and November can't come soon enough for me.


Governor Palin Would Vote for Newt Gingrich in S.C.

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Governor Palin and Sean Hannity discussed last night's GOP debate, which was full of fireworks. The Governor declared Newt Gingrich the winner, and I can't imagine anyone who watched would disagree.

She didn't make a full endorsement yet, but she did say if she were a South Carolinian, she would vote for Gingrich in Saturday's Primary, as she would like to see this process continue. Republican candidates need to be tested and prepared so that the best candidate to take on President Obama will emerge.

Let Freedom Ring!

Monday, January 16, 2012

We honor Dr. Martin Luther King for his commitment to justice and equality for all people. He fought the status quo in full awareness that he would likely have to sacrifice more than most ever would, that he would pay the ultimate price. To be able to stare the possibility of death in the face and not back down is a true lesson in courage.

In 2012, freedom is still on the line in America. It may look a little different, but just as much is at stake. Dr. King once said that "freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor. It must be demanded by the oppressed." Many in this country feel like their freedoms are being stripped away by government, by a permanent political class who is willing to sacrifice the future of our children and grandchildren, and by an administration that ignores our Constitution. No wonder people are rising up and making their voices heard. May we continue to do so nonviolently, but loudly if need be.

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, whom we celebrate today, "Let freedom ring!"

Happy Martin Luther King Day.


Governor Palin Highlights President Obama's Failed Presidency

Saturday, January 14, 2012

Governor Palin was Judge Jeanine Pirro's guest for the second consecutive Saturday. The Governor emphasized the importance of vetting, rather than removing certain topics from the table of discussion. Therefore, Mitt Romney's Bain Capital record should be fair game. We see what happened when then-candidate Obama skated through the process without vetting. The GOP, says Governor Pain, must not do the same with our candidates.

She also talked about why she has not endorsed. Like many, she is still vetting and trying to decide. She acknowledged that her name attached to a candidate might cause controversy, and she wants to "help the cause, not hurt the cause."

Governor Palin pointed out the damage President Obama has done to this country. With the increase of debt, the rise of unemployment, and a housing market in the tank, President Obama certainly hasn't improved anything, she articulated.

Is Romney the GOP Version of The Anointed One?

In 2008, when Barack Obama became the Democrat Party's heir apparent, nobody could touch him or anyone associated with him. We were warned to leave his wife alone, leave his children alone, leave the Jeremiah Wright connection alone, and had he had a record at the time, we would've been told to leave that alone as well. He was to be protected so he could be elected--and come hell or high water, he just had to be elected.

Fast forward four years later, and cross over to the other side of the aisle. The Republican Establishment has made it clear who they want as the Party's nominee this go around. Mitt Romney must be feeling pretty good right about now. He has made history by winning both Iowa and New Hampshire, has unbelievably weaseled himself out of being held accountable for Romneycare, and while he has gained some endorsements that--let's be honest--amount to nothing much at all, he has also received some key endorsements, including one from Tea Party favorite, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. (Still shaking my head over that one.)

Recently, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry have questioned Romney's actions at Bain Capital, and one would think they questioned his citizenship or something. Outrage ensued. Anger ran rampant. Shouts of the Scripture, "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm" could be heard up and down these United States of America. Romney's rivals, it seems, have done what "thou shalt not do"--and I'm not even talking about an assault on free market capitalism, as they have been accused of waging, because does anyone really believe that either Rick Perry or Newt Gingrich is an anti-capitalist? I'm talking about their greater "sin" of suggesting that the presumptive GOP nominee, the GOP version of The Anointed One, undergo some serious vetting now so that, as Governor Palin keeps warning, there will be no "October Surprise."

The responses to this suggestion have been apoplectic.

As usual, Governor Palin, however, puts things in the proper perspective:

I don't agree with attacks on free market capitalism at all, but I don't believe that that's really what is at the heart of Governor Perry's criticism of Romney and his time at Bain. This isn't about a politician making huge profits in the private sector. I think what Governor Perry is getting at is that Governor Romney has claimed to have created 100,000 jobs at Bain and people are wanting to know is there proof of that claim and was it U.S. jobs created for U.S. citizens?


I believe that that is what Governor Perry is getting at, you know, own up to the claims that are being made. And that's fair. That's not negative campaigning. That's fair to get a candidate to be held accountable to what's being claimed, especially when it comes to job creation because so many of us are so concerned about what's going on on Main Street as well as Wall Street.

The Governor goes on to explain that no one should be surprised that demands for transparency are being made, that this all needs to come out. Instead of being in a state of shock and outrage, Romney should simply provide records and information to put the issue to rest because, she states, whether he deals with it now or deals with it in the general election, should he secure the nomination, he will have to deal with it.

Governor Palin understands fully the value of flexing those vetting muscles. Romney's record at Bain, including the manner in which he went about his hiring and--especially now--his firing (his use of the term having already become a Debbie Wasserman Schultz tool), will undergo intense scrutiny. So what's the problem? Instead of tackling the issue by getting it all out on the table, the Right is caught up in how "crude," "disturbing," "indefensible," and "desperate" this line of questioning is, according to The Wall Street Journal, National Review, Rush Limbaugh, and Senator McCain respectively.

As Governor Palin pointed out, why shouldn't conservatives look into what the buyouts at Bain were all about and if Romney's actions there resulted in government bailouts that profitted him? None of us can speak for Perry or Gingrich and what they meant exactly with the precise language they used, and candidates must be honest and forthright in their assertions, yet something tells me that there's more here than the Establishment has recognized--or wants to investigate. Instead of majoring in, "Oh my goodness, I cannot believe they suggested that Romney did something untoward," perhaps they should cry out for more transparency on Romney's part.

Hillary Clinton came under attack because she posed a threat to the man the Left, in cahoots with the media, was determined to place atop the throne. Those propping him up got what they wanted, and many who voted for the unvetted Barack Obama soon learned that they should have looked a little more closely beforehand. No one should get a passing grade before taking the test. No one should get a pass, either. Being tested is what Governor Palin refers to when she talks about the "rough and tumble" part of the process. Each candidate needs to undergo this, no one should be exempted, and everyone's record is fair game. When it's all said and done, may the best candidate in the race emerge victorious--or at least the candidate who withstood a rigorous, aggressive, and full-throated process. Anything short of this will give Republicans a candidate ill-equipped for the next round, where things will really get ugly.

The GOP Establishment clearly wants their shot at what Democrats--and America--got in 2008: a smooth-talking, Harvard educated, insulated "Messiah." The Establishment is determined to transition Primary Candidate Romney into General Election Candidate Romney, and if they think vetting him now at every angle is "crude," "disturbing," "indefensible," and "desperate," just wait till President Obama and his campaign get ahold of him as they work to make sure he doesn't become President Romney. After all, President Obama still thinks he's The Anointed One, and he's not interested in playing nice when his crown is on the line.

"Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm" does not refer to Mitt Romney, GOP, no more than it should have referred to President Obama in the last presidential election. So for the sake of this country, do your due diligence and encourage the "rough and tumble" vetting process.


Video: Gov. Palin on Sean Hannity

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Governor Palin was on with Sean Hannity tonight. One thing he discussed at length with her is her reaction to the "rough and tumble" fight for the GOP nomination, especially Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry's attack on Mitt Romney's Bain Capital record. Perry has called Romney's actions "vulture capitalism," causing many Republicans to accuse them of using the same tactics on Romney that the left uses on all conservatives." What does Governor Palin say, and is she ready to endorse a candidate yet?

Todd Palin: Gingrich is a Reformer

Monday, January 9, 2012

Todd Palin went On the Record to speak to Greta Van Susteren tonight via phone from Alaska. He explained why he chose to endorse Newt Gingrich for President, using a term for the former Speaker that is often used to describe his wife: reformer.

In answer to Greta's question, which amounted to whether he had any regrets that he and his wife are not on the campaign trail, he stated, "I’m glad she decided to sit this one out."

Todd Palin Endorses Newt Gingrich, Says ABC

ABC News reports today that Todd Palin has endorsed Newt Gingrich for President:

Sarah Palin’s husband is endorsing Newt Gingrich for president, Todd Palin told ABC News today.

But Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and John McCain’s 2008 Republican running mate, has yet to decide “who is best able to go up against Barack Obama,” Todd Palin said.

Palin said he has not spoken to Gingrich or anyone from the former House speaker’s campaign. But he said he respects Gingrich for what he went through in the 1990s and compared that scrutiny in public life to what Sarah Palin went through during her run for the vice presidency.

Todd Palin said he believes that being in the political trenches and experiencing the highs and lows help prepare a candidate for the future and the job of president.

He did not criticize any of the other candidates and said his “hat is off to everyone” in the Republican race.

But Todd Palin did point to last summer, when a large portion of Gingrich’s staff resigned and the candidate was left, largely by himself, to run the campaign.

Gingrich’s ability to overcome the obstacle and still move up in the polls showed his ability to campaign and survive, according to Todd Palin, who said Gingrich is not one of the typical “beltway types” and that his campaign has “burst out of the political arena and touched many Americans.”

Governor Palin Has No Regrets & Reveals Which Candidate MSM & Obama Want to Face

Saturday, January 7, 2012

Tonight, Governor Palin was Judge Jeanine Pirro's guest on her Fox News show, Justice w/ Judge Jeanine. The Judge started right out the gate with the question that people have oft asked the Governor: Any regrets? Governor Palin reiterated that she has no regrets for not throwing her hat into the GOP ring.

After Judge Jeanine stated a couple times that Governor Palin had called for Jon Huntsman and Michele Bachmann to drop out of the race, the Governor corrected her. She clarified that what she gave was her opinion, which wasn't personal but was rooted in reality. Poll numbers showed consistently that it was not Bachmann's time, for example; therefore, for the sake of family finance, it would make sense to consider doing what Bachmann, in fact, did do: step aside. Governor Palin stated her point was that it would make sense "for their own good that they would look at stepping aside and having their supporters start coalescing around another candidate in order to oust the incumbent." This is further illustration of Governor Palin's commitment to what she calls ABO, anybody but Obama. She did point out, too, that Representative Bachmann's failure to maintain traction had nothing to do with the Tea Party losing relevance, but that Bachmann had "some staff members around her who didn't do her justice." That's the truth--which, to me, speaks to her own judgment. But we all live and learn.

About Mitt Romney, Governor Palin predicts that the media will go easy on him. "I believe the mainstream media, and Obama, want to face Mitt Romney in the general election" so they can portray him as out of touch with the regular, everyday, working class American. I believe she's right. The President is married to class warfare, and Romney lends himself to that tactic. (See his $10,000 bet suggestion for fodder.)

This was a rather substantive interview, with Governor Palin doing a fine job of discussing the candidates and giving us more of a look into what we have in store as we continue in this Primary process and head into the general election.

Before tuning in to tonight's New Hampshire GOP debate, watch Judge Jeanine at 9 p.m. Eastern as she interviews Governor Palin on Fox News.


New Hampshire GOP Weekend Debates

The Iowa Caucuses are behind us, but the GOP race is just heating up. Tuesday is the New Hampshire Primary, and ahead of it, candidates will be participating in two weekend debates, one on ABC tonight at 9 p.m Eastern and the other on NBC tomorrow morning at 9.

Tonight's debate will also be live streamed on WMUR and Yahoo! News.

Nate, at 2012 Election Central, makes this prediction about tonight's debate:

This debate is certain to offer a Mitt Romney pile-on by the likes of Gingrich, Santorum and Paul. I'd expect Huntsman to come out fairly strong as well since all his eggs are in the New Hampshire basket. Rick Perry will be debating with an eye toward South Carolina since polls show he has little to no chance of making headway in the Granite state.


ACU Reports Governor Palin Will Keynote CPAC

Thursday, January 5, 2012

I always like to get confirmation from Governor Palin before I post her appearances as fact, but I will at this time report that, according to The American Conservative Union, she will give the keynote address at CPAC on February 11th, which also happens to be her birthday.

The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced former Vice Presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will deliver a special keynote address at CPAC 2012 – the 39th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, February 9 – Saturday, February 11, 2012, in Washington, DC. The FOX News contributor and New York Times bestselling author will conclude the three-day event, a slot occupied by Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and U.S. Congressman Allen West in the past three years.

“Few national conservative leaders in America today energize and inspire our grassroots activists like Governor Sarah Palin. Her strong record of leadership, championing of our shared principles and magnetic personality have made Sarah Palin a hero to millions of conservatives across the country,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “As we ready for the critical 2012 election, I’m honored to welcome Governor Palin to the Conservative Political Action Conference for the first-time ever.”

Every year, the ACU brings thousands of grassroots conservatives and conservative leaders together in Washington, DC for three days of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional values.

More information to come as Governor Palin confirms this appearance herself.


Governor Palin to NRO: I'm All In Favor of Girls With Guns Who Know Their Purpose

Governor Palin told National Review Online that she's "all in favor of girls with guns who know their purpose." Before people try to twist Governor Palin's words, they need to know that it was that gun that saved a young woman and her baby from an intruder who was clearly not in her home to do anything admirable.

Brian Bolduc reports:

On New Year’s Eve, 18-year-old Sarah McKinley shot and killed 24-year-old Justin Martin, who was trying to break into her Oklahoma home. Before McKinley confronted the crook, she called 911 and asked the dispatcher, “Is it okay to shoot him if he comes in this door?”

“I can’t tell you that you can do that, but you do what you have to do to protect your baby,” the dispatcher replied.

When Martin kicked in the door, McKinley fired. Police later said the shooting was justified.

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin agrees. In an email to NRO, Palin writes, “I love that young woman. I’m all in favor of girls with guns who know their purpose. She fulfilled a purpose of the Second Amendment. I’d advise my own daughters to do the same. This mom protected an innocent life. Kudos to the 911 dispatcher, too.”

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann Steps Aside

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann ended her campaign for the GOP presidential nomination today. After last night's last place finish in the Iowa Caucuses, I expected as much. So when she spoke, after realizing her dismal finish, that she was still the person to defeat President Obama, I was at a loss for how she could miss what the rest of us see: It's been a valiant effort, but it's over. She won the Iowa Straw Poll, but that was it. Enthusiasm for her simply didn't remain, and neither did the finances to continue.

Today, Congresswoman Bachmann admitted as much, and said she has no regrets. Though I simply wasn't sparked by her campaign, and though I didn't agree with every manner in which she conducted business, I've always respected her stand for fiscal and social conservatism. Her unashamed faith in Christ opened her up to the kind of criticism Christians always receive in this country now, unfortunately, but it's certainly refreshing to see her boldness regardless.

As Governor Palin stated last night during her Fox participation in the Iowa Caucuses, Bachmann will continue to serve us well in the House of Representatives.

Watch some of Representative Bachmann's comments here.

Iowa Caucuses Day

Today is Iowa Caucuses day. The polls have been unreliable in showing anything, except that Iowans lack confidence in the current GOP field and cannot settle on a candidate. Granted, Rick Santorum has surged at just the right time, but who knows what will happen after tonight?

Be sure to tune into Bret Baier tonight. Governor Palin will participate in Fox News' coverage of the Caucuses.


Eric Bolling Asks Gov. Palin if She's Considering Jumping into 2012 Race

Monday, January 2, 2012

On the eve of the Iowa Caucuses, Governor Palin appeared on Fox News, where Eric Bolling was filling in for Neil Cavuto. In light of the recent ads in Iowa asking her to "Reconsider" her decision and run for President, the movements to draft her, and the write-in "Vote Rogue" campaign, Bolling asked the Governor many questions about entering the 2012 race.

Reading various internet comments reveals that some people actually get it now: she does not plan to run. Others refuse to face that and insist "she's SO running." Still some are trashing her, which I knew would occur when people finally saw that she's not running and would need someone to blame for their own wishes that they thrust upon her.

Eric Bolling asked her about Newt Gingrich's recent comment that she is on his short list as a possible VP running mate or as a member of his cabinet, Energy Secretary.

Finally, Governor Palin also discussed the current GOP field again and stated something that many of us have felt for some time: Jon Huntsman should drop out of the race. "He didn't even give it the old college try in Iowa," which is "offensive." She then said Michele Bachmann will probably soon follow. While acknowledging that Bachmann has some good ideas, she said, "I don't think it's her time this go-around."

Concerning jumping into the 2012 fray, I believe Governor Palin made it abundantly clear for those who have ears to hear. You have to decide for yourself, of course:

What Are You Looking at This Year?

Sunday, January 1, 2012

Happy New Year, everyone! What--and who--are you looking at in 2012? From where will you find your inspiration, your hope, and your joy?

There's only one place to look. There's only One who can fulfill all your needs and the desires of your heart as well, in accordance with His will. That One is the Lord. God is good, so let's look to Him this year. Let's walk in His power and authority, expecting to make a difference, impacting those around us, and being the servant of all.

It is imperative that we fix our eyes upon Jesus, for He is the Source of all that we need. Sure, He uses people to fulfill His purposes, and sure, He wants to use each of us, but it all comes from His power. Therefore, He must receive all the praise, as we can do nothing without Him. With Him, however, all things are possible to those who believe, as the Bible says.

God bless you as you walk forward into your destiny this year.
