Liberals Heap Hate On Gospel Singer BeBe Winans for Singing at RNC

Friday, August 31, 2012

I recently covered the hate heaped upon black conservatives Mia Love and Condoleezza Rice following their speeches at the Republican National Convention. It didn't end there. Last night, the final night of the RNC, featured Gospel legend, BeBe Winans. He and a choir graced the Convention with their soulful, patriotic singing. Who would have thought this would open him up to attacks by the left? Anyone paying attention to how the left operates should have expected it.

BeBe is a Democrat, and he received no compensation for his appearance. However, the left railed on him for sinking so low as to share his gift with a bunch of Republicans last night. The nerve!

Via Twitchy.com:

Musicians gotta make a living. Performing at a GOP function, however, is apparently the eighth deadly sin of the entertainment industry. Gospel singer BeBe Winans, a registered Democrat, sang tonight as part of an unpaid gig. He would’ve performed at the DNC, too, but for some unknown reason, they pulled their invitation.

The singer received a tsunami of Twitter spewage for his appearance and misinformed criticism for being a sellout.

Here are a few of those tweets, but I must warn you, as I did here, that the language is raw.

Governor Palin to Troops: We Remember Your Sacrifice


Governor Palin, via Facebook:
Last night wrapped up a convention that was very encouraging; so, thank you to all who worked hard to provide needed inspiration while focusing on the U.S. economy. And for all the great speeches we heard at the convention this week and those we’ll hear next week, I sincerely hope we as Americans, despite our political disagreements, will respectfully remember our brave men and women in uniform – for they are still in harm’s way so that we can sleep in peace. Our troops in Afghanistan have suffered terrible casualties this year. We don’t hear much about this lately. You never hear our troops complain though, even when it seems like some of us safely back home enjoying the freedoms they protect too easily forget their sacrifices. But the moms wearing blue and gold stars remember. The wives and husbands raising kids alone while their spouse is in a war zone remember. The kids whose mom and dad can’t be there for birthdays and school plays and skinned knees and graduations remember. Every American who loves freedom should remember.

To our U.S. troops over there, please know that we remember your sacrifice. We support and honor you, and we pray for your safe and speedy return home where you are loved and belong.

- Sarah Palin

Governor Palin always remembers our troops. She takes every opportunity to thank those serving, and those who have served, for the tremendous sacrifices they make. She certainly understands such sacrifices, as her own son, Track, has served in Iraq and is currently serving in Afghanistan. We thank Track for his service to his country.

Black Liberals Label Condoleezza Rice an "Uncle Tom" After Her RNC Speech; Language Warning

Thursday, August 30, 2012

First it was Mia Love (covered here). Now it's Condoleezza Rice. Liberals, especially black ones, are known for their racism. Yes, I said black liberals are known for racism--against blacks--while simultaneously accusing Republicans of racism at every turn. They use terms like "Uncle Tom," "house nigger," and "sell out." They reserve such language for fellow blacks who don't think like they expect them to think. That would be blacks who refuse to succumb to the victimhood, defeatist mentality that is every bit as embedded in the Democratic party's platform as is their undying commitment to abortion.

If you're a black liberal and you take offense at what I've said because it doesn't apply to you, then you need to hold your fellow Democrats accountable, for their behavior toward blacks is reprehensible and quite telling.

Racism isn't a defining characteristic of the Republican party. History teaches us that. But the present teaches us that as well. As I watch white Republican attendees at a Republican event where blacks are speaking, and as I watch Democrats listening to a black Republican speak, I very often see contempt. But it's not in the eyes of those white Republicans. In their eyes, I most often see admiration and great enthusiasm. It's often in the eyes of Democrats, especially black Democrats, where I find contempt--that these blacks would dare to think independently and be true to those thoughts.

Just a Conservative Girl reported the language used, via Twitter, to describe former Secretary of State Condi Rice as she gave an inspirational, articulate speech at the Republican National Convention last night. I warn you now that the language is raw, vulgar, and despicable. It is not language I normally post on this site, and it is certainly not language I ever use. I am choosing to post it here because it illustrates the vile tactics of the left when dealing with blacks on the right. If it bothers you, that's a good sign. These attacks should be jarring:

Tweets following Condi Rice's amazing (no telepromter needed) speech at the Republican National Convention:

Fuck Condoleezza Rice fucking uncle tom

Fuck Condoleezza Rice!!!!!!!! Uncle Tom ass Biotch!!!

Condaleeza Rice has to be the biggest Uncle Tom in history.... Right after Uncle Ruckus from Boondocks.

Condoleezza Rice..smh.. I guess I have to respect the fact that she's been an uncle Tom for quite sometime now.. that can't be easy

See, Condoleezza Rice, is what we call, an Uncle Tom.

Watching Condalezza Rice at the Republican Convention makes me sick she a Uncle Tom like hell

I hope that fuckin' Uncle Tom @AllenWest was paying attention Condoleeza Rice disagreed with the first black president w/o disrespecting him

Somebody need to tell Condoleeza "Red Beans and" Rice ol uncle Tom ass she got lipstick on her teeth.

Condeleeeza Rice is such a dick rider.... that;s why I don't like her uncle tom ass....!!!
sadly, this one is from a black woman.

CONDELEEZZA RICE IS A UNCLE TOM ASS BROAD... SHE'S BEING PLAYED BY THE REPUBLICANS AS A PAWN AND SHE'S OK WITH IT... SMDH

CONDOLEEZZA RICE......YOU OLE UNCLE TOM AS BITCH!!!!!!!!

Condoleeza Rice is the definition of a Uncle Tom

Why is it so hard for people to call Condi Rice an Uncle Tom?

Condoleeza rice is the definition of an uncle Tom and a coon all at the sane time!

I wonder how Condoleeza Rice and @gopblackchick feel when them white folks make em sleep in the slave quarters after the election.

Yep, racism only exists on the right. Got it.

Dr. Rice's crime and Mayor Mia Love's crime is the same: they are black and Republican, which means they have wandered off the liberal plantation on which the liberal left expects blacks to dwell. In the liberal's mind, the ability of blacks to think for themselves and choose their own political path based on their ideals is indicative of selling out. The saddest part of their sickness is they don't even know they're sick. They don't see their own racism. They don't understand that their idea that a black person has to think a certain way stems from the insulting, racist mindset that blacks cannot think any other way. Their assertions that a successful black person, even one who's been given the honor of speaking before a national convention, is merely the result of being a "pawn" illustrates, sadly, that they don't believe a black person could have earned that honor based on talent, intellect, and hard work. They must be a tool and a fool because surely they aren't worthy is what their deluded, racist, and yes, insecure minds have told them. How sad. How very, very sad.

When discussing slavery with my seventh grade students throughout the years, I have often said:
The greatest tragedy of slavery is not what it caused others to believe about us (blacks). The greatest tragedy of slavery is what it caused us to believe about ourselves.

What a shame that while many struggled to secure the equal treatment and respect of blacks, many blacks just don't believe we deserve it.

Governor Palin Honors Sen. McCain, Fox Cancels Her Interviews

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Via Governor Palin's Facebook page:

I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight. Granted, our honored and esteemed war hero has gone through much more than the liberal media can ever do to him in their efforts to harm this patriot. I look forward to hearing his words to his fellow Americans tonight more than any of the other convention speeches. God bless John McCain. Thank you for everything. And happy birthday, my friend.

Liberals Call Mia Love a "House Nigger" After Her Rousing RNC Speech

This is what black conservatives go through. Mayor Mia Love, Congressional candidate from the state of Utah, is the newest target of the racist left who love to pretend the right is filled with racism. Love gave a rousing speech at the Republican National Convention last night, prompting the left to take to her Wikipedia page to call her a "worthless whore" and a "house nigger." I am never surprised by what the left does, especially to black people who have the unmitigated temerity to step off the government plantation called the Democratic party, but I will forever be disgusted by it.

Twitchy reports:

Tuesday night after rising GOP star Mia Love brought down the house with her inspiring convention speech, the stomach-turning Left labeled the black conservative a “token” and an “Aunt Tom.”

Meanwhile, revoltingly racist, woman-hating Wikipedia vandals were hard at work updating her entry with disgusting slurs like “House Nigger” and “dirty, worthless whore.” The page called her a “total sell-out to the Right Wing Hate machine and the greedy bigots who control the GOP.”

Click here for more, including tweets calling out this disturbing occurrence.

The hateful changes to Wikipedia have since been deleted. In fact, her page is now under construction, and it details why. A screen shot, however, was captured:


Again, this is yet another example of the kind of attacks to which black conservatives are subject. What has Mia Love done to deserve such racist and misogynistic epithets? She delivered a message of self-reliance, hard work, and success; she praised her family and her country; and she's a Republican. In other words, she is a threat to the left's message of perpetual dependence, and she dares to think on her own. We all know the left doesn't believe blacks are supposed to be able to think for themselves. But Republicans are the racists, right? Twitchy said it best: sick!

Mayor Love's speech is passionate, inspiring, and a sign of good things to come. My only complaint is that it is much too short. Enjoy:

Flashback: Gov. Palin Four Years Ago

Four years ago today, Senator John McCain announced a governor from the state of Alaska as his running mate. Sarah Palin electrified the base, gave the McCain campaign a huge boost, and drew enormous crowds. She also scared the living daylights out of the left--and still does.

Senator McCain did not manage a victory in 2008; however, his former running mate has not gone anywhere. She has been on the national stage ever since, fighting President Obama's unwanted "fundamental transformation of America," calling out the Republican establishment, endorsing and campaigning for common sense candidates, and working harder than anyone else to put this country back on solid footing.

Let's flash back to the day most of America was introduced to Governor Palin in Dayton, Ohio:

Video: Gov. Palin Talks to Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly at RNC; "Zealot" Comment; UPDATE: Hume Says the Word was "Salad"

Governor Palin spoke to Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly tonight after Ann Romney and Gov. Chris Christie spoke at the Republican National Convention. As is circulating online, at about 1:34 of the video, someone can be heard saying the word "zealot" as she is speaking. It's not just this video; it's on every video, which demonstrates it originates from Fox News. As others have indicated, this is utterly unbecoming, unprofessional, and unacceptable. A random guest deserves better, so surely a colleague deserves far better. I imagine Fox has heard by now that whoever said it was picked up on mic. I'm interested in seeing how they address this, if they have the courage and respect to do so at all.

UPDATE: Brit Hume has responded to questions about the "zealot" controversy. Many people, including yours truly, thought we heard the word zealot. It's even up on Drudge as such. However, Hume denies that. He tweeted:
@Bassmaster12 @Stacy_Drake This is almost comical. Mic picked up a snatch of an off-camera conversation I was having. The word was "salad."

I listened again with the word "salad" in mind. I take Brit Hume's word for it, and I apologize for jumping the gun.

Governor Palin: AZ Rally and RNC Rule Change Controversy

Via Facebook:

Had a great time today in Gilbert, Arizona, at a rally for Kirk Adams. It's very important to pay attention to these down ballot races like Kirk Adams, Jeff Flake, and Paul Gosar in Arizona. We have to remember that this election is not just about replacing the party in power. It's about who and what we replace it with. Grassroots conservatives know this. Without the energy and wisdom of the grassroots, the GOP would not have had the historic 2010 electoral victories. That's why the controversial rule change being debated at the RNC convention right now is so very disappointing. It's a direct attack on grassroots activists by the GOP establishment, and it must be rejected. Please follow the link to Michelle Malkin's article about this.

Here's the link to which she's referring. There are several updates to the article.

Governor Palin Skips RNC, Campaigns for Kirk Adams in AZ, Talks to Sean Hannity (Video)

Monday, August 27, 2012

Governor Palin is not in Tampa at the Republican National Convention, but she is out working hard for candidates, as she said she would be. Tonight, she was in Arizona with Kirk Adams and took a break to talk to Sean Hannity. Via SarahNET:




Via Stacy Drake, the media covered Governor Palin's involvement in the event:

The New York Times reports:
Sarah Palin spent the first day of the Republican National Convention serving baked beans and sliders at a barbecue joint here, in a last-minute campaign stop for Kirk Adams, a former state legislator who is vying for the Republican nomination in Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District race.

Not that it mattered why she was visiting.

“I don’t know who this Kirk person is,” said Jessica Flowers Cuff, 31, who lives in Gilbert. “It’s my day off; I wanted to see Sarah.”

Ms. Palin picked the location: Joe’s Farm Grill, which serves grilled American grub not far from an interstate highway. She had seen it featured on the Food Network series “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” said one of its owners, Tim Peelen.

[...]

Ms. Palin walked onto the stage to Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman,” and fired up the crowd by saying, “This election, folks, is not just about replacing the party that’s in power. It’s about who and what we’ll replace it with.”

“Kirk Adams will fight for you,” she continued. “He’ll fight for America; he’ll fight for our kids’ future.”

Ms. Palin has been fairly successful in her endorsements, which usually cut against the choices of the Republican Party establishment to support many of the same insurgent candidates embraced by her adoring base.

For Mr. Adams, her visit was “a huge deal,” and could not have come at a better time: a day before the state’s primaries.

Breaking Down Todd Akin and the GOP

I don't get the GOP. This isn't the first time, but it might be one of the most critical times. Everyone knows Todd Akin made a really stupid comment about what he termed "legitimate rape." Those two words should never be in the same sentence, much less next to each another. Akin has since apologized, but the damage has been done.

The only ones more eager than Democrats to throw him under the bus were Republicans. Why is that? Well, first of all, for obvious reasons. His statement that a woman's body has ways of shutting down when raped, preventing pregnancy from ensuing, was off the wall, ridiculous, and beyond defense. Rush Limbaugh might have uncovered the second reason when he said Republicans always want to be liked and always feel the need to prove themselves to the left, which seems to cause us to eat each other alive. We jump to avoid yet another accusation of being called anti-women, racist, extreme, or whatever other term we're afraid we'll be called if we don't separate ourselves from this statement or that one.

While Akin was wrong in his comment, he was not wrong in his pro-life position. He doesn't believe in abortion, even in the tragic situation of rape. I share his position. The problem was not in where he stands on the issue, though I concede many would disagree. The problem, as I see it, was his inability to articulate his position on the issue. Then we allowed Democrats to co-opt the conversation. Again, his error wasn't his pro-life position; his error was attaching rape to the word "legitimate." Rape is rape. Period.

Nonetheless, anyone who suggests that his comment reveals him to be placing blame on a woman for rape or validating skepticism about a woman's claims of being raped is being disingenuous. Everyone knows that is not what he meant. And no matter what anyone thinks of his term in office in Missouri or his record, no one should condone someone's character being destroyed unfairly, for that would simply be another case of politics-as-usual, which all fair-minded people despise.

Granted, there's an argument to be made for his getting out of the race, which has been the steady refrain from prominent voices in the GOP--from Governor Palin, to Presidential-candidate Romney, to RNC Chair Reince Priebus, and the list goes on. This election is a must-win. Claire McCaskill must go. The GOP must capture the Senate, and we don't have the luxury of nonchalantly approaching a win. To quote Sarah Steelman, who was one of Akin's challengers in the primary he just won on August 7th, "The status quo must go." Steelman is the candidate Governor Palin endorsed and the one I, in my own way, subsequently supported from the faraway blue state of New York.

What I respected about Palin's call for Akin to "take one for the team" and step aside for the sake of that Senate seat was that she didn't pile on Akin for what he said. In fact, she wouldn't even deal with what he said at all when Greta Van Susteren asked her about it. That train had already left the station, had been sized up over and over, and its fatuity already well-established. Instead, the Governor dealt with the impact of what he said. That's the issue remaining here. His words have given Democrats fodder, furthered the left's attack on the right's respect for women, and most importantly, given Claire McCaskill a good chance to win when it looked like her chances were all but gone. For that reason, Governor Palin implored him to drop out of the race. She did not attack his character, as many others have done and are doing. She simply said that for the sake of the country, he should do what she had to do in Alaska: pass the ball. Again, I respect her handling of the situation.

Many others in the GOP have not been so gracious. They've used this situation to go after his character and do what Democrats have been known to do: attack from all angles. Now, I agree that it would seem advantageous to the cause for Todd Akin to drop out of the race. However, he has said repeatedly that he will not do so. Whether he can pull out a win, especially when the GOP has pulled out its resources, remains to be seen. My question, however, is at what point will the party establishment stop demanding and demonizing, accept that he has made the decision--however unwise it may be--to stay in this thing, and put their support behind him. If, in fact, their beef with him is that he's costing us that Senate seat, why then would they refuse to give him every available opportunity to win, since he's said he won't get out? Refusing to do so is a clear indicator that they are more interested in something else other than winning. If winning is the only goal, then why won't they help him win? Are they punishing him for not getting out of the race? But who are they really punishing? As their pleas for him to step aside demonstrate that they want him to recognize that this is bigger than he, they must recognize also that this is bigger than they. This is about winning and righting the American ship. So if they can't convince the guy to back out, they should at least help him win--if the goal is defeating McCaskill.

That seems like such a common sense approach to me, so I assumed that if the GOP was still insisting he back out of the race after he has stated again--most recently via a press conference--that he's in it for the duration, they must be planning to keep the pressure on only until September 25, hoping that he'll come to his senses by then. That makes sense also. However, today the RNC Chair said he will not be supporting Akin at all, at any point--even if the race is close.

Via Red State:

The question is: “If he stays in, is your position eventually going to change? Are you going to have to support him? The Chairman replies “No, no. No. He could be tied. We’re not going to send him a penny.”

In other words, Priebus doesn't care if we lose the seat. Yet he accuses Akin of not caring if we lose the seat. Like I said in the open: I don't get the GOP. I reiterate, I'm not saying Akin should stay in. I'm saying that for whatever reason--and people have their own opinions of how honorable or dishonorable that reason is--he has stated he won't get out, and if he maintains that position post September 25th, somebody has to put the country first.

Perhaps Todd Akin will take Governor Palin's advice and come to acknowledge that it would be best for Missouri and for America to "take one for the team." However, if he never comes to that conclusion, somebody better make the decision that we need to do all we can to win this seat, and that will mean supporting Todd Akin, like it or not. And if the GOP big wigs don't put two and two together and come to that conclusion, whose fault will it really be when Claire McCaskill is still sitting in that seat after the election?

Gov. Palin Endorses Paul Gosar, AZ-4

Governor Palin has once again placed her support behind Paul Gosar in Arizona:

Paul Gosar for AZ-4

Dr. Paul Gosar is not a career politician. He's a dentist, a conservative, a small business owner, and someone I was proud to endorse in 2010. His accomplishments as a freshman congressman are remarkable and a shining example of what hardworking public service is all about.

You won't find Paul playing endless rounds of golf or hobnobbing at D.C. cocktail parties. When Congress isn't in session, you'll find him with the people he represents. In the past 18 months, he's held over 24 town halls and put over 60,000 miles on his old car traveling his district. And when he is not listening to the people he works for, he is with his wife Maude and his three kids, probably pulling weeds in his yard as he thinks of ways to shrink government and bring about the reform we need in Washington to secure a prosperous and fiscally responsible America for our children.

As a freshman congressman, he didn't just bide his time or go along to get along. He got down to work. Arizona's largest newspaper reviewed Paul's legislative accomplishments and concluded that “Bottom line: when it comes to sponsored bills and amendments passed by the House of Representatives, Gosar has been among the most successful new members not only in Arizona's delegation, but also in the entire freshman class." He's fought hard to eliminate wasteful spending, sponsoring one bill after another to repeal wasteful programs and save the taxpayers' money. He co-sponsored and voted for “Cut, Cap, and Balance," and he took a tough vote to cut $2.1 trillion from the bloated federal budget, which is the largest nominal spending cut since World War II.

He's been a leader on looking for ways to cut spending, and he's also been a staunch fighter for the people of Arizona. Along with Congressman Darrell Issa, Paul has been laser-like in pursuing the truth about the “Operation Fast and Furious" scandal, and Paul is the sponsor of a resolution of no confidence in Attorney General Holder. He's also defended the interests of Arizonans in taking on the Obama administration's over-reaching EPA bureaucrats.

I think you can see why he has the support of so many Arizonans – from Governor Jan Brewer to Senator Jon Kyl. I was proud to endorse Paul Gosar two years ago, and I believe he more than deserves to return to Congress to continue his good work for Arizona's new 4th Congressional District. I hope you'll join me in supporting Paul and donating and volunteering for him. This is one conservative public servant you can be certain will be working hard for you and getting positive results.

Video: Gov. Palin States Todd Akin Should Step Aside

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Governor Palin went On the Record with Greta Van Susteren tonight to discuss Todd Akin, who is being called on to withdraw from the U.S. Senate race in Missouri. His comments about abortion as it pertains to rape victims have jeopardized Republicans' chances to take over Claire McCaskill's seat--and she must go. The Governor was clear in stating she still supports Sarah Steelman, whom she endorsed over Akin.

Governor Palin Endorses Florida's Ted Yoho for Congress

Today, Governor Palin endorsed Ted Yoho for Congress: Via Politico:

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin endorsed veterinarian Ted Yoho in his bid for a House seat in Florida’s 3rd district on Tuesday.

“Underdog candidates like Ted aren't running because it’s easy, and they don't plan on going to Washington to just ‘go along to get along.’ No, these underdogs are running to fight for sudden and relentless reform and they know the hard work it will require to make it happen,” Palin said.

Yoho made national headlines last week when his campaign took out 24-year Congressman Cliff Stearns in Florida’s GOP primary. Stearns had held an enormous cash advantage over Yoho, and Yoho had never run for a political office but still managed to win with by the slimmest of margins.

“If you’ve had enough and are ready for some real reform that puts government back on our side, please join me in supporting Dr. Ted Yoho for Congress in FL-3. Let’s send this commonsense businessman to D.C. to fight for us. He won’t forget who sent him there,” she said.

Palin has endorsed a number of candidates this year, many of them who were facing competitive primaries and her support for Yoho comes after his primary. Her endorsement scorecard is mixed but most recently she had backed Sarah Steelman in Missouri’s Senate GOP primary, over John Brunner and Rep. Todd Akin. Akin, who is now facing calls from national Republicans to remove himself from the race, had won that primary.

[...]

“I’m honored that a strong conservative leader like Sarah Palin is backing my campaign and I cannot thank her enough for her endorsement. I admire Gov. Palin for her relentless passion to challenge the status quo and to advance the conservative cause,” Yoho said.

Governor Palin Endorses Dan Bongino for U.S. Senate (MD)

Monday, August 20, 2012

Dan Bongino's campaign is reporting an endorsement by Governor Palin for his candidacy to become the U.S. Senator from the state of Maryland. His press release states:

Severna Park, Maryland - Sarah Palin, former Vice-Presidential Nominee and Governor of Alaska, endorses Dan Bongino, candidate for U.S. Senate in Maryland.

Though political pundits often dismiss conservative candidates running in deep blue states, I don't believe in ignoring good candidates simply because they're fighting uphill battles against the odds. In fact, I find such candidates incredibly brave and especially worthy of encouragement. In many cases, they are often the most articulate and courageous new conservative voices out there.

In 2012, we must cede no ground in our effort to win back control of the Senate and secure the House. We must fight every race to make sure we equip our next President with a wise Congress ready to work for all Americans. We also owe it to voters in every state - even the deep blue ones - to support good candidates for office so that they have a genuine choice in November. That is why I'm honored to announce my support for Dan Bongino in his Senate race in the "deep blue state" of Maryland.

Dan is not a politician, but he has spent his career protecting them. He is a decorated United States Secret Service agent who served under three Presidents. Dan has seen what politicians have done to our country, and he's decided, "If I'm not part of the solution, I'm part of the problem." He based his candidacy for U.S. Senate in Maryland on a strong commonsense conservative platform, won his primary, and is now fighting an uphill battle against a 45-year career politician who in fact inherited his first political office from his uncle at the tender age of 23 way back in 1967 and has been in elected office ever since.

This is more than just a race of Republican vs. Democrat or conservative vs. liberal. It's about taking our country back from the career politicians in both parties who have spent us into debt, nearly taxed us to death, enriched themselves, rewarded their cronies at our expense, and have no vision to help the private sector create the jobs we need to get this economy moving again. They are the reason why Congress' approval rating is at an all-time low. In supporting Dan Bongino, we are offering Maryland voters a clear choice either to continue with the failed policies and crony capitalism of the permanent political class, or to shake things up with Dan Bongino and cast a vote that helps put our country back on the path to prosperity.

- Sarah Palin
As Dan Bongino challenges the powerful political-establishment in Maryland, he continues to look for the support and guidance of others that have faced and defeated entrenched, out-of-touch politicians.

"I am honored and grateful to receive Governor Palin's support. I sought the support of Governor Palin because she has a well-documented history of fighting against political insiders and establishment figures from both political parties driven by personal political aggrandizement rather than a desire to create a better tomorrow for our children," said Dan Bongino. "The citizens of Maryland have been subjected to the failed 'bureaucracy first' ideology of an entrenched political class for far too long. I am determined to bring both a middle-class perspective and value system back to an unresponsive class of insulated politicians. I am a political outsider and I have constructed my campaign around the idea that public office is a sacred trust placed in our elected officials by the citizenry. That sacred trust has been broken and I am making an ironclad promise to the citizens of Maryland to restore it."

GOP Establishment Could Learn From 'Stars Earn Stripes' Participants

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Despite all the false narratives about the Palins permeating the minds of people, due in large part to the media's agenda, the one-on-one encounters with Todd and Governor Palin always leave a lasting impression, and it's not the impression the lamestream media and the political left want people to receive.

Steve Flesher detailed here, as I did here, the response Todd Palin's Stars Earn Stripes co-star, Andrew McLaren, had upon spending time with Todd and the Governor. Though some of his friends are "shocked" that he has become good friends with the Palins, he stated that his view of them changed from the "vastly distorted" media image, and he went so far as to say, “Todd and Sarah Palin are the nicest people I have ever met." That's quite a compliment from someone who admits to disagreeing with them on some important issues. It also demonstrates a maturity that too many do not possess today, as they choose to cling to their bitter view--a false one--of the Palins.

Add The Biggest Loser trainer, Dolvett Quince, to the list of those who have now come face to face with the Palins and speak highly of them.

According to Access Atlanta:

Palin, he said, became a good friend. “He invited me to his home in Alaska,” said Quince, who came to the national scene last year when he joined “The Biggest Loser” as a coach. During the “Stars Earn Stripes” shoot, he got to meet Sarah. “Politics aside,” he said, “she’s a great person.”

The key seems to be an ability to set politics aside and get to see people for who they are, even when you do not agree on everything.

It seems that this reality show is much more reality than show, as it not only serves as a means to support our military and first responders, but brings together people whose separate paths may have never crossed otherwise. This endeavor to bring awareness to our nation's finest, raise money for a great cause, and push one's physical and mental capacities to the absolute limit has also served to stretch people beyond their usual ability to see what others try to block them from seeing. It has allowed people to view the Palins, in particular, without the faulty lens of the media's even faultier microscope. So much for the memes that the Palins cannot interact with people who do not share their political persuasions, do not share their racial backgrounds, or do not share their particular ideologies. What remains, unfortunately, is the intolerance with which the Palins are too often treated by others, the constant attacks on their character, and the denial that they have always respected others' rights to have their own perspectives, even when they differ from their own.

I respect that Andrew McLaren and Dolvett Quince have allowed themselves to see the Palins for who they are and have acknowledged what they have discovered. Now if only the GOP Establishment would follow in the footsteps of these Stars Earn Stripes participants, set aside their own fears which hinder them from celebrating the gifts that Governor Palin brings to the table, and utilize those gifts for the benefit of the country, we could praise their maturity as well.

Via The Miami Herald, Col. West joined Governor Palin in endorsing Sandy Adams:
Orlando, FL – Freshman Sandy Adams is proud to announce the endorsement today of fellow Florida freshman, Allen West. Together, West and Adams came to Congress in 2010 to fix what is broken in Washington, D.C. West joins former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, and America's Toughest Sheriff Joe Arpaio, in supporting Sandy Adams over 20-year Washington insider John Mica.

West touted Adams’ patriotism and her ability to change the way Washington works in his endorsement statement:

“Two years ago, the citizens of Florida called for a change in the way things were going in our Nation’s Capital. Sandy Adams and I went to the United States House of Representatives to work to get our Republic back on track. We quickly learned the problems were deeper and there were some entrenched careerist politicians who supported the status-quo.

“These last two years, Sandy has been fighting to change the ways of Washington. She is a patriot with regard to preserving and protecting our nation and our Constitution. I fully endorse Sandy Adams candidacy for the 7th Congressional District because she represents a new generation of Republican Conservatives who have come to the Halls of Congress to find solutions and is working tireless against some on Capitol Hill who would rather perpetuate the problems.”

Greta Wire: Statement From Governor Palin about the Republican Convention

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Greta Van Susteren shared a statement from Governor Palin concerning the Republican National Convention. Many are reading it to state that she will definitely not be speaking there, although the part quoted by Greta does not say that specifically. I'll just post it as it appeared on Greta Wire:

…Everything I said at the 2008 convention about then-candidate Obama still stands today, and in fact the predictions made about the very unqualified and inexperienced Community Organizer’s plans to “fundamentally transform” our country are unfortunately coming true. This year is a good opportunity for other voices to speak at the convention and I’m excited to hear them. As I’ve repeatedly said, I support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in their efforts to replace President Obama at the ballot box, and I intend to focus on grassroots efforts to rally Independents and the GOP base to elect Senate and House members so a wise Congress is ready to work with our new President to get our country back on the right path. This is imperative. As President Clinton said in 2008 while candidate Obama and lapdogs in the media were thrashing his wife’s record and reputation, this is “…the biggest fairy tale.” For the sake of America’s solvency and sovereignty we must close this nonsensical book in November…- Sarah Palin

Governor Palin Congratulates Romney on VP Choice; Decries President Obama's Vision

Via Facebook:

Congratulations to Mitt Romney on his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate. President Obama has declared that this election is about “two fundamentally different visions” for America. Goodness, he’s got that right. Our country cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama’s fundamentally flawed vision. We must now look to this new team, the Romney/Ryan ticket, to provide an alternate vision of an America that is fiscally responsible, strong, and prosperous – an America that understands and is proud of her exceptional place in the world and will respect those who fight to secure that exceptionalism, which includes keeping our promises to our veterans.

When I think about the direction our country is rapidly drifting in, I can’t help but look at California as a cautionary tale. The Golden State once boasted the entrepreneurial innovation of Silicon Valley, the American creative engine of the arts, economically powerful and beautiful cities from San Francisco to San Diego, and fertile farmlands that helped feed the nation. Now it is descending into financial ruin accompanied by an exodus of middle class Californians leaving for other states. As one writer put it, California’s “fastest-growing entity is government and its biggest product is red tape.”

Obama’s vision for America will make the rest of the country look like California, minus the beautiful scenery and warm weather.

Obama’s America is today’s California – complete with $100 billion taxpayer funded bullet trains to nowhere; out of control environmental extremists who have destroyed family farms and left some of the most fertile farm land in America fallow in order to protect a three inch fish; permanent high unemployment; government policies hostile to small business job creators; crippling high taxes; an abysmal real estate market; bloated government that wastes taxpayer money; endless budget shortfalls due to massive unfunded liabilities; city after city declaring bankruptcy; and a state government run by, in the words of one Wall Street Journal writer, “a brothel of environmentalists, lawyers, public-sector unions and legislative bums.”

We can’t afford Obama’s vision. Our children can’t afford it. Today we are over $15 trillion in debt and running up trillion dollar budget deficits year after year for as far as the eye can see. And our “leaders” have no plan to stop it! President Obama and this Congress don’t even have the fundamental blueprint—a budget!—to outline where they intend to take us as they merrily roll along with their out of control spending and constant increases of our debt “limit.” Our debt to China alone is more than we can ever hope to pay off in multiple generations. Such debt and dependence on foreign nations weakens us in countless ways. And yet our government keeps on spending despite the risks and despite conscientious, hardworking citizens telling them to just stop it. Our debt is growing by $3 million per minute. This debt, in conjunction with Obama’s massive government over-reaches like Obamacare, has strangled the private sector, which in turn has stifled job growth and slowed all economic growth. The only way to get our country moving again is to get back to basics like normal people do with our home and small business budgets! That means we must live within our means, get government out of the way of our job creators, develop the God-given natural resources we have been blessed with to provide real jobs and real energy security, and stop growing government and wasting taxpayer money on D.C. cronyism and useless stimulus kick-backs for favored donors.

Barack Obama’s record is one of dismal failure, which is why he isn’t talking about it. He would rather spend his time demonizing his opponents. The simple fact remains that Mitt Romney is not responsible for the dire state of our economy or the corruption and incompetence of the current administration.

Over the next 86 days, Barack Obama will try to distract us from his record. Many in the media will roll along with him in this mission. We must not let them continue the deception and distractions, and we must not be afraid to call the President out on his lies. His entire record in office exposes the false promises he made four years ago. So, let’s take a moment to remember what candidate Obama said just four short years ago.

Candidate Obama promised us fiscal prudence. But President Obama’s reckless spending and lack of fiscal leadership has led to the downgrading of our nation’s credit rating for the first time in history.

Candidate Obama decried reckless spending and promised to cut the deficit. But President Obama and those in Congress who control the purse strings and “go along to get along” have tripled it. President Obama’s proposed budget was so absurdly and wildly irresponsible that not one member of Congress, Republican or Democrat, voted in favor of it. And yet the Democrat controlled Senate still refuses to pass a budget itself, and this refusal has been going on for years now. That is irresponsible and, much more, it’s unconstitutional.

Candidate Obama promised us a “smarter government,” but President Obama has created a government that’s not too big to fail, but too big to succeed.

Candidate Obama promised us a plan for American energy independence. But President Obama has forced American taxpayers to subsidize bankrupt green energy companies with ties to his campaign donors. And when it comes to the energy we actually use to fuel our economy, President Obama’s administration blocks drilling and drags its feet on the permitting process. Meanwhile, he supports foreign energy developments, but not American made energy development. His administration opposes everything from drilling in ANWR to building the Keystone Pipeline to coal plants, but he’s all for subsidizing offshore drilling in Brazil and sitting back on his thumb while China moves in to pursue oil deals with Canada because his administration blocked responsible energy infrastructure development.

Candidate Obama promised us “the most transparent administration in history.” But in addition to refusing FOIA-requested documents, President Obama’s administration regularly holds meetings outside the White House and off the official White House visitor list with lobbyists and corporate interests they don’t want us to know about.

Candidate Obama promised to unite all America, but President Obama has cynically divided us again and again in his efforts to win reelection by playing identity politics and class warfare and pitting one group against another.

Candidate Obama promised us a “fundamentally transformed” America, and that is the only promise he’s delivered on. We can see now what his idea of “hope” is. Now we want change. He has failed to lead, so We the People must lead. And our leadership starts at the ballot box on November 6th.

Please continue to focus on the presidential race and on helping Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, but it’s also imperative that we get involved in the nation’s important House and Senate races. These candidates need our help to ensure that our next president has a responsible and ethical Congress that actually gets things done for America. Now on to November!

Gov. Palin: Join Me in Supporting Sandy Adams

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Via Facebook:

In 2012, we have a unique opportunity to elect more commonsense conservatives to Congress, but that alone is not enough. We must support conservatives who are with us on the issues but not weighed down with the burden of crony capitalism that is so prevalent in Washington, D.C. Congresswoman Sandy Adams is just one of those candidates. She is running in Florida’s 7th Congressional District; and unlike her opponent, Sandy is free from the shackles of lobbyists and back door dealings in Washington. As someone who served in the military and as a career law enforcement officer, Sandy doesn’t have time or the patience for the business as usual ways of Washington. Washington insiders on both sides of the aisle have spent this country into massive debt and put our children’s future at risk. Let’s restore power to the people by electing a wise Congress that our next President can work with. Please join me and others like Congressman Allen West, Condi Rice, and Tea Party Express in supporting Sandy Adams today.

Gov. Palin Congratulates Todd Akin (MO)

Via Facebook:

Congratulations to Todd Akin on his win. And thank you, Sarah Steelman, for running an inspiring grassroots campaign. Sarah can take pride in being the underdog and mounting an uphill race; she faced the challenge of Beltway insiders and being outspent and underfunded, but she did not waver and her internal compass always pointed clearly in the direction of Constitutional principles. It’s an honor to stand by Sarah and her vision for Missouri and the rest of this exceptional nation. I’ll continue to support those with such a compass, regardless of the Beltway political pundits’ predictions in any race.

Now, it’s time for everyone to come together and focus on electing a new Senator from the Show Me State. Winning this Missouri Senate race is a crucial step in reclaiming the leadership of the U.S. Senate and giving our next President a wise Congress to work with. Together we can do this. On to November!

Help Sandy Adams Help US

Sandy Adams needs your help in her campaign for U.S. Congress. Her character and record earned her the endorsement of Governor Palin, both in 2010 and in this election.

Concerning the 2010 endorsement:

Adams was endorsed by Gov. Palin in her race against an incumbent Democrat in 2010, and that support helped contribute to a 20 point win in November. At the beginning of this election, Adams approached Palin about continuing that support in her race for re-election.

Governor Palin's 2012 endorsement states:
In 2012, we have a unique opportunity to elect more commonsense conservatives to Congress, but that alone is not enough. We must support conservatives who are with us on the issues but not weighed down with the burden of crony capitalism that is so prevalent in Washington, D.C.

Please join me in supporting Sandy Adams today.

Sandy Adams has a record of service as a member of the Air Force, a deputy sheriff, a Florida State Representative, and a member of Congress. Now we have the opportunity to help her via a money bomb.

Governor Palin, Bristol Palin, and Traditional Marriage

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

Governor Palin, via Facebook:

Bristol makes such an important point in this post! Being in favor of the traditional definition of marriage doesn't mean a person hates gay people or is expected to shy away from candidly answering what their opinion is on something like marriage. Since when has our nation been anything but an exceptional nation that prides itself on the right of expressing personal opinion under the First Amendment and continuing to build our culture on a melting pot of diversity. Need we remind people that leaders like Barack Obama and Joe Biden held the exact same position as Bristol does in favor of traditional marriage just a few short months ago, yet were never called "haters" of anyone.

The press has certainly been very insistent – in fact brutal – in questioning Bristol about whether she'd have a problem dancing with a gay partner on DWTS this fall (this was ramped up after she posted a picture of Todd and me recently enjoying Chick-Fil-A), and some yellow journalists even ginned up a false controversy claiming her 3-year-old son Tripp used an anti-gay slur word which he never used. She answered the question clearly and elaborated on it with this blog post, yet – and this is fascinating – the piece was met with crickets from the liberal media because it just doesn't fit into their false narrative about her. That's a shame, and they're a shame, because she explained herself very clearly here.

Read Bristol's post here. It's quite good.

Bristol and her mom have both shared a powerful truth: those who themselves have no respect for other people's viewpoints assume everyone who disagrees is full of hate. You know, sometimes people just don't agree--and we can love, even in the midst of a disagreement that is deep, far, and wide.

Let me add this: Christians do not have to sacrifice their Christians beliefs on the altar of liberalism, political correctness, or pressure. Christians can be true to their most deeply held beliefs--and we shall.

Missouri, Sarah Steelman for U.S. Senate, Ellen Brandom for State Senate

Today is Missouri Primary Election Day! Why, as a New Yorker, am I so interested in this particular election? Missouri is like a second home to me, as I spend so much time there. I spent the beginning of this summer in Missouri knocking doors, hammering yard signs, and going to campaign events with my friend Kristi King, who is the Cape County Coordinator for Ellen Brandom who is running for State Senate. Missourians in Brandom's district, vote for this common sense conservative today!

Today is also the day to elect Sarah Steelman for U.S. Senate. Steelman has received the endorsement of Governor Palin who sees a lot of Sarah in herself--not just her name, either. Get to the polls today and make the right decision for a fighter who will work to reform Washington. That's Sarah Steelman! As Steelman says, "The status quo must go," which means Claire McCaskill must go. So vote Steelman!

Heaths Launch Facebook Page for 'Our Sarah: Made in Alaska'


The response to the request for book tour locations for the release of Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, co-authored by Governor Palin's father and brother, has been overwhelming. Your suggestions are very much appreciated as the Heaths engage in planning--with great anticipation--the book signings. Their travels will allow them to meet and thank many of you and to share the book that will give everyone an even closer look into the life of Governor Palin.

As promised, they have launched a Facebook page, which is an excellent tool to keep you in the loop and provide an opportunity for you to converse about this exciting project.

Please visit the page here, and don't forget to "like" it as well. Pass the word on to others, and let's do our best to make sure their Facebook numbers skyrocket.

Many books have been written about Governor Palin--who she is, what she values, those who have influenced her life. No doubt, many of us have read a few ourselves. However, this is the book to read, as it is written by two of the closest people to her, two people with no hidden agenda, no ax to grind, and no false narrative to further. Though there have certainly been books that have demonstrated the Governor's true record and integrity, Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. are unique in that they know her. With that knowledge they present to us the person they have the experience to call "Our Sarah." They also present us with the opportunity to stay up-to-date via Facebook. Go check it out--and "like" it.

Remember, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska is set to hit the shelves on September 25th, but you can pre-order it here, here, here, and here.

Governor Palin in Iowa

Sunday, August 5, 2012

Governor Palin left Nebraska Saturday and headed for Iowa. According to the Des Moines Register, she attended a summer party at Bruce Rastetter’s home:

Sarah Palin is in Iowa tonight, attending agribusiness leader Bruce Rastetter’s summer party at his home in Hubbard in north-central Iowa.

The invitation for the event promises music, the presentation of a philanthropy award and “special guests” but doesn’t mention Palin, the darling of many conservatives, especially in the tea party, after her 2008 vice presidential run and subsequent media and political stardom.

Rastetter is a prominent donor to Republican causes...

Governor Palin Visits Deb Fischer in Nebraska

Saturday, August 4, 2012


Governor Palin was in Missouri yesterday and Nebraska today. Next stop...Iowa.

In Nebraska, the Governor spent time with Deb Fischer, the candidate she endorsed in the U.S. Senate race.

Via the Omaha World-Herald:
Sarah Palin heaped praise Saturday on Deb Fischer, the Republican running against Bob Kerrey for one of Nebraska's seats in the U.S. Senate.

Palin had just eaten lunch with Fischer and was taking a look at items in the La Vista Cabela's, talking with a couple customers and signing a man's cap.

She called Fischer a “hard-working, very grounded, down-to-earth, patriotic American woman.”

Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate four years ago, said that as a Nebraskan, Fischer knows agriculture and could “help common-sense, constitutional Americans.”

“We need more of that when it comes to regulation and policy,” Palin said of Fischer's background and knowledge.

Palin then boarded a sport utility vehicle and headed for Iowa with her husband, Todd.

Governor Palin is humble enough to allow others to engage in debate about who's speaking at the Republican National Convention. While members of the establishment play that inside baseball they're so fond of, she continues to make an impact from the outside--unshackled. She's working hard to do what she has vowed to do: help elect common sense conservatives so we can win the Senate, retain the House, and restore wisdom to the White House.

Steelman Campaign Praises Governor Palin's Endorsement Influence

Via a press release about the Steelman Surge Barbecue and Picnic held yesterday near Kansas City, MO, Sarah Steelman's campaign shared the impact that Governor Palin's endorsement has had (emphasis added):

Rolla, MO -- Governor Sarah Palin addressed one thousand people at the Steelman Surge BBQ at The Berry Patch in Cleveland, Missouri (pop. 592) yesterday, despite the heat and short notice. Gov. Palin emphasized that Steelman was the only candidate who had the backbone to do what's right and stand up to the establishment and special interests that lurk in Washington, DC, stating, “She’s the candidate in this race who scares them because she won’t go to Washington to just go along, to get along. You have that choice to choose, results over rhetoric. Convictions over consultants and Missouri over Washington.”

Governor Palin pointed to Steelman's conservative record and her ability to follow through with commitments, some of which can be found here: http://www.sarahsteelman.com/pages/sarahs-contract-with-missouri . Among the legislative items Steelman commits to sponsoring or cosponsoring are a balanced budget amendment, a cap on federal spending, repealing Obamacare and protecting life and liberty.

"A lot of candidates talk in vague terms about their plans and refuse to give specific details about how they'd vote or what they'd do. But that isn't good enough anymore. From the beginning of this campaign I have offered details about what Washington programs I'd cut and what legislation I'd sponsor or support. This contract offers voters a clear vision; it is a check list and is something they can use to measure my performance," declared Steelman.

The BBQ was advertised as a way for the Steelman campaign to thank supporters and lasted past its allotted time due to the overwhelming response. Steelman and Palin stood side by side serving BBQ to close to 1000 supporters. Since Governor Palin's endorsement, the campaign has seen an overwhelming increase in fundraising, website visits, calls to the office and, most importantly, the recent surge in the polls. This, coupled with Brunner's collapse, proves that an endorsement from Governor Palin has a powerful impact.

Polling shows about 20% of voters still undecided, however the recent surge in the polls has shown that Palin's voice and presence has the ability to rise above other political advertising and reach the undecided voters in an already saturated race.

"I'm grateful for Gov. Palin's endorsement," said Steelman, "She knows what it takes to fight for what's right in politics, and that is why she can relate to me. She knows that I have a history of standing up to the powerful and not backing down. She knows that I'll continue to be a fighter for what this country needs: a balanced budget, less spending and a greater respect for life and freedom."

Governor Palin Endorses Kirk Adams for Congress, AZ

Friday, August 3, 2012

Governor Palin has endorsed Arizona's Kirk Adams for Congress. Via Facebook:

Kirk Adams for Arizona's 5th Congressional District

If you believe strongly in the need to repeal Obamacare, I hope you’ll join me in supporting Kirk Adams for Congress in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District. Kirk is determined to repeal this mother of all unfunded mandates. And when he gets to Washington he won’t just “join the fight” to repeal Obamacare, he’ll help lead it.

As one of the youngest Speakers in the history of the Arizona House of Representatives, Kirk led the fight for less government spending, lower taxes, individual freedom, and limited government. As a small businessman, he knows firsthand that entrepreneurship and small businesses (which many of us built ourselves, Mr. President) are the job creating engine of our economy. Kirk is a proven advocate of removing the crushing burdens of excessive government regulation on our small businesses, and in Congress he will fight to put government back on our side and not in our way.

Kirk has been a steadfast supporter of sound immigration laws and was a leading defender of Arizona citizens as he used his platform to accurately describe this state’s predicament to the rest of America. He was the one who helped us all understand how dangerously misguided President Obama is on state’s rights and the rule of law! When President Obama called Arizona’s law “misguided” and then far removed politicians urged a “boycott” of Arizona, Kirk boldly stood up for his state! He became a loud and proud voice against the unsuccessful boycotts as he passionately wrote here:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/27/AR2010052702527.html

His tireless efforts worked.

Please join me in supporting Kirk Adams for Congress today.

–Sarah Palin

Via Sarah Steelman's website, here's the Campaign Release:

Kansas City, MO- Governor Sarah Palin will be coming into the Show-Me State this Friday, August 3rd, to help Sarah Steelman finish the final days of the primary with a “Steelman Surge” BBQ and Picnic.

“I am so grateful to have Governor Palin’s support, and very excited to say she will be coming into Missouri to participate in this BBQ. I know she will excite folks to come out and take a strong stand against the status quo. I thank Governor Palin for the conservative leadership she always shows, and I want to thank each and every individual for the help they have given to me over the course of this campaign,” said Steelman, “The Steelman Surge is underway and I invite everyone to attend this event and help to continue our tidal wave of momentum.”

The BBQ is set to start at 6:00 pm and will be held at The Berry Patch, a “you pick” blueberry farm just south of Kansas City. Steelman and Palin will be serving the food as a way of saying thank you for all the support and encouraging people to get out and vote. Accompanied with the food will be refreshments, live music and several other local candidates.

“This is a way of saying thank you for all the folks who have been supportive of me and also to remind them that this battle isn’t over--we have to buckle down for the finish,” Steelman concluded.

How I'm Celebrating Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day

Today, on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, I join so many other freedom-loving Americans who celebrate a company with a history of good food, excellent service, and compassionate philanthropy.

Join me in being a blessing to this business that refuses to bow to the thuggery of bullies who feel justified in threatening religious freedoms and stifling job creation at a time of economic woe. I stand with those, like Chick-fil-A, who stand for traditional marriage and the First Amendment.

Many of you are packing Chick-fil-A restaurants throughout the nation today. In fact, my friend Kristi King shared that traffic is so backed up near the restaurant in Cape Girardeau, Missouri that police are directing traffic and the media are on hand. Also, people are waving signs in their support of the business. Awesome! Since New York doesn't have a Chick-fil-A, I'm showing my support another way. I just went to their website and ordered some merchandise--a T-shirt for me and a hat for a friend.

If you want to place an order, go here. Here are my purchases:



God bless.

Palin-Endorsed Martha Zoller Headed to Georgia Runoff

In addition to the huge Ted Cruz victory in Texas last night, another Palin endorsee enjoyed a measure of success. Martha Zoller is headed to a run-off next month against State Representative Doug Collins.

The Sacramento Bee reports:

A heated race for the Republican nomination for Congress in a new north Georgia district will advance to a runoff next month.

State Rep. Doug Collins of Gainesville and conservative talk radio host Martha Zoller were the top finishers in a three-way primary election Tuesday in Georgia's 9th District. But neither got more than 50 percent of the vote, meaning voters will decide the winner in a runoff Aug. 21.
