Tribute to Aunt Mary

Saturday, October 27, 2012

Aunt Mary passed away eight days ago, on October 19th, but her spirit lives on. She helped raise me, and I know that without her in my life, I would not be the person I am today. At her funeral last Tuesday, I shared my reflections. This is my tribute to the life of someone who had a tremendous impact on my life:

I’m honored to represent my family—the Rosses and Millers—to give remarks about my aunt Mary.

I told Aunt Alma there was no way I could reflect effectively on Aunt Mary in 2 minutes, and she assured me that those two minutes do not apply to me, so I’m going to take my liberty, and you can blame her for the extra time that I take.

Actually, there is no amount of time I could be allotted that would be ample to do justice to who my aunt was and what she instilled in my life—in the lives of so many—but to my life in particular. I’m convinced that whatever I am, whatever I am to become, I owe to those who have left an imprint on my life: my parents, yes, who gave me life; my Aunt Alma, too, who enriched that life, and Aunt Mary who refined, and one might even say, defined, my life. The story I’ve been told is that when I was born she told my mom, “Name her Adrienne because she’s going to be a school teacher,” which of course came to pass. I tried to run from it then, and still I’m trying to run from it, but here I am. I’m not sure what connection she saw between my name and what has become my profession, but clearly she spoke something into my life that came to pass, which is a lesson in and of itself about the power of the words that we speak. And she never let me say no when asked to do something in the church. That, too, was God’s will. For so many reasons, and in so many ways, Aunt Mary left an indelible mark upon my life.

Her impact for me was unique in that it spanned some of the most vital years in my development—beginning prior to and into my formative years. She shaped my values, solidifying a faith in Christ that would not be shaken. She taught me what it is to respect my elders, to value of an education, and to work hard—and I got to see the fruit that hard work yields by watching her life and benefitting from that life. I’m not sure if I totally understood this as a child, but as an adult looking back, I realize that she epitomized the spirit of parenthood, and what I mean by that is all good parents want their children to go farther, soar higher, achieve greater than they ever did. And that’s what she wanted for us—for her son Bennie, for her sister, her brother, my sister, my brothers, for me. She wanted us to have a better education than she ever had—even if she had to beat it into us! And often she did! She didn’t want us to have to do the kinds of jobs that she willingly did to make a living and provide a very good lifestyle. Whenever I talk about my upbringing, I always say she and my Uncle Cleveland blessed us with the beautiful house, with the white picket fence, and the two dogs in the yard.

With all she managed to teach me, there were things she tried to teach me that I wasn’t interested in learning and now wished that I had paid better attention to: I know this is small, but I remember so well something she repeatedly said: “A lady always carries tissues in her pocketbook.” I never got the message. #1: I hardly ever carry a pocketbook, and #2: You’d be hard-pressed to find tissues in there if I did. I won’t ask how many of you qualify right now, based on that definition! We’ll leave that alone! But there were various lessons she wanted me to get that I was too stubborn to latch on to: She took care of a house like no one else could, she was a gracious hostess, she was a phenomenal cook, and a classier, jazzier dresser never existed. She personified style, and some of us wish we could look as good in a hat on our best day as she looks in hers—right now!

But the truth of the matter is what the Bible teaches us—that a man's life consists not in the abundance of the things which he possesses. And as much as Aunt Mary enjoyed her share of things, she understood what really mattered. People matter. Loving people matters. Now, she was not perfect. Was she stern? Yes! Could she speak her mind? Yes! Could she put you in your place without uttering a word—with just one look? Do I even have to ask?! But she also possessed something that is so unique—and sadly, it’s growing increasingly unique: She had a servant’s heart. She spent her life taking care of others, raising children who weren’t even her own, nurturing people who needed her care. Hers was a life of true sacrifice. There were times when we clashed, times when I thought she was too strict. She was! But I couldn’t deny the servant’s heart. I may not have known then to call it that, but that’s what it was. Some of us talk about it; she lived it. She didn’t have to do it. She chose to do it. There had to be times when she didn’t want to do it—she was human, after all. But she did it—and I am who I am because she did it. I cannot even fathom where I’d be without her. God is God, and He knows how to get things done, but one thing I’ve learned in this life is that God uses people, and He used her.

Aunt Mary’s life was a success. Too often we measure success by man’s definition of success, and although by man’s standards even she did pretty well, the truth is we must measure our lives by God’s measuring stick. Therefore, I define success as fulfilling the purpose for which God called us, and I believe with all my heart that she fulfilled that purpose. I believe with all my heart, her life was an epic success. When you look at her sister, you see her success; when you look at my siblings, you see her success; when you look at me, you see her success. Therefore, she yet lives. She has left a legacy that will not die.

About the end of her life on earth: I spent nearly every weekend with Aunt Mary over the last year, and as difficult as those times were, they were, oddly, some of the most precious times God allowed me to have. It was a season of personal healing and bonding; it gave me a chance to sing to her, to pray with her, to read the Word to her, and very often just to sit there quietly. It allowed me an opportunity to say to her some of what I’m saying to you about her—to thank her for what she instilled in me and to tell her that I am who I am because she was who she was. It was a year of stretching and seeing God take a person beyond her own capability. I experienced that. I grew up in the past year. Who would’ve thought as an adult she was still growing me up. I thank God for the opportunity. Some people don’t get that opportunity. It is something I will always cherish, and I know we made the right decision as a family, in spite of what the doctors thought a year ago. God had a plan—and He worked it as only He can. I can’t say I understand it all, because I don’t, but I trust Him.

As I end, I just have to say this because I have to praise God for how awesome He is: Over the past several years, I saw Aunt Mary weaken and my Aunt Alma take care of her, to a degree of commitment that is unparalleled, by the way. Aunt Mary was no longer the strong, independent, feisty person I had known all my life. She became weak and, at times, forgetful, and definitely more passive—although I do remember the time Aunt Alma had to go somewhere and I tried to get Aunt Mary to do what she was supposed to do, and—knowing her sister was not there—almost immediately after Aunt Alma left, she just looked at me and told me what she was going to do and asked what I was going to do about it! I did the best I could to make her do right, but she had already had me sized up as easy pickings and she knew she had already won. She knew who she was dealing with, and I didn’t stand a chance! But it was not easy watching her turn into a shell of her former self over the last few years.

But let me tell you how good God is: He allowed me to see something incredibly rare: Although I saw her weaken over the years, in the last year, I saw just the reverse. Most people don’t get to see people get stronger in the last year of their lives, but that’s exactly what I saw. After her cardiac arrest, when doctors didn’t think she would make it, I saw miracle after miracle. I saw someone who wasn’t awake at first, then later awake but unresponsive. I saw someone who couldn’t even track you with her eyes—so much so that my sister and I wondered aloud if she could actually see. You’d wave your hands in front of her—and there seemed to be nothing. But over time, I saw her become more and more alert. She began to track with her eyes and follow you around the room with her eye—nosey as she had always been! You’d put a pen in her hand and give her paper, and she’d move her hands and write on that paper. She’d try to speak. She’d grab your hand and over time really grab tighter and tighter. She’d pull you to her. The last weekend with her—the weekend of her 80th birthday—I was playing with her with one of the balls she’d hold in her hands, and I kept making her reach for it to get it from me. She kept reaching and reaching to take it from me. Whereas previously she would do nothing but sleep, it got to the point over time where she was awake for so long, you’d want her to go to sleep so you could leave before 11:00 at night! Before my very eyes, in the last year of her life, she gained strength, gained awareness, and made improvements that caused staff at the nursing home and hospital, and anyone else who had seen her over time, to comment about it. How often does one get to see someone stronger in the last year of her life than she was a year prior? But that’s exactly what happened to her. God allowed me to see miracle after miracle after miracle, and I thank Him for every moment of this past year—where He was steadily strengthening her, and sustaining her, and still using her! He is a miracle working God!

Aunt Mary may have departed this life, but her legacy lives on. It lives on in the lives of so many, and it lives on in me. I don’t know if I’ll ever have the servant’s heart that she had, but even if I possess a modicum of that servant’s heart she carried throughout her life, I will be a much better person—and even then it won’t be because of anything I could ever have been on my own. It’ll be because of the grace of God, and because of those who have poured into my life—and among the most prominent of those individuals is my aunt, Mary Miller.


New Obama Ad Compares First-Time Vote with First-Time Sex

I'm almost speechless. The Obama administration uses a first-time sexual encounter ad to get votes? You've got to be kidding me. Vile...


Governor Palin: These Questions Need Answers

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Governor Palin, via Facebook:

There are many questions about the Benghazi attack that Americans deserve answers to. It’s been too long an “investigation” and too tragic for the families of lost loved ones for the White House and its friends in the media to ignore these questions:

- When and why did the YouTube trailer of the anti-Muhammad movie surface as any kind of credible reason for the attack?

- Where is the proof that that video was linked to Benghazi? It’s a weak excuse to claim some supposed rumored link between Benghazi and the attacks on our embassy in Cairo. Benghazi was very different. “Spontaneous” protestors don’t come armed with rocket-propelled grenades.

- What was the President’s response to the previous Benghazi embassy attacks in April and June? Why did officials ignore the requests for beefed up security to protect Americans after these attacks?

- Why did the Obama Administration assume a YouTube video was the reason for the Benghazi attack but not all the evidence to the contrary from the postings and emails that circulated that night in real time as the attack took place and Americans were being killed? And why weren’t those emails disclosed until this week?

- Why did the Obama administration spend our tax dollars to make and air television ads that ran in the Middle East apologizing for the YouTube video when they had so much credible evidence that it was nothing but a red herring?

- How much did President Obama know about this? In an interview he gave to CBS News on September 12, President Obama alluded to the fact that the Benghazi attack was not—as his U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials were characterizing it—a “spontaneous” protest triggered by the Cairo embassy attack and the video. He told CBS News in that interview, “my suspicion is that there are folks involved in [the Benghazi attack] who were looking to target Americans from the start.” If he suspected this then why did he allow his administration to continue blaming the attack on the YouTube video? And why didn’t CBS News call him out on this when his comments in their interview with him, which they didn’t air until a month later, belie the administration’s YouTube narrative?

Someone in the media must demand answers. Until the media does its job to give us the Who What Where When and Why of this cover-up, there will be even less trust for this “cornerstone of our democracy” – if less trust and respect for the media is even possible today. We sincerely want to be able to trust the media. We need to be able to trust them. Their job is so important, and we appreciate all the good journalists in America. Our troops fight to protect all our freedoms including the freedom of the press.

Governor Palin's 'Shuck and Jive' Comment Labeled Racist; She Responds

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Earlier today, Governor Palin spoke out against President Obama's dealings with the American people as pertains to Benghazi. She wrote on Facebook:

Obama's Shuck and Jive Ends With Benghazi Lies

As I mentioned on “On the Record” last night, there is breaking news that just two hours after the September 11th attacks on our consulate in Benghazi, the White House and State Department knew that an Islamic terrorist group with ties to al Qaeda claimed credit for the attack. We now know that the State Department sent an email to the White House, the Pentagon, the FBI and others in the intelligence community about this Islamist group claiming responsibility. And yet for days afterwards the White House and State Department led everyone to believe that the attack was the result of a spontaneous protest over an obscure YouTube video that had been uploaded months prior. Anywhere from 300 to 400 people from the administration and our intelligence community would have seen that email. Why the lies? Why the cover up? Why the dissembling about the cause of the murder of our ambassador on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil? We deserve answers to this. President Obama's shuck and jive shtick with these Benghazi lies must end.

- Sarah Palin

Believe it or not, her use of the term "shuck and jive" earned her the racist accusation. No, I'm serious. This ridiculousness is becoming, well, even more ridiculous. You can take a head-first dive into the pile of crap by reading articles here and here.

Instead of remaining silent on this charge of racism, I'm glad the Governor has fought back, pointing out the left's hypocrisy, for they have used the phrase themselves. It takes a lot of nerve to call someone else a racist for using a term you yourself, and those on your side of the aisle, have used. The Governor tweets (numbers added):
Looks like Chris Matthews is a racist.
Looks like Andrew Cuomo is also a racist.
Uh oh. Looks like Jay Carney is a racist too.

The Governor then posted the following on Facebook:
For the record, there was nothing remotely racist in my use of the phrase "shuck and jive" – a phrase which many people have used, including Chris Matthews, Andrew Cuomo, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to name a few off the top of my head. In fact, Andrew Cuomo also used the phrase in reference to Barack Obama, and the fact that Mr. Cuomo and I used the phrase in relation to President Obama signifies nothing out of the ordinary. I would have used the exact same expression if I had been writing about President Carter, whose foreign policy rivaled Obama’s in its ineptitude, or about the Nixon administration, which was also famously rocked by a cover-up.

I’ve been known to use the phrase most often when chastising my daughter Piper to stop procrastinating and do her homework. As she is part Yup’ik Eskimo, I’m not sure if this term would be deemed offensive when it’s directed at her or if it would be considered benign as in the case of Chris Matthews’ use of it in reference to Rachel Maddow. Just to be careful, from now on I’ll avoid using it with Piper, and I would appreciate it if the media refrained from using words and phrases like igloo, Eskimo Pie, and “when hell freezes over,” as they might be considered offensive by my extended Alaska Native family.

The outrageously outraged reaction to this expression from perennial hypocrites like Chris Matthews has only made me laugh. Mr. Matthews, let me share with you my favorite Irish toast: “May we always be happy, and may our enemies always know it.”

- Sarah Palin

Here's the Carney video to which she refers:

Hypocrisy is so unattractive, and in this day and age of instant playback and social media, it really is quite embarrassing for the left to engage in it so much. It only makes them look desperate and very, very small.


Governor Palin Goes On the Record; Fired Up About President Obama's Libya Lies

Governor Palin talked to Greta on On the Record last night. She gave perhaps one of the most passionate interviews I've seen her give. With the information that has come to light about this administration's dishonesty with the American people concerning Libya, there's no surprise that she's fired up, as every one of us should be. Having a son risking his life in a war zone makes her especially disgusted with the Commander in Chief's willingness to mislead us concerning terrorism.

The first video (h/t Stacy Drake) begins with a few minutes of lead-in--very good clips of campaign coverage, including an interesting comment from Barbara Walters on The View. The actual interview begins at about 3:07. If you want to see only the interview, (courtesy of SarahNET), watch the second clip below:

Hannity Interviews Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr.

Saturday, October 20, 2012

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. discuss Governor Palin and their new book, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, with Sean Hannity:

(Video courtesy of SarahNET)



Thursday, October 18, 2012

Chuck Heath, Jr., big brother to Governor Palin, has kept so many of us engaged as he has written about the adventures he and his father have enjoyed while launching their new book, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska. Through humorous stories, he has made many of us feel like we accompanied them on their book tour throughout several states. I have heard from several people who have been glued to the words Chuck, Jr. has written and the pictures shared.

Now that the Heaths have returned to Alaska, has the sharing come to an end? The answer is a resounding "no." Chuck, Jr. is now the author of a new website: He has transferred his writing from the facebook page, Chuck Heath, Jr., to this new site, which you can now frequent to read his thoughts, check out his bio, and keep up with what's going on with him and Our Sarah, I'm sure.

Chuck writes:
Three quick things:

-Dad and I will be on Hannity this Friday night. This is the interview we taped in NYC two weeks ago. This was our first big interview and we were tired and nervous, so that's my excuse if it comes out lame!

-Last night during the presidential debate, I think the president actually quoted me! I did an interview last week (I think it was Mark Levin) and I was asked to describe some of the things Sarah had done for Alaska when she was governor. I said that one of her big accomplishments was forcing the oil companies, specifically Exxon, to develop lands that they had locked up in leases for over thirty years and start producing something. I said that Sarah told them they either needed to use it or lose it. (of course my dad wasn't as politically correct; he said, "It's time for Exxon to either sh.. or get off of the pot.") If you read the transcript of last night's debate, you'll see that he quotes us almost verbatim on this issue. (not dad!)

-I have a new website that just went up:

Governor Palin: Outrageous Gas Prices

Governor Palin shared the following video on Facebook. Let's talk about gas prices and this current administration...Gas prices have more than doubled under President Obama's administration. Time for a change.

The Governor writes:

Outrageous Gas Prices Are Such a Good Thing! Really!


Like Sister, Like Brother

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Chuck Heath, Jr. weighed in on the presidential debate, focusing on something that his sister, Governor Palin, speaks passionately about: energy--and President Obama's refusal to develop our own, particularly in Alaska. He also pointed out the fiscal quagmire America finds herself in.

On Facebook, he wrote:

I'm not going to comment on everything that was said, but I have to weigh in on the energy debate. I watched Obama and Romney go back and forth on the subject and the only thing that was going through my mind was, why are we paying over $4.00 per gallon for gas when we're obviously not responsibly exploiting our own domestic resources? Just this past August, the current administration locked up another 11.5 million acres of land in Alaska's strategic petroleum reserve. These are lands with proven petroleum reserves that were set aside for emergencies years ago by the Federal Government. We are currently subsidizing other countries off-shore drilling efforts while locking up our own. This makes no sense at all to me... if you can explain their rationale, I'm all ears.

Chuck, Jr. then shared some facts and figures that ought to alarm everyone:
Another thing that's been on my mind is these mind-boggling monetary figures that the candidates keep throwing out. A trillion here, a trillion there... Here's some statistics that my dad passed on to me regarding the trillion dollar comments:

-If you wanted to count to one million, and you said one number every second, 24 hours a day, it would take you twelve days.

-If you wanted to count to a billion, it would take 32 years.

-If you wanted to count to a trillion, it would take 32,000 years!

-If you stacked one trillion silver dollars on top of each other, the stack would be equivalent to five and a half million Empire State Buildings stacked together.

These are huge, scary numbers and I'm afraid that too many people out there don't comprehend the kind of debt we're in now. Blame it on whoever you want, but something drastic needs to change or we're sunk. We were told four years ago that our debt would be cut in half by now and instead, it's almost doubled.

I look at my three children and all I want is for them to have a safer, more economically secure, and more peaceful future than we have now.

Read the full piece and see a picture of his precious little girl here.


Last Night's Presidential Debate

In case you missed last night's presidential debate, you can watch it in its entirety and read the full transcript here.

Here are the thoughts I put on Facebook as I watched:

Question #1 to Pres. Obama. Romney has to be more specific. "I know what it takes" without telling us what it takes won't cut it. Step it up, Romney.
When the President talks about making sure women make the same as men, when it's a known fact that women in the white house make less than the men, I have to scratch my head--and more women are unemployed under this administration
How is it that Pres. Obama thinks he can get up during Mitt Romney's time and take over?! Can we get some moderators who can deal with this type of stuff?!

President Obama stepped into it when Romney called him out for his assertion that he said the attack in Benghazi was an act of terror, when everyone knows he and his administration refused to call it such. Instead, they blamed it on a Youtube video. I can't wait until November 6th.

Watch here.

Here’s a link to Bristol & Mark’s statement about tonight along with information on how to vote:

This is Bristol's article that Governor Palin linked to:
Last week, it was hard to see two “all star” couples go home, but I’m so glad Mark and I weren’t one of them!

Thank you for letting me be here for another week of Dancing with the Stars. If you think Mark and I are the best dancers tonight, then there are four ways to vote this week:

1. Phone

Please use this official telephone number. It is:


Phone lines open as soon as the show starts and stay open for 1 hour after the show. Fans should try to phone vote as soon as the show starts. After they dance and at end of the show are the hardest times to get through and we want every single vote. You can vote on as many phones as you have access to. For the first half of the season, voters will be allowed the same number votes as the contestants. For example, this week there will be nine contestants, so each type of account gets 9 votes. Once they are down to 5 contestants or less, the fans still get 5 votes per account.

2. Text

AT&T users can text the word “vote” to “3409″ as well. Once again you get the same number of votes as contestants. You can text votes and call votes from the same phone.

3. E-mail

You can also e-mail votes online here. On show nights there will be a vote tab. You have to have an account to vote online. You should make your accounts before the show starts because when the show is going the site crawls. You can vote with as many accounts as you make.

4. Facebook

The final way to vote is by going to the DWTS Facebook app and casting your votes here!

Spread this information far and wide! Thank you for your support!

You betcha!


Video: Governor Palin on America's News HQ; Updated

Sunday, October 14, 2012

Shannon Bream of Fox News' America's News HQ did a rather interesting interview with Governor Palin today, covering a lot of ground in a little time. The interview was spent answering questions people had posed on Twitter, including one from Ron Devito, avid supporter of the Governor, who asked about something near and dear to the Governor's heart: her son, Trig.

Topics on the table were the vice presidential debate, advice she'd give Mitt Romney, whether she'd take a particular job in a Romney administration, and if she is planning to run for President. To that last question, she stated that she is still considering a future run, as she believes her experience can prove an asset nationally.

At about four minutes into the interview, Bream asked a question that caused Governor Palin to come as close to blushing as I've ever seen her, but the audio broke up at that point, and I cannot figure out what the question was. Whatever it was, the Governor seemed a bit unsure of how to answer it, and said, "I probably should be doing more." I got the feeling the question included something complimentary that caught her off guard. Shannon Bream moved things along by suggesting the answer might be "classified information." I'm sure the interview will be available elsewhere online, and we will soon know what that question was.

Enjoy, courtesy of SarahNET:

Update: According to Sue Lynn, the question was how many sit ups is she able to do. No wonder she was caught off guard: She's answering questions about the state of the union and presidential politics, and a question about sit ups is thrown in there!


Video: Chuck Heath, Sr. and Jr. Discuss Our Sarah with Fox and Friends Sunday

Governor Palin's dad and brother discussed who "Our Sarah" really is in their interview this morning on Fox and Friends. Included in that interview were their reasons for writing Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, the frustrating aspects of how the media has portrayed Governor Palin, and the positive stories within the book. With all the false things that have been written about her, it is indeed Chuck, Sr. and Chuck, Jr's "turn to talk," as Fox dubbed it.

Heath Humor Never Tires

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Remember when Chuck Heath, Sr. and Jr. sent the tire they were given--Kyle Busch's tire--to Alaska via UPS? It arrived at Chuck, Sr's house. But, thanks to his wife and friend's sense of humor, he first thought it had been stolen. Chuck, Sr. was all fired up and ready to take action, but if you read Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, you know that it serves him right after all the practical jokes he's been known to play--like entering a race under a friend's name and running a slow time, and placing an ad for a prayer line, using this friend's phone number! It's only fair, therefore, that some of the Heath humor be turned on him.

Chuck, Jr. journals:
Here's proof that our NASCAR tire made it to Alaska, that's my boys Kier and Teko fighting over it. As usual there is a story behind it. If you remember from my earlier post, Dad and I sent the tire via UPS from Birmingham, Alabama a week or so ago (if you didn't read the old post, we visited Talladega Speedway and we were given one of Kyle Busch's used race tires).

Anyway, dad called me yesterday and he was ready to explode. When he got back to Wasilla, the UPS package had was waiting for him at his house. When he opened it, he was shocked to see that the tire had been replaced with a tiny, old beaten up one from a Toyota. He wanted to know if I had the address of the UPS store in Birmingham because he was going to take legal action against them. He just knew that someone there had stolen ours and switched it for the one he received. As he was going off, I started to hear roaring laughter in the background. Dad said something I can't repeat here, and then he started laughing too.

It turns out that dad's best friend, Adrian Lane, and my mom had switched the tires out right before he got home. They had sealed the box back up and left it on the doorstep.

We still haven't quite adjusted to normal life. Mom and dad spent yesterday making it their personal mission to make sure our book would be available in every bookstore in Wasilla. Unbelievably, of all the places we visited in the last few weeks, Wasilla is the only one where we couldn't find our book!

We got up at 3:45am this morning to do the Fox and Friends segment. It was painful getting up that early but it was worth it because there were huge curtains of dancing, green northern lights covering the entire sky. Even my son Kier got out of bed to come watch them.

We drove to Sarah's house to shoot our segment. Todd Palin and Track's friend, Jack were our studio crew. There was some kind of technical glitch in the live, satellite feed so we ended up recording the segment and it's supposed to air tomorrow morning, probably at 9:50 eastern, 5:50 Alaskan time.

We're off to our kids' basketball and hockey games over the next two days. It's very cold and it's supposed to snow this afternoon so I guess life is getting back to normal.



Audio: Governor Palin on Fox News Radio with Brian Kilmeade

Friday, October 12, 2012

Brian Kilmeade interviewed Governor Palin this morning on Fox News Radio. They discussed a plethora of issues, including last night's vice presidential debate, her own debate with then-Senator Biden four years ago, and her political future. They also discussed how her life has changed over the last four years, her dad and brother's new book, Bristol's participation on Dancing with the Stars, and Todd Palin's participation on Stars Earn Stripes, along with his incredible athletic ability.

It's an excellent, substantive exchange.

Our Sarah Returns to Alaska

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. have returned to Alaska after three weeks "Outside," as Alaskans refer to the Lower 48. They are understandably exhausted after such a busy book tour schedule. They're not done getting the word out about their new book, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, however. They will be conducting a book signing at the house the family lived in when the Heath siblings were children.

Via Facebook:

We made it to Alaska in one piece. It's warmer than I'd thought it'd be... flying into Anchorage the mountains were as majestic as ever, but the peaks were just lightly dusted with snow. It's good to be home.

Dad's so tired he can't think straight. I could insert a joke here but I can vouch for how beat we both are. He'll sleep at my house in Anchorage tonight and drive to Wasilla tomorrow.

Speaking of not thinking straight, my wife has been reading my posts and she just informed me tonight that I put way too many commas in my writing. So now, I'm paranoid, that I might be, annoying her. Between my wife and mom, I'll figure it out eventually.

I didn't get to see the entire debate tonight but from what I did see, I really hope people appreciate what a great job Sarah did against Biden in 08', because in my opinion, she whipped him.

Lastly, my belly laugh for the day came at a gas station in Kennewick, Washington. Dad and I stopped to fill up our rental car. Dad told me to pull the lever to pop open the gas tank. I looked for a minute and couldn't find it. I asked him if he was sure that it wasn't one of those tanks that opened from the outside and he assured me it wasn't. We searched the car for almost five minutes looking for the switch/lever. Finally, dad got the manual out of the glove box and started reading it. While he did that, I walked over to the gas cap and pushed it in. It popped right open. Ten minutes wasted but another good laugh.

Heaths End Lower 48 Book Tour: 'We'll See You on Down the Trail'; Updated: Photo of Gov. Palin Jumping Hurdles

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. encountered family and friends at many of the Our Sarah book tour locations, and every where they went they made others feel like family and friends. Now, this adventure in the Lower 48 has come to an end. They have had the experience of a lifetime, and we have certainly enjoyed vicariously accompanying them on every stop. After a schedule that took them to a plethora of states, the last of which was Washington State, the Heaths are headed back to the great state of Alaska. I miss them already.

Chuck Jr. journals on Facebook:

This is a picture from our signing tonight. These are some of our relatives that showed up: Greg and Brandi Jones, Kate and Tom Johnson... not pictured are my Uncle Ron and Aunt Colleen Jones. We also had friends show up from as far away as our old hometown of Skagway, Alaska (thanks Fred and Kathy Hosford).

This is a bittersweet post for us. We just finished our final book signing in the Lower 48, here in Richland, Washington. Dad and I are physically and mentally exhausted from three weeks on the road. We've crossed the country, met some incredible people, done over fifty interviews, and along the way, we've become closer as father and son than ever before (even though there have definitely been times when we wanted to strangle each other). After all of our adventures, a big part of us doesn't want it to end. We still want to get out to other places to share our adventures in Alaska and our time with Sarah, but we have families that we miss very much waiting patiently for us at home.

We're not completely done, though. We will be returning to Alaska late tomorrow night, and then we'll head out to Wasilla, Friday, to do another interview with Fox and Friends (from Sarah's little studio) at 3:00am! If you watch it Saturday morning, I'll be the guy with the dark bags under my eyes and dad will be the guy mumbling incoherently beside me. Just joking dad... sort of.

Today was a very busy day for us. Besides the book signing in Richland, we also did three radio and two television interviews. They all seemed to go well, but you never know how they'll come across. We also had dinner with my uncle, Ron Jones, his wife, Colleen, and his son Greg and wife Brandi. As usual, our time with family was too short.

I just want you guys that are following us to know how much we appreciate you. Your comments gave us the fuel we needed to keep going when we were bone-tired. My favorite part has been hearing from people at the book signings that have actually read the book and told me how much they enjoyed it. That's so nice to hear. I know that dad and I are not a couple of Tolstoys, and we didn't pretend to try to be like that when we wrote the book. We wanted to tell our stories in the same way we relate them orally to our friends.

We'll keep plugging along and we'll try to get our book in people's hands, despite getting little or no help from the mainstream media. Besides the stories about Alaska and Sarah, everyone should hear the stories about the way the media can try to destroy a good person's character.

Thank you again for all your support, and at the request of a lot of you out there, we'll keep posting entries from Alaska, just not as many.

As dad always says when leaving his friends, "We'll see you on down the trail."


Here's local Richland coverage of the book signing:

UPDATE: Chuck, Jr. posted the following comment and picture of Governor Palin on Facebook. (You'll have to turn your computer sideways :).

Just like Sarah in this early picture, we are about to cross another hurdle on our long trip back to Alaska.

I'll post an update on Saturday.

Chuck, Jr.


More Heath Adventures

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

In two posts by Chuck, Jr., we learn about a driver, Darrell, who loves Governor Palin and a woman who doesn't view her quite so favorably.

Our driver arrived shortly after and we loaded up for the ride to the airport. Our driver’s name was Darrell, and somehow our conversation drifted to Alaska again. Dad asked him if he’d ever heard of Sarah Palin, and Darrell replied, “Are you kidding? That’s my girl!”

He told us that his passion was ballroom dancing, and he told us to relay a message to Bristol thanking her for exposing so many new people to the genre. He mentioned that many more people are taking up dancing thanks to DWTS and people like Bristol, who show that even if you’ve never danced before, it’s never too late to learn. That’s great, but I don’t think dad is going to break any doors down to sign up.

Read the rest here.

We stopped at a Starbucks to grab a bite and I brought my computer in with me. I was trying to learn to cut and paste from Word (like so many of you told me to do) when a woman stopped by and asked if I needed help. I said yes, and she walked me through the steps. Right after she helped me send the post I sent earlier today, dad asked her, "Do you know who you're helping there?" She said, "A really nice man." Dad said, "That's Sarah Palin's brother." She immediately gave me the look of death. I'm sure if she realized that she was helping me post something on a pro-Sarah site, it would have been even worse. Dad and I both got a chuckle out of her reaction and we made a point to go out of our way to thank her before we left.

More here.

Keep up with all the Heath book tour adventures here.


Our Work Continues for 'Our Sarah'; Counting on You

Common sense conservatives have been joined together by common principles, among which are a respect for life, love of country, commitment to the Constitution, and belief in fiscal restraint. Those of us who support Governor Palin have found ourselves united also by a determination to defend her record and character against the onslaught of personal attacks, false narratives, and outright lies. Since 2008, a core of supporters have fought back against every attempt to trivialize her influence and remove her from the forefront of American political life. Many have risen to the occasion to set the record straight. Citizen journalists have led the charge, debunking fiction while disseminating fact.

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck Heath, Jr. have given us something that will help in our goal to spread the truth of who Governor Palin really is. The Governor's father and brother wrote Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, a book that allows us to better understand her upbringing, her work ethic, and her political career. They share the adventures of an ordinary family whose life experiences helped produce someone doing extraordinary things.

Our Sarah serves, not only as an entertaining account of a family forging their way in the Last Frontier, but as a tool to aid in putting the truth front and center. Unfortunately, haters are hell-bent on hating, a fact which is not likely to change. They not only take to social media like Twitter and Facebook to spew their vile, or write books citing unnamed sources to cast aspersions, they go about seeking ways to override every vestige of positive news about Governor Palin. Since the Heaths released their book, some have written reviews of it for the purpose of continuing their anti-Palin campaign.

Here's a sample:

From Goodreads:

Yuckity yuck yuck.

I'd rather watch my mom beg for mercy than read this book.

From Amazon:
This just exemplifies the nature of the Palin/Heath family. Do or say anything to make money. Sarah did and got millions, why shouldn't Daddy and big brother? Sure beats having integrity. Her star has not only faded but is burning out, what better way to attempt to re-ignite it? She has nothing else to say that, when put in book form, would sell, most especially considering what a failure her "America By Heart" was. The apple doesn't...well you know the rest
Why are you given this 5 stars when you haven't read it yet? Duh! Just the type of person I would expect to be a Sarah fan. No one is interested in the Palin's anymore & haven't been in a few years except for the occassional laugh factor, that's why this new release is ranked at #3,800.

There are also many positive comments out there. Here are a couple from Amazon:
I read the entire book in one sitting and wanted more. This book is not just setting the record straight, but has great Alaskan stories that bring home why Alaska is called " The Last Frontier". Sarah's brother, and dad especially seem to be characters, the type of folks that you could sit and listen to tell stories for hours. I laughed out loud at some of these stories and was touched by others. Really, a well-written book- the only downside that it wasn't longer.
With down home folksiness that epitomizes the parents of Governor Palin , Chuck Heath tells the story of an incredible state ; an unforgettable family and a remarkable daughter---Governor Sarah Palin.

The only review on Barnes & Noble is the one I submitted.

We need more of these positive, truthful comments to push back against the negative ones.

In the interest of our ongoing effort to fight the smears and right the wrongs, would you consider going to these sites, signing up, and posting your comments about Our Sarah: Made in Alaska? You can also rate the book.

I've heard many people praise this new book, and it's enjoying success on Let's not just read the book, go to our favorite website, and talk amongst "our own," however. Won't you consider leaving your mark for all to see? This is yet another way to help Governor Palin and to stand up for the truth. The critics, most of whom, I'd venture to say, have not even read the book, are counting on us to remain silent while they loudly proclaim falsehoods and discourage others from reading the true account of Governor Palin's life and character. Let's meet them where they are.

Please go to the Our Sarah: Made in Alaska page at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and any other place you find that allows a comment or review. I've already done the same.

Standing up for Governor Palin is what we do, and this is just another way to accomplish that. Our work continues. Can the Palins and Heaths count on you?


CDA Press Covers Coeur d'Alene, Idaho Our Sarah Book Signing

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

The Our Sarah book tour received complimentary coverage as father and son, Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr., returned to a place where they have deep roots: Idaho.

In an article called "Sold on Sarah," CDA Press reports on the Heaths' address to the crowd and comments from those assembled at the Hastings Bookstore in Coeur d'Alene. Here are a few excerpts:
Karen White had one reason for being among the first in line Monday night to listen to Sarah Palin's father and brother pitch their book, "Our Sarah: Made in Alaska."

"Because I like Sarah Palin," the Coeur d'Alene woman said, holding two copies of the $24.99 hardback written by Chuck Heath Sr. and Chuck Heath Jr.

White bought one for herself and one for a friend, and had both autographed by Sarah's dad and brother.

"They're down-to-earth people," she said.

About 50 folks gathered at the Hastings store on Best Avenue to hear from the Heaths during one of their stops on a nationwide book tour.

The Chucks chatted for 45 minutes about faith, politics, the media and Sarah, of course - but not too much - because they've got a book to sell and sign that offers "intimate stories from Sarah's life along with a celebration of growing up in and sharing all that Alaska means to Sarah and her family."

They laughed often - "Anybody that calls me Mr. Palin, I charge them a dollar. I could be rich on that," Heath Sr. said, grinning.

But they also often expressed frustration with the media they accused of twisting words and making up stories about Sarah Palin and her family.

"Most of the stuff written about us is totally untrue," Chuck Jr. said.

"You guys that know her personally, she is as regular as anybody you will ever meet," he added.

"We look at ourselves as just a common, ordinary family," said Chuck Heath Sr., who grew up in Hope and graduated from Sandpoint High School in 1956. "We are not political. Where Sarah got this political ambition, we really don't know."

He said he also doesn't know his daughter's game plan.

"We don't know what she's going to do tomorrow. She's very unpredictable. You'll be seeing her again, I guarantee that," he said.

He said Sarah only cares about what's best for the people.

"She's still that way. She's not loyal to one party or another. It's get a job done and let's work together, and forget all this nonsense on the side," he said, then adding, "which is what our country kind of needs right now."

Shirley Greene drove up from Moscow to meet the Heath men and buy the book because she, too, is a huge Sarah Palin fan. She said Chuck Heath's mother, Marie, was her teacher in Hope.

Four Ways to Vote for Bristol Palin on DWTS Tonight

Monday, October 8, 2012

Bristol Palin takes part in the third week of the Dancing with the Stars All-Star competition tonight. It's double elimination time, so tonight is not the night to miss out on voting!

Bristol reminds us of four ways we can vote for her and thanks us for our support:
Did you know that tonight is a special “double elimination night” for Dancing with the Stars? That means two “all star” couples are going home, no matter what. Mark and I don’t want to be one of them!
If you think Mark and I are the best dancers tonight, then there are four ways to vote.

1. Phone

Please use this official telephone number. It is:


Phone lines open as soon as the show starts and stay open for 1 hour after the show. Fans should try to phone vote as soon as the show starts. After they dance and at end of the show are the hardest times to get through and we want every single vote. You can vote on as many phones as you have access to. For the first half of the season, voters will be allowed the same number votes as the contestants. For example, this week there will be eleven contestants, so each type of account gets 11 votes. Once they are down to 5 contestants or less, the fans still get 5 votes per account.

2. Text

AT&T users can text the word “vote” to “3409″ as well. Once again you get the same number of votes as contestants. You can text votes and call votes from the same phone.

3. E-mail

You can also e-mail votes online here. On show nights there will be a vote tab. You have to have an account to vote online. You should make your accounts before the show starts because when the show is going the site crawls. You can vote with as many accounts as you make.

4. Facebook

The final way to vote is by going to the DWTS Facebook app and casting your votes here!

Spread this information far and wide! Thank you for your support!


Governor Palin: Happy Columbus Day

Governor Palin, via Facebook:

Happy Columbus Day. Thank goodness for the determination of all bold explorers and innovators—yesterday and today—who don't let the critics hold them back. May their courage and determination always inspire us to greater heights and encourage us today to seek responsible resource development opportunities.

Speaking of resource development, I’m in California again today and the gas prices here are just ridiculous. One solution to this problem is of course increased exploration domestically in order to tap our plentiful supplies and not let the naysayers hold us back.

I’m in California today to support Bristol. I’m sorry to see that she’s again getting those annoying death threats and more “mysterious white powder” sent to her while on DWTS this All-Star season. These threats sure waste a lot of time, production and public resources; but do the haters really think this will stop Bristol and Mark and the show’s producers from keepin' on keepin' on? Silly critics -- after all these years of goofy antics like this we find these efforts are actually quite motivating! Bristol’s not letting this get her down. Anyway, tonight is a “double elimination” night, so hopefully everyone who has supported her so far will do so again! I'll be sure to post the call in number and voting instructions later today before the event. Thank you again to everyone. It means a great deal during this fun and highly competitive event, and it's sure appreciated!

As Bristol shares with anyone targeted by the naysayers in life: “Hey, the haters will hate anyway; the critics will criticize, so you might as well dance!”

- Sarah Palin


Our Sarah - On the Road to Idaho

It was an extra early start to the day for the Heaths. There's nothing like traveling the country and being received with appreciation and gratitude, as Chuck, Jr. and Sr. have been, only to awaken to news that snark abounds in the media back home. It reminds me of the following Scripture:

But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” --Mark 6:4

Lest I be misunderstood, I'm not calling the Heaths prophets, but the principle applies, as we've seen in the manner in which Governor Palin has been treated. Of course, the Heath and Palin families have plenty of support in their own state. Some members of the media and some other operatives there, however, could learn a thing or two from those supporters. One of those Alaskans should definitely send the local paper a copy of Our Sarah, and throw in The Undefeated for good measure!

Via Facebook:
Here's a picture from the big game yesterday. Not the best quality but it gives you an idea how close we were to the field. Both teams played great but Indy had a little "Luck" on their side, if you know what I mean.

I got a wake-up call at 4:00am this morning from a friend in Alaska (thanks, Jeff... grrrrr) telling me that the local paper wrote something snarky about our book/tour. Nice way to wake up. I'm still waiting for them to write a story about all of the positive things Sarah has done for Alaska; especially the economic impact of opening peoples eyes to our beautiful state and all that it has to offer. I won't hold my breath on that one.

We are sitting in the Indianapolis Airport right now watching a beautiful sunrise. We didn't have to see the sunrise, but you know dad... he insisted on being here two hours earlier than we needed to be.

Our driver this morning, Darrell, ended up being a big Sarah fan and recognized us from our Fox interview yesterday. Darrell is a ballroom dancer and he said that Bristol's appearance on DWTS has exposed many people to that genre. I know that was the case with our own family and friends.

There's a CNBC Store about fifty feet from where I'm sitting. They carry most of the newly released books but ours isn't in there. hmmm...

We saw Peter Schweizer and Steve Bannon speaking on Fox and Friends this morning about illegal campaign contributions. They were backing up what Sarah wrote about a couple of days ago. If you don't know about these guys, Peter is the guy who wrote the book, "Throw Them all Out" which exposed politicians who got rich through inside Wall Street trading tips, favors, etc. Steve was the producer of the movie, "The Undefeated". Both of these guys are brilliant, and I interviewed with Steve last year.

Okay. We're off to Minneapolis for a layover... my first time back since the 2008 Convention. Wow, lots of great memories there. Then we'll head to Spokane, Washington and drive to Couer D'Alene, Idaho from there.



Heaths in Indianapolis: FOX Interview, Packers Game, Best Sellers List

Sunday, October 7, 2012

Chuck Heath, Jr. and Sr. spent another day here in the Lower 48. In the words of Dad Heath, it was "a dream come true." Long-time Green Bay Packers fans, they attended the Packers/Colts game in Indianapolis after doing a FOX News Channel interview with Shannon Bream. But first, Chuck, Jr. shares that they got a message from his mom:

Mom just sent me a message (again) telling me that the times of our next two book signings are incorrect on some websites. Here's the official times this week:

-Monday, Couer D'Alene, Idaho. 6:30pm, Hastings Bookstore

-Wednesday, Richland, Washington. 6:30pm, Hastings Bookstore

We'll be on Fox news today at 12:30est, and we're recording another segment of Fox and Friends.

More to come, but we've got to get ready for the Packers/Colts game!

Ms. Sally is definitely on top of things! Please take note of these times.

Chuck, Jr. also thanked his sister for her Facebook note about their book tour.

He ended the day with a recap that included learning that Our Sarah: Made in Alaska made the Amazon Best Sellers list:
Okay. I'm trying really hard not to throw this laptop against the wall. I just finished writing a very long post about today's events, and when I hit 'post' it disappeared again. Second time this trip! Infuriating!

So here's the condensed version:

-Got up, had breakfast with 100+ Packer fans from all over the country.

-Walked to the Indiana War Memorial that commemorates Indiana soldiers who fell in the Civil and Spanish American wars. Very amazing. Go see it.

-Went to a studio for a live, national Fox interview. Wrong studio, panic, found the right one with two minutes to spare. We did the interview, it was okay but short. Mom sent us her constructive criticism. Love you mom.

-Made it to the game a little late. We were amazed at the size of Lucas Field and the huge crowd. Awesome game, great seats. Thanks Christy Ridenour for taking us and delivering us dinner later. Oh, and for buying eleven of our books.

-Packer fans are great. No pouting or whining after the close loss.. Just a lot of, "We'll get'em next time!" comments.

-Answered lots of messages.

-Found out our book hit the Amazon best seller list! Great news considering we haven't gotten any help from the big media guns (except Fox). It proves that there is power in the silent majority. Reminds me of the people that said Sarah couldn't be elected as governor without media and big oil money support. She did it with the people, and that's all that counts.

-Special thanks to Wenda and Bill Quilter in Ohio for the nice care package and for treating us to dinner yesterday.

-Love to my wife Abby for taking care of everything at home while I'm gone.

-Hello to my kids, Kier, Teko, and Sophia. I can't wait to see you!

I'll post pictures of today's game later, if FB will let me!

Big travel day tomorrow culminating with a book signing in Couer D'Alene, Idaho.


Okay, here's the FOX News interview with Shannon Bream:


Toronto Sun: 'Death Panels' a Fact of Life in Ontario

Many said she was wrong. One even said she should "leave the room" instead of engaging in this debate. Nonetheless, yet another person validates what Governor Palin warned us about "death panels" in Obamacare.

Via the Toronto Sun:

Sarah Palin’s prophecy is a fact of life in Ontario

Palin, the former U.S. vice-presidential candidate and governor of Alaska, conjured up the Orwellian spectre of “death panels,” — faceless groups of bureaucrats who’d make tough decisions on who gets what medical care under socialized medicine.

In this province, a patient whose application for out-of-province care is turned down can appeal to the Health Services Appeals and Review Board (HSARB).

According to lawyer Perry Brodkin, almost all those appeals are rejected.

Part of the problem, he says, is that patients try to represent themselves at the hearings — and find themselves up against a battery of high-priced OHIP and ministry lawyers.

And high legal costs mean it’s only worthwhile hiring a lawyer if the procedure is expensive.

“When we’re talking $25,000 only, the legal fees are going to be pretty close to that.

“If your appeal is granted, you get nothing. If your appeal is denied, you pay the $25,000 (for the procedure) plus all the legal fees,” he said.

Either way, you’re out of pocket.

So who makes up these panels?

Well, of HSARB’s 43-person board, 31 are lawyers. One is a chartered accountant, one is a mortgage underwriter and the rest are a mix of educators and consultants. The position pays $398 a day.

So much for the little guy.

Our Sarah Makes Amazon Best Sellers List

Governor Palin's father and brother's new book, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, hit the shelves on September 25. Already, the book is enjoying success. Currently, Our Sarah has reached the Amazon Best Sellers list in the Political Leader Biographies category. The Kindle edition is #6, and among hardcover books, it's #10.

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. worked hard to write a book that shares the truth of who the Heaths and Palins are. We get a good look at Governor Palin, the people who have influenced her, the experiences she's lived, and the values she's espoused. We get to understand her work ethic better and how it was shaped, we learn details about the 2008 campaign, and we come away with an even greater respect for both Governor Palin and her family. You'll do a little laughing and crying along the way as well.

In various media appearances, the Chucks have stated that over one hundred books have been written about their daughter and sister, but theirs is different. They actually know the subject of their book, unlike some of the other authors, many of whom were simply looking for a way to destroy her and promote a false narrative. Governor Palin mentioned this in her Facebook "thank you" note to those who have supported her dad and brother on the tour.

If you haven't purchased the book yet, you will definitely want to do so. I can attest to the fact that you won't want to put it down. You can get yours at Amazon here.

Congratulations, Chuck, Sr. and Chuck, Jr. May you enjoy continued success.

(h/t Sue Lynn)


Governor Palin: Thank you to everyone who has supported my dad and my brother on their book tour!

Via Facebook, Governor Palin expresses gratitude to those who have supported her father and brother during the book tour for their newly released book, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska:
Several books and articles have been written, and some movies made, under the guise of sharing with the public who the Palins are, and who I am in particular. Very often, the goal is simply to misrepresent us and present something so far-fetched as to not bear any resemblance to truth at all. Many in the media have been more than happy to make room for these stories and allow those behind them to have their say, though these “biographers” very often neither know me nor are willing to put names to their so-called sources.

This is why I so appreciate those members of the media who are giving my dad and brother—who have written a factual book—a platform to tell the real story. Unlike many of the other books people have turned to for information, Our Sarah: Made in Alaska is written by two people who actually know me, were there through much of the 2008 campaign, and have cut through the bunk right to the truth—the truth of who the Heaths and Palins really are and what an Alaska upbringing provides. I am thankful for those who actually are fair and balanced in their reporting, giving the two Chucks the same opportunity to tell their story.

Two particularly good interviews are one Chuck, Jr. did with the Great One, Mark Levin, and an interview Greta Van Susteren conducted with both Chucks. If you only saw what Greta was able to air on On the Record last night, be sure to watch the uncut version.

A heartfelt “thank you” to those who have taken part in the book tour. In a whirlwind of a schedule, Dad and Chuck, Jr. have traveled to various states, and many of you have been there to greet them, help with laundry (yes, that's right!), or just shake their hands. I know they appreciate it, and I just wanted to chime in and say that I appreciate it also. The tour is winding down, but there are a few more stops. Go here to see the remaining schedule, and stop in to say "hello" if you can. You never know: you might just end up in one of my brother's journal entries, which he's recording on their Facebook page.

Thank you!


From Wasilla to Texas: Heaths Reunite with Old Friends

Saturday, October 6, 2012

Via Facebook: Chuck Heath fills us in on the day's Our Sarah book tour happenings:

I said I'd post this yesterday. This is a photo taken at our Dallas signing yesterday. We had a mini-reunion, here. The guys behind us, Dane and Shane Tharp, and John Cottle, all went to high school with me and Sarah in Wasilla. Dad coached Dane and Shane, and John and I played together on the basketball team. They all live in Texas now, and we're really grateful they went out of their way to come see us.

Here's what he posted after arriving in Indianapolis:
We just arrived in Indianapolis and this town is hopping. Big Packers/Colts game tomorrow, and we're going! We hear music blasting outside of our hotel window as various groups of fans, mostly Cheeseheads, seem to be getting themselves juiced up for tomorrow. We've already met some of them, and I'll tell you what... they sure are friendly.

We're Packer fans because of dad's connection to former all-pro Green Bay player, Jerry Kremer. Jerry used to block for dad when they played high school ball together in Idaho. Jerry contributed to our book, too.

We are going out for a quick bite to eat, and then we'll try to get to bed fairly early for once. I hope dad has an extra set of earplugs.

We will be on FOX news tomorrow at 12:30est., and we just got the word that some new national stuff is being lined up.

If any of you in Indy would like us to sign your books, we'll meet you in front of the Colt's Pro Shop by the south entrance of Lucas Stadium, right after the game. I doubt any of you will bother carrying a book into the game though!

more later...

Sounds like fun!


Chuck Heath, Jr. and Sr. Set a Brainwashed Couple Straight

Chuck, Jr. was too exhausted last night to journal about the day's adventures, so he told us he'd fill us in today. With the schedule they've been keeping, they deserve the rest. His recap was worth the wait, as he shared with us a conversation with a couple who clearly didn't know the difference between Governor Palin and Tina Fey--or the difference between fact and fiction. They, too, have been led astray by the false narratives out there. Good thing the Chucks were there to set them straight. The encounter is priceless. This couple is just one example of why a book like Our Sarah: Made in Alaska is so important. Let's get it into the hands of everyone we can.

Chuck, Jr. writes (emphasis mine):

Now this is a hardcore fan! We ran into Eric, at our Dallas signing last night. He proudly showed us his Sarah tattoo. He had met Sarah on the road a couple of years ago and asked her to sign his arm. She asked him why and he told her he was going to have her signature tattooed on it. I don't think she really believed that he'd actually go through with it but he did, and he's very proud of it.

We went out to dinner after the signing with Eric, Lynda, Michelle, and three of our high school friends from Wasilla who showed up to surprise us, John Cottle, and brothers Shane and Dane Tharp. I'll put a picture up of them in a little while.

We got up at 5:00 a.m. this morning (that's redundant) and dad answered the automated wake-up call by telling the machine, "Good Morning! Thanks for the call!" I've told him a million times that it's just a machine he's talking to.

We showered, packed up, got on the elevator (where you guys know what he said to the two men in there with us), and went down for breakfast. They weren't serving until 7:00, so we missed it and caught a ride to the airport.

While we were in line to go through security, we started talking to a family from New Mexico. Eventually the conversation turned to Alaska. Dad asked them if they'd ever heard of Wasilla? The wife rolled her eyes and said, "Of course. That's where that lady who thinks she can see Russia from her house, lives." We both jumped on her immediately (figuratively) and set her straight. I pulled out a copy of our book to show them who they were talking to and they were so embarrassed. I think we actually may have convinced them to read the book. That's another perfect example of some really nice people who've been brainwashed by the media.

We made it to our gate two hours early as usual, and I checked my messages. I got a really nice note from Greta V about our appearance on her show last night, and we got lots of nice messages from folks back home.

Dad's wandering around looking for bookstores to see if our book is in any of them... I better go look for him; he doesn't have a GPS this time.

Off to Ohio...

During the day yesterday, Chuck, Jr. filled us in on a warm thank you message he got, which helped ease the longing for his wife and kids back home. He posted:
It's a small world. Remember my post the other day when I told the story about our trip to Talladega and running into the security guard, Bobby, that tried to run us off before he found out who we were? Well I got a message today from his daughter, Christy Ellard Peterson. We had given a signed copy of our book to Bobby and he had us personalize it for Christy. Somehow, she stumbled upon our facebook page and send me a really nice thank you message.

I miss my wife and kids back in Alaska, but little things like that story make our whole trip worthwhile.

Read the rest here.

In case you missed it, go here to watch the Heaths' interview with Mark Levin, David Brody, and Greta Van Susteren. Ian posted the uncut interview with Greta in this morning's Open Thread.

I'll keep posting the adventures of Chuck, Jr. and Sr. here, as they are engaging, exciting, and often quite funny. However, if you haven't done so yet, go to their Our Sarah Facebook page and "Like" it.

Chuck, Jr. Recaps Alabama, Will Be on Levin and Greta Tonight

Chuck Heath, Jr. journaled about getting the special treatment at Talladega Speedway on Wednesday, and he wondered how he was going to get the special gift, a Kyle Busch race-used tire, back home to Alaska. Yesterday, they went to UPS so that tire could beat them back to Alaska.

Chuck writes:

We stopped by a Birmingham, Alabama, UPS store to ship our tire (Kyle Busch's) to Alaska. The UPS guys got a kick out of it. That was a first for them.

He includes this picture:

Last night, Chuck checked in again:
Hello everyone. Here's today's rundown:

We started our day by doing an early morning television show called, "Good Day Alabama". That went okay but we didn't have much time to talk because they had a very full schedule. The host, Janice, works her rear end off on that show.

After that, we headed over to radio station WYDE, 101.3, where we spent a great hour interviewing with host, Lee Davis. Lee asked dad what his overall impression of the debate was last night, and dad, being the politically correct person he is said on air, "Obama looked like a kid who knew he had done something wrong and was about to be bent over Romney's lap and spanked." I cringed, Lee busted out laughing. Good ole' dad.

We left Lee's station in search of a barber... I really needed a haircut. We got lost again (thanks Mr. GPS) but through some kind of divine intervention, we ended up right in front of a UPS store. We had been talking about what to do with our NASCAR tire for quite awhile. We decided to go in and ask the UPS guys how much it would cost to ship it to Alaska from there. The first quote was 320.00! I thought they were joking. "We could by an airline ticket for that!", I said. We ended up going back and forth, exploring every option, until we finally agreed on a price which was about a third of the first one. It was still way too much but as dad said, "this is an opportunity of a lifetime". (How redneck is that?"

When we told the UPS guys to ship it to Wasilla, Alaska, they put two and two together and said, "Isn't that where Sarah Palin is from?" The floodgates broke and we spilled our little secret again. We took some pictures with the guys and signed some autographs... our weird, indirect brush with fame.

I still needed a barber so our new best friends at UPS told me about one nearby. They also mentioned that if we were hungry, there was a great BBQ joint called, Jim and Nick's right across the street from the restaurant. The restaurant's motto is: If pigs could fly, we'd still eat them. We followed their sage advice and got two orders of baby back ribs, and a #4 haircut to boot. By the way, one of the ladies at the barbershop stopped dad and said she recognized him from somewhere. Dad said, "Yeah, that was me in Cell Block Six".
He finally told them the truth and they raved about his performance on Sarah's tv show. We ended up signing some napkins for them and taking some pictures. They were great.

We went back to our hotel and tried to take a much needed nap. I was exhausted but I couldn't sleep because I was so worried that I'd sleep through my scheduled Mark Levin interview later that afternoon. I never did sleep, and then I got a text right before the interview saying that due to last night's debate and the subsequent buzz, I was being bumped to tomorrow night. Errrr! not again! I understand that one, though.

We got up and drove to Trussville for our book signing. We met some great people but didn't get the crowd we were expecting. Most of the people we have met in Alabama have been big supporters but only a couple of them even knew we were in town. We have to do a better job of promoting ourselves, which is very, very difficult because dad has drummed it into our heads for our entire life to just work hard and let others toot your horn. (I hope the meaning of that came across like I meant it to)

We went back to our hotel and had an appetizer in the restaurant. Ironically, our waitress, Lisa, was a Sarah Palin doppleganger who was also a fan. We then went to the elevator, where dad announced to everyone for the 112th time this trip, "Who's driving this thing?!".

Off to Dallas tomorrow. We'll be doing Mark Levin tomorrow evening, and we'll be on Greta the same night.

I heard the elevation down there is a few feet higher than here, so I hope we get there early enough to acclimate so we can think straight.

Good Night!

Man, it sure sounds like they're having a blast!


Video: Governor Palin Discusses Obama's Dishonesty, Presidential Debate With Greta

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Governor Palin was a guest on Greta Van Susteren tonight. She talked about the revelation that President Obama voted against releasing funds to New Orleans after Katrina, but then essentially accused the government of racism for not releasing the funds (which the government had actually already done). The Governor addressed this yesterday in a Facebook post.

She and Greta also discussed the presidential debate.

Governor Palin's Big Brother Breaks Down Presidential Debate

Via Facebook, Chuck, Jr. weighs in on last night's presidential debate, articulates how Mitt Romney's Day 1 plan seems modeled after Governor Palin's tenure as governor of Alaska, and offers advice to the GOP nominee:
This is our quick take on last night's debate in case anyone cares to hear about it:

Our first impression was... wow. Romney finally stepped up and came out swinging. He seemed to completely control the debate, and his opponent was definitely taken aback.

I commented to dad that Romney sounded like he tore a page right out of Sarah's playbook when he said that on his first day of office, he would sit down with Democratic leaders, listen to their concerns, iron out differences, and start working together for the betterment of all Americans. That is exactly what Sarah did in Alaska. A politician is supposed to work for the good of all the people, and Sarah never lost sight of that. She was always willing to work with those on the other side of the aisle in order to help the common good. She understood that no group of people is ever going to agree on every issue, but we have to support each others as fellow Americans.

9/11 was one of the most horrific events in our country's history. But I remember how that tragedy united us and made us more proud to be Americans than ever. I miss that feeling and I want it back. We still live in the greatest country on the planet, but this divisiveness that has been steadily growing over the past few years is destroying us. It sometimes feels like we're heading for another civil war.

A real leader is someone with the ability to bring us together to work on conquering the massive problems our country is facing today.

Lastly, I would send a warning out to Romney... watch out! You are about to be attacked by your opponents on a level that will be hard for you to imagine. They will hammer away at your character over and over again until many will start to believe the terrible things that will be said. We saw this happen firsthand to Sarah, and we wrote about it in detail in our book. So, stay strong, be honest and open, and don't let the haters get you down.
