Video: Governor Palin Speaks Life

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Here's a very short video clip of Governor Palin speaking at the Shareholders in Life Banquet in Las Vegas on Friday night. If more video footage becomes available, I will post it. As reported here, on the same day President Obama was "blessing" Planned Parenthood's death agenda, the Governor was advocating a culture of life.

Gov. Palin Blasts Media and Politicians Yukking it Up at WHCD

Via Facebook, Governor Palin sounds off on those in attendance at the White House Correspondents Dinner:

Yuk it up media and pols. While America is buried in taxes and a fight for our rights, the permanent political class in DC dresses up and has a prom to make fun of themselves. No need for that, we get the real joke.

Tonight, Governor Palin Advocates Life While President Obama Lauds Planned Parenthood's Death Agenda

Friday, April 26, 2013

Governor Palin's latest Facebook note points out the clear difference between right and wrong, light and darkness, life and death. While President Obama lauds Planned Parenthood, despite all the racism and controversy attached to it, the Governor is in Nevada, where she'll give a speech tonight encouraging a culture of life and love. The contrast couldn't be more obvious. I'll take one Sarah Palin over a million Barack Obamas any day.

Governor Palin writes:

There’s no such thing as a coincidence. Today I’m looking forward to speaking at a pro-life women’s resource center in Nevada. I intend again to remind women that we are strong enough and capable enough to choose life and work together to create a culture that empowers everyone to live to the fullest. How ironic that on this same day President Obama will be headlining a gala event for the highly controversial and repeatedly discredited organization Planned Parenthood. He's the first sitting president to speak to them, but then again he’s also the first president who is so radically pro-abortion that as a state senator he refused three times to vote in favor of legislation that would simply provide medical attention to babies born alive from botched abortions. Considering the role Planned Parenthood has played in looking the other way while the mass murdering abortion doctor Gosnell butchered babies born alive from his horrific infanticide procedures and abused his women patients, it’s perhaps not surprising that this same president sees nothing wrong with allowing his name to be so openly associated with this organization.

Please take a look at the following excerpt from Jonah Goldberg’s book “Liberal Fascism” for information about the racist and eugenicist origins of Planned Parenthood, then ask yourself again why in the world our president would “bless” the cruel underlying efforts of an organization like this. Do you want him to spend your family’s hard earned tax dollars funding this culture of death? Surely there are people of good conscience within Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion centers who will feel the imperative within themselves to find other ways to help women in their time of need. There are so many better answers than merely eliminating the most precious, promising ingredient we have on earth – innocent human life. May efforts to cull the defenseless and vulnerable not be “blessed,” instead may God bless those who decide that respecting a culture of life in America is the only way to get us out of the mess we’re in.

Governor Palin Calls Out Anti-Christian Tactic

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

I respect Governor Palin more and more because of such boldness as she displayed today. Christian values are constantly under attack in this country. Meanwhile, people bend over backwards so as not to offend radical Islam. Unreal! Scratching Scripture off of military scopes? Really?

Leave it to the Governor to cut right to the chase and not mince words about anything, including anti-Christian tactics.

Via Facebook:

Who's giving the order? Who has the guts to take responsibility for this nonsense?

This is what she's talking about as per a Todd Starnes article:
The U.S. Army is directing troops to remove a Bible inscription that a vendor etched into the serial numbers of weapon scopes, Fox News has learned.

Soldiers at Fort Wainwright in Alaska told Fox News they received a directive to turn in their scopes so the Bible references could be removed.

The scopes were made by Trijicon and referenced New Testament passages in John 8:12 and Second Corinthians 4:6. The verses appeared at the end of the scope serial numbers – “JN8:12” and “2COR4:6.”

“The biblical verse (JN8:12) must be removed utilizing a Dremel type tool and then painted black,” read instructions on how to remedy the matter.

After the letters and numbers were scraped off, soldiers were directed to use apply black paint to ensure the verses were totally covered.

Trig Palin at Five

Thursday, April 18, 2013


It's hard to imagine that Trig Palin is five years old today. My, how time flies! Trig is a precious little boy who has brought the Palins incredible joy and inspired a nation.

Governor Palin has transparently discussed the range of emotions she went through upon learning that her son would be born with Down syndrome. There was so much she didn't know. She didn't think she could handle a special needs child. She worried about his future. As always, she took her feelings of uncertainty and insecurity to God, Who helped her wrap her brain and heart around this new season of her life. And now she cannot imagine a day without Trig. No one in the family can. Trig Palin is the joy of their lives!

And he's cute, too!

Via Facebook, Governor Palin posted two pictures of Trig, here and here, and wrote:
Pretty spring day to celebrate Trig's 5th birthday!

Happy Birthday, Trig, and God bless you abundantly! The best is yet to come, little man!

Governor Palin's 'Time 100' Tribute to Senator Rand Paul


Governor Palin wrote a tribute to Senator Rand Paul for Time 100 today. Paul is featured in Time's 2013 version of "100 Most Influential People in the World":
When the Tea Party movement wanted to send a message to the Senate in 2010, it elected a clear-sighted eye doctor from the Bluegrass State. In a D.C. too often defined by the venal equivocations of a permanent political class more interested in consolidating its own power than in upholding the Constitution or defending the common good, Senator Rand Paul is a voice of reason awakening the public to what must be done to restore our prosperity and preserve the blessings of liberty for future generations. His brand of libertarian-leaning conservatism attracts young voters, and recently he inspired the nation with his Capraesque filibuster demanding basic answers about our use of drones. I sent him some caribou jerky from Alaska to help keep up his strength on the Senate floor. There’s more where that came from for this bold Senator with 20/20 vision willing to take a stand for liberty.

Gov. Palin: On the Iron Lady's Legacy

Wednesday, April 17, 2013


Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was laid to rest today. Governor Palin, who has spoken often of her great respect for the Iron Lady, posted the following on Facebook this evening:
A friend sent me a recap of this mornings beautiful funeral service for Margaret Thatcher. How fitting that they read from Ephesians 6:10-18 imploring us to put on “the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Certainly Margaret Thatcher wore such armor in her many battles.

It is so very sad that in this sensitive time of needing to show respect for humanity in general and for “the good guys” in particular our White House did not even send an official envoy to her funeral. Salt in the wound is learning that Senator Menendez, who was recently in the news because of allegations of corruption and even possibly a prostitution scandal, gutted the Senate Resolution honoring Mrs. Thatcher’s world changing achievements. So very sad. Not only is this an insult to our British allies, it’s an insult to women.

Margaret Thatcher admirably never styled herself as a woman leader. She regarded herself as simply a leader, and got the job done regardless of her sex. But the fact remains that she was the most important female leader of the 20th century and will be remembered as one of the most important leaders of all time. Where is the outrage from American feminists at the obvious official snub of this iconic woman who was one of our country’s most loyal allies? (I guess maybe the American sisterhood is too busy at the moment trying to enforce the media blackout of that Philadelphia mass-murderer’s trial for killing our youngest sisters in the womb.)

Margaret Thatcher was the epitome of everything feminists claim they support – a self-made woman who rose to power on her own merits without the patronage of any man. It’s time these liberal hypocrites showed her and women in general the same respect conservatives have all along. It’s disgraceful that America’s politicians snubbed her achievements, as Mrs. Thatcher helped secure our own union while setting a mighty example for women around the world. Like all great leaders, she belongs to the ages now, and I trust that time will only burnish the Iron Lady’s shining legacy when all these petty slights are long forgotten.

Governor Palin: Victory for Second Amendment

The Senate struck down measures today to usher in gun control and restrict Second Amendment rights. As common sense people have been saying all along, criminals, intent on doing evil, don't follow the law. They won't be the ones affected by background checks and gun registry. Law-abiding citizens, who are just that--law-abiding--are the ones who would find themselves at the mercy of these mandates. Today's vote is good news.

Governor Palin, who tweeted on Monday that she would not support politicians who supported more Second Amendment limits, responded to today's vote:

Governor Palin takes a stand again for the Second Amendment. She posted the following on Facebook today:

Governor Palin: Skewed White House Priorities

Friday, April 12, 2013

Governor Palin, via Facebook:

100% skewed White House priorities: The Blue Angels' wings get snipped, but the White House party with the 1% rocks on...

The Governor shared her brother Chuck's status concerning this:
I'm so sorry to hear that the Navy Blue Angels and the Airforce Thunderbirds have been forced to cancel their performances this year. These two amazing groups have provided inspiration for millions over the years and have served as a terrific recruiting tool for all branches of the armed services. At least they're still boogying in the White House.

Governor Palin: Planned Parenthood's 'Horrific Procedure'

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Governor Palin drew attention to an article written by Kirsten Powers. Everybody needs to know what has taken place inside this Philadelphia abortion clinic. If it doesn't make you sick to your stomach, something is seriously wrong. God help us.

Via Facebook, the Governor writes:

"We've forgotten what belongs on Page One."

Kudos to Democrat and fellow Alaskan Kirsten Powers for getting the important truth out there on this horrific story, and for USA Today for printing it. Sadly, but not surprisingly, the mainstream media has once again shirked their journalistic duty in exposing the truth behind this horrific procedure which Planned Parenthood tries to spin as untrue. As many in our party call for "social truces" and encourage candidates to stop talking about social issues, I'd remind them to heed the advice of Lady Thatcher: "This is no time to go wobbly." If our country does not start to focus on returning to a culture that respects life, how can we ever expect to solve the growing problem of violence?

- Sarah Palin

Here's a portion of Powers' article:
Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven't heard about these sickening accusations?

It's not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell's former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.

NBC-10 Philadelphia reported that, Stephen Massof, a former Gosnell worker, "described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, 'literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body." One former worker, Adrienne Moton, testified that Gosnell taught her his "snipping" technique to use on infants born alive.

Massof, who, like other witnesses, has himself pleaded guilty to serious crimes, testified "It would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place." Here is the headline the Associated Press put on a story about his testimony that he saw 100 babies born and then snipped: "Staffer describes chaos at PA abortion clinic."

"Chaos" isn't really the story here. Butchering babies that were already born and were older than the state's 24-week limit for abortions is the story. There is a reason the late Democratic senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan called this procedure infanticide.

Planned Parenthood recently claimed that the possibility of infants surviving late-term abortions was "highly unusual." The Gosnell case suggests otherwise.

Governor Palin: Kids: Follow Your Dreams, But Be Practical To Be Employable…


Governor Palin offers some sage advice via Facebook. I know there are many people up to their eyeballs in debt who wish that someone had given them these words of wisdom several thousand dollars ago.

She writes:
As my family travels to Arizona for Willow’s graduation this week, allow me to be a proud mom in congratulating Willow and her classmates at Penrose Academy on this achievement and also offer advice to young people that I always give in graduation speeches about following your dreams.

In planning for her future, Willow thought long and hard about what kind of work would make her happy and provide her with a good income in today’s economy. She’s artistic and has an interest in making people feel and look their best, and as an entrepreneur with a strong work ethic she desires to be her own boss as a small business owner. With all that in mind, she decided to finish her high school requirements quite early and enroll in an academy for hair and skin, which allowed her to study abroad, visit the sets of major media productions, and work with the best of the best in the industry. She’ll be graduated this week with no debt and a great career ahead of her doing something she loves in a recession-proof industry (everyone needs their hair cut after all!).

It’s crucially important today for young people to think about the big picture when making education decisions. And the big picture is the goal of self-reliant business opportunities based on work ethic and not entitlements. One of the reasons I aggressively encouraged vocational training opportunities as governor of Alaska is because they lead to good paying jobs and happy careers. Young people should not be pressured into assuming that a college degree is the only path to employment today. It’s not. Some college degrees obviously lead to clear professions, like those in the medical and engineering fields, but that’s not the case with many of the liberal arts degrees young people today gravitate toward either because they aren’t sure what they want to do after college or because they’ve been led to believe that college life is a sort of rite of passage for any career. That might have been the case once, but the salary and career opportunities a liberal arts education alone can get you have been dramatically limited these days. It’s so sad to see young people holding expensive college diplomas that come with no practical job opportunities.

I’m not discouraging a student from getting a liberal arts degree if that is his or her dream. I am always for following your dreams. How could I be against a liberal arts education when I myself got a liberal arts degree in journalism/communications from the University of Idaho? However, I knew when I was graduated from high school what I wanted to do, so it wasn’t as if I was embarking on an expensive voyage of self-discovery. And I’m proud of the fact that I was able to pay for my degree myself and graduate debt free. See how times have changed? Back then I was able to work my way through college and pay as I went. I had to go to school part-time some semesters in order to work and intern full-time, so it took me five years instead of four to get my bachelor’s degree, for which I've been roundly criticized by the liberal media (but how many of those critics were shackled in debt after they perhaps gallivanted around the globe with their daddy’s credit card in their backpack before finally finishing college and snagging that gig at MSNBC?). It was actually possible back in the ‘80s to graduate debt free. Nowadays it is next to impossible unless you have a full scholarship. Students today often graduate with the equivalent of a mortgage in college debt for a degree they’re not even sure they can parlay into a job. As Daniel Mitchell recently wrote, young people are buried in college debt “yet they are having a hard time finding jobs because Obama’s policies are stunting the economy’s performance. And even if they do find a job, the research suggests they will get paid less. Not just today, but for the foreseeable future.”

Follow your dreams, by all means. But don’t be blind to the fact that your dreams might be achieved outside of acquiring an outrageously expensive traditional college degree. Do not be lulled into thinking that good jobs grow on trees or that the government will somehow take care of you. The bottom line is – as my dad always told me – find out what you love to do, then find out how to make a living doing it. Learning a trade can do both. No one can take those vo-tech real life skills away from you. They lead to independence, satisfaction, and a paycheck. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Kudos to Willow and all Class of 2013 students for taking this lesson to heart. We’re so proud of her!

- Sarah Palin

Governor Palin's Staff Takes On Exploitation of Thatcher's Death

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Because they're afraid of the values she holds, the influence she wields, and the common sense she articulates--and just because they're "haters"--they have used the death of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to attack Governor Palin. She, however, does not fold under their ridiculous, easily-debunked nonsense.

Via Facebook:

Dear media, *sigh*... where did you guys go to journalism school to learn it's doggone ok to just make things up?

The Governor linked to the following article, "Exclusive--Palin Advisers: 'Unconscionable' Mainstream Press Exploited Thatcher's Death For Smears," where Tony Lee exposes the lies.

Via Breitbart:
Mainstream media publications immediately exploited the passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on Monday to again advance their political agendas by falsely smearing former Alaska Gov. and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

In a rush to write whatever they could to tarnish both, outlets like Politico and the Washington Post resorted to "reporting" on a fictitious story and an imaginary trip that have already been debunked years ago.

The Post, a publication known for its liberal agenda, immediately "re-upped" the debunked story about Thatcher having snubbed Palin when Chris Cillizza, the editor of "The Fix," allowed his underling to publish parts of the disproven 2011 report.

Politico ironically included the story in its article about Thatcher as well, even though the publication debunked the story two years ago.

In 2011, a left-wing and anti-Thatcher British newspaper, the Guardian, tried to smear Palin by writing a fictitious story, with an anonymous quote, about how Thatcher supposedly snubbed Palin for a meeting that had never even been scheduled, as both camps immediately confirmed. The British newspaper also claimed a Thatcher adviser called Palin "nuts."

Rebecca Mansour, a longtime Palin advisor who would have knowledge of all of Palin's scheduled meetings, told Breitbart News that Palin never had the chance to meet Thatcher.

"Mrs. Thatcher made clear to us through her staff that there was an open invitation to meet, of course, contingent on Mrs. Thatcher's health, and this was reported in the British media," Mansour told Breitbart News. "Unfortunately, Governor Palin did not have the opportunity to travel to the UK, and she along with grateful people and nations across the globe mourn Mrs. Thatcher's loss."

Doug McMarlin, another Palin advisor, told Breitbart News that it was "unconscionable" that people would use Thatcher's passing as yet another excuse to attack Palin.

"It is unconscionable that Politico and others use the passing of such an individual as Margaret Thatcher as an opportunity for an ankle-biting missive," McMarlin told Breitbart News. "The focus should be on the life and legacy of Prime Minister Thatcher, not on using this occasion to further the agenda of reporters who don't take the time to research their own stories and create a narrative that only fits their agenda."

Mainstream media outlets, including Politico, and Thatcher's aides instantaneously debunked the story two years ago.

I'm grateful for people like Tony Lee who care about the truth and speak it to annihilate the plethora of lies and smears.

Palins to Participate in Charity Walk and Celebrate Willow's Graduation


Governor Palin is in Arizona this week where she will participate in Hope & A Future’s Strikeout Child Abuse Walk this Saturday. I love that title, taken from the Bible. Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

She posted on Facebook:
Please join Gov. Brewer and my family at Hope & A Future’s Strikeout Child Abuse Walk this Saturday at 3pm in Phoenix, Arizona. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, so join us and make a difference. Learn more and register at http://www.azhope.com/fundraising/strikeout.php

As worthy a cause as this walk is, it's not the only reason the Governor will enjoy her family time in Arizona this week. It's a special time for her daughter Willow.

Via Facebook:
This photo is from THIS MORNING in Wasilla! Tons of new snow. Tons. My sister Molly took this photo of her grill and emailed me: “Looks like I took the grill out of the shed too early again this spring!” Is it any wonder the family is excited to go to Arizona this week for Willow’s graduation as she embarks on a new career as a small business owner? And in honor of Willow's accomplishment we wanted to do something charitable. So, we'll join Gov. Brewer for the “Hope & A Future’s Strikeout Child Abuse Walk” in Phoenix on Saturday at 3pm.

Governor Palin's Thatcher Tribute in National Review Online

Monday, April 8, 2013

Governor Palin writes "The Grocer's Daughter" for National Review Online. It is a fitting tribute to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:

Today we say goodbye to a towering figure of the 20th century. With the passing of Margaret Thatcher, we’ve sadly lost the last living member of that great triumvirate that included Ronald Reagan and John Paul II — those giants who defeated the evil empire of Soviet Communism and allowed the liberation of its captive nations. We’ve also lost one of the great champions of economic freedom and democratic ideals.

Many will focus on the fact that Margaret Thatcher’s career was a collection of “firsts” for women — she was the first and youngest female Conservative-party member to stand for election, the first woman to hold the title Leader of the Opposition, and the first woman prime minister of the United Kingdom.

But Thatcher not only broke a glass ceiling; she broke a class ceiling. She was a grocer’s daughter from the back of beyond who advanced to the height of power in a class-conscious society. Like her friend Ronald Reagan, she was an underestimated underdog and political outsider. Simon Jenkins, the former editor of the Evening Standard, once said, “There was no Thatcher group within the Tory Party. . . . She was utterly and completely on her own. She simply was an outsider in every way.”

She was at heart a populist taking on the Conservative party’s old guard, who disdainfully referred to her as “That Woman.” The disdain was mutual. She referred to them as “the not so grand grandees.” As Thatcher later said, “It didn’t matter what they called me as long as I got the job done. I mean, to me they were ‘Those Grandees.’ They just don’t know what life is like. They haven’t been through it. And eventually if they didn’t help our cause, they had to go. But it didn’t bother me too much that they were patronizing like that. Frankly, the people, who are the true gentlemen, deal with others for what they are, not who their father was. Let’s face it: Maybe it took ‘That Woman’ to get things done, and the real reason why they said it was because they knew they just hadn’t got it within them to see things through.”

Governor Palin Expresses Sadness at Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's Passing

Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has passed away. What an example of common sense conservatism. What a trailblazer. Governor Palin expressed her condolences via Facebook:

We’re deeply saddened at the loss of Margaret Thatcher. While the Iron Lady is sadly gone, her iron will, her unfailing trust in what is right and just, and her lessons to all of us will live on forever. She was a trailblazer like no other. We lost an icon, but her legacy, as solid as iron, will live on in perpetuity.

Governor Palin: Holocaust Remembrance Day

Sunday, April 7, 2013


Always supportive of Israel, Governor Palin posted a simple, yet important, message on Facebook today in recognition of Holocaust Remembrance Day:
May we never forget.

She then linked to an article at The Jerusalem Post, which reads in part:
Preparations are underway across the country for the observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day, which begins on Sunday evening.

The central theme of this year’s ceremony is defiance and rebellion during the Holocaust, Yad Vashem announced, marking 70 years since the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

Memorial activities will begin with a state ceremony at Yad Vashem’s Warsaw Ghetto Square at 8 p.m., during which President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will deliver addresses. Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird will also be in attendance.

[...]

The theme of heroism will be on further display at the Ghetto Fighters’ House in the Galilee on Sunday, with another six survivors lighting memorial torches at a ceremony that organizers believe will draw 10,000 attendees.

Finance Minister Yair Lapid will give the opening remarks, followed by retired Labor Party politician and Ghetto Fighters’ House chairman Ophir Paz- Pines.

The survivors chosen to light torches are Dr. Lucien Lazare, a former member of the French underground; Aviva Blum Waks, the daughter of Warsaw Ghetto fighter Avraham Blum; Semion Rozenfeld, a captured Red Army soldier who took part in an uprising in the Sobibor concentration camp; Yehuda “Poldek” Maymon, a member of the Polish resistance and a retired Israeli naval officer who was interned in Auschwitz; Julian Zanoda, an Algerian Jew who at age 10 took part in the underground revolt that facilitated the American invasion and prevented the destruction of Algerian Jewry; and Shimon Zuckerman, the son of Yitzhak “Antek” Zuckerman, one of the leaders of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and deputy to Mordechai Anielewicz.

As the Governor said in a recent Facebook post, let us continue to "pray for peace in the Holy Land."

Governor Palin: CNN, American Viewers Are Smarter Than You Assume

Governor Palin, via Facebook:

CNN: it’s no wonder your ratings still aren't matching competitors. American viewers are smarter than you assume, and we simply want truth in reporting.

Please see the article linked below. Wolf Blitzer’s recent coverage of this story really was blisteringly dishonest. First, because he didn’t reach out to me or the SarahPAC staff for rebuttal. Second, because he failed to disclose the anti-tea party associations of the “architect” of this story whose organization is a competitor of my efforts to advance the candidacies of genuine grassroots conservatives – not those handpicked by the permanent political class. As the article explains, in my recent CPAC speech I gulped and denounced the consultants who engage in campaign hopping and have made a racket out of multi-million dollar failures each election cycle for themselves and their cronies. What a shame CNN continues to plug away in a floundering direction with reports like this. The shame is that they employ some top-notch reporters who no doubt believe in truth in journalism, but examples like this diminish the good reporters’ good efforts.

As a side note, I find it interesting that CNN recently disclosed that their old “Crossfire” show might hit their airwaves again. Wasn’t CNN among those who issued blistering criticism about the use of a “crossfire” icon in 2010 to represent political districts we wished to see represented by commonsense conservatives? CNN, among others, implied that using a “crossfire” icon (which was a tactic first employed by Democrats to illustrate political maps of districts they “targeted” to win) was inciting violence.

Kevin Scholla Reports on Gov. Palin's Terri Schiavo Speech

Saturday, April 6, 2013

Picture taken by Adrienne Ross

Last night, I attended the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network’s Award Gala. Governor Palin was the keynote speaker, and she inspired the crowd with her passionate defense for life and human dignity. Kevin Scholla, host of The Palin Update with Kevin Scholla, was also in attendance, and he penned the following summary of the event:
On a Friday night in Philadelphia, Governor Sarah Palin proved what we already expected. She was the perfect choice to keynote an event designed to honor Terri Schiavo and defend life. Palin delivered a heartfelt speech at the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network’s Award Gala in front of a packed ballroom of supporters. “Her plight, her journey, taught Americans who we are and what we can be,” Palin said speaking about Schiavo. “Her story is certainly not over.” Governor Palin referred to Schiavo as a beautiful young woman with unquenchable spirit. She assured the crowd that Terri continues to teach with a spirit that is alive.

The battle for life in this country is an ongoing struggle. Palin has been on the front lines defending the unborn as well as those in a persistent vegetative state. Terri Schiavo’s case captured the nation back in 2005 when despite the best efforts of her family, she was allowed to starve to death. Governor Palin contends Terri did not die in vain. “The fight is not over,” Palin said. Terri is still teaching us. We’re gaining momentum. Terri’s making a difference.”

“She led the way with her determination and the declaration that she wanted to live,” said Palin.

[...]

While choosing to keep a special needs child is not the same situation as what Terri Schiavo’s family went through, Palin can certainly relate to the faith, hope, and love displayed by Schiavo’s family, the Schindlers. Palin let them know their Terri still matters. “All the Terri’s of the world are worth it,” Palin said.

Perhaps the most poignant part of the speech was Palin’s questioning of just who gets to determine so-called “quality of life”. She pointed out that the answer is certainly not some DC bureaucrat.

Palin drew laughs when she spoke of her bumper sticker that reads “My kid has more chromosomes than your kid.” She panned Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, ripped ObamaCare, and talked about how she brought death panels to light. The idea was originally scoffed at by many. Now, even some liberals have to admit this glaring truth.

Loud roars of approval were thrown Palin’s way throughout her detailed remarks including when she encouraged Americans from “Florida to Alaska to Philadelphia; From your house to The White Hose” to stand up for life.

“We’re God’s,” Palin said with conviction. “We have worth that's immeasurable.”

[...]

“The family is the cornerstone of our society,” Palin said. “From the tiniest baby in the womb to the most powerful man in the world, we are equal.” These comments were met with roars of approval.

America is the greatest nation in the world. Sarah Palin knows one of the reasons for this is our defense of life.

“One man’s pursuit of happiness must not take away another’s right to life,” Palin said.

Governor Palin: When Obama Attempts to Pick Winners and Losers, We the People Lose

Governor Palin posted the following on Facebook yesterday:

Once again, the American public lost when the Obama administration attempted to pick “winners and losers” in the free market. Today the electric car company Fisker Automotive, which received nearly $200 million in taxpayer money, is laying off three-fourths of its U.S. workers.

The Anaheim, CA-based start up has failed at pretty much every level – especially when it comes to the company’s ultra expensive luxury electric hybrid, the Karma (what a name!), which is assembled in Finland and received a green-energy loan to transition the assembly to the U.S., something that never happened.

This losing tax-subsidized venture joins other past losers like the Obama-subsidized Volt that gets 40 miles per battery charge, or like the Obama-subsidized Tesla that turns into a “brick” when the battery completely discharges and then costs $40,000 to repair.

This is really just the latest manifestation of the administration’s crony capitalism as their green energy buddies benefit from this atrocious waste of taxpayer money. Americans really need to get outraged by these wasteful ventures. As we’ve seen time and time again, We the People are always stuck subsidizing the left’s “losers.”

So what’s the solution and where do Americans go with our outrage? Stand up against the crony capitalism and elect only those who understand and will let America’s marketplace dictate economic successes, instead of letting politicians (some who have never run any business nor even worked in the private sector) choose free enterprises’ winners and losers. Take a stand, friends. Nothing will change unless you do.

Dr. King, Planned Parenthood, and Today's Civil Rights Struggle

Thursday, April 4, 2013

As I posted on Facebook earlier today:

45 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. He fought for civil rights and quoted the Declaration of Independence, that all men had the rights to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." I wonder how many of our liberal brothers and sisters will talk today about the injustice he fought against, while refusing to acknowledge the injustice of millions of black babies--more than any others--being aborted, Planned Parenthood purposely targeting black communities, and the founder's stated purpose to rid the world of us. Usually, their concern about injustice and their fight against racism stops at Planned Parenthood's door, and the Democratic Party likes it that way. I love y'all, but I've got to speak the truth. How's that for truth?

Governor Palin: World Autism Awareness Day

Tuesday, April 2, 2013


Governor Palin honors World Autism Awareness Day and her nephew Karcher. Via Facebook:
Today is World Autism Awareness Day. There is such a need for us to understand and appreciate the complexities and mysteries of the outward challenges of those who suffer from autism, as well as their inner goodness, intelligence and unique gifts. I think of so many kids challenged by this, including my beautiful nephew, Karcher, and the patient, sacrificial families doing all they can to nurture and teach and protect their loved ones. My nephew has greater life tests and trials than most kids will ever have to deal with, but he’s also incredibly gifted intellectually, and we love him so very much. Karcher is one of the brightest students in his high school senior class; he'll be gradated next month, and he proudly works alongside his dad at the service station they own and operate in Anchorage. Autism truly is a mystery. May God bless all of these children and families, and may God give our nation a compassionate heart to better understand the purity and perspective our special needs community has to offer.

And congratulations Karch!

Warrior from Wasilla vs. Brick House from the White House

Monday, April 1, 2013


It's good to set aside the seriousness for a bit of lightheartedness every once in a while. April 1st is as good a day as any, although this is no joke, as much as President Obama would like it to be.

Since 2008, we've all heard how in shape and athletic he is, what a huge basketball fan he is, and how great his skills are. In fact, those were some of the things that added to his "cool quotient," elevating him to superstar status in the eyes of so many. Even now, with the economy a mess, unemployment high, morale low, and freedoms threatened, people readily talk about how "likable" this President is. After all, he can shoot hoops and pick brackets. Never mind the shape of the country.

Just as the great expectations for his presidency have gone unmet, it appears that the talk-up of his basketball creds were also delusions of grandeur. Having an opportunity to put on a little show for the children at the White House Easter Egg Roll, President Obama went 2 for 22, missing shots from all over the court. This includes layups--from the left side, mind you, with no one guarding him. When a lefty misses a wide-open layup from the left side, let's just say that's, well, pathetic. No wonder someone in the crowd called out, "Brick house!"

As a player and former coach, I could give him a few pointers. I noticed a couple things about his follow-through and release, but I digress. He probably wouldn't take my advice anyway. I also noticed he was loath to try his hand on the right side of the aisle court. Interesting. This tells me all I need to know about his offensive game, which would make guarding him a pleasure.

Everybody has a bad night, but 2 for 22?

Oh, how I'd like to see Mr. 2 for 22 take the court against a certain #22 who secured a championship for her team on a broken ankle! The Warrior from Wasilla vs. the Brick House from the White House. Now, that would be worth paying good money to see!

ABC reports:
President Obama was ice cold today on the basketball court.

Shooting hoops with children and Washington Wizards at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, the president sank just two of 22 shots.

[...]

And then it began. A series of painful misses and air balls.

After six more failed free throws, Obama traded balls. After 10 misses, he moved in closer. After 11, he tried a few layups.

After the president missed 13 shots in a row from various distances, 10-year old Kahron Campbell stepped in to help.

Campbell made the layup on his first try.

Then, finally, on his 18th attempt of the morning, the president made his layup.

Read the full article here. Even more entertaining, go there to see the video clip.

We all know President Obama is big on everyone paying his "fair share." Well, if misses were money, he certainly has paid his and then some.
