Sarah Palin was right on the significance of Russia’s proximity to Alaska

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 15, 2014

Here is an editorial from the New York Sun shared with us by our friend Benyamin Korn, editor of the Jews for Sarah website who also writes at Algemeiner.

View From Wasilla?

Editorial of The New York Sun | September 1, 2014

“Palin Was Right” is the headline that catches our eye on the Daily Beast. It runs over an Associated Press dispatch, disclosing details of a long-ago program to prepare for an invasion of our northern territory by the Soviet Union. The AP has worked itself up into something of a swivet about this. To us the FBI looks ever more far-signed now that the Europeans are scrambling to see whether the Russians have actually invaded Ukraine and President Obama is admitting in respect of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria that he lacks a strategy.

Where is J. Edgar Hoover when we need him? He was apparently behind the program in Alaska. Between 1950 and 1959, the AP reports, the FBI “recruited and trained fishermen, bush pilots, trappers, and other private citizens across Alaska for a covert network to feed wartime intelligence to the military.” The idea was that when the Reds got across the Bering Straight, these agents would know of pre-placed caches of radio equipment and survival supplies and start transmitting intelligence back to our government. Smart. They could see Russia from their houses.

Governor Palin, of course, didn’t actually say “I can see Russia from my house.” That was Tina Fey parodying her reply to Charlie Gibson, to whom she said of Russia: “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska.” But Mrs. Palin did actually comprehend the significance of Russia’s proximity to America. The secret program AP reports on was codenamed “Washtub.” The wire advises that “with the benefit of hindsight, it would be easy to dismiss ‘Washtub’ as a harebrained scheme born of paranoia.”

Washtub, the AP says, reflected “genuine worry about Soviet intentions and a sense of U.S. vulnerability.” It notes that as the plan was being shaped in 1950, “Soviet-backed North Korea invaded South Korea, triggering a war on the peninsula that some in the Pentagon saw as a deliberate move by Moscow to distract Washington before invading Europe. The previous summer the Soviets stunned the world by exploding their first atomic bomb. Also in 1949, the U.S. locked arms with Western Europe to form the NATO alliance.” Plus Mao declared victory in China.

Gov. Palin: Tom Emmer for Congress (MN-6)

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 15, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this afternoon:

Sarah Palin

Tom Emmer (MN-6)

Career politicians in D.C. better start investing in “fight straps” before Tom Emmer gets there. This former hockey player, coach, and current hockey dad won’t have any patience for their “gross misconduct.” Tom is a proven conservative whose private sector and family experience have instilled the principles of hard work, free markets, and less government regulation. A fourth-generation Minnesotan, Tom runs the lumber business his great grandfather founded. As a husband and a father of seven Tom knows a thing or two about leadership! He’s pro-life, a supporter of our Second Amendment rights, and won’t be a “duster” in Congress. So, Minnesota, let’s work together to send Tom Emmer to Washington and put the career politicians in the penalty box!

Sarah Palin “one ups” the paparazzi

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 15, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this evening:

Sarah Palin
Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid “exclusive” of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga. How about we take away their “exclusive” and I’ll give you the photos first, for free! Yup, here’s what I looked like sans makeup, drowning in sweat when the camera rolled; looking much like a sheepdog, I’d say. No one said workouts were glamorous!

Gov. Palin: Thank a vet for helping keep that Star Spangled Banner waving over America

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 15, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page yesterday:

Sarah Palin

Following a night filled with rockets’ red glare and bombs bursting in air, Francis Scott Key awoke 200 years ago this morning to see our beautiful flag still flying over Baltimore Harbor at dawn’s early light. The stunning sight of the red, white, and blue banner calmly waving in the wind following a night of fierce battle inspired Key to pen the poem “The Star Spangled Banner,” which later became our national anthem and my personal favorite song. My family and I were fortunate to visit Fort McHenry in Baltimore during our 2011 “One Nation” bus tour – a truly memorable stop! Every time I hear this beautiful song and place my hand over my heart, I feel it bursting with pride to be an American, and I’m thankful to vets – like my son and others – who have fought hard to keep us the land of the free and the home of the brave! Thank a vet today for their sacrifices to keep us free, and to keep that Star Spangled Banner waving over an America where we can trust that truth and justice will always ultimately prevail.

– Sarah Palin

What a beautiful and diverse land we live in where one song can inspire so many great renditions! Here are a few to inspire you today:

Gov. Palin endorses Clint Didier for Congress (WA-4)

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 12, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page yesterday:

Sarah Palin

Clint Didier For U.S. Congress (WA-4)

Clint Didier has lived an amazing life, and he has never forgotten where he came from or stopped helping others along the way. Born on a farm in Washington state, Clint got his hands dirty and learned the value of hard work early in life. After completing his education, Clint played in the NFL and in three Super Bowls, helping to win two of them. When he retired, he returned to what he knew best by bringing his family back to Washington state and returning to farming. Clint didn’t give up on football either; he’s coached his former high school team and led them to two State Championships. Now, Clint sees the dangers facing our next generation and is stepping up once again to serve our nation. In Congress, Clint will fight for farmers, for lower taxes, and less government. He understands hard work and the concerns of everyday Americans because he’s one of us. We need more citizens like Clint Didier in Congress. Let’s work together to send this champ to Congress!

- Sarah Palin

Gov. Palin: Obama and Kerry so full of deception Americans should be concerned about policies

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 12, 2014

Video retrieved from sarahnettoo

Governor Palin talked with Sean Hannity last night about Obama’s ISIS speech.  Here are excerpts from the transcript:

HANNITY: John Kerry, We’re not at war with ISIS, the president, The Islamic State is not Islamic. That came out of the speech last night. We can’t get a definition of victory out of the administration. And the president said it was a fantasy just a short time ago to help the Syrian opposition. Well, I guess now he’s helping the doctors, farmers and pharmacists that he thought was a fantasy to help a few weeks back!

PALIN: Well, dear Lord, these boys are so arrogant, and that’s getting in the way of sound policy that will keep America secure and our allies. Here John Kerry saying, yes, we’re not at war with ISIS. Well, John, ISIS is at war with us, the president saying previously that ISIS could be managed — no, Barack, you manage your golf foursome perhaps, but you don’t manage a threat like this. You destroy the threat. And to claim last night also our president saying ISIS is not Islamic — ISIS says they’re Islamic.

They are so full of deception that America should be absolutely concerned with the policies that are going on. And as I watched the speech last night, Sean, the thought going through mind is I owe America a global apology because John McCain — through all of this, John McCain should be our president! He had the advice today, so giving to Barack Obama, and he will not listen to it, about the residual forces that must be left behind in order to secure the peace in Iraq that we had fought so hard for!


HANNITY: As you’re saying this, I want to put up a map because I want to show as you’re speaking about the cities — all of these cities — and you can see them all — Tal Afar, Mosul, Sinjar, and you know, run through the whole list of them there, that this is now area controlled because the president did not employ the strategy — bragged about pulling out 140,000 troops. If he would have done this a year ago, Fallujah, Tikrit, Mosul — these wouldn’t have been taken over now by ISIS! He said ISIS is not a state!

PALIN: Absolutely.

PALIN: That looks like a state to me.

PALIN: Well, and ISIS calls themselves a state also. But no, that triangle, of course, which is the foundation in the region of their power — for it to be taken over by the bad guys, that is something that could have been avoided, could have been avoided had Barack Obama listened to the best military advice. And that was, Barack, you have to leave that residual force in order to continue what it is that we’re doing.

We don’t have to have combat troops over there at that time, but the residual force in order to secure. But no, and now here we are saying, Well, it’s going to take boots on the ground to win this thing, and yet we’re not going to send boots on the ground. We’re going to contract this thing out when there’s no mightier power than the red, white and blue?

HANNITY: Let me ask you this. When the president says that the Islamic State is not Islamic, when he says that ISIS not a state but they have more territory, bigger than the size of Belgium — so they have the money. They’re more brutal. Now they have the territory, maybe not recognized by the United Nations, but they certainly own a lot of that territory.

And the president said another thing. He said that ISIS has no vision. I’m thinking, don’t they have a vision? Isn’t what they were doing in Mosul, either convert or die — isn’t that a vision for a caliphate where the world is dominated by their brand of Islam?

PALIN: Sean, it’s not just a vision that’s so obvious. It’s an articulated mission that they’re on, and that is the caliphate. That is a takeover of the region. And guess what? We’re next on the hit list.

So when Barack Obama, like the rest of us, hear these bad guys, these terrorists, promising that they will raise the flag of Allah over our White House, for the life of me, I don’t know why he does not take this serious, the threat, because, yes, it’s more than a vision. They’re — just like Hitler did all those years ago when a war could have been avoided because Hitler, too, did not hide his intentions — well, ISIS — these guys aren’t hiding their intentions, either.

Here is an excellent article about the 9/11 commemoration in New York City today:

9/11 victims’ families and New Yorkers commemorate 13th anniversary of terrorist attacks

Family members of the Sept. 11, 2011 attacks and the 1993 WTC bombing commemorated those who died with a reading of the names at the 9/11 Memorial on the 13th anniversary of those attacks. Moments of silence were also being held throughout the day to mark key moments during the 9/11 attacks.

There are two photogalleries on the website that can be accessed here.

Thirteen years after the darkest day of his life, Philip Hayes trekked to the city all the way from California to remember his fire safety director father and the nearly 3,000 other victims of the 9/11 attacks.

“I took the red-eye flight and came straight here,” said Hayes, 60, whose retired firefighter dad, also named Philip Hayes, rescued children from a day care center near the World Trade Center before he was killed.

“My father died a hero with all the other people. It’s not something you just dismiss over time. I think it’s necessary and we should always come.”

Hayes was among hundreds of family members and friends who gathered at the sacred site Thursday to hail the city’s 9/11 heroes and pay tribute to the victims.

Some family members carried large photos of their loved ones. Others descended on the solemn site carrying bouquets of flowers, their faces etched in sadness.

As part of the now sad but familiar anniversary ritual, anguished relatives read the names of all the victims killed in New York, at the Pentagon and aboard Flight 93.

Posted on the 9/11 Memorial Facebook page (h/tp  Guy Kawasaki):

On this day in 2001, the city, the country, and the world united together in the face of unimaginable tragedy. Today, on the 13th anniversary of 9/11, we gather together once again to honor and remember the 2,983 men, women, and children who were killed in the attacks of 2001 and 1993. As part of the commemoration, please observe the following moments of silence:

8:46 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crash American Airlines Flight 11 into floors 93 through 99 of the North Tower.

9:03 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crash United Airlines Flight 175 into floors 77 through 85 of the South Tower.

9:37 a.m.: Hijackers deliberately crash American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon.

9:59 a.m.: The South Tower collapses.

10:03 a.m.: After learning of the other attacks, passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 launch a counterattack on hijackers aboard their plane to try to seize control of the aircraft. In response, the hijackers crash the plane into an empty field near Shanksville, P.A.

10:28 a.m.: The North Tower collapses.

Later the 9/11 Memorial Facebook page posted a series of photos, including these two:

Tonight, the #911Memorial plaza will be open to the public beginning at 6:00 p.m. for a special viewing of Tribute in Light. It will illuminate the New York City sky just south of the Memorial site. The Memorial will remain open until midnight for the anniversary. #Honor911 #TributeInLight

Prime Minister Netanyahu tweeted this photo and comment:

The citizens of Israel commemorate the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Gov. Palin: Go big or go home, Mr. President.

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 11, 2014


Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this morning:

Sarah Palin

War is hell. So go big or go home, Mr. President. Big means bold, confident, wise assurance from a trustworthy Commander-in-Chief that it shall all be worth it. Charge in, strike hard, get out. Win.

Obama famously claims to despise the “theater” and “optics” of the presidency. In tonight’s speech he illustrated the “optics” of toughness. He tried to show a war-weary America that he’s tough in his speech concerning the threat of ISIS/ISIL. “The One” who believes in leading from behind can’t have it both ways. He sure wasn’t concerned about “optics” when he let the crisis starring this Islamic death cult reach this point as he dithered and danced and golfed the time away while the Middle East exploded into chaos.

Tonight he announced he’s flipped and will finally militarily engage inside Syria – the red line he’d set and then forgotten about surfaced again. This, after three and a half years of civil war, 200,000 people killed, and millions displaced amid horrifying humanitarian conditions. Last month, he authorized U.S. military action to stall ISIS’ momentum as it’s taken nearly complete control of Iraq. Tonight, President Obama pledged to fight Islamic militants “wherever they exist” with a very small coalition of the willing. (Can you blame foreign nations for not trusting the resolve of this president enough to join us? Right now he has a coalition of nine; President Bush had over 40 allied countries that could trust America’s leadership.)

Remember the inexperienced presidential candidate speaking from Germany at the Brandenburg Gate (2008)? Or the know-it-all state senator (2002), known for merely voting “present” on the big things, yet lecturing about this “dumb war” he claimed was a distraction from his desire to force income redistribution to create security. Remember him? Today, he seems more worried about contradicting his campaign promises (2002-2008) and typical political poll angst than leading as president (2009-present). These are the “optics” he’s worried about.

The rise of the animalistic terror group, ISIS, is the result of Obama’s lead-from-behind foreign policy. He had broadcast his war strategy for all the enemy to see in Iraq, so the enemy could wait us out and strike as soon as America turned tail and turned away from all we’d sacrificed there. Terrorists who we had under control got to regroup and grow after Obama’s premature pull out. Those are the facts, and some tough talking speech is still just talk. Ronald Reagan was described by the Soviets as a politician for whom “words and deeds are one and the same.” When Reagan said his vision of the Cold War was “we win, they lose,” he meant it, and his policies won the Cold War. The real question Americans and our allies must ask is whether Obama-the-lecturer’s words will translate into deeds.

Go big and be real, Mr. President, if you’ve really changed your mind again and now wish to engage. You must acknowledge reality: the organization calling itself the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is, in fact, “Islamic.” Not many of us pretend to be experts on the Muslim religion, but these terrorists obviously consider themselves Muslim and they believe what they’re horrifically doing to innocents is part of their “religion of peace.” So, you can use your soapbox to fiercely encourage the sane, civilized Muslims of the world to tell ISIS and all these sickening terrorists that they’re wrong. In the meantime, we must identify and understand the enemy by at least acknowledging their ideological motivation and identity. Our president is naive to ignore this.

ISIS must be stopped in Iraq and Syria before we need to stop them anywhere else. As they dominate the region they head for us; we’re next on the hit list. For the sake of peace-loving people in America and throughout the world, let’s hope Barack Obama means what he says when he uses terms like “defeating ISIS.” He is so inconsistent in leading a failed agenda that it’s virtually impossible to put any hope in his new promises, because either his past statements shrugging off ISIS as just a “JV squad” was all talk or tonight’s new terminology is just all talk.

We should honor and understand our brave men and women of the U.S. armed forces today more than ever. Please do not support politicians who join Obama in diminishing our military. Our finest, trained to fight for what is right and determined to win, deserve our support. Thank you, military, may you be heard when you pray America’s leadership understands that if we’re in it, then we’re in it to win it; no half measures. Troops, we are always with you.

Gov. Palin endorses Zach Dasher for Congress

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 11, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook post yesterday:

Sarah Palin

A few months ago, I had the chance to hear Zach Dasher speak right before his uncle (the Duck Commander himself, Phil Robertson) addressed the audience at the Republican Leadership Conference in Louisiana. After, I told Zach that we need more young, passionate warriors like him in Washington. Zach Dasher is just the type of next generation conservative we need in Congress, and I’m glad he and his family have accepted the call and the challenge to enter the political fray. Zach is a small businessman, a husband to Jill, a dad to four beautiful kids, and a leader within his church. He’s pro-life, a staunch supporter of our Second Amendment rights, and will fight for a smaller federal government.

While some would expect Zach to ride the wave of our friends and his famous Duck Commanding family, he’s chosen a different path. You need to look no further than his first campaign ad for the positive, hopeful, and conservative message that more in our party need to embrace. As Zach says, “let’s wake up our nation and get back to work.”

Zach Dasher understands what our Founders meant by the “blessings of liberty” and will be a happy, happy, happy warrior in Washington to restore them! We need more young conservative citizens like Zach to take a stand and fight for our country’s future. His candidacy inspires me and I am proud to support him!
