Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin were the top picks of  voters in the Western Conservative Summit straw poll for president in 2016.

All three were speakers at the three-day event that concluded Sunday at Denver’s Hyatt Regency hotel. Carson, a columnist and retired neurosurgeon, received 22 percent of the vote, Cruz had 13 percent and Palin 12 percent.

The ballot included two dozen Republicans. The rest of the top 10, in order of finish, were Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Sen. Rick Santorum, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Rand Paul, former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey, former Rep. Allen West and Rep. Paul Ryan.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were among others on the ballot.

Votes were accepted in person, via text and online. The fifth annual event drew a crowd of 3,300, said John Andrews, director of the Centennial Institute, the conservative think tank at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood.

Gov. Palin: Obama knew about border crisis but ignored it while focused on reelection and push for amnesty

——————–

Obama Knew of Border “Crisis” Prior to Reelection; Lied About That, Too!

The Washington Post has a bombshell article out about how “top officials at the White House and the State Department had repeatedly been warned of the potential for a further explosion in the number of migrant children since the crisis began escalating two years ago.”

The White House didn’t want to deal with the issue because they were focused on Obama’s 2012 reelection and the push for amnesty, and this burgeoning crisis didn’t look good for the President politically. So they willfully ignored it and in fact actively stoked it when Obama issued his own version of the DREAM Act by executive fiat, which led the illegal immigrants to believe they would be granted amnesty.

Here are the two questions Congress needs to demand answers to: What did the President know and when did he know it?

You may recall that those questions were asked of another President who was also the subject of a Washington Post expose.

This is the article Governor Palin referred to:

Obama aides were warned of brewing border crisis

July 19

Nearly a year before President Obama declared a humanitarian crisis on the border, a team of experts arrived at the Fort Brown patrol station in Brownsville, Tex., and discovered a makeshift transportation depot for a deluge of foreign children.

Thirty Border Patrol agents were assigned in August 2013 to drive the children to off-site showers, wash their clothes and make them sandwiches. As soon as those children were placed in temporary shelters, more arrived. An average of 66 were apprehended each day on the border and more than 24,000 cycled through Texas patrol stations in 2013. In a 41-page report to the Department of Homeland Security, the team from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) raised alarms about the federal government’s capacity to manage a situation that was expected to grow worse.

The researchers’ observations were among the warning signs conveyed to the Obama administration over the past two years as a surge of Central American minors has crossed into south Texas illegally. More than 57,000 have entered the United States this year, swamping federal resources and catching the government unprepared.

The administration did too little to heed those warnings, according to interviews with former government officials, outside experts and immigrant advocates, leading to an inadequate response that contributed to this summer’s escalating crisis.

Federal officials viewed the situation as a “local problem,” said Victor Manjarrez Jr., a former Border Patrol station chief who led the UTEP study. The research, conducted last year, was funded by the Department of Homeland Security and published in March. A broader crisis was “not on anyone’s radar,” Manjarrez added, even though “it was pretty clear this number of kids was going to be the new baseline.”

[...]

But top officials at the White House and the State Department had been warned repeatedly of the potential for a further explosion in the number of migrant children since the crisis began escalating two years ago, according to former federal officials and others familiar with internal discussions. The White House was directly involved in efforts in early 2012 to care for the children when it helped negotiate a temporary shelter at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

“There were warning signs, operational folks raising red flags to high levels in terms of this being a potential issue,” said one former senior federal law enforcement official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk candidly about internal operations.

The former official said the agencies primarily in charge of border security, Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, were “ringing alarm bells” within the administration.

Meanwhile, top officials focused much of their attention on political battles, such as Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign and the push to win congressional support for a broad immigration overhaul, that would have been made more difficult with the addition of a high-profile border crisis.

[...]

A week later, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) wrote a blistering letter to Obama, citing a 90 percent increase over the previous year in the number unaccompanied minors arriving from Central America. If the president failed “to take immediate action to return these minors to their countries of origin and prevent and discourage others from coming here, the federal government is perpetuating the problem,” Perry wrote. “Every day of delay risks more lives. Every child allowed to remain encourages hundreds more to attempt the journey.”

Inside the Obama administration, officials at the Department of Homeland Security were focusing most of their efforts on adults. Janet Napolitano, then secretary of homeland security, implored her counterparts in Mexico to increase border security to reduce the flow. U.S. immigration and border patrol officials created new processing centers, according to current officials and others familiar with the issue.

[...]

On Capitol Hill, lawmakers began hearing reports of the chaos from nongovernmental organizations and churches with operations in Central America. And they began efforts, in consultation with the administration, to increase federal funding to combat the crisis.

In 2011, HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement had a budget of $149 million to shelter and care for the foreign children. By 2013, it had grown to $376 million, and the Obama administration requested $495 million in its fiscal 2014 budget proposal.

Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.) said Democrats recognized the urgency but feared that if they raised too much of a public outcry, it would create political blowback for the Obama administration’s push to pass a comprehensive immigration overhaul.

[...]

Democrats worried that the escalating border crisis would help Republicans make a case that the administration’s policies had failed, Roybal-Allard said.

“That was always a concern of mine: How to address the issue in a way that did not detract from the need for comprehensive immigration reform,” she said.

A person involved in the planning said that inside the White House, national security staffers were concerned about the growing influx of children but that the influential team of domestic policy advisers was far more focused on the legislative push.

“Was the White House told there were huge flows of Central Americans coming? Of course they were told. A lot of times,’’ said the person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. “Was there a general lack of interest and a focus on the legislation? Yes, that’s where the focus was.’’

[...]

Obama, meanwhile, has ended his push for comprehensive immigration legislation in Congress, announcing that he intends to use his executive authority to amend the nation’s border laws.

But the crisis in Texas has complicated that political calculation, with Republicans contending that Obama’s weak enforcement helped create the crisis in the first place.

Gov. Palin: Honored to meet so many in Denver, including ‘Truth Transcends Color’ and Dennis Prager

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 20, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this afternoon:

Sarah Palin
—————————

Thank you, Colorado Christian University and Western Conservative Summit! You’re doing great work raising the next generation to effectively defend our republic. I loved being with you yesterday in Denver; it was an absolute honor to meet so many good people there including empowered patriots from American Conservatives of Color (www.ACofC.com).

“Truth Transcends Color” is their motto. Preach it! American Conservatives of Color, your core values statement is the answer to how that invisible wall of separation crashes down, making way for the united effort needed to rebuild this great nation! You are inspiring, bold, and RIGHT as you declare, “The days of saying ‘Someone needs to do something’ are over.” Together we are that someone!

Another highlight was shaking hands with the talented and wise Dennis Prager. I’d just watched his great work that day on the Elijah List where his impressive teaching video is posted.

(Updated) Dan Caplis introduces Sarah Palin as “the most influential woman in the history of the Republican Party”

Sarah Palin, Ben Carson headline Colorado Western Conservative Summit

By Anthony Cotton
The Denver Post

Posted:   07/09/2014 12:01:00 AM MDT8 Comments | Updated:   10 days ago

 

When John Andrews says the 2014 edition of the Western Conservative Summit has a chance to be the most influential in its five-year history, he points to the recent visits of former President Bill Clinton and his wife, possible presidential candidate Hillary, Denver’s bid for the 2016 Republican National Convention, and Senate and gubernatorial races that will attract national attention as signs that Colorado “is now in the political spotlight.”

And then there’s Sarah Palin.

Palin, who recently authored an opinion piece for the conservative Breitbart News Network calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama, will be one of the featured speakers at the conference, which will run July 18-20 in Denver.

Sarah Palin recently called for the impeachment of the presidentWhile some politicos make the argument that the influence of the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential candidate is waning, Andrews strongly disagrees.

“I’ve been in politics for 40 years — I worked as a speechwriter for (former president Richard) Nixon,” said Andrews, the founder of the Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University, which sponsors the summit. “I’ve seen stars rise and fall, but I’ve never seen anything like Palin. … Her endorsement is more coveted and more potent than anyone’s out there.”

Andrews says he’s been trying to get Palin to attend the summit since she made an appearance on the CCU campus in 2011.

Following are some reports from her epic speech today.  Be sure to watch the video above of Governor Palin’s speech, which might well be entitled, “The Forgotten Man”   and includes a lot of memorable one liners, such as  “This President’s ‘forgotten man’ is We the People.” and “We’re not gonna dethrone God and substitute Him with someone who wants to play God.”  After listing Obama’s many violations earlier in her speech, she also said, “You know, we had a revolution back in 1776 because we don’t do kings.”

Sarah Palin: Why Aren’t Illegals Sent to Mark Zuckerberg’s Neighborhood?

 

19 Jul 2014, 2:52 PM PDT

On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin wondered why President Barack Obama’s administration was not dumping illegal immigrant children in exclusive liberal communities in Manhattan, Silicon Valley, and the Washington, D.C. suburbs to live with pro-amnesty advocates.

Speaking at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado on Saturday, Palin said that politicians and their rich pro-amnesty friends in Silicon Valley or Wall Street can afford the best security for their borders that money can buy in their exclusive, gated communities. But Palin said when it comes to taking care of the nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant children who have come across the border since October of last year that they do not wanted deported, the same pro-amnesty advocates want them dumped in other communities.

“Notice they are not hauling illegals to the swanky neighborhoods of D.C. and Manhattan,” Palin said. “They are sending them to middle-class neighborhoods.” The high-tech industry has come under fire, as Palin noted, for pushing for no limits in the number of guest-worker visas that can be awarded to foreigners while laying off American workers. A week after Bill Gates co-wrote an op-ed calling for an unlimited number of guest-worker visas, Microsoft decided this week to slash 18,000 jobs. Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg has also spent millions of dollars through his FWD.us group to try to ram through comprehensive amnesty legislation.

In her Breitbart News op-ed calling for impeachment, Palin said that illegal immigration is the tipping point for her on impeachment because it impacts working Americans of all races and backgrounds.

Here is another article by Tony Lee:

Palin: Obama’s America an ‘Unfunded Charity’ for Illegals to Overrun

19 Jul 2014, 3:28 PM PDT

On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin accused President Barack Obama of knowingly allowing turning American into an “unfunded charity” for illegal immigrants to invade and overrun.

Referring to Obama as “the DREAMweaver,” Palin said when Congress declined to pass amnesty legislation, Obama “waved his magic wand” and enacted his own.

“And that created the current crisis as illegals are pouring in to collect what he illegally promised them,” Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado. “If Obama won’t obey the law and secure the borders, it’s not immigration, it’s invasion.”

Nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant children have flooded across the border since October of last year, and the number of illegal immigrant children unlawfully entering the country drastically spiked since Obama unilaterally enacted his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012 while the murder rate in Central American nations declined during the same period. There have been nearly 60,000 illegal immigrants who have entered the country since October of last year. Federal officials expect at least 150,000 more in the next fiscal year, and Palin said “America the unfunded charity” will be “overrun” with illegals.

Municipalities from Virginia to California have expressed serious concerns about how they can afford to pay to take care of illegal immigrant children that the Obama administration — often without advance notice — is dumping in their communities.

Palin also warned that gangsters and terrorists “will be mixed in there” with illegal immigrants coming across the border and it was “insane” to expect municipalities across the country that are already “stretched to the max” to take care of all of the illegal immigrant children. Breitbart Texas has been reporting that some of the world’s most dangerous gangs are using detention centers to recruit new members. And this week, Breitbart Texas reported that an illegal immigrant who came to the country with children and was released from a detention center in June with a “notice to appear” was arrested for murder.

To make matters worse, Palin said that the “forgotten man” who cannot catch a break will now see their tax dollars go to help take care of illegal immigrants while they are forced to compete with them for shrinking resources and jobs.

She asked Democrats whether they support the Obama Doctrine, which she said was: ‘Break the law, get a reward.” Palin said Obama’s “incentives are invitations” and the illegal immigration crisis will “get worse” if the Obama administration does not take border security more seriously.

PRESSTV reported on Governor Palin’s strike back at Eric Holder:

Sarah Palin: ‘I don’t need lectures from Eric Holder’

 Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (right) hit back at Attorney General Eric Holder

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin hit back at Attorney General Eric Holder on Saturday for criticizing her call to impeach President Obama over the border crisis.

“I don’t need lectures from Eric Holder, a guy – get this – so incompetent that he denied voter fraud existed even after someone claimed that they were Eric Holder and they got his ballot and they voted in D.C.,” Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver.

Palin was referring to an April 2012 video by a conservative activist that showed a man entering a Washington, D.C., polling center and requesting Holder’s ballot, offering up the official’s mailing address. The video did not actually show a ballot being cast in Holder’s name.

Earlier this month the former Republican vice presidential candidate called for the president’s impeachment for his handling of illegal immigration. “This unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say ‘no mas,’” Palin wrote on the Breitbart website.

Holder said in an interview aired Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that Palin “wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate” and “an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

“Oh dear, Eric. Not many cabinet members in U.S. history have been held in contempt of Congress, but he still wants to weigh in,” Palin said.

Palin pushed back on Holder’s claim that race might still be a major factor in America, calling it a “disgusting, false charge.”

“Try to get it,” Palin said. “Illegal immigration hurts all Americans – all races and backgrounds.”

“The gangbangers and the terrorists – they will be mixed in there – and we’re offering to take care of them,” Palin said. “I think it’s insane.”

She reiterated Saturday that the president be impeached. “There’s no other recourse,” she said.

(AP Photo/The Knoxville News Sentinel, Saul Young) DENVER — Former Alaska Gov.

“There’s only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors, and it’s impeachment,” said Ms. Palin. “It’s the I word. You don’t need some fancy law degree hanging on your wall there to know laws are not being enforced today. Illegal immigrants all over the world also know that.”

The former Republican vice-presidential candidate spoke to a crowd here at the Western Conservative Summit, sponsored by the Centennial Institute.

She told the audience of about 2,000 here at the Denver Hyatt Regency that lawmakers regularly decry the president’s refusal to enforce laws, but don’t follow up with action.

“Okay, politicians, what are you going to do about it?” said Ms. Palin. “Let’s call their bluff. I’m calling their bluff because we need a little less talk and a lot more action.”

Sarah Palin helps fire up the right at Western Conservative Summit

Former Alaska Governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin speaks at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado on Saturday, July

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin ripped President Obama Saturday, saying in order to “save the Republic” Americans must “have the guts to talk about impeachment.”

Palin bashed Obama on a variety of topics, including immigration and veterans services during a speech before the 2014 Western Conservative Summit in downtown Denver.

“These days you hear all of these politicians, they denounce Barack Obama, saying he’s a lawless imperial and ignores court orders and changes laws by fiat and refuses to enforce laws he just doesn’t like,” she said.

“That’s true. But the question is, “Hey politicians, what are you going to do about it?'” Palin said, as the crowd in the Hyatt Regency ballroom roared.

The former governor of Alaska, Palin rose to prominence in 2008 when Sen. John McCain of Arizona tapped her as his running mate on the GOP ticket. When talk-radio host Dan Caplis introduced Palin, he billed her as the most influential woman in the history of the Republican Party.

Line after line about Obama fired up the crowd.

“If Obama won’t do his job and enforce the borders then it’s not immigration, it’s invasion,” she said.

“We’re not going to dethrone God and substitute Him with someone who wants to play God,” she also said.

Palin, who spoke for about 35 minutes, was one of several marque Republicans who addressed the five-year-old Western Conservative Summit, which is hosted by Colorado Christian University and the Centennial Institute.

Others on the agenda for Saturday included Texas Sen. Ted Cruz; Jim DeMint, president of the Heritage Foundation and Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota. Among those addressing attendees on Sunday, the final day of the summit, is former Rep. Alan West of Florida.

The results of a straw poll for the 2016 presidential race also will be released on Sunday.

UPDATE:

Here are two more articles by Tony Lee posted at Breitbart.com.  In the first one, posted this morning, Lee summarizes the “Forgotten Man” theme of Governor Palin’s speech.  I suspect that this speech will be referred to historically as her “Forgotten Man”  speech.

Sarah Palin to GOP: Fight for the ‘Forgotten Man’ to ‘Win Big in 2016′

20 Jul 2014, 6:50 AM PDT

Ronald Reagan won two presidential elections by fighting for the “Forgotten Man,” and Sarah Palin said Republicans will only win presidential elections in the future if the party sticks up for the “little guy” and the “Forgotten Man” of all races and backgrounds.

Building upon the themes she has always fought for and distilled in a landmark speech in Indianola, Iowa in 2011 in which she denounced the bipartisan permanent political class and their brand of crony capitalism that extracts wealth from American workers, Palin told attendees at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado on Saturday to think about what Sam Griffith posted on her Facebook page. She said he wrote: “I grew up poor. My mother was a die-hard FDR Democrat. When I turned eighteen the first president I voted for was Ronald Reagan. My mother was beside herself. When she asked me why I had voted for him, I told her I didn’t plan on staying poor.”

“This is our message. This is what we stand for,” Palin exclaimed. “You wanna win big in these midterms, you wanna win big in 2016? Listen to Sam. Stand for a guy who still wants to believe in the American dream.”

Palin said the “Forgotten Man” is not invited to parties in swanky zip codes and Washington D.C. where crony deals are cut. She said the Forgotten Man “is the hard-working middle class that just can’t seem to get a break” and who is worried about their mortgage and the cost of college. She said the Forgotten Man “is the college grad who voted for Hope and Change, but now can’t find a job. Losing hope. Got no change.”

She said the Forgotten Man is the soldier we sent off to war who has come “home forever scarred” and denied his “promised compensation” while he is shuffled around the Veterans Administration while VA bureaucrats “give themselves raises.”

“Today, the Forgotten Man is the patriot,” Palin said. “She starts a Tea Party group to champion the blessings of liberty and prosperity… but finds herself the target of the IRS.” And Palin said when the “crystal-clear evidence stares” Obama in the face about the IRS’s corruption, Obama slaps the Forgotten Man in the face and says, “no corruption at all.” Not even a smidgen.

“Sadly, the forgotten man has used to being lied to,” Palin said. She singled out Benghazi, where Palin said “our ambassador there begged for security and was ignored and murdered when the consulate was attacked by savage Muslim terrorists.” She said Obama promptly lied to Americans and blamed a YouTube video for “this highly organized, premeditated attack.”

Speaking at the same Colorado university in which she gave a Reaganesque foreign policy speech three years that found the sweet spot between retreating into isolationism and recklessly and naively trying to be the world’s policeman, Palin said the “Forgotten Man is used to Obama’s lawlessness” —  and she cited “amnesty” as the chief example.

Palin noted that Obama has turned America into an “unfunded charity” that illegal immigrants can invade and overrun after unilaterally passing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Palin also wondered why illegal immigrant children were being dumped in working-class and middle-class communities in not in swanky zip codes in Washington, D.C., Silicon Valley, and Manhattan, places where pro-amnesty advocates are pressuring Obama to not deport the nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant children who have unlawfully entered the country since October of last year.

Palin also blasted wealthy amnesty supporters who would rather replace American workers with cheaper foreign workers, denying the “Forgotten Man” an opportunity to “earn a decent living and the dignity that comes with that.”

Palin said a decent living allows the Forgotten Man to get ahead and perhaps lay a foundation for their children to “finish what you started.” She said that exceptionalism is lost when people don’t play by the rules and those at the top promote lawlessness regarding illegal immigration and “collude” to “drive down wages of Americans by replacing them.”

She said that the Forgotten Man believes “in this exception nation” and will fight anyone who wants to fundamentally transform America by undermining its rule of law and “making it just another chunk of land on a map no different from the countries our ancestors left to stake a claim here — legally.”

“But who’s looking out for the American worker? Who has got their backs? Who fights for them? Who will stand up for the forgotten man?” Palin asked. “One man did. He was an FDR Democrat. And he left his party because he said his party left him.”

Palin said that man was Ronald Reagan, who said, “You can’t be for big government, big taxes, and big bureaucracy, and still be for the little guy.”

Palin said Reagan “stood for us,” and that’s why American workers stood with him.

Saying that Republicans represent the calloused hands of people who built the country and the little guy who can’t afford seats at swanky fundraisers but also does not begrudge success and loathes crony capitalism, Palin reminded attendees that the Forgotten Man wants freedom and the culture of life and the military to be respected. Palin also said “defending our borders and defending our constitution and rule of law” are important to the forgotten man.

Palin has been one of the few politicians in either party who has never forgotten the “Forgotten Man,” and that is why both establishments have often derided and reviled her. But Politicians on both sides of the aisle are tapping into the anti-crony capitalism spirit that continues to percolate. Even the mainstream media is finally recognizing it. Palin was ahead of the curve, though. Before there was Dave Brat and Elizabeth Warren, Palin delivered a landmark speech in Indianola, Iowa in 2011 where she injected crony capitalism on both sides of the aisle in “Boomtown” into the political bloodstream to make it an issue. Before she blasted the bipartisan “permanent political class” in her Indianola speech, Palin took them on in Alaska. She won and enacted significant reforms, accomplishing nearly every one of her campaign promises.

Palin also said impeachment should be used as the ultimate check against a lawless executive, and she again indicated that Obama’s lawlessness on illegal immigration was the tipping point for her to call for impeachment because no issue adversely impacts the “Forgotten Man” of all backgrounds and races more. That is why Palin announced in an op-ed on Breitbart.com that Obama’s “many impeachable offenses” can no longer be ignored.

“It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment,” Palin wrote.

The second one, posted yesterday, focuses on Governor Palin’s urgent call for Obama’s impeachment.

Sarah Palin: Impeachment Threat Making Obama ‘Nervous’

19 Jul 2014

On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said the impeachment threat is making a lawless President Barack Obama a bit “nervous.”

A week after Palin called for Obama to be impeached over his lawlessness on immigration on the pages of Breitbart News, two-thirds of Republicans believed that impeachment is justified while a majority of independents felt that Obama has overstepped his Constitutional authority. Speaking at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado, Palin said “considering articles of impeachment is the check” against a lawless executive branch.

Citing Obama’s “dereliction of duty” in enforcing the country’s immigration laws and securing the border, Palin said, “if that’s not impeachable, then nothing is. And if he’s not impeachable, no one is.”

“It takes guts to hold them accountable,” she said. “It takes political will.”

Palin told Republicans to “don’t be afraid to raise” the impeachment issue because Obama is making “himself a ruler and not a president.” Palin said America had a revolution because “we don’t do kings.”

She observed that “these days you hear a lot of politicians denouncing Barack Obama,” saying he’s a lawless and imperial president who ignores court orders, changes laws by executive fiat, and refuses to enforce laws that he just doesn’t like. Palin asked the politicians who are complaining, “what are ya gonna do about it?

“Let’s call their bluff,” Palin said. “I’m calling their bluff because we need a little less talk and a lot more action.”

Declaring that Obama’s lawlessness is “rocking us to our core,” Palin said that “no serious person can deny that team Obama has not violated and abused the public trust and the Constitution.” Palin listed Benghazi, Fast and Furious, NSA spying scandals, Obamacare lies, the IRS’s targeting of conservatives, the administration’s violation of religious rights, and the Department of Justice’s wiretapping of reporters.

“The list of abuses goes on and on,” she said.

Palin also mentioned that “high crimes and misdemeanors” does not refer to today’s ordinary criminal charges. She reiterated that the Framers referred to “a dereliction of duty,” and “the first duty of the president is to enforce our laws and preserve and protect and defend our Constitution.” She said Alexander Hamilton said impeachable offenses refer to “the abuse or violation of some public trust.” Hamilton called them “political offenses” because they relate “chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself,” Palin said, noting that impeachment is a check against a lawless executive.

Palin announced in an op-ed on Breitbart.com that Obama’s “many impeachable offenses” can no longer be ignored.

“It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment,” Palin wrote.

Sarah PalinAttacking President Obama and dealing up ways to shape American values are red meat for the table of the Western Conservative Summit in Denver this weekend. The convergence brings more than 2,500 conservative “delegates,” many with tea party ties, together to hear from stars of the political right such as Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Ted Cruz and Allen West.

In its fifth year in Denver, the Western Conservative Summit continues to gain stature as a national event for Republicans to address the party’s base and raise ideological spirits.

The event, to run Friday through Sunday, features some 20 speakers and 30 workshops on such conservative values and strategies as “How Culture Drives Politics,” led by Ralph Reed and a Sunday morning panel discussing “Which Way Millennials, Left or Right?”

The summit at the Hyatt Regency and Colorado Convention Center culminates Sunday with a straw poll to gauge attendees’ early choices for a 2016 presidential nominee.

[...]

Palin is expected to speak Saturday afternoon. Her address is titled “Seize the Day.”

The former Alaska governor and vice-presidential pick in 2008 called for Obama’s impeachment in a column on a conservative website earlier this month because of his immigration policy.

“President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here,” according to the column on Breitbart.com.

[...]

Friday afternoon, tickets were still available online, but summit spokesman Z. James Czupor said the event is expected to sell out at 3,000 delegates. Admissions ranging from $55 for people younger than 30 up to $650 for full access to all events and speakers for those older.

Video of events will be available on the Centennial Institute’s Livestream page.

Updated: Sarah Palin to speak at Wagner Noel

Lecture series also bringing “America’s Most Wanted” John Walsh to Basin

Updated 2 days ago

Vocal conservative commentator and former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, will share her take on women’s leadership issues during a visit to  the Permian Basin next year.

The John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute’s Distinguished Lecture Series is bringing Palin to the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center on Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. The lecture, “Groundbreakers, mavericks and trailblazers: How women are showing 21st century leadership,” is free and open to the public.

“What better example than Sarah Palin to come to us to talk about typical challenges and barriers, and how to break them down and show the example of demonstrated leadership in action?” said institute Executive Director Bob Brescia. “I thought Sarah Palin was a good exemplar of that.”

[...]

Brescia said choosing Palin wasn’t about how much she’s appeared in the news, but about her leadership abilities, which she has demonstrated consistently, both while in office and since then as she has been able to “mobilize commitment over a shared goal.”

“In order to mobilize commitment in today’s world, young people, who tend to gravitate toward the channels of social media, you have to be present where they’re present,” he said. “Sarah is present. You don’t have to go far to look for Sarah Palin.”

Keeping the Permian Basin “totally engaged in the national conversation” is a goal for Brescia when choosing guest speakers.

“We try very hard to maintain relevance to leadership issues on a national and regional basis, and to bring personalities that resonate in our area and for which there would be considerable interest,” he said.

Brescia said he’s confident the event will be a very popular one, and “interesting speakers,” such as Palin, tend to receive a good reception.

[...]For more information, contact the institute at 552-2850 or jbs@utpb.edu.

Details will be posted on the Institute’s website as the event gets closer.

Just back from a beautiful weekend in Alaska’s Bristol Bay – nothing like some clean fresh air to reinvigorate us for the fight ahead this fall. Today, we’re announcing support for two solid constitutional conservatives from the great state of Georgia. Having many friends in Georgia, we know like us your summers are filled with fishing, family, and fresh air without much room for politics. However, with so much at risk in this year’s elections, please take time to check out these great conservatives and encourage your family, friends, camping buddies, neighbors, etc. to get out and vote for them next Tuesday, July 22nd.

DR. BOB JOHNSON FOR U.S. CONGRESS (GA-1)

Dr. Bob Johnson is one doctor we need in the House! Americans are tired of career politicians who make empty promises during campaigns, only to get to Washington to advance their own careers. Dr. Bob is in this campaign with a servant’s heart. As a 26-year Army veteran, a Christian medical missionary, and a surgeon, his life’s work has centered on serving country and neighbors. We need more like him in office. Dr. Bob is a conservative who will work to repeal Obamacare and balance the budget, and he has signed the pledge to self-limit the time he’ll spend in Washington. His campaign is propelled by the good Georgia grassroots. Let’s send Dr. Bob to the House on July 22nd!

BARRY LOUDERMILK FOR U.S. CONGRESS (GA-11)

Barry Loudermilk has a proven record of conservatism in the Georgia General Assembly, one that I hope he can bring to the weak-kneed in the halls of Congress. Barry is an Air Force veteran, small business owner, father, grandfather, and husband who met his beautiful wife in the great state of Alaska many summers ago. Barry will take his strong work ethic, life experiences, and conservative principles to Washington where he will join the fight to restore our great nation and use the Constitution as his guide. Please join me in supporting Barry Loudermilk for U.S. Congress on July 22nd.

Gov. Palin posts photos of family trip to Bristol Bay to slay salmon

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 15, 2014

Governor Palin posted this Note on her Facebook page this afternoon:

Slaying Salmon

July 15, 2014 at 1:28pm
—————–

Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here’s Piper helping slay salmon to market!

 

 

A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!

 

It’s always wonderful reconnecting with our roots in Bristol Bay. We are very blessed to have 5 generations of family learning, living,loving together here in Alaska. Todd’s grandmother, a beautiful Yupik Eskimo elder who still speaks Yupik, masters the skillful artistry of the Native culture, crafting intricately woven grass baskets and works using wood, fur,skins, plants, porcupine needles and anything else traditionally gathered. Our matriarch cooks traditional subsistence fare that she’s helped harvest for nearly all her 94 years up North.

 

 

The stories this humble pioneer has lived illustrate what a genuine conservationist is: respecting God-given resources for man’s responsible use; honoring the Creator of it all and protecting the environment so our hunting, fishing, mining for minerals, drilling for energy, viewing our wildlife… all can be enjoyed and responsibly exploited for every generation to come. Native elders are so often the ones to learn “environmentalism” from; they’ve lived off the land and carved their lives out of the wilderness and on the waters. They honor the purpose of natural resources. Any day of the week I’d trust Lena’s commitment to protecting opportunities to develop the earth’s energy and food supplies over any New York City “Occupying” yuppie who radically screeches his misguided doctrine from within his concrete jungle. (It’s because a Bristol Bay wild salmon stew and blueberry pie harvested ourselves nourishes the commonsense gene so much more than the foo-foo chi-chi$8.00 frothy latte he sips while skipping in and out of stale air conditioned boxes… in my opinion!)

 

Lena’s a true American role model, we’re so thankful to have our kind, wise, gorgeous “G.G.” in our lives. May Lena’s passionate love of God, family and country continue to influence Alaskans. She makes the world a better place.

 

 

I snapped the moose photo last night (followed by a fun video I shot; maybe I’ll post it later). It was taken at 11pm, but still light in the Land of the Midnight Sun, of course. Trig got out of bed to watch out the living room for Todd to land his floatplane in the front yard (i.e. the lake!) returning from Bristol Bay. And then three NEW FRIENDSs auntered by to meet Trig! The ungulates proceeded to chomp down dinner in my garden. Moose = my convenient excuse as to why my garden is no Pepperidge Farm!

Lloyd Marcus on Gov. Palin’s call for Obama’s impeachment: “Way to go sister!”

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 14, 2014

From Lloyd Marcus’s article posted at The Patriot Post:

Black Conservative Joins Palin’s Impeachment Rallying Cry

By Lloyd Marcus · Jul. 11, 2014

I have said it before and I will say it again, I love Sarah Palin. Governor Palin has come out strongly calling for the impeachment of President Obama. I say, “Way to go sister!”

During an interview, Sarah expressed the frustrations of millions of patriotic Americans, myself included. Enough with being intimidated and impotent to act because Obama is black. Enough with the smartest pundits’ in the room explanations why it would be politically unwise to challenge Obama’s unprecedented lawlessness. Enough with being politically castrated by fear of the mainstream media.

Palin is calling for Obama’s impeachment simply because it is the right thing to do. Palin cites 25 impeachable offenses by Obama thus far.

While politicians express their shock and awe regarding Obama’s daily acts of lawlessness, a tsunami of illegals are flooding our country with Obama gleefully having ordered the opening of the flood gates. Some say allowing the invasion of illegals to continue will change America forever.

Remarkably, the Administration will not allow the GOP to visit the federal facilities where illegals are being held to assess the situation. This is astoundingly arrogant and totalitarian; the action of a supreme dictator rather than a U.S. President.

We can not allow a lawless imperial president to run rampant wrecking havoc on our great nation for two more years, hoping that his behavior will harm Democrats in elections. Reversing Obama’s vote winning entitlements and laws may be extremely challenging, if not impossible.

And another thing: This Administration’s secrecy, stonewall coverups and iron fist tactics against any individual or institution that challenges or disagrees is outrageous and totally unacceptable. It should no longer be tolerated. It is vitally important that Americans immediately wake up and smell the tyranny and act accordingly.

Here is a recent prime example of this Administration brazenly attempting to bully even the U.S. Supreme Court. Henchman Harry Reid has announced that he intends to punish the “five white guys” on the Supreme Court for ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby.

By the way, one of those so-called five white guys is black, Justice Clarence Thomas. Note the Democrats’ trademark tactic of insidiously playing the race card in Reid’s “five white guys” statement. This man is an awful evil human being; characteristic of the many hit men and women of the Obama Administration; Lois Lerner and Eric Holder to name a few. Remember, leadership emanates from the top down.

[...]

A movement to impeach Obama has been underway for awhile. Governor Palin as the face of it is the perfect leader to give it legs.

As an individual proud American who happens to be black, I wholeheartedly support Governor Palin’s movement to impeach our imperial president, Barack Hussein Obama.

Chairman, Conservative Campaign Committee
