(Updated) Bristol Palin: My Parents’ Divorce

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 18, 2014

Posted at Bristol’s Blog today:

 My Parents’ Divorce

IMG_4326

Aw… so sad.  

I just read an article on Yahoo’s front page about my family.

According to some random reporter, my parents are getting divorced…

I find something new about my family every day!

(Of course, the article and most of what the media reports about our family is complete garbage.)

Visit our Palin Derangement Syndrome page for more examples of PDS.

UPDATE:

Governor Palin responded to Bristol’s blog post today on Facebook:

I love my Bristol! My straight-shooter is one of the strongest young women you’ll ever meet. I have to say this as a proud mama: right up there with their work ethic and heart for those less fortunate, my kids’ defense of family makes my heart soar! As you can imagine, they and my extended family have experienced so many things (liberal media-driven) that may have crushed others without a strong foundation of faith, and I’m thankful for our friends’ prayer shield that surrounds them, allowing faith to remain their anchor. Thank you, prayer warriors! I love you!

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

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!

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.

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

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!

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.
