Governor Palin speaks at Mighty Oaks Warrior event in Texas and United We Stand event in Arizona this week

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 6, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page earlier today:

Sarah Palin
———————–

What an honor it was tonight to speak at a fundraiser in Houston for the unique and wonderful organization called Mighty Oaks. Under Chad Robichaux’s leadership, this strong, experienced military team helps our vets overcome PTSD. The work they do for our wounded warriors is so crucial. It’s the sincere heartfelt work that only private non-profits can really tackle. As a faith-based group, Mighty Oaks uses a Christ-centered approach to helping our vets heal, and their many success stories are incredibly inspiring. The number of vets struggling with PTSD is truly staggering. It’s our duty as a grateful nation to do everything we can to help our warriors who sacrificed so much to ensure our liberty. Mighty Oaks helps our men and woman regain the freedom in their own lives that they fought to defend. We can’t wait for politicians to tackle this. Every American who loves their freedom can step up and give our vets the love and support they deserve.

 

If you’d like to contribute or know of a vet who needs help, please visit the Mighty Oaks website at: https://mightyoaksprograms.org/

 

God bless these wonderful patriots and God bless our brave vets!

Palin honors vets at gala for PTSD recovery

Palin honors vets at gala for PTSD recovery programPosted: Friday, September 5, 2014 11:20 pm

THE WOODLANDS — Former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin shared her views on the Second Amendment, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria crisis and military issues, as well as cracked some jokes and told personal anecdotes at the Mighty Oaks 4th Annual Gala at WoodsEdge Community Church Friday night.

 

The gala, which drew about 400 guests, benefited the Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs, a faith-based, non-profit organization focused on helping veterans deal with post-traumatic stress disorder and adjust to life after combat.

 

The programs include six-day Post Traumatic Stress Reintegration Programs for men and women and a three-day marriage program that take place at Sky Rose Ranch in San Miguel, Calif.

 

President and Founder of Mighty Oaks Programs Chad Robichaux, who is a former resident of The Woodlands and a Marine Corps veteran, spoke about how much the programs have grown since they started in 2011.

 

“Four hundred and fifty warriors have come through our program, we’ve still had zero suicides from our warriors,” Robichaux said.

 

Although, he added, that with veterans commiting suicide at a rate of 23 a day and a post-combat divorce rate of 80 percent, “the fight’s not over.”

 

The Mighty Oaks Programs are the only faith-based recovery programs that the U.S. military is ordering veterans to, according to Robichaux.

 

He emphasized the importance of the program’s faith-centered approach to helping those suffering from PTSD heal.

 

“Our strength is in that we are a faith-based program,” Robichaux said. “This was a calling that God put on my heart to help guys who went through what I went through.”

 

Robichaux also announced that he, along with Serving California, Mighty Oaks’ mother organization, have been working with Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, the U.S. Marine who has been held in prison in Mexico for entering the country in possession of firearms.

 

Phil Dunn, president of Serving California, is an attorney and has taken over the case for the Marine’s defense.

 

“He never intended to bring firearms into Mexico,” Dunn said. “He just asked if he could turn around.”

 

“Now he has a legal chance,” Robichaux said.

 

Dunn called on President Barack Obama to become more personally involved in Tahmooressi’s case and the attendees of the gala joined hands in prayer for his release.

 

When introducing Palin, Robichaux said that he did not ask her to come speak as a political figure.

 

“She’s coming here as an American who loves her warriors and as a mom of a warrior,” he said.

 

When she took the stage, Palin started off by saying how glad she was to be in Texas and remembering the time she spent in the state during her summers in high school.

 

“I’m gonna spare you guys all my Texas jokes, especially because I’m in church,” Palin said.

 

She talked about her son, Track, an army veteran who served in Iraq, and his experience with the Mighty Oaks Programs.

 

“He was enamored,” Palin said.

 

“At this time in such a tumultuous world, we need our returning warriors to be strong, we need them to be healthy,” she said. “They need to win these battles too, the battles that are at home.”

Great to have the Duck Commander crew in Alaska! The Robertson family joined us this past weekend to honor wounded warriors flown up for a healing retreat at Franklin Graham’s camp in the wilderness; and we chowed down together on scrumptious moose BBQ in our back yard. It was a spectacular day with down-home friends and family! The patriarch Duck Commander and I had a great chat – unPHILtered by the media! (You know I love that!) Check out the video here and get Phil’s new book “UnPHILtered” that was just released. If you respect freedom-loving, patriotic, hard working ethos, then you’ll love this encouraging book! Enjoy.

(Updated) Palins and Duck Commander crew join Franklin Graham in welcoming veterans and their spouses to Alaska retreat

Vets Enjoy Autumn Rolling in on Little Bear Feet

Such a beautiful day in Port Alsworth, Alaska, as our family joined Rev. Franklin Graham & the Duck Commander crew to again welcome veterans and their spouses at an Operation Heal Our Patriot’s retreat. This tremendous program for wounded warriors is run by Samaritan’s Purse and works to help heal our returning heroes who have the same emotional and spiritual scars the rest of us have, but theirs are compounded by extreme circumstances in war zones, and they return with scars all to often overlooked. Thank you to all the dedicated OHOP volunteers committed to our returning heroes to heal marriages affected by these scars. Our prayers are with the couples we welcomed yesterday on a chilly end-of-summer evening that reminds us our Alaskan winter rolls in quickly and spectacularly. It was 27 degrees there this morning, and bear viewing is great as the nearby animals fatten themselves up before hunkering down for the cold winter months. This Bristol Bay region is a most beautiful spot in the Last Frontier; it’s the region where Todd was born and raised. We’re blessed to have this chunk of God’s country in our backyard. Glad the Duck Commander crew traveled North for these views, too!

America, please join us in supporting and praying for all our vets and their families. If you love your freedom, thank a vet!

- Sarah Palin

PS – On FOX tonight, 7 PM ET, watch a Greta Van Susteren special highlighting OHOP’s mission in Alaska. And please visit http://www.samaritanspurse.org/education-2/about-operation-heal-our-patriots/

Happy Labor Day weekend! We’re heading out to Port Alsworth in Bristol Bay in a few hours. This is Todd’s old stomping grounds where today he owns the Rainbow Bay Lodge.

It’s a blessing to again join Rev. Franklin Graham and his family and their great Samaritan’s Purse team that runs the wonderful ministry that’s geared to helping injured vets and their spouses repair relationships damaged by the war, the injuries, and the distance military life involves. My family and I have had the honor of working with Samaritan’s Purse in the past; you’ve heard us talk about travels on missions with Rev. Graham for relief work in Haiti, in various parts of Alaska, storm-ravaged parts of the U.S. and elsewhere. In fact, Greta Van Susteren taped a special for FOX News about this particular mission Rev. Graham does for our vets and their spouses in Alaska. It airs tomorrow on FOX at 7pm ET. Please check it out!

This has been an awesome weekend all around for us. Yesterday was the MOST gorgeous day so we had a great cookout with the awesome Duck Dynasty family here in our yard at home in Wasilla. (Stay tuned to hear more about that wonderful visit!)

Gov. Palin calls out The Daily Caller about her Tonight Show visit

Guess the boys at The Daily Caller spent a bit too much time at the frat house and not enough time in their college library. (Or maybe it’s in one of their Jr. High tree forts where their leader gathers the boys to “report” their “conservative” issues.) Their claims about what I supposedly “demanded” of the Tonight Show are, in their frat boy terms, B.S. This is not the first time we’ve had to correct their sloppy “journalism.” Paraphrasing and dramatizing sure doesn’t fit into any fair and balanced image, especially from a little fella loving his title of FOX News Channel host. Maybe those bow ties are a bit too tight, bros.

In contrast to your erroneous reporting (Hey! Come to think of it, this time it’s merely erroneous; it’s not your usual misogynist slant!), we loved visiting the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I had a blast on the show. Leno’s team was top notch, professional, and funny; and some even brought their families to work that day so they could meet mine. That was neat! Thanks for the memories, Jay!

I’m looking forward to reading Dave Berg’s great new book “Behind the Curtain: An Insider’s View of Jay Leno’s Tonight Show.” Dave reached out by email to my team to share the following: “I consider Gov. Palin’s booking on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show one of the best gets I ever got. I had worked long and hard to book her, both during and after her vice-presidential campaign. She turned out to be a charming guest, who also did a killer standup, and her ratings won the night by a large margin. You can’t ask for more from a guest.”

Thank you for the kind comments, Dave. Back at ya!

Please check out Dave’s new book. It looks like a really fun read. You can get a copy here: http://is.gd/HLzN4o or here: http://is.gd/z7Yknh

Gov. Palin: What Obama didn’t do on my summer vacation and what Harry Reid is about to do

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 29, 2014

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/sarah-palin-tough.jpg

Sarah Palin
————————

No Drama Obama’s Summer Casual Agenda for America (or What He Didn’t Do On My Summer Vacation)

There is absolutely nothing important going on in the world right now.

There are no security threats, no worldwide turmoil affecting America’s interests, no civil war in Syria, South Sudan, or Libya. No war on our ally, Israel. No Ebola epidemic devastating West Africa and spreading. No race riots tearing apart a whole community in Missouri. No Russian aggression in Ukraine. No deranged North Korean dictator testing more missiles. No Chinese jets getting up close and personal with our American military. No brave American journalist sickeningly beheaded by Muslim terrorist savages rampaging through the Middle East seizing oil fields and committing genocide on Christians and Kurds. No illegal immigration crisis as thousands of unaccompanied minors illegally walk right across our unsecured borders. No scandals in Obama’s White House. No worried servicemen and women coping with ill-advised U.S. Military chainsaw cuts. And no increase in our nation’s debt. Nope. It’s been one lazy summer with nothing to do, not a thing to worry about in No Drama Obama land.

This explains why the President spent the summer on vacay in Martha’s Vineyard and is now gearing up for Vacation 2.0 this weekend with the One Percent in the Hamptons, again, and in Newport, again.

And this utter state of calm also explains why Harry Reid’s first order of business when the Senate returns from vacation is to gut our First Amendment rights.

Reid and his minions in the democrat party think that what America really needs right now is a constitutional amendment to limit the amount of funds we can spend on elections. Don’t know when the conversion happened, but suddenly LIBERALS are worried about the undo influence of money in getting candidates elected! Hmm, but they must not be too worried about it since President Obama leaves work behind and undone to jet from one fundraiser after another after another with billionaire democrat donors. (You know, the donors he unhesitatingly rewards with YOUR money in the form of bailouts and sweetheart loans for their “green energy” scam companies, etc., etc. You know the drill.)

Sheep in the democrat party bah, “It’s a Constitutional Amendment to Restore Democracy to the American People,” which is in keeping with their Orwellian practice of naming legislation the exact opposite of what it will actually do (“Affordable Care Act” anyone?).

“There’s nothing going on in the world in these lazy days of summer, so let’s light a campfire and tear up our First Amendment for kindling!” said no American ever. But that doesn’t matter to Harry and his party pals. They just need another political gimmick to distract from the utter failure of everything they’ve touched in the last six years.

Why bother with addressing the failure of Obamacare? Why deal with the crisis at our border as lawbreakers threaten the livelihoods of working class Americans? Why deal with the Islamic organizations steamrolling through the Middle East, hell-bent on meeting us on our shores? Why deal with declining middle class incomes and stagnant job growth and unsustainable big brother government largesse? Why bother trying to fix anything Americans are actually concerned about? Nah, Harry says, “Let’s attack the Constitution instead, again!”

That’s the democrat agenda for America, folks. On November 4th, we get to tell them our agenda. We get to tell them where they can place their “Fundamental Transformation of America,” while we get back to the “Fundamental RESTORATION” that will save our country. Please make sure Harry gets the message loud and clear. If we don’t change his Senate, it’s going to be a long hot season leading to one heck of a barren winter in America.

Trig’s buddy, Jill Hadassah, joins the Palin family

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 25, 2014

Sarah Palin
—————–

Happy household this weekend as we welcomed a new addition to our family! Our new four-legged love, Jill Hadassah, comes to us with great training under her collar by our friend in Iowa Becky Beach and her Puppy Jake Foundation, along with Canine Craze in Des Moines. The Puppy Jake charity trains dogs for adoption by our service men and women, including those recovering from PTSD, as well as families with special needs. Jill Hadassah has been trained to be Trig’s buddy, and we’re over the moon to finally have her home! Thrilled, too, because all the rescue dogs and cats our kids have adopted over the years will hopefully learn something from our first dog trained to do anything! She’s brilliant and beautiful, and we feel very blessed to have her.

Thank you so much, Becky and Puppy Jake Foundation, for working with this tail-wagging bundle of love. We’ll treasure her, as she joins the rest of the current furry members of our family: Lucy, Lola, and Wilson.

Please visit the Puppy Jake Foundation to learn more about the great work they do, and join us in supporting them if you feel led to do so!

Hat tip to actor Patrick Stewart for reminding everyone with his video that the donation is the most important part of the #icebucketchallenge, not the frivolous water-tossing theatrics that those of us who are more thoughtfully serious choose to forgo.

Gov. Palin: Washington Redskins’ team name is a great source of pride if you take out the word ‘Washington’

Rush Limbaugh’s always on top of the pile. He’s ahead of issues, including this one where he gives a heads up that Coach Ditka may actually get fired for exercising America’s First Amendment:

http://www.newsmax.com/US/Washington-Redskins-Mike-Ditka-Football/2014/08/21/id/590081/

Nothing should surprise us lately; but when the Politically Correct Police bust Ditka, they hope the silent majority will cower under leftist control. My goodness, Ditka merely spoke his mind. This accomplished and esteemed coach knows there are big issues to be addressed in America today; there’s no intent to offend by referring to a team by the name they’ve proudly worn since day one and chose with pride in our native ancestry and obviously had absolutely no intent to insult; and the liberal media’s made-up controversies divide our country. The government’s intent to force any owner of anything, in this case an NFL entity, to change a name is the antithesis of the American way of working through differences. Ditka said he actually likes the Washington Redskins, and he’s a man full of commonsense and admired patriotism. Still, I must disagree with Coach Ditka after reading his full statement:

“What’s all the stink over the Redskin name?” Ditka said. “It’s so much [expletive], it’s incredible. We’re going to let the liberals of the world run this world. It was said out of reverence, out of pride to the American Indian. Even though it was called a Redskin, what are you going to call them, a Proudskin? This is so stupid it’s appalling, and I hope that owner keeps fighting for it and never changes it, because the Redskins are part of an American football history, and it should never be anything but the Washington Redskins. That’s the way it is. It’s been the name of the team since the beginning of football. It has nothing to do with something that happened lately, or something that somebody dreamed up. This was the name, period. Leave it alone. These people are silly — asinine, actually, in my opinion.”

He thinks the name should always be Washington Redskins, as a source of pride? Take the word “Washington” out and I’ll agree the team name is a great source of pride.

Rush Limbaugh: Ditka May Be Fired Over Redskins Remarks

Image: Rush Limbaugh: Ditka May Be Fired Over Redskins Remarks

Thursday, 21 Aug 2014 11:35 AM

By Drew MacKenzie

Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh has expressed concerns that legendary football coach Mike Ditka will be fired by ESPN following his attack on the “liberals” who want to change the Washington Redskins name.During an interview, the former Chicago Bears coach and ESPN analyst had said he was appalled that politically correct “idiots” believe the NFL team’s name is a racial slur offensive to Native Americans.

On his radio show Wednesday, Limbaugh defended Ditka while criticizing CBS Sports broadcaster Phil Simms and NBC Sports analyst Tony Dungy for planning to refrain from using the word Redskins during games.”Yesterday, I happened to pass on to you the information that Phil Simms (who used to be conservative) and Tony Dungy have decided they are not going to use the word Redskins during NFL telecasts this fall. They’re just gonna call them ‘Washington’ during the whole game.

“Well, the Hall of Fame has a very outspoken member by the name of Mike Ditka who still works at ESPN but probably not for long. During a discussion about this ‘need’ to change the name of the Redskins, Mike Ditka unloaded.”

Limbaugh then played the audio of Ditka’s interview with RedskinsHistorian.com, during which he urged Redskins owner Dan Snyder to keep the name.

“This is so stupid it’s appalling, and I hope that owner keeps fighting for it and never changes it, because the Redskins are part of an American football history, and it should never be anything but the Washington Redskins,” Ditka said.

On his show, Limbaugh blasted the liberal media for manufacturing the controversy with the result that “supposedly millions of people are all of a sudden offended.”

“Ditka is speaking up for traditionalists who know that when the Redskins were named the Redskins, there was no intent whatsoever to insult,” Limbaugh said. “There’s a myth here that this nation is fed up with the name Washington Redskins. “We’re dealing with a politically correct minority intent on having their way, and Ditka is just speaking up for people who say, ‘There’s no real issue here. Nobody’s really upset. There’s more important stuff going on. Leave it alone!’ Hope the owner hangs in there.”

Limbaugh added, “Anyway, [Ditka] works at ESPN, but I don’t know … I mean once this gets out, he’s at least gotta be suspended.”

Mr. Dawkins, I’d let you meet my son if you promised to open your mind, your eyes, and your heart to a unique kind of absolute beauty. But, in my request for you to be tolerant, I’d have to warn Trig he must be tolerant, too, because he may superficially look at you as kind of awkward. I’ll make sure he’s polite, though!

Atheist Richard Dawkins: ‘Abort’ Down’s Syndrome Baby, ‘Immoral To Bring It Into The World’

———————-

20 Aug 2014

 

Atheist author Richard Dawkins provoked a firestorm Wednesday on Twitter by claiming an unborn baby with Down’s syndrome should be aborted and that it would be “immoral to bring it into the world.”

The debate with some of his one million followers began when Dawkins, 73, linked to an article at the liberal New Republic titled, “The Catholic Church prefers medieval barbarism to modern abortion,” by Jerry A. Coyne, according to The Daily Mail.

“Ireland is a civilised country except in this one area,” Dawkins said. “You’d think the Roman Church would have lost all influence.”

Irish Catholic Aidan McCourt tweeted in return to Dawkins, “994 human beings with Down’s syndrome deliberately killed before birth in England and Wales in 2012. Is that civilised?”

“Yes, it is very civilised,” Dawkins responded. “These are foetuses, diagnosed before they have human feelings.”

Dawkins later added, “Learn to think in non-essentialist ways. The question is not ‘is it human’?’ but ‘can it suffer?’”

When InYourFaceNewYorker tweeted, “I honestly don’t know what I would do if I were pregnant with a kid with Down’s syndrome. Real ethical dilemma,” Dawkins returned, “Abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice.”

Many from the pro-life community and parents and families with children with Down’s syndrome were enraged by Dawkins’ comments.

In a press statement, Live Action President Lila Rose slammed Dawkins’ tweets: “It’s sick and twisted for anyone to advocate for the killing of children with disabilities.”

“Dawkins’ ignorant comments serve only to further stigmatize people with Down syndrome. While many people with Down syndrome, their families, and advocacy groups are fighting discrimination on a daily basis, Dawkins calls for their murder before they are even born,” Rose added. “Those with Down syndrome are human beings, with innate human dignity, and they, along with the whole human family, deserve our respect and protection.”

The Daily Mail notes Dawkins’ comments came one week after he said that having a faith helped foster terrorism, and that those who believe in God enable suicide bombers to murder thousands and make the “world safe” for extremists.
