Palin: “If You Control Arms You Control The People”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on April 28, 2014

Gov. Sarah Palin spoke to the attendees of the NRA Convention in Indianapolis this past weekend and she had some strong words in defense of our 2nd amendment as well as strong words for terrorists:   “If I were in charge they’d know that water boarding is how we baptize terrorists.”

 


h/t iizthatiiz

Predictably so, the “baptize” comment has caused heads to explode but what do you find more offending, a towel and some water used to get vital information or the beheading of an American citizen?   Gov. Palin had this to say in response to those critical remarks.  From Facebook:

Actions to stop terrorists who’d utterly annihilate America and delight in massacring our innocent children? Darn right I’d do whatever it takes to foil their murderous jihadist plots – including waterboarding. Whatever one thinks of my one-liner at the NRA rally about treating evil terrorists the way they deserve to be treated to prevent the death of innocent people, it’s utterly absurd for MSNBC to suggest that I could put our beloved troops in harm’s way, but we’ve come to expect the absurd from that failing network. If you want to talk about what really harms our troops, let’s talk about politicians who gut our military’s budgets, or a president whose skewed budgetary priorities slash military benefits, or an administration that puts our vets on endless waiting lists for care that comes too late to help those who’ve paid the price for our freedom, or those who break bread with those who think it makes no difference how our military heroes died in Benghazi or anywhere else trying to protect America. Those actions are a heck of a lot more harmful than declaring an appropriate message our enemies should receive. If some overly sensitive wusses took offense, remember the First Amendment doesn’t give you a right not to be offended. Perhaps hypocritical folks who only want Freedom of Speech to apply to those who agree with their liberal agenda might want to consider that the evil terrorists who were the brunt of my one-liner would be the first to strip away ALL our rights if given the chance. That’s why we do whatever we can to prevent them from killing innocent people. And for that, we should NEVER apologize. Good Lord, critics… buck up or stay in the truck. And if you love freedom, thank our troops! Thank our vets! And thank those who have the brains to support them and the guts to defend what they have earned!

Palin: Get a clue, brass. Quickly.

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on January 6, 2014

FB14_0106

Earlier today Gov. Palin shared the above photo and this message on her Facebook page.  A Blue Star mom and an avid supporter of our military, Gov. Palin once again calls out this administration for their treatment of our nation’s finest.

 

Look, U.S. Military top brass, some of us are known for supporting our troops 110%, even encouraging our own kids in their voluntary, sacrificial enlistments. We send them off with blessings as you send them off to war. You keep pulling stunts like this, and how long do you think our military enthusiasm keeps up? Get a clue, brass. Quickly. You keep up these new double standards and this recent discrimination against Christians, and the greatest military power on earth will soon be “fundamentally transformed” into a weakened, involuntary and unrecognizable mere bureaucratic entity. Obviously you need a new commander-in-chief who sincerely believes in freedom and respects the fact we need to keep our finest keeping us free, but until that time, exert some brass cojones and re-embrace American military ethos.

Palin: No New Taxes: “We’ll Be Watching!”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on December 13, 2013

Palin_amflag_speech

Gov. Palin has penned a piece over at Breitbart  in which she artfully  makes the case as to why we are “Taxed Enough Already” and issues a warning to D.C. politicians on their votes for this compromised budget bill– “We’ll be watching.”

From Breitbart:

No one can argue with the fact that Paul Ryan’s compromise budget bill raises taxes and increases spending. Show me one Republican who got elected on that platform. Spare America the Orwellian word games. If the government is taking money out of your pocket to fund its growing Big Brother operations, it’s a tax. Whether money is taken from you via your phone bill, your airline ticket, or your income, it’s a tax. If politicians can’t be honest about this, it’s time to go home.

The TEA Party’s very acronym stands for “Taxed Enough Already.” We sent these politicians to Congress in an historic landslide election in 2010 with a mandate to stop the runaway spending train bankrupting our nation, not to wave to it from the station or – heaven forbid – increase its speed. And yet, here we are still pretending that there are no real world consequences to running up near trillion dollar deficits year after year with no end in sight.

So, where does this leave us? We can sit back and accept the increased spending “Compromised Plan” with increases in taxes and spending, or we can charge ahead to at least preserve the very modest Sequester cuts American workers already fought for. If we go with the first option, we simply kick the can down the road yet again and wait for the inevitable real world consequences of bankruptcy (see Detroit for an example of what’s in store). Or we can go with the second option and probably get clobbered by the media (so what’s new?!).

The Political Establishment will no doubt tell us that a budget battle will distract us from the fight against Obamacare. But that excuse is just the latest variation in the Establishment’s old canard that they’re keeping their powder dry for the next big battle which never seems to materialize because they’re always too busy waving the white flag and following the path of least resistance until election day.

Enough is enough!

Here’s the deal, folks. The media will clobber us no matter what. We do not want more taxes. We want Congress to rein in spending and live within its means. (What’s so radical about that?!) Americans have gotten quite an education recently in wasteful government spending as we’ve all seen how the federal government can blow a billion dollars on a website that doesn’t work.

Do these members of Congress really think they can justify every tax dollar they spend and still demand more from hard working Americans by increasing our taxes?

2014 is just around the corner. If any member of Congress thinks raising taxes and increasing wasteful spending is a winning strategy to run on, then by all means they should vote for the Ryan budget. We’ll be watching.

Palin: “Amazing America” to Premier in April

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on December 10, 2013

Promo_widget

Sportsman Channel has announced that Sarah Palin will host their upcoming series “Amazing America” premiering on April 14th.  Looks like Mama Grizzly has been keeping the mother of all secrets since there has not been even one tiny leak on this exciting development.

Gov. Palin posted a Facebook update shortly after Sportsman Channel broke the news.

 

It’s soon time to get your “Red, Wild and Blue” on, America! I am ecstatic to get to share more of this great country with you, and I have exciting news to share!

We’ve been blessed with opportunities to travel all across America and experience inspiration! We’ve seen some wild places, met some wild people, and “amazing” is one word that comes to mind wherever the road takes us. It’s your turn to be inspired! So I am thrilled to work with Sportsman Channel on the new TV series called “Amazing America with Sarah Palin” because it lets me highlight the real stories that make America truly amazing.

Like us, there are millions of men, women and families who embrace the great outdoors and thrive on the natural beauty, resources and diverse activity it offers. A main reason I wanted to join Sportsman Channel is their passion and dedication to our active lifestyle. And they believe everyone has a little wild inside. This series lets us help everyone find their wild in “Red, Wild and Blue America!”

Click here for details on “Amazing America with Sarah Palin,” coming this April on the Sportsman Channel:
http://www.thesportsmanchannel.com/amazingamerica/

 

Prior to Palin’s announcement I received this email from Sportsman Channel:

Good Morning,
I just wanted to pass along the news that Sarah Palin is hosting a new outdoors TV show on our network beginning next April. Please see attached press release for more information. It hit the AP wire this morning – so you can also see some stories in places like ABC News, CNN etc: http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/sarah-palin-host-outdoors-show-21148357

Let me know if I can get you any further info on this new show. We are very excited to have her on board! Thanks so much.

 

The Sportsman Channel website has the following to say about “Amazing America”:

Amazing America with Sarah Palin explores and experiences the coolest and most original people, places, businesses, and gadgets that appeal to Red, Wild and Blue America. Former Governor Sarah Palin takes viewers into the life of those living the American dream.

Whether it is celebrities living the sportsman dream or equally enthusiastic everymen, Mrs. Palin will take us nationwide to find the people and places that share and reflect her passion for what makes our country amazing.

 

Petersen’s Hunting offers this “first look” commentary on “Amazing America” but here’s a sneak peek of what to expect.  (Note: you must scroll down past the ad to see the article.)

“The show really explores and experiences an anthology of stories about the most original people, places and businesses that really appeal to Red, Wild & Blue America, that great American spirit about the great outdoors,” said Marc Fein, EVP of Programming and Production at Sportsman Channel. “… The show is really about shining a light on these folks that reflect [Palin’s] passion for what makes the outdoors and our country amazing.”

The segments aren’t just about hunting, shooting and fishing, however.

“It will be a variety of different types of stories. It could be about amazing craftsmen in action in our states, about American heroes and first responders, how they train when called into action,” Fein said. “We’ll have some celebrities, visiting some celebrities at ranches and farms, and just some really good stories of people living the American dream in our states—who went from nothing, created a product with great ingenuity and built their dream, which is building a dream cabin.”  More

I’m really looking forward to this show.  I predict that it’s going to be a great success for Sportsman Channel and that “Amazing America” hosted by Sarah Palin will bring a broader audience to Sportsman Channel.

Palin: Day 8 of “Good Tidings and Great Joy” Book Tour 11/20/13

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on November 24, 2013

First stop on November 20th for the “Good Tidings and Great Joy” book tour was Sam’s Club of Tyler, TX.  Gov. Palin posted a Facebook message of thanks to those that attended:

Thank you, thank you, Tyler, Texas! Great to be back to see many whom I’d met at the Oil Palace after my pro-American Energy speech. Really great to meet new friends today, too! Your gracious Southern welcome warms us right up. Special thanks to everyone who joined us today and provided fun, laughter, and new energy in the book line. And what a super staff at Sam’s Club! Now on to that other energy-producing sister state America loves – Oklahoma! (Alaskans of a certain age will remember an infamous bumper sticker about Texans and Okies which was popular when finishing construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline in the 70’s… but I promise it was never on my truck! “Happiness is a Texan flying south with an Okie under each arm.” Just in jest and we love you guys! Er, y’all.)

The following was published by KLTV9:

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Hundreds of East Texans lined up for hours Wednesday morning for their shot at meeting former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Palin was in Tyler Wednesday, a pit stop that is part of her nationwide tour promoting her new book.

Many people in line drove or even flew in for a chance to meet the former Alaskan governor.

One of those men was Michael Jenkins, who was first in line for the book-signing frenzy. Jenkins arrived just after 11 p.m. on Tuesday.

“This is my third time to see her,” Jenkins said. “The first time we made it over 20 hours before and we were not even close to the front of the line and I just wanted to make sure I got a spot in line.”

That meant braving low overnight temperatures in the 40s.

“I stayed in my car,” Jenkins said. “I had a blanket wrapped up right here, and then the rest of the time I was in my car. It was too cold.”

Marilyn Mcneely hit the road from Jefferson at 3 a.m. Wednesday morning.

“I expected a long line this morning,” Mcneely said. “I almost jumped for joy when I saw I was number six.”

Number six in a line filled with hundreds, all waiting for a few brief seconds with the former governor. But it was all worth it for people like Shirley Greene, who is actually from Idaho.

“I had a trip planned to visit a friend in the Dallas area,” Green said. “So I rented a car and got up early this morning and drove down.”

Greene thinks of Palin as somewhat of a family friend.  Video & more

From Texas it was on to Edmond, OK where an evening signing was scheduled at the Mardel Christian & Education Supply.  Gov. Palin posted the following via Facebook:

O! K! Last night in Oklahoma, Kathy Young (see photo) shared her “The Best Peanut Butter Carb Bar EVER” recipe with me – sounded so good we almost ate the Christmas card it was written on! Thanks, Kathy, and congratulations on celebrating your Golden Wedding anniversary during the Christmas holiday at the same church in Edmond where you were married. As promised, I’ll make the Carb Bars when I get home. Friends, enjoy the tradition of sharing recipes as I did in “Good Tidings and Great Joy.” Or begin the tradition at our book events!

Thank you, Oklahoma, for supporting the “Good Tidings and Great Joy” message last night. So many inspiring people are committed to protect the heart of Christmas – and your efforts mean a world of difference in today’s culture. Lots of conscientious parents and grandparents brought youngsters on a school night to share early Christmas cheer, testifying powerfully to sincere support. It was a joy to see so many happy faces sharing your Okie hospitality. Kudos to the thoughtful staff at Mardel; thanks for putting up with our healthy “energetic” chaos that inevitably accompanies big events! Now on to Arkansas and Kansas for ramped up empowering of good Americans so we can stand united for joyous tradition, faith, family and freedom.

UPDATE: Some of you have asked for that Peanut Butter Carb Bar Recipe that Kathy Young gave me last night. Here’s Kathy’s recipe:

The Best Carb Bar Recipe EVER by Kathy Young of Edmond, OK

1 c. Honey
1 c. Brown Sugar
1 c. Peanut Butter with nuts
4 c. Cereal – any kind (I love Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds)
Additional ingredients:
Raisins, Chocolate Chips

1) Microwave Honey, Brown Sugar, and Peanut Butter on high 3 minutes in large bowl stirring every minute

2) Add Cereal to warm mixture

3) May add Raisins and Chocolate Chips to warm mixture (Chocolate Chips will melt)

4) Spread mixture into 13×9 inch pan sprayed with cooking spray

5) Cool, slice (approx. 30 squares) and enjoy!

Gov. Palin also shared a photo album consisting of twelve wonderful photos from the Edmond event.  Once again, I’ll point out that it’s quite obvious that Gov. Palin really enjoys meeting her supporters.

KFOR TV published the following on Palin’s book signing event:

EDMOND, Okla. – Former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin made an appearance in the Sooner State.She’s hosted a signing event in Edmond for her new holiday book.

Her new novel is titled “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.”

The signing was at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Mardel near 33rd St. and Boulevard.

The first 750 customers were guaranteed a spot in line but only if they had a wristband. Video here.

The schedule for first leg of the book tour can be found here and I’m looking forward to the announcement  of the second leg stops.

Palin: If You Love Freedom, Thank a Vet Everyday

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on November 10, 2013

Sarah Palin extends a special thank you to our nation’s vets via her Facebook page:

If you love freedom, thank a vet everyday — but especially on Monday, Veteran’s Day. Take time to let vets know how much you appreciate their service. If you see a good patriot who has served or is currently serving, be bold and introduce yourself and thank them for the freedoms you cherish. Over the next few weeks we’ll be out on the road all across America discussing my new book “Good Tidings And Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas” because in this book our vets are acknowledged throughout for their bravery, service and sacrifices paid to defend our freedoms that some take for granted. We’re excited to visit with vets, active duty military, and their amazing families this Friday at Fort Campbell and Fort Benning. Thank you, veterans, for protecting the heart of America and for inspiring us everyday!

- Sarah Palin

Palin: Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Boxes

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 31, 2013

Sarah Palin urges her supporters to watch a video on “Operation Christmas Child” and to support Samaritan’s Purse in their endeavor to  bring a little box of joy to children around the world.  Part of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Samaritan’s Purse has ministry projects throughout the world.  November 18th-25th is “National Collection Week” for the boxes.

 

SamarPurseXmas

From Facebook:

Please see the link below to watch the great promo Uncle Si Robertson from Duck Dynasty did for Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child. Rev. Franklin Graham and his team do such wonderful work all around the globe. It was such an honor to join him on a Christmas mission in Haiti a few years ago (which this photo is from). And it will be thrilling to pay tribute to Rev. Billy Graham next week as he celebrates his 95th birthday! The entire Graham family has had such a positive influence on our nation and the world. God bless them!

Palin: Waste & Fraud in the Federal Disability Insurance Program

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 8, 2013

Shared by Sarah Palin on her Facebook page:

In case you missed it, “60 Minutes” did an excellent segment on the waste and fraud in the Federal Disability Insurance Program. Kudos to Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and his staff for leading the investigation into this. And thank you, CBS, for covering it!

http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50156574n

From CBS News:

Steve Kroft reports on the alarming state of the federal disability program, which has exploded in size in the last six years and could become the first federal benefits program to run out of money.
