July 6, 2009 Synopsis of Governor Palin’s Accomplishments

Posted by Ron Devito on July 6, 2009

Governor Palin announced that she will be resigning her gubernatorial job on July 26, 2009. This is an accomplishment for her, because the job limits her ability to campaign effectively as a national figure. Governor Palin realized that she must free herself from the bonds of that position to more effectively answer her call to service.

Following the resignation, Governor Palin issued a letter to her constituents and started pursuing leftist bloggers who have been writing libelous and defamatory material against her.

One rumor involving a federal agency was debunked by both the agency in question and Governor Palin’s lawyer.

FEMA approved additional aid for Alaska’s Interior region flood victims. Governor Palin’s meticulous and disciplined approach to the disaster ensured that resources were properly allocated to the affected areas.

Governor Palin signed legislation safeguarding student loans.

Governor Palin was profiled in Runner’s World, where she discussed extensively how she runs marathons.

The Governor expressed her disapproval of the Waxman-Markey Bill otherwise known as “Cap and Trade.”

While in Kosovo, Governor Palin gave and received honors. Honors given: she served food to her troops and met with volunteer English teachers and their students. Honors Received: Governor Palin was present with an Alaska State Flag that had flown in regular service over Camp Bondsteel. The flag was encased in a plaque honoring her as Commander-in-Chief of Alaska’s National Guard.

Sarah Palin’s Family Tree

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 6, 2009

On GretaWire today, Greta van Susteren asked for reactions to an article about the low profile Sarah Palin has kept since she announced her resignation as governor and the mystery surrounding her future plans. One of the Palin detractors replied by saying that you can tell a Republican by the lack of branches in their family tree. So I responded to that person by posting an excerpt from the following article by Rosemary E. Bachelor:

Sarah Palin’s Ancestry: Solid New England: Vice Presidential Candidate Has Multiple Mayflower Lineages

Ms. Bachelor prefaces her article with this statement:

Sarah Palin is upper echelon when it comes to descent from the nation’s colonial era founding families in New England.

According to Ms. Bachelor, who obviously did some thorough genealogy research on the subject, Sarah Palin’s family tree includes several ancestors who came over on the Mayflower, one of whom she shares with Senator John McCain:

Palin’s Mayflower ancestors include William Brewster, John Howland, Stephen Hopkins, Joan (Hurst) Rogers, John and Elizabeth Tilley, and Richard Warren. She also descends from Thomas Prence, an early governor of Plymouth Colony, and her pedigree is laden with numerous pre-1650 immigrants from England.

President Bush, Barack Obama and Sarah Palin all descend from Samuel and Sarah (Soule) Hinckley. Their son, Thomas Hinckley (1618-1706), held several governmental posts in the Plymouth Colony and served as its last governor from 1681 to 1692. Palin is also a 12th cousin of John McCain and descends from Simon Newcomb of Edgarton, MA and Lebanon, CT, as do both Bush presidents.

Two of Governor Palin’s ancestors were kings, and the emperor Charlemagne was possibly one of her ancestors as well:

Palin, Obama and McCain all claim William 1, King of Scots, as an ancestor. Her descent in this Carolingian line is via ancestor Edmond Hawes (1612-1693) of Yarmouth, MA, who held many local offices. She also descends from Henry III of England by way of ancestor Edward Raynsford, who died in 1680 in Boston. He is alleged to be a Plantagenet descendant of Charlemagne.

Governor Palin shares one of her Plymouth Colony ancestors with four former United States presidents, a famous poet, one infamous figure, and several other well-known figures, including – believe it or not – Mitt Romney:

Sarah Palin shares ancestor John Lathrop with presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Franklin D. Roosevelt and both Bush presidents. Lathrop descendants have earned fame in many ways. In addition to Revolutionary War traitor Benedict Arnold, the list includes Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon religion, poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Dr. Benjamin Spock, financier John Pierpoint Morgan and the original fuller brush man, Alfred Fuller.

Tumbling out of the list of politicians who descend from Lathrop are Adlai Stevenson, John Foster Dulles, Thomas Dewey nd presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

This article is well worth the read and may surprise some of Governor Palin’s detractors who equate her down-to-earthness and affability to being not up to the job of President. (I won’t repeat some of the terms I have seen them use to describe her.) It seems that ever since the election, it has been open season on this remarkable woman because of her adherence to conservative ideals and values.

What a pedigree for someone so unpretentious and gracious but strong and tough as nails when it comes to getting the job done and doing what is right for her state and her country! Governor Palin, we salute you for a job well done and for a decision made in what you deemed to be the best interest of the state that you have governed with a servant’s heart. Whatever path you take next will bring outstanding results. Naturally, we hope it will lead you to the White House eventually. Like Ronald Reagan, you are truly a gift from God to our country at such a time as this. In the meantime, God bless you and your family, Governor Palin, and God bless America!

Hat Tip:

On his The Book of Sarah  blog, Josh Painter has two additional articles about Sarah Palin’s ancestry. In fact, I followed a link from one of them to this fascinating article.
