Sarah Palin, Tea Party Take Aim in Searchlight

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on March 27, 2010

By Shane Vander Hart at Caffeinated Thoughts 

The Tea Party Express stopped in Searchlight, NV in Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s back yard (almost literally).

Fox News reported on this event:

Fewer taxes, less government and no "Obamacare."

That’s the message thousands of conservative Tea Party activists were hoping to send to Washington as they streamed into Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s hometown in Nevada Saturday morning.

"Harry Reid is symbolic of the problems in Washington in the sense that he’s been the leader in the Senate of all the things we’ve been against — expanding the government, increasing the deficit, and raising taxes," Sal Russo, chief strategist of the Tea Party Express, told FoxNews.com.

"He campaigned as a moderate but has moved so far to the left," Russo said of Reid. "Voters are tolerate of different views, but what they don’t like is when someone campaigns one way and then governs by another."

The Tea Party Express, one of the most visible factions of the national Tea Party Movement, officially kicked off its cross-country, 42-city bus tour with Saturday’s rally.

Senator Reid is majorly vulnerable as he trails both GOP hopefuls in the latest poll.  We know that elections have consequences, as we have well learned from the outcome in 2008.  Senate votes have consequences as well.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was a keynote speaker for the event today, you can watch her speech in full here.  She discussed numerous topics and she specifically addressed the media’s meme this week that she and other conservative leaders are inciting violence and expressing concern about tea party violence.  She said:

We’re not inciting violence.  Don’t get sucked into the lamestream media’s lies about conservative America’s standing up for freedom as inciting violence.  Violence isn’t the answer.  It’s a bunch of bunk what the media is trying to feed you.  Don’t let them divert attention from the debate.  Media, you guys ginning up an issue like that making it sound like it is a crowd like this of patriotic Americans who are inciting violence.  It’s not true, it’s a bunch of bunk, and we ask for some fair and balanced reporting coming from you please.

Apparently though it was Harry Reid’s supporters who were inciting violence.  Interesting.  I doubt that’ll make it in The New York TimesPolitico reported 20,000 in attendance at this event four miles north of this small town in the Nevada desert.  Conservatives 4 Palin noted that President Obama drew “hundreds” (or up to 3000) to his kickoff event in liberal Iowa City for his first stop of his temporary victory tour.

Who do you think is more energized?

Governor Palin Handles Heckler (Video Included)

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 27, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

This morning Governor Palin dealt handily with a heckler as she was speaking at a McCain Rally in Mesa, AZ. The man had to be removed from the event. This is interesting in light of the fact that dishonest people are accusing Gov. Palin and tea partiers of being boisterous, inappropriate, and violent.

The governor told the man to listen and perhaps he’d learn something, but he refused to shut up long enough to learn a thing. She then reminded the crowd that Senator McCain, as a tortured POW, paid the price for that heckler to have the right to protest.

Too bad he couldn’t have found a more respectful, constructive way to express whatever disagreement he had. His behavior sort of puts things in perspective, though, doesn’t it?

Sarah Palin Speaks at Two Events in Midland, Texas

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on March 27, 2010

Friday afternoon, Governor Palin spoke to about 1300 people at the Commemorative Air Force Museum in Midland, Texas. In the evening, she also spoke to an audience of about 400 at a fundraising dinner at the Petroleum Club. Both events were sponsored by the Liberty and Freedom Foundation of New York City.

David Johnson at OA Online reported:

The former vice presidential candidate and governor of Alaska spoke to a crowd of about 1,300 people in folding chairs for the better part of an hour Thursday afternoon at the Commemorative Air Force in an event that was primarily political but between the “Amens” and cowbells from the crowd, often resembled church or a football game.

Speaking for the Liberty and Freedom Foundation, Palin said that she felt very welcome in the Permian Basin.

“There’s such an appreciation here for your freedom,” Palin said.

In addition to energy production, which she called one of her favorite subjects, Palin was focused on getting people out to reverse what she called the leftist direction of the county under President Barack Obama.

But she said that media reports mischaracterized the conservative message as inciting violence.

“ ‘Take up your arms’ means voting,” Palin said.

Although some of the people in the crowd had never heard of the LF Foundation, everyone knew about Sarah Palin and had nice things to say.

“I love her,” said Shelly Rollins of Midland, who was hoping to get an autographed copy of Palin’s book Going Rogue. “She reminds me of me.”

Rollins even took her daughter Kim Biedeger, 16, out of school to come to the event.

“I think with the passing of the health care bill, democracy is on the way out,” Biedeger said.

Palin, who said that she was glad to see all of the young kids in the audience, was very critical of the debt she said liberals had created.

“That’s selfish and it’s generational theft,” Palin said.

Crosby Cobb, a 10-year-old from Greenwood, was also missing school. But for someone who dressed as Sarah Palin for Halloween, this wasn’t a surprise.

“She’s just someone who stands up for women’s rights and shows that just because you’re a woman doesn’t mean you can’t do something,” Cobb said.

Even though some didn’t support her move to resign as governor, everyone seemed to support her in whatever she did next, whether running for office herself or supporting other candidates.

“The opportunity to see someone like this in our area was compelling for my wife and I,” Jerry Berkebile, president of Colt Hill Resources, said.

Stephan C. Brown, CAF president, said that it’s exciting any time a celebrity comes to the museum.

“We like anybody that can draw a crowd to see what we’re doing,” Brown said. He said, however, that the museum has no political affiliations and the LF Foundation was in charge of the event.

The Liberty and Freedom Foundation executive director Victor Cocchia spoke before Sarah Palin and laid out the foundation’s goals to support 10 truly conservative candidates and help elect a majority in Congress in 2010.

[…]

Palin also spoke at the Petroleum Club from 6:15 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday. Tables of eight were $4,000. Tickets for couples were $1,250. The funds raised go to support the Liberty and Freedom Foundation.

A photogallery of the event can be found here.

Permian Basin 6 reported:

Former Vice Presidential candidate and Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin was at the CAF Thursday afternoon. Palin is in town to raise money for the Liberty and Freedom Foundation. This foundation gives money to 10 conservative congressional candidates in hopes they will get elected. If that happens, the GOP will take back some seats in congress and with more than a 1,000 people coming out to hear her speak. The foundation got some West Texas support today.

Unfortunately, it was pencil press only, meaning our cameras weren’t allowed in. But, we did manage to take some photographs.

When the governor took the stage, a sea of people were on their feet welcoming her. Palin spoke about a variety of different issues going on in our country including healthcare reform, which she called “Obamacare”.

Another issue she addressed, which was fitting to West Texas, was of course, energy.

After Palin spoke, she then answered questions from elementary students. One student asked, what was her inspiration behind her book Going Rogue? She answered, she wanted to set the record straight and let people know the truth about her family, her administration and her record.

Beau Berman at CBS-7 News reported:

Palin began the day at the CAF Air Hangar, cracking jokes for the audience, and chastising the healthcare reform bill.

“We just like to hear from Sarah that she’s going to help get the Republicans back in charge of the house and Senate”, said speech attendee, Dale Wilson.

For dinner, Palin chose the Midland Petroleum Club, where she was the keynote speaker for a fundraiser put on by the Liberty and Freedom Foundation of New York City. Mayor, Wes Perry, joined hundreds of others in attendance.

“She’s very charismatic. You can understand why she’s the national figure that she is when you hear her speak”, said attendee, Steve Burleson.

With video cameras barred from both events, the crowd’s reaction isn’t recorded, but attendees say the crowd loved Palin, who reportedly stressed the importance of domestic energy.

“A lot about energy and the economy and the needs of the country to get on the right track”, said spectator, Lonnie Simms, right after the 2nd speech.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a visit from, Sarah Palin, without her famous sense of humor.

“She said that when she ran for Vice President they finished second out of 2 in the race so everybody thought that was pretty funny”, said Burleson.

According the event’s organizers, the proceeds from this evening’s fundraiser go toward grass roots organizing and policy development efforts.

 Bob Campbell at My West Texas News reported:

Texas has prospered by “sticking to its conservative principles.” That’s the message former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin preached Thursday during her first of two stops in Midland.

Comparing Texas and her home state of Alaska as “big, wide open states with hard working people,” Palin said the conservative governmental philosophy practiced in Texas could be applied nationally to revive the economy.

“We need the courage to do what’s morally right and cut taxes so small businesses can hire more people,” Palin told 1,100 applauding, cheering spectators at the George H.W. and Barbara Bush Commemorative Center near the airport.

“That’s how our economy can come roaring back to life.”

[…]

“What makes America exceptional is not her politicians, it’s her people,” the former Alaska governor said. “I see it in our brave men and women in uniform who are willing to sacrifice it all for our country.

“Freedom is a God given right and worth fighting for. Our government is supposed to be working for us. We’re not supposed to be working for the government.”

Palin stringently criticized the health care reform legislation just passed by Congress, saying, “Obamacare is not sustainable.

“It’s impossible to fund. They say we would learn to like their programs if only we were smart enough to understand them. But we are smart enough to understand. We just don’t like them.”

In an apparent reference to reports this week of threats and vandalism aimed at Democratic leaders and their property, Palin said, “We are not inciting violence.

“When they’re trying to keep you from speaking out (and I get this from my dad), don’t retreat, just reload.”

Palin’s husband Todd listened in the back of the capacious room, smiling and occasionally talking with a Midland policeman. The spectators were seated by volunteers in pink “Palin T-shirts,” and there was a question-and-answer session after Palin’s 22-minute speech with five schoolchildren asking questions.

She said she would discuss energy production later at the Petroleum Club, where some 400 people had paid $1,250 per ticket and up. Both events were fundraisers for the Liberty & Freedom Foundation, a conservative group based out of New York City.

“God created these rich resources in Texas,” Palin said, adding that the U.S. is asking foreign countries to sell it more oil because it has neglected its domestic production.
