Governor Palin Roots For Angela McGlowan & McGlowan Responds

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 1, 2010

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


Via Twitter, Governor Palin throws her support behind Angela McGlowan from the state of Mississippi. McGlowan is running for Congress, and if anyone can shake Washington up, she can. She is bold, bright, and a breath of fresh air. She is unapologetically pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, and pro-Second Amendment. She understands that government works for the people, not the other way around, and she wants Washington to be held accountable in every way, particularly in the area of spending, which is completely out of control.

Angela McGlowan represents true change. There’s no surprise, therefore, that Governor Palin would root her on in today’s primary election.

Read more of my thoughts about Angela McGlowan by clicking here and here.

Once again, take a look and listen at her speech at the Nashville Tea Party Convention in February. Is there not a fire in this woman’s belly?!

Governor Palin’s tweets:

Mississippi-please vote!My family&I are rooting for Angela McGlowan;race may go to a run-off election,but hopefully Angela wraps it up today

@seanhannity Rooting for you, Angela! Mississippi will be well served when you win! -Sarah Palin

Angela McGlowan responds via Twitter to the Governor:

Thanks for the support, Governor! RT @SarahPalinUSA Mississippi-please vote!My family&I are rooting for http://tl.gd/1k8qdp

Update: Via Doug at C4P, I learned that McGlowan also responded to the Governor on her Facebook page:

WOW!!! TEAM, I AM SO HONORED TO RECEIVE THE SUPPORT OF GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN!!!!

Palin on Flotilla: Don’t Take Mainstream Media Coverage at Face Value

Posted by Ron Devito on June 1, 2010

Gov Palin’s second Facebook Note of June 1, 2010 addressed purposeful distortion of the Israel Flotilla story by the mainstream media, specifically those outlets with leftist and/or anti-Israel leanings. Gov. Palin preceded her Note with a Tweet, urging her followers to read columns written by Charles Krauthammer, David Horowitz and others regarding the flotilla incident. US for Palin author Gary P. Jackson detailed how terrorist Bill Ayers and Obama’s top campaign bundler Jodie Evans are activists involved with the flotilla group.

The Real Story about the Flotilla

The second paragraph of Gov. Palin’s Note synopsizes the flotilla incident nicely.

As far too many in the media, and in various governments, rush to condemn Israel, we must put the recent events off Israel’s coast into the right perspective. This “relief” convoy was not about humanitarian aid, as the liberal mainstream media keeps reporting. The whole operation was designed to provoke Israel, not to provide supplies to Palestinians held hostage by Hamas terrorists in Gaza. Anyone who sees the video of Israeli commandos being attacked as they land on that ship knows the people aboard were vicious thugs, not “peace activists.” The media insults our intelligence with their outright mischaracterization of who these enemies are.

How Humanitarian Aid to Gaza Really Works

In paragraph three, Gov. Palin goes on to delineate precisely how humanitarian aid to Gaza works.

Israel delivers thousands of tons of humanitarian supplies every week to Gaza. These ships could have offloaded their cargoes at a nearby Israeli port if they really wanted to help the people of Gaza. Instead, they chose to incite confrontation and violence. Israel has a right to prevent arms shipments to Gaza that will be used to target innocent Israelis, so they were legitimately checking the cargo on the flotilla. Turkey has chosen to condemn Israel but we should be asking some serious questions about Turkey’s role in this whole affair. Why is a fellow member of NATO sponsoring such a dangerous publicity stunt? As one expert points out: “Three ships of that six-ship pro-terror convoy flew Turkish flags and were crowded with Turkish citizens. The Ankara government – led by Islamists these days – sponsored the ‘aid’ operation in a move to position itself as the new champion of the Palestinians. And Turkish decision-makers knew Israel would have to react – and were waiting to exploit the inevitable clash. The provocation was as cynical as it was carefully orchestrated.”

In her closing paragraph, Gov. Palin exhorts the Obama administration to stand by Israel.

We can only hope the Obama Administration does not join the anti-Israel chorus in the aftermath of this staged confrontation. Please, Mr. President, we need to let Israelis know we stand with them in their fight against terrorists and those who arm and support them. America and her ally, Israel, stand by waiting for your response.

– Sarah Palin

Conclusion

Anyone who continues to harbor doubts about Gov. Palin’s knowledge of foreign affairs can lay them to rest. Gov. Palin has clearly done her homework on this issue. Unfortunately, Obama’s handling of foreign affairs has been less than stellar, to put it kindly. I share in Gov. Palin’s hope that he’ll stand by Israel, but I honestly would be very surprised if he does, for Obama has demonstrated numerous times that his loyalty lies elsewhere.

Palin: Is it Any Wonder we Call Them “Lame”?

Posted by Ron Devito on June 1, 2010

Gov. Palin posted a Facebook Note on June 1, 2010 which described in detail how NBC twisted and distorted a printed statement she had supplied them. NBC sought an interview with Gov. Palin and her husband Todd regarding the fence they built to protect their border from stalker Joe McGinnis. NBC promised Gov. Palin to run her statement as a full-screen graphic, then broke their promise. Par for the course with an agenda-driven media.

Purposeful Distortion is Malicious

It’s one thing to distort or misrepresent words as they’re spoken, especially if the subject is a fast talker. Cub reporters covering their first few stories do it all the time, and even veterans do it. Distorting a printed statement that was supposed to run without modification is not an innocent mistake. It is a malicious act. NBC and MSNBC are well-known to have harbored malice toward Gov. Palin in the past, so this is just the latest in a series of hit pieces they have done on her and her family. Gov. Palin is actually someone outlets like NBC, MSNBC and the AP love to hate for as much as they hate her, they love the mega ratings dollars she brings.

Joe McGinnis and Saul Alinsky: Perfect Together

Gov. Palin also details in her Note, the Alinsky tactic used by McGinnis, in which he accuses her of “inciting hatred.” Not addressed in the Note, but equally as disturbing was the “flipping the script” allegation made by McGinnis in a People Magazine interview that “Gov. Palin is stalking him”.

Report the Facts! Leave out the Rest!

Posted by Denise Spencer on June 1, 2010

While the mainstream media is making Sarah Palin’s new constructed fence the focus of prime time, the world is watching the Israeli people in a fight for survival. On the big scheme of things, who really cares about Sarah’s fence? Even she said in a Facebook post, “Is It Any Wonder We call Them “Lame”?”, today that they need to get over it and REPORT the real news! She hit them hard with her most recent Facebook posting on Israel:

The media, as usual, seems to be reporting only one side of the Israeli Flotilla incident. Don’t trust the mainstream media to give you both sides of a story fairly… you must seek out fair reporting to ensure you have all the information.

As far too many in the media, and in various governments, rush to condemn Israel, we must put the recent events off Israel’s coast into the right perspective. This “relief” convoy was not about humanitarian aid, as the liberal mainstream media keeps reporting. The whole operation was designed to provoke Israel, not to provide supplies to Palestinians held hostage by Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

Sarah Palin: Israeli Flotilla: Don’t Take Mainstream Media Coverage at Face Value

Sarah Palin: NBC broke their promise

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 1, 2010

Complete transcript of Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

It Any Wonder Why We Call Them “Lame”?

Today at 2:42pm

It may seem like a small thing, considering the state of the union and international issues of the day, but let me share some facts surrounding a most recent illustration of the untrustworthiness of America’s mainstream media.

Yesterday, Todd and I spent our Memorial Day evening exchanging emails with NBC in regards to the interview they conducted this morning with our new neighbor. As you’ll recall, the “journalist” Joe McGinniss moved all the way from Massachusetts to Wasilla – literally right next door to our home – after tracking us down in various forums this past year, so that he could be close to his “subject matter” while he writes his book about me.

When NBC asked to interview me for this story, I politely declined. NBC then asked for a statement from us and promised to run it as a full screen graphic during their interview with McGinniss. We were glad to provide a statement and appreciated NBC’s promise to run it. Todd and I both crafted the statement very carefully because our new neighbor has taken to accusing us of “inciting hatred” – a charge which we obviously take very seriously. We knew that he would make more accusations like this, and we felt very strongly that such comments should not go unanswered. So, we emailed NBC the following statements:

“McGinniss has followed us for some time now, from showing up on our doorstep last winter, bidding over $60,000 for a military charity auction dinner with me, writing the hit pieces, attending at least one Outside book event, etc. He has a right to pursue his subject, I suppose, and certainly has a right to live wherever he wants, but my family also has a right to expect privacy, and hopefully to enjoy peace this summer. Good fences do make for good neighbors. The fence is now up, and I hope that we can enjoy peace. The media sensationalizes the recent McGinniss’ tactic so the public will tune in to whatever the latest episode is, always with ratings in mind, and that’s unfortunate.” – Sarah Palin

“What’s also unfortunate is journalists’ tactics like this, because it keeps good people from wanting to get involved in public service.” – Todd Palin

NBC responded to thank us for our statements and again promised that they would “make sure” that the Today Show airs both of our statements “as a fullscreen graphic during the segment tomorrow.” We were grateful because we knew that our statements would counter any accusation of “inciting hatred.” And boy was it necessary because in his interview on NBC this morning McGinniss doubled down on his accusation to actually compare us to the Nazis!

But there was just one problem: NBC broke their promise and didn’t run our statements after all. So, the “journalist’s” sensational claims about us being Nazis went unchallenged. We emailed NBC this morning to ask why our statement wasn’t aired. We were given a lame excuse and told that they would run it tomorrow (after the damage had been done) and that they would be happy to interview me about it (which was their aim all along because journalism today is all about ratings and not about truth).

The interview itself was quite an eye-opener. I’m not sure what “ugly innuendo” was in my Facebook post or why it is so controversial to suggest that the presence of a hostile “journalist” writing a hostile book about me is an imposition on my children who simply want to enjoy their summer outside. When I say or write “leave my kids alone,” it means simply that: let my kids have a fun summer without having a “journalist” 15 ft from their play area. How that equates me with the Nazis is quite beyond me. If receiving nasty emails and even death threats is the standard by which we judge “inciting hatred,” then the left in this country has been “inciting hatred” on my family for almost two years now. We don’t complain about this or call people “Nazis” because we value freedom of speech enough to believe that even ignorant and hateful people have a right to it. It’s a shame that a self-proclaimed “journalist” doesn’t understand this.

And it’s a shame that Todd and I had another disappointing encounter with the media on Memorial Day of all days. It was time that we could have spent with our kids and on a day when we honor those who have died in defense of our Constitution, including our freedom of the press.

Freedom of the press is integral to our democracy, but reporters must be held accountable because with power comes responsibility. A corrupt, deceptive, and manipulative media can ruin the lives of good people, disrupt families, destroy reputations, and ultimately hurt our country.

I’d like to believe that it’s not too late to demand integrity from our media. Thank goodness for social networking sites like this and new media sites which have allowed us to get around the “lamestream” media and present the facts. But let this story be another example of why you must seek out facts and truth about anything and everything you see reported today.

McGinniss compares Palin’s tactics to Nazi Germany

Posted by loricalabrese on June 1, 2010

The most talked about fence in the country and the author cited as the main cause for the 14 ft. fence that’s become known as “The Great Wall” made its way onto NBC’s Today Show Tuesday morning.

Joe McGinniss, the controversial author, who has moved next door to the subject of his next expose, Sarah Palin, has many questioning his move. Is it immersive journalism or stalking?

McGinniss, who also gave an interview to the Washington Post’s David Weigel, told Matt Lauer he would live in the house if the Palin’s lived on the moon.

McGinniss claimed he needed to be in Wasilla to do his work and that his work is not to be in the house. He said he “couldn’t care less about her kids,” and was not there to observe the Palins. His goal is to talk to the people who have lived in Wasilla for 40 years, who know the Palin’s best and can trace their evolution.

At the very start of the interview, McGinniss got defensive as he attempted to clarify the photo posted by Sarah Palin on her facebook page of McGinniss standing on the deck of his newly rented home in which she questions, “Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden, and the family’s swimming hole?” McGinniss wanted to clarify that he was not peering in on the children, that he was as far away from the Palin home as he could get (on the other side of the deck), and that he was talking on the cell phone. Matt Lauer pointed out that Palin was probably talking about what McGinniss could do from that deck, not at that particular moment.

McGinniss said his wife will be moving in with him soon and his daughter and three grandchildren will be able to visit and enjoy relaxation while he works.

McGinniss said, “I moved here and didn’t tell anybody outside of my family. I wanted to tell the Palins directly, personally, face-to-face, and work out some accomodation with them to live peacefully.” But McGinniss added that, “Sarah hysterically puts up this Facebook page.” He claimed it was revolting what Palin has caused people to say about him and pointed out the power Palin has to incite hatred and her readiness to do it. He compared the same kind of tactic to that of the Nazi troopers used in Germany in the 30s and said he didn’t think there was any place for it in America.

When Lauer asked McGinniss what he would do if the roles were reversed, McGinniss said, “I would go over and shake hands and maybe give her a plate of cookies and say welcome to the neighborhood.”
