Gov. Palin: “How About Protecting Our Littlest Sisters in the Womb?”

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 27, 2010

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


Last night, Governor Palin spoke in Jacksonville, FL at a fundraiser for Heroic Media, a faith-based pro-life group. Thursday, of course, was Women’s Equality Day, which I addressed here.

Governor Palin’s own experience walking the walk is a testimony of strength and courage and is one reason so many women respect her–and also the reason so many Leftists despise her. Those in the room last night were obviously inspired by the Governor’s life story. Deirdre Conner shares:

Heroic Media, a faith-based group, is dedicated to buying ad space on television, websites and billboards to encourage women not to abort their babies.

Mark Nelson, the Florida director for the group, said it is aiming to raise about $150,000 to buy ad spots over a 10-week period in Jacksonville. The group said on Thursday that it has raised about $50,000 toward that effort.

Palin said that after her experience learning that her son, Trig, who was born with Down syndrome – as well as her daughter Bristol’s unplanned pregnancy – gave her better insight into what women go through when having a baby under “less than ideal circumstances.” And, the former Alaska governor said, it deepened her belief that activism is needed to let women know that they are capable of motherhood, no matter what the challenges.

Concerning faux women’s groups that are more interested in a woman’s “right” to abort her child than truly empowering that woman or that child, the Governor asked:

How about protecting our littlest sisters in the womb on equality day?”

To the Barricades for Joe Miller!

Posted by Ron Devito on August 27, 2010

The Palin blogosphere has been abuzz about how the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent its general counsel Sean Cairncross “to Alaska at the request of Sen. Lisa Murkowski to help provide guidance to the GOP incumbent finds herself trailing attorney Joe Miller by roughly 1,600 votes.” Thomas Schmitz, covered it for Palin Promotions and US for Palin.

Conservatives4Palin’s Rob Harrison just published an article explaining the importance of taking up this fight so that Lisa Murkowski does not pull chicanery to subvert the will of Alaska’s people in her desperate bid to retain power. With 100% of the precincts reported, Joe Miller won the day fair and square. Absentee ballots are highly likely to be in his favor, especially military ballots.

Sarah Palin, Allen West, And Jesse Kelly Bring The Awesome To America’s Nightly Scoreboard

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 27, 2010

Vodpod videos no longer available.

By Gary P Jackson

David Asman is on of our favorite anchors at Fox Business News (and all of Fox for that matter) He is a superb analyst and interviewer. His show, America’s Nightly Scoreboard, is must see TV.

Wednesday night he had on Sarah Palin and the two talked about a wide range of topics, including the stunning victory in progress of Joe Miller’s over Lisa “Daddy’s Girl” Murkowski.

Also joining in are Lt Col Allen West, who Sarah endorsed this spring, and won big in Florida last night, as well as Arizona’s Jesse Kelly.

All three of these outstanding leaders shine here and show why we need them in D.C.

We like Asman’s style. He asks questions, then actually allows his guests to answer them. In this format, Sarah gets a chance to really elaborate on what she’s thinking. She also gives us an insight into her management style.

“Sarah Palin Kicked The Door Open, And A Lot Of Women Started Going Through”

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 27, 2010

There’s an unsettling of the political apple cart. Sarah Palin kicked the door open, and a lot of women started going through.

~ Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List

By Gary P Jackson

An interesting piece from Yahoo News:

NEW YORK – The suffragists who 90 years ago won voting rights for women would likely shake their heads in wonder at this election, with its “mama grizzly” candidates and high-stakes woman-vs.-woman showdowns.

The women in key races include a rancher and three multimillionaire former CEOs, one a pro wrestling magnate. Two frontier states — Oklahoma and New Mexico — seem assured of electing their first female governor after both major parties nominated women.

Note: Susanna Martinez, the Republican nominee for New Mexico Governor is endorsed by Sarah Palin, as is Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, the Republican Senate candidate in California, who is about to clean Barbara Boxer’s clock.

Yet in spite of celebrations planned Thursday for Women’s Equality Day, marking the adoption of the 19th Amendment in 1920, American women’s share of high-level political power still lags behind scores of other nations.

Women hold only 17 percent of the seats in Congress — well below Europe’s 22 percent and far behind the Nordic countries’ 42 percent — and the major parties have yet to nominate a woman for president. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign for the Democratic nomination in 2008 collected 18 million votes but still fell short of victory.

The handful of women that you see near the top is just that a handful,” said Erin Vilardi of the White House Project, which seeks to expand women’s role in politics.

At the congressional level, both parties have a hell of a lot of work to do,” Vilardi said. “The culture is still very dominantly male.”

Among the notable developments in this year’s campaign is the emergence of numerous charismatic, conservative women running as Republicans.

In California, wealthy businesswomen Meg Whitman, the ex-CEO of eBay, and Carly Fiorina, ex-CEO of Hewlett-Packard, are the GOP nominees for governor and Senate.

Fiorina is the first Republican woman to take on the Democratic incumbent, Barbara Boxer, since Boxer entered the Senate in 1992, and the race has captured national attention.

In South Dakota, the race for the state’s lone House seat pits the incumbent Democrat, Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin, against Republican legislator Kristi Noem — both of them working moms who grew up on farms. Noem, who helps her husband run a ranch, is one of several GOP woman candidates dubbed “mama grizzlies” because of traits shared with Sarah Palin, the party’s 2008 vice presidential nominee and a political star who’s been doling out endorsements this year.

In Minnesota’s 6th District, the conservative Republican incumbent, outspoken Tea Party favorite Michele Bachmann, is being challenged by Democratic State Sen. Tarryl Clark in what could be one of the nation’s most expensive House races.

Michelle Bachmann will see an easy win here. She will be one of the leaders in the new Congress for sure. She also has Sarah’s support.

In New Mexico, Democrat Diane Denish, the lieutenant governor since 2003, is competing for governor against the GOP’s Susana Martinez, a Latina district attorney who has drawn attention for her tough stance on illegal immigration.

In Oklahoma, Republican U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin, who’s been endorsed by Palin, is favored in the governor’s race over Democratic Lt. Gov. Jari Askins.

According to the Center for American Women in Politics at Rutgers University, there have been only two other woman-vs.-woman gubernatorial contests in U.S. history — in Nebraska in 1986 and Hawaii in 2002.

Florida could join New Mexico and Oklahoma is electing its first woman governor — if Democratic nominee Alex Sink can win in November.

One of the most distinctive female candidates is the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate in Connecticut, Linda McMahon, former CEO of the World Wrestling Entertainment empire that she and her husband developed. McMahon, who says she’ll spend up to $50 million of her own money on the race, was nicknamed “Crotch-kicker” in a statement from the Democratic National Committee.

In Colorado, the issue of male chauvinism surfaced in the campaign for the GOP Senate nomination. Ken Buck — a prosecutor with a strong Tea Party following — prevailed despite criticism for saying he should be backed over rival Jane Norton “because I do not wear high heels.

Sarah had endorsed Norton. It’s obvious to see why she backed Norton over Buck, despite the Tea Party. Sadly, Buck will just be another “good old boy” establishment hack.

Worldwide, women hold 19 percent of the seats in national legislatures, according to the Inter-Parliamentary Union. Its rankings of 186 nations — based on percentage of women in the single or lower chamber of the legislature — has the U.S. tied for 90th with Turkmenistan.

Women have held the top government post in dozens of countries — including Germany, Britain, Australia, Argentina, Israel, India and Turkey.

Several Women’s Equality Day events are planned across the country Thursday.

In California, a great, great, great granddaughter of suffragist leader Elizabeth Cady Stanton will address a rally near the statehouse in Sacramento. In New York, the Susan B. Anthony List — it backs female candidates opposed to abortion — will host a forum on “pro-life feminism.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said the surge of women running as anti-abortion conservatives reflected a “war over who gets to define what feminism means.”

There’s an unsettling of the political apple cart,” Dannenfelser said. “Sarah Palin kicked the door open, and a lot of women started going through.”

Elsewhere in New York, several women’s rights leaders and liberal members of Congress will be speaking at a ceremony renaming a U.S. post office in Queens after Geraldine Ferraro, who in 1984 became the first woman to run for vice president on a major party ticket.

Sarah Palin has has been the driving force behind getting more women involved. Sarah has inspired women all over the country to stand up and be heard. Men too. While Sarah gets a lot of ink for her endorsement of strong Mama Grizzlies, she has endorsed some strong independent, Conservative men as well.

Former General Electric CEO Jack Welch: Alaska Elections Show Sarah Palin A Bigger Force Than Commentators Suggest

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 27, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

Tuesday night was wild to say the least. Your humble blogger is still trying to catch up. One quote that caught my eye, via Twitter is noteworthy though.

Jack Welch, the well respected former CEO of General Electric, took time away from talking baseball to weighed in on Sarah Palin and the phenomenal night she and Joe Miller had in Alaska:

Alaska elections show Palin a bigger force than commentators suggest…Tough being an incumbent so far

After wading through all of the media on Wednesday, suffice it to say that a whole lot of folks share Mr Welch’s opinion!
