Two More Real Sources Debunk Vanity Fair’s Ghost Sources

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 7, 2010

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


It’s time for Vanity Fair and Michael Gross to just come out and say that his article on Governor Palin is a complete hit piece designed to taint her reputation via anonymous sources. As I state here, it would be best if Gross made a full retraction like yesterday because his assertions are unraveling little by little.

Katrina Trinko reports in the National Review Online today:

While Vanity Fair writer Michael Joseph Gross has admitted he erred in saying that little Trig Palin was at one event (although VF has yet to correct — or note — the error in the online piece), he still hasn’t retracted any of the other inaccuracies in his Sarah Palin piece. And there are plenty.

Earlier today I spoke to long-time Palin friend (they’ve known each other since elementary school) Kristan Cole, who completely denies Gross’s characterization of her and Palin’s relationship in this passage:

People who know Kristan Cole and Kris Perry, her closest local friends and advisers of longest standing, say that the relationships have deteriorated. Her former aides Meg Stapleton and Ivy Frye are said to have parted with Palin on bad terms.

Apparently, “people who know” was code for “strangers who speculate.” “[It’s] absolutely not true. I don’t know where they get this stuff from, honestly,” said Cole about whether her relationship with Palin had deteriorated. On the contrary, she affectionately described the care the Palins had shown her throughout the summer, after she had broken her hip while running a 12K race. “She [Palin] was really concerned. Both her and Todd kept in contact with me, to check on me and see how everything was going. No matter where they were.”

Trinko goes on to refer to my Conservatives4Palin article where I shared what Palin friend, and former employee, Ivy Frye, told me:

I didn’t leave on “bad terms.” I’ve known the Palins for many years and I respect them personally and professionally. Our relationship is not “deteriorated.” In fact, I just waved campaign signs with Todd and Sarah last week, and went 4-wheeling with Willow and Piper. Gross’ 8 page hit piece is a complete work of fiction from beginning to end. And the media elite wonder why we call them “lame stream.”

But that’s not all. Joining Kristan Cole and Ivy Frye is Meghan Stapleton who was a long time Palin aide and spokesperson until February when she resigned to spend more time with her little girl. Here’s what Trinko writes:

Meghan Stapleton (noted in the quote above as being on “bad terms” with Palin) e-mails me that the assertion is completely false. Her statement:

After years of working for Governor Sarah Palin and living with her for weeks at a time, I don’t recognize the person described in this latest VF hit piece. This is just nonsense and despicable. The Palins and I also remain close – not a difficult fact to check.

There’s more in the article that exposes Gross’ gross bag of lies and poor “journalism.” Read the full piece here. For other articles that totally refute the Vanity Fair article with real stories by real people, go here, here, here, and here.

Can we believe anything this guy has said? Not a chance. I’ll tell you this, too: with the state of “journalism” these days, each of us must seek the truth for ourselves because we simply cannot trust the lamestream media.

Gov Palin Ignore Crow. Never Stop Talking That Way

Posted by Ron Devito on September 7, 2010

In her latest song, “Say What You Want,” Sheryl Crow crows about her distaste for “Don’t retreat. Reload.” The lyric in question is “I heard you tell me to reload. You got a lot of nerve to talk that way. Someone unplug the microphone. I’m tired of all the fighting, cynicism, and backbiting. Can’t even hear myself think. You pour the Kool Aid, and then we drink.”

Using the First Amendment to Deny First Amendment Rights

How ironic that Crow uses her First Amendment rights to call for the revoking of Gov. Palin’s with “someone unplug the microphone.” Par for the course in leftist ideology.

Metaphor

We would think that someone who sings by profession should know the meaning of metaphor, but a refresher from Merriam-Webster might be in order:


met·a·phor noun \’me-tə-,fȯr also -fər\ : 1. a figure of speech in which a word or phrase literally denoting one kind of object or idea is used in place of another to suggest a likeness or analogy between them (as in drowning in money); broadly : figurative language — compare SIMILE.

We, at US for Palin, love the “Don’t retreat. Reload” metaphor and often use this frame grab from SteveOh’s YouTube Range Day video showing a woman reloading an M-1A/M-14. For our soldiers and law enforcement taking out the bad guys, the term is actually quite literal. But, Governor Palin’s usage was metaphorical and intended for the political battlefield.

“Don’t retreat. Reload!” was actually coined by Gov. Palin’s father, Chuck Heath. She first referenced it in Going Rogue as the opening to Chapter 6, on p. 383, where he said, “Sarah’s not retreating! She’s reloading!” She used the term in February 2010 as a metaphorical reference to supporting conservative candidates for the mid-term elections. It was this latest usage that created quite the stir. Liberal heads exploded at the sight of a SarahPAC ad with 20 crosshairs on it and a list of the candidates targeted to be voted out of office. Mama and Papa Grizzlies roared with delight.

Political Metaphor

In political parlance, “Don’t retreat. Reload!” means we support and work for our candidates in offices where our side lost previously. We do not just give up, walk away, and acquiesce. We don’t bury our heads in the sand like ostriches; we don’t sit out elections; and we don’t permit ourselves to be complacent or apathetic. The ballot is the M-14 (or whatever rifle you prefer) in this equation, your vote is a fresh magazine being loaded, and your casting of the vote is dropping the bolt to chamber a fresh round, completing the reload.

Personal Metaphor

The term also has significance to our personal lives. “Reloading” means facing your problems – whatever they may be – head on and taking positive action to resolve them. “Retreating” is running away from your problems. Not referenced by either retreating or reloading, insanity is continuing the same failed solutions over and over again in the hope that the next iteration will work.

Please Continue Talking to us That Way

Crow and her liberal colleagues might not like the origin of the metaphor, which is her First Amendment right, but she might be wise to consider that without the Second, there is no First. There is nothing wrong with gun metaphors. For my part, I am ecstatic that Gov. Palin and her father told us to reload. I admire Gov. Palin’s nerve, and want her to continue talking to us that way.

My Hero

Since we’re talking music, I’ll close with this lyric:

“There goes my hero. Watch HER as SHE goes.”

Lyric: Foo Fighters, “My Hero”. Personal pronouns modified by Ron Devito to reference Gov. Palin.

Dr. Gina Loudon: Gross and Vanity Fair Owe Apology to Sarah Palin

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 7, 2010

Another excellent article about the Vanity Fair controversy posted by Dr. Gina Loudon at Big Journalism today:

Michael Joseph Gross and Vanity Fair Still Owe Sarah Palin an Apology

Posted by Dr. Gina Loudon Sep 7th 2010 at 5:46 am

Michael Joseph Gross has now admitted that he made an “error” in regard to his slimy hit piece in Vanity Fair that he wrote about Sarah Palin.  He falsely reported that Sarah somehow disregarded her child at an event, when he knew the child was mine, and I took him from the Governor who was holding him right up until she was walking on stage. 

He did not apologize to Sarah Palin, to me, or to either of our children, for the record.  He also has not retracted the other 99 lies in the piece.  At least not yet. 

Vodpod videos no longer available.
He accuses Sarah Palin of creating fictitious PACs to “hide” money she is supposedly collecting from all of these groups.   He speaks specifically in his piece about the “Take America Back” rally where the Governor, and I spoke, among others. 

Not that Mr. Gross would know a pang of patriotism if he ran into a flagpole, but it appears a tutorial might be in order.  Since the MSM lies, distorts, and twists everything that happens in this country, and has for too long now, patriots rose up to re-claim what belongs to us.  Like 60% of the country, I am a patriot.  That means I (and my 100 million closest friends) love this country and you would have to pry my gun out of my cold, dead hands to take it from me. 

We see that our country is on a path to tyranny (that means we are losing our liberty and liberty means freedom), and we blame you in the media.   Yes, you–irresponsible slanderers in media and politics who dispense promiscuous accusations at every turn about every patriot they can attack.   MSM, that is what you do.  It is what you have done for about 30 years, with no checks in place, and now you will stop.   Or, we will stop you.   This is how: 

  • When you lie, we will tell the whole world the truth.  The truth cannot be hidden for long.
  • When you race-bait, we will open our arms and hearts to minorities and they will find that real liberty is on the right side of the political spectrum.
  • When you twist, we will expose you and your talk show, newspaper or magazine will be fully discredited and eventually, die off.
  • When you slander with the tawdry tactic of innuendo and insinuation, we will counter punch with facts.  As you lose credibility you will lose ratings, and readership, and revenue.
  • When you refuse to award our best with Nobel Peace Prizes, Pulitzer Prizes, and Emmy Awards, we will create our own.  Our sheer numbers will make us bigger than you, and your award, and pretty soon your awards will mean nothing
  • Eventually you will turn on each other, like a gang of bandits clamoring for a doubloon.  It is already happening, isn’t it?

But wait…you already know a little bit about this, don’t you, Mr. Gross?  Did you not work for social liberal and Council of Foreign Relations member Governor William Weld  (R-MA), who resigned his governorship after President Clinton appointed him Ambassador to Mexico — a post to which he was never confirmed? Perhaps your hostility toward Sarah and her appeal to the conservative uprising is that you have never been comfortable with the conservative wing.  But I digress. 

 

The PACs that you accuse Governor Palin of forming and using for profit are nothing of the sort.  These PACs are born of passion—love of liberty and freedom that you simply don’t have the tools in your belt to fight, Mr. Gross.   Folks like us have fought for our liberty against far more skillful adversaries than you. 

You are well aware of what it takes to host an event with thousands of people present.  It requires a venue, staging, lighting, megatrons, a sound system, travel and hotel expenses for all 10-20 speakers, catering, security, insurance, music, decorations, the list goes on.  It takes a lot of patriots who are willing to give of their time and talents to host an event like this, and how dare you attack them for exercising their first amendment rights! 

You are trying to make a buck, and a name for yourself in journalism using the blood, sweat and tears of patriots as your whipping post.  Did you have any idea how much patriot ink is offered for free?  We do it because we are compelled by our passion, commitment to truth, and sheer determination to eradicate the world of your kind of lies. Your tactic is no longer working, and your “trade” will no longer be tolerated.   Your ratings are gone, your outlets are dying, and your members are dissipating, while ours are growing exponentially.  We are not here for money, or glory, or personal gain.  You need to learn this if you are going to survive in media.  For us, it is not personal; it is our God instructed duty. 

You no longer own the airwaves, the media screens, or the printed page.  You might all need a job one day soon. Perhaps you should face the realities. 

We believe that everything we hold sacred is threatened, and we hold you (the leftist media and politicians) responsible.  As I said in my first post, Mr. Gross, we do agree on one thing.  You wrote: 

“But it is Palin’s persistent encouragement of the prayer warriors that most clearly reveals her worldview: she is good, her opponents are evil, and the war is on.” 

And I replied: 

Agreed. She is good, her opponents are evil, and the war is on! 

The right thing to do is to write a formal apology to Sarah Palin, her family, and all liberty-loving patriots across the country.  We are a forgiving lot.  If you could manage that level of honesty, you would be shocked at the good things that would come your way, not the least of which is your right to continue to write whatever you believe about whatever topic you desire.  How ironic that we, your targets, are actually the ones who might save your job for you. 

Perhaps you have already apologized, in a backhanded kind of way.  I think your piece (which has been rebuked by liberals and conservatives alike) may have pushed anyone who doubted the Palins square into their corner.  You may have done more for her than a million dollars worth of marketing.  You may have boosted her shot at the White House. We may all be thanking you for that one day.  You betcha’!

Glenn Beck Visits Alaska on 9/11

Posted by Ron Devito on September 7, 2010

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

Glenn’s coming to the Last Frontier! I hope my fellow Alaskans (and anyone visiting from Outside) will join me this Saturday, September 11, 2010, at Anchorage’s Dena’ina Center at 8:00 p.m. Glenn Beck will be there – you won’t want to miss it. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com.

We can count on Glenn to make the night interesting and inspiring, and I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will “never forget.” Hope to see you there!

Jews for Sarah Featured in Jerusalem Post Article

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 7, 2010

Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin and Benyamin Korn, the organization’s founder, were featured in an article at the Jerusalem Post.  Although the article is a little negative toward Governor Palin (probably due to the influence of the lamestream media), author Jan Jeben-Eilon provides a detailed account of the progress that Benyamin Korn is making with this new movement.

WHEN BENYAMIN KORN, 54, a self-described activist, journalist, son of a Reform rabbi, father of four teenagers and a ba’al teshuva (someone who has become religiously observant), launched the Jews for Sarah Palin website in mid-April, he was the butt of jokes by friends and foes alike.

After all, 78 percent of American Jews had supported the Democratic presidential ticket in 2008, according to exit polls. And an American Jewish Committee poll in September showed that Jews disapproved of Palin by a 54 to 37 percent margin, indicating that the addition of the former Alaskan governor to the Republican ticket was part of the reason for the Jewish vote.

Korn is a longtime friend of Jeremy Ben- Ami, executive director of the left-wing, twoyear- old, pro-Israel, pro-peace group, J Street, who refers to Korn by his nickname. “If ‘Buddy’ Korn is able to pull together enough Jews who are publicly willing to support Sarah Palin that he could form a minyan (prayer quorum of ten), more power to him,” Ben-Ami writes in an e-mail to The Jerusalem Report.

“There hasn’t been anyone in American politics that I can remember attracting higher negative ratings among Jewish Americans than Sarah Palin.

“I guess that’s the beauty of democracy – even the 14 percent of American Jews who have a favorable opinion of Sarah Palin deserve a political home,” he quips.

And David A. Harris, president of the National Jewish Democratic Council, comments to The Report, “They [Jews who support Palin] can hold their national conference in a phone booth, kosher-catered with four shwarmas.

I welcome them to talk as much about Sarah Palin as possible because it will only help our efforts. She’s anathema to the majority of American Jews, even Republicans.”

Jews have consistently supported the Democratic Party ever since Franklin Roosevelt initiated the New Deal in the 1930s.

“American Jews are Democrats at heart,” Harris says. And it is certainly too early to determine whether Korn will be able to mobilize Jewish support for Palin – who hasn’t announced her future plans, including whether or not she’ll run for president in 2012.

Yet unquestionably, Korn seems to have tapped a reservoir of growing American Jewish disappointment in President Barack Obama’s handling of the US relationship with Israel.

And the activities of Jews for Palin and other recently established, like-minded groups are indicators that the acrimony within the Jewish community, so palpable during the 2008 elections, has not died down.

Korn is particularly excited about a program his group is cosponsoring with the Pennsylvania Family Institute in Hershey, Pennsylvania, at the end of August, where Palin will be speaking.

IN FACT, KORN HAD PLANNED TO launch his organization, Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin, and website this summer, but was spurred to speed up the process by three months because, in his opinion, the Obama Administration was not handling the US’s relationship with Israel properly. “This was a serious development, so I decided to launch immediately,” he explains. He did so on April 16, a time chosen “to coincide with Yom Ha’atzma’ut [Israel Independence Day] and Jewish independence from Barak Obama.”

Although Korn, former editor of the Philadelphia Jewish Exponent, hasn’t built his organization as quickly as he anticipated, he is anything but discouraged.

Korn tells The Report that he is busy “assembling the components” of his new organization for which he hopes to have 50 board members and several chapters formed around the country. As of mid-August, he still had less than two dozen board members and was not ready to announce any chapters. A number of his board members joined in the final days of July, as the advertising war in a pivotal Pennsylvania Senate race heated up. That’s when Korn announced several new members to his advisory board. Tellingly, the majority are Pennsylvanian businesspeople.

“We haven’t focused on building the board so much. We’re working under battlefield conditions and must handle the pressing needs first,” Korn says, noting that the organization has already “established itself as an advocate for Palin” and gained what he refers to as “significant media attention.” He underlines the fact that he is launching this organization “out of our garage” and acknowledges that some people he’s asked to join his board have turned him down. “Some can’t get involved politically, and others say it’s just not their cup of tea.”

Still his website, http://www.jewsforsarah.com, has received 50,000 hits. Korn claims that twothirds of these are from Jews, 85 percent of which have been positive, he says. “This is clearly an unscientific observation,” he acknowledges, “but I’m judging this on the correspondence we get. The Jewish mail has been three-to-one supportive, although we get a lot of hostile mail too.”

Korn would not reveal the details of the national chapter network he hopes to establish because, he says, the organization is still in the planning stages. But he does divulge that his group will have an “energizing public gathering” in northern New Jersey in the fall. “We want to target the modern Orthodox, and New Jersey is the heartland of the modern-Orthodox community. There are probably 40,000-50,000 Orthodox families in the area.” The grand event he plans will be held well before the Congressional mid-term elections (in early November) and will show, he says, that “hundreds, if not thousands [of Jews], support Sarah Palin. We will attract a lot of notice the way we’re going to do it,” he adds.

Korn established his organization as a private, limited corporation, which means that donations to “Jews for Palin” are not tax-deductible, and promises that the composition of the board and the public event will demonstrate to the quizzical public that Palin has support from the American Jewish community.
PALIN SEEMS TO ATTRACT THE majority of her supporters in the conservative or neo-conservative pockets along the East Coast. In March, conservative writer Norman Podhoretz published an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal in which he wrote that he would “rather have Sarah Palin sitting in the Oval Office than Barack Obama.”

Former editor of The Forward Seth Lipsky, now independent, tells The Report that Palin’s concern over the collapse in the value of the dollar and her pro-business stance are among the reasons she’s gaining support.

In a November 2009 editorial in The New York Sun, Lipsky called her worldview, “Palinism” and wrote, “This started to come into view for us when she gave her interview to Barbara Walters,” he wrote, noting that when asked what she thought of Israel’s West Bank settlements Palin responded, “I disagree with the Obama Administration on that… I don’t think that the Obama Administration has any right to tell Israel that the Jewish settlements cannot expand.”

Added Lipsky, “The formulation by the former Alaska governor struck us as a wonderful statement of an emerging policy. It provides a glimpse of a leader who would respect Israel’s right to establish, democratically, its own strategy in its own sphere and could restore the standing of America’s president in the eyes in (sic) the Israelis, among whom it has plunged…” Another writer who avidly supports Palin, and is on the advisory board of the Jews for Sarah Palin group, is Long Island-based Pamela Geller, founder of Stop Islamicization of America and co-author of the new book, “The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.” “I pray she runs for president. To me, as an American, she is the ideal ‘man,’ so to speak. She represents the American ideal,” Geller tells The Report.

“She’s unafraid. We live in a culture that is vicious and dominated by the left. She never backs down, though. She believes in small government and rugged individuality.”

Geller continues, saying that “as an American,” she supports Palin’s platform of low taxes, a strong foreign policy, small government and she’s unapologetic for America’s greatness. And noting Palin’s support for Israel she adds, “As an American Jew… I believe Israel is on the front line of a jihad. Israel is absorbing terrorism and if it were not there, we would be [absorbing terrorism] in America.”

Another American Jew who strongly supports Palin and sits on the advisory board of Jews for Sarah Palin is former Georgia state legislator Mitchell Kaye. Palin’s strong support of Israel, he says, “comes from her heart and ties into her upbringing. Too many others just pander. She’s also plain-talking; she’s a real person. And lastly, she’s a reformer. She challenged corruption in her own party. I’ve been supporting her for a while, but now that she came out against the mosque at Ground Zero,” his support is solidified.

Kaye, who spoke to The Report from Washington, D.C., where he was participating in the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) lobbying on Capitol Hill, charges that the 70-80 percent of American Jews who vote for Democratic candidates do so “without knowing the issues.”

[…]

After the Philadelphia-based newspaper, the Jewish Exponent, branded those who are attacking Sestak as “extremists,” Korn’s “American Jews for Sarah Palin” ran an ad the last week in July naming a number of well-known Philadelphia Jews to its growing advisory board. Miffed, Korn tells The Report, “I was not personally offended but it’s a way of demonizing people to distract from the message. I’m a third-generation Philadelphia Federation supporter,” he adds, explaining that this, in his opinion, provides him with “some credentials” in the American Jewish community.

Pollak says ECI has no ties to AIPAC nor the group American Jews for Sarah Palin.

However, by the end of July, ECI had mass emailed Korn’s op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

[…]

Korn is much more effusive about his group’s future plans. “We know how to build an organization and the new technology allows us to have two-way communication with each hit [on its website]. We’re building up our membership, chapters and mailing lists. Many people have already donated money, from $5 to $180 to substantially more,” he says. “We have a nucleus of chapters in a dozen cities without even starting. Once we go public, it will create a big splash. They understand that we are the cause they want to support. It’s not just a website; our mission statement resonates with people. We’ve received hundreds of comments that say, ‘Thank God, there are others who feel this way and are doing something.’” Noting that his goal is to “create space for Sarah Palin in Jewish communication” and to support her “in whatever she does, whether she becomes a candidate or not,” Korn obviously feels that American Jews for Sarah Palin has achieved that goal. “I know the Palin people are aware of us.”  

Yes, we are!   Governor Palin’s suporters are impressed that this movement is progressing so rapidly.  In a few short months,  Jews for Sarah’s outreach has expanded to include an excellent website,  op-eds such as this one at the New York Sun, a Shabbaton at Governor Palin’s Hershey PA event, and a new radio show.  And that is just the beginning of what will likely become a powerful political movement as American Jews realize who will best represent their interests.

h/tp Benyamin Korn
