Governor Palin Champions Team America

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 29, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

Have you ever watched a boxing match, a basketball game, or even a swim meet–any intense competition? Competitors gear up, take to the ring, the court, or the pool, and prepare to give their best effort. Their preparation is intense and their hopes high. The goal is simple: win.

Real competitors–and I know because I’m one–don’t usually embrace the “it’s not whether you win or lose but how you play the game” concept, which was probably invented by some kid’s parent to make his child feel better after getting destroyed on the court. Real competitors don’t snuggle up to “remember, it’s just a game.” As I told the first basketball team I ever coached, “You want to play a game, go play checkers. Here, we play basketball!” By the way, “Play for fun”? Not on my team; I learned very early on that there just ain’t no fun in losing! So real competitors play to win. They step up to the challenge with a sense of focus and an intent to be victorious, to never let down, to refuse to succumb to any amount of pressure.

That’s the plan, but as admirable as this “never let ’em see you sweat” ideal is–as familiar as it is to those of us who have ever left it all out on the court, or the field, or wherever–the truth is that as the competition progresses, the legs lose their lift, the arms lose some flex, and the body simply loses speed. This becomes the reality no matter the intent. Yes, the good ones find a way to dig deep, but even still, they are affected–if not conquered–by fatigue that comes from taking the punches, the bangs, and the bruises. It’s common. It’s human nature. It’s life.

Then there are the competitors who are otherworldy. They defy nature. There’s nothing common about them. They never stop moving. They never stop being on the offensive. They handle every defense thrown at them. They’re not just good; they’re special. In the world of basketball, Michael Jordan was one such athlete. So was Cynthia Cooper. Today, it’s Kobe Bryant. These type of people come along very rarely in a lifetime. They set their eyes on a target and nothing short of tying them down and locking them up will keep them from getting out there and being competitive.

Governor Palin is one such person. This was the case long before we ever knew who she was. As a basketball player, she played on a broken ankle. As a business owner, she fished with a broken hand, as documented by Joe Hilley. As a mother, she was back on the job within three days of giving birth. Each time there was work to be done, and sitting it out just wasn’t an option. “No pain, no gain,” as they say. So real competitors say, “Bring it on!”

All these years later, not much, if anything, has changed. The Governor is a person who absorbs punch after punch and rides wave after wave, without seeming to lose the slightest bit of strength or effectiveness in the process. With all she’s been put through, she continues on–and never misses a beat. After every attack, there she is–still moving forward, still swinging, and the thing that drives the Left the craziest, still smiling. She is like that champion who simply cannot be defeated because she won’t throw in the towel. Nevermind the full-court press, the dirty fouls, the low blows, the attempts to drown her in a sea of lies. Governor Palin won’t sit on the end of the bench and hide. She simply won’t take a breather. Thus, she wears out her opponents, who simply cannot keep up.

This is why she is so hated by the Left. They’ve tried it all. Nothing works. How does one defeat an opponent who won’t go away, who can’t be annihilated? She is to them what nightmares consist of: an enemy that cannot be destroyed no matter the tactic employed. To those who oppose fiscal responsibility, the Constitution, national security, and American exceptionalism, I have this to say: “be afraid; be very afraid!”

Every time it appears they’ve got her backed in a corner, she takes the non-traversy, redefines it, and refuses to be sidetracked by it: They point out that she wrote on her hand–and she draws attention to the President’s teleprompter and continues to use her own “poor man’s teleprompter.” They misquote her as saying she can see Russia from her house–and she reminds them that she can also see November from there. They use her title as a means to shackle her–and she steps away, proving she doesn’t need a title to make a difference. They even move in next door–and she does something the feds should be doing in our border states: she builds a fence. She even follows up enjoying watching her daughter perform on Dancing with the Stars with a scathing tweet about Pete Rouse a couple hours later. Nothing, absolutely nothing, extinguishes her determination to keep the main thing the main thing. And that’s why they’ll never defeat her, and that’s why they hate her.

Governor Palin’s endorsements will continue to matter, her fundraising will skyrocket all the more, and she will remain a powerful force to be reckoned with because she cannot be conquered. From anonymous campaign staffers to cowardly Journolisters, from attacks on her family to crime at her church, from insane boob-gate to asinine boo-gate, she withstands each impact, and then releases another smackdown Facebook note like nothing ever happened. While continuing to smile, it’s as if she says, “Is this the best you’ve got?”

These are crucial times, and much is at stake. That’s why people who have never been involved politically are suddenly mobilized and mobilizing others. I coached for years, and never did I build a game strategy around a bench warmer, an injured athlete, or a spectator. No, those leading the charge will be hardest hit. And who has been hit harder than the Governor? Who would ever blame her if she packed it in and went home to the state she loves, the family who loves her, and the life they once knew? But isn’t this what the Left wants? The fact that she won’t do it is what they can’t figure out. They stay awake at night contemplating why she isn’t succumbing to the pressure, why she isn’t pulling her jersey to sit out the fourth quarter, why she isn’t in a fetal position on the hardwood floor, waiting for it all to end. They have no answer for her stamina, and she has no intentions to cave.

Every once in a while a competitor emerges with superb skill, undivided focus, and an unbending spine. These are the franchise players. Everyone is gunning for them, yet they never choke. They’ll never be accused of going halfway, nothing will keep them from being out there where and when it matters, and they always find the strength to push past the limitations that constrain regular people. That’s because they’re not regular people. They’re real competitors with a special something that drives them. Governor Palin has those championship qualities.

Governor Palin is working hard to take us where we need to go–back to common sense principles and practical solutions. Her refusal to be sidetracked will keep the target on her back. The Left’s inability to knock her out of the race will only infuriate them more and make them more desperately seek new ways to cause her harm. If what we’ve seen so far is any indication, however, we can be sure that she will continue to take what they throw at her, handle it with grace, and fight like a Grizzly for the future of Team America. And like every real competitor–every champion–she’ll win. And we’ll win with her.

Cocktail Republicans

Posted by ehvogel on September 29, 2010

Let me ask you a question. Do you identify with the Tea Party, or is your inclination toward the “Cocktail” Party? I put it in quotes, because it seems to be in competition with the TEA Party, no quotes needed.

Sarah Palin addressed this last night with Greta Van Susteren.

What Sarah was searching for, and couldn’t quite come up with, was the phrase “Cocktail Party”.

To whit: The word Governor Palin needed on Greta tonight was “Cocktail Party”

This is a perfect analysis of what the Tea Party is railing against in the Republican Party. The elites of the “Cocktail Party” seem to think that we won’t notice, but they are mistaken. It’s already out there.

Sarah Palin: For The Tea Party, November 2nd Is Just The Beginning. This Is The Reawakening Of America

Posted by Gary P Jackson on September 29, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

Tuesday night Greta aired the second part of a two part interview with Sarah Palin. You can view part one, if you missed it, here.

Sarah Palin has thrown down the gauntlet to the Republican elites as well as the radical left. Like the Tea Party itself, Sarah is telling the establishment, in BOTH parties that it’s over. Business as usual isn’t cutting it, and simply will not be allowed to continue.

Anyone who has been paying attention knows the Tea Party is about throwing the bums out. On the Republican side so-called “moderate” (code for far left) candidates are being unceremoniously shown the door by common sense conservatives backed by Tea Party Patriots.

The Tea Party is backing solid common sense candidates against the radical left Marxist-democrats in anticipation of what should be a bloodbath for the radicals come November. The thrashing the Marxist-democrat party is about to experience is like nothing seen before in the history of our Republic.

The next Congress will be decidedly more representative of the American people. That is when the real change begins. That’s when the restoration of America as a Constitutional, Representative Republic, based on the Rule of Law begins.

Sarah, like a lot of us see the Tea Party, not as a political party, a “third party” per se, but more of a watchdog. A permanent watchdog movement that will forever hold the politicians who work for us accountable. As Sarah herself says: “The Tea Party Is The Future Of American Politics

A whole lot of useless, corrupt, congresscritters, in both parties, are going to get fired in November. That is just the start. A lot of the elites think after November has come and gone, the Tea Party Patriots will just go home, and the elites will be able to go back doing what they have always done. They are in for a rude awakening.

In November we will hire a whole new Congress. We will expect them to live up to American values and follow the Constitution. If they can’t get this done, guess what, come 2012, we’ll fire them too, and find someone else to take THEIR place.

It really is that simple.

It’s become abundantly clear that Sarah Palin is going to run for President in 2012. You listen to her words. She, like most of us, is sick of the establishment, the elites, the Ruling Class. Sarah has no problem calling these people out, especially those in her own party.

The left and the media (OK, same thing, I know) have worked overtime to create a caricature of Sarah as some sort of far right ideologue, a hyper-partisan politician. This, of course, is wrong.

One of the things that made Sarah Palin one of the most successful Governors in the nation was her desire to do what was right, not what was good for the party. In fact, I think one could say Sarah has a healthy disdain for both parties. She certainly has no problem taking bad actors in either party to the woodshed when needed. She also had no problem working when anyone, so long as it was good for Alaska. The party affiliation of who she worked with meant little to her.

We all know why the left hates her. Sarah Palin is the most articulate spokesmen for American values and American exceptionalism since Ronald Reagan. Sarah loves this country and believes in this country. She believes in the greatness of the American people. Sarah represents everything the left hates.

Having Sarah Palin as the Republican nominee in 2012 would mean the American people will have a clear choice of good vs evil at the ballot box, not the “lesser of two evils” we are usually treated to. It most certainly won’t be Marxist-democrat vs Marxist-democrat light as is the norm.

This, BTW, is why elements in the Republican Party, the elites, work so hard behind the scenes to discredit Sarah. To dismiss her. The go along, get along “moderates” who are little more than enablers for the Communist left, have no place in Sarah Palin’s Republican Party, and they know it. Sarah Palin is a tough, strong woman. She has the ability and desire to finish what Ronald Reagan started.

Now, how do I know Sarah Palin is running for President? It’s as plain as the nose on your face. Sarah is doing exactly what she did in Alaska before she ran for Governor, and defeated the Republican incumbent, Frank Murkowski.

As you know, Sarah, as the top energy and environmental regulator in Alaska, uncovered massive corruption in and out of Government, with much of it tied to Murkowski. Unable to do anything, as Murkowski was protecting his people, Sarah resigned, and with the threat of prison coming from Alaska’s Attorney General if she blew the whistle, did just that. Sarah blew the whistle on all of these people, and helped some of them find their way to the federal prison system.

This is basically what Sarah is doing now, on a much grander scale. Taking down a bunch of rough and corrupt “good old boys” was just a dress rehearsal for what she is doing to the dysfunctional Republican Party all across the country, and about to do to the Marxist-democrat party.

With roughly 2 years to go, even the time line is about the same as it was up in Alaska.

Sarah has been building a network of solid common sense conservative men and women nationwide who will be there to help her govern this nation and restore our Republic.

Sarah is making sure that when she takes office in 2013 she will have a solid team and be able to hit the ground running.

ABC Television, A Class Act: Yet Another Media Lie About Sarah Palin Debunked

Posted by Gary P Jackson on September 29, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

If you’ve been paying attention, the corrupt, left wing, lamestream media in this country hit a new low last night. As Both Stacy Drake and I wrote about here and here, after Jennifer Grey and her partner, Derek Hough, put on a thrilling performance Monday night, many in the audience were upset that the judges didn’t give them higher scores. As the last judge’s score was given, many erupted, booing quite loudly.

For the record, I thought she got hosed too, and as we now know, so did Sarah Palin, as she was booing as well!

As it happens, and you will see in the video above, while all of this was going on, and Brooke Burke was interviewing Jennifer and Derek, co-host Tom Bergeron was crossing the dance floor to get ready to introduce Sarah.

Now anyone who actually watched the show on Monday night, heard the crowd cheer loudly when Tom introduced Mama Grizzly. If there was gonna be boos, that would have been the time to make it happen.

In fact, every time Bristol and Mark were shown the crowd cheered loudly as well. Bristol and Mark are clearly favorites of both the fans, and the judges, and rightly so. They are doing a great job, as we wrote here.

This should put an end to this nonsense, but sadly, the crazies on the left are already analyzing this modern day Zapruder Film frame by frame. The conspiracy theories are being thought up as I type this. All we need now is a budding young Arlen Specter with a “magic boo” theory and we’ll be all set!

All I can say is ABC and Dancing With The Stars, and the people who produce these shows, are all class acts. They have gone out of their way to point out the lies coming from the corrupt lamestream media, and correct the record.

One thing about this little episode. Over 20 million people, normal, every day people, saw first hand just how far the corrupt media in this country will go to lie about Sarah Palin, even with the most insignificant of things.

That’s 20 million moms and dads and kids who may have never been exposed to the corrupt, limp, impotent losers that make up the lamestream media before. Or at least may have never realized they are lied to on a daily basis by these nimrods.

That’s 20 million people (plus) who will now think twice before believing the next smear against Sarah, or anyone else targeted by these useless “journalists.

That’s a good thing.

You Know … Bristol Palin Really Is A Great Dancer

Posted by Gary P Jackson on September 29, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

You know, if someone told me a few months back I’d be watching a show about ballroom dancing, let alone writing about said show, I would have laughed in their face. My entertainment generally includes 8000 horsepower nitro burning engines going down the quarter mile, and I write about politics and the shape our nation is in, because I feel that is what matters.

One of the cool things about being a Sarah Palin supporter is you never really know what’s coming next. There is always so much excitement surrounding Sarah, and so many opportunities. Now we can add Bristol Palin to the mix.

Bristol, sans Ricky Hollywood, is quite an interesting person in her own right. We’ve all witnessed some of the hard times, the craziness caused by her unfortunate time spent with professional leech, Levi Johnston, but Bristol has gotten past all of that and really stepped up.

As a single mom, she’s worked like everyone else, earning a paycheck to support her son, but having such a high profile and well respected mother has opened up some other opportunities as well. Bristol has had the opportunity to advocate for causes she cares about, and has recently taken to the lecture circuit, like mom, and is giving speeches to groups and sharing her message.

Then came Dancing With The Stars.

I wasn’t sure what Bristol was capable of. I watched the first installment and frankly was quite impressed. For someone who had never danced, I thought she was more than acceptable. Doing this in front of a live audience is tough, but knowing over 20 million people are also watching, well, that’s intimidating. Her performance was quite good.

Of course, this is a team sport, and man, Bristol couldn’t have gotten a better partner in this deal. Mark Ballas is an incredibly talented guy. He’s a great dancer, and an even greater teacher. He is incredibly patient, and really takes care of Bristol.

I was struck by one thing watching this week’s show, as well as last week’s. With a lot of the couples, there is a tad bit of tension. This simply doesn’t seem to exist between Bristol and Mark. There is a serious chemistry there. Good chemistry is needed for a team to work well, no matter the sport.

It was simply a delight to watch Bristol and Mark dance this week. They are quite beautiful together. Technically they were perfect, but past that, they were exciting, even playful. You could tell both Bristol and Mark were really enjoying the dance, and the footwork was just incredible.

During the judging portion it was said that Bristol should learn a bit more about acting, for the performance. I totally disagree. Bristol and Mark do so well together that if one didn’t know better, you’d think they were an item. That’s how much chemistry they have together, and how much fun they are obviously having.

How well did they do? Well, last week they scored mid pack with an 18 out of a possible 30 points. To put that in perspective, the top score was Jennifer Grey’s 24. This week Bristol and Mark scored a 22. That’s a 4 point jump in the scoring, a HUGE improvement. Most dancers either stayed the same, or scored less than last week.

Their performance was exciting and beautiful.

There are several good teams in this deal. Jennifer Grey, for example, is simply marvelous. She really is spectacular. Mark Warner is doing well, mostly because his partner is so good, and so fun. However, no couple has that spark that Bristol and Mark do. They’ve made this hairy legged old boy a fan of ballroom dancing!

Of course, Monday night’s show wasn’t without controversy, ginned up by the corrupt lamestream media. If you were following out Twitter feed late, you know what I mean.

The audience booed the judges several times during the night, mostly for remarks they made to the dancers. The really loud booing came after Jennifer Grey danced. Jennifer again had the high score of the night, a 24, but everyone clearly thought she deserved more, including me. It was quite clear that Jennifer put every ounce of her soul into that dance. The boos were long and loud.

Enter the corrupt, lamestream media. Before the show was even over all of the radical lefties were reporting the crowd was booing Sarah Palin, an out and out lie.

Of course, this was the headline of the day today. The corrupt media choosing this, rather than the FBI probe of Barack Obama’s best buddy, SEIU union thug, Andy Stern, the person who has visited the White House more than anyone since Obama has been in office.

A huge scandal, with one of Barack Obama’s closest advisers, by clearly, lying about Sarah Palin was more important to these corrupt losers.

Stacy Drake covered this very well here.

Our friend Sheya at Palin TV put together a video of clips from DWTS as well as the Entertainment Tonight’s visit to Wasilla. As you watch the video above, you’ll see Sarah introduced to cheers, not jeers. One would thing if the malcontents that were supposedly booing Sarah, were going to do it, that would have been their day in the sunshine.

When Bristol and Mark were introduced for their dance, the audience cheered loudly, and cheered several times during the performance. Like the judges, the audience really likes these two …. a lot.

My take-aways?

1. At this point the corrupt media has become a joke. They are so partisan, so ridiculous, and frankly, so afraid, they can’t even control themselves long enough to report honestly on a friggin’ dance contest.

2. Bristol Palin really can dance. Like her mother she is a quick study. She and Mark are a delight to watch. Just plain good stuff. These two are serious contenders for the win. Jennifer Grey will be tough to beat, she’s a great dancer and there is a sentimental connection with a lot of folks, but if any team can beat her and her partner, it will be Bristol and Mark. They have really captured America’s imagination.

Thanks again to Sheya at PalinTV for putting the video together.

Sullivan Apologizes for Pushing Boo-Gate

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 29, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

As most are aware, the Internet was abuzz with talk that Governor Palin was booed while in the Dancing with the Stars studio to cheer on her daughter, Bristol. Andrew Sullivan got caught up in Boo-Gate and then stated:

If DWTS explains what the booing was about and it had nothing to do with Sarah Palin’s emergence, we will, as always, correct the record.

When ABC squashed the booing rumors, Sullivan wrote:

ABC has now corrected the record. The booing was not about Sarah Palin but a reaction to an announcement of scores. The Dish apologizes for jumping to conclusions.

It blows my mind that people are so threatened by Governor Palin that they get all giddy at the mere thought that she would be treated poorly by an audience of people. The stories out there by people who were praying fervently that they were on to something is unbelievable. Some still refuse to accept ABC’s word on this. Sorry, folks, but audiences still stand in line to hear the Governor speak and to applaud the impact she’s having on the upcoming mid-term elections and the nation overall.

Now, on to the next “gate.” I’m sure it’s coming soon. I’ll be here to debunk that one, too.

US 4 Palin SarahPAC 3Q Money Bomb

Posted by Ron Devito on September 29, 2010

SarahPAC delineated why this day is so important in a mailing sent to donors. Salient point:

Thursday, September 30th is the last day of the month.

It’s also a crucial Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing deadline.

Why is this FEC report so important?

Rightly or wrongly, both Republicans and Democrat leaders, political pundits, candidates, and especially the national news media use it as a gauge to measure our strength as a political action committee.

If we have what they consider a poor report, you can bet the biased news media will a print a headline that says “Sarah Palin’s Influence Running Out of Steam.”

But if our report shows we’ve raised more money than the left-wing committees, folks will know we are a force to be reckoned with and the headline will read:

“Sarah Palin Conservatives running Obama Liberals Out of Town!”

Please visit SarahPAC and make a donation: $5, $10, $20, $25, $50, $100, $200 – whatever you can afford – or have fun and go with a symbolic amount: $20.12, $112 (for November 2) for instance.

A few grains of salt to take with that WSJ/NBC Poll

Posted by joshpainter on September 29, 2010

We’re talking about the poll that the lamestream media is hyping today as supposedly showing Democrats getting more excited about the midterm elections. You know, the one which allegedly shows that Bill Clinton is the most popular politician in the country and purports that Sarah Palin has lower approval ratings than Harry Reid? Yes, that one. Well, the devil is in the internals, as we always like to say when we’re talking about polls. So here are a few grains of salt that need to be taken with this poll:

FACTUALS: Now I am going to ask you a few questions for statistical purposes only.

QP1a Now, many people we’ve talked with tonight were unable to vote in primary elections this year, how about you, did you vote in a 2010 primary election in your state? (IF “YES,” THEN ASK:) And, did you vote in the
Democratic or Republican Party Primary?+
Yes, voted in a Republican Party Primary …………… 28
Yes, voted in a Democratic Party Primary……………. 33
Yes, voted in an Open Primary (VOL) ……………… 4
No, did not vote in any primaries ……………………….. 34
Not sure …………………………………………………….. 1
+ Results shown reflect responses among registered voters.

F1b/c. A lot of people are unable to get out and vote for many reasons. Did you happen to vote in last November’s election for president? (IF “YES,” ASK:) For whom did you vote — Barack Obama, John McCain, or someone else?
Yes, Voted 82
Voted for Barack Obama……………. 41
Voted for John McCain………………. 31
Voted for someone else …………….. 5
Not sure …………………………………. 5
No, Did Not Vote ………………………. 18
Not sure ……………………………….. –


QF4 Generally speaking, do you think of yourself as (ROTATE:) a Democrat, a Republican, an independent, or something else? (IF “DEMOCRAT” OR “REPUBLICAN,” ASK:) Would you call yourself a strong (Democrat/Republican) or not a very strong (Democrat/Republican)? (IF “NOT SURE,” CODE AS “NOT VERY STRONG DEMOCRAT/REPUBLICAN.”) (IF “INDEPENDENT,” ASK:) Do you think of yourself as closer to the Republican Party, closer to the Democratic Party, or do you think of yourself as strictly independent? (IF “NOT SURE,” CODE AS “STRICTLY INDEPENDENT.”)
Strong Democrat ……………………… 20
Not very strong Democrat ………….. 15
Independent/lean Democrat……….. 8
Strictly Independent ………………….. 13
Independent/lean Republican……… 11
Not very strong Republican………… 12
Strong Republican……………………. 14
Other (VOL) ……………………………. 5
Not sure ……………………………….. 2


QF9 Do you have any children in pre-school, kindergarten to fifth grade, middle school, or high school currently living in your household? (IF YES, SPECIFY)(ACCEPT ALL THAT APPLY)
Total Yes, PreK-12th Grade 32
Yes, Pre-school……………………………………………… 10
Yes, K-5th grade …………………………………………….. 13
Yes, Middle School…………………………………………. 9
Yes, High school ……………………………………………. 10
Yes, have kids at home out of high school (VOL) .. 3
No, no kids ………………………………………………….. 61
Not sure ……………………………………………………… 4

Okay, let’s get this straight… The sample surveyed for this poll was not limited to likely voters or even registered voters. The poll oversampled Democrat primary voters over Republican primary voters by 5 points and strong Democrats over strong Republicans by 6 points. It sampled Obama voters over McCain voters by 10 points (even though Obama’s actual margin of victory over McCain was 7 points in the 2008 election). And a whopping 61 percent of the people surveyed don’t have any children? Where was this poll conducted, in a singles apartment building in Manhattan?

“Curiouser and curiouser,” said Alice…
