RNC Chair Steele Challenged By Anuzis.Let Anuzis Prove He’s Not A Front For The “Stop Palin” Old Guard.

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on November 13, 2010

The first challenger for Michael Steele’s position as Chairman of the RNC has surfaced, Saul Anuzis of Michigan, a previous candidate for the role who was defeated in 2008.

In his statement of intent Anuzis says, inter alia, “Chairman Steele’s record speaks… for itself.” Yes it does and is proven as he goes on to congratulate Republican candidates on the “Historic victory we achieved on election day.” He does not give the credit to Steele for that historic victory but as Hindenburg said when asked who was responsible for a great victory achieved over the Russians, Ludendorff or himself “I don’t know who was responsible for the victory, but I do know who would have been charged with the loss.”

Anuzis finds fault with Steele-apparently the victory in 61+ congressional seats was not good enough, the GOP should have won the senate too which loss describes to a lack of funding and being beaten by the Dem’s GOTV capacity.

Apparently the GOP lost in “Countless Congressional and legislative districts” for this reason.”Countless”? The Republican tide smashed through Dem seats which had been held for years and which were deemed untakeable.This sort of hyperbole is unacceptable as it is a ridiculous statement unfitting to one seeking such an important office.

The other aspect that Anuzis hints at is the high profile of Steele. “We will only win if the Chairman of the RNC steps out of the limelight” and he goes on to ascribe his role as a “nuts and bolts” Chairman.In reality this old guard, old fashioned image is totally out of touch with a hugely important development in the fortunes of the GOP, the influx of Black (32 of whom stood for the GOP) and Hispanic voters and candidates.

“These are not just people pulled out of the hole,” said Timothy F. Johnson, chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, a black conservative group. That is “the nice thing about being on this side of history,” he said. He added that the candidates might be helped by the presence of Michael Steele, the chairman of the Republican National Committee who is black and ran for the Senate himself in 2006.

But even with that invigorating infusion of an aspect that has been missing from the GOP “since reconstruction” and the victory of high profile Black congressional candidates Allen West in Florida and Tim Scott in South Carolina there is a danger. The attachment is tender, and perhaps tenuous, as reflected in the comment by high profile Black Republican Aprill Shines that although the GOP has embraced many more Blacks and membership is up “Though the Republican party has seen growth of black membership rise from 5 to 15% it does not seem to be indicative of accepting black leadership to correlate with black votes”.( NB Aprill Shines Link does not connect.Google Aprill Shines for link to this important Examiner article)

How would the removal of the first high profile Black to hold executive office in the GOP help to remove the perception that, although Blacks are welcome to fetch water they are not welcome to organize the water gang, even if one of their number has led the party to an almost unprecedented victory?

How would the replacement by a bland “nuts and bolts” Chairman counter the, guaranteed to be used over and over,'”racist” hit job by radical leftist Dem’s and their enablers in the liberal media. “The real opposition to Obama is based on racism not matter how the Republicans try and cover it up-just look how quickly they dumped Steele once he had served their purpose as a token counter weight to President Obama”. Nothing could be surer than that is exactly what they would do and say.

According to commentators the campaign against Steele is being led by the GOP old guard, especially Karl Rove. Rove is perceived as ultra-establishment and no friend of Palin’s. If the Beltway Boys plan is to remove Steele, a noted Palin and Tea Party friendly Chairman, as a way to stop Palin getting the nomination, it will be a costly and Pyrrhic victory. Not only could it lead to the Tea Party creating a third party for 2012 which would of course ensure the crushing defeat of the GOP, but it could seriously erode the nascent entry of Blacks back into the party of Lincoln.

For Anuzis, and any further challengers to Steele, they must state how they would deal with this potentially catastrophic loss of both Blacks and Tea Partiers. They would also have to prove that they are not in anyone’s pocket. Anuzis says ” I will not be taking sides in the presidential primary” he and other contenders should prove it by categorically disassociating themselves with the anti-Steele, stop Palin cabal which is being described as led by Rove.

Rules for Sarah Palin’s Book Signing in Des Moines, IA

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on November 13, 2010

I had the assistant manager at Borders give me a call with some additional information about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s book signing Saturday, November 27, 2010 at 6:00p – 9:00p for America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag at Borders Bookstore in West Des Moines, IA (4100 University Ave., Ste.115).

  • She will be only signing America By Heart, not other memorabilia will be allowed.
  • Books must be purchased at the West Des Moines Borders and you must provide proof of purchase.
  • There will be a limited number of wristbands (he didn’t say when they’ll start giving those out). Only one wristband per person, and only two books per person. During the Going Rogue tour they typically gave out anywhere between 500-1000 wristbands.
  • No cameras, phones with a camera, recording devices, video cameras, etc. will be allowed. Please leave those in your car or at the security check point.
  • A wristband will guarantee your place in line, but it will not guarantee that you will get to meet Governor Palin (circumstances may not permit everyone in line to be able to get through).

Sarah Palin Advocates for Civic Education

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on November 13, 2010

Governor Sarah Palin gave a speech last week at Plumstead Christian School in Plumsteadville, PA that wasn’t highly publicized or talked about.  I particularly enjoyed her plug for school choice and parental sovereignty in education.  She also spoke about the important role that Christian schools play educating students about our nation’s founding, our Constitution’s foundation in Natural Law and American exceptionalism.

Good stuff, I encourage you to watch the whole thing.

Sarah Palin Welcomes and Challenges Newly Elected Republican Congressmen

An Open Letter to Republican Freshmen Members of Congress

by Sarah Palin on Saturday, November 13, 2010 at 12:19am

Welcome to all Republican Freshmen and congratulations! 

Congratulations to all of you for your contribution to this historic election, and for the contributions I am certain you will make to our country in the next two years. Your victory was hard fought, and the success belongs entirely to you and the staff and volunteers who spent countless hours working for this chance to put government back on the side of the people. Now you will come to Washington to serve your nation and leave your mark on history by reining in government spending, preserving our freedoms at home, and restoring America’s leadership abroad. Some of you have asked for my thoughts on how best to proceed in the weeks and months ahead and how best to advance an agenda that can move our country forward. I have a simple answer: stick to the principles that propelled your campaigns. When you take your oath to support and defend our Constitution and to faithfully discharge the duties of your office, remember that present and future generations of “We the People” are counting on you to stand by that oath. Never forget the people who sent you to Washington. Never forget the trust they placed in you to do the right thing. 

The task before you is daunting because so much damage has been done in the last two years, but I believe you have the chance to achieve great things. 

Republicans campaigned on a promise to rein in out-of-control government spending and to repeal and replace the massive, burdensome, and unwanted health care law President Obama and the Democrat Congress passed earlier this year in defiance of the will of the majority of the American people. These are promises that you must keep. Obamacare is a job-killer, a regulatory nightmare, and an enormous unfunded mandate. The American people don’t want it and we can’t afford it. We ask, with all due respect, that you remember your job will be to work to replace this legislation with real reform that relies on free market principles and patient-centered policies. The first step is, of course, to defund Obamacare. 

You’ve also got to be deadly serious about cutting the deficit. Despite what some would like us to believe, tax cuts didn’t get us into the mess we’re in. Government spending did. Tough decisions need to be made about reducing government spending. The longer we put them off, the worse it will get. We need to start by cutting non-essential spending. That includes stopping earmarks (because abuse of the earmark process created the “gateway-drug” that allowed backroom deals and bloated budgets), canceling all further spending on the failed Stimulus program, and rolling back non-discretionary spending to 2008 levels. You can do more, but this would be a good start. 

In order to avert a fiscal disaster, we will also need to check the growth of spending on our entitlement programs. That will be a huge challenge, but it must be confronted head on. We must do it in a humane way that honors the government’s current commitments to our fellow Americans while also keeping faith with future generations. We cannot rob from our children and grandchildren’s tomorrow to pay for our unchecked spending today. Beyond that, we need to reform the way Congress conducts business in order to make it procedurally easier to cut spending than to increase it. We need to encourage zero-based budgeting practices in D.C. like the kind fiscally conservative mayors and governors utilize to balance their budgets and reduce unnecessary spending. 

There in the insulated and isolated Beltway you will be far removed from the economic pain felt by so many Americans who are out of work. Please remember that if we want real job growth, we must create a stable investment climate by ending the tidal wave of overly burdensome regulations coming out of Washington. Businesses need certainty – and freedom that incentivizes competition – to grow and expand our workforce. 

The last thing our small businesses need is tax hikes. It falls to the current Democrat-controlled Congress to decide on the future of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts. If it does not permanently renew all of them, you should move quickly to do so in the new Congress. It would remove from households and businesses the threat of a possible $3.8 trillion tax hike hitting all Americans at the worst possible moment, with our economy struggling to recover from a deep recession! You must continue to remind Democrats that the people they are dismissing as “rich” are the small business owners who create up to 70% of all jobs in this country! 

Another issue of vital importance is border security. Americans expect our leadership in Washington to act now to secure our borders. Don’t fall for the claims of those who suggest that we can’t secure our borders until we simultaneously deal with the illegal immigrants already here. Let’s deal with securing the border first. That alone is a huge challenge that has been ignored for far too long. 

On foreign policy and national security, I urge you to stick to our principles: strong defense, free trade, nurturing allies, and steadfast opposition to America’s enemies.  We are the most powerful country on earth and the world is better off because of it.  Our president does not seem to understand this. If we withdraw from the world, the world will become a much more dangerous place. You must push President Obama to finish the job right in Iraq and get the job done in Afghanistan, otherwise we who are war-weary will forever question why America’s finest are sent overseas to make the ultimate sacrifice with no clear commitment to victory from those who send them. You should be prepared to stand with the President against Iran’s nuclear aspirations using whatever means necessary to ensure the mullahs in Tehran do not get their hands on nuclear weapons. And you can stand with the Iranian people who oppose the tyrannical rule of the clerics and concretely support their efforts to win their freedom – even if the President does not. 

You need to say no to cutting the necessities in our defense budget when we are engaged in two wars and face so many threats – from Islamic extremists to a nuclear Iran to a rising China. As Ronald Reagan said, “We will always be prepared, so we may always be free.” You will also have the opportunity to push job-creating free trade agreements with allies like Colombia and South Korea. You can stand with allies like Israel, not criticize them. You can let the President know what you believe – Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, not a settlement. And for those of you joining the United States Senate, don’t listen to desperate politically-motivated arguments about the need for hasty consideration of the “New START” treaty.  Insist on your right to patient and careful deliberation of New START to address very real concerns about verification, missile defense, and modernization of our nuclear infrastructure. No New START in the lame duck! 

You can stand against misguided proposals to try dangerous, evil terrorists in the US; precipitously close the Guantanamo prison; and a return to the failed policies of the past in treating the war on terror as a law enforcement problem. Finally, you have a platform to express the support of the American people for all those around the world seeking their freedom that God has bestowed within all mankind’s being – from Burma and Egypt to Russia and Venezuela – because the spread of liberty increases our own security. You, freshmen lawmakers, can and will be powerful voices in support of foreign policies that protect our interests and promote our values! Thank you for being willing to fight for our values and our freedom! 

In all this, you should extend a hand to President Obama and Democrats in Congress. After this election, they may finally be prepared to work with Republicans on some of these issues for the good of the country. And if not, we will all be looking forward to 2012. 

Remember that some in the media will love you when you stray from the time-tested truths that built America into the most exceptional nation on earth. When the Left in the media pat you on the back, quickly reassess where you are and readjust, for the liberals’ praise is a warning bell you must heed. Trust me on that. 

I and most Americans are so excited for you. Working together, we have every right to be optimistic about our future. We can be hopeful because real hope lies in the ingenuity, generosity, and boundless courage of the everyday Americans who make our country exceptional. These are the men and women who sent you to Washington. May your work and leadership honor their faith in you. 

With sincere congratulations and a big Alaskan heart, 

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin: Follow Me There! (To Alaska!)

Posted by Dr. Fay on November 13, 2010

From Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

Sarah Palin

Follow Me There! (To Alaska!)

by Sarah Palin on Friday, November 12, 2010 at 8:28pm

“They’re going to criticize me no matter what I do, so I might as well dance.” – Bristol Palin

Race car great Mario Andretti once said, “If everything’s under control then you’re going too slow.” In Alaska, we have two speeds in the summertime: fast and faster – that’s because Alaskan summers are so short and sweet. We always try to cram it all in before the leaves change and snow flies again. Seasons change so quickly up here that we’re full-speed ahead to capture every minute under the Midnight Sun doing what we love to do in the great outdoors.

Last summer my family documented our travels through Alaska so that the rest of America could see and experience our country’s young, independent, resource-rich Last Frontier.

From sliming salmon together at our family’s commercial fishing sites on the world’s largest salmon spawning grounds in Bristol Bay, to white water rafting in the wilds, searching for gold, climbing mountains, hunting wild game near rich oil fields, and watching mama bears protecting their cubs a mere stone’s throw away from my own, Alaska will be highlighted in a spectacular way in this eight-week TLC series called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” We’ll show you what inspires and motivates us: the grandeur of God’s creation, the satisfaction of a good day’s hard work, the rugged pioneering spirit that carves a life out of the wilderness and makes a living on the waters, the wisdom and traditions of our Alaska Natives, and the wealth of our natural resources which allows us to support ourselves and contribute to America’s security.

So, while traveling by bush planes, dog sleds, four-wheelers, trucks, and boom boats across the vast expanses of America’s largest state, my family documented Alaska to share it with other American families.

No doubt critics who seem to live to criticize will follow suit with this project. So be it. Todd and I are showing people our home state which we love, and we wanted to create the sort of family-friendly, uplifting, educational television that we like to watch with our kids. We made something that people could watch as a family, have fun discussing the project’s content, and maybe then decide that they want to head up to the Last Frontier and see the epic 49th state for themselves.

Americans are hungry for decent entertainment that doesn’t offend our sensibilities or insult our intelligence. So many parents are upset about all of the negative things on television. We’re often told to just turn off the TV, but let’s face it: turning it off doesn’t really shut it off. You can’t block out the world. Instead of turning the TV off, families usually end up making the most of what’s on – even if the message is anything but positive. The only real solution is to offer positive alternatives. That’s what we have done here. It’s my hope that these eight episodes will be just such a positive offering, and a tribute to Alaska, and a reminder of America’s pioneering spirit.

Sure, there will be the usual critics who still won’t understand why we would document the natural resources and uniqueness of the Last Frontier, though in doing this I am keeping my promise to fellow Alaskans that I would do all I could to support and promote Alaska. My answer to those naysayers is the reminder my daughter Bristol offered when she was blessed with the opportunity to participate on “Dancing with the Stars.” I cautioned Bristol about all the criticism she’d no doubt encounter. Bristol told me, “Mom, they’re going to criticize me no matter what I do, so I might as well dance!” Yes, they’ll criticize us no matter what, so I might as well climb and fly and trek and build and hunt and fish and share with you the awe-inspiring beauty of Alaska…and because I wanted my family along for the ride, I want your family to come along, too. Follow me there!

Please tune in Sunday at 9:00 pm (8:00 pm central). The show’s opening lyrics sing the invitation: “Come on and follow me there…to my sanctuary! Follow me there!”

Sarah Palin: Media in Tizzy Over $25 Error in SarahPAC Report

The Major $25 News Story

.by Sarah Palin on Friday, November 12, 2010 at 7:13pm.

With all that is happening in the world I can’t believe the media is in a tizzy because SarahPAC’s last filing was off by a total of $25. Our treasurer and attorney report that our vendor who handles these calculations is re-looking at the figures to find out where the $25 glitch is in their system. Everything else in today’s very rudimentary and quite ordinary FEC inquiry letter has been answered. If anyone would care to look at other PACs, they’ll discover that they get these sorts of letter too and many of them much more frequently than SarahPAC. But, golly, sure glad the LSM (including KTUU in Anchorage) is on top of this “controversy”!

“America By Heart” Book Tour

by Sarah Palin on Friday, November 12, 2010 at 10:35am

I’m looking forward to hitting the road again for the release of my new book “America By Heart.” The book is a collection of essays and reflections about our exceptional country. It discusses the ideals we must pass on to the next generation to ensure that we remain, in the words of Reagan, “the shining city on a hill,” and in the words of Lincoln, “the last best hope of earth.” 

Below are dates, times, and locations for the tour. Please feel free to contact each venue for more information. My family will be joining me along the way, and they look forward to meeting you as much as I do. We’ll try to add some more stops if time allows. And, of course, we’ll wrap up the whole tour in Alaska just as we did last time.  

We can’t wait to see you soon!

Governor Palin to Kathleen Parker: I’m Still Standing

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 13, 2010

By Adrienne Ross –

Kathleen Parker fancied herself most clever as she bragged about leading the charge to destroy Governor Palin. In an interview with John Ziegler, she made the assertion that she was not only a willing participant, but the spearheader of “the assassination of Sarah Palin.”

Apparently, while spending her time focusing on how to get rid of the Governor–something she obviously failed miserably at accomplishing–she was “duped” by then-candidate Obama, although, for some reason, she was not as quick to admit to this particular point.

Via NewsBusters, here’s the Parker Spitzer exchange between Ziegler and Parker:

JOHN ZIEGLER: So you didn’t buy into the Obama moderation myth?


ZIEGLER: You were duped by the media —

PARKER: I was one of those people who thought this is a guy who is talking about not a red, not a blue America, and who’s going to bring the country together.

ZIEGLER: So you were duped.

PARKER: I was at that 2004 Democratic convention.

ZIEGER: Were you duped?

PARKER: No, I’m not going to say I was duped, I’m saying —

ZIEGLER: So you stand by that.

PARKER: Listen to you: I’m the interviewer here. [Nervous laughter] This is fun; this is fun. But I wrote critical things of him, and I still write critical things of him.

ZIEGLER: You endorsed him. You endorsed him before the election. And you took pride —

PARKER: I did not endorse. I did not endorse.

ZIEGLER: You took part in the targeting of Sarah Palin. You essentially took part in the assassination of Sarah Palin 1.0. That person is dead; she doesn’t exist any more.

PARKER: No, no, no. Actually, I did not take part in it: I led it. Let’s be clear. Let’s get our facts straight.

Read this interview here.

While Kathleen Parker feels oddly proud of herself for her leadership role in what she perceives to be the taking down of Governor Palin–while she celebrates herself–she falls short, it seems, of recognizing or admitting that she failed miserably in her so-called leadership role. No one has killed Governor Palin. No one has destroyed her message, either. In fact, she is standing taller and has emerged stronger since the pitiful attempts to cut off and assassinate her character, her career, and her–dare I say–cajones.

The Governor spoke to this yesterday via Twitter.

Parker: appreciate your admittance. Now, I’m still standing;Standing by family, faith & flag. Who do u stand by today?

It’s this type of response from Governor Palin that drives both the Left and the Right crazy. She is still standing. None of the attempts to destroy her–no matter how coordinated and committed–have yielded any rewards. She is not only still standing; she’s moving forward and shaping the current political conversation in America. What drives people even crazier is the fact that she can confront these self-professed opponents, as she did yesterday, and point out that they are utter failures. How odd it is that Kathleen Parker would even admit to something that shows her to be such a complete loser in this effort.

It’ll take more than a Kathleen Parker, or a lamestream media, to assassinate Governor Palin. She knows it–and she reminds them of it. They know it, too. And this is precisely why they hate her.

Instead of fighting a losing battle, perhaps at some point these haters will come to realize the wisdom in the old saying, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.”

* Speaking of “family, faith & flag” that the Governor refers to in her tweet, be sure to order her book by the same name and join her at one of her book tour stops.
