Zogby Survey: Governor Palin is 2010 Person of the Year

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 15, 2010

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

Governor Palin is Person of the Year for 2010 according to a Zogby International survey. Zogby.com reports:

Former Vice-Presidential candidate and Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin is the Person of the Year for 2010 according to a recent Zogby International survey. The poll, also names former President George W. Bush as the Person of the Decade (2000-2010).

Palin garners a 21% response with President Barack Obama claiming 16% for person of the year, and Glenn Beck tied with Julian Assange with 13%. None of the other seven people listed (General David Petraeus, Mark Zukerberg, Hillary Clinton, Conan O’Brien, Steve Jobs, LeBron James, Robert Gates) in the survey pull in more than 6%.

Democrats mostly choose President Obama (33%) and Assange (19%), while Republicans go for Palin (39%) and Beck (25%), and independents split their votes between Palin (17%), Beck (16%) and Assange (15%). President Obama only pulled 8% of the Independent vote.

Former President George W. Bush pulls in 44% of the respondents for Person of the Decade. President Obama comes in second with 20% and Osama Bin Laden garners 11%. None of the remaining six people listed (Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair, Saddam Hussein, Vladimir Putin, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-Il) in the survey receive more than 5%.

Second “Draft Sarah Palin” PAC Registers with FEC

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 15, 2010

In early 2009, the 2012 Draft Sarah Palin Committee became the first PAC supporting Governor Palin as a 2012 presidential candidate to register with the FEC.   Sam Stein at the Huffington Post wrote about their first meetup in a Denny’s in West Haven Connecticut.

History will show that the starting point of the grassroots movement to draft Sarah Palin as president began at a Denny’s Restaurant in West Haven, Connecticut.

On Tuesday evening, the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee — operating independent of any candidate or political organization — held its first meeting to gin up support for the Alaska Governor’s White House run.

The group, which is planning more events in the future, claims to be the first in the nation to fundraise on behalf of a theoretical Palin candidacy. That advocacy for the conservative Alaskan extends into firmly Democratic Connecticut underscores the political clout Palin earned among hard-core conservatives during the 2008 campaign.

More information about the 2012 Draft Sarah Palin Committee can be found here

This week, a second PAC supporting Governor Pain and her candidacy for President  filed with the FEC.  Stephanie Condon at CBS News reports:

A conservative operative is starting a new political fundraising group called “Draft Sarah Palin,” the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) reports

The group aims to get former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in the 2012 presidential race, as well as to raise public support for the controversial conservative figure. 

The treasurer of the “Draft Sarah Palin” group is Randy Goodwin, treasurer and co-founder of the Republican Majority Campaign political action committee.

“Sarah Palin is the single most effective leader in the Republican Party,” Goodwin told CRP. “When voters get a chance to know the real Sarah Palin — not the unfair stereotype that bears no resemblance to reality — we believe her support will increase to include independents, moderates and conservative Democrats.” 

The “Draft Sarah Palin” effort will reportedly rely largely on grassroots financial donations, which are expected to primarily come through its website DraftSarahPalin.us

The website is still under construction, but its “about” section today included an appeal to potential supporters: “Won’t you join DSP and go rogue on the RINOs with us? It is the RINOs, after all, who must be ejected from power in order to redirect the Republican Party to its conservative roots.” (RINOs refers to “Republicans in Name Only”)

There is more information about the new PAC here.

Greta Sets the Record Straight

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 15, 2010


Greta Van Susteren, who accompanied Rev. Franklin Graham and the Palins on the Samaritan’s Purse trip to Haiti, addresses some of the lies spun by the lamestream media in their news reports about the trip.

I am sure you have seen the ridiculous AP photo with caption accusing Gov Palin of bringing a hair stylist to Haiti (it was her daughter Bristol just touching her hair (the AP has since fixed it and maybe even apologized but the matter has gone viral over the internet)….Bristol was simply fixing her mother’s hair or something as they walked and as any daughter would…. there was NO hair stylist.

…and then their was the media suggestion that Fox had a “crew” or some sizable operation shooting video (it was just my OTR producer Justin and me shooting video and still pics).  It is funny since neither Justin nor I am a professional when it comes to shooting video or taking stills!

If you enjoyed the chatter about the suggested Fox “crew,” you might enjoy this picture below.  It shows how Justin and I just improvised.  We had no fancy tripods or specially equipped helicopters.  Justin and I just did with what we had.  In the pic you see a camera sitting on a camera bag (mine), the lens supported by a water bottle (with cholera, you make sure to carry fresh water of your own) and the camera simply turned on shooting (recording) video in a helicopter….nothing fancy, just Justin and me …improvising.  We will show you the video soon.

Exclusive Videos: Franklin Graham & Sarah Palin Visit Haiti

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 15, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

These two videos, exclusively from Samaritan’s Purse, highlight the effort being done to help Haitians survive the effects, not only from the earthquake that happened nearly a year ago, but from a deadly outbreak of cholera.

The conditions in the island nation are dire. Haitians lack the most basic necessities of life. The conditions are worsened by political unrest and widespread violence.

Samaritan’s Purse is an organization that puts the money folks donate to good use. You can send money knowing it goes to help those in need.

We know money is tight, but if you have some money set aside for charity, and are looking for the best use of those dollars, we recommend Samaritan’s Purse and their efforts in Haiti. You can donate by going to Samaritan’s Purse’s website and choosing “Haiti.”

At this time of hope and charity, please help as much as you can by sending a donation, be it large or small, to Samaritan’s Purse.

Reporting On Sarah Palin In Haiti: The Corrupt Media Has Finally Jumped the Shark

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 15, 2010

Jumping the shark is an idiom used to denote the point in a television program’s history where the plot spins off into absurd storylines or unlikely characterizations. These changes were often the result of efforts to revive interest in a show whose audience had begun to decline.

By Gary P Jackson

From 1974 thru 1984 one of the most popular shows on television was Happy Days, a nostalgic look at the 1950s that starred Henry Winkler and Ron Howard, along with a strong supporting cast. Happy Days was one of those shows that everyone watched and pretty much everyone enjoyed. It was one of the rare shows that was so good it spawned a spin-off series using beloved characters from the show that was also a major hit.

Cindy Williams and Penny Marshall would star in another wildly popular show called Laverne and Shirley.

Happy Days is the kind of show that really becomes part of the culture, and can run pretty much forever in syndication. Sadly, the show ran into a brick wall and destroyed the integrity of the series. What radio personality Jon Hein described as “A defining moment when you know that your favorite television program has reached its peak. That instant that you know from now on…it’s all downhill.

In 1977 as part of a three episode opening, the show’s central characters visit Los Angeles. Henry Winkler’s character, “Fonzie,” has his bravery challenged. In what turned out to be better on paper than on TV, the script called for “The Fonz” to jump a captive shark. So here’s one of the most popular characters on TV, dressed in swimming trunks, and wearing his trademark black leather jacket, on a pair of water skis. It was as ridiculous as it sounds.

The show continued for six more seasons, but it was never the same after that. The writers had gone from believable situations to the ridiculous, and it effected the viewer’s perception of the show.

So significant was this to our culture, “jumping the shark” has become almost synonymous for failure. For doing something so ridiculous it destroys the credibility of everything one does going forward.

This leads us to 2010 and the corrupt lamestream media’s reporting on Sarah Palin. Now it’s been dishonest to the point of ridiculousness and absurdity for quite some time now, but I think Sarah’s trip to Haiti with Reverend Franklin Graham and Greta Van Susteren, on behalf of Samaritan’s Purse, is the final straw. The true “jump the shark” moment.

As usual the media got pretty much everything wrong in it’s reporting. In other words, lied. I use the word lie, because these so-called “journalists” are old hats at this, and know full well how these trips work. They made a choice to lie to their readers. A willful, knowing, and deliberate choice.

Stacy Drake wrote a hard hitting piece calling out the Associate Press’ Jonathan Katz for his completely dishonest reporting. You should read it here.

Stacy points out a serious problem. The media is corrupt and lies outright  to create the narrative they want you to believe, rather than the truth. While this is dangerous to the Republic and a direct assault on Freedom and Liberty, it’s not what you could call a “jump the shark” moment. No, that’s what we call “business as usual.

The true “jump the shark” moment would come from this: The media attempts to destroy Sarah’s street cred as an independent, hard working, everywoman constantly. They claim she can’t really shoot, though we watch her shoot quite well during her 8-part travelogue, Sarah Palin’s Alaska. They claim she can’t fish, even though we see her and her family pull in salmon by the hundreds, as well as watch her help haul in ginormous halibut on the open seas.

When all else fails, they go for the Diva angle. That’s easy for mindless liberals to understand. Of course, that theory has been blown all to hell by Sarah Palin’s Alaska as well. We’ve seen Sarah with no make-up, covered in fish slime and guts. Sweating from working out, and from climbing the face of a glacier. Of course, we’ve seen her dressed up as well, just as you would any other woman in real life.

Anyhow, since it’s easy, and hack “journalists” are lazy ….

This brings us to the trip to Haiti and the jumping of the shark.

As pointed out above, one of the folks who went on this trip was Greta Van Sustern. She has traveled with Franklin Graham before on these relief missions. She does a good job of reporting. Anyhow, bless her heart, Greta loves all things techie, and really loves blogging. She always posts photos when she is out and about. In the photo below you’ll notice Sarah and Todd, and you’ll see Bristol, second from the right, with a pony tail and scarf:

Now fast forward a bit.

The far left hate site, Palingates, came up with a photo of Sarah, posted it and of course sent it, and their latest conspiracy theory, around to their enablers in the so-called “straight” media. If you aren’t familiar with these loons, once based in France, now we believe in  Germany, they are insane Palin haters. And I DO mean insane! They are the ones who started the lie that Sarah’s son Trig is really Bristol’s baby, a lie they continue to peddle to this day. [and many media outlets give credence to]

This photo, and the corresponding lie, was picked up by the notoriously vile Huffington Post. HuffPo of course has strong ties with anti-Palin bloggers including those hand picked by Obama’s now Chief of Staff, Pete Rouse. They give space to all, and the so-called “respectable media” picks it up like it’s the gospel truth.

One would think HuffPo would be more interested in getting it’s own house in order rather than pushing nonsense on the American people. Just a few days ago, noted Palin hating Huffpo blogger, and Columbia professor, David Epstein was busted for having a long term incestuous relationship with his daughter. This is sick to say the least, but sadly typical of the “quality” of writers allowed to work for HuffPo, so long as they trash Sarah Palin. Stacy McCain has all of the sordid details on this sick bastard, Epstein, here.

The photo in question? Look for yourself.

Now bear in mind, Palingates is pushing the idea that Sarah, the Diva that she is, had a full staff with her, including a “hairdresser” to keep her looking good. They somehow divined this knowledge from studying this single photograph, and most likely some heavy narcotics intake. Without batting an eye, HuffPo and others, like the UK’s Daily Mail used this lunacy to paint Sarah as someone who cares more about how she looks in front of the cameras than the poor people of Haiti and their suffering.

Now it should worry the hell out of all Americans that media worldwide use sources like Palingates, a bunch of absolute loons that make Jesse Ventura and Alex Jones look credible, as “trusted sources.”

Looking at the photo what we REALLY see is Sarah standing there while her “hairdresser,” daughter Bristol, fixes something that is awry. We see mothers do this all of the time to their daughters when something like a hairpin comes lose, and well, obviously daughters return the favor. This doesn’t mean anyone is vain, it just means most folks want to look groomed and nice, and their loved ones want that as well.

The true jump the shark moment here is the fact the media absolutely knew this was Bristol, but chose to call her “Sarah’s hairdresser” and characterized what is little more that having some stray hairs put in their place, to “having her hair done.”

This is where the plot spins off into “absurd storylines or unlikely characterizations.” It proves the media is so desperate that it will actually publish photos showing one thing, and one group of people, and yet tell you something totally different is happening, and other people, not those in the photo are actually there. It would be hilarious, if it wasn’t so dangerous.

This sort of thing is destroying the Republic. A free nation cannot survive and be successful without a free and honest press. Something that is increasingly hard to find in the 21st century. The media does this with more people and more situations than Sarah Palin and her activities, of course. It’s just their lies are so blatant, and easily debunked, that it shows the desperation among the left to create a false reality about what is really happening in America.

For Sarah’s part, her message from Haiti is clear. She urges Americans to not forget Haiti. Damned shame the Palin hating progressives can’t get on board with that message, instead of the lunacy they spout.

For the corrupt media, and the progressive movement, from now on…it’s all downhill. They have truly jumped the shark.
