Wasilla Bible Church arson anniversary passes with little notice

Posted by joshpainter on December 18, 2010

– by Josh Painter

Early this week the second anniversary of the intentional torching of the church Gov. Palin’s family attends passed with little or no notice by the lamestream media, which never gave the chilling crime much attention to begin with.

On the evening of December 12, 2008, the church was damaged by a fire which caused an estimated $1 million damage to the church building. An investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives several days later confirmed that the burning was a case of arson, as accelerants were found in a number of locations on the church’s exterior, including around entrances and exits. Several people were inside the structure at the time, but all were able to escape the fire unharmed.

Though several federal, state and local agencies were involved in the investigation, no arrests have been made, nor have any solid leads been announced. The media reported the fire and the subsequent determination that arson was involved, but quickly lost interest in the story.

If, God forbid, it had been a church the Obamas attended that had deliberately been torched with no arrests or leads produced in even the first few weeks (let alone two whole years), the media would be screaming in outrage that a “hate crime” was being allowed to go unpunished. The press would have demanded the scalps of the authorities who failed to solve the crime and punish those responsible.

Interestingly, two years after the arson, the blood lust on the left continues while the media looks the other way. On the website of Salon magazine, a letter which calls for Sarah Palin to be electrocuted by a cattle prod wielded by convicted dog abuser Michael Vick is prominently displayed. Written by someone using the name “Owen Meany IV,” the letter justifies attempted murder with the sentence:

“Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!”

This is not the first time that the extreme left has called for physical harm to be inflicted on the former Alaska governor, up to and including the crime of murder. A number of death threats have also been made against Sarah Palin and her family over the past two years.

Ironically, the left has claimed, without producing a shred of real evidence, that Gov. Palin “incited violence” in her stump speeches as a candidate for vice president in the 2008 campaign. As is always the case, upon close examination, it is the left which is doing exactly that which it claims its enemies are doing.

Again, the “tolerant” and “compassionate” left reveals its true nature. Please pray to the good Lord to continue to protect Sarah Palin and her family from all harm and evil.

ADN Posts Pics of Governor Palin’s Anchorage Book Signing

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 18, 2010

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

Today Governor Palin did what has been announced as the last book signing for her new book, America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag. As she did with Going Rogue, she saved her favorite for last, ending the tour in her beloved state of Alaska. Today’s book signing was in Anchorage.

The ADN has posted some pictures. You can view their photo gallery here.

Media/Anti-Palin Forces Hail Distorted Polling

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on December 18, 2010

In a previous analysis of the gross distortions in the television network polling on Sarah Palin, I pointed out how, uniquely, the NBC and CBS polls have a gross level of “Undecided” and in NBC’s case (alone of all pollsters”) a “Neutral” category.

The levels of Undecided/Neutral in the latest polls are 22% with NBC and, ridiculously, 29% with CBS.

The average of “Undecided ” in the five latest polls from other polling outfits is 8.8%. The average of “Favorable” is 38.4%. This figure matches the putative Palin versus Obama poll which has Obama at 54% and Palin at 39%.

It is instructive to remember that, in election year, Ford was 25% behind Carter, and if a few thousand votes had switched here and there in the general election, Ford would have won.

Thus for CBS to have Palin’s “Favorables at 22% (16% below the average of the five latest polls) and NBC to have them at 28% shows a distortion unseen in polling of any other candidate to date.

In contrast, and at this stage these are the only sort of polls that really have any bearing on the immediate situation – “Palin leads GOP polls in Wisconsin and Ohio“.

‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska’ Episode 6: ATV-Riding, White-Water Rafting, Dog Sledding, Gold-Panning, and More!

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 18, 2010

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The blogs on SPAlaska.com are abuzz with news and information related to tomorrow’s episode of  “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”   Governor Palin also issued an invitation on Facebook earlier today to watch the show.   Here are some excerpts from the blogs.

On FishHook Road, Danielle Johnsen writes:

In tomorrow’s episode (9/8c on TLC), it will be a non-stop action packed adventure on Sarah Palin’s Alaska. Sarah and Piper explore Alaska in ways we haven’t seen yet. Kicking up dirt on the ATV, getting smacked around while water rafting and hanging out with pups getting their sled on are all things to look forward to. But before we watch, let’s learn just a bit more about each activity.

The Palins head to the Matanuska Glacier with Sarah’s mom, dad, brother and family to do some white water rafting in the river there. Just what is white water rafting? It’s rafting in an inflatable raft across ‘whitewaters,’ which is made in a rapid when a river’s gradient increases enough go create turbulence and currents making the water white.

[…]

We will get to see Sarah and Piper bond while they hit up the ATVs with Todd to get out in Alaska and kick up some dirt. First on the scene in the 1970’s an ATV, all-terrain vehicle, is hugely popular in areas that are off-road and hard to maneuver around otherwise. They are usually used as recreational activities, and tons of families use them to get out and have fun. Certain ATVs, like the ones with the cage enclosures like the Palins use are much safer for children to use.

[…]

And lastly, we get the highest quotient of cute Sarah Palin’s Alaska has seen yet with an overflowing amount of PUPPIES. During another awesome mom and daughter bonding adventure, Sarah and Piper visit the sled dog camps of two friends. A major part of Alaskan culture, dog sledding has a team of dogs pulling a sled to travel over ice and through snow, for either profit or personal use. Usually done with Alaskan Malamutes and Siberian Huskies, each dog has a specific role in team and begin their training as early as a few months old. It’s really interesting to learn more about the sport through trainers who have dedicated their lives to it, and seem to honestly love the dogs they raise.

On Directors Cut, Adam Littman writes:

First off are the Talkeetna Mountains. Like many areas we’ve seen so far during the show, the Talkeetna Mountains have plenty of options for outdoor activities. There’s hiking and camping areas, as well as places to go whitewater rafting. There are also places to go snowmobiling and berry picking.

While most people think of the Alaska gold rush taking place in areas like Nome and Fairbanks, gold was discovered before that in south Alaska in the Talkeetna Mountains. Now that area is known as the Independence Mine State Historical Park, which can be toured.

Next up is the Matanuska River, which partially flows through the Talkeetna. This is a somewhat popular river for rafting (hint hint). In the summer, temperatures in the Matanuska reach as high as in the 60s and drop down to somewhere in the 40s at night. In the winter, temperatures with the sun out go as high as the 10s while dropping down -10s when the sun goes down. The area also gets very little rain, with the most rain coming in July and the least coming in April. One wonders what then happens to the May flowers?

There is also the Matanuska Glacier, which the Palins visit on Sunday’s episode. This is an area people go to to climb, and the glacier is about 27 miles long. The lower portion is kind of flat and easily climbable.

Speaking of glaciers, the Palins also visit the Punchbowl Glacier in this week’s episode. The Punchbowl Glacier, 3,200 feet above sea level, is a vast snow-covered area where dogs are trained to pull dog sleds. It’s a popular destination for those looking to take a day tour that incorporates some dog sledding.

The Palins also visit Big Lake, a town about 13 miles southwest of Wasilla, and was originally settled by Native Americans. This is also an area where people do some dogsledding. Other activities at Big Lake include water- and jet-skiing, boating, ice fishing and others.

One other place we will see Sunday is Peggy’s, a diner in Anchorage that’s well-known for their pies. The full name of the restaurant is actually Peggy’s Airport Cafe, which opened in the 1940s by Margaret “Peggy” Lott, who died in 2006. Peggy’s is now run by  Nancy.

At Not Taking Sides, Scott Henderson writes:

It’s going to be quite an adventure tomorrow night on the new episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska (9/8c on TLC). Here at Not Taking Sides, we will be keeping a very close eye on the delicious pies served at Peggy’s Airport Cafe and the gosh darn cute puppies playing around at the training camps of two different Idiatrod champions.

Here is a description of the upcoming Talk Back Live for the upcoming episode:

This week on Talk Back Live we’re talking about some of the best of what Alaska has to offer: dog mushing, snow mobile racing, rafting and pies. We’ll be joined by Chas St. George, Director of Public Relations for the Iditarod and Kevin Kastner the Iron Dog Executive Director. We’ll also hear from Sarah’s dad, Chuck Heath, Sr. and Jeff Schultz who is the official photographer of the Iditarod. And last, but certainly not least, we’ll be talking about Peggy’s pies which are some of the best in Alaska.

Broadsheet issues a challenge for regular viewers:

You already know that Sarah Palin’s Alaska airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on TLC. But do your friends know? This week here at SPAlaska.com, we’re issuing a challenge to all our readers: tell ten of your friends about Sarah Palin’s Alaska. Don’t have ten friends? That’s fine, neither do I. Tell ten strangers!

As a kind of reward in advance for you telling your ten, here’s a clip [above] of this Sunday’s episode of the show. In it, Sarah and her family ride some ATV’s to visit a family friend on their way to go panning for gold!

“Sarah Palin’s Alaska” is definitely excellent TV, packed with fun and adventure and magnificent sights.  If you haven’t watched it already, you have a treat in store.  Regular viewers:  invite others to watch, and let’s make each week’s ratings better than the last!

Sarah Palin: Quads, Bogs, and Bones

Governor Palin’s Facebook Note:

Sarah Palin

Quads, Bogs, and Bones

by Sarah Palin on Friday, December 17, 2010 at 5:17pm

Life is so unpredictable, and like my dad always says, it’s “too short to be stuck in a rut!” One way to get out of a rut is to find inspiration in the great outdoors. Activity and fresh air are energizing! Sunday at 9pm ET/8c on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” we show you a few things that we find more fulfilling than staying indoors and sitting on the couch.  

Plato said, “You learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” So join us as we learn more about each other and what God’s creation has to offer, as we pack up the RV to go dog mushing, white water rafting, four-wheeling, and fossil hunting where we find evidence of ancient sea life on the high hilltops of the Last Frontier! Come join us as we experience more of Alaska’s amazing sights and meet a few more of our friends, including a very special friend we visit in this episode who passed on recently. This episode is dedicated to our old friend “Bones.” You can watch a preview of it here.  

My early New Year’s wish for all is that inspiration and fulfillment will be yours in 2011. Remember that one way to find that is to get outdoors.

Sarah Palin: Omnibus Defeat Is a Victory for Reality

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 18, 2010

Governor Palin’s Op-Ed on National Review Online in The Corner:

 

Omnibus Defeat Is a Victory for Reality

By Sarah Palin                                              December 17, 2010 1:24 P.M.

I’m glad the Senate came to its senses and killed the omnibus spending monstrosity. That outrageous trillion-dollar pork buffet was an outright slap in the face to the American public’s expressed wishes in the last election. It was as if Congress was earning its historically low 13 percent approval rating before our very eyes. I applaud senators like Jim DeMint, John McCain, and others who fought this and stopped it.

However, the very fact that some lawmakers on Capitol Hill thought such reckless spending was even remotely acceptable is disturbing. We’re facing trillion-dollar deficits and a record national debt, but some people still want to continue spending like there’s no tomorrow. If the European debt crisis teaches us anything, it’s that tomorrow always comes. Sooner or later, the markets will expect us to settle the bill for the enormous Obama-Pelosi-Reid spending binge. We’ve already been warned by the credit ratings agency Moody’s that unless we get serious about reducing our deficit, we may face a downgrade of our credit rating. Even the lamest of lame ducks can’t ignore this reality.

Sarah Palin Urges Republican Senators to Vote No to New START

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 18, 2010

Governor Palin’s Op-Ed on National Review Online:

 

Senate Republicans: Vote No on New START

By Sarah Palin                                             December 17, 2010 12:13 P.M.

The proposed New START agreement should be evaluated by the only criteria that matters for a treaty: Is it in America’s interest?  I am convinced this treaty is not.  It should not be rammed through in the lame duck session using behind the scenes deal-making reminiscent of the tactics used in the health care debate. 

New START actually requires the U.S. to reduce our nuclear weapons and allows the Russians to increase theirs.  This is one-sided and makes no strategic sense.  New START’s verification regime is weaker than the treaty it replaces, making it harder for us to detect Russian cheating.  Since we now know Russia has not complied with many arms control agreements currently in force, this is a serious matter.  

New START recognizes a link between offensive and defensive weapons – a position the Russians have sought for years.  Russia claims the treaty constrains U.S. missile defenses and that they will withdraw from the treaty if we pursue missile defenses.  This linkage virtually guarantees that either we limit our missile defenses or the Russians will withdraw from the treaty.  The Obama administration claims that this is not the case; but if that is true, why agree to linking offensive and defensive weapons in the treaty?  At the height of the Cold War, President Reagan pursued missile defense while also pursuing verifiable arms control with the then-Soviet Union.  That position was right in the 1980’s, and it is still right today.  We cannot and must not give up the right to missile defense to protect our population – whether the missiles that threaten us come from Russia, Iran, China, North Korea, or anywhere else. I fought the Obama administration’s plans to cut funds for missile defense in Alaska while I was Governor, and I will continue to speak out for missile defenses that will protect our people and our allies.

There are many other problems with the treaty, including the limitation on the U.S. ability to convert nuclear systems to conventional systems and the lack of restriction on Russian sea launched cruise missiles.  In addition, the recent reports that Russia moved tactical nuclear weapons (which are not covered by New START) closer to our NATO allies, demonstrate that the Obama administration has failed to convince Russia to act in a manner that does not threaten our allies.  

If I had a vote, I would oppose this deeply flawed treaty submitted to the Senate. Just because we were out-negotiated by the Russians that doesn’t mean we have to say yes to this. New START’s flaws have to be addressed in the form of changes to the treaty language that, at a minimum, completely de-link missile defense from offensive arms reductions.  Other issues would have to be addressed in the ratification process.  If this does not happen either now or next year, Senate Republicans, vote no!

Sarah Palin: New START Treaty Deeply Flawed; Not in America’s Best Interest

De-link Missile Defense; Defeat New START

by Sarah Palin on Friday, December 17, 2010 at 9:52am
