Colorado Christian University prepared for Sarah Palin visit

Unlike the Pacheco Foundation, which allowed leftist cranks to bully it into cancelling a charity fundraising event with Sarah Palin as keynote speaker, Colorado Christian University is ready and able to deal with deranged, Palin-hating liberals, according to a report in The Denver Post:

John Andrews, who leads the Centennial Institute think tank at the Lakewood college, said the school has a signed contract for the event and is prepared to deal with any publicity — positive or negative — that the conservative star might bring with her.

“Her staff has told us to expect an interesting ride, in terms of static,” Andrews said. “We know what’s down that road, and we are eager to go there.”

On Feb. 4, the Sharon K. Pacheco Foundation announced that Palin would be the featured speaker at a May 2 benefit in Glendale for military families but canceled the event less than 48 hours later, blaming threats and negative feedback.

[…]

Andrews said the Tea Party icon will not receive a speaking fee for her appearance at CCU. Palin’s fee sometimes exceeds $100,000, the Washington Speaker’s Bureau said last month.

Andrews said he doesn’t think security concerns derailed the Pacheco Foundation event and that Colorado came off “not looking great” because of a “perception that someone important could be chased away.

“Certainly, there is a warm welcome for her on our campus,” Andrews said.

[…]

All ticket proceeds from Palin’s Lakewood appearance will support the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, a national nonprofit group benefiting the families of fallen soldiers, Andrews said.

Andrews said the fact that Palin’s eldest son is a veteran made her a great choice for the event. Track Palin served in Iraq in 2008-2009.

Ratings war on May 2nd!

Posted by ehvogel on March 8, 2011

I don’t know if Sarah Palin’s pro bono speech at Colorado Christian University’s fundraiser for the troops will be televised, but it should be. In light of the fact that her speech will take place at the same time as the Republican debate at the Reagan Presidential Library, we’d have an interesting comparison. I’d really love to see how the ratings of her televised appearance in Colorado compare to the ratings for the debate sponsored by left-leaning organizations like NBC and Politico.

Fox News, are you listening?

Sarah Palin: I stand strong with Israel … this strong democratic ally

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 8, 2011

Governor Palin’s face lit up and her tone was animated as she responded to Judge Jeanine Pirro’s question as to whether the U. S. should cut foreign aid to Israel. 

Gil Ronen at Arutz Sheva reports:

Israel National NewsFormer Alaska governor Sarah Palin came out strongly in favor of continued U.S. foreign aid to Israel in a Sunday interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Foxnews. 

“You know I’m sure that there’s some waste and fraud in our foreign aid we need to find efficiencies  and not give to any regime that would seek to harm Americans in any sense of the word ‘harm,'” Palin said, “I don’t support that kind of foreign aid at all. but when it comes to Israel – NO…  I stand strong with Israel and unapologetically I say that America should keep this strong democratic ally that we have there in the Middle East and allow for protections around Israel.”

“Think of what this state Israel has gone through, and what they have suffered through and what they have triumphed over,” she said. “It is really telling about their tenacity and their character and it’s just one reason, that character, as to why it is that we want them as our friend.”

In a confident, articulate appearance and what some see as one of her best interviews to date, Palin was also asked why the Obama Administration was so hesitant to call the shooting of the US airmen in Germany an act of terror. Carefully, she said: “Our president’s world view certainly seems a bit different than, I believe, most Americans because… I think if you ask most Americans on the street if someone was hell bent on killing one of our military personnel yelling Allah Akbar and had terrorist ties and you can’t see that clearly as a terrorist, then we’ve got some things quite askew in our Administration.”

 

Regarding the situation in Libya, where dictator Muammar Qaddafi is fighting to retain control, Palin came out in favor of a US-imposed no-fly zone there.

[..]

Judge Pirro asked Palin why she thought Obama was so slow about taking sides against Qaddafi when he was relatively quick about choosing sides against Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak. Palin replied with a question:

 
“Why was he so hesitant back with the Green movement in Iran, when freedom fighters wanted to oust Ahmadinejad and our president didn’t really want to participate there, with the language at least that should have showed the support for ousting a dictator, ousting an oppressor?”     
 
“It’s tough to pinpoint why it is that President Obama (…) would seek to oust at least a quasi-ally in Mubarak who had been by our side for those 30 years… quick to oust him but quite hesitant on Qaddafi, on Ahmadinejad… that scares me.”

Palin continues to push no-fly zone over Libya

Posted by loricalabrese on March 8, 2011

As the fighting between opposition forces and Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s troops begins to look more like a civil war, Obama on Monday warned Libya’s leaders that the U.S. and its NATO allies are still considering military options in response to what he called “unacceptable” violence perpetrated by supporters of Moammar Gadhafi.

On Saturday, Sarah Palin appeared on FOX News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine and was asked if she thought Obama should send troops into Libya or at least make it a no fly zone.

Palin, who all along has stated that NATO and our allies should look at establishing a no-fly zone reiterated that fact to Judge Jeanine.

“Certainly a no fly zone,” Palin said. “I hate to say, jeez, more troops on the ground. You know send more of our brave young men and women over there in Libya. When yes, 41 years of Gadhafi. He’s got to go.”

Palin stressed how it was unfortunate that our administration took so long to finally have any kind of full throated support for ousting Qaddhafi.

Palin said, “…we should have told him, warned him through strong verbiage. We should have said Gadhafi, ‘If you touch a hair on one American citizen’s head, we’re going to hit you. We’re going to hit you hard. And you’re not going to be left standing.'”

White House spokesman Jay Carney on Monday said a military response was no more likely than it was before the surge in violence. He said the U.S. and its partners are considering a wide variety of military actions, including a no-fly zone, but said deploying ground troops “is not top of the list at this point.”

Gov. Palin to Headline Military Appreciation Rally in Colorado May 2

Posted by joshpainter on March 8, 2011

You can’t keep a Mama Grizzly down. Nor can you intimidate all the good grizzlies who are determined to hold a benefit for the families of the fallen. After the Sharon K. Pacheco Foundation was forced to scuttle plans to have Sarah Palin speak at a similar fundraiser in Glendale, Colorado because of personal attacks and “an onslaught of negative rhetoric” against Gov. Palin, Colorado Christian University has announced Tribute to the Troops, featuring the 2008 vice presidential candidate as keynote speaker.

Scheduled for the CCU Event Center on the university’s Lakewood campus May 2, the same date that the Pacheco event was to have taken place, the rally will also feature retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin and members of all branches of the US Armed Forces.

Only 1,000 tickets will be sold at $25 each, and all proceeds will be donated to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), the front line charity benefiting the families and loved ones of our military men and women.

To purchase tickets, register here.

Ryan Easily Wins Wisconsin ’12 Poll.If Palin’s VP He Brings Electoral College Win

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on March 8, 2011

The Hill has an analysis of a PPP poll showing that Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan is way ahead of his putative rivals in that state if he was a candidate for president in 2012.

The poll gives Ryan 30% of the vote in a big field but way ahead of Mike Huckabee who comes in in second place at 17%. Since Ryan has strongly advised he will not be a candidate there are a number of interesting scenario’s that arise from the poll.

Firstly, as has been the case for many months the combined Palin/Huckabee support (with Ryan removed from the poll is 38% to Romney’s 12% which proves, once again, that the grass roots-even in this traditionally liberal state, want a conservative candidate (which of course Ryan is also).

Secondly if Ryan was selected by Palin, should she get the nomination, as her VP choice, bearing in mind Palin has often singled out Ryan for praise, especially his economic “road map” which she quotes often (and Ryan has not denied he would take the VP slot, rather he has in fact left that door open) then a very interesting electoral college map appears.

If Wisconsin is added to the base red states and Palin won back the red states that Bush had one but McCain lost the following electoral path to victory is very real. (Click on map for larger view)

Palin could afford to lose Nevada/New Mexico/New Hampshire and even Iowa and the one Nebraskan Electoral College vote that Obama won and still win.

Palin and Ryan appear very compatible in economic matters and he would lend a degree of gravitas to that area.The base accepts him and he has youthful exuberance allied with respected experience.According to the electoral map it is a winning combination.
