Governor Palin’s Statement on Defunding Planned Parenthood

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on April 3, 2011

Governor Sarah Palin has released the following statement regarding the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Won’t you stand with Governor Palin on this vital issue? Please consider sharing this message with others as well.

The greatest fiscal challenge facing our country today is our government’s dangerously unsustainable debt and its practice of deficit spending. Whatever side you’re on in the abortion debate, surely you can see that our taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund abortion at any time, let alone these hard economic times. And yet that is what has been happening with the taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood – the nation’s largest abortion provider, which is awash in scandal after revelations of its dishonesty with the American public. They receive an average of $1 million taxpayer dollars per day; and regardless of what they had promised the public in their campaign ads, new investigative reporting shows that they are not really using our tax dollars to provide women with mammograms and other real health care services. It’s simply freeing up funds that they can then invest in their primary money-making endeavor: abortion. Planned Parenthood doesn’t really offer women who find themselves in less-than-ideal circumstances any real choice. They don’t show women that they have the power, capability, strength, and love within themselves to choose the blessing that is life. They don’t explain the resources that are available to parents who want to give their child life. They don’t show them that adoption is a beautiful choice too. What they offer is not true empowerment or “choice” or women’s health care. I join Rep. Mike Pence and others of conscience and common sense who are leading the charge to end the taxpayer funding of the nation’s largest abortion provider. We recognize that not only is our country buried under Mt. McKinley-sized debt, but that the truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are least able to defend and speak for themselves. Surely the individual resources of a generous country can come to the aid of women in need without the taxpayer funding of abortion.

Send a message to your Representative and Senators requesting that they defund Planned Parenthood by using this easy form.
Defund Planned Parenthood Resources are available from the Susan B. Anthony List here.

Palin weighs in on Wisconsin Supreme Court race

Posted by loricalabrese on April 3, 2011

The nation has had its eyes set on Wisconsin as the standoff over union rights escalated and now the nation has its eyes set on the Wisconsin Supreme Court race.

Incumbent Justice David Prosser is facing Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg at the polls on Tuesday and Sarah Palin has weighed in with an endorsement.

On Friday, Palin tweeted:

“Wisconsin, please remember to vote for Justice Prosser on April 5. Visit his website here: http://www.justiceprosser.com/”.

The AP reports that Prosser’s campaign says it didn’t seek her endorsement, but welcomes broad support. Kloppenburg’s campaign declined to comment.

The race has received national attention since everything from the future of collective bargaining powers to control of state government could be at stake.

Prosser, a former Republican Assembly speaker, often aligns himself with the court’s 4-3 conservative majority. He was appointed by Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson in 1998 and was elected to a full term in 2001.

Palin As Christian Antidote To Nietzsche’s Superman

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on April 3, 2011

Nietzsche, in rejecting Christianity, a “slaves religion’ as “the idea of a God who gives us values, changeless and transcendent” left himself open to the charge of nihilism. To counter this charge, with a “God substitute” he posited the idea of a superman. 


This is of course not a physical superman, although Nietzsche’s ideal man can possess superior physical properties. Rather it is a real, superior person who, by relying on his intuitive sense of right and wrong rises above the herd. “The superman therefore is the ideal of someone who has mastered the practice of overcoming himself.”


That is, the superman views the world and its values as is in a state of flux. Recognizing the need to improve on outdated concepts, including his own, or to be left behind by a superior individual, he reinvents himself by casting off old values and building new ones.


The values of this Nietzschean superman, having rejected the Christian God, naturally include as virtues lustful sex, selfishness, the will to power, and, rejecting an afterlife, total immersion in getting as much as possible out this one and only life. Thus for Nietzsche and his superman, for society to reach its fullest potential a new system of values, based on a Godless culture, with the superior individual governed only by his innate sense of morality, is required.


In our day Sarah Palin is also presenting and in fact embodying a new, or rather revised, set of values, which stand in the starkest possible contrast to the Nietzschean system. By contrasting Palin’s Christian humility with Nietzsche’s superman, her prescription for America’s future become very clear. It is a future based on the values of love and submission to the will of a loving God, and the contrast brings it into the starkest light, where it shines all the better for the exposure.


Palin’s God is changeless and transcendent. Instead of relying on her intuitive compass, she relies on a moral compass whose north point is indicated by Christian values. Nietzsche describes the Christian view as holding to a concept of an inherently evil world. To live in the world and adhere to its values is to be opposed to God’s will (God being perfect) thus only an ascetic, world rejecting attitude, can bring a Christian salvation and the rewards of an afterlife.


This view of Christianity, with its concordant sense of guilt at the failure to be ascetic enough, brings a sense of failure. The suppression, as Paglia would have it, of the Dionysian, leads to an individual, in fact a population, that is “sickly and weak.” No wonder a Nietzschean superman is needed to manage the herd in this faith based nightmare world.


This view of Christianity  has next to nothing to do with actual Christianity, and most certainly Sarah Palin’s faith. The man Jesus was certainly of this world, as Christians are expected to be. The supposed sense of guilt at not meeting God’s expectations is assuaged by the indisputable fact that “all have sinned and fallen short.” the remedy is of course the life affirming belief of redemption by faith.


For those who take that path “springs of living water will flow from them” by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. If there ever was a prescription for joy, health, vigor, optimism and a full life the Christian faith is it. Sarah Palin, in her own  person is the absolute antithesis of the “pale and sickly” Christian visage which Nietzsche wrongly ascribes to believers.


The superman is supposed to be guided by the premise that there is nothing in this world which is permanent. In contrast to this false concept, Palin’s God, through Jesus incarnate, inculcates a transcendent permanence “Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words will remain forever.” Nietzsche’s rejection of Christianity opens the path to all the various forms of socialism, to dictators who view themselves as embodying “the will of the masses.”


The Christian God that Palin follows brings the direct opposite to Nietzschean selfishness. 2012 may bring the opportunity to finally cast aside the negativity which has permeated American life for the last decade and usher in a new age of Christian renewal.

Alicia Colon: Rethinking Sarah Palin For President

Excellent article by Alicia Colon at The Irish Examiner:

Rethinking Sarah Palin For President 

By Alicia Colon

Although I have written several columns expressing my admiration for Sarah Palin, I admit I have never taken her seriously as a 2012 presidential candidate. I’ve always felt that her greatest asset was as a kingmaker and behind the scenes advisor. In addition I’ve assumed that she wasn’t that interested in pursuing the job but rather enjoyed making waves in the liberal media. The more I read the continuing attacks on Palin and her family I’ve started wondering why the Democrats and their media lapdogs fear her so much. Even some conservative pundits have determined that she is unelectable because of her high negatives. Those negatives are actually bogus and based on lies and misinformation and there is really only one word to describe Sarah Palin – indomitable.

[…]

Why on earth American voters should listen to Doyle who has been an outright critic of all things conservative is beyond me but then again why does anybody watch The View? What he gets completely wrong is the impact of Sarah Palin’s reality show. It probably did more to promote tourism in her state than all the previous travelogues. It was also clear from the TV show how much Ms. Palin loves Alaska which is the real reason she quit as governor. If Mr. Doyle had done any research he would have learned that staying in office while she was being pursued by unending bogus lawsuits and vicious media attacks made her duties as governor near impossible.

I didn’t watch the entire Palin series but the ones I did watch left me with the impression that Sarah Palin represented the American woman we rarely get to see in the media-strong, independent and proud to be a mother. Mr. Doyle found this last image so offensive, he had to mock it because what mainstream media anchorwoman touts that familial connection? Fox News on the other hand has its anchorwomen proudly blooming on air throughout their pregnancies and not hiding their womanhood.

I also came away with a wishful thought about how wonderful it would be for our country to be represented by such a strong, vibrant woman who clearly loves this nation. I felt the same as a teenager when John F. Kennedy emerged as a presidential candidate and the nation was overwhelmed by his youth, charisma and beautiful family. We knew very little then about Kennedy’s negatives and if the Internet had been around in 1960, it’s doubtful he would have been elected. Conversely, we know everything about Sarah Palin and despite the distortion and lies about her character, what we see is what we get and frankly that honesty is what we need right now.

Each time the mainstream media tries to belittle her accomplishments she seizes the opportunity to set the story straight and the demonization backfires. The New York Times published an article attempting to denigrate her record involving Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share (ACES) which allows residents to share in oil revenue. Palin wrote a rebuttal on Facebook called, “NYT-There You Go Again.”:

“Most importantly, Alaska enjoys a $12 billion surplus thanks to ACES and the sound fiscal policies of my administration. I put billions of dollars aside in savings accounts (though I could have easily spent those billions and made a lot of friends with big-spending legislators on both sides of the aisle), and I continued to veto excess spending and Obama stimulus funds, and chopped earmarks by 86% – much to the chagrin of liberal legislators who were used as “sources” in the article. It’s kind of amusing to see state legislators claim credit for the surplus when they didn’t vote for ACES, and they cried to high heaven when I vetoed their wasteful spending on their special interest projects.”

The liberal media is also not reporting the success of her trips to our allies India and Israel because our president himself would not fare well in comparison. His last overseas trip is regarded as a colossal failure and more of a distraction from the serious global events like the imploding Mideast and the looming nuclear disaster in Japan. Obama effigies are being stomped on and beaten by Sri Lankan Muslims over the bombings in Libya. The question inevitable arises – what would a President Palin do? Better?

Barack Obama was never fully grilled on his ability to govern because he had no real executive experience and frankly the media didn’t wish to expose his shortcomings.

Sarah Palin does have that experience as governor and we can gage from that what her priorities would be as president. Her record shows that she would not be burdening the American people with a multi-trillion dollar budget that would bankrupt the country. Her recent interview with Greta Van Susteren proved her to be a realistic and sympathetic observer of the difficulty Israel faces on a daily basis. Unlike our president who leans more towards the UN condemnation of that harried nation, Palin asked the question Israelis have been asking for decades: “Why is it that in the past, too often, the U.S. government has told Israel that they’re the ones, the Jewish community, that they need to back up, they need to back off or there will never be peace? They need to keep conceding? Why aren’t we putting our foot down with the other side and telling the Palestinians, if you’re serious about peace, quit the shellacking and the shelling, quit the bombing of innocent Israelis. Look at the young Israeli family that was slaughtered in their house a week or two ago. Look at today, the bombing of those innocents at a bus station in Jerusalem.”

This is not a dumb woman. This is an extremely competent and courageous woman whom I’d vote for in a nanosecond as my Commander-in-Chief. Dream ticket-Palin/Rubio.

The more the media attacks her, the more we get to hear her intelligent and self-assured responses debunking them all – and all without a teleprompter. No wonder they hate her.

Here is an excellent video by godstenrules in which two animated figures discuss Governor Palin and detail her accomplishments as a local and state executive.  It sounds almost like a campaign ad!
