The SarahPAC website has received a long overdue makeover and revealed its attractive new face today. The beauty is more than just skin deep, however, as the new site has much improved functionality and is much more easily navigated.

Here’s the announcement we received via e-mail from Tim Crawford :

Today, SarahPAC is excited to announce the launch of our new website! It’s been many months in the making and will allow SarahPAC’s supporters and friends to read Sarah’s latest posts, connect, and see some of the conservative candidates that SarahPAC supports — Palin’s Picks!

Please go to www.sarahpac.com and take a look! Don’t forget to ‘Like’ Sarah on Facebook!

Yours truly,

Tim Crawford

Let’s see now… Michael Glassner hired as COS in February, a grand slam speech in Madison Saturday and a serious SarahPAC overhaul launched today. We just love it when a plan starts to come together…

Happy Passover

Posted by Ron Devito on April 18, 2011

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

Tonight is Passover, the Jewish people’s celebration of their deliverance from bondage and their Exodus to the Land of Israel. Passover contains poignant spiritual and historical meaning for Jews, but it also reminds all of us of mankind’s universal aspiration to be free from bondage and oppression. Today, in the same region where the story of Exodus took place, Arabs suffering under despotic regimes are seeking their own freedom and self-determination. As Jews in Israel, the Middle East’s only liberal democracy, gather for Passover, we hope for the spread of freedom and peace throughout the region. On this Passover holiday, our family sends our best wishes to the Jewish community. Chag kasher V’Sameach. Happy Passover. And next year in Jerusalem.

Say what, Meghan?

Posted by Morgan on April 18, 2011

Somebody named Meghan Daum had a column out yesterday on Sarah in the Los Angeles Times which featured statements I have found to be the most baffling ever written by anybody (and I mean anybody) working in the American media today.  She claimed thanks to the “Palin machine” (Ms. Daum’s idea of a flattering nickname), it’s impossible to criticize Sarah “without being discredited as a biased and therefore unqualified source”.  Naturally, there’s more:

And that’s not the only reason why we can’t bring ourselves to take the gloves off with Palin. It’s impossible not to feel like we’re punching shamefully below our weight, which everyone knows is against the rules. Palin lacks the intellectual, analytical and rhetorical skills to have a competent discussion about policy or much else. She is handicapped not only by a lack of education, experience and curiosity about the world (wearing a Star of David in Israel doesn’t count), but by a speaking style that often collapses under the weight of disjointed, undiagrammable sentences. She is, in terms of the political arena, easily outclassed.

Does Meghan Daum live in some kind of bizarro world?  Apparently, it has never occurred to her that the reason why some members of the media have been discredited as biased and unqualified is because they relied on misleads, distortions, falsehoods, lies and blatantly biased sources when it came to their coverage of Sarah and her record in the first place. But the thing which baffles me most is her claim that she (and her “friends and readers”) would like “to rip the lady to shreds and move on”, but cannot because Sarah “is too well-shielded by her own incompetence”.  Has it ever occurred to her that those of like mind as her friends and readers have already attempted to rip the lady to shreds and failed because their criticism has been unfounded and makes them look like fools repeatedly? As far as Meghan Daum is concerned, I hate to think she represents what Los Angeles is today.

Sales For Sarah Palin’s Second Book Spike Unexpectedly

Posted by Gary P Jackson on April 18, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin’s second book: America by Heart : Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag has popped up on the Washington Post’s best seller list months after it was first released, and made it as high as number two on the New York Times best seller list.

From the Post:

A new book this week, though not new to the this particular bestseller list, is Sarah Palin’s 2010 “America By Heart” — the fact that it’s selling well again (at least this past week) seems to defy the notion, popping up in scores of articles lately, that her influence is waning and she’s less of a force than she once was.

After the game changing speech Sarah made on Saturday in Wisconsin, I bet sales of the book will continue to be brisk! On Saturday Sarah threw down the gauntlet and proclaimed to both Barack Obama and the Republican establishment: “Game on!

Sarah ‘s first book, Going Rogue, which came out in late October of 2009, was the number one selling non-fiction book of 2009 and spent many weeks at number one on the New York Times best sellers list.

America By Heart is a follow up to Going Rogue and like the first, is a serious policy book, and an engaging read. Though not as heavily promoted as the first, it sold over a million copies [and counting!] This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to understand how Sarah Palin governed Alaska and how she would govern as President.

In addition to the books Sarah has written herself, great read is The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin, which we reviewed here. The authors, Stephen Mansfield and David A Holland, spent a lot of time with the Palin and Heath families, as well as friends of the family.

This book gives you a serious history, not only of Sarah, but her family, Todd’s family, and Alaska itself. It’s a must read book for those who want to understand Sarah Palin and what makes her tick. You can read my review and listen to Stephen Mansfield read some of the book here.

Palin: Mr. President, game on

Posted by loricalabrese on April 18, 2011

On Saturday, did the U.S. witness a potential 2012 candidate deliver one of her first stump speeches or did the U.S. witness a dedicated patriot energizing her base and Tea Party Americans?

Perhaps both.

Sarah Palin headed right to the scene where protests at the State Capitol pitted Democrats against tea-party inspired Republicans in a  political drama followed across the country and delivered a strong  campaign-like speech at the tea party’s annual tax day rally in Madison,  Wisconsin. Palin not only stood firm against protestors and harsh  weather conditions, she delved into a variety of issues, praising Scott  Walker for his leadership and fiscal discipline, calling out the GOP for  failing to fulfill campaign promises and ripping into Barack Obama by  comparing his 2008 campaign promises to his time as president.

“I’m in Madison because this is where real courage and real  solidarity can be found,” Palin shouted. “You saw these violent  rent-a-mobs trash your capital and vandalize businesses. You held your  ground. Your governor did the same thing. And you won.”

Palin had quite the backdrop to deliver a strong message to the GOP.

“We didn’t elect you just to re-arrange the deck chairs on a sinking  Titanic,” Palin said. “We didn’t elect you to just stand back and watch  Obama re-distribute those deck chairs. What we need is for you to stand  up, GOP, and fight. Maybe I should ask some of the Badger women’s hockey  team—those champions—maybe I should ask them if we should be suggesting  to GOP leaders they need to learn how to fight like a girl!”

Palin was referencing the new batch of conservatives elected in  November, who were voted in to head to Washington and fight. However,  they caved on one of their biggest election promises– cutting the  budget. As Palin pointed out, the supposed $38 billion in cuts deal,  which mounted to only $300 million in actual cuts, was a betrayal to  most of what the GOP promised it would do.

Palin stressed, “That is not courage; that’s capitulation!”

After taking on the GOP, Palin then took on Obama, not mincing words in the rest of her 16-minute speech.

Palin called his financial stimulus package “useless” and several of his initiatives “cockamamie and harebrained.”

“We’re flat broke and he thinks these solar shingles and really fast  trains will magically save us. So now he’s shouting ‘all aboard’ his  bullet train to bankruptcy. Win the future? WTF is about right,” Palin  said.

As Palin “fought like a girl” and ripped into Obama, one can’t help but wonder, will she run?

She mentioned 2012 repeatedly, at one point saying, “The 2012  election begins here” and perhaps she answered the question on  everyone’s mind at the end of her speech…

“It starts here! It starts now!” Palin said. “What better place than  the state that hosts the Super Bowl champs to call out the liberal left  and let them know: Mr. President, game on!”

Happy Third Birthday Trig Paxson Van Palin

Posted by Ron Devito on April 18, 2011

At this moment, three years ago today, Trig Paxson Van Palin was born. Governor Sarah Palin was speaking at a National Governors Association conference in Dallas, TX when she started having contractions. She returned to Alaska so Trig would be born on Alaskan soil. “Trig” is a Norse name with two meanings: “true” and “brave victory.” The first three letters of “Paxson” are Latin for “peace.”

Politician and conservative activist Sarah Palin holds her son Trig Palin as she attends a rally for the Tea Party Express national tour October 22, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona. The tour, part of an initiative to get conservatives elected to the House and Senate, will move across country and conclude on November 1, 2010 in Concord, New Hampshire the day before the contentious mid-term elections.

“Every child is created special with awesome purpose and amazing potential. Children are the most precious and promising ingredient in this mixed-up world….”

-Gov. Palin, Going Rogue, P. 186.

Politician and conservative activist Sarah Palin laughs with her son Trig Palin as she attends a rally for the Tea Party Express national tour October 22, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona. The tour, part of an initiative to get conservatives elected to the House and Senate, will move across country and conclude on November 1, 2010 in Concord, New Hampshire the day before the contentious mid-term elections.

On this day, we take a pause to wish Trig a Happy Birthday and a life filled with joy, and to recognize his mother – Gov. Palin – who stood up, did the right thing, and lived her values.

Happy Third Birthday, Trig Palin!

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on April 18, 2011

This Slideshow was created on April 18, 2010 and is updated every time new photos are added

Today is Trig Paxton Van Palin’s third birthday!  We’ve watched him grow from an infant to a happy toddler as he accompanied his famous Mom and Dad to the 2008 RNC convention and to various spots along the campaign trail, accompanied his Mom to book signing events, and starred with his family in “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” 

On behalf of all the authors at the Sarah Palin Information Blog, I want to wish Trig a very happy third birthday and many more birthdays to come.  May your years be filled with happiness, and may the Lord’s grace and favor follow you always.   May the Lord’s protective hand be over you as you grow into a young man, and may all your dreams come true!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TRIG!
