Governor Palin’s Women of Joy Video

Posted by Adrienne Ross on April 22, 2011

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

Good Friday is a good time to see this short video clip of Governor Palin’s recent speech at the Women of Joy Women’s Conference in Oklahoma. She talks about focusing on God’s purpose, listening to Jesus’ voice, and embracing vision over victimhood.

I readily admit it: Governor Palin inspires me.

(h/t Kenton, and thanks to Ron for reconfiguring the video)

The Price of Taking on Trig Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on April 22, 2011

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

Sometimes it’s best to just sit tight and watch people self-destruct. I got to do just that this week.

Wonkette, the disgusting, vile, pro-abortion, Palin-hating rag of a website, decided to show how “courageous” it is by going after Trig Palin on Monday, his third birthday. This innocent young man, born with Down Syndrome, has done nothing to deserve this treatment. Of course, many on the far-left deem him the enemy simply because he’s alive, because his mother didn’t abort him, and mostly because they are plain evil. They went too far this time, and they’re paying the price.

Wonkette writer, Jack Stuef, put up a doctored picture of Trig, and in an article called “Greatest Living American: A Children’s Treasury of Trig Crap On His Birthday,” wrote:

What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded.

[…]

His mom went to a lot of trouble to leak amniotic fluid over 8 states to make sure that he arrived in this world somewhat alive,”

[…]

Enjoy yourself today, Trig. Have fun! Get drunk (on purpose this time)! We can hardly wait for 15 years from now, when you will finally be able to vote and will be sent off by your mother’s junta to fight the Union in the Great Alaska War. It’ll be quite a loss. You’re the smartest one in that family.

You won’t find that full post anymore because after the Internet community lit Wonkette’s butt on fire, they had to walk back their “satire.” They then issued some poor excuse of an apology and pulled the post. Prior to that, however, Governor Palin thanked those on Twitter who spoke up in defense of her little man. She tweeted her appreciation:

Big thanks from the Palin family to folks on Twitter today who took a stand for children w/special needs. Happy Easter!Thank you #TrigsCrew

I have great respect for how Governor Palin handled this. We all know that, like all mothers, she doesn’t want people messing with her kids. Her mama grizzly instincts rise up. She would have been perfectly within her rights to lash out at Wonkette, but she was able to allow others to fight for her. All that was left for her to do was to offer her thanks to the army of people who not only have her back, but Trig’s as well. Believe it or not, even intense leftists took a stand and denounced Wonkette’s reprehensible behavior.

Palin-Derangement Syndrome is a serious illess, we know. But this is just over the top. Going after those who cannot defend themselves, who have done nothing wrong, and who only offer love and joy to those they come in contact with will not be tolerated. These people will pay a price.

I am glad that Mama Grizzly didn’t have to rise up on her hind legs to defend her cub this time. Others did, much to the chagrin of Wonkette. Companies have pulled their ads from them, a long overdue exodus. M. Joseph Sheppard highlights the first sponsor to throw Wonkette under the bus, where it belongs:

Many have joined Papa John’s. According to Josh Painter, at least 27 have now chosen to do the right thing. For an incomplete list of those companies who have pulled their support, go here.

Hopefully, the message has been sent loud and clear. Family members of public figures are off-limits. President Obama made it clear that his children were not to be touched, and everybody obliged. However, from Day 1, Governor Palin’s children have been put on the chopping block to be smacked around at every little whim. And don’t even come with that stupid meme that she used her children as props in 2008, so they’re fair game. She did no such thing. She did only what every loving parent has done. She introduced us to her children, which is what President Obama did–which is what everyone does. Had she not allowed them to come on stage, she would have been accused of being ashamed of them. She’s not ashamed of her children, and that includes Trig. This is what bugs people like those affiliated with Wonkette. They would rather she had done what 90% of Americans pregnant with a Down Syndrome child still do–abort him. Since she didn’t, they’d like her to tuck him away somewhere so they don’t have to see him, so they’re not reminded of their own lack of humanity. How dare she love him so much? Doesn’t she know he has special needs? This is how these people think.

I sure hope Wonkette and Jack Stuef’s despicable attempt to mock Trig Palin and hurt his family was worth the price they’re now paying because now they’re the ones who have been hurt. Good.

We love Trig Palin and the Palin family–and we stand with them.

A Most Wonderful Day

Posted by Gary P Jackson on April 22, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Social media has become an important part of our lives. Especially Twitter. I know a lot of folks spend time on Facebook networking, and hooking up, but Twitter is the undisputed king when it comes to getting information out fast, and is by far the best way to organize a group of people, and inspire them to act.

In the Middle East, Twitter was used with great effectiveness by Liberty and Freedom seeking protesters. People in Iran, Egypt, Bahrain, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Libya have all used this social media to help effect change, or at least attempt change. The only reason some attempts failed is because the nation’s leaders shut down internet access, thus thwarting this very effective communication tool.

This, by the way, is why many are extremely troubled by attempts in this country to give the president full authority to shut down the internet “in case of emergency,”a chilling thought with this president, but that’s a whole different issue.

The story I want to tell, this wonderful coming together of good and decent people was actually several days in the making. You see, Sarah’s beautiful son Trig just turned three years old! A nice time indeed.

Well, it seems the sewer rats over at Wonkette decided they’d “celebrate” Trig’s birth as well. What’s a “Wonkette” you ask? It’s a vile democrat website that smears anyone and everyone they hate [it’s a long list] hiding under the guise of “satirical license.” They are the darling of the democrat party, and a shining example how morally bankrupt the base of the party has become.

It’s one of those places that helped further the conspiracy that Sarah Palin is not really Trig’s mother, something started by Barack Obama’s hand pick crew in Alaska that we refer to here as the Alaska Mafia. [Google it] People like amateur pornographer Jesse Griffin, one of the Alaska bloggers, frequently see their delusional writing about Sarah Palin and her family “glorified‘ on this website.

To commemorate Trig’s birthday, a really sick bastard by the name of Jack Stuef wrote what can only be called a despicable piece of crap. So vile it defies description.

One has to wonder what kind of sub-human trash would attack a 3 year old child with Down Syndrome, just because they have an irrational hatred for the child’s mother.

This pile of human debris called Trig “retarded” then went into the whole “Trig Truther” nonsense, even going so far to suggest that maybe Todd Palin raped one of his daughters and thus, the whole cover up about who Trig’s real mother was. He also included what I’d characterize mildly pornographic images next to Trig’s likeness.

Oh, and this loser threw out the democrat’s favorite talking point, that Trig is only a “prop” for Sarah and her family. You know, because no other person in politics has ever had family or brought them out in public.

The left would never be caught dead with someone like Trig in public. You wanna know how the sainted Kennedy family treated on of their children?

In 1941, when Rosemary Kennedy was 23 her father, Joe Kennedy, had doctors perform a lobotomy on the girl because she had “mood swings.”

For what it’s worth, I just had a mood swing writing this!

In the end, Rosemary lived her tormented life in an institution. Out of site and pretty much out of mind. After all, Joe couldn’t have his sons JFK, RFK, and Teddy “embarrassed” by their sister.

The left’s hatred for Trig [and Sarah] can be boiled down to the fact she chose not to murder this beautiful child as is the case with most Down Syndrome children. Around 90% of women who are told their children may be born with Down Syndrome chose to abort these babies. A tragedy of unspeakable magnitude.

The cult of death among liberals is also a cult of hatred for all who choose life. All of the hatred for Sarah, the attacks, the lies, are all because Sarah Palin, by keeping her beautiful son, reminds them how disgusting they truly are. It brings out the self loathing in them.

By the way, my newest fantasy is that Todd and Mr Stuef have the opportunity to meet some day. I’ll leave it at that.

The face of today’s democrat party

Now you’re probably wondering where all of the “wonderful” is that I alluded to in the tittle. Well ….

First let me say that two of the real heroes of this story are John Nolte Editor-in-Chief for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Hollywood and Derek Hunter from The Daily Caller These two got the ball rolling, and kept it rolling. with that said, this story has a cast of hundreds, if not thousands, including some great companies who sent a strong message to people that would attack a 3 year old disabled child!

It started early Wednesday, after the vile article had been discovered earlier. Twitter, being the vibrant network it is, went to work.

Now I want to point out early on, that mass calls for boycotts were not part of this effort.

People involved simply found out who the advertisers on that vile site were, and then found their twitter accounts and simply sent them a tweet, including a link to the article, asking them if this was the sort of thing they wanted to be involved with.

There was no intimidation, none of the thug tactics we’ve seen used by the union protesters nationwide. People simply showed these great companies how their hard earned dollars were being used. The sort of thing they were funding.

To their credit, in short order reps from the makers of Huggies and Papa John’s Pizza were very vocal saying they wanted no part of it. Vangard Financial was right behind them.

Now before you ask why they were advertising in this cesspool to start with, you should know, they likely had no idea.

Our man on the East Coast, Greg Tartaglia, did a bit of digging and found that Ken Layne, the owner of the Wonkette hate site, also owns a company called Blogads. It’s one of those companies, like Google Ads, that places advertising fairly randomly around the internet. Blog owners get a small piece of the pie as readers click on these ads. If you visit blogs that feature advertising, you’ve seen this company in action.

From their website:

Today Blogads.com connects 3500 blogs with a joyful stew of advertisers ranging from corporate giants to mom&mom T-shirt peddlers. Advertisers include NBC, Audi, PBS, Time Warner, JohnKerry.com, The Republican National Committee, The New Republic, Rhino Records, O’Reilly Media, Bagnews,Paramount Pictures, Random House, Network Solutions, Turner Broadcasting,eChristianWebhosting, Nokia, VH1, and Budget Renta Car.

Doesn’t Layne’s company sound so wonderful? A “joyful stew” even. [WTF?]

No one would ever know this guy was nothing more than a filth peddler, who traffics in hate, if they read this cheery little description.

As the Twitter effort gained steam, companies like Reliant Energy, Starkist Tuna, The San Diego Zoo, Holland America Cruises, Coldwell Banker and many more all joined in.

Here’s a sample of some of their Twitter replies:

JJIll: “All: Please know we do not condone the Wonkette story. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have taken action to remove our ads.”

Holland America Cruises: “Thanks for letting us known, we have blocked that page from running our ads.”

Nordstrom: “Thanks for letting us know. The ads have been removed. We’re sorry to disappoint you.”

Reliant Energy: “Thank you for alerting us. We did not choose this site and are working to have this removed immediately.”

Bob Evans: “Our ad is not supposed to be running on that site. Agency has been alerted to pull it immediately.”

Coldwell Banker: “We are in the process of pulling our ads from Wonkette.”

DealSwarm: “We’ve pulled our ads from the site — we wouldn’t have approved them running next to that blog post. (Trig is a cutie pie.) Thank you for alerting us — we weren’t aware our ads were running alongside a blog post like that. Ads have been pulled.”

MetroPCS: “We don’t condone @Wonkette, have removed the ad and ensured that our ads won’t appear on this site in the future. Thanks for bringing to our attention.

Oh, and there are many more.

As the day went on, the people at Wonkette really started to feel the heat. Eventually they would scrub the author’s name from the story, as well as many of their fan’s comments about Trig and the rest of the Palin family.

These scrubbed comments were actually as bad, if not worse than the original article, as hard as that may be to believe.

At this point the entire post has been deleted by the Wonkette crew.

The Huffington Post, CNN, and others, who gleefully reported Wonkette’s “birthday greeting” have scrubbed the offensive mess from their websites as well.

Even Google scrubbed the original cashed link, something we didn’t think was possible! The progressives were working over time to send this way down the memory hole.

Speaking of HuffPo, they were feeling the heat as well. The hate mongering site, who’s creator is basically running AOL’s news division now, announced they were banning all talk of Trig Trutherism. Ben Smith reports this here.

This is significant, because HuffPo and Wonkette trade in hateful attacks on Trig, and both have published shocking photoshopped “art” of the young man. If adhered to, this will be quite a blow to Obama’s Alaska Mafia, as they have always been given carte blanche on the Huffington site to post any smear about the Palin’s they could cook up!

Tommy Christopher from Mediaite, a left leaning website was even more forceful, going after Wonkette in a major way. Christopher separated the men from the boys with his very strong piece. Updated several times, it includes a back and forth between Mediaite and Wonkette’s Ken Layne a morally bankrupt loser. This is a must read.

As the day went on, and as bloggers started reporting on this, more advertisers rejected Wonkette, and more hate started flying from the embattled group.

In particular, Wonkette’s people were angered by Papa Johns Pizza, calling for the bottom feeders who read their website to boycott the company.

It’s interesting to note Wonkette had no problem with taking their money, but as soon as they pulled out, they became the worst pizza on earth, and evidently developed homophobia too! I’m surprised they weren’t called racists as well, but I guess since Wonkette seems to only hire white people ….

You can see screen grabs of Wonkette’s tweets here.

The bottom line is this, within the confines of one business day, a whole bunch of good and decent people used Twitter to educate corporate America about a vile group of nasty democrats, and corporate America responded responsibly.

What really struck me was, unlike the strong-arm tactics we have witnessed lately by union thugs nationwide, no one was threatening companies or suggesting boycotts. People on Twitter simply showed these companies the content of the website, and it was on!

Other things started to happen as well, particularly with Papa Johns and Huggies. A whole bunch of people suddenly got hungry for Papa Johns Pizza, and Dana Loesch pointed out that diapers ain’t cheap, and people should go to the store, load up the family truckster with Huggies, and take them to the nearest shelter that helps women with babies.

Thursday morning people were reminding others that food banks are always looking for Starkist Tuna packed in water. Having volunteered in a soup kitchen, I can attest to that myself. Something tells me a lot of shelters are going to benefit from this. Next time you go to the grocery store stock up and take some to the local shelter. Put some in your own pantry as well.

Something else that was just plain awesome, a real hero went out and bought the web domain http://jackstuef.com/ when you click on it, it redirects you to the National Down Syndrome Society’s donation page!

Early on people were tweeting messages to Sarah telling her not to worry, we had her back. Wednesday evening, Sarah sent this tweet:

Big thanks from the Palin family to folks on Twitter today who took a stand for children w/special needs. Happy Easter!Thank you #TrigsCrew

In case you wonder, the #TrigsCrew hashtag, thanks to my hero, John Nolte, is now the identifier that we’ll use on Twitter any time there is a call to arms to fight the kind of evil we saw from Wonkette!

A fitting way to celebrate the day thousands came together to stand up for what was right.

This tweet about Nolte kind of says it all:

Let the world know that @jjmnolte is a fully-functioning badass who can organize a community better than certain Presidents I know.

John, Derek, Dana and a cast of thousands renewed my faith in mankind, and made Wednesday a most wonderful day indeed.

There was a lot of reporting on this event. Far better writers than I.

John Nolte actually was quite prophetic by writing: Twitter Power: Mock the MSM and Watch Them Launch Phony Attacks against Sarah Palin. before the Wonkette story broke. This is a must read for everyone who wants to use Twitter as a tool to effect positive change.

Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion has a good look at the entire mess, and notes, as we have, this isn’t the first time the crapweasels at Wonkette have attacked Sarah and Trig.

Dana Loesch kept up with the timeline of advertisers jumping ship, which you can read here.

Speaking of which, here is a list of companies that have stood up for decency and dumped Wonkette.

As of this writing, 32 companies have taken steps to see their advertising never appears on that website again. Send them a thank you and buy their products. Mention #TrigsCrew in your tweet.

Here’s a partial list of Wonkette sponsors courtesy of Jersey-Texan-Mich-Mash. It includes those that have, and those that have not stopped advertising. There is also a link at the website to screen grabs of the Wonkette post, since they have scrubbed their website trying to act like it never happened, an old trick the Soviet Union was very good at. Check it all out here.

Life News has their take here.

Here’s what Voting Female has to say.

Ad Age had their say.

Greg Gutfield hammered author Jack Stuef and Wonkette as only he can.

Iowahawk [David Burge] tweeted this little diddy poking fun at Stuef’s kindergarten level artistic ability:

@iowahawkblog In which I attempt @wonkette-grade humor: portrait of Ken Layne and Jack Stuef http://bit.ly/fiswT

In closing, I have never been prouder of the American people. Just when you think evil is about to win, evil gets it’s ass kicked.

I would be remiss if I failed to point out that all democrats aren’t like the rabid base of the party. People like Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher went ballistic. Fox’s Kirstin Powers and even lefty Alan Colmes were quick to denounce Wonkette.

On the other hand, the GOP, as usual, was silent as one of their own was savaged. As Sarah says, the GOP has the fighting instincts of sheep.

There was one exception. Herman Cain was quick to join Trig’s Crew and stand with all of us. A class act indeed.

This incident proves that it only takes a relatively small, dedicated, determined group to change things for the better. There were no threats of violence, no vicious name calling. Just good and decent people out there pointing out a grave injustice. It made me realize how strong the people are. How good America really is. How bright our future can be.

It was truly, and completely A Most Wonderful Day.

Why Sarah Palin?

Posted by reagantman on April 22, 2011

from Liberty’s Lamp

Sarah Palin emerged upon the national stage as a popular governor from the state of Alaska at a time when the John McCain campaign was becoming dull and dreary. A war weary nation was becoming disenchanted with the Republican Party, particularly after the American Left was able to shift our focus from winning the War on Terror to carping over the Iraqi war when it was discovered that there were no weapons of mass destruction and the liberals found their way to distract the public by using this to attack the man who just brought us through the 9/11 crisis with flying colors.

Barack Obama was sending thrills down the legs of audiences and news media pundits with a message of hope and change. Speaking as a moderate and an outsider, the two year Senator from Illinois was convincing a willing public that he would govern in a fiscally responsible way and that he would restore our standing on the world stage – even going so far as to say he would sit down with our enemies and convince them to like us.

For far too long, the traditional news media controlled the information which influenced public opinion. This conduit of information once used by Thomas Payne and Samuel Adams to free a nation from the shackles of tyranny was now being used to convince the American people to unknowingly elect a president and a political party which would over the course of the first few years of the new administration establish a new tyranny, a soft tyranny as radio talk show host Mark Levin would go on to explain in his book Liberty and Tyranny.

The progressive movement, the Shadow Party and communists all worked cleverly behind the scenes to infiltrate academia and the pop culture. The children of the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s were playing outside unsupervised, drinking from garden hoses and riding their bicycles to the store without helmits while their parents worked hard jobs with long hours. They weren’t concerned with politics or current events beyond the surface level. The news was something to be absorbed, not questioned.

These children became the young people who would go on to colleges and universities where they were taught Marx and Lenin under the pretense that they were getting “all points of view.” Professors would glamorize collectivism, socialism and nihilism by contrasting it to a system which they delicately but meticulously painted as flawed and unfair. They capitalized on the government’s failure to execute the Vietnam War properly to cause students to lose faith in their institutions and to rebel against them. To bring a new order to fruition, it would first be necessary to destroy the old one.

Students began to believe they could change the world. Idealism was nurtured on college campuses. The disillusioned were now ready to be reinvigorated by a new American liberalism that saw the machinery of government as the solution to social injustice, unjust wars and a capitalistic system that made the lazy envious of the successful. The infiltration of the system had begun.

These students would graduate into the world with a sense that they were entitled to change it into their naïve image. Many went into the media and into law where the words spoken both over a television screen and written into newspapers and legal documents would slowly become theirs. As they moved up the chain and gained experience they found that by slanting news stories, collaborating on opinion pieces and uniting behind a common liberal cause that they could mold the information in such a way as to drive their opposition out of power.

The Constitution was no longer understand by its letter, but interpreted by those who would manufacture or embellish intent. The Founders created the basis for a self-reliant society where the states and local communities would be places with their own identities where problems unique to those places would be resolved through a partnership of the people and local government. Instead, the United States became a cookie cutter operation where all the states in one way or another apply the same solutions to social problems and economics.

Some, like Andrew Breitbart, are pointing out how these idealistic people become part of “what I call the Democrat media complex, the natural alliance of the Democratic Party, liberal politics in the mainstream media.” These people have used the media, academia and the legal field to cast a net so large and powerful over the nation that those who wanted no part of this are now being adversely affected by the political outcomes of today.

It used to be traditionalists could stay home and tend to their families, have their Sunday dinners and live productive lives while waving off the TV where anti-war protestors and cultural philosophers were worlds away and had no effect on the family, the dinner or the job. Now, everyone is affected by it whether they like it or not. The creeping vines of liberalism that once grew unnoticed under our political house have grown all around the sides and up to the roof.

How do you boil a frog without it noticing and jumping out of the pot? You cook it slowly, very slowly.

In the 1960’s, college kids sitting cross legged on the floor would complain about “the man” and the oppressive institutions. They asked authority to leave them alone and let them live and let live. Some dropped out. But many decided to follow progressivism. They believed they could change the system; and boy have they.

They infiltrated the system and became the system. It wasn’t good enough for these hippie freaks of the 1960’s and 1970’s to want everyone to be left alone. They had to use the legislative and judicial process to drag the regular folk out of our world with the hard work ethic and Sunday dinners and into their world totally against our will.

Today they codify special rights and privileges for those who have out of wedlock births, abortions or alternative sexual lifestyles at the expense of those who believe in traditional values. They have legalized their lifestyles at the expense of traditional lifestyles. They have become that which they complained about. The inmates have taken over the asylum; and we have come to find out that they run it worse than the ones they once complained about.

Today, the world is reversed. Traditionalists are the ones oppressed by “the man” and the institutions which once served them well. We are where they perceived themselves as being 50 years ago. The tables have turned.
We can learn a lot from them. Conservatives are not used to getting their hands dirty. We are small government people who never really got involved in the politics of social manipulation. We’d rather work in the private sector and turn to our churches, communities and local governments to work on solving problems from the ground up, not the top down.

There is a way out of this. It requires courage and a non-traditional approach. It requires us to understand their tactics, counter those tactics and turn those tactics against them. They want to marginalize? Then let’s marginalize. They want to curse and swear at us yet hold us to higher standard of civil discourse because they think they can shut us up by shaming us into thinking we’re racists and inciters of violence when it is really they who are projecting this false image onto us. Then lets not be afraid to speak our mind. If they don’t like our dialogue or discourse, too friggin bad.

It’s time for us conservatives to sit cross legged on the floor and demand that the man get off our back. It’s time for us to take on the establishment and clean up the institutions that have been corrupted by a Godless, immoral and intellectually bankrupt ideology. It’s time to infiltrate the system and the media. It’s time to take it back unapologetically and with no regard for what the media thinks of us. The traditional media must be destroyed. They are the first line of defense between us and the progressive Democrat establishment.

If we do it right, we can get the message out that it doesn’t matter if you’re “young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled,” you’ve been had. When George W. Bush was president, 9.4% of blacks were unemployed. Today the figure is 15.1%. How’s that hope and change working out for ya?

One day single mothers, minorities, gays and the poor will wake up and realize that their leaders – the people who won their vote by selling them the progressive agenda – have been in power now for years and their lives have only gotten worse. All the groups that make up the rainbow coalition and the progressive movement were asked to invest all their political capital into people like Barack Obama. They have been rooked.

They will find that even if we disagree with them on social issues and lifestyle choices, we believe all rights including theirs are God given, not government given. They will find that even when we disagree, we are tolerant. We don’t name call. We don’t violate the basic human rights of another in the name of social justice or because we want to punish people who aren’t like us. And, if we are protecting life in the womb, we are simply affording that unborn child the same protection we believe the Constitution provides for those very liberals who disagree with us. All Americans have the right to life and liberty.

We are now a European style socialist democracy. Less than half of Americans have jobs according to Mark Schumacher. U.S. households are now getting more in cash handouts from the government than they are paying in taxes for the first time since the Great Depression, Elizabeth MacDonald points out at FoxBusiness. 47% of Households Owe No Taxes, writes David Leonhardt at the New York Times.

Is this incompetence or is this being done on purpose? There are those who say that progressives are trying to collapse our system. They are not drilling for oil here at home the way we should be. They are devaluing our dollar. They are choking off our traditional lifestyles, yet they tiptoe around Muslims for some reason. It’s okay for liberals if Muslims build a Mosque near Ground Zero while the government removes prayer, crosses and nativity scenes from our public square.

Do I need a rug and a knowledge of which way east is before our politically correct government will be sensitive enough to allow me to pray?

Losing is not an option in 2012. This is our last stand. There may be some debate on the Republican side as to who should lead that fight, but remember what was happening to the conservative movement the day before Sarah Palin was selected as the VP nominee and think about what happened the day after. That should tell you everything you need to know about how damn close the progressives thought they were.

They thought they had it made; that Obama would slide in on a wave of popular support and govern with the authority of a dictator against a demoralized and defeated opposition. Everything that has been done to Sarah Palin has been done because she represented a road block, a threat, a reviving force for the conservative movement at a time when the liberals least needed it. We were not demoralized and our defeat was simply an electoral one.

Sarah Palin was the unexpected traffic the Left hit after a century of driving to Utopia. They were right around the corner and they could smell it. But she got in the way. She was the speed bump that stopped the Left from getting even further than they are now.

The progressives would have continued boiling the frog slowly, but they got excited about Barack Obama and turned the heat up just a little to fast. That quick burst of heat and that impatient jubilation on their part also gave us the Tea Party.

So here we are. We have an army in the Tea Party and a leader in Sarah Palin. Some may think we are leaderless, but that’s because some just haven’t accepted her yet. In all fairness, though, she hasn’t yet asked us to be our leader.

We know that if we don’t take it back, revive, restore and renew it now, we will probably never get another chance. We know that if we botch this one, there is no next time. We know that this is a must win. It’s do or die. “We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

It’s a big burden. Asking Sarah Palin to take on the weight of the world after all she has been through is asking a lot of her. Asking the Tea Party to have confidence in Sarah Palin is asking a lot of them. But the game is not won by worrying, thinking or fearing. It’s won by acting.

If she accepts that role and the movement takes what it may think is a risk and accepts her as our leader, mark my words right here and right now. We will win.

No risk. No reward.

This is not the time to nominate a safe choice. Nor is it the time to destroy the Republican Party during the nomination process. We must respect each other and our differences. Criticism must be focused like a laser beam on Obama, not each other. During the GOP nomination process, may the best man or woman win. The media, the punditry and the pollsters should never decide who our nominee is. We should!

Some may not think they can accept the outcome of a nomination process that gives us Sarah Palin, but think of the alternative. Who out there is the one? If you have someone that you support and trust as much as I support and trust Sarah Palin, stick with them. But if you don’t, join us. It will be a nerve-racking ride, but it will be fun. Following Sarah Palin is a thrill of a lifetime. It is the same thrill we had when Ronald Reagan was on his way in the late 1970’s.

Believe it. Believe that we can once again be that shining city on a hill. It will take a unity of purpose and a unity of vision. Picture it. Picture Sarah Palin with a running mate that unites our movement and revives the Republican Party by rallying us like she did in Madison Wisconsin. If you can take the leap of faith, you are ready to take back our country. If you are courageous enough to stand behind Sarah Palin and take on the arrows that will fly from the media, we will win.

If we have her back the whole way, she can succeed.

If you imagine Sarah Palin as the Republican nominee and it bothers you, it means you either a) have another candidate you believe strongly in, b) are afraid, c) are tainted by the negativity the media has been pushing about her, d) are an establishment Republican or e) are an out and out liberal. This does not make you a bad person. It makes you someone we can help (okay, we can’t help the liberal – but the rest of you yes). Borrow our confidence and we will revive and restore America.

The army is growing. We must continue growing it. Sarah Palin may have great leadership skills, but she cannot do it without legions of us. We are going to have to take on the press, an incumbent president and a Democrat Party machine that is merciless. They are fighting a force that wants to destroy us. We can only beat them with sheer numbers, brute rhetorical force, focus and unity of purpose.
