“The Undefeated” Film Premieres in June

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 24, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – MotivationTruth

There’s breaking news tonight. A new film about Governor Palin will premiere in June. This certainly appears to indicate Game On. While those intent on doing the Governor harm further embarrass themselves with disloyalty, mischaracterizations, and outright lies, she has put her stamp of approval on a film that will shed more light on the truth about her political career, her record, and her credentials, you know–the things that matter.

Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics reports:

Shortly after Republicans swept last November to a historic victory in which Sarah Palin was credited with playing a central role, the former Alaska governor pulled aside her close aide, Rebecca Mansour, to discuss a hush-hush assignment: Reach out to conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon with a request. Ask him if he would make a series of videos extolling Palin’s governorship and laying to rest lingering questions about her controversial decision to resign from office with a year-and-a-half left in her first term. It was this abdication, Palin knew, that had made her damaged goods in the eyes of some Republicans who once were eager to get behind her potential 2012 presidential campaign.

The response was more positive than Palin could have hoped for. He’d make a feature-length movie, Bannon told Mansour, and he insisted upon taking complete control and financing it himself — to the tune of $1 million.

The fruits of that initial conversation are now complete. The result is a two-hour-long, sweeping epic, a rough cut of which Bannon screened privately for Sarah and Todd Palin last Wednesday in Arizona, where Alaska’s most famous couple has been rumored to have purchased a new home. When it premieres in Iowa next month, the film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin’s prospective presidential campaign — an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won’t run.

Bannon, a former naval officer and ex-Goldman Sachs banker, sees his documentary as the first step in Palin’s effort to rebuild her image in the eyes of voters who may have soured on her, yet might reconsider if old caricatures begin to fade. The film will also appeal to staunch Palin supporters who have long celebrated her biting rhetoric and conservative populism yet know little about her record in Alaska and have perhaps written her off as presidential material.

“This film is a call to action for a campaign like 1976: Reagan vs. the establishment,” Bannon told RealClearPolitics. “Let’s have a good old-fashioned brouhaha.”

RealClearPolitics was recently given an exclusive screening of a rough cut of the now finished film, which Bannon designed, in part, to help catapult Palin from the presidential afterthought she has become in the eyes of many pundits directly to the front lines of the 2012 GOP conversation.

[…]

Although Palin is not interviewed directly, the film features on-camera interviews and commentaries from 10 Alaskans who played different roles in her political rise, as well as six Lower 48 denizens who defend her in more visceral terms, including prominent conservative firebrands Mark Levin, Andrew Breitbart and Tammy Bruce.

Divided into three acts, the film makes the case that despite the now cliched label, Palin was indeed a maverick who confronted the powerful forces lined up against her to achieve wide-ranging success in a short period of time. The second part of the film’s message is just as clear, if more subjective: that Sarah Palin is the only conservative leader who can both build on the legacy of the Reagan Revolution and bring the ideals of the tea party movement to the Oval Office.

[…]

In the last couple of months, Palin has delivered major policy speeches, hired a chief of staff, made a well-publicized foreign trip that included a visit with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, all the while remaining consistent about her vow — first made just days after the 2008 campaign ended — that she would “crash through” any of the “open doors” that might lead to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Bannon intends to premiere the film in Iowa late next month before expanding the release to New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. After the initial rollout in the four early voting states, the filmmaker will eventually release it to somewhere between 50 and 100 markets nationwide.

[…]

If she does decide to run, “The Undefeated” will be the key element to her initial coming-out party. The film’s impending release — and the frenzied media attention that it is sure to generate — will serve as a vivid wake-up call that despite the many obstacles in front of her, Palin’s entry into the race would turn the campaign on its head in an instant, just as it did in 2008.

As she mulls her decision in the coming weeks, the other Republican candidates in the field will be left to prepare for a hibernating grizzly who appears poised to rise up once again.

It just might be that time!

Liberals Fire Weak Shots and Palin Nukes Them

Posted by reagantman on May 24, 2011

-from Unsheathed

The Left thought hit books by Frank Bailey, Geoffrey Dunn, Joe McGinness and even Levi Johnston were going to be the death blow for Sarah Palin. These books were timed for an expected presidential run by Palin. They are being released now as candidates announce for 2012. These poor saps never saw it coming. Palin has been building a nuke and they are about to be obliterated.

Real Clear Politics reports:

Shortly after Republicans swept last November to a historic victory in which Sarah Palin was credited with playing a central role, the former Alaska governor pulled aside her close aide, Rebecca Mansour, to discuss a hush-hush assignment: Reach out to conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon with a request. Ask him if he would make a series of videos extolling Palin’s governorship and laying to rest lingering questions about her controversial decision to resign from office with a year-and-a-half left in her first term.

[…]

Though she did not have any editorial role in the project, Palin facilitated access for Bannon and his film crew to key Alaskan defenders who were involved with the major achievements of her administration, and the filmmaker spent several weeks in the 49th state gathering archival film and conducting research and interviews for the project. He and his team took extraordinary measures to keep their endeavor secret.

When they requested from Alaska’s TV news stations footage that was shot during Palin’s political rise, they asked for additional tapes containing subject matters that were irrelevant to their project, in order not to raise suspicions. And rather than staying at the well-appointed Hotel Captain Cook in Anchorage, they instead took up temporary residence in low-key motels.

“We shot on the weekends, and we shot in locations that weren’t being used during those weekends,” Bannon said. “I did it with a handpicked crew of people I know and trust, and we were able to stay under the radar. The planning for the secrecy of this took many, many weeks.”

The film is titled “The Undefeated.” This is clearly the ultimate political “Manhattan Project.” The liberals didn’t bring a knife to a gun fight. They brought their heavy artillery and Palin still has superior fire power.



This is nothing short of pure genius on Palin’s part. She knew what the big boys in the media were planning. Expect this movie to be an electro-magnetic pulse that basically shuts down the liberal meatgrinder on her.

Palin didn’t retweet. She really did re-load!

Who Would Believe Frank Bailey?

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 24, 2011

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

Frank Bailey’s book, Blind Allegiance, a so-called tell-all about Governor Palin, came out today. As I noted here, I esteem the book a tell-nothing. Who can believe anything this guy has to say? He worked for her, and if she is truly the monster he makes her out to be, why didn’t he leave? Why did he seek further employment with SarahPAC? If he wants to be taken seriously, why did he go to two known anti-Palin bloggers to write his book? What, no reputable people to choose from for his hit piece? I wonder why. If he’s not in this for the money or fame, why has he been doing his rounds today, going on MSNBC and The View, of all places? Tonight I’m sure he’s regretting his stop into the Fox News studio; Hannity just handed him his tail on a plate.

Frank Bailey has himself been chastised for a lack of ethical behavior, yet he wants us to see Governor Palin as unethical. She, of course, was cleared again and again of bogus ethics complaints. His track record is not so stellar.

SarahPAC employees have pushed back against Bailey’s book. Via Politico:

The book won’t be out until Tuesday, but Sarah Palin’s team is already pushing back hard against former aide Frank Bailey’s “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin,” telling POLITICO that the purported tell-all “belongs on the fiction shelves.”

In their first comments about the book since several media outlets obtained a leaked manuscript in February, two sources close to Palin disputed several of the anecdotes in the book, including his claims of illegal coordination with the Republican Governors Association and that he has seen Palin’s deposition in the so-called “Troopergate” case, which is sealed. Palin’s camp also insists that some of the Palin emails printed in the manuscript are framed to distort events — for example, the emails Bailey includes to show the former Alaska governor’s reaction to her oldest daughter’s pregnancy are about rumors that circulated before Bristol actually became pregnant.

Palin aides also pointed to previous ethics charges against Bailey during his service to the ex-governor’s administration, as well as an ongoing investigation by the state attorney general’s office over the emails Bailey included in the book. Additionally, SarahPAC spokesman Tim Crawford highlighted Bailey’s book cover, which is a modified image. The original photo was of Palin standing next to other governors at an RGA event, not next to Bailey.

“Frank Bailey was the only member of the Palin administration to be found to have acted unethically – twice,” Crawford said. “He is currently under investigation again by the state attorney general. Then, as the administrator of certain email accounts, he acted unethically by appropriating account information he was entrusted to protect.”

“Gov. Palin suspended Bailey and refused to hire Bailey when he sought a position on her vice presidential campaign staff and later with SarahPAC. Mr. Bailey has an axe to grind and abandoned truth in his book. The cover of the book tells this story, two completely different photos twisted and Photoshopped to create a fraudulent image. The book belongs on the fiction shelves.”

Bailey based much of his book on emails between Palin and her aides from during her time as governor. Palin’s team did not provide any evidence that the emails Bailey pointed to in the leaked manuscripts are doctored or inaccurate, saying that the former governor did not hang on to roughly 60,000 emails that Bailey had access to as a member of her staff. But they contend that Bailey is a disgruntled former staffer with an axe to grind and motivated by the ability to make money.

Both Crawford and another Palin source told POLITICO that Bailey tried unsuccessfully to secure a job with SarahPAC.

Bailey co-wrote the book with two bloggers from the anti-Palin site Mudflats and struggled to get the 456-page manuscript published before it was leaked to the media. Prior to writing the book with bloggers Ken Morris and Jeanne Devon, Bailey approached now-Palin aide Rebecca Mansour about writing what [sic] book. Mansour, then a blogger for the Palin fan site conservatives4Palin, turned him down — though she says at that point, Bailey pitched it as a positive account of the former governor.

Frank Bailey simply isn’t believable. His actions don’t add up. No one with an ounce of integrity would believe him, especially since no one with an ounce of integrity would do what he’s doing, the way he’s doing it. My final note is this: Frank Bailey professes to be a Christian, yet he says he hasn’t spoken to Governor Palin since 2009. What happened to the Scripture that says if one has a problem with a brother or sister, he should go to that person to discuss it? I obviously missed the verse about securing a book deal and embarking on the media circuit.

“The Undefeated” to Document Gov. Palin’s Record in IA Debut

Posted by Ron Devito on May 24, 2011

A full-length feature film, The Undefeated documents Governor Palin’s record and answers questions about her resignation that continue to perturb some potential supporters, Scott Conroy, Real Clear Politics reported tonight. The project commenced over six months ago when Gov. Palin approached Rebecca Mansour, a close aide of hers with the directive to request Stephen K. Bannon, a conservative film maker produce a video series. Bannon agreed on one condition: that it be a full-length feature movie and that he finance the $1 million cost.

Gov. Palin and her husband Todd viewed a rough cut version of the two-hour film in Arizona last Wednesday, according to Conroy’s report.

When it premieres in Iowa next month, the film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin’s prospective presidential campaign — an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won’t run.

Real Clear Politics also got a copy of the two-hour rough cut.

Much of the film maker’s work was secretly conducted in Alaska over many weeks, Conroy reported. The movie is divided into three parts and will be produced in two versions. “An unrated edition will contain some obscene anti-Palin language and imagery, while the other is targeted to a general audience and will seek a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America.”

The movie has received rave reviews from Governor Palin, Tim Crawford, Treasurer, SarahPAC, and Rebecca Mansour who commissioned it:

SarahPAC’s treasurer Tim Crawford confirmed that “The Undefeated” was a hit with Palin.

“The governor thought it was great,” Crawford said.

Bannon’s film also resonated with members of Palin’s staff, including Mansour.

“I’m a huge fan of Steve’s work,” Mansour said in a statement to RCP on Tuesday. “His film on President Reagan, ‘In the Face of Evil,’ is my favorite documentary, and his ‘Generation Zero’ was a rallying cry for the Tea Party movement early on. I think his new film really captures the essence of Governor Palin’s stewardship of Alaska, and I think people will be really surprised by it. It shatters so many false stereotypes because it shows what she actually accomplished as governor. You can’t leave it thinking the same way about Sarah Palin.”

The movie will debut in Iowa with subsequent release to New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. Thence, it is to be released to between 50 and 100 markets nationwide. Copies of The Undefeated may also be gifted to SarahPAC donors.
