Discussing Governor Palin; Patrick’s World USA Interview

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 16, 2011

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

Last night, I was interviewed about Governor Palin on Patrick’s World USA Blog Talk Radio Show. Patrick is a great host and made sure he covered several important topics in just 30 minutes of airtime. We discussed the frenzy over Governor Palin’s emails which are serving only to show what a dedicated governor she was; Frank Bailey’s anti-Palin book, a complete flop, The Undefeated, the soon-coming film about Governor Palin’s stellar career in public service; the mainstream media’s obsession with President Obama and commitment to his re-election; and the 2012 race for the presidency which is starting to take off.

I come in at the 11:23 mark. Enjoy:

Gov. Palin on Freedom Watch: “Love to Give White House Fits”

Posted by Ron Devito on June 16, 2011

“I would love to give the White House fits and give solutions to America’s problems,” Governor Palin said tonight during an interview with Judge Napolitano on his Fox Business show Freedom Watch from her home studio in Wasilla, Alaska. “This is not about Sarah Palin. What does the middle class desire in government? They want Government to get out of the way,” she said midway through the interview.


Judge Napolitano opened the interview asking Gov. Palin if she felt vindicated knowing that “there was no there there” in the 24,000 released emails and that it “showed you hard at work.” She answered that press coverage shows their priorities are skewed. “I hope those who read the emails got to learn about oil and gas policy, energy independence, fish and game, the Second Amendment, why I opposed the stimulus plan…between having my personal emails hacked, and a former staffer hoarding five years of emails to put out-of-context in a book, I have nothing to hide.”


On Congressman Weiner’s resignation, Judge Napolitano asked if Gov. Palin thought Congress was right to demand his resignation or if the people of Brooklyn and Queens were entitled to have, “even a pervert representing them” if they so chose. “They are entitled to have someone like Weiner if that is what they really, truly want, but they deserve better.” Gov. Palin said he should have resigned immediately, as his actions “rendered him impotent,” eliciting a hearty laugh from the Judge.


When asked if Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is prepared to be President, Gov. Palin said “she is prepared,” and touted Bachmann’s Tea Party credentials, and “common-sense conservatism.”


“Anybody but Obama,” Gov. Palin said emphatically. Judge Napolitano asked Gov. Palin if she ever envisions herself in a debate like the one earlier this week featuring several 2012 candidates. “Once in a while, I do she said. It’s natural. What I want to see is GOP contenders call one another out on their records…Obama was not vetted by his party [and the press],” she said. “I would want to know if someone changed their spots” and why.


Judge Napolitano said that a 2012 Presidential run by Gov. Palin would be a game-changer and give the White House fits. “I would love to give the White House fits and give solutions to America’s problems,” she said.


The Judge asked Gov. Palin if she thought any of the 2012 contenders were the “genuine article.” “There’s lots of genuine articles who understand common-sense conservatism, and free market values – some declared and some not.” Judge Napolitano pressed further, asking “what if the GOP chose a big government Republican?”


“We have to make sure a nominee surfaces who supports smaller, smarter government. Even so, things cannot get any worse under a Republican administration. Anybody but Obama.”


Gov. Palin concluded the interview saying that she supports Speaker of the House John Boehner’s resolution on Libya. “Congress should stop Obama from engaging in a war a) we can’t afford, and b) he has no consent for.” She further stated that bombing combatants is not a support role, but is engaging in hostilities. But, Gov. Palin expressed her preference that Libya be resolved by Congress, not by the judicial system.

To Defend or Not Defend Gov. Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 16, 2011

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

Sonnie Johnson has written an excellent article at ThyBlackMan.com. In it, she expresses why she, a Governor Palin supporter who appears in The Undefeated, refuses to defend her. This piece needs to be read by every person who loves this country and what it represents. Read the article, and then read my comments below.

Johnson writes:

But, I will not defend Sarah Palin. Since announcing my really insignificant role in an amazing story, I’ve been asked to defend Palin against Romney, Paul, Bauchman (sic), and Cain. I’ve been asked to explain why I would vote for a moron. I’ve been told I’m pulling for a quitter. I’ve been threatened with, “You’ve only going to give us four more years of Obama.” (And yes, I consider that a threat.) And I ignore them all. I do not and will not judge ANY candidate on what the media says, what the Republican establishment says, or random people across the Social Networking world chime in.

It’s really very simple. It’s WHWD. What would He, the Hood, Hip-Hop, and History would do.

I will DEFEND Capitalism. (Hip-Hop) The one trait I love about Sarah Palin is the one no one talks about. Her main promise, above everything else, is to get the hell out of my life. I would love a President who didn’t believe it was their job to create jobs. A president who isn’t scared to let the free market work because SHE believes in Free Markets. And isn’t afraid to spend her time taking on the Corruption in Washington, instead of burdening the American People with more regulations. A President who doesn’t believe in punishing the rich, but creating a level playing field where every American, connected or not, can obtain and build wealth.

I will DEFEND Faith. (He) Are we a Christian nation? Were we endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights? Are we an exceptional country where a boy born in Hawaii with Bi-Racial parents can become President or a girl from Alaska who grew up fishing and hunting could change the face of the Republican Party? I don’t see the faith in waiting your turn or playing the political game that requires you to watch your state burn to keep your position. Faith comes in moments of darkness, where you stand alone, and make decisions that require sacrifice. Whether it’s in a hotel room out of state with the knowledge your child will be born Special Needs or it’s in front of cameras designed to record your downfall, can you put your heart above what other’s say is best. That’s Faith.

I will DEFEND our Constitution. (History) We are a nation of laws. Those laws are set in place by the greatest document ever written; which brings us back to getting out of my life. I don’t want a President who can’t shoot a gun because, more than likely, they won’t have a problem with taking away my guns. I want a President that understands States Rights, like when it comes to lack of an Energy Policy. A President that has sent HER son off to war and understands the Constitution is in constant need of defense. A President that sees her interference in my life through the Patriot Act is a violation of my Civil Liberties. (Can we say 4th amendment?)

I will DEFEND Freedom. (Hood) I will defend my right to have a Reagan like Revolution during my lifetime. I am craving a President that actually puts the responsibility of Government back into the hands of the People. In my community, this is the only strategy that will work to bring about any real change. And I refuse to engage anyone who says the People are too STUPID, UNSOPHISTICATED, or POLITICALLY IGNORANT to govern themselves, so only this politician can fix it. This nation wasn’t built on POLITICIANS, it was built on the STUPID, UNSOPHISTICATED, and POLITICALLY IGNORANT AMERICANS who believed that through their creator all thing were possible. Or with the CONSTITUTION as there (sic) guide AMERICA would always be the land of the FREE. Or if I just work hard enough, I can go from rags to riches.

Sarah Palin represents these things and that’s why I will not defend HER. She is a grown woman who, on more than one occasion, has proven she can defend herself. And with the pillars she represents, she doesn’t need defenders; SHE NEEDS LEADERS TO STAND BESIDE HER. As Andrew Breitbart pointed out in “Undefeated”, the Republican Establishment men won’t defend her. As evident by numerous chances, the women’s groups won’t defend her. The general public accepts the lies, so they won’t defend her. Yet, she still manages to come out swinging and having more of an impact than her haters can handle. So, I’ll do my part and DEFEND those things that matter most to me. And if that means I see Sarah in November 2012, I’ll smile knowing I didn’t fight for a person, I fought for an idea.

Read the full article here.

Sonnie hits on something that some people have yet to grasp: though the person matters, it really is more about the idea than the person. I have made some observations over the last three years about many staunch supporters of the President. Their aversion to everyone who disagrees with him is based on emotion rather than policy; they hurl personal insults at Governor Palin and her supporters because they can’t deal in substance; and they often cannot tell you even one positive thing that has resulted from President Obama’s time in office. The sad truth is that for many of them, President Obama deserves their unwavering support simply because they are enamored with the new look he’s brought to Washington.

I have always said that I stand with Governor Palin because she is right on all the right issues. I have always maintained that as long as she stands on the right side of right, I will stand with her. I have maintained that the ideas for which she fights so vehemently–lower taxes, limited government, the Constitution, national security, fiscal sanity, the sanctity of human life, job creation, the United States military–are ideas that should be embraced by all Americans. There’s nothing radical or extreme about any of those things. So I will continue to stand with her.

Sonnie Johnson loves all that America is, and that surpasses a particular person. She says she isn’t defending a person but an idea. Governor Palin personifies that idea. I submit, therefore, that she is in fact defending Governor Palin, for in defending what’s right, she’s defending those who have laid it all on the line to fight for what’s right.

I, too, will defend right; therefore, I refuse to not defend Governor Palin, currently America’s strongest, most consistent, most fearless voice for right.

Media Unload On Bachman Gets Underway-The Bloodletting Won’t Be A Pretty Sight

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 16, 2011

Michele Bachman is the media latest flavor of the week  republican-Herman Cain seems to have been dumped as quickly as he was boosted up. Some Palin fans believe this is all part of a Lame Steam Media plot to either keep Palin out of the race or, if she does enter Bachman is seen as a useful “stalking horse” taking votes from Palin for the media’s true favorite Mitt Romney.
Be that as it may or may not what is indisputable is that, should Bachman actually get the presidential, or more likely vice-presidential slot the current stroking would, immediately upon nomination, turn into a horrendous witch hunt, like Palin has been subjected to for over two years.
 
The difference will be that Palin’s two years of torment will be, in Bachman’s case, squeezed into the four months or so of the campaign. It won’t be a pretty sight and Bachman can have no idea what would be in store for her, her husband and her children. Not only her genetic children but all those foster children will have every moment of their lives scrutinized intensely. If Palin’s relatively small brood was dragged through the media mill heaven only knows what the media will do with the over 20 foster children whose lives will be thrown open and every controversial thing they have ever done will be sheeted home to Bachman’s parenting.
Some in the media can’t hold back and the digging has started. here is a bit from the first up attacks-this from The Daily Beast article titled “Michele Bachman’s unrivalled extremism”( how’s that for a starters gun signal of what is to come?)
 
A few dozen people showed up at the town hall for the April 9 event, and Bachmann greeted them warmly. But when, during the question and answer session, the topic turned to gay marriage, Bachmann ended the meeting 20 minutes early and rushed to the bathroom. Hoping to speak to her, Arnold and another middle-aged woman, a former nun, followed her. As Bachmann washed her hands and Arnold looked on, the ex-nun tried to talk to her about theology. Suddenly, after less than a minute, Bachmann let out a shriek. “Help!” she screamed. “Help! I’m being held against my will!”
 
*******************************************************************
 
And this from the vicious Little Green Footballs site 
It’s been frustrating to watch the media suddenly falling all over themselves to proclaim Michele Bachmann (R-Mars) a “serious candidate,” because I’ve been keeping track of her sheer lunacy for years, and Bachmann is so extreme she makes even Rick Santorum look sane.”

The New Republic, after dragging her husband into the fray provides this nugget:
 
In 2004, Bachmann gave a speech warning that same-sex marriage would lead to schoolchildren being indoctrinated into homosexuality. She wanted everyone to know, though, that she doesn’t hate gay people. “Any of you who have members of your family in the lifestyle, we have a member of our family that is,” she said. “This is not funny. It’s a very sad life. It’s part of Satan, I think, to say that this is gay.”

PZ Meyer,who I have a real distaste for at the execrable Pharyngula site where arrogance of a level I have never seen before resides gets straight into it:

“Clever and Insane 
When Ronald Reagan was president, I thought we’d hit bottom and could not possibly get worse. When George W. Bush was president, I was astonished that we’d sunk even lower, but hoped that this was the worst we could get. President Michele Bachmann is the nightmare that exceeds even that.”

This is just a taste from those media people who are blowing their cover and jumping the gun from the cover story they have been pushing  “A Romney/Bachman team will be formidable” And “Bachman comes out from Palin’s shadow and  closes the door on Palin.” The mask has slipped and the worst thing that could ever happen to Bachman and her family would be to actually  receive either nomination.

Palin on the other hand has withstood everything that could possibly be thrown at her and is Teflon coated and the only potential nominee who could spend all the campaign discussing the issues without the distractions of the dirt the dumpster divers would dig up on Romney and his religion and Bachman and whatever mass of sensational stuff they would uncover-whether true or not.

Watch as the media uses Michele Bachman against Sarah Palin

Posted by joshpainter on June 16, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
For those who have been paying attention, there’s been a radical change in the way the media treats Michele Bachmann. It was not so long ago that the Congresswoman was being painted with the same brush and texture they applied to Sarah Palin. Both Republican women were characterized as “stupid,” “ignorant,” “crazy” and “right wing extremists.”

But since the Minnesotan announced the formation of an exploratory committee around the end of March, the media narrative about her has morphed from “as horrible as Palin” into “not quite as terrible as Palin” and finally into “very much preferable to Palin.” No, this is not just prejudice as a Palin supporter speaking, and it’s not simply a conspiracy theory.

Don’t believe us? A search engine provides all the evidence required for a demonstration of what we’re talking about. Chris Matthews is pretty high up on the mailing list to receive DNC talking points, so we’ll see how the meme has morphed from the point of view he expresses as the host of MSNBC’s “Hardball.”

Matthews used the terms “zombie-like” and “Moonie-like” to describe Bachmann on November 24, 2010 and implied that she was some sort of “Manchurian Candidate”:

“Look at her eye contact. I asked her when we had her on election night if she’s under hypnosis. She doesn’t answer the question. She looks straight ahead in that kind of zombie-like manner, like she’s waiting for somebody to flash a card, like in ‘Manchurian Candidate.’ I mean, I don’t know what her state is.”

Now here’s Matthews January 19, 2011 calling Bachmann a “screamer” and “pretty close to a nut case”:

“This kind of talk from Michele Bachmann. I don’t know why she’s allowed to be an extremist, and everybody is coaxing on the Right, Republicans saying the President should move to the center and be reasonable and moderate, where she’s allowed to be out there as a screamer, and in many cases pretty close to a nut case.”

By April 5, 2011, however, “Tweety” Matthews is chirping a slightly softer tune. He says that Bachmann is preparing seriously for a presidential campaign, calls her “exciting” and “attractive,” mentions her politically appealing family life, and even predicts she will be a force to be reckoned with in Iowa. But that’s not the half of it. Very strangely, Matthews made the claim that “we created her here,” meaning on his MSNBC show, and when guest Jonathan Alter attacks Bachmann, Matthew rises to her defense:

“Michelle Bachmann, female candidate, may run with all of the boring guys if Sarah Palin doesn’t get in… One exciting, hard right, attractive candidate against four boring guys. I think she’s got a good shot at winning that Iowa caucus. Just because she’s a really interesting entry right now.”

[…]

What about her personal story? Forget the ideology for a minute. She’s had a big family, five kids she’s raised, something like fifteen foster kids she’s taken in.”

By June 14, 2011, Matthews had come 180 degrees on Bachmann. Gone are the slurs, replaced with such praise as “poised, informed and serious.” Suddenly, “a star” is born. Her performance in Monday night’s GOP debate gets rated as “great” by Matthews, who asks, “Could she be the candidate that Sarah Palin was supposed to be?” NewsBuster Scott Whitlock, noticing the sea change in Matthews’ treatment of Bachmann, questions the talk show host’s motives, asking, “What is Chris Matthews up to?”

“Maybe the biggest story from last night was not Romney’s cool or Pawlenty’s retreat, but the emergence of a star, Michele Bachmann. She was, of course, created here. She came off as poised, informed, that’s right, Gene, poised, informed and serious. Could she be the candidate that Sarah Palin was supposed to be?”

[…]

“First of all, what did you think of her performance last night? Because we all thought she was great.”

[…]

“And she is what she is. I’ve always given her credit for not being, for example, a birther, who plays on cheap shots.”

In answer to Scott’s question, what Matthews is up to, we believe, is playing the left’s latest strategy, whether it comes down from high as a DNC talking point or was “brainstormed” on some newer, more secure revision of JournoList, to play Michele Bachmann against Sarah Palin. The goal is to push Bachmann so hard as to discourage Sarah Palin from getting in the presidential race, and failing that, to make sure that Bachmann knocks her out. Matthews is not acting alone. All of MSNBC is playing, and across the media, in fact, we are seeing a kinder, gentler approach to Rep. Bachmann.

We’re not the only ones having such thoughts. Tom Tillotson of Florida Political Press saw this coming over ten days ago, before the media’s transition was complete:

Naturally, being of the tea party mindset and having absolutely no trust in the media, my conspiratorial juices, which I like to refer to as skeptical intrigue, begin to flow.

[…]

As for Palin, pundits on the right are fond of saying that the media will always let you know who they’re most afraid of by looking at who they go at the hardest. And there can be no doubt that Sarah Palin is that person. Just look at the frothing at the mouth taking place this week over her bus tour.

Yet, compare that to the cordial treatment that Michele Bachmann receives and it just doesn’t make sense. Unless the media has an agenda. An agenda aimed at the one they fear the most.

Then it hits me like a bolt of lightening!

I submit that the media is capitalizing on Michele Bachmann’s prominence in an attempt to supplant Sarah Palin as the queen of conservatism. By indirectly promoting Bachmann, which they do by not going at her with both guns blazing, the goal is to knock Palin from her perch and replace her with someone they do not lie awake at night exasperating over.

[…]

Within the tea party movement, as admired as she is, Bachmann just doesn’t quite have the star power of Sarah Palin. Sure, she’s a prolific fundraiser and her negatives are nowhere near Palin’s, but at the end of the day, unless something significant happens, she’s going to have her hands full trying to unseat Barack Obama.

And the media knows this, hence their willingness to play her against Sarah Palin.

Can you see what’s going on here? We certainly hope Sarah Palin sees it. Given her sharp political instincts, we are of the opinion that she may well be aware of it. All the more reason, we submit, for her to get into the race and get in soon. Please governor, don’t let them get away with this. You have proven them wrong and thwarted their plans many times in your political career. You know what is at stake here. One of the many reasons why we support you and believe in you so earnestly is that you are a fighter. If you get in this fight, you know there are millions of us who will be in your corner, and unlike a few untrustworthy souls, we will not abandon you. You can kick their butts. And they’re just asking for it.
