“Palin Slams Rick Perry’s Record”pretty much puts an end to the outrageous rumours that she’ll endorse Rick Perry”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on August 5, 2011

Ian Lazaran at Conservatives4Palin has this report up with the important links:


This re-tweet from Governor Palin should pretty much put an end to the outrageous rumors that she’ll endorse Rick Perry.  The great article from Whitney and PA4Palin re-tweeted by the Governor directly contrasts Governor Palin’s stellar record on debt and liabilities with the futile records of Mitt “peacetime” Romney and Rick Perry.  If Palin is endorsing Perry, why is she re-tweeting an article that slams his inability to control what Governor Palin has described as the “foundation of destruction?”
It’s also noteworthy that the article that Palin re-tweeted pretty much calls for her to run for the presidency.
This report is of course vital at many levels. As Lazaran advises it is another call for Palin to run from a significant activist. With Perry going so far as to contact key Republicans in South Carolina, after his similar exploratory conversations with Iowa Republicans means that his decision on entering the race, or not, is at tipping point.
Labor Day is clearly the key in all this and with Palin due to address a major Tea Party Meeting on September 3rd in Iowa, and her advice that she too will decide in “late August or early September” It appears,and this is my take on it that she has decided she will run.
If she was not going to run it seems odd that she would comment on an article which attacks what would be a main competitor, Romney and a possible competitor, Perry in a tweet which would be seen by hundreds of thousands and will of course be picked up by the media.
It is noteworthy that the media is turning their blowtorch on Perry, witness the articles about his poor grades in university which have just surfaced which are of course just the tiniest tip of the iceberg as to what they,the liberal media, will dredge up.
A significant article for which Little Blog On the Prairie and PennsylvaniansforPalin should be highly commended

Palin and Tea Party – joint terrorists?

Posted by villagejack on August 5, 2011

The Tea Party meeting that I attend starts off with a Pledge of Allegiance, followed by singing a patriotic song. The president discusses who the upcoming speakers will be, i.e. a House member or a Florida politician or a law officer, you know your basic radical types. The speaker is then introduced who will talk on a particular subject in the news, i.e. the turnpike, health care immigration issues, taxes etc. and then they open it up for questions and we go home. Now, granted, I don’t attend every meeting, so I assume they are not planning some terrorist activities on the nights I don’t attend, but I have been assured it is not the case.

On the other hand, if I attended a meeting of ACORN, or Planned Parenthood, or a meeting of Chicago community organizers, or any number of organizations founded by Saul Alinsky (the groups that helped Obama form his political ideals) it would probably be more exciting……exciting in the sense that the American way of life, as we know it, is wrong and needs to be changed.

The concept of terrorism may itself be controversial as it is often used by state authorities like Vice President Biden and Democrat Congressman Mike Doyle to delegitimize political opponents. The Tea Party is getting hit with how the media and other government officials have characterized Sarah Palin these past 3 years. Remember this January when she was immediately called a terrorist for her use of “in the crosshairs”. But I don’t see her or the Tea Parties leaving the scene anytime soon.

Investment Business Daily Editorial targets Palin?

Posted by villagejack on August 5, 2011

On August 1st Investment Business Daily editorial headlined: Tea Party, Fix Your Gaze On 2012.

The article ended with this quote and comment:

As Sun Tzu advised, “He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot will be victorious.” For the Tea Party, now is the time to lock and load and wait till next year.

The Tea Party House members are getting a lot of credit for changing the dynamics of the debt ceiling discussion. And rightly so, in face of stiff opposition from their leaders, the establishment GOP and the President they held on to their principals and were able to rule the day.

But the IBD quote used terminology directly attributable to Sarah Palin. When she was on the campaign trail to get Tea Party candidates elected in 2010, she used the now famous visual of “targeting” specific districts for potential takeover. The success of Tea Party candidates and Palin’s direct support to help them out proved to be a winning combination. We now have the possibility of a balanced budget amendment.

The Undefeated in Orlando

Posted by villagejack on August 5, 2011

Stephen Bannon produced a movie documentary called The Undefeated that opened at theaters across the country last Friday. In the movie he attempts to set the record straight on the character and substance of Sarah Palin. Many Americans get their news from tabloids or MTV in which Palin’s character is assassinated by actors and others who call her a bimbo. That in itself should upset most women. But in this movie she definitely came across as a women of substance, not the character portrayed by these actors: Matt Damon: called her an actor from a B grade movie. Damon played Jason Bourne, the super spy who had a lot of integrity. Much to the chagrin of movie goers, Damon is NOT Bourne. On the other hand. Palin was the Governor of Alaska who took on the political corruption and the big oil companies and won battles for the people living in that state. She constantly had approval rating in the 80 percentile. She was not simply an actor, she was the real “Bourne” of Alaskan politics. Tina Fey: had the fortunate circumstance of looking like Palin. After watching this movie of the real Palin, I came away thinking how small Fey looks now when we see the real Sarah in action…… mediating between opposing forces to come to positive policies that had oil and gas produced in the U.S. and not some Arab country. Does anyone really think that the character portrayed by Fey could have done that?

‘The Undefeated’: New Fire for the Dis-Couraged

Posted by joshpainter on August 5, 2011

– by Josh Painter

Here are some excerpts from an excellent blog post by an early Palin supporter who, for a number of reasons including the governor’s 2009 decision to resign, allowed that early enthusiasm to wane. We pick up her story at the Smart Girl summit in St. Louis, where a remark by Andrew Breitbart persuaded her to go to the screening at that event last weekend of “The Undefeated.”

The least I could do was sit and watch the film.

And so I did. And as I did, I found myself overcome with a very unexpected emotion: shame. As I relived her story, the relatively humble beginnings, the young mother who decided to get involved and then rose and met each challenge that came her way, the can-doer who won office repeatedly with odds stacked heavily against her, the fearless fighter who took on corruption, the wildly popular and successful Governor, the exhilarating and scrappy Vice Presidential candidate, I was reminded of all the reasons I’d admired her. And as I watched the absolute hatred and viciousness directed at her from all sides, the zeal with which many sought to take her down – yes, like the zebra set upon by the lions – I could not escape the realization that it was I who had let her down. Not personally. I am but one lowly fiscal conservative/social moderate/with libertarian leanings, far removed from her world, far from influential in any meaningful way. But I stopped standing up for her. And for the principles and values she’s fought so very hard for. I became complacent and allowed others to badmouth her and besmirch her character without so much as the slightest challenge, without any effort to persuade them to stop, take a step back, and consider any of it.

There may be many eunuchs in the GOP who’ve abandoned her to cover their own political backsides. But what does that make me? In many respects, Sarah Palin is me: She’s close to me in age, a PTA Mom, a Christian, a runner, a professional, a true believer in America and the principles upon which it was founded. The difference is, she’s a fighter. And I have been…a coward. Rather than following her lead and boldly exhibiting the courage of my convictions, I allowed myself to become discouraged – DIS-couraged. I’ve rationalized this by noting that in my line of work, and considering some of the career aspirations I possess, sticking my neck out and taking a clear stand could be dangerous. I have a daughter to support, a mortgage to pay, a house to try and keep from falling down. I can’t afford to take risks like that. I need that security. But at what cost?

I alluded to this in my second SGS11 recap blog – the recurring theme about each one of us having not only the ability but the responsibility to stand up and fight for the things we hold dear. Not for fame or glory or validation. But because it’s what’s right. I’m not certain of the movie’s run-time, but I do know that for much of it, I found myself fighting back tears. Because I am ashamed – I’m ashamed of my fellow human beings who’ve made it their life’s work to tear down and destroy those who dare fight for and take pride in our great nation. I’m ashamed of my fellow conservatives who’ve abandoned one of the greatest champions for the conservative cause because it was politically expedient to do so. And I’m ashamed of myself – for not fighting like a girl. For not fighting at all.

I haven’t yet figured out what this revelation will or should translate into in my life. I only know that I’m no longer comfortable sitting back and letting others do battle for me. So, to those who question whether “Undefeated” is worth a watch, my answer is, “Yes. Unless you lack the courage.”

[More]

It’s a long post, but more than worth the read. Does this story remind you of someone you know? If so, you need to get that person to a theater to see “The Undefeated.”
