Gov. Palin Discusses Gaddafi, 2012 Race on Hannity

Posted by Ron Devito on October 20, 2011

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight discussed the death of Libyan dictator Gaddafi and the 2012 presidential race on Sean Hannity’s TV show from her home studio in Wasilla, Alaska. Gov. Palin said she is glad Gaddafi is gone, but emphasized the importance of ensuring worse, more tyrannical, terrorist regime does not take over. She also made note of the left’s hypocrisy in praising Obama’s Libya war while decrying President Reagan’s airstrikes of 1986.


Shifting to 2012, Gov. Palin said she believed Herman Cain can keep his poll momentum going because he is not a politician, which is something people crave. “Herman Cain recognizes that it’s the permanent political class that got us into this mess, and we don’t need more of the same thinking that’s going to be the solution,” she said. While Gov. Palin praised Cain’s authenticity, candor, and “getting the ball rolling on reforming taxes,” she said corporate income tax foments crony capitalism and that is one aspect of his “9-9-9 Plan” she would change.


Hannity asked Gov. Palin about Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry. “Newt has been in the trenches. He has seen it all. His, calm, cool, and collected demeanor bodes well in these debates, because he’s not down in that junior high level of bickering back and forth with the other candidates. But he wants to stay at the 60,000-foot level and talk about solutions and address what the problem is. And the problem is obviously, Obama’s socialist policies that are bankrupting this country,” she said.


“Rick Santorum resonates, and he too can build some momentum,” Gov. Palin said.


She said she wanted to hear more details about Rick Perry’s flat tax proposal, which is based on the one Steve Forbes drew up nearly a decade ago.


When asked about the exchange between Rick Perry and Mitt Romney over the latter allegedly hiring an illegal immigrant, Gov. Palin said candidates should avoid pettiness and focus on solutions. She added that the debates are democracy in action and reveal characters.


Hannity asked Gov. Palin if she had any regrets about not running. Gov. Palin said she is satisfied with her decision. “I appreciate the role that hopefully I will be able to play and that is spurring discussion on how to spur economic growth in this country and very thankful – it seems like these Republican candidates are getting the ball rolling on talking about the solutions that so many of us want to be able to discuss with them,” she said.

Inspired to Move Forward

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 20, 2011

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

Seeing Governor Palin on Greta Tuesday night was bittersweet. It’s always enlightening to hear her weigh in on what’s going on. That’s the sweet part. Not only does she possess a keen awareness of the world’s happenings, but she’s the only person I can think of who expresses her views with naked honesty and boldness. That is, without a doubt, a quality that is most refreshing these days–and very much needed.

When I consider that quality, I can understand why the Governor would choose to keep her freedom to be that honest and bold by remaining outside the established political battle. No shackles, no PC police, no anything that would get in the way of her doing what she is wont to do: calling it like she sees it. I almost feel the liberation right along with her.

Having said that, what I feel just as much–if not more–is an incredible sense of loss at this liberation. I cannot help but think about what could have been. That, of course, is the bitter aspect of this whole thing. This sense of loss intensified as I watched the Nevada GOP Debate. I’ve heard many people speak ill of presidential debates, some calling them a complete waste of time. I don’t share that sentiment, but I’m admittedly a bit of a junkie when it comes to these things. I actually look forward to the debates. Prior to October 5th, I watched them with anticipation of the day Governor Palin would also stand behind one of those podiums or sit around a table and shine as she provided real solutions to real problems facing Americans. I longed for her unique ability to rise above the incredibly childish, shoulder-touching, eye-rolling, and neck-popping bickering we saw Tuesday night, behavior Romney and Perry displayed for all the country to see. Yep, just what we look for in potential leaders of the free world. They attempted to convince us they can preside over weighty domestic and foreign affairs, but they couldn’t even manage a debate without speaking over each other, pointing fingers, and insulting one another. I would have loved to see Governor Palin put these two in Time Out with a gentle chastisement, much like she issued during her 2006 Alaska gubernatorial debate when she told the bickering boys, “We owe Alaskans a better discourse than this.” Substitute “Alaskans” for “Americans” and the chastisement would have still applied Tuesday.

CNN’s Ashley Killough took note of Governor Palin’s comment about the debate

“We don’t want to hear the engagement of the nitpicking and the bickering because that just plays right on into the left handbook as they get ready for the general election debates,” Palin said.

Yes, I had wanted to see the Governor allow her record and knowledge to win the day. In fact, less than two weeks prior to her announcement, I wrote:

I look forward to what she’ll add to these debates. Not only is she solid on the issues, but she can articulate her stand on these issues based on intelligence, experience, and common sense.

[…]

I look forward to someone who will cut through the bull, call a spade a spade, challenge candidates on their records, spotlight her own, and revitalize the American people.

Well, it doesn’t appear to be as I had hoped, at least not as of today, but it’s far from over. The beat goes on, as they say. I had this same sense the night of November 4, 2008, as I stood in my living room staring at the television. As tears streamed down my face at the realization that the McCain-Palin team was not going to pull it off, I opened my mouth and said, “It’s not over for Sarah Palin.” I had not thought about the words before I uttered them; they just came out. After hearing them, I knew deep down that what I had said was the truth, though I had not spent time considering the possibilities that existed, and I had heard no talk of a possible 2012 presidential run until the following day. Yet somewhere within, I knew the plan was larger, greater, and incomplete.

Time proved those words correct, of course. What she has accomplished since her VP run has shown that, while a title is indeed needed to usher in certain types of change, it absolutely is not needed to make a difference. We know this to be true because we know she has made a difference. 2010 remains a testimony of what a difference she has made, and that’s just a portion of her impact as a private citizen. Her refusal to sit down and shut up has caused her detractors to fear her while inspiring her supporters to fight alongside her. Nonetheless, the title of President of the United States would be ideal, and many are still holding on to hope.

I know there are movements to encourage Governor Palin to reconsider, there are those who want to be the 10.3 earthquake she said it would take to get her to change her mind, and speculations exist that she might take a very unconventional path. I’ve theorized as much myself. Nonetheless, if we know anything about Governor Palin, we know she seeks God for direction, moves only as she feels led, and always considers the impact on her family. I have no doubt that if she felt those three things directed her to jump in, she would, and I also have no doubt that if they never do, she never will. That, of course, is not news to those who know how she’s wired. Time will tell how all this unfolds.

So what now? One thing that God put on my heart in 2008 after Senator McCain tapped her to be his running mate was how her story was a simple one. By simple I mean she and her family were just regular, everyday, Walmart shopping, hardworking Americans. She was busy raising her family, serving her state, and loving her God. As she just did what she did–not beating down doors to force something to happen–the door of opportunity presented itself and stood before her. It was a classic example of what the Governor calls preparation meeting opportunity. It reminds me of the biblical account of Ruth meeting Boaz. Ruth’s first encounter with him was not the result of her looking for a husband. She was there only to glean in the field. As she simply did what she had to do, as she took care of her business, her destiny presented itself before her; Boaz took note of her. She then took it from there.

Governor Palin, too, was faithful in what we call the little things, though her roles as wife, mom, and governor were anything but little, and she had accomplished great things throughout the entirety of her career in public service. As she committed herself to being faithful in what was before her, a new opportunity stood before her the summer of 2008–one that would change not only her life, but the lives of those who have been inspired by her.

This brings me to my point. What was impressed upon my heart three years ago was that what God did for her is what He wants to do for us. We all have a destiny, a place prepared for us just waiting for us to arrive–not out of a lust for power but out of a determination to make a difference and fulfill our own purpose. Governor Palin’s purpose has still not been fully accomplished; it’s still being lived out daily and is still unfolding. We must be sure not to stargaze, as they say, but to move forward in that same spirit. God has used her to influence and motivate a multitude. How many people would have never become engaged in what’s going on in this country had she not stepped on the scene? How many would have never entered the fight for the future of America, whether through local organization involvement, writing, speaking, or advocating, if we didn’t see ourselves in her and realize that we, too, have a part to play?

Like so many others, I want to hear that Governor Palin has decided to jump in this thing, seek that title she believes she doesn’t need, and lead this country forward. We may feel like we don’t know for sure which path she’ll take, but we do know what she’s said. Even after working so hard for three years in hopes of a Palin 2012 presidential run, I still take heart whether she ever gets in or stays out. The thought of her staying out is indeed most bitter–still. Even so, it’s not over for her. I know that with the same certainty that I knew it in November of 2008. But this time, I know something else. It’s not over for we, her supporters, either.

There’s something each of us can do to carry on what she has inspired within us. Some of us, for the first time, found sound upon opening our mouths when we discovered the Governor of Alaska and recognized that there was something worth speaking up for. We were meant to be more than an echo, however. We were meant to be a voice.

Whether Governor Palin makes her headquarters in Washington, D.C. or remains in Wasilla, AK as she fights for common sense conservatism, she will continue what she has begun. We must continue what we have begun, too. Each of us can make our mark on this country. The Governor may very well don the title of President of the United States some day, and there may be a title or two some of us will don, as well. On the other hand, moving forward, she and we may never be crowned with a title at all. We’ll know more soon enough, but for now let us be inspired as we continue to do what we can to advance the cause of liberty, support Governor Palin’s ongoing efforts to restore America, and fulfill our own destinies.

Here s a delightful first hand story from the recent Extraordinary Women’s Conference in Virginia, as reported by a local paper the Times Virginian, at which Sarah Palin was a speaker. One of the volunteers who helped run the event was also a hairdresser and, to her surprise and delight, she was asked to do Palin’s hair.

Down to earth, honest person’s delightful and refreshing recollection of a meeting with a person who is exactly the same-down to earth, honest and able to interact with folks on an an interested and just plain folks level. The key phrase is ““I found out that she loved God, she loves her family and after hearing her speech, she loves America.” 


Palin-mania touches close to home; Shawn Ramsey styles ex-governor’s hair, and sister Shana Canada sings for her
By MARVIN HAMLETT/Editor
Wednesday, October 19, 2011 10:30 AM EDT

 
 
 
Appomattox sisters Shawn Ramsey and Shana Canada got more than they bargained for recently as they were able to experience Palin-mania during the Extraordinary Women Conference in Lynchburg.

Canada sang an praise-and-worship set that preceded an impromptu visit from former vice-president candidate Sarah Palin to the sellout crowd at Liberty University, and she later shook Palin’s hand as she exited the stage.
 
Ramsey, however, got a lot more than that, thanks to President of Extraordinary Women Ministries and Melissa Small, who is the director of the Extraordinary Women Ministry.

Small, who is married to Rev. Rusty Small of Appomattox’s Liberty Baptist Church, helped organize the weekend conference at LU and needed a lot of volunteers.

So Ramsey stepped up, and shortly thereafter, she was asked to style Palin’s hair before stage time.

“When I arrived at the conference, Sarah Palin was not on my to-do list,” said Ramsey, who is a hair stylist from Genesis Beauty Salon in Appomattox. “I knew no one would be able to get close to her.”

 
 

At around 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8, Ramsey was notified that Palin needed a hair stylist for the event.

Ramsey nearly stopped in her tracks, then prayed as she made the trek to Palin’s hotel room.

“I graciously accepted and was escorted to her hotel room to spend almost an hour with her and her husband, Todd,” Ramsey recalled. “

The experience was definitely eye-opening for Ramsey, who was thrilled to get so close to a celebrity figure such as Palin.

“It was very exciting,” Ramsey said. “Sarah Palin was charming and beautiful.”

Palin has been a galvanizing figure since her emergence during the 2008 U.S. Presidential campaign. Her quick wit and cover-girl smile made her an immediate darling among conservative Republicans, and those same traits also seemed to equally annoy her political opponents.

For Ramsey, it was not just another haircut, because Palin is in fact one of the most sought-after subjects for photographs.

Ramsey blow-dried, straightened, styled and curled Palin’s hair, and she said Palin seemed very pleased by it.

“She was very kind and grateful that I took the time to do that for her,” Ramsey said.

Palin was extremely likable and talkative during the hair-styling, Ramsey said.

“I found out that she loved God, she loves her family and after hearing her speech, she loves America,” Ramsey said.

What was especially interesting was how interested Palin was in Ramsey’s life, she said.

“She initiated the conversation the whole time,” Ramsey said. “And her husband (Todd) was so cool. He mostly sat right with us, but he also took part in our conversations.”

When the hair styling concluded, Sarah and Todd Palin thanked Ramsey for her time and complimented her work. Then, they were off to LU for the women’s conference, where Canada was concluding her praise-and-worship set, which would be an intro to Palin’s arrival at Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Palin first made the surprise stop at Thomas Road Baptist Church, where folks there were anticipating Palin to speak via a satellite feed.

Palin then shook hands with many backstage as she spoke to the TRBC crowd. Canada was one of those who shook Palin’s hand.

Amazingly, Canada was unaware that her sister had been styling Palin’s hair moments earlier. Nonetheless, Canada certainly took notice when Palin hit the stage.

“I immediately thought about how great her hair looked,” Canada said.

But Canada thought nothing more of it, having just concluded her set with The Shana Canada Band.

When Palin hit the stage, the electricity was riveting.

“Everybody just screamed (in excitement as Palin walked onto the stage),” Canada said. “It was a surprise actually that she was able to show up there and speak.”

With an overflow crowd at the Vines Center, the energy and excitement of the moment was fantastic, Canada said.

Canada said Palin spoke for about five minutes, and let the crowd know how important they were for her.

“Then she said she would finish the conversation through the satellite,” Canada said.

“It was one of the neatest experiences of my life,” Canada said. “It was so neat because God was answering so many prayers in my life that day. My brother J.R. (Harvey) was playing guitar for me, and that was as much of a thrill as meeting her.”

The thrill was equally as strong for Ramsey.

“I was glad to get to do it, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” Ramsey said. “… I would like to add that as great of an experience as it was for me, God did much greater things in the lives of people, through the course of that weekend, and yes, Sarah Palin was present, but so was God, and he alone is worthy of our honor and praise.”
