Gov. Palin on Fox News: Debate Solutions, No More Negativity

Posted by Ron Devito on January 31, 2012

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight called upon the GOP candidates to debate solutions and issues and stop the negativity during a TV interview with Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly from her home in Wasilla, Alaska.

On Romney’s win – which as of this writing stands at 47% with Gingrich trailing 15 points at 32% with 79% of the precincts reporting – Gov. Palin said, “those are pretty large numbers for Governor Romney. $17 million bought lots of darts and arrows which were flown in one direction, and others were thrown back.” Gov. Palin said that with this $17 million in ads all spent in Florida, the other candidates found it difficult to counter Romney. “Once a bell is rung, it’s difficult to un-ring it.”

On Romney’s closing statement pertaining to leading the party, Gov. Palin said that is every candidate’s mission. She called upon all the candidates to debate the issues, like why are we facing a huge deficit, and debate solutions to problems such as the rumor that U.S. currency will no longer be used for oil trades, which increases our dependence on foreign energy. She said the candidates should debate the war on religion, which is a “war on our first freedom.” She said candidates should focus on normal every-day things, not nitpicking.

Baier asked Gov. Palin if she would carry her call to vote for Gingrich to Nevada in light of her having done it in South Carolina and Florida. Gov. Palin said, she would call on people to vote for whichever candidate would allow the competition and vetting to continue. Since Romney and Gingrich are the two front-runners, Gov. Palin said Gingrich is currently the candidate she would call upon Nevadans to vote for. “An even playing field allows the vetting to continue.”

Alaskan Grit Exercised Amidst “Global Warming”!

Posted by Ron Devito on January 31, 2012

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

A friend emailed me this notice from her local Alaskan school today. As the school notice makes clear: anything above -55 degrees below zero is warm enough for our Alaskan young’uns! Global warming? What global warming?

I just had to share this with all those who are enjoying the balmy 65 degree (above zero) weather in the Beltway today and the 70+ degree weather our Florida voters are enjoying!

And here’s a photo of my nephew doing his chores in -20 degrees. Last Frontier indeed.

How Obama Repaid Notre Dame

Posted by Ron Devito on January 31, 2012

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

Back in May 2009, during the controversy over Notre Dame’s decision to have President Obama as their commencement speaker and honorary degree recipient, I gave a short statement to the Boston Herald: “My favorite grandpa, Clem James Sheeran, was Catholic. Irish to the core, his favorite place (other than church) was Notre Dame. I can’t imagine what he would think as the university recognizes someone who contradicts the core values of the Catholic faith by promoting an anti-life agenda.”

In his latest Washington Post column, Michael Gerson writes about the Obama administration’s war on Catholic institutions with President Obama’s decision to strip conscience protections from Catholic universities, hospitals and charities.

As Gershon points out, the timing of Obama’s most recent slap won’t go unnoticed by the faithful: “In politics, the timing is often the message. On Jan. 20 — three days before the annual March for Life — the Obama administration announced its final decision that Catholic universities, hospitals and charities will be compelled to pay for health insurance that covers sterilization, contraceptives and abortifacients. Preparing for the march, Catholic students gathered for Mass at Verizon Center. The faithful held vigil at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Knights of Columbus and bishops arrived to trudge in the cold along the Mall. All came to Washington in time for their mocking.”

And in this we see how the faithful at Notre Dame got snookered and how Obama has shamefully repaid their faith in him:

Both radicalism and maliciousness are at work in Obama’s decision — an edict delivered with a sneer…

The implications of Obama’s choice will take years to sort through. The immediate impact can be measured on three men:

Consider Catholicism’s most prominent academic leader, the Rev. John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame. Jenkins took a serious risk in sponsoring Obama’s 2009 honorary degree and commencement address — which promised a “sensible” approach to the conscience clause. Jenkins now complains, “This is not the kind of ‘sensible’ approach the president had in mind when he spoke here.” Obama has made Jenkins — and other progressive Catholic allies — look easily duped.

The Nation Gets It;”Palin Staking A Claim On The Party’s Heart And Soul”

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on January 31, 2012

John  Nichols at The Nation has a brilliant article up “Sarah Versus the ‘Stalinists’. Nichols article is unusual, in that it sets out what is patently obvious to one and all, who view the current Republican Party scene unblinkered by factional dogma.

Nichols sees Palin “at war” with, to use his colourful language “epic losers like John McCain and Bob Dole and epic spinners like Peggy Noonan.” 

It is a pleasure to see a columnist use the same spirited language as Palin, but with perhaps a bit more bite than she is allowed (although saying Governor Christie had his panties in a wad” may show she is pushing the envelope).

That rhetoric aside, Nichols raises serious points about a serious matter, the battle for the very heart and soul of the Republican Party.

To me the core of Nichols argument is the following. By all means please read the whole article AT THIS LINK;

By positioning herself as the champion of the party’s grassroots in a battle with an aging and out-of-touch establishment, Palin is staking a claim on the party’s heart and soul. It is she, not Gingrich, and certainly not Romney, who may be best placed to come out of a bitter nominating fight as the favorite of the delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa and of Tea Partisans who will need to be energized if Republicans are going to be viable in the fall.

Even as she attacks the likely GOP nominee, Palin makes herself the essential Republican. That translates into talk of her as a convention keynoter, a vice presidential prospect or a Cabinet member in a new GOP administration. Palin would take the keynoter gig, in a heartbeat (high-profile, few risks), but don’t think that she would casually lower herself to accept another second spot on a crashing Republican ticket.

Gov. Palin on Hannity: More Vetting, No Endorse, Any Better than Obama

Posted by Ron Devito on January 30, 2012

“Keep the process going. Only three states have had the chance to chime in….Who is best to beat Obama? Who as been sharpened and shaped? The more candidate information that is revealed the fairer it is for voters. Competition reveals and shapes character,” Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight said in a two-segment TV interview with Sean Hannity from her home studio in Wasilla, Alaska.

“We need somebody passionate about not embracing the status quo. That’s the beauty of competition,” Gov. Palin said adding that Hannity’s son would not do well in tennis if he knew he was going to win every time and never be challenged. But, Gov. Palin said the campaigning has gotten vicious. “I’m not whining about it, but I will call out when lies are being told, whether by a PAC or by the candidate. We feel disconnected and disenfranchised. [The candidates should] debate relevant ideas and solutions, not petty stuff.

Gov. Palin felt compelled to write her Facebook Note about the GOP establishment using the tactics of the left when she saw the “re-written history about Newt Gingrich and the Reagan Revolution.” Gingrich had balanced budgets and was at least partially responsible for welfare reform. “I’m going to continue saying good things about all the GOP candidates, because any one is better than Obama. The establishment has never balanced a budget since Gingrich and Clinton did.” Gov. Palin said that the establishment appeared content to instead engage in insider trading that is illegal for everyone else.

In the second segment, Gov. Palin was asked to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate. She chose only to discuss the positive, as the candidates were doing a fine enough job bringing out the weaknesses. Hannity agreed.

About Gingrich, Gov. Palin said “his experience in Washington is a strength, because he was one of the few to work on a balanced budget and is passionate about shaking things up.”

Gov. Palin said if Romney is surrounded by hard-core conservatives he will be directed more toward the center-right values that the majority of our nation holds. But, Gov. Palin said Romney has a solid family lineage of success, and is a good family man. “I respect that.”

“I’m a great admirer of Rick Santorum. He is a great warrior on the field.” He is a social conservative and great on Judeo-Christian values, she said. Gov. Palin added that she would like to see Santorum expand his discussion to fiscal matters and foreign policy.

Gov. Palin said she has “great respect for Ron Paul’s fiscal sanity, and his austerity ideas are right on. Keep on being bold.”

Gov. Palin did not endorse any candidate tonight.

Gov. Palin on Freedom Watch: Be Practical Not Naively Idealistic

Posted by Ron Devito on January 30, 2012

“What I’m trying to do is find out who has that ideal, and also who can win the GOP nomination – not that it would be a wasted vote for Ron Paul, but Gingrich and Romney are the two front runners. I’m trying to be practical, not naively idealistic,” former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight said in a TV interview with Judge Napolitano of Freedom Watch from her home studio in Wasilla, Alaska. “It is the multi-billion dollar question, ‘who best to go against Obama? That’s why I want the vetting to continue,” she said.

Gov. Palin reinforced her “rage against the machine” message, saying, “rage against the status quo – the status quot that got us into that pickle. I want voters to rise up and allow the vetting process to continue.” Gov. Palin said if the GOP establishment gets the expedited conclusion it seeks, the electorate will be cut off – disenfranchised.

On Gingrich, Gov. Palin said he “has a record of raging against the machine in so many respects. He’s balanced budgets. He was part of the Reagan Revolution, and he was responsible for welfare reform.”

During the interview, Gov. Palin said the race was largely between Gingrich and Romney now, because Santorum and Paul are trailing very distant third and fourth respectively.

Following Gov Palin’s Lead and Math

Posted by Ron Devito on January 29, 2012

US for Palin has maintained a policy of not endorsing any POTUS candidates until former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin does. Our policy has not changed, and we remain neutral toward all the candidates, except as Gov. Palin directs. It is all rooted in this promise. Tonight, it is time to execute one more aspect of that promise….

Gov. Palin has issued the call to Florida voters to “rage against the machine” and vote for Newt Gingrich so that the vetting process can continue. This is not a matter of “Romney vs. Newt” and not a matter of any candidate’s relative merits or lack thereof. There has been too much bickering amongst Palinistas over that and too many friendships destroyed. Our support and fan activities for Gov. Palin did not end on October 5 with her announcement that she is not seeking the 2012 GOP nomination. Yes, we are both fans and supporters and proud to be both!

The GOP establishment and many pundits would like to have us believe that Mitt Romney’s nomination is “inevitable,” that it’s all over after Florida and we should just be good little boys and girls and accept it. The problem is not Mitt Romney so much as those who want to make his nomination a fait accompli as fast as possible. All these candidates need to be vetted and asked the tough questions. Whoever becomes the nominee, should do so because there was a thorough vetting and as a result, that candidate was truly found to be the best of the four to go against Obama in the general election. That cannot happen if those who want to “expedite the proceedings” have their way and secure a Romney win in Florida.

Gov. Palin’s call to Floridians to vote for Newt Gingrich mirrors her call to residents of South Carolina. Though she has undeniably spoken in highly favorable terms about Gingrich – favorable enough that many have construed her words as a de facto endorsement – the fact is Gov. Palin has not endorsed any candidate. SarahPAC has not provided any financial support to the POTUS candidates and Gov. Palin has not gone on the stump for any of them – actions that would rise above mere endorsement.

Why Gingrich?

“The math is the math,” and that is what Gov. Palin’s decision boils down to with the objective of seeing to it that proper candidate vetting occurs and this is not decided after four states. She has so much as said so. Romney and Gingrich are in a statistical dead heat in Florida. Santorum is trailing distant third behind them. Ron Paul is an even more distant fourth. Ergo, calling upon Floridians to vote for Santorum or Paul would make absolutely no sense as neither of them have the chance to pull off a win with little more than 36 hours remaining till Tuesday. Her call to Foridians is not about who is the most pure, or who has the best character. It’s about vetting candidates and ensuring as many voters as possible have their say.

In Her Professional Opinion

Gov. Palin has nearly 20 years in this business. She’s had more than her share of flowers and stones hurled at her. She’s been through heated contested primaries. Her statements on the candidates are her professional opinion derived from her experience, and the knowledge she attains in in the course of analyzing this race.

Denial – It’s Not a River in Egypt

About the only thing I disagree with Gov. Palin on is her statement that we are seeking the perfect candidate. It’s not so much that we are seeking the perfect candidate. We found her three years ago. Our perfect candidate chose not to run, but she never led us down a primrose path to believe that she was running. We advanced the idea and summoned her to run. While nearly all Palinistas prefer Gov. Palin to any of the four declared candidates, she is not running. Part of support means accepting, not denying reality, understanding that our narratives belong to us, and should not be projected on Gov. Palin. As she said on the Tom Sullivan Show, “logistically speaking, I’m up here in Alaska, raising a family, and running businesses. I don’t have the organization that could propel me to a position of being a viable candidate.” How far is Gov. Palin from New York and Washington D.C.? From either city, take a flight to Warsaw, Poland, then take a train or rent a car and drive another 200 miles. That’s right, you have to cross the entire Atlantic Ocean and more than half of Europe to equal the distance from New York and Washington to Wasilla, Alaska.

Gov. Palin does not live in a romantic world of talking trees, singing animals and pixie dust to steal from the FedEx commercial. She lives in a world of reality. Though Gov. Palin has her core values and convictions, she is a realist who sees the big picture. She has endorsed candidates who were “less than ideal” before, such as John McCain and Carly Fiorina, because other factors aside from conservative purism came into play. just like then, we need to watch Gov. Palin and listen to her words and execute them.

Test of Loyalty and Leap of Faith

I know Palinistas who absolutely hate, detest and loathe Gingrich for various reasons. The fact is, all four candidates have things in their records and aspects of their character that are Achilles Heels. They also have their strengths. We are not going to find a perfect candidate among the four – as Gov. Palin has said. They all need to be thoroughly vetted.

Gov. Palin has given a directive. If we are her supporters, if we have accepted her as our leader, we must execute her orders. Support is not always fun or easy. Sometimes, we have to do things we would rather not do. Whatever we think about Gingrich now – we need to support Gingrich in Florida – not on his merits, but as Gov. Palin said – to ensure that all four candidates are properly vetted and that as many of our 50 states as possible have their say in the primaries.

Now, therefore, everyone who lives in Florida, please vote for Gingrich on Tuesday, even if you are among those who hate him. Please put your hate aside. Don’t do it for Gingrich. Do it for Gov. Palin – Sarah.

Palin: Beautiful Bella Santorum

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on January 29, 2012

Oftentimes in our society, the least among us are overlooked, ignored, or an afterthought.   The word “burden” comes to mind and is often the chosen terminology used by doctors when presenting parents with the news that their much anticipated child will less than perfect in the eyes of the world.

Sarah Palin, understanding these challenges but recognizing the blessing she and Todd have in Trig, reaches out to the Santorum family during their time of need. Palin’s most recent Facebook note reminds us yet again that each and every life has purpose.

Sarah Palin’s Facebook note:

Thank you, Rick and Karen Santorum, for living the Christ-like example of sacrifice and right priorities. Nothing is more precious or important than the life of an innocent child. Our prayers are with Bella, a perfect child in an imperfect world.

God bless the beautiful Santorum family.

– Sarah and Todd Palin and family

Gov Palin on Pirro: Keep Vetting, No Endorse, but Strong Newt Support

Posted by Ron Devito on January 28, 2012

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight said she wanted to keep the vetting going, and would not endorse a candidate, but spoke highly favorably of Newt Gingrich in her single-segment TV interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro from her home in Wasilla, Alaska.

“I’ve been the proponent of keeping vetting going and of aggressive, but fair debating,” Gov. Palin said. “I’ve seen pundits, even on this network saying that this race would be over after Florida.” she said that only three states thus far have voted and the other 47 states “should have a chance to chime in.”

“I want to hear from Santorum about repealing ObamaCare that Romney was the architect of. I want to hear from Ron Paul,” she said detailing his positions on the fed, QE II, and other domestic economic matters. “I want to hear from Newt and his passion about the Reagan revolution. I want to hear from Romney, how he is not ashamed of his personal financial wealth which he earned through hard work. I don’t want the process to end yet.”

Gov. Palin said President Reagan was not afraid to take on other Republicans but he knew not to use the politics of personal destruction. Santorum noted that “Romney drew first blood,” she said. Gingrich had to hit back. The GOP establishment does not want him to shake things up. “Look at the players in the establishment. They are trying to crucify him. Both party machines are trying to crucify him. Keep vetting: Vote Newt. Annoy a Liberal, Vote Newt,” Gov. Palin said, also stating that he “is engaged in sudden and relentless reform.”

Judge Pirro asked Gov. Palin about Gingrich’s moon colony proposal. She acknowledged that it “would be an expensive proposition, but JFK had not just the romantic idea of [putting a man on the moon] but being first.” Gov. Palin said our space program was important for the national psyche and for its contributions to science. “There is nothing wrong with grandiose ideas,” Gov. Palin said, adding that we waste tremendous amounts of money on silly things such as cowboy poetry.

Judge Pirro recited a viewer’s Tweet asking which candidate Gov. Palin thought would be best able to defeat Obama.

“Which candidate is most passionate about sudden and relentless reform?” Gov. Palin said Newt Gingrich “would clobber Barack Obama in a debate.”

To which, Judge Pirro asked Gov. Palin if she just endorsed Gingrich.

Gov. Palin said she wants to continue the vetting.
