Gov Palin on Stossel: Obama’s Policies are Shared Misery

Posted by Ron Devito on January 26, 2012

Obama promised “more government growth and centralized federal government planning to create a utopia for us….[The State of the Union] was frustrating to watch….Socialism is shared misery,” former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin tonight said on her premiere interview with John Stossel from her home in Wasilla, Alaska. On Obama’s line about using an “all of the above approach” to energy – a line he ripped from Gov. Palin – she said, “maybe he’s come around in his rhetoric, because it’s an election year.” Gov. Palin noted that many Gulf oil rigs closed during his drilling moratorium and would take months or years to return following the removal of the moratorium.

Obama never spoke about ANWR, drilling, Solyndra, or our massive debt and deficit, she said.

“People want to believe the best,” about politicians, Gov. Palin said, but she said “voters should step back and do a little research,” even though “we have lives, and are raising children,” and do not devote our lives to politics.

Gov. Palin reiterated her position on Ron Paul. She does not support his isolationist foreign policy, but said “he is the only one who is passionate about doing something about our debt. His austerity measures are spot on.”

Gov. Palin also said the GOP establishment and the liberal media do not like Newt Gingrich and are “crucifying him,” trafficking in falsehoods. She regarded Peggy Noonan’s “angry muffin” assessment as little more than pure hypocrisy, since one candidate was being targeted for something all are doing. Gov. Palin said she had dealt with it for her 20 years in politics.

Alaska Airlines’ Prayer Cards; It’s Hip to be offended?

Posted by Ron Devito on January 26, 2012

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

It seems astonishing that someone would be offended by a simple prayer card placed on an airline’s meal tray, but I guess that’s the politically correct world we live in now. A few days ago, Rev. Franklin Graham gave me a heads up that Alaska Airlines may discontinue its nice, decades-long Alaskan tradition of including a little prayer card on flight meal trays. Rev. Graham is a frequent flyer to Alaska on Alaska Airlines because of his missionary work. Of course, as an Alaskan I’m also a frequent flyer on this airlines, which always seems to provide superb service. When I heard from Rev. Graham, I immediately sent the following letter to the CEO and President of Alaska Airlines.

It feels so odd that some may be offended by a little card with an encouraging non-denominational verse from the Psalms, but how often do we hear complaints about tawdry ads or billboard images flashing at us everywhere we turn? People of faith and common decency just shrug and move on from the constant assault on their sensibilities; we don’t call for censorship – at least I don’t. So, why in this day and age must every reference to faith in God be censored from the public square? Why must a private company buckle under pressure from a handful of people who find a little card saying “the Lord is my shepherd” offensive? I’m sure there are many more people who appreciate the cards, or at least are ambivalent about them.

Is it any wonder that people of faith feel their beliefs are constantly marginalized or even under outright attack when we hear reports like this and stories about Catholic institutions being forced to sue the Obama administration over their right to conscience objections? This Alaska Airlines story is just about a simple meal card, but for these Catholic institutions it’s about an issue that cuts to the heart of their deepest religious beliefs.

Here is the letter I sent to Alaska Airlines, and I encourage other customers to let their voices be heard. Granted, it’s hip to wage war on American traditions lately – especially anything faith-based – but for many of us it’s just not in our DNA to merely shrug off the nonsensical attacks on positive, inspiring, and (in my opinion) needed encouragement today.

Dear Mr. Ayer and Mr. Tilden:

Thank you for your tremendous service to Alaskans and so many others over all these years! We love Alaska Airlines. As I tell everyone, it is my favorite.

In my book “Going Rogue” I gave a special shout-out to airline employees because of the extraordinary customer service and good attitudes I witness on flights that my family and I take around this great country. It’s inspiring and impressive to see the sweet spirit of hard working airline employees shine, in spite of sometimes difficult people and circumstances dealt with everyday.

Also inspiring and impressive, and very encouraging, is the special touch Alaska Airlines has blessed fliers with for many years. Your small prayer cards that remind us of the beauty of thankfulness have never ceased to amaze me. In this tumultuous world, finding this little tangible reminder of such an important virtue is always uplifting! Thank you for providing the cards.

It’s come to my attention that the cards may be discontinued due to a few who are offended. I really hope this is just a rumor. Please remain strong and courageous in the face of a cultural trend that wants to wage war on any positive thing that a few may construe as offensive. The Alaska Airlines tradition should be looked upon as an all-American, hopeful, encouraging gesture. Please don’t discontinue the cards.

Thank you again for your service!

Sarah Palin and family

SarahPAC Gears Up for Elections

Posted by Ron Devito on January 26, 2012

Ed. Note: This SarahPAC fund-raising letter was customized to each donor and geared for check mail-in. In re-typing, the original document has been slightly modified to obfuscate personal information and to bring donors to the online donation page. As Mr. Crawford wrote, Gov. Palin will be aggressively campaigning nationwide so we can retain the House, take the Senate, and the White House. Her work will rise above endorsements to include supporting candidates on the stump. These activities require our support.

January 20, 2012

With just 10 months left until Election Day, Barack Obama is showing the American people yet again why he can’t be trusted, why he can’t lead, and why he must be defeated this November.

  • Against the advice of even federal advisers, he doled out more than $500 MILLION of our tax dollars to his “green jobs” cronies at Solyndra – where it promptly disappeared after they filed for bankruptcy.
  • He thumbed his nose at Congress and appointed a nominee to head up his new “Consumer Protection Agency” without congressional approval. Senator Mitch McConnell called it an unprecedented power grab that “arrogantly circumvented the American people.”
  • Obama’s disastrous economic policies led to our nation’s first credit “down-grade.” And Obama still wants to raise the debt ceiling!
  • And while he just slashed our military budget, he’s raising welfare spending by $900 MILLION.

Barack Obama’s so-called “change” has forced Americans into unconstitutional “Obamacare”…higher taxes…and a weakened national security.

And if his out-of-control spending isn’t stopped, he will endanger the economic security of future generations of Americans by leading us into European-style debt crisis.

That’s not change… it’s socialism. And it’s crushing the American Spirit that made our nation great.

Our Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when they wrote the U.S. Constitution. They designed a government that works for the people… not the other way around.

  • A government that thrives on hard work – not hand-outs.
  • A government that will live within its means – not mortgage our children’s future to pay for today’s bureaucratic waste.
  • And a government that will maintain a strong national defense – not bow down to nations who despise us and our way of life.

Barack Obama has forgotten the values that made our nation great. But Gov. Palin hasn’t.

And if you’re ready to help her elect fiscally-conservative, pro-family, pro-America patriots on Election Day, then please [click the SarahPAC graphic] to send your best gift today.

You and I both know the power a Sarah Palin endorsement will carry in these elections….especially when it comes to defeating Barack Obama.

That’s why we need to be ready to strike at a moment’s notice. And that means we need a war chest that can go head-to-head with Obama’s.

You’ve given as much as [redacted] to SarahPAC before. You helped us take back the House in the crucial 2010 mid-term elections.

But now everything is on the line. Control of the House. The Senate. And the White House.

with so much at stake, Gov. Palin is counting on your best gift possible today. Thank you for standing with her again!

Sincerely,

Tim Crawford
SarahPAC Finance Director

P.S. It’s not enough to complain about Obama’s arrogance and his socialist agenda. Gov. Palin is ready to help defeat him – but she needs the support of freedom-loving citizens like you to help her shape the debate, campaign across the country, and throw the full weight of SarahPAC behind every candidate she endorses. Will you help us take back our nation this November? If so, please [click the graphic now to] rush your …gift …to Gov. Palin today. Thank you again!
