Governor Palin’s Exceptional Speech to New Media at RightOnline Conference

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 16, 2012

Governor Palin delivered an exceptional speech at the RightOnline conference last night.  It was packed with Palinesque nuggets and covered a gamut of Barack Obama’s  transgressions as well as the failures and obfuscations of the old media.  As Tony Lee pointed out, it was a “call to arms to the online ‘Army of Davids’ in its battle against the Goliath that is the ‘lamestream media’.”

Although the entire speech is noteworthy and one of Governor Palin’s best, here are the top 10 quotes picked by Tony Lee in his article at Big Government:

Palin showed once again how she, like Breitbart, could inspire conservatives, be funny, and mock liberals in a way that allows her message to cut through the mainstream media’s filter.

Here are the top ten quotes from her address.

1. On not being co-opted by the permanent political class

Sometimes you gotta rage against the machine … to hold them accountable … Whatever the outcome is in November, please do not get co-opted by the permanent political class. Granted you will not make many friends in the Beltway or in Hollywood … or in HBO … you won’t be one of the cool kids … doggone it … aww … sometimes you’ll find yourself under the bus … but you need to stay outside of the machines … sometimes you gotta rage against it … stay outside of the political establishments in order to hold them accountable … don’t spin the GOP failures the same way the left does for President Obama …

2. On Andrew Breitbart’s legacy of fearlessness

As we honor Andrew Breitbart, remember his greatest gift he left for us is fearlessness … and I would hope … that you would be able to reload with that inspiration of his fearlessness … stand your ground and others will stand with you .. courage inspires courage .. victory begets victory … don’t retreat, reload with that inspiration.

3. On Matt Drudge and his clairvoyance 

The new media rose up precisely because the old media failed to tell the truth. That very first new media breakthrough was about 15 years ago when this lowly little store clerk in a lowly little apartment equipped with his computer and a modem broke one of the biggest stories of the decade. His name was Matt Drudge and the rest is history. And in hindsight, we see that the story he broke was more than just a president having an affair. To me it was much, much more than that. It was about a major old media publication that had spiked the story eleven times. And they knew all about it. Eleven times! Not just once to check their facts. Not twice just to double-check. Eleven times they spiked the story. Why? Because as charter members of that Democrat Media Complex they were protecting their guy. So, when a fellow with a modem and a website found out about this, he decided to tell the truth they refused to tell. And oh how that old media cried foul and they howled. They denounced Drudge as irresponsible and unprofessional and even dangerous and anti-everything from motherhood to apple pie. How dare that nobody from nowhere without a degree or a pedigree try to influence the national discourse. But the real reason they feared him was because he wasn’t beholden to the old media’s machine and the Thought Police. Unshackled, he was free. And a few months later, Drudge got to speak at the National Press Club in DC. He predicted the future in his speech there. He said, “We have entered an era vibrating with the din of small voices. Every citizen can be a reporter, can take on the powers that be….I envision a future where there’ll be 300 million reporters, where anyone from anywhere can report for any reason. It’s freedom of participation absolutely realized.” Thus the birth of citizen journalism, and you are the future he predicted!

4. On national security leaks and augmented figures in polls

But if they had done their job perhaps we would not be shocked to know that our White House would politicize national security by leaking highly confidential information to prop up their polls. Now here we are in Vegas. And in Vegas — and in Washington too — they talk a lot about polls. There are a lot of poles in Vegas. The White House likes to cite polls  … because the figures involved in those polls are usually augmented too …

5. On the Tea Party’s steel spine

You showed D.C. what having a spine looks like. Or, as I said that day in Wisconsin, you showed them how to ‘fight like a girl.’

6.  On the mainstream media’s failure to vet Obama 

Had the media done its job … we would have known of his association with anti-American intellectuals and then not be surprised at his desire to apologize for America to foreign dictators, or that he is the first President of the United States in history to not believe we are an exceptional nation …

7. On Obama’s failed energy strategy

So as we’re preaching ‘drill, baby drill’ … and he’s preaching ‘stop, baby stop’ …

8. Teasing Obama for having eaten a dog in his youth in Indonesia 

Why did they (the mainstream media) at least not read his autobiography? … they would have learned a whole lot … about pot smoking and cocaine smoking and what he ate … Fido. Rufus. … I find it funny that I get a hard time for eating elk and moose … come on, does anybody have a pet moose? There’s a difference.

9. On the power of truth 

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

10. On being influencers in pop culture 

Breitbart said ‘culture is upstream of politics’ … it’s not selling out, it’s infiltrating and influencing.

Major Media Reports On Palin’s “Fiery Speech” At RightOnline Conference Plus Video

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on June 16, 2012

Here are two of the first media reports on Sarah Palin’s hard hitting and inspirational address to the conservative bloggers conference “Right Online”.
They are remarkably free of the usual “I can see Russia” nonsense, which shows that if you hit bullies hard, they respect you. The usual morons show up in the comments section of the LAT-but what else would you expect.

From The Los Angeles Times :

Sarah Palin gives a pep talk to conservative bloggers at the Right Online conference

By Robin Abcarian  June 15, 2012, 9:26 p.m.

LAS VEGAS — It was a rousing pep talk for a ballroom full of conservative bloggers, and a tribute to a fallen compadre Friday evening, as Sarah Palin honored the memory of the late Internet entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart and told an annual gathering of conservative new media that they fill a vital role in the nation’s political discourse.

In some ways, Palin’s 35-minute speech was also a vintage performance, her sing-song voice rising and falling as she also castigated and mocked the “lamestream media,” accusing it of failing to vet then-candidate Barack Obama in 2008 and of promulgating rumors about her personal life, which still seem to get under her skin.“You do what the old media can’t or won’t do, and that’s tell the truth,” said Palin, who remains a hero of the tea-party right despite her withdrawal from the arena of electoral office. “I have learned in the last four years or so, it doesn’t do any good to personally complain about the untruths told by the old media. I might as well save my breath…. Shoot, by now I should have been divorced how many times? Under FBI investigation. Living in the Hamptons. It still is a great mystery who really is Trig Paxon Van Palin’s real mother.”

Speaking in a ballroom of the Venetian Hotel, owned by heavyweight Republican contributor Sheldon Adelson, Palin did not mention this morning’s announcement by President Obama that he would stop deporting young adults brought to the United
States as children. In a brief conversation with Politico after her speech, she accused Obama of “pandering to a specific demographic.”

She did, however, allude to the victory in Wisconsin by Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who beat a recall effort on June 5. She reminisced about sharing a stage with Breitbart on the steps of the Wisconsin Capitol in April 2011, at a gathering
organized by Americans for Prosperity in support of Walker’s proposals to end collective bargaining for public unions. (The Americans for Prosperity Foundation, part of the anti-tax group founded by the billionaire Koch brothers, sponsors the Right Online conference.)

”We were there, we few, we happy few, we band of brothers, in the blowing snow and pelting rain on the Capitol steps,” Palin said. “I felt right at home. … And that left-wing mob surrounded us with shouts and they had their drum circles and their cowbells — oh the cowbells, that was so intimidating.”

Palin told the bloggers that the 2008 presidential campaign was “the final straw” for the credibility of old media, which, she said, devoted itself to studying the cost of
her wardrobe, rather than vetting the future president.

“They propped him up and spun for him, and with tingles up their leg, they delivered their chosen one for the victory,” Palin said. “We have the time-tested truths on our side and we will defeat that Goliath of the old media that still seeks to deceive this most exceptional nation. So don’t’ retreat. Reload.”

Palin salutes ‘new media’ at Venetian conference


Posted: Jun. 15, 2012 | 9:53 p.m.

In a fiery speech to conservative bloggers, Sarah Palin accused “old media” of not doing its job to vet Barack Obama before he became president and said it was up to “new media” to tell the truth to prevent his re-election in 2012.

“Who’s going to tell them the truth?” Palin asked Friday night, speaking to the RightOnline conference in Las Vegas. “We must tell them the truth.”

Palin, the former governor of Alaska, said reporters were too busy trying to dig up dirt on her in her hometown of Wasilla, after Republican John McCain picked her as his vice presidential running mate in 2008.

She said if people believed everything written about her and her family she would have been divorced from her husband, Todd, several times.

Like many conservatives who question Obama’s past associations, Palin said in college he leaned toward Marxist professors and leftist radicals. She accused the Democrat of being a socialist at his core.

That’s why the U.S. government is growing under Obama and deepening the nation’s debt by millions of dollars each day, Palin said.

“The problem with being a socialist is eventually you run out of other people’s money,” Palin said to applause.

>A conservative firebrand, Palin was the star speaker at the two-day RightOnline conference at the Venetian, the only non-union casino property on the strip. Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson, a big money donor to Republican candidates and causes, owns the hotel-casino.During her 35-minute speech to some 500 people at the event for online activists, Palin reserved her fire for mainstream media and Obama. She didn’t mention Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential nominee who wasn’t conservatives’ first choice.

Palin praised Matt Drudge for becoming the first new media star who first began reporting stories that didn’t appear in mainstream publications. She said social media has made it easier for everybody to be a “citizen journalist” now thanks to Twitter, Facebook and public websites.

“New media activists can really be the vanguard for the future of our country,” said Palin, a favorite of the tea party movement against taxes. “New media is giving voice to the people because you are of the people. Without you, there wouldn’t be a tea party movement.”

Palin said the latest tea party victory came this month in Wisconsin when liberals failed to recall Gov. Scott Walker. Unions led an effort to oust him from office after he curbed collective bargaining rights.

“You stood by a governor who was bound and determined to keep his promises to the people who hired him to do that job,” Palin said.

Palin said conservative new media could go beyond driving political discussion to “become a force for activism.”

“You do what the old media won’t do and can’t do and that’s tell the truth,” she said.

She said some mainstream media don’t always fall prey to political spin and “don’t want to be the prince of Makecrapupistan.”

But most old media, she said, protect the old guard, including establishment candidates and leaders such as Obama. Obama used social media effectively to win election, she said, but he also is “a creature of old media” who refused to vet him.

In a swipe at the White House, she accused the administration of leaking national security information to friendly media outlets “to make him look like a tough guy” as he runs for re-election.

Obama has denied the White House is responsible for the leaks, including one about a U.S.-Israeli assault on Iran’s nuclear program with a computer virus. Leaks also have revealed Obama’s role in deciding a “kill list” for drone strikes in Pakistan as well as a CIA operation in Yemen that blocked an attempt to blow up a transatlantic flight.Palin urged the conservative new media bloggers to never become part of the establishment political machine.”Rage against the machine,” Palin said to cheers.
