“The Other McCain” Site Does A Palin Chick-fil-A Takeaway

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on July 28, 2012

Here is “Smitty” from the leading conservative site The Other McCain with his take on Sarah and Todd Palin’s support of the embattled (by the leftist “champions of free speech”)  Chick-fil-A chain.

Not exactly a ‘build’ per se, but Sarah Palin has certainly built an enviable reputation as a traditional American. God bless the lady and her family.
I hope Doug Mataconis reads this post and notices this Easter Egg

Hopefully we overcome the raaaaacism and misogyny of the Left and put this lady on a ballot someday.

Sarah Palin stumps for Ted Cruz in The Woodlands

by Andrew Horansky / KHOU 11 News.

Posted on July 27, 2012 at 10:55 PM

Updated yesterday at 11:00 PM

HOUSTON —  It is the biggest race in Texas and one of the most expensive races now being waged for Congress.
In The Woodlands, it brought out one of the Tea Party’s biggest names: Sarah Palin.
The former Alaska Governor spoke for 15 minutes at a rally supporting Tea Party-supported candidate Ted Cruz Friday night.
Cruz is running against Lt. Governor and fellow Republican David Dewhurst to fill Kay Bailey Hutchinson’s open Senate seat.
Wearing boots that she said were given to her by Gov. Rick Perry, Palin took aim at “lap dogs in the media practicing yellow journalism” as well as politicians who fall outside her beliefs.
“They spend, they print, they borrow,” she said. “They spend more and then they stick us with the bill.”
The crowd of hundreds applauded loudly.
“Gov. Palin’s support has a tremendous impact in galvanizing conservatives,” Ted Cruz said.
Following the speech, Palin was treated like a celebrity in the crowd. More people lined up for her than for Cruz.
“We need something to build a little more momentum to push us over the finish line,” Cruz supporter Jessica Eppler said.
In the meantime, a small group of veterans met near the rally to band behind Dewhurst, who was campaigning in Tyler.
“For Ted Cruz, this is all about ambition,” supporter Jake Ellzey said. “For David Dewhurst, this is all about country.”
It will be a busy weekend for the candidates leading up to Tuesday’s runoff election. Both will be bringing out political heavy hitters.
Cruz will stomp with former GOP candidate Rick Santorum near Dallas Saturday. Dewhurst will stomp with Gov. Perry on Monday.

Gov. Palin Stops By Texas Chick-fil-A

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 28, 2012

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

Earlier this week, Governor Palin called out Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago-style thuggery for his support of banning Chick-fil-A from expanding there. The owner, with a record of good service, happy customers, and charitable contributions simply voiced his stand for traditional marriage. A politician attempting to bully a private business is unacceptable, but “merely more of the same,” the Governor articulated.

Tonight, Governor Palin addressed an enthusiastic Texas crowd at a rally for U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz. Not long after taking to the podium, she mentioned that she’d stop by Chick-fil-A later to support the business.

As covered by Texas Politics:

Palin also injected herself into the Chick Fil-A dustup over its owner’s support for traditional marriage. “Jason,” she said, talking to an aide, “you’re going to have to take me on our way back to the airport later. We drive [by] a Chick Fil-A. We don’t have that in Alaska. Love me some Chick Fil-A. So, we’ll go there, Jason, on the way, OK?” The crowd cheered.

The article goes on to give a good run-down of Governor Palin’s fiery speech and includes several pictures. See for yourself here.

Chick-fil-A has not only had to deal with Emanuel’s ridiculousness, but has endured the vitriol of others who have no tolerance for those who don’t agree with their worldview. In fact, as Twitchy reported, when Don Perry, Chick-fil-A’s Vice President of Public Relations, died suddenly today, many of these so-called compassionate liberals took to Twitter to spew their hatred and revel in his death.

Once again, one reason I respect Governor Palin is she has the guts to consistently stand up for what she believes in, but she takes it a step further. It’s not just her own interests she looks out for. She stands up on behalf of others who are targeted by the hypocritical left, yet for this tendency to speak the truth she is called “divisive” and “polarizing”–adjectives she should wear as a badge of honor, considering they often come from those who have never in their lives stood up for anything that might cost them acceptance into the good old boys’ clubs for which they salivate.

Governor Palin, on the other hand, isn’t interested in being in anybody’s club, particularly if it shackles her or robs her of her independent spirit. She refuses to sit down and shut up, and she puts her money where her mouth is. A woman of her word, she did drop by Chick-fil-A, and she shared pictures.

Via Facebook, she posted:

Stopped by Chick-fil-A in The Woodlands to support a great business.

Shortly after, she also posted the following on Facebook:

Great to visit with the Sassy Feet dance squad at the Chick-fil-A in The Woodlands, TX.

Governor Palin On Fire at Ted Cruz Rally in Texas

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 27, 2012

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

Tonight, Governor Palin stumped for Ted Cruz, candidate for U.S. Senate, at the Get Out the Vote Rally in Houston. She gave one fired-up speech, totally fitting for an enthusiastic crowd of Texas patriots. These people want to see government restored to its limited role, Obamacare repealed, the Constitution honored, and spending sliced. They know Ted Cruz is the man for the job. Governor Palin lit it up for him in a speech that really speaks for itself.

Governor Palin Will Announce RNC Plans Soon

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 26, 2012

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

When Governor Palin accompanied her husband to the NBC party this week to promote the network’s fall lineup, which includes Stars Earn Stripes, featuring Todd Palin, she was asked a very important question. With all the buzz lately about Mitt Romney’s failure to date to invite her to speak at the Republican National Convention, and with many prominent figures stating she absolutely should have a major speaking role, it only makes sense that she would be asked about it.

Newsmax reports:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she will decide this week whether to attend the Republican convention in Tampa next month.

“We’ll have an announcement in a couple of days,” she told a reporter for the Tampa Bay Times Wednesday. “I don’t know if we’ll do anything fancy as a press conference, but we’ll get the word out.”

[…]

Several Republican luminaries have called for Palin to serve as a speaker at the Aug. 27-30 convention. That includes South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, and commentator Pat Buchanan.

Governor Palin Calls Out Rahm Emanuel’s ‘Chicago Thuggery’

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 26, 2012

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

One of the many things I respect about Governor Palin is her boldness. While others cower in corners, she is relentless in her willingness to take a stand and not be bullied. In this regard, as in most others, she is head and shoulders above many so-called leaders on both the left and the right.

With the recent attacks on Chick-fil-A, Todd Starnes touched base with the Governor who called out Rahm Emanuel and his thuggery:

“Chicago thuggery is a scary thing in 2012,” Palin told me. “For its politicians to think they can muscle businesses and shut them out just because they hold a differing, albeit traditional, view on an issue is a scary thing indeed.”

Emanuel said he would support banning the construction of a second Chicago-area Chick-fil-A because the company’s owner believes in the biblical definition of marriage — meaning a union of one man and one woman.

“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” Emanuel said in a statement to Fox News.

Palin balked at the threats to ban the private, family-owned restaurant from the Windy City.

“With a representative of Chicago politics making these threats, I’d be loathe to support any politician hailing from Chicago who supported Rahm and this radical action.”

Palin said the owner of Chick-fil-A is opposed to redefining the traditional definition of marriage — as are most Americans who’ve voted on the issue.

She said President Obama — until recently — opposed redefining the traditional definition of marriage. He evolved on the issue “when it became politically convenient for him to flip-flop around on.”

“Did these protesters oppose President Obama,” Palin asked.

“The leftwing’s double standard with intolerance of other people’s opinions is quite tiring, yet so expected,” she added. “This is merely more of the same.”

Read the full article here.

We already know what the left will say concerning Governor Palin’s comments, but they are wrong once again. This has nothing to do with hatred or bias. It has everything to do with standing up for what one believes and standing against politicians’ intrusion into private business and their intolerance of those who don’t share their perspective. This attack campaign merely provides another example of the blatant hypocrisy in the ranks of the left wing. As Governor Palin pointed out, how interesting it is that the left didn’t withhold their support of President Obama, with whom they are so enamored, who was against gay marriage before he was for it. Even more interesting is how the left hardly has a word to say about the fact that the black community, in large numbers, still does not–and will not–support gay marriage; that never seems to draw much criticism, either. I wonder why that is. Could they be afraid that their number one tactic will work against them? Calling out the black community might make them “racists.”

“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” Emanuel said. Well, they are the values of a vast majority of Americans, and people do not take kindly to being pushed around by a Chicago–yes, she said it–thug. Good on you, Governor, for calling it as it is.

Stars Earn Stripes: Forget Chuck Norris, Send in Todd Palin (Updated)

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 25, 2012

UPDATE: Sarah Palin posted the following message about “Stars Earn Stripes” to her Facebook page:

“Stars Earns Stripes” is honoring our veterans and first responders who are fighting to protect the good guys every day! Todd was privileged to work with an amazing team of production experts, competitors, and patriots in this absolutely kick-butt show that airs after the Olympics. It will blow you away as you witness what our troops and first responders go through.

I don’t know if I’ve ever met such a genuine, dedicated, and hardcore self-disciplined group of “stars” and operatives. This show can change your life if you understand the discipline and dedication our troops and first responders go through in order to bring honor to this great nation and then apply that same courage and discipline to your own life.

“Stars Earn Stripes”…wimps need not apply! :)

 

Todd Palin will be part of “Stars Earn Stripes”. a reality television show where stars will compete to earn cash prizes on behalf of a military, veterans or first-responder charity.  “Stars Earn Stripes” will premiere on Monday, August 13th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.

From the NBC website:

Hosted by General Wesley Clark (retired) and Samantha Harris, “Stars Earn Stripes” is an action-packed competition show that pays homage to the men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces and our first-responder services. The star-studded cast includes four-time undefeated world boxing champion Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain (“Out of Time,” Five Days of War”), actor and former National Football League player Terry Crews (“The Expendables 2,” “The Newsroom”), multi-platinum recording artist, actor, producer and television personality Nick Lachey (NBC’s “The Sing-Off”), Alaska businessman and four-time Iron Dog snowmobile race champion Todd Palin, “The Biggest Loser” trainer Dolvett Quince, Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street, and WWE Diva, Eve Torres.

The eight celebrities will gather at a remote training facility, where they will be challenged to execute complicated missions inspired by real military exercises. From helicopter drops into water to long-range weapons fire, the contestants will be tested physically, mentally and emotionally. Each will be paired with a special operative from a military branch or one of our first-responder forces, including former U.S. Army Delta Force and Green Berets, U.S. Navy SEALS, U.S. Marines and police officers, who train alongside their partners and compete in the missions with them.  More

Here’s a preview of the show:

Governor Palin Shines at NBC Party

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 25, 2012

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

Governor Palin apparently stole the show at an NBC party Tuesday, accompanying husband Todd who is a participant in Stars Earn Stripes, a military fundraiser.

Bruce R. Miller reports:

How do you gauge “star” power? By the crowd a celebrity draws.

At a party to promote NBC’s fall shows, Crystal, the Weeping Capucin monkey who stars on “Animal Practice” and is a Hollywood veteran (“Hangover II,” anyone?), clearly had the focus Tuesday night.

And then? Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin showed up and, clearly, the mob drifted.

[…]

Palin was at the Beverly Hilton hotel as a guest of husband Todd, who’s one of the contestants on “Stars Earn Stripes,” a new reality show that features “stars” in boot camp-like situations.

[…]

She was very personable — talking about daughter Bristol and the great job soldiers did. And she steered clear of any heavy political talk.

While she didn’t look like a candidate running for office, she did act like one. She took time for just about everyone and didn’t miss a photo op with Gen. Wesley Clark, who’s host of “Stars Earn Stripes.”

[…]

Gracious? You bet. Out of the politics game? Don’t be so sure.

Once a politician, always a politician.

Read the full article here.

Interesting scene, no doubt. The reaction to the Governor reminds me of what took place here at the MSNBC party last year when even Rachel Maddow was cordial. People who encounter Governor Palin with an open mind cannot help but notice how gracious and accommodating she is, even to those who have been less than kind to her. More than being the politician that Miller points out, she’s a class act.
