Sarah Palin’s Reagan 100 speech: ‘Choosing the Stars’

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 30, 2012

Video retrieved from .  Text of speech can be found here.

Governor Palin gave the keynote speech for the Reagan 100 celebration of  Reagan’s 100th birthday.  During her visit to the Reagan Ranch, Governor Palin was given a private tour of the ranch, which she mentions during her speech.  Jensen Sutta, the photographer who was hired to photograph the tour, tells that story here.

bain 12 at Alaskans4Palin wrote an excellent article about Governor Palin’s speech:

Governor Sarah Palin addressed dinner guests at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, California on February 4, 2011 as the keynote speaker for the Young America’s Foundation Reagan 100 Celebration. I got a little misty eyed as I watched it live. For a precious hour it was ‘Morning in America’ again! An oasis in the Obama desert. This was as “presidential” a speech as you will ever see.

Note at the beginning of her speech where Sarah describes riding on the same trails that Ronald Reagan had cleared. Sarah is doing that politically now: Following in Reagan’s footsteps.

“There isn’t one replacement for Reagan, but there are millions who believe in the great ideas that he espoused,” Governor Palin told her audience.”There is a whole army of patriotic Davids out there across this great country ready to stand up and to speak out in defense of Liberty, and these Davids aren’t afraid to tell Goliath, ‘Don’t Tread On Me!’”

In this one statement, Sarah gives ownership of America to those in whom it rightly belongs. It’s up to us. Last night she said there would never be another Reagan. But just as Reagan did, “We The People” must fight for Conservative values, principles and personal responsibility. That is how we all can honor Reagan.

Sarah continued: “He (Reagan) saw our nation at a critical turning point. We could choose one direction or the other: Socialism, or freedom and free markets; Collectivism or individualism. In his words we could choose the swamp or the stars.

It took a Carter to get a Reagan. Both Reagan and Sarah Palin credit the love, spirit, and greatness of America to its people, not to themselves. Both Ronald Reagan and Sarah Palin place their trust in people, created in the image of God, guided by Constitutionally guaranteed freedom, to excel. Real leaders give authority and credit to the people who are actually in charge of getting things done. Sarah leads with the understanding that people yearn for the freedom to lead themselves. She provides a springboard and a rallying cry from which American Patriots can move ahead if they so choose.

They’re not comfortable with her because Sarah is not a member of the establishment. “The irony,” according to Lee Edwards, a Reagan biographer and fellow at the Heritage Foundation, “is that neither was Reagan.” President Reagan would be proud of Sarah Palin!

“I must admit it was an impressive speech. The first I have heard her give since she accepted the VP nomination, only much better. Reaganesque even.” – (Follow this link to read the entire article from Georgetown Law Professor Randy Barnett)

Some highlights from Governor Palin’s speech –

“As an Alaskan I proudly consider myself a western conservative in the spirit of Ronald Reagan…He refused to sit down and be silent as our liberties were eroding by an out-of-control centralized government that over-taxed and over-reached in utter disregard to our Constitutional limits.”

“President Reagan said that you can’t be for big government, big taxes, big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy.”

“In the words of the left, American exceptionalism is ‘exceptionally big government.'”

“History has proven again and again that when government picks the winners and losers, we’re stuck with the losers.”

“The stimulus didn’t stimulate anything but a tea party.”

“Last November, ‘We the People’ rose up and decisively rejected big government. We don’t want it! We can’t afford it! Enough is enough!”

(On ‘green jobs’) “This is not an economic policy. Its not an energy policy. This is diversion and this is social engineering. This is not the road to national greatness – This is the road to ruin. Its ‘crony’ capitalism on steroids.”

“I’m in favor of a sound, all-of-the-above approach to energy independence.”

“Put faith in God, not government.”

Palin’s Celebration of Life, “Mama Grizzly” Speech

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 30, 2012

On May 14th, 2010 I was honored to be a guest at the Susan B. Anthony Celebration of Life Breakfast held in Washington, D.C. at the Ronald Reagan Building.  It was a both a dream come true and a real blessing to meet Governor Palin.  When watching Palin on television she always seemed to speak from the heart and have a kind of friendly way that never knows a stranger.  Upon meeting her in person, Sarah’s warm personality and lovely smile truly lit up the entire room and her sincere “thank you for your support” meant so very much. As this speech opens, the first few words are not included but Palin is asking me and others from Team Sarah to stand as she publicly thanks us.

Palin’s speech to the Susan B. Anthony List fundraiser attendees was more personal than political.  Governor Palin talked about her own family’s unplanned pregnancies, why choosing life is the right decision along with a reminder that all life has value.  Out of this speech came the “mama grizzly” analogy in which Palin describes the protective mama grizzly which rises up  on her hind legs to protect her cubs. Palin likened the women of the Tea Party to mama grizzlies citing “if you think pit bulls are tough, well you don’t wanna mess with the mama grizzlies”.

Palin Laid Out a 5-Point Plan to Restore America’s Economy in her Indianola, Iowa Speech

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 30, 2012

Videos retrieved from 

On the third anniversary of her amazing RNC speech as the 2008 vice presidential nominee, Governor Palin delivered a compelling speech at the Restoring America rally in Indianola, Iowa.  At that time, she appeared to be considering a run for the Presidency, and her remarks during the speech led many to believe that.  Natalie Nichols gave a firsthand account of that day and the meet-up of Palin supporters the night before.

Sarah Palin arrived to a packed house in the farm-themed “Machine Shed Restaurant” in Urbandale, IA Friday night. The ever-amassing crowd began arriving at about 6:30 p.m. to congregate and socialize with fellow “Palinistas” from across the country. Supporters stood around talking and catching up, many long time online-friends were meeting for the first time in person. The atmosphere was more like a family reunion than a political gathering. There were children playing, doting parents, young professionals, and the elderly maneuvering through the crowd with the assistance of canes. I encountered people like myself and my family, who had driven in from Dallas, TX, those who had flown in from Virginia, some who hailed from Florida, Georgia natives, Iowa hometown fans, and even a woman from the president’s neck of the woods, Hawaii.

The meet and greet went on for an hour and a half when the front entry way suddenly began to buzz. When the camera crews darted for the doors, all eyes turned to see that those “Guess who’s coming to dinner” rumors were true…Sarah was in the building. She had a twinkle in her eye as she greeted those whose lucky positioning had placed them in the right place at the right time. She shook hands and held mini-conversations with her loyal supporters. She asked people where they were from and asked about their families…and she waited for the answers.


Palin continued to make her way through the crowd to the dining room which was already full. She worked the room and visited with those who had come out to join together to support her in her endeavors. Unlike the typical “politician,” Palin held real conversations with those present.

Saturday morning saw the arrival of even more Palinistas to Indianola for the Restoring America Event, featuring Governor Sarah Palin as the keynote speaker. They began arriving around 6:30 a.m. At that point the weather was great. As the morning wore on, they felt a sprinkle or two. And around 11 AM it started raining, and raining, and raining. One might have assumed that there would have been a mass exodus. But to the contrary, those who came prepared with a poncho donned the vinyl suits. Those with umbrellas held them high. Those who could fit, huddled under one of several open tents for shelter. And those who did none of the above just put on their best patriotic smiles, awaiting the arrival of the keynote speaker, Sarah Palin. The crowd was so dedicated that many of the people stood in the torrential downpour. All of those I asked quickly forgot about how soaked they were when Sarah Palin took to the stage. They repeatedly interrupted her with chants of “Run, Sarah, Run!” and “Sa-rah, Sa-rah!”

“We’re not celebrating red America or blue America! We’re celebrating red, white and blue America!” said Palin of a conversation she and husband Todd Palin had after leaving supporters at The Machine Shed in Urbandale, Iowa the previous night. She spoke about some of her own experiences, referring to the “sudden and relentless reform” she brought about during her tenure as Governor of Alaska early on in the speech. Those who don’t follow Palin closely may not realize that one of the sections of the documentary, The Undefeated, was called ‘Sudden and Relentless Reform’.

As the speech went on, a very notable correlation was drawn between the person Sarah Palin thinks is needed to restore America and the one she just described as having fought crony capitalism in Alaska since entering public service 20 years ago. Palin began to describe what she believes is needed in this way, “It’s not enough to change uniforms. If we don’t change the team and the game plan, we won’t save our country…we need sudden and relentless reform…and that requires deeds not just words.”

Palin has been criticized in the past as being simply a political celebrity, not qualified to run the country, and someone lacking a real plan. On the 3rd anniversary of her famous RNC speech accepting the Republican Vice Presidential nomination, Sarah Palin sought to put those criticisms to rest. She gave a hard hitting speech which hit on some of what she calls “real reform” and was able to accomplish during her tenure as Governor. She spoke about her years as a public servant and highlighted her specialized experience in the energy sector, while at the same time contrasting that with what she says are failed policies of the current administration. And finally she laid out a five point plan of “real solutions” and “the way forward.”

Palin explained, “We’re going to speak truth today. It may be hard hitting, but we’re gonna speak truth today. Because we need to start talking about what hasn’t worked and we’re gonna start talking about what will work for America…So let’s talk about real solutions.” She went on to say “I wanna tell you what my plan is!”

With those eight words, Palin announced what many believe is the beacon of hope for America; the staple of a potential Presidential campaign, her plan.

1st Let’s enforce the 10th Amendment! Devolve powers back locally where the founders intended them to be.

2nd We must repeal Obamacare and reign in burdensome regulations that are a boot on our neck. Let the private sector breathe and grow.

3rd We must prioritize and cut. Cancel unused stimulus funds and have that come to Jesus moment where we own up to the debt challenge that is entitlement reform. The status quo is no longer an option. Entitlement reform is our duty now and it must be done I n a way that honors our commitment to our esteemed elders today while keeping faith with future generations.

4th It is time for America to become the energy super power. The real stimulus that we’ve been waiting for is robust and responsible domestic energy production. We have the resources. Affordable secure energy is the key to any thriving economy and it must be our foundation. Drill here, drill now, let the refineries and the pipelines be built stop kowtowing to foreign countries and dictators… We need to move on tapping our own God given resources that are part of our reserve. I promise you this will bring real job growth. There are enough…projects just waiting in the wings, waiting for government approval that could create more than a million high paying jobs all across the US and this is true stimulus. America’s economic revival starts with America’s energy revival.

5th To make America the most attractive and competitive place to do business, to set up shop here, and hire people here, to attract capital from all over the globe that will lead to an explosion of growth instead of chasing industry offshore. I propose to eliminate all corporate income tax, and hear me out on this…this is how we create millions of high paying jobs, this is how we increase opportunity and prosperity for all. But here’s the best part to balance out any loss from this tax cut we eliminate corporate welfare and all the loopholes and we eliminate bailouts. This is how we break the back of crony capitalism because it feeds off corporate welfare which is just socialism for the very rich. We can change all of that. The message then to job creating corporations is that ‘yeah we’ll unshackle you from the world’s highest taxes, but you stand or fall on your own just like all the rest of us out on Main Street.

Let us seek that hand once more…We will fight for freedom, we will fight for America. We are at the tipping point. United we must stand and we shall nobly save, not meanly lose this last best hope on Earth!


As she exited stage right, Tea Party of America’s Judd Saul took us back stage for the final moments with the Governor. She made sure to spend some time with a few men in uniform before she and Todd got into their black SUV and rode away. But I had one final question that I just had to ask. I had to know if all the critics and haters in the media were having their desired effect on her, or, as I suspected, was it actually having an opposite effect and making her want to fight back even harder? She put her pen down, her eyes brightened up, a smile spread across her face and in her usual feisty manner that so many have come to love, she said “Heck ya! That’s that independent Alaskan, pioneering, fighting spirit pushing back!”

She didn’t say the words, but in what she did say and the excitement with which she said it, I swear I could almost hear her recite a line from one of her famous speeches:

“Mr. President, Game On!”
