Bristol Palin: THANK YOU AMERICA! I appreciate every single vote cast.

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 10, 2012

Bristol thanked her fans for voting for her on DWTS All Stars Week 3:

Thank you guys!!  I know that I have the most wonderful people voting for me — I appreciate every single vote cast.  This week was a hard week, as everyone saw.  But you guys were there to support me, and I’m so thankful for that!

For fun, I thought I’d celebrate making it to Week Four by showing a dozen photos from the first three weeks.  Enjoy!  (You may have already seen one or two of these.  And oh yeah –warning — the last one is gross, but I wanted to show you what dancing in high heels does to feet!)

Governor Palin also posted a comment and photo on her Facebook page:

The boys are busy waiting for mom and mom/grandma to exit the DWTS studio! Thank you to all Bristol & Mark supporters who voted for them to keep on dancing! They honor you.

PolitiFact “Truth-O Meter” On Palin’s Statement’s “True”: Another Hit On The Leftist Myths

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on October 10, 2012

I just caught up with this “Politifact” analysis of Sarah Palin’s statements when on the stump for Ted Cruz. Once again it deals to the leftist big lies about Palin. Here she is being erudite and factual, which can’t be said for some politicians, can it? 

They give her a better than .500″ batting average across four statements, but their disallowing the “death panels’ remark has been, surely, belied by even the leftist New York Times giving it credence.

More like batting 100% ( or at least .750 if we allow a degree of doubt over the DP’s)

The Truth-O-Meter Says:
Palin

Says 1 in 7 American families is on food stamps.

Sarah Palin says 1 in 7 American families is on food stamps

Shortly before Ted Cruz won the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate, he got a star-power boost from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at a get-out-the-vote rallynorth of Houston.Firing up the crowd in her July 27, 2012,speech in The Woodlands, Palin touched on some claims PolitiFact has recently addressed, plus one we haven’t: “One in seven American families are on food stamps.”

Based on past PolitiFact work, Palin was batting better than .500 on these statements:

  • “Thirty percent of our mortgages are underwater.” More like 25 percent than 30 percent, as of January, butpretty close.
  • The Affordable Care Act is “death-panel-filled”Still a Pants on Fire claim.
  • “We’re going on four years now without a federal budget.” Yes. Specifically, when Palin spoke, 3 years, 2 months and 28 days.
So how’d she do with her food stamp claim? Another hit, according to the experts we asked.U.S. Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Alyn Kiel told us by email that Palin was correct — in fact, one in seven individual Americans is on food stamps, aka the USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Kiel cautioned against translating SNAP’s term “households” to “families.”

“There is no single definition of a household,” Kiel told us. “The Census Bureau defines it one way (anyone who lives under the same roof together); SNAP defines it another (more strictly as a group that purchases and prepares food together, so you could, for example, have a household of one, which you cannot by the Census Bureau definition). The Census Bureau defines families even more strictly than households.”

J.C. Dwyer, state policy director of the Texas Food Bank Network, told us by email, “Most of the time, a ‘household’ is roughly equivalent to a ‘family,’ and so contains more than one person. However, a single individual living alone is also considered a ‘household.’

“That’s why one in seven individuals benefit from the program, and one in five households,” Dwyer said.

He sent us USDA’s monthly report for May 2012, which shows that 22.3 million U.S. households encompassing 46.5 million individuals were on SNAP. He calculated the “one in seven” and “one in five” ratios using the U.S. Census population clock and average household size in 2010 (2.59 people), he said.

Dwyer cautioned against tying increases in SNAP recipients to any specific president or government policy, noting that the national food bank network Feeding America has reportedSNAP participation mirrors unemployment.

An April 19, 2012, report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office said that, nationwide, “Spending on SNAP benefits more than doubled between 2007 and 2011.” Chartsfrom the report show an increase in participation after the recession began in 2007; CBO predicts the increase will peak in 2014.

In Texas, SNAP participation has also risen compared to 2007, but has held fairly constant since early 2010.

Jonathan Lewis, a specialist in food policy for the left-leaning Center for Public Policy Priorities in Austin, emailed us a link to state data showing that the number of Texans on SNAP has remained within the range of 3.5 million to 3.7 million since March 2010, when it was at 3.4 million. The total was 2.3 million in July 2007 and 3.6 million in July 2012.

Lewis told us, “Palin’s statement about one in seven families on SNAP in the U.S. is correct besides her use of families rather than households. However, I think the public views them as the same.”

Lewis included a link to the Texas Administrative Code’s definitions of families and households. For purposes of the SNAP program, the code defines a household as the person or persons included in a single SNAP case by state Health and Human Services. A family, the code says, is defined as a group of relatives living together and meeting certain other conditions.

The state data show 1.5 million cases, or households, on SNAP in Texas for July 2012.

Our ruling

Palin’s figure is supported and may even understate the share of families on food stamps. Her statement rates True.

Video/interview Palin looks stunning caught by paparazzi at night discusses a presidential run

Sarah Palin releases information about her new book after paparazzi start a media frenzy

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 10, 2012

"My family and I eat a healthy diet heavy in wild Alaskan seafood, moose, caribou and fresh fruit."

Probably trying to be incognito, Governor Palin went shopping in Studio City, California sans makeup, wearing eyeglasses and a skinny outfit.  Paparrazi apparently spotted her and took photos that have spurred an overnight media frenzy.  After being criticized for being “skinny,” Governor Palin responded with news about a new book she and her family are writing about how they stay fit.

A “nutrition expert” even told Hollywood Life that Governor Palin had dropped from 140 pounds to 105 pounds and then offered her unsolicited advice.  I doubt Governor Palin ever weighed 140 pounds, except when she was pregnant.  And I’m certain this expert didn’t cajole Governor Palin into stepping onto a set of scales for her.

This morning, I counted no less than 40 articles already written about her “new look” and/or the new book.   The story is posted everywhere from Gretawire to Huffington Post to People Magazine to Washington Post and the Hollywood gossip blogs.  Of course, the haters are trying to spin it, as they do everything Sarah Palin.  For someone the mainstream media has worked so hard to declare irrelevant, Governor Palin certainly gets a lot of attention for every move she makes.

Here are some excerpts.  Samantha Chang at examiner.com writes:

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is writing a fitness book where she’ll detail her age-defying diet and workout secrets.

Palin made the surprise revelation to Peoplein response to questions over her shocking recent weight loss. Sarah, 48, raised eyebrows after sporting a dramatically thinner figure in Los Angeles on Oct 8.

“Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods,” said Palin, who didn’t say whether she has a book contract yet or when it will be published.

“We promise you what we do works and allows a fulfilling quality of life and sustenance anyone can enjoy.”

Palin, a mother of five, is a longtime runner who follows a high-protein, low-carb diet. “Conventional running is my sanity,” Sarah toldRunner’s World in 2009. For most of her adult life, Sarah ran 5-10 miles almost every day, except during her pregnancies, when she switched to aerobic classes.

“My family and I eat a healthy diet heavy in wild Alaskan seafood, moose, caribou and fresh fruit,” said Palin in 2010.

“My biggest pitfall is breakfast. I know it’s the most important meal of the day but I still haven’t bought into it. I hate to admit it, but a skinny white-chocolate mocha is my staple in the morning.”

From HuffPost Healthy Living:

Concern over Sarah Palin’s thin appearance prompted the 2008 Vice Presidential nominee and TV personality to reveal a bit of news: She’s working on a new fitness and wellbeing book with her family, Palin told People Magazine.

“Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!” Palin wrote to People, adding that her family’s method “works.”

This isn’t Palin’s first foray into the fitness space. She’s graced the cover of Runner’s World magazine, but she was more than just a model: She’s a long time anddedicated runner who regularly outpaces other Beltway jocks. For example, she finished the 2008 Anchorage marathon in 3:59 — two minutes under current VP nominee and P90X enthusiast Paul Ryan’s 4:01 finishing time in 1990 when he was 20 years old, according to the Washington Post.

Palin has been quoted as saying that she grew up doing “family runs” with her parents. She was a high school track star and earned the nickname “Sarah Barracuda” for her agressive prowess on the basketball court.

Sarah McGinnis at SheKnows writes:

In an email to People sent Tuesday, Sarah Palin explained, “Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline, focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved, homemade comfort foods!”

The woman known to serve moose chili, chocolate cream pies, pecan pies and lemon meringue pies to visitors at her and Todd Palin’s Alaska homestead added that her work will be a “unique and motivating book.”

“We promise you what we do works and allows a fulfilling quality of life and sustenance anyone can enjoy,” promised the woman seen above, cheering on daughter Bristol Palin during Dancing With the Stars on Oct. 1.

So what could be the Palin family’s secret to slimming down?

Bristol Palin commented previously on her own recent weight loss, attributing her success mostly to parenthood.

“I think I’m just more active and cut… all the crap out of my diet,” the 21-year-old mom of Tripp said in September. “My kid’s a lot more rowdy. He’s huge. He thinks he’s a teenager. He’s into everything.”

Our Work Continues for ‘Our Sarah’; Counting on You

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 10, 2012

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

Common sense conservatives have been joined together by common principles, among which are a respect for life, love of country, commitment to the Constitution, and belief in fiscal restraint. Those of us who support Governor Palin have found ourselves united also by a determination to defend her record and character against the onslaught of personal attacks, false narratives, and outright lies. Since 2008, a core of supporters have fought back against every attempt to trivialize her influence and remove her from the forefront of American political life. Many have risen to the occasion to set the record straight. Citizen journalists have led the charge, debunking fiction while disseminating fact.

Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck Heath, Jr. have given us something that will help in our goal to spread the truth of who Governor Palin really is. The Governor’s father and brother wrote Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, a book that allows us to better understand her upbringing, her work ethic, and her political career. They share the adventures of an ordinary family whose life experiences helped produce someone doing extraordinary things.

Our Sarah serves, not only as an entertaining account of a family forging their way in the Last Frontier, but as a tool to aid in putting the truth front and center. Unfortunately, haters are hell-bent on hating, a fact which is not likely to change. They not only take to social media like Twitter and Facebook to spew their vile, or write books citing unnamed sources to cast aspersions, they go about seeking ways to override every vestige of positive news about Governor Palin. Since the Heaths released their book, some have written reviews of it for the purpose of continuing their anti-Palin campaign.

Here are  samples:

From Goodreads.

From Amazon.

There are also many positive comments out there. Here are a couple from Amazon:

I read the entire book in one sitting and wanted more. This book is not just setting the record straight, but has great Alaskan stories that bring home why Alaska is called ” The Last Frontier”. Sarah’s brother, and dad especially seem to be characters, the type of folks that you could sit and listen to tell stories for hours. I laughed out loud at some of these stories and was touched by others. Really, a well-written book- the only downside that it wasn’t longer.

With down home folksiness that epitomizes the parents of Governor Palin , Chuck Heath tells the story of an incredible state ; an unforgettable family and a remarkable daughter—Governor Sarah Palin.

The only review on Barnes & Noble is the one I submitted.

We need more of these positive, truthful comments to push back against the negative ones.

In the interest of our ongoing effort to fight the smears and right the wrongs, would you consider going to these sites, signing up, and posting your comments about Our Sarah: Made in Alaska? You can also rate the book.

I’ve heard many people praise this new book, and it’s enjoying success on Amazon.com. Let’s not just read the book, go to our favorite website, and talk amongst “our own,” however. Won’t you consider leaving your mark for all to see? This is yet another way to help Governor Palin and to stand up for the truth. The critics, most of whom, I’d venture to say, have not even read the book, are counting on us to remain silent while they loudly proclaim falsehoods and discourage others from reading the true account of Governor Palin’s life and character. Let’s meet them where they are.

Please go to the Our Sarah: Made in Alaska page at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and any other place you find that allows a comment or review. I’ve already done the same.

Standing up for Governor Palin is what we do, and this is just another way to accomplish that. Our work continues. Can the Palins and Heaths count on you?
