Palin: Our military men and women risk their lives to uphold our rights.

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 26, 2013

Governor Palin posted this Memorial Day message on Facebook this afternoon:

Sarah Palin
________________
With grateful hearts Americans recognize how sweet it is to live in a country where men and women offer to serve something greater than self. They choose to support and defend the Constitution to preserve our rich heritage, they deny themselves comfort to secure our well-being, and they sacrifice their personal freedom daily that we may enjoy liberty in perpetuity. “Thank you” cannot do justice to the gratitude we feel for our nation’s finest.
_________________
This year, more than ones prior…, I am especially mindful of those who have served and those who gave their all. Contemplating the September 11th terrorist attack in Benghazi, our government’s targeting of conservative patriots, snooping into reporters’ personal communications records, the usurping of Second Amendment rights – how can one not notice the disregard for our Constitution? Our military men and women risk their lives to uphold our rights. They deserve better than to have their sacrifice trampled on by people who pretend to have heard nothing, seen nothing, and therefore can say nothing about abusing their power over We the People. Americans deserve better. Certainly our military veterans’ honor deserves better. (By the way, pleading the Fifth while showing no regard for the First is as bold an exercise in adding insult to injury as I have ever seen.)
______________
It is time to declare, “Enough is enough.” It’s time to halt the fundamental transformation of the country our soldiers have given all to preserve.
________________
Traditionally Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, replete with family outings, barbecues, and parades. As much as we enjoy these wholesome American pastimes, this observance represents so much more. For the love of all who have ever worn the uniform, as a memorial to the service rendered, and in the spirit of those who paid the price we can never repay, may we mark this day by committing ourselves to the fundamental restoration of the greatest country on the face of the earth.
________________
Happy Memorial Day. We will never forget.

Gov. Palin: Todd and I at the Indy 500 Today (photos)

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 26, 2013

Governor Palin tweeted links a little while ago to photos taken at the Indy 500 that are posted on her Facebook page (from which the photos below were retrieved).

She also posted a link to this Twitter Pic:

Governor Palin and husband Todd are attending the Indy 500 over the weekend as a guest of 1963 Indy winner Parnelli Jones.

Cathy Kightlinger at the IndyStar reported earlier today:

Checkered-flag festivities draw stars, rockers and Sarah Palin

Checkered-flag festivities were in full swing on the eve of the Indianapolis 500 Saturday, as stars waved to fans from floats during the IPL 500 Festival Parade in the afternoon and dressed up with civic leaders and race team owners for the Regions 500 Festival Snakepit Ball at night.

‘Bucket list’ ride

While parade preparations were under way, former vice presidential candidate  and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd, toured Indianapolis Motor Speedway and got a ride around its famed 2½-mile oval.

They were guests of 1963 Indy 500 winner Parnelli Jones.

Jones, who is being honored at the track today  on the 50th anniversary year of his Indy 500 win, has befriended the couple and said he is planning to go caribou (reindeer) hunting with Todd in August.

“She’s a real game gal, and her husband, Todd, is a macho guy, and they wanted to do it,” Jones said after the Palins took their ride in a Chevy Camaro.

The ride is “bucket list stuff,” Palin said.

She likely will watch the Indy 500’s first pit stop from team owner Sarah Fisher’s pit and then watch the rest in a Pagoda suite.

“I’m anxious to see the stands full. That’s a spectacular sight, having watched it on TV all these years, growing up,” Palin said. “We’re motorheads, so that’s kind of our thing. Our daughter’s (Piper Palin) middle name is Indy. … I wish our kids were here.”

Gov. Palin: Help FTR Radio and SGP raise funds for Mercury One Relief Efforts in Oklahoma

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 26, 2013

Governor Palin tweeted this shortly after midnight this morning:
________________


_____________________

Mercury One, a nonprofit charity organized and run by Glenn Beck, has already raised over $1 million dollars for Oklahoma tornado relief.  Its Convoy of Hope, in partnership with Operation Blessing, had two trailer trucks of supplies on the road to Oklahoma the night of the tornado.  LifeNews has the story here.

From Mercury One’s Facebook page:

________________

Mercury One is tremendously thankful to all those who donated to help the families in Moore, Oklahoma after the horrendous tornado ripped through their lives. Together you have raised well over $1 million! Mercury One hit the road the same night as the disaster and arrived at First Baptist Church in Moore, early the following morning with two tractor trailers full of supplies from Operation Blessi…ng, some power generators, and gasoline. The people of Moore are incredibly strong, by the time we arrived most had been up all night, and continued to work all day. Even amidst tragedy they still could muster a smile and a laugh. Everyone was energetic, no one complained about the exhaustion, no one even sighed loudly, they all just kept on keepin’ on. The First Baptist Church of Moore is set up like a fortress of good. Throughout the day people continued to stop by to drop off more supplies. The church took in families that lost their homes. The scene was the epitome of brotherly love and open hearts. Our efforts are far from done, but together we’ve made tremendous headwind. You can continue to make the difference in so many lives!

At least two radio telethons have raised funds to support the Mercury One Oklahoma relief efforts.  Freedom Works sponsored a 24-hour radiothon.  FTR Radio and Smart Girl Politics teamed up to host a three-hour telethon.  Here is the press release for their telethon, which Governor Palin refers to in her tweet._______________________
