When asked by Greta van Susteren whom he admires in Republican politics, Rush Limbaugh said that he admires people like Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin who are fearless, who are bold and brave enough to speak about what they truly believe, who have the courage of their convictions and no compunction about saying it,  who are not embarrassed of themselves or insecure , and who firmly believe what has to be done and are willing to stand behind it.

Here is the entire segment from that interview (h/tp Jews for Sarah).  Well worth a listen.

Must Read on Obamacare, Death Panels, and Who’s Now In Agreement

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 29, 2013

She warned us.  Sarah Palin warned us over, and over, and over.  The term “death panels”, which Palin brought to the forefront of the Obamacare discussion in 2009, was mocked and ridiculed.  In fact, the Breitbart  article below reminds us that it was Politifact’s “Lie of the Year” in 2009.

Okay, to be fair, the death panels are not exactly referred to as “death panels” in the Affordable Care Act but as “IPAB” (Independent Payment Advisory Board).  It should be noted that even the American Medical Association supports the repeal of IPAB.

It seems that yet again, Palin was right.

Following is a must-read article written by John Nolte over at Breitbart.  In it you just might be surprised at who is now saying essentially what Palin wrote about some four years ago.

 

In December of 2009, Politifact, a left-wing website that poses as an objective fact checker, awarded former Alaska governor Sarah Palin its “Lie of the Year.” Politifact claimed that Palin’s use of the term “death panel” to describe the rationing that will come with ObamaCare was the biggest whopper of ’09:

Of all the falsehoods and distortions in the political discourse this year, one stood out from the rest.

“Death panels.” …

[Palin’s] assertion — that the government would set up boards to determine whether seniors and the disabled were worthy of care — spread through newscasts, talk shows, blogs and town hall meetings. Opponents of health care legislation said it revealed the real goals of the Democratic proposals. Advocates for health reform said it showed the depths to which their opponents would sink. Still others scratched their heads and said, “Death panels?  Really?”

Yes, really.

And Democrat Howard Dean agrees. In a Monday Wall Street Journal op-ed, Dean writes:

One major problem [with ObamaCare] is the so-called Independent Payment Advisory Board. The IPAB is essentially a health-care rationing body. By setting doctor reimbursement rates for Medicare and determining which procedures and drugs will be covered and at what price, the IPAB will be able to stop certain treatments its members do not favor by simply setting rates to levels where no doctor or hospital will perform them.

Here is what Palin wrote four years ago:

The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course.

If what Dean fears comes true, specifically that “IPAB will be able to stop certain treatments its members do not favor by simply setting rates to levels where no doctor or hospital will perform them,” it takes no leap of logic or faith to fear which expensive and/or experimental procedures will not be covered.

Of course that kind of thinking is most likely to hurt those seen as the least desirable by bureaucrats — those unable to “contribute”: the elderly, disabled, and sick. (Palin forgot one group: the unborn.)

IPAB is what Palin directly referred to in her “death panel” post. And for spelling out the truth about the obvious human consequence of a rationing problem both she and Howard Dean agree is very real, she was awarded Politifact’s “Lie of the Year.”

What is important to remember, though, is that Palin was falsely smeared with PolitiFact’s “award” in December of 2009. At the time, ObamaCare was still four months from being signed into law and still not a sure thing to make it that far. More

Caller Wants Palin to Lead Conservatives

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 29, 2013

Calgary_March2010_sarah

During today’s Rush Limbaugh Show a caller discusses his desire for Sarah Palin to lead conservatives in a take over of the Republican Party.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here’s Greg in Nashua, New Hampshire.  You’re next on the EIB Network.  Hello.

CALLER:  Hi, Rush.  Based on what you’re saying about the Republican Party abandoning a large chunk of the American population — including conservatives — or even being any real opposition to the Democrats on Obamacare and apparently everything else, I’m wondering whether Sarah Palin’s recent gambit that if the GOP… I think she calls them the GOP brain trust on the Greta show.  If the GOP is indeed abandoning her as well as a large swath of American voters, she’s going independent.  Palin is a prominent Republican. Even beyond what Ted Cruz or Mike Lee has said, she’s broached the topic of going outside the GOP if need be, and maybe she’s right on target there. Maybe she can lead the way out of this conundrum of the Dems and the GOP, apparently, being joined at the hip, at least on Obamacare and probably a lot more.

RUSH:  Well, you mean by going third party?

CALLER:  Yeah, or thing if… Turn the party over to her she’ll go third.

RUSH:  Now, wait a minute.  I think I mighta missed something.  Nobody is gonna turn the party over to anyone.   More

Gov. Palin: God bless Americans past and present who wear the uniform

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 28, 2013

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page today:

 

Medal of Honor recipient Col. George “Bud” Day passed away yesterday. I had the honor of meeting Col. Day during the 2008 campaign, and he joined me at a rally in Sioux City, Iowa. He was a great American whose dedication and service to our country in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam will never be forgotten – especially the courage he showed as a POW in Vietnam with his cellmate John McCain. This weekend also marks the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War. May we never forget the sacrifices made by brave Americans like Col. Day and all the veterans of our wars. And may we also never forget the men and women in uniform who are currently in harm’s way protecting our freedoms. There are still fresh deployments to war zones everyday though we seldom read about them in the papers any more. God bless these Americans – past and present – who wear the uniform and serve something greater than self.

Gov. Palin: Which scandal does Obama consider “phony”?

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 27, 2013

Video retrieved from sarahnettoo.

Governor Palin went On the Record last night to respond to Obama’s use of the word “phony” to describe the scandals  in his administration.  She asked which scandal does he consider specifically as a “phony scandal” – Benghazi, the government spying on us, or the government lying to us?  She said that it is no coincidence that both Obama’s spokesman and Obama himself used the word “phony” to refer to the Obama administration scandals.  Coordinated distractions and diversions are being showed down our throats.  “Something’s up,”  she said.  “Obama is trying to run out the clock for some reason.”  She likened  this to a stall play in basketball, when a player hangs on to the ball, which is cowardly and unproductive.  The crowd gets up and leaves, and the only fans that won’t bail are the mainstream media, because they are part of the problem.  She said that this will be detrimental to the mainstream media and to the free America as we know it.

Governor Palin said it started in 2008 when the media decided to go along with Obama to get along and ingratiated themselves with him and vice versa.  The whistleblowers, including those in the campaign, who were telling the truth about Obama were attacked.   She was banned in the 2008 campaign from talking about Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, and Obama’s lack of knowledge and job experience.  GOP elitists, the “brainiacs” who ran the campaign, said the media would “eat us alive,” she said, if they mentioned those things. What that got them was the complacency and self-censoring that wouldn’t allow them to tell the truth about who Obama was.

She held up a white envelope with handwritten notes, which she referred to as a “redneck” version of elitist Karl Rove’s white board  and said what that got them was this list of scandals that are destroying our country.  Americans are smarter than the mainstream media give them credit and are doing their own homework and are figuring out the hypocrisy and lies coming from this government.  Patriotic Americans are doing the job the media should be doing, she said.  “For shame that the media are going to continue what they are doing.”

Palin to Appear “On The Record” Tonight, 10pm Eastern

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 26, 2013

greta_sarah2

Tune in to  “On The Record” tonight at 10:00 p.m.  Eastern when Sarah Palin will  join Greta Van Susteren to discuss all of the president’s “phony scandals”

From Palin’s Facebook page:

I’ll be on Greta’s “On the Record” tonight talking about Obama’s “phony scandals” claim. The Democrat Party’s leadership is obviously a lost cause, but take note that the GOP’s out of touch hierarchy is disappointingly not doing the job of calling Obama out and holding the media’s feet to fire, and consequently Obama gets away with claiming that these very serious government scandals are “phony.” They have the mic, but they selfishly don’t use it to call out corruption and incompetence. They’d rather be “liked” by the media. This is a business to them, not a cause. Of course, ten second soundbites aren’t conducive to explaining all of this, but I’ll try.

Gov. Palin: Watch video of Benghazi victim on Greta’s show tonight

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 25, 2013

about an hour ago ·

I was honored to attend a great event today in South Dakota with farmers from all over the country. I’m heading home now, but just wanted to encourage you to tune into Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record” tonight. She’ll be showing a video of one of the four victims killed in Benghazi. So often people in these tragic events become just statistics, but they deserve more. The video really humanizes one of them. He was a real person, not a nameless statistic.

This is the announcement at Gretawire that she is referring to:

TONIGHT at 10pm/OTR: FIRST TIME YOU SEE VIDEO OF BENGHAZI VICTIM (and yes, an AMERICAN HERO) – click to read more

photo copy

So often we hear of Americans doing heroic things and getting killed and we never get to meet those heroes, never get to know them….and worse, we never get to thank them or tell them we admire them.  These Americans are not statistics we don’t care about — they are our fellow Americans. They deserve to be humanized – not hidden –  and this video does just that.

Tonight at 10pm ON THE RECORD, you will watch a video of one of the heroes at Benghazi.  What is he like?  One person watched it and said to me, “he was awesome.”  He sure was.  Every time I watch it I think, “I wish I had known him.”  His smile is so warm.

Make sure you watch tonight at 10pm….and tell your friends and family to watch.  Glen Doherty deserves our attention.  He did much for us.

UPDATE:

Governor Palin followed up with this post this evening:

This is a photo of Glen Doherty, one of the victims of the Benghazi attack. On “On the Record” tonight, Greta Van Susteren will be showing a video of Glen. Please tune in tonight and let’s remember this brave American who gave his life serving our country.
