Gov. Palin: GOP needs to stand firm and not blink on Obamacare

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 30, 2013


Video retrieved from sarahnettoo.

Governor Palin talked with Neil Cavuto on FOX Business tonight about the showdown between the Senate Democrats and the House Republicans and the possibility of a government shutdown.  She referred to it as “governing in chaos”  and responded to one remark by a House GOPer who blamed the Tea Party by saying that the Tea Party Is not going anywhere.   In other words, we’re here to stay.  She also repeated her saying that polls are for strippers and cross country skiers.

When asked about the backlash of a government shutdown against the GOP, Governor Palin replied that after a shutdown in the 1990’s, the GOP gained two new Senate seats and a majority in the House and that welfare reform followed.

Gov. Palin called on the GOP to stand firm and not to blink.   She said to just let the government chill a little bit.  She said that the military should be paid and Social Security checks issued, but  that nonessential workers shouldn’t be on the payroll anyway.

Gov. Palin: This graphic says it all

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 29, 2013

Governor Palin posted this graphic and the following comment on her Facebook page yesterday:

——————

 

A friend sent me this graphic today. It says it all. “If there’s a government shut down, who will spy on me, waste my money and have contempt for me?”

We could add so much more to this list, friends. For example, if the government shuts down, who will:
*block responsible resource development
*borrow more money from foreign countries to give to foreign countries
*mortgage my kids’ future to bail out their friends on Wall Street & finance their big government crony capitalism
*”misplace” IRS receipts and ledgers to the tune of tens of millions
*stockpile ammo at DHS
*commandeer pro athletes to testify in front of Congress while watching bureaucrats plead the Fifth

Please feel free to add to the list with your own comments below. I so appreciate your great comments and “likes” and “shares” on these Facebook posts!

Gov. Palin: Cruz and Lee acted as the grassroots’ flushing dogs

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 29, 2013

Governor Palin posted a link to her latest op-ed at Breitbart.com on her Facebook page yesterday:

Sarah Palin shared a link.

New op-ed: “Flushing Critters & Retrieving 2014.” The photo at the top is me & my Dad with his antler retriever lab, Bo!

Here is her op-ed:

Exclusive–Palin: Flushing Critters and Retrieving 2014

—————

A simple fact is missing from all the media hysteria and political establishment temper tantrums over Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee’s attempt to defund Obamacare.

Americans are getting slammed by Obamacare right now. Workforces are decimated as health care prices rise. Public opinion is on our side. If now was not the time to unite and fight it, when was? Those who are attacking Cruz and Lee’s efforts have forgotten how negotiations are won.

Use as an example the negotiations a governor of energy-rich Alaska must engage in with powerful multinational oil tycoons. In my experience, I found that the key to achieving success for the people you’re elected to serve is to take a firm position, stand solid, and negotiate from there when the other guy is ready to take you seriously. You fight as hard as you can with whatever small edge you’ve got until the other guy respects you enough to wise up, sit down, and come to a mutually acceptable agreement. You get nothing at all if you preemptively surrender before the battle even commences.

Imagine how much stronger the GOP’s hand would have been if every Republican (and those Democrats who’ve finally admitted Obamacare’s devastating flaws) stood together against cloture in order to prevent Harry Reid from cutting off debate and stripping Obamacare defunding from the bill?

Not only would there have been pressure on red state Democrats up for re-election to join the right cause, there would have been pressure on Reid and the White House to negotiate agreements. Even if the GOP couldn’t have defunded all of Obamacare, they could have negotiated some relief for average Americans who now feel they can do nothing but brace for the coming train wreck. We average Americans know we’ll never get the exemptions and favors Obama gave his political cronies and Congress, but any relief for the middle class would have been welcomed.

But Republicans got nothing from squabbling with each other and denouncing (on and off the record) the brave men who tried to do something.

Ted Cruz and Mike Lee fought to fulfill the campaign promises every Republican made, and their actions have been revelatory for all of us.

Hunters know what flushing dogs do. Cruz and Lee were acting as the grassroots’ flushing dogs. Their actions showed us who was willing to stand up for hard working Americans and who wasn’t. We thank Senators Vitter, Paul, Crapo, Enzi, Fischer, Roberts, Scott, Heller, Grassley, Toomey, Moran, Rubio, Shelby, Risch, Inhofe, Portman, and Sessions for standing with Cruz and Lee.

In 2010, a galvanized grassroots rallied against Obamacare to carry Republicans to victory. But in 2012, many in the grassroots stayed home, and we saw how that turned out for the GOP.

Unfortunately, the message of some politicians today seems to be: “Whoopsie, seems I can’t fulfill my election promises, but vote for me again and I promise to do what I promised last time.”

Sorry, that doesn’t cut it. America, you deserve better. If they can’t do anything with the power you gave them through their elected office, then you deserve someone else to give it a try.

2014 is just around the corner, and we’re ready for it. Support those who do us a favor by flushing out politicians wanting to hide. Retrieving liberty must be the point in all this.

(Updated) Palin and Cruz join in the plea for Pastor Saeed’s release

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 26, 2013


Video retrieved from Andy Moore.

I was so impressed to see Senator Ted Cruz kneeling  with Jordan Sekulow and the pastors who were praying for Pastor Saeed Abedini’s release at the vigil in front of the White House today.  Like Governor Palin, he is not ashamed of his faith.   It reminded me of George Washington praying at Valley Forge.   Governor Palin and Senator Cruz are definitely made of the same cloth, with a servant’s heart and a sincere faith.

Governor Palin posted this appeal on her Facebook page today:

Please read Billy Graham’s impassioned plea to the new president of Iran imploring the release of the imprisoned pastor Saeed Abedini. Bristol has been covering Saeed’s story for a long time on her blog. We are all so grateful to Rev. Graham for taking out this full-page ad in the New York Times to bring light to this terrible injustice.

President Obama, please act on this by using your position to appeal for Saeed’s release. We often ask ourselves, “What would Reagan do?” Well, in the 1980s, President Reagan worked behind the scenes to appeal to the Soviets for the release of Russian Christian dissidents who wanted to emigrate, and because of Reagan’s quiet work in the background, these Christians were finally allowed to leave the former Soviet Union. Reagan used the exceptional position of POTUS to appeal for justice, and it worked. Now we need our current president to appeal to Iran’s new president for the release of this imprisoned Christian.

Kudos to Rev. Graham for taking action today. I have so much respect for him. As my dad wrote about in his book, Billy Graham was the man who led my mom to Christ years ago, which resulted in the rest of the family becoming Christians in the 70s.

– Sarah Palin

She posted a link to this article by Bristol:

Billy Graham Speaks Out for Pastor Saeed

Today, I was so touched to see that Franklin Graham placed a full page ad in the New York Times, urging the new President of Iran to free Saeed Abedini, an American who is in Iran’s Evin prison.  There, prisoners are routinely hanged outside their cells to terrorize the other inmates.

All across our nation – and the world — people are gathering to hold prayer vigils.  He certainly needs them.  Saeed is being beaten, persecuted, and tortured simply because of his faith.  (I’ve written about him several times, but we have to keep fighting for him until his release!)

What can you do to help?  If you can’t attend a rally, you can send a letter directly to the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, just like Rev. Graham. To send your own letter, click here.

What else can you do?

Attend a vigil.

Sign a petition.

Tell people about it on Facebook and Twitter

Pray.

Thank you, Rev. Graham, for continuing for speak out for the oppressed!
——————–

Our prayers are with Pastor Saeed and his family.  May the Lord bring him a quick deliverance and release from prison and a safe return to his wife and children in the States.  And may He give Pastor Saeed all the strength and protection he needs in the meantime.  May Pastor Saeed’s stand for Christ be a testimony to God’s goodness and grace.

Gov. Palin: Obama’s U.N. speech delusions and contradictions are truly unbelievable

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 25, 2013

Our president was delusional and contradictory when he declared in his speech before the U.N. General Assembly, “The world is more stable than it was five years ago” (exactly when he swooped into office to calm the rising tides). But then in the next breath he listed examples of how it’s not more stable. All he needed to do was ask the Christians of the Middle East who are being targeted everywhere we look by Islamic extremists on their deadly march. This same president has declared that “Al Qaeda is on the run.” Yes, they apparently ran to places like Egypt, Libya, Kenya, Syria, and perhaps here next for all we know. It’s not like they haven’t attacked our homeland before. Good Lord, “delusional” is a generous term. The world right now is a tinderbox, hardly stable.

Instead of calling out the President’s deceptive comments, his reliable lapdogs in the media turn their attention and ire on Ted Cruz for daring to stand up for the American people. Maybe if Ted had worn pretty pink running shoes he’d have gotten more respect from the same leftwing media that gushed over the Texan state senator who filibustered in the Texas legislature for the right to late term abortions of babies (a position at odds with the sentiment of the majority of Texans and Americans).

See the link below for more on Obama’s U.N. speech delusions and contradictions. It’s truly unbelievable.

(Updated) Palin continues to #StandWithCruz during epic battle against Obamacare

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 25, 2013

Like most patriotic Americans, Governor Palin is standing with Cruz and the Senators who have been working with him since yesterday afternoon to filibuster the cloture vote in the Senate on the House of Representative’s Continuing Resolution to fund the government and defund Obamacare. Their goal is to prevent Senator Harry Reid from adding an amendment to fund Obamacare and then pass the bill with a simple majority.

Last night, Governor Palin posted the photo above on her Facebook page with this comment:


Ted & Mike are going strong for over 10hrs now. We can hear you all the way in Wasilla. DC better be listening! #MakeDCListen

Earlier in the evening, she retweeted a photo of Senator Cruz’s daughters listening as he read ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ as a bedtime story for them and then compared it to Obamacare.

RT Pic of daughters as he reads them Green Eggs & Ham.

Governor Palin also supported Cruz’s efforts during her appearance on Hannity last night.

——————–

Governor Palin jokingly recommended that if Senator Cruz ran out of material that he could start reading the Obamacare bill “since no one else there on the Senate floor has actually read it.”   She said that maybe Nancy Pelosi would be watching CSPAN and say, “Oh, that’s what’s in it!”   She held up a large Bible and said that even with its enlarged font and commentary, it is only 1600 pages, as compared to the 20,000 pages of Obamacare.  She predicted another “Reagan uprising” in a couple of years to return the nation to its greatness after Obama leaves office.

As Hannity explained, if Republicans vote for cloture, they will be giving Senator Harry Reid the ability to strip the legislation to defund Obamacare from the House’s bill.  Voting against cloture gives Republicans the opportunity to stop Obamacare by defunding it.  Senator Cruz has explained this reasoning in detail in his op-ed at Real Clear Politics.  It would only take 46 votes against cloture to accomplish this.

Even earlier in the evening, Governor Palin tweeted words of encouragement to Senator Cruz:

Stay strong ! Wear comfortable shoes. As we did for Rand Paul, fortifying caribou jerky is on its way

We hope Senator Cruz had an opportunity to enjoy the moose jerky during his epic stand against the monstrosity known as Obamacare! May God give him and the Senators who are standing with him the strength and the words to continue this crucial battle. And may they win a major victory today for the American people, whom they represent. As Senator Cruz has emphasized over and over during his filibuster, DC needs to listen to the American people.

UPDATE:

This morning, Governor Palin posted this photo and comment on her Facebook page:


Piper’s getting ready for school & Ted’s still going! Encourage kids to learn US history through this & endure to do what’s right. #MakeDCListen

Gov. Palin: We already have a third party

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 24, 2013

Video retrieved from sarahnettoo.

Governor Palin talked with Neil Cavuto earlier today about Senator Ted Cruz’s filibuster of the cloture vote for the House’s Continuing Resolution to fund the government while defunding Obamacare.    If such a vote occurs, Senate Leader Harry Reid has expressed his intention to  add an amendment to fund Obamacare while allowing no other amendments and then passing the bill with a 51 vote majority.  Senator Cruz maintains that if 46 Republican senators vote against cloture, they can stop Reid from funding Obamacare.  (See his op-ed posted at Real Clear Politics below.)

Governor Palin was very supportive of the filibuster and mocked the alternative as “surrendering so we can win later” and as “waving a white flag.”  She defended her relationship with Senator McCain while acknowledging that they don’t agree on all issues, such as this one.  She said that stopping Obamacare is the first step in stopping the fundamental transformation of this country.

Senator Cruz has done an excellent job with his fascinating and educational filibuster, which has been aided by excellent questions and remarks from other Republican Senators, including Senators Lee, Paul, Rubio, Sessions, Roberts, Vitter, Enzi, and Inhofe.  Cruz’s recitation of ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ for his children at home was outstanding, especially since he then compared it to Obamacare, which he said Americans do NOT like.

Here is Senator Cruz’s op-ed about the importance of fighting to defund Obamacare:

The Path to Victory

By Sen. Ted Cruz – September 23, 2013

Just a few weeks ago the Washington establishment said the Republican-led House of Representatives could never pass a funding bill that would keep the government open while defunding Obamacare. They were wrong.

All across the country Americans spoke up, asking Congress to stop this terrible law. Over 1.5 million signed the dontfundit.com petition, and thousands more sign every day. Tens of thousands of calls poured into the offices of senators and congressmen. They changed the dynamic.

As a result, on Friday, House Republicans passed a bill that fully funds government without funding Obamacare, even picking up a couple of Democrat votes.

Now, it’s the Senate’s turn.

If Senate Republicans stay strong and hold true to their previous commitments to defund Obamacare, we will force Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to make a choice: keep the government open, or shut it down in the name of funding a glitch-riddled health care takeover that is killing jobs, wages, and health care benefits all across the nation.

The next step is critical. Senate Republicans should demand a 60-vote threshold for any effort that would add Obamacare funding back into the House bill. This is the battle line: Senate Republicans must stop Reid from rejecting the House bill and adding Obamacare funding with merely 51 votes.

The House bill must be protected.

If implemented, Obamacare will change our entire health care system, impacting the lives of every single American. Securing 60 votes is not too much to ask. Our nation is bitterly divided because there is far too little consensus on major political matters. We need more unity to help heal our country. Sixty votes would help move toward that.

The Democrats may have jammed Obamacare through Congress on a strict, bare-knuckled party-line vote, but it shouldn’t be funded that way.

We know the Democratic leadership wants to fund Obamacare, and it’s certain Leader Reid will use every gimmick, obscure parliamentary trick, and sweetheart deal to do it. After all, that’s how he passed Obamacare in the first place.

Until Reid guarantees a 60-vote threshold on all amendments, a vote for cloture is a vote for Obamacare. It would amount to giving the Democrats a green light to fund Obamacare with 51 votes.

We owe it to our constituents to keep our promise to stop Obamacare. Many in Washington like to talk about “elections having consequences” but seem more intent on focusing on who has power.

It’s time to quit worrying about power and blame and simply do what’s right.

The evidence is pouring in that Obamacare isn’t working. Obamacare is hurting almost every sector of the economy. Universities, restaurants, retailers, museums, and more are all being forced to make brutal adjustments to comply with it.

Even labor unions that once championed this law are decrying how it could destroy the 40-hour workweek for millions of middle-class Americans.

More Americans are losing their insurance each day — despite the president’s promise that if we liked it, we could keep it. Last month, UPS and the University of Virginia said they would drop health insurance for many spouses of their employees because of Obamacare, leaving thousands of husbands and wives scrambling.

Just last week the Cleveland Clinic announced massive layoffs and a $330 million budget cut because of Obamacare. Sea World is slashing hours for part-time workers. Investor’s Business Daily has tallied more than 300 companies that are cutting jobs and benefits because of the law.

Not one more American should lose their job, wages, or health care plans because of this disastrous, train wreck of a law.

If President Obama, his big corporate friends, and members of Congress and their staffs don’t have to live under Obamacare, then no other Americans should, either.

Some argue the law should be delayed. Defunding delays it for everyone, not just the ruling class in DC. In essence, defund exempts everyone from the law. Defund gives a waiver to everyone.

Whether or not Senate Republicans defeat cloture, the question will be whether Harry Reid will demand a government shutdown to force Obamacare on every American. We should not shut down the government, and I hope Reid and President Obama do not do so.

Regardless, the House should stand its ground, and if Reid kills this Continuing Resolution then the House should pass smaller CRs one at a time, starting with the military. Dare Reid to keep voting to shut down the government.

Once Senate Republicans unite, red-state Senate Democrats will be next. And that is how we win — by continuing to mobilize the American people to hold every elected official accountable.

Americans are speaking loud and clear. They don’t want to lose their health plans and be forced into Obamacare exchanges, keep their businesses small to avoid the law’s penalties, and let bureaucrats and politicians in Washington make their health care decisions. Let’s listen.

They deserve a win. I intend to use every tool available to me to defund Obamacare, and am encouraged by the thousands of phone calls, tweets, and emails that come to my office each day.

Republicans have the momentum. Conservatives defeated the president’s gun control measures to deprive Second Amendment rights from law-abiding Americans. We pushed back on his reckless drone policy. We convinced him to seek congressional approval on military action in Syria.

Now, we’re poised to win our biggest victory for the American people yet: defunding Obamacare. All we have to do is have the will to fight.

Ted Cruz is a United States Senator for the state of Texas.
