Palin: Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition Roundup
Posted by Jackie Siciliano on November 11, 2013
Gov. Sarah Palin spoke at the Family Banquet for the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition Saturday night and by all accounts, her message was well-received. The following was posted to Palin’s Facebook page:
It was wonderful to see so many inspiring and patriotic Iowans tonight at the Faith & Freedom Coalition dinner. They join other hard working Americans as the wind beneath the wings of our great republic, and their hard work and activism make a difference!
Tony Lee over at Breitbart has had two articles featured on Palin’s Iowa appearance, the first being “China Will Be ‘Foreign Master’ If America Doesn’t Resolve Debt Crisis”
Saturday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin compared the United States’ debt to slavery, warning Americans about the dangers of being “beholden” to China if the nation’s debt crisis is not resolved.
Speaking at an Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition event to kick off the 2014 midterm season, Palin said the country’s “free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China.”
“It’s going to be like slavery when that note is due,” Palin said of the debt the country is accumulating. “We’re going to be beholden to a foreign master… because there is no plan coming out of Washington, D.C. to stop the incurrence of debt, is there?” More
An additional article by Tony Lee, “Americans Shouldn’t Have Faith in ‘Arrogant’ Church of Big Government” said:
On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted the “scrooges” waging a “war on Christmas” and their “zealot-like” faith in an “arrogant” church of big government run by the supposed best and the brightest that has only caused “irreparable harm” to America. <>She said the “arrogant” church of government does not have “faith in your ability to govern yourself,” so “you should not have faith in it” because “it does not have faith in us.”
Speaking at an Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition dinner, Palin said “enough is enough” of the “politically-correct police out there” and blasted the scrooges waging a “War on Christmas.”
Palin said Americans needed to take action to resist the “fundamental transformation” of society that many Americans “never signed up for.” Echoing themes from her book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas, which comes out on Tuesday, Palin said that “religious freedom is under attack,” and religion is “pushed out of the public square” and “censored.” Palin said one will see the censorship and double standards “blatantly come this holiday season.” More
While in Iowa, Palin also drew attention to “Puppy Jake Foundation”, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping military veterans through the assistance of well bred and highly trained service dogs.
From Palin’s Facebook page:
Todd and I had a great time visiting with friends — furry and otherwise — in Des Moines tonight supporting the Puppy Jake Foundation. Thanks to our hosts Becky Beach and the entire Puppy Jake team for allowing us to highlight the positive work they’re doing with these service dogs to support our brave soldiers returning home. It was great to visit with Sen. Mike Lee there tonight, too!
Now, hopefully Todd’s been won over and will agree it’s time to add another set of paws to the family! Please “like” the Puppy Jake Foundation on Facebook and visit their website to find out how you can help our vets. (And put in a good word to Todd for me… he’s the one who’s always said, “The more, the merrier!”)
The DesMoines Register also featured a story on the Puppy Jake Foundation and entitled it “Sarah Palin uses star power to shine spotlight on Iowa service dogs”:
Sarah Palin is using her star power to draw attention to an Iowa program that trains service dogs for injured military veterans – and the donations immediately started rolling in.
Palin, a conservative pundit and 2008 vice presidential candidate, cuddled several puppies from the Puppy Jake Foundation at a gathering at a central Iowa home Friday night organized so that she could meet the dogs’ raisers/trainers/foster parents.
“She was talking to her husband, Todd, and kind of razzing him about getting a puppy and how adorable they were,” said Robin Lickteig, the puppy trainer who hosted the get-together at her Cumming home. More
