Billy Graham Library to Host Gov. Palin for Book Signing

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on November 24, 2013

Grahamlibrary1_13_12-06The Billy Graham Library has announced that Gov. Sarah Palin will bring her “Good Tidings and Great Joy; Protecting the Heart of Christmas” book tour their Charlotte, NC location on December 6th.  The following is the press release from The Billy Graham Library:

 

Former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, will be at the Billy Graham Library to sign copies of her new holiday book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Dec. 6. Her book revisits our traditional roots and the true meaning of Christmas. It is a call to action to readers to defend and openly celebrate the joys of their Christianity, and to say to one another, “Merry Christmas!”

In Good Tidings and Great Joy, Palin calls for bringing back the freedom to express the Christian values of the season. She asserts the importance of preserving Jesus Christ in Christmas—in public displays, school concerts, pageants and our expressions to one another—and laments the over-commercialization and homogenization of Christmas in today’s society.

To reserve a signed book, come to Ruth’s Attic Bookstore at the Billy Graham Library. Upon purchasing a reserved book, you will receive a receipt and wristband while supplies last. You must bring the receipt and wristband to the book signing to gain access to the event and receive your book. No outside books will be allowed. No exceptions. No refunds. Limit 4 (four) signed books per person.

For more information, call 704-401-3200.

Palin: Day 8 of “Good Tidings and Great Joy” Book Tour 11/20/13

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on November 24, 2013

First stop on November 20th for the “Good Tidings and Great Joy” book tour was Sam’s Club of Tyler, TX.  Gov. Palin posted a Facebook message of thanks to those that attended:

Thank you, thank you, Tyler, Texas! Great to be back to see many whom I’d met at the Oil Palace after my pro-American Energy speech. Really great to meet new friends today, too! Your gracious Southern welcome warms us right up. Special thanks to everyone who joined us today and provided fun, laughter, and new energy in the book line. And what a super staff at Sam’s Club! Now on to that other energy-producing sister state America loves – Oklahoma! (Alaskans of a certain age will remember an infamous bumper sticker about Texans and Okies which was popular when finishing construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline in the 70’s… but I promise it was never on my truck! “Happiness is a Texan flying south with an Okie under each arm.” Just in jest and we love you guys! Er, y’all.)

The following was published by KLTV9:

TYLER, TX (KLTV) –

Hundreds of East Texans lined up for hours Wednesday morning for their shot at meeting former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Palin was in Tyler Wednesday, a pit stop that is part of her nationwide tour promoting her new book.

Many people in line drove or even flew in for a chance to meet the former Alaskan governor.

One of those men was Michael Jenkins, who was first in line for the book-signing frenzy. Jenkins arrived just after 11 p.m. on Tuesday.

“This is my third time to see her,” Jenkins said. “The first time we made it over 20 hours before and we were not even close to the front of the line and I just wanted to make sure I got a spot in line.”

That meant braving low overnight temperatures in the 40s.

“I stayed in my car,” Jenkins said. “I had a blanket wrapped up right here, and then the rest of the time I was in my car. It was too cold.”

Marilyn Mcneely hit the road from Jefferson at 3 a.m. Wednesday morning.

“I expected a long line this morning,” Mcneely said. “I almost jumped for joy when I saw I was number six.”

Number six in a line filled with hundreds, all waiting for a few brief seconds with the former governor. But it was all worth it for people like Shirley Greene, who is actually from Idaho.

“I had a trip planned to visit a friend in the Dallas area,” Green said. “So I rented a car and got up early this morning and drove down.”

Greene thinks of Palin as somewhat of a family friend.  Video & more

From Texas it was on to Edmond, OK where an evening signing was scheduled at the Mardel Christian & Education Supply.  Gov. Palin posted the following via Facebook:

O! K! Last night in Oklahoma, Kathy Young (see photo) shared her “The Best Peanut Butter Carb Bar EVER” recipe with me – sounded so good we almost ate the Christmas card it was written on! Thanks, Kathy, and congratulations on celebrating your Golden Wedding anniversary during the Christmas holiday at the same church in Edmond where you were married. As promised, I’ll make the Carb Bars when I get home. Friends, enjoy the tradition of sharing recipes as I did in “Good Tidings and Great Joy.” Or begin the tradition at our book events!

Thank you, Oklahoma, for supporting the “Good Tidings and Great Joy” message last night. So many inspiring people are committed to protect the heart of Christmas – and your efforts mean a world of difference in today’s culture. Lots of conscientious parents and grandparents brought youngsters on a school night to share early Christmas cheer, testifying powerfully to sincere support. It was a joy to see so many happy faces sharing your Okie hospitality. Kudos to the thoughtful staff at Mardel; thanks for putting up with our healthy “energetic” chaos that inevitably accompanies big events! Now on to Arkansas and Kansas for ramped up empowering of good Americans so we can stand united for joyous tradition, faith, family and freedom.

UPDATE: Some of you have asked for that Peanut Butter Carb Bar Recipe that Kathy Young gave me last night. Here’s Kathy’s recipe:

The Best Carb Bar Recipe EVER by Kathy Young of Edmond, OK

1 c. Honey
1 c. Brown Sugar
1 c. Peanut Butter with nuts
4 c. Cereal – any kind (I love Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds)
Additional ingredients:

1) Microwave Honey, Brown Sugar, and Peanut Butter on high 3 minutes in large bowl stirring every minute

2) Add Cereal to warm mixture

Gov. Palin also shared a photo album consisting of twelve wonderful photos from the Edmond event.  Once again, I’ll point out that it’s quite obvious that Gov. Palin really enjoys meeting her supporters.

KFOR TV published the following on Palin’s book signing event:

EDMOND, Okla. – Former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin made an appearance in the Sooner State.She’s hosted a signing event in Edmond for her new holiday book.

Her new novel is titled “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.”

The signing was at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Mardel near 33rd St. and Boulevard.

The first 750 customers were guaranteed a spot in line but only if they had a wristband. Video here.

The schedule for first leg of the book tour can be found here and I’m looking forward to the announcement  of the second leg stops.

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on November 24, 2013

We’d especially like to thank the gracious people of Plano, Texas, who came out today and were so understanding about today’s abbreviated event. Also, thank you to the helpful and kind employees at Costco.

The following photo gallery from the Plano event was uploaded by user “jester119”

While in the area, Rafael Cruz, father of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) held a fundraiser for Palin’s SarahPAC.  Gov. Palin, via her Facebook page, offered the following message of thanks to Mr. Cruz:

A big Texas thanks to Rafael Cruz, Senator Ted Cruz’s father, for hosting us last night with other SarahPAC supporters. It’s inspiring to hear Rafael’s full-throated defense of American exceptionalism. As an American of Cuban descent, Rafael has witnessed first hand what it means to live without freedom, and that has made him an eloquent and motivated American patriot. God bless him and all the SarahPAC supporters we met yesterday. Together we’re working to restore our exceptional nation!

Gov. Palin: Obamacare itself – not the website – is the problem

Posted by Dr. Fay on November 24, 2013

Video retrieved from sarahnettoo.

Governor Palin talked with Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday earlier today about the Obamacare rollout debacle, the Senate “nuclear option” rule change, and Martin Bashir’s comments and subsequent apology.

Governor Palin said the Obamacare website wasn’t the problem, that Obamacare itself was.  She said that the Senate rule change was a distraction, a double standard, more Democrat hypocrisy, and that it “stinks.”   Tony Lee at Breitbart has captured her response to the Bashir comments:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted the hypocrisy of the mainstream media elite for brushing off vile attacks against conservative women in an appearance on Fox News Sunday.

Host Chris Wallace asked Palin about MSNBC host Martin Bashir’s suggestion that someone should defecate and urinate in her mouth, and she said MSNBC “is condoning those types of statements because there has been no punishment of the fella who’s said those words.”

She said such hypocrisy is a “given when a conservative women” is attacked, and the media elite just “pooh-pooh it, laugh it off.”

Palin mentioned that even though Bashir got so offended that she compared the federal debt to slavery in its plain, non-racial meaning, Bashir has “invoked the analogy of slavery” as well, emphasizing that the definition of slavery is being “beholden to a master.” Wallace agreed that Palin’s comparison of the debt to slavery was “unobjectionable.”

As for personally taking shots like that, Palin said she had a choice of becoming “bitter” or “better.” She said she does not have to accept Bashir’s “vile” and “evil” remarks and can “move on” and “charge forth.”

Palin did warn those in the “media elite bubble” that they better not attack someone who is “defenseless like a vulnerable child.” Palin’s son Trig, who has Down Syndrome, has often been ridiculed by the mainstream media elite that she often denounces.

“Well, if you wanna see a mamma grizzly get riled up and slap that person down, then you come after a vulnerable child,” Palin said. “In this case, he didn’t come after a vulnerable child. I can defend myself. I can take it.”

In a letter that her political action committee, SarahPAC, wrote to MSNBC President Phil Griffin and NBC News President Deborah Turness, which Breitbart News exclusively obtained last week, SarahPAC Treasurer Tim Crawford pointed out MSNBC’s hypocrisy for not disciplining Bashir, even though Bashir made his comments on air while Alec Baldwin, whom the network suspended for two weeks, made the anti-gay comments for which he got punished off the air.

Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters also has a transcript of her response to Bashir’s remarks here.
