(Updated) Sarah Palin maintains lead in popularity among GOP primary voters

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 30, 2014

In March of 2012, a PPP national poll found that Governor Palin was more popular among conservative voters than any of the GOP primary candidates:

The talk of a brokered convention never seems to die down and one interesting finding on this poll was that Sarah Palin is far more popular than any of the actual Republican candidates in the race. Her net favorability is +48, with 68% of voters rating her favorably to only 20% with a negative opinion. That compares favorably to +29 for Santorum, +19 for Romney, and -26 for Paul.

Palin is someone GOP delegates might be able to unify around in the case of a hopelessly deadlocked convention. She is seen positively by Gingrich voters (85/7), Santorum supporters (80/10), and Romney ones (57/27) alike. That’s a contrast to Romney who is disliked by both Santorum (38/48) and Gingrich (32/54) voters and Santorum who is disliked by Romney (38/48) voters and only seen narrowly favorably by Gingrich (46/42) backers.

A new poll conducted this month by PPP produced similar findings.  Tony Lee at Breitbart.com reports:

Poll: Sarah Palin Has Highest Favorability Rating Among GOP Primary Voters

Though former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was not included in a Public Policy Polling survey of potential 2016 Republican presidential contenders, she was still overwhelmingly the most liked person among Republican primary voters.

According to Public Policy Polling:

The best liked person we tested on this poll with Republican primary voters is actually Sarah Palin who has a 70/20 favorability rating. She’s followed by Huckabee at 64/18, Ryan at 58/18, Paul at 58/21, Bush at 56/18, Cruz at 45/20, and Christie at 40/38. Most of those numbers are similar to what they were a month ago but Christie’s seen a substantial drop from +18 at 47/29 a month ago to his new +2 net favorability.

The left-leaning polling outfit asked Republican primary voters, “Given the choices of Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, and Scott Walker, who would you most like to see as the GOP candidate for President in 2016?”

[…]

The poll asked respondents how they viewed Palin in a separate question at the conclusion of the poll, and Palin’s favorability numbers show why former South Carolina Senator and Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint said that Palin’s endorsement was the most influential in a Republican primary. The poll was conducted January 23 to 26 and has a margin of error of +/- 4.6 percentage points.

Ahhhh. Matt Drudge tweeted a link to Tony Lee’s article:

POLL: Palin has highest favorables among GOP primary voters…

(Updated) Gov. Palin responds to Obama’s SOTU: “We’re obviously on a dangerous path.”

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 29, 2014

Governor Palin responded to Obama’s State of the Union address today on Facebook:

If you skipped huddling around the TV last night for the State of the Union address because you’ve heard it all before, plus you were just busy with life, well… so did I. Putting the real world on hold to watch the fantasy declaration of “utopia’s-on-its-way” just isn’t efficient.

My truck radio was tuned in though. And driving kids to and from ball games with me negotiating control of the dial allowed me to hear what I’d forebodingly anticipated. Later, reading the President’s remarks on my cell phone made sitting on sticky steel bleachers (that exacerbate parents’ sore backs) that much more uncomfortable. It was all confirmation that we HAVE heard it all before – how more government is supposedly the answer. But the extreme hubris and naïveté that emanated from that speech was something new and alarming.

Ronald Reagan said the nine most frightening words in the English language are “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Well, last night’s promise to grow even more unaffordable, unsustainable bureaucracy confirms we need rescuing from government like never before.

Consider all the “help” a bloated bankrupt federal government has given us…

In an attempt to “fix” our health care system, government has taken away our health insurance and forced us to buy worse plans we don’t want and can’t afford.

To “stimulate” the economy, government blew a trillion dollars on a failed stimulus scheme that sunk us deeper into such a pile of debt that our great-great-great grandchildren won’t be able to pay it off. And our government still wants to blow more money we don’t have on “investments” that will incur more deficits year after year.

To “lead” us to energy independence, government throws billions at bankrupt boondoggle green energy gimmicks that conveniently reward campaign donors. Meanwhile, the President stymies development of conventional resources that we actually use and he kills a pipeline that’s guaranteed to provide jobs and reliable energy.

To “create” jobs, government has created more burdensome regulations and requirements and sat back to watch as a record number of Americans simply quit the workforce and gave up trying to find jobs that government can never create.

Speaking of which, while claiming to be concerned with job creation for American workers, our government is trying to ram through amnesty, which will result in a flood of foreign workers competing with Americans for the few jobs there are.

These examples prove that growing government isn’t the answer; rather, it’s the problem. It’s tempting to tune out rhetoric like last night’s naive promises that this time will be different, but we must not ignore it! Between the hubris of an executive branch governing by fiat, to the arrogance of believing it can spy on citizens’ communications and unleash the IRS to harass people who happen to disagree with the President, it’s now more important than ever for us to press in and pay attention.

Why? Because we’re obviously on a dangerous path, but “We the People” don’t have to be “We the Sheeple” and just get shepherded towards a fundamental transformation that’s against America’s will. There’s another way! This nation can shine again with the elbow grease we as individuals can provide! But we mustn’t let a statist-leaning government dull our dedicated efforts. So pay attention. Get involved. Understand the way words are manipulated by politicians who practice to deceive, so that we can DO something about it. For instance, proving he’s immune to irony, the President used the phrase “fairness and equality under the law” at the end of last night’s address. This is the same President who has been arbitrarily amending his signature legislation, Obamacare, practically every other day to give breaks to his cronies and leave the rest of us without “connections” out in the cold. I guess some of us are less fair and equal under Obama’s laws.

The last thing we need right now is more “help” from big government. In this mid-term year, we need to send new leadership to D.C. to get government back on our side and off our aching backs.

Thankfully, November is just around the corner.

Tea Party Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee also responded to Obama’s SOTU. The Right Scoop has a compilation of videos of their responses as well as the GOP response  here.   Breitbart.com has video here of Senator Cruz’s interview with Jake Tapper last night after the SOTU.   Tapper informed viewers that Senator Cruz would have a scathing article in the Wall Street Journal today entitled “The Imperial Presidency of Barack Obama.”  Here is an excerpt (h/tp to ConservativeByte.com for the link):

Ted Cruz: The Imperial Presidency of Barack Obama

In the nation’s history, there is simply no precedent for an American president so wantonly ignoring federal law.

By Ted Cruz

Jan. 28, 2014 6:57 p.m. ET

Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the president’s persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat. On Monday, Mr. Obama acted unilaterally to raise the minimum wage paid by federal contracts, the first of many executive actions the White House promised would be a theme of his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

The president’s taste for unilateral action to circumvent Congress should concern every citizen, regardless of party or ideology. The great 18th-century political philosopher Montesquieu observed: “There can be no liberty where the legislative and executive powers are united in the same person, or body of magistrates.” America’s Founding Fathers took this warning to heart, and we should too.

Rule of law doesn’t simply mean that society has laws; dictatorships are often characterized by an abundance of laws. Rather, rule of law means that we are a nation ruled by laws, not men. That no one—and especially not the president—is above the law. For that reason, the U.S. Constitution imposes on every president the express duty to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”

Yet rather than honor this duty, President Obama has openly defied it by repeatedly suspending, delaying and waiving portions of the laws he is charged to enforce. When Mr. Obama disagreed with federal immigration laws, he instructed the Justice Department to cease enforcing the laws. He did the same thing with federal welfare law, drug laws and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

President Obama has a different approach. As he said recently, describing his executive powers: “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.” Under the Constitution, that is not the way federal law is supposed to work.

The Obama administration has been so brazen in its attempts to expand federal power that the Supreme Court has unanimously rejected the Justice Department’s efforts to expand federal power nine times since January 2012.

There is no example of lawlessness more egregious than the enforcement—or nonenforcement—of the president’s signature policy, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama has repeatedly declared that “it’s the law of the land.” Yet he has repeatedly violated ObamaCare’s statutory text.

[…]

In other words, rather than go to Congress and try to provide relief to the millions who are hurting because of the “train wreck” of ObamaCare (as one Senate Democrat put it), the president instructed private companies to violate the law and said he would in effect give them a get-out-of-jail-free card—for one year, and one year only. Moreover, in a move reminiscent of Lewis Carroll’s looking-glass world, President Obama simultaneously issued a veto threat if Congress passed legislation doing what he was then ordering.

In the more than two centuries of our nation’s history, there is simply no precedent for the White House wantonly ignoring federal law and asking private companies to do the same. As my colleague Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa asked, “This was the law. How can they change the law?”

[…]

In the past, when Republican presidents abused their power, many Republicans—and the press—rightly called them to account. Today many in Congress—and the press—have chosen to give President Obama a pass on his pattern of lawlessness, perhaps letting partisan loyalty to the man supersede their fidelity to the law.

But this should not be a partisan issue. In time, the country will have another president from another party. For all those who are silent now: What would they think of a Republican president who announced that he was going to ignore the law, or unilaterally change the law? Imagine a future president setting aside environmental laws, or tax laws, or labor laws, or tort laws with which he or she disagreed.

That would be wrong—and it is the Obama precedent that is opening the door for future lawlessness. As Montesquieu knew, an imperial presidency threatens the liberty of every citizen. Because when a president can pick and choose which laws to follow and which to ignore, he is no longer a president.

Mr. Cruz, a Republican senator from Texas, serves as the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights.

Read the rest here.

Senator Cruz has the same fighting spirit for our country as Governor Palin, who was instrumental in getting him elected to Congress.   May God bless all of the above-mentioned patriots and give them success in their efforts to take back our nation and defeat Obama and the radical left machine’s agenda that is destroying our country.

Palin: Get a clue, brass. Quickly.

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on January 6, 2014

FB14_0106

Earlier today Gov. Palin shared the above photo and this message on her Facebook page.  A Blue Star mom and an avid supporter of our military, Gov. Palin once again calls out this administration for their treatment of our nation’s finest.

 

Look, U.S. Military top brass, some of us are known for supporting our troops 110%, even encouraging our own kids in their voluntary, sacrificial enlistments. We send them off with blessings as you send them off to war. You keep pulling stunts like this, and how long do you think our military enthusiasm keeps up? Get a clue, brass. Quickly. You keep up these new double standards and this recent discrimination against Christians, and the greatest military power on earth will soon be “fundamentally transformed” into a weakened, involuntary and unrecognizable mere bureaucratic entity. Obviously you need a new commander-in-chief who sincerely believes in freedom and respects the fact we need to keep our finest keeping us free, but until that time, exert some brass cojones and re-embrace American military ethos.

2014 A Year of New Opportunities for America

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 1, 2014

I’m sure many of us breathed a sigh of relief as 2013 turned into 2014.  So much occurred last year that brought harm to our nation.  But this year we have another chance to reclaim our founding principles and restore liberties that have been compromised.   Much progress was made in the 2010 midterm elections.  Now we begin the process of putting God-fearing patriots who love our nation and respect our Constitution into office.  May God give us the voice and the strength to take back the Senate this year and hold on to the House so that we have a Congress that can stand its ground against those who would undermine our Republic.

The following prayer was written at the beginning of 2012 and recognized the importance of the presidential election that year.  I think it applies equally this year to the significance of the 2014 elections, which could be the last chance we have to turn things around and take our nation back.

A New Year’s Prayer for America

by: Joe Dan Gorman, JoeDanMedia

As we begin what is arguably the most important year in modern history of our country—I would like to offer this prayer for America.

Dear Lord, give us the patience and strength….

  • to comprehend the magnitude of what we are willingly and arrogantly throwing away.
  • to help us–if even but for a brief moment– to feel the pain of those who came before us and sacrificed to create and to protect this ‘one nation, under God.’
  • and to feel the love of God & country—that inspired some to give all.
  • to help us open our neighbor’s eyes to certain truths, more specifically, that the fight for freedom is a never-ending battle and there are certain elements that will never rest until the USA is no more.
  • Give us the strength to set aside our selfishness and embrace selflessness so we may once again provide FOR our children… not place burdens upon them.
  • that we may regain the faith and desire to rebuild that “shining city on the hill”— this “one nation under God, indivisible’ provides ‘liberty and justice for ALL”—NOT liberty & justice just for a select few breathtakingly selfish, anti-God, big government socialists.

As we stand here at the precipice of [2014]— the lights are going dark at a frightening pace—but the United States of America has faced dark days before  and with the strength of God’s love we somehow always prevailed.

Now we must once again summon this unparalleled strength, courage  and faith…  so we may fight the fight…we know is right.

Because this war’s not over…

God bless the United States of America…. OORAH!!!!!!

View accompanying video and read more here.

As we look forward to better days ahead for America, we at SPIB want to wish all of you a very happy and blessed New Year and personal blessings for you and your families.  May 2014 bring good health and prosperity to you and all your loved ones.  May it be a year to remember as we reclaim the nation that God Himself birthed in Liberty.
