JULIANNE ORTMAN FOR U.S. SENATE FROM MINNESOTA

The Clown vs. The Mama Grizzly

Al Franken’s career has been a joke; we all know this. The biggest joke of all though is not funny at all because the American people are the punch line. This joke? The fact that Franken has voted 100% (!) of the time with Barack Obama. This just proves what we already knew – Al Franken is a Big Fat Liberal.

Minnesotans are known for their rugged independence. Adherence to any establishment is frowned upon in the state that has “gone rogue” in many recent elections. The only way to beat Al Franken is with a public servant from the people, not from the establishment in Washington, and Julianne Ortman is just that public servant.

Julianne and her husband Ray ran a successful legal practice from their home so they could raise their four young kids. Their law practice specialized in fighting on behalf of small businesses; so, Julianne knows first hand the burden our federal government places on hard-working Americans. As a state senator, Julianne is a conservative champion. She was the first woman to ever head the Senate Tax Committee where she led the effort to balance a $5 billion deficit without raising taxes by a single dollar. Julianne is a fighter for life and for our Second Amendment rights. She is running a grassroots campaign against a well-funded favorite of the Washington GOP establishment whose policy record is a blank slate.

Let’s give voters a contrast this fall: a clown vs. a Mama Grizzly, an Obama 100 Percenter vs. a Blue Star Mom, a talker vs. a doer, and a liberal Obama rubber stamp legislator vs. a proven conservative fighter.

Let’s make this proven conservative the one to take the fight to Al Franken this fall and make him the punch line. Julianne Ortman is the choice. She is good enough, she is smart enough, and doggone it, people like her!

KAREN HANDEL FOR U.S. SENATE FROM GEORGIA

Margaret Thatcher often said: “If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.” This quote rings true in the U.S. Senate race in Georgia in more ways than one. This year’s elections are about who we send to Washington to help restore our country after six years of a disastrous administration. It’s not about who has the best rhetoric, the loudest voice, or the best TV ads. It’s about who we trust to keep their word to fight for conservative principles and grow our movement at the same time.

In the U.S. Senate race in Georgia, Karen Handel is just that candidate. Karen is a champion for protecting life and a proud voice in support of it – one we could use in the Senate. As Chairman of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, she made a name for herself fighting corruption, passing ethics reform, and recouping millions of dollars in stolen taxpayer money. She balanced the budget every year as well. As Georgia’s first Republican Secretary of State, Karen took on the Obama administration to keep Photo-ID in place and ensure that only U.S. citizens vote in Georgia. She cut her department’s waste by nearly 20%, and under her leadership, the Secretary of State’s office became Georgia’s first completely transparent agency by putting all the agency’s expenses online for every taxpayer to see.

Karen has walked the walk when it comes to cutting government waste, providing ethical leadership, and fighting back against big bullying government. We can count on Karen to take her real life skills to Washington to help balance our budget, fight for lower taxes, and do everything she can to keep the government out of our lives.

Voters need to look carefully at a candidate’s record. Look beyond the flashy campaign ads of establishment candidates and the bombastic rhetoric of candidates who claim to be the most conservative in the race. Listen to what Karen says in her debates and candidate forums, and you’ll hear a true conservative leader who can win in November. This Georgia Senate race is very important to the Democrats and has long-term repercussions for 2016 as Democrats test the waters to see if they can win big in a red state with a woman candidate. That is why the GOP needs a strong contender like Karen Handel. She is the conservative candidate who can win this race and hold this seat for the GOP.

GOP voters in Georgia have many choices if they want something said, but Karen Handel is the only choice if we want something done. Karen will get the job done.

Please lend her your support in this critical Senate race. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

LIZBETH BENACQUISTO FOR U.S. HOUSE FROM FLORIDA

We have been lucky to visit southwest Florida on several occasions and know it is one of the warmest places in the country. The warmth comes not only from the sun, but also from the citizens. We met many dedicated patriots in Naples, Florida, on our recent book tour. They deserve better representation than what they have had recently. Lizbeth Benacquisto is the only proven conservative in the race. She served her constituents well and has never forgotten who put her in office – the people. Lizbeth will take these values to Washington to fight for us all.

Lizbeth Benacquisto is a proven conservative with an unwavering commitment to the principles of our Founders and to the sanctity of life. In the Florida State Senate she has a record that demonstrates a willingness to take on special interests and rein in the scope of government. A fierce advocate for her constituents, Lizbeth has introduced and pushed through legislation to protect our senior citizens.

In particular, Lizbeth’s personal triumph over hardship and staunch defense of life is inspiring. In 2010, her opponent, to his detriment, tried to use her past against her; watch her inspiring response here: http://youtu.be/tODVWh6i_MM. We need this fighter and advocate for women and innocent life in Washington!

I admire and respect the good folks supporting other candidates in this race, but we’ll have to disagree on this one. Lizbeth is running against a wealthy self-funded candidate with lots of splashy campaign ads claiming to be a conservative. Since when do conservatives stand for crony capitalism and government bailouts? Please do your homework, voters. Look beyond the fancy anonymous campaign ads. Look at a candidate’s record, not just their rhetoric. Lizbeth is a genuine conservative with a track record to prove it.

What a day for Iowa patriots! Very proud to stand with Joni Ernst because she will be a great commonsense conservative in the U.S. Senate! Her love of country, experience, and solid character – virtues that cross party lines and political ideology – bring real hope to a diverse populace. Even Jimmy Fallon said to vote her in! We heard the news that her likely Democrat opponent took a page from the Obama playbook and disparaged hard working Iowans in a closed-door fundraiser. Liberal Congressman Bruce Braley referred to U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley as “just a farmer from Iowa.” Holy! As an admirer of the hardest workers in America, toiling to feed the world, I have to ask what’s next from a man who would disparage the work ethic and know-how of a farmer? Is insulting the other half of Iowa by slamming them for “bitterly clinging to their guns and religion” up next? I’d stay away from the Iowa State Fair this year if I were you, Mr. Braley. The good productive “just farmers from Iowa” and “bitter clingers” we’ve shared fried butter-on-a-stick with there may have a bone or two to pick.

JONI ERNST FOR U.S. SENATE FROM IOWA

If Nebraska’s Deb Fischer can see through the bull in Washington, then Iowa’s Joni Ernst can help her cut through the pork. Growing up on a hog farm in Southwest Iowa, Joni has taken her “pork cutting” skills to the Iowa State Senate where she has been a champion for life, small government, and lower taxes – voting for the largest tax cut in Iowa history. In Washington, she has pledged to defund Obamacare, limit the size of government, and protect life. As a concealed weapon license holder, she will fight to defend our Second Amendment rights – the NRA has given her an “A” rating.

Joni is a veteran of the Iraq war and continues her service as a Lt. Colonel in the Iowa Army National Guard. She’s been a fighter for freedom both in and out of uniform. Iowa – come together and send this Midwest Mama Grizzly roaring to Washington on her Harley so she can join with the good guys to get our country back on track!

Any question about the type of Senator Joni will be? Check out her first ad – she makes it pretty clear: http://youtu.be/p9Y24MFOfFU

BEN SASSE FOR U.S. SENATE FROM NEBRASKA

Ben Sasse is the clear conservative choice in the Nebraska Senate race. National Review calls him “Nebraska’s Obamacare Nemesis.”

Ben is a proven problem solver. A few years ago, Ben took over as president of Midland University in his hometown. The school was on the verge of bankruptcy, but under Ben’s steady leadership and commitment to make tough decisions and reform old policies, Midland is on the path to recovery and has nearly tripled enrollment. Today, it’s the fastest growing school in the Midwest. We need those kinds of results in D.C.

Ben knows how dysfunctional D.C. is. He’s witnessed firsthand the corrosive effect bad big government policies can have, and he knows that Obamacare is as bad as it gets. As Ben told me, “I have said from the very beginning of this campaign that the problem in D.C. is that we have a government of Democrats with big-government bad ideas and Republicans regularly with no ideas. That is not good enough. We have got to be a party that sells the conservative vision of the future. I have also said that the GOP establishment in this country does not understand that the house is on fire and we have to save this country – not tomorrow, or next year, or at some debt-crisis moment in five years, but now.”

Ben is a leader we need in D.C. now. He won’t forget who sent him there because his life is firmly grounded in his small town Nebraska roots. His family goes to a church where his great-great grandpa carved the altarpiece that is still there today. Ben has his cornhusker common sense and his lovely wife Melissa and their three kids to remind him of what’s important. Melissa is a fellow “hockey mom” to both of Ben’s daughters who play hockey as the only girls on the boy teams. They’ll be able to remind their papa to “Fight like a girl!” in defense of We the People.

Texas, it starts with you!

2014 is here. The choices are becoming clearer, and the battle lines are being drawn. The GOP Beltway crowd has convinced itself that the way to maintain or retake the majority is through compromise and capitulation on important issues like amnesty, Obamacare, and the ever-increasing federal debt. They think that by making deals with a deeply unpopular and divisive incumbent president on issues that Americans oppose, they’ll somehow endear themselves to voters.

Enough is enough. The permanent political class in D.C. won’t listen. So, let’s start putting our efforts behind good new candidates who will go to Washington not to line their own pockets, but to help restore our country. It’s time to put inspiration, ingenuity, and integrity over incumbency in the GOP.

Let’s start in Texas. The lines couldn’t be clearer. Katrina Pierson is an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement. Her life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.

A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms. When asked about Katrina’s primary challenge, he said, “these things happen.” Yes, they do. We all know what happens when we come together to support a good candidate like Katrina – the permanent political class loses and We the People win! We win by electing a fighter we can depend on like Katrina Pierson. Ted Cruz calls Katrina “an utterly fearless principled conservative.” He should know. Katrina was among the conservative grassroots warriors in Texas who worked tirelessly to elect Senator Cruz.

Early voting started yesterday, Texas. Get out now and vote for Katrina. Send a message to the GOP elites on behalf of Katrina, just like you did for Ted Cruz in 2012.

And while you are out there voting for Katrina, check the box for another good conservative – Greg Abbott for Governor of Texas. Like Katrina, Greg has overcome many personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!

You can learn more about Katrina Pierson at: www.katrinaforcongress.com
and more about Greg Abbott at: www.gregabbott.com

God bless you and God bless America.

NAACP Leader Shows True Colors

The NAACP’s attacks on Senator Tim Scott illustrate the anger and increased intolerance of the political left. Having falsely staked the claim of “embracing diversity” we see another example of the left’s “tolerant hug” excluding those who do not subscribe to their liberal agenda. It’s not personal. It’s not racist. It’s not mean spirited. It’s COMMON SENSE to NOT subscribe to their failed liberal policies that lead to dependence on an unstable and bankrupt government.

But here’s another example of how the supposedly tolerant left treats an African American conservative who doesn’t subscribe to their failed liberal agenda:

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/369065/state-naacp-chief-tim-scott-ventriloquists-dummy-andrew-johnson

Tim Scott was raised by a single mother, started working at age 13, faced challenges through school, and then met a mentor – a local Chick-fil-A operator – who taught him how to “think your way out of poverty.” With that, and strong work ethic, Tim’s commonsense conservative roots took hold. Tim became a successful small businessman, Congressman and U.S. Senator. He is an honorable man who judges people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin, and seeks the same for himself.

With too many purposefully dividing America on the basis of race and gender, it’s imperative that we who strive for a truly United States, under God, take a stand! Don’t be afraid to call out hypocritical double standards applied to independent Americans who are continually falsely accused of discrimination and intolerance. Playing small and timid in this era of potentially great progress towards American solidarity helps no one.

Take a stand! Help leaders like Tim Scott get re-elected in 2014. We need more strong leaders who, like Tim, are conservative because they’ve learned from life experiences, not poll driven messaging, what works for our great country.

Support Tim Scott today: http://votetimscott.com/

Cohen: Sarah Palin shows political savvy

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 26, 2014

https://i2.wp.com/www.rawstory.com/rs/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Sarah_Palin2-615x345.jpg

Insightful article by Adriana Cohen at the Boston Herald:

Cohen: Kind words for Hillary Clinton show Sarah Palin’s smarts

Photo by:  AP

WOMAN’S INTUITION: Remarks by Sarah Palin, above, about ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, have launched speculation about her motives.

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Hillary Clinton is probably the last person Sarah Palin wants to see in the Oval Office.

Which makes Palin’s near-endorsement of Clinton a bit of a head-scratcher. But Palin, despite the smears back in 2008, is a lot smarter than the left-leaning press has ever been willing to admit.

“I would like to see women run for the higher office. I think America certainly is ready for more female candidates at that upper echelon,” Palin told Mario Lopez on “Extra” when he asked about a Clinton run. And the stunned speculation about why Palin would say anything nice about Clinton began.

The fact is, Clinton is a dream candidate for the Republican Party in 2016.

Never mind all those polls that say Clinton walks away with it.

The Clintons have enough skeletons in their political closet to petrify a haunted house — and Bill, the former impeached president, will be a part of this race, too, as the nation’s prospective first First Husband.

The Democratic-friendly media has already been forced to notice the way she attacked the women her unfaithful husband targeted, though her party is supposed to be all about protecting the sisterhood.

Eventually, the media will have to address why it does make a difference who killed our ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi.

There’s the question of whether — given her angry outburst before Congress — she has the temperament to be president.

By 2016, Iran — aided by Clinton and President Obama’s exercise of soft power — may well have nukes.

Secretary of State John Kerry accidentally gave Bashir Assad his lifeline with that Russian-brokered chemical weapons deal, but Clinton missed the chance to support a real Syrian democracy movement, before al-Qaeda co-opted it. Then, there’s her support for Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.

Now, thanks to Crimea, Clinton’s infamous Russian “reset” rings hollow. That phone Clinton was ready to answer at 3 a.m.? It turns out it was … not in service.

Then, there’s Obama­care. Clinton was a major failed proponent of big government health care even before Obama succeeded in making a mess of it.

Palin, who couldn’t catch a break back in 2008, probably wouldn’t mind seeing Clinton catch a little of that political heat.

But maybe, Palin was doing the last thing her detractors would ever expect — voicing a laudable ideal, taking the high road, with no partisanship at all.

Gov. Palin: Mama Grizzlies Roaring Again!

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 25, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this evening:

Mama Grizzlies Roaring Again!

Our historic 2010 electoral victory was brought to you in no small part by commonsense conservative women across the country who rose up to organize support for others and to run for office themselves. In fact, we could call 2010 the year of the commonsense conservative woman – or, as I like to call them, the Mama Grizzlies!

Just like those powerful bears who rear up on their hind legs to fight any threat to their young cubs, American women will always rise up to protect the future for our children and grandchildren.

When we see reckless D.C. politicians bankrupting our country and mortgaging our children’s future, the women of America rise up. When we see an arrogant administration take away our family’s health care plans and force us to buy worse plans that we don’t want and can’t afford, we rise up. When we see a corrupt administration spying on our communications, lying to us about the death of our ambassador, and sicking the IRS on its political opponents, we Mama Grizzlies rise up!

The left will no doubt continue their war on conservative women, but the Mama Grizzlies will rise up in 2014 just as they did in 2010. Newsmax recently profiled many of these great women running for office in 2014: http://is.gd/0gMffe

Today, more women are small business owners than ever before. Women in households tend to make the family’s health care decisions, and women who manage a family budget have a keen sense of the need to economize and live within our means. The party of big wasteful corrupt and bullying government has little to offer women. So, look for the left to manufacture false narratives to distract us from the real dilemmas facing our nation.

In the coming days, I will be rolling out endorsements of some great Mama Grizzlies running for office this year. Get ready to shake things up!

– Sarah Palin

P.S.: Remember this video from SarahPAC in 2010? Look out Washington – more Mama Grizzlies headed your way: http://youtu.be/fsUVL6ciK-c

(Updated) Todd Palin will host premiere of Iditarod Unleashed series

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 24, 2014

The photos above and the comment below were posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page on Friday:

Sarah Palin added 2 new photos.

Check out this great interview with Todd about bringing the Iditarod to TV!

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Sports/2014/03/20/Interview-Todd-Palin-Excited-To-Bring-Iditarod-To-TV

Here is the article by Kevin Scholla that she linked to:

Interview: Todd Palin Excited to Bring Iditarod to TV

Sarah Palin isn’t the only one in the family who will be in front of the camera on the Sportsman Channel. While the former Alaska governor gets set to host Amazing America with Sarah Palin next month, it’s her husband Todd who will be showcasing the beautiful state of Alaska first.
The Iditarod has not had a national television network partner since 2009. Until now, that is. In a groundbreaking agreement with Sportsman Channel, the event organizers will continue to produce the annual sled dog spectacle and provide extensive, in-depth coverage, video and updates through an online platform.
 
As the Official Network of The Iditarod, Sportsman Channel will exclusively showcase the stories of The Iditarod. In a multi-week stunt entitled Iditarod Unleashed, Sportsman Channel will air 12 hours of programming and specials – including the national television premiere of shows from The Iditarod library – timed around the 2014 event. That’s where Todd Palin comes in.
 
Iditarod Unleashed programming begins March 25 at 7 p.m. ET/PT with a one-hour special hosted by Palin.
Palin is usually a behind-the-scenes guy. The supportive spouse. But he felt compelled to get the word out about the Iditarod. “I’ll do whatever I can to promote this great race,” Palin told Breitbart Sports. “I know some of the mushers and I know how much work it is to take part in it.”
While not a camera hog by any stretch of the imagination, Palin enjoyed filming the special programming. “I don’t like to watch myself on TV,” said Palin. “But this was a lot of fun.”
The Palin family is no stranger to the iconic Iditarod. “They used to have the restart in Wasilla before they moved it to Willow for the more consistent snow,” Palin said. “We watched for many years with the kids on snowmachines. It’s a big event for all Alaskans.”
While Palin is not a musher, he is a champion Iron Dog racer. His success in Alaska’s other big race gives him a special appreciation for those who take part in the Iditarod. “Both are the ultimate,” Palin said. “In certain stretches, you can actually go faster than a snowmachine when mushing with a dog team. They’re so powerful, sometimes you’re just hanging on.”
The Iditarod is more sophisticated than ever. Palin had a chance to visit sled dog champion Martin Buser’s facilities recently and he was blown away by the latest technology. “The use of carbon fiber has made these dog sleds better than ever,” Palin said. “The sport has come so far. You think back to the old days and wonder how they did it.”
There are personal connections to the Iditarod for Palin as well. Buser teamed up with Palin during the 2008 campaign to help stump for the McCain-Palin ticket. Rick Swenson “King of the Iditarod” ran pro class when Palin started Ion Dog racing in 1993. Meantime, DeeDee Jonrowe serves as an inspiration to all. She beat cancer and got back to mushing. Palin speaks glowingly of John Baker and all he has done for the sport.
“The people involved in this are just like the Iron Dog family,” Palin said. “A tight knit group that will help anyone, anyway they can.”
Todd and Sarah Palin attended the Iditarod Mushers Banquet in Anchorage this year to show their support for the big race and all those who participate in it.

[…]

Sportsman Channel will look back at Dallas Seavey’s record-breaking win, and showcase the incredible stories of this year’s historic race, along with stories from previous years.
Iditarod Unleashed will deliver dramatic stories of the dogs, mushers, volunteers, history, wildlife and rough terrain. The Iditarod is known as The Last Great Race on Earth. For Sportsman Channel viewers though the in-depth coverage of the race will be the first of it’s kind. “You don’t want to miss this,” Palin said. “It’s just incredible.”

Gov. Palin Congratulates Adams, French and ACLJ on First Amendment Win

Posted on Governor Palin’s page today:

It seems Hades froze over. Liberty loving Americans won a great victory for our First Amendment rights! University of North Carolina-Wilmington Professor Mike Adams won his case against the university for arbitrarily denying him his promotion to full professor because of his conservative writings. Many of you may have read Dr. Adams’ great articles at Townhall.com. As Dr. Adams’ attorney David French told me via email, “The university loved and honored Dr. Adams when he was liberal and atheist, and then punished him for his free speech after he became Christian and conservative. But Dr. Adams fearlessly fought back, and yesterday’s jury verdict sent a message: The Constitution protects conservatives too. We should heed that message and fight fearlessly for our rights, even against seemingly overwhelming odds.”

Congratulations to Dr. Adams, his tenacious and wise attorney David French, and the ACLJ for their many years of hard work on this case. This is a victory in defense of our Constitution. I thank God for blessing good attorneys with the common sense to articulate this case for freedom. Keep pushing back against the intolerant, stifling left!

Victory: Jury Rules North Carolina University Violated Conservative Professor’s Free Speech Rights

Dr Mike Adams UNCWilmington

By David French Filed in:
Free Speech 4:39 PM Mar. 20, 2014

In Greenville, North Carolina, a jury in federal court found that the University of North Carolina-Wilmington violated criminology professor Mike Adams’ free speech rights when it denied his application for promotion to full professor. The ACLJ represents Dr. Adams, along with Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Travis Barham.

Dr. Adams is a conservative Christian who also regularly contributes to Townhall.com, where he often critiques the widespread leftist abuses within colleges and universities.

His speech caused a furious response within his university, with the Chancellor even attempting to alter the standards for promotion to allow the faculty to consider professors’ protected speech in promotion decisions.

When Dr. Adams submitted his application for full professor, university officials rejected it through the use of a completely-fabricated promotion standard, passed along false and misleading information about his academic record, explicitly considered the content of his protected speech in promotion documents, and – incredibly – allowed a professor who’d filed a false criminal complaint against Dr. Adams to cast a vote against his application.

The verdict represents a significant victory for the First Amendment and for academic freedom, sending a message nationwide that colleges and universities will be held accountable if they attempt to impose ideological, religious, or political litmus tests on professors or students.

T. W. Shannon: I simply can’t describe full positive impact of Palin endorsement on campaign

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 20, 2014

https://i0.wp.com/cdn.ph.upi.com/sv/upi/UPI-2821395171918/2014/1/6dfdd27658847972cb33446970fdb9b9/Sarah-Palin-debuts-trailer-for-her-new-television-show_st_th.jpg

Excellent article by Tony Lee at Breitbart News:

Interview: T.W. Shannon: Palin Endorsement Brings More than Money Can Buy

19 Mar 2014, 5:38 PM PDT post a comment

Even before polls showed that conservative Oklahoma Senate candidate T.W. Shannon had slashed a 35-point deficit to single digits days after former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin heartily endorsed him, Shannon knew immediately that his upstart campaign had changed when Palin posted her support on Facebook and Twitter last week.

“All of a sudden people who hadn’t returned my calls started calling back,” Shannon told Breitbart News on Wednesday. “And the excitement from our grassroots supporters just exploded. They were already energized, but when Governor Palin came on board, it just kicked in to overdrive.”

Shannon said, “There are things we can measure, like the many thousands of dollars raised in response to her endorsement,” but there “are so many other things you can feel but not measure.”

“The excitement, the buzz, the chatter are all part of that,” he said. “The sense of momentum it brings. It truly is amazing, and I’m so thankful she agreed to endorse me when I asked. I literally can’t describe the full positive impact it has had on our campaign.”

But polls are beginning to paint a clearer picture of Shannon’s momentum.

Shannon trailed Rep. James Lankford (R-OK), who is cozy with the Republican establishment in D.C., by 35 points in February. A month later, a Public Opinion Strategy poll of Oklahoma GOP primary voters conducted four days after Palin’s endorsement and released on Tuesday found that Shannon is within single digits (28%-37%).

Former South Carolina Senator and Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint said that Palin’s endorsement has the most impact in GOP primaries, and that seems to be the case in the country’s most conservative state. As Breitbart News noted, the poll found that Palin, who has the highest favorability rating among GOP presidential primary voters, also does extremely well with Oklahoma Republicans with a 75% favorable/14% unfavorable image with Oklahoma GOP primary voters.

Shannon said that said Palin’s endorsement allows voters to trust the more conservative candidate in the race to not sell them out in Washington, D.C., so they are more likely to get on board, donate, and volunteer their time, and enthusiastically recruit their friends after a Palin endorsement.

“When Sarah Palin endorses someone, it removes that doubt for many voters, because her character and credibility and integrity are on the line,” Shannon said. “The fact that she is willing to transfer that credibility to me is something I don’t take lightly at all.”

Shannon said that when Palin supports someone, “it means more than money can buy, because it’s about credibility. Conservatives know who she is, and they know her values and beliefs. More importantly, they know she would not be supporting someone who doesn’t share those values.”

One cannot blame conservatives for being wary of candidates — even those like Shannon who was arguably the most conservative House speaker in the reddest state in the nation — because they have been disappointed by those who campaign to change Washington and then drink the proverbial Kool-aid once they get there and allow Washington to change them.

“That’s a real challenge I think for Republican primary voters. I mean, how many times have they heard a politician say all the right things, then go to D.C. and just fall in with the crowd?” Shannon told Breitbart News. “So there is always that element of doubt in a campaign, where the voters are trying to discern whether someone is truly a conservative, or if they are just saying all the right things.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who said he would not be in the Senate were it not for Palin’s endorsement, has been someone who has lived up to his campaign promises and stood unapologetically for conservative principles, and that is partly why the D.C. establishment does not like him while he leads among Tea Partiers and very conservative voters in nearly every 2016 presidential poll.

Though candidates are not guaranteed to fight like Cruz has, Palin’s endorsement gives a signal that her candidate is most likely to do so and not get cozy with the D.C. establishment, which is what conservatives have often accused Lankford, who quickly climbed House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) leadership ladder, of doing. As Palin noted, Shannon does not have the “backing of Beltway insiders.”

Instead, Palin said that Shannon has “the passion and experience We the People need in Washington. As the former Speaker he can stand proud on his record of fighting for conservative legislation that directly benefited the lives of Oklahomans by lowering taxes, cutting government waste, and breaking the cycle of poverty by encouraging entrepreneurial self-reliance as the proven path to prosperity.”

Breitbart News has reported, Shannon has impressed audiences in Oklahoma and across the nation when with his vision and record, but Palin’s endorsement helps shine a spotlight on candidates, especially when she urges Oklahomans and Americans to learn more about Shannon at www.twshannon.com.

Shannon’s name ID has gone from 59% to 74% and his favorables from 30% to 48% while his unfavorables are at 5%. Clay Bennett, the Oklahoma City Thunder owner, has also joined the Shannon campaign as a campaign chairman after Palin’s endorsement.

Palin often backs candidates who are not going to be a part of the permanent political class that is content with just managing America’s decline so long as their cronies get rewarded in D.C.’s “Boomtown,” and Shannon said he told Palin when asking for her endorsement that “we as a party are suffering from a lack of conservative vision. We have plenty of good managers, but few true leaders.”

“Our party needs true conservative leadership that can cast a vision for America’s future, and fight the battles necessary to advance conservative policy,” he said. “I would like to think she sees me as someone who can help fight and win those battles.”

Palin also mentioned that Shannon, in addition to his staunch conservatism, would also bring the morals that are needed in Washington.

“We can also rest assured that T.W. will bring to D.C. the integrity and moral compass he acquired growing up attending Bethlehem Baptist Church and teaching Sunday School,” Palin said. 

The late great UCLA coach John Wooden always said that failing to prepare is preparing to fail, and Palin’s endorsement often is amplified when campaigns have also had a strong organization in place. That seems to be the case with Shannon’s.

“We had been doing a lot of things here in Oklahoma that a campaign should be doing, like assembling a great team, organizing grassroots supporters, raising money, and advertising,” Shannon said. “All of those things turned out to be very helpful in magnifying Governor Palin’s endorsement, because the voters knew me before they knew Sarah Palin endorsed me.”

As Breitbart News reported, Palin proved how valuable her endorsement is in Nebraska during the 2012 election cycle:

The Republican establishment spent millions backing Jon Bruning, while Washington’s conservative establishment, including Freedom Works, spent millions backing Don Stenberg. But after Palin wrote a 135-word Facebook post to endorse Deb Fischer, the then-unknown candidate suddenly had “momentum, buzz, and name identification” and rocketed to the top of the polls en route to wins in the primary and general election.

Oklahoma is a more conservative state than Nebraska, and Shannon is hoping Palin can have a similar impact. He said he feels “wonderful about where we are right now” in the campaign but emphasized that he doesn’t need polls to tell him that “the people of Oklahoma are craving a true conservative leader with the convictions to say no to more debt, no to out-of-control spending, and no to the D.C. establishment.”

That’s something that Shannon knows in his heart, and that is why he has rocketed up the political scene despite having been an underdog many a time.

“T.W. is the underdog in his race, but that’s not a position he’s unfamiliar with,” Palin wrote.

Glen Bolger, of Public Opinion Strategies, wrote that “after starting the campaign as the equivalent of an NCAA Cinderella-wannabe, T.W. Shannon has become the momentum it takes to beat the number one seed, represented by James Lankford.” Palin may be able to boost Shannon even more if she were to campaign with him on the ground in Oklahoma. When she went to campaign in Texas for Cruz, Cruz’s consultant said that Palin was responsible for a 17-point swing in favor of Cruz.

“I’ve certainly never seen an overnight 17-point swing from earned media based on the appearance of a former elected official, a celebrity, or anyone in my experience,” the Cruz strategist said then.

Rep. Gohmert Sets Record Straight on Palin Russia Comments

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 20, 2014

I am always amazed that some six years post our country’s 2008 presidential election there are people who still cannot differentiate between a quote from Gov. Sarah Palin and a scripted skit that was performed by Tina Fey.   I’m not exactly sure what prompted Rep. Louis Gohmert to put himself out there for Gov. Palin but God bless him for doing so.

From Gohmert’s Youtube page:

In light of the breaking news in Ukraine, Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) took time on the House floor to set the record straight on the comments made by Sarah Palin on Russia. He read from her exact statements in 2008 and also from the exaggerated Saturday Night LIVE script.
