Sarah Palin and Kay Orr campaign for Pete Ricketts in Nebraska

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 6, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page on Friday:

 


PETE RICKETTS FOR GOVERNOR OF NEBRASKA! NEVER FEAR SUCCESS!

I was honored to make a special trip to the Cornhusker State today to join fellow former governor Kay Orr in endorsing Pete Ricketts for governor of Nebraska. While Pete’s opponents in this race have made a career for themselves as politicians, bureaucrats, or lobbyists, Pete spent his career in the private sector helping grow his family’s successful business from the bottom up. I believe in teaching kids to never fear success and in fact to look to those who’ve ethically earned their success and emulate their work ethic! This is how we grow business, recover industry, hire Americans, and save our economy, and Pete proves this. The alternative is woeful dependency on an inevitable sinking ship I call “Liberal Lunacy.” Pete and his Nebraska family are an inspiring American success story, and now Pete is dedicated to making sure America’s promise is there for future generations to succeed and prosper.

Like so many other commonsense conservatives, in the last eight years Pete has focused his energy and resources into furthering the conservative cause in Nebraska because he knows that in critical times like this we need fearless patriots willing to lead. At a time when too many candidates are opportunistic and unprincipled, Pete Ricketts stands apart because he is running for the right reasons – to lead his state with a servant’s heart and a firm reliance on the time-tested truths that have made this country great.

One of Pete’s opponents is now recycling old discredited attacks hatched up by the Democrats. Don’t be fooled by the mudslinging coming from a candidate eager to distract voters away from his own dodgy record. Pete’s position is clear: he opposes amnesty and taxpayer funded benefits for illegal immigrants in any form and always has.

Pete has the business acumen, the moral integrity, and the conservative common sense to lead Nebraska into a prosperous future. He will join the other great conservative governors we’ve endorsed who are showing Washington, D.C. how to balance a budget, reform entitlements, save for the future, develop our resources, and grow jobs.

Pete Ricketts is the clear principled commonsense conservative choice in this race, and I hope you’ll join me in lending him your support!

On Saturday, she followed up with this post:

It was great to be in Grand Island, Nebraska, yesterday to support the bold conservative running for governor, Pete Ricketts!

It was a special honor to stand next to the legendary Kay Orr, the first Republican woman ever elected governor and a staunch ally of Ronald Reagan, who at his last state dinner sat Margaret Thatcher on his right and Kay Orr on his left. Thank you, Kay, for being a trailblazing governor and for supporting great Nebraska conservatives like Deb Fischer, Ben Sasse, and Pete Ricketts.

I’d also like to send a special thanks to Mary Hilton and her seven beautiful children who came all the way from Lincoln to attend yesterday’s event. You are the one who is bold, Mary! Your family is beautiful and was so patient to make the long trip! If they’d have let me, I would have spent all day getting to know you and your great family! Thank you for coming and for supporting Pete!

Here’s an article about yesterday’s event:

Here is an excerpt from the article Governor Palin linked to:

Lincoln family travels to see Sarah Palin

Created: Fri, 04 Apr 2014 08:39:00 CST

 

Updated: Fri, 04 Apr 2014 10:47:18 CST

Sarah Palin carries a lot of weight in politics. When she speaks, people listen. We talked with one woman who has been waiting for this moment for years.

“The American dream is being lived out here in Nebraska,” former Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin said at the Heartland Event Center in Grand Island this morning.

Sarah Palin is the face for Republicans. And, the voice for women across the country.

On this day in a room filled with politicians and farmers, one mother from Lincoln was listening closely.

“I love her,” said Mary Hilton of Lincoln. “I love the stand she takes. I love her boldness.”

Mary Hilton wouldn’t miss the chance to see her role model up close as Palin endorsed Nebraska gubernatorial candidate, Pete Ricketts.

She loaded her seven kids in the car and headed down I-80 to give her children the experience of a lifetime.

“She has this incredible fan base of people who is willing to stand behind her beliefs,” Hilton said.

Beliefs that Nebraskans and Alaskans see eye-to-eye on.

“We are a home-steading state,” Hilton added. “We have the same principles. We have the same kind of people. We choose to live in Nebraska.”

Even before Palin’s arrival, Hilton was throwing her support behind Pete Ricketts for Governor. Now, the former Vice Presidential Candidate’s endorsement solidified her vote.

Kevin Scholla: ‘Amazing America with Sarah Palin’ is off to a roaring start

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 6, 2014

https://i1.wp.com/palin4america.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/PalinSportman2-e1394295335186.jpg

Excellent review of the premiere of Governor Palins new ‘Amazing America’ series by Kevin Scholla at Breitbart.com:

Review: New Sarah Palin TV Show Off to Amazing Start

A double shot of Americana from the Sportsman Channel Thursday night left viewers smiling from coast to coast. Amazing America with Sarah Palin made its long anticipated debut and for an extra treat a second episode ran immediately after the premiere. The back-to-back shows featuring the former Alaska governor were both enjoyable from start to finish.
———————–
The first two installments of Amazing America with Sarah Palin gave us a good idea of what we can expect for the season. Each thirty-minute program was packed with unique, interesting stories focusing on the outdoors and the Americans who love to work and play there.
——————————-
In the first episode, Palin hosted from a studio wearing a pink “Girls With Guns” T-shirt. She introduced the segments and then kicked it over to her field hosts. Palin would interject with commentary and factoids as each story unfolded.
——————————
The first stop was Tennessee. That’s where field host Jerry Carroll paid a visit to professional wrestler “Cowboy” James Storm. The grappler gave Carroll quite a show. First he broke the ice by giving Carroll some wrestling duds to wear. Storm then invited Carroll into the ring and picked him up for a body slam. Luckily, for the fifty-something Carroll, Strong did not follow through, instead electing to lay Carroll down gently on his feet. When the real grappling started Carroll tagged out and let his “body double” take the beating.
—————————
Storm then brought Carroll along for an inside look at his cowboy lifestyle. They fired guns and rode horses. Storm showed off his Henry rifle. The guys finished up at a local watering hole for some beer. Both Storm and Carroll smiled ear to ear throughout their time together. At the end of the segment Palin returned and lauded Storm for the way he lives his life. “How great is it that so many years after they’ve tamed this land that we love, there are still modern day cowboys keeping the spirit alive in America,” Palin said.
———————–
The next amazing American featured was Julie Golob, the world class shooting champion. Field host Mark Christopher Lawrence met up with Golob at her home in Montana. The bubbly marksman proceeding to put on a clinic.
——————-
In sub-freezing temperatures, Golob competed with Lawrence in various events. Steel challenge, short course of fire, and IDPA were all on the docket. Lawrence did well and had a lot of laughs, but the world class champion Golob stole the show. Palin called Golob a “modern day Annie Oakley.”
————————–
After braving the cold, Golob invited Lawrence into her home. There, the Army veteran, wife, and mother of two showed off some of her most prized possessions…her guns. Lawrence’s eyes popped as he looked at what he described as a “small arsenal.” Golob shared some fun stories including the time she and her husband shot a deer while out on a date, all while she was pregnant. You can see why Palin wanted Golob on the show.
—————————————
The visit ended with a little venison chili prepared by Golob. Lawrence clearly enjoyed every moment.
———————————–
“Women are taking up arms and defending this country in droves,” said Palin. “Today more than ever women are becoming some of the most enthusiastic and skilled shooters.” Julie Golob is the perfect example.
———————————–

The premiere of Amazing America with Sarah Palin left the viewer excited for more. Sportsman Channel accommodated them with a second episode immediately after the debut.  

———————–

In the second show, Palin left the studio and took to the outdoors herself. Fittingly, she was in her home state of Alaska. The entire show was dedicated to the Iditarod and one of its legendary mushers.

————————–
DeeDee Jonrowe is a hero to many in Alaska and around the nation. Not only is she one of the most accomplished mushers of all-time, but Jonrowe overcame cancer to get back on the sled. “DeeDee’s story is one every sportsman should know,” Palin said. She’s right. The perseverance and passion of this woman could serve as an inspiration to any athlete. Jonrowe, who just took part in her thirty second Iditatrod, was back in action just three weeks after chemotherapy. Her secret? “I feel God on my side,” Jonrowe told Palin.
——————————
Palin wanted an up close and personal story about the amazing dogs and mushers involved in the Iditarod. She got it…and then some.
———————
First, Palin visited Jonrowe’s kennel, her office if you will, which is home to 62 dogs. Jonrowe introduced many of them to Palin including two playful pooches named Track and Trig. The Mama Grizzly gave the dogs some snacks and then things really got interesting.
—————————-
Jonrowe suited up some of her dogs with pink, paw-protecting booties and took Palin out on the sled with a full mush team. “Unless you’re the lead dog, the view never changes”, Palin joked.
——————————–
The ride got off to a rough start as Palin completely wiped out and fell off the sled. In typical Palin fashion she jumped right back on with a smile. “I’m good, let’s go,” said Palin.
————————————-
As the two Alaskan women trekked down the historic trail, Palin let it all soak in. “What a  privilege to get to experience nature in this way,” she said. “This is what freedom means.”
——————————–
[…]
———————————

Amazing America with Sarah Palin is off to a roaring start. If the rest of the season is as well put together as these first two shows, Sportsman Channel has a real hit anchoring its Thursday lineup.
