Gov. Palin: Chag kasher V’Sameach. Happy Passover

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 14, 2014

We at SPIB want to wish all our Jewish friends and readers Happy Passover also.  Chag Sameach.

Posted on Governor Palin’s website tonight:

Tonight Jewish families all over the world celebrate Passover, the commemoration of their freedom from bondage and their Exodus to the Promised Land. We join with them in spirit in celebrating mankind’s universal aspiration for freedom, and our prayers are especially with our Jewish friends in Israel. May they continue to flourish as a democracy in a region of the world so troubled by despotic regimes. Chag kasher V’Sameach. Happy Passover. And next year in Jerusalem!

Sarah Palin talks about her new show and politics during Manhattan photo shoot

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 10, 2014
Alexandra Wolfe at the Wall Street Journal describes a photo shoot and interview in Manhattan for Governor Palin’s new outdoors series, ‘Amazing America.’

Sarah Palin is walking through a suite in the Peninsula New York Hotel in midtown Manhattan trying to find the great outdoors. The former GOP vice presidential candidate is being photographed before the launch of her new reality series, “Amazing America,” which features human-interest tales about outdoor adventures, ranging from a blacksmith championship to a car race among pastors. But the suite doesn’t even have a landscape painting. She finally finds a window to pose in front of, but it’s facing a brick wall, not the wilderness.

Crammed into two tiny rooms with eight other people—including her husband and two handlers—Ms. Palin doesn’t want to be “burned” by unflattering photographs, which has happened in the past, she says. Wearing a V-neck shirt, black skinny jeans and a glittering “Girls with Guns” belt and buckle, she also doesn’t want to wear the camouflage jacket that the photographer has brought for her, nor will she succumb to his French charm. She certainly doesn’t want to perch on any furniture.

As the photographer clicks away, Jason Recher, a former George W. Bush aide and her longtime aide, tries to move things along. “Next frame, next frame, next frame,” he says, glancing over the photographer’s shoulder. Ms. Palin has a busy schedule this day. She has had back-to-back meetings and appearances, and over the course of the hourlong interview and photo shoot, she drinks several glasses of Diet Coke.

Her handlers say that she wants this interview to focus on her new show on the Sportsman Channel, not on politics. But she hasn’t shied away from the political debate, as shown by her daily Facebook and Twitter posts (often in all-caps) about foreign and domestic policy. She has given public support to a few Republican candidates and will soon head to a fundraiser for Lizbeth Benacquisto, a state senator in Florida who is running for Congress.

Ms. Palin deflects questions about whether she herself will run for office in 2016. “My plans are more immediate than that,” she says, “and that is helping get good people elected in 2014 to undo much of the blundered Barack Obama agenda that has not allowed the economic recovery in this country that Americans deserve.” By trying to put new people in positions of power, such as Greg Abbott, a Republican gubernatorial candidate in Texas, and Joni Ernst, a Republican Senate candidate in Iowa, she says that she hopes to help “get America on the right track in getting people hired and industry back here cruising and booming—that’s what we need in America!”

Much of Ms. Palin’s campaigning has been on social media. She likes putting her views online, she says, because she thinks that she can get her message out more directly. “I’m not a big fan of the conventional—[what] I call ‘lamestream’—media because they too often filter my message,” she says. “I get to go right to the people and the millions of followers I have on my Facebook, and I get to talk to them and interact with them.” Ms. Palin has 1.05 million Twitter followers and more than 4 million Facebook-page likes.

As she starts to discuss how political correctness is part of the media’s filter, the publicist from the Sportsman Channel, who is sitting next to her, clears his throat. (When asked later if he was cuing her, he said that he wasn’t; he had a cold.) She changes gears quickly: “A show like this, which is unfiltered, is going to be very refreshing because, no! It’s not going to be politically correct,” she says. “Thank God! Because most people aren’t politically correct, and that’s relatable.”

Why didn’t she run in 2012? “Too busy,” she says quickly. “Young family, busy family, lots going on, and today there’s still a lot going on.” She prefers endorsing candidates, “finding underdogs who have a servant’s heart and have the ability and they have the willingness to serve America for the right reasons,” she says. The publicist clears his throat again, and she continues: “But the show isn’t political at all; it is about hardworking, patriotic, everyday American life that needs to be highlighted. We need more family-oriented, positive, uplifting shows to watch, and this is going to be one of them.”

The great outdoors have inspired many of Ms. Palin’s key phrases and political ideas. She came up with the term “Mama Grizzly” a few years ago after watching a group of bears catching salmon in Homer, Alaska. She soon realized, “The mamas are doing all the work!” While the male bears played and wrestled, she says, the females “are catching the fish and feeding the babies, and they’re protecting the babies and taking swats at any other bear that would come bug their cubs and perhaps be a threat to their cubs,” she explains. After observing the bears that day, she discovered, “It’s the mama grizzlies that are looking out for that next generation,” she says. “So politically, I’m finding mama grizzlies who will look out for America’s future.”

How would she convince women to vote Republican in 2016 if Hillary Clinton ended up being the Democratic nominee? “Hopefully gender isn’t going to be an issue in anyone’s judgment of who the best candidate will be to help lead America,” she replies. “I’m fortunate to have grown up in a very independent and hardworking family where gender was never an issue.”

Ms. Palin doesn’t hesitate to criticize members of her own political party. Earlier that week, she had called Rep. Paul Ryan‘s budget proposal a “joke.” She wrote on her Facebook page, “It STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending TODAY.” Today, she says, “We should make government as irrelevant in our lives as possible.”

Ms. Palin also resents government surveillance, as she makes clear in referring to Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked documents about the agency’s collection of data, including the phone call records of millions of Americans. “Snowden isn’t the problem!” she says. “The American government spying on its own people is the problem!” She finishes her thought by saying, “The smaller the government, the bigger the people, and this show talks about big, bold, beautiful America.”

One area where Ms. Palin doesn’t want to reduce government spending is the military. She says that with a strengthened military, she would have handled Russia’s annexation of Crimea differently from how President Obama did. “I’d put the fear of God in our enemies!” she almost shouts. “Like Ronald Reagan did! I wouldn’t be cutting the military. You strengthen the military!”

In her view, is Russia or China a bigger threat? “We don’t know enough about what China is capable of yet, so I’d have to say Russia,” she says. But she remains concerned about the Middle East. She calls the area a “tinderbox with dangerous cells going that are full of bad guys,” adding, “We need to have our defenses ready!”

Gov. Palin warns Eric Holder about ID bracelets for gun owners: “You don’t want to go there, buddy.”

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 9, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this afternoon:


Liked · 8 hrs

Attorney General Eric Holder thinks government should force gun owners to wear special “identifying” bracelets?

Hey Eric, these are my identifying bracelets:
One honors our military;
One honors independent Americans who have a healthy distrust of Washington’s permanent political class and who will fight against elitists hell-bent on fundamentally transforming the USA;
And one celebrates the year 1791 – that glorious year our Bill of Rights came to be, with the cross and bones symbol representing our Founders’ “Death to Tyranny” commitment, and on each side you’ll see symbols of my faith. Complete with Swarovski crystals, I might add.

Eric, you can replace my identifying bracelets with your government marker when you pry them off my cold, dead wrists.

And, Eric, “You don’t want to go there, buddy.”

Bristol Palin is now an esthetician

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 9, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page last night:

23 hrs

We’re so proud that Bristol has been graduated tonight from Penrose Academy in Arizona. She’s heading back to Alaska soon (because she misses the snow, mountains, and her truck!) to continue her work at Dr. Cusack’s dermatology practice. It‘s been a great four years with Doc; he’s been an understanding and very patient boss as Bristol has enjoyed many opportunities in addition to her good employment in Anchorage at Alaska Dermatology and Laser Center. We’re happy for her to have finished this challenging, rewarding academy; and now she’s ready to be licensed in “all things skin,” which is what she’s always wanted to do. I’m a huge proponent of trade/tech schools that teach real-world employable skills that reward work ethic and integrity. Smart, employable, debt free, vo-tech grads have good jobs available for them right out of school! Go for it, vo-tech grads! Get out there and work, and change the world for the better!– Sarah Palin

Here is the class photo of Bristol’s graduating class from the Penrose Academy Facebook page.  Bristol’s sister Willow also graduated from Penrose Academy but in cosmetology.

Congratulations to all of our graduating Esthetics students tonight! #penroseacademy #esthetics

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:



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’s a fun photo gallery of Kay Orr’s incredible life:

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

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

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.

Kunich and Henderson: Sarah Palin’s Remarkable Staying Power

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 5, 2014

The authors of this article don’t appear to be Sarah Palin fans, but they have made some noteworthy observations.

From the article byJackie Kucinich and Nia-Malika Henderson at the Washington Post:

Sarah Palin’s remarkable staying power

The Washington Post posted this graphic of  the success rate of Governor Palin’s 2010 endorsements:

Campaign 2010:  The Politics of Palin


Ron Devito has these stats on Palin’s 2012 endorsement success:

2012 Endorsements Success Rate: 57.14% of endorsed candidates in which an election has been held. In cases involving a runoff, we are counting the runoff as the election having been held for purposes of calculating the success rate of Gov. Palin’s endorsements. Six out of the eight wins were endorsed during the primary season and went on to win the general election. The success rate on this subset is 75%.
