Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page today:
Happy Fourth of July! This day epitomizes what is unique and beautiful about the greatest nation on earth, our own America. Countries are normally based on geography or ethnicity, but ours is based on ideas that bind us together and were declared in writing on this day in 1776. On that day we were united. It is time for that unity again, so that we may stand again.
To explain to the next generation what those essential, exceptional ideas are, ask a child to look closely at a handful of loose change and read what’s written on our coins: E Pluribus Unum. In God We Trust. Liberty. These are the notions our nation was built on, and they are still true and necessary today. Divided from these precepts our nation will fall.
This Fourth of July, we celebrate our Founders making their desire for liberty plain by declaring their independence from Britain’s King and his burdensome government. May that same unifying desire and courage to fight for God-given sweet freedom be our driving force today.
God bless you all and God bless our United States of America!
– Sarah Palin
Governor Palin also posted this on her Facebook page yesterday:
Just a quick pre-Independence Day post, remembering last 4th of July family reunion in Coeur d’Alene; so thankful for a big beautiful extended family all in love with America! A continued sincere “thank you” to all the nieces, nephews, aunt & uncles, sons & daughters serving in uniform. And to our respected veterans – you are the civilian side of the family’s heroes!
And have to add one more… just to keep some people thinking.
Have a wonderful & safe 4th of July eve!

Gov. Palin: Attack on “Appeal to Heaven” flag is symptomatic of precarious position of our religious liberty

My latest op-ed:
Here is the op-ed she posted at Breitbart.com:
EXCLUSIVE – Sarah Palin: An Appeal to Heaven
And the “Flag Attack” rages on! In Arkansas there is a flag battle, but not the one you’ve been reading about.
The Bradley County Courthouse has flown an historic flag just below our stars and stripes; it features a simple evergreen tree and the phrase “Appeal to Heaven.” The ATH flag has a rich history, being first commissioned by George Washington to fly over Navy schooners during the Revolutionary War. Washington knew the colonies needed God’s intervention as they battled for freedom – they had no recourse but to call on God. The appeal to heaven ultimately granted America freedom. This is our foundation! And the few who disdain this foundation want the innocent but illustrious flag removed.
Special friends, Pastor Dutch and Ceci Sheets, presented me with an Appeal to Heaven flag of my own. It has stirred my heart and will stir millions more once the significance of this flag attack is understood.
The angry opposition to the evergreen-emblazoned bolt of cloth spews from those refusing to acknowledge the truth – that the patriots of old knew America’s hope for freedom was rooted in God. And unlike any other, the idea of “America” would be exceptional in that we would dedicate to God this land overflowing with the blessings of liberty.
In Bradley County, the ATH flag has flown over the courthouse, until the Freedom From Religion Foundation – a group that spends its funds suing municipalities who don’t see as they do – demanded Judge Keith Neely take down the flag or be sued. The judge found himself in a tough spot, and without the budget to fight out-of-town lawyers, he was advised by the county attorney to remove the historic flag. Well, The Freedom From Religion Foundation rattled the wrong cage. This is an attack on freedom, on honoring accurate history, and is more of the fundamental transformation of America that will render us not only unexceptional, but unrecognizable. But not if we intercede.
The solution? Get behind Judge Neely and the good folks in Bradley County who want to Appeal to Heaven for our nation. Religious freedom is what this republic was founded on – why kowtow to the few who threaten that right? I won’t deny our need for God’s grace and miracles to fundamentally restore America. Please join. Write your own “Appeal to Heaven” in the comments below. Press in! And stand strong with those already standing for freedom.
This attack on the ATH flag might seem irrelevant in light of all the important things happening right now, but it’s symbolic and symptomatic of the precarious position we’re in when it comes to religious liberty, our entire Bill of Rights, and our need to openly acknowledge the ultimate source of our country’s blessings. May we never doubt that a Providential Hand will always guide us to a better future as long as we are humble enough to seek that help.

Intriguing use of “her or his”, referring to protector of the Constitution.
Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page yesterday:
Is it too much to ask “Constitutional Scholars” to be faithful to the Constitution?
The most intrusive big government takeover in history – the Obamacare debacle – is now step-by-step tragically enabled by a handful sitting on the Supreme Court. They, who don’t understand our Constitution, are deceiving those not paying attention by acting as if the federal government is more powerful than our individual states, and worse, is greater than individual free and capable Americans. THIS is why a sincere protector of the Constitution must win in 2016. Her or his appointments to the bench WILL make or break America. The purpose of the United States Constitution is to impose restrictions on government, to not feed the beast until its expansion suffocates a free people. As noted below, the Obamacare ruling just spoon-fed our obese Oval Office that is filled with those ignoring the will of the people along with our founding documents. The solution? Demand answers from candidates. Ask them: Is it too much to expect judicial appointments and the politicians doing the appointing who swear to God they’ll uphold the Constitution to be loyal to the oath?

Sarah Palin Ends Run as Fox News Political Contributor
Wednesday, 24 Jun 2015 04:08 PM
Fox News has ended its relationship with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as a political contributor.
A Fox News Channel representative on Wednesday confirmed a report on Politico.com that said the cable network had not renewed its contract with the 2008 U.S. Republican vice presidential candidate. The relationship ended June 1, Politico said.
Palin, whose conservative stands have made her a favorite of the Tea Party movement, is expected to make occasional guest appearances on Fox News Channel or its sister outlet, Fox Business Network, Politico reported.
Palin, 51, had been a regular contributor and political commentator on Fox News for the past five years, often appearing through a camera installed in her Alaska home.
She currently is the host of “Amazing America,” a show on the Sportsman Channel focusing on veterans and outdoors life, and heads SarahPAC, her political action committee, which donates to conservative candidates.
Palin was governor of Alaska in 2008 when John McCain chose her to be his running mate and the first woman on a Republican presidential ticket.

Why can’t politics be put aside in the wake of South Carolina’s mourning? Politicians – please try. It would be in honor of them and the leadership provided by those most tragically affected. Let us follow the wisdom of the people of Charleston who lost their loved ones. The kind and beautiful family members who spoke at the court hearing on Friday know that this is a deeply personal human tragedy. Their words of grace reminded us that the only remedy for evil is the Lord who casts out the darkness in our hearts and offers us mercy. Charleston has been called “The Holy City” because of its skyline of church spires. Now all of America knows the truth of that title. Please respect their time of immeasurable grief, and let us honor this special city.

In addition to a call for more gun control, Obama’s latest political football using the Charleston tragedy is his attack on the St. Andrews Cross flag flying at the Capitol Building in Columbia, South Carolina.
These articles may give some insight into why South Carolinians still honor those who suffered and died not only for states’ rights but also during Sherman’s revenge on the state.

Gov. Palin: Obamatrade is fast-tracked deal that screams, “Don’t pass it ’til we know what’s in it!”
Posted by Dr. Fay on June 12, 2015
Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page last night:
The secretive, hugely impacting Obamatrade deal is another behind-closed-doors fast-tracked D.C. deal that screams “don’t pass it ’til we know what’s in it!” Yet politicians are going along to get along, supporting Obama’s pet project while ignoring the public’s right to know what’s in this monumental international trade deal. This, despite the President’s track record proving he hasn’t got it in him to put American workers first.
If Congress hands this secretive deal to Obama on a silver platter, admitting to not even reading it first, then shame on us for letting another one slide. This is fast-tracked, friends. Like Obamacare, when we sounded warning bells but too many were too busy to pressure their employees (your elected politicians) to do the right thing and learn it first. Since when is Congress able to halt any bullying administration’s fast-track deals? They never have before. Didn’t we learn last time?

Most importantly about this is that the vote passed with less than a majority of the full House of Representatives. Boehner was only able to–on a purely procedural…breitbart.com

Blood In The Water: 34 Courageous Conservatives Wound Obamatrade On Way To Final House Vote
11 Jun 2015Washington, DC
A whopping 34 courageous conservative Republicans shocked the political world on Thursday by severely wounding—and nearly killing—Obamatrade on a purely procedural vote.
Most importantly about this is that the vote passed with less than a majority of the full House of Representatives. Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) 40% was only able to — on a purely procedural vote — obtain 217, rather than the 218 votes for a majority, votes for the rule. It passed the House 217-212.
The vote, which nearly failed and would have ended Obamatrade right there, was a necessary procedural hurdle—a rule—that was must-pass for Obamatrade to make its way to the House floor for final consideration on Friday. What’s more, the nearly successful effort to kill Obamatrade—which has been lobbied heavily for by House GOP leadership, particularly the program’s chief architect Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 60% —means that there’s blood in the water around Obamatrade everywhere in the eleventh hour.
“Americans should be proud that 34 Republicans put their country before their political party today,” Americans for Limited Government president Rick Manning tells Breitbart News. “Their vote to stop Obamatrade dead in its tracks is one that sets the stage for tomorrow’s defeat of enabling him to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership and other treaties. The nation owes these 34 heroes a debt of gratitude.”
Glyn Wright, the executive director of Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, tells Breitbart News:
We are grateful to the 34 Republicans bold enough to vote NO on the rule. It was a tough vote for many, but a bold statement about the disgraceful policy and process. We hope that more members will show this kind of courage tomorrow. I am told by many Members of Congress that the calls from constituents against the bill are running 20:1. We will see tomorrow who is listening to their constituents and who is beholden to big business and leadership.
If those eight Democrats had voted against the rule–as they normally do, as these votes usually fall along party lines–the vote would have failed 220-209 and Obamatrade would have been dead.
It’s almost unheard of for Republicans to vote against a Republican rule, especially in numbers this high. So this was a serious rebuke to GOP leadership.
What’s more, one of the members who voted against the rule, Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) 91%, has been cited by GOP leadership in its efforts to push Obamatrade, so his decision to turn is significant. It also means Salmon is seriously listening back home in Arizona, as he’s considering running against Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 45% in a primary–but now, with fellow potential McCain challenger state Sen. Kelli Ward aggressively publicly against Obamatrade, he’s moving away from his support for it. It remains to be seen how he’ll vote on final Obamatrade passage on Friday, but if he does end up flipping back to vote for it, it’s hard to see him successfully edging out Ward in the bid to take down McCain for the Senate seat.
With the exception of Salmon, of course, it can be expected that each of the other 34 Republicans who voted against this rule will vote against final passage of TPA on Friday, unless something significant changes. That means there are several more Republicans who will likely vote against TPA on Friday than voted against this rule.
Given that eight Democrats voted for this—sources on the left say there may be only 17 Democrats willing and able to go for it, and it’s unclear if Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 7% will be able to deliver any more than that—there’s a chance Obamatrade may not make it on the House floor on Friday, and it’s certainly been bloodied up enough to possibly fail.
It still remains to be seen what happens next, but one House Republican aide from an office that’s publicly undecided, voted for the rule but is unlikely to support Obamatrade on final passage told Breitbart News that if the outside pressure from grassroots and conservative media continues until the final vote, it’s likely Obamatrade will die on the floor on Friday.
“My sense is the same [that there’s blood in the water everywhere around this deal],” the aide said. “They won’t stop till they have the votes. In reality this is Barack Obama’s fault. He’s never been good at politicking or leadership for that matter so the root of why this will fail is all on him – and the last 6 years of his presidency.”
In fact, that aide has noted, there are plenty of House Republicans who plan to vote no on Obamatrade when it hits the House floor on Friday—even though they’re not public about it at this time. The pressure has been high as leadership lobbies hard for this, but if it doesn’t pass on Friday it’s hard to see GOP leadership succeed in reviving it after it dies if that’s what happens.
Gov. Palin: Hypocritical media should go after law enforcement official who released confidential Duggar report
Posted by Dr. Fay on June 9, 2015
Video retrieved from iizthatiiz.
Governor Palin talked with Sean Hannity last night about the liberal hypocrisy and double standard in attacking the Duggar family over their son’s youthful transgressions while lauding Lena Dunham for similar ones. She said the media should instead be going after the law enforcement official who released the confidential report that revictimized the young women in the Duggar case. She said the release of that confidential information was political because the Duggars are a conservative family.
When asked her opinion about the slate of candidates for the 2016 Presidential election, she said that the deep bench of Republican candidates was good for competition. She expressed her opinion that Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic Party Nominee and said that Democrats are sheeple and like to follow one leader.
Notably, Hannity did not ask her whether she planned to run or not, which is probably a first for him when discussing the upcoming election with her.

Thank a WWII vet and listen to their stories, tell your kids the story of D-Day, watch “The Longest Day” or “Band of Brothers,” or simply say a prayer in gratitude for the tens of thousands who made the ultimate sacrifice that day in order to liberate an entire continent from evil.

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this evening:
These “Clinton Cash” scandals keep piling up; they illustrate the insiders’ skewed priorities and disrespect for our great nation. America, these are ultimately YOUR tax dollars at work!
So, let me get this straight: we borrow money from foreign countries to give to foreign countries, while America falls apart and we go broke. Meanwhile, politicians continually waste your hard earned money and get rich off their access to power. They’re vultures, but remain oh-so-esteemed. Wake up, America. This is a dangerous game they play while ignoring the nation’s real needs for security. Take for example the $165 billion in American arms sales to authoritarian regimes that turned around and donated a ton of cash to the Clintons. (And these weapons often end up in the enemy’s hands because our weak administration doesn’t require accountability. Fast and Furious, anyone?) Or consider the $145 million the Clintons bagged from investors as Hillary’s State Department committed one-fifth of our nation’s entire uranium production to them! Our own uranium sold to characters who’d potentially enrich it… leading to nukes… leading to the good guys’ destruction.
C’mon, voters. How does any of this serve our country? It’s as pointless as nation building in unfriendly foreign lands. It’s as dangerous as lying about terrorist armies who seek to destroy us as being mere bench warmers, instead of just letting our military do its job and blow the bad guys straight to hell.
We only have ourselves to blame if they – the politicians who work for us – are rewarded with time to do more damage. Only the insane would bless their repeated destructive incompetence and greed.
Thank you, Peter Schweitzer and team, for showing us how the fat cats roll.

21 New ‘Clinton Cash’ Revelations That Have Imperiled Hillary Clinton’s Campaign
Prior to the release of the New York Times bestselling investigative exposé Clinton Cash by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer, Hillary Clinton and her supporters claimed she was among the most vetted political figures in America—a candidate about whom everything was known.
Yet as media outlets across the ideological spectrum have confirmed and verified the book’s explosive revelations about Clinton’s tenure as Sec. of State and the influx of hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign sources into the Clinton Foundation, the nation has learned much it did not know. Subsequent reporting by national news outlets has expanded on the book’s findings using its investigative methodology.
Indeed, the dizzying flurry of resulting Hillary Clinton Foundation scandals has been difficult to keep up with. As CNN’s John King put it on Sunday, “You can’t go 20 minutes in this town, it seems, without some sort of a story about Clinton Foundation that gives you a little bit of the creeps.”
Early on, as Clinton Cash bombshells began appearing in the New York Times, Washington Post, New Yorker, Bloomberg, and elsewhere, Hillary Clinton’s campaign sought to calm nervous campaign donors by announcing the creation of a special “rapid response” War Room aimed at combating a book, an unprecedented move in the annals of modern presidential campaigning. The Clinton campaign team built a website called “The Briefing,” issued memos, and tasked an eight-person team to create videos featuring embattled Clinton spokesperson Brian Fallon as he awkwardly and unsuccessfully attempted to smear Peter Schweizer. Team Clinton’s message: all of Clinton Cash’s revelations are incorrect or merely “coincidences.”
Yet as the nation’s largest news organizations began to confirm finding after finding, the Clinton campaign did the only thing it could: it gave up in its attempts to refute the swelling avalanche of now well-established facts. Indeed, the Clinton campaign’s last video response on its “The Briefing” YouTube page is dated May 5th—Clinton Cash’s official launch date.
To date, Hillary Clinton has yet to substantively answer a single question from the mountain of Clinton Cash questions that continue to pile up with each passing day.
The result: according to Tuesday’s CNN poll, the “Clinton Cash Effect” has rendered Hillary Clinton historic new lows in her favorability with American voters.
Below we chronicle just 21 of the myriad Clinton Cash-related revelations that have emerged since the book’s publication—all of which have been confirmed and verified as accurate by national media organizations.
Hillary Clinton has refused to substantively answer a single question related to the above 21 revelations, or the scores of others not reflected above.
In answer to a question about Clinton Cash, Bill Clinton said the book “won’t fly.” The book has remained on the New York Times bestseller list three weeks in a row after debuting at number two.
Now, with Hillary Clinton’s poll ratings at all-time lows, Americans and the nation’s journalists eagerly await the chance to hear Hillary Clinton’s answers to the growing mountain of Clinton Cash-related revelations, investigative findings that have consumed and imperiled her candidacy.
