If any good can come…

The recent shooting of several people in Tuscon, AZ including Congresswoman Giffords and a little 9 year old girl, should be a wake up call to all Americans about what really unites us.

We are Americans first, one Nation under God. We saw this in spades right after 9-11. American flags were everywhere. Churches were full. America learned the meaning of “one Nation, indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all.”

The immediate finger pointing that took place in the media and others is not constructive.
All should step back, humble themselves and pray for all of those hurt in this mess and for our Country.

Blaming the Second Amendment is perhaps more meaningless than the finger pointing. It shows a basic lack of respect to the victim, Congresswoman Giffords, who herself was a Second Amendment supporter.

The Tea Party, who are composed largely of God loving, prayerful, peace seeking folks who sacrifice time and talent to do what they believe will save this precious country, and all of her freedoms would obviously never condone such an action. This is common sense. For anyone to say otherwise is not only very sad, but divisive and unproductive.

The only one to blame here is the sickening accused murderer who “favorited” this video of burning the American flag. He deserves all the blame and punishment.

Instead of blaming one another, could we please unite as a Nation around the principle that this violence is never acceptable, regardless of party or political views? That will be the only victory in all of this, and is the best way to honor lives lost in this tragedy. Our flag is symbolic of victory through tragedy. Perhaps the busy bodies could put down their keyboards and mount a flagpole today, as a voice of unity against all kinds of assaults on our freedoms, and in one voice, as the United States of America.

Star Power: Palin Takes Hollywood … And the Culture

Posted by Dr. Gina Loudon on December 27, 2010

By Dr. Gina Loudon and featured on Big Hollywood

The liberal media relentlessly criticizes Sarah Palin for her ubiquitous media appearances from hard news punditry to pop culture appearances. The Fox News analyst is “going Hollywood” with her latest stint in reality TV, attendance at Bristol’s Dancing with the Stars events. Palin is everywhere. More than any other political figure in modern history, the ever-present Palin has shown a phenomenal ability to remain relevant. Her savvy has left her progressives hand-wringing, potential presidential opponents sniping, and everyone else in America abuzz over what she will and should do next.

Depending on your point of view, she is either a genius or opportunist. Should a politician go anywhere near reality TV? If you are a crusty, wing tip wearing beltway boy, the answer is obvious. If you are in Hollywood, you are jealously wondering which agent she engaged. If you are in flyover land, you are withholding jjudgment.

What is clear is that Palin has tapped a connection with “real America” in a Reaganesque manner that makes any politician jealous. She understands the culture, and she knows what it takes to keep ones name at the center of conversations. She engenders just the right amount of criticism to keep her fans rabidly defensive. Her detractors wind up looking like yipping, hysterical Chihuahuas with pink, spiky collars in pathetic attempts to appear menacing. Meanwhile, poli-star wannabe’s from Michael Moore to Meghan McCain are salivating as their pathetic attempts to pedal their way to relevance falls far short of what only comes naturally to Sarah Palin—Poli Super Stardom.

She has it. They want it. They can’t get it. It is that simple.

The “It” is the Hollywood and new media age super stardom that tees up political success. Reagan started the tactic. Schwarzenegger leveraged it before he dropped the baby (California) on its head. But only Sarah Palin has perfected it.

When liberals hate her, conservatives become more intrigued. When they call her names, conservatives jump in the ring to defend her. When they call for her murder, conservatives turn all guns on her protection, her promotion, and yes, her presidency.

This has Hollywood scratching their heads. Who is her agent? How could she do all of this without proper media training? Why no voice coach, they wonder. Surely she needs some polishing that only folks in the business can provide if ever she is to make something of herself.

Politicians are watching too, wondering as they comb their hair in the rear view mirror why they aren’t the fairest of them all. The reason? They might be dynamic, good looking, smart, savvy, but they represent none of the cultural change that Sarah Palin embodies for conservatives. They think that their smart wonkishness, or their strong soundbites will win the hearts of conservatives, but it won’t. Conservatives intuitively know that politics is merely one front in the war on our culture. Hollywood is another. Palin has shrewdly tapped both and in so doing has unprecedented ability to leverage the media to move the culture, or vice versa. Politicians might not like the fact that Sarah Palin is the only one who gets it, but it is an undeniable truth they cannot overcome.

Those who would oppose her should be very afraid.

Palin knows that culture is predictive of politics and Hollywood moves culture. Therefore, as the country revolted against Obama Progressives and shifted dramatically rightward, the one remaining liberal stronghold standing in the way of a pure conservative revolution is the puppet master of culture — Hollywood. Sarah brought scissors to the theatre and she is challenging the master. Snip, snip, snip and it is done. Palin just took a leading place on the stage, reaching both red and blue state America with her unpretentious authenticity on her way to reclaiming our culture. The culture will be restored and the socialist folly will be buried in the tombs of bad scripts where it belongs. John Wayne style Hollywood is resurging, and America is poised to once again be Reagan’s “Shining City on the Hill”—a beacon for the rest of the world.

So that is why the liberals are so concerned that Sarah is taking Hollywood. It is not President Palin they fear, but a God-fearing, family oriented, crackerjack smart, female “Puppet Master Palin” that has them trembling. If she and her conservative, apple pie eating, patriotic cohorts held the strings, libs could no longer rule the world stage from the rafters.

Somebody get Sarah some sunglasses!

Palin: The Triple Threat

Posted by Dr. Gina Loudon on November 28, 2010

I attended the Conservatives for Palin event over the weekend, and I gained some insight I think conservatives want to consider moving forward.  The group was not like any I have ever known.  There were all kinds of people there—Christians, Jews, Hindus, women, men, black, white, Asian, British, and even Nordic!  They were gay, straight, old, young, republican, democrat, libertarian, and independent, and they all had one thing in common…they believe the stringent adherence to the US Constitution is the answer to the problems we have today.

Even if they are quiet, there are those conservatives who struggle with a female president.  Dr. Dathan Paterno, noted psychologist and author says the reality is, that there WILL be a woman president in the near future—that it is in the American psyche.  What happens if conservatives choose NOT to nominate Sarah Palin?  Certainly the liberals will nominate a woman soon, and then they continue the whining about sexism that has worked for them for so long.

Liberals and establishment politicians of all parties seem to have a special venom for the former Governor of Alaska.  If she is really so “unelectable” then why all the fuss?  “Thou doth protest…”. If she is really so laughable, then why do the jokes about her keep falling flat? Could it be that they obsess about her for the psychological reason that they can’t stand the threat she poses to them? Could it be because they see her as the greatest threat in recent history to their personal goals, and the establishment media and messaging they have used to control politics in this country for a generation?  Could it be that the nomination of Sarah Palin for President is a revolution?

Her nomination presents a real conundrum for liberals and establishment parties of all stripes.  If the Republicans nominate Sarah Palin, how will the liberals continue to accuse the right of being sexist?  Where will the feminists go to find their beloved glass ceiling victim status?  If she has outspoken gay supporters who don’t disagree with her stance that this is a Judeo Christian republic with a founding document that matters more than someone’s sexual preference, then how will the militant gays continue to relegate Christians to radical, homophobic, hating extremists?  If a family woman, a mom, can (based on her Christian principle) in fact love someone that the liberals say she hates, then what do liberals do with that?  If the constitutional conservatives progress this nation to nominate the first female nominee for president, then how do liberals continue to abuse labels like “progressive” and “tolerant”?

Conservatives have their own issues.  First, from a GOP perspective, consultants use their experience with the apparatus to be hired by candidates to run their campaigns.  How will they do that if someone climbed to the top on a different tree?  Some conservatives may struggle with her rebuke of legalistic philosophy in lieu of one that favors real liberty, and Christ-like love, even for those who live or believe differently than you. Perhaps most difficult for some conservatives to admit–When a woman like Sarah Palin is President, how to we reconcile our own sideline behavior without tremendous guilt?   I wish I had a good answer to that last one.

The militant liberals don’t like her, but interestingly she has attracted a broad group of people who do like her.  Their loyalty has resulted in an organization that is so talented and proficient, it is difficult to comprehend, even to a seasoned campaign veteran. Her supporters are constitution loving, focused and very, very serious about supporting her (or whomever  she taps with her magic winning wand)!  Not everyone at the Conservatives for Palin were certain she would run, or that she should, but almost all that I talked to agreed that if she did run, the Country would be shocked at her savvy and self deprecating ability to do so.  They all agreed that she is far stronger, far more capable than any of her opponents even know.  She is certainly well vetted, beyond that of any other candidate.  Most people would agree that no other candidate has endured the ridicule and jabs that Sarah has overcome.

Her critics say she does all she does for money, but with two books and a television show, that argument doesn’t hold any more water than the fame argument, or the power hound.  She just won 71%+ of the elections she touched, and many were considered “unwinnable.”  She has become a culture icon of sorts.  She could take her lipstick, shoes, glasses, mama grizzly, and even barracuda labels, and she could probably start a fashion line and retire to an Alaskan island with a lovely view of Russia.

The liberals have always underestimated Governor Palin and she has continued to shock them as she seamlessly wins elections like a political Houdini of sorts.

All of the accusations about her motives tend to leave the listening public with one logical conclusion:  She must be in this because she believes in what she is doing, and genuinely cares about this Country.  That is not a half bad motive by most peoples’ standards, and it is hard to argue otherwise and sound rational.

If Sarah Palin runs, it will certainly be a political analyst’s dream to observe.  Fear is not a factor for the Palins, and they seem to enjoy the challenge of overcoming all the predictions about their family.  They might just shock us again in the weeks to come–and the ones after that.

Think Obama and Palin Are a Lot Alike? Think Again

Posted by Dr. Gina Loudon on September 24, 2010

As seen on Big Journalism

In a recent article by Robert Schmul on AOL Politics, he has hit conservatives below the belt in a way that he hopes will stick.  If you can’t get the American population to get behind your socialist President, then just try to paint the conservative leaders as suspiciously similar to him.

Uh, not so much.

He claims that Sarah Palin is a lot like Barack Obama.  He points to similarities that are encapsulated at

  • Both emerged quickly on the national scene and used their charisma to become media-magnified political celebrities.
  • Both were tapped to deliver major speeches at national party conventions.
  • Both followed up their initial national exposure with well-publicized books.
  • Both became nationally recognized as Washington outsiders with limited governmental experience.
  • Both share somewhat exotic backgrounds far removed from the continental United States.
  • Both have positioned themselves in opposition to the existing establishments.
  • Both created followers who are closely connected and willing to work on behalf of emerging and engaging personalities.

But I see major differences.

Obama is a socialist, Sarah Palin is a capitalist.  That is basic and definitive, and makes any comparison rhetorical.   Those observations are no more relevant than their sharing a preference in breakfast cereal.

Obama is the most pro-abortion president in history.  Abortion is an act that places self-interest first.  Sarah Palin gave birth, at a most inconvenient time, to a beautiful little boy who has Down Syndrome.  That is an act of selflessness, compassion, and love.

Obama holds a European socialist view that America should apologize to the world for being a super power for so long.  Sarah thinks America is still Reagan’s “shining city on the hill” and should continue to lead the world into a bright future for all who understand the precious concept of freedom and individual liberty.

Obama looks most comfortable at a U.N. meeting with all his like minded friends who long for one-world government.  Sarah looks most comfortable at home, making moose stew dinner for her family after a good hunt.

Obama leaves God out of the Christmas address, the Thanksgiving address, the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence, and the Jewish Proclamation, all while arrogantly asking him to bless our Nation.

Sarah takes a prayer team with her to hold her accountable everywhere she goes. She literally doesn’t make a political move without joining her prayer team and asking for direction from God—not one.

Obama depends on a teleprompter, because he wants to be sure his words are packaged and perfect.  Sarah Palin wrote on her hand, because that’s what chicks do, and she is real.

Here is an observation Mr. Schmul:  While Republican candidates clamor for the Palin endorsement in primaries, it is difficult to find a Democrat who wants to even be seen campaigning with Obama.

No one knows if Sarah will ever run for office again.  She is a private citizen who is one of the most effective voices speaking for the American people today.  She does not even need an office to do that.  Obama is elected, running, and so out of touch with America that he still clings to notion that the only reason for the unpopularity of his health care plan is that Americans just don’t get it.

Using Robert Schmul’s approach, one could find “commonalities” between Hitler and Mother Teresa, but the reality is there is no comparison when it comes to their hearts, their goals, and their legacy—the things that really count.

I think the MSM will continue to attempt to cast erroneous aspersions upon Sarah Palin and other conservatives, such as comparing them to Barack Obama, in an effort to dismay Sarah’s base, and frighten conservatives.  There are only two problems with that:

  1. Sarah doesn’t need a base because she isn’t running for anything so far.
  2. Patriots don’t scare easy.
