Governor Palin pushes for Ted Cruz

Posted by Roderic Deane on July 24, 2012

In a Facebook post from yesterday, Governor Sarah Palin reiterated her support for Ted Cruz, especially since early voting has begun.

Support Ted Cruz

Early voting began yesterday in the run-off election for U.S. Senate in Texas. [It runs through Friday, July 27th.] Texans have a clear choice in this race, and I encourage them to support Ted Cruz, a strong conservative fighter who will protect and defend our Constitution and not just go along to get along with the reckless spending of the permanent political class in D.C. The high-paid consultants of Ted’s well-funded opponent are in full panic mode and have plunged millions of dollars into false personal attacks against Ted meant to dispirit us and break our conviction. We’ve all seen these tactics before, but together we can make sure they don’t succeed. I encourage Texans to get out and vote for Ted Cruz.

– Sarah Palin

P.S.: For those of you outside of Texas looking to support Ted you can do so by visiting his website here.

The run-off election is Tuesday, July 31st. Governor Palin knows how important this is. Do you? Please support Ted Cruz in whatever way you can!

A tragedy, yes, but a political opportunity? Are you kidding me?

Posted by Roderic Deane on July 24, 2012

Last week’s horrific events in Aurora, Colorado should give us all pause. We need to reaffirm our love of family and cherish those we hold dear. Our lives can change in an instant, through no fault of our own. It could be due to a careless drunk driver, a sinister combatant in Afghanistan, or a willful, homicidal maniac in our very own neighborhood!

Life is full of joy, as God intended, and yet so full of sorrow. The sorrow is a consequence to the gift of joy, but God also made us a promise that we would be forever reunited with our loved ones in Paradise.

As we wrestle with the consequence of mortality, we must be mindful of God’s eternity. Through the horrible acts of deranged man, we should be reminded of the futility in attempting to create a perfect world. The perfect world is beyond our human capabilities and only manifested in the eternal joy of Paradise.

I am troubled by the attempt to paint our human lives as the end-all, in an attempt to capture political gain. I truly believe human life is not the end-all and resist the temptation of a man made utopia, as if God and His promises do not exist. We are tempted and encouraged to think otherwise by countless politicians, movie producers and journalists. We must resist this temptation and recognize that our time on this earth is short, by God’s design.

Who now can imagine the horrors of The Civil War, when countless young men were cut down in battle, denying their families the longevity of their family line? As a vibrant society, we benefit from everyone’s sacrifice and move forward in an attempt to do better and prosper. We should not forget past sacrifices and, instead, honor them! Those countless sacrifices made this country the envy of the world, but we now seem to have forgotten them and are suffering the consequences of aimless direction.

Thus are the lessons to be learned by last week’s tragedy in Colorado. From our current perspective, we will probably never make sense of it. Over time, however, we WILL persevere and God’s loving hand will guide us to bigger and better things, if we just believe.

Evil will always exist in our human world and it has a name. Its name is Satan, the devil. The devil will never go away as long as we toil as human beings and refuse to recognize its existence.

Do you remember the shameless and evil attempts to tie Sarah Palin to the shooting of Gabby Giffords? In addition to trying to blame the Tea Party, the lamestream media and the left-wing blogosphere pushed their story of Governor Palin’s complicity for days!

We just have to believe that truth and justice will ultimately prevail and continue to live our lives as responsible citizens, despite when the lamestream media attempts to use a tragedy for political gain.

Hey Mitt! Where’s the Palin invite to the GOP convention?

Posted by Roderic Deane on July 18, 2012

Perhaps it’s too early to worry about this. After all, I don’t think any of the other GOP Presidential contenders have gotten invites to the GOP convention either…but, then again, Governor Palin should be an exception.

She was the GOP’s VP candidate in the last election, for crying out loud! She DESERVES a prime-time spot on the dais. Sure, the mainstream media and GOPe have tried to demonize her over the last 4 years, but she is still quite relevant, despite attempts to suggest otherwise. Her acceptance by the Tea Party is unquestioned and she still has the ability to galvanize the grassroots in ways that Romney can only dream of.

I keep hearing people say that we need to unify around our presumptive candidate. I say BULLSHIT! Romney needs to reach out to Governor Palin, have a face-to-face conversation, and offer her a prime spot during the Convention. In that conversation, Governor Palin needs to be given assurances that the Tea Party’s issues will be front and center in Romney’s campaign and governing agenda. If that doesn’t happen, I know an awful lot of people that are going to invest their time to help Congressional and Senate candidates this fall. Oh sure, they MIGHT hold their nose and vote for Romney, but they sure as heck aren’t going to campaign for him.

I know you agree with me and certain others do too.

Laura Ingraham

Newt Gingrich

John McCain

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

Thankfully, Mitt Romney is starting to show some cajones in a recent speech in Pennsylvania, highlighted by Mark Levin. Me thinks he just might be angling to be put in good graces with us, the grassroots and, by extension, Governor Sarah Palin.

Governor Palin Weighs in on SWATting!

Posted by Roderic Deane on June 24, 2012

I’ve been following this story for quite some time. I’m joined in this effort by many conservative bloggers, including Michelle Malkin, Stacy McCain, William A. Jacobson, Patrick Frey, Ace of Spades and many, many others.

The game afoot is the use of “lawfare” to stifle the free-speech rights of conservatives. Legal actions are instigated for nefarious reasons and in extreme cases, leftist henchmen have called 911 to communicate an act of violence by someone who has no idea that this has been done. In the past several months, there have been “SWATting” calls that have called out the police to respond to a non-existing event.

I could provide you with a link to all the stories, but you can start out by visiting my first blog post about it HERE.

The conservative blogosphere has been trying, desperately, to get this story on the national media’s radar screen. To date, it hasn’t happened despite movement in Congress to call attention to the goings on.

The fact that Governor Palin mentioned it in her speech at RightOnline underscores its importance.

Now, if she’d only weigh in on the media’s misreporting of “Fast and Furious” like Bill Whittle……

Breaking: Sarah Palin does a robo-call for Ted Cruz

Posted by Roderic Deane on May 20, 2012

I picked up the phone and, lo and behold, it was Governor Sarah Palin making a robo-call for Ted Cruz in Texas. If I’d had let it go to voicemail, I could have recorded it for you.

Folks, she’s engaging. And that’s a good thing!

Here is the audio of the robo-call, courtesy of the Ted Cruz campaign.

Vetting a VP candidate…by A.B. Culvahouse

Posted by Roderic Deane on May 16, 2012

Excellent article by the man who vetted Sarah Palin:

A short list of five to 15 leading Americans soon will be notified that the presumptive Republican nominee for president believes they are serious contenders to be his running mate. They will be asked for their agreement to join him on the GOP ticket if chosen, and in the meantime, to submit to a most intrusive and far-reaching vetting by lawyers and advisers working for the campaign. No other candidate, not even the presidential nominee himself, is subjected to the same scrutiny.

I have been a lawyer on both sides of the Republican vice-presidential vetting process. I helped potential nominees navigate the vetting gauntlet in four elections, starting in 1976, and I had the honor of doing the vetting on behalf of John McCain’s 2008 campaign. For those of you who’ve managed to steer clear of the revisionist HBO movie about that campaign, I led the team that vetted Sarah Palin, apparently the five most newsworthy days of my life.

[–]

The vetting of Sarah Palin was no less rigorous, just compressed. She was a late addition to the short list, catapulted into contention by the campaign’s calculus that a woman would broaden the ticket’s appeal. Our team of lawyers churned out the expected detailed written vetting report—only we packed eight weeks of research into less than one. We pulled information from Alaska-centric websites, including her local critics’ blogs and copies of Wasilla church sermons.

Crony Capitalism – Part Deux

Posted by Roderic Deane on November 27, 2011

Last week, I talked with Peter Schweizer and Stephen Bannon about Peter’s new book, “Throw Them All Out!” Peter’s book is a huge eye-opener to the legalized graft that exists in Washington, D.C.

Dictionary.com provides a definition as follows:

graft [noun]

1. the acquisition of money, gain, or advantage by dishonest, unfair, or illegal means, especially through the abuse of one’s position or influence in politics, business, etc.

2. a particular instance, method, or means of thus acquiring gain or advantage.

3. the gain or advantage acquired.

Of course, there are other definitions of the word “graft”, but we’ll go the definition that suits us.

Peter Schweizer talked about a number of ways that Washington politicians take advantage of their positions and use inside knowledge to enrich themselves. His book talked about insider-trading, land acquisitions based on inside knowledge, the power of campaign contributions and lobbying efforts to sway legislation to one’s advantage. What’s really sad is that most if not all of the examples cited in his book are perfectly legal. Why, you ask? Because the people that make the laws exempt themselves from that which is enforced against us, their lowly constituents.

Since Schweizer’s book has come out, Congressional hearings have been scheduled after an outcry within Republican Max Baucus’s district. Calls for his immediate resignation after disclosures in Schweizer’s book have forced him to capitulate to these demands. He has scheduled Congressional hearings this December about insider-trading in Washington as an alternative to his resignation. The big question will be whether of not any of these hearings will really effect change.

Oh, I suspect that we’ll see a few Representatives and their staffers get slaps on the wrist, but I seriously doubt that we’ll see meaningful changes until the full scope of the problem becomes known and reported on. Mainstream media is hesitant to report on examples of this legalized graft for fear of losing access to inside sources of information so vital to their jobs.

What we know is that there is a symbiotic relationship between Congress, the mainstream media and what I’ll call Big Lobby. It is the lobbyists’ money that everyone is beholden to. It forms the basis for everything else that leads to legalized graft because it is the conduit through which all information flows.

To be fair, there are certainly other instances of legalized graft that don’t go through the network of Big Lobby, but those instances still involve insider information that Congressional leaders are privvy to. Case in point is Dennis Hastert, the former Republican Speaker of the House. He was privvy to information about the path of a new highway near certain property that he owned. The path of the highway changed and miraculously ran near or through some of his property. You all know what has happened in our communities when a new highway is built to ease congestion into and out of our cities. These highways become the new growth areas and anyone holding property rights at or near an interchange can see huge gains in the value of their land as developers clamor to acquire them.

The truly scary part about all of this is that Washington, D.C. sets the stage for every other level of government, including state, county and local. The major difference is that as politics become more local in scope, the effects on us as individuals are more apparent and measurable. When a United States Congressman takes advantage of his or her position, it is often manifested in areas outside of his or her district and outside the scope of local news reporting.

Our Framers felt very strongly about citizen legislators that would bring the concerns of their constituents to Washington. As we’ve all become part of the “information age”, we now have access to information that extends far beyond local issues. In addition, our legislators no longer deal in information unique to their local districts. As citizens, we must recognize the different world that we live in and adjust accordingly.

Our Framers gave us tools to adapt our founding principles. That doesn’t mean that we cast aside those principles, it only means that we have the ability to address current times and continue to maintain those principles. What we’re seeing today is an abomination of those principles. It’s time to go back to the drawing board and reign in the explosion of extra-Constitutional laws and activities that were never meant to be there in the first place. As Sarah Palin likes to put it, now is the time for sudden and relentless reform. Otherwise, our Constitution will cease to have meaning in our society and we will once again become subject to the powers that be in some far-off place.

Today, that place is Washington, D.C.
