It’s been anticipated for months and now, “The Undefeated” is available today on DVD.  Personally, I am headed out to my local Wal-Mart before work to pick up five (yes, that’s 5) copies.  Three copies will be used as gifts, one copy is for myself, and one I will use to loan to others so that they can see for themselves the stellar record and accomplishments of Governor Sarah Palin and her team.

Written and produced by Stephen Bannon, “The Undefeated” is a  fast-paced  documentary presented in three acts.  You can read more about the film here

If you can’t find the DVD locally, you can order it online at Walmart for $12.96 or Amazon for $12.99.  Walmart also has what is being promoted as an “exclusive”, “The Undefeated” DVD packaged with the “Going Rogue” audiobook for $14.96; however, at time of writing the item is shown as out of stock.

So much for the ‘shoots wolves from helicopters’ myth

Posted by joshpainter on June 11, 2011

Some left wing bloggers may be starting to realize that the Palin emails they fought relentlessly to have released are not the silver bullets they had hoped for to use to destroy the object of their hatred. Information contained in the documents, in fact, provides contradictory evidence to one of the many myths they have perpetuated about Sarah Palin.

The emails shatter the mythological image of a bloodthirsty Sarah Palin, assault rifle in hand, maniacally pursing Alaskan wolves from the skid of a black helicopter, fiendishly laughing as she slaughters the poor creatures. Lefty bloggers have been pushing that one for years. But, according to the liberal Washington Post, the emails prove otherwise:

The governor told her fish and game commissioner in blunt terms that she opposed using state helicopters to hunt wolves and preferred paying private hunters.

“We have to act quickly on this as predators are acting quickly and rural families face ridiculous situation of being forced to import more beef instead of feeding their families our healthy staple of alaskan game. Nonsense. Unacceptable – and not on my watch,” she said.

Her source of information? “Todd interviewed buddies who live out there… Some confirmation that state intervention isn’t first choice w/the locals,” Palin said.”We need to incentivize here,” including providing money for trappers.

Governor Palin did indeed strongly support predator control, and she clearly favored paying hunters a bounty to keep the wolf population in check, but the image of her personally shooting the predators from aircraft has finally been shot down. The emails also show that her motivation for keeping the wolf population at manageable levels was her concern for the welfare of Alaska’s rural families who depend so heavily on caribou and moose, the wolves’ prey, for food and warm clothing.

Another email demonstrates Gov. Palin’s opposition to hunting bears in the McNeil River Bear Sanctuary:

“I am a hunter. I grew up hunting – some of my best memories growing up are of hunting with my dad to help feel (sic) our freezer. I want Alaskans to have access to wildlife…BUT – he’s asking if I support hunting the bears in the sanctuary? No, I don’t… I don’t know any Alaskans who do support hunting the McNeil bears that frequent the viewing area. Many Alaskan and Outside visitors view these animals on the McNeil river, within the sanctuary, and, as my parents have reported back after their viewing trip, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see such beauty on that river.”

Ashley Judd, please pick up the red phone. It’s Defenders of Wildlife on the line, and they’re in panic mode.

Statement by Anchorage PD exposes lies about Todd Palin

Posted by joshpainter on January 26, 2011

According to infotainment site TMZ, the Anchorage Police Department has released a statement explaining that although they have seized evidence in a massage parlor sting operation, none of the evidence shows any sort of link between a massage therapist named Shailey Tripp and Todd Palin.

Not only does the APD statement directly refute allegations made in the tabloid National Enquirer and spread across the internet by leftist and gossip web sites, but the police department also revealed that the Enquirer published their lies without even bothering to contact Anchorage police officials to verify their misinformation.

The website Uncoverage.net finds a curious coincidence in the timing of media coverage (what little there is of it) of the APD statement:

“…this attempt to ‘bury’ this story in the SOTU coverage really reeks of MSM business as usual. Slime the conservative morning noon and night…..bury the retraction on a busy news day.”

To which we say, what retractions? So far only TMZ (to their credit) and Uncoverage.net have reported on the APD statement.

The lying, lamestream media just won’t stop making things up.

Wasilla Bible Church arson anniversary passes with little notice

Posted by joshpainter on December 18, 2010

– by Josh Painter
*

Early this week the second anniversary of the intentional torching of the church Gov. Palin’s family attends passed with little or no notice by the lamestream media, which never gave the chilling crime much attention to begin with.

On the evening of December 12, 2008, the church was damaged by a fire which caused an estimated $1 million damage to the church building. An investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives several days later confirmed that the burning was a case of arson, as accelerants were found in a number of locations on the church’s exterior, including around entrances and exits. Several people were inside the structure at the time, but all were able to escape the fire unharmed.

Though several federal, state and local agencies were involved in the investigation, no arrests have been made, nor have any solid leads been announced. The media reported the fire and the subsequent determination that arson was involved, but quickly lost interest in the story.

If, God forbid, it had been a church the Obamas attended that had deliberately been torched with no arrests or leads produced in even the first few weeks (let alone two whole years), the media would be screaming in outrage that a “hate crime” was being allowed to go unpunished. The press would have demanded the scalps of the authorities who failed to solve the crime and punish those responsible.

Interestingly, two years after the arson, the blood lust on the left continues while the media looks the other way. On the website of Salon magazine, a letter which calls for Sarah Palin to be electrocuted by a cattle prod wielded by convicted dog abuser Michael Vick is prominently displayed. Written by someone using the name “Owen Meany IV,” the letter justifies attempted murder with the sentence:

“Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!”

This is not the first time that the extreme left has called for physical harm to be inflicted on the former Alaska governor, up to and including the crime of murder. A number of death threats have also been made against Sarah Palin and her family over the past two years.

Ironically, the left has claimed, without producing a shred of real evidence, that Gov. Palin “incited violence” in her stump speeches as a candidate for vice president in the 2008 campaign. As is always the case, upon close examination, it is the left which is doing exactly that which it claims its enemies are doing.

Again, the “tolerant” and “compassionate” left reveals its true nature. Please pray to the good Lord to continue to protect Sarah Palin and her family from all harm and evil.

Journey to the Center of Ted Nugent’s Mind

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on December 4, 2010

In Episode 4 of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” (to be aired on TLC Sunday at 9:00 p.m. Eastern), Sarah and her father Chuck Heath travel north to hunt caribou so that they may fill the family freezer.

I am constantly amazed at people who don’t understand where their food comes from. Somehow, some way, they have managed to allow themselves to believe that the meat they consume magically comes into a grocery store carefully wrapped in cellophane along with some plastic parsley garnishing the borders that separate the beef from the pork. Oh, and let’s not forget about the pretty lights and dyes used to make the “magical meat” more attractive.

Yes, people still hunt and they use the meat to stock their freezer for family meals. (I know, this concept is foreign to most of us.) This meat, and I love Sarah Palin’s description, is “healthy organic protein” which can be used to make the meat dishes we are familiar with although most of us would use ground beef or ground turkey/chicken . Examples are caribou burgers, caribou meatloaf and even caribou empanadas! ~Jackie~

From http://www.spalaska.com:
Join us this Sunday at 8/7c for a special episode of Talk Back featuring the Motor City Madman himself, Ted Nugent. We’re taking a journey into the center of Ted Nugent’s mind to discover his thoughts on hunting in Sarah Palin’s Alaska.

In ET interview, Gov. Palin leaves door wide open for a 2012 run

Posted by joshpainter on October 28, 2010

*
Entertainment Tonight co-host Mary Hart flew to Alaska recently to visit Sarah Palin in Wasilla. In the exclusive interview, which will air on ET this evening, the first woman to be Governor of Alaska and first to be the Republican Party’s vice presidential candidate told Hart that she’ll run for president in 2012 “if there’s nobody else to do it”:

The former Alaska governor, mom of five, and star of TLC’s upcoming series “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” says that when it comes to deciding whether to run: “It’s going to entail a discussion with my family [and] a real close look at the lay of the land, to consider whether there are those with that common sense, conservative, pro-Constitution passion, whether there are already candidates out there who can do the job … or whether there’s nobody willing to do it, to make the tough choices and not care what the critics are going to say about you, just going forward according to what I think the priorities should be.”

“If there’s nobody else to do it, then of course I would believe that we should do this,” Sarah tells Mary, leaving the door wide open for a 2012 run, while also noting that if it turns out there are candidates “who can do the job,” they would have her full support.

Gov. Palin also comments in the interview for the first time on the recent New York Magazine cover story about one of the possible scenarios for a Palin presidential victory in 2012, and she tells Hart how she deals with critics.

ET’s preview is here.

Palin: Todd’s Response to the Miller Flap

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 6, 2010

I am constantly amazed that the “hate bloggers” in Alaska simply won’t give up.  They just can’t seem to grasp the reality that the only thing they have been successful at is catapulting Sarah Palin to even greater notoriety.  Everything imaginable has been thrown at Sarah and yet she is like Teflon.   Earlier this week the less than illustrious Mudflats blog published a private email communication written by Todd Palin without regard for the Palin’s personal privacy.  Bring it on because both Sarah Palin and I can see Pennsylvania Avenue from our front porches.      ~Jackie~

From http://www.weeklystandard.com:

Yesterday, the anti-Palin blog Mudflats leaked an email that Todd Palin had sent to several people, in which he complained about something Alaska Republican senatorial candidate Joe Miller had (not) said about Sarah Palin’s qualifications for the presidency. Predictably, a media frenzy ensued.

Here’s Mr. Palin’s response, in a statement released to THE WEEKLY STANDARD:

My family has worked hard in supporting Joe Miller, so when I heard he’d said something less than supportive of my wife’s efforts, I responded. But it turns out we’d gotten our wires crossed and Joe hadn’t said anything like what I’d been told. So there’s no story here except the fact that the press put our personal emails online again, and again couldn’t even be bothered to conceal our email addresses or take any steps to protect our privacy.

Additionally, this story was chronicled over at The Other McCain Blog quite well.

The Alaska Senate Republican Primary Race Heats Up

Posted by loricalabrese on September 1, 2010

Sarah Palin-backed Joe Miller came out of nowhere and challenged incumbent Senator Lisa Murkowski in the Alaska Senate Republican primary. But as votes are still being counted with Miller in the lead, the primary is getting downright ugly.

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski said Monday her Republican rival Joe Miller may be creating doubt in the minds of Alaskans about the integrity of the voting process by ratcheting up the hyperbole about possible election fraud. She also stated that Miller also may be positioning himself to challenge the results if they break her way.

“It just seems that in the week since the election, it has just continued to be yet one more hype, one more mischaracterization, one more just trumped up rhetoric, that leaves people to think there’s some kind of subterfuge or some kind of shenanigans going on,” she said.

An attorney for the Miller campaign, Thomas Van Flein, who’s also Sarah Palin’s attorney, formally asked Lt. Gov. Craig Campbell for an investigation into possible tampering by an observer for the Murkowski campaign.

In a letter, Van Flein claimed the observer at the Mat-Su Division of Elections accessed a state computer for about 20 minutes on Friday while absentee ballots were being verified. Van Flein said the observer may have copied voter information.

He questioned whether a hand-count of the absentee ballots should be required, or at least a review of the computer. He also requested Lt. Gov. Craig Campbell post Alaska State Troopers at counting offices.

“I am really astounded that the Miller camp seems to be so paranoid of every step along the way, which is designed to ensure that every Alaska vote is counted,” Murkowski told The Associated Press.

Tuesday afternoon on FOX News, Miller responded to Murkowski’s accusations. “The only way we’d ever challenge is if there is evidence of tampering,” Miller said. “It’s unfortunate that we’re hearing that kind of rhetoric.”

Miller holds a 1,688-vote lead over incumbent Murkowski in the Republican primary and the Alaska Division of Elections is scheduled to begin counting many of the 25,510 absentee, questioned and early ballots Tuesday, with possible results coming in Tuesday night.

Sarah Palin Most Influential Republican in America

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 25, 2010

After Governor Palin’s winning streak yesterday, with 4 of her 5 endorsees winning and the 5th likely to win, the Internet was abuzz today about Governor Palin’s clout as a GOP kingmaker.

David A. Patten at NewsMax had this to say:

Incumbent GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s stunning setback in Alaska sends a powerful message to political insiders in both parties: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is now the GOP’s clear No. 1 kingmaker.

Upstart candidate Joe Miller, who made a lightning-fast rise in the polls following Palin’s endorsement and robo calls, credited Palin for his primary shocker.

“I’m absolutely certain that was pivotal,” he told The Anchorage Daily News.

With an estimated 98 percent of the vote tallied — and with thousands of absentee ballots yet to be counted — Miller leads Murkowski by 1,960 votes.

Political pundits suggest the outcome elevates Palin to unique status within the Republican Party.

“Clearly Sarah Palin is the most influential Republican in America,” Democratic pollster and Fox News commentator Douglas Schoen tells Newsmax. “That much is clear as the primary season winds down. And Palin clearly is the candidate who will generate the most enthusiasm if she runs in 2012.”

Miller appeared to come out of nowhere in the campaign’s closing days. A poll that RT Nielsen released Friday showed Murkowski still leading Miller by a strong margin, 47 percent to 35 percent.

[…]

Nor is her influence seen as limited to her home state — her endorsement was considered a key factor in shoring up Sen. John McCain’s right flank in his primary victory Tuesday over former Congressman J.D. Hayworth in Arizona.

“Looks like Miller won,” political analyst and Fox News commentator Dick Morris tells Newsmax. “Palin’s victory in Alaska is very impressive.

“She had defeated Murkowski’s father for governor in a Republican primary, and just defeated the daughter in a Senate primary,” Morris says. “I think she also played a key role in helping build but sentiment about McCain moving to the right, and tying him in with the tea party movement. She made him look like less of a RINO. Both wins demonstrate her power.”

Commentator and syndicated columnist Patrick J. Buchanan called the result “astonishing” on MSNBC Wednesday morning.

“Lisa Murkowski is a fairly popular senator from Alaska who settled in,” he said. “And after the death of Ted Stevens, it looked like she was a winner.
And Sarah Palin steps in, and this fella who’s relatively unknown nationally, is known in Alaska, can put him not only in the competition but maybe into the Senate race itself — this is very, very dramatic.”

Jason Horowitz at the Washington Post wrote:

Palin may have withdrawn from official life in Alaska, but the surprisingly strong showing in Tuesday’s GOP Senate primary by Joe Miller, the long-shot candidate she backed over Lisa Murkowski, made it clear to the entire country that she still exercises great influence in her home state.

[…]

This matters for Palin’s aspirations outside of Alaska, too.

Alaska is central to the political imagery, folksy charm and outsider credentials of Palin. In her introductory speech to national politics during the Republican National Convention she referred to herself as a “gal who knows the North Slope of Alaska.” The bus she rode across the country on her book tour featured Palin beaming in front of Alaska’s snowcapped mountains and spruce-spotted hills. More recently, she coined the term “mama grizzlies” to describe women who want to protect the nation from “fundamental transformation,” because there are grizzly bears “in Alaska.” Her upcoming TV show is called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”

By endorsing Miller on Facebook, boosting him on Twitter and making robo-calls for him against the heavily favored establishment candidate, Palin risked sacrificing the founding pillar of her political creation myth. Instead, preliminary results from Tuesday’s election showed Miller ahead, 45,909 votes to 43,949 votes. According to the Alaska Division of Elections, more than 16,000 absentee ballots were requested and fewer than half had been returned. Whether he ultimately prevailed or not was beside the point. Palin, whose presidential and political aspirations are still undetermined, had demonstrated that the strength of her base is not.

“Within conservative politics in Alaska she is still a very formidable force,” Miller said in a recent interview. “She’s certainly a net positive to any candidate running for office.”

[…]

Murkowski, who was vexed by Palin’s endorsement of Miller, which was widely seen as motivated not just by Todd Palin’s friendship with Miller but by Palin’s dislike of the Murkowski family, had sought to put it more diplomatically.

“If you ask Alaskans, they will talk about all of the politicians that represent them,” Murkowski said during a July campaign swing to North Pole, outside of Fairbanks. Her father, Frank Murkowski, lost the governor’s mansion to Palin in 2006. “This is the first election since Governor Palin has stepped down from office, and it’s her first series of elections across the country where she has weighed in, and it remains to be seen how that will play out in the state.”

Not anymore.

From governor to kingmaker?

Last July, Palin announced that she would be abandoning the governor’s mansion to protect the state from the costs of politically motivated lawsuits against her. Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell, she said, would be inaugurated at the Governor’s Picnic at Pioneer Park in Fairbanks on July 25. Next, she signed on with Fox, launched the book tour, raised PAC money and bestowed endorsements on like-minded candidates.

[…]

“It’s clear that there are a lot of people in the state that support and respect Sarah Palin since the presidential race,” Miller said. “It is equally clear that there are folk that no longer support her.”

“There is a ruling family and that has been reflected in the generational politics of the Murkowski family. Lisa’s appointment by her father reflects that. It’s power perpetuated not just by family but by special interests,” he said. “Palin is absolutely outside of that. She certainly came from outside of that mold when she ran for governor. In fact it was her campaign that cracked the establishment.”

[…]

Palin made an appearance with other Alaskan dignitaries at the funeral of Ted Stevens this month, but for the most part, the former governor lays low. Her house is hidden by a tall brown fence Palin erected for privacy after a reporter rented the home next door. An impressive white satellite dish rises above the studio where Palin can do her live television hits. And at the foot of the gravel road leading to Palin’s house, there is a large Joe Miller campaign billboard.
