Sarah Palin Receives The Great American Award For Patriotism, Citizenship, And Civic Engagement

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 6, 2009

This was mentioned as part of our coverage of Sarah’s visit to the College of the Ozarks, but it really deserves it’s own post. The occasion of Sarah’s visit was the Great American Awards ceremony honoring WWII and Vietnam Veterans and other Great Americans connected with the college.

Sarah, who was the keynote speaker, was herself awarded with the inaugural Great American Award for Patriotism, Citizenship, and Civic Engagement.

“History and common sense tells us that when government tries to take care of us, it ends up robbing us of our ability to help ourselves. If we empower people to be free, providing a hand up but not a hand out … then we will become a more prosperous and generous nation.”

__Sarah Palin

Thanks to the website Governor Palin 4 President for a look at the award:

Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue” Smashes Another Sales Record! Plus, A Sell Out Crowd In Missouri

Posted by Gary P Jackson on October 22, 2009

Sarah Palin’s new book, set for release on November 17th has set yet another sales milestone. According to Newsmax Magazine, Going Rogue, An American Life has smashed all previous sales records for the magazine’s book division.

Sarah Palin’s new book, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” hasn’t even been released yet.

Though it won’t be released until Nov. 17. — it’s already breaking records as an online bestseller.

In fact, it is the best-selling book ever in the history of Newsmax for pre-publication sales.

“Americans are very anxious to read this book,” Christopher Ruddy, editor of Newsmax.com said. “We have never seen so many people pre-ordering a book from us since we started Newsmax in 1998.”

Newsmax has several offers going that couple Sarah’s new book, with subscriptions to their popular magazine.

In other news, Sarah is scheduled to appear at the College of the Ozarks near Branson, Missouri. The college, which bills itself as “Hard Work U” seems to be the perfect fit for Sarah, who is known for her hard work and determination.

From KSPR ABC-TV in Springfield:

By KSPR News

College of the Ozarks news release:

Tickets to attend the Sarah Palin Convocation at College of the Ozarks on December 2, are no longer available. The ticket line quickly filled, consuming all tickets available to the public. Due to limited seating, there was a cap on available tickets. “As a charismatic speaker and highly-interesting political figure, Sarah Palin attracts much public interest,” said Sue Head, Executive Director of The Keeter Center for Character Education. “Because of this, the College anticipated that tickets would go quickly.”

Governor Palin is slated to speak at College of the Ozarks December 2, as part of the Leonard B. and Edith Gittinger Community Convocation series, which was developed to attract renowned speakers to share on the topics of character, work ethic and citizenship with College of the Ozarks students and the community alike.

It is also reported that Sarah will headline a Right To Life benefit in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on November 6th. From their Life Voice blog:

Wisconsin Right to Life Presents Sarah Palin

Yes, it’s true! Sarah Palin is coming to Milwaukee to appear at a benefit for the educational efforts of Wisconsin Right to Life. The event is Friday, November 6 at 7:30pm at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park, Hall B. You won’t want to miss this exciting opportunity to hear Sarah Palin!

While we do not have confirmation of this event, it must be noted that Sarah is a strong supporter of right to life issues, and as Governor, traveled to a Right To Life event in Evansville, Indiana to promote their efforts.

Sarah is also scheduled to be a guest on the Oprah Winfrey show in an episode that will air November 16th the day before her book hits the shelves nationwide. Winfrey, who’s show is still trying to climb out of the ratings hole it fell into after she, for the first time, endorsed and campaigned for a candidate, Barack Obama, is looking for Sarah to bring in the viewers. Her move to support Obama alienated a significant amount of her audience.

Sarah, who is ratings gold, just ask Lorne Michaels, should help Oprah’s floundering ratings. Just the dynamics of the interview will be worth a look.

Sarah Palin Advancing in a New Direction

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 22, 2009

According to news sources, Sarah Palin has scheduled two other speaking engagements in addition to her November 16 interview with Oprah Winfrey. Keep in mind that there has been no official word from a Palin spokesman concerning any of the three engagements. Several times in the past, groups have issued an invitation to Governor Palin to speak at an event and then advertised that she would be making an appearance before receiving confirmation from her that she would indeed do so. That has resulted in misunderstandings and negative publicity. So with that caveat in mind. the following news items are presented.

On October 18, Ozark’s First announced Governor Palin’s December 2 speaking engagement:

Former republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin is coming to the Ozarks.

She’s booked to speak at the College of the Ozarks on Wednesday, December 2nd.

It’s for the Leonard B. and Edith Gittinger Community Convocation at the Keeter Gymnasium.

The tickets are free; call (417) 690-2240. They’ll be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis the week of Thanksgiving.

The former Alaska governor is expected to speak at 7 p.m. that day.

On October 20, KSPR News announced that the tickets had been sold out:

College of the Ozarks news release:

Tickets to attend the Sarah Palin Convocation at College of the Ozarks on December 2, are no longer available. The ticket line quickly filled, consuming all tickets available to the public. Due to limited seating, there was a cap on available tickets. “As a charismatic speaker and highly-interesting political figure, Sarah Palin attracts much public interest,” said Sue Head, Executive Director of The Keeter Center for Character Education. “Because of this, the College anticipated that tickets would go quickly.”

KTUU TV announced on October 20 that Governor Palin would be speaking at a Right to Life Event in Milwaukee on November 6:

Former Gov. Sarah Palin will speak in a Milwaukee, Wisc. suburb next month as part of a program presented by Wisconsin Right to Life.

Officials say tickets must be purchased in advance with a limit of four per order.

Palin’s stop in Milwaukee comes 11 days before her memoirs are to be released.

On October 21, the Juneau Empire published this summary:

Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is about to re-emerge on the national scene.

It’s been four months since Palin resigned as Alaska governor, and she’s largely been out of the public eye working on her memoir. “Going Rogue: An American Life” will debut next month.

Now Palin is ready to help promote the book by sitting down with Oprah Winfrey, who endorsed Barack Obama in the presidential election.

Harpo Productions announced Tuesday that Palin will appear on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Monday, Nov. 16.

According to Harpo, the interview will be Palin’s first about her new book, and it will be the first time Palin and Winfrey will have met.

Palin’s book was No. 4 on Amazon.com’s best-seller list on Tuesday. It’s slated to be released Tuesday, Nov. 17, the day after Palin’s interview with Winfrey.

Palin will also be hitting the speech circuit in November and December.

Palin is scheduled to speak in a Milwaukee suburb next month as part of a program presented by Wisconsin Right to Life.

Officials say no tickets will be sold at the door of the Nov. 6 event at Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park in West Allis, Wis.

Palin also is set to speak about patriotism, citizenship and civic engagement on Dec. 2 at the College of the Ozarks in southwest Missouri. The Springfield News-Leader reported Tuesday that Palin will be the featured speaker for a community convocation.

The College of the Ozarks is a Christian school near Branson with about 1,400 students.

Since resigning from office July 26, Palin has made only a few public appearances, most notable a speech before investors in Hong Kong. She’s also appeared at a gun rights dinner in Anchorage, and attended the welcome home ceremony in Fairbanks for soldiers, including her son, Track.
