Palin Speaks to 16,000 at Women of Joy Conference in Louisville, Kentucky

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 17, 2010

Governor Palin encouraged women in their faith at a conference of evangelical women in Louisville, Kentucky on Friday night. Peter Smith at The Courier-Journal reports:

Sarah Palin told a Freedom Hall crowd of about 16,000 Friday night that she was there to inspire women in their faith, not to talk politics.

But the 2008 Republican candidate for vice president acknowledged she couldn’t help but do the latter, saying politics “courses through my veins.

And Palin — now a best-selling author and headline speaker at tea-party tax protests — did plenty of both in the course of her nearly hour-long talk at an evangelical Christian women’s conference.

This nation needs you,” Palin told the women. “Know the facts. Stand for what’s right. Don’t be discouraged by the mocking of those who want to claim we just cling to our religion. I’m the first to admit — yeah, I do cling to my faith. That’s all I’ve got.”

Palin mixed stories of personal struggles, calls for women to be good mothers and good citizens and criticism of President Barack Obama — without ever mentioning him by name.

She asked for the women — who greeted her with an enthusiastic standing ovation — to provide a “prayer shield” to strengthen her against what she said was “deception” in the media.

She denounced this week’s Wisconsin federal court ruling that government observance of a National Day of Prayer was unconstitutional — which the crowd joined in booing. She asserted that America needs to get back to its Christian roots and rejected any notion that “God should be separated from the state.”

“Hearing any leader declare that America isn’t a Christian nation and poking at allies like Israel in the eye — it is mind-boggling to see some of our nation’s actions recently, but politics truly is a topic for another day,” Palin said.

That was allusion to an Obama speech on the shared values of America’s various religious groups and to his administration’s criticism of Israel expanding settlements in occupied territories.

Palin spoke for nearly an hour at the start of a three-day Women of Joy conference, one of a series of three-day women’s conferences held in various cities and featuring Christian speakers, musicians, comedians and others.

Phil Waldrep, whose ministry sponsors the conferences, said before introducing Palin that it would not be “a political rally.”

Rather, Waldrep said, Palin would encourage fellow mothers and others by speaking as someone who has demonstrated that “being pro-life for Sarah Palin was not a political position, it was a spiritual conviction.” Palin chose to bear her baby Trig in 2008 despite his prenatal diagnosis with Down syndrome.

“We thought she would be a very good fit for us,” Waldrep said. “There are a lot of women today who have special-needs children, such as with autism or Down syndrome.”

Palin said she struggled to maintain those convictions at the time, urgently praying that God would spare her child from the diagnosis. But she recalled looking out her Anchorage, Alaska, office on a snowy day and getting a doctor’s call confirming it.

“I had nowhere else to go… but prayer,” she said.

But when she held Trig after his birth, she was convinced they did the right thing. “Choosing life may not be the easiest path, but it really is the right path,” she said.

Special-needs children “make the world a better place,” Palin said. “It’s our job to make the world a more welcoming place for them.”

[…]

Tickets for the event sold quickly after Palin was announced as a speaker in earlier this year. Last year, the event drew about 5,000, Waldrep said.

“PIPELINEGATE” and the White House

Posted by nypalinpower on March 11, 2010

by NYPalinPower – http://www.nypalinpower.blogspot.com

Why is the President of the United States suddenly getting publicly involved in Alaska politics?  It seems curious and timely that all of the sudden Obama decides to make a complete 180 degree turnaround and is so very interested in becoming directly involved in the same Alaska Pipeline project that Sarah Palin for years has been working on and had finally secured funding for.

President Obama has just announced he is getting the White House to oversee the Alaska Pipeline project and is sending an envoy to Alaska to work with and oversee the project with the state legislators.  So now, we have the White House controlling state business.  And that’s really funny because Governor Sarah Palin had already secured this project along with then Lt. Governor Sean Parnell.  Do you think the President wants to take over the project and take the credit away from Sarah Palin?  Perhaps he has an interest in hurting Sarah Palin by destroying her project altogether and preventing it from going through?  Maybe he is so angry at her that he is using the White House to get back at her? Does he want to hurt Sean Parnell’s chances of re-election?  Could the President be abusing his executive power? Hmm?  I don’t know, but if he is, then this is a scandal, I’ll just call it “Pipelinegate”.

There are two reasons for this, I think.

Alaska Governor Sean Parnell, who took over Sarah Palin’s job last year is up for re-election.  He is way ahead in all the polls to get the Republican nomination.  The general election will be held in November.  Parnell has been working very hard on the Alaska Pipeline project along with Sarah Palin when she was governor, and the project has been on track to receive the funding it needed from Alaskan legislators (at least up until this week when it was announced the President is taking over). http://www.conservatives4palin.com/2010/03/alaska-rep-mike-hawker-still-opposing.html

But why would the President use his executive power to hurt Sarah Palin?  Could she be a possible threat to his re-election campaign in 2012?  Could it be that he is a little bit angry that she is running around the country going to bat for conservatives to unseat legislators in Washington who are not doing their job, mostly Democrats? Sarah is a patriot and she is doing it for her country so it can get back on the right track. If conservatives (mostly Republicans) win the elections, then the Republicans might have enough seats in the House and Senate to take over a majority and gain control of Congress.  If this happens, the President will be in a weaker position than he is today. Do you think he is angry about that? Or maybe he is angry because Sarah Palin saw some major flaws in his healthcare legislation which he desperately wants to pass, and she gave the public the heads up?

Gosh!  Is it really worth it Mr. President to scandalize yourself and abuse your White House privileges because of your anger? This could hurt your chances in 2012 for re-election.  Why do you take the chance? Have you already decided you will not run for a second term?

This is only the beginning, folks.  I think “Pipelinegate” will become huge and the President will be caught in an even bigger scandal than Nixon was a part of.  He is using his power of the executive office to hurt the other side politically.  He is manipulating Alaska’s state business for revenge instead of doing his job as Commander-in-Chief leading our country into prosperity and peace at a time in which our country needs a leader.

Obama’s Latest Power Grab: Alaska’s Pipeline

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 10, 2010

Obama’s abuse of executive power and disregard for states’ rights is astounding.  And the Democrats are going right along with his dismantling of the American Dream.  Just a few days ago, the Democratic-controlled Senate voted down Senator Jim DeMint’s Land Grab Amendment, with which he attempted to block Obama from his secretly planned land grab of 10 million more acres of America.

Now Obama is planning something even more insidious:  he plans to put the Alaska Pipeline, the decades-old dream that Sarah Palin turned into reality, under the control of the executive office.  Can you imagine that?  How dare he!  When will America say enough is enough and impeach this traitor!

Those familiar with the players in this game believe that Obama’s true intentions are not promotion but sabotage of the pipeline efforts. Gary Jackson at A Time for choosing has explained in detail Obama’s political connections in Alaska and how he is planning to use his political hacks to seize Alaska’s pipeline.  MelBryant at Conservatives for Palin has also written a detailed article about the proposed pipeline grab.  So I won’t attempt to add to that discussion, but I strongly urge you to read their articles.

Some highlights from Gary’s article:

The gasline is something Alaskan’s have worked toward for 50 years. Building the pipeline, or at least starting the thing, has been a campaign promise made by pretty much every Gubernatorial candidate for decades.

Sarah Palin made the fulfilment of this half a century old dream a centerpiece of her administration. So important was this project to Alaska and Sarah Palin, on her very first day in office she started putting a team together and drafting the plan that would become legislation known as the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA) This was very popular legislation with only one legislator, Ralph Samuels voting against it.

[…]

At first glance, this looks good, right? Obama is finally realizing we need to develop our own resources, after loaning his buddy George Soros’ Brazilian oil company, Petrobas, ten billion dollars to drill offshore in Brazil. And maybe Obama is trying to steal Sarah Palin’s thunder here.

Unfortunately, I believe you’d be wrong, and I believe my colleague is, as well. I don’t think Obama is trying to steal credit for this deal, I think he is trying to kill it.

Frankly, when has Obama done anything to support energy development in America? On the contrary, Obama and his minions have openly worked to thwart any and all domestic development of natural resources.

[…]

Look, I want to stress here that at this point, we aren’t really sure what Obama and his crew are up to, but if past is prologue, you can be pretty confident they are up to no good. There is absolutely a reason why this particular fellow, Larry Persily, was chosen.

Think about it, why would a “journalist” with ties to a far left hate website, that spreads lies about Sarah Palin on a daily basis be chosen as a “federal energy coordinator” and be given control of her signature achievement?

Sarah Palin is one of the most accomplished Governors in the nation. Her list of achievements are great, but the one thing that she really takes great pride in, is her and her administration’s incredible achievement in setting up AGIA and forging the deal with TransCanada and Exxon-Mobil. This is the largest construction project in North American history, and an achievement that any person would take great pride in. This gasline will go a long way towards making America energy independent.

We know that Sarah Palin is a force of nature, come campaign season she will be all over the country spreading her message of liberty, freedom, and common sense conservatism. Most people consider Sarah a front runner for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, and a shoe-in to be the 45th President. What do you think the collapse of one of her signature accomplishments would mean?

Persily, who is openly hostile to Sarah Palin, will be in a position to effect the TransCanada deal.

This doesn’t pass the smell test at all. We are going to be looking into this a lot further, but for now we are cautioning readers to be on alert, and know that Obama, and his gangster regime are up to something.

Additional points from Mel Bryant’s article:

Almost one year ago, C4P predicted that the president would eventually attempt to take over, and take credit for, Governor Palin’s work to get Alaska a natural gas pipeline (you can read more about AGIA here and here).

[…]

 After spending months attacking Palin and obstructing her legislative agenda, Persily got called up to the big leagues. Just like Kim Elton. Funny how that worked out.

Now the president’s looking to increase the power of Persily’s position.

 Adrienne Ross at Motivation – Truth writes:

This begs the question: Has President Obama suddenly seen the light–or is he trying to snuff it out?

She sums the whole situation up succinctly: 

Smell anything yet? Apparently Denmark is not the only place where rotten things reek.

 On the heels of the announcement of Obama’s plans came today’s troubling news (h/tp Ron Devito) at the Juneau Empire:

Legislative opponents of Trans-Canada Corp.’s state-backed natural gas pipeline project stripped much of the money Gov. Sean Parnell has sought for the state’s role in pushing it forward from the budget adopted by the House Finance Committee on Tuesday.

[…]

House Democrats who had backed the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act under which Trans-Canada had won state support criticized the cuts as an attack on the gasline.

At a press conference Tuesday, House Minority Leader Beth Kerttula, D-Juneau, warned the Legislature could stall as pro-industry representatives attempt to reopen fights over gas pipeline and oil tax issues from the last few years.

“We’re headed for some kind of meltdown,” she said.

The money Parnell requested would have been used by the Departments of Law, Revenue and Natural Resources for the state’s role in moving toward a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission certificate for the Alaska Pipeline Project. The project is sponsored by Trans-Canada with partner ExxonMobil under AGIA. A competing pipeline sponsored by ConocoPhillips and BP also is in the works.

Hawker denied anything “skulduggerous” was happening in an attempt to stop the Trans-Canada effort to which he had earlier opposed. He said the move was a reaction to Alaskans who have let him know they wanted more scrutiny on the issue.

Hawker said under the budget passed by the committee, the administration would receive 30 percent of what Parnell said was needed. It would receive the remainder when the Parnell administration shows that TransCanada successfully receives commitments to ship gas in an “open season” scheduled to begin May 1.

“I’m looking to balance this so the Legislature can’t be accused of hamstringing or otherwise making it impossible for the AGIA process to continue forward,” Hawker said.

Democrats said Hawker’s test would be impossible to pass, because the open-season process was only the beginning of negotiations.

Rep. Les Gara said the “precedent agreement” that the budget called for was impossible to meet. Such an agreement is an unconditional bid to ship gas, while experts who have testified to the Legislature said to expect conditional bids as a way to begin negotiations.

“There’s going to be no precedent agreement; we all know that,” Gara said.

Gara warned that withholding the money sought by Parnell could delay the state’s ability to meet its commitments under AGIA and could weaken the state’s hand in forcing BP, ConocoPhillips and ExxonMobil to develop a pipeline.

“They’re not going to move ahead with a gas line on their own. We have to push them,” Gara said.

[…]

The Finance Committee also cut money for the Parnell administration to work on an in-state gas line to Southcentral after Hakwer questioned “the commitment of this administration in moving this project forward.”

Other legislative bills would take responsibility for in-state gas away from Parnell, and vest it elsewhere.

Gas pipeline funding, both for the in-state gasline and AGIA pipeline work, remains a priority for this administration and we will continue to work with both the House and Senate to restore full funding,” said Sharon Leighow, Parnell’s spokesperson.

It might be worthwhile to note here this bit of information from yesterday’s article  at  Juneau Empire.

Persily currently works for House Finance Committee Co-chair Mike Hawker, R-Anchorage, but has bipartisan support in the state as well as Washington, D.C.

It looks like Obama’s hacks in Alaska are already at work doing his dirty work for him.  

It is time for Americans to stand with Governor Palin and Governor Parnell to block this egregious abuse of power by the Obama Administration and its minions.  It is time for Americans to stand up and speak out on this and other issues – while there still is time.

VWRC Lincoln Day Dinner

Posted by Dr. Fay on February 19, 2010

By Tracey Porreca – Finding Myself in Alaska

Every year, Women’s Repulican Clubs around the United States organize Lincoln Day Dinners. These dinners are the primary annual celebration and fundraising event of many state and county organizations of the Republican Party in the United States. Because our club, the Valley Republican Women’s Club, was chartered less than a year ago, we weren’t in a position to organize a dinner last year, but this year we decided to jump in the fray and put one on. And what an event it was! From the venue, to the attendees, to our keynote speaker Alaska Governor Sean Parnell, everything just seemed to fall into place. We had many dignitaries and prominent individuals in the room, as well as some great patriots. Now, I was a nervous wreck because I wanted so much for this event to be perfect. I’ve spoken to groups of 2,000 or 3,000 but was more nervous about this event than any other I’ve been a part of. I have to say, we did a great job!

We held the event at Settler’s Bay Lodge. I cannot say enough good things about the venue and the people who run it. I was a caterer when I was younger, and also managed a restaurant, and I know professional when I see it. These guys are top notch. If you ever have a chance to come to Wasilla, I highly recommend their restaurant – beautiful views and excellent food. Here is the room, all decked out.

The view from the room was gorgeous

Julie is our Vice President this year and she did a wonderful job organizing our silent auction items before the event and collecting funds afterward. Julie and other board members were on hand to keep everything running smoothly.

Our 2009 President Gayle Ann and her husband Daniel looked great

As the sun set, everyone filed into the room and the evening would begin soon – look at that view!

Sarah Palin’s mom, Sally Heath, and club secretary Ivy arrived and took their seats

Governor Sean Parnell took his seat and Sarah Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, came over to chat and catch up

The show is on and it’s my turn to welcome everyone and get things started

Julie read a message from US Senator Lisa Murkowski who was not able to attend (she is busy in Washington DC dealing with the greenies)

Alaska State Representative for District 14 Wes Keller gave the invocation

Next, the Mayor for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, our own Talis Colberg, gave a whitty introduction of the governor

Finally, we heard a wonderful message from Governor Sean Parnell. Check out the videos below to see clips of his message

We were honored to have the governor as our keynote speaker and the club gave him a gift

Our board with the Governor – myself, Julie, the Governor, Ivy, and Carol.

I was honored to have my photo with the governor

The governor had to leave for another event and after a short break, Alaska Senator Linda Menard gave a legislative update

We then had a little fun. We announced the winners of the silent auction items, then had a live auction with Don Benson as the auctioneer and I helped him point out bidders. We auctioned a glacier landing and flight seeing tour through Blue Ice Aviation donated by Wes Keller.

Here are some of the videos of the governor’s speech

On Opportunity

On Republican Principles

On Healthcare Reform

I hope you all have had a feel for what the evening was like. It was a wonderful event and I’m glad I’ve had the opportunity to share it with you!
