USA Today/Gallup: Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton The Two Most Admired Women In America

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 30, 2009

This is a new USA Today/Gallup poll out there that shows something very interesting. When asked, Americans chose both Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton as the two women they admire the most.

Lets take a look at this, as I think it says some very interesting things about America. First, without a doubt, both Sarah and Hillary are feminist icons. They are both hard core, successful women. Both tough as nails.

No surprises in the way the polling shakes out, either. Gallup asked 1025 adult Americans to rate their most admired. These two came out on top in basically a dead heat, considering the +/- 4 point margin of error.

What woman living today do you admire the most?

Hillary Clinton………………….16%

Sarah Palin………………………15%

Oprah Winfrey……………8%

Michelle Obama………….7%

Condoleezza Rice…….2%

Queen Elizabeth……….2%

Margaret Thatcher…1%

Maya Angelou………1%

Of course, this was pretty partisan, as both ladies got the bulk of their support from their particular political parties, which is why this poll fascinates me. It’s a good look at how both liberals and conservatives look at the world.

It should be noted too, that more Republicans were apt to admire Hillary Clinton than democrats were to admire Sarah Palin. Roughly 6 percent of the Republicans asked admired Hillary, while only 1 percent of the democrats admired Sarah. Again, several things come into play here, at least in my mind. One, Conservatives, and Republicans are generally more open minded, and democrats are more apt to follow the party line, no matter what. One also has to factor in education and how informed Conservatives generally are vs democrats.

Frankly, you can count me in the list of those that has at least some admiration for Hillary Clinton. I blame our friends at HillBuzz.org for this! (Just kidding, these are some of the best folks out there. They honestly do have me looking at Clinton in a different light!)

I don’t agree with her on many issues, and sometimes have my doubts about her competency, but compared to most democrat/communist party members, she comes out looking pretty good. She’s by far the most competent member of the Obama administration.

One thing that fascinates me, especially considering both of these women truly are feminist icons, is how they got there. I also think it says a bit about Conservatives and liberals. And what matters to them.

First lets look at Hillary. Frankly, you know you are an icon, when you only need a first name, something both Hillary and Sarah pull off well! Mention either one, and people know who you are talking about, though, I give Hillary the edge here, as she’s enjoyed this status longer.

Hillary took a rather conventional path to her place in the world, even for a feminist. She met Bill in college, got married and started a family. Hillary has a degree in law, and was a practicing attorney. Of course, Bill was the politician and star of the family from the start. As he worked his way through Arkansas politics, she worked and raised their daughter. Then of course, she became First Lady of Arkansas, and then, of course, First Lady of the United States. And, no doubt, she was one of the more outspoken and active presidential spouses. Of course, like in any family, the wife is most certainly a husband’s strongest, most trusted adviser.

After Bill’s time in office was over, Hillary certainly made the most of her opportunity. She was able to use her time as First Lady to make a successful bid for the United States Senate, using that time honored tradition of trading on her successful husband’s name to get her foot in the door, and then her own ability to cross over the threshold.

This is not to take anything away from her either, it just is what it is. Hillary worked hard in the Senate, and proved that she hard earned a shot at the presidency, at least to those who support her. And she was considered the front runner. If not for Obama, she might indeed by the one sitting in the Oval Office right now. Personally, I think we’d be better off!

But she still did well, and while Obama didn’t choose her as Vice President, probably out of fear of being overshadowed, she was chosen as Secretary of State, not exactly a bad thing.

Sarah’s life and path was a little different. She was more of an athlete, and dreamed of being a sportscaster at ESPN. She was a leader even then, and as team captain, led her high school team to a state championship.

She met and married her high school sweetheart. A hard working, ruggedly handsome guy with whom she has five beautiful children. He would go one to be her trusted adviser, Sarah also put herself through school, working several jobs, as well as earning some scholarships. This, of course, is why it took her longer than many of her peers in politics. She has a degree in journalism.

Like most of us, she went to work. Among other things, she worked as a commercial fisherman, with Todd. A tough, physical, but rewarding profession. She’s the complete outdoorsman who hunts, fishes, and loves to run every chance she gets.

Finding a need to serve, she became interested in politics, and steadily went from a seat on the city council to Mayor, then made an unsuccessful run at Lt Governor, which led to a position as the state’s chief energy and environmental regulator, and that of course, led her to becoming one of America’s most successful Governors, which found her in the 2008 presidential race, as the VP nominee. Her path was that of a self made woman who really had no family or spousal name to trade on. Of course, she did enjoy the support of her entire family, all along the way.

Oh, and she got to be a sportscaster, as well. At least at the local level.

Two different paths, by two different feminine and feminist icons. That’s what makes this such an interesting poll, one that is interesting to contemplate.

This of course, brings both Hillary and Sarah to 2008 and the presidential election. Neither were successful in the respective bids, but both have endured.

Like Sarah Palin, Hillary was savaged by Barack Obama and his Chicago street thug tactics. They went after both her and Bill, America’s “first black President” as he was lovingly called by the dems until Obama showed up on the scene. With a new golden boy though, the Clintons, once the most powerful force in democrat politics, were now racists, “straight up“, as Janeane Garofalo would say.

Of course, that wasn’t even a good warm up for what the Obama slime machine had ready to go after Sarah with. Frankly, you would have thought Sarah was the Presidential candidate, and John McCain didn’t even exist. Throughout the campaign, the real contest was between Obama and Palin. Those were the two who were always compared, McCain was almost an afterthought. And frankly, considering just how poorly McCain’s “all-star” campaign performed, and how severely they restricted Palin, never allowing Sarah to just be Sarah, It was a smart strategy by Obama and his team.

Other than that one odd breakdown though where Hillary cried a bit, maybe for effect, maybe just out of sheer frustration, she endured the hate piled on her by the Obama campaign, the ultra-left wing radicals that now make up the party’s base, as well as the entire media.

Then she went to work for Obama, becoming Secretary of State, third in line to the presidency. Not too shabby.

Sarah also endured. Frankly though, and I’ve said this before, and surely will say again, in the 50 years I wandered this planet I have never seen the effort to destroy someone that I have seen thrown at Sarah Palin. You had everything Obama and his weasels could throw together, the most vile, ugly, dirtiest Chicago style hate and slime they could muster, followed by an over the top assault by the dishonest media, and of course, the recruitment, by the campaign, and then continued coordination from the White House after the election, of the Alaska Mafia., the radical bloggers and serial ethics charge filers.

Sarah of course, after watching Obama and the Mafia make her job in Alaska totally undoable, as they stole millions in taxpayer dollars, famously stepped down from office, in what is turning out to not only be an incredibly smart and self sacrificing move for Alaska, but also the shrewdest political move most of us have ever seen. This truly shows that Sarah has incredible political instincts.

Since stepping down, Sarah has become a record setting, best selling author, who is in her fifth straight week atop the New York Times Best Seller List, the spot she debuted in.

Sarah has also become the most popular Conservative in America, hit the talk show circuit, even doing a gag with Conan and Bill Shatner, and is now considered the absolute favorite to win the 2012 GOP nomination, as well as the presidency.

More importantly though, is the fact that just as the Obama campaign never let up on her, even after the election, she never let up on Obama. Unrestrained by the McCain campaign, and just being herself, Sarah has been on the attack ever since. No quarter is given to Obama, Congress or any of their insane ideas.

Sarah has turned a social network into her personal domain, and her every note to her over 1 million Facebook supporters is picked up by all of the news media and quoted world-wide. She has shown a knack for condensing relatively complicated issues down to their rawest, simplest forms for maximum impact.

Her first comment on ObamaCare and the inevitable rationing of health care, especially to the elderly, disabled, and chronically ill, birthed what might be the most important phrase of the year, if not the decade. “Death panels” will forever be the phrase most associated with ObamaCare.

Of course, as with everything Sarah, “death panels” stirred incredible controversy. (Hint: it was supposed to) Those on the left called her every name in the book, some even printable. So strong was the attempt to discredit her, the President actually felt he had to single her out, little Sarah from Wasilla, a private citizen, in his joint session in front of Congress. The dog and pony festival of lies he put on back in the summer that prompted Congressman Joe Wilson to actually call him on it, giving us the decade’s second best phrase “you lie!” This one is used often now after Obama says anything more complicated and involved than “good morning” or “hello.”

Anyhow, not only did she drive the democrat/communists crazy with this incredible succinct and accurate description of health care rationing, she also embarrassed the Rockefeller, country club, RINO wing of the Republican Party. Of course, embarrassing milquetoast moderates is fairly simple.

Now some tried to make it complicated, or were just dumb, or maybe they were trying to muddy the waters, by claiming it was all about “end of life counseling, which is certainly a troubling issue, but not where she was going.

In the end, two things have happened, the far left St Petersburg, Florida newspaper proclaimed “death panels” the “lie of the year” while simaltaniously Senate Majority Leader, and hack, Harry Reid placed a questionable provision in his version of ObamaCare that would make it nearly impossible to take the “death panels” out of the picture…ever!

Funny how liberals always try and have it both ways! “There’s no such thing as ‘death panels’ and oh, by the way, it is now impossible (and illegal) to take the ‘death panels’ out of ObamaCare!

For her part, where most people would have backed down, Sarah managed to mention death panels every chance she got! In her latest, she mentioned them no less than four times, shoving those “death panels” right up their…… well……you know where!

Long story short, Sarah has shown she is not afraid to fight what she believes in. To put it all out there, not hold back, or play it safe. She has proven she is politically courageous where others are incredibly timid. These are not the times for timidity and political cowardice.

We have seen some really interesting turns too. The media is acting a little different, treating her more seriously, even somewhat complementary. And not just the conservative media. A lot of this is because people are realizing what a complete and total disaster Obama is. He has managed to not only further anger conservatives, and totally alienate the so-called independents, he’s even got many of the far left slingin’ snot!

You really, really have to work hard to completely and absolutely piss everyone off , so congratulations Obama, you’ve not only found your true calling, you’ve managed to unite the country, just not in the way you imagined!

Again, what we are witnessing, with Sarah, is two fold. Part of this is her finally being able to be herself, and make her case to the American people, on her terms. Turns out, she incredibly good at that.

Second is all of those drunk on hopenchange are now sobering up and have one hell of a hang over. They are realizing that every single prediction Sarah made at her RNC speech, as well as on the stump, has come to pass. Now is the time for the big “I told ya so!

This is leading to wild editorials from liberals such as David Michael Green, a professor of political science at Hofstra University in New York, where he says things like this:

You know, I’ve really been trying not to write an article every other week about all the things I don’t like about Barack Obama.

But the little prick is making it very hard.

Like any good progressive, I’ve gone from admiration to hope to disappointment to anger when it comes to this president. Now I’m fast getting to rage.

How much rage? I find myself thinking that the thing I want most from the 2010 elections is for his party to get absolutely clobbered, even if that means a repeat of 1994. And that what I most want from 2012 is for him to be utterly humiliated, even if that means President Palin at the helm. That much rage.

Think this guy would have said something like that a year ago? You can read it all here, it’s worth it!

Of course, among Conservatives, Sarah has become the absolute favorite. She is the defacto leader of the movement.

Politico, which leans left, just ended a reader poll. Out of nearly 17,000 votes, Sarah was chosen by 47 % of the readers as the biggest winner of 2009. Number two was Obama at 19%. “Someone Else” was third!

In the People’s Republic Of San Francisco, Sarah’s book, Going Rogue, is number three in sales! This in a town were many booksellers were proud to proclaim they would not even offer it for sale!

Even far left Ed Schultz over at Obama Central, MSNBC proclaimed her the biggest winner, going so far as to say “Show me what she has done wrong!

This is pretty strong language.

By anyone’s measure, whatever negative feelings that have been out there about Sarah Palin, slowly, methodically, and most assuredly, she is turning those around.

So let me end by saying this. Both Sarah and Hillary deserved to be called the most admired women in America. They earned it!

These two are both the biggest winners of 2009, by far.

Hillary is a big winner, because she’s managed to avoid the absolute taint that has hung over the Obama campaign since day one. She might be the only one to walk away from this fiasco with something that resembles a career.

Of course, I’m incredibly biased and in my mind, Sarah Palin is the biggest winner of not only 2009, but of the entire decade. Absolutely everyone, but her strongest fans wrote her off when McCain lost the election in 2008.

This became a weekly ritual, anytime her name was mentioned. “X” was going to end her career, no matter what “X” was!

Then she “quit” as Governor. Oh my, political suicide. Yeah, right. Incredibly savvy move that completely changed the game on Obama and his Chicago street thug strategy of trying to stop her before she ever had a chance to come after him. This, it seems, has turned out to be a flawed strategy. There’s a reason why “they” say “let sleeping dogs lie” or “let well enough alone.

Up until midway through her book tour, we were told Sarah’s career was over. Then something happened. I don’t know if it was the big crowds, the great interviews, yucking it up with Shatner, or just the realization that this is one sharp woman, who is right more than she is wrong. One thing is for sure, there has been an incredible shift in the way most of the nation looks at Sarah Palin, and that’s not only a good thing for Sarah Palin, but a good thing for America.

America needs strong, fearless, and ethical leadership. That describes Sarah to a tee.

As we prepare to start a new year, and a new decade, America has found a true leader we can all get behind, and believe in. Someone who has the courage and ability to bring this nation away from the brink of destruction, and get it back on track.

America’s brightest and most exciting days are ahead of us, and Sarah Palin will be playing a major roll, bringing us not only energy and excitement, but the common sense and leadership we need to see this happen.

I for one cannot wait for 2010 and beyond!

Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia Is On The Run And Angry The Spotlight Is On Them

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 4, 2009

The past week has been truly incredible and truly busy. So busy in fact, this is the first time I have stopped long enough to actually write about how incredible things have been and what has been going on.

Most know that our group has been writing about the democrat/communist party operatives in Alaska, their attempts at destroying Sarah Palin by continually filing bogus ethics complaints, and then illegally publicizing them.

If you don’t know, it’s illegal to disclose any information about an ongoing ethics investigation. Oddly enough, under the law, if you do this to a legislator, the complaint is thrown out and not considered. For some reason, even though it is still illegal, there is no punishment, and the complaint still stands if you do it to the Governor. How convenient.

Anyway, even though this stuff has been out there, and anyone who cares knows the names of Jeanne Devon, Linda Kellen Biegel, Shannyn Moore, Amanda Coyne, Sondra Tompkins, and Zane Henning just to name a few, no one was prepared for what has happened.

Naked Emperor News, a website that does video journalism, turned all of these Alaskan democrat/communist’s little world upside down when they released a great video, with all of the players in their own words together.

Again, we all know that Barack Obama has great ties to all of this. Obama’s then campaign chief of staff, now White House advisor, Pete Rouse, is an Alaskan. He is also great friends with former Alaska State Senator Kim Elton. I’ll get to the reason why he’s a former Senator in a second. But those two go way back having worked together on a former Alaska Lt Governor’s staff. Rouse still votes absentee in Alaska.

Everyone has heard of “Troopergate” the phony investigation, really a witch hunt, cooked up by the Alaska democrat/communist party with the help of Barack Obama. At the time CNN and others reported that Obama had been in talks with the troopers union over this. But no one seemed to care enough to stay on that story. Too busy dealing with thrills up their legs I guess.

What happened next was a conspiracy to try and harm Sarah Palin. Their hope was impeachment.

Of course, they failed, but just days before the November presidential election, Senator Kim Elton, who was ramrodding this deal, promised that Sarah Palin was going down. In the end, Sarah Palin was cleared from any wrong doing after the state personnel board reviewed the bogus Branchflower report cooked up by Steven Branchflower and Kim Elton. They slammed Branchflower’s investigation and declared Palin completely innocent.

But, the damage was done, and in pure Chicago pay-for-play thug politics, Barack Obama, upon taking office, gave Kim Elton a make work job in the Department of Interior. You can read more here.

The Naked Emperor News covers all of this, as well as the deliberate and coordinated attacks on Sarah Palin by the Alaskan democrat/communist bloggers and those filing the complaints. They even dug up audio of a radio interview where a bunch of them called in to talk about it. Of course, the bloggers still claim no collusion.

Now just like cockroaches scatter when you turn the lights on, these losers have went into panic mode. Jeanne Devon who is shown on the video several times, has, along with others, been trying as hard as possible to ban this video. She has been going after it on You Tube and elsewhere. She claims “copyright violations.”

Yeah, OK.

This is where the efforts of a dedicated group of patriots come in. They’ve all worked endlessly to make this video go viral. This video is now everywhere including international websites. I want to give a big shout out to Bob Parks who writes for the Canada Free Press and was kind enough to host the video as well as give Jeanne Devon a bit of schooling on copyright law. You can see the video here.

Now for those that don’t know, Jeanne Devon, a shopkeeper in Anchorage, is the type of person we usually describe with a word that starts with chicken but has a few more letters to it. Rather than blog out in the open,, she cries for people like Sarah Palin to be “open and transparent”, while she uses an alias. Devon, who writes for her own hate website, Mudflats, as well as the vile Huffington Post as AKMuckraker, is such a nasty woman that a Democrat legislator Mike Doogan, had enough of her and outed her to the world!

So she is going stark raving mad at this point, as is her partner in crime Linda Kellen Biegel.

So it came as no surprise this weekend when CNN employee Dennis Zaki came out with the wild story that Sarah Palin was divorcing Todd and moving to Montana. Of course, this was an out and out lie, but certainly what one expects anytime a democrat/communist opens it’s mouth, especially when they are talking about Sarah Palin!

This was an obvious, deliberate, and coordinated effort to “punish” Sarah Palin because American patriots have had enough of these vile and hateful members of the Alaska Mafia and have started fighting back.. The divorce lie was payback because the light has been shone on these losers.

Well, this started a chain reaction none of the Alaska Mafia wanted to see, I can promise you!

First to weigh in was super blogger and author Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs) who decided to turn the table on Barack Obama. Kind of a sorta Chicago deal. You pull out a knife, we’ll pull out an Abrams tank!

Of course, as always, Sarah herself put this stupidity to bed with this fantastic quote:

“Divorce Todd? Have you SEEN Todd? I may be just a renegade hockey mom, but I’m not blind!” __Sarah Palin

But the conservative bloggers weren’t done. You see everyone knows that Dennis Zaki a stringer for CNN is a known and provable liar. But where was this really coming from?

Well Zaki’s source is another one of the democrat/communist bloggers who is tied into Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia. This loser, who writes as Gryphen, has a blog called the Immoral Minority. Perfect name for a democrat/communist blog, don’t ya think?

Anyway, journalist Robert Stacy McCain was the recipient of some interesting information.

Gryphen is actually Jesse Griffin, a divorced 48 year old part time kindergarten teacher at Trailside Elementary in Anchorage. My first question is what sort of 48 year old man works part time at a kindergarten? Jesse Griffin’s only other effort seems to be spending time with his pal CNN employee Dennis Zaki making up insane stories about Sarah Palin!

You see, Jesse Griffin, who started the lie about Sarah getting divorced, is also the one who started the lie that Sarah’s youngest child, Trig, was actually Bristol’s.

Griffin is also the one behind the lie that Sarah Palin was under indictment by the FBI, which is why she was stepping down. This of course prompted the FBI to do something it rarely does, and publicly announce that, no, Sarah Palin wasn’t under any sort of investigation of any kind.

Griffin’s Immoral Minority is aligned with the other Alaska democrat/communist blogs that kept saying there was a big “iceberg” coming for Sarah Palin, and of course, all of these hate bloggers, especially Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon, who write for the Huffington Post, trumpeted this bogus FBI story as the iceberg.

You can read more of Robert Stacy McCain’s report on Jesse Griffin here.

McCain dug up some incredibly disturbing quotes from Jesse Griffin. Very vile and very troubling. If I had kids over at Trailside Elementary, I’d be concerned, especially if they were in kindergarten. This cat is certifiable!

The folks over at Flopping Aces have some interesting things to say as well.

Sarah Palin’s attorney is now involved in this deal.

OK, but you ask why bring Barack Obama into all of this, isn’t he self destructing well enough with any help? Well, yes he is. But the ties are so deep to this it just makes me mad. They wanted to impeach Richard Nixon for a lot less.

Barack Obama has ties to Alaskan’s For Truth as well as the Wasilla Project and Mythbusters. And with his man Pete Rouse’s lifelong ties to Alaska, it’s just not much of a leap to understand this deliberate and coordinated effort to destroy Sarah Palin all leads to an office somewhere at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.

Case in point. Remember a week or so ago when it was illegally leaked that Sarah Palin’s Alaska Trust Fund, her legal defense fund was itself illegal?

This is typical for the Alaska Mafia. They have filed over 20 bogus ethics complains, cost the state of Alaska at minimum $2 million tax payer dollars, basically stealing $2 mil, as well as cost Sarah herself over a half million personally. So what did they do? They filed an idiotic ethics complaint saying, basically, she didn’t have a right to raise money to defend herself!

Now this complaint has not been resolved. It’s still under “investigation.” Cue up the possible Obama plant. I say possible, because I honestly can’t say for sure. But bear with me on this. I promise not to disappoint.

You see, the guy who leaked the information claiming Sarah Palin was “guilty” was the so-called “independent investigator” hired by the state to investigate Sarah Palin!

How convenient!

This “independent investigator,” Thomas Daniel, has a day job, of course. Thomas Daniel works for Perkins-Coie. Perkins-Coie is the law firm Barack Obama uses to represent him.

Oh my.

Obama has spent almost $700,000 with the law firm this year as they, among other things, represent Obama in those dozens of law suits out there challenging his eligibility to be President.

Josh Painter put a great piece together on this that you can read here.

Also it’s reported that Perkin-Coie is the go to law firm for the democrat/communist party when they want to steal elections and manufacture votes.

Ahh, the circle of life.

So let me think….

The “independent investigator,” Thomas Daniel, knowingly committed a crime and leaked a story, a lie actually, to a reporter. And this “independent investigator,” Thomas Daniel; just happens to work at the same law firm the represents Barack Obama. What could possibly be wrong here?

Look, the democrat/communists want to destroy Sarah Palin. Heck, even some of the good old boy Republican losers want to stop her. The fear from both groups is palpable.

Sarah Palin is a true American patriot. This is a woman that has taken on corruption and stopped it cold. And frankly, she didn’t care that a lot of those who were corrupt were life time establishment Republicans. In fact, it seemed to delight her.

Sarah Palin strikes fear in all of the NYC/DC Beltway hacks. They know when she gets going she will destroy their little gravy train, their little fiefdoms. Sarah Palin represents anything but business as usual in politics.

Now for the democrat/communists, she is particularly dangerous. As Barack Obama and his Congress try to pass insane tax schemes like cap and tax, and destroy all freedom and liberty with this massive health care gambit, which is nothing less than and end run around the Constitution, a total usurpation, really, Sarah Palin stands there saying: “No!”

No one can draw a crowd like Sarah Palin, and unlike Mr Hopey Changey, when Sarah Palin speaks, she captivates the crowd with substance. Sarah talks about things that matter to Americans. But Sarah also talks about something else, the American Spirit.

Unlike Barack Obama and all of the democrat/communists who constantly run America down, Sarah Palin constantly speaks to America’s greatness. To Barack Obama, America’s greatest days have come and gone. But to Sarah Palin, America is that “shining city on a hill” that our great Ronald Reagan always spoke of.

Obama and the democrat/communists never miss a chance to disrespect our fine military. Sarah Palin never misses a chance to praise our wonderful service men and women, and remind Americans that the military has been fighting and dying for the them, and their liberty and freedom, for over two centuries. In fact, our brave troops volunteer to do this. They put their lives on the line for us daily. Sarah Palin’s son is serving, as well.

Basically, Sarah Palin represents real hope, and real change. She is a street fighter. A savvy woman who gets things done, a concept foreign in DC.

So, the enemy must destroy her!

Who is the enemy?

Well, it’s Barack Obama, and the democrat/communist party, for sure. They are destroying America, and usurping the Constitution, but they aren’t the only problem. They are also a lot of Republicans who have gotten fat and lazy in DC, and are not working for their employers, the American people.

So what can you do?

Well, I can state the obvious, which is to get behind Sarah Palin 100 percent!

Support Sarah through SarahPAC and the Alaska Trust Fund. You can also stand up and say, “No more!” every time some nut job makes up lies about her, or attacks her in any way.

But there is a lot more to it. You must get off the couch and get into the game. You must stand up to Barack Obama and the rest of the democrat/communists. You need to educate yourselves on all of the issues and speak up. Stop being comfortable, start being active. Your very liberty and freedom is at stake.

Go to tea parties, attend these townhalls that the politicians are setting up. Scream at them and tell them to get right, or else!

Grab all of your friends, especially those who say “I don’t do politics.” It’s up to you to make them understand that if they want liberty and freedom, they sure as hell better start “doing politics!”

Get out and support conservative candidates nationwide. 2010 counts, and will be the most important election in a century. If we can’t take Congress back with a solid conservative majority, and stop the march toward full absolute communist rule, we will no longer be a free nation, and liberty will be but a fleeting dream.

Sarah Palin is a true transformative figure in America, and a great lady, but even she can’t do this alone!

The Rules Have Changed. Sarah Palin Changes Everything.

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 27, 2009

Back in the mid 1990’s The Chrysler Corporation went public with a really new and exciting business model. The company best known for the K-car and inventing the mini-van at that point in time, had spent a lot of time behind the scenes to totally remake the company. They threw everything out, and started fresh. New “cab-forward” styling on their cars, and a brand new pickup truck, the first completely new truck in 25 years, and a completely refocused management, design, and manufacturing team.

Chrysler became the most exciting car company around. Envied by the other manufacturers. It really was the rebirth of a company that since the it’s formation had always been recognized as one of the best at engineering. This brought Chrysler back in a big way. Record sales, especially in trucks, helped Chrysler show healthy profits. If fact, Chrysler became so successful, Mercedes-Benz would soon come knocking with a bundle of cash and an offer!

The Dodge Division of Chrysler was in a really good place. They not only had a pick-up truck that just knocked people’s socks off! They had a world class sedan in the Intrepid. There was a new mini-van, and at the time Chrysler ruled that market with over 50 percent share. And Dodge really shook things up with the Viper, an incredible hand built sports car/muscle car that just had to be driven to be appreciated.

Dodge had a great slogan they used among the dealers and employees:

“The rules have changed! This changes everything!”

This was a real rallying point. Nothing like being in a room with hundreds of dealers and having the Dodge folks yelling “the rules have…” followed by the dealers screaming “changed!”, followed by “this changes…” “EVERYTHING!” shouted by Dodge folks and the dealers respectively.

Well, I’m here to tell you, with Sarah Palin, the rules have changed!

Look, much like Chrysler’s history, the Republican party was known for solid core principles. This dates back to Abraham Lincoln. And just like Chrysler, the party has had it’s ups and downs. It’s had periods of great highs and low lows.

One of the very best eras for the party was during the Reagan years. In car guy terminology, this was like the muscle car era when Chrysler’s Hemi(c) engine was introduced and was unbeatable on the race track. NASCAR actually ended up banning the thing and NHRA factored it into oblivion.

Ronald Reagan was that dominant as well. To this day he still inspires millions.

And of course, there were those heady days in the mid 1990’s when the Republicans, led by Newt Gingrich and others took back Congress. That was the culmination of the Reagan Revolution.

But sadly, the Grand Old Party is currently in the K-car business. Utilitarian and somewhat solid, but not exciting, and devoid of any real leadership or ideas. Now for sure, there are some exceptions, there always are. But basically, the GOP is at this point.. Not bad, but certainly not great.

Then there is Sarah Palin.

Sarah defies political definitions and traditions. Yes, she is a true conservative, a novelty in itself in the Republican party these days, but this woman is unconventional, to say the least! Just the fact that she is a woman is a big deal. While there are a lot of women in politics, and a lot of Republican women in key roles, none have the shear magnetism and gravitas Sarah Palin has.

Sarah is different from any politician out there. For one thing, she’s not a Beltway hack. Sarah Palin is an outsider. You can’t be more outside the Beltway than Alaska! Palin is someone who speaks her mind, and when she speaks, people listen. And, unlike most, Sarah Palin says what she means, and means what she says. Unheard of in Washington. In fact, Palin is so straightforward, that many either refuse to believe it, or simply can’t comprehend it.

Case in point: When Sarah gave her Independence Speech on July 3, most of the “elites” in politics, and the media claimed they “couldn’t understand her” or as one put it, they needed “Rosetta Stone” to help them decipher!

Funny thing, millions of us regular folk understood exactly what she was saying. Far from “rambling and incoherent” which has become the state run media’s talking point, Palin simply spelled out what she had achieved in her time as Governor, a lengthy list by anyone’s standard. She also explained why she was doing this. Of course, there were several reasons for Sarah’s decision to step down. This is a complicated situation, the fact of which seemed to fly right over the heads of the elitists.

Not to rehash the whole thing, but one huge factor was the fact the democrat operatives were basically stealing millions of dollars from the Alaska tax payers by filing so many bogus ethics complaints, all of which had zero credibility or merit.

Then there was the personal cost. These democrats have cost Palin and her family over a half million dollars in legal fees, defending false accusations. Palin actually had to set up a legal defense fund to help pay her bills. Of course, this is not uncommon. Many big name politicians have has to do this. But to hear the democrats tell it, Sarah is the first politician ever to do this. They’ve actually filed complaints because she is defending herself against all of the complaints! They even managed to get someone from Barack Obama’s law firm, Perkins Coie to play “special investigator” in this deal! And no one seems to see a conflict of interest by having Thomas Daniel “investigating” Sarah Palin!

You can read more about that here, and more on Perkins Coie, here.

Basically the democrats had ground Palin’s government to a halt. Nothing was getting done. That bothers Sarah immensely. Sarah is a doer. And someone who is all about getting things done doesn’t allow themselves to be halted for long!

Now one other thing that helped Sarah make her decision was the fact that to the media, and the democrats, her children absolutely fair game. Everyone knows the details, so I won’t waste your time, but the really low point was the concerted and coordinated effort to attack her youngest, Trig, who has downs syndrome. Even for democrats, this was as low as it gets.

But, the media conveniently overlooked one of the really important reasons for Sarah’s decision to step down and redeploy her efforts. Maybe since common sense is in short supply among the media and the Beltway elites, the idea of a politician stepping down voluntarily for a higher calling seems silly. To that bunch it’s all about acquiring power and never letting go. This is why they all complained that Palin’s speech was “incoherent!”

Of all of the reasons Sarah is stepping down over, the one big reason, in my mind, is her love of country. Her deep patriotism. Her sense of duty.

Sarah knows that Barack Obama is heading us on a road to ruin with his communist ideals. Obama’s plans are destroying the economy and destroying our liberty and freedom. And he is doing it at breakneck speed!

Sarah, a fiscal conservative, who slashed Alaska’s budget by nearly 17 percent for FY 2010, sees that Barack Obama has spent more money and created more debt than all of the previous 43 Presidents combined. Palin instinctively knows that Obama and the democrats are bankrupting the country, and stealing our grandchildren’s future.

Sarah also knows we need energy independence and has actually taken concrete steps toward that effort. Palin knows the nation’s economy runs on energy. Cheap, plentiful energy. This is a foreign concept to the democrats and Obama.

Sarah understands instinctively that schemes like cap and tax, and the government take over of the health care industry, are destructive to the economy, will cause massive job loss, and will destroy freedom and liberty.

Sarah gets national security. In fact, according to A.B. Culvahouse, the high powered D.C. attorney, and former Reagan advisor, who vetted all of John McCain’s prospective vice presidential candidates, Palin’s offer to be the vice presidential candidate came after her solid answers on three national security questions.

Like the rest of us, Sarah looks at Barack Obama and sees Neville Chamberlain, wrapped up in Jimmy Carter, and seasoned with a good dose of naivete. This is a dangerous world, and this is no time to be the appeaser-in-chief, or the apologist-in-chief.

So, what’s a girl to do?

Well, if you are Sarah Palin and know that Obama and his minions must be stopped and stopped now, before he and his gang do irreparable damage to our nation, you can’t sit idly by and watch.

Sarah knows she couldn’t be effective as Governor. Never mind the fact that the democrats in Alaska, the anklebiters, went insane every time she even thought about leaving the state. And logistically, Alaska is too far away from the rest of the country. So it makes sense for Sarah to step down, so she can step up.

The media elites and the establishment Republicans can’t comprehend the fact that one doesn’t have to be in any sort of political office to effect change. They certainly can’t comprehend anyone giving up what they perceive as power. These cats are the ones who have to be dragged kicking and screaming out of somewhere once they have wore out their welcome!

The media elites and the good old boys in the GOP don’t know Sarah Palin!

The story of Palin is that of a true reformer. She has done it since her earliest days as a Wasilla councilwoman, where she battled with a fellow council member over ethics. Nick Carney, the council member that actually encouraged her to run for office in the first place, had a waste management business. Not a shock, most small town council members and mayors do have some sort of business. But Carney was pushing for an ordinance that would have basically given his company a monopoly in and around Wasilla for garbage collection. Even though they were friends, Sarah fought and defeated the measure, and thus, a reformer was born.

The most well known story is how Sarah cleaned up corruption at the AOGCC. The oil and natural gas commission she chaired. This was pure Sarah Palin.

After being term limited as mayor, Palin ran for Lt. Governor. Even though she didn’t win, Palin caught the eye of Governor Frank Murkowski. Murkowski appointed her to the AOGCC. This is a powerful, good paying job. So what happened next had to be a tough decision to make.

There was a serious good old boy network in and around the oil business in Alaska. Many of the state GOP party officials worked at Palin’s agency. Most notably party chair Randy Ruedrich and former attorney general Gregg Renkes. There were major conflicts of interests between AOGCC people and those in the oil, and coal businesses which the commission regulates. Additionally, Ruedrich was known to spend a lot of company time doing party business.

When Palin tried to fix these issues, tried to clean house, she met incredible resistence. Her boss, the Governor wanted to protect his boys! In what had to be a painful decision, Sarah Palin decided to resign. She “quit.” But, she didn’t really quit!

Now just like today, all of the so-called experts said she was “committing political suicide” was destroying her chances of ever being in politics again. It seem they was slightly incorrect!

You see, far from quitting, Sarah Palin had only begun to fight! In the end, resignations were tendered, fines were paid, and some ended up in prison. As a private citizen, Sarah Palin basically took down the whole Republican establishment. No wonder the establishment types hate her!

Sarah wasn’t done quite yet though. Her next move was to run for Governor of Alaska. She beat Murkowski in the Republican primary in a landslide and then took on popular former democrat Governor Tony Knowles and beat him convincingly.

This is the history of Sarah Palin that the state run media, and Beltway elites either ignore or simply don’t understand. For someone like Sarah, an out-of-the-box thinker, and an incredibly unconventional politician, it makes perfect sense to “give up power” and step down as Governor. Just like she saw an unwinnable situation over at the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, she saw an unwinnable situation if she stayed on as Governor.

Anyone paying attention knows that Sarah Palin is not going to fade into the woodwork. Palin has already said that she is ready to come to the lower 48 and support pro-American conservative candidates. She wants to promote candidates that share her philosophy of small government, fiscal responsibility, strong national security, and energy independence.

Sarah already has speaking engagements lined up and more invites than one can imagine. If you are one of the nearly 120,000 people who follow her on twitter, you know Sarah is chomping at the bit wanting to get busy. She’s been dropping a lot of hints, and going after Obama. She will have a new account after she leaves office, and has promised it will be less “politically correct!” More of a Sarahcuda unleashed!

I did get a kick out of this tweet from Friday night:

Detroit Down” & “Rollin”: “Aint gonna shut my mouth/I know there’s got to be a few hundred million more like me/just trying to keep it free”

That pairs up quite nicely with her comment made in June in Anchorage at an event honoring Michael Reagan. Sarah was talking about how bad of a shape the nation is, and how Barack Obama’s policies were doing grave damage. She spoke of how all of her critics wanted her to just sit down and shut up. She said this:

“Politically, if I die, I die, but I won’t sit down, and I won’t shut up!” She then added: “Stand up, speak up, and be bold! Screw political correctness!”

Words to live by.

And that in a nutshell is what Sarah Palin is all about. This is someone who doesn’t care if she has hurt her chances of ever holding public office again, she has bigger fish to fry!

Sarah has a deep love for this nation. She has a love that will not allow her to just go with the flow. As she said in her Independence Day speech: “Dead fish go with the flow!”

Sarah Palin has guts, something sorely lacking nowadays. She is fearless. Sarah sees the dire situation we are in and has decided that since no one else is answering the call with full force and determination, that she will do it herself. With Sarah Palin, the rules have changed.

No one knows where this journey will take her. But we all know it will be exciting and productive. Frankly, if all Sarah accomplishes is getting a great number of conservatives elected and helps take back Congress so we can stop Obama and start reversing all of the damage he has done, she will forever be remembered as a patriot.

But Sarah Palin is a unique figure in American politics. She draws huge crowds wherever she goes. And once she has these crowds she doesn’t fill their ears with empty rhetoric like that hopey-changey guy we know. Sarah talks substance and policy. That will prove problematic for the unicorn and rainbow salesman-in-chief!

Look for Sarah to energize the nation. To lead a real movement in this country. She has the Republican base. In fact, latest polls show she has a 76 percent approval rating among all Republicans. And her numbers among independents, and even moderate democrats are growing.

Much like Ronald Reagan, Sarah has the ability to build a strong coalition of common sense Americans who have had their fill of business as usual in Washington. A coalition, that if she chooses, can propel her into the White House in 2012.

By seizing the moment and breaking all of the rules, Sarah Palin will be able to turn the Republican brand around. She can bring it back to it’s solid conservative roots. Sarah can transform the GOP from the K-car of politics to the most dynamic and exciting brand going!

Sarah Palin The Fighter

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 19, 2009

Some inspiring video for a Sunday. Nice way to lead up to Sarah Palin’s much anticipated leadership role in taking America back.

George Soros Group Attacking Sarah Palin Again

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 17, 2009

I’ve written before about some of the connections between the groups attacking Sarah Palin and both George Soros and Barack Obama. They are all intertwined. And as Soros’ group MoveOn.org famously said after the 2004 presidential election, regarding the democrat party: “It’s ours, we paid for it!”

MoveOn came into being during the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal that saw President Clinton impeached for lying under oath during a sexual harassment law suit, as well as suborning perjury when he asked Monica Lewinsky to do the same.

The who idea was to get America to “move on” from the Lewinsky scandal. Since then, the Soros funded group has morphed into just another arm of the democrat party.

I have referred to Soros as a real live version of the James Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, or even a non endearing version of Mike Myers’ Dr Evil. But there is absolutely nothing funny about Soros, and unfortunately, there is no 007 working to stop him. But make no mistake, Soros is just as dangerous as anything to come out of Ian Fleming’s fertile imagination.

As this little primer points out, Soros is an evil man who has spent a lifetime destroying others for his benefit. He survived WWII by being a Nazi collaborator. He made in billions by manipulating currency, and profiting off of others suffering. He is very far left leaning, is most definitely a communist, like Barack Obama.

My friend, the Red Diva has put together a great bit of information on George Soros, a follow the money sort of thing that I’d like to share with all of you. With her permission, of course.

Governor Sarah Palin’s resignation speech of July 3, 2008, along with the reasons she provided, were obviously exactly what the Palin supporters wanted to hear. When the funding report for Palin’s SarahPAC was filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the Anchorage Daily News (ADN) reported that through June 30, the political action fund had received almost $733,000 in donations since being established roughly six months ago. Meg Stapleton, SarahPAC spokesperson, added that since the resignation announcement, another $200,000 has been received.

Following her announcement in early July, Governor Palin began speaking out about the injustice she sees with Mr. Obama’s new policies for America. One of the areas in which the knowledge and wisdom of Sarah Palin should have special attention paid is her expertise in the field of energy. She wrote an op-ed piece which appeared in the Washington Post on July 14, 2009. She correctly pointed out the short-comings of the cap-and-trade bill Mr. Obama has pushed so secretively to the American people using his Democrat – controlled Congress.

On a day when Andree McLeod filed yet another ethics charge (number 20, if you’re counting), CNN is now reporting that MoveOn.org has begun sending e-mails to its members asking them to fund a response ad “blasting Palin’s new Washington Post op-ed. “MoveOn.org is trying to make the supporters of Governor Palin believe that her article was “a marvel of misinformation and outright lies.” Her supporters, of course, will not believe this effort to smear Governor Palin’s wealth of knowledge in this area, but rest assured this is nothing more than another George Soros attack.

George Soros is the “pocket” the money is coming from to fund the Democratic Party attacks on Governor Palin, and he has plenty of it to dole out. MoveOn.org is just one of the many front organizations allowing him to more securely implant Socialism into America. His OSI (Open Society Institute) is the manner he uses to fund all of his puppet organizations, only one of which is the Democratic Party.

He and his “institutes” and “organizations” provided the money that has been used in every effort to belittle Governor Palin. ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, is also behind the voter fraud that occurred during the presidential election of 2008 in various states, and he had the money to dissuade the states involved from pursuing the illegalities in a court of law where they should have been taken for criminal prosecution.

There have been times when it is painfully obvious that George Soros is behind all of these efforts. Such was the case in the CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) attempt to dissuade the positive public opinion of Governor Palin as they sought an FOIA in the Troopergate matter as well as the formal complaint they filed with the Federal Elections Commission in regards to the clothing purchased for her and her family by the Republican National Committee.

Please note I too Have written about Barack Obama’s direct involvement in the troopergate smear, in which Governor Palin was ultimately found innocent of any wrong doing. Of course, the damage was done, as her exoneration didn’t come until after the Presidential election. Obama managed to payoff Alaska Senator Kim Elton with a make work job at the Dept of Interior for his services in trying to hurt Governor Palin. Chicago politics at it’s finest!

The Diva continues:

The previously mentioned ACORN involvement in the Democratic Party, LaRaza and Supreme Court appointee Sotomayer, and this newest MoveOn.org effort are also obvious attempts by George Soros to bring this coup against our Democracy and convert it to Socialism.

The fact that he “owns” the Democratic Party by the very donations that he makes both personally and through his front groups directly involves him in the attempts to ruin, both politically and personally, Governor Sarah Palin. His goal of a Socialist America is directly threatened by her and her supporters from grass-roots America. He knows that as long as she is speaking out, people will listen. He recognizes that the best way to halt her progress is to provide reasons to doubt her veracity.

What he hasn’t counted on is that the American people are not excited about having strings attached to our arms and legs and manipulated to do his bidding. Many of the American people are not, that is, because it does appear that the Democrats in America are willing. So far, they’ve been doing his bidding with what must be considered, by Soros, as disastrous results.

This latest attempt will end the same way.

Part of the methodology George Soros uses behind the scenes is known as the “Cloward – Piven” strategy. Cloward-Piven is a strategy for forcing political change through orchestrated crisis.

First proposed in 1966 by Columbia University political scientists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the initial plan was to bankrupt the welfare system in America and introduce what could be considered as a radical change in replacing it. The main idea is to use a strategy of introducing crises.

The Cloward-Piven approach in this instance called for the welfare rolls to be swamped with new applications which would result in economic collapse leading to political turmoil and ultimately to Socialism.

The welfare crisis that bankrupted New York City in 1975 was the result of the use of this strategy by The National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), founded by African-American militant George Alvin Wiley.

From the NWRO grew new movements such as the Living Wage Movement and the Voting Rights Movement, both of which are reliant upon ACORN, a George Soros front-group, depending heavily upon the financial support from another George Soros front-group, Open Society Institute.

The Cloward-Piven plan uses “aggressive community organizers” to create a crisis of militancy. Intimidated by violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for assistance in handling the “crisis” through carefully orchestrated media campaigns by leftwing journalists to introduce a federal program of income redistribution much like Mr. Obama’s “share the wealth” plan during his presidential campaign.

Although the goal of the Cloward-Piven strategy itself was a Marxist society, George Soros has adopted it to his ideas of Socialism, put it to work in the Democratic Party, and with his careful honing of some of the “rough spots” made it into a much more efficient weapon against the American people than the original developers could have hoped.

This is the strategy George Soros is using against Governor Sarah Palin. It can be seen in the fact that as this article is written, twenty ethics complaints have been filed in Alaska by Alaskans who have been “bought and paid for” by the George Soros-funded and Cloward-Pivens Strategy-driven Alaska Democratic Party. It is the same strategy Soros has used and is using to force Socialism on the American people using one of his puppets, Barack Obama

Red Diva has written more about the money and connections between the Democrat National Committee and the various Alaska democrat operatives who have been steadily attacking Governor Palin since she was announced as a Vice Presidential candidates, and of course, I too have a catalog of blog entries on these underhanded and unethical democrats, as well.

Alaska Democrats Prove Beyond A Shadow Of A Doubt Sarah Palin’s Resignation Was A Genius Move…UPDATED

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 11, 2009

UPDATED!

Rex Butler sighting  Update at the bottom!


You know, at some point you just sit back and realize that some folks are just crazy. Maybe insane!

But I have to say, that in the long run, Sarah Palin’s decision to stand down, fall on her sword for the Alaskan taxpayers, was a genius move. Not only will she save the taxpayers millions of dollars, she will be free of this sort of nonsense that I doubt anyone else in public could withstand, especially with the grace and dignity in which she has comported herself.

As I wrote the other day, democrat hack Zane Henning couldn’t contain his joy when Governor Palin resigned and just had to prove her point and highlight her most self-sacrificing reason for leaving her job: The fact that these out of control democrats are costing, no, scratch that, STEALING millions of dollars and 1000’s of man hours from the Alaska taxpayers with their severe case of Palin Derangement Syndrome.

You can go back and read all about that one.

But today, the loons struck yet again!

This press release came from Palin’s Chief of Staff, Mike Nizich.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

No. 09-174

Governor’s Chief of Staff Releases Statement

July 10, 2009 Fairbanks, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin’s chief of staff, Mike Nizich, issued the following statement today on the occasion of the 19th ethics complaint being filed against the governor or a member of her staff:

“A week ago today, the governor told Alaskans that she was about to step down as governor in large part because of the campaign of harassment against this office, in which the Executive Branch Ethics Act has been repeatedly abused. Incredibly, since then two more ethics complaints have been filed against the governor, including one today.

“Typically, the first action by these complainants has been an illegal one – to announce the filing of the complaints to the news media, in clear violation of the mandatory confidentiality in the law. Unfortunately, unlike the legislative ethics act, there is no provision in the executive ethics act for a complaint to be automatically dismissed when it is publicized prematurely. Regardless of that, it is breathtakingly hypocritical for anyone to violate the ethics law in the very act of making an allegation against the governor.”

“Although the governor would not have thought it possible, the latest complaint rises to a new level of absurdity in alleging that she has been paid for interviews that she has given to the news media. It is amazing to me that anyone could think that, let alone put their name behind it and once again seek to distract state officials and needlessly increase their work load. The state is losing the value of some of its expenditures when public servants are pulled away from important assignments to deal with far-fetched and mean-spirited allegations.”

Governor Palin issued the following statement:

“The only saving grace in this recent episode is that it proves beyond any doubt the significance of the problem Alaska faces in the ‘new normal’ of political discourse. I hope this will be a wake-up call – to legislators, to commentators and to citizens generally – that we need a much more civil and respectful dialogue that focuses on the best interests of the state, rather than the petty resentments of a few.”

Of the ethics complaints against the governor or her staff, 15 have been resolved without any finding of wrongdoing, and four are now pending.

One notices that it is illegal to release any details of an ethics complaint because of confidentiality laws.

Illegal.

Think about that. The first thing these “arbiters of public ethics” do is break the very law they claim they are wanting to uphold!

Of course they use their usual suspects, the “axis of nefariousness”: Huffington Post bloggers Shannyn Moore, Jeanne Devon, (AKMuckraker) Amanda Coyne and Geoffrey Dunn; Alaska’s official DNC blogger Linda Kellen Biegel; and of course, the Anchorage Daily News, to help them break the law.

The complainant here is a fellow named Ray Ward. His other major claim to fame is that he once filed a suit against the Godfather of Soul himself, James Brown. Ward, for those who care, is a lifelong James Brown impersonator.

Sort of reminds you of this one, and this one.

There is most definitely something in the water in Alaska that effects liberals in an adverse way.

I hope once Governor Palin is out of office, that Governor Parnell, and his staff work toward reforming these ethics laws, adding strict punishment, as in jail time, for those who would file frivolous complaints repeatedly or break the confidentiality laws.

The rule of law is a two way street not a play ground for liberal democrats to harass those they disagree with. This technique of course is right out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules. The bible that is evidently given to liberals at birth!

Also right out of the CREW, (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington) playbook, as well. CREW is a George Soros front group and is behind at least one complaint against Governor Palin, that we know of.

And independent of my own work, others have tied Barack Obama, directly to the effort to take Sarah Palin down, both before the election, and most definitely after. This has to be read to be understood.

These people are scared to death of her, and rightly so.

Of course, liberals, being liberals, they overreach. Just like Obama and his cronies are overreaching by trying to ram their agenda down America’s throat, at warp speed, these Alaskan democrats are doing the same overreaching and really overkill with this nonsense.

Every time they file one of these ludicrous “ethics complaints” they simply make Governor Palin’s point for her. They put an exclamation point on the fact that her self sacrifice for Alaska was morally the right thing to do, and something that few other politicians would ever have the integrity to do.

If we didn’t have such a totally worthless media, Sarah Palin would be heralded as a great statesman with a true servant’s heart. Fat chance that will happen with what passes for “reporting” these days.

As an aside, anyone catch Senior Washington Correspondent for Politics Today’s scathing indictment of the media and it’s total efforts to destroy Sarah Palin during the 2008 Presidential election and afterward? This is a fascinating piece of writing.

It deserves a Pulitzer, I wait with breathless anticipation.

One actually feels Sarah Palin’s sadness and disdain in this tweet from her Blackberry at around 9 pm Friday night:

“More precious time, public & private resources wasted today w yet another frivolous false ethics charge, I’ll send presser. So sorry, Alaska.”

I’ve asked this before of my fellow conservatives, and fellow Republicans. When is enough going to be enough? When are we, as a group, going to get serious about this sort of thing, and fight back?

Even if Sarah Palin isn’t your cup of tea, these tactics have been used by democrats on their enemies for decades. Never this aggressively, but used none the less.

At some point these unethical, and immoral, perversions of the political discourse will get around to someone you care about.

As Sean Connery’s .Jim Malone says to Kevin Costner’s Eliot Ness with his dying breath in The Untouchables: :What are you prepared to do!

This would be a good time to leave you with this video, and a call to invest in Sarah Palin by sending a donation to the Alaska Trust Fund to help defray this added burden.

UPDATE:

It seems that Ray Ward’s attorney in this matter is Rex Lamont Butler. Rex Butler is an Obama supporter who is basically acting as Bristol Palin’s dead-beat dad ex-fiance, Levi Johnston’s “agent” while he is negotiating book deals and movies. And it is reported that Butler is also representing Levi’s mom, Sherry Johnston on her 6 felon drug charges.  Also, Butler has admitted he paid for The Johnston family’s trip to New York to hit all of the talk shows recently. Oh, what a tangled web these democrats weave!

Sarah Palin Declares War, The Media Declares Itself Irrelevant, And The Crazies Prove Sarah’s Point!

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 8, 2009

I am continually amazed by the media. And not just the state run media, you know, all of those who have the slobbering love affair with Obama. I mean you kinda expect that. They worked so darned hard to get him elected and want to keep him there. Fend off any challenger, especially one who stands an incredible good chance of beating him.

But the ones that get me are the so-called conservatives. I know much of it has to do with the beltway mentality. The old Washington/New York elite. The ones that don’t get out of the big city and mix with the great unwashed, ever.

Frankly, to me, it’s like an episode of the Twilight Zone!

The normal Americans who have taken time to hear Sarah’s Independence Weekend Speech understood every single word she said. (and yes, to her, the timing so close to Independence Day was symbolic)

It was a call to action.

But…but…but…she QUIT!

Did she?

That’s the meme that seems to be universal among these geniuses.

This is where I start to realize that higher learning is a total waste of time if you have the comprehension level of much of today’s pundits.

Now in the most technical of terms, yeah, Sarah quit. But that says nothing.

Let’s look at where Sarah’s thinking seems to have been.

As I wrote earlier, the clues have been there that something was up, but not knowing what was going on inside her mind, we missed them. It’s obvious that once she toured the nation and spoke to so many people that she was inspired by Americans just as much as they were inspired by her.

Something else that has been very plain from all of Sarah’s speeches to major groups, especially those that get national coverage, is that she is very troubled by what is going on in our nation. Sarah has always been an advocate for energy independence, she’s really the go to guy on that sort of thing. But she is also a big advocate for small government and fiscal responsibility.

With the democrat party trying to ram the most disastrous energy policy one could ever dream up, one that amounts to the largest tax increase ever imposed on mankind, and doesn’t create a drop of energy, there are issues, to say the least.

And of course, Obama and his comrades in Congress are big government hacks on steroids. Obama and the rest of his crew think that government is the end all, be all, to life. That government should control every facet of one’s life. (But not theirs, they’re special) Obama couldn’t care less about our Constitution. From the banks to auto companies (and voiding investor contracts) to regulating people’s pay, to even passing a “special tax” for a handful of people to punish them for excepting pay they legally earned, Obama has our founders spinning in their graves.

Even Hugo Chavez stated that Obama was more left wing than either he, or Fidel Castro!

The really best part? Thanks to Comrade Obama, we actually have more czars than Russia ever did! Well over 30. I won’t list them all, but as a lifelong car guy, as in worked in the business, it is beyond scary that the car czar, the cat who will run General Motors, and maybe Chrysler, has absolutely zero experience in the automotive trade. None, zip, nada! And he’s still just a kid!

Of course, where we have serious constitutional issues here is the fact that by appointing all of these czars, Obama has completely and totally usurped the Senate’s constitutional responsibility of advise and consent. In other words, these czars are elected by no one, and approved by no one, except for Obama himself. Lenin and Stalin would be so proud!

Foreign policy and national security? This guy is Neville Chamberlain wrapped up in Jimmy Carter with a strong dose of naivete thrown in for good measure.

North Korea and Iran are running amuck. Obama has basically resigned himself to the fact that Iran will have nukes, and at time when North Korea is launching missiles everywhere, basically doing R&D that will help them perfect a long range delivery platform, Obama wants to gut the military budget, as all democrats always do, especially missile defense.

Even worse, after the Iranian elections, evidently overseen by ACORN, while young Iranians were being beaten and killed, it took Obama two weeks to come up with anything that even resembled condemnation of the illegitimate regime.

On the other hand, when Honduras has a mad man who was usurping their constitution, trying to set himself up as dictator for life, and the people’s representatives took action, removing him from office, Obama couldn’t get out a statement fast enough in support of the Castro wannabe! Never mind that the next guy the in line of succession had taken power and announced elections as soon as possible to choose a new leader. Obama was in the company of Chavez, the Castro brothers, and the United Nations in their support of lifetime dictators!

“As Commander-In-Chief, Governor Palin is the one we look to for leadership and inspiration while serving and defending the sovereign boundaries of Alaska” Lt General Craig E Campbell, Adjutant General of the Alaska National Guard.

So what does this all have to do with Sarah “quitting?”

Well, to anyone who is paying attention to her, they know that she is of the opinion that someone needs to put Obama in check and fast!

And who else is gonna do it?

Let’s face it, save for a few principled conservatives, the Republican party is full of milquetoast moderates who have no idea how to fight. Or worse yet, actually agree with a lot of Obama’s agenda.

The democrats have a majority in the House, and the way Nancy Pelosi threatens her members, she can get anything passed, especially the bills no one reads, you know, the ones that cost tax payers multiples of trillions of dollars!

And with, I can’t believe I’m saying this, Senator Al Franken, the democrats have a filibuster proof majority in the Senate.

In other words, nothing or no one can stop them from trying to implement their visions of a socialist Utopia.

At least no one in DC.

You hear it in her speeches and see it in her eyes. Sarah is ready to go and take on these issues with gusto. She will be a strong advocate for small government, strong national security, and real energy independence.

It’s also very clear to anyone who even remotely follows the ins and outs of politics in Alaska, that couldn’t happen as long as she remained Governor.

Forget the physical logistics of it all, that’s the least of the problem.

Nope, Alaska is a very strange place right now, politically. Before Sarah became a national figure after being picked by Senator McCain as his running mate, things were relatively tame as politics go. Sarah was hailed for her ability to work with both sides of the aisle. In fact, knowing that she helped take down a bunch of corrupt Republicans, the democrats were very happy to work with her.

Let’s face it, with energy making up most of Alaska’s economy, it made sense for everyone to get together on important legislation. In fact, Sarah’s signature accomplishment, the natural gas pipeline, was passed just one vote shy of unanimous!

Then came McCain and more ominously Obama and his Chicago/Saul Alinsky brand of politics.

The word came down from Washington for the democrats to make Sarah’s life difficult. I’ve already written about Obama’s direct connection to the failed “troopergate” smear. As well as his payoff to Alaska Senator Kim Elton ad nauseum.

On Tuesday, appearing on Greta Van Susteren’s On The Record, Sarah’s attorney Thomas V Van Flein, while speaking about all of the phoney ethics complaints, mentioned that at least one had originated from the lower 48. And he also mentioned the DNC’s official blogger for Alaska, Linda Kellen Biegel, though not by name. Biegel being one of the loons who has devoted their life to attacking Sarah. Biegel is even raising money to supplement her disability payments off of this venture!

In other words, the Saul Alinsky “Rules For Radicals” plan was followed to a tee!

But, the media seems clueless.

If anything, some of the better ones mention the fact that Sarah has personally racked up a legal bill of over $500,000, so far. They portray Palin as a victim, or worse yet, say she’s trying to play the victim. Not that anyone could blame her, but really, does that sound like the Sarahcuda we’ve all watched for years?

What the media totally leaves out, even the “good ones” is the fact that not only does this nonsense cost her personally, it has cost the taxpayers in the state of Alaska 4 times the amount it has cost her!

So far these democrat operatives, and assorted loons have cost the taxpayers $2 million with their nonsense. And believe me, they have dozens of more complaints on deck ready to file!

All of these complaints have come in the last 8 months. It’s pretty easy to figure at that rate, with Sarah having 18 months left to serve, just her being in office would cost the Alaskan people between $6 to $8 million, total!

And that doesn’t factor in the man hours wasted on this mess. Sarah has said that almost 80% of her staff’s time is being taken up dealing with these loons. John Fund, writing in the Wall Street Journal, states that since the election, there have been 150 FOIA requests filed. Those take time and time is money.

Alaska has some very strict ethics laws, ironically championed by Sarah herself. Before Sarah became Governor, there was a lot of corruption in Alaska government. Some had called it the most corrupt ever. Taking a lot of it down is what got her elected in the first place.

But the problem is, for the complainant, there is no cost to file. And just about anything can be complained about. Even better, if you file frivolous or fraudulent claims, there is no punishment.

Now I have heard people say that they should just change the law. Good luck with that. Can you imagine the pushback from the democrats on that? Or the phony headlines? It would never happen as long as Sarah was in office, and might not happen after that.

Now again, for people that have studied Palin, they get why she is upset. This is a woman who has slashed budgets. She put the Governor’s jet on eBay! She reassigned the executive chef because she didn’t think she needed a cook and staff at the Governor’s Mansion. Show me another Governor who doesn’t have a cook!

She even turned down a substantial raise this year to save the state money!

Even better, when she’s working out of the Anchorage office, Sarah actually drives herself to work, in her personal car! And Wasilla to Anchorage is a pretty good tow in the summer, never mind the winter! Most Governors have limos, or beefed up SUV’s and are driven by someone.

So the fact that these loons will cost the taxpayers of Alaska millions upon millions with their personal vendetta is really a bridge to far for Sarah to cross. They have effectively shut down her government with these tactics. At this point, she truly hurts more than she helps, and she knows it.

And is if to put a punctuation mark on the whole thing, Monday one of the crazies actually filed a new “ethics” complaint, totally proving her point!

Even better, this is one that has been filed before and thrown out!

Zane Henning bills himself as a “conservative watchdog”, but he is a DNC plant. And this isn’t Henning’s first at bat against Sarah either. He is also the loon who filed a couple of “ethics complaints” because of the media coverage of Sarah.

As you all know, after the election, Sarah was the hottest interview in town. When she went back to work, the first morning there was a mob of reporters, cameras, and so on waiting for her at her office door. It goes with the territory. Ethics violation filed.

Then horror of horrors, Greta shows up to do an extended interview with Sarah and her family. I mean come on. This was and still is the most popular Republican in the country. An exciting woman who came pretty close to being Vice President.

Add in the exotic state she comes from, and interest was at a fever pitch. Of course people were going to interview her! But Greta sinned because she filmed a segment in Sarah’s office! She also did a spot in the kitchen eating moose chili and took a ride with Todd on the snow machine. If only she would have worn an Arctic Cat jacket, Henning could have filed for that too!

By the way, it is illegal to publicize ethics complaints before they are heard by the personnel board, but these democrat operatives who are worried about the Governor’s ethics, seem to have no issue with violating the ethics rules themselves!

Henning had a statement out immediately announcing his triumph for democracy!

In fact, merely publicizing the complaint is their win. They know this nonsense is going to be thrown out, but thanks to Huffington Post writers Shannyn Moore, Jeanne Devon, and Amanda Coyne, and others there are plenty of headlines! And the state run media picks up on all of them.

To sum it up Sarah was in a no win situation.

Even the great warrior Sun Tzu tells us it isn’t wise to fight battles we can’t win!

Now sure, Sarah could have stuck it out, let the democrat operatives and loons steal tax payer money and state time, millions of dollars that could better be spent on roads, or education, or well, anything but this.

But that ain’t Sarah. In fact it would have been selfish for her to keep the job for her personal or political gain, and she knows it.

By the way, THAT is what baffles the beltway bunch to no end! They are used to politicians who have to be dragged from office!

And as far as Sarah speaking out against Obama from Alaska, are you kidding? These crazies are inventive. They’d find something wrong. Ethics complaints would have been flying!

And come to the lower 48 and help other Republicans?

You must be joking.

She gets hammered every time she even thinks about leaving Alaska. In fact, noted constitutional scholar, and certified whack job, Linda Kellen Biegel (official DNC blogger for Alaska) actually wrote on her blog that she” had Sarah now”, after Sarah’s trip to visit the troops in Kosovo. Her National Guard troops!

Sarah’s crime?

She talked about how great America was and how great her Guard was. To the crazies, that is unconstitutional. Forget that Palin is their Commander-In Chief!

Biegle is still looking to file that one!

And let’s not forget the personal here.

Let’s not forget the unreal attacks on her children. You had Letterman and his disgusting “jokes” but the real sick stuff has come from loons like Andrew Sullivan, Linda Kellen Biegel (official DNC blogger for Alaska) and the various hate bloggers at the Huffington Post. All of them have attacked Sarah’s youngest child, Trig, a special needs child, proving once and for all the depths of depravity liberals will sink to are really bottomless.

Now if Sarah was just going home, that “quitter” label might have some validity.

But again, anyone who watched her Independence Speech, or read the transcript, knows that isn’t in her plans.

The naysayers say she can’t stand the heat, and yet, she’s preparing to come down to the lower 48 and set up shop to take on the issues she cares about. If she’s a lightning rod all of the way up in Alaska, what do you think she will be like down here?

And I can’t stop laughing at all of the pundits who are still clueless about her July 3rd timing. To these people this was nothing more than a “dead day”, something used to hide bad news. Typical beltway Washington/New York City group think. The also poo-poo’ed her because they weren’t invited to the party, just local press.

Funny thing, Sarah actually knocked Michael Jackson coverage off the TV for a while, and the networks as well as the cable newsers couldn’t get to Alaska fast enough to try and score interviews!

Pretty much anything Sarah does publically, and sometimes even privately, is a media event. And she has an uncanny ability to turn negativity into positive. Remember all of the dust up over Letterman? Most of it wasn’t even stirred up by her! It was supporters who took on Dave and his advertisers.

And yet, Sarah was able to use that interest to talk about real issues. She scored interviews with Matt Lauer on NBC and Wolf Blitzer on CNN. They wanted to talk Letterman, but she wanted to talk natural gas pipeline, her signature achievement. And that’s what she did. And she did, at length. She had just signed a deal with Exxon-Mobil and Trans-Canada that would see the largest infrastructure project in history get done, and paid for mostly with private money. You think the TV guys would have been excited to give her time to just talk about energy?

In other words, Sarah will have no problem getting media coverage to talk about whatever she wants to. Even the ones who absolutely hate her will have to cover her.

It still boggles my mind that the media elite don’t get the July 3rd timing though. Those cats need to get out of their world and mingle!

And for those that think all of this is poor strategy, remember, this has already worked for her very well in the past!. Just a little over a year into her job as chair of the AOGCC, Sarah “quit” because she couldn’t get past the protection Governor Murkowski was giving the good old boys in the agency.

So, from OUTSIDE government, she effected huge change! She got a bunch of people fired, fined, indicted, and so on. Mostly Republicans. Then took the Governor’s job!

You really think this gal needs some title or position to get things done?

Really?

Look, Sarah has now given interviews, Meg Stapleton, her spokesperson has given interviews, Sarah’s close friend has weighed in, and so on. The intentions are pretty clear. While Sarah is falling on her sword to save Alaskans further theft by the democrats and loons, and all of the headaches, so her agenda can be forwarded by Sean Parnell, she is also going to go at the democrats and RINOs nationally with full force. Starting with a speech at the Reagan Library on the 8th of August.

In other words, she is taking the fight to them!

This is an upward move, for sure.

And for those that think her political career is over, a USA Today/Gallup poll shows she is fine.

While overall, the numbers may look tough, mainly because 70% of the democrats polled say they wouldn’t vote for her, 17 percent are likely or somewhat likely to vote for her, should she run.. 44% of the independents say the same, while 72 percent of the GOP would vote for her. And 2012 is a long way away. She has plenty of time to win over more supporters.

And Sarah still remains highly popular in the Republican party, some 76 percent approve of her!

And we aren’t factoring in the horrible shape the economy will be in by 2012 if something doesn’t give. Remember all of those “Reagan democrats” that gave Ronnie two landslide elections? We may see a whole lot of “Palin democrats” do the same for her.

By the way, for what it’s worth, 70% of all polled said Sarah’s decision had absolutely no effect on their feelings for her one way or the other.

Now as a conservative who has followed Sarah since she became Governor, and as someone who also pays attention to what regular old conservatives are saying around the country, I can tell you the support for her among them is even more intense, if that is possible!

Money has been pouring in at an unbelievable rate to SarahPAC, according to Stapleton.

For those that follow her on twitter, she has seen those folks more than double in number since Saturday afternoon! At one point as many as 10,000 an hour were joining in. And she was fishin’, not tweeting!

I honestly don’t know what this means, but she has 9000 more people following her, as of this writing, than Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal , and Tim Pawlenty combined!

And her tweets are generally about the work she is doing, not what is on the menu at the local eatery!

Here’s the bottom line, as I see it.

Sarah Palin is a national figure now, and has been since she came home from the trail. As Ann Coulter put it, she is just too large of a figure for Alaska. When John Kerry or John McCain lost their bids for President, they went back to the Senate. If anything, their runs made them smaller. For Sarah, the opposite has happened. She went from being a little known Governor from a far away place, to the absolute star of the Republican party.

Sarah is at a unique point in history, and knows it.

She is at the cusp of a real movement in America.

Let’s face it, the democrat party is destroying any chances of staying in power with their insanity. And frankly, even lifelong Republicans are not impressed with the GOP’s “hey if we were more like the democrats we could win” strategy.

The movement from party identity to independent has never been higher. The state run media loves to say that the number of those calling themselves Republicans is at a all time low, but they leave out the fact that the democrats are in the same boat!

Sarah has said flat out, during her Independence Speech, and in interviews afterward, that she isn’t beholden to party. And that’s true, because she never has been. In fact, the party establishment has never been all that happy, because she doesn’t play the partisan to get things done. And will go after bad Republicans with the same vigor as bad democrats.

Sarah has said she wants to work with others who share her love for America, and her vision, both in and out of government. She has further said that she will work with Republicans, democrats, and people with no party at all.

Right now a lot of folks are still trying to figure her out. But you tell me that her message won’t be music to normal people’s ears?

Most of us that are really into politics tend to see things from a party perspective. Most Americans don’t. Furthermore, most Americans think both parties are worthless, and that most of our problems come from partisan politics. And they have a point!

Honestly, I don’t know if Sarah wants to be President. I’m sure she would love it, but I am not sure if she has that all consuming lust for it. That “I’d sell my soul” kinda deal.

I think for her there is more to life, and anyone who saw her interviews with her hip waders, windblown hair, and no make-up knows that! One of the state run media talking heads commented that Sarah “quit, then went fishing”. Of course for Sarah, fishing means commercial, something she has done for 20 years plus, and fishing means big nets full of salmon, with her doing the same work as the men!

True story, she’s had an ethics complaint because a photo of her holding one of these big fish was used by the state fishing agency in advertisements! (You really think YOU could put up with that sort of stupidity on a daily basis?)

No, I think if Sarah Palin is to ever become President, it will be by popular demand. It will be because like it already is, everywhere she goes people scream at her to run. When she shakes hands and signs autographs people ask her to run. And there are already dozens of Draft Sarah websites, just like there were the draft sites for her to be the VP pick.

Sarah can draw a huge crowd any time anywhere. More than anyone else in politics, save Obama. And as time marches forward I imagine if Obama draws a crowd, it might not be as friendly as he’s used to!

Sarah has 3 ½ years to go across the country giving speeches, promoting her book, talking policy. Helping conservative candidates. And frankly collecting IOUs.

I always compare Sarah to Ronald Reagan, who is one of her heros, and mine as well.. Yes, they are different, but they are also alike. Especially when it comes to core principals. And for those of us that remember Reagan’s loss in 1976, he too was written off by the Rockefeller wing (RINO) of the party, and the media. In fact, if you take out the misogyny, and the over the top attacks on her kids, pretty much everything that is being said about her, was said about Reagan. Almost verbatim, which shows you the left wing and the RINOs aren’t very creative!

Reagan spent from 1976 to 1980 traveling the country, giving speeches and preparing. Sarah has been described by anyone who has worked with her, including well respected DC policy wonks as a disciplined, quick learner. Someone who is intellectually curious, and highly motivated.

Again, I have no idea where we’ll be come 2012. But anyone that thinks Sarah Palin is down and out or “finished” just hasn’t been paying attention! I suspect that whatever she wants to do, she will do and do well.

I know I’d hate to be the one trying to stop the ‘Cuda!

She has only begun to fight!

And with that, I’ll leave you with this great video!

The Face Of Democrat Insanity

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 29, 2009

You know, the definition of insanity is doing the same stupid thing over and over, and expecting different results. With that in mind, some Alaska democrats have earned a lifetime stay in a padded cell.

Folks even remotely knowledgeable about Governor Sarah Palin know all about the epic failures Alaskan democrat bloggers and their operatives have experienced in their attempts to smear the Governor. Currently they are batting 16-0 with their ridiculous “ethics complaints.” 17-0 if you count the failed “troopergate” attempt. Details are here, here, and here.

So what does Alaska’s official DNC blogger, Linda Kellen Biegel, have up her sleeve now? Well, she’s cooking up another ethics complaint, of course!

You might remember all of the commotion this hateful gal caused when she posted a photoshopped image of Governor Palin and her youngest child. It led everyone to ask why is it OK for democrats to attack small children, especially when they are the children of conservatives.

You’d have thought she’d learned her lesson from the fallout David Letterman experienced after his series of insults aimed at the Governor’s 14 year old daughter. But again, we are talking about the clinically insane here.

Biegel, who blogs as the Celtic Diva eventually took the photo down, and now has pages worth of explaining posted. That’s something else democrats are really good at. They will insult you in the most vile ways, and then “apologize” or “explain” things to you. But mostly they’ll just tell you that you aren’t smart enough to understand the nuance of discussing the rape of a 14 year old girl or how photoshopping a picture of a down syndrome child is some sort of high art form.

And of course, all of them band together to express their outrage when called on their hatefulness. Democrats are the do as I say, not as I do party.

As you know, Biegel, who is rapidly becoming a laughing stock in the sane world, used the image of Governor Palin and young Trig Palin as part of a fund raising effort she has ongoing. She is raising funds to file more insane ethics violations complaints, of course, and says so on her blog. Now, she refuses to disclose donors names, and claims this is not a “political fund” so she doesn’t have to follow the law on this sort of thing. Or file the proper paperwork.

Ironic, because she wants to use this money in an effort to “gain more transparency” from Governor Palin.

No really, I’m not making this stuff up!

So what is Alaska’s self appointed “ethics chief” caterwauling about now?

Well, people who keep up with the Governor will tell you that she made a trip this weekend to visit Alaska National Guard troops during a training exercise off the coast, and then spent time at Camp Bondsteel Ferizaj, Kosovo and then visited wounded troops at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.

This is Governor Palin’s second trip abroad to visit her Guard troops. In 2007, not long after she was elected, she traveled to Kuwait and then Germany.

Funny thing, that wasn’t an ethics violation back then. But of course, she wasn’t the odds on favorite to unseat Barack Obama in 2012 either.

At any rate, as Commander-In-Chief of the Alaska National Guard, Sarah Palin was well within the scope of her duties on this trip. And as Maj General Craig Campbell, who accompanied the Governor on the trip pointed out in this interview, Governor Palin takes these duties quite serious.

The issue?

It seems our poor misguided Diva now fancies herself a constitutional scholar. Of course so do these two!

Was able to pull this off of her website:

NEW VIOLATION BY PALIN!!!

Found this on palingates (emphasis mine):
Frank said…

BlackMountain wrote on 06/27/2009 03:27:42 PM:

Something for the Palinbots to think about- Palin violated the US Supreme Court Greer vs. Spock decision which banned partisan political speeches or rallies on military bases. Palin also caused every soldier to violate a military directive that bars service members from attending partisan political speeches either in uniform, on duty, or at any military base/facility.

Isn’t it just a doozie that Palin would violate a US Supreme Court Decision – and top it off with having our soldiers violate military directives!”

Now I won’t even pretend to be a constitutional scholar, even though it seems that pretty much anyone can get away with saying so! But I will claim that I have a reading comprehension at or above the third grade level.

I took a look at Greer v Spock. This is a case from the 1970’s.

Without quoting chapter and verse, here is a synopsis of the case:

“Fort Dix, a federal military reservation devoted primarily to basic training for newly inducted Army personnel, and over which the Government exercises exclusive jurisdiction, permits free civilian access to certain unrestricted areas. However, post regulations ban speeches and demonstrations of a partisan political nature and also prohibit the distribution of literature without prior approval of post headquarters. Pursuant to these regulations, the commanding officer of Fort Dix rejected the request of respondent candidates for President and Vice President to distribute campaign literature and hold a political meeting on the post and the other respondents, who had been evicted on several occasions for distributing literature not previously approved, were barred from reentering the post. Respondents brought suit to enjoin enforcement of these regulations on the ground that they violated the First and Fifth Amendments. The District Court issued an injunction prohibiting the military authorities from interfering with the making of political speeches or the distribution of leaflets in areas of Fort Dix open to the general public, and the Court of Appeals affirmed. “

So basically this case was about the distribution of partisan election materials without prior approval. The case was upheld. It states that a military commander MAY restrict political speech as well as printed material. MAY is the key word here. Maybe it’s too many years pouring over the old NHRA rule book, but one tends to learn what words like “may” and “shall” and “must” mean.

The ruling goes on to leave us with this gem:

“As to the regulation governing the distribution of literature, a military commander may disapprove only those publications that he perceives clearly endanger the loyalty, discipline, or morale of troops on the base under his command, and, while this regulation might in the future be applied irrationally, invidiously, or arbitrarily, none of the respondents even submitted any material for review, and the noncandidate respondents had been excluded from the post because they had previously distributed literature there without attempting to obtain approval.”

Now you can watch Governor Palin’s speech to the troops, but unless you are a complete loon, or a member of the Obama Administration, a Governor thanking her troops for their hard work and sacrifice is hardly “dangerous” to the troops loyalty, discipline or moral! In fact, from the loud cheers she elicited from the troops, I’d say the Governor was a great boost to moral!

So where does this leave us?

Well, as we know, Linda Kellen Biegel is a seriously deranged woman void of all reason or self-restraint. So you can bet she is cooking up a way to file this ethics complaint! Of course, she may not do it herself. She has many surrogates like Andree McLeod or Sondra Tompkins, or Theodore “Chip” Thoma!

But her MO will be the same as always. Before she even files the paperwork, or gives it to a “designated hitter” to file, the details will be all over the internet. All of the various blogs will put it out, and the three hate bloggers from the Huffington Post, Amanda Coyne (whose husband conveniently works at the Anchorage Daily News), Jeanne Devon (AKMuckraker) and Shannyn Moore will most certain have star placement over at Arianna Huffington’s rag.

You know, these people are why we cannot get good and decent men and woman to take part in the democratic process in our country. Just as soon as a real leader emerges, folks like Biegel, and the rest pull out their tattered copies of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” and go to town.

It seems that all liberals are given a copy of the old communist “community organizer” from Chicago’s book, at birth.

So far, these miscreants have cost the state of Alaska around $300,000 and have run up a personal legal tab of around a half million dollars for Governor Palin.

What can you do?

Get involved! This woman is an official blogger for the Democrat National Committee. She is also endorsed by the democrat party of Alaska. And enjoys a premium placement on their official website.

Conservatives 4 Palin has a great list of contacts that you can get in touch with. One can certainly ask them if this sort of economic terrorism is something they really want to endorse. Or for that matter, see it used against them in the future. More and more conservatives are reading Alinsky these days!

You can also help spread the word through friends and on the various blogs you frequent. If nothing else, when these loons try to come out with this “complaint” everyone will already know that it is bogus!

And one thing more, this isn’t just about Governor Palin. These aren’t the only underhanded democrat operatives out there. Even if you aren’t one of Governor Palin’s strong supporters, remember this, if they’ll do this to her, sooner or later, they’ll do it to someone you do care about! This sort of character assassination and economic terrorism is standard operating procedure for the modern democrat party. Just ask David Axlerod or Rahm Emanuel!

This is as good a time as any to draw a line in the sand! Enough is indeed enough!

I’ll leave you with this thought from Pastor Martin Niemöller the German anti-Nazi activist:

“In Germany they first came for the Communists,

and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.

Then they came for the Jews,

and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for the trade unionists,

and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Catholics,

and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.

Then they came for me —

and by that time no one was left to speak up”.

It is a time to choose.

The ‘Cuda Goes To Kosovo

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 27, 2009

In a week that saw Sarah Palin’s youngest child attacked by Alaska’s official Democrat National Committee blogger in an attempt to raise money to fund more personal attacks on the Governor, Palin finds herself pretty busy.

She was on a “secret trip” to a foreign land.

First stop was visiting the troops participating in Northern Edge 2009, Alaska’s largest military training exercise. Governor Palin and her husband first met with Lt. Gen. Dana T. Atkins, Alaskan Command Commander, 11th Air Force; and Rear Admiral Mark A. Vance, USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) Strike Group Commander, before heading out to the USS John C. Stennis.

From there it was a short trip over to the USS Stennis to observe the exercises.

Next stop Camp Bondsteel; Ferizaj, Kosovo

The troops Governor Palin is visiting are members of the Alaska National Guard.

There is some cool raw video of the Governor landing and making some comments. One notes she carries her own gear.

During this stop she quoted Ronald Reagan:

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Given the current situation in America, I’m not sure the Governor could have picked a better Reagan quote to use.

Here is a full version of her speech. At the end she gets a little shot in at Senator John Kerry, who served in Vietnam, much to the delight of the troops. This was a bit of payback for Kerry’s poor attempt of a joke made earlier in the week. Kerry has made a habit out of this sort of thing over the years.

I’m sure detractors will have something to say about all of this, but the fact is, Governor Palin takes her job as Commander-In-Chief of the Alaska National Guard and the Alaska Defense Force very seriously. The Governor made her first trip overseas to visit her troops in 2007, not long after her election. Being a lifelong hunter, she even took time to get in a little weapons training while in Kuwait.

As longtime Guard commander Major General Craig E Campbell pointed out in a September 2008 interview with Fox New’s Greta Van Susteren, Palin is one on the ball C-I-C. Saying that she was one of the best he had served under. That she actually cares about her responsibilities to the Guard.

In addition to the normal duties, Palin makes a point of attending every overseas deployment ceremony, and is at the airport to greet every single returning serviceman and servicewoman.

Alaska’s National Guard is unique, as it is the only state force that is on permanent deployment.

The 176th Wing, of the Alaska Air National Guard trains with and is part of the United States Air Force. They are vital to our air defenses, and are the first line of defense should Russia, North Korea, or China decide they want to become aggressive.

Governor Palin has has shared strategic command of the 49th Missile Defense Battalion.. And also commands the Alaska Defense Force, a federally recognized militia that is part of Homeland Security’s strategic plans. Palin also enjoys a top level of security clearance and receives regular security briefings.

Alaska is home to much of our missile defense systems. Governor Palin has been one of President Barack Obama’s strongest critics as he seeks to make major cuts in our missile defense dollars at the same time North Korea is fueling up long range ICBM’s and threatening nuclear war. North Korea is threatening a missile launch on the 4th of July with Hawaii as the target.

The Governor’s next stop will be Germany.

It’s Time to Take a Stand

It’s Time to Take a Stand

Sarah RNC Convention Pointing

There has been a lot of conjecture about the motivation of the liberals who have launched personal attacks on Governor Sarah Palin. Some have cited guilt quickened by watching Sarah Palin walk the walk and adhere to the conservative values that liberals scorn. Others have cited the bias and misinformation generated by liberal media. I think that both of these are true, but there is also a strong political component to these attacks.

Sarah Palin has been a strong and responsible governor who has managed her state’s resources wisely and upheld strong ethical standards. In fact, she cleaned up the good-old-boys establishment before she ever entered office. Her reimbursement of the State of Alaska for her children’s traveling expenses was well above usual expectations for one in her position. Although she had followed the precedents set by the two previous governors for family travel and the Alaska Personnel Board found no wrongdoing, Governor Palin agreed to pay for 9 trips for her children. Her attorney, Thomas Van Flein, made this remark in an e-mail, “The rules were, and are, being changed in midstream for Governor Palin. However, as noted in the agreement at the time ‘the Governor wants to exceed minimum legal standards.'”

It is known that Obama was directly involved in the “Troopergate” investigation, and it is suspected that Democrat operatives are heavily involved in the attacks and smears against Governor Palin. All you have to do is go online to see them at work. The liberal bloggers daily pollute the Internet with ridicule and outright lies in an effort to belittle and demean Governor Palin. It should be obvious to anyone that the intensity of these efforts demonstrates how much of a threat Sarah Palin is to their status quo.

Hollywood and the late night shows have joined in the radical left’s efforts to belittle this godly woman. After all, it is the celebrities that party in the White House and that raised tons of money for Obama’s campaign. Never in my lifetime have I seen any political figure attacked so intensely on such a personal basis. Not satisfied with their attacks on Governor Palin, they have now turned to demeaning and belittling her children. This has to stop. This is America, and we just don’t allow people to be treated this way, especially someone so undeserving of these attacks as Sarah Palin is.

It is time for those with conscience to stand up and say enough is enough. We won’t put up with character assasination attempts on an outstanding governor and the crude attacks on an ethical, morally upright woman’s children. The protest against David Letterman was just the beginning. No longer can we be silent in the face of such evil. With modern technology, we have the means to register our protests, to boycott when appropriate, and to stand up to politically-motivated personal attacks against Governor Palin and her family. Let’s roll!
