Another Side Of Sarah Palin: Financial Guru

Posted by Gary P Jackson on October 9, 2009

It seems that Sarah Palin has made another positive international splash with her latest Facebook entries. Early Tuesday afternoon Sarah released a strongly worded statement urging President Obama to make the right decision Afghanistan, and pledging to back him up if he did.

Later in the same afternoon, Sarah released an even stronger statement, with a very terse warning concerning our nation’s energy policy (or lack there of) and how years of continued energy mismanagement and counterintuitive policies have put our economy in a very precarious position. So precarious, that nations are openly discussing dropping the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

Her statement on the economy caught the eye of the London Financial Times which in turn caused Reuters to report this:

By Tabassum Zakaria

The Financial Times, the salmon-colored authoritative newspaper that is closely read by traders and other financial types around the world, had an eye-opener for readers this morning.

It wasn’t the front-page, four-column wide headline, “Obama’s critics pounce on falling dollar as fears grow over currency.”

It wasn’t the graphic showing a red downward line over a dollar bill.

The jolt comes at the start of the second paragraph in the top story of the day on the dollar, “Sarah Palin….”

The newspaper, whose articles can move markets, quoted the former Republican vice presidential candidate and ex-Alaska governor from her Facebook post on the need for energy independence. Palin links the dependence on foreign oil and large U.S. deficits to declines in the dollar .

“We can see the effect of this in the price of gold, which hit a record high today in response to fears about the weakened dollar,” Palin wrote.

Palin’s power for using her Facebook page to affect public opinion is not to be taken lightly. Remember “death panels” which turned the healthcare debate into rabid townhall meetings this summer — that phrase emerged from Palin’s Facebook page

Now in all fairness, the folks at the townhall meetings were already very passionate about the health care issue before Sarah condensed the insanity of ObamaCare down to two words, but it’s pretty clear that her ability to cut to the chase on any subject made a huge impact of the national debate over ObamaCare.

You see a lot of pundits that scoff at the notion that Sarah Palin is a force in the national debate using a networking site. They simply don’t understand, or don’t want to understand, the power of Facebook in Sarah’s media strategy.

Was watching Greta last night. She and her guest were discussing the phenomenon that is Sarah Palin, and how she uses Facebook. The one thing that hit me was their complaint that it was “one sided.” In other words, Sarah has her say, but isn’t up for “cross examination.” Of course, like everyone else, they were quick to admit, Sarah is effective using this method.

I guess I see it different than most, especially knowing who one of Sarah’s heros (and mine) is. Sarah is following the path the Great Ronald Reagan took after he lost his 1976 presidential primary bid, updated for the 21st century.

From 1976 to 1980 Reagan was “out in the wilderness.” Reagan, who was very media savvy, having spent a good chunk of his life in Hollywood as well as being a radio pitchman, turned to the radio to get his message out. Reagan gave regular short radio addresses combined with paid and unpaid speaking engagements to keep his message out there.

Social networking websites like Facebook have the same sort of impact today that radio did in Ronald Reagan’s day. People of all ages and economic classes are into networking now.

Sarah’s Facebook page is incredibly dynamic. You can check it any hour day or night and people are constantly posting well wishes, personal stories, and the popular “Sarah 2012!” rallying cry.

As of this writing, Sarah has 920,100 friends on her page, which is open to anyone to view, not just friends. This too changes hourly, as more people join day and night. This is roughly double the number of folks since Sarah resigned as Governor back in July. To put this in perspective, Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, who is also considered a front runner in 2012 had around 7700 Facebook friends the last time I looked, which was about a week ago.

The advantage that Sarah Palin has, that the Gipper didn’t, is almost anything she does becomes a media event. Within minutes of posting something on Facebook, the major media knows about it and reports on it. Doesn’t matter if it’s friendly or hostile media, they still report it, discuss it, and keep her in the spotlight.

A very savvy media plan indeed. Throw in the many paid and unpaid speeches Sarah will be giving between now and 2012, the upcoming book tour, and her pledge to help elect Conservative candidates, of which she has some 120 requests from so far (!) And the strategy looks very solid.

Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that what she posts on Facebook is dead on!

Confirmed: Sarah Palin To Be Keynote Speaker At CLSA Investor’s Forum In Hong Kong

Posted by Gary P Jackson on September 2, 2009

Yes, I know, I am a tad late, but, as is policy, we don’t talk about Sarah Palin’s schedule unless Sarah or her spokeswoman, Meg Stapleton, has verified that Sarah is indeed going somewhere.

There are just too many flaky promoters using Sarah’s name to sell tickets, without a verification from Sarah, who then try to blame her when she doesn’t show at an event she had never committed to in the first place. So we are not going to help them with that scam.

As we reported earlier, Sarah has almost 1100 invitations to speak at events, both paid and unpaid. Her attorney, Robert Bennett, announced this week that she is almost finished writing her book, so is now accepting invitations. Sarah will speak to various groups on a variety of issues that matter to America, and the world.

Sarah will also be speaking on behalf conservative candidates that share her vision for America, as well as for various charities, like those who support special needs children, and the military and their families.

Sarah will be speaking in Hong Kong at the CLSA Investor’s Forum, an annual conference of global investment managers. Previous speakers at the event include President Bill Clinton, Alan Greenspan, and Al Gore. The forum is sponsored by the CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets.

Their company spokeswoman Simone Wheeler said in a statement:

“Our keynote speakers are notable luminaries who often address topics that go beyond traditional finance such as geopolitics,”.

“We just felt it would be a fabulous opportunity for CLSA clients to hear from Mrs. Palin,” Wheeler said, adding that CLSA approached Sarah with the offer.

Those who follow Sarah Palin know she has a lot of foreign trade experience to draw from. Obviously, Palin worked close with the Canadian government to put together her signature achievement, the natural gas pipeline, but she has had many dealings with nations throughout the South Pacific as well as Russia and Canada.

Back in January of this year, as part of the big kick off to Alaska’s 50th birthday celebration, Sarah hosted a large contingent of dignitaries including Sergey Kislyak, the newly appointed Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the United States, who was making his first visit to Alaska.

Ambassador Kislyak proclaimed:

“I am so pleased to be here this weekend. As discussed in my meeting with Governor Palin, it is encouraging to note the similarities between Alaska and the Russian Far East. Our existing commercial connections and the mutually beneficial nature of our professional partnerships can only help provide a measure of stability as, together, we face the global economic challenges that lie ahead.”

Others attending the event were Yuri Gerasin, Consul General of the Russian Federation; Julian Evans, British Consul General; John Mataira, Consul General of New Zealand; Balazs Bokor, Consul General of Hungary; Sten Arne Rosnes, Consul General of Norway; Haryong Lee, Consul General of Korea; Fred Santos, Consul of The Philippines; Mel Knight, Alberta’s Minister of Energy; Marvin Schneider, Alberta’s Executive Director of the U.S. and Americas; and Haijun Wang, Deputy Director General of the Foreign Affairs Office of China’s Heilongjiang Province. Mr. Wang is leading a four-person delegation from Heilongjiang Province, a sister province to Alaska, and China’s northernmost region.

Members of the Alaska consular corps also participating in the weekend events were: Karen Matthias, of Canada; Hideo Fujita, of Japan; Hee-chul Kim, of South Korea; and Jose Luis Cuevas, of Mexico. They will be joined by honorary consuls of the Czech Republic, Poland, Finland, Seychelles, and Norway.

Obviously, we are happy to see that Sarah is starting to accept speaking engagements. This is a very great way for her to get her message out to the world, make a lot of new friends, and build relationships.

It’s a good to remember that many leaders do this. Former Vice President Richard Nixon, after losing to John Kennedy in 1960, went on the speaking circuit and used that to propel him into the White House, and the great Ronald Reagan was a prolific speaker taking many engagements both before he became Governor of California as well as afterward. This helped Reagan become President of the United States, as well.

Below is the press release from the CLSA:

Hong Kong, 31 August 2009 – CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets, Asia’s leading independent brokerage and investment group, will host the former Governor of Alaska and Republican vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, in her first international speaking engagement outside North America.

Palin will address CLSA clients and delegates in a keynote speech at the 16th CLSA Investors’ Forum to be held in Hong Kong from 21-25 September. Palin joins a list of noted global leaders including Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Alan Greenspan who have chosen the CLSA Investors’ Forum as their platform of choice to reach global institutional fund managers and CEO’s of Asia’s leading listed corporations.

CLSA Chairman and CEO Jonathan Slone said: “As the first female governor of Alaska and the youngest person ever elected governor of that state, Palin has broken new ground in US politics and we are delighted that she will make her first visit to Asia to present at the CLSA Investors’ Forum.”

“CLSA consistently sets the benchmark for original and thought-provoking content, and aims to present global political and industry leaders whose policies and platforms have influenced global markets.”

Joining Palin, are more than 40 keynote and specialist speakers including Niall Ferguson, Harvard professor and author of the bestseller The Ascent of Money; Robert Fisk, Middle east correspondent for The Independent and one of the few Western journalists to have interviewed Osama bin Laden; Sir Ken Robinson author of The Element: How finding your passion changes everything; Satyajit Das author of Traders, Guns and Money; David Roche, economic and political analyst; and Marc Faber, investment contrarian and author of Tomorrow’s Gold.

Now in its 16th year, the CLSA Investors’ Forum is Asia’s premier investment conference providing unrivalled corporate access to 1300 global fund managers from 32 countries, representing more than US$10trillion in funds under management. Over five days, they meet with more than 400 CEOs and CIOs of Asia’s leading listed corporations in 2500 group and private meetings. Simultaneously, a seven-track schedule offers over 200 keynote, specialist, CLSA analyst and corporate presentations.

The CLSA Investors’ Forum is CLSA’s annual flagship event and one of six held throughout the year. Participation is by invitation only.

Sarah Palin’s Incredible Star Power Stronger Than Ever

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 31, 2009

Sarah Palin’s status as a superstar is undeniable. She is incredibly popular nationwide. According to the latest report from Mike Allen, over at Politico, Sarah Has almost 1100 invitations to speak at events nationwide.

This week Sarah will begin accepting invitations to those speaking engagements.

As we all know, unscrupulous promoters have been inviting Sarah to events for months, and advertising this, boosting ticket sales, without having any commitment from Sarah whatsoever.

As an old drag racing promoter, I know if we pulled stunts like this, the fans (and the racers themselves) would’ve skinned us alive! Evidently though, this sort of thing is common in the political world.

What is aggravating though, is the fact that these promoters get all kinds of publicity, because of Sarah Palin, and even though they never had any commitment from the Arctic Fox, their ticket sales soar, and when Sarah doesn’t show up they try and blame it on her.

Our policy is to never even talk about speaking gigs unless Sarah herself, or her spokeswoman Meg Stapleton issues a press release about it.

OK, enough of that!

Basically, if Sarah herself doesn’t promote it, it probably isn’t true, and ain’t happening!

Sarah has over 950 offers for paid speaking engagements, many of them are six figure deals. And over 120 politicians have asked her to come and speak on their behalf. I’m sure they all understand the incredible effect she had on Senator Saxby Chambliss’ re-election bid, which went from a dead heat race before Palin came to visit, and turned into a 16 point blowout after Sarah spent one single day addressing huge crowds on his behalf.

Sarah had offers from twenty speaker’s bureaus to represent her and chose the Washington’s Speakers Bureau. This is the group that represents a variety of folks from George and Laura Bush to Bob Woodward and Katie Couric to Alan Greenspan, Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani.

Sarah will be doing both paid speaking engagements as well as unpaid speeches to political and charitable organizations, including groups that support families with special needs children and those who support the military and their families.

I must stress that Sarah has made no commitments whatsoever to any speaking engagements. My best advice to folks who hear that she is speaking somewhere, is to check out her Facebook page. Sarah uses Facebook extensively to communicate with the nation.

It’s also said that Sarah is about 85 percent finished with her book that will be published by HarperCollins and available in the spring of 2010.

Sarah’s lawyer, Robert Bennett, has also compiled a workbook about an inch and a half thick filled with offers for TV and radio shows, and other interesting business opportunities. Sarah will begin going through this, as well.

Sarah Palin has some serious jazz. Since she has been so busy behind the scenes, she has taken to using her Facebook page as a highly effective communications tool. We all know what she was able to do by typing two short paragraphs a few weeks ago!

The growth of supporters on her page has been nothing short of phenomenal.

As I write this Sarah has almost 850,000 people listed as friends on her page. And thousands are joining daily. To put this into perspective, here is what the numbers on Facebook look like for those who as touted as other important Republican politicians:

Mike Huckabee 106,636

Mitt Romney 69,332

Bobby Jindal 67,773

Tim Pawlenty 6,735

>Jeb Bush 2,670

In the last few weeks Sarah has had more new supporters join her, than all of the above, combined, have supporters on their pages.

Sarah is the one Republican who has really mastered using the internet to gain an audience. And what she says gets results. As we have already mentioned, she totally changed the debate on national health care when she spoke of death panels. And when Barack Obama and the state run media attacked her, she calmly retorted with tons of information about those involved with Obama, like Dr Death, Dr Ezekiel Emanuel, and others who would indeed create death panels.

She also encouraged millions to actually read H.R. 3200, the House bill that most represents Obamacare, a 1017 page monstrosity that amounts to the total usurpation of the United States Constitution. And folks have indeed read this bill by the millions. America is not pleased by what they read!

We’ve written a bit about Glenn Beck’s efforts to expose Obama and all of the illegal and unconstitutional Czars Obama has appointed to powerful posts. Sarah noted this as well, and on Wednesday of last week asked all of her Facebook friends to join her in watching Glenn Beck’s Fox News program.

The result? Beck’s show gained over one million new viewers over the previous day, making it the number one news show on cable, beating out ratings giant Bill O’Reilly. And those viewers stayed with Beck throughout the rest of the week.

With the power Sarah Palin has just by posting short notes on Facebook, one can only imagine the effect she will have on the national debate once she hits the road and starts really speaking out against Obama and his tyrannical government!

By God, I almost feel sorry for Obama and his democrat/communist party!

Texas Governor Rick Perry: Sarah Palin Is The Face Of America

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 24, 2009

In a recent wide ranging Wall Street Journal interview with Texas Governor Rick Perry, in which Perry spoke of the need for solid fiscal conservatism in America, he talked about Alaska’s Governor Sarah Palin.

Governor Perry slammed the “mushy, middle of the road” Republicans, what we here call squishes, and spoke of the need for solid conservative principles, like he and Sarah Palin possess,

saying this:

“You may elect me if I am pro-life. You may elect me if I’m pro-family values. But you probably will not elect me if I’m not a proven fiscal conservative.”

When it came to Sarah Palin, Governor Perry was very adamant about his admiration for the Arctic Fox:

“I love Sarah Palin, I love her positions, I think she was a good governor. . . . I want her to be engaged in this rebuilding of the Republican Party. . . . She is substantially more the face of this country than some other people who might want to be the face of the Republican Party. To me she’s the face of America. I mean she’s a hard worker, she didn’t come from money, she didn’t come from privilege, she just worked hard. . . . I have not seen another person who invigorated the Republican base [like she did] with the possible exception of Ronald Reagan in 1976—the speech he made at the Republican Convention. People were looking around and saying, ‘we nominated the wrong dude.'”

Obviously, we agree with Governor Perry!

Sarah Palin is the face of America. She is not part of the NYC/D.C. Beltway elite. Sarah is from a normal American family, with the all American story. She is a self made woman, no one gave her a thing. Sarah achieved everything she has set her sights on in office.

Sarah has become a true force in American politics through her own hard work, and incredible skill. She has shown how much gravitas she brings to the national debate in the last few weeks doing no more than posting simple but effective commentary on her Facebook page.

As you know, Rick Perry will be facing a re-election challenge in 2010 from D.C insider and retiring United States Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. With Perry’s solid record of Reagan conservatism vs Hutchison’s record of squishy RINOism, and her D.C insider mentality, this shouldn’t be much of a contest. As a Texan, I can say absolutely that Rick Perry has been good for Texas!

Sarah Palin has endorsed Governor Perry in his re-election bid.

Sarah Palin, The World’s Greatest: A Tribute

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 17, 2009

Sarah Palin scored a great victory for the American people this past week, while putting Barack Obama and the entire democrat/communist party on the defensive. Obama was even forced to postpone his vacation and attempt to save his liberty and freedom stealing Obamacare fiasco!

While Palin eloquently issued simple, but powerful, statements on the evils of Obamacare, Obama himself held townhall meetings where he had to have planted guests posing as regular Americans to throw him softball questions that he couldn’t even answer correctly.

Obama, who sounded confused, disjointed, and rambling not only failed to counter Sarah Palin’s strong charges, but dug himself a bigger hole with the American people, further destroying the little credibility he has with America’s citizenry.

It was an incredible victory for America, and for Sarah Palin.

Note to the GOP, this is how you defeat Barack Obama’s swift march to communism! You take Obama head on, and you never stop!

The Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto, wrote simply: Palin Wins.

Others singing Sarah’s praises , include Robert A George from NBC”s San Fransisco’s affiliate who cautions the non-believers to take heed, as Sarah Palin is still the GOP’s superstar.

On the heels of all of this, Seth Adam Smith, one of our friends at Conservatives4Palin brings us this great video as a tribute to an amazing woman, Sarah Palin.

Like Shootin’ Moose In A Barrel, Sarah Palin Slaps Barack Obama Down Again Over Death Panels

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 13, 2009

Can you imagine being Barack Obama these days?

I mean here you are only seven and a half months into your one and only term as president and your whole world is crashing down around you. Your signature issue, turning America into some sort of communist utopia, by usurping the constitution through your “health care” plan, is circling the drain.

You have angry Americans who have never been politically active in their lives fired up against you and the rest of your party. You will basically go down in history as the person who destroyed the democrat party. An epic failure.

And then there is this woman who your minions have been trying to destroy for almost a year who has your number, big time!

First she let you and the party have just enough rope and then calmly wrote two words on her Facebook page, “death panels.”

Then she just kicked backed and watched you, the democrats, the RINOs, the media, and well, everybody, go nuts trying to get out of this mess.

Now normal people understand that there won’t literally be death panels.

They also understand, however, that between the various medical boards who will decide what sort of standards and practices will be used, and what procedures will be appropriate for each group, combined with the bean counters, there will be defacto “death panels.”

Every nation that has socialized medicine rations health care. That’s indisputable fact.

But you, Barack Obama, along with your party had to take the bait didn’t you!

Instead of regrouping, you’ve sent Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the rest of the bunch out to call American citizens a “mob” and “Nazis,” which is hilarious, because Nazis were socialists, kinda like modern day democrats!

You even sent out the union thugs from SEIU to attack unarmed dissenters!

But while you were doing all of this, those two little words from Sarah Palin, were turning the debate on it’s ear! Regular folks were hearing “death panels” and going to see what that was all about. They actually started reading the House bill H.R. 3200, all 1017 pages of it, for themselves.

That really got ‘em fired up!

But Mr Obama, you couldn’t let well enough alone. Since you obviously are allergic to the air in Washington, or think you are still campaigning for office, you went running off to Portsmouth, NH for a totally spontaneous and completely unrehearsed “townhall meeting.”

Group photo of participants at Portsmouth, NH townhall event:

Sarah, is in your head for sure and it shows!

Since TOTUS tried to commit suicide on you a few weeks back, you have not been at your best. No one to keep you from saying really stupid stuff like when you told the totally neutral and unbiased Portsmouth crowd that AARP was on board with your devious plans.

AARP was pretty quick to come out and say “not really pal!”

But this was classic! Here you are trying to sell the country on your communist boondoggle:

“UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems”

___Barack Obama

I’m sure plenty of beverages were spewed all over America when they heard that one!

The very best though was when you took a swing and a miss at the ball Palin pitched to you. You actually had to bring up the death panels again! You ever think at some point people might just forget the bad stuff if you quit bringing it up?

You really are making this too easy!

At this point Sarah is just playing with you. I mean it’s like having a cat and a string.

Barack Obama and democrat party “leaders” pictured below:

So from her lakeside home in beautiful Wasilla, Alaska, Sarah has sent you a message via her Facebook page:

Concerning the “Death Panels”

Yesterday President Obama responded to my statement that Democratic health care proposals would lead to rationed care; that the sick, the elderly, and the disabled would suffer the most under such rationing; and that under such a system these “unproductive” members of society could face the prospect of government bureaucrats determining whether they deserve health care.

The President made light of these concerns. He said:

“Let me just be specific about some things that I’ve been hearing lately that we just need to dispose of here. The rumor that’s been circulating a lot lately is this idea that somehow the House of Representatives voted for death panels that will basically pull the plug on grandma because we’ve decided that we don’t, it’s too expensive to let her live anymore….It turns out that I guess this arose out of a provision in one of the House bills that allowed Medicare to reimburse people for consultations about end-of-life care, setting up living wills, the availability of hospice, etc. So the intention of the members of Congress was to give people more information so that they could handle issues of end-of-life care when they’re ready on their own terms. It wasn’t forcing anybody to do anything.”

__Barack Obama

The provision that President Obama refers to is Section 1233 of HR 3200, entitled “Advance Care Planning Consultation.” With all due respect, it’s misleading for the President to describe this section as an entirely voluntary provision that simply increases the information offered to Medicare recipients. The issue is the context in which that information is provided and the coercive effect these consultations will have in that context.

Section 1233 authorizes advanced care planning consultations for senior citizens on Medicare every five years, and more often “if there is a significant change in the health condition of the individual … or upon admission to a skilled nursing facility, a long-term care facility… or a hospice program.” During those consultations, practitioners must explain “the continuum of end-of-life services and supports available, including palliative care and hospice,” and the government benefits available to pay for such services.

Now put this in context. These consultations are authorized whenever a Medicare recipient’s health changes significantly or when they enter a nursing home, and they are part of a bill whose stated purpose is “to reduce the growth in health care spending.” Is it any wonder that senior citizens might view such consultations as attempts to convince them to help reduce health care costs by accepting minimal end-of-life care? As Charles Lane notes in the Washington Post, Section 1233 “addresses compassionate goals in disconcerting proximity to fiscal ones…. If it’s all about alleviating suffering, emotional or physical, what’s it doing in a measure to “bend the curve” on health-care costs?”

As Lane also points out:

Though not mandatory, as some on the right have claimed, the consultations envisioned in Section 1233 aren’t quite “purely voluntary,” as Rep. Sander M. Levin (D-Mich.) asserts. To me, “purely voluntary” means “not unless the patient requests one.” Section 1233, however, lets doctors initiate the chat and gives them an incentive — money — to do so. Indeed, that’s an incentive to insist.

Patients may refuse without penalty, but many will bow to white-coated authority. Once they’re in the meeting, the bill does permit “formulation” of a plug-pulling order right then and there. So when Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) denies that Section 1233 would “place senior citizens in situations where they feel pressured to sign end-of-life directives that they would not otherwise sign,” I don’t think he’s being realistic.

Even columnist Eugene Robinson, a self-described “true believer” who “will almost certainly support” “whatever reform package finally emerges”, agrees that “If the government says it has to control health-care costs and then offers to pay doctors to give advice about hospice care, citizens are not delusional to conclude that the goal is to reduce end-of-life spending.”

So are these usually friendly pundits wrong? Is this all just a “rumor” to be “disposed of”, as President Obama says? Not according to Democratic New York State Senator Ruben Diaz, Chairman of the New York State Senate Aging Committee, who writes:

Section 1233 of House Resolution 3200 puts our senior citizens on a slippery slope and may diminish respect for the inherent dignity of each of their lives…. It is egregious to consider that any senior citizen … should be placed in a situation where he or she would feel pressured to save the government money by dying a little sooner than he or she otherwise would, be required to be counseled about the supposed benefits of killing oneself, or be encouraged to sign any end of life directives that they would not otherwise sign.

Of course, it’s not just this one provision that presents a problem. My original comments concerned statements made by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a health policy advisor to President Obama and the brother of the President’s chief of staff. Dr. Emanuel has written that some medical services should not be guaranteed to those “who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens….An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia.” Dr. Emanuel has also advocated basing medical decisions on a system which “produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated.”

President Obama can try to gloss over the effects of government authorized end-of-life consultations, but the views of one of his top health care advisors are clear enough. It’s all just more evidence that the Democratic legislative proposals will lead to health care rationing, and more evidence that the top-down plans of government bureaucrats will never result in real health care reform.”

Now Mr Obama, Barack, I know being a community organizer must give you a lot of insight or something cool like that, but while you were running around the country campaigning for president on the taxpayers dime, after abandoning your Senate seat, Sarah Palin was actually dealing with a health care crisis in Alaska! Thanks to the federal government, it’s rules, and regulations the poor and elderly had long waits and poor health care.

You see, elderly Medicaid patients were facing those “mythical” death panels daily. Thanks to Palin’s efforts she was able to reduce the Medicaid backlog by 83 % in just two years. An incredible feat.

So Barack Obama, democrats, media, whoever, please keep on quoting Sarah Palin. Keep talking about her. Heck, even make fun of her!

All of you are just pawns on her chess board!

Sarah Palin has your number and it’s going to be a really long 3 years!

Sarah Palin Reduced Medicaid Backlog 83% In Two Years. Saved Senior Citizens From The Horrors Of Government Run Health Care

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 12, 2009

Fresh off of taking the health care debate to a whole new level, and exposing the immorality of it all, Sarah Palin has released some very interesting statistics that prove her bonafides on health care issues.

Released through her Facebook page, Palin lays out how she fought the Alaska Legislature to make sure senior citizens didn’t have to wait for quality health care.

Now obviously this shows that Sarah is someone who gets things done. Someone who actually serves the people. But more importantly, this proves what Sarah and all of those who oppose Obama’s attempt to forcibly destroy the best health care in the world have been saying.

What could be a better predictor of how things would end up with the government running health care?

Yes, there will be health care rationing, that’s what was going on in Alaska until Sarah stepped in. Unfortunately, under Obamacare, there will be no one to intervene on behalf of America’s senior citizens.

You know, this sort of thing is exactly what Sarah was talking about when she used the words “death panels.”

Now of course, the media, the democrat/communists and our RINO friends all blew a gasket over that comment and ran around trying to deal with it. Even Obama was compelled to clumsily try and refute it in his Portsmouth, NH faux townhall event.

These Ivy League brainiacs couldn’t understand what all of us uneducated rubes know instinctively. Now will there LITERALLY be “death panels,” a group of people that an individual will have to stand before and be judged?

Of course not.

These government types aren’t brave enough to face people in person. But there will be a group of “medical advisors” who will make up a board that determines who is eligible, as a group, for certain health care procedures. This group will look at cold hard data, not warm human beings as they decide.

The other problem is money. America is already broke. We owe more money now than we can ever pay back. As this actually starts effecting the government’s ability to function, there will be rationing and long waits for service. It’s inevitable.

Every nation that has socialized medicine rations care. People die quite often waiting for doctors to treat major illnesses. There are plenty of stories of people in nations with socialized care who die of cancer that could have been successfully treated had they gotten early care and diagnosis.

All of these things, and more are what Sarah was talking about when she spoke of the metaphoric “death panels.” These panels are the ones who set up the standards and practices as well as the bean counters who have to stick to a budget.

But enough of that, let’s look at the release from Sarah Palin”s office:


“Contrary to some assertions, Sarah Palin has a strong record supporting Alaskan seniors. For example, Governor Palin successfully obtained approval for a five year extension of a state program that provided monthly cash payments to low-income seniors.

On May 23, 2007, using a rarely invoked emergency regulation, Governor Palin ordered assistance benefits to continue for Alaska’s neediest seniors after the Alaska legislature failed to fund the SeniorCare Program. After her action, the legislature responded, and on July 28, 2007, Governor Palin signed Senate Bill 4 to continue support for low-income Alaskan seniors by adopting the Senior Benefits Program. “This program continues important assistance to Alaska seniors,” Governor Palin said. “I promised that seniors would not go hungry, and we worked with the Alaska Legislature to address this critical need.” It was estimated that 10,700 Alaskan seniors would be able to benefit under the program.

Also under Governor Palin’s tenure, on December 19, 2008, the state stepped in and took over the Mary Conrad Center, an Anchorage nursing home, when the state determined that there was “‘immediate danger to the health, safety or welfare’ of its residents.”

So, with this clear record of support and care for Alaska’s seniors by Governor Palin, what is the current criticism about? According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, prior to Governor Palin’s election in November 2006, in April of 2006, in an effort to control rapidly increasing costs for home health care providers, known as the PCA program, Governor Frank Murkowski’s administration implemented a screening process for Alaska Medicaid eligible persons by using a Level of Care assessment (LOC). The LOC assessment was designed for persons who would otherwise require hospitalization or nursing home care and was intended to help weed out fraud and abuse.

By definition, many of these people were ill, elderly or disabled and thus in need of personal care attendants to assist them. Only registered nurse assessors were allowed to evaluate consumers to determine if they qualified for PCA care. The job of assessing consumers was contracted out, but the State of Alaska DHHS determined that the hired contractor had too much backlog. Notably, under federal Medicaid strictures, the State could not get another private business to bid on the contract. So the State was forced to take over the job in November 2007. However, the State DHHS was unable to eliminate the backlog using its own staff, and the backlog then grew. The Federal DHHS temporarily suspended new admissions to the PCA program pending audit compliance to handle the backlog of existing cases and come up with a plan to speed the assessment process. The suspension has been lifted as of August 12.

Further, Gov. Palin’s FY 2009 budget clearly showed her analysis of the issue as of December 2007, and described both the problem and the solution long before the federal government got involved. The backlog issue was discussed and a plan proposed for improvement.

The graph below shows that under Gov. Palin (2007 and 2008) the backlog problem was dramatically reduced, from 30.9% in 2005 to 4.5% in 2008. Looking at these data, one can conclude that Gov. Palin substantially reduced the outstanding percentage of Medicaid assessments by 83%.


% Not Reviewed

FY 2008 4.5%

FY 2007 4.5%

FY 2006 23.18%

FY 2005 30.9%

What is the lesson in all of this? Even with good intentions, the government generally cannot provide better health care services than the private sector. Beware of complex federal laws purporting to offer government health care. For those who want nationalized medicine, take heed of this lesson.”

More information can be found here.


Time and time again Sarah Palin proves that she has the leadership qualities America is looking for. While the NYC/D.C. Beltway “educated elites” are stuck in a quagmire of mediocrity and confusion, Sarah has already been there, done that, and got the t-shirt from it!

Sarah’s experience with government run health care, and it’s dangerous and disastrous effects on human beings, should serve as a major warning to all. You do not want the government to have anything to do with how you basic needs to quality health care are met. Might as well commit suicide and get it over with.

It still amazes me how the Republican party is tackling this issue. Now granted, there are some sharp folks working behind the scenes crafting real reform, but they aren’t getting themselves heard. For the most part though the message from the Republicans to the democrat/communists is a hearty “slow down.”

Sarah Palin’s message to the democrat/communists is “Not no, but HELL no!”

Sarah Palin Slaps Down Barack Obama Hard On His Government Take Over Of Health Care And Issues A Call To Action We Must All Answer!

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 8, 2009

As is her style, Governor Sarah Palin came out swinging on the health care debate that has turned America on it’s ear, and is destroying the Obama presidency right before his eyes.

Sarah, who has two sets people the democrat/communist party would just as soon let die, takes this very seriously. Obviously, Sarah’s parents Chuck and Sally are older, and ripe for picking off when the rationed health care comes around. And her youngest son, Trig, who has Down Syndrome, is someone the radical left wing is angry at Sarah over the fact that she ever allowed him to be born in the first place!

And if you don’t believe me, just go to any radical left wing hate site like the Huffington Post, Daily Kos, or Democrat Underground. I call them radical the left, but the democrat/communist party, as a whole, has skewed so far left, that these vile hate sites are “mainstream” for that sick political party. These hate sites, and others, have continually attacked Sarah, and Trig himself.

This is Sarah’s statement :

“Statement on the Current Health Care Debate”

“As more Americans delve into the disturbing details of the nationalized health care plan that the current administration is rushing through Congress, our collective jaw is dropping, and we’re saying not just no, but hell no!

The Democrats promise that a government health care system will reduce the cost of health care, but as the economist Thomas Sowell has pointed out, government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s “death panel” so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their “level of productivity in society,” whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.

Health care by definition involves life and death decisions. Human rights and human dignity must be at the center of any health care discussion.

Rep. Michele Bachmann highlighted the Orwellian thinking of the president’s health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the White House chief of staff, in a floor speech to the House of Representatives. I commend her for being a voice for the most precious members of our society, our children and our seniors.

We must step up and engage in this most crucial debate. Nationalizing our health care system is a point of no return for government interference in the lives of its citizens. If we go down this path, there will be no turning back. Ronald Reagan once wrote, “Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.” Let’s stop and think and make our voices heard before it’s too late.

– Sarah Palin”

Rep. Bachmann’s speech can be viewed here.

Sarah mentions some serious heavyweights such as preeminent economist Thomas Sowell, a Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow from the Hoover Institute, as well as our greatest conservative leader, and President, Ronald Reagan. If an American would just study Sowell and Reagan, they would see the right path to get America on track again, and defeat the democrat/communists before they destroy the nation completely.

In fact this video of Ronald Reagan must be taught to every American. It must be taught as a course of study in our schools!

Now, more than ever, I am convinced that Barack Obama and the democrat communist party are absolutely on an insane path to remake America in a way that is no where even close to what America has always been. They want to build an authoritative communist state the likes of which this world has never known. A totalitarian regime where average Americans are nothing more than slaves to the state.

Much has been written about the insane radicals and their vile ideology that Barack Obama has marinated in since birth. Many people have written about these worthless America hating communist troublemakers, so I won’t rehash here. I did cover some of it in my earlier piece “We Are The New Counterculture” but a trip to your favorite search engine will teach you all you need to know about all of Obama’s incredibly radical, dangerous, and anti-American friends.

One of the more dangerous things Obama has done is completely usurp the Constitution and the Senate’s responsibilities of advise and consent. The President can appoint cabinet members and pretty much elevate, or demote any position to cabinet level at his digression. But, all cabinet members must be completely vetted and go through an aggressive confirmation process by the Senate. This is a basic constitutional duty of the Senate, and part of the very ingenious checks and balances system our founders put into the Constitution.

Now Obama has a group of some of the most clinically insane, left wing kooks that ever walked the face of the earth working for him. No way in the world these people even get a Senate hearing, let alone pass one. So Obama’s solution, an unconstitutional one, is to appoint Czars. We have more Czars than Russia had in it’s day. We almost have as many Czars as we have had Presidents, and he’s still adding more!

There are so many absolute nuts involved in this deal that it turns ones stomach. American Thinker has a nice primmer, and Glenn Beck has been running a series on his Fox News show daily on these people. Rather than wear the reader out, I’m just going to ask people to do their own research, as there is plenty out there to learn from!

But to just give you a random idea about these crazies, and the extent of how insane they are, one of these nuts was for putting some sort of chemical in the nation’s water supply that would sterilize the population thus “saving the planet.” Another nut-job wanted to paint the roofs and streets white! One wants animals to have the same constitutional rights as humans!

Now again, I’m not talking about some hippies in a commune, or some ultra radical underground eco-terrorists. These people work for, and are accountable only to, the President of the United States, the most powerful man in the world, who himself is under the delusion that he is accountable to no one!

In other words, these insane left wing malcontents have the ear, the attention, and the interest of the President of the United States. This should give you nightmares, if you can sleep at all!

Sarah mentioned Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel in her statement. This cat is the brother of Obama’s Chief-of-Staff, Rahm Emanuel, nothing more than a fancy thug himself, who has been known to send dead fish to people who he wants to intimidate. But this guy is a teddy bear compared to his brother Ezekiel. Were he alive today, I’m thinking Dr Joseph Mengele might just say something like “Hey Zeek, maybe you need to learn some humanity!”

There is something about the communist that just weirds me out. They are completely soulless. Just cold blooded, unfeeling, uncaring creatures.

Anyway, Dr Zeek is someone that, in the context of the health care debate, may be the most evil man alive. This is a guy who advocates denying health care to old people, disabled people, and other’s deemed unimportant to society. And Dr Zeek is Obama’s point man on the health care legislation. His Czar.

Knowing this makes me sick to my stomach.

Look, “progressives” as they call themselves now, have always been some sick, racist puppies. To the democrat/communist party, Planned Parenthood is the holy church, and abortion the holy sacrament. They derive some very perverse pleasure knowing they can destroy human life at will. Play God, so to speak.

One can only imagine the excitement these devils must be feeling knowing they will be able to play God, not only over the unborn, but every single American, deciding at will, who lives and dies via their death panels. I can hear the corks popping on the champagne bottles now, as they celebrate their power!

And of course, Barack Obama is the absolute sickest. He even supports infanticide. Obama has supported legislation that would allow a doctor to murder a baby who “survived an abortion attempt” or as humans call it, being born! It’s as vile as it gets.

This is a man, when talking about sex ed and his daughters, said he wouldn’t want his girls “punished” with a child. This man, like many crazed dictators, has some serious physiological issues.

This sort of stuff is nothing new to progressives though. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood was a suspected member of the Ku Klux Klan, and a Nazi collaborator. Just like most of those who surround Obama and advise him on the health care issues, Sanger was a leading proponent of eugenics, a really evil science.

In fact, some say it was her work that caught Adolf Hitler’s eye, and even inspired and justified his own Holocaust against the Jewish people, who he found inferior.

You can read more about Margaret Sanger here.

The bottom line on this, is these people are incredibly dangerous, and have absolutely no use for the common man. They are elitists. They think only they can know what is best for you.

Even worse, they really don’t care if the entire nation is against what they want to do, they know better than you ever will, what is right for you. Don’t believe ‘em, just ask ‘em!

And it’s not just Obama and his Chicago street thugs that he brought with him. It’s the entire democrat/communist party. It’s Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. It’s Steny Hoyer and Dick Durbin. It’s Barney Frank, John Conyers, and Charlie Rangel.

The democrat/communist party along with the President of the United States is literally at war with the American people. They are calling normal every day Americans who have never protested a thing in their life, a “mob”, or some sort of Republican hit squad. Never mind that many of these very angry people are registered democrats and independents!

Now this is pathetic on their part but it makes me laugh in lot of ways. I still remember the angry, bordering on violent, protestors from groups like Code Pink who routinely shouted down or physically attacked anyone they disagreed with. When one protested about their barbaric, uncivilized antics, we were screamed at and told it was the ultimate in patriotism to speak “truth to power.” Well, now that these hateful people are in power, it’s a crime against the state to disagree with the Dear Leader!

Even better, you are supposed to spy on your family and friends, and report even their most intimate conversations in disagreement to the White House!

Of course what really makes this ridiculous is the fact that Obama’s one real claim to fame is being a community organizer! Now evidently, the average democrat voter is just clueless, because I’ve had them talk about all of the things these groups do. I guess they think these rent-a-thug enterprises otherwise know as community organizations spend their day planting gardens and cleaning up parks or something. The truth is, these are militant groups that are nothing more than a mob for hire, and generally used to extort something from someone.

We all know that ACORN’s mobs played a huge part in forcing bankers to give loans to people who should have never gotten one, based on their ability to repay them. And ACORN is directly responsible for the mortgage crisis that put our economy in a death spiral in the first place. ACORN also went after the AIG executives recently, actually busing these thugs to the executives’ homes all in an attempt to extort money through intimidation.

Obama’s job at ACORN was to train these rent-a-thugs on the finer points of communist Saul Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals” or, how to intimidate your opponent through mob tactics.

But, now that ordinary everyday Americans, who have never spoken up in their lives are exercising their God given rights, as protected by the Constitution, they are enemies of the state! People who must be stopped at any cost!

I call Obama a communist, because well, he most certainly is. And with their bent, I’ve taken to calling the party, the democrat/communist party, which with their direction, is rather kind. The amount of evil that emits from this group is palpable.

Look, we know on Obama’s night stand he has a very worn, dog eared copy of Alinsky’s “Rules”, you can look on any of these democrat/communist politicians’ night stands and find that. They hand those out at college like ACORN hands out voter registration cards to anyone with a pulse!

I’m pretty sure Obama has the book his soul mate Hugo Chavez gave him a while back, “The Post-American World” written by Fareed Zakaria. as well.

But from Obama’s latest thuggery, I’d bet my bottom dollar he has a mint condition copy of Mein Kamf right there for handy reference as well.

I’m not an expert on pre-war Germany by any stretch of the imagination, but I’ve always been interested in that period of time. Might be because my dad was part of that generation, but WWII, the events that lead up to it, and all the went on around it, have always interested me.

The comparisons to pre-war Nazi Germany, and Obama’s little 7 months in office are staggering. Just the symbolism alone is enough to seal the deal for me!

Of course, the Nazis and the communists , even though enemies in practice, were really the different sides of the same coin. Not a whole lot of difference between socialism and communism when you get right down to it. But both groups have this obsession with symbolism, glorified photos of their Dear Leaders, signage, and the like. If you look at Obama’s symbol for his health care death cult it is straight out of the Nazi party clip art book, just “modernized” for your viewing sensibilities!

More and more Obama is not only adopting the Nazi look, but the Nazi tactics. For those that don’t know, Nazi is a very shortened version of the real name, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, or National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The Nazi’s were simply socialists, no real difference between them and the current democrat/communist party.

Anyway, however you want to slice it, Obama is using Hitler’s play book. He and the leaders of the democrat/communist party have started verbally attacking the American people because they dare to tell them as Sarah puts it, “Not no, but hell no!”

Americans are fed up with the direction Obama is taking the nation and are speaking out en masse.

The Obama thugacracy is blaming all of this on the Republican party, which save for a few brave souls, is pretty useless at this point, and totally out of power. I mean Obama and his democrat/communist party are in total control. They can pass absolutely anything without a single Republican vote. The problem is, they know that many of them will be retired after 2010 by the voting public, provided we have elections in 2010. The American people have had it! So Obama and his thugs are looking to blame Republicans for their failure.

Now one thing Hitler did as he built up his various private armies and groups of brown shirts, was to use the labor union thugs as his enforcers. Enter the Service Employees International Union. (SEIU)

Barack Obama, the thug community organizer that he is, had the audacity to tell his democrat/communist Congress, and the SEIU thugs to “punch back twice as hard” at the American citizens protesting Obama’s radical attempt to destroy the American way of life, a way of life that has endured more than two centuries.

This is the sort of tactic Obama told his campaign people to use during the election when he told his thugs to “get in peoples faces!” You can almost hear Adolf’s sweet voice as he most likely said similar words in the Munich beer halls just before his election!

Pamela Geller has the story of what happened Thursday night in St Louis at a town hall meeting. It was deplorable, and very un-American. The big fat union thugs wearing purple t-shirts with SEIU in yellow, in place of the customary brown shirt more familiar to the Nazis, attacked and severely beat an unarmed black man handing out patriotic material. You know, flags, buttons, and so on.

Kenneth Gladney was jumped by a group of these worthless thugs, beaten to the ground, and then kicked.

I’ve seen Mr Gladney in several Fox TV interviews with his attorney. This is a very typical American. Mild mannered, quiet and reserved. Just a seemingly very nice person. To be singled out, cursed and severely beaten by a group of thugs, sanctioned by the President of the United States, is absolutely unheard of in this nation!

You can read Pamela Geller’s indepth report here.

You can see video of the beating, as well as the Neil Cavuto interview with Mr Gladney here.

The last time something even remotely like this happened in America was on March 5, 1770. Within 6 years, we were fighting a revolution and birthed a new nation.

Look, I know this started out as a report and commentary on Governor Sarah Palin’s very personal take on Obama’s misdeeds. But this issue is so much larger than even Sarah Palin.

We all look to Sarah Palin as our natural leader in the struggle against Obama, his thugs, and communism. Whereas Obama represents tyranny, enslavement to a central government that wants to control your every thought and deed, a vile and distasteful vision to all Americans, Sarah Palin is just the opposite.

Sarah represents everything that is good, and great about America. Her life story is quintessential Americana. A self made woman who literally went from a cabin in the woods to becoming one of the most powerful figures in American politics. Sarah Palin represents liberty and freedom. Sarah Palin represents a deep love for America that all true Americans have. She also represents a deep love for the rule of law, and our most sacred political document, the Constitution. A document that is the envy of the world!

It’s not by accident that Sarah was the first Governor in the nation to sign into law a statute affirming the sovereignty of her state under the 10th Amendment of the Constitution. Sarah clearly understands the vision our founding fathers had of a small weak central government, with a strong network of sovereign states that were mostly left alone to govern their own citizens as they saw fit. The main purpose of the united part of the United States was for the mutual benefit of all of the several states when it came to international trade and national defense as well as being a referee in case of disputes between the several states.

In short, Sarah is a Federalist, a constructionist. Someone who understands just how wise our founders were, and how the progressive movement’s century long move toward a centralized communist government is wrong, and has done grave damage to the nation, it’s people, and it’s prosperity.

But as I say often, Sarah Palin is not a mythical savior. Sarah is possibly one of the greatest leaders in our nation’s history. Many millions most certainly feel very strongly she is. But Sarah is still a mortal. Unlike those who drank the hopenchange brand of Kool-Aid who think Obama is some sort of messiah, I think Sarah’s supporters understand that she is human. But she is a very special human, made from the greatest stock on earth, the American Spirit!

So, instead of sitting around and waiting for Sarah to come in and save us, for her to do all of heavy lifting, it’s up to all of us, the everyday American to take the inspiration this remarkable woman gives us all, and get off the couch and into the game!

Look, for those that don’t know, SEIU and ACORN are joined at the hip. They even share more than a few office buildings around the country and that mysterious little converted funeral home at 1024 Elysian Fields in New Orleans. Here is an interesting read if you don’t already know about these thugs.

Like Hitler, Obama will use the ACORN and SEIU thugs to do his dirty work. They will be his brown shirts until he can build that private army he talked about during the election. An army, as he put it, “as powerful and well funded as the military.”

One thing we have to be mindful of is Hitler’s tactics. Think about what Obama has done. He has openly sent a bunch of thugs to attack unarmed American citizens. Now Americans, as a whole, are pretty well armed. Most gun owners understand the real reason why our founders wanted to make sure EVERY American, with very few exceptions, was armed.

Our founders had just fought a revolution where the British had attempted to confiscate all weapons before the uprising. Why do you think the democrat/communists have REALLY been trying to unarm the American public for the last 100 years?

Anyway, our founders knew if the people were as well armed as the government, the government would behave!

As Thomas Jefferson said:

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny, when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

One thing you must be very cautious of, Obama, like Hitler, is devious and evil. History buffs know of the famous Reichstag Fire in Germany. History tells us that was a put-up job. Hitler had the Parliament burned and blamed it on the opposition. He used this event to pretty much install himself as dictator for life.

We all know Obama’s love for despots around the world, and I am certain in his dreams he sees himself as Dear Leader for life, ruling over his communist utopia. So as much as some may want to show these SEIU and ACORN thugs a thing or two with the business end of your favorite side arm, resist it with all of your might. We don’t need to give Obama a chance to set himself up as King!

If the time ever comes, we’ll all know when. By then saving the nation will be a lot less important than just starting over with the adults in charge.

So, when you go to the rallies, the tea parties, and the town halls, take friends, and take cameras. Take plenty of video and document everything. Every time you see a purple-shirted SEIU thug, or a red-shirted ACORN thug, make sure their every breath is documented by multiple cameras. Hopefully they will have the good sense to behave. But if not, you will have it all on tape.

Probably a good idea to have the local police on speed dial as well!

But don’t give Obama the satisfaction of his very own Reichstag Fire!

Do, however, get involved in absolutely any and every way you can to stop Obama, and the entire democrat/communist party. Get ready to work harder than you ever have in your life to put solid Ronald Reagan/Sarah Palin conservatives into every seat that is up for election, not only nationally, but locally as well. If a guy or gal is running for dog catcher and can’t quote Reagan at length, go find someone else!

That’s how we win this, and that’s how we take the country back!

It’s a time to choose liberty and freedom. We can sleep when we are dead!

In conclusion, I do not condone violence, but I think this quote from Thomas Jefferson sums it all up quite nicely:

“God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quite under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty….

And what country can preserve it’s liberties, if it’s rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

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!

Sarah Palin Inspires African Women To Run For President

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 13, 2009

Filed under news the state run media doesn’t want you to know:

According to the website Africa Matata, Miss Malawi, Perth Msiska has given up her crown to pursue a career in politics. She cites Sarah palin as her inspiration. As we all know, besides being a state championship winning basketball player, and marathon runner, Governor Palin put herself through college with the scholarships she earned competing in beauty pageants.

It is also reported that Malawian President, Bingu wa Mutharika was also inspired by John McCain when he picked Joyce Banda as his running mate.

Even better, Vice President Banda the first female Veep in Malawi’s history, will look to run as her party’s Presidential candidate in 2013.

It’s not surprising that Sarah Palin has inspired millions upon millions of Americans, but her effect as an inspirational leader world wide shouldn’t be forgotten.

Even liberals like former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown are saying positive things about Governor Palin. And liberal icon Camille Paglia has written in praise of Palin almost from the beginning of Sarah’s entrance onto the big stage.

Now that Governor Palin will be soon free of the democrat operatives who are costing Alaska taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars by filing their bogus harassment “ethics complaints” against her, look for her to be a serious player on the world stage.

Governor Palin has already stated she will be touring the nation speaking to crowds about conservative principles and supporting candidates that adhere to those principles. She has said she will support all who share her love for America, liberty, and freedom.

As a side note, no matter how much CNN tried to make a huge deal out of Barack Obama’s recent trip to Ghana, the Associated Press reports that few actually bothered to go and see Mr Hope and Change for themselves!
