Breaking: Sarah Palin does a robo-call for Ted Cruz

Posted by Roderic Deane on May 20, 2012

I picked up the phone and, lo and behold, it was Governor Sarah Palin making a robo-call for Ted Cruz in Texas. If I’d had let it go to voicemail, I could have recorded it for you.

Folks, she’s engaging. And that’s a good thing!

Vetting a VP candidate…by A.B. Culvahouse

Posted by Roderic Deane on May 16, 2012

Excellent article by the man who vetted Sarah Palin:

A short list of five to 15 leading Americans soon will be notified that the presumptive Republican nominee for president believes they are serious contenders to be his running mate. They will be asked for their agreement to join him on the GOP ticket if chosen, and in the meantime, to submit to a most intrusive and far-reaching vetting by lawyers and advisers working for the campaign. No other candidate, not even the presidential nominee himself, is subjected to the same scrutiny.

I have been a lawyer on both sides of the Republican vice-presidential vetting process. I helped potential nominees navigate the vetting gauntlet in four elections, starting in 1976, and I had the honor of doing the vetting on behalf of John McCain’s 2008 campaign. For those of you who’ve managed to steer clear of the revisionist HBO movie about that campaign, I led the team that vetted Sarah Palin, apparently the five most newsworthy days of my life.

[–]

The vetting of Sarah Palin was no less rigorous, just compressed. She was a late addition to the short list, catapulted into contention by the campaign’s calculus that a woman would broaden the ticket’s appeal. Our team of lawyers churned out the expected detailed written vetting report—only we packed eight weeks of research into less than one. We pulled information from Alaska-centric websites, including her local critics’ blogs and copies of Wasilla church sermons.

Gov. Palin in Seoul: ‘You can trust freedom, not centralized government’

Posted by joshpainter on October 12, 2011

*
In South Korea Tuesday, Sarah Palin called for regime change in North Korea, said she’s looking forward to the day the U.S. has a woman president, denounced crony capitalism and big government the world over and praised technology as a liberating force which empowers individuals.

In a wide-ranging speech to a forum in Seoul, the conservative commentator accused China of seeking to use its military influence in regional disputes and said she looked forward to the ousting of North Korea’s regime.

Palin cited the Arab Spring as proof that new information technology was playing an “enormous role” in spreading cries for freedom.

“Technology means individuals have been empowered in ways they have never been empowered before in our entire history,” she told the World Knowledge Forum hosted by Maeil Business Newspaper.

“Technology has taken power away from central authorities and provided individuals with more choices. We are no longer living in a top-down world. Now we are living in a bottom-up world, from entertainment and information to education.”

But governments seemed to be going in the opposite direction, with the European Union in Brussels “dictating terms for the member states across the continent”, she said.

In China, “where there have been some movements towards reform, the Communist Party still dictates to the Chinese what they can and what they can’t do in so many respects”, she added.

Even in the United States, the political elite “believe we just can’t get along without them”, Palin charged.

“Government officials like to push this idea because it gives them the opportunity to pick the economic winners and losers in our system… in other words, it gives them ultimate economic power.

“I just call it crony capitalism.”

The former governor and Republican vice presidential candidate also voiced her support for the Free Trade Agreement between the United States and South Korea:

“I support what is being debated right now in Washington, D.C., with the FTA with South Korea because we are natural trading partners from automobiles to agricultural products.”

“What government can do is to open the gate and then get out of the way and let the people trade, let the markets dictate what should be traded and much of the terms, and I do look forward to seeing that outcome from the U.S. and Korea free- trade agreement.”

On North Korea:

“The first victims of his regime are his own people. That is so inherently unfair and unjust that I look forward to this entire regime being able to be rebuilt, South Korea being able to assist North Korea when that regime is finally ousted.”

On spending on national security in the U.S.

“I want to make sure that we have no debt, but that we have enough money to spend on national security measures in order to help create a more peaceful and prosperous world for all of you, not just the U.S.”

Though she did not discuss her political future and why she declined to run for president next year, Gov. Palin predicted that there “will be a woman president of the United States of America, and I look forward to that day”.

The aftermath of Sarah saying NO

Posted by Roderic Deane on October 9, 2011

Monologue from today’s Roderic Deane Show:

It’s been a tough week for Palinistas out there, including me. With the exception of a few concerning comments Sarah made in a recent conversation with Greta van Susteren, I still expected her to jump in to the race for the GOP nomination. Instead, she announced on Wednesday that she will not be seeking the GOP nomination, nor would she mount a challenge on a third-party ticket.

In her speech to Liberty University yesterday, she said:

After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.

She went on to say:

From the bottom of my heart I thank those who have supported me and defended my record throughout the years, and encouraged me to run for President. Know that by working together we can bring this country back – and as I’ve always said, one doesn’t need a title to help do it.

So, does that end it?

For me, the answer is NO. Sarah released her statement and, at the very same time, joined Mark Levin at the very beginning of his radio show. During her conversation with Mark, she stressed that fact that she will be out there helping common-sense conservatives get elected and doing everything she can to put an end to the Obama administration. I think that deserves at least one, big fist-pump, don’t you?

Entertaining the thought of running for the Presidency has to be a daunting thing, especially for someone who views public service with “a servant’s heart”. I think we can all attest to the fact that blind ambition fueled the rise of Barack Obama. What’s chilling is the fact that he pursued the Presidency after voting “present” on many, many issues. Now that he’s in the Oval Office, what has he done?

Well, for starters, he gave Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Timothy Geithner free reign to write the trillion-dollar stimulus bill, which, I might add, had absolutely no effect on our economy. After that, he abdicated his leadership and allowed Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to write his own signature legislation, which we now call Obamacare. Now, he expects Congress to pass his jobs bill, which is just more of the same spend, spend, spend mentality!

Today, as we witness the protests on Wall Street and other financial centers throughout the United States, we must keep in mind one thing. Barack Obama’s roots are as a “community organizer”, or, better put, a community agitator. He has purposely supported anti-capitalist protests by giving sympathy to their cause, suggesting that their grievances are legitimate. By so doing, he has supports anti-American sentiment in our own country.

The irony of these protests comes with the death of Steve Jobs, founder and visionary leader of Apple Computers. Steve Jobs exemplified the power of free-market capitalism to transform our lives and yet the protesters want to limit an entrepreneur’s ability to succeed. Their stated goal is to strip the entrepreneur of the rewards of his or her success by levying a heavy tax on a company’s profits. In essence, they want to eliminate the entrepreneur’s motivation to succeed. This is complete madness!

To give these protesters a little history, Apple Computers was started in the garage of Steve Jobs with the help of Steve Wozniak. Together, these two individuals revolutionized the computer industry in ways that historians will look back on in amazement. As of the latest reports on the company, Apple Computers employs 49,400 people, 12,000 at their corporate headquarters alone.

If anything, we should be cheering on the entrepreneur. They are the ones who will bring our economy out of this terrible slump, not government.

Having said that, I think we need to be supportive of Sarah Palin’s decision not to seek the office of the Presidency. There has been a lot of caterwauling by a number of her supporters since her decision was announced. The has to stop. As Sarah said yesterday:

“You trust me to be leader of the free world but you don’t trust my decision? Come on!”

We need to trust Sarah now, as we have in the past. I have no doubt that she’s got some plans up her sleeve that will make us all proud.

…and that’s my two-cents worth for the week.

Defining a servant’s heart

Posted by Roderic Deane on October 2, 2011

What follows is the monologue from today’s The Roderic Deane Show:

Tell me, my friends, how do you define a servant’s heart? More importantly, how will we know when we see it?

For the record, I don’t currently entertain the thought of elective office. It’s not that I wouldn’t be willing to govern as a true servant for my constituents, it’s just that I’ve chosen a different path in life. I do try and carry a servant’s thoughts with me as I go about my job. The goal is to make things work for my clients and to do so in an ethical and honest fashion. In fact, I hold honesty as the very first ideal in my professional life. I figure that honesty will supply all the ethics I need.

But what about those who choose to govern? What standards should we expect of them?

From my standpoint, first and foremost should be honesty. As a constituent, I never want to be “spun”. I want the unvarnished truth about whatever circumstances an official was elected to deal with. If stuff ain’t workin’, tell me! I’m a big boy, but I can only deal with the truth. I need to know the facts to advise my response, not bullshit, sorry, I meant spin.

Secondly, I expect anyone I vote for to adhere to the highest standard of ethics. I expect that person to rise above whatever “laws” have been prescribed for their particular office. In fact, I expect a Biblical interpretation of ethics. A STRICT Biblical interpretation! And no, I’m not talking about “an eye for an eye” kind of stuff. I’m talking about the Golden Rule “Treat others as you want to be treated” kinda stuff.

Why do I say that? Because the laws of man can never be depended on to guide a person’s soul. A Biblical interpretation can, as can a servants heart.

Take for instance the ethics laws in the State of Texas. They don’t have a lot of restrictions, outside of prohibiting outright fraud. The intent of the laws that are there can be circumvented rather easily.The State of Alaska, however, has taken ethics to a whole new level. It doesn’t leave nearly as much to interpretation, nor should it. We know what can happen when one doesn’t take a Biblical view of ethics and depends on man’s law. You’re only get people to go with the minimum requirements.

Did you ever wonder why we have so many attorneys in this country? We’ve had to construct a myriad of laws to, basically, guide man’s ethics. The thought of a servant’s heart seems a distant memory to most. Remember when a handshake used to count so much? What about man’s word, a promise? I guess it depends on what the meaning of the word word is.

Sarah is pointing us toward something when she calls on the need for a servant’s heart. I think that the Washington elites can’t see it because they’ve invested themselves completely in the so-called “rule of law”. And yes, we are a country that believes in the “rule of law”. I’m going to up the ante a bit, however. I really think that the majority of this country believes in the “rule of God’s law”, not man’s law. Man’s law can be written to the advantage of a small group of individuals and we see that all the time. If my attorney is bigger and better than yours, I’ll win in an interpretation of man’s law. But do we need some high-priced lawyer to help us define God’s law?

In the past, who did we depend on to help us understand God’s law? The answer is simple. We depended on our spiritual counselor, our preacher or our pastor. But even with the very best of intentions, we’ve seen where the bureaucracy of a church can thwart the rule of God’s law. Look no further than the Catholic Church and their terrible lack of an immediate response to all the pedofiles in their midst. Look no further than the scandals that have continued to rock the world of televangelism. Look at the terrible consequences that have been wrought on the world by the medieval tenets of sharia law.

We have always governed ourselves as a Judeo-Christian nation and the vast majority of Americans still believe we should continue to. I would venture to say that we have supplanted the term “conservative” for “Judeo-Christian” in these politically-correct times. We’ve lost sight of our roots and run from them for fear of persecution. Many now run for fear of being persecuted due to their “conservative” beliefs. It’s no different than Peter denying knowing Jesus three times. The good news is that Peter recognized what he had done and took himself to task for it. Now, too, we see many Americans awakening to what they have denied in the past. We’re seeing it in the Tea Party today. Why do you think that so many people are now telling pollsters that their support of the Tea Party has waned? It’s because they fear persecution, it’s not because they don’t still believe in what the Tea Party stands for.

That notion was borne out in the November, 2010 elections and it’s going to happen again in 2012. The difference will be who we choose to lead the Republican ticket in the Presidential election. We need someone to embody the principles of the Tea Party, of conservatives and of Judeo-Christian belief. We need someone that understands how much more important God’s law is to our growing worship of man’s law. We need someone with a true servant’s heart to lead us back to our roots.

If we try to define what “a servant’s heart” is, we must first look at the Bible. A “servant” is one who does his master’s bidding. In Judeo-Christian belief, we have but one master in this life and that is Almighty God. Maybe now you can begin to understand why Sarah Palin, Judeo-Christians, the Tea Party and conservatives are all intertwined. It’s because they all implicitly understand the meaning of “a servant’s heart”. It also why those who oppose these groups are so afraid. They know fully well that only God’s law is a threat to man’s law and their cling to power.

…and that’s my two-cents worth for the week.

Palin: L’shanah tovah! Happy New Year!

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on September 28, 2011

Posted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page earlier this evening:

We wish our friends in the Jewish community a shanah tovah u’metukah – a happy and sweet new year!

 Rosh Hashanah is the time for new beginnings and, for me personally, I’ve always considered the new season as providing an opportunity for clear thinking about priorities.

God bless our Jewish friends, and may Israel be blessed with peace and strength as she continues to innovate and prosper and befriend our own great nation.

May this new year be filled with manifestations of our respect for our ally Israel and our nation’s Judeo-Christian foundations.

In the aftermath of a blockbuster Sunday show…

Posted by Roderic Deane on September 26, 2011

As I reflect back on the show from yesterday, I want to let you know what happened during the show and provide my observations of the aftermath. I have to tell you, it is absolutely maddening when something doesn’t go right during a live broadcast, which happened at the start of the show. Of all days to experience an issue, yesterday was not the day I wanted to deal with Murphy’s Law!

As I started the show and began my monologue, I could hear a repeat of what I was saying that followed with a ~10 second delay. At first, I worried that this feedback was being broadcast. I then reasoned that it couldn’t be, because my call-screener was not alerting me to anything wrong.

As I focused on my monologue, it was hard to fight the urge to trouble-shoot the issue. I told myself that I had a live audience and had to keep forging ahead, despite the fact that I was hearing my own words repeated back to me in my headset. When I ended my monologue and brought Ivan on the show, it gave me a brief respite while he talked so I could try to understand what was happening. I thought that one of my audio feeds must have been causing the problem and MUTED my broadcast feed, thinking it was something other than what it was! Thank God Ivan was on site. He rushed into the studio and told me he couldn’t hear anything.

I took my feed off mute and stumbled into a conversation with Peter Singleton, after having given my introduction while muted. Sheesh! After I greeted Peter and gave him an opportunity to speak, I noticed something. I had opened up a separate browser window in addition to my broadcast page. Unbeknownst to me, when the show started, that other browser window, which was on the show page, started playing my broadcast, with a 10 second delay. No one could hear it except me!

When I realized what I’d done, I immediately closed that window and, to my relief, the feedback stopped! I kept moving forward in my conversation with Peter Singleton, thinking that the rest of the show would go off without a hitch. Au Contaire!

The show continued to move forward on schedule, leading up to the second biggest “get” I’ve ever had (Jedediah Bila was the first): an interview with Stephen Bannon! I was really looking forward to the conversation, but as the show approached the time of his call-in, Murphy’s Law visited me again: he wasn’t there! I felt terrible keeping Adrienne Ross on the line because I knew she still wasn’t feeling up to par. On the fly, I decided to thank Adrienne and end my conversation with her. The problem was, my next guest wasn’t there!

I segued into my recorded conversation with O.P. Ditch. O.P., if you’re reading this, you saved my bacon! After I started the audio clip, I sent an email to Stephen Bannon. My message was simple: “Stephen, waiting for you to call in to the Roderic Deane Show at 877-478-5783”.

I had to split my audio file with O.P. into two parts, thanks to the constraints of BlogTalkRadio. By the time I had found Stephen’s email address and sent him an email, the first clip of my conversation with O.P. was winding down. I provided a brief introduction to my second clip with O.P. and started that audio file.

To my never-ending relief, I noticed a new call on the line and I waited to be alerted by Ivan, my call-screener. As I watched the monitor, all of a sudden the notice came up: Stephen is on!

I now had to figure out how to end the audio clip that was playing. As Stephen waited in the “wings”, so to speak, we both listened to my conversation with O.P. When the audio clip provided an appropriate break, I cut it off and sequed into an introduction of Stephen Bannon, after offering an apology to O.P.

Stephen delivered a great conversation for the rest of the show. As I looked at the time, I thanked Stephen for calling in and went into my lead-out routine. The show ended with 30 seconds to spare.

Epilogue:
After the show was over, I knew I wasn’t done. I had to contend with the “technical issues” at the start of the show. Live listeners are great, but the beauty of BlogTalkRadio is having your broadcast available to anyone at the time of their choosing. I knew I had to “fix” the start of the show.

I went back to my studio and re-recorded the entire start of the show, including my monologue. I copied the newly-recorded start into the downloaded show, replacing the live version. After finishing, I uploaded the new audio file to BlogTalkRadio in the hopes that archive listeners would not have to experience all my technical difficulties.

By 4:00pm, 3 hours after the show ended, the new audio was available on BlogTalkRadio. I emailed the audio file to Stephen Bannon’s technical team, at his request. At that moment, I suddenly started feeling exhausted, having FINALLY completed the day of my blockbuster show. But I wasn’t finished. I had promised Stephen Bannon that I would listen to his radio broadcast later that night.

I have to be honest. I did stay awake long enough to listen to Stephen Bannon’s show, but I don’t remember anything about it. As soon as it was over, I turned off my laptop and went to bed. It was 9:30pm Central Time.

What a day!

Palin: Threatens to Sue ‘Rogue’ Publisher Random House

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on September 26, 2011

Former Vice Presidential nominee and past Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin may finally be sick and tired of the libelous accusations that have been printed in a book by Joe McGinniss entitled “The Rogue”.  It seems that Andrew Brietbart recently brought to light an email in which McGinniss admits “Legal review of my manuscript is underway and here’s my problem: no one has ever offered documentation of any of the lurid stories about the Palins.”  In other words, McGinniss knowingly submitted for publication to Random House “tall tales” that were not substantiated.

From http://www.abcnews.com:

ABC News’ Jon Karl and Shushannah Walshe report:

Sarah Palin’s family attorney John Tiemessen has written a letter to Maya Mavjee, the publisher of the Crown Publishing Group, a division of Random House, that Palin may sue her, the company, and the book’s author Joe McGinniss “for knowingly publishing false statements” in his book released last week, “The Rogue,” ABC News has learned.

READ THE ENTIRE LETTER HERE

The book was widely panned by critics for using unnamed sources to criticize Palin and her family. Tiemessen cites an email they have access to in which McGinniss writes that attorneys from Crown Publishing told him “nothing I can cite other than my own reporting rises above the level of tawdry gossip. The proof is always just around the corner, but that is a corner nobody has been able to turn” and that McGinniss “ran out of time” to sufficiently source the book.  More

History repeats itself as latest anti-Palin books bomb

Posted by joshpainter on September 26, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
The left’s latest one-two literary punch against Sarah Palin is proving to be an ineffective combination that misses its mark. Disgraced author Joe McGinness’ The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin and Caribou Country clown Levi Johnston’s Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs were both released on Tuesday, but the book-buying public apparently couldn’t care less. At the time of this writing, McGinness’ hardcover hit job is sales-ranked #74 by Amazon and #208 at Barnes & Noble. Johnston’s joke of a book fares even worse, at #888 in sales at Amazon and #20,049 at Barnes & Noble.

It’s not like both books and their respective authors suffered any from lack of promotion by their publishers and left wing advocate bloggers. Random House/Crown conducted a major roll out campaign for The Rogue, lining up appearances for McGinnis to promote his book on NBC’s “Today Show” and ABC’s “The View,” among other small screen venues. Cartoonist Garry Trudeau even signed on to a rather unique agreement to excerpt McGinness’ drive-by character assassination of Sarah Palin in his “Doonesbury” strip. And The Rogue also got featured reviews by liberal newspaper mainstays The New York Times, Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times. Granted, the reviews were much harsher than Random House had expected, but as they say in the PR world, any publicity is good publicity. And speaking of publicity, McGinness and his 300-plus pages of Palin smears is currently in the vortex of a major controversy of firestorm magnitude, yet sales still remain tepid at best.

The massive hype surrounding McGinness has overshadowed the promotional effort for Johnston’s Deer in the Headlights, but both Palin character assassins benefited from friendly television venues where they hawked their books, and nutroots left blogs have hyped both volumes as the knockout punches that would surely spell the political end of the first woman to govern Alaska and campaign as the Republican Party’s vice presidential candidate once and for all. Yet despite all of this, both books have failed. What went wrong?

The left is already deep into the spin cycle, attempting to explain away the poor performance of the McGinness and Johnston books as a waning of the public’s interest in all things Palin. But the Wasilla Warrior’s name in the headlines still draws viewers to their television screens, sells magazines and guarantees web page traffic, so that excuse doesn’t hold water. We submit that the public has not lost interest in Sarah Palin, but it recognizes a smear job when it sees one. The left, which can always be counted on not to learn a thing from history, has been to this well so many times that John and Jane Q. Public are no longer buying the lies.

A similar one-two combination was tried against Sarah Palin in the spring, and it was an utter failure then, as Steve Flesher wrote May 29 at American Thinker:

Palin-flamethrower, Geoffrey Dunn of the Huffington Post released The Lies of Sarah Palin: The Untold Story Behind Her Relentless Quest for Power May 10th and Frank Bailey, former Aide to Palin, teamed up with Palin critic Jeanne Devon to release Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years on May 24th. Ardent opponents of Sarah Palin have been highly-anticipating these books which promised to tear down Palin’s public image for the long-term.

Interestingly, Geoffrey Dunn’s book has not even hit Amazon’s top-100 list since its release; and after a week of media coverage including appearances on NBC, ABC’s The View, Fox News, CNN, and many more, Frank Bailey’s “memoir” disappointingly debuted at #40 and has already fallen to #75.

While reasonable voters notice that perhaps Americans are beginning to tire of the anti-Palin volume, others are sure to argue that Americans simply don’t care about her at all, even though the latest headlines which seem to be tracking her every move impeccably could be enough to put that idea to rest.

One thing is sure for Palin as she moves toward making her 2012 decision. She enjoys the luxury of knowing she has been thoroughly vetted and scrutinized for the last two years. While anti-Palin readers have lined their ammunition up one year before a presidential campaign, her supporters are left wondering who is left in Alaska to interview. Because on the basis of Geoffrey Dunn’s and Frank Bailey’s accompanying Palin-bombs, what they’ve come up with so far doesn’t seem to be effectively extinguishing the grassroots energy Sarah Palin has uniquely created and maintained.

The Rogue was supposed to have found success where the Dunn and Bailey efforts met failure, but McGinness made a fatal mistake. The author bet his book on hollow promises from an Alaskan blogger who fed McGinness a long list of juicy allegations, but few real people were willing to put their names behind the rumors. McGinness claims that the reason for the lack of any compelling evidence in his book is that people were fearful for their very lives. Were this the case then why are Jesse Griffin and the members of his gang of Palin-hating bloggers still alive and well in Alaska? No, the reason that McGinness’ book is such a joke is that there’s literally no there there. The rumors are anonymous and unsubstantiated because there’s no truth to them, much less a single shred of compelling evidence to support them. Even liberal reviewers, who would otherwise be favorably disposed toward McGinness in his attempt to take down Clan Palin, recognize a lack of substance when they read it. Like the Dunn and Bailey assaults on Sarah Palin in May, the attempted September slayings of the Mama Grizzly by McGinness and Johnston are doomed to be abject failures.
