Colorado Christian University prepared for Sarah Palin visit

Posted by joshpainter on March 8, 2011

Unlike the Pacheco Foundation, which allowed leftist cranks to bully it into cancelling a charity fundraising event with Sarah Palin as keynote speaker, Colorado Christian University is ready and able to deal with deranged, Palin-hating liberals, according to a report in The Denver Post:

John Andrews, who leads the Centennial Institute think tank at the Lakewood college, said the school has a signed contract for the event and is prepared to deal with any publicity — positive or negative — that the conservative star might bring with her.

“Her staff has told us to expect an interesting ride, in terms of static,” Andrews said. “We know what’s down that road, and we are eager to go there.”

On Feb. 4, the Sharon K. Pacheco Foundation announced that Palin would be the featured speaker at a May 2 benefit in Glendale for military families but canceled the event less than 48 hours later, blaming threats and negative feedback.

[…]

Andrews said the Tea Party icon will not receive a speaking fee for her appearance at CCU. Palin’s fee sometimes exceeds $100,000, the Washington Speaker’s Bureau said last month.

Andrews said he doesn’t think security concerns derailed the Pacheco Foundation event and that Colorado came off “not looking great” because of a “perception that someone important could be chased away.

“Certainly, there is a warm welcome for her on our campus,” Andrews said.

[…]

All ticket proceeds from Palin’s Lakewood appearance will support the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, a national nonprofit group benefiting the families of fallen soldiers, Andrews said.

Andrews said the fact that Palin’s eldest son is a veteran made her a great choice for the event. Track Palin served in Iraq in 2008-2009.

Gov. Palin to Headline Military Appreciation Rally in Colorado May 2

Posted by joshpainter on March 8, 2011

You can’t keep a Mama Grizzly down. Nor can you intimidate all the good grizzlies who are determined to hold a benefit for the families of the fallen. After the Sharon K. Pacheco Foundation was forced to scuttle plans to have Sarah Palin speak at a similar fundraiser in Glendale, Colorado because of personal attacks and “an onslaught of negative rhetoric” against Gov. Palin, Colorado Christian University has announced Tribute to the Troops, featuring the 2008 vice presidential candidate as keynote speaker.

Scheduled for the CCU Event Center on the university’s Lakewood campus May 2, the same date that the Pacheco event was to have taken place, the rally will also feature retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin and members of all branches of the US Armed Forces.

Only 1,000 tickets will be sold at $25 each, and all proceeds will be donated to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), the front line charity benefiting the families and loved ones of our military men and women.

To purchase tickets, register here.

Teens flock to California church to hear Bristol Palin

Posted by joshpainter on February 13, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
The Whittier Daily News reports that teens from across the Southwest made their way to Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Arcadia, California Saturday to hear Bristol Palin speak about the dangers facing today’s youth:

The speech was part of Lovefest, an annual two-day church event that focuses on teens and values. The event held in a church tent familiar to the revival circuit, where youngsters listened to Palin’s speech.

From there, the children broke into smaller classes to focus on a array of teen issues – from dating to safely navigating the Internet.

Palin was brought in to serve as a role model and to talk candidly about her experience as a teenage mom. Children came from across Southern California and from as far away as Nevada, church officials said.

“She came right out and said, `I’ve been criticized and called an hypocrite because I was taking a stance on abstinence and I said I don’t want you to go through this,”‘ said Dave Sweeney, co-founder of the Love Fest. “She implored young people to not to listen to those who say abstinence is not a big deal.”

[…]

“We didn’t want this to turn into a political event,” said Roger Sonnenberg, pastor of Our Saviour Lutheran Church.

But there was no denying the effect of Palin’s star power on the children.

“I liked her story and the way she presented her opinion without forcing her ideas on us,” said Haley Gould, 17, of Glendora.

RGJ: Sarah Palin speech raises $200K for Safari Club in Reno

Posted by joshpainter on January 30, 2011

– by Josh Painter
*
Some 2,000 formally-dressed members of the Safari Club International, after paying $100 each for what the Gazette-Journal billed as “Reno’s hottest ticket,” crowded into the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino’s Tuscany Ballroom Saturday night to hear Sarah Palin speak of the importance of protecting the environment and how Hunting and fishing are part of the American “heritage” and the nation’s “exceptionalism”:

“Don’t retreat, stand tall,” Palin told the crowd as she emphasized the importance of “responsible conservation.”

Palin also spoke of Second Amendment rights.

“We need to keep tabs on what the White House is telling us,” she also said.

She later said Americans would need to “count on Congress,” where the GOP regained control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November’s election.

But Palin emphasized the importance of local governments in setting policy.

“The best (management) is local” not “bureaucrats thousand of miles away” in Washington making the decisions, she said, drawing on her experience as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, before becoming that state’s governor.

[…]

Political science professor Fred Lokken of Truckee Meadows Community College said he considers Palin’s Safari Club appearance a “coup” for Reno and an “excellent” move for her.

“It’s always been a who’s who of some of the prominent conservative Republicans, so frankly for her either to get the invite or be able to wrangle the invite, it really helps her as she tries to position for 2012 and after,” he said. “This is one of the places to the seen.”

Palin’s visit will carry momentum beyond Reno since the Safari Club event draws visitors from afar, many of them wealthy.

[…]

“Being able to come to a group like this (gives) some street cred that might help her to sort of reestablish or bolster her efforts at building a campaign for 2012,” Lokken said. “It’s a guns rights place. They are huge in the Second Amendment. Her whole connection to Alaska probably makes her one of the most logical people they have had in years.”

Smith predicted that in a few months, Gov. Palin will be seen and heard again in Nevada at “Republican headquarters.”

Sarah Palin Advocates for Civic Education

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on November 13, 2010

Governor Sarah Palin gave a speech last week at Plumstead Christian School in Plumsteadville, PA that wasn’t highly publicized or talked about.  I particularly enjoyed her plug for school choice and parental sovereignty in education.  She also spoke about the important role that Christian schools play educating students about our nation’s founding, our Constitution’s foundation in Natural Law and American exceptionalism.

Good stuff, I encourage you to watch the whole thing.

Update on Sarah Palin’s Trip to Iowa This Friday

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on September 15, 2010

Just a few more details regarding Governor Palin’s visit to Des Moines on Friday…

The Ronald Reagan Dinner: A Salute to Freedom will be held this Friday, September 17 at HyVee Hall (730 3rd St. in Des Moines, IA).  The doors will open at 5:00p, and the program will begin at 6:30p.

You can purchase your tickets here if you haven’t done so already.  The cost is $100/person, and $1000 to sponsor a table.  I know the Black Hawk County GOP had four tickets left, and my friend (and contributor here) Kim Lehman reserved a table and was looking for people (if you are interested, contact me and I’ll get you in touch with her).

If you can’t attend, C-SPAN will be covering the dinner so you can watch on TV or online at approximately 7:00pm (CST).  You can also  land here as I will be sitting at bloggers’ row live blogging the event.

Shane Vander Hart is the editor of Caffeinated Thoughts (and lives near Des Moines, IA where they trip over presidential candidates).  You can follow Shane on Twitter and friend him on Facebook, he’d love to connect with you.

Sarah Palin: Faith, Family, Freedom: Remembering What Really Matters: A Big Night In Missouri

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 3, 2009

Last night Sarah spoke to a packed house at the College of the Ozarks in Missouri. Although these things are off limits to reporters, and who can blame ‘em, the tweets were flying. I’ll have some of the better ones, with links to all, below.

But first, here’s what Sarah has to say:

Faith, Family, Freedom: Remembering What Really Matters

My parents and I just had a wonderful time at “Hard Work U” – the school motto of College of the Ozarks. It earned that proud nickname because students there work their way through college and graduate with little or no debt. (In other words, a place after my own heart, and the hearts of others who worked their way through college and, like me, maybe took five years to finish because of work schedules!)

At tonight’s patriotic event at the college we heard some amazing personal stories of heroism and sacrifice by our military veterans in attendance, including members of our Greatest Generation, who we honored tonight. It was such an inspiration to hear their stories and affirm the principles that make this country great – faith, hard work, perseverance, patriotism, and public service.

All Americans need to hear from these true, proud patriots. May we never forget their fight for freedom. Their battles make the petty shots and irrelevant “challenges” some of us face today pale in comparison. I thank them for allowing us a healthy perspective and a reminder of what really matters.

– Sarah Palin

PS: Please enjoy the photos below from Arizona, New Mexico, and Missouri!

We’ve been given permission to reprint the copyrighted photos you see, but if you want to see more, please go to Sarah’s Facebook page, here.

Here’s a video of Sarah arriving at Borders in Springfield:

The website: Governor Palin 4 President has a nice reporting of things. It seems 5,000 packed the house to see Sarah:

Point Lookout, Mo — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said tonight she doesn’t need an official “title to affect positive change” in the country. Palin told an estimated crowd of 5,000 packed in Keeter Gymnasium at College of the Ozarks that despite her resignation, she is moving on “in the battle with new strategy.”

Palin was the keynote speaker tonight during a convocation that honored World War II veterans and others connected to the private college with “Great American” awards. Palin was the inaugural recipient of the award for her contributions to promoting patriotism, said College of the Ozarks President Jerry Davis.

Silver Dollar City co-owner Sharon “Sherry” Herschend, an alumna of the school, was among seven people who received a Great American Award from the college. The military veterans participated in a program where they visited battlefields with students to teach the young people about sacrifices their elders made, Davis said.

As part of Palin’s speaking contract, College of the Ozarks sought to ban reporters from covering the speech. But the News-Leader and other local media outlets obtained free tickets and sent reporters to cover the speech from the bleachers. Palin’s speech came after spending three hours in Springfield autographing copies of her new book “Going Rogue” at Borders Bookstore on South Glenstone Avenue.

Palin talked about how she got started in politics, working her way up from the Wasilla, Alaska, City Council to mayor and then eventually to chair of the Alaska Gas and Oil Conservation Commission and governor of the state.

As a city councilwoman, Palin said she didn’t conform to the town elders’ standards for the status quo of governance. “I kind of went rogue, even back then,” Palin said jokingly, making a reference to her book title and history of going off-script while running for vice president last year.

Palin spoke to a friendly crowd that routinely applauded what she had to say about the current state of affairs in Washington, D.C., and her call for the country to return to its “pioneering values” of work hard, independence and taking care of your neighbors.

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

Here are a few choice tweets from the night. BTW, when you see @ SarahPalinUSA folks are of course referencing Sarah herself. Twitter has it’s own protocol, it seems.

From Chad Livengood of the News-Leader:

“Borders manager says Palin signed up to 1,200 books for 700-900 people in 3 hours. That’s a signature every 9 seconds. http://tiny.cc/MZlOj

“The Borders manager said yesterday he didn’t think they could handle anymore than 500 people, so they consider this good.”

“The first mention of @SarahPalinUSA gathers a standing applause at the convocation, which is underway.”

“College of the Ozarks is awarding @SarahPalinUSA its inaugural “Great American Award’ for her patriotism and spreading it.”

“C of O’s Jerry Davis: “If all you know about Sarah Palin is what the so-called mainstream media has to say, you’ve got a lot to learn.”

“Jerry Davis just introduced @SarahPalinUSA: “She has her hand on the heart beat of America,” he said.”

“@SarahPalinUSA on Jerry Davis: “I just love him. He’s such a hoot.” She says he’s like her in that he “goes off script” and goes “rogue.”

“Palin is talking about work ethic & pushing one’s self to better their lives. “I don’t believe in coincidences,” she said.”

“@SarahPalinUSA says she returned home from campaign trail to new political rivals, bringing Alaska gov’t to a “grinding halt.”

“@SarahPalinUSA is getting to why she quit: “We spent about 80% of our time fending off frivilous lawsuits.”

“@SarahPalinUSA says she resigned “with no scandals running me out of office, despite what the media desperately wanted to find.”

“Possible @SarahPalinUSA Quote of the Night: “You don’t need a title to affect positive change.”

You can read more of Chad’s take on the night here.

Fox2now, the local Fox affiliate, has some great video. It’s interesting to see young and old. One 20 something girl who drove in from St Louis is interviewed, as well as a guy of about the same age, who drove in from Arkansas, and says that not only does he feel that Sarah will be the leader of the Conservative movement by 2012, he also has hopes she will be the next Ronald Reagan!

Personally, when I hear younger folks mention the Great Renaldus Magnus with such reverence, it really makes me feel good about the direction our younger generation will take us. You can see the video here.

Citizen Palin 4 President, another website devoted to a Sarah Palin presidency, has more really great video, including a truly glowing report from Fox2now. The word rock star is used quite often! Check out the website and see the videos here.

Here are some tweets from Ron Davis:

“SP: ‘As ur spine is stiffened, the spines of others will be stiffened.'”

“Calls self mix of federalist, Jeffersonian.”

“SP: much media coverage ‘waste of ink.'” (Editor’s note: I agree!)

“Says ethics chgs were ‘game being played.'”

“On resigning: God has ‘so blessed that decision.'”

“Says US at crossrds in ‘economic, military n values oriented battles.'”

“Crisis abt nation’s identity, she says.”

Dave Catanese offers his take:

“In giving award to @SarahPalinUSA, C of O prez citing her dedication to military veterans as Governor.”

“@SarahPalinUSA now helping honor 7 World War II/Vietnam vets who participate in school’s Patriotic Travel Program.”

“Maybe College of the Ozarks president Jerry Davis should run for office. The guy’s a heck of a storyteller. Got more 1-liners than ”

“Jerry Davis’ intro: “If all you know about Sarah Palin is what the mainstream media says about her, you’ve got a lot to learn.””

“Davis cites Palin’s motto: “No more politics as usual.” “I’d like to see that in Washington myself,” Davis says to cheers.”

“Palin speaking now… “Davis is such a hoot.” Mentions FOX News appearance. Cheers. “I knew he was gonna go rogue,” Palin adds.”

“Palin says College of the Ozarks debt-free education should be model for the nation.”

“Palin says never thought taking 5 yrs to get a 4-yr degree would be an issue until the “lame-stream” media took issue with it.”

“Palin says she’s “an ordinary American given extraordinary opportunities” because she’s put her life in God’s hands.”

“Palin:”Despite what the media wants to..spin about my record…I will keep calling it as I see it.”

“@SarahPalinUSA cites journalism degree: “So much has changed in the world of journalism since then…Holy Moly!”

“@SarahPalinUSA touting work as city councilwoman in Wasilla, “bucking consensus.” “Only dead fish go with the flow,” she says”

“Palin says the reason she wants to keep gov’t power on the local level, because she’s lived it. Encourages involvement in local politics.”

“@SarahPalinUSA calls veep nod “honor of a lifetime” she doesn’t regret but outlining sacrifices she had to make”

“Palin now on 4th mention of media, says “media isn’t fond of common sense conservative values.” But adds she’s not whining”

“Palin also says during the campaign, “the media did spin” her lifestory into “something unrecognizable.” Can’t imagine why media is barred.”

“Palin mounting a complete defense against attacks, lawsuits, gossip and media coverage of her during ’08 campaign.”

“Palin says she prayed about how to stop “the hurt and paralysis” in her state. “Calling the audible has worked for my state,” she says.”

“@SarahPalinUSA now turning to issues, says “misplaced government interference” caused economic crisis, “not our free-market principles.”

“@SarahPalinUSA: “Things crashed…darnit… in the midst of our campaign.” “John McCain and I placed 2nd out of 2.”

“@SarahPalinUSA says it’s beyond ridiculous to complain about last administration’s spending when Obama has spent 4 times more.”

“@SarahPalinUSA hits POTUS for “apologizing” to foreign countries. No mention of Obama’s Afghanistan strategy.”

“Palin’s concludes her 50-minute speech to a standing O. I’m off to our satellite truck. See you live on Ky3 News @ 10!”

You can see all of Dave’s tweets here. He gives a great accounting of the event, but is clearly miffed that the media wasn’t allowed in, though, there he was! Again this is standard for private speeches. Poor fellow was stuck in the nosebleed section of gym, as well. But a nice summation on his part anyhow.

Catanese’s blog has some neat video of Sarah’s dad, Chuck rippin’ on the “liberal media back east” and of Sally, Sarah’s mom, that you can see here.

“The liberal media back east, they raise hell with her. She’s tough. It hurts us when they hit the kids, but when you’re a politician, that comes with the territory”

___Chuck Heath

As always, wherever Sarah goes, she is a hit. Sarah brings something that no one else out there can. Sarah has a quality about her that can’t be bought. It can’t be learned and it can’t be taught. It just is.

Many people compare Sarah to the Great Ronald Reagan, and of course, that’s a valid comparison, and one that makes a lot of sense. After all, Sarah has studied Reagan since she was a kid, and quotes him in almost every speech or interview.

Both Reagan and Sarah come from small towns, went to small schools, including the “wrong colleges” and have a working class background. Like Sarah, Reagan was even a sportscaster!

But it goes further than the superficial stuff. Sarah, like Reagan, has an unbelievably strong work ethic. She has the ethic of those who spend a lifetime working with their hands. Sarah understands why our founders designed our form of government, and believes in that direction.

Sarah understands that America is it’s people, not it’s government. That left alone, the American people have made this the greatest nation on earth.

Ronald Reagan railed against the government his entire career. Sarah is cut from that same cloth. Both know that government isn’t the answer, government is the problem.

One more important thing, like Reagan, Sarah sees America as “that shining city on a hill,” this wonderful place were men are free and everyone has a chance to succeed. A nation that is the envy of the world and has inspired other nations and other peoples to be free.

Sarah brings a good old fashioned common sense with her that is rare among politicians these days. She also brings a western independence and an Alaskan pioneering spirit, a can do kind of attitude, no doubt shaped by life in the rugged wilderness of Alaska.

It’s no wonder that the College of the Ozarks saw fit to honor Sarah with it’s inaugural “Great American Award” for promoting patriotism.

Sarah Palin Event Calendars

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on November 12, 2009

As information has become available about Governor Sarah Palin’s book tour and upcoming speaking engagements, several blogs have posted unofficial calendars of these events.

On November 4, Josh Painter posted SARAH PALIN GOING ROGUE BOOK TOUR SCHEDULE on Texas4Palin. This book tour calendar contains links to his sources of information and is being updated as more information becomes available.

On November 9, Sarah Palin – Our New Cornerstone  posted GOING ROGUE ON TOUR, which is a book tour calendar that includes the addresses of the book tour stops. This calendar is also being updated as additional information becomes available.

In a collaborative effort between Governor Sarah Palin’s Accomplishments , The Palination Texas4PalinThe Book of Sarah Sarah’s Web Brigade , and Sarah Palin Information Blog, a Google calendar of book tour events and speaking engagements was launched on November 8. This calendar, entitled GOVERNOR PALIN’S UN-OFFICIAL EVENTS CALENDAR, is being updated continuously as additional information becomes available.

Upinak, editor and publisher of The Palination, had the original idea for a calendar of Governor Palin’s events. Using information from collaborating blogs, Ron Devito developed the calendar on Google and launched it first from a blog on Governor Sarah Palin’s Accomplishments. Copies of the calendar are also embedded on the Texas4Palin blog and the Book of Sarah blog. Josh Painter is making a major contribution toward updating the calendar.

The calendar contains this disclaimer:

The blog sites and the calendar are not endorsed, authorized or operated by Governor Palin, her staff, or any other candidate or committee. This calendar is not an official schedule of Governor Palin’s events. Our confirmations are done on a best-effort basis.

Links to Governor Palin’s Un-Official Events Calendar can be found in the sidebars of participating blogs. There is also a SARAH PALIN EVENTS CALENDARS page on the Sarah Palin Information Blog, which contains links to all the calendars listed above as well as links to official information released by Governor Sarah Palin and/or her representatives. As of now, the official information is limited to Governor Palin’s Facebook posts, GOING ROGUE BOOK TOUR DATES THROUGH THANKSGIVING and OPRAH ON NOVEMBER 16TH.
