Gov. Palin: Families of soldiers who died trying to find deserter owed an apology

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 26, 2015

Posted on Gov. Palin’s Facebook page this afternoon:

—————–

 When President Obama traded one deserter for five evil terrorists hell-bent on destroying America, rational people did not believe the Obama administration’s claims about this traitor’s “health crisis,” or claims that he served “with honor and distinction,” and certainly not President Obama’s claim that this was a good deal for America.

After putting the country in danger, President Obama celebrated Bergdahl in our Rose Garden, arm in arm with his smiling father greeting Americans in Arabic and Pashtu, as our loyal troops cringed. In fact, in the days that followed, the Obama administration actually smeared the vets who came forward to tell the truth about Bergdahl’s traitorous desertion.

Now finally public disclosure tells the truth – that Bergdahl is a deserter. In my book, he is a traitor. Also, reports show the majority of the terrorist leaders Obama set free in exchange for this deserter have taken steps to hook up with the enemy – their Taliban pals in Afghanistan. As rational Americans predicted, the prisoners didn’t see the light while being freed at Gitmo, instead they burrowed further in the darkness of jihad, laughing all the way back to the battlefield to rejoin their death cult in the fight against U.S. troops, for when they are soon released from probation in Qatar, nothing stops them.

President Obama’s prisoner swap clearly undermined our forces during a time of war; he violated law by releasing terrorist prisoners without giving Congress the required 30 days’ advance notice; he created more distrust among our allies; he disrespected our loyal and sacrificial troops by actually honoring a traitor; and most significantly, our own Commander-in-chief endangered America.

Congress, if putting our nation in danger doesn’t rise to the level of “high crimes,” then nothing does. But since you’ve unequivocally and inexplicably taken impeachment off the table for anything Obama does while on your watch, what do you intend to do about this? If you do your job as balancers of power, we can surely expect repercussions, correct? While you’re thinking about your responsibility, consider the men who DID serve with honor and distinction, but of course were never celebrated in our Rose Garden. These men of courage and good character were killed while obeying orders to find and protect the celebrated deserter Bergdahl.

Mr. President, if you can pull yourself away from your all-important basketball brackets and buckets of popcorn, you too should take a good look at these selfless young troops who gave all for their country. We await your explanation on all of this; certainly even a complicit media deserves it. More importantly though, the families of our fallen heroes deserve the most heartfelt apology.

Dolly Parton lets the Lord’s light shine right through her! She met a special young fan who faces challenges that on the surface may seem unfair and unasked for and warms our hearts by inviting the beautiful child to:

“Sail away with me,
to another world,
and we rely on each other.”

Dolly is quoted as once saying, “I’ll never harden my heart, but I’ve toughened the muscles around it.” Thank you for your heart, Dolly. And thank you, Gage, for being you!

Gov. Palin: Heartland of America will sleep better following Netanyahu’s reelection

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 18, 2015

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page yesterday afternoon:

Congratulations, Prime Minister Netanyahu. Thank you to the good people of Israel for supporting a leader who will stand up and fight for all the free world while other leaders sit down. The Heartland of America will sleep better knowing Bibi remains the voice of reason and strength in the beautiful nation of Israel; for when Israel is safe, we are safe.

– Sarah Palin

We at SPIB join Governor Palin and many others who love Israel in congratulating Prime Minister Netanyahu on his reelection.   The closeness of the exit polls had many of us worried that a left-leaning politician could take office who could be manipulated by the Obama administration to give up more of Israel’s land, a move which would have greatly endangered Israel.  In fact, Obama had dispatched his former campaign officials to make that happen and even funded one of the participating entities through State Department grants.  However, Obama and his henchmen were no match for Israel’s God, who delivered the Israelites out of the hands of Haman and has given them many victories in battle in both recent and biblical times.

There has been much speculation about how such a resounding victory could happen after polls just before the election were showing Netanyahu losing ground.  Some have credited it to a shift to the right when he promised there would be no Palestinian state.   What he actually did was align himself with God’s plans for Israel and the Abrahamic covenant in which God set the boundaries of Israel.   Perhaps that is what God was waiting for before He stepped in to enable Bibi to achieve such a decisive victory out of near defeat.

Rabbi Naphtali “Tuly” Weisz  at Breaking Israel News explains it like this:

Analysis: Thank God for Bibi

God helped, and Bibi Netanyahu stunned his opponents, winning a shocking 30 seats in Tuesday’s historic Israeli election. It seems it was destiny; the name Benjamin means “son of my right hand”, while Netanyahu is Hebrew for “God gave.”

With Left Wing pollsters prematurely predicting Netanyahu’s defeat by falling to 20 seats, Netanyahu’s 30 seat victory is nothing short of miraculous.

What caused Netanyahu’s sudden turn around?

On Monday of this week, the prime minister reversed his position on Palestinian statehood and strongly rejected the possibility of a two-state solution on his watch.

In a televised interview with Israeli news site NRG, Netanyahu said that Israel was facing increasing pressure to return to its indefensible 1967 borders by agreeing to a peace deal.

“I think that whoever today moves to establish a Palestinian state and withdraw from territory is giving attack territory for Islamic extremists against the state of Israel,” Netanyahu stated. “Whoever ignores that is burying his head in the sand.”

Asked if that meant that Israel will never agree to a Palestinian state if he wins a fourth term on Tuesday, Netanyahu responded, “Indeed.”

Back in 2009 and buckling to international pressure, Netanyahu agreed to a Palestinian state. This week’s reversal turns the course on more than five years of official Israeli government policy.

In recent years, religious observers decried the Israeli government’s support for Palestinian statehood.

“For the past several months there have been ongoing diplomatic negotiations centering on the demand to give up additional parts of the land of Israel. The Prime Minister is now under additional pressure to agree to further withdrawals, God forbid,” a group of rabbis wrote in a public statement 2013, urging Israelis to pray.

In 2012, another group of Israeli rabbis met with the EU Ambassador to Israel and explained that the “majority of rabbis in Israel and abroad are of the opinion that it is absolutely forbidden, according to Jewish law, to give up an inch of the Promised Land to the Arabs,” as noted by Arutz Sheva.

The close nature of this week’s election caused the prime minister to rethink his political positions and reasses his Biblical values.

Standing on the contested Har Homa in Jerusalem this week, Netanyahu boldly declared,  “My friends and I in the Likud will keep Jerusalem united in all its parts, and we will keep fortifying it so that dividing it will not be possible and it will always remain united. We will keep developing our eternal capital.”

Although not a religiously observant Jew, Prime Minister Netanyahu deeply connects with the Bible and his role in Jewish history.

[…]

In returning to Biblical truth this week,  Netanyahu received the trust of the Jewish nation.

By reaffirming his unyielding support for an undivided Jerusalem and refusal to give up even one inch of the Land that God gave to the Jewish people, Netanyahu seemed to have sealed his fate for another term.

PM Netanyahu’s Prayer of Thanks at Western Wall for Historic Victory

The Likud garnered 30 mandates out of 120 seats in the Knesset; Netanyahu’s closest rival, Isaac Herzog, won 24 mandates with his Zionist Union coalition merger with Tzipi Livni.

Netanyahu is the first Israeli prime minister since David Ben Gurion to be re-elected for a fourth term. He also is well aware of who is really in charge: Netanyahu also made sure to head for the Western Wall just prior to leaving for the United States to deliver his historic address to the U.S. Congress in Washington DC — the only head of state ever to address America’s legislators three times, other than Winston Churchill.

Netanyahu told media who were present for his post-electoral visit to the Western Wall on Wednesday that he was moved by the responsibility that he felt was placed upon his shoulders.

“Here in this place I am awed by the historical significance of a people renewing itself in its homeland after 4,000 years. I am moved by the weight of responsibility that the people of Israel have placed upon my shoulders and appreciate the decision of Israeli citizens to choose me and my colleagues against all odds.

“I would like to say that I will do everything in my power to care of the welfare and security of all Israeli citizens,” he added.

Netanyahu was accompanied to the Wall by his wife Sarah.

Last night (March 17) during his victory speech at Likud campaign headquarters in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu said, “Reality is not waiting for us. The citizens of Israel expect us to quickly put together a leadership that will work for them regarding security, economy and society as we committed to do – and we will do so.”

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart News writes about the lessons that American conservatives can learn from Netanyahu’s leadership.

5 Lessons US Conservatives Should Learn From Netanyahu

 Netanyahu (Reuters)
——————————
by Ben Shapiro17 Mar 2015
 ——————————-

On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won re-election according to the latest vote counts, defeating not just his domestic leftist opposition, but the President of the United States in a public stand-off that had the President sending emissaries to Israel to try and oust Netanyahu. The victory represented a stunning turnaround for Netanyahu, whose Likud Party trailed significantly in the polls in the days leading up to the election.

How Netanyahu shifted the narrative in Israel makes for a compelling political case study in principle over prevarication. Netanyahu overcame a highly-publicized domestic scandal involving allegedly ordering some $2,700 worth of ice cream to the official residence, and exceeding his household budget by approximately a million shekel. He overcame inflation against the dollar that jacked up prices of goods in the weeks leading up to the election, and inflated real estate prices over the course of the last six years. He overcame foreign money injected into the campaign.

How? He employed five key tactics — tactics from which American conservatives could learn:

Build Around a Personality. Netanyahu’s speech before Congress was the latest indicator that he was a world leader ready to face down the most powerful people in the world, including Iran and its new friends in the Obama administration. While many Israelis said they didn’t want Netanyahu as prime minister, they preferred him over his rivals in every poll for months before the election by a wide margin. In the late days of the campaign, Netanyahu campaigned openly on the idea that conservatives ought to vote for his party in order to elevate him personally. By positioning himself as a major international presence, Netanyahu placed himself in admirable political position. There is danger to this strategy: it allows the opposition to focus on you personally. But voters vote for people, not for ideas.

Don’t Back Down From A Fight. Netanyahu’s U.S. ambassador, Ron Dermer, knew that Netanyahu was dramatically at odds with President Obama over Obama’s pending nuclear arms deal with Iran. When Dermer negotiated an appearance by Netanyahu before a joint session of Congress with Speaker of the House John Boehner, and Obama retaliated by refusing to see Netanyahu, Netanyahu did not apologize or back down. Instead, he silently embraced the face-off with President Obama, who foolishly elevated Netanyahu by using the media to slam Netanyahu repeatedly. Netanyahu, meanwhile, steadfastly stated that he would use any opportunity, particularly one before the most powerful legislature in the world, to lay out the case against a “bad deal” with Iran. The American media went berserk; the Israeli left media went insane, suggesting that Netanyahu had permanently damaged Israeli-American relations. The polls stated that the speech could actually hurt Netanyahu domestically. Netanyahu went anyway. The result: a boost in the polls and a decline for Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog.

Energize The Grassroots. The day before the election, Netanyahu stated that he would never support the establishment of a Palestinian state. This has long been Likud’s platform, but Netanyahu, after taking the prime ministership, had made noises about embracing the possibility of a Palestinian state. Many suspected that he embraced the possibility knowing that it was practically impossible, given the character of Israel’s enemies. But now, Netanyahu left nothing to chance: he wanted his supporters to know precisely where he stood. “I think that anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state today and evacuate lands is giving attack grounds to radical Islam against the state of Israel,” he stated. “There is a real threat here that a left-wing government will join the international community and follow its orders.”

Call Out The Opposition. On election day, Netanyahu let loose with a video explaining that “The right-wing government is in danger. Arab voters are going en masse to the polls. Left-wing NGOs are bringing them on buses.” The Joint Arab List made a similar announcement earlier in the day, stating that by 11 a.m., a full 10 percent of eligible Arabs had voted, as opposed to 3 percent in the last election cycle. The left media went totally crazy over this statement, with the Huffington Post labeling Netanyahu a racist. Of course, the left media also totally neglected to mention that the parties that comprise the Joint Arab List, which carries nearly all of the Arab votes in the elections, openly condemn the existence of the Jewish State, side with Hamas, and support the abolition of Israel entirely. Just days ago, the head of the campaign team said that Hamas was not a terrorist group and suggested that ISIS had taken a page from “the Zionist movement.” Imagine if America had a party dedicated to its destruction and openly allied with Osama Bin Laden in that goal. That is the Joint Arab List, and the Labor party and its allies relied heavily on it to get out the vote for the left. All three major Arab parties comprising the Joint Arab List have been banned from elections in the past. Netanyahu drove out his base to stop the rise of the Joint Arab List, and he was justified in doing so.

Stick To Your Issue. Netanyahu doggedly stuck to national security in this election cycle. While his opposition complained about rent and living expenses, Netanyahu pointed out again and again that his opponents were simply incapable of leading the nation through a time of security crisis. In one of his campaign commercials, Netanyahu posed as a babysitter — the only babysitter you’d trust with your children. Shocked parents asked him why he was there. “It’s either me,” Netanyahu said, “or Tzipi and Buji.” One of the parents responded, “Buji? Our children will have to take care of him! By the time we get home, we won’t have a house left!” As for Livni, Netanyahu stated, “By the time you get back, she’ll have moved on to the neighbors.” Netanyahu concluded, “This election, you will choose who will care for our children. This election, Likud is the only choice!”

Gov. Palin: Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota!

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 14, 2015

____________

Our families couldn’t be happier for Bristol and Dakota! We’re honored to welcome Dakota into our family. He’s an American hero and patriot whose service to our country – like all his fellow Medal of Honor recipients – has been above and beyond the call of duty; but even more important is he’s a good and kind man who loves Bristol and Tripp, and is loved by them. They met last year when he was in Alaska to film an episode of “Amazing America,” and even then it was noticed that just as we like to describe Bristol as “an old soul” wise beyond her years, the same also applies to Dakota. (A clear demonstration is the fact that he flew up North last week to ask both Todd and Bristol’s grandfather, Chuck, Sr., for her hand in marriage!)

Rascal Flatts dedicated a perfect song to them last night during their concert as Dakota proposed; it sums it up best: “Every long lost dream led me to where you are… they were like Northern stars pointing me on my way into your loving arms. This much I know is true – that God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you.”

Yes, God working behind the scenes to turn beauty from ashes. Had tough circumstances in their lives not occurred, and had they reacted differently to those circumstances, they’d have never met. Dakota’s story is told in the book “Into the Fire.”

Dakota wrote a beautiful “thank you” post to those wishing them well (https://www.facebook.com/SgtDakotaMeyer/posts/928241257215716), and Bristol’s picture says a thousand words (http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/2015/03/engaged/) .

Thank you for letting us share good news today!

– Sarah Palin

Our congratulations to the happy couple.  May God bless you with many happy years together and a lifetime of accomplishments as He leads you on life’s pathway.

Gov. Palin writes op-ed on Clinton e-mail scandal, flushes Hillary out

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 9, 2015

For important context and facts on the Clinton email scandal, please read my latest op-ed:
http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/03/09/gov-palin-faced-tough-questions-over-email-so-should-hillary-clinton/.

—————–

—————-

Here is Governor Palin’s op-ed at FOX News:

Gov. Palin: I faced tough questions over email, so should Hillary Clinton

660-Hillary-mobile-phone.jpg

The latest Obama administration scandal involving Hillary Clinton’s emails has many Americans discussing private email accounts used by government officials, and clarification is in order.

It’s appropriate and proper for a politician to use private email for personal and campaign business. This is what I did as governor of Alaska in order to be in compliance with the law, which requires that personal or campaign business not be conducted using public resources such as a government email account. There is a firm line separating the two.

However, that’s not what we see with this Clinton email scandal. As Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary Clinton used private email accounts on a privately maintained server 100 percent of the time for 100 percent government business. That’s unethical, no doubt illegal, and flies in the face of all claims of transparency. Hillary Clinton and her staff weren’t trying to be in compliance with the law; they were skirting it altogether.

The release of my emails was a great boon for Alaska’s tourism industry because dozens of national reporters descended on Alaska to pour through tens of thousands of pages of my emails looking for some smoking gun. They even crowd-sourced the work out to the general public to help them look for dirt! They were sorely disappointed.

Consider, for example, how Secretary Clinton’s private email server makes a mockery of transparency when it comes to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

First, some background: I know something about how annoying FOIA requests can be for public officials. After I returned home from the 2008 vice presidential campaign, the state of Alaska was flooded with innumerable FOIA requests to see literally every single email I ever wrote while governor. It was an overwhelming request for a small population state with limited resources.  But our system of government relies on transparency, and that means public officials must suck it up and let the public see whatever they want.

When FOIA requests bombarded us, investigators and our attorney general’s office were given full access to all of my state and private emails. The only emails redacted were the very few that were protected by attorney/client privilege – a determination agreed upon by my lawyers and the Attorney General’s office who reviewed them. In other words, an independent third party reviewed every email. There was no chance for any “smoking gun” to escape detection because nothing was kept secret in any way. Everything was done in the most transparent way possible.

Contrast that with the way Secretary Clinton has handled transparency. She created private email accounts for herself and her staff on a private email server that she controls completely.

She hasn’t handed over the server to any independent party for review, and it’s already too late to do so because for all we know someone might have already deleted any trace of incriminating emails to and from Secretary Clinton and her aides. This is the opposite of open and transparent government and obviously doesn’t follow the rules.

An honest politician has nothing to fear from the public seeing her emails. I know this. Eventually all but those few redacted emails of mine were released to the public and remain online to this day for anyone to read at any time.

In fact, the release of my emails was a great boon for Alaska’s tourism industry because dozens of national reporters descended on Alaska to pour through tens of thousands of pages of my emails looking for some smoking gun. They even crowd-sourced the work out to the general public to help them look for dirt! They were sorely disappointed.

All they found was evidence of an administration doing what the people sent us to do – work hard for them. My favorite summary of the email findings came from CNN’s Drew Griffin who reported: “I think what we’re seeing here is a hard-working governor, working hard for the state of Alaska, a lot of discussion about policy, about taxes, about cutting budgets, a lot of just mundane state government work.”

So, at least the media and the public learned a lot about conservative governance, responsible resource development, fiscal budgeting, Fish & Game management, and other scintillating topics.

But don’t take my word for it. Search the online databases of my emails created by the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and other national media sources… and be bored.

Now many of these same media outfits are pursuing access to Secretary Clinton’s emails. Will they put the same effort into her emails as they did mine?

Unfortunately for America, we have no way of knowing what’s already missing from among Secretary Clinton’s emails. In fact, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chair of the House select committee investigating Benghazi, explained that the emails she submitted to his committee contain huge gaps spanning months.

Good luck finding those missing emails. And good luck getting a straight answer from the Obama administration as to why no one in the White House noticed that the Secretary of State wasn’t using a government email account.

You’d expect more from the self-described “most transparent administration in history.” And you should demand more from anyone who wants to be president someday.

Sarah Palin first made history on December 4, 2006, when she was sworn in as the first female and youngest governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped Palin to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket. She is a contributor for Fox News where she offers her political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms.

As Obama has done more than once,  Clinton acted in response to Governor Palin’s challenge:

Sarah Palin Shames Hillary Clinton Into Press Conference To Explain Email Issues…

In less than an hour Sarah Palin achieved something the rest of the punditry and media class were unable to do.

palin hillary

Pay attention to the time.

[…]

The Bloomberg report was sent out at 4:21pm

Two sources close to Clinton said Monday that the former secretary of state will likely hold a press conference in an effort to push back on a week of speculation about why she used the private account instead of one hosted by the State Department. It would also present an opportunity for Clinton to defend her family foundation’s acceptance of contributions from foreign donors during and after her time at State.

A press conference addressing perceived secrecy and potential ethical lapses isn’t what Clinton wants to be doing in mid-March, and she and some of her close advisers had hoped to put off answering questions about her e-mail account until she formally launches her campaign, almost certainly in April.

But their desire to ride out the storm was overtaken by a sense that their initial attempt to let some air out of the controversy—via a tweet conveying Clinton’s request for the State Department to release her e-mails—hadn’t done enough to ease the tension. (link)
