Debunking Another Lie: Gov. Palin is NOT Receiving Fee for 9/11 AK Event

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 9, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com


Time and time again, people jump the gun in their determination to characterize Governor Palin as someone unworthy of America’s trust. And time and time again, they are proven wrong.

Today’s complaints centered around the teaming of Glenn Beck and the Governor on 9/11 in Alaska, which was announced here. Without knowing the facts, people have run off at the mouth, accusing them of profitting from this event. Jonathan Capehart is one such person. He writes:

“Restoring America” apparently wasn’t enough for Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. They now appear to be cashing in on the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

[…]

If building a Muslim community center dedicated to human understanding and tolerance two blocks from Ground Zero “stabs hearts,” then how should taking money from people at an event “to commemorate 9/11” be described? Disrespectful. Distatesful. Shameful. Greedy. Narcissistic. Did I leave any adjectives out?

No, you just left the facts out. So let’s set the record straight on Governor Palin–again.

Via CNN (emphasis added):

A Beck spokesperson says Sarah Palin is not receiving an appearance fee, and Beck is donating his to charity.

“Glenn had always intended to donate the speaking fee from the event on Saturday, September 11th in Alaska to Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Governor Palin is not and was never going to receive a fee for introducing Glenn at this event,” a spokesperson for Glenn Beck told CNN.

Retraction, anybody?

Palin speaks out against mosque near Ground Zero

Posted by loricalabrese on July 19, 2010

Ground Zero at the WTC site

Controversial plans to build a mosque near the site of the 9/11 terror attack on the World Trade Center in New York City have many speaking out, including Sarah Palin, who tweeted the following Sunday morning…

“Peace-seeking Muslims, pls understand, Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation; it stabs hearts. Pls reject it in interest of healing.”

Palin also wrote, “Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real.”

The mosque has the support of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate, but, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today, New York City voters are with Palin and oppose the proposal 52 – 31 percent. Another 17 percent are undecided.

Many are stating that Americans must take the feelings of Muslims into account, but Ali al-Ahmed, a Saudi native who founded the Institute for Gulf Affairs and is an advocate for civil rights and religious freedom in the Middle East, says, “Muslims must take the feelings of Americans into account” in this article at Boston.com.

Muslims should take the feelings of Americans into account because:

1.  Protestors say the man behind the mosque – Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf – is not the man of peace he claims to be.

“He says he advocates for tolerance, but in his book he advocates for Sharia law which is radically intolerant,” said Pamela Gellar, who leads the organization Stop Islamization of America.

2. Where is the funding coming from for this project?

Gellar added, “We have no idea where the funding is coming from. We know his father built an Islamic Center on 96th street and was funded by 49 Muslim countries. Who’s funding this $50 million monster? We want to know.”

3. As Palin states, the pain is still real.

The reasons against the mosque don’t reflect a basic lack of understanding about Islam and the connection between American Muslims and terrorism. People need to understand that families lost loved ones in the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001, and that pain doesn’t go away. Building a tribute to Islam so close to the World Trade Center would be insensitive.

September 11, 2001: Past, Present, Future

Posted by Ron Devito on September 11, 2009

The Past

I shot the first two photos in the early 1990s, the first from the Staten Island Ferry, and the second from the 86th Floor Observatory Deck of the Empire State Building. The Twin Towers were an important part of my life, as they frequently punctuated childhood visits to Manhattan. I worked there for a week as a temp; worked six months in the neighborhood, and celebrated my first wedding anniversary there.

A Day that will Live in Infamy

When these attacks were launched upon our nation, I was working for Con Edison doing desktop support and LAN administration. I had been there about 18 months and had the good fortune to be at at our Victory Blvd. facility in Staten Island, some 30 miles away from the Twin Towers that day. My wife was supposed to be exiting the Battery Tunnel at the time the first plane struck as she would have been on her way to a dance class. After an hour of frantic calling, I learned that she stayed home.

I wanted a Reagan-like response to the September 11 attacks. As the hours passed, I waited. Nothing. Our response would come October 7, 2001 at 12:30 EDT. I was in Boston with my wife as we visited a relative of hers who was attending Harvard University on a partial scholarship. That day, I felt I had to visit all the historic sites in the area — Faneuil Hall, Bunker Hill, Lexington, Concord. When I heard the Battle Hymn of the Republic being played on church bells, I ran to find a TV, and that was where I saw that the War in Afghanistan had started.

While George W. Bush was no Ronald Reagan, he did keep us safe following 9/11, for there was not one attack on US soil. Indeed many attempts were foiled and many Al Qaeda sleeper cells were busted up.

Rebuilding the Twin Towers — A Lost Cause for the WTC Site

Immediately after the atrocities, I started advocating for rebuilding the Twin Towers, a cause which would take many twists and turns and dominate my political action for the next seven years. Ultimately, I met Ken Gardner and worked with him on his Twin Towers-based project.

Unfortunately, it was not to be at the WTC site. Today, the WTC site is a cacophony of bickering government agencies, unelected authorities, stakeholder groups, and private interests, each with their own agendas. Much of the development that is to replace the Twin Towers is way over budget, at least five years delayed, and may never be built at all (Brown, 2009). A nightmare scenario is unfolding at the WTC site where neither the Twin Towers, nor what was chosen to replace them will be built as envisioned. But enough has been done at the site that it is too late for Twin Towers there. My hope is that Ken Gardner will have his project built in the Jersey City/Hoboken area, and the official project will be salvaged so that the WTC site is returned to its original function.

The whole WTC soap opera proves the thesis espoused by Sarah Palin and Ronald Reagan before her: big government is the problem, not the solution.

Resurrection and Juxtaposition

It was at the same Victory Blvd. facility nearly seven years to the day following 9/11, that I would hear the resurrection of Ronald Reagan. As I pulled my assigned minivan out of the lot and turned on the radio, her voice and words would so transfix me that after two blocks I could not drive anymore. The yearning I felt at that Victory Blvd. location some seven years earlier was answered by a woman’s voice.

Watch as she interrupted her own VP campaign to return to Alaska and bid her troops farewell to Iraq on September 11, 2008. Her son, Track was among them. His 12-month tour should be ending soon.

Governor Palin at the WTC site and with FDNY

This is what we elected President….

…an effete socialist hell-bent on morphing this nation into a Third World socialist dictatorship. Of 9/11, his minister Rev. Wright said, “America’s chickens have come home to roost!” The man we elected President listened to 20 years of Black Liberation Theology from a “minister” who screamed at the top of his lungs, “Not God Bless America! God D— America!” We elected President a man who launched his career in the basement of Bill Ayers a well-known domestic terrorist who should have been executed along with is wife for their crimes. On 9/11, Ayers was seen stomping on our flag and expressing remorse — remorse that he did not set off enough bombs! The enigmatic nature of Obama’s life and the evil characters he associated with is beyond contemptible. And…people wonder why I will never say “President” and his name in the same sentence.

This is not about partisan politics, certainly not about Republicans vs. Democrats, and absolutely not about race. Hillary Clinton – a Democrat is in that photo saluting our flag and demonstrating some basic love of country, not demonstrated by the man with his hands clasped. This is the man we now call “President.” And speaking of Democrats — some of Sarah Palin’s best and hardest-to-the-core supporters were — and are Democrats! They’re Hillary supporters, and center-leftists. Though I am a Republican, I campaigned with these Democrats in Pennsylvania, and some are close friends. They would go to Hell and back for Sarah Palin. This is about our national security and our continued existence as the Constitutional Federated Republic envisioned by our forefathers.

Sarah Palin: Presidential Leadership…

“Praesis ut prosis ne ut imperes”
Lead in order to serve, not in order to rule.
(Motto of The Laptop of the United States – LOTUS Blog)

She elevated soldiers’ ranks…
She served….
She saluted her Non-Commissioned Officers….
She was saluted as a Commander…

“As commander-in-chief, Governor Palin is the one we look to for leadership and inspiration while serving and defending the sovereign boundaries of Alaska,” said Lt. Gen. (AK) Craig E. Campbell, Adjutant General of the Alaska National Guard (Kosovo, 2009, ¶4).
