  • Had a great time today in Gilbert, Arizona, at a rally for Kirk Adams. It’s very important to pay attention to these down ballot races like Kirk Adams, Jeff Flake, and Paul Gosar in Arizona. We have to remember that this election is not just about replacing the party in power. It’s about who and what we replace it with. Grassroots conservatives know this. Without the energy and wisdom of the grassroots, the GOP would not have had the historic 2010 electoral victories. That’s why the controversial rule change being debated at the RNC convention right now is so very disappointing. It’s a direct attack on grassroots activists by the GOP establishment, and it must be rejected. Please follow the link to Michelle Malkin’s article about this.

From a staff article at abc15.com in Gilbert, AZ:

Sarah Palin skips GOP convention to campaign for Kirk Adams in Gilbert

Last Updated: 1 hour and 34 minutes ago

By: ABC15.com staff, wire reports

GILBERT, AZ – At least one well-known Republican will not be at the Republican National Convention.

Former GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be in Gilbert on Monday, campaigning for 5th District Congressional candidate Kirk Adams.

Adams is running against former representative and gubernatorial candidate Matt Salmon.

Palin and Adams will be at Joe’s Farm Grill in Gilbert starting at 3:30 p.m.

The event will include live music and a family BBQ.

Adams and Palin will be serving food as a way of saying “thank you” for all the support and encouraging people to get out and vote, according to a news release.

Adams was endorsed by Palin earlier this month.

Palin says she chose the Gilbert restaurant after seeing it featured on Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.”

Adams says Palin wants to keep speeches under 10 minutes so she can meet guests, according to KSAZ-TV.

Palin: Paul Gosar for AZ-4

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 23, 2012

Earlier today Governor Sarah Palin again endorsed Congressman Gosar of Arizona’s 4th district.  Via her Facebook page, Palin touted Gosar’s accomplishments as a freshman congressman and urged conservatives to support Gosar’s re-election bid.

Dr. Paul Gosar is not a career politician. He’s a dentist, a conservative, a small business owner, and someone I was proud to endorse in 2010. His accomplishments as a freshman congressman are remarkable and a shining example of what hardworking public service is all about.

You won’t find Paul playing endless rounds of golf or hobnobbing at D.C. cocktail parties. When Congress isn’t in session, you’ll find him with the people he represents. In the past 18 months, he’s held over 24 town halls and put over 60,000 miles on his old car traveling his district. And when he is not listening to the people he works for, he is with his wife Maude and his three kids, probably pulling weeds in his yard as he thinks of ways to shrink government and bring about the reform we need in Washington to secure a prosperous and fiscally responsible America for our children. As a freshman congressman, he didn’t just bide his time or go along to get along. He got down to work. Arizona’s largest newspaper reviewed Paul’s legislative accomplishments and concluded that “Bottom line: when it comes to sponsored bills and amendments passed by the House of Representatives, Gosar has been among the most successful new members not only in Arizona’s delegation, but also in the entire freshman class.” He’s fought hard to eliminate wasteful spending, sponsoring one bill after another to repeal wasteful programs and save the taxpayers’ money. He co-sponsored and voted for “Cut, Cap, and Balance,” and he took a tough vote to cut $2.1 trillion from the bloated federal budget, which is the largest nominal spending cut since World War II.

He’s been a leader on looking for ways to cut spending, and he’s also been a staunch fighter for the people of Arizona. Along with Congressman Darrell Issa, Paul has been laser-like in pursuing the truth about the “Operation Fast and Furious” scandal, and Paul is the sponsor of a resolution of no confidence in Attorney General Holder. He’s also defended the interests of Arizonans in taking on the Obama administration’s over-reaching EPA bureaucrats.

I think you can see why he has the support of so many Arizonans – from Governor Jan Brewer to Senator Jon Kyl. I was proud to endorse Paul Gosar two years ago, and I believe he more than deserves to return to Congress to continue his good work for Arizona’s new 4th Congressional District. I hope you’ll join me in supporting Paul and donating and volunteering for him. This is one conservative public servant you can be certain will be working hard for you and getting positive results.

You can learn more about Congressman Gosar or donate to his campaign here.

.Kirk Adams for Arizona’s 5th Congressional District

  • If you believe strongly in the need to repeal Obamacare, I hope you’ll join me in supporting Kirk Adams for Congress in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District. Kirk is determined to repeal this mother of all unfunded mandates. And when he gets to Washington he won’t just “join the fight” to repeal Obamacare, he’ll help lead it.As one of the youngest Speakers in the history of the Arizona House of Representatives, Kirk led the fight for less government spending, lower taxes, individual freedom, and limited government. As a small businessman, he knows firsthand that entrepreneurship and small businesses (which many of us built ourselves, Mr. President) are the job creating engine of our economy. Kirk is a proven advocate of removing the crushing burdens of excessive government regulation on our small businesses, and in Congress he will fight to put government back on our side and not in our way.Kirk has been a steadfast supporter of sound immigration laws and was a leading defender of Arizona citizens as he used his platform to accurately describe this state’s predicament to the rest of America. He was the one who helped us all understand how dangerously misguided President Obama is on state’s rights and the rule of law! When President Obama called Arizona’s law “misguided” and then far removed politicians urged a “boycott” of Arizona, Kirk boldly stood up for his state! He became a loud and proud voice against the unsuccessful boycotts as he passionately wrote here:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/27/AR2010052702527.html

    His tireless efforts worked.

    Please join me in supporting Kirk Adams for Congress today.

Jeff Flake Announces Governor Palin’s Endorsement (U.S. Senate, Arizona)

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 23, 2012

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

According to Jeff Flake’s campaign website, Governor Palin has given Flake her endorsement in his run for the U.S. Senate (Arizona):

The Flake campaign announced today that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has endorsed Jeff Flake for United States Senate. Jeff Flake sought Governor Palin’s support and is honored to have it.

In a letter to Jeff, Governor Palin wrote: “The United States Senate needs a leader like Jeff Flake. Jeff is a proven conservative crusader, and today I am proud to announce mysupport for his campaign to become the next U.S. Senator from the great state of Arizona.

“Throughout his tenure in Congress, Jeff has been a consistent leader against the federal government’s out of control spending. Jeff is known for his media releases titled ‘Just How Broke Are We?’ where he brings home the reality of what our unimaginable $15 trillion debt really means in everyday terms. For the past eight years, Jeff has been ranked #1 in the House of Representatives by the National Taxpayers Union for his efforts against wasteful government spending.

“Credited by many as the leading anti-earmark crusader in the House, Jeff has fought hard against pork barrel spending – often times casting one of the few GOP ‘no’ votes on bloated spending measures. He’s not afraid to ‘go rogue’ against his own party and its leadership; and even though he has sometimes suffered the consequences from GOP leaders for failing to toe the party line, yet he continues to fight for what is right.

“I’ve spoken often about the need for sudden and relentless reform of government. Jeff is just the sort of ‘relentless reformer’ we need in the Senate. He will bring his fight against our crippling debt, reckless spending, and wasteful earmarks to the Senate. Watch this video at www.mrflaketakesonwashington.com, and you’ll see why I am joining with Senators McCain & Kyl to support Jeff Flake for U.S. Senate.”

Jeff Flake responded to the endorsement, saying: “I am very gratified to receive the support of Governor Palin today. Governor Palin is a passionate conservative who has inspired many in the cause to reform Washington. I have always shared her healthy aversion to wasteful spending and out of control bureaucracy. Again, I am pleased to have her confidence in this campaign.”

Playing Politics with Pain

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 10, 2011

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

The games people play. I hate them. And what I’ve seen the last couple days since the horrific shooting in Arizona has given me a deeper, more vehement hatred for them.

Maybe it’s my naivete. Maybe it’s the fact that I didn’t grow up immersed in the dirt of politics. Whatever it is, I simply cannot wrap my brain around people using human tragedy for political posturing. I’ve sort of sat on this since Saturday, but the churning in my stomach and the weight upon my chest necessitate that I speak up. Perhaps you’ve heard others weigh in on some of the same issues, but I must have my say…

The thought that a public official meeting with constituents could be so cruelly gunned down is unfathomable. The sound of parents mourning the loss of their nine year old girl, who wanted only to see how her government works, breaks my heart. These are just two of the victims. So many lives have been forever impacted by the evil act of Jared Loughner. I continue to pray for all involved, for as much as words, cards, and vigils are appreciated, only God can bring peace at a time like this.

I am reminded, however, during this time, of how much I have abhorred politics for most of my life. I am certainly no wet behind the ears, pie in the sky juvenile, but I must admit that I expected better of people than what I am seeing. In spite of the endless hours of news coverage, the emails, and the Facebook rants, I still cannot grasp how people could use such a tragedy to push a narrative that they know isn’t true. And surely they must know. No rational human being can justify blaming Governor Palin for the shootings that took place. No rational human being can really offer a case that Loughner–a mentally sick, unstable man–performed his evil act because Governor Palin, using a common political symbol, asked the American people to vote Congresswoman Giffords out of office. Although they played it up like they did–because it was politically advantageous–no one really thought when she posted the surveryor map months ago that she was advocating violence. They knew better then, and anyone with a shred of common sense knows better now.

However, it’s a game for these people. This is the opportunity they’ve been waiting for. This is their chance, as they see it, to silence Governor Palin–and they don’t care if doing so means playing politics with pain. They don’t care about Congresswoman Giffords, Christina-Taylor Green, the nine year old slain girl, or even the facts. They only care about gaining political advantage. Check mate! King me! Bingo! These are the words gameplayers say, isn’t it, when they have reached one of their most desired goals? Such is the case here. And that’s what turns my stomach.

Violence is real. Pain shatters. Jared Loughner is a mad man who ALONE is responsible for the carnage left at Safeway in Arizona. But good people like Governor Palin, Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh are blamed.

Why is it that after the Fort Hood shooting, President Obama and journalists, among others, urged Americans not to jump to conclusions but are not urging the same restraint in this case? Instead, people rushed in to pin this one man’s heinous crime on the Tea Party and Governor Palin.

Byron York reports:

There was ample evidence, in other words, that the Ft. Hood attack was an act of Islamist violence.

Nevertheless, public officials, journalists, and commentators were quick to caution that the public should not “jump to conclusions” about Hasan’s motive. CNN, in particular, became a forum for repeated warnings that the subject should be discussed with particular care.

“The important thing is for everyone not to jump to conclusions,” said retired Gen. Wesley Clark on CNN the night of the shootings.

“We cannot jump to conclusions,” said CNN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell that same evening. “We have to make sure that we do not jump to any conclusions whatsoever.”

“I’m on Pentagon chat room,” said former CIA operative Robert Baer on CNN, also the night of the shooting. “Right now, there’s messages going back and forth, saying do not jump to the conclusion this had anything to do with Islam.”

The next day, President Obama underscored the rapidly-forming conventional wisdom when he told the country, “I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.” In the days that followed, CNN jouralists and guests repeatedly echoed the president’s remarks.

“We can’t jump to conclusions,” Army Gen. George Casey said on CNN November 8. The next day, political analyst Mark Halperin urged a “transparent” investigation into the shootings “so the American people don’t jump to conclusions.” And when Republican Rep. Pete Hoekstra, then the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, suggested that the Ft. Hood attack was terrorism, CNN’s John Roberts was quick to intervene. “Now, President Obama has asked people to be very cautious here and to not jump to conclusions,” Roberts said to Hoekstra. “By saying that you believe this is an act of terror, are you jumping to a conclusion?”

Fast forward a little more than a year, to January 8, 2011. In Tucson, Arizona, a 22 year-old man named Jared Lee Loughner opened fire at a political event, gravely wounding Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, killing a federal judge and five others, and wounding 18. In the hours after the attack, little was known about Loughner beyond some bizarre and largely incomprehensible YouTube postings that, if anything, suggested he was mentally ill. Yet the network that had shown such caution in discussing the Ft. Hood shootings openly discussed the possibility that Loughner was inspired to violence by…Sarah Palin. Although there is no evidence that Loughner was in any way influenced by Palin, CNN was filled with speculation about the former Alaska governor.

Read more here.

In truth, Governor Palin needs no defense. She has done nothing wrong. I’ll just say this: the Governor Palin I know and respect loves her God, loves her family, loves her country. She would never advocate violence of any kind. Those who are using this incident to target her and pretend she’s responsible for violence are the ones inciting violence. She has been on the receiving end of threats for a long time now, but just since Saturday’s shooting, she has been the target of even more sickening vitriol and threats. The people who so dishonestly are blaming her for the actions of Loughner are hypocrites, liars, and dangerous people, and I have heard from these people in the last few days–via email, via twitter. They make me sick.

The following YouTube video, courtesy of Breitbart.tv, exposes death wishes and threats made on Twitter. Be forewarned: the language is disgusting and the messages sick, but these are people accusing her of advocating violence. Such glaring, heart-rending hypocrisy:

See, this is the game I’m talking about. Radical haters are using the pain that families, colleagues, a state, and a nation are dealing with to promote their own agenda. They feel justified now, it seems, in their own desire to rid the planet of Governor Palin, despite the fact that there is absolutely no rationale for such thinking. Let’s take a look at their sick game, as reported by Politico:

One veteran Democratic operative, who blames overheated rhetoric for the shooting, said President Barack Obama should carefully but forcefully do what his predecessor did.

“They need to deftly pin this on the tea partiers,” said the Democrat. “Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.”

The truth of the matter is this guy was no tea partier. He was a nut. As Jim Hoft writes:

The shooter was a pro-Marxist, anti-flag, anti-Constitution, anti-religious crackpot. He was hardly a tea partier.

Newsmax.com points out:

The left’s systematic ridicule of Sarah Palin and other conservatives following the Arizona shooting rampage reflects a deliberate campaign to “ultimately criminalize” conservative thought in America, according to media watchdog L. Brent Bozell.

[…]

Bozell said such efforts to blame the Tucson massacre on conservatives reflect a broader agenda.

“This is a part of a campaign to delegitimize, and ultimately criminalize, conservative thought in this country,” Bozell said. “Note how quickly The New York Times came out with an editorial calling for the Fairness Doctrine as a result of this.

“I mean, anything to pin to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin or the Tea Party … anybody on the conservative side, to delegitimize them, that’s what they’re going to do. That’s the tactics of the far left.”

Truth always comes out. The truth is that this man has no connection to the Tea Party or Governor Palin. He is a nut, was refused by the military, and is a drug abuser. He has been in trouble with the law before and was kicked out of college because his bizarre behavior was a serious concern. His interest in Rep. Giffords isn’t something new. He has been obsessed with her since 2007. His actions weren’t the result of some so-called political rhetoric. His actions stemmed from the fact that he has serious issues that went unaddressed. His college professor and former classmates are now speaking out about how odd he was, how dangerous he appeared, and how unsafe he made them feel. But somehow Governor Palin and other conservatives are responsible? Give me a break.

Again, unlike the far-Left loons who choose to politicize pain while advocating violence themselves, Governor Palin hates violence, has stated time and time again that violence is no solution, and has no connection whatsoever to Jared Loughner. Disagree with her on issues, if you must. But enough of playing this political game of accusing her of murder, a game as sick and demented as the shooter himself.

Today on his radio show, Glenn Beck discussed communicating with Governor Palin this weekend via email. He shared these words she wrote to him:

I hate violence. I hate war. Our children will not have peace if politicos just capitalize on this to succeed in portraying anyone as inciting terror and violence. Thanks for all you do to send the message of truth and love and God as the answer.

This is the real Governor Palin. This is the person–the public servant–I support. The games need to stop. The politicizing of pain to coerce certain people to sit down and shut up will be exposed for what it is.

I stand against this reprehensible, deplorable behavior. I stand with Governor Palin.

(h/t to many truth-loving people, too numerous to name, who have been on top of this issue)

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ Shooter

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 8, 2011

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

Police have Jared Loughner in custody for the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona. Several others have been wounded and killed. While police originally believed Loughner to have acted alone, they are now looking for another person whom they believe was involved, although they do not believe he pulled the trigger.

Thank God, the word we’re receiving is that while Rep. Giffords is in critical condition, she is responding, after being shot at point blank range in the head. Doctors are “optimistic” about her recovery. Unfortunately, among the dead are a nine year old girl and Judge John Roll, who simply stopped by to shake a few hands and say hello to Rep. Giffords.

According to information pouring in, Loughner is mentally “unstable,” has been in trouble with the law before, and was rejected by the U.S Army. Reports state that he was disgruntled with literacy in Arizona–blaming the government for trying to control grammar, has posted strange Youtube videos, and claims Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf as his favorite books.

It is unfortunate–to say the least–that people rushed to politicize such a tragedy. My heart goes out to those who are affected by this disgusting act today, and it turns my stomach when some have no concern for life but would rather use such events to advance their own blame game. As facts come in, police now know that this murderer targeted the Congresswoman specifically, and someone who knows him states that he was not connected to the Tea Party movement or Governor Palin, as some people–sickeningly–were all too ready to suggest. State Senator Linda Lopez should be ashamed of herself for taking to Fox News today to blame the tea party.

Information is being continually updated. In the meantime, please let’s continue to pray, everyone.

Bristol Palin becomes a homeowner… in Arizona

Posted by joshpainter on December 24, 2010

– by Josh Painter
*
Bristol Palin, Todd and Sarah’s eldest daughter (at the ripe old age of 20), now owns a home in Maricopa, a Phoenix suburb in the Gila River Valley of Pinal County, according to a report by The Arizona Republic’s John Faherty:

Public records show the home was built in 2006 and bought for $329,560. It went into foreclosure in January of this year.

The home was then purchased in May for $137,200 by Michael and Cynthia Smith, a couple from North Dakota, as an investment.

They fixed it up and put it back on the market.

Bristol Palin bought it this month for $172,000 in cash.

[…]

“I’m not sure why she wanted to buy that home, but we are real happy for her,” said Michael Smith, 55.

“She seems like a nice girl. We’re excited for her.”

[More]

Bristol’s mom, Faherty observes, has been a frequent visitor to Arizona since she first met with Sen. John McCain at his ranch in Sedona to discuss joining his ticket in the 2008 presidential election. Now she has a place to stay for future visits to The Grand Canyon State.
