Palin: No New Taxes: “We’ll Be Watching!”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on December 13, 2013

Palin_amflag_speech

Gov. Palin has penned a piece over at Breitbart  in which she artfully  makes the case as to why we are “Taxed Enough Already” and issues a warning to D.C. politicians on their votes for this compromised budget bill– “We’ll be watching.”

From Breitbart:

No one can argue with the fact that Paul Ryan’s compromise budget bill raises taxes and increases spending. Show me one Republican who got elected on that platform. Spare America the Orwellian word games. If the government is taking money out of your pocket to fund its growing Big Brother operations, it’s a tax. Whether money is taken from you via your phone bill, your airline ticket, or your income, it’s a tax. If politicians can’t be honest about this, it’s time to go home.

The TEA Party’s very acronym stands for “Taxed Enough Already.” We sent these politicians to Congress in an historic landslide election in 2010 with a mandate to stop the runaway spending train bankrupting our nation, not to wave to it from the station or – heaven forbid – increase its speed. And yet, here we are still pretending that there are no real world consequences to running up near trillion dollar deficits year after year with no end in sight.

So, where does this leave us? We can sit back and accept the increased spending “Compromised Plan” with increases in taxes and spending, or we can charge ahead to at least preserve the very modest Sequester cuts American workers already fought for. If we go with the first option, we simply kick the can down the road yet again and wait for the inevitable real world consequences of bankruptcy (see Detroit for an example of what’s in store). Or we can go with the second option and probably get clobbered by the media (so what’s new?!).

The Political Establishment will no doubt tell us that a budget battle will distract us from the fight against Obamacare. But that excuse is just the latest variation in the Establishment’s old canard that they’re keeping their powder dry for the next big battle which never seems to materialize because they’re always too busy waving the white flag and following the path of least resistance until election day.

Enough is enough!

Here’s the deal, folks. The media will clobber us no matter what. We do not want more taxes. We want Congress to rein in spending and live within its means. (What’s so radical about that?!) Americans have gotten quite an education recently in wasteful government spending as we’ve all seen how the federal government can blow a billion dollars on a website that doesn’t work.

Do these members of Congress really think they can justify every tax dollar they spend and still demand more from hard working Americans by increasing our taxes?

2014 is just around the corner. If any member of Congress thinks raising taxes and increasing wasteful spending is a winning strategy to run on, then by all means they should vote for the Ryan budget. We’ll be watching.

PALIN: Will We Stand for This?

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 22, 2013

Breitbart_oped_image

“These Obama administration scandals are a sad and stark reminder that only limited government can ensure liberty.”

Breitbart has published the following op-ed from Sarah Palin. She asks the right question, that being, “will we stand for this”?

Going Rogue in the Wrong Direction

As more information about the IRS scandal trickles out daily, the White House’s involvement is becoming clearer. Those of us who’ve been warning about the demise of freedom with Barack Obama’s efforts to “fundamentally transform” our great nation are about to witness some sad vindication. Will awakened Americans finally join us in saying “enough is enough”?

The president would like us to believe that he only learned about the IRS corruption from watching the news. But we recently learned that the White House was actively working with the IRS on how to roll out the story of this scandal. So, Mr. President, how can you have your staff work on the roll out of the biggest controversy since Watergate, and yet claim that you only heard about it by watching the news with the rest of us?

For the president to deny any knowledge of what was brewing and to claim to know nothing about the Benghazi cover-up or anything about anything White House-related lately, he’s either a liar or a hugely incompetent CEO. You decide.

Yesterday, we also learned that the top IRS official involved in the targeting scandal is planning on pleading the Fifth during her Congressional hearings. That’s keen – she’ll be able to enjoy her Fifth Amendment rights in a hearing about how her intimidating organization denied Americans the ability to fully exercise their First Amendment rights.

Keep in mind that the IRS considers you guilty until proven innocent when they audit you.  The Fifth Amendment doesn’t apply.

This scandal is not just about the IRS targeting Americans to deny them tax-except status or subjecting them to harassing retaliatory audits. The IRS also leaked to left-wing reporters the confidential application information submitted by conservative groups.

The IRS claims that their leaking of information was “inadvertent and unintentional disclosures by the employees involved.” They at first blamed the entire IRS scandal on a couple of employees who “went rogue,” but we soon found out that this was just more malarkey coming from the president’s spokesman. But even if these were “inadvertent and unintentional disclosures,” is that supposed to make us feel better? With the IRS running Obamacare, what are the chances that our confidential information and medical records will “inadvertently” and “unintentionally” be disclosed? Please remember that some of us warned America about the dangers of having the IRS play such a big role with the administration of Obamacare. We were laughed at and mocked relentlessly back then. It sure doesn’t seem funny now, does it?

This IRS scandal is especially terrible because Americans live in fear of the IRS like no other entity because this monstrous bureaucracy has the power to take your hard-earned money. Your wages are the sum of your labors; hence, the IRS has the power to steal the fruits of your labors. Average Americans live in fear of making an error on their tax returns that could cost them massive amounts of money, plus their reputation and good name.  If a small business makes a mistake, the IRS can shut them down and send them to jail.

The IRS has always been the face of intimidating and controlling big government. Now it’s the face of corrupt big government that actively attacks the people it is supposed to serve. This isn’t the change America was hoping for, Mr. President, but it certainly is transformative.

Average everyday Americans like my dad and his non-political buddies are outraged by this IRS scandal, perhaps more so than all the other White House fiascos that are making the radical Left’s intentions crystal clear. It’s because this IRS cluster hits close to home for everyone. It’s tangible proof of how a corrupt government can intimidate and target a person’s record, reputation, and life, and make them feel helpless.

These Obama administration scandals are a sad and stark reminder that only limited government can ensure liberty. At our core, we Americans just want to be left alone to live freely, peacefully, and productively.  More

Governor Palin’s Exceptional Speech to New Media at RightOnline Conference

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 16, 2012

Photos retrieved from Twitter.

Governor Palin delivered an exceptional speech at the RightOnline conference last night.  It was packed with Palinesque nuggets and covered a gamut of Barack Obama’s  transgressions as well as the failures and obfuscations of the old media.  As Tony Lee pointed out, it was a “call to arms to the online ‘Army of Davids’ in its battle against the Goliath that is the ‘lamestream media’.”

Although the entire speech is noteworthy and one of Governor Palin’s best, here are the top 10 quotes picked by Tony Lee in his article at Big Government:

Palin showed once again how she, like Breitbart, could inspire conservatives, be funny, and mock liberals in a way that allows her message to cut through the mainstream media’s filter.

Here are the top ten quotes from her address.

1. On not being co-opted by the permanent political class

Sometimes you gotta rage against the machine … to hold them accountable … Whatever the outcome is in November, please do not get co-opted by the permanent political class. Granted you will not make many friends in the Beltway or in Hollywood … or in HBO … you won’t be one of the cool kids … doggone it … aww … sometimes you’ll find yourself under the bus … but you need to stay outside of the machines … sometimes you gotta rage against it … stay outside of the political establishments in order to hold them accountable … don’t spin the GOP failures the same way the left does for President Obama …

2. On Andrew Breitbart’s legacy of fearlessness

As we honor Andrew Breitbart, remember his greatest gift he left for us is fearlessness … and I would hope … that you would be able to reload with that inspiration of his fearlessness … stand your ground and others will stand with you .. courage inspires courage .. victory begets victory … don’t retreat, reload with that inspiration.

3. On Matt Drudge and his clairvoyance 

The new media rose up precisely because the old media failed to tell the truth. That very first new media breakthrough was about 15 years ago when this lowly little store clerk in a lowly little apartment equipped with his computer and a modem broke one of the biggest stories of the decade. His name was Matt Drudge and the rest is history. And in hindsight, we see that the story he broke was more than just a president having an affair. To me it was much, much more than that. It was about a major old media publication that had spiked the story eleven times. And they knew all about it. Eleven times! Not just once to check their facts. Not twice just to double-check. Eleven times they spiked the story. Why? Because as charter members of that Democrat Media Complex they were protecting their guy. So, when a fellow with a modem and a website found out about this, he decided to tell the truth they refused to tell. And oh how that old media cried foul and they howled. They denounced Drudge as irresponsible and unprofessional and even dangerous and anti-everything from motherhood to apple pie. How dare that nobody from nowhere without a degree or a pedigree try to influence the national discourse. But the real reason they feared him was because he wasn’t beholden to the old media’s machine and the Thought Police. Unshackled, he was free. And a few months later, Drudge got to speak at the National Press Club in DC. He predicted the future in his speech there. He said, “We have entered an era vibrating with the din of small voices. Every citizen can be a reporter, can take on the powers that be….I envision a future where there’ll be 300 million reporters, where anyone from anywhere can report for any reason. It’s freedom of participation absolutely realized.” Thus the birth of citizen journalism, and you are the future he predicted!

4. On national security leaks and augmented figures in polls

But if they had done their job perhaps we would not be shocked to know that our White House would politicize national security by leaking highly confidential information to prop up their polls. Now here we are in Vegas. And in Vegas — and in Washington too — they talk a lot about polls. There are a lot of poles in Vegas. The White House likes to cite polls  … because the figures involved in those polls are usually augmented too …

5. On the Tea Party’s steel spine

You showed D.C. what having a spine looks like. Or, as I said that day in Wisconsin, you showed them how to ‘fight like a girl.’

6.  On the mainstream media’s failure to vet Obama 

Had the media done its job … we would have known of his association with anti-American intellectuals and then not be surprised at his desire to apologize for America to foreign dictators, or that he is the first President of the United States in history to not believe we are an exceptional nation …

7. On Obama’s failed energy strategy

So as we’re preaching ‘drill, baby drill’ … and he’s preaching ‘stop, baby stop’ …

8. Teasing Obama for having eaten a dog in his youth in Indonesia 

Why did they (the mainstream media) at least not read his autobiography? … they would have learned a whole lot … about pot smoking and cocaine smoking and what he ate … Fido. Rufus. … I find it funny that I get a hard time for eating elk and moose … come on, does anybody have a pet moose? There’s a difference.

9. On the power of truth 

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

10. On being influencers in pop culture 

Breitbart said ‘culture is upstream of politics’ … it’s not selling out, it’s infiltrating and influencing.
