Dick Cheney Confuses Governor Palin with President Obama

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 29, 2012

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

My Conservatives4Palin colleague, Steve Flesher, addressed Dick Cheney’s ridiculous comments about the selection of Governor Palin as Senator McCain’s running mate. First, let me say I find it very disheartening that the GOP establishment continues to attack the one person who has taken more slings and arrows than anyone else as she tries to save this country from what President Obama has done to it. She has done nothing but put herself on the line time and time again–withstanding the lies, the sexism, the intrusions into her privacy, the attacks on her children, the death threats, the skewing of her record, the questioning of her intelligence, the misrepresentations, and the list goes on.

Nonetheless, Governor Palin fights. She fights because she loves this country, and she knows it’ll take a fight to restore this country. Like so many others, Dick Cheney responds with the typical bull and the same old faulty talking points. Perhaps he should save his criticism for President Obama and show the former Vice Presidential candidate a little respect.

Here’s what Cheney said:

I don’t think she passed that test … of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake.

Flesher handled this well over at C4P:

The news of Cheney’s interview airing on ABC tomorrow morning (Monday) on GMA is making its Sunday-rounds. The MSM couldn’t be happier.

While the entire interview has yet to be released, it appears Mr. Cheney has decided to do his part for his establishment-buddies by attacking his own party’s last VP nominee in lieu of going after the nation’s biggest elected mistake of all time – Barack Obama.

[…]

Apparently, Palin’s not “ready” to sit in an administration for eight years which adds 5 trillion dollars to our unpaid debt basically demoralizing the spirit of conservatism leading to four years of Barack Obama. Cheney was “ready” for that, wasn’t he?

Palin’s not “ready” to engage in cronyism which dictates who she’d appoint to lifetime positions on the Supreme Court or to head federal emergency agencies like FEMA. Bush & Cheney were “ready” for that, weren’t they?

Palin is “ready” to balance a budget – since she did it in Alaska.

Palin is “ready” to increase benefits for our esteemed elders while cutting out wasteful spending existing all across our federal government – since she did similar things in Alaska.

Palin is “ready” to call out entrenched special interests like she did when she served up a little justice to the Republican Party’s good old boys and their dealings with big oil. She did that in Alaska, too.

Palin’s “ready” to unabashedly call out Barack Obama. This includes pointing out his past associations, his reckless squandering of billions of our dollars to pay back his Wall Street friends (just as Bush/Cheney once did), and his plans to whip Americans into Greece-like big-government submission. This is in contrast to the establishment’s plans to hold back.

Palin’s “ready” to endorse countless candidates for the Congress. She’s been successful at using her enormous grassroots influence to pull a great deal of them across the finish line.

Palin’s not ready to fall in line with the establishment. Until any candidate (including our perceived “front-runner”) demonstrates a full willingness to truly unify with the party’s grassroots, don’t count on her to make deals behind closed doors or hold high-priced fundraisers at her home.

Considering everything Bush & Company were “ready” for, it’s no wonder why Barack Obama was ever put in the position of becoming President of our great Republic. Now of course, he must be fired.

Read Steve Flesher’s full article here.

Doug Brady added an update to Steve’s piece, a tweet by Cheney’s daughter, Liz, in disagreement with the position her father has taken:

The article also quotes others who have the common sense to note that Governor Palin was more than qualified to be elected and certainly more qualified than the person who was elected as President. And lest we forget, she had more administrative experience than everyone on both tickets.

So let’s move on–with the facts–and remember that President Obama is the opponent, not Governor Palin. It is he who was “not ready to take over,” but we elected him nonetheless. That was the mistake. And we’re paying the price.

The aftermath of Sarah saying NO

Posted by Roderic Deane on October 9, 2011

Monologue from today’s Roderic Deane Show:

It’s been a tough week for Palinistas out there, including me. With the exception of a few concerning comments Sarah made in a recent conversation with Greta van Susteren, I still expected her to jump in to the race for the GOP nomination. Instead, she announced on Wednesday that she will not be seeking the GOP nomination, nor would she mount a challenge on a third-party ticket.

In her speech to Liberty University yesterday, she said:

After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States. As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order.

She went on to say:

From the bottom of my heart I thank those who have supported me and defended my record throughout the years, and encouraged me to run for President. Know that by working together we can bring this country back – and as I’ve always said, one doesn’t need a title to help do it.

So, does that end it?

For me, the answer is NO. Sarah released her statement and, at the very same time, joined Mark Levin at the very beginning of his radio show. During her conversation with Mark, she stressed that fact that she will be out there helping common-sense conservatives get elected and doing everything she can to put an end to the Obama administration. I think that deserves at least one, big fist-pump, don’t you?

Entertaining the thought of running for the Presidency has to be a daunting thing, especially for someone who views public service with “a servant’s heart”. I think we can all attest to the fact that blind ambition fueled the rise of Barack Obama. What’s chilling is the fact that he pursued the Presidency after voting “present” on many, many issues. Now that he’s in the Oval Office, what has he done?

Well, for starters, he gave Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Timothy Geithner free reign to write the trillion-dollar stimulus bill, which, I might add, had absolutely no effect on our economy. After that, he abdicated his leadership and allowed Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to write his own signature legislation, which we now call Obamacare. Now, he expects Congress to pass his jobs bill, which is just more of the same spend, spend, spend mentality!

Today, as we witness the protests on Wall Street and other financial centers throughout the United States, we must keep in mind one thing. Barack Obama’s roots are as a “community organizer”, or, better put, a community agitator. He has purposely supported anti-capitalist protests by giving sympathy to their cause, suggesting that their grievances are legitimate. By so doing, he has supports anti-American sentiment in our own country.

The irony of these protests comes with the death of Steve Jobs, founder and visionary leader of Apple Computers. Steve Jobs exemplified the power of free-market capitalism to transform our lives and yet the protesters want to limit an entrepreneur’s ability to succeed. Their stated goal is to strip the entrepreneur of the rewards of his or her success by levying a heavy tax on a company’s profits. In essence, they want to eliminate the entrepreneur’s motivation to succeed. This is complete madness!

To give these protesters a little history, Apple Computers was started in the garage of Steve Jobs with the help of Steve Wozniak. Together, these two individuals revolutionized the computer industry in ways that historians will look back on in amazement. As of the latest reports on the company, Apple Computers employs 49,400 people, 12,000 at their corporate headquarters alone.

If anything, we should be cheering on the entrepreneur. They are the ones who will bring our economy out of this terrible slump, not government.

Having said that, I think we need to be supportive of Sarah Palin’s decision not to seek the office of the Presidency. There has been a lot of caterwauling by a number of her supporters since her decision was announced. The has to stop. As Sarah said yesterday:

“You trust me to be leader of the free world but you don’t trust my decision? Come on!”

We need to trust Sarah now, as we have in the past. I have no doubt that she’s got some plans up her sleeve that will make us all proud.

…and that’s my two-cents worth for the week.

Governor Palin Teaches History–Again

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 4, 2011

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

Over and over again, people who try to prove that Governor Palin is stupid show themselves to be the epitome of the same. One of these most famous times was when she mentioned partying like it’s 1773. The media and blogosphere got all wee-wee’d up–pointing, laughing, jumping up and down–only to find out that she knows a lot more about history than they do. You can read about that here. That incident was quite embarrassing, so one would think that haters would learn their lesson, check their facts, and back the heck up! But no. The result? Further embarrassment, as Governor Palin teaches yet another lesson in history.

In New Hampshire, she made the following comments about Paul Revere’s ride, which Politico’s Ben Smith was all too giddy to mock:

He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.

Smith then took a cheap shot at Governor Palin in his post. He writes:

Palin makes [Michele] Bachmann look like Longfellow.

Clever, Mr. Smith. And he wasn’t the only clever clown. Jason Easley of PoliticusUSA donned a red nose and big shoes, too.

He reports:

How many of these gaffes should we allow Sarah Palin to get away with?

[…]

Sarah Palin has absolutely no idea what she is talking about, yet she thinks she is qualified to be the President of the United States. When Palin spews her own incorrect version of history, we have a duty as Americans to correct it. As Sarah Palin considers running for president, we have a duty to report on her real words and deeds.

Mr. Smith and Mr. Easley, both obviously history-challenged, could learn a thing or two from the Governor. Certainly, they are not in position to correct anything. Lesson number 1, boys: tuck your tails between your legs and walk away quietly. Since they are so very invested in correcting wrongs, I’m sure they appreciate that Whitney Pitcher did just that, setting the historical record straight.

Whitney writes:

Those quibbling with Governor Palin’s statements have their history incomplete. During Paul Revere’s ride he was stopped by British soldiers, which Revere recounts in a 1789 letter maintained by the Massachusetts Historical Society, in his original language (emphasis mine):

I observed a Wood at a Small distance, & made for that. When I got there, out Started Six officers, on Horse back,and orderd me to dismount;-one of them, who appeared to have the command, examined me, where I came from,& what my Name Was? I told him. it was Revere, he asked if it was Paul? I told him yes He asked me if I was an express? I answered in the afirmative. He demanded what time I left Boston? I told him; and aded, that their troops had catched aground in passing the River, and that There would be five hundred Americans there in a short time, for I had alarmed the Country all the way up. He imediately rode towards those who stoppd us, when all five of them came down upon a full gallop; one of them, whom I afterwards found to be Major Mitchel, of the 5th Regiment, Clapped his pistol to my head, called me by name, & told me he was going to ask me some questions, & if I did not give him true answers, he would blow my brains out. He then asked me similar questions to those above. He then orderd me to mount my Horse, after searching me for arms.He then orderd them to advance, & to lead me in front. When we got to the Road, they turned down towards Lexington. When we had got about one Mile, the Major Rode up to the officer that was leading me, & told him to give me to the Sergeant. As soon as he took me, the Major orderd him, if I attempted to run, or any body insulted them, to blow my brains out. We rode till we got near Lexington Meeting-house, when the Militia fired a Voley of Guns, which appeared to alarm them very much.

Upon being stopped, did Revere, in essence, warn the British soldiers of the colonists’ plans? Yes. The strawmen built by the media seems to almost indicate that Revere rode through the streets warning the British soldiers. In actuality, simply put, Paul Revere told Regulars of the colonists’ plans during his attempt to warn the colonists of the Regulars’ approach (Revere actually said, “the Regulars are coming!”. The colonist still viewed themselves as British subjects at the time and would not have said, “the British are coming”.)

Additionally, as the Paul Revere Heritage Project notes, Revere had reason for concern that the colonists’ arms would be taken away as they questioned the location of the militia’s ammunition (emphasis mine):

The Redcoats had set temporary roadblocks as a security measure and on their way to Concord they encountered British soldiers. Prescott managed to escape; Revere was captured and Dawes tried to run away but was arrested shortly thereafter. The British held Revere and interrogated him with a pistol on his chest. He was asked about the plans of the militia and where they kept their ammunition. When asked where the Patriots were hiding he told them the truth and replied that they had 500 militiamen in Concord protecting them and 1500 coming. As they rode towards Concord he was told that if he tried to escape he would be shot.

There were no claims by Governor Palin that Paul Revere’s ride had anything to do with the 2nd Amendment as some spuriously claim. She simply indicated the immediate concern of Revere and the colonists. It appears that the media once again fail to grasp the history of our Founding again. You may recall that the media were in an uproar when Governor Palin encouraged Tea Partiers to party like it’s 1773, and the media claimed she didn’t know her Revolutionary War history. Oops. Governor Palin stated that this “One Nation” bus tour would, in part, draw attention to America’s founding and history. It looks like she is doing just that.

Read Whitney’s full post here.

Legal Insurrection also chimed in to correct the record. In an article called “So Now All These People Will Apologize to Sarah Palin About Paul Revere, Right?” William Jacobson states:

As with most people, I simply took at face value the popular version that Paul Revere warned that the British were coming, the British were coming.

Not having any real reason to look into it any deeper, Sarah Palin’s statement that Revere warned the British that the colonial militias were waiting seemed odd.

But it appears that the popular version is not complete.

In fact, as pointed out at Conservatives4Palin, Revere did in fact tell the British that the colonial militias, who had been alerted, were waiting for them.

[…]

Palin’s short statement on the video was less than clear; that sometimes happens but the part of the statement which has people screaming — that Revere warned the British that the colonial militias were waiting — appears to be true.

I’ve learned something new today, about Paul Revere.

The leading lights of the left-blogosphere have made fools of themselves, as have people who are not of the left-blogosphere. I presume they all will be apologizing.

Read Jacobson’s full article here.

An apology, he suggests. Now there’s an idea. In fact, why not save time by recording it and putting the video in a readily accessible place. That way it’ll be easy to pull out the next time they need it–and surely they will.

Despite my sarcasm, this kind of stuff truly sickens me. The media follow her everywhere she goes, she graciously grants them interviews, answering every question they have about substantive issues that affect our country, and when they think they’ve happened upon a gotcha moment, they pounce. Is there any wonder good people who simply love their country shy away from public service? God bless Governor Palin. May she ever speak the truth, take a stand for what’s right, and persevere in highlighting the history of this great country.

Multiple Sources Debunk Politico’s Palin Hit Piece

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 23, 2010

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

There’s something to be said for learning from the mistakes of others. Yet when it comes to Governor Palin, people can’t seem to do that. After Michael Joseph Gross’s Vanity Fair article that brought shame on him when, one after another, real sources debunked his anonymous sources, Jonathan Martin of Politico puts himself in the same boat with his hit piece.

His article, “Sarah Palin is wreaking havoc on the campaign trail, GOP sources say” makes all types of claims about the Governor, accusing her of being difficult to work with, unaccommodating, and totally unorganized–rude and incompetent basically. He cites “sources” to substantiate his claims. His hit piece has come crashing down on his head, and a retraction and apology are in order. Many are calling for just that.

He claims, for example, that she has rudely backed out of interviews with Mark Levin and Glenn Beck. Lies! In fact, Beck calls it an “out and out lie.” Outraged, here’s what he said about this “trash”:

Error
This video doesn’t exist

Mark Levin calls the piece “a flat out lie” and says “Sarah Palin never backed out of any interview with me.” Listen:

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny…ya just made big mistake lying about Levin, Beck, Rush…U can lie about me, but taking on the Big Guns? Not smart

The hit piece also states that Governor Palin snubbed the Grassley and King campaigns in Iowa. Lies! My fellow blogger and truth seeker, Shane Vander Hart, contacted them himself. This is what Shane wrote (emphasis added):

Eric Woolson, spokesperson for Senator Chuck Grassley’s campaign, for the record said, that the anonymous source “does not represent the Senator’s views.” So evidently Senator Grassley was not displeased with any interaction they had with the Palin camp.

[…]

I have yet to contact the Iowa GOP and will follow-up, but I did talk with Jeff King with Congressman King’s campaign he said that they “didn’t have any inkling that we’d get her for a rally. We would love to have her though.” He said they did not expect that it would work out. He said nobody from their campaign talked with Martin and they certainly don’t have any complaints about Palin.

Click here to read Shane Vander Hart’s full article, which Governor Palin retweeted yesterday.

Not only is Jonathan Martin’s no-name sources lying, even the named sources debunk his claims.

Various other sources, including Big Journalism, also demand a retraction or blast this piece of crap that Politico calls journalism. C4P even received the following from Charlie Davis, CEO of the Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC). It’s an email they sent to Martin himself:

Hey Jonathan,

Hope you’re doing well. Just read your article on Palin and wanted to add my two cents. (this wasn’t requested by anybody and feel free to quote me if you’d like)

As you know the 2010 SRLC was the largest Republican Leadership Conference in 30 years, with more speakers, more press and more attendees than ever before. Governor Palin’s staff was incredibly easy to deal with and very professional.

I interacted with every major GOP personality in the country leading up to the conference and can tell you first hand that the only thing different about Governor Palin was the intensity of the interest from the attendees, sponsors and even other speakers.

She’s easily the most requested surrogate our party has and it’s a shame that Republicans would rather gripe that they can’t get more of her time instead of being appreciative of everything that she does do.

Charlie Davis
President and CEO
2010 Southern Republican Leadership Conference

Today, Governor Palin discussed the issue with Glenn Beck on his radio show. Her modus operandi is to call it as she sees it, so she called Martin a “punk.”

Retrieved from C4P, who retrieved it from The Right Scoop, here you go:

This post is just a buffet of information gathered from my colleagues who care about truth and honesty, who are committed to holding people accountable for what they say and do. The behavior of some who fancy themselves professionals is deplorable. More than that, it’s just plain stupid. These people simply never learn their lesson, nor do they learn from those who have tried the same tactics and failed–over and over again. Palin Derangement Syndrome, with its accompanying fear and desperation, have disabled all their reasoning capabilities.

Those of you who are not yet convinced that there is an all-out determination to destroy Governor Palin, no matter what, please open your eyes. If you really care about truth, embrace it, and work to expose and destroy its enemies everywhere they surface. Governor Palin would be the first to tell you that the words she speaks and the actions she exemplifies should be evaluated as others’ are. However, the lies, the slander, and the attacks on her character are beyond the pale. What her character assassins are not willing to accept, however, is that none of it will cause her to wander off message, cower in fear, or retreat. It only fires her up even more–and fires up those of us who stand in her corner.

Onward and upward…

CBS’ Scott Conroy Interviews Me & Other Palin Supporters

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 3, 2010

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

Scott Conroy, journalist for CBS and co-author of Sarah from Alaska, interviewed me and several Palin supporters and published his story today on CBSNews.com. His story relied mainly on interviews conducted with members of 1) Hillbuzz, the ardent Hillary Clinton and now Palin supporters and 2) Conservatives4Palin, for which I also write.

Given the fact that it’s CBS, one should take note of how fair the overall piece is. It details the Governor’s appeal to a diverse population of Americans and captures the ability she possesses to inspire them to action.

From the C4P family, he interviewed Nicole Coulter, Sapwolf, site co-founder Rebecca Mansour, who now works for Governor Palin, and yours truly.

The article is quite long, so I will give you an overview. I encourage you to click here to read Conroy’s full piece.

Most importantly, there may be no other politician who retains the level of devotion that Palin enjoys among millions of Americans. They may be in the minority, but they are certainly not lacking in zeal.

“We would literally walk across hot broken glass for this woman,” says Nicole Coulter (at left), a frequent contributor to the most prominent pro-Palin web site, Conservatives4Palin.com, which serves as an up-to-the-second source of news and analysis of all things Palin. “She represents something very powerful. It’s deeper than politics. It’s much, much deeper than politics. It’s cultural. It’s just this zeitgeist of raw emotion, kind of what our country is all about.”

Of course, other national politicians attract passionate support, but with Palin’s biggest fans, the devotion to the former Alaska governor resides on a deeply personal level that seems unique in American life.

“She’s our family, and you protect your family; it’s like the mafia,” Coulter says. “She’s just one of us, and when they insult her, they’re insulting millions of us.”

[…]

Thirty-nine-year-old seventh grade English teacher Adrienne Ross (at left) started her pro-Palin web site, MotivationTruth, soon after Election Day in 2008. In July of 2009, Ross left her home in Hudson, New York, for a month-long trip to Alaska. It was a Palin pilgrimage of sorts that doubled as a sightseeing trip.

“I was really drawn to go,” says Ross, who is also a member of the Federal Election Commission-registered 2012 Draft Sarah Committee. “This might seem kind of strange, but I just felt to go. I felt like I was supposed to go.”

Ross marched in the Fourth of July parade in Wasilla with Palin’s parents and daughter Piper and was there at the picnic in Fairbanks when Palin handed over the state’s reigns of power to incoming Gov. Sean Parnell.

[…]

“She is a big part of my life,” Ross says. “I spend a lot of my time on Palin-centered things.”

Ross and other prominent members of what might best be described as the “Sarah Palin community” reject the notion that they are blind followers in a political cult of personality. They are clearly sensitive to being painted with a label that they instead attribute to President Obama’s biggest fans.

“I’m sure she’s had some impact on it, but I wouldn’t go as far to say she’s changed my life, and I’m suddenly hearing music and the light from above is shining on me,” says Josh Painter, who manages a Palin blog roll and edits Texas4Palin from his hometown of Bryan, Texas. “That’s Barack Obama territory-he’s ‘The One.’ Sarah Palin is just a woman we relate to.”

Of all the pro-Palin blogs, Conservatives4Palin consistently has the biggest impact and reach. Its influence is evident in that it is the only online destination specifically devoted to supporting a potential 2012 candidate to make a recent list of the 100 most popular conservative web sites.

Most of Conservatives4Palin’s contributors are not shy about their desire to see Palin run for president in 2012.

Palin herself long ago took notice of the site, giving it one of her patented shout-outs in her best selling book. She even scooped up two of its founding contributors last year and hired them to paid positions on her political staff.

“She’s always said the best ideas don’t come out of Washington, DC, and so there’s no reason why she wouldn’t follow that belief in choosing her staff,” says Rebecca Mansour, one of the former Conservatives4Palin bloggers turned current Palin staffer.

[…]

Thomas Chanteloup, a 45-year-old consultant for a software company consultant who blogs under the moniker “Sapwolf” on Conservatives4Palin, vows that he will quit his job to take up temporary residence in Iowa next year on Palin’s behalf.

“When she’s criticized, it’s like that person is showing unfair criticism or vitriol against my mother or daughter,” says Chanteloup, who says he has seen Palin speak in person about a dozen times and has shook her hand on about six occasions. “I take it personally.”

It certainly is true that Governor Palin’s army is far-reaching, unapologetic, and relentless. With innumerable lies and attacks on her and the Palin family, her “loyal online defenders,” as Scott Conroy coins us, are committed to being voices of truth and pillars of support upon which she can lean. And should she take the plunge into running for the presidency in 2012, she will certainly not be lacking people who will go to proverbial hell and back on her behalf.

Governor Sarah Palin’s Foreword to the 2010 US Tort Liability Index

Posted by Karen Allen on June 3, 2010


Conservatives 4 Palin note that Governor Sarah Palin has penned the foreword for the 2010 Report of the U.S. Tort Liability Index. Where does your state rank?
My home state of Alaska offers incredible beauty, amazing wildlife, abundant natural resources, friendly people, and no individual income tax. Alaska also has the best tort climate in the United States according to the U.S. Tort Liability Index: 2010 Report from the Pacific Research Institute (PRI).

In this top-notch report, PRI scholars analyze the costs and risks of each state’s tort system and conclude that Alaska is best overall. The report, now in its third edition, has been influential because the rankings are based on hard data, not opinions or speculation. The data don’t lie and Alaska is number one for good reasons.

Alaska has the second-lowest monetary tort payouts of any state, controlling for the size of each state’s economy. Our tort costs are particularly low for businesses—another reason for entrepreneurs to locate here. We also have some of the lowest medical liability costs in the country. We appreciate doctors in Alaska and welcome them with open arms, not abusive lawsuits.

Alaska also boasts the lowest relative tort litigation risks of any state. The state may abound in moose but it doesn’t have any “judicial hellholes” skewed to personal injury lawyers. The state also doesn’t have huge outlier jury awards. Its tort caseload is third-lowest in the country and it’s not flooded with lawyers. We practice the rule of law, not the rule of lawyers as in other states.

Alaska’s great tort climate is good for business and for all my fellow Alaskans. As the U.S. Tort Liability Index demonstrates, states with sound civil-justice systems and fair tort rules enjoy lower insurance premiums, increased employment and output, and higher individual incomes. A sound civil-justice system also expands the tax base, yields greater innovation, and lowers health care costs while improving access to health care.

Given these sweeping benefits, all states would do well to follow Alaska’s example and enact legal reforms that eliminate lawsuit abuse. The state motto, after all, is “North to the Future.”

Has President Obama Seen Governor Palin’s Light–or Does He Want to Snuff it Out?

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 11, 2010

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

As the entire nation knows, Governor Palin has been a voice for energy independence for years. She has worked relentlessly to see a natural gas pipeline built that would flow resources from Alaska to the Lower 48.

After all of the governor’s hard work and unprecedented success in moving forward in this effort that would not only provide jobs and boost the economy, but would aid in national security–freeing America to rely on the resources God has given us, rather than foreign regimes that don’t like us–it seems President Obama has suddenly become interested in energy.

The president wants to take this effort to tap into Alaska’s resources to the next level, making it a White House executive office matter.

According to Juneau Empire, Mark Begich, the Democrat senator from Alaska, has “nominated legislative aide Larry Persily for the Obama appointment as federal coordinator. Persily has support from Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, as well.”

This begs the question: Has President Obama suddenly seen the light–or is he trying to snuff it out?

Writing for US4Palin, Gary reports:

At first glance, this looks good, right? Obama is finally realizing we need to develop our own resources, after loaning his buddy George Soros’ Brazilian oil company, Petrobas, ten billion dollars to drill offshore in Brazil. And maybe Obama is trying to steal Sarah Palin’s thunder here.

Unfortunately, I believe you’d be wrong, and I believe my colleague is, as well. I don’t think Obama is trying to steal credit for this deal, I think he is trying to kill it.

Frankly, when has Obama done anything to support energy development in America? On the contrary, Obama and his minions have openly worked to thwart any and all domestic development of natural resources.

So what’s the deal?

First of all, let’s face it, that’s how these Chicago thugs work, period. We see it every single day. They strong arm and attack their own people if the don’t tow the line. Ask New York Governor David Patterson how Obama’s gangster tactics work.

Let’s take a quick look at Larry Persily himself. Persily is a self described “blue-collar Chicago democrat.”

Do you smell something fishy?

Gary is not the only one who has taken note of this interesting interest the President of the United States has suddenly developed. Conservatives4Palin has also covered the story.

Mel Bryant writes:

Almost one year ago, C4P predicted that the president would eventually attempt to take over, and take credit for, Governor Palin’s work to get Alaska a natural gas pipeline.

[…]

After spending months attacking Palin and obstructing her legislative agenda, Persily got called up to the big leagues. Just like Kim Elton. Funny how that worked out.

Now the president’s looking to increase the power of Persily’s position.

[…]

It’s not a surprise that Obama might want to take credit for Palin’s gas pipeline. After all, as Palin has pointed out over and over, America needs a source of clean, reliable energy that comes from domestic sources, thereby increasing our national security. But AGIA needs the free market to work. Much as he may wish to claim credit, Alaska’s gasline should not become an Obama public works project.

Bryant breaks down Persily’s associations as well, also leaving one to ponder what is really going on? Read that article in its entirety here.

Smell anything yet? Apparently Denmark is not the only place where rotten things reek.

God Don’t Like Ugly; Calling Out Craig Medred

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 31, 2009

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

There’s an old expression that goes like this: “God don’t like ugly.” I could not count the times I heard that growing up. It was used as a rebuke by the adults in my life whenever I did something they deemed inappropriate. As I got older, and made wiser choices, the need to be reminded of this “truth” diminished. However, not everyone grows up and makes wiser choices.

Exhibit A: Alaska reporter, Craig Medred

Medred’s fascination with discrediting the Palin family is…well, ugly. What’s it this time? Well, this time he fancies himself a Going Rogue fact-checker, and in that he’s in bad company already. However, Medred clearly isn’t capable of checking anything because he can’t get his facts straight. For this, he gets called out.

Mel Bryant, my colleague over at Conservatives4Palin, points this out in an article called “Truth in Reporting.” Bryant exposes, not only Medred’s ridiculous preoccupation with “checking on” Governor Palin, but also his gross inability to do so with any success.

Bryant writes:

Now, Jeff Smith, author of Alias Soapy Smith: The Life and Death of a Scoundrel, is a bit annoyed with Medred. You may recall that Governor Palin mentioned a man named “Soapy” Smith in her book as part of a larger passage about the history of Alaska and some of its characters. The paragraph in Going Rogue that mentions “Soapy” says:

After his adventures in Tombstone, the legendary lawman Wyatt Earp came north and spent a few years in Nome during the gold rush. On the other side of the law was “Soapy” Smith, a Wild West crime boss whose tight-knit gang moved from Colorado to Skagway. They made a mint cheating gold miners out of their cash. It finally caught up with Soapy Smith: he was killed in a shoot-out with a vigilante gang.

As part of a larger piece at Alaska Dispatch, Medred fact checked this paragraph. In this check, Medred said that the historical record states that “Soapy” was not killed in a shoot-out with a gang, but was instead killed in a scuffle that turned into a gunfight with a man named Frank Reid. Reid, he said, shot “Soapy”. Among others, he cited a passage from Jeff Smith’s book to bolster this version of events. According to Smith, however, Medred was off base.

Smith said (addressing Medred):

My name is Jeff Smith, author of Alias Soapy Smith: The life and Death of a Scoundrel and the website Alias Soapy Smith. It is important to me that people know that you took the facts from my book and my website completely out of context and horribly and incorrectly stated my conclusions about the Shootout on Juneau Wharf in which my great-grandfather, Jefferson Randolph “Soapy” Smith was killed. I can only surmise that you either did not read the book and/or website or that you intentionally left out major important portions of one or both in order to show that Sarah Palin was incorrect in her statements on page 13 regarding Soapy Smith’s fight with vigilantes.

Had you read the book and/or my website you would have clearly noted in my book (pages 532-580) and on my website (HERE) that Frank Reid was NOT the man who killed my great grandfather, and that in fact, another member of the vigilante guards present joined in the fight and wrestled Soapy’s rifle away from him and turned it on an unarmed Soapy and shot him in the chest killing him instantly. Whether you agreed or disagreed with Soapy’s ways is irrelevant to the fact that Soapy was shot while wounded and unarmed, which in most civilized communities is murder. The vigilantes hid this fact from the courts in order to save their own new found power.

Smith attempted to get a correction from Medred who eventually rewrote the article, removing the citation for Smith’s book. Medred also issued a clarification citing Catherine Holder Spudes. Smith isn’t particularly impressed with Medred’s clarification:

Mr. Medred’s “clarification” is filled with errors but truth in history is not his goal. Disproving Sarah Palin’s book is his goal.

#1 USA Today; Going Rogue Continues to Break Records

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 16, 2009

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

Going Rogue, Governor Sarah Palin’s memoir, continues to break records. It is #1 on the USA Today Best-Seller List for the 4th straight week.

According to my colleagues at Conservatives4Palin, this accomplishment means:

She officially breaks the previous record that Colin Powell set of three-straight weeks at the top of the USA-Today Best-Seller list among all books.

This makes the Governor the first politician to hold that #1 spot for 4 consecutive weeks.
