Palin: Waste & Fraud in the Federal Disability Insurance Program

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 8, 2013

Shared by Sarah Palin on her Facebook page:

In case you missed it, “60 Minutes” did an excellent segment on the waste and fraud in the Federal Disability Insurance Program. Kudos to Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and his staff for leading the investigation into this. And thank you, CBS, for covering it!

http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50156574n

From CBS News:

Steve Kroft reports on the alarming state of the federal disability program, which has exploded in size in the last six years and could become the first federal benefits program to run out of money.

CBS and Others Review “The Undefeated”

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 6, 2011

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

The Undefeated, the film about Governor Palin, is scheduled to premiere this month. Some people have already had the opportunity to see a screening, and reviews have been quite positive. Even CBS praises the film as one that highlights the fact that Governor Palin is qualified to be President of the United States.

Jan Crawford writes:

Sarah Palin is either running for President or she should be: That’s the takeaway from “The Undefeated,” a new movie about Palin’s life and leadership set to hit theaters next month.

Billed as a documentary – though told in a fast-paced and dramatic style – the two-hour movie is an unabashed defense of the former Alaska governor that leaves the distinct impression her presidential candidacy not only is possible, but inevitable.

Stephen Bannon, the movie’s creator, took on the project after Palin’s aides approached him late last year about making a series of videos on Palin. He proposed a movie instead, and bankrolled it himself. The final product, which I saw last week in a screening for a few reporters, gives Palin the introduction she never really had when the Hockey mom from Wasilla became John McCain’s running mate in 2008.

By tracing her political rise in Alaska, her battles with Big Oil and the Republican establishment, and her accomplishments as governor, the movie argues one overriding point: Sarah Palin is a seasoned executive who is more than qualified to be President.

It also adds context to her bus tour of historic sites and patriotic events, which she says she undertook to remind people about the principles America was founded on and the importance of the Constitution. Critics have questioned whether the tour is, in fact, just a big publicity stunt, but “The Undefeated” shows video of a young Palin echoing some of those same themes 20 years ago, when she was a rookie on the stump campaigning for office.

That’s one of the things I found most striking about the movie. Since Palin burst on the national scene in 2008, critics have portrayed her as an unformed and uninformed political thinker, suggesting someone just crammed her head with these ideas and unleashed her on America.

But “The Undefeated” goes a long way towards debunking that tired narrative. It shows an unbroken line in her thinking over the past two decades. The things she’s saying on her bus tour about freedom, free markets, fiscal responsibility and the proper role of government are the same things she’s been saying ever since she entered into politics.

[…]

Regardless of where you come down, though, here’s one thing both sides should agree on: It certainly looks like Palin is running for President. As she says in a speech in the movie’s very last scene: “Mr. President, game on.”

But will she?

CBS Affiliate Busted on Voicemail Conspiring Against Senate Candidate Joe Miller

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 31, 2010

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

The media has been busted conspiring once again. This time the target is Alaska’s Joe Miller who is running for Senate. Not too many knew who Miller was before he received the support of Governor Palin, and the lamestream media–along with other PDS sufferers–see a loss for him as a win against the Governor. So once again, the media stops at nothing to promote their agenda. This one is particularly troubling, and heads should roll. Nonetheless, we see an example of this truth: “what’s done in the dark will come to the light.”

Big Government reports:

The following voice mail message was inadvertently left on the cell phone of Joe Miller campaign spokesperson Randy DeSoto.

The voices are believed to be those of the news director for CBS Anchorage affiliate KTVA, along with assignment editor Nick McDermott, and other reporters, openly discussing creating, if not fabricating, two stories about Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, Joe Miller.

The following is a transcript of a call recorded after CBS Alaska affiliate KTVA called Joe Miller’s Senate campaign spokesperson. The call failed to disconnect properly. It was later authenticated by McDermott, who sent a text to Randy DeSoto stating, “Damn iPhone… I left you a long message. I thought I hung up. Sorry.”

 

Clearly the reporters were conspiring to set up some type of smear of Joe Miller. With glee, they even cite a recent controversy over an incident involving the Rand Paul campaign, while discussing how they would spread the story via social media after whatever incident they had in mind came off. It also brings to mind another recent episode that ended with Jerry Brown’s California gubernatorial campaign being caught up in controversy when someone from Brown’s camp called Brown’s opponent, Republican Meg Whitman, a “whore.”

This calls into serious question what type of campaign coverage CBS’ KTVA has been providing Alaskans all along, given their reporters’ willingness to conspire against Miller.

This totally makes me sick to my stomach. Can the public no longer count on the media to fairly report the news? That is the media’s job, is it not? We saw this type of nonsense here and here when, during the 2008 campaign, “Journolisters” went after Governor Palin after Senator McCain tapped her to be his running mate and she was deemed a threat to their victory plans. We saw it in the media’s decision to protect then-candidate Obama from serious scrutiny and downplay his radical associations. We saw it with the conspiracy to depict all Republicans as racists. We see it still–everyday–because the lamestream media has decided that their job is to be the deciding factor in who the public respects and elects. Joe Miller is just their newest target.

May this truth exposed send Alaskans to the polls with a determination to vote for the real Joe Miller, rejecting the Left’s sick agenda–so sick they joke and laugh about child molesters. Their behavior is disgusting, and certainly not befitting those who should be honored to represent our First Amendment rights. The term “sick puppies” comes to mind.

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.

60 Minutes: Vote Sarah Palin Most Influential Conservative

Posted by Ron Devito on November 30, 2009

In an unscientific poll conducted by 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair, Governor Palin is currently ranked as the fourth most influential conservative voice in the United States. Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and former Vice President Cheney have the number one through three ranks respectively. Talk show host, Sean Hannity is fifth, ranking behind Governor Palin (60 Minutes Poll, 2009).

Governor Palin’s ranking is fantastic considering that she does not have a nationally syndicated talk show on either radio or TV; and has not held high federal office. From the foregoing, we see that she is ranked more influential than Sean Hannity who has nationally syndicated talk shows on both radio and TV!

Governor Palin’s core communications methods are her <a href=”http://www.facebook.com/sarahpalin”>Facebook</a&gt; and <a href=”http://www.twitter.com/sarahpalinusa”>Twitter</a&gt; accounts.

But…let’s not settle for No. 4. Get her to Number 1! Get on and vote!
