Summoning Senator McCain

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 24, 2012

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

I have great respect for Senator John McCain. That respect is two-fold. First and foremost, I respect his service to our nation. He is a true American hero, the proverbial “profile in courage.” His strength and heroism in war are undeniable. Second, he was the vehicle through which the nation came to know Governor Palin. Though she had already been making history in Alaska, many had never heard her record, or even her name, until the Senator introduced her on August 29, 2008, in Dayton Ohio. For that, we are most grateful.

However, I have a bone to pick with him. HBO has shamelessly orchestrated the Palin hit piece known as Game Change, which is set to air next month. Its original purpose seems to have been to derail a Palin presidential run, as it was assumed she would be a candidate at this time. That, obviously, is not the case, but HBO’s characterization of her is no less demeaning, dishonest, and frankly, disgusting. In fact, former senior adviser and spokesperson, Meghan Stapleton, called it “sick,” and other staffers also denounced it as pure “fiction.”

My issue with Senator McCain is that he remains silent while those he trusted continue to blame Governor Palin for the horrible campaign they ran. They need a scapegoat, so they’ve chosen her, and they’re willing to sell their souls to the devil in the effort.

Mark Whittington writes:

The movie is based on a poorly researched book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, and it was criticized at the time of its publication by Howard Kurtz, then a media reporter for the Washington Post, and the New York Times for its overreliance on unsourced “deep background” interviews that were difficult to verify.

Two of those sources have been revealed, according to the Los Angeles Times, as Steve Schmidt and Nichole [sic] Wallace, John McCain campaign operatives widely regarded as being responsible for McCain’s defeat in 2008. The suspicion is Schmidt and Wallace are attempting to shift the blame for the debacle on Palin.

Schmidt and Wallace will obviously do what they do. Their despicable behavior is nothing new, but McCain could certainly stop it in its tracks with just one word–or at least slow it down. Instead, he is saying nothing. Therefore, these two little rascals are making him look even worse than they are attempting to make the Governor look. If she was really as bad as they say she was, what does that say about Senator McCain, since he’s the one who picked her? These two miscreants are not only doing a disservice to Governor Palin’s name, but they’re calling into question Senator McCain’s leadership capabilities.

The Senator did say this:

It’ll be a cold day in Gila Bend, Arizona, when I watch that movie.

Well, that’s fine, but surely he has seen the trailer by now, or read about it, or heard about the decent members of his 2008 election staff who have spoken out against the lies in this movie in which Governor Palin is depicted as mentally unstable, unprepared, and unintelligent.

Back in May, on the day Governor Palin launched her One Nation Bus Tour in Washington, DC, Senator McCain told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that Governor Palin could beat President Obama in an election if she decided to run. He added:

I think that, again, that’s what campaigns are all about. I’ve never seen anyone as mercilessly and relentlessly attacked as I have seen Sarah Palin in the last couple of years, but she also inspires great passion particularly among the Republican faithful.

I agree with Senator McCain: no one has been treated as unfairly and vilely as Governor Palin. Since he knows this to be true, I would have even more respect for him if he’d do his part to put an end to it. I also agree that she inspires the Republican faithful. If Senator McCain considers himself among those faithful, he should be inspired enough to take a stand, shouldn’t he? Governor Palin energized his campaign for the presidency, she is the reason he didn’t lose by an even greater margin, and she helped secure his congressional reelection in 2010. At the very least, I would like the Senator to speak up on behalf of his former running mate–and himself–by calling out his staffers and their lies. It’s simply the right thing to do, and Senator McCain has shown us in the past that he knows how to do the right thing.

Listen to Palin, Media; Maybe You’ll Get Something Right

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 23, 2010

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

The Lame Stream Media does it again. Here they go twisting what Governor Palin said to suit their own interests. The Obama administration has acted irresponsibly–and slowly–to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Why such a slow response to BP?

The Governor, in her interview today with Chris Wallace, discussed the fact that President Obama received a huge chunk of contributions from BP. As Sheya at C4P reported in his article, “Listen Up! It’s About BP!” she said:

I don’t know why the question isn’t asked by the mainstream media and by others if there’s any connection with the contributions made to President Obama and his administration and the support by the oil companies to the administration.

If there’s any connection there to President Obama taking so doggone long to get in there, to dive in there, and grasp the complexity and the potential tragedy that we are seeing here in the Gulf of Mexico —

Now, if this was President Bush or if this were a Republican in office who hadn’t received as much support even as President Obama has from B.P. and other oil companies, you know the mainstream media would be all over his case in terms of asking questions why the administration didn’t get in there, didn’t get in there and make sure that the regulatory agencies were doing what they were doing with the oversight to make sure that things like this don’t happen.

It’s a fair point–one that needed to be raised. But who else but Governor Palin has the nerve to throw it on the table? Notice, however, the inability–once again–to correctly report what she said. Instead of posing her question to the Obama administration, the response is to prove that Republicans have received more money from the oil and gas industries than Obama.

But that isn’t the issue, is it? Of course not, and they would know that isn’t the issue–if they would listen.

Sheya sets the record straight:

Governor Palin didn’t dispute the fact that McCain received more from the oil and gas industries in the whole than did Obama. This disaster was not caused by the oil and gas industries, but by BP and BP alone, and it is from BP alone that Obama received the biggest chunk of all their political contributions. It is reasonable to demand questions be asked about the coziness of the Obama administration to BP.

Read the full article here.

In addition, Governor Palin tweeted about this twice today, and she was quite clear as she tried to assist the needy Robert Gibbs who needs more help than the Governor will ever have time to give:

Mr. Gibbs, Obama is the top recipient of BP PAC & individual money over the past 20 years. http://u.nu/5vpia Dispute these facts.

Mr. Gibbs, BP gave over $3.5mill to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with with the largest amount going to Obama http://u.nu/5vpia

I offer the same advice that I offered in my post earlier today:

My advice to the media: be responsible, listen carefully, take notes, and tell the truth.

This video posted by Sheya sums it up well.

Governor Palin On the Record On the Issues

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 15, 2010

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

After the Susan B. Anthony Celebration of Life Breakfast in Washington, D.C. yesterday, Greta Van Susteren interviewed Governor Palin. The interview entailed a plethora of crucial issues of the day. Topics of discussion were her candidate endorsements; Elena Kagan, the Supreme Court nominee; illegal immigration and border security; off-shore drilling; the Greece bailout; and what she would say to President Obama if the opportunity arose.

This particular interview was, I believe, her most detailed yet, surpassing the interview with Chris Wallace that followed the National Tea Party Convention in Nashville in February. The Governor is incredibly astute at weighing in on the substantive pressing topics at home and abroad; that has not changed. She is able to disseminate that information best, however, when the interviewer does his or her job well, asking the kinds of real questions to which we need real answers. Governor Palin is then able to utilize her experience as a city manager, an energy expert, a business owner, a governor, and a common sense conservative to cut through the “bull crap” many politicians employ and simply get to the meat of the matter.

Below you can watch the portion of the interview where she tells what she would say to the president. Then click here to access the entire interview.

Sarah Palin: Lightning In A Bottle

Posted by Gary P Jackson on February 9, 2010

Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.

–Mark Twain

I’ve been on this earth a half a century. I’ve experienced a lot of history first hand, and studied history even further, and in all of my time I have never experienced anything or anyone like Sarah Palin.

To say that Sarah Palin is a dynamic figure is a gross understatement. Sarah is a woman who commands attention, and commands respect. Oh yeah, she has her detractors, everyone does, but they are only making themselves more and more irrelevant with each passing day. These Palin deniers might try and tell themselves that Sarah Palin doesn’t matter, but that simply doesn’t make it so!

The radical left and the media (yes, yes..I know, same thing) have tried to set up a narrative that Sarah doesn’t matter, that she is irrelevant. And yet, they follow her every word. It has become quite comical to watch the Palin deniers twist themselves into knots every time she says or does something.

Take this past weekend. Sarah Palin was everywhere. On a weekend that featured not only the Super Bowl but the kick off to the NASCAR season, Sarah was the big story, the one getting all of the attention.

Let’s take a look at her itinerary starting on Friday. As we reported, Sarah made a stop in Salina, Kansas to speak to the local Chamber of Commerce. This was reportedly the largest ever such gathering for a Chamber meeting.

Here is the audio from Sarah’s speech via Kevin Wright and C4P:

Wait a minute, hold the phone! That sure didn’t sound like some airhead speaking, did it? I guess the Palin deniers didn’t bother to listen to this speech. I know they certainly don’t want you to listen!

What I heard was an experienced Chief Executive talking about success, and how to duplicate it. Now I know that Sarah doesn’t have slick marketing slogans or tired generalizations like “hope and change,” but I think we can “settle” for some real solid ideas, and knowledge, can’t we?

From Salina, Sarah went on to Nashville where she headlined the first annual National Tea Party Convention.

To say that Sarah Palin knocked it out of the park with her rousing speech would be like saying that Shakespear fellow “wrote some good plays!” Sarah was remarkable. Strong, confident, and on target.

While Sarah spoke on her signature issues: fiscal responsibility, and energy independence, but she spent the largest portion of her speech talking about national security. Something President Obama, a total failure in this arena, avoided like the plague in his State of the Union Speech.

The left tries to portray her as someone with no knowledge of foreign affairs. They don’t dare tell people that it was Sarah’s strong answers on foreign policy and national defense that led John McCain to choose her of 24 other candidates as his running mate!

Sarah speaks very strongly on issues of national security, and when it comes to fighting terrorism, takes a page out of Reagan’s policy on fighting evil, simply stating her position: “We win, they lose.”

Sarah, was introduced to the large crowd by media mogul Andrew Breitbart. She received multiple standing ovations and continuous loud applause from the audience. Her speech which totally eclipsed the President’s State of the Union speech, was followed by a question and answer session.

Video courtesy of Palin TV:

After the speech, the corrupt, Obamacentric media didn’t know what to do or say. They simply couldn’t refute her speech, or her facts. They absolutely couldn’t deny her strong support from those in attendance.

Now generally, the left tries to tell everyone that Sarah is dumb, or that her speeches “ramble” and are “dis-jointed and incoherent” but America has come to realize the left is just projecting, and if anything, they are describing their leader, Barack Obama, who can’t give a coherent, substantial speech to save his life. In fact, as Obama’s popularity has slipped, his speeches have become more and more erratic and incoherent.

What we witnessed in Nashville was a powerful woman who knows exactly what she is trying to do, and is doing it well. It was incredibly fitting that Sarah gave this speech on the 99th birthday of one of our greatest Presidents, Ronald Reagan.. Sarah was nothing short of Reaganesque in her delivery. She was solid, and engaging. Sarah laid out her vison for America, an America that is prosperous, safe, and free.

So, unable to refute Sarah, unable to compete in the marketplace of ideas, the media, which is basically a propaganda arm for Obama, Inc., went on to become a full parody of itself.

In what looked more like a Saturday Night Live skit poking fun of the media, the press, decided that they would focus on the fact that Sarah had some words written on her hand!

This reached high levels of absurdity very quickly, with slow motion replays and all. Frankly, it was simply delicious. It proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the left is done. They literally have nothing left. They have been defeated soundly by this housewife and mother from Wasilla, Alaska!

While the left was tying itself in knots with their mental gymnastics over Sarah’s scriblings, Sarah was on the move. Taped on Saturday, an interview with Chris Wallace for Fox News Sunday was next:

To me, this may have been Sarah’s best interview. Part of the credit goes to Chris Wallace. The guy asks the tough questions. No one could accuse this of being a “soft ball” interview. Poised and confident, this is the kind of interview that makes Sarah shine. This interview was the most watched in FNS history, and beat out all of the other Sunday shows in ratings.

Sarah answered a number of questions that are on the people’s minds, and gave a pretty solid answer about the question of will she or won’t she, regarding 2012.

Of course, there was no time for Sarah to relax and take it all in. Sunday afternoon Sarah was in the Great State of Texas to rally supporters for Governor Rick Perry. It was a large vocal crowd that met her there. Sarah is incredibly popular here in Texas. She represents the strong, independent spirit of the Lone Star State very well. With that in mind, Governor Perry bestowed on her one of the greatest honors a person can achieve, and named Sarah an honorary Texan!

Video of her speech:

Solid, red meat stuff from Sarah Palin!

Oh and the hand thing? Sarah showed the media just how little they, and their criticism matter to her:

As we wrote yesterday, this is why we know Sarah will be our next President. This woman is fearless, and unlike most pols, absolutely doesn’t give a damn what the media thinks of her!

Last June Sarah was talking about the fact that her opposition wanted her to just sit down and shut up. Her response was “Politically, if I die, I die, but I won’t sit down, and I won’t shut up!” This has turned into a battle cry for all patriots, as Sarah has inspired millions to not “sit down and shut up” and to get out there and let their voices be heard, to make a real difference!

If Sarah Palin never does anything else in her life, she will have had a positive influence on America by just inspiring so many to answer the call to action, and to stand up and hold our corrupt government accountable. Sarah has been one of those who have sparked a real revolution in this country, a revolution that is seeing those corrupt government officials fall, one by one, and real patriots take their places.

This was an incredible weekend for Sarah Palin. Sarah established herself solidly as the true leader in America. There is absolutely no doubt now, that if she chooses that path, the presidency in 2012 is hers. There is simply no other leader in America that has the ability and the courage to bring America back from the brink of disaster.

Rich Galen’s Mullings column over the weekend reinforces something that has been true since the day Sarah Palin burst onto the national scene. If you remember, during the 2008 campaign, once Sarah was introduced to the world, the Obama campaign rarely ran against, or mentioned John McCain. They were always running against Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin was considered, for their purposes, Obama’s equal.

As Rich points out, Sarah Palin is still Obama’s equal:

* Here’s how you know, if you are the President of the United States, that things are going in the wrong direction.

You have scheduled a speech to the Democratic National Committee meeting in Washington, DC.

It snows about 20 inches in Washington, DC weakening your arguments for cap-and-trade legislation

A car spins into the press van traveling with your motorcade

You do the speech and generate headlines like this one from the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram:

Obama Seeks to Rally Glum Dems Amid GOP Challenges

* Meanwhile Sarah Palin’s keynote speech to the Tea Party meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, is covered like your State of the Union Address had been two weeks earlier, leading the chattering class to compare your appearance with that of Gov. Palin.

* Palin’s speech generated headlines like this in the Nashville Tennessean:

Palin: Tea Party Movement is a Call to Action

* Here’s a basic rule of political counter-punching: You want your lowest ranking person in a public fight with your opponent’s highest ranking person – preferably your opponent.

* For example, if you are managing the campaign for the guy running against an incumbent for Congress, you want to have the kid who does the morning clips in a public argument with the Congressman.

* That diminishes the Congressman and enhances the clips kid.

* Over weekend the losing candidate for Vice President was, for all intents and purposes, treated as the political equal of the President of the United States.

*This, if you are in the political shop at the White House, is not good.

You can read more here.

Now as far as we are concerned, Sarah Palin is far superior to Barack Obama in any and every category, but in the context, Sarah Palin is indeed the equal of the President of the United States. Sarah commands the same amount of attention as the President, and her words are just as powerful as those that come from the Office of the President.

As we witnessed throughout the summer and fall of 2009 and still witness today, just a few words written by Sarah on Facebook have the power to change history. While she didn’t do it alone, Sarah’s tough talk on both ObamaCare and cap and tax helped scuttle both disastrous initiatives.

Sarah commands our attention and respect because she is working hard. Sarah is working hard to take the commonsense conservative message to everyone in the country. With that in mind, Monday morning, Sarah was still in Houston and appeared as a motivational speaker at a business conference headlined by some of our nation’s strongest leaders that included herself, Rudy Giuliani, Lou Holtz, Zig Ziegler, Colin Powell, and Microsoft President Rick Belluzzo.

Once that was over, Sarah was on her way to Redding, California where she had two sold out appearances at the Sierra Cascade Loggers Conference. You can read more here.

Oh, and written on the palm of her hand: “Loggers Rule!
