Synopsis and Distillation

The Wall Street Journal’s reportage focused on Governor Palin’s Reagan Conservatism; Bloomberg focused on her statements pertaining to the Federal Reserve, and perhaps the most surprising coverage of all came from the New York Times.

New York Times

“A number of people who heard the speech in a packed hotel ballroom…said…she was articulate, well-prepared and even compelling” (McDonald, 2009, ¶2). “Doug A. Coulter, head of private equity in the Asia-Pacific region for LGT Capital Partners” said Governor Palin “beat all expectations (McDonald, 2009, ¶3). “Cameron Sinclair, another speaker at the event, said Mrs. Palin emphasized the need for a grassroots rebirth of the Republican Party driven by party leaders outside Washington” (McDonald, 2009, ¶6). ” ‘She’s definitely a serious future presidential candidate, and I understand why she plays so well in middle America,’ said Mr. Coulter, a Canadian” (McDonald, 2009, ¶8).

The most salient quotes came from Melvin Goodé, a regional marketing consultant, who is African-American and an Obama supporter. “[Governor] Palin chose Hong Kong because, he said, it was “a place where things happen and where freedom can be expanded upon” (McDonald, 2009, ¶16). “It’s not Beijing or Shanghai,” he said (McDonald, 2009, ¶17). Mr. Goodé’s closing remarks: “She was articulate and she held her own. I give her credit. They’ve tried to categorize her as not being bright. She’s bright” (McDonald, 2009, ¶21). This is from an Obama supporter!

Bloomberg

The Fed and the government sent a message to companies that “the bigger that you are, the more problems that you get yourself into, the more likely the government is to bail you out,” Palin said in the closed door speech, according to a tape of the event given to Bloomberg News. “Of course the little guys are left out then. We’re left holding the bag, all the moms and pops all over America” (Kate & Chan, 2009, ¶3).

“How can we think that setting up the Fed as monitor of systemic risk in the financial sector will result in meaningful reform,” she said. “The words ‘fox’ and ‘henhouse’ come to mind” (Kate & Chan, 2009, ¶9).

Wall Street Journal

“We got into this mess because of government interference in the first place….We’re not interested in government fixes, we’re interested in freedom,” Governor Palin said (Cheng & Frangos, 2009, ¶2).

“She described her political philosophy as a ‘common-sense conservatism,’ and said the free-market policies of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher should be guides for how to get out of the current economic situation. ‘Liberalism holds that there is no human problem that government can’t fix if only the right people are put in charge,’ she said” (Cheng & Frangos, 2009, ¶7).

“She called for tax cuts as well as the elimination of the capital-gains and estate tax. Then, she said, the world will ‘watch the U.S. economy roar back to life'” (Cheng & Frangos, 2009, ¶11).

“‘We all hope to see a China that is stable and peaceful and prosperous,’ she said. But she added that the U.S. must work with Asian allies in case ‘China goes in a different direction'” (Cheng & Frangos, 2009, ¶14). “On U.S.-China trade relations, Ms. Palin called for more openness and warned against protectionism. ‘We need China to improve its rule of law, and protect our intellectual property,’ she said. ‘On our part, we should be more open to Chinese investment where our national security interests are not threatened'” (Cheng & Frangos, 2009, ¶16).

Commentary

The foregoing compilation clearly documents 90 minutes of pure Reagan Conservatism. In her speech, Governor Palin called for small limited government, states rights, and peace through strength. Supporting the thesis that Governor Palin’s appeal stretches from full right to center-left, she wowed even a die-hard Obama supporter with her speech.

Facebook user Catherine Yu Yeun Chen wrote on Governor Palin’s Facebook Wall that a friend who was present at the speech reported “Sarah Palin was received with the biggest round of applause. It took three minutes at least before she was able to start her speech…”

This was absolutely a defining moment and a major accomplishment for Governor Palin. Today, an Obama supporter regarded her as brilliant. Today, the New York Times, that bastion of liberalism declared that Governor Palin is a credible candidate for 2012.

For this speech, Governor Palin earned a sum at least equal to an entire year of gubernatorial pay and one fifth of Obama’s pay. Women all over the world should hold their heads high today. The world is trembling beneath her sonic boom, glass is exploding and the shards are falling to earth….

Confirmed: Sarah Palin To Be Keynote Speaker At CLSA Investor’s Forum In Hong Kong

Posted by Gary P Jackson on September 2, 2009

Yes, I know, I am a tad late, but, as is policy, we don’t talk about Sarah Palin’s schedule unless Sarah or her spokeswoman, Meg Stapleton, has verified that Sarah is indeed going somewhere.

There are just too many flaky promoters using Sarah’s name to sell tickets, without a verification from Sarah, who then try to blame her when she doesn’t show at an event she had never committed to in the first place. So we are not going to help them with that scam.

As we reported earlier, Sarah has almost 1100 invitations to speak at events, both paid and unpaid. Her attorney, Robert Bennett, announced this week that she is almost finished writing her book, so is now accepting invitations. Sarah will speak to various groups on a variety of issues that matter to America, and the world.

Sarah will also be speaking on behalf conservative candidates that share her vision for America, as well as for various charities, like those who support special needs children, and the military and their families.

Sarah will be speaking in Hong Kong at the CLSA Investor’s Forum, an annual conference of global investment managers. Previous speakers at the event include President Bill Clinton, Alan Greenspan, and Al Gore. The forum is sponsored by the CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets.

Their company spokeswoman Simone Wheeler said in a statement:

“Our keynote speakers are notable luminaries who often address topics that go beyond traditional finance such as geopolitics,”.

“We just felt it would be a fabulous opportunity for CLSA clients to hear from Mrs. Palin,” Wheeler said, adding that CLSA approached Sarah with the offer.

Those who follow Sarah Palin know she has a lot of foreign trade experience to draw from. Obviously, Palin worked close with the Canadian government to put together her signature achievement, the natural gas pipeline, but she has had many dealings with nations throughout the South Pacific as well as Russia and Canada.

Back in January of this year, as part of the big kick off to Alaska’s 50th birthday celebration, Sarah hosted a large contingent of dignitaries including Sergey Kislyak, the newly appointed Ambassador of the Russian Federation to the United States, who was making his first visit to Alaska.

Ambassador Kislyak proclaimed:

“I am so pleased to be here this weekend. As discussed in my meeting with Governor Palin, it is encouraging to note the similarities between Alaska and the Russian Far East. Our existing commercial connections and the mutually beneficial nature of our professional partnerships can only help provide a measure of stability as, together, we face the global economic challenges that lie ahead.”

Others attending the event were Yuri Gerasin, Consul General of the Russian Federation; Julian Evans, British Consul General; John Mataira, Consul General of New Zealand; Balazs Bokor, Consul General of Hungary; Sten Arne Rosnes, Consul General of Norway; Haryong Lee, Consul General of Korea; Fred Santos, Consul of The Philippines; Mel Knight, Alberta’s Minister of Energy; Marvin Schneider, Alberta’s Executive Director of the U.S. and Americas; and Haijun Wang, Deputy Director General of the Foreign Affairs Office of China’s Heilongjiang Province. Mr. Wang is leading a four-person delegation from Heilongjiang Province, a sister province to Alaska, and China’s northernmost region.

Members of the Alaska consular corps also participating in the weekend events were: Karen Matthias, of Canada; Hideo Fujita, of Japan; Hee-chul Kim, of South Korea; and Jose Luis Cuevas, of Mexico. They will be joined by honorary consuls of the Czech Republic, Poland, Finland, Seychelles, and Norway.

Obviously, we are happy to see that Sarah is starting to accept speaking engagements. This is a very great way for her to get her message out to the world, make a lot of new friends, and build relationships.

It’s a good to remember that many leaders do this. Former Vice President Richard Nixon, after losing to John Kennedy in 1960, went on the speaking circuit and used that to propel him into the White House, and the great Ronald Reagan was a prolific speaker taking many engagements both before he became Governor of California as well as afterward. This helped Reagan become President of the United States, as well.

Below is the press release from the CLSA:

Hong Kong, 31 August 2009 – CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets, Asia’s leading independent brokerage and investment group, will host the former Governor of Alaska and Republican vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, in her first international speaking engagement outside North America.

Palin will address CLSA clients and delegates in a keynote speech at the 16th CLSA Investors’ Forum to be held in Hong Kong from 21-25 September. Palin joins a list of noted global leaders including Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Alan Greenspan who have chosen the CLSA Investors’ Forum as their platform of choice to reach global institutional fund managers and CEO’s of Asia’s leading listed corporations.

CLSA Chairman and CEO Jonathan Slone said: “As the first female governor of Alaska and the youngest person ever elected governor of that state, Palin has broken new ground in US politics and we are delighted that she will make her first visit to Asia to present at the CLSA Investors’ Forum.”

“CLSA consistently sets the benchmark for original and thought-provoking content, and aims to present global political and industry leaders whose policies and platforms have influenced global markets.”

Joining Palin, are more than 40 keynote and specialist speakers including Niall Ferguson, Harvard professor and author of the bestseller The Ascent of Money; Robert Fisk, Middle east correspondent for The Independent and one of the few Western journalists to have interviewed Osama bin Laden; Sir Ken Robinson author of The Element: How finding your passion changes everything; Satyajit Das author of Traders, Guns and Money; David Roche, economic and political analyst; and Marc Faber, investment contrarian and author of Tomorrow’s Gold.

Now in its 16th year, the CLSA Investors’ Forum is Asia’s premier investment conference providing unrivalled corporate access to 1300 global fund managers from 32 countries, representing more than US$10trillion in funds under management. Over five days, they meet with more than 400 CEOs and CIOs of Asia’s leading listed corporations in 2500 group and private meetings. Simultaneously, a seven-track schedule offers over 200 keynote, specialist, CLSA analyst and corporate presentations.

The CLSA Investors’ Forum is CLSA’s annual flagship event and one of six held throughout the year. Participation is by invitation only.
