Help SarahPAC Support Candidates Like Steve Lonegan

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 13, 2013

The following email was sent from SarahPAC in support of Steve Lonegan’s bid to become the next US Senator from New Jersey as well as other conservative candidates endorsed by SarahPAC.

 

Emailheader

Friends,Governor Sarah Palin will be in New Jersey this Saturday to throw her support behind a very important candidate, Mayor Steve Lonegan. We are at a pivotal point in our nation, and New Jersey will choose their next U.S. Senator on October 16. Both of the men running for office have served their state as mayor, but only one has actually governed by the values of New Jersey’s state motto: “Liberty and Prosperity.”

During one mayor’s tenure, his town’s unemployment nearly doubled, taxes skyrocketed, and violent crime increased. In fairness, Newark Mayor Cory Booker may not have noticed these facts between his constant tweeting and trips to Hollywood. The quest for celebrity can be distracting.

But contrast Mayor Cory Booker with Mayor Steve Lonegan. As mayor, Steve cut wasteful spending, eliminated wasteful services, stabilized taxes, and reduced debt. Perhaps it was Steve’s prior experience as a successful small business owner and entrepreneur that encouraged him to lead with conservative principles. He understands that government is too often the problem, not the solution. Steve asked Governor Palin for her support, and after reviewing the facts, Governor Palin and SarahPAC have endorsed his candidacy enthusiastically.

Now we need your help to support Steve and fight for the limited government principles our nation was founded on.

Your contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more will help SarahPAC support Mayor Steve Lonegan and our fight to preserve our founding principles!

Help us fight the liberal media’s lies that Steve can’t win in certain areas. His own electoral history proves that theory untrue. New Jersey deserves better, and Steve Lonegan will fight to reduce burdensome federal overreach, eliminate Obamacare, and stand up to the Washington political establishment that threatens our nation’s future.

Stand with Steve today!

Sincerely,

Tim Crawford Treasurer, SarahPAC

Caller Wants Palin to Lead Conservatives

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 29, 2013

Calgary_March2010_sarah

During today’s Rush Limbaugh Show a caller discusses his desire for Sarah Palin to lead conservatives in a take over of the Republican Party.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here’s Greg in Nashua, New Hampshire.  You’re next on the EIB Network.  Hello.

CALLER:  Hi, Rush.  Based on what you’re saying about the Republican Party abandoning a large chunk of the American population — including conservatives — or even being any real opposition to the Democrats on Obamacare and apparently everything else, I’m wondering whether Sarah Palin’s recent gambit that if the GOP… I think she calls them the GOP brain trust on the Greta show.  If the GOP is indeed abandoning her as well as a large swath of American voters, she’s going independent.  Palin is a prominent Republican. Even beyond what Ted Cruz or Mike Lee has said, she’s broached the topic of going outside the GOP if need be, and maybe she’s right on target there. Maybe she can lead the way out of this conundrum of the Dems and the GOP, apparently, being joined at the hip, at least on Obamacare and probably a lot more.

RUSH:  Well, you mean by going third party?

CALLER:  Yeah, or thing if… Turn the party over to her she’ll go third.

RUSH:  Now, wait a minute.  I think I mighta missed something.  Nobody is gonna turn the party over to anyone.   More

Palin: CPAC 2012 Keynote Speech

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 31, 2012

CPAP2012Inspiring and motivating grassroots activists, Sarah Palin took to the stage as keynote speaker for the 2012 CPAC Convention where she was not only heckled by Occupy Wall Street members but was also given at least twelve standing ovations by convention attendees.  Palin, in her own unique way, took care of the hecklers along with a little help from the audience.

Like no other conservative, Palin gives the kind of speech that makes the listener want to hang on every word.  Never one to sugarcoat the problems our nation faces, Palin offers time-tested conservative truths to solve these problems along with a dose of much-needed optimism for the future.  Her evident love of country is clearly articulated in her impassioned words.

I was part of that 2012 CPAC audience and you can view my initial impressions here.

Palin: Right Online Speech Rocks the House

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on June 17, 2012

Sarah Palin delivered a “fire and brimstone” speech prepared especially for the new media attendees of “Right Online 2012” Friday evening in Las Vegas at the Venetian Hotel.  Palin was both serious and funny in her delivery evoking loud applause, cheers, and laughter.

Tony Lee of Brietbart.com penned the must-read “Top Ten Quotes From Sarah Palin’s Right Online Address”.  In it, Lee cites “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.”  There were so many gems in this speech I’m sure Tony Lee had difficulty coming up with his top ten list.  One of my favorite moments not included on Lee’s list is when Palin is discussing the lamestream media and their lack of vetting of Candidate Obama. Palin went on to say said that there are a few good reporters out there that want truth and they’re not wanting to put anyone  on a pedestal that would seek to be “Prince of MakeStuffUpistan”.  In my book this was classic Palin.

Take a listen for yourself and be inspired.

What if…?

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 30, 2012

Acknowledgingthecrowd_searchlightIn all honesty, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of just how different this GOP primary season would have been with Sarah Palin in the mix.  Timothy Stanley, an Oxford University historian, correctly (in my opinion) lays out what this presidential campaign season might have looked like had Governor Sarah Palin declared her candidacy.

 

From CNN:

(CNN) — The Republican presidential primary hasn’t exactly overflowed with talent. In December, it was a roll call of the undesirable Right: Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, Perry, Huntsman and Bachmann — a list so long and bizarre that Count Dracula could have slipped in on the end and no one would have noticed. Except, as the citizens of Chicago will tell you, the dead always vote Democrat.

Now, we’re down to a final three, discounting Ron Paul, who, I’m guessing, is only staying in the race to collect air miles. Although the talent pool has shrunk, it has gotten no deeper. As Mitt Romney suffers defeat after defeat at the hands of Rick Santorum, whose chances of winning this thing aren’t high, his negatives mount up, and the president looks stronger by the day. The Republican Party is divided and in danger of becoming out of touch.

It didn’t have to be this way. If Sarah Palin had entered the contest, I’d hypothesize two alternative realities. One, she’d have the nomination sewn up by now. Two, she’d be running even in the polls with the president.

What have proved to be problems for the top three candidates wouldn’t have been problems for Palin. For starters, she has none of Newt Gingrich’s intellectual hubris. There’s no way Palin would have promised to put a mine on the moon or suggest arresting judges who make decisions that are too liberal. Her conservatism is far more domestic and down-to-Earth.  More

Palin: Mark Levin’s “Ameritopia” Explains How We Got In the Mess We’re In

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 15, 2012

Posted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page earlier this evening:

Please click here to listen to Mark Levin’s excellent comments at the Reagan Library last week about his great new book “Ameritopia.” His wisdom is needed now more than ever.

Consider, for example, the news today about the Congressional Budget Office’s report on Obamacare. Remember when President Obama promised us that under Obamacare if you like your current health care coverage you can keep it? Well, that turns out to be another “you lie” moment. According to the CBO’s new report, as many as 20 million Americans could lose their employer-provided health insurance because of Obamacare.

Couple this latest revelation with the news that Obamacare’s estimated ten year cost is now double the original projection and the fact that Obamacare puts an unelected panel of faceless bureaucrats in charge of cutting Medicare spending to keep costs down (i.e. making life and death rationing decisions about your coverage – decisions which will make it more likely that doctors and hospitals will simply decide not to provide certain procedures because Medicare won’t cover them or will pay too little for them).

Taken all together, you will see that everything we told you about this “mother of all unfunded mandates” is true. If we let Obamacare stand, it will ultimately bankrupt us and rob us of our liberty in a hundred different ways. Repealing Obamacare must be a central theme of the coming election just as it was during the 2010 midterms.

But step back for a moment and ask yourself how our great republic got to this situation where Obamacare was even proposed. Ask how our brave troops fighting so far from home could find themselves in a war that seems so unfocused and without end. How did we get so far removed from our foundational belief in limited Constitutional governance and the great maxim of “Peace Through Strength”? Listen to Mark Levin and read his “Ameritopia” to open your eyes about the roots of the problems we face today.

Striking a Chord: The Beautiful Melody Of a Palin Speech

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 21, 2012

Imagine if you will, a piano keyboard with each key representing a conservative value or principle that is required to restore our Republic.  Further imagine that the right combination of keys produces the most beautiful melody you’ve ever heard, one that resonates with your very soul.  It’s the principles of our founders that are tried and true. It’s the “keys of truth”, conservative principles that  will bring this country back from a precipice.  I heard that beautiful melody on Saturday, February 11th in a Marriott Ballroom in Washington, DC when Governor Sarah Palin delivered the keynote speech at the 2012 CPAC Convention.  Based upon the reaction of the CPAC attendees, Sarah Palin “struck a chord” that resonated with their souls and quotes, such as the following, are the reason why:

Debt – “Ya cut it.  Gut it.  Get rid of it!  Americans shouldn’t have to spend their lives working so hard so Washington can spend easy”

Military – “We are going to put our faith in the strength of our armed forces and not the hollow promises of our adversaries.  We must be the home of the brave. We refuse to accept that a weak America means a better and safer world.”

Founders – “Professor Obama may have forgotten the Bill of Rights but we shall not forsake it including those rights that our founders risk their lives for.  Freedom of religion.  The right to bear arms.  We will rise up, we will defend them.”

Economy – “We want an economy built to grow.”

Taxes – “We want to cut taxes so we can create more wealth”.

Jobs – “We have a better jobs plan and it’s called the free market and it worked before this president and it will work again after this president.”

Life – “We believe that every child is created equal with that right to life.  I ask you to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.  If not us, who?”

Israel – “God bless Israel.”

Is it any wonder there were some twelve standing ovations?  Take a listen.

After reading the above, you most likely think that it was written in the last twenty-four hours and certainly after the posting of SarahPAC’s most recent video release “Chords of Memory”.  It wasn’t.  Unfortunately the busyness of life sometimes gets in the way of blogging and seemingly good ideas get placed on the back-burner.  When I saw the video title “Chords of Memory”, I had to wonder if perhaps the piano keyboard analogy was divinely inspired.  I tend to think that perhaps it was.

Palin: Facebook Political Views Change from Republican to Conservative (Update)

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 14, 2011

I was walking through the grocery store earlier today when I received a text message from a close friend asking me if I had taken note of the change on Sarah Palin’s Facebook page.  I confessed that it had been an exceptionally busy day and that I had not looked at Palin’s page today.  My friend then brought to my attention that under the “Info” link, Palin’s political views have been changed from “Republican” to “Conservative”.  For a brief moment, it didn’t phase me as I am also a registered Republican but I chose to list “Conservative” on my Facebook page as my own political view because in my eyes, it more aptly describes my values.

I suppose one could draw a multitude of conclusions regarding this status change. I know that I certainly have. You can be certain that any move Sarah Palin makes has been well thought out and is with purpose.  Could she possibly be sending a message to the RNC that they need to strengthen the conservative planks of the Republican party?  Perhaps her promise of “sudden and  relentless reform” as addressed in her Indianola speech and more recently in her October 7th St. Louis speech is a sign that as in the past, neither party is safe from her scrunity.

One thing is for sure, time will tell.


UPDATE:

Upon further investigation this change may be a function of Facebook’s recent layout changes.  Old screen shots show both a “party” line and a “political views” line.  This screen shot clearly shows both fields:

Since Google and Yahoo do their jobs so well, a search of cached pages yielded very recent caches of 10/12/11 and 10/10/11 respectively with those pages showing just “Conservative”. In checking my own page, there is an option for “Conservative Republican”; however, I have a regular individual page and Palin’s page type with over 3.2 million “likes” may not offer the same options.

While I have always known that Sarah Palin is, without a doubt, “conservative”, there are numerous people tweeting that they too recall the “Republican” designation as noted above.  I would like to include links to some of these Tweets but it appears  that this topic has “broken” Twitter as I am getting their infamous “whale fail” over and over. I will add another update as soon as possible with a few of those tweets.

Update 2

Tweets from Palin supporters confirming “Republican” designation here, here, and here.

Update 3

It seems that this entry was picked up by another site and the blogger initially added some additional speculation by commenting on a 3rd party run; however, the blog entry has gone through so many edits that it’s no longer there and no, I don’t have a screenshot of that either.  I’d lke to point out that (1) based upon a friend’s observation and my own recollection of looking at the info page last month as well as the recollection of numerous Palin supporters, it’s clear that “Republican” has been listed although it was, in the past, paired with “Conservative”.  (2)  The observations stated in my original entry  (strengthening the planks of the Republican party and Palin’s scrunity of both political parties) are consistent with Governor Palin’s record and her message when announcing not to make a run for president in the 2012 election cycle on Mark Levin’s October 5th show. .

Alaskans4Palin reviews “The Undefeated”

Posted by traceyporreca on August 4, 2011

Recently, Alaskans4Palin had the opportunity to view a copy of “The Undefeated.” While the film has been available for some time throughout the lower 48, it has not yet been released to Alaskan audiences. Three Alaskans4Palin bloggers traveled hundreds of miles each way to meet in a remote cabin on a dirt road anxious to see this film about our now famous former Governor.

While it is difficult for most Alaskans to remove the lens that makes them automatically suspicious of things coming from outside, we attempted to set it aside for the purposes of reviewing this film. What we found is a fair and accurate record of Governor Palin’s political history.

The film accomplishes what should have been done by the McCain camp in 2008 with the announcement of Governor Palin as his Vice Presidential pick – it details her record, accomplishments, and Alaska girl guts.

As Alaskans, we reminisced about the events of the film: Where we were living, who’s campaigns we were volunteering for, and how we reacted to the headlines at the time. Many of the faces and names are all too familiar to us. Many we have worked with, worked for, or lived down the street from. It paints an all too familiar picture of the establishment GOP versus the true conservative GOP in this state. At times we were reminded of the darker side of Alaskan politics, the “good ole’ boys” and the “CBC”, the backroom deals and the corruption that plagued our state, and in some ways still does. We were reminded of the battle and the headlines brought about by Governor Palin’s time on the Oil and Gas Commission. We were entertained by the personal video clips and photos that were contributed to the project of a much younger Governor Palin in office.

What the film does well is galvanize Governor Palin’s conservative principles with the viewer. The film outlines how these principles have not changed with any office she has held. She has a proven track record here in the state with her staunch conservative views, yet also has always been able to “reach across the aisle” and garner bipartisan support. There will certainly be some in the established Alaskan GOP who likely will not be fans of this film. Using Governor Palin’s book “Going Rogue” as a guide, the film calls out her political opponents on both sides of the aisle regarding the antics that stymied the State.

The film also attempts to explain the frivolous ethics complaints that paralyzed the Palin administration. Prior to leaving on the 2008 vice presidential campaign trail, the film accurately reports that Governor Palin enjoyed a more than 80% approval rating. But when she returned, the Democrats who had been so amiable to working with her, now could not be seen in the same room with her; and the Republicans who were never very fond of her for working against the establishment and winning, had not become any friendlier. Dozens of ethics complaints, filed by only a handful of individuals, kept her administration from accomplishing positive things for the state. Doors that were once open were slammed shut and much of it had to do with these unfounded complaints. Her staff became overwhelmed with the daily struggle to defend the Governor and meet the overwhelming FOIA requests.

With Alaskans at the heart of her decision, she stepped aside, allowing Governor Parnell to take over and complete the agenda items that she had laid forward. Governor Parnell was able to accomplish much in the last few months of what was originally Sarah Palin’s governorship, items we are confident Governor Palin would have been able to accomplish herself had her administration not been mired down by those complaints.

At the time she proclaimed, “Politically, If I die, I die.” She knew that stepping down was not the greatest move for her future political career. In what was one of the greatest displays of self sacrifice witnessed in recent politics, Governor Palin put us, the people of Alaska who had hired her, before herself and before the good of her career. She gave up a stable, well paying job and the security of safely moving up the political line in order to end the political games that were holding the State back from progress.

Though written and produced outside and despite its limited interviews and filming within the State, the Undefeated has presented Governor Palin in an honest light. It accurately depicts her time as Mayor of Wasilla, as Chairman of the Oil and Gas Commission, and as Governor of the State of Alaska. It accurately describes the political environment Governor Palin returned to following the failed 2008 campaign. Governor Palin is an Alaskan who believes that defeat is not an option. She was raised to believe that she is capable, strong, and able to handle anything that comes her way, whether it be a frigid blizzard, an angry grizzly, or an ordinary politician.

It seems that the future is wide open for Governor Palin. Alaskans4Palin is excited about the opportunities that lie on the horizon for Governor Palin and her family and we are thankful that she remains Undefeated.
