Palin: We Have Reason to be Optimistic

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 7, 2014

Gov. Sarah Palin appeared “On The Record” earlier this evening at which time host Greta Van Sustern ask questions ranging from the content of Palin’s CPAC speech to the current situation in Ukraine to “will you run in 2016?”

Palin: CNN, We Want Truth in Reporting

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on April 7, 2013

Sarah Palin, via her Facebook page, calls out the lame-stream media again.

CNN: it’s no wonder your ratings still aren’t matching competitors. American viewers are smarter than you assume, and we simply want truth in reporting.

Please see the article linked below. Wolf Blitzer’s recent coverage of this story really was blisteringly dishonest. First, because he didn’t reach out to me or the SarahPAC staff for rebuttal. Second, because he failed to disclose the anti-tea party associations of the “architect” of this story whose organization is a competitor of my efforts to advance the candidacies of genuine grassroots conservatives – not those handpicked by the permanent political class. As the article explains, in my recent CPAC speech I gulped and denounced the consultants who engage in campaign hopping and have made a racket out of multi-million dollar failures each election cycle for themselves and their cronies. What a shame CNN continues to plug away in a floundering direction with reports like this. The shame is that they employ some top-notch reporters who no doubt believe in truth in journalism, but examples like this diminish the good reporters’ good efforts.

As a side note, I find it interesting that CNN recently disclosed that their old “Crossfire” show might hit their airwaves again. Wasn’t CNN among those who issued blistering criticism about the use of a “crossfire” icon in 2010 to represent political districts we wished to see represented by commonsense conservatives? CNN, among others, implied that using a “crossfire” icon (which was a tactic first employed by Democrats to illustrate political maps of districts they “targeted” to win) was inciting violence.

Anti-Tea Party No Labels Co-founder Unleashes Attack on Sarah Palin


Big Gulp Lady Liberty AP

John Avlon, the co-founder of the anti-Tea Party No Labels group, wrote a bizarre attack piece on Sarah Palin’s lean political action committee last week after completely misconstruing what Palin said at the Conservative Political Action Conference. At CPAC, the former Alaska governor and Tea Party leader denounced the permanent political class and urged Republicans to “furlough” the consultants.

Palin railed against consultants and those who need them for stories–like Avlon, who, along with those like Mark McKinnon, feigns objectivity while pushing the “No Labels” agenda that is mutually exclusive with that of conservatives and Tea Partiers. Those like Avlon often bash influential Tea Party conservatives like Palin to pay tribute to their liberal mainstream media masters, who then reward them with dutiful pats on the head and television appearances for him to peddle his “centrist” books the country does not care about, will not read, and certainly has no intention of buying.

More importantly, though, Avlon and the No Labels crowd are directly threatened by the rise of conservatives and Tea Partiers, and they want to do everything they can do diminish the person who serves as a successful spokeswoman and clearinghouse for conservative and Tea Party candidates.

Never in Palin’s CPAC speech, which Avlon references heavily in his less than substantive article, did she say a politician cannot have advisers. There is a huge difference between a politician’s staff who work almost exclusively for a politician and consultants who look for a new roster of candidates every election cycle.  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.

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.

This is How Palin Supporters Roll

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 11, 2012

By Adrienne Ross –

No one gives a speech like Governor Palin–and the reason for that is quite simple. When she speaks about America, about conservatism, about taking our country back, she means it. She speaks from the heart, and it shows.

As the keynote speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference this evening, the Governor raised the roof in one of the most passionate speeches I’ve heard her give. She further fired up a crowd that was already red hot with anticipation of her address to conservatives from across the nation.

ABC reports:

The most resounding speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference came not from a presidential candidate, or an elected official — but from Sarah Palin.

The screams and cheers that filled the spacious ballroom in which Palin spoke Saturday felt at times like they belonged at a Justin Bieber concert. A dozen times the conservatives at the conference leaped to their feet to applaud Palin, as she threw them line after line about beating President Obama and reclaiming “traditional values.”

“The president says small Americans, small-town Americans — we bitterly cling to our religion and our guns,” Palin said, referring to a comment Obama made in the last election, as the audience rose and cheered. “You say, I say, we say — keep your change. We’ll keep our God. We’ll keep our guns.”


“In America, we believe that competition strengthens us,” she said. “Competition relates to victory in 2012. We must stay true to our principles. I believe that the competition has got to keep going. But let’s make sure that the competition brings out the best in our party.

“We know that the far left and their media allies can’t beat us on the issues, so instead they’ll distort our records,” she added. “Let’s not do the job for them, OK, Republicans? OK, independents?”

Palin, wearing a bright-red blouse, black skirt and heels, spent her time on the stage bashing both Obama and Washington. But for all the contempt she had for Obama, she borrowed liberally from his most famous statements.

Perhaps alluding to Obama’s famous red-state/blue-state speech from the 2004 Democratic convention, Palin said in one of her frequent rhyming lines that Americans aren’t “red” or “blue.” She concluded, as the conservatives rose to their feet again, “We’re red, white and blue, and President Obama, we are through with you.”

“Hope and change — yeah, you’ve got to hope things change,” she added to laughs and more cheers.

At one point shouts of “USA!” broke out in the room. As it turned out, it was in response to some protesters who, apparently, don’t know how Governor Palin’s supporters roll:

For the first time at the three-day conference known as CPAC in Washington, protesters disrupted a speech. But the response from Palin’s loyal supporters was fierce. As protesters chanted at her from the back of the room at the Marriott, a man in the back row leaped over his chair, ran toward them and screamed, “Get the hell out of here, you asshole!”

The protesters were kicked out as others in the room began chanting “USA! USA!” followed quickly by “Sarah! Sarah!”

Read the full piece here.

The man’s language was more colorful than I would have used, but his actions are representative of Americans who are fed up with people trying to occupy space, violating others’ First Amendment rights while citing their own, and destroying everything in their path. His actions also demonstrate the readiness of the Governor’s supporters to defend her against incessant attacks by people who want to make her sit down and shut up, something which simply is not going to happen.

Birthday Message For Governor Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 11, 2012

By Adrienne Ross –

Today is Governor Palin’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Gov! I speak for myself and a multitude of other Americans who are appreciative of all that you do for the cause of freedom and exceptionalism in this country. There is no other voice so firmly committed to common sense conservatism, and it has not come without a price. You have laid much on the line to fight for our future, and we thank you.

Shortly, you will take to the stage at CPAC and deliver the keynote address, a speech that will, no doubt, set the building on fire! Truth has a way of doing that, doesn’t it?

God bless you today, and may He grace you with many more years.

Has Governor Palin’s Flame Gone Out?

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 10, 2012

By Adrienne Ross –

As I was driving tonight, I was listening to Michael Savage, which generally I do only in small doses. Tonight only confirmed the wisdom in that approach. For someone who prides himself on being brilliant and well-versed in every issue of the day, he certainly appears to be out of the political loop. He asked a question that shocked me: “What ever happened to Sarah Palin?” as if she has gone AWOL without a trace. And he was serious. He then went on to say that she has flamed out.

Flamed out? Is he talking about the same Governor Palin Scott Conroy wrote about today in an article called “Sarah Palin Set to Re-emerge at CPAC,” an article which, in spite of its title, actually acknowledges that she hasn’t gone anywhere?

Despite her lower profile in recent months, Palin has left a mark on this presidential cycle through her frequent TV appearances on the Fox News Channel, which she conducts from a home studio in Alaska.

Governor Palin has been the go-to player of presidential politics on Hannity, On the Record, Justice w/ Judge Jeanine, and Special Report. She even made an appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s The Factor, something viewers had not seen in many months. Is this the same Governor Palin Michael Savage thinks has disappeared into the night? He even stated that he knows more about these things than the rest of us do, and he proceeded to tell listeners how much he likes what she has to say but isn’t a fan, that women don’t like her, that she would not have been an electable candidate, blah, blah, blah. What universe do such “brilliant” people live on?

Anyone paying attention knows full well that the Governor, while remaining mostly in Alaska lately, has probably had more successive television appearances than she had when many expected her to throw her own hat in the 2012 GOP presidential ring. While I, like many others, never wanted to hear her say, “I don’t need a title to make a difference,” she certainly has demonstrated that she meant exactly what she said. Even without a title, her opinions have been sought after, and her wisdom has been echoed. She has talked about the necessity of vetting in this primary election season. She has pushed for the primary process to continue for the purpose of producing the best candidate who can defeat President Obama. She has laid out the positives of each candidate, while pointing out areas of weakness or aspects of each record that need clarification. She has repeatedly worked to unify the party by maintaining that every GOP candidate is “infinitely better” than President Obama. Without question, she has been an important part of this 2012 election cycle, and her influence does not appear to be waning at all.

Perhaps Mr. Savage will emerge, from wherever he’s been hibernating, to catch Governor Palin this weekend as she gives the keynote address that multitudes of conservatives will gather to hear tomorrow at CPAC, or to tune in the next day when Chris Wallace interviews her on Fox News Sunday. The question, therefore, to pose to Michael Savage–self-professed know-it-all that he is–would be “Where have you been?” because Governor Palin hasn’t gone anywhere. On the contrary, she has remained in the fight to progress this country and to help make sure the next four years are better than the previous four. She has stayed in the battle without the support of the establishment, without selling her soul to DC insiders, and yes, without a title. However, she has done so with the support of we the people who recognize that she is still the boldest common sense, politically astute conservative voice in the country today.

Not only has her flame not gone out, but Governor Palin continues to set aflame the masses of Americans who love their country, respect their Constitution, and embrace the message of American restoration that she regularly trumpets–and is asked to trumpet. In fact, she blows that trumpet so loudly, so clearly, and so consistently that the only way one can miss it is if his head is buried in the sand.
