Palin: “I Had To Buck The System”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 9, 2013

Sarah Palin appeared as a guest on the Sean Hannity Radio Show in the 4 o’clock hour today.  Palin talks Tea Party, taking on establishment Republicans (bucking the system), 2014 mid-terms, and the importance of looking for “new blood and new energy” candidates.

Mark Levin Rips GOP Establishment & Credits Sarah Palin

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on April 26, 2012

Mark Levin rips into National Review Online, the GOP establishment (Bush team) and the current meme that Governor Sarah Palin was not properly vetted in 2008. Levin correctly states that “many of us voted for him (John McCain) because of her”.

“But not for her, John McCain would have been a bigger loser than he turned out to be.  The only energy in that campaign was the result of Sarah Palin.”

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.
