Video: Governor Palin and Greta Discuss Cruz, Cheney, RNC, and More

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 1, 2012

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

Governor Palin appeared On the Record tonight and talked to Greta Van Susteren about a number of topics. They discussed the Ted Cruz’s victory, Chick-fil-A, traditional marriage, Dick Cheney, and the Republican National Convention. The Governor, I believe, was more vocal than I’ve ever seen her in calling out the GOP establishment and their little inside baseball games, where they seem content to use her as the baseball. Despite it all, as she expressed tonight, she continues to work hard and fight for America’s restoration.

Excellent kick-butt interview:

Governor Palin and the Constitution

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 17, 2011

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

One of the most celebrated amendments to the United States Constitution, the signing of which is celebrated today on Constitution Day, is the First Amendment. It grants us, among other things, the freedom of speech.

Tara Jollie, a friend of Governor Palin and former staffer in her administration, who granted me an interview after Frank Bailey released his book of lies about her in May, reflected on the day Governor Palin announced her resignation from the Governor’s office. Today is perhaps the best possible day for Jollie to have written this article, for in it she acknowledged that the Governor’s difficult decision allowed her to reclaim her freedom of speech:

Monday came and, sure enough, there she was by the elevator packing some of her personal belongings from her office to her car. All my composure went flying out the window. I went to help her carry things and could not stop my tears. She did what she could to comfort me then we went for a little ride just to have a little alone time. When she dropped me off I was still sad, but happy for her to get her personal freedom back; especially the freedom of speech. I thought “What a strong role model for anyone who feels they don’t have a choice in their lives. There is always a choice!” This simple message is incredibly powerful when seen demonstrated in living color.

I know there were those with ulterior motives who pretended to support Sarah as candidate then Governor, and many more that underestimated her. I credit most of that behavior to a collective resistance to change, and, in some cases gender bias, unbridled greed, and/or a great desire for position and power. The establishment absolutely had to get rid of this rabble-rouser. No one knew this better than the appointees within the bureaucracy. The same ones who laughed at her around the water cooler before the election were sucking up like crazy after the election – trying to save their jobs until they could get rid of her. No entity resists change as well as a bureaucracy, and so the dance of sabotage began and continued to the end of her term.

[…]

Our political system needs dramatic reform. A lofty goal, so simple and so obvious. Kudos to those determined to make a difference. Sarah Palin is beating the drum for reform. Although unintentional, resigning set her free to go that direction. Her decision to step away from her office demonstrated strength, not weakness. She really is her own person.

Anyone who thought Governor Palin would sit around and collect a paycheck if she could not be productive does not know her. Anyone who expected her to sit down and shut up couldn’t possibly have heard or read anything she said on the campaign trail. Her slogan was Take a Stand!

When Governor Palin returned from the campaign trail, the partisan vultures tried to pick her apart. Their goal was to punish her for daring to accept Senator McCain’s request to help lead this country and for exercising her freedom of speech to speak out against waste, overtaxing, and an utter disregard for our Constitutional freedoms. They wanted to silence her commitment to speaking up for life, the free market, and American exceptionalism, and they especially took umbrage at her fearlessness in calling out President Obama in the process. They wanted to enslave her, and they were willing to allow frivolous ethics charges to cost Alaska two million dollars–and then some. She vowed when she resigned to continue to fight and continue to speak, even without a title. She has certainly done so.

It is without hyperbole that I say no one else has undergone the vile, despicable, and hurtful accusations and verbal attacks Governor Palin has. She is continually subjected to actions that simply would not be tolerated if the target were anyone else. The selective outrage of people on the left and the right is rather telling; it reveals the one they fear most. Such hatred toward this wife, mother, and conservative public figure begs the question: What is it about her they hate so much and seek to destroy? The answer becomes more obvious each day. It’s the freedom of speech she chooses to exercise. A person’s right is only as powerful as her willingness to practice it. Governor Palin respects our Constitution and the rights it affords, and she is not afraid to take full advantage of her First Amendment right to shout the greatness of America from the rooftops and to call out those vices and villains threatening our nation. Lately, she is turning up the heat as she names names in her quest to shine a spotlight on crony capitalism, corporate welfare, and the permanent political class. For this, she is maligned, slandered, and harassed in the most wretched ways–and still she perseveres, even without a title.

By the end of this month, Governor Palin will let us know if she’s willing to seek a title, the highest title in the land, to effect change–reform–in a greater capacity. No doubt, even with such a title, perhaps even more so, she will continue to praise the beauty of our Constitution and to exercise every freedom it guarantees, including the beloved freedom of speech.

Concerning Governor Palin’s future, Tara Jollie states simply:

I, for one, wish her well wherever her destiny takes her. History tells us it won’t be easy.

No, it won’t be easy, but with an army of supporters standing behind her, she will surely emerge victorious. She is, after all, The Undefeated.

Governor Palin on SCOTUS Ruling and Westboro Baptist

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 4, 2011

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

Members of Westboro Baptist Church choose to exercise their First Amendment rights by protesting military funerals with insulting signs that misrepresent Christianity and display a gross lack of respect for those who have paid the ultimate price in service to their country. They disregard grieving loved ones in the name of making a point and having their voices heard.

Yesterday, in an 8-1 decision, the Supreme Court of the United States upheld these people’s rights to continue their hurtful behavior.

Rebecca Hillman reports:

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in favor of the Westboro Baptist Church Wednesday, in a free speech case that challenged the fundamentalist church’s right to protest at military funerals.

The father of Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, a 20 year-old killed in Iraq in 2006, filed a lawsuit against the Westboro Baptist Church after members picketed his son’s funeral. Westboro Baptist Church members protested at the funeral, and have done so at many others, to share their belief that American deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan were God’s punishment for America’s tolerance of homosexuality and abortion. Albert Snyder said the protests at his son’s funeral caused emotional distress.

No doubt it caused emotional distress. These signs have messages on them that say things like “God Hates You” and “God Hates Fags.”

Concerning this ruling, Governor Palin tweeted:

Common sense & decency absent as wacko “church” allowed hate msgs spewed@ soldiers’ funerals but we can’t invoke God’s name in public square

Her tweet was followed by a plethora of complaints from people and media outlets accusing her of not understanding or respecting the First Amendment, of disagreeing with the ruling. But Governor Palin wasn’t commenting on her view of the First Amendment or on the ruling. She was commenting on the issue of inconsistency, which she discussed with The Daily Caller.

“Obviously my comment meant that when we’re told we can’t say ‘God bless you’ in graduation speeches or pray before a local football game but these wackos can invoke God’s name in their hate speech while picketing our military funerals, it shows ridiculous inconsistency,” Palin told TheDC. “I wasn’t calling for any limit on free speech, and it’s a shame some folks tried to twist my comment in that way. I was simply pointing out the irony of an often selective interpretation of free speech rights.”

Speaking for myself, it’s sad that people who claim to be Christians would choose to protest in the manner members of Westboro Baptist are. And they have no intention of slowing down. After the Supreme Court’s ruling, as ABC News reports, they will multiply their efforts:

Leaders of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church today vowed to “quadruple” the number of protests at military funerals around the country following a Supreme Court ruling that the displays are protected under the First Amendment.

First Amendment Rights–Except for Palin, Says Liberal Hypocrites

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 16, 2010

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


Sheya has a good post over at Conservatives4Palin. In it he puts the hypocrisy of the Left on full display. It’s amazing how the rules change whenever Governor Palin is the topic of discussion.

Sheya writes:

When it comes to the double standard and hypocrisy towards Governor Palin, Greg Gutfeld said it best: “Palin’s Great at Exposing Liberal Idiots”. Every time Governor Palin does or says something the left come out of the woodworks to compete on who can prove themselves to be the biggest idiot.

But when it comes to the hypocrisy, the Ground Zero Mosque controversy dwarfs anything we’ve ever seen before. Suddenly all those proponents of the mosque have become very concerned about freedom of religion as long as it’s not Governor Palin who exercises that right, for when Governor Palin merely utters “God” she is quickly pronounced by those same “freedom of religion” proponents as a radical extremist.

Those same proponents also cite the First Amendment as reason to allow the erection of the mosque. Once again the First Amendment only applies as long as Governor Palin doesn’t exercise her First Amendment rights. Every time Governor Palin posts a Facebook note or sends out a tweet those who are so concerned about the First Amendment are the ones calling on her to “Shut Up” “Go Away” or simply just die.

Governor Palin has not argued that the builders of the mosque don’t have the “right to build it” – they do. Similarly freedom of speech doesn’t justify one running around swearing or verbally abusing people, although “legally” one may be free to do so, it is still morally wrong. The same applies to building the mosque at ground zero. Yes it’s “legal” but it still is morally wrong. There is a fine line between “Legally” right and “Morally” wrong.

Governor Palin is a private citizen and deserves the right to voice her opinion on anything she wishes. No one has the right to tell her to shut up. No one is forced to agree with her, we can all debate the issue and let the one who makes the strongest argument win.

Read the rest here.

The wild thing is, Governor Palin drives the Left so crazy they lose all control of their faculties, which keeps them from recognizing their own hypocrisy that is so obvious to those of us in our Right minds.
