Gov. Palin vs the Other Debaters

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 24, 2011

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

I have watched each of the Republican presidential debates, finding them mildly entertaining, if nothing else. Last night’s debate ran short of entertainment, however, and I’m becoming less and less impressed. If I have to hear Mitt Romney and Rick Perry argue over what’s in their books one more time, I might throw one at the television. What did candidates do before they wrote books? Are these Oprah Book Club events or presidential debates?

Honestly, the two so-called frontrunners aren’t doing much for me at all. Romney, of course, is as plastic as they come, and I don’t believe anything he says. He’s a flip flopper, and I simply don’t trust him. Perry is preferred to Romney, but he’s a horrible debater, and he’s on the wrong side of the immigration issue. Does he really believe that illegal aliens should get to have a free education in this country? Don’t even get me started on Ron Paul. Can you say foreign policy?

Herman Cain has a great personality, a warm sense of humor, and refreshing authenticity. I think he’s a great guy, but I don’t think he’s ready to be President of the United States.

Obviously, the person I believe is ready to move America forward is Governor Palin, but she has yet to declare. I’m still waiting, and I believe an announcement is coming soon. I look forward to what she’ll add to these debates. Not only is she solid on the issues, but she can articulate her stand on these issues based on intelligence, experience, and common sense.

Take a look back to her 2006 Alaska gubernatorial debate against Tony Knowles and Andrew Halcro after she beat Frank Murkowski in the Primary election. The first video is the full debate, and the second one has YouTube highlights.

Things will drastically change once she enters the race. I look forward to someone who will cut through the bull, call a spade a spade, challenge candidates on their records, spotlight her own, and revitalize the American people.

Sarah Palin’s Record on Pardons And Clemency Based On Reality And Common Sense

Posted by Gary P Jackson on December 7, 2009

In the wake of the slaughter of four police officers in the state of Washington, and how a liberal policy on pardons and clemency played a roll in this tragedy, we decided to look into the record of Governor Sarah Palin on this issue.

Our research finds that no pardons were issued by Governor Palin. We did find that in the wake of the corrupt Murkowski administration, Governor Palin championed, and signed into law, legislation that mandates the Governor, as well as the parole board, work hand in hand on any grant of pardon, or clemency. The law also mandates that victims are notified of any pending grant of pardon, and are allowed to participate in the process.

From the website PardonPower:

Alaska: Palin and the Pardon Power

In honor of John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin for the vice-presidency, PardonPower found this article from February 20, 2007:

Juneau, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin today signed Senate Bill 46 and House Bill 69. The Governor was joined by Senator Donny Olson and Representative Ralph Samuels at the bill signing.

Senate Bill 46 extends the deadline for coastal communities to revise their plans for environmental oversight and development. By signing SB 46, coastal districts will have until September 1, 2007, to revise their plans. Without this extension, 12 districts that make up 70 percent of Alaska’s coastline are in jeopardy of losing their ability to have local involvement in their coastal areas.

I thank Senator Olson for sponsoring this bill,” said Governor Palin. “I know that these coastal districts have worked hard on their revised plans and by extending the deadline, we can ensure they will not lose local control.”

House Bill 69 now makes it mandatory for the governor and the Board of Parole to work together to ensure any decision on clemency is based on a thorough review of the case, and made in deference to victims and their families.

In a perfect world, this bill wouldn’t be necessary,” said Governor Palin. “Unfortunately, we all know why such legislation has come through with unanimous support and why I sign this bill without hesitation.”

In his final hours in office, Governor Murkowski granted an executive pardon to a company convicted of criminally negligent homicide. Whitewater Engineering Corporation pleaded no contest in 2001 to the charge in connection with the 1999 death of one of its employees. The pardon was granted on November 30, 2006. No one from the Murkowski administration notified the victim’s family of the request for clemency or that the pardon was granted.

HB 69 not only ensures that victims of crimes are notified of the governor’s intent to grant clemency but also allows them to become part of the process.

The power to grant pardons and clemency are great responsibilities a Governor and President are given by the state and United States Constitutions, respectively. It’s serious business that can easily be corrupted by either dishonesty or faulty judgment. It’s very refreshing to see that, as Governor, Sarah Palin understood and appreciated the power she was given and the great trust the people of Alaska had placed in her.

Governor Palin’s common sense approach to this great power and trust the people of Alaska placed in her, resulted in a law that will make it harder for someone of lesser character or judgment to misuse this power and trust.

It also says something that Sarah was willing to diminish her power for the good of the process. Not many in politics would do this as, for many, politics is all about the power, not the service. This is yet another example of Sarah Palin putting the needs and desires of the people above all else.
