Palin: Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition Roundup

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on November 11, 2013

Gov. Sarah Palin spoke at the Family Banquet for the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition Saturday night and by all accounts, her message was well-received. The following was posted to Palin’s Facebook page:

It was wonderful to see so many inspiring and patriotic Iowans tonight at the Faith & Freedom Coalition dinner. They join other hard working Americans as the wind beneath the wings of our great republic, and their hard work and activism make a difference!

Tony Lee over at Breitbart has had two articles featured on Palin’s Iowa appearance, the first being “China Will Be ‘Foreign Master’ If America Doesn’t Resolve Debt Crisis”

Saturday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin compared the United States’ debt to slavery, warning Americans about the dangers of being “beholden” to China if the nation’s debt crisis is not resolved.

Speaking at an Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition event to kick off the 2014 midterm season, Palin said the country’s “free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China.”

“It’s going to be like slavery when that note is due,” Palin said of the debt the country is accumulating. “We’re going to be beholden to a foreign master… because there is no plan coming out of Washington, D.C. to stop the incurrence of debt, is there?”  More

An additional article by Tony Lee,  “Americans Shouldn’t Have Faith in ‘Arrogant’ Church of Big Government” said:

On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted the “scrooges” waging a “war on Christmas” and their “zealot-like” faith in an “arrogant” church of big government run by the supposed best and the brightest that has only caused “irreparable harm” to America.  <>She said the “arrogant” church of government does not have “faith in your ability to govern yourself,” so “you should not have faith in it” because “it does not have faith in us.”

Speaking at an Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition dinner, Palin said “enough is enough” of the “politically-correct police out there” and blasted the scrooges waging a “War on Christmas.”

Palin said Americans needed to take action to resist the “fundamental transformation” of society that many Americans “never signed up for.” Echoing themes from her book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas, which comes out on Tuesday, Palin said that “religious freedom is under attack,” and religion is “pushed out of the public square” and “censored.” Palin said one will see the censorship and double standards “blatantly come this holiday season.” More

While in Iowa, Palin also drew attention to “Puppy Jake Foundation”,  a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping military veterans through the assistance of well bred and highly trained service dogs.

From Palin’s Facebook page:

Todd and I had a great time visiting with friends — furry and otherwise — in Des Moines tonight supporting the Puppy Jake Foundation. Thanks to our hosts Becky Beach and the entire Puppy Jake team for allowing us to highlight the positive work they’re doing with these service dogs to support our brave soldiers returning home. It was great to visit with Sen. Mike Lee there tonight, too!

Now, hopefully Todd’s been won over and will agree it’s time to add another set of paws to the family! Please “like” the Puppy Jake Foundation on Facebook and visit their website to find out how you can help our vets. (And put in a good word to Todd for me… he’s the one who’s always said, “The more, the merrier!”)

PuppyJake

The DesMoines Register also featured a story on the Puppy Jake Foundation and entitled it “Sarah Palin uses star power to shine spotlight on Iowa service dogs”:

Sarah Palin is using her star power to draw attention to an Iowa program that trains service dogs for injured military veterans – and the donations immediately started rolling in.

Palin, a conservative pundit and 2008 vice presidential candidate, cuddled several puppies from the Puppy Jake Foundation at a gathering at a central Iowa home Friday night organized so that she could meet the dogs’ raisers/trainers/foster parents.

“She was talking to her husband, Todd, and kind of razzing him about getting a puppy and how adorable they were,” said Robin Lickteig, the puppy trainer who hosted the get-together at her Cumming home.  More

PALIN: Will We Stand for This?

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 22, 2013

Breitbart_oped_image

“These Obama administration scandals are a sad and stark reminder that only limited government can ensure liberty.”

Breitbart has published the following op-ed from Sarah Palin. She asks the right question, that being, “will we stand for this”?

Going Rogue in the Wrong Direction

As more information about the IRS scandal trickles out daily, the White House’s involvement is becoming clearer. Those of us who’ve been warning about the demise of freedom with Barack Obama’s efforts to “fundamentally transform” our great nation are about to witness some sad vindication. Will awakened Americans finally join us in saying “enough is enough”?

The president would like us to believe that he only learned about the IRS corruption from watching the news. But we recently learned that the White House was actively working with the IRS on how to roll out the story of this scandal. So, Mr. President, how can you have your staff work on the roll out of the biggest controversy since Watergate, and yet claim that you only heard about it by watching the news with the rest of us?

For the president to deny any knowledge of what was brewing and to claim to know nothing about the Benghazi cover-up or anything about anything White House-related lately, he’s either a liar or a hugely incompetent CEO. You decide.

Yesterday, we also learned that the top IRS official involved in the targeting scandal is planning on pleading the Fifth during her Congressional hearings. That’s keen – she’ll be able to enjoy her Fifth Amendment rights in a hearing about how her intimidating organization denied Americans the ability to fully exercise their First Amendment rights.

Keep in mind that the IRS considers you guilty until proven innocent when they audit you.  The Fifth Amendment doesn’t apply.

This scandal is not just about the IRS targeting Americans to deny them tax-except status or subjecting them to harassing retaliatory audits. The IRS also leaked to left-wing reporters the confidential application information submitted by conservative groups.

The IRS claims that their leaking of information was “inadvertent and unintentional disclosures by the employees involved.” They at first blamed the entire IRS scandal on a couple of employees who “went rogue,” but we soon found out that this was just more malarkey coming from the president’s spokesman. But even if these were “inadvertent and unintentional disclosures,” is that supposed to make us feel better? With the IRS running Obamacare, what are the chances that our confidential information and medical records will “inadvertently” and “unintentionally” be disclosed? Please remember that some of us warned America about the dangers of having the IRS play such a big role with the administration of Obamacare. We were laughed at and mocked relentlessly back then. It sure doesn’t seem funny now, does it?

This IRS scandal is especially terrible because Americans live in fear of the IRS like no other entity because this monstrous bureaucracy has the power to take your hard-earned money. Your wages are the sum of your labors; hence, the IRS has the power to steal the fruits of your labors. Average Americans live in fear of making an error on their tax returns that could cost them massive amounts of money, plus their reputation and good name.  If a small business makes a mistake, the IRS can shut them down and send them to jail.

The IRS has always been the face of intimidating and controlling big government. Now it’s the face of corrupt big government that actively attacks the people it is supposed to serve. This isn’t the change America was hoping for, Mr. President, but it certainly is transformative.

Average everyday Americans like my dad and his non-political buddies are outraged by this IRS scandal, perhaps more so than all the other White House fiascos that are making the radical Left’s intentions crystal clear. It’s because this IRS cluster hits close to home for everyone. It’s tangible proof of how a corrupt government can intimidate and target a person’s record, reputation, and life, and make them feel helpless.

These Obama administration scandals are a sad and stark reminder that only limited government can ensure liberty. At our core, we Americans just want to be left alone to live freely, peacefully, and productively.  More

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.

Included in Palin’s post was a link to this Breitbart article written by Tony Lee:

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: Government, Stay Out of my Refrigerator!

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 11, 2013

Earlier today a New York state judge blocked Mayor Bloomberg’s decision to ban the sale of sugary drinks over 16 ounces. Judge Milton Tingling cited the law as “fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences.”  Tony Lee over at Brietbart News has an excellent article with more of the details.

In response to this decision, Sarah Palin tweeted the following:

Victory in NYC for liberty-loving soda drinkers. To politicians with too much time on their hands we say: Govt, stay out of my refrigerator!

Rock on Sarah!

Boortz: Why the Liberal Hatred of Citizens With Guns

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 14, 2013

Sarah Palin shared the following Townhall article by Neil Boortz via her Facebook page earlier today:

 

You’re snug in your cabin in the mountains outside of Big Bear, California. Snug, but fearful. They’re searching for a killer near you. A terrifying, heavily armed former cop from Los Angeles who has gone on a killing rampage.

Suddenly you hear gunshots. You part the curtains to look outside … and there’s the man whose picture you’ve seen countless times on TV over the past few days running toward your house as he returns fire to police officers in pursuit.

Just a few weeks ago you had been considering buying an AR-15 just in case it might be needed to defend your home from predators of the two and the four-legged variety. They don’t call the place Big Bear for nothing. You couldn’t buy one, though, because private ownership of these weapons had been outlawed. That didn’t stop the killer. He was carrying one … that along with several pistols. The law didn’t seem to deter him at all. The murderer was still far enough away that you could stop him with one shot through your window, but that option had been taken away by anti-gun zealots.

Somehow you don’t feel comfortable with only your handgun and it’s seven-shot magazine to protect you from this approaching danger. You know the killer, who is rapidly nearing your door, is much more heavily armed than you. Things aren’t looking all that rosy for you and your family right now.

Why did this have to happen? Why were these liberals — these Democrats — so hell-bent on reducing your capacity to act in your own self-defense in a situation just such as this?  More

Palin: Chris was a Wonderful Friend, Good Man & True American Hero

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 4, 2013

chris-kyle-stars-earn-stripesSo many of us were deeply saddened to hear of the tragic and untimely death of American hero Chris Kyle.  Words seem inadequate at times such as these.  How do you thank someone who has willingly served and placed his life on the line in order to preserve this country’s way of life, her Constitution and until his last moment, someone who was trying to make the difference in the life of a fellow soldier?   My deepest sympathies and prayers are with the Kyle family.

Posted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and many friends of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle tonight. Todd and I first met Chris in Pella, Iowa, when he helped out with security for the premiere of the film “The Undefeated.” And later we became friends with Chris when he was on “Stars Earn Stripes” with Todd. Chris was a wonderful man, a good friend, and a true American hero who loved our country and served honorably. He was loved and admired by so many, and he will never be forgotten.

– Todd and Sarah Palin

Palin: Honor the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on January 22, 2013

MLK

Sarah Palin reminds us of the sacrifices made by Americans in the name of freedom and offered the following message on January 21st to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

From Palin’s Facebook page:

 

Today Americans honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It’s been 30 years since President Reagan signed this holiday into law in 1983, followed by its celebration three years later. We continue to look to Dr. King’s teachings which show us that our efforts—though seemingly futile at times—really do matter, that one person’s faith in something greater than self can lift all mankind, and that character alone should be the means whereby a person is measured, rather than the external things on which our society fixates.

This year marks 50 years since Martin Luther King stood before the Lincoln Memorial to proclaim his dream and remind the world that 100 years had passed since President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Now, 150 years after that historic signing, Americans still stand with both these men, ever committed to the freedoms that they worked to secure. They dedicated their lives for freedom, including freedom from stifling, overbearing governments. We will not squander what their efforts have wrought, we will not take for granted the blood that has been shed, and we will not fail to do our part to help preserve the freedoms that are uniquely American. In Dr. King’s own words, “Let freedom ring!” So, to these freedoms we cling so that future generations may know and love the America that those before us so sacrificially gave.

I encourage you to take time to reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King’s efforts to secure freedom and true equality and what those efforts have added to our lives today.

Netanyahu: “July 4 is a time to not take freedom for granted.”

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 4, 2012

Video retrieved from  

Prime Minister Netanyahu recorded an Independence Day greeting for America.  Netanyahu is a true statesman and carries himself with the dignity of the great man he is.  America is longing for another statesman President of his caliber.  In this address, Netanyahu actually sounds more American than our current President.  He expresses the ideals that have made America great, the ideals that are rooted in America’s JudeoChristian heritage.

Here is a transcript of Netanyahu’s address following a brief introduction.

Even though I can’t be there in person, I want to express my appreciation to President Obama and the American people as you celebrate Independence Day.  You see, because as Israel’s prime minister, I appreciate deeply all that America has done for Israel.  And as the leader of one of the world’s most vibrant democracies – you know how vibrant – I appreciate all the great sacrifices that America has made in order to advance liberty and democracy throughout the world.

America’s Revolution was founded on two very powerful ideas – first, that people should have the right to elect their own leaders and be sovereign over their own destiny.  And second, that the power of those leaders, the power of governments, must be checked so that individual rights will be protected.  I’m always moved, no matter how many years pass, I’m always moved when I read Thomas Jefferson’s words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Precisely.  The American Revolution brought these two powerful ideas together, and they made America a beacon of liberty for all humanity.  Now, you know that the Middle East is undergoing a profound and a stark transformation.   The question arises:  Will these twin ideas, will they become rooted in our region too?  All those who value freedom should remember that to be a real democracy, it is not enough to have a government that represents the majority of the people.  Real democracy also means having a government that respects the rights of each and every individual.  A real democracy is not really about holding popular election – it’s about what happens between elections.  It means ensuring that no one is above the law.  It means protecting free speech, freedom of the press,  freedom of religion.  It means upholding the rights of minorities, gays, women , children – everyone – by ensuring popular sovereignty and individual rights.

The nations of the region can join America and Israel in being genuine democracies.  Now, will this happen?  In the near term, I think we will all agree there is ample reason for skepticism. The forces throughout the region that are rising are not exactly  – how shall it put it – they’re not exactly Jeffersonians – but in the long term, in the long term, I believe there is reason for hope, because with the spread of information technology, it will become increasingly difficult to keep young minds closed, cloistered in darkness.

Ultimately, the power of freedom is bound to prevail.   Ultimately,  people throughout the Middle East will enjoy the rights that we in free societies too often take for granted.   Ladies and gentlemen, July 4 is a time to not take freedom for granted.  It’s a time to be thankful that history granted America the power to match its ideals with action.  It’s a time for free people everywhere to send their best wishes to the United States of America, to the country that has done so much to make the world a safer, freer, and more peaceful place.  So on behalf of the people of Israel, let me wish President Obama and all the American people a happy Independence Day – 0r as they say in small towns across America – Ha’atzmaut.

Oh, say can you see, past November …

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 4, 2012

On Independence Day, we once again celebrate the birth of our country in 1776.  However, many of us are peering anxiously ahead as Francis Scott Key did that night in 1814 when he penned our national anthem.  British soldiers had burned Washington, and the British Navy was now trying to take Baltimore during the War of 1812.  Similarly, patriotic Americans today are watching an epic battle between those who would preserve our Republic and those who would dismantle it.  Like Key, we are looking past November 6 to see if our Republic will survive.

This time our weapon is the vote. Our battle will be in every town and city and rural area in our nation as voters are mustered to put patriots into office and to remove those from office who misrepresent us.  Our ultimate battle is to take back the White House and restore our constitutional form of government.  It is critical that we do that in November to prevent another four years of political carnage.

Time is short, and we have an urgent message to get out and an “Army of Davids” to deliver it. As Americans have proven so many times in the past, with God’s help, we can overcome seemingly insurmountable odds in our battle for justice and freedom.   We must remember that “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”  (Edmund Burke)   Or put another way:  “All that is needed for the forces of evil to succeed is for enough good men to remain silent.”   With our voice and our vote, we will win this battle for the soul of our nation. November can’t come soon enough!

Palin: Here We Are

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 24, 2012

Recently posted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:

Pelosi asks “Where are the women?” against the HHS mandate? Kim Daniels & Helen Alvare proudly say “Here we are”!

The above is in reference to the government mandate for religious organizations to provide contraception and related services, i.e. abortion, to employees even if it is a violation of conscience.  Governor Palin then referenced an article entitled “Here We Are” from the The National Review.

Like countless other women, we’ve been closely following the Obama administration’s attempt to compel religious institutions to provide contraceptive coverage in violation of their beliefs. And like countless other women, over the past several days we’ve heard House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and others repeatedly ask those who oppose the contraceptive mandate, “Where are the women?”

Here we are.  More
