Second Anniversary of Restoring Honor Rally Today

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 28, 2012

Two years ago today,  Governor Palin was a keynote speaker at the Restoring Honor Rally in Washington, D. C.   Organized by Glenn Beck,  the rally was  a ” celebration of America’s heroes and heritage.”   An  estimated 300K to 500K people attended the event.

Meghan Casserly at Forbes Woman wrote this about Governor Palin’s speech:

Well-coiffed, as always, and dressed in a white suit, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, here are some highlights from Sarah Palin‘s remarks:

“Thank you so much! Thank you, are you not so proud to be an American!”

“It is so humbling to get to be here today with you patriots., you who are motivated and engaged and concerned, knowing never to retreat. I must assume that you too, knowing that we must not fundamentally transform America as some would want, we must 

restore America and restore her honor.”

“Now I’ve been asked to speak today not as a politician, but something much more. I’ve been asked to speak as the mother of a soldier and I am proud of that distinction.”

“Say what you want to say about me but i raised a combat vet and you can’t take that away from me.”

“No woman gives birth thinking that she will hand over her child to her country but that is what women have done since ancient days.”

“If you look for the virtues that have sustained our country you will find it in those who wear the uniform.”

“Our history made this day be the change point. Look around you, you are not alone! You are Americans!”

“You have the same still spine and moral courage of Lincoln and Martin Luther King.”

“With gratitude to our men and women in uniform let’s stand together, let’s stand with honor and restore America!”

Palin-Beck ‘Defending the Republic’ Appearance Reported

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 16, 2011

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

FM NewsTalk 97.1 out of St. Louis reports “Defending the Republic,” an event scheduled for October 7th at 7:30 p.m. To my knowledge, Governor Palin has not made a public statement about this function, but if/when she does, I will post her comments.

Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are coming to town for a once in a lifetime event and you don’t want to miss it. FM NewsTalk 97.1 and Hansen’s Tree Service proudly present Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck, Friday October 7th, at the Family Arena.

[...]

Join FM NewsTalk 97.1 as two of our country’s leading conservative standard bearers share the same stage. Sarah Palin first made history on December 4, 2006 when she was sworn in as the first female governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped her to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket.

Glenn Beck, known for his quick wit, candid opinions, and engaging personality, has attracted millions of viewers and listeners throughout the United States with The Glenn Beck Program. His radio show is heard on over 400 stations. It is the third highest-rated national radio talk show among adults ages 25 to 54.

Do not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the fusion of two intellectual conservatives as they Defend the Republic on the Family Arena stage.

More here.

The general public will be able to purchase tickets this Friday, August 19th, through Metrotix.

For the benefit of those who have voiced concern that this new event in October means Governor Palin has decided not to run for President, Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics tweets the following nerve-calmer:

@GOP12 Am told the Palin/Beck appearance was arranged 6 months ago, so I wouldn’t read any tea leaves there

The Sarah Palin Show?

Posted by joshpainter on April 12, 2011

With the news that Glenn Beck will leave his afternoon Fox News hour for new ventures, Megan Fox at NewsReal Blog opines that Roger Ailes should fill Beck’s slot with a replacement who, like Beck, “makes the Left put their full-blown moonbattery on display.” Among the 10 potential candidates to take over the 5 PM slot on Fox News she suggests is Gov. Palin:

Leftists suffer from a derangement syndrome even more acute than the one attached to George Bush when they talk about, read about, write about or even think about Sarah Palin. The second she appears in public, they are programmed like Terminators to lock on and destroy by any means necessary. Nothing is off limits, not even her physically disabled toddler. It’s sad, but it’s a great opportunity to expose the mentally unstable Left to regular folks. They are never more unattractive than when they are excoriating the Palins.

A show hosted by Palin would offer ample opportunities to tweak the Left. After the news or issues of the day, Palin could feature the “Caribou Barbie Corner” where she could demonstrate how to field-dress a moose or how to butcher a caribou and offer helpful freezing tips. That could segue into a cooking segment where a guest could help her prepare the day’s kill. Todd can get in on the action too in “Todd Time” where he can offer stay-at-home-dads advice and guidance as well as snow machine racing footage. This would drive the Left insane.

The best part would be watching the anti-woman feminists come out of the woodwork to try to strip her of her “womanhood,” further demonstrating the faux feminist agenda has nothing whatsoever to do with women, but with the cause of the Left alone.

[...]

Did I mention the Facebook group entitled “Sarah Palin Must Die?” It has since been removed, but it had over 1,000 members. She is definitely the right person to make the Left jump right off that cliff of civility.

[More]

While the prospect of Sarahcuda making the moonbats bark every weekday afternoon with her own TV program is indeed tantalizing, Palin supporters are hoping that the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate has other plans and higher ambitions.

Some of the other candidates Megan Fox mentions are Tammy Bruce, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Steyn, among others — all of whom have been successful in radio — but we’re not sure that success would carry over to television. Rush, for one, tried it years ago, and found that radio was much better tailored to his style. We like Megan Fox’s #6 pick, Andrew Breitbart:

Andrew Breitbart is some kind of mad genius who has taken the Internet by storm with Big Journalism, Big Hollywood, Big Peace, and Big Government. “Big TV” is the next logical step.

Breitbart’s effect on “progressives” is to drive them into fits of rage almost as intense and insane as the seizures into which our Sarah sends them. “Big TV” would be must-see TV for red-blooded conservatives.

Governor Palin Cooks the Media’s Goose for Thanksgiving

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 25, 2010

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

I’m glad Governor Palin addressed this issue. I just think it’s a pity she had to. This is where Palin Derangement Syndrome has taken us. A slip of the tongue becomes big-time news when the slip was made by someone named Palin. The salivating, rabid reprobates (i.e., the media) cannot even be internally honest enough to admit even to themselves that the Governor simply misspoke, as we all do from time to time. Instead, they pretend that she doesn’t know the difference between North and South Korea. No matter that her previous conversations show that she, of course, not only knows the difference, but is well aware of the issues at play. All truth is sold out for a cheap gotcha moment. Meanwhile, President Obama or then-candidate Obama can make gaffe after gaffe without hardly a word from the lamestream media. Such hypocrisy. This is precisely why people are fed up with politics–from both sides of the aisle.

Governor Palin puts this issue in its proper perspective in her Facebook note, “A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States“:

My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…

Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn’t have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you can’t remember hearing about them, that’s because for the most part the media didn’t consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe – even news anchors.

Obviously, I would have been even more impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems they couldn’t resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline. The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us.

If the media had bothered to actually listen to all of my remarks on Glenn Beck’s radio show, they would have noticed that I refer to South Korea as our ally throughout, that I corrected myself seconds after my slip-of-the-tongue, and that I made it abundantly clear that pressure should be put on China to restrict energy exports to the North Korean regime. The media could even have done due diligence and checked my previous statements on the subject, which have always been consistent, and in fact even ahead of the curve. But why let the facts get in the way of a good story? (And for that matter, why not just make up stories out of thin air – like the totally false hard news story which has run for three days now reporting that I lobbied the producers of “Dancing with the Stars” to cast a former Senate candidate on their show. That lie is further clear proof that the media completely makes things up without doing even rudimentary fact-checking.)

“Hope springs eternal” as the poet says. Let’s hope that perhaps, just maybe, they might get it right next time. When we the people are effective in holding America’s free press accountable for responsible and truthful reporting, then we shall all have even more to be thankful for!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Multiple Sources Debunk Politico’s Palin Hit Piece

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 23, 2010

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

There’s something to be said for learning from the mistakes of others. Yet when it comes to Governor Palin, people can’t seem to do that. After Michael Joseph Gross’s Vanity Fair article that brought shame on him when, one after another, real sources debunked his anonymous sources, Jonathan Martin of Politico puts himself in the same boat with his hit piece.

His article, “Sarah Palin is wreaking havoc on the campaign trail, GOP sources say” makes all types of claims about the Governor, accusing her of being difficult to work with, unaccommodating, and totally unorganized–rude and incompetent basically. He cites “sources” to substantiate his claims. His hit piece has come crashing down on his head, and a retraction and apology are in order. Many are calling for just that.

He claims, for example, that she has rudely backed out of interviews with Mark Levin and Glenn Beck. Lies! In fact, Beck calls it an “out and out lie.” Outraged, here’s what he said about this “trash”:

Error
This video doesn’t exist

Mark Levin calls the piece “a flat out lie” and says “Sarah Palin never backed out of any interview with me.” Listen:

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny…ya just made big mistake lying about Levin, Beck, Rush…U can lie about me, but taking on the Big Guns? Not smart

The hit piece also states that Governor Palin snubbed the Grassley and King campaigns in Iowa. Lies! My fellow blogger and truth seeker, Shane Vander Hart, contacted them himself. This is what Shane wrote (emphasis added):

Eric Woolson, spokesperson for Senator Chuck Grassley’s campaign, for the record said, that the anonymous source “does not represent the Senator’s views.” So evidently Senator Grassley was not displeased with any interaction they had with the Palin camp.

[...]

I have yet to contact the Iowa GOP and will follow-up, but I did talk with Jeff King with Congressman King’s campaign he said that they “didn’t have any inkling that we’d get her for a rally. We would love to have her though.” He said they did not expect that it would work out. He said nobody from their campaign talked with Martin and they certainly don’t have any complaints about Palin.

Click here to read Shane Vander Hart’s full article, which Governor Palin retweeted yesterday.

Not only is Jonathan Martin’s no-name sources lying, even the named sources debunk his claims.

Various other sources, including Big Journalism, also demand a retraction or blast this piece of crap that Politico calls journalism. C4P even received the following from Charlie Davis, CEO of the Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC). It’s an email they sent to Martin himself:

Hey Jonathan,

Hope you’re doing well. Just read your article on Palin and wanted to add my two cents. (this wasn’t requested by anybody and feel free to quote me if you’d like)

As you know the 2010 SRLC was the largest Republican Leadership Conference in 30 years, with more speakers, more press and more attendees than ever before. Governor Palin’s staff was incredibly easy to deal with and very professional.

I interacted with every major GOP personality in the country leading up to the conference and can tell you first hand that the only thing different about Governor Palin was the intensity of the interest from the attendees, sponsors and even other speakers.

She’s easily the most requested surrogate our party has and it’s a shame that Republicans would rather gripe that they can’t get more of her time instead of being appreciative of everything that she does do.

Charlie Davis
President and CEO
2010 Southern Republican Leadership Conference

Today, Governor Palin discussed the issue with Glenn Beck on his radio show. Her modus operandi is to call it as she sees it, so she called Martin a “punk.”

Retrieved from C4P, who retrieved it from The Right Scoop, here you go:

This post is just a buffet of information gathered from my colleagues who care about truth and honesty, who are committed to holding people accountable for what they say and do. The behavior of some who fancy themselves professionals is deplorable. More than that, it’s just plain stupid. These people simply never learn their lesson, nor do they learn from those who have tried the same tactics and failed–over and over again. Palin Derangement Syndrome, with its accompanying fear and desperation, have disabled all their reasoning capabilities.

Those of you who are not yet convinced that there is an all-out determination to destroy Governor Palin, no matter what, please open your eyes. If you really care about truth, embrace it, and work to expose and destroy its enemies everywhere they surface. Governor Palin would be the first to tell you that the words she speaks and the actions she exemplifies should be evaluated as others’ are. However, the lies, the slander, and the attacks on her character are beyond the pale. What her character assassins are not willing to accept, however, is that none of it will cause her to wander off message, cower in fear, or retreat. It only fires her up even more–and fires up those of us who stand in her corner.

Onward and upward…

Sept. 11 events in Alaska: Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Joe Miller

Posted by traceyporreca on September 13, 2010

Yesterday was an eventful day throughout the United States, because on this day 9 years ago, America and it’s people were changed forever. “Time heals all wounds” is the saying, but the wounds are still fresh for many of us, especially for those who lost loved ones on that fateful day. Alaskans, like the rest of America, spent the day honoring and remembering those sacrifices and reflecting on what it means to be an American in the Great State of Alaska.

The early part of this day found me wishing I was somewhere else. My email, facebook and Blackberry were buzzing with the two planned events of the day all of my friends were attending without me – the “Standing Strong For America” rally put on by the Conservative Patriots Group, the most active Tea Party group in the state of Alaska, and the Glen Beck event to be held in Anchorage later that evening. I spent the morning texting and calling friends while on a road trip to Fairbanks. I was over 400 miles away and would not be able to attend either event. Everyone was excited and as the morning wore into the afternoon, I found myself feeling more disconnected from everything that was going on. Then, I had a reality check.

In a parking lot in Fairbanks was a car, a PT Cruiser, with murals painted on all sides and the back. It was a private vehicle honoring Marines and on one side was the picture of a Marine saluting at a funeral. It hit me at that moment, on this day, that my desire to attend these events and be with friends had overshadowed the importance of the day itself. This is a day to hold sacred, to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, and to never forget. I will never forget and let us pray this nation will always remember. In that spirit, and in remembrance, I’d like to share these images and thoughts, with the help of Julie Gillette. Julie is the current president of the Valley Republican Women’s Club, the club I was president of until late June of this year when I relocated. Julie has done a wonderful job as club president. She is a true patriot, a female veteran like myself, a mother and wife, and I am grateful for her help with this post and most of all, her friendship.

The “Standing Strong For America” Rally in Wasilla, Alaska

This rally was held at the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Complex in Wasilla, Alaska. Sponsored by the Conservative Patriots Group (CPG), it was billed as a non-partisan event to remember and honor the significance of the day. Several groups were invited and attended the event. According to Julie, Alaska Senate Candidate Scott McAdams was invited but did not return calls to CPG and was not in attendance. The Valley Republican Women’s Club (VRWC) was in attendance, however, and had a table with information which was manned by several board members to include Carol Doner, Julie Gillette, Carol Ryan, and Jill Frost (pictured below).

Various media outlets speculated there were about 300 in attendance, but according to Julie Gillette, the actual number was around 450. “There were 400 chairs set up and they were full and there were a few people standing in the back as well as the volunteers,” said Julie. I’m not surprised considering the fact that conservative event attendance numbers are often downplayed by the mainstream media. Here is a photo from the Anchorage Daily News confirming Julie’s standing room only account:

The event began with a singing of the National Anthem by Adele Morgan, a very talented local artist (seen here with Julie’s husband Glen).

Dick Stoffel led the Pledge of Allegience and then CPG President Jen Bettine kicked things off. Glen Beigel spoke briefly and then Wasilla Mayor Verne Rupright spoke of his military service and reminded everyone never to forget the events of this day in history. Joe Miller then took the stage. According to the Anchorage Daily News report (ADN), “Miller said the nation was attacked on Sept. 11 ‘because we’re American.’ He said the U.S. is a threat to its enemies because of its ‘exceptionalism,’ its freedoms and constitutional restraint of government.

‘We as a nation have been activated. We’ve been activated through 9/11. We’re now activated in a political sense,’ Miller said. ‘We see a movement across the United States right now that is moving this country in a direction that restores foundations, that restores constitutional principles and makes us proud to be Americans again.’”

Sarah Palin was then introduced as a surprise speaker, to the crowd’s delight. “I thank you from the bottom of my heart for not just welcoming me in my hometown but for being who you are, true patriots holding on to time-tested truths. Knowing some basic principles that again the rest of America I think can learn from so many Alaskans who believe this — those time-tested truths that are based on the government that governs least governs best,” Palin said (according to the ADN report

The mood of those in attendance was described by Julie:

“There were definitely a few tears through the slide show and silence as people relived the day of the attacked. The bagpipes and the timing of playing them at the end of the slide show left many with wet eyes. I was hanging in there until he started playing. Adele Morgan’s beautiful rendition of the National Anthem was amazing. It also created some watery eyes. Mood was mostly positive and upbeat, especially when Joe Miller and Sarah Palin spoke.”

The event lasted about 2 hours and then Julie described a special moment for herself and her husband Glenn:

“I had Glenn take a picture of us at the table before it got really busy. We were not initially going to try to get pictures with Sarah because she was swarmed with people. After the crowd died down, someone motioned to Carol Ryan that we should run over and get pictures before she left. Glenn has taken several pictures of me or our group with Sarah over the past 10 years. He finally got one for himself. We’re so glad to have had the opportunity because she was not able to stick around for the Glenn Beck Meet & Greet, she had a plane to catch.”

I agree with Julie in that the CPG did an amazing job putting on this event. Here is the picture with the group, and with Julie’s husband Glenn. Also included is an ADN photo of Joe Miller Speaking to Glenn.

Finally, video courtesy of the Alaska Dispatch:

Glenn Beck comes to Anchorage

Alaska conservatives and Glenn Beck supporters were anxious to see Beck in Anchorage. The doors to the Dena’ina Center were opened and thousands of people who were standing in a line that wrapped around the building, started to file in. Julie said she saw many people she knew, but also many new faces in the crowd of attendees. Kristan Cole, who tweeted earlier that she had been invited to sit with the family, was up front, along with Sarah’s mother Sally Heath and other family members. Chuck Heath was not present, however. According to Sally, he was moose hunting! (it is the season here in Alaska).

There were also a few protesters. “They hid behind masks and some blamed George Bush for 9/11. As a retired Air Force member, that loses me everytime,” said Julie. “There was a lady with a sign saying not to vote for Joe Miller but she was peaceful and we told her what makes this country great is she has the right to hold that sign.” She also described the reactions of those waiting in line to get in to these protesters. “The people around me either ignored them or laughed but it was that laughter followed by the sentiment that we knew these guys would get more press than the actual event. There was a reporter in the room that we heard say to another reporter, ‘Look at all these fanatics!’”

First Sarah introduced Glenn, they spoke together, and then Glenn spoke. The mood during the presentation was generally upbeat and acknowledging. “(There was)Cheering, heads nodding in agreement. Eagerness for information, quiet, you could hear a pin drop when he spoke of serious issues and applause to take the roof off when he spoke of smaller government and us taking care of our neighbors so the government doesn’t have to,” said Julie.

Near the beginning of the event, as can be seen in one of the clips below, there was a heckler. It has been widely reported that conservative radio talk show host, and former Republican candidate for Lt. Governor, Eddie Burke assisted in “removing” this disruptive attendee. I spoke with Eddie earlier this evening and he gave me his version of the event:

“I was sitting in the front row one seat from the aisle, in front of the stage and Sarah as she was speaking. There were a lot of people coming forward and snapping pictures and then going back to their seats, so at first I didn’t really pay much attention to this woman. She appeared to be in her 30′s. I’m not sure exactly where she came from, but she stood there and then yelled out “You’re a hippocrit!” directly to Sarah. Everyone started booing her. I was within arm’s reach of her and the booing was so loud I couldn’t hear what else she said, but she was still talking. I stood up and moved toward her, and to use one of Sarah’s lines from one of her speeches, I said ‘Quit making things up!’ At that point, Sarah pointed to me and said ‘Thanks Eddie. Eddie Burke, folks.’ Security came and they escorted her out. I got a kick out of Sarah’s comment about us all knowing each other here, and then Beck made the reply about it being like a high school gymnasium. Afterward, many people came up to me and shook my hand. Many of them asked me when I would be back on the radio and told me that they missed my show. Even more folks commented that they voted for me in the recent election. It was, I have to say, pretty humbling.”

Joe Miller was also in the crowd and up front with Sarah and family. Per Julie, “Many times the crowd yelled out ‘Joe Miller will get us back on the right path.’ Sarah mentioned he was there and there was huge applause for Joe. She promoted him, but the crowd also yelled his name when discussing solutions to America’s problems.”

I asked Julie what Glenn Beck’s main message was:

“Faith – find a religion and be grounded with the Creator. Hope – we can turn things around but each one of us has the duty and responsibility to make that happen and it is hard work. Don’t sit on the couch channel surfing. Get out there and serve. That brought is to Charity, tithe, join a church and tithe. Serve your neighbors. We are the largest contributors as a Country, we give more than all other countries combined. Give so the people are not owned by the government. And, did I mention he really doesn’t like Woodrow Wilson?”

Here are a few of Julie’s photos from the Glenn Beck event:

Glenn during his presentation

There was a meet and greet with Glenn Beck afterward. Julie and Eddie both described their experience. Per Julie,

“Each person got about 30 seconds with him and there were about 250 people. He was so exhausted. I was in the last group. Poor guy had flown all this distance, spoke all night brilliantly, then had to sign his name 250 times. He made sure he personally shook everyone’s hand. I was given two challenges, one to get a picture of him wearing a club shirt. Well, 30 seconds did not allow that so I decided instead to just give him the shirt for an autograph to be used for fundraising. So,the consolation prize was to have him in a picture with the shirt. The other challenge was to get a picture between my 2 favorite Glenns. That was a no brainer! I did tell him I was president (of the club) and that Sarah and her family were inspiring and that I appreciate him including her tonight.”


For Eddie, it was also a brief encounter. “I’m a member of AA and so is he (Beck)… He said. “It saved my life.” I responded, “Mine too.”

Julie said for her, it was the best day ever. “I was surrounded by American patriots. It gives me hope for a bright future. I met and got pictures with my 2 favorite rock stars, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. Our Founding Fathers live in the people I was privileged to participate with today. It was an honor to be part of the CPG event and an honor to shake the hand of a man that is willing to take a stand.”

Although I was not there, I am grateful for the friendships events like these have brought me, and they help me remember what being an American is all about. Faith, Family, Freedom. What more does one need?

Below are a couple of videos that have already been widely circulated on the internet. They are from Nina Stone, a facebook friend of mine who was gracious enough to allow me to use these, even before they went viral. Nina is a talented writer, and I know there are many of you out there who are interested in all things Alaskan. Here is a link to her latest Alaskan novel, On The Wings Of Love. Please check it out!

Palin and Beck make announcement about 2012

Posted by loricalabrese on September 13, 2010

After much speculation of an announcement of a 2012 presidential bid, former Gov. Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck appeared in front of thousands of fans in Anchorage on Saturday night, and announced that in 2012 they will both be… voting.

The duo, who drew thousands to the Restoring Honor Rally in Washington D.C., held a 9/11 commemoration rally at the Dena’ina Center, Palin’s first big speaking appearance in Alaska since she resigned after two and a half years as governor last summer.

Palin spoke briefly then introduced Beck, saying the conservative television and radio personality has inspired millions. Both Beck and Palin were perched on stools, a few feet from each other, and gave accounts of where they were on Sept. 11, 2001.

Palin, who was mayor of Wasilla, said she got a call at City Hall. “They said they were gathering people at the Lutheran church and the Baptist church,” she said. “So we shut down City Hall and we all ran up to the churches and we started praying for America.”

“They called me and they said, ‘We want you on the air,’ ” said Beck, who said he watched the collapse of the towers on television from Tampa, Fla. “I spent the next few days on my knees, as every American did. I was pleading for some kind of guidance. I remember in that moment realizing I knew nothing … and I remember just saying, ‘Who am I to have a voice at this point? And try to guide people through it?’ “

When they addressed the internet speculation that they would be making an announcement about a 2012 presidential run together, Beck asked Palin if she was going to run. She didn’t answer, instead responding by asking him if he was going to run. Beck said that he was not. Palin followed up, saying if she would make an announcement, she would make it on a KWHL drive-time talk radio show.

“If there is going to be some big national announcement I’m going to do it where it’s most worthy. I’m going to do something big, even bigger then Glenn Beck. It’s going to happen on the Bob and Mark show,” Palin said.

As they dismissed the speculation, they reminded everyone about 9/11.

“Here we are so many years later, and I fear we are forgetting,” Beck said.

Palin told of doing an interview last year with Beck under the Statue of Liberty in New York. She said she told Beck that her son, Track, who served in the military, got a tattoo of the statue on his forearm and she had just been texting with him about what they knew about the monument. She said Beck sent Track a book with a chapter on the meaning of the Statue of Liberty.

“This Statue of Liberty was gifted to us by foreign leaders, really as a warning to us, it was a warning to us to stay unique and to stay exceptional from other countries,” Palin said. “Certainly not to go down the path of other countries that adopted socialist policies.”

Governor Palin’s 9/11 Anchorage Speech

Debunking Another Lie: Gov. Palin is NOT Receiving Fee for 9/11 AK Event

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 9, 2010

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


Time and time again, people jump the gun in their determination to characterize Governor Palin as someone unworthy of America’s trust. And time and time again, they are proven wrong.

Today’s complaints centered around the teaming of Glenn Beck and the Governor on 9/11 in Alaska, which was announced here. Without knowing the facts, people have run off at the mouth, accusing them of profitting from this event. Jonathan Capehart is one such person. He writes:

“Restoring America” apparently wasn’t enough for Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. They now appear to be cashing in on the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

[...]

If building a Muslim community center dedicated to human understanding and tolerance two blocks from Ground Zero “stabs hearts,” then how should taking money from people at an event “to commemorate 9/11″ be described? Disrespectful. Distatesful. Shameful. Greedy. Narcissistic. Did I leave any adjectives out?

No, you just left the facts out. So let’s set the record straight on Governor Palin–again.

Via CNN (emphasis added):

A Beck spokesperson says Sarah Palin is not receiving an appearance fee, and Beck is donating his to charity.

“Glenn had always intended to donate the speaking fee from the event on Saturday, September 11th in Alaska to Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Governor Palin is not and was never going to receive a fee for introducing Glenn at this event,” a spokesperson for Glenn Beck told CNN.

Retraction, anybody?

Governor Palin Takes Good Care of Vietnam Vet

Governor Palin appeared briefly on the “Glenn Beck Show” today, via video. As my Conservatives4Palin comrade, Sinistar, pointed out earlier, she certainly doesn’t appear to be the person Mr. Gross depicted in his Vanity Fair hit piece.

Sinistar writes:

Yesterday, Kelsey relayed the story of how Viet Nam vet, Dave Roever was interviewed on the Glenn Beck show and how the Palins hearing that Mr. Roever was in need of a television studio offered the use of theirs. In addition to the generosity of opening their home, Governor Palin rejected the talk of Mr. Roever getting a makeup artist out there to prep him for taping and offered to do it herself. Quite a different image of her than what you might think if you got all your news from Vanity Fair, huh?

Take a look:
