Greta: “Gov. Palin’s father is fascinating!”

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 8, 2012

From Gretawire:

In the Governor Sarah Palin Facebook posting copied below Governor Palin gives me a shout out. But, besides just a shout out, she also urges her followers to go to GretaWire and watch our entire interview with her father and brother about their new book. I likewise urge you to scroll back and watch the entire interview because there is more to the interview than what we aired on ON THE RECORD at 10pm on Friday.

When we pre tape an interview as we did with her Father and Brother, I frequently take advantage of being with the guest (or guests) and interview longer than our planned airing time so that I can give you something extra here on GretaWire.

By the way, Gov Palin’s father is fascinating! You would not believe his collection of artifacts at his house in Alaska. On one of my many trips to Alaska, Governor Palin’s Father and Mother gave me a tour of their home. Their house is a Museum of Natural History – a collection of items he has gathered over his years of exploring that giant state of Alaska. For years he was a teacher and in talking to him and seeing his collection of artifacts I know he was a great one. I learned a lot from him just by getting a tour of his home from him.

Sarah Palin: Akin needs to “know when to fold ’em”

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 22, 2012

Video retrieved from 

Governor Palin talked to Greta van Susteren about the Akin “legitimate rape” controversy On The Record last night.   She suggested a third party run for Sarah Steelman if Akin does not withdraw from the race.   From the transcript posted at Greta’s site:

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Well, the 5:00 PM deadline has now passed. The drumbeat, though, is loud. It’s getting louder. But it sure isn’t getting to Congressman Todd Akin in Missouri. He blew off the 5:00 PM Central deadline to drop out of the Senate race. Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan jumping into the fray, urging him to quit.

Congressman Akin is trying to unseat Democratic senator Claire McCaskill. Now, it all started during an interview, when the conversation turned to abortion. Congressman Akin said, If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.

Well, then all hell broke loose, and the highest-ranking party members have been urging him to quit the race. So now that Congressman Todd Akin missed a deadline and won’t bow out, should the GOP kiss its chance of winning the Missouri Senate seat goodbye?

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin backed Akin’s Republican primary opponent, Sarah Steelman. Governor Palin joins us. Good evening, Governor. And I think it’s only fair to take a few seconds and to gloat a little bit. You chose the candidate that the Republican Party didn’t — you know, didn’t vote in in Missouri, and now all the leaders in the country, Republican leaders, are trying to get Akin to go. So I think they probably love your choice.

SARAH PALIN, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR/FORMER ALASKA GOVERNOR: Well, I won’t gloat about it, but I was right. And Sarah Steelman’s supporters and campaign staff, we were all right in knowing that Sarah Steelman is the right person for the job to represent Missouri and to allow common-sense conservatives to take back the Senate to halt what it is that Barack Obama has done to this country.

Sarah Steelman was the right person. I supported her then, and I’m going to continue to support her.

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, it looks like Senator Claire McCaskill ought to be sending a fruit basket tonight to Congressman Akin because he certainly has — I mean, he has certainly jeopardized the chances for Republicans to take that seat. And Senator Claire McCaskill really was on the ropes. But now, boy, things have turned around, haven’t they?

PALIN: Well, see, that’s the point, Greta. Claire McCaskill and the Democrats thought that they were so clever in fighting so hard to get Akin on the ballot as the winner in the GOP primary. And you know, many of us who recognized that cleverness, that craftiness from the left, because we’re kind of getting used to the games that they play, wanted to do something about it.

And Sarah Steelman and her motto and her campaign being “The status quo has got to go” was absolutely right on in saying, you know, we need somebody who has a strong record of reform, of fighting crony capitalism, of fighting the good old boy network, of fighting ignorance in the Senate. And Sarah Steelman was going to be that person.

Now we do have opportunity, even though Todd Akin has said that he’s not going to drop out. And bless his heart, I don’t want to pile on Todd Akin because, in some respects, I understand what he’s trying to say here in standing on principle, that he doesn’t want to be perceived as a quitter. But you got to know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em.

Believe me, I’ve walked it before. I know when you have to hold that mantle and then hand it to someone else in order to progress a positive agenda. That’s what I had to do in Alaska.

In order to take back the Senate and promote the ideas and policies of respecting and protecting the sanctity of human life and respecting the idea and policies that would perpetuate a strong economy based on empowering hard-working individuals, instead of growing dysfunctional, indebted government, we’ve got to take back the Senate, and Missouri is a must-win state.

The way we do that is to have someone like Sarah Steelman be able to run, even if it’s as a third party candidate, to be able to run and help us take this back.


PALIN: You know, close that chapter, though, of what he said and what he meant and how he will try to explain what he meant. Close that, and now just deal with the pragmatism in front of us, these decision that have to be made on when the deck is stacked against you, when your funding has been pulled, when all the bigwigs, not just in the establishment but those hard- core supporters, have pulled their support from you as the GOP primary winner, in Todd Akin. When that support is gone, that would be needed in order to beat Claire McCaskill, help take back the Senate, when it’s gone. That’s when you have to use discernment and know when to fold them.

VAN SUSTEREN: So I’m unclear. Are you suggesting he get out or are you suggesting the Republican party still back him?

PALIN: No. I’m suggesting that he get out. He should have reached that deadline today, I believe, personally, and gotten out of the race, but because he did not do that, Greta, then we have to figure out, OK, well, what is next? Again, without trying to pile on Todd Akin and what he’s going through right now, maybe it is a third-party run of Sarah Steelman (ph) that I can get behind, and, granted the status quo has got to go would be an odd name for a third party, but we’ll coin it, adopt it, run with it if that’s what it takes in order to get a commonsense constitutional, happens to be pro-life woman in Missouri to clean up this mess that’s been created and at the same time take back the Senate, which means we get to take back the country and put government back on the side of the people.

VAN SUSTEREN: You know, it’s interesting, I don’t think they’re piling on him. You know, it’s not like it’s a gaffe, like he said the wrong word or something. I mean, he says it like he understands from doctors. Did he make it up? No doctor is coming out and saying this. This is more than a gaffe.

And what he’s done to the Republican party is not only is he going to risk the chance of the Republican party gaining the Senate by winning Missouri, but he’s also done one of the worst things you can do in politics, is by handing your opponent ammunition and as the Democrats have been talking about a war on women. Well, now he’s handed them so much ammunition on this by his bizarre statements.

PALIN: That’s what I mean, by the cards stacked against you. Good, bad, or ugly, that’s what he’s facing. This is not going in his favor. You have to step aside from self, from your self-desire to get in there and deserve and do what you believe is right, and you have to, in a sense, take one for the team. And you have to step aside, hand the mantle to someone else.


PALIN: He has until September 25th to do it. If he doesn’t do it, then it will be third party then. We’ll do whatever we can to not quash this opportunity that we have to take Missouri for the good of the country and for the good of every citizen of Missouri, to take it back, put government back on the side of the people. The only way we do that is to have a conservative win in Missouri, to defeat Claire McCaskill, who is highly unpopular. Look at the polls. She’s still behind Todd Akin today, barely, but even despite all this chaos that’s going on, that’s indication of how unpopular she is.

It’s doable. It’s winnable, Missouri is. And that leads to winning the Senate. That leads to reversing a lot of the things that Obama and Biden have done to put our children and grandchildren in the chains of dependency, to shackle our kids and grandkids in the debt that they have continued to perpetuate, Greta.

VAN SUSTEREN: Have you made a call to Sarah Steelman, or do you spend to, or do you have any advice for her tonight?

PALIN: No, because here’s the deal. I also know my mission that I’m on is to help and not to hurt. Maybe Todd Akin needs to learn a little lesson from me. You need to know when to step back and wait to be invited to be important and not invite yourself to the party. What he’s doing right now, Greta, bless his heart, he’s inviting himself back into this general election that’s coming up, and he’s going to get defeated. And that’s unfortunate. That is why we have to think pragmatically about this, and we have to think, well, what’s another option? Is a third-party another option? If it is, let’s go. The status quo has got to go. Let’s do what we can to get there.

Palin Kneecaps the Democratic Party

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 17, 2012

Never one to mince words, Governor Sarah Palin spoke with Greta Van Susteren about Vice President Joe Biden’s “chains” remark  to which she replies “The strategists there in the Obama campaign have got to look at a diplomatic way of replacing Joe Biden on the ticket with Hillary.”


Replacing Biden on the ticket is not a new idea as is evidenced here, here, and here; however, if you take a look at Palin’s Facebook wall even supporters are critical of her comment and they are suggesting that Palin is giving the Democratic party good advice.  If you’ve lost track of Biden’s gaffes, here’s a good summary.

In discussing this with a friend, she referred to the comment as “Palin playing 3-D chess”. I agree and I truly believe that the “replace Biden” comment was a Palin strategy.  In case you had not noticed, she’s very politically savvy.  After all, would President Obama really want to accused of taking political advice from Sarah Palin?

Gov. Palin: Voters Need to Do Their Homework to Get Around the Filter of the Mainstream Media

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 15, 2012

Video retrieved from .

Governor Palin talked to Greta Susteren On the Record last night about the 2012 campaign as well as her thoughts about the RNC.   Here is an excerpt from the transcript of that interview.

VAN SUSTEREN: Former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin joins us. And there were some groans when Vice President Biden said “back in chains.” Your thoughts, Governor Palin.

SARAH PALIN, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR/FORMER ALASKA GOVERNOR: There weren’t enough groans and boos when he said such a disgusting comment, really, especially to a demographic there that is — includes about 48 percent of the community being black Americans.

Greta, if that’s not the nail in the coffin, really, the strategists there in the Obama campaign have got to look at a diplomatic way of replacing Joe Biden on the ticket with Hillary. And I don’t want to throw out that suggestion and have them actually accept the suggestion because then an Obama-Hillary Clinton ticket would have a darn good chance of winning.

But really, Joe Biden really drags down that ticket.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, well, what was sort of interesting to me, hailing from this state of Wisconsin, is I keep seeing the “Forward” behind Vice President Biden and that is their campaign slogan, which coincidentally is the motto of the state of Wisconsin going back, if I can remember right from grade school, back into the 1800s.

But anyway, let me go next to — Governor Romney today came out with a speech, and probably — according to Carl Cameron, my colleague, this is a much more aggressive speech from Governor Romney than we’ve been seeing, saying things like about President Obama that he’s intellectually exhausted, out of ideas, out of energy, and so his campaign has resorted to diversions and distractions, to demagoguing and defaming others. This is an old game of politics. What’s different this year is that the president is taking things to a new low.

You’ve had a chance to look at the governor’s speech. What do you think?

PALIN: I read the transcript, and yes, Greta, I think that Governor Romney now, having spent years, literally, running for president, has really grasped the notion now that this is not a dress rehearsal. This is it. So he has to use these powerful and truthful and accurate words to describe what President Obama is running on and what he is doing to America.

Romney’s coming out swinging. This is what we need. I think that Paul Ryan has helped energize Governor Romney. And this is all good for America because we will hear more accurately the state of the union and the state of this campaign.

VAN SUSTEREN: You know, it’s — both sides think the other side is dirtier than himself or herself and this campaign. But it’s interesting that no sooner did the — Governor Romney give that speech than Ben LaBolt, who is the press secretary for the President Obama campaign — he came out and said, Governor Romney’s comments tonight seem unhinged and particularly strange coming at a time when he’s pouring tens of millions of dollars into negative ads that are demonstrably false.

It’s sort of the “unhinged” and the “particularly strange.” I mean, the insults are flying back and forth.

PALIN: Yes, and Joe Biden isn’t unhinged today in the words that the said? No, again, Governor Romney is on the right track there and kind of taking some gloves off and saying, Enough is enough of the failed policies of Obama as reflected even by the failed messaging through their campaign. It is a negative, dirty campaign coming from the Obama administration.

There are only two people in this country who have ever had to run against Barack Obama and his machine, and that’s John McCain and myself when we ran in ’08. I know what this is about. I know how dirty they can get. They continue to be dirty.

And Governor Romney has every right in the world — in fact, he has a responsibility to take those gloves off, let Americans know what this campaign is all about, his side and Obama’s side, and let the voters decide if we want to empower individuals and allow America to grow and into a more prosperous and secure and voluntarily generous nation, or if we want to grow government under Obama — such a clear, clear choice that we have.

VAN SUSTEREN: But it’s — it’s — you know, we’re still at the point, though, where we’re not really getting any message out of either one. We have the President Obama’s campaign insulting the governor, saying that he seems unhinged. We’ve got Governor Romney referring to President Obama as having — as a moral failure. And depending on which side you’re on — I mean, we are locked in an incredible battle of who — you know, it’s almost like a contest who can be dirtier, who can be nastier in some instances.

PALIN: And yet we’re not, Greta — and yet — and yet we’re not absent from an accurate message about how to get the economy back on the right track coming from the Romney campaign. But because the media so willingly protects Barack Obama and his failed policies, it’s tough through the filter of the mainstream media to hear that message.

That’s why voters need to do their own homework. They can’t listen to that 90 percent of the liberal media and expect to hear what the truth is coming out from the White House’s messaging and the Obama campaign’s messaging about the true state of the union.

But we’re not without the solutions and the proposals. Paul Ryan has actually proposed a budget, a pathway to prosperity that anybody can read if voters do their own homework and not rely on their liberal media.

Now, thus far, Barack Obama, because of the lapdogs in the media protecting him and being such experts at distracting the American voter with irrelevant issues that continue to bombard voters — because of what the media has done to protect Barack Obama thus far, Obama has had to pay no price for his failed policies.

I think that’s going to change in these next 80-some days as more and more Americans are deciding, yes, we won’t rely on media, we’re going to do our own homework and we’re going to hear these solutions from Ryan’s budget proposals and from Romney’s proposals.

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, I do think that the — that the — if I were to look at sort of who’s been dirtier, I mean, I do find that Senator Harry Reid — or his sort of anonymous source on the returns, saying he didn’t prepare and accusing Governor Romney of killing some woman — I do find that, you know, just beyond the pale in terms of — you know, they do win the contest, at least…

PALIN: Name one — name one prominent Republican who even comes close to what like the Alan Graysons, the Harry Reids, the Joe Bidens come up with and spew to the American public. I can’t think of one prominent Republican who talks the way that they talk and certainly wouldn’t get away with the way that they talk.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, well, it’s going to be — it’s certainly going to be a lot worse. And let me tell you, we have a campaign flash because this is primary day today, much of the country, and late primary election results coming in from across America.

Two big races getting downright nasty. First in Florida, Representative Connie Mack IV easily winning the Republican Senate primary. He will now face Democratic senator Bill Nelson in November.

And tonight, just seconds after that race was called, the Democratic senatorial campaign committee attacking Representative Mack, saying, “Connie Mack IV cashed in on his family’s good name to win a House seat and now he’s cashed in for a nomination for a Senate seat. Over the next several weeks, voters will finally have the opportunity to meet the real Connie Mack IV, including a shady past complete with road rage incidents, drunken bar fights and an arrest record.”

And now to Connecticut, former wrestling executive Linda McMahon winning that Senate GOP primary. She will face Democratic representative Chris Murphy in November, the DSCC immediately releasing this statement about McMahon — this was within seconds of that race being called. “Linda McMahon is a greedy CEO who made millions marketing sex and violence to little kids all at the expense of the health and safety of her own employees.”

Let’s go back to Alaska — former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. Where — in the old days, they used to at least congratulate you, let you at least take a bow for a second before they hit you. This was seconds, and one’s called greedy and one says road rage and arrests and — what do you think about all this?

PALIN: Well, the Democrats have in their back pocket all these negative distractions, these distracting messages to spew and try to ram down the voters’ throats here, and they’ll do that throughout all these primaries as we head into the general.

And they do that because they do want to distract away from the failed policies that the Democrats embrace, where they do want to grow government because they truly believe that government is the solution, is the answer, when you know, most common sense fiscal conservatives, people who work very hard and don’t want to be dependent on government, understand that government is the problem.

Greta: Palin has had the greatest influence on GOP primary results

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 7, 2012


Greta van Susteren had  this to say on her blog yesterday:

In the past few months, Governor Sarah Palin has had enormous success getting long shot candidates the nominations in their party.  No one has come close to influencing primaries as much as she has.  In major races, her endorsements have been credited with making the difference between who wins and who does not.  Here are some samples: Ted Cruz (Texas), Deb Fisher (Nebraska), Richard Mourdock (Indiana) and she was credited with having an influence on Senator Orrin Hatch winning a hotly contested primary in Utah.   She has just thrown her weight behind Sarah Steelman in Missouri…and people are now watching that race.

Ask yourself, does any single person in the Republican Party wield such influence with the Republican voters?  Perhaps Governor Romney and the RNC better give her a prominent speaking role at the convention?
