Gov. Palin encourages everyone to #StandWithBibi

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 3, 2015

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook today:

_______________

Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address a joint meeting of our Congress. You’d think the Obama administration would welcome the insights of the leader of our closest ally in the Middle East. But President Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry have refused to attend. In fact, no member of the Obama administration is expected to attend.

This is a shocking insult to our ally, and it all boils down to the Obama administration’s refusal to understand the danger of a nuclear Iran.

All of the Obama administration’s many failures in the Middle East – from the descent of Libya into a terrorist playground to the rise of ISIS – pale in comparison to the farce unfolding in Iran. The Obama administration is negotiating with the Iranian regime as it builds a nuclear bomb right under our noses.

Just recently we found out about another “secret” undisclosed nuclear site, one Iran failed to disclose to our negotiators. At this point, the Obama administration’s eagerness to strike a deal with a regime that has armed militants who killed American troops and has sworn to destroy Israel is one of the most dangerous developments of my lifetime.

America has to wake up. We swore “never again” would we allow anyone to try to wipe out the Jewish people or commit mass genocide like we saw during World War II, and yet we’re allowing a regime that promises genocide to acquire nukes.

This is why I urge you all to express your support for Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is right now speaking as the leader of the free world in addressing this existential threat of a nuclear Iran. Please tweet and share this post and use the hashtag ‪#‎StandWithBibi‬

Let our friends in Israel know we stand with them!

Prime Minister Netanyahu was warmly received by the joint session of Congress.   There were many standing ovations, and the Congress continued to applaud as he exited the Chamber.  Netanyahu’s historic speech outlined in detail the dangers Iran currently poses and the even greater dangers a nuclear Iran would impose.

 ———————-

While imploring America to take a stand against the “bad deal” that is on the table with Iran,  Netanyahu declared,  ‘Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand.’   I think that is one of the most noteworthy quotes of his speech.  What he could have added is:  “and Israel’s God will stand with her.”

 ————————-
Here is the PBS video of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech.  It covers the entire joint session and is longer than other versions.  Netanyahu enters the Chamber at about the 22-minute mark, and it is well worth watching the welcome he is given as he makes his way to the podium.  His exit from the Chamber starts at about the 1 hour 8 minute mark.  Applause accompanied him all the way out of the Chamber.   It is obvious that Bibi Netanyahu is loved and respected by the majority of Americans.

Netanyahu: ‘Even If Israel Has to Stand Alone, Israel Will Stand’

AP Photo/Susan Walsh

by Ben Shapiro  3 Mar 2015

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of the State of Israel reset the agenda for the Western world in a speech before a joint session of Congress.

For weeks, the Obama administration has attempted to direct attention away from Netanyahu’s actual agenda – stopping the Iranian nuclear deal – and toward petty political maneuvering over permissions to speak and Democratic boycotts. All of that fell away in the wake of a clear, powerful, and emotional call by Netanyahu for the United States and Israel to stand united against the evil terror of Iran.

Netanyahu opened by expressing his humility for the invite, calling Congress the “most important legislative body in the world.” He then apologized for the speech itself becoming controversial. “That was never my intention,” he stated. “I want to thank you, Democrats and Republicans, for your common support for Israel, year after year, decade after decade. I know that on whichever side of the aisle you sit, you stand with Israel.”

That clever gambit – an attempt to kill the Obama administration and the boycotting Democrats with kindness – placed President Obama’s puerile spitefulness on Israel in stark contrast. That, of course, was the point. Every time Netanyahu spelled out the ways in which the Obama administration had helped Israel – instances that were, by and large, pro forma commitments every American president makes to Israel – he forced Obama into a corner. Turning the other political cheek turned out to be a powerful weapon.

Netanyahu got to the heart of his message: absolutely devastating Obama’s reported Iranian peace deal. In the shadow of the Jewish holiday of Purim, when a Jewish woman pled for the survival of her people from the genocidal intentions of a Persian anti-Semite, Netanyahu echoed Queen Esther’s language:

I feel profound obligation to speak to you about a threat to the survival of my country and the survival of my people, Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons. In nearly 4,000 years of history, many have tried repeatedly to destroy the Jewish people.

Netanyahu expressed that the threat was not only to Israel, but to the West, explaining, “Iran’s regime is not merely a Jewish problem any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem…Iran’s regime poses a grave threat not only to Israel but to the peace of the entire world.”

And, he said, to understand the nature of the deal being cut, the key lay in understanding “the nature of that regime.” Netanyahu described Israel’s enemies, funded by Iran, as “clutching Israel with three tentacles of terror.” He described Iran stretching from Syria to Iraq to Yemen. “At a time when many hope that Iran will join the community of nations,” he stated, “Iran is busy gobbling up the nations. We must all stand together to stop Iran’s march of conquest, subjugation, and terror.”

But that was his point: Obama is forwarding Iran’s march, despite Iran’s obvious intention to destroy the West. Many commentators have described Netanyahu as the true leader of the free world, given President Obama’s unwillingness to speak on behalf of a free world. He made that case today before Congress:

Iran’s regime is as radical as ever. Its cries of Death to America, the same nation it calls the Great Satan, are as loud as ever. This shouldn’t be surprising…[Iran’s] ideology is rooted in militant Islam. That’s why this regime will always be an enemy of America.

“Militant Islam.” The two words Obama refuses to say in that order.

Netanyahu continued by leveling the Obama argument that America must cut a deal with Iran in order to stop ISIS:

Iran and ISIS are competing for the crown of militant Islam…Both want to impose a militant Islamic empire, first on the region, then on the entire world. They just disagree who will be the ruler of this empire. In this deadly game of thrones, there is no place for America or Israel…When it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy.

And, Netanyahu pointed out, Obama’s negotiation would end with Iran gaining a nuclear weapon.

 That is exactly what could happen if the deal now being negotiated is accepted by Iran. That deal won’t prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. It would all but guarantee Iran gets those weapons. Lots of them.

Netanyahu laid out his two major critiques of the proposed deal. First, he explained, the deal would protect Iran’s “vast nuclear infrastructure,” placing them within a short period of developing nuclear weapons. Iran could cheat, Netanyahu pointed out – after all, “Inspectors document violations. They don’t stop them. Inspectors knew when North Korea broke to the bomb. But that didn’t stop anything.”

Second, and more importantly, he said, even if Iran complies with the deal, after the ten year period, they would be free to develop nuclear weapons without restriction. A decade, Netanyau pointed out, is a “blink of an eye in the life of our children.” And when that decade ends, “The foremost sponsor of global terrorism could be weeks away from having enough enriched uranium for an entire nuclear arsenal, and this with full international legitimacy.” Furthermore, no deal will include a stop on Iranian intercontinental ballistic missiles, leaving Europe and the United States vulnerable.

[…]

Iran, Netanyahu said, could be held to account. They could earn their way to legitimacy, rather than being given legitimacy without making any concessions. They could be forced to stop regional aggression, stop supporting terrorism, stop threatening to “annihilate my country, Israel, the one and only Jewish state.” And, he continued:

If the world powers aren’t willing to insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal is signed, at the very least, insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal expires. If Iran changes its behavior, the restrictions would be lifted. If Iran doesn’t change its behavior, the restrictions should not be lifted. If Iran wants to be treated like a normal country, let it act like a normal country.

What could the West do? Netanyahu suggested, “call their bluff”:

They need the deal a lot more than you do. And by maintaining the pressure on Iran, and those who do business with Iran, you have the power to make them need it even more. My friends, for over a year, we’ve been told that no deal is better than a bad deal. Well this is a bad deal. It’s a very bad deal. We’re better off without it.

Finally, Netanyahu invoked the Holocaust. He gave a tribute to Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, stating, “Standing up to Iran is not easy. Standing up to dark and murderous regimes never is.” Then he warned the world:

I wish I could promise you, Elie, that the lessons of history have been learned. I can only urge the leaders of the world not to repeat the mistakes of the past. Not to sacrificed the future for the present, not to ignore aggression in the hopes of gaining an illusory peace. But I can guarantee you this: the days when the Jewish people remain passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over!

Netanyahu vowed, “as PM of Israel, I can promise you one more thing. Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand. But I know that Israel does not stand alone, I know that America stands with Israel, I know that you stand with Israel.”

Netanyahu concluded by citing the Bible, in Hebrew. He quoted the parting words of Moses as the Jews were about to enter the land of Israel, from Deuteronomy 31:6:

Moses gave us a message that has steeled our resolve for thousands of years…Be strong and resolute, neither fear nor dread them. My friends, may Israel and America always stand together, strong and resolute, may we neither fear nor dread the challenges ahead, may we face the future with confidence, strength and hope. May God bless the state of Israel, and may God bless the United States of America.

The controversy over the politics of the speech is over. Now the world must answer Netanyahu’s question: will Israel have to stand alone?

Gov. Palin: Honored to meet so many in Denver, including ‘Truth Transcends Color’ and Dennis Prager

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 20, 2014

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page this afternoon:

Sarah Palin
—————————

Thank you, Colorado Christian University and Western Conservative Summit! You’re doing great work raising the next generation to effectively defend our republic. I loved being with you yesterday in Denver; it was an absolute honor to meet so many good people there including empowered patriots from American Conservatives of Color (www.ACofC.com).

“Truth Transcends Color” is their motto. Preach it! American Conservatives of Color, your core values statement is the answer to how that invisible wall of separation crashes down, making way for the united effort needed to rebuild this great nation! You are inspiring, bold, and RIGHT as you declare, “The days of saying ‘Someone needs to do something’ are over.” Together we are that someone!

Another highlight was shaking hands with the talented and wise Dennis Prager. I’d just watched his great work that day on the Elijah List where his impressive teaching video is posted. It’s short; it’s awesome; it’s appreciated! Watch what’s described as “everything you need to know about the Middle East conflict in one short video”: http://youtu.be/8EDW88CBo-8 Love this!

(Updated) Happy 65th Birthday to Israel!

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 15, 2013

Today Israel celebrates the 65th anniversary of its Independence Day.  We at SPIB want to wish our Mideast ally and friend a happy Independence Day!

The modern State of Israel represents the culmination of 4000 years of Jewish history, beginning with God’s covenant with Abraham.  It also represents the fulfillment of prophecy.

Here is a  video from the official You Tube page of the State of Israel.

Video retrieved from Israel.

The Times of Israel staff reports on Israel’s Independence Day celebrations and the Memorial Day for Israelis lost in combat and to terrorism that preceded it:

Israel on Monday evening officially transitioned from Memorial Day, one of sorrow and remembrance, to Independence Day celebrations. Civilian dignitaries and military brass attended the country’s closing memorial ceremony at Jerusalem’s Mt. Herzl, in which 12 torches were lit commemorating the 12 tribes of Israel.

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein opened the Independence Day ceremony saying that he never dreamed as a child that he would stand beside Theodor Herzl’s grave as a member of Knesset.

“I didn’t dream — not because I didn’t dare, and not because I was afraid. As a child I barely knew the State of Israel, I didn’t dream to be a part of it,” he said.

He noted that 26 years ago to the day he was released from a Soviet prison after serving time for seeking to immigrate to Israel. ”Today… my heart is filled, it is bursting its banks, full of prayer and thanksgiving,” he told the crowd.

The theme for 2013′s ceremony, chosen by the Ministerial Committee for Ceremonies and Icons, was the national legacy and the preservation of national cultural assets for generations to come. Fourteen honorees, selected for their cultural work, lit the 12 ceremonial torches.

Fireworks erupted over Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and cities across Israel moments after the final torch was lit, accompanied at Mt. Herzl by a musical and dance performance.

Earlier on Monday, a two-minute siren brought the country to a halt as Israel continued its Memorial Day events in remembrance of 25,578 war and terror victims.

Speaking at the official state ceremony for Israel’s fallen, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who lost his brother Yoni in the 1976 Entebbe raid, said he had been asked how to cope by children he met recently who had lost parents in wars or terror attacks.

“I answered honestly that I don’t know how to advise on how to manage with a loss like that. I told them that the death of my brother toughened me,” he told those gathered at the military cemetery at Mount Herzl. “We know that there is no real relief or comforting.”

Netanyahu also said Israel would continue to fight but also work toward peace.

“We will continue to work to make peace with our neighbors and to defend our land,” he said. “From the day of Israel’s birth great forces tried to destroy her. They never succeeded and will never succeed.”

Some 1.5 million Israelis were visiting cemeteries and memorial sites for services Sunday evening and Monday. All in all, 23,085 members of the country’s security forces died while in active service since Israel’s 1947-8 War of Independence, along with those who fought in Zionist pre-state militias going back to 1860.

Memorial Day began on Sunday night with a one-minute siren at 8 p.m. and an official ceremony at the Western Wall.

The day commemorates, in addition to servicemen and women, the 2,493 civilians who were killed in terror attacks.

Speaking at a ceremony for terror victims, Netanyahu said violence against civilians had been a constant challenge for the Zionist enterprise, surrounded by enemies who sought to kill or maim.

“We will not give in or surrender. We will pursue the terrorists relentlessly and we will strike them in any place. Terror is not from heaven, it is a mortal act,” he said. “Our willpower is greater than their willpower. We will never be like the murderers who do not hesitate to slaughter innocent people. We will not teach our children vengeance and hatred.”

Unity Coalition for Israel International (UCI) posted this powerful video by Yishai Fleisher yesterday.

UCI Celebrates Israel’s 65th Independence Day with Yishai Fleisher

Yishai Fleisher – UCI Exclusive Video,  April 15th, 2013


Video retrieved from Esther Levens.

Israel is 65!

Yishai Fleisher, Israel’s only english-language broadcast radio talk show host, and featured weekly on UCI’sVoices From Israeluc4i.org/voices. He visited Kansas City recently and had the opportunity to speak with Unity Coalition for Israel founder, Esther Levens, about the unique nature of tiny but fierce country in the Middle East. He pointed out that Israel is the only state that secures freedoms for both its Jewish and Arab citizens as well as for many other Arabs in its keep.

“Freedom? That’s our middle name! The preposterous attempt by the media and the United Nations and many other groups to paint Israel as the one pariah state, the apartheid state, is the biggest FARCE in the world today – where Israel is exactly the opposite – the one state (in the Middle East) that guarantees freedoms. And the states around us! THEY are the states that have instituted apartheid!” – Yishai Fleisher

Yishai is also the founder of Kumah, a nonprofit organization in Israel and the United States that works to educate the public about Israel. It’s mission is to dispel myths and stereotypes about Israel and the Middle East, enhance connection to Israel through media projects, and to strengthen the Jewish character of Israel through renovation of historic sites (The Tomb of Yishai and Ruth in Hebron and Jewish property on the Mount of Olives), publications, legislation for the Knesset, and Aliyah activism.

Palin: What is America’s Leadership Thinking?

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 23, 2013

 

In response to the above video where President Obama poorly attempts to compare the relationship of the USA and Canada to that of Israel and Palestine, Sarah Palin posted the following to her Facebook page:

Regarding this comparison, is he thinking it’s America or Canada that would be lobbing mortars across the other’s border to strike fear and kill innocents? And is he thinking that America is compared to Israel or Palestine? Or is it Canada that’s more like Israel or Palestine? Really, friends, if anyone else, ANYWHERE, had made such a claim, that person would be skewered and pilloried forever. Again, what is America’s leadership thinking?

Palin: Pray for Peace in the Holy Land

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 22, 2013

Israel_PalinTrip

Posted to Palin’s Facebook page earlier today:

As always, one must listen carefully to what leadership says, or fails to say, in analyzing current affairs. During his trip to Israel, President Obama said, “It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own.” Of course, as people of good will we would like everyone to have the right of self-determination and God-given liberty, but we also have to ask ourselves what has been done to establish the circumstances necessary for that. It’s been observed that a Palestinian child cannot grow up “in a state of her own” because of Palestinian leaders’ decisions.

There seems to be nothing on the horizon to change the mindset of those who would raise Palestinian children to hate and be intolerant of Jews, Christians, and other “infidels.” Bottom line: until that changes and until the Palestinian people become genuine partners in peace with Israel, little movement towards peace can be made. This is tragic for all, including those Palestinian children being indoctrinated. I hope our President understands this and could acknowledge it so the public could better understand the conflict. We can’t be naive to the causes of this centuries-old plight, and we mustn’t fail to ignore the one-sided effort to finally bring peace to Israel.

In the meantime, pray for peace in the Holy Land.

– Sarah Palin

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.

Palin Defends Dershowitz

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 14, 2012

In response to Sarah Palin’s recent Facebook note, “Dershowitz Is Right About Media Matters”, Israel National News reports as follows:

Professor Alan Dershowitz exchanged blows with Max Blumenthal of Media Matters in his recent address at a University of Pennsylvania event intended to counter the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement on campus, .

In response to Dershowitz’s visit to campus, Blumenthal wrote an article entitled, “Torture, Violence Advocate to Keynote anti-BDS Event,” with the sub-heading, “Alan Dershowitz, supporter of bulldozing Palestinian towns and torturing criminal suspects, is coming to campus.” Blumenthal attacked Dershowitz for being “an open advocate of torture who has urged Israel to destroy entire Palestinian villages, attack civilians and bulldoze their homes.”

Blumenthal’s Media Matters, the Democratic-aligned media watchdog organization, has been widely accused of engaging in anti-Semitic discourse, namely the repeated use of the term “Israel firster” by senior foreign policy fellow M.J. Rosenberg, to describe American Jews whose main concern in American politics is its effect on the State of Israel.  More

The Problem with David Frum: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on March 25, 2011

Palin’s trip to Israel was well received by the majority of Israel and a necessary trip for those considering a run for president. Many individuals are praising Palin for visiting one of the United States’ most trusted friend and ally.  Conservative Radio Host Mark Levin praised Palin for her visit to Israel. In his most recent note posted on Facebook, Levin commends Palin and takes aim at liberal Republican Commentator David Frum, describing him as a “disgraceful, petty, Palin-obsessed Washington-insider” and criticizing him for his recent disappointment in the fact that Palin booked her trip through a Christian tour group and did not take the Washington insider route and use the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) to book her trip.

Frum really does not get it, and Levin is right to call him out for his lame attempt to criticize the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate just because she did not go conventional route. Who cares which group Palin booked her tour through? It is clear that Frum is once again barking up the wrong tree in his awful attempt to pretend he does not care what Palin does or says, when it is clear he is obsessed with all things @SarahPalinUSA. It is not as if he paid for her trip to Israel. Then again, with his disapproval of her not picking the RJC, is he offering to pay for her next trip? After all, Palin said she cannot wait to return to the holy land. But I am not holding my breath that Frum would fork up much of anything other than ridiculous criticism.  Levin sheds light on Frum’s obsession with Palin picking a Christian tour group over the RJC:

But that’s not good enough for Frum. According to him, she didn’t use the RJC, of which he is a Board member, to handle the event.  As an American, Jew, and conservative, I consider Frum an embarrassment.  With rising anti-Semitism throughout the world and support for Israel weakening in the West, including among young people in the United States, he should be praising her visit and her commitment to Israel.  He should encourage more such trips and meetings by more opinion-makers and politicians, regardless of the group that handles these events.  Instead, Frum focuses on nonsense.  This is why Frum is neither taken seriously nor should be by a growing number of thinking conservatives.

Frum has never hidden his dislike of Palin, but it is his latest comments that are the most surprising considering the fact that Frum is Jewish.  Frum is yet another example of those obsessed individuals who say they do not care about what Palin says or does, yet whenever she does say or do something, they have to find something about it to criticize. This, my friends, is the number one symptom of Palin Derangement syndrome.  Mr. Frum, if you are serious about wanting to be taken seriously, then, I suggest you find something of high intellectual value to complain about. Until you do, I suggest you refrain from stirring up complete and utter nonsense and looking like a fool in the process! That…is…all.

Sarah Palin’s Strong Foreign Policy Goes “On The Record”

Posted by Gary P Jackson on March 25, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

After speaking in Naples, Florida Wednesday evening, Sarah Palin went On The Record with Greta Van Susteren. Though teased as a look at Sarah’s trip to Israel, and the possibility of a presidential run, much of the interview centered around Libya and the lack of coherent policy. Sarah Palin comes off as a competent and confident leader in this interview.

The emerging Palin Doctrine can be summed up in her philosophy that if we are going to be involved in these things we must be “in it to win it and if in doubt, get out” I take that to mean, either have a winning mindset from the start, or don’t bother. This go hard or go home attitude is how one wins the future, to borrow a slogan from our President. This is very Reaganesque. His strategy with the Soviet Union could be boiled down to four words: “We win, they lose“.

The world expects a strong United States. It expects the United States to have a strong Commander-in-Chief. History shows when the United States becomes disengaged, or weak on the world stage, very bad things happen.

Both World Wars, the rise of radical Islam, and even the build up to 9/11 can be traced to unengaged, “progressive” Presidents. [Democrats] who were more interested in re engineering the United States, building a socialist utopia, rather than keeping their eye on the ball.

We are seeing all of this play out once again with Obama’s helter-skelter, all over the map, lunacy. The Obama regime’s foreign policy has all the makings for a good screwball comedy. Sadly though, this is real life, and people will die.

As you watch Greta’s interview with Sarah, you see a Commander-in-Chief. An optimistic leader who looks at how things are, sees how things can be. I’m not just talking Foreign policy either. When I hear Sarah Palin speak, I am reminded of the same feelings I got hearing Ronald Reagan speak when he was President. Sarah has that steady, competent leadership ability to get the nation, and the world, back on track.
