Palin: Small Town America is Our Heart

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 30, 2013

Palin.in.wasilla.after.voting.11408

Leave it to the lamestream media to diminish the importance of a high school graduation in a small town.  Leave it to the lamestream media to diminish the efforts of the graduating class and their successful campaign to have Governor Sarah Palin speak at their high school graduation.  In the end it’s Republic High School 1, lamestream media 0.

From Palin’s Facebook page:

Small town America is the soul of our country, despite the opinion of the Seattle Weekly’s Ellis Conklin and the lamestream media. Todd and I are on our way to congratulate the graduating class in Republic, Washington, this Saturday and I’m honored and touched by their ingenuity, tenacity, and invitation to speak to these young Americans about to begin their futures.

Small town America is our heart; it may not be the Ivy Leagues or what Ellis and the media deem acceptable, but these students and this town represent what is good and right about America and the small towns where most of us grew our own roots and values.

Too often the media forgets its own humble roots and plays the elitist card. Not so this weekend. We are going to congratulate the Tigers of 2013 and have something special for each and every one. They will grow to defend our country, manage our economy, build our families, and work to achieve each of their own personal dreams.

Sorry, Seattle Weekly, you, as usual, miss the point.

– Sarah Palin

A tragedy, yes, but a political opportunity? Are you kidding me?

Posted by Roderic Deane on July 24, 2012

Last week’s horrific events in Aurora, Colorado should give us all pause. We need to reaffirm our love of family and cherish those we hold dear. Our lives can change in an instant, through no fault of our own. It could be due to a careless drunk driver, a sinister combatant in Afghanistan, or a willful, homicidal maniac in our very own neighborhood!

Life is full of joy, as God intended, and yet so full of sorrow. The sorrow is a consequence to the gift of joy, but God also made us a promise that we would be forever reunited with our loved ones in Paradise.

As we wrestle with the consequence of mortality, we must be mindful of God’s eternity. Through the horrible acts of deranged man, we should be reminded of the futility in attempting to create a perfect world. The perfect world is beyond our human capabilities and only manifested in the eternal joy of Paradise.

I am troubled by the attempt to paint our human lives as the end-all, in an attempt to capture political gain. I truly believe human life is not the end-all and resist the temptation of a man made utopia, as if God and His promises do not exist. We are tempted and encouraged to think otherwise by countless politicians, movie producers and journalists. We must resist this temptation and recognize that our time on this earth is short, by God’s design.

Who now can imagine the horrors of The Civil War, when countless young men were cut down in battle, denying their families the longevity of their family line? As a vibrant society, we benefit from everyone’s sacrifice and move forward in an attempt to do better and prosper. We should not forget past sacrifices and, instead, honor them! Those countless sacrifices made this country the envy of the world, but we now seem to have forgotten them and are suffering the consequences of aimless direction.

Thus are the lessons to be learned by last week’s tragedy in Colorado. From our current perspective, we will probably never make sense of it. Over time, however, we WILL persevere and God’s loving hand will guide us to bigger and better things, if we just believe.

Evil will always exist in our human world and it has a name. Its name is Satan, the devil. The devil will never go away as long as we toil as human beings and refuse to recognize its existence.

Do you remember the shameless and evil attempts to tie Sarah Palin to the shooting of Gabby Giffords? In addition to trying to blame the Tea Party, the lamestream media and the left-wing blogosphere pushed their story of Governor Palin’s complicity for days!

We just have to believe that truth and justice will ultimately prevail and continue to live our lives as responsible citizens, despite when the lamestream media attempts to use a tragedy for political gain.

Benyamin Korn Highlights the Palin “Grizzly” Factor

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 20, 2012

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

Benyamin Korn, publisher of Jews For Sarah, penned an article for The New York Sun today in which he highlights the power Governor Palin continues to wield although she is not on any GOP ballot. He writes:

Who is the leader of the “Not-Romney” movement within today’s GOP?

Is it Newt Gingrich, whose surge in the South Carolina opinion polls puts him within striking distance of front-runner Mitt in tomorrow’s vote?

Is it Ron Paul, whose dedicated core of “hard-money” but isolationist supporters gives him 15 to 20% in every Republican contest?

Or is it Rick Santorum, recently endorsed by a raft of Christian evangelical leaders?

For my dollar, the leader is Sarah Palin, whose endorsements continue to carry more weight among conservatives than any other national figure and who is well-positioned to play a king-making role in the 2012 elections similar to her “Mama Grizzly” performance guiding the Republican surge in 2010.

How did this happen? She’s not running. She’s in Alaska. Since declaring herself a non-candidate at the beginning of October, Mrs. Palin has kept a pretty low profile.

[…]

Recent weeks have seen a resurgence of the Grizzly factor.

Mr. Korn’s piece dissects Governor Palin’s influence, even from distant Wasilla, Alaska. He explains how one word spoken by the Governor has translated into undeniable results.

He ends his article with this:

So what is next for the politician The New York Sun calls “the alert Alaskan”? For now, to keep the GOP pot boiling.

She is able to do so because millions think she is brilliant, incorruptible, and knows how to lead. Many of them hope she will still get into this race, but she has insisted that in this political season she will make her contribution from the side-lines with the goal of a Republican president in 2013.

Discussing Governor Palin; Patrick’s World USA Interview

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 16, 2011

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

Last night, I was interviewed about Governor Palin on Patrick’s World USA Blog Talk Radio Show. Patrick is a great host and made sure he covered several important topics in just 30 minutes of airtime. We discussed the frenzy over Governor Palin’s emails which are serving only to show what a dedicated governor she was; Frank Bailey’s anti-Palin book, a complete flop, The Undefeated, the soon-coming film about Governor Palin’s stellar career in public service; the mainstream media’s obsession with President Obama and commitment to his re-election; and the 2012 race for the presidency which is starting to take off.

I come in at the 11:23 mark. Enjoy:

It’s Impossible to Chase Someone Who Isn’t Running

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 31, 2011

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

“It’s physically impossible to chase someone who isn’t running.” This is my standard response to a student who comes barreling down the school hallway because so-and-so is chasing him. Today, I issued that same comment to a wildly running seventh grader, and I got the same look I always get, the lightbulb slowly coming on.

I had already intended to address the media’s obsession with Governor Palin’s “One Nation” bus tour, but no sooner had those words to the student come out of my mouth when a lightbulb came on for me.

It’s impossible to chase someone who isn’t running. I’ve uttered those words in reprimand to students for years. Have I been wrong all along? Well, if I believe the political talking heads, indeed I have. If I listen to the Bill O’Reillys, the Dick Morrises, the Charles Krauthammers of the world, Governor Palin isn’t running for President, for she doesn’t have what it takes. I reject that perspective, of course, as common sense Americans do. However, let’s just say, for the sake of argument, that they are correct and she’s not going to run. Why, then, is she being chased? Nay, why is the media literally stalking her as she and her family are enjoying the historical sites of this great country? They’re checking into hotels she’s staying at, they’re engaging in what are essentially high speed chases down the highways, and they’re lurking overhead in helicopters.

Governor Palin has repeatedly said this tour is not a campaign tour. She’s proving wrong those who claim that she’s simply looking for attention; she hasn’t even released her travel schedule. She’s not setting up a microphone and making prepared speeches to a plethora of gatherers. She’s simply taking in the richness of America’s history, and the media can’t get enough. So here’s a private citizen who’s on a family vacation, one might say, and media members are underfoot–and overhead. Yet their narrative is that she’s totally irrelevant, unable to lead this country, and has no intentions to run. Why don’t they go chase the other people then, the ones who are running? Why not stick microphones in their faces, ask them if they’re playing with their heads, and tweet incessantly about their next move?

If I believe some of these so-called experts and these masters of the lamestream media who, according to their own imaginations, know everything about everything, Governor Palin is simply a passing fad, unfit for leadership, and certainly not running for President. It seems after fifteen years of teaching, it might be time for me to find something new to respond when one student is running down the hallway, saying, “He’s chasing me!” My traditional “It’s physically impossible to chase someone who isn’t running” has been flat-out debunked by those who, supposedly, know better than the rest of us.

Say what, Meghan?

Posted by Morgan on April 18, 2011

Somebody named Meghan Daum had a column out yesterday on Sarah in the Los Angeles Times which featured statements I have found to be the most baffling ever written by anybody (and I mean anybody) working in the American media today.  She claimed thanks to the “Palin machine” (Ms. Daum’s idea of a flattering nickname), it’s impossible to criticize Sarah “without being discredited as a biased and therefore unqualified source”.  Naturally, there’s more:

And that’s not the only reason why we can’t bring ourselves to take the gloves off with Palin. It’s impossible not to feel like we’re punching shamefully below our weight, which everyone knows is against the rules. Palin lacks the intellectual, analytical and rhetorical skills to have a competent discussion about policy or much else. She is handicapped not only by a lack of education, experience and curiosity about the world (wearing a Star of David in Israel doesn’t count), but by a speaking style that often collapses under the weight of disjointed, undiagrammable sentences. She is, in terms of the political arena, easily outclassed.

Does Meghan Daum live in some kind of bizarro world?  Apparently, it has never occurred to her that the reason why some members of the media have been discredited as biased and unqualified is because they relied on misleads, distortions, falsehoods, lies and blatantly biased sources when it came to their coverage of Sarah and her record in the first place. But the thing which baffles me most is her claim that she (and her “friends and readers”) would like “to rip the lady to shreds and move on”, but cannot because Sarah “is too well-shielded by her own incompetence”.  Has it ever occurred to her that those of like mind as her friends and readers have already attempted to rip the lady to shreds and failed because their criticism has been unfounded and makes them look like fools repeatedly? As far as Meghan Daum is concerned, I hate to think she represents what Los Angeles is today.

Proof Palin Is Living Rent Free In Obama’s Head

Posted by traceyporreca on March 29, 2011


Robert Gibbs, former white house press secretary, left that position recently to the cheers of conservatives and clear-thinking individuals who were tired of his side-stepping or simple refusal to answer the most basic of questions. Who gave him another thought? Who cares where he goes, right? Well, now you should care, because it looks like facebook is seriously considering hiring Mr. Gibbs for a high level position within its organization.

For all the left’s humanitarian, anti-capitalist talk, this latest step by someone within the tight inner-Obama circle sure smacks capitalistic to me. Articles citing facebook’s upcoming positioning as a public company, and Gibbs desire to be in a position to cash in on this with a high figure salary and ability to direct certain messaging, sure sounds capitalistic. Don’t fool yourself into thinking Mr. Gibbs is doing this for the common good. So why then – why would he leave a position where he had the ear of the entire nation (via our lamestream media) and free reign to run amuck over free speech? I don’t believe he’s left the white house at all. I believe the white house and president Obama still have full control over Mr. Gibbs.

Sarah Palin is undoubtedly in Obama’s head, rent free, 24/7. Our lefty media reports on her every step through the slanted prism of the socialist white house agenda. Via facebook, Sarah Palin has been able to direct her message to her audience, an audience hungry and thirsty for the truth and a clear vision of the future through the eyes of someone who understands our founding principles and our exceptionalism. I can just see it now – a white house staffer standing outside the office of the president, dreading the fact that he has been chosen (via a game of papers/scissors/rock) to be the one to approach our leader and tell him, “She’s posted to facebook, again.” Obama’s shoulders fall as he looks over her latest assault to his national transformational agenda. And then, it hits him.

“We have to figure out a way to control her message. We need to figure out a way to control – facebook.” I find it more than ironic that the very medium that Sarah Palin has used to relay her message is the one that a senior white house official, after leaving the white house, is now being considered for as a senior executive.

Facebook is currently a private company that is looking to go public. I cannot see what facebook and Mark Zuckerberg find appealing in hiring Gibbs. I certainly would not consider him a social guru. In fact, I find him to be one of the least appealing people I’d want to be stuck in a social situation with. What corporate board would seriously want him guiding their message? Somehow I just don’t see him as a part of what could potentially be one of the largest and most lucrative corporate boards in America. His only real claim to fame was being white house press secretary, and he wasn’t all that good at that. He was only good at side-stepping and dodging.

Still thinking this scenario is a stretch? Gibbs is also reportedly planning on helping with Obama’s re-election campaign (see here). Do you seriously think he won’t use a position at facebook to assist his buddy in his bid for re-election? There is a bigger agenda here, and I believe the white house is looking to take control of facebook and Sarah Palin’s message, via positioning Gibbs as a senior executive. Do you really want Gibbs in control of your social experience? Yes, Sarah Palin is living rent free in Obama’s head and if we’re not careful, Obama could be in control of much more.

Ten Must-Have Apps for Sarah Palin Followers

Posted by ehvogel on March 6, 2011

I keep reading about this must-have app and that must-have app, so I decided to create a list for some creative entrepreneur that understands apps (my preference being Android). Here are my suggestions for 10 must-have apps for Sarah Palin followers:

1. Real time notices of Sarah Palin Facebook or Twitter postings. Sarah Palin followers just have to be the first to know about a new post.

2. Upcoming Sarah Palin media appearances. Whether it be Fox News or a simple radio appearance, real-time updates of coming appearances would be most helpful.

3. A register of new online polls regarding Sarah Palin. We like to vote for positive things regarding Sarah and need to know where to go to support her in any online poll.

4. Red Alerts for countering media bias regarding Sarah Palin and her family. We like to voice our opinions regarding Sarah to help counter any negative “hit piece” that is published about Sarah or her family. Links to comment pages would be a welcome thing.

5. Video archives of Sarah Palin appearances. We would like a depository of Sarah Palin videos that we could link to on our smart-phones to help counter real-time Sarah critics that we come across in our daily lives.

6. Sarah Palin’s favorite wild-game recipes. After all, you can only make Moose stew once in a while.

7. Sarah Palin quotes. She has coined or re-invented such fabulous terms as “death panels”, “going rogue”, “mama grizzlies”, “blood libel”, “a servant’s heart”, “lamestream media”, “refudiate” and others. We want to use these terms and would like instant access to new and existing ones, for whatever purpose. It would also be helpful to have links to the source where where she first used them.

8. Shoes. Okay, I throw this one out for all those wonderful ladies that notice another woman’s shoes. I suspect they might like to know what latest fashion Sarah is wearing on her feet, whether they be pumps or sloggers.

9. Sarah Palin media smack-downs. Okay, I know this could be included in #4 above, but it deserves its own app because we like Sarah’s feistiness and want to be the first to applaud it.

10. Smiles. Sarah Palin has one of the most magnificent smiles that has ever existed in a politician. We want to see every single one that comes across whatever media source runs it for a collective glimpse into her heart.

I could probably go on, but you get the idea. App-makers?

If Sarah Palin is Snooki, Does this Make President Obama the Situation? A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on January 19, 2011

As I was getting ready for work this morning, I happened to flip the channel to one of the most fair and balanced news networks in all of television news, good ol’ MSNBC (wink, wink). I had not been listening for a total of two minutes before Sarah Palin’s name came up. Liberal think-tank Donny Deutsch appeared on the Morning Joe panel and had this to say:

Why the fascination (with Sarah Palin)? It’s very simple, and I’m not going to be glib here. She is Snooki. It’s the same math. A younger generation– they want to watch this character with big character, with big hair who’s funny; you don’t know she’s going to say. It’s no different, but for a higher demographic! We watch her, she’s interesting looking… what’s she going to say? She’s campy, she’s kitschy, it’s telegenic, its television, its entertaining that’s the fascination. Beginning, middle and end of story, she’s Snooki.

Really, Donny, Snooki??? When you did not think the liberal left’s fascination could not get anymore creepy or delusional, it does. This clearly is because Sarah Palin is a political rock star whom the liberal left cannot help, but talk about constantly throughout each news cycle While objectively reporting the facts is one thing, making asinine comments is another. After Deutsch’s comments, Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski seemed to cowardly distance themselves by quickly moving on to their next topic, sweeping his comments under the rug, which caused me to believe even they believed his comments were both tacky and way off base.
What Deutsch does not seem to understand is that when he compares a woman like Sarah to a star of childish reality show, he is doing a huge disservice to both politics and women. By comparing Sarah to this reality starlet, Mr. Deutsch is basically saying Sarah Palin is only talked about for sheer entertainment value, not the intellectual. Would he compare President Obama to Snooki’s co-star, the Situation? I know this is a very extreme comparison, but it is no different than the comparison Deutsch made this morning. After all, then-candidate Obama based his whole presidential campaign around his charisma and picture-perfect family instead of his voting record and time as a member of the Senate. During the 2008 campaign, people were hanging on then-candidate Obama’s every word, fainting along the campaign trail at the mere sight of him. I wonder if Mr. Deutsch remembers this. Perhaps Mr. Deutsch should stay off the reality trip and stick to reporting on business issues, unless, of course, he is looking to be hired by an entertainment news agency. But then again, I do not think he would last a day with his ridiculous comparisons and utter disregard for reporting the facts and the truth.

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!

– Sarah Palin
