Confident Sarah Palin Continues To Pound Barack Obama “On The Record”

Posted by Gary P Jackson on April 27, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

On the heels of her beat down via Facebook, on Tuesday morning, Sarah Palin went On The Record with Greta Van Susteren on Tuesday night, where she continued to whip Obama like a rented mule.

Right out of the gate Greta highlighted one of Sarah’s comments from the earlier Facebook post:

It’s unbelievable to me that you spent last week in campaign mode, gallivanting around the country to start raising the billion dollars for your reelection bid that is still 19 months away “while Rome burns.” Our economy is in the tank; jobs are as scarce as ever; you’re asking Congress to let you incur even more unsustainable, immoral, freedom-stealing government debt; and many of our brave men and women in uniform are shaking their heads in disbelief over your befuddled military directions.

Yet instead of working with Congress and a wise multitude of advisers to fix some problems, you choose all this campaigning, already? As was recently asked: When do you ever just “roll up your sleeves, unplug the teleprompter” and do the job of governing and administrating for which voters hired you?

After hammering Obama for being in campaign mode, and trying to raise $1 billion for an election that is [gulp] 19 months away, instead of focusing on the nation’s challenges, she starts in on high gasoline prices, Libya [and Obama’s incoherent foreign policy in general] and more.

Sarah reminds us we can’t afford to have the nation’s Commander-in-Chief, our CEO, in campaign mode while “Rome burns“!

Sarah goes on to say it’s almost like Obama can’t be bothered by all of these issues of the day because he’s too busy either running for re-election, playing golf, or going on holiday!

She goes on to say, if that’s the case, the best thing is for government to just get out of the way! Stop with the insane regulations, quantitative easing [printing money, monetizing the debt], coming up with more “stimulus plans” and other nonsense, and just let private businesses and the free market do it’s thing!

Sarah bluntly states nothing is going to change until Obama is out of office.

This is a wonderful interview. Sarah Palin is proving she is a confident stateswoman, and very much at ease talking about issues and policy. This folks, is what a leader looks and sounds like. I know it’s been a while since most have seen or heard one, which is why I point this out.

There is also a twinkle in Sarah’s eyes. She’s a warrior, but a happy one. She reminds me so much of the great Ronald Reagan. He was one tough hombre, but he was always happy and optimistic as well.

Sarah comes off the exact same way. Both in this interview, as well as her Facebook smack-down. She’s tough, but not mean, and uses a fair bit of sarcasm and wit to go along with the beating she’s giving Obama.

The entire interview is powerful, insightful, and even a bit of fun.

At one point she off-handedly mentions Bill Ayers and the fact that he “allegedly” wrote Obama’s first book. She did this as she was taking a shot at Trump and others who were wasting time on nonsensical issues, while REAL issues were being ignored.

She points out the media is loving these distractions, as is the Obama regime.

As we have noted before, the “birther” issue helps Obama more than it hurts him. What she’s saying is: Now that Trump has everyone’s attention, he needs to be talking about substantive issues, something he is not doing.

This all gets back to what she told Sean Hannity last week, when she said it was way too early for her, or anyone else to be running for President. Too many more important issues to be focused on, rather than wasting time gearing up for 2012 and an election that is still almost 2 years away.

Leadership vs politics.

Sarah also gets a nice little shot in at Katie Couric at the end of the interview. Dee-licious!

Enjoy.

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.

Benyamin Korn: The Palin Doctrine

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 18, 2011

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

Benyamin Korn, director of Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin, wrote an op-ed for the New York Sun this week. His article details Governor Palin’s ability to recognize what our current President apparently cannot. He also reminds us that she arrives first to conclusions to which others eventually arrive. Take Libya, for example. Who was first to suggest a no-fly zone in the wake of the recent happenings there? Isn’t it interesting how this suggestion is gaining in popularity? Isn’t it also interesting how the media and the elites seem to have forgotten where they first heard it?

Mr. Korn writes about what he calls “The Palin Doctrine”:

The call by the Arab League for Western military intervention in an Arab state — in this case asking that a UN “no-fly zone” be imposed over Libya – is not only without precedent but it puts in formal terms what Governor Palin stated three weeks ago should have been America’s response to the political and humanitarian crisis now unfolding there.

The former GOP vice presidential candidate was being interviewed on February 23rd on national television by Sean Hannity on a range of issues. On the Libya crisis, she proposed a no-fly-zone to protect the armed and un-armed opposition to the Qaddafi regime. Mrs. Palin’s formulation had been blogged about for nearly a week when it was echoed by the man who, before the Iraq war, had led the Iraq democratic movement in exile, Ahmed Chalabi.

A long-time foe of Saddam Hussein who has emerged as a leading figure in Iraq’s democratically elected legislature. Mr Chalabi recounted in the Wall Street Journal how President George H. W. Bush’s 1991 call for a popular uprising against Saddam had been heeded by the Iraqi people, only to have Saddam then murder some 30,000 of them from helicopter gunships while the Western world stood by.

[…]

Mrs. Palin also continues to link America’s energy policy — a realm in which she has experience — and U.S. foreign and anti-terrorism policies. She recognizes that the ongoing transfer of billions of U.S. petro-dollars to unstable or even hostile Mideast regimes has, since the formation in 1973 of the Organization of Petoleum Exporting Countries, been an drain on U.S. financial resources.

In a critique of Mr. Obama’s energy policies published yesterday at about the same time the Arab League was adopting her prescription for a Libya no-fly-zone, Mrs. Palin laid out how the president’s “war on domestic oil and gas exploration and production has caused us pain at the pump, endangered our already sluggish economic recovery, and threatened our national security.” Nor is Gov. Palin’s insight into complex international issues limited to areas of her immediate expertise.

[…]

More broadly, Mrs. Palin’s address in India will be another step in the growing outline of what might be called The Palin Doctrine. It contrasts sharply with the foreign policy being conducted, if that is the word, by President Obama, who is perplexing not only the Arab world, to which he reached out in his Cairo speech at the start of his presidency, but even his own supporters in the liberal camp, and many in between, who are upset by what might be called his propensity for inaction. It’s an inaction that suggests the Arab League won’t be the only institution that might find itself surprised by the logic of the alert Alaskan.

How Ronald Reagan Handled Libya

Posted by Gary P Jackson on February 24, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Ronald Reagan addressed the nation from the Oval Office April 14, 1986 and announced the results of an air strike on Libya, after the bombing of a Berlin discotheque that was a favorite of American service men.

Reagan didn’t fool around with Gadaffi. He acted swiftly to send a message.

Here’s the time line of the events and how Reagan reacted:

Operation El Dorado Canyon

******************************

On April 5, 1986, a bomb exploded in a discotheque in Berlin frequented by United States service personnel. Of the 200 injured, 63 were American soldiers; one soldier and one civilian were killed.

————————–

On the late evening of 15 April and early morning of 16 April 1986, under the code name El Dorado Canyon, the United States launched a series of military air strikes against ground targets inside Libya.

It is the purpose behind the mission…a mission fully consistent with Article 51 of the U.N. Charter

————————————————-

Gadaffi ordering an attack on Americans “to cause maximum and indiscriminate casualties.” Another communications source, an intercepted Libyan message outlined the attack being planned in West Berlin

—————————–

All except one of these targets were chosen because of their direct connection to terrorist activity. The single exception was the Benina military airfield which based Libyan fighter aircraft. This target was hit to preempt Libyan interceptors from taking off and attacking the incoming US bombers. It should also be noted that the French Embassy in Tripoli and several of the neighboring residential buildings also were bombed inadvertently during the raid; they were not targeted.

———————————-

Mission planners decided, as part of the effort to attain tactical surprise, to hit all five targets simultaneously. This decision had crucial impact on nearly every aspect of the operation since it meant that the available US Navy resources could not perform the mission unilaterally. The only two types of aircraft in the US inventory capable of conducting a precision night attack were the Navy’s A-6s and the Air Force’s F-111s.

The Navy had two aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean at the time planning for the raid: The America and The Coral Sea. Each had ten A-6 aircraft, but these were not the total of 32 aircraft estimated as required to successfully hit all five targets with one raid. The closest F-111s were based in the United Kingdom (UK); and use of these UK based aircraft dramatically affected the scope and complexity of the operation.

Planning was even further compounded when the French refused to grant authority to overfly France. This refusal increased the distance of the flight route from Great Britain to Tripoli by about 1300 nautical miles each way, added 6-7 hours of flight time for the pilots and crews, and forced a tremendous amount of additional refueling support from tanker aircraft.

—————————————

The size of the strike force’s final configuration was immense and complex. Approximately 100 aircraft were launched in direct support of the raid:

========================================

Air Force

28 KC-10 and KC-135 tankers

5 EF-111 Raven ECM (Electronic Countermeasure) aircraft

————–

Navy

14 A-6E strike aircraft

12 A-7E and F/A-18 Electronic warfare and jamming aircraft which undertook air defense suppression for the mission

Several F-14 Tomcats which took up the long range Combat Air Patrol (CAP) responsibilities

4 E-2C Hawkeye airborne command and control and warning aircraft

==========

The actual combat commenced at 0200 (local Libyan time), lasted less than 12 minutes, and dropped 60 tons of munitions. Resistance outside the immediate area of attack was nonexistent, and Libyan air defense aircraft never launched. One FB-111 strike aircraft was lost during the strike. The entire armada remained in the vicinity for over an hour trying to account for all aircraft.

As stated above, the French refused to allow the United States access to their airspace, which resulted in an additional 2300 miles of travel to and from the targets, caused extra in-flight refuelings, and the loss of one strike fighter and her crew. No doubt due to fatigue, our boys accidentally dropped a bomb on the French embassy in Tripoli. Oops.
