Palin: TV Ad for Endorsed Candidate Sarah Steelman

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 31, 2012

 

“Steelman for Senate” has released a 30 second commercial with Governor Sarah Palin’s endorsement of her candidacy.  Regular readers of this blog may recall the July 17th announcement of Palin’s endorsment for Steelman who is seeking to represent the fine people of Missouri in the U.S. Senate.

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.

Total Dominance! Red State Straw Poll: Sarah Palin 52.4% Herman Cain 21.4% Ron Paul 10.2% Rick Perry 7.3%

Posted by Gary P Jackson on October 2, 2011

By Gary P Jackson.

I find this truly and absolutely delicious.

There have been a lot of presidential straw polls since silly season started, some going all the way back to a year ago this month. I’ve seen all kinds of results, but I’ve never seen such a blow-out victory for any candidate.

The website Red State ran an interesting poll in September. They asked readers who their first choice was for the Republican nomination for President, then ask who would be second choice through fifth choice. The results for first choice:

Sarah Palin 52.4% Herman Cain 21.4% Ron Paul 10.2% Rick Perry 7.3% Mitt Romney 2.4% Newt Gingrich 2.0% Michele Bachmann 1.1%. None of the other candidates were able to garner as much as 1% of the vote.

Red State did something different, telling voters they could only vote for a person once. In other words, you couldn’t vote for your candidate for first choice, then go on to vote for them as second choice and so on. They told voters that ballots with multiple votes for the same person would be voided.

It’s no surprise then, that Herman Cain was the overwhelming second choice candidate, with 33.7% of the vote. Newt Gingrich was third choice with 19.9% of the vote. Page four sees Newt again with 16.8%. Page five has Newt once more winning with 13.2%.

Out of the five chances for his fans, Rick Perry never gets more than 9.3% of the vote.

As a Palin supporter, this poll is very gratifying. Red State has been little more than Rick Perry Central since the Texas Governor entered the race. Red State and it’s editor Erick Erickson have been notoriously anti-Palin since day one. In fact, Erickson totally flipped out on Friday as the end of the month, and the media hyped “drop dead date” for Sarah Palin to announce her candidacy came and went. You can read about what Sarah Palin really said here.

On Friday Erickson took to Twitter and used his website to attack Sarah Palin and her supporters on an almost hourly basis. It was rather childish, and as William A. Jacobson pointed out, wasn’t doing his candidate Rick Perry any good. Having dealt with Perry fans, Erickson’s behavior is pretty typical though. In another post Jacobson warned Perry that throwing in with the likes of Erick Erickson will do you more harm than good.

Run, don’t walk, away from people who put their own self-aggrandizement and ego ahead of your campaign’s best interests.

Good advice.

A lot of bloggers wrote about Erickson’s meltdown, but we enjoyed HillBuzz’s Kevin DuJan’s a lot!

Wow. Erik Erikson at Redstate is having a complete mental breakdown on his site today, consumed with his obsessive hatred of Sarah Palin

Read it all here.

Red State and the editor’s obsessions have certainly not helped their candidate Rick Perry, but Perry hasn’t helped his own cause either, and new national polls show him fading fast.

The Red State poll, like all straw polling, is not scientific, but is a good indicator of support. Although not a fan of Red State in any way shape or form, we feel they put in the proper safeguards to make sure this vote is legit.

In these sort of polls, it’s the trends that matter. We’ve watched these straw polls for a year now, and the one take-away is Sarah Palin wins these more often than not, and has a solid base of support that never wavers. We see other candidates get hot and then come crashing down. Sarah Palin stays strong and steady. Her support is real and stable.

PPP Ohio: Governor Sarah Palin Highest In Favorablilty Ratings: A Key Finding

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 29, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Ohio is one of the all important swing states, a must win, if someone wants to become President of the United States. Making a favorable impression on Ohioans goes a long way towards winning over the entire nation.

Though some national polls that over sample democrats and don’t include likely voters [the only reliable group to sample] have shown Sarah Palin has a “favorability problem,” every legit poll that specifically targets likely Republican voters and Republican leaning independents has shown Sarah Palin to have the best favorability among the candidates. This has been consistent since serious polling for 2012 started.

Ohio is no different. Democrat polling firm PPP’s latest poll shows Governor Palin has 65% approval rating as compared to Rick Perry at 50%.

We’re 15 months out from the general election of November 2012, and some 8 to 10 months away from settling the primaries. That’s too far away to use votes as a guide as to who will be the Republican nominee. In fact, history shows those who lead early also peak early, and rarely make the final cut of candidates vying for the nomination. After all, other than a few debates, no one is really campaigning yet.

Favorability is the key this early on. The fact that Sarah’s favorability is always higher than any one else, among the folks who will actually nominate her, is the key. High favorability means people will listen to what she has to say, and once she starts putting forth more of her plans to Revive, Renew, and Restore America, the likelihood of a large, receptive audience is far greater than with any other candidate.

A lot of folks live and die by polls that show supposed vote count, and over a long period of time one can spot certain trends, but the numbers to look at this far out are the ones measuring favorability. Those trends show Sarah Palin is consistently seen in the best light by Republicans and Republican leaning independents.

In my opinion, favorability equates to potential voters. At the very least it means a large group of people who will listen to what a candidate has to say.

In a key state like Ohio this spells trouble, not only for the rest of the Republican candidates, but Barack Obama too.

Can We FINALLY Put An End To This “Palin Will Sit 2012 Out And Endorse Perry” BS?

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 9, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

On Friday, Contributing Editor Whitney Pitcher published a great article: Governor Palin–Leading the Fight on Debt and Liabilities. The article highlights Governor Palin’s superior record of budgetary and liability management. Specifically Whitney compares the records of governors Palin, Huntsman, Pawlenty, Romney, and Rick Perry.

Besides being the Central Illinois 9/12 Project coordinator, and Illinois coordinator for Organize4Palin, Whitney is also a top contributor for Conservatives4Palin.

Whitney’s article was also published on Conservatives4Palin’s website. Tammy Bruce tweeted the article, and Sarah Palin read it and re-tweeted:

Now this is significant, as Whitney’s article points out Rick Perry tripled our debt in Texas during his time as governor.

Here’s the side by side comparison:

During the fiscal years for which Sarah Palin exercised budgetary authority as Governor of Alaska (FY08 through FY10)

• Debt outstanding increased 12.7%, or 4.2% per year

• Per capita debt outstanding increased 7.4%, or 2.5% per year

Total liabilities decreased 34.6%, or 11.5% per year

Total liabilities per capita decreased 37.7%, or 12.6% per year

During the fiscal years for which Rick Perry exercised budgetary authority as Governor of Texas (FY02 through FY10)

• Debt outstanding increased 184.2%, or 20.5% per year

• Per capita debt outstanding increased 140.4%, or 15.6% per year

• Total liabilities increased 60.6%, or 6.7% per year

• Total liabilities per capita increased 35.8%, or 4.0% per year

Forget for a minute that under Rick Perry Texas debt has increased a whopping 184.2% or 20.5% per year, look at liabilities.

Under Governor Sarah Palin’s watch, liabilities actually DECREASED 34.6%, or 11.5% per year and liabilities per capita DECREASED 37.7%, or an outstanding 12.6% per year.

Of the five governors examined, Sarah Palin was the only one to decrease her state’s liabilities.

While nowhere near Obama’s runaway numbers, there is no denying that under Rick Perry’s watch, Texas debt and liabilities have grown significantly.

Though one could easily call Sarah Palin the “National Security candidate” or the “Energy candidate” make no mistake about it, Sarah Palin is the Fiscally Responsible candidate.

A lot of folks engage in wishcasting instead of looking at facts.

One of the GOP establishment’s favorite talking points is Sarah will sit 2012 and endorse someone else.

As Perry started dipping his foot in the water, the establishment types and their fan bois have been singing the tune that Sarah Palin would sit things out and endorse Rick Perry. Again, this is wishcasting at it’s finest. [and a bit of propaganda hoping to create a narrative that will stick]

As Ian Lazaran at Conservatives4Palin points out so well:

If Palin is endorsing Perry, why is she re-tweeting an article that slams his inability to control what Governor Palin has described as the “foundation of destruction?”

Indeed.

As Ian also points out, Whitney’s article is also a strong endorsement for Sarah Palin as our next President. Whitney ends her article by saying:

Governor Palin had courage enough to take on pension reform and reduce spending when times were good. Now, with the economy circling the drain, America is in need of a leader who is willing to do the same…again. That is why she has spoken of the need to reform entitlements. That is why she called out President Obama for his hypocrisy and inability to prioritize spending during the debt ceiling debate.

That is why she criticized Governor Romney for weighing in on the debt ceiling only after a deal had been reached. Now is not the time for hypocrisy, incompetent leadership, or retrospective armchair governing. Now is the time for a President who already has “womaned up” and led on a state level and is ready to do the same on a federal level.

Sarah has said that she doesn’t need a title to make a difference, and she’s proven that many times already. She’s said that if a good, solid Conservative candidate came around that she thought could get the job done, she’d gladly step aside. With that said, in every interview, when asked, she’s repeatedly said she doesn’t see anyone that meets her standards. And let’s face it, at this point, we’ve seen all of the candidates and prospective candidates. There is no dark horse candidate who is going to magically appear and save us all. What we have is what we have.

Though Sarah doesn’t need a title to have her voice heard, she does, in fact, need a title to fundamentally restore America.

When it comes to shaping the debate, Sarah Palin has done more from the sidelines than our elected officials have, but to actually lead America out of this incredible mess, she will have to have an office. A big office. An OVAL Office.

Sarah Palin’s record as Governor, Mayor, and Alaska’s top oil and gas regulator is solid proof that she is the right woman for the job. Unlike the rest, Sarah has never wavered from the solid principles that have made the United States the greatest nation on earth.

Accept no substitutes.

Sarah Palin Wins August Hot Air Straw Poll With Highest Percentage Yet

Posted by Gary P Jackson on August 3, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin has won every Hot Air presidential straw poll ever presented. And she has won them very convincingly. This month is no different. With 2309 votes Sarah takes 40% of the vote compared to second place Rick Perry’s 33% with 1888 votes. Support for Michele Bachmann has collapsed. She only gets 442 votes, 8%.

This month HA brings back the Vice President question with some interesting results. Congressman Allen West is usually the run-away favorite in these things, but this time Senator Marco Rubio crushes the competition with a solid 32% of the vote. West comes in second with 13%. My guess is the debt ceiling debate changes some minds, as Rubio was out front and center against the deal, and West was for it.

The second choice presidential candidate for those surveyed is Rick Perry, with 24%.

Film Creator Stephen Bannon: “Fire From the Heartland” Was Inspired By Sarah Palin

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 27, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Not long after I hit “publish” on the story about Citizens United’s attempt to pump up Michele Bachmann in Iowa by repackaging the movie Fire From The Heartland, from a movie about conservative women, to a movie about [and “starring“] Michele Bachmann, I got a couple of notes reminding me about the original interviews with the film’s creator Stephen Bannon.

At the time, Bannon was quite clear Sarah Palin was the inspiration for the movie. In fact, Bannon credits Sarah Palin for igniting this fire and inspiring women to get involved. In hindsight, it seems making this movie is what lit a fire in Bannon’s belly to create The Undefeated, a movie that is causing quite a stir nationwide.

From Fox News:

Documentarian Stephen Bannon has made a film called “Fire From the Heartland” which chronicles the stories of several women important to the conservative movement.

No one had ever touched the topic, and in addition, we did it in a way that let the women speak for themselves,” Bannon told Pop Tarts. “I wanted to pick a cross-section of women who would be emblematic – congresswomen, known commentators, and a cross section of Tea Party activists.

The inspiration for the film came to Bannon, who previously produced “Generation Zero,” when Sarah Palin emerged on the national political scene as John McCain’s vice presidential running mate scene in 2008.

I noticed there is a new generation of young, female activists who are at the forefront of this rebellion who are inspired by Sarah Palin. I wanted to tell their stories and I wanted to do it in a way that could be linked back to the founders of the country – Abigail Adams, the pioneer women, the frontier women, Clare Boothe Luce, Phyllis Schlafly,” Bannon said. “If you look at the conservative rebellion, it is women that are at the vanguard – not men, and that has never happened before in this country.”

Fire From the Heartland” features several key female Republican figures, from congresswoman Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming and Jean Schmidt of Ohio, to prominent political voices Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin. But Bannon credits Palin for “re-awakening” the conservative female movement in the United States, and standing tall against what he calls personal attacks brought on by the entertainment community and liberal media.

Hollywood does not understand Middle America and it certainly does not understand, and in fact, despises, the core values of the country. The elite of Hollywood hold it in tremendous disregard. I could not think higher Governor Palin, she is a force of nature and has inspired a generation of women to really get actively involved in politics and more importantly, take their culture back and take their country back,” he said. “I’ve seen it across the country. These women are incredibly inspired, and were not really politically engaged until Sarah Palin came on the scene.

Fire From the Heartland” was made without Palin’s involvement, but Bannon hopes she makes her way to a screening over the coming weeks.

We made this totally independently of any influence so we could tell our story, but I think Governor Palin would love the film, hopefully we’ll get to show it to her,” Bannon said.

Looking at this year’s midterm elections, Bannon predicted Republican gains, but said no real change can come until the Presidential election of 2012.

I think (Obama) is going down the path of destroying the Democratic Party because he has driven out the moderates, and we’re going to have a huge wave of enthusiasm that brings conservatives back in to at least share power,” he said. “But if anybody thinks that November 2nd is going to change things, they’re fooling themselves. It’s going to be a nasty, nasty two years until the Presidential election of 2012, because right now, all we’re trying to do is really stop his administration in its tracks. We haven’t even begun the types of cuts we have to make in federal spending, the types of restructuring we have to do with the federal budget, what we have to do to rebuild our manufacturing base, are so large that people don’t realize what’s in front of them.”

From Bannon’s interview it’s clear who inspired him to make this film, and who, in Bannon’s opinion, has awakened Conservative women, and inspired them to get involved.

Now I know to some all of this may seem petty, and let me once again state that we haven’t found evidence of Bachmann or her team promoting this as a film about her, but what Citizen’s United is doing is not only dishonest, it’s a slap in the face to everyone featured in this great film.

Citizens United is trying to create the impression this is a brand new film about Bachmann, when in fact, it was created last year. We’re not sure if their motivation is to help Bachmann win Iowa, or simply latch on to her as a way of raising money for their own cause, but does it matter?

Even though Sarah Palin was the inspiration, I’m sure she would be the first to say she wasn’t the “star” of this movie at all. Instead she’s point to the strong women featured in the movie: Ann Coulter, Michelle Easton, Michelle Malkin, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, Dana Loesch, S.E Cupp, Jenny Beth Martin, Jamie Radtke, Sonnie Johnson, Jean Schmidt, Cynthia Lummis, and Michelle Moore.

Sarah Palin would be celebrating all of the strong Conservative women who are making a difference on a daily basis.
