Governor Palin’s Newsweek Article Leads Me to One Conclusion: She’s Running

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 10, 2011

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

Newsweek, scheduled to hit the stands tomorrow with Governor Palin on the cover and an in-depth article inside, has become available early online. Governor Palin makes it clear during this interview that she believes she can defeat President Obama in a national election. Read the full article here. Below is an excerpt:

“I believe that I can win a national election,” Sarah Palin declared one recent evening, sitting in the private dining room of a hotel in rural Iowa. The occasion for her visit to quintessential small-town America was a gathering of the faithful that would have instantaneously erupted into a fervent campaign rally had she but given the word. Instead, it had been another day on the non–campaign trail, this one capped by a sweet victory: she had just attended the premiere of a glowingly positive documentary about her titled The Undefeated.

“The people of America are desperate for positive change, and deserving of positive change, to get us off of this wrong track,” she told me during a conversation that lasted late into the night and, inevitably, kept returning to the subject that has titillated the media and spooked Republican presidential contenders for months: her political intentions. “I’m not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around,” she said. “But I do believe that I can win.”

Two years after stepping down as governor of Alaska—not a retreat, she later said of the decision, quoting Korean War general Oliver Smith, but “advancing in another direction”—Palin has proved herself an enduring force capable, with minimal effort, of keeping political professionals and, especially, the press in a state of perpetual imbalance. This derives partly, of course, from her standing as a possible presidential candidate with presumed frontrunner potential, a status she seems inclined to maintain for as long as possible. On the day we met, her daughter Bristol had declared in a television interview that Palin had already made a decision about whether to run for president—an assertion that Palin quickly tried to shoot down. “I think Bristol has made up her mind, and Bristol wants me to run for president,” she said. “But we’re still thinking about it. I’m still thinking about it.”

If Palin doesn’t end up running, the reason will be simple, she said. “Family. If it came down to the family just saying, ‘Please, Mom, don’t do this,’ then that would be the deal-killer for me, because your family’s gotta be in it with you.”

Family has been elemental to Palin’s national political identity from the moment she was introduced as John McCain’s running mate in 2008, accompanied by her outdoorsman husband, Todd, and four of their five children, including their youngest, Trig, who’d been born four months earlier with Down syndrome. The press’s fascination with this picturesque brood quickly turned so darkly speculative that candidate Barack Obama threatened to fire anyone in his campaign found participating in the conjectures.

Yet Palin, who is 47, now hinted that her family would not try to dissuade her from entering the race. “My kids know that life isn’t supposed to be easy, and it’s certainly not fair,” she said. “And they know that, even on their end, they have to make some sacrifices for the greater good.”

Be sure to read the entire piece.

Governor Palin is well-aware of the need for a leader who has experience, common sense, love of country, and a servant’s heart. She is also aware that she possesses all these characteristics. It is clear to me that she knows she is needed at this time in history. Everywhere she goes people are begging her to run, to make the sacrifice, to do what’s necessary to put this country back on the right track.

From her own words, I deduce that the only thing that can stop her from taking this all-important, life-changing step is an outright plea from her family not to run. She suggested in this article, however, that her family isn’t asking that of her, and that they understand that it costs to do the right thing, to make an impact, to effect change. I, therefore, make the prediction I have made for almost three years now: Governor Palin is running for President of the United States. I add the prediction that the announcement is coming soon.

REMINDER: The Undefeated premieres this Friday, July 15th. Learn why she’s so confident that she has the record to take on President Obama, win, and lead this country effectively.

Stunning The Halibut … And The Democrats

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 30, 2010

First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.

~ Mahatma Gandhi

By Gary P Jackson

So I’m catching up on my reading and find this piece by Steve Tuttle in the far left Newsweek magazine, of all places. For the first half of the article Tuttle tells the tale of a democrat party in shambles, and how they ain’t seen nothing yet. The gist of the story starts on page two, wherein Tuttle uses a recent episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska where Sarah and her daughter Bristol go commercial fishing for halibut as a metaphor for the “bonking” she is going to give the democrats in 2012:

Stunning the Halibut

If the Democrats think things are bad now, wait until Sarah Palin grabs them by their bleeding hearts.

This week I stumbled upon Sarah Palin’s Alaska by looking it up in the TV directory and sitting down on the couch at the time it started so I could view it. I watched Palin take a club to a huge halibut that was flopping around on the deck of a boat, knocking it out cold so it could be thrown into the hold of a professional fishing vessel. She said in her singsong voice, which seems sometimes oddly Germanic, that she was “stunning the halibut.” Not only was I entranced by her awesomeness, but I now have a new favorite catchphrase.

As the fish story unfolded, Palin said, “I wasn’t goin’ to hesitate either, especially when the fish were pilin’ up and they’re slappin’ around. They could do some damage here. We need to calm these boys down real quick.” As the huge halibut flopped about, she cried out, “Sheesh! That hurts like crap!” She explained to the camera that she got slapped across the thigh by one of them: “I realized—yeah, they could hurtcha!” Later, she and her dancing daughter, Bristol, took the halibut’s still-beating hearts and held them in their hands. The harder the Palin gals squeezed, the faster the little panicked hearts pumped. The Democrats need look no further for symbolic harbingers of what could happen in 2012.

You can read the entire article here.

I haven’t written for a few days, instead spending a little time doing some research as well as taking the pulse of the Ruling Class.

Something funny has started to happen. It seems the left wing media has found a whole new respect for Sarah Palin, at least among many. They have obviously realized the past two years worth of vicious 24/7 attacks on the woman and her family have been a bust. Instead of bringing Sarah down, they have destroyed their own credibility and in the process made her stronger.

The left wing sees the writing on the wall.

Obama and his radical Congress overreached like no other in history. They attempted to take America all of the way to the left in one sitting. The American people are not happy, and on November 2 told Obama and Congress not no, but HELL NO, to this insanity.

The American people are fired up, and in it’s present form, the democrat party is finished.

What we are seeing is the progression on the left from ridicule, to fighting, to acceptance of the inevitable, that Sarah Palin will likely be our next President. What these writers hope to do is scare Obama and crew back to reality with the knowledge Sarah is coming for them, and will win.

What’s just as interesting to me though, is the reaction from the Republican elites in the past few weeks. Showing how out of touch they are, as well as slow to react, they are still at the ridicule stage, and moving towards all out war against Sarah.

We’ve had all of the blue bloods in the party come out and talk trash. They saw the same election results the left did, and saw the largest shift in Congress and the state houses in over 100 years. They saw a huge wave of Common Sense Conservatism sweep the land, led by Sarah Palin. This is wave has the potential to be much larger, and more durable than the Reagan Revolution. [and we all know how the blue bloods hated Reagan]

Of course, since the base of the Republican party has never liked or trusted the establishment, this isn’t exactly earning them, or whatever back bencher candidate they trot out in 2012, any friends.

The Ruling Class [in both parties] have a lot to lose when Sarah Palin becomes President. Their power will be gone, hopefully forever, and be given back to it’s rightful owners, the American people.

It’s interesting to note the GOP elites actually fear this [and Sarah] as much …. or more …. than the lefties do!
