(Updated) Gov. Palin urges voters to get involved at America’s Last Stand rally

Posted by Dr. Fay on June 27, 2014

Video retrieved from Michael Dyess

Other than live tweets from Steve Spierling and Bean Counter last night, there is scant information out there about Governor Palin’s speech last night at the America’s Last Stand rally in Sevierville, Tennessee.

There is some information about the event in an article by Cameron Taylor at WATE.com:

Sarah Palin among speakers at America’s Last Stand event in Sevierville

Posted: Jun 26, 2014 11:20 PM EST

By CAMERON TAYLOR
6 News Reporter

SEVIERVILLE (WATE) – An event featuring a former vice presidential candidate like Sarah Palin and other well known politicians wrapped up in Sevierville around 11 p.m. They were speaking for a series called America’s Last Stand.

People from all over east Tennessee filled Sevierville’s convention center. They were there for an event called America’s Last Stand which has speakers that encourage local voters to get involved in politics.

[…]

6 News could only take pictures inside where well known politicians like former Senator Rick Santorum and former Governor Sarah Palin spoke to dozens. Other speakers included Fox News personality Judge Jeanie Pirro and Col. Allen West.

Their message was to motivate people in the community to vote in local, state, and national elections.

It’s something some in the area say people need to start doing.

“So few people are willing to speak up. We need to encourage those people to come out and speak up, to talk, to speak to the representatives, to vote, to get out and be active in the circle wherever they are,” said Howard Kingsberry of Sevierville.

[…]

6 News requested an interview with Sarah Palin in advance, but were told when we got to Sevierville Thursday that the former governor would no longer be available.

Instead Palin’s media relations team told 6 News that she was sorry, but would not be able to grant our interview request due to a limited amount of time in her schedule.

Don’t Retreat, Reload: Sarah Palin, Allen West, Rick Santorum Encourage Tea Party to Keep Fighting

27 Jun 2014

SEVIERVILLE, TENNESSEE—Waiting to get into a major Tea Party rally here in the hometown of Dolly Parton, attendees were disgruntled as they stood in line waiting to get through security.

But it wasn’t the long lines waiting to get inside the convention center that frustrated them, it was the Sen. Thad Cochran’s victory over the more conservative Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi runoff race.

“I had a hard time sleeping, because I was so angry,” Sevier Tea Party group chairman Steve Osborn said as he smoked a cigarette before the rally.

In conversations with attendees, and from the stage as Former Governor Sarah Palin, Sen. Rick Santorum, and Rep. Allen West addressed the crowd of about 500, the anger about Cochran’s controversial electoral tactics was palpable.

Tennessee is considered an important battleground in the fight by Tea Party activists in 2014, as conservative challenger Joe Carr is challenging the establishment Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN).

Carr, wasn’t at the rally, but spoke with Breitbart News by phone, asserting that his race was more important than ever given the outcome in Mississippi.

Osborn, whose Tea Party group co-sponsored the event, decried Republicans that had “prostituted themselves” to the Democratic base simply to stay in power.

Other attendees shared the same sentiment.

[…]

“I was completely appalled and disgusted – it wasn’t an honest race,” explained Clare, a woman who attended the rally with her husband Steve.

The couple wore t-shirts to show support for the conservative challenger to Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-TN in the Republican primary, Joe Carr.

Like Cochran, Alexander is taking heat from conservatives for working with Democrats in the Senate – and voting with President Obama.

Clare explained that like Cochran, Alexander would likely rely on support from Democrats to win his election as well – as the state has an open primary.

“Lamar Alexander supports open primaries,” she said, “I think its very clear why, I don’t think he could win if we had closed primaries … he knows it, he needs the Democratic crossover.”

Members of the crowd were keenly aware of Alexander’s record in Washington D.C. and appeared ready to vote him out.

“I think Lamar Alexander is a total sell out, and he’s establishment, he’s too old he’s been there too long, he has no vision for our future,” said Kurt, a man who attended the rally with his son.

He admitted that Carr faced a tough race against a well-funded incumbent

“It’s hard to tackle a giant,” he said, concerned about the funding that Alexander was going to get from the “country club group” of Republicans.

“I’m a Joe Carr fan,” Larry said, calling him a “top drawer” candidate.

[…]

The group of political activists were keenly aware of the disruption in the party, and sought encouragement from three of their political champions who also faced tough losses – former Governor Sarah Palin, former Senator Rick Santorum, and former Rep. Allen West.

Mississippi was also on their minds as well.

“That was a disgrace,” West said. “That was not standing on principal that’s not standing up for what you believe in, that was just a career politician that just wants to go back to Washington D.C. That was despicable, it’s immoral and it’s disgusting.”

Palin also disparaged the Republican party for their actions in Mississippi.

“Well shoot, our own party was proving this last week, to potentially manipulate and exterminate the integrity of a primary election,” she said, pointing out that the “the bloated political clash from both sides were trying to discourage people aligned with the Tea Party.

Santorum also encouraged attendees to continue fighting in spite of the loss.

The message he wanted to send, he told Breitbart News after his speech, was for conservatives to not get discouraged.

“America’s bigger than that, it’s not about one battle its about fighting for what you believes is what is right for the country and staying engaged, we’re not allowed to get discouraged,” he said.

West offered a similar message in his speech.

“This is not our last stand it is our greatest stand,” he said. “Plant the flag. Make a stand.”

Palin reminded activists that the results should inspire them to redouble their efforts, pointing out that the establishment politicians would try to discourage them.

“It does make a difference,” she said. “What you are doing makes a difference and now more than ever we need to ramp it up. Don’t retreat, we gotta reload.”

In spite of their frustration, Palin soon had the crowd laughing as she peppered her speech with political jokes and taking shots against President Obama and his allies.

West, a University of Tennessee graduate, led the crowd in a rendition of the song Rocky Top, much to the delight of the crowd.

Palin took the stage acknowledging that Sevierville was Dolly Parton’s home town, explaining that she once dressed up as Parton for Halloween when she was in High School.

She also reminded them that the media was also trying to sound a death knell for the Tea Party but it was very much alive.

“Us bitter clingers and wingers, we ignored those yappin’ little lapdogs in the media and with a new social media kind of reporting you know we were able to kick those little varmints away, we were able to ignore what it was that they were saying,” she said.

Palin held up Sen. Ted Cruz as an example of a Washington politician that was fighting for them, and explained that it was more important than ever to send him allies in his fight against the Washington establishment.

“He is there for a reason not a season, and that’s what we need more of,” she said. “We need to send the good guys reinforcements to take the battle to Capitol Hill for us.”

Although she hasn’t endorsed Joe Carr yet in his primary, Palin dropped a hint to Tennessee voters that he was one of their allies.

“We need to be pretty discerning here of what kind of ‘Carr’ we send to D.C.,” she said as Carr supporters in the hall cheered.

Carr, however, was not at the rally as the set block of speakers had already been set.

[…]

Carr declined to comment about whether Palin or Santorum had decided to endorse him, but he said that his campaign had already had “productive” conversations with both camps.

He hoped that the rally would inspire Tea Party supporters to stay involved and believe in his campaign.

The Tea Party in Tennessee, Carr said, was “very very very well organized.”

“That’s three veries if your counting,” he said.

in 2012, the Tea Party groups held a vote deciding to support Carr in the fight to defeat Lamar Alexander.

Carr said that McDaniel would have won by at least five points in Mississippi, if the establishment hadn’t worked to “steal an election” by reaching out to Democrats.

He denied that the Cochran victory would affect his own campaign negatively.

“We’re finding that because of that race, there is a great deal of anger and righteous indignation, honestly this has created a great bit of fuel for the fire that is our campaign,” he said.

Palin to Obama: Winning takes Warriors, not tweets and tickles

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 18, 2014

Sarah Palin Addresses Tea Party Rally In New Hampshire On Labor Day

Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page on Friday:

OBAMA TWITTERING TEETERS TOWARDS CHAOS

This photo says it all about the Obama administration’s reliance on junior high-like tweets and tickles in place of a foreign policy rooted in peace through strength. Diplomacy via Twitter is the lazy, ineffectual, naïve, and insulting way for America’s leaders to deal with major national and international issues. It’s embarrassing. Under Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton’s State Department repeatedly refused to recognize Boko Haram as terrorists despite their conventional, predictable Islamic terrorist rants, training, and mission. Now, in a life or death situation, nearly 300 kidnapped Nigerian girls are in the hands of these terrorists awaiting rescue.

And what is the Obama administration’s weapon of choice in this battle for these young girls’ lives? Hashtagging tweets on social media! I kinda-sorta doubt a tweet will intimidate the kidnappers much. So, if you’re going to jump in and do something about these Islamic terrorists at all, then do it right, do it firmly, and kick their ass.

Like the patriot writes in this photo, winning takes Warriors. If you intend to rescue these innocent girls whose only “crime” was seeking an education despite the threats of insane Islamic terrorists who drag women back to the Stone Age (see, Liberals, THAT is the real “war on women” so quit making it up that conservatives wage it), then you need to send a message to the world that our United States military is the strongest force to protect the good guys, and the most deadly against the bad guys. Pretty simple, the world needs to know America is still on the side of the good guys.

If you’re going to get involved anyway, Mr. President, learn to understand this and believe it, then announce it: Victory is only brought to you “courtesy of the red, white and blue.” It’s certainly not won by your mere “unfriending” the bad guys on Facebook. Leading from behind is not the American way.

An Alaskan Review of “Our Sarah: Made In Alaska”

Posted by traceyporreca on October 3, 2012

Determined to give an honest review and not to allow my friendships with the family influence my review of the book, I found it difficult in reading the first few pages not to notice similarities between what was being described, and what I know of the authors. “Fish out of water” feelings in describing the surreal nature of being thrust into the limelight, and the journey of their lives to this point described in ways I’ve witnessed in person, affirmed this book is truly written from the heart of these authors, not just from memory. Personal connections (and difficulties in the timeliness of my review) aside, I endeavor to review “Our Sarah: Made In Alaska.”

Being “Alaskan” is hard to describe to those outside without the typical clichés – the adventure, the rugged landscape and the people who inhabit it, and the lifestyle. I believe it’s all these things that make it hard to describe what it’s like to live here and become a part of it, but this book has done a very good job of describing the components that make up that pioneer spirit. Every person’s walk through life is different, and every Alaskan’s path is even broader. Not gushing over Sarah Palin’s accomplishments, but rather weaving a tale of their life’s journeys, you are left to the realization that each step in life forms us, shapes us, into who we become. We use these influences to make the decisions that affect ourselves and others. The how’s and why’s of Sarah Palin’s decisions as an individual and political influence are left to the reader – the book is a journey you take with Sarah Palin’s father and brother into who she has become. Not spending a lot of time gushing over Sarah and how exciting it is to be a family member, but more time telling Alaskan stories that build a framework of how Sarah came to be the person she is. This book is as much about living life in Alaska and taking all the best things from it, as it is a telling of how that lifestyle shaped who Sarah Palin is today.

The well-known topics of faith, patriotism, family, and a love of outdoors and sports, are dealt with affection and care. This is not a book that tells you why she is who she is – it’s more a book of discovery. While their writing styles are different, each chapter brings you closer to understanding more about Alaska and the Heath/Palin family.

While I personally know Chuck Sr. better than I do his son, I was surprised at some of the things revealed in this book – stories I’ve never heard and things about both their pasts that led to “ah ha” moments and put things into perspective. One of the things I’ve always enjoyed when being around Chuck Sr. are his stories – his ability to tell any tale. He is one who has a gift for being able to recount an event and not make the listener feel as if he is being told a “fish story,” but rather someone who has a sage wisdom about that of which he speaks. You’re privy to a piece of living history in the stories he recounts. His son is an amazingly good writer and does an excellent job of making this book enjoyable while telling his version of growing up, “Alaska Style” in the Heath household.

If you think you’ve heard it all, and read it all – think again. This book makes the picture clearer than ever before, told by those who lived it and were there, not by those who admire or have their own agenda. It led me to appreciate and understand them, and Sarah Palin, even more.

There will be those Alaskans (and those outside), particularly in the media, who will read this review and others and form their own opinions from the reviews – not the book. The comparisons will come as well as some negative meme, and that is truly unfortunate. As an Alaskan, I ask that you read the book and form your own opinion. We Alaskans enjoy our independence and free spirit – it suits us well. After reading this book you can’t help but have a better understanding and appreciation for the foundation that Sarah Palin’s family and their experiences have given her, and this book is a testament to that.

The Palins, Margaret Cho and the Leftiverse

Posted by joshpainter on December 5, 2010

“My mom did not ‘force’ me to go on DWTS”
*
Leftists live in an alternate universe where lies and rumors become their “truth,” and the laws of nature and even common sense don’t apply as they do in the real universe. In the liberal “leftiverse,” rumors, especially those about All Things Palin, are accepted as Gospel, while the Gospels themselves are questioned by many of the leftiverse’s inhabitants. For example, “dirt” on Sarah Palin and her family in the leftiverse media water cooler doesn’t settle at the bottom; it percolates very rapidly to the top. It begins on gossip websites and moonbat blogs, both of which are fueled by Haterade, and is quickly sucked upwards to major media outlets such as CBS and CNN.

Case in point: The gossip websites were all abuzz last week with a rumor that Bristol’s onetime fellow DWTS contestant Margaret Cho had repeated on her personal blog, and in no time at all the rumor had become “Marquee” news at CNN:

“I heard from someone who really should know (really should seriously know the dirt really really) that the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it,” Cho wrote on her blog on November 29.

“Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do DWTS so that ‘America would fall in love with her again’ and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012 with America behind her all the way.”

To sum things up, Cho explained, “Instead of being supposedly ‘handicapped’ by the presence of her teen mom daughter, now Bristol is going to be an ‘asset’ – a celebrity beloved for her dancing.”

[…]

“Keep in mind there are other forces at work here and it’s not just for the love of dance,” she noted, adding, “Now I am scared I am going to wake up with a decapitated moose head in my bed.”

There was just one major problem with this rumor: It wasn’t true. But in the leftiverse, facts are not checked for veracity, and no one who passed this lie on bothered to ask Bristol — not Cho, not the gossip reporters, not the lamestream major media outlets. The lie became a rumor, and the rumor became “news.” This is commonplace in the leftiverse, the same alternate reality in which Tina Fey’s joke that “Sarah Palin could see Russia from her house” was attributed to Gov. Palin herself, not the SNL character.

Bristol Palin set the record straight on Facebook late Saturday night:

I was somewhat taken aback to read about me in a blog by my friend and fellow contestant, Margaret Cho. In a post she called “Pistol Whipped” she wrote that “the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it. Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly . . . for not winning the election,and so she told Bristol she “owed” it to her to do DWTS . . . .” Let me shamelessly steal from Saturday Night Live: “Really, Margaret? Really?”

I will give my friend credit for creativity, and extra points for getting so many “facts” wrong in so few sentences. Let me be blunt: my mom did not “force” me to go on DWTS. She did not ask me either. The show approached me. I thought about it. I made the decision. After first worrying for me in terms of being exposed to those who hate us for what we believe in, both my mom and my dad became my number one supporters. Anyone who watched the show could tell I performed better, and I felt better about myself, when they were in the audience. I wanted to make them both proud, but politics had nothing to do with it. Loving my parents had everything to do with it.

It saddens me that people would think that my mom would “blame” me for anything that occurred in the 2008 election–much less “harshly” and “openly.” I think that canard (there, I said it again), has been floating around since then also. I will set the record straight, though my mom already did in her bestselling book “Going Rogue”; there were a number of reasons President Obama won in 2008, but the primary reason was that the economy was starting to falter and the majority of voters thought Obama could do a better job than my mom and John McCain. It turns out, two years later, the majority of voters were wrong, but we can talk about that another time. The point is, I seriously doubt anyone who considers herself a student of American politics truly believes I impacted even one vote in that election.

There you have it. Why do I want to set the record straight? Because it is this type of hurtful and false narrative that people promote to make my mom look bad. For 20 years my mom had my back–and for the rest of my life I will have hers.

To my friend Margaret Cho, if you ever have a question, call me girlfriend. Don’t ever rely on “sources” who claim to know me or my family. You will be taken every time.

[More]

Bristol has learned, as her mom learned from the School of Slings and Arrows, to quickly shoot down these lies from the leftiverse before they take hold in the real one. If Cho, who has been viciously attacking Bristol’s mom since long before she met The Pistol on DWTS, had only shown her new friend Bristol the consideration and common decency any real friend has for another by going to the 20-year-old to check out the rumor before going public with it on her blog, Bristol’s Facebook post would not have been necessary. But in the leftiverse politics trumps all, even friendship.  Cho is the kind of “friend” that will run a sword through Bristol to try to get to Sarah, her intended target. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Gov. Palin’s publisher sues Gawker for copyright infringement

Posted by joshpainter on November 20, 2010

HarperCollins, the publisher of Sarah Palin’s forthcoming second book, filed a federal lawsuit against Gawker Media Friday for leaking pages of America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag ahead of its November 23 release date:

Two days before the Manhattan filing, gutter website Gawker published images of more than 20 of the open book’s pages. Gov. Palin tweeted Thursday, “Isn’t that illegal?”

Her publisher contends it is. The lawsuit asks that Gawker be banned from what it terms “further copyright infringement” and that Gawker deliver the source material to the publisher so it can be destroyed. HarperCollins is also seeking financial damages.

Gawker did not immediately respond to e-mails seeking comment Friday evening, but an item published the day before and titled “Sarah Palin Is Mad at Us for Leaking Pages From Her Book” defended the blog’s actions and linked to websites defining the fair use doctrine of copyright law.

The blog was not the first site to publish excerpts from the book, which has been billed as a tribute to American values, but it refused to take them down after receiving a letter demanding that it do so, the lawsuit said. The Associated Press bought a copy of the book ahead of its Nov. 23 release date.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate’s first book, the memoir Going Rogue: An American Life, has sold over 2.7 million copies.

A few grains of salt to take with that WSJ/NBC Poll

Posted by joshpainter on September 29, 2010

*
We’re talking about the poll that the lamestream media is hyping today as supposedly showing Democrats getting more excited about the midterm elections. You know, the one which allegedly shows that Bill Clinton is the most popular politician in the country and purports that Sarah Palin has lower approval ratings than Harry Reid? Yes, that one. Well, the devil is in the internals, as we always like to say when we’re talking about polls. So here are a few grains of salt that need to be taken with this poll:

FACTUALS: Now I am going to ask you a few questions for statistical purposes only.

QP1a Now, many people we’ve talked with tonight were unable to vote in primary elections this year, how about you, did you vote in a 2010 primary election in your state? (IF “YES,” THEN ASK:) And, did you vote in the
Democratic or Republican Party Primary?+
Yes, voted in a Republican Party Primary …………… 28
Yes, voted in a Democratic Party Primary……………. 33

Yes, Voted 82
Voted for Barack Obama……………. 41
Voted for John McCain………………. 31

QF4 Generally speaking, do you think of yourself as (ROTATE:) a Democrat, a Republican, an independent, or something else? (IF “DEMOCRAT” OR “REPUBLICAN,” ASK:) Would you call yourself a strong (Democrat/Republican) or not a very strong (Democrat/Republican)? (IF “NOT SURE,” CODE AS “NOT VERY STRONG DEMOCRAT/REPUBLICAN.”) (IF “INDEPENDENT,” ASK:) Do you think of yourself as closer to the Republican Party, closer to the Democratic Party, or do you think of yourself as strictly independent? (IF “NOT SURE,” CODE AS “STRICTLY INDEPENDENT.”)

Not very strong Democrat ………….. 15
Independent/lean Democrat……….. 8
Strictly Independent ………………….. 13

Sfla Conservative, a local Tea Party group, says its “proudly partnering with The Liberty and Freedom Foundation” to bring the former Alaska governor to the American Airlines Arena Oct. 6 — five days before President Barack Obama comes to town to raise money for imperiled congressional Democrats.

“Governor Palin is in Miami to raise funds to help elect principled grassroots conservatives,” the announcement reads. “You are invited to get involved in this, the most critical midterm election in our Republic’s history.”
