“Amazing America with Sarah Palin” News Roundup

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 21, 2014

Sarah_chairWhat:  “Amazing America with Sarah Palin”

Where:  The Sportsman Channel

Date:  Premieres April 3rd

Time:  8:00 p.m. Eastern

In reading these press releases it looks like there will be 13 episodes of “Amazing America” with seven episodes being  co-hosted with Mark Christopher Lawrence and six episodes with Jerry Carroll.  More details are available via these press releases from The Sportsman Channel Pressroom:

New Berlin, WI (March 21, 2014) Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor television for American sportsmen and women, announced that accomplished comedian and dramatic actor, Mark Christopher Lawrence is co-hosting Amazing America with Sarah Palin, the weekly series that will premiere April 3 at 8 p.m. ET.

Lawrence, a native of Compton, Calif., attended The University of Southern California and studied theatre. Currently, a San Diego resident, Lawrence starred on Chuck for five seasons and has been seen as a guest star on many popular television shows throughout the years such as: Seinfeld, Murphy Brown, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Dharma & Greg and My Name is Earl.

Lawrence is the co-host of seven episodes of Amazing America with Sarah Palin and experiences heart-warming and unique stories that exemplify the American dream.  Audiences will experience the life of a professional taxidermist, successful businessmen who are passionate for America and philanthropy – not to mention pastors racing cars and a father and son team of custom knives makers.     More

Press release on co-host Jerry Carroll:

NEW BERLIN, WI (March 21, 2014) – It is not every day a farmer from Willow Spring, North Carolina, launches a career as a TV host after being discovered on YouTube.  However, Jerry Carroll – farmer, agricultural speaker, comedian and most recently, co-host for Sportsman Channel’s Amazing America with Sarah Palin – has done just that. Carroll’s affinity for entertaining the masses shines through on stage, making his new stint as a television co-host, must watch TV. Amazing America with Sarah Palin premieres exclusively on Sportsman Channel, April 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

“I’d had a rough day on the farm mending fencings when I got the call about being on the Sportsman Channel with Sarah Palin,” said Carroll. “I couldn’t believe it was real. I got to travel across the country meeting real, hard-working Americans. It’s been a dream come true.”

Carroll co-hosts six Amazing America episodes, each highlighting different people, places and things that make America what it is. From spending time with country music star Craig Morgan, to learning how to meld his own horseshoe in a Blacksmith Championship, Carroll is intrigued by everyone he meets along the way. Carroll’s attitude and approach exemplify Sportsman Channel’s anthem of “Red, Wild and Blue” throughout each episode.

Jerry’s journey from rural farmer, to comedian, to TV show host embodies the spirit of the show. From the time he could walk, Carroll joined his father and uncle to farm tobacco, corn, small grain, soybeans, cattle and hogs. Spending 14 hours a day in a tractor cab gave him plenty of time to think about his life’s dream of making people laugh.

Carroll has performed in venues from local cattlemen’s association banquets to the Ministers of Provincial Parliament in Toronto, Canada. He also opened for musical acts including: Michael Bolton, Patty Loveless, Lyle Lovett and Larry Gatlin. When he is not traveling the country making people laugh, Carroll resides in Willow Spring, North Carolina taking care of his family farm.

Palin: Culture Matters

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 8, 2013

Culture_Palin

You won’t want to miss this great interview with Sarah Palin conducted by Mark Judge.  Mr. Judge asks Palin some atypical questions but they are worthy questions that conservatives need to address.

From Acculturated:

There is a common trope used in movies and TV, where a character discovers that someone is in love with her and has been for years. “But you never said anything,” the stunned woman says to her long-silent suitor. “You never asked,” usually comes the reply.

That scene comes to mind when thinking about conservatives and popular culture. While liberals talk about movies, books, music, and other arts as part of their general everyday being, conservatives get asked about taxes, abortion, and immigration. We love popular culture, but no one ever asks.

Acculturated is trying to change that. Last year I briefly encountered Sarah Palin at CPAC, the annual Conservative Political Action Committee meeting in Washington, and took the opportunity to ask her an important question: who’s your favorite band? The verdict: Van Halen. As you’ll see in the video, Governor Palin seemed surprised, but then a little delighted, to be asked about rock and roll. Everyone just assumes that that’s Jay-Z wingman President Obama’s turf.

I’ve always wanted to follow up with Governor Palin, and I recently sent her some questions about popular culture. She was kind enough to respond. Here are her answers, followed at the end by a couple of my own observations.

***

Gov. Palin, what is your general philosophy about modern popular culture?

Culture matters. As Andrew Breitbart liked to say, politics is downstream of culture. If you wonder why a civilization is in decline, you have to look at the culture first.

We were both teenagers in the 1980s. Did you have a favorite band or genre—heavy metal, pop, English bands?

My favorite bands as a teen were Van Halen, Boston, and AC/DC.

Do you think conservatives are engaging the popular culture effectively today?

Good question. No, conservatives aren’t infiltrating and influencing pop culture enough, and we’re missing the boat. That’s why I’m fine with, for instance, Bristol being on the shows she’s been on and why I preach against preaching to the choir.

For years, conservatives have glumly waved the white flag when it comes to influencing popular culture. Defeat has been declared many times. But the civic values that conservatism cherishes—like courage, honesty, integrity, hard work, patriotism, faith, fortitude, individual liberty—are values that civilization depends upon. So, if conservatives lose the culture, the culture will collapse and take civilization with it.

For years we have been focused on November election nights, and perhaps not focused enough on Oscar night, or Emmy night, or script buys, or production deals. We have been focused on sending our brightest and best to Washington. But we also need to send them to Hollywood or to the Columbia School of Journalism. We need to take back Hollywood and the mainstream news media. We need to step out of our comfort zones. We can’t allow ourselves to be pushed to the margins. We can’t allow the principles upon which this nation is founded to be ignored or undermined.

In Her Mother’s Footsteps, Bristol Palin Takes on Misogynist Bill Maher

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 19, 2012

President_Call_Iphone
Following in the footsteps of her mother, Bristol Palin speaks her mind via her recently published blog, demonstrating that she is no shrinking violet.

Mr. President, When Should I Expect Your Call?

 

Dear President Obama,

You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next.  You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha.  After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way:

“One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on,” you said.  “I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”

And I totally agree your kids should be able to speak their minds and engage the culture.  I look forward to seeing what good things Malia and Sasha end up doing with their lives.

But here’s why I’m a little surprised my phone hasn’t rung.  Your $1,000,000 donor Bill Maher has said reprehensible things about my family.  He’s made fun of my brother because of his Down’s Syndrome. He’s said I was “f—-d so hard a baby fell out.”  (In a classy move, he did this while his producers put up the cover of my book, which tells about the forgiveness and redemption I’ve found in God after my past – very public — mistakes.)

If Maher talked about Malia and Sasha that way, you’d return his dirty money and the Secret Service would probably have to restrain you.  After all, I’ve always felt you understood my plight more than most because your mom was a teenager.  That’s why you stood up for me when you were campaigning against Sen. McCain and my mom — you said vicious attacks on me should be off limits.

Yet I wonder if the Presidency has changed you.  Now that you’re in office, it seems you’re only willing to defend certain women.  You’re only willing to take a moral stand when you know your liberal supporters will stand behind you.  More
