Governor Palin at Heroes Among Us and White House Correspondents’ Dinner Afterparties

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 1, 2011

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

Last night, Governor Palin spoke at Heroic Media’s “Heroes Among Us” fundraiser dinner. As always, she defended the pro-life message and stressed the importance of having a culture that promotes the worth of all life–including the unborn. The Governor shared her own story and her daughter Bristol’s story, for they are examples of how to handle less than ideal circumstances. Being in attendance personally, I was able to witness again the respect that she receives by those who know that she not only talks the talk, but she has been walking this walk.

At the start of her speech, she thanked those who support groups like Heroic Media, stating that our commitment to life makes us part of the solution rather than the problem.

Upon learning that she was pregnant with a child with Down Syndrome, she said, she went through an array of emotions which led her to rely on God’s strength, Who said He would not give us any more than we can handle, yet she remembers saying to God, “I think you over-estimated me this time!” She spent her pregnancy, she so transparently shared, crying out for God’s miraculous touch.

The moment Trig was born, as he melted in her arms, she knew God had answered her prayers. He changed her world then, and he continues to inspire, as she watches him greet every day with applause–literally. “Trig is the light of our life,” she said.

She then shared Bristol’s story–yes, less than ideal circumstances once again, but Bristol found strength to do the right thing. Both mother and daughter embraced life, believing in God’s strength–and not taking counsel from those who choose to believe that women are not strong enough to handle the challenges they face. “Choosing life may not be the easy path, but it is the right path,” she declared.

Contrast this to Planned Parenthood, which the Governor called out for all its corruption and dedication to abortion. Planned Parenthood, she said, doesn’t show other options. “What they offer is not real choice.” She went on to state that the federal government has no business subsidizing such an organization, particularly when we have a major fiscal problem on our hands. America gives $1,000,000 taxpayer dollars to them every day, and Governor Palin emphatically said, she doesn’t want her money paying for the abortion of a child. We will not stop until not one cent goes to Planned Parenthood and funding abortion, she vowed.

She spoke at length about Lila Rose, whom she presented with the Heroes Among Us Award. Governor Palin praised Lila for being passionate about life, for exposing Planned Parenthood for its illegal activities, and for fearlessly speaking out on this issue. She compared Lila’s work to that of human rights activism. “She’s using her voice to defend the voiceless,” the Governor said. Unlike what you hear in the media, Governor Palin is not intent on making herself the focus. Much–if not most–of her speech was dedicated to praising this young woman whom she respects greatly.

Upon receiving the award, Ms. Rose immediately called attention to Governor Palin’s own heroism, stating that she is a hero to all women. Heroic Media defines a hero as “someone who makes great personal sacrifices for the benefit of others.” Yes, both Governor Palin and Lila Rose qualify.

After speaking, the Governor remained for photographs in a separate location, and was most gracious as people shared their stories, thanked her profusely, and asked for autographs.

The night was not yet over, however, as the Palins entered the lion’s den. The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was last night also, and there were several afterparties. Those who say Governor Palin is afraid of the lamestream media or will only talk to Fox News haven’t a clue. She mingled with those who routinely misrepresent her and attack her family, and she did so with incredible style and grace.

The first stop was the French Ambassador’s residence for the Vanity Fair White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) Dinner Afterparty. Click here to see a picture of Governor Palin; Todd Palin; John Coale, Greta Van Susteren’s husband; and me at the party.

The next stop was the Italian Embassy for the MSNBC bash. The story here, of course, was Rachel Maddow–of all people–greeting Governor Palin and serving her a diet coke after all the bashing and beating she does of her on the air. It amazes me how differently people react when they encounter the Governor face to face.

Into the lion’s den she went, and the crowd gathered around her. Everyone–and I do mean everyone–wanted an introduction, a word with her, a picture. Some would say she shouldn’t give some of these people the time of day after their treatment of her and her family, but that’s not who is she. She represented herself as the public servant and gracious individual she is.

It was a night to remember.

Maddow explains why she fell for Palin/Egypt hoax

Posted by joshpainter on February 2, 2011

We posted Tuesday about how MSPDS host Rachel Maddow, whom the left touts as “brilliant” (like Bill Clinton, she’s a Rhodes scholar), fell hook, line and sinker Monday for an internet spoof by a satirical website that Gov. Sarah Palin was advocating an attack on Egypt.

Maddow took 24 hours to come up with an excuse, and, as Noel Sheppard reports, on Tuesday’s program explained that it was all conservatives’ fault, in particular that diabolical Glenn Beck:

And that was Maddow’s explanation for getting duped by a satirical website: in her view, conservatives – especially Glenn Beck – are saying all kinds of crazy things. As a result, it’s become difficult for her to know what’s real and what’s a spoof.

If this is the case, then maybe she should stop reporting on what conservatives are saying.

If she can no longer discern between fact and fiction, serious commentary and satire, she can’t possibly be trusted or taken seriously about anything, for who knows what her next source will be and whether or not it’s actually legitimate.

Maybe more importantly, how can anyone on television – Rhodes scholar or not! – be deserving of the public’s trust if she blames her own mistakes on others not at all involved in her program?

Sadly, this is par for the course on MSNBC as well as other liberal media outlets.

These are the same people that disgustingly blamed conservatives for the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) last month. They’re used to pointing fingers at others without merit.

Leftists have been mocking University of Idaho graduate Sarah Palin for two years for biting down on a prank by two Canadian DJs pretending to be French President Nicolas Sarkozy, claiming it makes her dumb as a rock. By their thinking, then, Rhodes Scholar Rachel Maddow, because she fell for an internet spoof, should be dumb as a bag of dirt.

After all, the DJs got Gov. Palin’s telephone number and called her, putting the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate on the spot. But Maddow and her producers, on their own initiative, found the spoof story and ran with it without bothering to take a couple of seconds to do a Google search to verify the story. So by the left’s own standards, Sarah Palin is not just smarter than the average Grizzly Bear, she’s just as smart — if not smarter — than a Rhodes Scholar.

Ignore Sarah Palin Month Doesn’t Last a Day

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 2, 2011

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

As many already know, some in the lamestream media anointed February Ignore Sarah Palin Month. Let’s not even talk about how pathetically sad it is to have to come face to face with your obsession and the need to get it under control.

When I first heard about it, I wished them well in their recovery and hoped they’d be seeking intensive therapy in the interim. Dana Milbank of The Washington Post–is in need a whole lot of help. He recently confessed:

Though it is embarrassing to admit this in public, I can no longer hide the truth. I have a Sarah Palin problem.

[…]

I feel powerless to control my obsession, even though it cheapens and demeans me.

But today is the first day of the rest of my life. And so, I hereby pledge that, beginning on Feb. 1, 2011, I will not mention Sarah Palin — in print, online or on television — for one month. Furthermore, I call on others in the news media to join me in this pledge of a Palin-free February.

Today is only February 2nd, so how did our friend, Dana, do yesterday on Day 1? Andy Barr wrote an article published in Politico today which highlights Milbank’s struggle to remain silent even on the first day of his self-imposed moratorium. Barr writes:

Dana Milbank is orchestrating a high-profile “moratorium” on covering Palin, kicking off his month-long fast yesterday by doing an interview all about it on ABC’s “Top Line” – and Sarah’s supporters are not amused.

“Do you hate clicks? Do you hate reading your stories?” ABC’s Rick Klein asked the Washington Post columnist, who declared he has “sworn off clicks and readership for the entire month of February, but I’m working about an extended opus about she who will not be named for March 1st.”

Milbank highlighted his lack of commentary by posting on the paper’s website a link of his interview – rife with allusions to and jokes about the former Alaska governor.

Palin’s supporters weren’t happy.

“Milbank couldn’t even get through the first day of his bogus boycott,” wrote a blogger for Texas for Palin, one of a network of Palin-defending sites that dinged the columnist. “This afternoon on the Post Partisan blog, Milbank wrote: ‘I survived Day One of my February Sarah Palin moratorium…’ Sorry, Skippy, but you weren’t even going to mention her name, remember?”

PalinTV – a site set up by Palin supporters to show the governor’s comments in full without the media filter – also smacked Milbank with a sarcastic tweet. “Dana Milbank on ABC today talking for 5 minutes about how he’s not talking about Palin,” it read.

While Dana Milbank can’t find the strength to honor his own Ignore Sarah Palin Month for a day, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC might want to get on board and give it a try. She embarrassed herself greatly yesterday as she reported as fact a satirical story about Governor Palin encouraging an attack on Egypt. One of the side effects of Palin Derangement Syndrome is jumping all over stories about her with no commitment to discovering facts. Another side of effect is not taking responsibility afterwards but blaming others for your ridiculous errors.

Josh of Texas4Palin covered the story. He writes:

We posted Tuesday about how MSPDS host Rachel Maddow, whom the left touts as “brilliant” (like Bill Clinton, she’s a Rhodes scholar), fell hook, line and sinker Monday for an internet spoof by a satirical website that Gov. Sarah Palin was advocating an attack on Egypt.

I will conclude today by wishing the lamestream media well in their Get Off Sarah Palin’s Back Month Ignore Sarah Palin Month and hoping MSNBC MSPDS will shut up long enough to fact-check their stories.

Just for the fun of it, take a look at how giddy Maddow is as she reports as fact this internet spoof. If it weren’t so pathetic, it might be hilarious. Okay, it is hilarious.
