Palin: Day 3 of “Good Tidings and Great Joy” Book Tour 11/14/13

Sarah Palin spent another day greeting supporters and signing “Good Tidings and Great Joy” in Wausau, WI.  Perhaps the most interesting story of the day is that Walmart had 700 books on hand and it’s being reported that the store sold out.  In fact, Breitbart has  confirmed that Sam’s Club as well as Barnes and Noble sold their complete inventory too! Special note: Gov. Palin also shared this article on her Facebook page.

From Breitbart’s Kevin Scholla:

When former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin went to Wausau, Wisconsin on Thursday, the whole city sold out of her new book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas. Palin held a book signing at the local Walmart, where a line snaked around the gigantic store (see video below) for the sold out book. Breitbart News has confirmed the town’s Sam’s Club and Barnes & Noble also sold out all their copies of her new book as well yesterday.

At Walmart, Palin greeted a multitude of well-wishers and signed book after book. Just like her Bethlehem, PA stop, she stayed late because of an abundance of supporters. She may have stayed later if not for one very relevant detail. According to a Walmart official, the store ran out of books.

Walmart wasn’t alone. The entire town of Wausau was cleaned out. A Harper Collins source told Breitbart News that along with Walmart, Wausau’s Sam’s Club and Barnes & Noble had also sold all of their copies. The stores have confirmed that all their books were sold. More

Gov. Palin posted an album of pictures 13 pictures from the Wausau signing to her Facebook page.  You’ll immediately notice how engaged she is with her supporters.  You’ll also notice that Palin rises to greet members of our nation’s military and its veterans.  (See above photo.)

The Wisconsin Rapids Tribune published the following article and provided a short video:

RIB MOUNTAIN — Carrie Kolbeck traveled all the to way to Fairbanks, Alaska, four years ago just to get a chance to hear her political hero, Sarah Palin, speak.

So when the Wausau woman heard the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate was coming to town while on a book tour, Kolbeck immediately made plans for a second meeting.

“She just believes in standing up for religious freedom, and that is a big deal to us,” said Kolbeck, 37. “I’m glad for her strength and courage. She’s a very brave woman.”

You can read the rest of the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune article and view the video here.

Gov. Palin also shared her own video (complete with cheery Christmas music) of the many people that were waiting in a line that seemed to snake through every department of Wal-Mart.  The message that accompanied the video is as follows:

Thank you, Wausau! It was great to visit with so many patriots yesterday. Thank you for letting me wish you a Merry Christmas!

The Wausau Daily has published a photo gallery here

The Wisconsin Free published this article on Palin’s book tour with an interesting quote.

One observer noted, “877 people signed up for Obamacare in the first 6 weeks. Almost as many showed up to see Sarah Palin as signed up for Obamacare.”

Day 4 will take Palin to Ft. Campbell, KY and Ft. Benning, GA.  The book  tour schedule is available here.

Palin Speaks at Southeastern University Leadership Forum (Updated)

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 8, 2013

Sarah Palin appeared at the Southeastern Leadership Forum this evening as a guest speaker.  The Ledger has posted a photo gallery and any associated stories that may be printed later will be updated here.

UPDATE

The Ledger updated their coverage of Palin’s appearance at the Southeastern University Leadership Forum and has published the following:

Palin’s Cry: Cling to Your God, Guns, Constitution

LAKELAND | Former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin was fired up about God and country when she spoke Friday at Southeastern University in Lakeland. And she was dressed for the part.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate visited the Sunshine State at the request of the organizers of the school’s seventh annual leadership forum. She was quite a presence on the stage, in a lipstick-red suit and fierce high heels.

Her passionate talk was peppered with such vibrant cries as “Cling to your God, your guns, your Constitution!” and pleas for the next generation to change the country’s moral fiber. “That will make our foundation crumble if we choose to ignore it,” she said.

Not one to tiptoe around sensitive topics, Palin got right to the point on reasons she said the country is in crisis.

“Today, look around, and don’t you wonder sometimes if, as a nation, we have forgotten God altogether? This is a crucial question,” she said.

Palin said the school asked her to talk about hope and resilience. She said she would but “not that Washington, D.C., ‘hopey-changey’ blah, blah, blah stuff, but real hope.”

Mostly, the 49-year-old hammered such topics as the corruption of Washington, D.C. — “It’s a hotbed of cronyism” — and federal spending — “The federal government is bloated, corrupt and out-of-control.”

[…]

Palin closed her talk with a battle cry.

“The future of the country depends on what you do,” she said. “God bless you.”

After the speech, Palin answered questions from Southeastern professor Christina Gard, who was Miss Alaska in 2004. It was then Palin said something that brought the strongest applause.

Asked how she dealt with critics, Palin said it’s important to know who you are, and that’s why she speaks out for God publicly in a country where she said it’s often frowned upon or against the law to talk about religious beliefs.

“God deserves so much better than what we give him,” she said. “What has happened when we can’t say his name in public?”

Palin: Here We Are

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 24, 2012

Recently posted to Sarah Palin’s Facebook page:

Pelosi asks “Where are the women?” against the HHS mandate? Kim Daniels & Helen Alvare proudly say “Here we are”!

The above is in reference to the government mandate for religious organizations to provide contraception and related services, i.e. abortion, to employees even if it is a violation of conscience.  Governor Palin then referenced an article entitled “Here We Are” from the The National Review.

Like countless other women, we’ve been closely following the Obama administration’s attempt to compel religious institutions to provide contraceptive coverage in violation of their beliefs. And like countless other women, over the past several days we’ve heard House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and others repeatedly ask those who oppose the contraceptive mandate, “Where are the women?”

Here we are.  More

S.E. Cupp On Religion, Tea Parties, Barack Obama, Michelle Bachmann, And Sarah Palin

Posted by Gary P Jackson on April 17, 2010

One of our favorite Conservative commentators, S.E. Cupp, has written a new book: “Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media’s Attack on Christianity” In support of this book S.E. sat down for an interview with Newsmax TV and discussed a variety of topics from religion, and the media’s continual disdain thereof, as well as Barack Obama’s radicalism and how the media simply can’t handle strong, smart, and attractive Conservative women.

S. E. makes some interesting and provocative points:

On religion, media bias, and her atheism:

I am an atheist but I’m not one of those militant atheists. I simply don’t believe. I envy the faithful. I’ve always defended religious freedom. I’m grateful for mine and I’m grateful for everyone else’s.”

I defend especially Christianity in this country because it seems to be under attack, and I’m bothered by the idea that the media has taken a side in this fight. I’m really bothered as a writer, as a member of the press, that the Fourth Estate has become so openly hostile to 80 percent of the country. This is a huge majority. And 90 percent of the country believes in God.

To go after a majority like this means they’re really not a representative media. They don’t deserve to be called mainstream.

I think the media is socially secular and increasingly so, and I think the judgment and the morality inherent in Christianity or any religious system is really threatening to a secularist movement like the media. If the media can go on unjudged, I think that makes them fairly happy.

I knew what I was getting into when I started researching this book, but I did not know the scope and scale until I really got into it. It’s not just The New York Times and CNN and MSNBC, places you’d expect. It’s on the blogosphere. It’s online. It’s the Huffington Post. It’s Salon.com. It’s USA Today. It’s radio. It’s everywhere. You really have to look hard not to find it.

The “worst offenders” include be Salon.com, Cupp says. “CNN is pretty bad. The New York Times is pretty bad only because of the clout and influence that paper has. You would expect them to be a bit more responsible. MSNBC is terrible. Some of the talking heads there like Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews — these guys really have it out for Christianity.”

On Barack Obama:

[Barack Obama has an] “affinity for radical Marxist theology.”

If you look at some of his own testimony about his religious education, whether in his book or his speeches, he discusses at length his decision to follow black liberation theology, the kind of Christianity espoused by Reverend [Jeremiah] Wright and a number of other well-known pastors around the country.”

Obama describes it as not particularly a Christ-driven move on his part but as sort of a recognition of the black social causes of the time. That’s what really drove him into Christianity. When you actually read about it, it’s far more radical than the Pentecostalism of Sarah Palin or the Baptism of a Mike Huckabee. Yet those folks are constantly painted by the liberal media as being fanatical and fringe.

“If anyone bothered to look at Obama’s black liberation theology, they would have no choice but to recognize that it’s an incredibly radical — and I would even say extreme — version of Christianity.

On Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, conservatism, and the left wing media’s inability to deal with “pretty” Conservative women:

One, the liberal media always have a difficult time dealing with pretty, conservative women. They just don’t know what to make of it. She [Sarah Palin] can’t be that smart because she’s too pretty. She can’t be galvanizing because she’s too dumb.

Two, they’re frustrated by the fact that this is a self-made woman. They spent eight years telling us that George W. Bush was this nepotism experiment gone wrong. Well, here’s a woman who came from nothing, who worked her way up to become a successful wife and mother, had an amazing political career — the first female governor of Alaska and the youngest.

This is unequivocally an accomplished woman, and the right kind of accomplished woman if you ask the liberal media — the kind that did it on her own. That bothers them because they really dislike her policies.

I think it takes a lot of courage in today’s day and age to stand up as Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin have and say look, I believe there’s a traditional role for the family. I believe in traditional values. I’m a proud Christian.

That is an act of courage today, sadly. And I think the liberal media wants to position a Bachmann or a Palin as somehow backwards or lost in time, unsophisticated, a relic.”

Conservatism rightly resists the changing tide, the changing social mores. The whole idea of conservatism is to preserve what we think is good. So these flag bearers like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, women no less, I think are really throwing mud in the eye of the liberals who would rather see them locked up in some museum.”
