Video: Governor Palin and Greta Discuss Cruz, Cheney, RNC, and More

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 1, 2012

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

Governor Palin appeared On the Record tonight and talked to Greta Van Susteren about a number of topics. They discussed the Ted Cruz’s victory, Chick-fil-A, traditional marriage, Dick Cheney, and the Republican National Convention. The Governor, I believe, was more vocal than I’ve ever seen her in calling out the GOP establishment and their little inside baseball games, where they seem content to use her as the baseball. Despite it all, as she expressed tonight, she continues to work hard and fight for America’s restoration.

Excellent kick-butt interview:

Governor Palin Will Announce RNC Plans Soon

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 26, 2012

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

When Governor Palin accompanied her husband to the NBC party this week to promote the network’s fall lineup, which includes Stars Earn Stripes, featuring Todd Palin, she was asked a very important question. With all the buzz lately about Mitt Romney’s failure to date to invite her to speak at the Republican National Convention, and with many prominent figures stating she absolutely should have a major speaking role, it only makes sense that she would be asked about it.

Newsmax reports:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she will decide this week whether to attend the Republican convention in Tampa next month.

“We’ll have an announcement in a couple of days,” she told a reporter for the Tampa Bay Times Wednesday. “I don’t know if we’ll do anything fancy as a press conference, but we’ll get the word out.”

[…]

Several Republican luminaries have called for Palin to serve as a speaker at the Aug. 27-30 convention. That includes South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, and commentator Pat Buchanan.

Robert Ringer: Palin is One of Romney’s Worst Nightmares

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 24, 2012

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

In a rather hard-hitting piece, Robert Ringer takes Mitt Romney to task for his “tepid” “RINOsaurus Rex” ways, his inability to capture the endorsements, as of yet, of Governor Palin and Representative Ron Paul, and his failure, to date, to invite them to speak at the Republican National Convention.

Now, Governor Palin has said numerous times that she will support whoever the GOP nominee is, for she firmly embraces ABO–Anybody But Obama. I’m sure she will do just that. However, I believe Ringer makes some very good points, as not all of the Governor’s supporters are as gracious as she is, and many see this perceived Convention snub as the last straw, since Romney’s people have a habit of attacking Governor Palin.

Ringer writes:

If it weren’t so tragic and there weren’t so much at stake, the tiptoe strategy of the Romney Tepid Team would actually be funny to watch. Here you have a group of archetypal RINOs who were clever and tough enough to figure out how to destroy the relatively weak Republican primary field while Romney patiently waited his turn – next in line behind John McMush – to be anointed by the Republican establishment.

Since the Republican debates ended, however, Romney has been so weak-kneed that he’s barely been able to keep pace with a president whom everyone but the most naive among us now realizes is a dedicated Marxist. Romney and his Tepid Team apparently feel confident that he can quietly slip through the clogged media filters all the way to Tampa, get the official nomination, then squeak out a win in November without making a wave in the process.

But it may not be quite that easy for Romney, because he still has to figure out how to deal with those pesky P & P problems: Sarah Palin and Ron Paul. You can just feel the fear emanating from the Romney control-and-command center at the thought of these two highly principled liberty lovers roaming around loose.

[…]

To the great annoyance of the Republican establishment, Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin has never officially endorsed him. Worse, on numerous occasions she has warned the Romney people that they had better pay attention to Ron Paul’s message. The truth be known, Palin’s ideological beliefs are a lot closer to Ron Paul’s than to Mitt Romney’s.

The gonadless Romney team knows it cannot afford to allow Palin to speak at the convention, because she might – Gasp! – say what she really believes about the whole odoriferous situation that Republicans have once again managed to get themselves into.

Worse still, they haven’t even officially invited Palin to the convention. This is beyond a slap in the face. But, in a spirit of charity, let’s be sympathetic to Mitt Romney’s dilemma. Watching a turtle cross the road would be more exciting than listening to Romney speak in Tampa, so how in the world can the Tepid Team afford to take a chance on Sarah Palin’s working the crowd into a frenzy?

After all, a Palin-induced frenzy would be a stark reminder to true conservatives that the guys in the over-starched white collars and size small jockey shorts have once again succeeded in commandeering the Republican nominating process – and we all know how that usually plays out, even if they win.

If Ron Paul and Sarah Palin do not endorse Romney, and if a large number of their supporters stay away from the polls on November 6, the Marxmeister in the White House, who did everything he possibly could to self-destruct, could actually achieve the unthinkable: win reelection!

Lord to Romney: Invite Governor Palin to Speak at the Convention ‘Post Haste’

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 17, 2012

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

No, not that Lord, although He might also agree.

Jeffrey Lord, of The American Spectator, joined with others today to express disapproval in what appears to be Mitt Romney’s calculated decision not to invite Governor Palin to speak at the Republican National Convention. Now, these aren’t people who are doting fans of the Governor with an agenda to get their favorite conservative to the big dance. Rather, these are people who understand what is at stake and what she brings to this election. I hope Romney is paying attention because snubbing Palin is a nonsensical decision.

In an article entitled “Romney Campaign Disses Palin: Throws Party Unity Overboard,” Lord writes:

So now come all these news reports (just for example, here, here, here, and here) that Team Romney has decided deliberately — deliberately — to trash Sarah Palin by not inviting her to the Tampa convention.

And they expect people to rally to their candidate when they are out there sticking their finger in the eye of the party’s base? Sending a message to the Tea Party to go take a flying leap?

If this is true, and no less than Governor Palin herself has said she is uninvited, one can only wonder:

What are these wizards of smart thinking?

Historically, people who are trashed by their own party employ the one entirely fatal weapon they have at their disposal: they stay home in November.

[…]

What should be done? Having had the opportunity to once upon-a-time work on this kind of issue myself, here’s the answer.

First, quickly and publicly remedy this by graciously inviting Governor Palin.

Second. As the 2008 nominees, Senator McCain and Governor Palin should have some place and/or role of honor at the convention — in this case, yes, speaking slots for both.

[…]

Get Governor Palin invited now. Post haste.

She was the first woman VP nominee of the Republican Party. She has more than earned simple, basic respect.

Don’t add to Governor Romney’s problems by making him seem like an ungracious, small man.

He quite decidedly isn’t. But the lights are on now — people are paying attention. He has real enemies out there. He will need all the help he can get not just to win, but to govern.

And that specifically includes Governor Palin.

Read the full article here.

Romney has time to turn this around, and perhaps he will demonstrate, in this situation, what he has demonstrated in the business world: that he is capable of making the right decision at the right time. We the people are waiting.

Laura Ingraham and Newt Gingrich: Governor Palin Must Receive Invite to speak at Convention

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 17, 2012

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

It’s good to hear from other voices in the conservative movement who recognize that Governor Palin should be a speaker at the Republican National Convention. Laura Ingraham took to Twitter to express her views and even quoted former presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, who agrees:

Via Steve Flesher, here are images of those tweets:

Here’s the audio of Laura Ingraham’s conversation with Gingrich on her radio show:

No RNC Invitation Because ‘Palin is Irrelevant’ Nonsense

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 17, 2012

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

The political world is all abuzz with discussion of the fact that Mitt Romney has not yet invited Governor Palin to speak at the Republican National Convention next month in Tampa, which I covered here. I just knew the meme would be how irrelevant she is now, and I knew her detractors would jump up and down at the news. The truth is anyone with a modicum of common sense knows that no one wastes time writing articles about irrelevant people to express how irrelevant they are! The fact that they write about Governor Palin proves she’s relevant. See, they hurt their own credibility with their own actions.

Furthermore, anyone who doesn’t acknowledge that the Governor will light the Convention on fire, draw mega media attention to it, and articulate the conservative message with a boldness no one else possesses is seriously deranged, in denial–or simply a hater.

Contrary to an asinine article published in The Atlantic, it’s Romney’s own issues, rather than Governor Palin’s, that has kept back the invitation to the former vice presidential candidate, an invitation that should be a no-brainer. Stacy Drake dismembers the piece, authored by Elspeth Reeve:

Just ask anyone who has seen her speak in person, within the last few months. Or ask one of the 1,500 people who gathered in 100 degree heat to see her speak in Michigan last weekend. Governor Palin is still very much a movement leader with “rock star” popularity, and the lefties can’t stand it.

[…]

Governor Palin didn’t get passed over by Mitt Romney and the RNC because she’s losing her influence, quite the contrary. If Governor Palin did attend the Republican Convention, and delivered a prime-time address, she would outshine their candidate a hundred times over. She didn’t mean to upstage John McCain in 2008, but she did, just by being herself. There is no doubt that Romney’s advisers aren’t aware of that. It’s nothing more than a left-wing pipe dream to think she wasn’t invited because she’s losing her stature.

The bottom-line is that she wasn’t invited to the GOP Convention because their 2012 nominee hasn’t extended an invitation. It fits the way Mitt Romney has treated Governor Palin ever since his staff started publicly trashing her before the 2008 election. It also fits the way the GOP establishment treats outsiders and reformers.

I hope The Atlantic is proud that they did their part to assist the good ole boys in the GOP establishment, cover their backsides, with this scatterbrained hit-piece.

Read Stacy’s full article here.

The GOP needs all the excitement it can get with Mitt Romney as the nominee. It also needs a true conservative message shouted from the rooftops to combat the leftist nonsense President Obama is spewing all over the nation. Who better for the task than Governor Palin? Hopefully, Mitt Romney and the GOP establishment will come to their senses, put egos aside, and do the common sense thing: invite the de facto leader of the tea party movement, the most recognizable voice for conservatism, and the only woman to ever be on a Republican ticket for vice president to speak at the Republican National Convention.

Like I said, it’s a no-brainer.

Governor Palin, Mitt Romney, and the 2012 Republican National Convention

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 15, 2012

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

With the Republican National Convention at the end of August in Tampa, many have wondered what role Governor Palin will play. Just a smidgen of common sense would tell Mitt Romney and the GOP establishment that she needs to have a significant role there. The former Vice Presidential candidate should be addressing the audience in a speech that would surely electrify, something Romney simply isn’t able to do. If Romney is as bright as some say he is, he should surely be insisting on such a thing. So far he has not.

Via Peter J. Boyer (emphasis added):

Queries to the Romney camp about any possible Palin role at the convention meet with a stony silence. Palin does not seem surprised. “What can I say?” she responded in an email from Alaska, when asked by Newsweek about the convention, just before heading to Michigan to deliver an Obama-thumping speech. “I’m sure I’m not the only one accepting consequences for calling out both sides of the aisle for spending too much money, putting us on the road to bankruptcy, and engaging in crony capitalism.”

“In accepting those consequences,” she added, “one must remember this isn’t Sadie Hawkins and you don’t invite yourself and a date to the Big Dance.”

[…]

The Romney camp will not comment on Palin, or on plans for the convention, but one adviser associated with the campaign suggested that Palin would be prohibited from speaking at the Republican convention by her contract with Fox News. “It’s true I’m prohibited from doing some things,” Palin says, “but this is the first I’ve heard anyone suggest that as an excuse, er, reason to stay away from engaging in the presidential race. I’m quite confident Fox’s top brass would never strip anyone of their First Amendment rights in this regard.” (Fox says her contract would not prohibit speaking at the convention if she sought permission.)

Palin is keeping the dates open in late August, just in case. In any event, she says, she plans to be politically active between now and November, starting with a Michigan Tea Party appearance, sponsored by Americans for Prosperity. “No matter the Romney campaign strategy,” she says, “I intend to do all I can to join others in motivating the grassroots made up of independents and constitutional conservatives who can replace Barack Obama at the ballot box.”

[…]

Team Romney may be well advised to consider bringing Palin inside the tent. Whether she’s in Tampa for the convention or not, she will be out there somewhere, and talking.

This is Boyer’s take, and he clearly knows the power Governor Palin has and the enthusiasm she inspires. So what are the folks saying? Do they agree? Here are a couple snippets from the article to answer those questions:

“Romney’s just not a fighter,” says Jenny Beth Martin, head of the Tea Party Patriots, the largest of the activist groups. “That’s why it would be good for him to have someone like Palin speaking at the convention. He needs to do something to rile up his base, to make them enthusiastic. And I don’t mean just the Tea Party. I mean die-hard Republicans. I live in the second-most-Republican county in the state of Georgia, and the folks around here are not enthusiastic about him.”

“Palin is the female Ronald Reagan of our time,” says Kremer of the Tea Party Express. “There’s no one that excites the base, and energizes the base, the way that Sarah Palin does. There’s just not.”

Boyer himself adds:

Palin would certainly light up the base at the convention—her 2008 vice-presidential acceptance speech was, in terms of partisan enthusiasm, the high-water mark of the McCain campaign

The Republican National Convention will be held August 27th through August 30th in Tampa, Florida.

Alaska’s Republican National Committeewoman Addresses Attacks Against Trig Palin

Posted by traceyporreca on April 23, 2011


I was approached today by Debbie Joslin, Republican National Committeewoman for the State of Alaska, and friend of mine. She is also a friend of Sarah Palin and has known her for a long time. We started discussing the recent “Wonkette” article (see here)and Debbie mentioned she was writing an article to address it. I offered to share it with our readers and she accepted. Debbie has a lot of personal experience with this subject, as you will read. I’m so pleased to share this with all our readers. Thank you, Debbie, for this heartfelt article.

The recent attacks on Trig Palin remind me of something my brother frequently says: “People who call names aren’t very smart.” My brother Danny is 50 years old and in many ways is like a child; he is developmentally disabled. He grew up with neighborhood bullies calling him a “retard” and other such names. When I was a kid, I stood up for my brother against those bullies.

Today I have a few words for the “progressive elitists” who are treating Trig Palin the same way Danny was treated. These juvenile diatribes may be aimed at Trig Palin, but many of us take them personally. These attacks against Trig are a slam against everyone who has a developmental disability and those who love them. If you disagree with something Sarah Palin says, attack her ideas, not her toddler.

I feel like I know Trig a little; I held him as an infant, and I know his mom. Sarah Palin sent me an encouraging note after my own son, Isaiah, died at one month old from complications of Trisomy 13 (Patua Syndrome). Children with Trisomy 13 are profoundly disabled; learning to speak and to walk are huge achievements. So, between my brother, Danny, and my son, Isaiah, I have license to speak on this subject.

As an adult, I have been with my brother in public and had “grownup” men in expensive suits say rude things and act disgusted at having to sit close to my brother on an airplane. I have had people who were certainly old enough to know better treat my brother with contempt. I have experienced the loathing the left has for those who are developmentally disabled. In 1999, doctors urged me to abort my disabled son or leave him to die after birth.

I was at the Republican National Convention in 2008 when Sarah Palin’s family joined her on the stage. I might add that John McCain’s family was on that stage too. Barack Obama also had his family on the stage of the Democratic Convention. Out of all that, Trig is a “prop”? I cried that night when I saw Trig being held by his parents. I cried for my brother and my own son and for all of the other people (yes, they ARE people!) who have been treated like second class citizens in this country. I cried because my own parents were ashamed of my brother. I was –and still am- so happy for Trig because he has parents who cherish him and recognize his worth. I cried because I felt hope that the days when people were judged to have worth only if their IQ was socially acceptable, seemed to be coming to an end.

Was I wrong? Is it still cool to call someone a retard? I hope not. But, in case I am wrong, remember what my (very smart) brother says: “People who call names aren’t very smart.”
