Has Governor Palin’s Flame Gone Out?

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 10, 2012

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

As I was driving tonight, I was listening to Michael Savage, which generally I do only in small doses. Tonight only confirmed the wisdom in that approach. For someone who prides himself on being brilliant and well-versed in every issue of the day, he certainly appears to be out of the political loop. He asked a question that shocked me: “What ever happened to Sarah Palin?” as if she has gone AWOL without a trace. And he was serious. He then went on to say that she has flamed out.

Flamed out? Is he talking about the same Governor Palin Scott Conroy wrote about today in an article called “Sarah Palin Set to Re-emerge at CPAC,” an article which, in spite of its title, actually acknowledges that she hasn’t gone anywhere?

Despite her lower profile in recent months, Palin has left a mark on this presidential cycle through her frequent TV appearances on the Fox News Channel, which she conducts from a home studio in Alaska.

Governor Palin has been the go-to player of presidential politics on Hannity, On the Record, Justice w/ Judge Jeanine, and Special Report. She even made an appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s The Factor, something viewers had not seen in many months. Is this the same Governor Palin Michael Savage thinks has disappeared into the night? He even stated that he knows more about these things than the rest of us do, and he proceeded to tell listeners how much he likes what she has to say but isn’t a fan, that women don’t like her, that she would not have been an electable candidate, blah, blah, blah. What universe do such “brilliant” people live on?

Anyone paying attention knows full well that the Governor, while remaining mostly in Alaska lately, has probably had more successive television appearances than she had when many expected her to throw her own hat in the 2012 GOP presidential ring. While I, like many others, never wanted to hear her say, “I don’t need a title to make a difference,” she certainly has demonstrated that she meant exactly what she said. Even without a title, her opinions have been sought after, and her wisdom has been echoed. She has talked about the necessity of vetting in this primary election season. She has pushed for the primary process to continue for the purpose of producing the best candidate who can defeat President Obama. She has laid out the positives of each candidate, while pointing out areas of weakness or aspects of each record that need clarification. She has repeatedly worked to unify the party by maintaining that every GOP candidate is “infinitely better” than President Obama. Without question, she has been an important part of this 2012 election cycle, and her influence does not appear to be waning at all.

Perhaps Mr. Savage will emerge, from wherever he’s been hibernating, to catch Governor Palin this weekend as she gives the keynote address that multitudes of conservatives will gather to hear tomorrow at CPAC, or to tune in the next day when Chris Wallace interviews her on Fox News Sunday. The question, therefore, to pose to Michael Savage–self-professed know-it-all that he is–would be “Where have you been?” because Governor Palin hasn’t gone anywhere. On the contrary, she has remained in the fight to progress this country and to help make sure the next four years are better than the previous four. She has stayed in the battle without the support of the establishment, without selling her soul to DC insiders, and yes, without a title. However, she has done so with the support of we the people who recognize that she is still the boldest common sense, politically astute conservative voice in the country today.

Not only has her flame not gone out, but Governor Palin continues to set aflame the masses of Americans who love their country, respect their Constitution, and embrace the message of American restoration that she regularly trumpets–and is asked to trumpet. In fact, she blows that trumpet so loudly, so clearly, and so consistently that the only way one can miss it is if his head is buried in the sand.

Palin-Beck ‘Defending the Republic’ Appearance Reported

Posted by Adrienne Ross on August 16, 2011

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

FM NewsTalk 97.1 out of St. Louis reports “Defending the Republic,” an event scheduled for October 7th at 7:30 p.m. To my knowledge, Governor Palin has not made a public statement about this function, but if/when she does, I will post her comments.

Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are coming to town for a once in a lifetime event and you don’t want to miss it. FM NewsTalk 97.1 and Hansen’s Tree Service proudly present Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck, Friday October 7th, at the Family Arena.

[…]

Join FM NewsTalk 97.1 as two of our country’s leading conservative standard bearers share the same stage. Sarah Palin first made history on December 4, 2006 when she was sworn in as the first female governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped her to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket.

Glenn Beck, known for his quick wit, candid opinions, and engaging personality, has attracted millions of viewers and listeners throughout the United States with The Glenn Beck Program. His radio show is heard on over 400 stations. It is the third highest-rated national radio talk show among adults ages 25 to 54.

Do not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the fusion of two intellectual conservatives as they Defend the Republic on the Family Arena stage.

More here.

The general public will be able to purchase tickets this Friday, August 19th, through Metrotix.

For the benefit of those who have voiced concern that this new event in October means Governor Palin has decided not to run for President, Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics tweets the following nerve-calmer:

@GOP12 Am told the Palin/Beck appearance was arranged 6 months ago, so I wouldn’t read any tea leaves there

CBS News Interviews Scott Conroy about Governor Palin’s 2012 Intentions

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 30, 2011

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

Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics broke the news just a few days ago that Governor Palin is keynoting a tea party rally in Iowa on September 3rd. Immediately, speculations began to fly. Will this be the day she announces her 2012 run for the presidency? Good question. It is, after all, three years to the date of her stellar 2008 RNC speech.

Personally, I don’t think she will announce on any date that connects her to the McCain campaign. Instead, I’m hopeful that she’ll announce sooner. Of course, that’s just speculation on my part. As most people know, no one is really certain what Governor Palin will do. Or more accurately, as they say in Alaska, “Only God and Todd know. Only God and Todd.” Governor Palin is nothing if not unconventional, which is just one reason we respect her so vehemently. She is the antithesis of politics-as-usual. The good news is we’ll all know soon enough.

CBS News conducted an interview with Scott Conroy in which he discussed the likelihood of the Governor entering the race. Enjoy:

Scott Conroy: Palin to Keynote Tea Party Rally in Iowa

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 27, 2011

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

Via Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics:

In the latest indication that her sights are still set on a presidential run, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has accepted an invitation to keynote a Tea Party rally in Waukee, Iowa, on Sept. 3, RealClearPolitics has learned.

The Labor Day weekend visit to the nation’s first voting state comes after Palin indicated during an appearance on Fox News earlier this month that she would make her decision about whether to launch a campaign in August or September.

All signs now point to September as the month when Palin would throw her hat into the ring, as logistical concerns ranging from fundraising to getting her name on the ballot in various states would likely preclude further delay.

Many prominent political analysts and Republican operatives have expressed skepticism that Palin is seriously considering a presidential bid, since she has not taken many of the steps that candidates traditionally take before jumping into the race, such as signing early-state consultants, contacting key powerbrokers and boosting their travel schedules.

But Palin has a long history of shunning the Republican Party machinery and taking an unconventional approach to campaigns — a mind-set that appears to have been in play throughout the past several months.

Palin’s latest appearance in Iowa will come just two days after “The Undefeated,” a documentary film spotlighting her accomplishments in Alaska, will be released on Pay-Per-View and video-on-demand. In the film, Palin is portrayed as a continual thorn in the Republican establishment’s side. And it is the GOP, rather than the Democratic Party, that garners the better part of the movie’s scorn.

If Palin were to announce a White House run, the theme of her campaign would almost certainly focus on resisting the ingrained political culture and what she sees as being wrong with the status quo, and much of the Republican Party itself, in addition to continuing to offer one of the most strident contrasts to President Obama’s policies.

The outdoor rally on the first Saturday in September will take place at a field in Waukee, located just outside of Des Moines, and will be hosted by the Tea Party of America — an Iowa-based political action committee that was founded in May.

The midday affair will be the new group’s kickoff event and is sure to generate a large crowd and massive media attention.

One of the Tea Party of America’s co-founders, Charlie Gruschow, had previously founded the Des Moines Tea Party before splintering off to start a new group with some like-minded colleagues.

Gruschow praised the work of a highly motivated group of volunteers who have been setting the groundwork in Iowa for a Palin campaign, which almost all of them deem to be inevitable.

“I can only surmise that she’s very, very popular here,” Gruschow said of Palin’s level of support among Republican caucus-goers in Iowa. “And it didn’t hurt at all when she introduced her movie in Pella. The feedback I’ve gotten was it was an awesome movie, and there are more people becoming more endeared to her.”

“The Undefeated” Film Premieres in June

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 24, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – MotivationTruth

There’s breaking news tonight. A new film about Governor Palin will premiere in June. This certainly appears to indicate Game On. While those intent on doing the Governor harm further embarrass themselves with disloyalty, mischaracterizations, and outright lies, she has put her stamp of approval on a film that will shed more light on the truth about her political career, her record, and her credentials, you know–the things that matter.

Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics reports:

Shortly after Republicans swept last November to a historic victory in which Sarah Palin was credited with playing a central role, the former Alaska governor pulled aside her close aide, Rebecca Mansour, to discuss a hush-hush assignment: Reach out to conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon with a request. Ask him if he would make a series of videos extolling Palin’s governorship and laying to rest lingering questions about her controversial decision to resign from office with a year-and-a-half left in her first term. It was this abdication, Palin knew, that had made her damaged goods in the eyes of some Republicans who once were eager to get behind her potential 2012 presidential campaign.

The response was more positive than Palin could have hoped for. He’d make a feature-length movie, Bannon told Mansour, and he insisted upon taking complete control and financing it himself — to the tune of $1 million.

The fruits of that initial conversation are now complete. The result is a two-hour-long, sweeping epic, a rough cut of which Bannon screened privately for Sarah and Todd Palin last Wednesday in Arizona, where Alaska’s most famous couple has been rumored to have purchased a new home. When it premieres in Iowa next month, the film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin’s prospective presidential campaign — an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won’t run.

Bannon, a former naval officer and ex-Goldman Sachs banker, sees his documentary as the first step in Palin’s effort to rebuild her image in the eyes of voters who may have soured on her, yet might reconsider if old caricatures begin to fade. The film will also appeal to staunch Palin supporters who have long celebrated her biting rhetoric and conservative populism yet know little about her record in Alaska and have perhaps written her off as presidential material.

“This film is a call to action for a campaign like 1976: Reagan vs. the establishment,” Bannon told RealClearPolitics. “Let’s have a good old-fashioned brouhaha.”

RealClearPolitics was recently given an exclusive screening of a rough cut of the now finished film, which Bannon designed, in part, to help catapult Palin from the presidential afterthought she has become in the eyes of many pundits directly to the front lines of the 2012 GOP conversation.

[…]

Although Palin is not interviewed directly, the film features on-camera interviews and commentaries from 10 Alaskans who played different roles in her political rise, as well as six Lower 48 denizens who defend her in more visceral terms, including prominent conservative firebrands Mark Levin, Andrew Breitbart and Tammy Bruce.

Divided into three acts, the film makes the case that despite the now cliched label, Palin was indeed a maverick who confronted the powerful forces lined up against her to achieve wide-ranging success in a short period of time. The second part of the film’s message is just as clear, if more subjective: that Sarah Palin is the only conservative leader who can both build on the legacy of the Reagan Revolution and bring the ideals of the tea party movement to the Oval Office.

[…]

In the last couple of months, Palin has delivered major policy speeches, hired a chief of staff, made a well-publicized foreign trip that included a visit with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, all the while remaining consistent about her vow — first made just days after the 2008 campaign ended — that she would “crash through” any of the “open doors” that might lead to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Bannon intends to premiere the film in Iowa late next month before expanding the release to New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. After the initial rollout in the four early voting states, the filmmaker will eventually release it to somewhere between 50 and 100 markets nationwide.

[…]

If she does decide to run, “The Undefeated” will be the key element to her initial coming-out party. The film’s impending release — and the frenzied media attention that it is sure to generate — will serve as a vivid wake-up call that despite the many obstacles in front of her, Palin’s entry into the race would turn the campaign on its head in an instant, just as it did in 2008.

As she mulls her decision in the coming weeks, the other Republican candidates in the field will be left to prepare for a hibernating grizzly who appears poised to rise up once again.

It just might be that time!

CBS’ Scott Conroy Interviews Me & Other Palin Supporters

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 3, 2010

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

Scott Conroy, journalist for CBS and co-author of Sarah from Alaska, interviewed me and several Palin supporters and published his story today on CBSNews.com. His story relied mainly on interviews conducted with members of 1) Hillbuzz, the ardent Hillary Clinton and now Palin supporters and 2) Conservatives4Palin, for which I also write.

Given the fact that it’s CBS, one should take note of how fair the overall piece is. It details the Governor’s appeal to a diverse population of Americans and captures the ability she possesses to inspire them to action.

From the C4P family, he interviewed Nicole Coulter, Sapwolf, site co-founder Rebecca Mansour, who now works for Governor Palin, and yours truly.

The article is quite long, so I will give you an overview. I encourage you to click here to read Conroy’s full piece.

Most importantly, there may be no other politician who retains the level of devotion that Palin enjoys among millions of Americans. They may be in the minority, but they are certainly not lacking in zeal.

“We would literally walk across hot broken glass for this woman,” says Nicole Coulter (at left), a frequent contributor to the most prominent pro-Palin web site, Conservatives4Palin.com, which serves as an up-to-the-second source of news and analysis of all things Palin. “She represents something very powerful. It’s deeper than politics. It’s much, much deeper than politics. It’s cultural. It’s just this zeitgeist of raw emotion, kind of what our country is all about.”

Of course, other national politicians attract passionate support, but with Palin’s biggest fans, the devotion to the former Alaska governor resides on a deeply personal level that seems unique in American life.

“She’s our family, and you protect your family; it’s like the mafia,” Coulter says. “She’s just one of us, and when they insult her, they’re insulting millions of us.”

[…]

Thirty-nine-year-old seventh grade English teacher Adrienne Ross (at left) started her pro-Palin web site, MotivationTruth, soon after Election Day in 2008. In July of 2009, Ross left her home in Hudson, New York, for a month-long trip to Alaska. It was a Palin pilgrimage of sorts that doubled as a sightseeing trip.

“I was really drawn to go,” says Ross, who is also a member of the Federal Election Commission-registered 2012 Draft Sarah Committee. “This might seem kind of strange, but I just felt to go. I felt like I was supposed to go.”

Ross marched in the Fourth of July parade in Wasilla with Palin’s parents and daughter Piper and was there at the picnic in Fairbanks when Palin handed over the state’s reigns of power to incoming Gov. Sean Parnell.

[…]

“She is a big part of my life,” Ross says. “I spend a lot of my time on Palin-centered things.”

Ross and other prominent members of what might best be described as the “Sarah Palin community” reject the notion that they are blind followers in a political cult of personality. They are clearly sensitive to being painted with a label that they instead attribute to President Obama’s biggest fans.

“I’m sure she’s had some impact on it, but I wouldn’t go as far to say she’s changed my life, and I’m suddenly hearing music and the light from above is shining on me,” says Josh Painter, who manages a Palin blog roll and edits Texas4Palin from his hometown of Bryan, Texas. “That’s Barack Obama territory-he’s ‘The One.’ Sarah Palin is just a woman we relate to.”

Of all the pro-Palin blogs, Conservatives4Palin consistently has the biggest impact and reach. Its influence is evident in that it is the only online destination specifically devoted to supporting a potential 2012 candidate to make a recent list of the 100 most popular conservative web sites.

Most of Conservatives4Palin’s contributors are not shy about their desire to see Palin run for president in 2012.

Palin herself long ago took notice of the site, giving it one of her patented shout-outs in her best selling book. She even scooped up two of its founding contributors last year and hired them to paid positions on her political staff.

“She’s always said the best ideas don’t come out of Washington, DC, and so there’s no reason why she wouldn’t follow that belief in choosing her staff,” says Rebecca Mansour, one of the former Conservatives4Palin bloggers turned current Palin staffer.

[…]

Thomas Chanteloup, a 45-year-old consultant for a software company consultant who blogs under the moniker “Sapwolf” on Conservatives4Palin, vows that he will quit his job to take up temporary residence in Iowa next year on Palin’s behalf.

“When she’s criticized, it’s like that person is showing unfair criticism or vitriol against my mother or daughter,” says Chanteloup, who says he has seen Palin speak in person about a dozen times and has shook her hand on about six occasions. “I take it personally.”

It certainly is true that Governor Palin’s army is far-reaching, unapologetic, and relentless. With innumerable lies and attacks on her and the Palin family, her “loyal online defenders,” as Scott Conroy coins us, are committed to being voices of truth and pillars of support upon which she can lean. And should she take the plunge into running for the presidency in 2012, she will certainly not be lacking people who will go to proverbial hell and back on her behalf.
